Pretty Damn Good Work!

New Orleans Steps Up Evacuation

I'm getting a little bit flamed out about of this Katrina Blame Game crap. Most of the critcisim is from partisan and uniformed malcontents who would blame Bush for their toilet overflowing when they themselves stuff it full of crap.

So consider this an informed rant.

I've spent the better part of the day examining some of the reports and data in the days leading up to the storm.

The verdict:

1. The Mayor and the Governor of Louisiana are idiots. Worse than that, they are proud idiots - the most dangerous kind.

Knowing full well what was coming towards them they acted up to the last minute as if Louis Armstrong would decend from the heavens and with his mighty cheeks blow the hurricane away. People are dead because buses (over 400 of them) sat in a parking lot. History has never witnessed such ineptitude. Both should be tried and jailed.

Not to mention (Ok, I will) that packing people into a stadium with no more than vending machines (that operate on electricity) for food and water is no only idiotic, it's criminal as well. The Mayor under emergency directive could have had a local Walmart, Kmart give up it's entire inventory to feed the people inside. That's the purpose of an emergency directive.

Being afraid to "call the shot" because you fear "lawsuits" from businesses if the storm misses is - well, gutless. Call the shot - pay the piper later. Freaking coward.

2. Outside of a few really good reporters on different networks, by and large the MSM are idiots. They began this "blame Bush" meme even before facts were known - simply to take a cheap political shot at the President in a time of crisis. Pathetic.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, the history here is that the Federal Government had to move in only after it was determined that the local and state government were totally incompentent. They had to be relieved of duty.

Once that was accomplished, the resultant move of materials and equipment into the area of operations was nothing more than outstanding.

If you look to the left at my bio you'll see one of my military specialties while in the Army was logistics. For the uninformed (usually means liberals and media) that means "beans, crap paper and bullets". My job was to move material to where it needed to be. contrary to popular and uninformed opionion that doesn't hop on a dime. The force of the reponse once the idiot Governor Blanco was moved to the side shows me that it was waiting for her to simply ask for it - she didn't, the Government relieved her of her duties and went to work.

+96 hour response is outstanding, freaking unbelievable!

Look at what has happened since the Goverment came to town:

Lives Saved (rescues performed) – 49,800
People housed in shelters – 141,500
MREs provided (meals) – 22.5 million
Water provided (liters) – 53.3 million

Plus..

Citizens Evacuated 35,000

Shelters constructed 499

National Guard personnel 35,000

U.S. Coast Guard personnel 4,000

FEMA responders 5,000


In two words...

Freaking outstanding!

Good work!

How many did Paul Krugman and Maureen Dowd of the NY Times feed today?

Thought so...

UPDATE: Paul over atWizbang tells it like it is!

Calling Mr. Fitzgerald?

**UPDATED AND BUMPED****

As I told you about in this post yesterday as a source confirmed to me that the Justice Department has launched a probe into the NSA leak. Mr. Risen, you are in trouble - prepare your defense. I told you so.

The White House will be announcing the probe at about 12:30pm. My source tells me that this probe will most likely result in another prosecutor being assigned as of course Fitzgerald is still busy/dizzy on the Plame/Game No-Leak. Additionally, other probes into other recent leaks such as the CIA 'prisons'leak is in the works as well. As I said, this is the NEW Bush - on the attack - it's no more Mr. Nice Guy!

About time! Also covering Michelle Malkin

UPDATE II: Looks like I owe my source big time as yet another tip comes true as the Washington Post is on the target list as well for the CIA Prison leak.

Is the lid about to be blown off Able Danger?

Those who have been wishing for a full blown Able Danger investigation are about to get their wish. The "gate" has been unlocked.

9/11 Iraqi Connection

With Democrats calling for yet more investigations into pre-war intelligence, and Republicans like myself pushing back to help their 'sudden amnesia”, the growing stories of Able Danger and even China Gate, are beginning to make news.

The three main theories about why Able Danger hasn't gotten out of the "blog stage", are 1) To hide Clinton era responsibility for stopping the 9/11 attacks, and/or 2) To hide the truth behind China-Gate, or 3) The facts show that there in fact was a direct link between Iraq and 9/11.

Taking either one you can see why the Clinton worshipping MSM for the most part hasn't touched the story. Of the later point, Democrats, the MSM and even some of our investigations state that there was no 'direct' link between Iraq and 9/11. Say otherwise and the MSM will slice and di…

Able Danger - Pulling Back the Covers of the real Clinton Legacy

First, let's dispense with the bull crap. The meeting between Mohammed Atta and Iraqi Intelligence officer Al-Ani, on April 8th, 2001 happened.

Yet, just don't mention it to the MSM, becaue since May of 2002, the MSM declared an all out assault on the story. A meeting incidently, that the Czech government has to this date stood by.

Let's review a little history:

October 13, 2001: Story of the meeting is leaked from somewhere in the Czech foreign service.

yet.....

October 20, 2001: Ny Times, John Tagliabue writes a story citing other Czech officials said the meeting never took place.

so.....

October 26, 2001: Czech Minister of the Interior, Stanislav Gross has a press conference not only confirming the orginal report but giving further details of Atta's other trip to Prague in June 2000.

then.....

October 27, 2001: The NY Times "recants" the October 20th denial.

The story continues it's oddessy of 'back and forth' until May 1st, 2002, when Walter P…
