The government say's they're going to blow them to protect Cairo Illinois's 3000 residents BUT they will be flooding some of the richest farmland in the nation and flood numerous counties with over 75,000 people.

They're saying it will prevent a larger disaster BUT that doesn't make any sense..

Could this be a giant land grab by the global elites to get their hands on some of the richest farmland in the world. You know food is going to be the United States biggest commodity when all of this settles down...these lands will be worth a fortune.

Create a disaster...buy the 'ruined' land dirt cheap then use it.....

Most of these farmers will lose everything because the flood insurance won't cover 'manmade'
flooding....

This will send massive amounts of water over several counties destroying everything in it's path. The countdown has begun..I just hope the rest of the nation won't be asleep when this criminal act takes place.....

Yep...I don't think I'll flood but this thing is ridiculous. They should leave it alone Cairo isn't going to be helped that much but it will destroy alot of farmers and flood alot of people by over running the drainage system that was carved out when they drained the swamp. This breach is supposed to be 2 miles wide...

We'll see...Missouri tried a lawsuit to stop it but old Rush Limbaughs relative ruled against it in the court house named after that family of parasites.

Well something is up...it's flooded before and nobody blew a two mile hole in a flooding river levee.

We went through the 1993 floods and nobody suggested this crazy stuff and that flood took out many Illinois and Missouri communities. As a matter of fact they moved the whole town of commerce Missouri back then instead of blowing up any levee's

Oh we have..this thing is effecting many communities and rural families. It just seems like it's only getting out in our area...no national coverage of the protest or the lawsuit to stop it. I think it's been in a little headline on the Drudge Report...that's it...

The local media is on it...it's a major thing here...it's just not anywhere else...


Well hopefully Cairo will stay under 61 ft....if it hits that or goes over then they say they're going to blow it...

The thing is though it looks like it's going to hit that and there's nothing we can do about it because the Federal court has already ruled....so I guess everyone needs to keep sandbagging and hope for the best.

The best info is from the Southeastmissourian...a newspaper out of Cape Girardeau...

Too late to do anything now...since the court ruling said they can blow up the levee.

Here's a link to the local topix discussion going on about this...

Mandatory evacuation in Mississippi County; National Guard going door-to-door in spillway
Friday, April 29, 2011 ~ Updated 1:50 PM
By M.D. Kittle ~ Southeast Missourian
http://www.semissourian.com/story/1723161.html

Mississippi County Sheriff Keith Moore has asked the Missouri Army National Guard to activate a mandatory evacuation for residents of the spillway beneath the Birds Point New Madrid levee, according to a spokeswoman for the Mississippi County Sheriff's Department.

"They are going door to door to each residence in the spillway. Everybody needs to be out," said Mississippi County deputy Janice McCameron. "We need to get them out of there for their own protection."

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the sheriff's department confirm the evacuation has nothing to do with the corps' plan to detonate the levee should the river gauge at Cairo rise to 61 feet.

As of this hour, the corps' plan to breach the Birds Point levee remains on hold, according to corps spokesman Jim Pogue.

I think I've got an idea for all this.

...  we are able to modify weather..  correct?
...  TPTB want to build a huge road/rail corridore through the heart of the USA right?

What better way to take over these lands by creating 'natural' disasters to displace people in places they want to use for this corridor?

Just a thought.

Is It Strange That FEMA Wants to Buy 140 Million Packaged Meals with a Shelf Life Only 36 Months for a Specific Disaster Scenario?

I’m sure that there are plenty of reasons why this isn’t weird, but I’ll just make a note of it in case Coincidence strikes.

Via: Federal Business Opportunities:

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) procures and stores pre-packaged commercial meals to support readiness capability for immediate distribution to disaster survivors routinely. The purpose of this Request for Information is to identify sources of supply for meals in support of disaster relief efforts based on a catastrophic disaster event within the New Madrid Fault System for a survivor population of 7M to be utilized for the sustainment of life during a 10-day period of operations.

Conspiracy Theory
In the 1990s, Canadian conspiracy theorists believed the "GRAND Canal" was part of a conspiracy to end Canadian sovereignty and force it into a union with the USA and Mexico. Conspiracy theorists believed forces interested in North American union would agitate for a Quebec separation, which would then touch off a Canadian civil war and plunge the Canadian economy into a depression. Impoverished Canadians would then look to the canal project and North American union to revitalize the Canadian economy. Much of the scenario was lifted from Lansing Lamont's 1994 book Breakup: The Coming End of Canada and the Stakes for America.


Allegedly masterminding this conspiracy was Simon Reisman, ostensibly a Freemason.

Reisman was instrumental in GATT, the Autopact and NAFTA.

http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php?topic=117072.msg761139#msg761139

Quote
The Great Recycling and Northern Development (GRAND) Canal of North America or GCNA is a water management proposal designed by Newfoundland engineer Thomas Kierans to alleviate North American freshwater shortage problems (see Water politics). The GCNA, which relies upon water management technologies used in the Zuider Zee and California Aqueduct, has been promoted by Kierans since 1959.

This plan arose as water quality issues threatened the Great Lakes and other vital areas in Canada and the United States [1]. Kierans proposes that to avoid a water crisis from future droughts in Canada and the United States, in addition to water conservation, acceptable new fresh water sources must be found.

The premise of the GCNA is that fresh water run-off from natural precipitation be collected in James Bay by means of a series of outflow-only, sea level dikes-constructed across the northern end of James Bay. This would capture the fresh water before it mixes with the salty water of Hudson Bay. In the second phase of the GRAND Canal proposal a percentage of the captured fresh water run-off would be transferred by a series of canals and pumping stations south to the Great Lakes where it would be available to be transferred to water deficit areas of Canada and the United States. Precipitation run-off from the U.S. and Canada averages about 160,000 m3 per second[citation needed], or the flow of 28 Niagara Rivers. Sixty percent occurs in Canada, which has only 10% of both nations’ total population. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Recycling_and_Northern_Development_Canal

It'll probably be shown on KFVS in Cape Girardeau or WPSD out of Paducah Kentucky....

Now the Humvee's and Mobile command center I can't show because all I have is a go phone with no camera..*LOL* I knew I shouldn't have dropped my cell plan..I had a camera phone and everything with that...

Maybe somebody who lives around here could drive by the Sikeston airport and snap a picture of the command center...as for the humvees' I'm sure those will be shown on TV...

Strange development..the Governor is holding a emergency roundtable discussion.

http://www.semissourian.com/story/1723171.html

All of this state is opposing the Federal Governments plan to blow up this levee. While basically the Eastern side of the River is for it. I'm getting a feeling this might be the beginning of something bigger politically.

It's starting to sound like Missouri just might oppose this in a more physical manner than just going through the court system. It's getting kind of funny around here over this thing...

It's just kind of like their preparing for something big...they've appealed the federal decision and I'm thinking what they'll do if they try to blow the levee before that appeal is heard..for those of you who don't know this is one of the biggest lifeblood for this state and especially this region to lose this land would put Missouri into super poverty...it's REALLY important...

Illinois..Kentucky and Tennessee have filed against MO in the lawsuit..it's State against State against Federal government...like I said it just has a strange feel to it...

Private Sector Participant Guide
National Level Exercise 2011 Version 1.0

http://getthetruthout.freeforums.org/fema-nle-drill-may-16-19-2011-t1521-10.html
<snip>

NLE 11 Timeline
NLE 11 uses a building block approach to exercise design. Accordingly, there are numerous related activities leading up to and beyond the Functional Exercise (FE) being held May 16–20, 2011. The NLE 11 Exercise calendar is continuously updated based on Exercise planning and development outcomes. Currently the NLE 11 key dates are as follows:

 Final Planning Conference; April 6–7, 2011
This meeting serves as the final review for all exercise planning initiatives to ensure that exercise design has been thoroughly coordinated across all participating entities (both Government and Private Sector together).

 National Tabletop Exercise (TTX); April 13, 2011 This National TTX is designed to discuss critical issues that will then be more thoroughly
tested during the Functional Exercise  Great Shakeout; April 28, 2011
The Great Central U.S. Shakeout in April 2011 will involve more than 1 million people through a broad-based outreach program, partnership with the media, and public advocacy by hundreds of partners. This event is being organized by CUSEC and our Member States: Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee. The Shakeout will be centered around a simultaneous drop, cover, and hold drill that will be held at 10:15 AM CDT on April 28, 2011. The drill is designed to increase awareness and be a simple thing that can be done easily by many people. For more details and to learn how you and/or your organization can participate, go to www.cusec.org.

 Functional Exercise; May 16–20, 2011
The week-long capstone event in the National Level Exercise in which all participating Federal, State, Tribal and Private Sector entities interact to test the eight overarching Exercise Objectives defined during the planning process for NLE 11 at all levels of government (Federal, State and Local).

 National Recovery Seminar; TBD June, 2011
The National Recovery Seminar will consist of plenary and panel discussions. The seminar will open with welcome and keynote remarks, to include an overview of the National Disaster Recovery Framework (NDRF). Following the opening plenary session, a panel discussion will be offered to discuss lessons learned during the aftermath of and recovery from previous earthquakes and other disasters.

 National Recovery Tabletop Exercise; September 20–22, 2011
The recovery capstone event, the NLE 11 National Recovery Tabletop exercise, will be the first opportunity to explore the application of the draft NDRF using a large-scale, multi-State catastrophic disaster. The scenario will be derived from outcomes from the NLE 11 Functional Exercise.

Note these dates are subject to change. To learn more about these events contact FEMA’s National Exercise Division at NEP@dhs.gov.

Importance of NLE 11 Reaffirmed After Japanese Earthquake
NLE 2011
Preparedness Matters
April 2011

http://asdwasecurity.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/nle-prepredness-matters_april-2011.pdf

Successful disaster preparedness is directly related to the quality of planning, training provided, and the testing that occurs before a disaster strikes. The National Level Exercise 2011 (NLE 11), which will simulate a disastrous earthquake in the New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ), is an opportunity for the private sector and multiple government jurisdictions to evaluate response and recovery capabilities for a catastrophic event. Located in the center of the United States, NMSZ encompasses parts of an eight-state region including Alabama, Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, and Tennessee. Japan has been widely recognized as having the most robust disaster planning of any country in the world, particularly when it comes to earthquakes. In 2010, about 670,000 residents participated in preparedness drills as part of Japan’s Disaster Preparedness Day; held annually since the damaging earthquake of 1923, when tremors measuring 7.9 left Tokyo and its suburbs in ruins and killed 140,000 people, according to the Yomiuri Shimbun, a Japanese newspaper.

Time magazine describes just how devoted Japanese leadership and the general public are to disaster preparedness in an online article, How Japan Became a Leader in Disaster Preparation. The general public, including school-aged children, participate in annual mandatory evacuation drills. Japanese leadership has emphasized the importance of mutual aid. Japan’s Prime Minister, Naoto Kan, has stated, “I would like to ensure that the government will prepare itself for disaster, together with the people, so that it can confidently say that ‘providing is preventing.’ ” Hundreds of earthquake and tsunami shelters have also been built along the east coast of Japan to protect its people. CBS News describes Japan’s Disaster Preparedness Day as a collaborative endeavor, including the military, local police, firefighters, and the United States Navy; that incorporates mandatory evacuation drills, early warning and communication system testing, private sector collaboration, and emergency response activities. Despite these preparedness drills, the 9.0 magnitude quake that hit northern Japan on March 11, 2011, resulted in widespread destruction and loss of life. As of April 4, the Japanese government reported an estimated 135,000 buildings were destroyed or damaged, the number of deaths is 12,087, the number of the injured is 2,876, and the number of missing is 15,552. The number of those evacuated is approximately 206,400. CNN has reported that approximately 6 million households in Japan (more than 10 percent) were without electricity. Multiple media outlets have stated that homes were washed away after a dam failure in Fukushima Prefecture, located on the island of Honshu. Fukushima Prefecture borders the hard-hit Miyagi Prefecture to the South and is also home to the damaged nuclear reactor. The reactor has now leaked radioactive material into the surrounding atmosphere, and radioactive water has filled nearby tunnels, which has spilled into the Pacific Ocean. The Japanese government estimates recovery costs could reach as much as $310 billion.

Japan’s experience is an important lesson for the United States because the U.S. Department of Homeland Security Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has warned that an earthquake in NMSZ could result in “the highest economic losses due to a natural disaster in the United States.” FEMA further estimates “widespread and catastrophic” destruction could occur across the eight states that make up the NMSZ. A 7.7 magnitude quake or greater would cause damage to tens of thousands of structures affecting critical infrastructure. According to a FEMA report, Impact of Earthquakes in Central USA, nearly 715,000 could be damaged, 2.6 million households could lose electric power, and casualties could climb to almost 86,000 with 3,500 fatalities. The direct economic losses are predicted to be a staggering $300 billion across the eight-state region.

To prepare for a national catastrophic event of this magnitude, the U.S. government has several overarching objectives for NLE 2011. The exercise is meant to test the ability of the United States to:
◆ Offer mass care services (shelter and food) for the affected general populations.
◆ Expand healthcare resources to provide medical personnel and logistics.
◆ Implement recovery processes after a catastrophic earthquake, including establishing recovery priorities, assessing the economic impact, and coordinating and implementing recovery and relief plans.
◆ Maintain continuous information sharing for the duration of the response operation.
◆ Implement an effective national media strategy in response to a catastrophic earthquake.
◆ Ensure that affected populations are safely sheltered-in-place and/or evacuated to a safe refuge area, and are effectively and safely returned following the event.

The disaster in Japan serves as a harsh reminder of the importance of disaster planning and preparedness. In The Japan Earthquake & Tsunami and What They Mean for the U.S., a document prepared for FEMA after Japan’s recent earthquake, experts acknowledged that the earthquake damage in Japan was relatively contained in part because the epicenter of the quake was 62 miles from shore, but mostly because Japanese building codes are so restrictive. Although older wood residential buildings suffered the most structural damage resulting in collapse, many of the buildings in Japan remained intact. According to the same FEMA report, nonstructural damage has caused greater dollar losses than actual structural damage. The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) estimates there is a 25 to 40 percent chance, in a 50-year time span, of a magnitude 6.0 or greater earthquake in the NMSZ. Private sector organizations falling within the NMSZ in the United States do not have the earthquake design standards that are as strict as those in Japan, which makes coordinated preparedness testing even more important. NLE 11 provides a perfect means for the private sector to test disaster recovery and business continuity plans, in addition to providing subject matter expertise in a coordinated response effort with multiple government jurisdictions.

This is for future use.

--------------------

An attempt to help the city with river control began with the forming of The Cairo City and Canal Company. [Strange name, also who formed that strangely-named company] It not only controlled the efforts of community development [implies some outside organization controls the city?] but also had authority over every phase of public life in the community. [WTF? :o] Unfortunately it failed, chiefly because of a series of financial disasters. [LOL] Wright and Company of London, which loaned $1 million, went bankrupt. Other financial backers lost confidence in the company, creating a serious financial crisis. Large expenditures were necessary. The Illinois Central Railroad failed to complete any substantial part of the railway system, which would have led to shipment on land of port deliveries. Lastly, the City and Canal Company plan to control Cairo failed to bring people into the decision-making processes. [The city and "the company" were/are in cahoots?]

Is this on the New Madrid fault? If so, couldn't that blast cause a problem with the fault?

Levee Breach Moves One Step Closer
By MALCOLM GAY [LOL!]
Published: April 30, 2011
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/05/01/us/01flood.html

CAIRO, Ill. — Chugging north along the Mississippi River, twin barges laden with more than 250 tons of explosive material were ordered to dock at a final staging area on Saturday in an apparent sign that the Army Corps of Engineers was making further preparations to breach a nearby levee, inundating roughly 130,000 acres of Missouri farmland to relieve pressure on the groaning levee system upstream.

I think I've got an idea for all this.

...  we are able to modify weather..  correct?
...  TPTB want to build a huge road/rail corridore through the heart of the USA right?

What better way to take over these lands by creating 'natural' disasters to displace people in places they want to use for this corridor?

Your idea sure does make me wonder, as well as Freeski's map! Then add on Agenda 21 and Rewilding Project, and you have motive!

Any explosive experts in the house? 250 tons sounds like a lot!

Way too much explosive... remember it was stated that 1000 pounds of ANFO blew the Alfred P. Murrah building in OKC in half, from 50 feet outside the building....

they will be using C-4 on the levee if they have 2 brain cells firing, and it would take less than 200 pounds of the stuff to do the job... 250 tons of high explosive would be overkill by 3000 times...

"FUCQUE!" New Madrid shake and bake ala nuke meltdown... I hate these Bastards.
