Clinton Responsible For Katrina Damage?

The truth sometimes takes years to come out, but the verdict (literally) is in on the Katrina disaster and one of those convicted was the US Army Corps of Engineers: The failure of the Corps to recognize the destruction that the MRGO had caused and the potential hazard that it created is clearly negligent on […]

Gustav Disappoints Blow Hard Democrats As It Dissipates Before Land Fall

I was really good on my prediction of how bad Katrina would be before it hit. From years of looking at weather patterns and such from missions at NASA I could see from the breadth of the storm alone it would be something for the history books: This is going to be one of those […]

Another Example Of Global Warming Ignorance

The saying goes “blame it on the weather”. After Katrina hit the US the man-made global warming zealots all said global warming is causing increased hurricane activity. Since Katrina the US has seen very few hurricanes (and BTW – the temperature of Earth has been roughly steady and below the latest peak in 1999). Conveniently, […]

In The Wake Of Katrina, GOP Success

The liberal media and their democrat masters in Congress make a good play on TV and in the newstands, but Americans – much more sophisticated and intelligent than their purchasing habits may initially appear – are not buying the liberal fiction. Katrina is the best indication of this happening. It is clear why, but let […]

Must See Katrina Post

Paul at Wizbang has damning and clear evidence that one of the failed levies was not overtopped, as the media has claimed, but simply failed. It failed under conditions where the water was nowhere near the top of the levies. It failed because the levee was of a flawed design. This is not Bush’s fault, […]

Remembering Katrina

Things to remember about Katrina: (1) Bush pleaded and begged Nagin and Blanco for days to evacuate New Orleans, which they did too late to meet the requirements established in the New Orleans disaster plan. (2) Nagin and Blanco tossed out their hurricane/flood disaster plan that they submitted and coordinated with FEAM, throwing the entire […]

NO Levees Failed Due To Natural Causes

A little known fact is that the tip of Louisiana is sinking into the Gulf of Mexico. Has been for decades if not longer. Some if it has been accelerated by development – much of it attributed to the dikes erected all along the Mississippi River to control flooding. When we stopped the flooding of […]

This Is Class

This is the Blogosphere at its best – a heart felt mea culpa on Michael Brown. I take pride in being one of the few bloggers who stayed by Brown and did not succumb to the mob frenzy.  Reading my post from September 27th I realized how angry I was at people for jumping to […]

Blanco’s Buffoonery

Just go read the whole sad story at Rhymes with Right. I guess Governor Blanco needed to soother her frayed nerves, and decided to do some redecorating to take her mind off her problems.

While New Orleans Burned, Blanco Fiddled

Blanco plotted with the Senate Democrats to win partisan points. My posts on Katrina have consistently pointed out that Governor Blanco, who is the lead in emergency response and relief efforts for Louisiana, was a unmitigated disaster. She and Mayor Nagin delayed evacuation prior to Katrina’s landfall, and then delayed evacuation and the infusion of […]
