David Icke on Katrina, New Orleans, FEMA, & Genocide
September 11, 2005


Hello all...

Thousands of years ago the Roman philosopher Seneca observed that: `He has committed the crime who profits by it.' Or, as I have said in my books, `He who benefits from a crime is the one most likely to have committed it.' This is not always the case, but as a theme it is right on. Now, clearly, a crime of breathtaking magnitude has been committed in New Orleans and those southern states struck by Hurricane Katrina, a great storm that transformed from a category 1 to category 5 as it headed for land fall on the Louisiana coast. I detailed the wealth of weather control technology available to the Elite in the last newsletter and even when the hurricane failed to destroy New Orleans by itself the levees conveniently broke and flooded the city to virtual oblivion. A famous city from the `developed', `civilised', world was turned within hours into a nightmare of flooded, polluted, disease-ridden streets, dead people in their thousands (far more than they will officially admit to), mob rule, rape, and he-with-the-muscle-takes-the-food.

It is a sobering reminder of just how tenuous our `civilisation' really is and how staggeringly quickly it can descend into the animalistic demands of survival. I have written in my books of a great civilisation in the ancient world with advanced knowledge of science and esoteric law that built vast cities. It was a society on a global scale at one point. People say that if such a place existed we would find evidence of it, so it can't be true.

But wait. Some of its calling cards are still with us in the form of extraordinary edifices of stone around the world in places like Peru, Egypt, and elsewhere. The rest of it has disappeared, yes, but why would it not have done so given the recent experience of New Orleans? Our `modern' society is considered `advanced' technologically, if certainly not spiritually, but this `great society' that we hear praised by the day is in fact hanging by three tiny threads: oil,
electricity and clean water. Take clean water away and we're all dead within a short time through dehydration or disease; take away electricity and there is no light or warmth. Take away oil and there is no transport except on foot, bicycle or animal-drawn cart and there would be no animals without uncontaminated water. Together they would also mean no more food, except that which can be produced locally using traditional methods and crops, now disappearing under the onslaught of genetically-modified varieties demanding chemicals that would not be available when catastrophe struck.

Within hours of New Orleans being without drinking water, oil or electricity `western civilisation' was history. For it had lost the pillars, threads in truth, upon which it depends. Perhaps we can see more clearly from this experience how an ancient global society struck by geological catastrophes and some massive wall of water - the `Great Flood' - would have been obliterated. What would be left of New Orleans a few thousand years from now if it is was just abandoned to the elements?


Anyway, back to the theme: He who most benefits from a crime is the one most likely to have committed it. My own feeling having read the reports all week is that Hurricane Katrina was whipped up into the incredible storm it became using the weather control technology detailed in last week's newsletter and that it was steered to its target, New Orleans. When, as was first reported, the storm gave the city a massive battering, but it survived, the levees were broken to do the rest. Apart from those who understand the Illuminati techniques, who was going to suspect foul play with the levees when the hurricane was a ready-made villain?

This gave them so many gifts in their Orwellian agenda for global control. Firstly, the main victims were the poor, mostly poor blacks who could not evacuate. Black people to the Illuminati bloodlines are little more than vermin - `useless eaters' as they call the masses - and they want to depopulate them on a massive scale. This is the real reason for the implanted AIDS epidemic in Africa which is killing millions of black people across that continent, not least in South Africa, and threatens a depopulation of staggering proportions in the years ahead.

Many will say that the idea of a genocide of black people is far fetched, but here is the `race-purity' agenda in the Illuminati's own words. In September 2000 the Illuminati's neocon front, The Project for the New American Century, set out a blueprint for the incoming Bush administration to follow. The people behind the report, including Cheney, Rumsfeld, Wolfowitz, and so on, became the controlling cabal behind boy Bush and they have been following their report to the letter - including the invasion of Iraq. And in that same report they say the U.S. should consider the `use of biological weapons and that "new" methods of attack - electronic, `non-lethal', biological - will be more widely available ... combat likely will take place in new dimensions, in space, cyberspace, and perhaps the world of microbes... advanced forms of biological warfare that can `target' specific genotypes may transform biological warfare from the realm of terror to a politically useful tool'.

Note the language: "specific genotypes" - the biological targeting of specific races and black people are the main, though not the only, target. That is what we are dealing with here within this bigger picture of the Orwellian fascist state - cold, calculated genocide. For this to happen in the you have to demonise black people. This is always the methodology of the sick minds who target races for destruction. They are using the `war on terrorism' to turn other races
against the Arab peoples, just as they used propaganda to turn Germans against Jews. Now we are seeing the same with blacks in America - they're portrayed as the bad guys while the whites in the same circumstances are the victims. Here are two news reports to give you a blatant example of what I mean. Blacks 'loot' food while whites 'find' it.

The key weapon of the tyrant is always 'divide and rule' of the people and it is so important that neither whites turn against blacks or the other way round. Let us not kid ourselves that there are not black racists as there are white and both need to understand that they are being encouraged by the same force - the one that wants the races in conflict to divide and rule. The following is as relevant today as when it was first spoken. It always will be:

`In Germany, first they came for the communists and I did not speak out because I was not a communist.

Then they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Catholics and I did not speak out because I was a Protestant.

Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.'

--- Pastor Martin Niemoller (1892-1984) ---

We need to speak out for ALL victims of injustice, no matter what their creed, colour, or income bracket. If we protect justice for all to enjoy then it will be there when we need it, too. Otherwise the sequence of picking us off group by group will leave us in the same situation as Niemoller. The Muslims, blacks, poor whites, middle classes, on and on they intend to go, but it can be stopped if we, no matter what our colour, creed, belief or background, stand up for
justice for ALL. We don't have to like people or agree with them to stand up for their freedom. Their freedom is our freedom, lest we forget, or, as Noam Chomsky put it: `If we don't believe in freedom of _expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all.'

The chaos that has followed Katrina has been a blueprint for the marshall law and military state that the Illuminati wish to impose in the wake of further engineered `terror' and weather/geological events. As I have been saying for years, they use the technique of first creating the chaos and then offering the `order' out of the chaos. This `order' means reshaping society in their Orwellian image. The Illuminati are getting desperate because they know that vast numbers of people continue to wake up and see what they couldn't see before and they are seeking to impose their Orwellian global state as fast as possible to suppress the awakening with control, surveillence and, most importantly to them, human microchipping. This means that they are planning to throw everything they can at the human mind and emotions in terror attacks and `natural' disasters. We must stay strong and not succumb to such pressure to submit.

Here is some background to what is really going behind the FEMA `rescue effort'. Firstly a good summary of what the Illuminati want to create in terms of a military-controlled society and how New Orleans has been a blueprint in so many ways:

New World New Orleans: Microcosm for the "New America"

'This is the nightmare situation of a New World Order takeover in America. It is what we have been warning the world about for years. It is no longer some distant possibility on the horizon that our children may have to endure and fight against, it is here, it is now. New Orleans is a testing ground for this exact scenario, all this is going on there now. We are witnessing in New Orleans, the construction of a microcosm for a "New America" and a New World Order.'

This is an account of a personal experience of the FEMA operation. It's quite long, but a must read if you want to know what is really going on behind the cover story of 'helping the needy'.


'I'm extremely depressed to report that things seem to only be getting sadder concerning the people so devastatingly affected by Katrina last week. Two car loads of us headed over to Falls Creek, a youth camp for Southern Baptist churches in Oklahoma that agreed to have its facilities used to house Louisiana refugees. I'm afraid the camp is not going to be used as the kind people of the churches who own the cabins believe it was going to be used. Jesse Jackson was right when he said "refugees" was not the appropriate word for the poor souls dislocated due to Katrina. But he was wrong about why it is not appropriate. It's not appropriate because they are detainees, not refugees.'

I am not an advocate of guns, never owned one and never want to. But confiscating guns owned by the public while allowing those representing the state to have as many as they want has long been part of the takeover agenda. The Nazis introduced gun laws before they imposed their dictatorship.

New Orleans Begins Confiscating Firearms as Water Recedes

'Waters were receding across this flood-beaten city today as police officers began confiscating weapons, including legally registered firearms, from civilians in preparation for a mass forced evacuation of the residents still living here.

No civilians in New Orleans will be allowed to carry pistols, shotguns or other firearms, said P. Edwin Compass III, the superintendent of police. "Only law enforcement are allowed to have weapons," he said.

But that order apparently does not apply to hundreds of security guards hired by businesses and some wealthy individuals to protect property. The guards, employees of private security companies like Blackwater, openly carry M-16's and other assault rifles. Mr. Compass said that he was aware of the private guards, but that the police had no plans to make them give up their weapons.'

The evidence is now overwhelming that far from leading the rescue in the southern states FEMA systematically prevented help getting through.

You're a firefighter okay? You don't go to New Orleans to rescue people, you take a sexual harrassment course...

'He said we are here to do WHAT...??'

'Not long after some 1,000 firefighters sat down for eight hours of training, the whispering began: "What are we doing here?"

As New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin pleaded on national television for firefighters - his own are exhausted after working around the clock for a week - a battalion of highly trained men and women sat idle Sunday in a muggy Sheraton Hotel conference room in Atlanta. Many of the firefighters, assembled from Utah and throughout the United States by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, thought they were going to be deployed as emergency workers.

Instead, they have learned they are going to be community-relations officers for FEMA, shuffled throughout the Gulf Coast region to disseminate fliers and a phone number: 1-800-621-FEMA.'

FEMA's Blocking Relief Efforts - An Amazing List

FEMA won't accept Amtrak's help in evacuations; FEMA turns away experienced firefighters; FEMA turns back Wal-Mart supply trucks; FEMA prevents Coast Guard from delivering diesel fuel; FEMA won't let Red Cross deliver food; FEMA bars morticians from entering New Orleans; FEMA blocks 500-boat citizen flotilla from delivering aid; FEMA fails to utilize Navy ship with 600-bed hospital on board; FEMA to Chicago: Send just one truck; FEMA turns away generators; FEMA: "First Responders Urged Not To Respond."


Another aspect to the targeting of New Orleans and the forced evacuations is that the Illuminati want to take over the city for their own profit. The `rebuilding' of New Orleans will be the building of a Las Vegas of the south with ten of billions of tax dollars poured in as `relief aid' for Illuminati transnationals like Halliburton and others to rebuild the city in the Illuminati image. Where once poor people lived, black balls will spin to the sound of cash registers. Here is an article about these plans, followed by what someone apparently overheared at an dinner for the elite. Both certainly fit the picture:


'Oil machinery and other service and equipment faker, Halliburton, has been promised the contract to someday, perhaps not soon, rebuild New Orleans. Vice President Richard Cheney, a top-level criminal, was the CEO of the firm and still receives many millions of dollars per year in delayed "compensation" from them while he stonewalls important White House oil dirty business.

The plan for treachery is simple. Residents of New Orleans fled for their life. They obviously did not take along in a plastic bag the deed to their property. So now out-of-town and out-of-work, they do not have the funds to pay their property tax nor do they have their property identification code and number. Sixty six per cent of the population of New Orleans have been blacks, many impoverished, together with a sizeable number of poor whites.

So it will be simple for land swindlers like Halliburton and their gang of pirates to grab lots of land from the descendants of slaves or white indentured servants, bull-doze away the hurricane-wrecked houses, and build hotels and other structures to accompany a someday to be newly-enlarged whorehouse district in New Orleans.'


'I would like to add something to the bubbling pot that might cast a light on the disgusting official breakdown of rescue and support. This afternoon, I was having lunch at the Cosmos Club out on Massachusetts Avenue. A good friend is a member of the posh club (that once was the elegant town home of Sumner Welles), and while at lunch, I was privy to a very vocal conversation at one of the big round center tables in the club dining room.

One man was giving an overview of the situation to a group of his friends. The speaker was an undersecretary of an important department, well -liked by Bush and often in the White House to consult. The others ranged from an academic economist whose writings can be seen in a right wing paper and a number of Washington-based businessmen, all of whom are active and heavy contributors to the Bush White House.

The loud one had obviously had a few drinks at the bar and this is probably why he was not more discreet. The gist of his comments was horrible to contemplate and it sounded like a top Nazi discussing Jews.

It is well known here that the Bush family and many of the top advisers at the White House are racists but instead of detesting Jews, in this case, they all detest blacks. Their rationale, aside from their view of racial superiority, is that blacks are all "welfare queens, unwed mothers and drug dealers." It was the very firmly stated view of the host that it was better for everyone that New Orleans was under water for the time being.

In that way, we were told (and I was not the only person in the dining room who heard all this), this served to "chase out the niggers" and permit Bush-supporting businessmen from buying up the soon-to-be condemned sodden houses for five cents on the dollar from friendly insurance companies (which one of them was a CEO of) and put up an enlarged and very profitable combination of industrial park and office building section. The money for this would, naturally, come from government grants which a terrified Congress (Mid Term elections are coming) had just voted for and the contracts to demolish the wrecked low-income slums would go, as a no-bid contract, to another stellar Bush supporter.

As for the refugees, our table of proto-fascists all commented on the fact that most of them were on welfare and probably all voted Democratic so they could all be shipped to California or Chicago at the public expense and allowed to occupy less valuable public housing there.

This conversation went on in a similar vein for some time and it was difficult for both myself and my host to refrain from making nasty comments or, for that matter, to enjoy our meal. These people are greedy and purely evil and I am positive from the overall conversations that Bush is conversant with this attitude and has no intentions of interfering with it.'


Where there's a pig trough you'll always find Halliburton...

Former FEMA head and now Halliburton lobbyist visits Louisiana to secure deals

(Dick Cheney, former Halliburton CEO, will give him all the support he needs)

'The former head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Joseph Allbaugh, now a lobbyist for Halliburton, is in Lousiana helping his clients obtain disaster relief contracts, the Washington Post reported today. Even Republicans on Capitol Hill are feeling a bit disgusted. "I think there are some laws that have to be changed, especially [when contracting] in emergency situations and the like," said Rep. Tom Davis (R-VA), chairman of the House Committee on Government Reform,

The creation of the Homeland Security Department has created another big industry for lobbyists: disaster relief. The Post reported there are roughly 240 businesses and lobbyists seeking to influence contracting and policies related to disaster relief.'

The key to this disaster, in New Orleans anyway, was the levees breaking. Who benefits? These guys do...

Why did the levees break?

'These developers will turn New Orleans into the hottest real estate project in the US, using government grants. New Orleans, and its surrounding area, will turn into another Las Vegas, but with Old World charm. You have the Russian mob represented by the Fainbergs vs the American group run out of Miami by Alvin Malnik. The Mob, run by the likes of Alvin Malnik, nee (Malinkski) will have a field day remaking New Orleans into the next Las Vegas.

When you factor in the magnitude of the incompetence, it really isn't out of the realm of possibility [that the levees were sabotaged]. All the levees required were simple fixes. The gross negligence of the rescue effort, and it's five day delay, will surely prevent the return of most of the blacks. No doubt there will be some tenement housing built in surrounding areas, for blacks to resettle in, and the real estate developers will offer them chump change for their New Orleans' property.'

'The Unexplained Crack in Several Feet of Concrete'

'Dr. Shea Penland of the Pontchartrain Institute was surprised because the break was "along a section that was just upgraded. It did not have an earthen levee, it had a vertical concrete wall several feet thick."'

There are many reasons why it took long for the rescue effort to begin in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. First they WANTED the chaos, the violence and the suffering because it suited their agenda and this is why the speeches and behaviour of President Bush had `don't give shit' written all over them. It was so blatant that even some of his brain-dead supporters could see that something didn't add up. The level of contempt that Bush and his minders have for the people of can be seen yet again in how they spent time and money during a supposed rescue effort to set up a photo opportunity to make him look good (quite a challenge).

Bush faked levee repair for photo op yesterday

'Flying over this critical spot again this morning, less than 24 hours later, it became apparent that yesterday we witnessed a hastily prepared stage set for a Presidential photo opportunity; and the desperately needed resources we saw were this morning reduced to a single, lonely piece of equipment.'

'Bye, y'all, I'm thinking of ya...!

Now, can we shut these goddam windows and get a game on ... I'm sick of these people complainin'.'

Another talking point this week on the Katrina issue has been the work of the Red Cross. This is not to cast doubt on the dedicated people in the field who do some wonderful work in the most horrendous circumstances. It is more the way the organisation is controlled and used for specific Illuminati ends. I have been surprised over the years how often the Red Cross and its manipulation has come up in my research and here is a story I ran on the website this week:

Red Cross Frauds, Katrina & Other Disaster Scams

Red Cross - symbol of the Knights Templar

'During the September 11 disaster, the Red Cross collected untold millions of dollars which have never been accounted for -- $564 million in donations under the auspices of the Liberty Fund. Months later, the Red Cross had distributed only $154 million to the victims of 9/11. The Red Cross said the rest would be used to "fight the war on terror."

When asked "where did the money go?" Dr. Bernadine Healy, the president of Red Cross said, "The Liberty Fund is a war fund. It has evolved into a war fund."

In 1989, after the San Francisco earthquake, the Red Cross passed on
only $10 million of the $50 million that had been raised.'''






The questions about Oklahoma and 9/11 won't go away simply because it is so obvious to anyone with a smear of intelligence that the government is lying on both counts. Here a bacteriologist and government insider claims that Oklahoma City and 9/11 were both 'Inside Jobs' - as they were.

'"He looked at me with this frightened look and finally came clean," recalls Dr. Deagle about the routine check-up that turned into a confession about government complicity in the bombing. "He told me they removed two softball size micro-chip nukes as well as removing C-4 pineapples and many C-4 placer charges systematically put throughout the building.

"He said he had to tell somebody but feared he would be killed if this ever leaked out. He then went on to say that special FBI units placed the nuke charges in the building to bring it down as a plan to one day bring about martial law."'

'Then in March of 2001 at a casual lunch during an infectious disease conference in Denver, a high-ranking FBI official, who perhaps had too much wine at lunch, told Dr. Deagle months in advance about the scenario involving what occurred on 9/11.

"When 9/11 happened, I knew right away it was a government insider as I thought about what the head of bio-terrorism told me March," said Dr. Deagle. "And, now years later, many of my military contacts have confirmed the Twin Towers were brought down by a controlled demolition with bombs being placed in the basements of both towers."'





I have been going on for some 15 years now about the legalised fraud in which banks are allowed to create `money' out of nothing and charge interest on it. The Illuminati bloodlines have been using this `credit' scam for centuries - it was one way the Knights Templar became so wealthy - and now there is an effort through the courts of Canada to expose this biggest fraud of all.


'Hearings are set for September 12 and 13 at the Supreme Court in Vancouver. The statement of claim alleges among other things, creation of money out of nothing, fraudulent misrepresentation, money laundering, fraud, charging of criminal interest rates and breach of contract. A copy of the Statement of Claim is available for download through

"This without a doubt will be a precedent setting case that is sure to change the face of the banking system in Canada forever. Without even taking into consideration the potential damages, the sheer numbers of people alone who potentially can participate in this action, will in my estimation make this case the largest lawsuit ever filed for Class Certification in this nation", stated John Ruiz Dempsey.'

The Banking System

Bank management business processes clients waiting lines computer EDV IT network servers gold ingot bullion stock safe cash office counter window desk meeting bancomat

`What happens if I take out a loan?'

`Well, sir, we lend you nothing here and you pay us interest on it for years while the people around the table at the back make a fortune.'

You go to a bank to borrow 'money'. Or you think you do. In fact, the 'money' is merely figures typed into your computer account. It does not exist, except as figures in a computer program. The banks are allowed to 'lend' at least ten times what they have on deposit - but this 'deposit', too, is only figures on a screen. There is no 'money', it's all an illusion.

But in return for 'borrowing' this created-out-of-nothing 'money' you must sign over your property, land or business, which is then owned by the bank until you have paid them back the nothing they 'loaned' you, plus interest. If you don't pay back the nothing the banks get your property, land or business.

And even while you are paying back the 'loan' this property - YOUR property - is considered an asset of the bank and they can 'lend' ten times its value to anyone else who wants a loan. In any other language it is called 'fraud'.





Finally this week .. according to this reader my books are banned in Toronto .

Dear David,

Recently I was in a Chapters bookstore looking for your new book. This is the same bookstore where I had bought several of your books. I was informed that all of your books have been banned. The reason they say is because of Satanism in your books. Obviously, they haven't read any of your books; or they are lying about the reason? It's true you talk about Satanism, but in terms of who is practicing it. You certainly are not advocating it.

I called `Indigo`which owns Chapters and they knew right away who I was talking about. They took a message and said the PRO would call me back. They never did. This makes me and my wife want to read your books even more. Please let us know how to obtain a copy of your latest book in Toronto, Canada.



There has been a long campaign over many years in to have me and my books banned from the country. This campaign's most tireless and vociferous advocate is a man called Richard Warman, a lawyer employed by the government who has worked on the campaign with groups like the Canadian Jewish Congress and the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

`If we don't believe in freedom of _expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all.' -

Noam Chomsky


To give you some idea of the mentality we are dealing with here, Richard Warman issued a libel action against me for, in part, calling him an 'enemy of freedom' in my book, Children of the Matrix. The man took objection to being called an enemy of freedom while doing everything he could to have me and my books banned from Canada, thus denying me the freedom to express my views and Canadians the freedom to hear them! This from a man who was employed by the Canadian government's 'Human Rights Commission'. You couldn't make it up.

The 'Satanism' excuse is just the latest one wheeled out. Finding reasons to ban my books is a bit like Bush finding an excuse for the slaughter in - they change to suit the moment. What the books do, of course, is expose the unimaginable horrors that children in particular are subjected to by some of the most famous Satanists in the world.

I was actually asked to do a book signing at the Chapters store in Vancouver during a campaign by Richard Warman and others to have my talk in the city banned. When I arrived for the signing I was led out of the store by security guards because someone had called them to threaten violence if I was allowed to appear.

The whole thing was filmed by a British TV documentary team, a programme that includes footage of Mr. Warman suggesting to his fellow enemies of freedom that they go to another book store and throw pies at me - which they did. (Note to Canadians: this man was paid for years by your tax dollars to work for your government's 'Human Rights' Commission and the last I heard he was still employed by the government in another capacity).

Anyhow, the best way to buy my books is through this website. Here are the links for both the new book and the one Mr. Warman dislikes so much, Children of the Matrix:





New Talk Planned - Brixton 2006

One other thing - we are in the process of arranging for me to speak for the first time in the UK for three years when I appear at the Brixton Academy in London on what looks likely to be May 6 2006. It will be seven hours of the latest information and background using some 700 illustrations. Ticket details to follow.

The venue holds some 2,500 people and any help you can give us with networking the details when they are ready would be much appreciated.

Best wishes,

David Icke
