'Katrina shorthand' strikes at Harper's~Your Right Hand Thief
Local corps projects to receive millions~Robert Zullo
HOUMA — More than $8.6 million federal dollars for Army Corps of Engineers projects in Terrebonne and Lafourche are included in a bill awaiting the Senate’s endorsement and the president’s signature.

Congress votes: water, energy funding~Mankato Free Press
~Steve Scalise, R-La., faulted the bill's New Orleans flood-protection policy. "If we have learned anything from...Katrina, it's that the federal levees that failed us before cannot be rebuilt the same way they were," he said.
~Editilla Licks da'Mold~ And We Shall Trippeth With'eth! We wanteth to tasteth of'th the Body of'th The Exquisite Corps and drinketh of'th the ASCECORPS Cool Aid that Scalise musteth have drunketh...ya'thunketh?
If we learned anything from Katrina, it is the difference between a Weather Event and Multiple Catastrophic Engineering Failures. Weather Events Happen Naturally.
Engineering Failure is Caused by Man Made ASCE'Fuck'Ups!
What I learned from Katrina in New Orleans is to trust in the wisdom of the ages to show me how to dance. What I learned from the Corps of Engineers in New Orleans during Katrina, and especially in their aftermath cover-ups, is more akin to facing down and eliminating the rapists of my little sister. I am tired of seeing the word "Katrina" next to the words "levee failures", because that is a Lie. I was there and saw it with my own lyin'eyes. It Was Not Katrina. Simple. It's The Levees Stupid.
Sucking up to the NO'CO will get you NO'WHERE, Scalise...
--so faggetaboutit you absolutely forking clueless elected official!
Until the likes of Scalise and Jindal and Obama get this stake driven into their hearts, we will never see the end of the Corps' Misdirection and possible Repeat Failures.


Special Thanks Levees.org

Garland Robinette Think Tank
~Lead researcher for Levees.org H.J. Bosworth, and Rep Scalise,
were on Herollero Garland Robinette's Think Tank yesterday.
~If Editilla were fancy live-bloggin this broadcast...
I'd say Bosworth just said Congress gave New Orleans The Finger?
~Scalise speaks of blatant contradictions, yet says the Corps is the Only Game In Town, hopes for Face Time with President when he wanders into the New Orleans Gulf Coast Hurricane Ward Place allegedly sometime later this month.
~Bosworth now says we are in Danger from inoperable Hydraulic Pumps on our outfall canals.
~Scalise lays out clearly our increased Risks from the Lyin'Corps' Option 1 over the saner Option 2 Plans. Admits to having drunk Corps Cool Aid in the past and hallucinating a visit with The Magnificent 7 Luminous Spheres but now has re-awakened to the idea that Temporary Pumps is a worthless con'con proposition of previously owned horse manure?
We'll see...republicans can just get so weird sometimes.
~Bosworth comes back Solid with the Truth about what the Corps Actually Specified regarding these MWI Bad Pumps. (Editilla sees Facts as funny things, laughing alligator tears.)
~Scalise can be heard playing with his Bolo Paddle.
Naaahhh, just kidding... well, we're just really hoping that is what we're hearing. BlancoBlancoBlancoBlancoBlancoBlanco
~Bosworth stresses that a Lie is a Lie and the Government did Not get what we Ordered from the Corps!
(Editilla para-sails a bit here:) Suffice to say...
~Bosworth, himself a Stakeholder, drives a Sterling Silver Freight-Train-sized Rail through the Heart of the Exquisite Corps' Vampire Bullshit.
~Scalise reminds Editilla that Democratic Bourgeois Naivete in Politicians is a Dictator's Best Friend.
~Bosworth puts a fork in it by pointing out the inherent difference between how the Europeans trust real engineering at their 3rd busiest airport 20 feet below sea level as Americans carelessly bend over to assume the position to Lie with the fetid Body of our own Un-Dead Grisly Rotted Exquisite Corps.
~Editilla O'Pines to all Stakeholders! To the Castle!
We Shall Plant Our Stakes In The Heart of the Bloody Red Castle!
Yaaaaahahahahahahaaaaa...whew! Ahem, yes, well...

Wonkette Picks a Winnah!
~Now Ain't She One Fine Piece of Rich Fertile Handmaiden's Tail!
~Set in the Republic of Gilead, a country formed within the borders of what was formerly the United States of America by a racist, chauvinist, nativist, theocratic-organized military coup motivated by an ideologically-driven response to the pervasive ecological degradation of the land, widespread infertility, and attendant social dislocations. Beginning with a staged terrorist attack killing the President and ousting Congress, the coup leaders launched a revolution which overthrew the United States government and abolished the US Constitution. The new theocratic military dictatorship, styled "The Republic of Gilead", moved quickly to consolidate its power and reorganize society along a new militarized, hierarchical, compulsorily-Christian regime of Old Testament-inspired social and religious orthodoxy among its newly-created social classes.

Meanwhile in other news... the Fat Lady's Still Singing!
Typhoon Parma: a new disaster for Asia~Jeff Masters
Corps misappropriates, steals $80,000,000 (Million$$$) from St Bernard Parish Flood Control to pay for other projects
~"It's crazy that they'll cut something this important from our projects and send the money somewhere else," said Bob Turner, the levee authority's executive director.
Turner is particularly concerned that the corps is looking at building a "stop log" closure across the Caernarvon Canal rather than the long-planned sector gate. Such a cost-cutting change would require closing the navigable waterway four to five days before a storm, an unnecessary hardship to marine industries located behind the new floodwall, he said.
"The more severe problem is, what if a tropical storm blows up right off the coast and there's (no) time to get it closed, " he said. "It requires a large crane lifting large pieces in the canal . . . and with high wind and pouring rain, that's dangerous."
~Editilla Slide'rules out Risk Reduction~
~As the Corps of Engineers Absconds with Hundreds of Millions of our hard earned tax dollars for Faulty Pumps and No Outfall Options, they scurry about the Funding Ship of State like trained rats in some nefarious criminal gang looting what money is left to cover their ASCECORPS VERMIN ASSES.
So now the real Shell Game Roulette is in full spin with the Corps.
Where da'Nut? Where da'Nut? Follow da'Nut!
Don't watch da'Hands --FOLLOW DA'NUTS!
Don't listen to da'Man --FOLLOW DA'NUTS!
We told you all this months ago, even last year, that the Corps would wait until the trucks start rolling to really start playing Russian Roulette with a Shell Game. But alas, coming from silly Editilla --not some Smarty'Cat Engineer who is good at interpreting reports-- what does it really matter to the price of rat's ass in China, eh?
Remember how we described the Massive Corps Shell Game? Remember how we would say the Corps are Lying Murderers who will Cheat at Dodge'ball With Our Flood Safety in order to control their own revenue stream? Silly Editilla. Engineers don't Lie.
Who gives a flying nun's fart what we say, eh?
We guess USACE HQ has hit your New Orleans Ladder lo these hundreds of times just for the cheerful banter we direct their way. (-:Hi Corps!:-) They Know How We Love the Corps...just Love'em ta'Bits! But who do we love even more than the Exquisite Corps? Oh, that would be the Engineers who have kept Silent about the Corps Engineering while the Fix Was In.
Now the cylinder is Spun, the Hammer Cocked...
who's going to find the Bullet --Don't Watch The Hands!
A Shell Game of Russian Roulette in a Casino of the Damned.
The Corps knows this is not a game of Engineering where the Truth either works or it fails. The Corps know this game better than anyone, to wit: Criminal Engineering Negligence (CEN) is easier, more lucrative and the witnesses all die-off in the long run.
There is nothing more dangerous than a Lying Engineer...
--because then all we have left to work with is the Word of a Liar.

House Passes Bill with $35 Million in Melancon-Secured Water/Oil and Gas Projects for South Louisiana
~Louisiana RealEstateRama

~“I am extremely disappointed that two hurricane protection projects critical to south Louisiana – Morganza to the Gulf in Lafourche and Terrebonne Parishes and Pump to the River in New Orleans – will not be advanced by this bill. Louisianians who are depending on these projects to protect their homes and businesses are losing patience with the Army Corps, and I share their frustration. Without this protection, we spend every hurricane season hoping and praying that another Katrina or Gustav doesn’t destroy what we have worked so hard to rebuild. In the coming weeks, I will be aggressively working to find a pathway to advance both Morganza and Pump to the River, and will hold the Corps accountable for building the best possible hurricane protection for the people of south Louisiana.”

~Editilla gotta'Ax~ How many hands of Go Fish for Ahn before he finally scores an issue to anchor his drifting platform?
The other day it was "Got any FEMA?" GO FISH! And last week he mewled: "Got any Cat 5 protection?" GO FISH!
But this latest thing that really tickles Editillas bum is the idea of Sacred Cao squinchin'up an impassioned face for anything.

Corps to NOLA: Drop Dead (unless we get Option 1)
The Fix Was In~Matt McBride

~Also~Redaction - an ugly game
~Once again, apparently the Corps is going to let New Orleans drown if they don't get their way. In short, for the last six months, the Corps has been withholding vital information, and in some cases deliberately excising it from the public square, during the fight over Option 1 and Option 2.
In an Administration that is supposedly priding itself on openness and transparency, someone needs to tell the White House that the Corps is subverting those values as much as possible in an effort to advance an agenda not supported by anyone but themselves.

~Editilla Co'tellas~And By The Way...They're Heeeeerrre!
I know the DOD/USACE IGs both said that appropriate action was taken in the recent Corps Felony Computer Fraud, such as stopping such blog-ops. But, it appears that they have not, and indeed (perhaps emboldened by the IG Whitewash) they have expanded this activity, and hit this New Orleans Ladder yesterday 42 times, looking for Matt McBride / Maria Garzino.
Now at well over 20 hours worth of hanging out on your Ladder..
we think it is more than mere pusillanimous Brass Ball Envy!
Why the sudden USACE big interests in what an engineer of this caliber has posted on their Pumps House Gang Scam'doozle?

Hey, USACE, Suck My Toe!?!?

~Please click pic to enlarge~
~While I am not saying such a flood of USACE Hits on my blog is connected to their current Full Court Lobby in Congress against better Options for our Flood Control, ['Pump-to-the-river' fails in Congress ~Mark Schleifstein] I do think such Blog'Ops coming on the heels of this engineers' fine expose is rather, ahem, telling and fortuitous. As such we find it well worth re-posting, spreading and sharing Matt McBride's incredibly detailed layouts of this Slime by the Corps of Engineers New Orleans District of Manipulating and Redacting Critical Data and thus misleading (lying to) the public.

The White House on Wednesday indicated that President Barack Obama's trip to the hurricane damaged Gulf Coast will not include Mississippi, nor, apparently, the Gulf Coast. Poor Obama, he must be getting his directions, taking his cues, again from the Corps?

In Terrebonne, officials say that scientists and engineers contracted by the parish to study the maps have found that incorrect information for roads, levees and other barriers to storm surge yielded flaws in the maps. The maps show streets that stop short of where they actually end and levees, such as one in Dulac, are depicted with gaps that don’t exist.
