Mississippi Threatening New Orleans With Worst Flood Since 1927

May 13, 2011: Steven John Hibbs & Kimberly Jones / The Tonka Report (TTR) – May 13, 2011

 May 13, 2011: Kimberly Jones’ Email

I really never know how much news in New Orleans actually gets out of New Orleans.

You might want to do a little of your research magic. The short version of a long story is the Mississippi is about to dump much wrath on Louisiana, mainly between Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

The special part of this is the way the Army Corp of Engineers are once again being allowed to play Gods. They know what is headed for us and they know what they have to do to keep New Orleans from being totally destroyed. They opened the Bonnet Carrie spillway on Monday and I was there in person. I have a special relationship with the spillway and I had to watch them turn it into a massive lake. Sad, but necessary.

Now they need to open the Morganza spillway closer to Baton Rouge and the CoE is talking about it being a question. As if there is any question what so ever if they do not open it.

Here is their apparent issue……

The Morganza Spillway was opened for the first and only time in 1973 to relieve pressure from the Old River Control Structure (ORCS). [2][3] The spillway received minor scouring and slight damage to the stilling basin. After the 1973 flood, the structure was restored to its original condition.

In 2008, a flood caused portions of the levee at the spillway to deteriorate and sent floodwaters into cropland located within the floodway.

[4] It is because of this damage to the levées around the spillway and the extent to which the structure itself was undermined by just the ’73 test that the Morganza Spillway has never been opened since, though it would have been useful during several subsequent years to relieve pressure on the Old River Control Structure.

Studies by the Army Corps of Engineers after the test determined that once opened, it would likely never close again, and could be ripped from its footings, allowing the Mississippi River to jump its banks and flow primarily through the Atchafalaya Basin.

While this would leave New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and the Port of New Orleans practically high and dry, the Atchafalaya Basin would become the the main artery of the Mississippi River below Morganza and several cities along the bucolic Atchafalaya River would be flooded and a new delta would begin forming immediately. The failure of the Morganza structure would be disastrous beyond imagination for the residents of south Louisiana and international commerce.

I can speak volumes on what is going on but I know you like to see for yourself.

Here is our most recent “update”:

=======================================================

May 13, 2011: David Usborne, US Editor / The Independent – May 13, 2011

The flood is expected to crest next Thursday at Vicksburg, where the Mississippi and Yazoo rivers meet, at a level easily higher than in the Great Flood of 1927…

The bursting Mississippi was threatening last night to submerge still more farmland, homes and even towns as an enormous swell of water fed by spring rains and snow-melt forged its way to the Gulf of Mexico, unleashing some of the worst flooding since the Great Depression.

While some towns already soaked by the river’s wrath further to the north – including Memphis in Tennessee and Cairo in Illinois – were yesterday beginning the task of cleaning up as water levels begin to fall, the worst is still to come for low-lying areas of the Mississippi Delta and Louisiana.

In Louisiana, which has in recent years suffered Hurricane Katrina and the BP oil spill, engineers were getting ready to begin gradually opening sluices on the giant Morganza Spillway just north of the state capital, Baton Rouge. The 5,000ft span of gates has been opened only once before in history.

It is not a decision that will be taken lightly, however. While diverting some of the river’s fury through the gates means lowering the risk that levees will be overtopped in Baton Rouge and further downriver in New Orleans, it will mean deliberately flooding vast areas of the state west of the river and close to the coast.

With the first gates likely to be opened at the weekend or early next week, entire cities may be forced to evacuate in the path of the escaping water, including Houma, where the BP clean-up and spill-response teams are housed, and Morgan City. As many as 13,000 buildings, 25,000 people and 3 million acres of land are likely to be impacted, the authorities said.

The situation across parts of the Mississippi Delta was already dire last night, with as many as 600 homes already touched or swamped by muddy water filled with debris and snakes. Residents were on high alert in the city of Vicksburg, where the Mississippi and Yazoo rivers merge. The flood is expected to crest there next Thursday at a level easily higher than was seen in the so-called Great Flood of 1927.

At Natchez, Mississippi, a little further downstream, the high-water mark stood yesterday at 58.3ft. That was already higher than the 53.04ft mark set in 1937, another year of historic flooding along the river.

Residents have already abandoned their homes in the town of Tunica Cutoff, Mississippi, which last night was entirely cut off leading some in the area to predict it would be swept off the map entirely. “We don’t know from day to day,” said Lee Sherwin, 77, who fled Tunica Cutoff and is in a Red Cross shelter. “We don’t know if we are going to want to go back or even if we can go back. I’ve never in my life run into a situation like this, but we are living with it day by day.”

Already some economists are warning that this year’s spring floods are likely to cause damage worth between $2bn and $4bn. “Crop loss estimates are definitely around $800m for Mississippi alone,” said John Michael Riley, an economics professor at Mississippi State University. The Great Flood of 1927 was estimated to have cost the US about $230m, the equivalent of $2.8bn today.

The final toll will not be known until the crest finally reaches the Mississippi’s mouth in just under two weeks. And much will depend on what happens at the Morganza Spillway and also how well levees and flood-protection walls elsewhere hold up.

There was concern about levees protecting low-lying communities on the Yazoo close to Vicksburg. Were they to fail, a wall of water could inundate large areas of the Mississippi Delta, already one of the most impoverished regions of the United States. Hailey Barbour, the Governor of Mississippi, urged anyone who thought their home might be at risk to get out as fast as possible. “More than anything else, save your life and don’t put at risk other people who might have to come in and save your lives,” he said.

Governor Barbour also raised concern about the small numbers of families in the region who have neither phones nor electricity. “They are a tiny number but we must find them,” he said.

Cotton-picking and other farms still provide most of the employment in the Delta. Nine of the 11 counties that touch the Mississippi River in the state have poverty rates at least double the national average of 13.5 per cent, according to the US Census Bureau.

While no formal decision had been made on opening sluice-gates at the Morganza Spillway, Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana said that people should assume that that would happen and anyone living in the path of the water once it was unleashed should evacuate the area as soon as possible.

Thousands Fleeing In Advance Of Spillway Opening

More Fake Photos Emerge In Government’s Osama Bin Laden Farce

leave a comment »

May 7, 2011: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – May 7, 2011

This entire Osama Bin Laden farce is beyond absurd at this point. Here is yet another photoshopped image, this time of his wife’s passport.

If this is the best the government can produce to continue this fairytale lie, this country is in serious trouble, and is unravelling faster than this outlandish attempt to sell the Osama Bin Dead fantasy.

Everything about this fraud being purported by our criminal government has turned out to be a lie, from the admittedly staged “situation room” photo to Bin Laden’s wife being killed by throwing herself in the line of fire.

Habeas Corpus! Show me the body! Where is the proof? Floating with the fishes at the bottom of the Arabian Sea?

Habeas Corpus! Show me the pictures of the body! Again, where is the proof? But of course that will never happen if this is the best image these incompetent traitors can produce. Remember the first death photo released of Osama Bin Dead was an admitted photoshopped fake, as was the latest Obama “birth certificate”!

They can’t produce any evidence because Osama Bin Dead Laden has been dead since December 2001. This latest fake photo appears in its original photoshopped form in the following article at the Daily Mail…

Obama Birth Certificate: Discrepencies Challenge The Authenticity

with one comment

April 28, 2011: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – April 28, 2011

What a media circus concerning this obviously fake document. It took me less than half an hour tonight to find glaring discrepencies with the authenticity of Barack Hussein Obama’s so-called long form birth certificate from Hawaii that was suddenly released on April 27.

In the photograph of the computer generated document, Obama’s father’s race/color is listed as “African”. There was no such term as “African” used in 1961. It should and would have been entered in as either “Kenyan” or “Negro” (black).

This in turn opens up another can of worms, first of which, is that it lists Obama’s father’s origin of birth as “Kenya”, which means his father, as a Kenyan national was a British citizen.

If the father listed on the document is indeed Obama’s father, Obama is a dual citizen, thus according to The Natural Born Citizen Clause of the US Constitution, he is ineligible to become president, as both parents must be US citizens at the time of birth.

Also, Kenya was not called “Kenya” back in 1961 at the time of Obama’s birth…  It was the British East Africa Protectorate. It was not known as “Kenya” until 1963.” (courtesy: WRH)

The document also lists the hospital’s name as Kapiolaini Maternity and Gynecological Hospital… “It did not change its name to the Kapiolani Maternity & Gynecological Hospital until it merged with the Kapiolani hospital system in 1978.” (courtesy: WRH)

It was the merger in 1978 of the Kapiolani Maternity Home established in 1890 and the Kauikeolani Childrens Hospital established in 1909. This in and by itself indicates that the document could not possibly have been generated in 1961, and thus it is not an original.

Look closely at (Stanley) Ann Dunham Obama’s signature… Did she forget her full legal name? Have you? And note there is no signature from a doctor. Also, the mother didn’t sign the document until 3 days later, with the “attendant” signing it the day after that. My birth certificate in 1960 was signed by both my mother and the doctor on the actual day of birth.

Lastly, at the bottom of this computer generated document it is dated “April 25, 2011”. Notice that it states that it is a “COPY OR ABSTRACT”. This is from a registrar certifying that this document is nothing more than a copy of a copy. It is not the original birth certificate. If it were, it would have the raised seal of the state of Hawaii stamped on the document. This is a forgery, and a poorly conceived one at that… Why?

Proof Obama’s “Long Form Certificate of Birth” is Forged

The Tonka Report Editor’s Note: This document is a complete fraud in order to hide who Barack Obama’s real father is… Frank Marshall Davis, and to obfuscate the adoption issue by Soetoro in Indonesia… – SJH

‘I Know What’s Coming Down The Pike. And Inherently, So Do You’

with 4 comments

April 22, 2011: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – April 22, 2011

For the past 12 years I have been sounding the alarm. Not that I wasn’t always a skeptic of government, educational, religious, and media propaganda, because I was.

I remember in grade school back in the 1960s having to “duck and tuck” during school drills, like that was going to save us from a Russian nuclear attack?

Ask the Japanese how that worked out in Hiroshima and Nagasaki… It was a joke, and mass murder.

In 6th grade, I challenged my so-called teacher concerning the “Cold War” against the big bad bear, and asked… “Shouldn’t we be more concerned with China?” Needless to say, his response was a blank stare of propagandized state brainwashing ignorance.

Actually, even at that age I knew inherently who the real enemy was. It was, and still is, within the halls of Congress, the Supreme Court, Executive Branch, and the banks and secret societies who really run this Houdini side-show of macabre theater.

Nevertheless, I still joined the US Marine Corps and did my service honorably, albeit I was a relentless target of my superiors. I had the mind, body, and leadership to be one of their superstars as they pushed hard to put the reins on me. But I had a mind of my own, and a spirit that was free, and one that still is to this day.

Thus, I am not broken morally or spiritually. I’ve murdered nobody in the name of faux America, I’ve murdered nobody in the name of their false christ, and I am to this day free of that guilt and their crimes. I am not beholden to their cryptic system, because I actually understand it and refuse to play ball under their Orwellian and Luciferian rules.

However, as time and events accelerate, there is a division, a quickening and a blinding, of what is created reality and what is actually the truth. As a result, I find myself not only angry and frustrated with the illusions and ignorance of people, but faltering in my own hope as a result of my energy and knowledge wafting off into space. That is the sign to consider resigning. I know what’s coming down the pike. And inherently, so do you.

Peace and God bless… No Fear!!

Despotism And Democracy – Democracy Vs Republic – Two Videos

leave a comment »

April 8, 2011: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – April 8, 2011

As you watch the first video produced circa 1945 by Encyclopaedia Britannica Films Inc., it is quite easy for those aware to pick out the propaganda in this cleverly disguised “anti-propaganda” short film from Yale (Skull and Bones) University.

But even its premise is a lie from the beginning. This country was never based on a democratic system by the founding fathers, understanding the fatality of such. It was founded as a Republic, not a democracy, remember that! 

Watch these two videos and see if you can see the deception in the first video, and then see the difference between a democracy and a Republic as you watch the second video…

Woody Guthrie: 1913 Massacre – True Story Of Labor Vs The Corp

leave a comment »

February 28, 2011: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – February 28, 2011

This piece was cobbled together by TTR… – SJH

The Italian Hall Disaster (sometimes referred to as the 1913 Massacre) is a tragedy that occurred on December 24, 1913 in Calumet, Michigan.

Seventy-three men, women, and children, mostly striking mine workers and their families, were crushed to death in a stampede when someone falsely yelled “fire” at a crowded Christmas party.

Background

The Calumet and Hecla Mining Company (“C&H”) was formed from the consolidation of the Calumet and Hecla mining companies in 1871. C&H was the single largest copper mining company in Michigan’s copper country, which includes Copper Island. One of the longest strikes in the copper country took place in 1913, and included all the C&H mines.

The Western Federation of Miners first established a local in the area in 1908 but it wasn’t until 1913 that the WFM had a large enough membership to effectively strike. At the time, there were perhaps 15,000 men working in the mines and the WFM claimed 9,000 of them as members. The membership voted in favor of demanding union recognition from management, and asking “for a conference with the employers to adjust wages, hours, and working conditions in the copper district of Michigan.”

The membership also voted to “declare a strike” if management refused to “grant a conference or concessions.” After the vote was held, the WFM sent letters to the mines demanding the conference; the mine managers refused the request and the strike was called on July 23, 1913. The strike would not end until April, 1914; the miners and the mines were still at a standoff at Christmas, 1913, in a strike that was then five months old.

The Disaster

On Christmas Eve many of the striking miners and their families had gathered for a Christmas party sponsored by the Ladies Auxiliary of the Western Federation of Miners.[4] It is estimated that there were over five hundred people at the party, which was held on the second floor of Calumet’s Italian Hall. A steep stairway was the only way to the second floor, although there was a poorly-marked fire escape on one side of the building and ladders down the back of the building which could only be reached by climbing through the windows.

The tragedy began when someone yelled “Fire!”; there was none. However, people panicked and rushed for the stairs. In the ensuing melee, seventy-three people (including fifty-nine children) were killed. To date there has been much debate about who cried “fire” and why. The most common theory is that “fire” was called out by an anti-union ally of mine management in order to disrupt the party…
