"Whether or not there are grounds for suspicion of the extraordinary federal failure in New Orleans, it is certain that federal bureaucracies will take advantage of the situation to grab more powers in behalf of their own agendas.

Private parties already are doing so. The New Orleans power elite sees in the recent U.S. Supreme Court Kelo decision, which permits the use of eminent domain to serve private interests, a chance to rebuild New Orleans in their own image.

In the Sept. 8 Wall Street Journal, Christopher Cooper ('Old Line Families Plot the Future') quotes members of the power elite, who admit they are mapping out a new city that will not restore the old order: 'Those who want to see this city rebuilt want to see it done in a completely different way: demographically, geographically and politically,' says James Reiss. 'I'm not just speaking for myself here. The way we've been living is not going to happen again.'

The Journal's report brings to light that the 'teeming (black) underclass,' which guarantees Democratic control of New Orleans, is one part of the old order that is not slated for renewal. In other words, federal failure in New Orleans plus Kelo equals ethnic cleansing of a large, historic American city.

With 40 members of the New Orleans power elite having seized the opportunity to meet in Dallas on Sept. 9 'to begin mapping out a future for the city,' you can bet federal agencies will use the same opportunity to grab heightened powers. The rights that protect U.S. citizens from government power are rapidly disappearing, if not already lost. This is the real crisis faced by the vast majority of Americans who are not a part of the power elite."
