It wasn’t an Act of God. It was an Act of Chevron. An Act of Exxon. An Act of Big Oil. gregpalast.com/new-orleans-wi… #NewOrleans #Louisiana #HurricaneKatrina #Barry #BigOil #Pollution #Environment #ClimateChange
Take a look at these numbers dug out of #Louisiana state records:

Conoco 3.3 million acres
Exxon Mobil 2.1 million acres
Chevron 2.7 million acres
Shell 1.3 million acres

These are the total acres of wetlands removed by just four oil companies over two decades.
#NewOrleans used be to a long, swampy way from the Gulf of Mexico. #Hurricanes & storm surges had to cross a protective mangrove forest nearly a 100 miles thick. Then Standard Oil, Exxon’s prior alias, began channeling pipelines & tanker routes thu the soft delta prairie grass.

In 2005 I explained exactly how #NewOrleans drowned and would drown again, maybe in the next few days... gregpalast.com/new-orleans-wi… #Louisiana #HurricaneKatrina #Barry #BigOil
I hope you don’t think #Trump and his army corps of engineers gives a damn about a black city sinking. #Katrina turned #Louisiana from blue to red, a form of voter purging that includes murder in its method. gregpalast.com/new-orleans-wi… #Barry
But DON’T blame the Lady. #Katrina killed no one. In fact, she missed the city of #NewOrleans completely, going wide to the east. It wasn’t Mother Nature that drowned, suffocated, de-hydrated and starved nearly 2,000 people in 2005. This is the real story. gregpalast.com/how-mother-nat…

[1] New page created for the International Mining Corporation - Mostly newspaper scraps at this time.

Very interesting company - I suspect we will find that in the 1950s the CIA was behind the scenes principal investors in them.

[2] The International Mining Corporation took ownership of the #CantonCompany in 1960 , so that is what led me down this path.

All of the #Urenco shipping via port of Baltimore still goes through these piers today.

[3] "275,000 acres" in southern #Louisiana owned by the "new" International Mining Corporation"

I have a hunch this is going to connect to "Louisiana Energy Services (LES)"

Could be wrong, but that would be an astounding lead

We are going to have a frank talk about women’s rights, boycotts and big tents. The vast majority of Americans and the vast majority of Democrats support Roe v Wade and the autonomy and liberty of patents to choose the size and timing of their families. We must #StopTheBans. 1/
People are mobilizing on Tuesday May 21 to rally support for women’s rights and patients’ reproductive justice. (yes, trans and non-binary people can get pregnant too - be inclusive!) We must show support for patients and doctors criminalized under these extreme laws. Sign up! 2/
Sadly, one of our rallies must be in #Louisiana where a Democratic Governor pledged to sign a bill banning abortion rights even in the case of rape and incest. It’s awful and people should ask @LouisianaGov to give patients the same choice his wife had! 3/ cbsnews.com/news/democrati…

It makes me physically ill that this article becomes more relevant as time goes on. #AlabamaAbortionBan #Georgia
I think you misunderstood the article.

Accusing me of spreading child pornography is a bit much - but at least it’s a new hot take perspective on my work that no one has yet offered.

A+ for originality.

So I spent yesterday in a place I've written about but never really visited (which is always surreal): the Pearl River Swamp on the border of #Louisiana & #Mississippi.
During the Civil War this area (which is very close to the Free State of Jones that @vikki_bynum wrote about) was filled with anti-Confederate white men hiding out, trying to avoid having to fight the slaveholders' war.
I couldn't stop thinking about the WPA slave narratives about the area. The anti-Confederate whites learned how to hide from the enslaved, who learned from Native Americans.

I will say this, over and over again.None of these numbers are even close to what the polls are saying.We are leading by large margins everywhere. I honestly am not seeing us just barely hanging onto the house at this point. Its looking more and more like we win big in the house!

I was looking at Louisiana Secretary of State candidates the other day. I came across one who had a website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. And they all told me nothing.
The candidate used a slogan repeatedly, but there was no indication of what that slogan really meant.
Let's take Shirley Chisholm's Presidential run for example. Now, she didn't even win the Democratic nomination (and that's another story), but Shirley had a memorable campaign slogan: Unbought & Unbossed.

She didn't just say she was unbought and unbossed; she showed you how.

According to Chuck Todd, host of @MTPDaily, this tweet is a “tell” that Donald Trump is panicked about the effort from 18 Republican Attorneys General to challenge the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in court▶️seeking to end protections for those with pre-existing conditions. #LieGate
⚡️It’s certainly not a good look for Republicans less than 3 weeks from the November Election.

▶️Neither is talking about separating more children from their parents and putting them in cages
▶️Neither is talking about stripping Social Security & Medicare programs
▶️Neither is protecting the murderers of a respected journalist, then using money as the reason and inflating the numbers while you’re doing it

Immigration & Customs Enforcement—more commonly known as ICE, is a law enforcement agency of the federal government of the U.S. tasked to enforce the immigration laws of the United States & to investigate criminal and terrorist activity of foreign nationals residing in the U.S.
ℹ️ICE has two primary components: Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO). It is an agency under the jurisdiction of Homeland Security and was established in 2003 following the 9/11 tragedy.

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._Immi…
ICE was designed to keep us safe from terrorists—for instance, the terrorists who took over the planes on 9/11 were living undetected in the U.S. for over a year.

Pls read this thoroughly before commenting. The Trump administration has corrupted this agency to do horrific acts.

Two years ago, my city was DEVASTATED by an unnamed storm that dropped over 3 feet of rain in 3 days. We had no warning. No weatherman knew this was coming.
We call it The Great Flood of 2016.
I remember my neighborhood street turning into a NO WAKE ZONE. 😢

My home was one of 10% in our city of 27,000 who DIDN'T flood. Abba Father created a vessel of me, and filled me with Providence for my city. Imet with the Mayor who handed me keys to a small, empty building on high ground, and I made a Facebook page. facebook.com/CentralDonatio…
