Establishment charities have history of withholding disaster funds

As the aftermath of hurricane Katrina continues to
wreak mayhem and havoc amid reports of mass looting, shooting at rescue
helicopters, rapes and murders, establishment media organs are promoting
the Red Cross as a worthy organization to give donations to.
The biggest website in the world, Yahoo.com,
displays a Red Cross donation link prominently on its front page.
Every time there is a major catastrophe the Red Cross
and similar organizations like United Way are given all the media attention
while other charities are left in the shadows. This is not to say that the
vast majority of Red Cross workers are not decent people who simply want
to help those in need.
But what the media fails consistently to remember in
their promotion of the organization is that the Red Cross have been caught
time and time again withholding money in the wake of horrible disasters
that require immediate release of funds.
The Red Cross, under the Liberty Fund, collected $564
million in donations after 9/11. Months after the event, the Red Cross had
distributed only $154 million. The Red Cross' explanation for
keeping the majority of the money was that it would be used to help 'fight
the war on terror'. To the victims, this meant that the money was going
towards bombing broken backed third world countries like Afghanistan and
setting up surveillance cameras and expanding the police state in US cities,
and not towards helping them rebuild their lives.
Then Red Cross President Dr. Bernadine Healy arrogantly
responded when questioned about the withholding of funds by stating, "The
Liberty Fund is a war fund. It has evolved into a war fund."
Despite the family members of victims of 9/11 complaining
bitterly to a House Energy and Commerce Committee's oversight panel, the
issue seemed to be brushed under the carpet and the mud didn't stick.
The Red Cross' scandalous activities reach
back far before 9/11.
After the devastating San Francisco earthquake in 1989,
the Red Cross passed on only $10 million of the $50 million that had been
raised, and banked the rest.
Similar donations after the Oklahoma City bombing in
1995 and the Red River flooding in 1997 were also greedily withheld.
Smaller charities that were involved with the 2004
Tsunami relief project went public to say that large charities like Red
Cross and United Way were engaged in secret backroom negotiations with each
other that meant a large portion of the donation money was purposefully
restricted from reaching the most needy areas affected by the disaster.
The history is clear, the Red Cross and other large
so-called charities are in actual fact front group collection agencies for
the military industrial complex.
Many informed historians have even alleged that the
Red Cross was used as a Skull and Bones cover to overthrow The Russian Czar
and pave the way for the rise of the Bolsheviks.
Do not give any money to the Red Cross unless you support
the expansion of empire abroad and police state at home. Find a smaller
trustworthy organization in the local area of New Orleans and make your
donation to them.

Hopefully the above alternatives are ok, I don't know. The difficult part is that almost every organization work together with the Red Cross, so they'll collect it all in the end anyway.

"In addition to the history contained in the above story [this story], the Red Cross has some additional interesting history. During the times of the Crusades, the Knights Templar's brother and parallel Roman Catholic military order, the Knights Hospitaller also ran recuperative facilities which became known as hospitals, as a cover. The Templar's cover was to protect the religious pilgrim's to Jerusalem, however the entire original handful of members kept themselves cooped up full time on the site of the Temple Mount for something like a decade during the early 1100s.
During the Vatican's fake (see below) Templar suppression in 1307, the Templars that didn't escape to Scotland and elsewhere simply became transferred into the Knights Hospitaller along with the vast Templar property holdings. The Knights Hospitaller have since evolved into the Knight's of Malta and claim to be strictly a humanitarian service organization today. Indeed, I personally saw on television Knights of Malta aid workers performing duties in Afghanistan only days after the American invasion. Interestingly, all of the aid workers were American Vietnam veterans. Of course, I'm positive that the fact that Afghanistan has large fields of opium poppies has no similarities with the Vietnam situation. Impossible." Read more
