President Barack Obama declared the swine flu outbreak a national emergency! http://www.katu.com/news/national/65903407.html
Stay in your seat. Bend over. Put your head between your legs and possibly kiss the Constitution goodbye as President Obama has declared a National Emergency for the United States of America over H1N1 Swine Flu.
“Thus, in recognition of the continuing progression of the pandemic, and in further preparation as a nation, we are taking additional steps to facilitate our response.” http://www.cnn.com/2009/HEALTH/10/24/h1n1.obama/index.html?iref=mpstoryview
From the CRS Report [not, the Can’t Remember Shit] for Congress on National Emergency Powers http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/natsec/98-505.pdf
Emergency powers are not solely derived from legal sources. The extent of their invocation and use is also contingent upon the personal conception which the incumbent of the Presidential office has of the Presidency and the premises upon which he interprets his legal powers. In the last analysis, the authority of a President is largely determined by the President himself.
President Obama, who has bowed before kings and has admitted he finds flaws in the Constitution, has certainly has wasted no time in letting the world know his conception of his legal powers.
HHS has also moved to make available stockpiles of antiviral drugs including Tamiflu and Relenza. Friday the U.S. Food & Drug Administration issued an emergency use authorization for an experimental new drug called peramivir, made by Biocryst Pharmaceuticals Inc and licensed to Shionogi & Co Ltd. http://healthcaremagazine.blogspot.com/2009/10/obama-declares-swine-flu-national.html Notice of this Declaration was posted in the Federal Register and can be found on the Web at: http://www.thefederalregister.com/d.p/2009-10-02-E9-23761 To learn more about Biocryst-http://www.biocryst.com/
From the U.S government, patient information on Permavir http://www.fda.gov/downloads/Drugs/DrugSafety/PostmarketDrugSafetyInformationforPatientsandProviders/UCM187799.pdf .
What the media has failed to note is that NIH has granted BioCryst $100 million to speed up the development of Peramivir. http://knol.google.com/k/krishan-maggon/peramivir-emergency-use-in-2009-h1n1/3fy5eowy8suq3/74# notes “As most of the Phase II-III trials with the oral and im formulation failed to show clear advantage of Peramivir over placebo, it use should be limited as a last resort for patients not responding to Tamiflu or Relenza during Pandemic outbreak.”
Are we getting our monies worth? In one study, a single intravenous (IV) dose of peramivir in outpatients ill with flu reduced the duration of their symptoms by about 22 hours.http://www.cidrap.umn.edu/cidrap/content/influenza/general/news/oct3108peramivir.html
From AP http://www.ap.org/ – .” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, called the emergency declaration “standard operating procedure,” instead urging “people to think of it as a ‘declaration of emergency preparedness.’ IT IS NOT STANDARD OPERATING PROCEDURE MADAME SECRETARY! So much for Congressional Approval, eh?
Even the most common flu strains are showing resistance to the front line antiviral flu treatments, yet the U.S. government is shipping them- some expired, http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/10/08/tamiflu-expired-children-to-reciev/ and is now adding a last resort intravenous cocktail- Peramivir, that has shown no clear advantage over a placebo to the tune of $100+ million. Shikimic Acid, isolated from the Chinese star anise is the natural ingredient used by the current maker of oseltamivir- it is also produced from Chinchona Bark. http://www.searo.who.int/LinkFiles/Publication_152_RPO_review-situation.pdf
What other privileges does declaring a national emergency give your government and take away from you the citizen? The Administration already called for a National Health Emergency so what is the difference? The move will most definitely allow government agencies to free up federal, state and local agencies and their resources in preventing the spread of the virus. Oh, and don’t forget the Military as we wrote back in April of 2009- http://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/04/27/swine-flu-quarantine-confine-emergency-declared-in-us/
“The next step in the wannabe dictators plan is to declare Martial Law, confiscate all privately owned firearms, round up all dissenters and move them to detention centers. Also there will be detention centers for those who have the H1N1 virus.” http://canadafreepress.com/index.php/article/16142 Listing numeorous Executive Orders that could suspend the Constitution and the Bill of Rights
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10990 allows the government to take over all modes of transportation and control of highways and seaports.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10995 allows the government to seize and control the communication media.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10997 allows the government to take over all electrical power, gas, petroleum, fuels and minerals.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 10998 allows the government to take over all food resources and farms.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11000 allows the government to mobilize civilians into work brigades under government supervision.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11001 allows the government to take over all health, education and welfare functions.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11002 designates the Postmaster General to operate a national registration of all persons.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11003 allows the government to take over all airports and aircraft, including commercial aircraft.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11004 allows the Housing and Finance Authority to relocate communities, build new housing with public funds, designate areas to be abandoned, and establish new locations for populations.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11005 allows the government to take over railroads, inland waterways and public storage facilities.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11051 specifies the responsibility of the Office of Emergency Planning and gives authorization to put all Executive Orders into effect in times of increased international tensions and economic or financial crisis.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11310 grants authority to the Department of Justice to enforce the plans set out in Executive Orders, to institute industrial support, to establish judicial and legislative liaison, to control all aliens, to operate penal and correctional institutions, and to advise and assist the President.
Here are the later Executive Orders:
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11049 assigns emergency preparedness function to federal departments and agencies, consolidating 21 operative Executive Orders issued over a fifteen year period.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 11921 allows the Federal Emergency Preparedness Agency to develop plans to establish control over the mechanisms of production and distribution, of energy sources, wages, salaries, credit and the flow of money in U.S. financial institution in any undefined national emergency. It also provides that when a state of emergency is declared by the President, Congress cannot review the action for six months.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 12148 created the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) that is to interface with the Department of Defense for civil defense planning and funding. An “emergency czar” was appointed. FEMA has only spent about 6 percent of its budget on national emergencies, the bulk of their funding has been used for the construction of secret underground facilities to assure continuity of government in case of a major emergency, foreign or domestic.
EXECUTIVE ORDER 12656 appointed the National Security Council as the principal body that should consider emergency powers. This allows the government to increase domestic intelligence and surveillance of U.S. citizens and would restrict the freedom of movement within the United States and granted the government the right to isolate large groups of civilians. The National Guard could be federalized to seal all borders and take control of U.S. air space and all ports of entry. Many of the figures in the Iran-Contra scandal were part of this emergency contingent, including Marine Colonel Oliver North.
Officials said this was not in response to any single development on an outbreak that has lasted months and has killed more than 1,000 people in the United States. So why declare a National Emergency now?
What else has killed 1000 people in the United States in the same period of time? Drugs, violence, heart attacks, cancer, car accidents, suicides, vaccines?
Where is the Swine Flu Czar to usurp the Constitution?
