The U.S. military wants to establish regional teams of military personnel to assist civilian authorities in the event of a significant outbreak of the H1N1 virus this fall, according to Defense Department officials, wrote CNN in late July. http://edition.cnn.com/2009/US/07/28/military.swine.flu/
We are now well into fall and the midst of falling leaves. It is the season Halloween antics, but it is no treat to witness the trickery of government and using the military to curb the Pandemic Flu.
In Hawaii Gov. Linda Lingle was praising her states vaccine campaign for school children. “Hawai’i became the first state to offer free flu vaccine to elementary and middle school students statewide. “That’s why we’re so well positioned for the H1NI (swine flu)” vaccination campaign, Lingle said.” http://www.honoluluadvertiser.com/article/20091014/NEWS15/910140325/School+flu+inoculation+begins
Eventually, she said, the Department of Health and the Hawai’i National Guard would be administering swine flu vaccine to the general public statewide.”It’s not just going to be children, or course,” Lingle said. “It will be everybody.”
If Hawaii is so well prepared, why will the National Guard be administering H1N1 Swine Flu vaccines? Where are all the doctors, nurses, flu clinics at Wal-Mart, pharmacies and support personnel?
“It will be everybody?” Is she giving advance notice that there are plans to make the H1N1 Influenza Swine vaccine mandatory in Hawaii?
Acting Secretary Charles E. Johnson announced the determination that a public health emergency existed nationwide. Secretary Kathleen Sebelius renewed that determination on July 24, 2009. These actions taken were under the Public Health Service Act § 319 (42 U.S.C. § 247d). This translates to the fact that under this act Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and maybe the Coast Guard too, can be used as any means necessary to combat the spread of H1N1.
The Maine National Guard has stepped up its efforts and getting involved when it comes to combating the H1N1 virus. News 8’s Steve Minich reports here:
From the National Guard website http://www.ng.mil/features/h1n1/default.aspx
The National Guard, however, will not distribute the H1N1 vaccine on its own. The National Guard will not obtain any of it directly … unless it is specific to their state and it’s in their state plan,” said Army Capt. Lisa Burg, a medical plans officer with the National Guard Bureau’s Joint Surgeon’s Office.
If you don’t think the National Guard and the military can’t be used in the event of mandatory quarantine. Think again. A few laws on the books can be found here – https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/09/28/h1n1-swine-flu-quarantine-usa/
In November of 2005, The Bush administration released the National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza providing an outline for coordination among federal agencies, the stockpiling and distribution of vaccines and anti-viral drugs, and, if necessary, government-imposed quarantines and limitations on gatherings. http://homelandsecurity.tamu.edu/framework/special-issues-hurricane-katrina-1/national-strategy-for-pandemic-influenza/
Seeing National Guard in action at gatherings is becoming common place- The Kentucky Derby, The Boston Marathon, New Years Eve in NYC. The Maryland National Guard was put on alert in anticipation of nationwide Tea Party protests! http://www.prisonplanet.com/national-guard-on-alert-for-tea-party-protests.html Maybe your street corner next?
Numerous states have set up emergency contingency plans as well- http://www2a.cdc.gov/phlp/H1N1flu.asp
The use of military assets in civilian law enforcement remains illegal under posse comitatus unless a clear state of emergency exists. Is vaccinating everyone in Hawaii a state of emergency? Apparently Lingle thinks so.
Hawaii’s laws, from the release of President Obama’s birth certificates to the use of the National Guard, sure are different that most of the mainland U.S.
