Just as news was spreading about the new H1N1 Swine Flu and Americans were heading to Mexico for Spring Break, the U.S. Military effectively closed the border for it’s own personell.  http://www.vaccines.mil/documents/1239USNORTHCOM_H1N1_MEXICO.pdf

Distributed April 15, 2009 came another warning regarding military travel to Mexico.  http://docs.google.com/gview?a=v&q=cache:j0b8TH6NQN0J:https://www.bliss.army.mil/bliss_home_files/documents/policy/TravelPolicyforMexico09-001.pdf+USNORTHCOM+travel+to+mexico&hl=en&gl=us&sig=AFQjCNGFi7jNwsE9-U7m-TlEAXzXF0cwdg   All military travel along the Mexican State of Chihuahia and ALL Mexican cities along the U.S. -Mexico border are off limits……     Found in a Yahoo message group post of all places.  July 26, 2005– “Since USNORTHCOM issued its travel advisory for Mexico our office has been overwhelmed with requests for information…. http://www.mail-archive.com/osint@yahoogroups.com/msg13317.html  Read that date 2005!  The warning flags were up for military personell and Department of Defense Officicials sealing off sections of our border with Mexico, while the average Joe the Plumber could hop across the border for a Corona with little government warning about H1N1 Risk or threat of serious crime.                                                 

As far back as 2006, preparations have been made for just such a Pandemic. http://www.olligmu.org/~docstore/800docs/0809-801OLLI%20Vaccines%20Srs%2030Sept08FIN.ppt#494,43,Headline  Prepared by the Osher Lifelong Learning Center Sept. 30, 2008. The Report outlines Pandemic Preparedness from a 1996 pandemic.gov site to include: Vaccination Prioritization, Expand Internet Capacity for work at home, Tresury Dept- other countries produce currency, VA drive through medical exams and vaccinations, 12-18 month crisis, up to 1.9 Million deaths in U.S.,.  It goes on to say: Use drugs from National Stockpile Cancel Large Gatherings Encourage School Closings, Dispatch National Guard if necessary, Introduce Travel Restrictions, Role of Containment and Quarantine…  It appears the government has taken most of it’s own advice as has the Ukraine. This week it annouced border closures, restriction of movements and creation of “special regimes” to oversee adverse effects. https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/11/01/swine-flu-quarantine-in-ukraine-border-closed/ 

The Department of State has issued this Travel Alert to update security information (current as of 11/02/09) for U.S. citizens traveling to and living in Mexico.  It supersedes the Travel Alert for Mexico dated February 20, 2009, and expires on February 20, 2010.  http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/pa/pa_4491.html It makes no mention of the H1N1 pandemic but notes the vast increase in crime throughout the country.  

Health information on Travel to Mexico from the CDC is more focused on Malaria and that more people are killed in car accidents. http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/mexico.aspx There also no mention of H1N1.    

The CDC claims The United States is not screening travelers who arrive from other countries or depart for other countries.http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/content/news-announcements/delays-H1N1-screening.aspx But in April 2009-  Richard Besser, acting director of the CDC, revealed that the U.S. authorities were starting to undertake “passive screening” at its borders. He restated the Obama administration’s call on Sunday for people to stay calm.” http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2009-04/28/content_11269405.htm 

Dr Salim J. Habayeb, WHO Representative to India said, “Our official WHO position is not to recommend travel restrictions under existing circumstances for pandemic H1N1 2009. But many countries did institute cross-border measures based on past deliberations. Such travel measures may possibly be useful in the early stages, what we call the containment stage.  But at the pandemic phase 6, such containment measures are of limited value since the infection is disseminated and spreading at the community level. http://htsummit.hindustantimes.com/summit-news/airport-screening-for-h1n1-of-limited-value-now-1.php  

The Department of State has issued an alert for  U.S. citizens to the quarantine measures imposed by the Government of China in response to the 2009-H1N1 pandemic that may affect travel to China.  This Travel Alert updates the July 9, 2009, Travel Alert in order to advise U.S. citizens of the current quarantine situation.  This Travel Alert expires on December 30, 2009. From May to August 2009, the Department of State received thousands of reports of quarantined U.S. citizens http://travel.state.gov/travel/cis_pa_tw/pa/pa_4238.html    We would expect one to be issued for the Ukraine soon.

In the interest of safety or tracking your whereabouts, Travel registration is a free service provided by the U.S. Government to U.S. citizens who are traveling to, or living in, a foreign country. Registration allows you to record information about your upcoming trip abroad that the Department of State can use to assist you in case of an emergency.https://travelregistration.state.gov/ibrs/ui/  

You might be able to get out of the U.S., but getting in may not be as easy. Even in the U.S., airlines have the right to deny boarding to passengers for any number of reasons, including sobriety, hygiene and illness, according to Wayne Harvey, president of the Airport Facilities Council of the International Facilities Management Association. http://www.google.com/hostednews/canadianpress/article/ALeqM5gOJ-kQ4v4Duh-QZRjI28neFkXwmQ

Swine Flu, H1N1 remains a threat to not only to our health, but to The Constitution of The United States itself giving the federal and state governments more power to eliminate your personal freedoms.  

Government authorities are preparing a massive flu vaccine campaign just as they did for the previous Swine Flu epidemic whose vaccine killed more people than the disease.  

The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Department of Education (ED) and Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street, have teamed up to launch a new, national public service advertising campaign designed to encourage American children and families to practice healthy habits and to take steps to prevent the spread of the 2009 H1N1 flu virus. The PSAs featured in this campaign can be viewed on www.flu.gov.

While President Obama is pondering yet another press conference to address the nation on his faltering health care reform, you can bet your last dime he won’t mention his potential ability to seize the Internet, require mandatory vaccines, quarantines and FEMA’s charge to take control of  the country. 

From The White House:

“Since the novel 2009-H1N1 flu virus emerged in the United States during the third week of April, the president has received regular briefings and asked his Cabinet to spare no effort in addressing this national security challenge.”  The White House is, “Preparing for a voluntary, but strongly recommended, H1N1 flu shot program to be available to all Americans that wish to participate over a period of time.”

By declaration of the Public Health Emergency months ago, The Stafford Act or as it has been renamed- the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 gives FEMA the responsibility for coordinating government-wide relief efforts. The Federal Response Plan it implements includes the contributions of 28 federal agencies and non-governmental organizations.

The recent “REPORT TO THE PRESIDENT ON U.S. PREPARATIONS FOR 2009-H1N1 INFLUENZA  August 7, 2009 http://www.whitehouse.gov/assets/documents/PCAST_H1N1_Report.pdf  lists a scary landscape of abuse including recommendations like-

…that Federal, state, and local authorities may take unilateral action such as border closure, seizure of essential commodities, or curtailment of individual freedoms, out of fear or as a result of public pressure….  We also recommend that the National Security Council, led by the Homeland Security Advisor, undertake a systematic review of potential legal, social, and financial barriers to action, to determine which might reasonably be ameliorated….

Numerous states aren’t waiting for President Obama, FEMA, the CDC or Homeland Security to ameliorate our Constitution and have begun legislation that erodes your personal freedom.  Massachusetts state Senate has a “Pandemic Response Bill” awaiting approval in the House. http://www.mass.gov/legis/bills/senate/186/st02pdf/st02028.pdf  giving full immunity to anyone, the bill in part- excerpted from http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=108604 

“upon declaration by the governor that an emergency exists that is considered detrimental to public health or upon declaration of a state of emergency, a local public health authority, with approval of the commissioner, may exercise the following authorities (emphasis added):

  • to require the owner or occupier of premises to permit entry into and investigation of the premises;
  • to close, direct, and compel the evacuation of, or to decontaminate or cause to be decontaminated any building or facility, and to allow the reopening of the building or facility when the danger has ended;
  • to decontaminate or cause to be decontaminated, or to destroy any material;
  • to restrict or prohibit assemblages of persons;
  • to require a health care facility to provide services or the use of its facility, or to transfer the management and supervision of the health care facility to the department or to a local public health authority;
  • to control ingress to and egress from any stricken or threatened public area, and the movement of persons and materials within the area;
  • to adopt and enforce measures to provide for the safe disposal of infectious waste and human remains, provided that religious, cultural, family, and individual beliefs of the deceased person shall be followed to the extent possible when disposing of human remains, whenever that may be done without endangering the public health;
  • to procure, take immediate possession from any source, store, or distribute any anti-toxins, serums, vaccines, immunizing agents, antibiotics, and other pharmaceutical agents or medical supplies located within the commonwealth as may be necessary to respond to the emergency;
  • to require in-state health care providers to assist in the performance of vaccination, treatment, examination, or testing of any individual as a condition of licensure, authorization, or the ability to continue to function as a health care provider in the commonwealth;
  • to waive the commonwealth’s licensing requirements for health care professionals with a valid license from another state in the United States or whose professional training would otherwise qualify them for an appropriate professional license in the commonwealth;
  • to allow for the dispensing of controlled substance by appropriate personnel consistent with federal statutes as necessary for the prevention or treatment of illness;
  • to authorize the chief medical examiner to appoint and prescribe the duties of such emergency assistant medical examiners as may be required for the proper performance of the duties of office;
  • to collect specimens and perform tests on any animal, living or deceased

Can you spell cooperative federalism? The Tenth Amendment restates the Constitution’s principle of federalism by providing that powers not granted to the national government nor prohibited to the states are reserved to the states or the people.  Congress has exercise its powers by offering or encouraging the States to implement national programs consistent with national minimum standards as it has done with the nationwide state 55 mph (90 km/h) speed limit .08 legal blood alcohol limit, and the nationwide state 21-year drinking age were imposed through this method; the states would lose highway funding if they refused to pass such laws. – sourced at WIKI. 

Today, AP is reporting that officials with Emory University in Atlanta say around 50 students with swine flu have been moved to a separate dorm. Those students are not attending classes and school workers are bringing them food.  Lucky them. http://www.gpb.org/news/2009/09/02/emory-students-with-swine-flu-housed-together

As if FEMA and the government doesn’t have enough power, if this bill passes, Massachusetts will certainly be prepared for a Flu Emergency.   DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano declared September, National Preparedness Month. 

Government needs to take steps to protect it’s citizens against terrorism, natural disasters and even disease, but I ask if you are prepared to see our Constitution get killed in the name of Swine Flu?
