Volcanic Ash Predition, U.S.A.?

Iceland’s Volcanic Ash Dust Cloud Heading to North America, is Martial Law Coming With it?

The volcanic ash cloud forecast from eruptions from the Eyjafjallajokull glacier looks to have the ash cloud heading toward the eastern part of Canada and perhaps the eastern coast of the U.S.A. depending on weather patterns.  “Another setback came on Monday evening for millions of stranded passengers as Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano sent a fresh cloud of ash 15,000 feet into the air. Amid travel concerns, some flights resumed on Tuesday.” http://www.accuweather.com/blogs/news/story/30555/amid-worsening-ash-cloud-situa.asp

If the volcano’ s dust reaches the U.S. can you imagine the chaos of closed airspace?

The Royal Navy was dispatched in the U.K to help stranded passengers, even as Fox is reporting that the Brits are re-opening some airspace.  You can follow some of the planes in real time here http://www.radarvirtuel.com/.  This seems a pretty stupid idea to give terrorists just one more tool to track airspace, none-the-less there it is- and here’s just one example of one flight that made it safely with all data for the world to see-

Flight Number : KLM643

Really does, anyone outside of air traffic need to know the exact location of a plane?  Hell, why not publish the passenger manifest list while you are at it? Jerks.  Taking it one farther is http://www.libhomeradar.org/ where not only can you track, but see photos and get specs on planes.

libhomeradar is a library written in plain C which makes the communication with the Kinetic Avionic SBS-1 box and the AirNav Systems RadarBox very easy. 

In the U.S.A. we have  http://flightaware.com/live/ currently-

FlightAware has tracked 45,374 arrivals in the last 24 hours.

You can also text to: “GOOGLE” then, type in the call sign of the aircraft you are looking for. “UAL472” for example or track all active flights on Google Earth at http://fboweb.com/antest/ge/geALLFLIGHTS.kmz.

Whoa.  That’s just wrong for air traffic safety.  Has Obama nominated anyone to head up the Federal Aviation Administration yet? http://www.faa.gov/ It looks like lobbyist J. Randolph Babbitt is up for the job. http://www.capecodtoday.com/blogs/index.php/2009/04/18/alliance-lobbyist-named-to-head-the-faa?blog=109

Implications of closing U.S. airspace would go far up to food chain and well into Homeland Security.  Would President Obama dispatch all those military personnel already on active duty on U.S. Soil, which is already a clear violation of  the Constitution?  Recall, the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce Defense Directive 1404.10 (read  PDF ) promises exactly what President Obama said, “”We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/06/25/martial-law-under-public-health-emergency/

On April 13, 2010 The Conservative Examiner wrote:

In October of this year, one month prior to the November midterm elections, a special army unit known as ‘Consequence Management Response Force’ will be ready for deployment on American soil if so ordered by the President.

The special force, which is the new name being given to the 1st Brigade Combat Team of the 3rd Infantry, has been training at Fort Stewart, Georgia and is composed of 80,000 troops.

According to the Army Times,

They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack.The key phrase is ‘may be called upon to help with civil unrest.’  http://www.examiner.com/x-37620-Conservative-Examiner~y2010m4d13-Special-army-unit-ready-to-be-deployed-on-American-soil-just-before-Nov-elections

You can follow the 3rd brigade on twitter or facebook from http://www.stewart.army.mil/units/1BCT/home.asp

Besides the ‘Consequence Management Response Force’ capability, putting on a legitimate face to XE, Blackwater, or The American Police Force does not preclude them from being a militia capable of effectively supporting state and federal emergency response units. Federal response units—can you say FEMA? More on the American police here https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/10/02/american-police-force-national-force-aim/.

Americans, by and large are civil peaceful beings- but being told that airspace is being restricted or closed due to an invisible ash cloud, well that might just put the loonies over the edge.   

Would governors declare states of emergency calling out the national guard?  Ah, but the The John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007  later repealed by the Insurrection Act gives the President the ability to declare a public emergency and station the military anywhere in America and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities.  You may recall no one has rescinded the state of emergency from the false H1N1 pandemic.

When it snowed in D.C., the government for all intents and purposes shut down- would it again if the ash cloud is so prominent that it inhibits air travel and is caustic to breath?  As if we don’t already have enough fluoride and silica in our diets.  And, too much salt as so the nanny government, besides owning banks and car manufacturers is going to work with the food industry to gradually reduce sodium in everything from soup to nuts http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2010/04/20/US-planning-to-reduce-salt-in-food/UPI-37521271766209/  That’s what I call nutty!

At least Europe has some alternative transportation options by ferry or train, not so much in the States.  “Washington – including the president – is stalling on critical legislation that maps the way for getting people and goods from here to there: the transportation bill. The bill sets policy on roads, bridges, mass transit, and freight movement for six years. It was supposed to be reauthorized last year, but the White House discouraged that because it wanted to focus on health-care legislation.http://www.csmonitor.com/Commentary/the-monitors-view/2010/0419/Iceland-volcano-ash-cloud-At-least-Europe-has-a-backup-in-trains-ferries-buses

The BBC reports that there is ‘zero tolerance’ on ash. ” ‘No tolerance’ rule for volcanic ash” http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/8629609.stm Is there a tolerance level in Canada or the U.S.?  At least Iceland and Europe can rely on, ” The Nuclear Accident Model (NAME) was originally developed after the nuclear accident in 1986 at Chernobyl, which highlighted the need for a capability to predict the spread and deposition of radioactive material released into the atmosphere. The model has continued to be developed and is now applied to a wide range of atmospheric pollution problems, ranging from emergency responses to daily air-quality forecasts. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2010/04/19/ash-cloud-models-overrated-a-word-on-post-normal-science-by-dr-jerome-ravetz/

After the Haiti quake, the U.S.S. Comfort arrived, along with 10,000 U.S. Military personnel to offer a a peaceful restoration.  But, “As the U.S. military’s mission in Haiti draws to a close, about 1 million Haitians remain homeless, said the former top U.S. military commander in Haiti…The roughly 2,200 troops now in Haiti are expected to leave in June”  http://www.stripes.com/article.asp?section=104&article=69459

What’s the big rush to get our troops out of Haiti so fast? 

And, “The top military official in Iraq said the president plan for troop withdrawal is proceeding as scheduled.
 The Associated Press reports that Gen. Ray Odierno confirms that 45,000 soldiers will have left Iraq by the end of August unless a dramatic security concern arises in the area.”  http://www.s2smagazine.com/node/2792

There are 1,084,548 troops on active duty in the United States and its territories according to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deployments_of_the_United_States_Military Ironically we have no troops in Iceland as The Keflavik Naval Air Station was closed.  http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2006/03/16/AR2006031601846.html

Eyjafjallajokull volcano 20th of April 2010, am

“It is just skirting into the Newfoundland area over the next 12 to 18 hours,” Syvret told Reuters. “It doesn’t look as if it is going to get much further west than that, just on the coast and a little further inland.”  Newfoundland, on Canada’s Atlantic seaboard, is the closest part of North America to Iceland’s erupting Eyjafjallajokull volcano.http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE63I5OR20100419?loomia_ow=t0:s0:a49:g43:r1:c0.248206:b33070260:z0

It is unlikely that America will be thrown into chaos over this ash cloud. What catastrophe befalls us next is any one’s guess.  Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Nuclear Attack, Anthrax, Biological Weapons, an invasion by foreign troops or aliens? 

With a million troops awaiting action, in the meantime the least they could do is patrol the borders.

You can still watch the eruption through the clouds on both the Vodafon and Mila.is webcams. Vodaphon updates every 6 seconds. Also photos in ten minute increments at http://picasaweb.google.com/102175391233488315229.

 obama signs

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.

obama-bow-to-saudi-king

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/

 biocryst%20logo

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, https://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- https://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? 

Don’t even get us started on the Constitutional Repercussions of President Obama signing the U.N.’s Climate Treaty https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/10/17/us-sovereignty-ends-obama-signs-un-climate-change-treat/

american police force

BILLINGS, Mont. —AP-http://www.google.com/hostednews/ap/article/ALeqM5ifOx0LPKy5B_0KAyPHyNTEqdQz6QD9AM0VM80  The Two Rivers Detention Center was promoted as the largest economic development project in decades in the small town of Hardin when the jail was built two years ago. But it has been vacant ever since.”

There were no takers on the facility until recently when a company called the American Police Force signed a lease. “Problem is, no one’s heard of them, yet they’ve got tons of cash and guns with them and the Sheriff’s Department will cease to have jurisdiction as of the end of this October.” http://www.the-912-project.com/2009/09/30/heads-up-mt-you-are-the-front-line-against-american-security-force/

State legislatures have granted police powers to private licensed security firms for decades so that’s not so new, but I got to thinking about President Obama’s new law for Civilian National Security Force http://giveusliberty1776.blogspot.com/2009/09/hr-675-civilian-national-security-force.html ,http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h675/text .  Is the American Police Force is just a front for Blackwater?  http://www.americanpoliceforce.net/ and Alex Jones at  http://www.prisonplanet.com/exposed-american-police-force-is-a-blackwater-front-group.html  offer proof that APF is in fact a Blackwater Front Group. 

Xe Services, LLC
PO Box 1029
Moyock, NC 27958

Xe Services LLC is the new name of Blackwater USA. In addition, the U.S. Training Center contact page carries the exact same address.

PO Box 1029
Moyock, NC 27958

A domain registry check confirms that the U.S. Training Center website is registered to XE Services.  Pretty compelling proof  Mr. Jones!

From the http://www.americanpolicegroup.com/ web site:
American Police Force, dedicated security agency…extensive global network to provide local, regional, and national security solutions to the United States Government…services include highly sophisticated background checks, asset searches, undercover investigations both domestic & international, … Covers the equipment, operations, and individual combat skills essential for soldiers and others who must act as infantry. (emphasis mine) Essential for Army infantry leaders at the platoon and company level, Special Forces troops, Air Force security and patrol services, Marines, and other Army branches.

Would that include assisting Armed forces including the National Guard since a pandemic emergency as was declared over the H1N1 Swine Flu? 

The U.S. Training Center is run by Blackwater. Indeed, The U.S. Training Center website, can be accessed via Blackwater’s forwarding URL at http://www.blackwaterusa.com/ aka. http://www.ustraining.com/new/index.asp.

According to  The New York Times  http://www.nytimes.com/2009/02/14/us/14blackwater.html?_r=1, RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Blackwater Worldwide is abandoning the brand name that has been tarnished by its work in Iraq, settling on Xe (pronounced zee) as the new name for its family of two dozen businesses. Blackwater Lodge and Training Center, the subsidiary that conducts much of the company’s overseas operations and domestic training, has been renamed U.S. Training Center Inc., the company said Friday.

Xe or Zee, http://www.xecompany.com/ has a much improved and less aggressive image no longer showing Men In Black holding AK-47’s Mercenaries, but make no mistake, as the site says, “Man-made and natural disasters require an immediate robust response. The USTC and staff of former military and law enforcement professionals can provide the needed training and operational expertise to prepare security teams to effectively support state and federal emergency response units.” -emphasis mine.

Federal response units—can you say FEMA?

Excerpts from the site- Xe is supported by its own construction capability. With a team of electricians, plumbers, engineers….transport resources, including its own in-house travel agency, design and construction teams can be mobilized quickly and efficiently to where their services are needed within the United States….Xe is equipped and prepared to move cargo and people from anywhere in the world….offers an array of capabilities to transport freight and personnel…..outfitted with armored vehicles for safe transport and delivery…

For all intents and purposes we have an organization that exists on U.S. Soil with the capability and know how to wage war on American citizens.  The U.S. government contracted with them in Iraq and Afghanistan, why not here in America to quell the the citizen who seek transparency from The Obama Administration? 

Why would the U.S. Government allow this?  Putting on a legitimate face does not preclude XE, Blackwater, or The American Police Force from being a militia.  Could say China, Russia or anyone of a number of countries with enough money, hire them to carry out these tasks upon America?  While anti-government sentiment is on the rise with peaceful tea party gatherings, the rest of the world does not look to have a party, but would love to over throw the U.S.A.  Even the UN has stated that the U.S. dollar should no longer be the basket currency for the world. 

Rand police 

Now comes research described in this report, sponsored by the United States Army and conducted by the RAND Arroyo Center.-  The authors for a Stability Police Force (SPF) “containing 6,000 people — created in the U.S. Marshals Service and staffed by a “hybrid option,” in which SPF members are federal police officers seconded to federal, state, and local police agencies when not deployed.”  The pdf can be downloaded here http://chriskillz503.blogspot.com/2009/10/apf-mercs-are-fullfilling-rand.html

Last October 2008, According to reports out of top Chinese mainstream news outlets, the RAND Corporation also presented a proposal to the Pentagon lobbying  for a war to be started with a major foreign power in an attempt to stimulate the American economy and prevent a recession. 

RAND Lobbies Pentagon: Start War To Save U.S. Economy 301008top3

 sourced at – http://www.prisonplanet.com/rand-lobbies-pentagon-start-war-to-save-us-economy.html

RAND directors include Frank Charles Carlucci III, former Defense Secretary and Deputy Director of the CIA, Ronald L. Olson, Council on Foreign Relations luminary and former Secretary of Labor, and Carl Bildt, top Bilderberg member and other notables who purport to honor, serve America.

Putting on a legitimate face does not preclude XE, Blackwater, or The American Police Force from being a militia.

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?

As if we need more proof that our American government is becoming even more socialistic, main stream media is now offering proof of what readers here have already noted about the H1N1 Swine Flu.

“The worst-case scenarios percolate on the edges of thought: to help with law enforcement..” http://abcnews.go.com/Health/SwineFluNews/story?id=8437630  The source is ABC not FOX so it must be true, even the original report was released almost a month ago!  The latest press release issues the same unknowns and warnings from the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) releases report assessing H1N1 preparations.  

In the 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 

The case-fatality ratio (i.e., proportion of infected individuals who die as a result of the infection) appears to be similar to seasonal influenza—possibly on the order of 0.1 to 0.3 percent of medically attended cases (i.e., those infections requiring hospitalization or primary care), and perhaps 0.05 to 0.2 percent of all symptomatic cases, whether or not medical care is sought….

Then the report makes an about face possible prediction that-

By the end of 2009, 60 to 120 million Americans would have experienced symptomatic infection with 2009-H1N1; nearly 1 to 2 million would have been hospitalized, with about 150,000-300,000 cared for in ICUs; and somewhere between 30,000 and 90,000 people would have died, the majority of them under 50 years of age.

We might not know what the flu has in store and tracking it is cumbersome so these esteemed folks think that, “This may be accomplished through web-based or telephone-based surveys. (p 25)  Has the government not learned a lesson in asking you to report web sites to the White House that disagree with President Obama’s health and insurance reform policies? Survey says, yes I have the flu…knock, knock we’re coming to take you away?

Pg 45 outlines “an improbable prediction 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 [sic- love those big words!] during the time of the anticipated epidemic and to set plans in motion to reduce or remove such barriers in accord with the observed severity of the epidemic.” p 47. 

Curtailment of individual freedoms?  Seizure of essential commodities? Legal barriers, like The Constitution?

p 49 -We recommend that if the Secretary of DHHS declares a Public Health Emergency, the President consider issuing a Stafford Act declaration so that hospitals can more effectively triage and treat patients.  I am sorry but your credibility sucks as under section 319 of the Public Health Service Act0 the Emergency has already been declared in April 2009. http://www.hhs.gov/news/press/2009pres/04/20090426a.html

The Stafford Act 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. Alas,  the Stafford Act was renamed about 9 years ago into the Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000 http://frwebgate.access.gpo.gov/cgi-bin/getdoc.cgi?dbname=106_cong_public_laws&docid=f:publ390.106.pdf further expanding government power.

In July 09- The bi-partisan Disaster Response, Recovery, and Mitigation Enhancement Act of 2009 in the U.S. House of Representatives. http://disastersafety.typepad.com/disaster_safety_blog/2009/07/legislation-introduced-to-amend-stafford-act-.html H.R. 3377 legislation also would require the Citizen Corps program to educate and train citizens in emergency preparedness and mitigation techniques. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d111:h.r.03377: with the text here http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/C?c111:./temp/~c111GFQg2j.

Mitigation techniques from our civilian army? Seeing as of yet we do not have a citizen army” just as well trained and funded as our military, ” I’d be betting on the National Guard, The Marines and AK47’s showing up as in Katrina.

Sec 205 b addresses the ” Needs Assessment; Establishment of Criteria- Not later than 3 months after the date of enactment of this Act, the Administrator shall– 

    • (1) complete an assessment to determine the number of temporary housing units that FEMA needs to maintain in stock to respond appropriately to emergencies or major disasters occurring after the date of enactment of this Act.

Temporary housing in the event of an emergency?  Housing in Camps?  FEMA Camps- the ones with the wires facing in to keep you in?

The President’s highest priority is to keep the American people safe. He is committed to ensuring the United States is true to our values and ideals while also protecting the American people. The President is committed to securing the homeland against 21st century threats by preventing terrorist attacks and other threats against our homeland, preparing and planning for emergencies, and investing in strong response and recovery capabilities. We will help ensure that the Federal Government works with states and local governments, and the private sector as close partners in a national approach to prevention, mitigation, and response . http://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/homeland_security/  Makes me feel all warm and fuzzy!

U.S. Situation Update  http://www.cdc.gov/h1n1flu/update.htm

Total U.S. 2009 H1N1 Flu Hospitalizations and Deaths
(As of August 27, 2009, 4:00 PM ET)
Reporting States and Territories* Hospitalized Cases Deaths
52 8,843 556
*Includes the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

 

Long and short, you might get the flu, you might be forced into taking a vaccine, you might be mitigated into FEMA housing, etc.  You might be just fine.  Since it looks like your chances of living are pretty good, you might consider voting for someone other than Obama the next time around. 

BTW Mr. President, the homeland you refer to is called The United States of America and may God bless her.

“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. The proposal is awaiting final approval from Defense Secretary Robert Gates. The officials would not be identified because the proposal from U.S. Northern Command’s Gen. Victor Renuart has not been approved by the secretary.  The plan calls for military task forces to work in conjunction with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. There is no final decision on how the military effort would be manned, but one source said it would likely include personnel from all branches of the military.”http://edition.cnn.com/2009/US/07/28/military.swine.flu/

“The military, as they would for a natural disaster or other significant emergency situation, could provide support and fulfill any tasks that civilian authorities could not, such as air transport or testing of large numbers of viral samples from infected patients.” 

What exactly would require air transport?  People.  Dead people, sick people, people who refuse a vaccination?   

Where would the air transports go?  Remember the Federal Management Land Grab act that reduced access to huge chunks of America?  FEMA Camps?

We already have the local police, state police, federal police and soon the DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce Defense Directive 1404.10 (read  PDF ) promises exactly what President Obama said, “”We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”

Is this all leading to Martial Law in the event that we see the Swine Flu begin to fry more people than bacon?   https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/06/25/martial-law-under-public-health-emergency/

The last reported numbers of the A/H1N1 Swine Flu from the CDC was 43,771 confirmed cases of H1N1 infection and 302 deaths in the United States.  The CDC and WHO both announced they would no longer keep records. 

“Given that countries are no longer required to test and report individual cases, (to the WHO- World Health Org,)  the number of cases reported actually understates the real number of cases reported today July 27, 2009.”

WHO Regional Office for Africa (AFRO) 157 0
WHO Regional Office for the Americas (AMRO) 87965 707
WHO Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean (EMRO)  890 1
WHO Regional Office for Europe (EURO) 16556 34
WHO Regional OFfice for South-East Asia (SEARO) 7358 44
WHO Regional Office for the Western Pacific (WPRO) 21577 30
Grand Total 134503 816

sourced at http://www.who.int/csr/don/2009_07_27/en/index.html

816 deaths total?  300 or so in the U.S.? Even if the numbers were off by thousands, for a Pandemic- Swine Flu has been pretty tame, but that hasn’t put off our government from preparing to protecting her citizens.  The question is becomes, is the government protecting us from ourselves? 

Like Al Gore claimed he invented the Internet, the U.S. Navy claims it worked behind the scenes to identify one of the first cases in the U.S. http://blogs.sciencemag.org/scienceinsider/2009/04/behind-the-scen.html.

“Our expansion was largely a result of an initiative by the Department of Defense’s (DOD’s) Global Emerging Infectious System to intensify pandemic surveillance as a result of the avian influenza (H5N1) crisis. NHRC augmented existing febrile respiratory illness surveillance programs in military recruit trainees and ship-board populations and expanded into dependent populations in San Diego. Also, in a collaborative effort with the CDC, we developed surveillance on the Southern California-Mexico border, which was enhanced this year to deepen surveillance and augment diagnostic training of our Mexican collaborators via funding from the Department of State’s Biosecurity Engagement Program.”

Augment Mexican collaborators- the same one’s who kept Swine Flu a secret for weeks? 

You got that warm fuzzy feeling yet?

Could civil unrest and Martial Law really come to The  U.S. in light of the Flu Pandemic or some other catastrophe?

This ad comes to us from the folks at MTV from a few years ago.  Why MTV, and why purpose did the commercial have?  Certainly there are better means to educate society about the Holocaust than this. 

Are the producers trying to issue a sort of public service announcement in advance of H.R. 675?  http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h675/text  Sec. 1585b of the  bill would  amend Title 10 of US Code to extends to civilian employees of the Department of Defense the authority to execute warrants, make arrests, and carry firearms for any offense against the U.S.  Is this just another loophole to create more federal authority and a federal police force? 

Remember The Posse Comitatus Act? It is supposed to limit the powers of the federal government to use the military for law enforcement, but it has been abandoned  for all intents as we now have active duty troops stationed on our soil to defend us against each other.  Soldiers were so kind to even help out at the Boston Marathon.  Military deployment and collaboration with local law enforcement agents is now common place since incidents like Katrina,  with check and balances against corruption gone like the city of New Orleans was. 

The John Warner Defense Authorization Act of 2007 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/H.R._5122_(2006)   changed federal law so that a Governor of a state was  no longer the sole commander in chief of their state’s National Guard, a direct violation of Article I, Section 10 and Clause 3 of the Constitution. It also allowed the President to declare a public emergency and station the military anywhere in America and take control of state-based National Guard units without the consent of the governor or local authorities. It was repealed, but the Insurrection Act remains in its place amended to state:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insurrection_Act#Repeal_of_amendments:

The original wording of the Act required the conditions as worded in Paragraph (2), above, to be met as the result of

insurrection, domestic violence, unlawful combination, or conspiracy

The new wording of the Act, as amended, still requires the same conditions as worded in Paragraph (2), above, but those conditions could, after the changes, also be a result of

domestic violence has occurred to such an extent that the constituted authorities of the State or possession are incapable of maintaining public order.
natural disaster, epidemic, or other serious public health emergency, terrorist attack or incident, or other condition

Let me adjust my antenna. A Public Health Emergency?  As in WHO declaring a Pandemic and in the U.S. “Government officials have declared a public health emergency in connection with the swine flu outbreak that has killed dozens in Mexico and sickened 20 in the U.S., said the nation’s director of Homeland Security Sunday.” http://thisweekwithbarackobama.blogspot.com/2009/04/state-of-emergency-swine-flu-video.html

DoD Civilian Expeditionary Workforce Defense Directive 1404.10 (read  PDF ) promises exactly what President Obama said, “”We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.” http://directorblue.blogspot.com/2008/10/obama-plans-paramilitary-force-for.html

A new level of leadership emerged within the U.S. Army, with the June 5 promotion of Mr. Jim Scofield as the first Defense Intelligence Senior Level Special Advisor…” As part of the civilian personnel intelligence management system, he is equivalent to a brigadier general, so now you have to say ‘Mr.’ Scofield,” she said.”DISL are recognized leaders in their field and in their specialty. This position will allow him to be involved in planning and coordinating Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions and responsibilities not only for the Army, but theater-wide.” http://www.army.mil/-news/2009/06/09/22375-usarpac-civilian-workforce-climbs-as-scofield-is-promoted-to-disl/

Moving on up with expanded powers. Congrats.  There are a myriad of conspiracies just like this MTV video with Fema Trains ready to take non conformists away to Fema Camps. Alex Jones http://www.infowars.com/ has whole list of topics on the issue of citizen rights and the government taking away those rights.

Am I finally too old to not want my MTV anymore or just wise to the possibilities?  http://www.mtv.com/index.jhtml?extcmp=SEO_SSP_Y

Find the nearest FEMA camp near you.

femamaps

photo props http://snardfarker.ning.com/profiles/blogs/fema-camp-map.

60,ooo people are in evacuation zones.  Ten fixed-wing aircrafts and 15 helicopters are on the scene.  The governor has declared Santa Barbara, California to be in a state of emergency.  Limited power outages are being reported.  This is not FEMA in charge of a pandemic flu eruption, it is the Jesusita Fire, burning thousands of acres, destroying homes.http://www.countyofsb.org/ceo/oes0.aspx?id=2332 

Come rain or shine, your government and FEMA stand ready to help you in the event of disasters like hurricanes, fire, or flu! 

Two years before Katrina, in 2003, Congress appropriated money under the auspice of a goal of effective digital mapping of floodplains for 90 percent of the U.S. population by 2010.   20,000 communities appears to be at risk in The National Flood Insurance Program Community Status Book http://www.fema.gov/fema/csb.shtm.  A bonus point is awarded to the government, as the study funded aerial surveillance images of 20,000 communities.  The collection of the digital data that are used in GIS systems for supposedly creating new Flood Insurance Rate Maps can be found in detail at http://geospatial.edublogs.org/2009/03/26/united-states-fema-flood-plains-zones/fdnka 

H.R. 645 IH, `National Emergency Centers Establishment Act’, directs the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish national emergency centers on military installations, aka FEMA Camps.  If our soldiers are too busy fighting in Iraq or Afghanistan we could rely on H.R. 1388, The Give Act or The Serve America Act which has six versions before congress.  All versions outline required and eligible national service, aka national Civilian Community Corps programs,http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c111:H.R.1388, Section 10 – including opportunities for participation in emergency and disaster preparedness, relief, and recovery. http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/F?c111:6:./temp/~c111Dyc0uT:e634 

The Twentynine Palms Marine Corps Air Ground Combat Center in California, is the nation’s largest base and the principal U.S. training facility for Marines and sailors deployed to Afghanistan and Iraq. 30 Marines have been quarantined after one became the first U.S. serviceman known to have contracted the swine flu virus.  http://www.reuters.com/article/domesticNews/idUSTRE53T02920090430  If the flu virus spread to 8,000 soldiers at 29 Palms they would be rendered useless for pandemic assistance. Obama could rely upon the Civilian Community Corps or a militarized FEMA. Skip to my lou my darling, right over the National Guard.

29 Palms is also home of the alleged, “Would you shoot  an American Quiz?”  where Marines refused to answer if they would target American citizens for gun confiscation if ordered to do so.  http://www.knowthelies.com/?q=node/3925

Then there’s this little diddy.

TITLE:Emergency Assistance for Human Influenza Pandemic, Disaster Assistance Policy 9523.17
DATE:March 31, 2007
PURPOSE: Establish the types of emergency protective measures that are eligible under the Public Assistance Program during a Federal response to an outbreak of human influenza pandemic in the U.S. and its territories…  more at http://www.fema.gov/government/grant/pa/9523_17.shtmybe

Section IV-
A second wave of global spread should be anticipated within a year, based on past experience.
SectionVII
Management, control, and reduction of immediate threats to public health and safety.
Movement of supplies and persons.
Security forces, barricades and fencing, and warning devices.
Mass mortuary services.
Recovery and disposal of animal carcasses (except if another federal authority funds the activity – e.g., U.S. Department of Agriculture, Animal, Plant and Health Inspection Service provides for removal and disposal of livestock). What, like flu infected pigs, birds, or cows?

Fema also heads up the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP). Designed to protect the critical infrastructure and key resources (CI/KR) of the United States is essential to the Nation’s security, public health and safety, economic vitality, and way of life.  http://www.dhs.gov/xlibrary/assets/NIPP_Plan.pdf  

Maybe Elvis himself is working on a PATRIOT Act III or even Internet III.  Perhaps it would contain an amendment to overturn posse comitatus, then FEMA could be militarized and Obama wouldn’t  have to rely solely on paid volunteers who sign up for the national service program.  Unless of course they all have the flu as well.  What if America can not service its debt, the printing presses stop and our economy comes to a halt? Would FEMA maintain control in an economically collapsed, flu infected, fire torched, flood ravaged nation through a military dictatorship led by Obama? 

12.160Mhz website lists suspected FEMA “Concentration”  Camps  http://snardfarker.ning.com/profiles/blogs/list-of-active-fema.  Above Top Secret http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread24903/pg1  suggests these  locations as potential FEMA Camps. There is a whole shit load of Executive Orders that in theory could render the power of FEMA as absolute including these from http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread24903/pg1.

Sourced from lots of conspiracy spots, “The Rex 84 Program was established on the reasoning that if a “mass exodus” of illegal aliens crossed the Mexican/US border, they would be quickly rounded up and detained in detention centers by FEMA. Rex 84 allowed many military bases to be closed down and to be turned into prisons. Operation Cable Splicer and Garden Plot are the two sub programs which will be implemented once the Rex 84 program is initiated for its proper purpose. Garden Plot is the program to control the population. Cable Splicer is the program for an orderly takeover of the state and local governments by the federal government.”

Is the Swine Flu that originated in Mexico a test run for the Rex 84 Program? Is the most recent declared health emergency test of FEMA ability to execute and control? An official FEMA National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE 09) is scheduled for July 27 through July 31, 2009. NLE 09 will be the first major exercise conducted by the United States government that will focus exclusively on terrorism prevention and protection, as opposed to incident response and recovery.  http://www.fema.gov/media/fact_sheets/nle09.shtm

If you’re a victim of the pandemic flu you definitely need to be in isolation.   Off you go to camp.  Refuse a mandatory vaccination?  Off you go to camp.  Qualify as a Homeland Security Threat?  Off you go to camp.  A threat to national security by going to church, owning a gun, having more than 2.5 children?  Off you go. Conspiracy or factual evidence of collusion, Liberty for Life http://www.libertyforlife.com/jail-police/us-concentration_camp-locations.htm  continues to outlines some potential cases of off you go. 

While the flu pandemic for the time being seems to be subsiding who knows what lies ahead during future flu seasons.  Obama is gearing up for the possibility of issuing 3 flu shots- 2 for swine flu and 1 for the common flu. Is ordering new flu shots, not knowing the severity of the Swine Flu’s illness or its vaccine efficacy part of Operation Garden Plot leaving an opening for FEMA to have more control? Is Obama heeding the Fema warning with good conscience that, “A second wave of global spread should be anticipated within a year, based on past experience?”

Does FEMA has the authority to maintain order and create chaos in and of itself?  With the risk of flood, flu, fire, hurricanes, global warming, a declining economy- one might decide to have a few drinks to celebrate that America for all her faults, is still the best country in the world.  Oh hell, click here to enlarge : a map showing % of binge drinkers (adults having five or more drinks on one occasion). courtesy if the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System GIS data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website. http://geospatial.edublogs.org/2009/04/13/united-states-cdc-behavioral-risk-factor-surveillance-system-brfss/  .

The U.S. Constitution has apparently been suspended in parts of America in an effort to protect its borders from everything from illegal immigration to terrorists.  Rightful to protect its border, except that the border has been seemingly redefined to include a 100 mile wide strip that goes around the entire “external boundary” of the entire United States.

“The extraordinary authority that the U.S. government possesses at its borders is spilling into regular American streets, affecting large populations of its citizens. Nearly two-thirds of the entire population of the country now lives within 100 miles of the U.S. land and coastal borders, an area that has been designated by the government as a “Constitution Free Zone”.  http://www.naturalnews.com/024734.html  and posted similarly at  http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/10/22/163652/37/734/638977

Could all liberties are put aside if you are rightly or wrongly id’s as having done something wrong?  Would there will be no guarantee of The Bill of Rights protection, no referring to case law and no lawyers to argue on your behalf? 

The ACLU lays claim that “Border Patrol agents are not remaining confined to a border security purpose.”  http://www.aclu.org/privacy/37293res20081022.html and it’s blog http://blog.aclu.org/?s=constitution+free+zone says that “U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is allowed to exercise extraordinary authority that would not normally be permitted under the Constitution.

(ATS) traveler risk assessment program, identity and tracking systems such as electronic (RFID) passports, the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative (WHTI),  Secure Border Initiative Network (SBINet) or “virtual border fence” and unmanned aerial vehicles (aka “drone aircraft”) all monitor movement.   

The Department of Homeland Security is in itself, necessary.  Agents of the FBI, CIA, NSA must cooperate to protect the homeland, but using the word ‘homeland’ outside of a historical discussion of Germany has allowed law enforcement authorities access to broad powers and is just a creepy reminder of Gestapo tactics.  To assume an abuse of power is fear mongering, but fair minded caution must be exercised.  The Patriot Act, Military Commissions Act, and FISA-Protect America Act were enacted post 9-11 for good reason and have been tweaked numerous times to keep America Safe with as little intrusion as possible.

It becomes paramount that we question how secure the technology is in foreign countries and in our own country.  http://electronicintifada.net/v2/article9930.shtml  The Shadow Factory: The Ultra-Secret NSA from 9/11 to the Eavesdropping on America author James Bamford writes about how spying on American citizens has been outsourced to companies closely linked to Israel’s intelligence services. “With unrivaled access to sources and documents, Bamford details how the agency has conducted domestic surveillance without court approval, and he frames it in the context of the NSA’s ongoing hunt for information about today’s elusive enemies. http://www.amazon.com/Shadow-Factory-Ultra-Secret-Eavesdropping-America/dp/0385521324

The Department of Homeland Security “claims that data gathered for law enforcement purposes will be “in compliance with privacy and civil liberties laws and policies of the United States,” the GAO found that “by broadly sharing information with non-federal users, who are not bound by the Privacy Act, personal information could be at risk of being used in ways not specified when it was originally collected.” Considering that some 70% of U.S. intelligence assets are employees of private security and defense contractors, NAO is a civil liberties disaster waiting to happen.” http://www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=viewArticle&code=BUR20081109&articleId=10864

The far side would have us believe that we have a ruling oligarchy that professes an agenda of militarism, corporatism, and socialism that encroaches itself upon citizens at the expense of the general population with more domestic control and intimidation.  Maybe the far isn’t so far off? Obama has proposed a mandatory civilian force http://www.rightpundits.com/?p=2318 with equal funding to the military which is already on active duty on our soil http://www.armytimes.com/news/2008/09/army_homeland_090708w/, Charles Rangle has a Draft Bill just lying in wait http://www.talkleft.com/story/2006/11/19/152217/04  , “The Bailout” has the government owning banks and Obama’s policies in waiting have been compared to Marxism. http://louisproyect.wordpress.com/2008/10/01/are-bailouts-marxist/

For now, we will wait to see what decisions Obama makes to shield our country from danger and protect her citizens.  “Let’s be clear here and shed whatever illusions one may have about the outcome of last Tuesday’s election. Despite the overwhelming rejection of the Bush administration and their surrogates by the American people, the incoming Obama administration will pay lip-service to civil liberties and the rule of law. This however, will amount to no more than a better public relations campaign, image management and product roll-out.

For now though our Bill of Rights are safe.  In an all too plausible court case, The Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision narrowly “ruled to uphold the Bill of Rights, the very tenets upon which American society is based. “After carefully considering the relevance of the 10 inviolable rights that comprise the ideological foundation on which our nation is built, the court finds that these basic freedoms remain important for the time being, and should not be overturned,” read the majority opinion authored by Justice Anthony Kennedy, who cast the tie-breaking vote. “Until such time as it can be definitively proven that citizens no longer require the protections provided by the Bill of Rights, it shall remain the principal legal guidance for the United States of America.” The Supreme Court’s latest decision comes on the heels of last month’s 6-3 ruling to abolish the pursuit of happiness from the three inalienable rights guaranteed by the Declaration of Independence. http://www.theonion.com/content/news_briefs/supreme_court_upholds_bill?utm_source=onion_rss_daily   Kudos to Justice Anthony Kennedy for saving The Bill of Rights and shame, shame, shame on those Justices who sought not to protect the Bill of Rights and who did solemnly swear to uphold those rights. From Wiki-  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oath_of_office#Federal_judicial_oaths

For readers are not familiar with The Onion, the Supreme Court Ruling is a satire and did not occur.  No Court has had issue with the Constitution Free Zone, yet.  When standing behind, beside or in front of the ACLU, keep in mind it may not stand up to protect all of The Bill of Rights either, “ACLU doesn’t mean all of the original 10 amendments because its policy No. 47 says, “Except for lawful police and military purposes, the possession of weapons by individuals is not constitutionally protected,” thereby ignoring the Second Amendment.”  http://www.stoptheaclu.com/archives/2008/09/06/aclu-very-selective-in-upholding-bill-of-rights/

Defending our borders, The U.S. Constitution and our privacy laws is a balancing act that will require Obama’s political vision be clear and forthright through out his entire Presidency.   Good luck with that theory of  a President being forthright though. Obama himself has barred the public from seeing his birth certificate, college transcripts, medical background, etc., so I’d say Obama’s privacy has been protected pretty dang well here in America.

Russian Sub Put Together Like Humpty Dumpty

Over 20 people have been killed after a firefighting system went off during sea trials on board the Nerpa, a nuclear submarine in Russia’s Pacific Fleet. The sub was on a test run in the Sea of Japan with 208 people aboard 81 of whom were servicemen. Submariners and ship builders were killed, the AP reports.

It appears that Russia was leasing Akula II class boats to India recently and I believe it might be this one http://en.rian.ru/russia/20081027/117976941.html provided by the Russian News Agency, RAI Novosti. 

“The construction of the Akula II class Nerpa nuclear attack submarine started in 1991 but has been suspended for over a decade due to lack of funding. Akula II class vessels are considered the quietest and deadliest of Russian nuclear-powered attack submarines. The submarine, built under a contract with the Russian Defense Ministry, has been moved from the shipyard in Komsomolsk-on-Amur to a maintenance facility in the Primorye Territory and fitted with all necessary equipment. At present it is undergoing sea trials,” a spokesman for the shipyard told RIA Novosti. Indian media have reported on various occasions that the construction of the submarine was partially financed by the Indian government. India has reportedly paid $650 million for a 10-year lease of the 12,000-ton submarine.  Nerpa is expected to join the Indian navy under the designation INS Chakra in the second half of 2009.”

Construction on this hunk of steel was halted for 16 years for lack of funding and then put back together again like Humpty Dumpty.  http://en.rian.ru/russia/20081027/117976941.html  I am reminded of, why did the Kursk sink? http://www.wps.ru/en/pp/kursk/2002/03/19/1.html The three torpedoes aboard the Kursk had a storage time of which, at the depot had elapsed and detonated early.  Sound Familiar? 

In 2003, eleven people died on a Russian sub being taken out of service sank in the Barents Sea. Even with this new failure, Russia has seen success. From SEVEROMORSK, October 11 (RIA Novosti) – A Russian submarine has for the first time test launched the Sineva ballistic missile to its maximum range from the Barents Sea to an equatorial part of the Pacific Ocean.  The exercise drills involved more than 5,000 military personnel, eight surface ships and five submarines.  “The RSM-54 Sineva (NATO designation SS-N-23 Skiff) is a third-generation liquid-propellant intercontinental ballistic missile that entered service with the Russian Navy in July 2007. It has a maximum range of 8,300 km (5,200 miles) and can carry four or 10 nuclear warheads. http://en.rian.ru/russia/20081011/117682147.html

This serious naval accident and other SNAFUs like this, only remind us how unstable nuclear warhead missiles are in the hands of the Russians.  Had the explosion resulted in the launch of a nuclear torpedo, millions of people could be dead, accidentally.   This “mishap” comes as Russia is trying to restore it’s reputation and demonstrate it’s over all military prowess while Americans have elected a President Obama who projects a decrease in military spending.  https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2008/10/22/obama-demilitarizes-while-russia-modernizes-missiles/

Russia has been holding joint naval exercises with close U.S. neighbor Venezuela, snubbing America’s Monroe Doctrine http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monroe_Doctrine  that was used symbolically when the Soviet Union began building missile launch sites in Cuba.

“Russia displayed its military strength in the Mediterranean yesterday after warships heading to Venezuela passed through the Strait of Gibraltar in the second deployment of Russian naval vessels in the waterway since the Cold War. The nuclear-powered missile cruiser Peter the Great, accompanied by the Admiral Chabanenko, an anti-submarine destroyer, as well as a reconnaissance vessel and a support ship, are destined for a maritime exercise with the Venezuelan navy.” Russia has also moved to intensify contacts with Venezuela, Cuba and other Latin American countries and has signed weapons contracts worth more than $4 billion with Venezuela since 2005 to supply fighter jets, helicopters and 100,000 Kalashnikov AK47 assault rifles. http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/europe/article4887728.ece

http://www.mnweekly.ru/news/20080926/55348681.html Moscow News outlines Russia’s display of its naval might at America’s doorstep, but notes that the ” Russian Navy’s state will not improve as a result of Moscow’s modified policies. Hopefully, the government will soon start restoring and rearming the Navy because any show of strength will otherwise prove ineffective.” 

No one will accuse President Obama of overbearing American supremacy while he reduces America’s might and increases his proposed “civilian national security force.”  Obama pledged: “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.”  Obama’s selection of Emanuel, in his book, The Plan: Big Ideas for America, sketches out the same idea on how to “fight against the spread of evil and totalitarianism.” … by expanding the U.S. army by 100,000 more troops,” Emanuel suggests “we must protect our homeland and civil liberties by creating a new domestic counter terrorism force like Britain’s MI5.”

Charles Rangel’s National Service Act,   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_National_Service_Act which is languishing before Congress, provides for a universal draft with two years of service for virtually all persons aged 18-42, with no deferment for college. The purpose of Rangel’s bill is seems to reflect Obama’s desires:

“To require all persons in the United States between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform national service, either as a member of the uniformed services or in civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security . . . .”

Civilian service described in the bill (sec 102(b)):

a civilian capacity that, as determined by the President, promotes the national defense, including national or community service and service related to homeland security.

 

In more anti-military, environmental whacko, tree hugging jurisprudence, comes this article from http://www.ibdeditorials.com/IBDArticles.aspx?id=284688883235757 ,  A federal court has restricted the Navy’s use of sonar to defend America. Never mind that missiles fired from enemy submarines will harm the environment more than the sonar used to detect them. The Chinese are adding 2.5 new subs each year to their fleet, and former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld says the Chinese may have more subs than we do within a decade.

In the National 3:00 am call that we heard about from Hillary Clinton and others during the pre-election banter, comes this portrayal from the Department of Defense:

“This is the National Military Command Center.  We have detected the launches of two ballistic missiles out of Iran with projected impact in New York in less than 25 minutes.  Iranian President says he did not order this, it was done by a small radical group which explains our very limited indications and warning.  Iranian strategic and regional missile forces have now been ordered to full alert in anticipation of U.S. retaliation.  We have notified state and local authorities and are notifying allied governments. 

Mr. President, what are your instructions?”
