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/

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.

WHOMap_20090727

“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

unclesamwarPardon me, but wake the fu(k up.  We are at war and the Obama Administration is busy signing tobacco legislation giving the government control over yet another industry.  Arggh.

In an interview broadcast on Monday evening by CBS, Mr. Obama said: “This administration – and our military – is fully prepared for any contingencies.” 

The North Korean regime said last week that it could fire a missile toward Hawaii on or shortly after July 4, which is U.S. Independence Day. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/barackobama/5600854/Barack-Obama-US-fully-prepared-for-North-Korea-missile-launch.html

Unacceptable fireworks, to say the least.  North Korea test-fired a similar long-range missile on July 4, 2000 but it failed just seconds after liftoff.

The Homeland Security Advisory System is designed to guide our protective measures when specific information to a particular sector or geographic region is received.  It remains at high or orange with two more levels to go until the shit would really hit the fan. Don’t you feel secure?  http://www.dhs.gov/xinfoshare/programs/Copy_of_press_release_0046.shtm  Meanwhile a flu pandemic has been declared by WHO .

What does it take to raise the threat level in the U.S.? North Korea is ready to launch a missile toward Hawaii or Alaska, Iran is out of control, Swine Flu is spreading with the UK Telegraph reporting half the population could be infected and yet,  our threat level remains the same.  This isn’t Halloween and Orange should not be the flavor of the day for American’s safety.

22 June 2009 07:00 GMT, the breakdown of the number of laboratory-confirmed cases is given in the following table and map from http://www.pandemicflu.gov/ updated today shows more than 52,000 cases with nearly half of them occurring in the U.S.  http://sharing.govdelivery.com/bulletins/GD/USHHS-7BCC3.  A report from Canada has the total confirmed cases at 6,457. http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2009-06/23/content_11586485.htm

Borders open, business as usual for most except in Hawaii where the deployment of Theatre High Altitude Area Defense- http://www.army-technology.com/projects/thaad/  weaponry for “support” in case of a North Korean launch, is somewhere out to sea.  Yeah, that’s business as usual. No reason for a threat level increase?

THAAD weapons, coupled with a radar system nearby, are designed to shoot down ballistic missiles.  Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD), formerly Theater High Altitude Area Defense, is a United States Army project to develop a system to shoot down short- and medium-range ballistic missiles using a hit-to-kill approach. The missile carries no warhead but relies on the kinetic energy of the impact. THAAD was designed to hit Scuds and similar weapons, but also has a limited capability against ICBMs. http://chrisabraham.com/2009/06/21/links-for-2009-06-21/ What if North Korea’s missile has a nuclear war head on it?  One might shoot it down, but does the nuclear warhead explode anyways killing millions in radio active poison?

Ground-based defenses in the state of Alaska are also ready, Mr Gates said in The Telegraph article.  Meanwhile, a US navy destroyer, the John S. McCain, has been tracking a North Korean ship that has been previously linked to illicit missile-related cargo, according to US defense officials. 

State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said about North Korea last week, “We will be continuing to do everything we can to really put pressure on their military capability”, and “if there are miscalculations, they will be by the other side, he emphasized:”I think that’s why we are concerned about the North Korea provocations, that at some point they might, in fact, do something intentionally or unintentionally that sparks a larger crisis.””That is why,” he added, “we have repeatedly condemned the actions that they’ve taken as being irresponsible, provocative, but also dangerous.”http://www.politicsdaily.com/2009/06/22/nearly-60-years-after-the-war-north-korea-still-playing-danger/

Well thanks for condemning the actions of a rogue government.  I feel so much better. And O- say it isn’t so, ” The Obama administration cut funding for missile interceptors scheduled to be deployed. Rep. Mike Turner (R-OH), the ranking member of the Committee’s Strategic Forces Subcommittee, offered an amendment to restore $120 million in funding to allow the Department of Defense to continue fielding 44 interceptors and complete construction of Missile Field 2 in Alaska.” http://pajamasmedia.com/blog/under-the-radar-dems-inexplicably-block-missile-defense/

Denied by House Democrats.

What am I doing about it?  Assuming there are no miscalculations and there is enough money to blast North Korea’s weapon- we are praying, drinking, swimming….enjoying the freedoms afforded to me that so many have died for.  Smoke ’em while you got em. 

Oh yeah, we’re washing our hands to avoid the flu- as if it matters.

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/  .

Cheers anyways. If your not ready to imbibe ck out The National Map Seamless Server for a unique look at America.   http://seamless.usgs.gov/website/seamless/viewer.htm
