Posts Tagged ‘Pandemic Response Bill’

The Department of The Navy under the Department of Defense command, Pandemic Influenza Policy is now available for your perusal.  While we can not confirm it’s authenticity, there is a signature from Sam J. Locklear III, Vice Admiral.  Sourced at http://thepowerhour.org/news4/opnav-3500-41.pdf  Stamped and dated September 18, 2009.

The Navy Website tracking the flu for Navy personnel is located at http://www.nmcphc.med.navy.mil/downloads/prevmed/NDRSiReportingUpdate_14Sept09.pdf.  The Navy is battle ready, with only a few reported cases of the flu.

All in all, the H1N1 Swine Influenza appears to be mild.  We pray it is a fear pandemic, rather than a deadly one requiring military intervention that is excerpted here from the Navy report:

 

(5) United States Government (USG) stages are trigger

points that reflect geography driven triggers tied to when

potential Federal responses will take effect. 

 

 (3) Key security concerns that would arise from the

political, social, and economic instabilities as discussed above

include opportunistic aggression, opportunities for violent

extremists to acquire weapons of mass destruction, reduced

partner capacity during and after an influenza pandemic,

instability resulting from a humanitarian disaster. and

decreased production and distribution of essential commodities.

The prevalence of an influenza pandemic coupled with political,

social, and economic instability may result in reduced security

capabilities, providing an opportunity for international

military conflict, increased terrorist activity, internal

unrest, political and/or economic collapse, humanitarian crises,

and dramatic social change.

 

 (10)  A layered mix of voluntary and mandatory  

 individual. unit, and installation-based public health measures,

such as limiting public gatherings, closing schools, social

distancing, personal hygiene measures, and masking can limit

transmission and reduce illness and death if implemented before

or at the onset of the event. Quarantine, isolation, and other

movement restrictions are essential for a successful containment

operation…..

 “Add to the list the deployment of combat-hardened troops in the U.S. and numerous “exercises” for “emergency preparedness” and we have the finishing touches on a police state ready to be unleashed provided the appropriate staged terror attack or — more likely — during the coming unrest in response to the unraveling economy.   Homeland security is officially defined by the National Strategy for Homeland Security as “a concerted national effort to prevent terrorist attacks within the United States, reduce America’s vulnerability to terrorism, and minimize the damage and recover from attacks that do occur.” It has superseded that mission.- From, Pittsburgh- Beta Test for A Police Statehttp://www.infowars.com/pittsburgh-beta-test-for-a-police-state/

quarantine1

With a supposed second wave of the H1N1 Swine Flu projected to hit thousands of citizens in the U.S., states are busy setting up new laws for quarantine and restraint even though the CDC has stated that Swine Flu symptoms for the most part, are no worse than the seasonal flu . Florida and Iowa have set up quarantine documents and detention orders here https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/09/04/swine-flu-quarantine-detention-order/.

The 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 and elaborated upon here- https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/09/02/swine-flu-killing-constitution/.

In April of 2009, http://www.cbsnews.com/blogs/2009/04/28/politics/politicalhotsheet/entry4975598.shtml reported that is was The Department of Justice that has the established legal federal authority pertaining to the implementation of a quarantine and enforcement of quarantines of U.S. Citizens. Under approval from Health and Human Services, the authority to issue quarantines goes to the U.S. Surgeon General. http://www.surgeongeneral.gov/

The acting Surgeon General since October 2007 is Rear Admiral Steven K. Galson, M.D., M.P.H. http://www.surgeongeneral.gov/about/biographies/biosg.html While President Obama has been busy skirting constitutional law in the appointment of Czars, The United States has had no official Surgeon General for two years.

With the power to render millions of U.S. Citizens into quarantine, would the power then not be reserved for the President Obama himself? So who, and what laws allow for quarantine of individuals?

President Bush added “novel” forms of influenza with the potential to create pandemics in Executive Order 13375 outlined here. http://edocket.access.gpo.gov/2005/pdf/05-6907.pdf The document says- ‘‘(c) Influenza caused by novel or reemergent influenza viruses that are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic.’’

Anyone violating a quarantine order can be punished by a $250,000 fine and a one year prison term.

Four years ago in November of 2005, The Bush administration released the National Strategy for Pandemic Influenza providing an outline for coordination among federal agencies, the stockpiling and distribution of vaccines and anti-viral drugs, and, if necessary, government-imposed quarantines and limitations on gatherings. A review of http://homelandsecurity.tamu.edu/framework/special-issues-hurricane-katrina-1/national-strategy-for-pandemic-influenza/ with the electronic version removed from the web by the Obama administration
http://www.whitehouse.gov/homeland/nspi.pdf.

In January 2007, Congressional Research Service authored, “CRS Report for Congress: Federal and State Quarantine and Isolation Authority.” highlighted here http://homelandsecurity.tamu.edu/framework/special-issues-hurricane-katrina-1/crs-report-for-congress-federal-and-state-quarantine-and-isolation-authority.html/

This report compiled by the Congressional Research Service provides a comprehensive overview of federal and state public health laws, specifically those that relate to the quarantine of individuals. Additionally, the report undertakes discussion of constitutional issues and questions concerning individual liberties that are raised in a quarantine situation. The Commerce Clause is clear that authority is given to the federal government to prescribe quarantine, which leaves state and local governments responsible for controlling the spread of threatening diseases within their jurisdictions. http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/RL33201.pdf

Federal and State Quarantine and Isolation Authority-

Under section 361 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act, 42 U.S.C. § 264, the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) has the authority to make and enforce regulations necessary “to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of communicable diseases from foreign countries into the States or possessions. The PHS Act and related statutes also authorize measures to aid or enforce a quarantine in the event of a public health emergency

The Model State Emergency Health Powers Act (the Model Act) provides a comprehensive framework for state emergency health powers, including statutory authority for quarantine 62 and isolation.63 Section 604 of the Model Act authorizes the quarantine or isolation of an individual or groups of individuals during a public health emergency

Federal quarantine authority derives from the Commerce Clause, which states that Congress shall have the power “(t)o regulate Commerce with foreign Nations,and among the several States

The President could use the Insurrection Act, now titled “Enforcement of the Laws to Restore Public Order,” to enforce health measures in the event that civil officials were overwhelmed during a pandemic and unable to enforce those laws

The Posse Comitatus Act does not apply to the National Guard unless it is employed in federal service as a reserve force of the armed forces. If the National Guard is called up to enforce U.S. laws, however, it is not subject to the Posse Comitatus Act.

The PHS Act, Model Act, Posse Comitatus Act and the Insurrection Act are on the legal books in part, to provide a means of quarantine. From Massachusetts’s attempt to fully amend its quarantine laws, new laws are in conference to enhance government authority and reduce your individual freedoms.

H.R. 675. http://www.opencongress.org/bill/111-h675/text Sec. 1585b of the bill would amend Title 10 of US Code to extend 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 to assist in the means of executing quarantines? Previously posted at https://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/06/25/martial-law-under-public-health-emergency/

The House passed legislation on Friday to head off a government shutdown next week by temporarily extending spending on most federal programs at current levels.http://www.nytimes.com/2009/09/26/us/politics/26cong.html?_r=1 While America is going out of business, the business of quarantine, confinement is apparently not being affected.

Gates is being asked to sign a so-called “execution order” that would authorize the military to begin to conduct the detailed planning to execute a proposed plan to establish regional teams of military personnel to assist civilian authorities in the event of a significant outbreak of the H1N1 virus this fall. http://edition.cnn.com/2009/US/07/28/military.swine.flu/ and herehttps://ahrcanum.wordpress.com/2009/07/29/military-prepares-swine-flu-pandemic-pandemonium-w-fema/

In the first known official quarantine in the U.S – A federal prison in Memphis has been quarantined because of an outbreak of Swine Flu. United States Attorney Lawrence J. Laurenzi says in the document, prisoners are not allowed to leave FCI Memphis for court appearances because of the quarantine. Laurenzi said, “The United States Marshall’s Service has advised that the facility will reassess the situation on September 21, 2009.”http://www.myeyewitnessnews.com/news/local/story/Federal-Prison-Under-Swine-Flu-Quarantine-in/2BAXeC_YAUqe1TMXXxlskQ.cspx

Prison officials have not released any information about the situation at this time.

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?
