CDC and the march towards Martial Law – why we have much to fear

UPDATE: Here we go Ebola patients fly around at will, as for us, not so much.

Dallas County Commissioners will hold a special meeting Thursday to declare a disaster over “the potential for widespread or severe damage, injury, loss or threat of life resulting from the Ebola virus.”

Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins said Dallas County Medical Director Dr. Christopher Perkins will sign a control order that will follow the minimum guidelines outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, blocking those being monitored for Ebola symptoms from using public transportation, including buses and airliners.

Back to my post:

Try as I may, apparently the so-called “memo” “giving authority” to quarantine U.S. troops for 21 days with explicit details could not be found as reported by CNN. I was interested in reading the “precise procedures.” Why? As we careen down the path towards martial law, and we are doing just that as posted: Martial Law declared in Connecticut over Ebola, Civil Rights suspended indefinitely Will the CDC activate emergency measures with Ebola outbreak? For those who insist that our tin foil is exploding on top of our heads, let’s look at facts before judgement:

I encourage everyone to look at the Heritage Foundation link regarding Model State Emergency Health Powers Act.. The Forbes link below is not from the tin foil crowd as well. Here we go:

“Quarantine is used to separate and restrict the movement of well persons who may have been exposed to a communicable disease to see if they become ill. These people may have been exposed to a disease and do not know it, or they may have the disease butdo not show symptoms,” states the CDC.

Quarantine can also help limit the spread of communicable disease.

Last month, former FDA official Scott Gottlieb, M.D. wrote in Forbes that the CDC will invoke powers to “hold a healthy person against his will” in the event of an Ebola outbreak, warning that the feds may assume “too much jurisdiction to detain people involuntarily,” leading to “spooky scenarios where people could be detained for long periods, merely on a suspicion they might have been exposed to some pathogen. And forced to submit to certain medical interventions to gain their freedom.”

An executive order signed by President Obama at the end of July also allows for the “apprehension, detention, or conditional release of individuals to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of suspected communicable diseases.”

The executive order, titled Revised List of Quarantinable Communicable Diseases, amends executive order 13295, passed by George W. Bush in April 2003, which allows for the, “apprehension, detention, or conditional release of individuals to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of suspected communicable diseases.”

The amendment signed by Obama replaces subsection (b) of the original Bush executive order which referred only to SARS.

In addition, under the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act, public health authorities and governors would be given expanded police powers to seize control of communications devices, public and private property, as well as a host of other draconian measures in the event of a public health emergency.

Describing the legislation as a “threat to fundamental rights,” the Heritage Foundation summarized a list of ways the law would be applied in the event of a public health emergency being declared.When the legislation was introduced, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons warned that it “could turn governors into dictators.” (And that is what has just happened in Connecticut)

U.S. Military Commanders Will Be Able To Quarantine Troops For 21 Days For Ebola Exposure

Washington (CNN) In an unprecedented move to protect U.S. troops that might be exposed to Ebola, U.S. military commanders are being given the authority to quarantine troops for 21 days at a Defense Department facility where they will be monitored for signs of the disease and treated if they do contract the virus, a Defense Department memo explained.

The memo, which was obtained by CNN, spells out the details of the military’s plan for the first time.
It does not reveal the location of the facility, but one U.S. official said it may be a site in the Washington, D.C. area. The quarantine will apply to troops evacuated from West Africa, if it is determined they have an elevated risk of exposure to Ebola.

The October 10 memo spells out precise procedures for monitoring troops’ exposure and how any problems will be dealt with.

Commanders also will be given the authority to isolate their entire unit in the region for the final 10 days of a deployment if necessary. All troops will be monitored for 21 days after returning from the mission, the memo says.

Obama attended Intelligence Daily Briefings only 42 percent of the time UPDATE

UPDATE:  and more over at Breitbart

STATE DEPT. ON OBAMA INTEL BRIEFINGS: ‘HE RECEIVES THOSE WHENEVER HE CAN’

When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared.

“Well, I have no validation of those statistics,” said Psaki. “There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can.”

Back to the post:

It was clear that Obama had little interest in the nuts and bolts of governing when his signature piece of legislation, Obamacare had a disastrous rollout. That certainly was a “tell.” One would think he would have inquired at some point how things were going. So the fact that Obama may look at his “Daily Briefing” via IPAD if his golf and fund-raising doesn’t get in the way should not be a surprise either. Since our security is the paramount job of President, that fact that he would not be interested in raising questions regarding the briefings should be alarming to say the least. So here we go.

Ultimately, as ABC News reported, the White House did not directly dispute the GAI’s numbers but instead said Obama prefers to read his PDB on his iPad instead of receiving the all-important live, in-person briefings.

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI)report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014.

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second.

The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at the feet of his Director of National Intelligence James Clapper.

“I think our head of the intelligence community, Jim Clapper, has acknowledged that I think they underestimated what had been taking place in Syria,” said Obama.

“Either the president doesn’t read the intelligence he’s getting or he’s bullshitting,” a former senior Pentagon official “who worked closely on the threat posed by Sunni jihadists in Syria and Iraq” told the Daily Beast.

Now, with ISIS controlling over 35,000 square miles of territory in its widening caliphate in Iraq and Syria, and with Obama pointing fingers at his own Director of National Intelligence James Clapper for the rise of ISIS, the question remains whether a 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings is good enough for most Americans.

Biden: ‘Mitt Romney wants to go to war in Syria’

Tell me, what’s the plan Mr. President?  A few clips of famous sayings by our Community Organizer and good ole Joe from the past. The last one has humor. What more is there to say regarding his latest misadventure that has another bombing without a plan.

Mitt Romney Wants To Go To War With Syria :Joe Biden
During the Obama campaign for reelection Joe Biden pushed Mitt Romney’s desire to go to war with Syria. Now the Obama Administration is attacking Syria. 

This 2007 excerpt of an interview with then Vice Presidential candidate Joe Biden shows him arguing why he would seek to impeach then President Bush if he were to take military action against Iran without congressional approval. The same goes for Obama, who also made a similar statement back then. Now, they are using the same arguments Bush made to justify any attacks against Iraq and Iran to drop “freedom” bombs on Syria.

 

Flashback – Obama: Iran, Syria will help stabilize Iraq, & the region, Presidential debate ’07;

 

Published on Oct 23, 2012

During the Presidential debate on Monday, Barack Obama resorted to his usual style of rhetoric to evade scrutiny of his disastrous policies on Iran and Syria. However, he can’t hide the fact, that from day one, ever since he rose to national prominence, he has sought to befriend the Syrian and Iranian regimes, despite their atrocious and despicable nature.

The President’s voice was nowhere to be heard, in 2009, during the post election demonstrations in Iran, much to the chagrin of the Iranian protesters. And, despite his claims to the contrary, Obama sent two letters to the Supreme leader of Iran, in which he made some shocking concessions and also offered to conduct negotiations with the despotic regime.

In 2010, Obama returned the U.S. ambassador to Syria; the ambassador had been recalled by President Bush after the assassination of Lebanese Prime Minister Rafic Harri.

Moreover, in July of 2009, the Obama administration announced a decision to ease sanctions on Syria.

And who can forget Obama’s incredibly ridiculous statement, during the Democratic Presidential debate, in 2007, when he was asked if he’d be willing to negotiate with the leaders of Iran, Syria etc.

Obama replied: “I think that it is a disgrace that we have not spoken to them.We’ve been talking about Iraq — one of the first things that I would do in terms of moving a diplomatic effort in the region forward is to send a signal that we need to talk to Iran and Syria because they’re going to have responsibilities if Iraq collapses. They have been acting irresponsibly up until this point. But if we tell them that we are not going to be a permanent occupying force, we are in a position to say that they are going to have to carry some weight, in terms of stabilizing the region.”

The Iranian and Syrian regimes “are going to have to carry some weight, in terms of stabilizing” Iraq and the region??? Are you kidding me?

Unbelievable!

And, let’s not forget some of Joe Biden’s preposterous statements on Iran.

In October 2001, shortly after the 9/11 attacks, Biden was quoted as telling committee staffers, during a meeting, “Seems to me this would be a good time to send, no strings attached, a check for $200 million to Iran.”

[Biden] looks around the table with raised eyebrows, a How do ya like that? look on his face.

Obama to make decisions in war on ISIS. Will approve each strike

We had heard earlier that Obama had his own drone “kill list”. Looks like he likes his finger on the trigger. That has really worked out swell by not listening to our military leaders in the past. What possibly could go wrong? A Community Organizer will fight the war on terror.

Via WSJ:

The president hasn’t yet given the green light for an attack on Islamic State militants in Syria, but the U.S. military campaign against the group there is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control–going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential signoff for strikes. The requirements for the strikes will be far more stringent than those targeting Islamic State in Iraq, at least at first. U.S. officials say it is an attempt to limit the threat the U.S. could be dragged more deeply into the Syrian civil war. After meeting with his top military advisers in Tampa yesterday, Mr. Obama insisted anew that U.S. ground forces won’t engage in combat in Iraq or Syria, despite suggestions by top military commanders that conditions could one day require that U.S. advisers and other military units play a limited front-line role (Here’s a look at why troops in Iraq don’t count as boots on the ground).

Russian Cyber Attack on Wall Street. Obama wanted to give them our Missile Codes

Let’s enjoy our reset with Russia and recall how Obama planned to give away our Missile Defense codes. But shucks, Looks like our new best friend just commenced a cyber attack on Wall Street. I love showing Clinton and Obama as the jackasses they are.

Wouldn’t it have been nice for Europe to have a Missile Defense System?

FBI investigates alleged Russian cyber attack on Wall Street

Major US financial institutions reportedly targeted by sophisticated high-level cyber-attack amid suspicions that operation was launched in retaliation for sanctions over Ukraine.

The FBI is investigating whether Russian hackers staged a cyber-attack on major Wall Street businesses this month in retaliation for US sanctions imposed over Ukraine, Bloomberg News reported last night.

The Russian hackers allegedly stole large amounts of sensitive data from JP Morgan Chase and at least one other bank, according to sources familiar with the investigation. The FBI is also reportedly looking into possible links to recent hacking of large European financial institutions.

Just two short years ago, Obama cancels efforts for a missile Defense for Europe. Because, we had this restart thing that was working swell for Russia, not so much for the United States. Do we really want Clinton in the WH?

Why does The Obama Administration Want to Give Moscow our Missile Defense Codes?
The key is Obama has to make it look good that the  negotiations with Putin have paid off and that he has not been played for a fool.”
Reuters report on a Congressional hearing about the Obama Administration considering giving Putin’s Russia access to our Missile Defense Codes. 

The Reuters report, “Obama mulls giving Moscow data on missile defense”  had these disturbing revelations from   testimony by   Deputy Assistant Defense Secretary  for Nuclear and Missile Defense Policy  Dr. Bradley H. Roberts at hearings before the House Armed Services Committee:

The Obama administration disclosed on Tuesday that it is considering sharing some classified U.S. data as part of an effort to allay Russian concerns about a controversial antimissile shield.

The administration is continuing negotiations begun under former President George W. Bush on a defense technical cooperation agreement with Moscow that could include limited classified data, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Brad Roberts told a House of Representatives’ Armed Services subcommittee.

He gave no details on the sort of data that might be shared under such an agreement.

Russia strongly opposes the U.S.-engineered bulwark being built in and around Europe against ballistic missiles that could be fired by countries like Iran.

We asked a missile defense analyst for his views on these revelations.  He wrote:

Bush never gave any data to the Russians–when will we learn that when the Russians complain and whine, they want something and they want stuff that is valuable……so caving to them always will hurt US security. This is the issue. Obama desperately wants a summit with the Russians in Chicago in May following the Seoul summit.  However, he has nothing to announce.  Reset doesn’t seem to be working.   There is no substance to this story unless it is a leak to see what might happen if the administration does pass such information to the Russians.  Congress appears opposed, but POTUS wants to have a photo op with  a communiqué and better video for the convention and campaign. The key is Obama has to make it look good that the  negotiations with Putin have paid off and that he has not been played for a fool.

H/T: New English Review

Published on Mar 26, 2012
SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — President Barack Obama told Russia’s leader Monday that he would have more flexibility after the November election to deal with the contentious issue of missile defense, a candid assessment of political reality that was picked up by a microphone without either leader apparently knowing.

“This is my last election,” Obama is heard telling outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. “After my election, I have more flexibility.”

Will the Media remain a friend of Obama after they jail a NY Times reporter?

We shall see where this leads.  Will the press remain a loyalist to Obama? The Internet bloggers are next on his list. One to pay attention to. Obama has not let up on whistle blowers, the press is next? After spying on them? Now lock them up? Every totalitarian regime must get the media to toe the line.

Via Daily Caller:

President Barack Obama is no friend of press freedom, says a New York Times reporter who may be sent to jail for refusing to reveal a source.

“A lot of people still think this is some kind of game or signal or spin,” reporter James Risen told his own paper in a profile about his plight published Saturday. “They don’t want to believe that Obama wants to crack down on the press and whistle-blowers. But he does. He’s the greatest enemy to press freedom in a generation.”

Risen’s troubles stem from the 2006 publication of his book “State of War,” which included classified information about a failed CIA plot against Iran’s nuclear program. In 2008, George W. Bush’s Department of Justice subpoenaed Risen to reveal the source of the classified information. Citing his role as a journalist, Risen refused to comply, fighting the subpoena until it expired in 2009.

Is it Daytime or Nighttime in America?

A reminder of where we were once upon a time. Ronald Reagan, always optimistic  and hopeful. Then Mark Levin’s take on the ad with an Obama spin. “It’s nighttime in America”. One has to wonder why Obama even ran for office in 2012 as he appears so disinterested.

It’s Nighttime in America

 

MARK LEVIN: “It’s nighttime in America. Just think where we were four short years ago. Today, we have 15% actual unemployment, foreclosures are at a historic high, gasoline is 70% higher than before and the debt is over $15 trillion. It’s nighttime in America. Today, Americans are divided race, class warfare replaces capitalism and the Constitution is all but ignored. It’s nighttime in America.”
