He’s either the most clueless president in history or he’s lying. H/T; Weasel Zippers
So one can laugh at this and claim it is the tin foil hat brigade at it again. The other possibility is to read the original documents and shiver at the thought of what this regime claims as its authority.
It’s bad enough that the federal government is building up weaponry, ammunition and SWAT teams, it also has a plan to deploy soldiers in the case of a major flu outbreak.
That’s right, reported Cheryl Chumley, the author of the new “Police State USA: How Orwell’s Nightmare is Becoming Our Reality.”
She pointed to a page posted online by the Defense Department that outlines the federal government’s options in case of a flu outbreak.
Question: What is DoD’s role if there were a pandemic influenza outbreak within the United States?
“Military assistance for civil disturbances” is among that “tasks” the Defense Department would perform “in a pandemic influenza outbreak within the U.S.”
Other tasks include “quarantine assistant to civil authorities,” “mortuary affairs,” “continuity of operations/government,” “protect defense critical infrastructure,” “biosurveillance, disease detection, and information sharing,” and “medical intelligence.”
“The idea of our nation’s fighting forces coming into our communities and kicking off biosurveillance missions, dressed in full battle gear, is something right out of a science fiction drama,” said Chumley.
“It’s bad enough we learn that a 2010 Pentagon memo allows the president to dispatch unarmed drones over American skies and order soldiers to dispel civil uprisings, under certain circumstances. But unleashing the military for a flu epidemic?”

From August, 2012 post: Obama fights injunction against unlawful detention of U.S. citizens
On May 16th,federal judge Kathleen Forrest granted a preliminary injunction to plaintiffs in a lawsuit filed against Barack Obama and the National Defense Authorization Act of 2012 (NDAA),striking down those sections of the Act that provide the president the power to indefinitely detain American citizens without benefit of their 5th and 6th Amendment rights. As a reminder, keep in mind it was Obama that insisted that the language in the NDAA bill include Citizens: Obama lies-he insisted that detention of Americans be in defense bill
“But… It was his administration that insisted that the language be included in the bill”.
From the video: Senator Carl Levin (D-Mich.) told Congress recently that under the original wording of the National Defense Authorization Act, American citizens were excluded from the provision that allowed for detention. Once Obama’s officials saw the text though, says Levin, “the administration asked us to remove the language which says that US citizens and lawful residents would not be subject to this section.”
Under the terms of the Act,Obama had been given exclusive authority to direct members of the US military to arrest and imprison anyone he believed to have “substantially supported” al Qaeda,the Taliban,or “associated forces.” When pressed by plaintiff’s attorneys about the practical extent of this authority,government lawyers admitted …the NDAA does give the president the power to lock up people like journalist Chris Hedges and peaceful activists,” admitting that “…even war correspondents could be locked up indefinitely under the NDAA.”
Yet incredibly,when pressed on the issue,this Obama mouthpiece suggested to Judge Forrest that concerns about the president’s detention powers were excessive as American citizens would,after all,have the ability to file a writ of habeas corpus should they be illegally or improperly jailed! “How long does [such a] petition take,” asked Forrest? When Torrance refused to answer,the Judge continued,“Several years,right”?
