Obama has signed an amendment to an executive order that would allow him to mandate the apprehension and detention of Americans who may or may NOT show signs of “respiratory illness.”
You don't have to be sick, appear sick, or even be around someone who might be sick. This executive order gives unlimited power to arrest ANYONE for ANY reason without due process of law.
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. Obama’s amendment allows for the detention of Americans who display, “Severe acute respiratory syndromes, which are diseases that are associated with fever and signs and symptoms of pneumonia or other respiratory illness, are capable of being transmitted from person to person, and that either are causing, or have the potential to cause, a pandemic, or, upon infection, are highly likely to cause mortality or serious morbidity if not properly controlled.”
Just in time for the winter cold season.
Although Ebola was listed on the original executive order signed by Bush, Obama’s amendment ensures that Americans who merely show signs of respiratory illness, with the exception of influenza, can be forcibly detained by medical authorities.
So, anyone, anywhere, without legal representation can be arrested, detained, and or deported to a SECURE facility. So, if you have a common cold, allergies, or simply under the weather the United States government, via-a-vie the local authorities can arrest, detain, or simply disappear any American citizen. No one will question your disappearance once those in authority say.."The person you are asking about tested positive for "Virus-of the month club." Everyone will breathe a sigh of relief and even thank the local official for doing such an awesome job keeping them safe. You disappearance will be applauded and then forgotten.
REMEMBER: The government, an those in power, cannot hold onto that power without a scary Bogey man to keep the sheep fearful and distracted.
Isn't it convenient that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has measures in place for dealing with an outbreak of a communicable disease which allow for the quarantine of “well persons” who “do not show symptoms” of the disease.
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.
When the legislation was introduced, the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons warned that it “ will turn governors into dictators.”
