A soft form of medial martial law has begun in this country. The administration is aligning its forces, revocation of due process and civil liberties is strongly being hinted at and we will not have to wait much longer for nature to take its course.
President Obama refuses to close the borders to possible bioterrorism involving Ebola and possible terrorists crossing our southern border. Obama also refuses to close American airports to travelers from West Africa, despite the fact that over 30 nations have done exactly that. However, with regard to a newly announced Obama policy, the President certainly has no problem swat-teaming American citizens suspected of having the deadly virus.
According to the Associated Press, President Obama has announced that the CDC will respond in a “much more aggressive way” to cases of Ebola in the United States. The President has ordered the CDC to institute “rapid response teams”. When we combine this directive with what we are seeing in HHS and DHS documents regarding “isolation” camps, it is very difficult to not conclude that Americans suspected of Ebola and those with exposure to Ebola are soon going to swat-teamed by the CDC. More confirmation on this development comes from CNN as they are reporting that the U.S. military is forming a 30-person “quick strike team” equipped to provide direct treatment to Ebola patients inside the United States, a Defense Department official told CNN on Sunday. Has anyone considered the fact that America might not need a 30 “brown shirted” set of response teams, if the President had closed the airports to West African travelers?
As a footnote to both the AP and the CNN story, there was no mention of patient rights, due process or anything remotely connected to personal autonomy and freedom. Yet, it is this President’s policy which allowed Thomas Duncan to travel, unabated from Liberia to the United States with Ebola and infect other Americans with the deadly virus.
Does anyone else really think that this practice is going to be confined to the narrow window of only rounding up “suspected” Ebola patients? When we consider the over-arching implications of the NDAA, it is prudent to be suspicious of this President’s every move, especially when the topic centers around loss of personal liberty and freedom. If you are unfamiliar with the NDAA and its un-American provisions related to unconstitutional detainment, you may want to review the ACLU’s review of the NDAA. When I find myself agreeing with the ACLU, on anything, especially on the pitfalls of the NDAA, it is noteworthy.
The dots are manifesting faster than anyone can connect them. There is a now a clear direction, even if this administration will not say it in plain language. Watch the video below, in which Obama announces the formation of CDC swat teams to round up “suspected” Ebola victims. Watch how the President measures his every word. This is a man who knows where this crisis is headed, he just does not want you to know, at least not quite yet, that medical martial law has been declared and is upon us.
