There are times in our life when we need to put aside our daily personal struggles and turn our attention toward a greater issue. This is one of those times.
Not since the Patriot Act of 2001 or the Canadian Bill C-15 of 2016 have we seen a proposal for the expansion of state powers that so violates civil liberties.
This summer, public health officials at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) were publishing a lengthy Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) in the August 15, 2016 Federal Register to amend federal public health law.
The part of the Public Health Service Act they want to strengthen is the part that gives them power under the U.S. Constitution to restrict the freedoms of people entering the U.S. or travelling within the country between states if they believe them infected or at risk of infection with certain kinds of communicable diseases.
This Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) involves the use of federally funded state health departments and state facilities as the majority of police power to detain, isolate, and quarantine citizens belongs to the individual states.
If this NPRM is implemented and the states comply we could all be subjected to forced quarantines and vaccinations. Failing to comply with these regulations could also land you in prison for up to a year and fined anywhere between $100,00 and $250,000.
There are 69 different CDC recommended vaccines. Public health surveys show that 87% of parents have denied at least one of these 69 vaccines for their children. Any one of these persons could be subject to a forced vaccination.
Regardless of whether or not you believe vaccines to be effective in treating disease, this is a gross violation of human rights that is being carried out by a government organization that is largely controlled by pharmaceutical companies through regulatory capture. The majority of the officials in charge of the CDC also have previously worked or serve on the boards of major pharmaceutical companies.
What we are seeing here is not a measure to improve public health but a measure to use the state to force you to use a pharmaceutical product. The directors of the CDC are not concerned for our health. If they really cared they would not have a history of preventable disease communication due to structural incompetence.
We have bureaucrats who are financially incentivized to have you buy pharmaceutical products. They will have this done by your own will or through the state. Either way, you or the government you fund will pay for the cost and the drugs are going to get into your system.
We are led to believe that regulatory agencies such as the CDC, FDA, and USDA are there to protect public health. Nothing could be further from the truth. Each organization serves to enforce a corporate oligopoly in the food and drug industries. They serve many people, but we aren’t among them.
You only have until October 14, 2016, to make a public comment to the CDC and contact your legislators in Congress, so please take this seriously, because what the CDC is proposing applies to all Americans who travel outside the country or between states, especially on commercial airlines, and could affect international travellers, too.
Sharing information about proposed changes in legislation like this online and in person are essential to preventing them from being passed.
We are in a state of evolution in our consciousness but that growth in our awareness is there to help us take the necessary action to change our world. The very fact that you have read this means that you are a part of this expansion in global human consciousness. It is up to all of us to expand the awareness of others so that we can get past this terrible chapter of history together and begin creating a new world.
