    Obama declares swine flu national emergency

Order could speed up treatments by waiving certain medical standards  (Complete MSNBC article link)

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama has signed a proclamation declaring swine flu a national emergency, the White House said Saturday.

“In keeping with the administration’s proactive approach to H1N1 Flu, President Obama last night signed a proclamation declaring 2009-H1N1 Influenza a national emergency,” it said in a statement. “The proclamation enhances the ability of our nation’s medical treatment facilities to handle a surge in H1N1 patients by allowing, as needed, the waiver of certain standard federal requirements on a case-by-case basis.”

 

Questions and Answers About Emergency Use Authorization, EUA  (Complete CDC article link)

3)  That the known and potential benefits of the product outweigh the known and potential risks of the product when used to diagnose, prevent, or treat the serious or life threatening disease or condition that is the subject of the declaration; and

4)  That there is no adequate, approved, and available alternative to the product for diagnosing, preventing, or treating such serious or life threatening disease or condition.

An EUA may remain in effect for the duration (one year) of the declaration justifying the emergency use unless revoked. Both the declaration of an emergency and EUAs issued under that declaration may be renewed if justified after a year. The law requires the FDA to publish notice of each EUA in the Federal Register, each termination or revocation of an authorization, and an explanation of the reasons for the action.

 

Obama’s H1N1 Emergency Declaration: Is Martial Law Unfolding?  (Complete Infowars article link)

It is not clear if this declaration falls under the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601–1651).  The act is not mentioned in media reports.

The National Emergencies Act was passed in 1976. It has been extended six times. In 2007, the declaration was strengthened with the issuance of National Security Presidential Directive 51 (NSPD-51) which gave the president the authority to do whatever he deems necessary in a vaguely defined “catastrophic emergency” including everything from canceling elections to suspending the Constitution.

NSPD-51 (National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive) is unconstitutional. It was created on May 4, 2007, as a “presidential directive” (bypassing Congress) and signed by George W. Bush. It claims the power to execute procedures for continuity of the federal government in the event of a “catastrophic emergency.” Such an emergency is construed as “any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions.”

In other words, it is a martial law directive. On May 10, 2007, The Washington Post characterized NSPD-51 is a “shadow government” directive.  Obama’s declaration of a national emergency sets the stage for forced vaccination and internment of people who refuse to be vaccinated.

In January, the National Emergency Centers Establishment Act (HR 645) was introduced in Congress. It calls for the establishment of six national emergency centers in major regions in the US to be located on existing military installations to be used to quarantine people in the case of a public health emergency or forced vaccination program. HR 645 remains in committee.

…earlier today, a CBS investigative report reveals that H1N1 flu cases are not as prevalent as we are told by the government, the CDC, WHO, and the corporate media.  Millions of people are refusing to take the H1N1 vaccine. In the weeks ahead — if Obama’s emergency declaration falls under the above directives — we may witness a move toward martial law, forced vaccination, and internment of those who refuse.

 

Summary Fact Sheet for Disposable Respirators for Use During the Swine Flu Emergency  (Complete CDC article link)

FDA has authorized use of these respirators by the general public during this public health emergency. These respirators are designed to filter out germs that may be present in the air you breathe. They may help reduce your risk of getting sick. They are designed to fit tightly over your mouth and nose, with no gaps. Any gaps will allow air to pass around and reach your nose, mouth, and lungs without being filtered.

These respirators do not eliminate the risk of disease, illness, or death. The effectiveness of these respirators depends on tight fit to your face. Because no respirator provides complete protection against infection, you should always practice other infection control measures such as frequent hand washing, social distancing, and avoiding crowded places.

    Re: Obama declares swine flu national emergency

My family has already had serologically documented H1N1. We all felt lousy for 2-3 days and washed out for a week, but no complications in the 7 members of my household.  I btw have diabetes, heart disease, and had a stroke a few months ago.  As a physician, I feel that the risks of this particular illness are way overblown.  Lucky for us, since half the population will probably get this disease in spite of the lame excuse they have for a vaccination program.

 

The “state of emergency” is just a bunch of hype, and we should all be looking for the reason they are trying to misdirect our attention.

    Re: Obama declares swine flu national emergency

The President’s proclamation:

http://www.politico.com/static/PPM145_memo_one.html

As a Nation, we have prepared at all levels of government, and as individuals and communities, taking unprecedented steps to counter the emerging pandemic. 

Nevertheless, the 2009 H1N1 pandemic continues to evolve. The rates of illness continue to rise rapidly within many communities across the Nation, and the potential exists for the pandemic to overburden health care resources in some localities. 

Thus, in recognition of the continuing progression of the pandemic, and in further preparation as a Nation, we are taking additional steps to facilitate our response.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, including sections 201 and 301 of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) and consistent with section 1135 of the Social Security Act (SSA), as amended (42 U.S.C. 1320b-5), do hereby find and proclaim that, given that the rapid increase in illness across the Nation may overburden health care resources and that the temporary waiver of certain standard Federal requirements may be warranted in order to enable U.S. health care facilities to implement emergency operations plans, the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic in the United States constitutes a national emergency. 

Accordingly, I hereby declare that the Secretary may exercise the authority under section 1135 of the SSA to temporarily waive or modify certain requirements of the Medicare, Medicaid, and State Children’s Health Insurance programs and of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Privacy Rule throughout the duration of the public health emergency declared in response to the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic. 

In exercising this authority, the Secretary shall provide certification and advance written notice to the Congress as required by section 1135(d) of the SSA (42 U.S.C. 1320b-5(d)).

Sorry, Rowmat . . . I wasn’t thinking . . . If it does, I’ll just regenerate the thread in the general discussion area . . . The phoenix saw cuts both ways!

Thanks for the post docmims. If ya don’t mind I have a couple questions for you given your medical expertise. BTW, I’m not a doctor of any sort so please don’t let my nick imply otherwise.

If you have already contracted the virus, and your immunity system won, is it probable to say you won’t be attacked again? I suspect that this, like other viruses may mutate – if so, are you more likely to have a “leg-up” on the new strain?

I don’t know if you were officially “diagnosed” but if you were, would your immunity system now eliminate the need for a vaccination?  You’ve evidently beat this flu, at least once, even though your health conditions were less than optimum.  Do you have any advice for us, non-professionally, to help us build up our own immunity system?

Sorry if I am asking too many questions but it’s very difficult to get at the truth in the face of media hyperbole and unsubstantiated allegations. I never cease to be amazed at the combined capacity of this forum.
