Obama Signs Executive Order to Detain Americans With 'Respiratory Illnesses'

submit to reddit

As the Ebola outbreak continues to cause concern, President Barack Obama has signed an amendment to an executive order that would allow him to mandate the apprehension and detention of Americans who merely show signs of “respiratory illness.”

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.”

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.

Although the quarantining of people suspected of being infected with the Ebola virus seems like a perfectly logical move, the actual preconditions for this to happen aren’t restricted to just those suffering from the disease.

As we highlighted earlier this week, 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.

In addition, under 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 “could turn governors into dictators.”

Yesterday it was reported that Emory University Hospital in Atlanta was set to receive a patient infected with Ebola. A hospital in Germany also accepted an infected patient earlier this week. Some critics have raised concerns about the risk of deliberately importing infected individuals into the west.

    As an American who has been following the crimes of America and the NWO who knows about science, all evidence points to a plot to put the whole world at their mercy, prevent the natural progression of the justice system which would soon have to respond to the massive number of calls for justice for the many crimes done against the American people and the citizens of the world, all the while holding the cure for this virus that will make the criminals who started this outbreak, the elite who control the CIA, the media, and own Monsanto very rich. Viruses do not just evolve their method of transition easily. The investment of America in biowarfare is second to none, and there is much evidence that AIDS and swine flu were created in American labs. Cheney in particular is connected to the swine flu. The amount of money made from the care of people with HIV and giving vaccine for swine flu certainly is a high number of billions of dollars and could even be in the trillions. A person to read, who single-handedly may have stopped the deliberate spread of bird flu by filing a lawsuit in Austria, is Jane Burgermeister who warned of Ebola’s deliberate spread months before it happened. Reports show that Tulane University biowarfare experts with Doctors Without Borders have been in every area affected before the Ebola breakout even began.
