In yet another end-round play by the Obama Administration, on Friday of Labor Day weekend where hot topics are dumped (Hillary Clinton’s email interview with the FBI) to go die before the next news cycle begins, it was announced that $300 million in “public health emergency” funding was earmarked for Japan’s Takeda to manufacture a new Zika vaccine.
No need for Congress to vote on the appropriation; an executive order did the trick. The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), which is helping the FDA screen donated blood against the Zika virus, was the agency from where President Obama found the $300 million in “emergency” funds to execute the backdoor deal. By offshoring the vaccine, there will be zero Congressional oversight, while no U.S. media outlet or lawyer group will be able to discover, by invoking FOIA requests, what will be injected into that rushed Zika vaccine made in Japan.
Zika Breakthrough Dies, because it’s Not a Vaccine
Even more perplexing than the CDC coup—who for a change didn’t want the publicity for their big move against the threat of Zika—was just five days earlier when Florida State University (FSU) announced a breakthrough to combat the mild African disease. FSU scientists had discovered that an existing (“cheap”), off-the-shelf remedy in a tapeworm antidote would suppress if not cure Zika in people who were sick enough to realize they have it. But outside second tier media outlets, the mainstream press didn’t want to cover the solution to Zika.
There is only one reason why the White House and the major media outlets didn’t trumpet the FSU discovery: It wasn’t the right solution. If it were a vaccine, it would have received the red carpet, playing on the nightly news stations, while being hailed a conquering hero. The same week, CNN chose to cover the 3 million bees that were liquidated by the Zika spraying in South Carolina; yet chose not to cover the FSU breakthrough.
What is up with that?
Vaccine Deep State Flexes its Quarantine Might
The Vaccine Deep State, is a Monolith that consists of all the major health agencies, from the WHO, CDC, NIH, FDA, IOM, and others, with the vaccine makers, together with the mainstream news—bought off by Big Pharma in the form of advertising revenue—have no interest in a Zika breakthrough, unless that solution begins with a ‘V’.
‘V’ for Vaccine.
This revelation became clear when, also buried in mid August, the CDC via the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) rolled out a proposed rule change. The 88-page document, Control of Communicable Diseases: Proposed Rule, (8-15-16, Vol. 81, No. 157, Federal Register), wants to grant the CDC full, super-constitutional powers in the event of a quarantine that only the health agency can call.
The CDC wants to be granted full authority over all Americans during the event of a disease outbreak that leads to a mass quarantine. The document, Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM), is “open for comment” from the general public until October 14, 2016. Lucky us.
Deftly trying to skirt around Congress—again—from dissecting the proposed rule changes, debating them, voting on them, and making some or all of them into law, such a flagrant power grab by the Centers of Disease Control (CDC) was designed to shrink the timeline for public discourse, while giving the appearance that the changes are minor, just simple adjustments from existing law on the agency’s limited authority in the event of a communicable disease emergency.
Published in mid August and buried again during the noise of the presidential election three weeks before Americans vote, the NPRM, if approved, would elevate the CDC’s power to the Fourth military-intelligence agency in the United States, right behind the NSA, CIA, and the Department of Defense (DoD).
Such extraordinary powers would lead to a draconian abuse of U.S. citizens’ lives, livelihood, privacy, freedom, liberty, health, wellbeing, among other countless, unintended consequences and lesser indignities.
The rule changes are designed to divide and conquer groups, lovers, friends, and families, from husband and wife, brother and sister, to parents and guardians from their children.
In short, the CDC will take full authorship of your life.
Military “Apprehension” Powers
From the NPRM, on privacy and surveillance, it states: “When an apprehension occurs, the individual is not free to leave or discontinue his/her discussion with an HHS/CDC public health or quarantine officer.” (NPRM, pg. 10).
“The Secretary’s authority to allow for the apprehension, examination, detention, and conditional release of individuals is limited to those communicable diseases specified in an Executive Order of the President.” (NPRM, pg. 5)
“Those communicable diseases, as of this NPRM include:
“These quarantinable communicable diseases currently include cholera, diphtheria, infectious tuberculosis (TB), plague, smallpox, yellow fever, and viral hemorrhagic fevers (such as Marburg, Ebola, Lassa fever, and Crimean-Congo).” (NPRM, pg. 5).
