    News agencies in other countries, discussing the suggestion openly that it was "possibly" a bioweapon. Yet they tend to go towards a regular virus towards the end, probably to stay out of trouble for suggesting as much. Everyone pointing fingers at others.

    Rockefeller Plan to Use Bioweapons to Impose Martial Law One Quarantine at a Time

    The US military-industrial police state has never hesitated to sacrifice the lives of Americans in order to achieve its goal of locking down control of all movement - not just in & out of the country but within the country. Bioweapons, as the Rockefeller Foundation gleefully pointed out way back in 2010, are a fantastic way to convince an already-mentally-supine population to yield control of their physical forms to the state's machinations as well.

    While the interview in this video was recorded in 2014 as an Ebola outbreak ravaged west Africa, Vox's observations are if anything even more applicable to 2020's coronavirus outbreak, which has set western powers salivating as China sets into motion its enviable (if you're a power-mad sociopath) state control machinery to quarantine some 50 million people behind a 'cordon sanitaire' that authorities admit has already allowed carriers of the virus to slip out ahead of its imposition - meaning this massive crackdown on free movement serves no purpose other than as a giant human experiment in what liberties a population will thoroughly trash for the fleeting illusion of security. spoiler alert: too many.

    This (copied below) is just an extract.

    If you're reading this post, read the next two paragraphs. This is EXACTLY what's happening now.
    Even the most pandemic-prepared nations were quickly overwhelmed when the virus streaked around the world, infecting nearly 20 percent of the global population and killing 8 million in just seven months, the majority of them healthy young adults. The pandemic also had a deadly effect on economies: international mobility of both people and goods screeched to a halt, debilitating industries like tourism and breaking global supply chains. Even locally, normally bustling shops and office buildings sat empty for months, devoid of both employees and customers.The pandemic blanketed the planet — though disproportionate numbers died in Africa, Southeast Asia, and Central America, where the virus spread like wildfire in the absence of official containment protocols. But even in developed countries, containment was a challenge. The United States’ initial policy of “strongly discouraging” citizens from flying proved deadly in its leniency, accelerating the spread of the virus not just within the U.S. but across borders. However, a few countries did fare better — China in particular. The Chinese government’s quick imposition and enforcement of mandatory quarantine for all citizens, as well as its instant and near-hermetic sealing off of all borders, saved millions of lives, stopping the spread of the virus far earlier than in other countries and enabling a swifter post-pandemic recovery.

    China’s government was not the only one that took extreme measures to protect its citizens from risk and exposure. During the pandemic, national leaders around the world flexed their authority and imposed airtight rules and restrictions, from the mandatory wearing of face masks to body-temperature checks at the entries to communal spaces like train stations and supermarkets. Even after the pandemic faded, this more authoritarian control and oversight of citizens and their activities stuck and even intensified. In order to protect themselves from the spread of increasingly global problems — from pandemics and transnational terrorism to environmental crises and rising poverty — leaders around the world took a firmer grip on power.

    I've been very cautious about all this, absorbing all the information and viewpoints I can find.

    But on record here, I'm now stating that I'm VERY persuaded this is an orchestrated scenario. When I read the above I was completely stopped in my tracks. It was so similar to what's happening currently it was even a little hard to believe.

    I wasn’t going to share it unless I could find a copy of the Chinese scientific report, but I’ve been unsuccessful so far.

    I found the report, thanks to The Post Millennial (TPM).

    This is definitely the report I’ve been looking for, it was originally reported on in a Chinese newspaper and then by a few online news sites in english. This report contains some details that were in one of the online articles I read, but weren’t included in the news report above.

    According to TPM, it was a pre-print report. It has since been deleted but not before it was archived HERE.

    Here’s the report copied below (emphasis mine). For ease of reading I’ve removed the reference list figures (IDK how to make them tiny and raise them), see the report for the references. Apologies for the extra spaces between a lot of the words. The report was formatted in a way that made copying and pasting it a tedious task, so I’m leaving those spaces.

    The 2019-nCoV coronavirus has c‭aused an epidemic of 28,060 labo‭ratory-confirmed ‬‬infections in human including 564 ‭deaths in China by February 6‭, 2020. Two descriptions ‬‬of ‭ ‬the virus published ‭ ‬on ‭ ‬Nature ‭this week indicated that ‭ ‬the ‭ ‬g‭enome ‭ ‬sequences ‭ ‬from ‬‬patients were ‭ ‬96% ‭ ‬or 89% identic‭al to the ‭ ‬Bat ‭ ‬CoV ZC45 coronavirus originally found in ‬Rhinolophus affinis‭‭. It was critical to study where the pathogen came ‭ ‬from and how‭ it ‬‬‬passed onto human.

    An article published on The Lancet‭ reported that 41 people in W‭uhan were found ‭ ‬to ‬‬have the acute respiratory sy‭ndrome and 27 of them ‭ ‬had ‭ ‬contact ‭ with ‭ ‬Huanan ‭ ‬Seafood ‬‬Market‭. The 2019-nCoV was found in 33 out‭ of 585 samples collected in the market after ‬‬the outbreak. The market was sus‭picious to be ‭ ‬the origin of the‭ epidemic, and ‭ ‬was ‭ ‬shut ‬‬down according to the rule of quar‭antine the source during an e‭pidemic.‬‬

    The bats carrying ‭ ‬CoV ‭ ‬ZC45 ‭ ‬were originally ‭ ‬found ‭ ‬in Yunnan or Z‭hejiang province, ‬both of ‭ ‬which were more than 900 kilometers away ‭ ‬from ‭ ‬the seafo‭od market. Bats were ‬normally found to live in caves ‭and trees. But the seafood mark‭et is in a densely-populated ‬‬district of Wuhan, a metropolit‭an of ~15 million people. The pr‭obability was very low for the ‬‬bats to fly to the market. According to municipal reports and the testimonies of 31 residents and 28 visitors, the bat was never‭ a food source in the city, a‭nd no bat was traded in the ‬‬market. There was possible natur‭al recombination or intermediate host of the coronavirus, ‬yet little proof has been reported.

    Was there ‭ ‬any ‭ ‬other ‭ ‬possibl‭e ‭ ‬pathway? ‭ ‬We ‭ ‬screened the ‭ ‬ar‭ea ‭ ‬around the ‭ ‬seafood ‬‬market and identified ‭two laboratories conducting ‭research on bat coronavirus‭. Within ~280 ‬‬‬meters from ‭ ‬the ‭ ‬market, there ‭ ‬was ‭ ‬the ‭ ‬Wuhan ‭ ‬Center ‭ ‬for Disease ‭Control & ‭ ‬Prevention ‬(WHCDC) (Figure ‭ ‬1, ‭ ‬from Baidu and Google maps). ‭ ‬WHCDC hosted an‭imals in laboratories ‬for research purpose, one of which was specialized in pathogens‭ collection and identification. ‭ ‬In ‭ ‬one ‭ ‬of their ‭ ‬studies, 155 ‭ ‬bats ‭ ‬including ‭Rhinolophus affinis‭ ‭were ‭ ‬captured in ‭ ‬Hubei ‬‬‬‬province, and other 450 bats were captured in Zhejiang province‭‭. The expert in ‭collection ‬‬‬was noted in the Author Contributions (JHT)‭. Moreover, he was broa‭dcasted for collecting ‬‬viruses on nation-wide newspape‭rs and websites in 2017 and 2019‭‭. He described that ‬‬‬he was once attacked ‭ ‬by ‭ ‬bats ‭and ‭ ‬the blood of ‭ ‬a ‭ ‬bat ‭ ‬shot on ‭ ‬‬his skin. ‭ ‬He ‭ ‬knew ‭ ‬the extreme danger of the infection ‭so he quarantined himself for 1‭4 days‭. In another accident, ‬‬‬he quarantined himself again becaus‭e bats peed on him. He was once thrilled for capturing ‬a bat carrying a live tick‭.‬

    Surgery was performed on the caged animals and the tissue sampl‭es were collected for ‬DNA and RNA extraction and sequencing‭. ‭The tissue samples and contaminated trashes ‬‬were ‭ ‬source ‭ ‬of pathogens. ‭They ‭ ‬were ‭ ‬only ‭ ‬~28‭0 ‭ ‬meters ‭ ‬from ‭ ‬the ‭ ‬seafood ‭ ‬market. ‭ ‬The ‬‬WHCDC was also adjacent to the Union Hospital (Figure 1, bottom‭) where the first group ‬of doctors ‭ ‬were infected during ‭this ‭ ‬epidemic. It is plausible ‭ that the virus leaked around ‬‬and some of them contaminated the ‭ initial ‭ ‬patients ‭ ‬in ‭ ‬this ‭ ‬epid‭emic, ‭ ‬though ‭ ‬solid ‭ ‬proofs ‬‬are needed in future study.

    The second laboratory was ~12 k‭ilometers from the seafood marke‭t and belonged to ‬‬Wuhan Institute of Virology, C‭hinese Academy of Sciences‭. This laboratory ‬‬reported that the Chinese horseshoe bats were natural reservoir‭s for the severe acute ‬respiratory syndrome coronavirus‭ (SARS-CoV) which caused the 20‭02-3 pandemic‭.‬‬‬ The principle investigator par‭ticipated in a project which gene‭rated a chimeric virus using ‬‬the SARS-CoV reverse genetics sy‭stem, and report‭ed the potential for human ‬‬emergence‭. A direct speculation was that ‭SARS-CoV or its derivative might leak from ‬‬the laboratory.

    In summary, somebody was entangled‭ with the evolution of 2019-n‭CoV coronavirus. ‬‬In addition to origins of natura‭l recombination and intermediat‭e host, the killer coronavirus ‬‬probably originated from a labor‭atory in Wuhan. Safety level ma‭y need to be reinforced in ‬‬high ‭ ‬risk ‭ ‬biohazardous‭ ‬laboratorie‭s. ‭ ‬Regulations ‭ ‬may ‭ ‬be ‭ ‬taken ‭ ‬t‭o ‭ ‬relocate ‭ ‬these ‬‬laboratories far away from cit‭y center and other densely popula‭ted places. ‬‬

    Seems like it really gets worse and worse ... still I feel there is much much more to it than only the (weaponized) virus!

    I've been very cautious about all this, absorbing all the information and viewpoints I can find.

    But on record here, I'm now stating that I'm VERY persuaded this is an orchestrated scenario. When I read the above I was completely stopped in my tracks. It was so similar to what's happening currently it was even a little hard to believe.
    You found something that to me is part of a playbook. But what can we do in the US? Mike is always predicting the worst but I agree with his overall suspicions. Considering the crack down on dissenting voices for natural health care and about vaccine hesitance...I know there is something deliberate happening.

    Mike is saying something we may want to think about in the US?

    Now that you have advanced knowledge of the coronavirus outbreak coming to America, what will you do with this information?


    This is about the use of vitamin C with Covid19

    Readers are advised to read the following with great skepticism. Still, I am posting this here at PA because PA members do like to explore potential real world conspiracies.

    Are They Burning Dead Bodies In Wuhan, China To Hide The Inadvertent Release Of A Mortal Nerve Toxin?


    A marginally credible website (UFO Spotlight) has over a half-million views for its chilling OMG report that states the true magnitude of China’s coronavirus outbreak, when unmasked, is unfathomable. (This author is not posting the exact URL over concern for the spread of more misinformation.)

    Said to originate from an interview of a Chinese intelligence officer, who says he is in grave danger, because this infectious disease outbreak is being used to consolidate political power and control over their population and that sources inside the U.S.A. are complicit with this hidden agenda, namely to manipulate and control thinking patterns of its citizens and strike a terrifying level of fear that gets the masses to do what their overseers demand.

    The story says there is no coronavirus. That was all made up to cover for the horror that resulted from a toxin that was mistakenly released. This report talks of 21 vials of some sort of transmissible and invisible aerosolized nerve agent that was in the process of being handed off from Chinese to CIA-western security agents when it was dropped at an open market and began to spread.

    The report says China bought a weaponized Wuhan virus from the U.S. to cover for release of the nerve toxin. The toxin was intended to induce mental decline and reduction of higher thinking processes. It ended up causing panic attacks with rapid deterioration of entire systems in the body, with arteries melting and tissue disintegration that caused its sufferers to beg to be put to death. Fatality rate is 100% says this 1st-person report.

    An eerie video is shown of a fleet of disinfection trucks that release a foggy mist, combing through the streets of Wuhan at night. Even the very existence of these trucks is very fear-evoking. Only a special mask protects against it, says the report. Newly constructed hospitals, says this Chinese military officer, are just morgues. (Is your hair standing straight up now?)

    Here is the truth:

    There ARE millions of dead bodies being incinerated in or near Wuhan, China, the epicenter of the current coronavirus epidemic.

    As evidence is the smoky air that is seen in Wuhan. Called the “coronavirus death smog,” self-proclaimed whistle blowers claim the sulfur dioxide smoke, commonly seen in aerial photos of the city of Wuhan, emanates from incinerators and serve as evidence of mass cremations. And there are sulfur dioxide maps to prove it.

    Sulfur dioxide is a smelly gas (like burnt matches) released naturally in the atmosphere, usually from crude oil burning in power plants or other factories.

    Months before the coronavirus outbreak there were protests in Wuhan over installation of a waste incineration plant. Were Wuhan residents wary of an incinerator that could be used to hide the dead bodies in a mass culling of the population?

    It is reported there are 84 incinerators in funeral homes in Wuhan that have a capacity to perform over 2000 cremations in a day and that they are working around the clock in recent weeks.

    A Radio Free Asia news report says there are ~70,000 infections in Wuhan, but an unconfirmed source in China says there are over 500,000 infections. With a 2% mortality rate, that would result in more than 10,000 deaths, not the ~2000 widely reported. While this is speculation, the numbers can’t be confirmed by digging up graves; incinerated bodies are ash.

    Most human populations have no pre-existing antibodies against this newly mutated coronavirus, save for the few who have been infected and developed their own antibodies naturally, without a vaccine (there is no approved vaccine). So, fear strikes deep and fast around the world with the prospect of a massive die off of human populations looming in the back of people’s minds. The world’s masses could be forced to comply with their overseers to spare themselves such horror.

    If this mutated coronavirus, or the inadvertently release toxin have killed millions (half of the population in Wuhan, China, is missing, said to have fled the city once quarantines were announced). Did mass numbers of missing humans die from mutated coronaviral infection and/or the nerve toxin with a resultant government ruse to hide what would be the greatest loss to human life since the Black Plague?

    But hold up. The news reports are sensationalist, used to draw web traffic from all over the globe.

    The millions of dead bodies being incinerated are pigs, not humans.

    Another viral outbreak, the African Swine Fever, has been devastating swine herds in China and Europe since 2018, wiping out roughly one-quarter of the world’s pigs. The African Swine Fever is highly contagious and kills off pig herds rapidly, but does not threaten human populations. China used to have 440 million pigs, a number that has been cut in half. China’s hog business has reportedly sustained $1 trillion of losses since August 2018.

    African Swine Fever has spurred along an effort to develop a vaccine. More disconcerting, there are news reports of criminal gangs in China spreading African Swine Fever virus to force farmers to sell pigs cheaply.

    But the satellite images showing sulfur dioxide (SO2) clusters in the Wuhan area represent commonly high SO2 levels. The satellite data emanates from forecasts and probabilities and may be error-prone says a report in EURONEWS.

    If anything is being incinerated in masse, it is Swine Fever-infected pigs.

    But a question remains: is the COVID-19 coronavirus really a virus? Or is it some other pathogen? That will be the subject of my next report.
    All the above is all and only my opinion - all subject to change and not meant to be true for anyone else regardless of how I phrase it.

    Trump Regime Overruled CDC, Flew Coronavirus-Infected Americans on Plane With Healthy People: Report


    https://gizmodo.com/trump-regime-ove...d-a-1841826671

    How else can one analyze this but think that they are really trying to infect the US?
    This kind of error is so blatant it’s insane!
    ~~~
    I think this is important enough to copy the article here, please read it below. The State Department deliberately mingled infected and, asymptomatic passengers with crew on an evacuation airplane. They will be quarantined for 14 days even though infected asymptomatic people can spread the disease for at least up to 24 days. We know this, do they?

    The U.S. State Department overruled the advice of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), choosing to bring 14 Americans who were infected with the new coronavirus back from Japan, according to the Washington Post. The new report raises serious questions about the U.S. government’s decisions at a time when the coronavirus, which causes an illness called Covid-19, threatens to become a global pandemic.

    The American evacuees were passengers on the Diamond Princess cruise, which has been quarantined in Yokohama, Japan since February 5. Over 600 of the 3,700 passengers from the Diamond Princess have tested positive for the virus, and it was announced yesterday that two Japanese passengers in their 80s recently died. The U.S. chartered two Boeing 747 planes to bring Americans from the cruise ship to military bases in California and Texas where they’re being quarantined for 14 days.

    One of the U.S. State Department’s evacuation planes was loaded with 328 Americans on Monday when new lab results came back showing that 14 of the passengers had tested positive for the coronavirus. The CDC’s principal deputy director, Anne Schuchat, recommended that the 14 passengers be taken off the plane and receive medical attention in Japan. But Trump officials like Robert Kadlec, assistant secretary for preparedness and response at HHS, disagreed with the CDC, according to the Washington Post.

    Kadlec, who previously worked as a special assistant to President George W. Bush and serves as a member of the Trump regime’s coronavirus task force, reportedly argued that the planes that had been chartered by the government contained seats which could be cordoned off for any infected passengers. This news wasn’t shared with the other healthy passengers on the flight, many of whom only learned about flying with infected passengers after they landed in the U.S. and saw news reports.

    Videos posted online by American passengers from the evacuation flights show potentially infected passengers being put in a special area of the plane. One health worker in a blue suit appears to instruct some passengers with his hands above his head.



    The U.S. State Department made the final decision to allow the infected passengers to fly (in the same airspace as uninfected passengers and crew) siding with Kadlec over the CDC. As a result, officials from the CDC asked that the Trump regime leave their names off the press release about the evacuation.

    “CDC did weigh in on this and explicitly recommended against it,” the CDC’s Schuchat wrote in an email to the Trump regime that was shared with the Washington Post. “We should not be mentioned as having been consulted as it begs the question of what was our advice.”

    The number of coronavirus cases outside China continues to climb, with South Korea and Iran reporting their first deaths from Covid-19 this week. And new cases of the disease are popping up daily in places like Italy. Cases in South Korea doubled overnight, bringing the total number of infected people in that country to 204, according to the Korea Times.

    And even within China, where the virus is thought to be slowing its spread, there are some frightening new reports. A 29-year-old doctor in Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak, died on Friday, a worrying sign in a region where at least 3,000 health care workers have been stricken with the virus. The doctor’s age has also alarmed some public health experts since the vast majority of fatalities from the virus had previously been in people over the age of 60.

    Prisons across China are also trying to control the virus, as Rencheng Prison in the Chinese province of Shandong has reported over 200 cases of the new coronavirus in prisoners on Thursday, with seven guards also contracting the disease. An additional 230 cases were reported at Wuhan Women’s Prison on Friday, according to the South China Morning Post.

    Meanwhile, allies of President Donald Trump, like anti-China commentator Gordon Chang, have become darkly boastful that the Covid-19 has been hitting China incredibly hard. Chang appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show this week and tweeted about how China will decline on the world stage in the wake of the virus.

    “Many smart people, knowing that China would dominate the world, thought they should try to manage America’s decline,” Chang tweeted on Thursday. “Look who’s declining now. It ain’t America. Funny what a tiny microbe can do.”

    Aside from being a disgusting thing to say on a human level, it’s way too early for anyone outside China to assume that they won’t see the virus impact their country soon.

    “Yes, the U.S. is already being affected, and it will get worse,” Chang conceded in a follow-up tweet. “Our society will not, however, be afflicted to the same degree.”

    We’ll certainly see about that. With Trump at the wheel, I wouldn’t get too cocky.

    I am not ashamed of humanity.

    Look, I know people aren't perfect, and there are lots of evil people out there. But there are lots more who are trying. How many people might have been involved in releasing the virus? How many more people are fighting to help them get through this? Not just the doctors and the nurses and the other medical staff...how about the people who just encourage others from the balconies of their apartment? Who share humourous memes just to keep spirits lifted?

    It's the truly awful things that take much more of our attention, but remember that most people live their days doing little things.

    It's a lot harder to clean up a mess than it is to make one. But the good guys outnumber the bad, and one day we will get this cleaned up.

    Yes, disinformation is going on in full swing and from different sides. That is why I don't believe anything I read (or hear/watch) regarding this virus (and many other subjects of global interest). But also, if the conspiracy theory put forth in the article I posted turned out to be true, I wouldn't be surprised. And I say this based on what I have experienced first hand with regard to this lovely planet as well as all that has been written about, then revised, then revised again and... depending on the source, twisted in all sorts of directions.

    Few (if any) are completely immune from the vulnerability to "believe" something that later, turns out not to be true... even some of the more savvy folks that are staff, members or readers of this forum.

    U.S. Marines and Navy Prepare to Execute Pandemic Plan As Questions Resurface About Coronavirus Origin
    by Barbara Loe Fisher
    Published February 20, 2020
    https://thevaccinereaction.org/2020/...avirus-origin/

    "Responding to the coronavirus outbreak in China, where tens of thousands of citizens suspected of being infected with coronavirus (COVID-2019) have been detained and involuntarily taken to quarantine camps,1 on Feb. 1, 2020 an executive order was issued by the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD), including the Joint Chiefs of Staff, directing the U.S. Northern Command to implement the DoD’s Global Campaign Plan for Pandemic and Infectious Diseases.2 On Feb. 12, 2020, orders were sent to the U.S. Marine Corps3 and Navy4 directing “geographic combatant commanders to execute their pandemic plans in response to the NCOV outbreak.”

    The U.S. Marine Corps directive told combat commanders to “review, update and validate existing disease containment plans and policies in order to implement procedures for response, isolation, quarantine, restriction of movement and community-based intervention” and to “become familiar with authority to declare a public health emergency, restrict movement, quarantine and isolate [and[ coordinate with Federal, State, local, and military treatment facilities and public health emergency officials…” The U.S. Navy directive stated, “DoD will continue to follow CDC guidance and comply with local public health authorities during this outbreak.”

    As of Feb. 18, 2020, there had been 75,198 cases of COVID-2019 detected globally and 2,009 deaths, with all but 1,013 cases and 5 deaths occurring in China.5 The U.S. now has 29 confirmed cases being treated on military bases or in a biocontainment facility.

    Reports by Chinese Scientists Raise Questions About Origin of Coronavirus
    At the same time, over the past week new questions have resurfaced about whether the novel coronavirus (COVID-2019) can be traced back to scientific research conducted in Wuhan labs, a subject that has been widely discussed since January after the outbreak in China emerged.6 According to a Feb. 16 report in the Daily Mail, scientists at the South China University of Technology have written a paper questioning whether research on bats and respiratory diseases at the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the Wuhan Centers for Disease Control (WCDC) created a new chimeric coronavirus capable of infecting humans. The WCDC is located just 300 yards from the fish and wildlife food market thought to be the origin of the coronavirus and is adjacent to the Union Hospital where the first group of doctors were infected.7

    On Feb. 15, a paper was published in The Lancet by Chinese scientists, “Clinical features of patients infected with 2019 novel coronavirus in Wuhan, China.” The authors stated, “In December, 2019, a series of pneumonia cases of unknown cause emerged in Wuhan, Hubei, China, with clinical presentations greatly resembling viral pneumonia” and they described 41 cases hospitalized by Jan. 2, 2020, of which 66 percent (27 people) had been exposed to the food market and 15 percent (6 people) died:

    Most of the infected patients were men (30 [73%] of 41); less than half had underlying diseases (13 [32%]), including diabetes (eight [20%]), hypertension (six [15%]), and cardiovascular disease (six [15%]). Median age was 49·0 years (IQR 41·0–58·0). 27 (66%) of 41 patients had been exposed to Huanan seafood market…Complications included acute respiratory distress syndrome (12 [29%]), RNAaemia (six [15%]), acute cardiac injury (five [12%]) and secondary infection (four [10%]). 13 (32%) patients were admitted to an ICU and six (15%) died.8

    The World Health Organization (WHO) continues to maintain that the new virus spontaneously jumped from animals, most likely bats, to humans in the Wuhan market selling seafood and wildlife animals and that online speculation to the contrary is “misinformation.” In early February, International Business Times reported that WHO had teamed up with Google to battle online “misinformation” about the epidemic.9 A Feb. 14 CNBC report revealed that the WHO hosted a meeting at Facebook’s Menlo Park, California campus with Google, Amazon, You Tube, Twitter, Verizon and other big tech companies to discuss how to “tamp down on misinformation about the coronavirus.10

    CDC Preparing for Novel Coronavirus to “gain a foothold in the U.S.”
    According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, on Feb. 12 Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, told media during a conference call “we can and should be prepared for this new virus to gain a foothold in the U.S.”11

    On Feb. 14, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) announced that in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago and New York City, the agency had begun monitoring Americans with flu-like symptoms, who test negative for influenza, by additionally lab testing them for coronavirus. According to CNBC, the CDC intends to add more cities in the coming weeks in an effort to achieve a “national surveillance” system that would act as an early warning that COVID-2019 is spreading, which would “trigger a change in our response strategy,” said Messonnier.12

    A report by Reuters stated:

    The CDC’s current strategy to fight the virus includes quarantines and travel restrictions, but that may change if the virus takes hold in the United States and begins to spread. In that scenario, the CDC will put in place “social distancing” strategies such as cancelling mass gatherings, using telemedicine, tele-schooling and remote working to try to disrupt the spread of the virus.13[xiii]

    Americans on Diamond Princess Cruise Ship Test Positive
    More than 600 Americans, who were evacuated from Wuhan, China in early February, have been in quarantined in the U.S. and some have already been released. Other Americans suspected to have come in contact with COVID-2019 have been quarantined on cruise ships. On Feb. 16, about 380 U.S. citizens on the Diamond Princess cruise ship quarantined in a Japanese harbor, who had not tested positive for coronavirus and were symptom-free, were offered seats on U.S. State Department chartered flights transporting them back to quarantine centers on military bases in California and Texas. According to CNBC, about 300 Americans accepted the State Department’s offer to fly back to the U.S., while nearly 100 others with no symptoms of illness decided to stay on the ship.14

    On Feb. 17, the U.S. State Department and Department of Health and Human Services issued a joint statement acknowledging that 14 asymptomatic American evacuees from the Diamond Princess cruise ship were allowed to fly on the chartered flights despite testing positive for coronavirus before getting on the planes.15 According to USA Today, when the planes landed at military bases in Texas and California, 13 passengers who had tested positive for the virus were flown to the University of Nebraska Medical Center and Nebraska Medicine quarantine and biocontainment facility in Omaha for treatment. All of the Americans returning from the Diamond Princess will remain in quarantine for 14 days. 16

    By Feb. 18, there had been 542 cases of COVID-2019 diagnosed among the cruise ships’ 3,700 passengers and crew. 17 Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, told USA Today that, “The quarantine process failed.”18

    Posse Comitatus Act of 1878
    The scope of the mission of the U.S. Marines and U.S. Navy’s involvement in implementing the DoD’s Global Campaign Plan for Pandemic and Infectious Diseases in a civilian population is not clear as that Plan does not appear to have been publicly released by DoD. In general, however, the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act (PCA) prohibits the carte blanche use of military forces in civilian law enforcement in the U.S.19

    According to an essay for the Encyclopedia Brittanica:20

    The willful use of the army or air force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws is a felony, unless the use is expressly authorized by the Constitution or an act of Congress. The PCA directly applies only to the army and air force, without mentioning the navy, the Marine Corps, the Coast Guard, or the National Guard. The National Guard is subject to Article I, section 8 of the Constitution, “To provide for calling forth the Militia to execute the Laws of the Union, suppress Insurrections and repel Invasions.” The National Guard is under state control until called into federal service, and is authorized to enforce the laws upon the request of a governor. Because the Coast Guard has a law enforcement function and is not under the control of the Department of Defense, it is not subject to the PCA. Although the naval service is not mentioned in the PCA, Department of Defense regulations extend the PCA to the navy and Marine Corps.

    Establishment of the U.S. Northern Command After 9/11
    After terrorist attacks on the U.S. mainland on Sept. 11, 2001 (9/11), the U.S. Northern Command was established Oct. 1, 2002. According to a 2008 report to Congress by the Congressional Research Service, “In 2002, President Bush signed a new Unified Command Plan (UCP) establishing United States Northern Command (NORTHCOM) to provide command and control of the Department of Defense’ (DOD’s) homeland defense efforts and coordinate military support to civil authorities.”21

    NORTHCOM’s area of responsibility includes the continental United States, Alaska, Canada, Mexico, and surrounding waters out to approximately 500 nautical miles, including the Gulf of Mexico and the Straits of Florida. Headquartered at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado, the NORTHCOM Commander also commands North American Aerospace Defense Command.22

    U.S. Northern Command’s mission is to deter, prevent and defeat threats and aggression aimed at the United States, its territories, and interests. To this end personnel from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard are assigned to coordinate the protection of North America from external threats, drawing on the full capabilities of all U.S. military services, including the National Guard and Coast Guard, as necessary. Additionally, the command is charged with providing defense support for civil authorities when approved by the President or Secretary of Defense. U.S. Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) also provides military resources and support to federal, state and local authorities.23

    According to the USNORTHCOM website, so far it “has not had to respond to a large scale threat calling for military intervention” in U.S. territory. It has primarily been used to respond to natural or manmade disasters, such as hurricanes, floods, wildfires, earthquakes and a massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, emphasizing that “the philosophy behind USNORTHCOM’s participation in defense support for civil authorities was to be prepared at all times but only to act when requested and to depart just as soon as their support was no longer required.”24

    The Feb. 12 DoD directives to the Navy and Marine Corps indicated that officials of U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) made the request to DoD and USNORTHCOM to get involved in anticipation of widespread coronavirus infections in the U.S. and that combatant commanders implementing DoD’s Global Campaign Plan for Pandemic and Infectious Diseases would be following directions from HHS and state and local public health officials.

    Post 9/11 Model State Emergency Health Powers Act
    After terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C. on September 11, 2001 (9/11), and subsequent reports of biological warfare threats against U.S. citizens, federal health officials immediately began preparing for mass anthrax and smallpox vaccination campaigns in the U.S. At the same time, model state legislation entitled the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act (MSEHPA) was introduced in multiple states to rewrite state public health laws and give federal and state public health officials sweeping new power over citizens when public health “emergencies” were declared by the Secretary of HHS and state governors.

    The CDC had given Professor Lawrence Gostin, PhD, of the Center for Law and the Public’s Health at Georgetown and Johns Hopkins University, funding to develop the model legislation, which is why MSEHPA could be quickly introduced in the states the month after 9/11.25 Among its provisions, MSEHPA gave power to public health officials to:

    take control of all roads leading into and out of cities and states;
    seize homes, cars, telephones, computers, food, fuel, clothing, firearms and alcoholic beverages for their own use (and not be held liable if these actions result in the destruction of personal property);
    arrest, imprison and forcibly examine, vaccinate and medicate citizens without consent (and not be held liable if these actions result in death or injury).
    The ACLU and other NGO’s defending civil liberties,26 27 including the National Vaccine Information Center,28 29 opposed the MSEHPA for giving too much power to government health officials to detain, isolate and force vaccination and other medical interventions on citizens without their voluntary informed consent.30 The ACLU described the proposed model legislation as being “replete with civil liberties violations” and failing to “adequately protect citizens against the misuse of the tremendous powers that it would grant [government health authorities] in an emergency.”31

    In August 2002, Professor Gostin and his colleagues at Georgetown and Johns Hopkins Universities argued for compulsory quarantine and treatment of individuals in an article for the Journal of the American Medical Association:32

    Coercive powers are the most controversial aspects of any legal system… There similarly may be a need to exercise powers over individuals to avert a significant threat to the public’s health. Vaccination, testing, physical examination, treatment, isolation, and quarantine each may help contain the spread of infectious diseases. Although the vast majority of people probably will comply willingly (because it is in their interests and/or desirable for the common welfare), some compulsory powers are necessary for those who will not comply.

    In 2003, Gostin replied to critics of the MSEHPA, pointing out that “The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) in Healthy People 2010, similarly argued that strong laws are a vital component of the public health infrastructure and recommended that states reform their outdated statutes.” He defended restraint of individual liberty in service to the public health: “When government acts to preserve the public’s health, it can interfere with property rights (e.g., freedom of contract, to pursue a profession, or to conduct a business) or personal rights (e.g., autonomy, privacy, and liberty). The history of public health is littered with illustrations of trade offs between public health and civil liberties.” 33

    Gostin questioned American values about “personal and proprietary freedoms” at the turn of the 21st century that opposed “substantial government presence in social and economic life,” and he expressed the opinion that 9/11 “reawakened the political community to the importance of public health:”

    American values at the turn of the 21st century fairly could be characterized as individualistic. There was a distinct orientation toward personal and proprietary freedoms and against a substantial government presence in social and economic life. The attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon and the anthrax outbreaks reawakened the political community to the importance of public health. Historians will look back and ask whether September 11, 2001 was a fleeting scare with temporary solutions or whether it was a transforming event.

    By 2011, 44 states had passed some form of the MSEHPA.34

    After 9/11 Congress Gave More Power to Executive Branch
    After 9/11, immediately there were allegations that terrorists possessed weaponized smallpox and anthrax that could be used against the U.S. mainland population. Pressure was placed on Congress to create legislation to protect the American public from future bioterrorism attacks. Congress passed and President George W. Bush signed a series of new laws between 2002 and 2006 that gave expanded powers to the Executive Branch of the federal government and especially strengthened the authority of HHS during declared public health emergencies that involve disease control.

    The Homeland Security Act of 200235 created the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which assumed authority over existing federal agencies, including the U.S. Coast Guard, Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), U.S. Immigration and Customs Service (ICE), U.S. Secret Service, Transportation Security Administration (TSA), among others. DHS works closely with HHS to respond to public health emergencies.

    The National Vaccine Information Center opposed certain provisions in the Homeland Security Act of 2002.36

    The Project Bioshield Act of 2004 (“Bioshield 1”)37 38 and Pandemic and All Hazards Preparedness Act of 2006 (“Bioshield 2”)39 40 set up and funded a public-private financial partnership between private pharmaceutical companies and HHS to research and develop bioterrorism and pandemic vaccines for use by U.S. civilian populations. The 2006 Act amended the Public Health Service Act to require the Secretary of HHS to lead all federal public health and medical response to public health emergencies.

    The National Vaccine Information Center opposed sections of the 2004 and 2006 Bioshield legislation, calling for responsible congressional oversight on expanded authority granted to federal public health officials by Congress after 9-11.41 42

    In the 2004 Bioshield Act, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) was given an Emergency Use Authorization (EUA)43 that allows experimental drugs and vaccines designated as medical countermeasures (MCM) to be fast tracked to licensure during a federally declared public health emergency. The Pandemic and All Hazards Preparedness Act of 2006 established the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) under HHS as the central point of authority within the federal government responsible for conducting advanced research to develop civilian medical countermeasures in collaboration with the pharmaceutical industry.

    BARDA is shielded from Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests. Drug companies are shielded from liability if the drugs or vaccines developed for and used in HHS declared public health emergencies cause injury or death and so are persons forcing civilians to use the products.44

    In 2019, Congress passed The Pandemic and All-Hazards Preparedness and Advancing Innovation Act, strengthening the original 2006 Act.45 This new law increased funding for HHS programs and BARDA research to develop genetically engineered vaccines to respond to emerging pandemics and antimicrobial resistance.46

    In addition, the government’s official “isolate and quarantine” list was expanded between 2003 and 2014 to include Viral Hemorrhagic Fevers, such as Ebola, and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS),47 adding pandemic influenza in 2005.48 In 2014, the Presidential Executive Order did not name a specific disease that would warrant detention and quarantine, it simply described “diseases associated with fever and signs and symptoms of pneumonia or other respiratory illness” that have “the potential to cause a pandemic” or are “highly likely to cause mortality or serious morbidity if not properly controlled.”49

    In 2016, using rule making authority to amend the Public Health Service Act, HHS expanded their police powers to apprehend individuals or their minor children entering the U.S. or traveling across state borders by airplane, ship, bus or train, and isolate or involuntarily quarantine them if they have minor symptoms of illness that could indicate “they are or may become infected with quarantinable infectious diseases.”50 In a public comment to HHS, the National Vaccine Information Center opposed sections of the proposed amendment giving HHR more power to detain, involuntarily quarantine and compel individuals to submit to vaccination as condition for release:51

    Health officials in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), have more than enough authority under the U.S. Constitution and the Public Health Service Act to prevent the introduction, transmission and spread of a short list of serious communicable diseases with very high mortality rates, such as hemorrhagic fevers. However, this NPRM makes a point of equating non-quarantinable vaccine-targeted diseases, such as measles and chickenpox, with quarantinable diseases, such as tuberculosis and smallpox. It expands the list of minor illness symptoms that could trigger the use of police power by government health officials to apprehend and involuntarily quarantine individuals, who can be asked to consent to vaccination as a condition of release from government custody.

    Microsoft News: Coronavirus Vaccine Will Eliminate Need for Quarantines
    On Feb. 6, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation announced that it is pledging up to $100 million to combat coronavirus and “help find a vaccine for the virus, limit its spread and improve detection and treatment of patients.” Immediately, $20 million will go to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization.52 Since the Gates Foundation was established in 2000, with a primary goal of funding global public health initiatives, more than $3 billion has been given to fund global vaccination programs.53

    Microsoft News, which is owned by Microsoft, a corporation co-founded by Bill Gates, stated that a coronavirus vaccine would end quarantines:

    First appearing late December of 2019, the new coronavirus (called the COVID-19) managed to kill almost 1,400 people and infect several thousands more in Mainland China alone in a mere two months, putting people to pin their hopes on one of the most effective disease-fighting tools: a vaccine. Having one would mean that there would no longer be a need to quarantine people nor close off cities and monitor airports because people would be protected from the virus even before they get exposed.54"
