Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has officially declared a 90-day state of emergency, and she told Associated Press that, “some civil liberties will be suspended”. The article went on to say, “In neighboring Sierra Leone, military forces also deployed as part of ‘Operation Octopus’ which officials said was aimed at preventing ‘the unauthorized movement of Ebola-infected persons.’”
This is martial law and in the case of Sierra Leone, martial law with a really creepy code name.
While the media seems hellbent on scaring the crap out of everyone by mentioning the word Ebola every other five seconds, there is actual useful information eeking out that we might want to glean here, in case anything like this should happen in our neighborhoods. You just have to wade through all the fear porn to get to it.
Let’s stick with this AP article for a second.
So, civil liberties will be suspended with military force. What else?
AP continues, “National Health Workers Association president Joseph Tamba said the state of emergency is necessary. But he says people should have been given advance notice to buy food ahead of the movement restrictions.”
So, civil liberties were suspended and they didn’t give the average person who isn’t prepper-minded adequate time to get prepared? …
People in West Africa are staying the hell away from the government “isolation” centers and hospitals. People there believe it’s a government conspiracy. How many Americans would (and do) feel the same way about what’s going on right now, knowing our very own Fort Detrick biowarfare scientists who just so happen to have been over in the Ebola hot zone in the main three Ebola-ravaged countries testing lab-grown monoclonal antibody cocktails on healthy human adults for several years now are staying pretty mum on the current situation?
In an outbreak scenario even as small as neighborhood-wide, would Daisy Luther be considered a “hold out” who refuses to go to a treatment center should vaccinations or isolation for this deadly disease become mandatory?
By executive order, our government currently has a laundry list of infectious diseases for which the CDC states it “has the legal authority to detain any person” who “may” be afflicted — including cholera, diphtheria, infectious tuberculosis, plague, smallpox, yellow fever, viral hemorrhagic fevers (like Ebola), SARS, and “new types of flu (influenza) that could cause a pandemic” — according to the CDC’s quarantine stations fact sheet dated August 2013.
Again, I want to stress the CDC says it can legally detain anyone if the person “may” have the disease, not if the person has officially, definitely been diagnosed with the disease in question. The fact sheet also says, “CDC also can have them admitted to a hospital or confined to a home for a certain amount of time to prevent the spread of disease.” It does not say this any of this will be voluntary or optional.
On top of that, the Pentagon is all over this experimental Ebola treatment being grown in tobacco cells that has just been approved for human testing.
As Jon Rappoport recently reported,
This “Blue Angel” project, as it’s called, suddenly puts the Pentagon in the forefront of the vaccine business. The big question is: why is the Army involved in vaccines at all? And the answer is no surprise. According to DARPA, it’s all about readiness in containing bio-threats. Translated, that means terrorist attacks that could use flu viruses.
This is a sinister development. It creates a potential scenario in which the military can invent the “bio-threat” and then step in and provide the solution. It doesn’t really matter whether the bio-threat is real or imaginary. …
