- Smallpox Gunmen Deputized to Secure Vaccination Areas:
Resistance Mounts to FEMA's Involvement in "Public Health" Plan
- Sandpoint, ID -Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)
officials are directing police chiefs nationwide to search local gun owner
records to identify and train civilian deputies to secure smallpox vaccination
sites. According to documents forwarded to civil rights groups by police
chiefs engaged in a growing smallpox vaccination resistance movement, the
plan calls for armed civilian security guards to maintain the peace in
every room the vaccine will be given.
- The FEMA directive is aimed to prevent violence at smallpox
"vaccination areas." It also effectively removes law enforcement
officials who oppose vaccination. "Police chiefs are now being pressured
to comply, get vaccinated, then promote the smallpox vaccine," said
one chief who requested anonymity. "They expect us to follow the 500,000
military personnel that began to receive the vaccine this week."
- The general public may be required to take the vaccine
immediately following the first reported case of smallpox, and after 10
million healthcare workers and emergency responders are vaccinated and
positioned to run the mammoth civilian program.
- FEMA officials were unavailable for comment regarding
their involvement in ordering one armed civilian "security staff"
to defend every two "vaccinators," including one "preferred"
registered nurse. These civilian volunteers are expected to administer
thousands of vaccines per day.
- "Authorities will claim this availability of lethal
force is meant to reduce risks and protect volunteers," said Ingri
Cassel, the director of Vaccination Liberation, a nationwide association
that has established dozens of local chapters to defend the legal right
to abstain from vaccinations. "We are seeing increasingly coercive
policies, allegedly for 'public health' and 'national security,' that dangerously
restrict civil rights and religious freedoms."
- Clinical trials on the largely unproven smallpox vaccine
are ongoing at Baylor University and three other sites. "That proves
the experimental nature of this entire program," said Dr. Leonard
Horowitz, a public health authority and bioterrorism expert who helped
establish a public information website all about smallpox. (http://www.allaboutsmallpox.com)
- Many medical and public health officials have serious
doubts about the expected benefits versus known health risks of this hurried
plan. A scientific consensus voted against this plan last summer, Dr. Horowitz
explained, referring to a series of governmental hearings that concluded
in June. "Forcing military and emergency personnel to receive a fifty-year-old
mixture of cow pus, mercury, and fetal calf serum, to adequately protect
against modern strains of smallpox, including those weaponized for mass
destruction, grossly violates common sense and medical ethics."
- "I've been vindicated," said Jack McLamb, a
retired military and police officer, and publisher of AID & Abet, a
police and military periodical. Officer McLamb has been persecuted for
years for openly criticizing the government while predicting that law officers
would be used to enforce coercive public health policies that attack civil
liberties and undermine religious freedoms. "My detractors laughed
when I said, 'Tyranny can not come to the home of any American unless it
comes in uniform.' Now no one is laughing anymore."
