- As the governor of Wisconsin defies court orders
and exhibits imperious and law defying behavior, an article by Joseph
Mercola, entitled "Governors as Dictators" stands out with enhanced
relevant, not only for Wisconsin but for the country. For what Mercola
addresses in the article would suggest that the protests in Wisconsin are
not going deep enough, for they are not addressing laws on the Wisconsin
books already which make the threats to union rights pale in comparison.
- Dr. Mercola's article concerns the Model State Emergency
Health Powers laws that were pushed through state legislatures under George
Bush following 9/11 and the anthrax scare, though prepared long previous
to both. No matter what position one takes on 9/11 or the anthrax
scare, three things are evident. 1. Both events were highly
controversial from the beginning, required large scale investigations,
and there are calls now, even by investigators themselves, for
new investigatory commissions because of questioning not only
the original government accounts, but now the government investigations, and
in fundamental ways. 2. Fear arising from 9/11 led to
the US invading Iraq, the establishment of Homeland Security and the
Patriot Act - massive, ill-defined and unconstitutional powers for
the federal government - and to the CDC promoting the little noticed Model
State Emergency Health Powers legislation. 3. Fear arising
from 9/11 and the anthrax scare was instrumental in passage of that legislation,
which overturned existing public health laws in each state and enacted
far reaching powers around medical emergencies and bioterrorism that
parallel the Patriot Act in their extreme unconstitutionality, giving that
power this time to governors.
- Governor Walker's defiance of legal constraints placed
by the court makes investigating the powers that Bush had inserted into
state laws for governors highly relevant because all that it would
require to trigger those powers is an emergency. "Emergency"
was the essence of both 9/11 and the anthrax scare, and it is precisely
to find out whether those emergencies were promulgated (staged) that additional
investigations are being called for with both calls based on distrust of
original government agencies' accounts and then of the investigations which
government agencies ran and controlled.
- That is, the pandemic preparedness laws in Wisconsin
can go into effect based on an emergency declared by government agencies
which are still under suspicion around the very two terrorizing events
that were the sole basis of the pandemic laws in the first place, events
that themselves were immediately questioned and gave rise to formal investigations,
and the government investigations themselves now also questioned, even
in the 9/11 case, by commissioners who participated.
- The 2009 H1N1 pandemic is precisely the sort of event
that could be used to make the state laws operative in all their power,
which would give Governor Walker true dictatorial powers. Yet it
has been shown in investigations by both CBS news and the EU parliament,
to have been fake (and corruptly so), and to have moved forward on the
US based on the CDC reporting 80-98% false data, (it is also the CDC
which first began promoting the state emergency health laws.). Yet immediately after
the falseness of any H1N1 "pandemic" was exposed by CBS, the
president declared a full blown "emergency", with military
implications. That emergency has never been removed. It rests
on the mildest flu in recorded medical annals, but which Sibelius at HHS
has "extended" until 2012. She cannot maintain a
medical condition by law (the flu is long over), but she has
continued the legal justification for maintaining ground troops on the
ground in the US.
- What powers do these laws, predicated on an ill-defined
emergency that is easily declared, includes no proof of evidence, and can
be extended on no medical ground, contain?
- Within weeks after the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001,
the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) began promoting health
policy legislation that dramatically suspends civil rights during declared
state of biological emergency. The text of the Model State Emergency Health
Powers Act (MSEHPA) gives public health officials and governors of the
several states the power to arrest, transport, quarantine, drug and vaccinate
anyone suspected of carrying a potentially infectious disease. The
Boston Globe originally broke the October 31, 2001. The story was
almost immediately forwarded to medical freedom activists throughout the
country who responded en masse in outspoken opposition to the proposal.
The article was quickly removed fromThe Globe's website. http://farmwars.info/?p=1243
- And what could Governor Walker do with them?
- Under the proposed law, one case of smallpox or swine
flu in a public school could trigger authorities to urge a governor to
declare a state of emergency. Once such is declared, the U.S. Constitution,
Bill of Rights and most cherished civil liberties will be immediately suspended
in addition to states being empowered to take immediate possession of private
property under the doctrine of eminent domain. ...
- Under the Mandatory Medical Examinations section (502)
of the law, persons refusing to submit to medical examinations and/or testing
are liable for misdemeanors and forced isolation. If public health authorities
suspect individuals may have been exposed to broadly defined infectious
diseases, or otherwise pose a risk to public health, officials may issue
detainment orders. In the case of an urban attack, or even one suspected,
possibly thousands of people could be marshaled into isolation camps, according
to the law.Â In this case, physicians, assisted by police, will
be required to perform state medical examinations and tests.
- Under the law, "infectious diseases" are very
broadly defined. "An infectious disease may, or may not, be transmissible
from person to person, animal to person, or insect to person," the
authors explain in the text.
- Section 504 of the Act details vaccination and treatment
protocols. Following these mandates, public health authorities may compel
people to be inoculated and/or drugged with any medicaments selected by
the state. Individuals refusing to be vaccinated or treated would be liable
for a misdemeanor, subject to police arrest, isolation or quarantine.
- Section 807 repeals existing state laws that are in conflict
with the Act. Under this part, for instance, previous laws granting medical,
religious, or philosophical exemptions to vaccination would be repealed.
- The laws do not depend on either a contagious disease
being present or on proof of any emergency, only on the declaration of
- What accountability is there?
- [Sections quoted below come from "Model Emergency
Health Powers Act (MEHPA) Turns Governors into Dictators" by
Joseph Mercola unless otherwise indicated.]
- If the State does more harm than good through unfettered
use of its draconian power, it can rely on the state immunity clause:
- "Neither the State, its political subdivisions,
nor, except in cases of gross negligence or willful misconduct, the Governor,
the public health authority, or any other State official referenced in
this Act, is liable for the death of or any injury to persons, or damage
to property, as a result of complying with or attempting to comply with
this Act or any rule or regulations promulgated pursuant to this Act."
- Article VIII Section 804.
- Note that the law would grant certain immunities even
for deaths improperly caused, and allows such immunity even for advisors
who made recommendations based on conflicts of interest.
- Beginning first with the health side, and with more detail,
the laws include forced diagnostic testing (unlimited in character), forced
taking of bodily samples (unlimited as to what is taken), forced unknown,
untested "medical" treatments, forced decontamination with unknown,
untested chemicals, and forced unknown, untested vaccines. Pulled
from any context of "emergency," this comprises two things,
description of forced medical experimentation on anyone in Wisconsin
(or any other state) and criminal physical assault. Refusal can include
- The laws overturn all exemptions for vaccines, even medical
exemptions that were given to protect people allergic to them who would
die if given them. The laws replaced long-standing constitutional
public health laws that included the option to self-quarantine, the
historic and most relied upon of public health options in an epidemic.
Instead, quarantining would be forced and into public facilities
if someone refuses to submit to intimate and potentially life-threatening
physical assault. Under the CDC promoted state health power laws,
quarantine is indistinguishable from imprisonment for not complying with
forced medical procedures - procedures based on no proven medical emergency
and not requiring an infectious disease even exist.
- Anyone refusing these state-forced medical actions, could
be herded together in detainment centers or prison, ideal setting for spreading
disease and terrible settings for medical help if one becomes infected
- Article V Section 504(b). Although it might in some
circumstances be prudent and justified to quarantine a person who refuses
immunization during an outbreak, it is tyrannical to criminalize the medical
choice to decline a treatment.
- An immunization or treatment might well cause serious
harm to certain individuals even if the public health authority does not
recognize that it is "reasonably likely" to lead to "serious
harm"-another two important undefined terms. Article V Section
- The Act gives the public health authority the right to
isolate or quarantine a person on an ex parte court order, with no hearing
for at least 72 hours. If the public health authority decides that an unvaccinated
person is a risk to others, even if uninfected, he could be quarantined.
- Article V Section 503(e). It is quite possible that public
health authorities could force such a person from his home to a place of
quarantine, where he will be exposed to infected persons. Such places shall
be maintained in a safe and hygienic manner "to the extent possible,"
and "all reasonable means shall be taken to prevent the transmission
of infection among isolated or quarantined individuals."
- Article V Section 503(a). The Act itself thus implies
that an uninfected person is at risk by being placed in such a facility;
it is quite likely that he could be at greater risk than if he had the
freedom to protect himself as he saw fit. It is assumed that public health
authorities will be "reasonable"; however, this assumption is
- How would the emergency that would trigger any of this
be declared? How is it defined?
- Declaring an Emergency: Under this Act, any Governor
could appoint himself dictator by declaring a "public health emergency."
He doesn't even have to consult anyone.
- The Act requires that he "shall consult with the
public health authority," but "nothing in the duty to consult
... shall be construed to limit the Governor's authority to act without
such consultation when the situation calls for prompt and timely action."
- The legislature is prohibited from intervening for 60
days, after which it may terminate the state of emergency only by a two-thirds
vote of both chambers. (Apparently, it does not have the authority to find
that the state of emergency never really existed.) Article III, Section
305(c). There is also the possibility that the Governor could declare a
new emergency as soon as his powers were about to expire.
- What is a public health emergency? It is whatever the
Governor decides it should be. By the definition in the Act, it could be
an "occurrence"-or just an "imminent threat"-of basically
any cause that involves a biological agent or biological toxin that poses
a "substantial risk" of a "significant number" of human
fatalities or disability. Article I, Section 104(g). Terrorism need
not be involved; any threat of an epidemic would suffice. ....
- What kind of power would the governor have? And
under such a law, what limits could be placed on Governor Walker?
- Unlimited Power: How would the Governor handle the
emergency? By whatever means he chose. He is under no obligation to use
scientifically valid methods, or to choose the least destructive method,
or to perform any kind of risk-benefit analysis.
- He may suspend any regulatory statute, or the rules of
any state agency, if they would "prevent, hinder, or delay necessary
action."Article III, Section 303(a)(1). Among the laws to be suspended
would probably be those permitting religious, medical, or philosophical
exemptions to mandatory vaccines.
- The Governor may not only utilize all the resources of
the State and its political subdivisions, but commandeer any private facilities
or resources considered necessary, and "take immediate possession
thereof. Such materials and facilities include, but are not limited to,
communication devices, carriers, real estate, fuels, food, clothing, and
health care facilities."
- Taking possession of "communication devices,
carriers, real estate, fuels, food, clothing, and health care facilities"
describes martial law.
- The governor, by such a law, would not be taking control
of "communication devices" such as cell phones, but of all communications
in the state. "Carriers" are all transportation, "real
estate" is all property and land, "fuels" are all utilities
as well as oil, gas, coal, water (used for hydro-electric power), private
solar power, wind power, water power; "food" is all food in the
state including farms, privately stored food, any businesses that produce
or provide food; and "health care facilities" could include any
place where they may assert that "health" measures are being
taken, which could include prisons and detainment camps. (Why would
clothing be listed?)
- Doctors and health workers would be compelled to comply.
- Article IV Section 402(a). He may "compel a health
care facility to provide services," but it is not clear what means
he may use to compel its personnel to work (Article IV Section 402(b)),
except that any physician or other health care provider who refuses to
perform medical examination or testing as directed shall be liable for
a misdemeanor. Article V Section 502(b).
- What of legislative laws and funding as an obstacle to
putting any of this in place?
- The Act grants Governors the exclusive power to control
the expenditure of funds appropriated for emergencies; the intent and priorities
set by the Legislature would be irrelevant.
- What of constitutional protections in terms of elections
and delegation of power?
- The Governor may delegate powers at his sole discretion
to unelected political appointees.
- On the property side, the mere declaration that a building
or property is contaminated would be grounds from destruction of the structure
(including by burning) and the appropriation of land, specifically true
of farmland, of which Wisconsin has some of the richest in the country.
- The Governor may destroy any material or property "of
which there is reasonable cause to believe that it may endanger the public
health." Article IV Section 401(b). And while the State shall
pay just compensation to the owner of any facilities that are "lawfully
taken" or appropriated (Article IV Section 406), there is a huge exception:
- "Compensation shall not be provided for facilities
or materials that are closed, evacuated, decontaminated, or destroyed when
there is reasonable cause to believe that they may endanger the public
health pursuant to Section 401." Article IV Section 406.
- The Governor is in charge of determining "reasonable
cause." There is a strong incentive for him to declare any losses
to private owners to be noncompensable.
- "Reasonable cause" might mean "contaminated."
Is the Senate Hart Office Building contaminated with anthrax? Yes. Should
it therefore be destroyed, or subjected to fumigation with chemicals that
would destroy much of the equipment and furnishings? Most think not.
- The problem is that given a sufficiently sensitive testing
method, everything is probably "contaminated" with almost everything
else. Moreover, every testing method has some level of false positives.
- The late Conrad Chester of Oak Ridge National Laboratory
stated that any place that has ever supported cattle has anthrax contamination
(lecture before Doctors for Disaster Preparedness annual meeting, 1996).
The same probably applies to any land that has supported sheep or goats,
or any land that has had the wind deposit soil from such an area.
- In other words, anthrax spores are probably ubiquitous,
though at a concentration that very rarely causes any harm. Such harm as
was done may have been misdiagnosed by physicians who were unfamiliar with
anthrax and not specifically looking for it. [Anthrax is easily treated.]
- Under this law, nothing would stop the Governor from
ordering a citizen to turn over his house to be used as an isolation facility
and later destroying the house on the grounds that it is contaminated [or
from appropriating farmland, also on the grounds it is contaminated]. This
order, like any other, could be enforced at gunpoint by any law enforcement
- The health power laws include seizure of arms.
- .... the Act empowers the Governor to ration, fix
prices, and otherwise control the allocation, sale, use, or transportation
of any item as deemed "reasonable and necessary for emergency response."
- This specifically includes firearms. Article IV
Section 402(c) and Section 405(b). Moreover, the Governor can simply seize
such items.Article IV Section 402(a).
- Rarely noted by those favoring gun control as a means
for public safety, Gandhi condemned the seizure of arms as the most terrible
thing the British did in their centuries of brutal rule in India.
- "Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in
India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms,
as the blackest."
- -- Mahatma Gandhi (An Autobiography or The story of my
experiments with truth, by M.K. Gandhi, p.238)
- Bush put in place international and intersecting agreements
around the War on Terror, a war that former National Security
Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski testified to the Senate that the war on
terror is "a mythical historical narrative," and one based on
a potentially promulgated attack on the US. The Model State Emergency
Health Power state laws also intersect with international agreements, most
specifically with the WHO and UN and were put in place during Bush's time
- Emergencies have value and even just looking at the state
emergency health powers in place, they create vast redundancy of power,
and connect state, the federal government, and international agencies backed
by military. In the way they are arranged, a emergency could easily
be declared which would trip off a cascading of unconstitutional events.
- "We are on the verge of global transformation. All
we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the new world
order." - David Rockefeller
- One quote, allegedly from the WHO 2005 declaration around
pandemics, gives some indication how (undefined) health authorities could
urge governors to declare a pandemic emergency and of the potential
danger such declaration (once again, with no definition or evidence
of proof) could have on the future of the US.
- "Under special pandemic plans enacted around the
world including the USA, in 2005, national governments are to be dissolved
in the event of a pandemic emergency and replaced by special crisis committees,
which take charge of the health and security infrastructure of a country,
and which are answerable to the WHO and EU in Europe and to the WHO and
UN in North America.
- As a side note, but one relevant to the forced vaccination
of people in each state, a series of vaccines, including the H1N1 (much
urged by the CDC onto pregnant women especially) contain the preferred
ingredient in a patent on a "fertility damaging vaccine." That
ingredient, polysorbate 80, is known as a sterilizing agent. Until
the patent was brought to light, suggesting it was meant to do harm would
have been filed under conspiracy theory. But with the patent clearly
designed to damage fertility and polysorbate 80 being preferred to accomplish
that damage, its presence in any vaccine, especially those being mandated,
becomes significant. It is some of the most controversial vaccines:
- in the H1N1 vaccine, though the pandemic was fake, and
the CDC said the vaccine could maim or kill 30,000 people; in the flu vaccine
(which contains the H1N1) being urged for the first time ever on the whole
population, though the science shows it is ineffective (yet it comes
with the same risk of maiming and death as the H1N1); the HPV vaccine (Gardasil)
for young girls for cervical cancer though cervical doesn't even occur
until a woman is in her 30's or 40s, is easy to catch early and treat,
and the vaccine manufacturers say the vaccine only lasts 5 years so young
girls would need to take it repeatedly. It is already maiming and
killing girls here and there is push in some states (one presumes by the
manufacturer, Merck, as they tried in Texas) to get it mandated; France
and the UK are banning advertising of it and India, based on deaths, has
banned it altogether; in the mandated HEP B vaccine for newborn babies,
a vaccine meant for IV drug users and for people with sexually transmitted
diseases. A newborn with an STD from its mother would need treatment,
not a vaccine, and the vaccine would be unnecessary since an infant does
do IV drugs or have sexual partners [According the head vaccine scientist
at Merck, the Merck HEP vaccine for gay men caused the AIDS epidemic in
the US and all their vaccines are filled with cancer and other viruses.
Video of Maurice Hillerman's interview]; and other vaccines which
are part of the mandated pediatric schedule. [All vaccines contain
many unknown viruses which cannot be removed. Interview with Dr.
- The certain knowledge now of a preferred harmful ingredient
being placed broadly in many vaccines that are being pushed or mandated
by the CDC should raise concerns about any mandates on vaccines. Through
the state health powers laws, unknown and untested vaccines could
be forced on an entire state (or states) even though vaccines routinely
kill a certain percentage of those given them, and they would definitely
kill people who are allergic.
- In being aware of the fertility damaging ingredient in
many vaccines now, the following information takes on added significance.
Last year, Bill Gates suggested that the new vaccines can lower
world population by 10-15% and the FDA added a new rule allowing
vaccine manufacturers to insert or change any ingredient with the approval
of a single employee at the FDA; in the last few weeks, the Supreme
Court has given the vaccine manufacturers total immunity from liability
and referred injured people to the Vaccine Compensation Court which does
not list infertility or sterility as vaccine injuries); at approximately
the same time as the Supreme Court ruling, Bill Gates went on TV and demonized parents
questioning vaccines' safety as killers of children; and at the present
time, the FDA is in court asserting the public has no fundamental right
to its bodily or physical health.
- It is in the context of all this that the suspicions
surrounding 9/11, the anthrax scare, and the falseness of the H1N1 pandemic
become especially relevant, and offer the gift of a warning about the use
of false events, and how those in government have used suspect events
to pass laws, laws written months before the pivotal events happened. Those
laws threaten the US as a nation, based solely on the declaration of an
emergency that doesn't need to be dangerous or even real. 9/11
and the anthrax scare expose that attacks and diseases and bio-terrorism
can be caused. Historically, such false attacks have been used to
take over countries, including taking over in Germany in the
- "Today America would be outraged if UN troops entered
Los Angeles to restore order. Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially
true if they were told that there was an outside threat from beyond, whether
real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that
all people of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The
one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario,
individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their
well being granted to them by the World Government." - Henry Kissinger,
1991 Bilderberg Conference. [Emphasis added.]
- [This video with a Finnish health minister about the
H1N1 vaccines, mentions Henry Kissinger's personal interest in them.]
- The Wisconsin public and legislature have been divided
over budgets and workers rights, but state health powers law presents a
common and much greater threat to each person personally and to their families.
It threatens lives. Seeing it and the danger it represents,
the Wisconsin public can demand it be repealed along with all mandated
medical procedures. Those laws are similar in their threat to the
Patriot Act and the Food Modernization Act and all can be looked at again,
with states removing laws that intersect with them, and putting in place
laws that specifically counter them with health sovereignty bills and
food and farm sovereignty bills and state sovereignty over federal
- The country has reason demand a formal investigation
of Bush and his connections and any involvement in WHO and UN plans
around pandemics, of CDC-promoted State Emergency Health Powers laws, and
of the insertion of fertility-damaging ingredients into vaccines which
are mandated to American children and being urged for all adults.
