Warning: CDC wants to quarantine and force vaccinate Americans for suspicion of infectious disease

Warning: CDC wants to quarantine and force vaccinate Americans for suspicion of infectious disease

(NaturalHealth365) On August 15, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) within the Health and Human Services Department published an NPRM – a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking – with the title “Rules for the Control of Communicable Diseases.”  This matter-of-fact, sensible-sounding title gives little clue to the bombshell hidden inside: a radical expansion of HHS and CDC powers into frightening new realms.

Under the proposed rules, these agencies could detain, force vaccinate and quarantine American citizens – indefinitely – all without due process. The NPRM provides for the apprehension and examination of any individual that the CDC reasonably believes to be “infected with a communicable disease in a qualifying stage.” The agency also must believe the individual is moving or about to move between states, or constitutes a probable source of infection to others who may be moving between states.

On closer inspection: The proposed CDC rules are even more alarming

For example: the “qualifying” stage can now include something called the “pre-communicable stage,” defined as “the beginning upon an individual’s earliest opportunity for exposure to an infectious agent.” Confusing and unwieldy language aside, what this really means is that the CDC can forcibly apprehend healthy people – people not showing symptoms, people who have not yet been medically examined – and detain them, meaning: take them into custody.
And they can do this with no process of appeal – an outrageous breach of liberty.

What it also means is that the HHS and CDC can issue federal orders to apprehend and examine individuals or groups moving between states – or who may come in contact with individuals planning to move between states. Because almost any action taken could be construed as somehow affecting interstate travel, the HHS has crafted an extremely wide net with which to harass citizens.

And the ultimate purpose of these enforced apprehensions and examinations? To determine whether the process should move to the next link in the chain; in other words, to determine whether quarantine, isolation or conditional release is warranted.

This unprecedented expansion of CDC powers carries vast potential for abuse

Due to vague and unclear wording, the NPPM’s regulations seem disturbingly open to varying interpretations. Without clearer definitions and limits, many natural health and personal freedom advocates fear the proposed rules could allow for the return of McCarthy-era persecution – in other words, witch hunts – this time with a medical twist.

Instead of using the old-fashioned bugaboos of treason, conspiracy and Communism – or the contemporary accusation of terrorism – the government could simply round up and detain troublesome or unpopular individuals – those with views contrary to the government’s, for instance. And, they could do it legally, on the grounds that these individuals are a threat to public health.

The eye-opening CDC list of quarantinable diseases

According to the HHS, the proposed rules were drafted in response to the largest Ebola outbreak in history, as well as the emergence of MERS – Middle East Respiratory Syndrome – in South Korea, along with repeated outbreaks of measles in the United States. “New or re-emerging communicable diseases” are also mentioned as a reason for this new power grab.

As examples of quarantinable communicable diseases, the NPRM lists cholera, diphtheria, infectious tuberculosis, plague, smallpox, yellow fever and viral hemorrhagic fevers such as Ebola and Lassa.

Hidden in that rogue’s gallery of frightening-sounding diseases is this phrase: severe acute respiratory syndromes. Could the CDC really be considering quarantining citizens suffering from the common cold?

Also on the list: influenza caused by novel or emerging viruses with the potential to cause a pandemic. Could exposure to the Zika virus, the dangers of which have already been grossly exaggerated by the CDC and the World Health Organization, also be used as a reason for quarantine?

Is the following scenario really that much of a stretch?

You – or your whole street, neighborhood or city – have officially been declared “pre-communicable,” in spite of showing no symptoms, and in spite of not having been medically examined. It is enough for someone to say that they suspect you, or your neighbors, had an opportunity for exposure to a quarantinable disease. You are then apprehended and detained – to eventually be given an order of isolation, an order of quarantine, or a conditional release.

The CDC claims that due process will be maintained: that the reasons for the order must be explained, that an administrative process for appealing it must be in place, and that there must be a mandatory reassessment of the order.

What’s the catch? The appeal process doesn’t come in until the third step – the quarantine, isolation or conditional release phase.

Therefore, you can be detained indefinitely.

In a clumsy attempt to build trust, the agencies may ask that you sign a “voluntary agreement,” requiring that you consent to a wide menu of possible abuses, including quarantine, isolation, conditional release, medical examination, hospitalization, vaccination and treatment. But if you break the voluntary agreement, you could be subject to criminal prosecution – so how “voluntary” is it?

Even being offered a “conditional release” can carry an onerous burden, and involve outrageous violations of privacy and autonomy.

It turns out that a conditional release involves being kept under surveillance. The proposed regulations authorize radically expanded forms of public health monitoring through invasive electronic and internet-based means. Texts, video conferencing, emails, and webcams can all be utilized. The agencies could even resort to electronic tracking devices – ankle bracelet, anyone?

Let the CDC know how you feel about these egregious violations of liberty and privacy
