Why I Will Not Submit To Medical Martial Law


This article was written by Brandon Smith and originally published at Alt-Market.com
One of the most dangerous philosophical contentions even amongst liberty movement activists is the conundrum of government force and prevention during times of imminent pandemic. All of us at one time or another have had this debate. If a legitimate viral threat existed and threatened to infect and kill millions of Americans, is it then acceptable for the government to step in, remove civil liberties, enforce quarantines, and stop people from spreading the disease? After all, during a viral event, the decisions of each individual can truly have a positive or negative effect on the rest of society, right? One out of control (or “lone wolf”) citizen/terrorist could reignite a biological firestorm, so, should we not turn to government and forgo certain freedoms in order to achieve the greater good for the greater number?
If the government in question was a proven and honorable institution, then I would say pro-Medical Martial Law arguments might have a leg to stand on. However, this is not the case. In my view, medical martial law is absolutely unacceptable under ANY circumstances, including Ebola, in light of the fact that our current government will be the predominant cause of viral outbreak. That is to say, you DO NOT turn to the government for help when the government is the cause of the problem.
The recent rise of global Ebola is slowly bringing the issue of medical martial law to the forefront of our culture. Charles Krauthammer at The Washington Post recently argued in favor of possible restrictions on individual and Constitutional liberties in the face of a viral pandemic threat.
The CDC now argues that in the case of people who may be potential carriers, or even in the case of people who refuse to undergo screenings, it has the legal authority to dissolve all constitutional protections and essentially imprison (quarantine) an American citizen for as long as they see fit to do so.
The Obama Administration is now using militant terminology in reference to Ebola response, including the formation of “Ebola SWAT Teams” for quick reaction to potential outbreak areas.
In typical socialist fashion, the nurses union ‘National Nurses United’ has called for Barack Obama to use “executive authority” to take control of all Ebola response protocols in hospitals across the country. Yet another perpetuation of the myth that more government power is the solution.
And finally, the Department of Defense has been tasked to create a military controlled “quick-strike team” to deal with Ebola within U.S. borders. This team will be under the command of none other than Northcom, apparently trampling the Posse Comitatus Act and setting the stage for the rationalized use of military personnel against U.S. citizens under the guise of pandemic prevention.
It should be clear to anyone with half a brain that medical martial law is being quietly prepared, and that the threat of such measures is not a paranoid conspiracy, but a very real possibility. It should also be noted that such provisions are not only the products of the Obama Administration. It was George W. Bush who first created laws intersecting with the World Health Organization’s pandemic preparedness planning. These laws include the “overrule of existing legislation or (individual) human rights” in order to quell a viral outbreak, and were originally drafted around the potential of an influenza crisis.
It is this kind of executive overreach that has set precedence for states such as Connecticut to announce a tentative state of emergency with medical martial law restrictions.
I discussed in great detail why Ebola works in favor of establishment elites in my article‘An Ebola Outbreak Would Be Advantageous For Globalists’.
Understand that bureaucrats will come to you with promises of offering a helping hand, hoping that you are afraid enough to accept, but their intentions will not be compassionate. Rather, their intent will be to assert as much dominance over the public as possible during the chaos, and to erase any conception the people may have had in the past that they have inalienable rights.
But going beyond the hidden motives of tyrants, I think it is important to point out that the Center for Disease Control and the federal government in general has already lost all credibility in dealing with Ebola, and therefore, it has lost any authority it may have had in administrating a future response.
Ebola has been officially known to the CDC for over thirty years. Why has the CDC refused for three decades to produce proper care guidelines for hospitals? Medical staff in the U.S. didn’t even receive guidelines when the outbreak in Western Africa was obviously progressing out of control.
Why did the CDC leave Thomas Duncan, the very first U.S. Ebola case, in the hands of the Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital, without proper procedures in place to prevent further infection, and without a CDC team present? The CDC has an annual budget of nearly $7 billion. Where is all of this money going if not to stamp out such threats as Ebola?
The argument presented by the White House, the CDC, and even the World Bank, has been that stopping direct or indirect travel from nations with an Ebola outbreak would be “impractical”, and that such travel bans would somehow “make matters worse”. They have yet to produce a logical explanation as to how this makes sense, but what if we did not need to institute a travel ban? The CDC, with it’s massive budget, could easily establish quarantine measures in infected countries. Anyone wishing to travel outside of these nations would be welcome to do so, as long as they voluntarily participate in quarantine procedures for a set number of days. No quarantine, no plane ticket. Where has the CDC response been in Western Africa?
Why not use minor and measured travel restriction in Africa today, instead of using unprecedented martial law in America tomorrow? It makes no sense, unless, of course, the plan is to allow Ebola to spread…
Why has the White House nominated Ron Klain, a man who knows absolutely NOTHING about Ebola or medical emergency strategies, as the new “Ebola Czar”?
Why has all discussion on Ebola prevention revolved around government measures rather than community measures?  Why has all talk centered on what the government will do AFTER an outbreak occurs, rather than on what can be done to prevent an outbreak in the first place?
The reality is that the federal government does not have any treatments for Ebola that are outside of the knowledge and capabilities of the average medically trained citizen. Meaning, the government and the CDC are NOT needed for a community to handle an Ebola outbreak, if that community is given proper guidelines and strategies in advance. Treatment for Ebola, at least in first world nations, consists primarily of regimented transfusions. These transfusions are a mixture of isotonic saline, electrolytes, and plasma, designed to keep the body supported until it’s immune system can build up a proper defense to the virus. Natural and homeopathic methods can also boost immune system functions making the body resistant to the virus before it is ever contracted. The most effective of all treatments appears to be the transfusion of blood from a recovering patient with anti-bodies into a newly sick patient. This is likely the reason for the quick recovery of infected doctors like Kent Brantly.
The CDC would never be able to coherently organize a large scale program of transfusion initiatives, even if it wanted to. Most hospitals around the country have no isolation wards able to handle even a minor Ebola outbreak. The hospitals that do have facilities are limited to less than a dozen beds. According to the medical workers I have spoken with, most hospitals require a minimum of around 50 health professionals to deal with a single Ebola patient.  In the event of an outbreak larger than a few people per state, the CDC and local hospitals are simply not equipped to react to the problem.  Blood transfusions from recovering donors would be few and far between, unless organized by local citizens working under their own directives.
Ironically, it was the Bush Administration’s own report in 2006 on the possibility of bird flu pandemic that admitted the government is completely unequipped to handle an outbreak of moderate size. The report stated that “all sources of external aid may be compromised during a pandemic,” and that “local communities will have to address the medical and non-medical effects of the pandemic with available resources.” Little has changed in the federal government’s pandemic preparations since the report was written.
This leaves individual communities to either prepare for the worst, or die off while waiting for the government to save them. Self isolation and self treatment are the only practical options.
The greatest danger to American citizens is, in fact, not the Ebola virus, but government reactions to the Ebola virus. Already, several medical outfits around the world are suddenly interested in producing an Ebola vaccination when no one seemed very interested before. This might sound like good news, until you learn the terrible history of modern vaccinations.
Pharmaceutical company Merck was caught red handed faking vaccine efficacy data. Merck’s Gardisil was found to contain DNA fragments of human papillomavirus.
Glaxosmithkline, a major vaccine producer, has been caught repeatedly attempting to bribe doctors and health professionals into promoting their products or outright lying about their effectiveness. Glaxo was caught producing rotavirus vaccinations tainted with a swine virus in 2010. Glaxo has been caught producing vaccines tainted with bacteria and endotoxins.
It is important to point out that Glaxo is also spearheading an Ebola vaccine initiative.
U.S. company Baxter produced a flu vaccination in Austria tainted with both avian flu and swine flu. The mixture just happened to be randomly tested on a group of ferrets by a lab in the Czech Republic. The test animals died. The exposure of this “mix up” was quietly swept under the rug by Baxter and the mainstream media, but reports indicate that if the vaccine had been used on the general population, a terrible pandemic would have erupted.
Beyond the fact that vaccinations have a tendency to cripple our natural immune system and infect patients with the very disease they are meant to prevent, none of these existing companies can be trusted to produce a vaccine that is safe even by traditional pharmaceutical standards (which are very low). If the CDC and the federal government trigger a medical martial law scenario, they will most likely include forced vaccination of the population to maintain “herd immunity”. The bottom line? The use of such vaccines will be a death sentence for many, a death more certain than the contraction of Ebola. In my opinion, Ebola vaccination should be avoided at all costs by the American populace.
I can think of no rationale for government involvement in the treatment of an Ebola outbreak. If it is not pure incompetence on their part that has exacerbated the threat, then even worse, it is a deliberate program of genocide. In either case, no military or CDC “strike teams” should be allowed free reign in our neighborhoods, towns, counties, or states. DHS and FEMA Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) are also a no go, given FEMA’s track record of dismal disaster response. They CANNOT be allowed to take control of our communities.
The only way for Americans to survive such an event is to cut out government entirely and establish their own medical strategies, as organizations like the Oath Keepers Community Preparedness Teams (CPT) are doing.
If someone wants to voluntarily go to the CDC or FEMA for assistance, then they should be allowed to take that risk. However, medical martial law over all of us in the name of the “greater good” should not be tolerated. The government has proven beyond a doubt that it is not qualified to handle a viral crisis scenario, let alone determine what the “greater good” actually is. I can’t speak for the whole of the Liberty Movement, but as for myself, if a group of hazmat suited thugs decides to chase me down with a syringe, I am relatively certain none of them will live through the encounter.
Will I be accused of aiding the spread of Ebola because of my non-compliance? Of course. Do I care? Not so much. Each individual American will have to make their own decision on this matter in due course. Is it better to conform and risk annihilation at the hands of an ignorant and/or corrupt government, or, to fight back and be labeled a bio-terrorist? With the clear lack of tangible government preventions for outbreak in the U.S., you’ll probably get your chance to find out soon enough.

US Government Hypocrisy At Its Finest!

Hmmmmm...hypocrisy at it's finest! The government outlaws marijuana saying it has no medical benefits...yet it holds a patent on the cannabinoids of the marijuana plant for treating neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and stroke, and diseases caused by oxidative stress, such as heart attack, Crohn’s disease, diabetes and arthritis. Our own government LIES to us and then patents one of the most beneficial plants extract known to mankind so that it can keep it from us regular Joes and Janes! Isn't it about time we tell our elected leaders that they need to stop this hypocrisy and legalize this awesome NATURAL plant?

What is Patent No. 6630507?

us-marijuana-patent-2
The patent claims exclusive rights on the use of cannabinoids for treating neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and stroke, and diseases caused by oxidative stress, such as heart attack, Crohn’s disease, diabetes and arthritis.
Cannabinoids are a diverse class of compounds that include many of the unique compounds found in marijuana. A number of experts, including CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta, have noted the contradiction between federal marijuana law and the government’s patent.
“The United States government owns a patent on marijuana as a medical application… So we have a patent through our Department of HHS on marijuana as a therapeutic and we also schedule it as a Schedule I.”
It is easy to think of the patent as a patent on marijuana itself. However, this would be inaccurate, since the patent actually covers non-psychoactive cannabinoids (both synthetic and natural), meaning those that don’t cause a high.
The patent also covers only a specific application of these cannabinoids and not the production or use of marijuana and cannabinoids overall.

The Invention

The patent claims to “provide a new class of antioxidant drugs, that have particular application as neuroprotectants.”
According to the description, the inventors recognized “a previously unanticipated antioxidant property of the cannabinoids in general (and cannabidiol in particular).” Importantly, the patent does not cover cannabinoids that act through cannabinoid pathways, also known as receptors.
“This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases. The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia.”

CBD and Non-Psychoactive Cannabinoids

us-patent-marijuana-3
The government’s patent does not cover THC, the main ingredient in marijuana. On the other hand, cannabidiol (CBD) is specifically mentioned as an example of a cannabinoid that is covered. The patent describes CBD and other non-psychoactive cannabinoids as superior when taken in higher doses.
“Nonpsychoactive cannabinoids, such as cannabidiol, are particularly advantageous to use because they avoid toxicity that is encountered with psychoactive cannabinoids at high doses.”
According to the description, CBD can be ingested in very large amounts without side effects.
“No signs of toxicity or serious side effects have been observed following chronic administration of cannabidiol to healthy volunteers, even in large acute doses of 700mg/day.”
The patent explains that cannabidiol previously had not been considered useful as a neuroprotectant. However, it cites various studies on cannabidiol as an antiepileptic and as a potential treatment for glaucoma. - Leaf Science

Gravity Water Filter Test Results

NaturalNews Insider Alert ( www.NaturalNews.com ) by Mike Adams
 The Health Ranger

After months of preparation and testing, we've finally posted the full results of our laboratory testing of gravity water filters.
Available now on www.WaterFilterLabs.com you can see the results for tests we conducted on Big Berkey, ProPur, Zen Water Systems, Crytal Drop, Doulton and other filters.
None of the manufacturers paid us for testing. All the tests were conducted independently and using ICP-MS laboratory instrumentation with parts per billion sensitivity.

Everybody needs a gravity water filter. It filters water without using electricity, making it reliable for use during all sorts of emergencies such as hurricanes, power grid failures, solar flares, EMP attacks and much more.
The top two filters found to be most effective in our tests were:
1) Big Berkey water filter with arsenic / fluoride filter elements
2) Zen Water Systems filters

See full lab test results at:

Not. Safe.

Ever since former Monsanto lawyer Michael Taylor co-authored the U.S. Food & Drug Administration’s (FDA) substantial equivalency policy, which said that genetically modified foods are no different than non-GMO foods, independent scientists (and consumers) have been skeptical. To say the least.
Now yet another new published review, by researchers at the University of Adelaide, Flinders University and the Institute of Health and Environmental Research supports, again, our long-held belief that there isn’t enough evidence to conclude that GMO crops are safe to eat.
What these scientists found may not surprise you. But it will probably get your blood boiling. After you’ve calmed down . . . this would be a great study to share with anyone who tells you GMO foods are “perfectly safe.”


Is the Boycott Strategy Working?


It’s boycott time again.
With less than two weeks to go before voters in Oregon and Colorado decide on ballot initiatives to require mandatory labeling of foods containing genetically modified organisms (GMOs), the Junk Food Giants are at it again.
According to the latest numbers provided by the pro-labeling campaigns (as of October 22, 2014), the opposition in Oregon has raised $16.5 million to defeat Measure 92, while opponents of Colorado’s Proposition 105 have raised $14.3 million.

Monsanto is the largest donor to both campaigns, with combined donations totaling approximately $8.8 million. While Dow has spent only $668,000 total in both states, DuPont Pioneer just yesterday dumped a whopping $3 million into the Colorado NO on Prop 105 war chest.
But apart from Monsanto, and now DuPont Pioneer, the most prolific donors to the campaigns intent on defeating the Oregon and Colorado GMO labeling initiatives have been large, multinational food corporations. Many of these corporations own organic and “natural” brands—brands we’ve been asking consumers to boycott ever since Big Food helped defeat Proposition 37, California’s citizen-led GMO labeling initiative, in 2012.
Has the boycott strategy worked?
Aside from a couple of exceptions, the “Traitor Boycott” clearly hasn’t kept Big Food from continuing to make anti-labeling campaign contributions. But there’s evidence that the reputations, and in some cases, revenues, of some of the natural and organic brands have suffered. And even more evidence to suggest that some of their parent companies, including big anti-labeling donors Coca-Cola and General Mills, are struggling to overcome declining profits and consumer distrust.
This much is clear: It’s time to step up the pressure on all of the brands owned by companies that are pouring millions of dollars into defeating your right to know.

No Evidence Required to Get on Obama’s Terrorist Watch List

Patriots And Politics
24618229_sAccording to The Intercept, the Obama administration has rubber-stamped new regulations that are part of a new government standard for surveillance.The new protocol that allows anyone to be placed on the terrorist watch list does not require “concrete facts,” nor does it need “irrefutable evidence” in order to place either Americans (or foreigners) on the list.


The document by which these findings were brought to the surface is known as the “March 2013 Watchlisting Guidance,” and is a 166-page document issued last year by the National Counterterrorism Center.

The Truth About Islam That Mainstream Media Won't Report

An Islamic ‘Inheritance': Muslim Sex Gangs Are Spreading Across The World


By Sonia Bailley, American Thinker – “Muslims groups around the world are crying Islamophobia and playing the victim card as horrific Islamic-motivated crimes, such as grooming and rape-gangs, rage on with impunity throughout the Western world, especially in Europe. Rape or grooming gangs, which are almost entirely Muslim, are committing a crime that is religiously mandated in Islamic doctrine.
Muslim grooming gangs have been operating unchallenged in Europe for over 20 years, especially in the UK, Holland, Sweden, Norway, Belgium, and France. These widespread and highly organized gangs continue to rape and pimp non-Muslim underage schoolgirls who are used as sex slaves and sometimes tortured or killed. Just recently, in mid-2013, British police arrested 45 mostly Muslim men (mainly Pakistani and Bangladeshi) in West Yorkshire belonging to the largest grooming gang uncovered in the UK.
Throughout Europe, gang members are being described as ‘Asians’, and not Muslim. Governments, police forces, social services, childcare agencies, the mainstream media, and even academics fear being falsely accused by leftists and Muslim groups of Islamophobia or ‘racism’ if they were to publicly identify the gangs as Muslim. In Britain, a detailed and comprehensive report will be issued next year illustrating the failure of the government to stop Muslim grooming gangs.
No country with a Muslim population is immune to grooming gangs. America is on the same path as Europe and trailing not too far behind. In fact, Muslim grooming gangs (mainly Somali) have already found their way to the streets of America. These gangs have been operating for over 10 years in Minnesota, Tennessee, Michigan, and Ohio. The largest grooming case in U.S. history was from Somali immigrant communities in Minneapolis (MN) and Nashville (TN), in which 29 Somali Muslims were indicted in 2010 for kidnapping, raping, and selling underage girls between 2000 and 2010.
Canada and Australia are also seeing their fair share of Muslim grooming gangs. But as with Europe, government agencies assume the politically-correct approach in insisting that Islam has nothing to do with this crime, and the mainstream media fails to report these gang members as being mainly Muslim. In doing so, the rape and exploitation of thousands more vulnerable schoolgirls are being facilitated. Also, many Muslim gang-rapes go unreported because the victims are too scared or embarrassed to report these crimes.
Why is this horrific global crime of child grooming a phenomenon that occurs mainly amongst Muslim immigrants from Islamic countries? As it turns out, this crime is religiously and politically motivated by Islamic doctrine, which calls for the capturing, raping, and prostituting of non-Muslim women and children after battle, as well as keeping or selling them as sex slaves. Mohammed himself was a slave-owner, and had sex slaves whom he captured in battle. He advised his male followers to imitate his example. In Islam, everything that Mohammed did must be emulated, as he is considered to be the exemplary leader, the perfect man.
Is it any wonder why many Muslims see nothing wrong with grooming or possessing sex slaves? Nor do they see anything immoral or illegal in committing other Islamic-motivated crimes, such as honour killing, female genital mutilation, mosque preachings that nourish homegrown terrorists, street prayer that blocks public streets, street killing of non-Muslims, suicide bombing or martyrdom, as well as homophobia and Jew-hatred.
All these acts are religiously mandated in the Koran and other Islamic doctrines that include the most venerated and reliable legal text Reliance of the Traveller. All acts are instances of Islamic or sharia law in action. There is no revulsion, shame, or guilt involved on the part of the perpetrator, because these actions are entirely acceptable and encouraged in Islam. They run contrary to Western culture, and go beyond merely disrupting the society’s public order and public peace that are essential for any civilized nation to survive.
Sharia acts such as grooming are part of a wider strategy to subjugate and destroy western civilization from within, and to establish Islam as the dominant world power. This is referred to as a ‘civilization-jihadist process’ in the Muslim Brotherhood’s 1987 Memorandum on the General Strategic Goal for the Brotherhood in North America. Subjugation of non-Muslims is what Mohammed intended when he ordered Muslims in Medina not to integrate into society after immigrating to their new place, but to form a separate body, to keep their own laws, and to make the host country comply with them. Immigration, too, is a religious obligation to expand Islam into new territories and establish its supremacy over all other religions through the enforcement of sharia acts on the host society.
Hence, Muslim grooming and other Islamic-motivated acts constitute sedition, treason, or acts of war, as they are carried out with the intention of eventually overthrowing the government and creating a global Islamic caliphate (or unified Islamic nation-state). The preservation of Western countries in which groomers have been made citizens is being threatened by their seditious acts of sharia. The Muslim grooming gangs, along with other perpetrators of sharia acts, need to be identified in the terms that define them — religion.
As the West continues to ignore the fact that most of the groomers are Muslims who view the West as the enemy to be conquered, sharia acts continue to chip away at European values with conviction and impunity. The strategy of undermining the West is operating at full speed in Europe. Americans, also in jeopardy of losing their traditional and cultural values, need only look across the pond to get an idea of what’s to come in their own country. There is a lesson to be learned from Europe: identify the gang-rape assailants in terms of their religion and suppress sharia now, or reap the consequences of sharia being enforced as a way of life, as evidenced in parts of Europe.” Source – American Thinker.
Flashback: Rape – It’s Another One Of Those ‘Islamic Principles’
All “good” Muslims must emulate the “prophet” of Islam. The “prophet” of Islam encouraged the rape of non-Muslim women and forced them into sex slavery as the spoils of war. In a rare, fleeting moment of honesty, Barack “You-Can-Keep-Your-Plan” Obama may have actually been telling the truth when he said that Islam had done so much over the centuries to shape the world — including in his “own country” …
