The Department of Defense is putting plans in place to deploy military personnel throughout the country when not if the H1N1 (swine) flu takes off like a bat outta hell come the cooler weather of fall.
Understand that the plain ol’ regular flu that sweeps through the U.S. every winter takes the lives of some 35,000 people in this country yet we have never had the military roaming around in anticipation of having to assist civilian law enforcement and other authorities because of it. I wonder what is so special about this flu bug that the Obama administration feels the need to take this action? For the record, as of July 23 there have been a total of 302 deaths this year in the U.S. attributable to the H1N1 virus, a little less than the number of people who die in car wrecks in this country every three days.
The U.S. military wants to establish regional teams of military personnel to assist civilian authorities in the event of a significant outbreak of the H1N1 virus this fall, according to Defense Department officials.
The proposal is awaiting final approval from Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
The officials would not be identified because the proposal from U.S. Northern Command’s Gen. Victor Renuart has not been approved by the secretary.
The plan calls for military task forces to work in conjunction with the Federal Emergency Management Agency. There is no final decision on how the military effort would be manned, but one source said it would likely include personnel from all branches of the military.

Normally respiratory viruses such as flu do not circulate well at all during the hot summer months but this has been a remarkably cool summer for the most part around much of the U.S. such as in Chicago, Minnesota, Alaska, Tennessee, Iowa and many other states these last couple of months!
Ironic how this particular flu virus strikes during a summer that just so happens to be sporting some of the coolest temperatures in decades. Weird, almost like it was planned that way huh? I mean Al Gore has been running around like a rooster with it’s willy cut off for the last several years trying to convince the idiots among us that global warming means the end of the planet as we know it and yet here we have people all over America wearing long pants and sweaters in July.

The DoD plan is to have the military work alongside FEMA and civilian law enforcement during the certain outbreak of the H1N1 this fall much like they teamed up after Hurricane Katrina slammed into Louisiana back in 2004. Anybody remember what took place in New Orleans in the aftermath of the storm?
Certainly something to think about when the mandatory flu vaccination orders come down from Washington DC that’s for sure.
What’s that you say? You as an American citizen have decided to refuse any mandatory H1N1 vaccination because you fear the side effects of the “medication” over the actual flu itself?
Hey I’m with the folks not wanting any part of a vaccine ordered up by anyone in the Obama administration unfortunately there’s this 1905 U.S. Supreme Court case Jacobson v. Massachusetts lurking in the background. I know it refers to the states having the power to force vaccinations on the citizens but with the swipe of a pen an Obama executive order can make it a federal mandate in a heartbeat. Sure as hell doesn’t make it right though.
It is within the police power of a State to enact a compulsory vaccination law, and it is for the legislature, and not for the courts, to determine in the first instance whether vaccination is or is not the best mode for the prevention of smallpox and the protection of the public health.
This case involves the validity, under the Constitution of the United States, of certain provisions in the statutes of Massachusetts relating to vaccination.
The Revised Laws of that Commonwealth provide that “the board of health of a city or town if, in its opinion, it is necessary for the public health or safety shall require and enforce the vaccination and revaccination of all the inhabitants thereof and shall provide them with the means of free vaccination. Whoever, being over twenty-one years of age and not under guardianship, refuses or neglects to comply with such requirement shall forfeit five dollars.”

Perhaps you are concerned about receiving an H1N1 shot because of the avian flu virus being intentionally incorporated by a major flu bug vaccination manufacturer into a vaccination supply and distributed to several countries?
The company that released contaminated flu virus material from a plant in Austria confirmed Friday that the experimental product contained live H5N1 avian flu viruses.
And an official of the World Health Organization’s European operation said the body is closely monitoring the investigation into the events that took place at Baxter International’s research facility in Orth-Donau, Austria.
“At this juncture we are confident in saying that public health and occupational risk is minimal at present,” medical officer Roberta Andraghetti said from Copenhagen, Denmark.
“But what remains unanswered are the circumstances surrounding the incident in the Baxter facility in Orth-Donau.”
The contaminated product, a mix of H3N2 seasonal flu viruses and unlabelled H5N1 viruses, was supplied to an Austrian research company. The Austrian firm, Avir Green Hills Biotechnology, then sent portions of it to sub-contractors in the Czech Republic, Slovenia and Germany.
The contamination incident, which is being investigated by the four European countries, came to light when the subcontractor in the Czech Republic inoculated ferrets with the product and they died. Ferrets shouldn’t die from exposure to human H3N2 flu viruses.
Public health authorities concerned about what has been described as a “serious error” on Baxter’s part have assumed the death of the ferrets meant the H5N1 virus in the product was live. But the company, Baxter International Inc., has been parsimonious about the amount of information it has released about the event.
On Friday, the company’s director of global bioscience communications confirmed what scientists have suspected.
“It was live,” Christopher Bona said in an email.

Ain’t that grand.
Listen in as a man calls the Arkansas State Health Department and engages a government lawyer about this forced vaccination issue and what if any recourse he has available to avoid having to receive the H1N1 vaccination if so ordered by the feds.
Will it come down to police and military personnel banging on doors forcing people to be vaccinated if this flu pandemic goes down as it was surely planned? Who knows but I’ll bet anyone a sit down beer date with Obama that on August 20, 2005 the residents of New Orleans could never have imagined their homes would be invaded under orders of the government, that they would be forcibly removed from their property whether they were in danger of being flooded out or not and that they would have their firearms removed from their possession by fellow American citizens at gunpoint under the Bush administration.
That rumble we are feeling right now would be the Founding Fathers doing angry barrel rolls in their graves folks.
