Again, a government official told me that they thought the entire country would be under shut down for a week confinement period and that we might only be one to two weeks away from this happening.
...how did the Chinese acquire this very sophisticated bioweapon that defies description and categorization? The answer is that America interests gave it them. Ft. Dietrich and DARPA are two prime suspects.

Defies description and categorization? That's pure bunk. It's almost identical to known corona viruses.
Essentially, the scientists found that yes, there are some additions in the nCoV coronavirus originating in Wuhan that other coronaviruses don’t have, which are similar to pieces of sequence found in HIV. But, the kicker here is that these pieces of genetic code are also found in countless other viruses and there’s no reason to believe they specifically came from HIV, at all.
You say all that, but we all know the Federal government only follows their own laws out of curtousy. They break whichever law whenever it suits them. Is it unconstitution? It'll be over by the time SCOTUS rules on anything. Besides, for every law restricting their authority there is another somewhere hidden in the bottomless pit of jargon that gives them the loophole.

I recieved this text from a good friend today.
"Hey guys, not sure how real this is but my mom sent me this last night(Rick is her bf in case you forgot) just wanted to give you guys a heads up in case it is real and people start wiggin out when the CDC announces it and it's too late to get anything. Don't forget pet supplies too".
This is from Rick.
To my friends,
I apologize for this late hour text, but I want to share what my niece sent to my family tonight. (First a little background on her) she has a combined twenty plus years between serving in the Army, working at the Pentagon, and the DOD in Seoul Korea, and she still has many friends currently in the government & military. I’m not an alarmist, but I would feel bad if my friends were not prepared & I could have warned them ahead of time. Do what you want with this information. The following from Crystal:
I have heard from valid contacts (my friends who work at CDC & Pentagon) that the US is about to go into Self Quarantine.
It has not yet been announced, but it will be soon. Once it is, you will not be able to go anywhere to do sales transactions (e.g., banks, grocery stores, movies, etc.)
Once the Shutdown is in place…you will have had to stock up on Can goods, frozen goods, toilet tissue, paper towels, enough food to feed your family for up to 2-3 weeks.
Please be mindful and plan now if you haven’t already to stock up on all the items you will need while staying home.
This is bigger than Bleach, Lysol and antibacterial gel. Please be safe and go to the store asap to stock up so that you and your families won’t go without during the shutdown.
Love you guys and be safe,
I know this isnt the best info but all i can say is that I didnt fabricate this, my friend would never fabricate anything, as for "rick" i dont know him, besides the fact hes my friends mothers boyfriend. She was passing the info down to her son(my friend) and family. My friend forwarded it all to a groupchat im in this morning. Take it how you want. I think a quarantine is a dumb idea, but i will be better preparing for it now at this point.
The US Federal Government can not shut down cities or quarantine areas....this us specifically a States right under the "policing", a massive curtailment of liberty workd be the case to follow...l look at the "Equal Protection"...Link (quoted below)
Does The Federal Government Have The Power To Shut Down A Major City?
Under our federalist constitutional system, primary public health powers (“police powers”) reside with the states, not the national government. While we are currently witnessing the largest federal quarantine in modern history stemming from evacuations from Wuhan and cruise ships (the last federal quarantine was 50 years ago for a suspected case of smallpox), the federal government has very narrow quarantine powers. There are no broad national quarantine powers like those exercised in China and Italy; the US federal government can only act to prevent the spread of COVID-19 into the US or between states. States have the primary quarantine authority, so any compulsory order would be a state or local decision.
This is a HUGE legal issue for the USA...best left for States...and people from other nartions; whi read less and opinion more, should tey to understand the 'States" part of our laws, immidiately read up and stop presuming though a jaded lenses without reading side.
You will be able to go out and buy groceries, don't be silly. Even in Wuhan people can go shop for groceries.

I seriously hope your friend of a friend is wrong.
Halting our entire economy for weeks just because of the flu, is downright ridiculous.
My son had H1N1. You know, one of the 60,000,000 in the US. 12,500 died from it. There was no where near the panic for that.
What the hell is happening to this planet?
