Strangely, I cannot find his proclamation. White House not making the statement for a state of emergency public.

The Health Secretary is effectively controlling health care. Only arbitrary power currently in use.

"offsite hospital" gives the Secretary to acquire any building, or land, and turn it into a medical facility.

After I responded I went to all the .gov websites.

You are right.

There is no official govt site mentioning the declaration, but every news outlet said it happened last night!

Just a odd FYI, I have the scanner on, usualy is, going in the background, entertaning some days as to the crap people do.

But, there was just a page for all EMT units to meet at the fair grounds, (common place for meetings, etc in off season.)
No word as to why, but i'm betting it has to do with this, since i've never had that come accrost at all before.
Sounds like a meeing to update on the new changes that we are discussing... or is it.... .. *g*

Maybe they're all at the fairgrounds.

Here is a link to a document:

National Emergency Powers

I cannot find the official proclamation either (not saying it's false just saying...)

quite possible, the scanner has been very quiet the past few min. not a page at all going on.

Hmmm something else is going on, not quite sure what yet..
now i realy wish i had the codes, page just came accrost all broke up, could not make out what it was saying, and then the dispatch said 'evacuate the area', the responce was 202

Hmmm interesting.. Not so sure it has anything to do with the bill now.
but in our lil ol town i'm sure its nothing big, they probably found a left over sandwich and freked out. *lol*.

Cant see it being to much. Not in a town this size.

Schools can be seized and turned into hospitals as well.

Tent hospitals and the infected can be isolated in "offsite" hospitals - no description of where it would be though.

Thanks for your many astute observations, and particularly for pointing out that the President hasn't seen fit to make a public announcement. Most odd, especially in view of the fact news of the decision only started to trickle out 24hrs after the event. Mind you, it's only a state of emergency.

The whole thing smacks of frantic discussions behind closed doors.

I still suspect there's more to this than the swine flu issue alone.

It is not clear if this declaration falls under the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601–1651). The act is not mentioned in media reports.

It is not a Presidential Order, we know that much.

The National Emergencies Act was passed in 1976. It has been extended six times. In 2007, the declaration was strengthened with the issuance of National Security Presidential Directive 51 (NSPD-51) which gave the president the authority to do whatever he deems necessary in a vaguely defined “catastrophic emergency” including everything from canceling elections to suspending the Constitution.

Let me get this right : last night Obama (now facist previously a socialist!!!) made a proclamation which nobody can actually find the official release of. The proclamation MUST be true because the purveyors of said information were the press, the guardians of the truth who never lie for a story!

If this was UFO related we would all be on our backs legs in the air giggling. But no it's Obama related so the paranoia flows......liberally

You folks need to spend some time off the keyboard go out of your front door and visit reality for a pleasant change.

Given the fact that they have only produced and shipped about 10% of the h1n1 vaccine that they were hoping to ship, and the fact that right now, many doctors can not order the normal flu vaccine, even if they wanted to. I was wondering the other day how long before this kicked in.

I think their main worry is when the h1n1 mixes with the common flu and realy starts spreading, how do you stop a virus that nasty and that spreadable without med's? Easy , restrict travel, keep people in their own little community and ride it out. Sure many may get sick, but it will be isolated, not wide spread.
Not to mention what happens if the h1n1 mixes with any of the other nast bugs out there, bird flu etc. Sadly its a smart move.
Sure we may hate the idea of being restricted, but if this virus turns nasty, and there is no meds to fight it, what other option is there?

Sure there is always the chance that this is some pre planed much deeper happenings going on, but if you stop and think about it, it makes sence. If this thing mixes with the common cold, and then mutates, where do we stand? No meds to fight it, nothing to stop it, except to restrict people from traveling, which will limit its spread.

I think you've got a good point. Maybe they know more about this than they're letting on. By going ahead and declaring an emergency they may be helping us somehow. I don't know.

Too much coincidences...

Dollar going down down down
Big treasury auction next week...nobody will be there to buy
7 banks going down yesterday
Alex Jones new movie exposing the elite the day before and going viral...

Yeah im sure it's a coincidence.

Nobody knows if the national emergency was issued under the National Emergencies Act.

It is currently not a Executive Order - it would've been listed on the White House website and recorded for the media.

All we know is the Health Secretary is running healthcare in the United States, with powers that bypass federal law.

posted on Oct, 24 2009 @ 01:58 PM
It may have been an over-zealous asst press secretary.

Washington Post says -

It says that Obama does "hereby find and proclaim that, given that the rapid increase in illness across the Nation may overburden health care resources and that the temporary waiver of certain standard Federal requirements may be warranted in order to enable U.S. health care facilities to implement emergency operations plans, the 2009 H1N1 influenza pandemic in the United States constitutes a national emergency."

None of the news channels seem to be devoting any coverage to it.

Very strange.

I wonder if there will be a retraction issued?

All Fox is talking about is balloon boy and CNN is running feature pieces.

posted on Oct, 24 2009 @ 02:00 PM
Well it's the top of the hour.

Let's see if Fox runs anything.

posted on Oct, 24 2009 @ 02:01 PM

CNN just said the President says it's a 'proactive move' and 'not related to the recent spread of swine flu'.


It's not REALLY an emergency, but we want to go ahead and grab some power.

posted on Oct, 24 2009 @ 02:02 PM
You guys are really trippin! They just want accurate counts of fatalities. Flu season is just starting and H1N1 has already reached the standard flu peak levels. I don’t think that the drop in Medicare claims this year is just coincidence. Never count on the media to report anything swine related that cannot be confirmed, they do not want to be liable. I have heard the 1000 confirmed deaths is just the tip of the ice berg and we are just getting started.

lets not be ignorant of history thou...

remember that ghenghis khan created an empire with a one, two punch...

first cut off the city to trade coming and going...

we have no factories, no goods being created and the baltic index shipping has collapsed there are no goods coming into this country... and as a close family member who is a global capitalist that sells the machine that cuts the parts to make all the machines said 'there wont be anything to buy in the next few years as nothing is being made world wide'

second he would throw the dead black plague bodies over the wall

hello swine flu over the southern boarder!!!
yes people are dying, I've had it twice while working in
two large high schools where NO ONE DIED, but have talked to
some who have family members with compromised immune systems
in the hospital for many weeks

then he killed every man woman and child while they were down

then the future cities bowed instantly n paid their taxes
so pay your carbon cap and trade taxes to the global gov and don't complain

this is empire building 101, and we are soon to be happy socialist feudal slaves in the US just like the very very happy denmarkies Oprah was showing in such a positive light last week with a tiny apartment and 3 pairs of jeans and free health care and education
and a 60% tax base that pays for the free stuff

and supports a royal elite class of filthy rich
oh but she forgot to show that part

This declaration of 'National Emergency" is the gateway to declaration of Martial Law...

What bothers me is that I'm noticing that news stations like CNN and FOX are breifly discussing this, as they are instructed to downplay this event. Don't get the people too curious about natianoal emergencies and martial law..Act as if this is normal proceure, nothing to look at here folks.....

Normal procedure? I saw a news segment where a reporter outright stated that we have NEVER had national emergency declared from a health crisis....

No folks, this is not normal.

They will mention it here and there, enough so that it doesn't seem "conspiracy like", but it will be downplayed so that it keeps the sheeple from asking questions or researching what martial law really means...They'll mix this news in with the normal circus news: ex

" President Obama has declared H1N1 a National Emergency. This will eventually lead to martial law, forced vaccinations, and mass quarantine sites......but first, the ballon boy mom admits saga was a hoax and after the break, we'll let you know who Paris Hilton is now dating....."

This is done to reduce the level of importance of something....

Some good reflections there, but:

US President Barack Obama has declared swine flu a national emergency.

The White House said the president signed the proclamation concerning the 2009 H1N1 outbreak on Friday evening.

(Taken from the OP source article.)

It's not as if a press secretary was simply relaying something he said.
