CDC Health Emergency Extension Could Be the Least of Our Problems

 

Is anyone surprised that the CDC has extended the public health emergency regarding COVID-19 for 90 more days? Of course, their “reasoning” is that cases are once again increasing; 95,000 new cases are being reported daily, and hospitalizations are “beginning to increase again.” At this point, I frankly do not care about these results: COVID is going to COVID, and what in the world does it mean that hospitalizations are “beginning to increase”?

What does this extended declaration tell us?

The news comes after the American Medical Association and 15 other national health care organizations called on federal health officials to maintain the public health emergency as COVID-19 cases rise. In a May 10 letter, the groups asked for the emergency order to remain in place for patients to access vaccines, tests, treatments, flexible care, and affordable coverage.

‘We request that the Administration maintain the public health emergency (PHE) until it is clear that the global pandemic has receded and the capabilities authorized by the PHE are no longer necessary,’ the groups wrote. ‘This will help prevent any future surges from threatening the health and safety of patients and the ability of health care professionals to care for them.’

They obviously are invested in having government funds pay for everything in the health area, and of course, if we run out of funds, we’ll just ask for more.

I was especially intrigued by the conclusion of these organizations that this extension will help prevent future surges. Republicans have pointed out, without effect, that this effort could become a “permanent state of emergency.”

In other words, the health establishment will continue to capitalize on the fears of the public and insist that these are life and death decisions. Who wouldn’t comply?

*     *     *     *

As if these extensions aren’t concerning enough, the Biden administration has quietly proposed 13 amendments to the World Health Organization’s International Health Regulations:

‘The alarming amendments offered by the Biden Administration to the WHO’s International Health Regulations would grant new unilateral authority to [WHO] Director-General Tedros to declare a public health crisis in the United States or other sovereign nations, without any consultation with the U.S. or any other WHO member. Specifically, the Biden Amendment would strike the current regulation that requires the WHO to ‘consult with and attempt to obtain verification from the State Party in whose territory the event is allegedly occurring in,’ ceding the United States’ ability to declare and respond to an infectious disease outbreak within the United States, dependent on the judgment of a corrupt and complicit UN bureaucracy.

They would also have the authority to rule on information they judge to be misinformation, decisions that our own social media have already made to victimize, stigmatize, and silence our own medical professionals.

Although a decision on these amendments was pushed off into the future, their potential future enactment would be threatening to the sovereignty of the US:

There was no notification to the U.S. Congress on the amendments, which would have significantly enhanced the WHO’s power. For example, experts believed that the language would have enabled the WHO director to unilaterally declare a ‘pandemic’ or ‘serious health status’ within any country without providing the country a chance to respond or advising the WHO prior to a declaration. Instead, the director would unilaterally establish the parameters and basis for the decision.

If these amendments are enacted at a later date, we have reason to be very concerned:

These proposals would be only the tip of the iceberg. At the moment, the plan has all the earmarks of empowering and funding an untransparent, unaccountable, un-removeable behemoth. Just imagine what other schemes these globalist bureaucrats may be envisioning as they begin the process of creating this new monster global health apparatus. There is little room for national sovereignty, and even less consideration for individuals making their own choices.

The oppression of our own lives by health organizations—the CDC and the NIH and their cohorts—are sufficiently alarming to raise concerns about the infringement of the globalist agendas on us, which continue unabated.

Are we prepared to acquiesce to the ongoing demands of the CDC and, at some future date, the WHO?

    I received two Pfizer shots and a booster. That’s enough. And now that they are telling our little ones to be vaccinated–are they nuts?? I am so concerned for the parents who are afraid for their little children–what will they be exposing them to?

    And in addition, my immune system is compromised because I’m on a regular dose of prednisone, and I’m 72. Am I concerned I could get COVID? Yes. Do I obsess about it? No. I probably worry more about tripping on the sidewalk during my walks! And this thing about kids–aren’t they the most unlikely to get sick? What am I missing, except for those comments I’ve made?

    With you in your concerns; the amount of disinformation from governmental sources regarding both the efficacy and possible side effects regarding the vaccine lead me to be very wary of the current narrative. Trust has been broken.

    I took the two original ModeRNA shots, but no boosters. Despite what their real efficacy was, which we’ll probably never know, the virus has moved on like we knew it would. 

    What are y’all doing for prep – what will you do if when you get the ‘vid? My plan is to follow the protocols here: https://covid19criticalcare.com/covid-19-protocols/

    I have enough Starts-With-H and Ivermectin on hand for two early treatment courses, plus Z-packs and zinc. I used Canadian online pharmacies, altho’ they were probably fronts for companies in India. The products and packaging that I received match photos of legit drugs. These are common and inexpensive substances, not something someone would bother substituting or altering.

    Doctors in the US are prevented by their professional associations, AND their state licensing boards, from prescribing the medicines mentioned by Barfly, at peril of losing their license to practice.  Never in US history have medical doctors been prevented from prescribing any medication for their patients.  Pharmacists in most places will not dispense such meds, in fear of losing their own licenses.  That’s why he must go offshore to get them.

    And the Dictator of Washington State has stated that our state will remain in the same state of “emergency” and he will retain his dictatorial powers, until the other Washington declares the emergency over.  Which means, to me, forever.  I predicted this last year.  The Health Fuhrer of King County has already stated that mask mandates might be returning, due to higher case figures and hospitalizations, regardless of the fact that cases are way lower this year than last.  Our Health Nazis will never yield their new power.  Never.

    In the last year I have known a number of people in their 80s who contracted Covid.  Most of them were in a “delicate” state of health but they survived without serious complications.  Some were vaccinated and some were not.

    Having low vitamin D seems to be a major risk factor.

    My plan also.  I got Covid in Apr.  I was sick for a week and run down for a month.  I’ve felt worse with the flu.

    Alarming stuff.  How can Biden enact this on his own?   It should be handled like a treaty and require ratification by the Senate.

    Biden seems to think he can do anything he wishes. He just needs to wave his hand and make it so. We’re under such a push for globalization that I think it will be seriously considered. Unless he avoids Congress again. I can’t imagine they would approve it, MG.

    Exactly. I’m anticipating a CDC recommendation that we give our pet the whole series of COVID shots, just in case it may turn out that they are carriers. I’m sure Pfizer and Moderna would appreciate the added business.

    Zinc isn’t prescription, just get a bottle of 50 mg tabs. Doesn’t azithromycin require a scrip? No matter, it was cheap.

    The Oregon Health Department publishes a weekly report of “breakthrough cases.” Vaccine breakthrough cases are defined as instances in which an individual tests positive for COVID19 at least 14 days following the completion of any primary COVID-19 vaccine series.2.

    In June, the breakthrough infection percentage of these cases was 56.2%. I’m no immunologist, but a failure rate of over 50% doesn’t sound like it meets the definition of “vaccine.” Am I wrong?

    It’s amazing just how much information about things, actions, intentions, thoughts, and the past, present and the future the we can instill into others’ mind just by vibrating the air, making sounds, language, words.

    With cancel culture, words being violence, redefining words, and limiting acceptable speech, it seems they want to take this miracle away from us, or at least significantly blunt it.

    Our government and all their associated support organizations are corrupt.   They will do anything to divert from the disaster of this administration.   I don’t believe any of their covid statistics and their pronouncements.  Will we ever have an honest assessment of these vaccines and their side effects, not to mention the lockdowns.  As Andrew Klavan says, “We live in an empire of lies.”

    I worry that my daughter, who is beginning school in the fall in a healthcare-related field, will be told that she must take the jab in order to have a job. I’m hoping that she’ll be able to RESIST. (Her cousin is also in a healthcare-related field and has so far been able to remain jab-free. But I know for awhile she had to get tested weekly for the ‘Rona.)

    Spending channels and constituencies were built and very hard to dismantle. And it is important that COVID fade into endemic status only while we are still pretending to Do Something About It so that credit can be claimed. Some true believers/ freedom-haters want punitive measures and mandates kept in place for quasi-religious reasons. What can we do to injure the careers and reputations of the perpetrators?

    I suppose the rot is a blessing, because prior to all this, the rot was less obvious.  But some  folks still don’t understand where it’s heading.  Our side thinks we’ll win the next two elections and fix things.  The other side thinks we’ll centralize everything so experts can manage matters.   What’s most likely is that they will try to steal the elections, and if they can, will centralize and destroy the economy for China, which already has almost total control of everything outside of the EU.    But at least now more folks on our side understand just how rotten they are and if they steal the election will at least insist on reviewing the count.

    The CDC and WHO resemble criminal organizations more than they do health organizations. They seek power and control. They, and the regimes they are subservient to, only have fear to peddle in order to try to keep their credibility. They are a joke.

    I am 65, unjabbed, and have had the virus twice. If I had never heard of Covid I would have assumed I had the flu. Isn’t survivability still over 99%?

    I don’t trust the CDC, WHO, or Big Pharma.

    If the Feds truly gave a d—- about public health, the hundreds of thousands they are letting across our southern border and shipping around the country would be:

    1. Tested for Covid

    2. Vaccinated for Covid

    But no. They’re not doing that. What other data points do you need to see that we are being played?

    Great Post Susan!

    “The oppression of our own lives by health organizations—the CDC and the NIH and their cohorts—are sufficiently alarming to raise concerns about the infringement of the globalist agendas on us, which continue unabated.

    Are we prepared to acquiesce to the ongoing demands of the CDC and, at some future date, the WHO?”

    That is the 64 Trillion dollar question, isn’t it?

    The “Mask Mandates” are coming back. Will the populace comply this time? What will happen if they don’t? The Police are dropping like flies. Who is going to enforce these regulations? Between the mandated firing for the non-VAXed  to the outright resignations  the total Police force in blue cities like mine (LA) are way, way  down. But also rate of murder is way up ( 39% officially in LA). And it’s likely to get way worse. 

    What is also not being reported but is slowly leaking out is that the VAX is killing people  in the hundreds of thousands. That’s right hundreds of thousands.  The insurance companies are reporting a huge spike in the death rate that started in 2021 and just grew bigger and bigger and bigger. It cannot be from COVID because the spike does not correlate the max death rates from COVID at all and is much later – after the a significant number of people got the VAX. And the insurance companies are adamant that the increase in deaths are NOT from COVID, and many of the deaths are happening to otherwise healthy people in the lower age groups  which does not fit the COVID pattern.

    It seems we are experiencing a flood of COVID cases in our own 55+ community. I’m sure lots of people are in a panic and many of them are dealing with the fact that the vaxes will likely not help them. I wonder if anyone will track cases/hospitalizations/deaths here? We have lots of people with co-morbidities, too. It could get ugly. I expect to get the plague any day now.

    The pressure was intense in March of 2021 when my trusted doctor called to say he had gotten us on a special list to get the marginally available vaccine. He called on a Sunday night and urged us to go to a specific online URL and apply. We did. Four months after having received both Pfizer shots (uneventfully) we were told by my friend and doctor that we should probably get the booster. What? I was told that my wife and I had been vaccinated. We had our certificates. Now we are being told, well, maybe not so much. Maybe you will need continued boosters. We told our doctor, respectfully Doc, we will pass. Our “betters” couldn’t have come up with a better way to destroy people’s trust in our healthcare system if they tried…or maybe they did and this is exactly what they wanted to achieve.
