This is how the war of the words is fought on the Internet. A simple battle of semantics.
Take the most notorious search engine’s news aggregate, Google News, for example. Go there and type in “martial law” right now, maybe in conjunction with “Africa” or “Ebola” and see what comes up.
Not a whole lot. Barely more than a digital whisper, really.
Now type in, oh, any combination of those words, but substitute “martial law” with “troops” or “soldiers”. Now see what you get.
It’s everywhere. Troops have now been deployed in Sierra Leone and Liberia. The country is in a martial law lockdown. It’s just…no one in the mainstream media is calling it what it is.
Liberian President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf has officially declared a 90-day state of emergency, and she told Associated Press that, “some civil liberties will be suspended”. The article went on to say, “In neighboring Sierra Leone, military forces also deployed as part of ‘Operation Octopus’ which officials said was aimed at preventing ‘the unauthorized movement of Ebola-infected persons.’”
This is martial law and in the case of Sierra Leone, martial law with a really creepy code name.
While the media seems hellbent on scaring the crap out of everyone by mentioning the word Ebola every other five seconds, there is actual useful information seeking out that we might want to glean here, in case anything like this should happen in our neighborhoods. You just have to wade through all the fear porn to get to it.
Let’s stick with this AP article for a second.
So, civil liberties will be suspended with military force. What else?
AP continues, “National Health Workers Association president Joseph Tamba said the state of emergency is necessary. But he says people should have been given advance notice to buy food ahead of the movement restrictions.”
So, civil liberties were suspended and they didn’t give the average person who isn’t prepper-minded adequate time to get prepared?
Very good to know. What else?
“Relatives are hiding feverish patients at home for fear if they are brought to isolation centers and don’t have Ebola they will end up contracting it anyway.”
Okay. Considering that there is the belief floating around Sierra Leone that this outbreak is a “government conspiracy,” that makes sense. The article also mentioned that, out of this same sense of fear, people are just dumping their dead in the streets and taking off, likely because they don’t want to be whisked away and quarantined themselves.
“Experts warned that extreme measures risk driving patients and their families further underground out of fear. The best way to track possible exposures is through community leaders who are known and respected, they say.”
The government uses trusted community leaders as the best way to flush out people who don’t want to willingly turn themselves in to quarantine centers. Got it.
Putting the totally irrational fear aside that a disease which has only ever afflicted 6,000 people in the history of humanity will suddenly show up on your doorstep, what’s going on right now in Africa is a very real on-the-ground glimpse into how governments implement martial law and how they respond to people in these kinds of situations.
(And that’s not even getting into the fact that the African people have been told they will not be receiving the experimental treatment given to the two Americans and it could be months before anything is developed. No one has said it would be offered to them if it is, either, and that’s regardless of whether or not anyone would even trust such a treatment…I’m here, and there are several reasons I don’t trust it at all, including the fact that the guy behind the treatment makes jokes about culling 25% of the world with a genetically engineered virus like that’s just hilarious.)
Consider the statements I’ve pulled out here. My colleague Daisy Luther of The Organic Prepper just got done writing a story the other day, Here’s Why I Won’t Be Lining Up for the Ebola Vaccine, in which she makes a very compelling argument backed by decades of historical information on vaccine production gone wrong and military-medical-media industrial complex corruption and scaremongering in this country as to why she will not be rolling up her sleeve for any Ebola vaccinations or “treatments”, not now or ever.
People in West Africa are staying the hell away from the government “isolation” centers and hospitals. People there believe it’s a government conspiracy. How many Americans would (and do) feel the same way about what’s going on right now, knowing our very own Fort Detrick biowarfare scientists who just so happen to have been over in the Ebola hot zone in the main three Ebola-ravaged countries testing lab-grown monoclonal antibody cocktails on healthy human adults for several years now are staying pretty mum on the current situation?
In an outbreak scenario even as small as neighborhood-wide, would Daisy Luther be considered a “hold out” who refuses to go to a treatment center should vaccinations or isolation for this deadly disease become mandatory?
By executive order, our government currently has a laundry list of infectious diseases for which the CDC states it “has the legal authority to
detain any person” who “may” be afflicted — including cholera, diphtheria, infectious tuberculosis, plague, smallpox, yellow fever, viral hemorrhagic fevers (like Ebola), SARS, and “new types of flu (influenza) that could cause a pandemic” — according to the CDC’s quarantine stations fact sheet dated August 2103.
Again, I want to stress the CDC says it can legally detain anyone if the person “may” have the disease, not if the person has officially, definitely been diagnosed with the disease in question. The fact sheet also says, “CDC also can have them admitted to a hospital or confined to a home for a certain amount of time to prevent the spread of disease.” It does not say this any of this will be voluntary or optional.
On top of that, the Pentagon is all over this experimental Ebola treatment being grown in tobacco cells that has just been approved for human testing.
As Jon Rappoport recently reported,
This “Blue Angel” project, as it’s called, suddenly puts the Pentagon in the forefront of the vaccine business. The big question is: why is the Army involved in vaccines at all? And the answer is no surprise. According to DARPA, it’s all about readiness in containing bio-threats. Translated, that means terrorist attacks that could use flu viruses.
This is a sinister development. It creates a potential scenario in which the military can invent the “bio-threat” and then step in and provide the solution. It doesn’t really matter whether the bio-threat is real or imaginary.
The threat would offer the chance to initiate a martial-law scenario, after which the military vaccine would be made mandatory, destroying the right of each state in the union to permit, as is now the case, people to opt out of vaccination on religious, medical, or ethical grounds.
The Pentagon is famous for developing weapons and then lobbying for battlefield opportunities to use them. This is part and parcel of their “war is forever” mentality. Well, in this case, the vaccine becomes the defensive weapon, and you can be sure the Pentagon will strive to deploy it in a situation that “demands it”—a chilling prospect…
The CDC and WHO relentlessly promoted Swine Flu as a monster menace that could invade and decimate the planet. Therefore, everyone needed to step up and take the vaccine. These civilian agencies are mere pikers compared to the Pentagon. Can you imagine what the Dept. of Defense would promote and launch to guarantee their vaccine finds a place in your bloodstream? The DOD regularly makes conflict of interest into an art form.
Martial law? No problem. [emphasis added]
A “defensive weapon” like a vaccine that it’s in national security interest that everyone who is even under suspicion of having Ebola takes?
Ebola cases have now shown up in five African countries, and now that America and Spain are flying in Ebola patients on purpose, a disease that was once only found in Africa has been able to travel to four continents.
Calm down and take a deep breath, but don’t ignore what’s going on here. Modern America is a country that has been bred to thrive off fear. People are already swarming the CDC with phone calls because they have a slight fever or a cough throwing rational thinking out the window because they might have Ebola. Homeland Security has also injected the nation with a “See Something, Say Something” mentality since 9/11. The mainstream media and their mind-controlling 24/7 news cycle is whipping the average person into a total state of panic as we speak with this. On top of that, the government made sure to fly two people with Ebola here, just in case the idea of Ebola coming home didn’t actually hit home hard enough.
If the $@!% hits the fan here, we’re going to have to invent a new phrase, because “lose it” isn’t even going to be adequate enough to describe how the majority of society will respond.
The CDC has just issued a Level 1 response — the agency’s highest alert response to the Ebola outbreak, something that hasn’t happened since the bird flu outbreak in 2009 or the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005 (another instance where martial law was declared).
Losing one’s mind with irrational fear is different from looking critically and logically at a situation and gleaning what’s important from it.
Back when hundreds of people were dying from this, the governments said they were overwhelmed, but they didn’t quarantine people or stop flights or even shut off cross-country border travel. The World Health Organization took what it claimed were drastic measures by “calling a meeting”. While they were having that meeting Ebola continued to spread rapidly and now it is totally out of control there, and it is martial law in the streets.
Look to Africa now. Look at how the governments have responded to their people throughout this Ebola crisis and how the people are now responding to the situation they find themselves in.Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter. You can also get Freedom Outpost delivered to your Amazon Kindle device here.
