Ok, so forgive future typos as i'm doing this from the phone and it struck me to ask... If i'm understanding correctly, based on the Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law (Title 18, U.S.C., Section 242), no one has to quarantine or keep their business closed. Any executive order, peace-time or otherwise, cannot violate ANY constitutional right. IF i understand correctly (and I really hope there are some lawyers and law enforcement officers who can help me if I don't properly comprehend), Law Enforcement shouldn't enforce said executive orders, and if they did, not only would it be "thrown out of court", but the person signing the executive order AND anyone who enforces it, could be held liable and could potentially face jailtime. Help me out here, folks.
Former Army Ranger and cult figure Mat Best is the latest star to release his own coronavirus quarantine video, but this one features other popular veteran figures and celebrities. Best paired up with singer-songwriter Tim Montana for the country tune paired with clips of veterans like Rob O’Neill, Marcus Luttrell, and celebrities such as actor Charlie Sheen and singer Chris Kirkpatrick. Watch the video above. The song’s lyrics reference barren grocery store shelves and out-of-stock toilet paper after stampedes of shoppers before lamenting on quarantine life. “Quarantine, quarantine / drinking whiskey like vaccine / waving at the neighbors / social distancing,” Best and Montana sing together. “Quarantine, quarantine / wearing Lysol like sunscreen / quarantine, quarantine / oh, lonesome quarantine.” The song goes on to refer to hunting and guns, and also issues a message of thanks to healthcare workers fighting coronavirus, The video features other notable veterans such as Eddie Gallagher, Medal of Honor recipient Dakota Meyer, Nick Palmisciano, Omar “Crispy” Avila, Eli “Doubletap” Cuevas, Robert “LunkersTv” Terkla, and Cody “Donut Operator” Garrett. Singers Granger Smith and Ray Wylie Hubbard, Crossfit athlete Mat Fraser, and social media influencers The Hodge Twins also made appearances. Best is a former Army Ranger with five deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, according to his bio. He later served overseas as a CIA contractor before delving into business. He serves as President of Article 15 clothing and Vice President of Black Rifle Coffee Company, in addition to other business ventures. Best’s oldest videos on his YouTube channel date back to 2012, though most of his videos have been released in 2015. He’s racked up more than 171 million views on YouTube, and even more than that on Facebook. Article provided by American Military News.
We all want to monitor the diseases coming into our country from foreigners or Americans returning from abroad. We have seen the rise of diseases once thought to have been removed from our landscape. On January 17, 2017, the last day of the Obama administration, a new final rule on the Control of Communicable Diseases was issued by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that is schedule to take effect in March. The new rule gives the CDC expanded authority to apprehend, isolate and quarantine for at least 72 hours a person entering the U.S. or traveling between states, who is suspected of being infected, or at risk of being infected, with one of the nine diseases on the U.S. quarantine list (cholera, plague, diphtheria, smallpox, yellow fever, infectious tuberculosis, viral hemorrhagic fevers [like Ebola], severe acute respiratory syndrome [sARS] and influenza ) that can cause a pandemic. 2 The rule also strengthens federal surveillance of travelers for symptoms of non-quarantinable diseases like measles, pertussis and meningococcal disease. 3 While proponents are touting the changes as necessary to protect the public health, critics have been arguing since the CDC first published the Notice of Proposed Rule Making (NPRM) in August 2016, that it is an example of government overreach, which poses a risk to health and civil liberties. 4 My issue is when the government begins to use their reasonable authority in an unreasonable manner. I love my country, I do not trust those in power. I trust President Trump because I sincerely believe he loves America but Obama's loyal socialist progressives which have infested the halls of Washington D.C. on down... they I do NOT trust. The new rule gives the CDC the power to detain for further health assessment a person who is crossing the U.S. or state borders if he or she is exhibiting certain infection symptoms associated with quarantinable diseases, such as fever, headache and acute gastroenteritis (abdominal cramps, loose stools or vomiting). The new rule also makes it clear that rash and cough symptoms of non-quarantinable infectious diseases, such as measles and pertussis, among travelers are going to be more closely monitored by federal government officials as well. For non-quarantinable diseases, CDC will be working with state health departments, who have the legal authority to detain and quarantine citizens suspected of being infected with, or at risk for, being infected with a communicable disease. James Hodge Jr., a professor of public health law and ethics at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law at Arizona State University, told NPR, "Because of the breadth and scope of the definition of ill persons, CDC can target a much wider swath of persons to assess and screen." 6 I emphasized "state borders" because I have visions of military check points on main roads and highways with soldiers or state police forcing citizens off the road to a medical facility, (much the way semi-trucks must stop at weigh stations) where people in white lab coats give instant medical check ups and ordering people to one line or the other. Sounds like science fiction but may not. However, as mentioned, the new rule also allows the CDC to step up federal surveillance of travelers displaying a number of common illness symptoms associated with non-quarantinable diseases like measles and pertussis . Although travelers found to be infected with or at risk for being infected with a non-quarantinable disease like measles cannot be quarantined by federal health officials, state health officials do have the legal authority to detain and quarantine residents infected with certain communicable diseases, depending upon the state's public health laws. The final rule was originally scheduled to go into effect February 21, 2017. However, with the change in administration, the new regulations are being reviewed and will not take effect until the end of March 2017, at the earliest. 13 Read the entire article written By Dr. Mercola at link below. https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2017/02/14/cdc-seeks-quarantine-powers.aspx
