No Longer a Nation of Laws—Super-Majority Required to Repeal Obamacare

 How is this action not treasonous?  Why does the public sit for it?  Where is the outcry?  Let the tsunami cover them all with their own shame and lies this February in Illinois.

We Are No Longer a Nation of Laws. Senate Sets Up Requirement for Super-Majority to Ever Repeal Obamacare

By DCT | December 22, 2009

The Senate Democrats declare a super-majority of senators will be needed to overrule any regulation imposed by the Death Panels
Posted by Erick Erickson (Profile) Monday, December 21st at 10:15PM EST at Redstate.com

If ever the people of the United States rise up and fight over passage of Obamacare, Harry Reid must be remembered as the man who sacrificed the dignity of his office for a few pieces of silver. The rules of fair play that have kept the basic integrity of the Republic alive have died with Harry Reid. Reid has slipped in a provision into the health care legislation prohibiting future Congresses from changing any regulations imposed on Americans by the Independent Medicare [note: originally referred to as “medical”] Advisory Boards, which are commonly called the “Death Panels.”

It was Reid leading the Democrats who ignored 200 years of Senate precedents to rule that Senator Sanders could withdraw his amendment while it was being read.

It was Reid leading the Democrats who has determined again and again over the past few days that hundreds of years of accumulated Senate parliamentary rulings have no bearing on the health care vote.  [emphasis mine and throughout]

On December 21, 2009, however, Harry Reid sold out the Republic in toto.

Upon examination of Senator Harry Reid’s amendment to the health care legislation, Senators discovered section 3403. That section changes the rules of the United States Senate.

To change the rules of the United States Senate, there must be sixty-seven votes.

Section 3403 of Senator Harry Reid’s amendment requires that “it shall not be in order in the Senate or the House of Representatives to consider any bill, resolution, amendment, or conference report that would repeal or otherwise change this subsection.” The good news is that this only applies to one section of the Obamacare legislation. The bad news is that it applies to regulations imposed on doctors and patients by the Independent Medicare Advisory Boards a/k/a the Death Panels.

Section 3403 of Senator Reid’s legislation also states, “Notwithstanding rule XV of the Standing Rules of the Senate, a committee amendment described in subparagraph (A) may include matter not within the jurisdiction of the Committee on Finance if that matter is relevant to a proposal contained in the bill submitted under subsection (c)(3).” In short, it sets up a rule to ignore another Senate rule.

Senator Jim DeMint confronted the Democrats over Reid’s language. In the past, the Senate Parliamentarian has repeatedly determined that any legislation that also changes the internal standing rules of the Senate must have a two-thirds vote to pass because to change Senate rules, a two-thirds vote is required. Today, the Senate President, acting on the advice of the Senate Parliamentarian, ruled that these rules changes are actually just procedural changes and, despite what the actual words of the legislation say, are not rules changes. Therefore, a two-thirds vote is not needed in contravention to longstanding Senate precedent.

I will personally work on the campaigns of the opponents of these Senators if they run for re-election; we MUST sweep them ALL OUT OF WASHINGTON unless they are FOR conservative values and can PROVE it by their record!

What To Do? IL Primary Can Be Tsunami

I sent this as an email to all my co-Patriot friends.  Feel free to do the same.

Fellow Patriots,
 
In a stunning move, Harry Reid is looking to change this country forever… and not for the better.  He’s put in a provision to stop us from ever changing it in the future!
 
In the latest post at TaxDayTeaParty.com, we bring light to the fact that Reid is now starting to include language in his healthcare bill that would ban future lawmakers from changing the legislation.
 
In other words, once they get this thing passed, we’ll be slaves to it forever. And there will be nothing we can do about it within the constraints of our current system of government.
 
This blatant violation of his oath for office could not be more clear.  This is against our Constitution—the standard by which we judge those who work for us!
 
Is that the kind of news you want to hear?

Well, what have you done to change politics-as-usual in Illinois?

Sure, you can vote. Remember, for every one of your votes there is a gravestone in Cook County with an absentee ballot on it.

Sure, you can attend rallies in freezing weather that the press ignores and politicians use for comic relief. Doesn’t that just make your blood boil?

Sure, you can make phone calls to your elected so-called representatives.. How’s that working out for you?

Sure, you can sign petitions, fill out surveys, and fill up your friends’ in boxes with political flotsam and jetsam. How does preaching to the choir change the other voters’ minds on election day?

Or, you can put information about candidates’ positions, minus the spin, on important issues in the hands of actual voters on election day.

So which is it? Politics as usual? Or a tsunami that starts in the Mississippi valley and spreads to all three coasts that sweeps the corruption-addicted politicians out-of-office?
 
Illinois is the first primary in the country. What the embattled people of Illinois say in February at the polls will be louder than anything that you individually can hope to say. How do you influence voters that don’t pay attention to the din of politics on the Internet and cable news and traditional media?

So what can you do?

First listen to this recording Teleconference Audio – Candidate Research – from 2009-12-06. Then go to the Tasks page, pick a legislative district, do the research described in the recording and on that page, and post the results of your work. (At Abigail Adams Project – see link below)

DO IT TODAY!

There is no tomorrow!

The universe (creator, God, etc.) rewards people who take action differently than those who do not.

We need to be thinking about this, and we need to be ready to confront it in 2010.
 
Enjoy a blessed and comfortable week with your family, but be ready for the political fight of your life shortly thereafter.
 
For Liberty,

~ Lisa

The Model State Emergency Health Powers Act – the Source of Fear about Pandemic Planning

Much of the liberty-snatching going on in the Obama administration is just an extention of that which was happening in those previous.  It’s just that we have more transparency in this one…  MSM say what they will about conspiracy theorists, it’s all true!  My thanks to AxXiom for this well-documented blog post.


The Model State Emergency Health Powers Act-the Source of Fear about Pandemic Planning
September 14, 2009

Much of the concern about the status of pandemic planning law stems from the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act passed quickly after 9-11.  This Act was to be a “model” for new state laws.

The MSEHP laws proposed to re-write state public health laws to give government health officials sweeping new power over citizens when public health “emergencies” were declared by the Secretary of DHHS or state governors.


National Vaccination Information Center

According to the Heritage Foundation, the Model State Emergency Health Powers Act would empower Governors and health officials to:

  1. Force individuals suspected of harboring an “infectious disease” to undergo medical examinations.
  2. Track and share an individual’s personal health information, including genetic information.
  3. Force persons to be vaccinated, treated, or quarantined for infectious diseases.
  4. Mandate that all health care providers report all cases of persons who harbor any illness or health condition that may be caused by an epidemic or an infectious agent and might pose a “substantial risk” to a “significant number of people or cause a long-term disability.” (Note: Neither “substantial risk” nor “significant number” are defined in the draft.)
  5. Force pharmacists to report any unusual or any increased prescription rates that may be caused by epidemic diseases.
  6. Preempt existing state laws, rules and regulations, including those relating to privacy, medical licensure, and–this is key–property rights.
  7. Control public and private property during a public health emergency, including pharmaceutical manufacturing plants, nursing homes, other health care facilities, and communications devices.
  8. Mobilize all or any part of the “organized militia into service to the state to help enforce the state’s orders.”
  9. Ration firearms, explosives, food, fuel and alcoholic beverages, among other commodities.
  10. Impose fines and penalties to enforce their orders.

Is the “pandemic” a ruse to usher in a completely unconstitutional form of government in America?

9 11 certainly has permitted the ground to be softened already when it comes to the natural and legal rights that Americans have had reason to expect to be honored since the founding of our nation and this sort of apprehension is entirely justified.

Model State Emergency Health Powers Act (MSEHPA)

After terrorist attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C. on September 11, 2001, and subsequent threats of biological warfare against U.S. citizens, federal health officials immediately began preparing for mass anthrax and smallpox vaccination campaigns. National vaccination programs targeting civilians, including children, were proposed in model state legislation created by Lawrence Gostin, of the Georgetown Center for Law and the Public’s Health with funding from the CDC.

The MSEHP laws proposed to re-write state public health laws to give government health officials sweeping new power over citizens when public health “emergencies” were declared by the Secretary of DHHS or state governors.

The National Vaccine Information Center, along with the ACLU and other organizations concerned about lack of informed consent protections and other threats to civil liberties, opposed the legislation. NVIC took the position that, while it is critical for the U.S. to have a sound, workable plan to respond to an act of bioterrorism, as well as enough safe and effective vaccines stockpiled for every American who wants to use them, there are legitimate concerns about a plan which forces citizens to use vaccines without voluntary, informed consent.

The MSEHPA, which was passed by many states in 2002, included provisions that would allow state health officials to use the state militia to:

  • take control of all roads leading into and out of cities and states;
  • seize homes, cars, telephones, computers, food, fuel, clothing, firearms and alcoholic beverages for their own use (and not be held liable if these actions result in the destruction of  personal property);
  • arrest, imprison and forcibly examine, vaccinate and medicate citizens without consent (and not be held liable if these actions result in your death or injury).

The Heritage Foundation published this in 2002:

The Model State Health Emergency Powers Act: An Assault on Civil Liberties in the Name of Homeland Security (June 10, 2002) by Sue Blevins http://www.heritage.org/Research/HomelandSecurity/HL748.cfm

A HIDDEN AGENDA

In response to the tragedy of September 11, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced its support for model legislation. The goal was to provide federal funds to states to encourage the enactment of legislation to prevent and detect bioterrorist attacks. Drafted for the Centers for Disease Control by academicians from the Center for Law and the Public’s Health at Georgetown and Johns Hopkins Universities, the so-called Model State Emergency Health Powers Act was released on October 23, 2001.

It is noteworthy that a key attorney who assisted in drafting this proposal was also very involved in Hillary Clinton’s health care task force nearly a decade ago. It is also significant that two articles related to this proposal were published or prepared well before the Trade Center attacks. In January 1999, in a Columbia Law Review article, a plan was presented for changing public health laws. A similar plan appeared in an American Journal of Public Health article, published coincidentally in September 2001, but accepted for publication in March 2001.

It appears that this model legislation–formulated long before the terrorism of last fall–actually represents the promotion and expansion of a long-standing agenda. As these proposals come before the individual states, our elected officials should be aware of this history and examine carefully all proposals submitted to them.

Although this model legislation was recommended as a means to help states protect citizens against bioterrorist attacks and deal with national defense issues, the draft bill goes much, much further. It calls for giving state public health officials broad, new police powers–all in the name of controlling epidemics of infectious diseases during public health emergencies.

The American Legislative Exchange Council and other groups immediately began tracking the issue and reporting on how such legislation could affect citizens’ individual freedoms and property rights. As Time magazine recently reported, gun activists were some of the strongest and most influential opponents.

Consequently, a revised model bill was released on December 21, 2001. Both models–which the states are using in formulating legislation–are on line at www.publichealthlaw.net. I encourage you to read them.

In an attempt to make the October draft appear less authoritarian, several words were changed in the December draft. For example, the revised language calls for “protecting” persons rather than “controlling” persons during a public health emergency. It says that the state would “manage” private property rather than “control” private property during a public health emergency. And it removes any direct mention of rationing firearms or alcoholic beverages but still retains the right to ration “other commodities,” which clearly could be interpreted to include guns and alcoholic beverages–or many other items for that matter.

MSEHPA gives governors absolute power

Add to this the fact that we already have thousands of foreign mercenaries on our shores (read ‘state militia’ or ‘civilian military’ or ‘Obama’s army’) who have no compunction against shooting Americans, and the fact that FEMA already has camps and equipment in place (see my previous posts http://wp.me/pzfHB-6g and http://wp.me/pzfHB-7U), IMHO — this IS the New World Order.
