Government officials don’t like to give up power.
And the Biden administration is no different.
Now, Biden’s top COVID advisors have announced that they will never give up their “emergency” powers.
A panel of former advisors to President Biden have started a campaign to make pandemic restrictions and government health surveillance into the “new normal.”
They want Americans to be constantly tracked by the government for “symptoms.” Additionally, they believe that diseases like the flu should be reclassified in order to trigger lockdowns and more emergency measures any time flu “cases” go up.
According to an op-Ed written by these Biden administration advisors, “First the CDC needs to collect and disseminate accurate, real-time, population-based incidence data on COVID-19 and all viral respiratory illnesses.”
This means they are calling on the CDC to collect data on millions of Americans to determine how many of them are infected with COVID or other “viral respiratory illnesses” such as the flu.
Further down, they get more specific in their demands.
“The recent emergence of the Omicron variant has highlighted the need for a comprehensive, nationwide environmental surveillance system that includes wastewater and air sampling to monitor for potential outbreaks of viral and bacterial illnesses.”
“A comprehensive national system is needed to reach the full potential of this surveillance approach, which should empower local jurisdictions with rapid, actionable data and transform pandemic prevention into a more equitable and proactive practice.”
“Equitable” of course is a Marxist term that refers to the socialist ideal of equality of outcome.
Later in the op-Ed, they claim that the surveillance system could be opted out of by individuals. The problem is, opting out would require proactive steps that many people would not know how to take.
This means nearly everybody would fall into this nasty web of surveillance, whether they intended to or not.
“The U.S. needs to establish a real-time, opt-out digital surveillance system to monitor all vaccinated individuals for the frequency and severity of adverse effects, postvaccination infections, and waning immunity.”
The New York Times points out that these recommendations would also lead to the flu, common cold, and other mild viral infections being recategorized as deadly ones in the vein of COVID.
“Dr. Emanuel, Dr. Bright and Dr. Borio write that the first step toward the ‘new normal’ requires recognizing that the coronavirus is one of several respiratory viruses circulating, including influenza.”
“The authors write that policymakers should ‘retire previous public health categorizations’ and ‘focus on a new category: the aggregate risk of all respiratory infections.’”
When they call for retiring “previous public health categorizations,” what they mean is they no longer want us to think of the flu as a mild virus that circulates every year, as we have for our entire lives.
They want us to panic over the flu, the way so many people have panicked over COVID.
They want masks, lockdowns, social distancing, and government surveillance to stop the spread of the flu.
Americans must be made aware of what the public health establishment is planning, and act to stop it. Otherwise, it will be too late.
