Biosurveillance Rapists Gearing Up

Biosurveillance:  Data Rapists

As pandemic waves pound the globe you need to be aware that there are those who seek to exploit medical disasters with biosurveillance data rape.  The government and their partners need data, lots of data.  We are seeing an explosion of data rapists in the name of security, and for the ‘health, safety, and welfare’ of citizens.  This is a dangerous clause inserted into legislation and regulation which provides the government the power to do anything.

The Menace Among Us

When you resist giving up your privacy you are defined in government regulations as a menace to society.  All governments since the time of Moses (Leviticus Chapter 11-16) established biosurveillance and protections to “protect” their people.  Since ancient biblical times those who the government wanted to isolate and demonize were referred to as a menace.

History of Biosurveillance

Biosurveillance goes back before our country existed.  Established in 1741, Rhode Island in colonial America, required tavern keeps to report smallpox, yellow fever, and cholera.  Each year since that time the government has spawned more and more control of health care and related health information.

By 1874 physicians were asked to report by weekly post card the prevalence of 14 notifiable and infectious diseases.

The Center [sic] for Disease Control was actually spawned in 1946 from the Office of Malaria Control in War Areas.  In 1970 its mission and scope broadened to include noncommunicable diseases such as obesity, heart disease, and diabetes.  This was in preparation for coming international treaties.  As Agenda 21 was coming on to the stage in 1992 the CDC’s name was changed to the Center [sic] for Disease Control and Prevention to highlight its leadership role in prevention of disease.

Today we have international bodes expanding the alphabet soup: WHO, OIE, PAHO, and more, calling the shots on precisely how countries will handle disease outbreaks, epidemics, and pandemics.

The State Has the Power

States have the primary authority and responsibility to protect public health except in matters of the military and Veterans Administration (VA).  Unfortunately most states have compromised their authority through federal entanglements involving certain contractual agreements and accepting federal dollars.  Of particular interest in these days of environmental mania is item #11 in Standard Form 424 where any entity accepting federal funds must implement and be in compliance with a plethora of environmental regulations, lock-step with Agenda 21.

States can delegate their health authority to local government provided their state constitution allows for this delegation.

Unfortunately, the U.S. Supreme Court favors granting federal powers to protect the public’s health and safety.  Here is where the issue gets complex.  The federal government can step in when the situation involves commerce, environmental protection, occupational health and safety, and food and drug purity.

In matters of health the legislative branch enacts laws, develops health policy, and allocates monies.  The executive branch establishes health regulations and enforces health policy.  The judiciary branch task is to interpret and adjudicate disputes.  They can determine if a statute is unconstitutional or if their is any negligence.

CDC

The CDC is part of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).  They are responsible for collecting, analyzing, and disseminating national disease occurrence to the public and state and local health departments.  The Department of Health and Human Services is in a research and funding feeding frenzy similar to what we witnessed after 911 with the Patriot Act and the Bioterrorism Act of 2002.

Health Departments

In 2006 there were 3000 health departments, 60 state (tribal or territorial) health departments and the CDC at the federal level.

Communication

This network of health entities coordinate and communicates through a National Electronics Telecommunications System for Surveillance (NETSS).  There is an array of other surveillance systems in place constantly communicating and updating the state of health of  Americans.  This system includes your physician, laboratories, early warning systems (ESSENCE and SAGE), bio-sensors, vital records, and syndromic surveillance (PHIN).

Privacy

The DOD Identity Operations Enterprise clearly states, “Deny the enemy anonymity.”  This simply means that the United Nations ‘War against Disease’ puts your most intimate and private health information at risk.  You need to understand the problem of compromised privacy and then take action.

HIPPA

The HIPPA paperwork that medical facilities have been requiring for decades is not about privacy in the least.  HIPPA and the HITECH Act (part of the 2009 stimulus bill) together already allow 2.2 million entities to have legal access to your private medical records without your consent, and that is a federal number in the 2010 federal regulation.

Make A Medical Privacy Plan

Once you allow your medical information out into public territory your privacy has been compromised.  The proverbial genie is out of the bottle.  Now is the time to develop your medical privacy plan!
