    THE TRUE THREAT posed by the WHO negotiations has been obvious since November 2022. Now would be an exceedingly good time to stop being distracted by red herrings and pay attention to THIS issue. PLEASE REALIZE THE FOLLOWING: The proposed amendments are not about mandates, lockdowns or your relationship with your doctor. The proposed amendments are NOT an attack on national sovereignty. In fact, the proposed amendments are an EXTREMELY dangerous expression OF national sovereignty. Unfortunately, requiring that foreign travelers meet national entry requirements is NOT “unconstitutional.” Such requirements would NOT be over-reach by the federal government. Such requirements would...
  • NY Appeals Court Reinstates Gov. Kathy Hochul’s Power to Enforce Quarantine Camps

    11/24/2023 8:21:35 AM PST · by MNDude · 37 replies
    It's allows the Dept. of Health to pick and choose which New Yorkers they can lockup or lockdown without any proof that you’re sick, without any proof you’ve been exposed to a communicable disease. There’s no time limit so they could lock you up or lock you down for days or weeks or months. There’s no location restriction. They can put you in any facility they want…And then once you are locked up or locked down, there’s no procedure in this regulation that says how you get out of quarantine once you’re in there.”

    A Plague Upon Us; the Niagara Falls Smallpox Epidemic of 1914 September 1, 2015 By Michelle Ann Kratts It must have seemed like the end of the world--the Apocalypse--when smallpox came to Niagara Falls, New York, in January of 1914. Luckily, the city pulled through...although it was quite a harrowing journey to the end. It wasn't exactly a topic I wanted to dive into after a refreshing vacation at Saranac Lake, but there it was on my desk: a dusty, decrepit scrapbook filled with tattered news clippings on one subject, smallpox. I try and imagine the person who cut these...

    Happening Now: The New York Appellate Division has ruled in favor of Governor Kathy Hochul in a landmark case for government overreach. Rule 2.13: “Isolation and Quarantine Procedures” will give the state of New York the ability to come in your home and take you away to quarantine without any notice and for any virus or infection they deem necessary. You won’t have any option to fight it. No court date. Nothing. The rule has no age limit and they can keep you as long as they’d like. The rule also allows them to treat you as they see fit,...

    I hope you are sitting down when you read this article. There is absolutely no way I can possibly sugar coat this, so I’ll just be frank… The NYS Supreme Court Appellate Division’s Fourth Judicial Department has issued their ruling in our quarantine lawsuit against Governor Hochul and her Department of Health, and they have ruled against the will of the people! If you feel like you just got sucker-punched in the gut, join the club, my friends. The court has dismissed our lawsuit, not because we are wrong in our arguments… no, no, indeed we are dead-right. In fact,...

    Russia will inspect all ships sailing in the Black Sea to make sure they don't carry military cargo, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Vershinin said on July 21, as reported by Russian news agency Interfax.Vershinin also said that there is no longer a humanitarian corridor for commercial vessels in the Black Sea.Vershinin’s claim comes two days after the Russian Defense Ministry declared that, starting from July 20, all vessels sailing to Ukrainian ports would be considered as potential carriers of military cargo and therefore regarded by Russia as on the side of Ukraine in the war.Ukraine's Defense Ministry also announced...

    Electric car owners face soaring insurance and repair costs over fears the vehicles could explode after being in even minor collisions. Damaged EVs must be 'quarantined' 15 metres apart from other cars in repair shops due to the risk of battery fires under government guidelines – driving up the price for mechanics and insurers. A lack of suitable repair shops and EV trained mechanics risks increasing costs to the insurance industry by more than £600million, which could be passed on to drivers. As more battery-powered vehicles take to the road insurers will need to spend an additional £900million per year,...

    Emissions of COVID-19 among asymptomatic individuals are relatively low, according to the findings of a new experimental study that intentionally infected patients. The study was published in the weekly peer-reviewed The Lancet medical journal on June 9. The research was conducted at the quarantine unit at the Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust in London, UK, between March 6 and July 8, 2021, with the aim of understanding exactly when infected individuals are generally contagious and how to detect or predict contagiousness in order to reduce transmission in future pandemics. As part of the study, researchers recruited 36 healthy participants...

    The governor of New York has gone back to court seeking permission to detain citizens of her state in quarantine camps – without notice, without rights and for as long as some state-chosen health officials say is needed. The fight arose during COVID-19, when state officials decided they would adopt a new rule giving the state exactly that power. A lawsuit ensued, and the result was that the detention plan was ruled unconstitutional. Gov. Kathy Hochul, through Attorney General Letitia James, now has appealed the court's rejection of her "Isolation and Quarantine Procedures" scheme, according to a report from lawyer...
  • New York AG appealing ruling that prevented Democratic governor from throwing Americans in quarantine camps for indefinite periods without review

    Democratic New York Attorney General Letitia James is appealing a 2022 court ruling throwing out a state regulation over its glaring illegality. If successful, James' appeal will restore the power to Gov. Kathy Hochul's administration to arbitrarily detain American citizens for indefinite periods and force them into quarantine camps. What is the background? The regulation, Section 2.13 "Isolation and Quarantine Procedures," was adopted and enshrined in the New York Code, Rules and Regulation in February 2022. It went into effect April 22, 2022. This regulation enabled the state commissioner of health to "issue and/or ... direct the local health authority...

    BEIJING (AP) — Former NBA star Jeremy Lin, who plays for a Chinese team, was fined 10,000 yuan ($1,400) for criticizing quarantine facilities, China’s professional league and a news report said Friday, as the government tries to stop protests against anti-virus controls that are among the world's most stringent. Also Friday, more cities eased restrictions, allowing shopping malls, supermarkets and other businesses to reopen following protests last weekend in Shanghai and other areas in which some crowds called for President Xi Jinping to resign. Urumqi in the northwest, site of a deadly fire that triggered the protests, announced supermarkets and...

    In what she has called a David versus Goliath battle, New York real estate lawyer Bobbie Anne Cox sued Governor Kathleen Hochul for issuing directives mandating quarantine for people exposed to or infected with highly contagious diseases such as COVID-19. The directives, dubbed “quarantine camp regulations,” have been compared to laws that relocated Japanese during World War II without due process. Cox won the lawsuit on the grounds that Hochul’s regulation was unconstitutional. In a recent interview on Epoch TV’s American Thought Leaders, Cox told host Jan Jekielek that it’s crucial Americans learn about the U.S. Constitution so that they...

    Workers in a manufacturing facility in the central Chinese city of Zhengzhou appear to have left to avoid COVID-19 curbs, with many traveling on foot for days after an unknown number of employees were quarantined in the facility after a virus outbreak.

    New York judge overturned a law that allowed the state government to place even healthy citizens in quarantine camps for an indefinite time without review. Until July 8, the New York Department of Health had immense power to enforce quarantine measures on citizens. It received this power from the state’s Rule 2.13. Legislators never voted to allow the New York Commissioner of Health to put any individual into quarantine for any length of time. Gov. Kathy Hochul and the Department of Health ordered the rule’s protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic. Then, the state renewed Rule 2.13 every 90 days. The...

    American Thinker ^ | 19 Jul, 2022 | Bobbie Anne Flower Cox
    We have had a tremendous victory here in New York: a Supreme Court Judge has struck down Governor Kathy Hochul’s forced quarantine regulation! On July 8, 2022, Judge Ronald Ploetz ruled that the “Isolation and Quarantine Procedures” regulation is unconstitutional and “violative of New York State law as promulgated and enacted, and therefore null, void and unenforceable as a matter of law.” Shockingly, New York’s Governor, Kathy Hochul, and Attorney General, Letitia James, plan to appeal the decision. Yes, that’s right…the Governor and AG, both unabashedly support quarantine camps! One would think that this fact, in and of itself, would...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Thousands more doses of monkeypox vaccine are expected to soon begin shipping to the U.S. after federal health officials said they had completed an inspection of the overseas plant where they were manufactured. The update from the Food and Drug Administration comes amid growing frustration about limited access to the two-dose vaccine as thousands of people in New York City, California and other parts of the U.S. await a chance to get the shot. Most of the roughly 1,000 cases reported in the U.S. have been among men who have sex with men, but health officials stress...
