The Federal Government should be held accountable in the court of law for deaths of Americans due to the swine flu. Knowing of the disease before it spread to the United States, the Feds failed to shut down the border with Mexico, stop flights from Mexico and quarantine those who had come down with the flu symptoms. After declaring a state of health emergency, the acting head of the Center for Disease Control Richard Besser said,
"I fully expect we will see deaths from this infection. . . We are dealing with a new strain of influenza, we're dealing with a strain of influenza that appears to be moving through our community."The government refused to take the necessary steps to protect its citizens.
But in response to reporters' questions on Monday that the border between the US and Mexico should be closed until the swine flu threat passes, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano replied:
"We're already doing passive surveillance at the border. . .You would close the border if you thought you could contain the spread of disease, but the disease already is in a number of states within the United States." Noting that those infected with swine flu may not show symptoms for a few days, Napolitano said border closure is "a very difficult judgment to make."So let's get this straight, according to the person in charge of protecting the "Homeland", the government is taking a "hands off" approach.
Napolitano believes because the swine flu was already in the United States in very small numbers, that closing the border down and further isolating the swine flu was a bad idea. Her reasoning is that there is no benefit in closing the border because you can't contain the spread of the disease anyway. That's like having a couple of thieves robbing your house and instead of calling the police, you call the county jail and ask if the sheriff can open the jail and send more thieves to your house. Because of this negligence, many believe the government is purposely allowing the swine flu into the US so it can impose mandatory flu vaccinations on the population.
But the purpose and intent of this White House, filled with socialists, those who have refused to pay their taxes, and have consistently made anti-American public statements, appears to be far more than population control - it appears intent on destroying the country - first the economy and then the people. Jesus said in John 10:10,
"The thief comes not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy."And in verse 12, He says,
"But he that is a hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own sheep the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming, and leaves the sheep."In verse 11, Jesus says,
"I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep."Be not deceived, the Federal Government is not Jesus.
