Series on Congressional enabling statutes authorizing and funding US domestic bioterrorism program. Part 1 of TBD.
Note: This is the first post in a series about federal laws passed by Congress1 and signed by US Presidents to legalize domestic, government-run bioterrorism programs deployed against the American people.
The purpose is public education, as a component of further delegitimizing Congress and the federal government, and building public support for the establishment of accountable, Constitutional regional governments as we move toward the United States’ withdrawal from globalist power structures, and internal political breakup.
The series is about how the biomedical police state cage has been legally built, year by year, disaster-predicate by disaster-predicate, fear-campaign by fear-campaign, by our enemies in government, the pharmaceutical and war industries, and propagandists.
We, the people living inside that cage, can and should dismantle it and escape.
Each post includes a summary of the domestic law(s) passed that year, plus other related things that happened such as regulatory changes, executive orders, court rulings, geopolitical and financial market events, epidemics, scientific papers, patents, international agreements, milestones in the careers of Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates, and events in the history of the Catholic Church.
Each post will be a living document: I’ll add information as I find it and have time to update.
As the series develops, I’ll crosspost links to make it easier to find out what happened in other years. When the series is finished, I’ll compile it all into a PDF and post the link at the top of each installment.
I’ll also link regularly to Lee Muller’s series on the pending Cures Act. 2.0, which is now moving through Congress to further expand the federal government’s public health-predicated police power and appropriate more public funding for government-run domestic bioterrorism.
July 13, 1983 - PL 98-49; 97 Stat. 245; HR 2713 -
This statute amended the 1944 Public Health Service Act, 42 USC 201, to add Section 319: “to authorize appropriations to be made available to the Secretary of Health and Human Services for research for the cause, treatment, and prevention of public health emergencies.”
With the new provision, Congress and President Ronald Reagan gave power to the appointed Secretary of Health and Human Services to decide, in consultation with the appointed NIH Director, FDA Commissioner, CDC Director and/or head of the Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Mental Health Administration (ADAMHA) that "(1) a disease or disorder presents a public health emergency, or (2) a public health emergency otherwise exists.”
Following the HHS Secretary’s discretionary, administrative decision, he or she “has the authority to take action with respect to such emergency,” acting through the NIH, FDA, CDC and ADAMHA officials and agencies.
The HHS Secretary gained independent power to make grants and enter into contracts on behalf of the federal government, to conduct and support investigations into the cause, treatment, or prevention of a disease or disorder.
The new law also established a Treasury fund called the Public Health Emergency Fund for the HHS Secretary’s use, and appropriated $30,000,000 for fiscal year 1984.
Congress further authorized future appropriations, to ensure that $30,000,000 would be sitting in the fund, ready to be spent by the HHS Secretary on grants and contracts, at the beginning of each fiscal year.
The 1983 public health emergency law included a provision requiring the HHS Secretary to report about which public health emergencies had been declared by the HHS Secretary, and which emergency grants and contracts had been funded, at what dollar amounts from the Public Health Emergency Fund, during each fiscal year, to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and the Senate Committee on Labor and Human Resources, within the first three months of the following fiscal year.
