Maryland Health Officials Who Coerce Vaccinations Qualify as "Terrorists" Under New Senate Legislation

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

As we reported yesterday, the U.S. Senate is about to vote on a bill that would criminalize the "planned use of force" to promote a political, religious or social belief. While we strongly disagree with the passage of the law, one curious effect is that it would clearly qualify Maryland's Attorney General Glenn Ivey -- the man who has threatened Maryland parents with imprisonment if they don't get their children vaccinated -- as a terrorist.

With the help of two state judges and the head of the local school board, Glenn Ivey conspired to terrorize parents with threats of having them taken from their homes at gunpoint (being arrested) and forcibly separated from their families by throwing them in jail for up to 30 days if they refused to have their children vaccinated with drugs that contain the toxic heavy metal mercury. There is absolutely no question that under the new legislation that's about to pass the Senate, called the Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act, Glenn Ivey's actions would qualify as acts of terrorism. (See our previous report on this topic at ) Even more interestingly, Glenn Ivey merely thinking about threatening parents who don't get their children vaccinated would, all by itself, be considered a terrorist "thoughtcrime" act.

Glenn Ivey, of course, will never be prosecuted as a terrorist under this law. But if you or I picked up a gun, shoved it in the faces of parents, and threatened to kidnap them if they didn't inject their children with toxic mercury, there's no doubt that we'd be arrested and charged with numerous crimes. So why does the state of Maryland get away with making essentially the same threat?

Because in a fascist police state, the laws are never applied to the criminals running the State. Laws are selectively applied only to the citizenry, not the officials, bureaucrats and law enforcement personnel who are protecting the power structure. This is, in fact, a key sign of an unjust society: The King's laws never apply to the King! (Only to the peasants...)

Ignoring the rule of law

Essentially, it means there are two tiers of law. At the bottom, there are all the laws that apply to the people, which include this anti-terrorism legislation. But at the top, none of those laws apply to the people running the State. Maryland's Attorney General will never be charged as a terrorist, even if his actions clearly qualify him as one under U.S. law. President Bush will unfortunately never be charged as a murderer, even though his war actions clearly qualify him as a mass murderer (if you kill just one person, it's called murder, but if you kill a hundred thousand, it's called war).

How about the international laws against the use of weapons of mass destruction? Once again, the United States is openly engaged in the use of such weapons -- depleted uranium shells being used right now in Iraq and Afghanistan. Note that there is absolutely no international trial, no charges, and no outcry from any western nation over the use of this WMD that will irradiate the Iraqi landscape for generations to come.

Is depleted uranium really a WMD? Of course it is. Here's a brief explanation from Wikipedia:

The Sub-Commission on Prevention of Discrimination and Protection of Minorities of the United Nations Human Rights Commission,[16] passed two motions[17] the first in 1996[18] and the second in 1997.[19] They listed weapons of mass destruction, or weapons with indiscriminate effect, or of a nature to cause superfluous injury or unnecessary suffering and urged all states to curb the production and the spread of such weapons. Included in the list was weaponry containing depleted uranium. Continue reading at Wikipedia...

How laws are applied in a police state

Police state societies do not respect the rule of law. They simply invent laws as they go along, then selectively apply them to whoever they want. For example, here in the United States, it is illegal for the President to declare an act of war. Only Congress can declare an act of war, yet Congress never declared war against Iran or Afghanistan. Bush sort of declared war, but only against a concept -- terrorism -- and not an enemy state.

If this Violent Radicalization and Homegrown Terrorism Prevention Act passes and gets signed into law, there are all sorts of government actions against the People that should technically be considered acts of terrorism. For example, armed FDA raids on vitamin companies would clearly qualify as acts of terrorism. Will FDA officials be arrested, charged with terrorist crimes, and shipped off to Guantanamo? Only in your wildest dreams...

How about the use of force by the DEA to destroy industrial hemp farms in the United States? This lucrative crop is grown legally in Canada and used to make hemp clothes, hemp rope, hemp seeds (which are rich in omega-3 oils) and all sorts of goods that we import from Canada, but here in the U.S., the growing of this industrial crop is condemned, disrupted and aggressively attacked by a government group that, at times, acts like a group of terrorists: The Drug Enforcement Agency.

What are they doing that qualifies them as terrorists? Raiding farms at gunpoint, burning their hemp fields, spraying poisons on their crops via helicopter, imprisoning the farmers, and much worse. It's clearly a terrorist operation designed to achieve a political goal (the destruction of the hemp industry in order to protect the powerful cotton interests in this country). There is absolutely no logical rationale behind the suppression of the hemp industry. It is purely a political ploy.

All this doesn't mean the DEA isn't useful in stopping the manufacture and distribution of truly dangerous drugs like meth or crack, but spending billions of taxpayer dollars going after a harmless industrial crop like hemp -- a crop that could enrich U.S. farmers, produce endless renewable biofuel energy and create a booming textile industry -- is ludicrous.

We can do this the easy way or the hard way...

What's clear about all this in the United States today is that the U.S. government believes it has the right to use terrorist tactics on the People in order to achieve its political goals. The gunpoint medicine policy of forced vaccinations in Maryland is a recent outgrowth of this dangerous belief. It is the kind of belief that lets you know right away just how quickly this country is headed towards police state fascism. Apparently, pointing guns in the faces of the People (or threatening to do so) is increasingly one of the ways in which Government gets its way. In fact, Maryland's Attorney General used these exact words when describing his gunpoint medicine policy of forced vaccinations: "We can do this the easy way, or we can do this the hard way..."

What he means by that, of course, is if you don't agree with his political and medical aims, you will have a gun shoved in your face and be threatened with violence until you comply. This is a classic motivation tactic of a police state society. I'm curious to know whether Glenn Ivey will support this new legislation in the U.S. Senate that would clearly classify his own actions as acts of terrorism...

It will be fascinating to see how all this plays out. Will the People rise up and demand their freedoms, wrestling the future of America back from tyrants? Or will they elect a new tyrant in 2008 and accelerate the nation's march towards self destruction? Given that at least half the population is now drugged up on pharmaceuticals, brainwashed by cable news and hoodwinked over what really happened on 9/11, it's hard to imagine people waking up in time to change the course of this country. But stranger things have happened. It's possible that this nation might survive its current freedom crisis, but I sure wouldn't bet on it. And if I did bet on it, I wouldn't place my bet in fast-falling U.S. dollars, for sure.
