SOS from New York State
Substack subscriber Donna Harrington emailed me with the subject line “SOS from NYS”.
We recently fled NYC in anticipation of what she brought to my attention.
There appears to be a vote on February 14, 2022 to push through “laws” that would strip bodily autonomy due to nothing more than mere suspicion of communicable “disease”.
Before we proceed to the email, let’s briefly review a few key subdivisions of the proposed “law”:
“Subdivision (b) and (c) of Section 2.2 are amended, and new subdivisions (h) through (q) are added, to read as follows:
(b) [A case is defined as] Case shall mean a person who has been diagnosed [as likely to have] as having a particular disease or condition. The diagnosis may be based [solely] on clinical judgment, signs and symptoms combined with known exposure based on the best available evidence of transmissibility to a case or suspected case, [solely] and/or on laboratory evidence, [or on both criteria] as applicable.
(c) [A suspected case is defined as] Suspected case shall mean a person who has been [diagnosed] determined as [likely to have] possibly having a particular disease or condition. [The suspected diagnosis] A suspected case may be based [solely] on signs and symptoms, signs and symptoms combined with known exposure based on the best available evidence of transmissibility to a case or suspected case, [or solely] and/or on laboratory evidence, [or on both criteria] as applicable. The term “suspected case” shall include persons under 3 investigation, consistent with any guidance that the Commissioner of Health may issue with respect to a particular disease.”
To likely have a “suspected case”, “but who do not show signs or symptoms of such disease…”. This is purposely as broad and vague as possible, indemnifying the criminal government and it’s drunk on power petty tyrant apparatchiks. Literally, they are granting themselves powers to lock anyone up for anything, and then claim plausible deniability if need be by merely qualifying the grossly unconstitutional detainment on grounds of suspicion without due process; to wit:
“(j) Quarantine shall mean the physical separation and confinement of an individual or groups of individuals who are reasonably determined by the State Commissioner of Health or local health authority to have been exposed to a highly contagious communicable disease, but who do not show signs or symptoms of such disease, for such time as will prevent transmission of the disease, in the clinical judgment of the State Commissioner of Health, or of the local health authority and consistent with any direction that the State Commissioner of Health may issue.”
Any direction, reasonable determination, clinical judgement, any guidance, any suspicion, and so on and so forth.
The Founding Fathers created States Rights with each State functioning as its own Sovereign Nation whose laws supersede the federal government located in the foreign nation of Washington, DC. The only laws that the State may not supplant are the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. By attempting to push through these illegal “laws” the State of New York is subverting the law of the land and as such will become upon passing said “laws” an illegitimate and criminal state government.
Donna Harrington’s email in its entirety:
Why is no one talking about the fact that language in NYS health law (SAPA) will be changed in order to unlawfully detain someone who is “deemed” infectious simply by signs and symptoms and put into a detention center??? Along with other tyrannical amendments.
Have we not learned from our history in WWII?
Have we not learned from our shame of detaining Japanese Americans in the past?
We are accelerating into repeating history! We will look back on this and make excuses, but families will suffer the consequence and the future apologies will mean nothing!
Please help stop this!
Next week on February 14, 2022, the citizens of New York will lose bodily autonomy!!!
Passing of the following amendments in NYS Health Code will change life as we know it in our state.
Proposal of Amendment of Section 415.3 of Title 10 NYCRR and Addition of Section 485.18 to Title 18 NYCRR (Personal Caregiving and Compassionate Caregiving Visitors in Nursing Homes and Adult Care Facilities) to become a NYS rule is wrong because this removes all rights to see your loved ones who are in nursing homes and in-care facilities.
We need autonomy from the government - ESPECIALLY due to the horrible events that took place in nursing homes under Cuomo's rule. Having a rule like this is another example of government overreach and unbalanced/unchecked power that should not be allowed moving forward.
Proposal of Amendment of Part 2, Section 405.3 and addition of Section 58-1.14 to Title 10 NYCRR (Investigation of Disease; Isolation and Quarantine) to become a NYS rule is wrong because this would grant the NYS DOH overreaching, unchecked power.
The Governor/Department of Health should not have the authority to deem unvaccinated or covid positive patients a threat to society. Two years into COVID, we have knowledge, treatments and vaccines (for those that WANT to be vaccinated). Most people have natural immunity now after two years into this. Thousands of scientists and doctors agree that natural immunity counts more than feigned protection from a shot. We need a return to NORMAL, not more unchecked power wreaking havoc and dividing us.
Covid tests have proven to be inaccurate many times and PCR tests that were used for the two years were pulled off the market on December 31, 2021 because they were of no value and inaccurate and we have all seen that both the vaccinated and unvaccinated can and always will be vulnerable to getting covid.
Proposal of Addition of Section 2.61 to Title 10 NYCRR, Amendment of Sections 405.3, 415.19, 751.6, 763.13, 766.11, 794.3 & 1001.11 of Title 10 NYCRR & Sections 487.9, 488.9 and 490.9 of Title 18 NYCRR (Prevention of COVID-19 Transmission by Covered Entities) to become NYS rule is wrong for the following reasons:
It forces the use of covid vaccination. Will do away with exemptions.
Allows for language to determine what fully vaccinated means (to what end?) and so much more. Basically handing your body over to the government.
I believe in the Constitutional right to religious belief is being ignored. Vaccination documents are causing discrimination and invasion of privacy. Bottom line: the government should NOT be in control of our bodies. This imposes unfair rules of medical employees and other essential workers being forced to get a vaccine to continue their livelihood in a free country when both unvaccinated and vaccinated continue to get covid. The original pilgrims came to this country to HAVE religious freedoms and rights and fled from a nation that stripped them of their freedoms!
Proposal of Amendment to Subdivision (a) of Section 64,7 of the Regulations of the Commissioner of Education Relating to the Execution by Registered Professional Nurses of Non-Patient Specific Orders to Administer COVID-19 Immunizations to become a NYS rule is wrong because this would allow school nurses the ability to give immunizations at school. This is another rule that falls into the category of gross overreach of power. Medical decisions for our school children should ALWAYS require parental consent and should be in consultation with a trusted doctor - NOT a school nurse alone without a parent and without parental consent.
Amendment of Section 2.60 of Title 10 NUCRR & Repeal of Subpart 66-3 of Title 10 NYCRR (Face Coverings for COVID-19 Prevention) will make it a permanent NYS rule regarding face coverings, because this would give the Governor through the DHS power AT WILL to declare mask mandates without an emergency. This should NOT be something that the Governor can implement alone without consensus. This is not a totalitarian nation.
If masks truly worked, we would not still be in the state that we are in currently. Masks are far more physically and psychologically damaging to adults and children and do not prevent the transmission of covid.
We are losing our rights. The exodus of New York will grow until there is no more New York. Who will be left in this state? It will be a wasteland.
