'Obama has declared the swine flu outbreak a national emergency. The White House on Saturday said Obama signed a proclamation that would allow medical officials to bypass certain federal requirements. Officials described the move as similar to a declaration ahead of a hurricane making landfall.'

Yikes! Health Maven wonders "exactly" what this statement means:
"...that would allow medical officials to bypass certain federal requirements." ?
Remember the old saying, "The devil is in the details."
Speaking of Hurricanes...
If you haven't researched what actually happened before, during, and after hurricane Katrina-- now may be the time to review that nightmarish debacle. Hint... you'll have to peruse alternative media sources to get the real picture. No matter how you slice this decree by President Obama, it's a bad omen. Interesting that this emergency is announced following the revelation by CBS that the swine flu numbers are padded (see Dr. Mercola piece below). Whatever happens, stay away from the toxic swine flu shot. It's all risk and no benefit, except for the $drug companies$ (Big Pharma and its 'blanket liability' exemption) and the overreaching fascist, Federal Government(Police State Agenda). Mr. Obama, this is not the "change" we were hoping for.
Stay alert and stay well.

Obama has declared a 2009 H1N1 swine flu a national emergency. It is not clear if this declaration falls under the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601–1651). The act is not mentioned in media reports.
The National Emergencies Act was passed in 1976. It has been extended six times. In 2007, the declaration was strengthened with the issuance of National Security Presidential Directive 51 (NSPD-51) which gave the president the authority to do whatever he deems necessary in a vaguely defined “catastrophic emergency” including everything from canceling elections to suspending the Constitution.
NSPD-51 (National Security and Homeland Security Presidential Directive) is unconstitutional. It was created on May 4, 2007, as a “presidential directive” (bypassing Congress) and signed by George W. Bush. It claims the power to execute procedures for continuity of the federal government in the event of a “catastrophic emergency.” Such an emergency is construed as “any incident, regardless of location, that results in extraordinary levels of mass casualties, damage, or disruption severely affecting the U.S. population, infrastructure, environment, economy, or government functions.”
In other words, it is a martial law directive. On May 10, 2007, The Washington Post characterized NSPD-51 is a “shadow government” directive.
The John Warner National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2007 states that the military may be used during a “national emergency.” Sec 1076 is extremely explicit, notes Michel Chossudovsky, and “virtually creates a Pinochet style environment for the mass arrest of political dissidents without trial, the storming of public rallies, etc.”
NDAA specifically mentions “epidemic” as an excuse to declare martial law.Read more...
