As the FDA fights to allow people with ailments to seek prescription medications over-the-counter, we receive a perfectly timed e-mail from a reader in Minnesota.
The test pill bottle delivered by postal workers.
This past weekend she received in her home mailbox an empty pill bottle and a flyer informing that she’s part of a test group. Hers and about 37,000 other MN addresses were “volunteered” to be guinea pigs in “Operation Medicine Delivery,” a joint project to “see how fast postal teams can deliver medicine to homes in an emergency.” Seems mildly quaint at first.
Here’s the transcribed text of the flyer people received (our reader was kind enough to transcribe):
“You should have received a sealed empty medicine bottle in your mailbox today. It was put there as part of a test called Operation Medicine Delivery. The purpose is to see how fast postal workers can deliver medicine to homes in an emergency. This is only a test. There is no emergency now. And we have no reason to believe one will happen soon. You do not need to do anything. You can just recycle the bottle. In a real emergency, we may need to get medicine to many people quickly. The Minnesota Department of Health has been working with the US Postal Service, local police and sheriffs on a plan for delivering medicine. Postal delivery is just one way of getting medicine to people quickly. We will need to do that if – for example- Minnesota is ever the target of a bioterrorist attack. Again, there is no emergency right now. This is only a test. For more information, go to: www.health.state.mn.us”
As can be assumed, this wasn’t all Minnesota’s idea. The MDH (Minnesota Department of Health) site lists the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Center for Disease Control, local public health and law enforcement, and emergency management agencies all as partners in the project.
And it wasn’t just the postal service making the deliveries: “simulated emergency medicine will be delivered by teams of postal service volunteers and law enforcement officers in regular postal service vehicles.”
Also, Minnesota isn’t the first to test this out: “The idea of using postal delivery teams to deliver emergency preventive medicine has already been tested, on a limited basis, in Boston, Philadelphia, and Seattle.”
Upon further reading, we learn this is all part of a larger “public health initiative” known as the Cities Readiness Initiative, a federally funded CDC project.
So why all the fuss? It appears as though the CDC is genuinely looking out for the safety of its citizens. We know this to almost never be the case. “The medical-industrial complex,” as Ethan A. Huff, author of the aforementioned FDA article, explains, “is primarily concerned with drug company profits over safety.”
Our reader’s main concern was that this could lead to more intrusive methods of delivering medicines: “This really concerns me. Have you heard this happening in other parts of the country? Next they will be wanting to do door to door vaccinations.”
A bit more reading and we see that the CRI is trying to do just that: “The Cities Readiness Initiative helps communities prepare for public health emergencies where it may be necessary to get medications and vaccines to people quickly.”
Do you know how a law enforcement officer might respond if you decline the vaccine they were ordered to give you? Not too well.
There also seems to be an awful lot of mentions of the idea of a ‘bio attack,’ instigating a public fear factor. One of Minnesota’s papers, the Star Tribune, featured an article that asked: “What if an airborne anthrax attack struck the Twin Cities? How would millions of Minnesotans get the medicine to survive?” Another press release begins: “The scenario might be a widespread, life-threatening infectious disease outbreak. Or it might be a deliberate bioterror attack, targeting the entire metro area, using a deadly agent like anthrax.”
Rhetoric like this is used to warm people up to the idea of a bio-terror attack. As we are in the business of calling out false flags, the only reason there would be a biological attack is if our own government orchestrated it themselves. They create the problem, then pose as the saviors.
The federal government is using Operation Medicine Delivery to gauge the public’s response to receiving medication from a postal worker, but what’s their real purpose?
Are they acclimating the public to receive medications from anyone who says so?
Could this eventually lead to forced door-to-door “emergency” vaccinations? Or, as Kurt Nimmo writes, is this just a feeble attempt to keep the bogus war on terror alive?
