Texas Contact Tracing Can Bring Criminal Charges, Jail, and Fines
By Carole Hornsby Haynes, Ph.D. June 17, 2020
For weeks the American people were terrorized by federal predictions of millions of deaths from a Wuhan virus and states were told to shut down. We were told by federal medical experts that the Wuhan virus pandemic would be the worst since the Spanish flu.
Now we find out that the virus is no worse than our annual flu and has a very low mortality rate of less than 1%. Yet the federal government wants massive testing and contact tracing purportedly to keep the virus from spreading.
The test results are good only for the moment, making testing completely unnecessary. The flu needs to run its course like other types of flu. We don’t test our population for other flu viruses, so why now? What is the agenda?
In Hotze et al. v Abbott, Dr. Steven Hotze states, “In all practicality, COVID-19 is simply a flu-like illness, which is nowhere near as contagious as the flu. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC), in the United States there have been approximately 2.1 million illnesses confirmed or assumed caused by COVID-19. The CDC estimates that between 38-54 million people have been stricken with the flu between October 1, 2019 and March 14, 2020 with upwards of 62,000 deaths.”
Why trace and contact?
Why is the federal government allocating billions of dollars for states to implement contact tracing programs to trace, track, monitor, investigate, and quarantine any contacts that someone testing positive might have had? This is not done for other types of flu.
We did not shut down the nation or or do massive testing and tracking of citizens for the Spanish flu, the Hong Kong flu, polio, tuberculosis, or other epidemics in America. We did not quarantine healthy people or require social distancing or masks.
What’s different now? As usual, what the government tells us is a lie to disguise their deceitful and, too often illegal, actions. The real purpose of testing and contact tracing is to build a public registry for mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations and medical certificates for social control and reduction of world population – already well-established goal of Bill Gates.
Each child in public schools will be tracked and personal information will be collected for the government.
Citizens will be required to download a “health app” on their mobile telephones. Your movements and location will be monitored by the state via satellite at all times. Every place of business, restaurant, church or public venue that you visit will require you to have the health app with a QR code before you can enter.
Should you test positive for Wuhan virus, then the government surveillance and contact tracing agency in your city/state will be notified by computer. You will be forced to quarantine in your home. If there is only one bathroom you will be quarantined in a government-run location. Your children can be removed by Child Protective Services (CPS) with a Temporary Emergency Possession Order until your quarantine period is over and you test negative.
The information on your cell telephone will be accessed by the state computer system to track where you were for the 7-10 days before you were tested. The computer program shows who came within six feet of you during that period. Those individuals will be contacted by a government contact tracer and tested. Even if they test negative, they will be forced to quarantine for 14 days. If they test positive during that period, then everyone with whom they have come in contact in the past 7-10 days will be visited by a contact tracer and forced to quarantine even though they are healthy. The cycle never ends.
Even though Abbott seems to believe that he can quarantine anybody and everybody, Judge Andrew Napolitano reminds us that the government does not have the authority to quarantine someone who is not contagious. Doing so is a violation of the Fifth Amendment. (See here.)
“...the states and feds may only quarantine those who are actively contagious and will infect others imminently. And it must present evidence of both at a trial at which it bears the burden of proof….”
Contact tracing violates the Bill of Rights of the U.S. Constitution as well as the 14th Amendment. It can be used to control an individual’s travel, social activities, religious attendance, employment, education, housing, and even participation in government funded services or medical facilities. Once a vaccine is available, the testing and tracing results potentially can be used to force individuals to be vaccinated for either the Wuhan virus or even something else against their will.
The pandemic is being used a cover for massive government overreach by would be dictators of both parties.
Texas governor signs unconstitutional trace and contact contract
In Texas, Republican Governor Greg Abbott directed the Texas Department of Health Services to sign a contract for a $295 million surveillance and contact tracing for 27 months with MTX Group. The state contract will have no legislative oversight because Abbott says he and the TDHS have the authority to implement the program without the legislature’s approval.
To make matters worse, this contract will be funded with federal money which means federal control.
The awarding of a $300 million contract to MTX with only two days of bidding is highly suspicious. The company has a record of questionable performance and no prior experience in contact tracing. It is a small company of 52 employees based in Albany, New York which leads one to wonder if they can they handle rapid recruiting, training, and managing of thousands of contact tracing employees across Texas.
No opt out from Abbott’s order
Citizens will have no ability to opt out of this program. Abbott will be using local “Health Authority Order Imposing Control Measures” for anyone the contact tracers believe have been exposed to the virus. The Control Order restricts the individual to the home, forbids any visitors, and monitors twice daily until cleared. Travel will have to be approved and the use of air or mass transit is forbidden until cleared. The individual will be required to provide detailed information about all persons with whom there has been recent contact; places visited; events and gatherings attended; and any activities participated in.
Violation of Abbott’s Control Order is a criminal offense and
can result in 180 days in jail and/or $2000 fine!
The social control that has been established under COVID-19 is going to continue to “keep Americans healthy.” But the purpose of government is not public health but to protect our God-given, unalienable Constitutional rights. This Orwellian program to surveil and track citizens reeks of those used by totalitarian regimes. We need to stop this right now!!
Action Needed! Stop the surveillance and contact tracing now!
