How to keep an “emergency” going forever

The Naked Emperor’s Newsletter | November 19, 2022

Covid rates are dropping but you want to cling on to these new emergency powers – what to do? If Covid isn’t around, citizens won’t allow these powers to be extended will they?

Well Colorado have shown us the answer.

Governor Jared Polis signed a new Executive Order on 11 November which amended the emergency Covid rules to include Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV), influenza and other respiratory illnesses.

The Order says that “Colorado has seen a sharp increase in pediatric RSV infections and hospitalizations, in addition to patients with influenza and COVID-19, over the last two months”.

It then goes on to list the number of hospitalisations and the intensive care capacity. Therefore “if cases continue to increase, we may continue to see bed shortages across all hospital beds in Colorado as our state experiences a rise in COVID, influenza and RSV hospitalizations simultaneously”.

Due to staffing shortages facing hospitals related to COVID-19, RSV, influenza, and other respiratory illness hospitalizations and an associated decrease in capacity, including pediatric intensive care unit capacity, and to allow clinical staff to focus on patient care by reducing staff time associated with completing utilization reviews, I direct the Colorado Division of Insurance, pursuant to authority in C.R.S. §§ 10-1-108(7) and -109, to promulgate emergency regulations to reduce the administrative burdens associated with discharging, transferring, and caring for patients by temporarily suspending those utilization review requirements necessary to protect insured patients, including any or all prior authorization and preauthorization requirements.

And that is how you create a perpetual state of emergency. Add all types of respiratory viruses that you are on the lookout for because every winter hospitals will be full of people with some type of respiratory virus.

I wonder why they waited until after the elections to sign this Order? Strange. Let’s see how quickly other states amend their emergency orders as well. Maybe they should add in rain for the spring and sun for the summer (climate change) just to make sure the emergency lasts all year.

  1. From my reading of the Governor’s statement, it appears that, due to his, and the State’s, failure to provide an adequate health system, he wants to be able to declare a state of emergency – and still do nothing about the health system. If this is not the height of incompetence, then there must be a different definition in the United States.

    When the state of emergency (which lasted 960 days) was declared in Western Australia, it was based on there being a ‘pandemic’ caused by the ‘covid-19 virus’. Not that there ever was a pandemic or a virus, but there was a semi-plausible excuse. But to declare a state of emergency based on a shortage of beds and staff!!!!!! I ask you, what kind of nut is in charge?

  2. So long as the zombie population continues to elect and re-elect their tyranny masters, the problems that they complain about will continue. I wonder why there has not been a concerted effort to indict officials in the Biden administration for all of their crimes against the constitution and humanity. Well, I know the answer to that too. Even the Justice Department is compromised.
