Please take note of the following discrepancies with regard to the "trappings" of a Presidential news conference on the Coronavirus. The first photo shows the flag, in its traditional display along with the Presidential seal on the podium from which the President speaks. However, after the National Emergency was declared on March 13, 2020, the podium took on a different look. The podium no longer displays the Presidential emblem, it merely says "The White House...Washington". Further, the flags in the background indicate a decided shift as well. Are we now under International law?
This is a two part series in which we will explore this question. In Part One, the purpose of this specific article contains two goals: (1) To illustrate that there has been a noteworthy change in the symbolic Presidential power that has been previously displayed by all Presidents in the modern era; and, (2) We will look at USC 42 and what it tells us about the loss of personal liberties and the installation of a dictatorship operating under the guise of protecting the public from a "pandemic".
These two photographs below demonstrate the change in the White House briefings following the declaration of a national emergency.

As dramatic as the change in the environment of the White House Press Room has been, the applicable statute, listed below, diplays an invocation pointing to a draconian change in the civil liberties of all Americans.
Here is what Trump just granted the Federal Government the power to do to you whatever is deemed necessary, with no statutory restrictions.
42 U.S. Code § 264.Regulations to control communicable diseases
(a) Promulgation and enforcement by Surgeon General
The Surgeon General, with the approval of the Secretary, is authorized to make and enforce such regulations as in his judgment are necessary to prevent the introduction, transmission, or spread of communicable diseases from foreign countries into the States or possessions, or from one State or possession into any other State or possession. For purposes of carrying out and enforcing such regulations, the Surgeon General may provide for such inspection, fumigation, disinfection, sanitation, pest extermination, destruction of animals or articles found to be so infected or contaminated as to be sources of dangerous infection to human beings, and other measures, as in his judgment may be necessary.
Please note the language "...and other measures, as in his (Surgeon General) judgement may be necessary". Please note the specific phrase "... in his judgement, may be necessary". This means the Surgeon General has carte blanche to do with you and your family ANYTHING he wants to with no statutory limits. Welcome to the land of Hitler, Mao and Stalin with absolute unchecked power. This declaration marks the total departure of the rule of law as there are no medical guidelines that could deny you your freedom. In the absence of qualified professional judgment, only political discretion remains. This reduces our laws to the level of "might makes right".
(d) Apprehension and examination of persons reasonably believed to be infected
(1) Regulations prescribed under this section may provide for the apprehension and examination of any individual reasonably believed to be infected with a communicable disease in a qualifying stage and (A) to be moving or about to move from a State to another State; or (B) to be a probable source of infection to individuals who, while infected with such disease in a qualifying stage, will be moving from a State to another State. Such regulations may provide that if upon examination any such individual is found to be infected, he may be detained for such time and in such manner as may be reasonably necessary. For purposes of this subsection, the term “State” includes, in addition to the several States, only the District of Columbia.
(2) For purposes of this subsection, the term “qualifying stage”, with respect to a communicable disease, means that such disease—(A)
is in a communicable stage; or
In other words, you may be imprisoned because SOMEONE (undefined as to who makes the determination) THINKS that you have become communicable. This law is written so vaguely, that the local dog catcher could judge you to be a health threat and they can do with you what they want to do with you for as long as they want. This law is a dictator's dream come true as the powers that be can now judge any undesirable or political opponent as being "potentially" unhealthy and dangerous, without any clearly defined criteria.
Are you concerned? If you are, "you ain't seen nothing yet," as the saying goes.
USC 42 brings in past Presidential Executive Orders and this is where the tyranny matches anything we might find in a country such as Communist China. This will be the topic of Part Two.
It is clear that we Americans are in uncharted territory. After the reader is exposed to Part Two in this series, it will become clear why only a fool will surrender their gun when that moment arrives. And the coming gun confiscation edict will not be issued by the US government, but by an international body.....
