BTC – I feel it necessary to dust off a few old records that have been around only long enough to get ignored. In 2002, Jennifer VanBergen reported for TruthOut on the origins and problems with the Homeland Security Act for civil liberty.

One of particular interest is Title III of this law:

Title III concerns “Science and Technology in Support of Homeland Security.” Section 304, according to The National Gulf War Resources Center, Inc., “grants the HHS secretary extraordinary powers to declare a health emergency simply based on a POTENTIAL threat. This means that a hypothetical threat analysis from intelligence agencies that failed to warn of Sept 11th could be used as a reason to suspend civil liberties and start mandatory smallpox vaccinations.”

Editors Note: This a three-part series on the Homeland Security Act (HSA). Part 1 reviews the origins of the Act in the Hart-Rudman Commission and the Council on Foreign Relations. Part 2 discusses Cheney’s plan for global dominance and how that relates to homeland security. Part 3 details some of the HSA provisions themselves and briefly discusses what worries civil libertarians.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Charleston Area Medical Center employees who do not get the seasonal flu vaccine by the end of the day Friday are going to lose their jobs.

“The vaccine is a condition of employment” and people who do not get the vaccine will be fired, CAMC spokesman Dale Witte said.

Anyone who is not vaccinated by the end of the day Friday will not be allowed to work, Witte said.

“If they are scheduled to work, they will be taken off the schedule until the [human resources] folks and others go over the list to make sure it’s accurate,” he said. “Then it will be termination.”

BTC HUMOR- There seems to be a vacuum demand for people who want H1N1 vaccines and can’t get them. Tyson Eberly sent over this really great video featured during the debut of his local cable access program for some creative problem solving.

BTC – A preface to this piece of super creepy propaganda, is that Spain has a history of being on board to make internal chipping look cool. Ever since Verichip introduced what I call a destabilization agent of personal boundaries, much less sovereignty, of a RFID chip contained in a rice sized transparent case Bar”TH”elona discos have made it an exclusive way to “get in”.

Imagine..after an initial elite Spanish club introduction, someone possibly ushered in Raytheon’s Spanish global defense corporation to partner up with Verichip’s technology for patient identification.
They were thinking along the proposed lines of the following video:

I thought critically today about the nuances behind a glucose chip to assist less vigilant diabetics when it comes to limiting driving impairment. If you get your free marketeer hat on you will see what is good for one diabetic is not necessarily the best for all diabetics.
Healthcare decisions are often one of the last battles for privacy while someone is still alive. Decisions about allowing glucose/internal GPS system to be imported into your body should be a private decision. Ethically, there are a few closest to you that may count as Power of Attorney in the event of something bad happening. This is in contrast to a public-private decision where a government corporation makes a healthcare decision about what happens to you and your body without your consent.
So what happens when you get a market flush of any trend? You get copy cats and market raiders.
A RUN ON PIG FLU DISASTER CAPITAL
The FDA/FTC has released an importable fraud widget to report anyone who is making money off H1N1 treatments besides the U.S. government’s no-bid buddies.

Consumers are urged to purchase and consume only FDA-approved or authorized medical products to diagnose, treat, prevent, or cure infections caused by the H1N1 virus. Consumers also are urged to contact their health care provider if they have any questions or concerns about medical products or personal protective equipment.”

As of right now – Verichip and RECEPTORS LLC do not have FDA approval to diagnose Swine Flu, but will be testing their proof of concept HERE:

October 22, 2009, in New York to unveil details of their virus triage detection system for the H1N1 virus and Phase II development of an in vivo glucose-sensing RFID microchip. The companies will also provide a product demonstration of the virus triage detection system currently being developed.

The event will take place at the Grand Hyatt at 4:30 p.m. ET and feature a presentation by Robert E. Carlson, Ph.D., President and Chief Science Officer of RECEPTORS LLC, and an expert in the field of proteomics and the development of artificial receptors.
Parties interested in attending the New York event should contact Allison Tomek at (561) 805-8008 or at atomek@verichipcorp.com

A plan that officials at Seattle’s Virginia Mason Medical Center had hoped would improve patient safety and save lives has landed them in some legal hot water instead.

The Washington State Nurses Assn., on behalf of the hospital’s 500 nurses, filed a petition in federal court Oct. 1, seeking an injunction to stop implementation of the hospital’s new policy of mandatory flu shots for all employees.

“Nurses feel they don’t have a choice between getting a shot or leaving Virginia Mason,” said WSNA spokeswoman Anne Tan Piazza. “The WSNA absolutely supports flu vaccinations and we are well aware of their benefits, but we think the approach to compliance is through education and not through threats of termination.”

Virginia Mason spokeswoman Kim Davis said education efforts had achieved a vaccination rate of about 55%, which is significantly higher than the 38% national rate for health care workers, but the hospital is shooting for 100%.

“You start with health-care workers but then expand that umbrella to make it mandatory for everybody,” said Lori Price of Citizens for Legitimate Government, a Bristol, Conn.-based group that opposes government expansion. “It’s all part of an encroachment on our liberties.”

NY health workers vaccination (VIDEO) – The trend toward mandatory H1N1 vaccinations for U.S. healthcare workers is meeting resistance from unions and anti-government groups, officials said.

Hundreds of thousands of nurses, doctors and other healthcare workers are being ordered to become vaccinated as the second wave of the H1N1 pandemic spreads this fall.

The trend is fueling rumors that the H1N1 vaccine may become mandatory for everyone, said Lori Price of Citizens for Legitimate Government, a Connecticut-based group that opposes government expans

“It’s all part of an encroachment on our liberties,” Price told The Wall Street Journal in a story published Saturday.

Hospital Corp. of America, with clinics and hospitals in 20 states, is requiring its 120,000 employees to be vaccinated and the state of New York is requiring all healthcare workers to get both seasonal and H1N1 flu shots.

Mandatory vaccination diverts attention from more effective infection-control methods, such as state-of-the-art masks, said Bill Borwegen, a occupational health and safety director of the Service Employees International Union. (c) UPI
