Nurses speak about losing their jobs to a swine flu vaccine mandate.

c/o The NewAmerican

Health freedom attorney Jim Turner, of Citizens for Health, is filing a lawsuit in Washington, D.C., today, hoping to halt the distribution of the swine flu vaccine in America. What prompted his civil action is the ruling that licensed healthcare workers in New York State must receive the vaccine or lose their jobs.

Turner’s lawsuit, the plaintiffs for which are Dr. Gary Null and other healthcare workers of New York State, will seek an injunction against the Food and Drug Administration from approving the vaccine for general distribution. “And the core of the argument,” Turner told the Natural News Talk Hour Thursday evening, “is that they have not done the proper safety and efficacy tests on the vaccine to allow it to be released at this time.”

He explained further, “The FDA is required by law to establish that a vaccine is safe and effective before it can be given to the public. We are arguing that they did not establish that the vaccine was effective, and did not establish that it was safe. They are trying to get it on the market by a waiver.” ::: MORE HERE:::

We can thank the due dilligence of Jim Babka for putting pressure on our national leaders with some of the most important people in the world : transportation workers.

Downsize DC is doing a second pass on an earlier action. If you haven’t signed up to support this effort, please do so now. Support Downsize DC’s efforts to protect the privacy of transport workers nationally by signing this petition.

FATAL FLAWS OF THE TWIC SCHEME – by Jim Babka

Please read this and send a copy of Babka’s letter to anyone you know who operates a vehicle, boat or aircraft for a living – this will affect them. I also wouldn’t hurt to send a copy to your local AFL-CIO and corresponding transportation workers union.

Jim Babka’s, DownSize DC is doing some great work to stop Real ID’s progress with his national machine, DownsizeDC.org . He’s doing a lot in Conneticut, where the public seems to be still prety sleepy about Real ID and how they will inherit it. Real ID is a now a shapeshifting monster trying to survive.  In border states it looks like Enhanced Driver’s licenses. In other coastal states it looks like some version of the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative. Enter Transportation Worker Identification Credential or TWIC.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) wants you to have a Real ID card that’s very similar to the TWIC card. But DHS is failing to implement the Real ID because state governments are resisting. Twenty one states are refusing to comply with the REAL ID. It’s probably the biggest rebellion against the federal government since the Civil War. So what can the DHS do to overcome this rebellion?

They can “pick off the herd” — hit one industry at a time until so many people have Smart Cards no one is left to resist, ” says Babka who later indicated that the commercial transport agencies and unions have been targets for Smart Card regulations.

Earlier this year TWIC, like all associations with citizens and Real ID, including TSA according to DHS were “voluntary”.

Well, now the people who didn’t volunteer their ID’s at Airport checkpoints are being added to a separate watch list. 
The consequences for failing to comply with the TWIC program are threats to transport worker’s job security. Lowell Rogers, a tugboat engineer of 23 years, talks about how a TWIC card threatens to end his career on Jim Babka’s show this afternoon.

Babka will be hosting his nationally syndicated program on GCNlive.com at 3PM EST/2PM CST /Noon PST. Archives are available for 24 hours.
