Book of Revelation 13:16-18
"On the Alex Jones Show today, a caller pointed to information posted on a union website for ironworkers spelling out details on the Department of Homeland Security’s TWIC and SWAC programs.H/T SHTF
TWIC is short for Transportation Worker Identification Credential and SWAC stands for Secure Worker Access Consortium.
TWIC “is a biometric credential that ensures only vetted workers are eligible to enter a secure construction site, unescorted,” Ironworkers Local 361 in Ozone Park, New York, explains. “Before issuing a TWIC, TSA must conduct a security threat assessment on the TWIC applicant. An applicant who, as a result of the assessment, is determined to not pose a security threat, will be issued a TWIC card.”
In other words, construction workers in New York will need permission from the TSA and DHS in order to practice their profession and earn a living. It was much the same in the former Soviet Union and authoritarian states such as China where the government determines all aspects of an individual’s life and where even the mildly rebellious are severely punished."
"This site has been created in an effort to keep the membership of Ironworkers Local 40 & 361 aware and informed about recent changes within our jurisdiction.
The Department of Homeland Security along with The Transportation Security Administration has issued a directive titled:
Transportation Worker Identification Credential or "TWIC".
It is a biometric credential that ensures only vetted workers are eligible to enter a secure construction site, unescorted. It is believed that several very large upcoming projects within Local 40 & 361's jurisdiction will be requiring workers on these projects to have TWIC credentials. Before issuing a TWIC, TSA must conduct a security threat assessment on the TWIC applicant. An applicant who, as a result of the assessment, is determined to not pose a security threat, will be issued a TWIC card.
The fee for a TWIC card will be $132.50 and the credential is valid for five years."
Is this the mark of the beast? I don't know. It's close enough that I want nothing to do with it. The thing is, this is just the beginning unless we refuse, starting right now, all of this crap, from naked scanners at airports to sobriety checkpoints to i.d. cards. The problem is that to refuse to participate will have a cost and this is what they count on.
So you better think it through now, how you'll react and what the breaking point is. Eventually, we will all be presented with a choice and we need to know our answer ahead of time.
And by the way, for all you union guys, look just how quickly you're being sold down the road by your union, you know, the guys that you send money to for protection, the ones that are in bed with and giving it up to the government. Boy, they're sure watching out for you!
And you get to pay them a little extra something for the privilege!
