And he shall make all, both little and great, rich and poor, freemen and bondmen, to have a character in their right hand, or on their foreheads. And that no man might buy or sell, but he that hath the character, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding, let him count the number of the beast. For it is the number of a man: and the number of him is six hundred sixty-six.
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.

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!


  1. Catawissa,

    It's been like this in commercial nuclear power for years. In fact, after 9-11, nuclear power station employee background checks into associations and credit histories have to be performed every five years with re-finger-printing to ensure that no employee is becoming a threat, and to ensure that no one has disguised himself as an employee. Already hand geometry readers are in routine use, and soon retina readers will become common. Everyone goes through bomb and metal detectors when reporting to work, and the new naked body scanners will be installed. Grope and feel will NOT be optional, but will be randomly performed. Everything is x-rayed. And the plants look like prison fortresses with security guard shacks mounted on 20 to 50 foot towers, and guards carrying machine guns and shot guns. There are TV camaras and infra-red sensors everywhere, and card readers at every door. Your every move is continuously monitored and tracked on computer. You have no idea.

    Now because it is expected that no one lives virtuous and moral lives, no one can be trusted. When the government allows filth like homosexual marriage and murder like abortion to flourish - even supporting it - then how can that government possibly trust the people who do those things. Thus do we have the Mark of the Beast.

    It's a Catch-22 - a vicious cycle that never ends except in cannabilistic death as society begins to feed on itself instead of creating new wealth.

  2. How vulnerable, if you can even talk about this, is a nuclear plant to attack by something carried on the person of an employee?

    I can understand background checks; that seems to be an acceptable level of intrusion into the privacy of the individual because of the possibility of sabotage. I can even understand video monitoring of activities within a plant for the same reason. I would think that there is a reasonable expectation that any employee, in any industry, would be watched as they work, whether by eye or electronically. That's what bosses do.

    Beyond that though, how do the scanning and x-rays contribute to security? Is there information that is so secret in an average nuke plant that our way of life would be jeopardized if it got out? If the fear is that a terrorist could disrupt the flow of energy through a bombing I guess I would say that he could do it by taking out the transmission system, too and that isn't guarded at all. Are nuke plants really so weak that a bomb set off in one could be that destructive? And if it is, are those weak points narrowly defined? Couldn't they be secured without the intrusion into personal liberty?

    You see what I'm getting at? It seems that the government is so cavalier in its attitude towards our God given and Constitutionally protected rights that it will ride rough-shod over them at will instead of going the extra distance to provide security that is harmonious with our humanity. Even though, in most cases, and I suspect that this is one of them, security could be maintained well and the Constitution could be followed if the government wanted it to happen.

  3. The unions, because of their dangerous embrace of socialism from their beginings, will go along with the socialist government that we have in this country. Unless the unions reject socialism, they will be part of the problem, not the solution. Juscot
