STOP CODEX FROM COMING TO AMERICA BY TAKING THESE ACTION STEPS
(Additional Detail on each of the Action Steps may be found following their initial presentation, but it is not necessary to know all of this detail in order to send your mssg to congress.)
** Note: Beware of groups that would have you believe you can "stop Codex" by sending petitions to the US Codex Manager Dr.Ed Scarbrough. He is an unelected bureaucrat from the USDA and we have no leverage over him. He ignores all petitions. Also beware of groups that would have you believe we can stop Codex AT Codex. We can't.
We have no political leverage over the unelected bureaucrats from the world's FDA's who make the decisions at Codex. Beware of groups that would have you believe that if a country adopts model legislation patterned after DSHEA that they're "exempt" from an adverse WTO ruling against them. They're not. The groups that are telling you these things intend to DISTRACT you from the ONLY things you can do to stop CODEX: HERE THEY ARE:
1. GET OVERSIGHT ON FDA's Trilateral Cooperation Charter with Canada & Mexico.
(A) CLICK HERE TO SIGN PETITION AGAINST TRILATERAL COOPERATION CHARTER (Petition goes to Congressman Joe Barton, Chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee which conducts oversight hearings on the FDA)
(B) CLICK HERE TO SEND MSSG TO YOUR OWN CONGRESSMAN & SENATORS & THE MEDIA about FDA's Trilateral Cooperation Charter) (additional detail below all listed steps)
Why these steps are necessary: FDA is engaged in conferencing with Canada/Mexico for the purpose of creating one set of harmonized food and drug regulations for all 3 countries (with zero input from the citizens of the 3 countries.) This is a naked assault on US Sovereignty, an effort to scuttle America and to force us into a planned N.American Union. More details on the petition at (A).

ADDITIONAL DETAILS ON WHY STEPS 1-4 ARE NECESSARY---------->>>>>
1. WHY WE NEED CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT ON THE FDA's TRILATERAL COOPERATION CHARTER WITH CANADA & MEXICO
The FDA is violating the Administrative Procedures Act, and the Federal Advisory Committees Act by engaging in conferencing with their regulatory counterparts in Canada & Mexico to draft one set of food & drug regulations to cover all three countries bypassing the will of the PEOPLE in these countries(!!) This is how the FDA intends to force CODEX on the American, Canadian, and Mexican people!
This is part of a systematic plan to erase the nations of Canada, the USA & Mexico in order to force us into a planned NORTH AMERICAN UNION (patterned after the EU).
Look at what FDA is saying under SCOPE OF WORK (Trilateral Cooperation Charter):
SCOPE OF WORK
"The Trilateral Cooperation serves the mutual interests of all three countries and provides a forum for participants to discuss effective means for achieving its mission. Joint problem-solving techniques and consensual decision-making processes are used in reaching resolution of issues in a way that advances public health and gives consideration to the economic impact of health fraud. To avoid duplication and overlap, the Trilateral Cooperation should not deal with issues that are being discussed in other fora unless requested to do so as a means of solving a specific problem affecting the three countries or unless directed to do so by the Heads of Delegation. The Committee recognizes that the work under the Trilateral Cooperation is not a substitute for bilateral cooperation, nor does it impose obligations on its counterparts. Countries should use existing and new fora to discuss bilateral issues."
HOW IS THIS A THREAT?
We must never forget how the FDA and their international counterparts define "health fraud."
The world's FDA's function as trade associations for pharmaceutical companies. They are paid millions of dollars in fees from the pharmaceutical companies to put Rx drugs thru their less than scientific "approval process." Furthermore, there is a revolving door between the drug companies and the FDA as many leave the FDA to go to work for the drug companies.
The FDA's defines "health fraud" to encompass any health claim made about any non patentable natural substance, regardless of how true it is, if it cuts into the sale of Rx drugs. They also consider health fraud to include any non mainstream, alternative medical approach (any approach not involving the use of patented prescription or OTC drugs that have been thru their so called "approval" process.
Read "Why is the FDA Picking on Cherries?" and you'll see the the FDA is currently attacking the Cherry Industry, threatening to start raiding cherry orchards, unless the industry stops making health claims about the therapeutic effects of Cherries that are endorsed by the US Department of Agriculture.
"The FDA does not want the cherry industry to tell people that recent studies show that cherries contain substances that are potentially 10 times stronger than aspirin or ibuprofen for relieving pain. It does not want the public to know that substances in cherries may kill cancer cells and prevent cancer. It makes no difference whether these statements are true. What's important is that the public not be told that a natural substance (cherries) has been shown to work as well as or better than an unnatural one (ibuprofen)."
"Only drugs, according to the FDA's legal doctrine, can prevent, treat, mitigate, or cure disease. If something does those things, it's a drug. And if it's a drug, it has to be tested for its ability to do those things. In this double-speak world, no natural substance can do anything significant against disease-that is, unless it undergoes testing as a drug. Attempts at slaying this many-headed monster of convoluted truths have only made it grow new heads."
The FDA is claiming that statements made by the Cherry Industry on their websites are an extension of the labelling of their products, and they're pressuring the Cherry industry to stop making these claims. The Cherry Industry is fighting back in the courts claiming that the FDA is violating their First Amendment Right to free speech. Efforts are underway to get a bill through congress called the Health Freedom Protection Act to stop this FDA censorship.
The pharmaceutical industry and the FDA's of Canada, the USA and Mexico have no USE for national laws that "interfere" with Pharma's efforts to block the use of natural products. They have no USE for the US Constitution and its First Amendment. They have no use for laws like DSHEA, or the Health Freedom Protection Act so they're all in FAVOR of ABOLISHING AMERICA and forcing all 3 countries together into the planned NORTH AMERICAN UNION, where we'd have much less input into the legislative process than we do now and everything would be dictated to us.
This is why IAHF needs your help to pressure congress into holding OVERSIGHT HEARINGS for the purpose of STOPPING the FDA from continuing to violate the law.

2. CONGRESSIONAL OVERSIGHT NEEDED ON TRANS TEXAS CORRIDOR
This superhighway/ rail system/ oil pipeline/ water pipeline is analogous to the "chunnel" which connects England with the continent of Europe by enabling people to travel by car and rail underneath the English Channel. Just as the Chunnel made the EU possible, the TTC is intended to shove the North American Union down our throats. The North American Union is an intended prelude to an even larger dictatorship: the Free Trade Area of the Americas
While the people of Texas have gotten up in arms against this monstrosity which was shoved unaimously through their very corrupt state legislature, IAHF and allies hope to spawn national opposition to it. We want congressional oversight, and we would like to see additional websites opposing it to be created in all the states the TTC is scheduled to pass through. The TTC isn't even being built by American labor- they've imported construction workers from SPAIN to build it!!

3. KILL THE NORTH AMERICAN COOPERATIVE SECURITY ACT
The North American Security Act, S. 853 in the Senate, H.R. 2672, is ostensibly being created to "enhance our protection against terrorists" by creating a common security perimeter- essentially by erasing our borders with Canada & Mexico to create "THE NORTH AMERICAN UNION". It must be seen in the context of the (so called) Security & Prosperity Partnership of North America. (The SPP was signed by Martin, Bush, and Fox of Canada, the USA and Mexico with zero input from the citizens of these 3 nations.)
The North American Cooperative Security Act is an intended prelude to forcing the USA into first, a North American Union, then into the FTAA (Free Trade Area of the Americas). It poses as much of a threat to US sovereignty and to all of our laws as the European Union Dictatorship poses to the laws and traditions of the UK and all of its other member nations.
Lou Dobbs did a program about this threat on June 9th: “Good evening, everybody. Tonight, an astonishing proposal to expand our borders to incorporate Mexico and Canada and simultaneously further diminish U.S. sovereignty. Have our political elites gone mad?” … Lou Dobbs June 9, 2005
Aside from the fact that both Mexico and Canada are hotbeds of terrorism, and it makes zero sense whatsoever to open our borders with these countries, this pending legislation is blatantly unconstitutional and it threatens all of our existing laws, including the Dietary Supplement Health & Education Act of 1994 with harmonization to international dictates such as highly draconian CODEX vitamin standards under "development" at the UN's Codex Alimentarious Commission- where we have zero ability to influence the decisionmaking. We can only stop Codex from being forced on us if we can preserve our sovereignty.
4. PASS THE HEALTH FREEDOM PROTECTION ACT
Read "The Growing Threats to DSHEA" by Paul Anthony Taylor. By passing this bill, we can stop the FDA from blocking the making of truthful health claims on foods and dietary supplements. We can also make it harder for Congress to cave in to pressures to harmonize our dietary supplement laws to restrictive codex standards.
