    Maybe we should enact a Citizen's Bill mandating the chipping of any and all politicians, judges, lawyers so they can be tracked and barred from any political activity, including ruling, legislating and voting.

    "Ok, brother Keef, what is REALLY going on?"

    "Sure, brother Search and Destroy, so glad you asked."

    Thee CHIP is HERE. They need guinea pigs to implant and work out any bugs. (Reaction to implant, electronic hardware/software, bla bla bla).

    MI patients will work just perfectly for now, so yours (that's YOUR own special CHIP, Mr. SEARCH) will be tested before you have it surgically inserted. Unless you enjoy starvation?

    Ok, enough chit chat. Time to party with da boys...:beer:

    Would you get your travel card implanted into your HAND? 3,000 Swedish commuters are now using microchips to pay for their journey
    • In a new BBC interview it was revealed that 3,000 customers use the service
    • The firm does not microchip people itself, and they must have it done elsewhere
    • But several companies in Sweden already offer the service to their employees

    White House wants to end Social Security numbers as a national ID | Ars Technica

    White House wants to end Social Security numbers as a national ID

    US government is examining the use of a “modern cryptographic identifier.”
    David Kravets - 10/3/2017, 5:00 PM

    Rob Joyce, the White House cybersecurity czar, said on Tuesday that the government should end using the Social Security number as a national identification method.

    "I believe the Social Security number has outlived its usefulness," said Joyce, while speaking at The Washington Post's Cybersecurity Summit. "Every time we use the Social Security number, you put it at risk."

    One problem with the Social Security number, he said, is that a victim of identity theft cannot get it changed after it has been stolen.

    Joyce's comments come a month after the Equifax hack, in which hackers gained access to the Social Security numbers of as many as 143 million Americans.

    Why the Equifax breach is very possibly the worst leak of personal info ever
    "It's a flawed system that we can't roll back after a breach," he said.

    The Social Security number, originally a code for federal retirement benefits, has grown to become a personal identifier used for everything from getting a job to buying auto insurance.

    The Hill said that Joyce has "raised the issue" with the Trump administration. Bloomberg said the Trump administration has asked federal departments and agencies "to look into the vulnerabilities of employing the identifier tied to retirement benefits, as well as how to replace the existing system."

    Joyce said, "It's really clear there needs to be a change."

    After huge Equifax breach, CEO “retires”
    Joyce's comments came the same day as Richard Smith, the former Equifax CEO, told the House Energy and Commerce Committee that it is time to move beyond the Social Security number as a national identifier.

    "The concept of a Social Security number in this environment being private and secure—I think it's time as a country to think beyond that," Smith testified. "What is a better way to identify consumers in our country in a very secure way? I think that way is something different than an SSN, a date of birth, and a name."

    And now what?
    Joyce said the government is examining the use of a "modern cryptographic identifier," like public and private keys.

    "I personally know my Social Security number has been compromised at least four times in my lifetime. That's just untenable," Smith said.

    According to Bloomberg, financial services firm Cowen said in a research note to investors that the White House's plotting of a move to a new form of identification might stall congressional efforts to regulate the credit industry.

    The "White House may be indirectly coming to Equifax's rescue," Cowen wrote. "This reduces the risk of business-model-busting legislation such as a requirement that consumers opt-in to a credit bureau collecting their data."

    Mastercard Pushes Biometrics, Banks Follow

    Posted on January 26, 2018 by Yves Smith
    By Don Quijones of Spain, the UK, and Mexico, and an editor at Wolf Street. Originally published at Wolf Street

    Mastercard has set a deadline for widespread use of biometric identification for its services across the whole of the EU: April 2019. Mastercard Identity Check, currently available in 37 countries, enables individuals to use biometric identifiers, such as fingerprint, facial, and iris recognition, to verify their identities when using a mobile device for online shopping and banking. The technology is not mandatory for customers, but from next year it will be vigorously promoted throughout the EU and many consumers will welcome it.

    The impact will be felt not just by consumers but also by most European banks, since any bank that issues or accepts Mastercard payments will have to support identification mechanisms for remote transactions, alongside existing PIN and password verification. The deadline will also apply to all contactless transactions made at terminals with a mobile device.

    Citing research it carried out with Oxford University, Mastercard says that 92% of banking professionals want to introduce biometric ID. This high number shouldn’t come as much of a surprise given the vast untapped value consumer data holds for banks and corporations as well the preference most banks have for electronic transactions. The study also claims that 93% of consumers would prefer biometric security to passwords, which is a surprise given the array of thorny issues biometrics throws up, including the threat it poses to privacy and anonymity and its deceptively public nature.

    “A password is inherently private,” says Alvaro Bedoya, Professor of Law at Georgetown University. “The whole point of a password is that you don’t tell anyone about it. A credit card is inherently private in the sense that you only have one credit card.”

    Biometrics, on the other hand, are inherently public, he argues. “I do know what your ear looks like, if I meet you, and I can take a high resolution photo of it from afar,” says Bedoya. “I know what your fingerprint looks like if we have a drink and you leave your fingerprints on the pint glass.” And that makes them easy to hack. Or track.

    According to Mastercard, such concerns are not nearly as important to its customers as the promise of convenience, speed and ease of use. “[Biometrics] will be of great benefit to everyone: consumers, retailers and banks,” said Mark Barnett, President, Mastercard UK & Ireland. “It will make the purchase much smoother, and instead of having to remember passwords to authenticate, shoppers will have the chance to use a fingerprint or a picture of themselves.”

    In other words, consumers will not have to use safer two-factor authentication — biometrics plus a PIN or password — if they don’t want to. Convenience is, as ever, the watchword. Card companies, banks and online retailers have good reason to prioritize speed and convenience. The quicker and easier the payment method, the more likely consumers are to complete the transaction. Compared to other methods, such as one-time SMS passwords, biometric authorization can decrease the “abandoned basket” rates by as much as 70%, according to the study.

    VISA and it has just published a similar report claiming that consumers in India are equally keen to use biometrics for authentication. In this case a staggering 99% of the people surveyed said they are personally interested in using at least one biometric method to verify their identity. An equal number of participants — another staggering 99% — said they are interested in using at least one biometric method to make payments. VISA will no doubt be happy to oblige.

    The roll-out of biometric-authenticated payments across Europe, in India, and in Mexico, is merely the latest example of the accelerating encroachment of biometrics into everyday life. Most national passports these days include biometric data. Driver licenses in the US (which serve as de facto ID cards) already have them or soon will. Meanwhile, millions — perhaps soon billions — of people have volunteered their digital fingerprints to log into their smartphones and other digital devices. In other words, people are already giving away their most private data to work, communicate, cross borders, or get on planes.

    In China, where privacy concerns are given even less importance than in the U.S. or Europe., authorities have been collecting DNA samples, fingerprints, eye scans and blood types of millions of people in the province of Xinjiang, the only Chinese territory apart from Tibet where ethnic Han Chinese are not in the majority.

    In Macao Chinese gamblers taking out money from some ATMs have to look into a camera for six seconds so facial-recognition software can confirm their identity. “This is aimed at illicit outflows of capital from China,” Sean Norris, Asia Pacific managing director at Accuity in Singapore, told Bloomberg. “It’s aimed at people drawing out money in Macau, going to the casino, betting very little, getting forex from there and moving it.”

    Throughout the Chinese mainland consumers hand over personal information to e-commerce, mobile payment and food-delivery apps on their smartphones without giving it a second thought. “They’re not well-educated about how privacy should be important to them,” said Simic Chan, a senior analyst at Fung Global Retail & Technology in Hong Kong. “They feel it’s a norm to have their data collected.”

    While China may be leading the way in forcing biometric tracking on consumers, there’s a long trail of countries and companies not that far behind. And as Mastercard’s massive push into biometrics shows, it’s not just governments and technology firms wanting to use it.

    The chip won't be the first problem. It's currently on a very long term track and right now is just one more of the many distractions thrown out there to evaluate reactions for future use, although I agree that later this century it will probably become standard practice.


    It's more important to learn from the things they do NOT mention in the media, than the things they do mention.

    Buying things and especially buying food are talked about a lot. Nukes, mini-nukes and over-population, environmental damage is talked about a lot.

    What is not talked about is the super bug programs, even though those have been around for at least 5 decades with advanced, ongoing programs in at least 4 of the biggest power nations.

    You can refuse the chip operation but it's much harder to stop breathing in air.

    Alaska, Siberia and other very remote locations may indeed provide some protection if/when a massive global bio style path is selected. You may or may not be safe in that area but it does seem better than most places on the planet to make it through.

    TPTB want to have stockpiles of all the vaccines, they are leading and funding all the scientific studies and clinical trials currently taking place. The media hasn't touched the subject for more than 20 years.

    Speaking of 20 years, well only 18 at this point, that is how long the chip for humans has already been around. Search "Digital Angel". Yes, it is a commercial product. Rest assured, it has been "upgraded" in both power and in smaller size since then. The number in service at this point is unknown, at least to me. Considering the reports since the introduction of D.A. the numbers are certainly in the hundreds of thousands already if not millions. The chip has been wildly popular for CEOs and other corporate officers as well as in government officials throughout South America, countries of "the soft underbelly of Europe" and in various persons throughout the Middle East. In the Slavic countries the chip has popular appeal among the young who use it to pay the cover and fore their beverages at discos and night clubs. Quite popular in the USofA also among the "tech-set" and most below the age of 35, particularly along the west coast.

    Hopefully you have noticed that NO ONE is being forced to accept the chip. All be freewill choice based on fear, convenience and the usual motivations of humans. Just spreading like a cancer across the population of earth.

    Digital tech keeps marching forward and the same or similar tech found in the D.A. can now be found in inks (think tattoos here), in medicines (think mandatory vaccination) and other products coming your way. Trump will NOT be stopping or even changing this. Doubtful if he even addresses it.

    Rather than think the prophesy of the bible is playing out I believe the bible is actually a script being played out on a global scale by....you guessed it....TPTB.

    Think about it. It's the perfect mind fuck!!!

    In a weird way you are right. Prophecy would seem much like a script especially as the prophecy becomes clear and understood. However, following or acting from a script is a deliberate and intentional act. The fulfilling of prophecy to fulfil prophecy is not. This is what separates a script from prophecy. A prophecy of future actions is predicated on "normal" human action of people unaware of or lacking knowledge of the relevant prophecy yet acting to fulfil that prophecy due to the depth of knowledge of human nature and a genuine foreknowledge of what humans will actually achieve rather than what they could achieve or whatever the source of the prophecy wants them to achieve or believes they will achieve. These differences become clear as humans move forward in time.

    Honestly, few Christians and Jews realize and even fewer understand that prophecy is BOTH a foretelling (prediction of FUTURE events) and a forthtelling (a revealing of eternal truths applicable with an urgency attached in the here and now). Humans think they know and/or understand what is happening now and why and are quick to dismiss such forthtellings in favor of unlocking the knowledge of the future events. If one cannot understand the now, how in the hell can they understand the future? Time for these folks to take a deep breath, get over their own ego, their own arrogance, their own ignorance and get to work on understanding the forthtellings, the basis of NOW, the truths eternal that apply to ALL life and humans in particular in the here and now. Yes, time to get grounded once again in the here and now. Time to shore up the fundamentals in one's life. Why? That both the now AND the future become clear.

    An excellent example is Trump's election. Best election of my lifetime! Trump has been quite divisive. It pushed ALL people to their political cores...not left or right as those are false terms but to the fundamental difference between MORE government (similar to those called the left...despite their cries for anarchy) and LESS government (similar to those on the right...the exercise of responsibility and self control despite their cries for strong rule). It's been very entertaining! Unfortunately, this means that it has all been very distracting also since in the greater scheme of things the politics of ANY country or nation are little more than a speck of dust easily cleaned off and having no impact on truths eternal and barely a minor impact on the future as humanity in general and Jews and Christians in particular as humanity moves forward in time.

    Prophecy like the prophecies of Baal, the prophecies of astrologists, the necromancers, the witches and sorcerers of the world work ONLY because the source of those prophecies has, at that point, a higher level of control over the affairs of this, his world. He has NO control over the earth or the heavens beyond this earth, only the world upon this earth. even that is limited in extent and in time/duration. Yes, this means that markets, politics, education, entertainment, the real "kingdoms of this world", are indeed his and under his control and are used to achieve both his ends and his end. However, as much as he pretends to be and as much as he wants to be, he is NOT omniscient. Because of this God has access and through those who believe and act on his word, the plans and desires of the one who owns this world are often thwarted and are kept in line with the prophecies and timing of God. Sucks to be a loser, eh?

    For us humans, the details can be difficult to sort out. This is why it falls on our shoulders to use that lump on our shoulders to sort out just what the hell is really going on. Ain't gonna happen without a working knowledge and understanding of the forthtellings.. Humans are quite skilled at concocting all kinds of reasons for everything. Money, drugs, greed, skin color, religion, aliens..yeah we see this EVERY day. Few look to what has been forthtold. Despite knowing Occam's Razor, humans always poo-poo simplicity whenever possible in favor of the illogical and complex.. It shows how adult, mature and wise we are in the ways of the world. I'll give y'all a moment to let that soak in.

    Yes, the foretold future is still on track and unfolding before us today. The details of how it will unfold become slightly more clear everyday and the BIG detail of WHEN it will happen will ever and always be unknown until such time as it upon ALL of humanity. Yes, there will be indications, signs if you will, of it's approach. Those signs have been and are popping up ALL THE TIME over the past few decades and are showing more frequently as we continue to move forward. Yes, the beginning of the end is close at hand. And Trump has NOTHING to do with it! Neither does Killary. Neither does Putin or Xi Jinping, Macron, all their predecessors or any other "world leaders". Why? Because it all comes to fruition according to God's timetable and according to His will. It's out of their hands as much as it out of our hands. It all moves forward as God has foretold by His prophets.

    Indeed, these are exciting times.
