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.


...tested before you have it surgically inserted. Unless you enjoy starvation?

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.

Philippines, Honduras Are Embracing RFID Technology To Track Citizens' Movements


by Tyler Durden
Sat, 03/10/2018 - 16:30


In the not-too-distant future, law enforcement will be able to easily track our movements thanks to microchips, which some workers - as we’ve previously reported.

Indeed, some people are happily lining up to be microchipped - even throwing parties to celebrate their coworkers embracing the microchipping phenomenon, without any regard to how this technology could be used to further totalitarian aims.

As technology that tracks our movements becomes more widespread, an unassuming article in a trade journal about RFID technology - which uses radio signals to track movements of people or products - highlights a portentous development: Honduras, the Philippines and the Cayman Islands are deploying license plates with RFID technology to help track their citizens’ movements on highways and other roads.

The specific technology being used by these three countries are called the IDePlate and IDeSTIX. The former is implanted in license plates while the latter is in innocuously attached to a car’s windshield. Together, they allow authorities to track their citizens, while also providing a fallback in case a license plate is stolen.



The RFID technology, developed by the Dutch firm Tonnjes E.A.S.T, uses cryptography to verify the owner of a car, which can then be ascertained by the operator of a scanner similar to the license plate scanners that are already in wide use by police in the US (which, as we pointed out several years ago, will soon be operated by drones).

Tonnjes offers governments the hardware needed to fabricate and install the tags, while also providing the software to program them.

The RFID-enabled plate is designed to be forgery-proof, says Jochen Betz, Tönnjes' managing director. The UCODE DNA IC uses cryptographic authentication based on the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES). Each time a tag is interrogated, it generates a new AES calculation based on its unique crypto key, which the reader receives and is programmed to verify. That ID number can then be linked to data about the vehicle and registration in a database.

By using both the IDePlate and IDeStix, the system enables users to identify any misuse of license plates. The problem with plate identification alone, the company explains, is that it cannot detect if the wrong plate is attached to a car. "Plate theft is very difficult to avoid," Betz states, so the IDeStix provides a level of redundancy. The IDeStix is a hologram-printed windshield sticker that is placed on the window's interior.

The RFID-enabled sticker can be interrogated simultaneously with the plate tag, and can then respond with its own encrypted code that is linked to the vehicle's information. Tönnjes sells the RFID-enabled blank or finished plates to government agencies and offers equipment to emboss a plate number. They can then use their own software to link each tag's encoded RFID number with the plate ID.

While governments are just beginning to roll out these systems, RFID Journal notes that one potential complication in rolling out the windshield-sticker tags (which, again, are necessary to compensate for license-plate theft) is the number of tags already attached to vehicles, mostly by their manufacturers, to track their movements.

When it comes to the capturing and filtering of data, Betz notes, one software-based challenge for a system like this is the large number of RFID tags already attached to parts of most modern vehicles. In fact, he estimates, there can be 15 or more RFID tags on a single car, most attached to parts that were being tracked by the manufacturer prior to the car's sale. "We don't want to talk to 17 tags [on a single car]," he states. Therefore, the system is designed to screen out all tag reads that are not recognized as part of the IDePlate system.

In the Cayman Islands, the RFID-tagging system was adopted last year, with the island’s government installing checkpoint readers (also created by Tonnjes) to capture vehicles’ information.

In the Cayman Islands, the system was taken live in 2017, with approximately 50,000 vehicles now equipped with the RFID-enabled plates and windshield stickers. Between five and 10 checkpoint readers provided by Tönnjes are scheduled to be installed around the county. The company supplies the middleware and software that captures the tag ID reader data and feeds that information, linked to the vehicle IDs, to the Cayman Island government's vehicle database. The reader installation is posing a unique challenge, Betz says, since the devices had to be mounted on hurricane-proof gantries. The Cayland Islands government needs to ensure that the gantries would be able to sustain high winds.

The Philippines has ordered millions of plates to begin rolling out its own system…

In addition, the Land Transportation Office (LTO), a department of the Philippine Ministry of Transport, has hired Tönnjes to deliver 3.25 million of its license plates for cars and motorcycles. The government is also purchasing IDeSTIX windscreen labels for 775,000 cars, and IDeSTIX Headlamp Tags for 1.7 million motorcycles.

And Turkey is also piloting the technology...

Turkey has also piloted the technology with vehicles on a testing course of the country's traffic police, while a trial in Russia tracked the movements of public buses throughout the city of Kazan. In addition, Tönnjes and Kirpestein are in discussions with the government of the Netherlands to conduct an open-road pilot, and is also in talks with vehicle authorities in that country regarding further pilots of the technology.

...Which means it’s only a matter of time before it arrives in the US...

Estonia Expands Massive DNA Grab Of 100,000 Citizens


by Tyler Durden
Thu, 04/05/2018 - 05:45


Alarm bells are ringing in Northern Europe, over the Estonian government’s latest attempt to take a massive number of genetic samples from its citizens.

Science, technology, and a government have usually been the perfect trifecta in every dystopian sci-fi thriller, as elected/unelected officials tend to gravitate towards all-seeing, all-knowing and all-powerful — over the mindless masses who unknowingly surrender their freedoms for comfort.

This seems to already be the case in the tiny former Soviet nation of Estonia, as its leaders have pushed for all things digital. The government has made it a top priority to embrace blockchain technology, provide internet access to all, and embark on the complete digitization of its citizens on one large platform — all owned by the government. So, it comes as no surprise, when the Estonian government has been quick to move in the creation of a biological database that collects DNA sequences of its citizen. Through mass surveillance programs, Estonian government will not only know what their citizens are searching on the internet, but will also have the knowledge of personal genetic information: ancestry charts, genetic composition, health history, and anything else that can be extracted from an Estonian’s double helix. So much knowledge in one organization is absolutely terrifying.




Starting immediately, the Estonian government will publicly launch the program to recruit and genotype 100,000 residents of the country as part of its National Personalized Medicine campaign. In the first run, the government projects an eight percent DNA grab of its total population. If successful, all indications are pointing to more massive grabs, as government officials are racing to construct its national DNA database.

The genetic testing initiative is a joint development program of the Ministry of Social Affairs, the National Institute for Health Development and the Estonian Genome Center of the University of Tartu, which currently maintains the nation’s DNA database of around 50,000 citizens.




In return for the precious genetic information, the Estonian government will offer citizens personalized health information that could prevent future illnesses. Each participant will receive a personalized genetic report, which offers lifestyle and health advice based on genetics. The reports can only be accessed on the government’s national e-health portal.

“The government wants to develop its healthcare system by offering all its residents genome-wide genotyping that will be translated into personalized reports for use in everyday medical practice through the national e-health portal. The country has many encrypted digital solutions incorporated into government functions that link the nation’s various databases through end-to-end encrypted pathways.”​
“Today we have enough knowledge about both the genetic risk of complex diseases and the interindividual variability of the effects of medicines in order to start using this information systematically in everyday healthcare,” said Jevgeni Ossinovski, Minister of Health and Labour. “In cooperation with the National Institute for Health Development and the University of Tartu, we will enable another 100,000 people to join the Estonian biobank, in order to boost the development of personalized medicine in Estonia and thus contribute to the advancement of preventive healthcare.”​
According to Estonian Genome Center of the University of Tartu, the Estonian Government has “allocated 5 million euros for the initiative during 2018.”

“The project will be coordinated by the National Institute for Health Development, whose task is to develop and implement procedures and principles for the effective implementation of scientific research in medicinal practice.”​
Paula Dowdy, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Illumina, Europe, Middle East, and Africa said:

“As the technology provider for the Estonian Genome Center, Illumina is delighted that this ambitious project has reached this stage. Using our InfiniumTM Global Screening Array to further develop personalized medicine in Estonia will provide physicians with genomic information that will lead to better health outcomes in the future.”​
Andres Metspalu, Director of the Estonian Genome Center at the University of Tartu, embraces the genetic initiative to triple the size of its national DNA database.

“We are glad that with the support of this project the results of the long-term work of the Genome Center will be transferred into practical medicine, and it will also give a further boost for our future research. The university will also contribute to the creation of a feedback system for the biobank participants, and to training healthcare professionals to give patients feedback based on genetic information.”​
As it now stands, the Estonian government publicly launched the first phase of a massive DNA grab that aims to acquire genetic information from 8 percent of the total population. While it is still unknown why the government is suddenly rushing to triple the size of its DNA database, there is a risk that future DNA grabs could become mandatory. All of Europe should be watching the developments currently unfolding in Estonia because government DNA grabs could be coming to a region near you.

define "mental disabilities", who is normal ?
Is dyslexia a mental disabilities ?
Is forgetting to do something a mental disability ?
Is not going to koleg, due to a mental disability ?
Is voting for the bitch a mental disability ? ooops that will chip a lot them.

This is great news! Over time these chips will become so convenient. We will be able to make all our purchases on them, be identified by them, have all our personal records stored on them and they will even include GPS tracking.

Gone are the days of forgetting your wallet, getting loss or unable to be identified. Gosh, I just love technology!

Future generations won't be able to fathom what life was like before the chip. To not have one will be frightening!

Total Control: New Measures Toward Global Totalitarianism


by Tyler Durden
Wed, 04/25/2018 - 23:05


Authored by Jeremiah Johnson via SHTFplan.com,

For those who have read “1984” by George Orwell, it is almost prophetic in its depth and accuracy. The reason that the warning has not been heeded is that change takes place with glacial slowness. Sometimes the changes take so long they dull the senses and we become inured to “more bad news,” or we just discount it continually. No matter what our reaction, the march toward global totalitarianism proceeds, with or without our consent or even our attention.




The slow march is deliberate. The reason for this is simple. The generation/group of people between the ages of approximately 40 to 60 are of an age who still have a sense of nationalism and grew up/experienced their formative years without that complete socialist indoctrination inflicted upon the youth of today. For the youth, there is no escape from it on their own, because they have no point of reference with which to identify and compare it to what has been forced upon them now by indoctrinators (termed “educators”). The new “all for the communal hive” mentality has been crafted by those in power and carried out by teachers.

So, a deliberate and systematic “ratcheting” up and down of the speed Wcof changes (the institution of new totalitarian controls) varies. Those in power need to eliminate those between 40 to 60 years old, or “engulf” them by numbers of the new manipulated youth and then just “vote” them out of effectiveness. The “Tyranny of the Majority” perfected to an art form. Obama couldn’t finish the job in 8 years…but the sporadic ratcheting just took a new twist.

It was reported that Bill Gates is joining a group of investors for an initial investment of about $1 billion dollars. They are going to back a company based in Seattle, WA called EarthNow that will endeavor to emplace 500 satellites above the Earth.

When the emplacement is complete, every inch of the globe will be able to be surveilled in real time.

The Daily Mail wrote a good piece on it on 4/19/18 that seemed to run unnoticed. A few other networks picked it up and reported on it, with the most summarized version being a piece entitled “Surveillance of Entire Earth, Big Brother Satellite Army,” by Battle For World.

EarthNow will provide this complete surveillance to “high value enterprise and government customers,” in other words: Mega-Corporations and Government.

There’s more afoot. The article, “Compulsory Biometric ID Announced by European Commission,” by Virginia Hale came out on 4/17/18. Here’s an excerpt:

“The European Commission has announced plans to make biometric ID cards compulsory across the bloc which will allow authorities to bar “terrorists and criminals” from accessing money and other services. Plans to introduce mandatory ID cards across all 28 EU member states — including Britain — have been in development for more than two years in Brussels as part of the Commission’s goal of building an effective “security union”, Die Welt reports.​

Set to be equipped with data including the holder’s fingerprint, the cards would be designed to tackle identity fraud and make it harder to falsify documents, according to Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos. “We have to tighten the screws until there is no room left for terrorists or criminals and no more means for them to carry out attacks,” he told the German newspaper on Monday. “This means that they must be barred from accessing money, counterfeit documents, weapons and explosives, and at the same time prevented from being able to cross our borders undetected.”​

Tightening the screws, eh? But none of those measures will restrict the true criminals…the “partners” of national governments…who access money, counterfeit documents, weapons, and explosive…they do the same things they claim to be “preventing.” All in the “interests of public safety,” and all under the Color of Law, at the expense of the citizen-beeves.

Think this isn’t coming here, to the United States? Think again. The biggie that they want now is the DNA. If you recall, I wrote a piece last Fall that mentioned how the Baltimore Ravens Football Administration tried to give out “free DNA kits” on opening day to fans. It was stopped in the “interests of public health” where the fans would have swabbed their mouths and dropped it in a vial…all to “find out their ancestry,” etc. Not quite. They wanted to see if people would voluntarily give away their DNA.

Myriad Genetics (the “inventors” of the Brica system of breast cancer detection) tried to patent genes they collected, and the courts struck it down. Little by little, the paradigm shifts, however, and recently you’ve been hearing some “murmurs” about DNA information for both ID cards (Driver’s Licenses, for now) and to obtain a firearm…as it is mandatory in some states already to submit biometric information prior to purchasing a pistol or rifle.

On 4/12/18, an article came out entitled “Estonia offers free genetic testing in nationwide experiment,” by Jari Tanner of AP, and here’s an excerpt:

“Estonia has started offering residents free genetic profiling in a nationwide experiment aimed at minimizing risks for typical diseases and encouraging a healthier lifestyle through personalized data reports. Lili Milani, a researcher with the Estonian Genome Center at the University of Tartu, said Thursday the scheme kicked off in March and will initially cover some 100,000 volunteers in the Baltic country of 1.3 million. Participants are required to donate DNA samples from blood and give consent to storing their data to the Estonian Biobank, which has collected health records and biological samples from Estonians since 2000.”​
Do you like that one? “Required” and “give consent” for storing their data, as if it’s a service. The Estonians have been giving samples to a biobank that has been actively collecting physical samples for the past 18 years.

This is to obtain a DNA “fingerprint” from everyone. It is a worldwide collection activity taking place right under our noses and before our eyes.

As you can see, they’re pushing their “family-friendly” activities more and more…using the “voluntary” trick at first…but eventually it will become mandatory. It already happens in the U.S. When you have a surgical procedure or operation they take tissue and blood samples and save them in a repository, ostensibly to “compare with later tests,” etc., etc. The samples are frozen and kept by labs who have genetic repositories, such as Myriad Genetics.

So, Bill Gates and his allies are going to emplace a global surveillance system of satellites, biometric IDs are being pushed and finalized for all of Europe, and genetics collection facilities are in “overdrive” worldwide.

See the writing on the wall and don’t ignore it. They are moving toward global governance in every nation. Orwell is no longer alive, but his writings were a warning for all of mankind that we would all do well to heed before it’s too late.

Would YOU share your DNA with the government? US wants a million people to share their genetic data and health habits in controversial experiment

  • On Sunday U.S. will open nationwide enrollment for an ambitious experiment
  • Researchers hope to learn why some escape illness and others don't, and better customize ways to prevent and treat disease
  • Congress has authorized $1.45 billion over 10 years for the project

define mental disabilities. Constitutionalist? Freedom lover? Anti Government? If they think they have the power to chip one category of people then they think they have the power to chip everyone.
You beat me to it.

What exactly are the parameters for "mental disability"? Heck, health care, government and insurance organizations can't even agree on a universal definition for physically handicapped let alone the nuances for mental incapacities.

Then, as we have seen time and time again, government stretch any definition to beyond the limits of insanity. As @Cigarlover mentioned, if you stand up for your rights as a Constitutionalist or report on government wrong doing will the government declare you mentally unstable to silence you?

Although we may not know it, we have, in our day,
witnessed the birth of the Therapeutic State. This is perhaps the major
implication of psychiatry as an institution of social control.

--Thomas S. Szasz, Law, Liberty, and Psychiatry:
An Inquiry Into the Social Uses of Mental Health Practices,
The Macmillan Company, New York, 1963, p. 212.


If you talk to God, you are praying;
If God talks to you, you have schizophrenia.

Google's disturbing vision of TOTAL data collection: Leaked video reveals a Black Mirror-style future in which technology could be used to control the behaviour of entire populations

  • The video was made two years ago by Nick Foster, the head of design at X
  • Titled 'The Selfish Ledger', it details how technology can collect a wealth of data
  • This data can be compiled into a ledger that details your actions and preferences
  • This can be used to control behaviour, help you reach goals and reshape society
  • Google admits the video is 'disturbing', but stresses it is a thought experiment

With all this data...... they control you, politicians, jobs, they understand your thinking, they know what you have researched, if you look for patents they can monitor your email with others so they beat you to it.

They know you............ better than you know you.....

Get the feeling your simply a mouse in a maze?

Thousands In Sweden Have Implanted Microchips Under Their Skin

by Tyler Durden
Sun, 05/20/2018 - 08:45


More than 3,000 people in Sweden have implanted tiny microchips beneath their skin to replace their credit card information, identification, keys, train tickets, among other everyday items, Agence France-Press announced Sunday.




The implant, which is about the size of a grain of rice, utilizes Near Field Communication (NFC) technology, also found in credit cards, debit cards, key fobs, and smartphones. This technology is considered “passive,” which means the microchip stores data that can be read by other devices but cannot read data themselves.







This might resemble an Orwellian nightmare to many, but in Sweden, residents are flocking to get these implanted microchips by “convenience over concerns of potential personal data violations,” AFP explained.

Governments in Europe quietly experimented with embedding the small chip in humans in 2015 in Sweden, and several other countries in the region, before the recent rollout.

“Swedes have gone on to be very active in microchipping, with scant debate about issues surrounding its use, in a country keen on new technology and where the sharing of personal information is held up as a sign of a transparent society,” AFP notes.​

Ulrika Celsing is one of 3,000 Swedes with a microchip implanted in her hand — a process called “biohacking.” The 28-year-old told AFP, “It was fun to try something new and to see what one could use it for to make life easier in the future.”

Celsing explained that the microchip has turned into an “electronic handbag” and has even replaced her gym card.

She can even book a train ticket online, and then use her hand like a ticket to board a train.

While the tiny microchips can store personal data that can be extracted by other devices, they are considered passive — which means the chip cannot read data themselves. Meanwhile, some still have concerns that the progression of this technology could jeopardize personal security.

“I don’t think our current technology is enough to get chip hacked,” Celsing told AFP. “But I may think about this again in the future. I could always take it out then.”

” Sweden has a track record on the sharing of personal information, which may have helped ease the microchip’s acceptance among the Nordic country’s 10 million-strong population. Citizens have long accepted the sharing of their personal details, registered by the social security system, with other administrative bodies, while people can find out each others’ salaries through a quick phone call to the tax authority,” AFP said.​

There are still serious privacy and security concerns associated with biohacking Swedes. Regarding privacy, corporations will have unprecedented access to personal data of consumers and or employees.

In the fast-approaching dystopic future, corporations and government could soon be collecting private data on their citizens via implanted microchips.

Also, the security risk behind any wireless technology leaves the device vulnerable to hackers, who will eventually discover wireless methods to steal personal data stored on the microchip.

However, Jowan Osterlund, a piercings specialist and advocate of biohacking Swedes, “brushes off fears of data misuse and conspiracy theories,” said AFP.

Osterlund argues if Swedes carried their data on them all the time, they would be in better control of where their data went. He has been an organizer of “implant party,” a gathering where the piercings specialist injects microchips into millennials.

What could go wrong?… Sweden is in the beginning innings of biohacking its civilian population and ushering in a dystopic future, where government and corporations will have an unprecedented amount of data on its population. In other words, the country is turning its citizens into cyborgs.

Hahahaah, what could go right ?
Once you are chipped, you can ALSO be replicated/duplicated, electronically, and then you could be accused of being anywhere or doing anything & suffer the consequences. The possibilities are endless.
