In what critics say is just the beginning, the United States House of Representatives passed a microchipping law that permits local authorities to insert microchips in disabled people in order to track their whereabouts at any time.
It is believed that the passage is working to embolden the House to continue to push the envelope in the near future so that the federal government will expand its enterprise of tracking people for its own purposes.
More than safety …
Also called Kevin and Avonte’s Law, H.R. 4919 is claimed to have been designed with the mindset that if the disabled are microchipped it will be more difficult for them to get lost and help local authorities find them.
End of the American Dream Founder and Publisher Michael Snyder reminds Americans that such intrusive technology – reminiscent of the “mark of the beast” discussed in he Bible that monitors and restricts people in the End Time – has already been in use for some time and will likely expand on a global scale … soon.
“[W]e have been microchipping pets in this country for years, and this is yet another giant step down the road toward universal microchipping,” Snyder recounted in a column he wrote for Charisma News. “We are being told that implanted microchips will make those with developmental disabilities ‘safer,’ but where does this stop? Pretty soon, there will be a huge push to microchip all children ‘for their safety,’ and once that is accomplished, it won't be too long before they will want to microchip the entire population.”
The true nature of the bill – as well as its consequences and true objectives behind it – could prove to be shocking to most Americans.
“H.R. 4919, which passed 346 to 66 in the lower chamber … mandates the U.S. attorney general award grants to law enforcement officials so that those agencies can create, establish and operate ‘locative tracking technology programs,’” the Daily Caller reports. “Additionally, the bill would also require the attorney general to consult with the secretary of health and human services and other health organizations to come up with best practices for the tracking devices.”
It is claimed that the project is rooted solely in humanitarian interests.
“[The mission of the program is to find] individuals with forms of dementia such as Alzheimer's disease, or children with developmental disabilities such as autism, who have wandered from safe environments," those behind the federally funded project insist.
Despite Snyder's claims, Snopes.com maintains that the new legislation does not provide for microchipping anyone and that microchipping disabled persons would be voluntanry, would not be injected into the body and would not be permanent.
In it together?
Both parties are behind the controversial and relatively unnoticed invasive move the nation’s top lawmakers.
“The fact that this bill was approved by a margin of almost 300 votes means that it had tremendous support from representatives in both parties,” Snyder, who authored the Bible prophesy book The Rapture Verdict, asserted. “Now we will see what the Senate will do, and then it will be up to whomever the president is at the time to either veto it or not.”
Even though it was overwhelmingly passed by Congress, several members, including Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), see behind the seemingly valid reasoning behind the project and recognize how dangerous it truly is.
"While this initiative may have noble intentions, 'small and temporary' programs in the name of safety and security often evolve into permanent and enlarged bureaucracies that infringe on the American people's freedoms,” Gohmert declared during a floor speech opposing the bill. “That is exactly what we have here. A safety problem exists for people with Alzheimer's, autism and other mental health issues, so the fix, we are told, is to have the Department of Justice start a tracking program so we can use some device or method to track these individuals 24/7."
Snyder agrees with Gohmert.
“Once the federal government gets a foot in the door in some area, it always seeks to expand that power eventually,” he impressed.
In an article written by a conservative critic on the matter of microchipping, Whitney Webb attempts to lay out the true implications of such government projects.
“Giving local police the authority to decide who is microchipped and who is not based on their mental soundness is a recipe for disaster,” Webb argues. “Though the bill specifically mentions those with Alzheimer's and autism, how long before these tracking programs are extended to those with ADHD and bipolar disorder – among other officially recognized disorders? Even the dislike of authority is considered a mental disorder known as Oppositional Defiant Disorder, which could also warrant microchipping in the future. If these programs expand unchecked, how long will it be before all Americans are told that mass microchipping is necessary so that law enforcement and the government can better ‘protect’ them? Many Americans have been content to trade their liberties for increased ‘security’ in the post-9/11 world, particularly when the state uses these talking points. Yet, as Benjamin Franklin once said, ‘those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.’"
It’s already here …
Snyder addresses those who believe that Americans would never allow such intrusive measures to be enforced beyond what is being administered to the disabled.
“[L]ook at what is going on in Dubai right now … Soon new injectable microchips that are inserted into the back of the hand will allow people to buy and sell without money,” the Christian author informed. “It might sound like something from a dystopian science fiction fantasy, but you could soon be able to pay for goods and services with a microchip that is embedded in your hand, according to Etisalat officials.”
On the surface, it looks like a convenient way for consumers to do business …
“The UAE telecoms giant unveiled new injectable microchips, which store all your credit card, ID and business card data inside, for the first time in the Middle East at GITEX 2016 in Dubai,” Snyder continued. “The technique is called bio-hacking, where an alien device is embedded on the back of the hand between the thumb and forefinger using a special syringe – medical tattoo artist Hazim Naori told 7DAYS.”
Snyder then looked at the technological advancement in light of biblical prophesy written by the Apostle John in the last book of the New Testament warning believers of what is to come …
“He causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, so that no one may buy or sell, except he who has the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name." – Revelation 13:16–17
The expert on the Last Days warns Americans that even though a full-blown microchipping system is not yet in place, the floodgates have just been opened.
“We aren't there yet, but we are heading down that road,” Snyder concluded. “And if nobody seems to object when the U.S. House of Representatives passes a microchipping law, that will only embolden them to push the envelope even further in the not-too-distant future.”
Editor's note (12/20/2016): A paragraph at the end of the first subtitled section of this article was added to note that Scopes.com maintains that Snyder makes some false claims about what the passage of the new bill means, as the website states: "The legislation does not provide for 'microchipping' anyone; in fact, it specifies that all tracking devices be non-invasive (i.e., non-implantable) and non-permanent."
