Fans to be Willingly RFID-Chipped at Lollapalooza Concerts

August 7, 2013 Comments off

Before Its News

 

Hundreds of thousands of young and old alternative music fans lined up to willingly be tracked with RFID micro-chips at Lollapalooza in Chi-town in Chicago Friday.

The “non-removable wristbands” were provided by organizers for attendees to gain entrance to Lollapalooza music festival in Chicago’s Grant Park, that began Friday August 2nd, according to LibertyFight.com’s Martin Hill, whose article appeared on the Daily Paul website.

 

For years, innocent targeted individuals (TIs) have seemingly outlandishly complained of being involuntarily covertly micro-chipped, not just by small chips left in personal belongings, but also via “non-removable” injection.

“Hitachi holds the record for the smallest RFID chip, at 0.05mm × 0.05mm,” according to Wikipedia.

Some of those TIs have provided medical evidence of injected RFID chips to courts, such as Read more…

It’s an insect spy drone for urban areas, already in production, funded by the Government. It can be remotely controlled and is equipped with a camera and a microphone. It can land on you, and it may have the potential to take a DNA sample or leave RFID tracking nanotechnology on your skin.

This Is Not A Mosquito It’s An Insect Spy Drone For Urban Areas Already In Production Funded By The Gov

It can fly through an open window, or it can attach to your clothing until you take it in your home.

And for all you who automatically say “fake” because you don’t think the government is funding this… do some research.

Disney World’s RFID Tracking Bracelets Are A Slippery Slope, Warns Privacy Advocate

Disney wants to show you a whole new world, but not everyone is feeling the love.

On Monday, the Walt Disney Company (NYSE:DIS) announced an ambitious plan to transform the visitor experience at its Disney World Resort near Orlando, Fla. The MyMagic+ program, which will roll out this spring, combines an interactive website and mobile app with an all-purpose electronic bracelet that acts as a guest’s room key, theme-park ticket and payment account all rolled into one. The bracelets, dubbed MagicBands, will also track which rides visitors use, which characters they interact with, where they go and what they buy within the park.

The bracelets monitor behavior with radio-frequency identification technology, or RFID, a wireless tracking system that transfers data from tiny tags attached to objects. RFID has long been used to track product inventory in various industries, but it has become increasingly invasive over the last decade, with tags being implanted in I.D. badges, transit cards and even passports.

In a blog post, Tom Staggs, chairman of Disney Parks and Resorts, stated that Read more…

Before you know it all driver licenses, public work badges, bus passes, etc. will be tracked/ traced.   The Mark of the Beast is coming folks! It is a matter of time before everything is consolidated…

Judge: Texas school can force student to wear RFID badge (Credit: Oleg Golovnev /Shutterstock)

A federal judge in Texas ruled Tuesday that a San Antonio high school was permitted to expel or transfer a student if she refused to wear the school’s mandated identification badges.

Last year Northside Independent School District began issuing school IDs embedded with RFID chips, which monitor students’ movements from when they arrive at school until when they leave. One student, 15-year-old Andrea Hernandez was suspended when she refused to wear the ID badge on (albeit slightly loopy) religious grounds — her parents believed the RFID chip to be “the Mark of the Beast.”

Hernandez sued the school district, who tried to accommodate the girl and her family by saying they would remove the RFID chip from her badge, but that she would still need to wear the badge itself. Wired explained that Hernandez family continued to take issue:

The girl’s father, Steven, wrote the school district explaining why Read more…

USDA Wants RFID Tracking Technology To Be Mandatory In US Food Stamp Program

January 5, 2013 Comments off

(NTEB) “And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13:16-17)

In a little while, the above scene in Revelation 13 will become a global reality. People can no longer buy or sell without the mark of the beast. And sometimes that would mean no longer being able to eat!

The USDA is now considering biometric identification for all individuals who will want to benefit from their Food and Nutrition Services. The RFID chip may just soon be a must for everyone who does Read more…

Widespread human tracking chips inevitable?

by Mark Lockie

It may seem like an improbable scenario – and probably is – but new research has revealed growing social unease over electronic tracking technology that monitors workers’ activity, and which may evolve into implants placed directly under human skin.

Professors Nada and Andrew Kakabadse have examined developments in tracking technology already linked to company vehicles and mobile communication devices, alongside employee attitudes towards the prospect of ‘social tagging’ through Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chips.

Nada Kakabadse commented: “In 2004, the US Food and Drug Administration approved an RFID implant called VeriChip, about the size of a grain of rice, for medical purposes. Nightclubs in Rotterdam and Barcelona already offer implants to customers for entry and payment purposes. Some claim the ‘Obamacare Health Act’ makes under-the-skin (subdermal) RFID implants mandatory for all US citizens.”

Perhaps irrationally (at least in Planet Biometrics’ point of view) study participants thought the Read more…

Op-Ed: Should schools monitor students with ‘spychips’ in student IDs?

September 5, 2012 Comments off

digitaljournal

Schools have been tracking student attendance for some time,  but the methods of how students are tracked has significantly evolved over the  decades. Currently, using “spychips” in schools appears to be an issue that  keeps emerging its controversial head.

These chips, which integrate RFID technology, are embedded in  student ID cards.

Technology is available as an easy  solution, but is this really the direction society wants to go?

Schools look to “spychips” for  student ID cards

The issue of using RFID technology to  track students has emerged many times over the past several years. Recently, Digital Journal reported a story where  parents and students protestedin San Antonio, Texas after the Northside ISD  school district decided to test pilot RFID student ID cards in two of its  schools.

CIA Chief: We’ll Spy on You Through Your Dishwasher

More and more personal and household devices are connecting to the internet, from your television to your car navigation systems to your light switches. CIA Director David Petraeus cannot wait to spy on you through them.

Earlier this month, Petraeus mused about the emergence of an “Internet of Things” — that is, wired devices — at a summit for In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s venture capital firm. “‘Transformational’ is an overused word, but I do believe it properly applies to these technologies,” Petraeus enthused, “particularly to their effect on clandestine tradecraft.”

All those new online devices are a treasure trove of data if you’re a “person of interest” to the spy community. Once upon a time, spies had to place a bug in your chandelier to hear your conversation. With the rise of the “smart home,” you’d be sending tagged, geolocated data that a spy agency can intercept in real time when you use the lighting app on your phone to adjust your living room’s ambiance.

Privacy rights battle just beginning

THE ISSUE: Ruling on GPS attachment

OUR VIEW: Technology forcing need for clarification on privacy rights

The U.S. Supreme Court rightly ruled n United States vs. Jones that secretly tracking people’s movements by attaching GPS devices to their cars violated the Fourth Amendment’s ban on unreasonable searches unless police first get a warrant from a judge.

While the justices came down firmly on the side of privacy in this case, the battle is just beginning to protect privacy rights in this age of technology when more eyes are watching us than ever before.

The court’s ruling validates the belief that people have a reasonable expectation that they will not be subject to constant monitoring by the government, and that escalating secretive technological surveillance violates a person’s reasonable expectation of privacy.

“We have entered a new and frightening age when advancing technology is erasing the Fourth Amendment,” says John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute.

“Thankfully, in recognizing that the placement of a GPS device on Antoine Jones’s Jeep violated the Read more…

Edible Microchips, Biometric Identity Systems And Mind Reading Computers

January 19, 2012 4 comments

 

As technology continues to advance at an exponential rate, will we someday find ourselves living in a “scientific dictatorship” where virtually everything that we do, say and think is monitored and controlled by technology?  To many of you that may sound like a wild assertion, but just keep reading.  Our world is changing faster than ever before, and scientists have some absolutely wild things planned for our future.  As you read this, they are feverishly developing edible microchips, cutting edge biometric identity systems, and mind reading computers.  Many futurists envision a world where someday nearly all humans are embedded with microchips and have thousands of tiny nanobots living inside of them.  The idea is that we can “take control of our own evolution” and use technology to “improve” humanity.  But very few of those futurists address the potential downsides.  The truth is that all of this technology could one day be used by a totalitarian government to establish a dystopian nightmare where nobody has any liberties and freedoms whatsoever.

The world of tomorrow is not going to be anything like the world of today, and most people have no idea how dramatically the world is changing.

For instance, many people have never even heard of “edible microchips”.

Unfortunately, they are Read more…
