Mandatory RFID Chip For All Americans With Biometrics by 2014?
Newscast Media — Almost four months ago, I reported that we will soon see biometric technology implemented, which will affect the way electronic information is handled, and now it has been confirmed by The National Journal that pilots unions have entered into what are described as “high-level” and “sensitive” talks with Obama administration officials to implement a system under which pilots would use a card containing biometric information.
However, this will not just apply to pilots, it will eventually apply to everyone as demonstrated in the video above. You can now kiss your privacy goodbye, because biometrics contain the most personal information that nature uniquely assigns each individual. We should also expect them to roll out the RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chip that has been already developed.
By 2014, all Americans will be required to have electronic health records (EHR) which will include their height, weight and body mass index (BMI), or they will face a fine. This is part of the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009, that is a companion to Obamacare and was was signed into law on February 17, 2009. An excerpt of it is shown below:
(3) STRATEGIC PLAN— ‘‘(A) IN GENERAL.—
The National Coordinator shall, in
consultation with other appropriate Federal agencies
(including the National Institute of Standards and Tech-
nology), update the Federal Health IT Strategic Plan (devel-
oped as of June 3, 2008) to include specific objectives,
milestones, and metrics with respect to the following:
‘‘(i) The electronic exchange and use of health
information and the enterprise integration of such
‘‘(ii) The utilization of an electronic health record
for each person in the United States by 2014.
‘‘(iii) The incorporation of privacy and security
protections for the electronic exchange of an individ-
ual’s individually identifiable health information…”
(page 11, H. R. 1—117)
U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said, “This will push our entire health care system forward,” as she compared the advent of electronic health records to electronic banking. “Health information technology promises to bring that same transformation, convenience and reliability to the health care system,” she said.
The Obama administration warned that health care providers, including doctors and hospitals, must establish “meaningful use” of EHRs by 2014 in order to qualify for federal subsidies. If they do not comply, they will risk getting penalized in the form of diminished Medicare and Medicaid payments. Under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009, eligible health care professionals and hospitals can qualify for Medicare and Medicaid incentive payments when they adopt certified EHR technology.
To give you a little insight into how this works is, everybody who signs up will be entered into a national registry. Just like a passport card, that has an embedded RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chip in it, a Healthcare ID card that has personal information like biometrics, will be contained on it. (Sub-section of the above law says:
(iii) The incorporation of privacy and security protections for the electronic exchange of an individual’s individually identifiable health information…” )
Rather than get a card, some could opt for a chip to be implanted in their body,
perhaps the wrist, shoulder, or wherever the recipient feels comfortable with it.
This chip will have all your biometric information in it like fingerprints, face recognition, iris recognition and so forth. It’s purpose is to tie together your health records, bank accounts, financial records, credit history, criminal history and can track your movements throughout the country, just in case you attempt to hide from the government.

The government says the reason the RFID chip will have all this information is to pre-qualify who can afford what type of health services. In essence once the chip is scanned and it is deemed that you have enough money in your bank account to cover medical treatment, you won’t have to wait in line. If you don’t have the money, they can instantly pull your credit file using the chip, and determine how much credit to extend to you and at what interest rate, just like they determine the amount of student loans when you file electronically.
The whole purpose is to move us into a cashless society. Currently, the United States dollar is the most widely held reserve currency in the world. However, China, Russia and the UN are huge advocates of moving from the dollar and replacing it with the SDR (Special Drawing Rights). The Chinese have become dissatisfied with the primacy of the US currency, which they say has led to increasingly frequent international financial crises.
In a speech issued in both English and Chinese, Zhou Xiaochuan, governor of the People’s Bank of China said, “The role of the SDR has not been put into full play due to limitations on its allocation and the scope of its uses. However, it serves as the light in the tunnel for the reform of the international monetary system.”
Even though Zhou did not refer directly to the dollar, everyone who heard the speech knew exactly what his subliminal message was.
“The desirable goal of reforming the international monetary system, therefore, is to create an international reserve currency that is disconnected from individual nations and is able to remain stable in the long run, thus removing the inherent deficiencies caused by using credit-based national currencies,” Zhou added.
In the coming cashless society you won’t have to send in your 1040-EZ forms to file taxes because the government will automatically withdraw taxes from your account using the trackable chip. If you refuse to comply, they can simply turn off your chip and you won’t be able to buy or sell, since all transactions will be electronic. Retailers will also discourage consumers from using cash by slapping them with surcharges.
You already see it happening with banks where if you choose to use Direct Deposit (go cashless), they eliminate monthly fees from your account, but if you insist on depositing physical checks or cash, they charge you fees.
It will be difficult though to convince churches and houses of worship across the world to collect tithes and offerings electronically, since the preferred method is to pass the basket around.
So while on the surface this looks like it will just be used for electronic health records or airport security, it will permeate every area of your life. This will then give big government more power to control the multitudes of uninformed people.
