The Injectable ID Chip is Ready; Are You?

by Robert Lederman

[log in to unmask]

Is part of the agenda behind a variety of recent public health
scares an in
jectable I.D. chip? Such chips are no longer a science fiction
fantasy. The
y exist and are already being marketed for human use.

Recent threats to public health from Anthrax, West Nile Virus,
Hepatitis B,
 Smallpox and AIDs share something in common. In their current
modified forms each originated with the U.S. Federal government
and it's bi
o-warfare programs and for each disease experimental vaccines
are being pro
moted for widespread use by the American public.

Below you'll find an excerpt from an engineering and technology
 on the new injectable I.D. chip. Following that are excerpts
from mainstre
am media articles about the Bush administration's plans for a
mandatory Fed
eral vaccination program. During a declared emergency if you
refuse the sho
ts you will be quarantined. Media clips that follow detail the
intimate rel
ationship between the Bush administration and vaccine manufacturers
and at
the end there's a great article from Vaccine Liberation titled,
"20 Reasons
 Not To Take the New Smallpox Vaccine".

Just connect the dots.

These diseases have all been the subject of extensive experimentation
by U.
S. military scientists for use as weapons. Each disease has apparently
 released upon the public by our own government rather than by
a foreign en
emy. Each has been exploited by the corporate media to generate
a sense of
panic. And for each there's a newly-developed vaccine which the
and the vaccine manufacturers connected to the Bush administration
would ve
ry much like us all to take.

One can imagine the difficulty of getting the entire population
of the U.S.
 to voluntarily submit to an injectable I.D. To start with, millions
of Chr
istians would likely view it as the "mark of the beast" described
in Revela
tions. Tens of millions of health food consumers would question
the possibl
e physical side-effects. Civil-libertarians would strenuously
object to the
 basic premise behind such a device.

One solution to this problem for the government - other than
simply forcing
 everyone to accept an implated chip at gunpoint - would be to
get us all t
o willingly submit to a vaccine which includes an injectable
chip without o
ur knowledge.

For background of the eugenics origins of these programs and
their links to
 the Bush family, the U.S. pharmaceutical industry and to 9/11

Injectable chip opens door to 'human bar code'

By Charles J. Murray 01/04/02

"Radio-frequency identification chips, which have found a home
in applicati
ons ranging from toll road passes to smart retail shelves, may
be close to
taking up residence in the human body.

A Florida-based company has introduced a passive RFID chip that
is compatib
le with human tissue, and the developer is proposing the chip
for use on im
plantable pacemakers, defibrillators and artificial joints. The
company, Ap
plied Digital Solutions (Palm Beach, Fla.), also said that the
chip could b
e injected through a syringe and used as a sort of "human bar
code" in secu
rity applications.

Called the VeriChip, the device could open up a broad new segment
for the $
900 million-a-year RFID business, especially if society embraces
the idea o
f using microchips for human identification. Applied Digital
executives ult
imately believe that the worldwide market for such implantable
chips could
reach $70 billion per year. "The human market for this technology
could be
huge," said Keith Bolton, senior vice president of technology
development a
t the company...The announcement of the chip's availability created
a media
 stir, however - not because of its potential use with pacemakers
but becau
se of its science-fiction-like potential application in human
n systems. Because the microchip and its antenna measure just
11.1 x 2.1 mm
, Applied Digital Solutions said the assembly can be injected
through a syr
inge and implanted in various locations within the body.

The tube-shaped VeriChip includes a memory that holds 128 characters
of inf
ormation, an electromagnetic coil for transmitting data and a
tuning capaci
tor, all encapsulated within a silicone-and-glass enclosure.
The passive RF
 unit, which operates at 125 kHz, is activated by moving a company-designed
 scanner within about a foot of the chip. Doing so excites the
coil and "wa
kes up" the chip, enabling it to transmit data.

The chips are said to be similar to those that are already implanted
in abo
ut a million dogs and cats nationwide to enable pet owners to
identify and
reclaim animals that have been temporarily lost. Applied Digital
 which has made the pet-tracking chips for several years, says
that the hum
an chips differ mainly in the biocompatible coating that's used
to keep the
 body from rejecting the implanted chip. The VeriChip is believed
to be the
 first such chip designed for human identification.

Inspired by Sept. 11

In September, Applied Digital Solutions implanted its first human
chip when
 a New Jersey surgeon, Richard Seelig, injected two of the chips
into himse
lf. He placed one chip in his left forearm and the other near
the artificia
l hip in his right leg.

"He was motivated after he saw firefighters at the World Trade
Center in Se
ptember writing their Social Security numbers on their forearms
with Magic
Markers," Bolton said. "He thought that there had to be a more
d way of doing an identification."

Applied Digital said Seelig, who serves as a medical consultant
to the comp
any, has now had the chips implanted in him for three months
with no signs
of rejection or infection...Applied Digital's executives said
the ability t
o inject the chips opens up a variety of RFID applications in
 situations, as well other types of human identification systems.
The chips
, they said, could be implanted in young children or in adults
with Alzheim
er's disease, to help officials identify people who can't identify

A consortium of major manufacturers has sought to push the technology
as a
replacement for bar codes in everyday products ranging from cereal
boxes to
 shaving cream cans, but the cost hasn't dropped low enough to
make that fe
asible. More recently, a group led by the European Central Bank
began work
on embedding RFID chips in the euro bank note, but the chip category
has ye
t to find its killer app...Some engineers suggested the technology
might ul
timately be scaled down, making the chip's acceptance more likely.
At Alien
 Technology Corp. (Morgan Hill, Calif.), engineers have already
discussed u
sing that company's ultrasmall RFID chips in human applications.
Alien, whi
ch uses a process known as fluidic self-assembly to create chips
350 x 350 microns, has demonstrated its 900-MHz technology on
everyday prod
ucts such as soap and shampoo bottles. The coded information
can be detecte
d and read across distances measuring almost 3 feet. "There are
companies m
aking RFID tags that are much smaller than a couple of millimeters,"
said A
ndy Holman, director of business development for Alien Technology.
 also suggested that human identification technology would be
more likely t
o be popularized when engineers are able to integrate more memory
and other
 features, such as global-positioning satellite units and induction-based
ower-recharging techniques. GPS might help find lost children
and adults, t
hey said, while larger memories would enable doctors to store
vital patient
 information. The concept "goes all the way back to the 1960s,"
said Jerry
Krasner, vice president of market intelligence for American Technology
rnational Inc.'s Embedded Forecasters Group. "What's new is the
ability to
store a lot of data. "As soon as you can do that, you'll see
more applicati
ons for this type of technology," he said."


CDC releases draft of public health law October 31, 2001

"ATLANTA, Georgia (AP) -- A model law drafted for states at the
request of
the federal government would give authorities broad powers to
close buildin
gs, take over hospitals and order quarantines during a biological
attack. T
he draft, commissioned by the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention an
d made public Tuesday, provides a template for states to respond
to the rel
ease of a deadly agent like smallpox or Ebola. Whether to adopt
such a law
is up to state legislatures. If any did, state officials could
take drastic
 steps -- including controlling the sale of food and gas and
condemning con
taminated buildings -- to prevent mass casualties from an outbreak.
"The cu
rrent laws are hopelessly antiquated," said Lawrence Gostin,
a professor of
 law and public health at Georgetown University and the draft's
principal a
uthor. "They predated all of the modern threats to the public
health. Many
of them are probably unconstitutional."

Even before September 11, the federal government wanted states
to update th
eir public health laws, some of which date to the 19th century.
The CDC ask
ed public health and law specialists at Johns Hopkins and Georgetown
sities, who were writing the draft, to put it on a fast track
because of th
e terrorist attacks and the anthrax outbreak. The 40-page draft
would allow
 state public health officials to purchase as many drugs as they
see fit an
d ration them without getting approval from other branches of

It also would give state authorities the right to mandate medical
testing o
f its citizens, to isolate people deemed a threat to the public
health and
to order private doctors to do the testing. In a bioterrorism
emergency, st
ates could seize hospitals, other property and "communication
devices" they
 believe are necessary to stop a biological attack from killing
huge number
s of people. The draft tries to head off the concerns of civil
liberties gr
oups over governmental control. It says citizens have the right
to the revi
ew of a court if they object to being forced into quarantine
or ordered to
take a vaccine. The law would be triggered by the governor in
the event of
bioterrorism or an epidemic that poses a substantial risk of
significant fa
talities. Because anthrax isn't contagious, the current response
has been c
hiefly about tracking the germ, treating the infected and distributing
biotics. A more contagious and deadly agent, such as smallpox
or Ebola viru
s, would require a much broader -- and faster -- response, possibly
ng mass vaccinations and quarantining entire communities. The
draft has bee
n delivered to the CDC for tinkering. State government associations,
ing the National Governors Association and the National Conference
of State
 Legislatures, also collaborated."

The following story ran on page D4 of the Boston Globe on 10/31/2001.

By Bloomberg News 10/31/2001

"WASHINGTON - States would be able to force patients to take
medication und
er model legislation outlining when and how governors can use
emergency pow
ers to address public health crises such as recent anthrax attacks.
The mod
el law, commissioned by the US Centers for Disease Control and
also would give people the right to appeal states' decisions
to quarantine
or isolate them. Individuals with contagious diseases, such as
smallpox, wo
uldn't be able to appeal orders for treatment or vaccination
under the law.
 State governments are concerned that laws are inadequate to
address new ki
nds of public health threats such as the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks
on buil
dings in New York and Washington or the use of germ or chemical
weapons. Fi
fteen Americans have been infected with anthrax, a deadly bacterial
, and thousands more are taking antibiotics as a precaution.
Lawrence Gosti
n, chief author of the model law and a professor at Georgetown
University L
aw Center, said the academic panel that drafted the proposal
tried to balan
ce the need to control disease with individuals' civil rights
- something h
e said isn't done under many

current state laws. ''We felt if we were too Draconian and didn't
respect p
eople's rights, that meant the terrorists would win,'' Gostin
said. Emergen
cy powers allow governors to suspend normal government temporarily,
 states swiftly address disease epidemics or natural disasters
such as eart
hquakes. Legal and public health experts at Georgetown University
and Johns
 Hopkins University examined all states' emergency-powers laws
in crafting
the model. Under the model law, states could quarantine or isolate
als who are infected with a contagious disease, though the patients
would h
ave the right to appeal that decision in court. The patient would
remain qu
arantined or isolated until the appeals process was exhausted,
Gostin said.
 Patients could be forced to take medicines or receive vaccines
for contagi
ous diseases that pose a public health threat, such as smallpox,
under the
model law. Patients wouldn't be allowed to appeal a state's decision,
h the state would likely quarantine anyone who refused to comply,
g an appeals process, Gostin said. States would avoid civil liberties
tions if they enact laws that spell out penalties such as the
loss of publi
c benefits, instead of incarceration, for patients who refuse
treatment, sa
id R. Alta Charo, a professor at the University of Wisconsin
Law School."

NY Times 11/4/2001 DRUG INDUSTRY A Muscular Lobby Tries to Shape
Nation's B
ioterror Plan

.."As that success shows, the pharmaceutical lobby, which represents
the nat
ion's biggest drug makers, from Eli Lilly to Pfizer to Merck,
is both large
 and politically adroit and, if anything, more sophisticated
than when it g
ained fame in the early 1990's for helping to defeat the Clinton
tion health plan. It has more lobbyists than there are members
of Congress
- 625 who are registered. It had a combined lobbying and campaign
ion budget in 1999 and 2000 of $197 million, larger than any
other industry
.. Now it is harnessing those resources to influence major policy
being made by the Bush administration that may well influence
public health
 issues and industry profitability for years to come - much to
the dismay o
f many consumer groups and others...Because of the anthrax scare,
and all t
he attention given to Cipro, the anti-anthrax drug of choice,
that access h
as been enormous. In recent weeks, the chief executives and other
top execu
tives of Merck, Bristol-Myers Squibb, Bayer, Pfizer, Eli Lilly
and Johnson
& Johnson, along with trade association officials, have been
meeting regula
rly with Bush cabinet members. On one occasion, with executives
from other
industries, pharmaceutical executives met with President Bush
in New York t
o discuss the administration's response to terrorism. Drug company
es have offered to send scores of industry scientists, now on
their payroll
s, to work in government agencies in what the industry calls
a gift to the
nation, but critics say it is both a conflict of interest and
a way for the
 industry to get a toehold in government. In return, at these
top-level mee
tings, industry executives and lobbyists are seeking exemption
from antitru
st regulations, reduction of the timetable for getting new drugs
to market
for treating the ills of biological warfare, and immunity from
lawsuits for
 any vaccines they develop to combat bioterrorism. The administration,
e in the meeting say, has offered other help, asking the pharmaceutical
cutives to identify the regulatory barriers they would like to
see eliminat
ed for this fight. Last Wednesday, for instance, a dozen industry
 and executives, among them Peter R. Dolan, chief executive of
s, and Raymond V. Gilmartin, chief executive of Merck, met for
an hour and
a half in the Roosevelt Room of the White House with Tom Ridge,
the directo
r of homeland security. According to one person at the meeting,
Mr. Ridge w
as so impressed with what the industry executives said that he
responded: "
I'm grateful for your offers of assistance. I accept." That ,
according to
the meeting's participant, reflected "a true partnership between
the federa
l government and America's pharmaceutical companies."

NY TIMES October 26, 2001 Production of Smallpox Vaccine to Begin
by Decemb

"Tommy G. Thompson, the health and human services secretary,
said yesterday
 that he expected production of smallpox vaccine to begin by
late November
or early December. So far, the government has selected one company,
 (news/quote), a small biotechnology company, to make 54 million
doses of s
mallpox vaccine. That contract was signed last year, after the
government p
ut out a bid as part of a program to stockpile drugs against
the threat of
bioterrorism, which at the time was considered only a theoretical

Mr. Thompson said yesterday that his staff was reviewing 10 proposals
other companies that have offered to make an additional 250 million
doses o
f vaccine. All told, the government plans to have more than 300
million dos
es available in 12 months, enough for every American."We believe
this will
position our country strongly," Mr. Thompson said yesterday.
"We want this
stockpile as soon as possible. Terrorists, if they have this
capacity, will
 not wait." Mr. Thompson would not disclose the names of the
companies offe
ring to make the vaccine. But Merck & Company (news/quote), Aventis
uote), GlaxoSmithKline (news/quote) and American Home Products
, the nation's four largest vaccine manufacturers, have said
they submitted
 proposals to do the work. Mr. Thompson has asked Congress for
$509 million
 to speed the production of the smallpox vaccine. But it is not
clear wheth
er that will be enough. In their written proposals, the companies
have give
n estimates of what it will cost to make the vaccine. Mr. Thompson's
said that the details in those proposals would not be released.
Before the
Sept. 11 attacks, few people had heard of Acambis, a company
with operation
s in Cambridge, Mass., and Cambridge, England. Like many small
y companies, Acambis is not yet selling any products. But in
its laboratory
, scientists are working on a dozen vaccines that would protect
against som
e of the world's worst infectious diseases, including yellow
fever, dengue
fever and the West Nile virus."

some info
from Vaccination Liberation that might change your mind


20 Reasons Not To Take the New Smallpox Vaccine by Amy Worthington

1. George W. Bush has said of smallpox vaccination: "One of my
concerns if
we were to have universal vaccination, some might lose their
life." ~The Ti
mes (in London), November 09, 2001

2. For each million people vaccinated with the smallpox vaccine,
as many as
 250 could die, according to the American Medical Association.
Multiply 250
 times 285 (millions of Americans) and the possible deaths from
universal s
mallpox vaccination could equal 71,250. ~ Journal of the American
Medical A
ssociation, June 9, 1999, Vol. 281, No. 22, p. 2132

3. "The American Medical Association said on Tuesday it was not
in favor of
 an immediate mass U.S. smallpox vaccination program, saying
the potential
threat of a bioterror attack did not warrant inoculating every
American aga
inst the disease." ~Reuters, December 12, 2001

4. "Right now the risk of getting the vaccine is higher than
the benefit. Y
ou could get a secondary infection, a full-blown systemic infection."
e Rau, Panhandle Health District nurse, quoted by The Spokesman-Review,
ember 20, 2001

5. CDC director Jeffrey Koplan has admitted that universal smallpox
tion could unleash a significant number of side-effects. He said
that becau
se many parts of our population do not have a "robust immune
system," a fai
r number of people could have serious reactions. ~Koplan speaking
on the PB
S special "Bioterror Propaganda" aired by WETA, November 14,

6. If the entire nation were to receive a smallpox vaccine, several
d people would likely develop encephalitis, an inflammation of
the brain. ~
Washington Post, Dec. 26, 2001

7. Roger J. Pomerantz, chief of the infectious disease department
at Thomas
 Jefferson University in Philadelphia, said that doctors have
no idea what
the smallpox vaccine might do to people at the extremes of life--less
2 and older than 65. He said that an even greater concern would
be its effe
ct on people with weakened immune systems from HIV infection,
or transplants. ~Washington Post, Dec. 26, 2001

8. "Researchers have been reluctant to recommend a new vaccination
which would use the smallpox vaccine for the local population
because the v
accine can cause disease and death in persons with inadequate
immune system
s." ~ Science, Vol. 277, July 18, 1997, pp. 312-13.

9. Routine smallpox vaccination in the United States ended in
1972. Officia
ls are hesitant to resume the immunizations because the vaccine
is the most
 reactive of all and has been linked to serious side effects,
including dea
th. ~ Reuters, November 29, 2001.

10. Eight printed pages of medical studies documenting the many
serious sid
e effects of smallpox vaccination can be obtained at:
/smallpox.html See "smallpox vaccine adverse reactions 66-76."
[Note: go to
 the home page above and put "smallpox vaccine adverse reaction"
in the sea
rch engine.] Repercussions include serious brain and heart diseases,
, abnormal chromosomal changes, diabetes, various cancers and
leukemias, pl
us demyelination of nerve tissue years after vaccination.

11. The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled that vaccination must not
be forced on
 persons whose physical condition would make such vaccination
"cruel and in
human." In other words, the state has no right to command that
an individua
l sacrifice his life in the name of public health. ~Jacobsen
V. Massachuset
tes, 197 U.S. 11 (1905).

12. By the 1920s, several British medical researchers documented
that small
pox was not only more common among the VACCINATED, but that the
from smallpox was actually higher among those who had been vaccinated.
 indicates that the vaccine was ineffective and predisposed vaccinated
ons to more lethal disease. ~Vaccination, Dr. Viera Scheibner,
Australia, 1
993, pp. 205-220.

13. Getting a vaccination does not guarantee immunity. ~CDC,
January 28, 19

14. By 1987, scientific evidence indicated that the World Health
on's 13-year global smallpox vaccination campaign may have awakened
 HIV infection in many vaccinees. ~Times (in London) May 11,

15. Vaccines made from animal substrate contain animal viruses
that are imp
ossible to filter out. By 1961, scientists discovered that animal
viruses i
n vaccines, including smallpox, could act as a carcinogen when
given to mic
e in combination with cancer-causing chemicals, even in amounts
too small t
o induce tumors alone. They concluded that vaccine viruses function
as a ca
talyst for tumor production. ~Science, December 15, 1961.

16. Some of the new smallpox vaccine doses will be created with
animal subs
trate. Because the vaccine will incorporate vaccinia, the cowpox
virus, man
y wonder about possible mad-cow contamination. Fifty-five million
doses of
the new vaccine will be created using a cell line dating back
to 1966 and c
ultured from the lung tissues of an aborted human fetus. ~World
Net Daily,
December 4, 2001.

17. The new smallpox vaccine will be genetically engineered.
Many scientist
s believe that genetically engineered vaccines may be responsible
for the g
lobal epidemic of auto-immune disease and neurological dysfunction.

According to Dr. Bonnie Dunbar of Baylor College of Medicine,
many thousand

isease. ~Testimony of Dr. Dunbar to Texas Dept. of Health, March
12, 1999.
Over 15,000 French citizens sued the French government to stop

showing that the hepatitis B and other vaccines are closely linked
to the d
evelopment of insulin dependent diabetes. ~Infectious Diseases
in Clinical
Practice, October 22, 1997

18. The British vaccine manufacturer Medeva has a horrendous
record of cont
amination and blunders. In 2000, the FDA found that Medeva was
making vacci
nes in conditions of filth, resulting in contaminated products.
Medeva had
been illegally using bovine medium to culture its polio vaccines,
then lied
 about it. Medeva also used the blood of a Creutzfeldt-Jakob
victim (mad co
w) to manufacture 83,000 doses of polio vaccine used for (against?)
Irish c
hildren. Nevertheless, the FDA allowed the USA to accept Medeva's
flu vacci
ne (Fluvirin) for the year 2000. ~London Observer series: October
20-26, 20

19. In 2001, the British socialized health care system was reported
to be i
n a state of collapse, with many hospitals and labs operating
in abysmal fi
lth. Five thousand people die each year from infections contracted
in Briti
sh hospitals; 10,000 become deathly ill from such infections.
 procedures are barely adequate and said to be risking the spread
of mad co
w disease. Government ministers are reportedly trying to hush
up the scanda
l. Jan 06, 2001; The Sunday Times of London,
November 12, 2

20. The U.S. government apparently intends to conduct NO double
blind studi
es on the safety and efficacy of the new smallpox vaccine. It
has ordered 2
86 million doses, one for every man, woman and child in America
at a cost o
f $428 million. At least half of this vaccine will be delivered
by Acambis
PLC of great Britain.
