My friend, Sheila, first brought this to my attention on Facebook. Another friend had made a comment about RFID chips, and since I live in the real world, without foil on my windows or a bunker in my backyard, I had no idea about any of this. Whoo doggy, was I missing something. Using the ever efficient Google search, I found Alipac.us, and an article about the Obama administration implanting everyone who did not have health insurance with RFID chips. Here’s a snippet from that article. Blog. Nonsensical and poorly written crazy ass diatribe. (Note: this rumor first reared its ugly head in 2010, which is the date of the Alipac.us piece.)
On Sunday March 21, 2010 the Senate Healthcare bill HR3200 was passed and signed into law the following Tuesday. Like I said before, there are a legion of horrible and just plain evil aspects to this bill and I’m sure you’ve heard a lot them by now. I don’t want to discount them but what cannot be missed here is this new law now opens a prophetic door on a magnitude not seen since the reformation of Israel.
This new law requires an RFID chip implanted in all of us. This chip will not only contain your personal information with tracking capability but it will also be linked to your bank account. And get this, Page 1004 of the new law (dictating the timing of this chip), reads, and I quote: “Not later than 36 months after the date of the enactment”. It is now the law of the land that by March 23rd 2013 we will all be required to have an RFID chip underneath our skin and this chip will be link to our bank accounts as well as have our personal records and tracking capability built into it.
The article/psychotic rant goes on to quote from (get ready) Ron Paul’s website:
“Buried deep within the over 1,000 pages of the massive US Health Care Bill (PDF) in a “non-discussed” section titled: Subtitle C-11 Sec. 2521— National Medical Device Registry, and which states its purpose as…….. He quotes that part of the law and then goes on to say: “In “real world speak”, according to this report, this new law, when fully implemented, provides the framework for making the United States the first Nation in the World to require each and every one of its citizens to have implanted in them a radio-frequency identification microchip for the purpose of controlling who is, or isn’t, allowed medical care in their country”.
The Daily Paul also wrote an article about RFID chips, stating that the claim is, in fact, false. However, rabid Paulbots railed mightily against this sanity, and one went so far as to post a video about CYANIDE-laden RFID chips. Godlikeproductions.com has a 9 minute video, also promoting this myth, and Before It’s News.com posts an article from Polidics.com, all about RFID chips being implanted in American citizens, against their will, by 2013.
I read these articles, I watched these videos. I think I deserve a prize for that.
As my bullshit meter rang loudly in my head, I remembered that Sheila had posted a link to Snopes. I love Snopes. They help get me through some of the weirdest stuff, RFID chips included. Snopes took on an email that people are receiving, detailing the government’s plans for implanting these chips in American citizens. Snopes includes two such emails at the beginning of their piece, and labels them FALSE. Snopes then goes on to prove it:
“First off, the page numbers and language referenced in the example above were taken from HR 3200, an early House version of health care reform legislation that was never passed by Congress.Passages cited from HR 3200 are therefore irrelevant, as that bill was never signed into law.
Second, the now-irrelevant language of the unpassed HR 3200 (and similar language in the subsequently passed reconciliation bill, HR 4872) did not mandate that anyone be implanted with any type of microchip or device, for any reason. The passages quoted above reference a section which simply calls for the creation of a registry that would allow the Department of Health and Human Services to collect data about medical devices ‘used in or on a patient’ (including devices which patients consent to have implanted in them during surgery, such as pacemakers) for purposes that include tracking the effectiveness of such devices and facilitating the distribution of manufacturer recall notices.”
I know, the reality isn’t nearly as scary or appealing to the fringe, but there it is. No RFID chips, no cyanide, no bar codes on your scalp. The end of days is not here, we are not being tracked via implants and these people really need to get outside and maybe play a little Frisbee. Have an iced decaf coffee. Calm down.
