An RFID chip can even help you remember to take your medications. Not convinced that a medical RFID chip is for your own good? Ok, then how about this…
How convenient! Even lamestream media thinks it’s a great idea.
The push toward implanting RFID chips in humans is gaining momentum. The company at the forefront of the tehcnology – VeriChip – has seen a rapid gain in its stock value.
We are no longer talking about some far-off sci-fi future. It is here – right now.
VeriChip is currently in rapid development of a “triage detection system” for H1N1.
VeriChip plans to fund its existing partnership with RECEPTORS to continue the development of a triage detection system for detection of the H1N1 virus. As previously announced in April 2009, the partners executed a Memorandum of Understanding relating to the expansion of their development partnership and published a white paper entitled, “An Integrated Sensor System for the Detection of Bio-Threats from Pandemics to Emerging Diseases to Bioterrorism,” which is available at www.verichipcorp.com.
NBC recently aired a segment promoting the use of medical RFID implants. This segment featured an entire family happily getting chipped:
If the soft sell approach isn’t effective enough, no need to worry. The groundwork has already been laid for the hard sell – mandatory chipping – if the government wants to take that road.
Obama’s economic stimulus bill mandated that all medical records be converted to electronic form.
$3 billion to computerize health records, a measure intended to cut costs and reduce medical errors. Language in the stimulus bill calls for “the utilization of an electronic health record (EHR) for each person in the United States by 2014.”
The House healthcare bill takes up the next step:
Sec. 2521, Pg. 1000 – The government will establish a National Medical Device Registry.

The Verichip RFID is “the first subcutaneous RFID chip to receive FDA approval as a Class 2 medical device.”
VeriChip recently partnered with Raytheon to manufacture its products.
VeriChip Corporation (“VeriChip” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:CHIP) today announced that it has selected Raytheon Microelectronics España (operating as “ELCAN Optical Technologies”) for the production of the Company’s radio frequency identification (RFID) implantable microchips, including its existing VeriChip microchip for patient identification, its new 8 millimeter microchip for use in
Medical Components, Inc.’s (Medcomp) vascular access medical devices, and its glucose-sensing RFID microchip currently under development with RECEPTORS, LLC.
In December 2008, VeriChip purchased all intellectual property related to its implantable RFID business line from Digital Angel Corporation and canceled its manufacturing relationship. Now, the Company is properly aligned and prepared to re-establish its manufacturing capabilities and has chosen to do so with ELCAN Optical Technologies.
Raytheon is a major US defense contractor.
Raytheon means “light from the gods.” The company is the maker of “Bunker Buster” bombs, Tomahawk and Patriot missiles, and manufactured the missile that killed 62 civilians in a Baghdad market in 2003. The company is a major American defense contractor and industrial corporation with core manufacturing concentrations in defense systems and defense and commercial electronics.
It does not require a lot of imagination or even a belief in religion to see the “mark of the beast” implications here. By 2014 Will your doctor or any emergency room be legally allowed to treat you if you refuse to be chipped? Will you even have the option to refuse?
We already have national registries of certain criminal classes. Chipping them would make it so much easier to keep track of their whereabouts, right? And wouldn’t we all be so much safer if police and FBI could track people arrested on suspicion of domestic terrorism? Not to mention keeping things like the national no-fly list up to date.
Anyone who thinks getting a chip is no big deal – who thinks it couldn’t be remotely reprogrammed for “national security” reasons – needs to be reminded of how Amazon.com remotely deleted copies of Orwell’s 1984 and Animal Farm from every Kindle, everywhere, in a matter of seconds, without warning.
The technology exists and the potential for abuse is mind boggling.
For me, this is the line that will not be crossed. I will not be chipped. I will not be violated in such a personal, physical way. If it means leaving everything behind to go off-grid, so be it.
