From the May 2007 Idaho Observer:
The global RFID numbering and tracking agenda
The global RFID numbering and tracking agenda
While American adults and legislatures from at least 34 states are in open rebellion of the Real ID Act expected to go into effect a year from now, they are generally unaware that a campaign to open a universal, cradle-to-grave ID dossier on children is quietly moving forward.
By Don Harkins
In mid-April, 2007, a note was sent home to the parents of children attending elementary school in Grangeville, Idaho, seeking their consent to have "Ident-a-Kid" photograph and fingerprint students. The school took the liberty of taking pictures and prints of 400 to 500 children—whether their parents had consented or not.
The "service" was paid for by the PTA. Jane Lesko of Idaho Eagle Forum reported that Ident-a-Kid does not indicate a board of directors or the identities of any officers or employees on its website. The site encourages people to buy a franchise and then pitch the service to schools, communities and private organizations.
In other words, schools are deciding to have a complete stranger take pictures and prints of children and pad the record with personal information. Ident-A-Kid also advocates setting up school-wide security systems.
Then the stranger takes this "positive identification" from the school and puts it on his database for 60 days while he is making a driver’s license-like card to give to their parents later. No one knows anything about this stranger and he is not an officer of the law. There is no security of information to protect the child or be protected from identity theft. An image on the website shows a computer screen with a little girl’s picture on it. "This tells me that they plan to have this information on the schools database, too. This looks like the national ID for kids," Lesko observed.
According to its nondescript website, "...Ident-A-Kid Services of America, Inc., [founded in 1986] is the pioneer in Immediate Response Child Identification. Through its 240-plus locations, Ident-A-Kid annually provides over three million ID cards to parents at schools and other locations throughout the United States. The Ident-A-Kid card is a driver’s license-like card that contains a child’s photograph, fingerprint and description. Parents keep the card with them at all times and, in an emergency, can provide law enforcement with it for immediate response."
Atop its website is the claim that, according to the U.S. Department of Justice, "On average, 2,185 children are reported missing each day."
Cradle to grave
Activist Vickie Davis, alarmed at the implications of the Grangeville example reported by Lesko, pulled some data together showing that Ident-a-Kid is part of a global, cradle-to-grave ID system. "Some companies like Ident-a-Kid and groups like the National Center for Missing Children are taking the ID information—that includes biometric data, fingerprints or iris scans—and are putting them in a national database. My suspicions are that the data is making it’s way into the U.S. edition of the cradle-to-grave Total Information Awareness system that is being implemented in Dutch schools."
Davis posted a link to an MSNBC article from Sept., 2005, describing how "The Dutch government will begin tracking every citizen from cradle to grave in a single database, opening an electronic dossier for every child at birth with health and family data and, eventually, school and police records."
The system was to be in operation by Jan., 2007. "…[E]ach child will get a Citizen Service Number, making it easier to track children with problems even when their families move," the article said.
The global agenda
"Where is all this coming from?" Lesko asked and then stated, "It’s not from the U.S."
Davis found links to similar "cradle-to-grave" ID programs in Great Britain, Australia, China and Japan. The systems are identical in that the databases require a unique identifier, preferably biometric, for each category (medical, personal, occupational, education, criminal, financial) of information. But the key for a regional database (like the European Union or the North American Union) linking to other regional databases will be a numbering system that contains the code for county, state or province (called a "smart" number) plus an "up" number which is the unique number assigned to the individual at birth.
"That’s why everybody needs a new ID. What the traitors in Washington DC really want is to assign everybody a unique number for the combined NAU database," Davis observed.
CASPIAN generates good press opposing chips
Protesting community care center plan to chip Alzheimers
patients helped deliver broader "spychip" message to area
Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering (CASPIAN), led by Katherine Albrecht, co-author of "Spychips," sponsored a weekend prayer vigil in West Palm Beach, Florida the weekend of May 12, 2007, to protest the planned implantation of 200 Alzheimer’s patients with VeriChip devices. Around 30 CASPIAN supporters gathered in friendship and prayer outside of the Alzheimer’s Community Care Center where the proposed chipping is intended to be carried out. The group ranged in age from a baby a few months old to a gentleman over 80 and included a diverse crew of surfers, lawyers, professors, homemakers, school kids and college students. "Representing many races and walks of life, we were united in the defense of human dignity," Albrecht reported.
Above is one photo taken from a slide show of the event posted at www.spychips.com/slideshow-may12/index.html Albrecht reported that the event received major local television, newspaper, and radio coverage. "On Friday night I got a chance to drive by the VeriChip world headquarters (actually just a second-floor office in a rather nondescript office building) where organizers and I snapped a few photos. Then Saturday morning I headed over to Clear Channel’s WJNO 1290 AM, the #1 talk radio station in the Palm Beach area, where I did a one hour on-air interview," Albrecht said.
The Clear Channel interview was followed by interviews with Channel 12 News, the local CBS affiliate, and the Palm Beach Post, the area’s largest newspaper. "Not surprisingly, the Palm Beach community has responded with outrage to AlzCare’s microchipping plans."
CASPIAN vows that, "This is just the start of our activities to oppose the microchipping of human beings."
CASPIAN’s efforts will be posted to both the spychips.com website and the website at AntiChips.com. People who oppose the chipping agenda are encouraged to interact with the site and participate in the campaign to stop this invasive process.
