BIG BROTHER'S IMPLANTABLE/INJECTABLE MICRO/BIO-CHIPS --- [1 of 3]
From an Oct. 11, 1993 "The Washington Times" article entitled, "High-tech
national tattoo", by Martin Anderson: "...there is an identification
system made by the Hughes Aircraft Company that you can't lose. It's the
syringe implantable transponder.
According to promotional literature it is an "ingenious, safe,
inexpensive, foolproof and permanent method of ... identification using
A tiny microchip, the size of a grain of rice, is simply placed under the
skin. It is so designed as to be injected simultaneously with a
vaccination or alone."
How does it work? Well, the "chip contains a 10 character alphanumeric
identification code that is never duplicated. When a scanner is passed
over the chip, the scanner emits a 'beep' and your ... number flashes in
the scanner's digital display."
[....] True, an implanted transponder can't yet hold anywhere near as
much material as a smart card. But if the desire is there, larger size
implants and tiny microchips could soon increase its storage capacity.
Of course, most Americans will find a surgically implanted government
microchip repugnant. At least for the foreseeable future, the use of this
ingenious device will be confined to its current use: the tracking of
dogs, cats, horses and cattle.
But there is no difference in principle between forced to carry a
microchip in a plastic card in your wallet or in a little pellet in your
arm. The principle that Big Brother has the right to track you is
inherent in both. The only difference is a layer of skin.
From the Sat., Oct. 15, 1994 Dr. Fox "ANIMAL DOCTOR" column in the "St.
Louis [Missouri] Post-Dispatch":
Dear Dr. Fox: Our local Humane Society has offered, for $25, a lifetime
computer chip to be injected with a needle between the shoulder blades of
a cat or dog. Apparently, all new animals adopted get a chip. [....]
[Dr. Fox:] ...the microchip identification system you describe is an
excellent advance in helping with pet loss, owner identification and pet
theft. [....] Microchip ID technology is safe...and adverse reactions
following subcutaneous implantation are extremely rare...

BIG BROTHER'S IMPLANTABLE/INJECTABLE MICRO/BIO-CHIPS --- [2 of 3]
From the "Electronic Leash:
The Implantable Bio-Chip Is Already Here. Is Big Brother Just Around The
article by Lisa Crosby in the Vol. 11, No. 14, June 15-June 21 issue of
the "Tucson [AZ] Weekly":
[....] The size of an uncooked grain of rice, the silicon computer
chip...When inserted underneath the skin, this chip can link an
individual to a computer database, or it can track a person's location
[....] Sound impossible? Hardly. Microchip implants are in use as you
read this. [....] Today, injecting a microchip into animals is routine.
[....] [....] Microchip pet identification -- technically known as radio
frequency identification (RFID) -- is available to pet owners nationwide.
[....] [....] The concept seems simple. A microchip encased in
biomedical-grade glass and imprinted with a unique, unalterable
alpha-numeric code. Over 34 billion individual code numbers are
available. [....] Once implanted, the chip is virtually impossible to
remove. ...even surgical removal using advanced radiograph techniques is
extremely difficult. This is because fibrous tissue adheres to grooves in
the glass surrounding the chip to prevent migration of the chip...
Since the chip operates with low-frequency radio waves and does not
contain a battery, it remains passive with no parts to wear out. [....]
...the tracking of microchips does occur. Hughes Missiles Systems Company
uses microchips to track aircraft and vehicles. [....] [....] But what
about tracking people?
While the Global Positioning System can track aircraft, there is a system
of satellites in orbit right now that can track microchips injected into
Dr. Carl Sanders, an engineer for 32 years and the designer of the
Intelligence Manned Interface (IMI) biochip for use in humans, told the
"Monetary Economic Review" that "There are new satellites going up (such
as the) 66 satellites that Motorola is putting up in conjunction with the
Russians. These are low-orbiting satellites." He explains that certain
microchips can be picked up by satellite. "We used this with military
personnel in the Iraq war where they were actually tracked using this
particular type of device."
The concept of tracking children with microchips is already generating
interest. The Associated Press reports that Dr, Daniel Man, a plastic
surgeon in Miami, Florida could locate lost children or find Alzheimer's
victims... The device would emit a signal that could be monitored through
a cellular system, and possibly by satellite. [....]
[....] But is the microchip actually ready to be injected in large
numbers of people?
...the technology behind today's microchip is "fairly uncomplicated" and
with a little refinement could be used in a variety of human
Sematech in Austin, Tex., developed a computer chip in 1993 that is only
0.35 microns wide -- roughly 1/200th the size of a human hair. [....]
Dr. Carl Sanders is especially concerned about Big Brother's exploitation
of the microchip. Sanders is an electronics engineer, inventor, author
and consultant with extensive background in designing surveillance
equipment for the CIA, FBI and the Customs Department in Atlanta.
Although he worked on designing the microchip years ago, he is now
concerned that it will be misused. On a tape he produced to explain his
views on the microchip, Sanders says: "Thirty-two years of my life was
spent in design engineering with a PhD in engineering, and
electronic-designing microchips in the bio-med field....
Working on the microchip, we had no idea about it ever being an
identification chip. ..."
[....] Sanders feels this chip may eventually used for life-long
identification, possibly against people's will. The government may have
the legal right authority to do this through the Immigration Control Act
of 1986, which gives the president the authority to implement whatever
type of identification is necessary to control the population. Sanders
fears that a SmartCard, invisible tattoo, or electronic microchip under
the skin may be used to enforce immigration laws. Currently there are
several pending measures before Congress calling for a social security
card for immigrant identification with a photo, fingerprint digitization,
or bar code. [....]
... The injectable microchip has been equated with the "Mark of the
Beast" -- a reference to a Biblical prophecy predicting that only those
with a mark on the right hand or forehead in the End times will be able
to buy or sell. (The supercomputer in Brussels handling worldwide bank
clearings for the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial
Telecommunications is nicknamed "The Beast.")

BIG BROTHER'S IMPLANTABLE/INJECTABLE MICRO/BIO-CHIPS --- [3 of 3]
(Related "bio-chip" information, as follows, is also contained in the
1994 book [ISBN 0-679-43176-4], Saved By the Light: The True Story of a
Man Who Died Twice and the Profound Revelations He Received, an
autobiography written by Dannion Brinkley.)
From the book's inside flyleaf:
On September 17, 1975, Dannion Brinkley was talking on the telephone
during a thunderstorm. A bolt of lightning hit the phone line, sending
thousands of volts of electricity into his head and down his body,
throwing him several feet into the air. His heart stopped, and he died.
When Brinkley revived in the morgue after twenty-eight minutes, he had an
incredible story to tell. Saved By the Light, is the profoundly moving
personal account of his near-death experiences -- the second NDE
occurring fourteen years later -- and the resulting spiritual
transformation that has completely altered his life.
After the lightning strike, Brinkley watched from above as loved ones and
medics tried to to start his heart. When doctors pronounced him dead he
was already traveling through a dark tunnel toward a spirit being, who
led him into a crystal city awash in light and tranquillity. Brought
before thirteen angelic instructors in what he describes as "a cathedral
of knowledge," Brinkley was told of events that would shake the world
before the year 2000 -- including the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, the
Persian Gulf War, and America's current economic crisis.
Of the 117 revelations that he recalls, 95 have already come to pass.
From pages 42 and 43 of the book (in regards to one of the "future"
revelations that he "saw" -- or, was "shown" -- back in 1975; years
before we had VCRs, personal computers, microwave ovens, grocery checkout
bar-code scanners, etc.):
...Its visions addressed an important event in the distant future, the
decade of the nineties (remember, this was 1975), when many great changes
would take place.
...I watched as a biological engineer from the Middle East found a way to
alter DNA and create a biological virus that would be used in the
manufacture of computer chips. This discovery allowed for huge strides in
science and technology. Japan, China, and other countries of the Pacific
Rim experienced boom times as a result of this discovery and became
powers of incredible magnitude. Computer chips produced from this process
found their way into virtually every form of technology, from cars and
airplanes and vacuum cleaners and blenders. Before the turn of the
century, this man was among the richest in the world, so rich that he had
a stranglehold on the world economy. Still the world welcomed him, since
the computer chips he designed somehow put the world on an even keel.
Gradually he succumbed to his own power. He began to think of himself as
a diety and insisted on greater control of the world. With that extra
control, he began to rule the world. His method of rule was unique.
Everyone in the world was mandated by law to have one of his computer
chips inserted underneath his or her skin. The chip contained all of the
individual's personal information. If a government agency wanted to know
something, all it had to do was scan your chip with a special device. By
doing so, it could discover everything about you, from where you worked
and lived to your medical records and even what kind of illness you might
get in the future.
There was an even more sinister side to this chip. A person's lifetime
could be limited by programming the chip to dissolve and kill him with
the viral substance it was made from. Lifetimes were controlled like this
to avoid the cost that growing old places on the government. It was also
used as a means of eliminating people with chronic illnesses that put a
drain on the medical system. People who refused to have the chips
implanted in their bodies roamed as outcasts. They could not be employed
and were denied government services.
