e-Meters or e-Hackers?

In the 2001 remake of Ocean’s 11, a troupe of con artists use an over-sized green tube, “the pinch,” to black out all of Las Vegas using an electromagnetic pulse (EMP). Unfortunate as it may be for the film industry, the only such EMP catalyst that exists is a nuclear explosion.

Nevertheless, U.S. citizens worry that criminals no longer have to resort toninini nuclear weapons or other science-fiction worthy tactics to overtake the grid. In every home there will be a soft underbelly, allowing hackers to steal private data, remotely disconnect appliances, and even black out the neighborhood. The chink in the armor: the smart meter, head honcho of The Internet of Things.

A smart meter is an online utility meter that measures the consumption of water, natural gas and electricity in a home. Through wireless transmission via radio frequency (RF) wave signals, the usage data is provided to the utility company, which supposedly uses the data to “optimize” electricity rates and schedule power generation.

America captured: The intended chipping and tagging of American citizens for continual surveillance

One way or another, the corporate federal government is going to chip and tag us.  The first real effort to begin the cataloguing of the people was in 1992 when every state began collecting the dna of every newborn.  Until recently, most people had no idea this was even going on.  Here in Minnesota, not only were most parents not aware of this collection, but none were told it was an opt-in system, not an opt-out.  In other words, they had to agree to have this sample taken, but most were never informed that any samples of this kind were taken at all.  The Minnesota Health department then claimed after 45 days, it owned the dna samples and could sell them for experimentation, or other purposes.  

All dna gathered for any purpose whatsoever is data-based and uploaded not only into CODIS (the criminal database) but also to Interpol (the international data base).  Even the dna of corpses is collected and logged into the system.  The Human Genome Project was launched specifically with the intent to eventually identify each and every one of us through our DNA, and link us immediately to any and all family members; even to extended family members we might not even be aware existed.  More

Candian livestock producers successfully lured into NAIS and RFID

4 Comments

It would appear that Canadian Cattle producers have been successfully led into the trap of RFID tagging for their livestock.  Using the same phony PR used by the USDA here in the states, a corporation which is also quite active in Canadian agriculture, NAIS is alive and well and headed our way.  And you thought this dog was run out!

Bar-coded cattle ID tags de-listed July 1

By Staff

Any bar-coded dangle tags still hanging from Canadian cattle’s ears will officially become plastic jewelry effective July 1.

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency, which was previously expected to de-list bar code tags as of Jan. 1, 2010, said Friday that the bar code tags will be de-listed July 1 in favour of radio frequency identification (RFID) tags.

Starting July 1, all cattle must be tagged with approved RFID tags before they move from their current locations or leave their farms of origin.

“Although this change may be an additional one- time process for some producers, the ability to easily capture information from the RFID tags will help all producers in the long run,” said Darcy Eddleston, a Paradise Valley, Alta. producer and chairman of the Canadian Cattle Identification Agency (CCIA), in a joint CFIA/CCIA release.

“We have worked with government to move forward on traceability and we believe that de- listing the bar-coded tag will advance traceability initiatives.” More

Well, here it is!  Invisible RFID tattooing for your cattle…..oh…and its safe for humans too! 

Live link: Information Week

“Chief scientist Ramos Mays said the tests provide a true proof-of-principle and mitigate most of the technological risks in terms of the product’s performance. “This proves the ability to create a synthetic biometric or fake fingerprint with biocompatible, chipless RFID ink and read it through hair,” he said.

Co-founder Mark Pydynowski said during an interview Wednesday that the ink doesn’t contain any metals and can be either invisible or colored. He declined to say what is in the ink, but said he’s certain that it is 100% biocompatible and chemically inert. He also said it is safe for people and animals.”

 “National Medical Device Registry” section.Page  1006 “to be enacted within 36 months upon passage”
Required RFID implanted chip Sec. 2521, Pg. 1000 – The  government will establish a National Medical Device Registry. What does a  National Medical Device Registry mean?
 
National Medical Device Registry from H.R. 3200 [Healthcare Bill], pages 1001-1008: (g)(1) The Secretary shall establish a national medical device registry  (in this subsection referred to as the ‘registry’) to facilitate analysis of  postmarket safety and outcomes data on each device that- ”(A) is or has been used in or on a patient; ”(B)and is- ”(i) a class III device; or  ”(ii) a class II device that is implantable, life-supporting, or  life-sustaining.”
 
Then on page 1004 it describes what the term “data” means in paragraph 1,section B:”(B) In this paragraph, the term ‘data’ refers to  information respecting a device described in paragraph (1), including claims  data, patient survey data, standardized analytic files that allow for the  pooling and analysis of data from disparate data environments, electronic  health records, and any other data deemed appropriate by the  Secretary
“What exactly is a class II device that is implantable?
Approved by the FDA,  a class II implantable device is an “implantable radio frequency transponder  system for patient identification and health information.” More

Big brother could be keeping a closer eye on you

OKLAHOMA CITY — An Oklahoma lawmaker is calling a piece of legislation under consideration in the U.S. Congress a “big brother, big government bill.” The Pass I.D. Act calls for standardizing driver’s licenses across the country, but State Representative Paul Wesselhoft says the bill is an invasion of privacy.

“I think it’s big brother at its worst. I know the motive behind it is to curb illegal immigration and other security issues but I think it’s a violation of our 4th Amendment,” says Rep. Wesselhoft (R-Moore).

RFID Bling For Bovines – Just In Time For The New Year

Just when you thought you’d heard it all, something comes along that makes you say “Hm. I just wonder”.

While surfing around the UHF-RFID livestock world, I came across a new and snazzy tag. Trust me folks – you want to pass on this one.

While a cutie-wootie-slick-forward-looking tag can be an extra bonus in selling (riigghhtt) – this one has the stink of the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) plastered all over it. Why would one think that? Here we go (links are provided at conclusion for ease of  review):

USDA approves eTattoo from Eriginate as First Official UHF Identification Device (1) That headline should cause one to wonder and the opening comment begs for investigation:

“Eriginate Corporation announced today the approval of its eTattoo tag by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The approval marks the first ultra-high radio frequency identification tag (UHF RFID) and the first non-low frequency tag (LF) to be approved for use with the “840” Animal Identification Number (AIN)”

Just whom is on the board of this  “Eriginate”? (2)

Why surprise surprise the Director is one Mr. Doran Junek. As his bio (3) clearly states, he has all the bells and whistles required to position this firm for the first “approved” eTattoo:

Lobbying responsibilities – check
Member of the Bovine Species Working Group for NAIS – check
Affiliation (past or present?) with Cargill – Check
“Key industry Contacts” – Check

…but that’s just my opinion.

Of course as “Advisors” (4) go, the most interesting could be Gerardo Flores of famed NASA affiliation. Nah. While his specialty could ensure that once we go “solar system wide” the critters could be properly traced, that’s a few years in the future, so lets see….here’s an interesting character. More
