Conspiracy theorists have long warned of the coming Remote Frequency Identification Chip, or RFID Chip, which will effectively contain and broadcast to authorities your criminal record, medical history, biometric information, proof of U.S. citizenship, and other personal data. Lo and behold, these theories of an Orwellian future are now unfolding before us. While the endgame is to implant the RFID Chips directly into the human body, just under the skin, the Department of Homeland Security has chosen the “totalitarian tiptoe” by first introducing them in passports and now we are seeing the beginning of mandatory REAL ID driver’s licenses containing the chip.
The Mark of the Beast
Referred to by many as “the mark of the beast,” a reference to a Biblical prophecy telling of a day when man would require this devilish mark to operate in society, RFID Chips have always had a certain sinister connotation. But are they really a nefarious plot to track human activity or are they going to keep us safe, as our government assures us?
Officially announced to the American public by George W. Bush on 6/6/06, RFID Chips were supposedly a response to the heightened fear state America found itself in after 9/11. The DHS began enforcing the REAL ID Act on January 20, 2014, while assuring us that no personal information can be obtained by hackers or misused by authorities. However, when we look to history, we see a different story.
The J-Stamp & 90 Days of Death
In July 1938, just months before Kristallnacht, “J-Stamps” on national ID cards were phased in for Jewish citizens and were used to identify and deport Jews to concentration camps, in addition to the use of Star of David badges. Only 20 years ago in Rwanda, an ID card containing the word “Tutsi” was used to designate a death sentence during the ethnic genocide of one million people in less than 100 days.
REAL ID & Enhanced Drivers Licenses
According to the Department of Homeland Security, “Enhanced Drivers Licenses (EDLs) include a vicinity RFID Chip that will signal a secure system to pull up your biographic and biometric data for the CBP officer as you approach the border inspection booth, and a Machine Readable Zone (MRZ) or barcode that the CBP officer can read electronically if RFID isn’t available.” Many other countries have similar programs that monitor, permit, and disallow transportation, financial transactions, the right to vote, legal activity, et cetera.
The Global Village
In the same way that European currencies were merged into the Euro; in the same way that America, Canada, and Mexico have formed the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA); in the same way that countries are collectivizing like the African Union, European Union, and the imminent Central Asian Union; in the same way that the UN tries to pass global laws like Carbon Taxation; the REAL ID Act is a precursor to a globalized tracking system which monitors all human behavior worldwide. This year, the RFID world market has passed $20 billion and continues to grow steadily.
According to the most recent data from the Department of Homeland Security, 40 states have embraced and implemented the REAL ID and are working on or have have already issued Enhanced Drivers Licenses containing RFID Chips.

The Only Good Use for a Microwave Oven
The NSA whistleblower scandal showed that all conversations via phone, computer, and electronics, all videos and photos, and all digitally stored data are meticulously databased and combed through. Additionally, your computer can be accessed remotely even if it is not turned on or connected to the internet, and you can be spied on through your computer’s webcam and handheld device’s camera. These are just a few of the revelations of our government breaching our rights. If that did not make you feel weary of your government, perhaps the projections for RFID Chips will. It is rumored that microwaving your license for 30-60 seconds will fry the chip and render it inactive.
