House Passes Bill to Microchip Citizens

Is it the “Mark of the Beast,” or a massive step forward in governmental control?


House Overwhelming Passes Bill to Microchip Citizens with Mental Disabilities

Call it the “Mark of the Beast,” or a massive step forward in governmental control over people’s lives, the planting of micro-chip tracking devices in humans is a very controversial issue.  The fear is that, like most government programs, what starts off as small and relatively unobtrusive eventually grows into a monstrosity.  The income tax would be a perfect example.

Thus far, we have a bill that overwhelming passed in the House of Representatives to implant micro-chips into people who have mental disorders that might cause them to get lost or disappear thereby endangering themselves.  The hope would be that the chip would enable officials to locate such persons before they might suffer injury.

While it is difficult to argue against measures that might help those with disabilities, the question is whether the definition of those to be chipped might be expanded to include vastly larger segments of the population — in the interest of their own safety, of course.

H. R. 4919 would also require the attorney general to consult with the secretary of health and human services and other health organizations to come up with best practices for the tracking devices.  Cited as the “Kevin and Avonte’s Law of 2016”, this bill is ambiguous and gets into some serious gray areas.

As mentioned, this bill passed in the House with overwhelming bi-partisan support.

It has yet to be passed in the Senate.

Rep. Gohmert of Texas spoke against the bill on the floor of the House.

“While this initiative may have noble intentions, ‘small and temporary’ programs in the name of safety and security often evolve into permanent and enlarged bureaucracies that infringe on the American people’s freedoms. That is exactly what we have here. A safety problem exists for people with Alzheimer’s, autism and other mental health issues, so the fix, we are told, is to have the Department of Justice, start a tracking program so we can use some device or method to track these individuals 24/7.”

This is a real danger, not just in the expansion of governmental surveillance power that this portends, but also the likelihood that the initiative will take the typical path of starting small and growing into something that presents a real danger to our liberties.

  1. This is absurd. There are already bracelets on the market with this function, and cell phones with tracking features. We do not need this law. Any implanted chip could easily be removed with a razor blade.

  2. My question is who determines ‘what is insane?’. There are those in government who think that a person who puts Jesus first is fundamentally not sane. Those who ‘cling to their Bibles and guns’ are “dangerous” and if they are also a returning veteran (of any era) they are ‘the most dangerous threat to America’. So, who decides? That’s right – some DC government supremicist decides.

    In short, this mark ( and all it’s ill effects ) will likely be dispensed with all the care and accuracy found in the Maryland Department of Motor Vehicles; that is – BADLY.

  3. How crazy do I need to be in order to be forced to get chipped? Who decides? If I take prozac, do I need to be chipped? If I have a therapist, do I need to be chipped? Once this line is crossed, all the government needs to do is slide the ‘crazy scale’ in my direction. I don’t like it at all. Let families decide this.

  4. You see? The government thinks of itself as being responsible for people. If we had preachers to remind fathers, mothers, sons, and daughters to be responsible for their families, then we would not hove politicians and government employees seeking to do the job.

    The politicians and all government employees are horrible (with way too few exceptions). They are not good neighbors with a clue about how to maintain a civilized society with happy wholesome families. They can’t even force themselves to be honest neighbors who abide by their Oath of Office. They dishonestly ignore their Oath…

    So, here are the words of a neighbor who sits in authority over our families. “This is not a moral court. It is a court of law.” OH! So that means it is an immoral court, right?
    “No. Shacking up and tending bar are not sufficient grounds to remove your children from their mother. If I did that, I would have to remove children from all the mothers who are shacking up and tending bar.” OH! So you are going to make it legal for at-fault adulterous mothers to throw away not-at-fault fathers and keep his children and income. And, if I take my children from her home as she took them from mine, you will put me in jail for parental kidnapping, right? Your immoral court is punishing the innocent and rewarding the guilty. –calling good evil and evil good.

    Stupid people in government positions are killing this nation. Just look at the government freebie programs. Ignorance and irresponsibility are rewarded with welfare, free rent, free atrocious government schools, and free healthcare(abortions for the promiscuous). Talk about promoting fatherless families… Good grief!

    Show this to your preacher and see if he can wrap a sermon around what I have written here.

  5. Disgusting! how dare this be allowed. This will infringe in every part of all human life. Once they have the go ahead. Big gov’t will make this happen.

    • I agree with your assessment. This type of Orwellian overreach is disgusting and must be resisted if sanity and human dignity is to survive in our world. And as George Orwell warned in his famously prophetic book 1984, “Who will watch the watcher’s?”
