You might not have heard of it since the mainstream media has you more concerned with what Donald Trump is tweeting at 2 in the morning and the fact that Russia is the cause for everything that is wrong with this country but this bill is aimed to protect people with disabilities from getting lost (at least that is what they are disguising it as).
The bill is said to direct the “Department of Justice’s (DOJ’s) Bureau of Justice Assistance to award grants to state and local law enforcement or public safety agencies and nonprofit organizations to prevent wandering and locate missing individuals with dementia or developmental disabilities.”
Now how will state and local law enforcement, public safety agencies and nonprofit organizations be able to prevent and locate these missing individuals? Easy. The grants that will be awarded to these agencies and organizations and will “assist such agencies in designing, establishing, and operating locative tracking technology programs for individuals with forms of dementia, such as Alzheimer’s Disease, or children with developmental disabilities, such as autism, who have wandered from safe environments.”
Sounds like its a good thing correct? Being able to prevent people from getting lost and finding them if they do get lost…Wrong
The first problem with the bill is that it states that these “agencies” will be assisted in “establishing and operating locative tracking technology programs.” Secondly these tracking programs will be used on individuals with forms of dementia and children with developmental disabilities.
Now saying that you will be tracking people with “forms of dementia” and “children with developmental disabilities” is very broad. Which forms of dementia? Which developmental disabilities? Are the agencies that will be in control of these tracking programs going to pick and choose which type of dementia and developmental disability they will be tracking? Or will they be tracking every single person with any form of dementia and every single child with any form of a developmental disability.
There are over 10 types of dementia, according to Alzheimer’s association. The National Institute on Aging suggests that over 5 million Americans may have Alzheimer’s but Alzheimer’s only accounts for about 60 to 80 percent of all dementia cases. So there are well over 5 million Americans who suffer from dementia.
The tracking programs will also be used on children with developmental disabilities although it’s not too specific on which disabilities. It could include children who suffer from ADHD, autism spectrum disorder, or cerebreal palsy, as well as children who suffer from hearing loss, children with intellectual and learning disabilities, or children who suffer from vision impairment. According to the CDC, “one in six, or about 15%, of children aged 3 through 17 years have a one or more developmental disabilities.”
“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,” Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) said in a floor speech opposing the bill.
SEC. 302. of H.R.4919 begins to state that,
(1)….”the Secretary of Health and Human Services and leading research, advocacy, self-advocacy, and service organizations, shall establish standards and best practices relating to the use of non-invasive and non-permanent tracking technology, where a guardian or parent, in consultation with the individual’s health care provider, has determined that a non-invasive and non-permanent tracking device is the least restrictive alternative,”
In other words, the non-invasive and non-permanent tracking technology will be somewhat of a last resort, an option that can be chosen by the parents or guardians along with the health care provider as the “least restrictive alternative.” Which means that the other alternative, the first choice, would be an invasive and permanent tracking technology.
“It is not unreasonable for a doctor or prosecutor to suggest that a chip just under the skin is non-invasive, because there is no entrance into the brain or body cavity. Japan is just a hair ahead of us, but they have found that putting a barcode on a person’s fingerprint is certainly non-invasive. As for voluntary, a parent or guardian is SUPPOSED to consent, but once the program is in place, it is also reasonable to anticipate prosecutors demanding it for someone they have a ‘reasonable belief’ or ‘probable cause’ to believe might be a problem and that a judge should order someone involuntarily into the program, though they would not get the federal funding in this specific bill,” said Gohmert.
Whitney Webb writer for the True Activist said in her article about the micro-chipping law that,
“Giving local police the authority to decide who is micro-chipped and who is not based on their mental soundness is a recipe for disaster. Though the bill specifically mentions those with Alzheimer and autism, how long before these tracking programs are extended to those with ADHD and Bipolar disorder among other officially recognized disorders. Even the dislike of authority is considered a mental disorder known as “Oppositional Defiant Disorder,” which could also warrant micro-chipping in the future. If these programs expand unchecked, how long will it be before all Americans are told that mass microchipping is necessary so that law enforcement and the government can better “protect” them? Many Americans have been content to trade their liberties for increased “security” in the post-9/11 world, particularly when the state uses these talking points. Yet, as Benjamin Franklin once said, “those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”
They’re starting off with dementia and developmental disabilities. They’re saying that given the chance you can choose a non-invasive and non-permanent tracking technology to be used on your loved one who suffers from dementia or a developmental disability. But what is going to happen when non-invasive and non-permanent tracking technology is no longer an option we can choose from. What is going to happen when its not just children with developmental disabilities but all the children in the United States?
If this bill passes and is signed into law it will open up a doorway for countless more opportunities for the federal government to continue their agenda of controlling every american citizen. Whether we like it or not.
Michael Snyder, columnist for Charisma News reported that in Dubai there will soon be “new injectable microchips that are inserted into the back of the hand will allow people to buy and sell without money.”
Snyder ended his article with this statement,
“Of course those who know the book of Revelation can see where all of this is going. The following is what Revelation 13:16-17 says: “He causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their forehead, so that no one may buy or sell, except he who has the mark or the name of the beast or the number of his name.”
We aren’t there yet, but we are heading down that road.
And if nobody seems to object when the U.S. House of Representatives passes a microchipping law, that will only embolden them to push the envelope even further in the not-too-distant future.”
If this bill passes in the Senate and is then signed into law by the President, without any hesitation or protest, then i do not know where the tracking will stop. The government knows our every move because WE choose to share our lives on social media and any other platform designed to track our personal information and location. But the fact that they are now wanting to pass legislation giving them the means and authority to track people by invasive matters is completely different and should alarm every single person in this country.
