Posted on 11/26/2009 8:50:28 PM PST by jonatron
VeriChip (CHIP), the company that markets a microchip implant that links to your online health records, has acquired Steel Vault (SVUL), a credit monitoring and anti-identity theft company. The combined company will operate under a new name: PositiveID.
The all-stock transaction will leave PositiveID in charge of a burgeoning empire of identity, health and microchip implant businesses that will only encourage its critics. BNET previously noted that some regard the company as part of a prophecy in the Book of Revelation (because the HealthLink chip carries an RFID number that can be used as both money and proof of ID) or as part of President Obamas secret Nazi plan to enslave America.
The most obvious criticism to be made of the deal is that it potentially allows PositiveID to link or cross-check patient health records (from the HealthLink chip) to peoples credit scores. One assumes that the company will put up firewalls to prevent that. PositiveID CEO Scott Silverman said:
PositiveID will be the first company of its kind to combine a successful identity security business with one of the worlds first personal health records through our Health Link business. PositiveID will address some of the most important issues affecting our society today with our identification tools and technologies for consumers and businesses.
Unless, of course, consumers dont actually want to be implanted with chips, have their health records available over the internet, or have their medical records linked to their credit scores.
Microchip Implant to Link Your Health Records, Credit History, Social Security
” Unless, of course, consumers dont actually want to be implanted with chips, have their health records available over the internet, or have their medical records linked to their credit scores. “
.. at which point they will no longer be able to receive helth services, conduct business etc.
Seems like I read something about a similar thing somewhere.
If people don’t have anything to hide or don’t mind being controlled, what do they have to fear of this? /s
Anyone trying to chip me will die!!!
Would have preferred this stuff NOT happening in my lifetime...
John and his Revelations were spot on. Does that mean the rest of the story is going to be happening,too?
If I invested in companies/ideas that I knew would be happening in the end times would that be evil of me?
Hehe, good question. Though hopefully you won’t be around to collect the returns.
I think the mark would be a real visual open mark not just a scar where a chip had been inserted, though the marking may very well involve a chip. Scripture says its a “mark ON the forehead or right hand” not just a chip inserted IN the forehead or right hand. Satan’s followers are to be openly branded to his service, stand outs will be those not openly branded. You’d need a visual mark for quick recognition to allow round-ups to occur in crowds or to be spotted from crowd control cameras....invisible chips don’t allow for this. An open mark or brand has certain psychological control effects desirable to dictators that “hidden” chips don’t have.
Now, I’m not a fan of chipping either and it may well be a precursor to what is coming. The very thought of being chipped like livestock to be bought and sold is absolutely abhorrent and should be resisted to the death just on that basis alone.
Firstly, it's about the growth of the information society and the linking of personal data into centralized databases tracking what used to be the private citizenry.
Secondly, it's about control & power.
