NO, Obamacare does not include any provision for RFID microchipping
By Martin Hill
March 3, 2013
Despite credible debunking of a wild internet rumor alleging that "OBAMACARE WILL FORCE ALL AMERICANS TO BE CHIPPED BY MARCH 23, 2013!," the nonsense persists and is still being disseminated, posted on social networks such as facebook, and even believed by sincere well-meaning people.
With this alleged "RFID chipping deadline" only weeks away, it's appropriate to put this silly nonsense in the trash where it belongs, once and for all.
But first, just to clarify, LibertyFight.com opposes Obamacare, opposes Obama, opposes RFID microchips, and opposes RFID chipping of people, animals, passports, drivers licenses, and retail items.
There are enough legitimate issues to oppose without making up nonsense to discredit the true liberty movement. As far as Obamacare, government has no legitimate authority to force people to buy health insurance, or anything else from a private corporation. Republicans for the most part seem to acknowledge this fact, yet many of them surprisingly defend "mandatory automobile insurance", which is nothing more than an identical statist scheme that Obama himself used as a justification for Obamacare. Supreme Court Justice John Roberts, who was falsely touted as a 'conservative' when occultist George W. Bush appointed him, is the traitor who sealed Obamacare, claiming the tyrannical law is legitimate because it is a tax. In confirmation rulings in 2003, Roberts said "Roe v. Wade is the settled law of the land. There is nothing in my personal views that would prevent me from fully and faithfully applying that precedent." This despite the fact that Roe v. Wade is not a law and real pro-lifers have consistently hoped that the ruling would be overturned. Mitt Romney, the ultimate flip-flopping globalist Mormon-cult clown and long-time abortion proponent who once boasted that "he is to the left of Ted Kennedy", signed into law the precurser to Obamacare while he was governor of Massachusetts. Romney is fully in support of forced medical insurance by government.

Dr. Katherine Albrecht is the definitive expert on all things RFID and author of the best-selling book SPYCHIPS: How Major Corporations and Government Plan to Track Your Every Purchase and Watch Your Every Move. Her bio states
"Katherine holds a Doctorate in Education (Ed.D.) in Human Development and Psychology from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Her research focused on Consumer Education and Privacy issues. Katherine also received a Masters in Education (Ed.M.) from Harvard, with a concentration in Technology, Innovation, and Education. Katherine holds an undergraduate degree in Business Administration and International Marketing, graduating with magna cum laude honors."
Albrecht has testified nationally and internationally before legislative bodies, corporations, and think tanks on the issue. Albrecht is a Christian liberty advocate and has a nationally syndicated radio show which airs six days a week. She broke the story of the medical studies confirming that RFID chipping of animals causes cancer in the animals. [chipmenot.org.]
Albrecht also opposes so-called grocery store "rewards cards", privacy-invading schemes which compile data on consumers which, in many cases, has been stored and later used against them [nocards.org.] Katherine has often relayed the story of when she was a little girl, her grandmother sat her down at the kitchen table and warned her of the Bible prophesy from Revelations of how one day there will be a mark of the beast which people will be required to buy and sell and which Christians must oppose. [antichips.com.]
"All alike, little and great, rich and poor, free men and slaves, must receive a mark from him on their right hands, or on their foreheads, and none might buy or sell, unless he carried this mark, which was the beast's name, or the number that stands for his name." Revelation 13:16-17.
The FDA approved implantable microchips for use in humans in 2004. However, it is certainly not mandatory and Obamacare does not require it. On her June 30, 2012 program, Albrecht dispelled the rumor that Obamacare included some sort of mandatory RFID chipping of Americans. The free MP3 archive of the show is here. The episode archive info is here. Katherine discussed the issue and read a statement she had drafted in response to all the e-mail inquiries she had received on the matter. Below is a video excerpt of her explanation and the entire text of her statement. She has also written an extensive "Microchip Implants: Answers to Frequently Asked Questions"

"The rumor that the "Obamacare" health care bill contains a provision to microchip the public has spread far and wide. Thousands of web sites refer to it, so it's no surprise people are getting it wrong. I'd like to set the record straight, however. The law does not require chip implants.
The 906-page final version of the PATIENT PROTECTION AND AFFORDABLE CARE ACT, otherwise known as "Obamacare," can be found online here:
http://docs.house.gov/energycommerce/ppacacon.pdf (full-text PDF with amendments and consolidations through May 2010)
You can read it cover to cover and you won't find anything about microchip implants.
Some commentators are mistakenly referring to an old HOUSE VERSION of the health care bill, H.R. 3200, a 2,454-page mega-bill introduced in 2009 that did not pass. That bill contained a Section 2561 where "implantable medical devices" were mentioned in a section that called for the creation of a "National Medical Device Registry."
That section referred to FDA-approved Class II "implantable medical devices" that are in wide use today, such as pacemakers, artificial hips, drug delivery pumps, heart stents, and others. The defunct H.R. 3200 bill would simply have created a requirement to register those implanted medical devices in order to evaluate their post-market risk and evaluate patient safety over time. It made no mention of implantable microchips.
The FDA is charged with evaluating and approving medical devices before they can be offered for sale, but it does not currently have a way to follow up once they have been sold. The concern over the long-term safety of implantable devices is a real one, given that implanted foreign bodies have the potential to cause cancer. (See my cancer report and FAQ at http://www.antichips.com
as well as animal cases at http://www.chipmenot.com for evidence.) Nevertheless, this provision did not make it into the final version of the health care legislation.
A different bill numbered H.R. 3590 (not H.R .3200) is the version of health care legislation that President Obama actually signed into law on March 23, 2010. That bill did not contain a requirement for a "medical device registry," made no mention of implantable medical devices, and most assuredly did not mention implantable microchips.
In sum, as the nation's leading opponent of RFID and implantable microchips, I can categorically state that the Obamacare legislation does not contain a provision for implanting microchips into people. Nor did any previous versions of health care legislation introduced in Congress contain such language.
With all the other privacy-invading provisions in the health care legislation, I hate to see people spending their energy on something that isn't there. Hopefully we can now lay the rumor to rest.
In freedom and in truth,

The Catholic Diocese of Joliet, Illinois offers a document entitled
'What Catechists Should Know About the End Times' which explains differences between Catholic and protestant beliefs on the matter. It states, in part,
"Biblical fundamentalists, through the popular Left Behind books (by Tim LaHaye Jerry B. Jenkins) and movies like The Seventh Sign, The Omen and End of Days, have reinvented the end of the world for many people in our culture. "Rapture" theology has them afraid that God may snatch them up to heaven without warning, or even worse, leave them behind. Every Catholic catechist should be familiar with these books, especially the children’s series. While Left Behind may appear to be based on the Bible, it actually promotes non-biblical fear counter to the Church’s hope-filled teachings about end times.
The General Directory for Catechesis points out that teaching about eschatology (end times and last things) has been weak in Catholic faith formation. Therefore, it is important for catechists to be aware of what the Church does and does not teach about the end of time, so they can help children and youth understand it in the light of what popular culture and their fundamentalist acquaintances promote....
Our Catholic, belief is that the time of Tribulation for the church began two thousand years ago with the coming of Christ. We acknowledge that near the end of time there will be Anti-Christ(s) – things or people that draw us away from Christ. We believe in the second coming of Christ, and that the Last Judgment will be based on our acceptance or refusal of divine love, indicated by how we treated others.
We, as Catholics, believe the Book of Revelation is about the Emperor Nero, written in symbols and "code", so that John could get away with saying negative things about the Roman Empire. It is not a detailed description about the end of time, but a document written to give hope to Christians suffering persecution and facing death for their faith....
