A Texas school is implanting RFID transponder chips subcutaneously in students to allow the school to locate them on campus. Oh…wait, did I say implant? Sorry. That’s the next step, right now they are only making the students carry RFID chipped ID cards with them so the school can locate them on campus. Got ahead of myself there, sometimes the “Big Government Supporter” in me gets carried away.
A Texas school district, as of October 1, is requiring all students to attend class with their RFID chipped ID cards on their person. They must have them at all times or they will be denied participation in certain school activities. Some students have been told they will not be allowed to vote for the school’s homecoming King and Queen if they do not carry their ID card while others have been denied access to certain areas of the school such as the cafeteria or library.
The school claims that the RFID chip will, “increase safety.” However, for $30 sexual predators can submit a Freedom of Information Act Request and be provided the name of every student attending any of the 112 schools that will ultimately be impacted by the RFID program. The RFID card for students contains a battery, so unlike passive RFID chips that need to be pinged to transmit, this RFID ID card actively transmits a signal. Combined with an easily attainable RFID receiver a predator can easily track and find the location of fresh young targets to abduct, molest, sodomize, rape or murder.
The school however is disinterested in this safety concern, dismissing it for their more important and immediate concern of securing $2,000,000 in additional federal funding they will receive by improving their truancy rates; 25% of the funding has already been spent creating the RFID system in the first place.
Truancy rates will improve, but not because students are attending class again. They will improve because students are giving their RFID cards to other students on campus so they will appear as if they are at school. The school only needs a means in which to prove their truancy rate has improved in order to secure the additional taxpayer money, so providing a system-generated report to the Federal Government showing an “improvement” in truancy will be sufficient, despite the fact that no actual change in truancy occurred. In other words, the school will receive additional money by proving how many ID cards remained on campus, not students. For our Government, notorius for not being interested in enforcing social welfare handout participation rules, this will be more than sufficient to secure the $2M.
When the parents of one student protested the system and supported their daughter’s right not to carry an RFID chip, the Deputy Superintendent, Ray Galindo, issued a statement to the parents:
We are simply asking your daughter to wear an ID badge as every other student and adult on the Jay campus is asked to do. I urge you to accept this solution so that your child’s instructional program will not be affected. As we discussed, there will be consequences for refusal to wear an ID card as we begin to move forward with full implementation.
Got that? Urge you…accept this…there will be consequences for refusal…full implementation. Also note that, “every other student and adult” is wearing them. This is a typical Statist tactic. The one thing Statists fear the most is independent thought. In order to crush this and turn the herd against you, they must publicly condemn and shame you for not following the herd, for not doing your part for the collective, for thinking on your own.
This Government representative is threatening the parents that these Government schools will refuse to educate their child (despite the tax money they are forced to pay, or be imprisoned, to provide that education) if they do not agree to force their daughter to be tracked and monitored regardless of the parent’s safety or Constitutional violation of freedom concerns.
This is greed. This is abuse of authority. This is corruption. This is tyranny. This is………Government.
The parents have been stripped of their right to decide what is best for their own daughter. They must succumb to Government mandate or they and their daughter will be punished by the State. If they keep her at the school she will be denied access to various areas and events as punishment, and it appears even more dire consequences will ensue for failure to comply if they persist. If they remove her from the school they will either have to move her to another school district, enroll her in private school, or home school her, all of which carry substantial costs to the family in addition to the taxes they will be forced to continue paying that provide for a public school education that they have had to abandon to protect their freedoms.
Big Government always takes your freedoms under the flag of, “your safety.” That is why we are now subject to Constitutional trampling by The Patriot Act and the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) where American citizens can be held indefinitely without cause, a trial, or a warrant – a complete violation of our Constitutional rights of “innocent until proven guilty,” but the Government simply responds with, “it’s for your own safety.”
The bill [NDAA] allows the government to hand over suspected terrorists to the military for indefinite detention—including U.S. citizens. Suspects are also subjected to potentially being held on foreign soil in facilities like Guantanamo Bay. People under scrutiny by the NDAA are tried under a military tribunal instead of a judicial court, violating their Fourth Amendment rights…and are denied their right to habeas corpus (Link).
Habeas corpus is your Constitutional right to be brought before a Judge for your alleged crime. NDAA nullifies that right. NDAA is current law.
Nullification of our 4th Amendment protections and habeas corpus, indefinite detention of U.S. citizens, unwarranted wire taps and sneak and peeks into citizens’ private homes. It doesn’t matter if any of these have been used yet, it only matters that the laws are on the books allowing future Presidents and politicians to use them when the time is right, as they see fit, for any reason they feel is necessary, “for your safety.” And now…”for your safety,” we have RFID chips for our children.
If you are willing to look the other way on RFID chips for our children, just like you did for the abuses of the TSA, just like you did for The Patriot Act, like you did for NDAA, just like you do for all the things the Government is going to do and does “for our safety” or “for our own good” then you must be willing to accept complete Government domination.
You must agree that you are okay with RFID implants at birth, “for their safety” and to “protect citizens from terrorists,” as well as warrantless searches of private homes, cars, property and random searches of individuals on the street, at school, at work, as long as the Government deems it necessary, “for your safety.” If you support RFID chips on campus, The Patriot Act, the NDAA, then you must by default accept complete Government control over you, your children, your family and your property as long as the Government claims the need is, “for your safety.”
Anyone who supports this constant and abusive destruction of our rights and freedoms is a traitor to the United States. If you are willing to allow Government to do anything it wants, “for your safety” then you will get your wish – Government will do, anything it wants because there is no limit to what can be done for you, and to you, in the name of, “your safety.”
