Chronicle Editorial, RFID Implants and Cancer

The San Francisco Chronicle continues its strong record of support for common sense RFID regulation. Here they praise the recent passage of SB 362 (Simitian)...now we await the Governor's decision.

But the workers of California can breathe easy about one thing today, at least: the state Legislature has made it illegal for employers to implant identification devices in their skin.


We're glad to see that Simitian's other colleagues understood the ethical necessity of stopping a bad practice before it got out of control.

The Washington Post reports that RFID chip implants have been linked to animal tumors. Let's hope the implants aren't a threat to humans, but until we know otherwise, we hope this new information may persuade the Governor to sign SB 362.

When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved implanting microchips in humans, the manufacturer said it would save lives, letting doctors scan the tiny transponders to access patients' medical records almost instantly. The FDA found "reasonable assurance" the device was safe, and a sub-agency even called it one of 2005's top "innovative technologies."

But neither the company nor the regulators publicly mentioned this: A series of veterinary and toxicology studies, dating to the mid-1990s, stated that chip implants had "induced" malignant tumors in some lab mice and rats.


"There's no way in the world, having read this information, that I would have one of those chips implanted in my skin, or in one of my family members," said Dr. Robert Benezra, head of the Cancer Biology Genetics Program at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York.

These studies lead me to ask one simple question: "What did the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) know about these findings and when did they know it?" And, did they know it before approving their use for humans? We’re waiting for an answer FDA…

Prove I'm a liar!

In 1992 I was implanted with a microchip by the California Department of Corrections. Prove I'm a liar!

Just like the Angel of Death* HaloScan, IBM, Avid, Veri Chip and other company's use subcutaneous human tracking device, audio servalence systems and other venues against American people for fun and profit. Prove I'm a liar!

Since the Nuremberg trials the Nuremberg code of universal medical ethics have moved into California's Silicon Valley which is being protected by our own governments representatives. Prove I'm a liar

The national fraud squad has opened an investigation into the affair. The four are suspected of abuse, aggravated assault, causing death through negligence, fraud, forgery, breach of statutory duty, and disruption of legal proceedings. Prove I'm a liar!

*Dr. Josef Mengele was a German SS officer and a physician in the German Nazi concentration camp Auschwitz-Birkenau. He gained notoriety chiefly for being one of the SS physicians who supervised the selection of arriving transports of prisoners, determining who was to be killed and who was to become a forced labourer, and for performing human experiments on camp inmates, amongst whom Mengele was known as the Angel of Death.

Since 1987, Nancy Pelosi has represented California's Eighth District in the House of Representatives wile being on the board of Veri Chip.

Tommy Thompson, who approved RFID chips for use in humans back when he was serving under Bush as Secretary of Health & Human Services, is getting $40,000 a year from Applied Digital Solutions (the company that owns VeriChip) and has received company stock worth about $1 million.

As California's senior Senator, Dianne Feinstein has built her reputation on condoning torture, working with both Democrats and Republicans to find solutions to the problems facing California and the Nation court who have chosen to ignore human and civil right.

You Worthless Tech Trollops have been instrumental in working toward a North American Union. When will America wake up to the fact that our government knows human nature. Using sex offenders to justify their actions when what they are doing is universally wrong, is underhanded at least and fundamentally treasonous by using devices that are unsafe. Hiding the finding of company's product and placing humans at risk seems to be of no consequence to those that take them to court on habeas corpus writs.

I was told by my attorney that my case was demurer which means the state says so what.

So what if you are diabetic and need to enroll in Adult Swim at your YMCA because of injuries for exercise.
So what if you are disabled and we made you move.
So what if you live a good honest life.
So what if when we made you move you were going to school to learn a trade and we disrupted your life during your finals and you could not finish your training.
So what if you and your wife who by the way has never done anything to anyone is waking in the middle of the night crying because you stand to be homeless for fear that no one will rent to you.
We lived in an apartment in Burbank CA when someone decided to place flyer's at our home about my 23 year old sex offense and get us kicked out of our home. So what.

Reminds me of the Quote by Pastor Martin Niemöller:
First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists and I did not speak out because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me.
We have one week to come up with a bunch of money to fight for rights for all Americans who are losing because they are better than sex offenders till their family member loses their trunks when diving into the community pool.
Sorry America we have no money. We are poor. Week to week surviving on what we have which is less each day.
When these laws get done with us, they will not be satisfied.
Prove I'm a liar!
