Who's Tracking You?

The misuse of tracking implants.

On Monday, September 12, 2005, Sen. Joseph Biden questioned Supreme Court Justice candidate Roberts.  In the course of the interrogation, Biden informed the candidate that he might have to decide the legality of subdermal tracking implants.  To persons who have experienced covert persecution, this kind of statement would raise serious issues.  Certainly, the expectation of such a decision presumes the knowledge or expectation of the illegal or unethical use of such devices.  Were such devices being misused at that time?

gps implantThe official pretext for such a query would certainly be that the year before the FDA approved a subdermal RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) implant invented and marketed by the Verichip Corporation.  In that light, the discontinuance of manufacture and marketing that implant product in 2010 should settle all concerns on this topic.  However, the event that likely caused the Verichip implant to be discontinued may raise other concerns.  A man named Bob Boyce claims two implants were removed from his body.1  He said it began with conflict he had with an associate who had ties to the NSA.  After passing out due to seeming sedation in the presence of his associate, he returned to his own lab to find his right shoulder was emitting radio frequency (RF) radiation.  After time had allowed the development of tumors at the implant sites, he had them surgically removed, the second in a manner to create proper forensic evidence.  He attributed them to be Verichip RFID chips.

In his case however, the continuous emission of RF from the implant likely marks them as something other than RFID.  RFID can only operate when powered up externally by a low frequency radio beam.  In isolation from a power up beam, an RFID chip cannot emit any signal.  In his case. covert technology of another kind was likely in play.  Because of the implausibility of a rice-sized implant having long-term power for radio broadcasting, some reason that such chips must be powered from electrical energy derived from the body.  Speculations even range to alien technology as the only explanation.  The possible NSA source, and the inevitable tumors that resulted may suggest another source of power:  to use body tissues with the implant as a hybrid battery.  The implant would have power terminals of dissimilar metals suitable to create battery power, then body tissues conductive due to electrolyte content would form the remainder of the battery.  The normal bulk of a battery would be avoided, enabling implant power in a very small package.  Then obviously, the tissue involved in the battery would be chemically traumatized sufficient to explain the growth of the tumors.  Ruthless! and Verichip Corporation's reputation is smeared, although reasonable persons would question the ethics of the implantation of even their chip.

If the Verichip implant is somewhat vindicated in this matter, another corporation's implant may be more sinister.  Advertisements selling an implant named Bio-Trac marketed by Germany’s Voss-Mauser allegedly operates on  GPS technology.2  Using GPS technology would require constant operation under power in contrast to Verichip.  Perhaps it would power itself more like the device that was used on Bob Boyce.  After a period of time the advertisements were removed from the internet and declared a hoax.  Only unlinked web pages remain to tell the tale.  Of course we all know that protected covert technology, when discovered, is subject to disinformation.

What are you going to do if you pass out due to sedation or intruders come to you while asleep, and you wake up to a suspicious sore on your body?  What if they come after you?  Beware!
