Andrea took the fight against “the Mark of the Beast”

What about microchips? Are they a mean to help people, or the opposite: a mean to accomplish a not so desirable goal:

” ..there is a time wherein one man ruleth over another to his own hurt.”  (Ecclesiastes 8:9)

That it’s really a serious business with microchips can be verified in many ways. Not least by a court case in Texas recently, because  a 15-year old student was barred from her studies after having refused to participate in the peculiar “microchip-experiment” that was – and is – going on in the High School she was attending, until January 18.

  A few articles gives a glimpse of the story –

 Quotation from Mashable.com January 9:

“John Jay High School in San Antonio, Texas began requiring students to wear badges with RFID tags to track students’ on-campus movements at the beginning of the fall semester.

Andrea Hernandez, 15, refused to wear the badge on religious grounds, claiming it was the ‘mark of the beast,’ according to Wired. She was suspended for disobeying the new rule and later sued the district. A temporary injunction allowed her to continue her studies untracked.

However, a federal court this week overturned that injunction after Hernandez refused the district’s offer to allow her to wear a chip-less identification badge.

The court found the deal was ‘reasonable’ and ‘removed [Hernandez’s] religious objection from legal scrutiny altogether.’ Hernandez must now either wear the badge or transfer to a school without the program.

The Rutherford Institute, which is representing Hernandez, is planning an appeal to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Hernandez has been given until Jan. 18 to decide whether to don the badge or change schools.

Hernandez’s district, the Northside Independent School District, has two high schools experimenting with RFID tracking to get better data on class attendance rates, to which education funding is directly tied. The district has over a dozen high schools, though some are specialized towards teaching skills for particular careers.

RFID chips use radio frequencies to transfer information between the chip and a receiver. They don’t require line-of-sight, allowing them to be embedded within documents or even under skin. Thus, they’re commonly used in new passports to track movement across borders and embedded into domestic pets for identification purposes.

The use of RFID tags to track humans, however, has been the focus of many debates over personal privacy. “

Quotation from Texas Public Radio February the 27 th :

“Northside Independent School District has begun testing its radio frequency identification project on its buses. While the district has previously stressed that students are only tracked on the two campuses in the RFID pilot, the bus readers are not actively collecting data.

Out of its 850 buses, five special education buses in NISD now have the RFID readers installed. According to the district, that is to test functionality.

‘This RFID system on these five buses are not operational in the sense that they are collecting location data on students,’ said Northside spokesman Pascual Gonzalez. ‘It’s strictly to see how well this equipment works on a vibrating moving bus.’

The readers were installed three weeks ago and are still being tested.

The five buses transport students to Jay High School and Jones Middle school – the two campuses using the RFID pilot program – and the Reddix Center, the district’s special education campus.

Jay and Jones students are already wearing the RFID tags, but those at the Reddix Center are not.

Gonzalez said the reason for using the technology on buses is similar to the reason it’s used at the schools – security and finances.  Much like state reimbursement for student attendance, school districts also receive money for transporting students.”

Quotation from an activist site – against RFID in schools:

“USA, Texas – Over on the We Are Change Texas YouTube Channel is the public discussion from last Monday’s RFID Forum, run by Texans for Accountable Government with RFID privacy expert and activist Dr Katherine Albrecht speaking about the RFID Student Locator Pilot Programme run by the Northside Independent School District in two schools John Jay High School and Anson Jones Middle School.

The school’s superindent and board were invited to attend, as was the vendor.  The school board declined and the vendor unfortunately got sick at the last minute.  Dr Katherine Albrecht was interviewed on the Alex Jones Show and revealed the following – The Northside Independent School District’s attitude was that the RFID scheme was done, a done deal.  Dr Katherine Albrecht then attended a city council meeting later in the day, had her name on the list to speak at the meeting and got told, when at the meeting by the school board, that she would not be allowed to speak.  (A repeated behavior by the school board, previously shown at a meeting in September 2012, where parents had little or no right to comment on the RFID scheme.)

At these two US schools there are at least 4,200 students wearing RFID tags round their neck with a Radio Frequency pulsing every 45 seconds emitting up to 75 feet.  This frequency is at 433MHz, which is near/just about in the Amateur Radio Frequency and a frequency commonly used for remote keyless entry.  433Mhz is an unliscenced industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) radio band and a simple internet search for 433MHz antenna/receiver shows how available this technology is to buy.  (The UWB location RFID at a UK College recently using a Real Time Location System (RTLS) pulsed at a 1 second interval at 6.35-6.75 GHz on an ultra wideband Radio Frequency for up to 100 feet.)

Andrea Hernandez, a 15 year old John Jay High School student, refused to wear a RFID tag and also refused to wear a dummy tag and as a consequence was barred from her school.   A gutsy stand by Andrea and supporters, upholding up her personal principles, did not convince a court decision on the matter of her still attending John Jay High School without a RFID Locator Tag and sadly in Andrea’s instance, a refusal to participate in an RFID scheme resulted in discrimination against her schooling options.  However there are now three Bills introduced in Texas Legislature dealing with RFID tracking students ‘Where a schools district may allow voluntary use of RFID – Schools districts must provide an alternative identification or even that ‘A school district may not require a student to use a RFID device or similar technology to identify the student, transmit information or track the location of the student

This recent public forum was opportunity to ask questions, voice concerns, discuss responsibilities, privacy and civil liberties of RFID location tracking, potential health issues of RFID and to keep the debate in an open, honest format.  Hopefully the prejudice that Andrea has experienced will not have to happen to another individual not wishing to participate in any location tracking device.”

 The public discussion can be listened to and watched on Youtube, as mentioned above. Legal and medical aspects, among others, are brought forth in the debate. Direct biblical and apocalyptic considerations are made on the 7 th clip: “It is a spiritual battle
