Use of RFID Tracking Technology To Be Mandatory In US Food Stamp Program

Now The End Begins

Food stamp welfare individuals must soon be chipped

“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13:16-17)

In a little while, the above scene in Revelation 13 will become a global reality. People can no longer buy or sell without the mark of the beast. And sometimes that would mean no longer being able to eat!

The USDA is now considering biometric identification for all individuals who will want to benefit from their Food and Nutrition Services. The RFID chip may just soon be a must for everyone who does not want to starve!

The following is an excerpt of the executive summary of the FINAL REPORT of the Use of Biometric Identification Technology to Reduce Fraud in the Food Stamp Program:

Biometric identification technology provides automated methods to identify a person based on physical characteristics—such as fingerprints, hand shape, and characteristics of the eyes and face—as well as behavioral characteristics—including signatures and voice patterns.

Although used in law enforcement and defense for several years, it has recently been used in civilian applications and shows some promise to reduce the number of duplicate cases in the Food Stamp Program (FSP) and other assistance programs .

Already operational in some states

Biometric identification systems are currently operational at some level in Arizona, California (under county initiative, first by Los Angeles County), Connecticut, Illinois, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, and Texas. Finger imaging is the principal form of technology used in all eight States, though alternative technologies have simultaneously undergone trials in Massachusetts (facial recognition) and Illinois (retinal scanning). By the end of 2000, new systems are expected to be in place in California (statewide unified system), Delaware, and North Carolina. Other States are currently in the initial planning stages, including Florida, Maryland, Michigan, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina. However, there is little information available at this point regarding the specific course and trajectory these States will follow in terms of system types, implementation schedules, and the benefit programs in which they will implement the new requirement.

The States planned for implementation of their biometric identification systems in response to a wide variety of factors and considerations idiosyncratic to each State environment. Some States reported that their respective legislative mandates, which prescribed specific dates by which biometric systems were required to be in place, allowed insufficient time for development and planning. The States developed and followed implementation schedules in accordance with internal priorities and considerations. The States uniformly described their implementation processes as largely uneventful, though they encountered a variety of minor implementation issues, most of which were associated with the logistical difficulties of mobilizing and managing such a complex initiative.

Preparing staff for the implementation of the biometric systems, both philosophically and operationally, took different forms, priorities, and levels of effort in the States. At implementation, advance notification to clients and/or the general public about new biometric client identification procedures was considered important by all State representatives. The objective of providing advance notification was to inform and prepare clients for the additional application or recertification step (i.e., to explain the requirement and who is required to submit, and to address client concerns), as well as to accelerate enrollment of the existing caseload. All States prepared informational mailings to clients advising them of the new requirement. Some States reported developing additional outreach media including multilingual (English and Spanish) videos, posters, and brochures for viewing and distribution in the local office. Most of the States also identified various outlets in the community through which they informed the general public in advance about the implementation of biometric client identification procedures.

Program outcomes

The evaluations of finger imaging systems conducted by six States have produced the following findings.

  • A small number of duplicate applications (approximately 1 duplicate for every 5,000 cases) have been detected by finger imaging systems. Finger-imaging systems appear to detect more fraud in statewide implementations than in regional pilot systems. Additional matches have been found by interstate comparisons of finger-image data.
  • Institution of a finger-imaging requirement can produce a significant, short-term reduction in caseload, because some existing clients refuse to comply with the requirement. The number of refusals depends on the implementation procedures and appears to be lower when finger imaging is incorporated into the recertification process.
  • The most carefully controlled estimate of non-compliance among existing clients suggests that introduction of a finger-imaging requirement reduces participation by approximately 1.3%. However, this estimate reflects both reduced fraud and deterrence of eligible individuals and households.

    Biometric identification is a LOT different than getting a chip implanted in your body, which is what the picture tries to suggest. What the programs propose is just finger printing or retinal scans – NOT implanting a chip. Of course, people here just take this and run with it, and pretty soon, it is all “END of the World!” Just dig your head out of the sand…but this just fits your crazy narrative, doesn’t it??? sheesh!

    This is no surprise. It's also in Obama-care… Don't believe in bible prophecy? Maybe you should..

    I would like to see where they got the RFID in this article, as it is all about BIOMETRICS, which is fingerprints and the like, which most already use. It appears to be added by someone that wanted to get the article to go viral and raise unnecessary angst against the government w/o any data to back it up. Someone show me a government site that says that are planning to use RFID chips, and then it might be believable.

    And so he is about to appear soon …hmmmm LOOKING UP!

    I noticed the article did not specifically say anything about RFID being implemented for the food stamp program, only that biometrics (fingerprinting) was being used. I can see the logical leap being made here, but from reading the article title, I got the impression people were being implanted with RFID chips to get food stamps, and according to the article contents, this is clearly not the case.

    fingerprints, drug tests are not enough?..

      It is fulfilling Bible Prophecy in that the AntiChrist will e able to control what you eat – IF you will eat,.

        YES! I sure wish that people would stop trying to fulfill Biblical Prophecy. It’s getting ridiculous. I’m also pretty tired of everything that happens people point to the Bible and say “See, it was foretold!” Come on, if it was predicted, and you know the prediction, and you make that prediction a reality, then its not really a prophecy, it’s a playbook.

      DARPA wants to put nanchips in the US Military Troops.
      These “Eugenists” are what where dealing with and they are psychopathic!

    The food stamp program is not to reward people for not working, it is to subsidize the food companies and the agricorporations. It’s socialism for the rich.

    Well no brainier we are already so many toxins what’s a little chip

    • James X. Grief June 12, 2012 at 8:54 am - Reply

      Are you referring to the human race as toxic, or the toxins we ingest every day? As a cigarette smoker, I acknowledge the fact that I am poisoning my body, and don’t care because death is part of life anyway. A little chip like this is likely to react oddly to my body due to magnetic implants that I’ve had done by my body-mod professional, but other than that, RFID has been in use for a little over a decade now, and making it mandatory might cause the next step in human evolution toward the Singularity. 😀

      MORE LIKE A DEATH CHIP! Easy way to eliminate all the free loaders when the Government wants to get rid of the drain on the New World Order, AND THE FOOD SUPPLY! . They will want the dwindling food supply for the able bodied, able minded workers. NO WORK NO EAT!
