Revelation 13 (NIV): "He (the Beast) also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name."
If you can mentally step outside of yourself and the society in which you live, and observe dispassionately the black hole into which you and all of humanity are being drawn, what you will see is the fascinating convergence and culmination of events foreseen more than two thousand years ago and recorded in the Christian Bible.
The question is, are you going to stop this march into oblivion? Can you stop or affect this in any way? Should you? If the Bible predicts the Orwellian tragedy now encroaching upon our doorstep, must you passively accept what is coming and be sucked down like a chip of wood entering a whirlpool?
The federal government has a new program called the National Animal Identification System (NAIS) now in effect on a 'voluntary' basis and scheduled for full mandatory compliance in January, 2009. Formal, public announcement of the program will be made in April, 2007.
NAIS has, of course, a noble stated purpose, which is rapid response to an outbreak of animal disease within these United States. Mad Cow disease and Bird Flu are examples of potentially devastating agricultural animal diseases that need to be discovered, contained and eliminated as quickly as possible to protect the health and food supply of our citizens.
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags implanted inside or attached to each animal will enable identifying and tracking every domestic animal within the human food chain. An RFID tag hidden in your purchase is what sometimes triggers the anti-theft alarm as you walk past the security panels when leaving a store.
RFID has enough capacity to allow a separate tracking number to be assigned to every individual item of commerce; every shirt, book, box of cereal, roll of photographic film, everything you buy, own and use. RFID can track every animal you eat, all the way from the newly born piglet on the farm to the package of pork chops in the grocery store.
RFID can be used to track all property and inventory. Revelations 13 tells us to expect, and research and development of RFID devices now underway will soon enable, the federal government to track all government property and inventory, including the ability to track and control the government�s human property known as �you.�
The convergence of NAIS and RFID enables the Beast Computer to place its mark on every item of commerce. If the Beast Computer does not, will not, or is instructed not to recognize its identifying mark, the Beast will not let you buy or sell.
Conform, bow down, or starve. Will you let this happen? Almost everyone will allow this. Will you and should you allow this Biblical abomination to happen? Almost all of the sheeple will comply without complaint or dissent.
NAIS begins this year, in April, when 25% of all 'premises' where agricultural animals are kept are required to be registered with the federal government. By January, 2008, all premises and all agricultural animals must be registered. By 2009, a fine of up to $1,000 per day, in direct violation of the 8th Amendment to the US Constitution, will be assessed for failure to comply.
There is a fee of $10 per year to register your premises. You must provide extensive, detailed information to the federal and state governments about your property and animals. Keeping and submitting those records will be a burden. Registration surely will create eventual authorization for Animal Rights activists and Environmentalists to enter and search your property for violations of animal welfare and environmental regulations.
You must report every chicken that hatches, every pig, every horse, every agricultural livestock animal that is born, sold, eaten, escapes, or dies. Currently there are exceptions only for catfish and goldfish. Under current language you must declare and inventory all other animals, even a litter of kittens or puppies or your pet iguana. If you take your animals for veterinary treatment and your registration permit is not current, the vet will be required to turn you in to federal authorities for prosecution including fines and jail.
In typical government fashion, driven and crafted by lawyers, bureaucrats and nitpicky Department empire-builders, 'premises' presently includes every place where an animal resides. Not just farms, not just your horse at the boarding stable, but even Grandma's chicken coop, your home where you have a dog, cat and canary, and an apartment building in downtown St. Louis where a child has a pet hamster. All those places and animals must be registered with the federal government or eventually draw up to a $1,000 per day fine for noncompliance.
It always is easier to win a game if you can ignore the rules that your opponent must follow. In typical federal agency fashion, that includes ignoring limits placed upon the federal government by the U.S. Constitution. The Constitution does not mention among the enumerated powers granted to the federal government the power to control private property within States, such as the Animal Identification program. "An unconstitutional act is not law; it confers no rights; it imposes no duties; affords no protection; it creates no office; it is in legal contemplation, as inoperative as though it had never been passed." (Norton vs. Shelby County, 118 US 425 page 442). See also the 9th and 10th Amendments to the U.S. Constitution.
Under NAIS, animal owners still �own� animals and pay for the animals' upkeep, but the federal government controls how animals are produced, kept, sold and used. Private ownership of property, under government control, is Fascism.
You will become a criminal if you raise or have animals without government permission, even if you raise livestock only for your own personal consumption and enjoyment. If you become a criminal then your entire life will fall under government control. The animals you thought were yours are yours no longer, but become part of 'the national herd' under supervision and control of the federal government and probably under eventual control of United Nations Global Government. Karl Marx wrote, �Communism can be summarized in one sentence: The abolition of private property.� Marx would be pleased with the folks at NAIS.
Your would-be owners in government say NAIS is necessary to protect America's food supply. It isn�t. The confirmed outbreak of Mad Cow disease in Washington state in December, 2003, was discovered and eradicated without recourse to elimination of private property rights and criminalization of livestock owners.
NAIS would force you to give up your rights and your private property as security against an animal epidemic that has not happened and may never happen in these United States. Shield yourself against attack by Terrorist Pigeons. Remember the comment by William Pitt in the British House of Commons, who said "Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human liberty; it is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves." William Pitt could have been talking about NAIS.
Texas has enacted, and Tennessee is considering, legislation implementing NAIS. If there is no public outcry for repeal of NAIS and punishment of the NAIS perpetrators, NAIS will spread nationwide, like a Socialist poison gas that expands to fill every space available. States that sell out to NAIS will be richly rewarded with grants of federal money obtained from the same taxpayers that NAIS bureaucrats want the authority to put out of business. Life for the farmer and private citizen will follow Orwell�s book �1984�.
NAIS can be stopped, but it will take good citizens to notice, to care, and then to act decisively to end this sneak attack on private property and Constitutional rights.
