Traceability in a Sustainable World:

A look into the very real RFID agenda ensnaring the earth


Part 1: Introductions

Picture a future where your right to privacy is a thing of the past. Where your government, doctor, retail stores, your home, your neighbor, and you keep accurate details of every transaction you make, whom you associate with, the amount of every and any goods you use, where you worship, your impact on the planet, your impact on your community, and any other piece of data that can be recorded as it pertains to your life. Many of us have seen articles and books that advocate for just such a world. Many more of us have read opinion pieces, and heard rumors of plans for such societies. Most recently as the Healthcare debate was heating up here in the United States, a group promoting Congressman Ron Paul published an article on it's website claiming that such a system via microchipping had been written into the Healthcare Reform Bill. Is any of this true? If so, who's behind it? If so, how far has such an agenda spread? How close are we to implementation of such a systematic society? A short time ago, I asked Susanna, a research associate, to help me dig into these questions. What was found during our investigation will shock some, and will be hard to believe by others. In this article, and those that follow, I will attempt to answer all of these questions and many more. Our investigation will show that such an agenda not only exists, but is far more advanced than anyone had imagined. We will explore the history, funding, and implementation of the many arms of this agenda, as well as some that have taken hold under our noses while no one noticed. Over the course of this series of articles we will cover many subjects from U.S. Politics to Social Media, from international treaties to social services, from iPhones to Echelon. The full scope will take time to explore, and may take a few of these articles to become 100% clear to some. While others may begin to immediately see the bigger picture. As is suggested by the title of this part, this article is a introduction to the overall agenda. Here we will begin with the outline of the subject, which is global in nature. As I have found, one of the reasons this agenda went unnoticed is because many don't know what to look for and if they have seen it, it was not recognized for what it was. This is no fault of the average observer. There have been slick redefinitions of terms that have allowed this agenda to remain under the radar for as long as it has.


No place can this be better witnessed than within the constructs of a United Nations sanctioned not for profit organization called GS1. Before we get into the redefinitions we must first understand what GS1 says about itself, its duties, and who makes up the organization. According to GS1: "GS1 is a leading global organisation dedicated to the design and implementation of global standards and solutions to improve the efficiency and visibility of supply and demand chains globally and across sectors. The GS1 system of standards is the most widely used supply chain standards system in the world. " http://www.gs1.org/

So in a nut shell GS1 is a organization that sets standards for supply chains internationally. This doesn't sound too bad does it? What though are the standards that GS1 wishes to have set? One of these is the GS1 Global Traceability Standard which requires everything produced for any use be tagged and identifiable via varying means, from bar-coding to RFID chipping. Among the Traceability Standard we also find that any machine used in production of materials must be identifiable in the same way. The same can be said for trucks, planes, or boats shipping the goods, crates which goods are packaged in, stores where the merchandise is sold, as well as any other aspect which influenced the production or sale of the product. The products range from cell phones, to fresh produce, to automobiles, to clothing, as well as anything else that can be produced or sold. In a normal world this is where a supply chain ends. However, in the GS1 dictionary, supply chain means from start of production to the end of a products life. This means they want continual information on the product long after you have purchased it. Another aspect that must be taken into account is the traceability standard that states the system must incorporate real time identification of parties, items, and events that have had a relationship with the product within its life. Did you catch that? Parties!!! According again to GS1 and their standards, parties refers to any individual involved in production, shipping, sales, or purchasing of a product. How was it GS1 proposed to identify things within the supply chain? Does GS1 have different systems in place to identify these parties? No they do not. GS1 proposes to identify YOU the same way they want to identify every other object, through RFID.


Now that we have established a desire by a group to do such a thing, one is left wondering is this fanciful talk or a viable threat? To answer this, let's look at who is working to implement GS1 standards. Driving forces for GS1 include North Atlantic Treaty Organization, World Trade Organization, World Health Organization, and World Customs Organization. Partners of GS1 include corporations influencing all walks of life including, Microsoft, Baxter, GM, IBM, Pfizer, Walmart, Google, and many many more. So many more that the odds are much better of you guessing who is on the list than who isn't. GS1 has branches in many of the countries which have agreed to implement their standards, these include India, Japan, China, Russia, the EU, and the United States. In the United States, GS1 has partnered with the US Chamber of Commerce, FDA, Department of Veterans Affairs, Department of Defense and many others to see to the implementation within the US. In June 2009, the EU GS1 launched the Transatlantic Traceability Infrastructure (TTI) Project. This part of the project was designed to fast track RFID implementation across Europe. What has remained quiet is that TTIP is a collaborative agreement between the US and the EU to fast track implementation in both. The projects of GS1 take into account anyway someone may purchase a product. This includes a section on Ecommerce which by its own definitions would make the Internet of Things a reality. There are also provisions for ordering products over the phone, which we will explore in more depth in a upcoming article. Now that you have a basic understanding of GS1, you may ask how far out is full implementation? GS1 has available on its site implementation projections which are sobering. According to GS1, 2009 was to be the year of preparation. All products and pieces of infrastructure were to be developed and in place by the end of 2009. Again according to GS1, this goal was met ahead of schedule. GS1 also claims 2010 as the year full implementation and operation is to begin, and again GS1 is ahead of schedule. There are still a couple of sectors where work needs to be done for this to be achieved. One of these is the healthcare industry, is it a coincidence that the Healthcare Reform Bill would make the healthcare industry in compliance with GS1 standards? This subject we will be looking at in depth in a upcoming article. Now that you understand the part of this international organization in implementing a complete RFID infrastructure, we can now go forward in upcoming articles and look at pilot projects, funding, the politics behind the agenda, and much more.

This agenda is real, and its implementation will forever alter life as we know it. The provisions within GS1 cover all aspects of business. There are numerous connections to be made, which will take us from captains of industry, to US politicians, deep into the Green movement, to some of the richest men on the planet, to those that were bailed out due to their "bad practices". My upcoming articles will explore these connections and how we got here. While we slept, a trap has been set, one that will soon ensnare the earth. My goal with these articles is to educate those reading in such a way that you will recognize the agenda when you see it. Only then can you be able to educate others. I encourage questions and discussion and will do my best to answer any directed my way. Susanna is well educated on this subject as well, and I must convey a great deal of thankfulness for her help on this project. Without her this project would not be as full of information as it is. To all others who have sent me information or have expressed an interest in this agenda, I thank you as well and hope this first article has been educational. For the rest of you, stay tuned as we are just getting warmed up!

  4. From a Mexican mother of family living in Chicago only one and a half year ago,

    Thank you very very much, J.D. The hard thing is that the others, some of whom have stopped talking to me (including members of my close family) believe all this without calling me "hysterical" and causing a "huge damage" to my son, for teaching him to read the signs as the Lord tell us through the Bible. The information you give us is an invaluable tool for doing so.
    God bless you.

  5. Is there a device to find RFID chips in products? Something I will start looking to purchase.

  6. All,

    Thanks. There will be a lot of information covered here, and I am looking forward to discussing it with every one.

    Jose,

    I have encountered many personal road blocks within my own house. It is hard when those you love are your harshest critics. Pray for them, warn them, and eave the rest up to the Lord.

    agie,

    There are several ways to detect RFID within a product. It depends on how you want to detect it. The handheld RFID reader would be your best choice, but costly. This would give you the information stored on the tag. If you were simply looking to detect its presence, any other tool that picks up UHF or other radio waves, so long as tuned to the right frequency would detect a tag. Finding what frequency to search is pretty basic as most producers tell you at what range their tags run.

  11. Planetary Skin looks like a modern repeat of the post-diluvian attempt to measure the earth, with sun temples, ley lines, stone circles etc, ending in the Tower of Babel fiasco. I wonder where the occult connection to all of this lies. Nothing new under the sun. A recipe for disaster, of course.

  16. What should be the response of the church to this? You have Scriptures such as Revelation 13:16; 18:4. Yet the church seems so fragmented and divided. In this time of world crisis should not the church be characterized by unity and being drawn toward community to withstand against this onslaught? See Eph. 4:3-6, 15-16; Col. 3:19. It appears that this would be the case for those who are seeking to be like a wise virgin. It would be encouraging to have the benefit of the church community united by a common purpose as we see the juggernaut rising (Rev. 13:4).

    Wow!!! Much insight and revelation JD and Susannah Thank you so much loveeeeeee's. Both of you have given so much in countless hours/time and research for us out here to understand more of what the enemy is up too.

    We know the Lord is coming back very soon and in saying this, we still need to keep vigilant and up-to-date on what is going on in the world today.

    I agree with Nicenter on this one.

    I pray the Lord bless you and keep you and your families safe.

  21. Showing the seriousness of the situation, Susanna has posted a set of links to states that have passed laws prohibiting the forced microchipping of citizens in their states. Through Find go to 8:55 in the thread Traceability in a Sustainable World.

  23. Another question.....currently I thought RFID chips could only be read from several feet to maybe 10 feet away. Other than our clothes and items we carry with us, how are the chips going to be read if they are say at our home?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Agie95,

    This is where the massive calls for Smart Grids and Smart Homes comes into play. Sensors and readers will be built into newer appliances such as refrigerators, just as smart meters and thermostats are being pushed for powering your home. It's not as difficult to understand when you see the who in the private sector is working with GS1 and other groups to implement RFID infrastructures.

  25. nicenter,

    I honestly can't answer this question. My hope is to simply educate on the agenda so that the body can discern. The church needs to be aware of what Sustainable Development is at its core. They need to know the principles at work and understand that these are not christian principles. What willingly accepting a system based on this mode of thought means. Beyond that it is up to the reader to make his own choices.

  26. AussieGirl,

    Thanks, I hope I can meet the expectations set by all of you! lol

  27. JD,

    You cannot possibly "meet the expectations set by all". Just keep on being faithful to God and let the chips fall where they may.

    I'm sure you did not expect smooth sailing on this endeavor. Dealing with contrary opinions, different perspectives, roadblocks, deception, and even open hostility, are all part of the deal when one decides to go "public".

  28. omots,

    You are correct in your assertion. I have expected to deal with all of the above. I know I will never meet every ones expectations, the comment was intended more tongue in cheek. I do hope that I am able to inform some and show where this system is headed and what the principles are that it stands on.

  30. URGENT!!! URGENT!!! PRAYER NEEDED BY ALL NOW!!!

    I am sure many of you are aware of Keith Thompson otherwise known as Keith Truth.

    The Lord has been and is mightily working in this man's life and this man's work is vitally important and informative in waking people up to what is happening at present. He has released several very powerful documentaries etc, and is a well known and respected watchman.

    This is his urgent comment I have just found on his youtube account:


    '***Announcement*** I recieved a very disturbing letter yesterday which appears to be a vague death threat demanding that I stop my work or else I will "fall in a ditch." Please pray for me. Lord bless.'

    http://www.youtube.com/user/KeithTruth

    We must take what he says here seriously, he is a very dry and sober person, not easily given to outbursts of this kind, and over the few years I have followed him, I have indeed never known it of him.

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PRAY FOR HIS WELL-BEING. THIS IS VERY SERIOUS!

    God bless,

    Rob in London.

  31. Dear JD,

    Please forgive me for this being my first post to your blog here. I know that you follow Keith and that you have much reguard for him too. I really do not mean in anyway to disrespect you or to belittle your work or person, please, please forgive me if it feels like that, I am very sorry, but It is just because I am very worried about Keith.

    You know that I greatly admire all that you have done and are doing here, and I am certainly not trying to undermine that. I am convinced that the Lord has been truly guiding you in this, given the extraordinary magnitude and intricacy of the material which you have uncovered, and that is judging by the tiny fraction I have seen so far. I can be a load and arrogant man sometimes. I am sorry for that. I, however, always have found you to be a gentle and humble person and I respect both you and Susanna greatly. Please do not forget that.

    God bless you,

    Once again, please forgive my audacity but please pray for Keith.

    Thank you.

    Your brother in Jesus Christ,

    No apologies neccesary. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I will pray for Keith. We must however take our lesson from this latest turn of events. People will hate us for what we are doing, not just those we are exposing, but even those who we are trying to reach.

  34. President Obama will hold a Health Care Summit with members of Congress to relaunch the process of reform. The summit will take place Thursday February 25, 2010 at 10 am Eastern. One can watch the summit live on C-SPAN3 or on the internet at www.whitehouse.gov/live.

    This is a very important summit. If my suspicions are correct the changes that will be made from the old bills will simply incorporate changes to the tax structures and insurance regulation, while all of the data gathering aspects will remain.

  35. JD, Thanks for responding to my post. I had posted this previously, but thought you might not have seen it. I think this information here illustrates how far along this data collection business is, where now they are getting the average Joe into the act of data collection because he is desperate for money due to the negative effects of globalization, i.e., having lost his job due to outsourcing overseas, etc. For example, see here:

  36. Eric,

    Thanks for passing this along. However average Joe has been a willing participant in the data mining field for some time. I will cover some of this as I get into some of the aspects of social media and their ties to the intelligence community. They have successfully changed what the publics perception of privacy is, and in doing such have opened the flood gates for further encroachments.

  37. Way to go JD.
    I finally got around to reading some of this, and
    I intend to read all of it.
    It's mind boggling the lengths that people will
    go in order to try to negate the Creator God
    and His Word in this world.
    It's been said before, but, this is a modern day
    Tower of Babel and results will be similar, eventually.
    _It will be a massive project which will be left
    unfinished, collecting cobwebs and standing as
    a testiment to the sinful foolishnessof mankind.

    "Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a
    vain thing?"

    God bless you JD, and Susanna

  40. From the EU spot I accidentally posted to one of your older threads:

    "The European Union and Sustainable Development
    Since the Treaty of Amsterdam, sustainable development is legally enshrined among the fundamental objectives of European integration as laid down in Article 2 of the EC Treaty. In 2001, this objective became the focus of political attention at the highest level. The European Council agreed on a ‘European Union Strategy for Sustainable Development’ and also referred to sustainable development in its Laeken Declaration on the future of the EU, among the values defining the identity and role of the EU in the world.

    Five years later, the EU Sustainable Development Strategy is undergoing a review process culminating at the June 2006 European Council. How has the European Union addressed the issue of sustainable development and what is the place and function of this relatively recent objective in the political discourse of European integration? Beyond discourse, has the Sustainable Development Strategy had any real impact on policy-making processes and on the substantive content of EU policies? What is its relationship with other strategic orientations of EU policy, such as those of the Lisbon Strategy focusing on growth, jobs and competitiveness? Do the EU’s external policies effectively contribute to ‘the sustainable development of the Earth’, as the Constitutional Treaty solemnly proclaims? Have Member States, industry and civil society taken new action to promote sustainability in response to the Sustainable Development Strategy? Is sustainable development a truly innovative policy paradigm which will revolutionize the way Europe approaches economic, social and environmental issues, or is it little more than a fashionable but vacuous political buzzword?

    These are some of the questions addressed by the contributors to this volume, who bring a diversity of perspectives to bear on both the internal and external dimensions of the EU’s ambiguous relationship with sustainable development. The diversity of views reflected in this book testifies to the politically sensitive, essentially contested nature of the concept. But it cannot be denied that sustainable development policies have become institutionalized in the EU and its Member States and, as such, constitute an important new subject of inquiry and debate for all those interested in the fate of the European project."
