Mark of the Beast: It’s Now Mandatory to Microchip Your Dog in the United Kingdom; Are Humans Next?

Mark of the Beast: It’s Now Mandatory to Microchip Your Dog in the United Kingdom; Are Humans Next?
Joe Wright
Propaganda! Are humans next?

If it’s such good idea, why must it be mandatory? The government in the United Kingdom has just claimed further ownership of your dog.
In a new law, the Crown has granted her subjects the privilege to own a dog but only if the beast is microchipped. That’s right,  microchipping dogs is now mandatory throughout the United Kingdom.
It began as a voluntary option for monitoring your own pet, but now, dog owners in the U.K. have a just a few weeks to comply; if local authorities catch dogs without a microchip, owners face expensive fines.

BBC reports “Dog owners who have not had their pets microchipped could face a fine of up to £500, as a new law comes into force. All dogs in England, Scotland and Wales are now legally required to have been chipped by the time they are eight weeks old.”
The reason given for the mandate is to “tackle reckless ownership and help save councils vast sums of taxpayers’ cash looking after strays,” according to Simon Blackburn, of the Local Government Association, as quoted by the BBC.
Forcing a mandatory microchip into a sentient being to save money on governing? This is a joke, right? Nope.
“Microchipping our dogs will not only reunite people with their lost or stolen pets, but also help to tackle the growing problem of strays roaming the streets and relieve the burden placed on animal charities and local authorities,” Animal Welfare Minister George Eustice said, hoping to appeal to dog lovers.
Owning a domestic dog starts with buying a license from the authoritarians. Then mandatory vaccines and forced sterilization are required in some areas. Leashes and cages are also compulsory in many places. Now they demand a microchip!
It seems like the same path currently being used to domesticate humans. After they mandate everyone get vaccinated, how long before they force humans to get microchipped to help governments and taxpayers save money on security?

Chip, Implanted in Brain, Helps Paralyzed Man Regain Control of Hand

Five years ago, a college freshman named Ian Burkhart dived into a wave at a beach off the Outer Banks in North Carolina and, in a freakish accident, broke his neck on the sandy floor, permanently losing the feeling in his hands and legs.
On Wednesday, doctors reported that Mr. Burkhart, 24, had regained control over his right hand and fingers, using technology that transmits his thoughts directly to his hand muscles and bypasses his spinal injury. The doctors’ study, published by the journal Nature, is the first account of limb reanimation, as it is known, in a person with quadriplegia.
Doctors implanted a chip in Mr. Burkhart’s brain two years ago. Seated in a lab with the implant connected through a computer to a sleeve on his arm, he was able to learn by repetition and arduous practice to focus his thoughts to make his hand pour from a bottle, and to pick up a straw and stir. He was even able to play a guitar video game.
“It’s crazy because I had lost sensation in my hands, and I had to watch my hand to know whether I was squeezing or extending the fingers,” Mr. Burkhart, a business student who lives in Dublin, Ohio, said in an interview. His injury had left him paralyzed from the chest down; he still has some movement in his shoulders and biceps.
The new technology is not a cure for paralysis. Mr. Burkhart could use his hand only when connected to computers in the lab, and the researchers said there was much work to do before the system could provide significant mobile independence.
But the field of neural engineering is advancing quickly. Using brain implants, scientists can decode brain signals and match them to specific movements. Previously, people have learned to guide a cursor on a screen with their thoughts, monkeys have learned to skillfully use a robotic arm through neural signals and scientists have taught monkeys who were partly paralyzed to use an arm with a bypass system. This new study demonstrates that the bypass approach can restore critical skills to limbs no longer directly connected to the brain.
“It’s quite impressive what they’ve shown, this sequence of movements to pick up and pour something and pick up a stirrer — it’s an advance toward a goal we all have, to provide as much independence to these patients as possible,” said Rajesh Rao, the director of the Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering at the University of Washington.

After his injury, Mr. Burkhart underwent rehabilitation for months in Atlanta before continuing his care at Ohio State University, near his home. There, he told doctors that he would be willing to participate in experimental treatments.

“I was in the right place at the right time,” Mr. Burkhart said. “But it did mean I had to have brain surgery — surgery that I didn’t need.”

Some of his family members were against it. Adding the risks of surgery to what Mr. Burkhart had already been through was too much, given the uncertain payoff, they argued.
“There’s the recovery time, the putting the chip in, taking it out — and in the long run it doesn’t benefit Ian one iota,” said Doug Burkhart, his father. “He was doing it for the general good, to move the science along.”
Ian said he had none of those concerns. “I knew I was going to be taken care of, and something’s going to come along to help people like me eventually — so why not try.”
His father came around after consulting a high school friend who is a neurosurgeon. “Ian reminds me of my dad,” he said, “He’s one of those people, he’s driven, he’s decisive, once he makes a decision, he sees it through and doesn’t look back. He was going to do what he wanted to do.”
So in 2014, a surgical team at Ohio State operated. They used brain imaging to isolate the part of Mr. Burkhart’s brain that controls hand movements. The area is in what is known as the motor cortex, on the left side of his brain and just above the ear. During the surgery, the team did extensive testing on the exposed brain tissue to further narrow down the location.
“We spent an hour and half working to find the exact location,” said Dr. Ali Rezai, the surgeon and director of Ohio State’s Center for Neuromodulation. Dr. Rezai implanted a chip the size of an eraser head in the area. The chip holds 96 filament-like “microelectrodes” that record the firing of individual neurons.
After Mr. Burkhart healed from the surgery, the training began: multiple sessions in the lab each week, trying hand movements. The firing patterns were picked up by the chip and ran through a cable that was fixed to a port on the back of his skull and connected to a computer.
Scientists at Battelle Memorial Institute, a nonprofit organization in Columbus, Ohio, that develops medical devices, among other instruments, designed software to decode those firing patterns. And that code had to be recalibrated almost every session, said Herbert Bresler, a senior research leader at Battelle.
“The signal changes constantly as learning happens, and we had to adjust to those changes,” Dr. Bresler said. “The machine learned as Ian Burkhart learned.”
Dr. Bresler is the interim chief on the continuing project; the previous principal investigator, Chad Bouton, who has changed jobs, was the lead author. His co-authors include Dr. Rezai and a dozen others at Ohio State and Battelle.
Mr. Burkhart said the training was exhausting. An avatar on a computer screen cued him to try different types of movement. “I had to really, really concentrate, just to do these things I did without thinking before,” he said. “But it was like a sport; you work and work and it gradually gets easier.”
After several months, Mr. Burkhart no longer needed the avatar to imitate. “Watching him close his hand for the first time — I mean, it was a surreal moment,” Dr. Rezai said. “We all just looked at each other and thought, ‘O.K., the work is just starting.’”
After a year of training, Mr. Burkhart was able to pick up a bottle and pour the contents into a jar, and to pick up a straw and stir. The doctors, though delighted, said that more advances would be necessary to make the bypass system practical, affordable and less invasive, most likely through wireless technology. But the improvement was significant enough, at least in the lab, that rehabilitation specialists could reclassify Mr. Burkhart’s disability from a severe C5 function to a less severe C7 designation.
For now, the funding for the project, which includes money from Ohio State, Battelle and private donors, is set to run out this year — and with it, Mr. Burkhart’s experience of restored movement.
“That’s going to be difficult, because I’ve enjoyed it so much,” Mr. Burkhart said. “If I could take the thing home, it would give me so much more independence. Now, I’ve got to rely on someone else for so many things, like getting dressed, brushing my teeth — all that. I just want other people to hear about this and know that there’s hope. Something will come around that makes living with this injury better.”


Japan to use fingerprinting instead of credit cards

Japan is introducing a system which could replace both cash and credit cards. There are hopes the move will attract more tourists to the country, while easing payment and dispensing with the need for cards or cash. Tests are starting this summer. The system will calculate how much money a customer has based on a fingerprint. Japan hopes to have it up-and-running in time for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, according to the Yomiuri Shimbun.
The idea itself is not new – a version already exists at a bank and a theme park in Nagasaki Prefecture. Customers there can make payments at over 30 restaurants and businesses. What’s so convenient about it is you only have to go through one scan when arriving to Japan – and you’re good to go (assuming you have money – this is Japan, after all). The customer places two fingers on a scanner to complete payment. READ MORE 

Financial blogger says emerging cashless society linked to Bible prophecy

Financial blogger David Haggith thinks the global central banks push toward a cashless society is linked to warnings in Bible prophecy against taking the Mark of the Beast in the end times. Haggith’s statements were made during an interview with Rick Wiles of TRUNEWS on Tuesday, when asked which direction he saw the global central banks — and emerging super powers — taking the world’s economy in 2016 and 2017. Rick Wiles proposed during the interview that there are currently three avenues being laid forth by the elite:
  • The West crashes and the East rises up, becoming the dominant player in the world.
  • Both sides manage a reset of the global economic system, West gives up prestige in exchange for that concession, while the East assumes the position as a new world superpower and financial center.
  • World War 3. FULL REPORT
Globalist ban on $100 bill next step to cashless society
Harvard economist Larry Summers says “it’s time to go after big money,” and he wants to start by banning the $100 bill. But critics say he and other globalist elites may have an ulterior motive for such a move.
The former U.S. Treasury secretary and chief economist of the World Bank recently penned an op-ed in the Washington Post calling for removing the 500 euro and $100 bills from circulation.
“He’s been writing forcefully about that for the past six months,” said Patrick Wood, an economist and expert on the Trilateral Commission, technocracy and global governance.
Summers is a member of the elitist Trilateral Commission, co-founded in 1973 by David Rockefeller and Zbigniew Brzezinski, and has operated at the highest echelons of global finance.
The argument being parlayed by global elites is that high-denomination bills are often used by crime syndicates and terrorist cells.

Summers argues, “[I]n certain circles, the 500 euro note is known as the ‘Bin Laden,'” and this is why it should no longer be printed.
“A moratorium on printing new high denomination notes would make the world a better place. In terms of unilateral steps, the most important actor by far is the European Union. The €500 is almost six times as valuable as the $100,” writes Summers.
But Wood, an Arizona-based economist, says eliminating the $100 bill has little to do with fighting terrorism or crime and everything to do with continuing to chip away at the availability of cash.
“There’s a big portion of society that’s not included in the banking system. They just don’t have bank accounts. They operate on cash, and that’s a large percentage of the developing world, and even in America. A lot of people on welfare, they go around the first of every month cashing checks. They don’t have accounts, and apparently that’s something that bugs the global elite,” said Wood, author of “Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation.”
“He’s a Trilateral guy, and it really bugs them that anybody is still living outside the system,” he said.
JP Morgan Chase announced this week it would start limiting the amount of cash a non-customer can withdraw from its ATM machines to $1,000.
The Wall Street Journal reported:
“The bank run by Chairman and Chief Executive Jamie Dimon said there doesn’t appear to be fraud involved. But in part due to heightened regulatory scrutiny, banks are paying more attention to large cash transfers that could be a sign of money laundering or other types of shady activity.”
Wood said the cashless society has long been an item on the checklist of global bankers. It’s also a key element of the burgeoning global technocracy that is tightening its grip on the world.
“Technocracy” is a term more Americans should familiarize themselves with, he said. That’s because it is technocracy – not communism or fascism – that the elites envision as their data-driven lever of control over the human race.
Consumers who operate with cash do not leave behind a digital trail and are thus not as transparent in where they go and what they are doing.
The original definition of technocracy was put forth by the Technocrat magazine in 1938. While much has changed since the original technocracy movement of the 1930s, the essence of the definition remains intact, Wood said. What has changed is the level of technology at the disposal of the world bankers and government technocrats.
“How they described it back then, in 1938, was that technocracy is the science of social engineering, or the science behind the entire system of goods and services as delivered to the entire population. If that’s the mindset of technocracy, that they have to ‘leave no one behind,’ then I can see where that comes from and where it’s leading.
“One thing is certainly true: You can’t exclude someone without first giving them the opportunity to be included.”
And Summers is not the only globalist panning the $100 bill.
Peter Sands, the former head of Standard Chartered Bank and now senior fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School, published a paper stating that eliminating high-value notes that are “rarely used” would help deter tax evasion, financial crime, terrorism financing and corruption, CNBC reported.
Most of the benefits of being included in the cashless system will be on the monetary side.
“If they include that in the system, that bank account will become a point of control over you, because without it you will not be able to buy or sell,” Wood said. “So if they say you are not worthy to buy or sell in our society and there’s no other mechanism, you are going to be greatly disadvantaged.”
“The 1000 and the 500 are already toast; they’re history,” Wood said.
“If they remove the $100 bill, that’s a big blow. How many $10 or $20 bills would it take if you’ve got $10,000 in your house? It would be almost impossible; you just wouldn’t do it. So I think taking out of the $100 bill would just about kill cash.”
Summers wrote, “Such an agreement would be as significant as anything else the G7 or G20 has done in years.”

Prepare to be fingerprinted on future European vacations

European countries are looking to introduce a new automated border control system that will log people's photos and fingerprints when they visit for business or leisure.

The proposal is part of a push by European countries to fight terrorism and enhance security.
The system is expected to come into effect by 2020, taking four fingerprints and a facial image from visitors who do not hold a passport issued by a European Union country.
The data will be stored in a centralized system for five years.
The technology will be implemented by members of the Schengen area, which includes most EU countries, as well as Iceland, Lichtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
The U.K. will not participate but already collects biometric data in some cases.
The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has a similar fingerprinting system in place for foreign visitors that's designed to check for suspected terrorists, criminals and immigration violators.
The U.S. agency said its biometric system has "helped stop thousands of people who were ineligible to enter the United States."
Related: Borders could cost Europe $20 billion a year
The European Commission, which published the proposal on Wednesday, said the new system was "not a direct response to the refugee crisis, although it contributes to the overall strengthening of our border management."
About 1.2 million people applied for asylum in the EU last year, double the number in 2014, and more than half of them came from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq.
Before anything can move ahead, the proposal will need to win the support of EU member states, and the approval of the European Parliament, which reviews EU laws.
The system is expected to cost about 480 million euros ($546 million).

Survey says biometrics in banking on verge of become mainstream

According to a recent Mobey Forum survey, the use of biometrics in banking and payment systems is on the verge of becoming mainstream. The survey notes that major technological advances and economies of scale have enabled biometrics to gain strong momentum as a secure authentication factor to verify a customer’s identity in the areas of mobile banking and payment. The report argues that over the last two decades, the technology has steadily proven its credibility in this market, attracting the strong interest of a number of global business players.
The report states: “The vast majority of banks intend to implement biometrics in the relatively near future, just as the number of handset manufacturers planning to integrate biometric capabilities into their devices rises.” The report also notes that current market forecasts are extremely optimistic, projecting that by 2017, there will be over one billion users accessing banking services through biometric systems.
