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

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.

    Ok, we are aware of the fingerprinting for biometric purposes, but the picture is misleading. They are not implanting anything just yet. In the meantime, it would be better to depend on these agencies as less as we can. God bless ~

  2. Lori says:

    This is sick an God will get those satanic people..

  3. Jody says:

    I would object strenuously to requiring people on food stamps to have a chip implanted, but fingerprints are not objectionable to me at all! The fact that many refuse to be fingerprinted tells me they have been cheating the system, and don’t want to be caught. It’s about time the gov’t. had some way to track the cheaters, and protect the taxpayers’ money.

    • D says:

      You are complaining about tax payers money being squandered on food stamps. The amount the American Govt spend daily on the ‘WAR ON TERROR’ would feed everyone for months

  4. Dave Powers says:

    All this to catch 1.3% of the people? Is this even break even cost effective wise?

  5. Arizona says:

    HEY,Look how stupid I’am ,I’am and american and IT’s OK with me if they force all the poor people to take the mark of the BEAST FIRST,because in MY SCRAMBLED BRAINS I don’t think the day will come when they get around to ME.hahaha, LOOK ALL YOU BRAIN DEAD MORONS,THIS AIN’T ABOUT MONEY, this is about CHIPING THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD,read your bible, if your able to, I know most americans have been dumbed down so much,talking to them is a waste of time.

  6. Arizona says:

    The american people spend enough money on bombs and war to feed,cloth,and house every person on the planet,BEING RIPPED off by the government is OK. BUT you let on person who’s poor get one dime in food stamps more than a bunch of cheap whores think they should and there ready to put in the MARK OF THE BEAST ON EVERYONE…….the government sold your ass down the river,and yet your still to asleep to look up,THE LORD has been warning you for years to stop trying to destroy the poor of the world and yet,YOU still have NOT stopped….I guest the warning of total destruction to AMERICA will HAPPEN. THE LORD SAID “IF YOU DON’T STOP, I WILL STOP YOU” and I will never let your evil nation rise again,THANKS MORONS………

  7. God or no God, prophecy or no prophecy, chipping is just wrong, PERIOD! There are already too many technologies that are just as effective, if we would just use them. Fingerprint readers are so cheap and many companies already use them for their employees to clock in and out. Also facial recognition as well. If a store can shell out $10,000 for the Food Stamp program & equipment, then he can afford $39 or $49 bucks for a fingerprint reader. Use some common sense and get with the program.

  8. Denise says:

    It s terrible and a sicko way to ever go,only a Nancy Polanski would think this up.she is really a ugly soul.God help her and her kind.

  9. Karen says:

    The “chipping” is not just to catch cheaters (although that would be nice!). Once they put RFID chips in these cards and make it illegal for people to grow their own food (which will implemented through Agenda 21), people will HAVE to depend on the gov’t, and this will be THEIR way of telling us what we can and can’t eat, and how much. It’s all about CONTROL people!

  10. I work with the poverty population, and I can tell you there IS rampant abuse of food stamps. Many clients use a little of the debit card to buy food, then trade the cards with balances on them to others for cigarettes, booze, drugs, etc. Usually at 50% face value – for example, a food-stamp debit card has $50 left on it, so they trade it for $25 cash, a carton of smokes, etc.

  11. The rich,the elite,the bankers,the financiers,the corporations,the politicians have been stealing,deceiving the people for a very long time and most know this but yet the majority still go to vote,buy the products and use the private banks and do as they are told,and yet the poor who have nothing try to steal extra bits of food are slammed as being nothing more than a burden on the tax payer?
    Governments of the world are the true burden on the tax payer by squandering on endless illegal wars,using tax payers money to pay the private banks.
    Chipping people is nothing to do with making sure that food stamps are not being fraudulently used that is an excuse for bringing them in to society,the real purpose whether you want to believe it or not is for the control of the people,eventually money will cease to exist and it will all be credit on your chip,piss the government off by protesting then you will be switched off unable to buy anything.
    Ultimate control of the people.
    Time to wake up!!!

  12. Thanks for finally talking about >Use of RFID Tracking Technology To Be Mandatory In US Food Stamp Program <Loved it!

  13. Usually I do not read article on blogs, however I wish to say that this write-up very compelled me to try and do it! Your writing taste has been amazed me. Thanks, very great article.

  14. bina213 says:

    it says on there the chip is to stop people from selling there food stamps. there are ways around that to. you can have the person write you out a list of what to get for them. you go and buy there stuff. and when you get back with there stuff thay give you the money same thing as selling your food stamps or thay can take that person to the store with them have them pick what thay want. then you scan your hand. thay give you the money. theres ways for everything. that chip is just for more gov control. and it the mark of the best

  15. micheal says:

    its not control its deceit. its the what and why u use your hands and mind for.
