CELL PHONE TECHNOLOGY:
YOU ARE BEING TRACKED, AND
MOST OF YOU HAVE NO IDEA
ABOUT WHAT'S HAPPENING

"First thing when I wake up and
Right before I close my eyes at night
I think, sense, feel man like
I'm under some kind of microscope.
Satellites over my head, transmitters in my dollas
Hawkin', watchin', scopin' to see what I'm doin'
Where I be, who I see, how and where and with whom I make my money.
What is this?
Excuse me Miss.
May I have your phone number and your social security?
Who me? When all I came to do is buy my double or triple A batteries?
- Jill Scott, "Watchin Me"
you use a cell phone? Is the actual phone you're using less than two
years old. If so, then the government knows EXACTLY where
you are at any given time of the night or day - whether your phone is
on or off, and whether you are actually talking to someone or not! That's
just one of the startling conclusions in Christian Parenti's new book,
The Soft Cage: Surveillance in America. Parenti writes,
"More than 111 million Americans now carry mobile phones, each
of which creates a rough electronic account of the user's location
in time and space. Cell phones communicate with networks of transmission
points that monitor and note a phone's location ... These records,
stored by phone companies, can be subpoenaed when needed ...
"AND NOW, IN THE AGE OF TERROR AND PERMANENT EMERGENCY, THE
FEDERAL GOVERNMENT HAS ORDERED WIRELESS CARRIERS TO CREATE
SYSTEMS FOR TRACKING MOBILE PHONES IN REAL TIME. AS
A RESULT, THE LATEST WIRELESS COMMUNICATION DEVICES CONTAIN
BUILT-IN GLOBAL POSITIONING SYSTEM (GPS) CHIPS THAT TRANSMIT THE GADGET'S
GEOGRAPHIC COORDINATES TO TWENTY-FOUR PENTAGON-MAINTAINED SATELLITES
- TRACKING USERS AS THEY MOVE ... Thus, a convenience, an Information
Age accessory, becomes an electronic tag." [NOTE:
You need to understand here that the GPS microchip in your cell phone
transmits information to overhead satellites whether you have the
phone turned on or off and / or whether you are actually using it
WHY WORRY? - FIRE FROM THE SKY
"Why worry that Sprint has buried deep in its guts the coordinates
of your EXACT location? For most people the new surveillance
has no immediate material impact. So let's cut to an extreme situation,
a dystopic somewhere else, and consider the question again.
"In the occupied territories of the West Bank (and Gaza) cell
phones have already become critical components in the war between
Israelis and Palestinians. During the first year of the Al Aqsa
Infifada, the Israeli Defense Forces assassinated at least six
Palestinian militants with rockets or helicopter gunships by first
locating the target's cell phone and then directing fire at the coordinates
of the phone. In those days most Palestinian mobile phones were jacked
into Israel's politically suspect Cellcom network, headed by a former
Shin Bet commander, Yakov Perry. After the link between phones and
fire from the sky became clear, Palestinians started boycotting the
Israeli cellular system and set up Jawwal, a Palestinian/Swedish telecom
"From this perspective (i.e., that you can be assassinated by
your political enemies by simply using your cell phone), routine surveillance
takes on a new meaning. With a little imagination one can see that
no matter how mundane, SURVEILLANCE IS ALWAYS TIED UP WITH QUESTIONS
OF POWER AND POLITICAL STRUGGLE." [In other words,
surveillance ALWAYS becomes a tool of political suppression,
no matter how it is initially justified to the public - whether as
a matter of medical, credit, or business convenience, or as a routine
[NOTE: the killing of Palestinian terrorists continues
using "fire from the sky," which lends one to believe that
the Israelis have figured out a way around the Palestinian/Swedish technology
- using American-made, state-of-the-art, NSA security technology.]
TRANSITIONING FROM CELL
PHONES TO HUMAN IMPLANTS
The next step, of course, is to implant these chips (the same kind
of chips used in cell phones) in human beings - AND THAT'S PRECISELY
WHAT APPLIED DIGITAL SOLUTIONS INC. OF DELRAY BEACH, FLORIDA IS PLANNING
TO DO WITH ITS NEW VERICHIP SYSTEM. The VeriChip is a microchip
that can be implanted under the skin that will permit the government
to track those who have had the chip implanted in them much in the same
fashion that cell phone users can be tracked today (see above). Think
about that! - if you have such a device implanted in you and it has
been linked up to a GPS tracking system, there will be no place for
you to hide. The government will ALWAYS know where you
are - IN REAL TIME - anywhere on earth.
And this is not something far off in the future. The VeriChip is in
use today. For example, Applied Digital Solutions is marketing the chip
to the medical community as a means to give doctors instant access to
a patient's medical records. The tiny electronic capsule, the first
such device to receive Food and Drug Administration approval, transmits
a unique code to a special scanner that allows doctors to confirm a
patient's identity and obtain detailed medical information from an accompanying
database. It's being marketed as a way to improve care and avoid errors
by ensuring doctors know whom they are treating and their personal health
SCANNING PEOPLE LIKE CANS IN A GROCERY STORE
According to Rob Stein of the Washington Post, doctors would
scan patients like cans at a grocery store. Instead of the price, the
patient's medical record would pop up on a computer screen. Emergency
room doctors could scan unconscious car accident victims to check their
blood type and medications, and make sure they have no drug allergies.
Surgeons could scan patients in the operating room to guard against
cutting into the wrong person. Chips could be implanted in Alzheimer's
patients in case they get lost.
The VeriChip technology was originally developed to track livestock
and has been implanted in millions of cats and dogs to identify lost
or stolen pets. But the technology is rapidly transitioning from a means
to track animals to one that aims at tracking human beings. For example,
Mexico's Attorney General announced in July that he had had one of the
devices injected into his arm and those of about 160 of his lieutenants
to control access to high-security offices. In bars in Amsterdam (the
Netherlands) and Barcelona (Spain) patrons can have the devices implanted
to allow them to enter exclusive areas of the club.
THE ARMY IS CONSIDERING IMPLANTING
THESE CHIPS IN ALL THEIR SOLDIERS
The army is considering implanting the chips in soldiers as "electronic
dog tags," and police forces are exploring the possibility of creating
"smart guns" with built-in scanners that ensure they can be
fired only by someone with a corresponding implant in their arms. Finally,
credit card companies are considering the possibility of using the implanted
chips to verify a customer's identity before accepting a credit card.
VeriChip CEO Scott Silverman says,
"That same scanner in a WalMart that is used to bar code your
goods can be used to identify you when you present your credit card
to make sure someone hasn't stolen it and your identity."
THE MOST INTERESTING USE OF THE VERICHIP
Ultimately, of course, the most "interesting" use of the
VeriChip is to use it in conjunction with GPS technology. Indeed, according
to Silverman, the company has already developed a device that would
allow GPS satellites to pinpoint a chip's location, but he says that
he has no immediate plans to market the VeriChip in this fashion.
Nonetheless, Marc Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy
Information Center in Washington warns that the day is not long off
when people will be FORCED to get the implants. Richard
Smith, an Internet security and privacy consultant in Boston, concurs;
"Once we start carrying these tags, it makes a perfect way ...
for the government to keep track of us."
Katherine Albrecht, another technology expert, warns that the technology
is out there - AND IT'S GOING TO BE USED.
"It would obviously be possible to inject one of these into
everyone. In the post-9/11 world, we are already racing down the path
to TOTAL SURVEILLANCE."
DON'T BE NAIVE ABOUT ALL THIS
Think about that! - a government that has the power to unleash "fire
from the sky" and incinerate its enemies suddenly and without any
warning - or at the very least, has the power to track its political
opponents and "disappear" them into the bowels of a SuperMax
prison - locking them up ALONE in a three foot by six
foot prison cell without legal recourse, without their families ever
knowing what happened to them, and TOTALLY without hope.
THIS IS WHAT'S COMING! AND IT IS COMING SOON, VERY SOON NOW! MUCH
SOONER THAN YOU THINK! Indeed, there is evidence that the government
has already used this technology against its political opponents. [More
about this in upcoming articles.]
Some Christians, of course, say they're not frightened by all this
- to which I would retort, They simply have no idea what they are talking
Yes, it's true that those who are truly led by the Spirit will be able
to stand in the face of all this; but - sadly - most of those who make
blasť statements like this have NOT been walking in the
spirit, and they say they are not frightened because - in fact - they
don't really believe that such things can happen to them - and more
to the point, they are too comfortably ensconced in the midst of Babylon
to seriously consider doing anything meaningful about their precarious
situation. It's IDIOTIC for such people to think that
suddenly they will be possessed by the necessary courage to endure what
they will be without warning confronted with. Spiritual courage does
not develop in a person over night.
Listen, dear brothers and sisters in the Lord. YOU need
to take prophecy seriously. That's what the Bible says! The Scriptures
warn us that we should not bury our heads in the sand and think that
everything will be okay. The Bible says that we should not allow such
things to -
"... overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light,
and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be
sober." (I Thess. 5:4-6)
More next time!
Until then, God bless you,
We need your help to spread the word concerning Antipas Ministries and the
eschatological viewpoint it represents; WE NEED YOUR
HELP BECAUSE WE DO NOT "LINK" WITH OTHER SO-CALLED "CHRISTIAN"
WEBSITES which are, for the most part, "in the tank"
insofar as their loyalty to the United States is concerned
- a loyalty that has made them partners in the BLOODY
trail the American military has left in its TERROR-RIDDEN
rampage throughout the world, as well as making them partners
in the abject poverty that American corporations have
imposed on the peoples and nations the American military
machine has ravaged - A BLOODY, TERROR-RIDDEN RAMPAGE
THAT HAS TO A LARGE DEGREE BEEN CARRIED OUT IN THE NAME
OF THE "PRINCE OF PEACE." [Please see our articles,
