In May of 2016, we tried to warn people that, “If this administration gets their way, you and your child will be microchipped.”
The Overton window, also known as the window of discourse, is the range of ideas the public will accept. It is used by media pundits, and is clearly being applied here.
H. R. 4919 would also require the attorney general to consult with the secretary of health and human services and other health organizations to come up with best practices for the tracking devices. Cited as the “Kevin and Avonte’s Law of 2016”, this bill is ambiguous and gets into some serious gray areas.
It will open a open a “pandora’s box” of invasive government surveillance.

“Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) spoke on the House Floor against H.R. 4919, which would allow the federal government to implement tracking chips into those with autism and developmental disabilities. He noted, “I see where this goes. We will have a federal tracking program… The more I read this bill [H.R. 4919], the more I see a program George Orwell would be afraid of.”
“While this initiative may have noble intentions, ‘small and temporary’ programs in the name of safety and security often evolve into permanent and enlarged bureaucracies that infringe on the American people’s freedoms. That is exactly what we have here. A safety problem exists for people with Alzheimer’s, autism and other mental health issues, so the fix, we are told, is to have the Department of Justice, start a tracking program so we can use some device or method to track these individuals 24/7, Gohmert said in a floor speech opposing the bill.
At the first sign of suspicious behavior, or troubling social media profile, or a misunderstanding during an encounter, police and medical personnel – among others – will have the authority to declare someone ‘mentally disabled’ (or incapacitated, or temporarily insane, or unsound of mind, or whatever label is handy) just because they express discontent, anger or outage at the state of the world and political affairs. “Fake news” journalists can be shut down, and “conspiracy minded” individuals controlled… and of course, it will be abused. The tactics used against parents by CPS will be forged together with the creepy total surveillance of the fusion centers, etc. Potentially a very nasty police state, Whitney Webb from the True Activist reports.
