National Animal Identification System, (NAIS) that thousands of livestock producers have opposed for close to a half dozen years, is still being demanded by USDA, and USDA branches. Like a creeping fungal spore it moves on with unrestrained funding. Why does this numbering plot have a life without death? No economic facts, no logic, no legal barrier stops this horrid scheme as it moves with perverted "cooperative agreements" to number all farm livestock and farm properties.
Nearly 2000 years ago it was written in the Holy Bible that in the last years of history a numbering system would be used so that no person could buy or sell without an enforced number. Real ID and NAIS perfectly fit the prophecy of Revelation 13. It is a battle of the unjust against the just. Some would say it is only a coincidence, yet others are certain a massive plan is in play to number all livestock and then number all people. A federal plan to control people like herds of cattle moving through the check out counter of life.
It is easy to oppose NAIS on purely non-Biblical reasons, but equally easy to see the handwriting on the wall. Every livestock owner should oppose NAIS. Every Christian should oppose NAIS. Every human who consumes food should oppose NAIS. Every USDA employee should oppose NAIS. Every veterinarian, every President, every Congressman and every Senator should oppose NAIS.

Hopefully, that fired you up. Now go here to make your comment about the new numbering system. The cutoff for comments is in March. There are some incredible comments, as well as some questions that USDA must answer before they can go forward. Well, that's the law anyway. We know USDA will do what they want, skew the results they way they want, all that. If there ever was an unlawful agency, USDA is it.
But before you go, order a copy of my book, First They Came for the Cows: An Activist's Story. Look at the right sidebar and click through the Amazon link. This novel is a great way to help people understand what NAIS means for ordinary people.

First, I watched Freedom to Fascism last night. It was extremely depressing. Now I understand for sure that this country is doomed to serfdoom unless the people rise up. The premise of Freedom to Fascism is that Aaron Russo, a Hollywood movie producer, was trying to find the law that requires us to pay income tax. He couldn't find it, it doesn't exist. In the course of doing the research for the movie -and as I understand it, you can rent it on Netflix, he found out a bunch of other things about the Federal Bank.
The following is from Downsizer-Dispatch:
Percy Bysshe Shelley said that, "Poets are the unacknowledged legislators of the world." Shelley was, of course, a poet, so it's understandable that he got it wrong. Who are the real "unacknowledged legislators?"
No one elected them. Hardly anyone can fire them. Mostly nobody knows what they're doing. And yet, they have the figurative power of life and death over individuals and whole industries. They can makes laws, and dispense with obeying the law, at a moments notice, on the merest whim, without fear of consequence.
Case in point . . .
State governments are balking at complying with the bureaucratic requirements of NAIS -- the National Animal Identification System. So, the bureaucrats in the Department of Agriculture are contemplating the creation of a new law, which they euphemistically, if not poetically, call a regulation. This new regulation/law would . . .
. . . p rohibit interstate movement of cattle that isn't officially tagged under the NAIS requirements.
But this law, that they call a regulation, would not even be called a regulation, let alone a law. It would be promulgated as an "interim rule."
Interim rules are a neat little trick unacknowledged legislators can use to force people to do their bidding, because "interim rules" can be enacted with no prior opportunity for public comment, let alone Congressional oversight or agreement. (Remember, your elected legislators are too busy not reading their bills to have time to worry about such details)
This particular rule would be difficult for state governments to resist, because it would leave their agricultural businesses isolated from the national market. In other words, a small farmer in Texas couldn't sell his cow to a meat packer in Chicago, unless he complied with NAIS, even if farmers in Texas are not legally required to do so by either state or federal law.
Yes, Alice, we are through the looking glass, and deep into Wonderland.
The result would be that everyone would be forced to comply with NAIS through a back-door means.
Who's pushing for this new law/regulation/interim rule? The U.S. Animal Health Association. And who is that? A society of poets perhaps? Not hardly. They represent big agri-business, which will benefit from NAIS by driving the small farmer OUT of business. Big corporate farms will have special rules that will make it cheap and even beneficial for them to comply with NAIS, while small farms will work under especially special rules that will make their cost of complying prohibitive.
In short, big corporate farms can use one NAIS chip to identify and track a whole herd, while small farms most use individual chips for each individual animal.
Do you begin to see the rhyme and reason behind this bureaucratic poetry?
Here's the kicker. The federal government is prohibited from making such impositions on the states by the 10th Amendment, and on interstate trade by the Commerce Clause, which was intended to prevent the erection of trade barriers between the states. So where do the feds think they get the power to do this? From the Commerce Clause, of course, which they have turned on its head.
Black is white, and free interstate trade really means prohibited interstate trade.
What can we do about this? Well, send Congress a little poetry asking them to stop the enforcement of NAIS. You can do so here.
And if you need some more rhyme-and-reason on this "interim rule" thing you can find it here.

Another very bad "innovation". I tell you, we are on the way to being marked.
Somark Innovations said Tuesday that it successfully tested its biocompatible chipless RFID ink in cattle and laboratory rats.
The company said in a release that the test proved the effectiveness of injecting and reading a biocompatible chipless RFID (radio frequency identification) ink "tattoo" within the skin of animals. RFID "tags" can be used to identify an object or being using radio waves.Somark said the technology initially will be marketed to the livestock industry to help identify and track cattle, and mitigate export trade loss from Mad Cow Disease concerns.
The company, which is currently raising a Series A equity financing, said it plans to license the technology to secondary target markets such as laboratory animals, dogs, cats, prime cuts of meat, and military personnel.
Somark Chief Scientist Ramos Mays said in a statement, "This proves the ability to create a synthetic biometric or fake fingerprint with Biocompatible Chipless RFID Ink and read it through hair."
The company also said it recently formed a five-member Advisory Board comprised of: Mark Prausnitz, a professor of chemical & biomedical engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology and a director of the Center for Drug Design, Development and Delivery; Darrell Bengfort and Bill Lazechko, electrical engineers and founders of TelGaAs Inc.; John Ross, an electrical engineer and founder and vice president of research and development at Viamorph Inc.; and Bob Van Schoick, retired executive director of marketing and corporate accounts at Merial.
Additionally, Somark announced that it retained intellectual property counsel firm Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati of Palo Alto, Calif.
Somark Innovations is a technology company located at the Center for Emerging Technologies in St. Louis.
