Man Arrested For Microwaving His ID To Fry The Microchip And Protect His Privacy



John Vibes | True Activist

This week, a 29-year old German man was arrested at Frankfurt Airport after police noticed that he had microwaved his ID to disable the microchip inside.

Microwaving ID’s is actually extremely common among German and other EU citizens who are concerned about their privacy.

The man, who has not yet been identified is now facing charges of “illegally modifying official documents,” and is accused of tampering with state property.

This new charge has many in the EU worried, as there are likely thousands of people who have microwaved their IDs to protect their privacy.

Edward Snowden Square creator Markwart Faussner explained in an interview with WorldViews in June that German people are traditionally skeptical of government surveillance because they have experienced so much of it in their history.

“Much of this can be explained historically, Germans have experienced observation throughout the 20th century. After the Nazi era, the Stasi intelligence service in the former East Germany monitored most of the country’s citizens.

When the Berlin Wall fell, East Germans suddenly found out from official government files that their friends or even family members had spied on them for years or decades.

Hence, there is still a deeply rooted suspicion of state authorities in Germany,” Faussner said.

According to the Washington Post, a 2014 survey found that nearly 40 percent of Germans said they considered increasing digitalization and the role of intelligence services to be a threat.

    So how the hell is your personal identification government property? It’s not in the government’s wallet, it’s in MY wallet. That means it’s MY shit, not YOUR shit.

    • Mr. Wrestling III

      And we pay for those cards, we bought them, they’re definitely ours.

      • returnofMrSnudge

        No, they’re not yours, they and you are possessions of the state. You might like to think it is otherwise, but that doesn’t change the truth of it.
        Not one of us is free in any meaningful sense.

        • Dirty Dave

          Well the word “free” really doesn’t have much meaning to be honest, it’s very subjective. Liberty on the other hand is much more useful and way less ambiguous.

        • Mathieu Hubin

          Perhaps it is time for the majority (The people) to toss these evil bastards into the depths of the sea where they belong.

  • James Michael

    Why are you retards taking the property of the STATE….give them their shit back…and stop being their well trained Tobies….

    • Xavier McHenry

      Great idea. Without them you can’t get a job, a place to live, or even food in some cases. ever heard of the phrase “you’re being manipulated like pigs to the slaughter?” If you aren’t a good pig, you get slaughtered.

      • Nicole Kramer

        uh…oh….. shall we say “mark of the beast”? better hug a bible quickly!!

  • OldPatriot32

    How many seconds or minutes on high does it take to fry the chip?

    • Xavier McHenry

      If your ID starts to bubble, you’ve done it too long. lol

      Probably only like 10 seconds. It only takes a few seconds for similar particles from the sun to wipe out electronics, so it shouldn’t be long at all to wipe out the chips in your ID’s.

      Just know that they have these chips in your credit cards and other forms of plastic identification as well.

      Also understand that when the laws in America were made to put chips into thing like IDs and credit cards, it was 1) to help find you if some psycho nabbed you up, 2) to help nail people who steal identifications and credit card information and 3) to help you recover these cards should you lose it.

      Are they being used for nefarious reason? Yeah, most likely.
      Can they still be used to help save your ass from bad situations? Definitely.

      So, is your desire to not be tracked stronger than your desire to have someone watching over you in case bad things happen? That’s the choice each of us has to make, because both forces are actively working within the chips of our cards.

      • Merrill Burh-Ton

        Really Xavier?

      • isnamthere

        The so-called “good reasons” you list for the chipping are really just the good excuses they give idiots to get them to acquiesce gratefully to the chipping.

        • Xavier McHenry

          Probably. Personally I’m worried about things other than people knowing where I am. Considering we have satellites that can watch a ladybug shit on an aphid, if they want to watch me, they are going to watch me. you waste your chips they still have cameras on you. And the more you love technology, the more the chips are going to be put into everything. For example, soon you will have clothing that will tell you your blood pressure and heart rate and other vital statistics. If something should go wrong, these chips will be able to call your doctor so you can get the fastest help available. They will also be easy to hack into if someone wants to track you. It’s just how life is going. Everyone who has a video phone participates willingly in this. The thing is, it doesn’t matter. why?

          Because you are too small to be cared about.

          You are nothing but a number to them. As long as you stay a number to them, you are nothing to them. It is only when you go from being a number to a person that you should be concerned. In other words, if you do stupid shit to make a bad name for yourself.

          Here is some perspective. I’m an asshole journalist. As in I say what I feel regardless of who it might hurt. I’m known for being honest, but brutally so. I’m also known to go onto the personal sites of several of our less than wonderful political candidates and I tell them which hole they can get themselves fucked out of. I do this DAILY. It’s my entertainment, and the entertainment of others. I don’t hold blows either. A politician does something wrong, I’m in their face like the dogs of hell. Just because I enjoy it. I’ve even told Hillary Clinton it would be a great day if she were to die choking on David Koch’s dick. I can promise you I’m on a number of “lists.”

          And…..that’s it. No scary secret service, no MIBs chasing me down in vans. The worst I get is sometimes someone stops my ability to post every now and then. With my luck, it’s probably Anon, because Clinton can’t do shit with computers.

          And so, if things were as bad and scary as you claim, I would have disappeared long ago. I’m still here.

          • isnamthere

            “I’m still here.”

            I guess that means you’re a nobody too.

            “…I say what I feel regardless….”

            You also, apparently, assume a great deal about those whom you do not know and read an awful lot into a one-sentence comment.

      • Nicole Kramer

        show me one instance where people were rescued by the govt. because of said chips. It than becomes an issue with you and I simply not being important enough to find? If you kill a cop though its amazing how much that changes lol……I say no thanks keep the chips!

        • Xavier McHenry

          George Bush when he choked on the pretzel. He carries a chip like that on him all the time, just in case something happens to him. As does Cheney, Rove, Clinton, Gore and pretty much every leader of the free and unfree world. When it comes to killing cops…if you kill a fucking cop, regardless of what dickks they are to you, you’re already in trouble. The chip didn’t do shit to make that happen. So yeah, if you are a criminal dickbag murderer, you might want to fear the chip. If you’re just a normal person not fucking with anything or wanting to murder cops, you’re nothing to them. No reason to track you. Oh, and if you DO kill a cop, not having identification saying “HI! I’m the cop killer” on you is your wisest move, meaning you wouldn’t want your chip infested card on you in the first place.

          Your chip is a double edged sword, but only if you are stupid criminal that is too stupid to keep themselves from getting caught in the first place. One of the best things about technology is smart people can use it to their advantage. If you are a stupid ass, you might not want to pick criminal as a career choice. other than that, the chips aren’t going to do shit to your world.

          • Nicole Kramer

            if you think that killing cops only will make you a bad guy in post 9/11 times than your a big sheep……good luck in life!

    Yet the president of the United States can have “Race of Father” – “African” on his 100% forged Birth Certificate, and nobody in the Department of Homeland Security says anything about it.



    Here is an excerpt from the Vital Statistics Report which was co-written by the Surgeon General of the United States of America describing in detail how races of persons in America are classified. See if you can locate “African” in any of these paragraphs?

    Vital Statistics of the United States in 1961


    FORREST E. LINDER, PH. D., Director
    THEODORE D. WOOLSEY, Assistant Director
    0. K. SAGEN, PH. D., Assistant Director

    “Page 231”

    “Race and Color”

    “Births in the United States in 1961 are classified for vital statistics into white, Negro, American Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Aleut, Eskimo, Hawaiian and part-Hawaiian (combined), and “other nonwhite.”

    “The category “white” includes, in addition to persons reported as “white,” those
    reported as Mexican or Puerto Rican. With one exception, a reported mixture of
    Negro with any other race is included in the Negro group; other mixed parentage
    is classified according to the race of the nonwhite parent and mixtures of
    nonwhite races to the race of the father. The exception refers to a mixture of
    Hawaiian and any other race, which is classified as Part-Hawaiian. In most tables a less detailed classification of “white” and “nonwhite” is used.”

    “Completeness of birth registration in 1961 for “white” births is estimated to be
    99.3 percent and for “nonwhite” births, 96.6 percent. The most recent figures for
    other groups are from the 1950 test which indicated registration completeness at
    that time to be 85.1 percent for American Indians and 97.4 percent for ”other
    races,”chiefly Chinese and Japanese. Both figures are probably higher for 1961,
    but more precise estimates are not available.”

    “A comparison of the race designation in matched sets of birth certificates and
    census records from the 1950 registration completeness ‘test indicates very high
    agreement for white persons and Negroes. There were, however, sub-stantially
    fewer American Indians recorded on birth records than on census records.”

    *** Important Note:

    A complete search was made of this entire 246 page official document and there were ZERO matches for “African”.


    1. The only person in America with a Birth Certificate for Barack Hussein Obama, is Barack Hussein Obama, and the only place in America where there is a Birth Certificate for Barack Hussein Obama on file, is on the White House Web site, because as everyone can clearly see from the above excerpt, “African” is not an approved racial designation and therefore the Birth Certificate copy has no original in Hawaii from which it was copied from.

    2. The Surgeon General of the United States would have standardized the racial designations to be used on all official U.S. Government forms for all medical services to those represented in this document, which he helped to write. For there to be a Birth Certificate with “Race of Father” – “African” during the very year he took office and wrote this official report, is not possible.

    3. Africa has (((( FORTY SEVEN )))) different and unique countries within its continental borders and everyone legally born in Africa of all races, nationalities, and religions, is African. Similarly, every person legally born in all of America’s (((( FIFTY STATES )))) of all races, religions, and nationalities is an American. But no where in all of the World would a hospital put “Race of Father” – “American” on anyone’s Birth Certificate, because being American is not a race.

    4. The Barack Hussein Obama Birth Certificate is a 100% forgery.

    • AtomicMetroid

      Actually, Obama’s momma was jewish.

      • jim

        Mother does not count. It is the father that dictates the religion and sometimes nationality.

        • AtomicMetroid

          Jews can only be considered jewish only if their mother is jewish. Try gain.
          Obama signed a loyalty oath with AIPAC. He is jewish and works for jewish lobbyists.

          • jim

            Obama claims a lot of things as necessary. His father is Muslim and according to the islamic faith hi is determined a Muslim. I have never heard any claim to the Jewish

            faith. See the report of a woman whose father deserted her mother. The mother raised her christian, she married a non Muslim and is now awaiting the birth of her child and her death for marrying outside the faith. The father in this case is Muslim that determines her to be a muslim.

    That friends are recruited to spy on people is common police practice anywhere.

  • Ben William

    I did this to my passport. The ‘officials’ (customs) always look at the (back) of it with curiosity, but never have asked me “what happened”.

  • Simon Sez

    Your ID is government property?
    Who owns you?

  • Jon Nova

    Uh… your mobile phone? Hello?, Duh….

  • abinico

    How did the cops know he microwaved his ID. Did he tell them? What stinks about this story is – how did the cops know he nuked his ID?

  • mike jones

    Even if it was nuked. How can they prove that he did it?
