He was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that it could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed. He also forced everyone, small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on his right hand or on his forehead, so that no one could buy or sell unless he had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of his name. This calls for wisdom. If anyone has insight, let him calculate the number of the beast, for it is man’s number. His number is 666. (Revelation 13:15-18)

20 years ago, when my family and I were forced to move back to the U.S. after spending several years in the Philippines, we found a wonderful new food market in California called “Whole Foods.”

It wasn’t perfect, as it still had tons of commodity food mass produced, but it also had organic and other food options that were better choices than one had in the Big Box grocery stores. As we settled back into life in the U.S., whenever we had to travel we would plan our routes to be able to stop at locations that had a Whole Foods market, as we just didn’t feel comfortable with the cheap fast food restaurants.

But then Jeff Bezos bought Whole Foods and merged it together with his Amazon.com platform. I stopped shopping as often at Whole Foods stores after that, because I knew that the purchase by Amazon.com was not going to improve the chain. I had already stopped my online shopping at Amazon.com, due to privacy concerns and also the fact that they had become the “Walmart” of the online marketplace, driving other ecommerce markets out of business.

My own online store had stopped selling on Amazon.com years before, when we no longer had access to our customers who purchased our products at Amazon.com. They went from becoming our partner, to becoming our competitor by stealing our customers.

Sure enough, as soon as Amazon bought Whole Foods, they gave up all their goals of offering more foods that did not contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in the future.

In 2020 I stopped shopping at Whole Foods altogether, because it was getting more and more difficult to shop there without wearing a mask, and after getting hassled one day about not wearing a mask, I got in line to check out and saw a sign that said they were no longer accepting cash payments due to COVID, and only credit cards.

That was the last straw for me. I have not shopped in a Whole Foods market now since 2020, and I have not made a purchase on Amazon.com now for at least 5 years, and would never purchase anything there again.

And while Whole Foods did start accepting cash again in their stores, they have rolled out several new features to test out on the public, moving towards the goal of having all purchases be done strictly through their app, identifying and tracking everything you do in their stores, much like they have done for years now online when shopping at Amazon.com.

“Just Walk Out” Shopping

Earlier this year, Whole Foods rolled out their “Just Walk Out” shopping feature where one can scan a QR code tied into your Amazon.com account upon entering the store, and then skip checkout by again scanning your QR code upon leaving the store.

Cameras throughout the store, along with Wifi signals, track everything you do including scanning what products you put into your cart, or take out.

This technology is currently being tested at a Whole Foods store in Washington D.C., and one in Los Angeles.

Here is a video that a shopper in Washington D.C. posted online about her experience that is making its way through the Alternative Media right now:

One thing that this person who shared this video is apparently wrong about, is that one does not need a QR code (yet) to enter the store. You can see the “Pay at Register” lane in the video, which is how you would enter one of these stores without a QR code. It is still a turn-style to go through, as I am sure they are tracking how many people are using their app, and how many are not.

I also searched for some recent videos people took using the “self check-out” option, and apparently you can still use cash to check out, for now.

But when they eventually have the technology to roll this out nationally, they very well could eliminate the cash payment option, as they have done in the past.

Here is the Press Release from Whole Foods about their Washington D.C. store, and here is the link to Amazon.com that describes the “Just Walk Out” shopping option, along with an FAQ.

Amazon One: Biometric Palm Scanning Now Available at Whole Foods

QR codes, however, are already old technology, as they can easily be hacked, and they are dependent on a smart device like your cell phone, which is a problem if your battery dies or you lose your phone.

So Amazon.com has rolled out what will eventually replace the QR code, which is biometric scanning of your hand through Amazon One. This technology will probably quickly evolve to scanning other body parts such as your face and eyes. The technology to implant a chip into your body somewhere, also already exists.

Here is a recent article published on Forbes about Amazon One being used at Whole Foods:

After a cashier rang up my purchases at Whole Foods, I got my Amazon Prime member discounts and paid with my credit card. That doesn’t sound unusual, but what might be surprising is that I did it with a single palm scan. Holding my hand a few inches over an Amazon One scanner next to the cash register did everything. No reaching for a phone or wallet, and no need to scan an app, swipe a credit card, or anything else – just one quick wave of my hand.

Biometric Competition

Amazon doesn’t have a lock on biometric checkout. In China, some retailers have used facial recognition for contactless checkout for years. Los Angeles-based PopID is testing facial recognition with a variety of restaurant and retail partners. Mastercard is testing both facial recognition and hand-scanningd, along with fingerprint card authentication.

Not Just For Amazon

Amazon may have created Amazon One to use in its own stores – Amazon Go, Amazon Fresh, Whole Foods, etc. – but they aren’t stopping there. Just as they turned cloud computing into a profitable service, Amazon is now offering One to other businesses.

The number of non-Amazon locations with the technology is tiny now, but it’s easy to see why retailers would adopt it to speed up checkout lines and increase customer convenience. (Full article.)

The Amazon One program is described here.

Sign up is quick. Really quick.

Just scan your palm, enter your mobile number and provide a credit card and/or merchant membership number.

Hover to identify yourself and pay.

Once you’re signed up, you can use your palm to enter, identify, and pay where Amazon One is available – it’s that simple! (Source.)

Can this Technology be Stopped?

Yes, we can stop this technology very easily. Just don’t use it! It really is that simple.

Make up your mind right now that the conveniences of technology are not worth the loss of freedom and allowing the Globalist Technocrats to have access to every part of our personal lives so that they can enslave us.

Any businesses that stop allowing cash payments, STOP shopping there, and let them know why. It won’t even take a majority of the population doing this, just enough to make an economic incentive to have competing stores want your business and be willing to comply with your demands.

That means the public needs to STOP shopping immediately at Whole Foods, and online at Amazon.com. Support local businesses in your community, even if you have to pay a bit more.

The Globalists have been heavily invested in Amazon.com for decades now, to the point where many years they operate at a loss, and could even afford to sell all of their products below cost, driving out the competition, and still not go out of business.

Your local merchants can’t compete with that, but if you don’t support them, soon we will have no other choices.
