Subject: GATT Implementing Regs Require Children to Be Numbered From Birth
Date: Sun, 20 Feb 2000 03:12:49 -0500


In October of 2000, an effort will be made to force all Americans to carry a Federal ID Card. This will be one step closer to forcing us to take the injected chip.

See which includes documenation on the Federal ID card as well as the documentation below that implementing regs for GATT force the numbering of children from birth. Moreover this site contains non hyped documentation on the complete usurpation of our privacy via such means as the injected microchip, and related patented technologies. See documentation below.

Still more reason to not let your kid be born in a hospital. Have the kid delivered by a midwife, and don't ever let the kid go to public school- homeschool the kid and don't let the government know he or she is alive. Stock up on weapons and ammunication. Leave the city, and start growing food and herbs. Get off the grid with solar and wind power. Stop drinking fluoridated water- only drink spring water or well water. Shoot your TV, or only use it to watch videos.

Monsanto, Cargill,Hoechst, Bayer, BASF and the other multinational scum are trying to control us from tit- to tomb. They're using Codex to get control of the world's food supply and nutrients as part of their global genocide campaign to kill us off. Don't let 'em! Help increase the ranks of the resistance by forwarding this to more people.

Recently, questions have arisen as to whether either GATT or possibly NAFTA included language necessitating that every child must be numbered at birth under a member country's "social security" numbering program.

At least two existing treaties mention requirements for both "social security" and "registering" of children at birth.

For example, there is a "right to social security" alleged within the United Nations' "Universal Declaration of Human Rights" wherein Article 22 provides that:

"Everyone, as a member of society, has the right to social security..."

And, the "International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights" requires that every child shall be "registered at birth." Article 24 states:

"2. Every child shall be registered immediately after birth and shall have a name."

However, after a great deal of searching, no specific reference to "numbering at birth" was found within the language of either GATT or NAFTA. So where did these "rumors" originate?

GATT and the World Trade Organization (WTO)

In 1994, the United States entered into the agreement known as the World Trade Agreement (WTA). The WTA established the World Trade Organization (WTO), and it also integrally incorporated the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT). The primary purpose of the WTA/GATT round of agreements is to provide "trade breaks and incentives" to "under-developed countries" so as to give them and their respective industry "equal footing" in the global market.

In 1994, in compliance with WTA/GATT requirements, the 103rd United States Congress enacted the "GATT-implementing legislation" referred to as the "Uruguay Round Agreements Act." The purpose of this Act was to jointly adopt and implement both the WTA and GATT. The United States' implementing legislation specifically includes a "numbering at birth" program.

During Senate floor debates, Senator Pete Domenici spoke in favor of adopting the GATT legislation. At the time, he was attempting to discharge many of the arguments which had been raised in opposition to GATT. At one point Senator Patrick Moynihan engaged Senator Domenici in an impromptu dialogue questioning whether the bill included a requirement for United States citizens to be "numbered at birth." Their exchange went as follows:


 "A final question of special concern is that GATT requires that every United States citizen receive an identification number at birth, and that this matter is unrelated and irrelevant to matters of trade. The answer is that this requirement is included in the implementing language of GATT; it is not part of the GATT itself. This language was included in the implementing legislation because to ensure accurate assessments of income taxes, improper deductions on tax returns must be minimized.


 It is the Social Security number.


 The Social Security number, that is right.

Senator Domenici went on to explain:

 "As a consequence, this section is designed to reduce tax cheating by people who claim children they do not have, which has the effect of reducing their taxes. This is important because it has a significant effect on the amount of tax revenue collected, which directly correlates with the overall net cost of the agreement to the U.S. Treasury. Therefore, the United States has decided that it is critical to maintain an accurate accounting of its taxable population."

[From the Congressional Record, Senate - Page: S15274-S15275, 1994]

Senator Domenici clearly stated that the GATT-implementing imposed a requirement for every United States citizen to be "numbered at birth," which was necessary to comply with GATT.

The relevant provision in GATT - to which Senator Domenici alluded -concerns government-provided "subsidies" that may give any particular industry an "unfair advantage" on the global market. Within GATT, all government subsidies -- including tax breaks, incentives, exemptions, and credits -- must be closely regulated and monitored so that an accounting can be given to the WTO. The Trade Agreement also requires that each member country make available to every other country detailed records of all subsidies so that "equalization measures" can be instituted assuring under-developed countries a "level playing field" in the global market.

If an under-developed member country complains and alleges to the WTO that it has been disadvantaged by another country because of government-provided subsidies, the challenged country must open up its books and records for examination by the WTO and must prove that the subsidy complies with the WTO Agreement. In such case, the "challenged country" must be able to account for and verify all government-granted tax breaks, benefits, and incentives. Therefore, every detail of every tax-related subsidy, including "tax exemptions" and "tax credits for children" must be impeccably accounted for and completely verifiable.

Consequently, GATT itself does not require member countries to "number" all citizens and residents at birth, however, the intent and consequence of the United States' GATT implementing legislation is that every child must be numbered so that "dependent exemptions" and "child tax credits" can be reported to the WTO.

Relevant excerpts from the U.S. implementing Act and from the WTO/GATT documents are included below for those who would like to do further research or to verify this information.

(b) Where the granting authority, or the legislation pursuant to which the granting authority operates, establishes objective criteria or conditions governing the eligibility for, and the amount of, a subsidy, specificity shall not exist, provided that the eligibility is automatic and that such criteria and conditions are strictly adhered to.

This process may include, where appropriate, presentation of questions to the government of the subsidizing country and of the complaining country to collect information, as well as to clarify and obtain elaboration of information available to the parties to a dispute through the notification procedures set forth in Part VII above.
