Televangelist Pat Robertson warned on Thursday that the government was pushing technologies that would force every financial transaction to be controlled “by computer,” and it could be the “Mark of the Beast” described in the Bible’s book of Revelation.
“The Bible says that they cannot buy or sell without the Mark of the Beast,” Robertson noted in a segment about new financial technologies. “And people said, ‘Oh, well, that just fanciful Hebrew rhetoric that doesn’t apply to anybody real.’ Who would have thought that we could live in an age that that could literally come to pass?”
So-called “privacy expert” Katherine Albrecht told CBN that radio frequency identification technologies — or RFID — had “biblical implications.”
“There will be a time when humanity will be forced to take a mark,” she said. “And that mark will be on the right hand or the forehead. It is the number 666.”
But Robertson worried that it was not just RFID that was a sign of the End Times, it was all electronic financial transactions.
“We don’t want to scare people,” he insisted. “The times going to come, we’re not going to have any cash. We don’t need cash.”
“We’re going into some strange world, ladies and gentlemen,” the TV preacher continued. “The pros — the people who are in charge — find that paying cash are an annoyance, and they want everything on your cards. And they want it all by computer.”
“I hate to tell you, it’s coming. Because it is a control thing. And Satan wants to control the lives of all the world. He wants to be God, he wants to be worshipped as God. And he wants to have control over everybody, and that’s how it will be done.”
Robertson concluded: “Can’t buy, can’t sell without the Mark of the Beast.”

Rep AOC helped Bernie Sanders turn out ‘the largest crowd drawn by any candidate’: report
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) helped Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) turn out a huge crowd at a campaign rally in New York City.
Ocasio-Cortez, also known as AOC, officially endorsed the Vermont senator at the event.
"Bernie Sanders has a crowd of 25,872 this afternoon at his Queens rally, according to the security company handling the event, Contemporary Services Corp. That would make this event, his first since his heart attack 18 days ago, the largest crowd drawn by any candidate," Buzzfeed News correspondent Ruby Cramer reported.
‘Rudy is a lousy lawyer’: Ex-prosecutor reveals why nobody will hire Giuliani for legal work
Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is getting rich selling his access to the White House, in spite of being a "lousy" attorney, according to a former federal prosecutor.
Paul Butler was interviewed on MSNBC by Kendis Gibson on Saturday.
"One issue is that representing Donald Trump has been great business for Rudy Giuliani," Butler noted.
"Since he’s started to be his defense attorney, there’s a huge demand for Rudy’s services. And let's face it, Rudy is a lousy lawyer. We’ve all seen him go on TV and by the time he goes off TV his client is in more trouble. So people probably aren’t hiring him for his legal skills, they want his access," he explained.
Here’s what Trump and his defenders are hiding whenever they insist that something is ‘perfect’
On Saturday's edition of MSNBC's "AM Joy," civil rights activist and MSNBC contributor Maya Wiley pinned down what it means when President Donald Trump and his associates describe something as "perfect" — a word they have frequently used throughout the Ukraine scandal.
"The problem we have here ... is there is no sunshine, there is no light being shone on what happened here. And one of our questions should also be, why not?" said Wiley. "Every time we hear the word 'perfect' out of the White House — it was a 'perfect' call with the Ukrainian president, now Mick Mulvaney is saying [Trump National Doral] was a 'perfect' place [for a diplomatic summit], serving the needs — every time we hear 'perfect,' and we kind of get the suggestion that they're worried and they've got something to hide."
