PrepForThat - If SHTF Happens

 

Samsung AI Center’s Moscow research team have combined with Skolkovo Institute of Science and Technology to publish a new document that shows how terrifying new software can be used to create 3-dimensional talking heads. The images are created via still images. The software’s creations are nothing short of stunning and scary. It can take a regular, common image of anyone and produce what appears to be a video communication from that person. Of course, the implications of such technology are unsettling. This means rival governments will be capable of serving up a completely fake video of politicians. It also means countries such as the United States could leverage such technology for its own purposes.

You need to read this!!  Please go HERE to see the full report and examples of this terrifying technology.  You know this will be put to no good use.  Just another weapon in their arsenal of weapons to use against all of humanity.

Victory: Oklahoma Moves to Enact Law Accommodating Religious Objections to Biometric Photo Requirement on Drivers’ Licenses

May 18, 2016

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. — Spurred on by a lawsuit filed by attorneys for The Rutherford Institute, the Oklahoma State Legislature is poised to enact a law that protects individuals from being forced to violate their religious beliefs by submitting to a biometric photograph as a condition of obtaining a driver’s license.

The Institute’s lawsuit, filed on behalf of Kaye Beach, a Christian, against the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety (DPS), asserts that requiring a biometric photo requirement as a condition of obtaining a driver’s license violates Oklahoma’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Unable to renew her driver’s license because of her objection to the biometric photo requirement, Beach has been deprived of common benefits and services that hinge on possessing a valid driver’s license, including the ability to acquire prescription medications, use her debit card, rent a hotel room or obtain a post office box. Upon being signed by the governor, the new law, S.B. 683, would require that the DPS issue a nonbiometric driver’s license to anyone raising a religious objection to the biometric photo and destroy any biometric images of the residents held by the DPS. In April 2016, Oklahoma’s Court of Civil Appeals reversed a lower court judgment against Beach and reinstated her lawsuit.

“Whether a person views a biometric ID card in the form of a driver’s license or other government-issued form of identification as the mark of the Beast or merely the long arm of Big Brother, the outcome remains the same: ultimate control by the government,” said John W. Whitehead, president of The Rutherford Institute and author of Battlefield America: The War on the American People. “As Kaye Beach’s case makes clear, failing to have a biometric card can render you a non-person for all intents and purposes, with your ability to work, travel, buy, sell, access health care, and so on jeopardized.” More

REAL ID hidden in immigration reform bill

His administration has been caught red-handed spying on Associated Press reporters.

The IRS is just now admitting to spying on Tea Party and conservative groups — and accused of exacting political revenge on others.

Now you and I see, buried deep within the 800-plus pages of the so-called “Immigration Reform” Bill, a new biometric National ID scheme to open the door to more government intrusion the lives of every American . . .

You and I are supposed to believe neither the Obama administration nor career Washington, D.C. bureaucrats will abuse the massive new powers they crave.

But if recent history teaches us anything, it’s that they will.

That’s why I’m counting on you to

fill out your No National ID Petition IMMEDIATELY.

You see, President Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid have already announced “Immigration Reform” could be brought to the U.S. Senate floor in just a matter of weeks.

As I’ve said, without border security, any deal is dead on arrival.

But another — and perhaps even more dangerous — deal-breaker is the institution of a new National ID card.

Under the National ID scheme, the Department of Homeland Security would create a massive new photo database to include names, ages, and Social Security numbers of every single American.

The database would be tied to a biometric National ID card to include information like fingerprints and facial and retinal scans. More

Hidden in that worthless jobs bill was the Border Perimeter and Security Act between the US and Canada.  As I understand it, US and Canadian troops will be (are being) stationed along both sides of the border with Canada to make sure no terrorists (you) or criminals (you) slip across that border in either direction without the government knowing it and identifying you biometrically . This Act was actually the crux of the “jobs” bill; a bill constructed and used as a front to cover up and to pass quietly what is another assault on the public by government and to further the global intent to identify absolutely every citizen on the planet and to hold that identity information in a global data bank accessible by virtually any agency of any government in the world in real time.

If the American Public wants to fly, they had better get used to opening up and surrendering their DNA. At least that is the proposal put forward by the following report:

New portable DNA screener to debut this summer

As with other DNA tests, the process begins with a sample collected on a swab, typically from inside the mouth. The sample is placed in a disposable cartridge, and the analyzer does the rest of the work.

“It’s the same process that occurs in the lab today,” Miles said. But “it will drastically make the system more efficient.” More

America captured: The intended chipping and tagging of American citizens for continual surveillance

“But no doubt, somewhere there is an office of the Potty Czar, dedicated to tracking how much TP you use and how many times a day you use it.” ___________________

One way or another, the corporate federal government is going to chip and tag us.  The first real effort to begin the cataloguing of the people was in 1992 when every state began collecting the dna of every newborn.  Until recently, most people had no idea this was even going on.  Here in Minnesota, not only were most parents not aware of this collection, but none were told it was an opt-in system, not an opt-out.  In other words, they had to agree to have this sample taken, but most were never informed that any samples of this kind were taken at all.  The Minnesota Health department then claimed after 45 days, it owned the dna samples and could sell them for experimentation, or other purposes.  

All dna gathered for any purpose whatsoever is data-based and uploaded not only into CODIS (the criminal database) but also to Interpol (the international data base).  Even the dna of corpses is collected and logged into the system.  The Human Genome Project was launched specifically with the intent to eventually identify each and every one of us through our DNA, and link us immediately to any and all family members; even to extended family members we might not even be aware existed.  More

The Battle In The States: Freedom Vs Protection

Leave a comment

Mark Lerner and Tom DeWeese put together this piece; which can be found at Tom DeWeese, President of American Policy Center  www.americanpolicy.org <  

 

Mark Lerner, Director, Stop Real ID Coalition   www.stoprealidcoalition.com <   http://www.stoprealidcoalition.com

Please pass this along to those you know.

Across the nation, state legislatures are struggling to take back their Constitutional rights as they also seek ways to protect us from outside threats. This has led to some near schizophrenic legislative sessions with laws swinging widely from left to right.

Making it more difficult to get a handle on the situation is the fact that there has been an outgrowth of near “rabid”

anti-immigration groups that have sprung up demanding near-Hitler-style tactics to “fix” the problem. While the situation is certainly serious and demands action, these groups openly admit that they are willing to surrender their liberties if that is what it takes to end illegal immigration. They may deeply regret that cavalier dismissal of liberty. Once lost, it is rarely regained.

To address these issues, three very distinct, but widely variant legislative actions have appeared in the states.

First, legislation dealing with protecting the integrity of the Tenth Amendment and state sovereignty has been introduced across the nation, passing in at least 21 states. The states are reacting to the frightening growth of the federal government through anti-terrorist legislation such as the Patriot Act and Real ID, as well as the outrageous spending included in the bailout and stimulus bills.

Second, to address the illegal immigration issue, legislation in many states would provide state law enforcement with the ability to share information through direct electronic access. Many law-enforcement agencies are eagerly supporting such legislation. Yet, this type of legislation clearly contradicts the intent of the states sovereignty effort.

Third, again racing back to the other side to protect personal privacy from federal surveillance, there is legislation introduced to prohibit the collection of biometric samples/data, social security numbers and the use of RFID chips in state driver’s licenses.

One might ask, what do these pieces of legislation have to do with one another? They each go to the heart of a battle being waged across our country to decide how much Constitutional power the federal government has to collect, retain and share the personal information of each citizen, and how much power it has to force states to provide it?

Tenth Amendment legislation is exactly what the name implies

that states have Constitutionally-guaranteed rights and powers. It puts the federal government on notice that states will not act as its surrogates. The legislation unequivocally tells the federal government that its power comes from the citizens and the states and that federal powers are limited and defined rather than unlimited and arbitrary.*Fusion Centers*

As for those patriots who believe the illegal immigration is so dire that liberty should be thrown on the bonfire, perhaps they need to better understand what they are demanding.

Legislation introduced in several state legislatures, and currently in debate, allows state and local law-enforcement agencies to have direct access to one another’s databases. Some of the anti-immigration patriots might see it is as prudent legislation until one takes a closer look.

Most states now have Fusion Centers. Fusion Centers were originally intended to allow local and state law-enforcement to work alongside federal officers so that activity suspected of being terrorist related could be identified and responded to by all three law enforcement entities in a coordinated manner. Fusion Centers have representatives of all three working side-by-side in one office.

Fusion Centers are funded primarily by the federal government. Some believe them to be an effective tool to fight terrorism with little that one could find objectionable. The problem is, Fusion Centers have overstepped their intended purpose. This is typical when dealing with the issue of technology and invasive databases. Mission creep is just too easy.

In state after state we see Fusion Centers focusing on /all /suspected criminal activity, including misdemeanors. Some would ask you to believe that the mountain of information about citizens being accumulated actually stays within the borders of a state unless a citizen is suspected of terrorist activity. However, the Fusion Center in Oklahoma has been directed to develop procedures for the sharing of information with the FBI and DHS.

This means that direct electronic access is not limited to just state law enforcement agencies and departments. Since local, state and federal authorities are working together, there is no plausible reason to believe federal law enforcement will not gain access to all information a state law enforcement or local law enforcement authority would have.

Nevada’s Real ID is a real shame.

2 Comments

Nevada, Nevada, Nevada – why in the world would you submit now to a Real ID? The American public is not facing the music the financial world has been playing for over 10 weeks now. We are flat busted. We don’t have money to finance a bailout or other federal-to-state programs. Things have been engineered to go bankrupt. The NWO cannot have it both ways. They can’t find the cash to federalize fascism when the fiscal system is broken. Good luck.
This is why I would turn to a State like Nevada and say, WHY CAVE NOW? Wyoming I can see because they begat the monster a.k.a Dick Cheney. Maryland I can see caving because Washington D.C. has them on the short leash. This..from a state who has the freedom to get away with the Bunny Ranches? C’MON!!

As I have said before, greenlighting Real ID is like committing to a federal railroad infrastructure plan when the surrounding states have shrugged it off. In this case, Nevada gets their fascist IDs and moves them forward to the border annnnd? And no one in the next state will observe or translate the technology or coordinate databases. What a waste.

Maybe their officials should stop frying in the desert on the good drugs the biometrics lobbys are paying for and wake up to their own prospects of identity theft and family violence. Nevada is going to wind up on the wrong side of the RFID deal.

IS THE CURE WORSE THAN THE DISEASE?

Would Real ID, Biometrics, RFID and International Data Sharing Really Stop Terrorism? “We have been busy continuing to go state to state to ensure our legislation opposing the Real ID Act 2005 is filed and introduced in as many states as possible. We have also included Representative Charles Key’s, State of Oklahoma, Tenth Amendment legislation that stands up for states’ rights. In some states we have gone much further. We have proposed legislation that would forbid the collection of biometric samples, biometric data and social security numbers. The only exception to the collection of social security numbers is when the social security number is needed for income or wage reporting purposes. The legislation applies equally to state agencies/departments and to groups/organizations. Further, legislation opposing the use of RFID technology in identification documents and participation in AAMVA’s (American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators) DLA (Driver’s License Agreement) which would create a single jurisdiction of the United States, Canada and Mexico for the sharing of citizens information contained in motor vehicle databases has been filed.” (end excerpt) Read full article here:

Oklahoma still fighting for Sovereignty

Leave a comment

For Immediate Release
12/23/08
Citizens to Assemble in Support of Bipartisan Legislative Efforts to Protect Oklahomans from the Federal Collection, Sharing and Control of Personal Data.
Oklahoma City–January 3rd there will be “Citizens Assembly for Oklahoma Sovereignty” sponsored by OK-SAFE, R3PUBLICANS, and the Constitutional Alliance along to support the Tenth Amendment Resolution and to show that Oklahoma citizens firmly reject The Real ID Act of 2005 and similar proposals to use personal information or biometrics to enroll Americans in a national identification plan. This bipartisan event is open to all residents of Oklahoma who wish to retain their rights and freedoms as guaranteed by the US Constitution and Bill of Rights should attend this assembly on Jan 3rd at 7 pm to be held at Character First, 520 W. Main in OKC. 
State Representative Charles Key and Senator Constance Johnson will be special guest speakers at the assembly and will inform attendees about current proposals before the State Legislature that would protect Oklahoma citizens’ private data from being exposed.  Several Bills have been submitted by Oklahoma legislators that specifically address the collection, sharing and retention of personal information and biometrics that put all Americans at risk such as the REAL ID ACT.

The Tenth Amendment Resolution HJR 1003, authored by Representative Key, presents fair notice to Washington that Oklahoma will not be intimidated into relinquishing legal authority, responsibility or jurisdiction over matters reserved to the state as declared Tenth Amendment to the US Constitution which reserves all powers not granted to the federal government to the state or the people.

Mark Lerner, leading expert on the biometrics industry, founding member of the Constitutional Alliance will be present to give an update on the latest news regarding parallel efforts to resist untenable national/global ID schemes.  The Constitutional Alliance is a non-partisan coalition of Americans committed to preserving state and national sovereignty and the unalienable rights to life, liberty, and property. They have been working with legislators, officials and citizens nationwide to educate them about the grave threat posed to our fundamental freedoms that the misuse of biometric identifiers pose and have crafted model legislation designed to stop the national/global ID plan.

National Security Presidential Directive and Homeland Security Presidential Directive

  White House News

      NATIONAL SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/NSPD — 59
      HOMELAND SECURITY PRESIDENTIAL DIRECTIVE/HSPD — 24

SUBJECT: Biometrics for Identification and Screening to Enhance National Security

Purpose

This directive establishes a framework to ensure that Federal executive departments and agencies (agencies) use mutually compatible methods and procedures in the collection, storage, use, analysis, and sharing of biometric and associated biographic and contextual information of individuals in a lawful and appropriate manner, while respecting their information privacy and other legal rights under United States law.

Scope

(1)  The executive branch has developed an integrated screening capability to protect the Nation against “known and suspected terrorists” (KSTs).  The executive branch shall build upon this success, in accordance with this directive, by enhancing its capability to collect, store, use, analyze, and share biometrics to identify and screen KSTs and other persons who may pose a threat to national security.

(2)  Existing law determines under what circumstances an individual’s biometric and biographic information can be collected.  This directive requires agencies to use, in a more coordinated and efficient manner, all biometric information associated with persons who may pose a threat to national security, consistent with applicable law, including those laws relating to privacy and confidentiality of personal data.

(3)  This directive provides a Federal framework for applying existing and emerging biometric technologies to the collection, storage, use, analysis, and sharing of data in identification and screening processes employed by agencies to enhance national security, consistent with applicable law, including information privacy and other legal rights under United States law.

(4)  The executive branch recognizes the need for a layered approach to identification and screening of individuals, as no single mechanism is sufficient.  For example, while existing name-based screening procedures are beneficial, application of biometric technologies, where appropriate, improve the executive branch’s ability to identify and screen for persons who may pose a national security threat. To be most effective, national security identification and screening systems will require timely access to the most accurate and most complete biometric, biographic, and related data that are, or can be, made available throughout the executive branch.

(5)  This directive does not impose requirements on State, local, or tribal authorities or on the private sector.  It does not provide new authority to agencies for collection, retention, or dissemination of information or for identification and screening activities.

Definitions

(6)  In this directive:

(a)  “Biometrics” refers to the measurable biological (anatomical and physiological) and behavioral characteristics that can be used for automated recognition; examples include fingerprint, face, and iris recognition; and

(b)  “Interoperability” refers to the ability of two or more systems or components to exchange information and to use the information that has been exchanged.

Background

(7)  The ability to positively identify those individuals who may do harm to Americans and the Nation is crucial to protecting the Nation.  Since September 11, 2001, agencies have made considerable progress in securing the Nation through the integration, maintenance, and sharing of information used to identify persons who may pose a threat to national security.

(8)  Many agencies already collect biographic and biometric information in their identification and screening processes. With improvements in biometric technologies, and in light of its demonstrated value as a tool to protect national security, it is important to ensure agencies use compatible
methods and procedures in the collection, storage, use, analysis, and sharing of biometric information.

(9)  Building upon existing investments in fingerprint recognition and other biometric modalities, agencies are currently strengthening their biometric collection, storage, and matching capabilities as technologies advance and offer new opportunities to meet evolving threats to further enhance national security.

(10) This directive is designed to (a) help ensure a common recognition of the value of using biometrics in identification and screening programs and (b) help achieve objectives described in the following:  Executive Order 12881 (Establishment of the National Science and Technology Council); Homeland Security Presidential Directive‑6 (HSPD‑6) (Integration and Use of Screening Information to Protect Against Terrorism); Executive Order 13354 (National Counterterrorism Center); Homeland Security Presidential Directive‑11 (HSPD‑11) (Comprehensive Terrorist Related Screening Procedures); Executive Order 13388 (Further Strengthening the Sharing of Terrorism Information to Protect Americans); National Security Presidential Directive‑46/Homeland Security Presidential Directive‑15 (NSPD-46/HSPD-15) (U.S. Policy and Strategy in the War on Terror); 2005 Information Sharing Guidelines; 2006 National Strategy for Combating Terrorism; 2006 National Strategy to Combat Terrorist Travel; 2007 National Strategy for Homeland Security; 2007 National Strategy for Information Sharing; and 2008 United States Intelligence Community Information Sharing Strategy.

Policy

(11) Through integrated processes and interoperable systems, agencies shall, to the fullest extent permitted by law, make available to other agencies all biometric and associated biographic and contextual information associated with persons for whom there is an articulable and reasonable basis for suspicion that they pose a threat to national security.

(12) All agencies shall execute this directive in a lawful and appropriate manner, respecting the information privacy and other legal rights of individuals under United States law, maintaining data integrity and security, and protecting intelligence sources, methods, activities, and sensitive law enforcement information.

Policy Coordination

(13) The Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, in coordination with the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs and the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, shall be responsible for interagency policy coordination on all aspects of this directive.

Roles and Responsibilities

(14) Agencies shall undertake the roles and responsibilities herein to the fullest extent permitted by law, consistent with the policy of this directive, including appropriate safeguards for information privacy and other legal rights, and in consultation with State, local, and tribal authorities, where appropriate.

(15) The Attorney General shall:

(a)  Provide legal policy guidance, in coordination with the Secretaries of State, Defense, and Homeland Security and the Director of National Intelligence (DNI), regarding the lawful collection, use, and sharing of biometric and associated biographic and contextual information to enhance national security; and

(b)  In coordination with the DNI, ensure that policies and procedures for the consolidated terrorist watchlist maximize the use of all biometric identifiers.

(16) Each of the Secretaries of State, Defense, and Homeland Security, the Attorney General, the DNI, and the heads of other appropriate agencies, shall:

(a)  Develop and implement mutually compatible guidelines for each respective agency for the collection, storage, use, analysis, and sharing of biometric and associated biographic and contextual information, to the fullest extent practicable, lawful, and necessary to protect national security;

(b)  Maintain and enhance interoperability among agency biometric and associated biographic systems, by utilizing common information technology and data standards, protocols, and interfaces;

(c)  Ensure compliance with laws, policies, and procedures respecting information privacy, other legal rights, and information security;

(d)  Establish objectives, priorities, and guidance to ensure timely and effective tasking, collection, storage, use, analysis, and sharing of biometric and associated biographic and contextual information among authorized agencies;

(e)  Program for and budget sufficient resources to support the development, operation, maintenance, and upgrade of biometric capabilities consistent with this directive and with such instructions as the Director of the Office of Management and Budget may provide; and

(f)  Ensure that biometric and associated biographic and contextual information on KSTs is provided to the National Counterterrorism Center and, as appropriate, to the Terrorist Screening Center.

(17) The Secretary of State, in coordination with the Secretaries of Defense and Homeland Security, the Attorney General, and the DNI, shall coordinate the sharing of biometric and associated biographic and contextual information with foreign partners in accordance with applicable law, including international obligations undertaken by the United States.

(18) The Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, through the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), shall coordinate executive branch biometric science and technology policy, including biometric standards and necessary research, development, and conformance testing programs.  Recommended executive branch biometric standards
are contained in the Registry of United States Government

Recommended Biometric Standards and shall be updated via the NSTC Subcommittee on Biometrics and Identity Management.

Implementation

(19) Within 90 days of the date of this directive, the Attorney General, in coordination with the Secretaries of State, Defense, and Homeland Security, the DNI, and the Director of the Office of Science and Technology Policy, shall, through the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs and the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, submit for the President’s approval an action plan to implement this directive.  The action plan shall do the following:

(a)  Recommend actions and associated timelines for enhancing the existing terrorist-oriented identification and screening processes by expanding the use of biometrics;

(b)  Consistent with applicable law, (i) recommend categories of individuals in addition to KSTs who may pose a threat to national security, and (ii) set forth cost-effective actions and associated timelines for expanding the collection and use of biometrics to identify and screen for such individuals; and

(c)  Identify business processes, technological capabilities, legal authorities,  and research and development efforts needed to implement this directive.

(20) Within 1 year of the date of this directive, the Attorney General, in coordination with the Secretaries of State, Defense, and Homeland Security, the DNI, and the heads of other appropriate agencies, shall submit to the President, through the Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs and the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, a report on the implementation of this directive and the associated action plan, proposing any necessary additional steps for carrying out the policy of this directive.  Agencies shall provide support for, and promptly respond to, requests made by the Attorney General in furtherance of this report.  The Attorney General will thereafter report to the President on the implementation of this directive as the Attorney General deems necessary or when directed by the President.

General Provisions

(21) This directive:

(a)  shall be implemented consistent with applicable law, including international obligations undertaken by the United States, and the authorities of agencies, or heads of such agencies, vested by law;

(b)  shall not be construed to alter, amend, or revoke any other NSPD or HSPD in effect on the effective date of this directive;

(c)  is not intended to, and does not, create any rights or benefits, substantive or procedural, enforceable by law or in equity by a party against the United States, its departments, agencies, instrumentalities, or entities, its officers, employees, or agents, or any other person.

REAL ID vs. YOU!

2 Comments

One of the most invasive and intrusive Acts passed by congress was the attachment of the REAL ID act to a non-related spending bill.  REAL ID, which could not pass as a stand alone bill because of its intent to tag us all like cattle, was also passed in violation of the enacting charter of Homeland Security which expressly prohibits the establishment of any kind of national ID, (even if you call it a domestic passport) by HSD.

REAL ID is promoted as just another weapon to fight terrorism, with US citizens apparently topping the list of suspected terrorists.  For some reason, HSD can longer be sure of who we are unless we submit to RFID tracking either by implanted chip or by RFID enabled ID cards. 

I would suggest that HSD check with the infamous IRS…..they seem to have no difficulty in identifying any one of us and persecuting and prosecuting us……unless of course you are in that elite class of individuals who has become so wealthy that taxes no longer apply to you. 

HSD says that those who do not comply with REAL ID will become “non-citizens” and for all intents and purposes will cease to exist as far as the Federal government is concerned.  Personally, I see this as a boon for those who are being taxed into poverty…..if you don’t recognize us, don’t know who we are, and we are no longer not only NOT citizens but have ceased to exist…….then we can’t possibly be taxed or forced to pay taxes.  How can you reasonably assess taxes against an individual that by your own edict no longer exists?

We could also now assume the status of “illegal alien”…..we could work illegally, pay no taxes, get welfare benefits, have our children educated, get free medical care, housing assistance, fuel assistance, food assistance and a host of other perks not available to most legal citizens of this country and! We could send billions to our families each year to support them with the blessings of the Federal government. 

Declaring ourselves as “illegal aliens”, US laws would not apply to us, enforcement of US laws would be declared inhumane, and any attempts to send us back to our home country would be futile because we are already here.  We’re just invisible!

Sarcasm aside, ask yourself why our own government is adamant about tracking all of us when they are just as adamant that they cannot possibly track illegal entrants into this country? 

REAL ID is the facilitating act that will put all US citizens under the command and control of HSD.  Acceptance of this ID will be acceptance of that command and control and is one of the final stages of implementing a police state. 

REAL ID is enabler of previously enacted legislation that cannot be fully utilized unless American citizens are accordingly tagged and tracked. ( According to military sites, they can no longer identify hostages without RFID tracking chips to make sure they have the “right person”. )

REAL ID is also necessary to implement the coming “cashless” society.  Your wages will be “credited” to your RFID number, and purchases “debited” from the same number and now the government will know exactly how much you had and what you did with every penny of it.  All of your current financial, medical, and personal information will be logged onto your number.

Refuse to comply?  There’s a novel idea!  You no longer have access to the new “system”.  That means you can’t work, you can’t purchase food, you can’t seek medical care…..you’re not in the system.  You can’t enter a federal building (that would be the same buildings your tax dollars helped to build), board a plane, or ride a train!  You won’t be able to access your Social Security (this would be the same SS system who taxed your wages as an investment in this system…..they knew exactly who you were then and had no problems identifying you) or various other programs.

All of this brought to you by Republicans and Democrats alike. 

We do have our champions though.  Governor Schweitzer of Montana who is leading the rebellion against this horrendous act, and other states are following suit: http://www.realnightmare.org/news/105/  Is an updating list of states that have either totally rejected REAL ID or that have introduced resolutions to opt out or to repeal this odious piece of work.

Not to be deterred, Michael Chertof, head of HSD says that HSD will retaliate against states that refuse to comply.  What?   Did that just fly pass our royal houses of congress unnoticed?  The head of a government agency threatened retaliation against the people of the United States for refusing to comply with an unconstitutional act and a breach of the Bill of Rights…….and…….congress isn’t slapping him down? 

According to Chertof, Montana residents will no longer be able to board an airplane to fly out of the state after May 1, 2008.  Yup!  Sounds like America to me!

Georgia also rejected REAL ID and is bracing for a showdown with HSD.  Georgia’s Hartsfield International Airport will likely come to a standstill as Georgia residents who refuse to be chipped and tracked by HSD will not be allowed boarding passes according to Chertof.  Having previously lived in the Atlanta area for more than 20 years, I can say without hesitation that Georgians’ will not take this lightly. 

Because resistance to REAL ID is so widespread, it was necessary for our Congressional gods and goddesses to come up with an alternative penalty for non-compliance.  That’s how we got the new updated version of the Anti-Homegrown Terrorism (shut your mouth and sit down) Act, which has no limits on who it can target and persecute. 

What I believe this is really about is not so much enacting such an illegal law like REAL ID, but instead, provoking civil disobedience and unrest.  They want us to rebel!  Bush needs an excuse to declare martial law and suspend the Constitution and Bill of Rights.   He and his cohorts in crime knew full well that Americans’ steeped in the concept of freedom would not sit still for this;  which also explains to me why we entered into the Civil Assistance Plan with Canada which will allow the use of their military against us on our own soil.  Why would this plan have been agreed to at this particular time and with what in mind?  None of this is accidental timing.

As usual our congress on, both sides of the isle have not only complied with the establishment of the coming police state, they have facilitated it.  I have maintained for years that the terrorists we need to fear most are holding court inside the beltway.

Using war to promote Biometrics

1 Comment

http://www.biometrics.dod.mil/

Reading from this site, you could come to the swift conclusion that biometrics was one of those “good things” that Martha Stewart refers to constantly. The rolling comments consist of positive reinforcement of the idea that biometrics is just a helpful tool and will be used for nothing else.

According to this promo, biometrics is useful in preventing “unauthorized” personnel from gaining access to, or entering installations, buildings or networks. Of course there is no definition of who will be “authorized” or by whom, or just exactly which buildings or networks could need this kind of special authorization.

There is even a promo that claims that biometrics will prevent the fraudulent distribution of aid, and will help reunite families more quickly, (now, right here is where the red flags should start flying) and another promo says that it will help stop terrorists and insurgents from gaining false documents to travel by sea. Say what?

How many of you out there think that there is a rats chance in hell that a terrorist or “insurgent” will line up for a REAL ID chip or who cannot alter their appearance like our guys in the CIA do?

Oh! And these can be used to prevent unauthorized personnel from gaining access to services, fraudulently. Or! They could be used to prevent you from working, buying food, accessing water, traveling or a myriad of other things you do on a daily basis without interference today.

The site goes on to say that in “hostage rescues” biometrics could help make sure they have the right person. I’m wondering here; who exactly goes out on a hostage rescue mission without a clear picture of the person(s) they are trying to rescue? What does this mean? That without biometrics they can’t identify a hostage? Hint: Usually they have a gun to their head, are tied up and blindfolded, or sometimes just held against their will by the “hostage takers”.

Biometrics would also enable the government to track your exact location if they wanted to pick you up and incarcerate you in any one of the new FEMA camps located around the country. For those who insist this is just a “conspiracy theory” please write King George and ask him to recoup the millions already paid to KBR for these “installations”. These could be the same ones that require biometrics for you to enter!

On its face, this truly could have been one of those spectacularly wonderful tools that could have benefited all of us………but we know it isn’t. Like the GPS in your car and your cell phone, it is an identifier that is limitless in its scope. It identifies you, locates you and can now be used to deny you the most basic things so that you come to realize that you must be compliant.

So who are the real terrorists that our DOD is worried about? Looks to me like its US, and any other person from any other country in the world stupid enough to give any government or its agencies the right to tag us like cattle in order to maintain their idea of control.

What frightens me most here is that there are those out there who will fight to be first in line to be chipped, thinking that somehow this will keep them safe, and there are those who are just so fearful of the truth that they react with rage and anger. Maybe we should start asking ourselves who we need protection from? Who is it that many of us have become fearful of?

And just how safe will you feel when every move you make, every transaction you conduct, every bite of food in your mouth is monitored and tracked at will by the government? REAL ID, biometrics, iris scanning, GPS, facial imprinting…..all of it is for no other reason than to catalog and control the worlds populations. But first it has to be sold to you as some new gadget or gizmo, then as a tool of fear, and finally in the end a weapon of mass deception.
