Another Day in the Empire

By Kurt Nimmo

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Is the corporate media-generated hysteria over what appears to be a normal influenza virus happenstance?

“The real destroyers and psychopathic misanthropes, however, are in high places. They are cynically and criminally exploiting the coronavirus—so far no more dangerous than seasonal flu—to shove their one-world agenda down our throats as easily frightened Americans run around like Chicken Little, begging the state to take care of us before the sky falls.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I certainly don’t claim to be a financial wizard. In fact, at best, I have a rudimentary understanding of how the convoluted funny money economy works. However, you don’t need to fully comprehend the ins-and-outs of rigged monetary system to understand we’re in for big trouble and the coronavirus “pandemic” is not only accelerating the fall but will make the outcome far, far worse.

For more detail on the financial end of this disaster, read Mike Whitney’s Why Washington’s COVID-19 Relief Package Must Be Stopped!

No chance, however. As I write this, Congress passed a pork-laden “stimulus” bill.

If we can believe numbers put out by the CDC, as of Friday, March 27 there were 1,246 deaths in the US attributed to the virus. Compare this with the 1968 H3N2 “Hong Kong Flu.” It reportedly killed 100,000 people in the US and around a million around the world.

At the time, the response was not to lock down the country and destroy the livelihood of millions of Americans and usher in the severe violations of the Constitution we are now witnessing. More

The Real Endgame: A Global Biometric

The seeing eyes of the state and federal law enforcement, along with Intelligence groups from foreign countries means the following.   America, you are in for a big surprise.  The Real ID Card which is a truly invasive biometric identifier that mirrors a communist regime and takeover of the people’s rights, will be loaded with super surveillance features that basically places every single person in America under a “probable cause” microscope. In addition, the Real ID Card is simply a non-encrypted drivers license which allows all of ones information and data to made available to Big Brother, the world at large,  and also countless hacker geeks.  Really?  There’s more.

Within the framework of the Real ID Card, the Secretary of Homeland Security, DHS, has the unconstitutional power to list on someone’s Real ID, data within the DMV database, such as the “purchase of a weapon”, ammunition, pick up a prescription from a drug store, etc.  This is sweeping power to the max and as a reminder, there is nowhere in the U.S. Constitution that allows this much invasion of ones privacy.  One of the past Secretaries of the DHS, Secretary Chertoff explained that this means in the end, a Real ID would be needed to cash a check, hire a baby sitter, board a plane and countless other activities.

However, the greatest objection to the Real ID is the fact that it comes with a digital facial image which is unlike the old standard photo which lacked biometrics.  The new facial image procedure precisely measures all of the various points that make up one’s  face, thereby making a mistaken identity nearly impossible.  This has now become the global standard and has been adopted by the ISO, (International Organization for Standardization.) As for the final implementation of the Real ID and for boarding an airplane, the mandated card cutoff for America is October 1, 2020.

Other International agencies have climbed on board and are already sharing information/data/samples with countries all over the world.  The New
World Order will become a warrant less dragnet.  The FBI is spending over 1 billion dollars to create the worlds largest biometric database which may also include the DHS goal of taking pictures from a distance in order to obtain iris scans and fingerprints.  It is just a matter of time to where some states in America will eventually go from the Real ID card to the implanted chip(a grain of rice designed by Dr. Carl Sanders) that can be implanted into the hand between one’s thumb and their pointer finger.

(Ref., Second Edition, House Of Lords: This Train Is Bound For Glory,
The Real ID Card, page 119).  Author, Charles W. Frank

And for those who agree to take the Real ID or the inevitable implanted chip, the right to one’s anonymity will be lost, while at the same time, that person will become a slave and a pawn within a dark New World Order to where where freedom, nationalism, democracy or a republic will be lost by design but through great deception.

As for moral or religious and libertarian concerns, the trumpet is being blown everywhere so that we the people will heed this warning because, in
the end, millions would be branded like cattle while being led down that wide road to tyranny and finally destruction.

FREEDOM IN THE 21 CENTURY

     While the 4th of July will be celebrated this week I will remember what those faithful patriots accomplished back in 1776 after the Declaration of Independence went into affect.  They fought for freedom and won.  By the 21 century American soldiers, Marines, the Navy and the Air Force continue to be used around the world in various military actions which has obviously not always been for the cause of freedom.  There have been other issues involved behind the scenes whether it be the lust of power, oil, gold or poppy fields.

Since 9/11 fighting terrorism has been used as an excuse to invade foreign countries in the Middle East.  Yet, there are many issues that now cloud this mission which has not only affected countries outside of our borders but at home as well. And by now, in 2019, the entire concept of freedom has taken a back seat to over taxation, global encounters whether it be war, climate change, environmentalism, sustainability, red tape, bureaucratic overreach or the outrageous and out of control legalism that now cuts into the very heart of freedom.

FREEDOM OF THE PRESS LIES IN THE BALANCE: FEDS MAKING A LIST AND MAKING IT TWICE

Journalists are now on the chopping block as the Feds and Homeland Security are planning to make lists and spy on websites, news outlets, articles, blogs and whistleblower sites.  Not in America? Yes, in America,, the land of the First Amendment and free expression. Essentially, this “Big Brother” agenda is a hydrogen bomb that is set to explode and  we the people must stop it before it happens.

   “The DHS is looking for a contractor and has just announced that it intends to compile a comprehensive list of hundreds of thousands of ‘journalists, editors, correspondents, social media influencers, bloggers etc.’, and collect any ‘information that could be relevant’ about them.”  http://www.wnd.com/2018/06/uncovered-feds-plan-to-spy-on-journalists/

DHS to Monitor All Media and Journalists: Guess What’s Coming?

4 Comments

The Daily Sheeple

Let’s start out with a revealing statement from an individual named Tyler Q. Houlton, listed as a “spokesperson for DHS,” regarding the agency’s

latest maneuver. Here’s what Houlton had to say:

“Despite what some reporters may suggest, this is nothing more than the standard practice of monitoring current events in the media. Any suggestion otherwise is fit for tin foil hat wearing, black helicopter conspiracy theorists.”

This statement on Houlton’s Twitter account came on the heels of a release that DHS is now going to monitor all journalists. The article is entitled Homeland Security to compile database of journalists and ‘media influencers. Here are two noteworthy excerpts: More

The Israelification of the American Domestic Police Departments

Veterans Today

The Israelification of the American domestic police departments is a deliberate continuation and intensification of the American Domestic Police State since 9-11.

…by Jonas E. Alexis & Mark Dankof

Gordon Duff was again absolutely right when he declared in 2012 that

“Slowly, every police department in the United States, at the behest of the Department of Homeland Security [DHS], is being trained by Israeli groups. As part of this training, there is an increased move to use of military uniforms, armored vehicles, heavy weapons, illegal surveillance, lying to the people, press and courts and systematic interference in the electoral system…”

If this seems hocus pocus, hang in there. Listen to the Boston Globe back in 2011:

“Police chiefs from Newton, Framingham, and Belmont headed off last weekend for a weeklong counterterrorism seminar in Israel, funded by the Anti-Defamation League. They are joining a dozen other senior law enforcement officials from the Northeast to network and get first-hand advice from Israeli security experts.”[1]

The Jerusalem Post confirmed the report.[2] JINSA, the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, admitted in the same year that “top level American police chiefs, sheriffs, and senior federal agents” were indeed trained in Israel.

Two years later, Israel National News again concurred that “A delegation of law enforcement executives from the United States” was trained in Israel. The Times of Israel confirmed the report.[3]

We are also told that the Israeli army “trained London Police in tactics and strategy during Gaza crisis” in 2014.[4]

Gary Harvey: Injured, now neglected, abused by the system

new-logo25 Sara Harvey:  A tribute to my husband Gary

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Editor’s note:  These comments are MINE!

The video below is a brief history of the torment and abuse of Gary Harvey, a man who served his country, who led an active and vibrant life before sustaining a head injury in his home.  At the hands of a predatory guardian, Adult Protective Services, a lucrative and powerful law firm, and a hospital that is raking in more than a million per year keeping him, Gary has been held as a virtual prisoner in the hospital. 

Twice, there have been efforts to end Gary’s life through starvation and dehydration.  Sara fought and won the battle to keep her husband alive.  Even still, the documented neglect, constant infections left unattended, massive bed sores, numerous surgeries for unknown reasons, and the courts refusal to allow Gary to be returned home where his wife could care for him go on unabated.  After all, Gary is an absolute cash cow for the system.

Sara has been the target of unsubstantiated accusations by the predators involved.  If and when she is “allowed” to visit her husband, a security guard is present, she is not allowed to take pictures, she is not allowed to hold his hand, kiss him or otherwise show him any affection. 

Think this is an isolated situation?  Think again!  This is happening in every town, city and state in the country.  This could happen to you!  Your wife, husband, father, mother, child…….no one is exempt from the organized criminal rings operating with and through our family and probate courts. 

banner for e group

The Gary Harvey case illustrates a terrible, terrible irony:  a Veteran denied the very freedom our Veterans have fought for.  Denying Gary Harvey the comfort of his wife is cruel and inhumane treatment.   Join the national movement for reform of unlawful and abusive guardianships and conservatorships —- join NASGA!

Warning to Seattleites: You Are Being Targeted by Greenwashed DHS/SPD

Seattle now under DHS surveillance

1.  Victorian-style, solar-powered lamp lights, attached to the sides of existing streetlight/telephone poles or standing alone, are now in the process of being installed on all major street intersections/along all major streets in the business districts of all fifty neighborhoods of Seattle.  Arc streetlight heads are being removed, leaving their tall, arched metal poles with an odd, decapitated look.  These solar-powered lamp lights are found in at least four styles, mostly variations of black-and-white, but also including one with a red, pagoda-like look being placed in the International District.

2. This comes just after the revelation that thirty waterfront cameras had just been installed from Alki to644447_279163498881216_1340396609_n Ballard, along the length of Seattle’s waterfront, supposedly to protect the Port of Seattle from terrorist activity. This program was cancelled/corrected, after it was found that many of these cameras were pointed toward citizen walkways on land, rather than at the docks, where this alleged terrorist activity against the port was supposed to occur. Seattle Mayor Mike McGinn also abruptly cancelled the DHS/SPD aerial drone surveillance program, against the wishes of the Seattle City Council majority.

Seattle Mayor Abruptly Cancels DHS/SPD Surveillance Cameras

3. Although these solar-powered lamplights are being portrayed by the City of Seattle as part of its Sustainable Development/Smart Cities Initiative, they are actually Intellilights,part of, and being funded by, the US Department of Energy (DOE) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS’) Operation Trapwire/Intellistreets, a massive new land-based citizen surveillance program to complement an air-based urban drone program that they plan to eventually implement throughout our country. Operation Trapwire is now being rolled out as pilot programs in Detroit, Pittsburgh and Baltimore, as well as Seattle.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star – DHS Knows Who You Are!

There is a new component to the Connecticut and Florida Drivers Licenses – the much touted “Gold Star” two-tiered program which is partially Federally Funded, but all Federally Mandated. Starting October 3rd, residents of Connecticut will be required to provide as many as 6 forms of Identification to get this specially marked State ID (PDF). (No that xerox you took of your face does not count!)

There is an opt out, but it comes with an increasingly steep price:

DMV Commissioner Melody A. Currey said that without the gold star travelers will likely face greater scrutiny at airports and when entering federal buildings. Currey said the DMV is rolling out the new program now because Connecticut is on a six-year license renewal cycle and everyone needs to have a new license before 2017, when the federal regulations go into effect.

“This is a federally mandated program to improve security,” Currey said. “We live next door to New York City and after what happened there I think we need to assure our residents that we are doing everything we can to properly identify people.”

I find this humorous. What type of additional scrutiny are we talking about here? Already passengers  enjoy the “after dinner foreplay” without the obligatory 3 course cheap buffet to get into an airport, what’s next – a cavity search because we won’t wear carry the Federally Funded and Mandated yellow star?

SMART GRID: How Secure Will You Be?

Congress funded and implemented Smart Grid, knowing that it had major security issues.  And it still does.  Was our old system more secure?  If the Smart Grid is supposed to make us more secure, then why are we sharing our technology with everybody and their brother around the world?

In an April 26, 2011 Center for a New American Security (CNAS) www.cnas.org blog posting, Christine Parthemore, a Fellow at CNAS, wrote:

“For years, DOD-focused discussion could be characterized as many heads of hair on fire. We saw tons of arm-waving, sky-is-falling near-hysteria within different parts of the Department of Defense on the cyber vulnerabilities of smart grid technology…”

“Many burning questions remain, and seem to be even more urgent after our off-the-record, this-meeting-never-happened meeting on smart grid cyber security…

there is so little clarity to the nature and scale of the problem that solutions are bound to be incredibly ineffective while wasting massive stacks of cash.”

Washington State Department of Agriculture is interested in your purchases as well.

Along with the “Watchlist Service” which apparently will become the “List of Lists” – one wonders who is watching the watchers?

Homeland Security plans to operate a massive new database of names, photos, birthdays and biometrics called Watchlist Service, duplicated from the FBI’s Terrorist Screening Database which has proven not to be accurate many times in the past. DHS wants to exempt the Watchlist Service from Privacy Act provisions, meaning you will never know if you are wrongfully listed. Privacy groups worried about inaccurate info and mission creep have filed a protest, arguing the Privacy Act says DHS must notify subject of government surveillance. More

Obama Readies Citizen Spies For Action

I think at this point it is fair to say that the name “Barack Obama” has become irrevocably synonymous with the phrase “Brownshirts”, and with very good reason. Riding the euphoric wave of a Prozac addled collectivist saturated puppy-love election season, the teleprompter dependent basketball playing android immediately launched several programs designed to centralize community organization using federal oversight. One of these initiatives, ‘The Universal Voluntary Public Service Program’, stood out as one of the most unabashedly fascist concepts to come out of any presidential administration since Franklin D. Roosevelt’s forced internment of innocent Japanese American’s. The idea of requiring citizens to “volunteer” for quasi-military or federal service and subsequent statist indoctrination didn’t play too well with the majority of the public, and has, for now, been abandoned.

The year was 2002, and while the majority of Americans were completely obsessed with the so called “War On Terror” and other devices of distraction, something much more real and decidedly prophetic was going on in our southern hemisphere. Argentina was in the midst of total collapse, driven by banker fraud and extreme currency devaluation in tandem with government mismanagement and corruption. First, cities exploded with rioting and violence as Argentinian police and military attempted to crush all dissent. Soon after, displaced refugees from population centers along with roving bands of thieves flooded into the countryside, wiping out isolated farms, murdering families, and hunting down any small group of survivors weaker than themselves and flush with supplies. The authorities (and I use the term loosely) were too busy trying to suppress civil protests to bother protecting those who were caught unprepared.

This behavior is part and parcel of economic destabilization, regardless of the time or place in which it occurs. Only nine years ago, a very modern and technologically savvy nation of people, nearly cannibalized itself. Those who survived and thrived did so through family aid and substantial existing wealth, or, the tactical building of communities for the purpose of mutual defense and alternative trade. Farmers armed themselves and formed regional groups along with security measures. City dwellers formed neighborhood watches and barter networks when the mainstream economy disappeared. The bottom line; lone wolves and isolated country families were nothing more than tempting targets at the onset of the breakdown in Argentina.   READ MORE

I’ve referred to the “slippery slope”, “Perilous Path To Proper Patriotism” , and various cutsie terms to describe the downfall of the relationship between Americans and The United States Government.

In short – unless Americans wake up – we are screwed. Yes. This is a strong statement. Maybe even one that will get me landed on some Department of Homeland Security list (which will later be publicly retracted but never erased) always pulled out of line to get the old “blue gloved” treatment if I should ever choose to fly, ride the rails, or perhaps walk down the street with my cell phone turned off from the Big O’s announcements. After all – I’m fairly dangerous as a Veteran and thinking person.

When did I become dangerous? When did we allow our children to be trained up to accept this loss of liberty lasse faire attitude?

When I grew up the biggest concern in High School concerning the Prom was ensuring that what I wore was “close enough to cool” to keep me out of the misfit category. Now, thanks to a Federal Judge and the inability of reason to prevail, Santa Fe Prom goers have the additional pleasure of allowing Professional Gropers to ensure they are “clean before entry”. (Video Link)  Yeah – read some double entendre in that if you feel like it.

Saturday night, a certified TSA official will be at the Santa Fe High School prom to oversee student searches.

This all comes after two Capital High School students, sisters, filed a lawsuit saying they were groped by a security agent at Capital High School’s prom last month. On Friday, the court ordered Santa Fe Public Schools and the security company ASI to provide at least one TSA certified person at the Santa Fe High School prom and the Capital High School graduation.

5 Ways DHS Violates the Constitution with Website Domain Seizures

2 Comments

David Makarewicz, Contributing Writer
Activist Post

Last week, Bryan McCarthy, the 32 year old operator of ChannelSurfing.net, was arrested on charges of criminal copyright infringement.  ChannelSurfing.net was one of the streaming sports sites that had its domain seized by federal authorities shortly before the Super Bowl as part of the “In Our Sites” program, run by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).  Prior to the seizure, McCarthy reportedly made more than $90,000 from advertisements on his site.

This arrest has once again raised questions about the In Our Sites program, in which the Government has seized thousands of domains accused, but not convicted, of copyright infringement, illegal streaming of sporting events, selling black market goods and distributing child pornography.  Critics ranging from bloggers to individual rights advocates to Senators have questioned the constitutionality of these seizures.

The most serious constitutional issues arise because the Government does not provide any notice to the domain owners prior to seizing them.  One moment, their normal site is up at their web address, the next moment, all that is up at their web address is a DHS/ICE seal.  Without knowing what they have been accused of or having the opportunity to defend their site, the Government has repurposed the owners’ private property.

In order to seize the domain names without notice to the owners, the Government uses a procedure that permits it to bring an action directly against a piece of property used in the commission of a crime–in this case the domain name–rather than the owner.  This type of action (called an “In Rem” forfeiture) is not new.  In the past, the government has used In Rem actions for purposes such as an action against an automobile used to transport bootleg whiskey.

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.

Female Opt-Out Alert! TSA Miami

I normally don’t read Time Magazine, but today this blog section caught my eye: Stay Classy, TSA.

When it was my turn, I politely said that I would like to opt out. “Seriously?” the first TSA worker asked me with a raised eyebrow. Yes, seriously.

He directed me through the nearby metal detector (the one that would have been good enough if I’d just chosen another line) and motioned for me to wait for a pat-down agent: “Female opt-out!” A female agent led me to a table where she set my bags and then skeptically asked if I knew what the pat down involved. Yes, indeedy (thanks, Jeff Goldberg!) “Do you want to do this somewhere private?” No, thank you. The agent calmly explained what she was going to do before she performed each part of the procedure, and very briskly but thoroughly went through the pat-down. The whole thing was over in a matter of minutes and was a completely professional experience.

Or it was, until a male TSA agent walked behind us and More

AP: 
Shady Las Vegas copyright infringement company, Righthaven LLC, seems to be a small-time legal firm using a canned lawsuit to slap down bloggers for copyright infringement for meager settlements. But now they are going after alternative news kingpin and globalist critic Matt Drudge of the Drudge Report.

Righthaven claims that Drudge knowingly misused a Denver Post copyrighted photo of a TSA agent groping the crotch of a male traveler, along with a link to a story about airport security on the Las Vegas Review-Journal website.  Righthaven is seeking copyright infringement damages of $150,000 and forfeiture of his domain name.

Drudge Report was instrumental in inciting the recent TSA revolt by repeatedly posting stories that exposed rights abuses by Big Brother, or “Big Sis” when referring to DHS Sec. Janet Napolitano.  It seems, this time, Drudge went too far by posting the obvious headline to the groping photo; TSA XXX: Airport Wants ‘Opt Out.’ More

Statists constantly tell us that we need a huge government to protect us from business monopolies. But they fail to notice that The State is the biggest, baddest monopoly of them all, as well as a major reason why some companies grow so monstrously large.

Just consider the recent economic crisis. The politicians have raged against the banks, but government bailouts, regulations, and shot-gun mergers, have caused the banking industry to become more concentrated rather than less. This is standard operating procedure. Politicians and bureaucrats constantly speak with a forked tongue . . .

* They claim they’re protecting “the little guy” from “the fat cats,” when in reality . . .
* The State actually works for the fat cats (though in an unreliable Mafia kind of way).

A huge part of the business of politics involves conferring subsidies and special protections on favored companies and industries, making many of them near (or actual) monopolies that also happen to be “too big to fail.” Now here comes the latest example of monopoly creation by The State . . .

Geneva Conventions Redefined – Part 1: The New U.S Department of War

By Lt. Eric N. Shine, USNR – USMMRR/ USMMA KP

___________________________________________

Most people are unaware of a larger picture developing over the course of the past seven or eight decades, or somehow they are willingly choosing to ignore it. This still-developing image portrays matters requiring a greater knowledge of world history, a higher degree of self-education and a more global perspective to recognize and decipher.

Probably the most remarkable change occurring and still underway is a complete militarization of everything in the United States, if not around the world. The most disturbing sign of this breach of civilian commons today by the military, comes in the form of or the creation, or should I say recreation, as it had once been known up and until 1946, of a new or at least reinvigorated Department of War, which is no longer a “Department of Defense,” to ward off foreign invasion.

In the March 22nd edition of The Times Online, there is an article describing how a new machine is being used to put together the 600 million of pieces of shredded documents that make up the records of the former East German Stasi, a secret police force that employed 91,000 agents, as well as thousands more informants to spy on friends, neighbors, fellow workers and family members in East Germany.

I thought it would be interesting for PPJG readers to see this, since our own government is effectively duplicating the Stasi here in America, currently, with the Obama Youth Corps, tens of thousands of newly hired Census takers, Infragard (created by the Bush Administration to recruit employers and business owners to spy on their employees, who might be “terrorists”), thousands of TSA workers, not to mention the Department of Homeland Security’s state and local “fusion center” workers.

Fusion Centers: Your community based spy agency

4 Comments

“Fusion centers constitute a new piece in a vastly more powerful police apparatus. They give the executive branch an incredible physical reach into state and local communities.”

c/o Thomas Cincotta for The Public Eye

The Department of Homeland Security’s network of fusion centers operate under the auspices of state police or even large local police forces, thus sidestepping the guidelines enacted under the Privacy Act of 1974 that limit information sharing by federal agencies. Yet fusion centers have a national command center feel, with mosaics of television monitors, and desks for all the police agents assigned to work together and enjoy face time — the county sheriff, local police officers, the FBI, National Guard (restricted by law to drug-related missions), state police, Department of Homeland Security, and the civilian intelligence analysts. The FBI field office may rent space to fusion centers, and even helps run the Los Angeles fusion center, but it rarely plays a visibly lead role. Still, all the analysts are tied into federal information-sharing networks. More

‘Beat The Chip’ ANSWERS:9-11 Commission Deadlines National Identity

 9-11 Commission Deadlines National Identity

BTC –  Amid other nagging questions, has been:  who sets Real ID compliance deadlines and what is their agenda, hidden or not?  What drives these guys to say we must have EDL technologies in every American identity by December 31,2009.  

 Unfortunately, we have an answer. 

Among them, it is yet again, pride of authorship in the 9-11 Commission Report.   Apparently our “kicking the can down the road” editorial got underneath someone’s skin. They now feel sufficiently challenged to insist in the first bullet point : In 2009 drivers licenses are STILL as lethal as terrorist weaponry. 

Nah.  They want you to buy the machine readable zone technologies.  They need to retire.  It gooses the stock. An educated guess, is that Senator Akaka doesn’t trust the pork brands they are dishing up on the backs of the American people. State governments are not that dumb. They know what works and what doesn’t.

We are a bit too smart to accept the jump they want us to make between national identity and terrorism.  It’s only a little smaller than the jump from the 9-11 attacks to the invasion of Iraq, and only slightly less conspicuous.  DHS needs a new 9-11 evaluation crew.  Longtime friend, Shane Geiger, 9-11 Truth and Architects, sent us the following report.  More

A dozen bound and tortured bodies were discovered dumped on the side of a remote highway in Michoacán. Police found the latest victims of the ongoing battle between rival drug traffickers on Monday. A threatening message was located near the beaten bodies of 11 men and one woman piled up and wrapped in a tarp, police revealed at the scene. Sadly, this has become a frequent occurrence: Last week, police found four bodies and a menacing note in the same spot.

Despite thousands of Mexican troops dispatched to numerous drug hot spots throughout the country, bloodshed has not decreased. U.S. authorities have offered a helping hand, pledging $1.4 billion through the Merida initiative in an attempt to help Mexico combat the cartels.

This reoccurring brutality stems from opposing drug cartels fighting over cocaine smuggling routes running up from Central America into the United States, the world’s top drug consumer. Because Mexico’s drug trade has become a very lucrative business—pulling in billions a year—having control of these routes ensures a hand in that money. More

Fusion Centers, REAL ID and the push for total surveillance

Leave a comment

AUSTIN – The 5-11 Campaign, a grassroots privacy organization opposed to the federal ID, declared 30 days of vigilance over identity legislation with connections to Information Analysis Centers (IAC), or what is now commonly known as Fusion Centers.

“Based on reports that fusion centers are targeting 3rd party voters and those who pose Constitutional challenges to the Department of Homeland Security’s intelligence gathering efforts we are aggressively opposing any legislation that would secure our private information for national to international data aggregation. This may include voter ID. No one should be profiled or targeted based on an electronic record of how they voted. A routine intelligence seizure based on a national security directive, such as the one issued in Missouri, would lead to arbitrary and reckless disregard for our privacy and personal sovereignty,” says Sheila Dean, President of the 5-11 Campaign.

This legislation observed for action during the vigil includes opposition to HB 4036. The Texas bill calls for compliance with the federal ID mandate. American license information, social security number and citizenship documents may be stored and shared with customs through an insecure fusion center. Other legislations included during the month long vigil touch upon DNA databases, animal information systems, drivers licenses, identity cards and other relevant attributions of private identity.

Last Monday (3/30), the Public Safety Committee heard testimony which included challenges to existing efforts to gain public consent over fusion center storage of license or ID card information. Many objections were raised over the call for facial recognition technology, among other regulations in the Real ID Act of 2005. Texas’ federal Real ID extension for compliance expires December 31, 2009.

Public Safety committee members are concerned about Texans being refused passage into federal buildings and airports based on Texas federal extension status. According to staffers, the DHS has been unclear about the extension standards until now with one exception; the inclusion of citizenship status on licenses.

“When an license to operate a motor vehicle becomes a de facto citizenship document, it becomes a national ID card. We are opposed to a national ID. We hope the 81st legislature will stand on the 10th Amendement and reject the whole Act,” said Dean.

Incomplete Networks & Intelligence Aggregation

The push to expand identity databases nationally are suffering from a big brother reputation, networking inadequacies and insufficient funds.

According to a report released last month from the DHS Inspector General, fusion centers across the U.S. are inadequately networked, non-existent or vastly underfunded to comply with the federal mandate for identity storage and national identity sharing.


“DHS did not provide timely and specific guidance on how REAL ID-compliant driver’s licenses and identification cards must be marked, best practices for the physical security of facilities, or information on the systems that will be used for verifying applicant documentation. To achieve full compliance with REAL ID standards by 2011, states must connect with electronic verification systems to verify identification documents. Several of the systems needed do not yet exist. Specifically, 18 of 19 states, or 95%, reported that available grant funding was insufficient. Several states referred to the amount received as a “drop in the bucket.” – DHS INSPECTOR GENERAL REPORT

Immediate Action Needed to Stop the REAL ID

Today, September 23, 2008 the Michigan House of Representatives is considering Real ID legislation. The Stop Real ID Coalition and the Constitutional Alliance have been urgently requested to make the argument against Real ID. The battle will take place in just hours. It is not just a battle for the people of Michigan but also for all citizens of the United States.

Pro-Real ID legislation passed the State Senate in Michigan last Thursday. The deck is stacked against us but we are here to let Michigan lawmakers know the whole country is watching. We are requesting that we of the Coalition and the Alliance be allowed to testify against Real ID. The tide has turned nationally in our favor (Senators Fault DHS Pressure On Real ID) Over 20 states have either passed laws or resolutions in opposition to the Real ID Act 2005. DHS told the country they do not blink and do not bluff, Real ID will be implemented May 11, 2008. Real ID implementation has been postponed from May 11, 2008 until December 31, 2009. We must now insure the beast is dead. A wounded animal is the most dangerous animal.

Whether it be in Michigan or another State, the fact is we must not let up now. We must finish the job at hand and end Real ID. In each State we must continue to fight and bring national attention to each state as legislation is introduced, whether that legislation opposes or supports Real ID.

It is time to put our engines in overdrive. We ask that all concerned citizens who read this document share it with everyone they are in contact with. Our people have been up all night preparing a fifteen minute presentation for Michigan lawmakers. For a copy of the presentation click here or you can visit the ‘Stop Real ID Coalition‘ website. Even in this last hour or so we are working on the presentation. It is truly a work in progress.

Please appreciate Real ID is an assault on every Americans Constitutional rights. The Stop Real ID Coalition and the Constitutional Alliance have been in seven states in the last twenty days. Invitations from state lawmakers and groups are coming in at a phenomenal rate.

We thank each of you. The United States is the greatest country on earth and we intend to keep it such.
