The Reality of Real ID

RFID chips

Real ID and the RFID chips are being shoved down our throats. We are told they are going to make us safer. That they will prove we are legal citizens of the United States with all the rights we were born to, but is that really so? We were also told that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction and that death and taxes are inevitable. Well, death is………

Imagine a fortress where all the files are kept on everyone in the United States of America. With every new birth of a legal citizen, a new piece of paper finds its way to that fortress. It is believed that this fortress is impenetrable. We are assured that bombs can’t blow it up, no one can break in, and we all breath a sigh of relief, right? But someone builds a better bomb and they blow that building up. Or maybe they find a way to infiltrate the security around the building or the employees. Then all our information is gone. How do you prove who you are now?

No matter how often they tell us something ISN’T going to happen, it usually does. So with these RFID chips, when they say it is going to be all we need to prove who we are, you can bet there is a problem. My guess would be that they intend to use outdated, buggy programs with problems to make the REAL ID thing work. In an interesting article from News With Views Tom DeWeese wrote:

The fact is the Real ID Act is not going to just help create a NATIONAL ID, instead it is helping to create an INTERNATIONAL Biometric ID Card. The world is being enrolled into a single global biometric ID system through documents purported to establish and authenticate identity – passports, driver’s license Social Security card and others.

On March 1, 2007 REAL ID’s “Notice of Proposed Rulemaking” was issued, revealing REAL ID’s global biometric connection. The three main entities driving this system are: The Department of Homeland Security, The American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators, (AAMVA) and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

AAMVA is an international association of motor vehicle and law enforcement officials and is responsible for international biometric driver’s license ID card standards and an international information sharing agreement.

ICAO monitors travelers, designed biometric “e-passports” required for “Visa Waiver Nations” and is affiliated with the United Nations.

Together, DHS, AAMVA and ICAO are fulfilling the three elements necessary for a global biometric system. The fact is, whether it is your intention or not, by including Sections 201 and 203 into the SAVE Act, you are aiding this international ID effort. This won’t increase security, but rather prepare us for a tyranny unknown in human history.

Not just a citizen of the United States of America then! No, not even close. More like a monitored pooch that can’t be trusted to stay in its own yard. This isn’t what they told us Real ID was all about.

The purpose, we’re told, of Real ID is to make it harder for illegal immigrants to get freebies from the government or work. Or at least that is what they are telling us. They figure we are too stupid to put things together, or that we listen to the media propaganda as they sell us a bunch of bilge. I’m sure you have noticed all of Big Pharma’s ads about depression lately? Having a bad day? Just take a pill so we don’t feel anything anymore, then we won’t care when The United States of America doesn’t exist. Wake UP! Smell the coffee but get off your asses! Our Congressmen and Women are betraying us, for our own good of course, for the good of the children, of course! Maybe they will come up with a vaccine? Ya, that’s the ticket!

That Fortress I was telling you about? It doesn’t exist. They are going to put all our private information into a place that wasn’t designed for it, isn’t prepared to handle it, and into the hands of people not qualified to take on the responsibility. It will be an unqualified disaster!

In order to protect the privacy of the American people it is essential that we decouple identification from driver’s licenses.

The only proper government entity specifically designed to have such information and responsibility is the U.S. Department of State. It alone should have the responsibility to create documents that establish and authenticate identity and that monitor and permit border crossings. And that is really what we are talking about here – border crossings, legal or illegal.

In fact, the State Department is now developing a new passport “card” that possibly could be used to satisfy citizen status that you seek under SAVE. It is less than a full passport and it comes in a wallet size that could be easily carried just as the driver’s license. While it is true that the Card contains an RFID chip (not to our liking) the chip contains no personal information – only a unique number linking the card to stored records contained in secured government databases. The passport Card currently is not valid for flying, but that could be fixed.

I think Tom DeWeese has some very good ideas here. I am opposed to ANY RFID chips, but I may have no choice. I suggest you make phone calls to your representatives if you have a problem with Real ID as I do. I think it is a totally flawed system with a disaster waiting to happen.

By the way, I’m still working on Hillary’s voting record. There is a lot of information to go through, lots of things to compare and examine. But it is still coming……..

Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

  1. You are welcome Steven. Stop by anytime.

  2. Thank you for your part in rescuing our nation.

    your friend and a servant of Christ, Steven

  3. Finally some common sense. Why force yet another unfunded mandate on states? If the federal government want this kind of an id, then they should just use an existing form: Passports. You need them to fly lots of the time anyways, it proves citizenship (legal residents already have a biometric federal id), and let the state dept pay for it. Otherwise, I don’t trust any of these databases that they compile. They loose laptops all the time that have thousands of records. I also work with clients whose SSNs do not match up correctly with their name, dob, etc., so I don’t trust yet another system.
