S1261, The pass Act
Stop Real ID Coalition ^ | 7/3/2009 | Tom DeWeese, Mark Lerner

Posted on 07/03/2009 9:26:36 PM PDT by Mikey



THE REAL ID ACT 2005 AND THE WOLF DRESSED IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING
A.K.A.: THE PASS ACT - S.1261

- - - News Video follows article - - -

I have spent the last few days burning up the phone lines discussing the newly proposed “PASS Act”. I have had conversations with organizations around the country about the PASS Act. I have also spoke with staff committee people and others in Washington D.C. about the PASS Act.

Both the ACLU and the ACLJ are opposing the Real ID Act and the PASS Act. (The ACLU and the ACLJ are the most prominent legal organizations on the ”left” and “right” respectively.)

Special interests groups are trying to force Democrats, Independents and Republicans to support this legislation. States have been and are working to ensure driver’s licenses are secure documents and have document integrity. The federal government, in spite of the states, wants to set international standards that are not needed. The federal government wants control of your state driver’s license. The federal government is bribing states to go along with its plans.

Our freedom and our rights are not for sale.

Some governors want to take the bribe money. The First, Fourth and Tenth Amendments are under attack. The Second Amendment will follow. This is not a partisan issue. All Americans must take action now. Phone numbers are provided at the end of this email. 16 calls per American, 16 minutes (one minute per call) for a Lifetime of Freedom.

* The PASS Act does not repeal the Real ID Act. It does repeal provisions of the Real ID Act; those provisions that are included in Title II of the Real ID Act 2005. The Real ID Act is still intact and is federal law.

* The PASS Act contains many of the most egregious aspects of the Real ID Act; including the requirement for a digital facial image/photograph that will be mandated to be internationally facial recognition compatible.

* There is not a federal law that prohibits the simultaneous use of CCTV/surveillance cameras and facial recognition technology in real time.

* The PASS Act will do nothing to provide a higher level of National security. Under the provisions of the PASS Act the documents used to obtain a driver’s license are not authenticated. These documents are called “breeder” documents.

* Although requirements for new databases and the linking of databases are not part of the PASS Act the fact remains through aamva.net and NLETS states can still have information contained in their state Department of Motor Vehicles made available to both federal and international law enforcement agencies without a court order.

* Two international agencies (AAMVA and the ICAO, an agency of the United Nations) were involved in U.S. policy and law - the Real ID Act 2005 and the newly proposed PASS Act. DHS has called AAMVA the “hub” and “backbone” of the Real ID Act. On AAMVA’s own web-site it proclaims it is an international organization that serves law enforcement and motor vehicle administrators.

* Both the Real ID Act and the PASS Act result in Americans being enrolled into a single global biometric identification system that links a person’s body to their ability to buy and sell.

We are running out of time. Calls must be made ASAP.

The senate committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs will be considering the legislation very soon. The committee members and their phone numbers are listed below. Ask your neighbors, friends, co-workers, relatives and everyone else you have contact with to make the calls as well.

WE ARE ASKING EVERY AMERICAN TO CALL EACH OF THE SENATORS BELOW AND SAY:
1. We are opposed to the Real ID Act and the PASS Act
2. We are opposed to being enrolled into a biometric identification system
3. We do not want our social security numbers in state DMV databases
4. We do not want RFID chips in our drivers licenses
5. We are opposed to the federal government intervening in the issuance of state driver’s licenses

"We need to make government so small that it can be drowned in a bathtub"

Agreed. However it looks more like they're flushing us down the toilet.

Bull. Many states have virtually no concern for the integrity of their drivers licenses and will give them to anyone, even illegal aliens and terrorists.

Not only do I support the Real ID act, I think every state should require that level of identification for voting. I do agree that some states are too liberal on the "breeder" documents they accept, but this is only an argument to tighten up the requirements. Maybe the Real ID act is too weak?

Yeah, how about mandatory chip insertion?
I can see it now all those terrorists just begging to be first to get their chip.
I'll bet you can't wait for yours.
Hell why wait, run on down to your local dept of socialist slaves service and "volunteer" to be the first in your neighborhood to get "chipped."

You're afraid of a "chip" being inserted in your drivers license or Passport? The only concern I have about these is their security. My car keys already have a "chip" in them and so does the ID that allows me to get inside the building I work in. My cell phone has all kinds of "chips" including one that (theoretically) knows where I am at all times. Every merchant in the Country knows my buying habits from my credit card use and the government probably knows too.

I've got no problem with people who want to drop out of our society rather than have the scrutiny that comes with modern life. They, however, will have to put up with the nuisance of not being able to legally fly, drive, enter other countries, enter government buildings etc.

That's probably because you're from Minnesota. We would point and laugh except that your state's incompetence when it comes to running elections is going to be a catastrophe for the rest of us as well.

I have 3 RFID type devices hanging around my neck all day. It is necessary to physically separate them to avoid confusing the reader devices. The employee id reader is even required to drive out of the parking lot. I'm told that inconvenience stopped the weekly theft of 3 or 4 cars from the parking lot by the local car theft rings.

You must be from one of those real smart states that doesn't require any identification for voting. Yea, that's the ticket.

Our system works. Yours doesn't. We elect conservatives. You and your kind elect clowns.

If you really think your draconian ID system is so great, then why don't you implement it at your state level instead of insisting that the rest of the country comply with your brain-addled schemes. Then, if it actually accomplished its goal, you could point to something that actually worked instead of your socialist style "if only we give the government more power we'll surely get a utopia this time" fantasy.

Folks we are under a threat! We must call our elected officials and tell them to vote NO. You must act now. We need to think about the direction of our country and put some effort into it. This needs to get posted over and over again, facebook it, Twitter it. Email to friends. I just heard about this last night. Most do not even know about it.

Don't act ignorant with me, you damn well know what I'm talking about. However if you are truly ignorant of what I mean,then You better have a look at VeriChip.

Don't try tell me 'it'll never be made mandatory in the United States.' That kind of statement is the ultimate in ignorance.

I am doing something about it.

As soon as I heard about it I posted it here on Free-Republic where most of its members are true patriots not pseudo-patriots.

Digital Angel

True patriots beware of the Pseudo Patriot living amongst us. For they are true to one thing and one thing only there own averice.

"Pseudo Patriots are people who use patriotism as a tool to silence all criticism by anyone who does not support what majority political party thinks. These type of people tend to hate free speech unless it applies them This term can not be attributed to any one political group, cause, ect.
Anyone from Conservative to Liberal is capable of being a psuedo patriot."

I am amazed, there are no other mention of this horrendous bill anywhere else on Free-Republic. Nor are there any other responses on this thread?

I can understand the shame-stream liberal controlled media but, Free-Republic?
