Obamas Internet ID Plot Being Tested in Two States
A plot by the Obama administration to impose Internet IDs on Americans is now officially being rolled out, with pilot programs for the controversial online drivers license scheme already beginning in both Michigan and Pennsylvania. According to the White House, the virtual Identity Ecosystem being funded and pushed by the federal government is supposed to make the Internet more secure and convenient. Critics across the political spectrum, however, are warning that the Orwellian scheme only makes it more convenient for the feds to spy on people, control the public, and suppress dissent.
Indeed, critics, who have been sounding the alarm bells for years, say the plot a version of which is already in place under the brutal communist regime ruling mainland China represents a major danger to privacy, free speech, Internet freedom, and more. Organizations and activists from virtually every point on the political spectrum are gearing up to "vehemently" oppose the plan and its brazen threats to freedom not to mention the constitutional and practical problems it entails.
Officially known as the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace, or NSTIC for short, outlines of the plan were initially floated by the Obama administrations Homeland Security apparatus in 2010. Faced with an overwhelming and fierce public rejection of the plot at the time, though, it appears to have remained largely on hold over the last several years until now, that is. Under various executive decrees and programs, the Commerce Departments National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is partnering with government agencies in Michigan and Pennsylvania to test out the online ID plot. It is already seeking other entities to participate as well, including companies.

Based on the Snowden roll-out, it’s absolutely certain to me that the regime knows the name rank and sn of everybody on FR (and most every other website) already.

It has already happened. They know exactly who each and every one of us are.
Major damage is exactly what the shadowy cabal of leftists who shuck Hussein into office want.
