Is a Biometric Identify Card the Key to Immigration Reform? - TIME


Could a national identity card help resolve the heated immigration-reform divide? Two Senators, New York Democrat Chuck Schumer and South Carolina Republican Lindsey Graham, certainly seem to think so. They recently presented an immigration-bill blueprint to President Barack Obama that includes a proposal to issue a biometric ID card — one that would contain physical data such as fingerprints or retinal scans — to all working Americans. The "enhanced Social Security card" is being touted as a way to curb illegal immigration by giving employers the power to quickly and accurately determine who is eligible to work. "If you say [illegal immigrants] can't get a job when they come here, you'll stop it," Schumer told the Wall Street Journal. Proponents also hope legal hiring will be easier for employers if there's a single go-to document instead of the 26 that new employees can currently use to show they're authorized to work. But with a congressional skirmish over comprehensiv e immigration reform on the horizon, skeptics from the left and the right have raised numerous concerns about the biometric ID — some of which pop up every time a form of national identification is proposed, and some that hinge on the shape this plan ultimately takes.

      More Than 110 Nations Back Copenhagen Climate Deal

      OSLO - More than 110 nations including top greenhouse gas emitters led by China and the United States back the non-binding Copenhagen Accord for combating climate change, according to a first formal U.N. list on Wednesday. The list, of countries from Albania to Zambia, helps end weeks of uncertainty about support for the deal, agreed at an acrimonious summit in the Danish capital in December. The list was compiled by the the U.N. Climate Change Secretariat. The accord, falling short of a binding treaty sought by many nations, sets a goal of limiting global warming to below 3.6 Fahrenheit. But it does not spell out what each nation has to do. It also promises almost $10 billion a year in aid for poor nations from 2010-12, rising to at least $100 billion from 2020 to help them slow emissions growth and cope with impacts such as floods, droughts and rising sea levels.

          New Hampton School earns global education credential - Fosters


          New Hampton School earns global education credential FROM STAFF REPORTS Wednesday, March 31, 2010 The New Hampton School is now the only New England boarding school authorized to award the International Baccalaureate Diploma. The school recently received official confirmation from the IB, which includes more than 2,800 schools in 138 countries. "This is such a remarkable day for New Hampton School," Head of School Andrew Menke said. "It both accomplishes yet another of our strategic goals adopted three years ago, and allows our students to truly embrace a changing world that is more interconnected and interdependent than ever." An internationally recognized diploma program founded in 1968, the IB encourages students to be active learners, well-rounded individuals, and engaged world citizens. The IB diploma calls for New Hampton School students to take a series of six classes over a two-year period. Those classes will be interconnected holistically through a series of core ide as that are taught through an additional class called "Theory of Knowledge." The IB demands three core requirements beyond classwork including the extended essay, the "Theory of Knowledge" class, and a creativity/action/service requirement. "The IB validates the potential of our students to be competitive and productive citizens in an international arena," said New Hampton School Director of Studies Jennifer Berry. "Additionally, IB diploma students will meet rigorous and comprehensive academic standards." According to New Hampton School Global Curriculum Coordinator Dan Love, the IB confronts many of the challenges that 21st century learners and teachers face. "In so many discussions about education and the need for reform, IB is answering the questions parents are asking — like 'what best prepares my child for success in college?' " Love said.

              Police Allow Limited Number of Jews on Temple Mount

              (IsraelNN.com) Jerusalem police Wednesday morning began to allow small groups of Jews to ascend the Temple Mount, where Jews previously had been barred for fear of provoking Arab riots.

              There were no reports of violence after the groups, limited to less than 10 Jews, were permitted to visit the holy site. Police took the usual precautions to make sure that the Jews did not bring with them prayer books and did not pray out loud on the Temple Mount.

              Before the police bowed to court pressure and opened the gates to Jews, the Palestinian Information Center reported that Arab “citizens and guards of the Aqsa Mosque on Tuesday repelled a group of fanatic Jews who tried to storm the holy site and slaughter cattle as a sacrifice on the occasion of the Jewish Passover.”

              Jewish law prohibits religious sacrifices outside the Holy Temple, which was destroyed twice, the last time nearly 2,000 years ago.

              The Sellout of America: Why Our Enemies are Thriving

              The Sellout of America: Why Our Enemies are Thriving

              The Russians are coming. No, T-72 tanks are not plowing through Poland headed for Paris. There is no need for that outdated Soviet doctrine. Not when Russia can patrol near our coastal waters and harvest our most strategic resource—petroleum.

              While the Obama administration seems bent on banning offshore oil drilling on the outer continental shelf, Russia is filling the vacuum, building its energy wealth and stretching its strategic reach all the way to Cuba and the vast oil pools that lay inside the Gulf of Mexico.

              The Kremlin’s aim to be the world’s dominant power hasn’t changed since the Soviets tried to smuggle first-strike nuclear warheads onto the island of Cuba

              “What’s more, for all the surprise at just how high oil prices have climbed, and fears for the future, this is one crisis we were warned about. Ever since the oil shortages of the 1970s, one report after another has cautioned against America’s oil addiction.”

               – Russia mourns after suicide attacks

              MOSCOW – A Chechen militant leader has claimed responsibility for twin suicide bombings on Moscow's subway that killed 39 and wounded scores of others.

              Doku Umarov, who leads Islamic militants in Chechnya and nearby regions of Russia's North Caucasus, says in a statement posted on a pro-rebel Web site that the attacks were an act of revenge for the killing of civilians by Russian security forces.

              Umarov's statement posted Wednesday said the attacks on Russian cities will continue.

              Russian authorities have said that the bombings, the first terror attacks in Moscow in six years, were carried out by militants from North Caucasus.

              MAKHACHKALA, Russia (AP) — Two suicide bombers targeted authorities in southern Russia on Wednesday, killing 12 people, including nine police officers. Prime Minister Vladimir Putin said the blasts may have been organized by the same militants who attacked the Moscow subway.

              CRANSTON, R.I. – Flooding on a scale rarely seen in New England forced hundreds of residents from their homes Wednesday, overwhelmed sewage systems and isolated communities as it washed out bridges and rippled across thoroughfares from Maine to Connecticut.

              As three days of record-breaking rains tapered to a drizzle, forecasters warned the worst of widespread flooding was still ahead as rivers and streams had yet to crest — for the second time in a month.

Stretches of Interstate 95, the main route linking Boston to New York, were closed and could remain so for days. Amtrak suspended trains through the area because of water on the tracks.

              Many of those who stayed behind appeared shell-shocked, still recovering from floods two weeks ago caused by as much as 10 inches of rain.

              Obama clears way for oil drilling off US coasts

              clipped from news.yahoo.com

              WASHINGTON – Reversing a ban on oil drilling off most U.S. shores, President Barack Obama on Wednesday announced an expansive new policy that could put oil and natural gas platforms in waters along the southern Atlantic coastline, the eastern Gulf of Mexico and part of Alaska.

              Speaking at Andrews air base outside Washington, Obama said, "This is not a decision that I've made lightly." He addressed the expected outcry from disappointed environmentalists by saying he had studied the issue for more than a year and concluded it was the right call given the nation's voracious thirst for energy and the need to produce jobs and keep American businesses competitive.

              Microchipping To Begin In 36 Months Under New Health Bill

              I wanted to post this up so that people might actually try to inform themselves with what this new HeathCare system is requiring to ALL Americans and others as well. This has the links to the bills and even tells you which page to look at.
              This is no joke. This is very real.

              The date by which this registry is to begin is mandated on page 1006, which is 36 months after the Health Bill becomes law.
              The new Health Care Bill, H.R. 3200, just passed by Congress has within it the requirement that all people thereunder shall be microchiped. The plans for this microchipping has been in the hooper going back to December of 2004.
              This ten page document may be read on the FDA website at
              http://www.fda.gov/downloads/MedicalDevices/DeviceRegulationandGuidance/GuidanceDocuments/ucm072191.pdf
              Now witness the wording within H.R. 3200, “America’s Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009” found on Congresses’ House Ways and Means website,
              http://waysandmeans.house.gov/media/pdf/111/AAHCA09001xml.pdf
              On page 1001 is “Subtitle C – National Medical Device Registry” which states,
              “The Secretary shall establish a national medical device registry (in this subsection referred to as the ‘registry’) to facilitate analysis of postmarket safety and outcomes data on each device that … is or has been used in or on a patient…”
              microchipping of Americans must begin by the year 2013.

              Legislating Away Your Freedoms – One ‘Homegrown Terrorist’ At A Time

              http://dprogram.net/2010/03/30/legislating-away-your-freedoms-one-homegrown-t...

              In the news going around everywhere today. We can see there is much going on and more freedoms being taken away from us and lately it seems to be a daily thing.

              Is this the USA? Be sure to read the rest of this at the link provided. These is a lot of information on all of this.

               

              Constitutional expert, lawyer and author Glen Greenwald described the bill as:

              “probably the single most extremist, tyrannical and dangerous bill introduced in the Senate in the last several decades, far beyond the horrific, habeas-abolishing Military Commissions Act. It literally empowers the President to imprison anyone he wants in his sole discretion by simply decreeing them a Terrorist suspect – including American citizens arrested on U.S. soil. The bill requires that all such individuals be placed in military custody, and explicitly says that they ‘may be detained without criminal charges and without trial for the duration of hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners,’ which everyone expects to last decades, at least.”2

              John Sherffius

              And that’s pretty much it, although, it’s not merely at the president’s discretion that all you disgruntled citizens can be detained indefinitely, but rather at the discretion of the entire psychopathic U.S. political and corporate elite. Of course, you wouldn’t be called a disgruntled citizen, but rather an ‘unprivileged enemy belligerent’ and you would be defined as someone:

              “who has engaged in hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners; or has purposefully and materially supported hostilities against the United States or its coalition partners”

              While the wording here appears to target bone fide ‘terrorists’, that is to say, those people who have been set up as terrorists by the US, Israeli and British governments and their affiliated Intel agencies, it is broad enough to potentially include anyone who protests, or is otherwise ‘hostile’ to the US government.

              Have you ever felt hostile to the US government? Have you ever, perchance, marched down a street with a placard that flagrantly denounced the US government in some way? If so, you may have been ‘materially supporting hostilities against the United States.’

              But what interests me most is not so much that the bill was introduced (it’s been a long time coming for anyone with eyes to see) but rather the string of ‘homegrown terrorism’ cases that have popped up in the mainstream media since. Coincidence?
