As People are out Protesting the New Arizona SP1070 Law, even though it did not pass. I wonder if they even know what they are protesting for. See Arizona's law would have stopped this new International system which most remember as Real ID.
Now, being that the new AZ law is delayed for who know how many years. It give the Feds a way to move on their own agenda of Immigration Reform. Otherwise know as National ID. It is the RFID tracking system for all Americans, Mexicans and Canadians, and as the U.N. Grows in their own efforts. This system will be used World Wide.

Think, ahhh big deal? Get ready to be educated with this post and the next few. Be sure to read through them all. Educate yourself and know the truth. Lord knows the News won't even talk about this part much. But, This is it.

  • Dems spark alarm with call for national ID card


  • A plan by Senate Democratic leaders to reform the nation’s immigration laws ran into strong opposition from civil liberties defenders before lawmakers even unveiled it Thursday.

    Democratic leaders have proposed requiring every worker in the nation to carry a national identification card with biometric information, such as a fingerprint, within the next six years, according to a draft of the measure.

  • The national ID program would be titled the Believe System, an acronym for Biometric Enrollment, Locally stored Information and Electronic Verification of Employment.

    It would require all workers across the nation to carry a card with a digital encryption key that would have to match work authorization databases.

    “The cardholder’s identity will be verified by matching the biometric identifier stored within the microprocessing chip on the card to the identifier provided by the cardholder that shall be read by the scanner used by the employer,” states the Democratic legislative proposal.

    The American Civil Liberties Union, a civil liberties defender often aligned with the Democratic Party, wasted no time in blasting the plan.

  • For some years now, Newsweek columnist Christopher Dickey has written “Shadowland,” a must-read column and blog that connects the dots in the netherworlds of war and terror, spying and geopolitics.

  • His column last week, however, was all about Arizona, immigration and his argument that Americans should adopt a national ID system. You can read for yourself at

  • While we expect our government to do something about illegal immigrants, we seem to view any government measures to track citizens — meaning you and me — to be a Big Brother intrusion, a quaint notion at a time when you can hardly cross a street or make an ATM withdrawal without being videotaped and dropped into a database.

  • Immigration and IDs: A Modest Proposal

    All Americans—whether brown, white, or black—should be required to carry a passport showing they are red, white, and blue.

  • In police states, this is a pretty ugly process—most often an attempt at intimidation, or extortion, or both. In democracies, it can be pretty ugly, too, and sometimes for the same reasons. But you get used to it, and if we’re serious about drawing lines against illegal immigration—which is all about defining who is a card-carrying American and who is not—a national ID is the obvious first step. Without it, we’re left guessing who “looks like” or “sounds like” a bona fide gringo.

  • United States—are expensive. Mine tend to wear out fast in my back pocket, and the last one I got cost a hundred bucks. So let’s be reasonable. At a minimum all Americans should be required to have one of the wallet-sized passport cards issued by the feds.  They cost $20 if you’ve had a regular passport before, $45 if you haven’t. Foreign citizens with United States Permanent Resident Cards, which have recently been redesigned and made more secure would only need to show those. Anything less—the “biometric Social Security card” advocated by some Democrats on Capitol Hill, say, or the Real ID program to modify state drivers’ licenses as national IDs or the E-Verify program for businesses to check employees’ true nationalities—is really just a workaround that doesn’t work. These schemes also create whole new layers of bureaucracy and vast new burdens for law enforcement.

    Be sure to see the rest of the posts I am adding here very shortly as well.
