REAL ID: A Major Victory is Near

"Repeal the Real ID Act" is DownsizeDC.org's oldest active campaign.

That's because REAL ID - which is a de facto national ID card - lays the foundation for a future police state.

That's why so many people have fought against it so hard for so long. And thanks to that resistence REAL ID still hasn't been implimented, six years after it became law! A big part of this is because of your pressure.

And now there's more good news . . .

There's a silver lining in the monstrous, 1,926-page appropriations bill (H.R. 3082). This bill rescinds funding for a REAL ID "hub." The House already passed the bill, and the Senate will consider it as soon as TODAY.

This hub would have created a centralized ID verification system, where states share driver information with each other. Without this hub, REAL ID suffers a fatal blow.

That's why we're asking you to tell Congress to support this cut in REAL ID's budget, and to repeal REAL ID altogether
.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

I'm glad that the House is rescinding funding for a REAL ID hub in the H.R. 3082 budget bill. My Senators should ensure that this rescission remains in the bill.

But you should do more. Repeal REAL ID entirely.

* REAL ID assumes I am a foreign terrorist or illegal immigrant, and that I must "prove" my innocence
* I am punished with higher fees, more red tape, and longer DMV lines
* And my private information will be centralized, making me more susceptible to identity theft and other dangers

Furthermore . . .

* The REAL ID law still exists as an unconstitutional, unfunded mandate on the cash-strapped states
* 21 states will still be out of compliance when it is scheduled to take effect in May, 2011 http://www.seattlepi.com/local/431425_realid08.html?source=mypi
* By de-funding the verification hub, there's no longer any point in forcing the states to implement REAL ID

This is America, land of the free. It's not the land of "Your papers, please." Help restore liberty to America and repeal REAL ID.

Government Snooping in Your Trash

Somebody could be snooping in your trash . . . and you're paying for it!

In a growing number of cities across the U.S., local governments are placing computer chips in recycling bins to collect data on refuse disposal, and then fining residents who don't participate in recycling efforts and forcing others into educational programs meant to instill respect for the environment.

In at least one city, Dayton, Ohio, this invasion of your privacy is paid for by federal "Stimulus" funds.

Worse, there is evidence that recycling programs actually HARM the environment
!

Dayton's recycling subsidy is just one of thousands of examples of misspent Stimulus funds, and another piece of evidence that the Stimulus should never have passed.

So please send another letter telling Congress to rescind all remaining Stimulus funds using DownsizeDC.org's Cut Spending Campaign.

You may borrow from or copy this letter . . .

The Stimulus was advertised as putting money in "shovel-ready" projects that would create jobs. But it is a gigantic waste and you must rescind all remaining funds.

For example: $500,000 went to the city of Dayton, Ohio to snoop in people's garbage and rearrange trash bins! http://www.whiotv.com/money/24513951/detail.html

This isn't job creation, it's social engineering.

Dayton's trash disposal policy is Dayton's concern, not mine or yours. The Constitution does not authorize the federal government to give aid to states or cities, which means federal funding of this program violates the Tenth Amendment.

There are 99 similarly wasteful projects listed in a report by Sens. McCain and Coburn that you should read. http://coburn.senate.gov/public//index.cfm?a=Files.Serve&File_id=a7e82141-1a9e-4eec-b160-6a8e62427efb

I resent my dollars paying for projects like these. Rescind the Stimulus!

END LETTER


You can send your letter through DownsizeDC.org's Educate the Powerful System
.

And if you are as outraged by government waste as we are, please forward this to friends and "like" our Facebook page.

What Your PC Knows About You

by Mark Nestmann
Sovereign Society

If someone could secretly stand behind you and monitor everything you’ve done on your PC, what would they discover about you that you would prefer to keep private? Thanks to new technologies that secretly track everywhere you go on the Internet, that’s an appropriate comparison of the threat you face unless you take advance precautions.

Perhaps you’ve never visited a Web site you wouldn’t want your spouse, your children, your neighbors, or the FBI to know about. Perhaps you really do have “nothing to hide.” But if you do, you’ll want to understand the threat to your privacy – and what you can do to protect yourself.

The centerpiece of this threat is a tracking technology that records what Web sites you visit, what links you click on, and what types of search engine questions you ask. If you’ve entered personal information into applications that use these technologies, that data is stored as well. All of it is written to hidden directories on your hard disk. And there it stays – permanently – unless you know how to delete it.

Usually what’s recorded is innocuous. You might not mind that your hard disk has a record of the movies you’ve rented, the fact that you’re interested in photography, or that you want to take pilot lessons. And you might not object to the fact that the companies that create these hidden directories sell the information. For instance, a company selling photographic supplies would surely be interested in presenting an advertisement for its services to someone with a proven interest in photography.

However, perhaps your interests are a bit more controversial. Or even if they’re not, perhaps someone with access to your PC has less conventional preferences than you. In that event, the data in the hidden directories could possibly come back to haunt you, should your PC ever be compromised – or searched by law enforcement.

Say, for instance, that you – or someone with access to your PC – watch a controversial video on the Internet. Guess what? The Web site serving up the video to your browser most likely plants a tracking beacon on your hard drive, where it stays – potentially, forever. Erasing “cookies” in your browser will NOT delete these beacons!

The largest offender in this regard is probably a program called Adobe Flash Player (AFP). Many Web sites use AFP to deliver audio and visual content. But AFP also creates a hidden directory on your hard disk to track the Web sites you visit, especially those with interactive or multimedia features. Companies that plant the beacons use them to personalize your browsing experience, and also sell the data they contain to direct marketing companies.

Since you can’t delete these files from your browser, the most practical way to deal with them is to install a browser add-on program to manage and delete them. One such program is “Better Privacy,” an add-on for Firefox. You can download it here. I’ve configured Better Privacy to delete all AFP beacons when I shut down my browser.

I also suggest that you configure AFP to minimize tracking altogether. You can adjust its settings using a virtual control panel.

I’ve adjusted the settings on my PC to always deny access to my PC’s camera or microphone, never storing any content, and deleting all records of Web sites I’ve visited that use AFP. Those settings, together with the Better Privacy add-on, seem to have rid my PC of “beacons” – at least those from AFP. These settings limit functionality on some Web sites, but so long as you configure AFP to allow programs to ask you for permission to store content, you can control which ones have access to your PC. When you exit your browser, Better Privacy deletes them.

Incidentally, none of AFP’s tracking software violates any U.S. law; at least none of which I’m aware. And don’t look to the government for help – law enforcement agencies surely find beacons on your PC a highly informative tool to track your Web browsing behavior.

With big business and big government collaborating to invade your online privacy, you have only one resource to depend upon – yourself. So if you don’t want permanent records of your online life residing on your hard drive, don’t call your Congressman for help. You alone must take responsibility for protecting your online privacy.

500 Million Sensitive Records Breached Since 2005

San Diego, CA, August 25, 2010 -- The most recent total from the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse’s Chronology of Data Breaches shows more than a half billion sensitive records breached since 2005, leaving Americans vulnerable to identity theft.

Employees losing laptop computers, hackers downloading credit card numbers and sensitive personal data accidentally exposed online -- the Chronology of Data Breaches shows hundreds of ways that the personal information of consumers is lost, stolen or exposed.

The Chronology of Data Breaches, a project of the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse since 2005, lists incidents involving breached consumer information, such as personal medical records, credit card numbers and Social Security numbers.

The most recent total, published last night, is a wake-up call to consumers who think identity theft can’t happen to them.

The Privacy Rights Clearinghouse estimates that the Chronology shows only a fraction of the total number of data breaches.

"This is a conservative number," says Director Beth Givens, "We generally learn about breaches that garner media attention.
Unfortunately, many do not. And, because many states do not require companies to report data breaches to a central clearinghouse, data breaches occur that we never hear about.
Our Chronology is only a sampling."

Data breaches of sensitive information, especially Social Security and credit card numbers, make consumers vulnerable to identity theft. According to a 2009 Javelin Research & Strategy, individuals are four times more likely to be the victim of identity theft in the year after receiving a data breach notification letter.
https://www.javelinstrategy.com/brochure-158

The recently expanded Chronology provides consumers and researchers the ability to perform rapid searches to identify trends in data breaches. It also allows visitors to look up businesses, agencies and organizations by name.

Unfortunately, consumers cannot completely protect themselves from a data breach. It is up to organizations that collect data on consumers to take the steps to ensure the privacy
and security of the data they collect and maintain.

Politicians Running Scared from their Constituents

Americans are standing up and speaking up when it comes to their rights. The health care issue, national id, food control, illegal immigration and the list goes on.

Members of the US Congress and House are all running scared and not facing their constituents. Many like Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri has been having town hall meetings across the state but the only way people could get in to see her was to pre-register. This method prevents those who had not heard about it until the day before to enter into the meeting.

Members of Congress such as Representative Heath Shuler (D)of North Carolina, has opted to use tele-town hall meetings where questions could be screened and answered. This method allows him to pick and choose the questions and pre-plan the answers.

State Reps like Rep Mitch Gillespie who does not care about the privacy and security of the residents of North Carolina enough to even consider working on Legislation to stop the National ID Card in NC.

A recent conversation with Mitch went as follows:

"Another Session with Mitch ignoring the voice of We the People. Perhaps he won’t be reelected. My fingers are crossed. My emails are being sent out across the district. "

Mitch: "Maybe a democrat will get elected then see what your chances are."

"So long as they have the fortitude to stand up for those they represent and are willing to abide by the Constitution which they swore to uphold and protect, then party affiliation is a moot point. I suppose however, we would have no less of a chance than we did with you in office."

Mitch: "This thinking shows you don't understand anything about the political process. I will remove you from my contacts, you need to contact Sen. Queen in the future."

Mitch Gillespie's response was to ignore the people he is supposed to represent.

In all the above cases there is a clear case of no right to redress of grievances as provided by our Constitution.

Americans are correct in that they want to vote the majority of these clowns out of office and replace them with people who will abide by their oath of office.

The legislators are too afraid to face the people and with just cause because come next election cycle they may be out of a job. It is up to us "We the People" to find real representatives or to run for office ourselves in order to return our nation to the core values that made it great.

State Dept. claims RFID acts as intended, privacy still at risk

This message from BeatTheChip

Ultimately, Michael Holly, chief of consular affairs/international affairs at the U.S. Department of State, says Chris Paget’s interception of the passport card’s data is no reason for concern.

"Mr. Paget actually was doing nothing more than what we intended to have happen…the card, if powered by a reader, will give off the ID number, which is simply a pointer to the data that we share with the Department of Homeland Security"

he says.

BTC Comment - Is the State Department's job is to make egregious hacks look like it was all their idea and that they have everything under control?

I guess the more important question to ask is: are you in control of your identity and where your private information lands due to RFID deployment?

If you are confident RFID is insecure you reserve the right to demand more privacy provisions, especially if it's a legal mandate and you are required to pay for it.

c/o WiFi PlanetThe presence of an RFID tag in U.S. passport cards has raised privacy concerns, but government officials insist the technology is safe--and that the efficiency it adds at land borders is worth the risk.

By the time WHTI went into effect on June 1st of this year, requiring Americans to present passport books, passport cards, or EDLs when crossing land borders into the United States, over a million RFID-enhanced passport cards had already been issued. While WHTI itself isn’t new, its implementation for land borders was delayed two years ago in order to allow for further testing of passport card technology.

It’s important to note that there’s a key difference between e-passports(passport books) and passport cards. While passport cards use vicinity RFID (EPC Gen 2) technology, which can be read at distances of up to 30 feet, e-passports use ISO 14443 contactless smart card tech with a read range of a few inches. To compensate for their readibility (and therefore hackability) at a distance, passport cards only transmit an ID number that relates back to information stored in a secure central database, while e-passports store and transmit much more detailed information about the passport holder.

According to Randy Vanderhoof, executive director of the Smart Card Alliance, that difference was key to the selection of the two technologies. “The electronic passport was built knowing that it was going to store secure information like a person’s name, city of issuance, passport number, image of the person… and therefore they chose a more secure chip technology to protect that information—whereas the passport card was designed to be a static identifier to a central database, with no personal information stored in the chip itself,” he says.

Vanderhoof contends that the government’s decision to use the longer-range EPC Gen 2 technology in passport cards was a mistake. “The decision to trade speed over security and privacy, I think, was a poor decision on the part of the program managers under WHTI—but they repeatedly defended the decision because of the traffic flows through the land borders and the fact that they needed something that could be read from great distances,” he says.

Still, Paul Hunter, technical lead for the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative at U.S. Customs and Border Protection, insists that the time savings provided by the passport cards are considerable. “We can actually read the documents as they’re approaching the booth…which means, instead of handing a document to an officer and him swiping it or manually typing in data, the data’s already there, and now he can focus on the person, and he can focus on the conveyance…it saves six to eight seconds per person,” he says.

And at a land border, Hunter says, time is of the essence. “We’re talking over 100 million crossings a year,” he says. “Those six to eight seconds actually are very significant. We’ve done time and motion studies where we’ve actually measured the time it takes to take the document, to bring it into the booth, to either manually type or swipe and then wait for the results—and if you eliminate all that, you are actually on average saving between six to eight seconds.”

What’s more, Hunter says, the same technology has already been in use for over ten years in the government’s SENTRI and NEXUS trusted traveler programs. “And we have not had one reported incident of somebody skimming that data and using it for nefarious purposes…the reality is, it’s just a number,” he says. “And we further mitigate that by making sure the data that’s associated with that is in a secure back-end database.”

Ultimately, Michael Holly, chief of consular affairs/international affairs at the U.S. Department of State, says Chris Paget’s interception of the passport card’s data is no reason for concern. “Mr. Paget actually was doing nothing more than what we intended to have happen…the card, if powered by a reader, will give off the ID number, which is simply a pointer to the data that we share with the Department of Homeland Security,” he says.

But Paget himself, now president and CTO of the security research firm H4RDW4RE, says that ID number shouldn’t be so easily accessible. “You shouldn’t necessarily think of it as low-risk just because it’s a number,” he says. “Your social security number is just a number. Your credit card number is just a number. It’s the meaning that’s attached to those numbers that makes it risky—and in this instance, it’s an identifier for a person, so any time you see that identifier, you can be certain that you’re seeing that same person.”

One possible solution, Paget says, would be to add an on/off switch to the passport card, as has been suggested by Dr. Ann Cavoukian,Information and Privacy Commissioner for the Canadian province of Ontario. Paget says it’s simply a matter of adding “a button on the card that you have to physically squeeze to turn the tag on, at which point it can be read—so it completely negates the need for shielding…because the tag is off until you actually want it to be turned on.”

The larger point, Paget says, is that RFID needs to be approached with the same caution as the Internet—both, essentially, are simply untrusted networks that move bits of data from point a to point b. “There’s no reason why RFID cannot have equivalent security to something like SSH or SSL that we use on the Internet all the time…I’m certainly not against RFID as a technology: I think it’s got great potential, but there needs to be a lot more security involved in the design of the systems,” he says.

**CALL SENATE NOW!** EMERGENCY ALERT PART 1 - STOP S.1261 THE PASS ACT

Link: http://www.livefreeradio.net/index.php/call-senate-now-emergency-alert-part-1-s

Hi all,
This is one of my pet peeves, so I have to forward you the information as I get it. You want to Live Free? Tell it to those who are supposed to be representing you .

While you are calling to stop CAP & Trade, you may as well call about this issue too.

TAKE ACTION SPEAK UP NOW.

**CALL SENATE NOW!** EMERGENCY ALERT PART 1 - STOP S.1261 THE PASS ACT

"Mark of the Beast" - Stop 'The Pass Act' S. 1261

We need to keep the heat on all this week, it is time to start the next round of calls. They will be emptying out the voicemail boxes and be back to work this morning, keep burning up the lines!

This is an EMERGENCY ACTION ALERT to stop S.1261, The Pass Act which is worse than Real ID. We need to contact all the members of the Senate Committee for Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs to kill this before it gets to the Senate floor.


Tell them:

1. We are opposed to Real ID and the PASS Act
2. We are opposed to being enrolled in a Biometric Identification System
3. We don't want Social Security Numbers in our DMV databases
4. No RFID chips in our Driver's Licences
5. No federal intervention with the issuance of our State driver's licenses
6. We are not willing to trade our freedom for security.

All of these actions are unconstitutional and a direct attack on our civil liberties and our unalienable rights.

This ID is a GLOBAL BIOMETRIC IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM (see this video for more details: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kE8xDMokpM ) and is a direct attack on our national security.

This will take you 16 minutes (one minute for each committee member) see their contact info:

Just Last week, Rep Jim Guest of Missouri's Hard work paid off. The state senate passed Jim's measure without any opposition.

However, the Governor of Missouri has not signed the legislation, so you must call him and ask him to sign the bill.

Call the Missouri Governor at 573-751-3222

Tell him to sign HB 361 the anti- Real ID legislation

The fight is still on in NC in PA and other states as well. Minnesota has also passed anti Real ID legislation.

To Date a total of 29 states have either introduced or passed legislation to oppose the Real ID / National ID Card / Enhanced Drivers' License or whatever else they want to call it.

It just goes to show that there is hope when people stand up and let their voices be heard in their state legislatures.

DHS to RENAME Real ID

DHS to RENAME Real ID


April 24, 2009

North Carolinains Agianst Real ID
www.ncard.info

info@ncard.info


I know many of you have heard the big news today regarding the Real ID. "Obama, Congress to revisit Real ID" or even better "Napolitano working to repeal Real ID Act."

Now we can all celebrate, victory is ours! Not quite. You see, you have to read beyond headlines and read the entire story. The Real ID is not going to be repealed, if it is it will be in name only and called something else, perhaps Enhanced Drivers License.

Just read one paragraph from the first article mentioned and you will see it plain and clear.

"We've been, over the last weeks, meeting with governors of both parties to look at a way to repeal Real ID and substitute something else that…accomplishes some of the same goals. And we hope to announce something on that soon," Napolitano said. As governor of Arizona, Napolitano signed a bill prohibiting the state from complying with Real ID; she now oversees the program.



They want to substitute it with something else that meets the same goals. It is still going to be just as invasive and most likely just as costly as the Real ID Act in terms of price, privacy, security and in violation of the first, fourth and tenth amendments of the US constitution.

Nearly 30 states have passed resolutions or legislation to not comply with the Real ID while some like New York and Michigan have gone to enhanced drivers Licenses using a Real ID system similar to what the state department uses to create passports. Never mind that on March 13, 2009 it was reported Post-9/11 reforms don't stop passport fakery. I should also add the as Arizona Governor, Napolitano made certain her state rejected the Real ID while being one of the first to accept the Enhanced Drivers License that is Real ID compliant. Fortunately, we have had states like Missouri and Oregon recently pass legislation to prevent compliance with the Real ID as well. Missouri's bill introduced by Representative Jim Guest still needs to pass in the Seante but will be one of the strongest anti Real ID bill's introduced to date.

A national id is a national id, no matter what kind of name you give it. When your information flows though data hubs controlled by the Federal Government, it is a national id. If you are unable to enter a federal building or fly on a plane without one, it is a national id.

Please stay focused and know that the fight has just begun.

GOD'S WORD FOR TODAY
Psalm 19:1-4 (King James Version)

1The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

2Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge.

3There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

4Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,
