Call Now: Tell Congress to Reject CISPA -52 hours left to stop CISPA

Call Now: Tell Congress to Reject CISPA

The House is about to vote on the "cybersecurity" bill known as CISPA, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act. Despite recent amendments, CISPA still features dangerously vague language that could put your personal information in the hands of military organizations like the National Security Agency.

While CISPA passed through the House last year, it failed to be enacted after a veto threat. This year's bill fails to solve the fundamental privacy and civil liberties problems with the misguided law. Please speak out! We’re asking individuals to call Representatives and follow up with a tweet.

Click here if you’re not in the United States.
Suggested script:

Hello, my name is [YOUR NAME] and I am a constituent of [Congressperson's name].

Please oppose H.R.624, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, also known as CISPA. It is a misguided bill that violates my privacy. I believe that the right cybersecurity solution does not involved sacrificing the privacy rights of Internet users.

Thank you for your consideration, and for acting against this dangerous bill.

Spread the word!

Excellent! Now that you've made the call, use our Twitter tool to tell key members of Congress to stand up for your privacy and vote NO on CISPA and to help spread the word.

House Votes Today to Legalize Warrantless Wiretaps

House Votes Today to Legalize Warrantless Wiretaps
From Devvy Kidd

Activist Post

Only days after a NSA whistleblower has sounded the alarm about the government's massive spying campaign on American citizens, the U.S. Congress who swore an oath to uphold the Constitution are set to legalize warrantless wiretaps with the reauthorization of the secretive FISA Amendments Act.

This legislation is the perfect example of why there is no difference between the political parties. Their rhetoric may differ when it's politically expedient, but when push comes to shove they always vote for tyranny.

Obama said he was against the Patriot Act to get elected because the majority of Americans opposed it, but then he supported its extension not for one year, but for four years. Obama repeatedly attacked Bush's warrantless wiretaps as unconstitutional, but now he's expected to sign this 5-year reauthorization once the unprincipled legislators rubber stamp it today.

It seems the only time Congress acts in a bipartisan way is when they're trampling the Constitutional rights of Americans.

ACLU wrote this about the legislation:

It permits the government to get year-long orders from the secret Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court to conduct dragnet surveillance of Americans’ international communications—including phone calls, emails, and internet records—for the purpose of collecting foreign intelligence. The orders need not specify who is going to be spied on or even allege that the targets did anything wrong. The only guarantees that the FAA gives are that no specific American will be targeted for wiretapping and that some (classified) rules about the use of intercepted information will be followed.

After four years, you’d hope that some basic information or parameters of such a massive spying program would be divulged to the public, or at least your rank-and-file member of Congress, but they haven’t...

Can you believe that 435 members of Congress who have sworn to uphold the Constitution are about to vote on a sweeping intelligence gathering law without this basic information?

If you hear politicians say that FISA actually provides meaningful oversight, they can't possibly know that due to the secrecy of the approval process. But you may remind them that every single secret surveillance request was approved in 2011 indicating a rubber stamp approval.

Don't be a person of good conscience who remains silent. Call your Congressperson and tell them to vote NO.

The hysteria over Obama/Soetoro's new Executive order

The hysteria over Obama/Soetoro's new Executive-order
by Devvy Kidd
March 18, 2012

I must have received 200 emails about the EO issued by the putative president declaring martial law is on the way and no election in November.

This one is typical:

"This Obama EO has gone way beyond Communism or a Police State ! This is total insanity ! It's done. We waited ourselves into tyrannical oblivion."

Many read the EO and are concerned as we should be from anything generated by the Red House.

When I first read it, I thought Soetoro didn't write it because he doesn't really concern himself with much except playing basketball, raising money, his Wednesday night music sessions or Hollyweird friends stopping in, and second, it's beyond his abilities in my humble opinion.

In any event, WND has come out with an article about it since the panic has spread like flash mobs:

Executive-order panic: Martial law in U.S.?

http://www.wnd.com/2012/03/executive-order-panic-martial-law-in-america/

"As it turns out, Obama’s executive order is nearly identical to EO 12919, issued by President Clinton on June 7, 1994, which itself was an amendment to EO 10789, issued in 1958 by President Eisenhower, and which in fact, was later amended by EO 13286, issued in 2003 by George W. Bush."

Rest at link above.

As for the issue of martial law, I highly recommend people read the column below by Dr. Edwin Vieira, Ph.D., J.D.

I was under several misconceptions about martial law until I read Edwin's usual scholarly analysis.

Those sending out emails it's time to get your guns locked and loaded, a coup is underway, etc., should get the facts about martial law before they blow a gasket and do something foolish.

E-Verify: De Facto National ID and the End of Privacy

E-Verify: De Facto National ID and the End of Privacy
By John W. Whitehead
9/16/2011

As technology grows more sophisticated and the American government and its corporate allies further refine their methods of keeping tabs on citizens, those of us who treasure privacy increasingly find ourselves engaged in a struggle to maintain our freedoms in the midst of the modern surveillance state.

The latest attack on our right to anonymity and privacy comes stealthily packaged in the form of so-called job protection legislation. Introduced by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) in June 2011, H.R. 2885 (formerly H.R. 2164), the "Legal Workforce Act," is being marketed as a way to fight illegal immigration and "open up millions of jobs for unemployed Americans and legal immigrants." However, this proposed federal law is really little more than a Trojan horse, a backdoor attempt by the powers-that-be to inflict a de facto National ID card on the American people.

Created under the auspices of securing the borders and preventing illegal immigrants from being hired for "American" jobs, E-Verify challenges the rights of the individual, the rights of labor and the rights of industry. As such, this is not a left or right issue. Anyone who values civil liberties should be alarmed. In fact, E-Verify is being opposed by various civil liberties groups such as the ACLU, American Library Association, The Rutherford Institute, Liberty Coalition and others.

If approved by Congress, this legislation would make the federal government the final authority on who gets hired by American businesses and in the process create a bureaucratic nightmare for already over-burdened and over-regulated small business owners. In a nutshell, H.R. 2885 requires all employers to submit potential employees' names, Social Security numbers and other data to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for authorization before the employees can start work. The data would then be run through E-Verify, a government-run database and employment identification verification system.

In other words, the E-Verify system would require all those wanting to be employed by American companies to register the credentials of their citizenship in a government database. What this means, of course, is that in order to be able to verify an applicant's legitimacy, the government would first have to build a massive database to store the biographical information of the entire working population in the United States--a huge undertaking with numerous pitfalls and security flaws, as we have seen with many other government databases. If you think unemployment is a problem now, just wait until your employment hinges on getting government clearance. Under this legislation, if a worker's information is incorrect in E-Verify, he or she can't work until the problem is resolved.

Furthermore, due to the sensitive information contained in the database, it would be a huge target for hackers and identity thieves, while doing little to curb the flow of illegal immigration or illegal immigrants getting jobs. Indeed, with a stolen or faked identity, anyone could bypass the system and secure employment.

This legislation poses even greater threats to privacy, free speech and free association and potentially hinders Americans' ability to travel freely. Because the E-Verify system would apply to everyone eligible to work in the United States and will grow to include biometrics such as fingerprints, DNA and iris scans, it will be used for a host of other purposes by the intelligence community, law enforcement and corporate America.

Private employers will become extensions of the government in that they will eventually be required to verify whether employees are delinquent in the payment of federal, state or local taxes, in compliance with child support or alimony decrees, on a terrorist watch list or convicted or even accused of a crime. Employers, thus, would be enlisted as de facto law enforcement officers for the federal government. Furthermore, errors in the verification process would be practically immune from timely legal redress in violation of constitutional tenets of due process.

Recently, the prohibition in H.R. 2885 on using the E-Verify database for purposes other than employment verification was replaced with a new section that allows the system to be used to "protect critical infrastructure." That term is broadly defined and it's not clear what this would mean in practice--whether screening air travelers or controlling access to federal facilities--but it clearly signals a huge expansion of the program. In one paragraph in the legislation the government states that E-Verify will not be used just for employment but also can be used for verifying identify for national security. What this means is that American citizens would have to have their information correct in E-Verify not just to get a job but also potentially if they need to access "critical infrastructure"--i.e., any kind of public transportation. Ironically, this language comes right after the paragraph saying there will be no National ID card.

Despite assurances to the contrary, E-Verify will become a de facto National ID system. Such a database with vast pools of personal information directly tied to individuals shared across a multitude of government agencies would give the government an alarming amount of control over the average citizen. If government officials so chose, they could easily track any person who had registered in the E-Verify system for whatever reason.

Not only will government agencies know everything about American citizens, but private corporations will become policemen for this system. The E-Verify system--part of a broader trend in American politics, namely, the collusion of government and corporate interests--will allow government and corporate officials to repress dissidents and suspects simply by restricting their access to basic services. Once all of your information is tied together and placed in one grand database, any government or corporate agency can wreak havoc on your life. You might try to buy groceries only to find that your credit card has been denied. You might apply for a job, at ten, twenty, fifty corporations only to find that, despite your being very qualified, there just isn't any room for you at the company. Without a job, you might be forced to tap into the welfare system, only to find that your application was denied. Your property might be confiscated. When you try to move somewhere else and start anew, you might find you can't board the plane because you're on a no-fly list. Make no mistake, these are the tactics of a totalitarian society.

However, the idea of singling out and "identifying" individuals for the sake of national security is nothing new. National identity cards also carry with them a historic risk of oppression and persecution, as they have been used to identify and track ethnic, racial and religious groups and have facilitated oppression and persecution against these groups. And as recently as the 1990s, identity cards played an instrumental role in one of the worst genocides of the twentieth century, second only perhaps to the Holocaust.

With the introduction of an identity card that contains information such as ethnic origin, government agencies will be able to identify people on the basis of race or religion with considerable ease. For example, in the months following the 9/11 attacks, Muslim men from Arab or South Asian countries were rounded up on the basis of religion and ethnicity and detained indefinitely in the United States, often without access to an attorney or a judge. Imagine how much more far-reaching that government detention program might have been with a National ID in place.

Various laws have been enacted over time to guard against unreasonable intrusions by the government into our private lives. One such law is the Privacy Act, which was passed by Congress in 1974 and prohibits the government from forming a database. However, although the fear was that such a database could constitute an invasion of privacy, the law only prevents the government from creating a database, not accessing an already existing database.

At the time the Privacy Act was passed, Congress had no reason to suspect that private corporations would ever have the desire or means to create such databases. The emergence of data collection corporations, however, has enabled government intelligence and police agencies to circumvent the law and gain information on private citizens with the click of a button. Although such tactics clearly contradict the spirit of privacy laws intended to guard against government abuse, it is technically legal for the government to gain access to these databases. Government officials have taken full advantage of this loophole. Due to the fact that these databases are owned and operated by private corporations, they are relatively unregulated and fall outside the scrutiny of privacy watchdog groups. Reports of security breaches at numerous data brokerage companies only serve to fan concerns about the lack of oversight and regulation.

Rest assured that were Congress to approve this E-Verify legislation, it would constitute the ultimate end-run around the Privacy Act and open the door to a National ID. Thus, we have reached a crossroads. Either we limit the reach and power of the government (often in collusion with corporate power) or privacy as we have known it will become extinct.

Facial Recognition is a Threat to Your Privacy

Facial Recognition is a Threat
to Your Privacy:


A Top Privacy
Issue of Our Time

San Diego, CA, August 25,
2011

Imagine you’re walking down the street and a stranger snaps
your photo with his smartphone. He uses a facial recognition app and within
minutes, he knows your name, age, where you were born, and your Social Security
number. Think it’s a scene from the movie Minority
Report
? Think again.

It’s Possible.

Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University combined three
technologies – facial recognition software, cloud computing, and social
networks – to identify people both online and offline. The team performed three
separate experiments
:

  1. People using pseudonyms on an online dating site were
    identified by comparing Facebook profile photos, which are publicly displayed,
    to the profiles on the dating site. Using facial recognition software to match
    up the photos, 10 percent of the dating site’s users were identified.

  2. Students walking on campus were identified by comparing
    real-time photos taken with a webcam to Facebook profile photos. The facial
    recognition software identified the students 31 percent of the time.

  3. Using only a photo of a person’s face and information
    publicly available online, the researchers figured out the person’s birth date,
    personal interests, and Social Security number.

Many individuals share a tremendous amount of information about
themselves online. As facial recognition software improves, it will inevitably
be easier to link this personal information to you just by taking your photo.

The Threat to Your
Privacy.

Facial recognition technology – especially as the technology
becomes more sophisticated – may be one of the gravest privacy threats of our
time. It has the potential to remove the anonymity we expect in crowds and most
public places. There are the obvious “chilling effects” it could have on
political demonstrations and speech, concerns being monitored by civil
liberties advocates like the ACLU,
EPIC, and EFF.  However, this technology will also very
likely be used in greater capacity in the commercial sector to further target
consumers for advertising and discriminatory pricing purposes.

According to
an article published recently by the Los Angeles Times
, several companies
have already launched, or plan to launch soon, facial recognition technology
that will be used for in-store digital displays and kiosks to make product
suggestions based on the demographics gleaned from your face.  This might include your sex, your age range,
and your race or ethnicity.  

However, the article fails to mention the possibility that
facial recognition software will likely be used for more than demographic
targeting. In his book Niche
Envy
, Joseph Turow, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania, explains
how companies are using increasingly sophisticated market segmentation methods
to offer different prices to different people, a practice known as price
discrimination. The more detailed the profile a company can build on you, the
more accurately it can estimate how much you are willing to spend on a product.

Professor Turow focused primarily on online data collection,
but as the Carnegie Mellon study illustrates, facial recognition technology
makes it possible to connect your offline identity with your online identity
without necessarily obtaining your consent. This may allow for price
discrimination the moment you walk into a store. As facial recognition
technology advances and the number of consumers using social media continues to
increase, it’s not far-fetched to imagine a scenario where, for example, the
kiosk mentioned above identifies you based on information found online. What if
you then receive not only product recommendations, but also prices for those
products based on who it thinks you are? The possibility of such applications for
facial recognition technology are disturbing, to say the least. 

What You Can Do.

We believe  individuals must have control over their personal
information.  This includes who has your
information, how it is kept, and what can be done with it.
 Facial recognition software can enable companies
to identify and target you without your knowledge or permission. Privacy laws
in the U.S. have not kept pace with technology, and we are aware of no laws specifically
governing commercial use of facial recognition technology.  This is unless, of course, a company states
in a privacy policy that it does not use this technology when in fact it does.

Here are three things you can do to fight for your privacy:

  1. Educate yourself. The most important thing you can do is learn
    more about the technology and its privacy implications, so that you are an
    educated and informed consumer. To stay abreast of facial recognition and other
    emerging privacy issues, visit our
    Privacy Today webpage
    .

  2. Support legislation that defends privacy. Write to your elected representatives
    to ask for stronger privacy protections against facial recognition
    technology and other emergent technologies that you believe may be used to
    invade your privacy. Many privacy laws are created on the state level, so stay
    informed and vote for better privacy protection.

  3. Avoid companies with poor privacy practices. When possible,
    don't do business with companies that you believe collect unnecessary
    personal information or fail to protect that information. Take your money
    elsewhere - and let the companies know why.

Don't Vote for a debt ceiling increase!

Posted by James Leroy Wilson

Before this message is through, we'll be announcing DownsizeDC.org's NEW Agenda campaign. It's a campaign that is so important that it will join, in priority, the Read the Bills Act and the One Subject at a Time Act.

But first, let me tell you about the greatest opportunity we've ever had, in our lifetimes, to balance the budget and actually Downsize DC. Imagine...

It's the fourth quarter, with two minutes to go. Your favorite team has the lead, the ball, and four downs. The other team has no timeouts. You know the quarterback must "snap and kneel" a couple of times, and you win the game.

But then, the quarterback calls the count, takes the snap, turns around and heaves the ball backwards into his own end zone. The entire offense just stands there, watching as the defensive players race down to recover the ball -- and they do. They get a touchdown! You lose the game.

That scenario is absurd. Who would throw obvious victory away? The Washington Elephants would.

For decades, they've made an art out of tearing defeat from the clenched jaws of victory.

This time, the story is that the Washington Elephants, better known as the Republican members of Congress, are EAGER to...

* Continue massive deficit spending for years,
* Increase the debt ceiling by trillions, and
* Constitutionally guarantee we have a Leviathan State, forever.

And the worst part of it is, YOU might be encouraging them to throw away the game! 

Right now, all "good Republicans" on Capitol Hill, and so many of our normal, organizational allies in the budget battles, have signed on to a plan called Cut, Cap, and Balance.

* Cut in Washington-speak, doesn't mean actual cuts. It means that the Democrats must agree to reduce the increases planned for their favored social programs.
* Cap, to these Republicans, means a spending limit law for future budgets. That sounds good, until you realize that in exchange for spending CAPS in the FUTURE, they'll increase the debt ceiling CAP in the PRESENT. 
* Balance means an amendment to the Constitution, which permanently enshrines 18% of GDP as the size of our federal government.

Ratifying a Balanced Budget Amendment is hard. It's a diversion. And it isn't necessary. The Washington Elephants, who claim they understand their election mandate to tackle the debt problem, are throwing away the game.

All they have to do is take a knee. Quite literally, they have to "do nothing." That is, &quot;Don't Vote"... for a debt ceiling increase.

That's it!

Heck, given that they control an overwhelming majority in the House, it shouldn't even come up for a vote. And they have the numbers to stop it in the Senate with a filibuster.

Isn't that easier than a Balanced Budget Amendment? After all, capping the debt for good would mean a balanced budget.

Cap the Debt = An Instant End to Deficit Spending

Just like that, cuts would need to be made. Lots of cuts. But it's not going to happen.

Not because it shouldn't. Not because it couldn't. There's a Downsize DC consensus right now. The public is in favor of a cap.

That still leaves an exorbitant amount collected in taxes. Could we attain sufficient support for a more-Constitutional budget? I think that an organization with the right plan and the necessary resources could build that support. 

Interestingly, there's only one national, activist organization left holding the line (joined by just a couple media figures). DownsizeDC.org has been sending messages for several weeks now, saying "No deal. Cap the Debt." Here are a few examples from five recent Dispatches...

* Why A Debt Ceiling Is Better Than A Balanced Budget Amendment   
* Cap the Debt: How Congress Can Learn From Truman   
* Do You Want a Theoretical Balanced Budget Many Years from Now, or a Real One Today?  

* How Deficits Are Making You Poorer  
* "Cut, Cap, and Balance" Means Leviathan State, Forever

We've sent so many messages on this subject that we've fatigued our subscriber list. This month, we have...

* Fewer new people joining us than we've had in years
* Fewer messages being sent to Congress, as well

Politicians respond to pressure. Politicians respond to pressure. POLITICIANS RESPOND TO PRESSURE. Yet...

The pressure they're getting is to let the ball go -- to give up their victory. All our normal allies are in favor of Cut, Cap, and Balance.

They need "encouragement" to persuade them to do the right thing. And now, that's YOUR job!

We merely need to get enough Americans, who already agree with us, to work with DownsizeDC.org -- now the ONLY national, activist organization left saying,

&quot;Don't Raise the Debt Ceiling"  

We provide the Educate the Powerful System so you can give your "representatives" on Capitol Hill their "orders."

* But have you been using it, regularly?
* Have you been sharing these messages with others, and encouraging them to join DownsizeDC.org?   
* Have you given money to Downsize DC yet this year? 

Most days, we provide a sample letter. But there are sample letters in each of the recent Dispatches referenced above. You can write your own letter, or borrow one of those.

Then, you could forward this message to others. But it would be FAR more powerful if you would make a PERSONAL APPEAL, to your friends, for a balanced budget NOW, by "taking a knee." Tell them how they can make that happen using the proprietary tools we provide at DownsizeDC.org. Let's overwhelm Congress.

And, if you're not currently a monthly pledger, please recognize that the stand we're taking right now is already being seen as confrontational -- we've already been accused of undermining folks we normally consider allies. This isn't personal. We still like most of those people, but we respectfully disagree. And that hits us financially, and that is personal.

In order to keep proclaiming this message and providing these tools, we NEED you to join us as a monthly pledger, for whatever amount you can afford, starting at only $1. We have pledgers who give $250 and $200 each month. You can choose your level of support.

But oh, how I wish we could do more. I'd love to spread this message far and wide. That's why we have...

* secured the domain name, www.CapTheDebt.com
* created a web button/banner that you can place on your website or blog - go here to see it and obtain the code     
* launched a CapTheDebt Facebook page, to which we encourage you becoming a Fan

And now...

* we're moving "Cap the Debt" to the Downsize DC Agenda. We're making it one of our legislative priorities

What could we do if we had money to fight this battle? Could we take it to the press? Right now, I'm obsessed with just paying the rent! But if we had a donor, reading this message right now, ready to supply $10,000 or more, we'd launch advertising and media alerts. We'd jump even deeper into the fray. The more this person gave, the more we'd do. This issue is that important. Are you that person?

If you've...

* sent a message. Thank you.
* appealed to friends and recruited them to send letters with you. Thank you.
* pledged or contributed recently. Thank you.
* done all of these things then, thank you, thank you, and thank you!

But if you're not doing these things, here is a moment to act -- perhaps the best opportunity we've ever had to Downsize DC.

Jim Babka
President
DownsizeDC.org, Inc.

P.S. Apparently, not all of the Washington Elephants liked the game plan! Nine Republicans voted against Cut, Cap, and Balance on Tuesday evening.

Two of them were Presidential candidates, Ron Paul and Michele Bachmann. Paul said he was tired of the "status quo" and the pretense of calling some programs "discretionary" and others "non-discretionary." Paul suggested that everything needed to be on the table. Bachmann said that default is completely unnecessary and a scare tactic. She also said that any proposal that doesn't repeal Obamacare isn't serious.

Paul and Bachmmann were joined by Mack of Florida, Broun of Georgia, Rohrabacher of California, Jones of N.C., DesJarlais of Tennessee, Canseco  of Texas, and Griffith of Virginia. We thank and congratulate these members. If you live in their district, you should let them know you appreciate their stand.

Army Corp Gun Ban Repeal Vote Coming This Week in the House

Legislation Will Protect Gun Rights on Army Corps of Engineers Land

Wednesday, 13 July 2011 12:10

Vote on Pro-gun Amendment Could Come in the House This Week

Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) plans to offer an amendment this week protecting gun rights on land controlled by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Currently, guns are prohibited on Corps land, even when gun possession is otherwise allowed by state law. Rep. Gosar’s legislation would simply remove federal restrictions and allow for the law of the states (in which such land is located) to govern firearms possession.

The Gosar amendment, modeled after the Recreational Lands Self-Defense Act (H.R. 1865) introduced by pro-gun Rep. Bob Gibbs (R-OH), is similar to a 2009 law repealing the gun ban on National Park Service land. Army Corps of Engineers land was not part of that bill, something the Corps was quick to point out after that law took affect.

The Corps said, in a statement: “Public Law 111-024 does not apply to Corps projects or facilities . . . [and the Army Corps] will continue to prohibit loaded concealed weapons on Corps properties regardless of the new law and notwithstanding any contrary provisions of state law.”

The amendment will reverse the Corps’ decision and remedy the “oversight” of the lands bill.

“The Recreational Lands Self-Defense Act is a bipartisan effort that seeks to correct this oversight and restore Second Amendment rights to law-abiding citizens while they are legally camping, hunting, and fishing on the 11.7 million acres of Army Corps recreational property,” Rep. Gibbs said.

Rep. Gosar notes that “this amendment will restore continuity to federal lands and ensure that constitutional rights are consistently protected.”

Nationally, the Army Corps of Engineers controls 400 lake and river projects, 90,000 campsites and 4,000 miles of trails. A vote on the Gosar amendment could come as early as Thursday.

ACTION: Please contact your Representative and urge him or her to vote YES on the Gosar amendment.

Celebrate Independence Day with a Real Bang
While helping preserve our gun rights for the next generation.

“Be a real American Warrior for gun rights and freedom. Join GOA and sign up as many members as you can.” — Ted Nugent

- Independence Day is now less than a month away, and Americans will soon be celebrating in grand style. Many will spend hundreds of dollars on fireworks — even driving hours away to buy “legal” fireworks from out-of-state.

Others will use the holiday to take their children plinking — exercising their time-honored right to keep and bear arms.

Well, Gun Owners would like to encourage you in these pursuits and remind you that one of the greatest gifts you can give your children is the continued freedom to own your firearms. And you can help preserve these rights by getting others to join GOA, the organization that one Congressman deemed “the pit bull of the Second Amendment.”

To give a gift membership in Gun Owners of America, simply go here.

The $20 fee is a bargain, as you will be signing people up as members in the hardest-hitting gun lobby in Washington, DC, for about the cost of a box of ammo.

For about $1.50 a month, you will help further the gun rights organization — that in the past six months alone — has:

  • Spearheaded the effort to get the U.S. Constitution read on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives — for the first time in history;
  • Led the fight amongst gun organizations to repeal anti-gun ObamaCare;
  • Helped stave off an assault on the Senate filibuster, which has since been used (just recently) to defeat a radical, anti-gun judicial nomination;
  • Worked to pass constitutional “permitless” carry in Wyoming and improve open carry in Florida; and,
  • Appeared on hundreds upon hundreds of media outlets (radio, TV and print).

You know that when it comes to elections, GOA has led the way in getting “freedom fighters” sent to Congress. For example, we were the only gun organization in Washington that backed Rand Paul for Senate. And, boy, are we glad we did, as he has already established himself as a champion for gun rights!

We also worked single-handedly (amongst national gun groups) to challenge Harry Reid, and we came within a whisker of defeating him in last year’s elections. Our opposition to him was recently justified (again) after he worked to defeat Senator Rand Paul’s “no gun registration” amendment which he offered to the PATRIOT Act. GOA helped Paul draft this amendment to keep the ATF from registering 4473’s (the form all purchasers fill out when they buy a firearm from a licensed dealer).

Also, in November of 2010, GOA was the ONLY national gun organization working to defeat Nancy Pelosi’s “Blue Dog” Democrats who were compromising your gun rights away. Our efforts were well worth it as we helped defeat over 30 Blue Dogs and reduced Pelosi to a minority status.

GOA does not compromise on Capitol Hill; and we do not compromise when it comes to getting good representation in the Congress.

So why not give your pro-gun family and friends a gift membership in Gun Owners of America? This would be a great gift for Independence Day or for someone’s birthday or anniversary.

You’ll be increasing the voice of the most active grassroots gun lobby that is constantly on the front lines defending your rights.

The more activists who, like you, send their e-mails and postcards to their legislators … the louder your voice becomes in the halls of Congress.

Again, to give a gift membership in Gun Owners of America, simply click on this link.

Once you click on the above link, fill in the information for your family members or friends. You can then print out a Gift Certificate which you can present to the recipients of your generosity.

Thank you!

The New Cardless National ID

The New—Cardless!—National ID

Posted by Jim Harper

Your chance to comment on a Department of Homeland Security plan to tap into state drivers’ license databases and create a new national ID system expires next week. It’s the groundwork for a cardless national ID, which threatens liberty even more than card-based schemes like REAL ID.

The E-Verify program’s move to merge federal background checks and state driver license data sets the stage for satisfying all three elements of a national ID. (Two years ago, I discussed what constitutes a national ID in some detail.) E-Verify has not satisfied these criteria up to now, but the pieces are coming together quickly.

First, it is national. That is, it is intended to be used throughout the country, and to be nationally uniform in its key elements. If its proponents have their way, E-Verify will indeed soon go national, a requirement on every employer to vet new workers past the federal government’s databases.

Second, its use is either practically or legally required. This is a judgment call, but in two diferent ways, E-Verify appears to meet this element. First, not having data in the E-Verify databases means not having legal work, so “participation” in E-Verify can be fairly called practically required. Second, try to opt out of the system and you will meet a dead end. The program includes no opportunity I know of to refuse participation. It’s legally required if the state or federal governments have got your identity data.

I could be wrong, of course. Interested researchers should try contacting their state motor vehicle bureaus (cc: your state legislators) and ask not to have data about you transferred to the federal government for E-Verify. Please let me know what you learn.

The final “element” of a national ID is that it is used for identification. Up to now, E-Verify has  largely worked by comparing identifiers. (I.e., Does this name match this Social Security number?) The current plan is to tap into state databases for more identifiers: name, date of birth, driver’s license/permit number, and so on. From there, it’s a short ride to gathering drivers’ license photos and biometric descriptors. (E-Verify already uses federally acquired photos in its “Photo Screening Tool.&#8221;) With the inclusion of your driver’s license photo, the E-Verify system will be able to display your picture on the screen of anyone who looks you up, allowing for positive identification.

This is a national identification system. If every employer has to use E-Verify—or even every major employer—it will become the all-purpose security device, used for cashing checks, confirming the name on credit cards, and looking you up at the prescription counter. Of course, it will be used at airport checkpoints. You’ll be screened through E-Verify at entrances to government buildings—maybe private buildings, too. And why not for random, “instant” checks at the subway or bus station? 

Just remember: If you have a tax dispute with the government, the Department of Homeland Security might flag you in the database—or it might de-identify you entirely—until you get right with the government.

Because it’s a database system, you won’t be able to argue your case like you can in the familiar card environment. With a card, at least, you can say, “No, look. This is me. This is my ID card. This is my picture. Give me my prescription.” With E-Verify, the answer will be, “Sorry, you have to talk to DHS or Social Security.” For good reason, I named my paper on electronic employment eligibility verification, “Franz Kafka’s Solution to Illegal Immigration.”

Arguments for the E-Verify system sounding in practicality and common sense do not hold up, but there are also principled reasons to oppose having a government background check system. Using E-Verify, the Department of Homeland Security is rapidly assembling a national ID system that can be converted to boundless uses. In addition to controlling employment, E-Verify can be put to use in regulating access to health care and housing, in gun control and registration, in monitoring travel and lodging—the list goes on and on.

I went through the arguments against having a national identification system in my book, Identity Crisis. In brief, a national ID would strip us of privacy even faster than is already happening, producing formal dossiers and increased surveillance. A national ID would transfer power en masse from individuals to governments. They would administer our rights by controlling the tools we need to navigate a “papers, please” society. A national ID would also be insecure, as it centralizes and homogenizes information assets (identity data) that are more secure if widely dispersed and heterogeneous.

As I noted last week, the federal government cannot and will not implement the REAL ID Act. So it’s on a new tack: E-Verify will soon be the new national ID.
