April 2014 Begins the enforcement of the Real ID Act 2005 Constitutional Alliance – This is no April Fools Joke

Biometric identification for nearly all citizens is here.  I tried to stop this for years, but failed.

From Mark at the Constitutional Alliance:

To all:

This month is the first month in the enforcing of the Real ID Act 2005.
The Constitutional Alliance has published a new article today explaining the enforcement as it will play out this year and subsequent years.  You can read the article by visiting www.constitutionalalliance.org 
If you did not take the time to read the previous article “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” you should when visiting our web-site.
It is sad, actually pitiful when lawmakers do not take the time to read legislation before voting on that legislation.  The Constitutional Alliance has taken the time to provide citizens with analysis of Comprehensive Immigration Reform.  If citizens do not take the time to learn about legislation congress is considering and in this case the senate has already passed, what does that say about each of us?
Please share this email with everyone you are in contact with and ask those people to do the same.
Thank you,
Mark

Setting the record straight on DHS and license plate tracking

Last week the internet was ablaze with reports of the Dept. of Homeland InSecurity contracting to obtain license plate tracking information, and then the subsequent canceling of request to contract.  Contrary to what many are thinking, that was not a victory for we the people.

It seems as if many people are under the mistaken impression that we dodged a surveillance-bullet when DHS withdrew this solicitation. We didn’t. A national plate tracking database exists, run by Vigilant Solutions, and it is widely used by law enforcement nationwide. The company is currently aggressively defending in court its ability to track anyone it wants, however it wants. If you’d like to see which agencies have access to its rapidly growing database, you can click here and scroll through the drop down menu. Vigilant has helpfully provided a list for all to peruse.

Britain’s GCHQ guide to Online Covert Action

It has long been an open secret that U.S. and other government     agencies have been spreading disinformation and misdirection among     dissident groups, including various “patriot myths” designed to     disrupt activists and prevent them from making competent efforts.     One of the just-released documents by Edward Snowden includes the     British manual for doing that, which is shared with its allies. See     http://21stcenturywire.com/2014/02/25/snowden-training-guide-for-gchq-nsa-agents-infiltrating-and-disrupting-alternative-media-online/

So the next time you receive word from some “patriot” for actions     that are too simple, obvious, direct, and appealing, the odds are     high that is coming from a government agent.

How to stop license plate tracking

There is a simple way to solve this problem.  All a State has to do is repeal the plate requirement for motor vehicles.  Some States are talking about cutting water off to the NSA.  Why should people be tagged like cattle when they travel?  Cut the plates off, problem solved.  Instead the Tennessee General Assembly is looking to steal more money by upping seat belt fines.  More of that tough of crime garbage from Republicans.

Letter to Senator Overbey regarding SB1849 4th Amendment Protection Act

Much more detailed information about the NSA is available that what you see below, but I’ve been short on time; therefore, I put this together regarding Senator Campfield’s SB1849 4th Amendment Protection Act.  I do not expect Senator Overbey to stand against the NSA and for the privacy of we the people.  He has never championed freedom, but I am willing to be pleasantly surprised.

Senator Overbey,

Support Senator Campfield’s 4th Amendment Protection Act.  The federal government is out of control, and the NSA is one of many ABC organizations that the federal government has failed to reign in.

Do you seriously trust Barack Obama to reign in the NSA?  In case you need a refresher, here are 545 Examples of Obama’s Lying, Lawbreaking, Corruption, & Cronyism

Listen to NSA Whistleblower Thomas Drake here: http://www.bcpublicrecord.com/?p=4644

The 4th amendment is already being trashed with domestic enemy Commissioner of Dept. of Safety and Homeland Insecurity Bill Gibbons teaming up with the feds for VIRP.

The Washington Post reports that the black budget costs $52.6 Billion a year, but that’s a conservative estimate when the Dept. of Homeland Security has admitted that it doesn’t know how much it’s spending on Fusion Centers.

Tennessee has already wasted $200 million expanding the police state.  http://www.bcpublicrecord.com/?p=1150

This situation has gotten so out of control that Electronic Service Providers can’t even tell their lawyers what big snooping government wants.

Fusion center director: We don’t spy on Americans, just anti-government Americans.  Right, except who defines who is anti-government?  http://rt.com/usa/fusion-center-director-spying-070/

The US doesn’t even make the top 10 best countries to live in.

Does that come as a surprise given the ever expanding police state?  I can provided hundreds of links to stories about police state expansion, police brutality, illegal spying and privacy violations if you want more.

Metadata collecting, parallel construction, loosely defined terms and flat out tyranny are taking place within the NSA and the federal government.  It’s time to stand up and support the rights of the people against an out of control reckless federal government.

Let freedom ring!

Whistleblowing the Whistleblowers?

This article raises a lot of questions that need to be answered.  It will be interesting to see how this all develops.

The Black Budget Costs $52.6 Billion

I suspect that the cost is much higher.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/special/national/black-budget/

This coming Tuesday Nov. 5th, I will give a presentation on Fusion Centers, discussing the REAL ID Act of 2005 and biometrics to the Smoky Mt. Tea Party Patriots at the Blount County Library at 6:30 PM.  Come out and learn about the surveillance police state.

The scathing U. S. Senate Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations report is available here.  As usual Congress did nothing with this information.
