 It might be time to get our people and our stuff back from Americanized Nazi’s.

I noticed today how much better I would feel about working with local offices if I was merely spared the indignity of their recording my every interaction.  They can’t seem to perform the most rudimentary of actions without fear of being strung up for allowing a potential terrorist an opportunity.  Most of these offices are required to behave towards the public like everyone is a potential terrorist. Everyone they know is a potential terrorist. It’s still just Bob the plumber, and their Mom, but try telling that to the “federal authorities”.

They are equipped with meta tracking software; which pushes them to the discomfort of being inappropriate towards the majority of the public.  I use the word inappropriate because not every orifice of our society should be retrofitted for the National Security aperture. It occurred to me these local officials feel as bored down upon, if not more, as we do.  Due to the nearly inexhaustible demands of the National Security state they are urged to document every jot and tittle of every person’s movement in their immediate society or else.

I think one of the most glaring examples of where excesses of militarized status interferes with local life is our education system.  Children growing up in America are already firmly challenged in their ability to trust themselves and trust others. Their job is to recognize their responsibility to perform in their roles at learning institutions.  However, when the rules are arbitrarily administrated at the end of a gun by SROs, it takes a whole different tone.  If a permanent record is scribbled down in their National Security chart, you get the idea children can’t necessarily be who they are. A mark for throwing a ball when they should have tossed it or turning their head to the right or left against the unspoken wishes of a demoralized teacher.  Zero tolerance of what?  Children? For the crime of existing and being compelled to come to a school?  There are now crimes that aren’t crimes! We all get a vague feeling that we did something wrong.  That is certainly intentional.

The National Security state seems to be creating a subtier of crime where none existed so a certain segment of their employees have data to move around. We now worry about rules that are manufactured to coerce us into doing what the security state wants when no law exists to substantiate their claims. So don’t be surprised when someone with a gun and a security badge shows up and demands that you do something they have no right to ask you to do. They might try to refuse us the right to be where we are doing things that are clearly normal without a need to qualify it with a law.

The DNI expects too much from the innocent. The DoD does not respect the heiros of their charge to protect their citizens from enemies foreign and domestic.  When an agency abuses their potential and invents rules to rob, kill and demoralize otherwise productive decent citizens they become a self-defeating prospect for their own existence. It makes you quite curious about what is going on inside their closed doors.

I suspect, for living with someone who was used by the clandestine state for civil service, they are routinely terrorized and interrogated for the most nominal things and are themselves afraid to look to the right or the left for the paranoia of their bosses.  So I would say we lost the War on Terror before we ever took up arms to make it someone elses issue.  Our government committs acts of terrorism upon themselves every single day as Standard Operating Procedure.

Many active duty, reservists, former and current military dependents recognize patterns of militarism and on-base protocols. They know there is a difference between military life and civilian life.  They know when there is scope creep of operational security when it is applied to civilian networks. Unfortunately, this whole of the United States is being treated like one giant military base, by a handful of agencies.  For the sake of argument, it will not be legal if someone from the National Security blog patrol reads this and decides to correct us all tomorrow, saying, this whole of the United States, is in fact, declared to them a military base. Your person and property now their assets. Resistance is futile. Give up now and it will go easier on you?

That violates the 3rd Amendment in the US bill of Rights.

Now it’s a weird feeling to consider US martial forces occupying their own country, because your grocery store and the mall are not PXs. Surprisingly, for pointing out agenda potential of this I will be shouted at from three different directions the same message, “Be grateful for your security!!”  No. No, because I don’t feel safe.  Why don’t I feel safe?

I don’t feel safe because there are enforcement authorities behaving as if there is a war going on when there is none. Militarists are inserting their agenda into the most benign areas of my life without a discussion, or consent of the governed. I feel as if they are going to continue to barge into my life, my computer and my home to take what is mine so they will have it and I will be left without it.  That is a distinct feeling of insecurity.  So you can’t expect a ‘Thank You’ for undoing what securities were legitimate to expand the range of a military base, illegitmately at that.

The majority of us are not enrolled in any sort of military convention.  We don’t rely on military networks.  We don’t think we are in a war. People selling T-shirts on the beach are not in any kind of war in America.  I’m not at war with anyone. However, when a nation’s military leadership decides you are in a war, unless diverse diplomats and a lawfare army shows up to challenge that assertion, you are, unfortunately, in a war. It’s coming to you.

THE PROBLEM OF UNDECLARED WAR ON US SOIL BY US MILITARY

We cannot reasonably be expected to take military orders when we are not soldiers. There is no kinetic war on US soil, except for what may be maufactured on paper secretly by “experts”.  If they intend to spread the cause of war to us, The People, by way of an offensive to take what is yours to make it theirs, they will start with your dependencies: the safety of your family, your economic flows and your communications networks.  First, they must gather intelligence.

Let’s start with the martial takeover of your Internet interactions. That seems to be the least bloodless.  They have digital eyes quartered in every online store you visit. Daily, they rummage through your mail and listen to your phone calls. It’s not because they need the Intel.  It’s so you will feel owned, intimdated and demoralized.  If you cease to use conventions they spy on, then it’s a temporary win for your peace of mind. It won’t stop their intent.

ALL OUR BASE ARE BELONG TO US ALREADY

I see a problem. It’s not the usual problem other people see with this scenario. It’s the problem that US government networks are themselves compelled to do unnatural and abusive things against the commission of their oath to serve The People.  So the guilt for them is tremendously corrosive. They are forced hands. You can’t expect a whole lot of reason from within. The standard for US military compliance is austerely absolute, even among themselves.  For instance, “Lay down and do not resist,” was rape prevention advice in literature given to their own soldiers working amongst each other.

They are not given good excuses to do things against the US people.  They are urged to comply or face firing, or worse, jail time for refusing a military command.  What’s weirder than threatening a civil servant or a civilian for disobeying a military order when they are not a soldier, with an indefinite sentence in a brig?  This military always behaves as if there is absolutely no one who will defend them if they refuse the US military whatever it is they demand. It’s just not true. That’s a lie. The whole premise is a lie.  It’s a tactical mind game. They mean to defeat you mentally, to minimize your grounded right of refusal, when and if they show up to take what is yours or take you away.

The POTUS can scribble out and sign off 5 EO’s tomorrow; which defy the 3rd Amendment. Every single one will be shut down in a legitimate court.  Militarists have to resort to threatening you, Normal Guy, with a military court system and the peril of being submerged their seemingly bottomless dark state. To the credit of the legitimate courts, we have no small numbers of people who need not comply with an undeclared war on American soil.  They can walk away a free American and not worry about the use of force. They just have to know they can.

Do they still argue that the military MAY disappear anyone in broad daylight? Yes. The NDAA 2012 and the NDRP are still being contested in the courts.

There are definitely people in the press who lick the hands of the military and eat their table scraps because they’re “into power”. They will print propaganda as news; which is legally fake, but seems as real as any Hollywood set. On their propaganda sets they get their cast of expert actors to shake down scapegoats like criminal crash test dummies in courts, to make all the children fearful they are next. This military may take a few more “examples” to shock you with the absoluteness of their propaganda power. They may kill the victim in front of you, and say, “You’re next, if you say anything!”  Sounds a lot like, “Lay down and don’t resist,” to me.

If so, just know that’s their in-house literature. It doesn’t apply to you. Walk away. You’re not a soldier. You’re not in a war on your own land. If you can’t walk away, it’s because you work there.

What is this whole scenario about?  Fear. Intimidation. Power.

Why is this chicanery being levied onto us?  We didn’t think enough of our armed service members and civil servants to place more limits on interagency abuses when we had the chance.  It didn’t get this way overnight. However, it might have had something to do with the fact that we brought over thousands of defeated Nazis, to continue their worst crimes against humanity while the ink was still wet on Truman’s National Security Act.  If a lot of today’s spy complex looks like Nazi policy to you, there’s a good reason for that.

What do we do?  Refuse to be afraid. Don’t submit to unauthorized military force in strange areas of your life like your police departments and your schools.  Support agency watchdogs and get them private legal and physical protection when confronting abuses. Get behind legal contests to those who want to gather endless military intelligence on US citizens as potential targets. Repeal the NDAA indefinite detention clauses. Don’t pick fights you can’t win. Stay out of their prison cages.

Don’t share your mind with cowards who already forfeited their rights. You know who they are. They’re the ones who gave up before there was even a fight. They always believe you should give away your rights to serve the ones in power, just like they do. They obey whoever without much explanation, as long as they are in power. They don’t stand up for anyone. They always suck at defending rights. They act a lot like Adrian Llamo, who turned out PFC Manning for true public service. If this were 1775, they would be milquetoast crown loyalists cowering in their basements, while patriots were out their getting their asses handed to them and dying. The go-alongs-to-get-alongs get inherited into every population. Surprisingly, the only way to piss them off is commit the blasphemy of refusing the powerful what they want, because they believe they have to comply, even when they don’t! There will always be people like that. So don’t share and politely acknowledge their impotent advice without event of argument.

NO GOOD DEED UNPUNISHED

If you’re not a soldier, you shouldn’t get suckered into a fake, undeclared unending war on American assets. The State might try to pick a fight with you in 2015, because they’re used to winning over Americans. They’re very used to “winning” over the bureaucrats and other people they’re legally allowed to terrorize all day long in their ranks.  Those are, in fact, the people who are legally compelled to comply with their demands. They are told frequently how they are government property because they have a GS prefix on their HR documents or they signed up for the armed or clandestine forces.  It’s the lie they spread around like scat to mark their territory.

I feel very sorry how things went for them.  It’s very sad the way they surrendered their blood, DNA, fingerprints and every iota of privacy and sacred boundary in their life to perform public service. No good deed went unpunished.

However, they need to realize, I am not them. They don’t get to surrender my boundaries and my rights for me because they did. That’s not fair to Americans who are sure to prevail in other destinies other than government service.

The US National Security State does not really have the right to treat citizens like government serfs. The truth I can tell today is they never really had the right to treat one single American citizen like their property. They never had they right to compel soldiers to break their oath to this public or Geneva human rights conventions. I guess I can draw the line today. Maybe you will too.

You may not be their employee. However, now you might know what it’s like to work for the government these days.  It’s filled with Nazi exploits and Nazi enforced dark corporations who export hushed up Nazi policy. They want America to be one big Nazi farm in exchange for some clandestine stuff we can never know about.  The only way you can truly know if you’re dealing with an Americanized Nazi, is when they tell you precisely how your Bill of Rights do not matter and then tell you that you are a terrorist, if you choose to resist them.

All the space junk and military technology on this planet cannot give me my Liberty. I have to get that myself. However, I do know as Americans we can take our people and our stuff back from Nazis.  We’re proven.

You can call their bluff.

That’s the truth.

Privacy concerns with existing data sharing practices complicate EU-US identity policies  

BTC- As US Facebook members are jumping like fleas off of a drowning dog, the social network extends it’s plan to to administer online ID in the United Kingdom.  For now, the plan may use Facebook’s authentication systems for a European online identity proposal, as the functional equivalent of the US NSTIC proposal.  Facebook failed to secure a bid to perform this function in the United States serving “drivers licenses” for the Internet in an original pass with the NSTIC program.

Many have found fault with the social network’s data mining policies, its sympatico relationships with federal intelligence agencies for unaccountable surveillance, and finally it’s utter disregard for privacy practices while administering Real ID, a “voluntary” live online identity system to Blizzard’s World of Warcraft susbscribers.

There are existing privacy concerns over ways the United States handles data from across the pond. The Patroit Act may be overreaching by asking the EU to comply with terms of our domestic laws.  PNR (passenger name & travel data) and SWIFT (EU-US financial records) data handling policies may be soon out of Congressional oversight, if proposals are put through a secretive process using an Executive Order from the White House, according to Identity Project’s,  Edward Hasbrouck,  a panel speaker at today’s CFP Conference in Washington D.C.  Mary Callahan, with DHS’ privacy office, made note of similarities over current EU-USdata sharing practices, saying, “We are the same family.”  Jan Albrecht, another panelist for the EU parlaiment, expressed cautions over arbitrary computerized surveillance of European citizens.  At one point, he made comparisons of Nazi policy to the current direction of US data handling.  Undoubtedly a more believable statement due to the fact he is German and not a Fox News opinion leader.

Government proponents of the UK identity system felt the need to clue in civil liberty groups like, No2ID, in advance so the plan would not be altogether eviscerated before evaluating and managing privacy problems.

“It’s not a bad thing in itself to check that the person you are talking to is the person you want to talk to,” [said No2ID’s, Guy Herbert]. “But whatever the good intentions at the outset, the fear will always be that the bureaucratic imperative to collect and share more data about the public will take over.”

E-Verify’s RIDE may be the other Real ID database

BTC- The following statements are based on a reorganized paraphrase of a 2008 California Real ID Certification quarterly report.

Upon reading the Customer Impact portion of the report, I discovered requiring license applicants to provide a SSN# or W-2 forms is part of a State’s ability to become Real ID certified or materially compliant.  This particular benchmark may sound redundant if your State has adopted the E-Verify system.  E-Verify currently uses a web-based data entry system known as EVVE and SAVE, for immigrants.

“There are five national verification systems required by the REAL ID Act. However, only two (legal presence and SSN verification) of the five required electronic verification systems exist today. The remaining three systems for passport verification, birth verification and the all-drivers pointer system still require development.”

“Electronic verification” became a common phrase read throughout the document as a key part of Real ID compliance. It is not a jump to connect that E-Verify may actually be the missing link in public awareness, recognizing it as the other Real ID database.

“The development of a national DL/ID verification system is required to achieve full compliance of the final REAL ID regulations. This system would be used to ensure the applicant has terminated, or is terminating, the DL/ID card issued by another state prior to the issuance of a new DL/ID card.”

Here is what the RIDE initiative would do according to a DHS Privacy Impact Assessment  :

“The Records and Information from Department of Motor Vehicles for E-Verify (RIDE) initiative seeks to increase the effectiveness of E-Verify by automating motor vehicle document (e.g. driver’s license, driver’s permit, or state-issued ID card) verification between state Motor Vehicle Agencies (MVA) and E-Verify employers. In approximately 95% of the more than 12 million employment authorization queries E-Verify received during FY2010, employees used a driver’s license, driver’s permit, or state-issued ID card to establish their identity. The RIDE initiative enhances E-Verify by providing the ability to validate the information entered by an employer from an employee’s driver’s license, driver’s permit, or state-issued ID card against MVA data.

E-Verify determines if the expiration date of the driver’s license, driver’s permit, or state-issued ID card as entered by the employer indicates that the employee presented an unexpired document to the employer. If E-Verify determines that an expired document was presented, E-Verify prompts the employer to enter a document that was not expired on the date of hire.”

E-Verify as RIDE would be a national database which would exactly determine if a State drivers license is “terminating” or expiring. It is now painfully obvious that E-Verify as RIDE would require you to have a nationalized ID card to legally work in America, as an American or an immigrant.  It is designed to collect drivers license information, permits and State issued ID cards.

“The E-Verify program may share relevant driver’s license, driver’s permit, or state-issued ID card information (as entered into E-Verify) with state MVAs for verification purposes.”

This national ID database would be administered by the information clearing house known as, AAMVA.

“E-Verify is leveraging the existing secure framework and applications provided by AAMVAnet to connect to MVA systems for the purpose of verifying the information on an employee’s driver’s
license, permit, or state-issued ID card, as presented for establishing identity on Form I-9. E-Verify provides new fields for employers to enter relevant identity document information from Form I-9 as part of the RIDE enhancement. The MVA databases contain biographical information collected from individuals who have applied for a driver’s license, driver’s permit, or state-issued ID card through a state MVA. The state MVA owns the data in the system that is being queried by E-Verify. This connection is strictly limited to the transfer of relevant driver’s license, driver’s permit, or state-issued ID card information for the purposes described in this PIA Update.

MVA systems do not retain any data transferred as a result of an E-Verify query, nor does this connection permit MVA access to the E-Verify system or its records. Information from the MVA databases helps to verify the documents an individual presents to establish identity in the employment eligibility process.”

The MVA systems won’t hold that information, but AAMVA will! Mississippi, the only State to pilot the RIDE initiative, might be exactly right to demand the US government try a different federal contractor – at least one who isn’t in the data brokerage business.

For the rest of us, you have until 5PM June 8th EDT to defend your right to work in America without the aid or defense of a national identity database program known as Real ID.

This one goes to Hawaii for all of the exhaustive inquiry into identity articles.

c/o Honolulu Star Adviser.com

Question: Regarding the Department of Homeland Security giving states until January 2013 to comply with the REAL ID Act (Kokua Line, April 21): Does any Hawaii license issued so far comply? I got my driver’s license in March, but I can’t tell the new one from the old one. (Combination of two questions.)

Answer: No Hawaii driver’s license or state ID card is fully compliant with security features required under the REAL ID Act, according to the city Motor Vehicles & Licensing Division and state ID Office.

Under the Department of Homeland Security’s REAL ID mark guidelines, a fully compliant card will feature a gold circle with a star cut out to reveal the background. That mark will be placed on the front top third of the license or ID.
