Least intrusive zone of surveillance, Rare, An Ideal
The government has an unobtrusive role in society
Considered the norm for western democratic societies
The role of government agencies is essentially one of serving the public
Mass surveillance established
Enforced, interactive and punitive surveillance.
Government agencies have the role of controllers and enforcers of public policy
Governmental bodies have assumed the role of agents of public interest
(LEVEL FIVE) TOTAL SURVEILLANCE
Rarely attained state of total surveillance
The interests of the government become internalized by the public. Individual rights and identity subsumed by government interests. (Think Stockholm Syndrome)
Level of surveillance of a population is always predicated on 4 things;
Money, Man power or Technology, political will, public acceptance

NSA spying US citizens

BIOMETRIC ID IS THE LYNCHPIN OF THE MODERN SURVEILLANCE SOCIETY. EVERYONE MUST BE ENROLLED
Biometrics is used to establish a perfect connection between the body and personal data associated with an individual.
National ID schemes have always been rejected in the US.
After 911, the new climate of fear produced a rare opportunity for both government and industry.
Technology's Role to Grow in a New World of Security
NY Times September 18, 2001
. . .Security experts say technology has presented almost limitless possibilities, including national electronic identification cards.
"Each American could be given a `smart card,' so, as they go into an airport or anywhere, we know exactly who they are," . . .
Such cards, with computer chips, would have detailed information about those they were issued to and would identify them when read by a computer. The cards could be coordinated with fingerprints or, in a few years, facial characteristics, and be programmed to permit or limit access. . . They could track someone's location, financial transactions, criminal history and even driving speed on a particular highway on a given night.
Biometric ID is offered as the remedy for Terrorism, Identity theft, Illegal Immigration, Fraud of all sorts.
2005-The Real ID Act passed with no debate as a rider on a ‘must pass’ military spending bill
**The inclusion of these two technologies on the DL/ID enable tracking/surveillance capabilities**
“REAL ID is. . .the current face of a far larger, international government and private economic effort to collect, store, and distribute the sensitive biometric data of citizens to use for the twin purposes of government tracking and economic control.” -PA Rep. Sam Rohr
Radio Frequency Identification (RFID)
Technology used to identify, track and monitor any object
RFID systems have three main components:
RFID tag, or transponder, contains data (minimum unique ID number, keys database to PII) affixed to or embedded in any object to be identified and tracked
RFID reader, or transceiver, which reads the data from a distance (at least 30 ft)

Enhanced driver’s License
Real ID compliant Driver’s License and Border Crossing Card
“it’s kind of a Real ID with an additional feature ... a chip.”
2007, Sec, Chertoff on EDL’s link
2D Bar code –
-Every state has a 2D Barcode on their DL
2D barcode stores data along two dimensions, 2,000 bytes of data-much more data than 1D barcode or the magnetic stripe.
Includes all info on the license-driver's name, address, date of birth, physical attributes, medical impairments and donor information.
And sometimes the image file of the driver's photo and signature.
Some states include Social Security number, face recognition template or digital fingerprint.

Government issued photo ID
High resolution digital cameras are being used to capture, map, digitize and database our facial features for use with facial recognition technology.
Facial biometrics is used for “at-a-distance identification and tracking” through networked CCTV camera systems or handheld biometric devices connected to databases of our personal information.
It is the Government’s biometric of choice because it can used to identify us without our knowledge or consent.

Anonymity-the ability to conceal one's identity while communicating
“Anonymity is a shield from the tyranny of the majority
... It thus exemplifies the purpose behind the Bill of Rights, and of the First Amendment in particular:
to protect unpopular individuals from retaliation--and their ideas from suppression--at the hand of an intolerant society.“
McIntyre v. Ohio Elections Comm’n, 514 U.S. 334
REAL ID-A National ID?
The federal deadline -January 15, 2013.
The REAL ID Act of 2005 prohibits federal agencies from accepting non-compliant driver's licenses "for identification purposes" after the deadline. (Individual compliance 2014 and 2017 depending on age)
“embracing REAL ID” would mean it would be used to “cash a check, hire a baby sitter, board a plane or engage in countless other activities.” 2008, Sec. DHS Chertoff
REAL ID - INTERNATIONAL ID
International Standards exist for one purpose:
“interoperability . . is the main goal of the AAMVA standard.”
“The main ideology for defining the design of the DL/ID is the minimum acceptable set of requirements to guarantee global interoperability” Source: Personal Identification – AAMVA North American Standard – DL/ID Card Design, 2012

The standard for the digital image on our government issued DL and ID cards is the adopted international standard of the ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) an agency of the United Nations
Real ID – The Historic Rebellion. . .and the sad reality
DHS to States: The REAL ID Deadline Is Next January, Period.
The new deadline for states to meet the standards of the REAL ID Act is January 15, 2013
16 states passed an actual law prohibitingReal ID.
Now - only 7 states still have the law prohibiting compliance in place –
Louisiana, Montana, Washington State, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Arizona and Alaska
“By the deadline of January 13, 2013, most states will be substantially or materially or fully compliant with REAL ID” --Janice Kephart, Feb. 2012
2008 - LA Prohibits REAL ID
HB 715“The Legislature of Louisiana does hereby direct the Department of Public Safety and Corrections, including the office of motor vehicles, not to implement the provisions of the REAL ID Act . . .”
"We were very concerned about identity theft, the privacy, who was going to be capturing the data and who would have their hands on that information that would be very personal." -- Representative Brett Geymann, co-sponsor HB 715 link
Nov. 26, 2012, TheAdvocate.com
La. IDs not in line with U.S. (Headlines never tell the whole story)
. . . the state has refused to bring its driver’s licenses into compliance with federal law.(Not exactly true)
Stephen F. Campbell, commissioner of the Louisiana Office of Motor Vehicles, said the office will meet most of new federal standards by October. . .But a law passed by legislators in 2008 precludes Louisiana from including a symbol that shows the state’s official identification complies with the federal Real ID Act of 2005. (So LA’s anti Real ID law was simply intended to prohibit placing an official symbol on the DL indicating Real ID compliance but not the actual compliance?)
. . . “Since we already comply with 37 of 39, why don’t we just go ahead and become a Real ID state? That’s the question,” said Brett F. Geymann, R-Lake Charles, who co-sponsored Louisiana’s legislation. (37 of 39 What?!!)
BENCHMARKS - Real ID is comprised of a total of 39 Benchmarks
MATERIAL COMPLIANCE - the first 18 of these benchmarksThe Jan 15, 2013 deadline is for material compliance
States with laws prohibiting REAL ID, have chosen to read that law as only prohibiting the aspects of compliance that require a formal request for of DHS’ seal of approval.
3 of the 18 initial benchmarks are merely formalizations of the Real ID compliance The Dept. of Homeland Security has already indicated that it will waive these benchmarks for states with an anti-Real ID law on the books.

Mandatory facial image capture and retention
A GOLD STAR -The last step in achieving ‘material compliance’ The state must request DHS to approve placing a gold star on their state licensewhich signifies Real ID compliance and that the card is acceptable for “federal identification purposes”
“. . .state law prevents the OMV from completely implementing the Real ID requirements”
AAMVA-The American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators Named by DHS as the “hub and backbone” of Real ID.
“DHS has worked with the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA) to coordinate state implementation of the standards of the REAL ID regulation. In particular, DHS participated . . .in the drafting of the Personal Identification – AAMVA North American Standard – DL/ID Card Design. . . the design must meet or exceed REAL ID requirements.”
DHS, Aug. 2012 Secure Identification State Progress Fiscal Year 2012 Report to Congress
“The AAMVA standard is consistent with the requirements identified in the DHS [Real ID] regulation.”
‘The Oklahoma Department of Public Safety rolled out a new look to state driver's licenses, but the changes have one group up in arms. The changes to the driver's license are the result of "best practices" according to DPS. . .’
BIOMETRIC ID IS THE LYNCHPIN OF THE MODERN SURVEILLANCE SOCIETY.
The Biometric ID system is a global one
EVERYONEMUST BE ENROLLED
Around the globe, people are being are being enrolled by deception, coercion and stealth
into a Single Global Biometric Identification System that Links A Person’s Body to their Ability to Buy Sell and Travel
A Single Global Biometric Identification System requires nations and states to do 3things
2.Adopt international Standards
1.Enroll citizens (DL/ID cards, passports, national ID, school ID, etc.)
The standard for the digital image on our ID cards is the adopted international standard of the ICAO
3.Link databases for global information sharing, global ID-tracking and surveillance
International Biometric Identification schemes run afoul of The US Constitution/Bill of Rights in more ways that we have time to list.
That is the power a global biometric identification system will enable for all governments, over all of us living now and those who will come in the future.
This is not a question of whether or not you trust your government.
A better question is do you trust all governments and do you trust them all both now and into the future to never abuse this ability to separate you or your loved ones from their ability to secure for ourselves the basic necessities of life?
Free exercise of religion
vigilant Christians see many parallels between biometric ID and Mark of the Beast as foretold in the book of Revelation
Once it is clear that biometric ID does not live up to the hype, databases and ID documents are compromised (and they will be) the justification will exist to move the identification process from the identification document to directly "on" the person.
Religious Objections to Biometric ID - Constitutional Alliance
Bottom line “. . . physical objects like ID cards or birth certificates. . . cannot be depended upon as an infallible mechanism of identification.”
The Real ID Act 2005 mandates the creation of new databases and the linking of the new databases with existing databases
‘As we learn to link biometrics to biographic, geospatial, social networks and other forms of data, we can develop patterns of activities for both individuals and organizations. . .’

A personal Message
Kaye Beach, Norman, OK
Dec, 9, 2012
My name is Kaye Beach. I am a Christian wife, mother and full time liberty
activist from central Oklahoma. For the past five years I have been tirelessly
sounding the alarm about the dangers posed to our most fundamental
freedoms by our government’s unrestrained use of high tech. surveillance.
Biometric ID is the lynchpin of the modern surveillance society
In 2009 I became a member of the Board of Directors of the Constitutional Alliance. The Constitutional Alliance was co-founded by Mark Lerner, a nationally recognized expert on biometric technology and former biometric industry insider. We have been on the forefront of the battle against biometric identification providing Americans with accurate and specific information on issues regarding biometrics and legislation like the REAL ID Act.
Very few people realize that when they get a state driver’s license, a state identification card or any other form of government issued photo ID, they are having their facial biometrics captured by the high resolution photos. High resolution digital cameras capture, map, digitize and database our facial features for the purpose of use by facial recognition technology. Facial recognition technology enables at a distance identification and tracking through networked camera systems without our knowledge or consent. (CCTV, handheld biometric devices and even drones utilize facial recognition technology for identification and investigation purposes) In truth, we are being enrolled into a global system of identification and control that links our bodies to our ability to buy sell and travel. And it is being done through deception, coercion and stealth.
The Real ID Act of 2005 was the first federal law to require the use of facial biometrics. It is also the closest thing to a true national ID that the US has ever seen. As bad as that is, there’s an even bigger picture here. What the Real ID Act did was to impose federal guidelines that use INTERNATIONAL standards for state driver's licenses and ID documents. There is only one purpose for international standards and that is to facilitate the global sharing of information.
Historic Opposition and the Sad Reality
The level of opposition to the Real ID Act by was historic in many ways. For one thing, the opposition was truly bipartisan. Right, left and everyone in between found something to hate about REAL ID and they worked together long and hard to resist it. At least 25 states passed either a law or resolution opposing or prohibiting implementation of REAL ID. Sadly, even though roughly half the states in the US passed a law or resolution prohibiting the implementation of the REAL ID, your state DMV is still capturing and keeping your biometrics and REAL ID still marches on. The final deadline is Jan 25, 2012 and most states are expected to be in compliance or substantially in compliance with REAL ID by then.
My Real ID Reckoning
In 2011, after years of work and research, I realized that was no way that I could renew my soon to be expired driver’s license if it meant the surrender of my biometrics. I asked the state for a non-biometric license to accommodate me based on my sincerely held religious beliefs and was flatly refused. This left me little choice but to forgo renewing my license.

My legal situation garnered the attention of the respected Rutherford Institute, one of the nation's leading advocates of civil liberties and human rights founded by constitutional attorney John W. Whitehead. Mr. Whitehead signed on to my case along with Mr. Sisney and they filed a lawsuit on my behalf against the Oklahoma Department of Public Safety. We have discussed my case with a variety of well-respected legal minds and each one of them has registered the opinion that this case is a winner!
Here is some wonderful news!
The Rutherford Institute made a gracious pledge to fund cases going forward around the country once I prevail in my case in Oklahoma.
But first I have to win
In order to move my case forward, I need support. My legal representation is not free and my case will only go forward if people are willing to support it. I need your help.
