Default Real ID,Biometrics, RFID+Promiscous Data Swapping

Citizens Assembly for Oklahoma Sovereignty [SIZE=2]Citizens to Assemble in Support of Bipartisan Legislative Efforts to Protect Oklahomans from the Federal Collection, Sharing and Control of Personal Data.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=2]Oklahoma City, OK - A non-partisan “Citizens Assembly for Oklahoma Sovereignty” will be held on Saturday, January 3rd, 2009 in support of upcoming legislation that will protect Oklahomans privacy and prevent the further collection and sharing of sensitive personal data.[/SIZE]
Sponsored by the national group The Constitutional Alliance, OK-SAFE, and R3publicans, the evening meeting will feature special guest speakers Senator Constance Johnson and Representative Charles Key.
The discussion topics will include Oklahoma’s Tenth Amendment Resolution, which asserts and protects state’s rights; the collection of sensitive personal data, including biometric samples and data; and the global sharing of citizen’s personal information.
Also discussed will be the federal legislation known as the REAL ID Act of 2005, which, for the first time in our country’s history, standardized the requirements for state driver’s licenses and identification cards. The controversial, and unfunded, federal law included requirements to collect personal biometric data on citizens, participation in a growing national/international database of personal data, and allowed for the global information sharing of data.
States which were non-compliant with the federal REAL ID mandates were threatened with prohibiting those citizens without the new biometric driver’s licenses or identification cards access to government buildings or being allowed to board a federally regulated airplane.
Oklahomans overwhelmingly rejected participation in the REAL ID Act of 2005 with the passage of SB 464 in 2007, passed by both houses.
The bill, signed into law in May 2007 by Democrat Governor Brad Henry, clearly stated Oklahoma’s non-participation in the REAL ID Act, however, in early 2008 the Governor wrote a letter to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff asking for an extension to comply with REAL ID mandates.
The Constitutional Alliance has been helping legislators, officials and citizens groups across the country to understand the inherent dangers of biometric data collection and has helped to develop model legislation strengthening a citizen’s right to privacy and identity protection. The Alliance and other conservative groups recognize that Oklahoma, considered the most conservative state in the union, will be looked to as a leader in protecting the rights and freedoms of its’ citizens.
Nationally known biometric expert, Mark Lerner, who has travelled the U.S. extensively educating legislators and citizens’ groups on the dangers of biometric data collection, will be present. Donations will be accepted to help fund travel expenses for Mr. Lerner.
[SIZE=2]The “Citizens Assembly for Oklahoma Sovereignty” will be held at the Character First Training Center, 520 W. Main, Oklahoma City on Saturday, January 3[/SIZE]rd[SIZE=2], 2009. The meeting begins at 7:00 pm. [/SIZE]

Default Citizens Assembly-Great!

It turned out very well.
I'm very glad to live in this state. We might have a fighting chance at making it out of all this with a state that still resembles America!

Glad you made it, Tu 'cane!

The turnout to this assembly was tremendous. Every time we meet we grow stronger.
“Citizens Assembly” Remarkable Turnout! « AxXiom for Liberty

For those who oppose Real ID (and that should be everyone...who is attached to the notion of being free) Here is a vile peice of legislation that you should know about;

[CENTER]SB 483 the “Direct Access” bill will make the Department of Public Safety the designated the Broker for your Biometric Data (digital photo)[/CENTER]

Your biometric data is a necessary component needed by Oklahoma’s new Fusion Center in order to achieve its goal of “seamless” data sharing between states, the federal government and profit seeking private corporations that have been driving this legislation. These companies are partnered with our government in this scheme that build fortunes at our expense.
[CENTER]Innocent Americans risk being enrolled in a system that makes real-time surveillance a reality

I still don't understand this bill and why you oppose this bill. It sounds like the crux of the argument against this bill is this bill supports the transfer of digital photographs of people between agencies and "unknown" agreements?

"Known among concerned citizens as the "direct electronic access" bill, language contained in SB 483 makes the DPS a gateway agency for the distribution of personal biometric information (digitized photo) of unsuspecting citizens and is linked to the controversial fusion center being developed in Oklahoma. Enrollment in a global biometric identification system is a concern for all, especially Christians." <bold and italics mine>
OK-SAFE Action Alert Urgent! Oppose SB 483 - Liberty Forest

Why is this id system a concern, ESPECIALLY CHRISTIANS? Why more so for the christians than others?

I think the focal point of axxiom's angst over this bill is that it is more intrusive laws that seem to be creeping up on us day by day redbird.

Okay, but how is that especially concerning to christians? Is biometric information the mark of the beast? And what is the controversial fusion center being built in Oklahoma?

This bill proposes to allow direct access to our digital photos via DPS. Further, it allows the DPS Commissioner to grant access at his discretion or that of his designee.
[SIZE=3]“Any record required to be maintained by the Department may be released to any other entity free of charge when the release of the record would be for the benefit of the public, as determined by the Commissioner or a designee of the Commissioner”[/SIZE]
There are several critical issues with this bill but for the sake of brevity I will address the aspect that concerns me most. The digitized photos and sharing policy of them.
Digitized photos are converted easily to biometric code by software. This is one of the reasons that digital photographs are the biometric of choice; the photos are easy to obtain, and sidesteps the problem of getting people to agree to allow their biometric data to be collected.
Then consider that “Seamless” sharing of personal data with other states, the private sector, federal agencies and even international bodies is named as a goal of Fusion Centers[SIZE=3]. [/SIZE][SIZE=3]http://www.it.ojp.gov/documents/fusion_center_guidelines_law_enforcement.pdf[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]SB 483 states; [/SIZE]
“The Commissioner of Public Safety is authorized to establish procedures and enter into agreements with any other law enforcement agency of this state or political subdivision of this state for the purpose of providing direct electronic access to the photograph or image in computerized format of any person who has been issued a driver license or identification card by the Department of Public Safety.”


[SIZE=3]While access to the information of citizens is expanding on every front, our government is incrementally contracting our access to what they are doing with that information, how they are gathering it, and to whom they are sharing with.[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]Take a look at Senate Bill 1120[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]The bill would create an additional executive session exemption allowing nearly all law enforcement meetings of any kind to be closed. The new section would allow “all law enforcement boards, bureaus, commissions, and task forces for purposes of discussing ongoing criminal investigations, targets, or pending legal cases” to recess into executive session. [/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]SB 483 says;[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]Any record required to be maintained by the Department may be released to any other entity free of charge when the release of the record would be for the benefit of the public, as determined by the Commissioner or a designee of the Commissioner[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]The Oklahoma Public Records Act states that;[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]“The purpose of this act is to ensure and facilitate the public’s right of access to and review of government records so they may efficiently and intelligently exercise their inherent political power.”[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3] [/SIZE]
So, while the citizens’ most personal information (biometrics is a unique numerical representation of our very biology, SSN are not nearly so intimate and the controversy of using it as an identifier still exists today!) is open to a vast range of agencies, public, private and international, the citizens right to know just what is being done with their information is restricted.

In the just released testimony regarding the Science and Technology Directorate before the House Subcommittee on Homeland Security “Science and Technology Research and Transitioning Products into Use” the purpose of image sharing is made clear;

[SIZE=3] Information Sharing/Management[/SIZE]
[SIZE=3]Established and piloted digital image exchange specifications for the NLETS Image Sharing Program (NISP) to enable state and local law enforcement personnel to query and retrieve driver’s license photos across state lines via the NLETS network. DHS S&T partnered with the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) to examine the technical, policy, and privacy challenges of enabling law enforcement personnel to share interstate driver’s license photos for field identification and threat assessment functions. In addition to DHS and NIJ, agencies participating in the interstate photo sharing program include the International Justice and Public Safety Information Sharing Network (NLETS), the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators. . . [/SIZE]
Since the forming of this nation the idea of searching citizens without probable cause and set procedure is abhorrent to the American psyche. The abuse of colonists by British soldiers whowould rifle through their belongings at will is credited with being a significant motivator of the Revolutionary War.
These overarching information sharing policy do exactly the same thing and the only reason it has been permitted to the degree that it has is because a “virtual search” is not as obvious as a physical one. However, the risk involved to the citizen is the same or worse, a fact that the public is beginning to take notice of.
Here is an example of the work of Fusion Centers that has many American outraged;
[SIZE=3]http://axiomamuse.wordpress.com/2009...ive-extremists[/SIZE]
The Raw Story | Fusion center declares nation's oldest universities possible terror threat

[SIZE=3]In the words of Supreme Court Louis Justice Brandeis; [/SIZE]
The makers of the Constitution conferred the most comprehensive of rights and the right most valued by all civilized men—the right to be let alone."
[SIZE=3]I hope that the Oklahoma lawmakers will give this bill a closer look and take appropriate action to safeguard the rights of the people of this state.[/SIZE]

also over 700 different groups oppose this system from the ACLU to the ACLJ. Christians hate it but you don't have to fear biblical prophesy to see that this plant stinks! In fact, there is something for everyone to hate.
