Life in Obama’s America is getting scary …
Imagine if you will, a national identity database containing key identifiers, a current “biometric level” photograph – and the system can be synced to other government programs, notably the national healthcare system known as Obamacare. America is sliding quickly towards the type of police state found in socialist and communist countries.
And, Republican Marco Rubio is greasing the skids as he morphs into John McCain and Lindsey Graham to hop across the aisle and help the democrats finalize their agenda.
While the tool is currently restricted to immigration issues, it takes only an amendment hidden into an unrelated piece of legislation to extend the use of the photo-database for other purposes. Always in the guise of preventing medical errors, curbing fraud, and other safety and security uses as the government so decides. In fact, given the tremendous unconstrained and unreviewable powers granted to the various cabinet-level secretaries, this program might be expanded by administrative rulemaking that totally bypasses Congress. Another usurpation of Congressional power by the Executive Branch.
Others are also worried …
Biometric Database of All Adult Americans Hidden in Immigration Reform
The immigration reform measure the Senate began debating yesterday would create a national biometric database of virtually every adult in the U.S., in what privacy groups fear could be the first step to a ubiquitous national identification system.
Buried in the more than 800 pages of the bipartisan legislation is language mandating the creation of the innocuously-named “photo tool,” a massive federal database administered by the Department of Homeland Security and containing names, ages, Social Security numbers and photographs of everyone in the country with a driver’s license or other state-issued photo ID.
Employers would be obliged to look up every new hire in the database to verify that they match their photo.
This piece of the Border Security, Economic Opportunity, and Immigration Modernization Act is aimed at curbing employment of undocumented immigrants. But privacy advocates fear the inevitable mission creep, ending with the proof of self being required at polling places, to rent a house, buy a gun, open a bank account, acquire credit, board a plane or even attend a sporting event or log on the internet. Think of it as a government version of Foursquare, with Big Brother cataloging every check-in.
“It starts to change the relationship between the citizen and state, you do have to get permission to do things,” said Chris Calabrese, a congressional lobbyist with the American Civil Liberties Union. “More fundamentally, it could be the start of keeping a record of all things.” Read more at: Biometric Database of All Adult Americans Hidden in Immigration Reform | Threat Level | Wired.com
Don’t let the ACLU’s apparent protestations fool you. This organization supports progressive liberalism if not socialism/communism with the exception of a few high-profile cases for propaganda purposes.
Bottom line …
Link government databases with the consumer credit bureaus, financial institutions, doctor’s offices, and employers … and you have the clear and present danger of a shift towards to a totalitarian regime seeking perpetual political power.
Given the Administration’s lies on Benghazi, the targeted IRS audits for political purposes, and the number of politicians trading on insider information to make fortunes … we are in deep, deep decline. Time to clear up the corruption in government, starting with the Corrupter-in-Chief. And, considering Hillary Clinton as an extension of the international socialist threat, we have only the 2014 congressional election to start the decline. That is, if enough Americans really care for the Country and its direction.
