Obama administration delays rule to improve driver's license security


www.cnn.com

Washington (CNN) -- A 9/11 commission recommendation to set federal standards for state driver's licenses is being kicked down the road again -- the third major delay in its history.

The Department of Homeland Security said Friday that it is moving the May 11 deadline for implementation of the Real ID Act to January 15, 2013, so that cash-strapped states will have more time to add security features to driver's licenses and ensure that license holders are who they say they are.

For those dreading the Real ID Act coming into effect in May it has thankfully been pushed back for the better part of two more years as States are no where near ready to implement the pie in the sky knee jerk thinking of the tax and spend on layer after layer of security U.S. Congress.

Interestingly enough and worth noting it’s another Homeland Security Gestapo enterprise, the TSA that is causing them to push back the implementation as the article cites Obama as saying the airlines would lose significant business because many states have not complied with the Real ID Act, and once law people with out a Real ID, ID would not be allowed through TSA Checkpoints or Government buildings.

The very notable thing here is that the Airlines can in fact put pressure on Administration and Homeland Security Policy.

As a important and integral part of the engine of commerce, a air passenger system that functions at its most efficient is vital to commerce.

So in other words if people really got serious about protesting and boycotting the airlines because of the TSA Screening procedures, ultimately they would either have to modify or eliminate them, or end up losing the airline industry, or go back to regulation and subsidy of it.

Even if they went back to regulation and subsidy of it, that still would not get people who refuse to fly because of the security procedures back on the planes and the engine of commerce and tourism functioning at peak capacity, it would just ensure that those who will degrade themselves and submit would have a flight to take once they did.

Of course the CNN article was full of more of the fear mongering from Congress citing the Human Right’s Criminal Napolitano as saying the “terrorist threat has never been so high”.

Maybe if our government actually started conducting foreign policy in a way that didn’t anger and upset most of the world the number of people abroad unhappy with it would go down, instead of the U.S. Government and a few select corporations running what in essence is nothing but a ‘mafia style’ protection racket, of making states and citizens pay them through the nose for useless security measures like Real ID.

For now it’s been pushed back and hopefully between now and January 15, 2013 the American People manage to regain control of it’s runaway, corrupt and fascist corporate government.

Lmfao.. The blackmarket i.d guys in asia already counterfeit the high tech i.ds used by countries that have them. Took them about a week to figure out how to bypass the security on them.. Yet they think that they can make one that wouldnt be counterfeited or bypassed over there.. thats hilarious.. On the bright side the delays are good for the people..

Well it may be that Obama is being set up as the fall guy for something that is planned in the not so distant future. If you know what I mean. If only Obama would not have delayed the improvement to our drivers licenses, this would have never have happened.

Which of course is non sense when we consider that the supposed terrorists who pulled off nine eleven were identified and tracked well before the event. I believe there is a book now called Operation Dark Heart that stirred up a lot of controversy in the intelligence communities.


Operation Dark Heart is a 2010 memoir by U.S. Army intelligence officer Lt. Col Anthony Shaffer notable for the lengths the U.S. Defense Department went in an attempt to censor information revealed within, after the book had already been distributed free of redactions. The book details Shaffer's five months in Afghanistan and includes former code names, operational details, and describes some of the inner workings of America's intelligence agencies. After submitting the book for review to the U.S. Army in 2003 and receiving approval, a printing of an only modestly censored edition was made, and nearly 100 advanced copies were distributed.



Shortly after the first printing, the Defense Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency saw copies of the book and insisted on censoring passages they deemed sensitive. The first, uncensored printing of nearly 10,000 copies was purchased and destroyed by the Pentagon in its entirety, and a second, censored printing was released in September 2010. However, because several original, advanced copies are in circulation, the contents of the censored passages are known, and the Pentagon's attempt to keep the information secret has flagged the known but censored content as more interesting. Further, the entire debacle has attracted more attention to the book, undermining the Pentagon's proclaimed intention of keeping the information contained.

well.

I think somebody - anybody with negotiating experience should organize a Gas Price Protest!


all ya have to do is get 100 neighbors to block the pumps at your corner gas station and demand that the OWNER lower the prices NOW or we don't buy anything including stuff in your convenience store or car wash! So what if THEY want to see your I.D. - show it yo 'em and tell 'em to "get a life"!!

"Real ID's" only produce "Real Phony ID's"!

set a time and date here in the U.S. and maybe the U.K. too!

same goes for the airlines ---- maybe we need an old fashioned "Jessie Jackson -SCLC" style boycott of all the "problem" products!

sock-puppeteers! are you listening?

I agree too that this delay may be connected with a soon to be false flag.

Probably involving the Mexican border.

The States don't like it!


Anti-Real ID Legislation in the States

Following is a list of states where legislation against Real ID is currently active, with links to the relevant legislation and, where available, its status. The map below shows the introduction and passage of anti-Real ID bills, as well as states that have already opted out. This list will be constantly changing as more states act, and it will be updated as quickly as possible.
