Will Americans Soon Not Be Able To Buy, Sell Or Get A Job Without A Global ID Card?

Michael Snyder
Activist Post

A plan being pushed in Congress right now by senators from both major political parties would force all Americans to get a biometric national ID card. It is being promoted as a key "immigration reform" measure, but the truth is that a national ID card is much more about the government's endless appetite for more control over the American people.

If this national ID card plan is passed by Congress, you will not be able to get a job without one. So how are you going to survive if you can't work? In addition, this national ID card would undoubtedly soon be used to identify us for all sorts of other purposes. For example, have you tried to open up a bank account lately? They make you jump through all sorts of hoops to prove that you are who you say you are. So what would happen if the government decided to require you to show your national ID card before opening up a bank account? If you refused to get a card, how would you be able to function in society without a bank account? Would you try to conduct all of your transactions in cash only? That might work for a while. And of course you would not be able to drive or get on a plane without your national ID card. So forget about going anywhere.

Are you starting to get the picture? Unfortunately, the push for a national ID card in the United States is only a small part of the overall push toward a "global ID card" that is happening all over the planet. The eventual goal is to have a "universal ID" that every man, woman and child on the planet will be forced to take.

That is why it is so important for the American people to speak up about this.

Right now, all of the big mainstream media outlets are lining up on the side of a national ID card. For instance, just check out this short excerpt from a recent Washington Post article entitled "The case for a national ID card"...
An effective solution would be to issue tamper-proof, biometric ID cards — using fingerprints or a comparably unique identifier — to all citizens and legal residents. Last week, both President Obama and a bipartisan group of eight senators seeking immigration reform urged something along those lines, without calling it a universal national identity card. That’s a major step forward.
And of course the Wall Street Journal is reporting on this too...
Key senators are exploring an immigration bill that would force every U.S. worker—citizen or not—to carry a high-tech identity card that could use fingerprints or other personal markers to prove a person's legal eligibility to work.
The idea, signaled only in vaguely worded language from senators crafting a bipartisan immigration bill, has privacy advocates and others concerned that the law would create a national identity card that, in time, could track Americans at airports, hospitals and through other facets of their lives.

According to investigative reporter James Tucker, there are those in the Obama administration that are optimistic that they will be able to get a national ID card through Congress now that Ron Paul has left the House of Representatives...
At a recent reception in Washington, D.C., an AMERICAN FREE PRESS source overheard Thomas E. Donilon, a White House national security advisor and past Bilderberg member, speaking of Paul’s retirement and the good chance that the global card could now be shepherded through Congress. Paul’s son, Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.), would not object to the plan, added the individual with whom Donilon was talking. He was referring to the fact that Senator Paul has backed off from the strong pro-nationalist positions of his father because he is fantasizing about being elected president in 2016.
So will anyone in Congress step up and fight this on behalf of the American people?

Let's hope so.

But of course there are many other large nations that are actually far ahead of the United States when it comes to implementing this global ID card scheme.

Just check out what is going on in Indonesia...
Since the start of the government of Indonesia’s multi-modal biometrics-based National Electronic ID Card (e-KTP) program in August 2011, record enrollments are being achieved across the country’s population of 172 million ID-eligible residents. 
More than 103 million people have been enrolled and de-duplicated in one year with 80% or 140 million residents of the eligible population already enrolled and 85% already processed. Statistics show that over 1 million de-duplication transactions are being achieved in a single day in the data center and 600,000 enrollments being achieved in a single day in the field. In addition 60 million ID cards have been printed.
And India is currently collecting biometric information on more than a billion people...
In India, a massive effort is underway to collect biometric identity information for each of the country’s 1.2 billion people. The incredible plan, dubbed the “mother of all e-governance projects” by the Economic Times, has stirred controversy in India and beyond, raising serious concerns about the privacy and security of individuals’ personal data. 
The plan is moving ahead at a clip under the auspices of the National Population Register (NPR) and the Unique ID (UID) programs, separately governed initiatives that have an agreement to integrate the data they collect to build the world’s largest biometric database. Upon enrollment, individuals are issued 12-digit unique ID numbers on chip-based identity cards. For residents who lack the necessary paperwork to obtain certain kinds of employment or government services, there’s strong incentive to get a unique ID. While the UID program is voluntary, enrollment in the NPR program is mandatory for all citizens.
Are you starting to understand what is happening?

This is a global effort.

At this point, there are approximately 100 countries that now issue mandatory ID cards, and undoubtedly this campaign to gather the biometric information of every person on Earth will continue to spread.

In fact, soon you may not even be able to log in to your favorite Internet sites without a fingerprint or an iris scan.

Does that sound crazy to you?

It doesn't sound crazy to the major technology firms that are a part of the Fast Identity Online Alliance...
Imagine logging on to your eBay account with your fingerprint. Or perhaps accessing your Facebook account via an iris scan. 
It might seem a bit much for the average computer user, but it may not be that far off if an initiative is successful. 
The use of biometric data as an added security measure is just one of the solutions being proposed by a consortium of firms who have come together to form the Fast Identity Online (FIDO) Alliance.
We live in a world that has become obsessed with information and obsessed with security.

At first, we may all just be forced to carry around ID cards, but eventually cards will not be considered to be good enough.

Cards are easily lost, they can be stolen, and they can be forged.

But what about an electronic tattoo?

Wouldn't that be much more secure?

That is the argument that will be made.

And the advancements that have been made in the field of electronic tattoos lately have got a lot of scientists very excited...
Temporary electronic tattoos could soon help people fly drones with only thought and talk seemingly telepathically without speech over smartphones, researchers say.
Does that sound "cool" to you?

That is how these changes will be marketed to the public. They will be sold as the "hip" and "cool" things to do.

But the truth is that these electronic tattoos are incredibly dangerous. They can receive electrical signals from your brain, and they can also send electrical signals to your brain...
The devices are less than 100 microns thick, the average diameter of a human hair. They consist of circuitry embedded in a layer or rubbery polyester that allow them to stretch, bend and wrinkle. They are barely visible when placed on skin, making them easy to conceal from others. 
The devices can detect electrical signals linked with brain waves, and incorporate solar cells for power and antennas that allow them to communicate wirelessly or receive energy. Other elements can be added as well, like thermal sensors to monitor skin temperature and light detectors to analyze blood oxygen levels.
This is very frightening stuff.

But most people just do whatever the "authorities" tell them to do without thinking about it.

So will you take a national ID card if Congress requires you to?

Will you take an electronic tattoo on your hand or your forehead someday if the authorities require it for "security" reasons?

The control freaks that run things just love to find new ways to watch us, track us and control us.

For example, just check out what is going on in New York City. The following is from a recent article in the Telegraph...
Created by Microsoft and the New York Police Department, the Domain Awareness System, known as "the dashboard," is state-of-the-art crime fighting technology. 
"The dashboard," instantaneously mines data from the NYPD's vast collection of arrest records, emergency 911 calls, more than 3,000 security cameras, license plate readers and portable radiation detectors and aggregates it into a user-friendly, readable form in the control room. 
Eventually, that data will be able to be seen in real time by officers on laptops in their squad cars and on mobile devices as they walk their beat.
Could you imagine how much more intrusive such a system would be if "national ID cards" were constantly feeding information about all of us into their computers?

But the "authorities" insist that all of this "security" is making life so much "better" and "safer" for all of us.

Well, what about for 3-year-old Lucy Schulte?

She is a sweet little disabled girl in a wheelchair that has Spina bifida. Recently she was getting ready to get on a plane to go to Disney World, but TSA workers decided that she was a potential terrorist and so they manhandled her and confiscated her stuffed toy.

You can see very disturbing video of this incident below...

Is this really want we want America to become?

For much more on how America is being transformed into a Big Brother police state, please see the following article: "29 Signs That The Elite Are Transforming Society Into A Total Domination Control Grid".

So what do you think about all of this?

Do you believe that a global ID card is a good idea or a bad idea?

Would you take a national ID card if Congress made it mandatory?

the democrats scream bloody murder when someone has to present id to vote but now they want you to show Id to get a job? isn't that racist?? Oh wait, I forgot, democrats don't actually work, they are parasitical organisms that STEAL what the producers of society create.

A side note; federal legislation is only applicable to the territorial boundaries of and to property owned by or ceded to the US government. Step over the property line and you are no longer subject to federal legislation/jurisdiction!
Just like if one lives in nevada/utah/new mexico/kansas/nebraska/wyoming, anyone in those states can cross the border INTO COLORADO and smoke marijuana legally! but IF smoke it in your home state, you go to jail! TERRITORIAL LIMITS OF FEDERAL JURISDICTION ARE MOST CERTAINLY APPLICABLE AND LIMITS FEDERAL LAWS TO IT'S OWN PROPERTY!!!
The federal government has it territorial limits, although the government would have us "believe" that there is no limit to their territorial legislative jurisdiction. There is most certainly a definitive CONSTITUTIONAL territorial jurisdictional limitation!
Always challenge jurisdiction if you were not/are not on federally owned property and you have been charged with an alleged "federal" crime!

I wonder if Dianne Feinstein and her supporters have heard about this bit of technology. If so, I bet the Congress will try to get us to either own our guns or turn them in depending on who has one of these and who doesn't.

That stuff in NYC sounds like something that Mayor Bloomberg would really like to have around with gun owners' names listed.

I believe that the Big Brother of 1984 has finally arrived, full force.

I was actually able to open a bank account online without any problems or having to prove anything about who I was. That's about as far into your article as I got.

Now is the time for all good men. And women to keep an eye out along our ocean beaches, just in case some mutant beast with 7 heads and ten horns which would mean we are being invaded by the Fukishima Godzilla.

This is but the perfected tech that we used upon Afgan and Irag peoples. It works folks it realy does. Of course being a nutcase I believe we used the nation of Iraq as a training ground to perfect weaponry and controll of a whole nation.,genocide planed with deliberate callousness towards any semblence at all of humanitarian treatment.
Also know that at times upon american soil university scientist in vollusion have performed teat using american people as test rats. No more than that.
WILL I get one,hell no, got one foot ovrt the line already taking second step no big deal.
Think 95+% of americans will. The
top 5% already own them and like cattle ya either brand em or put a tag in their ear.
Gotta eat, gotta work to eat, It is not much diff than the 47 million on food stamps, unwed momas and any one on medicare or SSI or collectind disability does now. Ya wanna work what's your SSI#¿
This tech of implants with own body able to broadcast a low level beacon was used by our pilots of stealth and fighters in Balkan Wars.
That is how they located one hero doned pilot and the German pilot that crashed our stealth craft in Bosnia Or Yugoslavia no more.
COUNTERFITING A RETINA, now that is pretty hi tech for anyone not in gov.
so line up and bend over cuz your gonna get tagged no matter what you do.

The global ID system will be forced on everyone when physical currency is withdrawn and replaced by digital money. Already, in Europe, the maximum amount of cash you can use to make a legal transaction is dropping from 1000 Euros to 500 Euros and is scheduled to drop further.

Once physical cash is eliminated, we will all need to be "chipped" to buy anything or work anywhere. There will be no other option.

Teabunny said...

so,let me get this straight. To buy, sell, you would have to take the number issued you, like a social security number, place that card into a biometics reader, then put either you hand or your forehead into a device to scan your figerprints or iris..Gee, where have I read something about taking a number, and needing a mark on your forehead or hand, to buy or sell..hmmm..
tell me, what do you think people placing a numbered card and then their face or hand into a machine to verify you before buying or selling, would look like to a first century prophet? that would be something to read. a real revelation. huh. :)

Revelation 13:16-17 "And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name."

This entire scam is built on a foundation of hatred, racism and ignorance.........all driven by the REPUBLICAN party.

Illegal immigrants from Mexico, given jobs by corporate America are generally nice people. We all may have much in common with them 5 or 10 years down the road.
The minute men border patrol gun nuts and patriots who never stopped whinning and blaming illegals from Mexico for all of our problems always supported ID checks, ID driven solutions to this problem.................Well kids, you got your solution, ID checks for everybody!
The idea that Democrats officially stick it to you is just a bit of extra comedy for our fascist rulers to enjoy. And from what I see here, most people just don't want to accept the idea that Democrats and Republicans are the same damn thing. Divided, the people get played, time and time again.

Anonymous said...

Anon 9.48p and anon 5.47p, you both should get together and go out on a date. Unless a Republican knows a Democrat that can help him, or vicee versee, they both hate you equally and would rather you just die because you take up space and use too much of their stuff.

And for all you Bible/ Revelations people out there, why do you think those books were written in the first place?

there is no fighting this, really. Its about time that the truth movement realized that the sheeple are as much the problem as the elite.
"getting the word out" is futile, because its not a lack of information that makes a sheeple a sheeple. Its a character structure thing.
The time is going to come where you cannot live in this world unless you go with the flow toward world government.
You either have to go along or your other option is suicide.

There is no futility in informing people of the realities of the world in which we live. There IS a purpose to people becoming aware of all things. To think otherwise means one has not been paying close enough attention, or is a shill paid to spread doubt and hopelessness.

There are NO absolutes in this world of man (only the word of YHWH is absolute), which means this global ID card/mark thing will not be a complete success. If you believe and read the bible, you will gain insight into how it will ultimately fail.

I hope this plan fails due to lack of funds

Not only do we need to stop a lot of these new items, but we need to hit the "rewind" button and undo over 20 years of legislation. The sooner the better.

The whole thing is this: You either believe in God and His Greater Good or you think you ARE God like the Rockefellers, Bushes,Windsors,etc. In that case, what you say, do, buy, legislate, invent or decide can provide alternatives which mimic what God does. Ex. We have natural healing. Man produced dangerous drugs. We have healthy food, GMOs have caused the deaths of thousands of children! You see what has happened to our society? If we followed God's rules, we would have a wonderful world with fairness to all! Democrats make you think they have leveled the playing field. Only God will do that if you have asked him to and forgiven oppressors.
