Earlier this month, Rep. Bob Goodlatte [R-VA-6] introduced H.R.4760 – Securing America’s Future Act of 2018, a sweeping bill that entails everything from Education and the Workforce to Homeland Security to the military. Also, tucked away in this 400-page behemoth of a bill are the details of a new biometric National ID card that could soon be required for everyone.
Not surprisingly, there is almost no media coverage on this legislation.
H.R. 4760 establishes a mandatory National Identification system that requires all Americans to carry a government-approved ID containing “biometric features.” Without this card, according to the legislation, you will not be able to work in this country.
The legislation was drafted under the auspices of providing a legislative solution for the current beneficiaries of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
However, as Ron Paul points out, “this bill would give DACA recipients a 3-year renewable legal status while forcing a biometric National ID card on virtually everyone else.”
Naturally, this bill is wholeheartedly supported by the anti-immigration sect and has gained 70 co-sponsors already in only a few days. As with most police state-promoting legislation, fear of illegal immigration is being pushed to garner such support. However, as Ron Paul points out, the bill won’t just target illegals—it targets everyone—and it will use your most private information to track you.
“Under the statists’ National ID scheme, you’d be forced to carry around your National ID card, tied to this massive database, chockfull of biometric identifiers like fingerprints and retina scans,” Paul noted. “Without this ID, you won’t be able to legally hold a job — or likely even open a bank account or even board a plane!”
Paul said there is a very good chance this bill will become law as the support for it seems overwhelming. He laid out three key factors that are detrimental to the freedom of all Americans.
- Allow federal bureaucrats to include biometric identification information on the card, potentially even including fingerprints, retinal scans, or scans of veins on the back of hands, which could easily be used as a tracking device;
- Be required for all U.S. workers regardless of place of birth, making it illegal for anyone to hold a job in the United States who doesn’t obtain an ID card;
- Require all employers to purchase an “ID scanner” to verify the ID cards with the federal government. Every time any citizen applies for a job, the government would know — and you can bet its only a matter of time until “ID scans” will be required to make even routine purchases, as well.
The control freaks in the US government have been trying for years to pass a National ID card law and it has been successfully resisted every time. This time, however, it appears that the Republicans—who used to be vocally opposed to such measures—are now fully on-board likely because of the bill’s anti-immigration language.
As Paul points out,
For years now, statists in BOTH parties have been fighting to RAM their radical National ID-database scheme into law.
In fact, this scheme was a key portion of the infamous failed “Comprehensive Immigration Reform” bills BOTH parties tried to ram through during the Obama administration.
Now, using the momentum behind Trump’s tough talk on immigration and border security, I’m afraid the statists believe the best way to finally enact their National ID scheme is by promoting their bill on Capitol Hill as a “DACA fix” while they sell it to the GOP base as a border “security” measure.
Of course, that’s nothing more than a buzzword meant to trick Americans from all over the country into thinking that Congress is going to seal our southern border.
But in reality, it means something far different.
The “security” members of BOTH parties in the U.S. House want doesn’t target any U.S. border. Instead, it’s meant to create an all-out police state within them.
The truth is, this is exactly the type of battle that often decides whether a country remains free or continues sliding toward tyranny.
Paul’s Campaign for Liberty is planning a massive crusade against this tyrannical legislation in the form of billboards, commercials, and other advertising. He’s even started a petition to let your representative know how you feel about them ushering in a new level of despotism and control. You can sign this petition here.

This is so F’d up. The countries [like India] that have already done this have already been hacked. For God’s sake just leave us alone! Scans very often misidentify people, scans can hurt your retinas, and if they have your DNA they can easily engineer a virus to kill you. NO NO NO NO!!!
CAWS agree wholeheartedly. They would be able to identify those with viable organ matches for transplant to some elitist at the top of list before you have a voluntary contrived accident.
I hate to have to say this, but this is fake news. You have to check both sides. ALL the time.
While the term “biometric” is used in the text of the bill, there is no provision for the issuance of a national ID card. The “biometric” documentation referenced in the bill is in relation to foreign workers and doesn’t specify what that document should be. It is at the discretion of the DHS (which isn’t comforting” but doesn’t apply to a U.S. citizen.
An unexpired driver’s license, passport, etc… is considered adequate identification for the employment eligibility verification.
In section 1103 – Paragraph 8 – section A, it states “No National Identification Card. – Nothing in the section shall be construed to authorize, directly or indirectly, the issuance or use of national identification cards or the establishment of a national identification card.”
Yes, but it is as others here have mentioned a ‘foot in the door’. The State have been trying to chip us for decades now, this is the ‘foot in the door’ since people are not jumping on the getting chipped band wagon. And, it doesn’t mean within months there will be ratifying of the bill, for our ‘safety’ and ‘security’ against ‘foreigners’, ‘invaders’, ‘insurgents’, ‘terrorists’, ‘illegals’, etc. It is how kakistocracies operate.
you forget that an “unexpired” driver’s licence, passport, etc… will expire (anywhere between tomorrow and five years time, at which time, the renewal / replacement requires that you also have annexure B or c or z or 123 or whatever to complete annexure B or c, etc…
before you know it, you need a justice to verify your oath (including proof of vaccinations etc… not necessarily oath of allegiance, but oath that this particular statement is true) before you can renew your licence or your passport (with all the fun and games that the TSA entails) or putting your kids into school, or even the boy scouts
Dude, or Dudess, you are simply uninformed about what you don’t know. The 2005 Real I.D. Act made my state issue me a new holographic full data base facial recognition tech Driver’s license photo (two pictures, actually) with a special ‘star’ designation if I want to use it to travel by air, when my old one recently expired.
And yeah, sure, you’re right about section 1103, etc. But since when did that stop any above the law government from undermining the Consitution? Just look at all the 2nd/A and 4th/A violations happening every single day of every single year and growing, and now even illegal legislation accordingly defying the Constitutional uninfringeable law of the Land?
That’s what Totalitarian agendas are ALL about?
And they’ll continue to do it as long as We, the lazy-ass Sheeple, LET them do it!
You really need to read stuff dude… this is right there
““(A) NO NATIONAL IDENTIFICATION CARD.—Nothing in this section shall be construed to authorize, directly or indirectly, the issuance or use of national identification cards or the establishment of a national identification card.”
FAKE NEWS SITE YET AGAIN…
What did they say about the Social Security Number? “Never to be use for identification”, it used to say it right on the card! Now you can’t get a job with out one. It’s called the ‘foot in the door’ strategy, once they can force you on to a system, they can then modify it at will.
That is correct. How the kakistocracy gains power and control, a little at a time, a bit of social engineering here, a little there. Doesn’t matter, the ‘ruling’ families will still be around generations later. It actually states in the Constitution that a ‘states man’ can rectify, modify, create any laws or legislation without the permission of the citizenry if for ‘national security’. Perhaps not the exact wording, but the meaning is true.
Under a “State of Emergency” they don’t have to follow the consititution. Congress re-ups it every year, they just did last month with the ‘opiod crisis’. Been going on since 1933, and really since Lincoln in 1861, his declaration of Martial Law was never undone.
Yeah, Jas, interesting point. ‘State of emergency’ whether officially declared or simply ‘imagined’ for agenda purposes. Right up there with police state tactics based on the imagined need for “Extreme Crime Prevention” where there is no crime, unless caused by the government, for the specious notion of “Public Safety”.
As far the great ‘Opiod crisis’ which was likely around before even 1933 when all those Chinese railroad laborers were imported, at any given time about 60-80% of the American populate was on some form of ‘mother’s little helper’ of either opiates, alcohol, pot, or coca plants or whatever, but since none of it was illegal, nobody gave a shit and the police state couldn’t make a terrorist profit off it, so the dark state PTB could facilitate their NWO totalitarian enslavement agenda!
Right. I didn’t think back far enough did I? lol, We, the human race are in trouble. Every conquered and occupied peoples are in a constant state of ‘national security’ ‘martial law’.
The last time I looked semantics never trumps physical reality. Or as the old say goes; if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, talks like a duck…………..If every single person is required to always have it on their person and without it they cannot conduct their normal course of activities in their daily lives, it is a national I.D. card with all the baggage, dangers and threats to our freedoms that implies.
“Congress” has been using fraudulent titles to mislead the citizenry to dismantle the Constitution, steal their freedoms and their money for more than a hundred years. The all time classic has to be the “FEDERAL” Reserve which is of course a flat out lie. There is nothing “federal” about a private for profit banking cartel. But hey, if you want to believe what government says rather than what they are actually doing, have at it.
unfortunately they never listen!!!!!
funny how no one is talking about the real id act of 2005 though which really IS real!!!! really really, really. oh and for all of the hysteria – no one talking about 2/3 of the text of obamacare still having the force of law behind it…. but that would be another bill that these people wont read in order to understand what the problem is with that. Brainwashed to think that if the individual mandate is gone then it’s “all good” now.
I wish everyone would wake up to the truth about Ron Paul. He’s no more “one of us” than Hillary or Trump. Ron Paul does the Tubal-Cain Pass Grip of a Master Mason handshake to show allegiance to the Craft as an adept. He’s a lying fraud.
“Synarchy…is ‘government by secret societies’, or by a group of initiates who operate from behind the scenes. It is an analogue of ‘theocracy’, or rule by a priesthood.” ~ Marquis Alexandre Saint-Yves d’Alveydre
Ron Paul, married to an Eastern Star, the female branch of Freemasonry (freemasons believe Lucifer is God and are tools of the Vatican who also believe Lucifer is God) reveals his true (Zionist, Fabian, Freemasonic dissembling) colors by maintaining that Islamic terrorists destroyed the Twin Towers on 9-11, and that the U.S. Military should be used against them. “Why are we taking precious military and intelligence resources away from tracking down those who did attack the United States–and who may again attack the United States–and using them to invade countries that have not attacked the United States? 22.” (Ron Paul Speaks, fn. 22 Ron Paul, “Questions That Won’t Be Asked About Iraq,” U.S. House of Representatives, Sept. 10, 2002.)
The truth is, Ron Paul is a free trade globalist who desires an international currency. The following statement was made by Congressman Paul in an address to the House of Representatives in 2001:
“There’s nothing to fear from globalism, free trade and a single worldwide currency…. The effort in recent decades to unify government surveillance over all world trade and international financial transactions through the UN, IMF, World Bank, WTO, ICC, the OECD, and the Bank of International Settlements can never substitute for a peaceful world based on true free trade, freedom of movement, a single but sound market currency, and voluntary contracts with private property rights…. The ultimate solution will only come with the rejection of fiat money worldwide, and a restoration of commodity money. Commodity money if voluntarily and universally accepted could give us a single world currency requiring no money managers, no manipulators orchestrating a man-made business cycle with rampant price inflation.” (Congressional Record, 13 March 2001)
Regarding this mandatory ID, the de facto corporation pretending to be “the government” operates under color of law consent, so nothing can be forced on us according to their own kangaroo court system of admiralty (martial law, same thing). So stop consenting to tyrants and liars who trick you into their webs of deceit by telling you you’re living in a democratic republic with rights and are free when the sad truth is, in their jurisdiction, which we must put ourselves in (giving evidence against ourselves like ID which is hearsay), everything is illegal without permission including not having ID. In their form of law which has zero authority unless we give it to them, we are all slaves to uphold the debt, and slaves don’t have rights, only privileges for which we must first ask permission (via licences, registrations, etc) then pay. Slaves don’t even own property because they ARE property (of the fed).
Getting married is illegal without permission, feeding the hungry or having a lemonade stand in your front yard is illegal, working is illegal, going to school is illegal, fishing is illegal, driving is illegal, even giving birth is illegal without license, registration, certification, permits, and other contracts. All these things put us into their color of law jurisdiction, and the only way to escape them (and their tyranny) is to stop asking them permission to do everything and expose them for the lying frauds they are.
so true!!!! I’ve been saying this for years. He’s a treasonous coward like all the 535 members of the fed government. The US Gov, and its allies (?), are destroying this planet through pollution, including EM pollution, wars, resource depletion, weather modification and GMOs. They should all be imprisoned without a trial. Its obvious what crimes they have committed against this planet and its people.
I agree. They are, the kakistocracies, are Diseases to Humanity.
That is exactly correct. People should really read the Constitution and cognitively think about the use of the words in it. The only reason it was done in the first place was because of Shay’s Rebellion throwing ‘judges’ out of courthouses. But, yes, the hierarchical oligarchs still believe in the Master – Slave system and will never not. Every kakistocracy is designed by the ‘masters’ and also sign international agreements with all other kakistocracies designed for supremacy over the masses. As the socially engineered masses becomes more docile, the psychopathic kakistocracy becomes more blatantly fierce, more overt in their oppression tactics, more brutal. So yeah, slaves we are. People need to stop believing in kakistocracies(governance, govern=control, mentos=mind, mind control) and stop having faith in their currency-to-enslavement programs. Currency is their absolute means of control, and it only has intrinsic and extrinsic value if people have ‘faith’ in it. Great post, comments and assessments, I enjoyed reading it.
Backatcha with the great posts, comments and assessments, especially this one, you nailed it. Cheers~
Don’t you find it a bit queer that Ron Paul will be the keynote speaker at Berwick’s Anarchopulco event next month? hmmm? (((They))) do more with False Opposition than the things we supposedly oppose. Trump will get 50 times more accomplished than Hill and Bill could ever have dreamed of…. and with no resistance, whatsoever.
Considering they wrote the book on controlled opposition, no, it’s not queer, it’s what they do best – they’ve been infiltrating and controlling opposition for hundreds of years. Take for example the Bundy debacle, the Bundys are one of the most powerful families in the US whose members were Skull & Bones and high-ranking government officials – that whole thing was a psyop, like a BETA test to see who would oppose them with arms. Believe me, names were taken and most probably put on the terrorist watchlist.
Trump is only a puppet with zero power and won’t get a bloody thing accomplished unless it involves removing more unalienable rights, costing us a fortune, and creating more chaos because that’s precisely what he was hired to do. We don’t have elections, we only polled for our opinion, and the results are only used to manufacture consent because that’s how corporations work, and the government is only a corporation, and a foreign one, at that.
We don’t get to choose the CEOs of corporations, which is what our government is. When was the last time Amazon or CNN asked us who should be their CEO? Never. I resist Trump, just as I resisted Hillary, Bill, the Bushes, and every other lying DC fraud perpetrating the false narrative that we’re a democratic republic when nothing could be farther from the truth. Cheers~~
Thanks. You know what? I have never checked my Disqus account. Ignorance and stupidity on my part. I just thought there was no conversations going on. My bad. I should’ve been in here commenting and conversing. I will not ignore anyone any longer now that I know. Cheers times 2 Grace by Faith.
Right. A “license” is defined as permission [by a governmental body] to engage in an activity, without which it is illegal or a tort. So the de-facto government (to which most people have pledged allegiance ) may likely view you as a criminal for feeding the homeless, selling raw milk, fishing, growing a fruit/vegetable garden, driving a “motor vehicle” and so forth! Even though you have committed NO crime under the common law (i.e., no harm or damage to persons/property), the legal fiction… State of ______, County of ______, etc… asserts that they are the aggrieved party.
Very well stated, David. Bravo! Cheers~
Except the elite had obama aggressively surround Russia, and had paid for hillary, and war. Trump returned with the peace they do not profit from. He’s made a lot of the, war mongering, and pedophile elite who have been ruling, his enemies. Peace is only one of the many things he’s trying to accomplish.
Quote:Congress Quietly Pushing Bill To Require National Biometric ID For “ALL Americans”
Question: Wouldn’t it be easier to microchip them all like cattle ??
After all goyim = Cattle ?
one step at a time…. (((they))) have all the counterfeit currency they want. No rush. No need for Frog in the Pot
Frog in the pot ?? I’m sorry, to tell you, that the Frog is in the pot & the heat is rising ??
Yes. It’s a card, not a chip.
But…But… Micro-chipping would be more effective ?? Difficult to do a forgery ??
Every agency (black/grey/white) already has 1000’s of photos of your face from walmart – street cams – the DMV ect… with modern facial recognition they don’t need anything else… cointelpro trying to create hysteria via these kind of posts. Most phones come preloaded with so much spyware that it is laughable that anyone thinks they’d go through the trouble to microchip anyone who didn’t actually want to be chipped.
DACA kids should apply by March and become legal by eoy, or get out.
I won’t be getting any biometric id or the sign of the beast.
Well Activist Post just regurgitates whatever suits their fancy. They do zero investigative journalism, nor do they care about what is published on their sites. They’re hacks, and its about money….nothing more.
What did they publish that was incorrect?
So, please confirm your comments with credible information: facts and evidence. This is actually one of the best information sites available.
No way should natural born Americans be subject to these fascist tactics
Here’s where it started: “In 1938 the Nazis obliged men of military age and Jews (who had a ‘J’ marked on their card) to carry identity cards. Shortly after the start of the war, this was extended to apply to all citizens over the age of 15.” Wikipedia
BREAKING NEWS, FELLOW PATRIOTS! THERE ALREADY IS A NAZI STYLE ‘YOUR PAPERS PLEASE’ NATIONAL I.D. CARD IN PLACE BY LAW!!!
It’s called the ‘Real I.D.’ act of 2005 which mandates all states to comply with changing drivers license protocol to include facial or biometric identification scanning capabilities and other data base tracking info for police authorities to violate your 4th/A rights with. It was a back door totalitarian mission creep tactic ostensibly to keep potential terrorists out of critical areas like military bases and on airline flights. Except for one thing. I don’t need any freaking ‘REAL I.D.’ to get into a military base because I already have a REAL MILITARy ISSUED I.D. to get on bases. And my regular driver’s license is good enough to travel with the airlines along with my passport if going overseas. Which is more than enough since the TCA requires knowing about every molecule in your body before risking on you on board.
So why do they ;Really ‘Need’ this type of UnConstitutional 4th/A privacty intrusion and concentrated agenda to know where you live, where you go, and how often you move around, and everything else they can ‘database’ about you on the new double bar-coded holograph pictured drivers licenses being issued now?
It’s not that difficult when you put 2+2 together and add a couple more things. They already have the FISA act renewed last week, which stole all your internet and phone privacy and information. They can and are cloud banking everything you do on the www even if they don’t focus analyze it now. The 2005 Real I.D. act had until 2020 to allow all states to comply. It’s taking too long to implement for their social enslavement agenda. The Marxist Democrats and their well integrated ‘Deep State’ Nazis realize – with this Trump anomaly– that although We, the Sheeple’ have a problem with liberty motivation maintenance because of our socially programmed laziness, that sometimes, though, this big, bad, freedom loving dawg can at times wake up from its daily snooze and take back our government! So the totalitarians aren’t taking any chances next time and are pulling out all stops and preparing for immediate police state NWO affirmation and concrete authoritarian establishment immediately and harshly when they gain government control again, by setting up these little laws to greatly facilitate an immediate totalitarian state of control to effective undermine the entire Constitution when they get in power once more?
So they pop in this kind of specious ‘public safety’ ploy to facilitate the goal of creating ABSOLUTELY NO INDIVIDUAL PRIVACY that the government cannot invade. Couple that with the new ‘Fed Coin’ (block chain Bit coin knock-off), also coming soon to a theater near you as soon as the big banksters get their computers set up, Yellen is already talking seriously about it. They’ll then make FedCoin the official u.s. digital currency and then make another new law to disable cash as currency and make any larger amounts than token pocket chump change for novelty purposes, just as they did for private gold hoarding in the 30;s. Which won’t be accepted in banks anymore as legal tender. Now effectively having full knowledge of everything you ever buy and have again in your life! All your banking records, your assets, which they’ll then tax you more on, to manipulate more for them and less for you, along with the inevitable socialized agenda restrictions, like what you are ‘allowed’ to consume,,,again, for the good of general ‘public safety’.
And guess what after that? Let me put it like this… How valuable is life itself, when a totalitarian government knows everything possible about you and controls everiything you do in your financial and personal life?!
Let’s get off our potato chip asses, folks, while we still can. And start getting on the heroic Sentator Paul’s WarWagon and push back these Tyrants while we still can. We got a big break with Trump and his MAGA agenda. But it looks like he’s drowning in the same swamp he thought he was going to drain. Too many deep/dark alligators dragging him down.
This is our last chance! Start bugging your representatives about anti-Constitutional Bills like this, NOW!
Thank you GOP… and I guess Trump will proudly sign it and proclaim how this is what MAGA is all about. Welcome to 666.
Is this the mark of the beast Scripture speaks of?? Funny Illegals aren’t required to have it?? What are they up too??
At least it’s not a mandatory chip. It’s not quite a mark. I can walk away from a card. Unless I’m being charged I can withhold my ID. Not that I promote this.
And the Police State seeks to tighten it’s grip on We the American People. Yes there is The elite class and we the Serfs.
