Life in post-Constitutional America has progressively become less free, as evidenced by the actions of the federal government and the Congress. One of the latest grand schemes is the resurrection of a previously disclosed, and opposed, plan to track every single one of us.
As reported by The New American magazine, the federal government, over the years, has failed to convince states, on their own, to adopt a national identification system known as REAL ID, a Bush-era concept developed by the newly created Department of Homeland Security (DHS) using technology to verify citizenship. The problem is, the technology would also allow for tracking, much like the retail industry uses RFID – radio frequency identification – to track the movement of goods.
Since about 2005, a majority of state governors have opposed REAL ID, which was initially passed as an anti-terrorism measure in 2004, and which requires the standardization of driver’s licenses and ID cards, for one, over concerns about privacy and the cost of compliance. The 2005 law went into effect this year.
Now, as noted further by TNA, there is a renewed push to formalize REAL ID on a national scale because states continue to oppose it, in the name of fighting illegal immigration:
The controversial plan, embedded in an immigration-enforcement bill, has been in the works for years, but has consistently been met with stiff opposition from liberty-minded grassroots organizations and activists. While the plan has failed in previous Congresses thanks to a groundswell of opposition, critics of the measure say that without prompt action, the unconstitutional scheme could soon become a reality.
That federal measure, the Legal Workforce Act, seeks to prevent illegal immigrants from obtaining jobs in the U.S. One of the more troubling aspects, however, is that the legislation would mandate a national ID card for every American as a condition of working. In addition, every employer in the country would be required to purchase “E-Verify” technology that accesses a national database run by the federal government to see if potential employees have the right to being employed in the country.
Under provisions of the initial REAL ID legislation in the previous administration, notes DHS government approval of licenses is required before Americans can access government buildings or, eventually, board an airplane.
Woe be unto MY Churches and Temples, not leading the people to pray against war in America, this World War III will affect every nation in the world. If you’re not doing this don’t call yourself a church. Don’t call yourself MY Pastor, Prophet, Apostle, Teacher, for you’re not hearing from MY anointing if you can’t hear this now. Spiritual leaders, you will answer to “I AM” YAHUVEH for not leading the people to pray against ID cards and other invasions of privacy. You will be held accountable for not speaking out against your freedom and privacy being taken. Freely you are giving it away. Doesn’t America realize what price they had to pay to get this freedom, to keep this freedom? For you will not see it returned again until YAHUSHUA comes again after the Tribulation.
Your man-made laws now seek to take away your God-Given freedoms I gave America for what you call Home Security. There is no security when people will be treated as criminals, arrested without evidence, judged guilty and executed without even a trial or jury of their peers. Parts of this world already are doing this and America, you shake your head and fingers, and now you are writing laws to do the same? What is the price of privacy? What is the price of freedom to worship? Ask Israel that question for she pays a great price and so have the Christians around the world.
And you who buy your smart phones, which one is the best each year? Which one should I trade in? Now you no longer care if the fingerprint is there. There used to be a time you would fight against your fingerprint being put on a police blotter.
For you were innocent. Why would they need your fingerprint? Why would they need a face scan? Why do they need your iris scanned, your eyes? Your very eyes! A record of your eyes? A voice analyst? You’re too lazy with your new cell phones to even push a button on?
For they want your records. They want your face, DNA.
