Enforcement of Real ID Begins

How far we have fallen!

by Mark Lerner (May 19, 2014)

Some dear friends in Michigan sent me a CD of a speech President Reagan, then former Governor Reagan, gave at Hillsdale College in Michigan.  This speech is for all citizens. Many people are not aware that President Reagan was a Democrat for many years before becoming a Republican.  The speech is for all freedom loving people who love OUR country. http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/ronaldreaganhillsdalecollege.htm Read more about How far we have fallen!

Welcome to the April 2014 enforcement of the Real ID Act 2005

by Mark Lerner (April 1, 2014)

Beginning 21 April 2014, citizens of the United States will no longer be able to enter the Department of Homeland Security headquarters building without a Real ID compliant driver’s license (Gold Star) or another acceptable federal ID document such as military ID cards or passports.

In July of 2014 citizens will no longer be able to enter any federal facilities which currently require an ID card without a Real ID compliant driver’s license or other acceptable federal ID document.  One has to wonder if this will apply to members of congress and their staff as well. 

To all those that said “Real ID is dead” your membership in the fortune telling club is hereby revoked.  Many groups have claimed Real ID is dead.  Unfortunately that is not the case. Read more about Welcome to the April 2014 enforcement of the Real ID Act 2005

Comprehensive Immigration Reform

by Mark Lerner (March 27, 2014)

The Constitutional Alliance is providing two documents to educate all people on the details of S744 (Comprehensive Immigration Reform).  One document is titled “S744 Provisions and Comments” and the second document is titled “Four Problems with CIR (Comprehensive Immigration Reform).” 

These documents are the property of Gerald Jenkins.  Gerald is an attorney who worked diligently to provide the documents to the Constitutional Alliance and other parties of interest.  The documents are copyrighted thus they may not be reproduced.  My own relationship with Gerald Jenkins is I was asked to consult with Gerald on the parts of S744 that relate to biometrics.  Although I did provide input for the analysis, the documents were exclusively prepared by Gerald Jenkins. 

Regardless of how any individual person feels about comprehensive immigration reform it is very important that everyone understands how the legislation that has already passed the U.S. Senate will impact all people in the United States.  Currently the House of Representatives is considering individual components of immigration reform. 

Finally, I want to thank Dr. Richard Sobel of the Cyber Privacy Project.  Dr. Sobel is responsible for introducing me to Gerald Jenkins.  Dr. Sobel is a person who I have a great deal of respect for.  Dr. Sobel has done exceptional work examining the relationship between citizens and governments.

A New Look for the Constitutional Alliance Website

by Steve Meyer  (March 26, 2014)

It is my pleasure to introduce the "new look" of the Constitutional Alliance with the implementation of our new web site.

The Constitutional Alliance web site has been the internet face for an alliance which began with 21 founding groups and members.  The Constitutional Alliance is a privately funded nonpartisan non-profit organization whose stated mission is "preserve state and national sovereignty, and the unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness as pronounced in the Declaration of Independence and protected under the Bill of Rights of the United States of America".  The alliance grew and became a primary force in education of legislators, governors, pastors, groups, and individuals.  Read more about A New Look for the Constitutional Alliance Website

Target Stores Credit Card Breach

by Steve Meyer (February 4, 2014) Constitutional Alliance Stop Real ID Coalition

The Target data breach made the news once again today. Over the noon hour while watching the local CBS affiliate, KCCI TV8, one news story drew me to cease all I was doing and respond. CBS perhaps is not so much to blame for anything more than allowing this lunacy to make the televised news.

The story presented an individual who proclaimed that chipping Target's credit cards would have prevented the data breach which occurred while swiping the magnetic credit card strip. He went on to say that chips have been used successfully in Europe, for years. The claim then went to the high cost of putting the chip into the card as the reason why it hasn't been implemented here. Read more about Target Stores Credit Card Breach

The lawsuit filed on my behalf, why it is important to you, and what you are needed to do!

by Kaye Beach  (January 13, 2014)  Constitutional Alliance        Stop Real ID Coalition 

My name is Kaye Beach. I am a mother, wife, patriot and Christian. I made a decision two plus years ago to stand up and fight to protect my rights and in doing so to protect the rights of others. I filed a lawsuit in Oklahoma opposing mandated biometric enrollment. Commonly we think of fingerprints when we think of biometrics but arguably facial recognition is the most invasive of all biometrics. Facial recognition software relies on a high resolution, digital facial image/photograph. In the past the photographs on our driver’s licenses were not facial recognition compatible. Facial recognition software measures the distances between key characteristics of our face such as our eyes, lips, ears and nose. The federal government is now using states as surrogates. The state driver’s license is being used to build a repository of citizen’s biometrics. My lawsuit is ongoing and I must have your help now!

National Identification System (NIDS) versus National ID card

by Mark Lerner   (November 19, 2013)  Constitutional Alliance        Stop Real ID Coalition 

Is one any worse than the other or are they both equally bad?

I would imagine that most people are opposed to both a NIDS and a “National ID Card”. Few people realize for all intents and purposes we already have both. From the outset it is very important to understand that NIDS and a National ID Card are both, in reality, “international.”

The issue of a NIDS versus a “National ID” card is a somewhat complex issue and as a result, this is not a short document. The very nature of the discussion is based on the amount of information that is collected about each of us, how that information is collected, and used; at times without our knowledge or consent.
