					                     The purpose of this presentation is to help inform American
                     citizens that there is a viable alternative to Real ID and measures
                     like Arizona’s SB 1070. We want you to know that there is a
                     straightforward and Constitutional means to validate identity
                     without destroying the presumption of innocence which is the
                     cornerstone in our system of justice.

Feb 5, 2011
My name is Kaye Beach. I am a member of the Board of Directors of
the Constitutional Alliance and have been working with Mark Lerner
for the past few years trying to stop Real ID.
This presentation is mostly based upon a recent article by Mark
Lerner of the Stop Real ID Coalition entitled I Don’t Care Who You
Are: The Government Does” I have simply broken this document
down into chunks by putting it into this format for the purpose of
making it easier to read and understand.
It also draws upon work by the Stop Real ID Coalition, Constitutional
Alliance and the contributions of their membership as well as many
other individuals who have worked tirelessly to inform others about
this issue.

Thank you,
Kaye Beach, The Constitutional Alliance

 Mark Lerner was a confidant of
senior people in the biometrics
industry. After uncovering many
improper acts by top people in the
industry, Mark provided what has
been called a "massive" amount of
evidence to the government. He decided to go public with what
he knew after waiting for nearly two years for Congress and the
public to be given this important information. Since that time,
Mark has testified before many state legislative committees and
is in Washington D.C. on a regular basis supporting the rights of
citizens.
Mark now leads the Stop Real ID Coalition and is a spokesperson
for the Constitutional Alliance, a coalition of individuals and
groups committed to preserving state and national sovereignty,
the unalienable rights to life, liberty, and property as pronounced
in the Declaration of Independence and protected under the Bill
of Rights.

                 Here’s the Problem

  FACT: The federal government is collecting, maintaining
  and sharing American's information globally

  FACT: The Real ID Act (along with a host of other ID
  proposals including Arizona’s SB 1070) facilitates the
  collecting, maintaining and sharing of our vital
  information globally.


  The problem with this can be summed up in a single
  statement:

Americans are being enrolled into a Single Global
Biometric Identifications System that Links A Person’s
Body to their Ability to Buy Sell and Travel.
“The technotronic era involves the gradual appearance of a more controlled
  society. Such a society would be dominated by an elite, unrestrained by
  traditional values. [...] The capacity to assert social and political control
  over the individual will vastly increase. It will soon be possible to assert
  almost continuous surveillance over every citizen and to maintain up-to-
  date, complete files, containing even most personal information about
  the health or personal behavior of the citizen in addition to more
  customary data. These files will be subject to instantaneous retrieval by
  the authorities.”


  -Zbigniew Brzezinski
                This Brings Us to a Question


  Is it possible for the states to manage verification of
 identity and citizenship, when necessary, without
 relying on the federal government?


The answer is in almost all cases is a resounding "Yes“

Furthermore, they should.

Under the US Constitution, driver’s licenses and the issuance
of birth certificates are matters for the states to manage.

Problems




                      Unreal Solutions
The Real ID Act of 2005 and Arizona’s SB 1070 are used as examples but
the same issues that plague these two policies are the same ones that
plague all of the identification policies that use biometrics and requires
this information to be exchanged with the federal government.

               Decisions are being made, laws are being implemented and legislation
               is being considered right now that will go a long way in deciding what
               type of society we each will be living in and what type of society we will
               be leaving for our children and grandchildren
The Problem




              We must each ensure we pass the rights, liberty and
              freedom on to the children of today that we inherited at
              such great sacrifice of previous generations.
          This is why we have gone to great lengths to develop a solution, an alternative. This
          sensible and effective solution is laid out for you in the last third of the presentation.
                                 Who REALLY Wants REAL ID?

              Over 600 organizations oppose Real ID

                     25 states either by law or resolution
                                oppose the Real ID Act 2005.

                    Religious organizations representing
                 every major religion spoke out against the

                               The use of biometrics literally places our religious freedom, privacy, rights

                               international organizations. For many Christians, biometric ID is enrollment into
                               a “mark of the beast-like” system.

               Revelation 13:16-18 is very straightforward.

              Once databases and ID documents are compromised (and they will be) the justification will
              exist to move the identification process from the identification document to directly "on" the
              person.

              The technology to achieve this already exists. And has been in use for some time. It is not the
              RFID chip. The same information can be stored however, in the ink of this tattoo. (More about
              this technology later)

              For the first time in history, the entire world is being enrolled into a single
              system of identification and financial control, based on one’s body.

              For the first time both the political will and technology exist to fulfill prophecy.

An ideal system of identity verification would avoid
exchanging volumes of citizens’ personal information,
including biometrics with the federal government while still
providing an effective means to confirm that we are who we
say we are when there is the need for identification.


                  An ideal identity verification system would address the
                  following issues


                  •Voter fraud
                  • Illegal Immigration to ensure that those
                  who are legally qualified are the only persons who obtain
                  state benefits
                  •Identity theft

                  identification card to facilitate their actions. **

 share this data when the federal

inquiry with the entity that controls the information being queried.**

lives?
                                 We propose SSIVS




            State to State Identity Verification System
                  SSIVS does not require any type of national or
                  more precisely international identification card that
                  would place our religious freedom, privacy, states'
                  rights or sovereignty, at risk.

                 This system does not just answer the need for a
                 document to show or prove citizenship status, it also
                 eliminates the need for federal guidelines for state
                 driver's licenses.

By placing focus on the authentication of the breeder document (birth
certificate), SSIVS provides a strong foundation for ID verification while not
requiring U.S. citizens to be enrolled into single global system of
identification and financial control.
SSIVS would (1)require states to sequentially number all birth certificates
and (2) verify Social Security Number
This can be done directly by states querying the Social Security Administration (not DHS) and
would not require an open ended exchange of information. ONLY the specific data necessary
would be exchanged which narrows and limits it’s use unlike the manner of exchange that
REAL ID and other ID policies would allow
 1                                   Numbering the birth certificates allows
     2                               the EVVE “system” to recognize and
                                     alert the requesting state DMV of an
         3                           attempted duplicate use of one birth
               4                     certificate. **




                                     This prevents the common
                                      practice of using another person's birth
                                     certificate to establish a fraudulent identity
             **Each state or territory would start their numbering sequence with their
             two letter abbreviation to avoid duplication in numbering sequence
                             State to State Identity
                                  Verification
     EVVE
                                  Step by step example
                                                                            DMV
  The SSIVS system would show John Doe used his rightful birth
  certificate to obtain his driver's license or state identification card.


 If another person attempted to use John Doe's birth certificate "the
 system" would recognize that the specific birth certificate in question
 had already been used based on the number assigned to John Doe's
 birth certificate.

If John Doe attempted to use his birth certificate to obtain multiple driver's
licenses in different states "the system" would alert DMV officials that John
Doe had already used his birth certificate and thus John Doe would not receive a
driver's license or state identification card from another state or jurisdiction until
John Doe had turned in his other state’s driver's license or state identification
card.
   What if a US citizen
   wasn’t born in the
          USA?




 Not all citizens are born in the United States
so their birth certificate may not be in the system. In those instances
since immigration and naturalization are matters under the authority
of the federal government, states would need to make inquiry to the
federal government to determine citizenship status and to ensure
that the documents presented are authentic.
                                  In a country of over 300 million
                                  people there will be cases where
                                  states do not have the birth
                                  certificates, certificates of birth
                                  or other acceptable documents
                                  as the state may deem
                                  appropriate to authenticate before
                                  issuing a state driver's license or
                                  state identification card to an
                                  individual.


The states would deem what procedures they would follow in these
very rare cases that the person applying for a state driver's license or
state identification card is not able to have their birth certificate,
certificate of birth or other acceptable documents authenticated.

Hospital records and insurance documents are secondary documents
that we envision a state may use along with other documents.
                         Why State to State Verification is Best
Databases are routinely compromised. We all have heard about credit card companies,
retailers, social networking sites and even state and federal databases being
compromised. The answer should never be to create repositories, centralized
databases or even direct electronic access/linking of databases.

The federal government has had databases compromised by employees, moles and
others. We are all familiar with WikiLeaks and the compromising of hundreds of
thousands of documents.

The best way to protect information is not to have our personal information including
our biometrics in centralized databases. The next best alternative is to spread
information out; diversify and not put all our eggs in one basket. If you had a million
dollars you would not invest it all in one company or stock. You limit your risk through
diversification. The federal government is creating a national repository and worse yet
sharing our information with foreign entities.

It is your information and you have a right to know who is collecting it, what are
they doing with it and whom it is being shared with. The solution we offer
protects your information as much as possible and most importantly your own
respective states can and must be the ones we trust. We have much greater
access to our state lawmakers.
