Warning to an American Patriot:

Shortly, all 50 States, under the directive of the Obama Administration’s Department of Homeland Security, will be required to federalize their driver’s licenses, effectively converting what was a uniquely, “local” state drivers’ license into what amounts to a “National ID Card”—or, as some opponents to the concept during the Clinton years called it, “a United States Internal Passport.”

REAL I.D. was enacted in 2005, to make it more difficult for people who are not citizens, to secure a state-issued driver’s license. The law takes effect in May, 2011. At that time, every States will be required to create a drivers’ license that conforms to new federal “standards.”

In short: REAL I.D. allows the government to convert your state issued drivers’ license into a REAL Nazi/Communist-style National Identification Card, with all the scary attributes of an Internal Passport like people in Nazi/Communist-Europe were required to carry.

When did that happen here? It happened in 2005, when you were more concerned about terrorists than civil liberties. Congress passed the Real ID Act on May 11, 2005, which created new bio-metric national standards for state-issued drivers’ licenses. The new law also requires those who do not drive to have a state-issued “non-driver” ID card.

Not just the federal government, but states will be able to quickly (at a moment’s notice!) share 18 different points of private information about you, personally. And we must stop this STEALING of our personal identity. Will you help us by faxing every single Member of the U. S. Congress to STOP this personal invasion of your privacy? YES, IDENTITY THEFT HAS ALREADY HAPPENED TO YOU—THANKS TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT!

Please CLICK HERE to FAX every Member of Congress to tell them to REPEAL, RESCIND, or CUT THE FUNDING to implement REAL I.D. This is so important that, if we lose this one, personal liberty in the United States will have been lost, perhaps permanently! And, please, give the best GIFT that you can to the United States Justice Foundation (USJF) as we fight against this government intrusion into every aspect of our daily lives. It will be an expensive fight. But what is at stake is our individual LIBERTY.

The controversial 2005 bill designed to create national standards for driver’s licenses is doing far more than that, according to a report released last week by the Center for Immigration Studies. The report, authored by Janice Kephart, Director of National Security Policy at CIS, offered an update on the implementation status of the Real ID Act in each state. The results were frightening. “Real ID is alive and well and it is being implemented,” Kephart said. Most states are already compliant well before the deadline. Personal data about you has already been taken and it has been stored in a dossier about you.

In addition to the rehash of the 1993 Clinton National ID Card, the impetus for REAL ID stemmed from recommendations from the 9/11 Commission, although the standards established by the 9/11 Commission have already been repealed. REAL ID requires State driver’s license authorities to use more stringent measures to verify Social Security numbers, birth dates, addresses, proof of citizenship and immigration status. The act prescribes 18 SEPARATE SECURITY CONTROLS that States are now required to use when issuing driver’s licenses.

And this information will be available to law enforcement officials in all other States. If you were stopped in any State for speeding, the police in that State can “read” the database assigned to your card and virtually “share your information” over the Internet with any other government agency in any state. The presumptions of “unreasonable search” are gone forever, since any semblance of real privacy ceases to exist when REAL ID goes into effect.

Please CLICK HERE to FAX every Member of Congress to tell them to REPEAL, RESCIND, or CUT THE FUNDING to implement REAL I.D. This is so important that, if we lose this one, personal liberty in the United States will have been lost, perhaps permanently! And, please, give the best GIFT that you can to the United States Justice Foundation (USJF) as we fight against this government intrusion into every aspect of our daily lives. It will be an expensive fight. But what is at stake is our individual LIBERTY.

In addition to some First Amendment concerns, the REAL ID Act violates the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, because driver’s license, as such, should come under state laws, not the laws of the federal government. It violates the Tenth Amendment in reference to state powers and obliterates the states’ dual sovereignty with the federal government.

Have you ever considered entrusting your private information to the federal government? Of course not—especially now! But now that they are consolidating every piece of information about every American into a universal federal database, you are now much more vulnerable to identity thieves.

How many times have you recently read about hackers stealing information on thousands of people from credit card company databases? Now, ALL OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WILL BE AT RISK!

The REAL ID Act implementation will make it much easier for the federal government to track every American—which is the purpose for it under the REAL ID Act. This is an outright invasion of your privacy. You must tell your Member of Congress this. We need to make sure that those in Congress understand that you object to government having more information than they absolutely need to know to tax you, or to send you a check. Anything else is not their business. We must do everything that we can to invalidate the May 11, 2011 “peeper deadline,” when the Department of Homeland Security and the Commerce Department will begin to amass a database on every American, something that they were previously forbidden from legally having.

Eventually, READ ID-compliant cards will be REQUIRED for air travel, access to federal buildings, and even for receiving federal benefits, such as Social Security. A Federal agency will not be able to accept, for any official purpose, a driver’s license or identification card issued by any state to any person, unless the state is meeting the requirements specified in the REAL ID Act.

Please CLICK HERE to FAX every Member of Congress to tell them to REPEAL, RESCIND, or CUT THE FUNDING to implement REAL I.D. This is so important that, if we lose this one, personal liberty in the United States will have been lost, perhaps permanently! And, please, give the best GIFT that you can to the United States Justice Foundation (USJF) as we fight against this government intrusion into every aspect of our daily lives. It will be an expensive fight. But what is at stake is our individual LIBERTY.

Before a REAL ID can be issued, the applicant must provide the following documentation:
1. A photo ID, or a non-photo ID that includes his or her full legal name and birth date
2. Documentation of birth date
3. Documentation of legal status and Social Security number
4. Documentation showing name and principal residence address.

Digital images of each identity document will be stored in each State Department of Motor Vehicles database. And, according to some opponents of REAL ID, this is only the beginning of the information and documentation that the state governments will be required to obtain and to put on the card!

The Department of Homeland Security claims this cannot be construed as a “National ID Card,” because the cards are issued by the states. However, the national READ ID law establishes NATIONAL STANDARDS that the states must adhere to. So, when you hear the rhetoric, it is just that—rhetoric. It’s federal government “double-talk.” Please help us stop this federal intrusion into your privacy right now.

The liberal American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland says: “The law places no limits on potential required uses for Real IDs.” In time, Real IDs could be required to vote, collect a Social Security check, access Medicaid, open a bank account, go to an Orioles game, or buy a gun. The private sector could begin mandating a Real ID to perform countless commercial and financial activities, such as renting a DVD or buying car insurance. Ultimately, just as Social Security Cards were never supposed to be used for ID purposes, Real ID drivers’ license will, very quickly, become de facto national ID cards, which is why people who don’t drive will still need to carry one.

This is so important that, if we lose this one, personal liberty in the United States will have been lost, perhaps permanently!

It will be an expensive fight. But what is at stake is our individual LIBERTY.

The “machine-readable technology,” as required by REAL ID, would convert state-issued driver licenses and identification cards into TRACKING DEVICES, allowing computers to pinpoint and record people’s whereabouts anytime that they are identified. Under REAL ID, all state drivers’ license databases will be linked. This will allow information in a person’s ID database in any state to be accessible by officials in any other State, or by the federal government.

In 1998 the Clinton Administration tested such a privately-funded card without the consent or knowledge of Congress. Their card was part of a special healthcare program funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The program was initated in five western States and entailed giving women with dependent children free healthcare in the pilot project that actually tested the effectiveness of the biometric cards, which electronically monitored the whereabouts of the cardholder 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by GPS. The test lasted one year. It was deemed to be a success. Our federal government does have the ability, and the desire, to track the whereabouts of its human capital while they work, when they play, and where they sleep. REAL ID, in other words, is REAL Intrusive.

Please, USJF needs your support. We need that support right now, so we can make a genuine difference in protecting your individual privacy!



This REAL ID Act is diametrically opposed to the Jeffersonian principles of individual liberty, free markets, and limited government.

This legislation needs to be repealed and/or, under the Unfunded Mandates Act of 1994, the ability of the federal government to enforce it must be eliminated. There is no time to waste!

We really do need your urgent financial support to continue to do all that we can do to stop this intrusion into every aspect of your daily life. And, if we cannot persuade Congress to stop this attack on our liberty, we must file a lawsuit, challenging this law, to legally preserve YOUR privacy.

Dear C4L Supporter,

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives will hold a vote to repeal ObamaCare.

While it’s nice that House Republicans are keeping their promise to hold a vote to repeal this socialized medicine scheme, the reality is that with Harry Reid in control of the Senate and Barack Obama in the White House, a full repeal is just not possible.

Given this political reality, no member of Congress is staring at the end of their career by voting for repeal.

Some liberty activists are afraid Republicans are trying to get away with an “Oh well, we tried” vote they know is going nowhere in order to wash their hands of their campaign trail, pro-liberty rhetoric.

This harkens back to the Bush Era, when Republicans would pay lip service to liberty issues while voting to massively expand the size and scope of government.

That’s why it’s vital you contact your Representative, especially if they are a Republican, and send a clear message that you will not tolerate empty gestures as a substitute for meaningful action.

You see, spending bills must originate in the House, so the newly elected Republican majority holds powerful cards.  House Republicans can vote to defund programs and agencies tasked with implementing ObamaCare.

Contact Rep. Spencer Bachus by phone at (202) 225-4921 and insist Congress take real action against ObamaCare by voting to defund this freedom-stealing legislation and rollback any regulation that restricts health freedom.

Let your Representative know you haven’t stopped paying attention now that the election is over, and that the wave that swept them into office can just as easily sweep them out should they not do everything in their power to restore fiscal sanity and our lost freedom by defunding ObamaCare and eliminating intrusive regulations.

So please, contact Rep. Spencer Bachus by phone at (202) 225-4921 and send a clear message that, while voting to repeal ObamaCare is a good start, you will not forgive or forget should this Congress not take meaningful action to defund ObamaCare and eliminate big government regulations that restrict our health freedom.

In Liberty,

John Tate

President

P.S. Campaign for Liberty is fighting to defund ObamaCare and hold the new Congress accountable for its pro-liberty rhetoric.  Only your support allows us to keep on the pressure.  If you are able, please chip in $10 today to help us turn up the heat.

Dear American Patriot:

President Obama is just hours away from enacting new firearms regulations.

Please take time to read this URGENT message and find out how you can protect your precious Second Amendment Rights, before it’s too late.

Respectfully,

Alan M. Gottlieb
Chairman
Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms


RED ALERT: OBAMA CREATING NATIONAL GUN REGISTRY!

Since taking office two years ago, Obama has consistently bypassed Congress and has given the federal government control of almost every aspect of our lives.

NOW HE’S COMING FOR YOUR SECOND AMENDMENT RIGHTS.

Citing border violence, the ATF has issued an “emergency order” requiring any store that sells more than two rifles within a five-day period to report the names, addresses and serial numbers of those transactions if the firearms are greater than .22-caliber, semi-automatic, with the ability to accept a detachable magazine.

If it’s so important, why didn’t Obama allow Congress to vote on it? Because Congress wouldn’t touch it. And if it’s all in the name of border security, as he insists, why does it apply to every state and not just border states?

This regulation is expected to take effect Wednesday, January 5th!

Please stop RIGHT NOW and Fax every Member of Congress. Tell them you OBJECT to Obama taking away your Constitutional freedoms! You are the only thing that stands in the way of Obama’s radical, anti-gun agenda! Please include a donation to CCRKBA so we can continue to fight these kinds of assaults on our Second Amendment Rights!

Obama is attempting to regulate a fundamental, individual right guaranteed under the U.S. Constitution—but it shouldn’t surprise you, because he’s done nothing but “regulate” us to death since he’s been in office.

The Obama administration has known about this ATF proposal for months, but they kept it quiet, knowing that people like you and me would be outraged.

And he was right, we are outraged! Please stop RIGHT NOW and Fax every Member of Congress. Tell them you OBJECT to Obama taking away your Constitutional freedoms! Please include a donation to CCRKBA so we can continue to fight these kinds of assaults on our Second Amendment Rights!

Don’t wait! You don’t want to wake up and find out that Obama has taken away your rights!

Barack Obama is openly hostile to your gun rights. He has chosen a very strong, anti-Second Amendment ATF head for an administrative job that has far more influence over the practical exercise of the Second Amendment rights than any other job in the country.

Now that very agency is going to require stores to report their sales transactions! You can be sure this is only the beginning!

This regulation is expected to be approved unless there is IMMEDIATE and VEHEMENT objection from Members of Congress and the public.

So, don’t wait, Fax Congress RIGHT NOW and tell them to stop this assault on our freedom! Please include a generous donation to CCRKBA so we can continue to fight for our right to bear arms! You are the only thing that stands in the way of Obama’s radical, anti-gun agenda!

Let me be clear how urgent this is: registration requirements will go into effect THIS WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 5th unless YOU AND I stop it!

Fax Congress NOW and donate to CCRKBA so we can prevent Obama’s unconstitutional intrusion on our rights!

Mexican President Felipe Calderon has repeatedly blamed the U.S. for Mexico’s problems with violence, despite evidence to the contrary. Now Obama is taking away freedoms from legitimate, law-abiding citizens while he ignores our open borders and tramples all over the Constitution—all in the name of “security.”

Obama spent the month of December trying to push amnesty for millions of illegal aliens through Congress, and NOW he’s all of a sudden concerned about border security?

I don’t buy it! This is just an excuse to push through FIREARMS REGISTRATION WITHOUT CONGRESSIONAL APPROVAL. And it’s the first step in taking away your Second Amendment rights.

You do not want to wake up tomorrow—or any day—and discover that your gun rights have been taken away by this administration! Contact Congress right now and stop this ATF regulation! And please include a generous donation, so CCRKBA can keep watch over this administration’s efforts to take away your Second Amendment rights!

Each year, firearms are used more than 60 times more often to protect the lives of honest citizens than to take lives. But Obama would rather treat US as criminals, and bow to the rhetoric of another country, than honor the Constitution. The time for action is now.

You and I know how precious our freedoms are, and how much we appreciate the Constitution. But Obama just doesn’t get it. He is chipping away at our freedoms every single day, ignoring the will of the People, ignoring Congress, ignoring the rule of law. Is this latest attempt to end our Second Amendment Rights going to be the straw that broke the camel’s back? Will this spur you to take action and stop his dictatorship?

Please give the largest gift that you possibly can to CCRKBA as we EXPOSE Obama’s agenda to take away our Second Amendment rights, and stop his unlawful ATF regulation from taking effect.

Greetings to a True American,

The 112th Congress will soon be in session.

Mr. Barack Obama will have much more difficulty in passing his socialistic agenda.

But now the odds are in the favor of Constitutional-based Americans, like you.

The November 2nd elections told the real story. Conservative voices now will be heard, especially when it comes to REINING IN:

  1. Government expansion of control
  2. Government spending like there is NO TOMORROW!

Many people seem to think that even with a Republican majority in the Senate and a slight-majority to the Democrats in the U.S. Senate, that even Mr. Obama’s VETO PEN would still have his agenda in place.

NOT SO!
There is a weapon against the Obama agenda for the United States!!

It’s a 1996 law called the Congressional Review Act!

However—with only 47 Senators in the 112th Congress, the conservatives will lack a majority, let alone a supermajority, to pass the legislation they would need to pass to UNDO Obama’s “accomplishments” and dull his progress.

Please FAX every Member of the U.S. Congress and ask them to use the Congressional Review Act to SLOW the Obama agenda. Be sure to include a generous DONATION to AmeriPAC as we remain on the forefront of this issue.

The CRA will be the conservative’s most effective tool to curb Mr. Obama’s socialistic agenda.

Please. Please urge every member of Congress to use this “ultimate weapon” against the use of Executive Orders that bypass Congress.

The Congressional Review Act (CRA) provides the U.S. Congress with an expedited process by which to evaluate branch regulations, and then give the President a chance to agree or disagree.

House Republicans will have carte blanche next year, and will be able to pass as many of the “resolutions of disapproval” as they want. The key is that a small minority in the U.S. Senate can force votes on them as well, and they required only simple-majority support to pass. If they can find only four conservative democrats to vote with them on these resolutions, they can force Obama to serially veto politically potent measures to block unpopular regulations, and create a chilling effect on the federal agencies charged with writing them.

This will help to create an “openness” that Mr. Obama originally promised, but never delivered. According to U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC): “We need to make sure Americans know what’s going on.”

Despite the Democratic surge to compel Republicans to approve a measure, the conservatives are hoping to draw Democratic votes away to block any of Mr. Obama’s agenda.

Please FAX every Member of the U.S. Congress and ask them to use the Congressional Review Act to SLOW the Obama agenda. Be sure to include a generous DONATION to AmeriPAC as we remain on the forefront of this issue.

U.S. Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) says: “They’re pushing through a lot of bad policy at the executive level. We need to figure out how to rein it in.”


U.S. Senator Jim DeMint:
reining in expenses.


U.S. Senator Jim DeMint went on to explain: “We’ve got several bills—I’ve got the REINS Act, which would force any regulation that costs over $100 million to come back to Congress for approval. There are several other things. We’re looking at ways to do that, either through oversight, but it’s clearly out of control and I think what the FCC’s done has gotten everyone alarmed that they’re ignoring the courts and the Congress there in the administration.

The CRA is an effective tool that will rein Mr. Obama and his terrible agenda in.

AmeriPAC must make every single Member of Congress aware of this 1996 legislation that will help to block the radical agenda of Mr. Obama.

Will you assist in this faxing today to make sure that Republicans USE this “WEAPON” against the Obama machine?


The Obama Executive Branch Power
must be stifled!


Mr. Obama has threatened to use his “Executive Order” or “Executive Power” to circumvent the United States Congress—in order to surge his socialistic agenda without the authority of the United States Congress.

Please take the time to fax every single Member of Congress to remind them of the POTENT WEAPON they have to combat the Obama agenda.

Please help AmeriPAC to be on the very frontlines of what is happening in the United States Congress. Your FAX and DONATION is extremely appreciated.


This past November, Americans voted for “full disclosure” of what is going on. At AmeriPAC, we want to make sure that our politicians are explaining every single thing that they do.

NO MORE will we stand for a President Obama “end run” that will promote his socialistic agenda.

Thank you, in advance, for your support.

Sincerely,

Alan Gottlieb
Chairman, AmeriPAC
