From America's (barf!) Anchorman!:
A lot of people are asking me, Rush, what is this biometric card that the
president was talking about? A key part of the system would be a new ID card for
every legal foreign worker. All right, now, this is interesting. One of the
cards under consideration is a card called IronGate. It's by a company, Digital
Defense, and you can go to their website and see it; mydigitaldefense.com
is their Website, and the IronGate biocard basically works because it has your
fingerprint deeply embedded in the card, and it can't be duplicated; it cannot
be counterfeited. What happens is, according to the website, an IronGate biocard
user registers their biocard and self-enrolls their fingerprints by placing a
finger or thumb on the biocard scan engine. This generates a unique digital
certificate directly onto the biocard.
Once an IronGate
biocard user is registered and enrolled, only then can the industry's first
on-card authentication process take place through the wireless transmission of a
multi-frequency band sending only the digital certificate. A user's biometric
data never leaves the IronGate biocard. The stored biometric information can't
be breached, cannot be duplicated if the card is lost or stolen, provides
maximum security. This is just one of the cards that I think is being considered
for this. Now, stop and think, though, for a minute. Every legal foreign worker
will be given one of these cards. Theoretically if you don't have one of these
cards, you don't get a job; you don't get a paycheck; you don't get a welfare
check. You don't get any of this. How long is it going to take to get one of
these cards if this actually happens, and I don't know if this is in the
"compromise bill" in the Senate. How long is this going to take to register and
find every legal foreign worker, get them one of these cards, thereby
establishing who's illegal? It may be possible, but the people that believe in
this say there's no way that you can counterfeit this, there is no way that you
can transfer this to somebody else. It is one of the latest cutting edge
technological advances. I'm just responding to some of the e-mail. I've been
reading it last night, because I've been fascinated by people's reaction to the
speech. This issue is crucial to the future of the country. When you read the
reports, and we put them on the website, we linked to them last night, the Jeff Sessions analysis and the
Heritage Foundation analysis, anywhere from 193 to 217 million new legal
immigrants in the next 20 years. We were never intended to assimilate that many
people. That's two-thirds of the population of the country as it exists today.
The Heritage Foundation report that was released by Robert Rector, who is one of
the nation's leading authorities on poverty and welfare, by the way, and I've
quoted him countless times during the history of this program.
Well, lets see. We give one of these cards to every single legal alien that comes into this country so we can track where they go and make sure they are legal. Sounds great, right?
I have, up until recently, never been one of those believers that secret cabals are rubbing thier hands plotting our enslavement. I have not put too much stock in those. But now THIS comes up. Think this is good idea? Then let's take that fun ride down that slippery slope together, eh?
The ONLY way something like this would work is that if EVERYBODY.....not just immigrants, had card like this. Illegals could just get fake copies of drivers licences or state ID cards. Sop the only way this would work is if we ALL had that biometric card.
A card that would track you wherever you go. Every move. Every job. Every paycheck.
Missing an alimony payment? Check the database. Reporting taxes? Check the database to see if you are fudging. It can track where you live because you will need it. In fact, they can set it up where if you are illgeal....or anyone else does not does not conform to the social norms...cannot buy any goods, use any services, go on a train, plane, bus or ship, without that new biometric card. We have to protect ouselves against illegal Mexicans (and that IS what we are talking about, not illegals from other countries) and AL-Quida cell members (who have probably all taken thier oaths and a fill fledged citizens already anyway), right??
Now where did I hear this idea before.......
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive F21 a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.
I'm not saying that's where we are headed, but it would not take much. Would it be a good idea....don't know. But you got to hand it to President Curious George: he does know how to slip this under the radar.
The undocumented tomato picker as a trojan horse. Whadd'l they think of next?
Whatever the answer is, I'm afraid of it!
