  1. Just for fun - or - to provoke conversation - or - to express one's views. Back on March 28 (Thread: what to show coming into CR - post #14) I relayed a RUMOR I came across on a Panama Blog - "Homeland Security to require passports for domestic air travel". Since then a friend in the U.S. sent me a link to an article on Safehaven.com of which I have listed the highlights of below. TSA Demands Internal Passport for Domestic Travel By: Wendy McElroy l Tuesday, February 10, 2015 "Precedents exist for requiring citizens to produce special ID for domestic travel; they include Nazi Germany, apartheid South Africa and Russia (both Imperial and Soviet)." "Over the Christmas season the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) quietly announced that America was walking down that path. By 2016, all domestic air travel will require either a traditional passport or a federally-compliant ID card called "Real ID". State driver's licenses will no longer---access to domestic flights" "Under the Real ID act of 2005, state driver's licenses and other ID needed to conform to federal standards. The IDs were to be used for "official purposes" as were defined by the Department of Homeland Security." "Then, the data must be linked to every other state's motor vehicle databases. The networking would permit an easy data-merge with federal databases such as the FBI's Next Generation Identification system" "Some states - for example, Idaho, Hawaii, New Hampshire, and Maine - flatly refused to comply." "But the main hope of delaying Real ID is a confrontation between the federal and state governments. In 2012, the governor of Montana declared, "Montana will not agree to share it's citizens' personal and private information through a national database, nor bear the exorbitant cost of building such a database. Furthermore, the Act tramples on our state's right to determine our own licensing procedures and protocols, and would interfere with our state's work to improve drivers' license security. Montana is in no mood at all for another heavy-handed play by the federal government, such as what transpired in 2008 when the homeland security director threatened to prevent Montanans from boarding an airplane unless we complied with the REAL ID act. We refused, and will refuse again." "FATCA and related global measures gave the feds access to every cent that any American possessed in the world. Now REAL ID wants to ensure that no American can avoid federal detection within domestic borders." Full article can be seen at www.safehaven.com
