DHS Wants to Tag Us Before They Bag Us: The Enhanced Drivers License

On Steve Quayle’s “Q Alert” page, he recently posted the following warning from an Arizona resident:

Q Alert


Hi Steve,
I live in Az and just went to get my drivers license renewed. They handed me a paper with my photo on it and said my new license would be mailed in about 2 weeks. It says it is an ENHANCED DRIVERS LICENSE or EDL. A cursory internet search reveals at least 6 other states are implementing it and that it has a microchip in it that can be read up to 30 feet away. Contains your fingerprint and biometric data and is linked to multiple databases. In other words it is a REAL ID just under a diffrrent name! The American people wholeheartedly rejected the REAL ID yet they are going forwad with it anyway by giving it a different name. Please get the warning out.

Official Existence of the EDL Program

I have searched the local media archives in Arizona and cannot confirm the authenticity of this report. However, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has validated the existence of  this program with an admission that the Enhanced Drivers License is indeed a reality in a July, 28, 2014 report. Additionally, an extensive search revealed that Arizona Revised Statutes section 28-3153(D) provides information and the rationale for the existence of the EDL.

I live in Arizona and there was no media coverage of this whatsoever.  It is as if someone just placed this law into Arizona’s Revised Statutes. This was totally done by stealth and history shows that this is a very bad development!

In effect, this, virtually unpublicized national and soon-to-be global ID card will serve as a permission slip to do all of the ordinary things that you presently have the right to do as an ordinary American citizen. Of course, if you are one of the governmental traitors who have perpetrated this fraud upon the people of the United States, and your intention is to eliminate U.S. sovereignty by requiring American citizens to become a part of a global identification system, then this is a requisite step in this treasonous give away of our country.

The Immigration Trojan Horse

The National ID and soon to be Global ID system is being sold to the rank and file of Congress as a means to control terrorism and to further prevent illegal immigration. Showing ID’s to board a plane on 9/11 did not prevent the destruction of the Twin T
owers now did it? And we have drones and satellites which can read the inscription on a dime from the upper reaches of the atmosphere and we can’t identify and stop foreign nationals from crossing our borders? Our government does want to stop illegal immigration. And now we are being asked to swallow the myth that only an ID can prevent illegal immigration. Only a member of Congress who is more focused on becoming enriched at their insider-trading potential would be distracted enough to fall for this ridiculous excuse. And when one considers that a bi-partisan group of congressman are trying to simultaneously create a path to citizenship for all illegal alien residents, this justification of requiring a Global ID to solve the immigration issues of this country is based wholly on deception.

History Speaks and America Should Listen

Regardless of the facade set forth to justify this unconstitutional policy, Global ID cards are a very bad idea. It is not a bad idea because I say so, it is a bad idea because history says so and does so in an emphatic manner.

If the average citizen is not concerned with the soon-to-be required national ID card, then they should carefully reconsider their position. Global ID cards have played a draconian role in the history of human persecutions and genocides within the 20th century. History clearly teaches that the prevalence of national ID cards should concern all persons who wish to prevent a future national genocide similar to what happened in Rwanda and in Nazi Germany from occurring in America.

The J Stamp

In Nazi Germany (July 1938), only a few months before Kristallnacht (i.e., the night of the broken glass) in which Jewish businesses were targeted by the infamous “Brown Shirts” for destruction, the notorious “J-stamp” was introduced on national ID cards and then later on passports. The use of the “J-stamp” ID cards by Nazi Germany preceded the yellow Star of David badges which led to the subsequent deportation of Gypsies, Jews, homosexuals and political dissidents to the infamous Nazi death camps. In Norway, where yellow cloth badges were not introduced, the J stamped ID card was used in the identification of more than 800 Jews deported to death camps in Eastern Europe.

Ninety Days of Death

Identification cards, in Rwanda, were the key factor in shaping, defining and perpetuating ethnic identity which ultimately led to subsequent ethnic cleansing. Once the 1994 genocide in Rwanda began, an ID card with the designation “Tutsi” constituted a death sentence at any checkpoint. No other factor was more significant in facilitating the speed and carnage of the 100 days of mass killing of an estimated one million people in Rwanda.

The Media Propaganda Has Begun

The Washington Post has previously endorsed a national ID card based on the argument that a tamper-proof, biometric ID in which the state that there is a clear case for a national ID card in which they support President Obama’s desire for an immigration card which will be issued to all American citizens.

The Wall Street Journal is participating in this media blitz in which they call for an immigration bill that would force every American worker to possess a biometric ID card in order to work.

Since Ron Paul has left Congress, a formidable obstacle to the imposition of this police state measure has been removed. The imposition of a national/global ID system is part of a larger plot to relegate our American citizenship to a greatly diminished global status.

Americans Will Be Part of a Global System

The government of Indonesia has created a multi-modal biometrics identification system that they refer to as a national Electronic ID Card (e-KTP). Indonesia has been successful in enrolling 103 million of its 172 million citizens into their version of the J-Stamp card.

The government of India is on the path towards issuing biometric identity cards to its 1.2 billion people. Indians are assigned a 12-digit ID card containing microchips of individual Identity cards through what they are calling  “The National Population Register” (NPR). The NPR program is mandatory and will soon be a prerequisite to work and buy food.

Even President Obama’s native country of Kenya has a national ID card, in accordance to the Registration of Persons Act, in which all Kenyan citizens who are 18 years or older need to appear before a registrar of the court to obtain the ID, which consists of taking a photograph and submitting their fingerprints to a national registry.

In fact, over 100 countries presently require compulsory identity cards and they are all about to be merged.

 America Cannot Permit Obama To Possess This Authority

History has clearly demonstrated that there can be no question that the National/Global ID Card is a clear and present danger to every American who would be foolish enough to possess one. Obama is already on record of declaring his power to assassinate American citizens. He has used drones to this end and these drones contain facial recognition systems which could hunt down and kill his political enemies as he has done with three U.S. citizens that we know of.

And before coincidence theorists, who deny the validity of any conspiracy theory, state that no president would ever be capable of doing that to the American people, one should ask why would Obama has insisted on an unrestrained and unconstitutional detention authority over American citizens under the NDAA.


My advice is to all Americans is to immediately work towards becoming self-sufficient to such a degree that it appears to others that your life depends on it, because it does. I have spoken with a couple of Arizona governmental employees who have knowledge of this program and they both said that this ID program is a first step to tie gun ownership into your EDL.  This is the first step towards gun confiscation and this sets  a very bad historical precedent which will be the subject of a future article which will examine the link between a national/global ID card and gun confiscation

    Dave I just renewed my license here in NC and they took my picture then told me my drivers license would arrive in 2 weeks. I asked why they stopped printing them in the office and was told me it had to do with 9-11. I said wait a second I had them last renewed in 2009 and there was no waiting. Basically they had no answer, the people of NC have no idea that our state government has sold us out. There has been not a peep from the state media, this was done behind closed doors at the behest of the feds. I am livid that our local leaders have bought into the NWO. Americans better begin to think local, if they don’t take by their local and state government back they will never change the federal government.

    Thanks for all you do for freedom.

    How will this tie into the CHL (concealed carry) license data base? What should we do if we are already in that one?

  4. Pete September 8, 2014 at 7:26 am

    Hawaii took my finger and thumb prints (scan), as well as “look into my camera” a second camera (not the driver’s photo) that was most likely a retina scan as the other photo certainly is enough to accommodate the facial recognition scan. Don’t like it, then you can’t drive. These people never sleep.

    THANK YOU for posting this vital information. “Accidentally” microwaving the ID for 10 seconds and running neodymium (rare earth) magnets over the strip and placing stickers on the barcode should suffice to protect what little privacy we MAY have left.

    I received a paper requesting documentation from “obamacare”.

    It states to send copy of passport, birth certificate,
    Or STATE-issued enhanced Drivers license available in:
    Michigan, New York, Vermont, and Washington…..

    There is no date on the paper. It was sent in the last month.

  12. BJ September 8, 2014 at 9:26 am

    AZ DOES have the Enhanced Driver’s License. Go down and tell them you want a new license and they’ll give you a piece of paper with copy of your photo and info and tell you you will receive your new license in the mail in about 2 weeks. That gives them time to process all your info onto the RFID chip. My grandson just got one and I’ve seen many others in my work. Brewer seems to have caved to the system.

  13. btruth September 8, 2014 at 9:39 am

    Just place it a microwave for 5 sec, poke a hole in the center of the chip, run a strong magnet over it, etc. The chances are that most dont have the conviction to opt out of most all the nwo garbage, ie taxes/extorsion fees, so they really have no right to complain. Lord Jesus Christ, please come quickly!

  14. Doolittle September 8, 2014 at 10:01 am

    Hi Dave,
    I’ve recently applied for a concealed handgun permit and now I’m wondering if it was worth doing. The county I live in requires all previous addresses since age 18, current address, and if I move – I must notify them within 45 days so they can update my file in their CHL computer. It also required photos, fingerprints, and a full background check. Now after all this I’m wondering if it was really worth it or if I’ve just put myself on the “first wave” hit list. What do you think? Anyone else?

  15. Seen2013 September 8, 2014 at 10:14 am

    “This is the first step towards gun confiscation and this sets a very bad historical precedent which will be the subject of a future article which will examine the link between a national/global ID card and gun confiscation”

    I’d think that it’d be obvious:
    Hooks into GPS
    Hooks into your dossier (Dossier is a personal file of your activities, purchases, and known associates as well as marks against the regime) both the Nazi SS and Soviet NKYD (I’d have to double check the abbreviation) utilized dossiers of each individual within Germany and the Soviet Union.

    In other words, it grants easy access for harassment and liquidation as the Authoritarian enforcers know without a doubt who to simply raze (sets your home on fire killing any who remains or steps out).

    This is exactly why electronic RFID National ID cards were frowned upon by those of us that choose to save liberty and freedom. I have for some time told people that it doesn’t matter if it is local, state, Federal our governments are doing one thing, trying to number us, control us, all to the end game of the powers behind the throne, that end game is to kill us. having an electronic ID card, that WILL contain what ever data that the powers that be want is insane. SHEEPLE you better wake up….. This is intrusion leading you to the fema camps, death camps, what ever they want to do to you. GET YOUR HEARTS right with JESUS CHRIST, now before it is too late

  19. Vinny September 8, 2014 at 11:47 am

    I read an article 2-3 years ago about the drivers license that we have now, with the strip on the back that can be scanned like a credit card. I don’t know if it’s true, but one commenter on the article stated that “about 6 seconds in the microwave would pop that chip.” Maybe something to try.

  20. NW Native September 8, 2014 at 11:52 am

    In 2003 Ted Nace published “Gangs Of America, The rise of Corporate Power And The Disabling Of Democracy”
    This tour de force gives the history of corporatism and the current control these corporate “gangs” have over the lives of the American people.

    Criminal corporate gangs are not the only criminal gangs raping and plundering the average American family.

    1. There are the well know criminal street gangs that deal in rackets of every variety.
    2. Then there is the Criminal gang called the US Congress that are real experts in raping and plundering American families and individuals.
    3. Working hand and glove with the Congressional gang is the criminal bureaucratic alphabet agency gangs of the executive, led by the president and his handlers.
    4. Then there are the State and local government criminal gangs that, for the most part, bend over and do the bidding of the federal gangs.
    5. One of leading causes of death is the medical AMA gang that licks the rear of the criminal big pharma gangs.
    6. There are the international criminal gangs of every strip.
    7. However, riding herd and controlling all these criminal gangs, and many not mentioned, is the master criminal gang in all human history, the international criminal banking gang-cabal.

    This psychopathic international banking crime syndicate is a parasite that feeds off the labors of the people. Control of the money is the means of control.

    In order for this banking parasite to maintain control over the host, the normal working people of the world before they wake up to what the all the “Gangs of America” and the world are doing to them, the biometric ID ENHANCED DRIVERS LICENSE or EDL will be shoved down our throats by the banksters minions at the state level, aided and abetted by the criminal gangs in Washington D.C.

    The right to travel by any means is a constitutional right.
    A “drivers’ License is only required if you are paid to drive someone or something. The drivers license was originally to make sure that every one on the road could drive safely and knew the rules and laws for safe driving.
    Now the drivers license will be used for biometric control over the population so that the parasites can safely maintain their sucker hold on the body politic.

  21. California Driver License Renewal September 8, 2014 at 11:53 am

    Just renewed my California driver license for 5 years and it was entirely by mail and came back “enhanced” with microchip, magnetic strip and other things encoded in bumps and secret markings all over it, front and back both. So that plus bridge tolls in California require a transponder in the car to register if you don’t want to have to stop at the toll both and use the special FasTrak lanes, looks like Californians will soon be under surveillance completely. California, leading the way into the progressive future, as it has since at least the last 100 years. It’s why the UN Treaty was originally signed out here, it’s a UN colony inside the US and has been actively involved in destroying the US Constitution since the early 1900’s at least. US Constitutionalists should attack California and drive out all the communists back to overseas, where they belong, physically, if they wish to liberate the rest of the country from their corruption of the US.

  22. Marty September 8, 2014 at 1:19 pm

    A recent example is, the National Identity card of South Africa, where one was described as white, black or coloured. Accordingly you were treated by your identity and denied certain privileges ( where you could live, education, employment, etc.).

    Minnesota you can pay an additional fee for an enhanced id, this just started this summer as well. They sold it as an easier way to cross the Canadian border, since your information will be stored on the chip, can only imagine once this is linked to medical records they can track all vaccinations and communicable diseases. I live in a town of roughly 9000 and we are getting 61 mesh radio enhanced cameras to fight the ‘violent crime’ and our county just showed off it’s new MRAP unit as well. Northern Minnesota changing as fast as rest of the nation. Been a reader/listener for over a year now, thank you Dave for all your work, spot on and I’ve noticed some of the other ‘alternative news sites’ have been following your lead with many of your revelations, great work!

  30. Annie September 8, 2014 at 7:51 pm

    Missouri also requires iris scans and fingerprints. They mail our drivers licenses now and they say they will arrive in 2 weeks.

  31. azinfowarrior September 8, 2014 at 8:18 pm

    that REAL ID was part of SB1070. campaign for liberty was warning about it at the top of their lungs but all the stupid “conservatives” gaffed it off. so easily duped. idiots. I told many people this bit of course I was the “nut” at the time. this country gets what it deserves.

  32. CGDoc September 8, 2014 at 9:54 pm

    Dave, As you know Arizona Drivers Licenses when they are issued don’t expire until your 65 years old. Well we just got a letter telling us that we needed to refresh our drivers license because our pictures are more than 10 years old. So they are going to get around to make sure everyone gets one sooner than later. 666?

  33. john September 9, 2014 at 1:38 am

    shall we assume that the enhanced driver licenses will result in all the criminal invaders being immediately removed from America?

  34. csaaphill September 9, 2014 at 3:51 am

    This is probably 666 written all over it sorry but it probably is.
    better hope to die before this comes or bug out soon.
    If you take this this is probaly the last step that needs done before Jesus Christs comes back.
    See no rapture your here for the ride now!
    Hopefully I am wrong and this is just something that looks like it but not. Not a death decree actually unless one who doesn’t take it might or should die because they wont be able to buy or sell. so could be a subtle death decree!
    Once implemented then all hell breaks lose after that.
    The microwave trick though wonder how that would work?
    Will it melt or disfigure the card? Will the beast then make you get a new one?
    Don’t know this is scary as hell for anyone who takes the bible seriously this should be the wake up call now!

    I have seen youtube videos of microwaving the rfids in cards. It basically destroys the card by melting and burning the rfid and surrounding plastic.
    As stated it can be read 30 feet away. So hypothetically, when you are pulled over during a trafic stop and the officer cannot pre-scan your drivers license, they will probably fine/ arrest you for no valid drivers license. That one is easy to see coming. Not to mention all the other places and situations you will need to use it for a valid ID.

    Georgia already has REAL ID. You can’t get a license without taking your birth certificate, wedding license, an utility bill, bank statement, or 2 other forms of identity to prove your address. In addition they scan it all in and keep it in some database so every worker in the State can access it. Talking about identity theft. When you go to vote, not only must you produce your DL, you have to let them scan it or you can’t vote. Where in the law does that come into play. It is a crock!

  44. Leathersammie September 9, 2014 at 8:01 pm
