U.S. Government To Create Internet National IDs, Says AmeriPAC

The Obama Administration is pushing the creation of an Internet identity scheme called the National Strategies for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace. Their plans include developing federal online identity for every American. Officials claim a national ID will reduce Internet fraud, theft, and make the Internet safer.

 

Howard Schmidt, the White House Cybersecurity Coordinator admitted, “It’s the absolute perfect spot in the U.S. government” to centralize efforts toward creating an “identity ecosystem.”

 

The federally issued Internet ID (the government is calling it a Trusted Internet Identity) will effect everything you do online. If you want to…

 

  • Sell something on eBay
  • Check your email
  • Book an airline ticket
  • Login to your bank
  • Create a website
  • Start an online trading account
  • Surf the Internet

 

…You will need a “Trusted Internet Identity!” In January, a White House official said, “President Obama is planning to hand the U.S. Commerce Department authority over a forthcoming cybersecurity effort to create an Internet ID for Americans.”

 

Commerce Secretary, Gary Locke has denied that the “Trusted Internet Identity” is any form of an Internet ID. Well, if you need identification from the government to conduct your online business that certainly sounds like an Internet ID. What’s next, an ID to buy a loaf of bread?  This is an adapted letter from AmeriPAC
