    Obama Administration Reportedly Plans to Create Internet ID for All Americans

    Jan. 7: President Obama talks about the latest reports showing a decline in the unemployment rate as he highlights his economic policies in a speech on the factory floor of the Thompson Creek Window Company in Landover, Md.
    President Obama is putting plans in motion to give the Commerce Department authority to create an Internet ID for all Americans, a White House official told CNET.com.

    White House Cybersecurity Coordinator Howard Schmidt told the website it is "the absolute perfect spot in the U.S. government" to centralize efforts toward creating an "identity ecosystem" for the Internet.
    The National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace is currently being drafted by the Obama administration and will be released by the president in a few months.

    "We are not talking about a national ID card. We are not talking about a government-controlled system. What we are talking about is enhancing online security and privacy, and reducing and perhaps even eliminating the need to memorize a dozen passwords, through creation and use of more trusted digital identities," Commerce Secretary Gary Locke said at an event Friday at the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research, according to CNET.com.

    Locke added that the Commerce Department will be setting up a national program office to work on this project.

    The move has raised eyebrows about privacy issues.

    "The government cannot create that identity infrastructure," Jim Dempsey of the Center for Democracy and Technology told the website. "If I tried to, I wouldn't be trusted."

    Schmidt stresses that anonymity will remain on the Internet, saying there's no chance that "a centralized database will emerge."

    the whole statement is an oxymoron...how can there be internet identity and anonymity at the same time?

    It's just a front for supporting their special interest group backers, such as the RIAA and the MPAA, who want to take away anonymity so that they can cut down on "pirating".

    Plus, Obama is a socialist cocksucker and this moves his agenda forward.

    It's funny how the more gradually this kind of stuff is applied to us, the less sensitive we are to it. In a way, even your SS# is somewhat of an invasion of privacy. But this will never go thru. Only way it could would be if Barry forces it thru by executive order, or another administrative means, in his last month or so as a lame duck.

    this is not a new topic only to those unfamiliar with the Internet and the drastic increase in Internet commerce and Internet ID theft since the early 2000's. the Swiss launched their program earlier this year as are many other countries. due to a NDA this is about all I can say on this subject.
    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.

    Great another ID some loser can steal from me and make my life miserable....
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    The only reason the unemployment % is down is because people gave up on looking for jobs and thats the fact,its not getting better.As for the ID thing it wont ever happen.

    Bullsh*t.

    This is the same old B.S.

    "This will give you more security. It'll help you."

    Bullsh*t.
    It's an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increasing the debt We've stopped spending money that we don't have.

    -- Jack Lew, then director of the Office of Management and Budget, in Feb. 16, 2011 testimony before the Senate Budget Committee.
