REAL ID Rules Apply Starting January 2018. What you need to know. Are you ready?

REAL ID, enacted by the 109th Congress in 2005 is set to become effective starting January 22, 2018 and will have an effect air travelers.

The REAL ID Act of 2005 sets new requirements and standards for state driver’s licenses and ID cards that will be acceptable in order to board an airplane within the United States, as well as access to nuclear power plants and other federal buildings.  The airline requirement is Phase 4 of the program.  As of this writing, 26 states and territories have already complied with the new requirements, 25 others have filed for an extension, but 5 others have not meet the requirements (Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana and Washington).  To find out if your state is compliant, you can check here.

REAL ID sets up certain standards as to verifying your identity before your ID has been issued, irregardless of whether you currently have a driver’s license or not.  (sound like Extreme Vetting?  So this a requirement for US citizens, but not for refugees or immigrants?…but that’s another topic)  I know in my State of Georgia, they began requiring new documents a few years ago before renewing your current ID or driver’s license.   Each applicant must provide the following: 1) a photo ID or non-photo ID that includes full legal name and birth date. 2) Documentation of birth date. 3) Documentation  of legal status and Social Security number. 4) Documentation showing name and principal residence address.  All of this  documentation will be stored in each DMV database.

Each ID is also required to meet specific security features to prevent duplication, tampering, counterfeiting as well as having data in a machine readable format. (magnetic strip, bar code, QR codes etc). RFID chips, like we now in many of our credit and debit cards, are not required at this point, but it was discussed and may be added at a later date.

The Act also set up the ability to link each states database to be shared both domestically and internationally.  Some have called this a “National Database”, but proponents of the bill claim this as false.  This is not the beginning a national ID system as each state will still be designing and issuing their own ID’s and maintain their own database, claims DHS, but several groups have disputed this claim.

What does this mean for you?

To make this simple, “passengers with a driver’s license issued by a state that is still not compliant with the REAL ID Act (and has not been granted an extension) will need to show an alternative form of acceptable identification for domestic air travel to board their flight”  That is until October 1, 2020 when a REAL ID compliant license or ID will be required.  Children under the age of 18 and when accompanied by an adult, will not be required to meet the requirements at this time.  As for when they are not with an adult is information I could not locate at this time.  Please check with your individual airline, but even though it’s not stated, I’m sure it wouldn’t be required.

This does not mean that you as the passenger has to have a REAL ID license by January 22, but that your state must be in compliance per DHS standards, which essentially means they are in timely progress of implementing the REAL ID program in their respective states.

You should really look up your state’s progress before flying starting next year.  Don’t wait until you get to the airport and realize that you will not be able to board.  There will be probably millions of examples, myself included where your current ID or license may not expire until after January 22, 2017, or even after October 1, 2020. If you fall into this group, you will be required to get a new ID before the October 1, 2020 deadline.

I encourage everyone to read more about this here.

Some things you may not know about the Flu Vaccine.

I just wanted to throw out some information about our current flu vaccines, and the harmful ingredients they include.


As you can clearly see in the following chart, direct from the Center For Disease Control and Prevention’s  (CDC) own website, the number of doses distributed each year as increased every year since 1980 except for just a few years.  (11 times to be exact). According to the US Population in 1980 was 226,542,199, and 12.4 million doses were distributed that year.  So that’s about 5.4% of the population.  By 2016, the estimated population was 322,762,018 and 146.4 million doses were distributed, 45.3% of the total population.  Over the last 36 years, we’ve gone from 5.4% to 45.3%, which is a huge increase.  That would be a huge return on investment.    Imagine if your income increased that much, or your stocks increase that much in price.  Of course this doesn’t mean that many people received the vaccine, but these drug companies aren’t stupid, they won’t produce and distribute that many, if they didn’t think they would just go to waste.

Does anyone think that the flu has become more common over the last 36 years?  I have never had the flu ever in my 49 years of life, and I’ve never gotten a flu shot….ever.


The huge drop you probably noticed in 2004-2005 was due to license suspension in October 2004 of Chiron Corporation by the United Kingdom’s Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency.  At the time, Chiron was anticipated to supply almost half of the estimated 100 million doses required in the U.S. for the 2004–2005 influenza season.


I highly recommend anyone who intends on getting the flu shot to look at, and read the insert for the ingredients contained in that particular vaccine.  Or any vaccine for that matter, not just the flu vaccine.  The doctor, or medical professional administering the shot should comply with your request.  If not, leave immediately.  Here is a list of several harmful ingredients in the flu shot courtesy of Mike Adams and via


Big Money, Big Pharma:

Vaccines, including the flu vaccine is big business to the pharmaceutical companies.  The top 5 players in the game are Pfizer, Sanofi Aventis, Novartis AG, Merck Company, and GlaxoSmithKline.  By 2018, the estimated revenue is expected to hit $41.85 billion.  From a CNBC on October 19, 2015, the flu vaccine created $1.61 billion in revenue, according to industry researcher IMS Health. Globally, manufacturer CSL estimates the market for influenza vaccines at $4 billion.

As far are your family doctor is concerned, how does he/she make?  Well, this is from Catherine J. Frompovich (A retired natural nutritionist with advanced degrees in Nutrition and Holistic Health Sciences) in 2013:

Guess how much the vaccine administration fee is? According to Dr. Lander, it should range from $14 to $30.

Dr. Lander uses a hypothetical patient base of 2,000 and explains who may or may not receive the flu vaccine. He contends bottom line and revenue results are $14,000 to $30,000 from only 1,000 patients receiving the flu shot. However, Dr. Lander throws in a financial wild card regarding 100 patients, who called to get a flu shot and then end up scheduling a well visit. According to Lander, a doctor “should be generating an additional $10,000. Bottom line: $25,000 to $42,500, which is not bad!”

$25,000-$42,500 each year…that’s their new car, new boat or their luxory vacation thanks to you.

I cannot stress this enough, but don’t ever get the flu shot.  It will make you sick, potentially give you cancer (which of course you won’t find out until later), lead to Alzheimer’s and/or demensia as well as several other things.  Don’t continue to feed big  pharma your hard earned dollars.

U.S. Economy to come to a halt March 15, 2017 Due to Debt Ceiling Limit.

From Mac Slavo of

Though many financial pundits make the argument that the U.S. economy is booming as a result of millions of new jobs, a healthy housing market and record stock market levels, former Reagan budget director David Stockman  says that the next few months will see fiscal, financial and economic upheaval.

In a recent interview with Greg Hunter’s USA Watchdog, Stockman argues that President Trump’s stimulus packages will be ground to a halt as the U.S. debt ceiling is once again breached in March. The resulting uncertainty could lead to widespread panic on Wall Street.

The trigger, says Stockman, will be a debt ceiling crisis on or around March 15, 2017, which incidentally, just happens to be the same day that the Federal Reserve is supposed to hike interest rates:

In a typical month we have 250 to 300 billion in revenue coming in… that will easily cover the debt service for a month… that will readily cover social security and other critical payments… but when it comes to paying grants to state and local governments, contractors, or the Army Corp of Engineers, or the Pentagon, or a whole range of other activities, if you don’t have the cash you put the bills in the drawer…

I think that is what’s going to shock the system… and it will scare the living bejeezus out of Wall Street and financial markets because then you won’t have a sudden clarification or resolution to the problem.. and that could go on for days and weeks.

This is going to be a maelstrom like we’ve never seen before and the markets are not even remotely prepared for this… Fundamentals don’t matter anymore… nothing is being discounted… it’s all raging robo-machines and day traders thinking that somebody is going to come to their rescue no matter how  absurd the bubble gets or how extended the whole system becomes.

The fall out will be fast and unprecedented in its scale:

There is going to be a recession… and there is going to be no stimulus left to bail it out… and neither Trump or the Wall Street gamblers even remotely understand.

I see [President Trump] as the great disruptor… I don’t see him as someone who is going to bring about a solution… We have to have the system blow up first for all practical purposes… I think he does not yet understand the magnitude of the problem… the incorrigibility of what he’s inherited.

…He doesn’t realize that this problem he is inheriting is a thousand times greater than anything he ever imagined… this is a monster.

Everything leaks and we’re learning in the Trump administration they’re as leak-prone as any I have seen… so it’s all going to leak out… and the stock market…the casino… is going to begin to realize the fact that there is no plan…there is no big fiscal stimulus… the whole system is heading into some kind of crash landing and that’s going to change the manic delusions that are underway today.

But Stockman says that some assets will survive the coming crash, which could see well in excess of 20% drops in stock market prices. Physical assets like gold and silver, including precious metals resource companies, may see prices go to new highs when investors shift to safe haven assets amid the panic:

There is some semblance of rationality left on the edges and corners of financial markets… some people realize that the central banks are out of dry powder… that era of massive money printing is over… In that environment there is going to be a massive reset of financial asset values and the central banks are going to be totally discredited.

There will be a dash for the only solid monetary asset left in the world, which is gold… The gold market is tiny compared to the size of the financial system… It only will take a small shift into the asset of last resort to make the price of gold really start to soar.

The best thing to do is be patient and be long gold… it will pay off handsomely when the crisis really intensifies and hits ground zero.

Georgia and Southeast Running Out of Gas Following a Pipeline Spill in Alabama

After a pipeline began leaking in Alabama last week, the supply of gas to most of the Southeast United States, including Georgia is running out of gas, and unsure of when the next shipment is coming.

I just returned from a 2 hour trip to local gas stations within a few miles of me, and of the 8 places I checked, 4 places are already out of gas, 2 places only had regular unleaded, and the other 2 still had gas with increased prices.  The standard rate for regular unleaded at all 4 places was $2.39 per gallon, compared to $2.22 that I paid yesterday, that’s and increase of $.17 in the last 24 hours.  Yesterday on the local news, they said not to worry about, it’s not a big deal, and now today this is happening.  Even one of Georgia’s largest and most popular stations, QT is out of gas.


It has also been reported to me that gas is hard to find in Nashville,

and price gouging in Jasper, GA, of which I have not vetted yet and still waiting confirmation of.

It has also been reported to me from a friend in Asheville, NC that they are limiting purchases to a maximum of $20.

The local Kroger Gas station near me was out of gas at one point today and received a shipment of 10,000 gallons around 5:00 pm today and as of 8:00 pm, they had 5,000 gallons left.  Based on traffic, they expect to be sold out by the time they close at 11 pm.  When I asked the attendant as to when they expected another shipment, all I got was a shoulder shrug.

This will be a true test of Georgians and Americans to see how they react to a “catastrophe” that they are not prepared for.  Will violence erupt in the fight for gas?  It surely will.  Road rage at the gas station.  Will schools close?  Probably…no gas to put in the buses…parents have to stay home, even if they had gas to get to work.  Does the police force have enough gas to patrol the streets?  Ambulance and Fire? What happens when none of these cannot operate?  Think about it.  Prepare.  Prepare.  Prepare.

Dakota Access Pipeline: What You’re Not Being Told

When protesters in North Dakota were attacked by pepper spray and attack dogs over Labor Day weekend, many mainstream media outlets reported on it, but afterwards, there has been very little, if any coverage on what is actually going on in Western North Dakota.  I had the opportunity to communicate with Leili Crows Heart over the past several days, and she shared with me some several important pieces of insider information in which I am about to share.

If you are unaware of any of this, lets start with some background.  The Dakota Access Pipeline is an oil pipeline which starts in the Bakken and Three Forks regions of North Dakota and is planned to also run through South Dakota, Iowa and eventually link up with an existing line in Illinois. It will run for approximately 1,172 miles in a 30 inch diameter pipeline that will carry 470,000 to 570,000 barrels of oil per day.  The project is an estimated $3.78 billion investment that will create 8,000 – 12,000 jobs during construction.

For more background, you can check their official facts page here:

Click to access DAPL_FactSheet33-8_09_16.pdf

Over Labor Day weekend, Democracy Now put out a video showing contracted security teams pepper spraying and using attack dogs on  protesters attempting to stop construction on the pipeline near the Standing Rock Sioux’s historical ancestry burial grounds.  The video was highly edited it seemed, and didn’t really show the entire truth, but it did still an outrage on social media.  Some reports indicated the the protesters trespassed on land owned by the Army Corps of Engineers, and this is why the security team was used and arrests were made.  Even Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman was issued an arrest warrant for covering the story.

Leili Crows Heart is a member of The Affiliated Tribes, which consists of the Mandans, Hidatsa and Arikara, located on the Ft. Berthold Reservation which is divided into 5 segments due to construction back in 1953 of the Garrison Dam.  When this dam was built, it divided the tribes and physically separated them from each other.  With this new activity at Standing Rock, the tribes are coming back together.  Leili was able to tell me that there are currently 260 tribes at Standing Rock at the camp.  During, and right after the attack dog incident, Leili and others started to notice that several of their Facebook posts were being deleted after they were shared.  They were trying to reach out to anyone who would listen, but perhaps Facebook didn’t want anyone to hear.  Upon my first look at her Facebook page, I was shocked at how little information that was actually there, and she told me she used to have a lot more, and she had to keep re-posting the same thing several times as it kept being deleted.  Keep in mind, that cell phone coverage is very poor, or unavailable in this remote part of North Dakota, which makes it difficult for anyone to get news out in a timely manner.

I asked her about local news coverage, and she replied as, “We watch the news waiting to see if there is any actual truth getting out.  But no. Just the sheriff telling outright lies.  Everyone believes him because ND is a racist as f..k state!”  As far as any national news scene, she informed me that she has only witnessed Democracy Now and Nat Geo.  She along with others have been trying to get this news out there, but no one seems to be listening. “Standing Rock needs to be on the national news.  They need to be heard and seen that they are peaceful PROTECTORS of the land.  They pray and sing in prayer all day everyday.  Elders and children alike.”

The area that was being worked on the day of the incident, wasn’t even supposed to happening.  It has been reported that this particular area was on Army Corps of Engineers land, when in fact it was on private property.  It was part of the scheduled route, but previously they had been working about 1 1/2 miles away.  On this day, they moved the bulldozers to this area and upon hearing the noise of the machines, people started to ascend onto the area to get them to stop.  Wouldn’t you be upset to discover this going on if you were in their place?

Why did they pick this area to bulldoze that day?  Here is where it get interesting.  The landowner noticed some previously unknown rock cairns (a pile of rocks set up as a landmark) and had notified the tribe.  Upon the tribe investigating the area, they notified the state, who decided to halt the digging until more information could be gathered and get surveying done to discover the expanse of the burial site area.  It was the very next day that they moved the bulldozers and starting working in the area, again moving their equipment 1 and a half miles from their last work area.  This is the reason for the controversy.  According to Leili, they bulldozed right away in order to hide and destroy their ancestors and sacred burial sites.  The protesters were only trying to protect these sites and artifacts and were not out there to incite a riot.  They didn’t fight, just defended.

“We’re worried about the planet.  DAPL is worried about making money no matter what it destroys.  That’s what the government/corporation is doing.  They are going to suck the last breath of life from our mother earth if we don’t stop them.  We’re worried about the planet!” Leila told me.

As far as the people being arrested for trespassing, Leila told me that the land owner had granted permission for them to be there, so I expect the charges to be dropped eventually, including the charge for Amy Goodman.

All work has been supposedly been halted, but the tensions have not.

Please share this as they need a voice, and no one is listening.

Here are some other people out in the area who are posting daily, if not more frequently if you would like more information.

Decision Expected by 6 pm today by DNC to Replace Hillary Clinton

This morning Rebekah Worsham Tweeted this out at 7:12 AM.

She has a golden source within to the Clinton campaign and I trust her report from this source.

Keep an eye on this all day.  It seems like the key questions are;

A) Will Hillary actually decide to step away because it’s her call.  They cannot kick her off of the ticket.  She has to resign as the Democratic nominee for President of the United States via Article 2, section (c) of the rules.

B)  Who will they decide to replace her?   Some think it will be Joe Biden, while others think it should be Bernie Sanders.  There has been a lot of talk for the last 18 months or so of Joe Biden getting into the race late and “Saving the Day” for the democrats, so was this the plan all along? Doubtful, but perhaps they always knew they had that ace up their sleeves.

Bernie supporters still feel that he should be the nominee since he had more followers than Hillary, he never actually conceded to Hillary and other reasons here:

Some Bernie supporters have even said if they don’t select him, they will be voting for Donald J. Trump, which may have a huge effect on the final outcome.  I think Bernie supporters will get even more vocal than they have in the past, even more so than during the outside the DNC in Philadelphia back in July.

This should be another interesting day.  I’ve been saying all along that this General Election process was going to be very interesting and nothing like we have ever seen.

Hillary Clinton Has Fainting Spell, Campaign claims its Pneumonia

Hillary Clinton attended the 9/11 Memorial event today in New York, but had to leave early as she was rushed out and helped by several people to get into a van.

Several videos have finally surfaced showing how she clearly had to be aided to move the few feet from the sidewalk into the van.  The one video clearly shows her feet nor working on their own and appear to be dragging.




Hillary’s campaign released the following statement from Dr. Lisa R. Bardack, M.D.:

If she indeed has pneumonia, she should be resting and not going anywhere.  I’m no doctor, but I know that much.  And if she was diagnosed on Friday, why are they just releasing a statement today?  I’m not buying it.

The media has come with every type of explanation for this incident, recapped by this tweet from Mike Cernovich:

So what happens if Hillary is found too ill to continue?  Here is the rules from the DNC Article 2:

So really what that says, in Section 1, part C is that they can replace Hillary with whoever they want?  Is Joe Biden next one in?  Tim Kaine?  Bernie Sanders?  I think the Bernie Sanders supporters would have a fit if it wasn’t him, don’t you agree?

Joint Statement from Departments of Justice, Army and Interior about Dakota Access.

Department of JusticeOffice of Public Affairs


Friday, September 9, 2016

Joint Statement from the Department of Justice, the Department of the Army and the Department of the Interior Regarding Standing Rock Sioux Tribe v. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
The Department of Justice, the Department of the Army and the Department of the Interior issued the following statement regarding Standing Rock Sioux Tribe v. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers:
“We appreciate the District Court’s opinion on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ compliance with the National Historic Preservation Act. However, important issues raised by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and other tribal nations and their members regarding the Dakota Access pipeline specifically, and pipeline-related decision-making generally, remain. Therefore, the Department of the Army, the Department of Justice, and the Department of the Interior will take the following steps.
The Army will not authorize constructing the Dakota Access pipeline on Corps land bordering or under Lake Oahe until it can determine whether it will need to reconsider any of its previous decisions regarding the Lake Oahe site under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) or other federal laws. Therefore, construction of the pipeline on Army Corps land bordering or under Lake Oahe will not go forward at this time. The Army will move expeditiously to make this determination, as everyone involved — including the pipeline company and its workers — deserves a clear and timely resolution. In the interim, we request that the pipeline company voluntarily pause all construction activity within 20 miles east or west of Lake Oahe.
“Furthermore, this case has highlighted the need for a serious discussion on whether there should be nationwide reform with respect to considering tribes’ views on these types of infrastructure projects. Therefore, this fall, we will invite tribes to formal, government-to-government consultations on two questions: (1) within the existing statutory framework, what should the federal government do to better ensure meaningful tribal input into infrastructure-related reviews and decisions and the protection of tribal lands, resources, and treaty rights; and (2) should new legislation be proposed to Congress to alter that statutory framework and promote those goals.
“Finally, we fully support the rights of all Americans to assemble and speak freely. We urge everyone involved in protest or pipeline activities to adhere to the principles of nonviolence. Of course, anyone who commits violent or destructive acts may face criminal sanctions from federal, tribal, state, or local authorities. The Departments of Justice and the Interior will continue to deploy resources to North Dakota to help state, local, and tribal authorities, and the communities they serve, better communicate, defuse tensions, support peaceful protest, and maintain public safety. 
“In recent days, we have seen thousands of demonstrators come together peacefully, with support from scores of sovereign tribal governments, to exercise their First Amendment rights and to voice heartfelt concerns about the environment and historic, sacred sites. It is now incumbent on all of us to develop a path forward that serves the broadest public interest.”

Breaking: Judge denies work stoppage in Dakota Access Pipeline. 

US District Judge James Boasberg has finally ruled today denying the request from the Standing Rock Sioux to halt construction on the Dakota Access Pipeline near Bismark, North Dakota. 

In his statement, the judge said, that the Army Corps of Engineers “has likely complied with the NHPA (National Historic Preservation Act) and that the Tribe has not shown it will suffer injury that would be prevented by any injunction.”

No reports at this point of what will happen now, if you recall from my previous report that the Governor has activated the National Guard to help local law enforcement with traffic, and whatever else they might be needed for.  It has been reported that the Guard are not scheduled to be near any protest areas. 

I expect more protests tonight and this weekend. Keep an eye on this story.

Ruling Expected Today on Dakota Access Pipeline, Governor Calls in the National Guard

U.S. District Judge James A. Boasberg is expected to announce his ruling later today on the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline which is scheduled to run through North Dakota, into South Dakota, Iowa and connect with another pipeline in Illinois.

The Standing Rock Sioux have expresses concerns that the pipeline will damage historical ancestry landmarks, put their water supply at risk, and that the Army Corps of Engineers violated the National Historic Preservation Act when it decided to run the pipeline through their lands.  They are being represented by lawyers from Earthjustice.  Last week a temporary moratorium was enacted to stop construction of the project and both sides were given time over the last week to state their side of the story.  They are hoping for a permanent stoppage in today’s ruling.

The project is being built by a Texas company, Energy Transfer Partners, and they claim that the Standing Rock Sioux had ample time before construction began to state their case. They claim the pipeline would carry 400,000 barrels of crude oil per day from the Bakken region of North Dakota to the existing pipeline already in Illinois.

People have been out protesting in this area for several weeks now, or even months,  and on September 3, of this year, attack dogs and pepper spray were used on the protesters.

Just yesterday, North Dakota’s Governor, Jack Dalrymple,  activated the National Guard to assist the Morton County Sheriff’s department with traffic at hot spots and support in other ways if needed. Just having the presence of the guard there, they hope, will have a calming effect on the protesters if things go badly.

“The Guardsmen will not be going to the actual protest site,” the North Dakota National Guard said Thursday afternoon. “The governor also placed additional Guardsmen on standby alert in the event they are needed to support law enforcement response efforts.”

Stay tuned on this one folks, as things may get crazy.  The announcement is expected today before noon central time, and I will update when news breaks.
