America`s Hobson`s Choice: Leftist Obama, Treason Lobbyist McCain

Thus to entrust this man with the

must know is to endanger the country`s future.

But even if Obama were no further

Democratic Party, he is unfit because he is

course the fixing of elections (the

Well…there`s John McCain, the
Republican who claims America can rely
on him to ensure national security. This is a lie.
McCain`s record shows that he willingly increased
`s vulnerability
to future 9/11s
because he

placed a higher priority on protecting illegal aliens
And to gain this perceived political advantage, he
actually used the September 11 terrorist attacks as

The 9/11 Commissioners

that nearly all the

September 11 mass murderers
had authentic, US-issued

drivers licenses
that enabled the terrorists to rent
hotel rooms, cars and apartments, open bank accounts to
transfer funds and obtain everything else they needed to
plan, rehearse and carry out their attacks. And on the
morning of the attacks, the Commission found, the
hijackers used their US licenses, not their

foreign passports,
in order to

breeze by security
and board the planes they used to

3000 innocent people

. In short, these authentic US drivers` licenses were essential
tools for the terrorists.

The Commission emphasized that
identity documents are as important to terrorists as
money or weapons. It


"Recommendation: Secure
identification should begin in the United States. The federal
government should set standards for the issuance of
birth certificates and sources of identification, such
as driver`s licenses."

Government must
"meet its own
obligations to the American people to prevent the entry
of terrorists"


"disrupting terrorist travel"
by properly identifying all individuals entering and
leaving the
United States

McCain, like most of his fellow
politicians, chose to exploit 9/11 for his benefit. He
called for enactment of
"all forty-one" of the Commission`s recommendations. In 2004, he
introduced S.2774 which he

"an effort to fortify the nation`s homeland and national
security . . . to implement recommendations made by the
9/11 Commission."

But McCain was lying about the true
intent and effect of his bill. (The relevant language of
S.2774, later amended into S.2845), can be found


To carry out
this deception, McCain included lots of language that
created the illusion of creating strict federal
guidelines. Example:

"No federal agency may accept for any official purpose,
a drivers` license"
that did not meet certain
minimum standards that were to be set by the Secretary
of Homeland Security under the terms of the legislation.

strengthened the illusion by throwing in verbiage such
as requiring: "
security standards to ensure that driver`s licenses and identification
cards are—(i) resistant to tampering, alteration, or
counterfeiting; and (ii) capable of accommodating a
digital photograph or other unique identifier; and…"

But McCain
undermined the alleged intent of his legislation by
allowing the DHS Secretary to determine when it would be
"practicable" for the states to comply. This
meant that the Secretary, after being lobbied by the
Chamber of Commerce

, the

, the rest of the

Treason Lobby,
and no doubt McCain himself, could
have decided that the year 2050 was the earliest
date for states to implement whatever
regulations he decided to issue.,

To ensure a
significant delay, McCain included language that made
the earliest possible effective date for those
regulations eight
after enactment of the bill. Under the terms
of the bill, if it were signed into law in December
2004, the Secretary would have had to issue regulations
by December 2005 and states could not be subject to
these regulations until December 2007.

In addition,
licenses issued up to that date under the old
regulations to illegal aliens (and any terrorists and
violent felons among them)
would remain valid until the expiration date of the license. That
meant that any illegal aliens (and terrorists etc.) who
got their licenses in December 2007 would still have in
their possession "valid IDs" issued by state
government until December 2012.

Unless of course
the Secretary had decided that it wasn`t
to deny Muslim terrorists licenses for
another few decades.

`s security to
this extent was not sufficient for McCain. He also included language that actually denied the Secretary of

Homeland Security
any power to establish regulations
that would stop states from issuing licenses to
terrorists: [The
may not directly
or indirectly infringe on a State`s power to set
eligibility criteria for obtaining a driver`s license or
identification card from that State"

And, just in case the point didn`t
get across in that paragraph, McCain repeated it in the
next section, to make dead certain that states could go
on forever issuing licenses to illegal aliens (and
therefore the unknown terrorists among them):
Secretary] ((C)
may not require a State to comply with any such
regulation that conflicts with or otherwise interferes
with the full enforcement of such eligibility criteria
by the State."

The effect of McCain`s
"9/11 Commission
Report Implementation Act of 2004"
was to embed for
the first time in U.S. law the principle that states are
entitled to grant drivers` licenses and other valid identity
documents to illegal aliens (and terrorists etc.)

Prior to this time federal law did
not address the issue. So it was a matter of debate
whether states could legally issue licenses and other ID
to illegal aliens (and terrorists etc.)

Thus, when members of
9/11 Families for a
Secure America
and other opponents of issuing
licenses to illegals (and terrorists etc.) lobbied state
legislatures to end the practice, we argued that it
undermined enforcement of federal immigration law. In
response the ACLU, Catholic Church and the rest of the
illegal alien/terrorist lobby claimed that because
federal law was silent on the matter states were free to
give ID to illegals (and terrorists etc.) if they

McCain`s so-called
"9/11 Commission
would have settled the matter. . . in favor of
allowing states to issue licenses to illegals (and
terrorists etc.).

On the floor of the Senate.
McCain misled America about
the intent of his bill, saying:

"This amendment addresses the terrorist travel and screening sections of
the 9/11 Commission report. Contained in this amendment
are the recommendations found on pages 383-390 of the
9/11 Commission report."

"Much remains to be done to target terrorist travel, combine our
multiple screening systems and ensure that
identification documents used to enter this country or
to be used as feeder documents are trustworthy."

"Better technology and training to detect terrorist travel documents are
the most important immediate steps to reduce America`s
vulnerability to clandestine entry. . . "

"By restricting terrorist access to
travel documents,
we increase the difficulty to
travel into the United States. Our legislation aims
to address this pressing issue…"

"Lastly, this amendment would implement 9/11 Commission`s recommendation
that the Federal Government set standards for the
issuance of birth certificates, driver`s licenses, and
other sources of identification. "

"Our amendment would require birth certificates and driver`s licenses to
meet new minimum Federal standards in order to be
accepted by a Federal agency for any official purpose.
Minimum standards would be established for proof and
verification of identity by the applicant, and to make
the documents themselves more resistant to
counterfeiting and tampering. The amendment also would
require minimum standards for the processing of
applications to address a widely recognized and growing
problem of fraud within the

offices that issue licenses

birth certificates,
including the Arizona Department
of Transportation`s Motor Vehicle Division."[Senate
Debate on the National Intelligence Reform Act

McCain lied in his remarks
on the floor. He evidenced his understanding of the
importance of denying
travel documents to terrorists.
He claimed that his
legislation will implement the 9/11 Commission`s
recommendations on licenses and that his bill
"minimum standards"
. But by allowing issuance to
illegal aliens—people whose

true identities are unknown
—he was rendering
meaningless the entire legislation, and making a mockery
of the

Commission`s recommendations.

McCain intended to fool
Americans into thinking that they would be protected by
his bill, when in fact he was guaranteeing access for
illegals (and

therefore terrorists etc.
) to the very documents
that made possible the 9/11 attacks.

S 2774 was passed, over the objections of nearly all

House Republicans
and signed into law by Pres. Bush
on December 17, 2004. However, in 2005, House Republicans, led
by Rep.

F. James Sensenbrenner
managed to pass the REAL ID
Act (over the strong opposition of

Sen. McCain
) as part of an emergency appropriation
for US troops fighting in Iraq. Thus was America saved
from Sen. McCain`s duplicity.

Truly, American voters face

Hobson`s choice
in voting for president in 2008. The
Democratic candidate, B. Hussein Obama, product of and
puppet for crooks, lifelong buddy of Communist bombers
and racists. The Republican candidate a guy who pretends
to be guardian of national security while selling it out
for treasonous political gain.

The political system has
failed us.
