DOR, SSA, BATF, MIAC, DHS, DMV, MSHP ...and You

 
Missouri’s specific laws against participating in the federal RealID Act of 2005: 302.183 RSMo
 
The barrage of initials in the subject line of this post are some of the departments involved in the betrayal by the Missouri Governor Jay Nixon and Attorney General Christopher Koster against the citizens of Missouri. All drivers license and CCW license holders.
The Department of Revenue fed Missouri citizens private information to the Department of Homeland Security through the Motor Vehicle Department. The Missouri State Highway Patrol, Col. Ron Replogle,  gave a complete list of all (163,000+) Missouri CCW license holders to the Social Security Administration, twice.
 
Governor Nixon's response:
"Governor Jay Nixon has denied that concealed weapons permits were turned over to a "magical database" for federal agents to "mess with" Missourians."
 
MSHP Col. Ron Replogle said the discs he turned over to the Social Security Administration Office of the Inspector General were unreadable and destroyed. BUT... the SSA Inspector General said they were readable.
 
 
"Security Administration Inspector General (SSA OIG) Patrick O’Carroll, Jr. had told U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-Mo., that its investigators had been able to read the second disk."
 
As if this wasn't enough of a melee of lies, cover ups, back tracking and violation of Missouri law, according to documents provided by the Missouri Department of Revenue in response to a State Senate subpoena, the Missouri Highway Patrol provided a spreadsheet of names of people with Conceal Carry Weapons permits to the federal government as part of a joint venture with the Social Security Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

This scanned email is only one of 6 documents. To see all correspondence this is a link to the pdf file:
 
 
And we all remember what the MIAC is ... right?
 
Where is all of our information going?
"When the company verifies your identity and issues your license your private information is supposed to be destroyed but according to Senator Schaefer, no one at the state level is verifying that." 
 
Who is Jackie Bemboom and Who is funding this DMV change over of equipment and the illegal storage & transmission of Missourian's private information?
Well, the Department of Homeland Security... of course.
 
Finally, this was Gov. Nixon' response when asked if he knew his DoR was sending confidential information to the feds in direct violations of state law... a law that he himself signed:
“Like I say, we, we, we comport ourselves with the law and I’m not, I’m, I, I, I won’t…..uh…(pause)…y’know (pause) uh, We are, uh, (pause) we are following the laws as written by the, by, by the, by, in our state and the federal level, uh, and, uh, you now, I signed a law a couple of years ago saying , saying, what we’d do, and we’ve following those. so I, I uh you know, so I, I will only say, as is our usual (pause) process and procedure we follow the laws and will continue to.”


What can YOU do?
 

Please plan on attending a meeting with the Speaker of the Missouri House, Tim Jones, and State Senator Kurt Schaefer who are coming to Macon County to address the ongoing scandal with the Department of Revenue's illegal storage and transmission of Missourian's private information.
