1 – IRS will require taxpayers to sign up with ID.me to access their online accounts
CBS News reports: Starting this summer, taxpayers wanting to access their online accounts on IRS.gov will soon be required to take a selfie and verify their identity with ID.me.

Existing online accounts with IRS.gov, which require only an email and password to access, will no longer work as of the middle of 2022, the agency says. The IRS says the move is necessary to protect taxpayers from potential identity theft, but privacy advocates say it’s invasive and point out that the company behind ID.me has a spotty record in verifying people’s identities.

The move “will only lead to further ruin for Americans when their data is inevitably breached,” Jackie Singh, director of technology and operations at the Surveillance Technology Oversight Project, said on Twitter.

ID.me, a 12-year-old company that started as a way for military veterans to get discounts, has boomed during the pandemic, becoming the government’s default ID-verification system. The company has pulled in over $200 million in venture funding and secured contracts with 27 states as they try to root out fraud in the unemployment system, for instance. It’s valued at $1.5 billion, Bloomberg reported.

“The IRS emphasizes taxpayers can pay or file their taxes without submitting a selfie or other information to a third-party identity verification company. Tax payments can be made from a bank account, by credit card or by other means without the use of facial recognition technology or registering for an account,” the agency said in a statement.

However, taxpayers will need to register with the new security system to see records of previous payments, access their wage transcripts or to access their Child Tax Credit Update portal. Additional IRS tools will transition to use ID.me verification “over the next year,” the agency said.

DML: Is there ANYONE who is comfortable with this????

2 – Top House Democrat Says Midterms Won’t Be Legitimate If ‘Voting Rights’ Aren’t Passed
The Daily Caller reports: Majority Whip James Clyburn said Thursday while on CNN that the upcoming midterms will not be legitimate if “voting rights” aren’t passed, echoing a similar sentiment made by President Joe Biden Wednesday.

“Do you agree with what he said in that press conference, are you concerned that without these voting rights bills the election results won’t be legitimate?” CNN host Kasie Hunt asked.

“I’m absolutely concerned about that,” Clyburn, a Democratic Rep. representing South Carolina’s 6th District said. “Let me remind the audience, that in 1965 at the time of the advent of the Voting Rights Act, only 3% of African Americans in Alabama were registered to vote. We come in with the 1965 Voting Rights Act and look what we have now. Nine years ago the Supreme Court took direct aim at that act in Shelby v. Holder and got rid of preclearance.”

DML: I say elections won’t be legitimate if the Democrats’ federal takeover of our elections is passed!  Who thinks elections can be legitimate without voter ID?

3 – Former CBP Chief: Biden Invites More than 3,000,000 Border Crossers to U.S.
Breitbart reports: Former Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Mark Morgan says more than three million foreign nationals “have tried to violate America’s sovereignty and illegally enter” the United States under President Joe Biden.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has not officially released illegal immigration totals for December 2021. This week, though, the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency revealed in a court brief that nearly 180,000 border crossers were apprehended that month.

Morgan said the number of border crossers and illegal aliens apprehended at the southern border last year, coupled with those who successfully illegally entered the U.S. and those who are immediately turned away by Border Patrol, is upwards of three million.

“In 12 months, CBP recorded more than two million encounters along the southwest border, a shocking and historic number,” Morgan, a Heritage Foundation visiting fellow, said in a statement.

DML: Open-borders Biden is destroying the country.

4 – New York Times Refers To Women As ‘Menstruators’ For The First Time
The Daily Caller reports: The New York Times referred to women as “menstruators” for the first time in a Thursday article on changing attitudes towards feminine hygiene products.

“New menstruators,” the article said in reference to young girls who have recently started their periods, “often turn to a parent for products and advice — now parents can hand over more than a disposable pad or tampon.”

The article avoided using feminine pronouns when noting that “the average menstruator can use thousands of tampons in their lifetime.”

The author did not use the words “woman” or “female” at any point in the article, and the article only says “girls” in reference to two specific girls the NYT interviewed for the piece. Instead, the author says “people” when referring to women experiencing menstruation periods and “young people” to describe girls experiencing menstruation.

“Young menstruators are having a completely different experience in terms of managing their periods with reusables throughout their life,” Michela Bedard, executive director of Period Inc., told the NYT.

DML: Just can’t make this stuff up. The left has definitely fallen off the cliff!

5 – Preteens may be vaxxed without parents’ permission in CA
The Associated Press reports: California would allow children age 12 and up to be vaccinated without their parents’ consent, the youngest age of any state, under a proposal late Thursday by a state senator.

Alabama allows such decisions at age 14, Oregon at 15, Rhode Island and South Carolina at 16, according to Sen. Scott Wiener, a Democrat from San Francisco who is proposing the change. Only Washington, D.C., has a lower limit, at age 11.

Wiener argued that California already allows those 12 and up to consent to the Hepatitis B and Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines, and to treatment for sexually transmitted infections, substance abuse and mental health disorders.

“Giving young people the autonomy to receive life-saving vaccines, regardless of their parents’ beliefs or work schedules, is essential for their physical and mental health,” he said. “It’s unconscionable for teens to be blocked from the vaccine because a parent either refuses or cannot take their child to a vaccination site.”

Currently in California, minors ages 12 to 17 cannot be vaccinated without permission from their parents or guardian, unless the vaccine is specifically to prevent a sexually transmitted disease. Wiener’s bill would lift the parental requirement for that age group for any vaccine that has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The ACLU recently gave Wiener a “100% score” and call him a “civil liberties champion.”

    • Wonder what would happen if everyone posed for their obligatory IRS-ID wearing their obligatory mask ?

      Cliburn is the face of racism at it’s worst.

  1. Let me get this straight, photo ID with vaccine passport for everyday life things – not racist; Scanned facial ID for taxes – not racist; Photo ID for voting – Extremely racist and the end of democracy for all Americans and life as we know it. Hmmm…something doesn’t make sense here. 🤔. I guess I need to lose my common sense to understand it.

  2. Strange how the 2020 election was legitimate without these new voting rights! Now Dems say it won’t be legitimate because they know they will lose!

  3. ID for everything,EXCEPT to vote because we need an ID to keep someone from cheating but if we require it to vote it will destroy our rights and democracy. What kind of idiots believe this crap.
    Soon young kids especially girls won’t need their parents permission to get married at age as young as 10. This is things that sick socialist are looking forward to

  4. isn’t showing ID racist I mean showing ID for the IRS but not showing ID for voting doesn’t make any sense but that’s the left for you

  5. Big pharma will eventually push to have full control of our kids to use them as lab rats. Using new laws to strip parental rights. Parents have handed this over during the pandemic by injecting their kids with this big experiment when kids weren’t even at risk. Fear fills their wallet!

  6. So, if the midterms won’t be legit, they’re basically saying that the 2020 election, with supposed highest turnout ever, wasn’t legit. Thus proving Trumps point. Needless to say, they won’t agree on that score.

  7. Vaccinate a kid without parental consent and something happens and the parent doesn’t know that the kid got a shot so they can’t tell tell the doctor and the kid is seriously injured, maimed for life or dies and NO ONE is held responsible. What of the kids that can’t or shouldn’t get a vaccine for medical reasons? Can’t sue the company because they made sure that they couldn’t be held responsible!

    Well the only bright thing to come out of all the places that have vax papers and require a photo I’d are proving that ANYONE can get one. The left won’t admit that but they’ve proven it none the less.

    Can’t offend the trans woman just because it can’t have a period that would be phobic of you! Girls are being taught that they are second class citizens and everything that happens to them is their fault so why not tell them they are now reduced to nothing but a menstrating thing. Then the medical community, educational institutions and families can’t understand why girls are so depressed that they are self harming, attempting suicide, committing suicide or turning to drugs and alcohol to try to cope!
