Today was a good day for freedom: Kaye Beach¶s legal journey moves forward
21 July 2011 Kaye Beach and her attorneys, Benjamin Sisney and John Echols of the law firm Echols and Associates prevailed in traffic court. Kaye was ticketed for driving with an expired driver¶s license. Today, 21 July was Kaye¶s arraignment. Benjamin Sisney and John Echols presented Kaye¶s ³case´ to the city attorney who subsequently decided to dismiss the charge. The city attorney was very considerate and should be applauded for the time and consideration given to Kaye and her attorneys.John Echols and Benjamin Sisney are well known and very highly regarded. Some may ask ³Why traffic court´? Traffic court was a critical step before moving forward with a civil suit. Kaye had previously exhausted all administrative remedies before being cited for driving with an expired driver¶s license. Kaye had petitioned the Commissioner of the Department of Public Safety and the General Counsel for the Department of Public Safety asking for relief, an exemption from providing her biometrics (fingerprints and high resolution digital facial image/photograph). Kaye was informed there is no exemption; she must provide her biometrics and social security number. This week the CFIUS (Committee of Foreign Investment in the United States) approved the sale of L-1 Identity Solutions, a company that provides nearly every driver¶s license in the United States to be sold to Safran, a French company that is 30% owned by the French government. L-1 also provides the biometric software for driver¶s licenses. Each citizen should contact the agency or department in their respective states that oversees the issuance of driver¶s licenses to determine if L-1 has direct or indirect access to your state Department of Motor Vehicle database, thus your personal information including your biometrics and Social Security Number. As a point of fact; Safran has been a valued partner of Communist China for nearly 40 years http://www.safran-group.com/IMG/pdf/EN_mag5_p40-43-2.pdf Congress was absent in this decision making process. The Treasury Department has jurisdiction over the CFIUS. This development makes Kaye¶s case even more important if that is possible. Many people have contacted the Constitutional Alliance stating they did not believe driving is a privilege. Others have said that a photograph violates their religious beliefs. I do not speak for Kaye or her attorneys. The arguments that will be made in the civil case will be decided by Kaye and her attorneys. I do know that if other attorneys or advocacy groups would like to participate on Kaye¶s behalf that participation would be welcomed. A special email account
email@example.com been set up to facilitate bringing other attorneys and advocacy groups together with Kaye¶s attorneys. This is a significant victory for a number of reasons. First and foremost had Kaye been found guilty she would have been the defendant in a criminal case (appeal of the traffic court decision). With the dismissal Kaye is now able to move forward as the plaintiff in a civil suit. What this means is Kaye and her attorneys are no longer on the defensive which was the case as long as Kaye remained a defendant. Kaye and her legal team will be on the offensive as Kaye will be the plaintiff and the state the defendant in a civil suit. I want to thank all the people who have supported Kaye. Kaye is sacrificing not just for herself but for all freedom loving citizens. There are many issues that will play out during Kaye¶s case. Does the presumption of innocence mean anything? What does the Fourth Amendment mean? The First Amendment starts with the wording ³Congress shall make no law´. What does Congress shall make no law mean? Personally, I believe as Kaye¶s case moves forward citizens will find out if the Bill of Rights has any meaning. An argument can be made that Kaye¶s case touches on nearly every Amendment in the Bill of Rights. I applaud Kaye for her courage and commitment. Kaye is a mother, wife, patriot and Christian. Kaye has a legal defense fund set up. The war chest must be replenished as Kaye¶s battle moves forward. Now is not the time to hesitate or count on others. Now is the time for all freedom loving citizens to do what they can to assist in adding to the war chest. It is very important that we each share Kaye¶s story with all the people we are in contact with. As updates occur such as this one, they will be posted on the Constitutional Alliance web-site www.constitutionalalliance.org A civil suit of the nature Kaye will be filing will be a costly proposition but I would submit there is no amount of money that is worth more than our freedom; our rights and liberty. Many people I know are supporting candidates and/or parties for the 2012 elections. By supporting Kaye now we do not have to wait until 2012 or worse yet 2013 when the winners of the 2012 elections take office.
