Coast Guard buys MaxID’s iDLMaxG TWIC biometric readers

April 20, 2010

MaxID, a provider of identity solutions, and CoreStreet, an ActivIdentity subsidiary and provider of credential validation solutions, announced the sale of additional iDLMaxG Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC) accredited handheld biometric reader devices to the U.S. Coast Guard.

The iDLMaxG units delivered to the Coast Guard are bundled with the CoreStreet PIVMAN client software, which provides a TWIC‐compatible solution that has been in operational use for more than three years in the DOD, Department of Homeland Security, various states, and is on the FIPS 201 Approved Products List.

The United States Coast Guard is mandated with the enforcement of the TWIC program. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

The iDLMaxG is a multi‐modal, rugged mobile computer that includes QWERTY keyboard, contact card, contactless card, bar code, optical fingerprint, and optional magnetic swipe and MRZ readers with a digital camera, GPS, and comprehensive communications capabilities.

The iDLMaxG is an integrated mobile solution for badging and identity management requirements that is capable of checking TWIC, CAC, PIV, PIV-I, FRAC cards, passports and driver licenses


It is inevitable that these TWIC Card Readers with the capability to read State driver licenses to trickle down to the States. Soon you will see State and local law enforcement with the Card Readers scanning your driver’s license. Something must be said about Ben Franklin’s quotation, “He who sacrifices freedom for security deserves neither.”  

In regard to these new TWIC Card Readers the question here is what about the Second Amendment rights of U.S. citizens to travel intrastate and interstate? The full scope of Second Amendment rights in terms of the U.S. Department of Justice and the federal courts refusing to address the full scope of Second Amendment rights combined with intrastate and interstate travel, i.e. National Open Carry under the Fourteenth Amendment’s privileges and immunities clause and under the Common Defence clause of the Preamble to the Constitution or the NRA’s version, National Reciprocity for Concealed Carry under the Tenth Amendment’s police power of the States to fraudulently immitate Fourteenth Amendment rights under the due process clause) .

If the U.S. Government continues to ignore the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding U.S. citizens in the development of these TWIC Card Readers then holders of this TWIC Cards will become slaves to the U.S. Government.

A good philosophical question here is whether investing in MaxID would be considered treason to American freedom as being Ben Franklin’s worst nightmare. Are we in the middle of a transformation to a Soviet Union-type of communist/socialist government where if we “opt out” of all these new technicaly scannersd from naked body scanners to handheld card readers. This gives new meaning to “Your papers please!” (Driver’s license, passport, TWIC Card, and anything else with Smart Card technology. Ben Franklin’s bones are surely rattling in his grave over this.

And where is the NRA on the issue of Second Amendment rights to interstate travel in regard to these TWIC Card Readers?

My Amended Admiralty/RICO Act lawsuit against the United States, et al will address these issues in defense of National Open Carry because if one state allows open carry for intrastate travel then why can’t we have open carry in every state for interstate travel?
