State Dept Wants U.S. Passport Applicants to Reveal Lifetime Employment History

Monday, April 25, 2011

The State Department has proposed a draconian new questionnaire that would make it virtually impossible for some people to get a U.S. passport.

The new document (PDF) would require that certain applicants submit a list of every residence and every job they’ve ever had since birth. But the proposal gets worse.

It would require some applicants to submit information about their mother’s pre-natal and post-natal care and their mother’s residence one year before and after the birth, the persons in attendance at the birth and religious or institutional recordings of the birth.

In February, the State published a request in the Federal Register allowing 60 days for comment before the new rules go into effect.

The State Department estimates that the average respondent would be able to compile all this information in just 45 minutes, which is obviously absurd given the amount of research that is likely to be required to even attempt to complete the form,” Consumer Traveler’s Edward Hasbrouck said.

If you think you can blow this off, State Dept says form DS-5513 may be used as evidence in the prosecution of any individual who makes a false statement on the passport application and for other uses as set forth in the Prefatory Statement and the Passport System of Records Notice.

While there are still a few lost lambs who continue to believe in President Obama, this shocking example of Big Brother overreach should prove once and for all that the ubiquitous face of Barack Hussein Obama is pure, unadulterated tyranny.

    Obama seems committed to taking the USA down the same path Franco took Spain. We managed to survive but we paid a terrible price and lost a generation. Tyranny and totalitarianism is never the answer and it’s certainly no solution. I simply don’t see what Obama stands to gain from this other than angering and already angry electorate ready to throw him out of office. Perhaps the time has come for me to return to Barcelona?

  2. Massagatto says:

    I wonder when it becomes enough and the American people put down their sex toys and pornography and take to the streets?

    My guess is, $7 a gallon gas will lit the fuse. Then, Barry Soetoro may find Indonesia a suitable relocation destination. After all, he’s well know there and has many friends.

  3. DMason says:

    This is egregious. After 9/11, the American people became the bad guys even though we had nothing to do with the terrorist attacks on this nation. I am so tired of the Federal government using every opportunity to restrict and limit our rights. It’s the Federal government who needs to be limited and restricted. Can 2012 get here any sooner?

  4. Arizona Leatherneck says:

    This and the internet kill switch will work in perfect tandem.

    If I had known in 2008 what I know now, I would’ve stayed home on election day and drank a beer and watched TV.

    I always say, keep your passport current so you can get out of this insane asylum when and if you need to. It looks like now more than ever.

  6. Nan Yun says:

    My mother was born in rural China. There are no address number or street names in our province. So what do I write in the blank field? This is stupid and impractical.

  7. Jolly Roger says:

    The Rushpubliscums had waited a long time to impose Soviet-style border controls on Americans. And now it seems that this President is content to aid in the effort.

    I do not have the “long form” birth certificate; I was born in a bedroom, and every person who was attendant is dead. I’ve put off getting my passport renewed long enough, by all appearances.

  8. Sayingwhatneedsaying says:

    Dear O-Bummer, I’ll be happy to do anything you ask me…. But first you have to suck my BALLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Randy Arroyo says:

    If I were paranoid I might conclude the Obama administration is looking for ways to keep the prisoners inside the gates and stem the flow of Americans leaving this country each year for warmer climes like New Zealand and Panama. But, we know this administration wouldn’t be so sinister, or do we?

  10. Nobamanishqua says:

    It ain’t paranoia, Randy. Obama is a slippery devil and folks like you have started to connect the dots. Obama tainted the potential jury pool by telling protesters “Lt. Brad Manning broke the law.” So now now Obama is judge and jury all rolled into one? Only a dictator of incredible arrogance would pull a stunt like Obama did in San Francisco.

  11. Greg Equality Lengkong says:

    Since my mother passed away in 2007, and she had no sisters I can get address info from, this would mean I will be denied a passport renewal. Good, I hope the State Dept tries to pull such shit on me and I promise to bring a lawsuit against them.

    Bring it on, motherfuckers.

  12. Brigadoon says:

    The Obama administration is quietly becoming an Oligarchy. I want him out of office ASAP.

  13. Sayingwhatneedsaying says:

    If O-Bummer wants my emplyment record…………. then I demand to see his birth certificate!

  14. The Real Adam says:

    This is true madness. Proof that the Federal government has lost its mind.

    I mean, think about it: the proposal says “some people” but they don’t say who, will be asked to recall details about your mother’s address before you were here to know and recall religious details — if any at the time of your birth?

    It’s clear, this is the Obama junta trying to keep Americans locked behind bars. They are afraid we may leave and not return. An idea sounding better each day.

  15. Peace Nick says:

    What’s next from Obusha? Camps to house conscientious objectors and critics of his administration’s policies?

    He’s becoming more and more dangerous as his popularity slips away.

  16. Robyn says:

    I don’t need a passport. Us beaners are great at crossing into countries undetected.

  17. Jim says:

    ENOUGH with this sick paranoia. This will not make anyone safer. Yet another intrusive, unneeded, illogical proposal.

  18. HATER88 says:

    you are all fkin retards this was a bill put through to congress like the 100000s of other bills…. guess what 1. It didn’t pass 2. Obama didn’t write or submit it 3. The job market is narrowing this is more of a way to ensure a skilled labor force who hasn’t lied on every resume to get through life.

    They can get your employment history and all the other information off of your social security number which every employer asks for are you all so fkin stupid that you dont realise that they are getting this info as confirmation not as a record keeping….. If there is a job you dont want them to know about you probably were not working at it ledgitimately so there would be no record anyway…

    Your all a bunch of moron’s. Stick to playing dress up and having tea parties with your imaginary frineds.
