Scattered around the United States, unknown by most Americans, are dozens of Islamic terrorist-training compounds known as “Muslims of the Americas.” Under the leadership of a radical Pakistani cleric, Sheikh Mubarik Gilani, Muslims of the Americas has thousands of devoted followers who are being groomed for homegrown jihad.
In never-before-seen video footage, Christian Action Network exposes these dangerous terrorist compounds and reveals for the first time a secret training tape in which American Muslims are recruited to “join one of the most advanced training courses in Islamic military warfare”… right here in America.

In this first video (5 mins), Dr Sims looks at the information revolution – how the rise of the internet has fundamentally altered intelligence-gathering techniques, bringing challenges and opportunities in a globalised security environment.
In part two of my interview with world renowned intelligence expert and Visiting Professor at Georgetown University’s Center for Security Studies Dr Jennifer Sims, we discuss the close relationship between internet penetration and government instability.
Dr Sims presents her theory about how the spread of ‘viral’ ideas, through improved internet/communication mediums, can lead to rapid mobilisation of these ideas across the citizenry, which may force government instability. Dr Sims looks at examples in the Middle East and Africa, where internet penetration has quickly moved from 15% to 40% of the population, which she calls ‘the critical period where political instability can happen’. The rapid spread of communications is empowering to people and can be for good, says Dr Sims, but governments need to take notice.
Dr Sims talks about the tremendous change in intelligence studies in the US, with a significant number of well-known women reaching senior levels in the field. It is a testament to the national security studies programs at universities across the US, says Dr Sims, which are becoming ‘increasingly female in their composition’ — not because they are looking at gender statistics but because they are ‘looking for who is good’ when searching to bring people into programs.
Women are increasingly occupying key security and intelligence positions in the US, and Dr Sims encourages women in Australia who are interested in national security studies to pursue it as a career.
WATCH THIS. 12 year old Canadian girl on banksters and debt
This little girl is simply amazing. She must have some pretty awesome parents. In a concise and clear way she explains the problem of national debt in language that anyone can understand.
Phi Beta Iota: Going viral, and rightly so.
When War is Promoted as a Remedy for Terror
The You Tube of my San Francisco presentation on the tenth anniversary of 9/11 is being presented to the public here for the first time in early March of 2012.
Anthony J. Hall is Professor of Globalization Studies. His recent book, Earth into Property, sets 9/11 and the 9/11 Wars in the context of over 500 years of globalization. The publication of the American Library Association called Earth into Property “a scholarly tour de force” The Independent in the UK chose it as one of the best books of 2010. Professor Hall worked recently with Splitting The Sky, Cynthia McKinney, Ramsay Clark, Joshua Blakeney and others to pressure law enforcement officials in Canada to arrest George W. Bush for war crimes. Professor Hall’s recent work includes seminal investigation and publication on the nuclear catastrophe at Fukushima.

So many smug people claim conspiracy theories don’t exist, they are something less educated people believe. Next time someone tells you this, direct them to this compilation of 33 conspiracy theories that turned out true.
Phi Beta Iota: “Conspiracy theory” is one step up (a big step) from “watch your language.” A huge piece of the “control fraud” with active government participation in suppressing the truth, a clear betrayal of the public trust. The list is useful but not as complete or structured as is now possible, while also too US-centric. The video series Core of Corruption, is recommended.

If you enjoy this article, please check out my documentary film series, Core of Corruption.
Below the Line: Complete List.
Clay Shirky has the best overview I’ve seen/heard/read of PIPA and SOPA and the context from whence they emerged; the bottom line: the legilsation’s about wanting us to be passive consumers, not producing and not sharing.
Phi Beta Iota: To this we would add it is also about a criminally negligent and corrupt Congress exercising its power against the public interest (treason), and a criminally negligent and corrupt combination of Hollywood and Internet Service Providers seeking to legitimize vigilante arbitrary untempered attacks on anyone anywhere without due process.
Occupy 9/11 is emergent. This film, loaded on 1 February 2011, is now going viral. At 2:28:42, this is one of the best documentaries on the topic, and it is free online.
Phi Beta Iota: This is an extraordinary contribution. It is highly recommended for students as well as adult learning clubs; it provides the best “overview” in one place.
UPDATE: I was not happy with these, the first one got a lot of views, the other two did not, so I have removed them. Instead I recommend the below mid-1990’s condensation of my 1976 thesis.
Governor Buddy Roemer merits a look.
Buddy Roemer is a candidate for the Republican nomination for president. He served in Congress from 1981-88 as one of the last truly conservative Democrats who crossed the aisle to back the Reagan agenda. He later was governor of Louisiana and switched party affiliation to the GOP. A longtime business executive, Mr. Roemer founded and was CEO of Business First Bank, a small community lender with $650 million is assets.

Generic is worthless–focus on real specific threats and opportunities. Do the collection rather than just speculating without data. Do not extrapolate from the past — instead intuit and shape the future.
First, study your business model. Then simplify it. Then innovate.
Competitive Intelligence (CI) is not impacting on innovation.

Not surprisingly your feelings about CIA [Robert Steele: Iran Arrests Twelve CIA Agents] have been echoed by Bob Baer whose principal area of operations was the Levant. As in this ABC interview: Former CIA Agent: U.S. Has Lost Its Spy Mojo [includes short video]
“But former senior CIA officer Robert Baer told ABC News this week that the loss of assets was more than a mere setback, and not an isolated incident but part of a disturbing pattern.
“When you lose your entire station, either in Tehran or Beirut, that’s a catastrophe,” said Bob Baer, a legendary CIA agent whose Middle East exploits were fictionalized in the George Clooney film “Syriana.” Baer said the disaster was due in part to a new generation of agents that has forgotten, or never learned, the traditional methods of intelligence gathering.
“They don’t understand tradecraft,” Baer said. “And we have lost our touch in espionage.”” (Emphasis mine)
