Obama’s Unending Wars – Fronting the Foreign Policy of the Permanent Warfare State

A Book Review

In his conclusion Kuzmarov writes,

Though packaging himself as a peace candidate, Obama ultimately proved indispensable to the military-industrial complex in his ability to sustain the illusion of humanitarian intervention and defuse anti-war activism.”

Kuzmarov’s thematic idea is well presented and well supported.  His writing is easy to follow and each section has a clear, well written summary highlighting the ongoing message of Obama’s complicity with the warfare state.

Review: US Air Force Secret Space Program by Michael E. Salla

SUMMARY REVIEW

Michael E. Salla, US Air Force Secret Space Program (Exopolitics, 2019).

5 Stars — Best Over-All Timeline, Best of  Related Books by Same Author

Reviewed by Robert David Steele

This book — the fourth in a series — is a capstone work perfectly timed to the President’s planned disclosure of the past, present, and future space programs — the past an illegal program not approved by Congress; the present a program in flux; and the future potentially open and bright and including free energy for all on Earth (the primary secret of the secret space program).

Review: Selected by Extraterrestial My life in the secret world of UFOs, think-tanks and Nordic secretaries by William Mills Tompkins

5 Star, Intelligence (Extra-Terrestrial)

SUMMARY AND REVIEW

William Mills Tompkins (Author), Robert M. Wood (Editor, Introduction), Nick Redfern (Editor), Selected by Extraterrestrials: My life in the top secret world of UFOs, think-tanks and Nordic secretaries (Amazon CreateSpace, 2015).

4 Stars – Clearly a Great Deal to Offer But Too Scattered

Reviewed by Robert David Steele

UPDATE: See two videos by Kerry Cassidy below. Author — not book — rises to five stars for authenticity, integrity, and shared knowledge.

Although this book comes very highly recommended, and is one of the “foundation” books for those who claim we have a secret space fleet already in existence and have had anti-gravity propulsion and anti-aging technologies among many others for decades, it is simply not coherent enough, not well-documented enough, and not well-written enough to make it to five stars.

Review: To Catch a Spy – The Art of Counterintelligence

5 Star, Intelligence (Government/Secret)

James M. Olson

5 Star Indictment of US Counterintelligence

Despite this book being a decade late (the author left CIA in 1998) and somewhat lacking in deep specifics, I have to give it five stars because my own personal experience suggests that the author’s gracious indictment of US counterintelligence is so desperately needed that it would be a crime to diminish this book. It’s central message is sound: counterintelligence is vital and the USA stinks at counterintelligence.

5 Stars Best Available Overview, Most “Experts” Still in Denial

Augmented Intelligence is the new meme that goes beyond Collective Intelligence. The editor has done the best possible job of collecting inputs from top people, a few of whom I know such as Jim Spohrer, and I recommend the book without reservation. Certainly it is my hope that the editor will be recognized as a rising star and given the freedom to do more outreach to include travel including China, toward what I hope will be a more multinational follow-on book.

In A Lie Too Big to Fail, longtime Kennedy researcher (of both JFK and RFK) Lisa Pease lays out, in meticulous detail, how witnesses with evidence of conspiracy were silenced by the Los Angeles Police Department; how evidence was deliberately altered and, in some instances, destroyed; and how the justice system and the media failed to present the truth of the case to the public. Pease reveals how the trial was essentially a sham, and how the prosecution did not dare to follow where the evidence led.

A Lie Too Big to Fail asserts the idea that a government can never investigate itself in a crime of this magnitude.

5 Stars – Utterly brilliant insights and data, but publisher should have invested in graphics to match

Parag Khanna is for me the single best observer and reporter on the substance of Asia which he takes great pains to point out is not just China (a third of Asia’s population) but includes particularly vast swaths of Russia, India, Central Asia, Southeast Asia including Indonesia and Australia, and Turkey.

5 stars – Bottom Line: Kushner Sabotaged Trump’s First Two Years

I put this book down feeling that I had learned a great deal about how to get ready to be President; a great deal about how easy it is to derail a Presidential transition and the first two years of any presidency; and a great deal about Chris Christie as a serious patriot who should be brought back by President to help him finish the job.  A good title.

This book exudes integrity. Chris Christie is the real deal.

5 Stars – Authentic – Honors the President While Exposing All Who Would Betray the President

President Donald Trump has a right to be angry about this book because it violates a non-disclosure agreement signed by the author. However, I am quite certain the President has not actually read the book or he would realize that the author treats him with honor and respect while revealing a great deal the President may not actually know, about how everyone in the White House, including his executive secretary provided by the Republican National Committee (RNC), is stabbing him in the back.

Margin of Victory

“Margin of Victory: Five Battles that Changed the Face of Modern Warfare” by Douglas Macgregor.  Naval Institute Press. 2016, Hardcover, 268 pages, $34.95.

“Margin of Victory” is about change, intelligently and soberly recognizing the need for that change regardless of preconceived notions and the consequences of failing to do so.  Each of the conflicts analyzed by Macgregor, all seemingly unrelated at first glance, center on his repeated premise that victory will depend on lessons learned that will drive accepting change and implementing the hard decisions that must accompany transformation – notably in technology, people, strategy and organization.  While history provides perspective that must be considered, holding on to outmoded concepts or failing to properly leverage what’s been learned will ultimately lead to decisive defeat.

The Baylonian dragon of chaos
“sirrush” or mušuššu (??? )

There is a book published in 2011 which will provide background and textual substance to the news of the Chinese CRISPr creation of twins, the Neanderthal project on PBS and this recent discussion about cosmic fascism.

Amazon Page

It is Genes, Giants, Monsters, and Men: The Surviving Elites of the Cosmic War and Their Hidden Agenda by Joseph P. Farrell and I commend it to you.

It is about “ancient accounts of chimeras and monsters”, and “genetic engineering technology” — including “the engineered creation of mankind itself”.  Religions were promoted by these elite engineers “as tools of cohesion, conquest, and a considerable degree of obfuscation; as “commerce and contact between civilization and grew — often fostered by these very same elites —so to did religious agendas change, often violently, but just as often subtly.“
