5 Stars – Three Books in One — 9/11 Disclosure; Zionist Threat in Detail; and Role of Satanic Pedophilia as a Control Element

I cannot do this book justice in the way of a summary review as I did his most recent other book but as someone who has also published on 9/11 and taken a strong interest in the Zionist threat to the USA specifically and the world generally, I can certainly recommend this book most strongly after having gone through every page but not read every word.

At one level this is the most detailed book I have found that covers not just 9/11, but a variety of false flag operations and false narratives including the Oklahoma bombing and Waco. The criminality by the FBI and the Department of Justice that is detailed in this book could be used to bring indictments against a hundred or more serving or retired officers.

This is a summary review of a 741 page book that is so very important, so comprehensive, that I feel compelled to go far past my normal 4-6 page review and offer the enlightened and skeptical readers a 40 page summary with quotes and links.

My INTENT is to inspire purchase of the book even if only to browse multiple chapters. David Icke has produced a master work. The index alone is an education. I am the author of this review and have previously published it free online at https://phibetaiota.net, my personal blog. I have given myself permission to republish this as a Kindle for the convenience of those who love Kindle.

There are three kinds of holistic thinking: secular, ecological, and cosmic. With the exception of David Icke I know of no one, anywhere, who actually thinks holistically at all three levels (I fall short at the cosmic level).

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.

SUMMARY REVIEW

David Icke, Everything You Need to Know But Have Never Been Told (David Icke Books, 2018). 750 pages.

6 Star: Measured Revelation on the War Between Humanity and the Satanic Deep State

Reviewed by Robert David Steele

There are three kinds of holistic thinking: secular, ecological, and cosmic. With the exception of David Icke I know of no one, anywhere, who actually thinks holistically at all three levels (I fall short at the cosmic level).

While this book is a monster to read at 741 pages, it is most ably put together with eighteen chapters that I will summarize individually, each chapter liberally illustrated with graphics from his epic personal appearances that are now intellectual and spiritual “rock star” events. If the Pope worshiping Satan on Easter Sunday is the pinnacle of evil, then David Icke saying “We are One – BE the God Particle” is the cosmic “absolute good” and alternative to the evil represented by the Zionists, the Vatican, and the varied secret societies who thrive on chaos, on war, on human suffering and human trafficking, on fear & hate energy.

The CIA Takeover of America in the 1960s Is the Story of Our Times

Edward Curtin in Unz Review

The assassination of the top four leaders of the political left in the five year period – President John Kennedy in 1963, Malcolm X in 1965, and Martin Luther King, Jr. and Senator Robert Kennedy in 1968 – represented nothing less than a slow-motion coup on the political scene.

TAVISTOCK INSTITUTE: Social Engineering the Masses by Daniel Estulin (Trine Day, 2015)

7 Stars Life Transformational – A Seminal Work Integrating Deep Looks from Others – A Mind-Altering Soul-Enhancing Book

Given the author’s past as a former Russian intelligence employee, I have considered the possibility that this book is an active disinformation treatise.  While some of this information may be exaggerated or mis-interpreted, on balance I believe this to be a most valuable holistic perspective essential to taking down the Deep State.

My bottom line up front: the Deep State — the vestiges of the Black Nobility/Ceasar, the British Empire, the Vatican, the Zionists, and the Freemasons (33+ only – the rest can be saved) and their banking fronts including the Rothschilds and Central Banks — are the common enemies of America, China, and Russia as well as all other nation-states and cultural/ethnic/linguistic tribes.  We are not doing well at collaborating against these common enemies.

4 Stars – Useful Summary

The core of this book is that the Queen of England and the British Empire, with MI-6 prominently serving as a global saboteur and blackmail agent, is the heart of the Deep State, NOT the Rothschilds and NOT the Zionists.

The author buys in the 9/11 official narrative and relies too heavily on single sources (LaRouche, Madsen, Fitts) for each chapter while missing the giants (e.g. Peter Dale Scott on the Deep State) — this is an Internet sourced book, not a library sourced book.

He does, however, provide a useful compilation of insights, generally from others and woven together here for good effect, and I have no regrets about buying and reading this book along with his earlier Tavistock Institute: Social Engineering the Masses,  that again seeks to demonize the British while giving everyone else — particularly the Zionists and the Vatican — a bye.

Here are some of my notations:

Worth a Look: Stalking the Viet Cong Inside Operation Phoenix A Personal Account

Intelligence (Government/Secret), Worth A Look
Amazon Page

Stu Herrington

Originally published as Silence Was A Weapon: The Vietnam War In the Villages (1982)

In a gripping memoir that reads like a spy novel, one man recounts his personal experience with Operation Phoenix, the program created to destroy the Vietcong’s shadow government, which thrived in the rural communities of South Vietnam.

Stuart A. Herrington was an American intelligence advisor assigned to root out the enemy in the Hau Nghia province. His two-year mission to capture or kill Communist agents operating there was made all the more difficult by local officials who were reluctant to cooperate, villagers who were too scared to talk, and VC who would not go down without a fight. Herrington developed an unexpected but intense identification with the villagers in his jurisdiction–and learned the hard way that experiencing war was profoundly different from philosophizing about it in a seminar room.

5 Star Weakest of the Three But a Fine Conclusion

This is the final of three books written by a CIA clandestine operations officer who in my view has created a most extraordinary trilogy that not only should be required reading for every aspiring spy, but is recommended for every citizen as well. This is CIA at its best, with all of its problems revealed alongside its priceless contributions to the USA.

6-Star Deeply Authentic Book About Nuances of Spying

After I read and then reviewed the first book, Red Sparrow, I was so deeply impressed that I immediately ordered the other two, this one and The Kremlin’s Candidate, intending to read them on airplanes.  That did not last.

This book went to my night-table, then to reading two hours past my bedtime, to last night when I could not put it down and read it until midnight.  That is not normal for me, particularly as a former spy who considers most spy books to be utter crap.

This is not only the most authentic and nuanced book I have read about spying and why human intelligence and particularly offensive counterintelligence and covert action matter, but it is spectacularly well put together.  The author is gifted in turns of phrase that make you laugh or cry or both.

6 Stars Best New Espionage Everything

I have reviewed over 300 books on intelligence, almost all of them non-fiction. Apart from the George Smiley series by John Le Carre the only other fiction book I can think of that garnered my respect was Tears of Autumn by Charles McCarry.

This book, by a former SE Division (Soviet Division) Operations Officer also known as a Case Officer (C/O) is SENSATIONAL.  I bought it at the airport when my planned reading for the return flight turned out to be junk (Life After Google).
