Phase I of #UNRIG, in which I teamed up with Cynthia McKinney to offer the provocative vision of an alt-right white guy and former spy and then non-profit educator united with an alt-left black woman and six-term Member of Congress who refused to sign the pledge to place Israel First, is over. Our campaign was fatally wounded by #GoogleGestapo, a Deep State system of control and censorship that combined media hits jobs, MeetUp paid network cancellations, and hundreds of trolls who can get any person or institution labeled as a hater, spammer, or – the latest – purveyor of pornographic content. Read the article – it is the first-ever over-all description of “the system” that appears to be harmonized by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) on behalf of the Deep State.
It’s a bit pre-mature to talk about running against Donald Trump in 2020. We need to see how the 100+ indictments play out; how deeply Attorney General Jeff Sessions tapped into the unprocessed NSA databases (I and one other told him he could easily nail 2,500 traitors, pedophiles, and frauds (both charity and electoral) if he followed our 26 May 2017 advisory); and whether the President will champion the Election Reform Act of 2017; an Open Source Agency with a Trump Channel; and a Grand Strategy conversation with America.
I have executed a false flag operation – no one died – for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The term “false flag” means nothing more or less than “not what it seems.” The FBI, our final line of defense against domestic treason or foreign covert operations on US soil, appears to have sacrificed its integrity and turned false flag terrorism into a budget-building campaign.
The following groups of anomalous questions are addressed:
In this book, the author, drawing extensively on his intelligence and military background, has cleanly written an easy to follow book, that outlines a careful course of action for developing a new kind of global information sharing infrastructure. To be headquartered at the UN, this new infrastructure would make it possible for every organization (and through them, everyone) on the globe to share open-source intelligence equally as a free public resource. If it is successful, this new global brain could transform our world from its current insecurity-driven and corrupt corporate dominated lose-lose, economic and conflict trap, into a much revived win-win strategy for bottom-up collective survival in a peaceful and sustainable world economy.
At least that is the theoretical hope and vision. On paper, and in principle, it is a stunningly sexy and attractive vision, one that, should it prove operationally testable and feasible, could indeed have the important side benefit and advantage of creating new bottom-up wealth, energizing the world economy and easing world tensions by reducing mistrust and fear back down to the noise level.
If there’s a single Founding Father of the Open Source movement, Robert D. Steele is it. Everyone else has been playing catchup. And if you don’t know what the Open Source revolution is, you need to read this book. You don’t even need to know why! You need to buy it, read it, and then you’ll *know* why. No other book on Open Source can open your eyes the way this one can. That’s because there’s no potential use of Open Source intelligence that Steele hasn’t anticipated. Collective Intelligence is coming! It’s an unstoppable force. And it will change everything. So if you like to know about things like that in advance, you need to buy this book.
The information age that was created by personal computers was just a kiddie car with a squeaky horn. By comparison, the open source revolution is a freight train. Its potential to change your world is orders of magnitude greater. This is not hyperbole. In fact superlatives can’t begin to express the ground-shaking potential of this next wave of human evolution.
Real Life From Building the Boat to Being Captured by the Chinese
February 16, 2010
David J. Steele
I watched my father build the Piver Tri-Maran in his garage and front yard of our home in Saigon, South Viet-Nam (at the time). This book is a still exciting story of an oil engineer and manager (at the time in charge of all Esso supply for all of Viet-Nam) who built a boat from scratch and sailed it from Saigon toward Hong Kong.
20 miles off the coast of Hainan (by his calculations) he was rammed by militia-pirates and the boat sunk, leaving him in the water. He was taken prisoner and vanished from the public eye. Months later he was released into Hong Kong with some photos of pieces of his boat washed up on shore, and his sextant.
The best part of the book for me has always been his account of being treated as a guest rather than a prisoner in China, and when asked what Americans drank with their meals, his response “a big bottle of beer.” That’s what he got, and he claims that is why he only lost 40 pounds or whatever it was.
I still have the “little red book” he was given to read while a prisoner. My positive opinion of the Chinese has been shaped in part by their very dignified treatment of my father as a quasi-prisoner, combined with my finishing high school in Singapore at a time when Minister-Mentor Lee Kuan Yew was just hitting his statesmanlike-stride.
9/11 is for intelligence what Sputnik was for science,
December 11, 2001
Robert David Steele
This book, the second edition, is an exact copy of the first edition with two changes: the publisher, and a new one-page Publisher’s Foreword that itemizes the six intelligence and counterintelligence failures that allowed 9/11 to happen.9/11 is for intelligence what Sputnik was for science. The across-the-board failure of clandestine intelligence (overseas), counterintelligence (at home) and our generally mediocre understanding of the real world (since we lack a properly funded, language-qualified foreign or diplomatic service), all contributed equally.
Henry Kissinger is absolutely right when he laments the lack of any serious consideration of foreign policy in recent presidential and congressional elections, and that is what 9/11 must change–this book is intended to be useful to citizens as well as government and business intelligence professionals. It lays out with great precision (see the index) both $11.6 billion dollars (out of $30 billion a year) in potential savings that could be applied to the new craft of intelligence, and it recommends with great precision all that should be in a new National Security Act of 2002.
Intelligence in the 21st Century is too important to be relegated to a chaotic cluster of secret government agencies. It is time for all citizens to take an interest in intelligence, to migrate the proven process of intelligence (there is a great deal that is good about the U.S. intelligence community) into the business sector as well as over to the sovereign states and their localities, and to demand of our elected representatives a proper accounting for the failure, and measures to prevent future failures.
Less than 2% of the $30 billion a year intelligence has been spent on terrorism–the policy and intelligence leadership over several administrations have given lip-service to the war on terrorism–and there will be no improvements, no matter how much money we pour into intelligence and counterintelligence, unless we change the fundamentals–who’s in charge, how we do it, who we do it with, and how seriously we take our responsibilities for protecting America.
