Massive San Francisco Blackout Prompts Fears of North Korean EMP Attack

It seems incredibly unlikely that the blackout means North Korean attack fears have been realized, but the concern says a great deal about the perception of recent geopolitical developments.

Mainstream Press on Wikileaks’ Vault 7: “Nothing to See Here.” Meanwhile, Big Data Leveraged to Create Deep State AI God

The formation of a Deep State-controlled digital surveillance God would be the ultimate, most apocalyptic form of dictatorship. And with ubiquitous digital devices, data-gathering services, and the Internet of Things collecting seemingly mundane information 24/7, we’re opting in to deliver the raw material needed to create it.

WikiLeaks Vault 7, Part 1: Summary of Key Revelations

With WikiLeaks unnleashing the long-awaited and mysterious “Vault 7” this morning, sleuths both amateur and professional across the globe have begun to dive in and sift through its contents. The Vault 7 release is allegedly the largest trove of documents on CIA activities ever leaked, and focuses on the CIA’s global hacking division, revealing a sort of second NSA within the CIA itself.

War has raged worldwide since long before you were born.

The War on Cash: Use this letter to contact your representatives

Here’s a letter you can personalize, modify, and email to your senators and congressional representatives. It identifies the nefarious global war on cash, and strongly urges them to fight against it. While it often feels futile to send messages like this to politicians who are overwhelmingly bought and paid for by corporations and special interest […]

Adapting To Polycentric Reality

One way to understand polycentrism is to draw a parallel with ecosystems. During polycentric times, the key to success is adaptability. In fact, it is the same story as with evolution. Size and overwhelming strength, if not managed and applied appropriately, can be a dangerous liability. It is a lesson we have learnt from the […]

Doublewood: Syria And World Order

Fetus Of A Universal War The current global situation is a live context to understanding Kissinger’s new book World Order. The events in the last decade leading to today’s crisis in the Middle East may well have prompted the writing of the book, or at least necessitated one like it. The melees in and around […]

Columbia, NC To Send “Quality of Life” Violators to Camps

This is one of those things you just have to keep reading, waiting and praying for some hint of satire. But this isn’t The Onion. “Quality of Life” laws in Columbia, North Carolina cover things like public urination and homelessness, and now, when caught in violation of these laws, you’ve got a new option other […]

Doublewood: A Weak President In A Polycentric World

The current quandary on Syria is a vivid demonstration of the dynamics of a polycentric global power configuration. In my recent email on “A Polycentric Reality”, I wrote: “During a polycentric era, alliances do not work strongly, if at all … the world has a strong non-alignment tendency. Self-interest and influence dictate foreign policies.” Our […]

Doublewood: What Snowden Revealed

Just as I was thinking that what Edward Snowden would reveal was nothing new, something shocking has come to light! He told us that we have been hacking the shit on China, while accusing China of doing it to us.  That should be a known-known, and nothing out of the ordinary in terms of our belief […]

Doublewood: Double-cross? Try Triple-cross.

When Edward Snowden was chaperoned into Hong Kong (of all places) by the English (of course), he probably did not know that this was to be the end game for him.   He will be “left hanging in the air, twisting in the wind”, as they say in that business. The English intelligence folks have feasted […]

CBS News Contradicts Itself In Latest Boston Bombing Coverage

In the CBS News article “FBI releases video of 2 Boston bombing suspects,” the video at the top tells the latest of what authorities think they know about the Boston bombing.  Which, according to host Bob Orr’s report, is that a white college-looking dude put down his backpack, then ran away after the first bomb […]

Video: Stark Warnings From A Hitler Survivor

It’s easy to get extremely emotional when it comes to wedge issues like gun control, gay marriage and teaching creationism in schools, to name only a few.  But whenever we find ourselves showing a knee-jerk response, we should immediately stop, rewind and rethink our position.  When we become emotional, chemicals rage through our brains and […]

The Drone Endgame: Legalizing Robo-Totalitarianism

The Air Force is testing new micro-drones from General Dynamics that are the size of bugs and can watch, listen to and kill their targets.  One method of deployment: Swarms of them released from the bowels a passing plane, like some Hive-Mother of The Surveillance Creature giving birth to a thin black cloud of tiny […]

DARPA: The Killer Robot Future Is Now!

With PBS’ ominously-titled “Rise of the Drones” special on NOVA, it seems like a good time to talk about what kind of bizarro oppression tech the bright minds at DARPA have been funding lately.  DARPA, or Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, is the research and development arm of the US military.  They’ve done some great […]

Awakening 2013: Curtain Coming Down On Criminal Banks?

As economic conditions continue to stagnate or begin to worsen this year, we’ll see more financial crimes bubble to the surface and a public increasingly aware of who is […]

Ten Reasons the 2012 Election Was A Joke

It’s easy to rig an election in a two-party crony capitalist system: All you do is offer two smiling candidates but only one actual vote. In this case, it’s a vote for at least 4 more years of Corporatocratic rule, becoming incrementally more totalitarian and psychopathic literally by the day. Would there have been differences, […]

NYT: Prison May Be the Next Stop on a Gold Currency Journey

Anyone reading this blog is likely already in agreement that that gold/silver prices will continue to soar – my concern is what the government will do in reaction to soaring metals prices. They’ve confiscated gold in the past under FDR (if you were dumb enough to give it up). And today, I give you the […]
