Coincidence Theory – The belief that world historical events ‘just happen’ without the conscious intentions, planning or purpossful interventions of any powerful, contending groups of organized actors. Any other analysis, however evidence based, is easily dismissed by labeling it with the critical thought stopping, CIA-generated term of art, ‘conspiracy theory.’ This naïve, dis-empowering cognitive error has serious existential implications.

Mapping and Navigating the New 21st Century ‘Influence Landscape’
Our topic today is the public mind and current social media landscape as the ‘battlespace’ for information ‘warfighters’ – or, the internet as a minefield of the mind.
Below is a list of concepts that may not be familiar to most of us, but that are the stock-in-trade, everyday vocabulary of the influencers who are working to influence us 24/7. ‘Influencing’ is a growth industry,
Getting familiar with their terms of art seems like a first step in empowering ourselves for effective, informed, citizen resistance. Why should the Globalists have a monopoly on all the latest slick concepts? Perhaps we Planetarian Ecohumanists can co-opt and adapt them for our own self-defense. At the very least, awareness is empowerment – forewarned is forearmed.
[ Despair Not Planetarian Ecohumanists! – In our next PP Blog we’ll report on the exciting, encouraging and empowering emergence of examples of informed resistance that we’re seeing from the local, regional, national and international levels!.
Here’s a preview of coming attractions:
Stay tuned…. ]
Meanwhile, here’s the list of mind-warfare concepts:
- Advanced Propaganda Methods
- Perception Management
- Neurobiological Narrative Framing
- Influence Operations
- Social Cognition Manipulation
- Predictive Programming
- Automated Discourse Analysis
- Persistent Surveillance
- Big Data Mining
- Population Monitoring
- Strategic Multilayer Assessment
- Disruptive Technology Deployment
- Tabletop Simulations
- Irregular Warfare
- Counter Network Warfare – “It takes a network to fight a network.”
If most of these terms and concepts are unfamiliar, the following sources will help unpack and illustrate them in operation for those who are interested. The really encouraging take-home from all this is that “the information revolution can cut both ways – Information fuels empowerment on every side of an issue.”
As the Info Warfighters have discovered, “It takes a network to fight a network.”
The Seamless Web of Public-Private Integration
‘The definition of fascism is The marriage of corporation and state ‘ – Benito Mussolini
Author Naomi Wolff identifies the declaration of ’emergency powers’ as the sure sign that a government has reached ‘step ten’ in her 10 steps to fascism.

How the CIA and the NSA Made Google
by Nafeez Ahmed
INSURGE INTELLIGENCE, a new crowd-funded investigative journalism project, breaks the exclusive story of how the United States intelligence community funded, nurtured and incubated Google as part of a drive to dominate the world through control of information. Seed-funded by the NSA and CIA, Google was merely the first among a plethora of private sector start-ups co-opted by US intelligence to retain ‘information superiority.’
The origins of this ingenious strategy trace back to a secret Pentagon-sponsored group, that for the last two decades has functioned as a bridge between the US government and elites across the business, industry, finance, corporate, and media sectors. The group has allowed some of the most powerful special interests in corporate America to systematically circumvent democratic accountability and the rule of law to influence government policies, as well as public opinion in the US and around the world. The results have been catastrophic: NSA mass surveillance, a permanent state of global war, and a new initiative to transform the US military into Skynet.
Like Yasha Leviine’s Surveillance Valley and Shoshanna Zuboff’s The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, this two part series of investigative journalism on the origins of Google delineates the seamless web of connections between the defense, intelligence and big tech ‘communities’, their quest for ‘information dominance,’ and the information environment we now inhabit.
According to author Nafeez Ahmed, that quest for control – despite its roster of powerful players and institutions – has so far not been fully successful.
Ahmed concludes, “This investigation is based entirely on open source techniques, made viable largely in the context of the same information revolution that enabled Google. The investigation has been funded entirely by members of the public, through crowd-funding. And the investigation has been published and distributed outside the circuits of traditional media, precisely to make the point that in this new digital age, centralized top-down concentrations of power cannot overcome the power of people, their love of truth and justice, and their desire to share….
“And this story, like so many before it, is one small sign that the opportunities to mobilize the information revolution for the benefit of all, despite the efforts of power to hide in the shadows, are stronger than ever.”
Some Commentators worth knowing if you don’t already.
Catherine Austin Fitts
Catherine Austin Fitts is a former Wall Street investment banker and United States Assistant Secretary of Housing and Urban Development during the Presidency of George H.W. Bush. She says that during her years at the notorious bankster firm Dillon Read she learned not only about banking, but about how to construct conspiracies. On the basis of her experiences in her career, she has concluded that “conspiracies are the way the world really works.”
We had the good luck to interview her soon after her ejection from her senior post at Housing for blowing the whistle on an illegal operation relating to drugs and housing in Los Angeles. We also documented her California ‘Magic and Money Tour’ with Pacifica’s popular Caroline Casey.
In the years since then, she has become the creator of the popular and informative The Solari Report.
In her recent reports The State of Our Currencies – The End of Currencies and The Injection Fraud – It’s Not a Vaccine she clearly documents the connections between the Covid panic and the push for the Great Reset – Covid as cover for a globalist political-economic coup.
She takes seriously World Economic Forum (WEF) Founder and Executive Chairman, Klaus Schwab when he says, “The pandemic represents a rare but narrow window of opportunity to reflect, reimagine, and reset our world.”
For more on Mr. Schwab, see:
Is the real Klaus Schwab a kindly old uncle figure wishing to do good for humanity, or is he really the son of a Nazi collaborator who used slave labour and aided Nazi efforts to obtain the first atomic bomb? Johnny Vedmore investigates. By Johnny Vedmore ]
Both on the high tech WEF website and in Schwab’s co-authored book Covid 19 – The Great Reset, the agenda to ‘Build Back Better’ a post-pandemic world in which “You will own nothing and you will be happy” is fully articulated in plain sight.
In her reports, as well as in The Going Direct Reset Fitts goes on to explain – from an investment banker’s point of view – why, how and with what effects that Great Reset is designed to come about.
Her podcast, ‘2020 Annual Wrap Up: The Going Direct Reset — The Central Bankers Make Their Move with John Titus’ explains it further.
Candian commentator Polly St.George – known to viewers as AmazingPolly – is another of the wonderful crop of home-based investigative reporter truth-tellers that has recently emerged in the internet’s immune system. Here is her analysis of the Covid/Great Reset/Fourth Industrial Revolution connection and the ‘Build Back Better, Future We Want.’
“In the first half I prove that “Build Back Better” & The Great Reset is one fascist plan for total control of the world. I show you exactly where it comes from. Next, I get into why people who know about it are fighting against it. Finally I end with some hope!! We’re going to beat these people, but first we have to cut through the media lies.”
Editor’s note: Includes excellent source links in the shownotes.
The amazing researcher/writer Whitney Webb, who has produced a lot of important work in her brief career, is also a single mom. Until recently, she was based in Chile, which she has now been forced to leave because of totalitarian lockdown measures being imposed. She publishes at UnlimitedHangout.com and at Ryan Christian’s LastAmericanVagabond.com and is a frequent guest on that program.
Silicon Valley’s most influential companies, alongside healthcare companies, US intelligence contractors and the Commons Project Foundation, recently launched the Vaccination Credential Initiative. The initiative’s ambitions reach far beyond vaccines and will have major implications for civil liberties.
Joining me today is Whitney Webb, here to discuss her recent exodus from the increasingly authoritarian country of Chile, the regime change that just took place in Tanzania, as well as the 4th Industrial Revolution.
Last year, the World Economic Forum teamed up with the Russian government and global banks to run a high-profile cyberattack simulation that targeted the financial industry, an actual event that would pave the way for a “reset” of the global economy. The simulation, named Cyber Polygon, may have been more than a typical planning exercise and bears similarities to the WEF-sponsored pandemic simulation Event 201 that briefly preceded the COVID-19 crisis.

A report published last year by the WEF-Carnegie Cyber Policy Initiative calls for the merging of Wall Street banks, their regulators and intelligence agencies as necessary to confront an allegedly imminent cyber attack that will collapse the existing financial system.
The prolific James Corbett is has created a huge body of free wheeling, independent investigative journalism for over a decade in his Japan-based The Corbett Report.
The mouthpieces of the scientific establishment have identified the latest global security threat: antiscience. So what does that mean, exactly? Whatever they want it to mean, of course! This week on The Corbett Report podcast, James explores the game of Science Says that the self-appointed experts are playing with the public and outlines how that game is about to get a whole lot darker.
[See especially the last four minutes, where James performs the ‘Screw You You Tube’ song.]
So YouTube have removed my main channel. Remember when Time Magazine made You the Time Person of the Year for 2006, proclaiming that the rise of YouTube demonstrates how “You control the Information Age”? Well, I do. Join me for this special podcast from the humble birthplace of The Corbett Report as I reflect on the 14 year journey that has led me to this point and how we can proceed forward into the post-YouTube era.
Story #1: Philip Zelikow, Former Exec. Dir. Of 9/11 Commission, To Chair Covid Commission
We know Dell Bigtree’s delivery style is off-putting to some viewers, but he and his teams at The Highwire and Informed Consent Network are doing important work in investigative journalism, public education and effective litigation in support of the growing health freedom movement.
This week’s show is an Earthday special with an inspiring planetarian ecohumanist perspective from Dr. Zack Bush:
Religious Freedom Under Attack In Connecticut; Del Sits Down with Zach Bush, MD, in The Aloha State; Grab your shovel, we’re planting a Food Forest, with specialist Jim Gale!
Last week’s show is here: https://mail.google.com/mail/u/1/#inbox/
Here’s an interesting segment:
Medical reporter Sanja Gupta, broke with his network, CNN, this week to side with former CDC head, Robert Redfield, on his belief that SARS-CoV-2 was, in fact, a man-made virus that escaped from a lab in Wuhan, China. Del breaks down the troubling conflict of interest involved in the WHO’s original #Covid19 investigation in Wuhan and how the US government was actually funding the development of this potential bioweapon in China.
And finally this via the beleaguered, irrepressible truthteller Mark Crispin Miller (see above)
The latest from C.J. Hopkins, on GooTube’s censorship of his important conversation with Gunnar Kaiser, on what he’s rightly called the “COVID cult.” I sent that out, and am now sending out this grim sequel.
Grim but necessary. This rolling crackdown will not stop, unless we stand together, differences aside, and stop it.

The Big Picture – Connecting the Dots
The mosaic created by just these few sources – but supported by countless others we have archived over the past year – leads us to conclude that a relatively small network of individual and institutional players in the transnational elite are carrying out the most extensive psychological operation (psyop), biological experiment and international coup attempt in history.
The only thing that will win this information war is widespread and massive informed dissent.
As the would-be influencers’ own doctrine states, “It takes a network to fight a network.”
There are strong indications emerging that growing numbers of people around the world are waking up to that realization and joining together to resist.
As the I Ching might put it, Informed Resistance Furthers…
Don’t reset us…We’ll reset YOU….
