Community-Oriented Policing (COP) is being used with the help of religious groups, businesses, schools etc., to spy on everyone.

Community oriented policing research began in the 1970’s but wasn’t officially implemented until 1994, which means police have been spying on Americans for TWENTY TWO YEARS! The Center for Problem Oriented Policing website is a great resource to find out more about COP.

Police use homeowners associations, religious groups, property managers, businesses, schools, healthcare providers etc. to spy on everyone.

VICE News ran a story about a gang in Detroit, Michigan that was nabbed partly due to their use of social media. This of course caught my attention so I clicked the link to the indictment papers and began to have a read. I find court documents completely fascinating. It’s a weird hobby I will admit. However, I am always one of those people that likes to read more into a story, dig for background, and understand more of the peripheral players, locations and other details. Indictment papers are one of those documents that can help you do all of this. Aside from learning far more about news stories that interest you, this can be exceedingly useful if you are in law enforcement or you’re a journalist and a particular story pops up that interests you. Sometimes digging through a completely different case than one you’re currently working on can give you ideas, or help to hone some of your search skills. As well, a lot of folks taking OSINT training have a tough time finding something to apply their skills to, they can only creep on their own accounts or friends for so long before it becomes boring and repetitive.

There are cases where you can write code to kick off the whole process (such as what I did with Bin Ladin’s Bookshelf) but there are other times that you are going to want to spend some time figuring out where to target your automation. This requires a bit of critical reading, and an eye for extracting relevant pieces of information. Let’s use these indictment papers and do some quick Twitter investigating to see if we can locate other interesting people potentially associated to the folks that are locked up.

Protective Intelligence can be described as the process of gathering and assessing information about entities that may have the intention and capability of harming you, and utilizing this information to protect your assets.

As more and more individuals and corporations have begun to realize that early preventative measures are preferable to emergency reactive ones, many organizations over the last decade or so have begun to adopt a more proactive approach towards security. And once you start down the positive path of proactive prevention, you’re likely to reach some form or another of protective intelligence.

Founder and Director of Oath Keepers Stewart Rhodes urges all Oath Keeper chapters across the country to hold an Emergency Summit by state, in order to prepare for an economic collapse. ‘Assume the worst’ and formulate support teams. Food storage the most crucial.

One of the best books that cracks the code on what we are living through was written by Dutch psychiatrist Joost A. M. Meerloo about 60 years ago. Mull over the first line of his book’s forward, and you will think he is writing about today: “This book attempts to depict the strange transformation of the free human mind into an automatically responding machine – a transformation which can be brought about by some of the cultural undercurrents in our present-day society as well as by deliberate experiments in the service of a political ideology.”

That’s from “The Rape of the Mind: The Psychology of Thought Control, Menticide, and Brainwashing” (1956). There is indeed a war on the private mind, as Kevin Williamson explained in a recent National Review column. Unfortunately, too many Americans have been sleeping through most of its propaganda battles, and for a very long time. When it comes to understanding the inner workings of social psychology and political correctness, we seem to be at a loss.

Meanwhile, the power elites who now control the media, academia, and Hollywood seem to understand social psychology well enough to exploit it on a massive scale. They have engaged in psychological warfare against the private mind by inducing “collective belief formation.” There’s really nothing new here. Conditioning and nudging the masses into groupthink is a very old trick of all wannabe dictators. The bloody twentieth century is filled to the gills with examples.

In this quick video we test an AR500Armor.com armor plate against the stopping power of the 458 SOCOM. The 458 SOCOM is a big bore round with ballistics very similar to the 45-70 but designed to function in the AR-15 platform. The ammunition used in this test is 300 gr XP from Underwood Ammo, loaded with premium Lehigh Defense projectiles. You guys have probably seen the XP (better known as Extreme Penetrator) in action in the past 458 SOCOM test. This particular round is carrying almost as much energy downrange as a full power 7.62x51mm M80, lets see what happens.
