    Robert David Steele on Open Source Intelligence

    in Self Help

    Robert David Steele, curator of Phi Beta Iota, former CIA clandestine services cases officer and creator of the Marine Corps Intelligence Activity, talks about Open Source Intelligence, a movement that he started in 1988, and his recent book, the Open Source Everything Manifesto.


    Steele found that over 90% of the intelligence gathered by the structured intelligence community is available from public sources.  He realized that embracing the open source community allows for greater exchange of information and more efficient use of taxpayer funds.


    The Open Source provides a platform that is affordable, interoperable, and scalable.  Steele contends that secrets are not the same as knowledge, and that the Open Source Approach will help to curtail government waste relating to the desire to collection for the sake of collection.


    Through his discussion with Michael Ostrolenk  Steele explains how using common sense and open source techniques, the U.S. Government can adopt proven methods in the field by Steele over 25 years ago to have a leaner, more effective, more efficient, and more transparent intelligence Community.

    City Council Overules Stupid Voters & Open-Source Initiative

    in News

    With over 75% approval, voters in the Vallejo California, population around 120,000, enacted Measure C in 2011 which established a tax of 10% on medical marijuana products. Although it would seem obvious that voters would not approve a tax for businesses that they thought shouldn’t be allowed to operate, the Vallejo City Council thought the voters were too stupid to understand the issue and enacted a moratorium on medical marijuana businesses in 2013.


     


    In February, several of the operating medical marijuana dispensaries attempted to pay almost $50,000 in taxes but were turned away with a city employee telling them that “As of January 13, 2015, the City of Vallejo City Council directed city staff to no longer accept medical marijuana monthly tax returns or any tax payments related to medical marijuana.”


     


    Attorney James Anthony represents the 11 medical marijuana dispensaries that were operating before enactment of the 2013 moratorium. As the show’s first guest, Mr. Anthony will explain how it came to pass that the city is refusing to collect an estimated $5 million in annual taxes and what the collectives will do to force them to take their money.


     


    Combining content and lessons learned from previous attempts to place a marijuana legalization initiative on the California ballot, the Marijuana Control, Legalization and Revenue Act (MCLR) was started by Americans for Policy Reform as an open-source, grassroots project. The goal was to bring everyone together on the "same page" for the next legalization initiative.


     


    John Lee is one of the chief organizers of MCLR and as the show’s second guest will explain the new initiative and how they are committed to drafting and passing an initiative that reflects the will of people.
