Reality bats last — the US military has not been designed in the context of a Grand Strategy, nor has it been designed with any attention at all to Global Reality.
The US military is too slow, too heavy, too expensive, too complex, and spread too thin to be effective — it cannot deter, defend, or defeat. From the F-35 in the US Air Force to the USS Gerald Ford in the US Navy to the varied cancelled and cumbersome systems of the US Army, the US military is good for one thing and one thing only: enriching the military-industrial complex and the banks behind that complex.
GLOBAL REALITY comes in three slices: the military threat, civil-military operating conditions, and logistics choke-points. While the US has only two peer competitors (China and Russia), it is incapable of winning a war against lesser enemies for lack of integrity in the planning and programming of US Government capabilities, not only in the military, but in the civilian functions including diplomacy and development as well as commerce.
This short monograph, based on the original and never since replicated Marine Corps Study, Overview of Planning and Programming Factors for Expeditionary Operations in the Third World (Marine Corps Combat Development Command, March 1990), for which the author was the chief architect and study director, is — in combination with a Grand Strategy — a non-negotiable starting point for rebuilding America’s ability to engage the world toward peace and prosperity for all.
The standard aviation day is hot and humid, not warm and not humid as the US military now assumes. This means that aircraft designed to these flawed assumptions can carry half as much half as far and loiter half as long. This is just one of many examples from this overview of Global Reality.
Donald Trump Junior has responded to the concerns of many. “Trump will not resign,” he says. We take him at his word. There is also evidence now that Donald Trump, our President-Elect, is beginning to understand the forces arrayed against him, forces that the sitting President, Barack Obama, is enabling. Wayne Madsen writes:
President-elect Trump is facing a two-pronged attack by his opponents. One, led by entrenched neo-con bureaucrats, including former Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency director Michael Hayden, former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, and Bush family loyalists are seeking to call the shots on who Trump appoints to senior national security, intelligence, foreign policy, and defense positions in his administration. … The second front arrayed against Trump is from Soros-funded political groups and media. This second line of attack is a propaganda war, utilizing hundreds of anti-Trump newspapers, web sites, and broadcasters, that will seek to undermine public confidence in the Trump administration from its outset.
Such are the games that the elites and their two-party tyranny sock-puppets play with our blood, treasure, and spirit. This is the counter-counter-coup. Donald Trump appears incapable of listening to those of us who know who to defeat this blatant well-funded assault on his Presidency.
Steele, Robert. RIGGED: Twelve Ways the Two-Party Tyranny Rigs the US Electoral System to Block Out Independents, Small Parties, and 70% of the Eligible Voters, Amazon Kindle, October 23, 2016, 31 pages, $0.99.
The US electoral system is totally rigged — in twelve different ways (false flag operations and subversive inciting of violence is a thirteenth way). Barack Obama is wrong when he denies this point, and both CNN and Fox News are in hypocritical complicit betrayal of the public trust when they refuse to be serious about all of this. I was the first to go public with a comprehensive denunciation rooted in what I learned during my brief run as one of three candidates accepted by the Reform Party for its presidential nomination race in 2012. In 2011 my six minute briefing to the Occupy working group on electoral reform made the front page of Reddit and went viral; I also wrote an article, “How I Tested the Boundaries of the Two-Party Tyranny” as published in Reality Sandwich in 2012, and in the same year briefed Hackers on Planet Earth — they know something about the vulnerability of electronic voting machines.
Steele, Robert. DEPLORABLES RISING! Trump Can Win With a Debt Jubilee and Electoral Reform, Amazon Kindle, October 11, 2016, 9 pages, $0.99.
Billy Bush provided the decade-old illicit audio of Donald Trump to the Bush Crime Family, and they provided it to the Clinton Crime Family. There will be more such revelations as the financial political thieves in high places make their final push to destroy the one serious challenger to the reptilian cabal led by the Rothschilds and controlling both the banks and the two-party “establishment” that puts the US Government in the service of legalized criminal enterprises — what Matt Taibbi has so ably labeled “Griftopia.”
With less than a month to go, there are five specific things Donald Trump can do to begin the hard work of restoring democracy to the USA.
Steele, Robert. Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) Done Right: An indictment of 25 years of expensive passive failure, Amazon Kindle, September 25, 2016, 53 pages, $0.99.
This briefing has been funded and approved for delivery in its present form, in April 2016, to the military, police, and national intelligence services of Denmark. It was also presented in Norway, but less formally. As NATO and a number of countries “re-think” Open Source Intelligence (OSINT), this briefing and the related white paper, should help focus on the essentials that have been neglected for the past quarter century.
It is nothing less than an indictment of 25 years of expensive passive failure associated with the mis-direction of OSINT away from active human sourcing as I originally envisioned, toward passive online searching that is, as one study recently concluded, over 80% absolute garbage.
Steele, Robert. The Ultimate Hack: Resilient Villages, Smart Cities, Prosperous Nations at Peace — and Unlimited Clean Water, Amazon Kindle, September 23, 2016 22 pages, $0.99.
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) are not achievable using the prevailing paradigm of donors, intermediaries, and industrial-era proprietary technologies and costs.
The SDG goals can be achieved at a one-time cost per person of $500 if the United Nations (UN) will embrace Open Source Everything Engineering (OSEE) as the central method.
OSEE includes nine major categories – four are known to the UN (Open Data, Open Decision-Support, Open Governance, Open Software), five are largely ignored and their potential not understood (Open Health, Open Infrastructure, Open Manufacturing, Open Provisioning, Open Space).
This briefing brings together twenty-two graphics with accompanying text, representing forty years work drawing on the minds of thousands of others. Put bluntly: we can achieve peace and prosperity for all at one tenth the cost of what we are now paying for war and poverty benefiting only the 1% — the elites considering all of us unrepentent deplorables — farm animals and feral beasts of no account.
Steele, Robert. Reflections on The People’s Army, The Constitution, & Grand Strategy – What Nobody – Least of All Clinton or Trump – Wants to Talk About…, Amazon Kindle, September 21, 2016 11 pages, $0.99.
The People’s Army – the Continental Army rooted in home-spun militias – was formed and fought and won a war before the U.S. Constitution was written and signed in 1787. The Constitution – and the Republic – exist because the People’s Army, the Continental Army led by George Washington – leveraged the twin advantages of a righteous cause and home court to eject what was then the greatest imperial power on the planet. Of the 55 men attending the Constitutional Convention, at least 29 served in the Continental Army, most of them in positions of command. Understanding the relationship between the people from whom the early militias were drawn, the Army, and the Constitution, is essential to evaluating where we fall short today.
Steele, Robert. Clinton Collapses, Is Biden Ready? Seven Specifics for an October Surprise…, Amazon Kindle, September 14, 2015 updated from February 8, 2016, 21 pages, $0.99.
UPDATE OF 12 SEPTEMBER 2016
Hillary Clinton has had a stroke — she is not suffering from pneumonia and her body double is easily spotted by the combination of 50 pounds less weight and the greater distance she keeps from the public she is being shown off to. The DNC is in an emergency session — Joe Biden will probably be the new nominee and pick his own VP. As I have suggested for some time, Donald Trump is certain to win UNLESS Joe Biden will listen to a former Jesuit altar boy and embrace the idea that at this point in time and space, God wants him to clean up the two-party tyranny and restore evidence-based honest governance to the USA.
If the Democratic Party wants to win the White House it has to make two grand bargains: (read more at Amazon).

Steele, Robert. The Orlando Mass Casualty Event: A False Flag Drama, Atrocity, or Hybrid?, Amazon Paperback, June 24, 2016, 46 pages, $6.39.
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:
A. Context: Who Benefits?
B. Why Orlando, Why A Gay Club at Closing Time?
C. Evidence of Multiple Shooters
D. Media-Based Evidence of Complicity & Cover-Up
E. Government-Based Evidence of Cover-Up
F. Omar Mateen’s Personal or Family History
G. Omar Mateen’s Psychological Profile
H. Pulse Club as a Stage Set
I. Medical Characteristics of Alleged or Real Victims
J. Contextual Complicity of Government
KEY QUESTION: Did anyone including Omar Mateen actually die?
Steele, Robert. Democracy Riots! We are all black now – deal with it!, Amazon Kindle, March 22, 2016, 24 pages, 99 cents.
I was a white Latino minor multi-millionaire. I lost my business to US Government security apparatchiks that could not compute 7,500 foreign contacts cheerfully declared, and I have been unemployed – a stint in Afghanistan and ten nights as a Lowe’s receiving clerk not-with-standing – since 1 January 2008. I can testify that the real unemployment rate is 23%, and in my demographic, as well as those of people of color, single moms, and new college graduates, it is closer to 40%. I have no salary, no pension, no savings, and no property. At several points I have had to worry about being able to repair a borrowed car, and at one point I did not have the $30 to repair the zipper on my one usable winter coat. Now I am a black homeless person and for the first time I begin to understand their centuries of abuse and deprivation at the hands of “the Establishment.”
We are all black now. That is the central unstated premise of this electoral cycle.
Steele, Robert. REVOLUTION!: How Donald Trump Can Win and Govern by Championing Electoral Reform, a Coalition Cabinet, a Balanced Budget, and a Constitutional Convention in 2018, Amazon Kindle, March 16, 2016, 111 pages, 99 cents.
We are all crazy, all black, and all angry. 2016 is the culminating year in which the two-party tyranny reaps as it has sown — Donald Trump on the right — winning by the rules — and Bernie Sanders on the left — losing by the rules — represent the 99% who have been disenfranchised by the legalization of grand larceny.
The Constitution, Green, Libertarian, and Reform parties are serious parties with serious people. He cannot win without them, and without a full leavening of Independents and No Party Preference (NPP) voters. He also cannot govern without breaking the back of the two-party tyranny within Congress. An Electoral Reform Act of 2016 would enable the election of 20-30 other party and Independent members to the seats being vacated, and restore Article 1 of the Constitution.
This white paper is a starting point for those who wish to achieve a non-violent revolution using legal means and the candidacy of Donald Trump. A virtual Constitutional Convention in Texas; an unemployment workshop in New York; and an Electoral Reform Summit in California, should all be on the table for May.
Steele, Robert. Can John Kasich Win by Championing Electoral Reform?: WIth NYT Endorsement and Indictment Looming for Hillary Clinton…a Game Plan, Amazon Kindle, January 31, 2016, 15 pages, 99 cents.
The endorsement of John Kasich by the New York Times — and the varied reasons for disqualifying Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio — open the way for the only candidate that has been a Governor and created a balanced budget to first win the Republican nomination and then win over all others, most of whom are not Democratic party loyalists.
The looming indictment of Hillary Clinton for ordering, in writing, the by-passing of security protocols for thousands of classified messages, at least 22 of which are in the sensitive compartmented / special access domain, opens the way for a serious national conversation leading toward a sanity nomination on the right and a justice accommodation on the left — it’s time we restore integrity to our electoral process and give true inclusive democracy a chance
Steele, Robert. Bloomberg in 2016: Restoring Integrity to the US Electoral Process & the US Government, Economy, & Society, Amazon Kindle, January 15, 2016, 14 pages, 99 cents.
2016 is the year in which an Independent candidate could win. Of the three viable alternatives — Mike Bloomberg, Jim Webb, and Jon Huntsman — two have either self-destructed (Jim Webb with his pastor campaign manager incapable of original thoughts) or elected to stick with prestigious high-paying jobs and the delusion that forcing candidates to take a pledge to be serious has any meaning.
Mike Bloomberg has an opportunity to first restore integrity to the electoral process in America, and to then govern on the basis of a coalition that embraces all voices, respects all citizens, and is rooted in evidence-based decision support. This memorandum outlines seven specific initiatives that Mike Bloomberg can take starting now (in January 2016).
Steele, Robert. A Fantasy: On The Seventh Day: How a Burning Babe and Lynn Rothschild Saved Democracy in America, Amazon Kindle, December 18, 2015, 7 pages, 99 cents.
All of the preconditions for revolution exist in the USA today, from a concentration of wealth combined with 23% unemployment to a government that has lost all legitimacy in the eyes of the people because of the blatant manner in which a two-party tyranny has sold out to 40-odd billionaires. Chris Hedges (Empire of Illusion) and Matt Taibbi (Griftopia) nailed it. All we are missing is a precipitant (such as a soccer mom torching herself on Capitol Hill) and a couple of billionaires that “get” the insanity of a 100% corrupt government making their wealth very vulnerable to pitchforks on the mansions and angry veterans putting 50 caliber bullets into their Lear Jets as they land or take off. This white paper offers a seven day plan for restoring American democracy while treating the elite to the most graceful Truth & Reconciliation process they might have prayed for.
Steele, Robert. Sanders for President as an Independent? The Game Plan, Amazon Kindle, December 18, 2015, 12 pages, 99 cents.
The integrity of the American electoral process matters more than any single candidate. Now that the Democratic National Committee has made it clear it is merely an extension of the Hillary Clinton campaign, the time has come for all citizens to see the value of demanding an Electoral Reform Act of 2016 such that both an Independent candidate for president — with a coalition cabinet and a balanced budget announced in advance — and a sufficiency of Members promising not to caucus with either wing of the two-party tyranny — are possible. The primary purpose of this book is not to promote a specific candidate, but rather the possibility of a Second American Revolution, a non-violent revolution that restores the power of the public over a government grown too big, too corrupt, too evil, for words. Open Power is possible now, in 2016. Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren and Angus King are among the Senators who have the power to sponsor the Electoral Reform Act of 2016. The questions this book puts before the public is these: if not Bernie, who? If not now, when?
Steele, Robert. An American Grand Strategy: Evidence-Based, Affordable, Balanced, Flexible, Amazon Kindle, October 31, 2015. 64 pages. 99 cents.
Surprisingly and most helpful, by creating a grand strategy at four levels of analysis (strategic, operational, tactical, and technical) in which four stove-pipes are considered side by side (White House & Congress; Intelligence & Covert Actions; Diplomacy & Development; Army, Air Force, Navy & Marines) a process has been identified that could remove Congressional opposition to long-needed reforms — a process that is not only job and revenue neutral from district to district, but because of its overall coherence, enables both the reconstitution of the home front, and the creation of a strong military that is affordable, balanced, and flexible.
Steele, Robert. Beyond Data Monitoring – Achieving the Sustainability Development Goals Through Intelligence (Decision-Support): Integrating Holistic Analytics, True Cost Economics, and Open Source Everything, Amazon Kindle, February 24, 2015. 42 pages. 99 cents.
Beyond data monitoring – and a reliance on modest donor promises, many of which will fail to materialize – there is a brilliant world of holistic analytics, true cost economics, and open source everything engineering. This approach – pro-active and centered on ethical evidence-based decision-support – could – if implemented within the UN with a fraction of the promised funding for the SDGs – mobilize vastly greater resources; speed implementation of the seventeen SDGs, and therefore support the mission of the UN and its Member States in a manner much more effective than now possible.
