Open Letter to POTUS on Reinventing Intelligence (4 Pages, Book, & Video)



Dear Mr. President,

My prayers are with you as you navigate the complications of the Soleimani assassination. I am delighted that the Iranians are now on record to the effect that no blood revenge will be sought if US forces are removed from the Middle East. I suspect you planned it this way, and your back channels to Tehran are working as they should.

Now is the time for you to get your intelligence and counterintelligence house in order, along with the establishment of a grand strategy advisory group, a Trump studio, a truth channel, and an Open Source Agency (OSA) that becomes “the President’s own” and whose decision-support (which is what intelligence is supposed to be) can be shared with the public, Congress, the media, and foreign allies.  What you have today is not just worthless, it is toxic and constantly sabotaging your Presidency.

Enclosed is a compilation of my work over the past thirty years during which CIA has fought me every step of the way, while sabotaging successful military Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) efforts such as those of General Peter Schoomaker, then CINCSOC in Tampa.  It is intended for the distribution recipients to study, not as a burden on you.

On the next two pages are four graphics, which are all you need to make the decision: demand of OMB – which has twice approved an OSA at $2B a year – that this is immediately implemented.  It is my hope that you will invite Bill Binney and me to visit with you for a few minutes – perhaps Tucker Carlson and Lou Dobbs as well – because I believe that the OSA (along with #UNRIG election reform) will assure you’re winning the mother of all landslides in 2020.

I respectfully emphasize that OSINT, because it is strictly open, is of enormous political and economic value to you – it does domestic analysis and it does comparative trade. If you allow me to build this as I envision (memo in the book, fourth graphic), Open Source Everything Engineering (OSEE) will allow you to rebuild America at 20% the cost of the failed Western proprietary and financialization model, and then export OSEE globally, which is the perfect US response to the Chinese One Belt One Road strategic campaign.

Very respectfully,
Robert David Steele

EPIC FULL COLOR 8.5″ x 11″

From 1989 to 2019 — for 30 years — the author, himself a former CIA spy and Marine Corps intelligence officer as well as the senior civilian responsible for creating the Marine Corps Intelligence Activity (MCIA), has sought to reform U.S. Intelligence.

The secret world costs the U.S. taxpayer over $100 billion a year, and yet, according to General Tony Zinni, USMC (then Commanding General of the U.S. Central Command engaged in two wars and twelve joint task for actions) provides “at best” 4% of what a major commander needs (to which one can add, and nothing for everyone else.

I know from direct experience that we process 1% of what we collect which is 1% of what is published which is 1% of what is written which is 1% of what is known. The reality is that decisions are made every day at every level that is bought and paid for, not based on evidence, and not in the public interest.

This book of readings provides all that is required to reform U.S. intelligence so that it might honor the Constitution and serve the President, the Cabinet, the Congress, and the public.

There is both evolution and repetition from one piece to the next. Highlights include the 1989 call for reform by the Commandant of the Marine Corps (ghost-written by the author); 1993 talking points delivered to the Director of Central Intelligence; a 2004 standing room only lecture to the Department of State; a 2007 standing room only lecture to Amazon; a 2009 briefing to the Undersecretary of Defense for Intelligence; the 2013 seminal chapter on the evolving craft of intelligence leaving behind secret war and strategic secret analysis to focus on creating Smart Nations full of citizen intelligence minutemen; a 2014 indictment of defense intelligence hand-delivered to the home of the Secretary of Defense; and the 2017 Memorandum for the President of the United States of America.

Everything in this book of readings is common sense and in the public interest. The fact that these ideas have been censored, marginalized, and actively repressed for 30 years tells us all we need to know about the relationship of the US secret intelligence community to the Deep State.

President Donald Trump appears to understand that radical change is required. The author — and his NSA counterpart William Binney — have stated publicly that we should be moving toward a reduction of the secret intelligence budget by up to 70%; consolidation of the surviving pieces in a restored Central Intelligence Agency (abolishing the Office of the Director of National Intelligence), and the creation of an Open Source Agency to serve as “the President’s Own” decision-support element with the added advantage that its findings are never secret and can always be shared with Congress and the public.

We do not lack for intelligence in the United States of America. We lack integrity.

  1. Begging for a job is one thing. Begging for a job working for an Aderall addicted paedohile career criminal beholden to Israel is quite another. A bit like applying for a job on the Titanic only less admirable.

    • Like a Trumpian #Cuckservative.

      They like to watch/cheer Spanky screw their “wives” (professed values & ideals)… Then clean up the mess afterwards.

  2. Smedley Butler exposed the simple, effective way to end the War Racket.

    The only way.

    (Also was #whistleblower on the Fascist “Business Plot” to “Seize The White House”.
    See the McCormack-Dickstein Hearings…
    But don’t expect a movie on it anytime soon from “Liberal Hollywood”.)

  3. Where to begin; you seem to have good intentions Robert, but taking only 9/11 and JFK’s asassination to account, surely you must realize there is never going to be any deviation from the secret government’s agenda.
    They may be forced to adjust their methods and timetable, but their power is unassailable. And as Cronkite used to say; “and that’s the way it is!”

    • It’s too late to reverse course. Zionist and other organized criminals control our government, control both political party’s it’s why Trump’s connections to Organized Crime was never exposed by Democrats or the media which is nothing more than propaganda owned by the same organized criminals. America is a failing falling nation a rapidly degrading culture and society the breakdown of law and order has begun it started at the top of our subverted corrupt lawless traitorous out-of-control government long ago. Our government isn’t legitimate anymore including law enforcement, legal, court and justice systems. Let them continue pushing it’s necessary. Suffering and hard times will wake people up something will rise from the ashes. Chaos and suffering is necessary so is failure because it needs to fail. Nothing lasts forever not even America it’s OK it needs to happen. Embrace the acceleration do not get angry do not do anything would be used against all of us. Civil War is not the answer it’s also too late to use the second amendment for its original intended purpose. I won’t be fighting anyone for anyone there’s nothing worth fighting for nothing to preserve.

  4. Again, I am sounding like a broken record, pro-Zionist, controlled & bought Trump will confer with his Zionist masters first, who will tell him ‘avoid Steele like the plague; he is anti-Zionist, pro 9/11 disclosure, anti-Netanyahu, anti-War, anti-corruption, he wants the destruction of Israel, and to boot, he cannot be blackmailed. Don’t give him the time of day or validate him in any manner, shape or form’. Once this reality sinks in, I hope RDS can affect America positively, at the exclusion of ‘anything’ Trump. It seems to me that RDS had given Trump a deadline of Dec. 31, 2019 to clean house of dual citizens and restore the integrity of the Constitution. That date has come & gone, and here we are. The notion that Trump is playing 5D chess backdoor negotiations with Iran is wishful thinking, at best. Trump intentionally murdered Soleimani, the ISIS slayer, to bolster his faltering campaign. An egomaniac of the first order such as Trump should never be trusted or be associated with. But, this, too, will fall on deaf ears. The pull must be irresistible for RDS.

    • Democrats are purposely not giving us a viable option to Trump. We’re not being given a choice although we haven’t had a choice in decades both party’s are corrupt they choose the corrupt compromised candidates we get vote for. We’ve been divided on purpose because a divided population will never unite to defeat a common enemy politically or otherwise should that enemy be the government or a foreign power controls our government.

  5. We’re living with the results of the most effectively indoctrinated brainwashed population in our history not exclusive to a political party or ideology. We could use a truly independent unrestrained media. Left or right the media is nothing more than propaganda they’re all on the same team same as Democrats and Republicans are all on the same team and it ain’t ours. President Trump is a corrupt compromised puppet connected to organized crime, Israel is the center of global organized crime, Zionism is terrorism the United States and Israel own no moral high ground. President Trump is a liar a fraud and a conman we’re the victims of the greatest most successful bait and switch scheme in history. President Trump is a psychopath he’s a direct and imminent threat to America and our freedoms will stab his supporters and America in the back when he has nothing to lose. Democrats are nothing more than controlled opposition. What’s happening in Virginia is for President Trump’s benefit, I believe it’s also a test, it feels like a setup like people are walking into an ambush and President Red Flag will exploit it by delivering the traitorous criminal police state the gun control they want.

    • America is being led down the garden path to the slaughter house with false Messiahs cheering along the way.

  6. If Sycophanty is used as a Strategy to access the attention of a Bloviated Blow Hard Egotist such as Pump and Dump Trump, before he destroys the infrastructure of the Home Land of the Human Property (known as “Citizens”) of the USA Corporation, then I suppose it could work. Unfortunately, terms such as “These things are self evident…” or “God” or anything else that does not fit the British Empirical Positivist model of Pleasure and Pain versus Good and Evil, will not get through and only Physical Occupation of Ground (Boots On The Ground) by masses of disciplined Passive Resisters will work. Not only has Trump lived his life with THEM, he has “achieved” the American Dream. He has followed a Materialistic course in life that now measures his Pleasure by the number of Hamburger he eats or the variety of his degraded orgasms – just look at the way that his wife looks at him. This is how the actions of materialists become incomprehensible to those of a more Spiritual or Metaphysical bent.
