War and Peace in the Information Age

by Kevin D. Freeman on January 16, 2017

Bill Gertz is perhaps the best and most relevant reporter covering national security issues. I count Bill as a friend. In fact, it was his work on my DoD report that brought national attention and breakthrough five years ago. Through the years, he has covered many topics regarding economic warfare and does so as much an expert as reporter. Therefore, any article he writes is worth reading and any book he writes is a must have.

Bill’s new book is iWar: War and Peace in the Information Age. In it, he exposes just how vulnerable America has become and how enemies and potential adversaries including Russia, China, North Korea, Iran, and Islamists have prepared to exploit our weaknesses. The threat is national and potentially systemic. But it is also personal and your family can be deeply impacted. Current policies have made us more vulnerable. We need to address the threats and iWar gives us a starting point to do so.

To amplify the accolades, tune into two terrific interviews with Bill. The first is from Rush Limbaugh and the audio can be heard HERE

The second is from someone I know personally and respect greatly, Ginni Thomas. She does a terrific video interview with Bill Gertz and it can be seen HERE.

What I like about Ginni’s reports is how she goes in-depth. This is a perfect example. Bill explains how the current Administration worldview ignores serious threats, because to acknowledge them would require going against the politically correct narrative. Bill calls political correctness “domestic information warfare.” One example? He exposes how the false narrative of “separation of church and state” has prevented us from dealing with the very real threat of radical supremacist Islamic ideology. Sadly, he explains that recent policies have been “to befriend our enemies and alienate our friends.”

You can know that Bill Gertz will be invited as a regular guest on Economic War Room with Kevin Freeman when it launches.

We cannot afford to ignore reality any longer. America is not invincible or permanent. We face a hostile world and must take proper precautions to defend ourselves. This includes military readiness but also a recognition of the current cyber-economic war already underway. For eight years, foreign intelligence agencies have run amok in the United States using cyber espionage. Misguided White House policies and the political narrative (that all globalization is good) have kept us at risk.

We must pray for the incoming President. We must pray for his safety. We must pray for his wisdom. We must also pray that he is surrounded by the right advisors, those who love America and are unafraid to face the truth.

Hacking Intelligence: Has the IC Been Politicized?

January 6, 2017

Several years ago, I had the opportunity to have a private meeting with a senior staff member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence (HPSCI). It took a while to get the meeting and finally only happened after I briefed the Committee Chairman who promised to look into my concerns. Basically, I was there several […]

Ten of the Top Economic Warfare Risks for 2017

December 31, 2016

Make no mistake. A cyber-economic war is already underway. Recent revelations of Russian hacking should not come as any surprise as we have covered these risks for years. It is interesting, however, to note that the current Administration is pushing a narrative that “Russia Hacked the election,” while offering very scant evidence. This was recognized […]

Post-Election Reflections: Our Hope for Trump

December 24, 2016

I’ve spent the past few weeks studying the political jockeying underway. The rush of excited transition has only been eclipsed by the vicissitudes of defeat and the accompanying hand wringing. Credit is being taken and blame is being laid. Perhaps the most interesting thing to observe has been the whole concept of the election being […]

Chaos as Economic Warfare

November 28, 2016

According to the book, Unrestricted Warfare, the end goal of economic warfare is chaos. It is accomplished through social panic, street riots and a political crisis after confidence is destroyed in the banking system, media, stock market, and power grid. This is how you defeat a superior enemy without firing a shot: “However, by using […]

Good Decisions!

November 16, 2016

The media is going nuts over President-elect Trump and his transition. It seems as if nothing is going right for the elitists who like to tell us what to think. That’s good news for America! It comes on the heels of what I believe was God’s divine intervention for America with last week’s election. We […]

Donald Trump Won an Amazing Victory: Now On To Protecting America

November 13, 2016

The Republicans are certainly celebrating the astounding victory of Donald Trump Tuesday night. Even though Secretary Clinton won the reported popular vote, President-elect Trump captured the Electoral College (with maybe 306 electoral votes) and most of the geography of the United States as illustrated in the map above. I say “illustrated” because while the example basically […]
