The NSA’s illegal warrantless wiretapping programming. The building of the massive NSA data center in Utah to permanently store copies of all digital communication sent around the world. The UK government’s “Communications Data Bill” to monitor emails, instant messages and other personal information. What was dismissed as crazy conspiracy theory just over a decade ago has become, in this post-9/11 era, the all-too-familiar stuff of newspaper headlines and talking head reportage.
The Sentient World Simulation’s aim, according to its creator, is to be a “continuously running, continually updated mirror model of the real world that can be used to predict and evaluate future events and courses of action.” In practical terms that equates to a computer simulation of the planet complete with billions of “nodes” representing every person on the earth.
In this episode of our EyeOpener Report James Corbett presents the Sentient World Simulation and a significant peek behind the curtain at what those who are really running our society want: complete control over every facet of our lives achieved.
In mid-2012, in the wake of the ratification of ACTA and the proposal in the US of bills like SOPA and PIPA, in an age where the war on terror is gradually morphing into a cyberwar and database hacks, password leaks and identity thefts are reported on breathlessly, it is difficult to imagine the promise that the very idea of the Internet once aroused in the public. Just 20 years ago, in the age of the much-vaunted “Information Superhighway,” people could pontificate with a straight face on the potential for online communities to give rise to a Jeffersonian revolution and spawn a new flowering of civic participation.
Quaint as such optimism might seem to a jaundiced modern eye, to some extent that promised revolution has arrived in the birth of an alternative media that has already begun to eclipse outdated forms of information distribution. Once confined to the information accessible from local libraries, daily newspapers, and what was commonly known as “the idiot box,” the general public is now able to instantaneously access vast amounts of information on even the most obscure topics with merely a few keystrokes and clicks of the mouse. But given the increasingly draconian measures that are being proposed to block, track, control, monitor and censor communications on the Internet, it is almost impossible to be as optimistic about the future of this technology as we once were.
In this episode of our EyeOpener Report James Corbett presents currently proposed measures to block, track, control, monitor and censor communications on the Internet, and our responsibility in determining the future of the web.
Google Inc. is back in the news this week, with a fresh round of headlines about the search giant and government censorship. Ironically–though perhaps not surprisingly for the corporate media–the stories are not about Google’s admitted but classified relationship with government agencies like the NSA, though. Instead, they portray the internet company as a protagonist sticking up for users’ privacy rights against governments that are increasingly interested in blocking, scrubbing or banning links, search results, and online videos that those governments want to suppress.
As a PR exercise, Google’s latest report is brilliantly executed and timed, deflecting some of the negative press that the company has received in recent weeks over the ongoing Street View debacle, even as it allows news outlets to portray the company as a valiant defender of users’ privacy against increasingly invasive governments.
In this episode of our EyeOpener Report James Corbett presents Google’s past, its shareholders, its own repeated violations and abuses of users’ privacy, its executives’ personal philosophies and the unsettling statements that they have made about the very concept of privacy time and again over the years.
Earlier this week Wired Magazine released a background check of Steve Jobs conducted by the Department of Defense in 1988. The background check highlights Jobs’ use of LSD in the 1970s and his fears of blackmail or kidnapping due to his substantial wealth. The check was part of a security clearance investigation conducted by the DoD during Jobs’ tenure at Pixar, an investigation that was first revealed earlier this year.
Precisely what Steve Jobs needed security clearance for has not yet been revealed, but that Jobs did have some relationship with the Department of Defense will come as no surprise to those who know the long and intimate history between the US military, the US intelligence apparatus, and Silicon Valley.
In this episode of our EyeOpener Report James Corbett presents the latest revelations about Steve Jobs’ security clearance with the Department of Defense, the history and examples of the disturbing government connections, stockholdings, regulations and infiltrations when it comes to technology companies, and how the Department of Defense, the NSA, the Department of Homeland Security, In-Q-Tel and other agencies are quietly opening doors and writing checks for the technology industry’s chosen few.
In this episode of our EyeOpener Report James Corbett presents the unprecedented lengths that the government has gone to suppress the Sibel Edmonds Story, and the publishing industry’s active collusion with the FBI, the CIA, and other government agencies to either “allow” or “disallow” the publication of books by certain whistleblowers. Corbett discusses new technologies and self-publishing enabling whistleblowers and truth-tellers to circumvent the entire government/media/NGO conglomerate that has dominated the entire institutional infrastructure of “approved whistleblowing,” and the opportunity now available to the public to familiarize themselves with the information that the government has been fighting for years to suppress in any and every way possible.
In this episode of our EyeOpener Report James Corbett looks at the book publishing industry controlled by a few media moguls, examines how the ease with which political and governmental bodies have been able to block the publication of books that are uncomfortable to the Washington elite has greatly increased, while books that fulfill a social function of rallying the populace around the flag and supporting the dominant narratives of our time are given copious attention by a fawning lapdog press, and talks about the self-publishing industry as not only a viable alternative for suppressed and dangerous works, but often the only outlet for books that truly challenge the status quo.

To the residents of Baluchistan it must be puzzling that this remote, sparsely populated region in Pakistan’s southwest is increasingly gaining the attention of far-flung corners of the globe, from Beijing to Moscow to Tel Aviv to Washington. A rugged, arid region dominated by the ethnic minority Baluch tribes, Baluchistan straddles parts of Iran, Pakistan and Afghanistan. Its rugged, mountainous landscape has historically sheltered it from the various imperial, regional and national powers that have claimed authority over it, from the Persians and Indo-Parthians thousands of years ago to Iran and Pakistan in more recent times. Now, however, the region is suddenly gaining attention on the geopolitical stage as a strategic area in one of the most hotly-contested regions of the globe. Along with this newfound attention has come the sudden attention of human rights groups and even Congressmen who now claim to be deeply concerned with the struggle for independence of the Baluch peoples.
This is our EyeOpener Report by James Corbett, presenting Baluchistan, Minerals, Pipelines and terrorists in the Imperial Great Game of think tanks, policy “experts,” human rights groups and Washington insiders calling for support of terror groups in the region.

The knowledge that Israeli-connected companies and intelligence agents have been involved in detailed and elaborate spying operations in the US is of course nothing new. The phenomenon has been painstakingly documented over the years by numerous journalists and sources. Indeed, the documented cases of Israeli spying on their supposed ally — the self-same American government that is supplying them with $3 billion in grants each year — are nearly too numerous to document.
This is our EyeOpener Report by James Corbett, presenting a brief history of Israeli spying on the US which spans a number of decades and into the heart of the most sensitive data and material in the American government, the lack of action by the US Congress, and the absence of real reportage by the US media when it comes to this consistent and ongoing betrayal.
Few in the general public have heard much, if anything at all, about the relatively obscure corner of academia known as bioethics. First emerging as an academic discipline in the late 1960s, bioethics concerns itself with the ethical questions raised by advancing knowledge and technological sophistication in biology, medicine, and the life sciences.
When the discussions of the bioethics community eventually filter down to the level of popular discourse, they often seem like bizarre, science fiction-like scenarios about improbable possibilities.
This is our EyeOpener Report by James Corbett, exploring the dangers inherent in entrusting some of the most important discussions about the life, death and health of humanity in the hands of a priestly academic class toiling in relative obscurity to produce position papers for government advisory boards.
