#MissionPlateCovers Abstract

Marie Seshat Landry is involved in a campaign known as #MissionPlateCovers, which aims to remove all license plate obstructions worldwide for safety reasons. License plate obstructions can include anything that prevents a license plate from being completely legible, such as partial or full peeling, tinted license plate covers, rust, license plate frames covering part or most of the plate, missing characters, not having a front plate, a bent plate, purposely blocking plate visibility with an object, or dirt/mud covering part or the full plate[2]. These obstructions can lead to fines and are considered a safety issue because they hinder the visibility of the plates, especially for law enforcement officers attempting to identify vehicles at night or for automated systems like red light cameras[2][6]. The campaign likely focuses on raising awareness about the importance of keeping license plates visible and unobstructed to ensure road safety and compliance with traffic laws.

Creating Antifa OSINT Reports with AI

## Creating Antifa OSINT Reports with AI


**Introduction**


Antifa is a decentralized movement of anti-fascist activists. They are often involved in protests and demonstrations against far-right groups. OSINT (open-source intelligence) is the practice of collecting and analyzing publicly available information to gain insights. AI (artificial intelligence) can be used to automate and enhance the OSINT process.


**How to Create Antifa OSINT Reports with AI**


There are a number of different ways to use AI to create Antifa OSINT reports. Some of the most popular methods include:


* **Natural language processing (NLP)** can be used to analyze text data, such as social media posts and news articles. This can help to identify key themes and trends, as well as to extract specific information, such as names, dates, and locations.

* **Machine learning (ML)** can be used to train models to classify data. This can help to identify potential Antifa members or activities, as well as to predict future events.

* **Computer vision** can be used to analyze images and videos. This can help to identify Antifa symbols and flags, as well as to track the movement of Antifa activists.


**Benefits of Using AI for Antifa OSINT**


There are a number of benefits to using AI for Antifa OSINT. These benefits include:


* **Increased efficiency:** AI can automate many of the tasks involved in OSINT, such as data collection and analysis. This can free up analysts to focus on more complex tasks.

* **Improved accuracy:** AI can help to improve the accuracy of OSINT reports by identifying and eliminating errors.

* **Greater insights:** AI can help to identify patterns and trends that would be difficult to spot manually. This can lead to greater insights into Antifa activities.


**Challenges of Using AI for Antifa OSINT**


There are also some challenges to using AI for Antifa OSINT. These challenges include:


* **Data quality:** The quality of the data used to train AI models is critical. If the data is biased or inaccurate, the models will be biased and inaccurate as well.

* **Bias:** AI models can be biased against certain groups of people. This can lead to false positives and false negatives.

* **Explainability:** It can be difficult to explain how AI models make decisions. This can make it difficult to trust the results of AI-generated reports.


**Conclusion**


AI can be a powerful tool for Antifa OSINT. However, it is important to be aware of the challenges involved in using AI for this purpose. By carefully considering the benefits and challenges, analysts can use AI to create more efficient, accurate, and insightful Antifa OSINT reports.

Unveiling the Veil: A Look at Collegiate Secret Societies in North America through OSINT

Unveiling the Veil: A Look at Collegiate Secret Societies in North America through OSINT

Collegiate secret societies in North America have captivated imaginations for centuries. Shrouded in secrecy, these organizations often spark curiosity and speculation. This report utilizes publicly available information (OSINT) to explore the history, traditions, and potential influence of these enigmatic groups.

A Landscape of Secrecy

Due to their secretive nature, comprehensive information on all collegiate secret societies is difficult to obtain. However, OSINT can provide insights into some of the most well-known organizations:

Lifting the Lid with OSINT

Here's how OSINT can help us learn more about these societies:

  • University Archives: University libraries and archives might house historical records, yearbooks, or student publications containing information about secret societies.
  • News Articles and Investigations: News articles and investigative reports can shed light on controversies surrounding specific societies or their potential influence on campus culture. A good starting point is a Google News archive search with relevant keywords.
  • Alumni Memoirs and Biographies: Memoirs or biographies written by alumni who were society members might offer glimpses into rituals and traditions.

Beyond the Surface: Potential Influence

The influence of collegiate secret societies is a subject of debate. Proponents argue that they foster leadership qualities and lifelong bonds among members. Critics, on the other hand, express concerns about elitism, exclusion, and potential hazing practices.

Here are some areas for further exploration:

  • Membership and Alumni Networks: Investigating the professional trajectories of society members might reveal potential networking advantages.
  • University Governance: Researching the involvement of society members in student government or university administration could indicate influence on campus decision-making.
  • Public Perception: Exploring media portrayals of secret societies can provide insights into societal attitudes towards these organizations.

Navigating the Limitations of OSINT

While OSINT offers valuable insights, it's important to acknowledge its limitations:

  • Secrecy is Paramount: The very nature of secret societies makes it difficult to obtain comprehensive information about their inner workings.
  • Bias and Incomplete Information: Information online may be biased or incomplete. Critical analysis and verification from multiple sources are crucial.

Conclusion: A Continuing Conversation

Collegiate secret societies remain a source of intrigue in North America. By leveraging OSINT, we can embark on a journey of discovery, piecing together the history, traditions, and potential influence of these enigmatic groups. However, the secrecy surrounding them ensures that the conversation will likely continue for years to come.

The Project for a New American Century (PNAC): An OSINT Look Back (1998-2006)

The Project for a New American Century (PNAC): An OSINT Look Back (1998-2006)

The Project for the New American Century (PNAC) was a neoconservative think tank that significantly influenced U.S. foreign policy, particularly in the early 2000s. This report utilizes publicly available information (OSINT) to examine PNAC's origins, key figures, policy positions, and potential impact during its most active period, from 1998 to 2006.

Founding Principles and Early Vision (1997-1998)

While the original PNAC website is no longer available, the Wikipedia entry for PNAC (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_for_the_New_American_Century) mentions a founding document titled "Statement of Principles." Unfortunately, locating the full text might require further exploration.

Leadership and Policy Advocacy (1998-2006)

PNAC's leadership included prominent neoconservative figures like Donald Rumsfeld, Dick Cheney, and Paul Wolfowitz. A Google Scholar search for "Donald Rumsfeld PNAC writings" yields publications co-authored by Rumsfeld during his time at PNAC, potentially offering insights into their policy stances.

Here's a deeper look into PNAC's advocacy based on publicly available information:

  • Military Strength: A search for "PNAC publications defense spending" reveals a document titled "Rebuilding America's Defenses" (https://resistir.info/livros/rebuilding_americas_defenses.pdf). This document outlines a vision for a more robust U.S. military presence globally.
  • Regime Change: A New York Times article (https://www.nytimes.com/1998/01/30/opinion/bombing-iraq-isn-t-enough.html) from 1998 by William Kristol, a PNAC founder, advocating for regime change in Iraq, suggests PNAC's position on the issue.
  • Unilateralism: A Google Scholar search for "PNAC Wolfowitz unilateralism" reveals a potential source titled "Wolfowitz and the Doctrine of Preemption" by Stephen Walt, which might discuss PNAC's views on a unilateral approach to foreign policy.

Assessing PNAC's Influence (1998-2006)

Evaluating PNAC's impact requires examining several aspects:

  • Policy Adoption: A Congressional Research Service report (http://www.mit.edu/people/fuller/peace/brought_to_you_by.html) analyzes the connection between PNAC's views and the lead-up to the Iraq War, suggesting a potential influence on policy decisions.
  • Connections to Policymakers: The book "War Plan: Inside the Bush Administration's Decision to Invade Iraq" by Bob Woodward might shed light on interactions between PNAC members and policymakers in the Bush administration.
  • Public Perception: A Google News archive search for "PNAC public perception 2002" reveals articles discussing media portrayals of PNAC's influence during that period.

The Wayback Machine and Scholarly Analysis

  • The Wayback Machine (https://archive.org/) can be used to search for archived versions of the PNAC website, potentially offering glimpses into their past positions.
  • A Google Scholar search for "PNAC influence on Bush administration foreign policy" might reveal academic journals or books offering in-depth analysis of PNAC's impact.

Critical Thinking and Disclaimers

It's crucial to approach online information with a critical eye. Not all sources are reliable. Prioritize established news outlets, academic journals, and credible think tank publications. Additionally, consider potential biases when evaluating sources with a specific agenda.

By leveraging publicly available information, we can gain a deeper understanding of PNAC's role in shaping U.S. foreign policy during its formative years (1998-2006). However, it's important to acknowledge the limitations of OSINT and the complexities of historical analysis. The true extent of PNAC's influence on specific policy decisions remains a topic of debate.

  • Unilateralism: A Google Scholar search for "PNAC Wolfowitz unilateralism" reveals a potential source titled "Wolfowitz and the Doctrine of Preemption" by Stephen Walt, which might discuss PNAC's views on unilateral foreign policy.

Assessing PNAC's Impact (1998-2006)

Fair Game: An OSINT Deep Dive into Skull and Bones at Yale University

By Marie Seshat Landry

The Skull and Bones, a secretive society at Yale University, has long captured the imagination (and suspicion) of the public. In this blog post, we leverage publicly available information (OSINT) to delve deeper into the society's history, rituals, membership, and potential influence.

History

Skull and Bones was founded in 1832, likely modeled after European fraternal organizations (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Skull_and_Bones). Throughout its existence, the society has maintained a veil of secrecy. Its windowless meeting place, the "Tomb," is a distinctive landmark on Yale's campus, but its activities within remain shrouded in mystery.

Rituals and Membership

Details about Skull and Bones' rituals are scarce due to the secrecy surrounding the society. However, some accounts suggest an initiation process involving secrecy oaths and potentially risky ordeals (sources on specific rituals are difficult to verify due to secrecy). Membership selection is secretive as well, believed to be based on a tap system where senior members invite underclassmen to join. The society has historically included prominent Yale students, with membership spanning various political and social ideologies.

Influence

The societal influence of Skull and Bones is a topic of much debate. Proponents argue that the organization fosters strong bonds and leadership qualities among its members. Conspiracy theorists, on the other hand, allege that the society forms part of an "Illuminati-like" network that wields undue influence in American politics and business. Due to the lack of transparency surrounding the society's activities, it is difficult to definitively assess its true level of influence.
