Counterintelligence, Privacy, and Tech
Kit Perez is the co-author of Basics of Resistance: The Practical Freedomista, Book I, a primer on resistance methods. She’s also a counterintelligence and statement analyst, as well as a longtime political writer on national security, intelligence and privacy/tech topics. She holds a BA in Counterintelligence, a Masters in Intelligence Studies, and specializes in deception detection, HUMINT, and digital surveillance issues. She has written two academic papers on an original concept called MXINT, a hybrid form of intelligence that merges aircraft system data with ‘soft’ data gained from personal interaction with airlines; MXINT predicts when and what maintenance issues can be expected on a commercial aircraft. An advanced form of MXINT is in development and use today.
After nearly a decade in Seattle, Kit packed up and walked away from her corporate life, choosing instead to move to the American Redoubt. Living in the mountains of western Montana, Kit and her gunsmith husband have a small homestead, where they raise a variety of farm animals, grow their own food, and work toward total sustainability.
Kit composes for piano and violin in her spare time.
There's a misconception about group infiltration. It's simple, and it goes like this: "Infiltration is something that happens to other groups, because they are stupid. It won't happen to us, because we are smart." A variation on this involves those who say, "I know...read more
Intelligence is an often-misunderstood field, and counterintelligence perhaps even more so. Understanding what they are, however -- and how they're different -- can help you and your group not only have an actionable plan but also guard against things like...read more
What is intelligence? Answering that question is slightly more difficult than you might think. You'll often hear the word used in regard to information of all types, and from all kinds of sources. You'll see the term tossed around in social media groups, at rallies,...read more
For those of us who do a lot of information collection (which, by the way, should include you), our list of resources is critical. It's hard to collect information if you don't know where to find it, after all. Over time, you'll amass avenues, channels, websites, and...read more
This is part 3 of a short series on relocation, such as to the Redoubt or Appalachia, so you might want to check out the first two parts here and here. At this point, we're going to assume you picked a spot, and managed to successfully fund your move and show up in...read more
Yesterday we looked at the idea of relocating to a different location, and whether that's something you've already been thinking about or are just starting to wake up to, there are a lot of good reasons to do so. Once you’ve decided to take the plunge and move,...read more
The concept of strategic relocation is not new, but it's recently become more popular, as more and more liberty-loving folks get tired of being crammed into crowded public transportation or spending hours on the road in the daily snail-pace commute. For many, the...read more
We've been talking about how to understand your own core motivators, and how those can be used against you. I offered an example of how someone who needs to feel important, for example, can be encouraged to give away information simply by pressing the right buttons....read more
I recently wrote an article on core motivators, and a commenter mentioned that they'd like to learn more about the self-inspection part of the subject. How does it work? What does it really mean to know yourself to the point where you can actually understand and...read more
