Special Update: Dallas Meme Update

For several weeks now, I have been telling you about the odd way that Dallas, Texas has been cropping up in our data as a “hot” word…particularly in the work done by Chris McCleary over at the www.nationaldreamcenter.com.

There, using the technology that Grady developed for our www.nostdracodeus.com. members of the public have been contributing to something I cooked up several years back called “The DreamBase” – a database of dreams.

As frequently mentioned, in Chris’ unique application of the technology, instead of looking at general language on the Internet for hints about the future, his DreamBots look at the linguistics within dreams.  Those linguistics scream Dallas.

And we’re in the process of adapting that to generalized language searches.

Break: Full Stop

Now the new development out this morning:

Judicial Watch has just posted an alert: “Imminent Terrorist Attack Warning By Feds on US Border

A couple of key paragraphs here:

Specifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few days ago.

Intelligence officials have picked up radio talk and chatter indicating that the terrorist groups are going to “carry out an attack on the border,” according to one JW source.  “It’s coming very soon,” according to this high-level source, who clearly identified the groups planning the plots as “ISIS and Al Qaeda.” An attack is so imminent that the commanding general at Ft. Bliss, the U.S. Army post in El Paso, is being briefed, another source confirms. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) did not respond to multiple inquiries from Judicial Watch, both telephonic and in writing, about this information.

While it would be horrific to see America’s southern border attacked from (and effectively by) Mexico – a fulfillment of our long-term reporting of the Low-Intensity-Conflict [LIC] with Mexico going hot – there are multiple reasons to expect that the “attack” on the border may not be precisely on the border but in a major population center where maximum body count and/or media impact could be developed.

Tactically, it would be an interesting move, too:  Dallas is much closer to Heartland America than El Paso.  Yet, there’s a large enough “pipeline” that runs drugs into Dallas and a illegal population trail to points north, that such an attack would have much more psychological impact than would be the case of an attack on El Paso or any other border town.

Let’s not forget to mention that an attack on another large city (such as San Antonio with a much higher population of ethnics and illegals) would likely be seen as an attack on Mexicans in the US.  ISIS (or any other enemy) wouldn’t want that.  They’d be going for shock value.

An attack on the city that has shown up so prominently in the DreamBase  analysis would be a smashing blow to the American ego.  Terrorism is part action, part psychology.

There’s not much else to contribute to the discussion, other than to say word frequency analysis is proving that it does, indeed, have predictive abilities, as the NDC Project August headlines have proven to our statistical satisfaction.

Tomorrow, we get into the specific recruiting mechanisms online by groups like ISIS and explain how social media and what I’ve termed the “electronic extended family” plays a key role in recruiting young people.  Most nowadays have “rolled over” to texting as extended families and develop deep emotion relationships with online personas.  Texting is beyond parenting and thus the generation gap widens.

I might go so far as to predict that in the wake of such events, licensing of the Internet might come, but that’d be a stretch.  We do, however, watch the grains of data piling up on one side of the scale.

Social media – when viewed as a family values replacement protocol is a terrorism-recruiting wet dream. 

Coming to a world near you.
