This is an update on The Oak Initiative. No doubt 2011 is going to be one of the most exciting years yet. I have a lot of exciting news about how OAK is positioned for an increasing impact on our times. A number of the Oak Board members have spent a great deal of time meeting and planning throughout the month of January. There was an extraordinary grace on these meetings for increased clarity,
strategy, and result whole new initiatives have been born. As members I want to give you more in-depth and behind the scenes information about these, but first I want to lay out the basics, and then I will share more information on each one.
300 Defenders: Seeking 300 leaders to run for public office at all levels.
Christian Information Service: Information Gathering; vetting and processing; and distribution as ‘force multipliers’.

President Ronald Reagan embraced the Team B Report and simplified the doctrine to: “We win. They lose.” This change in strategy resulted in the dissolution of the Soviet Union.
The Team B Report—Shariah, Threat to America was the same kind of exercise in competitive analysis in relation to radical Islamists who are, like the communists, seeking to impose their tyranny on the entire world. This study was done by some of our nation’s most experienced and effective intelligence professionals.
