In the relentless war against the deep state, every facet of American society becomes a battleground — from elections and media to health, military, surveillance, law, courts, and even Hollywood. On a recent episode of ‘Right Now with Ann Vandersteel,’ the veil is lifted, offering an unfiltered view of this daily struggle. But who is the true adversary, and how can victory be achieved in this ongoing war for control?
Colonel John Mills, a seasoned warrior in the realms of the Department of Defense (DoD) and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) cybersecurity, technology, and critical infrastructure programs, steps into the spotlight. His expertise encompasses the intricacies of train-and-equip efforts, Foreign Military Sales (FMS), foreign military financing, ITAR, and international military education and training. Moreover, Mills plays a pivotal role in building public-private defense and technology industrial base partnerships, including his instrumental work in establishing the DoD’s Development Innovation Unit (DIU) in Silicon Valley.
Before joining The SPECTRUM Group (TSG), Colonel Mills served as the Director for Cybersecurity Policy, Strategy, and International Affairs in the Office of the Secretary of Defense. His impactful work extended to creating and implementing the first DoD and intelligence community (IC) scorecarding initiative. This groundbreaking initiative fortified the nation’s cybersecurity readiness and enhanced multidomain responses to threat actors and hostile nations.
Colonel Mills’ 33-year U.S. Army and Army Reserves career reached its zenith as he served as a senior liaison between DHS and DoD for complex homeland security operations. His influence extended globally, where he helped establish and advise foreign national military and security forces in conflict zones such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, Bosnia, South Korea, and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Mills’ roles spanned joint and inter-agency operations, psychological operations (PSYOP), intelligence activities, special operations, strategic planning, and public affairs.
Beyond the battlefield, Colonel Mills continues to contribute to the future of cybersecurity. His role as an adjunct assistant professor for the Cybersecurity Law and Policy program at the University of Maryland, Global Campus, reflects a commitment to shaping the next generation of cybersecurity leaders.
The episode of ‘Right Now with Ann Vandersteel’ featuring Col. John Mills unveils not just the complexities of the deep state but also the strategic roadmap for countering its influence. The war is real, but with leaders like Mills, there’s hope for those willing to confront and dismantle the forces working against the fabric of the nation.
