Plum City – (AbelDanger.net). United States Marine Field McConnell has linkeda Skinners’ Hall alderman protection racket – allegedly developed in London by the world’s largest law firm DLA Piper for the online (cloud-centric?) extortion of municipal assemblies or councils – to a decision taken by Obama associates to close the Hull House pedophile trap and protect the identities of extorted DLA Piper clients who appear to have financed the 2001 move of Boeing’s HQ from Washington and built a Chicago C5ISR base for the 9/11 attacks on New York and Washington, D.C.
(C5ISR, the military acronym for command, control, communications, computers, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance)
McConnell claims that by setting pedophile traps at schools, colleges and institutions including the university settlements of Toynbee Hall in Whitechapel London, and Hull House Chicago, the Skinners’ Hall and Livery Company mafia have used extorted aldermen to take control of major cities and are now poised to take over the state itself.

“DLA chief Knowles enjoys “brief chat” with Obama
20 October 2008
London-based Knowles met the Democratic candidate last week at a cocktail party in Chicago he attended with DLA Piper joint CEO Lee Miller, who is a longstanding Democrat supporter and activist.
Knowles said: “I had the opportunity to have a brief chat with Obama and it was a very great honour. If you take the guy as you find him, he is charismatic and engaging.”
Miller, who is based in Chicago, had a leading role in the Lawyers for Hillary campaign in the US before Obama won the Democractic nomination.
DLA Piper’s chairman of the global board George Mitchell is a former Democratic senator who, in 1996, chaired peace negotiations in Northern Ireland. He joined the firm in 2003.
A spokesperson for DLA Piper said the firm donated money to both main political parties in the US and its lawyers were free to support either organisation.
Knowles would not be drawn on where his political allegiance lay, although he sported a yellow “Obama 08” badge while posing for a photograph with the presidential candidate. But, he said: “From where I sit he is odds-on to be the next president.””

Kirkland, DLA Piper Pilot $775 Million Boeing Deal
Posted by Claire Zillman
In a deal aimed at improving its capabilities in sensory and communications technologies and information management, the Boeing Company will buy defense manufacturer Argon ST for $775 million.
Chicago-based Boeing, the world’s largest manufacturer of aircraft, will pay $34.50 per share in cash for Argon, a 41 percent premium to Argon’s Tuesday closing price of $24.43, Reuters reports.
Argon, based in Fairfax, Virginia, put itself up for sale in January. The company employs 1,000 people at operating locations in Virginia, California, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Florida, Maryland, and Texas and specializes in devices for C5ISR, the military acronym for command, control, communications, computers, combat systems, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance [used in Chicago based attack of 9/11]. Argon manufactures sensors and networks that locate and analyze electronic communications signals that can be bolted to submarines and jet fighters, according to Reuters. In fiscal year 2009, it generated $366 million in revenue, according to the companies’ joint statement announcing the deal.
Boeing’s acquisition of Argon comes as the Pentagon shifts its focus toward smaller, insurgency-style wars, which depend on intelligence-gathering and analysis, and away from larger and costlier weapons systems, The Wall Street Journal reports. Boeing’s military unit includes the manufacture of aircraft, in addition to electronics and missile defense systems. Sales in 2009 totaled $33.7 billion, according to Bloomberg.
Kirkland & Ellis represented Boeing on the deal, with the work led by partners Scott Falk, Roger Rhoten, and Terry Platis. The three were assisted by associates Michael Chu and Charles Walker. The firm has represented Boeing since 2001, when the aerospace and defense giant moved its headquarters to Chicago from Seattle.
Boeing’s in-house team consisted of senior counsel of mergers and acquisitions Edward Neveril and counsel Helen McSweeney.
Argon tapped DLA Piper partner Jason Harmon in Baltimore for the deal. Vice president and general counsel Sharon Owlett partnered with Harmon on the negotiations. DLA partner Linda Thomas and associates Michael Stein and Christopher Edwards also worked on the deal. The firm has represented Argon in a general corporate counsel capacity for about a year and a half, says Harmon.
Once the transaction is complete, Argon will become a stand-alone Boeing subsidiary and a new division of the Boeing Network & Space Systems, the companies said.
The deal is expected to close by the end of the third quarter of this year.”
“An alderman is a member of a municipal assembly or council in many jurisdictions founded upon English law. The term may be titular, denoting a high-ranking member of a borough or county council, a council member chosen by the elected members themselves rather than by popular vote, or a council member elected by voters.
The title is derived from the Old English title of ealdorman, literally meaning “elder man”, and was used by the chief nobles presiding over shires.
Similar titles exists in Scandinavian countries, such as the Swedish “Ålderman” and Danish “Olderman”, which also means “elder man” or “wise man”. It is possible that this harkens back to tribal societies, but since these often lie before written history, it is unknown how far back it goes. An Olderman could be a retired chieftain, or otherwise important member of the tribe that had retired due to old age. It has the advantage of retaining the knowledge of the old leader within a field, without challenging the new leader.
“Board of Aldermen” is the governing executive or legislative body of many cities and towns in the United States. The term is sometimes used instead of city council, but it can also refer to an executive board independent of the council, or to what is essentially an upper house of a bicameral legislature (as it was in New York City until the 20th Century). Its members are called “Alderman” or “Alderwoman”, while in the State of Wisconsin, the gender neutral term “Alderperson” is officially used. Some cities, such as Chicago, mix the two terms, thereby having a city council composed of aldermen. Some states such as Pennsylvania established aldermen in the 19th century to serve as local judges for minor infractions. Pennsylvania’s aldermen were phased out in the early 20th century. In this manner depending on the jurisdiction an alderman could have been part of the legislative or judicial local government. Boards of Aldermen are used in many rural areas of the United States as opposed to a larger city council or city commission.”
“Nonprofit world wonders how Hull House failed given executives on board
January 27, 2012
The nonprofit community is still numb from news that the Jane Addams Hull House Association is closing its doors for good today, weeks before the stated March closure date.
I’m hearing the same question pop up: How could it happen with such a heavy-weight board of trustees?
Of Hull House’s 30 board members, there are at least five financial advisers, five attorneys, including Paul Svoboda of Sidley Austin LLP [associate of Obama and his Weather Underground mentor Bernardine Dohrn], and a few CEOs, including Martin Hughes, chairman and CEO of Hub International Ltd. Prue Beidler, a former chairman of the Chicago Community Trust, also was on the board.
The Trust, which has been known to convene emergency task forces to ensure programs (like the arts) continue, says it never received a call for help from trustees.
None of the 18 board members I called this week got back to me, though I did connect with George Russell, a management consultant who says he stepped away from Hull House nine months ago when he moved out of the area.”
“Mackenzie King Slept Here: The Residences of Mackenzie King
Hull House was a settlement house in Chicago, founded in 1889 by Jane Addams and her friend Ellen Gates Starr. The settlement idea was put forward by the British economist and writer Arnold Toynbee, who urged university students to settle in financially disadvantaged areas and work with the poor to improve their conditions. Hull House was modelled after Toynbee Hall, a settlement house in England.
Hull House provided a kindergarten, library, lectures and clubs for people of all ages and interests. The staff consisted of both paid workers and volunteers, a number of whom lived at Hull House. By the time Mackenzie King moved to Chicago in 1896, this settlement house was helping more than 2,000 people a week.
King lived in Hull House for about two months from November 1896 to January 1897. He left to concentrate on his studies, but he remained a great admirer of Arnold Toynbee, Jane Addams and the settlement ideal.”
