#2490: Doctor/Marine as Running Mates – Fabians’ Sexual 8(a) Blackmail – Serco’s White-House Red-Switch Nukes
1. AD ASSERTS THAT DR. BEN CARSON AND U.S. MARINE JAMES WEBB ARE, REALISTICALLY, THE ONLY PROSPECTIVE RUNNING MATES capable of dismantling security threats from ongoing man-in-the-middle attacks on the Navy Marine Corps Intranet – outsourced by the Clinton administration to HP (cf. Carly Fiorina) just six days before the bombing of the USS Cole in Aden Harbour which killed 17 sailors on October 12, 2000.
2. AD ASSERTS THAT IN 1998, FORMER UK PRIME MINISTER TONY BLAIR’S FABIANS INFILTRATED SEXUAL BLACKMAILERS IN THE SBA 8(A) LOAN PROGRAM to build a register of “personal facts, biological and mental, normal and morbid” as a “real guide as to those persons who are most fit, or most unfit to carry on the race” after 9/11.
3. AD ASSERTS THAT SERCO’S MENTORS HAVE CUT LINKS BETWEEN THE WHITE HOUSE DEFENSE RED SWITCH NETWORK AND THE PRESIDENT’S NUCLEAR football and given launch authority for mutually-assured destruction to HP’s 8(a) protégée companies.
United States Marine Field McConnell (http://www.abeldanger.net/2010/01/field-mcconnell-bio.html) invites Abel Danger researchers and users to send him images or information – per examples below – which can lead to a proof by contradiction of the assertions above.
“The nuclear football (also known as the atomic football, the president’s emergency satchel, the button, the black box, or just the football) is a briefcase, the contents of which are to be used by the President of the United States to authorize a nuclear attack while away from fixed command centers, such as the White House Situation Room. It functions as a mobile hub in the strategic defense system of the United States.
According to a Washington Post article, the president is always accompanied by a military aide carrying a “football” with launch codes for nuclear weapons. The football is a metal Zero Halliburton briefcase carried in a black leather “jacket”. The package weighs around 45 pounds (20 kilograms). A small antenna protrudes from the bag near the handle.
In his book Breaking Cover, Bill Gulley, the former director of the White House Military Office, wrote:
There are four things in the Football. The Black Book containing the retaliatory options, a book listing classified site locations, a manila folder with eight or ten pages stapled together giving a description of procedures for the Emergency Alert System, and a three-by-five inch card with authentication codes. The Black Book was about 9 by 12 inches and had 75 loose-leaf pages printed in black and red. The book with classified site locations was about the same size as the Black Book, and was black. It contained information on sites around the country where the president could be taken in an emergency.”
“Building a State-of-the-Practice Data Communications Network
To create a state-of-the-practice data communications network required Serco to engineer different solutions for each of the AFSCN’s unique locations. Each ground station around the world had to be surveyed in order to develop detailed installation plans, project support agreements and testing plans. Furthermore, to assure communications reliability between the ground station and the operational control nodes, Serco also had to conduct a complete circuit testing exercise. After completing the survey, Serco’s team continued with their due diligence, for developing and implementing a state-of-the-practice solution, by conducting circuit, system verification and integration, installation and checkout testing for each of the ground stations, including those located at Diego Garcia, in British Indian Ocean Territory, the Royal Air Force Base in Oakhanger, England and the Anderson AFB, in Guam
In developing this enhanced voice and data communications network, Serco’s team engineered and implemented an ATM backbone and secure voice system for each of the AFSCN ground stations. The installed network was based on a Wide Area Network (WAN) architecture utilizing IP based network capabilities and proprietary secure communication technologies such as KG-75s, KG-84S and KIV-7s. In addition, Serco ensured Defense Red Switch Network connectivity and operations throughout the AFSCN [Thereby allowing Serco 8(a) protégés to override POTUS in decision to launch or not to launch nuclear weapons].”
“The REAL Hastert Scandal: Pedophilia, Drug Money and Blackmail

October 13, 2015
In May of this year a federal grand jury indicted former Speaker of the House John Dennis Hastert. The charges: that he had “structured” withdrawals of over $950,000 from various bank accounts to skirt bank reporting laws and that he had lied to federal agents about these withdrawals. According to the indictment the withdrawals were part of a bid to pay $3.5 million in blackmail to cover up “past misconduct” from his time as a high school teacher in Illinois.
The story seemed perfect fodder for the tabloid corporate press. It featured a former high-ranking politician, blackmail and intrigue, and just enough details about Hastert’s former life as a teacher and wrestling coach to suggest that the “past misconduct” referred to a salacious scandal of sexual abuse of a minor. But for some reason the story faded from the headlines almost as quickly as it appeared. And now that Hastert’s legal team has announced that they are seeking a plea deal with prosecutors in order to avoid a trial, it seems the story is likely to disappear completely.
But a series of revelations from FBI whistleblowers reveal that this story is just the tip of a very seedy iceberg, one that implicates Hastert, his top aide, other Congress members and government officials in a criminal network involved in sexual intrigue, foreign espionage, blackmail, and drug money.
In 2002 Gilbert Graham, a Special Agent in the Washington Field Office of the FBI, blew the whistle on an illegal surveillance program being conducted out of the Bureau’s Washington headquarters. According to the unclassified version of his complaint, obtained by the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition in 2007, Graham alleged violations of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act “in conducting electronic surveillance as a subterfuge to acquire evidence of criminal activity.”
These allegations were backed up by a former FBI Counterintelligence Specialist in the Washington Field Office, who told the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition: “…you are looking at covering up massive public corruption and espionage cases; to top that off you have major violations of FISA by the FBI Washington Field Office and HQ targeting these cases. Everyone involved has motive to cover up these reports and prevent investigation and public disclosure.”
According to FBI whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, revealing the details of this program for the first time in a series of podcasts in the wake of the Hastert revelations, this illegal surveillance program — dubbed COINTELPRO II by the agents who were asked to implement it — dates back to the mid-1990s, when the Clinton White House was being rocked by a series of sex scandals.
In the mid-1990s, still bogged down with the Paula Jones Scandal, a case that refused to quickly go away, while preparing for another sexual scandal, the Monica Lewinsky case, Bill Clinton and his top White House team put together a political retaliation plan meant to retaliate against and then neutralize the Republican Party and key elected Republican officials. The main objective of the plan was to:
Collect major dirt on key Republican officials
Use the information to blackmail those Republicans as a means to prevent impeachment
Strategically release the cases of those who did not back down by blackmail if the impeachment process were to proceed
[SOURCE: Probable Cause Podcast #23 | BoilingFrogsPost.com]
The plan, implemented with the help of Clinton appointees Janet Reno and Louis Freeh, was remarkably effective.
In December 1998, on the eve of the House debate on Clinton’s impeachment hearings, Washington was rocked by House Speaker-elect Bob Livingston’s sudden announcement of marital infidelity and resignation from the House. As the Chicago Tribune reported at the time:
The speaker-elect said those investigating him were trying to find “indiscretions which may be exploitable against me and my party on the eve of the upcoming historic vote on impeachment.”
Livingston did not give details of any affairs and said he was admitting them only because he had learned that unnamed “individuals” had been working with news organizations.
At the time, Larry Flynt claimed credit for forcing Livingston’s resignation, saying that he had an audiotape of the Congressman engaged in “raunchy” phone sex. This audiotape, according to Edmonds, came directly from the FBI’s counterintelligence unit and the COINTELPRO II program.
Livingston’s resignation was only the latest in a string of high-profile Republican sex scandals that involved information “leaked” to the media by unnamed sources in the wake of the Lewinsky scandal. Representatives Henry Hyde, Helen Chenoweth, and Dan Burton‘s adulterous relationships were all outed in the run up to impeachment, with Burton admitting to fathering a child out of wedlock.
Livingston was replaced as Speaker by Dennis Hastert, a Congressman no stranger to scandal himself. In 2005, Vanity Fair drew on FBI insiders, FEC filings, sworn testimony and other documents to report on some of the information the Bureau dug up on Hastert. This included FBI wiretaps capturing Turkish agents boasting of tens of thousands of dollars in payments they had used to assure Hastert’s flip flop on the US Congress’ Armenian genocide resolution.
Hastert Spokesman: This is all nonsense. It’s not being reported by the mainstream press because there’s no factual evidence. The reporter does not have a transcript of any wiretap conversations that we know of, and even if he did it’s preposterous. The speaker does not have any connections to American Turkish interests.
[SOURCE: Kill The Messenger]
Shortly after leaving the House in 2007, Hastert registered as a foreign agent lobbying on the hill for the Turkish government.
But the dirt on Hastert and his associates went much deeper than this.
Information on Hastert’s nefarious and illegal sexual activities between 1996 and 2002 is far more explosive than the activities “exposed” in the recent so-called revelations. Hastert’s sexual activities were videotaped and thoroughly recorded not only by two US government agencies, but also by a foreign network — a criminal foreign network — headquartered in Chicago and involved in NATO/CIA Gladio operations.
Between 1996 and 2002, Dennis Hastert engaged in illegal fundraising activities in Illinois. These activities included receiving and laundering foreign sourced cash funds, some of them drug money.
Several other high-level elected officials were also involved in these illegal activities. Representative Dan Burton was a key figure. The mayor of Chicago, the governor of Illinois, and at least three high-level staff members were involved as well.
[SOURCE: Probable Cause Podcast #20 | BoilingFrogsPost.com]
Hastert’s “nefarious and illegal sexual activities” have been broached in media reports going back at least a decade, since the time that Hastert, as Speaker of the House, helped cover up the Mark Foley scandal involving the sexual abuse of male House pages. Not only has Hastert’s sexual relationship with his live-in chief of staff, Scott Palmer, been repeatedly hinted at in articles by the likes of former US Senate Staffer Laurence O’Donnell, but as far back as 2006 investigative reporter Wayne Madsen was tying the Foley scandal and Hastert into Tom DeLay, Jack Abramoff, Southeast Asia, and child sex prostitution.
“State Department sources have also reported that the visits of Hastert and other congressional leaders and staff members to certain Southeast Asian nations and the Northern Marianas should come under the scrutiny of the House Ethics Committee, now officially investigating ‘Pagegate.’ The Northern Marianas became infamous in the scandals involving Tom DeLay and Jack Abramoff because of the presence in the US slave labor territory of Asian children being used as prostitutes. Conveniently, Foley co-chaired the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children, which would have had authority to investigate charges of child prostitution in the Northern Marianas,” Madsen reported, adding: “Hastert visited Vietnam, along with Palmer, in April of this year and spent three days in the country. Hastert, along with Illinois GOP Rep. Ray LaHood, canceled a visit to Thailand and Vietnam in January 2006. Hastert was also in Thailand in January 2002.”
This lines up with the information that FBI insiders have been trying to blow the whistle on for years.
PROBABLE CAUSE (different clip again) 22:04 – 23:26
Since 1996 the FBI has had tons of information on Hastert which was gathered in Chicago by the FBI’s Chicago Field Office. The incriminating criminal evidence in those files range from bribery, extortion, fraud, money laundering and embezzlement, to sexual crimes against minors and participation in foreign-operated drug operations.
Since 1997 the FBI has had much hard evidence on Hastert gathered by the FBI’s Washington Field Office. The documented deeds range from espionage to foreign bribery.
But that’s not all. The FBI also has had hard data on Hastert’s sexual violations outside the United States. The involved countries include Vietnam, Thailand, Turkey and Morocco, among others. This also included sexual favors as means of foreign bribery. Interestingly, the CIA had been documenting those sexual activities for many years, and not only on Hastert but on many others; elected and appointed.
[SOURCE: Probable Cause Podcast #24 | BoilingFrogsPost.com]
So why has this information never surfaced before, and why is one tiny sliver of information that might provide a window into this story emerging now, nearly a decade since Hastert left office and over a decade since the FBI wound up its surveillance operation?
Realizing that the FBI’s new dragnet was scooping up information on elected officials and political appointees across the board, not just Presidential enemies, and with FBI agents increasingly outraged over the activities they were documenting, the White House, the DOJ and the FBI sought a way to put a stop to the flow of embarrassing information.
In 1999, the FBI COINTELPRO II program was transferred from the FBI’s counterintelligence unit to the criminal unit, ostensibly to pursue prosecutions. But as the program had been founded on FISA violations, FBI agents were informed that the information couldn’t be used in a courtroom. It was this attempt to sweep these cases under the rug that infuriated many of the lower-level agents and caused Gilbert Graham to file his complaint in 2002.
But by then, it was already too late. The FBI’s surveillance was messy and involved too many agents who could potentially blow the whistle. In the wake of 9/11, the internal surveillance program was shifted from the Bureau to the NSA, and it was not long before those surveillance powers were being directed against politicians and officials in yet another attempt to gather dirt and find blackmail-worthy material on these individuals.
As NSA whistleblower Russell Tice told The Corbett Report in 2013, he had first-hand knowledge of this surveillance, which included politicians, judges, military personnel, and even the future President of the United States.
In short, this scandal is too deep, too dark, and covers too many people from both sides of the political aisle for it to ever proceed in public. If it were to be exposed it would uncover a tale of surveillance, scandal, drug money, child prostitution and blackmail that could blow up all over Washington and make Watergate look like a minor footnote in the history of political scandal.
Knowing this, it comes as little surprise that Hastert’s legal team, already having been granted two extensions to continue negotiating a plea deal with prosecutors, pushed back the deadline for pre-trial motions to October 15th, when a trial date is expected to be set. All specifics about the case are being kept under seal since, as the AP reports, “Judge Thomas Durkin agreed to a request by the U.S. Attorney’s Office to keep materials secret, with prosecutors citing law enforcement and privacy interests.”
If these accusations of the FBI insiders of an illegal, White House-approved surveillance dragnet are true, and if the scandal does envelop several high-ranking politicians and appointed officials in both the Democrat and Republican parties, it is not difficult to imagine that Hastert’s lawyers could graymail prosecutors, asking for evidence that the government could never turn over without opening up the whole scandal.
And so we arrive at the present stalemate, where it looks increasingly likely that the case will be plea bargained away and further inquiry will be stopped before the case can be blown wide open.
Given the deafening silence on the accusations around this deeper scandal from the media, the evident refusal of the Department of Justice to look into the complaints of Graham and other FBI whistleblowers, and, of course, the reluctance of the government to even acknowledge the claims, the task falls to everyday motivated citizens to raise awareness of this story and create the space for more insiders to come forward with their knowledge of these cases.

“Serco contract to process Obamacare applications renewed for a year
03, 2014 3:15 pm
By Chuck Raasch
Current, former Serco workers describe long days with nothing to do. Congressmen want answers.
WASHINGTON • The federal government has renewed for another year the contract of Serco Inc., whose Affordable Care Act application processing facility in Wentzville was hit by whistleblower allegations that workers there had little to do.
The new taxpayer-paid contract, which began July 1, will be worth about $98 million. The first-year contract was worth about $114 million, according to figures supplied Thursday by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), which oversees the contract.
“We have an option to renew the contract on an annual basis and we determined that Serco met the terms and conditions of the contract during the base period,” said Aaron Albright, a spokesman for CMS. The contract was renewed on June 27.
The federal government, under the auspices of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, gave a five-year, $1.2 billion contract last year to Serco Inc., a British based company with American headquarters in northern Virginia. The contract has one-year renewal options.
Serco and CMS had anticipated as many as 6 million paper applications to come in under the new health care law, commonly called Obamacare, but only about 300,000 came in, CMS acknowledged last month.
Whistleblowers said employees sometimes slept or played board games for lack of work, and members of Missouri’s congressional delegation demanded inquiries. CMS Director Marilyn Tavenner responded in letters to the delegation last month, but did not address the whistleblower allegations.
“We continuously monitor the work Serco is doing regarding the number of employees it has, including staff allocation by job function, and we are confident that the balance is appropriate,” Tavenner said in a letter to Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo.
Blunt complained then that Tavenner’s response was inadequate, and he accused CMS of “withholding details about the way it spends taxpayers’ hard-earned dollars.”
Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer, R-St. Eilzabeth, who received the same written response from Tavenner, called it “vague and woefully incomplete.”
On Thursday, Blunt said that he was “very concerned [President Barack Obama’s] administration extended this contract in light of the questions that have been raised by whistleblowers who work at Serco processing facilities.
“My colleagues and I have asked a number of critical questions that the administration has failed to adequately answer,” he added in an email. “I am going to press CMS to explain what criteria was weighed and how it was evaluated in making this decision.”
CMS spokesman Albright said Thursday that “Serco has been involved with the processing of paper applications, verifying information, resolving conflicts of information and calling consumers to obtain missing information or necessary documentations for those who applied via paper applications or online.
“Serco continues to receive mail that requires processing,” he said. “Serco employees are currently involved in working with consumers on any remaining conflict resolutions.”
CMS acknowledged last month that the same computer problems that had frustrated individual enrollees in the Affordable Care Act last fall also disrupted the anticipated workflow at the Serco facilities last fall.”
“Ben Carson: Obamacare worst thing ‘since slavery’
By Sean Sullivan October 11, 2013
Carson: Obamacare is ‘worst thing … since slavery’
Fox news contributor Ben Carson compared the Affordable Care Act to slavery at the Values Voters’ Summit Friday, saying, “It was never about health care; it was about control.” (Sarah Parnass/The Washington Post)”
Dr. Ben Carson, a rising star in conservative circles, on Friday compared President Obama’s health-care law to slavery.
“You know Obamacare is really I think the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery,” Carson, who is African American, said Friday in remarks at the Values Voter Summit in Washington. “And it is in a way, it is slavery in a way, because it is making all of us subservient to the government, and it was never about health care. It was about control.”
“The Fabian Society founded the London School of Economics and Political Science in 1895 “for the betterment of society,” now one of the leading institutions in the world, an incubator of influential politicians, economists, journalists, prime ministers and liberal billionaires.
Today, the society functions primarily as a think tank and is one of 15 socialist societies affiliated with the Labour Party. Similar societies exist in Australia (the Australian Fabian Society), in Canada (the Douglas-Coldwell Foundation and the now disbanded League for Social Reconstruction), in Sicily (Sicilian Fabian Society) and in New Zealand.”
“[Fabian co-founder] Henry Havelock Ellis, known as Havelock Ellis (2 February 1859 – 8 July 1939), was an English physician, writer, Progressive intellectual and social reformer who studied human sexuality. He was co-author of the first medical textbook in English on homosexuality in 1897, and also published works on a variety of sexual practices and inclinations, including transgender psychology. He is credited with introducing the notions of narcissism and autoeroticism, later adopted by psychoanalysis. He served as president of the Galton Institute and, like many intellectuals of his era, supported eugenics. …. Ellis was a supporter of eugenics, in line with many others of that era. He served as vice-president to the Eugenics Education Society and wrote on the subject, among others, in The Task of Social Hygiene:
Eventually, it seems evident, a general system, whether private or public, whereby all personal facts, biological and mental, normal and morbid, are duly and systematically registered, must become inevitable if we are to have a real guide as to those persons who are most fit, or most unfit to carry on the race.
The superficially sympathetic man flings a coin to the beggar; the more deeply sympathetic man builds an almshouse for him so he need no longer beg; but perhaps the most radically sympathetic of all is the man who arranges that the beggar shall not be born.
Ellis resigned from his position of Fellow of the Eugenics Society over their stance on sterilization in January 1931.”
“Anthony Charles Lynton Blair (born 6 May 1953) is a British Labour Party politician, who served as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1997 to 2007. He now runs a consultancy business and performs charitable work. Blair was the Member of Parliament (MP) for Sedgefield from 1983 to 2007 and Leader of the Labour Party from 1994 to 2007. Blair led Labour to a landslide victory in the 1997 general election, winning 418 seats, the most the party has ever held. The party went on to win two more elections under his leadership: in 2001, in which it won another landslide victory, and in 2005, with a reduced majority.
Blair was elected Labour Party leader in the leadership election of July 1994, following the sudden death of his predecessor, John Smith. Under Blair’s leadership, the party used the phrase “New Labour” to distance it from previous Labour policies and its opposition to the traditional conception of socialism. Blair declared support for a new conception that he referred to as “social-ism”, involving politics that recognised individuals as socially interdependent, and advocated social justice, cohesion, equal worth of each citizen, and equal opportunity. Critics of Blair denounced him for having the Labour Party abandon genuine socialism and accepting capitalism.
Supporters, including the party’s public opinion pollster Philip Gould, stated that after four consecutive general election defeats, Labour had to demonstrate that it had made a decisive break from its left-wing past, in order to win again.
In May 1997, the Labour Party won a landslide general election victory, the largest in its history, allowing the 43-year-old Blair to become the youngest Prime Minister since Lord Liverpool in 1812. He attained early personal popularity, receiving a 93% public approval rating in September 1997, after his public response to the death of Diana, Princess of Wales. In the first years of the New Labour government, Blair’s government introduced the National Minimum Wage Act, Human Rights Act and Freedom of Information Act, and carried out devolution, establishing the Scottish Parliament, the National Assembly for Wales, and the Northern Ireland Assembly, fulfilling four of the promises in its 1997 manifesto.
In Northern Ireland Blair was involved in the 1998 Good Friday Agreement. From the start of the War on Terror in 2001, he strongly supported much of the foreign policy of US President George W. Bush, and ensured that British armed forces participated in the 2001 invasion of Afghanistan and, more controversially, the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Blair is the Labour Party’s longest-serving Prime Minister, the only person to have led the Labour Party to more than two consecutive general election victories, and the only Labour Prime Minister to serve consecutive terms more than one of which was at least four years long.
Blair was succeeded as Leader of the Labour Party on 24 June 2007 and as Prime Minister on 27 June 2007 by Gordon Brown.On the day he resigned as Prime Minister, he was appointed the official Envoy of the Quartet on the Middle East. In May 2008, Blair launched his Tony Blair Faith Foundation. This was followed in July 2009 by the launching of the Faith and Globalisation Initiativewith Yale University in the US, Durham University in the UK and the National University of Singapore in Asia to deliver a postgraduate programme in partnership with the Foundation. ….

“In 1900 the Society produced Fabianism and the Empire, the first statement of its views on foreign affairs, drafted by Bernard Shaw and incorporating the suggestions of 150 Fabian members. It was directed against the liberal individualism of those such as John Morley and Sir William Harcourt. It claimed that the classical liberal political economy was outdated, and that imperialism was the new stage of the international polity. The question was whether Britain would be the centre of a world empire or whether it would lose its colonies and end up as just two islands in the North Atlantic. It expressed support for Britain in the Boer War because small nations, such as the Boers, were anachronisms in the age of empires. In order to hold onto the Empire, the British needed to fully exploit the trade opportunities secured by war; maintain the British armed forces in a high state of readiness to defend the Empire; the creation of a citizen army to replace the professional army; the Factory Acts would be amended to extend to 21 the age for half-time employment, so that the thirty hours gained would be used in “a combination of physical exercises, technical education, education in civil citizenship…and field training in the use of modern weapons“.
In the Middle East, the theories of Fabian Society intellectual movement of early-20th-century Britain inspired the Ba’athist vision. The Middle East adaptation of Fabian socialism led the state to control big industry, transport, banks, internal and external trade. The state would direct the course of economic development, with the ultimate aim to provide a guaranteed minimum standard of living for all. Michel Aflaq, widely considered as the founder of the Ba’athist movement, was a Fabian socialist. Aflaq’s ideas, with those of Salah al-Din al-Bitar and Zaki al-Arsuzi, came to fruition in the Arab world in the form of dictatorial regimes in Iraq and Syria. Salāmah Mūsā of Egypt, another prominent champion of Arab Socialism, was a keen adherent of Fabian Society, and a member since 1909.”
