United States Marine Field McConnell Plum City Online – (AbelDanger.net) August 20, 2016
1. Abel Danger claims that Kristine Marcy launched an accelerated loan guarantee program for up to 7,000 8(a) bankers in January 2001 where an accelerated turnaround of under 60 minutes has allegedly allowed Hillary Clinton to stage ad hoc murders of her enemies on the USIS kill list.
2. AD claims that Clinton’s Travelgate aides deploy Serco – the world’s largest air traffic controller – and its 8(a) snuff-film crews through the Marriott-Starwood hotel chain to target and/or intimidate Clinton enemies including the recently-resigned chairman of the Trump campaign, Paul Manafort.
3. AD claims that lobbyist Paul Manafort resigned after watching an 8(a) snuff film on Serco hotel-security networks which allegedly showed how his clients in the party of former president Viktor Yanukovych took over the Kiev control tower and imputed ad hoc way points into MH Flight 17 for a Zulu-timed crash in East Ukraine on 17 July 2014.
4. Given that Kristine Marcy is his sister, United States Marine Field McConnell offers to show Donald Trump how to dismantle her 8(a) accelerated loan-guarantee and Clinton USIS kill list networks and bring the killers of 283 passengers and 15 crew on board MH Flight 17 to justice.

We bring to the attention of GR readers, the following timeline Tweets by the Spanish Air controller at Kiev Borisopol Airport.
This report has yet to be fully corroborated and should be read with caution. We have highlighted relevant sections. Update: the report is corroborated
There was an unexplained change of course of the Malaysian MH17 flight which took the aircraft directly over the Eastern Ukraine warzone.
The Spanish air controller confirms a conflict between the Ministry of Defense and the Ministry of the Interior intimating that the order concerning the downing of the aircraft came from the Ministry of the Interior, which is dominated by Svoboda and Right Sector.
He also said that the MH17 flight was escorted by Ukrainian fighter jets minutes before it was downed. It is worth noting that the presence of the Ukraine fighter jets reported by the Spanish air traffic controller was confirmed by eyewitness reports in the Donetsk region:
“eyewitnesses in the Donetsk region saw Ukrainian warplanes near the passenger jet.They say they heard sounds of powerful blasts and saw a Ukraine warplane shortly before the crash. (ITAR Tass)

We are informed that the twitter account of the Spanish air controller has been closed down. Following his statements, he and is family have been threatened by the Kiev regime, including death threats.
He has been deported from Ukraine. He is a man of courage and determination committed to the truth.
“Washington (CNN) FBI and Justice Department prosecutors are conducting an investigation into possible US ties to alleged corruption of the former pro-Russian president of Ukraine, including the work of Paul Manafort’s firm, according to multiple US law enforcement officials.
The investigation is broad and is looking into whether US companies and the financial system were used to aid alleged corruption by the party of former president Viktor Yanukovych.
Manafort, who resigned as chairman of Donald Trump’s campaign Friday, has not been the focus of the probe, according to the law enforcement officials. The investigation is ongoing and prosecutors haven’t ruled anything out, the officials said.
The probe is also examining the work of other firms linked to the former Ukrainian government, including that of the Podesta Group, the lobbying and public relations company run by Tony Podesta, brother of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta.
Anti-corruption investigators in Ukraine have alleged Yanukovych and members of his party ran a corrupt regime. He fled to Russia following a public uprising in 2014.
The FBI, Justice Department and Manafort declined to comment. A Washington attorney who represents Manafort and Yanukovych didn’t respond to a request for comment.
The Podesta group issued a statement saying it hired lawyers to examine its relationship with a not-for-profit organization linked to the ousted Ukrainian regime.
The firm has retained Caplin & Drysdale as independent, outside legal counsel to determine if we were misled by the Centre for a Modern Ukraine or any other individuals with regard to the Centre’s potential ties to foreign governments or political parties,” the statement said.
It continued: “When the Centre became a client, it certified in writing that ‘none of the activities of the Centre are directly or indirectly supervised, directed, controlled, financed or subsidized in whole or in part by a government of a foreign country or a foreign political party.’ We relied on that certification and advice from counsel in registering and reporting under the Lobbying Disclosure Act rather than the Foreign Agents Registration Act. We will take whatever measures are necessary to address this situation based on Caplin & Drysdale’s review, including possible legal action against the Centre.””

SBA modernizes to help feed its growing programs BY PATRICIA DAUKANTAS | GCN STAFF Under a five-year plan for overhauling its information technology systems, the Small Business Administration recently acquired new software for financial and other administrative tasks.
By the time SBA celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2003, agency officials want all their programs up and running around the clock, chief financial officer Joseph Loddo said.
In the first phase of the modernization, the agency has upgraded systems for managing its extensive portfolio of guaranteed loans, chief operating officer Kristine Marcy said.
SBA processed its first electronic loan last November through its Sacramento, Calif., office and plans to add more private lenders during fiscal 2001.
The agency’s staffing level has dropped 22 percent over the past eight years, which is another reason to improve IT, Marcy said. Over the past decade, SBA’s portfolio of loans to small and disadvantaged businesses has more than doubled to $50 billion.
‘We’re a small agency with a huge portfolio,’ Marcy said. SBA supplies more than half of the U.S. venture capital available each year.
Seventy percent to 80 percent of the loans are booked through a preferred lender program [structured by Serco], which involves nearly 7,000 banks, Marcy said. SBA guarantees the loans, just as the government backs student and housing loans.
‘The financial and IT businesses were changing so rapidly, we had to make some changes to stay current with the private sector,’ Marcy said. Banks had been asking SBA to make faster decisions on loan guarantees. The agency decided to aim for a turnaround time of one hour.”
“Donald Trump’s Turnberry golf club to no longer host The Open tournament amid anger over controversial remarks
The more offensive he is, the more popular he is – but not in Scotland, and not with golf’s ruling class
When Donald Trump bought the famous Turnberry golf club in Ayrshire last year, he believed his name would soon be cemented alongside the legends of the game.
But his dream of handing over the trophy at The Open is in tatters,The Independent on Sunday can reveal, after golf’s governing body, headquartered in Scotland, privately decided that his reputation is now so toxic that the newly renamed Trump Turnberry can no longer host the game’s most prestigious tournament.
Controversial remarks made by Mr Trump in his campaign for the Republican nomination – about Muslims, Mexicans, Chinese and women, among others – have given him a near-pariah status in the global game, raising the risk of a boycott by sponsors and international players.
Previously, the new chief executive of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews, Martin Slumbers, had been expected to endorse Turnberry as a venue for the 2020 Open.
But in June Mr Trump called Mexican immigrants “rapists” and called for a wall to be built along the United States-Mexico border. The comment, according to R&A insiders, raised eyebrows about what might come next.
One member told The Independent on Sunday: “Those who forecast worse would come, including warnings from our American cousins, have been proved correct.”
“Support Services for Starwood Hotels Group Starwood Hotels Group, owner of some of the [Innholders] world’s most prestigious hotels, has appointed Serco as preferred bidder for a £7m contract to provide a range of support services to the Sheraton Grand in Edinburgh, the Westin in Dublin and the 5 star Turnberry resort on Scotland’s west coast. The contract, which has a 5 year term, is an extension to services already provided to other [Innholders] hotels in the Starwood Group and includes buildings maintenance and security, engineering support and [WiFi] help desk services.”
“The White House travel office controversy, sometimes referred to as Travelgate, was the first major ethics controversy of the Clinton administration. It began in May 1993, when seven employees of the White House Travel Office were fired. This action was unusual because although theoretically staff employees serve at the pleasure of the President and could be dismissed without cause, in practice, such employees usually remain in their posts for many years.
The White House stated the firings were done because financial improprieties in the Travel Office operation during previous administrations had been revealed by an FBI investigation. Critics contended the firings were done to allow friends of President Bill Clinton and First Lady Hillary Clinton to take over the travel business and that the involvement of the FBI was unwarranted. Heavy media attention forced the White House to reinstate most of the employees in other jobs and remove the Clinton associates from the travel role.
Hillary Clinton gradually came under scrutiny for allegedly having played a central role in the firings and making false statements about her role in it. In 2000, Independent Counsel Robert Ray issued his final report on Travelgate. He sought no charges against her, saying that while some of Clinton’s statements were factually false, there was insufficient evidence that these statements were either knowingly false or that she understood that her statements led to the firings.”
“FALLS CHURCH, Va. & IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–US Investigations Services, LLC (USIS), a leading provider of pre-employment and drug testing screening solutions and the largest provider of security investigations to the federal government, and HireRight, Inc.

USIS is a leading provider of security screenings, background investigations, employment and drug screening services, automotive insurance underwriting services, and national security solutions to government and corporate clients. Headquartered in Falls Church, Va., the company has more than 7,000 employees that support business operations in all 50 states, U.S. territories, and overseas. USIS was formed in July 1996 following a White House initiative that led to the establishment of US Investigations Services, Inc. (USIS) as the first privatization of a government program into the private sector. Today, the company is owned by Providence Equity Partners, the largest global private equity firm dedicated to investing in the media, information services and communications industries.
USIS’ three businesses include the Investigative Services Division, the largest supplier of background investigations to the federal government and a provider of screening services to law enforcement agencies and first responder organizations; the Commercial Services Division, one of the nation’s largest employment and drug screening companies that serves the needs of approximately 25,000 businesses across the U.S.; and the National Security Division, a global provider of specialized national security solutions that support the mission critical needs of a wide-range of federal programs.

The federal contractor sued by the Justice Department for failing to adequately conduct government security clearances—including NSA leaker Edward Snowden—is processing sensitive immigration applications for the Obama administration.
This astounding information comes from a high-ranking government source with detailed knowledge of the arrangement. Though it’s being investigated by the Department of Justice (DOJ) for fraud, United States Investigations Services (USIS), has been taking over a lot of administrative processing of immigration benefit applications, the inside source told Judicial Watch. The scandal-plagued company is also handling sensitive immigration files, despite its well-documented transgressions.
It’s preposterous that a company under fraud investigation is still allowed to handle sensitive government applications, JW’s source logically points out. Here’s how it happens; Most of USIS’s executives are retired officials who worked for the influential Senior Executive Service at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM), the agency that operates and oversees nearly every government activity in dozens of federal agencies. Their connections help them land federal contracts, JW’s source says, and once they land the lucrative deals they convince the government to let them do their own quality assurance so they cut corners.
The serious corner cutting came to light after Snowden, a National Security Administration contractor, divulged thousands of classified documents to the media. USIS, which handles the bulk of background checks for government security clearances, had conducted Snowden’s background check as well as the clearance for Navy Yard shooter Aaron Alexis. Since the two breaches occurred, former USIS employees have come forward accusing the company of unrealistic deadlines and workloads, dumping cases and producing incomplete background checks to meet revenue goals.
As part of its fraud probe of USIS, which is based in Falls Church, Virginia, the DOJ filed a lawsuit in federal court earlier this year accusing the contractor of failing to adequately conduct security checks in 40% of the cases it handled for the government. USIS submitted at least 665,000 incomplete background checks to OPM, the agency that officially contracts firms to do government work, the complaint says. It further alleges that USIS dumped and flushed cases, falsely representing them as completed, to maximize the company’s revenues and profits.
Months before it filed the complaint, the DOJ announced that it had launched an investigation of USIS, which the agency revealed had been contracted by the U.S. government since 1996 to perform background investigations on individuals seeking employment with various federal agencies. In the announcement a high-ranking federal prosecutor said USIS’s shortcuts would not be tolerated and that the DOJ would take action against those who charge taxpayers for services they failed to provide, “services that could place our country’s security at risk.”
The top federal prosecutor in the Alabama district where the DOJ filed the USIS lawsuit added that “the increase in foreign and domestic terrorism places an increased responsibility on our government to ensure that unsuitable individuals are prohibited from government employment.” That means thorough, appropriate and accurate background checks are essential in the employment of government personnel, the assistant U.S. Attorney said. It appears from the written announcement that the feds get it, but their actions (letting a tainted company handle sensitive immigration files) tell a different story.”

“UK Cabinet Office – Emergency Planning College – Serco …..Types of Exercise Workshop Exercises These are structured discussion events where participants can explore issues in a less pressurised environment. They are an ideal way of developing solutions, procedures and plans rather than the focus being on decision making. Table Top Exercises These involve a realistic scenario and will follow a time line, either in real-time or with time jumps to concentrate on the more important areas. The participants would be expected to be familiar with the plans and procedures that are being used although the exercise tempo and complexity can be adjusted to suit the current state of training and readiness. Simulation and media play can be used to support the exercise. Table-top exercises help develop teamwork and allow participants to gain a better understanding of their roles and that of other agencies and organisations. Command/Control Post Exercises These are designed primarily to exercise the senior leadership and support staff in collective planning and decision making within a strategic grouping.Ideally such exercises would be run from the real command and control locations and using their communications and information systems[Feeling lucky, Punk?]. This could include a mix of locations and varying levels of technical simulation support. The Gold Standard system is flexible to allow the tempo and intensity to be adjusted to ensure maximum training benefit, or to fully test and evaluate the most important aspects of a plan. Such exercises also test information flow, communications, equipment, procedures, decision making and coordination. Live Exercises These can range from testing individual components of a system or organisation through to a full-scale rehearsal. They are particularly useful where there are regulatory requirements or with high-risk situations. They are more complex and costly to organise and deliver but can be integrated with Command Post Exercises as part of a wider exercising package.”
