2865: Can Trump Use Marine Corps Switch To Eradicate Serco 8(a) Networks And ISIS Visa Frauds?

December 21, 2016
Abel Danger (AD) has explained how – by transferring de facto custody of the US Defense Red Switch Network from the UK-based outsourcer Serco to the Marine Corps Intelligence Activity – President-elect Donald Trump can direct the Marines to eradicate Serco’s 8(a) companies from military or government networks (see below) and kill unlawful combatants engaged in ISIS visa frauds.
United States Marine Field McConnell – the Global Operations Director of Abel Danger – is asking for a meeting with President-elect Trump to explain how he can quickly eradicate Serco’s 8(a) networks and, indirectly, eliminate ISIS by directing the ‘expansion of peacetime components of the Marine Corps [Intelligence Activity] to meet the needs of war [on terror].’

“Congress Visa waiver program poses greater terrorist threat than refugee admissions, lawmakers say
By Karoun Demirjian November 18, 2015
As many Republicans urge a post-Paris moratorium on Syrian refugees, a band of leading lawmakers – including many Democrats – are warning that the United States visa waiver program poses the greater threat to security.
“I would tell you, from a threat standpoint, I’m probably more concerned with the visa waiver program today,” said Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.), chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. “Were I in Europe already, and I wanted to go the United States, and were I not on a watch list or a no-fly list and I wanted to get there, the likelihood is I would use the visa waiver program before I would try to pawn myself off as a refugee.”
Much of the political debate following the Paris attacks has focused on whether to suspend or restrict the influx of Syrian immigrants into the U.S. seeking refuge from civil war in their country.
But some lawmakers on Tuesday warned that the much bigger problem was the visa waiver program, which was enacted in 1986 and brings almost 20 million people to the U.S. every year.
Under the program — which covers 38 countries, 30 of which are in Europe, including France, Belgium and Germany — citizens of waiver countries can enter the U.S. with minimal screening. That makes it much harder to identify and weed out European nationals seeking to enter the U.S. after traveling to ISIS training camps in other nations and then returning to Europe.
“Europe has a much more massive number of people who’ve come back” from jihadist training centers than does the U.S., said Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), following a classified briefing with Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson and FBI Director James Comey on Tuesday. “And they’ve come back to visa waiver countries.”
Schiff, the ranking member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, said that the U.S. has a more limited ability to track Europeans returning from ISIS strongholds than Americans who do the same, due in part to restrictions on information sharing. But the waiver program doesn’t take that into account.
[Republicans call for ‘pause’ on Syrian refugee program]
Travelers taking advantage of the visa waiver program must have a valid passport, register electronically before traveling, and their stays are limited to 90 days. The tourist and business travelers eligible for the program are still screened, but there is no requirement for a face-to-face interview before entering the country.”

“Serco Awarded $13 Million Marine Training Systems Support Contract
Date: 28 Feb 2014
Serco Inc., a provider of professional, technology, and management services, announced the award of a new contract to provide training support to the US Marine Corps (USMC). The Marine Air Ground Task Force (MAGTF) Training Systems Support contract has a one-year base period and one six-month option period valued at nearly $18 million, if the option is exercised.
Under this contract, Serco will support Combat Instructor School training, systems integrations and operations in a classroom and operations center environment in support of MAGTF Staff Training Program Division-sponsored and supported events. Serco will deliver collaborative tools and web development for garrison and tactical event environments. Training support will include warfighting skills and seminars, mission rehearsal exercises, C2 systems, and combat simulation. Serco expects to hire over 100 new employees to support this contract at 6 sites around the world.
“The Marines mission is critical to our national security and we are proud to support them on this effort,” said Dan Allen, Serco Inc.’s Chairman and Chief Executive officer. “Serco is known around the world for the quality of our training programs. We look forward to putting our experience to work for the Marines and to support their vital training requirements.”
Personnel and Readiness is a key capability within Serco’s market offering. The company provides training and simulation to over 1,000 students a month at the US Army Maneuver Center of Excellence in Fort Benning, GA. At Fort Benning, Serco conducts and supports integrated and immersive tactical training exercises up to Brigade level using Live, Virtual, and Constructive Gaming (LVC-G) systems. Serco utilizes integrated exercise systems like Command Post of the Future (CPoF), Future Battle Command Brigade and Below (FBCB2), Army Battle Command Systems (ABCS) and Virtual Battlespace II (VBS2).”
“The September 11 Travel Operation The success of the September 11 plot depended on the ability of the hijackers to obtain visas [throughSerco’s National Visa Center set up by Field McConnell’s sister Kristine ‘Con Air’ Marcy, the former Senior Counsel for the Detention and Deportation Program for the INS] and pass an immigration and customs inspection in order to enter the United States. It also depended on their ability to remain here undetected while they worked out the operational details of the attack. If they had failed on either count—entering and becoming embedded—the plot could not have been executed. Here we present the facts and circumstances of the hijackers’ travel operation, including their 25 contacts with consular officers and their 43 contacts with immigration and customs authorities. We also discuss the 12 contacts with border authorities by other September 11 conspirators who applied for a visa. The narrative is chronological, retracing the hijackers’ steps from their initial applications for U.S. visas, through their entry into the United States, to their applications for immigration benefits, and up through their acquisition of state identifications that helped them board the planes. Along the way, we note relevant actions by U.S. government authorities to combat terrorism. There were a few lucky breaks for U.S. border authorities in this story. Mostly, though, it is a story of how 19 hijackers easily penetrated U.S. border security.”
“Opened in 1994 as the successor to the Transitional Immigrant Visa Processing Center in Rosslyn, Va., the NVC centralizes all immigrant visa pre-processing and appointment scheduling for overseas posts. The NVC collects paperwork and fees before forwarding a case, ready for adjudication, to the responsible post.
The center also handles immigrant and fiancé visa petitions, and while it does not adjudicate visa applications, it provides technical assistance and support to visa-adjudicating consular officials overseas.
Only two Foreign Service officers, the director and deputy director, work at the center, along with just five Civil Service employees. They work with almost 500 contract employees doing preprocessing of visas, making the center one of the largest employers in the Portsmouth area.
The contractor, Serco, Inc., has worked with the NVC since its inception and with the Department for almost 18 years.
The NVC houses more than 2.6 million immigrant visa files, receives almost two million pieces of mail per year and received more than half a million petitions from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service (USCIS) in 2011. Its file rooms’ high-density shelves are stacked floor-to-ceiling with files, each a collection of someone’s hopes and dreams and each requiring proper handling. ….
The NVC also preprocesses the chief of mission (COM) application required for the filing of a petition for a Special Immigrant Visa (SIV). Such visas, for foreign nationals who have performed services for the U.S. government in Iraq and Afghanistan, require COM concurrence before the applicant can file a petition with USCIS. The NVC collects the requisite documents from such applicants and, when complete, forwards the package to the U.S. embassies in Baghdad or Kabul for COM approval”

“SERCO: ‘The biggest company you’ve never heard of’
JULY 7, 2013
21st Century Wire says…
As politicians asset-strip the public’s portfolio of properties, infrastructure and services, one multinational corporation has grown as a result – and its scope and reach may shock many people who have not been paying attention.
All around the globe, our governments are busy outsourcing public-sector services like health, education, police, prisons, money delivery and military – to the esteemed private sector. It’s sold to the public as a solution to avoiding higher taxes, while retaining better services. But it’s simply an accountancy shell game, where the government kicks the can down the road by spreading the bill to the taxpayer over a longer period of time, in order to avoid any large upfront payments – all the while, allowing a private corporation to extend its influence over society. This, by definition, is fascism. They are called SERCO, and they run countries…

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.”
