To Whom It May Concern:
Field McConnell – United States Marine and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger – has linked Jamie Gorelick and Jared Kushner associates’ alleged use of DOJ JABS* software to book prostitutes and blackmailed guests into ‘raves’ at a BC pig farm (1996-2002) to the Clinton Foundation donors who appear to have injected fake news on the federal bridge** to conceal a sarin gas attack on April 4 by Serco 8(a) Demons*** on a town in southern Idlib, falsely attributed to the Syrian government.
*Joint Automated Booking System (JABS) – A software system developed by Nortel Government Solutions for the Department of Justice (DOJ) to inject fingerprint, photographic and biographic data into the federal bridge and decoy crime-scene investigators with tainted labs and fake identities.
** The Federal Bridge Certification Authority – A blackmail or honey-pot network allegedly set up by Serco 8(a) companies for Clinton Foundation donors to synchronize fake-news injection through media plays with deep-state sabotage, murder, propaganda and/or child-trafficking missions.
***8(a) Demons– Use Serco clock to synchronize assassination, sabotage or snuff-film attacks by 8(a) companies with fake news injects by actors tracked by Serco’s Demon face-recognition software.
McConnell alleges that DOJ insiders, including Jamie Gorelick and McConnell’s sister and ConAir founder Kristine Marcy, began a program to “reinvent government” in October 1996 by selling root-key access to the federal bridge and JABS to Clinton donors including the convicted felon Charles Kushner, Citibank and Saudi Arabia, and, thereby allowing them to conceal murder-for-hire with fake news intended to eliminate or intimidate mutual enemies including the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
With the Defense Red Switch Network bypassed during the Obama administration, President Trump and his cabinet allegedly get fake news of the Syrian gas attack through Serco 8(a) Demons embedded in the federal bridge

“Putin: “Idlib Was A “False Flag” Attack And We Have Learned That More Are Coming”
by Tyler Durden
Apr 11, 2017 9:36 PM
With Rex Tillerson on his way to Russia, moments ago Russian president Vladimir Putin shocked reporters when he said that Russia has received intelligence from “trusted sources” that more attacks using chemical weapons are being prepared on the Damascus region, meant to pin the blame on the Assad government.
“We have reports from multiple sources that false flags like this one – and I cannot call it otherwise – are being prepared in other parts of Syria, including the southern suburbs of Damascus. They plan to plant some chemical there and accuse the Syrian government of an attack,” he said at a joint press conference with Italian President Sergio Mattarella in Moscow
The Russian President announced that Russia will officially turn to the UN in the Hague for an investigation of the chemical weapons’ use in Idlib. Moscow has dismissed suggestions that the Syrian government that it backs could be behind the attack in Idlib province.
“All incidents reminiscent of the ‘chemical attacks’ that took place in Idlib must be thoroughly investigated,” Putin said.
Damascus denied the allegations, noting that the targeted area may have been hosting chemical weapons stockpiles belonging to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) or Al-Nusra Front jihadists.
The incident has not been properly investigated as yet, but the US fired dozens of cruise missiles at a Syrian airbase in a demonstration of force over what it labeled a chemical attack by Damascus.
Putin also pointed out that the latest US missile strikes in Syria bring to mind the United States’ UN Security Council address in 2003 that led to the invasion of Iraq, an address which has now been thoroughly debunked as using flawed information to garner global support for an invasion.
“President Mattarella and I discussed it, and I told him that this reminds me strongly of the events in 2003, when the US representatives demonstrated at the UN Security Council session the presumed chemical weapons found in Iraq. The military campaign was subsequently launched in Iraq and it ended with the devastation of the country, the growth of the terrorist threat and the appearance of Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS] on the world stage,” he added.
The Russian president also slammed the Idlib attack, officially denouncing it as a “false flag” attack.
Putin also said that there is no meeting with Tillerson currently on his schedule.
Following Putin’s presser, Russian General Staff released a statement announcing that it has information of militants bringing poisonous substances to areas of Khan Shaykhun, West of Aleppo and Eastern Guta in Syria.
Chief of the Russian General Staff Main Operational Directorate Col. Gen. Sergei Rudskoy said that the militants are trying to provoke new accusations targeted at Syrian government for alleged use of chemical weapons. The militants aim to incite the US to conduct new strikes, Rudskoy warned, adding that such measures are impermissible. He said that according to the Russian general staff new US airstrikes in Syria are unacceptable and that the Syrian forces posses no chemical weapons.”
“3 others arrested in Pickton probe, jury told
This story contains disturbing details CBC News
Posted: Jan 29, 2007 4:06 PM ET Last Updated: Jan 29, 2007 9:26 PM ET
Three other people besides Robert William Pickton were arrested in connection with the murders of Vancouver’s missing women, the lead investigator in the case testified Monday.
None were charged with any of the murders.
The information came out at the start of the second week of Pickton’s first-degree murder trial for the deaths of six women in New Westminster, B.C., during defence lawyer Peter Ritchie’s cross-examination of Insp. Don Adam, the RCMP officer in charge of the investigation.
Lynn Ellingsen and Dinah Taylor were arrested more than a week before Pickton was arrested in February 2002,Adam said.
But he said Ellingsen’s connection was “resolved” after an interview with police.
Adam told the court there was an extensive and thorough investigation into Taylor and Pat Casanova, who was arrested almost a year later in January 2003.
The jury has viewed the RCMP’s videotaped interrogation of Pickton, in which Casanova is described as Pickton’s friend and police allege Ellingsen was blackmailing Pickton. Thejury has heardEllingsen will testify against Pickton.
Casanova is described as Pickton’s friend who helped him butcher pigs. Casanovawill also testify during the trial.
‘I believe he was deliberately playing head games with me.’—RCMP Insp. Don Adam on Robert William Pickton during his 11-hour interrogation
During the interrogation, Pickton said he and Taylor were very close. When Adam pushed Pickton to tell police what happened at the farm, Pickton said several times that he had to talk to her first.
Adam also said he felt Pickton was “toying” with him during the 11-hour interrogation.
“I believe he was deliberately playing head games with me,” Adam said.
Criminal lawyer Donna Turkotold CBC News thatPickton’s defence lawyer will want to keep asking questions about other possible suspects in this case.
“It’s absolutely essential for the defence, at the earliest time possible, to put in front of the jury the possibility that other persons may be responsible for this crime,” Turko said Monday.
“I think the public and everyone has been wondering, was Mr. Pickton capable of these murders? Was he assisted by somebody, or was he actually an accessory after the fact?”
Plans to search farm before Pickton’s arrest
Earlier in his testimony, Adam told the murder trial that Pickton was a person of interestin the disappearance of women from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, and plans were underway to search his suburban pig farm before his arrest five years ago.
He said police were preparing to get a search warrant when Pickton was arrested and released on an unrelated firearms charge.
Two weeks later, Pickton was arrested again and charged with the alleged murders of two missing women. He was eventually charged with 26 counts of first-degree murder. In the current trial, which began Jan. 22 in B.C. Supreme Court, he is being tried for six counts of first-degree murder.
Adam also told the jury that the investigation is not over, and, in fact, has become even larger because evidence turned up in this case has led police to other unsolved homicides.
The judge ruled last year that trying all the charges at once would be too much for the jury, so he split the case into two trials, with the second one to be held later. Pickton has pleaded not guilty to all charges.”
“Charles Kushner seemed to have an insatiable appetite for money and power and recognized the role politics played at the nexus of both. To maximize his influence, Kushner circumvented federal campaign finance laws by funneling money to candidates and elected officials with donations made in the names of other people and through the more than 100 separate real-estate development partnerships he controlled. In one of this already absurd campaign’s more novelistic ironies, Kushner’s dirty dealings caught the attention of a young, ambitious federal prosecutor named Chris Christie, who opened up an investigation that called Kushner’s sister, Esther, and brother-in-law, Billy, as witnesses. Determined to prevent Billy from testifying, Charles set up a honey trap for his brother-in-law in a motel room—fully equipped with video cameras—and paid a prostitute $10,000. Kushner then sent a tape of the assignation to his sister, who promptly turned her brother’s attempt at blackmail over to the authorities.”
Jared Kushner, Beware of Jamie Gorelick
By Jack Cashill
More than a few of my Washington allies noticed a seemingly unremarkable bit of news in a Monday Washington Post article that they thought I ought to see. The article concerned Jared Kushner’s appointment as adviser to his father-in-law Donald Trump.
The appointment did not trouble my friends. What troubled them was the Post’s casual mention that Kushner’s attorney was none other than Jamie Gorelick, deputy attorney general under President Bill Clinton. Observed the Post, Gorelick “is confident that the anti-nepotism statute does not cover Trump’s appointment of Kushner.”
Nepotism was the thrust of the article. The Post made no allusion to the concerns my friends and I have about this relationship. I assured them that Kushner probably does not know Gorelick’s history. I write this to make him aware of why bloggers have taken to calling Gorelick, “The Mistress of Disaster.”
Some recent highlights. In 2014, it was revealed that the George Soros-funded Urban Institute had an officially sanctioned role in the vetting of non-profits that seek tax-exempt status through the IRS. Gorelick was the vice-chairman of the Urban Institute board.
In 2011, she represented Duke University in its attempt to squash a suit by lacrosse team members whose lives had been turned upside down by false rape accusations that the university aided and abetted. In 2010, Gorelick represented BP in the Deepwater Horizon oil mess. It gets worse, much worse.
In 1993, as deputy attorney general under President Clinton, Gorelick served as “field commander” for the horrific government assault on a religious community in Waco, Texas, that left more than eighty dead, twenty of them children.
In 1995, she went on to pen the infamous “wall” memo that prevented the FBI and CIA from sharing information in the run-up to September 11. At the time, a dismayed FBI investigator wrote a memo to headquarters which included the sentence, “Someday someone will die — and wall or not — the public will not understand why we were not more effective.”
In 1996, Gorelick stepped up her game, taking a lead role in the investigation of the TWA Flight 800 disaster. This was the 747 that inexplicably blew up off the coast of Long Island in July 1996 killing 230 people.
As deputy attorney general serving under a feckless Janet Reno, Gorelick’s assignment was to rein in the FBI. Five weeks into the investigation, she summoned FBI honcho Jim Kallstrom to Washington and served up a dose of political reality. To be sure, no account of the Aug. 22 meeting provides any more than routine detail, but behaviors began to change immediately afterwards.
The FBI had already leaked to the New York Times information that would result in a headline on Aug. 23, top right: “Prime Evidence Found That Device Exploded in Cabin of Flight 800.” This article stole the thunder from Clinton’s election-driven approval of welfare reform in that same day’s paper and threatened to undermine the peace and prosperity message of the next week’s Democratic National Convention.
What followed in the next several weeks was the most ambitious and successful cover-up in American peacetime history. At its center was Gorelick. With the help of a complicit media and the active involvement of the CIA, she and her cronies transformed a transparent missile strike into a mechanical failure of unknown origin.
Given her role, the months after the crash had to have been emotionally harrowing. In May 1997, the Clintons appear to have rewarded Gorelick for her steely performance with a job that would pay her $877,573 in that first half-year alone.
According to a Lexis search, not one reporter even questioned why a middling bureaucrat with no financial or housing experience would be handed the vice chairmanship of Fannie Mae, a sinecure that the Washington Monthly called “the equivalent of winning the lottery.”
Six years and an incredible $25.6 million later, having done her share to wreck the American economy, Gorelick responded to the call of duty once more and took just one of five Democratic seats on the 9/11 Commission.
During the 2004 Commission hearings, CIA Director George Tenet first addressed the “wall that was in place between the criminal side and the intelligence side.” Tenet made that barrier sound impenetrable.
“What’s in a criminal case doesn’t cross over that line. Ironclad regulations,” he insisted. “So that even people in the Criminal Division and the Intelligence Divisions of the FBI couldn’t talk to each other, let alone talk to us or us talk to them.”
In her response to Tenet, Gorelick acknowledged the wall and claimed to have used “brute force” in her attempt to penetrate it, but she took no responsibility for its creation. The task of assigning credit was left to Attorney General John Ashcroft.
“The single greatest structural cause for Sept. 11 was the wall,” said Ashcroft. “Full disclosure compels me to inform you that its author is a member of the commission.” That author, of course, was Gorelick, the same official who oversaw the cooperation of the FBI and the CIA in the corruption of the TWA 800 investigation.
As the nation learned in the aftermath of 9/11, the “wall” that was breached all too easily to protect the secrets of TWA 800 held much too firmly when it came to the secrets of our enemies.
Jared, don’t trust her! If need be, I would be happy to sit in a room with Ms. Gorelick and hash this out.”
“Global swoop on newsgroup paedophiles
By Will Knight
More than 130 people in 19 different countries have been arrested or are under investigation after police traced the distribution of child pornography through different internet newsgroups.
Technical experts at UK internet service provider Demon Internet aided officers from the National Crime Squad’s new Hi-Tech Crime Unit with the investigation.
A spokesperson from Thus, Demon’s parent company, says that investigators were not given access to the server logs that record Demon users’ activities.
Investigators were simply provided with access to newsgroup postings in the same way as any other Demon customer. Technical experts from Demon then helped officers distinguish the identifying information contained within the message “headers” of particular postings.
Officers traced postings relating to certain images to different internet service providers around the world and then contacted Interpol to track down suspects.
Investigators say they discovered 10,000 suspect postings to over 30 different newsgroups and identified 60,000 new images. They plan to use face recognition software to identify victims in different images, to help trace them. This software has been developed in conjunction with UK company Serco, although no technical details have been released.
“This operation has sadly and distressingly brought thousands of new images of abuse to our attention,” said Detective Superintendent Peter Spindler of the National Crime Squad. “These young victims need to be identified and protected as quickly as possible.”
Spindler added: “We are able to show that those accessing these newsgroups did so regularly and with purpose.”
Nine regional police forces in the UK were involved in the operation. Warrants for searches or arrests were issued in 19 countries, including Australia, Canada, Germany, Israel, Japan, Russia, Sweden, Turkey, and the US.
According to a report by the BBC, another 400 suspects could not be traced by investigators. Police have not said how they evaded detection but it is possible to post messages to news groups anonymously using intermediary servers that strip away header information.
The UK government introduced legislation in 2000, giving the police greater access to internet communications. Further provisions for the extended storage of data is included in new anti-terrorist legislation currently passing through parliament.
Privacy advocates claim that these laws could be misused and some question the justification for the legislation. Peter Sommer, at the London School of Economics computer science department, says that the techniques involved in the latest paedophile investigation did not require a special police warrant.
“It is apparent that the existing legislation was sufficient to help the NCS gather evidence and secure the ISP co-operation needed,” Sommer told New Scientist.’
“FOR IMMEDIATE AG TUESDAY, OCTOBER 22, 1996 .. ATTORNEY GENERAL PRESENTS HAMMER AWARDS AT DOJ “LAB DAY” .. WASHINGTON, DC — Attorney General Janet Reno presented Hammer Awards to three employee working groups from Justice Department components as part of the Department’s “Justice Performance Review Lab Day,” an event showcasing the achievements of the Department’s 16 reinvention labs … “By accepting the challenge to re-invent government, these employees are making government more efficient and improving the way we perform our public responsibilities,” Reno said during the Lab Day event in the Justice Department’s Great Hall. Deputy Attorney General Jamie Gorelick, who also attended, noted that the employees “have taken the concept of creating a government that works better and costs less and have made it a reality.” The three Justice Department teams receiving the award are: * The SENTRI Reinvention Lab, for developing a secure, high-tech, automated border inspection system at Otay Mesa, California; * The Joint Automated Booking System (JABS) Lab, a multi- component effort which has significantly improved the prisoner booking process; * The Justice Prisoner Alien Transportation System (JPATS), which combines the resources of several DOJ components to schedule and transport prisoners more quickly, safely, and economically.

“Starnet Gets Its Office Back; Some Casino Interruptions Over Weekend
23 August 1999
by Fred Faust
Starnet Communications International Inc. is back in control of its Vancouver headquarters, following a dramatic upheaval that began with police raids early Friday morning. At 7 a.m. local time Monday, the office phone was answered by a cheery young woman, and management and staff were already on the job. In a prepared statement early Monday, chief executive Mark Dohlen said, “We are pleased to announce that our company will continue its operations and proceed with its strategic plans following minor interruptions to service over the past weekend.”
The company’s stock (OTC BB: SNMM) was up to nearly $7 a share in early Monday trading. It had tanked Friday as news of the police action spread, losing 69 percent of its value to close at $4.06. More than 10.5 million shares traded Friday, more than 18 times the recent average volume.
Starnet is one of the largest providers of gaming software and e-cash financial services for online casinos. It also operates Internet pornography sites. Both lines of business are targets of a long-running police investigation that climaxed in Friday’s raids on Starnet’s headquarters and at the homes of six of its top executives.
The company’s 170 Vancouver employees were not allowed into their offices Friday, as investigators for the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and local police agencies combed the building. Jason King, Starnet’s chief operating officer and one of the executives whose homes was raided, told RGTOnLine early Monday that the company had regained access to three of its four floors on Saturday afternoon. The last police officers left the remaining floor early Sunday evening. A spokesman for the RCMP confirmed Monday that “the search of the premises was completed at 8 p.m. last night.” He said no other information was available in the continuing investigation. “They went through everything,”
King said. “They said they wanted as little disruption as possible, but they couldn’t do everything they needed to in the time span, so they had to take some things. “We said we’d cooperate fully, and we did. We provided system administrators and developers to help expedite the investigators’ work. We went well beyond the search warrant, to show them what we believe is true, and to expedite the process.
“They were pretty specific in their requests. They knew what they were looking for.” King said the headquarters has about 200 work stations and 150 servers. The police carried out about 10 total systems, he estimated. Disruptions for Starnet’s licensed casinos and their bettors appears to have been minimal. “Our sites have been up and down over the weekend,” said the manager of one online casino Sunday night. “We can’t get the stats; the ‘admin’ is not available. But people seem to be able to place their wagers.” A manager of another casino, Superbet.com, said late Sunday, “We are experiencing no problems from the Starnet situation. Our system is up and working fine. Our servers did go down over the weekend for some maintenance, but this was not related to the Starnet situation.”
King said there were intermittent disruptions in service over the weekend, but that casinos were able to take bets most of the time. Even over the weekend, he said, credit card transactions were processed. That means that bettors were able to receive credits posted to their credit card accounts. Winnings that are larger than what is originally deposited by credit card cannot be paid by credit card. They have to paid by check or wire transfer. Such checks or wire transfers will go out today, King said Monday. King said the investigators were amazed at the array of equipment at Starnet’s headquarters, which is in a rundown section of Vancouver. “The tech team was drooling at our tech capacity here,” King said. “Some even joked about coming to work for us.”
Although authorities said they have been investigating Starnet for 18 months, they didn’t realize the complexity of Starnet’s business, King said. “It took us four years to build this operation, so you can’t expect people to understand it in two hours,” he said. That’s why, he said, they provided the police with access to some of Starnet’s servers in Antigua. Canadian authorities have no right to physically inspect the operations that are in Antigua. King said they didn’t give police access to the data bases in Antigua, but did let them look at the architecture of the computer systems there. “They came in, I’m sure, thinking that everything was run out of Vancouver,” King said, “not realizing how extensive the operation is in Antigua.” He said about 30 employees are based on the island.
No one has been charged or arrested in the investigation. CLEU, the Coordinated Law Enforcement Unit of British Columbia, said Friday that “the offences being investigated include illegal betting and bookmaking, making agreements for the purchase or sale of betting or gaming privileges, providing information intended for use in connection with bookmaking, possession and distribution of pornographic material, and possession of the proceeds of crime.
“Starnet Communications and its subsidiaries have been under investigation by CLEU investigators for over eighteen months in regard to illegal gaming and the distribution of prohibited pornographic materials over the Internet. Investigators have determined that millions of dollars flowed through Starnet controlled bank accounts each month as the result of its Internet based gaming system.”
Starnet’s original business was the operation of pornographic Internet sites. It still has that business, which its executives have said they will sell in order to concentrate on online gaming.
Friday’s raids resulted in major stories in the Canadian media. And investors were distraught over the drastic drop in price of what had been one of the year’s hottest stocks.
Internet chat rooms were full of talk about Starnet. The bulletin board of www.ragingbull.com, for example, had hundreds of postings about the company.
One subject of intense speculation was whether the Federal Bureau of Investigation was involved in the raids, given the hostility of many U.S. officials to Internet gaming.
Published reports based on police documents give no indication that the FBI was involved. But two U.S. agencies apparently were: the Internal Revenue Service’s Criminal Investigation Division and the U.S. Customs Service.
King said no investigator identified himself or herself as an American agent, and Starnet had no obvious indication that Americans were involved.
“Police drop investigation into Serco prisoner transport contract
The outsourcing group said there was no evidence of individual or corporate wrongdoing
By Marion Dakers 7:42AM GMT 19 Dec 2014
The City of London Police has closed an investigation into Serco’s prisoner transport contract after more than a year of work, enabling the firm to continue with the contract until 2018.
The Ministry of Justice called in the police in August 2013 to examine whether Serco had misleadingly recorded prisoners as being ready for court when they were not, in order to meet the performance criteria of the contract.
However, Serco said on Friday that the probe into the Prisoner Escort and Custody Services (PECS) contract had been closed after the police found no evidence to support bringing charges against the outsourcing firm or its staff.
“The information obtained was also sufficient for the City of London Police to conclude there was no evidence of any corporate-wide conspiracy or an intention to falsify figures to meet the DRACT [designated ready and available for court time] contract requirement by senior Serco management or at the board level of the company,” the firm said in a statement.”
“Call it ConAir and Little knows what you mean. It’s the name the air transport system has picked up inside the U.S. Marshals Service, which flies a fleet of 13 airplanes on regular routes across the country every day.
During the past year, the prisoner airline spent $24 million moving more than 100,000 federal inmates — including 12,000 from San Diego — to and from trials, prisons and medical centers nationwide.
The inmates fly mostly on 727s and DC-9s. But the airline, which has merged with the air wing of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, also operates Convair 580s, a Lear jet and a number of smaller aircraft.
Among the most infamous of its recent travelers were Unabomber suspect Theodore Kaczynski and the men accused in the bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building, Terry Nichols and Timothy McVeigh.
Nichols and McVeigh were transported in the dead of night in an operation much akin to a clandestine military operation, Little said. He did not want to go into details but mentioned that a decoy plane was among the ploys used to guard against possible attempts by supporters to free the suspects.
Federal officials have always been circumspect about the fine points of prisoner movement. But ConAir soon could gain a higher public profile with the planned release in June of a movie by the same name.
In the Disney film, Nicolas Cage plays a hapless prisoner who wanders into a hijack plot aboard a Marshals Service plane carrying a group of high-security inmates.
The Hollywood marshals rough up some of the prisoners, and the plane crashes, leaving the real Marshals Service frowning on the silver screen’s invention, said Kristine Marcy, [Field McConnell’s sister] a top official in charge of detentions.
“We don’t beat up our prisoners, and our planes certainly don’t crash,” Marcy said on a recent trip to San Diego, where she was trying to find more jail space for federal prisoners.
The space problem here is acute because of the high number of border arrests.
So, San Diego is a regular stop on ConAir’s West Coast air route, with 12 flights per week scheduled into Lindbergh Field.
Prisoners — mostly people being held for entering the country with false documents — are flown from San Diego to Las Vegas, where they are housed in the city jail. They are flown back a few days later for deportation hearings.”
“DHS ICE OTD … Since 1986, through various contracts, Serco has provided full training lifecycle support for all areas of this key Law Enforcement organization including Inspections, Border Patrol, Enforcement, and DHS operations at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Academy in Glynco, GA. .. Serco developed and scripted three scenarios based on negligent practices identified by the IG report that have resulted in the use of lost or uncontrolled weapons for robbery, murder, and the accidental death of a child. We used creative animation techniques, sound effects, music, and talented voice actors playing multiple characters to create an emotional appeal much different—and infinitely more powerful—from the standard WBT offering.
Serco has trained more than 400,000 DHS students in every region and district, at every land, air and sea border crossing, in classrooms, through WBT, train-the-trainer programs, on-the-job training and through the implementation of performance support systems in a blended learning environment. In collaboration with ICE OTD, our latest efforts have resulted in the accreditation and completion of three programs, including HSI FOTP, ICE OTD IDC, and ICE OPR. Serco was integral to the ICE team that was recognized by the 2012 “Excellence in Law Enforcement” Award given to the ICE Domestic Field Operations Training Program (DFTOP) Accreditation Project for having greatly improved ICE training, increasing operational efficacy and efficiency, and minimizing safety issues to ICE officers and the public.”
