City of London’s Ownership of American Colonies

Source: BATR

The misplaced reverence to the ill formulated U.S Constitution and hidden subjugation back to the City of London is one aspect of history that is not taught in government schools or discussed in institutes of higher education. This subject is probably new to most observers of the legacy from the Founding Father’s biggest mistake. Regular readers of BREAKING ALL THE RULES are familiar with the arguments made in the essays, In the beginning: Let there be the Articles of Confederation and Articles of Confederation was Preferable. Now the case for the betrayal of the purpose of the American Revolution needs to be explored.

Cited on the US Constitution Gave Legal Ownership and Control of the United States to London site is an assessment by Michael Edward.

“Neither the American people nor the Queen of Britain own America. The Crown Temple owns America through the deception of those who have worn their allegiance by oath to the Middle Templar Bar. The Crown Bankers and their Middle Templar Attorneys rule America through unlawful contracts, unlawful taxes, and, contract documents of false equity through debt deceit, all strictly enforced by their completely unlawful, but ‘legal,’ Orders, Rules and Codes of the Crown Temple Courts Our so-called ‘judiciary’ in America. This is because the Crown Temple holds the land titles and estate deeds to all of North America.”

An examination of The Templars of the Crown provides elaboration on this appraisal. For an even more in-depth analysis, review the material that probes AMERICAN LAND OWNERSHIP, A TRUE OXYMORON, which deals with the work of James Montgomery.

“Many of you are aware that the laws of this nation and it’s states, were made to be in compliance and submission to the laws of England, only modified by state and federal law. You will see in this last Chapter state statutes from just a few of the original colonies, that this is the case. Are these what are called ancient statutes? Yes. However, since the king’s Corporation is alive and well as are his heirs, so is his Trust and the law used to create and govern it. The law that governs his Trust can only be amended, no law could be enacted contrary to the king’s will and cestui que trust, the main corporate sole where office is always found, the Crown. The king’s practice of granting lands in this country to those loyal to him continues, along with their land grants being protected by state ancient statutes which are still on the books. We are governed by the king’s nobles just as in times of old England, self proclaimed nobles, and corporate trusts. They rule this country and the world. The huge corporations have been granted power and liberty not known by the common man. The nobles, real and the created, occupy their possessions as fiduciaries and trustees of the king’s grants; only if they remain loyal to the system, their privilege and life style are their reward.”

Invest the time in discovering all the historic accounts, legal rulings and linkages that go back to the Crown, AKA, the City of London.

If you are unfamiliar with The (British) Crown Empire and the City of London Corporation take a quick refresher course on the actual nature of the financial foundation and codified sanction that purports to be lawful. Jurisprudence may be legal by the definition and formulations of the judicious barrister class, but it certainly is not founded on the basic principles of natural law.

Julian Websdale concludes: “The whole Earth is governed by The Crown, through Crown Colonies which belong to The City – The Crown Empire. It governs Africa and still governs China and India. The colonies of the Earth are really just Crown Colonies – The United States of America are states of The Crown.”

Now this interpretation may seem bizarre to most and the plot thickens in the The construe Powers – Behind the Global Empire piecing together a long account of legalized equity mandates.

“The signed treaties and charters between Britain and the United States reveals that King James the 1st was not only famous for translating the Bible, but for signing the first charter of Virginia in 1606. That charter granted America’s British forefathers a license to settle and colonize America and guaranteed future kings and queens of England to have sovereign authority over citizens and colonized land in America. The treaty of 1783 identifies the king of England as the prince of the United States. King George the 3rd gave up most of his claims over American colonies, but he kept his right to continue receiving payment for his business venture of colonizing America.”

The next element to consider has The Top of the Pyramid: The Rothschilds, the British Crown and the Vatican Rule the World. Read this account and trace back the historic lineage of some of the Englishmen who founded America.

“To have the Declaration of Independence recognized internationally, Middle Templar King George III agreed in the Treaty of Paris of 1783 to establish the legal Crown entity of the incorporated United States, referred to internally as the Crown Temple States (Colonies). States spelled with a capital letter ‘S,’ denotes a legal entity of the Crown.

At least five Templar Bar Attorneys under solemn oath to the Crown, signed the American Declaration of Independence. This means that both parties were agents of the Crown.”

As time proceeds, the sell out of the “shot heard around the world” revolution deepens. Two Constitutions in the United States. 1st was illegally suspended in favor of a Vatican “Crown” corporation in 1871. This approving assessment of the Federal Constitution views a Shadow Government in place since 1871.

“Since 1871 the United States president and the United States Congress has been playing politics under a different set of rules and policies. The American people do not know that there are two Constitutions in the United States. The first penned by the leaders of the newly independent states of the United States in 1776. On July 4, 1776, the people claimed their independence from the Crown (temporal authority of the Roman Catholic Pope) and Democracy was born. And for 95 years the United States people were free and independent. That freedom ended in 1871 when the original “Constitution for the United States for America” was changed to the “THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”.

The Congress realized that the country was in dire financial straits, so they made a financial deal with the devil – the Crown (a.k.a. City of London Corporation – est. by the Catholic Church on Jan 1, 1855 ) thereby incurring a DEBT to the Pope. The conniving Pope and his bankers were not about to lend the floundering nation any money without some serious stipulations. So, they devised a way of taking back control of the United States and thus, the Act of 1871 was passed. With no constitutional authority to do so, Congress created a separate form of government for the District of Columbia.

With the passage of “the Act of 1871″ a city state (a state within a state) called the District of Columbia located on 10 sq miles of land in the heart of Washington was formed with its own flag and its own independent constitution – the United States’ secret second constitution.”

Lastly, Three Corporations run the world: City of London, Washington DC and Vatican City list the City of London houses as including:

Rothschild controlled ‘Bank of England’

Lloyds of London

The London Stock Exchange

All British Banks

The Branch offices of 384 Foreign Banks

70 USA Banks

Fleet Streets Newspaper and Publishing Monopolies

Headquarters for Worldwide Freemasonry

Headquarters for the worldwide money cartel known as ‘THE CROWN’

Conclusion: “City of London directly and indirectly controls all mayors, councils, regional councils, multi-national and trans-national banks, corporations, judicial systems (through Old Bailey, Temple Bar and the Royal Courts of Justice in London), the IMF, World Bank, Vatican Bank (through N. M. Rothschild & Sons London Italian subsidiary Torlonia), European Central Bank, United States Federal Reserve (which is privately owned and secretly controlled by eight British-controlled shareholding banks), the Bank for International Settlements in Switzerland (which is also British-controlled and oversees all of the Reserve Banks around the world including our own) and the European Union and the United Nations Organization.”

This introduction to the actual influence and pompous legal authority that underpins the financial hierarchy is based upon a historic explanation that is foreign to most Americans. The implications are staggering and for this reason alone, most are not willing to do their own research. Do not get caught up in the uncanny departure from the usual rendering of reality. Remember that the City of London’s coat-of-arms reads in Latin – Domine Dirige Nos – which translates, Lord, direct us. The true question, asks just which deity do the soldiers of the Crown adore?

It remains a fact Americans continue to believe the United States of America became a “separate country” following its “war of independence” against the British in 1783. What actually happened was the setting up of America as a corporation subject to British maritime law. There has been an enormous amount of reliable evidence to demonstrate this fact. If the US is a corporation and not a country, where is some of the evidence?

The Queen of England signed off acts of the Parliament which automatically apply to the USA. In this case, modification to the Social Security Act. This is just one of many examples. This was Queen Elizabeth II carrying out maritime law on social security legislation to the IRS. And as we have clearly demonstrated over and over again, United States federal corporations continue contracting with the British corporation Serco.

“Did Serco Skyjack MH 370 With Exelis Waypoint Patent On Singapore Airlines Flight 68?”

Source: Cabal Times

Conspiracy Theory Review-Analysis; Did Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 disappear by shadowing Singapore Airlines Flight 68?

Nine days after Flight MH370 vanished into thin air, IT professional and aviation enthusiast Keith Ledgerwood came up with an interesting observation. As we are aware, MH370 vanished after turning off its transponder, and this disappearance was covered in detail at Cabal Times. What if MH370 started shadowing the flight path of another Boeing 777 which still had its transponder turned on to escape radar scrutiny? After meticulously digging up all other flights in the vicinity, he arrived at the conclusion that MH370 was shadowing Singapore Airlines Flight 68 (SIA68) from Singapore to Barcelona. The following is a review of this gamechanging theory.

The Theory

For the record, Keith is not exactly into conspiracies. To quote Keith in his own words,

I am not a conspiracy theorist and live in a very factual, data-driven world 99% of the time. That said, I do find this scenario very troubling if it indeed pans out to be true as it has huge security implications for the world at large. I was directed by a reader to the book “Reamde” by Neal Stephenson who writes of this similar scenario to disguise the theft of an airplane!

Keith first charted the course of MH370, from the point where its transponder was turned off to the point where it was last seen on Malaysian military radar. In technical terms, MH370 was last seen on an airway dubbed “P628.” Pilots use navigational aids called waypoints. And on P628, MH370 was heading to a waypoint dubbed “IGREX.” MH370 should have been at the coordinates 1815UTC when Malaysian military radar lost contact of it.

Keith started out by searching which other planes had been at 1815UTC. And sure enough, another Boeing 777 was there!

MH370 had maneuvered itself directly behind SIA68 at approximately 18:00UTC and over the next 15 minutes had been following SIA68!

To quote,

I investigated further and plotted the exact coordinates of Singapore Airlines flight number 68’s location at 1815UTC onto the aviation map. I quickly realized that SIA68 was in the immediate vicinity as the missing MH370 flight at precisely the same time. Moreover, SIA68 was en-route on a heading towards the same IGREX waypoint on airway P628 that the Malaysian military radar had shown MH370 headed towards at precisely the same time.

It became apparent as I inspected SIA68’s flight path history that MH370 had maneuvered itself directly behind SIA68 at approximately 18:00UTC and over the next 15 minutes had been following SIA68. All the pieces of my theory had been fitting together with the facts that have been publically released and I began to feel a little uneasy.

Kelly 218: Serco’s Death-Pool Phantom Patents, Clinton’s MH Way Point Wagers, Con Air Buck & Drew

General John F. Kelly
White House Chief of Staff
Washington, D.C. 20528

Open letter from the Cloud Centric Crime Scene Investigators of Abel Danger

February 18, 2018

Dear General Kelly:

Please accept Brief 218 from Field McConnell – United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – on Serco‘s CAI private equity investors including the late Gen. Alexander Haig, 7th SACEUR and former director of MGM, AOL and UTC and Yves Fortier former Nortel director, who allegedly tracked patentee SWAT teams with Imagis s/w and Nortel’s Joint Automated Booking System (JABS) through 9/11 death-pool junkets staged by Boeing Phantom Works with Exelis/ITT’s Methods and systems for remote control of self-propelled vehicles US6640164B1.

McConnell claims, that Haig and Kristine Marcy, McConnell’s sister and the founder of the U.S. Senior Executives Service (SES), Con Air (JPATS) and a USMS prisoner medical services program, embedded patented devices including Tencent (BVI) Limited’s Instant messaging [IM] system and method US 8566404 B and Howard Lutnick’s Real-time interactive wagering on event outcomes CA 2460367 A in government networks allegedly used by Clinton Foundation donors and Greek Life associates of George H. Bush (Phi Beta Kappa) and Wilbur Ross (Kappa Beta Phi) to bet on body counts as patentee SWAT teams allegedly hired by former ITT Exelis executive Dr. Pamela Drew flew Boeing 777ER aircraft of MH Flights 370 (239 dead) and 17 (298 dead) through ad hoc way points to final destinations in 2014.

McConnell claims that Fortier and Marcy embedded Nortel’s Method for efficient management of certificate revocation lists and update information US 5699431 A in FBI Virtual Command Centers (VCCs) and Law Enforcement Online (LEO) networks so Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell, former Marine Corps Captain, former FBI Executive Assistant Director – Investigations (SES-6) and Imagis [face-recognition] Technologies founder, could stand down law-enforcement or autopsy services at way point crime scenes before launching SWAT team attacks on the enemies of Serco bankers and Clinton Greek Life friends.

McConnell reminds you that Buck Revell (warned by Serco‘s British Invisibles?) is reported to have pulled his son and daughter-in-law off Pan Am Flight 103 just before takeoff from London’s Heathrow airport at 18:25 hours on 21 December 1988 (after McConnell told his Conair sister how to handle a prisoner mutiny by droning the aircraft) and saved them from a SMEAC* bombing event over Lockerbie, Scotland at 19:02:50 with its body count of 270 = 243 passengers + 16 crew + 11 people on ground.

*Serco alleged corruption of the Marine Corps SMEAC briefing protocols – Situation, Mission, Execution, Ambush, Cover-up

McConnell claims that Serco is using Two-way wireless system for financial industry transactions US 6539362 B1 to ‘drift’ proceeds of crimes including body-count wagering, snuff films (cf. BC pig farm & Starnet Comms.) and child pornography into Marcy’s DOJ Asset Forfeiture Funds and the private accounts of junket operators, promoters (late Stephen Paddock at MGM Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino!) and players associated with the late General Haig.

Given this is the 218th Kelly public briefing with ample opportunities for traitors and Serco agents to rebut our allegations of fraud upon patentees registered at the U.S. Patent and Trademark including Boeing, Exelis and Tencent (BVI) Limited and their extorted participation in mass-casualty wagering events, we ask you to have McConnell’s sister Kristine ‘Conair’ Marcy and Serco director Pamela Drew placed in protective custody to be questioned in re their apparent roles in way point death-pool events and the former Marine Corps Captain, Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell charged in the appropriate court under 18 U.S.C. § 2382 – Misprision of treason or 18 U.S.C. § 1958 – Murder-for-hire.

“Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 (MH370/MAS370)[a] was a scheduled international passenger flight that disappeared on 8 March 2014 while flying from Kuala Lumpur International Airport, Malaysia, to its destination, Beijing Capital International Airport in China. The aircraft has not been recovered, and the cause for the disappearance remains unknown.

The aircraft, a Boeing 777-200ER operated by Malaysia Airlines, last made voice contact with air traffic control at 01:19 MYT, 8 March (17:19 UTC, 7 March) when it was over the South China Sea, less than an hour after takeoff. The aircraft disappeared from air traffic controllers’ radar screens at 01:22 MYT, but was still tracked on military radar as it deviated westwards from its planned flight path and crossed the Malay Peninsula, until it left the range at 02:22 while over the Andaman Sea, 200 nautical miles (370 km) north-west of Penang in north-western Malaysia. The aircraft was carrying 12 Malaysian crew members and 227 passengers from 15 nations. The multinational search effort for the aircraft was the most expensive aviation search in history.[2][3][4] The search began in the Gulf of Thailand and the South China Sea, where the aircraft’s signal was last detected on secondary surveillance radar, and was soon extended to the Strait of Malacca and Andaman Sea. Analysis of satellite communications between the aircraft and Inmarsat’s satellite communications network concluded that the flight continued until at least 08:19 and flew south into the southern Indian Ocean, although the precise location cannot be determined. Australia took charge of the search on 17 March when the search moved to the southern Indian Ocean. On 24 March, the Malaysian government noted that the final location determined by the satellite communication is far from any possible landing sites, and concluded that “Flight MH370 ended in the southern Indian Ocean.”[5] From October 2014 to January 2017, a comprehensive survey of 120,000 km2 (46,000 sq mi) of sea floor about 1,800 km (1,100 mi) south-west of Perth, Western Australia yielded no evidence of the aircraft. Several pieces of marine debris found on the coast of Africa and on Indian Ocean islands off the coast of Africa—the first discovered on 29 July 2015 on Réunion—have been confirmed as pieces of Flight 370.[6][7][8][9] The bulk of the aircraft has not been located, prompting many theories about its disappearance. In January 2018, a second search has been announced to be conducted by a searching vessel provided by private U.S. marine company Ocean Infinity.[10] Later that month it was reported the tracking system showed the vessel had reached the search zone on January 21, and started moving to 35.6°S 92.8°E, the most likely crash site according to the drift study published in 2017.[11] The search was resumed on 22 January.[12]”

“Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 (MH17/MAS17)[a] was a scheduled passenger flight from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur that was shot down on 17 July 2014 while flying over eastern Ukraine, killing all 283 passengers and 15 crew on board.[2] Contact with the aircraft, a Boeing 777-200ER, was lost about 50 km (31 mi) from the Ukraine–Russia border and wreckage of the aircraft landed near Torez in Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine, 40 km (25 mi) from the border.[3] The crash occurred in an area controlled by the Donbass People’s Militiaduring the Battle in Shakhtarsk Raion, part of the ongoing war in Donbass.[4] The crash is the deadliest airliner shootdown, ninth-deadliest aviation disaster, and was Malaysia Airlines’ second aircraft loss during 2014 after the disappearance of Flight 370 on 8 March.[5]

In October 2015, the Dutch Safety Board (DSB) concluded that the airliner was downed by a Buk surface-to-air missile (NATO reporting name: SA-11 Gadfly) launched from pro-Russian separatist-controlled territory in Ukraine.[6][7] In September 2016, the Dutch-led Joint Investigation Team (JIT) confirmed the missile type which had downed the aircraft and said that the Buk missile system had been transported from Russia on the day of the crash, fired from a field in a rebel controlled area and returned to Russia after the Buk was used to shoot down MH17. The JIT had established the identities of approximately 100 people, witnesses or suspects, who were linked to the transporting of the Buk, but said that their evidence “must stand before a court”.[8]

The DSB and JIT findings confirmed earlier claims by American and German intelligence sources and the Ukrainian government as to the missile type and launch area. In 2014, Ukraine and US intelligence had also said that Russia had supplied the Buk missile to pro-Russian insurgents, who had mistakenly shot down the aircraft.[9][10][11][12] Also in 2014, German intelligence sources reported that they believed insurgents had stolen the missile from the Ukrainian military.[13][14][15]

Russian government sources initially claimed that the aircraft was being followed by a Ukrainian military jet at the time of the shootdown[10] and later that Ukraine was responsible since the crash had happened in Ukrainian airspace.[16] Several theories about the crash have since appeared in Russian media, and as of September 2016, the Russian government continues to deny responsibility for the crash.[8]

Immediately after the crash, a post appeared on the VKontakte social media profile attributed to Russian Colonel Igor Girkin, leader of the Donbass separatist militia, claiming responsibility for shooting down an AN-26 near Torez,[17] but later the same day the separatists denied involvement and the post was removed.[18][19][20] In late July 2014, communications intercepts were made public in which, it is claimed, separatists are heard discussing an aircraft that they had downed and later, their realisation that it was a civilian aircraft.[21][22][23]

Between November 2014 and May 2016, UK-based investigative collective Bellingcat made a series of conclusions, based on their examination of photos in social media and other open-source information. Bellingcat said that the launcher used to shoot down the aircraft was Buk 332 of the Russian 53rd Anti-Aircraft Rocket Brigade based in Kursk, Russia, which had been transported from Donetsk to Snizhne and was controlled by separatists in Ukraine on the day of the attack.[24][25][26][27][28]

In July 2015, Malaysia proposed that the United Nations Security Council set up an international tribunal to prosecute those deemed responsible for the downing of the plane. The Malaysian resolution gained a majority on the Security Council, but was vetoed by Russia.[29][30]”

“Boeing Phantom Works is the advanced prototyping arm of the defense and security side of The Boeing Company. Its primary focus is developing advanced military products and technologies, many of them highly classified.

Founded by McDonnell Douglas, the research and developmentgroup continued after Boeing acquired the company. Its logo is similar to one used for the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom fighter.

… Phantom Works’ organization mirrors that of Boeing’s Defense business units, with ‘Advanced’ versions of each unit (e.g. Advanced Boeing Military Aircraft). The underlying technology is provided by the Boeing Research and Technology (BR&T) organization, who develop new technologies (i.e. Technology Readiness Level 1–4) for use by Boeing’s Commercial and Defense units. Phantom Works responsibility is to grow those technologies into prototype (i.e. Technology Readiness Level 4–6) to then transition those prototypes to the business units to turn into products (i.e. Technology Readiness Level 7–9).

“Methods and systems for remote control of self-propelled vehicles
Abstract
A method and system for remote control of self-propelled vehicles includes a leader vehicle and at least one follower vehicle located behind the leader vehicle. The leader vehicle traverses a waypoint, determines a first set of GPS coordinates corresponding to the waypoint, and transmits the first set of GPS coordinates to the follower vehicle. The follower vehicle determines a second set of GPS coordinates corresponding to its own position and compares the first set of GPS coordinates to the second set of GPS coordinates. By controlling steering, drive and braking systems of the follower vehicle with a servo-actuator, the follower vehicle is guided toward the waypoint by minimizing the difference between the first and second sets of GPS coordinates. This process is repeated at a succession of waypoints such that the follower vehicle traverses the same course as the leader vehicle.

“Prior to SBA, [Field McConnell’s sister] Ms. [Kristine] Marcy served in several roles at the Department of Justice, including Senior Counsel for Detention and Deportation at the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), where she oversaw the full range of INS detention and deportation programs and addressed multiple infrastructure and management problems stemming from rapid growth (up 45 percent) in the detention program. Prior to her position at INS, Ms. Marcy served for five years as the Associate Director for Operations Support of the Department of Justice, U.S. Marshals Service (USMS). There, she directed DOJ’s detention program for more than 23,000 prisoners (the nation’s largest). In 1995, she was assigned responsibility by the Attorney General for developing a DOJ-wide transportation system known as the Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System, or JPATS-a nationwide network of leased commercial and government-owned aircraft and ground vehicles. While at the USMS, she also developed a prisoner medical services program and directed the agency’s $1.6 billion seized assets program that redirected proceeds forfeited by criminals and crime organizations to local and Federal law enforcement. Prior to the USMS, she was the Associate Deputy Attorney General for the Department of Justice, where she served as a lawyer who prepared the Deputy Attorney General for duties related to budget and appropriations, executive personnel, and other management areas. She also oversaw activities of the Justice Management Division, Bureau of Prisons, Office of Justice Programs, the Inspector General, and the U.S. Trustees (bankruptcy program).”

ABSTRACT
A method which allows implementation of the revocation of public-key certificates facilitates engineering of certificate revocation lists (CRLs). It solves the practical problem of CRLs potentially growing to unmanageable lengths by allowing CRLs to be segmented, based on size considerations or priority considerations related to revocation reasons. The method is used to distribute CRL information to users of certificate-based public-key systems. It is also applied more generally to update any field in a certificate by reference to a secondary source of authenticated information.

“Pansy Ho Chiu King, co-chairperson of Macau casino operator MGM China Holdings Ltd, said the firm would focus on the quality of its customers at the new property MGM Cotai (pictured), a casino resort built with facilities that can cater to “any sorts of events”. Ms Ho additionally said that she does not expect the firm’s VIP business to be cannibalised by other gaming operators, as the Cotai property nears completion. MGM China said in September that its under-construction casino resort on Cotai is on target to open on January 29, 2018. That is more than one year later than outlined in the original timetable presented by the company. The company currently operates a single property, MGM Macau, in the city’s traditional downtown casino district. The company’s chief executive Grant Bowie told Hong Kong media on Monday that the firm plans to have five junket operators at MGM Cotai, which could help with the ramp up of the new property. Mr Bowie had previously mentioned during a conference call on the firm’s third-quarter results that MGM Cotai would initially open offering only “in-house VIP” gaming; but the firm had a programme to add junkets “as quickly as” it could.”

“New Interpol head is Chinese former deputy head of paramilitary police force
Vice-minister Meng Hongwei’s election has sparked concerns his position may be used to boost China’s campaign to pursue dissidents around the globe

A Chinese security official has been elected head of the global police organization Interpol, sparking fears the move may be used to track down dissidents as well as alleged fugitives who have fled abroad.

Meng Hongwei, vice minister for public security since 2004 and the first Chinese to hold the post, will serve as president for four years after he was elected at an Interpol meeting in Indonesia, the agency announced on Twitter.

“This is extraordinarily worrying given China’s longstanding practice of trying to use Interpol to arrest dissidents and refugees abroad,” Nicholas Bequelin, east Asia director at Amnesty International, said on Twitter.

“The Chinese police have a terrible human rights record, including the endemic practice of coercing ‘confessions’ and the widespread use of torture,” Bequelin said separately in an interview.

“Unlike most law enforcement agencies around the world, the Chinese police have – in addition to the classic law and order mandate – a political mandate to protect the power of the Communist party.”

Meng was previously deputy director of China’s armed police, a paramilitary force that is often deployed to the country’s most unstable areas, including Tibet, the border with North Korea and the far western province of Xinjiang.

Li Wei, head of the anti-terrorism centre at China Institute of Contemporary International Relations, said: “As the head of Interpol, Meng Hongwei will deepen the fight against transnational crime.”

“But it is in China that Haig has carved out a special niche as a door opener for American companies. The general has been a steadfast advocate for China ever since he led the advance team for President Nixon’s historic 1972 visit. Later, as secretary of state, he earned the respect of the Chinese leadership by holding fast against the powerful Taiwan lobby in Washington. (He saw China as a useful ally in the struggle against the Soviet Union.) Haig continues to speak out for Beijing in his present role. Perhaps the most striking example came when he turned up at Tiananmen Square on October 1, 1989 — four months after the notorious crackdown — to mark the 40th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic. The only American to grace the proceedings that evening, Haig knew that the United States and all other Western ambassadors would be boycotting the event, but he shared the podium with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, who congratulated him on his courage in appearing.

“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.

The Ministry of Justice had said it would end the contract immediately if the firm’s board was found to have done wrong.

Serco agreed last year to repay all past profits and forgo any future profit on the PECS contract. The deal is due to run until August 2018 and involves Serco transporting prisoners to and from 24 Crown Courts, 43 Magistrates’ Courts, 24 prisons and 131 police stations.

The end of the investigation closes one chapter of Serco’s problems over the past few years. The company repaid £70m last year for overcharging the government on electronic tagging contracts, in a matter that was referred to the Serious Fraud Office.

The firm replaced its chief executive Chris Hyman with Rupert Soames in June, handing him the task of putting the firm back on an even keel. A rights issue is expected early next year to shore up Serco’s financial position.”

“Virtual Command Center
Real-Time Tool to Securely Monitor Criminal Incidents and Major Events Online
July 3, 2012
Originally published in the July 2012 edition of the CJIS Link, Volume 14, Number 2

.. In the modern law enforcement environment, agencies need to share information, collaborate, and join forces to combat crime and terrorism. Often they need to post, track, and spread information across departments and jurisdictions in a quick, secure way for an investigation or for a major occurrence. To satisfy this need for safe, inclusive communication, the LEO Operations Unit created the VCC capability in 2002. The LEO VCC is a situational awareness and/or crisis management tool used to share information about street-level and tactical activities among law enforcement operations centers and command posts. Since its inception, the VCC has been used by numerous agencies for local, national, and international events ranging from major case management to global events like presidential inaugurations.

Because the VCC resides on LEO, it is extremely flexible and can be used or viewed from multiple geographic locations. This makes it feasible for federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to create joint efforts in investigations and law enforcement actions. The VCC exists on a secure system for any designated audience members online, not just those physically present at an event or a “brick and mortar” command center. Through the VCC, law enforcement can effectively manage a tactical incident in real time, 24/7, with both operational and technical support. As the VCC receives and posts relevant information and intelligence, it provides a comprehensive account of an incident or event to designated law enforcement channels.

The VCC provides an events board feature that permits information posts as an event occurs and allows listing of data such as photographs, scanned documents, or any information that would be useful to managing an event or crisis. Agencies hosting the VCC can permit access to individual persons or entire agencies as needed. Even critical incident managers, such as emergency planners, can now have remote access to a crisis without having to be on-scene. Recent enhancements to the VCC capability include the ability to display incidents by specific dates or times, improved refresh rates on the screens, and improved critical real-time monitoring of operations.

The FBI and the law enforcement community as a whole have benefited from the increased ability to share vital information and collaborate—even over previously unmanageable locality impediments—by the creation of the VCC. In 2011, LEO members created over 300 new VCCs and opened over 700 VCC event boards to collect, record, and securely publish information. As an indication of its effectiveness and adaptability, the law enforcement community has used the VCC not only during kidnappings, shootings, and special investigations, but also during major events such as NASCAR races, Republican and Democratic National Conventions, a presidential inauguration, the Super Bowl, the Pro Bowl, the Academy Awards, and the Hurricane Katrina relief effort.”

Gas fraud soars; Alberta Premier shoots herself in the foot

Gas fraud soars: Time to take back the monopoly

Gangsters Out
January 30, 2018

CTV News is reporting that “Gas prices have spiked in parts of Western Canada this week, with some stations in Metro Vancouver charging $1.46 per litre on Friday. Soaring prices stunned commuters and analysts, leaving the latter confused over the timing of the spike.”

There is nothing shocking about the fraud spike. Corporate monopolies are never a good thing. They will charge consumers whatever the market can take. CBC is reporting that “Vancouver has traditionally been subject to the highest prices for gasoline anywhere in North America and this certainly is the case today,” said gas price analyst Dan McTeague.

It’s like the price of hockey tickets in Canada compared to the US. It’s the same hockey league. They charge more here simply because they can. Many years ago, when John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil used hostile takeovers to obtain a monopoly on the oil industry in the US, the Supreme Court cited antitrust laws and deemed that monopoly illegal. Times have changed. Now dirty politicians line their pockets with campaign contributions and say corporate monopolies are good. No they are not. They destroy the free market and the democratic system.

Corporate monopolies are also bad in the news industry because they destroy the freedom of the press. Today the Post Media News monopoly was working overtime on the propaganda in more ways than one. They cited one “analyst” and said we just have to get used to the spike in gas prices, trying to brainwash us into submission. No we do not. We could do what Norway did and nationalize our oil. That would make sense. The only time a corporate monopoly is good is when the consumers are shareholders in that monopoly. What we have now is NOT a free market.

Allowing the oil companies to form a monopoly was bad enough. Giving that monopoly to Communist China was even worse. It’s time to stop the fraud and take back the monopoly once and for all just like Norway did. That would be in consumers’ and taxpayers’ best interest.

What Canada and Alberta could learn from Norway

Surprisingly (to me anyway), I find myself agreeing with you about nationalization of Canada’s oil, but only as a way of neutralizing the treasonous sale of the rights to that and other natural resources to China. I guarantee you the politicians who made that happen got paid, but if I know the Chinese (and I do), they got sold for cheap.

A better alternative might be a government mandated fixed price at the pump. This would encourage efficiency on the part of the oil companies to be able to maximize their profits while having to sell at a certain price.

Nationalization is not necessarily a cure-all; witness the third-world countries where the government just loots that industry directly. What would stop people like Harper from selling a part of the national oil company directly as stock, such as Campbell did with BC Hydro? You have to realize, there is no EFFECTIVE medium at present for controlling scumbag politicians bent on taking as much as they can; THEY have their hands on the reins of power more directly than the electorate. Cause trouble and they’ll send the RCMP after you to protect themselves, and the RCMP will happily do their bidding in exchange for “we can do whatever we want”. The citizenry outnumber the state enforcers thousands to one, but they have been disarmed and brainwashed over decades not to ever even consider holding some treasonous scumbag politician like Campbell directly accountable. Indirectly, they stall, obfuscate, lie, and in the end their “committee” finds no wrongdoing, and the band plays on….

I promise you that if bad things happened to bad politicians, “pour encourager les autres”, those left would suddenly rediscover their duty to behave themselves. There is a reason that “making an example” is such a time-honored (but not recently) tradition: it’s because it works. But that’s not the modern Canadian way, and so as I said, the band plays on.

Where’s the Committee for Aesthetic Deletion when you really need them? 😉

It’s time for a national enquiry into fuel price fixing. In the meantime, Canadians need to start a fuel price protest group which would consist of a serious and sustained revolving boycott of the gas retailers. Monday’s could be Chevron, Tuesdays Shell, Wednesdays Petroleum Canada etc. I guarantee that missing revenue for a day would get the industry’s attention. Or we can just sit back on the couch with a doobie and a beer and take it all in just as they expect us to do! No wonder why we pay more than the rest of Canada.

e.a.f.

Ah yes, the sudden increase in the price of gas. It’s $1.30 or $1.33 per litre over on Vancouver Island. The day before $1.23 per litre.

For every dollar which goes into the pockets of oil companies, it’s a dollar not spent in local economies. They could pass a regulation requiring gas companies to give two weeks’ notice of price increases at least.

Of course it’s a monopoly. That is not going to change. Trudeau Sr. tried it with Petro Canada and we know how that turned out. They still talk about it in Alberta.
We don’t have to get used to it. We produce the stuff. We ought to have our own refineries so Canada can control the price. Right now, too much money is leaving the country and there is too much outside control. Foreign ownership of our natural resources needs to be eliminated. It won’t end well for Canadians if that continues. All that tar being sent by pipeline through B.C. and then refined elsewhere. Hell, we wind up buying it back one way or another. Not good practices for the people of this country. If we kept it for our own use, we wouldn’t have to worry about fouling our coastline because of tanker spills.

Alberta Premier shoots herself in the foot

February 9, 2018

Well, this is sadly unfortunate. I was going to sit this one out but the Alberta Premier’s folly has forced me to weigh in and declare all bets are off. Justin Trudeau came to Vancouver Island to face the environmental opposition to a second pipeline in BC head-on. At that time, I thought the environmentalists were being petty and that twinning an existing pipeline was better than cutting a new pipeline through an old-growth forest. I felt it represented a fair compromise.

A restaurant owner in Alberta said they were going to boycott BC wine because the BC government has expressed concerns about the volume of toxic oil sand bitumen that travels through BC. That was pretty petty and childish but I chose to ignore it because it was just one restaurant owner. Having worked in that industry, I know very well that there is a slim profit margin after food cost and labour costs. That industry benefits from tourism. Do you think I will ever eat at that restaurant now? Not a snowball’s chance in hell. Now that the Alberta Premier is foolish enough to repeat that pledge, I am now forced to weigh in.

The Vancouver Sun is reporting that “Tuesday, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley said the agency of her government that is the provincial wholesaler of alcohol will stop buying B.C. wine.” AYFKM? What a stupid child. Do you think you are some kind of trade union that will bring us to our knees by going on strike? You are delusional. That is not how things work in the real world.

Trade agreements are built upon mutual respect. No one likes arrogant entitlement. This is our home. We have a right to protect it. What does Alberta have to attract tourism? The oil sands. Come and see our toxic cesspool everyone. It’s a great place to visit. Not. We have pristine oceans and forests that we want to protect. Banff and Lake Louise, Alberta, is wonderful. The people there respect the environment because they live in a paradise like we do, as opposed to a toxic dump.

BC Premier John Horgan has every right to express a concern about the amount of bitumen that passes through BC because it isn’t just oil, it is toxic oil sand sludge that requires a significant amount of refining. Refining Alberta tar sands bitumen produces petroleum coke as a byproduct. This created a mountain of toxic waste in Detroit, which I previously reported on.

The Guardian reported that “It was the dirty secret of Alberta’s tar sands – until the black mountain of petroleum coke on the banks of the Detroit River grew to occupy an entire city block three storeys high.” Any responsible human being needs to discuss what we are going to do with that toxic byproduct.

When the Premier of Alberta stomps her feet like a spoilt child demanding entitlement, I say negotiations are over. I was on your side but you just lost my support. All bets are off. You lost the Northern Gateway project and now you just lost this one too. Now you will have to build your tar sands pipeline out east. We don’t want it anymore. Go f*ck yourself. No really. Take your petroleum coke and cram it up your a*s. This deal is dead in the water.

Chicago had the same problem Detroit did. Huge mountains of petroleum coke left over from refining dirty Alberta tar sands bitumen. They succeeded in getting rid of the petcoke mountains by shipping it to India. Only India doesn’t want it any more either because it is even more toxic than coal. Now Alberta wants to cram it on us, claiming we do not have a right to express concerns. Yes we do. Just like everyone else has.

Quebec activists buy up B.C. wine in solidarity with the West Coast. Quebec has twice the population that Alberta does. It is a much larger market for BC wine. Je me souviens.

CTV is reporting that “An organic chardonnay icewine bottled in Kelowna, B.C. came in first in an international competition hosted in France. Summerhill Pyramid Winery’s 2014 vintage beat out more than 700 entries for its spot at the top of the list, and was the only Canadian product in the competition’s top 10. The majority of the other bottles in the Chardonnay du Monde’s top 10 were from France, though second place went to a bottle from Spain, third was South African and fourth was Austrian.” France is the centre of the world when it comes to wine. However, BC puts out some affordable credible wines. The Wines of British Columbia.

Kelly 217: Serco Opioid Uber Piston Patents, Clinton IM Shooter Wagers, Con Air SWAT Team Buck

General John F. Kelly
White House Chief of Staff
Washington, D.C. 20528

Open letter from the Cloud Centric Crime Scene Investigators of Abel Danger

February 17, 2018

Dear General Kelly:

Please accept Brief 217 from Field McConnell – United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – on Serco‘s CAI private equity investors including the late General Alexander Haig, 7th SACEUR and former director of MGM, AOL, UTC and Interneuron Pharmaceuticals, and Yves Fortier former Nortel director, who allegedly embedded Imagis software into Nortel’s Joint Automated Booking System (JABS) to infiltrate patentee SWAT teams into crime scenes such as the Pentagon’s U.S. Navy Command Center, Washington D.C. on 9/11 or the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018 when 17 people were killed allegedly by Nikolas Cruz, a patsy apparently over- or under- medicated with the equivalent of Endo Pharmaceuticals’ (formerly Interneuron Pharmaceuticals) Abuse-resistant controlled-release opioid dosage form US20080069881; apparently moving on a timeline tracked by Uber Technologies, Inc.’s System event analyzer and outlier visualization 9794158 and apparently carrying a Gas piston system for m16/ar15 rifle or m4 carbine systems US8893608B2.

McConnell claims, that Haig and Kristine Marcy, McConnell’s sister and the founder of the U.S. Senior Executives Service (SES), Con Air (JPATS) and a USMS prisoner medical services program, embedded patented devices including Tencent (BVI) Limited’s Instant messaging [IM] system and method US 8566404 B and Howard Lutnick’s Real-time interactive wagering on event outcomes CA 2460367 A in government networks allegedly used by Clinton Foundation donors and Greek Life associates of George H. Bush (Phi Beta Kappa) and Wilbur Ross (Kappa Beta Phi) to bet on body counts during mass shootings staged with patsies such as the late Adam Lanza at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CN (27 people apparently killed) on December 14, 2012 or by Nikolas Cruz at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018 .

McConnell claims that Fortier and Marcy embedded Nortel’s Method for efficient management of certificate revocation lists and update information US 5699431 A in FBI Virtual Command Centers (VCCs) and Law Enforcement Online (LEO) networks so Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell, former Marine Corps Captain, former FBI Executive Assistant Director – Investigations (SES-6) and Imagis [face-recognition] Technologies founder, could stand down law-enforcement or autopsy services at crime scenes before launching Conair SWAT team attacks on the enemies of Serco and the Clintons’ Greek Life friends.

McConnell reminds you that Buck Revell (warned by Serco‘s British Invisibles?) is reported to have pulled his son and daughter-in-law off Pan Am Flight 103 just before takeoff from London’s Heathrow airport at 18:25 hours on 21 December 1988 (after McConnell told his Conair sister how to handle a prisoner mutiny by droning the aircraft) and saved them from a SMEAC* bombing event over Lockerbie, Scotland at 19:02:50 with its body count of 270 = 243 passengers + 16 crew + 11 people on ground.

*Serco alleged corruption of the Marine Corps SMEAC briefing protocols – Situation, Mission, Execution, Ambush, Cover-up

McConnell claims that Serco is using Two-way wireless system for financial industry transactions US 6539362 B1 to ‘drift’ proceeds of crimes including body-count wagering, snuff films (cf. BC pig farm & Starnet Comms.) and child pornography into Marcy’s DOJ Asset Forfeiture Funds and private accounts of junket operators, promoters (late Stephen Paddock!) and players associated with the late General Haig.

Given this is the 217th Kelly public briefing with ample opportunities for traitors and Serco agents to rebut our allegations of fraud upon patentees registered at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office including Uber Technologies, Inc. and Tencent (BVI) Limited and their extorted participation in mass-casualty wagering events, we ask you to have McConnell’s sister Kristine ‘Conair’ Marcy placed in protective custody to be questioned and the former Marine Corps Captain, Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell charged in the appropriate court under 18 U.S.C. § 2382 – Misprision of treason or 18 U.S.C. § 1958 – Murder-for-hire.

“Social media paints picture of racist ‘professional school shooter’
By Eliott C. McLaughlin and Madison Park, CNN
Updated 9:59 PM ET, Thu February 15, 2018
Trump did not mention guns in response

(CNN)On social media, Nikolas Cruz did not appear to be a peaceful man. He made quite clear his desire to perpetrate the exact type of violence of which he now stands accused.

Before he allegedly committed one of the worst mass shootings in US history at a Parkland, Florida, high school on Wednesday, police officials say Cruz wrote social media posts so threatening he was reported to the FBI.

He hurled slurs at blacks and Muslims, and according to the Anti-Defamation League, had ties to white supremacists. He said he would shoot people with his AR-15 and singled out police and anti-fascist protesters as deserving of his vengeance. Just five months ago, he stated his aspiration to become a “professional school shooter.”

Yet on the morning of the massacre, the family that took the 19-year-old into their home didn’t notice anything terribly strange about the young man’s behavior, the family’s attorney said Thursday.

Nikolas Cruz stands charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder.

The only thing abnormal was that he didn’t get up for his adult GED class. Normally, the father would take him to class on the way to work, but when they tried to wake Cruz up Wednesday, he said something like, “It’s Valentine’s Day. I don’t go to school on Valentine’s Day,” according to the lawyer.

“They just blew it off,” attorney Jim Lewis said. “This is some 19-year-old that didn’t want to get up and go to school that day, and (they) left it at that.”

The family took Cruz in last year after his adoptive mother died. Cruz was depressed, Lewis said. The family’s son knew Cruz, so they opened their home, got him into a GED class and helped him get a job at a Dollar Tree, the lawyer said.

“He seemed to be doing better,” Lewis said.

FBI acknowledges receiving shooting warning 00:39

Before the mass shooting that left 17 adults and children dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Cruz had exchanged texts with the son, who was a student there.

Lewis characterized the texts as, “How you doing? What’s going on? Yo, you coming over later? That kind of stuff. Nothing to indicate anything bad was going to happen.”

Cruz had a gun. The family knew that, but they had established rules. He had to keep it in a lockbox in his room. Cruz had the key to the lockbox, the attorney said.

“This family did what they thought was right, which was take in a troubled kid and try to help him, and that doesn’t mean he can’t bring his stuff into their house. They had it locked up and believed that that was going to be sufficient, that there wasn’t going to be a problem. Nobody saw this kind of aggression or motive in this kid, that he would ever do anything like this,” Lewis said.

Writing on the wall?

While the family didn’t see any signs that Cruz might perpetrate the deadliest school shooting since Sandy Hook in 2012, it appears others saw worrying indicators.

Lewis mentioned Cruz suffered from depression. Cruz had been expelled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas. A former classmate said Cruz had shown him guns, and other students say they worried he was violent.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel alluded to Cruz’s mental fitness during a news conference, while Broward County Mayor Beam Furr said the teen “had been dealing with mental health issues.”

“He had been undergoing some treatment. We can’t go into detail on that,” Furr said. “I don’t know if he was exactly on law enforcement’s radar, but it wasn’t like there wasn’t concern for him. He had not been back to the clinic for over a year, so there’s been a time where he was receiving treatment and then stopped.”

Lewis said Cruz was a loner and “a little quirky,” and the family hosting him knew there had been some disciplinary problems and fights, but Cruz had never expressed any discontent toward his former teachers or classmates.

“He was a smaller kid and (there’s) some indication there might have been some bullying going on, but again, he’d been away from the school for over a year and had never shared with them any contempt for the school or anybody here — no anger, just a lot of depression and stuff going on around the loss of his mother,” the lawyer said.

Lewis continued, “They didn’t see a mentally ill person or they never would’ve let him live under their (roof). … They did not see any danger. They didn’t see any kind of predilection that this was going to happen and they’re horrified just like everyone else.”

Cruz’s digital footprint

Cruz’s social media posts paint what Israel called a “very, very disturbing” picture.

Israel said Cruz’s digital profile contains troubling content that included a variety of gun- and violence-related posts on social media.

A user going by the name of Nikolas Cruz also included slurs against blacks and Muslims in his posts.

A law enforcement source said authorities are aware of Cruz’s extremist views on social media. The investigation is in early stages and so they are gathering information. One question for investigators is whether Cruz simply espoused extremist views and used related language or was in fact tied to any groups.

Cruz’s disturbing behavior also included several threatening comments under videos on YouTube and other sites. They include:

“I whana shoot people with my AR-15”

“I wanna die Fighting killing s**t ton of people”

“I am going to kill law enforcement one day they go after the good people.”

In September, a YouTube user going by Nikolas Cruz posted a comment to a vlogger’s YouTube page, saying, “Im going to be a professional school shooter.” A law enforcement official confirms the FBI received a report about the post.

A law enforcement official told CNN earlier Thursday the FBI had received two reports regarding potential threats from the shooter.

But later Thursday, a separate law enforcement official said authorities believe they only received one report, regarding the comment on YouTube. The investigation is in its early stages, the source said, and information could change as leads are investigated.

On his Instagram page, Cruz posted a photo of a shotgun. In another photo he brandishes what appears to be a BB gun. In other pictures, he is covering his face with a kerchief and brandishing long knives.

Police say Cruz was armed with multiple magazines and at least one AR-15 style rifle. The suspected shooter bought the firearm in the past year and had passed the background check to make the purchase, according to a US official briefed on the investigation.

His host family knew nothing of his social media activity, Lewis said.

“They’re not social media people. They’re parents. They’re just not that kind of folks. And he’s an adult, and they tried to help him. But did they check up on him and follow him every minute of every day? They didn’t, because they didn’t see any of the signs that would indicate that there was anything really amiss, that he was capable of something violent,” he said.

His school life

Cruz was expelled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for disciplinary reasons, Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie said without elaborating. The teen was transferred to another school in the county because of “issues that arose,” Runcie said.

Cruz usually kept to himself but “once given the opportunity, he liked to talk,” said Brandon Minoff, a senior who was assigned to a group project with Cruz during sophomore year.

“He always just seemed very quiet and strange,” Minoff said.

Minoff initially tried to avoid Cruz, he said, “but when I got assigned to work with him, he started talking to me.”

“He told me how he got kicked out of two private schools. He was held back twice. He had aspirations to join the military. He enjoyed hunting,” the high school senior said.

Cruz appears to have been involved in the high school’s Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program, as his name is listed under several awards in 2016, including academic achievement for maintaining an A grade in JROTC and Bs in other subjects.

He also was awarded for presenting an outstanding appearance and outstanding conduct throughout school.

His family life

Cruz was adopted by Lynda Cruz, said Kathie Blaine, her cousin. She died November 1 after battling the flu and pneumonia, Blaine said. Cruz’s father had died of a heart attack more than a decade prior.

Blaine said she last saw Lynda Cruz about 20 years ago and had never met Nikolas Cruz.

“I don’t understand it anymore than anyone else does. I can’t believe it. I can’t believe any of these school shootings,” she said.

His classmate’s family took him in about a week after Thanksgiving, Lewis said.

“They had a room. He really had no other options and they brought him in,” he said.

As Cruz sat in Broward County Jail without bond on Thursday, charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder and awaiting his first court appearance, the family continued cooperating with police, the attorney said.

“Their home is being turned inside out,” Lewis said. “We were down there late talking to them, answering all the police questions, showing them phones. They opened their house up. … This family and the son have cooperated with law enforcement every which way they can.”

“They care about this kid. They took him into the home,” the attorney said, “but, as the mother told me, if they had any inkling … that this kid was capable of something like this, they never would’ve brought him into their home.”

Update: This story has been updated with new information about the shooter’s extremist views and whether he had ties to any specific groups.

CNN’s Ray Sanchez, Alisyn Camerota, Evan Perez, Chris Boyette, Amanda Jackson, Jamiel Lynch, Nicole Williams and Don Lemon contributed to this report.”

Abuse-resistant controlled-release opioid dosage form
Publication number: 20080069881
Abstract: Abuse-resistant, controlled release opioid tablets are a combination containing an opioid antagonist such as naloxone at a level above that needed to suppress the euphoric effect of the opioid, if the combination were crushed to break the controlled release properties causing the opioid and opioid antagonist to be released as an immediate release product as a single dose. The controlled release nature of the tablet prevents the accumulation of orally effective amounts of opioid antagonist when taken normally. The opioid antagonist is contained in a controlled-release matrix and released, over time, with the opioid.

Abstract: An event analysis system receives events in a time-series from a set of monitored systems and identifies a set of alert threshold values for each of the types of events to identify outliers in the time-series at an evaluated time. Portions of historic event data is selected to identify windows of event data near the evaluated time at a set of seasonally-adjusted times to predict the value of the event type. The alert threshold value may also account for a prediction based on recent, higher-frequency events. Using the alert threshold values for a plurality of event types, the event data is compared with the alert threshold values to determine an alert level for the data. The event data types are also clustered and displayed with the alert levels to provide a visualization of the event data and identify outliers when the new event data is received.

“Adam Lanza Documents Released, But Still No Toxicology Test Results
Gather.com – March 29,2013
by Renee Nal
One of the first people to “draw a potential connection between acts of deadly violence and psychiatric medication” was Neurosurgeon and CNN contributor Sanjay Gupta, MD. He asked, “…what medications, if any, he was on, and specifically I’m talking about antidepressants… If you look at the studies on other shootings like this that have happened, medications like this were a common factor…over a seven-year period, there were 11,000 episodes of violence related to drug side effects.”

It is surprising that the ongoing calls (and even an online petition) for Lanza’s toxicology test results are seemingly ignored.

Despite Adam Lanza’s known mental illness and the fact that most of the mass shootings in recent years have involved some form of medication for mental illness; officials have not seen fit to release his toxicology report, which could provide insight into the Sandy Hook Shooter’s mindset.

Most of the news coverage has focused on the “veritable arsenal” documented in the search warrants and other documents, which were recently released by prosecutors. While this development is significant; it is frustrating that there is still no indication of whether the Sandy Hook shooter was on medication at the time of the horrific mass shooting in December. It is even more frustrating that the mainstream media does not seem to be the least bit curious about drugs he may have been taking at the time.

Democrat Gov. Daniel P. Malloy said recently that he was “bewildered” by requests for more information to be released about Lanza, which is shocking considering the various gun-control and mental health legislation being prompted by the mass shooting. Of course, all relevant information should be made public. It is surprising that the ongoing calls (and even an online petition) for Lanza’s toxicology test results are seemingly ignored.”

“Prior to SBA, [Field McConnell’s sister] Ms. [Kristine] Marcy served in several roles at the Department of Justice, including Senior Counsel for Detention and Deportation at the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), where she oversaw the full range of INS detention and deportation programs and addressed multiple infrastructure and management problems stemming from rapid growth (up 45 percent) in the detention program. Prior to her position at INS, Ms. Marcy served for five years as the Associate Director for Operations Support of the Department of Justice, U.S. Marshals Service (USMS). There, she directed DOJ’s detention program for more than 23,000 prisoners (the nation’s largest). In 1995, she was assigned responsibility by the Attorney General for developing a DOJ-wide transportation system known as the Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System, or JPATS-a nationwide network of leased commercial and government-owned aircraft and ground vehicles. While at the USMS, she also developed a prisoner medical services program and directed the agency’s $1.6 billion seized assets program that redirected proceeds forfeited by criminals and crime organizations to local and Federal law enforcement. Prior to the USMS, she was the Associate Deputy Attorney General for the Department of Justice, where she served as a lawyer who prepared the Deputy Attorney General for duties related to budget and appropriations, executive personnel, and other management areas. She also oversaw activities of the Justice Management Division, Bureau of Prisons, Office of Justice Programs, the Inspector General, and the U.S. Trustees (bankruptcy program).”

“Method for efficient management of certificate revocation lists and update information
US 5699431 A
ABSTRACT
A method which allows implementation of the revocation of public-key certificates facilitates engineering of certificate revocation lists (CRLs). It solves the practical problem of CRLs potentially growing to unmanageable lengths by allowing CRLs to be segmented, based on size considerations or priority considerations related to revocation reasons. The method is used to distribute CRL information to users of certificate-based public-key systems. It is also applied more generally to update any field in a certificate by reference to a secondary source of authenticated information.

“Pansy Ho Chiu King, co-chairperson of Macau casino operator MGM China Holdings Ltd, said the firm would focus on the quality of its customers at the new property MGM Cotai (pictured), a casino resort built with facilities that can cater to “any sorts of events”. Ms Ho additionally said that she does not expect the firm’s VIP business to be cannibalised by other gaming operators, as the Cotai property nears completion. MGM China said in September that its under-construction casino resort on Cotai is on target to open on January 29, 2018. That is more than one year later than outlined in the original timetable presented by the company. The company currently operates a single property, MGM Macau, in the city’s traditional downtown casino district. The company’s chief executive Grant Bowie told Hong Kong media on Monday that the firm plans to have five junket operators at MGM Cotai, which could help with the ramp up of the new property. Mr Bowie had previously mentioned during a conference call on the firm’s third-quarter results that MGM Cotai would initially open offering only “in-house VIP” gaming; but the firm had a programme to add junkets “as quickly as” it could.”

Meng Hongwei, vice minister for public security since 2004 and the first Chinese to hold the post, will serve as president for four years after he was elected at an Interpol meeting in Indonesia, the agency announced on Twitter.

“This is extraordinarily worrying given China’s longstanding practice of trying to use Interpol to arrest dissidents and refugees abroad,” Nicholas Bequelin, east Asia director at Amnesty International, said on Twitter.

“The Chinese police have a terrible human rights record, including the endemic practice of coercing ‘confessions’ and the widespread use of torture,” Bequelin said separately in an interview.

“Unlike most law enforcement agencies around the world, the Chinese police have – in addition to the classic law and order mandate – a political mandate to protect the power of the Communist party.”

Meng was previously deputy director of China’s armed police, a paramilitary force that is often deployed to the country’s most unstable areas, including Tibet, the border with North Korea and the far western province of Xinjiang.

Li Wei, head of the anti-terrorism centre at China Institute of Contemporary International Relations, said: “As the head of Interpol, Meng Hongwei will deepen the fight against transnational crime.”

“But it is in China that Haig has carved out a special niche as a door opener for American companies. The general has been a steadfast advocate for China ever since he led the advance team for President Nixon’s historic 1972 visit. Later, as secretary of state, he earned the respect of the Chinese leadership by holding fast against the powerful Taiwan lobby in Washington. (He saw China as a useful ally in the struggle against the Soviet Union.) Haig continues to speak out for Beijing in his present role. Perhaps the most striking example came when he turned up at Tiananmen Square on October 1, 1989 — four months after the notorious crackdown — to mark the 40th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic. The only American to grace the proceedings that evening, Haig knew that the United States and all other Western ambassadors would be boycotting the event, but he shared the podium with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, who congratulated him on his courage in appearing.

He was a member of “The Executive Session on Policing”, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, 1987-1991.

Lockerbie bombing

Disaster warning

On 21 December 1988, shortly before Pan Am Flight 103 took off from London’s Heathrow airport at 18:25 hours, FBI Assistant Director Oliver “Buck” Revell reportedly rushed out onto the tarmac and pulled his son and daughter-in-law off the plane. The Lockerbie bombing was not the first time authorities were warned of an impending terrorist attack. The situation would repeat itself five years later in New York City, and seven years later in Oklahoma. It was an all too eerie coincidence.

“The five paragraph order or five paragraph field order is a style of organizing information about a military situation for a unit in the field. It is an element of United States Army, United States Marine Corps and United States Navy Seabees of small unit tactics, and similar order styles are used by military groups around the world. An order specifies the instruction to a unit in a structured format that makes it easy to find each specific requirement. The five paragraphs can be remembered with the acronym SMEAC: “S” Situation, “M” Mission, “E” Execution, “A” Administration/Logistics, “C” Command/Signal.”

“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.

The Ministry of Justice had said it would end the contract immediately if the firm’s board was found to have done wrong.

Serco agreed last year to repay all past profits and forgo any future profit on the PECS contract. The deal is due to run until August 2018 and involves Serco transporting prisoners to and from 24 Crown Courts, 43 Magistrates’ Courts, 24 prisons and 131 police stations.

The end of the investigation closes one chapter of Serco’s problems over the past few years. The company repaid £70m last year for overcharging the government on electronic tagging contracts, in a matter that was referred to the Serious Fraud Office.

The firm replaced its chief executive Chris Hyman with Rupert Soames in June, handing him the task of putting the firm back on an even keel. A rights issue is expected early next year to shore up Serco’s financial position.”

“Nortel Government Solutions, in collaboration with the Department of Justice (DOJ), built the Joint Automated Booking System (JABS) — a centralized system for automating the collection of fingerprint, photographic and biographic data, submitting this data to the FBI, and sharing it with participating law enforcement agencies nationwide.”

“Virtual Command Center
Real-Time Tool to Securely Monitor Criminal Incidents and Major Events Online
July 3, 2012
Originally published in the July 2012 edition of the CJIS Link, Volume 14, Number 2

.. In the modern law enforcement environment, agencies need to share information, collaborate, and join forces to combat crime and terrorism. Often they need to post, track, and spread information across departments and jurisdictions in a quick, secure way for an investigation or for a major occurrence. To satisfy this need for safe, inclusive communication, the LEO Operations Unit created the VCC capability in 2002. The LEO VCC is a situational awareness and/or crisis management tool used to share information about street-level and tactical activities among law enforcement operations centers and command posts. Since its inception, the VCC has been used by numerous agencies for local, national, and international events ranging from major case management to global events like presidential inaugurations.

Because the VCC resides on LEO, it is extremely flexible and can be used or viewed from multiple geographic locations. This makes it feasible for federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to create joint efforts in investigations and law enforcement actions. The VCC exists on a secure system for any designated audience members online, not just those physically present at an event or a “brick and mortar” command center. Through the VCC, law enforcement can effectively manage a tactical incident in real time, 24/7, with both operational and technical support. As the VCC receives and posts relevant information and intelligence, it provides a comprehensive account of an incident or event to designated law enforcement channels.

The VCC provides an events board feature that permits information posts as an event occurs and allows listing of data such as photographs, scanned documents, or any information that would be useful to managing an event or crisis. Agencies hosting the VCC can permit access to individual persons or entire agencies as needed. Even critical incident managers, such as emergency planners, can now have remote access to a crisis without having to be on-scene. Recent enhancements to the VCC capability include the ability to display incidents by specific dates or times, improved refresh rates on the screens, and improved critical real-time monitoring of operations.

The FBI and the law enforcement community as a whole have benefited from the increased ability to share vital information and collaborate—even over previously unmanageable locality impediments—by the creation of the VCC. In 2011, LEO members created over 300 new VCCs and opened over 700 VCC event boards to collect, record, and securely publish information. As an indication of its effectiveness and adaptability, the law enforcement community has used the VCC not only during kidnappings, shootings, and special investigations, but also during major events such as NASCAR races, Republican and Democratic National Conventions, a presidential inauguration, the Super Bowl, the Pro Bowl, the Academy Awards, and the Hurricane Katrina relief effort.”

Kelly 216: Serco Opioid Abuse Patents, Clinton School Of Shooter Wagers, Con Air SWAT With Buck

General John F. Kelly
White House Chief of Staff
Washington, D.C. 20528

Open letter from the Cloud Centric Crime Scene Investigators of Abel Danger

February 16, 2018

Dear General Kelly:

Please accept Brief 215 from Field McConnell – United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – on Serco‘s CAI private equity investors including the late General Alexander Haig, 7th SACEUR and former director of MGM, UTC, AOL and Interneuron Pharmaceuticals, and Yves Fortier former Nortel director, who allegedly use Imagis Technologies software and Nortel’s Joint Automated Booking System (JABS) to deploy patentee SWAT teams to mass-casualty events triggered by patsies medicated by drugs such as Endo Pharmaceuticals’ (formerly Interneuron Pharmaceuticals) Abuse-resistant controlled-release opioid dosage form US20080069881.

McConnell claims, that Haig and Kristine Marcy, McConnell’s sister and the founder of the U.S. Senior Executives Service (SES), Con Air (JPATS) and a USMS prisoner medical services program, embedded patented devices including Tencent (BVI) Limited’s Instant messaging system and method US 8566404 B and Howard Lutnick’s Real-time interactive wagering on event outcomes CA 2460367 A in government networks which have allegedly allowed Clinton Foundation donors and Greek Life associates of George H. Bush (Phi Beta Kappa) and Wilbur Ross (Kappa Beta Phi) to bet on body counts during school-shooter attacks apparently triggered but not necessarily executed by medicated patsies such as the late Adam Lanza at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut (27 people killed) on December 14, 2012 and by Nikolas Cruz at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida (17 people killed) on February 14, 2018.

McConnell claims that Fortier and Marcy embedded Nortel’s Method for efficient management of certificate revocation lists and update information US 5699431 A in FBI Virtual Command Centers (VCCs) and Law Enforcement Online (LEO) networks so Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell, former Marine Corps Captain, former FBI Executive Assistant Director – Investigations (SES-6) and Imagis [face-recognition] Technologies founder, could stand down law-enforcement or autopsy services at prospective crime scenes before launching Conair SWAT team attacks on the enemies of Serco partners and the Clintons’ Greek Life friends.

McConnell reminds you that Buck Revell (warned by Serco‘s British Invisibles?) is reported to have pulled his son and daughter-in-law off Pan Am Flight 103 just before takeoff from London’s Heathrow airport at 18:25 hours on 21 December 1988 (after McConnell told his Conair sister how to handle a prisoner mutiny by droning the aircraft) and saved them from a SMEAC* bombing event over Lockerbie, Scotland at 19:02:50 with its body count of 270 = 243 passengers + 16 crew + 11 people on ground.

*Serco alleged corruption of the Marine Corps SMEAC briefing protocols – Situation, Mission, Execution, Ambush, Cover-up

McConnell claims that Serco is using Two-way wireless system for financial industry transactions US 6539362 B1 to ‘drift’ proceeds of crimes including body-count wagering, snuff films (cf. BC pig farm & Starnet Comms.) and child pornography into Marcy’s DOJ Asset Forfeiture Funds and private accounts of junket operators, promoters (late Stephen Paddock!) and players associated with the late General Haig.

Given this is the 216th Kelly public briefing with ample opportunities for traitors and Serco agents to rebut our allegations of fraud upon patentees registered at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office including Endo Pharmaceuticals and Tencent, and subsequently-extorted participation in mass-casualty wagering events, we ask you to have McConnell’s sister Kristine ‘Conair’ Marcy placed in protective custody where she can be questioned and the former Marine Corps Captain, Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell charged in the appropriate court under 18 U.S.C. § 2382 – Misprision of treason or 18 U.S.C. § 1958 – Murder-for-hire.

“Social media paints picture of racist ‘professional school shooter’
By Eliott C. McLaughlin and Madison Park, CNN
Updated 9:59 PM ET, Thu February 15, 2018
Trump did not mention guns in response

(CNN)On social media, Nikolas Cruz did not appear to be a peaceful man. He made quite clear his desire to perpetrate the exact type of violence of which he now stands accused.

Before he allegedly committed one of the worst mass shootings in US history at a Parkland, Florida, high school on Wednesday, police officials say Cruz wrote social media posts so threatening he was reported to the FBI.

He hurled slurs at blacks and Muslims, and according to the Anti-Defamation League, had ties to white supremacists. He said he would shoot people with his AR-15 and singled out police and anti-fascist protesters as deserving of his vengeance. Just five months ago, he stated his aspiration to become a “professional school shooter.”

Yet on the morning of the massacre, the family that took the 19-year-old into their home didn’t notice anything terribly strange about the young man’s behavior, the family’s attorney said Thursday.

Nikolas Cruz stands charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder.

The only thing abnormal was that he didn’t get up for his adult GED class. Normally, the father would take him to class on the way to work, but when they tried to wake Cruz up Wednesday, he said something like, “It’s Valentine’s Day. I don’t go to school on Valentine’s Day,” according to the lawyer.

“They just blew it off,” attorney Jim Lewis said. “This is some 19-year-old that didn’t want to get up and go to school that day, and (they) left it at that.”

The family took Cruz in last year after his adoptive mother died. Cruz was depressed, Lewis said. The family’s son knew Cruz, so they opened their home, got him into a GED class and helped him get a job at a Dollar Tree, the lawyer said.

“He seemed to be doing better,” Lewis said.

FBI acknowledges receiving shooting warning 00:39

Before the mass shooting that left 17 adults and children dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Cruz had exchanged texts with the son, who was a student there.

Lewis characterized the texts as, “How you doing? What’s going on? Yo, you coming over later? That kind of stuff. Nothing to indicate anything bad was going to happen.”

Cruz had a gun. The family knew that, but they had established rules. He had to keep it in a lockbox in his room. Cruz had the key to the lockbox, the attorney said.

“This family did what they thought was right, which was take in a troubled kid and try to help him, and that doesn’t mean he can’t bring his stuff into their house. They had it locked up and believed that that was going to be sufficient, that there wasn’t going to be a problem. Nobody saw this kind of aggression or motive in this kid, that he would ever do anything like this,” Lewis said.

Writing on the wall?

While the family didn’t see any signs that Cruz might perpetrate the deadliest school shooting since Sandy Hook in 2012, it appears others saw worrying indicators.

Lewis mentioned Cruz suffered from depression. Cruz had been expelled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas. A former classmate said Cruz had shown him guns, and other students say they worried he was violent.

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel alluded to Cruz’s mental fitness during a news conference, while Broward County Mayor Beam Furr said the teen “had been dealing with mental health issues.”

“He had been undergoing some treatment. We can’t go into detail on that,” Furr said. “I don’t know if he was exactly on law enforcement’s radar, but it wasn’t like there wasn’t concern for him. He had not been back to the clinic for over a year, so there’s been a time where he was receiving treatment and then stopped.”

Lewis said Cruz was a loner and “a little quirky,” and the family hosting him knew there had been some disciplinary problems and fights, but Cruz had never expressed any discontent toward his former teachers or classmates.

“He was a smaller kid and (there’s) some indication there might have been some bullying going on, but again, he’d been away from the school for over a year and had never shared with them any contempt for the school or anybody here — no anger, just a lot of depression and stuff going on around the loss of his mother,” the lawyer said.

Lewis continued, “They didn’t see a mentally ill person or they never would’ve let him live under their (roof). … They did not see any danger. They didn’t see any kind of predilection that this was going to happen and they’re horrified just like everyone else.”

Cruz’s digital footprint

Cruz’s social media posts paint what Israel called a “very, very disturbing” picture.

Israel said Cruz’s digital profile contains troubling content that included a variety of gun- and violence-related posts on social media.

A user going by the name of Nikolas Cruz also included slurs against blacks and Muslims in his posts.

A law enforcement source said authorities are aware of Cruz’s extremist views on social media. The investigation is in early stages and so they are gathering information. One question for investigators is whether Cruz simply espoused extremist views and used related language or was in fact tied to any groups.

Cruz’s disturbing behavior also included several threatening comments under videos on YouTube and other sites. They include:

“I whana shoot people with my AR-15”

“I wanna die Fighting killing s**t ton of people”

“I am going to kill law enforcement one day they go after the good people.”

In September, a YouTube user going by Nikolas Cruz posted a comment to a vlogger’s YouTube page, saying, “Im going to be a professional school shooter.” A law enforcement official confirms the FBI received a report about the post.

A law enforcement official told CNN earlier Thursday the FBI had received two reports regarding potential threats from the shooter.

But later Thursday, a separate law enforcement official said authorities believe they only received one report, regarding the comment on YouTube. The investigation is in its early stages, the source said, and information could change as leads are investigated.

On his Instagram page, Cruz posted a photo of a shotgun. In another photo he brandishes what appears to be a BB gun. In other pictures, he is covering his face with a kerchief and brandishing long knives.

Police say Cruz was armed with multiple magazines and at least one AR-15 style rifle. The suspected shooter bought the firearm in the past year and had passed the background check to make the purchase, according to a US official briefed on the investigation.

His host family knew nothing of his social media activity, Lewis said.

“They’re not social media people. They’re parents. They’re just not that kind of folks. And he’s an adult, and they tried to help him. But did they check up on him and follow him every minute of every day? They didn’t, because they didn’t see any of the signs that would indicate that there was anything really amiss, that he was capable of something violent,” he said.

His school life

Cruz was expelled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School for disciplinary reasons, Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie said without elaborating. The teen was transferred to another school in the county because of “issues that arose,” Runcie said.

Cruz usually kept to himself but “once given the opportunity, he liked to talk,” said Brandon Minoff, a senior who was assigned to a group project with Cruz during sophomore year.

“He always just seemed very quiet and strange,” Minoff said.

Minoff initially tried to avoid Cruz, he said, “but when I got assigned to work with him, he started talking to me.”

“He told me how he got kicked out of two private schools. He was held back twice. He had aspirations to join the military. He enjoyed hunting,” the high school senior said.

Cruz appears to have been involved in the high school’s Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps program, as his name is listed under several awards in 2016, including academic achievement for maintaining an A grade in JROTC and Bs in other subjects.

He also was awarded for presenting an outstanding appearance and outstanding conduct throughout school.

His family life

Cruz was adopted by Lynda Cruz, said Kathie Blaine, her cousin. She died November 1 after battling the flu and pneumonia, Blaine said. Cruz’s father had died of a heart attack more than a decade prior.

Blaine said she last saw Lynda Cruz about 20 years ago and had never met Nikolas Cruz.

“I don’t understand it anymore than anyone else does. I can’t believe it. I can’t believe any of these school shootings,” she said.

His classmate’s family took him in about a week after Thanksgiving, Lewis said.

“They had a room. He really had no other options and they brought him in,” he said.

As Cruz sat in Broward County Jail without bond on Thursday, charged with 17 counts of premeditated murder and awaiting his first court appearance, the family continued cooperating with police, the attorney said.

“Their home is being turned inside out,” Lewis said. “We were down there late talking to them, answering all the police questions, showing them phones. They opened their house up. … This family and the son have cooperated with law enforcement every which way they can.”

“They care about this kid. They took him into the home,” the attorney said, “but, as the mother told me, if they had any inkling … that this kid was capable of something like this, they never would’ve brought him into their home.”

Update: This story has been updated with new information about the shooter’s extremist views and whether he had ties to any specific groups.

LONDON, England (IDG) — Imagis Technologies Inc. [Chairman Buck Revells] and Serco Group PLC are working with the UK’s National Crime Squad (NCS) to develop a facial-recognition application for use in crime fighting.

The squad is working on a national database based on Imagis ID-2000 facial-recognition technology to use as a tool for keeping track of convicted pedophiles and other criminals, Imagis announced at the Biometrics 2001 Conference here on Thursday.

“We are working with both Imagis and Serco on the technology,” an NCS spokesman confirmed.”

Abuse-resistant controlled-release opioid dosage form
Publication number: 20080069881
Abstract: Abuse-resistant, controlled release opioid tablets are a combination containing an opioid antagonist such as naloxone at a level above that needed to suppress the euphoric effect of the opioid, if the combination were crushed to break the controlled release properties causing the opioid and opioid antagonist to be released as an immediate release product as a single dose. The controlled release nature of the tablet prevents the accumulation of orally effective amounts of opioid antagonist when taken normally. The opioid antagonist is contained in a controlled-release matrix and released, over time, with the opioid.

“Adam Lanza Documents Released, But Still No Toxicology Test Results
Gather.com – March 29,2013
by Renee Nal
One of the first people to “draw a potential connection between acts of deadly violence and psychiatric medication” was Neurosurgeon and CNN contributor Sanjay Gupta, MD. He asked, “…what medications, if any, he was on, and specifically I’m talking about antidepressants… If you look at the studies on other shootings like this that have happened, medications like this were a common factor…over a seven-year period, there were 11,000 episodes of violence related to drug side effects.”

It is surprising that the ongoing calls (and even an online petition) for Lanza’s toxicology test results are seemingly ignored.

Despite Adam Lanza’s known mental illness and the fact that most of the mass shootings in recent years have involved some form of medication for mental illness; officials have not seen fit to release his toxicology report, which could provide insight into the Sandy Hook Shooter’s mindset.

Most of the news coverage has focused on the “veritable arsenal” documented in the search warrants and other documents, which were recently released by prosecutors. While this development is significant; it is frustrating that there is still no indication of whether the Sandy Hook shooter was on medication at the time of the horrific mass shooting in December. It is even more frustrating that the mainstream media does not seem to be the least bit curious about drugs he may have been taking at the time.

Democrat Gov. Daniel P. Malloy said recently that he was “bewildered” by requests for more information to be released about Lanza, which is shocking considering the various gun-control and mental health legislation being prompted by the mass shooting. Of course, all relevant information should be made public. It is surprising that the ongoing calls (and even an online petition) for Lanza’s toxicology test results are seemingly ignored.”

“Prior to SBA, [Field McConnell’s sister] Ms. [Kristine] Marcy served in several roles at the Department of Justice, including Senior Counsel for Detention and Deportation at the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS), where she oversaw the full range of INS detention and deportation programs and addressed multiple infrastructure and management problems stemming from rapid growth (up 45 percent) in the detention program. Prior to her position at INS, Ms. Marcy served for five years as the Associate Director for Operations Support of the Department of Justice, U.S. Marshals Service (USMS). There, she directed DOJ’s detention program for more than 23,000 prisoners (the nation’s largest). In 1995, she was assigned responsibility by the Attorney General for developing a DOJ-wide transportation system known as the Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System, or JPATS-a nationwide network of leased commercial and government-owned aircraft and ground vehicles. While at the USMS, she also developed a prisoner medical services program and directed the agency’s $1.6 billion seized assets program that redirected proceeds forfeited by criminals and crime organizations to local and Federal law enforcement. Prior to the USMS, she was the Associate Deputy Attorney General for the Department of Justice, where she served as a lawyer who prepared the Deputy Attorney General for duties related to budget and appropriations, executive personnel, and other management areas. She also oversaw activities of the Justice Management Division, Bureau of Prisons, Office of Justice Programs, the Inspector General, and the U.S. Trustees (bankruptcy program).”

“The Senior Executive Service (SES) is a position classification in the civil service of the United States federal government, somewhat analogous to general officer or flag officer ranks in the U.S. Armed Forces.

“Method for efficient management of certificate revocation lists and update information
US 5699431 A
ABSTRACT
A method which allows implementation of the revocation of public-key certificates facilitates engineering of certificate revocation lists (CRLs). It solves the practical problem of CRLs potentially growing to unmanageable lengths by allowing CRLs to be segmented, based on size considerations or priority considerations related to revocation reasons. The method is used to distribute CRL information to users of certificate-based public-key systems. It is also applied more generally to update any field in a certificate by reference to a secondary source of authenticated information.

“Pansy Ho Chiu King, co-chairperson of Macau casino operator MGM China Holdings Ltd, said the firm would focus on the quality of its customers at the new property MGM Cotai (pictured), a casino resort built with facilities that can cater to “any sorts of events”. Ms Ho additionally said that she does not expect the firm’s VIP business to be cannibalised by other gaming operators, as the Cotai property nears completion. MGM China said in September that its under-construction casino resort on Cotai is on target to open on January 29, 2018. That is more than one year later than outlined in the original timetable presented by the company. The company currently operates a single property, MGM Macau, in the city’s traditional downtown casino district. The company’s chief executive Grant Bowie told Hong Kong media on Monday that the firm plans to have five junket operators at MGM Cotai, which could help with the ramp up of the new property. Mr Bowie had previously mentioned during a conference call on the firm’s third-quarter results that MGM Cotai would initially open offering only “in-house VIP” gaming; but the firm had a programme to add junkets “as quickly as” it could.”

“New Interpol head is Chinese former deputy head of paramilitary police force
Vice-minister Meng Hongwei’s election has sparked concerns his position may be used to boost China’s campaign to pursue dissidents around the globe
Benjamin Haas in Hong Kong
Thu 10 Nov 2016 07.17 GMTFirst published on Thu 10 Nov 2016 06.50 GMT
A Chinese security official has been elected head of the global police organization Interpol, sparking fears the move may be used to track down dissidents as well as alleged fugitives who have fled abroad.

Meng Hongwei, vice minister for public security since 2004 and the first Chinese to hold the post, will serve as president for four years after he was elected at an Interpol meeting in Indonesia, the agency announced on Twitter.

“This is extraordinarily worrying given China’s longstanding practice of trying to use Interpol to arrest dissidents and refugees abroad,” Nicholas Bequelin, east Asia director at Amnesty International, said on Twitter.

“The Chinese police have a terrible human rights record, including the endemic practice of coercing ‘confessions’ and the widespread use of torture,” Bequelin said separately in an interview.

“Unlike most law enforcement agencies around the world, the Chinese police have – in addition to the classic law and order mandate – a political mandate to protect the power of the Communist party.”

Meng was previously deputy director of China’s armed police, a paramilitary force that is often deployed to the country’s most unstable areas, including Tibet, the border with North Korea and the far western province of Xinjiang.

Li Wei, head of the anti-terrorism centre at China Institute of Contemporary International Relations, said: “As the head of Interpol, Meng Hongwei will deepen the fight against transnational crime.”

“But it is in China that Haig has carved out a special niche as a door opener for American companies. The general has been a steadfast advocate for China ever since he led the advance team for President Nixon’s historic 1972 visit. Later, as secretary of state, he earned the respect of the Chinese leadership by holding fast against the powerful Taiwan lobby in Washington. (He saw China as a useful ally in the struggle against the Soviet Union.) Haig continues to speak out for Beijing in his present role. Perhaps the most striking example came when he turned up at Tiananmen Square on October 1, 1989 — four months after the notorious crackdown — to mark the 40th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic. The only American to grace the proceedings that evening, Haig knew that the United States and all other Western ambassadors would be boycotting the event, but he shared the podium with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, who congratulated him on his courage in appearing.

“Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell is the FBI‘s former Assistant Director who spent 30 years working his way up to the highest rank in career government service. Upon Buck Revell’s retirement in 1994, he founded Revell Group International (RGI), a global network of former senior FBI, security service, intelligence, diplomatic, law enforcement and military officials with a broad range of international business and technical experience.[1]Revell graduated from East Tennessee State University and got his Masters from Temple University in Public Administration. He served four years in the Marines as an aviator and left as a Captain.[2] ….

Buck Revell began his career in the FBI in November 1964. He recently published a book entitled G-Man’s Journal to chronicle his experiences in the FBI from the Kennedy assassination to the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing from an insider’s point of view. Revell served in the Kansas City, Philadelphia and Tampa Divisions of the FBI and at FBI Headquarters (FBIHQ) in the Organized Crime Section, the Inspection Division and the Office of Planning and Evaluation. In January 1975, Revell was promoted to Assistant Special Agent in charge of the Chicago Division, and later as Acting Special Agent in Charge. In October 1976, Revell was promoted to Senior Executive Service (SES) rank and designated Inspector and Executive Assistant to the Associate Director at FBIHQ. In November 1977, he was designated Special Agent in Charge of the Oklahoma Division. In August 1979, Revell was designated Deputy Assistant Director, Criminal Investigative Division, FBIHQ, where he directed the FBI’s programs in Organized Crime, White Collar Crime, Official Corruption and Undercover Operations. In June 1980, he was promoted to Assistant Director and placed in charge of the Criminal Investigative Division, making him responsible for the criminal investigative and counter-terrorism programs and operations of the FBI.

In January 1981, Assistant Director Revell was placed in charge of the Administrative Services Division where he was responsible for Personnel, Budget, Finance and Physical and Personnel Security Operations of the FBI. In May 1982, Revell was again placed in charge of the Criminal Investigative Division and given the additional responsibility of planning and implementing the FBI’s newly acquired drug enforcement jurisdiction. In July 1985, Revell was promoted to Executive Assistant Director – Investigations (SES-6) the highest rank in career government service. He served as the Director’s deputy in charge of Criminal Investigative, Counter-Terrorism and Counter-Intelligence activities. He was also responsible for international investigative and liaison activities of the Bureau, including its Legal Attaché and INTERPOL operations.[3]

Senior positions

In July 1989, his title was changed to Associate Deputy Director – Investigations and oversight of the Training and Laboratory Divisions of the FBI were added to his responsibilities. As a member (1982-1991) of the President’s Council on Integrity and Efficiency, he was Chairman of the Council’s Committee on Integrity and Law Enforcement.

He served as Vice Chairman of the Interagency Group/Counterintelligence. In 1985, he was a member of the Senior Review Group of the Vice President’s Task Force on Terrorism. He served as a U.S. delegate to the United Nations International Conference on Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking in Vienna.

Revell was a member of the Senior Policy Group of the Vice President’s Task Force on Border Control Issues in 1988; he also served as an Adviser to the President’s Commission on Aviation Security and Terrorism which was established in 1989 “to investigate the events surrounding the destruction of Pan Am Flight 103“. He was a member of “The Executive Session on Policing”, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, 1987-1991.

Lockerbie bombing

Disaster warning

On 21 December 1988, shortly before Pan Am Flight 103 took off from London’s Heathrow airport at 18:25 hours, FBI Assistant Director Oliver “Buck” Revell reportedly rushed out onto the tarmac and pulled his son and daughter-in-law off the plane. The Lockerbie bombing was not the first time authorities were warned of an impending terrorist attack. The situation would repeat itself five years later in New York City, and seven years later in Oklahoma. It was an all too eerie coincidence.

“The five paragraph order or five paragraph field order is a style of organizing information about a military situation for a unit in the field. It is an element of United States Army, United States Marine Corps and United States Navy Seabees of small unit tactics, and similar order styles are used by military groups around the world. An order specifies the instruction to a unit in a structured format that makes it easy to find each specific requirement. The five paragraphs can be remembered with the acronym SMEAC: “S” Situation, “M” Mission, “E” Execution, “A” Administration/Logistics, “C” Command/Signal.”

“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.

The Ministry of Justice had said it would end the contract immediately if the firm’s board was found to have done wrong.

Serco agreed last year to repay all past profits and forgo any future profit on the PECS contract. The deal is due to run until August 2018 and involves Serco transporting prisoners to and from 24 Crown Courts, 43 Magistrates’ Courts, 24 prisons and 131 police stations.

The end of the investigation closes one chapter of Serco’s problems over the past few years. The company repaid £70m last year for overcharging the government on electronic tagging contracts, in a matter that was referred to the Serious Fraud Office.

The firm replaced its chief executive Chris Hyman with Rupert Soames in June, handing him the task of putting the firm back on an even keel. A rights issue is expected early next year to shore up Serco’s financial position.”

Jason King is well known for not telling the truth and for promising things he has no intention of delivering, it?s pathological with him. His admissions do not reflect the true situation which is much worse. [read more…]

“Virtual Command Center
Real-Time Tool to Securely Monitor Criminal Incidents and Major Events Online
July 3, 2012
Originally published in the July 2012 edition of the CJIS Link, Volume 14, Number 2

.. In the modern law enforcement environment, agencies need to share information, collaborate, and join forces to combat crime and terrorism. Often they need to post, track, and spread information across departments and jurisdictions in a quick, secure way for an investigation or for a major occurrence. To satisfy this need for safe, inclusive communication, the LEO Operations Unit created the VCC capability in 2002. The LEO VCC is a situational awareness and/or crisis management tool used to share information about street-level and tactical activities among law enforcement operations centers and command posts. Since its inception, the VCC has been used by numerous agencies for local, national, and international events ranging from major case management to global events like presidential inaugurations.

Because the VCC resides on LEO, it is extremely flexible and can be used or viewed from multiple geographic locations. This makes it feasible for federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to create joint efforts in investigations and law enforcement actions. The VCC exists on a secure system for any designated audience members online, not just those physically present at an event or a “brick and mortar” command center. Through the VCC, law enforcement can effectively manage a tactical incident in real time, 24/7, with both operational and technical support. As the VCC receives and posts relevant information and intelligence, it provides a comprehensive account of an incident or event to designated law enforcement channels.

The VCC provides an events board feature that permits information posts as an event occurs and allows listing of data such as photographs, scanned documents, or any information that would be useful to managing an event or crisis. Agencies hosting the VCC can permit access to individual persons or entire agencies as needed. Even critical incident managers, such as emergency planners, can now have remote access to a crisis without having to be on-scene. Recent enhancements to the VCC capability include the ability to display incidents by specific dates or times, improved refresh rates on the screens, and improved critical real-time monitoring of operations.

The FBI and the law enforcement community as a whole have benefited from the increased ability to share vital information and collaborate—even over previously unmanageable locality impediments—by the creation of the VCC. In 2011, LEO members created over 300 new VCCs and opened over 700 VCC event boards to collect, record, and securely publish information. As an indication of its effectiveness and adaptability, the law enforcement community has used the VCC not only during kidnappings, shootings, and special investigations, but also during major events such as NASCAR races, Republican and Democratic National Conventions, a presidential inauguration, the Super Bowl, the Pro Bowl, the Academy Awards, and the Hurricane Katrina relief effort.”

As discussed in the news clip above, the reason for the Dutch Foreign Minister Halbe Zijlstra lying about his false story meeting with Vladimir Putin and “Russia wanting to take over territory”, especially related to Ukraine, was to bolster weapons spending for NATO against a falsely propagated “Russian threat.” The entire edifice established by NATO and the Anglo-Americans against Russia is to falsify media reporting about Russia at every juncture possible to increase military spending. That is really foundational to understanding what is going on here. The bigger the falsified military threat from Russia that can be placed in the public consciousness, the more money can be spent on weapons systems.

Christopher Steele: The Real Foreign Influence in the 2016 Election?

His dossier was more than opposition research, it was part of a full-spectrum information operation.

By PETER VAN BUREN • February 15, 2018

[Image] Christopher Steele (Screen grab/CBSN)

Leaving aside the validity of what has become known as the “Steele dossier,” it’s important to look at how Christopher Steele was able to guarantee that the information in it would play a significant and ongoing role in American politics.

Steele, who is British, did far more than simply provide opposition research to the Democratic National Committee. He was able to make sure it reached the most influential people possible in politics, media and government to shape and influence the growing narrative of the 2016 presidential election. In other words, as a skilled professional intelligence officer, Steele ran a full-spectrum information operation against the United States. One could even call it information warfare.

This is what separates his work creating the dossier (which a decent journalist with friends in Russia could have done) from his work insinuating the dossier into the highest reaches of American government and political society. For that, you need a real pro, an intelligence officer with decades of experience running just that kind of operation. Looking for foreign interference in the 2016 election? Let’s take a closer look at Christopher Steele.

Steele’s skill is revealed by the now familiar Nunes and Grassley memos, which show he used the same set of information in the dossier to create a collaboration loop, every intelligence officer’s dream, which is his own planted information used to surreptitiously confirm itself, right up to the point where the target country’s own intelligence service re-purposed it as evidence in the FISA (Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act) court.

Steele admits he briefed journalists off-the-record starting in summer and autumn 2016. His most significant hit came when in September 2016, journalist Michael Isikoff broke the story of Trump associate Carter Page’s alleged connections to Russia. Isikoff did not cite the dossier or Steele as sources, and in fact denied they were when questioned.

Isikoff’s story didn’t just push negative information about Trump into the public consciousness. It claimed U.S. intel officials were probing ties between a Trump adviser and the Kremlin, adding credibility, suggesting the feds themselves felt the info was worthwhile. Better yet for Steele, Isikoff claimed the information came from a “well-placed Western intelligence source,” suggesting it originated from a third-party and was picked up by Western spies instead of being written by one. Steele, either as a source himself or via colleagues passing around his information, saw to it the dossier information reached journalists at Mother Jones, the BBC, Guardian and others. An article by Harold Blum in Vanity Fair laid it out in April of last year:

It wasn’t long before, as The New York Times would write, the memos by the former spy “became one of Washington’s worst-kept secrets, as reporters . . . scrambled to confirm or disprove them.”

At the same time, Steele’s info reached influential people like Sen. John McCain, who could then pick up a newspaper and believe he was seeing the “secret” info from Steele confirmed independently by an experienced journalist. And how did McCain first learn about Steele’s work? At a conference in Canada, via Andrew Wood, former British Ambassador in Moscow. Where was Wood working at the time? Orbis, Christopher Steele’s research firm.

Kelly 215: Serco’s Patentee Imagis Track, Clinton’s Death-Pool Schools, Con Air SWAT Team Buck

General John F. Kelly
White House Chief of Staff
Washington, D.C. 20528

Open letter from the Cloud Centric Crime Scene Investigators of Abel Danger

February 15, 2018

Dear General Kelly:

Please accept Brief 215 from Field McConnell – United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – on Serco‘s CAI private equity investors including the late General Alexander Haig, 7th SACEUR and former director of MGM, UTC and AOL, and Yves Fortier former Nortel director, who allegedly deploy patentee SWAT teams with Imagis Technologies software and Nortel’s Joint Automated Booking System (JABS) to control body counts at mass-casualty events by Prisoner tracking and warning system and corresponding methods US6054928A and patsies apparently medicated by off-label drugs such as those derived from Teva Pharmaceuticals’ Preparation of risperidone US6750341B2.

McConnell claims, that Haig and Kristine Marcy, McConnell’s sister and the founder of the U.S. Senior Executives Service (SES) and Con Air (JPATS), embedded patented devices including Tencent (BVI) Limited’s Instant messaging system and method US 8566404 B and Howard Lutnick’s Real-time interactive wagering on event outcomes CA 2460367 A in the various government networks which allegedly allowed Clinton Foundation donors and the Greek Life associates of George H. Bush (Phi Beta Kappa) and Wilbur Ross (Kappa Beta Phi) to coordinate dead-pool betting on body counts during attacks by medicated patsies including the late Adam Lanza who killed 27 people at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut on December 14, 2012 and by Nikolas Cruz who killed 17 people at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida on February 14, 2018.

McConnell claims that Marcy embedded Nortel’s Method for efficient management of certificate revocation lists and update information US 5699431 A in FBI Virtual Command Centers (VCCs) and Law Enforcement Online (LEO) networks so Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell, former Marine Corps Captain, former FBI Executive Assistant Director – Investigations (SES-6) and the founder of Imagis [face-recognition] Technologies, could stand down law enforcement and surveillance at prospective crime scenes before launching Conair SWAT team attacks on the enemies of Serco’s private-equity groups and the Clintons’ Greek Life friends.

McConnell reminds you that Buck Revell (warned by Serco’s British Invisibles?) is reported to have pulled his son and daughter-in-law off Pan Am Flight 103 just before takeoff from London’s Heathrow airport at 18:25 hours on 21 December 1988 (after McConnell told his Conair sister how to handle a prisoner mutiny by droning the aircraft) and saved them from a SMEAC* bombing event over Lockerbie, Scotland at 19:02:50 with its body count of 270 = 243 passengers + 16 crew + 11 people on ground.

*Serco alleged corruption of the Marine Corps SMEAC briefing protocols – Situation, Mission, Execution, Ambush, Cover-up

McConnell claims that Serco is using Two-way wireless system for financial industry transactions US 6539362 B1 to ‘drift’ proceeds of crimes including body-count wagering, snuff films (cf. BC pig farm & Starnet Comms.) and child pornography into Marcy’s DOJ Asset Forfeiture Funds and private accounts of junket operators, promoters (late Stephen Paddock!) and players associated with the late General Haig.

Given that this is the 215th Kelly public briefing with ample opportunities for traitors and Serco agents to rebut our allegations of fraud upon patentees registered at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office including Teva Pharmaceuticals and Tencent, and their subsequently-extorted participation in mass-casualty wagering events, we ask you to have McConnell’s sister Kristine ‘Conair’ Marcy placed in protective custody where she can be questioned and the former Marine Corps Captain, Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell charged in the appropriate court under 18 U.S.C. § 2382 – Misprision of treason or 18 U.S.C. § 1958 – Murder-for-hire.

“Nikolas Cruz: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

1. Cruz, Who Told a Friend ‘I Don’t Go to School on Valentine’s Day,’ Was Arrested Without Incident After Fleeing From the School by Mixing With Students

Nick Cruz was taken into custody at a Parkland home not far from the school about about 4 p.m. The shooting was first reported about 2 p.m. It is not clear how Cruz escaped from the school, but he possibly fled with students during the chaos. CNN reports that he mixed himself in with those leaving the school in an effort to escape.

According to police scanner transmissions, officers were tracking the suspect’s movements in the school through security cameras and had a description of the clothing he was wearing. They later had witnesses identify him as the shooter after he was taken into custody.

“Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to an active shooter situation at a Broward County school Wednesday afternoon,” the sheriff’s office said in a press release. “Responding deputies were met with hundreds of students fleeing the school. Investigators later learned that the shooter had concealed himself in the crowd and was among those running out of the school. After watching school security video, investigators were able to identify the shooter as Nikolas Cruz, 19. Cruz had attended and was expelled from the school the previous year.”

“I know she had been having some issues with them, especially the older one. He was being a problem. I know he did have some issues and he may have been taking medication. [He] did have some kind of emotional or difficulties,” Barbara Kumbatovich, Lynda’s sister-in-law, told the newspaper. “[Lynda] kept a really close handle on both boys. They were not major issues, as far as I know, just things teenagers do like not coming home on time, maybe being disrespectful.”

Another family member, who was not identified, told the newspaper that Nikolas’ adoptive father died of a heart attack when Nikolas was young. The family member said Nikolas Cruz had been diagnosed with autism and Lynda had sought counseling for him from a young age.”

“Adam Lanza Documents Released, But Still No Toxicology Test Results
Gather.com – March 29,2013
by Renee Nal
One of the first people to “draw a potential connection between acts of deadly violence and psychiatric medication” was Neurosurgeon and CNN contributor Sanjay Gupta, MD. He asked, “…what medications, if any, he was on, and specifically I’m talking about antidepressants… If you look at the studies on other shootings like this that have happened, medications like this were a common factor…over a seven-year period, there were 11,000 episodes of violence related to drug side effects.”

It is surprising that the ongoing calls (and even an online petition) for Lanza’s toxicology test results are seemingly ignored.

Despite Adam Lanza’s known mental illness and the fact that most of the mass shootings in recent years have involved some form of medication for mental illness; officials have not seen fit to release his toxicology report, which could provide insight into the Sandy Hook Shooter’s mindset.

Most of the news coverage has focused on the “veritable arsenal” documented in the search warrants and other documents, which were recently released by prosecutors. While this development is significant; it is frustrating that there is still no indication of whether the Sandy Hook shooter was on medication at the time of the horrific mass shooting in December. It is even more frustrating that the mainstream media does not seem to be the least bit curious about drugs he may have been taking at the time.

Democrat Gov. Daniel P. Malloy said recently that he was “bewildered” by requests for more information to be released about Lanza, which is shocking considering the various gun-control and mental health legislation being prompted by the mass shooting. Of course, all relevant information should be made public. It is surprising that the ongoing calls (and even an online petition) for Lanza’s toxicology test results are seemingly ignored.”

“Risperidone, sold under the trade name Risperdal among others, is an antipsychotic medication.[2] It is mainly used to treat schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and irritability in people with autism.[2] It is taken either by mouth or by injection into a muscle.[2]The injectable version is long acting and lasts for about two weeks.[3] …

On 11 April 2012, Johnson & Johnson and its subsidiary Janssen Pharmaceuticals Inc. were fined $1.2 billion by Judge Timothy Davis Fox of the Sixth Division of the Sixth Judicial Circuit of the U.S. state of Arkansas.[50] The jury found the companies had downplayed multiple risks associated with risperidone (Risperdal). The verdict was later reversed by the Arkansas State Supreme court.[51]

In August 2012, Johnson & Johnson agreed to pay $181 million to 36 U.S. states in order to settle claims that it had promoted risperidone and paliperidone for off-label uses including for dementia, anger management, and anxiety.[52]

In November 2013, J&J was fined $2.2 billion for illegally marketing risperone for use in people with dementia.[53]

J&J has faced numerous civil lawsuits on behalf of children who were prescribed risperidone who grew breasts (a condition called gynecomastia); as of July 2016 there were about 1,500 cases in Pennsylvania state court in Philadelphia, and there had been a February 2015 verdict against J&J with $2.5 million awarded to a man from Alabama, a $1.75M verdict against J&J that November, and in 2016 a $70 million verdict against J&J.[54]

In 2015, Steven Brill posted a 15-part investigative journalism piece on J&J in Huffington Post, called “America’s most admired lawbreaker”, which was focused on J&J’s marketing of risperidone.[55][56]”

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd TEVA.O said on Friday a U.S. court granted a request that would give the Israeli company 180 days of exclusivity selling a generic version of widely used schizophrenia drug Risperdal.

“Jeremy Desai resigns as CEO of Apotex, the drug company founded by Barry Sherman

Former CEO Jack Kay to take over leadership of generics drug maker

The Canadian Press Posted: Jan 26, 2018 1:02 PM ET Last Updated: Jan 26, 2018 4:36 PM ET

Lobbying commissioner drops investigation into Barry Sherman

Barry Sherman, found dead with his wife in their home, set up ‘robust succession plan’ for Apotex 5 years ago

Apotex Inc. president and CEO Jeremy Desai resigned effective immediately Friday from the generic drug giant founded by billionaire Barry Sherman, who was found slain in his home on Dec. 15.

Desai’s resignation comes as he faces allegations in a U.S. lawsuit from Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. for allegedly accepting trade secrets from a Teva employee that he was thought to be in a romantic relationship with.

The lawsuit, filed last July in a Pennsylvania Federal Court, accuses Barinder Sandhu, who worked as a senior director of regulatory affairs for Teva’s U.S. generics division, of sharing trade secrets and other confidential information about Teva’s product development with its competitor Apotex through Desai.

The legal filings accuse Sandhu of uploading some 900 Teva corporate files to a cloud-based storage system between October 2014 and August 2016.

Teva said it learned of the alleged breach from a former Apotex employee and launched an investigation that found emails sent from Sandhu to Desai from her work computer.

The Israel-based pharmaceutical company said in the lawsuit that it’s seeking damages from Desai and Apotex for “wilful and malicious misappropriation” of trade secrets.

“Apotex and Desai used and continue to use Teva USA’s trade secrets and other confidential information to benefit Apotex’s own competitive product development, thereby allowing Desai and Apotex to improperly profit at Teva USA’s expense,” the lawsuit states.

The allegations have not been proven in court and Apotex filed a motion to dismiss the complaint as being based on insufficient facts to withstand scrutiny.

Apotex spokesperson Jordan Berman declined to provide details on Desai’s departure other than to note he left “to pursue other opportunities.”

“We thank Jeremy for his contributions and wish him success in the next phase of his career,” Berman said in an email.

Apotex said Friday that Jack Kay, who previously served as CEO for the privately held company, will once again step into the chief executive role while also maintaining his current position as vice-chairman.

Jeff Watson, who has spent 25 years with the company including most recently as president of global generics, has been appointed to the role of president and chief operating officer.

Barry Sherman and his wife Honey were found dead in their Toronto home on Dec. 15, with the cause of death determined to be “ligature neck compression.”

Police said Friday they are now investigating the deaths as a double homicide.

“Prisoner tracking and warning system and corresponding methods US6054928A
Abstract
A system and method for tracking, monitoring and learning prisoner or parolee behavior involves obtaining prisoner or parolee data and monitoring data for at least one individual prisoner or parolee, storing the prisoner or parolee data and monitored data into a database, learning prisoner or parolee behavior from the prisoner or parolee data and the monitored data in the database, and updating the prisoner or parolee data and the monitored data in the database. Expert system (i.e. including but not limited to fuzzy logic, reinforcement learning, neural networks, artificial intelligence, etc.) algorithms are executed for determining and analyzing deviated behavior by the prisoner or parolee. A parole level is assigned to the prisoner or parolee and it is determined whether the prisoner or parolee is to be moved up or down a parole level depending on whether the prisoner or parolee behavior does not constitute or does constitute prisoner or parolee violations. Furthermore, the system tracks, monitors, and learns the behavior of the prisoner or parolee by controlling and regulating the permitted/prohibited locations or sectors, the permitted/prohibited location or sector dwell times, the permitted/prohibited travel routes, the permitted/prohibited travel times that the prisoner or parolee spends at or between various locations.

“Method for efficient management of certificate revocation lists and update information
US 5699431 A
ABSTRACT
A method which allows implementation of the revocation of public-key certificates facilitates engineering of certificate revocation lists (CRLs). It solves the practical problem of CRLs potentially growing to unmanageable lengths by allowing CRLs to be segmented, based on size considerations or priority considerations related to revocation reasons. The method is used to distribute CRL information to users of certificate-based public-key systems. It is also applied more generally to update any field in a certificate by reference to a secondary source of authenticated information.

“Pansy Ho Chiu King, co-chairperson of Macau casino operator MGM China Holdings Ltd, said the firm would focus on the quality of its customers at the new property MGM Cotai (pictured), a casino resort built with facilities that can cater to “any sorts of events”. Ms Ho additionally said that she does not expect the firm’s VIP business to be cannibalised by other gaming operators, as the Cotai property nears completion. MGM China said in September that its under-construction casino resort on Cotai is on target to open on January 29, 2018. That is more than one year later than outlined in the original timetable presented by the company. The company currently operates a single property, MGM Macau, in the city’s traditional downtown casino district. The company’s chief executive Grant Bowie told Hong Kong media on Monday that the firm plans to have five junket operators at MGM Cotai, which could help with the ramp up of the new property. Mr Bowie had previously mentioned during a conference call on the firm’s third-quarter results that MGM Cotai would initially open offering only “in-house VIP” gaming; but the firm had a programme to add junkets “as quickly as” it could.”

“New Interpol head is Chinese former deputy head of paramilitary police force
Vice-minister Meng Hongwei’s election has sparked concerns his position may be used to boost China’s campaign to pursue dissidents around the globe
Benjamin Haas in Hong Kong
Thu 10 Nov 2016 07.17 GMTFirst published on Thu 10 Nov 2016 06.50 GMT
A Chinese security official has been elected head of the global police organization Interpol, sparking fears the move may be used to track down dissidents as well as alleged fugitives who have fled abroad.

Meng Hongwei, vice minister for public security since 2004 and the first Chinese to hold the post, will serve as president for four years after he was elected at an Interpol meeting in Indonesia, the agency announced on Twitter.

“This is extraordinarily worrying given China’s longstanding practice of trying to use Interpol to arrest dissidents and refugees abroad,” Nicholas Bequelin, east Asia director at Amnesty International, said on Twitter.

“The Chinese police have a terrible human rights record, including the endemic practice of coercing ‘confessions’ and the widespread use of torture,” Bequelin said separately in an interview.

“Unlike most law enforcement agencies around the world, the Chinese police have – in addition to the classic law and order mandate – a political mandate to protect the power of the Communist party.”

Meng was previously deputy director of China’s armed police, a paramilitary force that is often deployed to the country’s most unstable areas, including Tibet, the border with North Korea and the far western province of Xinjiang.

Li Wei, head of the anti-terrorism centre at China Institute of Contemporary International Relations, said: “As the head of Interpol, Meng Hongwei will deepen the fight against transnational crime.”

“But it is in China that Haig has carved out a special niche as a door opener for American companies. The general has been a steadfast advocate for China ever since he led the advance team for President Nixon’s historic 1972 visit. Later, as secretary of state, he earned the respect of the Chinese leadership by holding fast against the powerful Taiwan lobby in Washington. (He saw China as a useful ally in the struggle against the Soviet Union.) Haig continues to speak out for Beijing in his present role. Perhaps the most striking example came when he turned up at Tiananmen Square on October 1, 1989 — four months after the notorious crackdown — to mark the 40th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic. The only American to grace the proceedings that evening, Haig knew that the United States and all other Western ambassadors would be boycotting the event, but he shared the podium with Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, who congratulated him on his courage in appearing.

In May 1982, Revell was again placed in charge of the Criminal Investigative Division and given the additional responsibility of planning and implementing the FBI’s newly acquired drug enforcement jurisdiction. In July 1985, Revell was promoted to Executive Assistant Director – Investigations (SES-6) the highest rank in career government service. He served as the Director’s deputy in charge of Criminal Investigative, Counter-Terrorism and Counter-Intelligence activities.

He was a member of “The Executive Session on Policing”, Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University, 1987-1991.

Lockerbie bombing

Disaster warning

On 21 December 1988, shortly before Pan Am Flight 103 took off from London’s Heathrow airport at 18:25 hours, FBI Assistant Director Oliver “Buck” Revell reportedly rushed out onto the tarmac and pulled his son and daughter-in-law off the plane. The Lockerbie bombing was not the first time authorities were warned of an impending terrorist attack. The situation would repeat itself five years later in New York City, and seven years later in Oklahoma. It was an all too eerie coincidence.

“The five paragraph order or five paragraph field order is a style of organizing information about a military situation for a unit in the field. It is an element of United States Army, United States Marine Corps and United States Navy Seabees of small unit tactics, and similar order styles are used by military groups around the world. An order specifies the instruction to a unit in a structured format that makes it easy to find each specific requirement. The five paragraphs can be remembered with the acronym SMEAC: “S” Situation, “M” Mission, “E” Execution, “A” Administration/Logistics, “C” Command/Signal.”

“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.

The Ministry of Justice had said it would end the contract immediately if the firm’s board was found to have done wrong.

Serco agreed last year to repay all past profits and forgo any future profit on the PECS contract. The deal is due to run until August 2018 and involves Serco transporting prisoners to and from 24 Crown Courts, 43 Magistrates’ Courts, 24 prisons and 131 police stations.

The end of the investigation closes one chapter of Serco’s problems over the past few years. The company repaid £70m last year for overcharging the government on electronic tagging contracts, in a matter that was referred to the Serious Fraud Office.

The firm replaced its chief executive Chris Hyman with Rupert Soames in June, handing him the task of putting the firm back on an even keel. A rights issue is expected early next year to shore up Serco’s financial position.”

“Nortel Government Solutions, in collaboration with the Department of Justice (DOJ), built the Joint Automated Booking System (JABS) — a centralized system for automating the collection of fingerprint, photographic and biographic data, submitting this data to the FBI, and sharing it with participating law enforcement agencies nationwide.”

“Virtual Command Center
Real-Time Tool to Securely Monitor Criminal Incidents and Major Events Online
July 3, 2012
Originally published in the July 2012 edition of the CJIS Link, Volume 14, Number 2

.. In the modern law enforcement environment, agencies need to share information, collaborate, and join forces to combat crime and terrorism. Often they need to post, track, and spread information across departments and jurisdictions in a quick, secure way for an investigation or for a major occurrence. To satisfy this need for safe, inclusive communication, the LEO Operations Unit created the VCC capability in 2002. The LEO VCC is a situational awareness and/or crisis management tool used to share information about street-level and tactical activities among law enforcement operations centers and command posts. Since its inception, the VCC has been used by numerous agencies for local, national, and international events ranging from major case management to global events like presidential inaugurations.

Because the VCC resides on LEO, it is extremely flexible and can be used or viewed from multiple geographic locations. This makes it feasible for federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies to create joint efforts in investigations and law enforcement actions. The VCC exists on a secure system for any designated audience members online, not just those physically present at an event or a “brick and mortar” command center. Through the VCC, law enforcement can effectively manage a tactical incident in real time, 24/7, with both operational and technical support. As the VCC receives and posts relevant information and intelligence, it provides a comprehensive account of an incident or event to designated law enforcement channels.

The VCC provides an events board feature that permits information posts as an event occurs and allows listing of data such as photographs, scanned documents, or any information that would be useful to managing an event or crisis. Agencies hosting the VCC can permit access to individual persons or entire agencies as needed. Even critical incident managers, such as emergency planners, can now have remote access to a crisis without having to be on-scene. Recent enhancements to the VCC capability include the ability to display incidents by specific dates or times, improved refresh rates on the screens, and improved critical real-time monitoring of operations.

The FBI and the law enforcement community as a whole have benefited from the increased ability to share vital information and collaborate—even over previously unmanageable locality impediments—by the creation of the VCC. In 2011, LEO members created over 300 new VCCs and opened over 700 VCC event boards to collect, record, and securely publish information. As an indication of its effectiveness and adaptability, the law enforcement community has used the VCC not only during kidnappings, shootings, and special investigations, but also during major events such as NASCAR races, Republican and Democratic National Conventions, a presidential inauguration, the Super Bowl, the Pro Bowl, the Academy Awards, and the Hurricane Katrina relief effort.”
