#2579: Serco Bin-Laden Vampire Shorts – Clinton Cole Patent Hack – Carlton Bartels Carbon Cap
1. Abel Danger (AD) asserts that Serco’s ‘Vampire’ shareholders led by Goldman Sachs and HSBC launched a sort-selling attack on WTC tenants on 9/11 and hired Yeslam bin Laden – Osama’s half-brother – to coordinate al-Qaeda’s news and media injects.
2. AD asserts that in 2000, Serco hackers converted the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to Crown Rights rules and helped Hillary Clinton’s aides prepare patented Navy Onion Router devices for the ‘bin Laden‘ ambush of the USS Cole in Aden Harbour.
3. AD asserts that Serco equipped Clinton with patented devices to synchronize 9/11 short-selling attacks on the WTC#1 tenants, to camouflage the carbon-cap killing of Carlton Bartels and 657 of his Cantor Fitzgerald colleagues and capture Cantor’s patents which may allow the UK Cabinet Office to control global breath!

“1997: Bin Laden Family Financial Connection With Osama Continues Until At Least This Year
Yeslam bin Laden, Osama’s half brother, and a Westernized leader of the Binladin Group. 2004, Osama bin Laden’s half brother Yeslam Binladin admits that he and other bin Laden family members share a Swiss bank account with Osama bin Laden from 1990 until 1997. The account was opened by brothers Omar and Heidar bin Laden in 1990 with an initial deposit of $450,000. By 1997, only two people are authorized to conduct transactions on the account: brothers Osama and Yeslam bin Laden. The bin Laden family claims to have disowned Osama bin Laden in 1994 (see Shortly After April 9, 1994), and the US government officially designated him as a financier of terrorism in 1996. Yeslam had previously denied any financial dealings with Osama at this late date until evidence of this bank account was uncovered by French private investigator Jean-Charles Brisard. In December 2001, French authorities will open an investigation into the financial dealings of the Saudi Investment Company (SICO) run by Yeslam Binladin. [AGENCE FRANCE-PRESSE, 7/26/2004; SCOTSMAN, 9/28/2004; DER SPIEGEL (HAMBURG), 6/6/2005] In 2002, his house will be raided by French police. [ASSOCIATED PRESS, 3/20/2002] No charges have been made as of yet, but the investigation will continue and in fact widen its scope in late 2004. A French magistrate will claim he is looking into “other instances of money laundering” apparently involving financial entities connected to Yeslam and other bin Laden family members. [REUTERS, 12/26/2004] Yeslam claims he’s had no contact with Osama in 20 years. Yet, in 2004, when asked if he would turn in Osama if given the chance, he replies, “What do you think? Would you turn in your brother?” [MSNBC, 7/10/2004] His ex-wife Carmen Binladin will also comment around the same time, “From what I have seen and what I have read, I cannot believe that [the rest of the bin Laden family] have cut off Osama completely.… And I cannot believe that some of the sisters [don’t support him.] They are very close to Osama.” [SALON, 7/10/2004] Entity Tags: Jean-Charles Brisard, Carmen Binladin, Saudi Investment Company, Bin Laden Family, Yeslam Binladin, Osama bin Laden Category Tags: Saudi Arabia, Bin Laden Family, Terrorism Financing”
“Osama’s half-brother, Yeslam Bin Laden, shared a Swiss bank account with Osama even as late as 1997 [Der Spiegel (Hamburg), 6/6/2005]. Yeslam also paid for the pilot training of an acquaintance at Huffman aviation, the same flight school where some of the 9/11 hijackers trained [New Yorker, 11/12/2001]. The flight school in question was considered to be a CIA front. Yeslam married into Iranian royalty, and his sister in law, Beatrice LaFour is also of Iranian origin, and married to a Swiss financier [PBS, 04/1999]. This hints at strong Shiite connections among the Bin Ladens.”
“Matt Lauer interviews Yeslam bin Laden
Dateline NBC updated 7/10/2004 7:28:18 AM ET
Osama bin Laden is the most wanted terrorist in the world. To the man in the following interview, he is that and something else. He’s his brother. For the first time in American media, a half-brother of Osama bin Laden is speaking out about his infamous relative, his life after Sept. 11 and about allegations made in Michael Moore’s controversial film, “Fahrenheit 9/11.” Yeslam bin Laden has been reluctant to speak to the American public, until now. He is breaking his silence, he says, to set the record straight, starting with the day that changed so many lives around the world.
Matt Lauer: “Take me back to September 11. Where were you?”
Yeslam bin Laden: “I was in Geneva.”
Lauer: “And when did you hear about the attacks on the World Trade Center?”
Bin Laden: “Well, I have a friend who is an investment banker, an American friend. Called me and told me a plane ran into the tower. And at the beginning, we thought it was an accident and then he called me back to tell me that the second — the tower was hit by another plane. And then we knew that it is not an accident.”
People around the world had the same sickening realization that day. But for this particular man, a wealthy Swiss businessman, seemingly so far removed from the terror. The greatest crime of the new century would come to have a deeply personal dimension.
Lauer: “Did you immediately suspect that your brother might be involved in this?”
Bin Laden: “Never thought. It’s too sophisticated, I thought, for anybody to imagine something like this.”
“The USS Cole bombing was a terrorist attack against the United States Navy guided-missile destroyer USS Cole (DDG-67) on 12 October 2000, while it was harbored and being refueled in the Yemeni port of Aden. 17 American sailors were killed, and 39 were injured. This event was the deadliest attack against a United States Naval vessel since 1987.
The terrorist organization al-Qaeda claimed responsibility for the attack. A U.S. judge has held Sudan liable for the attack, while another has released over $13 million in Sudanese frozen assets to the relatives of those killed. The American Navy has reconsidered their rules of engagement in response to this attack.”
“In August 2001, Carlton Bartels, a partner at Cantor Fitzgerald and the chief executive officer of a company named CO2e.com, filed for a patent on the software technology that would eventually equip CCX to properly monitor the trading of residential carbon credits. But before he could secure the patent, Bartels was killed in the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center. His widow subsequently located a buyer for the software technology: Franklin Raines, CEO of Fannie Mae, the mortgage-lending giant whose practice of purchasing risky mortgages from banks – and then bundling and selling them to its investors as mortgage-backed securities – would eventually send the U.S. housing market into steep decine. Raines not only oversaw that practice for six years, but he also manipulated profit-and-loss reports so as to enable himself and other Fannie Mae executives to earn gargantuan bonuses – nearly $100 million for Raines alone – even as the mortgage lender was imploding. Raines would eventually serve as the conduit through which Bartels’ software would find its way to CCX.
In November 2001, Paula DiPerna stepped down from her post as Joyce Foundation president and joined CCX, where she went on to become executive vice president in charge of corporate recruitment and public policy, as well as president of an affiliated company, CCX International.
In 2002, a second Joyce Foundation grant – for $760,100 – was used to finance the 2003 “launch” of CCX with its 14 founding members, the most prominent of which were such corporate giants as DuPont, the Ford Motor Company, and Motorola.
In November 2002, Franklin Raines and nine partners collaborated, on behalf of Fannie Mae, to apply for a patent on the software technology they had purchased from Carlton Bartels’ widow. One of those partners was former Fannie Mae vice president Scott Lesmes, who was responsible for the aforementioned mortgage-bundling scheme. Another was Robert Sahadi, also a onetime Fannie Mae VP, who now runs GreenSpace Investment Financial Services out of his 5,000-square-foot Maryland home.
The U.S. Patent and Trade office approved the patent on November 7, 2006, the day after the Democrats took control of Congress. The patented technology, which is now utilized by CCX, bundles CO2 and other GHGs in a manner similar to how Fannie Mae bundled toxic mortgages under Raines and Lesmes. The patent summary describes how carbon “and other pollutants yet to be determined” will be “combined into a single emissions pool” and traded.”
“Onion routing network for securely moving data through communication networks
US 6266704 B1 ABSTRACT The onion routing network is used to protect Internet initiators and responders against both eavesdropping and traffic analysis from other users of the Internet. In the onion routing of the invention, instead of making connections directly to a responding machine, users make connections through onion routers. The onion routing network allows the connection between the initiator and responder to remain anonymous. Anonymous connections hide who is connected to whom and for what purpose from outside eavesdroppers.”
“Hillary Rodham and Bill Clinton bought a house in Fayetteville in the summer of 1975 and Hillary finally agreed to marry. Their wedding took place on October 11, 1975, in a Methodist ceremony in their living room. A story about the marriage in the Arkansas Gazette indicated that she was retaining the name Hillary Rodham. The motivation was to keep the couple’s professional lives separate and avoid apparent conflicts of interest and because, as she told a friend at the time, “it showed that I was still me.” The decision did upset both their mothers. Bill Clinton had lost the congressional race in 1974, but in November 1976 was elected Arkansas Attorney General, and so the couple moved to the state capital of Little Rock. There, in February 1977, Rodham joined the venerable Rose Law Firm, a bastion of Arkansan political and economic influence. She specialized in patent infringement and intellectual property law while also working pro bono in child advocacy; she rarely performed litigation work in court. .. In 1979, Rodham became the first woman to be made a full partner of Rose Law Firm. From 1978 until they entered the White House, she had a higher salary than that of her husband. During 1978 and 1979, while looking to supplement their income, Rodham made a spectacular profit from trading cattle futures contracts; an initial $1,000 investment generated nearly $100,000 when she stopped trading after ten months. The couple also began their ill-fated investment in the Whitewater Development Corporation real estate venture with Jim and Susan McDougal at this time.”
“Hillary Clinton agrees patents be suspended until corporations pay their taxes
By Gene Quinn on January 12, 2016
QUESTION: We have major corporations in this country— GE, Apple, many others— that are salting money away offshore. Can’t we use their patents as leverage to make them pay their taxes?
HILLARY CLINTON: Yes.
QUESTION: Is that possible?
HILLARY CLINTON: Yes, we can and we will. You know—
QUESTION: We should suspend their patents until they pay their taxes.
HILLARY CLINTON: You are right. You know, American companies have, I think, a couple trillion dollars stashed overseas. Now technically it’s on their books, but they park it somewhere they don’t want to pay their taxes. And I think we have to reform our whole tax code because the way it is working now it is driving companies away, and its driving companies to engage in all these really gimmicky tax games that they are playing. And we have to get a fair, consistent tax program so that corporations pay their fair share just like the wealthy, and that’s what I’m going to try and do.
According to the report the Clinton Campaign did not elaborate on what Secretary Clinton might have meant when she responded that patents would be used as leverage.
It is impossible to know whether or how Hillary Clinton would leverage patents in order to force companies, such as GE and Apple, to repatriate money from overseas and thereby incur enormous tax liability. This may be nothing more than Clinton not properly hearing the question, or all of the question, but it could be much more and should be at least somewhat disconcerting to those in tech companies who are generously funding her campaign (see here and here). Nevertheless, it is deeply troubling that Clinton agreed with the person asking the question when he offered the suggestion that patents should be suspended until taxes are paid.
Is it possible that the United States Patent and Trademark Office in a Clinton Administration might stop issuing patents to companies that refuse to repatriate money to the United States? Is it possible that patents would be withheld from those who more generally are not paying their taxes, or paying “enough” in taxes? Is it possible that already issued patents would become unenforceable or somehow otherwise suspended, as suggested by the above Clinton Q&A? These would be extraordinary steps, not to mention ones without precedent.
There is no legal authority to hold patents hostage as a bargaining chip to force corporations or individual patent owners to pay more or higher taxes, and no authority to suspend patents for failure to pay taxes or repatriate foreign profits. To be legal such a move would require a significant amendment to the patent laws of the United States. There would be enormous administrative burden imposed on those seeking patents and on the Patent Office.
In the question and answer above, Clinton says that the tax code is driving corporations away, but suspending patents or otherwise taking them hostage or somehow leveraging them to ensure taxes are paid or foreign profits repatriated would all but certainly do more to drive corporations away than anything the government has ever done. Indeed, a rule that tied paying taxes, or repatriation of foreign profits to the United States, to obtaining a patent would almost certainly create an extraordinary disincentive to seek a patent in the United States, which itself would lead to a nearly unimaginable parade of horribles at a time that the U.S. economy is nearly wholly reliant on innovation and technology. Holding patents hostage to force higher taxes or repatriation of foreign profits would be an ill-advised, shortsighted decision that would risk the destruction of the U.S. patent system.
While Hillary Clinton’s record on patent matters is not extensive, when she was a U.S. Senator from the State of New York she never embraced patent reform despite it being an issue of great importance for the senior Senator from New York, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY). In fact, during the 2008 Presidential Campaign Hillary Clinton publicly expressed opposition to patent reform because, in her view, it was bad for innovators. Why would she now be taking a stance that would categorically be bad for innovators and innovation?
Perhaps this rather brief question and answer at a campaign stop in Iowa does accurately reflect Clinton’s view of the patents and patent portfolios of the high tech elite. Perhaps she believes patents are pawns in a game of collecting the tax revenue she believes these companies are illegally withholding by keeping funds offshore and outside of the jurisdiction of the Internal Revenue Service. If patents are to be used as pressure points against patent owners it should cause great concern within the patent community and lead to supporters with patent portfolios asking Clinton some direct questions about what she plans for their future.”
“Taking, Tort, or Crown Right? The Confused Early History of Government Patent Policy
Sean M. O’Connor
University of Washington – School of Law
John Marshall Review of Intellectual Property Law, Vol. 12, No. 1, pp. 145-204, 2012
University of Washington School of Law Research Paper No. 2013-24
Abstract: From the early days of the Republic, Congress and the federal courts grappled with the government’s rights to own or use patents it issued. Courts rejected the British “Crown Rights” rule that allowed the sovereign to practice whatever patents it issued. Instead, the federal government was conceptualized as a legal person on par with any other persons with regard to issued patents. But, this simple rule presented challenges as complexities arose in three intertwined patent rights scenarios. The first involved inventions by government employees. The second revolved around government and government contractor use of patents held by private citizens. And the third involved inventions by federal contractors and their employees arising under federal funding. While these three scenarios seem quite distinct today, nineteenth and early twentieth century courts often treated them as overlapping. The confusion was not resolved until the mid-twentieth century when a combination of executive branch and Congressional legislation set the roots of current government patent policy. This Article reviews the history in detail and illuminates current government patent policy debate occurring through such seemingly diverse cases as Stanford v. Roche and Zoltek Corp. v. United States.”

“The Telgraph .. Police drop investigation into Serco prisoner transport contract The outsourcing group said there was no evidence of individual or corporate wrongdoing
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 has come a long way since the 1960s when it ran [Resilience exercises and] the ‘four-minute warning’ system to alert the nation to a ballistic missile attack.
Today its £10.3bn order book is bigger than many countries’ defence budgets. It is bidding for a further £8bn worth of contracts and sees £16bn of ‘opportunities’.
Profit growth is less ballistic. The first-half pre-tax surplus rose 4% to £28.1m, net profits just 1% to £18m. Stripping out goodwill, the rise was 17%, with dividends up 12.5% to 0.81p.
Serco runs the Docklands Light Railway, five UK prisons, airport radar and forest bulldozers in Florida.
Chairman Kevin Beeston said: ‘We have virtually no debt and more than 600 contracts.’
The shares, 672p four years ago, rose 8 1/4p to 207 1/4p, valuing Serco at £880m or nearly 17 times earnings.

“Serco Combined Resilience Exercising
Types of Exercise Workshop Exercises These are structured discussion events where participants can explore issues in a less pressurized environment.
They are an ideal way of developing solutions, procedures and plans rather than the focus being on decision making. Table Top Exercises These involve a realistic scenario and will follow a time line, either in real-time or with time jumps to concentrate on the more important areas. The participants would be expected to be familiar with the plans and procedures that are being used although the exercise tempo and complexity can be adjusted to suit the current state of training and readiness. Simulation and media play can be used to support the exercise. Table-top exercises help develop teamwork and allow participants to gain a better understanding of their roles and that of other agencies and organisations.
Command/Control Post Exercises These are designed primarily to exercise the senior leadership and support staff in collective planning and decision making within a strategic grouping. Ideally such exercises would be run from the real command and control locations and using their communications and information systems. This could include a mix of locations and varying levels of technical simulation support. The Gold Standard system is flexible to allow the tempo and intensity to be adjusted to ensure maximum training benefit, or to fully test and evaluate the most important aspects of a plan. Such exercises also test information flow, communications, equipment, procedures, decision making and coordination.
Simulation and Media Support
The method of delivering an exercise is flexible and will be designed with the client to meet their requirements with options ranging from simple paper-based delivery through to full use of their real communications systems [Red Switch Network and Hawkeye onion router surveillance aircraft] and advance computer simulation [In Trump’s death pool and war room suites]. In addition, media play can also be added in the form of news injects and the provision of experienced journalists and television crews to help test procedures and also assist in training key staff.
