McConnell can quickly explain to the four active or retired Marine Generals in the Trump administration and, possibly, the manager of the Turnberry Trump Hotel, how Serco and ITT flew decoy-and-drone way points on 9/11 while an allegedly-blackmailed Bill Clinton was forced to watch the attacks from his suite in the Sheraton Port Douglas Hotel in Queensland and operatives for the Bin Laden Group guided the attacks from the Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel in the UAE.
McConnell looks forward to an invitation to brief President Trump in the presence of retired Marine Corps two-star Randolph “Tex” Alles, director of the United States Secret Service; retired Marine four-star general John F. Kelly, secretary of Homeland Security; retired Marine four-star general Defense Secretary Jim Mattis; and active-duty Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

“9/11 Flight Paths & Stewart Air Base
Contributed by Adam Letalik, Truth911.net
What happened at 8:36am on 9/11/01? American Airlines Flight 11 and United Airlines Flight 175 were the two airplanes that hit the World Trade Center Towers, on September 11th, 2001. The 9/11 Commission Report published the flight paths of both airplanes. The flight paths originate from Boston, and cross paths once before their paths meet again in New York City.
Not only did AA 11 and UA 175 both fly over New Windsor, NY, but they both flew over it at the same time, supposedly almost crashing into each other. This is an unlikely coincidence, since it would be far more likely that if the paths taken from Boston to New York crossed, that the planes would not cross paths at the same time. This occurred at approximately 8:36 am. Directly From USA Today:
The two hijacked jets that demolished the World Trade Center nearly crashed into each other while heading to their target, according to a Federal Aviation Administration employee at a regional control center. “The two aircraft got too close to each other down by Stewart” International Airport in New Windsor, N.Y., about 55 miles north of New York City, the employee told The Telegraph of Nashua.”
“In 1996, the Pickton brothers established the Piggy’s Palace Good Times Society, a [Liberal Party] federally registered charity with an alleged mandate to raise funds for service organizations through special events such as dances and shows. Neighbours complained of rowdiness, drug use, drunkenness and noise from parties attended by as many as 1,700 people, including bikers and sex trade workers from the Downtown Eastside. In 2000, the City of Port Coquitlam shut Piggy’s Palace [where the Liberal government of Canada and Serco operatives allegedly used Demon face-recognition software to blackmail witnesses to the torture murder of and the cannibal feasting on up to 60 prostitutes] down.”
“Group Starwood Hotels Group, owner of some of the world’s most prestigious hotels, has appointed Serco as preferred bidder for a £7m contract to provide a range of support services to the Sheraton Grand in Edinburgh, the Westin in Dublin and the 5 star Turnberry resort on Scotland’s west coast. The contract, which has a 5 year term, is an extension to services already provided to other hotels in the Starwood Group and includes buildings maintenance and security, engineering support and help desk services.”

Ametrican tycoon takes over famous Ayrshire links which will stage its fifth Open in the next eight years

Turnberry could be just the start of Donald Trump’s annexation of major golf. The American developer confirmed on Tuesday that he had bought himself a slice of The Open with the iconic Scottish links from Dubai in a cut-price £35.7 million “cash deal” – and now the billionaire expects to add the US Open to his empire.”
“ITT Corporation (ITT) is an American worldwide manufacturing company based in White Plains, New York, producing specialty components for the aerospace, transportation, energy and industrial markets.
The company was founded in 1920 as International Telephone & Telegraph. During the 1960s and 1970s, under the leadership of CEO Harold Geneen, the company rose to prominence as the archetypal conglomerate, deriving its growth from hundreds of acquisitions in diversified industries. ITT divested its telecommunications assets in 1986, and in 1995 spun off its non-manufacturing divisions, later to be purchased byStarwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide.”
“How did an inexperienced pilot perform an intricate crash landing? How did the pilot maneuver the plane with such skill that experienced military aviation experts noted skills similar to a ‘crack’ military pilot?7 How did Hani Hanjour, the alleged hijacker who flew Flight 77, make a 330 degree turn, away from the White House and south towards the Pentagon, while descending 2200 feet, advance to full throttle and perform a crash landing with exact precision into the Pentagon? CBSNews reported, “And the complex maneuver suggests the hijackers had better flying skills than many investigators first believed.”8 There is serious doubt that Hani Hanjour possessed the ability to maneuver a commercial plane in such an experienced fashion. According to another CBSNews report, managers at the flight school placed five complaints with the FAA expressing serious concern about his ability to fly safely.9 The Commission Report acknowledges his performance but does not acknowledge a possible problem with this information. The question remains unanswered by the United States government and invisible on mainstream media. Where are the media? _The media could have played an important role in the investigation of the Pentagon attack. In the months following the attack, few reports surfaced that questioned the validity of the independent investigation.10 Investigative reports emerged that addressed the skills of the alleged pilot and why Langley jets did not respond to the crisis. Rena Golden, executive vice-president and general manager of CNN International says, “Anyone who claims the U.S. media didn’t censor itself is kidding you.”11”
“Trump Picks Marine General, Top Gun Pilot as Secret Service Director
Military.com | 25 Apr 2017 | by Hope Hodge Seck
A retired Marine Corps two-star general will be the next director of the United States Secret Service, the White House announced Tuesday.
President Donald Trump picked retired major general and current acting deputy commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection Randolph “Tex” Alles for the post, adding another prominent Marine veteran to an administration rapidly filling with them.
Alles served in the Marine Corps for 35 years as a naval aviator, serving as an instructor at the U.S. Navy Fighter Weapons School — better known as Top Gun — over the course of his career.
According to an official biography, he earned his wings in 1976 and went on to fly five different fighter airframes during his service: the F-4 Phantom II, the Northrop F-5, the F-16 Fighting Falcon, the F/A-18 Hornet and the A-4 Skyhawk. In these aircraft, he amassed more than 5,000 flight hours, 300 of them in combat, according to the biography.
His positions of leadership within the Corps included command of the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing (Forward) and of Al Asad Air Base in Iraq; commanding general of the Marine Corps Warfighting Lab and vice chief of Naval Research; and director for Strategic Planning and Policy at U.S. Pacific Command, among others.
Alles’ military awards include the Distinguished Service Medal, the Defense Superior Service Medal with Oak Leaf cluster, the Legion of Merit with Combat “V” device and Gold Star, the Meritorious Service Medal with Gold Star, the Air Medal with strike/flight numeral 3, and the Navy Commendation Medal with Gold Star, according to his official biography.
He was recommended to lead the Secret Service by John F. Kelly, secretary of Homeland Security and a retired Marine four-star general who served as his contemporary, The New York Times reported.
Alles comes to the position after a multi-year series of scandals for the Secret Service that have eroded the secretive law enforcement agency’s public image.
A 2012 incident in which multiple agents were found to have solicited prostitutes in Colombia while on official business for then-President Barack Obama prompted congressional hearings and a wave of firings. More recently, in 2014, three agents were sent back to the U.S. after drunken behavior in the Netherlands ahead of a presidential visit.
Other incidents highlight apparent holes in security provided by the Secret Service. Last month, a man jumped the White House fence and was able to trespass on the grounds for 17 minutes before he was discovered, a security breach that Kelly took particular interest in, according to Times reports.
And in 2014, a mentally unstable man was able to climb over the fence on the White House’s north lawn and charge through the front door without being apprehended.
Alles will be at least the fourth Marine general to take a prominent position in the Trump administration, joining Kelly; Defense Secretary and retired Marine four-star Jim Mattis; and active-duty Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

“ITT to Spin Off Operations Into 3 Publicly Held Firms
June 14, 1995 |JAMES F. PELTZ | TIMES STAFF WRITER
In one of the most dramatic breakups in U.S. corporate history, ITT Corp. announced Tuesday that it plans to split itself into three companies and dismantle what has long been one of America’s most familiar conglomerates.
The New York-based company–a global hodgepodge that at times has owned everything from Wonder Bread to Avis rental cars–plans to divide its remaining insurance, industrial and hotel/entertainment divisions into separate publicly held companies, which have combined annual sales of $25 billion.
… “It’s a watershed event in corporate America,” said analyst Jay Cohen of Salomon Bros. Inc.
ITT’s breakup is further evidence that the gigantic conglomerate–so fashionable in U.S. business during the 1960s and ’70s–is largely a dinosaur today. It has become an enterprise that is too unwieldy in an age when corporations must be nimble and efficient, many experts believe. ..
Yet the bust-up of ITT–which today owns Sheraton hotels, Hartford insurance and such gaming properties as Caesars World–had been expected. Long prodded by disgruntled investors who felt the company’s stock price understated the true value of the firm’s various assets, ITT had hinted for months that it might split itself up.
When the announcement finally came Tuesday, investors cheered the move and boosted ITT’s stock price $6.25 a share to $115.50, in New York Stock Exchange composite trading.”
“Tracey McVicar on her journey from Wall Street wizard to inner-city teacher to one of B.C.’s most influential board directors
It took one book to radically shake up Tracey McVicar’s life.
Thanks to Ordinary Resurrections: Children in the Years of Hope, based on the experiences of educator Jonathan Kozol in a South Bronx school, McVicar left 12 years of investment banking during the frenzied technology run-up of the ’90s to teach kids in an inner-city New York City school in 2001. Even though she later returned to finance (she’s now the Vancouver managing partner of private equity firm CAI Capital Management Co.), it’s a career curveball that she describes as “living a dream.”
While she found investment banking rewarding and enjoyed how the high-performing environment attracted smart people, often with a good sense of humour, McVicar laments the singular focus on making money. The business, says the UBC commerce grad, is “bereft of helping others by its nature. To be really good, you have to be consumed by it and really live it.” She describes an environment where people were hiring Bryan Adams for their weddings, and everybody one-upped each other on their latest luxury vehicle. “I wondered to myself, ‘Just who are you?’ I felt I was going in a direction that wouldn’t be very fulfilling later.
Turns out “fulfillment” is a recurring theme over our brunch of poached eggs and bacon at Mosaic restaurant in Vancouver’s Hyatt hotel. McVicar—who worked at RBC Capital Markets from 1990 to 1997 and Raymond James Ltd. (and its predecessor, Goepel Shields & Partners) from 1997 to 2001—set up NYC-headquartered CAI in Vancouver after returning to B.C. following 9/11. “Of course that changed everything,” says McVicar, who was in Brooklyn at the time of the attacks although had been due to pick up some computers, donated to her school, at the World Trade Center that morning. “My idealistic dream of teaching in the inner city, earning $28,000 a year, living in New York, was just that—a dream. I realized that both me and the school would be much better off if I went back to finance, back to Canada and donated that amount every year instead.””
“THE MT INTERVIEW: CHRIS HYMAN RESOLUTELY FIT, ABSTEMIOUS, RELIGIOUS, THE CEO OF SERVICE-SUPPLY FIRM SERCO – 4TH IN OUR MOST ADMIRED COMPANIES LIST – IS AN UNUSUAL BUSINESSPERSON IN AN UNFASHIONABLE SECTOR. SURVIVING 9/11 REINFORCED HIS BELIEF IN ‘PEOPLE FIRST, PROFITS SECOND’. JUST DON’T CALL IT OUTSOURCING. by Chris Blackhurst Published: 01 Dec 2007 Last Updated: 09 Oct 2013 In 1994, he was head-hunted by Serco to be its European finance director, although, as he puts it: ‘I found Serco – the company fitted everything I was looking for.’ When he joined, annual turnover was £238m. In 2006, it was £2.5bn.
On 11 September 2001, he was in the World Trade Center. He was on the 47th floor when the plane hit, talking to Serco shareholders. They got out – but not the people in his previous meeting. He does not like talking about that terrible day. ‘It confirmed my faith. It renewed my zest for getting the balance right and made me realise that time is not always your own. It made me think about my family and my health more – and about putting the balance back. You know, it’s not a bad thing, to step back sometimes.'”
“For immediate release: May 3, 2001 MDA Wins Key U.S. Aviation Contract Richmond, B.C. – MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (TSE: MDA) announced today the company has been awarded a contract by the United States Air Force to develop a system to be used by specialists at Air Force bases to design Instrument Approach Procedures (IAPs).
IAPs are published instructions to pilots specifying a series of aircraft maneuvers that must be executed for the aircraft to transition safely from an en route airway to a runway final approach when flying by instruments. MDA’s system ingests digital terrain and elevation data, air navigation data (such as the locations of navigation aids, runways, buildings and towers) to build and display a virtual model of the physical environment surrounding an airport. It then develops the complex surfaces that define a safe approach corridor for any of the dozens of IAP variants, and determines whether any of the defined surfaces are penetrated by terrain or man-made obstacles. It flags these incursions to the operator, who can quickly modify the approach procedure through a drag-and-drop user interface.
This initial award, valued at $2.9 million (CDN), consists of a fixed price element to develop, integrate, and test the system. The next phase will include installation, government testing, and operator training. The contract includes an option for the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to adapt the system for their needs. The U.S. Air Force also has options to field the successful system at up to 108 air bases around the world, and to award T&M support contracts for up to 8 years. MDA plans to team up with Air Navigation Data (AND) of Ottawa to offer a custom solution, based on AND’s “Final Approach” product. MDA President and CEO Daniel Friedmann said: “This is a significant project for MDA that has the potential to improve the safety of air transportation for many other air forces and civil aviation authorities world wide.”
“DHS ICE OTD … Since 1986, through various contracts, Serco has provided full training lifecycle support for all areas of this key Law Enforcement organization including Inspections, Border Patrol, Enforcement, and DHS operations at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Academy in Glynco, GA. .. Serco developed and scripted three scenarios based on negligent practices identified by the IG report that have resulted in the use of lost or uncontrolled weapons for robbery, murder, and the accidental death of a child. We used creative animation techniques, sound effects, music, and talented voice actors playing multiple characters to create an emotional appeal much different—and infinitely more powerful—from the standard WBT offering.
Serco has trained more than 400,000 DHS students in every region and district, at every land, air and sea border crossing, in classrooms, through WBT, train-the-trainer programs, on-the-job training and through the implementation of performance support systems in a blended learning environment. In collaboration with ICE OTD, our latest efforts have resulted in the accreditation and completion of three programs, including HSI FOTP, ICE OTD IDC, and ICE OPR. Serco was integral to the ICE team that was recognized by the 2012 “Excellence in Law Enforcement” Award given to the ICE Domestic Field Operations Training Program (DFTOP) Accreditation Project for having greatly improved ICE training, increasing operational efficacy and efficiency, and minimizing safety issues to ICE officers and the public.”
