#2958: AD Links Liberal Pig Farm Hazing To CAI Tracey Bridge, Christy Pension Frauds, Trump’s Pal Silverstein

To Whom It May Concern:
Field McConnell – United States Marine and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – has linked the Liberal hazing of B.C. pig farm ‘guests’ (‘96-‘02) to CAI managing partner Tracey McVicar who allegedly used federal-bridge communications to blackmail sexual-assault victims including former B.C. deputy premier Christy Clark into ongoing fraud on public pension-fund investees and the coordinated attack on Donald Trump’s pal Larry Silverstein with the demolition (Pull it!) of the Salomon Brothers (WTC7) building in New York on 9/11.
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, on how to win the war with CAI private-equity special investors and their allegedly-extorted Liberal pig-farm guests.
“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 governments of Canada and British Columbia allegedly used Serco Demon face-recognition software to blackmail witnesses to the torture murder of and the cannibal feasting on up to 60 prostitutes] down.”
“Christina Joan “Christy” Clark, MLA (born October 29, 1965) is a Canadian politician who currently serves as the 35th Premier of British Columbia, Canada. Clark was sworn in as premier on March 14, 2011, after she won the leadership of the British Columbia Liberal Party in the 2011 leadership election on February 26, 2011. She is the second woman to serve as premier of British Columbia, after Rita Johnston in 1991, however Clark is so far the only female premier of BC to carry an election in her own right.
Clark served as a Member of the Legislature from 1996 to 2005, serving as deputy premier from 2001 to 2005 during the first term of Gordon Campbell‘s government. She left politics in 2005, and became the host of an afternoon radio talk show. At the time of her leadership victory, Clark was not a member of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia. She re-entered the legislature after winning a by-election on May 11, 2011, in Vancouver-Point Grey, the seat left vacant by Campbell. .. Clark was born on October 29, 1964 in Burnaby, British Columbia, the daughter of Mavis Audrey (née Bain) and Jim Clark. Her father was a teacher and a three-time candidate for the legislative assembly, and her mother, who was born in Glasgow, Scotland, was a marriage and family therapist in Vancouver. On June 8, 2016, she shared that, as a 13-year-old girl on her way to work at her first job, she was forcibly grabbed and pulled into some bushes; she also shared that she had been subject to other sexual offences throughout her life and that she had not felt able to share this until a campus sexual assault bill proposed by the Green Party came up.
Clark graduated from Burnaby South Senior Secondary before attending Simon Fraser University (SFU), the Sorbonne in France and the University of Edinburgh in Scotland  to major in political science and religious studies. She did not graduate from any post-secondary institution.
In 2001, Clark gave birth to her only child, Hamish Marissen-Clark, with then husband Mark Marissen. Clark was the second woman in Canadian history to give birth to a child while serving as a cabinet minister, after Pauline Marois, then a Quebec provincial minister, in 1985.”
“Sexual assault allegations against Donald Trump: 15 women say he groped, kissed, or assaulted them
Updated by Libby Nelson and Emily Crockett

Donald Trump wanted everyone to believe that he was just boasting when he talked in a leaked recording from 2005 about the way he treated women: “Just kiss, I don’t even wait … Grab ’em by the pussy … When you’re a star, they let you do anything.” But when Anderson Cooper pressed him on it during the second presidential debate, he said he’d never followed through: “Nobody has more respect for women than I do,” Trump said. And when Cooper asked, “Have you ever done those things?” Trump answered, “No, I have not.”
Yet more than a dozen women have come forward to say he did. The New York Times published a report featuring two women who said Trump groped them or kissed them against their will. A third woman told the Palm Beach Post that Trump had grabbed her from behind at Mar-a-Lago. A writer for People magazine said Trump grabbed her and kissed her while she was interviewing him for a story related to his first year of marriage with his wife, Melania Trump.
And one woman, Summer Zervos, is now suing President-elect Trump for defamation because he called her and his other accusers liars.
Trump also has a long, well-documented history of other questionable behavior with women. His ex-wife, Ivana Trump, said in a divorce deposition that he raped her, describing a violent sexual assault. (She now says the story was “totally without merit.”) More broadly, Trump has relentlessly objectified the women around him and, whenever possible, tried to shape policy at his companies and businesses to reward the type of women he finds beautiful.”

“The making of CAI
At or about the same time that Restler was guiding the privatization of Hydro’s gas division, he decided to leave Shearson Lehman Brothers. Along with about a half dozen others from business and Wall Street, he started a small, boutique investment firm called CAI Capital Management.
CAI opened its doors in 1989, and began looking for both investors and investment opportunities. It found both in Canada. MacDonald Dettwiler and Associates, the Richmond-based firm specializing in satellite imaging, [Bin Laden drag and drop,] space robotics and environmental monitoring, was one of the earliest companies with which Restler and CAI held discussions. Talks remained exploratory until 1999, when the New York firm and another investor together acquired a one-third interest in the Richmond company.
Restler soon took a seat on MDA’s board of directors, and a year later he was joined by David Emerson — a CAI investor and, since 2008, a “senior advisor” at the equity firm’s Vancouver office.
By 2004, CAI (with a substantial profit) had exited its position in MacDonald Dettwiler, and that same year Emerson won election as a Liberal Member of Parliament for Vancouver-Kingsway. (He crossed the floor days after the 2006 general election to join the victorious Conservatives and retain his seat at the cabinet table. Rather than face his constituents and answer for that controversial decision, Emerson retired prior to the 2008 election.)”
“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.””
“William L. Sauder, OBC (May 27, 1926 – December 19, 2007) was formerly the chairman of Sauder Industries Ltd. andInternational Forest Products Limited Sauder graduated from the University of British Columbia in 1948, where he was a member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity, with a Bachelor of Commerce degree, and later returned to the University of British Columbia as a member of the Board of Governors. He was ultimately appointed Chair of the Board, and later elected Chancellor, a position he held from 1996 to 2002. He was awarded an honorary Doctor of Laws degree by UBC in 1990. On June 5, 2003, Sauder donated a $20 million endowment and the University of British Columbia’s Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration which was subsequently renamed theSauder School of Business. His gift of $20 million was the largest single private donation ever made to a Canadian business school at the time.”
“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.

“Trump pal Larry Silverstein wants to build new FBI HQ
By Wayne Madsen
Posted on February 24, 2017
Some members of the 9/11 Truth movement may be sorely disappointed now that a major bête noire of the events of September 11, 2001, is one of four finalists to build the new FBI building and associated campus. The current FBI building on Pennsylvania Avenue in downtown Washington is no longer suitable for the bureau due to a host of problems, including concrete falling from its facade and an often-times failing and putrid-smelling sewage system.
Larry Silverstein, the chairman of Silverstein Properties and who Donald Trump called “a great guy, a good guy . . . a friend of mine,” is a finalist for the new headquarters, which may be built in either Virginia or Maryland. Virginia is seen as an odds-on favorite for the new FBI headquarters. Although Maryland and Virginia both voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, Trump lost the Old Dominion by a razor-thin margin. Also, Mrs. Clinton’s running mate, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, is up for re-election in 2018. If Virginia were able to land the FBI headquarters, with all the associated construction and other jobs, it would be a feather in the cap for any GOP challenger for Kaine’s Senate seat.
Silverstein was the lessee of the World Trade Center who ordered Building 7 of the complex to be “pulled” during the afternoon of September 11. Building 7 received little damage from either the impact of the aircraft on the twin towers or the subsequent collapse of the towers. The obvious implosion of Building 7 has led many professional architects and engineers to believe that the building was demolished on purpose, which convinced many Americans that 9/11 was an “inside job.” Silverstein and members of his family cautiously avoided being anywhere near the World Trade Center on the morning of September 11. Just six weeks prior to 9/11, Silverstein received a 99-year lease for the World Trade Center, the largest real estate deal in the history of New York and one of the largest privatization deals ever consummated by any government. Silverstein ultimately received some $5 billion in insurance payments as a result of the 9/11 attack. The cost of Silverstein’s initial lease was $3.2 billion. In 2005, Trump briefly considered building two office towers on the site of the World Trade Center, the development rights for which are owned by Silverstein.
Could Trump soon add another Pennsylvania Avenue property to his real estate portfolio? Trump International Hotel (left) may have Trump real estate company in the block now housing the FBI headquarters (right), which is to be demolished with construction of a new campus. The FBI building is diagonally opposite from the Trump hotel.
According to The Washington Post, Trump toyed with the idea of bidding on the FBI project prior to his running for president. However, Trump still has some skin in the game because Steven Roth, his friend and business partner in Manhattan real estate, is also one of the four finalists for the FBI project. Roth is the founder of Vornado Realty Trust, a partner of the Charles E. Smith realty empire, which is a major real estate developer and commercial property owner in the Washington, DC area. Roth’s Vornado is also a business partner of Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and White House adviser.
If Vornado were to win the contract for the new FBI building, it would also acquire the rights to the prime real estate where the current FBI headquarters is located. The FBI building is diagonally opposite from the Trump International Hotel, located in the Old Post Office Pavilion. The Trump family having such prominent twin real estate interests on Pennsylvania Avenue between the U.S. Capitol and the White House would certainly raise issues of nepotism and Trump financially benefiting from serving as president.

“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.”
“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.”
