Kelly 203: Serco’s Sherman Patentee Snuff Film, Clinton’s Tencent Wagering, Marine Corps Digital 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 2, 2018
Dear General Kelly:
Please accept Brief 203 from Field McConnell – United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – on the apparent M.O. of Serco‘s CAI private-equity investors who allegedly formed a SWAT team from the assignees of various patented devices including Red.Com, Inc.’s Modular digital camera and cellular phone US 20170171371 A1 and Tencent (Bvi) Limited’s Instant messaging system and method US 8566404 B2 to record a snuff film of the torture murders of Barry and Honey Sherman at their Toronto home on or about 13th December, 2017.
McConnell claims that Serco‘s CAI investor, 7th SACEUR and former director of MGM Mirage and AOL, the late General Alexander Haig, embedded Howard Lutnick’s Real-time interactive wagering on event outcomes CA 2460367 A in Virtual Command Centers (VCCs) and FBI Law Enforcement Online (LEO) networks to allow the Greek Life associates of Bill Clinton (Phi Beta Kappa) and Wilbur Ross’s (Kappa Beta Phi) and Tencent’s junket players in Macau and Las Vegas to bet on the times of victim deaths or body counts during the mass casualty events of 9/11.
McConnell claims that Serco CAI investor and former Nortel director Yves Fortier equipped former Marine Corps Captain Oliver “Buck” Revell, the former Executive Assistant Director – Investigations (SES-6) in charge of FBI Investigative, Counter-Terrorism, Counter-Intelligence, Legal Attaché and INTERPOL operations and the founder of LEO in 1995 and Imagis Technologies in 1999, with Nortel’s Method for efficient management of certificate revocation lists and update information US 5699431 A so Revell’s could jam the Digital Fires unit at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton during the patentee snuff-film murders of nearly 3,000 victims on 9/11 and the two Shermans in Toronto in December 2017.
McConnell reminds you that former Marine Corps Captain Buck Revell 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 and saved them from the bombing over Lockerbie, Scotland at 19:02:50 which generated a body count of 270 victims (243 passengers + 16 crew + 11 people on ground).
McConnell claims that Serco CAI investor, the late Walter Wriston, the former chairman and CEO of Citicorp and its principal subsidiary Citibank, used Checkfree Corp.’s [Now Fiserv] Coordinated rebalancing by money manager portfolio management systems and a master overlay manager portfolio management system US 7729969 B1 to ‘drift’ proceeds of crimes into the private accounts of individuals associated with body-count wagering, patentee snuff films (cf. B.C. Piggy Palace and Starnet Communications) and child pornography.
Given this is the 203nd Kelly public briefing with ample opportunities for traitors suspected of a role in fraud and/or extortion of the patentees and assignees registered at the United States Patent and Trademark Office and the associated events of 9/11 – the first live broadcast mass snuff film in human history – to rebut our allegations, please arrange for the former Marine Corps Captain, Oliver Revell to appear before an appropriate military tribunal to be charged under 18 U.S. Code § 2382 – Misprision of treason.

“Barry and Honey Sherman victims of ‘targeted’ double killing, police say

TORONTO — Billionaire generic drug tycoon Barry Sherman and his wife Honey were victims of a targeted double killing but no suspects have been identified, Toronto police said on Friday.
Det. Sgt. Susan Gomes, of the homicide squad, said thousands of hours of investigation have led police to that conclusion in a case that has grabbed public attention both for who the high-profile victims were and the mystery surrounding how they died.
“I believe in the six weeks of evidence that we’ve obtained that they were targeted,” Gomes said. “Honey and Barry Sherman were found deceased in the lower-level pool area, hanging by belts from a poolside railing in a semi-seated position on the pool deck.”
Barry Sherman, 75, founder of Canadian pharmaceutical giant Apotex, and Honey Sherman, 70, were dressed when found, police said.
Autopsy results revealed they died by “ligature neck compression,” Gomes said. However, it was initially unclear whether the couple died by double suicide, homicide-suicide, or double homicide, leading police to initially classify the deaths as “suspicious.”
“Facts guide our focus,” Gomes said. “Conjecture and speculation have no place.”
The couple was last seen alive on the evening of Dec. 13. Police, responding to a 911 call, found the bodies on Dec. 15 in their three-storey north-end home. Since then, investigators have been scouring the house, which was only released Friday morning to the family.
“There are no signs of forced entry on all access points to the home,” Gomes said.
Gomes refused to say if anything was taken from the house or reports that marks were found on their wrists.
The Sherman family, upset by initial media reports that the deaths were a murder-suicide, hired their own team of investigators but Gomes said contact with relatives has been consistent and ongoing. She said she understood their concerns about the pace of the highly complex probe.
“For them, it’s been difficult to balance their patience with their frustration with us and our investigation, not unlike any other family who has suffered such a sudden and profound loss,” Gomes said. “They have been understanding, co-operative and hopeful that this investigation can give them some answers.”
In a statement Friday, the couple’s children said they had expected confirmation by police of what they had suspected from the start — that their parents were victims of a double killing.
“This conclusion was expressed by the family from the outset and is consistent with the findings of the independent autopsy and investigation,” their statement said. “The family continues to support the Toronto police service in their efforts to seek justice for their parents and pursue those responsible for these unspeakable crimes.”
Gomes refused to discuss any suspects, beyond saying they hadn’t zeroed in on any.
“We haven’t developed any suspects outside of understanding that people are outstanding for, or a person is outstanding for, this event.”
She also gave only vague information about some of the evidence police have gathered or seized from the home, a second Sherman property and Apotex. Items include 2,000 hours of security video from commercial and residential properties.
The detective, who said officers were speaking to a “significant list” of people, appealed to anyone with any information that might help the investigation to come forward.
Sherman was well known for his many legal tangles, a fact Gomes alluded to.
“Legal complexities in some executions have been challenging, given the litigious nature of Barry Sherman’s businesses, in particular the search and seizure of electronics in Barry Sherman’s workspace at Apotex.”
“A meal with Frank D’Angelo: Pitchman, entrepreneur, auteur
Over a boozy lunch, Canada’s beverage baron explains his latest reinvention and calls upon his Hollywood friends
February 24, 2016
This is an interesting point. D’Angelo is sparing little expense on these films, despite their tight shooting schedules, renting high-end Sony 6K Red digital cameras, and at times using as many as 150 extras in a scene. His latest film required four drones, three jibs and eight cameras, he says. Throw in the salaries for his increasingly sprawling, big-name casts, and it’s easy to believe his budgets are in the millions.
Yet his return on investment is harder to conceptualize. D’Angelo’s movies are all available for purchase on iTunes, and he says they do a brisk business on the video-on-demand services offered by Canadian cable companies. (A spokesman for Rogers on Demand wouldn’t provide numbers, but said Real Gangsters had indeed performed well, for a Canadian independent feature. The subsequent movies—not so much. But expectations are bullish for Sicilian Vampires, a “punch you in the face” sort of title, he said.) D’Angelo also points to a pending distribution deal with an unnamed company for all five of his works. “We’re not gambling on them. We’ll do very well. We have star power.”
The “we” in this case is Frank and his best friend, Barry Sherman. The chairman of Apotex Inc., Canada’s largest generic drug maker, Sherman is ranked as the country’s 11th-wealthiest person, with a net worth of US$5.3 billion. “He’s a brilliant man. He’s partners in everything that I do,” says D’Angelo. “I trust his judgment. I’m out there. He’s the ABS brakes on my situation as a human being.” They met in 2002, when Sherman was selling a factory he had acquired in Tiverton, Ont., that also contained a small brewery. The relationship blossomed, with Sherman’s Wasanda Enterprises extending more and more financing for D’Angelo’s beverage dreams. At the time of the $120-million 2007 bankruptcy, Sherman was really the only creditor, and held the paper on everything Frank owned, including his home at the time, in Toronto’s Forest Hill neighbourhood.
Sherman rarely gives interviews, but D’Angelo is able to get him on the phone in short order and twist his arm. In the course of a five-minute conversation, he describes Frank as a “hard worker” at least eight times. Their business past was a disappointment, he acknowledges. “Some calculation errors were made that resulted in a substantial loss,” says Sherman, specifying that D’Angelo spent far too much promoting his brands and not enough distributing them. Yet that has no bearing on their current partnership. “When I make decisions, it’s always looking forwards, not backwards,” says Sherman. “And in terms of the films, I believe in him. The value substantially exceeds the costs.” The profits have yet to materialize, but Sherman doesn’t seem too worried. “I like helping people and Frank deserves to succeed.” We should all be lucky enough to have a friend like Barry.”

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.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. ….
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.
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 on the Attorney General’s Economic Crime Council and as Chairman, INTERPOL Conference on International Financial Crime in Cannes. He was a member of the National Foreign Intelligence Board, the Terrorist Crisis Management Committee and the Group on Narcotics. 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.
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 NCIC database currently consists of seventeen files. The seven property files contain records of stolen articles, boats, guns, license plates, parts, securities, and vehicles. The ten person files are the Convicted Person on Supervised Release, Convicted Sexual Offender Registry, Foreign Fugitive, Immigration Violator, Missing Person, Protection Order, Unidentified Person, U.S. Secret Service, Violent Gang and Terrorist Organization, and Wanted Person Files. The Interstate Identification Index, which contains automated criminal history record information, is also accessible through the NCIC network.
Now, I would like to outline some of the NCIC files and features that assist in immigration and border security. The Foreign Fugitive File, established July 1, 1987, contains information on persons wanted in connection with offenses committed outside the United States. There are two types of records in the Foreign Fugitive File: Canadian records and International Criminal Police Organization (otherwise known as INTERPOL) records. Canadian records contain information on persons wanted for violations of the criminal code of Canada based upon Canada-wide warrants. INTERPOL records contain information on persons wanted by authorities in other countries. The INTERPOL National Central Bureau of any country may issue a wanted flyer, known as a red notice, for a fugitive wanted within its respective country. The red notice requests the arrest of the fugitive with the intention that extradition will occur. Upon receipt of a red notice, the United States INTERPOL National Central Bureau reviews the information and enters an NCIC Foreign Fugitive File record if the following conditions are met: 1) the wanting country has an outstanding arrest warrant that charges a crime which would be a felony if committed in the United States; and 2) the wanting country is a signatory to an extradition treaty/convention with the United States. On October 29th, there were 1,543 records in the Foreign Fugitive File.”

“Nevada Gaming Commission OKs record $5.5 million fine against CG Technology
By CHRIS SIEROTY LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
January 23, 2014 – 6:44 pm
The Nevada Gaming Commission on Thursday unanimously approved a record $5.5 million fine levied against the race and sports book subsidiary of Cantor Fitzgerald L.P. related to illegal bets by a top executive.
“Today is a bad day,” Commissioner Tony Alamo said. “This is an enormously large sum of money. This is a revenue get. That’s not our goal. Our goal is to punish” those who violate state gaming regulations.
Alamo credited CG Technology’s CEO Lee Amaitis for attending the hearing but cautioned him that this incident was national news and “gave Nevada a black eye.” Alamo said he wouldn’t want to see CG Technology come before the commission for a similar incident in the future.
“I am not afraid of revocation” of a company’s license,” Alamo said.
Chairman Peter Bernhard said he was initially reluctant to support the stipulation because of the damage done to the industry by the company. But Bernhard eventually supported it because it is the largest fine ever against a gaming company. He said the $5.5 million fine sends a message that “people will be held accountable.”
The three-member Nevada Gaming Control Board could have also recommended revoking or suspending CG Technology’s license.
Amaitis attended the hearing but did not address the commission. He also declined to comment on the commission’s decision following the 20-minute hearing.
The Gaming Control Board’s 18-count compliant outlining the charges against CG Technology, formerly Cantor Gaming, was made public Jan. 8. The settlement was released Jan. 13.
In the complaint, regulators said CG Technology failed to prevent Michael Colbert from operating an illegal sports betting ring that made an estimated $34 million in bets. Colbert, formerly risk management director and vice president of the former Cantor Gaming in Las Vegas, worked with three men who worked as messengers to place wagers for Gadoon Kyrollos, a high-level sports bettor.
Paul Sexton, Robert Drexler and Thomas Ludford acted as messenger bettors, according to the complaint. Sexton pleaded guilty to fourth-degree money-laundering and forfeited $600,000.
In 2013, Colbert pleaded guilty in federal court in New York to one felony count of conspiracy for his role in the betting ring. He awaits sentencing.
The settlement says CG Technology admitted guilt in 14 counts of the complaint and concurred that the board could prove one count directly relating to Colbert’s oversight of the illegal wagering operation. The company did not admit or deny allegations in three other counts.
Both Amaitis and Cantor Fitzgerald Chairman Howard Lutnick signed off on the settlement.
Before the CG Technology fine, the largest fine ever approved by Nevada gaming regulators was $5 million in 2003 against MGM Mirage, now MGM Resorts International. The company was fined for failing to file 15,000 currency transaction reports with the Internal Revenue Service.
Owners of the Stardust paid a $3 million fine in 1984 to settle a complaint over allegations that the now-imploded Strip casino’s former owner failed to prevent mob-related skimming of gaming revenue.
In 1988, Ralph Engelstad, late owner of the Imperial Palace, was accused of damaging the state’s reputation for holding two Adolf Hitler birthday parties at the casino in separate years. He paid a $1.5 million fine.
The Palms paid a $1 million fine in 2013 to settle a complaint resulting from an investigation that discovered drug sales and prostitution at clubs on the property.
Cantor Fitzgerald, founded in 1945, is one of the largest private financial services firms on Wall Street. Lutnick has led the company’s expansion over the past decade into investment banking, commercial real estate and gaming.
CG Technology operates race and sports books at the M Resort, Hard Rock Hotel, Tropicana Las Vegas, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, The Venetian, Palms and Silverton, and provides information as Las Vegas Sports Consultants and offers mobile wagering.
The bookmaker also has operations in China and the Bahamas.”
“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.”
