Kelly 244: Nick Soames’s Mendenhall Baby, ConAir Marcy’s Princess Di, Serco’s SES Novichok Toyshop
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
March 31, 2018
Dear General Kelly:
Please accept Brief 244 from Field McConnell – United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – on the late Victor Rothschild’s colleagues at Serco‘s investment banker N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd. who apparently sent Nicholas (“Nick”) Soames, one of Winston Churchill’s grandsons, to Washington in 1976 to videotape charter members of the U.S. Senior Executive Service (SES), including Field McConnell’s sister Kristine Marcy, at Mendenhall’s Baby or pedophile oath rituals where SES insiders could later be blackmailed into the outsourcing of key government departments in the Five Eyes countries including the U.K. Ministry of Defence 1 (MD1), also known as “Churchill’s Toyshop”, a British weapon research and development organisation of WWII; the U.S. National Visa Center; the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and various prisoner transport systems for use in long-range murder for hire.
McConnell claims that Soames, a former Minister of State for the U.K. Armed Forces (1994-1997), used Marcy’s SES agents in the ConAir (JPATS) and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) for an alleged “Boston Brakes” Toyshop assassination of Princess Diana on August 31, 1997 after she appears to have threatened to expose the names of pedophile oath-takers in Serco’s Five Eyes blackmail ring
McConnell claims that Soames has established an online Churchill’s Toyshop at the offices of Northern Trust, Serco‘s Alien Property Custodian in Chicago, where SES bureaucrats can identify the patentees who can license technologies for use by ConAir SWAT teams listed per some examples below…
1. Original Assignee Mercedes Benz Lenkungen GmbH’s Valve arrangement for power-assisted steering systems 2002-02-12US6345682B1 Grant – allegedly used to steer Princess Diana’s Mercedes into
2. Technology Patents LLC’s Land mine arming/disarming system 2000-01-18 US6014932A Grant – allegedly one of the reasons why Nick Soames would have wanted the anti-landmine campaigner Princess Diana killed;
3. Howard Lutnick’s Real-time interactive wagering on event outcomes CA 2460367 A – allegedly used by Serco‘s CAI private equity investor, the late General Alexander Haig; the Greek Life associates of Bill Clinton (Phi Beta Kappa) and Wilbur Ross (Kappa Beta Phi; note his 25 years at N M Rothschild!) and, recently appointed Serco director Dr. Pamela Drew for body-count wagering on 9/11 through the federal bridge war rooms of Boeing Phantom Works in Boeing’s new Chicago HQ;
4. Conair Prisoner tracking and warning system and corresponding methods US6054928A with expert-system (i.e. including fuzzy logic, reinforcement learning, neural networks, artificial intelligence, etc.) algorithms – allegedly used to coordinate the murder of Princess Diana and the Novichok attack in Salisbury;
5. Evonik Degussa GmbH’s Pyrogenically produced silicon dioxide powder and dispersion thereof US7537833B2 – allegedly used as a calling card for attacks on Serco enemies by ConAir SWAT teams equipped with CBRNE – Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive materials;
6. Northwestern University’s Metal organic frameworks for the catalytic detoxification of chemical warfare nerve agents US20170128761A1 – allegedly used to conceal stocks of powdered Novichok nerve agent for the recent attack on Sergei Skripal, a retired Russian military intelligence colonel who spied for Britain;
7. QinetiQ North America Inc’s Social Engineering Protection Appliance US9123027B2 –allegedly used by the UK’s National Crime Squad (NCS); SES alumnus Robert Mueller as head of the Special Counsel investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 United States elections and Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell, former Marine Corps Captain and former Executive Director (SES-6) for FBI Criminal Investigative, Counter-Terrorism and Counter-Intelligence, to the theft of oath-taking images from Facebook and the silencing of witnesses to ConAir assassinations and a Five Eyes pedophile ring.
McConnell reminds you that Buck Revell (warned by Serco‘s Rothschild bankers?) 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 (a few weeks after McConnell told his sister how to drone ConAir aircraft) and saved his family from a SMEAC* Unabomb event over Lockerbie, Scotland at 19:02:50 with a body count of 270 = 243 passengers + 16 crew + 11 people on the ground.
With this 244th Kelly public briefing and references at http://www.abeldanger.org, we ask you to find the reasons why McConnell’s niece Jessica Marcy was referred to as a Mendenhall’s Baby in the late Judy Mann’s article, ‘Now You Can Be Both’ Mother, Professional’, Washington Post, August 8, 1979 and investigate Nicholas and Rupert Soames (CEO of Serco!!!) for their apparent blackmail of McConnell’s sister Kristine Marcy, the most powerful woman in Washington, and her SES colleagues in re 30 years of ConAir SWAT and murder for hire.

“Sir Arthur Nicholas Winston Soames (born 12 February 1948), sometimes known as Nick Soames, is a British Conservative Party politician who has been the Member of Parliament for Mid Sussex since 1997. He is a grandson of Winston Churchill.
Soames was first elected to Parliament in 1983 for Crawley. He was Minister of State for the Armed Forces from 1994 to 1997 in the government of John Major. His main political interests are defence, international relations, rural affairs and industry. ..
In 1970, he was appointed Equerry to HRH The Prince of Wales; he has remained a close friend of the Prince ever since and publicly criticised Diana, Princess of Wales, during the couple’s estrangement. When Diana first accused the Prince of Wales of adultery with Camilla Parker Bowles, Soames told the BBC that the accusation, and Diana’s fear of being slandered by her husband’s courtiers, stemmed merely from Diana’s mental illness, and “the advanced stages of paranoia”. Charles later admitted his adultery and Soames apologised. When questioned by the inquest into the death of Diana, Soames said that he saw his job as “to speak up for the Prince of Wales”. He denied threatening Diana [who may have been seen as a prospective whistleblower for ConAir pedophile or Mendenhall oath rituals], and warning her, “accidents happen” in the months before she died.
In 1972, he left Kensington Palace and the army to work as a stockbroker. In 1974, he became a personal assistant; first to Sir James Goldsmith and then in 1976 to United States Senator Mark Hatfield, whose employ he left in 1978 [was he at Kristine Marcy’s Mendenhall Baby conception in November 1978?] to become a director of Bland Welch, Lloyd’s Brokers. Between 1979–81, he was an assistant director of the Sedgwick Group. He fought Central Dunbartonshire in Scotland in 1979, where Labour’s Hugh McCartney defeated him by 12,003 votes.”

“‘Now You Can Be Both’ Mother, Professional
By Judy Mann August 8, 1979
Kristine Mary, now a supergrade in the Office of Personnel Management, had her first chile 2 1/2 years ago, when she was a budget examiner in the Office of Management and Budget. At nights she was finishing up her law degree at George Washington University.
“My baby was due the 17th of December. My last exam was on the 15th. I went to work, took off a little early, took my exam, went home,wondering why I felt so bad. Imimmediately, I went into labor. It blew everybody’s mind that I could wrap up everything at work, wrap up everything at school and have my baby. That was of the all-time coup.”
She had succeeded, beyond a question, in proving that she could do it all — that she could work during her entire pregnancy in the high-pressure atmosphere of OMB and also finish law school.
Kristine Marcy’s second child was due August 5 and again, she has worked throughout her pregnancy, this time as assistant director for human resources for veterans and labor programs. She has turned 32 and has been in demanding, supergrade jobs since her daughter was 8 months old. Her husband, Eric Marcy, is an assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia in the fraud division.
Kristine Marcy has noticed subtle but important changes in her working environment since her last pregnancy. People, she says, are a little more realistic about working mothers and pregnant women. Maybe a little more relaxed about it.And she says she doesn’t feel she has to prove a point anymore.
“There’s just a lot more familiarity with pregnant women in major jobs around government. It’s not such a shock.” Several years ago, she believes, women felt they had to be either mothers or professionals. “Now you can be both,” she says. It’s acceptable to show some emotion, it’s acceptable to alter your job style. I think that’s happening across the board, though, for men and for women.”
She worked to the end of her first pregnancy to prove that it could be done. Had she felt sick, she says, she would have stayed home if necessary and found some other way of explaning her absence to the office. “Now, I would just say, look, I feel rotten and I’m staying home, even if it was obvious it was pregnancy related. I don’t feel it’s really a question of having to prove yoursele anymore . . . I’ve proved myself. Obviously, I can stay up all night [with a sick child] and still come into work. I don’t think I carry that burden anymore.”
She feels pregnancy and motherhood are accepted “in stride” by her coworkers. “I don’t get probing questions or the advice I got the first time. I just couldn’t walk down the hall without people saying it’s a boy or it’s a girl. I haven’t gotten nearly the unsolicited comments.
“I was very conscious that all the men whe worked for me would go home and ask their wives what it’s like, so they would know how to deal with me. I assumed that. I don’t know that any of them did. I tried to keep my pregnancy secret as long as possible and have them find out I’ve been pregnant for four months and hadn’t behaved any differently.”
Mendenhall’s baby [Conceived by Nicholas Soames?] was due in early August . “I now work from about 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Everybody at work has so afraid of being offensive, that they ignore it.””
“Landmine ban effort
31 August 2017
The founder of an anti-landmine campaign group says Princess Diana’s support provided a “turning point” in the global effort to ban the devices.
Lou McGrath launched Mines Advisory Group (MAG) with his brother Rae in 1989, from Cockermouth, in Cumbria.
The princess made global headlines in January 1997 when she called for a ban on anti-personnel devices.
She then worked with MAG in the months before her death, on August 31 of that year in a Paris car crash.
Keen to support a global ban, the princess’s representatives had contacted MAG, which led to a meeting at Kensington Palace.
Subsequently, she was in regular contact with the group and acted as a keynote speaker at a London event in June 1997.
Just over three months after her death, 122 governments signed up to the Ottawa Treaty, which aimed to eliminate the production and use of mines.”
“Chemical weapons experts rebut claims that Russia was behind Skripal attack
Published time: 28 Mar, 2018 15:27
A former head of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons has dismissed claims that Russia was behind the Salisbury chemical attack. The expert added that Iran was most recently known to have Novichok – not Russia.
While the US, Europe and other nations have taken part in a mass expulsion of Russian diplomats following the UK’s claims that the Kremlin is ‘culpable’ for the poisoning of Sergei and Yulia Skripal, Dr Ralf Trapp has reservations. The former secretary of the Scientific Advisory Board of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons has said that, at this stage, there is no conclusive evidence of Russian responsibility.
In an exclusive interview with INSURGE, the ex-senior official said that while there is compelling evidence that Russia did run a secret research program to make Novichok-style chemical agents, there has been no proof that such programs still exist today.
“I have no information about whether Russia continued the program after the mid-1990s,” he said, “but would not exclude the possibility that small amounts of what could be ‘explained away’ as materials needed in protective research have been retained or newly synthesized. But again – no actual data on this.”
When asked if Russia was the one behind the attack on the Skripals, Trapp said: “… there are other theoretical possibilities,”adding that “it would depend on what else the UK knows and has not yet made public. “He also explained that he “can’t immediately see motive or opportunity” for other parties to be involved “except for the UK, as suggested by Russia.”” However, he added that he did not “consider [that theory] credible at all.”
The lack of proof from the British government has also been raised by former UK ambassador to Uzbekistan Craig Murray. Court documents handed down last week in a ruling over the Skripal’s medical care also noted that the chemical used was a “military-grade nerve agent of a type developed by Russia”– but did not conclusively confirm the origin of the weapon.
After the British government placed the blame for the Salisbury attack on Russia, Moscow demanded a sample of the agent used for their own experts to analyze. This would have allowed Russia to publish their own findings, but the UK declined to provide a sample.
Leonard Rink, one of the Russian scientists who confirmed the existence of the ‘Foliant’ program that originally developed the Novichok chemicals, believes that the UK’s refusal to provide the chemical sample suggests that it is not necessarily of Russian origin.
“For any country with weapons of mass destruction – the UK, the US, China and all developed countries – any country with at least some chemistry would have zero problems creating this kind of weapon,” he said. “Why aren’t the British providing a sample to Moscow? Because no matter how hard [British] specialists try, a technology will always differ somewhat. This is its unique signature. It will be immediately clear that it is not a Russian-made technology.””
“CHEMICAL ALERT Chilling footage inside Russian chemical weapons factory ‘that made Novichok’
Experts believe the substance used to poison Sergei Skripal could have come from this facility

THE nerve agent used to poison Russian double agent could likely have been produced in this ominous Russian factory.
Newly surfaced footage from 1994 shows scientists in hazmat suits working in a former chemical weapons factory on the banks of the Volga river, just hundreds of miles from Moscow.
Filmed around the time Russia claimed to have destroyed its chemical weapons stockpile, it also shows hundreds of 200l barrels which could contain deadly substances.
Novichok, the nerve agent believed to have been used on Skripal and his daughter Yulia, was created at a complex just like this, according to former chemical weapons scientist Vil Mirzayanov.
“There was a factory for the production of experimental quantities of chemical agents,” he told Newsnight.
He added: “For the first time was invented this Novichok series of nerve gases which are at least ten times more powerful than known nerve gases including VX.”
British investigators believe Novichok was used to poison Russian double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia, both pictured
Experts claim the nerve agent which poisoned Skripal, 66, most likely came from somewhere in this facility.
Putin has repeatedly claimed Russia destroyed all never agents but experts including Jerry Smith, a former chemical weapons inspector, say this has never been proved.
Skripal, who was swapped in a spy exchange in 2010, and his daughter Yulia Skripal, 33, were found unconscious on a public bench in Salisbury on March 4.
Former Russian military intelligence officer Skripal remains in a critical condition but his daughter has regained consciousness and is talking.
Police hope she could help catch whoever poisoned them using Novichok, the name for a series of nerve agents developed by the Soviet Union in the 1970s and 80s.
They are said to be the deadliest nerve agents ever created and reported to be five times more potent than the notorious VX gas.
It is made of two relatively harmless materials which become fatal when mixed together, making it easier to transport under the radar.
“It is designed to be undetectable for any standard chemical security testing,” Colonel Hamish de Bretton-Gordon told the Express.
Novichok agents, dispersed as an ultra-fine powder rather than vapour, belong to the class of inhibitors called “organophosphate acetylcholinesterase”.
They prevent the normal breakdown of a neurotransmitter acetylcholine which, when it builds up, causes muscles to contract involuntarily.
Because the victim’s heart and diaphragm aren’t functioning properly, this leads to respiratory and cardiac arrest.
Those affected usually die from total heart failure or suffocation as copious fluid secretions fill their lungs.
British Prime Minister Theresa May says Russia is culpable for the attack and has urged allies to join in condemning Moscow for the first known offensive use of a chemical weapon on European soil since World War Two.
Russia says Britain has failed to produce any persuasive evidence of Russia’s guilt.
Britain has blamed Russia for the poisoning, and has been backed up by dozens of Western countries which have ordered Russian diplomats to leave.
The United States charges that the 60 Russians that it targeted are intelligence officers operating under diplomatic cover.”
“Subject: “Con-Air” in 1/6 San Diego Union Tribune [news article] You won’t need a reservation on this airline — no matter how many travelers flood the airport. .. Call it ConAir and Little knows what you mean. It’s the name the air transport system has picked up inside the U.S. Marshals Service, which flies a fleet of 13 airplanes on regular routes across the country every day. During the past year, the prisoner airline spent $24 million moving more than 100,000 federal inmates — including 12,000 from San Diego — to and from trials, prisons and medical centers nationwide. … Among the most infamous of its recent travelers were Unabomber suspect Theodore Kaczynski and the men accused in the bombing of the Oklahoma City federal building, Terry Nichols and Timothy McVeigh. Nichols and McVeigh were transported in the dead of night in an operation much akin to a clandestine military operation, Little said. He did not want to go into details but mentioned that a decoy plane was among the ploys used to guard against possible attempts by supporters to free the suspects.
Federal officials have always been circumspect about the fine points of prisoner movement. But ConAir soon could gain a higher public profile with the planned release in June of a movie by the same name. In the Disney film, Nicolas Cage plays a hapless prisoner who wanders into a hijack plot aboard a Marshals Service plane carrying a group of high-security inmates.
The Hollywood marshals rough up some of the prisoners, and the plane crashes, leaving the real Marshals Service frowning on the silver screen’s invention, said Kristine Marcy, a top official in charge of detentions. … Prisoners — mostly people being held for entering the country with false documents — are flown from San Diego to Las Vegas, where they are housed in the city jail. They are flown back a few days later for deportation hearings. .. Because of the San Diego jail space problem, there was no holiday break here for ConAir. While flights in other parts of the country were cut back during the Christmas season, San Diego continued its rigorous schedule of two flights every weekday and one each Saturday and Sunday.
Marcy said the air transportation system inspires a high level of commitment in its personnel. “People are always willing to be on standby or to work overtime,” she said, noting that the planes are not always used for prisoner transport. After a hurricane flattened parts of the Virgin Islands last year, the prisoner transportation system flew in some of the first reinforcements to help establish law and order, she said.
After the Oklahoma City bombing, the airline flew evidence to the FBI crime laboratory in Washington, D.C., she said.
With planes crisscrossing the country, traveling through multiple time zones and even venturing around the globe, scheduling and tracking have gone high-tech. It’s all accomplished from a scheduling center in Kansas City, Mo., referred to as the “travel agency” for ConAir. It handles up to 500 electronic requests for flights each day, federal officials say.
Flight tracking begins an hour before the first plane takes off. Throughout the day, employees monitor the movements of every plane until the last craft is safely on the ground.
On board, a crew of deputy U.S. marshals, aviation enforcement officers and contract guards keeps order in the rear of the plane. Passengers are loaded under high security at a remote area of an airport. Seat assignments are not optional.
The planes fly out of a hub in Oklahoma City, the center of the country, making large loops east and west, dropping off and picking up passengers as they land at 40 major cities.
The planes also loop along separate West Coast and East Coast circuits.
.. He said jail cells, which generally are rented by the Marshals Service to hold federal prisoners until they are sentenced to a long-term facility, can cost up to $100 a night on the East Coast, while in Texas or Louisiana the cost of a cell might run as low as $35 a night.
“You make up the cost of moving a prisoner pretty quickly at that rate,” Little said.
He said other reasons for moving prisoners include the need to separate gang members or suspects testifying against each other.
ConAir also moves inmates for the federal Bureau of Prisons, which may want to transfer someone from a high-to low-security facility.
Higher-security prison space is most expensive, Little explained, so prison authorities like to quickly move people who do not need the extra supervision.”
“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 [ConAir] 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).”

“Winston Churchill’s shocking use of chemical weapons The use of chemical weapons in Syria has outraged the world. But it is easy to forget that Britain has used them – and that Winston Churchill was a powerful advocate for them Secrecy was paramount. Britain’s imperial general staff knew there would be outrage if it became known that the government was intending to use its secret stockpile of chemical weapons. But Winston Churchill, then secretary of state for war, brushed aside their concerns. As a long-term advocate of chemical warfare, he was determined to use them against the Russian Bolsheviks. In the summer of 1919, 94 years before the devastating strike in Syria, Churchill planned and executed a sustained chemical attack on northern Russia. The British were no strangers to the use of chemical weapons. During the third battle of Gaza in 1917, General Edmund Allenby had fired 10,000 cans of asphyxiating gas at enemy positions, to limited effect. But in the final months of the first world war, scientists at the governmental laboratories at Porton in Wiltshire developed a far more devastating weapon: the top secret “M Device”, an exploding shell containing a highly toxic gas called diphenylaminechloroarsine. The man in charge of developing it, Major General Charles Foulkes, called it “the most effective chemical weapon ever devised”.”

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.”
