Open letter from the Cloud Centric Crime Scene Investigators of Abel Danger
June 12, 2018
Dear General Kelly:
Please accept Brief 295 from Field McConnell – United States Marine Corps whistle-blower and Global Operations Director of Abel Danger (AD) – wherein he and his research team at Abel Danger have launched NICE AI, a virtual network to help injured communities empower themselves with the artificial intelligence methods described in David C. Hawkins’s Deductive computing machine EP19890311659 to truth-test Serco‘s fake news networks and develop crash- or crime-scene docudramas needed to expose the wrongful deaths allegedly caused by switching of SwRI’s Interactive training system for AWACS weapons directors US6053736A from simulation to spot-fixed live-fire modes in the proxy wars apparently staged by the custodians of Jerome H. Lemelson’s [Con Air] Prisoner tracking and warning system and corresponding methods 2000-04-25 US6054928A between the Oneworld and Star airline alliances and concealed by Boeing’s Encryption for asymmetric data links US 7023996B2 Priority 2001-05-04.
AD believes that spot-fixed switching by AWACS weapons directors began after Serco shareholders and their investment bankers N M Rothschild & Sons Ltd. apparently modified Trump Shuttle Inc.’s Boeing 727 aircraft to covertly fly under the Con Air (JPATS) prisoner booking service (JABS) and assembled various combinations of fraudulently-patented ‘Boeing’, ‘Con Air’, ‘Dum Dum’ and ‘Lutnick’ devices for use in the ‘Four Horsemen’ proxy war between Oneworld and Star flag carriers which caused the deaths of everyone on board American Airlines AA Flight 11 on 9/11 and on board the subsequent 17 aircraft up to the Airbus A320 of EgyptAir Flight 804 which crashed into the eastern Mediterranean Sea on May 19 2016 under suspicious circumstance suggestive of fake news, media plays and spoliation of evidence …
1. 1st Lutnick Spot Fixed Crash – 92 people died on AA Flight 11 (American Airlines was a founder member of Oneworld in 1988) which was allegedly hijacked by five al-Qaeda members on September 11, 2001 and flown into the North Tower but which AD believes was skyjacked by Con Air SWAT teams per Jerome H. Lemelson’s Prisoner tracking and warning system and corresponding methods US6054928A and flown through Boeing devices embedded in SwRI’s Interactive training system for AWACS weapons directors to be vaporized in W386A airspace with incendiaries initiated by Qinetiq Explosive Device US20060243151A1 in Arconic’s Double sheet aluminum panel US 20160096343 A1. ….. 2nd to 17th Lutnick spot-fixed crashes (see refs) ….
2. 18th Lutnick Spot Fixed Crash – 66 people died on the Airbus A320 of EgyptAir Flight 804 (EgyptAir joined the Star Alliance on July 11, 2008) crashed on May 19 2016 into the eastern Mediterranean Sea after Con Air SWAT teams and AWACS weapons directors allegedly flew the plane into the Egyptian flight information region at Flight Level 370 before executing a 90-degree descending left turn, followed by a 360-degree descending right turn to lose radar contact at 10,000 feet when a witness claims to have seen a “fire in the sky” 240 km (150 mi; 130 nmi) south of the island of Karpathos.
AD believes that Serco – formerly RCA GB 1929 – and its Con Air SWAT teams were given opportunities to spot fix crashes in proxy wars through the Boeing E-3 Sentry, commonly known as AWACS, aircraft no later than 1979 by the late biological, chemical and explosive expert Victor Rothschild, the late and former SACEUR General Alexander Haig and various charter members of the U.S. Senior Executive Service (SES) including Oliver ‘Buck’ Revell, former Marine Corps helicopter pilot flying Boeing Vertol CH-46 Sea Knight in the Vietnam war and a former (SES-6) FBI Director deputy in charge of Criminal Investigative, Counter-Terrorism and Counter-Intelligence activities and Field McConnell’s sister Kristine Marcy, former Senior Counsel for the U.S. Marshals Service.
AD believes that N M Rothschild hosted a meeting of Serco shareholders on the 47th found Floor of the WTC North Tower to witness a Four Horsemen attack on 9/11; allegedly scripted by the late General Alexander Haig and allegedly using Howard Lutnick’s Real-time interactive wagering on event outcomes CA 2460367 A to spot fix body counts and time of victim or witness deaths with special weapons such as Darrel [Dum Dum] Rubin’s Biological active bullets, systems, and methods US9200877B1 or Lockheed Martin Rocket-Boosted Guided Hard Target Penetrator US 6276277 B1or [Clinton’s or] BEI-Systron Donner’s Rotation rate sensor with optical sensing device .S. Patent 5796002.
AD believes that Serco and Rothschild insiders have already determined the outcome of the meeting between US President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Kim Yong un where both leaders – at different times in their careers – have allegedly been caught in Con Air traps set by Buck Revell and Kristine Marcy and understand the consequences of disobedience at Oneworld Star Wars events and the spot fixed crashes of AA11, AF 447, MH 17 and EgyptAir Flight 804.
With this the 295th Kelly public briefing, we declare our support for the networked communities injured in the ‘4 Horsemen’ attacks on aircraft allegedly launched by Serco and NM Rothschild as de facto custodians of the Five Eyes patent pool since 9/11 and our planned use of AI tools in docudramas and class-action law suits to purge false / fake news from spot-fixed crime scene investigations and deduce the truth of physical acts causing deaths (actus reus) associated with blackmailed (?) AWACS weapons directors without attempts to prove intent to murder (mens rea).

“A proxy war, occasionally also called a proxy fight, is an armed conflict between two states or non-state actors which act on the instigation or on behalf of other parties that are not directly involved in the hostilities. In order for a conflict to be considered a proxy war, there must be a direct, long-term relationship between external actors and the belligerents involved. The aforementioned relationship usually takes the form of funding, military training, arms, or other forms of material assistance which assist a belligerent party in sustaining its war effort.”

“Just What Were Donald Trump’s Ties to the Mob?
I’ve spent years investigating, and here’s what’s known.
By DAVID CAY JOHNSTON
May 22, 2016 …
In 1986, three years after Trump Tower opened, Roy Cohn was disbarred for attempting to steal from a client, lying and other conduct that an appellate court found “particularly reprehensible.”
Trump testified that Cohn, who was dying from AIDS, was a man of good character who should keep his license to practice law.
This was not the only time Trump went to bat publicly for a criminal. He has also spoken up for Shapiro and Sullivan. And then there was the case of Joseph Weichselbaum, an embezzler who ran Trump’s personal helicopter service and ferried his most valued clientele.
Trump and Weichselbaum were so close, Barrett reported in his book, that Weichselbaum told his parole officer about how he knew Trump was hiding his mistress, Marla Maples, from his first wife, Ivana, and tried to persuade Trump to end their years-long affair.
Trump’s casinos retained Weichselbaum’s firm to fly high rollers to Atlantic City. Weichselbaum was indicted in Ohio on charges of trafficking in marijuana and cocaine. The head of one of Trump’s casinos was notified of the indictment in October 1985, but Trump continued using Weichselbaum—conduct that again could have cost Trump his casino license had state regulators pressed the matter, because casino owners were required to distance themselves from any hint of crime. Just two months later Trump rented an apartment he owned in the Trump Plaza apartment building in Manhattan to the pilot and his brother for $7,000 a month in cash and flight services. Trump also continued paying Weichselbaum’s firm even after it went bankrupt.
Weichselbaum, who in 1979 had been caught embezzling and had to repay the stolen money, pleaded guilty to two felonies.
Donald Trump vouched for Weichselbaum before his sentencing, writing that the drug trafficker is “a credit to the community” who was “conscientious, forthright, and diligent.” And while Weichselbaum’s confederates got as many as 20 years, Weichselbaum himself got only three, serving 18 months before he was released from the urban prison that the Bureau of Prisons maintains in New York City. In seeking early release, Weichselbaum said Trump had a job waiting for him.
Weichselbaum then moved into Trump Tower, his girlfriend having recently bought two adjoining apartments there for $2.4 million. The cash purchase left no public record of whether any money actually changed hands or, if it did, where it came from. I asked Trump at the time for documents relating to the sale; he did not respond.
As a casino owner, Trump could have lost his license for associating with Weichselbaum. Trump has never been known to use drugs or even drink. What motivated him to risk his valuable license by standing up for a drug trafficker remains unclear to this day.
Trump, in his phone call to me, said he “hardly knew” Weichselbaum.”
“Jerome H. Lemelson’s Prisoner tracking and warning system and corresponding methods 2000-04-25 US6054928A Grant Abstract A system and method for tracking, monitoring and learning prisoner or parolee behavior involves obtaining prisoner or parolee data and monitoring data for at least one individual prisoner or parolee, storing the prisoner or parolee data and monitored data into a database, learning prisoner or parolee behavior from the prisoner or parolee data and the monitored data in the database, and updating the prisoner or parolee data and the monitored data in the database. Expert system (i.e. including but not limited to fuzzy logic, reinforcement learning, neural networks, artificial intelligence, etc.) algorithms are executed for determining and analyzing deviated behavior by the prisoner or parolee. A parole level is assigned to the prisoner or parolee and it is determined whether the prisoner or parolee is to be moved up or down a parole level depending on whether the prisoner or parolee behavior does not constitute or does constitute prisoner or parolee violations. Furthermore, the system tracks, monitors, and learns the behavior of the prisoner or parolee by controlling and regulating the permitted/prohibited locations or sectors, the permitted/prohibited location or sector dwell times, the permitted/prohibited travel routes, the permitted/prohibited travel times that the prisoner or parolee spends at or between various locations.

“American Airlines Flight 11 was a domestic passenger flight that was hijacked by five al-Qaeda members on September 11, 2001, as part of the September 11 attacks. Mohamed Atta deliberately crashed the plane into the North Tower of the World Trade Center in New York City, killing all 92 people aboard and an unknown number in the building’s impact zone. The aircraft involved, a Boeing 767-223ER, registration N334AA, was flying American Airlines’ daily scheduled morning transcontinental service from Logan International Airport, in Boston, Massachusetts, to Los Angeles International Airport, in Los Angeles, California.”
“The Boeing E-3 Sentry, commonly known as AWACS, is an American airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) aircraft developed by Boeing. Derived from the Boeing 707, it provides all-weather surveillance, command, control, and communications, and is used by the United States Air Force, NATO, Royal Air Force, French Air Force, and Royal Saudi Air Force. The E-3 is distinguished by the distinctive rotating radar dome above the fuselage. Production ended in 1992 after 68 aircraft had been built.
In the mid-1960s, the US Air Force (USAF) was seeking an aircraft to replace its piston-engined Lockheed EC-121 Warning Star, which had been in service for over a decade. After issuing preliminary development contracts to three companies, the USAF picked Boeing to construct two airframes to test Westinghouse Electric and Hughes’s competing radars. Both radars used pulse-Doppler technology, with Westinghouse’s design emerging as the contract winner. Testing on the first production E-3 began in October 1975.
The first USAF E-3 was delivered in March 1977, and during the next seven years, a total of 34 aircraft were manufactured. NATO, as a single identity, also had 18 aircraft manufactured, basing them in Germany. The E-3 was also sold to the United Kingdom (seven) and France (four) and Saudi Arabia (five, plus eight E-3-derived tanker aircraft). In 1991, when the last aircraft had been delivered, E-3s participated in Operation Desert Storm, playing a crucial role of directing coalition aircraft against the enemy. Throughout the aircraft’s service life, numerous upgrades were performed to enhance its capabilities. In 1996, Westinghouse Electric’s Defense & Electronic Systems division, was acquired by Northrop Corporation before its being renamed Northrop Grumman Mission Systems, which currently supports the E-3’s radar.”

“Significant Changes in U.S. Patent Laws Intellectual Property Update 2000 By John T. McNelis ( email@example.com) .. On November 29, 1999 President Clinton signed the Intellectual Property and Communications Omnibus Reform Act of 1999 (the “Act”). The Act significantly modified the patent laws of the United States by (1) mandating publication of certain applications, (2) expanding the number of situations in which a patent term is extended, (3) adding a first inventor defense to patent infringement claims for methods of doing and conducting business, and (4) allowing for increased third party participation in reexamination proceedings. Some of these modifications become effective for applications filed on or after November 29, 2000 while some of these modifications are already effective. This article summarizes these modifications and identifies some factors that should be accounted for when forming a strategic patent plan. I. 18 Month Publication of Some Patent Applications A common complaint of the patent system in the United States is that, because pending applications are not available to the public, a company that introduces a product or develops a technology may discover several years later that another company’s patent was pending at the time of such a product introduction which may result in an expensive redesign or payment of a licensing fee to the patentee.”
“THURSDAY, 12 AUGUST 2010 ‘Let’s Get Rid of This Goddamn Sim’: How NORAD Radar Screens Displayed False Tracks All Through the 9/11 Attacks
Military personnel responsible for defending U.S. airspace had false tracks displayed on their radar screens throughout the entire duration of the 9/11 attacks, as part of the simulation for a training exercise being conducted that day. Technicians at NORAD’s Northeast Air Defense Sector (NEADS) were still receiving the simulated radar information around the time the third attack, on the Pentagon, took place. Those at NORAD’s operations center in Cheyenne Mountain, Colorado, were still receiving it several minutes after United Airlines Flight 93 apparently crashed in rural Pennsylvania.
No one has investigated why false tracks continued being injected onto NORAD radar screens long after the U.S. military was alerted to the real-world crisis taking place that morning. And yet we surely need to know more about these simulated “inputs” and what effect they had on the military’s ability to respond to the 9/11 attacks.”
“Civil (Wrongful Death Lawsuits) vs. Criminal (Murder Trials)
Some people get confused about the difference between wrongful death lawsuits and murder. Generally, there are two very broad categories of lawsuits in this country, which are civil and criminal. Civil cases involve lawsuits that individual citizens bring against each other (or against corporations or insurance companies representing either individuals or businesses). People can hire their own private attorneys to bring civil lawsuits. And, in most cases other than contempt, civil lawsuits do not lead to incarceration (at least not directly, meaning unless somehow the evidence presented in a civil case reveals that a criminal prosecution by the government is warranted), but rather result in payment of damages. Criminal lawsuits are instituted by government prosecutors on behalf of the state and victims. Wrongful death is a civil lawsuit (instituted by survivors or estates against individuals or corporations responsible for the death and which cannot directly lead to incarceration, meaning the judgment will not involve incarceration), while murder is a criminal lawsuit (instituted by criminal prosecutors and which can lead to incarceration).
Wrongful Death Lawsuits Are Brought By Different People And Involve Different Burdens of Proof At Trial
Wrongful death lawsuits are civil actions, usually filed by the estate or relatives of the deceased with the help of a wrongful death lawyer, on the basis that defendant is responsible for the deceased’s death through a careless, deliberate, or negligent act. Wrongful death lawsuitsmay be based on an act that also constitutes murder as that term is defined by the criminal statutes. But the only available remedy in a wrongful death lawsuit is the plaintiff’s financial recovery rather than punishing the defendant with incarceration or other criminal penalties.
Vastly Different Burdens Of Proof
Because they involve civil rather than criminal litigation, wrongful death lawsuits have a different burden of proof than criminal cases. In a wrongful death lawsuit, the plaintiff’s attorney generally must prove that the defendant is responsible for the death by a “preponderance of the evidence,” which means that there is at least a 51% probability (“more likely than not”) that the defendant committed the allegations in the civil complaint (the document that starts the wrongful death lawsuit).
Criminal cases has vastly different burdens of proof, which require the prosecutor to establish “beyond a reasonable doubt” that the defendant committed the crime. And the case itself is not filed by the individual’s estate, but by the government. If convicted of murder, the individual will likely be incarcerated or even killed if the case warrants and the jury and judge agree that capital punishment is appropriate.
Also Different Levels Of Intent
Wrongful death lawsuits and murder are also different in the type of conduct that is punished. In wrongful death lawsuits, the defendant may have just been negligent (e.g., improper vehicular passing), although intentional conduct that could also be punished in a murder trialcan form the basis of a wrongful death lawsuit. But murder always involves some degree of criminal intent, which very generally speaking is beyond civil negligence (this is very general information, so I encourage you to speak with a prosecutor or criminal defense attorney if you have further questions about murder or other forms of criminal punishment). So a simple way of looking at the situation is that actions that amount to criminal murder can also form the basis of liability in a wrongful death lawsuit. But the reverse is not always true (meaning many actions that could lead to liability for wrongful death could NOT also lead to criminal punishment for murder).
Case In Point: OJ Simpson
OJ Simpson was first charged with first degree murder in California, where he was found not guilty by a jury. The criminal case was not filed by the family of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, but by the state. However, after the “not guilty” verdict, Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson’s families filed a civil lawsuit seeking damages for wrongful death. The civil lawsuit had a much lower burden of proof than the criminal trial and led to a multimillion (45+ million) dollar verdict in favor of the families and estates. So the wrongful death lawsuit was successful even though the murder trial was not.”

The system integrates genuine controller instruments to create a “live” operational environment that includes communications systems, radar displays and airfield lighting.
The simulator, which can be configured to mimic any airport in the world, enables Dubai to learn from and integrate best practices developed at other leading airports. By simulating new procedures and technologies in a highly realistic environment, air traffic controllers avoid any disruptions and fully adjust to changes before they are adopted.
This is just one more way Serco helps our clients to world-class safety and efficiency.”
“Upon the abolition of the board in 1802, President Jefferson appointed Thornton the first Superintendent of the Patent Office. When Washington was burned by the British in 1814, Thornton convinced them not to burn the Patent Office because of its importance to mankind. He held the position from June 1, 1802 until his death in 1828 in Washington, DC. During his tenure, he introduced innovations including the patent reissue practice, which survives to this day.
Some of Thornton’s reputation as an inventor is due to abuse of his position in the Patent Office. His improvements to John Fitch’s 1788 steamboat are patented but didn’t work.  When John Hall applied for a patent on a new breech-loading rifle in 1811, Thornton claimed he had also invented it. As proof, he showed Hall a Ferguson rifle, a British gun dating from 1776, refusing to issue the patent unless it was in his name as well as Hall’s name. ”
“INSIDE GAMING: $5.5 million fine keeps CG alive
By HOWARD STUTZ LAS VEGAS REVIEW-JOURNAL
January 22, 2014 – 11:36 am
There is a reason officials from CG Technology (formerly Cantor Gaming) said they were “glad to have reached a resolution” with Nevada gaming regulators and will pay the largest fine ever leveled against a casino or affiliated company.
The Las Vegas-based bookmaker — a subsidiary of Wall Street financial giant Cantor Fitzgerald LP — faced a potential death sentence by the state Gaming Control Board.
That prospect gave CG/Cantor’s leadership a “Sophie’s Choice” quandary.
Instead of watching a decadelong, billion-dollar investment go down the drain, CG Technology CEO Lee Amaitis and Cantor Fitzgerald Chairman Howard Lutnick accepted the stipulated agreement to the 18-count complaint, which included the $5.5 million fine.
The deal amounted to a plea of “nolo contendere” on the four most egregious charges. Gaming regulators said CG/Cantor leadership should have known the company’s top race and sports book official was also an agent for an illegal betting operation and had accepted almost $35 million in illegal wagers.
CG/Cantor admitted guilt to the other 14 counts.
The settlement requires approval from the Nevada Gaming Commission at a public hearing Thursday. The five commissioners may also exact their own pound of flesh from the company.
By the time a deal was hashed out more than a week ago, CG was humbled.
The company, coincidentally, changed its name from Cantor Gaming on the same day the control board handed down the complaint. It took a week for the settlement to be finalized as lawyers argued over language.
CG/Cantor Gaming reportedly still faces a federal investigation over potential illegal wagering activities, so the settlement with Nevada needed to be crafted in a way to avoid the all-out admittance of guilt.”
“DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE – OFFICE OF THE INSPECTOR GENERAL INSPECTIONS REPORT – THE JUSTICE PRISONER AND ALIEN TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM
March 1997 Report Number I-97-05
Rather than relying solely on commercial flights to move prisoners over long distances, the USMS established its own air transport capability in 1985 with the purchase of a Boeing 727 (B-727) aircraft, capable of moving about 100 prisoners at a time. The hub of the newly created Air Operations Division was located at the airport in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.”
“”Con-Air” in 1/6 San Diego Union Tribune [news article]

Subject: “Con-Air” in 1/6 San Diego Union Tribune [news article]
A correspondent passed this 1/6 article on to us. He adds:
“The article in the hard-copy paper has a couple of pictures to go with the story (no pix on-line). One picture shows the shoulder patch on the aircrew uniforms, another shows prisoners lined up about to board a Convair 580. The paint job on the plane looked like INS or maybe US Marshals Service, it was a green stripe with an eagle forward of the door.”
The article is relevant here because of recent discussion of Con-Air flights using the “Janet” company name.
You won’t need a reservation on this airline — no matter how many travelers flood the airport.
Don’t worry about traffic or parking. Shuttles are provided. And the price is right — you fly for free.
But think carefully before you step aboard. This is ConAir, and all the passengers are federal prisoners.
“We don’t serve mixed drinks,” said Thomas Little, chief of air operations for the program, officially titled the Justice Prisoner and Alien Transportation System, or J-Pats.
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.
The inmates fly mostly on 727s and DC-9s. But the airline, which has merged with the air wing of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, also operates Convair 580s, a Lear jet and a number of smaller aircraft.
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.
“We don’t beat up our prisoners, and our planes certainly don’t crash,” Marcy said on a recent trip to San Diego, where she was trying to find more jail space for federal prisoners.
The space problem here is acute because of the high number of border arrests. So, San Diego is a regular stop on ConAir’s West Coast air route, with 12 flights per week scheduled into Lindbergh Field.
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.
Without the air transportation system, Operation Gatekeeper, the federal border crackdown, would not have been possible, said Mark Reed, San Diego’s district director for the INS.
Before ConAir was called in last July, Reed said, the INS was spending hours on the road busing hundreds of prisoners to Las Vegas, the closest jail space available.
Kim Porter, who coordinates INS air transportation in San Diego, estimated that 12,000 inmates have flown from here to Las Vegas and back aboard federal planes.
“If the planes stopped flying for just one day, a monkey wrench would be thrown into the whole system,” Porter said.
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.”
