#1517: Marine Links Quantico Governor General to B.C. Pig-Farm JABS in Nortel $6 billion Pump-and-Dump
Plum City – (AbelDanger.net). United States Marine Field McConnell has linked agents deployed through the FBI Quantico laboratory and the Canadian Governors General office, to the Nortel Joint Automated Booking System (JABS) allegedly used by B.C. pig-farm snuff-film crews to obtain DNA from guests and extort their participation in a Nortel pump-and-dump scheme which netted almost $6 billion for private-equity insiders of the provincial public-sector pension fund bcIMC [sic].
Just as he was warming up to theories regarding Pickton's associations with drug dealing bikers, lawyer Jason Gratl was shut down by Commissioner Wally Oppal, who was clearly perturbed. Gratl was cross-examining RCMP Cpl. Mike Connor, the force's lead investigator on Pickton.
Connor admitted that he received a tip that a Hells Angel associate who worked in a "booze can" after-hours drinking club across the street from Pickton's Port Coquitlam, B.C., property "was chopped up in a meat grinder on the farm and fed to the pigs."
Connor said police knew Hells Angels went to Pickton's farm and attended "Piggy's Palace" — the nearby illicit nightclub [registered as a federal charity by Office of the Secretary to the Governor General (OSGG)] run by Pickton and his brother Dave. However, Connor said he did not investigate the credibility of the allegation a male Hells Angel associate was disposed of on Pickton's farm.
During Pickton's trial, lab staff testified that about 80 unidentified DNA profiles -roughly half male and half female — have shown up on evidence.
These are all very significant findings. The fact that the police knew the Hells Angels ran an illegal booze can across the street from the Pickton farm and knew that Dave Pickton was a Hells Angels associate, are facts that need to be explored. They most certainly aren't to be shut down by a brain dead idiot who has done nothing for BC other than rationalize BC's judicial incompetence.
Is it true Jesse Hadden was involved with the booze can across the street from the Pickton farm? Wouldn't that make his involvement with Nino at La JJ's suspect? Is it true that Jesse's father Spike was the one that caused the rift between the Haney Hells Angels and the Mission City Hells Angels? Please advise.
“New York Times .. In a Lab, an Ever-Growing Database of DNA Profiles
QUANTICO, Va. — The Federal Bureau of Investigation established its first crime laboratory in 1932 in a converted lounge in Washington. The one-man operation included a sink, a microscope and its most exotic piece of equipment: a helixometer, a lighted magnifier probe to inspect gun-barrel scoring.

The F.B.I.'s crime lab in Quantico, Va.
The F.B.I.’s current crime lab is a gleaming tower overlooking a wooded Marine base 50 miles west of Washington. Here, about 600 people process hundreds of thousands of pieces of evidence a year in specialized units for explosives, fingerprints, ballistics, toxicology and other forensic disciplines.
And a small windowless room is home to the agency’s most powerful forensic technology: a rack of blinking Dell computer consoles.
“Whenever people see this, they’re always underwhelmed,” said a technician as she ate cantaloupe in the closet-size space.
The computers contain the National DNA Index System, a database of 6.7 million genetic profiles, the world’s largest repository of forensic DNA information. Under a 2005 federal law, the database will continue to include convicted felons, but it will also add genetic profiles of people who have been arrested but not convicted and of immigrant detainees — for an estimated 1.3 million more profiles by 2012.
Since it was established in 1994, the DNA database has helped identify thousands of suspects, and DNA evidence has exonerated more than 200 wrongfully convicted people. Law enforcement officials say they hope a larger database will help them solve more crimes, new and old, like the case of John F. Thomas Jr. He was recently linked by DNA to two homicides in Los Angeles that have gone unsolved for decades, and the police think he may be tied to several other killings.
But keeping pace with the expansion of DNA databases is a major challenge for the agency, which has sought ways to speed the processing of DNA evidence. As of 2007, the Justice Department estimated the backlog at 600,000 to 700,000 samples.
In 2002, the F.B.I. was processing about 5,000 DNA samples each year. With the help of new robotic systems, analysts with the crime lab plan to process 90,000 samples each month by 2010.
Only about 10 percent of criminal cases use DNA analysis, but it is far more accurate than other techniques: scientists estimate the possibility of a random match at one in a quadrillion.
Before the F.B.I. automated much of its DNA processing, genetic analyses were costly and time-consuming, and they still are for most crime labs.
Forensic DNA analysis usually begins outside the laboratory, with suspects, detainees and convicted criminals having their mouths swabbed. Sometimes DNA analysis is part of an active criminal investigation, with detectives collecting bone and tissue fragments, semen or blood from a crime scene. The F.B.I. also accepts the DNA of missing persons, from artifacts like hair and toothbrushes.
In the United States, forensic DNA profiles focus on 13 genetic coding sequences found at specific locations, or loci, on human chromosomes. Many of these sequences correspond to genetic traits like hair and eye color, or to medical conditions. But the F.B.I. chose 13 loci — with names like CSF1PO, FGA and TPOX — for their rarity.
By collecting such “junk DNA,” which have no known genetic characteristics, police agencies can argue that they are not violating privacy rights. “There is nothing that would reveal any medical or physical characteristics at all,” said Jennifer C. Luttman, who runs the offender-DNA collection program.
A recent audit of the program, however, found that advances in genotyping could link identifiable traits with F.B.I. profiles and infringe on privacy rights.
Down the hall from the National DNA Index System’s computers, a machine processes a plate with 96 tiny wells, each containing a DNA sample. Many laboratories still do this work by hand, one sample at a time. The F.B.I.’s new automated system can process as many as 2,000 samples a day per machine.
Each sample is cleaned, dried and replicated in a process called P.C.R., for polymerase chain reaction. Growing millions of copies of DNA makes them easier to “read.”
In another process, capillary electrophoresis, the DNA is bathed in a solution and electrically charged to make it fluorescent and visible to a laser microscope. The samples are pulled taut through a hair-size tube as the laser scope scans the DNA and maps the location of repeating alleles.
The alleles are assigned a pair of numbers for each of 13 genetic locations. The code is entered into the federal DNA database and the combined DNA index system, an F.B.I. software program that allows crime labs to share and compare genetic profiles across local, state and federal jurisdictions. If all 13 loci match a profile already in a database, the crime lab will notify the agency that sent the matching genetic sample; that agency can then try to find the source of the DNA and make an arrest.
When human remains decompose, regular DNA decomposes too. At that point, the lab may use another form of genetic material, mitochondrial DNA.But mitochondrial DNA passes only from the mother, making it less helpful for identifying unknown suspects.
In addition to speeding up DNA typing, the robotics will help avoid mistakes. Contamination and mislabeling have been documented in at least five states; the fewer hands needed to process DNA, the better, said Richard A. Guerrieri, chief of the forensic DNA lab.
Despite these improvements, F.B.I. officials still expect to struggle to stay abreast of the millions of new DNA samples expected to pour into the lab. Federal officials said that when Congress mandated the database expansion, it did not provide enough money.
“We went from federal offenders to arrestees and detained non-U.S. citizens,” said Robert Fram, the special agent in charge of the F.B.I. laboratory division. “We don’t know where, or if, the number of profiles will plateau.”
The Office of the Secretary to the Governor General (OSGG) is the government agency that supports the Governor General in delivering his/her mandate and in fulfilling his/her constitutional, state, ceremonial and other traditional responsibilities.
The Office is also responsible for planning and implementing the Governor General’s program and the many activities he/she undertakes with, and on behalf of, Canadians in communities across the country and abroad, as well as with the Canadian Forces as Commander-in-Chief[David Johnston authorized burning of the uniforms belonging to pedophile hybristophiliac and former OSGG pimp and pig-farm pilot, Russell Williams]. These activities serve to recognize outstanding achievement and the pursuit of excellence by Canadians, and to foster national identity, unity and pride. They also promote Canadian values such as respect for diversity, community participation and public education.
To help Canadians understand the roles and responsibilities of the Governor General and how he/she fulfills them, the Office offers both a public information program and extensive visitor and interpretation programs at the Governor General’s historic official residences at Rideau Hall in Ottawa and at La Citadelle in Quebec City. Together, as many as 200,000 people visit these sites each year.
The Chancellery of Honours forms an important part of the Office and administers all aspects ofCanada’s Honours System including, for example, the Order of Canada, the Bravery Awards, the Meritorious Service Decorations and the Caring Canadian Awards. The Chancellery also includesCanada’s Heraldic Authority.
The Operating Budget of the OSGG is approved by Parliament and the OSGG is therefore accountable to Parliament for its expenditures. These expenditures are made public through thePublic Accounts process at the end of every year.”
“SEC charges 4 ex-Nortel execs with fraud
Suit alleges they tried to bridge gaps in the company's performance by manipulating finances.
March 12 2007: 6:46 PM EDT
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- The Securities and Exchange Commission charged 4 former Nortel Networks executives with accounting fraud Monday.
Former CFO and Controller Douglas C. Beatty, former CFO and CEO Frank A. Dunn, former Controller Michael J. Gollogly and former Assistant Controller and VP of corporate reporting MaryAnne E. Pahapill have been named in a civil fraud suit brought by the SEC in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, according to a press release from the SEC.
The suit alleges the four Nortel (up $0.09 to $28.17, Charts) executives sought to bridge the gaps between the company's true financial performance, its internal expectations and Wall Street's targets between September 2000 and January 2004. Toronto-based Nortel is a telecommunications equipment manufacturer.
The complaint charges the four executives with fraud, falsifying books and records and lying to auditors. Each is also charged with aiding and abetting the company's violation of reporting, books/records and internal controls rules.
Dunn and Beatty are separately charged with violations of Sarbanes-Oxley officer certification provisions, the release said.
In an e-mailed statement, Nortel declined to comment on the SEC's case but said the company is continuing to cooperate with the Ontario Securities Commission, which is conducting a separate investigation.
In a statement, former CEO Frank Dunn questioned the timing of the SEC's investigation. "I am disappointed that, after three years, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission has brought charges on the same day in respect of the same matter as the Ontario Securities Commission.
"I think it would have been appropriate, under the circumstances, if the authorities in the United States had deferred to the Ontario Securities Commission in what is really a Canadian matter, and had acknowledged that the Canadian authorities are fully capable of addressing these important issues," Dunn said. "I hope that, so that the issues can now be fully and fairly explored, they will be dealt with in a hearing in Canada."
The SEC is seeking a permanent injunction, civil monetary penalties and the barring of officers and directors.
"Investors were misled for extended periods of time about the health and stability of Nortel's operations," said Christopher Conte, an associate director at the SEC's Division of Enforcement, in the release.
"Further, these defendants all received significant compensation, in some cases in the millions of dollars, while they were manipulating Nortel's financial results," said Conte.
Conte further alleged that "in some cases, these individuals received such compensation only because they manipulated Nortel's financial results."
“John Edgar Hoover (January 1, 1895 – May 2, 1972) was the first Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) of the United States. Appointed director of the Bureau of Investigation—predecessor to the FBI—in 1924, he was instrumental in founding the FBI in 1935, where he remained director until his death in 1972 at age 77. Hoover is credited with building the FBI into a large and efficient crime-fighting agency, and with instituting a number of modernizations to police technology, such as a centralized fingerprint file and forensic laboratories. Late in life and after his death Hoover became a controversial figure, as evidence of his secretive actions became known. His critics have accused him of exceeding the jurisdiction of the FBI. He used the FBI to harass political dissenters and activists, to amass secret files on political leaders, and to collect evidence using illegal methods. Hoover consequently amassed a great deal of power and was in a position to intimidate and threaten sitting Presidents.According to President Harry S Truman, Hoover transformed the FBI into his private secret police force; Truman stated that "we want no Gestapo or secret police. FBI is tending in that direction. They are dabbling in sex-life scandals and plain blackmail... J. Edgar Hoover would give his right eye to take over, and all congressmen and senators are afraid of him". …. He obtained a law degree from George Washington University Law School in 1916 where he was a member of the Alpha Nu Chapter of the Kappa Alpha Order and an LL.M., a Master of Laws degree, in 1917 from the same university. While a law student, Hoover became interested in the career of Anthony Comstock, the New York CityUnited States Postal Inspector, who waged prolonged campaigns against fraud and vice, and also was against pornography and birth control. Hoover lived in Washington, D.C., for his entire life.”
“We must now face the harsh truth that the objectives of communism are being steadily advanced because many of us do not readily recognize the means used to advance them…. No one who truly understands what it really is can be taken in by it. Yet the individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists. The American mind simply has not come to a realization of the evil which has been introduced into our midst.” (J. Edgar Hoover, The Elks Magazine, August 1956; quoted in Newquist, op. cit., p. 273.)”
