1. Abel Danger (AD) asserts that Donald Trump's aides arranged Rico loan-for-Serco-drone swaps where Trump Shuttle's racketeering creditors flew modified Boeing aircraft in the Unconventional Threat exercises of June 1-2, 2001 and the Live Fire Hijackings on 9/11.
2. AD asserts that Clinton Foundation donors set up a Twin Towers cat bond used by Rico associates of Trump Shuttle creditors including Serco 8(a) lender Citibank, to file phoney double occurrence claims for the controlled demolitions of the WTC towers on 9/11.
3. AD asserts that Dr. Ben Carson is the only candidate to have recognized that ".. we are in danger of losing our country" and asks voters to support him on Super Tuesday so Abel Danger leader U.S. Marine Field McConnell has the time needed to help Carson's campaign staff expose Serco's Rico bankers' role in the cat-bond insurance frauds and live-fire drone hijackings of 9/11.

Trump's 'Art of the Deal' Is a Total Fraud
There's been little discussion of how Trump might be influenced by the billionaire backing him: himself.
By Nomi Prins / TomDispatch October 1, 2015

The 2016 election campaign is certainly a billionaire's playground when it comes to "establishment candidates" like Hillary Clinton and Jeb Bush who cater to mega-donors and use their money to try to rally party bases. The only genuine exception to the rule this time around has been Bernie Sanders, who has built a solid grassroots following and funding machine, while shunning what he calls "the billionaire class" that fuels the super PACs.
Donald Trump, like Ross Perot back in the 1992 and 1996 elections, has played quite a different trick on the money-saturated American political system. He has removed the billionaire as middleman between citizen plebeians and political elites, and created a true .00001% candidate, because he's... well, a financial elite unto himself, however conveniently posed as the country's straight-talking "everyman." ..
The Donald has long perfected two proven strategies for winning: attack and deflect. On both counts, he is a TV veteran. Appearing on NBC's Late Night with David Letterman in 1987 to promote The Art of the Deal, his skill in deflecting attention from aspects of his life that might otherwise diminish his aura was already on full display. When Letterman probed the particulars of Trump's personal wealth multiple times, he dodged effectively, insisting, "You'll never get it out of me." He also deflected his host's question about the degree to which his father’s money contributed to his success. "He was a solid guy and a bright guy, I learned a lot" was about all Letterman could dig out of him on Fred Trump.
.. Trump's Bankruptcies As Carly Fiorina made crystal clear to almost 23 million Americans in the second Republican debate (the topic had been broached in the first one), Trump's companies have officially gone bankrupt four times since 1991, or as Trump spun it, "I used the law four times and made a tremendous thing. I'm in business. I did a very good job."
While that's a small number of bankruptcies relative to the hundreds of companies that comprise his empire, they represented a fair amount of debt. There was the Trump Taj Mahal (with $1 billion in debt) in Atlantic City in 1991 and the Trump Plaza Hotel in Atlantic City in 1992 (with $550 million in debt). Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts, the company created from the post-bankruptcy ashes of the Taj Mahal, the Trump Plaza, and also Trump Marina in Atlantic City filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (with $1.8 billion of debt) in 2004. Bankruptcy number four, Trump Entertainment Resorts (the post-bankruptcy company created to take over the remains of Trump Hotels and Casino Resorts) filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (with $1.74 billion of debt) in February 2009. ..
In 1989, for instance, Trump purchased the Eastern Air Shuttle, connecting New York, Boston, and Washington, D.C. with hourly flights, for roughly $365 million. But the Trump name didn't carry the day and passengers didn't pony up for the line's fancier seats and gold lavatory fixtures. Instead, in 1990 Trump defaulted on the loans he had taken out to finance the company, and its ownership reverted to its creditors, led by Citibank. The Trump Shuttle was then merged into a new corporation, Shuttle Inc., and in April 1992, its routes were assumed by USAir Shuttle, which is one way the rich make problems disappear.
.. Unfortunately, we are used to politicians saying whatever they think they need to say to be elected president, and falling way short of their campaign promises on the job. Even scarier would be the notion of selling America to the craftiest bidder. The election may be more than a year away, but isn't it time to dig beneath the carefully crafted persona that is Trump and unearth the person and the full spectrum of his business dealings? To see the real Donald Trump is to plunge into all the conflicts of interest he denies, the financial tricks he dispenses, the crucial details he obfuscates, and the flimflam he offers up day in, day out.

"Poll: Trump and Carson neck-and-neck
By Eric Bradner, CNN
Updated 8:08 AM ET, Wed November 4, 2015 | Video Source: CNN Washington (CNN)
Donald Trump and Ben Carson are running neck-and-neck in the Republican primary, a new national poll shows.
Trump has 24% support compared to Carson's 23% in a new Quinnipiac University survey.
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio comes in No. 3 with 14% support, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz is No. 4 with 13%.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush is next with just 4% support, followed by Carly Fiorina, New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Ohio Gov. John Kasich at 3% each, and then Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul at 2%.
Among Democrats, Hillary Clinton has maintained her hefty lead -- with 53% backing to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders' 35%.
The worst news for Clinton comes in a head-to-head with Carson, where she trails 50% to 40%.
"Is there a doctor in the house? There certainly is and at the moment Dr. Ben Carson is delivering a troubling diagnosis to Secretary Hillary Clinton," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll, in a release accompanying the poll. "With the election one year away, Ben Carson has surgically cut away all but one GOP opponent and taken a scalpel to Hillary Clinton's lead."
"Is Ben Carson Preparing to Drop out After Super Tuesday?
By: Leon H. Wolf (Diary) | February 26th, 2016 at 09:00 PM | 20
Ben Carson isn't really running to win and hasn’t been for quite some time. For all that everyone – including Ben Carson – knows that he has absolutely no chance, Ben Carson has publicly said that he has no intention of quitting, perhaps ever. Those direct mail envelopes aren't going to return themselves, you know.
In a recent fundraising pitch to supporters, however, Ben Carson admitted that if he doesn’t do well on Super Tuesday, he is screwed. Here's the whole email.
This may be one of the more personal emails that you'll receive from me. But as one of my most dedicated supporters, I need to shoot straight with you.
The four early-voting states — Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada — have all spoken, and we did not finish where we had hoped. While in many ways we've made history throughout this campaign, the results of these contests have definitely been disappointing. But we must accept the reality of where we are and look forward, not back.
Our next opportunity is Super Tuesday on March 1st. It's a big deal. 12 states will be voting and a whopping 595 delegates — nearly 25 percent of the total number — will be rewarded. They are states where I should be very competitive; states like Georgia, Tennessee and Alabama.
Without a strong showing, it's going to be very tough for my campaign. That’s the honest truth.
In my heart of hearts, I believe we have an opportunity to break through. With just 5 of the original 17 candidates remaining, there should now be more time to focus on ideas and solutions rather than just personalities. But we can only break through if we stick together.
Many in the political and media establishment are saying I have no path forward. They’re now mocking me, calling for me to drop out, and in some cases even questioning my integrity by saying I'm only doing this for personal gain.
This just proves that they don't know or understand me. Then again, they never have.
Running for President was never on my bucket list. After a long and arduous career I was looking forward to retirement. But we are in danger of losing our country, and I care much more deeply about the future of my children and grandchildren than my own pleasure. Hundreds of thousands of people from all walks of life urged me to run, and after much prayer I decided to move forward. Since then, millions more have joined me and we've made a much larger impact than any of the experts ever thought was possible.
I've put my heart and soul into this race and not once have I compromised my values and principles for political expediency — and that's exactly how I would serve in the Oval Office.
So here's my request — as we prepare for Super Tuesday, please make your first online donation of just $2. We have 12 states to cover and we must have a strong showing.Note that, typically, Carson does not promise that he will drop out, so that the charade can go on after Super Tuesday is over, if the people handling his mailing list think it's necessary. But the fact that he's admitting to his own supporters that he’s going to have a tough time if he doesn’t do well on Super Tuesday at least gives us hope."
[SUPPORTER NAME], I'm committed to giving you a voice because it's been ignored for far too long.
Together we’ve built a movement of people from every part of the country and from every walk of life. We've brought new people into the political process, and brought many who had given up back into the fold. This campaign gave them hope for the future.
Now, more than ever before, I need your help. I need you to think back to the time you first signed up to join my campaign, and in that spirit please make a donation of just $2.
Thank you for joining me in this fight for our values, and for the future of this exceptional nation.
"Hillary Clinton cruised Saturday to an easy victory in the South Carolina Democratic primary, taking back the momentum from Bernie Sanders heading into Super Tuesday – though Sanders will keep his foothold in the race as he continues to rack up delegates and contributions.
Fox News projected Clinton's win moments after polls closed. The Democratic front-runner rode to victory on the strength of her support from black voters – her so-called "firewall" that, in the end, held up.
Exit polls showed more than eight in 10 black voters supported Clinton in the Palmetto State, and she hopes those voters will carry her over her rival as the race heads deeper into the South. With a Nevada and South Carolina win now under her belt, Clinton is working hard to shake off her big loss to Sanders earlier this month in New Hampshire."

"MDA Wins Key U.S. Aviation Contract
Press Release Source: MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd.
Posted Thursday, May 3, 2001
Richmond, B.C. - MacDonald, Dettwiler and Associates Ltd. (TSE: MDA) announced today the company has been awarded a contract by the United States Air Force to develop a system to be used by specialists at Air Force bases to design Instrument Approach Procedures (IAPs). IAPs are published instructions to pilots specifying a series of aircraft maneuvers that must be executed for the aircraft to transition safely from an en route airway to a runway final approach when flying by instruments. MDA's system ingests digital terrain and elevation data, air navigation data (such as the locations of navigation aids, runways, buildings and towers) to build and display a virtual model of the physical environment surrounding an airport. It then develops the complex surfaces that define a safe approach corridor for any of the dozens of IAP variants, and determines whether any of the defined surfaces are penetrated by terrain or man-made obstacles. It flags these incursions to the operator, who can quickly modify the approach procedure through a drag-and-drop user interface.
This initial award, valued at $2.9 million (CDN), consists of a fixed price element to develop, integrate, and test the system. The next phase will include installation, government testing, and operator training. The contract includes an option for the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to adapt the system for their needs. The U.S. Air Force also has options to field the successful system at up to 108 air bases around the world, and to award T&M support contracts for up to 8 years. MDA plans to team up with Air Navigation Data (AND) of Ottawa to offer a custom solution, based on AND's "Final Approach" product.
MDA President and CEO Daniel Friedmann said: "This is a significant project for MDA that has the potential to improve the safety of air transportation for many other air forces and civil aviation authorities world wide."

"Catastrophe bonds (also known as cat bonds) are risk-linked securities that transfer a specified set of risks from a sponsor to investors. They were created and first used in the mid-1990s in the aftermath of Hurricane Andrew and the Northridge earthquake.
Catastrophe bonds emerged from a need by insurance companies to alleviate some of the risks they would face if a major catastrophe occurred, which would incur damages that they could not cover by the premiums, and returns from investments using the premiums, that they received. An insurance company issues bonds through an investment bank, which are then sold to investors. These bonds are inherently risky, generally BB, and usually have maturities less than 3 years. If no catastrophe occurred, the insurance company would pay a coupon to the investors, who made a healthy return. On the contrary, if a catastrophe did occur, then the principal would be forgiven and the insurance company would use this money to pay their claim-holders. Investors include hedge funds, catastrophe-oriented funds, and asset managers. They are often structured as floating-rate bonds whose principal is lost if specified trigger conditions are met. If triggered the principal is paid to the sponsor. The triggers are linked to major natural catastrophes. Catastrophe bonds are typically used by insurers as an alternative to traditional catastrophe reinsurance.
For example, if an insurer has built up a portfolio of risks by insuring properties in Florida, then it might wish to pass some of this risk on so that it can remain solvent after a large hurricane. It could simply purchase traditional catastrophe reinsurance, which would pass the risk on to reinsurers. Or it could sponsor a cat bond, which would pass the risk on to investors. In consultation with an investment bank, it would create a special purpose entity that would issue the cat bond. Investors would buy the bond, which might pay them a coupon of LIBOR plus a spread, generally (but not always) between 3 and 20%. If no hurricane hit Florida, then the investors would make a healthy return on their investment. But if a hurricane were to hit Florida and trigger the cat bond, then the principal initially contributed by the investors would be transferred to the sponsor to pay its claims to policyholders. The bond would technically be in default and be a loss to investors.
Michael Moriarty, Deputy Superintendent of the New York State Insurance Department, has been at the forefront of state regulatory efforts to have U.S. regulators encourage the development of insurance securitizations through cat bonds in the United States instead of off-shore, through encouraging two different methods—protected cells and special purpose reinsurance vehicles. In August 2007 Michael Lewis, the author of Liar's Poker and Moneyball, wrote an article about catastrophe bonds that appeared in The New York Times Magazine, entitled "In Nature's Casino.""
"Cantor Fitzgerald's corporate headquarters and New York City office,on the 101st–105th floors of One World Trade Center in Lower Manhattan(2–6 floors above the impact zone of a hijacked airliner), were destroyed during the September 11, 2001 attacks. At 8:46:46 A.M., six seconds after Cantor's tower was struck by the plane, a Goldman Sachs server issued an alert saying that its trading system had gone offline because it wasn't able to connect with a Cantor server. Cantor Fitzgerald lost over two-thirds of its workforce, considerably more than any of the other World Trade Center tenants or the New York City Police Department, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey Police Department, the New York City Fire Department, and the United States Department of Defense."

Amazingly, he was also in the World Trade Centre on 9/11, on the 47th floor addressing shareholders [such as Wells Fargo with an insured interest in the leveraged lease on the WTC Twin Towers]. Serco run navy patrol boats for the ADF, as well as search and salvage operations through their partnership with P&O which form Defence Maritime Services.
