1. Abel Danger (AD) has linked Field McConnell's 'Deplorable' sister Kristine Marcy to a bypass of President Barack Obama on the Red Switch Network and Serco's alleged deployment of sensitive compartmented information facilities (SCIF) for the use of its 8(a) snuff-film crews.
2. AD claims that Marcy, founder of DOJ Pride and the all-powerful Senior Executive Service, decided Obama could not be trusted with Red Switch privileges and transferred responsibility for false-flag operations such as ISIS attacks in Brussels on March 22, 2016, to Serco snuff-film crews.

"February 4, 2012 Does Obama really lack cool phones? (Updated: December 21, 2014) In April last year, US president Obama told some fundraisers that he was disappointed by the communications equipment he found in the White House:
"I always thought I was gonna have like really cool phones and stuff," he said during a Q&A session with contributors at a fund-raising meeting in Chicago on April 14, 2011.
"We can't get our phones to work." Acting out his exasperation, he said: "Come on, guys. I'm the president of the United States! Where's the fancy buttons and stuff and the big screen comes up? It doesn't happen."
Obama made these remarks after the press pool had left and may not have realized some reporters back at the White House could still hear his comments. The president was probably responding to a question about bottlenecks in technological innovation and he used his White House experience as an example.
A lot of people would probably like to believe these remarks of the president, symbolizing the outdated state of the federal government. But in fact, what Obama said, isn't quite true.
In 2006-2007 president George W. Bush had the White House Situation Room completely renovated, providing it with state-of-the-art communications facilities. Since then the real Situation Room has all the phones and videoscreens and other stuff, which was before only seen in movies.
Also, when Obama took over the office in January 2009, he found quite a cool phone on the presidential desk in the Oval Office: an Integrated Services Telephone 2, or IST-2. This is a so called red phone (I'll explain that term in a later blog post) capable of making both secure and non-secure calls from one single instrument:
The IST-2 was installed in the White House in 2007. It's a phone specially designed for the US Defense Red Switch Network (DRSN), which connects the president and the Pentagon with all major military command centers. These new phones were part of an upgrade of the communications system, which became necessary after some serious communication problems occurred during the 9/11 attacks.
Therefore, the problems caused by outdated equipment should have been solved under president Bush. This would leave nothing to complain about for Obama anymore.
But there's an other interesting fact. Only a few weeks before Obama made his aforementioned remarks in April 2011, the rather rare IST-phone had just been replaced by two more ordinary sets:
Now we see a Cisco 7975G Unified IP Phone (with expansion module 7916) behind a Avaya/Lucent 8520T on Obama's desk. This Lucent phone is from the most widely used business phone series worldwide, but is dating back to the mid-nineties. The Cisco 7975G is a VoIP (Voice over IP) telephone, and as such also one of the most widely used. Both are high-end multiline models, with many functions and large displays, with the Cisco one even having a full colour touchscreen. This phone is also "cool", not because of having the military grade specifications or the exclusiveness like the IST-2, but because the phone (and its ringtone in particular) became an almost iconic item from the highly popular tv-series 24:
This series, which was broadcasted between 2001 and 2010, shaped people's imagination of the presidency and was in many ways a forerunner of reality. For example there was a popular black president (David Palmer) years before Obama was elected, and much of the fancy communications equipment from the series, like video teleconferencing, was implemented in the real White House Situation Room in 2007. And now the real president also has the same cool Cisco phone as the heroes used in the tv-series.
So, as we have seen, Obama didn't really tell the truth. The story he told the fundraisers was true during the beginning of the Bush administration, but not during his. Obama actually has some quite cool phones at his disposal, but maybe the only thing is that he just doesn't realize that".
"Twenty percent of senior executives unprepared for transition
By Brittany Ballenstedt
November 20, 2008
One-fifth of Senior Executive Service members have no knowledge of presidential transition activities at their agencies, according to a new survey by the National Academy of Public Administration.
The survey results, released on Thursday at the academy's fall meeting, indicated that most senior executives appear to be making traditional preparations for the handoff, such as compiling information on agency budgets and mandates, and scheduling briefings on key programs and initiatives. But 21 percent of executives said they were not aware of such actions.
"I'm a charter member of the SES, and the response of 20 percent of existing senior executives who said they could not answer the question of the transition activities under way at their agencies -- that's deplorable," said Kristine Marcy, an associate at the consulting firm McConnell International, during a presentation of the survey results. "The whole premise of the Senior Executive Service is that you have the management skills and the leadership skills to step up to the plate."
The questionnaire, which was distributed to 4,799 senior executives during September and October, had a 23 percent response rate. The goal was to determine how to best cultivate effective partnerships between career and political leaders in the next administration.
Marcy said executives who lacked transition knowledge might have a harder time forging relationships with appointees, and advised the academy to help train them. "It may mean they're risk-averse," she said, "but that's another troubling fact we need to deal with in government."
Most senior executives who responded to the survey said they had not been through a presidential transition in their current role, and 33 percent reported they had not experienced a shift in political leadership at their agency. Fifty-one percent of respondents said they have been in the government for more than 20 years.
Executives identified confirmation delays, a lack of trust between career and political officials, and appointee reluctance to identify and leverage the expertise of career employees as having the greatest potential to slow the transition. Responses also suggested that senior executives see their roles at federal agencies as internally focused, while they view political appointees as working externally, particularly with Congress.
NAPA recommended that executives conduct briefings on programs, the budget and strategic initiatives; learn how the goals and management styles of incoming appointees align with the organization; and provide honest counsel when appointees seek their help.
"There's a responsibility for career executives to prepare their organizations," Marcy said. "They have the responsibility for cross-training and cross-orientation with their peers and with their subordinate staff, and I think sometimes that's lost."
Meanwhile, NAPA conducted a separate survey of current Senate-confirmed presidential appointees to gauge their perspectives and to provide advice to the next generation of agency leaders. An interim report, also released at Thursday's meeting, said appointees listed managing and evaluating employee performance and measuring results among their most important responsibilities."

SBA modernizes to help feed its growing programs
BY PATRICIA DAUKANTAS | GCN STAFF
Under a five-year plan for overhauling its information technology systems, the Small Business Administration recently acquired new software for financial and other administrative tasks.
By the time SBA celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2003, agency officials want all their programs up and running around the clock, chief financial officer Joseph Loddo said.
In the first phase of the modernization, the agency has upgraded systems for managing its extensive portfolio of guaranteed loans, chief operating officer Kristine Marcy said.
SBA processed its first electronic loan last November through its Sacramento, Calif., office and plans to add more private lenders during fiscal 2001.
The agency's staffing level has dropped 22 percent over the past eight years, which is another reason to improve IT, Marcy said. Over the past decade, SBA's portfolio of loans to small and disadvantaged businesses has more than doubled to $50 billion.
'We're a small agency with a huge portfolio,' Marcy said. SBA supplies more than half of the U.S. venture capital available each year.
Seventy percent to 80 percent of the loans are booked through a preferred lender program, which involves nearly 7,000 banks, Marcy said. SBA guarantees the loans, just as the government backs student and housing loans.
'The financial and IT businesses were changing so rapidly, we had to make some changes to stay current with the private sector,' Marcy said. Banks had been asking SBA to make faster decisions on loan guarantees. The agency decided to aim for a turnaround time of one hour.
In the second phase of modernization, SBA is revamping its financial, human resources, procurement and travel systems with Web-enabled Oracle Corp. applications.
Online in October
The financial system will use Oracle's U.S. Federal Financials 3.3, which meets the requirements of the Joint Financial Management Improvement Program.
SBA announced the $1.5 million Oracle contract late last year and plans to bring the software online by Oct. 1, Loddo said.
'We need to make sure we are appropriately sensitive to small businesses' and have small-business partners, not just Oracle, Marcy said.
The second-phase integrator, SRA International Inc. of Arlington, Va., has subcontracted with a number of small firms for things such as training and data conversion.
Also, a core team of senior SBA employees has been transferred away from day-to-day tasks to help with the modernization, Loddo said.
In the final phase of the modernization, SBA will upgrade the computers in its 8(a) Business Development Program, which assists small businesses in competing for government contracts, Marcy said. The agency wants to be able to improve its tracking of clients' successes and failures. [Check https://www.sba.gov/sites/default/files/lender/inv_sbic-2008-10-b-831641en1.pdf]"

"A hidden world, growing beyond control
Monday, July 19, 2010; 4:50 PM ..
It's not only the number of buildings that suggests the size and cost of this expansion, it's also what is inside: banks of television monitors. "Escort-required" badges. X-ray machines and lockers to store cellphones and pagers. Keypad door locks that open special rooms encased in metal or permanent dry wall, impenetrable to eavesdropping tools and protected by alarms and a security force capable of responding within 15 minutes. Every one of these buildings has at least one of these rooms, known as a SCIF, for sensitive compartmented information facility. Some are as small as a closet; others are four times the size of a football field.
SCIF size has become a measure of status in Top Secret America, or at least in the Washington region of it. "In D.C., everyone talks SCIF, SCIF, SCIF," said Bruce Paquin, who moved to Florida from the Washington region several years ago to start a SCIF construction business. "They've got the penis envy thing going. You can't be a big boy unless you're a three-letter agency and you have a big SCIF."
SCIFs are not the only must-have items people pay attention to. Command centers, internal television networks, video walls, armored SUVs and personal security guards have also become the bling of national security. "You can't find a four-star general without a security detail," said one three-star general now posted in Washington after years abroad. "Fear has caused everyone to have stuff. Then comes, 'If he has one, then I have to have one.' It's become a status symbol."
Among the most important people inside the SCIFs are the low-paid employees carrying their lunches to work to save money. They are the analysts, the 20- and 30-year-olds making $41,000 to $65,000 a year, whose job is at the core of everything Top Secret America tries to do.
At its best, analysis melds cultural understanding with snippets of conversations, coded dialogue, anonymous tips, even scraps of trash, turning them into clues that lead to individuals and groups trying to harm the United States."
"REPORT CLAIMS CLINTON'S MAID HAD ACCESS TO A SCIF
NOVEMBER 9, 2016 GIKOREA 15 COMMENTS
The NY Post recently reported that Hillary Clinton had been allowing her maid to print out classified emails for her. What really puzzled me though was this passage where the maid had access to a SCIF:
Santos also had access to a highly secure room called an SCIF (sensitive compartmented information facility) that diplomatic security agents set up at Whitehaven, according to FBI notes from an interview with Abedin. From within the SCIF, Santos — who had no clearance — "collected documents from the secure facsimile machine for Clinton," the FBI notes revealed.
Just how sensitive were the papers Santos presumably handled? The FBI noted Clinton periodically received the Presidential Daily Brief — a top-secret document prepared by the CIA and other US intelligence agencies — via the secure fax. [NY Post]
Unless you are in the military or work with classified information in the government I don’t think most people realize how significant this is. How did the maid have access to a SCIF? How did she even get in? I could only imagine what would happen to a service member who brought a random janitor for example into a military SCIF and let them run around and grab documents.2"

Any infrastructure which cuts across multiple agencies requires the cooperation of the affected agencies to make it work. The Federal PKI is no different. While agencies may run their own agency-specific PKI domains to serve their own agency-specific needs, interoperating with other agencies imposes unique requirements and obligations. The model of governance reflects the fact that the Federal PKI has evolved from the bottom up, from agencies adopting this technology to serve their specific needs rather than having its use prescribed for them. In 1996, the Federal PKI Steering Committee was formed under the Government Information Technology Services Board, co-chaired by OMB and the National Partnership for Reinventing Government (NPR). The Steering Committee, comprising over 50 members representing over two dozen agencies, has as its focus the promotion of interoperable PKI solutions, the development of common guidance, and the sharing of information so that agencies considering or deploying PKI solutions can benefit from those who have already done so. Participation in the Steering Committee is voluntary. Its activities are published at http://gits-sec.treas.gov."

"UK Cabinet Office – Emergency Planning College – Serco …..Types of Exercise Workshop Exercises These are structured discussion events where participants can explore issues in a less pressurised environment. They are an ideal way of developing solutions, procedures and plans rather than the focus being on decision making. Table Top Exercises These involve a realistic scenario and will follow a time line, either in real-time or with time jumps to concentrate on the more important areas. The participants would be expected to be familiar with the plans and procedures that are being used although the exercise tempo and complexity can be adjusted to suit the current state of training and readiness. Simulation and media play can be used to support the exercise. Table-top exercises help develop teamwork and allow participants to gain a better understanding of their roles and that of other agencies and organisations. Command/Control Post Exercises These are designed primarily to exercise the senior leadership and support staff in collective planning and decision making within a strategic grouping. Ideally such exercises would be run from the real command and control locations and using their communications and information systems [Feeling lucky, Punk?]. This could include a mix of locations and varying levels of technical simulation support. The Gold Standard system is flexible to allow the tempo and intensity to be adjusted to ensure maximum training benefit, or to fully test and evaluate the most important aspects of a plan. Such exercises also test information flow, communications, equipment, procedures, decision making and coordination. Live Exercises These can range from testing individual components of a system or organisation through to a full-scale rehearsal. They are particularly useful where there are regulatory requirements or with high-risk situations. They are more complex and costly to organise and deliver but can be integrated with Command Post Exercises as part of a wider exercising package."
