Obama tapped Stephen C. Siu to disrupt Leader Technologies' social networking patent to amass money, votes & Power
(Dec. 24, 2014)—President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder seem to have taken the alleged hack of Sony by North Korea a little too personally.
Apparently, only Obama's government is allowed to steal intellectual property. Ironically, Obama's brouhaha over a satirical comedy ignores his exploitation of Columbus-based Leader Technologies’ social networking invention for a decade.
Men who live in glass houses should not throw stones
The Sony hack is child's play. Obama and Holder have orchestrated one of the greatest intellectual property thefts of all time—the theft of Leader Technologies’ social networking invention. Aided by IBM’s David J. Kappos (later Patent Office director), Leader’s attorneys Washington, D.C.-based James P. Chandler, and Silicon Valley's Fenwick & West LLP (later Facebook's attorney), Holder helped create The Eclipse Foundation on Nov. 29, 2001. Their mission was to capitalize on Leader’s breakthrough innovations for themselves and their grand plans.
Global Control of “The Internet of Things”
Their agenda is voracious and global: banking, finance, education, politics, economics, healthcare, tax, regulation, environment, law, security, legislation, energy, social, entertainment. They want it all, and they were not going to let Leader’s intellectual property rights stand in the way of their vision for “The Internet of Things” (a global agenda pressed by IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Cisco, and Wind River).
Eclipse set out to eviscerate Leader’s intellectual property rights in legal sophistry
In their Grand Poobah benevolence, these people decided that Leader’s invention should be “open source” (freely available to all) and not owned by Leader. Never mind that Leader had invested over $10 million and 145,000 man-hours to invent it, had been awarded multiple patents, and had proven in federal court that Facebook was guilty on 11 of 11 counts of using the invention illegally. According to sources, Chandler, a professor emeritus of law at George Washington University, once told a Leader official “sometimes the rights of a few must be sacrificed for the rights of the many.” Textbook socialism.
Here are just a few ways President Obama’s government has exploited Leader’s invention. Obama’s government has relied heavily on Leader’s invention for its existence.
Hacker-in-Chief Barack Obama's Intellectual Property Sins dwarf Kim Jong Un's
- Candidate Barack Obama announced his candidacy on Facebook—Leader’s invention, on Feb. 10, 2007.
- Obama relies on Leader’s invention for Organizing For America (OFA), formerly Obama For America, for daily propaganda and donations.
- Obama and Holder hired Facebook’s Cooley Godward LLP attorney, Donald K. Stern, to recommend White House judge selections that included the Leader v. Facebook judge, Leonard P. Stark, then they allowed Cooley Godward LLP to defend Facebook in the trial. Corruption personified.
- Obama’s 2008 and 2012 election victories are credited to the demographic data gleaned from Facebook—Leader's invention.
- Obama appointee, David J. Kappos, former IBM chief intellectual property counsel and The Eclipse Foundation founder, started the Patent Office Facebook page on May 14, 2010, two months before the Leader v. Facebook trial in a clearly prejudicial defiance of propriety.
- Obama has incorporated Leader’s invention throughout HealthCare.gov, most specifically through the activities of Todd Y. Park's two "social" medical companies, Castlight Health and athenahealth—Yes, Park implemented his own company's technology in Obamacare—more textbook corruption.
- Obama’s government has pressed for release of government “big data” to Facebook cronies; this helps populate "The Internet of Things" global data base on every citizen. "Dark Profiles" are being created on every U.S. citizen in the unregulated hands of private entities.
- The NSA, IRS, FEC, HHS and SEC have been feeding these dark profiles.
- Obama’s agencies have pressed Congress and C-SPAN to exploit Leader’s technology and feed these dark profiles.
- We’re just getting started with this list . . .
Only crickets are chirping in Eric Holder’s law enforcement backyard
What has Eric H. Holder done to protect Leader’s property rights? <<< Click here to hear Eric Holder's crickets>>>. Instead, he has failed across the board to prosecute profligate judges, attorneys, regulators, politicians and bureaucrats who are supporting this agenda.
Tellingly, neither has Holder prosecuted a single Wall Street executive for the so-called 2008 banking meltdown. The similarities of inaction are apparent. Perhaps the 2008 “crisis” was an elaborate fabrication to create an excuse to implement “social” technology broadly—before the world could figure out this agenda?
Anatomy of Hacker-Judge Stephen C. Siu
Here’s an example of how Obama, Holder and Chandler executed their agenda with minions inside the Patent Office. Kappos assigned patent judge Stephen C. Siu to handle the unprecedented third reexamination of Leader Technologies’ patent. (Kappos' invocation of this special director power designed only for the most extreme of hardship situations had never been seen before in living memory.)
Here’s the timeline of Judge Siu’s entry into the Leader v. Facebook case:
|Mar. 22||IBM sold 750 patents to Facebook|
|Apr. 17||David J. Kappos ordered the 3rd Leader reexam; assigned Stephen C. Siu and IBM, Microsoft, Xerox cronies|
|May 19||Facebook public offering; Kappos' and Siu's investments benefited substantially|
|Apr. 29||Patent Judge Stephen C. Siu magically affirms IBM, Xerox and Microsoft prior art that Facebook had lost on resoundingly at trial and in two previous reexams. A total reversal in favor of Facebook, IBM and The Eclipse Foundation.|
|Conflicts Disclosures?||None. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Nada. Kappos and Siu worked for IBM; Judge Siu worked for Microsoft; staffers had issued 212 patents to IBM, Microsoft and Xerox; Kappos and Siu held Facebook, IBM, Microsoft and Xerox stock; Kappos ran a Patent Office Facebook page and posted regularly. Siu failed to disclose his IBM and Microsoft relationships when citing their failed prior art in the 3rd reexam. Siu failed to disclose his legal team's plethora of relationships with IBM, Microsoft, Xerox and Facebook.
|Table 1: Timeline of Patent Office conflict of interest in Leader v. Facebook.|
Judge Siu is a former Microsoft employee as well. Siu’s three-judge panel and attorneys had collectively issued 212 patents to IBM, Microsoft and Xerox. Staff attorney William J. Stoffel lists IBM and major Facebook investors Vanguard and Fidelity as conflicts. Therefore, these people should never have touched this matter, and yet they not only touched it, they eviscerated it.
During the proceedings, Siu cited Facebook arguments about Microsoft and Xerox that Leader had already refuted soundly three times, once at trial and twice in previous reexams. Then magically, Siu’s Patent Trial and Appeals Board (PTAB) reversed 10 years of decisions validating Leader's innovations. Siu ignored the Code of Conduct that requires judges to flee even the appearance of impropriety. The conflicting Facebook-IBM-Microsoft-Xerox associations among Kappos, Siu, Stoffel make the reexamination a transparent fraud. See p. 33 Request for Congressional Intervention.
In lockstep, these officials cite a euphemistically named “safe harbor” exemption buried on page 202 of a 241-page Judicial Conference "advisory opinion." However, that same opinion says "even one share" of stock held by a spouse demands disclosure. It also says that the exemption does not apply if you get regular portfolio reports, which all mutual funds are required by law to provide twice a year. Neither does the exemption apply if the judge buys and sells stocks out of the fund, which Siu does.
Bottom line, the “safe harbor” excuse is a ruse for hiding holdings in crony companies. It's "the dog ate it" excuse that no one appears to have questioned until AFI started alerting Americans to this grossly unethical practice.
Judge Siu stuffed his pockets with Facebook stock and related interests
[Read: The damage I helped create has already been done. Move on folks. Didn't you get the memo? I am above the law, just like patent judge Stephen C. Siu and everyone else in this administration.]
Siu’s relationships with IBM, Microsoft, Vanguard and Fidelity notwithstanding, Siu also invested up to $2.1 million in 28 mutual funds that hold 644 holdings totaling a whopping $140 billion (with a B) stocks and bonds in Facebook and companies with direct Facebook interests, most notably Facebook’s underwriters.
Six of Siu’s funds hold $4 billion in Facebook stock directly, including Facebook’s largest mutual fund investor, Fidelity Contrafund (Ticker Symbol FCNTX). Contrafund is reserved for the Facebook Cartel elite, including Chief Justice John G. Roberts, Jr., Eric H. Holder and three of the four Leader v. Facebook judges.
Methodology: We studied public SEC filings to catalog the portfolio holdings inside these funds. Once you determine the "ticker symbol" for the fund, like Fidelity Contrafund's is FCNTX, the annual FORM N-CSR reports for the fund can be easily obtained at www.sec.gov. A single holding was counted as one, no matter whether it reflected a $1 billion Facebook investment or a $10 million JPMorgan bond. If two different funds held the same underlying nested fund that contained Citigroup stock, for example, that Citigroup interest was counted twice, since each holding is a separate conflict of interest. SEC filings are "judicially recognizable," meaning they can be used as evidence in court without further verification.

Certain American judges suffer from sudden-onset-wealth syndrome
Judge Siu’s financial conflicts show the same pattern of investing that we have uncovered in about 50 judges, politicians and bureaucrats dubbed “The Facebook Cartel.” The sudden-onset wealth acumen acquired by these individuals is truly magical.
What’s the end game?
We are often asked where we think these people are headed with the now evident collusion. We believe these people have convinced themselves that the world will be better off if they surreptitiously take control of the global digital infrastructure.
The end justifies the means
This Cartel has decided that Leader’s patents, Dr. Arunachalam’s patents, Paul Ceglia's civil rights, Johannes Van Der Meer's patent, your health data, your IRS financial data, your banking data, your choice of physician, your privacy, etc. are required, even if they must lie, cheat, steal, wage war, betray, propagandize, and fabricate diversions to get them. Ironically, a very high percentage of these people are Harvard graduates who have formed a quite unholy alliance with Wall Street and Silicon Valley.
Before Obama leaves office . . .
President Obama's priorities over the next two years will reinforce this agenda, we predict. His priority to lower Pacific trade barriers, deregulate Internet domain naming, immigration, executive orders, stonewalling, vote subgroup pandering are not random or incompetent. They make perfect sense in light of the Cartel's agenda to seize control of America's digital infrastructure, in perpetuity.
Nothing else matters in this agenda. Not America. Not the Constitution. Not property and privacy rights. Not human decency.
If this Cartel is permitted to take over the digital pipes of our lives, they will control our conversation, finances and votes through titillation, coercion, advertising, propaganda, censorship and message manipulation.
Is the American citizen (We the People) "too stupid" to stop this takeover?
We don't think so.
Merry Christmas to all.
Let's restore our sacred America rights in the New Year before these profligates do even more damage. The long lesson of history is that citizens either defend their rights, or they lose them.
