Stop the Cartel
Letter to Congress: Word Doc

(Oct 23, 2015)—Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s Oct. 22, 2015 testimony to the House Select Committee on Benghazi testimony provided more proof that the U.S. government acted unconstitutionally in the Leader v. Facebook patent infringement case.

The American Spy State has overtaken U.S. government & digital networks

Albert Einstein warned us about the day that technology outstripped humanity's ability to control it. That day is upon us. Digital networks have been hijacked by morally-bankrupt individuals. For these warnings, even Einstein came under surveillance by U.S. secret services. [Lesson: Be brave. Do not be silenced by bullies.]

Fig. 2—The evidence is unmistakable. A Cartel of private companies, in collusion with the NSA, collect ALL relationship data between American citizens and the federal government. Much of that data is stored overseas, e.g., Lulea, Sweden, outside the jurisdiction of the U.S. Constitution ("Inside the Artic Circle, Where Your Data Lives," Business Week).

Who Killed the Liberal Arts?

As troubling as the documents Hillary now effectively admits withholding, her attorney, David Kendall, helped make those decisions in coordination with the State Department—his former client.

Kendall’s relationships, at minimum, have the appearance of impropriety and taint the Benghazi proceedings. His co-counsel on a Washington Post FOIA case was Paul Mogin, also a partner at Williams & Connolly LLP.

James P. Chandler’s first prosecution of the Economic Espionage Act (EEA) in 1998 was lead by Paul Mogin and Williams & Connolly LLP, in coordination with then Assistant Attorney General Eric H. Holder, Jr. Chandler’s close associations with: (1) Bill and Hillary Clinton, (2) Sidney Blumenthal, (3) then Assistant Attorney General Eric Holder, (4) the Department of Justice, as well as (5) Kendall and Mogin on their inaugural EEA trade secrets case, show motive and intent for Hillary to cooperate with Chandler to steal Leader’s invention. Hillary’s previously stonewalled State Department Facebook field guides prove she did.

Kendall had motive to hide the Facebook field guides

Department of State. Facebook Part 1: Getting Started with Facebook - A field guide for missions, posts and IRCs. International Information Programs, Office of Innovative Engagement, Dec. 26, 2012. Judicial Watch v. U.S. State Department, Doc. No. C05371180, Case No. F-2012-29278, 09/04/2013 (This first numbered document in the four-part series is nonsensically the last dated item).

Kendall’s relationship to Mogin and Chandler gave him a strong motive to withhold the Facebook field guides. Those guides proved that the State Department had confiscated Leader's invention during the Leader v. Facebook trial. This is precisely why the ethics rules prohibit attorneys from future involvement in cases involving former clients. See Rules of Professional Conduct 1.09.

Tellingly, just one day before husband Bill Clinton left the Presidency on Jan. 19, 2001, he appointed Chandler to his National Infrastructure Protection Council (NIPC). Chandler used NIPC as a platform to make sweeping judicial ethics rules changes that paved the way for the current spy state. Included in these changes was the False Statement Accountability Act of 1996, Subsection (b) permitting litigants to lie.

The Cartel needed the Orwellian named “Patriot Act” and “America Invents Act” to lure citizens into their “social” surveillance schemes

The September 11, 2001 tragedy accelerated Chandler’s changes via the Patriot Act that gave insider judges and the intelligence community near dictatorial snooping powers. Powers which have been abused and ruled illegal.

The America Invents Act was pushed through by Chandler’s IBM crony, David J. Kappos. The AIA gave big infringers the excuse to harass small inventors with endless “patent reexaminations” that effectively make those patents worthless. It should be noted that Chandler and Kappos began pressing IBM "junk patents" on smaller companies in the late 1990s and birthed the "patent troll." Contrary to the opposite spin, it is IBM that created the patent troll, not small inventors.

On July 27, 2010, Leader proved in a hard-fought Delaware federal trial that Facebook infringes its social networking patent on 11 of 11 claims. Yet, all the judges involved, including Chief Justice John Roberts, protected their personal investments in Facebook and friends (the “Cartel”), hid their conflict of interest, and failed to recuse themselves.

The spy state Cartel exploited Leader’s invention to manipulate elections

Philip R. Zimmermann, Creator, PGP encryption software
New, Oct. 29, 2015: Fig. 5—Philip R. Zimmermann created PGP (Pretty Good Privacy) encryption software in the early 1990s. On Jun. 26, 1996, after the U.S. government persecuted him for three years, Congress asked him to provide testimony on his views about privacy and our Republic. His concerns about government abuse are prophetic:

"The Clinton Administration seems to be attempting to deploy and entrench a communications infrastructure that would deny the citizenry the ability to protect its privacy. This is unsettling because in a democracy, it is possible for bad people to occasionally get elected—sometimes very bad people. Normally, a well-functioning democracy has ways to remove these people from power. But the wrong technology infrastructure could allow such a future government to watch every move anyone makes to oppose it. It could very well be the last government we ever elect."

This Cartel has been operating in relative obscurity since its inception in about 2001. The multi-faceted scheme centered on creating “total surveillance” capability for the NSA, both domestically and internationally.

Initially, the Cartel thought that IBM and Microsoft would provide the underlying technical architecture, but those plans were stalled when they discovered that their legacy platforms were not designed to operate on such a massive Internet scale.

Since 1997, Leader Technologies had been quietly working in Columbus, Ohio to solve this “scaling” problem. Once they broke through that barrier, Leader filed for patents. At that time, the Internet only had about 10 million users. Leader’s invention is now call “social networking.”

NSA spy master chose cronies over Constitution

Dumb luck for the Cartel happened when Leader’s inventor, Michael McKibben, reached out to prominent Washington, D.C. patent attorney, Professor James P. Chandler, to file their copyrights and patents. Little did Leader know that Chandler was an NSA spy master. While Leader celebrated Chandler’s involvement, Chandler secretly fed Leader’s invention to the Cartel.

The Phoenix-like emergence of social networking in 2004 was no accident. The Cartel carved up the Leader invention elephant into many pieces. Across the board, the intent was to create billions of “Big Data” touch points to humans across the planet in what they eventually labeled “The Internet of Everything” and “The Internet of Things.”

For example, Facebook launched on February 4, 2004 during the first IBM Eclipse Foundation convention, EclipseCon ’04. (Feb. 2-5, 2004).

Fig. 6—The “social networking” industry generates huge financial profits. But the Cartel manipulates the industry illegally. Regulators turn blind eyes to the Cartel's “Big Data” stock manipulation. Corrupt judges, politicians and regulators are influenced and bribed with insider stock tips. This appears to be the largest Ponzi scheme in history. The Cartel also has the ability to influence elections, using social networking tools to influence voters and control elected officials.
Graphic: AFI.

Virtually all “social” data flows through the NSA’s data collectors. The grand deal with the devil is that the NSA shares this data with their crony commercial vendors so they can exploit customer data, with the approval of end users who typically approve but fail to read slimy, long, and indecipherable legalistic end user license agreements.

Euphemisms for spy state invasion of privacy and property theft by big infringers:

  • The Internet of Things 
  • The Internet of Everything
  • Open Source
  • Big Data
  • Analytics
  • End user license agreement
  • America Invents Act
  • Patent reexamination
  • False Statements Accountability Act of 1996
  • FISA Court

With U.S. regulators in tow, the Cartel began raping and pillaging starting in 2008. First came the infamous bank bailout of 2008. This filled the coffers of the Cartel banks so they could leverage the cash offshore, then feed it back into crony stocks.

The Cartel micro-targeted voters in the 2008 and 2012 elections to bring Barack Obama to power. Then came Obamacare (led by crony vendors), the White House chief technology officers' "Datapalooza" (release of HHS data to Silicon Valley cronies), energy stimulus (more funds to cronies), net neutrality, Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) and a blizzard of intrusive Executive Orders.

The collusion between Wall Street and Silicon Valley exploded: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Wikipedia, Blogger, YouTube, Google+, Flickr, Yahoo, PalTalk, AOL, LinkedIn, Bebo, Digg, Pinterest, Hi5, Baidu, RenRen, Disqus, Snapchat, Tumblr, Twoo, WhatsApp, Vkontact, Foursquare, Square, Squarespace, Wordpress, etc.

The corrupt technology deal-making between commerce and the NSA was exposed by whistleblower Edward Snowden. See NSA PRISM Program.

The corrupt finance deal making involved offshore money launderers, as revealed recently by HSBC Whistleblower Hervé Falciani. See Facebook propped up by global money launderers.

The corrupt disinformation created to create the “false narratives” to hide these sins was funded by the C.I.A., as revealed by WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange. See Disastrous rise of a lawless C.I.A.

How has Congress been neutralized?

Think about it. If your opponent knows what you’re thinking and planning, and what your constituents think, then he or she can stay one step ahead of you, permanently.

Senators and Congresspersons have swallowed social networking, hook, line and sinker. A quick review of prominent members of Congress proves this.

Senator Harry Reid, home page
Rep. John Boehner, home page
Senator Mitch McConnell, home page
Rep. Nancy Pelosi, home page
Rep. Paul Ryan, home page

. . . You get the picture. We could keep going and include Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, FoxNews, NBC News, etc. They're all 100% monitored by the Cartel.

Exploitation of insider knowledge is a fundamental breach of arm’s length fairness ethical principles

The Cartel has used secrecy and the public’s lack of understanding about computers and software to create the American Spy State.

In the process, laws have been broken and the public trust abused.

Why didn’t the Cartel settle with Leader Technologies?

We believe they knew that Leader Technologies’ inventor, Michael McKibben, would not deal with the devil. They knew his integrity would not permit him to abuse the dignity and privacy of his fellow man to make a buck. They knew about his human rights work in the former Soviet Union and his collaboration with Saint John Paul (previously Pope John Paul II) in Poland. See "Pope John Paul II is the real deal."

In fact, we asked McKibben about this. He replied, "No one has said that to us directly, but the evidence certainly supports that premise."

Congress can stop the Spy State Cartel

For starters, the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment empowers Congress to legislate a payday for Leader’s shareholders. This would provide adequate financing for Leader to offer a rational social networking environment—one that offers the utility people have come to enjoy about Leader’s invention without sacrificing security and privacy.

Contact your elected representatives and ask them to use Congress' power of the purse to pay Leader Technologies and unplug the Cartel.

  3. I see that the Cartel's flunkies at the Justice Department closed their investigation of the IRS and Lois Lerner. They determined there was "mismanagement" but no fraud.

    I distinctly remember JPMorgan Chase's Jamie Dimon using "mismanagement" as the blanket excuse for the banks in the 2008 bailout.

    Hmmmmm. Mismanagement is the Cartel lawyer's smokescreen for FRAUD.

    1. An attorney I know says this is because there is no law against incompetence, idiocy and mismanagement, but there is law against fraud (doing something wrong intentionally).

  4. RED ALERT from CREDO:


    DON'T LET THE NSA SPY ON US: The Senate is about to vote on the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act. Masquerading as a cybersecurity bill, this bill opens the door to more government surveillance. Call and urge the Senate not to pass this bill.

    This form even give you a script for what you can say when you call.

  5. And the giant elephant in the room remains. Eclipse software is open source. Anyone can access it. So where is there a single example of Leader code in the eclipse code? This is conspiracy 101. If this blog had a shred of truth to it, this would have been raised years ago.

    1. We will not be helping you out of your feigned ignorance, Jill. Nice try. Anyone in software knows that all sorts of inventions get ripped off by "open source" claims by interlopers like your IBM / Eclipse / Facebook buds. "Buddies for Life?" We will be counting the rats as they jump ship. Your argument that if AFI's arguments were right someone in the mainstream media would have picked up the story is laughable. Thousands of stories lay fallow by the current crop of mainstream lemmings. Real journalists like Sheryl Attkisson are slowly outing your lunacy. If you are that influenced by shiny things, perhaps you should join the circus. Wait, seems like you already have.

  6. You are completely missing the point. The Eclipse software is OPEN SOURCE. This means that anyone can access it. IF there was even a shred of overlap between Eclipse software and anything that Leader created, it would be child's play to show that the code was identical. Ask yourself, in the years that this blog has been operating, why is there not a SINGLE EXAMPLE of identical code between Eclipse and Leader. This has nothing to do with reporters, the cartel, etc. These are cold, hard facts. If there was any overlap, it would have been apparent years ago. THAT is the point. Everything on this blog is all just bluster.

    1. Email comment by Charlie Brown:

      Jill, from reading your article, it's rather obvious you have never invented a thing in your life. It sounds like you are talking with some IT guy who thinks he knows the difference between Eclipse and Leader. It is rather obvious that you don't know about either. However, I do like reading cartoons and the funny page and your article fits somewhere in between, But, please keep writing. You are humorous.

    2. LOL Charlie. It's also rather obvious Jill really wants to know how AFI knows the IBM Eclipse code is not open source. She or he keeps repeating this same mantra, kinda like "Where's Waldo?". Also, AFI has provided a mountain of hard facts and all Eclipse-Facebook-IBM-NSA astroturfer Jillie can do is argue that it is all "bluster." That's oh so convincing.

  11. Ran across prophetic words from Philip Zimmermann, the creator of PGP encryption who was subsequently persecuted by the FBI for offering it:

    PHIL ZIMMERMANN, June 26, 1996: "The Clinton Administration seems to be attempting to deploy and entrench a communications infrastructure that would deny the citizenry the ability to protect its privacy. This is unsettling because in a democracy, it is possible for bad people to occasionally get elected-- sometimes very bad people. Normally, a well-functioning democracy has ways to remove these people from power. But the wrong technology infrastructure could allow such a future government to watch every move anyone makes to oppose it. It could very well be the last government we ever elect."

    Zimmermann warned us about the Clinton's and the Cartel twenty years ago. It appears that ALL of Zimmermann's worst fears have come true and that Congress did not heed his warnings.

    Well worth the read.

    1. Here's a downloadable PDF of Zimmermann's prescient 1996 testimony. Curiously, that was the same year that Professor James P. Chandler was on the move with the Economic Espionage Act, Federal Trade Secrets Act and the False Statements Accountability Act (made lying to Congress and courts legal). Our Washington D.C. sources say he loathed Zimmermann, but pretended later to like him while sucking his brain with kindness in order to defeat his libertarian views about privacy that ran counter to Chandler's spy state vision that Bill & Hillary Clinton endorsed hook, line and sinker.


    Dick Morris, former Bill Clinton political adviser, wrote yesterday that "Hillary Lied About DOMA On Maddow Show."

    Morris, D. (Oct. 29, 2015). Hillary Lied About DOMA On Maddow Show.

    "On MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, Hillary Clinton said that it was the threat of a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage that led Bill to sign the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).

    This statement is totally untrue. I was there and there was never any discussion of a constitutional amendment on the subject.

    ...President Clinton signed DOMA on September 21, 1996, just as the fall campaign was heating up. To say that it was to prevent a constitutional amendment on the subject is a blatant revision of history."

    The Fall of 1996 was a busy time for the Clintons.

    Sep. 21, 1996 Bill signed DOMA
    Oct. 11, 1996 Bill signed Economic Espionage Act (EEA) and the False Statements Accountability Act (James P. Chandler laws creating the spy state)

    Justifying the False Statements Accountability Act, 9th Circuit Clinton-appointed Judge Susan P. Graber affirmed it in US v. Horvath (2007): "Congress...chose to exempt from criminal liability certain kinds of lies to the federal government...even if the party makes the statements knowingly and willfully."

    Bill and Hillary's response to one lie is to tell two more on top of it. She evidently hopes the Great Unwashed Electorate are too stupid to figure out that they are being duped.

  13. Email comment by TEX:

    Seems that the political elite on both sides who want to control every aspect of our daily lives, force us to be politically correct, eliminate our sovereign borders , diminish our laws, and spy on our private lives, are just aghast that two non political outsiders are maintaining ( and even advancing) their grip on the GOP presidential nomination. Donald Trump and Ben Carson have very little in common with one big time exception. They are both unafraid to connect the dots and speak openly about the disaster awaiting this great country.

    Trump is loud, Carson quiet. Trump is really rich, Carson is just rich. Trump is among the best in his trade, Carson was THE BEST. Both are really smart. Both are very educated. Neither follow accepted political protocol including PC terminology. Both are willing and capable of derailing this madness. Neither have shown an inclination to be under the control of big political donors and that is so refreshing.

    On the other side we have an honest to goodness Socialist and perhaps the biggest liar in the history of US politics. Liar, liar, pant suits on fire. I can take Bernie if we finally succumb to socialism. He is honest about his intentions. Hillary, on the other hand, has not an ounce of integrity in her entire cellular being. Obama is very dishonest but Hillary makes him look like a choir boy. She will make a perfect final act of the progressive movement that began under socialist Woodrow Wilson in the early 1900's.

    So take your pick. Two political novices that are opposed to the politics that have evolved, or the perfectly evolved politicians that are opposed to the basic tenets of the country our founding fathers designed.

    Have a great day, TEX

  14. Finally, a real investigative story digging underneath the "patent troll" scam. AFI readers will recall we first exposed the truth behind the "patent troll" idea. It was actually hatched by IBM in the 1990's as way for IBM to monetize its tens of thousands of "junk patents." The perpetrators were IBM's inside counsel, David J. Kappos, and IBM's outside counsel, law professor James P. Chandler. Chandler boasts that this brainstorm singlehandedly turned around IBM's revenues. Then, when those IBM was suing (often with no real basis), started complaining, the IBM PR machine concocted the "patent troll" concept and blamed it on IBM's victims - small inventors.

    Thank you Joe Nocera. Somebody needs to let Joe know about AFI's investigations, if he doesn't already.

    Nocera, J. (Oct. 23, 2015). The Patent Troll Smokescreen. The New York Times.

    1. For new readers:

      Barack Obama appointed David J. Kappos as Director of the Patent Office in 2009. Talk about assigning the fox to guard the henhouse. Kappos, the original patent troll, running the Patent Office.

      Professor James P. Chandler became Leader Technologies' patent attorney in 2000. Within 11 weeks after Chandler received a custody copy of Leader's source code, all of Leader's innovations appeared in the next release of IBM's Eclipse Foundation "IDE" (Interface Development Environment) which IBM/Eclipse distributed to the entire tech world to fuel the mobile social revolution.

      In short, the entire social "revolution" is founded on a theft and lots of lies to cover it up.


    Save The Inventor has developed a website where you can oppose the deceptively named "Patent Act and Innovation Act." (H.R. 9 and S. 1137)

    Based on your location, they have automated access to the House and Senate web forms for your Senators and Representative. When you are done, they are submitted, saving you the time of going to each one individually.

    (If Save The Inventor is a scam or a ruse, they are pretty slick. We have been reserving judgment, but given their support of Joe Nocera's New York Times article and opposition to these horrible pieces of big-infringer legislation, we are inclined to think they are legit.)
