FOIA Director failed to disclose his Facebook intelligence conflicts when asked about Facebook addresses uncovered in Hillary’s private server
(Dec. 08, 2015)—Michael McKibben, Founder of Leader Technologies—the real inventor of social networking—just asked the U.S. Department of State’s Director and main Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) officer, John Hackett, to disqualify himself over his Hillary Clinton conflicts of interest.
Hackett is the State Department officer who has led the FOIA stonewalling of Hillary Clinton's emails requested by Judicial Watch and other watchdog groups. See Bade, R. (Jul. 29, 2015). Judge explodes over Hillary email delays. Politico.
State Department published a Facebook email address before the Leader v. Facebook trial
On Oct. 15, 2015, McKibben had filed a FOIA request asking for documents concerning the State Department’s development, publishing and use of the email address “USgovernment.fb.com” while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.
McKibben’s request followed the "rolling releases" of Hillary Clinton’s private emails to Judicial Watch. The emails show a relationship with Facebook’s Sheryl Sandberg which was close enough that Sandberg’s personal information was redacted by the State Department.
Sandberg fawns, Hillary responds
For example, on Oct. 17, 2012, Sandberg, Hillary and Hillary's chief of staff, Cheryl Mills have a cozy, partially-redacted chat about Sandberg's book manuscript. Sandberg fawns on Hillary to get a book endorsement, even offering to write it for her. (Sandberg: "Anything I can do to make this easy for her is great (happy to get quotes written you all can cobble together if that helps"). Notably, Sandberg goes out of her way not to step on political adviser Anne-Marie Slaughter's toes.
Also notable is the timing of Sandberg's email. It also occured on Oct. 17, 2012, the same day that the Patent Office "patent reexamination" kangaroo court reversed four previous rulings in Leader Technologies' favor and summarily invalidated their patent on social networking. Curiously, the panel had issued over 200 patents previously to IBM, Xerox and Microsoft—three (of the several hundred) Facebook cronies in IBM's Eclipse Foundation. The chief judge, Stephen C. Siu, formerly worked for IBM and Microsoft, yet failed to recuse. See previous post: "Patent Office Director David Kappos convened rare secret court with IBM cronies to kill Leader's patent."
Hillary's cozy relationship with Facebook was clearly there from before the beginning of Barack Obama’s first term.
On Feb. 10, 2007, Barack Obama announced his candidacy on Facebook.
On Jul. 9, 2009, Hillary’s emails show that her unofficial political adviser, Sidney Blumenthal, had drafted her first speech to the Council on Foreign Relations. Blumenthal wrote (and Hillary presumably repeated) “Twitter and Facebook will become as much a part of the diplomatic lexicon as cables and demarches.”
On Dec. 29, 2009, by Christmas that year, Hillary had developed a dinner guest list that she called her “Technology Connections dinner.” The dinner was slated to include seven of the companies that Edward Snowden revealed were already feeding customer data to the NSA. The Second Circuit U.S. Court has since declared that activity illegal. Those companies were Microsoft, Yahoo!, Google, Facebook, YouTube (owned by Google), Skype (ownded by Microsoft) and Apple.
Apparently, Leader Technologies, the proven, real inventor of the technology, was not invited. So much for Hillary's commitment to the U.S. Constitution and the rule of law.
During the same time period, Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg were stonewalling all discovery of Zuckerberg's computers from 2003-2004, eventually claiming they were lost. However, in 2012, twenty-eight (28) Zuckerberg hard drives appear two days after the Federal Circuit circle their judicial wagons around Facebook (and their pre-IPO Facebook financial holdings).
Tellingly, the State Department redacted the entire contents of Hillary’s speech to her “Technology Connections” dinner guests.
An earlier Aug. 16, 2009 email shows that Clinton and NSA director James L. Jones were collaborating and likely planning these "Technology Connections." On Dec. 02, 2011, these connections were called by Hillary’s adviser, Anne-Marie Slaughter, "public-private partnerships" where "private incentives are tied to public goals."
Fourteen months later, on Feb. 17, 2011, six of the seven Hillary tech dinner guests attended a private dinner with President Obama in Silicon Valley.

Hillary’s emails open the doors on the “public-private” spy state collusion
The bottom line is that Hillary's Judicial Watch emails open the doors on the Spy State Cartel. It appears that Hillary and Bill were prime movers who have just been better able to hide their duplicity. No wonder she is so smug.
However, as is always the case, Truth finds a way.
The big spy state cartel lie—lure citizens into "The Cloud," then ambush them
The evidence grows clearer every day that the entire social networking technology world was built on an elaborate spy state lie.
That lie was designed to lure unsuspecting citizens into “the cloud” where their privacy could be exploited endlessly in infinite swirls of “Big Data” titillation. Saul Alinsky named unsuspecting citizens “useful idiots.”
Bill, George and Barack all have one thing in common: Professor James P. Chandler.
Hillary and Bill helped lay the foundation, which was the intellectual brainchild of Harvard law professor James P. Chandler.
As Bill was leaving office, he turned Chandler over to George W. Bush, who let him keep going. After 9/11 Chandler practically had free reign. This group of sycophants moved in their people, heavily weighted toward Harvard hubris. It was done quietly and below the radar screen.
The Manchurian candidate is focused on this spy state "public-private partnership" agenda to feed his cronies with cash and power
Then came the Manchurian candidate, Barak Obama. His presidency has been successful at only one thing: this spy state "public-private" agenda to propel his crony network. Nothing else matters. Rest assured, his actions are not incompetent. They are evil.

The Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment empowers Congress to legislate a payday for Leader Technologies shareholders. This would provide adequate financing for Leader to offer a rational social networking environment—one that offers the application utility that 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.
