PROMIS VERSION 2.0

PROMIS VERSION 2.0?

Given the amount of distraction and ginned up hysteria being caused by the corona virus story, I have to admit I'm a bit surprised that any other news is being reported at all. In fact, I'm actually thinking of changing this website's motto from "high octane speculation" to "all the news except corona virus." It's a "coincidentally convenient" thing to have around especially when one doesn't want to report, or talk about, other stuff like this story spotted by K. M. (to whom a thank you for bringing it  to our attention):

Former Acting Inspector General for Department of Homeland Security Indicted

Now, do you remember the PROMIS-Inslaw story from the Reagan era? Inslaw was a company founded by Bill Hamilton, a former NSA employee, to develop software that was capable of reading databases in almost any computer language, no mean feat, even today. But in the 1980s, a boon to a federal government which, when it computerized, wasn't paying too much attention to the software systems its various agencies were buying and operating. Developed for the Department of Justice, Hamilton's software, PROMIS, stood for PROsecutor's Management Information Software, and was designed to be able to track cases through the federal justice system, in all offices, regardless of what languages the Department of Justice's field office computers were using. It was able to compile databases from almost anything, and  that, of course, made it a target for greedy covert operators, who recognized its adaptability to be able to compile databases and searches on almost anything. Appropriately, Attorney General Ed Meece's Department of Justice stole the software, which, according to the story, was quickly modified by the US  intelligence "community" which added secret "back doors", and then promptly sold the bugged software to foreign nations, thus gaining entre into their secret databases and cyber archives. Along the way, the story was further embellished, with claims that its original programmers had also programmed in their own "back door viruses" unbeknownst to Inslaw itself, in a fashion recalling the Person of Interest character Harold Finch, who had created the ultimate database computer compiler for the government's war on terror. Finch's partner programmed a back door into the program, allowing private access to "the Machine's
capabilities.

With that in mind, the following paragraphs from this article should sound rather familiar, and make the hair's of the back of one's neck stand on end:

The former acting inspector general for the Department of Homeland Security was indicted for alleged fraud and theft, according to the Department of Justice.

Charles Edwards, 59, served as the acting inspector general for the agency between 2011 and 2013 as part of former President Barack Obama’s administration.

Edwards, of Maryland, and 54-year-old Virginia resident Murali Yamazula Venkata were both charged with wire fraud conspiracy to commit theft of government property, conspiracy to defraud the United States, aggravated identity theft, and theft of government property. Additionally, Venkata, a former subordinate of Edwards, is accused of destroying records, said the Justice Department.

The pair were accused of hatching and executing “a scheme to defraud the U.S. government by stealing confidential and proprietary software from [Homeland Security’s] Office of Inspector General,” said the Justice Department in a news release on Friday, adding that “sensitive government databases containing personal identifying information” of Homeland Security and U.S. Postal Service employees were accessed and stolen.

Then, according to the release, Edwards’s firm Delta Business Solutions “could later sell an enhanced version of” of the software to the U.S. Department of Agriculture “at a profit.”

Let that sink in a moment: the Department of Homeland Security (or as we like to refer to it here, the Reichsicherheithauptamt, version 2.0), a central and crucial component of the US intelligence and counter-intelligence "community", has had software stolen from its inspector general's office, allegedly by an acting inspector general himself, who apparently intended to "re-sell" the software back to other departments of the federal swamp, which could pay for the "purchase" and never have to render any accounting, thank you FASAB56. Now, if this sounds to you a little bit like the PROMIS story, then join the club, because that's the way it looks and smells to me as well. A little back door here, a little back door there, and voila, as the article points out, you have the names, addresses and so on of federal government employees. Indeed, one has to wonder if the software itself was not some updated version of PROMIS to begin with. (My bet? It was.)

There's another nasty implication here that comes from indulging in a little high octane speculation. The article presents the story as if the former acting inspector general of the Reichsicherheithauptamt (version 2.0) was just out for a quick buck along with an associate. This raises all sorts of nasty questions about the vetting and screening of personnel within the agency. But there's an even deeper implication. What if he was not, but rather, an agent for someone else? Or what if, recognizing the potential gold mine that theft of the software represented, he had contacted some foreign government or external entity to make a sale?

So in other words, there are some very disturbing questions hovering over this story: (1) Who vetted this man and what were the standards? (2) Is the software some highly updated version of PROMIS, or something completely new? (3) Is this man genuinely a free agent, out for a quick buck, or does he in reality work for someone else, or did he approach some foreign power, or external corporate entity, to make the sale of the software?

Put this way, I suspect there's a lot more to this story than we're being told. And for my part, I incline to the view that this may have been the latest chapter in the PROMIS saga.

See you on the flip side...

  1. Another couple options to consider:
    He was a bad actor in a sea of bad actors, served his time and their collective purpose and now they turned on him and are scapegoating him.
    Or
    He was clean in a somewhat smaller sea of bad actors, served his time and their purpose and not they turned on him and are scapegoating him.

    Black Ops 101 – The Dark Truth About the CIA

    have me thinking we are having an up close personal view of the USA collapse similar to the USSR collapse where Gorbachev (Obama) passes off to Yeltsin (Trump) who passes off to Putin (?????????).

    In that process, Gorbachev declares Perestroika (openness) and the KGB is brought out of their closet – to a degree. And blamed for all bad things – to a degree. At least up to and not including the admission of the narrative of Putin’s apartment buildings being bombed to justify a war in Chechnya and a massive martial law lock down and consolidation of power under Putin.

    Ok so maybe Trump is the Gorbachev.

  2. With respect to relating this to PROMIS I’ve written a few items on this forum about that question in the past. Because of this, I’m not going to discuss that thread, but start a new one. Whatever software was “stolen”, the customizations were intended for use by the Department of Agriculture. Why? Was the USDA collecting agricultural related transactions for comparison to DHHS data for the study of health effects for diets? Agricultural anomalies? Pesticide related illness and disease? DNA related case studies as a consequence of GMO proliferation? Who ordered the studies? Who will be performing the analyses? With these questions in mind, why is the DOJ involved? As the DOJ already knows, such cases are notoriously difficult to prove. Is the involvement of the DOJ really for another reason? Is the DOJ protecting one of its hallowed industries or clients? Or, is it really cover for something far more sinister? As everyone can see, the questions multiply like rabbits when examined from this point of view. In order to begin to understand the problem, we at first need more data. This article, though highly suggestive, is very weak on detail. For the most part, investigative reporting is dead.

    1. Looks like digitized biology.
      Some say the corona virus is a “frequency” switch for the nanotech delivered into the global population by chemtrails, GMOs, and other vectors. It’s a form of the newly realized “digitized biology”
      Right up Agricultures dark alley ways & byways.
      It’s infrastructure is already massive as it is, w/o this new booster shot of power/information.

  3. there was an advertisement in the 70’s for underwear.. song was “one day you’re gonna get caught with your pants down”.
    www[dot]abc[dot]net[dot]au/news/2020-03-12/nsw-minister-gareth-ward-found-naked-disorientated-by-police/12050738
    “New South Wales [Australia] Families, Communities and Disability Services Minister Gareth Ward had to be escorted home by police last night after being found naked outside his Potts Point apartment in Sydney’s inner east.
    Key points:
    The minister said he had been under general anaesthetic after a hospital procedure [which insist a responsible person picks you up from hospital and stays with you for the first night – it’s THE LAW]
    Police were called to a Potts Point unit block late on Wednesday night
    No further police action is expected

    Police said they were called to the unit around 11:30pm in response to a call that a naked man was trying to get into an apartment that wasn’t his own.”
    mind you my brother, now deceased, was caught similarly outside his unit… then again, he lived 60M from some major cell phone tower.

    1. The Druidic RUNIS software for brains can be used, to refurbish any government, because it bypasses political thinking.

      Academia, that implants “isms” into brains, is at a loss, against original trias politica, defined from natural principles.

      Religious dogmas will have to stand down, when confronted with source of origin, in the sundial, from where RUNIS is developed.

      RUNIS-antivirus is tool for reprogramming academia.

    2. Ha. Nice catch. Have had similar personal experience after surgery. The jurisdiction of my outpatient procedure required by law that an adult sign off before release from the surgery and to be responsible for and supervise me for the following 24 hours. Fortunately I had a trusted family member with me and not a medically certified stranger appointed by the surgeon who I would have paid $300 for the service. I am guessing his trusted party was not so trustworthy? Wonder why.

  4. And these people are complaining about spying and interfering in the USA presidential elections. And Huawei being a front for the Chinese government well I am shocked shocked but then so are Google, Microsoft beholding to the USA.

    1. Right. Djya hear about Tulsi Gabbard’s lawsuit against Google failing last week? Now Google has a judicially declared right to do whatever it wants with regards to any election and/or public policy debate with impunity. It is now officially a publisher with all those private legal protections as well as a platform with all of those public legal protections – and none of the legal liabilities of either.

      Hm. Legal liability immunity. Where does that phrase ring a bell from? Oh yeh. Pharmaceutical companies with their cash cow, vaccines and their vaccine legal liability immunity since 1986. And now that Google is a pharmaceutical company as well, I wonder where this narrative takes us.

  5. I’m sorry, but does the name Michael Chertoff ring a bell? Does anyone really think Edwards and his cohort believed they were doing anything wrong? How could he have possibly been guilty of a crime when theft and graft are constantly practiced in the symphony of politics for profit? Or, is it the method he employed they found reprehensible? Please consider, these questions are hyperbolic. No matter where you look in the former Obama administration you see a pattern of criminality that would make the Dulles’ brothers and J Edgar Hoover blush. But, these Obama shysters still get away with it, just as did those who profited from their associations with the Bush administrations. (Remember, there were 5 of those. Yes, I do consider Reagan’s two terms as Bush terms.) With respect to the software itself I’m withholding further comment until I’ve thought it through some more.

    1. Chertoff, is not complete without his tail & horns.

      Yes, there are criminal syndicates running amok
      in the higher echelons of government.

      That’s where the big bucks thefts occur
      w/o fear of prosecution.

      Where, crime that pays
      is crime that stays.

  6. In my opinion, this sounds more like a ‘hatchet job’. Rather than a high-risk theft/resale of software, this feels like a plausible deniability ‘removal’ of someone. In this day and age, I have no idea whether the removers or the removed one were good/bad guys…

    1. There used to be a standard when reporting on an event to include the what, when, how, why and who facts. Now the principle has to be applied to the article itself which most often lacks the facts to answer the questions. Throw in the “national security” clause and FASAB56, it is a wonder that one can even come up with a high octane speculation.
      Obviously an informed citizenry, the basis of self-rule, has switched from a do it my self to a “we’re gonna do it for you they way we want whether you like it or not” rule. As on all plantations the owners pick the crew and the slaves, plus what goods and services will be included in the enterprise. And if you care not for the plantation life and escape to tell of the events, your ability to survive is severely slim to none. Your only hope is to sing and pray like they did in President Lincoln’s day.
