1973 William Hamilton founds a non-profit organization called
the Institute for Law and Social Research to develop case management
software for law enforcement office automation.
Funded by grants and
contracts from the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration (LEAA), the
Institute developed a program it called "PROMIS", an acronym for
Prosecutors' Management Information System, for use in
law enforcement record
keeping and case-monitoring activities.
PROMIS software is originally
written in COBOL for use on mainframe computers.
A later version is
developed to run on 16 bit mini-computers such as the DEC PDP-11.
primary users of this early version of the software were the United States
Attorneys Office of the District of Columbia, state and local

Lawrence McWhorter, director of the Executive Office for US
Attorneys, "We're out to get Inslaw."
C. Madison "Brick" Brewer at one
time worked for Inslaw, but was allowed to resign when Hamilton found his
performance inadequate, according to court documents.
Brewer was then
hired by the DoJ specifically to oversee the contract of his former
Brewer is aided in his new DoJ job by Peter Videnieks.
Videnieks was fresh from the Customs Service, where he oversaw contracts
between that agency and Hadron, Inc., an incorporation controlled by Ed Meese
and Earl Brian.
A contract dispute evolves over the next few years over
ownership of the code.
Later Judge Bason finds
the DoJ, "unlawfully,
intentionally and willfully" tried to convert the INSLAW Chapter 11
reorganization case to a Chapter 7 liquidation "without justification and by
improper means." The DoJ "took, converted, stole, INSLAW enhanced PROMIS by
trickery, fraud, and deceit."
March 1982 Inslaw
enters into a $9.6 million contract with the Justice Department to install the
public domain version
of PROMIS in 20 US Attorney's offices as a pilot program.
August 11, 1982 DoJ lawyer reply for clarification: "To the
extent that any other enhancements (beyond the
public domain PROMIS)
were privately funded by Inslaw and not specified to be delivered to the
Department of Justice under any contract or other
may assert whatever
rights it may have."
Inslaw converted the 16-bit version of PROMIS
to a 32-bit architecture running on a DEC VAX minicomputer.
May 6, 1983 Dr. Ben Orr leaves the DoJ with a computer tape
containing PROMIS tucked under his arm. PROMIS is then given or sold at a
profit to Israel and as many as 80 other countries by Dr. Earl W. Brian, a man
with close personal and business ties to then-President Ronald Reagan and
then-Presidential counsel Edwin Meese.
"The importance of PROMIS is
that it is not only capable of interfacing with a wide variety of data bases in
different computer languages and then integrating the data, but it has also
been modified for intelligence purposes. It has then been sold throughout the
world by spy agencies through third parties to clients such as banks and
investment houses envious of its unique capabilities. One key modification by
agencies such as the CIA and

1981 Robert Philip Hanssen is transferred to FBI headquarters
in Washington, DC.
Hansen oversees all the FBI activities related to
wiretapping and electronic surveillance and becomes known in the Bureau as an
expert on computers.
1983 Valery Martynov and
Sergei Motorin, KGB spies working out of the Soviet Embassy in Washington, are
recruited by the FBI.
David Wise reported complacent cynicism of the
Russian spies who were given a list
of secrets to steal.
Afraid they would get kicked out if they got
caught they didn't try spying very hard as they "loved the city, with its
comfortable, consumer-friendly lifestyle."
Martynov and Motorin are
summoned back to Moscow and shot.
1987 Hanssen is
given the task of making a study of all penetrations of the FBI in order to
find who betrayed Martynov and Motorin.
Hanssen's brother-in-law, Mark Wauck, an FBI employee, recommended to the
Bureau that Hanssen be investigated for espionage.
February 18, 2001 Robert Philip Hanssen, active in
Opus Dei, has been tasked with
helping allies with the installation and use of their versions of the PROMIS
It is alleged that Robert Philip Hanssen sold high-tech
PROMIS software to the Russian KGB for $1.4 million in cash and diamonds.
Robert Philip Hanssen negotiates a plea bargain that enabled him to
escape the death penalty, is
sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, and is required
to submit to a gag

MITRE and Ptech
"The aviation agency is installing a computer
system that controllers can use to determine whether aeroplanes can depart from
established traffic lanes and fly long distances, and whether they will
conflict with other aeroplanes by doing so." - New York Times of June 7,
2001 Monte R. Belger*, Acting Deputy of the
FAA from 1997-2002, was
the key decision maker
responsible for upgrading the FAA computerized air traffic
control system with MITRE and Ptech.
Documents and reports from the
MITRE Center for Advanced Aviation System Development in McLean, Virginia, show
that Ptech was working with MITRE on FAA computer systems.
left the FAA, Monte R. Belger became the "Vice President, Government
Connection" of a small Israeli run incorporation based in the Fort Lauderdale
area called US Aviation Technology.
US Aviation Technology was founded
by Ehud "Udi" Mendelson*, who described himself as "a captain in the
prestigious Army Intelligence Unit of the Israel Defense Force."
Israel Venture Capital Research Center website specifically name Monte Belger
of Centreville, Virginia, as a Vice President and Government Connection of US

ground pilot all of the data and the visuals that the pilot in the aircraft
"We put the ground 'pilot' in the cockpit." - Ehud Mendelson
"Ptech was with MITRE Corporation in the basement of the FAA for two
years prior to 911. Their specific job is to look at interoperability issues
the FAA had with NORAD and
the Air Force in the case of an emergency.
If anyone was
in a position
to know that the FAA -
that there was a window
of opportunity or to insert software or to change anything - it would have
been Ptech along with MITRE.
Ptech software is utilized at the highest
levels of almost every government and military and defense organization in this
country including the Secret Service, the
DoD, the House of
Representatives, the Treasury
Department, the IRS, the US Navy, the US Air Force, and, last but not
least, the Federal Aviation Administration." - Indira Singh
James Rodney Schlesinger was
United States Secretary of Defense from 1973 to
1975 under presidents
Richard Nixon and

Rodney Schlesinger* was Chairman of Board of directors of MITRE.
MITRE Corporation manages Federally Funded Research and Development Centers
(FFRDCs) supporting the DoD, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the
Internal Revenue Service (IRS), and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
On March 5, 2009, MITRE was awarded one of two FFRDCs supporting the
Department of Homeland Security as the operator of the Systems Engineering and
Development Institute (SEDI).
Ptech's roster of clients included
several governmental agencies, including the United States Armed Forces,
NATO, Congress, the Department
of Energy, the Department of Justice, the Federal Bureau of Investigation,
Customs, the FAA, the IRS, the
Secret Service, and
the White House.
"I found it hard to believe that the most sensitive government and
military computers would run enterprise software from a Lebanese-owned start-up
incorporation called Ptech from Quincy, Mass. I soon discovered that the real
key person involved in the development of the incorporation was a Zionist
Jewish lawyer named Michael Goff from Worcester, Mass. Michael Goff also worked
for an Israeli-run computer security incorporation called Guardium." -
Ptech had a security clearance to work on sensitive
military projects dating to 1997. On December 5, 2002 a raid by federal
authorities under the auspices of Operation Green Quest was conducted at Ptech

with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that
the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace
unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done
purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish
to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance
occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious
beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the
founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the
Lumière Infinie - a rational
religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no
tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every
individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and
Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing
the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The
Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on
this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their
religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."
This web site
in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the
violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels
desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already
controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global
industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse
of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of
global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation
does not occur at the point of a gun.
American social mores and values
have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international
cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to
deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional
buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior
corporate media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction
of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to
the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction
and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been
directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that
further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
