Contractor caught exposing himself in Taunton, MA, two days after
Boston Marathon Explosion near Boston
(Jack) Douglas, an attorney and author of the long touted, “Reebok
Rules,” famously filled with
advice on how to make it as a corporate counsel, caught in 'the act,'
told the off-duty officer what he was doing was a family tradition.

of the human body and their support of nudity. But Jack Douglas
revealed something about his real values and operating principles,
there, between Dunkin' Donuts and the Olive Garden, something he
would prefer was not transparent to the world.
When we can
see and understand the actions of those, who otherwise, we would
automatically trust, we are far better able to ensure our trust is

could trust and how much we could extend that trust.

this form of 'security,' knowing about the operating principles of

is exactly what the burgeoning centralization of government and
corporations has worked diligently to suppress.

President and CEO of Green Hills is Dan O'Dowd. Dan owns 97% of the
company with his wife, Amy Chang. O'Dowd, whose life ambition is to
be wealthier than Bill Gates owns other companies, purchased with his
profits. Covert should be Dan's middle name.

likely they would have to return to Hightower for more funding,
diluting his shares. It was then Craig Franklin entered Dan's life.
Franklin, ignoring Dan's marketing, read the code and recommended it
to friends in the industry, saving Dan's equity position. Making
Franklin an offer he could not refuse, Dan hired Franklin on as vice
president of advanced products development in 1986.
The two men
each have much to hide.
In 1998 it
was Franklin who organized the walk-out of critical employees which, part of a carefully orchestrated plan,
allowed O'Dowd to buy out the company from Hightower at a fraction of
its real value. Hightower had been an active participant in the
company, not a passive investor.

variety. Franklin assisted in defrauding Hightower and O'Dowd made
sure Franklin's wife did not receive her marital share of the stock
options issued to Franklin the year before. Their actions callously, and
intentionally, left her disabled, destitute, and struggling to care for
a completely disabled son, who Franklin had adopted.
Craig Franklin, is widely known to engage in bizarre sexual behavior
and to have exposed himself to his adopted daughters. The focus of
his sexual drive is young girls, and his fantasies turn on incest.

must openly confront the fact government contractors and other
multi-national corporations have become a powerful partner in
government. Therefore, the operating principles of the real, flesh
and blood people who determine their corporate strategies and
policies must be transparent to us, the people who supply the money
which has allowed them to ramp up to billion dollar enterprises.

have it in our power to provide the transparency in this sector which
is so desperately needed. The responsibility is ours, each of ours, as
individuals. When we see wrong being done we need to speak out,
informing others as we demand justice be done.
This was true in Nazi Germany. It is true now.
Today, it is obvious just how deep and wide the corruption of our institutions has gone. Read, "Everything Is Rigged: The Biggest Price-Fixing Scandal Ever,"

doubt. It is not just war contractors. From the highest level of banking
down to the seemingly honest faces of the men above, the need for
transparency screams to us like a man dying for want of air, lost in an
ocean of deceit, all undertaken for profit, without a shred of integrity.

much they have hidden, tolerated, and the murders committed in the name

destroy all of us unless we, as individuals step up and take action.

As you read through the affidavits,
declarations, and transcript you will see he could not keep his
mouth shut. Morgan found he had to talk to her about what was going
on several times a day.
Anne Fisher, Craig's former girl friend, sent me emails, documents
she prepared for her attorney, and other material. In addition, we
talked very frequently over a period of at least two years as she
shared her story and observations. These included her still ongoing
relationship with Craig, which she had a hard time ending because he
would not stop calling her.
It was actually Anne who called to tell me about what was going on
when Craig's son, Scott, was arrested for paying a hitman to kill
his wife. It was also Anne who pointed out to me Craig was
dangerous, though Morgan also mentioned he was considering having me
killed in 1999. I did not actually want to think about it.
If you dig into the story you will see Craig and GHS did not stop
going after me and were colluding with a group in attempts to 'get'
me as recently as last year. I did not include this because it
starts to be more like a book than an article, and did not seem as
relevant to the drone issue, which is the point here.
More is coming on other Team members. - Melinda
