Is the CIA Operating a Power Grab Behind the Front of MAXIMUS?

A repost by Claire Best

The CIA is in the news of late. What’s not in the news, and should be, is Maximus. And the question is: whether the CIA and Maximus are one and the same:

Maximus Inc is a Government Services Provider operating in the US, UK, Canada, Saudi Arabia, Australia, Israel. It primarily started out with Medicaid contracts tying it to Catholic Charities who provide healthcare and children’s services. From there it has expanded into pretty much any Government involved service that would make it easy to collect data. Data which could be used to make public services more efficient is also data that can be traded, sold, used for blackmail, elections and global control. Data can be leaked by the millions into the wrong hands. Maximus recently admitted to a data leak of information on 11 million people (roughly the individual populations for Cuba, Sweden, the Dominican Republic, South Sudan or Jordan)

The following letter from Maximus to the Attorney General of New Hampshire provides a little insight:

“On or about August 13, 2023, Maximus’ ongoing investigation revealed that the copied files may have contained some or all of the following types of personal information of at least 6,376 known New Hampshire residents: The specific information impacted differed by individual depending on the government project at issue among other factors. Although the investigation determined the incident did not affect Maximus systems directly beyond Maximus’ MOVEit Transfer environment, Maximus continues to enhance its cybersecurity posture to safeguard against ever evolving cyber threats, building on its written information security program.

Maximus made the above data breach seem like not so serious of a matter. But that’s not quite true when you consider quite how wide reaching Maximus’ tentacles go and quite how compromised state officials are in examining this with any real depth:

Maximus Inc was started in 1975 by a DARPA Vietnam vet — David Mastran — just 4 years after a New York Times journalist obtained the “Pentagon Papers” — 7000 pages of documents “leaked” from the Department of Defense telling a very different story of the Vietnam war than had been presented by the Government.The same year that Maximus was founded, the “Senate Church Committee” was formed — a committee that would reveal the CIA’s clandestine human experiments, otherwise known as MK Ultra.

DARPA is tied to JASON (July, August, September, October, November) and a secret group of scientists.

The same year that Maximus was founded, the “Senate Church Committee” was formed — a committee that would reveal the CIA’s clandestine human experiments, otherwise known as MK Ultra.

The CIA operated its MK Ultra experiments behind dozens of front organizations from educational facilities to hospitals, prisons, to non-profits. Individually many of these had no idea that the CIA was their employer.

The CIA is unlikely to just shut things down once one of its clandestine activities get exposed. It is more likely to go underground and continue behind a different facade.

All indications are that the CIA’s current facade is Maximus Inc which, in September 2023, hired a new general counsel- John Martinez.

John Martinez’ background is in the CIA as well as other areas of intelligence and defense:

“Mr. Martinez was Raytheon’s Chief Cybersecurity and Privacy Counsel and also served as Senior Counsel for IIS’ Cybersecurity and Special Missions business. Mr. Martinez also served as Senior Counsel to a variety of IIS Mission Areas, such as Global Intelligence Systems, Mission Support and Modernization, and Navigation and Environmental Solutions. Before joining Raytheon in 2011, Mr. Martinez was the Deputy General Counsel for Intelligence at the Office of the Director of National Intelligence and an Associate General Counsel at the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) where he was Chief of the Director’s Review Group (DRG), the primary CIA focal point for Department of Justice and Congressional investigations into rendition, detention and interrogation matters. Mr. Martinez also served as Chief of the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center High-value Detainee Prosecution Taskforce and an operational lawyer in the Counterterrorism Center. Earlier in his career, Mr. Martinez was an Assistant District Attorney in Manhattan.”

The CIA just awarded a secret multibillion dollar cloud based contract to: Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Google, Oracle and IBM — the announcement includes reference to NOAA and thus implicates Maximus.

The contract and accompanying procurement documents have not been released to the public. “

Google is tied to Stanford (David Mastran of Maximus’ alma mater and scene of the Stanford Prison Experiment), the CIA and data collecting. It has also been sued for anti-trust. Apple was mentioned in the lawsuit. SIRI is tied to Apple and to Stanford.

“Siri is a spin-off from a project developed by the SRI International Artificial Intelligence Center.”

IBM is tied to Maximus Board Chief Bruce Caswell and Board Member Anne Altman who was general manager of IBM’s U.S federal government and industries. David V Mastran also had a company in the 80s that was making computers for IBM.

In October 2021, Maximus was awarded a $323 million contract from the SEC.

“We announced today that we have been awarded a contract from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) worth $323 million. Under the 10-year contract, we will expand our existing Enterprise EDGAR (Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval) System Support Services to encompass the entire EDGAR system.

Gary Gensler who heads the SEC allegedly met several times with Sam Bankman-Fried of FTX who, according to trial records, received guidance on which election candidates to invest in from his mother who co-founded “Mind The Gap”. Mind The Gap hired Eric Schmidt (of Google)’s company “Civis Analytics” — a data gathering company.

Is Civis Analytics connected to Maximus? Maybe. The US Citizenship & Immigration Resources Center is a partner Maximus’s AI and Advanced Analytics. So are the US Army and the CDC inter alia:

New York Prosecutors decided to drop charges against Sam Bankman-Fried for election campaign fraud.

John Martinez of Maximus started out as an Assistant District Attorney in Manhattan before his work for the CIA, Department of Defense and Maximus. There hasn’t been a connection made thus far between Maximus and FTX and election campaign fraud but that doesn’t mean to say there isn’t one given the number of pies Maximus has its hands in, especially the SEC and the SEC Chief’s connection to Sam Bankman-Fried.

“As part of its no-bid contract with the state, a large private firm has proposed that New Hampshire ask for a special waiver enabling it to slash spending through a “dramatic” restructuring of its Medicaid program. “

On the board of Maximus is Kathleen Kerr. Prior to joining Maximus, her bio for the company states that she worked in New Hampshire for its Department of Health and Human Services/DCYF for 12 years. Her bio omits the fact that she worked for Policy Studies in New Hampshire as well which is exposed in the “Pentagon Papers” of 1971 tied to the Vietnam war and David Mastran, the DARPA Vietnam vet who founded Maximus. Policy Studies is also tied to Maximus. Kathleen Kerr had to have been involved in New Hampshire’s decision to give a no bid contract to Maximus. She was rewarded with a job at Maximus with her name now listed on multiple companies belonging to the behemoth.

“She also served for 12 years with the State of New Hampshire, Department of Health and Human Services, first as Chief Legal Counsel for the Division of Child Support Services and later as the Director of the Office of Program Support, where she was also Director of the state’s Title IV-D program.

While Kathleen Kerr was Chief Legal Counsel for the Division of Child Support Services (DCYF) in New Hampshire, the State knowingly covered up extreme child sex abuse at the Sununu Youth Development Center named after John Sununu who was Governor of New Hampshire and White House Chief of Staff for George Bush Senior. Maximus registered in New Hampshire in 1992 while Bush was in office. John Sununu is registered with Boston Scientific at the Concord Building as of 1997. The same address, 10 Ferry Street, Concord, New Hampshire, houses the CIA’s “Dataminr”, the Department of Defense Contractor “Dyncorp”, the Children’s Trust Fund (tracking children), Quest Diagnostics, International Rescue Committee (tied to the UN) and Virtus LLC “Protecting God’s Children” founded by former Monsignor Edward Arsenault who was the “compliance” officer for the Diocese of Manchester but whose principal business was expanding the business of Catholic Medical Center and Catholic Risk Retention Management. These were tied to Medicaid, DHHS and DCYF(and thus Maximus’ interests). Maximus has contracts with Catholic Charities and is a generous donor to Catholic Charities.

Records of David Mastran’s campaign donations to George Ptaki, Rudy Giuliani and others in New York and elsewhere suggest that campaign contributions to the powers that be in New Hampshire most likely greased the wheels there as well. Sam Bankman-Fried was buying his way in via campaign donations to candidates of both parties. It looks like that is what David Mastran was doing too. But for himself or for the Department of Defense or CIA or?

Nixon Peabody law firm (founded in 1999 in Boston, Massachusetts and Manchester, New Hampshire) — whose partners included David Vicinanzo: a Clinton appointee federal prosecutor who’d also worked in the NH AG’s office, and Gordon J.

He drafted the appeal for the defendant on Tessier v Rockerfeller.

Gordon MacDonald also represented the Diocese of Manchester, settling dozens of claims against it for alleged child abuse, regardless of the validity of the cases. The Diocese of Manchester was not just the Church but everything that falls under its umbrella from schools to nursing homes to clinics, hospitals and shelters. His law firm, Nixon Peabody, replaced another law firm who’d had the business for years. Jeanne Shaheen was Governor of New Hampshire at the time. He seems to be the son of Gordon F.J. MacDonald who attended Harvard,MIT and Dartmouth (like Gordon MacDonald) who was tied to JASON, DARPA and the CIA.

John Stephen left office and David Vicinanzo donated $2000 to John Stephen’s political campaign in 2007. Today, Stephen has an office down the block from Nixon Peabody in Manchester, New Hampshire. Nixon Peabody’s business has ballooned in the healthcare business. Purdue pharma being one of its clients.

“During his management consulting career, John has led efforts in numerous states to transform various aspects of Health and Human Services to provide better quality and access for beneficiaries. John recently led the TSG team in reviewing and analyzing the entire operations of the Arkansas Department of Human Services (DHS), Medicaid, Long Term Care, Behavioral Health, and Developmental Disabilities programs. After delivering its Assessment Report and Recommendations to a Legislative Task Force, John and the TSG team developed an implementation plan for the legislature to effectively monitor several Medicaid transformation projects in that state.”

John Stephen appears to be doing Maximus’ bidding to Maine:

Gordon MacDonald had to recuse himself from signing a letter with 39 Attorneys General about Big Pharma’s price fixing due to his representation of Purdue. He’d defended the company against the State of New Hampshire right before he himself became Attorney General — managing to block an audit of internal documents.

Edward Arsenault (who worked with Gordon MacDonald from the inside of the Diocese) went to jail for defrauding the Diocese of Manchester, a dead priest’s estate and the Catholic Medical Center where he was in charge of increasing profits. He was released when Gordon MacDonald was the Attorney General for New Hampshire. Assistant AG Jane Young shook Arsenault’s handcuffed hands as he took the plea deal in 2014. She is now US Attorney for New Hampshire.

Gordon MacDonald had dismissed child sex abuse at the Sununu Youth Development Center for “Victim negligence” and he argued that police officers with credibility issues should not have their names or records named public. He hired one of these officers for a Grand Jury Criminal Investigation into St. Paul’s School in 2017. The report, despite promises, was never made public. The police officer, James F McLaughlin, has a record of dishonesty dating to the 1980s when he worked with Sylvia Gale of the DCYF to frame Father Gordon MacRae, a priest in the Diocese of Manchester who was sentenced to 67 years in prison for sex crimes which his accuser later admitted he’d been coerced into fabricating — for money. Edward Arsenault had promised to get MacRae legal help under the condition that he sent his files to David Vicinanzo. Vicinanzo never picked up the case but is now representing the victims of child sex abuse at the YDC who were referred to him by his ex partner Gordon MacDonald when he was AG via his client the New Hampshire Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence who are also intertwined with the DCYF who allegedly instructed interns at the YDC to delete files.

If Maximus had never set foot in New Hampshire, would children have suffered in the Youth Detention Center? Would Father Gordon MacRae remain incarcerated? Would St. Paul’s School have been targeted for the Government to infiltrate it and install a “compliance” officer who introduced software to analyse student behavior? Would New Hampshire have been fined $7.9 million for double billing of Medicaid? Would the state not have tried to prevent witnesses from giving testimony about abuse at the YDC? Would there be an opioid crisis?
