IAAC, ANAB, IAF and NIST Probed For Crony Capitalism, Accreditation Fraud, and Antitrust Violations

Inspiring candidate for U.S. Senate (I-Conn) asks the FTC to investigate an accreditation scam costing taxpayers millions of dollars.

Washington, D.C. (USA), June 2nd, 2017 — The American Board of Accredited Certifications (ABAC) is seeking the assistance of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) to investigate three privately-owned Organizations: the Inter-American Accreditation Cooperation (IAAC), The ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board (ANAB), and International Accreditation Forum (IAF) for allegedly conspiring with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a non-regulatory agency of the United States Department of Commerce.

ABAC said the leadership of ANAB, IAF and IAAC should be investigated by the FTC for allegedly conspiring with NIST by utilizing government power and influence to implement an anti-competitive accreditation scheme designed to defraud U.S. businesses and American taxpayers of at least $2.5 billion during the years 2013 to 2017.

ABAC announced several months ago about its investigation of IAAC, ANAB and IAF for misleading U.S. businesses by falsely claiming official oversight that because it lacked impartiality. Accreditation is meaningless without impartial oversight. Details of the investigation has been released to the pubic at http://aboac.org/iaac-inter-american-accreditation-cooperation/

Daryl Guberman (http://www.darylguberman.com), CEO of G-PMC Group and potential candidate for United States Senate (I-CT) is asking the FTC’s Bureau of Competition to investigate the alleged anti-competitive practices and collusion between IAAC, NIST, ANAB and IAF. The Federal Trade Commission Act and the Clayton Act, both passed by Congress in 1914, give the Commission authority to enforce the antitrust laws. These laws prohibit anti competitive mergers and business practices that work to prevent hard-driving competition, such as monopolistic conduct, attempts to monopolize, and conspiracies in restraint of trade.

According to Guberman, concerns of IAAC’s certification practices have been brought to ABAC’s attention after IAAC’s certification of the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board. The complaint cites the certification issued to ANAB is misleading and bogus because both organizations (IAAC and ANAB) are owned and/or managed by the same individual at the time known as Randy Dougherty. Public records show Dougherty is Vice President of ANAB as well as the Chairman of IAAC and former Chairman of the IAF and as of 2016 it’s treasurer at the time of the certification scheme between the organizations.

Within hours after the American Board of Accredited Certification announced it will seek FTC’s assistance on its investigation, Guberman said ANAB appeared to have removed from its Web site the article indicating IAAC’s certification of ANAB as seen here: http://www.dguberman.com/NIST_IAAC.pdf . The page that hosted the article is now being redirected to the home page. More suspiciously, Randy Dougherty’s name is no longer found on the leadership page of the ANAB website; it appears to have been removed overnight and replaced with the names of several other individuals under the role of Vice President.

Although the article that announced IAAC’s certification of ANAB has disappeared from the ANAB website, a snapshot of the article has been made available at https://postimg.io/image/4xzm9elfx. The snapshot includes a photograph of current IAAC Chairman Randy Dougherty being presented the certificate by Dougherty’s collaborator, and former IAAC Chair Ileana Martinez, who just so happens to be employed by NIST (http://gsi.nist.gov/global/index.cfm/L1-2/L2-2/A-386) which is the government agency Guberman wants investigated for defrauding American taxpayers and Crony capitalism, a term describing an economy in which success in business depends on close relationships between business people and government officials. It may be exhibited by favoritism in the distribution of legal permits, government grants, special tax breaks, or other forms of state interventionism.

As a NIST employee, Ms. Martinez is responsible for matters on global standards and coordination, and most notable she is involved in accreditation matters for the agency. Randy Dougherty, the Vice President of ANAB and Chairman of IAAC and Ileana Martinez, the prior chair of IAAC and a NIST employee appear to be the two key individuals behind the NIST-IAAC- ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board ANAB & IAF, accreditation scam. Ms Martinez has been replaced by Erik Puskar who is the new ANAB connection, according to Guberman. Numerous calls and emails to Puskar’s office has gone unanswered.

“As a non-regulatory agency of the United States Department of Commerce, NIST has no authority to join with IAAC and ANAB to restrain competition in the accreditation of quality management systems,” said Guberman. He added, “G-PMC Group, ABAC and its affiliates will continue to demand justice and expose any and all organizations and individuals engaged in capital cronyism, anti-competitive business practices, and those directly or indirectly restraining competition by spreading false information about ISO certification and accreditation.”

Guberman turned to face the the camera, and with a stern expression he concluded with a few last words, “As a candidate for U.S. Senate, I pledge to remain steadfast in my commitment to cease all forms of favoritism between government officials and their business cronies in the quality management community. Such collusion is disgustingly UN-American, and I guarantee to all those involved, including their fruitcake cohorts, the corruption ends now.”

Meet The President

Possible Senate Candidate Daryl Guberman Calls Out Dick Blumenthal For ‘Constitutional Crisis’ Hypocrisy

Connecticut CEO Daryl Guberman Seeks President Trump’s Support To Challenge Sen. Blumenthal.

Washington, DC (USA), May 18th, 2017 — While President Trump and Senator Blumenthal (D-Conn) continue to throw haymakers at each other over Tuesday’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey, a senate hopeful and potential challenger to Blumenthal, Daryl Guberman (http://www.DarylGuberman.com) responded this morning to the Senator’s controversial response by calling Blumenthal a hypocrite.

Yesterday, Trump said Blumenthal ‘cried like a baby’ in an interview the Senator had with CNN in which Blumenthal said the president’s decision to fire Comey was based on a ‘pretense that is laughable’ and had created a looming ‘constitutional crisis,’ according to the unpopular Senator. Guberman defended the President’s decision to fire Comey, which frankly was long overdue according to many lawmakers, primarily because of Comey’s flip flopping, and his dumbfounded decision to not investigate Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and the millions of dollars donated to the Clinton Foundation from foreign entities.

“It’s ironic that Mr. Stolen Valor himself is calling the Comey firing a constitutional crisis when he has been challenging the Constitution’s second amendment since elected into office,” said Guberman. He added, “Dick might find the president’s comments laughable, but he was caught on video lying about his Vietnam service, and in my book Stolen Valor is just not forgivable.”

Guberman has long been a critic of Blumenthal for a 2010 speech in which the Senator claimed to have served in Vietnam, and after being questioned on the matter, said he misspoke. The video can be found here: >https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E0h2qKE69Jg. Records show Blumenthal was a member of the Marine Corps Reserves for six years from 1970 to 1976, but he never was deployed abroad.

“Stolen valor and lying about fighting in a horrendous war such as Vietnam which took the life of so many brave Americans is a slap in the face to the men and women that fought and died for our country,” said Guberman. “As far as I’m concerned, an elected official guilty of stolen valor should immediately resign from office because they simply don’t deserve the privilege of serving the American people.”

Guberman, the son of the late Sylvia Guberman, a once well known political advocate for the Democrat Party in Connecticut, said his mother worked tirelessly to help elect Bill Clinton during his presidential run in the early 1990’s. According to Guberman, Bill and Hillary were frequent guests of the Guberman household in Stratford, Connecticut. “As a young adult, I can remember Hillary always studying, she’s very intelligent on social matters, despite her poor judgment on foreign affairs,” he said. “As for Bill (Clinton), my mom saw him as a brilliant speaker, but she later became deeply disappointed in his scandals.”

After Mrs. Guberman’s untimely passing, the Guberman family received a heartfelt letter of condolences from then President Bill Clinton. The letter was recently published online in her memory at http://dguberman.com/Bill_Clinton_Letter_To_Guberman_Family.pdf

In later years, Mrs. Guberman became a registered Republican after struggling with seeing her once beloved Democrat party pushed more to the left. Connecticut itself has become one of the more liberal states in the country. Today, according to the Washington Free Beacon, Sen. Blumenthal and the junior Senator from Connecticut, Chris Murphy (D) are considered among two of the most liberal on Capital Hill.

As one of the most liberal Senators, Blumenthal appears to have taken the leading role to crumble Trump’s presidency, calling him out on his failed initial attempt to replace Obamacare, and his nomination of Neil Gorsuch for Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States to succeed the late Antonin Scalia.

Elected in 2010 to his first term in the Senate, Blumenthal is one of the richest members of Congress with a staggering net worth of $121,299,056. He served in both the Connecticut State House and State Senate, and was Connecticut’s Attorney General from 1991-2010.

Guberman’s campaign manager Donald LaBelle said, “Blumenthal’s wealth is not the issue, his character and lack of integrity is the issue.” LaBelle concluded, “Hard working families, small business owners, Veterans, and seniors appear to be the forgotten class in Connecticut, and they deserve more jobs and business opportunities, lower taxes, better education, affordable healthcare, and their freedoms protected from overreaching, out of touch liberals such as Blumenthal.”

Guberman said, “It’s ironic the mainstream media is making a big deal about Trump’s comments that Blumenthal cried like a baby, but the same media overlooks the senator’s stolen valor debacle in the midst of American soldiers coming home in body bags from Iraq and Afghanistan.” Guberman said it’s no wonder Trump calls today’s mainstream media ‘fake news.’ “It’s no different with the media in Connecticut, said Guberman. He added, “Connecticut media often ignore stories that don’t fit their liberal agenda, and that’s why the Guberman campaign will be going directly to the hard working people of Connecticut, and connecting with them the old fashion way by knocking on doors, shaking hands, and making personal phone calls.”

Guberman said nothing is more demeaning to veterans and military families than the phenomenon of elected officials falsely claiming military honors they did not earn, or war service they did not perform while our American brothers and sisters have given their life for our country. “You should honor these brave men and women Senator, not steal their valor,” said Guberman.

Guberman, a local actor, former champion bodybuilder, and the CEO of the highly successful G-PMC Group (http://www.g-pmc.com), is a lifetime resident of Stratford. Although relatively unknown in the political arena, if he continues to gain support across the state, and possibly a future endorsement from President Trump, the political landscape in Connecticut could change literally overnight, and perhaps move back to its roots of a more moderate state, which has been the goal of the state’s Independents and Republicans for decades.

Guberman expects to make his decision later this year on whether or not he will run for United States Senate as either an Independent or Republican to unseat Blumenthal.

ALIPAC Calls for a Primary Challenger for Speaker Paul Ryan

Raleigh, NC, USA (October 30, 2015) — Contact: ALIPAC | (866) 703-0864 | WilliamG@alipac.us

Responding to the news that Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI) has been elected as the new Speaker of the House replacing John Boehner, Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is calling for a GOP primary challenger to remove Ryan from office in 2016 in the same way that Eric Cantor lost his seat for supporting amnesty for illegal immigrants.

Republican lawmakers elected Ryan as Speaker despite a massive outcry from their constituents that lit up DC phone lines and social media against Paul Ryan because Ryan supports immigration reform amnesty and actually voted to fund Obama’s illegal, unconstitutional, and unpopular amnesty orders.

Rep. Ryan’s vote to support Obama’s amnesty orders, which 26 states are suing to stop, earned him a position on ALIPAC’s “Cantor List,” which contains the names of Republican lawmakers who are documented as supporting amnesty for illegals as Eric Cantor did. Cantor was defeated in a landslide by challenger Dave Brat despite the fact that Cantor outspent Brat 40 to 1.

“Everywhere you could see on social media and in online forums, conservatives were screaming at the top of their lungs for GOP lawmakers not to nominate another Obama protecting and facilitating, illegal alien amnesty supporting, Chamber of Commerce puppet like Paul Ryan and John Boehner!” said William Gheen, President of ALIPAC. “Paul Ryan needs to be thrown out of office like Eric Cantor! We need a strong GOP challenger who opposes amnesty for illegals and Obama’s unconstitutional amnesty orders to file for office against Paul Ryan. That candidate could then give a voice to all of the Americans who told these lawmakers not to elect Ryan. There is clearly a large degree of national support for a true conservative to run against Paul Ryan in 2016.”

ALIPAC hopes that other grassroots conservative organizations will join the call for a strong and qualified GOP challenger to announce against Paul Ryan and the other constituent betraying lawmakers on The Cantor List (click to view). While some profiles are not yet complete, most of the names on the Cantor List have their own “amnesty support profile” which quickly provides information and sources to voters and campaigns alike proving the lawmaker’s support for amnesty.

Polling data shows that a super majority of GOP voters oppose immigration reform amnesty for illegals, despite the fact that pro amnesty groups like Fox News and the Associated Press have paid for designer polls that fictitiously claim most Americans favor amnesty instead. The true polling data is reflected in Donald Trump’s meteoric rise to his double digit first place position in the GOP Presidential primary by bringing attention to illegal alien crimes and promising to deport all illegal immigrants as current US laws ratified by Congress require.

“Any GOP primary challenger in America can quickly and inexpensively take the lead against amnesty supporting RINOs like Boehner, Cantor, McCarthy, Chaffetz, and Paul Ryan by promising to deport all illegals just like Donald Trump!” said William Gheen. “The true polling data and these astounding elections examples show that Americans are fighting mad about illegal immigration and immigration reform amnesty supporting members of Congress. We are going to do all in our power to see more corrupt DC politicians like Paul Ryan thrown out of office in 2016.”

The US Chamber of Commerce has vowed to deploy more than 100 million dollars to defeat members of Congress in 2016 who have stood up against and stopped amnesty legislation such as Marco Rubio’s S. 744. Many of the Chamber’s targets are found on ALIPAC’s endorsement list. (click to view)

VIVIER MORTGAGES LIMITED “VML” AND LUIGI WEWEGE MEDIA STATEMENT

DUBLIN, IRELAND, February 24, 2015 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — Over the past few months VML was contacted by Mr Conor Ryan and other reporters working on a programme for RTE, the Irish broadcaster.

It soon became clear that a number of untrue and defamatory allegations – about VML and persons formerly or currently connected with it – would be made in the programme and had already been made to third parties. After VML clearly outlined the correct position to RTE, its lawyers confirmed that the programme and/or its reporting would be “fair and balanced”, “fair, impartial and objective”, “fair to all interests concerned”, “fair and accurate”, “broadcast in good faith” and contain “nothing misleading, unsavoury or malicious” nor any “distortions or untruths”. VML was further assured by RTE’s lawyers that it “adheres to high standards of journalistic ethics” and follows “proper journalistic standards”.

Unfortunately, this did not happen: despite withdrawing many of the untrue and defamatory allegations, when broadcasting its programme on 5th February, RTE retained a number of others.

Accordingly, on 13th February 2015, following the advice of Senior and Junior Counsel, VML issued proceedings against RTE and Mr Ryan. The proceedings are for defamation, procuring a breach of confidence, malicious falsehood and other wrongs, for which aggravated and exemplary damages are sought. It is expected that other parties will issue similar proceedings in the English High Court.

The true position, as previously stated to but ignored by RTE, is as follows:
• In 2004, VML effectively came under the control of the British Government.
• In 2011, VML was sold by the British Government to an English private company.
• In 2014, VML was sold by that English company to its present owner.
• The beneficial owners of VML’s shares and debt are those appearing on the public register.
• VML’s current owner and directors are entirely distinct from the previous owners and directors.

Represented by Monterey law firm Hudson Martin Ferrante Street Witten & June, PC, Echo was granted the rare TRO on June 18, 2014, against a former employee who has been accused of stealing valuable trade secrets and pursuing the company’s existing customers

Monterey, CA, June 27, 2014 – Under what circumstances may a former employee solicit his former employer’s customers? And can non-solicitation agreements ever be enforceable?

Those questions came closer to being answered in California — a state that rarely permits any action which is seen to inhibit or reduce competition — when a Santa Cruz superior court granted a temporary restraining order against a former employee of Echo Holdings LLC.

Represented by Monterey law firm Hudson Martin Ferrante Street Witten & June, PC, Echo was granted the rare TRO on June 18, 2014, against a former employee who has been accused of stealing valuable trade secrets and pursuing the company’s existing customers. Firm partner Amy June argued the case in one of the few states in which non-compete agreements are considered void as against public policy.

The state’s Business and Professions Code section 16600 provides that “Except as provided in this chapter, every contract by which anyone is restrained from engaging in a lawful profession, trade, or business of any kind is to that extent void.” Exceptions to this rule are limited, and focus on the sale of a business or dissolution of a partnership. However, through adoption the Uniform Trade Secrets Act, California also makes it illegal for employees to misappropriate trade secrets from a former employer and to use those trade secrets to solicit customers of the former employer.

Hudson Martin Ferrante Street Witten & June, PC, has long represented One Stop Logistics, Inc., which acquired Echo in May of 2014. June, who argued the matter before Presiding Judge Paul Marigonda, agreed that the ruling was appropriate and necessary to protect the company’s interests in the area.

The decision comes on the heels of May’s ruling by Judge James Robertson of the San Francisco Superior Court in the case of Guardsmark v. Bowman.

In that case, Guardsmark, a company that provides security services, won a rare non-compete order against a former manager who had signed an agreement stating that he would refrain from misusing Guardsmark’s confidential information, but who secretly formed a competing security services company, Teton Security Services, Inc., and won a contract to work with a former Guardsmark client.

Judge Robertson ordered a permanent injunction prohibiting Bowman and Teton from contacting or soliciting any of Guardsmark’s current customers in San Francisco and from taking any action to induce any of Guardsmark’s current customers in San Francisco to discontinue service with Guardsmark.

Finding Success in A Growing Industry: Monterey, California Lawyers Meeting The Legal Needs Of CannaBusinesses

Monterey, California law firm L+G, LLP Attorneys at Law and their top CannaBusiness lawyer Gavin Kogan are leading the way in California by providing clients

Monterey, CA, May 31, 2014 – Monterey, California law firm L+G, LLP Attorneys at Law and their top CannaBusiness lawyer Gavin Kogan are leading the way in California by providing clients with the experienced legal assistance they require to provide their customers with needed medical cannabis while building a profitable, legally sound cannabusiness.

Firm Founder and Partner Jeff Gilles believes “It is imperative that each jurisdiction begin a planning process that embraces the fact that our local citizens should be able to purchase Cannabis locally for medicinal purposes rather that driving to another jurisdiction to fill a prescription. We are losing tax revenue, increasing Green House Gas Emissions attributable to unnecessary miles, and increasing the burden on patients suffering from MLS, Cancer and other illnesses where Cannabis has successfully been used to help those patients.”

Much of their interest has stemmed from the lack of available dispensaries in Monterey and San Benito Counties. “There are three kinds of counties, those that ban it outright, those that regulate it, and the most malicious has nothing on the books,” Kogan said in a Monterey County Weekly cover story by Mary Duan on May 29, 2014. “Well, maybe ‘malicious’ is too strong. But because of it, people don’t know what to do. If the county banned it, it would be easy, we could not run operations there.” L+G, LLP Attorneys at Law believes in changing perceptions and changing laws. They have a proven track record at achieving political and governmental advocacy for their clients and the fledgling and growing CannaBusiness industry is going to need careful navigation to achieve its goals.

L+G, LLP Attorneys at Law is leading the way in California on Cannabis Dispensary Law and the coming legalization of recreational marijuana. The firm advises and represents cannabusinesses handling marijuana as well as cannabusinesses that not directly handling marijuana, also known as “ancillary” cannabusinesses. They support their clients with the legal knowledge they will need to effectively structure and operate a cannabusiness.

Clients confidently rely on Attorney Gavin.Kogan to help them identify and manage the legal issues that are relevant to a cannabusiness now, during prohibition. and in the future after legalization. This means that Mr. Kogan holds a command of the law, not only as it exists today, but also with respect to how it may evolve. This professionally developed legal judgment enables Mr. Kogan to critically assess both state and federal legal developments.

As an active participant in ARCView and in the cannabusiness community in general, Mr. Kogan appreciates the need to provide collaborative legal representation in this area of practice. He knows that cannabusiness owners want attorneys they can work with on an individual level in order to develop long-term legal business strategies tailored specifically to their own unique interests.

The bottom line of cannabusiness is the same as any business – the constant striving to have a sound, productive firm. But in order to be successful, cannabusinesses must be able to protect their product from seizure by law enforcement and avoid operation shutdowns. Working with a strong law firm who has the experience to minimize loss and disruptions is tantamount. Gavin Kogan and L+G, LLP Attorneys at Law are dedicated to preparing cannabusinesses for success.

About L+G, LLP – Attorneys as Law:
L+G, LLP is California’s premier law firm with offices in three counties including Santa Cruz, San Benito, and Monterey Counties. The company is a full service firm with a highly diversified practice. Jeff Gilles, Managing Partner, started his legal career in the 1970’s.

Surprised by Congressman Joe Barton (R-TX) (202-225-2002) announcement last Friday in the Dallas Morning news that he now supports a path to legalization, through a new guest worker program that would remove current penalties of law for millions of illegal immigration, ALIPAC is dropping the national organization’s standing endorsement of his campaign and adding him to the list of GOP lawmakers that support amnesty for illegal immigrants instead.

Changing America’s existing immigration laws which are designed to deter illegal immigration in order to accommodate tens of millions of illegal immigrants is a form of amnesty. Furthermore, illegal immigrants that are accommodated will one day vote against any candidate that supports borders and equitable laws in America!

“Rep. Joe Barton is playing the Republican trickster game where he says he wants to give illegal aliens a form of legal status but not citizenship and voting rights,” said William Gheen President of ALIPAC. “You do not have to be a legal scholar or a lawyer to know the courts will quickly strike down any attempt of Congress to create a second class version of citizenship. Joe Barton’s illegal immigrants would eventually be given voting rights by the courts thus destroying any future hopes for border or immigration law enforcement. His promises of border security are bitter lies that will never come to fruition if the amnesty portion of his expected bill ever becomes law!”

Many Republican lawmakers have recently been added to the ‘GOP Traitor’ list due to their efforts to help Barack Obama change existing laws to accommodate tens of millions of illegal immigrants with a form of amnesty called ‘immigration reform’. GOP lawmakers refuse to use the word amnesty to describe their actions because they are quite aware that more than 80% of Republican voters reject amnesty because they know such actions will only lead to more illegal immigration in the future.

In 1987, Congress passed the Simpson-Mazzolie Act which granted amnesty for approximately 3 million illegal aliens. Almost all of the enforcement promises of the bill were never adequately implemented. This resulted in the current 12-20 million illegal immigrants in America.

“Using the lessons learned and mathematics established by the 1987 amnesty for illegals, we can estimate that any new form of amnesty, legalization, guest worker visa, etc… will result in more than 40 million new illegal immigrants entering America in the next two decades!” said William Gheen.

ALIPAC has dropped all support for Representative Joe Barton which had been originally based on his high rankings and grades with NumbersUSA. ALIPAC is now seeking another candidate to run replace Joe Barton who has betrayed a majority of his constituents by supporting the interests of the costly and deadly illegal immigrant invasion of America over American taxpayers.
