Office of Net Assessment (ONA)
The Office of Net Assessment ONA was established in 1973 by President Richard Nixon to serve as the Pentagon's “internal think tank” that looks 20 to 30 years into the military's future.
The ONA’s first director was foreign policy strategist Andrew Marshall whose US national security career began in 1949, correctly anticipated the fall of the Soviet Union, and whose legendary feats of analysis earned him the title of being “The Pentagon’s Yoda”—and who, in 2004, struck back “with a vengeance” stopping the “Deep State’s” mass invasion plan in its tracks by his secretly publishing (and leaking only to the Guardian News Service, in London) an absolutely devastating report warning that “by 2020, nuclear conflict, mega-droughts, famine and widespread rioting will erupt across the world”.
In May 2015, Obama appointed James H. Baker (DOD) to replace Andrew Marshall as coordinator. Marshall held the position for 41 years, since its inception.
President Obama’s Secretary of Defense Ash Carter paid Stefan Halper $282,000. Halper receiving an additional $129,000 from the ONA in 2017, thus making Halper's total bill in the Trump-Russis collusion conspiracy and Deep state coup to remove the democratically elected president $411,000.
In July 2016, FBI Director James Comey abruptly ended the criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s crimes by allowing her to walk free, with Halper then inserting himself close to various Trump campaign associates, most importantly being Carter Page and George Papadopoulos, both of whom Halper paid thousands of dollars to lure them to London.Once Halper ensnared Papadopoulos into the coup plot to destroy Trump he placed Papadopoulos in a London bar next to Australia’s High Commissioner to the United Kingdom and Clinton Foundation donor, Alexander Downer. Papadopolous related to FBI informant Alexander Downer what he had been told by FBI informant Prof. Joseph Mifsud.
“Within hours of opening an investigation into the Trump campaign’s ties to Russia in the summer of 2016, the FBI dispatched a pair of agents [ Strzok and one other] to London on a mission so secretive that all but a handful of officials were kept in the dark. Their assignment, which has not been previously reported, was to meet the Australian ambassador."In August 2016 ONA came under attack for wasting money on "research projects." Adam Lovinger was working in the ONA as a strategist. His position required a top-level security clearance. Lovinger had grown increasingly concerned over the ONA’s use of outside contractors, due in part to the “problem of cronyism” and a growing “revolving door policy." Lovinger wrote an October 2016 email to ONA’s new director, James H. Baker (DOD) who had recently been appointed by Obama’s Defense Secretary. From Lovinger’s October 2016 email:
“the moral hazard associated with the Washington Headquarters Services contracting with Stefan Halper.”Halper
"was being used by Net Assessment to go out essentially and engage with foreign government officials. As a contractor that’s totally illegal.”Halper had been awarded $1.06 million in contracts through five payments beginning in 2012. In January 2017 Lovinger was invited by General Michael Flynn to serve as a Senior Director on the White House Security Council, along with Ezra Cohen-Watnick. On that same day, James H. Baker (DOD) filed four separate charges against Lovinger. Two days before the new administration was to take office Lovinger received a letter from Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter citing “Lovinger’s exceptional performance on collaborative net assessment with the Government of India.” In that same review, James H. Baker (DOD) disagreed, noting, “I do not endorse the characterization set forth in the employee input (that) Adam performed successfully.” Baker ordered an investigation of Lovinger.
