Submitted under penalty of the False Claims Act, I am calling on congress to either arrest me for filing a false claim to Congress, which is a felony – or investigate my easily verified and indisputably verifiable claims. It’s simple, if what I’m saying is correct, then Facebook partnered in 2018 to “restore election integrity worldwide,” with the exact same man I built the ShadowNet (social media psychological warfare influence operations) for…
Google shows in 2017 the world population was 7.53 billion people. That makes the odds on Facebook partnering with the exact individual I built the ShadowNet for, which is the exact same capability Robert Mueller indicted the 12 Russian’s for to “restore election integrity worldwide,” 1 in 7.53 billion. Google shows the odds of winning Powerball at 1 in 292,201,338.
Officially submitted under penalty of Section 1001 of title 18 of the United States Code (popularly known as the False Statements Act,) Patrick Bergy filed two official requests to congress this week.
The first request was to investigate an ethics violation Congressman Charlie Crist himself (in email response from his staff) refused to assist in providing information to congress related to his work for Obama’s National Security Advisor in pioneering social media psychological warfare from 2007-2010. John McCain, Paul Manafort and Rick Davis were all partners with Dynology, a small defense contracting company owned by Obama’s National Security Adviser at the time. WFLA News Channel 8, Judge Jeannine Pirro and Sara Carter were also included in the congressional ethics complaint made by Patrick Bergy in his sworn affidavit to the congressional ethics committee.
Here is a video I did showing the documents and discussing the issues for a few minutes.
On May 8th 2019 Mr. Bergy filed a memorandum of Witness Statement and Facts for Official Request for Congressional Actions. Below is a scan of the documents received by Congressman Gus Bilirakis.
Since 2017 I’ve been trying to provide Congressional testimony showing military developed, battlefield tested, social media psychological warfare applications I helped to pioneer – being used against Americans.
The media and several members of congress have been covering this up for over 2 years now because it is an indictment of the Obama administration, as well as “never Trump” republicans like John McCain. Conversely, my complaint, which is fully and indisputably documented and supported, exonerates President Trump; are you starting to get the picture…
I am an Afghanistan Veteran and Patriot that enlisted in 2005 at the age of 39, and turned 40 during basic training. I’m not a partisan political hack, please keep that in my when asking yourself whom to trust here. As you will clearly see in the video, my submission to the congressional ethics committee is enforced by the False Claims Act, and any false claims can result in a felony offense and potential prison.
I’m calling out those “journalists” I have listed in the complaint to explain their HIGHLY UNETHICAL ACTIONS! You can’t besmirch the reputation and honor of an Afghanistan Veteran in the way you have with your lies, and then go on TV saying how you, “Support the Military and their sacrifices.”
Your actions betray the work and sacrifice of actual journalists out there doing the right thing. You’ve certainly destroyed my faith in the 4th estate with the bold-faced lies I was told by those listed in this ethics complaint.
The ethics violation shows how in 2017 the office of congressman Charlie Crist refused to assist me in providing Robert Mueller with indisputable evidence tying the development of the ‘ShadowNet’, which I helped in pioneering for a small, family owned defense contracting company, Dynology. During the time I was developing the ShadowNet, Dynology was owned by Obama’s acting National Security Adviser, Gen. James Jones, Paul Manafort and Rick Davis were our partners, and Dynology was the IT/Website provider for John McCain’s 08′ presidential primary. It gets a bit confusing, I know. Disbelief is a common reaction to my story, which is why it is so important for my information to be investigated.
Per Congressman Crist’s own email, his refusal to help in what is clearly a national security issue was based on it being an actual house ethics violation for anyone on Congressman Crist’s staff to assist.
I did reach out to Robert Mueller’s Office of Special Council and gave my information to a woman on his staff over the phone. I was thanked, and never heard from them again. During the course of the next 12 months, at least 8 people and 2 companies directly connected to the ShadowNet were under indictment by Mueller, and were being accused of doing the exact same thing the ShadowNet was built to do!
I went back to Congressman Crist around January 4th, 2019 and met with his Veteran liaison, whom then took the information from me and promised to provide to the Special Council. I followed up with him about 30 days later in his office, where he again faxed my information to the respective people and the Special Council. I stood there and watched him to it, when called the special council and confirmed receipt personally.
So either Crist lied to me in 2017 when he refused to help, or he violated the Rules of the House Committee on Ethics – BASED ON HIS OWN EMAIL!
Below is a series of emails, and video and the text of my complaint against the following individuals.
Congressman Charlie Crist
Gersham (Charlie Crist Veteran Liaison) Mark Douglas (WFLA)
Congressman Gus Bilirakis
Elizabeth Hittos (Gus Bilirakis Chief of Staff)
Congressman Devin Nunes
Congressman Adam Schiff
Judge Jeannine Pirro (TV Personality)
Sara Carter (“journalist?”)
The following video was made to provide evidence of the actual filing and what it contained. Most government sites provide a generic email showing it was received, but without showing the content of your claim.
The following was copied and pasted directly from the official complaint I submitted under penalty of law.
Concise Statement of Facts: (As well as the source of the information, in the event that the person submitting the information does not have first-hand knowledge of the facts.)*
On or around August, 2017 I filed a formal request at the
office of Charlie Crist in St. Petersburg, FL. My request was to provide
relevant and verifiable information, both classified and unclassified, to the
office of Robert Mueller and the congressional intelligence committee.
Specifically, I had asked they also inform Adam Schiff and Devin Nunes.
The information was related to my employment from 2007-2015
with Obama’s National Security Advisor, Gen. James Jones. I provided signed,
DoD memorandums literally praising me for my work on a classified IIA project
for the 4th Psychological Operations Group in Iraq. IIA is the military
nomenclature for Interactive Internet Activities. Although I don’t speak about
anything we may or may not have done that was classified, and maintain
everything we did was fully compliant with the law, I do speak about how this
taxpayer appropriated, battlefield tested, social media psychological warfare
technology was made commercially available by Gen. Jones under the name,
‘ShadowNet’. It’s relational database was called, iPsy. I provided to Charlie
Crist the actual marketing slicks, and informed his staff of my discussions
with Gen. Jones’s son, Jim Jones, whom I answered to directly, that its
capability for influencing U.S. elections was discussed. I also told them at
the same time we were making the ShadowNet commercially available, we were the
#1 preferred partner of Paul Manafort and Rick Gates, both of whom had just
been indicted by Robert Mueller for what amounted to social media influence
operations, based on reporting at the time.
As a constituent of Charlie Crist I had assumed such
time-sensitive and relevant information would absolutely something my
congressman could help me with, but to my surprise, the response, which I have
in e-mail, was that they had checked with the DC office, and they were not
allowed by ethics rules to help me in providing this information, which
exonerates my president, to those people or committees. I asked if they could
at least provide me with the phone number to the office of special counsel, and
they did. I called and spoke to some unknown staffer whom stated she worked for
Robert Mueller, and provided her a brief description of my story, as well as my
contact information. Nobody from Robert Mueller’s office ever attempted to
contact me back.
As time went by over the next year, I saw at least 8 people
directly associated with the ShadowNet, not tangentially, but next-person or
first-person connection, under indictment by Robert Mueller. So with this new
information I put together in a timeline chart and returned to the office of
congressman Charlie Crist on or about January 4th, 2019. I met with the
congressman’s Veteran liaison, Gersham, and told him my story. I then filled
out a new official request, and Gersham sent the information to the respective
parties. I followed up a month later after not hearing back, and Gersham stood
right next to me as he faxed it to the respective parties with my request. I
was also told by Gersham that congressman Crist was personally aware of my
Nobody from the office of congressman Charlie Crist has
contacted me back. I sent a follow-up request yesterday, but don’t expect to
hear anything back. I had originally filed this same request with congressman
Gus Bilirakis when I live in his district, but got nowhere, and had my case
transferred to congressman Crist when I moved in 2017. I have since moved back
to congressman Gus Bilirakis district this past March, and immediately notified
his staff, opened up a new formal request, and have heard nothing back from the
congressional intelligence committee. I would also add that I had filed a
complaint with the Department of Justice Office of Inspector General before
moving sometime in late February, then re-filed it again at the direction of
the DoJ IG’s office when I moved to update my address. I have never heard back
from the IG’s office on EITHER formal, under penalty of perjury complaints I
have filed. To be honest, I don’t expect anything different from a
congressional “ethics” committee after what I’ve experienced thus
far, but felt it was worth a try.
Additionally, I would add that I have personally spoken with
Judge Jeannine Pirro and Sara Carter. I have text messages showing they were
investigating my story, and even sent me a text saying they were going to be
rolling out my story on Hannity the following week, and that Judge Jeannine was
aware of what was happening. I then got a text message from Judge Jeannine
Pirro’s persona cell phone, which I know was her’s because I had spoken to her
on that very same number and knew her voice. She sent me a text saying she was
going to speak with Devin Nunes, and then all communication between Judge
Jeannine Pirro, Sara Carter and everyone stopped. Crickets. Not an explanation
I can provide all emails, text messages and full
documentation at your request.
The Law, Regulation, or Rule Allegedly Violated (if known):
Although I think it is terrible when a whistleblower goes to
a very public member of the 4th estate for help, and that help is betrayed, I
don’t know if it violated any laws. I do know that Charlie Crist sent me one
response in 2017 that it was an ethics violation for them to assist me with
contacting the respective agencies and individual’s, and in 2019 did just that.
So, the question is did they violate the law by refusing to provide information
regarding out national security to the respective parties, of did they violate
house ethics rules when they faxed the documentation and reached out in

The fake news media has somehow ignored the story of the century – I have not! Below I describe and document my work in pioneering social media psychological warfare for the U.S. Department of Defense, and how my employer, Obama’s National Security Adviser, Gen. James Jones, was Paul Manafort’s #1 preferred partner. Below is the full story.
In 2018 Facebook partnered with the Atlantic Council to restore the integrity of elections worldwide. Gen. Jones is the Chairman of the Atlantic Council, and I believe Mark Zuckerberg owns congress an explanation. Please make sure to share!
The ability to covertly alter elections, influence legislation for lobbyists or shape our foreign and domestic policy is not just a great idea for the next John Grisham novel. The ShadowNet was a commercially available product designed with the capability of doing all that, and much more.
It was developed at taxpayer expense as part of a Defense Department contract in support of the 4th Psychological Operations Group in Iraq. I worked for a small, 15-person company called Dynology in pioneering what was known as Interactive Internet Activities, or IIA in military nomenclature. Here is a copy of the memorandum from the chief of the IIA program I supported in Iraq from October, 2007 – September, 2008.
Dynology was owned by Gen. James Jones, whom has served as former NATO Supreme Allied Commander, Obama’s National Security Adviser, and Chairman of the Atlantic Council. The ShadowNet, and its relational database, iPsy, were built at taxpayer expense under both Obama and Bush administration contracts – while Gen. Jones was serving as Obama’s National Security Adviser.
Dynology kept the intellectual property rights to the ShadowNet, then licensed it back to the Department of Defense on later contracts while serving as Obama’s National Security Adviser.
I, Patrick Bergy, worked for Gen. Jones’s company, Dynology, from 2007-2015. It was from 2007-2010 that I worked on the ShadowNet, which was the products commercial name, not a classified operational name. Below is a screenshot of the actual ShadowNet application and a flyer we made to promote publicly. Notice the 2009 Dynology Copyright on the bottom of the application.
Unbeknownst to me, at the same time Dynology was making this tactical social media psychological warfare capability available to the public commercially, Gen. Jones had partnered with his lifelong friend, John McCain, to provide IT services to his 2008 presidential primary campaign. Gen. Jones was also the #1 preferred partner of Paul Manafort and Rick Davis, whom owned 3EDC.
“3EDC was established to develop cutting edge web and data tools. These tools are designed to connect people and to affect results in the political, social and commercial worlds.”
3EDC’s website in 2007 owned by Paul Manafort and Rick Davis.
Although I originally saw the connection between Paul Manafort’s company, 3EDC, in a Vault 7 Wikileaks dump, it didn’t take long for me to make even more disturbing connections to McCain, Gen. Jones, Paul Manafort and Rick Davis. Below are quotes from a 2008 US News report. The report has been removed by US News, but I was able to dig it up using the Way-Back Machine.
I pulled the following articles together to help better understand Davis and Manafort’s relationship to Gen. James Jones and John McCain. Here is a quote from a TPM article titled, “McCain-Palin (Davis Manafort). I wonder what Mike Isikoff would say if he knew about the ShadowNet’s connection to McCain, Manafort and Davis? I’ve sent him an email asking him that very question along with a link to this post.
“In that Newsweekpiece (noted below), which details Rick Davis’s continuing financial ties to mega-lobby firm Davis Manafort, Mike Isikoff reveals that in addition to paying Davis’s salary directly to Davis Manafort, the McCain campaign has paid almost a million dollars to 3eDC, a web development company, part owned by Davis.”
“Now, digging around a little, I notice that 3eDC is pretty closely tied to Davis Manafort. Not only, as Newsweek notes, does the company share an address with Davis Manafort. Last year, US News got Davis to admit that the company has two owners — Rick Davis and Paul Manafort.
” The questions surrounding Davis concern his part ownership of a company, 3eDC, and its ties to the McCain campaign. Like Weaver and Nelson, Davis, the campaign CEO, is paid $20,000 a month. Additionally, however, Davis’s 3eDC has a lucrative contract with the campaign. U.S. News could find no public record showing Davis’s ownership interest in 3EDC, but in an interview he acknowledged that he was one of its two owners. McCain’s spokesman, Brian Jones, confirmed that Davis “did not disclose his interest in 3eDC to Senator McCain.'”
In this next quote, I found it interesting how they noted Manafort’s company only really existed on paper, and that, “it had a series of other ‘partner firms’ that did the actual work.” The fact Manafort’s number one partner, Dynology, owned the ShadowNet, which uses the same fake online persona’s and influence operations we indicted the Russian’s for in 2018, should alarm EVERYONE – irrespective of their political affiliations.
“And there’s a bit more. According to a July 2007 article in the Wall Street Journal, 3eDC was a “start-up … with one customer — the [McCain] campaign.” The Journalfurther reported that within the campaign it was understood that 3eDC was essentially a pass-through, that it had a series of other ‘partner firms’ that did the actual work.”
Now, take a look at the Michael Isakoff article where he shows 3EDC’s address is the same as Manafort’s. After, take a look at the address registered for Dynology, a company you will find nowhere shown as having been founded by Gen. James Jones. Then take a look at the address registered to Jones Group International, which is a private lobbying firm with ties to middle-east and Ukrainian energy markets. They do this because they know the optics of owning a defense contracting company when you are the NATO Supreme Allied Commander or Obama’s National Security Adviser looks really, really bad.
“Separately, another entity created and partly owned by Davis—an Internet firm called 3eDC, whose address was the same office building as Davis Manafort’s—received payments from the McCain campaign for Web services, collecting $971,860 through March 2008.”
Here is the address listed for Dynology Corporation, owners of the ShadowNet. Dynology states on their website they were founded in 1999. Gen. James Jones was serving in uniform throughout that period, and while serving as Obama’s National Security Adviser. The address is the same for Dynology as it is for Jones Group International.
And, of course, the address for ClearForce, which is a massive database of social media profiles, criminal records, travel and other personally identifiable information used to create behavioral profiles designed to predicatively determine if an employee is likely to steal or leak classified information from their employer. ClearForce is the next generation of the ShadowNet, and should be something EVERYONE should be deeply concerned about.
Here are the board of directors for ClearForce. Members include but are not limited to: Gen. James Jones, Gen. Michael Hayden, Jim Jones (son of Gen. Jones) and the California Democrat Congresswoman Eileen Tauscher. These are the holders of the “Keys to the Kingdom,” which I describe in a video in an earlier posting.
Here is what McCain’s 2008 Presidential Campaign provided at payouts to both 3EDC and Dynology.
Here is the payout to Dynology, found on the same FEC website. This is direct and verifiable evidence of the relationship between both Gen. James Jones, the ShadowNet and 3EDC.
In this chart I have put together a list connecting those related to the Mueller indictments for social media influence operations during the 2016 U.S. Presidential elections, to the ShadowNet, Dynology and ClearForce. It is just what I was able to uncover myself, imagine if ANY of the journalists I have reached out to in the last 3 years had worked with me…
Now, notice how once the Republican primary had ended and the RNC took over, McCain put $3 million into 3EDC through the RNC. You will find this payment listed by McCain’s campaign as “micro-targeted social media.” I believe it was at this time during Trumps 2016 presidential election, just after candidate Trump won the Republican primary, that John McCain, working with his powerful, lifelong friends with covert, influence operations infrastructure already in place, to insert Paul Manafort into Trumps campaign.
Why Manafort? Recent information being reported by the Ukrainian government shows members of DNC had asked them to find information on Paul Manafort that could be used to influence the election. Who would be more capable of orchestrating that than Paul Manafort’s former business partner and Obama’s National Security Adviser, Gen. James Jones? I’m open to any suggestions, but nobody has shown me anyone with the connections, experience and has a direct relationship with others like McCain that could have put this together. The fact McCain’s hands were literally in possession of the fabricated Russian dossier, and a senior McCain staff member was responsible for its dissemination to the fake news media. Do you think John McCain would do all of this himself, or call on a friend like Gen. James Jones to handle the operation?
“Perhaps not surprisingly, in June, the Post’s Matthew Mosk reported that shortly after McCain took over the Republican National Committee in his role as de facto nominee, 3eDC resurfaced with its second client to date — the Republican National Committee — with a contract potentially worth as much as $3 million.”
So, get this. John McCain paid for “micro-targeted social media” in his 2008 presidential bid to the small, privately owned company I was working for pioneering “micro-targeted” social media psychological warfare capabilities – which was also his lifelong best friend. However, in 2018 John McCain sponsors legislation banning it, “as a response to reports of Russian meddling in the 2016 elections” . Notice how his ban is focused on foreign countries, and not domestic threat-actors.
A bill was also introduced in late October by Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., Amy Klobuchar, D-Minn., and Mark Warner D-Va. The “Honest Ads Act,” whose sponsors have described it as a response to reports of Russian meddling in the 2016 elections, would require online advertisers to meet many of the same disclaimer requirements as sponsors of broadcast messages.
Irrespective of any involvement by Obama’s National Security Adviser, Gen. James Jones, in the fabricated Russian dossier, which is exactly the type of product or service a company like Dynology would provide, Gen. Jones’s personal involvement in social media psychological warfare is not in questions.
Additionally, Gen. Jones served in uniform as a 4 star general, NATO Supreme Allied Commander and other senior government positions while profiting personally from department of defense contracts. I would argue someone with a moral compass that broken wouldn’t hesitate to use illegal or covert means to alter the outcome of an American election if it provided him greater power and profit.
So now Facebook has been called before congress to explain their involvement in the 2016 presidential election influence operations, and has promised congress they were going to clean up their act. Facebook recently reported the potential of a $5 billion fine for violations related to privacy issues.
So you can imagine my surprise when Facebook decided to partner with the Atlantic Council in an effort to, “combat election-related propaganda and misinformation from proliferating on its service.” while Gen. James Jones is the Chairman of the Atlantic Council. Yes, Facebook literally partnered with Paul Manafort’s #1 preferred partner to cleanup the integrity of the election process using social media.
