The Ides of March, H.G. Well’s prediction of atomic weaponry, and Babe Ruth’s iconic finger pointed toward the stands all enjoy pride of place in the annals of historic prognostications. When all is said and done, these annals may need to open once again to accommodate a largely unsung Nostradamus by the name of Donell Harvin, former chief of the Homeland Security and Intelligence division of Washington, D.C.’s Fusion Intelligence Center. This deep-state official and vehement never-Trumper is responsible for predicting the infamous January 6th pipe bombs to an uncanny and rather troubling degree of accuracy. Why isn’t he interested in taking credit?

Donell Harvin, Deep State Nostradamus

Those who have been following our ground-breaking coverage on the scandalous J6 pipe bombs may recall that two pipe bombs were discovered on January 6th, one near the RNC building and one outside of the DNC building. The pipe bomb discovered near the RNC building was reported at around 12:50 p.m., and the bomb near the DNC building was discovered at 1:05 p.m. The fact that these two bombs were discovered independently within a 15-minute time frame that perfectly coincided with the unfolding attack on the Capitol (the Ray Epps breach) at 12:53 p.m. is a most remarkable coincidence indeed, especially given that they were both planted the evening before on January 5th and had been sitting in their respective locations for over 16 hours before magically, independently, being discovered in this critical 15-minute window.

The timing and infinitesimally implausible synchronicity of it all led many, including former Capitol Police chief Steve Sund, to embrace a “diversion theory” of the pipe bombs—namely, the bombs were never intended to go off but rather to be discovered at the critical time window so as to distract police resources and personnel from the unfolding attack on the Capitol. This theory gains extra plausibility when we consider that the bombs were equipped with a one-hour mechanical kitchen timer. If they had been intended to go off, the latest they could have gone off would have been 9 p.m. or so in a back alley, and it is hard to see what that would have achieved. It all makes perfect sense until we reflect on the following: how could the bomber have counted on the bombs remaining undiscovered for nearly 17 hours only to be independently discovered by a random pedestrian and undercover Capitol Police officer within the critically necessary 15-minute period overlapping with the unfolding attack on the Capitol? This is the damning question we have pursued with the determination of a pit bull chasing after an infant, to the point of unraveling one of the darkest scandals in recent American history.

We refer those who wish to brush up on such details to our comprehensive piece on the January 6 pipe bombs published earlier this year:

Secret Service Foreknowledge or Criminal Negligence? Damning New Evidence Surfaces In FBI’s January 6 “Pipe Bomb” Story

Now back to Deep State Donell Harvin, the unlikely Nostradamus of the January 6 pipe bombs. We mentioned that Harvin is responsible for predicting the January 6 pipe bombs to an uncomfortable and rather bizarre degree of accuracy, but don’t take our word for it—the original source for this claim is a detailed puff piece on Harvin from none other than the Washington Post. The Post piece itself, titled “Red Flags,” is extremely illuminating, and it is rather surprising that it hasn’t gotten much press coverage beyond Revolver News and Julie Kelly (actually, it’s not surprising at all when we consider the consequences for raising uncomfortable facts in relation to January 6).

The purpose of the “Red Flags” piece is to chronicle exhaustively the mountains of evidence that DHS, FBI, Capitol Police, DOJ, the Pentagon, and other agencies obtained suggesting the need for heightened security on January 6th—a day that, despite this heightened need, suffered from uniquely and suspiciously poor security. While the public may have been surprised by what transpired on the 6th, the piece asserts that the so-called “insurrection” was “spotted at every level, from one side of the country to another. The red flags were everywhere.”

It’s rather telling that this ostensible exposé of foreknowledge and forewarning in relation to January 6 features Donell Harvin as its main protagonist. The piece even begins with Harvin (emphasis ours):

The head of intelligence at D.C.’s homeland security office was growing desperate. For days, Donell Harvin and his team had spotted increasing signs that supporters of President Donald Trump were planning violence when Congress met to formalize the electoral college vote, but federal law enforcement agencies did not seem to share his sense of urgency. On Saturday, Jan. 2, he picked up the phone and called his counterpart in San Francisco, waking Mike Sena before dawn.

Sena listened with alarm. The Northern California intelligence office he commanded had also been inundated with political threats flagged by social media companies, several involving plans to disrupt the joint session or hurt lawmakers on Jan. 6.

He organized an unusual call for all of the nation’s regional homeland security offices — known as fusion centers — to find out what others were seeing. Sena expected a couple dozen people to get on the line that Monday. But then the number of callers hit 100. Then 200. Then nearly 300. Officials from nearly all 80 regions, from New York to Guam, logged on.

In the 20 years since the country had created fusion centers in response to the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Sena couldn’t remember a moment like this. For the first time, from coast to coast, the centers were blinking red. The hour, date and location of concern was the same: 1 p.m., the U.S. Capitol, Jan. 6.

Right off the bat, we’re alerted to the fact that not only were multiple intelligence and law enforcement agencies receiving red flags about the January 6th date generally, but the U.S. Capitol location at 1 p.m. specifically. Informed readers of our ground-breaking January 6 coverage will recall not only that 1 p.m. was when the certification of the vote proceeding was to begin in Congress, but also a critical intersection period between the discovery of the RNC and DNC pipe bombs at 12:40 p.m. and 1:05 p.m., respectively, and the initial and decisive Ray Epps orchestrated breach of the west perimeter of the Capitol at 12:53 p.m.

We encourage readers to keep this timeline in mind as we proceed.

The Post piece continues with a remarkable revelation:

Harvin asked his counterparts to share what they were seeing. Within minutes, an avalanche of new tips began streaming in. Self-styled militias and other extremist groups in the Northeast were circulating radio frequencies to use near the Capitol. In the Midwest, men with violent criminal histories were discussing plans to travel to Washington with weapons.

Forty-eight hours before the attack, Harvin began pressing every alarm button he could. He invited the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Department of Homeland Security, military intelligence services and other agencies to see the information in real time as his team collected it. He took another extreme step: He asked the city’s health department to convene a call of D.C.-area hospitals and urged them to prepare for a mass casualty event. Empty your emergency rooms, he said, and stock up your blood banks.

After learning the hour of concern (1 p.m.) and the location of concern (US Capitol), we now learn that the intensity of Donelll Harvin’s concern was such that he purportedly asked DC hospitals to prepare for a “mass casualty event” and to “stock up your blood banks.” Remarkable indeed. Already, the Washington Post piece represents a very different version of events than that of FBI Director Christopher Wray, who, for instance, told Amy Klobuchar that officials were simply caught off guard on January 6th. The Washington Post’s red flag piece highlights figures like Donell Harvin as a means of criticizing the ostensible incompetence and ignorance of federal agencies that should have taken more active steps to prevent January 6 from unfolding as it did. Of course, it would never occur to the penetrating minds of the Post that Christopher Wray and other key figures opted not to take preventative steps on January 6 precisely because they wanted it to take place—that they needed something they could contort into an “insurrection” in order to justify the political weaponization of the national security apparatus against Trump supporters.

Harvin’s urging hospitals to “stock up blood banks” for a mass casualty event may be a bit hysterical and hyperbolic, but all of the warning signs the Washington Post covered, including chatter from militia groups, chat rooms, and information from informants (yes, there were several), all seem to reasonably support the idea that there would be concern in relation to January 6th. The Post piece (likely inadvertently) takes a different turn, however, when it relays a concern regarding January 6th that is so uncannily specific that it forces us to ask some very uncomfortable questions regarding the source and nature of this foreknowledge.

Here’s where the Post piece starts to get bizarre. In the section of the piece meant to chronicle agency preparation 16 days and fewer before January 6th, the post reveals that Harvin was analyzing a number of protests throughout the country, and for whatever reason, he assigned the task of analyzing January 6th to his most junior analyst.

The Washington Post:

The Jan. 6 assignment went to the office’s most junior analyst, who quickly became spooked about what he saw. Almost daily, he brought Harvin disturbing new posts found online.

Extremists from different parts of the country were now coordinating logistics. They were mobilizing an informal army, exchanging tips about how to smuggle weapons into D.C., where to meet, what to wear, he noted.

One wonders: if Donell Harvin thought January 6 was going to be a mass casualty event requiring stocking up of blood banks, why would he casually assign the threat analysis of that day to his most junior analyst? But wait, there’s more! What follows is one of the most remarkable revelations in all of January 6 reporting:

By the time Harvin called a major planning meeting on Dec. 30, the young analyst was ready to present a worst-case scenario: Someone could plant an improvised explosive device near the Capitol, he said. With law enforcement distracted, extremists might then band together and attack government buildings, maybe even the Capitol.

What a remarkable prediction from this young analyst! Let’s think about this for a second. It would be one thing to speculate that maybe someone would use explosives at these protests, or that someone might try to blow up the Capitol or otherwise use explosives as a terror attack. This prediction is much more bizarrely and inexplicably specific. This young analyst apparently viewed a worst-case scenario as someone planting an explosive device near the Capitol, and the focus here is not on the destructive impact. Indeed, it is very strange to focus on a worst-case scenario involving an explosive device that does not focus primarily on the death and destruction caused by the explosive. Instead, the focus is not on the explosive but on the possibility that the explosive device might distract law enforcement, enabling extremists to band together and attack “‘government buildings, maybe even the Capitol.”

This is pretty much exactly what happens with the pipe bombs, which were discovered near the RNC and DNC buildings, respectively. The bombs did not explode, and given that they were planted the evening before with an hour-long kitchen timer, it is unlikely that they were intended to explode. Surveillance footage of the DNC pipe bomb’s discovery shocked the nation, as it depicted Secret Service agents and Capitol Police officers abandoning all safety protocols out of an inexplicable certainty that the bomb posed no threat—even to the point of letting schoolchildren walk right by it! Given that the bombs did not go off and likely were never intended to, the critical role they played was not in explosive destruction but rather in diverting resources from the unfolding attack on the Capitol. As mentioned earlier in this piece, the pipe bombs were discovered at 12:40 and 1:05 p.m., respectively—a fifteen-minute window that aligned perfectly with the unfolding Ray Epps orchestrated attack on the Capitol that began at 12:53.

It was the utterly bizarre fact that the pipe bombs had been lying in their respective locations, undiscovered, for nearly 17 hours, only to be independently discovered within this decisive 15-minute time frame, that suggested to former Capitol Police chief Steve Sund and others that the purpose of the bombs was diversionary. Of course, it is a very strange thing that the person who planted the bomb somehow knew that they would be “randomly” discovered by pedestrians and law enforcement within the exact 15-minute window so as to achieve the diversionary effect. It is also very strange that this magically clairvoyant “junior analyst” in Harvin’s office would have thought to emphasize the diversionary rather than destructive importance of the hypothetical explosives—something that would only make sense in a bizarre and rather unlikely scenario as that which played out with the pipe bombs on January 6th.

And sure enough, as the Post piece reports, Harvin thought back to the clairvoyant powers of this mysterious and unnamed “junior analyst” (emphasis ours):

Midway through Trump’s speech, about 12:45 p.m., Capitol Police officers, along with agents from the FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, were dispatched to investigate reports of a pipe bomb with a timer found outside the Republican National Committee headquarters and suspicious packages at the Supreme Court and near the Democratic National Committee headquarters — all offices close to the Capitol.

The activity proved a distraction for officers guarding the Capitol. A D.C. homeland security official assigned to keep eyes on the swelling crowd was sitting in a black SUV on the east side of the Capitol, by a row of Capitol Police bomb-squad trucks. Suddenly, officers jumped into several of the trucks near him. Half pulled away to the south. Several more took off to the west. The official realized his SUV was now one of the last remaining vehicles and that fewer than 10 officers remained between the Capitol and the growing number of protesters.

The official called Donell Harvin, who said the bomb squads were responding to the suspicious package reported near the RNC building. The two flashed back to their tabletop exercise on Dec. 30, and how an analyst had imagined a scenario in which improvised explosive devices could be used to distract law enforcement before an attack on the Capitol. “Is this really happening?” the official asked Harvin.

And this was the last we heard of this enigmatic young analyst who, if these reports are true, made the most strikingly and inexplicably accurate prediction about January 6 by a mile. Interestingly, the only other notable person to have made a similar prediction was none other than Ray Epps, who, in an interview with the FBI that is littered with inconsistencies, claimed that the motivating factor for his flying across the country to attend the January 6 protest in the first place was his concern that bad actors might plant explosives on the side streets near the Capitol. This prediction is not quite as hauntingly precise as Donell Harvin’s young analyst, but still a striking prediction given the source, and especially so given the fact that Ray, in his own words, played a prominent role in the initial and decisive breach of the west perimeter of the Capitol, whose baffling synchronicity with the discovery of the pipe bombs caused people like Steve Sund to espouse the “diversion theory” of the pipe bombs in the first place. Of course, the FBI interviewer didn’t even bother to ask Epps a follow-up question about the pipe bombs, but we digress.

Unlike the mysterious analyst, however, Donell Harvin did not disappear. He retired from his position as head of intelligence at the Washington, D.C.-based Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency (HSEMA) to become a semi-regular fixture in the media as a January 6th political commentator. Harvin is presented as the wise national security expert who predicted January 6th all along and gets to say “I told you so” to the FBI and other agencies that we are led to believe were simply caught off guard on January 6th. As it turns out, Donell Harvin, a minority who worked for a municipal intelligence agency (HSEMA is a D.C. institution), was right all along, and if the bungling bigwigs in the federal agencies had just listened to him, our nation would have been spared the worst insurrection in history. The narrative touches all of the media’s erogenous zones as it plays up the January 6th talking points and additionally presents the underdog minority who was right all along—the hidden figure of the insurrection, as it were.

For instance, here is Harvin on CBS discussing the Washington Post red flags article described above.

Note that at the 1:50 mark, the news presenter repeats the claim from the Post piece that Harvin predicted violence on January 6th and asked the state hospitals to get body bags ready. Harvin leans into his role as the predictive expert, noting how “unfortunate” it was that he, as a local D.C. intelligence official, knew that January 6th posed a threat, yet his “federal parters” weren’t ready.

What’s utterly bizarre about this whole interview elevating Harvin as this predictive expert is that both Harvin and the newscasters neglect to mention the single most remarkable January 6th prediction of all time, and that is the aforementioned pipe bomb prediction that came out of Harvin’s office from this mystery analyst. This neglect is puzzling indeed, as it not only highlights the remarkable predictive powers of Harvin’s office but also serves as an opportunity to remind the public of the dangerous pipe bombs of January 6th, which, in the view of the media, were of course planted by a MAGA domestic terrorist.

Donell Harvin and the CBS hosts’ failure to mention the pipe bomb prediction seems to go against all interest, almost as striking as the fact that Kamala Harris still refuses to acknowledge she was even in DNC as the pipe bomb was discovered, thereby foregoing the attractive opportunity to milk politically the talking point that she came within a hair’s width of losing her life to the deadly MAGA bomb. Very bizarre.

Perhaps the CBS segment’s failure to mention the pipe bomb prediction out of Harvin’s office is just a one-off. Surely he must have mentioned it in other such interviews, of which there are several.

And yet here’s another interview with the same theme—touting the predictive skills of Harvin and his DC Fusion Center office—that also curiously neglects the fact that Harvin’s office reportedly made the most strikingly accurate January 6th prediction in existence.

In yet another interview, this time with Chris Hayes on MSNBC, we see the same thing. The segment again celebrates the remarkable January 6 predictions of Harvin and his office, and there is not a peep from Harvin or the interviewer about the most remarkable prediction of all. Strange!

So we see that the single most striking prediction concerning January 6, a prediction made by a mysterious and unnamed “junior analyst” in Harvin’s office, is somehow equally and mysteriously forgotten and unmentioned even in Harvin’s media blitz, the purpose of which is to highlight the predictive powers of Harvin and his office as opposed to those of federal agencies such as the FBI.

This is, of course, not the only bizarre omission against interest associated with the January 6 pipe bombs. Indeed, we’ve pointed out repeatedly how strange it is that Kamala Harris has not even publicly acknowledged the fact that she was in the DNC building when the pipe bomb was discovered just outside. You’d think someone like Kamala would be interested in milking the fact that she came within a hair’s width of losing her life to the deadly MAGA pipe bomb, especially given how much the regime and Biden himself have invested in amplifying the public’s sense of danger and terror associated with this so-called “insurrection.” But we digress.

Given the strange fact pattern above, it is worth getting a better sense of who Donell Harvin is. What, if any, are his political leanings? Not surprisingly, it doesn’t take much digging to discover that he is not a fan of Trump, but even for a deep-state Never-Trumper, his rhetoric is unhinged and fanatical.

In one remarkable piece for Politico, Harvin goes so far as to assert that Trump “poses a significant threat to homeland security!” Don’t believe it? Read it for yourself:

Federal intelligence and national security agencies — from the FBI to DHS — are in universal agreement that domestic extremism and terrorism is the leading threat to the U.S. homeland. But homeland security officials are also trained to be apolitical, so here’s what they can’t tell you: Donald J. Trump poses a significant threat to homeland security.”

Harvin goes on to elaborate that Trump not only poses a threat to national security, but he is the “greatest threat to our nation”—he’s even more of a threat than China!

Trump’s willingness to fan the worst flames of discord and division is why, in my assessment, he is currently the greatest threat to our nation.

My national security friends and colleagues might argue that it is a beleaguered and inflamed Russia, or a rising and emboldened China that are more serious threats to our security than a single failed politician. What they would miss in that argument, however, is that Trump is not a single person. He has become an ideology, one that tens of millions of Americans embrace; many are willing to commit acts of violence, go to prison, forfeit their marriages and relationships, and even die for it. How can any foreign adversary be more dangerous to us than ourselves? It’s why our adversaries expend great effort at sowing domestic division with elaborate and sophisticated mis- and disinformation campaigns.

It gets even worse. Not only is Trump the greatest threat to the nation, but the reason he’s such a threat is that he also represents a movement that millions of Americans are sympathetic toward. By extension, Trump supporters are also a national security threat, in Harvin’s view.

Harvin celebrated Trump’s indictment, of course.

Harvin’s anti-Trump hysteria and his former position in the intelligence world are reminiscent of Bishop Garrison, an official responsible for the Pentagon’s political purge program, whom we famously exposed in a blockbuster piece as a never-Trump zealot.

Read It: Meet Bishop Garrison: The Pentagon’s Hatchet Man in Charge of Purging MAGA Patriots and Installing Race Theory in the Military

Harvin is not just deranged when it comes to Trump. A quick perusal of Harvin’s social media reveals his boiling animus toward anyone remotely associated with Trump or anti-establishment politics.

Here is Harvin complaining about Tucker Carlson’s coverage of January 6:

And surprise, surprise, Harvin is against Elon Musk too. Here is a juvenile tweet thread from Harvin boasting about blocking Musk:

Musk is, of course, a bad, bad guy because… he once tweeted a meme of Pepe the Frog. The horror!

Pepe the Frog, along with the OK sign, are considered hate symbols by delusional organizations such as the ADL. Of course, Harvin is a fan of them too, and he thinks the OK sign is a hate symbol. We’re not making this up.


Here’s Harvin wishing that Steve Bannon is sent to prison. Charming guy.

This tweet of Harvin getting a pedicure is arguably more offensive than his deranged anti-Trump positions. Yuck!

Before we return to the pipe bomb case, another important dimension of Harvin’s politics must be exposed. It is clear throughout his commentary that one of his chief political objectives is to use the “insurrection” narrative of January 6 to shoehorn a massive censorship regime under the guise of fighting “disinformation.”

At the 4:22 minute mark of the CBS interview mentioned at the beginning of this article, Harvin makes it a point to say that the bigger threat than even January 6th is so-called “misinformation” and “disinformation,”  by which of course he means speech that the regime does not approve of.


In a LinkedIn post, he praises an article attacking the New York Times for downplaying the threat of Hitler in the 1930s. Taken alone, this would not be objectionable. In context, and given the fact that Harvin views Trump as the nation’s number one national security threat and additionally views January 6 as an event of white supremacy, it is clear that Harvin views Trump and his supporters as a kind of Nazi threat. Accordingly, his remarks about “hate speech” are best interpreted as a call to censor Trump and his supporters before a new Hitler emerges. He even goes so far as to say that downplaying the threat of hate speech is itself an “equal threat.” Heavens me!

Donell Harvin via LinkedIn:

Simply a brilliant read, and timeless unfortunately. Underestimating hateful speech, violent rhetoric and the impact it has on citizens is a critical mistake that many influential and powerful people have made since times of antiquity. False/inaccurate reporting by the media of the threat hate speech poses is an equal threat. There are no shortage of unstable individuals, violent groups, and as J6 showed us, mobile vulgus, that are ready to act on words alone.

Harvin later promoted a RAND study report on the threat of online extremism titled “extremist use of online spaces” (by which he surely means Trump supporters online):

As it so happens, there is another individual with a remarkable connection to the January 6 pipe bombs who now earns a living fighting so-called “disinformation.” Recall Karlin Younger, the random pedestrian who, we are told, stumbled upon the first pipe bomb in a back alley near the Capitol Hill Club (near the RNC). According to Younger’s own statements, she happened upon the first pipe bomb at exactly 12:40 p.m. and noticed that the hour-long mechanical timer attached to the pipe bomb had 20 minutes left and was in fact stuck on the dial. If this is true, this would mean that Karlin Younger randomly stumbled upon the first pipe bomb in a back alley at the exact minute that would convey the impression the bomb was set to go off at 1:00 p.m., which was when the certification of the vote proceeding was to begin in Congress. The remarkable timing of this is still more striking when we note that the bomb, planted the evening before shortly after 8 p.m., had been sitting in the alley undiscovered for over 16 hours before Karlin Younger discovered it, to the exact minute as to be perfectly synchronized with the certification of the vote, and within minutes of the unfolding first attack on the Capitol.

We have covered these details comprehensively in earlier pieces. In light of Donell Harvin’s concern for “disinformation,” however, it is at least worth pointing out Karlin Younger’s current place of employment: a company called Pendulum, which contracts with the government to fight “disinformation.”

We first reported on Younger’s employment with Pendulum in our bombshell report covering the surveillance footage of the discovery of the DNC pipe bomb:

In light of all of these coincidences, it is interesting to note Younger’s current place of employment: Pendulum. Pendulum is a company staffed with DOD, DARPA, and CIA alums that does business with the government to “combat misinformation online.” Pendulum has so far released reports on Election Fraud, Covid Vaccine Misinformation, and, of course, QAnon Domestic Extremism.

READ IT: Secret Service Foreknowledge or Criminal Negligence? Damning New Evidence Surfaces in FBI’s January 6 “Pipe Bomb” Story

That Pendulum has released reports on election fraud, COVID vaccine misinformation, and QAnon is interesting given that these almost perfectly coincide with the publicly expressed censorship priorities of the Department of Homeland Security, including the DHS’ infamous and now defunct (or so we’re told) Disinformation Governance Board.

Subsequently, a Twitter user, @jacktronprime, helpfully went through Pendulum’s corporate structure and revealed that many of its employees have deep intelligence ties. For instance, the founder and CEO, Mark Listes, had previously been at Madrona Venture Labs, where he developed tools to track and combat harmful narratives. Before he was at the cutting edge of using AI to track and censor harmful narratives, including “election fraud” narratives, Listes was the Director of Policy at the US Election Assistance Commission. Listes’ co-founder, Sam Clark, cut his teeth developing frontier technology to facilitate the censorship of Youtube. Other key Pendulum employees include a former DARPA scientist and a former CIA officer, among others.

In short, Pendulum is a government contractor staffed to the hilt with former CIA and DARPA officials whose animating purpose is to use cutting-edge technology to assist in the censorship of narratives the regime doesn’t like, including election fraud, COVID vaccine narratives, and QAnon. It doesn’t necessarily mean anything, but it is certainly interesting that the random pedestrian Karlin Younger, who discovered the RNC pipe bomb under extremely coincidental circumstances, happens to now be employed by such a firm. Just as it’s interesting that Donell Harvin, the man whose office is responsible for the most accurate January 6 prediction about the pipe bombs, happens to be an anti-Trump deep-state zealot with a particular interest in the censorship of “disinformation.”

Perhaps even more interesting than Karlin Younger’s current place of employment, however, is her place of employment on January 6th. On January 6th, Karlin Younger was employed by a company called FirstNet Authority. What is FirstNet Authority, you may ask? FirstNet Authority is an independent authority within the US Department of Commerce that exists to provide broadband networks for first responders and the emergency response community. Currently, DHS Chair Mayorkas and Merrick Garland serve on the board of FirstNet (the Attorney General and DHS Chair are always on the board, apparently). As the great Julie Kelly has pointed out, FirstNet Authority did a nearly $100 million deal with the FBI just less than a month before January 6, 2021.


The FBI expanded its use of FirstNet in a $92 million agreement with AT&T for additional mobility capabilities supporting its day-to-day and emergency operations.

FirstNet is the only nationwide, high-speed broadband platform exclusive to the public safety community, and it will prioritize the access of law enforcement agencies like the FBI to voice and data over other spectrum uses in an emergency.

The FBI’s new agreement with AT&T represents the largest commitment to FirstNet by such an agency to date, securing FirstNet Ready devices like smartphones, air cards and modems.

“FirstNet was built with and for all of public safety – including our federal first responders,” said Ed Parkinson, CEO of the FirstNet Authority, in Tuesday’s announcement. “We are pleased to see the [Department of Justice] expand its use of the network platform to connect more agencies within the law enforcement community.”

The fact that the DHS Chair serves on the board of Firstnet is not the only Homeland Security connection to the organization. Ed Parkinson, who joined FirstNet in 2013 and served as its CEO for several years (including 2021), had formerly worked as a staffer in Congress’ Homeland Security Committee.

Interestingly, FirstNet Authority was very active on January 6th, 2021. A PC Mag piece published the day after January 6 addressing communications outages on that day touts the first responders’ use of the FirstNet’s special broadband spectrum to communicate with one another (emphasis ours):

The riot in Washington, D.C. yesterday made clear the limits of 4G technology, and led to a few relatively reasonable conspiracy theories. As mobs stormed the US Capitol, plenty of people nearby reported their phones having no signal or non-functional connections.


Of course, when this happens at an event like this, it isn’t crazy to wonder if law enforcement is jamming communications. The answer is, they usually aren’t. As our senior analyst for software and security, Max Eddy, pointed out to me, the cops gain more by hoovering up location and messaging data than they do by cutting off video streams.


The cops’ phones all keep working because they’re on a special part of the AT&T network called FirstNet, which gives priority to first responders. Heavy FirstNet usage would slightly reduce civilian device capacity at that location, though, because FirstNet comes first.

What does all of this mean in relation to Karlin Younger? The fact that she was an employee of FirstNet Authority doesn’t necessarily mean anything, of course. After all, we’ve all got to work somewhere. It is interesting, though, that the woman who discovered the first pipe bomb with such infinitesimally improbable timing, who now works for a government (likely DHS) contractor group to censor narratives the regime doesn’t like, was at the time she discovered the J6 pipe bomb working for a company like FirstNet Authority, which would have likely put her right in the mix with the Washington, D.C., first responder community, including Donell Harvin’s group at the Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency (HSEMA).

To give you a sense of just how cross-pollinated this so-called “first responder” community is, consider the following promotional piece for FirstNet titled “Always On,” in which Donell Harvin’s HSEMA colleague Charlie Guddemi is featured prominently singing the praises of FirstNet Authority, particularly for FirstNet’s handling of January 6th.

FirstNet (emphasis ours):

Communications interoperability and network priority and preemption are now key components of FirstNet, the nation’s first and only broadband network
designed with and for first responders.

Now serving as the statewide interoperability coordinator for the District of Columbia Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency, Guddemi said FirstNet’s capabilities were most recently put to the test during the Jan. 6 insurgency at the U.S. Capitol. “The network was able to serve the first responders who were trying to defend the Capitol that day —commercial networks didn’t have the same success,” Guddemi said. “Without FirstNet, public safety’s ability to respond and coordinate would have been even more difficult and complicated than it already was.” “It was critically important to help the coordination that was going on,” he explained, “because in addition to the boots on the ground, a lot of communications was needed to support the first responders and mutual-aid agencies going into and information sharing coming out of U.S. Capitol Complex.”

Elsewhere, Guddemi speaks about how his job at HSEMA is to interact with all stakeholders in the first responder community, which would obviously include FirstNet, telling them that, “Every day, I engage with District agencies, federal partners, and other National Capital Region stakeholders, including the private sector, to ensure the emergency communications ecosystem is functioning at its peak. Interoperability means I go everywhere.”

All of this is simply to establish the degree of cross-pollination and networking that occurs within the “first responder community,” which would include both Karlin Younger’s company FirstNet and Donell Harvin’s agency HSEMA. Incidentally, it would also include Ashan Benedict, the ATF agent who led the first response to the January 6th pipe bombs and who, in a recent expose, we identified as one of the key cover-up men of the January 6t pipe bomb scandal.

Here, for instance, is evidence that Ashan Benedict sat on a panel with Karlin Younger’s aforementioned boss, Ed Parkinson, then CEO of FirstNet Authority:

One wonders how well and for how long Parkinson and Benedict knew each other. Interestingly, one of Ashan Benedict’s very few Twitter posts is a picture of him with then-retiring Rep. Pete King, the former chair of Congress’ Homeland Security Committee and Edward Parkinson’s old boss for four years.

Incidentally, the January 6 emergency response text chain that Ashan Benedict led, and which we used to expose Benedict in several deceptions (if not lies), was in all likelihood using FirstNet broadband. Come to think of it, we wonder if Donell Harvin was on that text chain. That wouldn’t be surprising given his role as head of intelligence at HSEMA and the fact that he himself was coordinating with first responders, including first responders to the pipe bomb (which his office so accurately and mysteriously predicted).

Back to Karlin Younger, it is worth noting that her specific role at FirstNet was particularly well suited for cross-pollination, mingling, and networking with folks in the first responder community, including Harvin’s office at HSEMA. At FirstNet, Younger was principally involved in facilitating public-private partnerships in the emergency response community and in fostering programs like R2R, which provided funding for various stakeholders in the emergency response community.

Karlin Younger’s previous and current employment, yet again, don’t necessarily suggest anything. The most bizarre thing is that Karlin Younger allegedly stumbled upon the “RNC pipe bomb” at the exact minute as to be precisely aligned with both the certification of the vote proceeding on January 6th at 1:00 p.m. and the unfolding Ray Epps orchestrated assault on the Western perimeter of the Capitol at 12:52 p.m. The chances that this bomb would have remained undiscovered for over 16 hours only to be discovered almost exactly as the events at the Capitol were unfolding are infinitesimally low. The coincidence of this was so striking. Remember, the head of the Capitol Police, Steve Sund, hypothesized that the pipe bombs were planted precisely to divert resources from the Capitol as the attack was unfolding. But how could the person who planted the bomb have counted on such extraordinary luck that his or her planted devices would remain undiscovered for 16 hours only to be discovered by a random pedestrian at the exact minute the attack on the Capitol began to unfold?

These are very puzzling and disturbing questions, and to the best of our knowledge, Karlin Younger was never even questioned by the FBI after having discovered the RNC pipe bomb. According to the former head of the FBI’s Washington Field Office, Steven D’Antuono, who was the lead on the January 6 pipe bomb case, it is “investigation 101” to view the people who discover bombs in any case as suspects, at least initially, and this is leaving out the remarkable circumstances under which the January 6 pipe bombs were discovered. How and on what basis Karlin Younger was ruled out as a suspect, or whether, notwithstanding D’Antuono’s remark, she was a suspect at all, remains unknown.

At the very least, it seems as though Younger might be worth talking to, if only to learn more about the circumstances under which the first pipe bomb was discovered.

It is interesting that someone who discovered the Jan. 6 pipe bomb under such bizarre circumstances should currently work for a company that is deeply linked with the national security and intelligence community, and that does contracting work with the government (likely DHS) to “track” narratives that the regime has identified as naughty, including election integrity narratives. Furthermore, it is additionally interesting that at the time Karlin Younger discovered the January 6 pipe bombs, she was working for a First Responder company with documented connections to Donell Harvin’s office.

Both the random pedestrian who discovered the January 6 pipe bombs under remarkable circumstances and Donell Harvin’s office that remarkably predicted the January 6 pipe bombs were both very much in the heavily cross pollinated “first responder” community in Washington, D.C.

Just as Karlin Younger’s place of employment doesn’t necessarily suggest anything, neither does the fact that Donell Harvin’s office made such a remarkably specific prediction in relation to the pipe bomb or the fact that Harvin’s public statements reflect deep animus toward Trump and his supporters. It is certainly highly bizarre, and still more bizarre that Harvin never thought to mention this remarkable prediction again or the mysterious “junior analyst” under his employ who allegedly made this prediction.

At the very least, the public deserves to know more about the circumstances of this uncannily accurate prediction, given how rapidly the January 6 pipe bomb story is collapsing, along with the official narrative of January 6 generally.

The troubling information in relation to Harvin does not stop here, however. There is another piece of the puzzle yet to be explored. Stay tuned.
