The Ericsson Report

📱 When you dial out to 911

Your phones connection needs to be ported over to Emergency Services -Fire, Police, EMS etc. The company controlling that process is iconectiv formerly Telcordia Technologies Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Foreign Swedish Telecom giant Ericsson.

In February of 2022, an internal investigation conducted between 2011-2019 by Ericsson was leaked to Journalists at the ICIJ (International Consortium of Investigative Journalists).

On February 27th, 2022 the ICIJ published their Investigation titled The Ericsson List.

Key Findings

  • The Ericsson List reveals that the Swedish telecom giant sought permission from the terrorist group known as the Islamic State to work in an ISIS-controlled city and paid to smuggle equipment into ISIS areas on a route known as the “Speedway.”

  • Ericsson made tens of millions of dollars in suspicious payments over nearly a decade to sustain its business in Iraq, financing slush funds, trips abroad for defense officials and payoffs through middlemen to corporate executives and possibly terrorists.

  • The telecom giant relied on politically connected fixers and unvetted subcontractors, sham contracts, inflated invoices, falsified financial statements and payments to “consultants” with nebulous job descriptions as part of its business dealings in Iraq.

  • Ericsson presided over corrupt conduct in Iraq even after it had acknowledged in 2013 that it was cooperating with U.S. authorities investigating bribery allegations elsewhere. The U.S. probe, which does not mention Iraq, resulted in a $1 billion bribery settlement in 2019.

  • Ericsson conducted other internal probes of alleged misconduct in Lebanon, Spain, Portugal and Egypt. In addition, a spreadsheet lists undisclosed company probes into possible bribery, money laundering and embezzlement by employees in Angola, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, Brazil, China, Croatia, Libya, Morocco, the United States and South Africa.

The Ericsson List probe revealed entrenched corruption and raised questions about the U.S. Justice Department's practice of settling criminal cases against corporations with deferred prosecution agreements. The agreements impose fines, penalizing shareholders, but often avoid charging the executives responsible.

In 2019, the Justice Dept fined Ericsson $1B to resolve the government's investigation into violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA), the highest penalty ever levied on a Corporation.

The Justice Department’s press release notes “Ericsson’s corrupt conduct involved high-level executives and spanned 17 years and at least five countries, al in a misguided effort to increase profits,” more importantly Ericsson "agreed to the imposition of an independent compliance monitor."

Investigation or Coverup?

The $1B in total charges include a criminal penalty of more than $520 million, plus $540 million to be paid to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in a related matter.

In a Form 20-F SEC filing response to Ericsson on September 29th, 2010, the SEC notes:

" As you know, Cuba, Iran, Sudan, and Syria are countries that are identified by the U.S. Department of State as state sponsors of terrorism, and are subject to U.S. economic sanctions and export controls. "

As a result of the Iranian takeover of the American Embassy on November 4, 1979, the United States and Iran severed diplomatic relations in April 1980. The United States and the Islamic Republic of Iran have had no formal diplomatic relationship since that date. Switzerland is the U.S. protecting power and provides limited consular services to U.S. citizens in Iran. lran has no embassy in Washington, D.C.

  • November 28th, 2010PlusD Leaks

    The United States diplomatic cables leak, widely known as Cablegate part of a series known as PlusD.

    "WikiLeaks began publishing 251,287 leaked United States embassy cables, the largest set of confidential documents ever to be released into the public domain. The documents will give people around the world an unprecedented insight into the US Government’s foreign activities."

  • December 1st, 2010Amazon removes WikiLeaks

  • Interpol Issues Arrest Warrant for Assange

    The global police agency Interpol confirmed Wednesday it had alerted member states to arrest WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange on suspicion of rape on the basis of a Swedish arrest warrant.

  • December 3rd, 2010US blocks access to WikiLeaks for federal workers

    The Obama administration is bans hundreds of thousands of federal employees from visiting the WikiLeaks site on government computers because the leaked material is still formally regarded as classified.

Assange Interviews at the time

Setup in Sweden?

Cablegate | Swedish Connection

The following WikiLeaks PlusD cables clearly indicate that the State Department along with US intelligence agencies were made aware of Sweden's reluctance to impose sanctions on Iran, who at the time was Sweden's second largest export market behind Saudi Arabia.

Specifically mentioned in the cable is Ericsson along with : business partner ABB.

Take note of the Agencies and organizations this cable was sent to. 3. (C) In February 2008, Sweden signed a bilateral investment treaty with Iran. The Swedish government is critical of lran where human rights are concerned, but advocates maintaining a dialogue with Iran and encourages trade with Iran.

Reading the highlighted points from the leaked Cable above we'd like to emphasize "The Swedish government is critical of Iran where human rights are concerned, but advocates maintaining a dialogue with Iran and encourages trade with Iran." Sweden uses the lame excuse of the "Civil Liberties" of their Iranian population as the excuse for continuing trade with a nation involved in Human Rights abuses.

The Cables which Amazon and the Department of Homeland Security requested be blocked clearly exposed the State Department and proves these IC agencies (CIA, DIA, Department of Commerce, along with both the State Department and the Treasury Department's as well as the Group Destinations European Political Collective, Iran and the Iran Collective) all knowingly proceeded with sanctioning Iran's entire infrastructure and economy all the while enabling Ericsson and ABB by not including them in several listed sanctions by both the US and EU between 2010-13.

This video shows Julian Assange via Wikileaks attempting contact Hillary Clintons State Department to reimplement security measures within her emails.Before this Wikileaks had redacted a substantial amount of information from the cables. This phone call took place when the password protecting the full, underacted State Department cables (leaked by Chelsea Manning) was obtained by a source other than Wikileaks.

Sweden blocked an effort by other EU states to add two telecoms firms in Syria with commercial links to Swedish firm Ericsson to an EU sanctions list this week, EU diplomats said.

European Union foreign ministers meeting in Brussels on Thursday agreed to add 11 Syrian firms or entities to the sanctions list as part of international efforts to end government violence against pro-democracy protests.

The 26 other EU countries had wanted to add two Syrian telecoms firms to the list, but Sweden threatened to block the entire package if they were included, the diplomats said.

A previous round of EU sanctions targeted Syria’s main mobile phone operator, Syriatel, which was supplied by Ericsson, the world’s top supplier of mobile phone network infrastructure.

EU Diplomats per Reuters

" We are not going to broaden sanctions on Iran to include Technologies like Telecom. We're going to rely and expect companies like Ericsson to police themselves. "

Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State (2009-2013)

Pay to Play

Bill Clinton's Swedish Foundation rakes in $26 Million between 2010-2013 while Hillary Clinton is Secretary of State.

Arab Spring

Although the Democratic Party under Obama takes a lot of the blame for the Arab Spring/Regime change during his time as president, Republican's under George W. Bush paved the way for destabilization in Iraq and the Muddle East through wars based on phony intelligence re: "Weapons of Mass Destruction". 

LEAKED EVIDENCE: Senator John McCain Involved In Major Islamic Conspiracy To Establish Islamic State RINO's like John McCain were also curiously pictured in 2013 with Terrorists who would coincidentally go on to lead ISIS.

Pictured from left to right: Abu Mosa (Former al-Qaeda operative ‘4 Abu Mosa, now ISIS Press Officer) -Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi (/S/S Calif, Leader of ISIS) -John McCain (Republican Senator) -Mohammad Nour (Suspect in the kidnapping of 3 hostages shown in ISIS beheading videos) - Mouaz Moustafa (Has a curious history of being in all the right places at all the wrong times)
Sub-Picture from left to right: Paul Ryan (Republican Senator) -Mouaz Moustafa

Wherever John McCain roamed, civil war broke out shortly thereafter. Interesting how these “freedomfighters” end up with US manufactured heat seeking tow missiles.

In this Video you'll notice the Egyptian government via telecom providers cut off access to the internet with no regard for the Egyptian Constitution whatsoever. Not all telecoms went along with the censoring as WikiLeaks Jacob Applebaum emphasizes.

However, if telecoms like Ericsson conducted business with ISIS and aided in the overthrow of entire nations across the Middle East, now that they control 911 Portability services in the US, what's to stop them from implementing the very same censorship with no oversight measures in place, it’s citizens would never be able to tell the difference.

Nokia and Ericsson were heavily involved in Egypt. The 2019 Justice Department decision specifically mentions Nokia. Ericsson also paid Nokia $90M for their involvement in the probe.

ISIS Reemergence in 2011

Over the next few years, it took advantage of growing instability in Iraq & Syria to carry out attacks & bolster its ranks with Ericsson's help of course! Telecoms control the Airwaves and the only Telecom allowed to do business with terrorists and get away with it is Ericsson (who also has intellectual property tied to Rodney Joffe who is Referenced as “Tech Executive 1” in the Durham Investigation)

Critical Thinking

The Obama Admin, Hillary's State Department and the EU applied crippling sanctions on Iran and Syria from 2010-2013 only allowing Ericsson and its subsidiary to continue doing business in Iran, Iraq and Syria. From Ericsson's own internal report that had to be leaked to the ICIJ in February 2022, we find out Ericsson was enabling ISIS takeover of Iraq and Syria. Meanwhile the Obama Admin and the EU conveniently provided cover through economic sanctions that crippled and prevented legitimate businesses (aside from Ericsson) from operating in the area.

The US Government, along with the EU were not only aware (proven by the WikiLeaks cables) but their crippling sanctions made it so only corrupt corporations who exchange blood for cash could operate in very technologically destabilized regions of the Middle East. "At its height, the Islamic State - also known as ISIS, ISIL, or Daesh - held about a third of Syria and 40 percent of Iraq."

Imagine if Hillary Clinton would have won the 2016 Presidential Election.

In less than 11 months in office President Trump did the opposite of enabling ISIS, he also called out Ericsson's terrible business practices.

By December 2017, ISIS had lost 95 percent of its territory, including its two biggest properties, Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, and the northern Syrian city of Raqqa, its nominal capital.

Important to highlight

Warbug Pincus was named after Eric Warbug, son of Max Warburg who's brother Paul Warburg is known as one of the six chief architects of the Federal Reserve Act. At one point in 2011, Warburg Pincus owned Crowdstrike, Telcordia and Neustar. (not a coincidence)

Warburg Pincus history dates back to 1913. The Federal Reserve System was Paul Warburg's idea. He represented the U.S. at the Treaty of Versailles conference that ended World War I.

Who was sitting across the table from Paul in Versailles? His brother, Max, who represented Germany.

Timothy Geithner Power of Attorney for Crowdstrike

As President of the New York Fed and Secretary of the Treasury, Timothy Geithner had a key role in government efforts to recover from the financial crisis of 2007-08 and the Great Recession. Since March 2014, after leaving the White House as Treasury Secretary under Obama he has served as president and managing director of Warburg Pincus. Geithner was also President of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

The Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA H.R. 3523 (112th Congress), H.R. 624 (113th Congress), H.R. 234 (114th Congress) was a proposed law in the United States which would allow for the sharing of Internet traffic information between the U.S. government and technology and manufacturing companies. The stated aim of the bill is to help the U.S. government investigate cyber threats and ensure the security of networks against cyberattacks.

The legislation was introduced on November 30, 2011, by Representative Michael Rogers (R-MI) and 111 co-sponsors. It was passed in the House of Representatives on April 26, 2012, but was not passed by the U.S. Senate.

CISPA is an amendment to the National Security Act of 1947, which does not currently contain provisions pertaining to cybercrime. It adds provisions to the Act describing cyber threat intelligence as "information in the possession of an element of the intelligence community directly pertaining to a vulnerability of, or threat to, a system or network of a government or private entity, including information pertaining to the protection of a system or network from either "efforts to degrade, disrupt, or destroy such system or network".

In addition, CISPA requires the Director of National Intelligence to establish procedures to allow intelligence community elements to share cyber threat intelligence with private-sector entities and encourage the sharing of such intelligence.

CISPA Primer: click here

NOT UNTIL AFTER the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act is passed by the House that a little over a month later, on June 4th, 2012, Telcordia and its products were officially rebranded
as Ericsson.

It's important to emphasize because Ericsson as a Foreign Corporation handles it's end-point cybersecurity itself, meaning it is Crowdstrike and Telcordia al in one without any Government oversight.


In the process of integration, Telcordia's Advanced Technology Solutions business unit, the company's research arm, was rebranded as Applied Communication Sciences, and became a wholly owned subsidiary of Ericsson that operated operating independently on day-to-day operations pursuant to a proxy structure mandated by the U.S. government.

In October 2012, Applied Communication Sciences relocated its headquarters to Basking Ridge, New Jersey, occupying the former headquarters of AT&T Wireless.

We are working on a followup report concerning iconectiv sitting in the exact same data centers that AT&T once occupied.

So let's recap,
Since 2008, Ericsson is known to be trading with an enemy state in Iran.

The SEC knew.
The IRS knew.
The State Department knew.
The Executive Office knew.
U.S. authorities knew because Ericsson was cooperating with the Justice Department investigation in 2013.

Swedish authorities knew because they signed a bi-lateral trade treaty with Iran in 2008.

Also in 2013, the FCC put the Local Number Portability Administrator contract up for bid. Neustar and Telcordia (Ericsson) were the only two bidders.

The contract was granted to Telcordia (Ericsson) over 7 years for $1 Billion.

One concern was that the FCC didn’t include national security requirements in the initial bid process.

  • FCC Deal With Foreign-Owned Company Raises Security, Transparency Concerns

The Government knew what Ericsson was up to which we now know was sponsoring and funding ISIS activities in lraq as their CEO admitted to. Yet our Government chose to conveniently ignore national security requirements in the initial bid process for a contract that controls 911 Emergency Service Portability! How about the timing of the Justice Department deferred action agreement with Ericsson. What happens between 2013 until December 6th, 2019 (when the $1B fine is finally announced)?

Enter iconectiv, known as Bellcore after its establishment in the United States in 1983 as part of the break-up of the Bell System, the company's name changed to Telcordia Technologies after a change of ownership in 1996.

The Telecommunications act of 1996 mandated the Local Number Portability Administrator (LNPA) for the United States.

In February 2013, Ericsson announced that its interconnection business, known previously as Telcordia Interconnection Solutions, had been renamed iconectiv.

It covers such areas as device theft and counterfeit prevention, number portability, information ser- vices, numbering and addressing, mobile messaging and spectrum management.

Telcordia was created in October 1983, as Central Services Organization as part of the 1982 Modification of Final Judgement that broke up the Bell System. Later, it received the name Bell Communications Research, Inc. Bellcore was a consortium established by the Regional Bell Operating Companies upon their separation from AT&T.

In 1996, the company was provisionally acquired by Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC). The sale was closed in 1997. The company no longer had any ownership connection with the Bell regional companies, and the name was officially changed to Telcordia Technologies, Inc.

During this time, Ericsson maintained its corporate presence in Plano, Texas and iconectiv's corporate presence in New Jersey.

  • June 11th, 2013Snowden Leaks

In June 2013, The Guardian reported the first leak based on top secret documents that then 29 year old Edward Snowden stole from the National Security Agency. The Guardian publishes its first exclusive based on Snowden's leak, revealing a secret court order showing that the US government had forced the telecoms giant Verizon to hand over the phone records of millions of Americans. Current Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg led Ericsson between 2010 and mid-2016 —or six months prior to when these activities were alleged to have stopped when he abruptly resigned following several underperforming quarters. Vestberg was at Ericsson for 19 years, and replaced Carl-Henric Svanberg, who left Ericsson to become chairman at BP.

In 2015, iconectiv won a contract procured by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to operate the Number Portability Administration Center (NPAC). The service had been operated by Neustar Inc. for 18 years.

Effective January 1, 2016, iconectiv was awarded the contract from CTIA to provide Common Short Code (CSC) Registry Services.

  • July 31st, 2015CTIA Announced New Strategic Partner iconectiv for Common Short Code Registry Services

  • September 21st, 2016iconectiv moves headquarters to Bridgewater, New Jersey.

  • May 29th, 2018NAPM Announces Completion of Transition to iconectiv

Also working on Neustar's behalf is Hogan Lovells, Inc.

Hogan Lovells deserves it's very own video. For now, it should be noted that:

  • Loretta Lynch was made Partner while working with the Washington-headquartered international law firm
    Hogan & Hartson LLP from March 2002 through April 2010.
  • The firm would curiously change its name to Hogan & Lovells U.S., LLP in May of 2010 one month after Lynch's departure.
    (should look into what prompted the name change -follow the IP)
  • Cheryl Mills worked as an associate at the Washington law firm of+ son. While there, she represented school districts seeking to achieve racial integration per Brown v. Boa cation, Mills was also mixed up in Vince Foster's "suicide" & the Whitewater scandal.
  • Hogan & Hartson/Hogan & Lovells was and has remained FARA registered to represent Saudi Arabia dating back to 2009.
  • Mills has been a Director of the Clinton Foundation while receiving Donations from Hogan & Lovells
  • Hogan & Hartson’s New York-based partner Howard Topaz was the tax lawyer who filed income tax returns for Bill and Hillary Clinton beginning in 2004.
  • Hogan & Hartson filed initial patents in 2004 for SPAMTRAQ (eventually abandoned) which has been linked to Hillary's private email system, Clinton used a spam filtering program MXLogic, Inc.
  • Hogan & Hartson employed Gold Star Father Khizr Khan, there he worked on the EB5 travel visa program.

The Clinton Email investigation started in the Eastern District of New York (EDNY) where Telcordia is located, but was moved to the Southern District of New York (SDNY).

So how corrupt is the SDNY?

SDNY - Ericsson Foreign Corrupt Practices Act Investigation (Judge Allison Nathan)
SDNY -Weiner evidence collection
SDNY - Clinton Foundation Investigation
SDNY - Epstein evidence collection
SDNY - Ghislaine Maxwell Case (Judge Allison Nathan)
SDNY - Trump Tax Returns
SDNY - SEC v Ripple Labs

Barrack Obama made the appointment of SDNY Judge Allison Nathan, upon the recommendation of senator Chuck Schumer.

Crazy as it seems, it's al connected. Representing Neustar and Rodney Joffe before the FCC "against" Telcordia (Ericsson) is none other than indicted Perkins Coie Attorney Michael Sussman.

Very interesting to note is the fact that partner and attorney at Perkins Coie Michael Sussman is a Cyber Security Attorney w/ Trust Group Access as well as a top level security clearance. His Attorney-Client Privilege and friends in high places could potentially issue stand-down orders to anyone attempting to investigate this fraud.


Ericsson is completely entrenched in our telecommunications networks and infrastructure. They control our 911 Emergency Service Portability contract and work with local law enforcement officials and the FBI to provide access to our phone conversations in real time.

The fact that they are a foreign corporation means there is no oversight.
Because they are a private institution, FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) does not apply to them. They handle their own cloud data infrastructure (similar to AWS) along with end-point and cyber security, which is al included in-house through Ericsson's EMS or Ericsson Management System.

The fact that Ericsson holds so much power over our countries network infrastructure and other contracts should be absolutely alarming! If Ericsson were to get hacked, that would make the hack an internal issue that our Government can do nothing about. If they were willing to fund and sponsor ISIS what else would they be willing to do?

Do they have to abide by the US Constitution or Uniform Commercial Code?

Key players mentioned in this report are Rodney Lance Joffe (subject of investigation for fraud) and Michael Sussman who has been indicted for lying and is currently pending trial in John Durham's Special Counsel investigation.

Both Sussman and Joffe were involved in the contract negotiation process before the FCC regarding the 911 emergency services portability contract.

Call To Action

Curating these reports is only half the battle. They need to be spread to the masses in order to educate and compel the people into action. This is where YOU come in. Here’s how you can help:

1. Take the report to your:

  • Local Fire Chief/Department
  • Police Chief/Department
  • County Sheriff
  • Congressman
  • Local News stations
  • Local and Federal politicians

2. Ask them to sign off on receiving it

3. Take pictures and share to Social Media and use the hashtags


5. Tag @ElonMusk everyday for a month
6. Tag your local politicians
7. Create memes
8. Share videos discussing what you’ve learned


Implementing a proper feedback loop that takes into consideration what the reaction to this information was will be very important.

Getting visibility on Social Media will not be easy but it is possible to break through with enough willpower and effort.

The MSM would love nothing more than for you to take this story and forget about it.
There is no bigger story than Ericsson and its connection to John Durham's Special Counsel.

John Durham's Special Counsel is still OPEN & ACTIVE. That means the investigation is ONGOING.

The connections from Ericsson to Rodney Joffe, Michael Sussman, the DNC, DNS, Neustar, Telcordia Technologies, Amazon, Amazon Web Technologies, Google etc.
