BREAKING: CCDH CEO Imran Ahmed Violates Chatham House Rule, Refuses to Cooperate In Response to Congressional Inquiry

Views 1843

Jim Jordan's Congressional inquiry into the UK-based, dark money-funded, 'non profit' front group -- The Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH) -- launched on August 3rd has already produced striking results, and appears to indicate that CCDH is unraveling under the intense pressure and scrutiny of its "insider" status and dealings.

On August 17th, CCDH responded to an investigation conducted by Jim Jordan, chairman of the Committee on the Judiciary, to produce internal communications regarding possible collusion with the US government and Big Tech platforms to illegally suppress the First Amendment rights of Americans, with a letter drafted by their newly retained legal representative Andrew D. Herman from the lawfirm Lawrence & Bundy. 

Herman's letter written on behalf and in defense of CCDH, attempted to push back and deny Jordan's allegations, yet inadvertently reinforced their veracity, as well as adding new evidence supporting the underlying rationale for the Congressional inquiry. 

In the three page letter, a copy of which you can access here, Herman acknowledged the seriousness of the allegations against his client, and suggested that Jordan's Congressional inquiry was "confused" about the role CCDH plays in "combatting online and and disinformation," and that "we feel compelled to set the record straight." 

The letter's strangely incoherent argument begins by citing the notoriously fraudulent and defamatory report published by CCDH against the following 12 Americans [note: there are actually 13 named in the report, but they sloppily miscounted], myself included, titled "The Disinformation Dozen: Why platforms must act on twelve leading online anti-vaxxers":

  1. Joseph Mercola

  2. Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

  3. Ty and Charlene Bollinger 

  4. Sherri Tenpenny

  5. Rizza Islam,

  6. Rashid Buttar

  7. Erin Elizabeth

  8. Sayer Ji

  9. Kelly Brogan

  10. Christiane Northrup, MD

  11. Ben Tapper, DC

  12. Kevin Jenkins.

In the letter, Herman describes his client as follows:  

"As stated in CCDH's report on disinformation cited by the letter, CCDH is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization "that seeks to disrupt the architecture of online hate and misinformation.  Most fundamentally, as CCDH's website explains, the organization "works to stop the spread of online hate and disinformation through innovative research, public campaigns and policy advocacy." 

In the next paragraph, Herman describes CCDH as "nonpolitical," yet simultaneously acknowledges CCDH "collaborated with government officials from both Republican and Democratic administrations." Herman's description of CCDH's intention to wield influence and curry favor from both sides of the political spectrum as "nonpartisan" is disingenious at best. It would be far more appropriate to describe this as hyper-political than "nonpartisan" behavior. Herman writes: 

"As an Internal Revenue Code 501(c)(3) charitable entity, CCDH takes seriously its obligations to remain nonpolitical and nonpartisan. To that end, CCDH has collaborated with governmental officials from both Republican and Democratic administrations. 

Continuing in this strange line of reasoning, Herman attempts to 'defend' CCDH's purportedly non-governmental status as far as influence and funding, by showcasing their CEO Imran Ahmed's extraordinary access to some of the most powerful people in the world:

"For example, during the Trump administration, the Chief Executive of CCDH, Imran Ahmed, was invited by President Trump's Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism to appear with other speakers, including then-Secretary of State Mike Pompeo—along with other U.S. and foreign officials, including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and British Conservative Party politician Michael Gove—in a virtual conference to combat the troubling rise of online antisemitism."

Even more noteworthy, is what follows next. Herman reveals that CCDH's CEO Imran Ahmed,

"...recently met with Linda Yaccarino, the Chief Executive Officer of X Corp., to discuss its "trust and safety" efforts in a meeting subject to Chatham House rules.  In that meeting, held on June 29, 2023, Ms. Yaccarino also invited Mr. Ahmed to meet personally with her—a meeting that has not been scheduled. CCDH has engaged in similar discussions with other platforms over the last few years, including a recent meeting with officials from Meta. CCDH participates in such meetings without fear or favor because the organization neither receives any money from any social media company nor participates in any standing bodies organized by social media companies, for example, a "Trust and Safety Council" or similar groupings."

Imran's secretive meeting with Linda Yaccarino has profound implications. First, it provides further evidence that Imran recently enjoyed unique 'insider' status within Twitter 2.0, continuing from what we saw with pre-acquisition Twitter 1.0, where CCDH was steering twitter's Covid-related misinformation policies and directing the deplatforming of the "disinformation dozen." Indeed, we've recently reported on previous investigations by Kris Ruby on how CCDH was one of only a few key organizations, including the CCDH, Law Enforcement, and the FBI, who provided the AI-driven NLP censorship lists to Twitter in order to flag as "misinformation" and "disinformation" concerns related to COVID policies and the safety and effectiveness of mRNA vaccines. These matters should be front and center in any investigation that looks at CCDH's role in contributing to the censorship of Americans; not just 12 so-called "disinformation dozen," but the millions who were algorithmically suppressed by CCDH through their influence on Twitter's censorship algorithms.  

Another key implication of the above statement is that Imran and Yaccarino are part of small, powerful and secretive group of powerbrokers, who adhere to the Chatham House rule; an oath of non-attribution related to private meetings that operate throughout many of the UK's most elite and powerful institutions, and are used internationally by organizations like the Bilderberg group, and the Council on Foreign Relations.

For background, London-based Chatham House is also known as The Royal Institute of International Affairs. It is the originator of the Chatham House Rule, and is a think tank funded by the likes of the Gates Foundation, the US government, the UK government, and many other extremely powerful corporations, NGOs, and governmental agencies.

This singular rule was created in 1927 and its most recent refinement from 2002 states: 

"When a meeting, or part thereof, is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed."

Most notable about Herman's letter, and the disclosure that Imran Ahmed and Twitter/X CEO observe the Chatham House Rule, is that Imran actually broke it by disclosing he met with Linda. 

Why would Imran "out" a fellow insider in such a flagrant manner? Violations of this kind can have serious consequences as far as compromising trust and confidentiality within organizations where the Chatham rule is observed religiously. Is this a reflection of how desperate Imran and CCDH are, given they are under multiple, simultaneous forms of scutiny and processes of imminent compelled disclosure? I believe that may be the case. 

For more information on the significance of Chatham House, and the history behind it, below excerpts from the work of Dean Henderson: 

"The East India Company spearhead would morph into Chatham House, which houses the Royal Institute for International Affairs – a parent company of the US Council on Foreign Relations. The names had changed, but the bloodline stayed the same.

From their City of London headquarters, the royals would concentrate their efforts going forward on concealing their power, launching a series of "scientific" institutions, funding certain pro-capitalist philosophers, and transforming the brutish East India Company into the more gentile and refined Chatham House. p.55  

Probably the most powerful of these is the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA), also known as Chatham House. Founded in 1920, its stated mission is to provide commentary on world events and offer solutions to global challenges.

In fact, it is the driving force when it comes to the foreign policy of the UK and its Commonwealth underlings. Its US affiliate is the Council on Foreign Relations, which serves the same role in shaping US foreign policy. Other national affiliates do the same – including the Australian Institute of International Affairs, Canadian International Council, German Council on Foreign Relations, Netherlands Institute of International Relations, Pakistan Institute of International Affairs, and the Singapore Institute of International Affairs.

The current obsession at Chatham House is support for arming Ukraine in the war against Russia. Prior to that, it was instrumental in shaping Covid-19 lockdown policies and vaccination mandates around the world. It works closely with the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), the world's oldest defense and security think tank, founded in 1831 by Duke of Wellington Sir Arthur Wellesley, who descended from the old Venetian banker Welser clan. The current president of RUSI is Prince Edward, Duke of Kent, who openly backed Adolf Hitler. p 71  

This came just four years after the founding of the Business Roundtable in London in 1909 by Lord Nathan Rothschild, Lord Alfred Milner, and South African colonizer-extraordinaire, Cecil Rhodes. Rhodes founded DeBeers, that to this day remains a global diamond monopoly, as well as the old HongKong-turned-Dubai money laundry known as Standard Chartered Bank

The Business Roundtable hatched a plan to secretly extend Pax Britannica by allowing local elections, but continuing Crown control of nations through ownership of their respective central banks. The Business Roundtable essentially merged with remnants of the old East India Company to become Chatham House or the Royal Institute of International Affairs (RIIA), which was officially founded in 1920. The RIIA is a registered charity of the Crown. Chatham House is a "Crown charity".

Today's news cycle focused primarily on the letter by Lawrence & Bundy on behalf of CCDH, with only one report by the Washington Post indicating that CCDH did not comply with Jim Jordan's request. According to the Washington Post's report

"House Judiciary Committee spokeswoman Nadgey Louis-Charles said in a statement to The Post that CCDH did not produce "a single document," and she added that the nonprofit is "clearly acting in bad faith with this investigation.

"If they want to 'set the record straight,' they should have complied with our request," she said.

CCDH's lack of cooperation may have serious consequences, including imminent subpoena of CCDH's CEO and other staff or employees. This is a developing story, and we will report further on it in greater detail as new information surfaces.
