An active researcher into the US shadow government
Gorton studied Electrical Engineering at Yale University, and then Stanford University, and got an MBA from Harvard University. He began his career as an electrical engineer for Martin Marietta (now part of Lockheed Martin), and, following his interests in business, entered the world of fixed-income trading at Credit Suisse First Boston where he worked for 4½ years in the proprietary trading department  prior to launching his Lime Group of companies, which include LimeWire, a peer-to-peer file sharing client, Lime Brokerage (a stock brokerage), Tower Research Capital LLC (a hedge fund), and LimeMedical LLC (a medical software company). He was a key figure in Arista Records LLC v. Lime Group LLC.
Deep Politics Research
In 2006 he took a "passing interest" in the JFK assassination and has gradually become more and more active in this regard, as he traced consequent events through history. He is now an active researcher into deep politics. On the 50th anniversary of the assassination he sent his remarkable Document:Fifty Years of the Deep State out to his employees in Tower Research capital, and it was published together with two other incomplete essays on Gawker in 2014.

Mark Gorton has advanced a theory that the perpetrators of the JFK assassination formed a group which is still in active operation, which he terms "the Cabal". He suggests that not only is this Cabal a potent force in US politics but that that they continue to commit high crimes such as election fraud or mass murder as well as using assassination to remove their opponents and those who try to publicise their existence. In 2014 Gorton expressed fears that his life might be in danger because of the publication of his research about this cabal:
"Having these [below] documents suddenly appear on a blog like Gawker changes my risk profile in life. That being said, I do think that the truth needs to be told about what has happened to our democracy."
Gorton proposes that corruption in the US government is so widespread that a South African style truth commission is needed, in which earlier wrong doers make complete and full confessions of their past crimes in return for an amnesty from future prosecution.
“I am dedicated to recovering the good America that lives within the hearts of most Americans. Only when we recognize the errors of the past, can we see many of those same flaws in our society today and work to fix them.”

Quotes by Mark Gorton
|1993 World Trade Center bombing||“The 1993 WTC bombing created the necessary pretext for a massive engineering upgrade of the WTC complex. The purpose of the 1993 WTC bombing was not to bring down the WTC. A truck bomb could not bring down a structure as large as the WTC. The purpose of the 1993 WTC bombing was to create a rationale for a “security upgrade” of the WTC complex. And for this purpose, the 1993 WTC bombing succeeded perfectly. According to Alan Reiss, the PANYNJ’s World Trade Center Director, “After the 1993 bombing, we implemented a ten-year redevelopment program. We were spending a half a billion dollars on upgrades. It was an engineer’s dream”. After the 1993 bombing, the PANYNJ brought in Kroll Associates to do a “complete security analysis”. The executive director of the Port Authority emphasized the importance of Kroll’s work at the WTC by saying, “We have such confidence in [Kroll] that I have followed every one of their recommendations. The person who led Kroll’s work on the WTC was Brian Michael Jenkins.”||Document:Fifty Years of the Deep State|
|George H. W. Bush||“I have seen no evidence directly linking George H.W. (Poppy) Bush directly to the 9/11 attacks, but just as physicists can detect the presence of a black hole by the actions of other bodies around it, so the massive force of George H. W. Bush in the 9/11 op can be inferred. Many people extremely close to Poppy Bush were actively involved in the 9/11 op, including: his son oldest son, George W. Bush; his youngest son, Marvin Bush; Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Prince Bandar, the Iran Contra network, and the BCCI network.”||2013|
|George H. W. Bush||“The Enterprise was a massive 5000 person large hierarchical criminal organization with George H. W. Bush as its CEO. The Enterprise was a multifaceted criminal conglomerate that ran a large number of criminal activities including: drug trafficking, arms trafficking, savings and loan fraud, securities fraud, oil and gas fraud, insurance fraud, and real estate fraud. Embedded within the national security infrastructure and protected from prosecution by corrupted enforcement agencies like the SEC, FBI, DEA, ATF, etc., The Enterprise embarked on a massive criminal romp.”||2013|
|George H. W. Bush||“George H. W. Bush was such a pivotal deep politician because he bridged two separate worlds. He was a deep CIA insider, a lifelong intelligence operative, and he also came from an elite family and was intimately tied to the East Coast business elite. His father, Prescott, had been managing partner at the Wall Street investment bank Brown Brothers Harriman and also a US Senator. The Bush and Rockefeller families were very close. George H.W.’s grandfather Samuel had been business partners with John D. Rockefeller’s brother, and over the generation the Bush and Rockefeller clans had remained close. Empowered with these dual networks, George H. W. Bush could work within the dark nether-realms of the intelligence community, as well as, the Republican power elite.”||2013||Document:Fifty Years of the Deep State|
|HSCA||“Despite fairly effective efforts within Congress to sabotage the HSCA, the HSCA posed large problems for the Cabal. Honest investigators within the HSCA were more or less on the trail of the conspirators in JFK's killing. Many individuals involved in the Coup of ’63 were scheduled to testify before the HSCA. In order to prevent these actors from testifying, the death squads operated by the Cabal worked overtime. 21 people involved in the Coup who were subpoenaed to testify before the committee died under mysterious circumstances. Many died just before their scheduled testimony. For example, in 1977 seven senior FBI officials called to testify at the HSCA died within a six month period.”||2013||Document:Fifty Years of the Deep State|
|Statecraft||“The financial frauds conducted by The Enterprise were designed to implicate, enrich and entrap a huge swath of the political class in DC. Fraudulent securities or oil and gas deals were offered to friends to enrich them and enemies to entrap them. In some cases, enemies were suckered in with easy profits on small investments only to be bankrupted when larger fraudulent investments imploded. By the time that the Iran Contra scandal made the headlines, such a large number of congressmen and DC insiders were implicated that any attempt to expose the scale of the scandal would have resulted in a near wholesale implication of the political class. In many ways, this endemic corruption is what makes political reform in Washington so difficult, the level of corruption is so pervasive that the political class has no choice but to cover for each other’s crimes or risk mutually assured destruction.”||22 November 2013||Document:Fifty Years of the Deep State|
|US/Deep state||“I call for a Truth Commission to publicly and openly uncover the horrible secrets buried away behind walls of government secrecy. A Truth Commission would provide an opportunity for all people to come forward and confess crimes related to the Cabal... A Truth Commission could be a very effective way to purge the evil of the Cabal from our system. As hard as it may be to believe, things are so bad in the United States, we need a Truth Commission.”||November 2013|
|Watergate coup||“The traditional story of Watergate is one where Nixon does a bunch of bad things, gets caught, tries to cover it up, and is forced to resign; however, in reality Watergate was a plot by the Cabal behind the Coup of ’63 and corrupt elements within the CIA and military intelligence to depose Nixon. By 1973, the original leaders of the Cabal were dying off: Allen Dulles died in 1969, J Edgar Hoover in 1972, and LBJ in 1973. The death of their leaders created a power vacuum at the top of the Cabal, and as the Cabal was fighting off threats from the outside world, an internal battle was taking place for control of the Cabal and ultimately the control of power in America. Three factions fought for power: a network of old boys from the OSS (the Office of Strategic Services, the WWII precursor to the CIA), a group within the Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), and a group within the CIA led by George H. W. Bush. The Watergate Coup served several purposes, but perhaps its most lasting impact was to ensconce George H. W. Bush as the new head of the Cabal. George H. W. Bush’s father was Prescott Bush, who was the best friend of Allen Dulles. Dulles dominated the CIA from 1953 until he was fired by JFK in the wake of the Bay of Pigs disaster. Like his father, George H. W. Bush was a graduate of Yale and a member of Skull and Bones. In a world where connections and pedigree mattered, George H. W. Bush was the crown prince within the CIA."”||November 2013||Document:Fifty Years of the Deep State|
