Radioactive object found near homes at Hunters Point shipyard

Jason Fagone and Cynthia Dizikes Sep. 13, 2018 Updated: Sep. 14, 2018 9:39 a.m. San Francisco Chronicle

Approximate location of the deck marker located just outside the submarine barracks where the workers who cleaned the radiation on ships sent to Hunters Point Shipyard after the nuclear tests in the pacific were cleaned. Ironically the builder ( Lennar) of the New Construction had their onsite headquarters in one of these barracks where the nuclear radiation contaminated workers ate their lunch. I wonder if their workers knew they were headquartered on one of the most nuclear contaminated buildings on the site? Generally they were designed to be a buffer zone between the contaminated portions of the base where workers would shower and change clothes after they spent the day sandblasting the radiation off of the ships. Eventually the Navy gave up on the ships that were the target of the nuclear blasts and sank them off the coast of most of the ports on the west coast of the US.

The USS Indianapolis that was cleaned at Hunters Point and then sunk at what is now the Monterey Bay National Marine Sanctuary. The Navy stuffed the ship with thousands of barrels of nuclear waste when they sent it to the bottom of the Bay and they also dumped the barrels off the Farallon Islands where unfortunately they are only a few hundred feet in depth well within the range of fishing vessels for the Bay Area.

The Article:
“A highly radioactive object has been discovered at the former Hunters Point Naval Shipyard next to a housing area that has been declared safe and free of radioactive contamination for more than a decade, The Chronicle has learned. The finding is the latest problem at San Francisco’s most ambitious redevelopment project in a century — an effort to transform a 500-acre Superfund waste site into a bustling waterfront neighborhood of 12,000 homes.”

“The housing area is known as Parcel A. The California Department of Public Health is scanning it for radioactivity after revelations that employees of the Navy’s main cleanup contractor, Tetra Tech, faked radiation measurements in other parts of the shipyard. Parcel A residents and city officials demanded a test after whistle-blowers and media reports raised the possibility that some of those problems may have extended to Parcel A, where 300 housing units have been completed and an additional 150 are under construction.But the discovery of a radium device is startling because the city and multiple government agencies have said for years that any contamination on Parcel A was cleaned up long ago. The Navy transferred the 75-acre parcel to the city in 2004. The land is now owned by home builder and developer Lennar Corp. Public officials have repeatedly assured residents that no harmful radioactivity exists near their homes and they have nothing to worry about.”

Gavin Newsom cashed in on homeless in San Francisco by taxing them 85% to force them into living on the EPA Superfund site for nuclear radiation

The Tax rate in San Francisco on the homeless is 81.5% for the sighted and 85% for the blind. This is why it is a sanctuary city, the money goes to housing for the homeless and they put many of the homeless on the EPA superfund site Treasure Island which was the Navy’s school for (ABC) Atomic Biological and Chemical Warfare which was later changed to NBC for Nuclear Biological and Chemical Warfare. They taught sailors to clean up after these types of attacks. They had another school at the Aberdeen Proving Grounds on the East Coast near Baltimore.

According to Ballotpedia.org : “In 2002, Newsom sponsored San Francisco Proposition N, also known as the “Care Not Cash” initiative, which passed into law with 60 percent voter approval. The initiative reduced cash payments to the city’s homeless from between $320 and $395 a month to $59 a month, replacing the difference with the value of services such as housing, other forms of shelter, and meals.[8][9]

Newsom argued that the cash-only system of assistance led to drug- and alcohol-related deaths and that shifting from the cash-only system would free up money to provide more services to the homeless. Arguments against the initiative included that it would take money away from those who spent it on housing, substance abuse treatment, and other necessities without adequately replacing those services.[9]”

Funny how the money never went to more housing. The homeless in San Francisco are taxed by the city on their welfare checks.

Fallout How nuclear researchers handled — and grossly mishandled — the Cold War’s most dangerous radioactive substances at a top-secret lab inside the Hunters Point Shipyard. The same shipyard the city wants to remake as San Francisco’s newest neighborhood.

Link: Fallout” By Lisa Davis SF Weekly Wednesday, May 2 2001

Human experiments on San Francisco. What they did at The Naval Radiological Defense Laboratory at Hunters Point Shipyard including Human Experiments conducted on the unsuspecting public of San Francisco:

“Oversaw the dumping of huge amounts of contaminated sand and acid into San Francisco Bay after they were used in attempts to clean irradiated ships.

– Spread radioactive material on- and off-base, as if it were fertilizer, to practice decontamination. – Burned radioactive fuel oil in a boiler, discharging the smoke into the atmosphere.

– Sold radioactive ships as scrap metal to a private company in Alameda.

– Hung a source of cobalt-60, a nuclear isotope that emits high-energy electromagnetic radiation similar to X-rays, in San Francisco Bay for two weeks, apparently just to see what would happen.

– Conducted human experiments that included requiring people to drink radioactive elements.

– Experimented with significant amounts of a wide variety of long-lived radiological poisons, including plutonium, cesium, uranium, thorium and radium.

– Studied and disposed of thousands of irradiated mice, rats, dogs, goats, mules, and pigs, among other animals. At one point, the lab owned a ranch in Contra Costa County used specifically to raise animals for radiation testing.

– Sought permission to dump 1,000 gallons of liquid waste containing “small amounts of fission products” into San Francisco Bay, as an experiment to study how tidal action would dilute the radioactivity. The experiment was meant as a precursor to the disposal of 1,000 gallons of liquid radioactive waste in the bay every day. (The documents do not say whether the experiment or the daily dumping occurred.)”

The return of nine truckloads of radioactive asphalt was not mentioned by county health officials in their Feb. 23, 2015, inspection report filed with CalRecycle.

“”Allegations over falsified data and samples at the Hunter’s Point Superfund site go back years, but recent developments have thrust the issue back into the spotlight. The former shipyard hosted the Naval Radiological Defense Laboratory, which decontaminated ships that were exposed during atomic weapons tests and also researched the effects of radiation.”

“Left in the dirt” As tons of toxic soil piled up around them, San Francisco assured the cops at Hunters Point shipyard they were safe. But the city never knew, and still doesn’t.

Gavin Newsom the current Governor of California’s cousin Lawrence Pelosi was Lennar’s Vice President of Naval Base Acquisitions and Darius Anderson who was with the Treasure Island Community Development had a fundraiser where he retired 400,000 dollars of Gavin Newsom’s campaign debt according to Dr Sumchai. Lawrence Pelosi is related to Nancy Pelosi and Gavin Newsom. TDr. Sumchai states that Tetra Tech sent truckloads of waste to Keller Landfill near Pittsburg California in Contra Costa County making the problem a statewide issue and she raised this with then Governor Jerry Brown.

In the report it details how the cleanup decided to remove from the public record the elements that had short half lives under the theory that after so many years they would not be as much of a threat. Not only is this illogical, it doesn’t even begin to conceive of the idea of how half lives work. These elements are present, some of them are made by the other elements as they decay, they do not just disappear after the stated time frame. It is idiotic. and it is reckless. And these elements have to be cleaned up before any housing can be built which is impossible. The best solution is get all of the people away from these areas and figure out a way to stop the elements from polluting further.
Basically the Navy nuked San Francisco and for some strange reason, Pelosi, Feinstein, Newsom, Willie Brown and Kamala Harris have people living on these sites.

Navy does damage control for Pelosi, Feinstein and Lennar as it continues to claim Treasure Island and Hunters Point Shipyard are ‘safe’

Another $22 million down the rat hole?

“The U.S. Navy had its every-three-months dog and pony show at the Treasure Island Restoration Advisory Board (RAB) meeting on Tuesday, June 19, 2018. The previous meeting included a Tetra Tech representative and a loud confrontation, but this time Tetra Tech representatives were not on the panel since there are now two Tetra Tech managers in federal prison for falsifying the cleanup records at Hunters Point and an ongoing grand jury investigation with likely more sealed indictments that could lead to further criminal action against the top management of Tetra Tech.

Since the scandal blow-up, however, Congresswoman Pelosi has arranged to get another $42 million from the budget reconciliation bill for more retesting on formerly tested contaminated land in the Superfund site at Hunters Point Shipyard. This is after $1 billion has already been expended by the U.S. government to clean up Hunters Point Shipyard and Treasure Island, which are both Superfund sites.”

“Behind the continued effort to push forward with both the developments at Hunters Point Shipyard and Treasure Island are Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who have deep financial connections to this development of the Shipyard and Treasure Island. Feinstein’s husband, Richard Blum, financially pushed for the development; his company has the primary contract to build condos at Treasure Island. Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi’s nephew, Laurence Pelosi, was an executive of Lennar – in charge of real estate acquisitions – while she was pushing for the development and getting hundreds of millions for the “cleanup.””

“Former Mayor Willie Brown had been instrumental in arranging for the U.S. Navy to prepare the site to turn it over to the city for future million-dollar condos. In the meantime, they placed low income African American families and homeless on the Island.”
