“Senator Kamala Harris who is running for president of the United States was charged with obstruction of justice and involved in a corruption cover-up at the San Francisco Treasure Island shipyard by two former residents Andre Patterson and Felita Sample. They both accused Kamala Harris of knowing about the dangerous radiation and toxins on the island that were poisoning the residents but kept quiet about it after promising them she would deal with it after her election to the Senate.”
High-level technicians claim they documented numerous violations that put public health and safety at risk
High-level technicians claim they documented numerous violations that put public health and safety at risk By Vicky Nguyen, Liz Wagner and Felipe Escamilla Published May 19, 2014 at 5:31 PM | Updated at 2:45 PM PDT on May 23, 2014
“Taxpayers have spent nearly a quarter of a billion dollars on the toxic cleanup of Hunters Point, a prime piece of land along the southeastern shore of San Francisco. The former naval shipyard, which was once used as a research and testing lab for nuclear weapons, is now undergoing a renaissance. The city plans to turn the 800-acre site into a development mecca complete with new parks, retail stores and homes.
It is a massive project that’s decades in the making, but two high-level former technicians with intimate knowledge of the remediation effort say the cleanup is being botched and that the health and safety of the public is at risk because of it. Both say they wouldn’t live in or even visit the development planned for the site. In February, the Investigative Unit exposed that current workers also question the radiological cleanup of Hunters Point.”
“Federal OSHA lawyer Darrell Whitman who also is a steward of AFGE Local 2371 has been speaking out in defense of health and safety whistleblowers in OSHA Region 9. As a result he has been retaliated against. A press conference was held on February 27, 2015 with Whitman and other whistleblowers and health and safety advocates to support him and all others who are fighting to protect health and safety on the job and in the communities.”
San Francisco built public housing on two EPA Superfund Sites that contain Nuclear Radiation from the cleaning of US Ships damaged by Atomic and Hydrogen bomb tests in the Pacific.
“California Senator Kamala Harris who is running for President of the United States was accused on 3/14/19 with obstruction of justice and involved in a corruption cover-up at the contaminated radioactive SF Treasure Island site by two former residents Felita Sample and Andre Patterson. They were attending a press conference by nuclear health and safety whistleblowers who worked for Tetra Tech which was involved in the falsification of testing results in the $1 billion dollar Eco-fraud scandal. This is the largest Eco Fraud in the United States but has not been covered by the major corporate media. Sample and Patterson are both cancer survivors who say that their cancers were directly caused by the highly contaminated Naval nuclear training site at the island. Kamala Harris who was formerly San Francisco District Attorney and California Attorney General before becoming a Senator, was personally aware of the charges of falsification of testing at SF Treasure Island and also the Hunters Point shipyard. While in her position in San Francisco and as California Attorney General she refused to conduct any investigation about the illegal firing of 6 Tetra Tech whistleblowers as well as other whistleblowers at the shipyard. Two managers of Tetra Tech are presently in prison for engaging in falsification of testing of radioactive material by Tetra Tech. Senator Kamala Harris has remained completely silent about this massive $1 billion criminal fraud scandal despite being personally contacted by residents and whistleblowers. She has also been silent about continued Federal contracts to Tetra Tech and it’s subsidiaries despite the massive criminal conspiracy to defraud the US government and public about the radioactive clean-up at Hunters Point Naval shipyard and Treasure Island.
“In San Francisco Hunters Point shipyard on February 8, 2017, the US Navy, EPA, California Department of Toxic Substances and San Francisco Health Department held an orchestrated dog and pony show to assure the people of San Francisco and the Hunters Point/Bayview community that they are properly protecting the people after health and safety whistleblowers have exposed the falsification of testing at the site for years.
After the 2nd world ships were tested in the Marshall Islands with nuclear bombs, brought to the shipyard and sandblasted with the resulting radioactivity being dispersed in the bay and area around the military site and housing in Hunters Point. It later became a Superfund site and under the Brownfield Act developers were given the land for housing and other development.
Additionally the African American community and their children have suffered serious and wide spread health problems including cancer and a 50% rate of asthma in children.
Government agencies are supposed to be responsible for ensuring the health and safety of the highly dangerous Superfund radioactive toxic site have yet they have refused to call for criminal investigations and prosecution of Tetra Tech and Test America which were involved in bullying, harassing and terminating employees that spoke out about the systemic falsification of the tests of the toxics and dangerous materials at the site. SF Supervisor Malia Cohen said she needed to see a lawyer to investigate whether there should be a criminal investigation of corruption and illegal terminations of whistleblowers and trusted the Navy. San Francisco city officials including the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and politicians including Mayor Ed Lee, Nancy Pelosi and Dianne Feinstein have also refused to call for any hearings or investigations of the violation of health and safety rights and illegal terminations of whistleblowers including Michael Madry, a quality control manager of Test America and Federal OSHA Whistleblower Protection Program investigator and lawyer Darrell Whitman who was fired by OSHA chief David Michaels and former Department of Labor DOL secretary Tom Perez. Whitman was investigating the retaliation of Test American whistleblower Michael Madry and was prevented from protecting him through a merit determination. These workers are still fighting for their jobs back and have gone to many of these agencies including the EPA and OSHA to address these issues and they have charged that top government officials including former DOL Secretary Tom Perez have been engaged in a criminal obstruction of justice to prevent an investigation of the collusion of these agencies with the companies that are terminating health and safety whistleblowers.”
“Hunters Point Tetra Tech safety inspectors spoke out on June 27, 2017 about the criminal conspiracy by the company to cover-up serious radiative soil and contamination of the community. They were bullied and terminated when they tried to stop the cover-up of health and safety dangers at not only Hunters Point but Treasure Island. Their lawyer David Anton has filed a lawsuit demanding that Tetra Tech’s permit with the NRC be revoked for defrauding the government with fake toxic reports.
Lawyer David Anton and Dr. Ahimsa Porter Sumchai also called for a criminal investigation by the San Francisco District Attorney Gacon and California Attorney General Xavier Becerra of Tetra Tech for criminal activities to cover-up the dangers of radioactive contaminants and toxic releases. Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi has covered up the criminal activity by Lennar Urban and Tetra Tech and members of her family work for Lennar Urban that are pushing these developments on radioactive dump sites.”
NBC Bay Area Investigative Unit article by Liz Wagner Article Link ‘Navy review finds “inconsistencies” in cleanup contractor’s radiation data and says a good portion of it is likely fraudulent.
The Navy has decided to retest all of the Hunters Point Shipyard for radiation after losing confidence in Tetra Tech, the contractor it hired to clean up contamination.
A yearlong review of Tetra Tech’s radiation data by Navy consultants found that nearly half of it may have been faked. The consultants found inconsistencies in Tetra Tech’s test results and the Navy said that a good portion of it is likely fraudulent.
The revelations are the latest setback for the shipyard, the superfund site along San Francisco’s southeastern waterfront that’s slated for major redevelopment, including homes, parks and shops.”
