Los Angeles, CA.
FULL DISCLOSURE NETWORK(tm) presents a full half-hour program covering the role of the California Department of Toxic Substance Control (DTSC) engaging in a public relations campaign to enable the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) to complete a massive public school project on a notorious toxic and hazardous site. The DTSC action was seen as a way to help LAUSD justify the $1/2 billion dollar expenditure of taxpayer funds on the doomed Belmont Learning Center Complex.
Watch this Free 24 min video http://www.fulldisclosure.net/flash/417_BelmontSafe.htm that features exclusive video clips from a January 19, 2005 DTSC community hearing, including testimony from experts. This is one of two-part Full Disclosure cable and internet TV program reveals what some people feel is a conspiracy to hide government wrong doing . Featured on 43 cable systems and the Internet "On Demand" 24/7.
The Belmont Learning Center Complex (recently renamed Central High #11 or Vista Hermosa) is located on a 35-acre site in downtown Los Angeles, formerly known as the Los Angeles Oil Field. The site is plagued by toxic hazards such as methane gas and hydrogen sulfide that are considered a highly dangerous threat to children, teachers and others who are exposed.
Shown on the Full Disclosure video is Hamid Saebfar, DTSC Division Chief (School Property Evaluation/Clean Up), lauding the long standing cooperation between his agency and the LAUSD. His remarks were refuted by Anthony Patchett, former Head of the Environmental Crimes Division, Office of L. A County District Attorney who also served as Chief of the Belmont investigation “Nothing could be further from the truth” he told Emmy Award winning host Leslie Dutton. Patchett went on to say DTSC has been out of the loop on Belmont since 1991. They are supposed to be a watchdog agency but instead are now promoting the LAUSD “passive” remediation plan, which in the case of volatile organic chemicals (VOC) contamination, that can never be remediated due to close proximity of groundwater.
Also, responding to the danger posed by hydrogen sulfide and earthquake faults was Dr. Debra Otis, Sr. Toxicologist for the DTSC and Dr. Kaye H. Kilburn (MD), noted author, who holds the Ralph Edgington Chair, Keck School of Medicine at USC. Dr. Kilburn commented on chemical brain injuries and described the 1992 earthquake at Long Beach and Wilmington where permanent and irreversible brain damage occurred to employees and school children who were exposed.

CITIZENS WORRY OVER CORRUPTED DATABASE
Appearing in the video are representatives from the ”Newporters for Responsible Government“ (NRG) Spokesman John Buttolph, Campaign Organizer Tom Billings, and Initiative Coordinator Liz Vitale. The NRG group describes a corrupted voter registration database that was provided to them by the Voter Registrar’s Office that caused confusion and delay on their signature gathering. The group is attempting to qualify an initiative in the City of Newport Beach that would mandate voter approval on COPs (Certificate of Participation Bonds) to finance public projects. NRG expressed concerns in two letters to the Registrar, requesting fairness be exercised when validating their petitions and signatures.
CUSD RECALL CAMPAIGN AGREES
Also in the video, corruption of the voter database was substantiated by leaders of the CUSD Recall Campaign; Tom Russell, Spokesman and Jennifer Beall, campaign organizer, who describe in the video the similar problems they encountered with the Orange County Registrar’s office.

Los Angeles, CA—Nationally syndicated columnist and author Georgie Anne Geyer made predictions of the demise of American Citizenship in a 1996 television interview. She described these predictions also in her book entitled “Americans No More”. The entire thirty minute interview is available FREE "on Demand", 24/7 at the URL: : http://www.fulldisclosure.net/flash/182_Geyer.htm as a public service of the Full Disclosure Network . Some of the issues covered in the interview are:
CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY IS BEING UNDERMINED BY FAR LEFT & RIGHT
According to Geyer, the role of civic responsibility in America is being undermined by the far left and the far right. Major corporate foundations, including the Ford Foundation, many of whom are located in Singapore, Bellagio, Rome and Berlin are providing funding to radical ethnic groups who don’t care about the American working class, or American citizenship.
DEMANDS FOR TAXPAYER BENEFITS TO ILLEGALS
She went on to say that the racial groups are using the courts to fight citizenship issues such as taxpayer benefits for illegal aliens.As a former foreign correspondent Georgie Anne Geyer traveled to many nations, covering world leaders. She told Emmy Award-winning Full Disclosure™ Emmy Award winning host Leslie Dutton the historical importance of maintaining national borders.
PRESIDENTIAL DUTY TO SECURE THE BORDERS
When referring to the problems with the U. S. Border, she said, “the first duty of the U. S. President is to secure the borders of the nation.”
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA UNGOVERNABLE (1996)
She went on to say Southern California was “ungovernable, because it is incoherent and thus ungoverned.” “If you don’t know who the people are, you don’t know what they’re doing here or where their commitment is, your not governing yourself,” she said.
NON CITIZENS VOTING ALL OVER THE COUNTRY
Geyer also told Dutton the most shocking thing to Americans is that non-citizens are voting all over the country. “There are some towns like Tacoma Park, Maryland that have voted to have non-citizens vote in local elections.” As for the “dumbing down” of the citizenship test, she said “We have allowed our schools to become bereft of civic education and the citizenship test is just a reflection of that.”
