United Airlines’ asbestos house of cards – OSHA falsely claims OIG investigated them

Kimberly Locey, Director of Administrative Programs, OSHA

In the latest chapter of United Airlines' asbestos house of cards, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is now falsely claiming that an investigation of corruption at OSHA's North Chicago office has been completed by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) in Chicago.

In her attempt to whitewash OSHA's complicity in the criminal cover-up of United's illegal asbestos removal and dumping, OSHA Director Kimberly Locey has made the false claim that the OIG in Chicago has done an investigation.

United Airlines’ asbestos cover-up: OSHA Director commits perjury

Well that was news to James Vanderberg, Special Agent in Charge of the OIG in Chicago, who knew nothing about this alleged investigation.

What Ms. Locey apparently did not know when drafting this letter is that I have been in communication with Special Agent Vanderberg and that I can unequivocally state that at no time did the OIG in Chicago investigate this case of public corruption at OSHA.

Oops! What now, Kim?

Well, now Ms. Locey wants to play hide and seek. Locey refuses to return phone calls from me and the person who made the latest allegations of systemic corruption at the North Chicago office of OSHA.

No surprise there.

However, I am a little surprised that Acting Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA, Loren Sweatt, has not taken the opportunity afforded to her to get out in front of this scandal. She is also not returning phone calls.

As for the OIG, James Vanderberg, call me. It's high time that you really do that investigation that OSHA director Locey falsely claims you have already done

What are you waiting for?

United Airlines’ asbestos cover-up: Department of Labor asks Judge to rule against himself!

Attorneys at the Department of Labor (DOL) have just hit the panic button in the case of Secretary of Labor, United States Department of Labor v. United Airlines, Inc.

Trying to conceal corruption within the agency, Dept. of Labor attorneys David Rutenberg, Allen Bean and Christine Heri have filed an absurd motion asking Administrative Law Judge Dennis Phillips to rule against himself and ignore his previous decision that the asbestos case against United Airlines would go to trial.

This desperate act on the part of DOL attorneys is due in part to the fact that they are in possession of documents and other material evidence that, if made public, would expose their complicity in committing fraud on the court.

So the DOL certainly does have good reason to panic.

But their sheer audacity may backfire on them.

Not only are they asking Judge Phillips to rule that his previous decision to go to trial was a mistake. They are also asking Phillips to completely ignore the overwhelming evidence that perjury and fraud have been committed by government officials in his very own courtroom.

Wow! That's a lot to ask of an OSHA Review Commision judge whose sole purpose as designated by Congress is to keep government powers in check.

In essence, DOL attorneys are asking Judge Phillips to commit fraud on his own court.

Bet that hurt to ask!

However, since that's what they did, perhaps the prudent thing for Judge Phillips to do at this point is to take the DOL's assertion that he lacks jurisdiction over fraud in his own court seriously, and request that the Department of Justice (DOJ) assist him in investigating the crimes being blatantly committed by the DOL right under his nose.

After all, the DOL attorneys are right about one thing: In public corruption cases, the DOJ does have jurisdiction.

What do ya say, U.S. Attorney Zachary Fardon?

Are you ready to take down some corrupt government officials?

Or is public corruption no longer a top priority?
