Acknowledge It's Mine, and Save the country Billions
Rough draft ,
Dear Mr. President,
The purpose of this website is to get someone in the United States Government to determine whether the last five digits of the phone number noted in the above photograph has the last five digits of "25093" as I claim, or "85093" as AT&T claimed, in a Formal Complaint filed through the CPUC (California Public Utilities Commission).
The phone number received service through a phone line that was known to be defective. Nobody has disputed the fact.
If the phone number has the last five digits of "25093" as I claim, it means my phone number 462-5093 received service through a defective phone line from the very first day it was installed, and this is linked to other frauds to conceal that three out of four of the phone lines to my premises were defective for years, and this included both of my business phone lines.
If the phone number has the last five digits of "25093," it means AT&T committed numerous acts of perjury to avoid paying fines to the State of California (which could have exceeded $100 million dollars), and it allowed AT&T to avoid repairing its infrastructure, and it allowed AT&T to avoid paying the business losses caused by AT&T.
In legal terms, the phone number is an absolute. It is either absolutely my phone number (462-5093) or it absolutely isn't.
Another "absolute," is that absolutely no one at the CPUC is allowed to answer the question of whether or not AT&T lied to the CPUC. If you don't believe me, keep reading...
In April, 2012, the Executive Director of the CPUC told me that nobody at the CPUC (under the leadership of CPUC President, Michael Peevey), has the authority to determine whether or not AT&T lied in the Formal Complaint Process.
For other excerpts and the full conversations, which include the MP3 recordings, see this link: Clanon Conversations August 2011, April 2012
The recordings are legal. In November 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to review a decision by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals blocking the enforcement of an Illinois eavesdropping law.
The 1st and 7th circuit decisions mean that it is now technically legal to record on-duty police officers in every state in the country. The CPUC acts as the police to protect consumers, an, therefore, is not exempt from this decision.
So far, nobody in Government has been willing to make determination of whether or not AT&T committed fraud, including the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC), the FBI, my Congressman, my Senator, or the White House.
In 2009, an FBI Agent told me, "Attorney's Lie, Judges are corrupt. Let it go." The FBI agent probably didn't realize that the AT&T Attorney Answered the Formal Complaint,"Under Penalty of Perjury."
It is very rare for an Attorney to make a statement "Under Penalty of Perjury." But in the Answer to the Formal Complaint, the AT&T Attorney Answered the Complaint, "Under Penalty of Perjury."
Eight dead bodies, a fictional phone number, and a sham charity
The above circled phone number can now be linked to the death of eight people.
The California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) would not comment on the numbers in the photograph, nor would the CPUC investigate why a utility would knowingly use defective underground infrastructure to a consumer.
On September 9, 2010, an underground PG&E pipeline failed, causing a huge fire that killed 8 people, injured and burned dozens more, and destroyed 38 houses. This can be linked to the CPUC's "cozy" relationship with the Utilities it is suppose to regulate.
In a blog dated August 8, 2012, a person who stumbled across a $2 million money trail of corruption shows evidence that the CPUC conspired with Utilities to avoid paying fines to the California State General Fund. Instead of paying fines, the CPUC arranged for the Utilities to funnel money to a sham charity, CaliforniaALL. See: http://lesliebrodie.blog.co.uk/2012/08/08/
According to another blog, another $30 million of money was funneled to CCPF (California Consumer Protection Foundation). See:
The $32 million dollar money trail can be linked to ex-CPUC Commissioner Geoffry Brown.
Commissioner Brown was assigned to the Formal Complaint I filed in 2001. I now believe Geoffry Brown had corrupted the Formal Complaint, in order to funnel money to his sham charities and other entities.
Evidence that Commissioner Geoffry Brown was involved in the money laundering scheme is his Decision to refuse to impose fines upon the Utility for violations to Public Utility Law. An Email I received from Richard Smith (currently a CPUC Administrative Law Judge), states that the CPUC violated the Rule of Law by refusing to impose fines upon AT&T.
See: http://mikeandmabell.com/FBI/History-More_Info-2.html The Corrupt Judge and legal error
Logically, there was a reason to refuse to follow the Rule of Law. In my earliest conversations with the FBI (2007), the FBI told me it needed a money trail to prove corruption. I had no such knowledge of any money trail prior to 2012.
The blogs on the Leslie Brodie Report provide the money trail, and the motive to refuse to follow the Rule of Law, and the motive to fabricate fraudulant statements in the CPUC's Decision to my Formal Complaint. See: Mike and the FBI
Non-Existent seamless pipe
In the aftermath of the explosion, it was found that PG&E records fraudulantly stated the 30" diameter underground pipe, which was installed in the 1950's, was seamless.
According to experts, 30" diameter seamless pipe was not available at the time the pipe was installed.
In the preliminary investigations, it has been found that PG&E can't find a lot of records, including records of where $5 million went, which was appropriated to replace a section of the pipeline near the area that failed.
A Non-Existent phone number
According to AT&T, the above circled phone number, which received service through a phone line that was known to be defective, has the last five digits of "85093."
If the phone number has the last five digits of "25093", this proves AT&T committed a series of frauds to conceal problems in the underground infrastructure providing service to my premises.
An internal phone company document I photographed dated March 16, 2009 can be used to prove that no such phone number existed in my neighborhood.
If it is proven that a phone number with the last five digits of "85093," did not exist in my neighborhood, it can be linked to events that led to the PG&E pipeline explosion.
So far, nobody in government is willing to make the determination of whether the phone number has the last five digits of "25093" as I claim, or "85093" as a telecom Attorney claims. This includes corrupt CPUC Officials who have repeatedly helped public utilities conceal problems in the underground infrastructure, and the FBI, which was contacted by Congresswoman Tauscher on May 16, 2008. Congresswoman Tauscher, letter May 16, 2008
(Note: in November 2011, an FBI Special Agent finally admitted the FBI has a database that can prove AT&T committed perjury.)
After the FBI refused to respond to Congresswoman Tauscher's letter, her staff in Washington DC told me it would be up to the Executive Branch of Government to answer the question about the phone number, hence the website, www.APhoneNumberForThePresident.com
The biggest mistake of my life -- complaining about altered records
In March of 1997, I made the biggest mistake of my life. I filed an informal complaint through the California Public Utilities Commission, complaining about telecom executives altering records to conceal recurring problems in the underground infrastructure which affected my business phone lines. March 28, 1997
One of the executives I complained about was Linda Standen. Later, she went to work at PG&E -- this links at least one PG&E executive with a history of altering records.
Threats of Bodily Harm
As a result of filing the informal complaint in March of 1997, the telecom responded by accusing me of threatening its employees with bodily harm, and imposing Rule 11 upon me. April 3, 1997. An Attorney who looked at the letter told me it was a standard form letter written with the intent to intimidate me.
According to a conversation with CPUC employee, Marco Valenti, a lot of consumers were receiving similar letters from the Pacific Bell legal department, after filing informal complaints with the CPUC.
In 1997, Mr. Valenti did nothing to investigate this behavior.
I received a letter from Mr. Valenti in August, 2009. He is still behaving about the same as he was back in 1997. Email from CPUC CAB
Proof of Fraud
The above circled phone number, if proven to have the last five digits of "25093", proves that Linda Standen (and others) committed frauds to conceal problems in the underground infrastructure which provided service to my premises.
The phone number also provides legal proof that the telecom's claims that I threatened employees with bodily harm, was a fraud.
CPUC Formal Complaint -- Threats to kill, non-existent supporting documents, and non -xistent jargon.
In July 2001, I filed a Formal Complaint through the CPUC, complaining about recurring phone service problems. August 1 , 2001
In response to the Formal Complaint, the Telecom claimed the underground infrastructure was in good condition. The Telecom also claimed I repeatedly threatened to kill it's employees. August 31, 2001.
There are no police reports or other documents to support such claims, as required by company policy.
Recently, a source told me that jargon used in a document claiming I had threated to kill people, did not exist during the time period that AT&T claimed the letter was written.
Internal phone company documents, proof of fraud
A few days after the Telecom claimed there was nothing wrong with the underground infrastructure, four telecom repair trucks showed up. Four trucks and photographs of the first two acts of perjury
I photographed some of the internal documents the repair technicians were using. At the time, I didn't know the significance of the documents, but years later, I found out they proved that 3 out of 4 of my phone lines had been defective for years. http://www.mikeandmabell.com/359_hi-res.html
At the first Pre-hearing conference, I showed the internal documents to the telecom attorney who claimed I threatened to kill its employees. The telecom attorney broke out in a cold sweat -- at that moment, I knew the documents were very important.
Afterwards, the telecom never again stated I threatened to kill its employees, or that I threatened bodily harm upon its employees.
Altered documents and false definitions -- Obstruction of Justice
I could not find out the meaning of the documents because Attorneys altered documents and definitions to conceal the true meanings of the trouble code 98.
In addition AT&T claimed they could not find a document I photographed, which was later defined as a "log of defective cable pairs."
Definition of Document in Briefs
In Briefs, the telecom attorney described one of the documents I photographed as a Log of Defective Cable Pairs.
This "log of defective cable pairs" proved that my residential phone number, 462-5093, was defective since the first day it was connected to my premises -- indicating that the underground infrastructure was defective, and that costly repairs were required. To avoid paying fines to the State of California, the Telecom told the CPUC the phone number was not mine, and it had the last five digits of "85093 (See photo at top of page). "85093" A fictional phone number and a blatent act of perjury.
Other documents I photographed confirmed that my two business phone lines were defective (with a trouble code 98) on the day that the telecom Answered the Complaint. Other documents confirmed that the phone lines had been defective for years, with the same trouble code. To avoid paying fines to the State of California, the Telecom told the CPUC the trouble code "98" was not an indication of trouble on the phone lines. Trouble Code 98
(Note: an Email between a friend and an expert in Trouble Codes indicates the expert has the answer to the question, but is prohibited from responding because, "The LoopCare documentation is a licensed product and is only disclosed to customers who have purchased the LoopCare system or has an active maintenance agreement with Tollgrade. " Email with MLT Expert I forwarded the unredacted email to the FBI.
Defective phone lines, altered and missing records.
The Formal Complaint was done in writing. The Judge stated that I would not be allowed to cross-examine the utility. When I asked her why, she told me it was not her decision -- indicating that the Judge was being ordered to behave corruptly by high level CPUC officials.
Using information from the documents I obtained through photography, I was able to prove that the phone company was knowingly using defective phone lines and that records were altered and/or missing.
The Telecom did not dispute that defective phone lines were being used in my neighborhood.
The telecom acknowledged that records were altered and/or missing.
CPUC rules that Altered and missing records is acceptable
The telecom told the CPUC to ignore the altered and missing records.
The Commission (including CPUC President Michael Peevey) ruled that it was OK for the records to be missing and altered. Altered Repair Records
The Commission made no comment about the documents I photographed, or the fact that the phone company was knowingly using defective phone lines in my neighborhood.
Most of the Commissioners, including CPUC President, Michael Peevey, have the perfect alibi. The Corrupt Judge and the Denial for Rehearing
Commissioner Geoffrey Brown and the Sham Charity.
Commissioner Geoffrey Brown, who was assigned to my Formal Complaint, does not appear to have a good alibi. Commissioner Brown is a cousin to the current Govenor of California, Jerry Brown.
According to the "Leslie Brody Report," Geoffrey Brown is now being investigated for criminal acts linked to a sham charity organization which accepted money from the Utilities he had regulated, and this includes AT&T. CPUC Commissioner involved in sham charity
Besides being linked to the sham charity, CaliforniALL, Geoffrey Brown was involved in a Fundraising Dinner for the CPUC, which took most of its donations from the Utilities it regulates. This is a clear example of Conflict of Interest. cpuc-fundraiser
The Corrupt Judge and the Defective DAML
To avoid the issue of the use of defective phone lines, and the altered and missing repair records, the Judge created the defective DAML, blaming all service problems on a piece of telecom equipment that had been removed from my premises in November 1996.
The DAML was never found to be defective, and this shows evidence of exparte communication, and conspiracy to commit fraud.
The Corrupt Judge and the "admittedly defective DAML"
More threats of Bodily Harm. More evidence of corruption.
On October 22, 2010, after the PG&E explosion, I contacted CPUC Safety Director, Richard Clark, and Executive Director, Paul Clanon, requesting a meeting to discuss problems at the CPUC that they may not be aware of.
On November 2, 2010, the State Police showed up at my front door. The Officers told me that the Judge was worried I was going to harm her. I have had no contact with the Judge in over six years, except for two emails three years earlier (October 2007, letting her know that her refusal to follow the Rule of Law led to more phone problems.
The only contact I have had with the CPUC since the PG&E pipeline explosion was with Richard Clark's Office and Paul Clanon's office.
The officers told me they read the emails I sent to Clark and Clanon, and that there was nothing illegal or threatening. This provides evidence that Clark and Clanon are trying to intimidate people who have evidence of fraud committed by the CPUC. The California Highway Patrol, the Corrupt Judge, and the Police Report
I had a couple of meetings with Richard Clark back in March of 2001. Richard Clark is hostile towards consumers and very unprofessional. The letter from our meeting proves that Richard Clark decided to look the other way when answers to my questions proved the telecom was violating laws. April 27, 2001
A report by the State Senate Office Oversight Committee, Gaps Emerge in Telephone Consumer Protections, provides evidence that the CPUC's CAB Division, which is headed by Richard Clark, has a history of refusing to respond to thousands of informal complaints filed by consumers.
I spoke to the reporter, and she informed me that Richard Clark had a background in law enforcement, and he liked to act like a tough guy. Some of the words used in the police report, such as "threats of bodily harm," probably came from Richard Clark. This is evidence that Richard Clark had coached Judge Grau into filing a false police report.
More evidence of altered records.
On December 14, 2010, the NTSB reported that the pipeline was not seamless, as PG&E records claimed. This information is repeated, to show the timeline of events.
On December 18, 2010, I emailed the NTSB, alerting them that I had proof that a former PG&E executive had a history of altering records in the underground infrastructure when she worked at the telecom.
FBI calls me -- this time it's a pleasant conversation.
On December 21, 2010, the FBI called me, asking about corruption at the CPUC. The FBI agent was vague about who asked him to call me, but based on the words used by the FBI, I suspect it was the State Police.
I first contacted the FBI on July 5, 2007, after I learned the meaning of the Trouble Code "98." For years, I had been trying to get the FBI to open an investigation into the corruption at the CPUC. The FBI, which has limited resources, told me they would not open an investigation. Mike and the FBI
The letter below confirms that the Assistant Director to the FBI was aware of my complaints about corruption at the CPUC back in March of 2008.
My Fears of an incomplete investigation
There is overwhelming evidence the CPUC conspired with the utilities to conceal violations to laws, and problems in the underground infrastructure.
Based on my experiences, the telecoms cause more financial damage to our country by violating laws than the PG&E pipeline explosion. The reporter, who wrote Gaps Emerge in Telephone Consumer Protections, also believes that the phone problems are more costly to the State than the damage caused by PG&E's defective pipelines. Most of these Telecom losses could be prevented with a Telecommunications Consumer's Bill of Rights.
So far, nobody in Government has been willing to meet with me, in person, so that I can provide evidence of fraud and corruption that is not shown on my website. I fear that elected Officials don't want to risk losing large campaign donations from AT&T.
In a Public CPUC hearing on January 13, 2011, Assemblyman Jerry Hill told the CPUC that he doesn't trust the Commission due to its "Complacency."
CPUC President Michael Peevey, told Assemblyman Jerry Hill, that he was "contemptible" for his criticisms of the CPUC.
After the NTSB report came out, Commission President, Michail Peevey admitted the CPUC has been "Complacent."
San Mateo District Attorney
An article in the news spoke about the San Mateo District Attorney doing an investigation into the PG&E pipeline explosion.
I contacted the San Mateo District Attorney's Office regarding the corruption at the CPUC. I told an investigator about Linda Standen committing frauds to conceal problems in the underground infrastructure, and that she later went to work at PG&E.
The investigator asked if she altered records regarding the pipeline. I told the investigator that I don't know, but I do know there is a culture of altering records at the utilities, and that the CPUC allows it. I asked the investigator to investigate all aspects of record altering.
I mentioned evidence of corruption that is not on my website. This did not seem to surprise the investigator -- he appeared to have knowledge of the problems I spoke to him about. He told me a lot of people were coming out of the woodwork.
Webpage prior to the San Bruno PG&E fire.
Before the San Bruno fire, this webpage focused on the corruption at the CPUC that would allow an AT&T attorney to create a fictional phone number.
Dear Mr. President,
To avoid paying fines to the State of California, that could have exceeded $100 million, AT&T told the State of California that the above circled phone number has the last five digits of "85093." See: "85093" A fictional phone number and a blatent act of perjury.
The State of California, which has huge budget problems, has decided that it is better to lay off school teachers, police officers, firefighters and other other vital Government employees, instead of taking the necessary steps to send the AT&T Attorney to prison, and fining AT&T for violating Public Utility Laws and committing perjury to conceal the violations.
The Judge at the California Public Utilities Commission is absolutely corrupt. She refused to follow the Rule of Law, and she made up fraudulant statements of fact in her Decision to avoid the issue of the above circled phone number. There is even evidence that she intercepted my Application for Rehearing, and wrote the Denial for Rehearing. There are nine red flags that the Judge is corrupt, and 14 red flags that she hid evidence from the Commissioners: The Corrupt Judge and the Denial for Rehearing . (Please note, a police report dated 11/02/2010 provides four additional red flags the Judge is corrupt. The Corrupt Judge, and the Police Report)
From what I have been told by the FBI, an FBI agent tried to open an investigation into corruption, but somebody shut it down. (FBI calls back on 12/21/2010, see update on the bottom of The San Bruno PG&E fire)
If you were to declare the phone number has the last five digits of "25093," you could save consumers and corporations billions of dollars each year caused by lost productivity, while creating thousands of jobs in the private sector, by establishing a Telecommunications Consumer's Bill of Rights
So far, nobody in Government is willing to do anything about AT&T committing perjury, and that includes your administration, the FBI, the California Public Utilities Commission, Congressman McNerney, Senator Boxer, and the Governor of California (at the time this was written, Schwarzennegger was Governor)
An FBI agent actually told me that Attorneys commit perjury, and I should just, "let it go." Every AT&T Attorney knows they can get away with criminal acts of fraud, and the message from the FBI is that they will do nothing about it.
On June 9, 2009, I wrote to the White House, regarding issues linked to the above phone number that is costing our country to lose billions of dollars a year in lost productivity caused by unfair laws, corporate fraud, and corruption.
I received a form letter from the White House, dated July 15, 2009, indicating you would like to help, but that you were focused on Health Care Reform. White House letters
An AT&T document I photographed, dated March 16, 2009, provides the evidence necessary for law enforcement to prove, beyond a doubt, that AT&T created a fictional phone number. Unfortuneatly, the FBI refuses to do anything about it, and has repeatedly told me to, "Let it go." Mike and the FBI
a defective phone line and a fictional phone number
The phone number noted above, received service through a phone line that was known to be defective. Nobody has disputed that fact. See:Log of Defective Cable Pairs.
The dispute about the above phone number, is about whether or not it is my phone number (925-462-5093). In a court of law, a phone company attorney stated it is not my phone number, and that it has the last five digits of "85093." See: "85093" A fictional phone number and a blatent act of perjury.
By looking at the photograph, and comparing a "2" which is flat on the bottom, to an "8", which is round at the bottom, a ten-year-old child can determine that AT&T committed perjury, but not our government -- not even the FBI, which had been asked by Congresswomen Ellen Tauscher, to make that determination.
If the Federal Government were to determine that the phone number in the above photograph is "25093," and not "85093," as AT&T told the State of California, it could:
Saving the jobs of 2000 California State employees could be done by fining AT&T over $200 million for repeatedly violating public utilities laws that are linked to the above phone number.
"And End Users" --three words that can save $billions
Saving this country billions of dollars in lost productivity, creating jobs, and making work easier and less stressful can be accomplished by adding the words "and end users" after the word "carriers" to the following Federal Law:
This would give consumers (end users) the rights to test their phone lines, and see the test results, without interference from the phone companies. A website, created by a reseller, explains the process:mlt test
The FCC letter to Congresswoman Tauscher (shown below) confirms that law 47 C.F.R. Section 51.319(a)(1)(iv) provides pro-competitive protections to resellers of phone service, but does not apply to consumers. In other words, the law that was written to prevent unfair treatment to resellers of phone service, is not intended to protect consumers from unfair treatment:
(The above letter references a letter from the FCC in 2001, which the FCC cannot confirm having, because, according to the above letter, it only keeps records for one year. This is the letter: July 27, 2001 )
I suggest going even further to protect consumers, phone company employees, and the Government. Here is what I propose: Telecommunications Consumer's Bill of Rights
The company that will benefit the most, if you determine the number has the last five digits of "25093" is AT&T, as it will expose frauds designed to conceal problems in AT&T's infrastructure. Furthermore, it will explain why AT&T has lost more than half of its landline marketshare where I live, and why the AT&T sales people cannot get customers back.
Sadly, no one in Government is willing to say anything about the above phone number, and AT&T may be the next House of Cards that fails, not unlike Enron, WorldCom, and most recently, Bernie Madoff. AT&T World Com fraud?
