And Rends does it again, making claims with a link to a document that does not show what he claims. This one was a familiar point to it, and I thought for a few minutes that I’d made some big mistake with what I’d written before. Instead, there is another explanation.
On LENR Forum, Rends wrote: (Abd emphasis)
The heat exchanger story is a good example, as the IH expert Rick A. Smith has shown in his report by means of photographs, there was this serpentine heat exchanger, just as Rossi has described it to Wong. What sense should the installation of this heat exchanger make, if the Ecat plant does not work? Because according to the agreements between IH and JM Products, no IH personal would have been allowed to take a look into the black box. This heat exchanger makes sense only if heat is actually produced, if this was all a fake, this installation would have been completely unnecessary.
Problem: first, the “serpentine” is described as a “heat exchanger,” but is not the heat exchanger claimed by Rossi to be in the upstairs room, venting heat out the window there. It is, rather, the box in the downstairs “customer area,” seemingly used for heating products. Rends is searching for possibilities to make the heat real. There was, of course, real heat, about 20 kW worth, so the Rends argument is completely bogus.
However, Rends also mentions something else that Rossi Said, the alleged prohibition of access by IH personnel to the JMP customer area, according to the “agreements.” The Agreement between JMP, Rossi, and IH, I have pointed out many times, does not contain such a clause. However,

Clause 9 ot the term sheet (245-3):
9. The personnel of IH and Leonardo will not have access to the plant of JM, and the personnel of JM will not have access to the inside of the 1MW plant, or to the information about how the 1mw (sic) plant operates, which are trade secrets of Leonardo and IH.
Damn, because Rossi represented both (director of Leonardo as well as of JM), he wouldn’t have been allowed neither inside the 1MW plant, nor at the JM side!:/
Seeing that, WTF? I looked at the Term sheet so many times it is coming out of my ears, and I didn’t see that. Then I see the “1 mw.” This was a draft, not the final, signed document. This is what we have:
(restricts JMC personnel access to Plant, but not IH personnel access to “the plant of JM.” So where did this come from?
245-3 is a set of emails with drafts of the term sheet. The draft quoted is PDF page 4 of that document. This draft is explicit that the customer is Johnson-Matthey, and it is called JM throughout.
Page 6 is Darden replying to Rossi, July 10, 2014 who commented, the same day, on the draft. The Johnson-Matthey issue is not mentioned by Rossi, only the typo “1 mw” for “1 MW.” Otherwise it was “perfect.”
Page 9 is the next draft. It still reads Johnson Matthey but the 1 mw blooper is fixed and … the restriction on access by IH to the customer plant is removed.
Page 13 is Rossi explaining that it would be a bad idea for Darden to visit Johnson Matthey in London because they wanted this to be secret. Rossi is confirming the idea that Johnson Matthey was the customer, but merely preferring to act through the U.S. company. He pretends to be in communication with the UK company about the proposed agreement.
This goes on. “Johnson Matthey” is replaced with “JM CORPORATION (‘JM’), the operator of a Miami production facility.
Which, of course, did not exist when this was represented, period.
Darden wanted to meet with them before finalizing the agreement. Hence the meeting set up with Johnson, ostensibly representing JM.
Through all this, Rossi is lying. Johnson then backs him up, signing the OFAC declaration as representing a “U.K. entity.” Which was, again, a lie. Johnson is claiming that creating a U.K. entity was intended, but not done because it was too expensive. Regardless, he signed a declaration as fact that was not fact, only at best an intention, and specifically an intention to create some dummy U.K. corporation so that it could be pretended that this was actually Johnson Matthey.
Is it possible that Rossi misled Johnson as well? It is not impossible, just as it is not impossible that Bass was misled. However, if one is misled into playing a role in fraudulent representation, that would be a protection against criminal prosecution, generally, but not against civil damages.
The copy shown that supports Rends’ narrative was an early draft, not the document as signed, and when Rossi claimed that the Agreement prohibited IH access to the customer plant, this was either a lie or a very defective and highly selective memory: Rossi remembers what he wants to be true. In this case, that he had the contractual right to put on his JMP hat and prohibit access.
There is no hope for Rossi under these conditions. He failed to pull out a Wabbit, though he is still pretending mightily, posturing before his JONP audience. But maybe the Zalli letter will prove that IH was just pretending to be interested in Rossi technology, actually they were planning on dissolving the reactors in fuming nitric acid to hide the disruptive technology, but the intrepid Dr. Rossi foiled that nefarious plan.
Stay tuned for the next exciting episode of As the Planet Turns, where a bevy of Quark-X reactors, launched into orbit by the North Koreans, turns night into day, ruining the nightclub vampire business that Cherokee depends on.
