(orig. pub. 2/20/2011)
[This is a continuation of my posts “John Gleason: Lawyer Impersonator?” of Sept. 4, 2010, and “John Gleason and Me” of Feb. 8, 2010.]
A propos of articles on the web about the Masonic control of Denver–and the world (e.g., google “DIA conspiracy”)–it turns out that John Gleason, the head of the Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel, probably is a Mason.
Last year, I contacted the only employer Gleason ever had as a lawyer prior to OARC, Robert Bartholic, who said that a man named John V. Egan, III, worked for him at the same time as Gleason did, and that Egan and Gleason are good friends. Bartholic indicated both had been deputy sheriffs together at the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office, and then became attorneys who went to work for him, a very strange coincidence.
Egan is now the Grand Poobah of all Masonic lodges in Colorado.
***Update 1/19/13: Egan is now a “Past Poobah.” See this list, the 2011 entry.
***Update 12/11/20: I had formerly linked to full-page photos of Egan and Bartholic in their regalia, but the Freemasons changed the URLs and removed the photos from their site. I was at least able to find this 2011 photo showing Egan (and this list):
Bartholic is a prominent Freemason and Big Kahuna himself, as was his father Clarence, and Stephen Munsinger, a judge in Jefferson County (who was bad news in a case I had against Beneficial Finance Co.). See the list for confirmation (all three were Grand Masters in 1996, 1963, and 1998, respectively). The Denver Public Library has membership lists for the Masonic lodges in the Denver area from the 1950’s and 60’s, and the two Bartholics held several high positions throughout this period. There is a plaque honoring Clarence at the D.U. Law School.
Although I haven’t seen John Gleason’s name on these lists, these close associations with the two most powerful Freemasons in the State (including loans to Gleason from Bartholic detailed below) indicate that he is a Mason, too, so it appears more and more certain that he was planted at OARC to protect the criminal banking cabal in its subversion of our judicial system. I’ve pointed out that Gleason did not possess the minimum requirements for the OARC job, and does not have an undergraduate degree. See my post of 9/4/10. [Especially see my latest, “John Gleason, Mob Plant,” of June 2015.] As for Egan, he was listed in the Colorado Legal Directory in 2008, but is apparently running a sprinkler company now. No telling when he went to law school. Did he go to Pettit, too, after leaving the Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office?
Freemasonry and the big banking interests have been closely intertwined for several hundred years; and they are working together to achieve the New World Order. See En Route to Global Occupation by Gary Kah and The Crimes of a President by Joel Bainerman, both written in 1992. The banking interests I’m talking about include the Rothschild family and the Rockefellers, Goldman Sachs, other banks in Europe. Although, at the lower levels, Masons believe they are doing community service, as Kah points out they are also taking oaths to keep the operations of the organization secret. The lower ones do not know what the higher ones are up to. The highest-degree Masons choose who is permitted to progress to their inner circle. There are examples in Kah’s book of persons who have been high-level Masons and defected, then turned up dead. Masons worship Satan, as well (which is Kah’s problem with Freemasonry, as a devout Christian); but Christians are often allied with Freemasonry, he says because the Freemasons deceive them and say they are working to unify the world for Jesus Christ. The way they control government is by surrounding leaders with a network of co-opted advisers. Masons never do anything under the name of Freemasonry. There are thousands of Masons in governments all over the world.
When I was quizzing Bartholic on the phone last year about why Gleason left his employ to go to work at OARC, he piped up, “I thought he just applied for the job and got it!” That hadn’t been exactly responsive to the question I asked and seemed to indicate…that he had different knowledge.
Bartholic’s relationship with Gleason goes way beyond simply being his employer, because five and seven years after Gleason left his employ, Bartholic and his wife Esther gave him two mortgages on his home at 700 E. Northridge Rd., of $12,000 and $10,000 , which were paid off not that long after they were recorded (Exhibits 10-12A). Gleason worked for Bartholic in 1986-87. The fact he got these mortgages years later indicates a personal relationship, making even weaker Gleason’s statement that he had “several years’ experience in private practice with a law firm in Denver” before being taken on at OARC sometime after September 1987. There was only his association with Bartholic, who told me he “didn’t have that much” for Gleason to do and did no litigation.
The property records in Douglas County reveal other interesting mortgages Gleason has taken, as well, which I detail below. What they show, in a nutshell, is that several big loans have been taken out against Gleason’s home which are then paid off in full a few months later. If someone else besides Gleason paid off these loans, only the bank (and the parties themselves) would know, because that information does not appear of record. Payoff of a borrower’s loans by a third party would mean the borrower pocketed the cash; and the question we must ask is, what did he do to deserve it?
The company making several hundred thousand dollars’ worth of loans I regard as most questionable, Englewood Mortgage Company, is discussed at the end.
Update 11/20/11: I have discovered a 2010 article flagging the exact same type of activity–multiple conveyances, by a judge and deputy district attorney–in San Bernardino County, CA, as suspicious. That reporter, Janet Phelan, clearly regards such a pattern as evidence of payoffs, just as I do. My guess is it is widespread. Go here.
Here’s the skinny on Gleason:
John S. and Karrie M. Gleason closed on their first home at 700 E. Northridge Rd. in Highlands Ranch on Oct. 28, 1987. [Reception #8734702; (Doc. 8)]. My first question is: the ad for the position he got at OARC appeared in the Sept. 1987 issue of The Colorado Lawyer. (And, in fact, the deadline for applications, Aug. 25th, had already passed by the time the ad was published.) So did he qualify for this loan based on someone’s private assurance he was going to get that job? The Gleasons paid $124,000 for the home, and had a deed of trust (from MVC Financial Corporation, apparently an arm of Mission Viejo) of $118,600 against it. (Doc. 9) [I have usually copied only the first couple pages of deeds of trust, since they are long and mostly boilerplate.]
While they owned that home, as mentioned the Gleasons recorded two second mortgages for the benefit of Gleason’s former employer Robert Bartholic and his wife Esther Bartholic. These were for $12,000, recorded 7/17/92 and released 12/8/92–five months later (so somehow Gleason came up with $12,000 to pay him back) (Docs. 10 and 11)–and $10,000, recorded 4/6/94, and released 6/7/96. (Docs. 12 and 13). They sold that house on June 25, 1996. Thus, Bartholic was paid back in full for the second loan before the Gleasons had the proceeds from the sale–which means he was paid off by someone else.
On Feb. 3, 1994, over six years after they bought the house, the Gleasons then took out a deed of trust (DOT) from North American Mortgage Co. of $114,000 (Doc. 14), which paid off the original mortgage with MVC Financial Corp (Doc. 14-A). That was at some point transferred to GE Capital Mortgage Services, Inc., but when it was released on 9/25/96, the release recites that the evidence of debt had been misplaced (Doc. 15). So, no telling what was actually paid to release the lien. If nothing was paid–and I am speculating here–that would mean the Gleasons pocketed the cash. Still respecting the Northridge Rd. home, on May 11, 1995, the Gleasons took out a deed of trust (recorded 5/23/95) for $10,000 from Norwest (Doc. 16). The Bartholic loan (Doc. 12) was subordinated to the Norwest DOT via an agreement which does not appear in the index, but I came across in the records by accident (Doc. 12-A). The Norwest DOT was released Sept. 4, 1996, about three months after they sold the home (Doc. 17).
On Sept. 25, 1996, the Gleasons closed on their second house in Highlands Ranch, at 2235 E. Thistle Ridge Cir., paying $220,000 (Doc. 18). The same date, they recorded a $176,000 mortgage from Norwest (Doc. 19). This DOT was released Jan. 18, 1997, less than four months later (Doc. 20).
On Dec. 16, 1996, they had obtained another mortgage, from Englewood Mortgage Company, for $181,500 (reception #9672609) (Doc. 21). While this could have paid off the $176,000 Norwest mortgage (Doc. 19), it’s a big red flag. People don’t usually go through all the hassle and expense of a closing only to turn around and refinance three months later (and banks don’t usually let them, in my experience).
This $181,500 deed of trust was assigned to the Bank of Oklahoma. It was released on June 12, 2001–but the release was notarized and recorded over two years later, on August 8, 2003 (#2003119465) (Doc. 22). Why the delay, I wonder?
On June 13, 2001, another deed of trust for the benefit of Englewood Mortgage Company was recorded against the Thistle Ridge Circle home, for $195,000 (Reception #2001053294) (Doc. 23). This was assigned to Washington Mutual, and released Feb. 12, 2003, recorded April 9, 2003, so paid off in 16 months (Doc. 24).
On January 27, 2003, another DOT, a 30-year mortgage for $200,000, was recorded for the benefit of Englewood Mortgage Company, referring to a promissory note signed Dec. 31, 2002. (Reception #2003010743) (Doc. 25). This was assigned to Provident Funding Assoc. LP on Dec. 31, 2002 (Doc. 26), and released Jan. 10, 2005 (Reception #2005002832) (Doc. 27).
A 30-year deed of trust from National City Mortgage for $203,000 dated Dec. 21, 2004, was recorded on Jan. 11, 2005 (Reception #2005003853) (Doc. 28). This was released August 19, 2005, seven months later (reception #2005078080) (Doc. 29).
A 30-year deed of trust from J.P. Morgan Chase was recorded August 11, 2005, in the amount of $211,000 (reception #2005075620) (Doc. 30). So between Jan. 11 and August 11, 2005, the Gleasons refinanced twice (if these were refinancings–again, improbable); and between June 13, 2001, and August 11, 2005, four times.
In fact, as of April 8, 2003, there were $576,500 in loans recorded against this house, bought for $220,000 in 1996. As of Jan. 12, 2005, there were only $203,000 in loans recorded against it, meaning $373,500 had been paid off. The delays in recording are more evidence that later loans did not pay off earlier loans.
On Oct. 25, 2010, recorded 11/3/10, the Gleasons then received a 15-year deed of trust from “Quicken Loans” in Michigan, in the amount of $207,000 (Doc. 31). The J.P. Morgan Chase deed of trust (Doc. 30) was released Nov. 8, 2010 (Doc. 32). This particular “refinancing” is a few months after the last harassing, groundless disciplinary hearing against me, on the complaint brought by the attorney for billionaire Gary Magness to punish me for kicking her butt in litigation–in four appeals, no less. I have made the case elsewhere in this blog that bribery of public officials is a way of life for Mr. Magness.
Mission Viejo–the developer of Highlands Ranch (where both of the Gleasons’ homes have been)–is or was the client of the Brownstein, Hyatt, Farber, Schreck law firm, which I have referred to for years as a “mobbed-up law firm,” backed up by Pete Brewton’s expose of the S&L crooks, including Norm Brownstein and his clients Larry Mizel/MDC Holdings, Ken Good, Bill Walters, John Dick, that lot. (See Brewton’s 1992 book, The Mafia, CIA, and George Bush. Ken Good–for whom Brownstein set up more than 100 trusts–has, by the way, been linked to Mohamed Atta; see Welcome to Terrorland by Daniel Hopsicker.) [And not long after I published that last gold nugget, Ken Good suddenly died.]
Englewood Mortgage Company is a trade name for EMC Holdings, the registered agent for which is an entity called Marsico Enterprises. These entities involve an investment banker named Tom Marsico.
The “organizer” for EMC Holdings as of filings made in 7/16/01–the relevant time for the mortgages to Gleason–was an attorney at Brownstein Hyatt named M. Jeanne Nelson. Also, the organizer for Marsico Enterprises was Edward N. Barad, another Brownstein attorney. Thus, Gleason is connected with Brownstein through Englewood Mortgage Company, as well as through Mission Viejo. Englewood Mortgage Company’s loans to Gleason represent nonstandard business practice (although I don’t mean to imply the other mortgage companies’ practices are blameless!)
Did the Brownstein lawyers or Marsico play a role in getting Gleason his job at OARC–and set him up in his Highlands Ranch homes? Definitely at least Most Worshipful Grandmaster Robert Bartholic did.
