Why I Was Targeted (Revamped Nov. 29, 2015!)

 
Because this blog so far offers little insight into why I contend the numerous disciplinary proceedings, and huge monetary sanctions, pursued against me by the Colorado Supreme Court for over four years was retaliatory--rather than prompted by any ethical misconduct on my part--here is a rundown of some of the litigation I handled over 23 years as a lawyer in Colorado.

It was almost all politically charged.  I often took cases pro bono when there was a strong public interest at stake, so gave people access to the courts who otherwise would not have had it; and I did not shy from taking on powerful and well-funded developers and governments.  I was agog much of the time--feeling even privileged in a horrified kind of way--at the discrete windows which kept opening up to reveal different views of the corruption in Colorado:  alteration and disappearance of public records, including court records; ballot box stuffing; secret giveaways of state lands and water rights; takeovers of nonprofit boards, in order to steal the nonprofit's property and convey it to cronies; lies to Congress; lies by attorneys to judges while the inaptly (and ungrammatically) named "Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel" looked the other way; lies by judges; judge-switching, for no reason; judges communicating with my opponents ex parte; judges taking direction in their rulings from the outside; judges taking bribes; one good judge maybe even being murdered.

In other words, I knew too much.  In many of my cases, particularly having to do with water rights and other real property, I uncovered crimes committed by powerful people.  Because they knew I had evidence which could send them to prison, they got together to destroy me first.  Since I worked for myself, they had to go after my law license, and create a huge stinking mound of crap to pile on.  But I still have my legal files, which I am scanning.  My documents absolutely prove what I contend.  The following is only a preview of what is to come in future blog posts--a Taste of Colorado, if you will, with the dishes in no particular order. 

1.  Animas-La Plata:  I have one post about the A-LP travesty, where Colorado's share of water allocated to it under the Colorado River Compact was secretly given away to two Indian tribes, under the pretext of a "settlement" of claims which were, as I showed, invalid and nonexistent, as a matter of law.  Clearly, I was hauled through disciplinary proceedings so the Colorado Supreme Court could bury findings I made in the course of this case, before it in appellate briefs, such as that an attorney named William Eakes--who had filed the original application for the Animas-La Plata water rights in 1963--became the judge in 1966 and granted his own application.  Eakes also disposed of evidence in the court file which established priorities in a statutory adjudication held in the 1950's, which were senior to A-LP.  Zip!  All those senior priorities suddenly did not exist.  I proved this, as well as that he had forged a string of diligence decrees.

I further showed, in my appellate brief, that another former water judge, Al Haas, ceded all case management in the water case--revived after it was repurposed to satisfy "Indian Reserved Rights," so American taxpayers could be guilted into paying for it--to Durango water lawyer Sam Maynes, one of the most vicious criminals in the state.  Maynes is the reason no notice was ever given of any of the proceedings to any of the 100 objectors in the case.  The judge put Maynes in charge of mailing the signed decree to objectors, as if he was the court, so not only was the decree drafted secretly and entered ex parte, it was never even provided to the other parties in the case.  By the time objectors such as my client Jack Scott started making inquiries the time to appeal had long run!

I further made a case at the sham "trial" we had in the Division 7 water court about the criminal racket known as the Southwestern Water Conservation District, which brings in a million dollars a year in tax moneys and has one part-time employee, no water rights, no distribution system.  It provides no service to anyone.  It has no pipes.  It exists simply to tax, and uses this money not only to pay two law firms to push through this boondoggle water project no taxpayer wanted, but to bribe legislators.  We showed hundreds of thousands of dollars funneled through "lobbyist" Ray Kogovsek, and I found the Rose Law Firm (Hillary Clinton's firm) on the payroll.  Of course, those facts had to be deep-sixed, too, since the sociopath David Robbins represents the SWCD, having taken over from Maynes, and the narcissist Greg Hobbs, of the Colorado Supreme Court, has lionized Maynes, with tears in his eyes, as his mentor.  Robbins and his cohorts also worried the other members of the Court will find out about the frauds they perpetrated themselves, such as their creation of a storage right in Ridges Basin Reservoir out of thin air, years after it had been abandoned (as I uncovered) for failure to file for diligence.  They did this by just slipping a revived water right into the decree they drafted, which was rubberstamped by the current water judge, Greg Lyman.  There was an endless string of violations of other laws.  Never let it be said that Lyin' Lyman is there to ensure the Water Rights Determination and Administration Act is followed in his court, however!  He don't have to follow no stinkin' laws.

Thus, the A-LP proponents, through their agents on the Catholic--er, Colorado--Supreme Court, Greg Hobbs and Mary Mullarkey, directed the disciplinary proceedings against me not only to bury these embarrassing allegations which were before them in my APPELLATE BRIEFS, but so I could not take this matter to the U.S. Supreme Court, where it should have gone, nor run for Colorado Attorney General again.  I had, in fact, beaten Ken Salazar in Durango in 2002, because the residents there knew he was an A-LP toady, and that I was their advocate.  Attorneys not in good standing cannot hold the office of Attorney General, so the Colorado Supreme Court has ultimate power over the AG.  So, as I experienced firsthand, they will just cook up any old allegation to make you not in good standing, if you make things too hot.

One of the bad guys scared that he would go to prison because of his role in A-LP--as he should have done--is a Notre Dame grad named David J. Hayes, Jr., "water czar" under both Clinton and Obama, now a professor at Stanford, who I have evidence is responsible for the "AbovetheLaw.com" screeds ridiculing me that have been on the web now for nearly NINE YEARS*.  I emailed him about six months ago to ask if he was proud of his "Animas-La Plata legacy"--meaning the ruination of my career and reputation and life, which he engineered to divert attention from the fact that HE WAS THE PRINCIPAL ENABLER OF THE CRIMINAL ENTERPRISE.  The fucker did not respond.

I have several installments about Greg Lyman in the works, to show the creative ways he kept stretching the rules to favor my opponents, in order that they could get their hole dug before any of our objections were addressed, while interpreting the rules routinely against us, in order to run my clients--and me--out of money.  I have been remembering one outrageous contact recently.  We had gotten no disclosures from the United States Department of Justice (let alone any other party) after waiting around for five years--and I do mean NO DISCLOSURES for a billion-dollar water project--so I moved for sanctions.  I was warned by Lyman that I would be sanctioned if I ever asked for sanctions again.  And when I referred to the DOJ's position as "Orwellian," he told me I would be sanctioned if I ever used the term "Orwellian" again.  There were several other cases I had in Water Division 7 in front of Greg Lyman, as well--as well as one before the other district court judge, one Dickinson.  They all went like this:  opinions based on red herrings, and threats of sanctions when I asked for normal, established rights under the rules.

Don't anyone ever say there is not Catholic influence in these water thefts, or in the persecution of me personally.  One need only look at the list of the names involved.  The most powerful players are Irish.  With a few Spanish, Italian, German or French names sprinkled around.

2.  Election fraud:  ballot-box stuffing via absentee ballots, as well as in the polling place, by development interests (who were Democrats) in collusion with the town clerk and county clerk in two Town of Castle Rock elections in 1998 and 1999.  A video of me talking about the absentee ballot frauds is here.  Embedded (at 9:41) is a video taken by my client on election day, in which Scott Lamm appears.  He was one of the developers' operatives working the election.  Scott's father, former Colorado governor Dick Lamm, was incensed at my mentioning his son's name on the radio, as I saw when I encountered Dick while campaigning for Attorney General in 2002.  I thus believe Lamm was one of the engineers of the retaliation against me.

I litigated other election contests besides Castle Rock, too--for instance, this one in Denver.  In almost every one, we started out with a judge who was ruling in our favor, and suddenly he or she was replaced, with no reason shown of record, by a judge who then dismissed our case. 

3.  Takeover of a homeowners' association board, to steal the water rights and other real property:  This is the Spring Creek Ranch matter in Summit County, involving the takeover of my clients' homeowners' association (SCRA) by persons who transferred the SCRA's water rights and other real property to the adjacent developer and themselves, as soon as they were installed on the board by the  judge.  This case involved a veritable army of crooked public officials, including bribe-taking judges, water officials, deputy sheriffs, county officials, and DA's; multimillionaires directly tied to organized crime (one of whom tried to run my client and me off a mountain road); venal attorneys; and football thugs threatening financial ruin and even murder to people (mostly my clients) who would not go along with their schemes--and carrying out their threats.

One of my disciplinary cases (actually several complaints which were consolidated, almost all of which were filed by the unethical Victor Boog) stemmed from this matter.  The OARC and Colorado Supreme Court directly assisted Boog and his clients--who are readily linked to organized crime--in the litigation, by conducting this siege against my license, to get me off the case. (I have already shown that OARC head John Gleason was a mob plant).  For example, when I was poised to file an opening brief on behalf of Gerald Lewis in his appeal, both James Coyle and April McMurrey told the presiding disciplinary judge that I was not in good standing, so could not file the brief.  I went directly downstairs to the Attorney Registration Office and came back with a certificate of good standing.  That Coyle and McMurrey told this lie shows they were colluding with the defendants in our case.

(In fact, I have recently realized that, because they were unsuccessful at keeping me from filing the brief, they had to get to the panel that decided our case--because the result that came out of the Court of Appeals was diametrically opposed to every case ever dealing with the same subject in all 50 states.  It was an open-and-shut issue of law, in our favor, and the panel ruled the opposite way.  On our panel was Jerry Jones, a law school classmate of mine who has been assisted in his career by The Fixer Jesuit John Moye--more reasons for believing that Moye pulls the strings on the judges in Colorado.  Another blog post yet to come.)

4.  Secret deals with developers, to privately convey state trust lands:  First comes Harper vs. State Land Board.   My clients Bill and Lavonna Harper had a lease for 20 years with the Colorado State Land Board of Commissioners for a piece of state trust land, and were authorized to construct extensive improvements on it.  They had the right to be compensated for their improvements if they ever lost the lease.  Instead, the SLB tried to run them out because its employees had made a secret deal with developers to convey the land privately, to avoid public bidding requirements.  In the process I discovered the involvement of Gov. Roy Romer in giveaways of trust lands, including one from which he personally profited (History of the Romer Ranch). 

Judge Matsch on the federal bench engaged in politically motivated footdragging, keeping us in litigation for nine years.  Shortly before trial he sliced off five-sixths of my case for no reason, and then, at trial, prohibited me from putting evidence before the jury about the SLB's numerous violations of law, in order to limit our recovery and again protect the state wrongdoers.  This was a hugely important case which not only should have made headlines but should also have made me and my clients rich.  For political reasons Matsch would not let that happen.  I should have taken this case to the U.S. Supreme Court, but I was then defending against the slew of bogus disciplinary proceedings--and then Bill Harper died, which is what his opponents--and the judge--were all biding their time for, anyway.

A second case against the Land Board involved the Cochetopa school section, where the SLB gave a developer a valuable piece of trust land in return for a piece of junk land, because its deputy director, John Brejcha, lied about the value of both parcels to his own board (as he did in Harper, as well).  In both Harper and Cochetopa I uncovered a twisting vipers' pit of SLB employees and assistant attorneys general engaged in self-dealing, people either woefully unqualified even to hold the positions they did in state government, or burdened with conflicts, or both.  Exhibit 1 is Brejcha himself. 

5.  Wellington Webb and the theft of the El Jebel Temple:  I represented Eulipions, an African-American theater arts group, which owned the historic El Jebel Temple in downtown Denver.  The black mayor of Denver, Wellington Webb, and his hatchet man, City Attorney Dan Muse, threatened Eulipions with unjustified foreclosure unless their board members stepped down, to be replaced by Webb's handpicked cronies.  Once on the board, the cronies changed the locks on the building, sold it, and pocketed the proceeds.  This was the same scenario outlined in the Spring Creek Ranch matter above, therefore.

The Denver judge was switched five times until the defendants got one they liked, John McMullen.  I got the first dismissal reversed on appeal, but we were remanded back to McMullen, who dismissed the case a second time on the very same grounds.  We were in litigation for five years and never got a single one of our issues determined.  Incredibly, we did not prevail in the second appeal:  the Court of Appeals took the  opposite stance on the same issue! The Webb cronies not only got to keep the proceeds from the sale of a building they stole outright, with the blessing of the courts, but appropriated the name "Eulipions."  These impostors have--outrageously--continued to use the name, giving "grants" to other arts groups, but never staging any plays, while the real Eulipions, which was a unique community resource, has languished and effectively dissolved.

6. Chatfield Arboretum:  Denver mayor Wellington Webb quietly installed a banker named Bruce Alexander as head of Denver Parks and Recreation.  Alexander, who had zero background in parks or recreation, signed his name to conveyances of interests in Denver parks to his developer cronies, then "retired."  I challenged his illegal conveyance of easements across the Chatfield Arboretum. The case--like my own case in federal court--went through unexplained judge switching until we landed with the hack John Kane, who denied us a TRO and dismissed our case, at the same time he was socializing with our litigation opponents (see pp. 4-6).

6.  Daniels Park:  This is another park Webb secretly carved up for his developer buddies.  They even moved the Kit Carson historical monument in order to give the property it sat on to the founder of Re/Max, Dave Liniger, so Liniger could build a castle on this piece of the park.  Daniels Park, which used to be one of the most breathtakingly lovely parks, where my family went for picnics when I was a child, is now unrecognizable--assuming you can even find your way to it, because all the maps are changed, fences were moved, and McMansions crowd the park on every side.  The park was torn up so 10-foot-diameter pipes could be installed through it to carry rich people's feces away.  Goodbye, chipmunks!  Goodbye, beautiful views and pines!  And fuck you, Wellington Webb.

7 Barilla v. Magness:  I beat Gary Magness, who bulldozed my clients' property in 1997, after 11 years of litigation--a sole practitioner working on contingency against a billionaire--and prevailed in four appeals.  I put $300,000 into my clients' bank account (which would have been $400,000 if they had taken a settlement offer made Jan. 2, 2008).  Instead of being rewarded for my dedication to my clients, I was hauled through bogus disciplinary proceedings initiated by Magness's attorney (who billed Magness for her time, showing that forcing my withdrawal from the case was a litigation strategy), and suspended for a year and a day on utterly trumped-up grounds.  The opinion in the disciplinary case mentions not one of the pieces of evidence I put into the record, such as my working for eleven years for my clients without compensation, against a billionaire and insurance defense counsel for a public entity; my stunning victory against the billionaire; or that the grievance was not filed by my clients, but, instead, by the Baker & Hostetler lawyer, Rebecca Alexander, who was mad she lost.  It does not even mention these facts as factors in mitigation.  The opinion is just a hatchet job.  Importantly, it requires me to submit to a mental evaluation before I may be readmitted to practice, a condition put in without notice or hearing, in blatant violation of the Supreme Court's own rules once again.  I will never submit to it.  I have chosen instead to investigate and write about the corruption in the Colorado courts--and thus to die in poverty, probably soon.  I am unemployed and unemployable and have no health insurance, and recently have developed a medical condition that I believe is life-threatening--hard to know for sure, since I do not have a doctor, but am relying on charity for such care as I have had.

8.  Park County Sportsmen's Ranch and Aurora in South Park:  I was the lawyer who created the Center of Colorado Water Conservancy District, which brings in about $300,000 a year, so was able to fight the City of Aurora's attempts to steal the groundwater in South Park.  I was repeatedly undermined and attacked by Jeff Kahn, the lawyer for the competing water conservancy district in South Park, and then stiffed by my own client, so I withdrew from the representation.  However, I got in place a strong Supreme Court opinion that gave the 4,000 well owners in South Park standing to assert injury to their exempt wells, and I am going to give myself credit for that, since I don't see anyone one else doing so!  Of course, the man who knew the most about my contribution--my client James Gardner--is dead (likely murdered by the water development interests who fought us).

9.  Snowmass Creek instream flow:  I filed the historic suit against the Colorado Water Conservation Board when it reduced the decreed instream flow (ISF) in Snowmass Creek from 12 cfs to 7 cfs in 1992, giving the Aspen Skiing Company 5 cfs of the state water right to make snow with.  Ultimately, this case played a big role in my losing the job I found after leaving the AG's office, as the City Attorney for Craig, Colorado, because of Jim Lochhead and Roy Romer.  (See my comment to this post.)  Because I had been so publicly humiliated, first by Robbins's campaign to get me off AWDI and sacked from the AG's office, and then by the fiasco in Craig, where I had finally found a job, I gave the ISF case up after I filed an appeal, which I had to do when Denver District Court Judge Nancy Rice dismissed all seven of our claims.  The case was won at the Supreme Court on two of my theories, however (although the lawyer who took it over from me gave valuable rights away, too).

Nancy Rice, ISF opponent Greg Hobbs, and Moffat County District Court Judge Rebecca Love Kourlis (see the Craig link above)--all of whom had been involved with me in the ISF case or in Craig--were placed on the Colorado Supreme Court by Governor Roy Romer after the Snowmass Creek case was decided, to ensure future cases brought to protect instream flows--particularly those brought by me!--would never again be successful.  (And indeed, they weren't.)  Rice is now Chief Justice of the Colorado Supreme Court.  There is substantial evidence of a quid pro quo, such that Rice knew that if she dismissed the ISF case she would be appointed to the Colorado Supreme Court, which I will detail when I finish the Snowmass Creek blog post. 

10.  Open Records and Open Meetings Law cases:   I filed several of these in my career, and even had success in a handful.  The most shocking offender is the Colorado Supreme Court itself (including OARC), since it refuses to provide me writings in its possession which deal with me personally, when they are unequivocally required to be disclosed.  This is evidence that I was, indeed, the target of a concerted attack directed from above.  OARC also has refused to provide me the personnel file of John Gleason, also unequivocally a public record, although a "collusive case" was filed (after I made my request for the file in 2010) resulting in an overbroad and downright silly Court of Appeals decision that OARC is exempt from the Colorado Open Records Act.   Nancy Rice has recently enacted a new administrative order which purports to provide an even broader exemption for the courts from open records requests, I've been told, although I have not yet reviewed it.  Oh my, such hubris for the Colorado General Assembly to think it can pass a law making COURT personnel files and JUDGE communications open for public perusal!  The courts are busy protecting criminal enterprises engaged in by judges and attorneys, don't you get it, you silly legislators?

"Supreme Court Scofflaws" is the title of my blog post coming soon.

11.  American Water Development, Inc.:  Lawyer David Robbins was so upset that I had gotten a motion he'd co-filed denied, and so fearful that I might be working on a motion for summary judgment which would end his multi-year billing frenzy, that he assaulted me physically in his office, then went behind my back to my supervisors, state legislators, the governor, the farmers in the San Luis Valley (his clients), and my boss Attorney General Duane Woodard, telling them I was "causing problems in the case" in 1989-90.  He got me removed from the case and fired from my job as an assistant attorney general.  I then had the "pleasure" of meeting up with this sociopath again in connection with Animas-La Plata.

(Although I was not involved in it, I should say a word about the boondoggle Robbins dragged the State of Colorado through for at least 15 years in maintaining Colorado's frivolous defense to Kansas's suit for damages caused by Colorado farmers pumping water which belonged to Kansas under the Arkansas River Compact through their wells for 30 or 40 years.  This unlawful activity was conducted with the full knowledge of state water officials.  That suit cost the State of Colorado about $46 million; but, hey, Dave got his six mil in fees, so what are we worried about?)

12.  Glenn Gerard vs. Beneficial Finance:  Another  serious and substantial case involving a man whose mobile home was liened without notice to him, and then deliberately wrecked, by the criminal racket known then as Beneficial Finance Company, one participant in which was our judge, Stephen Munsinger.  

13.  There is, of course, my run for Attorney General as the Green Party candidate in 2002, when I went around talking publicly about many of the above acts, including on the radio a few times, until the "Powers That Be" shut that down and (I believe) threatened the radio hosts who'd had me on.  

Finally, there are the cases I filed, myself, along with my Spring Creek Ranch client Gerald Lewis, in  federal court, over the disciplinary proceedings OARC pursued me with beginning in 2006, whereby this group, headed by lawyer-impersonator John Gleason, actively interfered with ongoing cases and colluded with my litigation opponents, in order to remove me from the practice of law, thus ensuring my clients' defeat.  If you will review the Animas-La Plata, Spring Creek Ranch, and Barilla v. Magness entries above, you will begin to understand who needed to get rid of me, and why.

In federal court, Lewis and I were denied every single one of the rights guaranteed litigants in federal court--our cases were slam-dunked, without disclosures being done, let alone discovery; a total travesty, more evidence that the federal judges and magistrates' first duty is not to see that justice is done, but to protect their friends on the state bench who are committing crimes. 

But I will have the last laugh, because I have uncovered the unsavory background of John Gleason.  I cannot stress enough that the placement of this liar, hypocrite, incompetent pervert in the sensitive and powerful position he held for 30 years at OARC is unequivocal evidence that the Colorado judicial system is not operating in conformity with any norms of neutrality or merit.  I have hooked a key fat slug in the cesspool and am drawing a whole plug of disgusting stinking trash out of the pipe along with him.  Another blog post about all of this will appear shortly.

*Here's the evidence I have establishing that Hayes is responsible for the "AbovetheLaw.com" crap.  In 2010--over three years after the initial publication of my embarrassing, but not unethical--in fact, excessively scrupulous--pleadings, I ran across a puff piece written by two lawyers with the firm of Latham and Watkins in Washington, D.C., cautioning attorneys to "be careful what they write on the web," using their article as yet another excuse to provide an image of the unfortunate motion for extension of time I filed.  That image is on abovethelaw.com and comes up over and over in Google results on my name.

I've never had any contact with Latham & Watkins--but that is the firm Hayes went to between his appointment under Clinton and his reappointment under Obama.  Because the AbovetheLaw.com posts were over three years old by the time the article appeared, these lawyers would not have known about it--unless they were told about it by the guy who was responsible for it, a partner at their firm, Mr. Fucktard David J. Hayes, Jr.  I'm sure he was laughing his head off when he suggested they write this article.  And frankly, this is another hallmark of the depravity of Jesuits.  They don't care who gets hurt.  All that matters is that they win--and their frauds go undiscovered.

A Very Weird Coincidence

I've previously written about my suspicions re the physician-assisted suicide of my niece, Brittany Maynard, in Oregon.  My conversations with the Crown Funeral Home/Cascade Cremation Center established that, although the director signed the death certificate, the home never actually dealt with a body. "She is not in the system," the employee said.

The story gets weirder.  I came across this article about the earlier untimely death in Oregon of Brittany's friend Tyler James Dawson.

Note, first, that it is the Crown Mortuary which ran the tribute.  Kind of funny--wouldn't you agree?--that this young man's "dear adopted sister and good friend" Brittany Maynard Diaz (and "dear adopted aunt" and "second mother" Debbie Ziegler Holmes) are there in the guy's last hours, when even his own parents and siblings are not. It's also strange that both of them, Brittany and Tyler--these two close friends from Southern California--end up dying in Oregon within months of each other, in the "care" of the same funeral home. 

The picture of the decedent in the group photo looks like the same as the one of him with the trout, except reversed, with a lampshade stuck on his head (probably to cover up the original cap), and the creepy white decal on the black shirt blacked out.  It looks like the same decal on the cap.  And is he really holding that fish?  It looks pasted onto his hand.  His right shoulder in the group photo does not look real, either.  So, I think Tyler James Dawson, or at least his death, is a fake.  His mother (Sherri Wheeler) comments, "Don't think of him as gone away his journey's just begun..."  Hmm.

So this man dies in June 2014, and Brittany later that year.  "Mighty convenient if you want to disappear a couple," as one astute friend of mine has observed. I should explain:  I think Brittany may have gone to work for the CIA, under an alias.

The tribute says there was to be another memorial service for Tyler in Southern California later, but I did not find any mention of that through Google. 

Brittany attended Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, California, for her first two years of college.  She transferred to Berkeley as a junior in Fall 2004.  So she could have known Tyler at Saddleback--if he existed.  I found a Tyler J. Dawson who was apparently a sophomore at UCLA in 2005, but no image.  And I did find a birth certificate for him in California public records.

The man standing directly behind Brittany in the photo is of a Jeff Daspit.  The Google entries for Daspit I looked at originally, at the library, contained references to an organization with a Hebrew name I'd never heard of before.  Later, those entries did not come up.  What did come up on Daspit was that he is an "executive recruiter" for "Fluid Intelligence," or was.  Maybe he "recruited" Brittany and Debbie for this dry run of another fake death of a newbie CIA agent.  Daspit lives in Costa Mesa, CA. 

As for Danny Dawson, another person mentioned in the tribute, there is NO birth certificate for him.  So I wonder if he was born Tyler James and changed his name.  A Danny Dawson graduated from Berkeley in 2001, but I was not able to access his picture in the UC Berkeley yearbook (via ancestry.com), although it may be there, with a bad page number in the index.  A "Daniel Dawson" commented on the Facebook pages of both Brittany and Debbie. 

Is Danny Dawson Brittany's real husband?

***A message to Brittany:  Brittany, if you read this, please contact your father.  The shocking news of your demise had a very serious negative impact on his health.  Fortunately, he appears now to be recovered.  I am sure he will not reveal your secret.  He loves you.  I would like you to contact me, too.  I also promise not to reveal your secret.  (However, I am not taking my blog posts off the web!  I will just leave them the way they are and say no more.) 

I hope you are having a fun and full life wherever you are, punkin.

John Gleason, Mob Plant

This is my fourth post about John Scott Gleason, who was employed by the Colorado Supreme Court's Office of Disciplinary Counsel from 1987 to 2013, becoming its head in 1998 to oversee the office's transformation to "Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel"--when all power was consolidated in himself--and implement significant changes in the attorney disciplinary process in Colorado.  These changes have had the effect of furthering official corruption in the state and denying its targets due process.

Even before I became the undeserving target of Mr. Gleason for five years--without, let's be clear, any complaint from a client, ever, in my 20-year history as a lawyer--I had serious questions about the operation he ran, since the office refused to investigate legitimate complaints I had both filed myself, and knew had been filed by others.  Let it be said, however, that Gleason was not the first to look the other way when presented with attorney misconduct, since one of his predecessors, Michael Henry, was also dirty.  Henry moved on to protect official corruption in various capacities within the City and County of Denver.  But I digress. 

First, to review my earlier findings:  I  established that Gleason has no baccalaureate degree from an undergraduate college, and that he made misleading statements in online bios implying that he did.  Since then he has lied outright about having a degree from Bowling Green State University.  In the online bios and other settings he also stated that he had significant experience as both a criminal prosecutor and civil litigator before coming to OARC, when he had no such experience, at all.  Nada.  We could get additional confirmation of these facts from his application for employment with OARC, except the Supreme Court won't give it to me.  Never mind that that application, along with the rest of his personnel file, is a public record:  the OARC has withheld it in violation of law.  This is a strong admission that merit did not figure into the decision to hire John Gleason.  Something else was much more important.  Maybe there is not even any application on file, at all.

I've pointed out that Gleason closed on his new house in Highlands Ranch in September 1987 before the ad for the position he was hired to at OARC was even published in The Colorado Lawyer.  This is more strong evidence that he was preselected for the office.  Gleason has, by the way, stated in a sworn affidavit filed in response to my records request in Oregon that he started work at OARC in October 1988, apparently to make it appear his house purchase was unrelated to the OARC job.  Unfortunately for him, his start date, even if it really was in October 1988, is not dispositive of the issue.  The ad ran only once, in the September 1987 issue (with an August 25, 1987, deadline); also, my notes from the 1988-89 Colorado Legal and Financial Directory, which places him at OARC, say the book was stamped "Received August 1988" by the library.  So he was at OARC, or had at least been assured that would be his address, before the directory's cut-off date, which was April 1988. 

I've pointed out that the law school Gleason attended requires an LSAT score only in the 25th percentile for admission, and expressed strong doubt that anyone who scored that low on the LSAT would be able to pass the Colorado Bar Exam.  I questioned whether someone just "gave him a bar ticket," therefore.  I now have support for that thesis.  On the Board of Law Examiners when Gleason was admitted to the Colorado Bar in 1985 were two powerful lawyers, James Lyons and John Moye.  While there were others on that board I would also be suspicious of, these two were co-owners of the Bar/Bri Bar Review course at the time--a course I even took myself (in Spring 1987) to prepare for the bar exam.  This is a clear conflict of interest.  These two men had access to the actual bar exams before they were administered, and even oversaw the grading.  As for the bar review course, it is the more odd, because Moye and Lyons were not exactly unemployed when they had this business on the side:  both were partners in powerful law firms pulling down big bucks.  Bar/Bri focuses solely on the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE), a standardized multiple choice test.  At the time I took the Colorado Bar Exam, 1-1/2 years after Gleason reportedly did, if your MBE score exceeded 150, you passed automatically.  They did not even grade your essays.  That is how I was admitted, myself.  The Bar/Bri sample exams were dead ringers for the MBE, as I recall. 

Lyons and Moye are part of what can aptly be called the Irish Catholic Mafia which runs Denver, as well as the State of Colorado.  I've previously written about Catholic control of the bench in Colorado, which is also the case with the U.S. Supreme Court.  (Ditto for law enforcement.)  I will do more on Moye and Lyons in future.  Suffice it at this point to express an opinion--shared, I know, by other members of the Colorado Bar--that these two do not necessarily have awesome lawyering skills.  They are better characterized as "fixers."  I suggest that Moye and Lyons concocted a plan to protect white-collar crime within the Colorado bench and bar by installing the compromised John Gleason as Colorado Attorney Regulation Counsel, and that they figured out how to get him admitted without actually passing, or maybe even taking, the bar exam.  Of course, they also had to install their puppet Mary Mullarkey as Chief Justice of the Colorado Supreme Court, so she could sign the paper elevating Gleason to top dog at OARC. Maybe, now I think about it, they installed ALL the judges, ensuring their loyalty by means we can only guess at (as I have, in Billy Lucero's Inquisition).  Maybe it was a quid pro quo for getting them a pass on the bar exam.

Many other things about Gleason's background raise serious red flags.  His online bios (Exhibits 1 and 2) fail to mention, for example, that he spent nine years in the Ohio Air National Guard (a coveted spot for a man who was draft-eligible during the Vietnam War, as we know from George W. Bush's achieving a similar cushy placement).  When I learned of his service--again, not a word of which appeared in those bios--I obtained a few records from the Ohio Air National Guard, but--just as in Colorado--have been denied others, without any legal basis.  One I did get is this letter dated March 7, 2014, which for "Duty Status" states "Discharged," without saying "honorably" or "dishonorably."  In addition, it says Gleason's service lasted from Sept. 17, 1968, to April 10, 1978, but how can this be?  He started work at the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Department in Colorado on November 19, 1977.  Did he go AWOL?  Shades of Dubya!  In addition, the last page of the letter, listing his duty postings, ends on Nov. 11,1972, yet I had asked for all his duty postings, so it should have ended April 10, 1978.  That's six years unaccounted for of the 9-1/2 years he was in the service.  Lastly, and most intriguing, is the entry, "Transcript of Court Martial Trial:  Not in File."  I have spent over a year trying very hard to get that transcript, or even confirm it exists.  Although I've had indications it does, I have been stonewalled in my attempts to get it.

This could very well be because, as Gleason stated in one interview, he received "top secret" military training.  This sounds like CIA.  CIA works hand-in-hand with the Mafia (see Pete Brewton's book, George Bush, the Mafia, and the CIA); I have come to believe the Mafia also serves as the enforcement arm of the Vatican, as well.  In other words, I hypothesize that Gleason went through a court-martial, and they made a deal to sweep it under the rug in return for his taking on the future role of High Poobah of the Colorado Bar Moral Police, in which he would use his power unethically ever after to protect criminal conduct by attorneys and judges.  This devil's bargain would explain why I cannot get records.

It's also weird that Gleason was a medic in the military.  He never breathed a word of this, either, prior to his application for the job in Oregon (the equivalent position to the one he held in Colorado, which he was hired to in early 2013, and kept for a year).  An acquaintance has suggested the court martial may have been for a drug offense, which would make sense if he were a medic.

There is other evidence that Gleason was not honorably discharged.  In his file at the Arapahoe County Sheriff's Office, where he worked from 1977 to 1982, there is no certificate of honorable discharge.  There is such a certificate in the personnel file of his boss, former sheriff Ed Nelson  (pp. 38-41 of 130), reminding us of the simple fact that anyone with a service record employed by law enforcement--not to mention the Colorado Supreme Court--MUST PROVE HE WAS HONORABLY DISCHARGED.  Not Gleason, though.  Another pass.  Ed Nelson's file also contains an FBI report, copy of his driver's license, photos, and a completed application responding to much more intrusive questions about his past, such as credit history, criminal convictions, health, etc., than Gleason was required to answer. 

Gleason claims, on his Oregon job application, that he was honorably discharged, but says it occurred in 1977.  He has to say that because his service, in Ohio, should have ended before he started his new job with ACSO in Colorado on Nov. 19, 1977.   I'll bet he was not happy to see I have these records from the NPRC saying he was discharged April 10, 1978.   Guess that's what comes of not actually having a certificate of honorable discharge in one's possession:  he doesn't even know the date he supposedly mustered out.  (Oregon told me, by the way, that they did no background investigation of Gleason before hiring him!) 

It behooves us to turn to Pat Sullivan for a moment:  he was Gleason's supervisor at ACSO and gave him positive reviews, which are in Gleason's file.  On the sudden death from heart attack of Sheriff Nelson, who held office only a short period, Sullivan acceded to the position of sheriff, a job he then held for 20 years.  He was lauded all over the place; the new Arapahoe County Justice Center was named for him; and his ACSO personnel file is stuffed full of commendations, including one from Bill Clinton.  (Interestingly, it also lacks the documents in Ed Nelson's file:  no dates of military service are even given, no certificate of honorable discharge is in the file, almost no meaningful questions are on the application).  The testimonials in Sullivan's file were obviously solicited by the creep himself--and "creep" is what the people of Colorado finally learned they had in Sullivan when he was arrested in 2010 for offering to trade meth for gay sex, and his male lover's body was found floating in the Platte River.  One intriguing story claimed Sullivan had coerced jail inmates with offers to bond out in return for sex.  The Denver Post, true to form, whooshed all of this off the front page as soon as it could, and Sullivan got probation, true to form for "Colorado law enforcement."  So when you see the commendations Sullivan (and others) made of John Gleason which are in Gleason's file, take them with a grain of salt.  These guys create false testimonials to put in each other's files.  This is what keeps them in power. 

And that leads to the fact that, at least since 2007, Gleason has moonlighted as CEO of a large youth sports organization he founded, called "Warriors Youth Sports."  This would seem a full-time job in itself--yet here he was also "working 60- to 70-hour weeks" for the Oregon State Bar, not to mention as Attorney Regulation Counsel for the Colorado Supreme Court before then.  I was contacted by a parent of a child involved in this organization who was angry about the expensive uniforms, which could only be bought at the shop run by the "nonprofit" Warriors (which owns a big field house).  The parent told me Warriors had put on a fundraiser in November 2013 featuring illegal gambling.  I agreed it looked illegal, and brought it to the attention of three different law enforcement agencies.  Again, nothing happened.  More important than the gambling is the implication this kind of access to youth has, given the abundantly documented pedophilia within the Catholic Church and its cover-ups of sexual misconduct by priests.  As ugly as I know it seems to say so, that Gleason is running this youth sports organization sets up the possibility that he is a procurer of children for Church higher-ups, another reason he has been protected and, indeed, celebrated. 

In the OARC job Gleason also not only decided which attorneys to go after, and which to be given a pass, but advised the Commission on Judicial Discipline and the Attorney Regulation Advisory Committee.  All discipline connected with not only attorneys, but judges, was in Gleason's discretion, therefore.  So when I complained to the Attorney Regulation Advisory Committee about Attorney Regulation employee April McMurrey, the lying Nazi whore Gleason sicced on me for four years, my complaint went to a shill named David Stark, who referred it right back to--you guessed it--John Gleason, McMurrey's boss.  Another clear conflict, of course.  Complaints about judicial misconduct go to the JDC, which then also turned to Gleason for "legal advice"--and of course he would almost always advise that there's nothing to go forward on, because he was there not to protect the public, but to protect the criminal enterprise.  You might call John Gleason a keystone species.  The whole Ecosystem falls apart if you take him out.

A last word on the man has to do with his childhood, again not as he has represented.  Gleason referred to his youth as "hardscrabble" in one interview, and said he was a "hard kid to raise."  "Hardscrabble" sounds like poverty.  Yet his father was an executive with La Choy foods who traveled to China shortly after Nixon's visit in 1972, and many times afterwards.  One obituary reported that 10 men and women came from China to attend John Gleason's mother's funeral in 1992, in Bryan, Ohio.  This suggests not only that the father caused money to flow into Chinese pockets, but also that he may have been CIA.  (Consider also John's cushy placement during the Vietnam war, suggesting his pa had clout.)  John's wedding announcement, from 1968, says they had 400 guests at a buffet dinner reception, also a sign of money.

One might hope that the Colorado Supreme Court would realize how corrupt its having elevated this unqualified man and pathological liar, John Gleason, to the important and sensitive post of Attorney Regulation Counsel appears--and truly was--and clean house, but its members have shown they are not the solution.  They are the problem.  The procedures implemented under Gleason do not protect either the public or the target attorneys, as I will be discussing in detail in future.  "Clean house" means to get rid of Gleason's acolyte and successor James Coyle, as well as the other ethically challenged employees of that office.  Coyle, like Gleason, is a liar, scofflaw, and abuser of power, too.

I will in future write about Gleason's bizarre caper in Arizona, where he was imported by the Arizona Supreme Court--outrageously--to remove the threat of prosecution corrupt judges there faced from the county attorney, by DISBARRING that POPULARLY ELECTED PUBLIC OFFICIAL, Andrew Thomas, along with two of his deputies, so he could no longer do the job the citizenry elected him to do. 

As I found out myself, you don't make use of RICO when Gleason's around.  Gleason trumps Congress.

Policy Objectives of the Staged Tragedy

[This is a continuation of "Brittany Maynard, My Undead Niece."]


Lophatt, a commenter on the blog where I learned of Brittany's demise, once aptly characterized the continual hoaxes we are subjected to in the U.S., disguised as news, as the "advance of policy through staged tragedies."  

The Brittany "suicide" is one such staged tragedy, but why assisted suicide should be pushed by the governing elites has had me puzzled.  On the face of it, it seems humane.  However, the use of a beautiful 29-year-old as the poster child--rather than the emaciated 90-year-old we would expect to take advantage of the law--has made me look deeper.  There were media reports that Brittany, in her last week of life, was even seen at a Las Vegas dance club!  The message is thus, "Assisted suicide is trendy!  You silly terminal cancer patients wasting away, unable to walk across a room:  cut your life off now and you, too, can be a celebrity!" 

Who profits from legalization of assisted suicide?  One is the decedent's survivors, since a suicide which is legally treated as a death from natural causes means there are no hold-ups to getting your pay-out on that life insurance policy.  The suicide also reduces hospital bills, relieving insurers from paying for protracted end-of-life care.  A big beneficiary of increasing the availability of suicide, and making it trendy for young people, would be the tissue- and organ-harvesting entities.  A 29-year-old is a goldmine, because her tendons, skin, organs, corneas, bones, and other tissues are in great shape.  Even her body and head, as ghoulish as it may sound, can be used in crash and ballistics tests.  Body parts from a single human, according to this disturbing expose in the Orange County Register, were, in 2000, reportedly worth $220,000.  Fifteen years later, maybe we can say $1,000,000.  Finally, in this case (as in Sandy Hook) there is also the inevitable "Go Fund Me" website.  Compassion and Choices could not even tell me how much money the Brittany Fund had brought in.

How "humane" is it to put pressure on sick people, to make them feel they have a duty to die and get out of the way?  The availability of assisted suicide muddies the waters for doctors trying to reconcile their Hippocratic Oath with what the law is now telling them is acceptable conduct.  Why involve doctors at all in this decision?  Everyone knows of the remedy of self-help:  running the car engine in a closed garage, for example.

Oregon's law provides legal cover for the making of false reports, including the types and amounts of controlled substances dispensed.  The only reason I was able to chase down any facts, at all, about the medical and funeral homes involved with Brittany is because I am related to her.  Members of the public generally are not able to obtain her death certificate so can't find out even that much, let alone that the people who filled it out lied; and even I, as a relative, could not discover basic facts I needed simply to establish whether or not she really did kill herself.  Her grieving father, in particular, has a right to know.  Every salient detail was kept from me, with the phony excuse of "privacy restrictions."  

Not only relatives, but the public generally, used to be able to find such things out, but there has been a systematic closing of these doors.  "Privacy laws" in reality enable fraud and should be repealed everywhere.  As a pro-life site I found discusses, that death is stated as occurring from natural causes, when, instead, it occurs through intake of a lethal drug, is itself a false report.  Lying is enshrined as ethical practice by this law.  This site makes other good points I won't recap here; but as one writer says, "“When a ‘right to die’ becomes settled law, soon the right translates into a duty.” 

Update, 8/23/17:  A man named Bradley Williams (President of Montanans Against Assisted Suicide), who, like me, has been commenting negatively on articles which glorify assisted suicide, discovered that the promoters attempted to include prisoners in the California bill that legalized assisted suicide there.  He:

"... noticed on the Compassion & Choices website of June 2016 an event listed for July that establish them in the legal organ donor system.  Studying all the existing legal assisted suicide laws in Oregon, Washington, California and Colorado reveals a covert, nontransparent system after the sign-up process that can allow organ trafficking to thrive since there is zero oversight. Apparently C&C is preparing to gain a market share of lucrative organ trafficking by being involved in the legal system, as indicated by their sponsoring an organ donation event in Coral Gables, Florida, in July 2016.  They have the same business plan and share board members with Planned Parenthood."

Brittany Maynard, My Undead Niece

In October 2014, a story flooded media outlets everywhere around the world about the tragedy of Brittany Maynard, a 29-year-old with an aggressive brain tumor known as a Glioblastoma multiforme, who had decided to commit assisted suicide in Oregon under Oregon's "Death with Dignity" law. 

I learned about it from a post on a blog I read--and my jaw dropped.  Brittany is my niece, but has been estranged from our family for several years.  Her mother, Debbie Ziegler, and my brother divorced in around 1987, when Brittany was three. 

I have investigated "Brittany's suicide," and have proof that it did not occur and Brittany is not dead.  The event was a psy op perpetrated by the CIA-controlled media on the public, to expand availability of assisted suicide.  This is the more clear now, seeing Debbie giving press conferences at the California legislature in favor of such a bill, along with Dan Diaz, Brittany's putative husband.  No truly grieving parent or husband would be able to do this.

Something else they wouldn't do is fail to investigate whether a cure was available before agreeing to a beloved 29-year-old's plan to kill herself.  Turns out a cure is available.  On March 27, 2015, 60 Minutes revealed that Duke Medical School researchers have been regularly shrinking Glioblastoma multiforme tumors to nothing by injecting them with polio viruses, achieving complete cures.  There are hundreds of published papers on the web about similar successes with oncolytic viruses.  Oops:  looks like Debbie, Brittany, and Dan overlooked that research, in their obsession with ending Brittany's life.

Faux Photos.
Another clear sign this is a hoax has been the media's use of photos of women who are NOT Brittany.  Here is one of my photos of BrittanyHere's another and here's one on a Christmas card sent by my brother's family in 2001.  (There are more childhood photos at the bottom.)  Compare these with this bogus photo on People Magazine's Oct. 27, 2014, cover, of a model they declare is "Brittany Maynard photographed exclusively for People, Oct. 11, 2014."  This same model appears on pages 64, 65, and 69.  Anyone can see Brittany has an elfin look which the impostor does not have, and a broader smile, with upturned corners.  Same with the photos of  "Brittany with her family at the Grand Canyon," and a very large "Brittany strolling with her husband on a forested path":  none of these are Brittany.  While a few real pictures are interspersed, they do not include a full-face close-up as an adult.  She is in profile, wearing dark glasses, or photographed from far away.  Brittany thus could go anywhere to resume life under an alias, and no one would recognize her. 

The video posted Oct. 6 (which shows a woman with a chubby face, which the People cover model does not have as of Oct. 11!) does have some similarity with Brittany, particularly in the voice.  However, it is possible to use a model to create facial expressions in a video of someone else, in real time.  I believe that is what has been done here. 

I need to poke fun at the still shown in the video which has Debbie's head inclined at a rakish angle towards yet another model, pooching her lips.  It's clear Debbie's head was simply pasted on.  They are both wearing "Love" T-shirts.  When I saw that, I said, "How very Sandy Hook" (Sandy Hook being yet another psy op). 
***Update Oct. 6, 2015:  that bit has been removed from the video!

CIA connection.
One thing that bothered me when I was working this out was how the CIA/media hoax network would know Debbie and Brittany were available to participate in this fraud.  I then remembered Debbie's younger brother, David Q. Ziegler, and found he is in Army intelligence.  This connection can fully explain it--along with financial difficulties we know Debbie was having (another thing she has in common with many of the Sandy Hook participants).  Another is probably Adrian Diaz, discussed below.  One blogger who is suspicious of Brittany's demise has linked Compassion & Choices, the group which sponsored her suicide, to George Soros. 

Absence of records at the funeral home.
There is a death certificate for Brittany.  While this may seem like a show-stopper, it is fraudulent.

The most important evidence came from the funeral home, Crown Memorial Center (which runs the Cascade Cremation Center).  I went to their website and put the last name "Maynard" into their "Search for Tributes" bar shortly after I received the death certificate, and nothing came up.  Same with "Diaz."  So I called Crown to ask whether there was an online memory book for Brittany Maynard, or a service, and the young woman who answered was puzzled.  She said, "I don't have any information.  She is not in the system."  I then asked her whether it was customary to cremate a body quickly after death, and she said yes.  Note that the death certificate states the date of disposition of the body as "TBD"--"to be determined"--even though it was filled out by the funeral director 17 days after the death.

The employee told me to call back between 12:30 and 1:00 to speak to the director, Tiffany Hubbard.  When I called at 12:32, my call was routed to a male at another location, who was verbally abusive.  So--get that:  I am a family member asking about my tragically deceased niece, and he's nasty.  I asked HIM whether cremation had taken place and he said it WOULD have been, and then corrected himself to say that it DID, "shortly after death."  But, as noted, the death certificate says "TBD" and was signed by Tiffany Hubbard on Nov. 18, when death reportedly occurred Nov. 1.  So he was lying.  When I asked him whether a service would be held, he babbled, then said, "The family has been very private about this."  I laughed out loud, saying this "family" has been the least private in the history of the world!  The man then said Brittany's website fulfilled the memory book function (and, indeed, no one who did not have the death certificate would have any idea Crown was the funeral parlor which handled the body.  Only I had that information.).  I told him that the MAYNARDS were family--that my brother was both Brittany's legal and biological father, and he had received no notification of her wedding, her cancer, her death, or her funeral (and there was no funeral, either).  Note another false entry on the death certificate for the phone number of Dan Diaz.  It says "not available."  They don't get to say that.  Oregon law requires the funeral home to obtain personal data about the decedent from the next of kin, and the form requires a phone number for that person, stated as Dan Diaz. 

Another problem is that the Social Security Death Index does not have Brittany's name on it, even though the SSN is listed on the death certificate.  (I redacted all but the last four digits.)  Also,  Brittany's voter registration was cancelled, but that was the result of an email I sent to the Secretary of State Dec. 11, 2014, asking whether it was still active.  By law the county health registrar, who receives the report of death, is supposed to give notice within five days to the county clerk to cancel the voter registration.   Instead, that notice came from me, through the SOS.  That is proof that no report was made to the county health registrar.  The most important thing, however, is the Crown employee's statement, "She is not in the system."  This means:  no online memory book, no funeral, no records of body transport or cremation as required by law, no report to the SSA, no notification to the county health registrar or county voting registrar, and no bills.  All these omissions by the funeral director of actions she would routinely take indicate normal procedures were not followed.  The reason has to be that there was no body.

Note that the location of death--the residence--on the death certificate (3108 Vista Verde Terrace, Portland, OR) is different from Brittany's voter registration address (7518 SW Roanoke Dr. N., Wilsonville, OR).

Doctor who signed death certificate did not diagnose or treat her for cancer.
The doctor, Eric Wyatt Walsh, signed the death certificate on Nov. 13, twelve days after death.  He should've done it within 48 hours.  He certified that the cause of death was “Glioblastoma multiforme.” 

Walsh gave an address for himself which was not the address associated with his license.  Only by asking for an investigation from the State Medical Board did I learn it was the address of Gentiva, a large hospice corporation.  Dr. Walsh himself then called me, but, like the funeral parlor guy, would not give me any real information, due to "privacy restrictions," even though dead people don't have privacy rights.  Their medical records are subject to disclosure, under Oregon law.  I asked him when he started treating Brittany, whether he is the one who had prescribed the lethal drug, whether he had seen a body, and other important things.  He would not answer any of my questions.  He did admit he is not an oncologist--his area of practice is "palliative care."  He also said that, in Oregon, the doctor who signs the death certificate is not required to see a body!  I had previously learned that, under Oregon's Death with Dignity law, the death certificate lists the death as from "natural causes," even though it was suicide.

Since Dr. Walsh is not an oncologist, how would he have known if Brittany's condition was terminal, or whether she even had cancer?   He wouldn't, of course.

This is a serious problem. Under Oregon law, the death certificate may be signed only by the doctor who was in charge of the care of the patient for the illness or condition that resulted in death.  The “Death with Dignity Act” similarly defines “attending physician” as "the physician who has primary responsibility for the care of the patient and treatment of the patient’s terminal disease."  Thus, the attending physician is the one who must sign the death certificate.  The attending physician must also … "(a) Make the initial determination of whether a patient has a terminal disease,” and take other steps, including referring the patient to a consulting physician.Clearly, someone who is not an oncologist could not qualify as an "attending physician."  He is not competent to diagnose cancer, determine the cause of death, or sign the death certificate.  It would, moreover, not be legal for Brittany to receive her initial diagnosis in California, as she claimed, and then move to Oregon to die.

In short, Dr. Walsh did not treat Brittany for the illness she reportedly died from, since he did not have the expertise to examine her, read her Xrays, or decide whether her condition was terminal; and the initial diagnosis was not made by him.

So both the doctor and funeral director have made false certificates. 

Brittany's phone still active.
Brittany's cellphone is still active as of Jan. 25, 2015, so someone is paying the bill.  I left a message for her on or around Nov. 4, 2014.  (She did not call back.)  I have emailed her several times, most recently in June 2017, too, and the email does not bounce.

Bogus date chosen.
When I first watched Brittany's video, she made an issue out of the date she'd chosen to kill herself, Nov. 1st, because it was the "day after my husband's birthday," which she said was October 30th.  My notes from the video are here.  However, the day after October 30th is October 31st, not November 1st.  Worse, Dan Diaz's birthday, according to ancestry.com, is October 26th.  I mentioned all these things in an email to my friend Wendy, at the time.  When I reviewed Brittany's video again sometime later, all the statements about her husband's birthday had been taken out of it.  

So:  that whole story was fake.  Importantly, Brittany didn't know her "husband's" birthday.


MRI/Xrays probably fake.
There are discrepancies in the radiologic images from the University of California San Francisco shown in Brittany's video.  The employee I spoke to in the Radiology department said (1) Brittany had brought her first image to them from another location, which was not a hospital, as she could tell from encryption; (2) Brittany did have appointments at UCSF Radiology, but patients are not required to produce an ID; and (3) Brittany did not retrieve her records from UCSF when she went to get a second opinion.  When the employee volunteered this last bit I could tell she found that strange.  To recap:  Brittany did not take her UCSF records to Oregon, although she said in her video that she had had to "find a new team," since assisted suicide is not legal in California; and the doctor who "treated" her in Oregon was not an oncologist.  He was not able to make any assessment of whether she had cancer or was terminal, did not have the images, and was not required to see a body.  Yet this man stated under oath that she died of Glioblastoma multiforme.

As for the tumor Xray or MRI image with Brittany's name typed on it, when I was talking over this matter with my Aunt Pat (Brittany's great-aunt), she said, "Oh, but of course X-rays can be faked."  That possibility had not even occurred to me.  Aunt Pat knew this because she reads a lot of mysteries.  I investigated and found outfits online which sell fake X-rays as gag gifts.

Brittany was also treated at the UCSF hospital under a name which was not then her legal name.  Her marriage certificate, dated Sept. 29, 2012, shows she changed her name to "Brittany Lauren Diaz."  Adrian Diaz, the brother of Dan, who (strangely) officiated at their wedding, holds the position of "Associate Director, State Government Relations" at the University of California Berkeley Chancellor's Office; has held other positions with UC Berkeley; and interned with the San Francisco Mayor's Office of Communications.  In his UC position he may very well have access to all kinds of records, maybe even UCSF patient records.  Adrian Diaz now has been giving interviews as one of the witnesses who attended Brittany in her last moments, although she did not mention he would be by her side, in her video.  My guess is that he is a controller of this operation.

New info as of 10-6-15:  I have the Brittany X-rays.  These are huge files on three CD's.  I cannot make much of them, but will provide copies to anyone on request.  I do note that the first X-ray or MRI, taken Jan. 1, 2014, at 7:00 a.m., is of her chest, which does not jibe with the story of headaches and a seizure which brought Brittany to the emergency room on New Year's Day.  A brain X-ray was not taken until Jan. 2, 2014.  In addition, the notes on one of the CD's say, "CT performed at an outside institution on 12/31."  More X-rays were taken by UCSF in August 2014, when Brittany and her "family" (I put that in quotes because it makes me mad) supposedly had been in Oregon for some time.

Reporter poseurs.
Along with the bogus photos People Magazine published, its interview with Debbie paints her as a struggling single mom who raised Brittany on her own, utterly false.  The New York Times parroted that view, listing Brittany's "survivors" as Debbie Ziegler and her stepfather Gary Holmes.  Huh?  Mr. Holmes has no legal or biological relationship to Brittany, while Brittany's real father--who has both--is not mentioned.  Nor were her little brother, aunts and uncle, cousins, and more on the Maynard side.  We were not involved in this caper and didn't know anything about it.  My brother has observed that this depiction of Debbie as Struggling Single Parent will be followed up by book and movie deals.  [AND HE WAS EXACTLY RIGHT:  SEE HERE.]

People also says Debbie is 56, when she is 58, and that Brittany and company moved to Oregon in June, when she registered to vote in Oregon in April.  Was there an advance team that took care of such things as the voter registration?  It appears the left hand did not know what the right hand was doing.

I attempted to correct the Wikipedia entry on Brittany, only to the extent of (1) noting that People Magazine had faked the photos; (2) Brittany had this whole crowd of Maynard family members out there that were not mentioned; and (3) Debbie and Brittany have a history as scammers, whose principal target in the past has been my brother.  My entry was immediately whooshed off Brittany's page and put onto my OWN "talk page" (which I didn't even know I had), which was then censored, so none of it is available, even though I volunteered to remove the reference to scamming.  I was told to email Wiki's legal department about my dispute, which I did--and I never got a response.  So Wikipedia, far from being the neutral, ethical, independent source of information it represents itself to be, is as much a shill for the governing elite as the rest of the mass media.  Even when I am telling it what the situation is, as a source with direct, first-hand knowledge, it prefers fictions published by CNN, The New York Times, Washington Post, Fox News, etc.

Who are these people repackaging press releases as fact, with the imprimatur of respected publications?  That not a single person reporting this story either made their own investigation or questioned the party line means there is no "Fourth Estate."  There is only a central monolith churning out lies for public consumption.  These "reporters" and their vaunted publications breach the public trust on an ongoing basis and should be skewered at every opportunity.  This event is yet more proof that U.S. media are the real TASS.  The Soviet Union is us.

Update:  here are a few more photos of Brittany, on a tribute my brother's family sent out in Christmas 2014, and some more.  They believe she must be dead because the media says so.  My brother has refused to read about what I have discovered and even stopped talking to me, because I did not convey my condolences.  .In case she reads this, he has told me he still loves her, despite the problems.  And of course I love her, too.

Update 10-12-15:  Have a look at this Facebook screenshot, in which Dan's cousin Vicky Garcia sympathizes with Brittany and Dan over the courageous decision they have had to make.  It is dated Oct. 12, 2012.  Brittany's diagnosis, according to her video, was Jan. 1, 2014. 

Update 4-17-17:  Have located a few more pictures of Brittany, which are here, here, and here, as well as a picture of the young Debbie Ziegler with my brother and my dad, who appear in other pictures.  (My dad's nickname for Brittany as a toddler, by the way, was "Miss Sparkle Plenty"!)
