DENVER AIRPORT SCAM
[CN -- The following does not necessarily reflect the views of
Conspiracy Nation. It merely reports what was said elsewhere.]
On or about October 6, 1994, Tom Valentine's guest on Radio Free
America (shortwave, 5.065 MHz, 9 pm cst, mon-fri) was a man
named Stew Webb. Mr. Webb has been looking into circumstances
surrounding the construction of the Denver International Airport.

- Well if I can recall, in the '60s, and even in the '70s, the
greatest money launderer of all was Meyer Lansky.
- Meyer Lansky has direct ties with these people and ties in with
'em. They're... I mean, go down to... If you want to get the
Meyer Lansky connection into these people and into Arizona, ask
yourself the question: Why is it in the same residential area
that Lansky was, and the Wrigley family? You've got Melman,
you've got the Inslaw software Dr. Earl Brian, you've got Ronald
Reagan, you've got Dino DiConcini (Dennis', the head of armed
services [committee], brother), you've got General John Singlaub,
who was running the drug operation in Arkansas for Bill Clinton.
And there's several other players down there. I've forgot all the
names of the people. But I mean, they're all interconnected...
- When you say, "down there", what are you talkin' about?
- Pardon me?
- Whereabouts are you talking about, "down there"?
- It's in Arizona. It's on Camelback Mountain.
- Oh! Like Scottsdale, and down in that way.
- It is down there. It's the most expensive real estate in Arizona.
They've all got second homes down there.
And Carl Lender(sp?), who started Charles Keating's, down there,
and the whole bit.
But here's, to give you a summary -- and I think it's important
that we get this out, Tom. A summary of what they've done on the
airport is basically this: They owned the land, then they
perpetuated the fraud that shoved the appraisals of the land up
five times, in a year, of what the actual value was. Then they
turn around and create three political action committees to pump
it down the American people's throat that they need a new
airport: "It's gonna create 100,000 new jobs to Denver," and it
didn't. Then they buy off government officials. And of course,
they put the U.S. attorney in place and they had two federal
judges bribed, paid off, and the whole bit. And I've got the guy
that was launderin' their bribes! They laundered it through M&L
Business Machines Company, that they tried to make it look like
(the U.S. attorney did) as though it was a "check kiting scandal"
when in fact it was money laundering!
- All right. We gotta take another break, so hang in there! Hold in
there. The U.S. attorney ruled that it was "check kiting" when it
was actually money laundering. We'll get back to that. My guest
is Stew Webb. The subject matter: the Denver airport scam. I'm
Tom Valentine, this is Radio Free America.
All right, we are back. And we are talking about scandal and, I'm
serious, about big, high scandal.
I want you to go ahead and finish where you were, and then I have
another question for ya...
- Well basically, Mike Norton, the U.S. attorney who's no longer in
office; Janet Reno fired all 92 of 'em across the nation. But he
was, the cover-up part is in this whole thing. And that's the
reason these men have never been prosecuted, because, you know,
they had him directly in their pocket. He owns apartments with
'em. He took a bribe, and he laundered a $2.5 million bribe
himself through M&L Business Machines Company. And the federal
judge laundered money through there, [the judge] that was
protecting Blinder Robinson, the company that was movin' the
money overseas to John Dix's house. The whole bit. I mean, M&L is
one of the key, instrumental companies, that was like Blinder
Robinson, that was movin' money.
But the problem is, the guy got greedy and decided to rip the bad
guys off for $150 million. And when he did, he threw it into
bankruptcy court, thinkin' that, "Well. I throw it in there and
all the records will be available and then they'll see it was
money laundering and I'll be out of the country and everybody'll
be in trouble and they'll be worryin' about protectin' their own
little rear ends. And I won't have to worry about this thing.
I'll be overseas, enjoyin' it."
Well, that didn't quite happen. Instead, Robert Joseph got
"popped" [i.e., murdered] faster than what he thought was gonna
But there were some interesting cover-ups in the M&L case. One of
the things was, one of the vice-presidents who used to work for
Leonard Melman's Flatiron Construction Company, by the name of
Patrick Gibbons(sp?), now, or was then, an M&L officer. When the
FBI, the "Federal Bureau of Idiots", in Denver, Colorado arrested
him, he had 27 weapons -- 22 [with] no serial numbers, 7 fully
automatic, 5 silencers, 20 kilos of cocaine, 200 pounds of
marijuana, 160 vials of human growth steroids, 140 vials of
animal growth steroids, 200 vials of anabolic steroids. He had 7
gym bags, each containing a crow bar, ski mask, and flashlight
(which sounds like burglars' tools). He also had literature on
laundering money to the Isle of Jersey...
- What'd this guy do for a living!?
- ...income tax. He also had passports for sale, citizenship
certificates for sale. And he even had letters from Federal
Deposit Insurance Corporation bank examiners saying which banks
would fail in the next 6 months! And do you know that Mike Norton
never prosecuted him for that!? And two federal judges,
magistrates, during his bond hearing asked the assistant U.S.
attorney, Mike Barrett(sp?), he says, "Mr. Barrett. How come Mr.
Gibbons is not being charged? And how come you're only asking for
$100,000 signature bond!?" And he says, "In camera, judge. In
camera." [CN -- Latin for "in chambers"(?)] In other words,
"Let's go in and take care of you and bribe you, judge, and let's
cover the thing up."
They let this guy out on $100,000 signature bond, and he had all
those items on him when he was arrested, in his home.
- Just like General Noriega, see? They let guys like that go.
That's really interesting! Where is he now?
- Patrick Gibbons is sittin' in jail for, I think it was a year-
and-a-half stint, for his fraud involving M&L Business Machines
where they ripped off some legitimate investors for about $6
- Well that was a year-and-a-half. Is he still in there?
- Yeah, a year-and-a-half. Now listen to the amount of... A man
who's busted for cocaine, if they had one kilo on him today, they
would get an automatic 10 years in jail on the minimum, mandatory
sentence guidelines that George Bush created back in 1988. How
come Mr. Patrick Gibbons has never even been charged for that?
Another question will be, why did Janet Day(sp?) of the Denver
Post cover it up when she was in the bond hearing, and the
judge brought it out, part of the information about this!? And
how come she never reported on it? Because of the cover-up of
the news media in Denver, Colorado!
The whole thing stinks, Tom. And...
- [laughs] It sure does.
- ...dealt with.
- I... You know, the guy's got silencers [laughs], cocaine. And
what'd they charge him with? Bad checks?
- They charged him for "check kiting"; gave him a year-and-a-half
when he had 200 pounds of marijuana and 20 kilos of cocaine and
letters from FDIC bank examiners saying, "Go steal some more money
before the bank collapses!" Come on.
- Only in America.
- Only in America!
