>>Interestingly, accompanying Wexler's application for the
license were the names of three people who could vouch for his character,
of whom was Modell's longtime friend George M. Steinbrenner III of
the president of American Ship Building Company and later the owner of the
New York Yankees major-league baseball team. Dan Topping and Del Webb sold
their interests in the New York Yankees to the Columbia Broadcasting System
in 1964. In 1973, Steinbrenner and his "committee of fifteen" purchased the
team from CBS. Among Steinbrenner's partners in the Yankees were auto
executive John DeLorean, Nelson Bunker Hunt, and Ohio real estate tycoon
Marvin Warner.<<

Marvin Warner was much more than a real estate tycoon.  See Pete Brewton's
book, page 280:

[In 1980 and 1981] Birbragher was laundering the cartel's drug money through
Great American Bank...owned by Marvin Warner, an Alabama native whose
businesses were based out of Cincinnati.  Like Charles Keating, his fellow
Cincinnatian, who also got caught in the savings-and-loan debacle, Warner is
full of arrogance, bluster and hubris, a man who thought his political
connections and influence mongering would save him, and when it didn't,
carped bitterly about government interference.

Warner got his start building houses after World War II.  In the late 1950s,
he bought Home State Savings in Ohio and prospered, investing in race horses
and professional sports teams.  In 1977, his support of Democrats paid off
when President Jimmy Carter appointed him U.S. Ambassador to Switzerland.
During his absence overseas, Warner hired Donald E. Beazley, a Miami banker
and former federal bank examiner, to run Great American.

Before Beazley joined Warner he had worked for a while for Guillermo
Hernandez-Cartaya, according to author James Ring Adams in The Big Fix.  CIA
asset Hernandez-Cartaya had gotten involved with Warner's close associates
at the fraud-infested E.S.M. Securities.  In fact, E.S.M. files contained a
note from Hernandez-Cartaya thanking an E.S.M. principal for his offer to
help in the sale or purchase of Jefferson Savings and Loan in McAllen,
Texas, from Lloyd Bentsen's family.
[In case you aren't familiar with Texas geography, McAllen is on the Mexican

When Warner returned from Switzerland in 1979, he took Beazley's place at
Great American Bank.  Beazley then jumped to the presidency of the Nugan
Hand Bank in Australia.  That bank, the subject of a book by Jonathan
Kwitny, The Crimes of Patriots, was crawling with ex-CIA (if there is such a
things as ex-CIA) and former high-ranking military officials, and was used
in drug-money laundering, weapons transactions and the cheating of American
investors, among other things...

[Then Brewton goes  on to Paul Helliwell, Castle Bank & Trust, Edwin Wilson,
Ted Shackley, etc.]

After Beazley left Nugan Hand..., he returned to Florida banking...as
president of City National Bank of Miami...[which] was owned by Alberto
Duque, a Colombian whose father was a wealthy coffee magnate.  The attorney
for the bank was Stephen Arky, Marvin Warner's son-in-law....

Arky committed suicide in July 1985 after the E.S.M. Government Securities
fraud scandal broke.  The collapse of E.S.M. wrecked the Home State Savings
of Arky's father-in-law, Warner, and led to Warner's conviction for fraud.
....[Arky] was praised by his former boss at the SEC, where Arky worked
after getting out of law school.  "He was one of my real success stories,"
Stanley Sporkin, then general counsel to the CIA, told the Miami Herald.
[Sporkin was William Casey's protege.]

...In 1983, just days before Duque's empire started collapsing, Jeb Bush
accompanied Duque on one of his private planes to the inauguration of the
President of Costa Rica.  At the time, Jeb and his partner, Armando Codina,
were building a 30-story office building in downtown Miami that was to be
the new headquarters of Duque's General Coffee Corporation.

[Then Brewton moves on to a discussion of Marvin Warner's involvement in
General Homes, a corporation which had shifted from Phoenix to Houston,
engaging in construction of residential homes.  Warner's American Savings &
Loan bought 43% of General Homes in Jan. 1983.  This were where my own
personal research started.]

CTRL is a discussion and informational exchange list. Proselyzting propagandic
screeds are not allowed. Substance—not soapboxing!  These are sordid matters
and 'conspiracy theory', with its many half-truths, misdirections and outright
frauds is used politically  by different groups with major and minor effects
spread throughout the spectrum of time and thought. That being said, CTRL
gives no endorsement to the validity of posts, and always suggests to readers;
be wary of what you read. CTRL gives no credeence to Holocaust denial and
nazi's need not apply.

Let us please be civil and as always, Caveat Lector.
