CrossHarbor Capital Partners wins the bid for Spanish Peaks Holdings II by disallowing Spanish Peaks Dynasty Partners credits that had already been promised by

Source confirmed, that CrossHarbor Capital Partners was assured by the court ahead of time that the were going to lower the Spanish Peaks Dynasty Partners
bid by disallowing credits that had previously agreed to by the court. This is just another ruling last minute ruling that questions the relationship between Samuel
Byrne and Judge Ralph B. Kirscher. Samuel Byrne and CrossHarbor Capital Partners will be once again doing a capital call from the State of California pension
funds to cover their latest purchase.
I wonder if the State of California pension funds CalSTRS and CalPERS (who are both part owners of the (Yellowstone Club) would have approved this kind of
influence-peddling? Why are CalSTRS and CalPERS involved in ownership of invitation only private ski resorts that are losing tens of millions a year and controlled

2013.05.16 -- BLIXSETH AND THE IRS
Washington, DC - Someone should talk to Tim Blixseth, founder of The Yellowstone Club. Tim Blixseth has appealed the legitimacy of the Yellowstone Club
bankruptcy and had been winning the appeals. If Tim Blixseth ultimately won those appeals, and the Yellowstone bankruptcy was reversed, Ronald W. Burkle,
Our sources have confirmed, Ronald W. Burkle had his friend Lanny Breuer then with the DOJ, to have the IRS begin one of the most brutal and costly attacks by
the IRS against any American. This is the same Lanny Breuer, that Ronald W. Burkle called in 2012 to have the DOJ criminal investigations into Edra Blixseth
terminated. Edra Blixseth received DOJ target letters stating "you are a “target” of a federal investigation...the government thinks they have “substantial
evidence” linking you to crime(s)..."

by filing an "involuntary bankruptcy" against him in Nevada. Sources confirm, Ronald W. Burkle, Samuel T. Byrne and Marc S. Kirschner convinced the State of
California to a join an "involuntary bankruptcy" with the states of Montana and Idaho against Tim Blixseth. This well crafted scheme was designed to end all of
the Yellowstone Club litigation and to ensure that the State of California's $100 million investment into CrossHarbor Capital Partners (owners of the Yellowstone
Club) and their $850 million investment into Ronald W. Burkles's Yucaipa Companies were secure.
CrossHarbor Capital's 2011 and 2012 financial document shows that at the same time the State of California was bringing an "involuntary bankruptcy" against
Tim Blixseth, CrossHarbor Capital Partners was executing another capital-call from the State of California for $23.2 million. During this same time period Ronald
W. Burkle's Yucaipa Companies invested over $53mil into The Yellowstone Club.
Meanwhile, Marc S. Kirschner misused his position on the Board of Directors of Spectrum Brands (stock: SPB) to influence the State of California's decision to join
Shortly after contacting Marc S. Kirschner and his attorneys regarding these and other matters reported on the www.yellowstoneclub.net website, Marc S.
Kirschner resigned as the trustee for The Yellowstone Club Liquidating Trust (YCLT). Mark S. Kirschner had also recently resigned from Spectrum Brands. The Vice

2013.03.22 -- SAMUEL T. BYRNE AND YELLOWSTONE CLUB FINANCIALS
THE FINANCIALS: Sources confirm, Samuel T. Byrne and Yellowstone Club are providing financials documents to several financial institutions privately, on loan

2012 (34 units) $100 million which totals $323 million. The actual numbers from Yellowstone Club's audited financial statements for real estate sales for the
same time period are: 2010 - $8.85 million, 2011 - $5.7 million, and 2012 - $19.2 million (6 months) which totals $33.8 million. Samuel T. Byrne and
Yellowstone Club are providing financial data to financial institutions that is inflated by 956%. Why would Samuel T. Byrne and Yellowstone Club KNOWINGLY be

The $52.1 million in losses reported in the June 30, 2012 YC Holdings, LLC (Yellowstone Club) Quarterly Financial Statements does not appear to include the

doesn't appear to be any corresponding journal entry on their financial statements reflecting this $14.9 million. It is not likely this uncollectable receivable of $14.9

agreed to pay $500,000 to settle a bribery corruption probe launched by the New York attorney general into him. These investigations would have prevented
Darius Anderson from being involved in the Station Casino transactions with Graton Rancheria Casino. In 2013, Station Casino secured a $2bil leveraged loan
deal financed by Credit Suisse. Dennis Holahan, Graton Rancheria attorney, who secured the Credit Suisse loan, continues to work for the Graton Rancheria while
"money laundering" allegations are investigated.
2013.03.01 -- MIKE MELDMAN & DISCOVERY LAND COMPANY
Yellowstone Club has reimbursed Shared Staffing Services, LLC and other affiliates of Discovery Manager ("Shared Services"), for certain costs incurred on behalf of Yellowstone Club. The amounts for 2010 and 2011 totaled $664,770 and $859,730 respectively. Discovery is "funneling" money to Edra Blixseth and her "shell" company FF&E Liquidatories in an ongoing "money laundering" enterprise.
"The Company has utilized the services of Discovery Home Services, LLC ("DHS'"), an affiliate of Discovery Manager, in the procurement of furniture and fixtures in relationship to the remodel and upgrade of the Warren Miller Lodge and other locations throughout YC, as well as coordination of the sale of certain assets. For the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010. The amounts paid to DHS totaled $275,450 and $360,528, respectively."
Sources confirm, these ongoing transactions are part of a "money laundering" enterprise designed by Mike Meldman (CEO Discovery Home Services), Edra Blixseth, Dennis Holahan, and Samuel Byrne. This obvious "money laundering" enterprise has been ignored by the Montana Bankruptcy court, and was used to compensate Edra Blixseth for her ongoing testimony against her ex-husband Tim Blixseth and cooperation in the Yellowstone Club bankruptcy. This plan relied in part on a "buy-back" program created by Samuel T. Byrne and Bob Brown of Red Baron Antiques to "funnel" cash to Edra Blixseth and her family while recycling the same assets.
Bob Brown of Red Baron Antiques continues to dodge subpoena for his deposition, and document discovery in Edra Blixseth's bankruptcy. Edra Blixseth is still on the run and continues to hide from a 3-year old bench warrant for her arrest with the help of Dennis Holahan and others. Dennis Holahan continues to work for Graton Rancheria Casino and Hotel while allegations of "money laundering " against him are investigated.
2013.02.27 -- MONTANA BOARD OF INVESTMENTS

Ronald W. Burkle, CEO Yucaipa Companies and James E. Manley, CEO of Atlantic-Pacific Capital were major contributors to ex-Montana governor Brian D. Schweitzer 2008 reelection campaign.
Sources confirm, Samuel T. Byrne and his attorneys have had Network Solutions flag www.yellowstoneclub.net as a spam site. Samuel T. Byrne is trying to take control of the press and limit our 1st amendment rights. Samuel Byrrne isn't it enough to control the Board of Investments-State of Montana, Affiliated Managers Group, Spectrum Brands, CrossHarbor Capital, Yellowstone Club, Edra Blixseth, and the Montana bankruptcy court? Sam do you really believe you can control the flow of information over internet?
2013.02.28 -- MONTANA BOARD OF INVESTMENT
Sources confirm, Montana Board of Investments, under the direction of Governor Brian D. Schweitzer, invests $75mil into Credit Suisse and $70mil into TimesSquare Capital. Affiliated Managers Group (stock: AMG) purchased TimesSquare Capital in 2004. Samuel T. Byrne is on the Board of Directors of Affiliated Managers Group. Affiliated Managers Group has invested into CrossHarbor Capital, which owns the Yellowstone Club.
Sources confirm, former Governor Brian D. Schweitzer, while he controlled the Board of Investment for the State of Montana, invested $20mil of the Montana Public Pension Fund's into Oak Hill Capital. Oak Hill Capital's senior investment advisor is David Jones, a Yellowstone Club member and ex-CEO of Spectrum Brands. Marc S. Kirschner is the trustee of the Yellowstone Club Liquidating Trust, and is on the board of directors of Spectrum Brands. This is another glaring example of Marc S. Kirschner's conflicts of interest in the Yellowstone Club bankruptcy, and raises questions as to why Governor Brian D. Schweitzer would invest such a large amount of money into a under performing investment fund, and why Judge Ralph S. Kirscher would ever approve the appointment of Marc S. Kirschner to the Yellowstone Club bankruptcy in the first place.

reappointment was 11/18/13 at midnight. Tim Blixseth and his attorneys have for many years accused Judge Ralph Kirscher of improprieties and wrongdoing.
Apparently the 9th circuit court of appeals likely must have agreed with him, in their failure to reappoint Judge Ralph Kirscher before his term expired. The following is
the law that covers appointment of bankruptcy judges;
Each bankruptcy judge to be appointed for a judicial district, as provided in paragraph (2), shall be appointed by the court of appeals of the United States for the circuit
in which such district is located. Such appointments shall be made after considering the recommendations of the Judicial Conference submitted pursuant to subsection
(b). Each bankruptcy judge shall be appointed for a term of fourteen years, subject to the provisions of subsection (e). However, upon the expiration of the term, a
bankruptcy judge may, with the approval of the judicial council of the circuit, continue to perform the duties of the office until the earlier of the date which is 180 days
after the expiration of the term or the date of the appointment of a successor. Bankruptcy judges shall serve as judicial officers of the United States district court
established under Article III of the Constitution.
Counsel of the 9th circuit has extended Judge Ralph Kirscher's term 180 days." When Dave Madden was asked whether Judge Kirscher's term had simply expired
