I’ve noticed that a few bloggers have taken to sending ‘I am Dave Walker’ e-mails to J Mark Brewer at his office e-mail address. I’m not sure quite how wise a move that is on its own, although his rather sanctimonious comments in reply are quite amusing.
That said, I’ve taken the liberty of send Brewer an e-mail of my own, as there are a few questions I’d like him to answer…
Dear Mr Brewer,
Having reviewed the documents filed with the US Bankruptcy Court in relation to the chapter 7 application by ‘SSG LLC’?
1. It has been suggested that St Stephen the Great LLC, the company name used in the chapter 11/7 application does not exist as a legal entity. Is this true and, if so, why was the application filed in this name, which was also used in the redundancy notices issues to employees of SPCK?
2. It has also been suggested that the actual legal entity to which the application relates is St Stephen the Great Ltd/St Stephen the Great Charitable Trust, a UK registered company/charity. Is this the case and, if so, can you explain why you are seeking to liquidate a UK registered entity in a US bankruptcy court?
3. The schedule of creditors indicates that the largest creditor of ‘SSG LLC’ is the Orthodox Church Mission Fund of Houston and that, in addition to payments of around $325,000 to this organisation from the funds of ‘SSG LLC’ since September 07 ( including $75,000 or so just prior to announcing that it would go into chapter 11 bankruptcy protection) there is still an outstanding balance of $494,000. How is it that a charity running a chain of Christian book shops in the United Kingdom can come to owe a US-based private grant making foundation over $800,000?
4. Assuming that the ‘SSG LLC’ named in these papers is the UK registered charity, were the Charity Commission notified that it has incurred debts of this size and have they been notified that you are seeking to liquidate the charity in the United States?
5. The schedule of payments made in the 90 days prior to the bankruptcy application shows payments of around $110,000 to your law firm, with a further outstanding balance of $56,000 to be paid. Given that you are a trustee of the charity, did you obtain the assent of the Charity Commission as a trustee of the charity before contracting out legal work to your own law firm or confirm with them that this would not be considered an unlawful trustee benefit?
6. I note that responsibility for those SPCK stores that remain open in the UK has transferred to a company called ENC Shop Management but for two shops in Durham and Chichester Cathedral which operate as separate entities. In all cases, however, you remain a director of these companies having also been a director/trustee of SSG/SSGCT. Were any of the assets of SSG/SSGCT transferred to these companies and, if so, when did the transfer take place and what authorisation, if any, did you obtain from the Charity Commission for such a transfer?
7. Given that that you issued a ‘cease and desist’ notice to cartoonist Dave Walker on the same day that Randy Walker filed a motion to dismiss this application, one which notes that it contained a considerable number of serious discrepancies, is it not reasonable to infer that that the notice sent to Mr Walker was prompted by a desire on your part to prevent him from commenting on and publicising the content of the motion to dismiss?
If I get a response from him, you’ll read it here first…

Form 990 of the IRS filing for the Orthodox Church Mission Fund shows that the sole trustee of this trust, is…. J Mark Brewer. Copy can be made available on request.
Sounds good to me. But I bet you won’t get an answer.
I got the 990 for 2006 (filed in 2007) for OCMF from Guidestar.
The sole grant made by the organization that year was to a person named Panagiotis Kousparis residing in Greece for $20,000. The purpose of the grant was “Christian Mission.”
The sole contributor to the OCMF in 2006 was an entity called “Paris Oil & Gas Corporation” of Katy, Texas. According to manta.com, the contact for that company is Dimitrios Kousparis.
According to this page: http://www.theconference.org/pages/distri.htm
A Mr. Panagiotis Kousparis residing at the same address as the person in the Form 990 is a distributor of some sort of skateboard products in Greece.
Given your letter and other peoples letters etc I thought some might find this of interest:
‘ There are many ways to get involved in the fight for freedom. …
I would like to…
Make a financial contribution
Sign a fundraising letter
Write letters to the editor
E-mail messages to editors and opinion leaders’
there really are some other excellent quotes from these pages:
I like this one from the old Brewer&Pritchard site:
‘Like other business people, lawyers exist in a competitive world. They must be willing to withstand the scrutiny of those whom they serve and those whom they seek to serve.’ http://web.archive.org/web/20001204153800/www.bplaw.com/
There is also this shining gem as well:
‘But still, almost nothing in “the news.” Thank goodness that we have this one, last bastion of free speech– the Internet. The internet, in particular, is the only truly free “press” we still have.’
a quote from Mark Brewers own site from his 2000 campaigning.
SAMANTHA LOWRY ABLE TO FOOL AND MANIPULATE TONY BLAIR, PARLIAMENT, FBI TO GET A FRAUD OF THIRTY FIVE MILLION DOLLARS AND SEVEN MILLION DOLLAR WORTH OF ARTWORKS
So what truly happened in the case of Samantha Lowry?
(Type either name in search engines)
Evidence now shows the Lowry Family had planned this since at least January 2007, probably since April of 2006.
As you know, Samantha Lowry did not want her own son, reason why Sebastian carries both of my last names ONLY, Sebastian John Raul Pavon Cuellar.
Well Samantha Lowry had met a Police detective Andrew Westbrook in on or around October 2006, they became
