In most ways – the charade is over.
District Judge Honorable Tamara Yon must now rule on the insanity created by out-of-control public officials, lawlessness, and corruption in the Ninth Minnesota Judicial District.
HOLMSETH VS. CALLAHAN, a ‘Family Court’ case under the ‘Custody’ classification, is actually a public corruption case, that morphed into a bona fide psychological child abuse case, that became an institutional kidnapping issue, after the public officials got caught in the act by an investigative journalist. .
It happened like this.
In 2009, law enforcement’s suspects in the kidnapping of HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings made contact with Rhonda Callahan, Grand Forks.
Callahan was contacted because she has a child-in-common with Timothy Charles Holmseth, investigative author/journalist, East Grand Forks. In 2009, Holmseth was conducting interviews regarding the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping and was told what really happened.
Holmseth also learned extremely volatile information about the death of Caylee Anthony.
The people Holmseth was interviewing contacted Callahan because she had legal standing to file court motions against Holmseth. The group had a previously existing formula that involved using ‘Custody’ cases in ‘Family Court’ to pursue their enemies by proxy.
There was good reason to fear what Holmseth learned. In fact, the information Holmseth aquired was so valuable and sensitive the Jacksonville Florida FBI asked the Minneapolis FBI to interview Holmseth and obtain recordings of his interviews.
Holmseth was told about a human trafficking operation that steals children and sells babies through the United States Embassy. He also learned information about the now imprisoned Florida lawyer and Ponzi schemer Scott Rothstein.
All of Holmseth interviews were recorded, preserved in a safe and remote locations, and can be proven by pressing ‘play’.
Callahan agreed to help the out-of-state individuals trash Holmseth’s name by filing child protection complaints against him. She filed five CPS complaints in only four months.
Between 2009 and 2014 Callahan, a licensed social worker, filed countless CPS complaints and abuse allegations against Holmseth (and his young daughter) – each time she filed something the out-of-state criminals would publish the new ‘allegations’ on the Web.
In 2011, the Honorable Donna Dixon, Roseau Family Court appointed Matthew Petrovich as guardian ad litem for the minor child.
Petrovich appeared compromised from the moment he was appointed and immediately began to pursue Holmseth.
Holmseth ultimately submitted to three psychological / parental capacity tests (at the prompting of Callahan and/or Petrovich) and passed every single one. He was completely cleared by CPS of every single abuse claim made against him.
In 2014, facts and circumstances began to emerge regarding Callahan. Grand Forks CPS became involved with her and she remains the subject of an active assessment regarding unknown conduct/activities.
But – what’s more disturbing is that the facts and circumstances CPS are looking into were all happening while Petrovich was the GAL assigned to the child.
Every single indication is Petrovich knew exactly what was going on and tried to help Callahan cover it up.
Holmseth has been arrested and imprisoned; he’s had his home-office raided by armed police; he’s had his computer’s hard-drive illegally searched and detsroyed; he’s been blackmailed and extorted; he’s been harrased and received death threats.
They couldn’t make anything stick.
Petrovich is now attempting to obtain a court order, which would (un-constitutionally) gain permanent legal access to Holmseth’s publishing business, via his child, and therefore allow the State to monitor and censor him.
Petrovich’s focus on Holmseth’s publishing business was evident in 2011 when he was first appointed to the case. He followed the standard organized crime and tried to marginilize Holmseth with suggestions of mental instability, etc.
It didn’t work.
In the summer of 2012 Petrovich actually began to exhibit pathology after Holmseth began to demand documents from the East Grand Forks Police Department regarding that Department’s illegal search and subsequent destruction of his computer’s hard-drive.
Petrovich continuously emailed Holmseth and reminded him he was viewing his website. He told Holmseth he needed to get off his computer, spend time with his son, and start thinking about what is important to him.
Holmseth did not succumb to Petrovich’s harassment and thinly veiled threats and continued to demand records from the EGFPD.
Buckling under the pressure of FOI requests, EGF Police Chief Michael Hedlund finally admitted in writing the police department kept to chain of evidence during the four months they had Holmseth’s hard-drive. The Police Department also created no Report of Examination to show what they did on Holmseth’s computer, despite Polk County Sheriff Barb Erdman admitting that Investigator Michael Norland secretly searched Holmseth’s hard-drive.
Petrovich’s conduct (as well as the EGFPD and Polk County Sheriff’s Office) can be described as nothing but bad.
In 2011, shortly before Petrovich was assigned to the case, Holmseth was receiving harassing phone calls regarding the HaLeigh Cummings case.
It was in the exact same time window Holmseth received strange calls, that EGF City Attorney Ronald Galstad, the EGFPD, and Matthew Petrovich began to pursue Holmseth with vigor.
Basic criminology indicates Petrovich and Callahan’s requests to the Court for a gag-order is a desperate attempt by the guilty, to keep incriminating information from surfacing for public consumption.
On February 24, 2014, Callahan submitted an Affidavit to the court suggesting Petrovich be allowed to enter Holmseth’s home-office once a week to go through his files.
The Honorable Tamara Yon is reviewing all arguments in this case and will make a ruling in the near future.
