It's happening...

Elected leaders and department heads in East Grand Forks, Minnesota are now accepting the public’s input on the burgeoning scandal surrounding allegations the local police and city attorney did not report to the FBI, their direct knowledge of child pornography that was created of a five year-old girl from Florida named HaLeigh Cummings.

Court records filed in Polk County, Minnesota show EGF City Attorney Ronald Galstad committed perjury to hide his knowledge that rape porn had been made of a missing child by a group that was working with Florida DCF to steal babies and the sell them. The evidence against Galstad includes a statement from Andrew Evan, superintendent, Minnesota BCA, that flatly negates Galstad's claims to be working with the Minnesota crime lab in a case being brought against local journalist ad FBI witness Timothy Holmseth.

In August of 2018 EGF City Administrator David Murphy reacted to allegations made by Holmseth during an interview with the Bismarck Tribune. “Mr. Holmseth, in my opinion, wastes a lot of the city’s time and energy in sending in Freedom of Information requests and calls,” Murphy said, adding Holmseth uses a lot of the city’s records to support “baseless accusations” against city officials and police.

“Quite frankly, I find it disgusting because these are hard-working state officers,” Murphy said. “To have someone baselessly accusing them of being child sex traffickers is sick.”

That same month, EGF City Attorney Ronald Galstad requested the court order Holmseth be psychologcally examined because Galstad questioned Holmseth's mental competancy. In September, 2018 Dr. Charles Chmiekewsi, Ph.D., L.P. reported to the court there was absolutely nothing wrong with Holmseth whatsoever.

And now it seeks things have changed.

Write Into Action is pleased to learn of the City’s newly found interest and Timothy Holmseth is providing the public with useful contact information and tips.

Q: Why is the City of East Grand Forks and its taxpayers funding prosecutions against Timothy Charles Holmseth, an FBI witness and journalist, that are brought to enforce a domestic violence protection order issued in BROWARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – when in fact – Timothy Holmseth has never been to Florida –nor has he had any relationships in Florida – and has never been charged with a crime in Florida?

Q: Isn’t the City of East Grand Forks concerned it is violating the Constitutional rights of Timothy Holmseth (and by extension all Americans) by enforcing an order from BROWARD COUNTY, FLORIDA that ordered him to turn over all his firearms and weapons permits to BROWARD COUNTY? And – ordered Timothy shall retroactively remove legally obtained and legally published content from the Web and never again write certain names and things again?

GENERAL SCRIPT: Timothy Charles Holmseth submitted audio recordings to the Polk County Court in Minnesota that demonstrated child pornography of a missing child named HaLeigh Cummings had been created and distributed. Those audio recordings were entered into the Polk County court file and described by Honorable Tamara Yon as “significant evidence” when she GRANTED Holmseth’s motion. Those public record court files were contained in a folder Timothy Holmseth allegedly published on the Web in February of 2018. The police in East Grand Forks arrested Timothy Holmseth based upon his allegedly publishing those records which violates the BROWARD COUNTY, FLORIDA court order – those files are held in evidence against Timothy.

Q: Has the City of East Grand Forks acted upon the evidence of child pornography of HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings that it now has in its possession?

Q: Why is the City of East Grand Forks seeking to imprison a publisher while concealing evidence of child rape pornography?
