Questions mount for Tripp-Scott Law Firm regarding felonies committed in case connected to biofuel company seized from Scott Rothstein

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

Did Attorney Doug Reynolds, Tripp-Scott Law Firm, report to the Court that somebody falsified a Court Order and Judge’s signature?

According to Edward Boyle, a biofuel specialist connected to Parties in the case, Attorney Reynolds has known about it for several weeks – if not months.

The facts are not complicated.

Court documents were faked and disseminated to various lawyers and Parties. The fake documents appeared as an Order from the Court. The fake documents were developed to create the appearance they had been signed by a Judge. No originals of the documents appeared in the official Register of Actions with the Broward County Clerk of Court.

The illegal activity surrounds a court case involving a lawsuit filed in 2011 by John Burgun, Plantation, Florida, to recover monies lost during a business endeavor regarding a company called Alternative Biofuel Technologies, Inc. (ABT). Burgun was President of ABT.

ABT was listed among the assets seized by federal authorities from former Fort Lauderdale attorney Scott Rothstein during their RICO prosecution.

The falsification of court records is not the only instance of fraud, in a case that appears to be little more than a rolling felony. Boyle said the case also involves “tax returns that don’t match prior tax returns”.

What is not clear is whether or not the illegal activity and fraud is being brought to the attention of the Court; or being withheld for some reason. Bringing attention to fabricated and fraudulently produced court documents could only benefit Attorney Reynolds and bis client.

The case was filed in 2011 and a ruling in John Burgun’s favor long since entered. The case continues as an attempt to collect.

The oddity is there is no real indication Attorney Reynolds is reporting the growing laundry list of felonies to the Court, Florida BAR Association, IRS, FBI, or SEC.

There is no apparent reason why Attorney Reynolds would keep the activity from the eyes of the Court.

Maria Burgun, wife of John Burgun, met with the FBI in 2012 and told them she believes her money was used to finance the kidnapping of HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings.

Alternative Biofuel Technologies, Inc. (ABT) was an investment of convicted Fort Lauderdale attorney Scott Rothstein.

In June, 2011, John Burgun, the Company’s president, filed a lawsuit regarding monies owed him regarding the original formation of ABT. Burgun subsequently prevailed and was awarded a hefty judgment in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, which Burgun is presently attempting to collect.

Edward Boyle, biofuels specialist and brother-in-law of John Burgun, says forged documents were recently discovered by attorneys in the case.

The fake documents, which included a Judge’s signature, were received by various law firms, but did not appear in official Register of Actions with the Broward County Clerk of Court, Boyle said.

“There’s a lot of fraud going on down here,” Boysle said, noting the developement is refreshing. “[Attorney] Doug Reynolds said this time they got them,” he said.

Boyle said the faked documents were sent out to Parties on the peripheral of the case to mislead attorneys into believing rulings had been made. Boyle said one of the company’s that received fake documents was Florida Power and Lights.

According to William Staubs, private investigator, Fort Lauderdale, said ABT was supposed to receive a $231 Million dollar contract from the government per Scott Rothstein’s relationship with then Florida Governor Charlie Crist.

The biofuel company was created the very day Casey Anthony was indicted for murder.

John Burgun’s wife, Maria Burgun, met with the Southern District FBI and told the Agent she believes her money was used to finance the kidnapping of HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings.

Fraud, fakes, felons, fuel and missing little girls

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

On February 11, 2014 Timothy Charles Holmseth (self-reporting herein), investigative journalist, sent a letter to United States Attorney Wifredo Ferrer.

“During journalistic interviews, I was told Florida Governor Charlie Crist was partnering with Scott Rothstein and several others in a $231 Million deal involving a government biofuels contract,” Holmseth said in his letter to the U.S. Attorney.

Scott Rothstein and Florida Gov. Crist

“[William Eugene Staubs] told me it involved the “biggest billy bad-ass attorney” in Florida. He said the attorney’s name was “Rothstein””, Holmseth said.

Holmseth’s two page letter to Attorney Wifredo contains information that is backed up by recorded journalistic interviews – many of which were turned over to the Minneapolis FBI when Holmseth was interviewed in 2010.

Holmseth published a column on November 4, 2012 entitled “Rothstein”. “I recalled Staubs telling me something about Governor Charlie Crist, the most powerful lawyer in Florida, a government contract, and $231 Million,” he said.

The facts have not changed.

William Staubs, Case Closed Inc., Fort Lauderdale, is a licensed private investigator in the state of Florida. He had been featured in the media after interjecting himself into the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping investigation. Holmseth interviewed Staubs in 2009 about the missing child, but the conversation soon changed to biofuels.

Staubs was irate somebody he knew was attempting to utilize the legal services of Rothstein, Rosenfeldt, and Adler to assist with financial the matters of the HaLeigh Cummings kidnapping because, he said, they were trying to “pierce the corporate veil” of the biofuel company.

The biofuel company was “Alternative Biofuel Technologies Inc” (ABT).

Records of the Florida Bar Association show that after the mother of HaLeigh Cummings was reported to the Department of Agriculture for operating a money scheme, she did in fact receive legal advice and guidance from the “law firm of Rothstein, Rosenfeldt, and Adler, PA, in Broward County, Florida”.

Staubs told Holmseth that his friend had invented priceless technology that could convert waste into fuel. He said a multi-million dollar government contract was coming because of connections with (then) Florida Governor Charlie Crist.

Holmseth then received a recording of voices discussing the biofuel deal, wherein a man (believed to be Jeremiah Regan, administrator, HaLeigh Bug Center) is being assured that in addition to the five-hundred and fifty grand they had just received, there was two-hundred and thirty one million dollars they have been promised.

Staubs said the $231 Million was an inside deal with Charlie Crist.

At one point Staubs laughingly admitted the biofuel technology and business was all a hoax. Using an analogy, he described one man turning on a machine, while another man hidden around corner with a gas can, dumped fuel into a container. He said it was all “bull-shit”.

Staubs told Holmseth the money to fund the daily activities of the HaLeigh Cummings endeavor was coming from a man named John Burgun, Plantation, Florida.

Articles of Incorporation show ABT was registered on October 14, 2008. The Registered Agent was Richard P. Greene (convicted felon) and the Director was another man (convicted felon).

On January 29, 2009 John Burgun replaced the first Director.

John Burgun and his wife, Maria Burgun, by all known accounts, are respected business owners in Broward County. Edward Boyle, brother-in-law, John Burgun, said John Burgun became the Director of ABT because they did not want a convicted felon as the face-man during the roll out.

Most perplexing is the involvement of “ABT” in two separate missing person cases.

ABT was formed the same day Casey Anthony was indicted for murder (October 14, 2008). Less than two weeks after John Burgun became Director of ABT; HaLeigh Cummings disappeared and Burgun’s money was used to finance the endeavor.

In 2009, Holmseth was being copied on internal emails being generated by the legal team working for Crystal Sheffield, mother, HaLeigh Cummings. Also being copied on the emails was Rothstein, Rosenfeldt, and Adler.

After Holmseth published the truth about ongoing events, he received an angry email advising him to contact Pedro E. Dijols, Rothstein, Rosenfeldt, and Adler with his media inquiries. Holmseth contacted Dijols, and Dijols confirmed.

Official court documents from the United States Courts show ABT was listed amongst the forfeitures after Scott Rothstein was charged with violating RICO: (BI17) Scott W. Rothstein’s equity interest, and licensing rights, in Alternative Biofuel Technologies, Inc.

In 2012 Holmseth told Special Agent Dave Roberts, FBI, what he knew about Rothstein, Rosenfeldt, and Adler’s involvement in ABT.

HaLeigh Cummings book author seriously threatened within hours of starting research on black market baby sales in Gainesville

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

Investigative journalist (Timothy Charles Holmseth – self reporting) visited the website of the Gainesville Sun on Saturday to read a story entitled “Florida closed adoption laws frustrate some”.

Within hours he was receiving threats.

The story about adoption laws, which was published by the Gainesville Sun in 2010 focuses on a place called Hampton Hall in Gainesville, Florida, that in the 1960’s, was headquarters for a black market baby selling operation run by a man named Col. Robert Ryan.

The Hampton Hall story contained interviews with a woman named Lisa Floyd Morash who, as an infant, was sold on the black market out of Hampton Hall.

Holmseth searched Facebook and found a Web page for a woman named Lisa Kay Floyd. He recognized her as the same person interviewed in the news clips on You Tube regarding Hampton Hall and the black market baby sales. He decided to send Floyd a ‘friend request’ and clicked the ‘send’ button.

Floyd accepted the friend request and Holmseth’s photo appeared on her friend’s page.

Holmseth almost immediately began to receive threats from a group of people. One member of the group sending messages to Holmseth was a man named Levi Page. “Do not friend request Yancy Faith on FB again, she doesn’t’ associate with Web weirdoes,” he said.

However – Holmseth did not send a friend request to anybody named “Yancy Faith,” which is a fake name assigned to an anonymous Twitter account. Holmseth simply sent a friend request to a very real person named Lisa Kay Floyd.

Page then said to Holmseth, “Sick of [yo]u trying to fuck with my friends. Keep it up and I’ll make sure you’re involuntarily committed in a mental institution”.

Another member, piggy-backing on Pages threats, told Holmseth he was going to be put in jail, and accused him of harassing the person’s friends.

Neither Page nor any of the others messaging Holmseth, appear as a friend on the Facebook account of Lisa Kay Floyd.

Lisa Kay Floyd was sold on the black market as an infant from Hampton Hall in Gainesville, Florida.

Lisa Kay Floyd was sold on the black market as an infant from Hampton Hall in Gainesville, Florida.

The emerging picture is a cynical one.

Evidence shows that Page and his cohorts are desperately trying to prevent Holmseth from talking to Floyd. The methods of intimidation employed involve Twitter as the communication medium, along with implied threats of false police reports and court actions that will cause Holmseth to be detained.

Pages activities appear to be no more than a simple parlor trick – described here:

Somebody using a Twitter account under the name “Yancy Faith” made the statement “I strongly recommend you and all your weirdo friends avoid following this accounts @tholmseth. I do have a very good attorney.”

The person using the name “Yancy Faith” was pretending to be Lisa Kay Floyd.

The parlor trick is simple – Page used his own Twitter account to write a message wherein he casually referred to Lisa Kay Floyd as “Yancy Faith” (thus substituting her name). He then used a fake Twitter account he created under the name “Yancy Faith” and with it – pretended to be “Lisa Kay Floyd”.

Floyd is not “Yancy Faith” – is likely Page – and the Twitter account “Yancy Faith” is being used to impersonate Lisa Kay Floyd and create the appearance she is making public statements, which she in fact is not.

Page is also stalking Harriet Sweat, a Christian missionary from the Palatka, Florida area that brings the Gospel to prisoners in jail. Page sent a message to Holmseth and Sweat. “I know exactly what the two of you are doing,” he said.

Levi Page

In 2011 Page telephoned Holmseth and wanted him to appear on his Web radio program where he discussed ‘missing children’ ad nauseum. When Holmseth politely told Page he did not wish to appear on Page’s program, the man began to shout vulgarities and threats.

Page warned Holmseth he better stop reporting that HaLeigh Cummings is alive.

How the Minnesota Guardian Ad Litem program used the Court to take a journalist’s child hostage

by Timothy Charles Holmseth

In a terrifying irruption of tyranny and rights violations against an investigative journalist, the State orchestrated an abduction of the journalist’s child using the Courts.

It has been exposed.

On October 9, 2013 Matthew Petrovich, guardian ad litem, convinced a District Judge that a child he was assigned to represent was in danger and should only visit his father, Timothy Charles Holmseth, under supervision.

What may have appeared on the surface to be an act of child protection has now been exposed as nothing short of institutional kidnapping.

Holmseth had been warned and threatened for years and all of his pleas for help from his local law enforcement were ignored.

Holmseth refused to comply with demands from strangers using voice changers to anonymously warn him to be quiet about the missing person case of HaLeigh Ann-Marie Cummings – a journalism project he had worked on. .

One anonymous caller said, “…let me tell you something, the CPS is going to be all over you – the State’s attorneys are – all sorts of people – you better stop it now you here…” LISTEN [3:20 marker]

Holmseth then received cryptic warnings from Matthew Petrovich, a Minnesota guardian ad litem, to stay off his computer and start thinking about what is important to him.

The East Grand Fork Police Department, under the guidance of a State prosecutor named Ronald Galstad, seized Holmseth’s hard drive; secretly searched it without a warrant; and returned it inoperable in an effort to destroy evidence.

In 2013 the brood of corrupt officials went nuclear on Holmseth after he acquired evidence Galstad and the police searched his hard-drive without a warrant, in addition to obtaining scorching evidence from an official at the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) that Galstad had been telling lies to the Judge about a (non-existent) relationship he claimed he had with the BCA regarding Holmseth.

The assertions made in October, 2013 by Petrovich and the child’s mother, Rhonda Callahan, ultimately turned out to be diametrically opposed to reality, after a renowned psychologist evaluated Holmseth and examined the allegations against him.

There is no comparison between the official accusations and the official findings.

Documents and testimony against Holmseth by Petrovich and Callahan included psychological labels such as “paranoid” “delusional” “psychotic” and “obsessed”.

But the psychologist found nothing.

On October 9, 2013 at the Polk County Justice Center in Crookston, Minnesota, a hearing was held. The Judge found that although no direct evidence existed; credible evidence was supplied by Petrovich and the child’s mother, Rhonda Callahan, to establish that sufficient danger to the child existed.

The Judge was acting in accordance with Minnesota State Statute 518.175 that reads:

If the court finds, after a hearing, that parenting time with a parent is likely to endanger the child’s physical or emotional health or impair the child’s emotional development, the court shall restrict parenting time with that parent as to time, place, duration, or supervision and may deny parenting time entirely, as the circumstances warrant. The court shall consider the age of the child and the child’s relationship with the parent prior to the commencement of the proceeding.

The Court ordered Holmseth’s time with his son be limited to one hour per week at a safety center. He was further ordered to submit to a psychological evaluation/parental capacity assessment to be performed by a psychologist.

Once a Court Order such as this is issued, there is no guarantee the parent will ever see their child again for more than one hour a week. It is an act of terrorism by the State against a citizen and a violation of several federal statutes to falsely testify in this fashion to achieve this result.

The effective zeal exhibited by Holmseth’s accusers is realized through the fact that the Judge was convinced a danger existed, despite the fact Holmseth had already submitted to psychological/parental capacity examinations in 2008 and 2012; he passed both.

On December 23, 2013 Holmseth met with Dr. Madaline Barnes PhD, Sanford Medical Center, Thief River Falls, Minnesota. On January 13, 2013 Dr. Barnes submitted her findings to the Court.

The entire conceptual preface of ‘sufficient danger’ presented to Dr. Barnes through the Court’s Order was completely non-existent.

In her four page report, Dr. Barnes had virtually nothing negative to say about Holmseth.

“Mr. Holmseth was very cooperative during the interview, and very honest and open about his interactions with his son and his activities. He was very adamant about denying having given his son any additional information about adult issues that are inappropriate for a [young child], insisted his ex-wife was either distorting or fabricating her accusations,” Barnes said.

“The records of his supervised visits reflect that he continues to have the same positive relationship with his son that I observed previously, and showed no inappropriate interactions [in the log generated by the facilitator] during those visits,” she said.

Barnes stated there were neither safety concerns nor mental health issues and recommended parenting-time is re-instated.
