On January 23, 2019, CNet.com headlined a Claire Reilly article declaring John McAfee has recruited ‘hundreds’ of masked look-alikes for his 2020 presidential bid: Why? Because he’s on a boat on the run from the IRS.
It is not the first time that John McAfee has been on the run. Back in 2012, McAfee fled Belize when he became a person of interest regarding the murder of his neighbor. This time McAfee is not fleeing TO the United States; he is fleeing from the long reach of the Department of Justice.
Robert David Steele: The truth at any cost lowers all other costs
Ho hum, another rich, spoiled, hedonist running from the IRS. Who cares?
Answer: Robert David Steele, the former CIA spy.
So on June 10, 2019, John McAfee displayed on Twitter this screenshot of a message from Robert David Steele to McAfee’s internet handle Johnny Bgood.
As we have noted before, Robert David Steele is under strict IRS guidelines that he cannot use his non-profit corporation Earth Intelligence Network to influence the outcome of Presidential elections. So Steele cautiously framed his message as an EDUCATIONAL AND CHARITABLE recommendation when he advised Presidential hopeful McAfee to, “Burn his ass, take photos, I will post them…”
Steele’s relationship with McAfee involves a shared vision of a World Brain, which was advertised as a project back in 2017 during the #UNRIG election reform campaign.
Yahoo Finance’s Samantha Chang stated in her June 9, 2019 article, Bitcoin Bull John McAfee Warns U. S. Government: ‘I Will Bury You’, that “In a dizzying weekend Twitter rant, McAfee claimed that the Department of Justice is compiling a bogus case against him for money-laundering, racketeering, and murder.” This situation has lead McAfee to warn, “I’ve collected files on corruption in governments. For the first time, I’m naming names and specifics. I’ll begin with a corrupt CIA agent and two Bahamian officials…If I’m arrested or disappear, 31+ terabytes of incriminating data will be released to the press.”
The Question which we breathlessly await an Answer for is…
Will John McAfee provide proper authentication of his evidence, or will the public be subjected to another dreary round of dubious accusations against government officials, which are then spread over the internet by YouTube wannabe broadcast journalists?
McAfee’s friend, Robert David Steele, has no problem relying on the “U. S. government is corrupt to the bone” federal court system, when it serves his own interests. However, John McAfee’s present troubles may require an Intergalactic Get Out of Jail Free Card, allowing him to escape on a NASA rocket to a secret colony that Steele claims exists on planet Mars.
In this twilight zone scenario, perhaps Dr. Strangelaw’s Witness Protection Program can be of assistance. All McAfee needs to do is to declare that he is being persecuted by the Deep State because of his knowledge of child sex trafficking.
Witness Protection appears to be one of the many interests of non-attorney Robert David Steele, who in the photo below, is shown in his black robe as Chief Counsel for that sovereign citizen-styled LARP Court, called the International Tribunal for Natural Justice (ITNJ).
The ITNJ is a pretend court which has NO AUTHORITY on earth to prosecute civil or criminal complaints; yet it claims to provide witness protection to persons whose testimony lacks the proper evidence to support their defamatory accusations of pedophilia and child sex trafficking.
Such witness testimonies given to ITNJ are not scrutinized using the standard rules of evidence in regard to hearsay, authentication of documentation, cross-examination of witnesses, etc. which our American court system employs to ensure a just verdict.
A cursory look at one of ITNJ’s Protected Witnesses: Timothy Charles Holmseth
Timothy Holmseth of Minnesota has a ten year history of reporting on stories involving missing children. Attorney Steven S. Biss in a federal civil complaint filed on behalf of Holmseth in 2018, explained, “In or about April 2009, when he was first contacted by Cobra Staubs-Picazio’s private investigator-Holmseth operated a website. Holmseth was known for his investigative journalism. Cobra told Holmseth that Picazio needed some independent news coverage about a missing child that had been kidnapped named HaLeigh Cummings.”
Subsequently Holmseth became involved in conducting “over one-hundred hours of interviews with witnesses, law enforcement, lawyers, social services and others” and he now claims that he “obtained highly sensitive information regarding the activities of satanic organized crime in Florida.” [see timothy holmseth biss complaint]
Because of his involvement in investigating elements of the HaLeigh Cummings story, Holmseth and others associated with that story became entangled in a lengthy exchange of defamatory accusations against each other on the internet. Those accusations created a cloud of distraction over the real story of a missing child.
It is nearly impossible for the outside observer to disentangle that whole mess, thus in this article I am going to stay within the bounds of several court cases involving Holmseth, which are listed below in this PACER case locator.
The First Minnesota lawsuit
On July 22, 2014 (case 2970) Holmseth vs the City of East Grand Forks was filed in the Minnesota District Court. Document 107, representing a Magistrate Judge’s Report and Recommendation, [timothy holmseth 3 9 2015 doc 107] provides the following background on this case:
“This 42 U. S. C. section 1983 case arises from three separate courses of events. The first course of events concerns the actions of the East Grand Forks Police Department (“EGFPD”) while investigating complaints made about Timothy Holmseth (“Plaintiff”) between 2009 and 2011 regarding postings he was publishing to the internet that ultimately resulted in a protective order being issued against Plaintiff in Florida.”
“The second course of events concerns the actions of members of the EGFPD, members of the Polk County Sheriff’s Department, and two attorneys during the 2011 and 2012 investigation and prosecution of Plaintiff for violations of the Florida protective order.”
“The third course of events concerns a staff member of the East Grand Forks Economic Development and Housing Authority (“EDHA”) being ordered to shred an address verification form required for Plaintiff to obtain security clearance to work for a company providing janitorial services to the National Weather Service (“NWS”), and complaints made about Plaintiff while so employed that ultimately resulted in his employment being terminated on July 11, 2014.”
In this 62 page document, U. S. Magistrate Judge Leo L. Brisbois on March 5, 2015 recommended that each of the Defendant’s separate Motions to Dismiss be granted, and the Plaintiff’s Motion for Injunctive Relief be denied.
Why did this lawsuit prove to be a waste of time?
One of the points explained by the Magistrate stated, “As discussed above, “[w]hile a complaint attacked by a Rule 12(b)(6) motion to dismiss does not need detailed factual allegations, a plaintiff’s obligation to provide the grounds of his entitlement to relief requires more than labels and conclusions, and a formulaic recitation of the elements of cause of action will not do.” Bell Atl. Corp v. Twombly, 550 U. S. 544, 555 (2007) (internal quotations and citations omitted). “A claim has facial plausibility when the plaintiff pleads factual content that allows the court to draw the reasonable inference that the defendant is liable for the misconduct alleged,” but in contrast, “[w]here a complaint pleads facts that are ‘merely consistent with’ a defendant’s liability, it ‘stops short of the line between possibility and plausibility of ‘entitlement to relief.'”…”
This case  was closed on July 23, 2015.
The Second Minnesota lawsuit
A year later, on July 25, 2016, Holmseth vs. City of Grand Forks, et. al. [case 2496] was filed in the Minnesota District Court. On August 25, 2016, Chief Judge United States District Court John R. Tunheim gave an Order Adopting Report and Recommendations,stating, “Based upon the Report and Recommendation of United States Magistrate Judge Leo. I. Brisbois, and after an independent review of the files, records and proceedings in the above-entitled matter, IT IS HEREBY ORDERED: (1) This action is summarily dismissed without prejudice. and (2) Plaintiff Timothy Charles Holmseth’s application to proceed in forma pauperis, [docket No. 2], is denied as moot.”
The North Dakota lawsuit
A week prior to the above Order in the Minnesota case, on August 18, 2016, Timothy Holmseth filed another lawsuit against the City of Grand Forks/Grand Forks Police Department, et. al. in the North Dakota District Court. That case was closed on October 3, 2016, after United States Magistrate Judge Alice R. Senechal filed an Order as Document 6 on September 30, 2016. [see timothy holmseth north dakota 2016 order]
In that Order, it states that “Plaintiff Timothy Charles Holmseth (Holmseth), who is proceeding pro se and in forma pauperis, filed a complaint and motion for emergency injunctive relief. (Doc. #4). Holmseth alleges the various defendants have engaged in a criminal conspiracy to destroy and conceal evidence of misconduct.”
“The complaint describes Holmseth as a ‘journalist, author, publisher, songwriter, and media specialist’…The defendants are various law enforcement agencies, a health care provider, a state university, the State of North Dakota, a state’s attorney, and local government agencies. The allegations of the complaint concern Holmseth’s attempt to obtain information about a February 2015 event, in which a person was allegedly shot by a police-officer.”
Of interest in that Order (Document 6) is the Judge’s discussion of a legal argument against Holmseth’s complaints. On page 6, it says, “There is no general constitutional right of access to government information. As described by the United States Supreme Court: There is no constitutional right to have access to particular government information, or to require openness from the bureaucracy…The public’s interest in knowing about its government is protected by the guarantee of a Free Press, but the protection is indirect. The Constitution itself is neither a Freedom of Information Act nor an Official Secrets Act.” It is then added later, “The First Amendment guarantees a right to publish information, but not necessarily a right to gain information.”
The Judge dismissed without prejudice the Plaintiff’s claims and denied his motion for injunctive relief. Finally, “The court finds that any appeal would be frivolous, could not be taken in good faith, and may not be taken in forma pauperis.”
The Sarah Westall video discussing the arrest of Holmseth for an alleged violation of Picazio’s Florida Protective Order
On February 24, 2018, Sarah Westall published a YouTube video, Timothy Holmseth Update-Serious Findings Disclosed, as a response to Holmseth’s February 17, 2018 arrest. At the .19 mark, Westall states, “…he was let out without bail and they, they didn’t prosecute him further. He had a phone call from the International Judicial Commission. He’s an official witness now on their list looking into child trafficking and sex crimes against children and an official representative called the jail on his behalf and shared with him that he is a witness for them and that helped move the case along. The judge didn’t see an issue…”.
Let me see if I can get this straight. Timothy Holmseth gets arrested, and a LARP Chief Counsel with a LARP Court that has no authority on earth to judge or prosecute criminal or civil offenses, intervenes in a law enforcement process that is officially authorized in the state of Florida.
The above screen shot of Robert David Steele’s comment under Sarah Westall’s video states, “Mr. Tim Holmseth is a registered witness per a protective order from the Judicial Commission of inquiry into Human Trafficking and Child Sex Abuse under Presiding Judge Sir John Walsh of Brannaugh.”
“The death threats against Mr. Holmseth are being taken very seriously. Polk County law enforcement is now fully briefed-they will not be fooled again, and any further attempts against Mr. Holmeth –both procedural and violent– will be elevated immediately to the federal level.”
“If it is not obvious to these criminals, their former CIA and FBI cohorts are now under sealed indictments and will be of no use to them. The White Hats helped our President harvest the NSA database and we have it all. It’s time for the criminals to think about exit strategies–emigration to Israel is certainly one option. I continue to strongly favor a Truth & Reconciliation strategy– our focus is educational, not punitive.”
Confirmation of Holmseth’s Protected Witness Status with ITNJ
A week later, on Timothy Holmseth’s website, writeinaction.com, he reports that he has been “confirmed as a witness to testify before the Judicial Commission of Inquiry into Human Trafficking and Child Sex Abuse in London in April, 2018…Holmseth was introduced to the Commission by Robert David Steele, Chief Enabling Officer of Earth Intelligence Network. Steele was recommended for the Nobel Peace Prize and is a former Operations Officer in the Clandestine Service of the CIA. Steele is the co-founder of the Marine Corps Intelligence Activity. In December, 2017, the 9th Minnesota District Court vacated prior orders against Holmseth after receiving documents and audio that revealed Holmseth had obtained information regarding child trafficking, child pornography, and fake adoptions by figures in Broward County, Florida, working with the CIA and FBI. For more information on Holmseth with the International Tribunal for Natural Justice visit (link given).
Curiously, that link goes to a page that has since been removed from the ITNJ website.
Not Another Lawsuit!!!
On February 3, 2018, two weeks BEFORE his arrest, Timothy Holmseth was declaring the following message on his other website haleighcummingsdotme.wordpress.com #PEDOGATE DEVELOPING:
High level strategists associated with U. S. Intelligence?? Subsequent to that Timothy Holmseth write-up, a federal civil lawsuit was filed on May 25, 2018, in the Virginia Eastern District Court, by Robert David Steele’s attorney Steven S. Biss, as counsel for Timothy Holmseth. [timothy holmseth biss complaint]
This case was later transferred from Virginia to the Florida Southern District Court on January 2, 2019.
But then an interesting thing happened. On January 31, 2019 United States District Judge William P. Dimitrouleas issued Document 35, Order of Dismissal for Failure to Comply with Court Orders.
The Order reads, “THIS CAUSE is before the Court upon the Court’s January 23, 2019 Order to Show Cause to Plaintiff’s Counsel for Failure to Comply with Order Requiring Status Report…The Court warned that “[a] failure to comply with this Order to Show Cause shall result in the immediate dismissal of this case.” As of the date of this Order, Plaintiff’s counsel has failed to comply with the Court’s Orders. Accordingly, it is ORDERED AND ADJUDGED as follows: 1. the above-styled action is DISMISSED for failure to comply with multiple Court Orders. 2. the Clerk is DIRECTED to CLOSE this case and DENY AS MOOT any pending motions….”.
So what happened to the federal lawsuit #PEDOGATE that Counsel of record Steven Scott Biss was developing with high level strategists associated with U. S. Intelligence?
What kind of attorney fails to represent the interests of his client by ignoring multiple Court Orders so that the case is dismissed?
Under the Comment Section of the Sarah Westall video, Steele receives blowback
There are a number of interesting conversations posted under the Sarah Westall video noted earlier in this post. Attorney Kim Picazio responded in length to misinformation presented by Steele and Westall.
In addition, Phil C. in responding to a previous comment, said “Kathleen St. Clare I wish I could but would prefer not to be the target of the next lawsuit. I can say this, There are not 17 thumbs up on my comment for no reason Steven S. Biss.”
Robert Steele then commented, suggesting, “It is good to be afraid of a federal lawsuit.” (and he gives the link to Google Gestapo, and that article can be read here.)
[Also see Tracking the Leopard Meroz article November 12, 2017, Robert David Steele & His List of Crowdstalkers & Co-Conspirators: Is Your Name On This List?]
Then LjRoxArk asked, “Robert…are you seriously threatening “phil c”?? that’s exactly why folk do NOT want you anywhere NEAR a real investigation. Go find something else to make some cash doing..write books..but stay OUT of our house..you could be renamed ->>>”forked tongue bobby”..do you see how many peeps here think poorly of you, and that you are a tool for the deep state looking to vector the narrative. we don’t want what ya got. go sell it somewhere else. You can threaten me all you want. I own nothing and never will, also quite ill..suit proof.. and how dare you threaten someone on this channel or any other legitimate truther channel for their opinions…”.
Veering Off Course
It appeared to have begun well when Timothy Holmseth first began investigating the story of the missing Florida child, Haleigh Cummings. On July 13, 2009 he submitted a 22 page Preliminary Investigative Report to the FBI, which was presented as an Exhibit of the Biss lawsuit, Holmseth vs. Picazio, et. al. [timothy holmseth biss complaint].
But as time went on, it appears that Holmseth veered off into child trafficking conspiracy theories based on speculations about the facts of the HaLeigh Cummings case, and that led to publishing unfounded accusations. It is interesting that Holmseth’s conspiracy theories also involved the murder of Jon Benet Ramsey, in much the same way that David Hawkins on Crowdsource the Truth has woven that same motif into his CSI storyboards. As an example of this similarity in approach, Abel Danger in a January 4, 2019 post on a Timothy Holmseth video, also featured a Bad Santa Boystown image similar to the type of collages created by Jason Goodman and David Hawkins on Crowdsource the Truth that were employed to defame certain individuals.
Bad Santa Boystown– Abel Danger 1/4/2019 post on Holmseth video on Pence
Timothy Holmseth vs. Kim Picazio, William Murtaugh and Karen Gaur
The Introduction to the May 25, 2018 lawsuit prepared by Steven Biss begins, “America’s darkest secret is pedophilia and child trafficking. Journalists, like Timothy Holmseth – who seek to expose the perpetrators, uncover the truth, work with the FBI and facilitate criminal prosecutions- are subject to death threats, threats to kidnap and rape family members, mutilation, tortious interference with business and employment, blackmail, extortion, vandalism, intimidation, and malicious and unrelenting ad hominem attacks. Often, as in this case, the perpetrators employ a technique called “gaslighting” – they, inter alia, defame the investigator by accusing him of heinous acts and crimes they themselves have committed.”
This is pretty wild stuff being described in a lawsuit. But what was really wild was that attorney Steven Biss effectively abandoned this case, once it was transferred from Virginia to Florida.
But Attorney Biss was not the only one who was withering on the vine. Timothy Holmseth’s professional writing skills seem to have greatly diminished as well. An example of this phenomena is the January 23, 2016, self-published $9.99 Kindle book which Timothy Holmseth is selling on Amazon.com titled, Babylonian Funeral: The Satanic Ritual Sacrifice of Caylee Anthony. It is only 83 pages long, not much of an indepth investigation by someone who claims to be an award winning journalist.
If you click the Look Inside! button on this book, the Table of contents lists 20 chapters, which is about 4 pages per chapter. And this “book” claims to find connections between the HaLeigh Cummings case, Casey Anthony case and also the Jon Benet Ramsey case.
Observing a Disturbing Trend involving a BAR approved lawyer and a LARP COURT Senior Counsel
In hindsight, there is a disturbing trend involving Robert David Steele and attorney Steven S. Biss involving various persons who are participating in the LARP court called the International Tribunal for Justice. That sovereign citizen-styled international tribunal has a Constitution and a Treaty that requires one’s red thumb print alongside a signatory’s name. One should always be careful about participating in fake organizations, especially those that attempt to put on a convincing show.
Steven Biss is a Virginia licensed attorney who has made his living working with the legitimate American court system; one wonders why he works in such close conjunction with a former CIA spy that is involved in a LARP COURT that lacks genuine authority or power.
If one looks back to 2017, others have remarked on Steele’s statement that Manual Chavez III aka Defango would serve as the front (tip of the spear) person in an Arizona lawsuit which Biss had prepared for Chavez. Defango had second thoughts about getting involved in that lawsuit against Jason Goodman of Crowdsource the Truth, and today seems to be forming an alliance with Goodman. We shall have to wait to see what that exactly entails with regard to the lawsuits against Goodman.
About that same time, David Seaman who has his own Youtube channel and claims to have been reporting on pedophilia/ human trafficking issues for ten years, became a witness for ITNJ. Biss prepared this lawsuit for David Seaman which can be read here: seaman lawsuit doc 1 12 3 2018.
Like the Timothy Holmseth case which was transferred from Virginia to Florida, the Seaman case was transferred from Virginia to California. That was when Seaman’s troubles began, as Biss dropped back from the lawsuit, leaving the plaintiff high and dry. As that lawsuit went from having counsel to placing the plaintiff in a pro se position, it is apparent that very few non-attorneys are able to deal with seasoned corporate attorneys who know U. S. law inside and out. Here is the document of the Defendant’s motion to dismiss. seaman motion to dismiss 6 5 2019
A reader of my blog sent me these Twitter comments which discuss the Seaman case.
All of these actions involving the use of the U. S. judicial court system to fulfill some mission which is fronted by a LARP sovereign citizen styled Court, is troubling to observe. The patterns of behavior noted in this article bear watching closely. It is not for nothing that sovereign citizen false legal theories have caused many citizens to lose their bearings and to find themselves imprisoned for their paper terrorism.
Beware of being duped by those who have formed international tribunals based on sovereign citizen “legal” theories. And if you think you have evidence of child trafficking, produce that evidence to those who can prosecute the perpetrators. The ITNJ has no such authority to prosecute, and they have no authority to protect their so-called witnesses.
