This blog has been hacked

This blog has been hacked by the forces of censorship.  Those who have been following might find the timing interesting in light of recent direction of the blog, and particularly since draft posts about strategies for 2010 were on deck.  Until you see a photo of Amy Scobee and I sitting together (not a photo shop job), do not trust anything you read on this blog as coming from other than those wanting to continue the Dark Ages.  Word press service is out for the holidays so it may be several days before we go up again.  I’ll be communicating through other means in the interim. Happy Holidays.

  1. Well Marty no you know how many people you haver reached. This is crazy because I just read the posts earlier about Clear and I was going to post my own story but I see that a nerve has been touched here.
    Good for you!
    Keep fighting the good fight!

  2. martyrathbun09

    Ex-RPFer, you and a number of others. My email and phone have been overflowing with calls/messages. Makes me wonder whether Clear uncertainty isn’t an intentional program to keep people in the haze.

  3. hmmmm better give all the Clears a call and find out how many have been smashed in by DM. The squirrels are starting to scream.

  4. My last technical action while I was in the Church of Scientology in 1993 was a C/S 53 that indicated “gone past Dianetic clear”. I had bad indicators and almost immediately blew from the Sea Org. (I never claimed I was Clear, so I temporarily lost faith in the validity of the tech.)

    There were some suspicious circumstances. My org might have wanted/needed me to be already Clear in order to do the SHSBC. Just a week or two before the C/S 53, the CO asked me in front of all the crew of my org whether or not I was already Clear. How embarrassing!

  5. Sure sounds like there is some definite intention to keep people pouring the money in. If someone does get to OT VIII and has done all the training how else to you keep them paying?
    Oh right, you tell them that they have never achieved anything and that “now” the real tech has been discovered and they will do it “for the first time” to get “the real EP”!
    What a load of crap. What gets me more is that people are actually PAYING to do services over that were apparently not done really at all. Shouldn’t they just tell the org, “Well since you weren’t standard I think you should repair or redo it for free. I paid to get standard tech and I didn’t get it so either fix it or give me the money back.”
    That is what I would do certainly!

    Wow Marty. I’m positive it is intentional. Invalidating the State of Clear is a High Crime and Miscavige is completely guilty of that many times over. Auditors, Clears and OTs…they’re a powerful bunch!

    You’re continuing to help people with standard LRH tech and putting the truth forward. Miscavige’s mind is squirming with lies and his tricks and deceit are being revealed and blown apart.

    Yay Marty and all you good guys and gals!!

  7. You obviously hit the button today! Somebody could not have this. Keep on!

  8. From:
    A number of people have come to see me to help sort out arduous, extended mind-games the church has played with them concerning the subject of Clear.

    It is quite remarkable that the church has had such success in confusing so many people about a subject that is simplicity itself.

    The basic on the chain is the McPherson case. In the summer of 1995 DM personally wrote an extended C/S r-factor to Lisa McPherson that denigrated all Flag tech terminals on her case and falsely declared her as Clear. Apparently having recognized herself she was not experiencing the calm that others had described the state as including, and having lost all faith in anyone beneath the COB himself sorting out what he had declared sorted out, Lisa became increasingly frantic and desperate about what was going on. Within three months Lisa had a psychotic break and died after a seventeen day squirrel Introspection Rundown at Flag.

    After McPherson died, Miscavige successfully withheld from even those handling the criminal and civil cases that he in fact had initiated the chain of events leading to her death. Then in his inimitable every-outpoint-is-a-why style of evaluation, DM instituted a number of arbitraries to make the attestation to the state of Clear an engramic episode. He created a pendulum swing whereby it became an increasingly complicated process to attest to Clear.

    DM briefed Flag tech terminals and tech and admin staff in a number of SO installations that there was no such thing as past life Clears. He said that all past life Clears had long ago been accounted for. Anyone with much technical training knows how specious and illogical such a claim is. But, for the many staff and public who were caught up in never ending Clear invalidation at the hands of the church, and subject to non-stop propaganda about DM’s immaculate conception, it seemed their confusions about Clear would go on for eternity.

    Two people who were directly invalidated by such Miscavige briefings have visited me, had their confusions about Clear sorted out, attested and quite happily moved on.

    Another trick perpetrated by DM is to pester those who have already attested to Clear with doubts and never-ending interrogations about their states before allowing them onto OT Levels. He’s got the tech heirarchies at Flag and AO’s programmed to program such people with endless sec checking. It seems the EP of those sec checks is not to have someone certain about Clear, but instead to become “certain” that DM is Source.

    Two people who were subjected to that type of treatment visited, were easily sorted out and are now solo auditing their OT levels.

    DM has g0ne so far as to redirect public who have been on the OT Levels for some time back onto Dianetics auditing; a high crime of some magnitude. This is particularly suppressive when one considers LRH devised a simple C/S to handle terminatedly anyone who might have gotten onto the OT Levels absent certainty about his or her Clear state.

    A bloke who had been put back onto engram running after NOTs visited, the LRH C/S was performed, and he no longer has any doubt or reservation about his Clear state.

    If five people thoroughly confused about their Clear states, all of whom sorted out next to instantaneously, could find their way to the middle of nowhere to get resolved – I fairly wonder just how many there are similarly situated within the C of Mestology.

    There is no reason to be confused about Clear for eternity.

  9. martyrathbun09

    Thanks Kirby, you rip.

  10. The tone arm is moving.

  11. Wow Marty!

    That’s just too frickin’ weird!

    Now I’m gettin’ paranoid.

    First, I’d just like to assure any FIOs that I may of audited that your secrets are safe. The Auditors Code prevents me from revealing anything.

    Your secrets are safe.


    Just in case.

    To be safe.

    As, ExRPFer astutely pointed out “a nerve has been touched here.”

    A very raw one indeed!

    This kind of thing happened once earlier back in 2000 when I wrote a contributing article for The whole site was hacked and their data files were purged.

    To quote, Ron’s favorite fiction author Ian Fleming in Goldfinger:

    ” Once is Happenstance. Twice is Coincidence. The third time is Enemy action”

    Anyway, Marty keep doing what you’re doing. They weren’t able to stop Justin from publishing the truth and they can’t stop you.

    Just make it inconvenient.

  12. How extensive is the hacking breach? Did they get IP addresses and emails of people here?

    Can the hackers be traced? Can legal action be taken? There are people who specialize in tracking down illegal internet harassment.

    I just noticed that *all comments* have been removed from the article “DM agent – Pablo Lobato.”

    Did anyone save those comments?

  13. Welcome Back Marty, I spotted the attack at once when I sow entheta as opposed to LRH data or facts.

  14. I was able to save them and I sent them to Marty as a PDF. Marty, let me know if you need them as a text document or in some other format.

  15. On December 3, 2009, Lise O’Kane of Brisbane, Australia officially
    resigned from the Church of Scientology explaining, “I was
    absolutely disgusted with what David Miscavige has done to our
    precious technology. With Reverse Dianetics and Reverse Scientology
    destroying so many lives worldwide, I realized some time ago the
    source of that plague was David Miscavige himself.”

    A Scientologist for more than 10 years, well respected and well
    liked throughout Scientology down under, Lise is a highly-skilled
    auditor and fully-interned Golden Age of Tech Class IV C/S who did
    her tech internship at AOSH ANZO. For the last five years, she held
    the posts of Tech Case Supervisor and Auditor in Brisbane org.

    Lise O’Kane was also Ed McBride’s auditor. For those of you who
    don’t know, Ed McBride was a soldier in the Australian army who was
    soaring after having just completed his auditing program in
    February 2007. Ed decided to take a day off and inexplicably was
    found dead 24 hours later. No one knows what happened. While his
    death was unrelated to his auditing, the Church’s irresponsible,
    secretive and evasive responses, coupled with the horrendous
    revelations of crush regging and human rights abuses worldwide
    convinced many that the Church had something to hide.

    Lise was deeply saddened at the Church’s attitude in regards to the
    McBride’s tragic loss (and as yet unexplained death of their son
    and brother) and how it was all about the protection of the Church
    and no care for the individual.

    When the Church received the news that Lise was going to resign,
    they sent in people to handle her from leaving. Like many staff
    they were being kept in the dark with no idea what was really going
    on in the world. So Lise took the opportunity to enlighten them, by
    handing them a copy of “What happened to training?” from Friends of LRH website.

    Finally free from the Church’s suppressive control as dictated by
    David Miscavige, Lise did what any normal human being would do, she
    reached out to the Ed McBride’s family expressing her own sorrow
    and condolences for their loss.

    Lise is now an INDEPENDENT SCIENTOLOGIST. Visit to read her official resignation
    from the Church of Scientology, written December 3, 2009, but just
    posted today.

    She can be reached at

    Hi Lise,

    that is quite a story.

    His auditing was fine, and I believe you.

    There is a young and healthy guy who does well in auditing, and then he “kills himself” just like that? Makes no sense.

    C of S tried to milk him but was he that kind of guy who would rather kill himself than unplugging the phone?

    Nobody knows what happened but do you have a suspicion?

    Here is what IS known about the death of Edward McBride:…1027-hih7.html

    “Between the completion of his auditing course on February 5 and his death two days later, Church of Scientology members called and texted Mr McBride 19 times.

    The contents of the calls and SMS messages is not fully known, after data including voicemail messages left on his PDA were irretrievably lost when the device’s battery went dead.

    But police had listened to them, and told the inquest they included “forceful” demands for Mr McBride to urgently attend the church to complete his spiritual training, as well as a warning US-based Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard “would not approve”.

    “You are putting another person’s job at risk through your actions,” was one account.

    “It is not kosher for you to be out of contact with me. You really should come in for an audit.”

    And: “This is not good enough. You need to call me. You are going to get me into a lot of trouble. You need to come in now, we need to get this sorted out.””

    More at the link above.

    I for one would like a full accounting (per KSW #1) of WHAT DID occur? What WAS run?
    Was he in fact red tagged?

    And why were his folders removed from the country?

    Honesty is the road to sanity.
    Welcome Lise. I hope you can shed some light on this.

    Thank you Lise for having the courage to stand up and be counted. It must have been very difficult to make this decision, knowing that many of your friends might shun you and that your church would try and smear your character.

    But everyone who stands up and says “Enough!” makes it easier for everyone else. And hopefully your example will prompt others to start looking at what is really happening in the CoS.

    It would be great to hear about what life is like being staff in an org on the front lines. We’ve heard that many of the Aussie public have left and that most of the orgs are in desperate trouble. Can you confirm this?


    Lise // December 23, 2009 at 11:20 pm | Reply

    hello, Not sure about all aussie Orgs but I know a lot and I mean alot of public have just drifted off the lines quietly not “officially” leaving but just sitting around “waiting for the Org to change”. I think “Hmm, where’s wait on the Know to mystery scale”. I think a lot of people don’t actually know whats going on and believe that the Church Bridge is the only Bridge and don’t want to give up their “only” option to freedom. I will be working on that one in my area. Aussie Orgs on a whole I believe are all doing badly with possibly the exception of Melbourne but not sure

    Lise, do you think the psychs might have been involved in Ed’s death? The news reports said he complained of stress and bullying previously, so they might have seen this as an opportunity to make Scientology look bad. Just wondered.

    Heather // December 23, 2009 at 2:36 pm | Reply

    Hi IndieScio, my perception is that most psychiatrists and psychologists who have heard of Scientology simply ignore it.

    Ed McBride was in the army – the elite Special Air Service. He would have had stress on the job and may have experienced bullying there too.

    HandymanJoe // December 23, 2009 at 5:03 pm | Reply

    I think IndieScio got a point.

    LRH never would have approved of the Aussie C of S non-Scientological behavior to bother the man beyond belief with calls but Ed was a stable guy and would no have killed himself over that.

    C of S wanting Ed dead? Nah, they rather want his money and no new scandal. They got so many already.

    Could enemies of Scientologists be involved? I think so. (Let’s not forget that C of S and Indie-Scientologists do have still common enemies and our religion, the tech and LRH is the main target. Just read the insane hatred that Anonymous is posting!)

    Don’t want to open old wounds, Marty, but your Mom’s death could have been a psychiatric experience on her too. They know how to confuse people and drive them over the edge.

    Johann Benedikt // December 23, 2009 at 8:38 pm

    Let’s not forget, that Co$ is the entity who had something to hide and therefore send Ed’s church files to the US, so that the Australian authorities could not get a hold of them, not “the psychs”.
    Surely Co$ has had no problems to release so called “priest pertinent” confidential auditing files in the past.

    Cat Daddy // December 23, 2009 at 9:37 pm

    To HandymanJoe:

    “C of S wanting Ed dead? Nah, they rather want his money and no new scandal”

    So thrue.

    “L. R. H. in Clearing Procedure, 1957:

    “The work was free. Keep it so.”

    Therefore, although we have no such stature as the Great Philosophies, I charge you with this – look to source writings, not to interpretations. Look to the original work, not offshoots.

    If I have fought for a quarter of a century, most of it alone, to keep this work from serving to uphold the enslavers of Man, to keep it free from some destructive “pitch” or slant, then you certainly can carry that motif a little further.

    I’ll not always be here on guard. The stars twinkle in the Milky Way and the wind sighs for songs across the empty fields of a planet a Galaxy away.

    You won’t always be here.

    But before you go, whisper this to your sons and their sons – “The work was free. Keep it so.””
    L. Ron Hubbard quote

    “Don’t want to open old wounds,”But yet you go on doing excactley that.

    “Could enemies of Scientologists be involved? I think so. (Let’s not forget that C of S and Indie-Scientologists do have still common enemies and our religion, the tech and LRH is the main target. Just read the insane hatred that Anonymous is posting!)”

    LOOK closer at COB without COB no protests.

    Bishop Desmond Tutu:
    I am not interested in picking up crumbs of compassion thrown from the table of someone who considers himself my master. I want the full menu of rights.

    “LRH never would have approved of the Aussie C of S non-Scientological behavior to bother the man beyond belief with calls but Ed was a stable guy and would no have killed himself over that. ”

    “The freedom of an individual depends upon that individual’s freedom to alter his considerations of space, energy, time and life and his roles in it. If he cannot change his mind about these, he is then fixed and enslaved amidst barriers such as those of the physical universe, and barriers of his own creation. Man thus is seen to be enslaved by barriers of his own creation. He creates these barriers himself, or by agreeing with things which hold these barriers to be actual.”
    L. Ron Hubbard

    “an opportunity to make Scientology look bad” – why make any effort at all when the Organization of Scientology excels at doing that just by their behavior alone?
    This knee jerk reaction of blaming the “psychs” for anything bad is absolutely ridiculous, if not an excellent example of paranoia & been told what to think by the CoS. The orgs are emptying, the public is becoming more and more weary of the bait & switch tactics. The Organization of Scientology will be pushed out of our nation in due course.

    And that will have NOTHING to do with the “psychs”; that will be the result of us the citizens having enough of this Organization and it’s disregard to basic human rights.

    Huckleberry // December 24, 2009 at 2:14 pm

    Tamphex, I forlornly agree that under the DM reign, basic human rights are denied to SO members, but please don’t hold up the psychiatric community as the beacon.

    I can’t believe that a reg cycle – however unpleasant – would drive a soldier to suicide.

    Did Ed blow after completing his auditing? Did he attest? Was he red-tagged?

    If he blew and went out of comm, that’s a big red flag and if it was me, I’d be doing whatever I could to get him back into the org.

    Very impressed with your self-determinism. Your photo speaks volumes. You are my poster woman for, “I’m not going to take this B.S. any longer.”

    My favorite part of your resignation letter:

    “I am also using my right to assign a condition because I am damned if I am going to wear the condition myself for the lack of assigning it.

    I assign the Church of Scientology management and all its entities the condition of TREASON.”

    When I went public I wished I would have written those words. I have thought about the COS being in TREASON. I agree they are in TREASON.

    How do you know that his death was unrelated to auditing? If I were auditing a person and was not qualified to deliver a process to someone, flubbed it and caused a psychotic break in that individual; I would not readily admit if it could be used against me in criminal proceedings.

    When I was a little kid I grow up looking at the early cartoons of the “justice league”.
    It was for me a dream that such a group of justice heroes could exist. Shortly after I grow up…
    It comes a time in the life when one needs to realize what is really happening around one.
    When this time arrives is not always an easy walk. Looking back into history one sees that anyone that dares to wake up his fellows is punished by the status quo. But as a friend of us say; they are the only beings that have made space for have a free society and free beings. In this year full of lies dissolved and light of truth I want to tell you I feel special and blessed that in a short period of time such a giant beings have stood up and say NO MORE.
    It starts with Marty, Mosey, Steve, Jason, Larry, Mark, Jeff, Hiro, Shannon, Geir, Mike, Dan, Mariette, Christie, Cathy, Jack, my dear friend Mary Jo, Sherry, Paul, Don, Amy, Shelly, Gary, Jackie, Haydn, Lucy, Marika, Katrina, Martin, Ken, Jim, Tom, Ted and Ignazio.
    As you can see I remember all of them. For me they are heroes and you are the new one of this “justice league”
    A hero does what is needed in the time needed with no excuses.
    It takes a lot of courage and many will not do a thing for fear.
    The battle for freedom in mankind will never stop. You are, with all the rest of Independents, constructing this ground to walk all free. Life and God bless you all the life.
    From your new fan…

    “When the Church received the news that Lise was going to resign, they sent in people to handle her from leaving. Like many staff they were being kept in the dark with no idea what was really going on in the world. So Lise took the opportunity to enlighten them, by
    handing them a copy of “What happened to training?” from Friends of LRH website.

    I love the way you handled this. An act more deserving of a freedom medal than most reported from the IAS.

    Thank you. funny you should mention freedom medal winners. n 2008 one of the winners was called Tim Bowles. Some of my research uncovered that he was actually a lawyer for the church and many many more outpoints. Very interesting when you actually read and observe the magazines. Outpoints are glaring but I think most Scios found “Scn news” extremely boring and trashed it before resading it. I certainly did . but after all whats happened I read it and discovered outpoint after outpoint. Each outpoint I found (false stats) I questioned at my “handlings”. Of course when confronted with the truth the Church had no answers. This in itself gave me courage and allowed me to stay in full control of each and every meeting

    Hi Marty, Your post regarding Lise has upset some of the Australians who are ex Brisbane staff and public.
    Ed McBride was not “soaring” on his auditing as suggested. This is an impossibility as within 48 hours after his last session, he tied himself to an electrical sub station, and that’s some serious voltage by the way, and killed himself. I would call this a great big fat RED TAG.
    If you read his coroners report ,the guy already had issues before scientology and probably should never have been allowed auditing in the first place, however I can see how this was “overlooked” as the Brisbane org is much smaller than even a staffed mission and they are desperate for public and G.I.
    I am not saying she killed him as he may have been going to do it anyway and the auditor failed to help him with what was C/Sed, but whos to say that misapplication didn’t drive him over the edge due to him being already unstable?
    I understand if you don’t post this but please look at all the data and actual evidence and do research next time before posting a “soaring PC” result when the guy committed serious hurry curry on himself right after his last session.
    I love a lot of what you say and do and I don’t know what you have been told. I am all for letting people know that Lise is out and pointing out her letter of resignation, that’s a good thing but Please marty, be more diligent when commenting in the future of such nature as “soaring PC” as clearly Ed Mcbride was not soaring. He is dead!! And was within 48 hours of his last session. Did you know this? What do you make of this?
    Were the org guys bombarding him with texts and calls to get him in to handle a nasty red tag???
    I look not listen, and Something’s wrong here.

    Living Life, I have studied tomes of publicly available, and as yet not publicly released, information – including the lengthy coroner’s report. Your comment contains at least two assumptions not backed by evidence. So, I suggest you do as you assert you do, “I look not listen.” I stand by my post. I think you ought to read it more carefully.

    From Living Life: “I am not saying she killed him as he may have been going to do it anyway and the auditor failed to help him with what was C/Sed, but whos to say that misapplication didn’t drive him over the edge due to him being already unstable?”

    This is not only nasty gossip but highly libellous and I’m shocked you published it, Marty. I don’t know Lise at all but any intimation that she may have been responsible for the dead soldier is outrageous in the absence of beyond-a-reasonable-doubt proof.

    >This is not only nasty gossip but highly libellous [sic]
    >and I’m shocked you published it, Marty.

    Huckleberry, read it again. Loving Life’s comment does not contain an accusation asserted as fact. It contains a speculation about a possibility in language that clearly shows it to be such.

    In any case, Marty is damned if he does, damned if he don’t with this.

    If he doesn’t allow it, the Anons and critics will point to that as clear proof he censors anything negative about scientology or scientologists. If he does allow it, freezoners will rail about it being unfair to Lise.

    LL, unless you have Ed McBride’s folder and have done a thorough FES you don’t know what happened, so what you are writing here is purely speculation.

    This may surprise you but many cases with high security clearances, have had some form of psychiatric treatment or at least an evaluation by a psychiatrist. Some have been exposed to narcosynthesis.

    To dismiss this possible factor as “conspiracy theory” as some have done shows a definite lack of understanding on their part.

    The evidence of this being a possibility is *not* speculation and has been documented.

    As I wrote unless you have the folder to hand you do not know if what happened was directly due to the auditing, to environmental factors or because of some form of psychiatric treatment or evaluation.

    The fact is that standard auditing does not kill people.

    If you think that this is even possible then as far as I’m concerned you are on the wrong board.

    This Case appears to me like a bag of snakes, I am afraid to put my hand in it.

    How funny that someone with issues shouldn’t receive auditing. I thought Hubbard invented the cure for insanity.
