Why We Can’t Comment on this Petition about the Church of Scientology
Thank you for signing the petition “EXAMINE THE GOVERNMENT’S FAILURE TO INVESTIGATE AND PROSECUTE CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY CRIME, FRAUD AND ABUSE.” We appreciate your participation in the We the People platform on WhiteHouse.gov.
The We the People Terms of Participation explain that “the White House may decline to address certain procurement, law enforcement, adjudicatory, or similar matters properly within the jurisdiction of federal departments or agencies, federal courts, or state and local government.” The Department of Justice is charged with investigating federal crimes and enforcing federal criminal laws. Accordingly, the White House declines to comment on the specific law enforcement matter raised in this petition.
Stay tuned to markrathbun.wordpress.com. You have made an election year error of magnitude.
I had already worked on an analysis and handling to post concerning an anticipated response such as this – it is about what I expected. I am holding it till early this week when a) the next installment of the St Pete Times has been aired and thoroughly discussed, and b) I am of a cooler, more rational frame of mind.
As many of you know I did not originate this petition, and have never advocated depending on any agency to solve the corrupt corporate church of Scientology. But, when I read the petition, I immediately signed on and encouraged others to do the same. Any injustice gone unremedied is another nail in the coffin of humanity. Now that we are engaged, the game ain’t over till the fat lady sings.
A little secret only Miscavige, Mike Rinder and I know. Remember all those confessions that Mike and I signed that corporate Scientology made such a big deal of in their Freedom mags? They were coerced as Mike and I have noted. However, there is a strong grain of truth to some of them. The ones where we take responsibility for alleged gigantic external legal and PR problems – what is true is that we did take responsibility for them. Now, here is the rub. We DID take responsibility for every tough break the church got in the past thirty years enroute to establishing immunity and Miscavige never did, even though his fingerprints were all over every loss. We hung in when the going got tough and ultimately saw that we prevailed on all fronts. Of course, Miscavige – who took no responsibility for any of the hard knocks suffered along the way – took all credit for the ultimate victories.
In other words, Miscavige is a fraud. A sniveling, punk coward. Not a single one of the billionaire Wall Street con men whose greed destroyed the US economy over the past decade was indicted, let alone convicted. For the very same reasons Miscavige – an habitual, repeat felon – walks free: MONEY. That – according to everything that the core principles of Scientology stand for, let alone the United States of America – denotes weakness of the most insidious kind.
We – on the other hand – are from the school of the hard knocks. We haven’t even broke a sweat in all the monkey business corporate Scientology has thrown our way over the past two years. Plan accordingly.
