Miscavige Shock Squad Hits Casablanca

We interrupt the ongoing exposure of David Miscavige as the greatest suppressor in Scientology history for this News Flash. David Miscavige has directly responded to the posts over the last two days, entitled and subtitled King of Squirrels respectively. Apparently, unsatisfied with ending standard tech delivery behind the walls of his “church”, he’s sending goons clear to Corpus Christi to stop it where he heard it is happening.

The assault by his Scientology (OT Ambassador “VIII” John Allender and friends) Shock Squad was captured on video tape, which can be watched below.

Just a bit of background and context is in order.

This morning I had just completed Lori Hodgson’s first two STANDARD sessions, which incidentally included cleaning up the trauma of having been stalked, assaulted and threatened by “OT VIII”, “OT Ambassador” John Allender.  That assault occured the day after she returned from her first trip to Casablanca in December. For the back story see, https://markrathbun.wordpress.com/2010/12/15/lori-hodgson-is-back-in-the-saddle/

While on a lunch break, our quiet theta environment was interrupted by loud pounding at my front door.  When I opened the door, there was John Allender with three other Miscavige goons in full Miscavige squirrel regalia.  Check it for yourself – it is documented below.

After the Sheriff got done interviewing me and Allender and co separately, the Sheriff told me Miscavige’s boys wanted to make a deal.  If I did not bring CRIMINAL TRESPASSING, STALKING, AND CRIMINAL HARASSMENT charges, Allender and co would not bring “assault” and “criminal mischief” charges (the latter for having took the microphone Allender shoved in my face out of his hand and off its cord  – the former for a 250 pound guy who looks like Sonny Barger on a bender sticking his stomach into my path of progress in the doorway of my own home).

Apparently Miscavige just doesn’t get my repeated messages to him that I (and Mike Rinder, and others) just do not make deals with the devil.  I told the Sheriff I’d roll the dice.  Bring it.  Don’t worry about fees, I’m representing myself if the D/A decides to bring the counter-charges.

There will be a trial in the San Patricio County Courthouse, unless of course Allender and co plead no contest.  Should be interesting.

Miscavigetown on the anniversary of Jonestown

I said it from the outset. The overriding reason I spoke to the St Pete Times in the first place last year was to prevent Miscavige from going the route of Jim Jones of People’s Temple.   I told Anderson Cooper that CNN’s Jonestown Anniversary documentary got me to thinking about the parallels between David Miscavige and Jim Jones.   Apparently, the maintstream media were intimidated by Radical Scientology from airing these comments.  Well, MotorCityRedneck (whomever that is) has drawn those parallels very graphically on this anniversary of the Jonestown massacre.  I thank that person for going through the trouble of effectively communicating what I apparently was not able to articulate convincingly enough.  Fasten your seat belts. Here it is:

Blog moderation policy

Just after I blew RTC  I spent 35 days on the road looking for a peaceful, faraway place to settle.   I wound up by the Gulf of Mexico on the US-Mexican border.  I later moved a tad north, but still in South Texas.  I travel a bit, and I always love coming home.  It is not just the ocean and the space.  More important I think is the culture.  You know what a big cattle rancher or oil man calls a lowly busboy in a taqueria down here? 

He calls him “Sir.”   Every man initially refers to every other man as “Sir.”  Everybody starts out with respect.  If one demonstrate’s he is not entitled to respect, only then does he lose it.  Sometimes it doesn’t take much to accomplish that.  Just be a cabron (loose translation: a prick) and see how long they keep referring to you as “Sir.”  But it is easy to keep respect. All you have to do is treat others with respect.   Most folk who come here to visit remark on how friendly people here are.  I think it has to do with their cultural upbringing and the workability of the idea of granting beingness to others indiscriminately.  Christian folk refer to it as the Golden Rule.  

I read a blog post of Jeff Hawkins recently that got me thinking about all this http://leavingscientology.wordpress.com/2010/09/30/a-quick-note/.

I think he very succinctly articulated my unwritten moderation policy.  Though I don’t have the ‘three week’ rule in force, the rest of it sums it up real well for me.

Further, I take into consideration the purpose of this blog while moderating: to help one another do as its title suggests, move on up a little higher. 

I encourage a wide variety of viewpoints and information, particularly where they assist the process of moving on up and onward.  I discourage covert and overt attempts to invalidate the idea of transcending. 

Some people attempt to distract from the topic at hand. Whether it is an OSA operative or just a person with an inability to control his own negative impulses, the result is the same.  I discourage it. 

OSA operatives, and people with inabilities to control their own negative impulses are fond of accusing me of  “censorship.”  Some of them try to draw a distinction between this forum and  Ex Scientologists Message Board or Why We Protest, painting the latter as real “free speech forums.”  

Well, turns out ESMB and WWP have their tolerance levels – and moderation policies (whether written or not) too.

Let’s take the case of Wayne Frompke, who specialized in distraction with didactic polemics.  We tolerated him for months and tried to talk reason with him so that he might get a grip on his obsessions.  He continued with what amounted to something on the order of spam.  When I checked him, he announced this blog was censorsed and went to WWP where “anything goes.” 

Wayne lasted less than a week on WWP.

Here is what a moderator there tried to explain to him, apparently to no avail:

Safe,

I won’t say “welcome”, because you joined a couple of months ago
and we corresponded then. I will say a few things in response to
this thread and your posts in it:

    * You keep saying that this board practices “true freedom of
speech”. We do believe in free speech. Your constitutional right to
freedom of speech and your human right to free speech mean that you
should not be stopped from speaking out. But that does not mean
that we must allow you to say whatever you want on this board. This
board is moderated. There are rules. If you break the rules, you
will be infracted and may be banned. If the content of your post is
bad enough, we will delete it. Yes, we will censor you.
    * I am going to give you an infraction for importing drama from
another board.
    * I read marty’s board a lot. You have made some posts there
that I really agree with and I have appreciated your input.
    * Many of your posts there are too long and you post a LOT.
Your voice has been too dominant in some threads, in my view. I
often don’t read everything that you write.
    * I think you advertise the non-violent communication stuff as
if you were on commission for the guy’s book sales. It pisses me
off how much you carry on about it. Don’t do that here. Or rather,
stop doing it here, because you’ve already started.
    * I actually thought marty was incredibly patient with you. You
made your point about how you thought mike should have dealt with
the PI’s. Then you went on and on and on covering the same ground.
I thought you were being naive. I did not think Mike handled the
guy too badly at all – IN ALL THE CIRCUMSTANCES. But that’s just my
opinion.
    * You seem to have turned very quickly into an anti-martyite.
Too quickly for my taste. I don’t trust you.

END OF WWP THREAD

I treat this blog like my home.  I entertain a wide variety thoughts and viewpoints.  However, when an originator demonstrates it is a one way street and he isn’t really interested in learning something, but only in enturbulating or propagandizing, I show him the door.

Since OSA has had a well-financed, steadily-worked-on campaign going for more than a year to infiltrate my home and this blog with the specific objective of enturbulating me to the point where I start axing people ala Miscavige himself, I think by and large we’ve done pretty well keeping the ship pointed in the direction of moving on up a little higher.

Looney Tunes

Hold the presses. You many not have been outed after all. 

I had little time to analyze the LT posting referred to in the last post.  However, I was contacted by some WWP people to verify whether or not one of their own actually sent to my blog one of the comments LT published in his photobucket.  Turns out, by comparing search data from my blog with other external evidence we discovered the alleged comment was manufactured by LT.   It was never sent by the alleged sender.  Now, the nature of the comment tended to make the WWP person look like a rat working with me to screw over other WWP folk.  Manufactured out of whole cloth by OSA.  Think DM is getting a little uneasy about disparate factions – who are on to him – going into communication? 

You doubt OSA sent the LT email?  Well, LT send his message from the same computer Kim did. Who is Kim? The OSA operative that attempted to, on behalf of Miscavige of course,  declare Mosey unclear.  Remember?  https://markrathbun.wordpress.com/2010/10/02/has-miscaviges-church-run-out-of-clears-to-invalidate/

More than one person has reported to me that the IP addresses shown for them in the LT photobucket depictions are not their IP addresses.

Apparently, just as Miscavige stage manages fraudulent events six times a year, with fancy graphics and a/v, in order to bamboozle his followers, Miscavige’s OSA creates evidence in attempts to destroy us (in this case me). 

Mosey calls Miscavige Wile E. Coyote.  That is because it seems that every one of his J Edgar Hoover Cointelpro Ops winds up with a stick of dynamite going off in his hand.

Th, tha, tha, tha, tha, tha…that’s all folks!

Warning: May be shocking for some, but it is one major reason we are here

How is this for a shocking graphic to start a post?  It’s my creation…. well, mostly. I stole it from CCHR.  It’s here for shock value, so don’t take it too seriously, okay?  

Approximately 9 months ago (or so — I’m bad with time, so take that for what it is worth), I approached Marty about writing an entry for his blog.  My angle?   Simple — hardcore critic — the guy who did the $cientology-KILLS website and T-shirts with OT-III, supports independant Scientologists.   Not the most earth shattering headline, I must confess.

I haven’t been active protesting Scientology in over a decade.  They were downright vicious when it came to shutting me down. I received the personal attentions of Dave Lubow.  What did they dig up on me?  Bounced checks and bad credit, basically. Having gone through a divorce over the years preceeding my activism, and being young, dumb, wildly irresponsible, and willing to waste a large percentage of my income to do things like …make t-shirts to give away or sell (at a loss! despite the Church’s PR that I profited wildly), probably made me an easy target.  Lubow even called my mother!   The man is truly a turd.  Sorry.

At the time, I also confessed to being Scamizdat (blogger note: maybe Mike can explain this, but I vaguely recall Scamizdat posted some upper level material and we tried to crush a harsh DM critic Grady Ward through civil litigation as the poster), as part of the Grady Ward case.  Even after going through deposition with Helena Kobrin (who still owes me muffins) and Eric Leiberman, they declined to accept my confession and still pushed forward against Grady.  Granted, my confession wasn’t enough for them to pin specific acts on me.  But I cost them tremendous amounts of money, and greatly enjoyed the telephone updates to DM throughout the deposition.  These updates were done in a room next door to the Deposition room, and hysterically, they didn’t realize that there was basically a window between the two rooms.  The “window” allowed myself, Grady and the transcriptionist unfettered audio access to their calls.   

It was funny, but at the time I failed to realize the significance.  That they would call DM (or perhaps it was even Marty on the other end!) (blogger note: wasn’t me, was it you Mike?) in response to a depo of some little guy who just had the stupidity/courage/something to stand up and say, “I am Spartacus!”

After the major Lisa McPherson protest in Clearwater — the protest where I met Bob Minton — the protest that I recruited Lawrence Wollersheim to join us on — the protest where I first met Dave Lubow (I’m such a name dropper!), I had Co-Organized the Boulder Colorado Protest.  The Boulder protests generated enough noise that they flew in Sylvia Stanard and Joe Neal (or O’Neal?) and some gal from Portland to handle me and mine.  

Great protest…We got Wollersheim and Bob Penny to protest side-by-side while Denver DSA Deb Danos held a sign saying “Wollersheim Used Penny.”

All in all, things went well.

During the protest there was an interesting exchange that I documented afterwards in an internet post which you can find here: 

http://groups.google.com/group/alt.religion.scientology/browse_thread/thread/6c4713c07f4c6dd8/14d28739143eaa78?hl (blogger note: contains reference to OT III data)

The whole thread is worth reading.

It went basically like this…  Joe Neal (O’Neal, I guess) confronted me during the protest and pointed to one of our fellow picketers (who had dressed up as the alien “Xenu”) and made the statement, “That is Bigotry”.     

I raised it as an issue then, and the moment never left me.   Was it bigotry?   Maybe.

Whether it was a fair point or not that Joe raised that day is really beside the point.   What followed is what makes that exchange particularly interesting.  

See, I started to ponder where the line between protest, complaint and bigotry was.   I wondered, to myself, if a scientology reformation were to occur, do I so hate the ideas that I couldn’t tolerate it?  Or do I mean what I say?   Would I tolerate a kinder, gentler scientology?

The years passed…  Lubow did his thing and shut me up.  Kobrin traded removal of my name from the churches blackPR pages for my scientology-kills.net domain. An action I still feel no small amount of shame for.  Although I should point out that the church did not uphold its side of the domain-name bargain.  I demanded poppy seed muffins, I was promised poppy-seed muffins… I never received them.  Criminals.

So, as I said, redundantly, a decade passed.  I did my own thing.  I caught glimpses of the “anonymous” uprising here and there in the news, and then Marty…   I found Marty’s page.    See, Marty was of particular interest to me in the last months of being a critic. I couldn’t believe what I was reading.  The man had left!   He was, from my limited understanding, the man behind the curtain on so many things.  I knew he was important, other critics knew he was important, but he was an enigma to me, just the same.    

Here he is… blogging.

So I have been reading.  I still find much of the “tech” repugnant to reason and science. But in the past year I have been reading Marty’s Blog and there’s this nagging question in the back of my head.   It’s really Joe Neal’s question… or maybe not, but at least owes its roots to Joe’s question…. 

It is, “Is this a brand of Scientology that I can co-exist with?”.    

It is, to me, proof that although my actions might have said “bigotry” in the past, that my mind and heart were not working from a place of bigotry at all.  In the end, I am not blind.

If Marty is Honest — and I have no reason to think otherwise — This is a Scientology that I can peacefully and happily co-exist with.  I am not arrogant enough to believe that you all NEED my validation.  But I wanted to give it anyway.

Marty?  If you back off of it one inch…  I will be here to protest you.   

I wish all of you, everyone…. the best of luck in saving your religion.  You have my support.

Anonymous or Miscavige?

Just like clockwork, the day before I head out of town the shenannigans step up.  First, the unordered pizza is delivered. Then an unending battery of phone calls to home and cell.  There is a distortion filtered voice ominously announcing that I am wrong, that David Miscavige is not the source of the oppression dished out by the church of Scientology. It is L Ron Hubbard. I am to be dealt with because I say otherwise. I am being watched. 

No shit, Sherlock!  If you are gonna go through the trouble of throw-away phones, voice distorters, hiring some punks to script and execute this stuff, and coordinate it all around felonious mis-use of travel computers, at least tell me something I don’t know, and that I care about.

It sounds very much like an Anonymous prank. But, do they have access to airpline reservation information like we know Miscavige’s “church” does?  And thinking over the message, who would be more apt to send that one in particular, Anonymous or Miscavige?

It is probably an academic question, since Anonymous and Miscavige depend upon one another for their very existences, see https://markrathbun.wordpress.com/2009/11/12/the-great-middle-path-redux/

The question really amounts to casual musing since, no matter who they are, they are attempting to divert a hurricane with spit wads.

Oh, yeah for law enforcement subscribers, the telephone sending the threats was 361-215-0394.
