Learn to Evade Tax at the Scientology Chapel

Bruce Wiseman and Kevin Burke are corporate Scientology stalwarts.   They are the name partners of Wiseman & Burke the firm that makes money by handling the money of corporate Scientologists with big bucks.  Wiseman is the wise guy who puts out the creepy,  world-conspiracy paranoia tracts that justify so much corporate Scientologist unlawfulness (some under the handle John Truman Wolfe).   Incidentally, he rails about the bankers who produce nothing but make their money off of the labor and money of others; and guess what Wiseman and Burke does for a living?  He also appears on television and lobbies elected officials on behalf of Scientology Inc front group CCHR (Citizens Commission on Human Rights).   Burke has covered Wiseman financially for years so that he could play out the Scientology Inc. demagogue gig full time.

Wiseman and Burke are opinion leaders in the corporate Scientology field, and are fully backed and sponsored by the David Miscavige administration.  Here are only two of many recent examples of church premises being used by the duo to ply their trades and pimp Miscavige causes:

Now, here’s the rub.   Scientologists who come to hear these guys are shielded by artful use of compartmentalization of information only possible under Miscavige’s repressive Disconnect policies (keeping people it the dark by severing all their ties to friends, family and business contacts should they discuss or forward any unauthorized information about those in good stead with Miscavige).

Now, see this edict issued by  STATE OF CALIFORNIA, BUSINESS, TRANSPORTATION AND HOUSING AGENCY of  the DEPARTMENT OF CORPORATIONS:

DESIST AND REFRAIN ORDER ON WISEMAN AND BURKE

The upshot of all this is that the IRS-recognized, tax-exempt ‘church’ of Scientology is using their American taxpayer subsidized premises to sponsor and host seminars by folk who have been ordered by the State of California to cease and desist with their off-shore, TAX EVASION consultation services.

Some church.

David Miscavige’s kind of guys.

Combatting Disconnection

A most significant advance in the cause of disintegrating DISCONNECTION (Scientology Inc. brand shunning) was announced here late last week. For those who missed it during the flurry of breaking news, you can see it here, Fairmans’ Disarm Scientology Disconnection.

In the wake of that long bomb, Renata and Claudio Lugli advanced the ball further on a Italian national TV program.  (English subtitles included)  They also helped in our ongoing efforts to differentiate corporate Scientology from the subject of Scientology itself and the independent movement.

Karmic vortex*. Meet spiritual juggernaut.

*term coined by J. Swift, Karmic Vortex.   He posted this on 30 March 2008.  Though he had no way to know it through PMR (physical matter reality) channels, at the time he wrote that Mat Pesch and Amy were just connecting up with Mosey and me – the first Scientology-related connection I had made since leaving corporate Scientology, which led to everything else.

Alaska Goes Independent

The following doubt announcements were sent to me by the, until very recently, Course Supervisor of the church of Scientology Mission of  Anchorage,  Alaska, and her Class VIII husband.  These are important documents, on the order of potential impact as A Letter from Garcia and Class XII Karen De La Carriere’s independence announcement.  Please carefully read them and do everything you can to give them the furthest possible dissemination among Scientologists. Their data is fresh, and their research is remarkable.  What a couple of magnificent thetans!

Doubt Announcement 9/16/2012 by Susan Crane

I am writing you as a friend and fellow Scientologist who is concerned about the current direction of the Church of Scientology.  This write-up reflects some of the discrepancies I have observed between the activities of the Church of Scientology as a separate entity to the technology of L. Ron Hubbard.   I am completely dedicated to the works of LRH and the technology of Dianetics and Scientology.

Even though Scientology is being delivered in Anchorage, AK with great benefits to individuals, the group is still connected to suppressive actions of the Church of Scientology, specifically those condoned by David Miscavige.  I will no longer support the direction the church has been going under his leadership with off-policy programs.  I cannot violate my own personal integrity any longer.

I have been in Scientology since 1987 and have been a staff member for 15 of those 25 years, currently supervising at the Anchorage Mission.  I am a Flag Interned Class IV Auditor (pre Golden Age of Tech), OT V and Patron of the IAS.  I have held several positions within the church ranging from Public Service Secretary, Cram Off, Class IV Auditor, Course Sup and A/ED. While I have had personal disagreements over the years with the way management was being run, violations of LRH policy and tech, it was usually isolated incidents and I felt it best to keep the show on the road. That said, I have had a nagging “feeling” that something was not right within the church.  I have done a lot of listening over the years and not a lot of looking.  I’ve been told not to read the internet, listen to news, etc. as there may be entheta.  I have always been a “good” Scientologist and never looked.

Recently, there have been some high ranking Sea Org members who have either been declared or have left the church.  A couple of years ago I was watching a news show and Mike Rinder, a former spokesman for the Church of Scientology, was being interviewed and had left the church and was Declared.  Some of you may recall Mr. Rinder as routinely being one of the presenters at the International Events.  I was shocked but didn’t bother to look.   Last fall, my husband had told me that Dan Koon had also left the church and been declared.  If you did the ProTRs course in the 90’s, he was “Joe Howard” in the film.  He worked directly with LRH filming the ProTRs film and now he was a declared SP.  This just didn’t add up in my universe.  Another SP is Larry Anderson who is the narrator in the Orientation film.

I decided it was time to get my head out of the sand and start to look.  After all, I live in the United States and I should be able to communicate with whoever I like and not be suppressed or told not to.

HCOB  11 April 1982 SEC CHECKING IMPLANTS LRH

An implant is an enforced command or series of commands installed in the reactive mind below the awareness level of the individual to cause him to react or behave in a prearranged way without his “knowing it.”

IMPOSED SILENCE.  “The simplest and most common implant – and its lightest but not least deadly form—is the command to withhold.  Implants could be said to be “methods of preventing knowledge or communication: and this can extend to the point of the person himself denying himself the data.  The commonest “imposed silence” is probably the threatened child – an “if you tell, you will be punished.”  Or simply ordering him not to tell.  This tends to occlude his own memory and can be classified as an implant.”

The church “culture” has become one of not reading entheta or negative press about the church, don’t communicate to others anything negative about the church, don’t read the internet, don’t communicate to your friends if the church is engaging in a program or activity that violates an HCOB or HCO PL.  Per policy, one should write-up actions that disagree with tech or policy.  However, if one does KR certain activities, my experience has been Sec Checks being order on the individual at his own expense.

On January 1st, 2012, Forrest and I were traveling back to Anchorage from visiting my mother in Georgia.  He googled “Scientology New Years Eve event” in search of any releases or announcements from the New Years Eve event.  Instead, what came up was an email from Debbie Cook, former Captain of the FSO for 17 years, OEC, FEBC (Flag Executive Briefing Course) and DSEC (Data Series Evaluators Course).  She is now declared by the church.  At the time of her email, she was not declared and in good standing.  I read the email and AGREED with every single point – FROM MY OWN REALITY AND VIEWPOINT.  There was only one point I didn’t agree with and it was only because I didn’t have first- hand knowledge of the events.  Not only that, I was familiar with the references she quoted.   I have heard comments that she violated her Nondisclosure Agreement when she left the church.  I have to ask myself this question, why did she even have to sign a nondisclosure agreement to begin with?  Was this to protect the church from her disclosing upper level confidential materials?  Was this to protect the church from some communication about OT IX or X or some other confidential project in the works?  It didn’t quite make sense to me.  Because of the above outpoints, I decided to search further as to what was happening in the church.

Outpoint:  The church seems to be operating as a money motivated enterprise with an insatiable appetite, more concerned with fundraising and cannibalizing its existing field rather than caring about the individual and getting them up the bridge.

What does LRH say?  HCO PL 31 Jan 1983 “The Reason for Orgs”  “The only reason orgs exist is TO SELL AND DELIVER MATERIALS AND SERVICE TO THE PUBLIC…THE OBJECT IS TOTALLY FREED BEINGS!”  Also LRH ED 131 INT of 8 Dec 1970: Orgs have only 2 major final valuable products.  One is well-trained auditors.  The other is satisfied pcs.”  And, “Tech and Admin policy exist only to assist making these two products IN VOLUME.”  For the past 8 months, my husband and I have been following the completions for CC Nashville, Denver Org, ASHO, ASHO UK.  This has not been occurring.

At every turn, one is made to ask for donations, i.e. IAS, books, Ideal Orgs, various library campaigns.  From my observation, most people have a relatively fixed income.  I have seen many individuals and families having to declare bankruptcy due to financial strain from regging.  Maxing out credit cards, refinancing homes, increasing credit card limits seems to be the order of the day.  There is complete disregard for the individual’s ability to pay back the debt.  Additionally, I donate to several other causes outside of the church.  I can donate a small amount, say $25.00, and I will receive the most theta acknowledgement.  One would have thought I donated 1000’s of dollars.  When I offer a donation to the IAS, I get a lame acknowledgment and then pressure for how much more I need to donate, frequently turning into a several hour reg cycle if I don’t give in to the demands.

In September, 2012, we had the first Maiden Voyage event at the mission.  We had an IAS reg come up here from CA as well as a staff member from the Seattle Org.  After the MV event, the IAS reg gave a very short briefing – 10 minutes tops- about how the church was going to get ethics in on the government and needed us to donate for this campaign.  He already had the agreement of a couple to donate $2000.00 for this cause and wanted others to do the same.  A couple other people offered donations.  He then said he would meet with others independently.  He got with me and we scheduled a time to meet the next day.  I met with him and without further enlightenment as to the need for the dollars or what the IAS was planning to do with the donation, this was his communication:

How much do I make?  How much does my husband make?  How much do we have in our savings?  What are our investments?  Do we have any inheritance?  Are we expecting any inheritance?  How much do we owe on our credit cards?  How much is available on our credit cards?  Do we own gold and/or silver? Property?  IRA’s?  In the middle of this battery of questions, I asked him why he was asking me all of this.  (Duh!) His response was to “qualify” me.  I then asked him “What about enlightening me on why you need the money”?  His response was “We’ll get to that”.  Well, we never got to that because I made sure he knew I was not qualified to donate a large amount of money.  No further enlightenment came as to the need of the money.  Is this LRH?  I have personally experienced multiple IAS reg cycles where the goal is 1000’s, even 10’s of thousands of dollars for the IAS.  Of course all of this is for the greater good for the greater number of dynamics.   After all, the third dynamic is more important than the first dynamic.  The fact that I was contributing time as a staff member doesn’t even enter into the equation.

What does LRH say about the dynamics?  Per Professional Auditor’s Bulletin #83, * 8 May 1956, “The Conditions of Existence”, Vol. III page 375, LRH states “There is no thought or statement here that any one of these eight dynamics is more important than the others.  While they are categories (divisions) of the broad game of life, they are not necessarily equal to each other.  It will be found amongst individuals that each person stresses one of the dynamics more than the others, or may stress a combination of dynamics as more important than other combinations”.   I have not seen the caring for the individual in a long time.  There has been so much pressure brought to bear on the public that they are unable to afford their own bridge anymore.

Concerning “Ideal Orgs”:  Since when is a new building and a new church the same thing?  That sounds like A=A=A to me.   The PR for the church announces all of the new “churches” it has opened recently, i.e. Ideal Orgs.  However, they are the same churches only new buildings.  The ideal org seems to be based primarily on physical appearance, not actual production. Again, I have not read any policy where LRH says to refinance your house, empty one’s bank account or donate thousands of dollars to fund these new buildings.   Is that the answer to expanding Scientology?   I have read LRH policy to the contrary.

What does LRH say about fundraising?  In HCO PL 24 February 1964, Issue II “Org Programming”, LRH states

“If the org slumps…don’t engage in ‘fund-raising’ or ‘selling postcards’ or borrowing money.

Just make more income with Scientology.

It’s a sign of very poor management to seek extraordinary solutions for finance outside Scientology.  It has always failed.

For orgs as for pcs ‘Solve It With Scientology’.

Every time I myself have sought to solve financial or personnel in other ways than Scientology I have lost out. So I can tell you from experience that org solvency lies in More Scientology, not patented combs or fund-raising barbeques.”

We just held the three 2012 Maiden Voyage events at the mission.  In one of the events, we saw the fundraising activities of the OT Ambassadors at the different orgs across the planet raising money for their new Ideal Orgs.  Does this activity agree with the above quote from LRH?

What does LRH say about buildings?   Per HCOPL “The Ideal Org”, “It would be busy looking, with staff in motion, not standing about.  It would be clean and attractive enough not to repel its public”.

 

What else does LRH say about the importance of buildings?

In the LRH lecture “Consideration, mechanics and the theory behind instruction”, July 20, 1954 from the Phoenix Lectures, LRH says “There is no effort on the part of Scientology to own or have the allegiance of billions and billions and billions of people, or to have thousands and thousands of tons of masonry piled up, with Scientology written across the top of it, or to have certain governments of Earth giving their allegiance to Scientology or something of the sort.  This is very, very dull indeed.  The empire of Scientology is 100 percent the empire of wisdom; there is no other empire envisioned”.  How is an individual supposed to afford his own bridge after all of the donations to the IAS and Ideal Orgs?  To me, the church is putting actual Scientology out of reach to the average individual.  Is that LRH’s intentions?From my observation, the church operates 180 degrees in the opposite direction of LRH’s intentions.

Where should the income of an organization come from per LRH?  In HCOB 20 March 1957 Issue I, “Income Sources”, LRH lists the acceptable income sources for an organization.  There are 12 acceptable income sources and an additional 10 items that are the most potent promotion factors.  Among some of the acceptable sources are:

  1. 1.       Processing at the Hubbard Guidance Center (preclears)
  2. 2.      Training at the Academy (students)
  3. 3.      Book sales at 1812* Reception and the HGC (*1812 19th Street NW, Washington, DC- the address of one of the buildings housing the Washing, DC organization at the time this HCO PL was written.
  4. 4.      The sale of tests to the field.

The list continues but there is no mention of fundraisers or just flat out donations from parishioners.

Outpoint:  There has been an exodus from the Church of highly trained Classed auditors as well as veteran Sea Org members.  Some of the most stable terminals in the church have either left or been declared.  Did you know most of the following individuals are now either declared or have left the church?

Kay Rowe – 37 year veteran and former IAS Registrar

Ronnie Miscavige, Snr – David Miscavige’s father

Dror Center – Scientology Mission of Haifa, Israel has left the church.  This mission had the top auditor on the planet for 2 years.

Debbie Cook – former Captain of the FSO for 17 years

Karen de la Carriere/Jentzsch – Flag Service Org (FSO) Class XII auditor and C/S;  L’s auditor CS – one of only 7 Class XII CSes ever made

Mike Rinder – former chief spokesman of the Church of Scientology. He served as Executive Director of the Office of Special Affairs

What does LRH say about SPs?

In the LRH lecture “About Rhodesia”, “You should upgrade your idea of what an SP is. Man, meet one sometime! A real one! A real monster…. Well, in all the time we’ve been around here we only had one SP that I know of. One real SP that was on staff…. And I don’t know of another single SP that we’ve ever had on staff. Isn’t that interesting. You see all these SP orders and so on… Don’t throw it around carelessly, because this is an–a very exaggerated condition, SP.”’ –

Also, Tommy Davis, former spokesman for the Church of Scientology told John Roberts on CNN

“There’s no such thing as disconnection… There isn’t any such policy in the Church dictating who you can and cannot be in communication with, it just doesn’t happen.” LRH cancelled disconnection in HCO PL 15 Nov 1968, Cancellation of Disconnection.

My husband was told by the MAA at the FSO he had to disconnect from his sister because she was married to his brother-in-law who refunded.  My husband did so.   My husband has a very large family and it was communicated to them through this action that “Scientology destroys families”.  Fortunately their relationship has been mended.  But the damage had already been done to his family.

Outpoint:  The new HQS course that was released by the church in roughly 2011 has the Code of a Scientologist from the Creation of Human Ability book.  LRH withdrew that code and reissued it in HCO PL 5 Feb. 1969R, Issue 1 Revised 15 May 1973 Code of a Scientologist. “The Code of a Scientologist as per The Creation of Human Ability is withdrawn.  It is reissued as follows:

1. To keep Scientologists, the public and the press accurately informed concerning Scientology, the world of mental health and society.”   This is vastly different that the COHA code that is in the HQS pack that states: “To hear or speak no word of disparagement to the press, public or preclears concerning any of my fellow Scientologists, our professional organization or those whose names are closely connected with the science”.  In light of recent events in the press, one has to ask if the church did this deliberately.  Also, with the emphasis of how the Basic books are exactly as LRH wanted, how could such an obvious oversight happen?

Saint Hill Size Orgs: You don’t hear them mentioned any more. All we hear about nowadays are “Ideal Orgs,” and the square footage of each.  A Saint Hill Size Org has to meet certain quotas – number of staff, number of students on course, number of auditing hours and so forth. It requires actual work. It requires real, honest expansion. An “Ideal Org” doesn’t require anything but a big, empty building – purchased with your money. The Div. 6 areas have big screen TV’s and fancy displays.  One wonders, are there any orgs in the world that are really, actually, the size of Old Saint Hill that can be measured by statistics that measure true production?

Superpower: Ron’s Journal 30 1978-The Year of Lightning Fast New Tech 17 Dec 1978  The Superpower Rundown was originally announced in 1978. It is described as “A super fantastic, but confidential series of rundowns that can be done on anybody whether Dianetic Clear or not that puts the person into fantastic shape unleashing the super power of a thetan”. Here we are, thirty five years later, and it is still not released. It also states “ Super Power will be delivered at Saint Hills within the next 6 weeks as we are right now super grooming the Super Power Auditors in a special international course”. The only mention of Superpower these days is in the context of donations towards a building in Clearwater. Construction began on this building in 1998, and now, 14 years later, the building is still not open and Super Power has not been released.  Per Wikipedia, it was originally budgeted to cost $24 million, but the cost has more than doubled to an estimated $50 million after repeated redesign of the interior.

The 1991 Book Re-release: With the release of “The Basics,” we are hearing all about how the books are now “fully verified as completely on-Source.” We are hearing how all errors have been verified meticulously against LRH’s original manuscripts to ensure that the books are exactly as LRH intended them to be. However, those of us who can actually remember the past recall that the exact same things were said in 1991 when all of the books were repackaged and re-released.

Here are the words you are supposed to forget were ever issued, from RTC ED 450, 6 September, 1991, “The Scope of Scientology, Auditors Day 1991,” written by David Miscavige:

“For this reason, in April of 1987 we embarked upon a strategy of making all the material of the Scientology Grade Chart standard and available to all. The plan was to:

“ Review all materials against original LRH manuscripts and handle any omissions or alter-is that had crept in through the years either by mistake or at the hand of some SP.”

He goes on to say,

“In this period, from 1987 to present time, the following has been accomplished…

All Dianetics and Scientology books were reviewed, gotten fully on-source and issued. These books were put into a form that could easily be studied and understood by anyone, with definitions of hard-to-find terms right in the book, thus preventing individuals from going by misunderstood. This has been done with all of the over two dozen books on the subject.”

Then, in 2007, there is the release of “The Basics”.  In the Guide to Materials of Dianetics and Scientology, it states, “All of LRH’s books are now available in their complete and pure form, precisely matching LRH’s original manuscripts….In sum, these books are not only beautiful and enduring works of craftsmanship, but – first and foremost – each is a perfect rendition of LRH’s original.

So which is correct, 1987 or 2007?  And ten years from now, will we be told to buy all the books again as “now they are completely on-Source”?

What about the “old” books?

After the release of “The Basics”, the ED at the local mission was instructed to tell the parishioners to gather their books and mail them back to the church in Los Angeles.  Living in Alaska, it wasn’t feasible to do that.  We were then told to “burn the books”.  This didn’t feel right but we complied with this “order”.  We did not apprise all of our parishioners of this fact, only the most dedicated ones as we thought that someone newer in the church probably wouldn’t “understand”.  We had a book burning bon fire at our house in which we burned all of the mission’s books that were now “old” editions of the newly released Basics as well as our own personal books.

This is just a sampling of what I have discovered in my search for answers.  I am only asking you to do your own research.  Please check out these sites:

www.scientology-cult.com  (I never in a million years would thought I would refer someone to a website with this name)

Here is the “policy” that I applied through my search.

LRH is the Source of Dianetics and Scientology and no one else. It is to be read, word cleared and understood by the individual.  Not an interpretation or suggestion from someone else.

1.On Personal Integrity

             WHAT IS TRUE FOR YOU is what you have observed yourself.

             And when you lose that, you have lost everything.

  1. Code of Honor:  Never compromise with your own reality.
  2. Data Series 19 “The Real Why” HCOPL 13 Oct 1970.  “A MERE EXPLANATION = a “Why” given as THE why that does not open the door to any recovery”
  3. Data Series 20 “More Outpoints” HCOPL 26 Nov. 70.  “Contrary Fact:  When two statements are made on one subject which are contrary to each other, we have “contrary facts”.
  4. Look, Don’t Listen.
  5. There is one tech and that is Standard Tech.

I am NOT Anti-LRH or Anti-Scientology.  From my research, I can no longer support what I feel the organization has become under the leadership of David Miscavige.  I have had huge wins in auditing and application of standard Scientology technology.  LRH’s purpose was to bring spiritual freedom to man and to make him more able. I feel that the organization has become one of  “mind control” and I want no part of it.  It HAS become a cult and I feel the church HAS become a suppressive group. The organization has become something else that I do not want any part of.  I want my church back!!!

The vast majority of the Sea Org Execs, Mission, Church and the field trust in LRH as Source and has the honest intention of improving conditions in this world through the standard application of ethics, tech and admin.   They are good, decent people and I will always be their friends and willing to help direct to source (LRH) materials when desired.  Per HCO PL 15 Sept. 1967, “The Supervisor’s Code”, #1.  The Supervisor must never neglect an opportunity to direct a student to the actual source of Scientology data.  I am willing to help anyone who is seeking answers to direct them to the LRH writings on the subject when able.

I am joining the group of individuals who follow LRH and insist upon “Keeping Scientology Working”.  The vast majority of the “Independents” are in accord with the above, therefore I consider them my friends and will be joining their movement.

My Doubt Formula Announcement by Forrest Crane

I’m joining the side that will KSW. This was not a Doubt Formula on Scientology. This was a Doubt Formula on the Church of Scientology.   I will remain loyal to Standard Tech. Standard Tech is so powerful it still works even when fantastically alter-ised but when unalter-ised it’s priceless.

Back in 1989 I did lower conditions and I decided that my friends were those who would Keep Scientology Working.  I still have that write up. At that time, I was only getting a small inkling of some that wouldn’t KSW.  Since then I have observed just how insane a group will go in accepting unworkable “technology.” “By actual record the percentages are about twenty to 100,000 that a group of human beings will dream up bad technology to destroy good technology.” LRH.   Back then I never thought that I couldn’t just give another Scientologist the red on white, the LRH, and not have it complied with and I never dreamt that I couldn’t write up an Alter-is Report to RTC, Snr C/S Int Off, Keeper of the Tech, etc. and not have the red on white complied with. I have been thoroughly disabused of that idea, it is shocking. Everything I have witnessed is right there in KSW #1.

HCO PL 31 MAY 1968 SCIENTOLOGY TECHNOLOGY

There is one Tech and that is Standard Tech.  Unfortunately there is other tech around.  This other tech is a liability.  Other tech is defined as any tech which is not Standard Tech.”

One hardly hears of Standard Tech anymore.   We now have Golden Age of Tech, GAT, soon to be GAT II. Doing the GAT drills, I encountered many violations in Standard Tech and wrote up my KRs to RTRC per the instructions and also turned them in to Ethics as Technical Alter-is Reports per policy. Some of this alteration of the tech was quite serious, not minor tech points. This I did push to get hammered out of existence which only led me into being an ethics particle.

Over my history, I have written many Technical Alter-is Report on the subject of missed withholds. The subject of missed withholds is just about the most important subject there is in Scientology. Well, pcs have vanished, Missions have vanished. Overts, out-int, M-Us and PTS can all cause blows (and per HCOB BLOW-OFFS, things can be so bad one has no choice but to blow) but ONLY the MWH can make one vanish.

I’ve written this up many times only to be sent to ethics, dead filed, kicked out and it has cost me I don’t know how many 10s of thousands of dollars.  I’m done M-9ing HCOB Auditing By List. I’ve lost track how many times I’ve had to M-9 it, M-2 it, M-4s, clay demos, 13 intensives of Sec Checks, you name it, Comm Ev (my request), Court of Ethics, B of I’s.  And “Do NOT change the question” still reads the same to me as it did the very first time I read it.

So, if one gets himself ‘Dead Filed’, how do you handle that?  Well, look it up, one has to get himself to the state of Clear.  What do you do if you’re already Clear?  Well, then it’s anyone’s arbitrary. I had to get Sec Checked for 13 intensives, there went my OT V.  I was even given the “Truth R/D” and never in my life have I ever falsely vilified a well intentioned person.  In my letter I asked, ‘are you or are you not going to hammer out of existence the incorrect technology?’ When I found out I was Dead Filed, my meter was at Gold for certification.  They would not return it to me, my property.  The ED at the Mission informed me she was told that I sounded like a ‘Freezoner’. I had never heard of it before!  What is that?  And my last communication to the MAA at AOLA was, ‘I’m in need of some answers’, which resulted in my search for answers, taking off the blinders and willing to communicate with anyone or anything and boy, did I get answers!

I believe it was in 2003, I went to do the new PRoTRs course at Flag.  I wrote a KR to an RTC Rep on the violations of HCOB Auditing By Lists.  I was taken off my TRs course and sent to cramming and again had to M-9 Auditing By Lists. From there I was sent to Ethics to be informed that I had to disconnect from my sister as she was A-J and I had to leave Flag.  The policy that covers this is HCO PL 27 Oct 64R, which says you cut communication with an A to J till they have a change of heart.  This is good Church policy, but to apply it to a brother and a sister is destructive.  I left and drove to my mother’s house in Denver for a visit. My sister calls my mother every night, so when she called, my mother told my sister that I was there. Of course she wants to talk with me. I take the phone and tell my sister I’m unable to talk with her because of her relation to the Church. This hurt my sister and my mother. It was over a year before I realized no one or any organization had the right to tell me who I could or couldn’t communicate with.  Ref: HCOB 2 May 85, Responsibility, Definition Of.

But the crime had already been committed. So I wrote an apology letter to my sister begging her for forgiveness. I also stated that that was not Scientology, but was Church Executives who didn’t understand Scientology.  But the damage had already been done, it has gone through my family, and both my brother and sister have large families, that Scientology destroys families.

This idea of Scientology destroys families is widespread throughout our society due to the many forced disconnections, which has been cancelled since 1968, Reform Code, Admin Dict. HCO POLICY LETTER OF 15 NOVEMBER 1968 CANCELLATION OF DISCONNECTION

The PR on the Church is the worst in history. You won’t know that unless you look.

The Classification Chart And Auditing, 26 Jul 66, BC Lecture #434

Pg. 245 “What is standard technology? Standard technology is contained in HCOBs. It actually isn’t contained in any of the books of Dianetics and Scientology. Did you ever realize that?  Modern technology is not contained in any of the hardcover books, or any of the other books.  It’s contained in HCOBs, Hubbard Communications Office Bulletins, and they just run off one after the other. And one of these fine days I suppose we will roll up our sleeves and publish them all in consecutive order, all corrected so that nothing ever corrects anything in the bulletins and make it very, very easy. But we will have to put them probably in about seven or eight or ten different volumes, because there are quite a few of them. But that’s standard technology.  They’re on white paper printed with red ink. If I haven’t signed it, it isn’t true.  And that’s standard technology.

Now, because we developed something later, we didn’t lose the standard technology of something earlier. The main bugbear of the person studying Scientology was that he – the bugbear was his, not mine – was that he conceived, every time he read something new, that that wiped out all the old.  And this concept was brought about on just this one point” that he didn’t understand the old that he had read, so he didn’t realize that it integrated with the new which had just been issued. And at no time, really, in HCOBs, has the new wiped out the old. There are very, very few corrections.”

RON’S JOURNAL 30, 1978 – THE YEAR OF LIGHTNING FAST NEW TECH

In this, LRH states Super Power will be released within the next 6 weeks at St. Hills.  In it he lays out the upper bridge stating:  “NED for OTs can be given any time after OT III and before OT VIII and is a prerequisite for OT VIII.” But there’s all the original OT levels. The original OT levels aren’t delivered anymore.  Can one make it to Clear without his Grades?  Can one make it to OT without his Pre-OT levels?  Some do, few can.

HCOB 23 DEC 82 C/S SERIES 73RB THE NO-INTERFERENCE AREA CLARIFIED AND RE-ENFORCED.  Have you seen the ‘Greg & Debra Barnes’ video on YouTube? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n-Sh3hLn6PM.  Oh my.

CL XIIs, CL VIIIs, Top Exec’s, Whistleblowers, and other Scientologists have been getting Declared. The Church has been doing everything in their power to discredit them for whistle-blowing as they will do with me.  They can take every crime and overt that I have ever committed, confessed to in or out of session, as they do anyway, and publish them in the Anchorage Daily News for all to see. I couldn’t care less. I’d even get a good laugh out of some of them.  Anyone thinking less of me has far worse things that they are hiding.

A 1967 filmed interview with LRH: “A suppressive person isn’t critical, a suppressive person is a person who denies the rights of others.”

Even though LRH cancelled ‘disconnection’ back in 1968, the Church has re-instituted the practice of enforced disconnection, no longer a personal decision. I’ve seen destroyed families, destroyed marriages, destroyed businesses, destroyed friendships.  I’ve had my right to communicate, my right to property, my right to practice denied by the Church. And Debbie Cook was driven into the Hole (which is a double wide trailer at Int Base).  It is now part of Court Records in San Antonio, under oath with penalty of perjury that Debbie Cook was Kidnapped, Beaten, Tortured and Degraded. Other Scientologists were present as witnesses of the abuses. And of course, the Church says they are all bitter defrocked apostates corroborating their lying. The Church dropped their charges and would not let the Court continue. No libel and slander suit was filed. And where are the other Int Executives?  One individual suggested  they’re off doing OT IX & X. Other witnesses say otherwise.

Here’s notice to me from a friend:

Subject: Joining Denver Org staff

Hello Forrest,

As the subject line suggests, I am joining Org staff. As you might guess, I have to drop my connection with you because of some declare.

I wish you all the best, health and happiness, and success in the mining business.

Above all, have fun,

Name

My wife checked on my SP Declare with Denver’s Dir I&R and the DSA who had no record of my Declare.  So I emailed my friend to get a copy of my Declare and he said he was never shown the SP Declare.  He stated the SO Recruiters were in Denver manning up the Denver Org.  They verbally told him 2 CL VIIIs he was connected to were Declared and I was one of them. I have not seen my Declare order nor have I been Comm Ev’d. And as it turned out, he never joined staff in Denver. What he was doing at the time was the greater good.

SUPPRESSIVES AND GAE, 2 Aug 66 BC Lecture #436, Pg 23: “He has other characteristics which are quite marked, and it’s really an interesting bread of cat. If you ever got him auditing, he will only be happy or satisfied if his preclear gets worse.  And he’s only sad when the pc gets better. And that characteristic was what spotted us suppressives, year and years and years ago.”

My wife and I have been following the stats of Classed Auditors made and Releases and Clears made in various Orgs and to our surprise, none to few are being produced.  In 2010, my wife and I even walked into the Atlanta Org and Nashville Ideal Org and found both to be empty of public. My last Ethics handling was at AOLA in 2009.  I was sent to do a clay demo in the practical course room. On one occasion, I was the only one there.  On another occasion which was a Saturday, there was only one other student from San Francisco. I asked him why he wasn’t doing his Solo I at his Org. He replied he gets better service at AO. He had the Sup to himself and he was also his coach. Well trained Auditors and satisfied pcs are the product of orgs and they’re just not being made or just too few being made. If you reward a down stat you get a down stat.

My wife & I are Patrons of the IAS, even though this practice is forbidden by LRH, (LRH built St. Hill by exchanging a valuable service with the public), we’ve put in well over $45,000 to the IAS and are paying on that debt. I look back and wonder, ‘wouldn’t it had been better if we had given that money to the Church and gotten Susan onto her OT VI & VII, she could have been through OT VIII by now. I think all these programs the IAS is sponsoring are good programs and it’s the duty of Int management to fund these programs. And there would be more than enough to fund these programs provided the Church delivered Standard Tech and was On-Source, In-Ethics, In-Tech and On-Policy. We take responsibility for it as we walked into it but I wondered, how did they do it? The IAS has a few techniques, here’s one of them:

Psychosomatic: It’s Meaning in Scientology 30 Jul 64 BC Lecture #395

Pg. 68  Now, if you hit somebody with enough bad news – this is your important technical datum – if you hit somebody with enough bad news, force or duress, you can make them give you something. That happens to be a mental mechanism. Nobody ever really looks at this as a mental mechanism, but it is a mental mechanism. That’s all it is. If you hit somebody hard enough – and that would mean a blow or bad news, or you know, a blow in the field of mass and bad news in the field of significance – if you hit somebody hard enough, you can make him give you something. Blackmail is based on this. Government is based on this. Taxation is based on this.

Now, so these things can be manipulated from the other side, too. But this is a mental law – this is a mental law you should pay some attention to, because it’s the basic law which is used usually in government, extortion, blackmail, medicine, any of these things.

My wife & I will continue our spiritual journey using Scientology. I will continue to audit and I do have some VVIPs on my lineup as well as some very good friends.

Psychosomatic: It’s Meaning in Scientology, 30 Jul 64, BC Lecture #395, Pg. 66 “Now, the right to practice is based upon the ability to do. And if you ever permit that to be dropped out of Scientology, you will have a great deal of trouble from thereon. The ability to do regulates the right to practice. That’s open and shut.”

Iknow of many more Gross Auditing Errors, however the above is enough to get my point across.

Best to all,

Forrest Crane

A Summary of Study 4 Aug 64 BC Lecture #396

Pg. 88.  “Now, you can err to the degree that you’re giving him a subject which he’s never going to do. Now, let’s take it over into Scientology. You’re giving him all the data necessary to run Standard Operating Procedure of July, Elizabeth, New Jersey and so forth. And the mistake is to give him all of it. He’s never going to use it.

All you want to know, all you want to give him is enough so he can identify it. If he collides with this thing again, he said, “Hey, that’s Standard Operating Procedure”, you know, “back there, Elizabeth”. “Early days, Elizabeth”, is about all you want to get through there. Have some dim idea where this thing fits, you see. He’s not going to do it. So therefore, if he’s not going to do it, you’ve got to strip the significance off of it. You got the idea? That’s the way these are kept in balance. If the guy isn’t going to do it, take the significance off of it. See, you’ve got to keep these things in balance. If he’s going to do it, pour it to him, man!”

My personal advice, KNOW THE TECH, skip the basics and get onto your academy levels. You’ll have plenty of time to read books if you haven’t already.

How Miscavige Plans to “Clear the Planet”

by Mike Rinder

Here is the latest poster put out by the RCS (copyrighted to CSI who are apparently now the main fundraisers for the IAS).

It consists entirely of a quote from Chairman Mao that perhaps is more candid than he intended.  He clearly delineates HIS strategy for planetary clearing. It doesn’t involve training or auditing or Grade Charts or anything so messy and difficult that would require actual DELIVERY.

The “IAS” is going to “Clear The Planet” — hip hip hooray for the IAS. Hip hip hooray for “Chairman of the Bored” of Scientology Inc. (inclusive of the IAS and  every other entity that is part of the big ball of wax that rolls around under his thumb like an oversized booger).

Remember the days when Scientology was about what L. Ron Hubbard said? And even later when Miscavige at least pretended that was the case?

Well, here it is in big, bold, colorful letters: the pretense has dropped and the thin veneer of the facade has come down (to paraphrase Dan Sherman).

Love And Respect For Family

Check out this article on one of the fastest growing religions in America:

http://news.yahoo.com/amish-population-booms-us-201114305.html

The Amish don’t spend millions each year to promote themselves.

The Amish don’t build gaudy, multi-million dollar shrines to themselves with state-of-the-art a/v gadgets to cajole people in.

The Amish don’t proselytize at all.

Apparently, the growth of the Amish is simply due to their nurturing and respect for their families and decent treatment of their own.

Imagine that.

That imagining reminded me of the Village Voice interview with Mimi Faust of the reality show Love and Hip Hop Atlanta.  She recounted her childhood when her mother abandoned her for Scientology Inc.’s para-military priesthood (the Sea Organization).   It reminded particularly of this bit of street-wise wisdom that she imparted:

I asked Mimi what she thinks of Scientology today. She didn’t want to badmouth it, and assumed that some people find something positive in it. But she pointed out that it was her understanding Scientology wants to unite people. “Well, how are you going to keep the world together if you can’t keep your family together?” Mimi’s interview at VV

The Luglis Reveal Truth in Italy

A rather significant front-page article ran this week in a major Italian newspaper.   One of its subjects, Renata Lugli, wrote a short introduction to the piece.   It precedes the article below.

Anyone that studied and understood the materiel contained in the PTS SP Course , knows that suppression decreases when the person can do something about it.

If I have to choose from the many suppressions that I received from David Miscavige, thanks to his deadly tentacles of his “church”, the one that was most damaging was the violent intrusion in the very personal matters that relate to my family .

No church, that can call itself a church, can assume this right. But this conduct has been pursued by the use of third parties with a vicious ability to turn theta truth into ENtheta perversions.

The effect that David Miscavige wanted to create in doing that was to instill in my son Flavio, a Flag Staff, an unnatural sense of hatred toward me, with the purpose of convincing him to work against me and my family by having him perform the ungrateful task of spying on us and report to OSA.

The intention of David Miscavige and his minion in OSA was to “punish” me and my husband because we did not wanted to disconnect from the other son of ours Tiziano, that left the Corporate Scientology . Even after Marion Pow and Mike Sutter (RTC/OSA mission) had come to Brescia and stayed for one week to convince us to disconnect from Tiziano and after that our son Flavio was for hours on the phone trying to convince us to do the same. The famous or better infamous policy of Disconnection!

For two long years I had to bear this suppression, till the case of Karen De La Carriere/Alexander Jentzch made it explodeIt was exactly then that I took a firm decision: it is our duty to make the Italian public aware of what David Miscavige and his minions are doing.

And by “chance” after a week I met with the news reporter Leonardo Piccini that works for LIBERO and thanks to his interest in the matter we have been able to send back the flow to David Miscavige & Co. to balance the flow we as a family received from them.

What was Miscavige expecting when he designed all of his plan against my family? That a mother would let someone steal her son and would just take the violence and abuse of that and stay silent? Just look at someone destroying the most precious things that one has:, his/her family, and just sit in a corner like a beaten dog and do nothing?

David Miscavige does not have the faintest idea to which extent a mother will go.

He can possibly stop the President of The United States with his lobbying, but he will not stop a mother!

I want to cite to you a sentence taken from a song that Lisa Marie Presley just wrote, and this goes to David Miscavige:

“You haven’t seen nothing yet!”

You should have known that you better not touch a family, and you should have learned this lesson from Sun-Tzu:

There are roads one does not follow.There are armies one does not strike.There are cities one does not attack.There are grounds one does not contest.There are commands of the sovereign one does not accept.

-Renata Lugli

The Exposure of The Designer Lugli

‘I WAS ONE OF THE BOSSES OF SCIENTOLOGY AND NOW I TELL YOU THE  TRUTH ABOUT THE CULT’

Written by LEONARDO PICCINI

The accusations do not come from a nobody, but from a major figure in Scientology, who starting from 1974 has done all of the awareness steps required to reach the top called OT VIII. This person is Claudio Lugli. He is a fashion designer.

§§§§§§§

THE PERSONAL STORY

I Will Explain What Kind Of A Nightmare Scientology Is

The Fashion Designer Claudio Lugli has been for years a leader in the Church founded by Hubbard. Since he and his wife got out: ‘They take away from you your money and your dignity. They even took a son from us!

…. He is a fashion creator, dressed people like Miles Davis, Pino Daniele or movie stars like John Travolta, and Chick Corea, but also the charismatic leader of the church founded by Hubbard, David Miscavige.

We meet in a luxurious loft in Brescia, and words flow like a river: “Me, my wife Renata and our two sons Flavio and Tiziano have been following Scientology since ever. We have been amongst the pioneers and the founding members of the Church of Hubbard in Italy, and we took great care in expanding and financing its operations. But today we decided to end with the Miscavige Organization”

“It has not been an easy decision, because it is never easy to find out a truth that makes vanish, just in one shot, 36 years of dedication and support to values that have been trampled on used just to support greed and personal interests.”

Because his majesty David Miscavige, lives the high life, the thousands of Scientologists that are still part of his cult  are totally unaware of this.

Renata Lugli is even more direct: “We found out that through the years a lot of things changed and that ‘Church Management’ betrayed the faith and the ideals in which we believed in”

To follow the story has been necessary to address issue that every Scientologist has at heart and discuss of what is happening in Hemet, California, the International Base where David Miscavige lives.

“For us is not easy to talk” – says Renata – “because one of our sons Flavio , a 35 years old boy, is still inside what I define as the MISCAVIGE CORPORATE Scientology. He lives in Clearwater Florida, north of Tampa, and it is 15 years that he is working as an auditor in the Sea Org, the advanced organization of Scientology. People there are made to work even 20 hours a day, sleep in a modest room and have a salary of $ 20 a week. But when you talk about Miscavige … things change. A friend of ours worked directly under him in the “Special Personal Service Unit”. This unit is reserved only for Miscavige and his wife. While other staff members almost starve he spends more than a  $1,000 just on food per week”

Miscavige and his wife have one Chef full time working for them plus an assistant Chef and several stewards and butlers. The head of Scientology eats every two hours, and he follows a specific diet, a low fat diet.

“Naturally all the food must be extremely fresh and of the best quality available. And for lunch and dinner Miscavige must have two different choices always available to him , and this means a 4 full course menu for two different people every single day”

Salmon for Miscavige comes fresh from the East Coast of USA or Canada, but the lamb must be only the one coming from New Zealand that has been fed by a special kind of corn. And steaks?  Everything absolutely biological, like filet mignon first quality.

“When Miscavige celebrate his birthday or when he is having guest of the caliber of Tom Cruise  – (The actor has been a Scientologist since years now-)  Claudio lugli says – everything becomes even more  fancy and extravagant: preparations began even 3 or 4 days ahead and servants have to follow a special “wish list” . And if what the master Chef created is not considered good enough, then, orders are placed in the best and most fancy restaurants available, and there is no limit, because the boss needs to be satisfied.  Foie Gras and truffle are the norm.”

And let’s talk about his residence:

“It is comparable to royalty, things not even imaginable to the Sea Org rank and file or the regular Scientologist.”

Miscavige owns fabulous buildings in Gilman Hot Spring, in Los Angeles and at Flag. In England he even has a castle at his disposal.

“Everything has been designed and custom made for him, only the very best and state of the art is used furniture wise”

Miscavige has a fleet of cars that only international collectors normally have, and also a large number of bikes and:
“If there is anything expensive that he does not own yet , there is no problem, it will be put in the next birthday or Christmas wish list “

Mrs Renata adds: “Per what Mr Hubbard wrote, money donated by parishioners had to be used to disseminate Scientology, they have never been intended to make live a life of luxury to somebody at the helm of the church. Hubbard never lived a kind of life like that, with such a flaunted style of life like Miscavige does, and this is also another proof of how much the original ideals of Scientology have been betrayed.”

And Mr Lugli adds:

“Miscavige invented a new, perverted mechanism to take money from the parishioners: the so called “Ideal Orgs”. I saw with my very eyes, in Padova at an event, a lady going up on stage and announce to a crowd of Scientologist that she would donate the three apartments she had just got as an inheritance fron her parents to the “Ideal Org Project”, the Scientologist were in ecstasy.

And what can we say about Mr Richie Acunto, he was rewarded as “Diamond Meritorious” because he had donated something like 10 million dollars to the “Ideal Org”! Richie was a good friend of Tiziano, my son, he married Tiziano and Jamie, but the point is that part of the money he had donated have been used to hire and pay something like 50 Private Investigators that for MONTHS besieged my son house in Hollywood because he had left the Church. Richie Acunto shortly after went bankrupt with his company the “Survival Insurance”, a huge insurance company, but this was of no interest to Miscavige. He has a very big team of people that specialize in fund raising, they even go to the parishioner house in the middle of the night and force him to pay some money.

It looks like that a parallel organization named IAS has accumulated funds in the order of a billion dollars.

But Miscavige’s perversion knows no boundaries: like a new born Caligula, that became famous because he appointed his horse as Senator, so Miscavige decided “to put the rank bars” to his dog and appointed the dog Captain. And if the dog barks at you that’s a sign that you “are out ethics” and so you will be punished.

“Ethics” in Scientology is a word that comes up continuously.

“If you are there you are like a prisoner in the STASI” – says Renata – “Things keep getting worse and worse, sons and daughter are estranged from their families, and they can keep just casual contact by phone with their parents or family members, and there is always somebody there listening and monitoring their calls.  You have to report each other to the “Ethics Officer”., he is the person that has to know everything so that things run smoothly without ANY external influence. And if your family thinks differently, or worse get out of the Church, they are considered immediately “apostate”, and barred for ever.” Renata keeps on telling me: “One week ago a boy that had just turned 27, his name is Alexander, died in very obscure circumstances. His father is Heber Jentzch, the President of The Church of Scientology International, but his mother, one of the highest trained auditor on the planet, and directly trained by Hubbard, was not allowed to see her dead son. The Church had imposed to Alexander not to have any contact whatsoever with his mother . This type of behavior is called “DISCONNECTION”, and now this practice became very usual and families are thrown in despair because of it.

But I would have never thought that this practice could go beyond death! That situation troubled me very much, because I have a son too that disconnected from us, two years ago, when we decided to leave Scientology.”

“In Scientology, a follower can be punished” her husband says- “they use what they call the RPF, Rehabilitation Project Force; it is in essence like forced labor, and you have to clean toilets, paint a wall, and various menial jobs for 8 hours a day, plus 4 hours you have to study, And this goes on for years, for some even more than 10 years. And what about THE HOLE ? That’s a place where staff members are kept against their will for weeks and weeks, intimidated and prisoners, and they have to sleep on the floor and eat some slop – armed guards are always present , movement sensor are in place, and doors are locked. Plus there is the constant threat of physical violence, and people in the HOLE are subjected to physical and mental degradation of the worst kind.”

MISCAVIGE IS ACCUSED BY EX MEMBERS IN USA

IN THE USA THE SUPREME LEADER BEATS HIS JUNIORS .

ONE OF THEM WAS TREATED LIKE A PUNCHING BALL

Scientology in the USA is under a very serious schism problem. Some ex members are giving unprecedented accounts of information on what happened at the highest levels of their organization.

Those are statements that are coming from the highest ranks and people broke the conspiracy of silence and started giving interviews to the media.

People like Tom De Vocht that was managing for years the “Headquarters” of the Church in Clearwater – Or Amy Scobee, that was managing the network dedicated to all the celebrities in Scientology – a key figure that had daily contact with people of the caliber of John Travolta or Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes or the like. And even more, top managers like Marty Rathbun that worked almost his entire life together with David Miscavige, as second in command, handling legal affairs.

Or Mike Rinder  for 20 years the head of OSA the Office of Special Affarirs: they left Scientology and decided to give very detailed and strong interviews like the one they all gave to the St. Petersburg Times, in where they reveal the methods that David Miscavige used to keep his power.

Miscavige in 1986 became the undisputed leader of Scientology. Miscavige is 49 and is described by many as being very charismatic.

Many call him just COB, because he is the Chairman of The Board – basically the owner of the Church now, Church that was founded back in 1954 .

The ex members are accusing Miscavige of physical violence , a reality that is permeating the whole of Scientology. Mike Rinder even said that: “I have been beaten more than 50 times by Miscavige”. Rathbun, Rinder, De Vocht they also admit of beatings they did and they did it to “show the boss of what they were of “.

De Vocht says that there is no particular reason why people are beaten or abused by Miscavige: “Miscavige goes crazy for nothing, it is enough that what you say to him something that is not what he was expecting from you. And it could be something that happens, just for his whim – it can be the way you looked at him, or because you were too slow in answering his questions.”

There is a list of people that have been abused and Rathbun and Rinder made this list public in interviews:

Marc Yager: “Has been beaten about 20 times, he was treated like a punching bag”

Guillame Lesevre, about ten times, and Ray Mithoff was regularly beaten very violently on the head and strangled or thrown on the ground – per what Rathbun said.

Rathbun also says that Mike Rinder has been beaten at least a dozen times.

For Rinder: “Was not much the physical pain, but was the humiliation . Because you cannot defend yourself, you cannot raise your hands against the boss.”

But their accusations go beyond that and they say: “ Staff are disciplined with a justice system that include “public” confessions of your sins and the isolation of the sinner and he/she is sentenced to manual forced labor.”

Those are all very heavy accusations and more: “The Church has covered the Lisa McPherson death case. They made a mess trying to take care of her , but Lisa Mc Pherson died after was kept isolated for 17 days at the Fort Harrison Hotel in Clearwater.”

Rathbun was in charge of handling the resulting mess media wise, and he admits to: “I ordered the destructions of incriminating proofs and documents.”

Scientology And Saving The World

In 1950 L. Ron Hubbard burst onto the scene tackling the attainment of the ends of Eastern spiritualism with the practicality mindset of Western materialism.   He developed two related subjects toward that end, Dianetics, and its outgrowth, Scientology.  Within two to three years he had described in pratical English terms having seen the universal truths as outlined in the Vedas and in the Tao Te Ching.  He also described modern exercises that he discovered and developed to bring others to that experience.  He spent the rest of his life attempting to undercut the route so that virtually anyone from any station in life or of whatever educational background could traverse it.  In that effort to reach and effect all, matters eventually became complicated.  An insidious parallel to helping and saving all peoples of earth evolved throughout Scientology writings.  That is, the stress became not so much to make Scientology accessible to everybody as much as to make Scientology mandatory for everyone.  This approach led to a type of dual personality for the subject.  On the one hand it intended to release an individual from the restraints of life and to restore freedom of choice.  On the other hand, it usurped freedom of choice and imposed restraints in the attempt to get every person there.

Control and restraint themes developed throughout Scientology writings.  It was justified by the repeated idea that Dianetics and Scientology contain the answers to every problem and every question that every person ever faced; with the repeated emphatic idea that no one else has anything of use to contribute to those answers.  The theme was evident in a substantial body of proselytization and ethics policy that justified any means necessary to leading the clueless to the only show in town. These policies dedicatedly applied wound up appealing to a broad spectrum of people as intended.  That included people who wanted to communicate better, to find their sanity, to improve memory, to sell more, to be more successful, to have more meaningful relationships, to make more money, to dominate and control others, to reach higher states of spiritual awareness, to be more powerful, to get off drugs, to learn how to study, and even to reach immortality.  In promoting to all those looking for these answers and more, and representing to those publics that those wants were all that Scientology was interested in helping them with, all the while intending and organizing to direct such people toward ultimately making Scientology the answer to everything weaved a strain of fraud into the woof and warp of its organizations.

Fraud requires as its central element the making of a misrepresentation that the communicator knows is false.   In the case of Scientology, the recurrent, systemic knowing lie has nothing to do with the lack of efficacy of Scientology itself. When a Scientologist tells somebody that Scientology contains the answer to his problem, as well as every answer to every problem that person will ever face, that Scientologist believes that representation implicitly. The knowing misrepresentation that virtually every Scientologist is guilty of making over and over again is that whatever particular problem a seeker wants solved is the only problem the Scientology organization is interested in solving.  In fact, Scientology scripture very methodically details how to use the solving of a particular problem as the bait to be switched toward creating a new bigger problem for the bait biter to pursue.  Scientologists will vehemently protest my use of words such as “misrepresentation” and “fraud.”   But, the fact of the matter is that many of the significant problems that have nagged or lessened the reach of Scientology organizations stemmed from this inculcated lie.

This is not to say that Scientology does not contain the tools to solve every problem every person faces.  A trained Scientologist is well equipped to solve a wide variety of human problems.   In fact, selflessly and ethically practiced Scientology does wonders in putting a person into a position where he or she is well equipped to resolve any problem he or she may encounter.  However, in carrying out Scientology policy that requires everlasting steadfast loyalty and fealty to the organization, the organization is hard-wired to ensure a person never believes he or she is so equipped. It is quite a trick.  In order to enforce that fealty and loyalty – and its concomitant, escalating contributions -there must always be something more wrong with the person being handled. And so, all too often a fellow works his way up the Scientology gradients of enlightenment for decades, spending hundreds of thousands of dollars in the pursuit of the promised state of ‘cause over life.’   In virtually every case the fellow winds up being convinced to spend several tens or hundreds of thousands more to find out and solve why he never made the vaunted state of ‘cause over life.’

Again, this is not to say that the methods of Scientology cannot produce such a state.  It is to say that the effectiveness of Scientology is never realized because of the original, well-embedded lie that Scientology organizations are not interested in anything other than providing help with whatever is troubling the person who reaches for help.  Intead, the organzations are constructed on the principle that once a person checks in, he or she never checks out.  Individuals connected to Scientology organizations are programmed to find another problem to solve for the seeker.  If they cannot find one, they manufacture it. Let’s examine more closely how it works in practice.

Let us say that a fellow wants to overcome problems with communication.   Scientology offers and delivers a course on communication that thousands have extolled the virtues of.  However, Scientology Inc. staff are bound by policy that prohibits the leaving of good enough alone.  It penalizes staff who fail to immediately ‘re-sign’ anyone who successfully completes a course.   While the course might be a complete success in the eyes of the person who took it, it is an utter failure as far the organization is concerned if that same person does not immediately open his wallet and lay down more money for more expensive courses or pricey personalized counseling.  Again, that is not to say that the expensive courses and counseling are not worthy.  It is to say that Scientology organizations are prohibited by their scripture from ever leaving good enough alone.  They operate on policy that uses Scientology’s knowledge of the mind to manipulate all those who complete course or counseling services to re-sign for more expensive future services.

Scientologists are blind to the bait and switch nature of their own day to day operations for a couple reasons.  First, they justify the hustle by the efficacious results that Scientology services can and do deliver.  Second, that justification is reinforced and complicated by a steady indoctrination into the idea that mankind is doomed, non-Scientologists are worse than aimless, and the only answers to everything – including immortality – are covered only in Scientology.

It might be that Scientology’s greatest sin stems from its greatest original virtue.  It might be that the policy discussed herein was initially developed out of an abiding, strong urge to salvage humankind.  However, like every movement throughout humankind’s history that has begun perpetrating harm once it is convinced it is the only one capable of ‘saving the world’, organized Scientology seems to have perfected the art of ‘controlling’ in the name of ‘freeing.’

This state of affairs led to my posing the question, ‘is organized religion an oxymoron?’

Being someone who finds tremendous value in the Buddha’s philosophy of the Great Middle Path, and L. Ron Hubbard’s use of infinity logic (there are no absolutes but instead an infinity of gradients at either side of 0 on any scale), I am interested in hearing peoples’ views as to the answer to the question posed.

UPDATE:

As a couple at least have challenged me to show any evidence whatsoever that Scientology Policy encourages bait and switch trickery, I picked up the 1140 page policy volume Scientology on sales and within a couple minutes found the two exerpts below.  The first is from Policy Letter entitled HANDLING THE PUBLIC INDIVIDUAL:
Example: Miss N has heard of processing.  She wants some.  She never did DECIDE to want some.  She just wants some. Now to ask her to decide ANYTHING about it blunts that purpose.  It is a thin purpose.  It quivers.  Don’t ask her does she want a book or want training or want a pin or want anything else. Say only, ‘Ah. You want processing.  That’s a good thing to want.  Be here Monday and bring ________ funds.’  That’s all. If she says timidly, “I only have _____ funds,” say, “Good. Bring them; you can owe the rest.  Be here on Monday.  In short MAKE Miss N RIGHT for WANTING, thus intensifying the want.  Make her RIGHT when she talks about money.  Then, being right she CAN come in Monday.  Simple.  Chances are, even if she works, she’ll still come in.  When she comes in she says, ‘I’m Miss N.  I’m here for my processing.’  Reception MUST say, “Ah.  You’re Miss N. Good. There’s the Accounts widow.  Sign up there.’ The Accounts says, ‘Here’s the slip.  Sign here.  Take the slip to Room _____.’  Reception says, ‘This way Miss N.’  Estimations says, “let me have your Accounts receipt.  Good.  That’s fine. Have you been processed before?  No?  Well, you soon will be.  This way please.  Your auditor is waiting.” The auditor says, “Over here, please,’ adjusts the pc’s chairs, etc., and sits down and says, “Start of session.”  At its end he says, ‘Be in this room at _______’ for Miss N’s next.  And so on.  When she gets her grade certificate she’s told, ‘That means you’re a Grade I preclear.  Get the book ____________down in Reception.  It will tell you all about Grade II.’  Miss N throughout is NEVER anything but 8-Ced. The general promotion told her what to want by saying she could HAVE it.  She expresses the want.  The org people say, “That’s a good thing to want.  You can have it.  And gives it to her.  That’s all. Just as you’d never ask a pc which command he wanted, you never as the public individual to decide.  You can teach them anything, particularly the truth.  But never ask them to decide.  By processing up the grades, this person will soon begin to see and be there and understand and decide.  And she’ll surely decide she’s a Scientologist, as it’s true all the way!’
Now, combine that with HCOPL 28 DECEMBER 1978 USE OF BIG LEAGUE SALES:
The caper is to assume the individual has already chosen to buy a specific item and then to get him to make some minor choice about it which involves him and makes him assume he has decided to purchase it.  It is a technique to bypass a large decision.  EXAMPLE: Person hasn’t decided to have processing, salesman ignores that and asks him if he wants his auditing afternoons or evenings.  The guy says evenings and forgets to notice he hasn’t decided to be processed in the first place.

The IAS Fraud Rolls On

See the latest email promotion from the IAS (International Association of Scientologists):

From: IAS Administrations <desiree@iasmembership.org> Date: August 14, 2012 12:33:22 AM EDT To:############ Subject: RECORD NUMBERS OF PEOPLE VISIT SCIENTOLOGY.ORG WEEKLY

RECORD NUMBERS OF PEOPLE VISIT SCIENTOLOGY.ORG WEEKLY

The biggest dissemination campaign in Scientology history is funded by IAS grants. Internet ads run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. No matter where a person lives, or what time zone he is in, he can click on an ad and go directly to scientology.org and learn about our religion. He can also meet Scientologists in any of hundreds of video interviews, tour a Church of Scientology, and be introduced to LRH in the online chronology of his life. Even more, visitors can learn to apply Scientology themselves through the Tools for Life courses available free online.

Up to a million people a week visit scientology.org which is translated into 16 languages, from Chinese to Norwegian and from Portuguese to Russian.

People come to the site from nearly every country of Earth and stay to find out about Scientology. Visitors to the Scientology site far exceed the industry average both in terms of the amount of time they spend there and the number of pages of material they view…

Of course it goes on to say that the above is what one’s donations to IAS buy and demands…you guessed it, more money.

But wait a second.  Review the graph below from Alexa blog web monitoring service for ‘reach’ of the Scientology.org site.

The one week spike at the beginning of July does represent somewhere in the neighborhood of a million hits.  Once, ever, they had about a million hits in a week.   Remember what week that was?   TomKat divorce viral madness week.  I know because we got over 750,000 hits on this site that same week.   As you can see from their graph, the rest of the weeks their hits are in a comparatively miniscule range – as it has been for years.

Now, let’s take up their next claim:  the Scientology site far exceeds the industry average … in terms of the number of pages of material they view…  Please see Alexablog’s comparison of this site (brown: markrathbun.wordpress.com) compared to theirs (blue: scientology.org) for recent page views per visitor.

Granted, they have exceeded me.  But, it is far from ‘far exceed[ing]’, even this humble site, let alone the millions of sites that far exceed their own number of page views per visitor.

Finally, let’s take up this claim: the Scientology site far exceeds the industry average in terms of the amount of time they spend there

Really?  Check out the Alexablog comparison between this site and theirs in terms of amount of time the average visitor stays:

David Miscavige’s IAS continues to make outright and knowing false and misleading representations in pursuit of the almighty buck.   If anyone has other, black and white evidence as I have presented here of similar fraudulent fundraising representations made by the IAS, please provide it to me by email.  I know some folks who intend to do something effective about this.

Proof of Life – the Mclaughlins

For those unfamiliar with how the IAS was hijacked by Miscavige and converted into a crush regging machine that overshadowed all previous corporate Scientology regging abuses in a matter of a few short years, please see this discussion between Mike Rinder and me:

The Hijacking of the International Association of Scientologists

Since that very accurate report on the depowering and imprisoning of Janet (Light) and Colm Mclaughlin, I have learned that they are alive and well and outside of Miscavige’s physical prison system.  They are living relatively free in Southern California.   Proof of life:

Janet Light Mclaughlin

Colm Mclaughlin

It remains to be seen whether the Mclaughlins step up and do something to cleanse their consciences and somehow serve the process of freeing others similarly situated.

But, I reported on their imprisonment and so now report on their subsequent freedom from captivity.   I wish them healing, health and happiness.

 

 

The Waterkamps Declare Independence

Gerhard Waterkamp and his family are living testament to the power of the Code of Honor.   They stood up to the German government and now they are standing up to its latest alter ego – corporate Scientology.

The Waterkamps

I was born and raised in Germany in a roman catholic family. At age 14 I cognited that the Roman Catholic church was in the majority not a spiritual organization concerned with the advancement of the spiritual aspects of humanity, but an organization with the purpose of controlling populations. There were a lot of good Christian people in the church and I loved some of the monks in the Dominican order I where I served as an Altar boy and ran youth groups for the church. But really, the church was just there as a control operation. So I forfeited my life in heaven and exchanged it for an eternity in hell – at least that is what my priest told me when I told him I was quitting his operation. I hurt my mother as she was a strong believer in catholic doctrines and I am sorry for that.  But it was more important to me to act on my principles and convictions than to take heed of other’s feelings, not to mention threats of eternal fire and other scary stuff. As a young kid in postwar Germany you were still very directly confronted with the horrors of war and the holocaust. And there was one question on my mind: How in the world could good and decent people stand by when their jewish neighbors were put on a transport and killed? The answer eluded me for more than 40 years.

But that was it for me on spiritualism. My mind was set, it was all a fraud. On a vacation trip 1979 in Portland Oregon somebody dragged me and my girlfriend into a building, made me fill out answers to 200 questions and then sat me down to look at a graph. Oh boy, was I screwed up. The lady looked me in the eyes and said: “you are a spirit”. I just went, ‘hey stay away from me with the ghost stuff, but what do you have to fix this screwed up graph?’ She mentioned the Dianetics book and wanted to sell me one. 1980 back in Germany I finally bought it and read it in 3 days. I was fascinated. This guy Hubbard understood everything I had read from Wilhelm Reich, Erich Fromm and what I knew from my dabbling in some of the eastern philosophies and Baghwan/Osh.  Not only that, this Hubbard guy was able to operationalize the data so you could do something practical with them. I was hooked.

I joined Scientology and the Bremen Mission as part time PRO (Public Relation Officer). There was this huge misconception about Scientology in Germany and I wanted to do something about it. So I went to all the public enemies of Scientology in the area, introduced myself, explained what Scientology is and left my card in case of any questions. That was 1980 and the world was good. I did auditor training in the mission and the grades and Scientology changed my life for the better. I married, brought my wife into Scientology and she became a very successful course supervisor in the mission. There were no PR issues in Bremen and the Bremen Mission was the only one recognized with a special non profit status. No attacks, we just had a good time; quite an untypical picture for Germany at that time.

Gerhard and Sabine back in the day

I really enjoyed the tech just a few things were off. If there would be such a thing as an insanity meter (like a Geiger counter just counting insanity particles) there would be an interesting phenomenon. The higher you went up management lines (not public or tech lines), the more insane it became. This thing would start with a quiet happy humming in the Mission over to a sound of a male cat in heat while in Hamburg Org to an outright concert of a dozen foghorns in Kopenhagen. These sea org recruiters that came to the mission were plain nuts and the IAS regges borderline violent insane. I experienced the slaughter of Wiebke Hansen, whom I knew very well when she was ED of Hamburg Org. David Miscavige made a draconian example of her and most was kept from public, but I knew her and people very close to her well and saw much of the bloodshed.

I loved the tech and saw it work; the nuisance of Scientology management was something one had to put up with. Nothing is perfect. So I issued a personal restraining order for all IAS regges and ignored recruiters. My wife and I went up the bridge to OTVII and I did my L’s, trained up to NED auditor and some OEC. We did Clear to OTVII at FLAG. Again I loved the tech, but the management at FLAG was insane. I was at the level of CFO for large corporations at that time in my career and the PR situation in Germany got really catastrophic (and worsened from there). Federal government officials at minister level told the German industry they should not have Scientologists in management. The stuff that was going on would make a witchhunt look like a stroll in the park. It was enough to read the Dianetic book to get fired from a job of some importance as happened to a trainer of the German Olympic fencing team. The hysteria in Germany grew wild. All fueled by a grossly misbehaving church and interested parties like the German Verfassungschutz which faced dissolution when the wall came down and they were in urgent need of a new enemy image to justify their existence, or Ursula Caberta a politician who saw this as a vehicle for her own self importance and getting taxpayer funding. I had the opportunity to befriend another big name critic in Germany much later. Renate Hartwig had written several anti Scientology books and was one of the most influential critics of her time. When I talked with her we found out the Verfassungschutz works even dirtier than OSA. No kidding – it is possible- but she wrote a book about that after we came to know each other and stopped her attacks on Scientology.

There was no differentiation (as there is now) between Scientology as a religious philosophy and Scientology as an organization. So as a public who participated in Scientology as a path of spiritual enrichment you were automatically branded with all the hysteria created against the church. I hoped (as it often turned out), that when people knew me and my family, they would recognize that the hysteria is not true and I hoped I could get some credit for good work and by setting a personal example.

Oh gee, was I wrong. 1995 a few weeks before I was to be announced the CEO of a 5000 person division of a large multinational manufacturer, the roman catholic church finally got even with me for deserting them as an altar boy. A roman catholic priest got a hold of a FLAG magazine listing my wife and me as OT VI completions and passed it to my employer. A few days later I was escorted by security out of the building. The owners wrote me a letter stating how disappointed they were, as per their own words, I had been one of their most energetic and productive executives and how in the world could I do it to them to be involved in Scientology.

Shortly thereafter the German Verfassungsschutz contacted one of my sisters with an offer: Work with us against Scientology and all is forgotten and forgiven.

Darn it, principles and convictions can be such a bitch.

Here I was, without means to support my family, publicly ousted as a bad guy and practically blacklisted from management positions in Germany. But here comes fate in the form of the US government to the rescue. We won the green card lottery! Next we were going through medical exams, background checks and other fun activities to be finally able to enter the US legally and permanently in August of 1996.

The Waterkamps come to America

When I had a job and money I got calls every day from the church to give money. When I was destroyed and still stood by my religion – silence. There is one individual though I want to thank. Maria Robb, she gave us our first job to get started in the US. She and her husband are nice and very decent people, too bad they are not looking. Maria, if you read this, if you ever need help, you have an open invitation, I owe you one.

From 1993 to 1996 I audited on OTVII and felt in1996 I was done, but Flag was again in turmoil and the C/S did not know what to do. I guess they were working on the re-release of OTVII at that time. I also noticed increasing outpoints with the church.There were falsehoods wherever you looked. I gave $45,000 starting in 1993 for Super Power because Bruce and Charmaine told me they needed the money to finish the building and release Super Power in two years’ time. I saw the importance and wanted to help. I visited Bruce about 7 years later and when I asked him why isn’t Super Power released yet he enthusiastically told me that COB is now involved and redoing and redesigning the whole interior and there will be wonderful statues. He clearly ignored the blank look on my face and definitely discounted the good state of my memory as I vividly recalled him telling me the urgent vital need for the money to release Super Power 7 years earlier. The statements of the church and the actual facts were just not adding up. 10,000 on OTVII makes no sense with the delivery model that everyone has to show up every 6 months in Florida. But the delivery model makes a lot of sense if you want a steady stream of prospects you can knock over for money. While the OT materials are downloadable with a Google search and are public domain, a pre OT had to go through a ever more complex procedure of locks and allowed locations for the materials for “security”. With the help of Murphy’s law this will lead either to paranoia or sure liability assignments, because the lock of one of the snappers on the briefcase in the locked cabinet in the locked office of the locked house was not locked. Oh boy, people in such a liability are an easy job for regges. As my favorite DofP and Reg the late Hy Levi said in the Truth Rundown. “It is all about the money.” Once you understood this, a lot of the insanity made sense.

I could tell hundreds of observations I made during 1988 and 1996 at Flag. I spent more than a year there, but it all adds up to this: The statements made by church officials do not match what is done.

During this time I was at a great point with OTVII and I had to rebuild my life in the US. I figured I would focus on that and all will sort out for the good, just give them more time. I hate to admit how wrong I was.

On another note I am a strong believer in human rights. So I went to Leisa Goodman the human rights director in the church in Los Angeles and told her: “If the Church is so for human rights, why don’t we do anything against the human rights violations in Germany?” Six weeks later Leisa came back and we started working on several media projects. During this time I met Mike Rinder and Heber Jentzsch on many occasions. We met Tommy Davis, Isaac Hayes, John Travolta and Chick Chorea when we testified in front of a government committee about human rights violations in Germany. And I am grateful to all of them for this. It is my fierce conviction that no government has the right to  the prejudicial treatment of an individual based on his or her membership – or perceived membership – in a certain group or category as the German government is doing.

Heber with the Waterkamp girls

My oldest daughter became involved in Youth for Human rights and was named President for this organization. One day she came home and said she had resigned from it because she felt she was used just as a puppet and her role was just fake. She did not want this as it felt like a lie.

Time went by. My daughters both went to Delphi LA and graduated form 8 and took off to college. Which brings us close to present time.

John Travolta and the Waterkamps Advocating for Human Rights

In January I read in a German online magazine that Debbie Cook had written anemail. Anyway, it was about time to pick up my spiritual path that I had postponed in the hope the insanity would be finished and I would have a smooth ride. So I started to check up where the church is. Of course over the years I got hundreds of calls to buy the basics, do this, do that but I told them I do stuff when I am ready and that is all I have to say. So here I am reading the different websites and oh my god, it has gotten much worse. In 1996 the church was more misleading than really flat out lying. When I watched the Truth Rundown I knew first hand what was true and what wasn’t. And everybody on those videos gave their viewpoint correctly and gave the truth. I then read the statements of the church and they were flat out utter lies. Denying the undeniable. I saw the church had completely lost it. Not because of what the critics said, but in the responses of the church. Freedom mag had become solely hate pages s consisting of character assassinations. I was used to Leisa Goodman and Andrew Milne who cared about facts and while I felt they were under undue pressure at times, would never turn this kind of garbage out that the church put up on their websites.

So I started more thorough research. Anybody can write stuff on a website, it was time for independent verification. Just one example of what I discovered. I found out and got it first hand how the church had taken a friend of mine for over $100,000.00 in sec checks, because he had mentioned critical thoughts about David Miscavige. And the church did not stop there. They were in the process of breaking up his family after 40 years of marriage. Daughter turning on father, wife turning on husband all in the name of the church. It was heartbreaking to see how the church was degrading decent human beings into being scared, robotic and confused individuals. The wife had done OTVIII twice and was in complete obedience to the church and treason to her husband of 40 years, all just because he could not take the treatment he was given any longer. The family had agreed for 4 years not to talk about Scientology matters so nobody could write knowledge reports about each other. Here is the hammer, they are a field auditors group highly trained in PTS SP tech and did nothing else in their day to day life than Scientology.

While the tech that I studied was designed to bring about spiritual freedom, the current church uses it to make slaves. They want control, they need obedience and to own you so they can own your money. I am not as highly technically trained as others, but I can observe the products the church puts out these days. After 4 months I came to the conclusion the church has morphed into a fascistic organization that destroys lives. The final end product of this church is enslaved individuals, destroyed families, destroyed relationships: in short, destroyed lives. I saw this over and over and over during my research. It was not the exception, for anybody having temporary gains there were 10 disasters. The church arbitrarily applies policy where it fits their purpose to cover up their crimes. There is no honest application of green on white or red on white anymore.

So I knew what was coming, when I sent a request to Flag and other Scientology organizations for a return of my unused money. They can live with the fact that I talk to Marty, Mike and Karen. They cannot live with the fact that I want the money back that they owe me per their own policy.

Which brings us to present time. This morning the rumor mill started and the facebook police went into action:

“Sorry to tell you Sabine Waterkamp got declared a few days ago. I have unfriended her and also blocked her on Facebook. I suggest you do the same.

 Any questions? Call Daniel, Chief MAA at Flag, (727) 423-1269. That’s how I learned of the sad event.

ML, Sandee”

The irony is this this email is sent around to our friends by Sandee Ferman. Sandee was fired from Delphi Academy a few years ago because she was involved in massive fraud by falsifying statistics at Delphi Academy for years which brought the school to the brink of disaster. The church has to use known frauds these days to do their dirty work.

As expected nobody from the church has informed us.  They are too cowardly to confront us. Nobody has shown us any declare, no committee of evidence, nothing. Hi Freya, if you are still at OSA and read this our fax is 818-951-7352. You should send us at least a copy so we know what we are accused off.

Now get this, when Sandee was asked for more information this is the response:

Daniel, Chief MAA at Flag, reports they connected up with unfriendlies and started speaking out against the Church. They also requested refunds. It was pretty clear to me. I just got off the phone with him. I gave you his cell phone number.

But I got even better; the church called the step father of Jake Leistra, a young man who was the boyfriend of my youngest daughter. We took him into our house for some time and helped him also financially, while his parents were giving him in his own words no money at all.  He ate our food, slept in our guest bed, drove our cars and got any support we could give. We even took him on occasional vacation trips paid for him no questions asked. When he had to move his furniture we carried it with him and let him use our cars. So his stepfather, who does not support Jake with any money at all (Jake’s own words), tells him we were declared and sends him to AOLA.  Jake went to AOLA and got a SP declare shown and reports back to my daughter that the declare states Sabine and I are talking to undesirables and that I asked for a refund of unused money on account. Oh, by the way, they not only showed him this declare, they showed him the disconnection policies and worked him over. After that,  Jake (like a little spineless marsh mellow), rolled over and made himself a doormat. He called my daughter on the phone telling her he needs to break up with her because her parents are declared. The church even breaks up girlfriend and boyfriend, and robs a young man of the opportunities for a better life.

Chick Corea: Wake Up! Your little helpers in arms in the fight for Human Rights are having their own violated by your ‘church’ at this moment

So here it is, the church confirms on official lines, that when they are asked per their own policy to repay money that they hold for parishioners they pull out a declare to avoid paying it. It is all about the money. Not to mention they confirm they have a disconnection policy.

Not that I care what the church does. The church has less moral authority than the gopher in our front yard to assign me anything. I do not give notorious liars and suppressives any importance. The church has proven through their own hate websites and their many documented crimes against human beings, their corruption of Scientology technology with the effect of destroying and suppressing human beings and their constant blatant violations of policy that they are in treason to LRH, the goals of Scientology and all of mankind.

I am a Scientologist and I stood up for my religion against discrimination in Germany and I will stand up for my religion against a suppressive group like the current Church of Scientology. I am an independent Scientologist.

But I need to thank the church for helping me to answer the question I had on my mind for 40 years. How could Nazi Germany and the Holocaust happen?

Obviously you need to put up a higher purpose, like saving the aryan race or saving the planet. A lot of good, willing people will come and really help with this positive goal. Then you put them into a pressure cooker, military drill, sleep deprivation and work them really hard. Next you make it a crime to receive any other communication than the one approved by dear Fuehrer and work them even harder, then you shoot some of them for the just and good cause (to save the aryan race or the planet or whatever your item is) or just beat them up publicly to instill fear. And you keep that up for some time and everybody who says “wait a minute” is sent to the death camp or RPF and you end up with a group of robots that stop thinking and do the most incredible things like killing other human beings just for a different opinion, race or skin color.

To my friends still in the church: It takes people with spine and knowing the price of freedom to prevent this from happening.

My beautiful and wonderful wife of 26 years, Sabine, who went with me through all of this, claims number 357 on the Indy 500 list and I’d like to be 358.

BONUS addition – Gerhard’s letter to the Flag MAA:

Open letter to Chief MAA Flag Land Base

Dear Daniel, It came to my attention that you started to dramatize your PTSnes on my and my family’s communication lines. First I want to alert you to the fact that I as a Scientologist resign from the Church of Scientology as said church has abandoned the goals and the creed of Scientology as laid out by L. Ron Hubbard. I am in full support of the religious philosophy of Scientology but the current Church of Scientology demonstrates through their actions on a daily basis their disdain for the tech, policy and basic human decency and should not be allowed to have the word Scientology as part of their name. You are sending local operatives to contact friends and acquaintances of me and my family and spread vicious lies about us. I sent your operative Sandee Ferman a cease and desist notice and if this is not immediately complied with I will file in court against her and the church civilly for harassment and start also criminal proceedings. I also demand that you immediately cease and desist in all activities directed against me, my familiy, my business, and my business and social relationships.  In the event that you choose not to cease and desist, or in any other manner, choose to retaliate against me, or any of my business associates, including vendors with which I have done business, I am prepared to protect my legal rights to the maximum extent permitted by law, including a civil action and a request for punitive damages. Secondly any Tortious Interference with prospective economic advantage of mine or with contractual relationships of our business with clients and vendors entitles me to economic losses, and damages for mental distress and since I can prove malice on your part I will also be entitled to punitive damages.  I am fully aware that you and your agents are in contact with one of my business associates spreading lies about me and will monitor the situation and if you do not stop the tortious interference I will put your and the churches ethics in on that. Since FLAG does not have enough ethics and decency to respond to justified and on policy refund request, but elects to start a smear campaign against me and my family, this constitutes willful infliction of emotional pain for which I will have to obtain damages as well in a separate lawsuit. Here is a suggestion, before you end up in the RPF of the RPF because in your PTSnes you are currently screwing this up beyond belief: apply correct ethics for a change. Put in Ethics at Flag, so that FLAG as an organization applies the refund policy correctly and ethically as laid out by LRH in HCOPL 23 October 1963, REFUND POLICY. Do the same to CCInt and the Super Power project. Bruce and Charmaine obtained fraudulently funds from me with the help of outright lies and deception. I am not interested in a fight with the church. The church has made itself completely and utterly irrelevant for me personally and for society as a whole. With their predatory regging practices, outright PR lies to cover up their crimes people are defecting in droves. Your church is more a laughing stock than anything of importance. No wonder it ranks in polls in the US in reputation even under radical Muslims.  Fighting the church is a waste of time and energy and attention units. Fighting the abuses and crimes committed by this church though is necessary to keep an ethics presence and control your dramatizations. You may not know this. I fought side by side with the president of the Church of Scientology Heber Jentzsch against abuses and human rights violations of the German government and gave my career to protect my religion. Do not make the mistake to think I let the church get away with abuses against me, my family or my business.  The church put my friend Heber Jentzsch into the hole and he failed to look through the lies and deceit put up by David Miscavige and his enablers. I am still defending Scientology this time against an abusive and corrupt church against the enemy from within. So get your ethics in and handle your PTS situation and get ethics in on this cycle. Pay me the money back that is owed to me and stop this nonsense. That is your job and what LRH expects from. Not to instigate smear campaigns, that is what crooks are doing. If you want to check out of the Sea Org and its insanity I will help you to get your life together.
