Billion Dollar Babies – Cruise and Miscavige

While I was going through my decompression from Scientology Inc. my wife and I watched Paul Haggis‘ Oscar-winning film Million Dollar Baby.   The movie prompted me to have the first in-depth discussion on the subject of Scientology that I had had since leaving the cult.   I pointed out to Monique Haggis’  wonderful depiction of a number of elements of L. Ron Hubbard’s seminal work, The Code of Honor.

I was to later learn that David Miscavige and his deputy Tom Cruise had quite an opposite reaction to Haggis’ award-winning work.

Movie guys Tom and Dave on a date

I covered it in The Scientology Reformation: What Every Scientologist Should Know, as follows:

At first, Wilhere acted as if this surprise encounter and Tom’s immediate cottoning to Nazanin (Boniadi) would take priority over the “secret mission” for which she’d been selected. But after Nazanin lived with Cruise for a couple of weeks, the heights of Miscavige’s conceit apparently made him forget to inform Nazanin that the “secret project” had been cancelled. Nazanin began to suspect her encounter with Cruise was set up from the beginning.  She was so overwhelmed, though, by the affections of the number-one movie star in the world and the number-two Scientologist in the world, that she was afraid to create an upset. Her trepidation was exacerbated by the fact that she was constantly being coached by Tommy Davis and his then-wife Nadine, as well as Tommy’s future wife Jessica Feshbach, on how to act around Cruise. They were clearly working for the boss, David Miscavige, and the coaching was constantly reinforced with implications that her pleasing Tom Cruise was the most important thing in the world of Scientology.

Ultimately, Cruise’s own behavior became so erratic that Nazanin had difficultly continuing to play the obedient wife-to-be.

One evening, while Miscavige and his wife Shelly were visiting Tom’s home in Telluride, Colorado, they watched a private screening of the Paul Haggis written, Oscar-winning movie Million Dollar Baby. David Miscavige proclaimed extreme distaste for the movie, saying the content indicated that Paul Haggis, a Scientologist at the time, was a depraved person.

“Yeah,” Tom piled on, “what is up with Haggis? Is he back on board?”

Miscavige asserted, “No, that film was so low-toned and completely psych-oriented.”

“Yeah,” Tom double-piled on, “he needs to get his ethics in.”

Tom and Dave apparently prefer billion dollar babies to million dollar babies:

“Then there is me!” – Tom Cruise

The Gates of Hell from the Scientology Reformation

Tony Ortega’s Review

Many have speculated just how far Tom Cruise has gone into the Scientology Inc. bedlam created by his best man David Miscavige.   The book The Scientology Reformation answers that question rather definitively, now available in Kindle e-book format.

Excerpt from Chapter 8:  The Gates Of Hell

…Miscavige’s reaction to my escape was chilling. He ordered John Brousseau, his resident handyman – and the architect of most of the Tom Cruise vehicle and home upgrades – to install prison bars on all windows in the Hole so that no one else could escape.

With me out of the way, Miscavige’s madness was unbridled. He began to tell Tom Cruise tales of having to physically beat the degraded beings in his environment to keep them in line. Cruise followed suit, doing the same to his own staff. Michael Doven, his long-time personal assistant, started receiving regular physical abuse from Tom. Another of Tom’s staff – a woman – was grabbed and slammed up against a file cabinet by Cruise for failing to show him proper respect. He railed and screamed, like Miscavige, when he discovered a near-microscopic chip in a drinking glass handed to him by one of his staff. He was convinced the degraded beings were steadily sabotaging him, stalking him like the zombies from Night of the Living Dead. Tom even physically abused the one-time international spokesperson for Scientology, one Tommy Davis.

Miscavige was happy to have Tom ape his own psychotic behavior. He once briefed the inhabitants of the Hole that Tom was fully informed of their conspiracies to destroy Miscavige.  He told the assembled that Tom promised to come to the Hole to give Yager, Ray Mithoff (the highest scriptural authority in Scientology) and the former executor of Mr. Hubbard’s will, Norman Starkey, black eyes if their confessions were not to Dave’s liking. In order to prevent the world’s biggest star from having to do Dave’s dirty work, the leadership within the Hole decided they had better do it first. The eighty staff went into a frenzy of punching and kicking the trio, fattening the lips and blackening the eyes of all three.

By mid-to-late 2004 Tom was so locked in to Miscavige’s spell he was incapable of comfortable socialization with the outside world, at least on an intimate basis. He asked his best friend Dave to help him find a good-looking Scientologist wife, so he would not wind up with another degraded being like his previous two wives…

…During this same trip, Nazanin (the Miscavige chosen Scientologist wife-to-be for Cruise, Nazanin Boniadi) apparently “disrespected” Miscavige in front of Cruise, by seeking to clarify his trademark staccato comments a couple of times. This prompted Cruise to begin showing Nazanin his ugly, “big-being” side.

Tom took her into his home office to give her a “reality adjustment” in front of Tommy Davis, who remained quiet the entire time.

Sitting across from Tom at a wide table – like an employee set down for a tongue-lashing from the boss – Nazanin could hardly believe what she was hearing.

Tom looked at her like a frustrated, overworked executive, let down by a degraded-being underling.

Then he gave her the intense, laser-focus stare.

“You don’t get it. It goes like this,” Tom explained.

He raised his hand above his head, palm downward. “First, there is LRH.”

Moving his hand down a couple of inches, he continued: “Then there is COB (David Miscavige).”

He brought his hand down to his own hairline, highlighting the intensity and seriousness of his words:  “Then there is me.”

Nazanin looked at him stoically, hiding her shock at Cruise’s performance of his best Jack Torrance – the psychotic killer played by Jack Nicholson in the film The Shining.

“Dave and me, we’re big beings. We are surrounded by DB’s (degraded beings). DBs can’t help but try to destroy big beings. That’s just the way it is in this universe. You have to understand this. This is LRH, man. It’s the plight of the big being getting jumped on by all the degraded beings. You gotta be unreasonable to survive around a big being like me. You can’t be weak. You gotta be strong to protect the big being from all the degraded beings.” Cruise slammed his fist on the table, veins popping out of his neck from the intensity of his tirade…

Scientology Inc – Operation Censorship

references: Busted! Scientology Spies in South Texas and The Rest of the Story – Scientology Spies in Texas

If you really want to understand what it is like defying Scientology Inc. oppression, you need to reach back in history for data of comparable magnitude.   That is because there is no other organization in the age of information that acts quite like Scientology Inc.   The institution is an anachronism.   You would need to look for examples from Cold War CIA, KGB, and STASI (East German state security  intelligence agency) to really get the picture. In the past I have recommended an award-winning movie to people who really want to understand and get a  feel for the experience.  It is called The Lives of Others.  You can order the movie through netflix.   Given current events, it is more relevant than ever.  Here is a trailer:

Compare the trailer, and the movie when you get the chance, to recent events posted on this blog.   To make the parallel even more fitting, one should consider what I am consistently doing between sessions, blogging, dealing with incoming harassment and running an underground railroad.  That is, that which David Miscavige is attempting to derail more than any of that. I am writing books about Scientology.  During the entire spy catching incident playing out in my sleepy town over the past two weeks,  I was reviewing proofs of a new book I am publishing in the next week.  The book may be the definitive piece on ‘What Your Donations to Scientology Inc Buy’.  What those fees buy couldn’t be more at odds with what Scientologists are led to believe that they buy.  Recent events speak to the credibility of what you will read when the book is available.   The magnitude of efforts to silence me speak to the importance of the information I am working on conveying in a meaningful and long lasting context.

Here is what one of the few people who have had a chance to read an advance copy of the book has to say about it:

Marty Rathbun is uniquely qualified to write this book.  He is a rascal, a rogue and a mensch. He is an insider with an exterior point of view.  He is a fine writer and a student of history with a perspective that lends value to his accounting of things that should be of interest to anyone who was ever trapped in a mindset. I found this book absorbing and unsettling and revealing and a little astonishing, and the time reading it well spent.

Clearly, Miscavige does not like absorbing, unsettling and especially does not like revealing.  But, his continuing STASI-like conduct only exacerbates and accentuates the truth of it.

The Rest of the Story – Scientology Inc. Spies

reference:  Busted!  Scientology Spies in South Texas

In the third week of September a documentary film crew arrived at our home for a ten day stint.   The crew wanted to know all about Operations of David Miscavige’s Scientology Inc. carried out against Monique and me.   I told them there had been no overt harassment to speak of  going on around here since Nov 2, 2011 when the Miscavige Squirrels left town.  There was only a deep-cover, constant surveillance operation.

They pressed for particulars on the surveillance apparatus.  I told them I assumed there were at least three safe houses in our town that were devoted to surveillance.  I described how they would situate them so that they could alert tails in such a fashion that we could never spot a tail.   They asked whether I had any suspicions about any of the houses involved. I casually pointed to a green house situated catty-corner to ours, 201 Bayshore Drive, apparently abandoned for the two years we’ve lived in our current locale.  I noted small slits cut in the upstairs bedroom window blinds facing our home.  I told them that if I had the time I could likely blow the whole thing wide open, but with all the other forms of resistance that gets thrown our way, and the importance of our activity, I don’t have the time to investigate it.  So, we live with it.  I told them I wasn’t too interested in fooling with it because it was David Miscavige’s intent to distract me from the more important work we do day in and day out; that the intent of Miscavige’s productions was to get into the target’s head; and that the way to get into Miscavige’s head is not let him get into yours, or as Jason Beghe says “the way to handle bullying is to not be bullied.”

The crew was fascinated and began filming the green house with particular attention to the window.  That was 22 September.

The week before last the following scene was posted on my blog.  Pictured are Paul Marrick, Greg Arnold, Tony Ortega, and three members of the documentary film production crew preparing for a tour of Ingleside on the Bay (IOB).

The film crew recorded my drive through IOB with Paul and Greg narrating the two missions they conducted in the neighborhood in March 2009.  Their mission was to ‘case’ IOB in order to set up what Miscavige ordered to be a surveillance set up ‘ten times what we did for Broeker’, except this time on yours truly.   Greg and Paul were brought in because the PI tailing me up to that time was, in the words of Greg and Paul, an amateur.   He was not keeping David Miscavige sufficiently informed of every last action of my wife and me  and so Miscavige wanted the heavyweights to come set the scene straight.  The ‘amateur’, Monty Drake,  had been Scientology Inc.’s Texas PI since 1988.   In that year he worked on Rick and Vicki Aznaran (former Inspector General who was suing RTC) of Dallas.  During the nineties Drake was assigned to scour every last detail of Lisa McPherson’s life, the woman whose life David Miscavige cut short in 1995.   According the former Director of Special Affairs Scientology Dallas, Drake was also assigned to put the late-heretic Alan Walter to rest.

Arnold and Marrick described their recommendations, which included the purchase or lease of at least three (3) safe houses for surveillance of me and my wife – just as I had long-ago predicted to my wife and several days previous had estimated to the film crew.   Since that time we have moved to the other side of the town of 615 people.    But, Drake was assigned to take Paul and Greg’s recommendations and implement them for our new location.

I pointed out to Greg and Paul the suspicious circumstance in the home catty-corner to ours.  Here is a shot of the home from my living room.

201 Bayshore Drive

The back bedroom window facing our home – with the two blue splotches on it (from tape I have since applied to the window) had three cut outs in the closed blinds that looked as if they could be allowing cameras to surveil our home.

As we completed our IOB tour and were heading down Bayshore Drive to our home, I noticed a grey Crown Victoria backing out of the driveway of 201 Bayshore Drive.  As I pointed it out to the film crew and Arnold and Marrick, the car quickly reversed into forward and sped back into the home’s carport.   In the thirty seconds it took us to arrive at the home, the driver of the car had secreted himself within the house.

I dropped the crew and others off at my home.  The crew wired me up and provided me with a camera as I walked to 201 to confront the mystery visitor.  The car was gone.  I banged on the door for some time.   The home looked unlived in, and the door to the suspicious bedroom was closed shut.   On the way out, I noticed the grey crown victoria had been put into the garage.    So, the mystery visitor was inside, apparently hiding.

Law enforcement officials traced the plates on the car to one Fidel Garcia Jr., of  FNG Security, Corpus Christi and San Antonio. When I returned to my house, the grey crown victoria sped out of the garage and left IOB at at least 80 mph.  Since no human forms had been seen at that house for two years, we all concluded that the Film Crew’s interest and the appearance of Marrick and Arnold (accompanied by three lawyers, including Sugar Ray Jeffrey) must have caused David Miscavige to choke –  sending his PI in in the middle of the day to either attempt to clean out the house of equipment or adjust focuses on the cameras so that DM could make out the corps of media, lawyers and investigators who were congregating at my home.

The next day I caused Garcia to meet me in a coffee shop in downtown Corpus Christi.  When we met I told him that I knew what he was doing in the house on the corner across from mine. I told him about the people that he works for.  I let him know that I could handle what he had been doing but I that I thought that he ought to search his conscience about what he was putting my wife through.  Garcia, the 6′ 5″ sniveling coward denied knowledge of Scientology.  Instead he claimed to be working on a confidential project for Kiewit Offshore Services (largest San Pat county employer, constructs and repairs oil rigs).   He said it was a Security Department program that require a number of random investigators to come to the house in question periodically to take readings from a computer stationed there.  He denied that there were any cameras in the house.  I told Garcia that I would check on his story and if he was telling the truth, I would take him out to dinner and apologize for wasting his time; but that if I found he was lying he would take me out to dinner and sort out how he would make good with our family.  Garcia agreed.  The entire conversation was recorded by the documentary  film crew; I bet you’ll see substantial portions of it sometime around Spring or Summer next year.

I visited the head of security at Kiewit who told me that Mr. Garcia was lying through his teeth.  He was not employed by Kiewit and Kiewit had no operations whatsoever off their own plant premises.

In the meantime, I found out that the lessee of the home in question (201 Bayshore Drive) was one Monty Drake.

Mark Collette of the Corpus Christi Caller Times then phoned Fidel Garcia to confront him with his lies to me.  Garcia held to his Kiewit story.   Collette then called Monty Drake.  Drake denied any connection to Scientology, but did admit to ‘doing business’ at 201 Bayshore.

I then phoned Mr. Garcia to call in the promise he had made to me at the coffee shop several days before.

You can hear that conversation here:

Fidel Garcia Jr. 4 Oct 2012 conversation

I then phoned Monty Drake to give him an opportunity to make good for the crimes he had committed against my family.   Drake confirmed he had been at 201 for ‘longer’ than I had lived in my current home.

You can hear my discussion with Drake here:

Monty Drake conversation 4 Oct 2012

Drake hung up the phone while I was clarifying his admission that he had been at 201 Bayshore for longer than I had been in my current home.  I knew Drake was lying even about that.

In fact, Drake leased 201 Bayshore drive, the very same day that Monique and I moved into our current home.   November 1, 2010.   Drake knew that I was moving into my home a couple weeks before that date, because Scientology Inc. was surveilling me visiting our new home two weeks in advance when I was making improvements in preparation for our Nov 1 move in.

I also learned that shortly after the film documentary crew began taking overt interest in 201 Bayshore, 22 Sept, Drake re-signed a THREE YEAR lease on 201 Bayshore, more than a month before his current leased expired.  David Miscavige has committed to pay 1,500/month for the next three years to be next to me when he was alarmed that I might force him to leave me and my wife alone.   All told, in lease payments alone, Miscavige has committed to spending $90,000 in church of Scientology parishioner donations for 201 Bayshore Drive in IOB, 40% of which has already been spent.

Now, for the photos the Caller Times did not publish.   First, there was more than one video camera.   There are TWO, in addition to the still camera.

Third camera

Incidentally, the still camera’s telephoto lens appears to be about a foot and one half long.  As Monique put it, “strong enough to read the ingredients from the containers of the food we eat”, particularly since it is trained on our living room, dining room, and kitchen.

In addition to the three cameras, the Miscavige bedroom was outfitted with a desktop computer and a laptop computer on a desk with a chair.   All three cameras were connected by wiring to the computer set up.  Clearly, David Miscavige had it all set up so that he personally could watch my wife and me 24/7/365 from the comfort of his bunker near Hemet, California.

Busted! Scientology Spies in South Texas

Please see this story in the Corpus Christi Caller Times, Scientology’s Rathbun questions why cameras are trained on his house in Ingleside on the Bay.

The Times told only a partial story, hamstrung by THREATS and FALSE denials that will come back to haunt David Miscavige, as per usual.

The Private Eye Monty Drake, who admits in the story to doing business out of the house with the cameras at issue, has been the church of Scientology’s go-to gumshoe in Texas since the late eighties.  He was retained then to go after former Inspector General RTC (Vicki Aznaran) after she and her husband sued RTC.   In the nineties he investigated every detail of the life of Lisa McPherson prior to David Miscavige causing her untimely death.

Monty was assigned to surveil my wife and me in 2009.  Because he did not know where we were 24/7/365,  Greg Arnold and Paul Marrick were flown to Ingleside on the Bay twice to case the town and propose to Miscavige a plan ‘ten times the magnitude of what was done for Broeker.’  The proposal included the purchase/leasing of three homes in my neighborhood.   Monty Drake was given the high-paying job of executing the plan.

Monty Drake is a loser, low-life excuse for a private dick.  You will learn more about him, his team, and how his operation was discovered and exposed over the  next several days on this blog.

In the meantime, you can divine quite a bit about his character by visiting his website:

Steve Poore: A Re-Introduction to Scientology

Dear friends and fellow Scientologists,

Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t been too active or visible at OTC meetings, OT Ambassador activities   (I have been an OT Ambassador since 1995), Int Events, Ideal Org fund raising meetings, Ideal Org openings, etc. over the past many months.  I haven’t been back to Flag for about a year.

Some of you may have wondered what’s happened.  Well, the truth is, I have been wondering that myself.  I have pondered this and even concluded that my withdraw must be caused by my own overts and withholds.  I’ve originated this to Tech Terminals at Flag, D of P, Flag MAA, to my FSM and even to close friends (that I must have O/Ws causing withdraw).  I have been in session at Flag several times over the past year or two and in metered interviews with MAA.  I have also written up OWs.  Still, I found myself not really reaching or wanting to participate in these church activities including my own Bridge progress. (And yes, I did complete The Basics about 4 years ago and had good wins).

There just seemed to be these nagging considerations of outpoints that would not as-is, go away.  As of this date, my Ethics File at Flag is very empty with the exception of many dozens of Commendations as an OT Ambassador for 17 yrs., Power FSM and Front Lines Disseminator in the WISE Sector for the past 29 years.  I’m not saying here that I am some perfect little angel, but those of you who know me, know that I have been an unwavering, staunch supporter and defender of our church, Scientology and LRH for 35 years.

Why am I communicating to you?

“We of the Church believe … that all men have inalienable rights to think freely, to talk freely, to write freely their own opinions and to counter or utter or write upon the opinion of others…” The Creed of the Church of Scientology, 1954.

Hung-up at Doubt.  “But if he’s PTS, he’s stuck in a problem and is unable to come to a decision.  When a person is faced with suppression…The first manifestation of and the first consequence of a problem is indecision…FALSE DATA.

False data can also cause a hang-up on the Doubt Formula…stuck with this suppressive false data.” – HCO PL 18 DECEMBER 1982 ETHICS CONDITIONS: HANG-UP AT DOUBT

Did I have “false data” was I under “suppression”?

I’ve realized in recent weeks, that I have effectively been in sort of a state of indecision and silent protest for many months, even several years now.  And that I have had some major and basic considerations that I just couldn’t reconcile.

Precept # 7 TWTH: “Seek To Live With The Truth.  False data can cause one to make stupid mistakes.  It can block one from absorbing true data.”

I also know as a trained Data Series evaluator, that behind Out-points there is a Situation and below that a Why.

“Personal  integrity is knowing what you know – what you know is what you know – and to have the courage to know and to say what you have observed. And that is integrity.” -LRH

There is a tag line message in Church Promo that states: “think for yourself.” I personally think this is good advice.

LRH states this another way:  “Look, don’t listen.”  HCO PL 7 February 1965 KSW Series 1, Keeping Scientology Working

“A true group must have a management which deals in affinity, reality and communication, and any group is totally within its rights, when a full and reasonable examination discloses management in fault of perverting or cutting ARC, of slaughtering, exiling or suspending that management.   ARC is sacred.”  Essay on Management

“[People] learn to keep their mouths shut, and it’s the wrong lesson. When in doubt, talk. When in doubt, communicate… you’ll be very successful all the way along the line if you just remember that.”  The Phoenix Lectures 1954

“What would happen if all men were free enough to speak?  Then and only then would you have freedom.”  HCO PL 8 February 1960 Honest People Have Rights, Too (OEC Vol. 0, p. 461)

“There is no slightest advantage in getting somebody to believe some fundamental truth uninspected. …and when he can inspect without fear, he can know the truth of things.  And the odd part of it is that once you know the truth of something, it can’t bite…”, excerpt from London Congress, TRUTH AND FREEDOM 23 June 1960

“Any management which operates as a censorship or a propaganda medium will inevitably destroy itself and injure the group.”  HCOPL 9 Jan 51 An Essay On Management (OEC Vol. 7 p. 567)

Okay, so I’m speaking freely and speaking out.  If my observations and comments are just lies, and I’m only attempting to rabble rouse, then how can reading this harm you or anyone?

There is an ironbound rule in handling things:  WHERE YOU FIND OUTPOINTS, YOU WILL THERE ALSO FIND A SITUATION.”  SITUATION FINDING, Data Series 30

Below are just a few of the outpoints and situations that I have been attempting to understand or to think with.  The outpoints and situations I’m listing here have become increasingly impossible to ignore.  This is of course my data and observations; you will need to think for yourself and decide for yourself based on your own observations and your own data.  “Look, don’t listen.”

New definition of Floating Needle at Flag.  About 2 years ago, I was given an interesting indoctrination by a Word Clearer in the OT VI course room at Flag. The Word Clearer insisted on me agreeing that the definition of “rhythmic” as in “…rhythmic sweep of the dial…” was that the needle had to swing three times before it could be called an FN.

Here is LRH’s definition:  “A floating needle is a rhythmic sweep of the dial at a slow, even pace of the needle.  That’s what an F/N is.  No other definition is correct.”  HCOB 21 July 1978 What Is A Floating Needle? (Tech Vol. II, p. 204) this definition of FN is also in the Tech Dictionary.

I also noticed over the past few years at Flag, in the AO HGCs, that at the after session examiner, the examiner would consistently sit there after I picked up the cans and stare at the meter, wait and wait.  This was very odd (outpoint) as in each case I obviously had FNed at the end of session and here I was having trouble FNing at the examiner.

After this happened a couple of times, I learned to sit there and review in my head or in some cases verbalize my wins and cogs in session, and even in some cases, when that didn’t work, begin thinking about just some win in life to get the meter to FN.  This experience was very odd (outpoint), as in all my 30 + yrs. of auditing, I’ve never experienced having trouble at the examiner.  I just sort of thought, oh well, I guess it’s just me.

Now, looking back on this over the past few months, I have also realized that maybe I wasn’t the only one experiencing this as I’ve noticed consistently long lines at the examiner.  I had the same experience at the Success Examiner, trouble FNing. The last time at Success I was red-tagged, sent to Qual and told by the Qual Sec after she watched the video, that I in fact did FN and then I proceeded to attest.  Recently, I was able to confirm with other Flag Public that they have had the same experience and observations.

LRH:  “One often wonders why people are so ‘reasonable’ about intolerable and illogical situations.  The answer is very simple: they cannot recognize outpoints when they see them and so try to make everything seem logical.  The ability to actually see an outpoint for what it is, in itself is an ability to attain some peace of mind. …The human reaction is to react to an outpoint. And then get ‘reasonable’ and adopt some explanation for it, usually untrue.

You can safely say that ‘being reasonable’ is a symptom of being unable to recognize outpoints for what they are and use them to discover actual situations.”  HCO P/L 30 September 1973 Issue II Data Series 30, Situation Finding (Management Series Vol. 1, p. 128)

“A lot of people are on a stuck flow of being sensible and sane — and that winds up in stupidity.   So they get reasonable.  Their confront of evil isn’t up to it — basically, their confront of outpoints.”  HCO P/L 18 March 1977RA Data Series 43RA, Evaluation and Programs (Management Series Vol. 1, p. 167)

“It is horrifying to behold how easily people buy dub-in.  This is because an illogical sequence is uncomfortable.  To relieve the discomfort they distort their own observation by not-ising the outpoint and concluding something else.”  HCO P/L 18 May 1970 Data Series 7, Familiarity (Management Series Vol. 1, p. 29)

Back to this new definition of FN. Was there a Hidden Data Line?

“The first goof relating to Releases is the one done for fifteen years — running past a free, floating needle on any type of process. THIS is the goof that held back all Scientology.  And if it continues to be done, known as well as it is now that you mustn’t, one can only consider it suppressive — not just ignorant — as who now doesn’t know you wreck a Release by running past the floating needle?”  HCOB 2 August 1965 Release Goofs (Tech Vol. VII, p. 631)

“But how would one, who has not studied policy or is not very far advanced in his tech training know when he was being given an off-policy or out-tech order?

1. If it seems kind of stupid it is probably off-policy or out-tech…

2. Require that one be shown in the exact issue or book what the policy or tech actually is.

3. Read it for yourself and don’t listen to any interpretation that seems far-fetched.”  HCO P/L 13 January 1979 Orders, Illegal and Cross (OEC Vol. 0, p. 145)

“Some students have believed there was a “hidden data line” of tech in Scientology, a line on which Scientology tech was given out by me but not made known to students.

… There is no such line. The whole of technology is released in HCO Bulletins and HCO Policy Letters and tapes I do and release.  I don’t tell people anything in some private way, not even Instructors. ‘…If it isn’t written, it isn’t true…’ Somebody says ‘Ron said to — ‘ and on a veteran staff you hear the rejoinder ‘Let’s see it…’ So we have learned the hard way —  ‘If it isn’t written, it wasn’t said’.   HCO P/L 16 April 1965, Issue I KSW Series 22, The “Hidden Data Line” (OEC Vol. 4, p. 347)

“A ‘hidden data line’ is a pretense that certain data exists outside of HCOBs, books, and tapes.”  HCOB 1 September 1971, Issue I C/S Series 57, A C/S as a Training Officer—A Program for Flubless Auditing (Subject Vol. 1, p. 214)

IS THIS NEW DEFINITION OF FLOATING NEEDLE BEING IMPLEMENTED BY RTC AT FLAG? – read on or go to the attachment here and read 31 Factors for Scientologists to Consider.

I discovered that “Since this redefinition of F/Ns was first incorporated into the Pro Metering and Solo courses, students have been referred to sources as far-fetched as the Art Series, the Marketing Series, a physics text, and The Encyclopedia of Music, in order to understand it.” www.friendsoflrh.org     Friends of LRH web-site.

Incorporated into SOLO COURSES?   

 

“Psychotics deal with doing people in. Their whole mission in life is destruction.

 

They inveigh against lower levels gains and seek to discredit them since these run contrary to their aberrated purpose.

 

But when it gets to Clears and OT levels, psychos go berserk!”

 

…OT LEVELS HCO BULLETIN 10 MAY 1982

 

The above (re-defining FN) is JUST ONE example of gross corruption of the Tech, Policy and KSW.

“ANY PERSON FOUND TO BE USING VERBAL TECH SHALL BE SUBJECT TO A COURT OF ETHICS. THE CHARGES ARE GIVING OUT DATA WHICH IS CONTRARY TO HCO BULLETINS OR POLICY LETTERS, OR OBSTRUCTING THEIR USE OF APPLICATION, CORRUPTING THEIR INTENT, ALTERING THEIR CONTENT IN ANY WAY, INTERPRETING THEM VERBALLY OR OTHERWISE FOR ANOTHER, OR PRETENDING TO QUOTE THEM WITHOUT SHOWING THE ACTUAL ISSUE.  ANY ONE OF THESE CATEGORIES CONSTITUTES VERBAL TECH AND IS ACTIONABLE PER THE ABOVE.”  HCOB 15 February 1979 KSW Series 24, Verbal Tech: Penalties (Tech Vol. XI, p.447)

“So we can assume that people who are a bit inclined to malign, knock apart and shoot the human race, and have that as their only goal, can get into Scientology and can remove things from the technical line, or pervert or alter things in the technical line, which then makes Scientology unworkable.”  “And the higher on a command line the power is drawn from, the wider area the alter-is covers.”  Class VIII TAPE 1 “An Introduction To Standard Tech” 24 September 1968

It has been very perplexing to me why so many high profile senior execs (most on post for decades and are now “blown” or declared), have resorted to talking to the media about alleged injustices and human rights violations occurring at the very highest level of our church.

I couldn’t think with this approach.  I considered this an obvious violation of Church policy …reflecting badly not only on The Church, but worst of all, dragging Scientology and LRH’s name through the mud.

This has been very upsetting to me and I’m sure to you too.  My consideration has always been, if there are disagreements of church policy and programs or injustices, then, the thing to do is handle it on the correct lines and within the group using Scientology Ethics and our Justice System.

As I began to check into this, I discovered that these terminals did in fact attempt with great persistence and personal sacrifice, to handle these outpoints on the correct lines.  And in many cases their efforts extended over many years and even decades.

Church management’s response has been to discredit them by asserting they suddenly “went bad” and so have declared them as SPs.  The church has even gone further by proceeding to call them apostates, heretics and squirrels and have orchestrated Black PR campaigns to affect their destruction.

Apparently, each had concluded that there was no justice available and no change/correction forthcoming under current church management.  But instead of keeping quiet as ordered, they eventually resorted to going public in the media and courts rather than just letting it go, or going away—silenced.

This situation of course has made it increasingly difficult for me as a front lines disseminator in the WISE Sector over the past 29 years to do my job and contribute to our mission of a cleared planet – it makes it hard, really, near impossible for all of us to forward our purpose.  Currently the public’s perception of the Church of Scientology is the worst it’s been in our history! This is from my personal experiences of having done thousands of Handle Steps on Raw Public over these many years, and still do in PT as a front-lines disseminator and Power FSM.

It has become a glaring outpoint of the obvious disappearance over the last several years at international events of our senior church leadership/executives.  For example the many senior and veteran Int Execs and WDC members, and CMO Execs including our President, Heber Jentzsch, Ken Hoden, Norman Starkey, Janet Light, Guillaume Lesevre, Ray Mitoff, Mark Yeager, Greg Wilhere, Karen Hollander, Diana Horwich – Hubbard, and even David Miscavige’s brother and father Ronnie Miscavige Jr. and Ron Miscavige Sr. and so many more. Oh yes, Guillaume Lesevre did speak at an event some months back but not as ED INT, and is now absent from the scene once again.

Ever increasingly, veteran SO staff who have served faithfully for decades seem to disappear for years and then curiously re-appear; out, off staff and in many cases declared and now resorting to telling their horrific stories of physical abuse and injustice to the media.

Interestingly (outpoint), the attacks through the media (even the ones we hear about in Europe) in recent years and months are not coming from the real SPs on this planet, the international bankers and their government agencies, the CIA, Interpol, etc and their lapdog controlled media they use to forward their Black PR.  NO, the attacks are coming from the Media, but with who’s data?  Mostly from ex-church staff, especially SO members and high profile public Scientologists who have had to resort to the media and to the courts for the purpose of seeking justice and correction, but mainly to expose the crimes of top leadership in our church, namely David Miscavige.

Why do all the attacks in the media seem to be coming from within; ex-members and ex-SO staff members?  What/who is creating this horrific out-PR situation and poisoning the church’s image?  Why is the public perception of Scientology at an all-time low, even though we are supposedly doing more public outreach programs than ever before?  Why is the media and the entertainment industry incessantly and increasingly making a mockery of and holding up to public ridicule Scientology celebrities, our Church, Scientology and LRH?

Scientology is now a household word, not because of its good works publicized but is sadly now because of the human rights violations and atrocities being committed and condoned at the very top level of church management.

There comes a time when allegations of Senior Sea Org Management Terminals who were speaking out could no longer be ignored.  SO terminals who I respected and admired over the past 35 years, including Mike Rinder, CO OSA, Debbie Cook, CO FSO, Mark “Marty” Rathburn, Inspector General RTC, Vicki Aznaran, ex Pres. & COB, RTC, Marketing Execs: Steven Hall, Jeff Hawkins, veteran FSO registrar, Hy Levy, LRH Trained Class XII, Karen de La Carriere Jentzsch and many more including former FSO CL XIIs and CL VII Auditors & CS’s have come forth and told their experiences of outrageous suppressive behavior from Int Execs including mostly David Miscavige.

There are many more senior execs at the highest level of our church who have “blown” and have been effectively silenced.  There are many high profile celebrities including Paul Haggis, film producer/director, Lisa Marie Presley, Larry Anderson (orientation film) Michael Fairman, Dianetics TV Spokesperson, Jason Beghe, actor and many more who are “out” – some silent but many others blowing the whistle.

ARE ALL OF THESE PEOPLE REALLY SPs??

HCOPL 15 March 1977, DS 41, Evaluation: The Situation

A few relevant excerpts from this policy:

a) – “Back of wrong data you will normally find an impure intent.”

b) – “Now any time you find thirty people on staff being removed because they were suppressive, you know they had the wrong Why, because the percentages are wrong. … I can assure you they’ve left the suppressive on the staff and I can also assure you the guy that did it was suppressive.”

c) – “CLOUDING UP A SITUATION – Occasionally you’ll find a scene wherein a person’s or area’s PR is greater to him than production – PR, personal PR, means more than production.  And that is a characteristic of a suppressive.  He’ll fog the situation up with big PR about how good it is so it can’t be handled.” -LRH

You might ask yourself; Who is causing all this Internal Strife, creating all these enemies, all this hate that the media loves to report on?  I know I have asked myself these questions.  If any of this concerns you (and it should) go to my attachment and read 31 Factors for Scientologists to Consider.

“There are people who suppress. They are few. They often rise up to being in charge and then all things decay. They are essentially psychopathic personalities.  Such want position in order to kill. …They arrived when they arrived, in charge of things, because nobody when they were on their way up said ‘No’.  They are monuments to the cowards, the reasonable people who didn’t put period to them while they were still only small bullies and still vulnerable.”  HCO P/L 7 December 1969 Ethics, The Design of (OEC Vol. 1, p. 483)

Every OUTPOINT or SITUATION that you or I can observe can be explained, clarified or be backed up by an LRH Reference or LRH References and this can be successfully done without taking said references out of context to apply to these Outpoints or Situations.

PLANETARY DISEMMINATION ORG:

I have been wondering about the big broad Div 6 Dissemination Campaigns that we have all been hearing about at Int Events by COB for years.  These would flood the Orgs and Missions with brand new public.

Over a year ago, I was briefed (regged) by Planetary Dissemination Senior Fundraiser, Rudy Kempner.  He told me that we were very close to securing a huge $1 Billion PR & Marketing Campaign, that as a complete package it was only going to cost the Church $100 Million.  He just needed me to donate $5K.  This all sounded great to me!  Wow!  This would be a dream come true and I shared my excitement by briefing many of you about this.

Of course this has never happened.  Sure, I’ve seen a few of the PR ads, and PSAs, (mostly at Int Events).  The problem is, even if there was big volumes of these in the media, they don’t align with what LRH says about marketing “Books make Booms…” (DMSMH), and he was not talking about all the Basic Books in raw publics hands, or in libraries.  We hear about the millions of website hits, and all the “public reaches”, but why are the Orgs and Missions not flooded with New Raw Public?  Don’t believe me, go to your local orgs and missions and look, and not just at existing Div 2 public on Basics.  Where are the floods of New Public?  Who’s stopping the Big Broad Raw Public Dissemination Campaigns that we so desperately need to boom all the New Ideal Orgs?

And besides all this, LRH clearly states, “Word of mouth is a superior form of advertising to newspapers, radio and TV ads. People tend to believe their friends.”  HCO/PL PR SERIES 41

Is this (good and positive word of mouth) really possible in this current environment?

I have heard some say: “The public is out-ethics” or “PTS”, “The society has degraded and that’s why we don’t see floods of raw public…” as an explanation for why there are so few new public on lines.

“All right.  As far as the state of the organization is concerned, this organization of Scientologists will be as successful as it communicates, one with another – and not necessarily into a central office – but as successful as it communicates, one with another about its problems and antipathies and demonstrates these into a reality and says what’s going on and discusses it and keeps together, you might say, as an understanding. …

“So there is no barrier in Scientology to good communication.  There are no fixed convictions across the boards, one way or the other.  The only thing you’re invited to do is just, please, understand what is going on.  Don’t make a wild guess at it and a fixed conviction and jump down somebody’s throat.

“I have, time after time, restrained the organization and parts of the organization from trying to unmock Scientologists and, just yesterday, restored the certificates of a fellow who’s evidently been quite wronged by another organizational member in Australia.  Why?  They’ve both got good intentions, I sent them cables and told them to talk.  It’ll all work out.

“There is no organizational trouble we can’t solve.  But there is a world situation that will remain unsolved right down to the last whimper unless we stay together, work together and do something about it.”   LRH – 4th London ACC, The Role of a Scientologist, 27 October 1955

I lay full responsibility for this gross corruption of out-tech and illegal policy development and implementation directly at the door step of RTC but moreover and specifically with COB David Miscavige.

“It is more than policy that one gets the condition he fails to correctly and promptly assign and enforce.

It’s a sort of natural law. If you let your executives goof off and stay in, let us say, a Danger condition, yet you don’t assign and enforce one, they will surely put YOU in a Danger condition whether it gets assigned or not.

Remember that when your finger falters “on the trigger.”

(HCOPL 30 Oct 67-I, CONDITIONS, HOW TO ASSIGN, OEC Vol 1, p. 566ff)

Of course, predictably, for speaking out like this, there will now be a full blown concerted effort by the church (OSA) to orchestrate a smear campaign against me and trump up all manner of false charges of “suppression” on my behalf and proceed to Declare, and Expel Me – all in an effort to silence me and disconnect me.

That’s okay. I will not be stopped from doing my Bridge or from supporting and defending LRH and his legacy – and will not be stopped from forwarding my purpose of helping people with Scientology.  And one day, my sincere hope is – that sooner rather than later, we will all get our Church of Scientology back and then we can restore LRH’s legacy, and his aims and goals together.

Dear friends, please ask yourself this question:  Is it really possible to go full OT and reach true spiritual freedom in this environment, when day by day the Tech and Policy that LRH worked so hard for, and devoted his life’s work to, is being chipped away, little by little, altered, perverted and even reversed (see Black Dianetics) in very subtle ways and on a very subtle gradient?  This trend is not reverting but only accelerating over the years.  Let’s end this madness!

After much consideration, deliberation and evaluation over the past few weeks and realizing that I can no longer support Church Management or those who support it, I have decided to withdraw my support for current Church Management and am hereby announcing my resignation and disconnection from The current Church of Scientology led by David Miscavige and all those who support him.

My Goal Finder is LRH.

Today I join the world wide group called, ‘Independent Scientologists’ where honest, on source, LRH technology is being delivered by some of the highest trained, On Source Auditors and CS’s (CLVIIs, CL XIIs)  per KSW.  And where exposing the out tech and criminal activities of the current Church of Scientology Management is the order of the day.

AM I PTS?  NOT ANY LONGER!

Best wishes.

Scientology Inc. Private Eyes Come Clean

The Tampa Bay Times has published a rather startling expose’,  Scientology Inc. Private Eyes Come Clean.

Notice that David Miscavige’s denials confirm pretty much the entire story.

When Paul and Greg asked CO OSA INT (Linda Hammill, head of Scientology Inc.’s intelligence operation) what the church was going to do when I exposed this operation in 2009 to the Times (see, segment ‘Spying on Pat Broeker’ at Marty Rathbun Tampa Times videos), she said that David Miscavige’s plan was to “blame it on Marty.”   Greg and Paul knew then and there that Miscavige and his crime syndicate had lost any sense it might have once had.

Incidentally, this week Greg and Paul helped a documentary film crew video an ongoing Scientology Inc. electronic surveillance operation in my current neighborhood.

The Mystique of Casablanca

Why do you suppose David Miscavige has Private Eyes crawling around Casablanca like cockroaches of late?   Here is one particularly obvious one a couple days ago:

Could it be the presence of Paul Marrick, Greg Arnold, Tony Ortega, and three unidentified film makers as seen here?

Or might it be today’s visitor roster, including Lucy James, Steve Hall, Mark Shreffler, and Haydn James?

Stay tuned for answers.  In the meantime, worry not, the forces of evil are outnumbered.

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.
