Title: Scientology on TV
Post by: Ididntcomeback on March 24, 2009, 03:20:38 AM
A German TV show did an item on scientology.
Here is the transcript in English.

                               PART ONE

Kerner: Good evening and welcome to all of you!

The film start of Tom Cruise's "Operation Valkyrie"and the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of John Travolta's son have brought the discussion on Scientology more to the forefront again, in recent times. Is this actually a sort of threat for our society, is it a dangerous cult or is it, let's say, a harmless faith community? What lies behind Scientology? My guests know. Example given the journalist Philip Mattheis who infiltrated Scientology for 10 days in a self-test. I'm also looking forward to talk to the jorunalist-expert, to the journalist and cult-expert Frank Nordhausen, I'm going to talk to Wilfried Handl, who left Scientology after 28 years having been in there, including in leading positions, I welcome religious scientist Dr. Gerhard Willms and I'm looking forward to talking to Dr. G?nther Beckstein, bavarian interior minister -formerly- and also former minister president. Welcome to all of you!

(Applause)

Kerner: And, as ought to be done, we also invited Scientologists to take part in our show. Given the free choice to either answer our questions or talk to us outside or even live, inside this studio, they decided against it. This interview, which had been an appointment, was cancelled by them a few hours before. And, as you see, there's also an empty seat here at the studio, where the spokesperson or even the head of Scientology Germany was supposed to be seated. The seat is empty, maybe they'll come, but judging from our previous experience, the probability is pretty low. But this doesn't stop us from discussing the mystery of Scientology.

[video segment:] Scientology- the association, which is calling itself a church, is classified as a cult by the Office for Protection of the Constitution and has been under observation since 1997.
Celebration in Berlin- solemn opening of the german central of Scientology at the beginning of 2007. At the center of it there is Dianetics, the teaching by L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. According to Hubbard, humanity was brought to earth 75 million years ago by a galactic ruler, put into volcanoes and then blown up by hidrogen bombs. Who wants to redeem the souls of the dead, has to undergo a sort of "brainwashing".
[Scientology Video:] "Trust. Trust. Trust."
Scientology has magic attraction in Hollywood too. Its most famous adherent is Tom Cruise. In Germany there are about 6000 followers of Scientology. The organization tries to recruit members by using info-tables and leaflets. Meanwhile, resistance builds up on the internet. The opponents of Scientology mobilize forces.
[Anons:] "No Scientology! No Scientology!"
[Anon Video: "We have therefore decided that your organization should be destroyed"]

Kerner: This doesn't sound too peaceful either, so let's dare to take on the topic now. Mr. Handl, you were a Scientologist, for 28 years, would you explain to us why noone followed up on our invitation to discuss with us here?

Handl: I just want to say, there's a reasoning behind this... maybe a short explanation: You can't talk to Scientologists as such, as if you'd say: "Well, there is Scientologist X and I would like to talk to him" this doesn't happen. So, if you'd try this, he would immediatley go to the so-called Office of Special Affairs, which is Ms. Sabine Weber, Vice-President of Scientology and this Office of Special Affairs is, if you like to put it this way, Scientology's intelligence agency, this means you are only able to meet the same one, two, three people, with which you could talk. And let me say, I can understand well, so to speak, from Scientology's perspective, that they don't do this, they certainly have... if you had invited three representatives, three members of this scientologic intelligence agency, then they would be here.

Kerner: Ok, but we simply intended to let them have their say and have an open discussion. And to me this of course does create a certain impression, when someone isn't interested in talking, with fair treatment guaranteed, that he has to hide something.

Handl: Yes, but that's not possible at all with Scientologists. Scientologists... every Scientologist has the virtual duty to report it immediately at this Office of...

Kerner: Why, no, they can report it, I'd have no problem with this, but they can come here anyway.

Handl: No, sadly that's impossible with Scientologists.

Kerner: So... just to state this once more, at the beginning we were under the impression -and we've been in contact with them for weeks- that they are ready for a discussion, then the phone conversations slightly changed, in style, also in tone, it all became a bit more brisk and a bit more strange, then there were demands, which became increasingly unrealistic. So, whatever we did, whenever you had just come to an agreement, along came the next demand to make it impossible again. Is this some sort of trick?

Handl: Yes, that's the strategy. Well, you may not forget one thing: Well, Scientology considers journalists in general to be enemies and of course there's a corresponding way of acting and as long as [you] hadn't allowed Scientology to do a virtual propaganda show...

Kerner: Well, one can't go that far, I'm very sorry, that we can't...

Handl: You may not forget, Scientology thinks completely different, they apply different standards...

Kerner: And we're trying to approach that way of thought, to understand what happens there and we are very interested in hearing your reports from the 28 years that you have spent in Scientology. Mr. Beckstein, if one was to try to describe Scientology -I don't want to do a quizshow with you- but when the alternatives are: Church, cult, economic corporation or political organization, which one would you consider to be correct?

Beckstein: I'm convinced that this is an economic corporation, which is cloaked as a church and which is massively aiming for the goal of gaining economic and political power. All this not with a human conception of a self-determined, free human being, who could face a transparent discussion -our previous topic- in which you could say: "What is Scientology in detail? What are you doing?" and which is also ready to face public and transparent criticism, but it is about a system and this system wants another sort of human, the system of scientology does indeed plan for those that have been cleared to have all the rights and all the others are considered to be criminal and have no rights at all. And this was the reason that I considered it appropriate, in my function as interior minister back then, to state: This is an entirely different human conception from that of the constitution, it is a totalitarian organization, so it has to be under observation by the Office for the Protection of the Constitution.

Kerner: Alright. That is happening since 1997. It didn't come to a ban however, this could be considered a sign as well, maybe the procedures for a ban aren't welcome, because the danger would be too large that it wouldn't pass through the appropriate courts.

Beckstein: Our democracy is so generous and wide, that also organizations, which violate the constitution are allowed. This can be seen by the existence of extreme right-wing and left-wing parties, which don't get banned.
A ban would prerequesite, that the organization fights in an agressive militant manner against the free democratic basic order. In particular acts of violence. But i have no knowledge of any acts of violence from Scientology.

Kerner: If any, then rather inwards than outwards.

Beckstein: That massive coercion takes place internally is something which my colleagues had told me, which is why i had initiated an investigation a few years ago, but it didn't come this far.

Kerner: We have heard several terms now. "Clear" is something, which will be explained later in the show. This is a status, that can be achieved by doing certain courses.
The former bavarian prime minister is innately a lawyer. You formulate this with caution but of course also well-informed and you say, that Scientology is not a church.
We have Dr. Willms as a guest. The man is a sociologist of religion and you say, it is a religion. How do you come to this conclusion?

Willms: For once the notion "sect" is not being used anymore in the sociology of religion. It simply doesn't exist anymore. If it is being used, then only in spoken quotes. We talk about "new religious movements" in general and would put Scientology in this category, too.

Kerner: Who did use the notion "sect"? Did our christian churches rather use this notion?

Willms: It has gained popularity through its application by the christian churches. It is in principle older and existed already in the ancient world. This was about the philosophical schools. Someonewho followed a different philosophical school was a sectarian, was part of a sect as it was called at that time already. It has become popular in the understanding of christian churches.

Kerner: Would you say, that there is too much concern about Scientology? There are just a few thousand Scientologists. Calculated only 0.07 % of the population in Germany, if the numbers are correct?

Willms: Yes, i would definitively say that.

Kerner: You are not a Scientologist yourself?

Willms: No.

Kerner: Alright. I mean, one can openly ask that.

Willms: Yes and i would also openly tell you so, if i were a Scientologist.

Handl: Could you imagine being one?

Willms: No. Well, i have read all of Hubbard's literature and have been asked before, if i wouldn't be tempted to give it a try. But to be honest, i am not tempted.

Nordhausen: Why do you even concern yourself with Scientology as a scholar of religion? Scientology has nothing to do with religion after all?

Willms: You may see it like that. There are enough religious elements in Scientology, so that religious scholars call it a religion. There are ideas of reincarnation and similar things, which are part of it. There is a (?berpositiver?) set of beliefs. How seriously it is then taken in general by individual persons is something we are not concerned with. There are simply these (?berpositive) elements of reincarnation and so forth.

Kerner: Something which a lot of people are wondering about is that you can become especially "good" in Scientology. "Clear" in particular, if you spend a lot of money. How can that be? Because we have rather the conception, that you can not buy spiritual salvation. Apart from church tax. But you cannot purchase salvation itself.

Willms: Well I don't know exactly, why it has to cost that much. But to think that something can't be a religion, when it does business is a misconception typical of continental europe. In America, every religion has to make money to survive as a religion,

Kerner: As their is no church tax, no automatic one.

Willms: Exactly, because there doesn't exist what we have here. A comparatively close connection, even though we have an official separation of state and church of course. But you know who collects the church tax. It's the state and the churches of course do profit very substantially from this system and because of this they still have this perspective of rulership.

Kerner: Ok, so you would say, Scientology is a church? A religion?

Willms: Well, the term isn't protected. I mean, they do call themselves a church. As a religious scientist, I would say, that it's a little senseless to use the term "church" outside of christianity. But you can't prevent them from doing it.

Kerner. Ok, with the arguments that you have named. Mr. Handl who was a member for 28 years, says: "If Scientology is a church, the mafia is a church too." What makes you think that?

Handl: Basically, when you take a look at it, without intending to step on the mafia's toes, but in sicily, I would say, the mafia is indeed considered to be something, which shapes the social surroundings, where you aren't confronted with drug labortatories or drug carriers non-stop, but that, which is wanted by part of the population. And I don't want to step on the sicilians' toes either. And when you take a look at Scientology, you have to look at the entire history. L. Ron Hubbard is the founder of Scientology and registered three churches in 1954. While we're at it, I have to add that this is incredibly easy in America. You have to make a difference between Europe and America. In America, everyone who claims to be a church or a religion, may do so. Under the same abbreviation, COS, as in Church of Scientology, there is also the Church of Satan. That's no problem if you say, Satan is my god, I'll go register myself as a church and receive tax exemption. This means, that it works incredibly easy. And with this, not to paint a wrong picture of the mafia, that is basically the comparison.

Kerner: Oh well, but you also intend the comparison as a statement to the effect of: It is a criminal organization.

Handl: I would say: Extremely criminal. Concerning the individual individually. For me the vital point is that the individual has no possibility of self-development. This is especially extreme of course in the case of youths, with children, especially with children of Scientologists. They are being forced into one conception, of course one could remark at this point that this happens in other places too. True, but not entirely. There, in Scientology, you don't stand a chance, you have no possibility. The only possibility, if you say: "I part ways with Scientology", it also means that you part ways with your parents, your siblings, you are not allowed to have any more contact.

Kerner: Mr. Beckstein, you are known to be someone who has always been very candid about his opinion in this matter.
Have you ever been threatened by them? Have you ever felt persecuted by them?

Beckstein: It is obvious that there is the goal of leading the dispute in an offensive manner. Something, that I felt uneasy about, was to be portrayed as a perpetrator of violence against the "good" religion, in full page ads in american newspapers. Of course the question of "legal proceedings" time and again becomes important when dealing with Scientology. You get quickly threatened with lawsuits, which may also lead to economic problems if there are several of them. There never was an immediate physical threat to me.

Kerner: Mr. Nordhausen, you are an expert on Scientology, you are no Scientologist and you are dealing with the topic in a very critical fashion. Could you please explain to us the meaning of these terms? Could you explain to me what "clear" means?

Nordhausen: "Clear" is supposed to mean that you are a completely freed human, which is freed from all resistances and who example given isn't susceptible to a cold as Hubbard has written. Some also believe that you can't get cancer anymore afterwards and other similar beliefs and this is certainly something which makes this attractive.

Kerner: Conversely speaking, is a cold always a sign, that I'm not entirely clear yet?

Nordhausen: Well, I wouldn't look at it this way. Well... in case of... no, well, no I wouldn't look at it this way.

Kerner: At the beginning you do a so called "auditing", there's the word "listening" contained in there somehow. What is this "auditing" about?

Nordhausen: Well, the auditing isn't placed at the beginning. At the beginning there are, expamle given, communication courses, in which they state: You learn to communicate better here. Actually, you learn the exact opposite, to attack people, you learn for example to scream at ashtrays, these proceedings actually turn you into a human being, that is not supposed to be human anymore. This means, you are only supposed to function well, to become like a robot, to get rid of your core. That's it.

Kerner: You learn to scream at ashtrays in order to scream at people as a next step?

Nordhausen: Yes, that's exactly what it is about. Mr. Handl certainly has experienced this himself and also done this himself. It's part of the scientologic program. Only later does auditing come into the picture. The auditing is the actual brainwashing in Scientology, where the person is shaped to a new way of thinking, new types of concepts etc. Let me say something really quickly in regards to the discussion about "religion" as my neighbour talked about it. Something being a religion doesn't necessarily imply that something is good. Well, there is religion... in past times, or it's still in existence, there were temple sacrifices. There is temple prostitution, burning of widows. And I think there is no controversy that Al Qaida or, let's take the califate state as an exapmle, that it is a religious organization. And still it was banned. And exactly the same is possible with Scientology.

(Applause)

Post by: Ididntcomeback on March 24, 2009, 03:23:33 AM
                                  PART TWO

Beckstein: The philosophy indeed doesn't state that man is a self-determined, free being, which may develop itself and which may decide for themselves, but eventually man is a special machine, which can be programmed and which has to be programmed. And, if it is programmed in an optimal way, then it is another man, a Clear, then he has abilities normal humans haven't,...

Kerner: And then he doesn't get a cold, right?

Beckstein: Well, whether, the cold, I don't want to give a statement on that. But, anyway, he has more abilities than others and he is the one, one has to strive for and these are the people who shape the future scientologist society and who doesn't have it, eventually doesn't have any rights.

Kerner: And all in all... the intent is to take over?

Beckstein: Of course. And it's not difficult to prove that there are attempts to gather influence on politics, influence on large economic organizations. And because of this there is a demand for the state to take action with the observation by the Office for Protection of the Constitution, so you can at least see what develops in that area. And maybe also to educate people on what expects them there.

Kerner: Mr. Handl, did you scream at ashtrays?

Handl: Of course. Well, basically it's like what Mr. Nordhausen already alluded to, especially this communication course, which happens at the beginning and actually sounds incredibly harmless, it serves to condition the individual, which means you are being drilled -literally- because you have to imagine: I didn't just scream at an ashtray, I did it for hours.

Kerner: What do you scream then?

Handl: Stand up, sit down.

Kerner: But... the ashtray.

Handl: Of course no ashtray can do that, even Scientology knows that much, so you help him. But, this isn't simply about, how to put it, the effect of ridicule, so you can say: Oh, look there's someone saying "Get up, sit down!" at an ashtray, but when you have done this for hours... well, afterwards I went with a friend -like people in Vienna like to do- for a coffee, and he told me about something, which I wasn't especially fond of hearing and then I told him to stop speaking in a way that made him turn completely pale. And that is what is being trained with these excercises. This means that Scientologists are basically turned extremely to the direction of doing something with other people against their will. Well, you may compare it a bit to, everyone has seen this one time or the other, you may compare it to the training of an american GI, which is, in comparison, outright soft.

Kerner: You mean when military talk becomes a little more sturdy.

Handl: Exactly.

Kerner: Mr. Mattheis, as part of a journalistic self-experiment at Scientology you have ,well, people say "infiltrated" let's put it a little less spectacular: you took part in it. How did you protect yourself beforehand, so that you would not end up in the clutches anyway and maybe say on the 9th day: "Oh, I think I'm going to stay here."

Mattheis: This was simply due to the fact that I wanted to write about it. This created a sort of distance to what I went through each day. In addition to this, I talked with friends about my experiences every day. Most of the time that was so crazy, that everyone laughed and so I had to laugh myself too.

Kerner: So, that danger wasn't there, actually?

Mattheis: I didn't actually sense it, no.

Kerner: And you considered it a journalistic self-experiment?

Mattheis: Just that. Back then I was still at the journalism school and we produced a graduate magazine, and its topic was "Mistakes" and I just wanted to consciously make a mistake and so I said: "Ok, I'll just go to Scientology for 10 days"

Kerner: This happened in Munich, didn't it?

Mattheis: It was in Munich, right.

Kerner: Would you take us with you in there, again? You went in there and said: "Hello, my name is Mattheis. I'd like to join you." Or how does that work?

Mattheis: Yes, it's actually pretty much like that. Well, the central, the Dianetics centre in Munich, that's at the M?nchner Freiheit in Schwabing, that's a very central place. Well, I went in there, said "I'm interested in it" and... then it went relatively quickly. There was a friendly young man at the entrance and then we sat together in front of this e-meter, did this test and then I also watched a DVD about L. Ron Hubbard, this took about 45 minutes, that was some sort of recruitment video.

Kerner: Now that you mention the "e-meter", we got it here of course, soon we'll look really close at what happens with it and what is the background of this story, Mr. Handl will be able to explain this to us in detail. Maybe you could tell us one more time: So the people were very friendly to you.

Mattheis: Hm-mh. [agreement]

Kerner: And they said: "Hey, that's great that a young person comes along and is interested". You did feel good, at least on that one level.

Mattheis: Well, it's a little too much to say I felt good, in part it is, there always was something weird about it (Kerner: Hm-mh [agreement]), but like I said, people were very nice, very open, actually all those that I met there.

Kerner: Hm-mh. [agreement] And what was the result as you sat there at this e-meter?

Mattheis: Hm, it's difficult to talk about "results", well, the theory is that the Scientologists are able to locate traumatic experiences which are stored in the unconscious and this happens when you grab these diodes that are in front of you...

Kerner: These?

Mattheis: Exactly, and you use both your hands...

Kerner: Sort of like two cans of "Red Bull"

Mattheis: Yeah, exactly.

Kerner: By the way, there's nothing in there either.

Handl: No gulp.

Kerner: Sure.

Mattheis: Then I was asked some questions and there is a sort of needle at the e-meter and it reacts to certain answers.

Kerner: That's how you put it up, right?

Nordhausen: What's important, only the guy who interrogates you can see that. So the guy who has the cans in his hands, doesn't see what's happening there.

Kerner: Sure, but we're completely open here. Everyone can see everything here, after all we got nothing to hide. So this is such an e-meter. Is this a very complicated technical device?

Handl: I would say: No. Well, actually it was developed at the end of the 19th century, I think by some guy named Eindhoven or something similar. It's a skin resistance measurement device, it measures changes in the skin resistance. At the beginning of the 20th century C.G. Jung did experiments with it as well, but he pretty much got rid of it, because he found ot that there's no results from this, right? At the beginning of the 1950s it was sort of re-discovered by [Warney Mettison], he used it as a party device and he sort of used it for amusement, you could play some little games with it, however, like I said, it wasn't important to him what the results were. The decisive part about the entire thing for L. Ron Hubbard was that it is incredibly spectacular.

Kerner: Oh, really.

Handl: And that's, when you look at it, especially in a world that is relatively faithful when it comes to technology, that's incredibly impressive when someone acts very secretive, and Scientology has created a huge conception of interpretation around it. (Kerner: Ok.) And I have to state one thing right at the start: L. Ron Hubbard stated already at the beginning of the 1960s: "The e-meter never lies". This means, what the e-meter says is the truth. To explain it in a very simplified fashion: If the needle, that is on there, goes to the right, then the e-meter says: Yes, there is something. If it goes to the left, then no. This means, if I was to ask you: "Are you actually a woman?" and you answer with all of your conviction: "No, of course not!"...

Kerner: I would have said "How do you know about that?"

Handl: Or whatever you say, it doesn't matter at all. If the e-meter says: "Yes he is"

Kerner: Then I'm a woman.

Handl: Then you're a woman.

Kerner: yeah, ok.

Handl: No chance.

Kerner: If you turn the device on, does it do anything, do I feel a little electrical current or what?

Handl: Nope, nothing happens.

Kerner: Would you... you've done it often enough... how often did you do such a thing, sitting at the e-meter with people, on the Scientologists' side?

Handl: Well, I would say, that was already in the 70s that it happened more often, i.e. for hours, often. And from my point of view the most important part is, that the other person has to stay and wait, which message he's going to receive from me.

Kerner: Could you do this with me? We don't know each other, I'm no Scientologist either, I just would like to know what goes on there. So ask me any question, I'll answer, maybe truthful.

Handl: This is basically a very simple procedure. You ask the other person questions....

Kerner: Is it on already?

Handl: You would have to plug it in. So we're only going to do it almost in the right way. It basically goes like this: There are prepared lists. The most despicable of the entire affair are the so called security checks, this means you get asked questions such as: "How often do you think about beautiful women each day?" And of course you are going to say, especially while on TV: "Well, I don't at all."

Kerner: But I do, I do, I do! I do, I do, I do. Yes, of course. Look at the audience here, I'm sorry, but we're only men here, you have to look at the audience once in a while. (Applause) So I would say: "Yes, from time to time."

Handl: Good. Now of course you look at the e-meter and it says: "Ok, see, there's something." E-meter says yes. Then let's investigate this thing a bit deeper: How do you think of the ladies? Could you say something about this?

Kerner: Yeah, most of the times I'm thinking of the heads, that may be boring, I also think of my wife. Or is this unspectacular.

Handl: No, no, you may do this, sure.

Kerner: But I also look for example at the audience and there are some very attractive people there.

Handl: Ok, it's bad luck for you, the e-meter says again: "Yes, there's still more"

Kerner: Oh.

Handl: This means the Scientologist would now go about saying: Ok, you have to go into a little more detail: What exactly are you thinking in such cases, example given about your wife. What are you imagining? Tell me everything you like.

Kerner: Then I say, she got great hair and I imagine how my hand is running through her hair and how I'm kissing her.

Handl: Well, the e-meter still isn't happy, or the Scientologist, let's put it rather that way. And he says: Ok, a little more detail.

Kerner: Then I'm going to sit here for hours...

Handl: ...it may be printed in any newspaper.

Kerner: Exactly. So you know a lot about me within a short span of time. Why do you want to know this and how can you make use of it? What does it do to you, that you know that I'm running my fingers through my wife's hair?

Handl: Exactly. That's the trick with this entire thing. It means that Scientology creates the transparent human. This means that, as long as you are in Scientology, nothing happens. I would say, there is a mountain of such a height about me. And there are a lot of Scientologists that have even taller mountains. As long as someone is in Scientology, nothing happens. But when someone leaves Scientology then people look into these mountains of files in order to -example given, you won't be angry that I say this- if I know about you that you think this or that in regards to sexuality or women, then it will be used against you.

Kerner: It's being published, told to my wife...

Handl: it's being spread and on and on and on. That's what Scientology is actually using these data for.

Kerner: Did you do such things as well and were you responsible for them happening as the head of Scientology in Austria?

Handl: I myself didn't do it, but I've experienced it often enough, that in my area so to speak, such things happened and it happened to myself after I left. It wasn't that "heavy", because well you know, in principle I had been a good boy, you know, Austrians... but I know about others in whose cases that, which has been found out about them, is being used against that person, in a targeted manner.

Kerner: To be honest, we don't want to take this too seriously, because this sounds as if something actually would happen here. Well, the device had not been turned on.

Handl: No, no, exactly, this has to be added.

Kerner: So it wasn't turned on, but in all honesty, my trust to this box is relatively limited. Mr. Willms, do you find something like this interesting, do you believe that something may be measured with it? Is this of interest for you as a religious scientist?

Willms: As a "religious device", if you'd like to call it that, or as a technology, it is very interesting, but not with regards to what it actually shows in the end. It is simply an indication that Scientology is comparatively close to modern society, because they use such technical instruments and don't run around with a magic stick anymore or with a divining-rod.

Kerner: Well, but the divining-rod isn't widely in use e.g. in our christian churches either, if I may say so. People wear crosses there and...

Beckstein: But, with regards to clearly more progressive technology, something similar exists in the area of the lie-detector, when you measure humidity during a question or change of pulse or heartbeat and by this you can draw conclusions, whether someone is nervous...

Kerner: changing emotions...

Beckstein: It's something similar to that, but in a very simple form.

Kerner: Ok. But this box is today in use worldwide. This is the E-Meter, this is the original- there is no other device, there's nothing that is more current, that's it. Wait a moment, Mr. Handl, because I just would like to get to a point now, because in the audience is our guest Ingo Heinemann from the federal association for cult advise. Mr. Heinemann, many years ago you saw to it that a scientific inquiry of this box took place. I'm going to open it. Could you tell us about the results of this scientific examination and who did this scientific examination?

Heinemann: Yes, that was done back then by the psychological institute of the University of T?bingen, which examined it with regards to technical and psychological considerations. With regards to technical considerations they found out that it may be very dangerous -however this refered to the model that was in use back then- also that it is quiet primitive and with regards to its effect they established that it does not do what it is supposedly able to do at all. With regards to the whole thing you have to add one remark as a matter of course: You yourself may construct this box, including its content, at a price of 20 euros, when it's constructed professionally the costs may be at 100 Euros and it was recently sold at a price, if I remember correctly, of about 6500 Euros.

Nordhausen: More expensive. 8500.

Kerner: By now the cost is at 8000.

Nordhausen: The luxury version.

Heinemann: So there are crazy costs, already from this it can be concluded that something is wrong with it.

Kerner: But technically speaking. Well, this can't do anything basically, can it? ... Actually it can't do anything technically, it looks like, I'm not a technician, so I can only say, there are a few wires, it might look like a transistor radio from the early 70s, but...

Heinemann: It can only measure the voltage at the skin surface, but it can't register... "to measure" is the wrong term anyway in this context, it may register, well it simply shows movement of the needle. The Scientologists claim, that this needle movement means, depending on the question, either "yes" or "no" as an answer. And this is exactly, said the psychological institute of the University of T?bingen, and this is exactly what it does not do. And so the entire system that Scientology has built onto that falls into pieces, because this e-meter is supposed to help locating negative impressions in the soul -well, they call them engrams- and then they are supposed to go away by finding them, that's why there are all the expenses, right? And that's why there are all these expensive procedures. It can't do any of this.

Kerner: Ok, it is a cheap box that is being sold at an extremely over-expensive cost and it obviously, at least with regards to technical considerations, doesn't implement any function, at least not the function that is being promised. Did you expect this, Mr. Mattheis, when you took a seat at it, at the other side?

Mattheis: Well, I didn't get the feeling that it did impress me in any way due to excellent performance. It was more of a... so I saw a needle, which was moving around.

Kerner: And the questions were like Mr. Handl said?

Mattheis: Yes, similar. Yes.

Kerner: So this means, that it turned relatively quickly to personal issues, to private and intimate topics?

Mattheis: ...Yes.

Nordhausen: By the way, skilled Scientologists are able to manipulate the device. You can, by pressing the cans harder or less hard, influence the needle, Mr. Handl will be able to confirm this. The former, one of the top ex-members in Germany has told me this, Gunter Tr?ger, and he was that good in it... and more recently another ex-member, Mr. Markert, he also mentioned that you may well be able to manipulate this, if you've been long enough in Scientology and if you've basically seen through the system to such an extent that you may even use it to your own ends.

Kerner: You also were shown these videos by L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. Did you feel moved by this in any way or did you rather consider it ridiculous?

Mattheis: Me, personally, not at all, because the entire time it was [only] about being more efficient, more diligent, not to be sick any more, to be resistent to stress. So all of this was very, very much focused on performance. There was nothing, let's say, nice or life- well this sounds as if I was opposed to performance, that's not what I want to say, all of it simply was, it was based on such a concept of efficiency in the end.

Kerner: And so you could quickly recognize what it was. We also did see pictures from these videos at the beginning. Did you ever experience the feeling to lose control over yourself?

Mattheis: Well, the only time when I did feel a bit precarious was actually during this auditing. I had this actually before the communication course took place, but this was some sort of test-auditing, I think the purpose was also to show to me what it was like. And that was actually a bit uncanny.

Kerner: Because of what? What happened there?

Mattheis: Hm, one reason for it was that I went into the second floor of the building together with a Scientologist - so I didn't know where we were going to and I also didn't know what happened to me - and then we sat down in a very small room and then she also locked the door. I didn't know why, what's the purpose of also locking the door, and then she asked me to close my eyes and then I was supposed to talk about an experience, which somehow brought up emotions in me. To be frank I was a little anxious and thought to myself "Rather take an event, which isn't that grave" and so I talked about my exam for my driver's license and then I had to, with my eyes closed, I don't know, maybe eight times, I had to recount my exam for the driver's license. This took two hours and this is actually a demanding experience.

Handl: (inaudible)

Kerner: Well, ok, but it is the principle. Why did he have to recount his driver's- I hope you did pass? This just as an aside.

Mattheis: No, I failed! (Kerner: Ah ok) That's why it was a...

Kerner: Yes ok.

Handl: That's why it was a traumatic event.

Kerner: That's why it was traumatic. But what is the meaning of recounting the driver's license exam...

Handl: If you look at the entire story, maybe there is a need to explain a term that was already mentioned, also by Mr. Mattheis: Dianetics is virtually the second brand by Scientology, Scientology has a two-brand strategy and basically has its origins in hypnosis. This means the original system of 1950 was a hypnosis procedure and what is achieved by such behaviour, when you go back to traumatic events: You push someone into something negative. And this means, everyone, I mean if I was to go and take any given person and push him into a negative event in his life and keep him there, then he is at my disposal. And this is, if you want to look at it this way, the main meaning and purpose of this exercise.

Kerner: This doesn't sound very humanitarian and kind.

Handl: In my opinion there is nothing humanitarian or kind about Scientology at all.

Kerner: Did you, as a person, experience changes while being there?

Handl: Yes, I only can... maybe you have to put it this way: I had a lover in my youth, when I was 18, 19 I knew her before Scientology, when I was 20 I joined Scientology and I saw this lady 30 years afterwards again, met with her again and what she realized when she faced me: She was completely knocked off her feet, well she did know that people of course do change in the course of 30 years, but the way in which I had changed, namely lacking feeling, just flaunting around arrogantly, commenting on everything, knowing everything better than all the others. Well she explained this to me in several conversations and she was literally knocked off her feet, realizing what happened to me.

Kerner: Quickly after your entry into the organization, after 5 or 6 years, you became a leading figure within the austrian organization of Scientology and later you also became its head. What were your qualifications for this post? Were you a hardliner, a real hardcore Scientologist?

Handl: Well, even if that's hard for me and even if I don't, how to say it, I'm not proud of it, but I apparently had abilities, which were activated by Scientology. This means, in order to not leave it abstract like that, what I was pretty good at was to "deal" with people, as they say: "leadership", so I had leadership, a certain charisma, and Scientology is incredibly good at, when it comes to policies of employment, well you don't have to serve for years to slowly ascend, but when someone is recognized, when his qualities are being recognized he gets upwards very quickly, but please don't get me wrong, I'm absolutely not proud of having done this.

Kerner: But in the beginning you also paid for the courses?

Handl: Only the first two courses.

Kerner: What did they cost?

Handl: That was relatively cheap, the communication course took -if you calculate it to that currency- not even 100 euros. In Scientology there are two alternatives: The first one, if someone has enough money then he is continued to be milked so to speak and the second variation: If someone has no money then he may become a staff member and gets the courses and the auditing for free.

Kerner: And doesn't get a loan as a staff member or only a little?

Handl: Yes, you put that right, well Scientologists do get, staff members do get a loan, I would put it anywhere between 30 and 40 euros per week, so actually they get no loan, right?

Kerner: Later on, you also worked under these conditions?

Handl: Yes.

Kerner: So you gave all your work force for virtually no money.

Handl: Yes. And you have to look at it that way, a staff member at Scientology...

Kerner: How did you live? How did you pay your appartment and your car, your...

Handl: Either you have a second job or someone who cares for your expenses. And so I had, if you'd like to put it that way, my second job was, I sold countless of those e-meters example given, I sold them to other Scientologists. Then you get between 5 or 15% provision for that, which you sell further.

Kerner: Hm-mh [affirmative]. There's a lot of incoming money, 100 euros is considered a cheap course, it keeps getting more expensive, you say that people with money are also being "milked" there, which means talked into taking courses, which they possibly don't need or don't even want, but you need the money. Where does this money actually go?

Nordhausen: Well, this is of course one of the key questions when it comes to Scientology, what happens with the money. And luckily we're able today to say more about this than circa ten years ago, because by now we know from court proceedings and example given by the work of the Office for the Protection of the Constitution -the organization is also under investigation by the interior intelligence agencies in France and Belgium- and because of this we know example given that between 1988 and 91 around 1.4 billion dollars went to the USA, only from Europe. If you now consider that the number of Scientologists in Europe is far below the number of Scientologists in the USA, then you get pretty high numbers and you're going to have to assume that the amount of money that Scientology states to the american IRS are way too low and... where does the money go to? By now, there are also relatively certain informations on this topic by now, originating from former high-ranking Scientologists. A huge part of the money ends on accounts in Liechtenstein, in Cyprus, in Switzerland and also in several other tax havens.

Kerner: So it is being kept?

Nordhausen: It is being kept and apparently they've also realized that you, Scientology -the comparison with the mafia isn't completely inappropriate after all- Scientology has a huge need to "launder" money so to speak, the incoming money from America for example or incoming money in general and so you build these extraordinarily expansive or you buy these extraordinarily expansive buildings in Europe since approximately five years ago. In Belgium, Brussels the price was at 31 millions, in London 20 million, in Hamburg 20 million and so on.

Kerner: Ok. So, the money goes into buildings (Nordhausen: For example.), mainly because they believe that's the best way to earn money, not only buildings for their own use, but also such that they hire further, whatever. Houses, business so to speak. One of the richest and maybe also one of the most influential Scientologists is the american actor Tom Cruise. In any event he is the most famous Scientologist in the world. His film "Operation Valkyrie" has just started in german movie theaters, it's quite successful. There he acts the part of german hero and resistance fighter Claus Graf Schenk von Stauffenberg. We got a few pictures.

[Report:] Tom Cruise. Magnet for income and public Scientologist. Currently he is on promotion tour for his current film. He even gets the "Bambi for Courage" for "Operation Valkyrie". To what extent Tom Cruise has taken in Scientology's teachings can be seen in the internet:

Cruise: Damn, there is nothing better than going out there and fighting the fight and suddenly you see: Pft, things are better... I wanna know that I've done everything I could, everyday... HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

During the shooting of the film, time and again his role in Scientology is discussed in public. May a leading Scientologist act the part of Graf Schenk von Stauffenberg, resistance fighter in Nazi Germany?

             Fourth Season Boxed Set Showcases Swan Song for Ugly Betty

DVD Review: Ugly Betty: The Complete Fourth and Final Season
by Robert Bell
Published: August 17, 2010

In this ,the fourth and final season of television's most colourful hour-long, Ugly Betty, the Gay and Latina brigade tackle Scientology, alcoholism, unexpected pregnancy and early adolescent homosexual desires. Essentially, it’s the sort of stuff that terrifies Rightwing thinkers, save the bashing of Scientology, which, ironically, may have been the jab that cut Betty’s lifespan short.

And while it’s sad to see our overly enthusiastic, uncoordinated and frequently clashing heroine go, four years is a solid run for a network series—especially one that appeals primarily to gays and visible minorities. Since the news of the cancellation came early in the season, the creative team had reasonable opportunity to wrap up the many storylines, finding Hilda (Ana Ortiz) a husband and Betty (America Ferrera) making strides towards the dreams she put on hiatus.

When the season starts, Betty is pining over her ex-boyfriend Matt (Daniel Eric Gold), who, incidentally, is also Betty’s boss at her new Junior Editor gig, making work somewhat challenging. Meanwhile, Wilhelmina (Vanessa Williams) struggles to cover up a murder committed by her daughter, as she sneaks around with her presumed dead lover Connor (Grant Bowler).

Daniel (Eric Mabius) is still dealing with the death of Molly, making him susceptible to a crazed cult that tries to cut him off from his loved ones. Of course, Betty and his mother Claire (Judith Light) will have nothing of it, going toe-to-toe with the religious nuts so that Daniel can go back to moping about his leadership insecurities and aging physique.

Since Betty has long since bonded with resident Mode meanies Mark (Michael Urie) and Amanda (Becki Newton), the thread here is Mark’s resentment of Betty’s new job and Amanda’s career trajectory woes. But this doesn’t stop Mark from acting as a sounding board for Betty’s gay nephew Justin (Mark Indelicato), as he deals with the prospect of coming out of the closet.

Not much about the template has changed since the first season, with the same melodramatic writing, exaggerated drama and inappropriate humour making for camp entertainment at its mainstream best. From wild neon wardrobe choices to slightly racist jokes about Betty’s cuisine tastes, there is constantly something to look at or listen to, even if the actual plot is often so contrived and predictable (intentionally so, to an extent) that it’s hard not to roll your eyes.

Perhaps it’s even a blessing that the show ended when it did, not suffering much deterioration in quality, still propelling the characters to their overly protracted destinations.

The 4-disc DVD set doesn’t include much in the way of cast sentimentality, featuring only one commentary track with Michael Urie and Mark Indelicato on the episode where Justin has his first gay kiss, which could suggest feelings of hostility or, more likely, a lack of funding for such things on the part of the studio.

Still, there are some deleted scenes along with a Bahamas supplement, wherein Mark and Amanda ask a sea lion where the rest of the cast is. Vanessa Williams and Judith Light make sushi as well. It’s awkward and poorly assembled.

There are also webisodes with Mark and Amanda, where they toss out indecipherable pop culture slang and learn that the security guys like to watch them on workplace cameras after hours at Mode. More entertaining is the gag reel where just about every cast member either flubs their lines or falls flat on their ass.

                                      Scientology: The Ex Files

Monday September 27 at 10 pm ET/PT & Sunday October 3 at 8 pm ET on CBC News Network

Behind Scientology's high celebrity profile lies an organization on its knees. In this powerful documentary and jaw-dropping investigation, a band of former elite members emerge from the secretive religion to allege extreme cruelty, slave labour and financial greed.

"It may have a philosophy that's religious, but it's strictly business", says former scientologist Joe Reaiche. Joining at the age of 19, Joe advanced quickly through the mysterious levels of learning at the heart of Scientology. At each level he was asked for a fee, which would eventually amount to approximately $235,000. When Joe voiced his doubts about the church, he was expelled, and all communication with his wife and children cut off.

"Only a mad man says he isn't mad", grins L. Ron Hubbard, founder of the church of Scientology, in some rare archive footage. At the time, Hubbard was in trouble with authorities all over the world, and he had fled to the high seas with his band of devoted followers. According to Hana, an early member of the Church, conditions on-board were "abominable", and punishments for breaking the church's strict rules were extreme: "people were thrown overboard - hands and feet bound and blindfolded".

Hubbard's culture of unwavering obedience and extreme discipline survived his own passing in 1986. Joe describes how a "religious retreat", he was sent to for sloppy work, was nothing less than a "slave camp". "Members who are failing or incapable of performing well can be given the voluntary opportunity for a period of reflection, rehabilitation, redemption", defends Tommy Davis. Of Joe's separation from his family, Tommy is less glib: "any church has a right to not welcome in its ranks those who mean the church harm."

There's a growing number of ex-members who the church now views in this suspicious manner, many of whom claim to be dogged by private investigators. "My lawsuit covers human trafficking, labour law violations and forced abortions", says Claire. She joined the church's 'Sea Org' at just 16 years old, earning $22 a week and sleeping in a chair. When she fell pregnant with her husband Mark, the church told her: "'They're going to ask you 'do you want an abortion. You're to say yes'". Claire is one of forty women who've made this allegation, which the church vehemently denies.

                      Christchurch scientology massages concern some


Sun, 13 Mar 2011 6:24p.m.

By Jessica Rowe

It's a massage designed to relieve stress and help people recover from shock.

Volunteer ministers from scientology are performing a technique designed by their founder, L Ron Hubbard, to assist people in Christchurch after the earthquake.

They've performed 1500 massages across Christchurch, and apparently they've taught about 600 people how to pass them on to their community.

They also carry out a technique called "locational assist" where they get people to engage in the present moment.

The 20 scientology volunteers are just a small team from an international pool of more than 200, 000.

They visit disaster zones and help out with distributing food, door knocking and assisting with trauma.

But Cultwatch says these techniques specific to scientology could be a method of recruiting.

“I think it comes down to motivation, do they really care about people or is the motivation to try and get into their good books and then try and recruit them,” says Cultwatch’s Mark Vrankovich.

And mental health officials say people should be careful.

In a statement, Pegasus Mental Health says all aid workers, and especially health workers, should be able to provide very basic psychological first aid.   They say they’re cautious helpers who are not familiar with these guidelines could potentially do more harm than good inadvertently.

A group of scientology volunteers are now planning a mission to Japan to offer their services there.

        German filmmakers tour Twin Peaks with AGP/AO/GB   21st June 2011

Today AnonOrange, Graham Berry and I took five German journalists, including a reporter forhttp://www.berliner-zeitung.de to Twin Peaks and Gold Base for a story they are doing for French/German TV. They have travelled the world visiting Scientology locations and were almost beaten up by a cultist in Germany.

Yesterday they toured the Hwd/Sunset Blvd properties and today we drove up to Twin Peaks in two cars. The cult appeared to know we were coming, probably because they had been at Big Blue yesterday. But who knows, they may have interecepted our emails or phone calls. Yesterday the Germans were followed from big blue. A yellow tape saying "do not cross" was stretched across the driveway and several cars were parked by the side of the road. This prevented us from parking as the space was taken (something I had never seen before in this isolated area).

When we got out a couple goons immediately appeared yet could do nothing but watch as we walked the fenceline. We were within the easement, or public right of way, which extends 35 feet from the center of the road. The cult's large microwave transmitter had an ugly rip in it which they had not repaired.

We showed the crew the fence and the crappy landscaping they did to try to stop us from going there again. The put up half-assed barriers and wires. It makes the landscape look incompetent. They planted a bunch of small, thorny trees, but nothing stopped us from checking out the buildings, the fence/ultrabarrier, etc. Two new security cams had been erected and rotated to watch us. But when the Germans pointed their cameras at the security cam it rotated and turned away as if embarassed. A camera is camera shy!

They called the police and a single car showed up. The cop was curious what we were doing and told us to move the cars as we were blocking the entrance. He was nonchalant and told us not to go on the property. I assured him I was on the easement. His main concern was that nobody get hit by a car on this windy road with no sidewalks on which vehicles travelled at high speed. Then he left.

While we were fence walking the folks at the cars amused themselves watching a California brown bear dumpster diving. It spent half an hour digging through the cult's trash container of yard waste before pulling out a blue plastic bag and wandering off with it. People were stopping cars in the road to see the bear and it became a safety hazard. I missed it all!

The plaid shirted goons walked back to the rear entrance as the crew recorded the trucks and propane tank there. Eventually we tired of mocking them and left. They followed us in a maroon car. Our two vehicles played silly games with their until eventually we lost them. But at least the Germans got good footage of being fair gamed.

On the way to cult HQ Gold Base I was left, like Dick Cheney, at an undisclosed location. I am legally unable to go there until the end of the year (see court case Angry Gay Pope v. Pansies). When the Germans arrived the goons from Twin Peaks were already at the Gold Base guard shack. A third goon joined them. AO got into an altercation at the gate which I will post. But I won't be posting many photos or videos. Nothing happened that had not been seen before. The cult turned the sprinklers on them but the surround sound speaker system had been dismantled and was not used. Strangely, Gold base's fleet of vans were covered with white cloth protectors. I assume they are not using the vans to ferry people around very much. Several years ago there were so many people at Gold that cultists were housed off-site and bussed in. The first time I saw Gold there was only one bus. Then there were none. I assumed that meant everyone who worked at Gold now lived there and doesn't leave. The fact they are covering their vehicles with cloth makes me think this is even more true now. The sea org housing which had been half completed appears done and people are living in it.

If you ask a scientologist about this disconnection policy then they will either deny it or they will say that the disconnected are welcome back into the "church"....but on conditions....after doing amends.

                         Australia

Scientology infomercial propaganda hits Australia television


As probably few (none) of you will know, Network Seven in Australia recently and quietly launched a fourth digital channel in select regional areas. Its called 'Television 4' and its essentially an shitty infomercial channel that no-one cares about.

Anyway, imagine my surprise when I casually flicked to the channel whilst channel surfing and was confronted with SCILON PROPAGANDA!

Yes, Scientology Australia have finally made it our tv screens. At the moment the content appears to be the anti-drugs stuff (drug free ambasadors, drug free world, other generic anti-drug front group) but I also saw hints of anti-psych stuff, human rights, TWTH etc. The footage is new to me, not sure if its been released before, however I noted it was Australian focused, with the ad directly spruiking scientologytv.com.au

All in all I found this to be pretty funny. I bet the church is now crowing to its members "We are screening scientology PSA's around Australia on prime-time television". The truth is they paid what would probably be a pittance for some air time on an infomercial channel hardly anyone knows about, and certainly no-one will care about. I am truly surprised Scientology even found out about the channel.

In any event I will try to get the infomercial up in a minute so others can have a look (I recorded it, of course). I will also try and stream-dump the channel to try and capture other scientology infomercials (if any).

Edit: here is the video, low production values sure are low!

Title: Re: Scientology on TV
Post by: Ididntcomeback on February 14, 2012, 10:25:51 PM


    Response to Today Tonight from the Church of Scientology:

    SHANE KELSEY

    Shane was always treated with care and respect during his time with the Church. When Shane came to live with his mother, sent here by his father Adrian who had full custody, it was apparent that whilst under his father's guardianship, Shane's education suffered a setback when he was living in Mexico and he was at least two years behind in his education.

    This is detailed in a letter that Adrian Kelsey wrote to Shane's mother in 1996, a copy of which was just provided to the Church. When Shane came to his mother, his reading and writing were substandard and he had other personal problems. Shane was then home schooled and his literacy improved drastically and he undertook several programs to improve his study.

    When Shane did decide to leave the RPF, he simply walked out, with absolutely no barriers and caught a plane. There are no gates and the Church facilities are on a wide open property, highly visible from the street and anyone can leave and enter the property at any time. The Church has toured members of the Australian media through our premises as well as other officials (including the police). Shane simply left (as a grown adult) and other than his mother being in contact with him who was understandably concerned for his welfare and whereabouts, no Church staff member originated any communication to Shane after he left.

    He was not followed, visited, or called. He sent several emails to the Church a few months later and was assisted with his personal requests.

    Whilst Shane was on the RPF, he agreed that he would do the program and this included not watching TV or movies or reading novels. This was only for the set time of the program and this is not unlike other religious programs. Prior to his joining the RPF program, Shane read any novel, watched any movie, or whatever he chose. Shane had a short holiday with family mid the program and went to the movies and fishing as well as other activities.

    Proper meals are provided to all Church staff on the premises at numerous times in the day. There is ample food and a varied and nutritious menu.

    Other children who were brought up in the Sea Org have gone on to earn degrees with high literacy and competence exhibited.

    THE REHABILITATION PROJECT FORCE (RPF)

    The Rehabilitation Project Force (RPF) is a voluntary religious program of spiritual rehabilitation to provide a "second chance" to those who have failed to fulfill their ecclesiastical responsibilities as members of the Sea Organization, the religious order of the Church of Scientology. It represents a free religious commitment by the individual to a spiritual discipline. The word "force" in this context means a group of people acting together.

    The RPF is based upon one of oldest and most fundamental concepts in religion--a religious retreat in the form of a cloister focusing on intensive spiritual introspection and study and balanced by some form of physical labour. This practice is common to the religious orders of many other world religions in addition to Scientology including Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism and the monastic orders of the Roman Catholic Church.

    The RPF was created during the 1970s at the request of Sea Organization members in order to be given a second chance. As with any religious program requiring high spiritual and ethical standards as well as dedicated service, some Sea Org members stumble in their effort to maintain such high standards and a few members commit serious breaches of ecclesiastical rules governing their conduct as a member of this order.

    In such a situation, the individual is given the choice of either leaving the Sea Organization or participating in a religious program designed to provide the individual with an opportunity to progress spiritually and remedy past shortcomings -- the Rehabilitation Project Force religious program.

    The program is done voluntarily for purposes of penance and amends. It consists of 5 hours scripture study and counselling per day and extroverting physical actions. The program is devoid of luxuries, to motivate the individual to improve himself and get through the program to once again be a capable and contributing member of the group. It is conducted in the Church facilities which contain grounds, gardens and the property is open to the street with free access to and from the property.

    Every Sea Organization member who does the RPF is only permitted to do so after reading all relevant Church policies, so they can give fully informed consent for their participation. It is a voluntary religious program of spiritual rehabilitation. This is expressed in the expertises of J. Gordon Melton, Professor of Religion at the University of California; Frank K. Flinn, Adjunct Professor of Religious Studies at Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri; Juha Pentikäinen, Chair of the Department of the Study of Religions, University of Helsinki, et al., who have studied the RPF and provide the true and scholarly information on this subject.

    There are many accounts from those who have undertaken the program, expressing the countless benefits they have experienced from doing so, and also expressing their gratitude that they were given the opportunity. People do leave the program without completing it and leave the religious order.

    Before participating in the RPF, any applicant for the program signs an "Acknowledgement of RPF Assignment and Election to Proceed" which states the following:

    "LASTLY, I FURTHER ACKNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTAND that I need not sign this Acknowledgement and Election to Proceed and I need not proceed to the introductory and preparatory stages of the RPF, as this entire religious atonement process is designed and intended to be totally voluntary, and I MAY NOW OR AT ANY TIME DURING MY PARTICIPATION IN THE RPF CHOOSE TO DECLINE TO PARTICIPATE AND TERMINATE MY MEMBERSHIP IN THE SEA ORGANIZATION."

                                       Bill Shorten's Response to Child Slavery

    Many of you may not be aware of this, but Bill Shorten is considered by many of his fellow parliamentarians and the media, to be a future Prime Minister. With Bryan Seymour's interview of Shane and Adrian et al, he has a challenge, a very real challenge, which could make or break him in his pursuit of his Prime Ministership.

    I suggest that each of us write to him demanding or requesting that he take positive and effective action with respect to this totally criminal scene. Pointing out to him that you will be advising his fellow parliamentarians of his progress or absence of it.

    If we do this well, really well, we could bring about the final collapse of the CofS in Australia.

    His contact details are as follows:

                      Scientology on German TV


Last week, the ZDF (Second German TV channel) broadcast an episode of its crime investigation series "SOKO Leipzig", where the cult of Scientology was at the center of attention.
Compared to the movie "Until Nothing is Left", this TV-show made a rather unspectacular debut on German television's evening programme on 3rd of February 2012. Part of the reason for this I guess is that here Anon did not discover a secret filming location full with Scientology books.
This movie is much shorter being only about 45 minutes in length, much more fast-paced, and may appeal to those who found "Until nothing is Left" to be long-winded.

Since media attention like this plays a big part in our struggle against Scientology, the video is now on Youtube with English captions put to it.

You can access it via the playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL88674F7942334541&feature=view_all

but for sake of completeness I'll include all three videos here as well:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24jHcX_OuOw
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FBAKXP9sTnc
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtH-EMUZ7R4

Enjoy!

If you don't see the english subtitles then you need to click on the button at the bottom right of the video nav bar and click on [CC] to turn on the closed captions.

Not my cup of tea, a bit cheesy, and there is little care for accuracy in the details. However, it is fiction, and it is scientology featuring in a TV drama as the baddies (again), which is a good thing. It's still interesting to watch.

                        German OSA doc airing again on another network

Documentarian Frank Nordhausen wrote to me today and told me that the OSA documentary which aired on a French/German channel has been re-edited and is airing on German TV Channel 1 (ARD).

He tells me there will be some surprises in the new edit, whatever that means.

The original doc with english subtitles is here:

Reply...

fyi ARD "Das Erste" is the biggest public TV channel in Germany, it has a much greater viewership than ARTE.
Apparently the broadcast is tonight at 10:45pm German time.

They often have films like this publicly available on their online platform afterwards too.

                Escaping Rehab FOX25 OKC Marisa Mendelson Reports on Narconon Arrowhead

http://www.okcfox.com/newsroom/top_stories/videos/kokh_vid_5621.shtml

"Narconon Arrowhead Rehab Death Reactions
After a death at a local drug rehab facility, a patient says her family had to call police to help her leave. Thursday's death at Narconon Arrowhead is the fourth death connected to the Scientology-based drug rehab facility in the past three years. Deputies with the Pittsburg County Sheriff's Office found Stacy Murphy dead in her room Thursday at Narconon Arrowhead. After Murphy's death, another patient called her family, wanting to leave. That's when the Sheriff's Office had to step in. "It's a sad situation," said Sheriff Joel Kerns of the Pittburg County Sheriff's Office. Kerns' department investigated three deaths that occurred at Narconon Arrowhead. One death occurred after a Narconon patient was transported to a hospital. Fox 25 spoke on the phone with Regina Ramsey. Ramsey's daughter checked into Narconon Arrowhead last month for a meth addiction. after calling several rehab facilities in Oklahoma. "Narconon was the only one that had a bed available that she could get into that day and we went ahead and made the decision to let her go, because we were afraid if we waited, she would change her mind and back out," said Ramsey. Ramsey says she paid $27,000 for the program and had no idea it was based on Scientology. "She said she was forced to read the Scientology bible," said Ramsey. While at Narconon Arrowhead, Ramsey's daughter became friends with Stacy Murphy. Murphy died at Narconon Arrowhead on Thursday. After Murphy's death, Ramsey says her daughter called her, wanting to leave. "They say you can leave at any time, but when you go to leave, they tell you, you can't leave. Even though she was voluntarily checked in and wasn't under any court order or anything," said Ramsey. That's when Ramsey called the Pittsburg County Sheriff's Office to step in. "I actually sent an officer up there to get her and brought her to my office where the mother picked her up here," said Sheriff Kerns. Ramsey says her daughter was not the only person who tried to leave Narconon Arrowhead after Murphy's death. "She knew of at least 15 other people that wanted to leave and 14 of them were told they couldn't leave," said Ramsey. Now Ramsey says she's glad she got her daughter out, before it was too late. "I think this facility should be closed, before anybody else dies," said Ramsey. Fox 25 left several messages for the CEO of Narconon Arrowhead to try and get a statement about Murphy's death, but he has not yet returned our calls. The Oklahoma Department of Mental Health is looking into Narconon Arrowhead. When Fox 25 gets the results of that investigation, we will let you know."

                        Narconon Treatment Center Under Fire Following Patient Death

                                               VIDEO

Services were held today-- for an Owasso woman who died at a controversial drug treatment facility. 20 Year old Stacy Murphy was a patient at Narconon, where 3 other people associated with the facility have died since 2009. It's located in Canadian-- the town is located about 15 miles north of McAlester. The deaths at this facility are generating national attention from New York to California. The most recent death happened Thursday.

To her family, Stacy Murphy should not be dead.

"Stacy was not a bad child. She was vivacious, hardworking, loveable person," says her father, Robert Murphy.

She walked into to Narconon for help with a drug addition. It was where she was pronounced dead after a 6 week stay.

But Murphy's death raises even more growing questions about Narconon a non profit drug and alcohol treatment center, we're told that's associated with the teachings of Scientology.....

http://rockcenter.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/07/12/12704221-ex-scientology-spokesman-says-families-are-torn-apart-when-one-spouse-wants-to-leave-the-religion?lite

By Anna Schecter
Rock Center

Though Katie Holmes has not addressed reports that Scientology was a reason she split with Tom Cruise, a former Church of Scientology spokesman said some families, including his own, were torn apart when one spouse wanted to leave the religion.

“My wife, my son, my daughter, my mother….they disconnected from me.  They will not communicate with me,” said Mike Rinder in an interview with Kate Snow airing on Thursday, July 12 at 10pm/9c on NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams.

Rinder joined the church as a child in Australia and rose to be Scientology’s international spokesman before he left the church in 2007.

He said he had been unhappy inside the church for a long time, but was afraid to leave because he said the church encouraged members to cut ties with relatives who want to leave.

“Part of that environment is keeping track of how people think…it’s a crime to …think bad thoughts about what’s going on and people will turn you in. Even your spouse will turn you in or your children will turn you in and then you’ll be in trouble,” he said.

When he finally decided to leave, he said he called his wife of 31 years and their two children and asked them to join him.

“The first thing that I did was I contacted them and said, 'Okay, I'm done.  I'm gone.  I'm in Virginia.  Please come and join me.'  And the answer was, ‘F-you.’  Literally,” he said.

In addition to losing his family, Rinder said he has been harassed by the church, an assertion the church denies.

“They've had private investigators follow me for months and months and months, everywhere I went,” he said.

In 1998, Rinder was on the other side of the fence, defending Scientology in an interview with Dateline.

"There isn't and hasn't been any effort which has been taken to quote silence critics," said Rinder to Dateline in 1998.

Today, Rinder says he frequently lied to the public in his role as a church spokesman.

The Church of Scientology says it does not encourage members to cut ties with relatives who have left the church.

In a letter to NBC News, an attorney for the church wrote that Rinder is, “untrustworthy, unreliable and biased,” adding that he is a self-promoter who is using a tragic personal matter to forward his own anti-Scientology agenda. The church denies following or harassing Rinder after he left the church.

The church has said Rinder abandoned his wife and their two children and has accused him of being violent towards his ex-wife and other members of the church.

NBC News could not reach Rinder’s ex-wife for comment.

Rinder said at times he was violent towards some church members prior to his separation from the Church of Scientology, but said it was all part of the environment inside the church.

Editor's Note: Kate Snow's full report airs Thursday, July 12 at 10pm/9c on NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams.

    This effort against Narconon has huge ramifications. So far in the US all attempts to get law enforcement and the courts to do something about DM's and the cult's crimes have failed. If Narconon can be shut down it could start the dominos falling....


    Hey OSA!
    Indeed, DM is not a happy camper and on this same date is another Canada National Media Expose about the COS and Narconon. I've successfully handled the onslaught of Dead Agent attacks and countered with additional expose. Watch for something out of Florida, AFTER the Rock has aired

    If DM is not happy now, he's going to be a bigger basket-case in September when the Quebec Human Rights Commission completes their formal Report to the Tribunal concerning the 6-7 cases they have investigated for nearly two years now. Cases include sexual discrimination and Exploitation of a disabled/handicap - 4-5 complainants.

    AND just confirmed at 2:33pm - a few minutes ago about another Radio show that I and two other ex-NN patients will be on next week - - OUCH!!!

Australian tv show "A Current Affair" asks "where's Tommy Davis" who appears to be MIA and whose absence was particularly noted during the TomKat separation. Includes interview with Tony Ortega of the Village Voice who mentions recent Scientology cult escapees - L Ron Hubbard's grand daughter Roanne Horwich and David Miscavige's father Ronnie Miscavige - and the up coming movie "The Master". Added to the recent fall out regarding Narconon, if Scientology thinks its had a rough year to date - the cult ain't seen nothing yet.

Lucas Catton Slams Narconon Fox News 25

August 20, 2012 - Former President of Narconon Arrowhead, Lucas Catton, is speaking out about why he thinks the facility is more affiliated with Scientology than it claims. Gary Smith said in a statement to Fox 25: "Narconon has always acknowledged that our organization receives support from the Church of Scientology." There have been four deaths at Narconon Arrowhead - three within the past nine months. Senator Tom Ivester said he will author legislation aimed at regulating questionable practices of a drug treatment program with close ties to the Church of Scientology. The lawmaker said a quick legal search revealed no less than 15 lawsuits against the facility on Lake Eufaula, Narconon Arrowhead. Where there's smoke, there's usually fire, he said.

                                                   [b]It Never Rains but Pours[/b]

I have just been informed by a Senior Producer of the ABC show 20/20 that they are going to air this Friday.

In Los Angeles, it normally airs at 10pm.
According to Wikipedia it has an audience of 5.6 million.

20/20 spent a lot of resources sending out as many as 20 camera crews simultaneously some 2 months ago.

I really thought they had gotten threat letters which made them shelve it.
But with the stupid tripe and chest pounding letters to Vanity Fair, hey, they are
on in less than 48 hours !

This must be a Rockerfeller conspiracy ! Maybe the big pharmaceuticals are manipulating it all !

Perhaps Eli Lilli is paying me secretly !

Maybe 20/20 gave me megabucks !

I am a bitter defrocked apostate and all this money is coming in and that is the ONLY reason in the world I am whistleblowing.

Good ole 20/20. Good timing.

20/20 airs at 9pm TONIGHT not 10pm

http://beta.abc.go.com/schedule

Change of content.
The show goes on, but because of the Tom Cruise doll body auditions, it will be Maureen Orth the Vanity Fair Journalist talking on 20/20. You can't blame them. It is the Story of the Week.....

The other footage of the 20 camera crews that ABC 0/20 they intended to air is only postponed due to more breaking news....

I apologise that I seemed so certain the other interviews would be aired today. It is all in Editing and Planning.

Marc and Claire Headley got interviewed for Nightline and this should air in the next few days if not tonight.

He posted this blurb today on his fund raising site
In terms of media, Claire and I both did an interview for ABC's Nightline yesterday. Not sure when that will air or what they will use, but we did our best to make it meaningful. It is sometimes frustrating when you get interviewed for an hour and they use the 10 second clip about the Tom Cruise drama for the 26th time!

A few months back, Claire did an interview for a TV show called 20/20 on ABC. We she was done talking, the entire video crew had tears in their eyes. It was a very powerful interview. That show is supposedly airing tomorrow night. What ends up getting used is anyone's guess, but hopefully it turns out well.


ABC TV have camera crews with HEART.
I also had the entire crew in tears. The host at one point had tears streaming down her face.
Did not know journalists could lose their cool. Thought they were stoic no matter what.


                                   UPDATE OF THE UPDATE from Mark Headley (Blown for good)

We just got word that both ABC 20/20 & Nightline have pulled the TV shows that were going to air tonight.

It appears that someone at OSA is trying to sandbag the downstats over the next few weeks.

How this works is that they will shelve these shows until the next flap happens and then they will have most of the work done and put up something. 4 of the shows that aired this past week were shot months ago!

                               Narconon Records Could Prove Employee Misconduct

McALESTER, Oklahoma -

An Oklahoma drug rehab facility is being forced to hand over records that could possibly disclose that some employees are trading drugs in exchange for sex with patients.

The Oklahoma Supreme Court denied Narconon Arrowhead's request to keep those documents protected.

The documents will soon be released to the attorney representing the family of a young woman who overdosed after being released from the facility in 2008.

That attorney said the facility considers employee records confidential, because many are former patients, so releasing them would violate Narconon's physician-patient privilege.

The attorney will not be able to disclose the details within those documents with the public, at this time, but he said they may contain evidence of employee misconduct.

It's been more than four years since Heather Landmeier went from a bubbly, free-spirited 20-something to a woman, in a vegetative state, fully dependent on another's care.

"We're definitely blessed to have her still here, but it's definitely exhausting and it's such a challenge every day," said Heather's sister, Hilary Landmeier.

Heather was a drug addict. Hilary said Heather got hooked on heroine after high school.

It was something her family never would have imagined.

"[She was] the popular girl, just loved by everybody, and you could never think that she could have anything going wrong in her life. It was her little kept secret that she didn't tell anybody about," Hilary said.

Heather went to Narconon Arrowhead to get help.

It's a drug and alcohol rehab center near McAlester that treats with teachings inspired by the Church of Scientology.

Heather tried treatment at Narconon three separate times.

During her third stint at the facility, her family claims she fell back into the grip of addiction—this time at the hands of Narconon employees.

"It got to the point where she had relapsed and was being provided drugs by these two different full-time staff members in exchange for sex," said the Landmeiers' attorney, Donnie Smolen, II.

Smolen said when Heather tested positive for drugs and she was kicked out of the program on March 5, 2008, no one in her family was called.

Within hours of her release, Heather had overdosed in a Tulsa hotel room. She's now in a persistent vegetative state.

"The facility knows how much drugs is going through that place, how much sex is going on, and they allow it to keep occurring," Smolen said.

Heather's family has filed a civil lawsuit against Narconon Arrowhead.

Smolen said he believes there are more cases like Heather's, but they have been swept under the rug, hidden in employee records.

Monday at 5pm, Atlanta Channel 2.
Investigative Reporter Jodie Fleisher reveals secrets the program fought to protect.
Insiders blow the whistle on problems the state ignored for years.
And the connection to the Church of Scientology.

Looks like it will have interviews with Mrs. Desmond and Luke Catton.  I hope it will be available on the internet also.

Video teaser is 2/3 of the way down the page. Click Play


http://www.wsbtv.com/s/news/2investigates/

Just a note for our compadres in other climes; WSB, local channel 2 is the largest and most watched local news operation in the large Atlanta viewing area. A headlined story by them will be seen by at least several hundreds of thousands of people in North Georgia. And odds are they will have companion stories in their local newspaper (Atlanta Journal-Constitution), and, more widely-reaching, on their 50,000 watt clear channel AM broadcasting arm, which (at night) can be heard by millions of people throughout the south-eastern US!

                     ------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, guys, this is the motherlode of new docs incoming.  If anyone needs a dictionary to understand some of the scientology specific lingo and acronyms (and you probably will, if you go through this stuff throughly), this link that was considerately posted further back in the thread by who me? may help:

Jailed, disbarred lawyer Thomas Corea would rather be at controversial drug rehab facility tied to Church of Scientology

                                    VIDEO

Disbarred Dallas lawyer Thomas Corea wanted to kick his addiction to a prescription anti-anxiety medication at a drug rehabilitation center about 20 miles north of the Mexico border, according to testimony.

In arguing against that request, Assistant District Attorney Jacob Harris suggested Texas LoneStar Victory Ranch is a “med spa” and he questioned the director, who testified by phone, about the fact that he’s neither a medical doctor or a Ph.D.

And in denying the request, state District Judge Mike Snipes said he could not risk the possibility that Corea might flee.

But what’s most interesting about the South Texas facility that Corea isn’t going to any time soon is what was left unsaid in a Dallas County courtroom on Wednesday. That facility is part of Narconon, a controversial international drug rehab network with ties to the Church of Scientology.

Narconon has been in the news quite a bit lately.

There’s the case of a 20-year-old woman who died at Narconon Arrowhead in Oklahoma in July, spurring an ongoing, multi-agency investigation of the facility’s practices, according to the Tulsa World. That newspaper reported Wednesday that her death was caused by an overdose of the prescription pain reliever oxymorphone.

It was one of three deaths at the facility since last year, according to reports. One of the other two deaths was of a 21-year-old Carrollton woman, according to reports. Per to the Tulsa World, “Narconon Arrowhead is the flagship branch of an international drug-rehabilitation organization rooted in the teachings of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.”

Earlier this year, a Narconon facility in Quebec was shut down because it posed health risks, according to media reports.

According to an August Tampa Bay Times piece:

Narconon centers claim success rates of 75 to 90 percent. But their methods, developed by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, have drawn fire over the years. They include high doses of niacin and lengthy sauna sessions that are said to release stored drug residues from fat tissue — a Hubbard theory contested by many health professionals.

The Narconon network of treatment centers is part of a Church of Scientology “sector” called the Association for Better Living and Education, or ABLE. It supports and coordinates the church’s “social betterment” causes, such as combating drug use, advancing human rights and improving literacy.

Narconon and Scientology officials defend the operations and have said media misrepresented facts about the Oklahoma investigation, according to reports.

Also in August, NBC’s Rock Center with Brian Williams aired an extensive piece about Narconon, including interviews with relatives of people who died at the Oklahoma facility. From that piece:

Narconon’s method of rehabilitation is unorthodox.  Patients are called “students” and they study a series of eight books based on the writings of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.

The books resemble grade school workbooks and the students practice exercises that Narconon says helps them lead drug-free lives.  The program costs $30,000 per patient and the treatment usually takes three to six months to complete.

Narconon’s unconventional methods include spending up to five hours a day in a sauna for 30 straight days and taking up to 5,000 milligrams of the vitamin Niacin daily.    It is similar to Scientology’s regimen called a “purification run-down,” designed to free the body of toxins in order to achieve spiritual gains.

Narconon is a “non-medical treatment facility,” meaning it does not administer pharmaceutical drugs to aid in the withdrawal process or the healing of addiction.  Hubbard shunned the pharmaceutical, psychiatric and psychotherapy industries. He believed any drug is essentially a poison and even medicines create a barrier to spiritual well-being.

The detox is part of a larger system of life skills training that many Narconon graduates say has helped them lead drug-free lives.

The NBC piece included a clip from the now infamous Tom Cruise Scientology video posted online in which the actor proclaims, “We are the authorities on getting people off drugs.”

Which brings us back to Wednesday morning in a Dallas County courtroom, where Snipes had a guy on speaker phone by the name of Joseph Sauceda, the executive director of LoneStar Victory Ranch.

Sauceda testified that he’d never met or talked to Corea, but that they’d accepted him into their program following what was apparently a third-hand evaluation of the prospective student.

“It’s an extensive program,” Sauceda said, adding that it runs anywhere from three to six months long. The first part is devoted to cleansing the patient of drugs, while the second part is devoted to teaching life skills, he said.

Sauceda cited a success rate between 75 and 78 percent with follow-up.

The facility sits on more than 17 acres of land, has 24 beds and is surrounded by sugar cane and cotton. They have no armed guards, and though they’ve treated a few people convicted of crimes, they have never treated someone prior to a possible conviction, he said.

Corea had paid at least about half of the more than $30,000 fee it would have cost, though it’s unclear how he came up with that money, Sauceda said.

After several minutes, Snipes had heard enough and ended the call.

There was no talk of the Church of Scientology. Nothing about the scandals surrounding Narconon. It’s unclear whether the judge or the attorneys knew of the link.

But it probably didn’t matter as far as Snipes was concerned. Following closing arguments by both attorneys, Snipes denied the request and sent Corea back to the Dallas County jail.

No word on whether that LoneStar Victory Ranch payment is refundable.

                          Grover Norquist Compares Stimulus Spending To Scientology (VIDEO)

Grover Norquist tangled over taxes with Huffington Post reporters Ryan Grim and Zach Carter on HuffPost Live Thursday.

Norquist dismissed those who believe in government spending to stimulate the economy, comparing the belief to Scientology.

"This is called Keynesianism, and they've got nice churches, and they truly believe this, they're like Scientologists with their little black boxes," he said.

"The general public... understands that when the government builds a bridge, or the government builds a school, those are jobs, and that's economic activity that they're creating," Grim countered. "So I think that he's lost that argument."

 Tom Cruise, Church of Scientology to be Focus of Tell-All TV Documentary (EXCLUSIVE)

Submitted by Celebrity News Wire on December 10, 2012

The Church of Scientology and its poster child Tom Cruise are the subject of a new, tell-all documentary from Britain’s Channel 4, Celebuzz has learned.

Tony Ortega, the investigative reporter who chronicles the inner-workings of the church, conformed he has been working with the television network, filming in California, Texas and New York during recent months.

“I’m glad to help them,” Ortega, the former Editor in Chief of the Village Voice who now runs his own website, told Celebuzz via email.

“I think their one-hour show, airing in March, is going to be a major addition to the field.”

The Channel 4 documentary comes at a time when 50-year-old Cruise’s involvement with the controversial religion has been sharp in focus, in the wake of his split from ex-wife Katie Holmes.

Indeed, as this site previously reported, ex-Scientologists — including one of Cruise’s former advisors — spoke out about how Cruise has lived life in a gilded cage supervised by the leaders of his religion, for more than 20 years.

The split from ex-Dawson’s Creek star Holmes was also deemed to be the “biggest nightmare” in Scientology history, according to some defectors.

He added, “One of the most powerful things about this documentary is that those interviewed took part in the wrongdoing.

“Now they’re speaking out, revealing everything Scientology tried to bury.”

It’s not the first time Channel 4 has investigated the church. In 1997, John Travolta, the actor, wrote to Michael Jackson, the network’s controller, asking him not to allow a documentary because it would slander him and the religion.

   Tom Cruise and Church of Scientology to be Featured in Tell-All Television Documentary

Posted by Karen Benardello On December - 17 - 2012

Tom Cruise and the Church of Scientology will be the subjects of an all-new tell-all documentary to air on Britain’s Channel 4, Celebuzz is reporting. The investigative reporter who will chronicle the inner-workings of the church, Tony Ortega, confirmed that he has been working with the television network. The documentary has been filming in California, Texas and New York in recent months.

Ortega, the former Editor-in-Chief of the Village Voice who now runs his own website, told Celebuzz he’s glad to help Channel 4 with the documentary. “I think their one-hour show, airing in March, is going to be a major addition to the field,” he also said.

Channel 4′s documentary comes when the ‘Jack Reacher’ actor’s involvement with Scientology has been in focus, after his recent divorce from his third wife, Katie Holmes. Ex-members of the controversial religion, including one of Cruise’s former advisers, spoke about how he has lived life in a gilded cage supervised by the leaders of the religion, for more than 20 years.

When asked about the documentary’s focus, Ortega said he “better let them say more about what’s in it. I’ll just say I’ve been impressed at their level of research and how much they understand that this is s critical time for the church.” He added that one of the most powerful things about the documentary is “that those interviewed took part in the wrongdoing.” The reporter added, “now they’re speaking out, revealing everything Scientology tried to bury.” In an interview with Woman’s Day magazine in Australia, Ortega also said that the interview “is terrifying for Scientology celebrities in an organization that has destroyed so many lives and so many families.”

Channel 4 previously looked into the religion in 1997. John Travolta wrote to the network’s controller, Michael Jackson, asking him to air the documentary, because it would slander him and the religion.

Smith also talks to the Pulitzer Prize-winning author Lawrence Wright, who has written a controversial new book about the Church of Scientology titled, ‘Going Clear: Scientology, Hollywood, and the Prison of Belief.’

Harry Smith’s full report airs Thurs., Jan. 17 at 10pm/9c on NBC’s Rock Center with Brian Williams.

                               First Cut (Ch. 4) to delve into Scientology   U.K.

    High profile Scientology defectors will be examined in a Channel 4 First Cut documentary – one of the first to be ordered as part of an overhaul of the strand.

    Scientology 2.0 is being directed by Joseph Martin for Roast Beef Productions and will examine the Scientology movement and people who have defected from it. The film is in production and it is thought that Tom Cruise’s relationship with Scientology will be examined as part of it.

    First Cut, the documentary strand for up and coming directors an opportunity, is changing significantly in 2013 following a rethink alex. Rather than having 20 x 30-minute films in an early evening slot it will consist of 10 x 60-minute at either 10pm or 11pm.

    Documentary commissioner Lina Prestwood who oversees First Cut said: “The strand represents the industry’s most significant new talent strand for documentary directors. Commissioned to sit confidently alongside Channel 4’s other documentary strands, this initial tranche of First Cut films from five diverse and exciting new directors tackles a huge variety of stories and covers bold new territories in an entertaining and informative way.”

                      Attorney For Families Who Died At Narconon Speaks Out About Latest Controversy

OKLAHOMA CITY -                        NEWS 9.com   TV

Narconon Arrowhead is back in the headlines Sunday night.

News 9 has been closely following the drug treatment facility's recent troubles, including three patient deaths and the lawsuits that followed. Now, Narconon's CEO and several employees have lost their counseling certifications.

Narconon has been embedded in controversy from its rehab methods to its ties to Scientology.

I talked with the attorney representing families for three of Narconon's most recent deaths..

And he had some insight into why the counseling certifications may have been revoked.

"I couldn't begin to tell you the stories I've heard of what goes on down there," said attorney, Gary Richardson.

And Richardson says he's heard plenty of them......

                      Asher Parents Concerned Over Anti-Drug Presentation At School By Narconon

ASHER, Oklahoma -   Video

Several parents say they are concerned over an anti-drug presentation at their school. The organization making the presentation and handing out literature is the controversial Narconon Arrowhead, which News 9 has been investigating here for several months.

10/30/2012 Related Story: Exclusive: Inside Narconon, CEO Answers Accusations About Deaths In Rehab

Last week, Narconon made the anti-drug presentation in Asher. But parents across Oklahoma have contacted News 9 upset about this very thing.

The Asher parents say they have no issues with the school or its administration, but are concerned about Narconon's ties with the Church of Scientology.

When the Asher parent, who asked we not use her name, first saw the coloring book her kindergartner brought home from school she thought nothing of it.

"(It) gives a good drug free message," she said.

Then she saw a message on Facebook from a friend who was concerned and researched the name on the front of the book: Narconon.

The drug rehab clinic in Lake Eufaula is based on the teachings of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard.

"We just believe that Scientology shouldn't be allowed in our school system," said the Asher mother. "If Christianity isn't, why is Scientology?"

Terry Grissom, the superintendent for Asher schools says they were not aware of Narconon's ties to the Church of Scientology until parents contacted them. Grissom says they chose the group's drug free presentation because they were free. Others typically charge.

A Narconon spokesperson says they have been doing drug education in Oklahoma for 22 years and reached half a million kids. Since October of 2012 Narconon says it has delivered 144 presentations to thousands of students in schools across the state.

"We have a huge drug problem in this state that has been growing for years and getting worse," said John Bitinas, a spokesperson for Narconon Arrowhead. "We are doing drug education because we care about the next generation and don't want kids to die from drug OD's or wind up ruining their lives due to substance abuse."

Narconon says its program has nothing to do with Scientology and have provided us with their drug education curriculum.

"There are already not enough drug education programs and kids are getting addicted to drugs every day and dying. We deliver our drug education service at no cost to the state or schools. It has been long established that effective drug education and prevention programs are the best tool to prevent kids from becoming addicted to drugs and alcohol," Bitinas said.

However, after several parents complained, the superintendent of Asher says they probably won't allow the group back into the school.

                 NBC Rock Center Promo Exposing Narconon Tomorrow Evening

Breaking news out of New York this evening about NBC Rock Center with Brian Williams, and NBC reporter Harry Smith interviwing two ex-Narconon staff members, Lucas Catton and Eric Tenorio.

A short promotion of their Narconon Arrowhead segment will be aired tomorrow night, with the entire show airing on Friday, April 5, 2013, at 10pm EST/9PM CST.

The powerful NBC Rock Center show promises to be an eye-opener for viewers. Narconon Arrowhead has been slammed with 10 lawsuits – 9 of them being handled by lawyer Gary Richardson in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

On August 16, 2012, NBC’s “Rock Center” profiled Narconon Arrowhead following three patient deaths inside the rehab center within a nine month period. NBC reporter Harry Smith profiled the case of deceased Stacey Dawn Murphy, a young, 20-year-old with an addiction to oxycontin.

This new NBC segment drew the show’s attention once more following the Narconon Arrowhead’s CEO Gary Smith and several staff members having their counseling certificates revoked. The National Association of Forensic Counselors revoked the certificates after receiving information from two ex-Narconon staff members, Lucas Catton and Eric Tenorio.

Catton, the ex-President of Narconon Arrowhead, says the employees taking the CCDC test were given an answer key to the questions.

Five new cases were filed by Richardson last week against Arrowhead, alleging fraud, deceit, breach of contract, civil conspiracy, and Narconon staff trading drugs for sex with patients.

The lawsuits were filed against Narconon of Oklahoma, Narconon International, Association of Better Living and Education International on behalf of Sue Newman and Dean Shobe, Gina Nelson, Mary Cantu, Lisa Gray and Vicky White.

The Oklahoma Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services launched an investigation into Narconon Arrowhead and has the power to shut down Narconon Arrowhead if the facility is found to be at fault.

Scientology’s drug rehab centers, promoted by actors Tom Cruise and John Travolta, have been the focus of media attention for quite some time, and NBC’s Rock Center will once again expose the dangers of Narconon.

                                I-Team: Scientology-run Center Could Face Inspections
Posted: Apr 10, 2013

                                 video

LAS VEGAS -- Nevada state health agencies want to open up a Scientology-run drug rehabilitation center for inspections.

The move comes after an I-Team investigation highlighting years of patient complaints and allegations of dangerous conditions.

Narconon is a drug rehab center in Lincoln County, 150 miles north of Las Vegas.

State health officials said they want to open up Narconon for inspections for the first time.

From sweating out alien spirits, to lifting objects with their mind, what happens at the drug rehab center is far from scientifically accepted.

Justin Vandergriend went to Narconon for opiate addiction.

"There was times they would throw an ashtray up there and they would say, try to levitate this with your mind," he said. "Control this ashtray."

Narconon course material was written by Scientology religion founder L. Ron Hubbard.

According to Hubbard's 1968 writings, Scientology aims to rid people of infesting alien spirits left behind after a 75 million year old galactic civil war.

The Vandergriend family and many others claim nobody told them Narconon was controlled by Scientology.

"They don't even have a certified doctor, a certified nurse, they don't have anybody," said Dave Vandergriend, Justin Vandergriend's father.

John Anchondo, a former Narconon salesman, said, potential patients weren't aware the rehab center was tied to Scientology.

"I'd tell them, ‘Look, either they're going to die or, you know, send them to us,'" he said. "I'm not going to lie to you. I did save a lot of people. The thing was, they didn't understand it was Scientology. You couldn't tell them that. I was like, why?"

State databases show none of the Narconon employees the I-Team has identified have any Nevada medical licenses or certification for drug counseling.

When attempting to ask them in person, the I-Team's interview requests were repeatedly denied.

Narconon did, however, send the I-Team a promotional packet.

It attempted to justify their nearly $40,000 non-refundable charge by claiming a 76 percent success rate.

Because Narconon accepts no state money, current law prevents state inspectors from verifying Narconon's claims.

After the I-Team alerted lawmakers to the growing number of Narconon complaints, state health agencies now aim to close the legal loophole.

"That is what this bill is intended to do, is to allow us to have oversight over those facilities now we don't have currently licensed," said Marla McDade Williams of the Nevada Health Division.

The state Senate Health Committee plans to vote Thursday on Senate Bill 501, which would give state inspectors power to inspect all drug and alcohol rehab centers, Narconon included.

The bill would then need to pass the Assembly before a signature from the governor.

                                             Doc/Fest 2013: Scientologists at War
June 15, 2013
By Dan Meier

Everyone’s favourite wacky rich people cult takes centre stage in this documentary for Channel 4′s new director strand First Cut. Joseph Martin directs this frightening insight into the Church of Scientology and the sinister way it treats its defectors and critics.



We meet Marty Rathbun, once a high-level member of the Church of Scientology, now a Squirrel. Oh yeah, Squirrel is Scientologist for defector or heretic. Remember, this is a Church who charge you $100,000 to learn sci-fi writer L. Ron Hubbard’s creation myth which is something to do with a super alien called Xenu.

Rathbun had spent many years loyal to the church’s leader David Miscavige, having signed a billion year contract (seriously). He specialised in “auditing”, the process of pseudo-therapy described by Hubbard in his canonical book Dianetics, and enlisting celebrities to the church; he was the man responsible for converting Tom Cruise (to Scientology, I hasten to add). But Rathbun then fell out of favour with Miscavige and was sent to an institution known as “The Hole” for “correction.” He managed to escape and began to blog about the church’s disturbing practices, but soon found himself and his new wife harassed by members of the church calling themselves “The Squirrel Busters.” In a cruel twist of irony, Rathbun found himself the victim of methods he had once helped to develop.

Scientologists at War is an intriguing and creepy insight into the disturbing behaviour of the Church of Scientology. Apparently Hubbard taught that critics of Scientology must be silenced by any means necessary; we meet one defector who found herself wildly accused of child trafficking. Defectors will be spied on, bankrupted and disconnected from their friends and families. Rathbun himself was harassed for 200 days. It sounds almost biblical. Sorry, dianetical.

Scientologists at War airs on Channel 4, Mon 17 June at 9pm.

                                                            GAWKER

                     I Can't Stop Watching Scientologists Getting Sprinklers Turned On Them

Last night, the U.K.'s Channel 4 aired a special called Scientologists at War, which profiled the Church of Scientology's former Inspector General of the Religious Technology Center, Marty Rathbun. Once a spiritual mentor to the likes of Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Kirstie Alley, and Greta Van Susteren, Rathbun left the church in 2004 to practice Scientology independently. He runs a blog called Moving On Up a Little Higher, and has been vocal regarding his displeasure over many of the Church's practices. He says this has resulted in harassment.

Last year, footage of such harassment by a group calling themselves the Squirrel Busters went viral. Scientologists at War showed some more of the Squirrel Busters in action, including discussions of Rathbun's sex-toy preferences and a surreal scene in which one cackles with glee when Rathbun turns his sprinklers on her group. The reaction is Westboro Baptist Church-levels of demented-giddy provocation.

The Church of Scientology's various responses to Rathbun's and the documentary's accusations, as well as the Busters' actions, made up the wacky postscript of Scientologists at War. Here it is in full:

Tory Christman is a former member of the Church of Scientology. She left the organization in 2000, after being a member for about 30 years and is now one of its most visible and high-profile critics.
Christman discovered Scientology in her early twenties after being introduced to the book Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health written by L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. A self-described 'hippie' at the time, Christman hitchhiked from Chicago (where she had been raised) to Los Angeles in order to begin the process of studying Scientology in search of clarity and a profound connection between body, mind and spirit - not only for herself but in order to teach others as well. Over the course of thirty years, Christman moved up the ranks within the order of organization to the second-highest level.
For twenty years, Christman worked with the Office of Special Affairs (OSA) in an effort to remove and curtail critical and condemning material pointed at Scientology from various media outlets - news, television programs, internet, etc. During [what would become] her final years within the organization, Christman felt increasingly conflicted because she supported freedom of speech and felt her activities constituted as censorship.
For the past thirteen years, Christman has been traveling the world lecturing about Scientology, sharing her story and truth behind the "cult."

                                          Scientology's massive tent creates big flap in Clearwater

CLEARWATER (FOX 13) -
The view from SkyFOX shows a giant tarp over a massive tent put up by the Church of Scientology.

Church officials call it a religious symbol.
City officials say no -- it's a sign, and it's illegal.

                          TV Tip: Jenna Miscavige Hill in German National TV

I know here are some Germanfags and I am sure here are some German lurkers...

Jenna Miscavige Hill is guest on Tuesday, November 5th 2013, 22:45 pm in "Menschen bei Maischberger" ARD (First German National TV).

The other guests are interesting too, eg Barbara Kohout (Ex Jehova Witness) I know personaly. She does lots in the fight against "her Cult" and lots about childabuses in Cults general.

                                        Mimi Faust Tells All | Moment of Truth | Part 1 of 3

Mimi Faust tells a story that’s very familiar     Below comment from Tony Ortega.

Two years ago, we interviewed VH1 reality TV star Mimi Faust about her remarkable childhood in Scientology. Mimi became well known as a cast member of Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta, and we were really intrigued when she used the show to explain that her mother had abandoned her for Scientology, and at 13 she’d had to live on her own.

We tracked down information about Mimi’s mother, who turned out to have been a member of Scientology’s internal secret police. Mimi told us quite a tale about surviving Scientology as a child.

Now, two years later, she told much of the same story to Egypt Sherrod on a new feature, “Moment of Truth” at the Madame Noire website. Starting at about 2:40 in, Mimi begins to tell her tale.

We get the feeling Sherrod might have read our story to prepare, but we wish she’d given us a call. She really missed the opportunity to discuss what the Sea Org is, and what it is about Scientology that would motivate a parent to abandon a child. We can only hope those items come up in part two.

                                                Bill Maher: Scientology Is A Sick, Cruel Cult

Published on Mar 6, 2015

Imagine if you were reading a novel that included a character who wrote sci-fi novels, was obsessed with wealth and status symbols, was paranoid about the government, treated others badly, and yet started a religion as a business venture that attracted thousands of devoted followers. You'd probably say, "yeah, right; a nice allegory for an aspect of the American psyche, but I don't think so." Although, if you were familiar with Scientology, you might not be so surprised.

Bill Maher interviews Lawrence Wright, the author of Going Clear” a captivating narrative that begins with the life of L. Ron Hubbard, continues with the genesis of the church and finishes with the actions of his successor, David Miscavige. Here's the bottom line: L. Ron Hubbard was a complicated and slightly crazy man. David Miscavige is a bad man, a very bad man And Scientology is a sick, cruel cult.

                                                Documentary "Going Clear" Unites Voices Against Scientology

Mike Rinder had spent virtually all of his life in the Church of Scientology. From the age of 6 he was raised in the church, eventually rising to become its chief spokesman. Everyone he knew was a Scientologist, including his wife, his two children, his mother, his brother and his sister.
But after spending more than a year in a disciplinary facility known as "the hole," where Rinder says he and other Scientology executives were confined, an increasingly disillusioned Rinder left the church in 2007. It was while in that Los Angeles compound that Rinder, now 59, says he realized the church was "a road to hell" and that he had to get out, even if penniless and without his family.

                                      You heard about Scientology? That’s messed up, right?

Top pick
Dangerous Persuasions (Investigation Discovery, 10 p.m.): What do you find more unbelievable: that there’s a television program titled Dangerous Persuasions or that that there’s a television channel called Investigation Discovery (which is dedicated to a whole list of television programs with ridiculous titles like Dangerous Persuasions)? Regardless, tonight is the second (SECOND) season premiere of this very real television program that exists on this very real television channel. The topic at hand? Well, with an episode title like “A Scientologist’s Escape,” you can probably use context clues, but we’ll give you a little something more.

Dangerous Persuasions “explores everyday people who were brainwashed into making remarkable sacrifices and committing unthinkable acts in the process.” In this particular case, it’s the story of Marty Rathbun. “Marty Rathbun signs a billion year contract with the Church of Scientology, convinced it will help cure his mentally ill brother. He climbs the ranks becoming one of its most elite officers. But Mark is increasingly exposed to the dark, violent side of the church.” You might also remember Marty from the recent HBO Scientology documentary Going Clear. That Scientology’s so hot right now.

                                                             Upcoming Swedish tv Sep 2nd 2015


There is a Swedish journalist, Anna Lindman, who has already made a few series of documentaries on Swedish Television (major nationwide channel) about religion of various flavors. Now she is going to tackle cults in seven parts. They are running trailers on tv, they mention Scientology, JW and the Plymouth Brethren, but there should also be others.

The Scientology episode will be on September 2nd, at 20.00. Former Int exec Mariette Lindstein will be interviewed. She blew the base in 2004 and is now back in Sweden. http://www.holysmoke.org/cos/the-rpf-insider-newsletter7.htm

I may add that Mariette has recently completed the first in a planned trilogy of books, fictional but drawing heavily on her experiences, and has made several media interviews about Scientology recently, Going Clear raised interest, I believe.

The journalist, Anna Lindman, is usually more softly curious in her approach than confrontational, so it will be interesting to see how this turns out.

Fhe main person is Robert Dam, who has done lots of media here and written a book about his experience. If I understand correctly, the documentary series is sort of a journey through the whole experience, from the beginning to the end.

On the television company web page, they quote a couple of DA emails from OSA PR Anette Refstrup. One is that he sent a threating letter to the church, demanding 800 000 DKR or he would go to the press. Robert replies that yes, he had sat down and calculated what he thought they owed him in unpaid wages and donations demanded on false grounds, he goes on to say that actually he and his wife probably donated between 1,3-1,5 million.

Almost all the interviews with Robert online are in some Scandinavian language, including the book, but I found an English page where he tells his story:

The Church of Scientology, Australia have responded to our segment on Thursday featuring Tony Ortega.

The Morning Show
October 23, 2015

I write to you concerning the Morning Show interview which aired this morning with paid anti-Scientologist, Tony Ortega.

The Church was not contacted regarding the claims or given any opportunity whatsoever to respond to the issues raised before or after the program aired today.

I would appreciate if you would instruct your staff who may be airing a story on Scientology in the future, to make a meaningful effort to contact the Church and obtain our information and response, so they can responsibly assess the claim’s accuracy and newsworthiness. This would also provide some opportunity for balance and to respond to false or tabloid claims.

Accordingly, I ask that our Church statement be posted on your website to remedy the lack of balance in this morning's segment and to provide your viewers with our response.

Please get back to me regarding this matter as soon as possible.

Yours sincerely,


Vicki Dunstan | Public Affairs

Nigel was earlier giving evidence in the Land & Environment Court on behalf of Narconon, which is appealing a decision by the Wyong Shire Council to reject their plans for a Drug Rehab Centre in the tiny, peaceful NSW Central Coast town of Yarramalong.

                                Jon Ronson's For the Love of Scientology


Between 1997 and 2000 he hosted a curious late night talk show on Channel 4 (at that time, the UK’s second commercial TV channel, after ITV). In it he talks to, and draws out, groups of ordinary people who have extraordinary hobbies and beliefs.

The very first programme brought together a group of UK Scientologists. We have become used to the modern Church of Scientology’s hostile and controlling attitude towards media interviews. In contrast, these people  are unsupervised and relaxed. They genuinely appear to be speaking their minds . As a consequence, they come over far more sympathetically.

Some activists may criticise  Ronson for not asking hard questions about the abuses of Scientology. Fair enough. However, I feel there is a place for this type of programme. It is the nearest that  people like me (who have never been members of the Church) will get to observing how Scientologists interact with each other, and the operation of social influence, which normalises the most bizarre beliefs (as long as they keep them within the group).

Granted, on this occasion they are on their very best behaviour and anxious to make a good impression – but this is better than nothing.

You can view the 51 minute programme in  a video here.

               Former Scientologist shares his story, interactions with Tom Cruise

After being raised in the Church of Scientology, Brendan Tighe says he signed a “Billion-Year Contract” with the Sea Organization, which is devoted to the most devout members of the church. Tighe says that reports of auditions to be in a relationship with Tom Cruise were accidentally sent to his printer, which is how he learned that an interaction with Cruise and actress Scarlett Johansson didn’t go well. He left scientology in 2011, and joins Megyn Kelly TODAY with his story.

Scarlett Johansson calls the claim that she auditioned to date Tom Cruise 'demeaning' and 'crazy'

Let me just get a bit stupid to explain this...
Actresses were invited to an audition for a movie.
They were not told they were being auditioned to have Tom Cruise jump on their bones.

                           New Documentary Short - The Outside: Suburban Scientology

Nightingale Films

Published on Aug 24, 2018

Scientology is known around the world for all the strange things that they believe in and practice. Most of the documentaries focus on the American side with the likes of Tom Cruise. But this is the first to show British Scientology and how it is closer than you think.

* * * * * END INTRODUCTION * * * * *

Information from Incredulicide on WWP:

* * * * * BEGIN QUOTATION * * * * *

Inspired by Louis Theroux's style, Joe Hoyle decided to do a British-centric documentary on Scientology, and sat down with ex-scientologists to talk about their experience. He went to a protest at the founders home of Saint Hill Manor during the biggest Scientology event of the year. He also talked to a current member of Scientology for their views on what he had heard.

The full film will be released next month.
