            Scientology being ripped another asshole in French Media


Laurent Delahousse and his team have done a show on Tom Cruise and
the cult. I did an interview with the reporter earlier this year. The reporter told me it's going to be a 90 minute documentary on Tom Cruise/Scientology.


http://www.purepeople.com/article/qu...ardez_a35378/1

It airs Monday, July 13th around 22:55 (10:55 pm) on France2

I hope someone gets a copy of this and translates it. It should be a good one.

 PS.   I`ve been told Cruise`s super yacht is being worked on here in NZ
and his helicopter is being serviced out at Ardmore. "Unconfirmed."

                          Tom Cruise jets into New Zealand

1:08PM Thursday Aug 27, 2009

A Hollywood superstar has spent 24 hours in the country.

Tom Cruise flew into New Zealand yesterday and flew out today.

Newstalk ZB reported the actor was met at Wellington Airport by filmmaker Peter Jackson.

Wingnut Films spokesman Matt Dravitski said Cruise knew Jackson and wanted to visit his studios.

Mr Dravitski said Cruise was not discussing any future projects with Jackson.

Wellingtonians reported seeing the Hollywood superstar arriving in Wellington and some say they saw him by the Weta Workshop studios in Miramar.

Jackson is producing The Dam Busters and The Hobbit.

He has just completed The Lovely Bones and was a producer for the critically acclaimed District 9.

               Letter from Marty Rathbun to Tom Cruise`s lawyer.

Bertram Fields
Greenberg, Glusker, et al
1900 Avenue of the Stars
Los Angeles, CA
90067-4590

August 26, 2009

re: Yours of August 26

Dear Bert,

I am sorry to interrupt your vacation, but I want to make sure you fully understand a situation you are clearly being lead to misunderstand.

In spite of your protestation to the contrary, it has become quite apparent you and your client are in fact working on a coordinated defense of Miscavige’s conduct. That you spent five of the twelve sentences of your letter extolling Miscavige’s virtues, while saying nothing in defense of your client speaks volumes.

You apparently chose to ignore evidence of Mike Rinder being battered on more than a dozen occasions and instead used Mike’s purported words uttered years ago in defense of Miscavige. I found that rather telling. That you did not bother to ask Mike – a person you have met and worked with on a number of occasions – despite my invitation to do so and my provision of his contact information – is informative of your client’s position. I know that a renowned attorney such as yourself would normally pursue such evidence with due diligence. Only in Miscavige’s world does an intelligent and thoughtful man like Mike become a non-person with the snap of the fingers.

With respect to your own client, by simply repeating the demand set forth in your original letter to me dated August 7 you have shown that you did not understand what I intended to communicate to you or that your client is under the control of Miscavige.

Your August 7 letter expressed the desire that your client’s name not be associated with me. I responded two days later by telling you that in order to prevent the continuing perpetration of severe and widespread violations of criminal laws and fundamental human rights – and to correct publicly spread blatant lies by Miscavige – it was necessary to communicate that relationship in order to accomplish my humanitarian objective. I provided evidence up through the year I left the Church with links to the accounts of fourteen other people who witnessed the same conduct at issue.

Bert, I only decided to make my knowledge public after reviewing a plethora of evidence – contrary to Miscavige’s PR line that I had perpetrated all of the violent and felonious behavior of his – that after I left, Miscavige’s compound made a sharp turn south towards Jonestown. Several former Miscavige insiders have left since I did. Most, if not all of them, have visited me to help recover from the emotional – and sometimes physical scars – that Miscavige inflicted upon them.

I have hard evidence that Miscavige’s response to my having left was to have the doors to the Hole (ref: St Petersburg Times series) barred and welded shut. He created a literal prison where the majority of the international managers of the Church of Scientology remained locked up for months, and in some cases, even years.

The incidents recounted in the St Petersburg Times Truth Rundown series are like a walk in the park compared to what came later. The Hole became a torture chamber. Literally.

I’ll share one incident I have documented that I believe is apropos to your misguided letter.

A couple years ago Miscavige strode into the Hole to make an announcement to the eighty to one hundred Scientology managers then incarcerated. Miscavige berated them for being far too light in their demands for confessions from three of his favorite targets for degradation, humiliation and beatings. They were Marc Yager who was once the highest ranking official in the Church of Scientology International, Guillaume Leserve the Executive Director International and Ray Mithoff the highest technical executive in all of Scientology. Miscavige informed the gathering that Tom Cruise would be coming to the Int base (the 500 acre compound near Hemet) the next day. This, of course, was taken seriously since the several hundred base staff members were busy that day on the Tom Cruise arrival preparation drill (which includes, incidentally, putting all staff through drills orchestrating every action they perform in front of, or speak in the presence of, Cruise).

Miscavige informed all of the members of International management that he had been telling Cruise all about how suppressive Yager, Leserve, and Mithoff had been to Miscavige personally. He told the executives that he had told Cruise how all other members of management were suppressive to Miscavige too because they refused to beat Yager, Leserve and Mithoff to pulps in defense of Miscavige’s honor. Miscavige said that Tom, as his best friend and most trusted confidante, had vowed to come to the Hole and personally “beat the living shit” out of Yager, Leserve, and Mithoff if the managers failed to do so themselves. Miscavige said that if they didn’t show evidence that they had acted, they all would be bypassed the next day by Cruise. The tantrum was accompanied by the usual ill-tempered and sadistic threats to the executives detailing what would become of them if Tom had to do “their job.”

In response, the mob rushed at the three targeted gentlemen. Fists flew and feet kicked into the three. They continued to pound until Miscavige’s deputy on site determined they had created sufficient evidence. That evidence? Fat lips, bloody noses, black eyes (and the deputy would not let the mob relent until each had two black eyes) and contusions over the faces and bodies of Yager, Leserve, and Mithoff.

Bert, if your client still wants to continue having his name uttered by David Miscavige to perpetrate these types of barbarities and at the same time enjoin me from simply stating a fact that I performed a religious service for him at Miscavige’s direction so that I might continue to lend a credible voice to end these atrocities, then save your firm’s letterhead and send me no more letters.

Instead, go ahead and sue me. I would be happy to see this all aired in court. But, I would be even happier to see you investigate this situation and act to help bring these human rights abuses to an end.

Sincerely,

Marty Rathbun

          Katie enrolls Suri in a Catholic school

Tom has ARC Break...

Tom and Katie have apparently been fighting bitterly over the education of their daughter -- and it seems that Katie has won the battle and enrolled Suri in Catholic school!

The Daily Mail reports that Katie has enrolled her three-year-old at the Catholic Charities Yawkey Centre For Early Education And Learning in Boston.

The family's in Beantown for the fall while Tom shoots his new comedic thriller Wichita.

Katie, who was raised a devout Catholic, has been listening to her parents who've stressed the importance of a Catholic education, says a source.

"She is not convinced by Scientology and has told Tom that she wants Suri to be educated as a Catholic – as she was. They had been having huge problems agreeing on her school." The source continues, "To say they were having arguments is putting it mildly – but Tom came around to the idea in the end."

But does this mean Katie and Suri are no longer Scientologists?

Tom has always preached that being a Scientologist doesn't preclude you from being a Catholic/Jew/Buddist, etc., so perhaps Suri's just learning a little bit about the Pope as well as L. Ron Hubbard!


Or maybe Katie's really getting ready to make a break!

      How did you and Christian Bale develop his character in American Psycho?

It was definitely a process. We talked a lot, but he was in L.A. and I was in New York. We didn’t actually meet in person a lot, just talked on the phone. We talked about how Martian-like Patrick Bateman was, how he was looking at the world like somebody from another planet, watching what people did and trying to work out the right way to behave. And then one day he called me and he had been watching Tom Cruise on David Letterman, and he just had this very intense friendliness with nothing behind the eyes, and he was really taken with this energy.

                 Tom Cruise and 'M:I4' -- the new reality of film deals
                          LA Times...Entertainment section

The 'Mission: Impossible' star is the latest actor to see his share of box-office receipts scaled back to reflect the film industry's new economic realities.

It's hardly a secret that Tom Cruise is no longer Hollywood's top-gun star.

The 47-year-old boyish-looking actor has had a rough stretch, from an embarrassing jumping episode on Oprah Winfrey's couch to the clunker "Lions for Lambs." Many believe that his controversial career has peaked.

Now, in order to revive his big-screen role as dashing secret agent Ethan Hunt in Paramount's "Mission: Impossible IV," Cruise consented to a deal that would have once been unthinkable: He's forgoing a preferential slice of the movie's ticket sales, the sine qua non of clout in Hollywood......

    Tom Cruise Gay Sex Tape Exposed! Katie Holmes is Beside Herself...


April 24, 2010 08:26 PM EDT (Updated: April 25, 2010 10:59 AM EDT)
views: 5236 | comments: 3

The world was suspicious of Tom Cruise long before his infamous Oprah couch crusade and alas the truth is pouring out courtesy of Amy Scobee.  And there is a gay sex tape as confirmation.

Who?  Amy Scobee spent decades working for the upper levels of the Church of Scientology.  And now that she has finally escaped she is telling the truth behind the lies of this religion and Tom Cruise in her book, Scientology: Abuse at the Top.

Why?  Why after years, I mean years, of loyal service would Amy flip on the Church and Tom Cruise?  Star Magazine reports Amy cites years of mental and physical mistreatment as the reason.

So...what does Amy dish about in her book?  It sounds like a pretty juicy read.  Drug use and gay sex rumors are just a few of the shokcing allegations.  Allegations...maybe not.  Amy lived with Tom Cruise when he was married to Nicole Kidman.  This is firsthand info!  According to Amy, they all had to go through intense confessionals while they studied Scientology.  Tom and Nicole exposed ALL of the skeletons in their closet.  We'll have to read the book to find out all of them!

Although, Amy does give a couple PR nuggets to wet our appetite.  It seems we are going to learn Tom was hooked on drugs and had to drop his addiction in order to join some elite group within the Church.  She says she will not say exactly what he was hooked on but pot and cocaine do not disqualify one from joining the group.  Whoa.  Let your imagination run wild this tidbit!

Also, she claims a gay sex tape has been floating around starring none other than Mr. Tom Cruise.  She has no firsthand knowledge of Tom being gay but a well-known spokesperson for the Church has the tape.  I can tell you my friends out in Hollywood know Tom Cruise is gay.  In fact, they tell me it is definitely true and everyone knows it.  So why deny it publicly...all the time?  Well, the Church frowns on it.  They view homosexuality as a disease and from the sounds of it they are handling it for Tom.  This part actually makes me kind of sad for Tom Cruise.  It must be a very isolating existence when you have to hide your true identity. 

Nicole was a beard.  But this was not enough to keep her in the good graces of the Church.  Amy says every hired hand in Tom's house was a spy for the Church.  These maids, babysitters, etc. would report back to the higher-ups with all details related to finances, conversations, agruments, everything.  Eventually, Nicole was considered a threat to the Church.  And poof...Tom divorced her.  Coincidence?  Not likely.

This book is affecting his home life...big time!  Katie Holmes is livid over the truths being exposed in this book.  Katie needs space and time to process what she has learned.  Though surely none of this is news to her.  Neither Katie not Suri are written about in the book.  SO it's not all bad news...right Katie?  As for her whereabouts, Katie flew to LA to celebrate Suri's 4th birthday and dashed back to NYC as soon as could.

Don't be embarrased Katie...almost all women would make the same deal you made!

The book will be available on Amazon May 9th.  Happy reading.

Scanned article from latest STAR magazine.

Hubbard forgot a precept when he wrote "The way to happiness."

Precept 1. Stay the fuck away from Scientology !!!

                        Tom Cruise makes 'subdued' Oprah return
Friday, May 14 2010, 23:30 BST

Tom Cruise was 'subdued' during his appearance on The Oprah Winfrey Show on Friday.

The actor, whose manic appearance on the talkshow five years ago made headlines worldwide, was laid-back and controlled during the programme, reports Radar Online.

Cruise, who does all of his own stunts, discussed his new film Knight and Day and was joined by co-star Cameron Diaz. The stars discussed their on-set fun and said that they enjoyed working together.

Winfrey also asked Cruise about his relationship with wife Katie Holmes.

"Things are going good… I love my wife," he said.

It was recently revealed that Cruise was secretly videotaped by an auditor from the Church of Scientology.
