a movie about them. They call the cops.

     Scientology Documentary: A Video Clip from the Upcoming "Knowledge Report"

One of the people who made the Scientology's Enemies List, which we wrote about yesterday, is Mark Bunker, dubbed "Wise Beard Man" by the Anonymous movement. I sent him an e-mail to make sure he saw it.

Today, I received this reply from him: "What a day. You send me this news and then an hour or so later I hear that my mom has died. I'm cutting my road trip short to go back for
the funeral. Thankfully I just spent a few days with her last week as I passed through the Midwest. I hope to restart my interviews soon."

Bunker is working on a feature-length film, "Knowledge Report," about Scientology. In the preview clip he provided above, you'll see several people who were on the Enemies List, like Amy Scobee and her mother, Bonnie Elliott.

I have to say, the production qualities of this preview are impressive. Bunker is asking the public to help him raise funds to finish the film. Go here for more details.

We're sorry to hear about Bunker's loss. But we know the guy. He won't be down for long.

                   Russia today

Scientology, a religion well-known for some of its followers, such as Tom Cruise and John Travolta, has been banned in Russia for being found extremest and anti-social. France and Germany have claimed that some of its literature is even illegal. In the US Scientology has triggered a scandal too over talks of a secret tax deal. Journalist Mark Bunker has been investigating Scientology fraud since the 1990s and talks about his findings with RT.

             Scientology Apocalypse! Mark Bunker and Marty Rathbun Reveal Their Ties

For Scientology watchers, a stunning development tonight that, not so long ago, we can hardly imagine happening.

Mark Bunker, dean of the old time Scientology critics, has written a guest post on Marty Rathbun's blog this evening -- well, I would be hardly more surprised if a Michael Wolff editorial appeared in tomorrow's Wall Street Journal with a glowing preface by Rupert Murdoch.

Rathbun, who not so many years ago was charged with keeping tabs on critics like Bunker in his role as one of the highest executives in Scientology, is well aware what a surprising turn this is:

    Whatever Mark Bunker's views, and whatever I may think of them, Mark Bunker is a decent, honest guy.

Rathbun, as inspector general of the Religious Technology Center, answered only to Scientology's ultimate leader, David Miscavige. As we've pointed out numerous times before, Rathbun was an enforcer, a fixer, and went after Scientology's perceived enemies seemingly with glee. But in 2004 he left the organization and then two years ago began suddenly speaking out against Miscavige at his blog, "Moving On Up a Little Higher."

Tonight, we learn the surprising secret that when Rathbun needed help setting up his blog, he received that help from an unlikely source: Mark Bunker.

(I am having deja vu: 12 years ago, when I wrote about Tory Christman leaving Scientology, what set her on the road to defection was in part some helpful tech advice from Operation Clambake operator Andreas Heldal-Lund. The web: its power is amazing.)

Bunker is well known as Wise Beard Man, the calm, rational, and most influential of old time Scientology critics, who famously counseled Anonymous to rein in some of its excesses.

As Rathbun points out, he encountered Bunker at protests in Florida over the death of Lisa McPherson, and even then had respect for Bunker's professionalism. But still, it's hard to see these two as bosom buddies.

Rathbun is reviled by many in the Anonymous movement who believe he is too tainted by his time as Scientology's enforcer to take his anti-Scientology efforts seriously today.

And besides, Rathbun may be out of the official church, but he still considers himself a Scientologist. His blog is as much about rescuing L. Ron Hubbard from the organization he created as it is about tearing down Miscavige. Bunker and other old time critics take apart Hubbard and his "technology" as much as they do the church itself. How could these two be anything but enemies?

We'll let Bunker explain:

    I don't agree with everything Marty writes but I enjoy reading what he has to say and I've learned a lot from following his posts. I'm also indebted to him for exposing a lot of newsworthy stories since this blog launched. It's seems like virtually every day there's some tidbit that rumbles the ground at [Scientology's secretive California headquarters] the Int Base. Enough tremors keep happening and he might actually shatter the locks on the doors and free people like [president of the Church of Scientology International] Heber Jentzsch from captivity.

I've been watching Scientology for a long time, and there's one thing I know for sure: Mark Bunker does not make a statement like that lightly. You can almost feel the locks at Int Base loosening.

But Bunker knows the criticisms of Rathbun and Mike Rinder, another former high-ranking official who defected in 2007:

    There are many critics of Scientology who can't forgive Mike and Marty for their actions while in Scientology. I'm sure there are many Scientologists who will never forgive me for speaking out against Scientology. I'd rather look past that black and white attitude and find a way to communicate and curb the abuses that brought Bob Minton into this fight to begin with and that are now being hurled against people like Mike and Marty.

There's much more in the statement, as well as a plug for Bunker's documentary, which he's making with the help of donations. Sure, posting at Rathbun's blog is a smart move for Bunker, who could use the exposure to Rathbun's audience and the funds that might bring. But as the two now reveal, it was Bunker who helped Rathbun two years ago to get his blog going in a way that enabled it to grow.

I called Rathbun tonight to ask him about it. "I didn't even know what a blog was. I had a one-page web page, and a lot of people would tell me it's a piece of shit. Then Mark Bunker contacted me and helped me turn it into a blog," he said.

"Mark Bunker is a straight ahead guy. He's the guy that always counsels reason and has really stayed focus on abuse in the church. And he hasn't been trashing scripture and trashing tech. He really hasn't been trashing LRH," Rathbun continued. I asked him if he didn't think people would be surprised to see that they had joined forces.

"I don't think it should be that much of a surprise. He's been really focused on behavior and how the cult trashes people. He's a stand-up guy," he answered.

I also talked to the Beard Man tonight and asked him about his big secret, that he'd helped Rathbun get his blog going. "I kept my involvement secret because I didn't want to scare away Scientologists who might be frightened by my involvement at all," he said.

And why did he reach out to offer Rathbun his technical expertise? "Really, I wanted to read what he had to say," he answered.

(He did, by the way, think of Tory Christman's interaction with Andreas Heldal-Lund, he told me. "I thought, here's a way I can help.")

As for those who might question his showing unity with Rathbun in tonight's editorial, he said: "I think Marty's struck an effective blow at Miscavige's regime, and I think he should be applauded for telling the truth as he sees it. And if I'm to be honest with myself and say that I support people's right to believe in Scientology, then I have to support people like Marty who are trying to make a change. I don't believe in the tech myself, and I think Hubbard is more responsible for problems in Scientology than people like Marty will ever confront, but I think it's a process...It could take years to peel away the levels of this organization."

Bunker added that he's always supported the "Free Zone," another splinter group that adheres to Hubbard's technology while remaining out of the official church.

"I think Marty has revealed a lot of important stuff that may not be as much as some critics like, but I'm appreciative of everything that he and Rinder and other people at the site have done already," he added.

As always, we'll be looking forward to reactions from our readers, who will no doubt weigh in on whether they were surprised to see this development, and what it means for Scientology watchers and Scientology itself.

                Knowledge Report: Scientology Controls Reproduction

Mark Bunker came back and spent another day with me
to get the stories of what goes on inside the "CHURCH"
This is a teaser

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9vCamOCnz_Q&feature=player_embedded

For 25 years girls at Int base were forced to have abortions at Planned Parenthood in Riverside. Sometimes it was as many as 5 a week

The reality of coerced abortions

In 1977, in response to the high volume of Scientology staff sent to have abortions, the head of Planned Parenthood in Riverside, CA (Janet Honn-Alex) said, "I just felt that it was strange that they would all make the same decision. Independent of their individual circumstances, they had all made the decision to have an abortion, no matter how old they were or how many children they already had. We found that almost unbelievable. And when we started asking more questions, in order to find out their individual motives, because we were suspicious, they stopped coming to us altogether."

                                          The Return of the World Class Idiot

August 1, 2012 by XENU TV 
Filed under Latest News

Leave a Comment

I had forgotten about John Bowen Brown II who seems to me one of the dopiest guys around.  He engaged me in a silly exchange of emails and then sent a legal threat to me.  (Side note, Brown’s business at the time was selling legal services.)

Today I got an email from a reporter, asking me about Brown and Anonymous.

    Dear Mr. Bunker,
    I am a reporter who submits articles to Indymedia. About four days ago, a member of the group Anonymous came to Mr. Brown’s door, referred to a you and shook his arm at Mr. Brown. No connection was made between all of you until I entered Mr. Brown’s name into a search engine. You have a site (xenutv.com). On that site Mr. Brown’s address is posted while blanking your own address out in a letter sent to you by Mr. Brown’s attorney.  By your posting Mr. Brown’s address allowing the group Anonymous, who does frequents your site, to come to Mr. Brown’s door., your are stalking Mr. Brown. I believe you are in a conspiracy to do so. Why else would you  blank out your own address and not Mr. Brown’s, if not to at encourage harassment of Mr. Brown.  Its it my understanding that it is an implied threat. I live in Northern, CA and I am familiar with the severity of California stalking laws. If you did this to me you would be in jail right now. I would like to invite your comments. My deadline for this article is August 9.

    Regards,

    Anderson Grant


I get lots of media requests and am always happy to oblige any way I can but this one was incredibly bizarre.   I hadn’t thought of Brown in over two years and I can’t imagine anyone else has in that time except Brown himself.  I sent him this reply.

    I’d say your email does not sound like that of a reporter.  A real
    reporter might say there have been allegations that you are stalking a
    certain individual but you make the claim yourself.  You further
    suggest that there is a conspiracy.  Surely a journalist would know
    better than that.  These and other reasons suggest to me that you
    can’t really be serious.

    A Google search shows nothing posted from you except one neo-pagan related
    anti-Anonymous post:

    http://www.indymedia.org/es/2012/06/957140.shtml

    Isn’t that dope Brown involved with neo-pagan nonsense?  Are you a
    friend of the dope or are you the dope himself using a fake name to
    accuse me of some nonsense?

    But if you would like a quote I suggest this:  ”I sincerely hope the
    dope recovers from having an arm waved at him.”

His deadline is over a week away so if anyone has any further details for his story, feel free to pass them along.

As for his conspiracy, this intrepid reporter should learn to use Google because here is John Bowen Brown II’s name and address on the Arizona Corporation Commission’s page.

Your honor.  I rest my case.
