RTÉ Prime Time - "Scientology - The Return to Ireland ”

Pete Griffiths

 Published on Dec 18, 2018 From the RTÉ Prime Time blog, by Rita O'Reilly: Scientology has tried to make it big in Ireland before,

 but now it’s back with a multi-million euro investment in three new facilities – one around the corner from Government Buildings in Dublin’s Merrion Square, another in the suburb of Firhouse, and a third, through its affiliated Narconon group, in Ballivor, County Meath. It’s an expensive return, but it’s not been a popular one, and indeed, it’s been marked by controversy.

 What is it about Scientology?

After all, it is tiny.

Though it claims a membership of millions worldwide, the available evidence suggests tens of thousands.

 Here in Ireland, in the last census, just 87 people said they were Scientologists.

 The comparator often used is, ‘Well, how many people claim to be Jedi knights?’, and in Ireland’s census, there were 2,000.

Yet, its tiny membership has not deterred Scientology. It has said its investment has been funded by donors abroad. Its return is a big effort – aside from the new facilities, its spend is on outreach, with free events, Google and mobile ads, Promoted tweets, mailshots, booklets, and leaflets through your door – all material printed at its own distribution works in Los Angeles.

Why Ireland?

 Well, contrary to reports, we’re nothing special. Since the start of last year, Scientology has opened over a dozen new buildings worldwide.

They follow a formula it keeps repeating: its leader, David Miscavige and committed members fly in to the openings, which are staged events.

Videos of those launches are then shown at annual internal gala events, where donor members are dazzled with special Scientology statistics promoting its claim of rapid expansion.

Scientology calls additions like Firhouse, ‘Ideal Organisations’, and it says that Mr Miscavige “personally supervises the selection of each new Ideal Org”.

 The weekend after its Firhouse centre opened in October 2017, Scientology launched another building in Birmingham, and the weekend after that, in Amsterdam: three weekends in a row – all staged openings, off-limits to the general public.

The organisation already has a Brussels office and its European headquarters is in Copenhagen. Journalist Tony Ortega, editor of the ‘The Underground Bunker’, has reported on Scientology for over two decades.

He points out: “The new Ideal Org in Dublin is not a new European centre or headquarters, it has nothing to do with Brexit and it has nothing to do with taxes.

The Church of Scientology is already tax exempt in the United States, it pays no taxes; it is not looking for new tax shelters.”

But its office in Merrion Square, opened in 2015, is one of only a few ‘National Affairs’ offices it has.

“These are moves that reflect what David Miscavige has done in the United States”, Mr Ortega says. “Several years ago, Miscavige refurbished a building in Washington DC for a new ‘national affairs office’.

It was a new sort of idea for Scientology – they then extended that to Ireland. And why Merrion Square? Well, because it means a lot to Scientologists, that location, because L Ron Hubbard himself had worked out of Merrion Square back in the 1950’s.”

It was at the end of 1955, and Scientology’s creator, L Ron Hubbard was already a controversial figure.

He had been refused a visa renewal to the UK, where he had a base, and he had temporarily moved to Ireland to what he called “the swankiest address in Dublin”, Merrion Square. On 17 April 1956, while he was still based there, the Director of the FBI, J Edgar Hoover, noted that in divorce proceedings, Hubbard’s second wife, Sara Northrup, had described him as “hopelessly insane”.

 “His recent letters have been unanswered inasmuch as he is considered obviously a mental case”, Mr Hoover wrote.

At the time, (20 April 1956) L Ron Hubbard was writing to his followers that his Merrion Square office was a “British fallback point in the event of atomic attack”.

His stay was short lived: he left within months.

 His organisation, Scientology, however, set up in Ireland from the 1980’s. Mike Garde of Dialogue Ireland has followed its arrival, decline and return since then.

He says that though it is small, its impact can be devastating. “I’ve been dealing with the families of people from Malin Head to Mizen Head in this country who have been affected by this Scientology organisation”, Mike Garde says, “breakup of marriages, breakup of families – of one guy, he became addicted completely to alcohol, they tore him apart”.

It is that concern and concerns like it that led to tonight’s Prime Time: ‘Scientology – The Return’

I have been searching around for more information on what I heard in a YouTube video with Jon Atack and Steve Hassan. Jon talks about Hubbard raping children but I can find nothing on the net about this. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Here is the video below. Jon talks about Hubbards pedophilia at 20:39.

Truly disturbing.

Steve Hassan sits down with Jon Atack after not seeing each other for many years and has a very revealing conversation about L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology, his important and tireless work exposing the cult, and the significance of his research. Jon has one of the best minds I have ever encountered. He remembers everything Hubbard has written and everything that was written (of significance) about Hubbard and the group and wrote the definitive book on the founder and teachings of the group. This book is a must read for everyone who has ever been involved with Scientology in any way! Note: It has been questioned whether climbed the Scientology Bridge twice, and said that he was actually Class IX, rather than Class XII. Jon Atack was told this by a Scientology official, but suggests caution, until this is checked. As ever, he would appreciate accurate information. Don't be shy, Jon is always happy to be put right on even the slightest detail.

Spurned attorneys look for answers in Scientology case

GILBERT GARCIA


Gilbert Garcia Aug. 29, 2017 

https://www.expressnews.com/news/news_columnists/gilbert_garcia/article/Spurned-attorneys-look-for-answers-in-Scientology-12159669.php

— Monique Rathbun (right) and her husband Mark "Marty" Rathbun (left) of Ingleside, Texas sit in their home Thursday July 7, 2011 while discussing Mark Rathbun's involvement with the Church of Scientology. Mark Rathbun has become a critic of the views held by the organization of the group and says a group claiming to be documentary 

Why did Marty Rathbun flip?

That was the question that hovered over the legal proceedings in a Bexar County courtroom Tuesday morning.

It’s the question that has gripped Scientology watchers for more than a year, a question that compelled a team of three high-powered local attorneys to file a petition last month against Rathbun, the former second-in-command of the controversial Church of Scientology, and his wife, Monique.

Marty Rathbun spent 27 years in the church. During that time, he was known for being a hardball operator. For example, Joseph Yanny, a former Scientology lawyer, said in 1988 that Rathbun told him to steal the medical records of a Scientology critic from the Betty Ford Center for blackmail material.

By Rathbun’s own admission, he arranged to tap the phone of actor Tom Cruise’s then-wife, Nicole Kidman (a Scientology skeptic), as part of an effort by church leader David Miscavige to keep Cruise in the Scientology fold by breaking up the Cruise-Kidman marriage.

Rathbun left the church in 2004, and after hiding out for a few years, emerged as one of Scientology’s most prominent and caustic critics. In response, church loyalists camped out next to the Rathbuns’ home in the South Texas coastal town of Ingleside, videotaped their every move and made their lives’ miserable.

The pranks allegedly included the mailing of an adult toy to Monique’s place of employment and the sending of flowers to one of Monique’s female co-workers, with a romantic note made to appear as though it came from Monique.

After moving to Bulverde in 2012 to escape the alleged stalking, the Rathbuns hired attorneys Ray Jeffrey (the former mayor of Bulverde), Elliott Cappuccio and Marc Wiegand to file a harassment lawsuit against the church. The lawsuit offered not only the possibility of a payout from the church but also the hope that the elusive Miscavige could be forced to testify.

Then, without warning (and without cause), Monique and Marty fired their lawyers in January 2016. Four months later, the couple dropped its lawsuit against the church.

Jeffrey, Cappuccio and Wiegand smelled something foul.

They couldn’t help but notice that Marty — after years of harsh attacks against Miscavige and the church — started softening the tone of his blog in early 2016 and began to redirect his fire at what he called the ASC (Anti-Scientology Cult). They found it strange that in 2015 the Rathbuns, without informing their lawyers, moved back to Ingleside, where they somehow found the means to purchase a home appraised at $264,000.

They wondered what Monique meant when she said, in a motion to dismiss the case, “My husband and I have effectively achieved the primary purpose that the lawsuit was originally intended to serve, by our own independent efforts.”

The Rathbuns’ former attorneys had worked for 2½ years on a contingency basis, meaning they didn’t earn a penny from their efforts. They suspected that Marty and Monique dropped the lawsuit (and their criticisms of Scientology) in exchange for a secret payment from the church.

So Jeffrey and co. did something that lawyers hate to do: They initiated legal action against a former client. It’s something that Jeffrey says he has never done in 32 years of legal practice.

The attorneys’ petition is a request for an order that will allow them to take depositions from the Rathbuns and comb through the couple’s financial records. It would allow the attorneys to see what kind of case they have before they commit to a lawsuit against the couple.

Jeffrey stood Tuesday in front of District Court Judge Karen Pozza and told her, “Your honor, you didn’t know it when you woke up this morning, but you’re dipping your toe into the world of Scientology-related litigation.”

He added: “It sure looks likely that some sort of a settlement was done behind our backs.”

The Rathbuns’ new attorney, Richard Reynolds, tried to get Pozza to throw out Jeffrey’s 12 exhibits, but the judge admitted all of them. At the end of the hearing, she asked Jeffrey and his co-counsel to narrow the scope of their request and said she would come back with a ruling on Thursday.

It was a low-key hearing on a procedural matter in a near-empty courtroom. But the drama was unmistakable. For decades, the Church of Scientology has been an institution driven by paranoia and the intimidation of anyone who attempts to penetrate its wall of obfuscation.

Jeffrey and co. are trying to knock some bricks out of that wall.

The Decline (and Probable Fall) of the Scientology Empire - Jim Lippard

NCASVideo

Published on Mar 6, 2013

Jim Lippard spoke on the history of the Church of Scientology, how it has collided with the Internet and lost control of its secrets and its membership, and is now seeing an accelerating decline as its top members leave for new alternatives. Jim Lippard founded the Phoenix Skeptics in 1985, and co-founded the Phoenix Area Skeptics Society in 2011. He's written articles and book chapters on skeptical topics, including two articles in Skeptic magazine on Scientology, "Scientology vs. the Internet" in 1995 (co-authored with Jeff Jacobsen) and "The Decline (and Probable Fall) of the Scientology Empire" in 2012. He also contributed to Gordon Stein's Encyclopedia of the Paranormal and Joe Nickell's Psychic Sleuths. Video notes starting at 13:50: The Fraser Mansion, though referred to by Scientology as the "founding church" from the 1970s to 2010, wasn't the original building. The original building, at 1812 19th St. NW, is now a museum called the L. Ron Hubbard House (though his house was across the street), which the church acquired in 2004. The Fraser Mansion is now Scientology's National Affairs Office. The first use of the name "Church of Scientology" was by the Church of Scientology founded in Camden, N.J. in Dec. 1953; the first Church of Scientology corporation was in Los Angeles (Feb. 1954, which became the Church of Scientology of California in 1956), the Church of Scientology of Arizona was incorporated that same year. Hubbard's organization while he lived in Phoenix was the Hubbard Association of Scientologists, International (HASI), founded in Sep. 1952. All HASI assets were folded into the Church of Scientology of California in 1966. (Views expressed are those of the speaker and do not necessarily represent the views of the National Capital Area Skeptics.)

The British nobility has been working on a Grand Plan to make themselves the ruthless ruler of the entire world.

The rest of humanity does not agree to their idea that the British nobility should rule the world.

They do not want to be obedient subjects, servants and slaves who live under the boot and say-so of the British aristocracy.

Most men want to live as free men who live under their own will and say-so.
Thus the British slavemasters conducted mental and spiritual research.

Their real interest in studying the human mind and spirit was to learn how to control men, so they could modify his behavior into what they want all men to be – willing subjects under rule by the British nobility.

​The Cecil family is one of the top British slavemaster families.

Their family has been the head of British intelligence for over 400 years. Robert Cecil was the leader of an influential family called the Cecil Bloc.

He was the head of British intelligence and he was a British Prime Minister.           

                                                 
Robert Arthur Talbot Gascoyne-Cecil (Lord Salisbury)

One of his sisters had a son named Arthur Balfour.

He was in the Cecil family and he was also a head of British intelligence and a Prime Minister of Britain.  
Arthur J. Balfou

 When Ron Hubbard was a teenager he was recruited by British intelligence.

Thereafter he executed one intelligence assignment after the other for his entire life. 

They groomed Hubbard to be the front man for their subjects of Dianetics and Scientology.

You can read about that in Scientology Roots Chapter Seven – The First Scientologists and Their Masters. 

The common denominator that explains all of Hubbard’s actions in life …. 

Ron Hubbard told Scientologists to support the British New World Order. 

He advocates the worst sociopaths in the world having direct control over the life of every individual person.

The ROOM
The ROOM was an outcropping of the previously formed Naval Reserves.

The ROOM was the forerunner of the Office of Strategic Services – which was the forerunner of the Central Intelligence Agency.

A record from the office of the Secretary of the Navy and the Chief of Naval Operations shows that Hubbard took an “Intelligence Course” from 21 October 1941 to 11 November 1941. . Here is the record from the SECNAV/CNO office files . It says – based on an order that happened on August 11, 1941 (410811), an order was issued on September 30, 1941 that nominated Hubbard to take an Intelligence Course. 15 October 1941 – Office of Naval Intelligence Foreign Intelligence Branch and its Special Intelligence Section (OP-16-F-9) was officially shifted to William Donovan’s Office of the Coordinator of Information, where they went under the COI Special Intelligence Section headed by David K.E. Bruce.   - OP-16-F-9 was now under David K.E. Bruce. At the time of the transfer, thirteen agents had been recruited. Ron Hubbard was one of them.  (See 67 in the References) 20 October 1941 – Hubbard moves to the Explorers Club in New York.  73  21 October 1941 to 11 November 1941 Hubbard took the Intelligence Course. He did this when all Naval Intelligence was now underneath William Donovan.This secret Intelligence Course was done outside of the United States. The proof is this letter that was sent to Hubbard while he was taking the Intelligence Course.  A Century of Naval Intelligence documents that – “At the outbreak of World War II, the Special Intelligence Section (OP-16-F-9) comprised one retired officer, two Naval Reserve officers, two enlisted sailors, and one Naval Reserve officer undergoing training in London.” 

All of the basic mental, spiritual, and religious ideas found in Dianetics and Scientology were already developed by the Society for Psychical Research, before L. Ron Hubbard was even born.  That includes the therapy used.

Lafayette Ronald Hubbard (/ˈhʌbərd/ HUB-ərd; [1] March 13, 1911 – January 24, 1986) was an American author of science fiction and fantasy stories, and the founder of the Church of Scientology. In 1950, Hubbard authored Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health and established a series of organizations to promote Dianetics. In 1952, Hubbard lost the rights to Dianetics in bankruptcy proceedings, and he subsequently founded Scientology. Thereafter Hubbard oversaw the growth of the Church of Scientology into a worldwide organization.  Hubbard was cited by Smithsonian magazine as one of the 100 most significant Americans of all time 
Born in Tilden, Nebraska in 1911, Hubbard spent much of his childhood in Helena, Montana. After his father was posted to the U.S. naval base on Guam, Hubbard traveled to Asia and the South Pacific in the late 1920s. In 1930, Hubbard enrolled at George Washington University to study civil engineering, but dropped out in his second year. He began his career as a prolific writer of pulp fiction stories and married Margaret "Polly" Grubb, who shared his interest in aviation.
Hubbard served briefly in the Marine Corps Reserve and was an officer in the Navy during World War II. He briefly commanded two ships, but was removed from command both times. The last few months of his active service were spent in a hospital, being treated for a duodenal ulcer. 
During the late 1960s and early 1970s, he spent much of his time at sea on his personal fleet of ships as "Commodore" of the Sea Organization, an elite, paramilitary group of Scientologists.[8][9] Some ex-members and scholars have described the Sea Org as a totalitarian organization marked by intensive surveillance and a lack of freedom. Hubbard returned to the United States in 1975 and went into seclusion in the California desert. In 1978, a trial court in France convicted Hubbard of fraud in absentia. In 1983 Hubbard was named as an unindicted co-conspirator in an international information infiltration and theft project called "Operation Snow White".[11][12] He spent the remaining years of his life in a luxury motor home on his California property, attended to by a small group of Scientology officials including his physician. In 1986, L. Ron Hubbard died at age 74. The Church of Scientology describes Hubbard in hagiographic terms,[14] and he portrayed himself as a pioneering explorer, world traveler, and nuclear physicist with expertise in a wide range of disciplines, including photography, art, poetry, and philosophy. Though many of Hubbard's autobiographical statements have been found to be fictitious,[15] the Church rejects any suggestion that its account of Hubbard's life is not historical fact. 
His critics have characterized Hubbard as a mentally-unstable chronic liar




The Death of L Ron Hubbard:

What was David Miscavige really thinking?

XenuForPresident

Published on Mar 10, 2009

Originat text: The infamous David Miscavige announcement of the joyous Death of L. Ron Hubbard in January of 1986. Whilst watching it to grab some footage, I wondered what might really have been going through Miscavige's mind whilst he was announcing the madman Hubbard's death. That gave me the idea for this quick little edit which will hopefully keep you amused until my proper video is ready (hopefully sometime next week). All I really did was add subtitles, but it amused me for a few minutes! Enjoy, and for clearer subtitles, please click on the "Watch in high quality" link to the bottom right of the video window.


The Unbreakable Miss Lovely

http://www.wikipediaexposed.org/scientology_ronhubbard_mi6_cia.html

 - The story of Paulette’s terrifying ordeal is told in full for the first time in The Unbreakable Miss Lovely, published by Silvertail Books in London. It reveals the shocking details of the darkest chapter in Scientology’s checkered history, which ended with senior members in prison, and the organization’s reputation permanently damaged. “A brilliant exposition of how a child who escaped the Nazis grew up to be hunted by the Church of Scientology” – BBC journalist John Sweeney.“A page-turner packed with barely believable facts. The details are worthy of John le Carre” – Jon Atack, author of A Piece of Blue Sky
Nathan Rabin, The A.V. Club: “Before Tony Ortega’s The Unbreakable Miss Lovely, Cooper’s story had never been told in full. It is one of the most remarkable and unlikely narratives in the sprawling field of Scientology exposés. Ortega’s specialty is his ability to contextualize Cooper’s soap-opera life within the raging currents of history. Cooper embodied her times: She was a child of World War II and the Holocaust, an orphan of one of the 20th century’s greatest tragedies who grew up to be the epitome of the chic New York career woman…Scientology’s persecution of Cooper comes to feel like a strange echo of the Watergate controversy riveting the nation at the same time. People who profess to be the victims of sinister, far-reaching conspiracies are often seen as crazy, but Cooper genuinely was the victim of a sinister, far-reaching conspiracy…In the kind of twist that fills The Unbreakable Miss Lovely and makes it such a compulsively readable page-turner, Cooper discovers too late that, like far too many people in her life, [L. Ron] Hubbard Jr. (or “Nibs” as he was known) was not what he appeared to be, and was probably a double agent working against Cooper on Scientology’s behalf…Cooper should have been destroyed by Scientology. But she proved astonishingly brave and bold. The book’s title proves appropriate both because Cooper is model gorgeous but also unbreakable, with a spirit strong enough to stand up to an entire organization out to destroy her and everything she stands for. In that respect, the book is oddly inspiring.”Kirkus Reviews: “Ortega, in his nonfiction debut, describes a journalist’s decadeslong battle against the Church of Scientology. There have been assertions of horror stories involving the Church of Scientology in a plethora of books, articles, documentaries, and interviews with ex-members. This new account focuses on Paulette Cooper, one of the first journalists to investigate what many see as the questionable moral practices of L. Ron Hubbard’s religion—and one of the first people, he says, to become a target of its vengeance. In a 1969 article in Queen magazine and later in a 1971 book, The Scandal of Scientology, Cooper offered a damning exploration of the church and its practices. “More than previous writers,” notes Ortega, “Paulette focused on the harassment of those who dared to speak up about Scientology, whether they’d been in the church or not.” In response to her words, Ortega says, the church set out to destroy her life with an unprecedented yearslong campaign of litigation, defamation, intimidation, and harassment that pushed the journalist nearly to the point of suicide.

Scientology showdown -- Marty Rathbun deposition 12/22/14


Definition of the Fair Game Policy of Scientology to handle Suppressive Persons that are negative to Scientology

Tony Ortega

Published on Jan 23, 2015

Story for this video is here... http://tonyortega.org/2015/01/23/vide...




Gerry Armstrong, the man kneeling in the dust on the top floor of the old Del Sol Hotel at Gilman Hot Springs that afternoon in January 1980, had been a dedicated member of the Church of Scientology for more than a decade. He was logging in Canada when a friend introduced him to Scientology in 1969 and he was immediately swept away by its heady promise of superhuman powers and immortality. During his years as a Scientologist, he had twice been sentenced to long periods in the Rehabilitation Project Force, the cult's own Orwellian prison; he had been constantly humiliated and his marriage had been destroyed, yet he remained totally convinced that L. Ron Hubbard was the greatest man who ever lived.  In November 1981 Armstrong  presented a written report listing the false claims made by Hubbard and putting forward a powerful argument as to why they should be corrected. 'If we present inaccuracies, hyperbole or downright lies as fact or truth,' he wrote, 'it doesn't matter what slant we give them; if disproved, the man will look, to outsiders at least, like a charlatan . . .'The messengers' response was to order Armstrong to be 'security checked' - interrogated as a potential traitor. Armstrong refused. In the spring of 1982, Gerald Armstrong was accused of eighteen different 'crimes' and 'high crimes' against the Church of Scientology, including theft, false pretences and promulgating false information about the church and its founder.

Gerry Armstrong, was declared to be a 'suppressive person' and 'fair game', which meant he could be 'tricked, cheated, lied to, sued or destroyed' by his former friends in Scientology. 'By then the whole thing for me had crumbled,' Gerry Armstrong,   said, 

'I realized I had been drawn into Scientology by a web of lies, by Machiavellian mental control techniques and by fear.

The betrayal of trust began with Hubbard's lies about himself. His life was a continuing pattern of fraudulent business practices, tax evasion, flight from creditors and hiding from the law.

'Hubbard  was a mixture of Adolf Hitler, Charlie Chaplin and Baron Munchausen. In short, he was a con man.'

L. Ron Hubbard Interview: Introduction To Scientology [1966]

What is Scientology? I'm not a proponent of L. Ron Hubbard or the CoS, but there is no denying he was an interesting character and had studied the occult and esoteric ideas. This is one of the only interviews he gave and was distributed by the Church of Scientology in the late 60s. He ponders the nature of man and an introduction to his new religion, Scientology.

The British nobility has been working on a Grand Plan to make themselves the ruthless ruler of the entire world.
The rest of humanity does not agree to their idea that the British nobility should rule the world. They do not want to be obedient subjects, servants and slaves who live under the boot and say-so of the British aristocracy. Most men want to live as free men who live under their own will and say-so.
Thus the British slavemasters conducted mental and spiritual research. Their real interest in studying the human mind and spirit was to learn how to control men, so they could modify his behavior into what they want all men to be – willing subjects under rule by the British nobility.
​The Cecil family is one of the top British slavemaster families. Their family has been the head of British intelligence for over 400 years. Robert Cecil was the leader of an influential family called the Cecil Bloc. He was the head of British intelligence and he was a British Prime Minister.

MI-6 Are The Lords of The Global Drug Trade
by James Casbolt
from JamesCasbolt Website
https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/sociopol_drugs

It may be a revelation to many people that the global drug trade is controlled and run by the intelligence agencies. In this global drug trade British intelligence reigns supreme.

As intelligence insiders know MI-5 and MI-6 control many of the other intelligence agencies in the world (CIA, MOSSAD etc) in a vast web of intrigue and corruption that has its global power base in the city of London, the square mile. My name is James Casbolt, and I worked for MI-6 in 'black ops' cocaine trafficking with the IRA and MOSSAD in London and Brighton between 1995 and 1999
My father Peter Casbolt was also MI-6 and worked with the CIA and mafia in Rome, trafficking cocaine into Britain. My experience was that the distinctions of all these groups became blurred until in the end we were all one international group working together for the same goals. We were puppets who had our strings pulled by global puppet masters based in the city of London. Most levels of the intelligence agencies are not loyal to the people of the country they are based in and see themselves as 'super national'.
It had been proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the CIA has been bringing in most of the drugs into America for the last fifty years (see ex LAPD officer Michael Rupert's 'From the wilderness' website for proof).

The CIA operates under orders from British intelligence and was created by British intelligence in 1947.

The CIA today is still loyal to the international bankers based in the city of London and the global elite aristocratic families like the Rothschild's and the Windsor's. Since it was first started, MI-6 has always brought drugs into Britain. They do not bring 'some' of the drugs into Britain but I would estimate MI-6 bring in around ninety percent of the drugs in.


They do this by pulling the strings of many organized crime and terrorist groups and these groups like the IRA are full of MI-6 agents.
MI-6 bring in heroin from the middle east, cocaine from south America and cannabis from morocco as well as other places. British intelligence also designed and created the drug LSD in the 1950's through places like the Tavistock Institute in London. By the 1960's MI-5, MI-6 and the CIA were using LSD as a weapon against the angry protestors of the sixties and turned them into 'flower children' who were too tripped out to organize a revolution.

Dr Timothy Leary the LSD guru of the sixties was a CIA puppet. Funds and drugs for Leary's research came from the CIA and Leary says that Cord Meyer, the CIA agent in charge of funding the sixties LSD counter culture has "helped me to understand my political cultural role more clearly".

In 1998, I was sent 3000 LSD doses on blotting paper by MI-5 with pictures of the European union flag on them. The MI-5 man who sent them told my father this was a government 'signature' and this LSD was called 'Europa'.
This global drugs trade controlled by British intelligence is worth at least 500 billion a year. This is more than the global oil trade and the economy in Britain and America is totally dependent on this drug money. 

Mafia crime boss John Gotti exposed the situation when asked in court if he was involved in drug trafficking.
He replied "No we can't compete with the government".

I believe this was only a half truth because the mafia and the CIA are the same group at the upper levels. In Britain, the MI-6 drug money is laundered through the Bank of England, Barclays Bank and other household name companies. The drug money is passed from account to account until its origins are lost in a huge web of transactions.

The drug money comes out 'cleaner' but not totally clean. Diamonds are then bought with this money from the corrupt diamond business families like the Oppenheimers.
These diamonds are then sold and the drug money is clean. MI-6 and the CIA are also responsible for the crack cocaine epidemic in Britain and America. In 1978, MI-6 and the CIA were in south America researching the effects of the natives smoking 'basuco' cocaine paste. This has the same effect as crack cocaine. They saw that the strength and addiction potential was far greater than ordinary cocaine and created crack cocaine from the basuco formula.

MI-6 and the CIA then flooded Britain and America with crack.

Two years later, in 1980, Britain and America were starting to see the first signs of the crack cocaine epidemic on the streets. On august 23, 1987, in a rural community south of Little Rock in America, two teenage boys named Kevin Ives and Don Henry were murdered and dismembered after witnessing a CIA cocaine drop that was part of a CIA drug trafficking operation based at a small airport in Mena, Arkansas.
Bill Clinton was the governor of Arkansas at the time. Bill Clinton was involved with the CIA at this time and $100 million worth of cocaine was coming through the Mena, Arkansas airport each month.
For proof see the books 'Compromise' and 'Dope Inc'.
On my father's international MI-6 drug runs, whatever fell off the back of the lorry so to speak he would keep and we would sell it in Britain. As long as my father was meeting the speedboats from Morocco in the Costa del Sol and then moving the lorry loads of cannabis through their MI-6, IRA lorry business into Britain every month, British intelligence were happy.
As long as my father was moving shipments of cocaine out of Rome every month, MI5 and MI6 were happy. If my father kept a bit to sell himself no one cared because there was enough drugs and money to go round in this £500 billion a year global drugs trade. The ones who were really paying were the people addicted. Who were paying with suffering.
But karma always catches up and both myself and my father became addicted to heroin in later years and my father died addicted, and poor in prison under very strange circumstances. Today, I am clean and drug-free and wish to help stop the untold suffering this global drugs trade causes.
The intelligence agencies have always used addictive drugs as a weapon against the masses to bring in their long term plan for a one world government, a one world police force designed to be NATO and a micro chipped population known as the New World Order. As the population is in a drug or alcohol-induced trance watching 'Coronation Street', the new world order is being crept in behind them.
To properly expose this global intelligence run drugs trade we need to expose the key players in this area:
Tibor Rosenbaum, a MOSSAD agent and head of the Geneva based Banque du Credit international. This bank was the forerunner to the notorious Bank of Credit and Commerce international (BCCI) which is a major intelligence drug money laundering bank. 'Life' magazine exposed Rosenbaum's bank as a money launderer for the Meyer Lanksky American organized crime family and Tibor Rosenbaum funded and supported 'Permindex' the MI6 assassination unit which was at the heart of the John F. Kennedy assassination.
Robert Vesco, sponsored by the Swiss branch of the Rothchilds and part of the American connection to the Medellin drug cartel in Colombia.
 Sir Francis de Guingand, former head of British intelligence, now living in south Africa (and every head of MI5 and MI6 has been involved in the drug world before and after him).
 
Henry Keswick, chairman of Jardine Matheson which is one of the biggest drug trafficking operations in the world. His brother John Keswick is chairman of the bank of England.
Sir Martin Wakefield Jacomb, Bank of England director from 1987 to 1995, Barclays Bank Deputy Chairman in 1985, Telegraph newspapers director in 1986 (This is the reason why this can of worms doesn't get out in the mainstream media. The people who are perpetrating these crimes control most of the mainstream media. In America former director of the CIA William Casey was, before his death in 1987, head of the council of the media network ABC. Many insiders refer to ABC as 'The CIA network.)
George Bush, Snr, former President and former head of the CIA and America's leading drug baron who has fronted more wars on drugs than any other president. Which in reality is just a method to eliminate competition. A whole book could be written on George Bush's involvement in the global drug trade but it is well-covered in the book 'Dark Alliance' by investigative journalist Gary Webb.
Gary Webb was found dead with two gunshot wounds to the back of his head with a revolver. The case was declared a 'suicide'. You figure that out. Gary Webb as well as myself and other investigators, found that much of this 'black ops' drug money is being used to fund projects classified above top secret.

These projects include the building and maintaining of deep level underground bases in,
Dulce in New exico
Pine Gap in Australia
Snowy mountains in Australia
The Nyala range in Africa
west of Kindu in Africa
next to the Libyan border in Egypt
Mount Blanc in Switzerland
Narvik in Scandinavia
Gottland island in Sweden,
...and many other places around the world (more about these underground bases in my next issue).
The information on this global drugs trade run by the intelligence agencies desperately needs to get out on a large scale.
Any information, comments or feedback to help me with my work would be greatly welcomed.

Robert Vaughn Young 1-1 Deposition in the Lisa McPherson Case



https://youtu.be/jyWPJplegfI


Slave Obeys

Published on Jul 4, 2010

This video series is an unabridged deposition in the Lisa McPherson wrongful death lawsuit against Scientology in 2000. This deposition is described in the first and second sections as an "emergency" because Young is suffering from terminal prostate cancer. The result is a fascinating view inside the Scientology organization at all levels, from one of its most trusted officers. Robert Vaughn Young (or RVY as he was known online in circles critical of Scientology) was a high ranking church official and eventual whistleblower. He was married to Stacy Brooks Young (now known as Stacy Brooks), but the pair divorced in the years following their exit from Scientology. From Wikipedia: ------- IN SCIENTOLOGY: Of his years with the Church, RVY said: I have held nearly every type of position at every echelon. I have worked at the local, the regional, the national and the international levels. I have been a Scientology representative and spokesman before governmental bodies, the media and the courts. I have trained others on how to handle the media and governmental agencies. I have been the most senior public relations executive for Scientology world wide. I worked for years at the echelon that handles critics, "enemies," the media, judges, the courts and the government. I have been privy to documents and tactics of the most secret nature, including illegalities committed by Scientology executives and the means of cover-up.[1] He was a national spokesman for the church.[2] RVY edited L. Ron Hubbard's ten-volume Mission Earth series. Young said that Hubbard had written the main text of the series, but that he had ghostwritten the introduction of each volume, as well as other writings in Hubbard's name.[3][4] AFTER LEAVING After leaving the Church of Scientology in 1989, Young became prominent as an expert in court cases regarding Scientology such as CSI v. Fishman and Geertz,[1] BPI v. FACTNet,[5] the Lisa McPherson civil trial,[6], cited by the press,[7][8] and as an Internet-based critic of the organization. His ex-wife, Stacy Brooks, was a member of the Lisa McPherson Trust. This frequently resulted in tension with his former organization.[9] Young was diagnosed with prostate cancer on November 23, 1999 and turned his energies to Phoenix5, a non-profit organization that runs a website on the disease. He died on June 15, 2003. ------- One day, I received a call from Stacy Brooks, and shortly afterward I began doing video work for Phoenix5, in addition to anti-cult video editing. This was my first contact with RVY. I was honored to have a chance to know him personally, even meeting him for a four hour lunch not long before he died. It was a long and intimate discussion, and at the risk of being indiscreet, I would like to address a point that - at the time - reputed Scientologists were gleefully parrotting about his marriage. Despite the black PR, RVY said that the breakup of his marriage to Stacy Brooks was not precipitated by Bob Minton; he loved Stacy, he said, wanted her to be happy, and considered Bob Minton a friend. Bob stole nothing from him, he told me; inside a cult, people have a commonality that can form the basis of a lasting relationship. Once that commonality is gone, one can find that the basis itself is in doubt. People are different outside of a cult than they are inside of it, and maybe something that worked in captivity doesn't work in the wild. That's my metaphor, not his. That's all the insight he gave me, but it's enough. I didn't know Robert Vaughn Young very well, but I was grateful for the time and talks we did have. When our lunch was over, I sat in my car and literally wept for half and hour, because I had barely gotten to know this dynamic, fascinating man, and he was likely to be dead in a few weeks. In fact, nearly a decade later, I'm weeping as I type this. I didn't know him well, and I didn't know him long, but he left his mark on me - the good ones always do - and I will always miss him. Rest in peace, RVY. We'll take it from here.



The last will and testament benefited David Miscavige, with everything left to the Religious Technology Center, which was controlled by David Miscavige at the time of the death of L Ron Hubbard.  
David Miscavige then took over as head of Scientology after the death of L. Ron Hubbard, the family of L. Ron Hubbard to really been mentioned in his last will and testament Robert Vaughn Young questioned whether the last will and testament was fraudulently changed after the death of L. Ron Hubbard, who he says at the time of his death, L. Ron Hubbard was not living in any reality and had become lost in the stories he created during his life and in the opinion of Robert Vaughn Young, L Ron Hubbard did at the time of his death was not capable of knowing the difference between reality and fiction. Robert Vaughn Young goes on to say that a story had to be created for the Scientology followers that made L. Ron Hubbard, immortal ….by telling all the Scientology followers that L. Ron Hubbard, immortal had thrown his physical body away for his spirit to be fee to search and explore the higher levels of Scientology

Looking over my shoulder,
The Inside Account of the Story That Almost Killed Me
Saturday, June 23, 2007
By Paulette Cooper

http://www.xenu.net/archive/personal_story/paulette_cooper/

The paperback cost less than a dollar. But the price the author paid - both in torment and in legal fees - was immensely more.
The author in 1967. Little did she realize the turn her life was about to take.
"I was named a likely suspect and the next thing I knew I was called to appear before a federal grand jury in New York."
The ledge surrounding the rooftop pool of her apartment building: the perfect spot for an "accident."


By 1974, the author wears the stress of her ordeal in her pained visage.

Cooper says her life is back on track, and that she is enjoying some well-earned time away from the pandora's box she opened nearly forty years ago.

You may not believe this, but you can write something that some group doesn't approve of and then have a quarter of your life almost ruined. I know because it happened to me.

I haven't previously written about this from beginning to end because it's still painful, but here goes. In 1968 I was a struggling New York freelance writer, searching for an investigative story that would make a difference. I was already used to controversy - and publicity - when a year earlier I had successfully stowed away on an ocean liner and wrote an article (and sold movie rights) about it that had appeared all over the world.

But when I next decided to expose a then relatively unknown organization called Scientology (and the related Dianetics, ) I ended up falsely arrested and facing 15 years in jail, had 19 lawsuits filed against me all over the world by Scientology, was the almost victim of a near murder, was the subject of 5 disgusting anonymous smear letters sent to my family and neighbors about me, and endured constant and continual harassment for almost 15 years.

I had obtained a master's degree in psychology and had studied comparative religion at Harvard for a summer. So I became interested in researching a newly-popular quasi-religious mental-health cult founded by science fiction writer L Ron Hubbard. I started by writing an article exposing Scientology for the British Harper/Queen, (now Harper's Bazaar) and expanded this into a book.

In it, among other things, I stated that the crux of Scientology - their e-meter which they say acts like a lie detector - produced questionable results; that Hubbard had lied about his credentials; that Charles Manson had called himself a Scientologist; that some auditors had behaved improperly toward their "parishioners"; that some who left may have feared being blackmailed; that some defectors claimed that they had been psychologically damaged by Scientology, financially ripped-off, and/or harassed when they tried to leave or speak out.

I soon got used to telephone death threats, harassing calls - and lawsuits.

I was occasionally followed - often conspicuously as if to upset me - and people seemed to be trying to gain access to my apartment. Then, in the basement of my small building, I discovered alligator clips on my phone wires - likely the remnants of a phone tap.

Next, my cousin - who was also short and slim like me - was in my apartment alone when a man arrived with a "flower delivery" for me. When she opened the door, the intruder pulled a gun out of the flowers and put it to her temple. Fortunately, the gun jammed, misfired or was empty. The man then began to choke her, and when she pulled away and screamed, he ran off. The police said afterward that they were mystified, because there appeared to be no motive for the attack.

I quickly moved to a safer doorman building. But soon afterwards, 300 of my new neighbors received an anonymous smear letter about me, outrageously describing me as a part-time prostitute with VD!

Then, a few weeks later, I received a visit from a pompous FBI agent named Bruce Brotman. He said the spokesman for the Church of Scientology in New York, James Meisler, claimed to have received 2 anonymous bomb threats and named me as a likely suspect.

I didn't take it seriously until I was called to appear before a federal grand jury - and was shocked to learn that I was the target (suspect). I had to hire a top law firm (I chose one headed by Charles Stillman) who required a $5,000 retainer on my meager freelance income. Little did I realize that they would ultimately cost me $28,000 (like $75,000 today) and they would unsuccessfully sue me after the case was over for even more money!

Even worse, during the grand jury, the prosecutor, John D. Gordon III, told me that if this Grand Jury decided that I had sent Scientology the 2 bomb threats, I faced 5 years in jail for each letter, 5 more for perjury for denying it, and $15,000 in fines.

He showed me the letters, and I truthfully testified that I had never touched or seen them before. Then Gordon dropped the real bomb. "Then how did your fingerprint get on one of them?" he asked.

I was so shocked I think I momentarily lost consciousness because the room turned upside down. I then rightly explained that Scientology could have obtained a blank piece of paper that I had touched, and typed threats on it afterwards.

But Gordon was unconvinced. On May 9th, 1973, I was indicted on all 3 three counts by the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New York. And 10 days later I was arrested, released on my own recognizance, and forbidden to leave the state without the court's permission.

For months, my anxiety was so terrible I could taste it in my throat. I was in a total panic. I could barely write, and my bills, especially legal ones, kept mounting. I couldn't eat. I couldn't sleep. I smoked 4 packs of cigarettes a day, popped Valium like M&Ms, and drank too much vodka.

I worried obsessively about the possibility of going to jail. And also about my career. I had been doing extremely well. I had 4 books out and I wasn't yet 30. But once these accusations came out at trial, what editor would give an assignment to a writer believed to have sent bomb threats to the people she wrote about? I had wanted to be a writer since I was 8 years old, and my dream life was about to be over.

I was also very concerned about my parents. They had adopted me from an orphanage in Belgium when I was 6, and I had always tried to make them proud of me. However, I knew they would soon be humiliated when the trial started.

The sexual revolution was going on then, and young people were also experimenting with pot, considering horrifying by adults (and jurors no doubt!) in those days. As a single photogenic woman involved in a bizarre case, I knew I would become the scandal du jour for the tabloids during the anticipated 3-week trial.

I tried desperately to prevent a trial. I made a writing barter arrangement with a private investigator, Anthony Pellicano - the same one in jail and in the news now - who I wanted to look into L Ron Hubbard Jr., the son of the founder, who I had worked with against his father but whom I now began to suspect had turned. But Pellicano did nothing.

I also volunteered to take lie-detector tests to prove my innocence. But they returned contradictory and inconclusive results, although not surprisingly, they did show me to be highly stressed.

My state of mind got worse when the man I had been dating for a year and planned to marry, a lawyer named Bob Straus, left me. Most of my friends also stopped calling because I was so obsessed with the horrors that were happening that it was all I could talk (or think) about.

On July 26th on my 30th birthday, I decided to end it. Fortunately, an editor friend at the New York Times stuck by me and called me. She kept me on the phone for hours to stop me from continuing to take the entire bottle of Valium I admitted that I had started to take that evening.

Another loyal friend was a new one, a short smiling redhead named Jerry Levin. He was sympathetic to what was going on and moved in with me late that summer. Since I was too depressed to go out much, he did my errands and walked my dog Tiki while I compulsively watched the Watergate hearings.

Occasionally, he would persuade me to go up to the rooftop pool with him at night when no one was there. He was a gutsy guy, and he would leap up to the 33-story high ledge and try to get me to join him. "You have to be brave if you're going to take on those bastards," he'd say. But I huddled below, a shadow of my former adventurous self.

Toward the beginning of September, I was in such a bad state that I even became slightly suspicious of him. When I questioned him, he turned on me, berating me for not even being able to trust my closest friend any more. Then he too walked out of my life, leaving me alone to face the trial.

The court date, October 31, 1973, was approaching when, a Professor and researcher from Scotland, Dr. Roy Wallis, came to interview me. Earlier, he had interviewed L Ron Hubbard Jr.

Boastfully, Jr. gave Roy a letter he wrote to his father, saying he could "bring the enemy to their [sic] knees" - and he had suddenly purchased an expensive house right after I was indicted although he had been broke. Roy brought this and other information he had gathered on Scientology's dirty tricks to Gordon, who had a growing file I had also given him on Scientology's "fair game law": That stated that an "enemy" of Scientology - such as me - "May be injured by any means by any Scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed."

But no prosecutor wants to give up a high publicity case. So I started searching for a doctor to give me a truth-serum test. After months of barely eating, I had gone down to only 83 pounds, and my health had deteriorated from the stress. Doctors refused me, saying I could die from the anesthesia. But I didn't care. I had decided to kill myself right before the trial rather than humiliate my parents (and myself) once the news stories came out.

Finally, a neurologist, Dr. David Coddon of Mount Sinai Hospital, agreed, and after several hours of questioning me while I was out, he was so convinced I was innocent, that he said not only would he testify for me, but he would chain himself to the courthouse steps if they proceeded with this case. (Just what I needed; more publicity!)

On Halloween day, 1973, the government postponed - and ultimately canceled - the trial, agreeing to file a nolle prosequi. I went into therapy for a year, and the depression lifted somewhat. But the threat of a trial and scandalous publicity remained over my head, because the government could still try me, and the press could still discover that I had been arrested for sending bomb threats and ruin me.

So for four long years, I was bitter - and broke - feeling that everything I had done was right and it had all come out so wrong. Strangers from all over the world continued to call me for help on Scientology, unaware of what I had just gone though. Since no one else was doing anything or speaking out against them, I continued to try to help Scientology's many victims (free), including those they were suing or who were suing them, and those who had lost their families and their money to them.

So the Scientologists therefore kept suing following and harassing me. As one example, when they found out I had seen a shrink, they broke into his offices and stole my records to find out what I had said during therapy - then sent excerpts of negative things I had said about my friends and parents to them. Nice, eh?

In July of 1977 I was flying home from Africa on a travel writing assignment when I picked up a copy of the Herald Tribune on the plane and couldn't believe the headline Washington Post story they had picked up: it was about me.

It seems the FBI had raided 3 Scientology offices and seized their internal memos after learning that they were engaged in a variety of criminal activities. And that included framing a writer who had exposed them and was working against them: me.

I was so happy; I thought that last I would be able to prove my innocence when I came home, which had become an obsession with me. But it took me four more frustrating years (during which time they harassed me more than ever, set me up with private investigators, and continued to sue me for nonsense, for example, for that Washington Post story, saying I had given it to them) before I at last saw those documents.

And then I spent 3 months in Washington D.C., reading all the nasty stuff they had done not only to me but to anyone who had ever said or done anything against Scientology. As I later told Mike Wallace when I was on 60 Minutes discussing the frame-up and their "dirty trick" papers: "Scientology turned out to be worse than anything I ever said or even imagined.

For example, one series of documents dated 1976 was a plot of theirs against me called "Operation Freakout." to get me "incarcerated in a mental institution or jail or at least to hit her so hard that she drops her attacks" on Scientology. It seems that after the first frame-up - a plot they apparently called "Operation Dynamite" - had failed to imprison (or silence) me, they plotted again to make it look like I was making bomb threats against them and others with fake threats sounding eerily like the '72 ones.

Mysteriously, there was also an anonymous diary someone wrote of what I did each day during the "frame-up" period, and how close I was to suicide. "Wouldn't that be great for Scientology?" the person wrote

And then I realized the writer could only have been Jerry Levin. He must have been a Scientologist whom they sent to spy on me and help Scientology set me up. He and his friends, Paula Tyler and a woman calling herself Margie Shepherd (who may be Linda Kramer from Boston, who married and may be Linda Kobern), had been in and out of my old apartment back when the threats were sent. And they had access to paper on which Scientology could have obtained my fingerprint and then typed the threats.

Even now I still wonder: why did Jerry want me to go up on that ledge with him? If he had pushed me over, everyone would have simply assumed that in my depressed state of mind, and rather than face a trial, I had committed suicide. Operation Freakout indeed.

A new grand jury in New York spent 3 years investigating my frame-up. Alas, the case went nowhere because the Scientologists refused to talk about what they knew about the frame-up. One, a Charles Batdorf, was even jailed for months for refusal to speak but still wouldn't talk.

But a simultaneous Washington, D.C., grand jury (and trial) ultimately jailed 11 Scientologists who were involved in wiretapping, infiltration and theft of government documents. Some had also been involved in the frame-up and harassment of me so I finally had some justice. I also initiated my own legal actions against Scientology while they piled on more suits, spies and harassment against me. Finally, in 1985, we reached an "amicable" settlement of all lawsuits.

Indirectly, through the lawyer who handled this settlement, I became reacquainted with Paul Noble, a New York TV producer, whom I had dated in my 20's, long before this all happened and we have been very happily married for 19 years now. I went on to write 11 more books, win 6 writing awards (including two for "The Scandal of Scientology,") do some travel writing, and have a newspaper column on pets. True, it's not as "glamorous" as the investigative reporting I did with Scientology, but at least dogs don't harass and cats don't sue.

I also quit smoking, barely drink, and try to forget what happened. Try. But when I see the news, or my e-mail, I'm often reminded of the years of torment I endured. Whenever I hear about litigation,or depositions, I remember the years (and money) I spent fighting the 19 lawsuits they filed against me from all over the world that I had to defend - not to mention that I was subjected to 50 days of depositions.

Or I read about something like prosecutor Nifong's going after the innocent Duke soccer players and I am reminded of what it was like for an innocent person to be prosecuted. Me. Or someone will send me inside information from a higher-up who left, like the affidavit from Margie Wakefield swearing that: "The second murder that I heard planned was of Paulette Cooper, who had written a book critical of Scientology, and they were planning to shoot her"

Other names keep bringing me back as well. My useless private investigator, Anthony Pellicano, is all over the news. My former attorney Charles Stillman often defends high-publicity clients. like the Reverend Moon. Bob Straus, the boyfriend who left me, went on to head a large New York organization that investigates judges. John D. Gordon III is with the high profile law firm of Morgan Lewis.

Bruce Brotman retired from the FBI and I was pleased to read negative news stories that appeared about him. It seems he left the FBI and became head of security at a big-city Airport and the local papers reported that he was fired when he refused to go through the security system, reportedly saying, "I make the rules."

Dr. Roy Wallis committed suicide in 1990, blowing his brains out when his wife left him. Dr. David Coddon died in 2002. And while I've never heard further of James Meisler or Charles Batdorf, I heard that Jerry Levin - which I'm sure was not his real name - is still a Scientologist.

Yes, I often wish I had never ever heard the word "Scientology," But despite all that happened, I would still have done the same today, because no one else was speaking out or working to expose them then. I would not have been capable of remaining quiet because I learned too many scary things and talked to too many people who were being hurt to turn my back on them.

Nowadays, thanks to the Internet, others are speaking out. And fortunately Scientology is not as litigious or vicious toward their critics. But if you think there's nothing bad happening to (former) members and/or critics, go read www.clambake.org (especially the message boards), www.lermanet.com, xenu.net, xenutv,com &.holysmoke.org for starters.

Sometimes I get discouraged because Scientology gets so much publicity from people like Tom Cruise, John Travolta, etc. And I wonder whether it was worth wrecking so many years of my life when they're so powerful again. But then I remind myself that I did help a lot of people. My book sold 154,000 copies - not that I ever saw any money from it and it cost me a fortune - and what I called "The Book That Launched a Thousand Suits" is really "The Book they Couldn't Kill," since it's still read today (free) on the Internet - in several languages.

Finally, some of the people who read my book (or the story of what they did to me which is also on the Internet,) e-mail me from all over the world to thank me, and that gives me satisfaction. My favorite was the man in his 50's who e-mailed me to say that years ago, after learning the truth about Scientology from me, he left the cult, married, has 4 children (2 are twins) and now runs a computer company employing 40+ people. He wrote to tell me that he feels that I am responsible for his happiness.

That reminded me of why I did what I did, and why we journalists do what we do: we try to tell the truth so that we can help others.

Unfortunately, we sometimes pay a terrible price for it.

MISS LOVELY
Scientology’s First ‘Victim’
L. Ron Hubbard called her a bitch, the FBI found files on her in its raids: The story of Scientology’s most famous critic.

M.L. Nestel

https://www.thedailybeast.com/scientologys-first-victim

Those were the choice words belted out by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard back in 1974 as he pounded on his desk while playing Commodore aboard his yacht, the Apollo.

Cooper, one of the earliest writers to look into the Church of Scientology’s inner workings, has long maintained that Hubbard (or LRH, as he’s often referred to) had it out for her. Just tally up the 19 lawsuits slapped against Cooper by the Church, the 40 lawyers she retained, and the 50 days of depositions—including one reportedly involving a Scientology lawyer who pressed Cooper for a stool sample. (Cooper quipped back: “If you want one, you’ll get it—on your head.”)

This story of Hubbard’s maritime rage is an incredible nugget in the middle of Tony Ortega’s new book, The Unbreakable Miss Lovely, which lands on bookstands this week. Ortega managed to unearth the anecdote after poring over a deposition of Tonja Burden, who was only 15 at the time. Burden was one of Hubbard’s "Messengers,” young females tasked with lighting his cigarettes, prepping his showers, and laundering his shirts “13 times to get any smell out of them.” LRH apparently had a nasty aversion to flowery scents, especially “rose perfume,” the book reveals.

The book’s title plays off Cooper’s supposed code name within Scientology, “Miss Lovely,” which she gained “because she was so beautiful,” Ortega told me. Other citizens have reported being harassed and bullied by Scientology, but nothing to the extent of Paulette Cooper’s story. She’s the first one many people think of when it comes to Scientology’s alleged victims.

The book is a wallop of a read and Cooper is presented as sympathetic, tragic, and, for a brief bit, unreliable, as she allegedly plots against the Church in her own way. But Ortega also makes some incredible claims that seem to rely upon deep reportage, tracking down people Ortega identifies as long-lost Scientologists and weaving their testimonials into a gripping narrative.

A Church of Scientology spokeswoman, in a statement, emphatically denounced the book and called Ortega “a parasite” for using “bigotry and false allegations about the Church of Scientology to create a cottage industry of hate.”

The statement went on to suggest that out of the many claims in the book, none of them dignify a thorough response.

“Despite Tony Ortega’s desperate need for publicity, we see no reason to revisit the subject or respond to debunked falsehoods concerning events three to four decades old involving individuals who have long since been expelled,” the statement read.

The Church added that it settled all claims with Cooper in 1985.

“It is a matter of public record that the current Church management disbanded the rogue unit with which she was having trouble long before then. The Church has neither heard from nor been involved in anything related to Ms. Cooper for 30 years,” according to a Church spokeswoman.

Out of all the writers who have gone head to head with Scientology, Cooper’s story is perhaps the most incredible. She was dashing and easily made hearts skip a few beats during her early years in Manhattan, where she lived and plied her craft as an independent journalist.

Cooper says she remembers how Scientology came knocking at her front door on June 6, 1968. It was the day after Robert F. Kennedy had been assassinated and Cooper was a twenty-something advertising copywriter trying to cut her teeth as a magazine stringer in New York City.

The Brandeis psych grad, who spent some time at Harvard studying mental health patients, says she received a former boss at her Manhattan apartment.

Cooper recounts in her own book how the man began singing Scientology’s praises and how he’d been doling out wads of charity cash to random homeless people. Then, Cooper says, he told her he was God, the lord and savior, and that "God has decided to rape you.”

Cooper managed to fend him off.

But her journalist instincts kicked in and she enrolled in classes at the Scientology Org in Midtown Manhattan under a pseudonym. She says she only lasted a few days before higher-ups in the organization's Ethics department were onto her. But Cooper says she remembers engaging in staring contests where she hallucinated—and says she was subjected to “bullbaiting,” wherein Scientologists allegedly chastised her for no reason and made propositions like, “You know what I’m going to do to you," supposedly to see if she would break.
Cooper ultimately began cobbling together her intel on this new religion and turned it into a feature story for the magazine Queen.
Before long, Cooper was living every day in fear, as she claims she was fielding death threats. She was convinced she was being followed and that her phone line was tapped.

In 1977, when the FBI raided the Los Angeles and D.C. offices of the Church, they found scores of documents that they used to send several high-ranking Scientologists to the slammer.
These same documents, Ortega's book says, also indicated that the Church had been monitoring Cooper’s movements since 1971 and ordered some members to lift pages from her diary, according to Ortega’s book. The group seemed particularly interested in the pages that catalogued teenage angst aimed toward her parents, the book says, or the ones that included sexually-charged thoughts.
Ortega’s book says that, in an attempt to frame Cooper, Church members typed up two anonymous bomb threats and sent them to the Church of Scientology headquarters in New York with Cooper’s fingerprints on them. Cooper maintains the Church got her fingerprints by getting a stranger to goad her into signing a petition to help the activist Cesar Chavez.

Soon, Cooper was hauled in front of a grand jury in Manhattan to answer for the terroristic threats and almost faced a trial until her attorneys used Cooper’s passing of a Q&A test, while on sodium pentothal, to get the charges chucked.
In the course of his research, Ortega says he managed to track down FBI Special Agent Christine Hansen. She was one of the few women at the bureau in the 1970s. This is apparently the first time anybody has managed to interview the former special agent. Because of her tenacity and eagle eye, on June 11, 1976, Hansen says she caught a Scientology member named Gerald Bennett Wolfe in the act of cribbing files from the IRS, the Department of Justice, and a dozen other government offices. He ended up serving five years in prison. His colleague Michael Meisner ultimately flipped for the Feds.

The reported effort to steal the files from government agencies and law firms was known as the “Snow White Program,” Hansen told Ortega.
Ortega also dives into “Operation Freakout,” the Church’s apparent attempt to target Cooper and frame her as insane, to get her committed.
Ortega’s book claims that a Scientology spy approached Cooper at a popular NYC watering hole and asked her to read a bad joke off of a piece of paper. Her fingerprints on the joke stationary were used, Ortega says, in threatening letters sent to then-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger. The Church allegedly enlisted a woman who sounded like Cooper and would be tasked with calling Kissinger’s office to make phone threats, as well as another woman cast to dress like Cooper and to play her doppleganger.
According to Ortega’s account of the documents seized in the FBI raid, Scientologists had instructed, “Several different outfits should have been obtained by [Paulette’s double] so that when the caper goes down, she can immediately change into the color or type of outfit that Paulette has on.” Then, the book says, calls would be made to Arab embassies with the Cooper lookalike claiming: “I’m going to bomb you bastards!”

After the raids, Ortega says, "Operation Freakout" was never fully completed.
Still, even after Cooper appeared on 60 Minutes to talk about Scientology, Ortega’s book suggests that several plots continued to target “Miss Lovely.” In one of them, a supposed friend called Jerry Levin, who had come into Cooper’s life suddenly and mysteriously, allegedly told Cooper to jump from a 33-story ledge above a rooftop swimming pool.
“Why on earth would Jerry want me to climb that ledge,” Cooper told The Daily Beast. “He was up there, it would have taken the slightest push and that would have been in it.”
According to Cooper, Levin was a secret Scientologist who had befriended her and lived with her during some of the lowest months of her life.
Not long after Levin moved out, and as Cooper was awaiting trial for making bomb threats (which she says were actually made by her Scientology impersonators), she says the only thing that saved her from a suicide-by-Valium attempt was a friend’s phone call wishing her a happy birthday.

By 1980, Cooper had decided to fight back against the Church. That was the year, the book says, that she met a private investigator named Richard Bast. (He passed away in 2001.) Cooper says Bast told her he was working for a rich Swissman who had lost his daughter to suicide. The girl had been a Scientologist and after her death, Bast said, the man had hired him to build a case against the Church.
The book says the two began to cook up ways to undermine the Church. Cooper would find every news clipping related to Scientology and bring them to Bast. But soon, the book says, Cooper started to hatch some of her own schemes to fool the Scientologists.

Ortega lays out how Bast suggested Cooper sleep with people in order to get intel and even allegedly suggested that a friend should plant drugs in the Church’s D.C. office, so that Cooper could then tip off the cops. “The point I want to make is, if we have any kind of police raid, this gay friend of mine.... probably [could] get us some. A couple of things you might want to consider—leaving them there that might make much bigger headlines. Like cocaine,” she told Bast, unaware that he was taping her statements, according to court transcripts that Ortega included in the book.

But Bast wasn’t working for a Swiss tycoon at all—he was doing the Church’s bidding, the book says. And he had caught Scientology’s Public Enemy No. 1 with dirty hands. Before they went through with some of the alleged schemes to attack Scientology, Cooper had discovered the damage she’d caused herself. Her reputation now seemed undone again.
Cooper’s lawyer Mike Flynn believed the tapes could actually benefit her case. “Whatever is on them, the fact that they hired someone to befriend you, given your vulnerabilities, will only backfire on them. Whatever you said would pale in comparison to what they put you through,” he said at the time, according to Ortega’s book.

Cooper’s lawyers expected that they’d have to spin Bast’s tapes in her favor in the many lawsuits she was facing. Yet not much was made of the taped chats with Bast until years later, when Cooper says she was confronted by researchers from a Scientology hub website, who asked her several questions about them.

The Daily Beast provided a Church spokeswoman with a list of some of the book’s claims, including Ortega’s contention that he found the man who called himself Jerry Levin (Ortega says he was known in Scientologist circles as Don Alverzo); that a Vanity Fair writer (who was friendly with Cooper) had been on Scientology’s payroll for years; and that Charles Manson was a Scientologist. Ortega says he worked off of many sources, including The New York Times and Cooper’s own book, in which she wrote that “one famous, in fact infamous person interested in Scientology that they do not boast about, talk about, or probably even want is Charles Manson, the convicted murderer of Sharon Tate and her friends.”

The Church stressed that it’s erroneous to say the convicted serial killer was a Scientologist. In the statement, a spokeswoman wrote that “the Church debunked the Manson myth four decades ago… Manson never had ties to Scientology.” While the Vanity Fair writer wasn’t named, Ortega says he did track down Alverzo, who allegedly played dumb on the phone. “I’m sorry, I don’t even understand what language you’re talking. I guess you have the wrong person,” Ortega says Alverzo told him.

Cooper says that she still has to look over her shoulder to make sure she is not being followed or watched by Scientology operatives. Since her run-in with Scientology, she’s gone on to pen almost two dozen books, though she’s steered clear of writing about the Church again.
Her newest book—Was Elvis Jewish? Plus Hundreds of Fascinating Facts: & Amazing Anecdotes no Rabbi Ever Told You—takes on the King of Rock & Roll and sets out to prove that his great-grandmother on his maternal side was Jewish. “He loved matzo-ball soup, his mother wanted him to be a doctor, and he had a nose job,” she told The Daily Beast. “Convinced?”
Meanwhile, “I’m hoping not to have too many problems when [Tony Ortega’s] book comes out,” she told The Daily Beast in a recent interview. “But the reality is that if you ever write a book against Scientology you have to be prepared to have them keep tabs on you for the rest of your life and I did a tremendous amount of damage to them over many many years so I have to accept the consequences.”

WASHINGTON, Nov. 23 (AP) — The Church of Scientology plotted to get a New York freelance writer who criticized the church sent either to jail or to a men- tal institution, according to court docu- ments made public today.
A church file dated April 1, 1976, described a plot called “Operation Freakout” that was directed at Paulette Cooper, whu in 1971 wrote a book entitled “The Scandal of Scientology.”
Church documents said the purpose of was to “get P.C. incarcerated in a mental institution or jail, or at least to hit her so hard that she drops her attacks.” Some documents mentioned specific plots in which the church planned to make bomb threats in Miss Cooper's name.
One bomb threat the church sent on her stationery resulted in her indictment on Federal charges. After two years of legal struggle, the charges were dropped.
The documents were among thousands the F.B.I. seized from the church's Los Angeles offices in 1977. Some were used to prepare a case against nine church officials who were convicted Oct. 26 of plotting to steal Government records on the church. Federal District Judge Charles R. Richey then ordered most of the church documents made public.
Miss Cooper said in an interview that the Scientologists had filed 14 libel suits against her book, made death threats and obscene phone calls and sent people phony letters about her sexual behavior. Miss Cooper is suing the church for $55 million, charging harassment.
Dennis McKenna, a church spokesman responding to the release of documents about Miss Cooper, said that the writer was “covertly working with the F.B.I. and other Federal agencies” to harm the church.

Buy ReprintsThe New York Times ArchivesWikipedia as at 4th June, 2019 on the Early Life of Lafayette Ronald Hubbard

Lafayette Ronald Hubbard was born in 1911, in Tilden, Nebraska.[18] He was the only child of Ledora May (née Waterbury), who had trained as a teacher, and Harry Ross Hubbard, a former United States Navy officer.[19][20]After moving to Kalispell, Montana, they settled in Helena in 1913.[20] Hubbard's father rejoined the Navy in April 1917, during World War I, while his mother worked as a clerk for the state government.[21]

During the 1920s the Hubbards repeatedly relocated around the United States and overseas. After Hubbard's father Harry rejoined the Navy, his posting aboard the USS Oklahoma in 1921 required the family to relocate to the ship's home ports, first San Diego, then Seattle.[22] Hubbard was active in the Boy Scouts in Washington, D.C. and earned the rank of Eagle Scout in 1924, two weeks after his 13th birthday.

The following year, Harry Ross Hubbard was posted to Puget Sound Naval Shipyard at Bremerton, Washington.[23] His son was enrolled at Union High School, Bremerton,[23] and later studied at Queen Anne High School in Seattle.[24] In 1927 Hubbard's father was sent to the U.S. Naval Station on Guam. Hubbard's mother accompanied her husband, while their child was placed in his grandparents' care in Helena, Montana to complete his schooling.[24]

In 1927, Hubbard and his mother traveled to Guam. The trip consisted of a brief stop-over in a couple of Chinese ports before traveling on to Guam, where he stayed for six weeks before returning home. He recorded his impressions of the places he visited and disdained the poverty of the inhabitants of Japan and China, whom he described as "gooks" and "lazy [and] ignorant".[25][26][27]

After his return to the United States in September 1927, Hubbard enrolled at Helena High School, where he contributed to the school paper,[28] but earned only poor grades.[29] He abandoned school the following May and went back west to stay with his aunt and uncle in Seattle. He joined his parents in Guam in June 1928. His mother took over his education in the hope of putting him forward for the entrance examination to the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, Maryland.

Between October and December 1928 a number of naval families, including Hubbard's, traveled from Guam to China aboard the cargo ship USS Gold Star. The ship stopped at Manila in the Philippines before traveling on to Qingdao (Tsingtao) in China. Hubbard and his parents made a side trip to Beijing before sailing on to Shanghai and Hong Kong, from where they returned to Guam.[30] Back on Guam, Hubbard spent much of his time writing dozens of short stories and essays[31] and failed the Naval Academy entrance examination.[32]

In September 1929, Hubbard was enrolled at the Swavely Preparatory School in Manassas, Virginia, to prepare him for a second attempt at the examination.[33] However, he was ruled out of consideration due to his near-sightedness.[34] He was instead sent to Woodward School for Boys in Washington, D.C. to qualify for admission to George Washington University. He successfully graduated from the school in June 1930 and entered the university the following September.[35]


Jenna Miscavige on The View, 2/05/2013

Jenna Miscavige appears on "The View" to discuss her book, "Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape."

Gerry Armstrong, the man kneeling in the dust on the top floor of the old Del Sol Hotel at Gilman Hot Springs that afternoon in January 1980, had been a dedicated member of the Church of Scientology for more than a decade. He was logging in Canada when a friend introduced him to Scientology in 1969 and he was immediately swept away by its heady promise of superhuman powers and immortality. During his years as a Scientologist, he had twice been sentenced to long periods in the Rehabilitation Project Force, the cult's own Orwellian prison; he had been constantly humiliated and his marriage had been destroyed, yet he remained totally convinced that L. Ron Hubbard was the greatest man who ever lived.  In November 1981 Armstrong  presented a written report listing the false claims made by Hubbard and putting forward a powerful argument as to why they should be corrected. 'If we present inaccuracies, hyperbole or downright lies as fact or truth,' he wrote, 'it doesn't matter what slant we give them; if disproved, the man will look, to outsiders at least, like a charlatan . . .'The messengers' response was to order Armstrong to be 'security checked' - interrogated as a potential traitor. Armstrong refused. In the spring of 1982, Gerald Armstrong was accused of eighteen different 'crimes' and 'high crimes' against the Church of Scientology, including theft, false pretences and promulgating false information about the church and its founder. He was declared to be a 'suppressive person' and 'fair game', which meant he could be 'tricked, cheated, lied to, sued or destroyed' by his former friends in Scientology. 'By then the whole thing for me had crumbled,' he said. 'I realized I had been drawn into Scientology by a web of lies, by Machiavellian mental control techniques and by fear. The betrayal of trust began with Hubbard's lies about himself. His life was a continuing pattern of fraudulent business practices, tax evasion, flight from creditors and hiding from the law. 'Hubbard  was a mixture of Adolf Hitler, Charlie Chaplin and Baron Munchausen. In short, he was a con man.'  Taken from: Bare-faced Messiah: The True Story of L. Ron Hubbard is a posthumous biography of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard by British journalist Russell Miller. Originally published: 26 October 1987 Author: Russell Miller, Genre: Biography, Page count: 380, Publisher: Michael Joseph, Subject: L. Ron Hubbard

Denise Miscavige; Scientology, Lies & Alibis (Part I)


Hibernia Eugenesis

Published on Dec 24, 2018

Kyle T. Brennan--who was not a Scientologist--died from a gunshot wound to the head in Clearwater, Florida, whilst visiting his Scientology-indoctrinated father, Tom Brennan. Clearwater, of course, is the site of the Church of Scientology's worldwide headquarters. During Kyle's brief stay there, Tom Brennan was under the watchful eye of his Scientology auditor, or advisor, Denise Miscavige Gentile, twin sister of the Church's leader, David Miscavige. Only twenty years old, Kyle was a bright and creative college student who suffered from mild depression and anxiety. He'd been seeing a psychiatrist and was taking a prescribed anti-depressant. As you may be aware, Scientology is vehemently opposed to psychiatry and psychotropic medications. According to Scientology, therefore, Kyle's medical treatment made him a "suppressive person," an enemy of the Church. Kyle's visit threatened his father's standing in Scientology. Because of Scientology's convoluted anti-psychiatry beliefs, the Church issued an order to Kyle's father to "handle" Kyle. ("Handling," in Scientology, means removing a trouble source.) Kyle was dead within thirty-six hours. His medication was found locked in the trunk of his father's vehicle.  Watch Denise and Brennan commit perjury to protect their cult.  For more information regarding the highly questionable circumstances surrounding the death of Kyle please refer to "The Truth for Kyle Brennan"  blog at;  https://vbreton2062.wordpress.com/201...

Published on Jan 22, 2014

Monique Rathbun is back in court today in New Braunfels, Texas for her harassment lawsuit against the Church of Scientology and its leader, David Miscavige. Several different issues may come up for discussion today. Monique filed a notice to depose David Miscavige on January 29, and Scientology responded with a motion to quash the deposition. Scientology also asked Judge Dib Waldrip to reconsider his order allowing Monique to depose Miscavige. But the main action today may be Monique's motion for sanctions. She's asking Judge Waldrip to punish Scientology because its employees, she says, have been dishonest in depositions and because Scientology has not turned over evidence.

Better Believe It: Steve Cannane on Scientology in Australia


The book called Fair Game The Incredable Untold Story of Scientology In Australia

By Steve Cannane


WheelerCentre

Published on Oct 23, 2016

Secretive, star-studded and litigious – the Church of Scientology holds a risky, irresistible allure for a certain kind of investigative journalist. There’s been some excellent reporting on Scientology in recent years, including documentaries from Alex Gibney (Going Clear) and Louis Theroux (My Scientology Story). Now, Walkley Award-winning journalist Steve Cannane digs deeper into the local activities of the religion with his new book, Fair Game. Scientology and Australia have had a strange, troublesome history. In 1963, the world’s first official government inquiry into Scientology was held here, and the state of Victoria subsequently (and briefly) became the first place in the world where the religion was banned. At the Wheeler Centre, Cannane’s focus is the church’s more recent history in Australia. He discusses the writing and research of Fair Game and his fascinating findings on the church’s recruitment of James Packer, its dispute with Julian Assange and its role in exposing abuses in Australian psychiatric facilities. He also addresses some broader questions about Scientology. Is the myth of Xenu any wackier than that of the virgin birth? How much does prejudice play into media discussions of the religion? And why are non-believers so fascinated by Scientology?

The Unbreakable Miss Lovely: How the Church of Scientology tried to destroy Paulette Cooper (w/ Q&A)



Carl Wong
Published on May 20, 2015

Introduction by Jim Underdown: 0:00 Tony Ortega and Paulette Cooper: 5:43 Q&A from audience: 40:04 In 1971, a magazine freelancer in New York named Paulette Cooper came out with her first book, “The Scandal of Scientology”, and it was the first popular book that gave the public a view into this secretive organization. She nearly paid for it with her life. What even Paulette didn't know at the time was the extent that Scientology and its founder, L. Ron Hubbard, would go to destroy someone it perceived as an enemy. By 1973, Paulette had been framed in an elaborate plot involving fake bomb-threat letters, and she faced 15 years in federal prison if convicted. Newly unearthed documents show that by that time, Scientology had kept her under tight surveillance for several years and proposed many ways to destroy her reputation and life. She was finally exonerated after the FBI raided Scientology in 1977 and found those documents, which referred to her by the code name "Miss Lovely." Eleven top Scientology officials went to prison after that raid, but more than 30 years later, Scientology is still around -- and so is Paulette. In his new, and first, book, “The Unbreakable Miss Lovely”, journalist Tony Ortega tells Paulette's story in full for the first time, with eyewitness accounts and new documents which describe the full extent of her ordeal -- and her continued fight against a group now seriously in decline. For the launch of the book, Paulette will be appearing with the author at a limited number of events as they talk about various parts of her life depicted in the book, from her childhood survival of the Holocaust to her much calmer life in Florida with her husband Paul, as well as the latest developments in the controversies facing Scientology today. Ortega is the executive editor of The Raw Story, a progressive political news site. From 2007 to 2012, he was editor in chief of The Village Voice, and he's been investigating and writing about Scientology since 1995, when he was a reporter for the Phoenix New Times. He also wrote for or edited weekly newspapers in Los Angeles, Kansas City, and Fort Lauderdale. Originally from Los Angeles, he lives in New York and maintains a breaking news website about Scientology news, "The Underground Bunker." He is also featured in “Going Clear”, Alex Gibney's documentary about Scientology, which first aired on HBO in March. Recorded on May 17, 2015 at the Center for Inquiry in Los Angeles, California.

Jon Atack and Steven Hassan discuss his 2013 edition of his book, A Piece of Blue Sky




Freedom of Mind Resource Center
Published on Dec 29, 2014
Steve Hassan sits down with Jon Atack after not seeing each other for many years and has a very revealing conversation about L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology, his important and tireless work exposing the cult, and the significance of his research. Jon has one of the best minds I have ever encountered. He remembers everything Hubbard has written and everything that was written (of significance) about Hubbard and the group and wrote the definitive book on the founder and teachings of the group. This book is a must read for everyone who has ever been involved with Scientology in any way! Note: It has been questioned whether climbed the Scientology Bridge twice, and said that he was actually Class IX, rather than Class XII. Jon Atack was told this by a Scientology official, but suggests caution, until this is checked. As ever, he would appreciate accurate information. Don't be shy, Jon is always happy to be put right on even the slightest detail.

Fascinating man Jon Atack. I have a feeling these guys could sit up and talk all night--kindred spirits--each an intellectual.

Piece of Blue Sky is the best scientology book. Buy 2 copies. One for yourself and one for your local public library.

Still the best overall book about Scientology
Round To It
I just ordered A Piece of Blue Sky online from a used book dealer, can't wait to read it. Thank you for posting this interview. Very interesting. 
Barny Fraggles
Thanks for posting this. Nice to hear from Jon 'in person'. As expected, a fascinating, compassionate and eloquent man with an encyclopaedic knowledge and balls of steel. Absolutely disgusting to hear about the Janet Reitman's lazy plagiarism but not all that surprising, she seemed notably ignorant of basic details during interviews.          
Exiles800
Whether intentional or not Atack made a fantasy book about Jimi Hendrix while his murder goes unaddressed in England. The affect is to relegate Jimi to the unreal and therefore impede the terribly denied justice he needs.

I used to be a heavy smoker (or so I thought) but 100 cigarettes a day sounds unreal. I don’t know how you can manage to smoke 5 packs a day, that’s half a carton. Must’ve been chain smoking every moment of the day.
Carolyn Bateman
Contradiction in a hypnotic technique that uses confusion and cognitive dissonance to bypass the conscious mind. So much of this technique is being used on main stream tv today. I.e. Building 7 has fallen when it is still up in the background. Or nonsense slogans like "we are for free speech- silence the fascists". It is fascinating in that it can actually cause nausea
Theresa Akins
i dont understand why The U.S. would censor your book. It is against the Constitution. And why would American courts side with Hubbard, a known enemy of the US!? Operation Snowflake should have taught the government not to trust Hubbard. Did he hold any sway with the Justice system or have powerful friends in politics to help him? I have read the contrary.
Anonimo Fiorentino
Hollywood writer Skip Press, while detailing his long-term and high-achieving membership in Scientology, recommends John Atack’s new book, Let’s Sell These People a Piece of Blue Sky. Press says the book is better than Lawrence Wright’s recent fine book on the church because ”Atack was actually involved with the cult and lived it.” (Morton Report, 11/7/13) [IT 5.2]


A Piece of Blue Sky: Scientology, Dianetics, and L. Ron Hubbard ExposedHardcover – 29 Jun 1999 by Jon Atack  (Author)
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Piece-Blue-Sky-Scientology-Dianetics/dp/081840499X

Atack exposes Hubbard's bizarre imagination and behavior, tracing the creation of Scientology in the years following World War II to perhaps its final schism following Hubbard's death in 1986. A shocking book that reveals all: the abuses, falsehoods, paranoia, and greed of Hubbard and his pseudo-military Scientologist henchmen.
A Piece of Blue Sky: Scientology, Dianetics and L. Ron Hubbard Exposed is a 1990 book about L. Ron Hubbard and the development of Dianetics and the Church of Scientology by British former Scientologist Jon Atack. The title originates from a quote of Hubbard's from 1950, when he was reported as saying that he wanted to sell potential church members a "piece of blue sky."[1]
The church's publishing arm, New Era Publications International, tried to prevent the book's publication, arguing that it infringed on its copyright of Hubbard's works. A court in Manhattan ruled against publication, but the decision was overturned on appeal.[2]
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Piece_of_Blue_Sky

John Atack the Author of A Piece of Blue Sky: Scientology, Dianetics and L. Ron Hubbard Exposed

Atack joined Scientology at the age of nineteen in 1974, and was based largely in the church's British headquarters at Saint Hill Manor, near East Grinstead. During his training, he said he progressed to Scientology's Operating Thetan level 5, completing 24 of the 27 levels of therapy or education.[3] He left the church in 1983 in disillusionment with the new leadership of David Miscavige, who took over in the early 1980s.[4] He writes that he saw the new management as tough and ruthless, and objected particularly to the 15-fold increase in training fees. He also objected to being told not to have relationships with so-called "Suppressive Persons," people the church had declared enemies and who should not be communicated with; one such person was one of Atack's friends.[5]
Atack left the sect as a result, and is now at the centre of what J. Gordon Melton calls an anti-Scientology network in the UK.[6] He is also the author of a booklet, "The Total Freedom Trap: Scientology, Dianetics And L. Ron Hubbard" (1992).

Synopsis
John Atack describes his personal experience in the church, provides a chronological history of L. Ron Hubbard, Dianetics and Scientology, researched from paper sources and interviews, and draws conclusions about the belief system of Scientology and its founder. The book also contains a preface by Russell Miller, author of Bare-faced Messiah.
Reception to the publication of John Atack’s book the Author of A Piece of Blue Sky: Scientology, Dianetics and L. Ron Hubbard Exposed

Legal action
Scientology's publishing arm, New Era Publications, attempted to prevent publication by arguing that the manuscript's inclusion of material by Hubbard infringed on their copyright of Hubbard's work, and would harm sales of the original texts.[7] The court ruled that the manuscript might discourage people from buying Hubbard's books by convincing them he was a swindler, and that copyright law protects rather than forbids this kind of criticism.[8] Before the outcome of the case was known, the publisher prepared two versions of the book: one with and one without Hubbard's quoted material.[2] After publication, Scientologists picketed Atack's East Grinstead home for six days and spread defamatory leaflets around his neighbourhood.[9]
In April 1995, a court in England found Atack guilty of libel against Margaret Hodkin, the headmistress of Scientology's Greenfields School in England, and issued an injunction forbidding publication of an offending paragraph.[10] The decision was upheld by the High Court in London in May 1995.[11] The case led Amazon.com to remove the book from its listings in February 1999, but it reversed its decision a few months later after customers complained.[12]

Reviews
Marco Frenschkowski, writing in the Marburg Journal of Religion in 1999, describes A Piece of Blue Sky as "the most thorough general history of Hubbard and Scientology, very bitter, but always well-researched."[13] It has been used as a source by several academic papers.[14] The Tampa Tribune-Times said that Atack's provision of extensive detail and source notes for each claim sometimes gets in the way of the story, but prevents the book from being just another bitter diatribe against Scientology.[4]

 A Piece of Blue Sky, p. iii: "It was 1950, in the early, heady days of Dianetics, soon after L. Ron Hubbard opened the doors of his first organization to the clamoring crowd. Up until then, Hubbard was known only to readers of pulp fiction, but now he had an instant best-seller with a book that promised to solve every problem of the human mind, and the cash was pouring in. Hubbard found it easy to create schemes to part his new following from their money. One of the first tasks was to arrange "grades" of membership, offering supposedly greater rewards, at increasingly higher prices. Over thirty years later, an associate wryly remembered Hubbard turning to him and confiding, no doubt with a smile, "Let's sell these people a piece of blue sky."

I have been searching around for more information on what I heard in a YouTube video with Jon Atack and Steve Hassan. Jon talks about Hubbard raping children but I can find nothing on the net about this. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Here is the video below. Jon talks about Hubbards pedophilia at 20:39. Truly disturbing.


Jon makes a profound observation at 49:00 to the effect that society contributes to making people vulnerable to Scientology indoctrination because of the authoritarian educational system and other manipulations like workplace team building and language usage

Steve Hassan sits down with Jon Atack after not seeing each other for many years and has a very revealing conversation about L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology, his important and tireless work exposing the cult, and the significance of his research. Jon has one of the best minds I have ever encountered. He remembers everything Hubbard has written and everything that was written (of significance) about Hubbard and the group and wrote the definitive book on the founder and teachings of the group. This book is a must read for everyone who has ever been involved with Scientology in any way! Note: It has been questioned whether climbed the Scientology Bridge twice, and said that he was actually Class IX, rather than Class XII. Jon Atack was told this by a Scientology official, but suggests caution, until this is checked. As ever, he would appreciate accurate information. Don't be shy, Jon is always happy to be put right on even the slightest detail.
