  1. Cof$: “The Church demanded such covenants from Cook for good and sufficient reason: Cook in the past had made similar false and misleading statements and the Church feared that she would do so again.”
    This isn’t a broad generality,is it?? LOL

    Cof$: “The Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization has withdrawn its motion for preliminary injunction to preclude the court being used further as a forum for the defendants to violate the rights of the Church and its members with more false and disparaging statements.”

    What idiocy, blindness, and ignorance! Just wants me to shout out loud, “WAKE THE F… UP, PEOPLE!!!”

    • Hahaha —>
      Cof$: “The Church demanded such covenants from Cook for good and sufficient reason: Cook in the past had made similar false and misleading statements and the Church feared that she would do so again.”

      hahahah it’s a lie and quite a hilarious one, that’s what it is. The Corporation Shamtology makes people who witnessed upper level travesties sign those things.

      Sufficient reason? hahahaha “In the past” Debbie Cook was a POWER PRODUCING person, a friend to the subject of Scientology and many many many people who recognize her and respect her as such — for nearly 3 decades!!

      Is David Miscavige is running out of good lawyers? Or too many transgressions and getting more stupider. Oh those statements are a riot!

    • Z,
      Yes, this one:
      “The Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization has withdrawn its motion for preliminary injunction to preclude the court being used further as a forum for the defendants to violate the rights of the Church and its members with more false and disparaging statements.”

      So, Dave sues Debbie, puts the matter before the Court and then says he’s not going to let Debbie use the Court as a forum, which he chose as the forum.

      This is public statement by the spokespooson is Shermanspeak.

      This is Dave getting a Rollback done to find out who started “pie face”.

      Dave, seriously, did you actually expect to get the Court to enforce your contract without some sort of response from Debbie? I mean, you’ve done some really, really stupid things, suppressively dumb, but I will grant that this one, as stated by the spokespooson, is one of the better ones.

      “We withdrew the motion for the injunction against any comment by Ms. Cook in her defence as it is apparent this person has no honor and will in fact speak in the forum we chose, in her own defense. This is heresy, a violation of ecclesiastical law, which proves that Ms. Cook is an apostate and an heretic. We feel confidant the Court will see this and hope they will do so in a Summary Judgement, unless of course they too are being paid by Big Pharma, which is obviously where Ms. Cook is getting her financing to defend herself, by speaking in the forum we demanded, and which we tried to preclude. Nonetheless, we shall forever support and champion Human Rights, unless the human is in fact an Illuminati, un-human, as Ms. Cook successfully hid from Mr. Miscavige for 17 years as a dishwasher at the Flag Land Base.”

      • Oh yeah, Ms Cook is obviously just having DM sue her for the money he will eventually try and pay to her to settle the suit that she got him to bring. And in that settlement, a new NDA will be signed of course. One that precludes Debbie from using any known language, sign or gesture to communicate to anyone, anywhere about anything. Which she is clearly happy about as attested by this here video.

    • JB that is so very funny! Especially the tanning thong, but did he forget the leopard skin one, he must pack that one too; you always need two for long trips. Thank you for the great laugh.

  3. And the beat goes on….. Lauri “Clueless” Webster sent me an email TODAY asking for money in the name of Superpower…. FOR GAWDS SAKES JUST SAY YOU NEED MORE MONEY TO PAY FOR THE LAWYERS!!!!

    Dear Friend,
    I hope this communication finds you well. I wanted to give you a small update on what is happening with this project. We currently have a tour out in the United States getting the incomplete statuses wrapped up as fast as possible and people are racing to finish their Cornerstone Memberships from Italy to Hungary to Australia, Mexico, the UK, Canada, Russia, Sweden and Germany, as well as others scattered across the United States! We are right on the home stretch and nearing the finish line. There is 5 weeks left until March 13th, LRH’s 101st Birthday Celebration, which is a very crucial time for meeting many targets and as you are a part of this group I appreciate all you have done to help thus far and I want to ask you now for a little more. Please do anything you can to complete up your next status or help others complete theirs before the time runs out on this once in a lifetime opportunity as it is making all the difference. I look forward to seeing you soon.

    ML,

    Lauri

    NOTE:

    “There is 5 weeks left until March 13th, LRH’s 101st Birthday Celebration, which is a very crucial time for meeting many targets…”

    What she is really saying is: “donate to the project and MAYBE it might get released, but I dont know and cant say and dont want to say that it might not.”

    I wish I could be in the audience on LRH’s Bday to hear the collective groans as the rolling thunder fades and the band stikes up and the audience realizes that YET AGAIN the targetS have not been met….

    Andy
    “…time and presure…”

    • The promo piece lacks enlightment of any kind. Where is the personal benefit?
      “I need my stats up ’till LRH BDay, gimme some money or ask some guys you know to give me some. Many did already.”
      Do they study LRH at all?

      “I wish I could be in the audience on LRH’s Bday to hear the collective groans as the rolling thunder fades …”
      With some digital technology David Miscavie could handle the distance barriere while hiding in a bunker in Bolivia (or Bulgravia).

    • Andy

      ….”Please do anything you can to complete up your next status or help others complete theirs before the time runs out on this once in a lifetime opportunity as it is making all the difference.”….

      I think Lauri is trying to use that line as a whip, because she knows that her stats will totally crash, and she will be sent to the RPF, or worse, the moment the “Super Power Project” is completed.

      Until David Miscavige has ALL the money, and ALL of the glory, he will never have enough.
      …….
      Satire to follow…
      …….

      The new creed of the Church of David Miscavige’s Scientology:

      “We of the Church of David Miscavige’s Scientology believe that we have the inalienable “religious right” to pillage the remaining Scientologists of anything of value and then scorch the ground where they stand. We will leave no stone unturned. We will totally destroy anyone who resists or balks. We will take no prisoners.”

      “We of the Church of David Miscavige’s Scientology firmly believe that we have the Inalienable, God given right, to ruthlessly dominate the peoples of Earth, and have every intention of doing so.”

      “We also believe that the only entity in the universe that has the right to create or adjudicate upon these rights, or any rights, or their violation, is David Miscavige.”

      “David Miscavige, COB”

  4. No disrespect to any Independents, but Debbie > Marty in terms of being a face for Scientology. Marty may have been a face to SO members and some staff but Debbie was the face to thousands of public all over the world as the Captain of FSO. Having David Miscaviges laundry (dirty is there any other kind?) aired by Debbie really just confirms what all the other former execs have been saying all along thus giving it even more credibility.

    That said, David Miscavige’s church will either retreat and run fast and try to spray fire retardant on anything it will stick to in an attempt to appease Debbie into silence or … David Miscaviges service facsimile will get the better of him.

    I can’t really see him backing down now, the church won’t stop their enforcement of their disconnection policy on people still connected to Debbie. So I kind of see this as being a long battle, but one that could very easily end with Miscavige blowing or being indicted somehow.

    Well at least that’s my hope.

    It’s very evident by the church’s response and the many before it, that they base their whole position, mindset and strategy (and keeping their flock of sheep inline) around Goebbels:

    “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    • “It’s very evident by the church’s response and the many before it, that they base their whole position, mindset and strategy (and keeping their flock of sheep inline) around Goebbels”

      Spokespeople of the Church and OSA are not the average Scientologists.
      He is not even a OL for church members. He enforces only his image down the Org Board. But what will Mr. Miscavige do when more and more doubts are rising? And they do. Visit a church. Look for yourself.
      The thing he pulled in with this one is beyond his skills to handle the mess.
      He lost. In the end you can only fool the body, not the spirit. That’s why his whole attention is towards MEST.

    • FOS

      No I can’t really see him backing down either.

      But he has already lost the war. He may have a temporary win in the odd skirmish but his “cause” is lost.

      By David Miscavige’s continuing covert and overt attempts to harass and threaten and belittle and coerce Debbie Cook into silence, he is actually strengthening her case. The harder he tries to shut her up, the more he seals his fate.

      In spite of how it may look, I believe that David Miscavige is totally the effect of Debbie Cook, at this point. He is 100% reaction, and no “reason” being applied at all. There is only enough Theta left to keep his dramatizations active. I would hazard a guess that even his body is starting, or continuing, to shut down.

      It is simply a matter of time before that little bit of Theta that is left, blows…..

  5. Isn’t great to see Debbie smiling again?!!! I love the video of the interview afterward with her attorney. There’s a post on Tony’s site where someone explains the details of a “summary judgement” and how it is very unlikely the church would actually be granted it despite Debbie admitting to signing the agreement. Did you see Debbie’s look of relief when her attorney said there’s no way the court would grant the summary judgement and this would go to trial where a jury would never side with the church but would go the other way?!! You could just feel the stress leaving her body and relief setting in.

    I’m sure the Church’s statement is being distributed widely in the updated DA pack on Debbie to the sheeple in the church who will never know what really went down or that they walked. That statement is all they will ever know about this case. I hope Debbie writes a book now and tells every last detail of her experiences with Miscavige.

    Congratulations to Debbie in her efforts to reform the church, this was definitely the Tipping Point.

  6. Sunshine is the best disinfectant.

  7. Debbie’s email on Jan 15, 2012, link in the second Village Voice article, is quite revelatory when referenced against HCO PL HOW TO HANDLE BLACK PROPAGANDA.

    As I read the email and Debbie’s real communication in it, I recognized she was clearly offering to parley. And David Miscavige and Co. clearly DECIDED to ignore this offer, and CHOOSE to act Debbie and Wayne on all fronts. They blindly started down a path that leads to nowhere.

    Well, the penny dropped this evening when I was reading the above reference. Particularly, under Point 6:

    “It is a long-to-find and hard-learned fact that people who engage in black propaganda have big bursting crimes to hide.

    They do not have little crimes. They have BIG ones.

    One’s own ability to confront evil may be too low to really grasp the black propagandist’s crimes or believe they exist.

    (Read this next bit real care like)

    Such people are often sanctimonious hypocrites. They are usually arrogant and will not parley (have conferences with a foe). They appear so terribly sure they are RIGHT that it fairly shakes one’s confidence that they could ever do anything wrong.”

    ….

    “But this makes them hard to suspect or detect. And it makes it hard to get anything bad about them believed.

    “But under all this are real crimes. Not stealing apples or pinching pennies as a child. Real crimes like extortion, blackmail, embezzlement and mass murder are sitting in their closets. Believe it. For in the course of your counterattack you may despair of ever finding anything.”

    ….

    “Always be ready to parley – this is have a conference and settle it. The arrogance of the black propagandist often forbids this. And when it does, it means longer and harder work and if well done, his downfall.” LRH

    Compare DC’s email of Jan 15 and the Black PR from CSI about DC over the last 6 weeks against the reference above. Add in the sworn testimony of extortion, blackmail, human trafficking, etc. and one gets a clearer picture of the real task at hand.

    ‘Hows that working out for ‘ya Davey….?

    Bottom line;
    “You blinked, you idiot!, YOU blinked!”

    You will NEVER regain the stature you once had……sad.

    Goodbye Davey, Goodbye…

  9. POST UPDATE: Check out latest from Tampa Times, link at top of post – video of Miscavige surrender, attorney Ray Jeffrey and Debbie Cook.

    • Great!

      Thank you so much for all your carring, Marty.

      And Debbie, love your attitude. Transparency == no W/H.
      It’s time to get the “reform code” IN.

    • Mark the video from viilagevoice is block. Check if someone already block the video on Youtube.

    • Debbie’s words in this video are powerul, I thought. She says:

      “If Scientology organizations were run strictly to Hubbard’s policies, that organization could be completely and utterly transparent, and it would be no trouble at all.”

      “I know from running Flag, that I would have been happy for anyone to know our financials, for anyone to come in … If all the walls in the whole place were glass, it would be incredible.”

      I know that as a former staff member, I felt this way too. As far as how the organization operates and works, what’s there to hide? Having a transparent organization would make a huge difference in so many ways.

  10. Department of Justice and FBI: Are you paying attention?

    Better late than never…

  11. This was all wonderful news today. I am predicting that the C of $ attorneys will next ask for Summary Judgement and such will be denied. Then their next step will be to word some kind of fancy make-wrong against the Court and Debbie and Wayne and with great fanfare announce such withdrawing their suit completely. I think Miscavige wants another motivator like being denied Summary Judgement, and at that point he will blow, i.e. drop the suit altogether. I’m speculating. But I think he wants out of the Courtroom fast as being in the courtroom hasn’t been very healthy for Miscavige so far. Debbie and her attorney lit his pants on fire and Marty and Mike are there ready with torches if needed. Nothing like good ethics presence. What else can Miscavige do now except run and hope his burning ass feels better later?

  12. Don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out, Davey boy.

    And now, I dedicate this song to my former “leader” David Miscavige…

  13. I love the Judge. She was awesome. The judge let her speak and that is when the light was shown in the dark corners.
    And props to Mat Pesch, Pat and Scott Campbell for noticing that Debbie looks exhausted and needs some TLC. It’s not easy waking up and even harder with 2 ton gorilla on your back.

    • She’s a great judge. The thing is, any judge they get for this case will allow this evidence to be presented. COB can’t get around it. Heee.

  14. Below is the text of Debbie’s letter to Kathy True on Jan 15 which Margaret posted above (the link is not working for some). When I first read it, I thought “Go Debbie! Tell it like it is!” But having re-read it, I must ask this: Debbie, why are you willing to cover up for DM instead of flat out fully exposing him? Because it’s bad PR? You actually sound naive about “Church” practices. You don’t realize that the “Church” is Dead.

    ———————–

    From: Debbie Baumgarten
    To: Kathy True
    Sent: Sunday, January 1 5, 2012 3:24 PM
    Subject: comm to OSA

    To: Ben Shaw, OSA Int, RTC

    My letter to Scientologist friends was sent out to thousands of additional people by someone else. I am also certain at this point that it was Marty and the Independents that worked so hard to get that comm into the press. I have steadfastly refused to talk to the press despite non-stop phone calls and reporters showing up at my work. And I wrote that letter to Tampa Bay Times to try and diffuse the situation.

    So think about it, is that really the work of someone dedicated to harming
    the Church?

    Think about what I could have done if my actual intentions were to cause real damage. I would have been granting interviews to those reporters flat out. And think about the things I could have told them. I could have told them all about the “hole” with bars on the windows and 24/7 security, not to mention the unbelievably disgusting, inhumane and squirrel things done within that confinement. There were over 100 people in “the hole” when I was there. The entirety of WDC, CMOI and Exec Strata along with numerous Gold execs. It was a true horror story and could cause serious PR ramifications if the truth was known about this without the slightest embellishment.

    Or I could talk about the beatings that I personally witnessed, including watching DM punch and wrestle Yager to the ground. I remember DM having Bob Keenen in UK march Guillaume, Heber, Yager out to the freezing water in the lake at St Hill and making them go in. Then there’s the demented name tags he gave people, the pie faces he made top execs wear, the caps with denigrating labels, the darth vader helmet and many other things used to haze and denigrate SO executives. Or I could bring up Mark Ginge Nelson being made to lick the bathroom floor clean at ASI because he dared to say he disagreed with beating other execs or that there is no policy covering “the hole”. These were his “huge crimes” for which he was physically beaten, I could go on and on, but hopefully you get the point by now. There is plenty I could have exposed if I was out to damage the Church. I am not.

    However I see you are up to plenty of under-handed tactics with your lies and black PR. Handing out “Debbie Cook dead agent packs” to the field, having all your little OSA spies passing around messages listing ”the suppressive acts Debbie committed”, telling people I am starting a splinter group or that I connected to known declared SPs. That I am an “apostate”, defector”, etc, Or that my SP declare is on lines and coming down tomorrow or any of the other things I am hearing from Scientologists and the press, Maybe you are declaring me suppressive. That would be a really dumb move for you. But if so, then I would at least expect it to be laid out properly in an issue so I can be shown it and others can see it in writing. Do you remember the policy that “if it isn’t written it isn’t true”? Or how about PR Series I – “Never tell lies”. And these pathetic DA attempts in the press are making matters worse PR-wise as they have been grossly overused and misused.

    Our clients were contacted and told to disconnect. Now to make matters worse, our families are being messed with. Meanwhile no one has said one word to us. Do you really want to alienate me completely? I put out a simple message to not support anything not covered in tech or policy by L. Ron Hubbard and to go up the Bridge. How is that so horrible and despicable? Oh, I forgot, I dared to challenge DM. My OL is L Ron Hubbard. Why is it DM can’t come up with one LRH reference to support having to donate yourself into a hole to support the IAS or pay for opulent buildings for every org? Well? Could it be that LRH never directed this? Maybe someone in OSA should look up the SEF advices to see that LRH said about getting Scientologists to donate to things like this. Or how about the BIC advices and what LRH actually said about org buildings. There are some serious policy violations going on. I dared to give a few LRH references. But I am still an important part of the biggest cover up in Scientology history. And for that, I expect a certain quid pro quo. If you expect me to help you cover up actual crimes committed at the Int Base, then I expect that you keep your shit together and not fly off the handle with bizarre lies or manipulations of my family, clients and comm lines because I pointed out a few policy violations. So do it. Get your shit together, collect up all the “DA” pacts, cease with the “disconnection” program, leave my family alone and drop it. You expect me to “drop it”. DM ordered one of his staff to smack me to the floor while he watched and another one to break my finger and ordered me to be tortured in the hole for weeks, and I am expected to “drop it”. Well I complained about a couple of policy violations and I expect you to “drop it” as well. Get a grip people. There is much worse out there than Debbie Cook complaining about over-regging. I am helping you cover up some things that were seriously off the rails and could be very damaging PR-wise. I would at least expect you to not antagonize me further with your bullshit.
    – Debbie

    • Obnosis, you beat me to it! I also just posted it below.

      My guess is that Debbie, over the last few weeks, has been coming to terms with the fact that trying to do an internal reform is impossible, when dealing with the insanity of Miscavige. I know it’s the same process that I went through, and probably the same process that most Independents went through. Also, like most of us, Debbie also hoped to avoid dragging the reputation of Scientology through the mud more than has already been done as a result of Miscavige’s reign of terror. But she’s realizing that that too is futile.

      To me, it punctuates the reality of how much damage Miscavige has done to Scientology over the years, and how important it is that Miscavige be removed from power.

      • Margaret,

        There is another letter from Debbie to OSA/RTC. It is exhibit C. Can you find and post it ? It was original posted on Tampa Bay Times site and migrated to Village Voice, but I cannot find it now. Important comm from Debbie to the Church.

        • Wow, Karen, I hadn’t seen that one. But I just found it! It’s at:

          http://www.tampabay.com/specials/2012/PDFs/scientology021011/b_scientology020912.pdf

          … and it predates.the other one and gives great background on what went down internally. It was sent by Debbie to OSA right after she sent the original email on January 1. This is very fascinating. Here is the text of the FIRST letter from Debbie Cook to OSA:

          ——————-

          EXHIBIT “A”

          —- Forwarded Message —-
          From: Debbie Baumgarten [email address smudged out]
          To: Kathy True [email address smudged out]
          Sent: Sunday, January 1, 2012 7:20 AM
          Subject: recent email

          OSA Flag, OSA Int and RTC,
          By now you have likely seen the email that I have sent out to my Scientologist friends. I am unwilling at this point to continue to lie or put up a façade that I support COB RTC and his violence and off-policy and out-tech actions.
          At the same time, I want you to think about the fact that I know and have seen far, far more than I covered in my email. My intent is to affect a change for the good of Scientology. I know you think otherwise, because I dare to say anything bad about the Church or DM. But with the way things are now, there is no way to write a KR on DM and have something done about it. It just won’t happen. However I can’t just do nothing either. I have nothing to benefit personally from this. Quite the contrary.
          I also want to make sure that you think about how fervently the press has been after my stories, which I have refused to date to get involved in. Apparently Tobin and Childs are very interested to speak to me, as it would support statements from Rinder and allow a whole new round of anti-DM articles to hit the presses. I have been approached by Tobin, Childs, Wright and a host of others. I have granted interviews or information to none.
          After having been frankly imprisoned and tortured at the Int Base it is very tempting to unleash. Suppressive “ethics” makes people bitter and ill.
          However this will not happen unless you yourselves force it.
          Please do not employ tactics such as heavy black PR about me, including the suppressive act of using embellished information about me from my PC or ethics folders – you know that is a crime. Please don’t force our families to disconnect or try to undermine our business. Please don’t have people on my front yard or any other “fair game” tactics.
          Right now, I have made a statement. There is nothing else planned. I am not joining any movement. I am not starting any movement. I will be working to earn a living and continuing my medical program. If you want a war all you have to do is to bring it on.
          Your call.
          Debbie Cook

          ————————-

  15. Reading Debbie’s Fax to OSA Int., I think I understand why David Miscavige took her to court. He counted on her still not saying anything, that could damage the church. He figured, she’d rather loose, than do that. That’s what he has observed for 30 years: people protecting LRH and his legacy no matter what. He’s whole « power » depends on that and nothing else.
    I remember being threatened to be sued by the Church many years ago. My main concern at the time was to make them not look as dumb as they and the whole thing was, in court.
    On top of the little rant figured, if he doesn’t stop Debbie, there will be others.
    There will be.

    • Under Radar
      I agree, this are the two main assumptions DM had that caused him to risk suing Debbie:

      1) “He counted on her still not saying anything, that could damage the church. ”
      and
      2) “the little rant (rat) figured, if he doesn’t stop Debbie, there will be others.”

  16. Dear Debbie, Thank You, you have taken an awesome stand. I have no doubt you are forever In Good Standing with LRH!

    Carry on, and Thanks again!

  17. Debbie’s attorney makes a good point; that if the set of facts were presented to a jury, they would find in her favour.

    So it isn’t a legal issue, it’s a PR issue.

    What is so bizarre is that this has been obvious to most, except the claimants leading to the conclusion that either the case has proceeded on poor legal advice, OR despite very good legal advice and ignored. The other possibility being lack of disclosure by claimant to counsel.

    And now that the case has been reported in local media, the next move is oh so predictable. The church will either ask for the case to be moved to another jurisdiction, or the case will be dropped citing inability to get a fair trial.

  18. Marty, the snowball thrown by yourself and some others before you has become an avalanche – one that will bury David Miscavige forever. I am hoping for a class action lawsuit against this criminal and his minions: I cannot wait to see them put away! We are appalled by the crimes and atrocities against humanity committed by the Taliban, Sudan leaders, or Gaddafi; however, similar physical and psychological abuses are taking place in our own backyard, just a couple of miles away. I have done my part of informing my former Scientology friends over and over about Miscavige and his traits. At this point, I count in anyone who does not openly stand up and raises a voice as commonly guilty as Miscavige! I lost my share of loved ones by doing so but I believe it is the right thing to stand up for what you believe in…Much better in the long run…

  19. Glad I’m not at Int today.

  20. As PCs and pre-OTs, all of our secrets are written down in PC folders. We have no secrets. It is perfectly reasonably to demand that our organizations have no secrets.

  21. For those that couldn’t open Debbie’s letter to OSA from Jan. 15, 2012 found at: http://www.tampabay.com/specials/2012/PDFs/scientology021011/c_scientology020912.pdf, below is the text from it. This was entered into the court case as evidence, I believe from Debbie’s team, but not sure. It was mentioned (and linked to) in one of the Village Voice articles:

    ————————
    EXHIBIT “B”

    From: Debbie Baumgarten [email address smudged out]
    To: Kathy True [email address smudged out]
    Sent: Sunday, January 15, 2012 3:24 PM
    Subject: comm to OSA

    To: Ben Shaw, OSA Int, RTC
    My letter to Scientologists friends was sent out to thousands of additional people by someone else. I am also certain at this point that it was Marty and the Independents that worked so hard to get that comm into the press. I have steadfastly refused to talk to the press despite non-stop phone calls and reporters showing up at my work. And I wrote that letter to Tampa Bay Times to try and diffuse the situation.
    So think about it, is that really the work of someone dedicated to harming the Church?
    Think about what I could have done if my actual intentions were to cause real damage. I would have been granting interviews to those reporters flat out. And think about the things that I could have told them. I could have told them all about the “hole” with bars on the windows and 24/7 security, not to mention the unbelievably disgusting, inhumane and squirrel things done within that confinement. There were over 100 people in “the hole” when I was there. The entirety of WDC, CMOI and Exec Strata along with numerous Gold execs. It was a true horror story and could cause serious PR ramifications if the truth was known about this without the slightest embellishment.
    Or I could talk about the beatings that I personally witnessed, including watching DM punch and wrestle Yager to the ground. I remember DM having Bob Keenan in UK march Guillaume, Heber, Yager out to the freezing water in the lake at St Hill and making them go in. Then there’s the demented name tags he gave people, the pie faces he made top execs wear, the caps with denigrating labels, the darth vader helmet and many other things used to haze and denigrate SO executives. Or I could bring up Mark Ginge Nelson being made to lick the bathroom floor clean at ASI because he dared to say he disagreed with beating other execs or that there is no policy covering “the hole”. There were his “huge crimes” for which he was physically beaten. I could go on and on, but hopefully you get the point by now. There is plenty I could have exposed if I was out to damage the Church. I am not.

    However I see you are up to plenty of under-handed tactics with your lies and black PR. Handing out “Debbie Cook dead agent packs” to the field, having all your little OSA spies passing around messages listing “the suppressive acts Debbie committed”, telling people I am starting a splinter group or that I connected to known declared SPs. That I am an “apostate”, “defector”, etc. Or that my SP declare is on lines and coming down tomorrow or any of the other things I am hearing from Scientologists and the press. Maybe you are declaring me suppressive. That would be a really dumb move for you. But if so, then I would at least expect it to be laid out properly in an issue so I can be shown it and others can see it in writing. Do you remember the policy that “If it isn’t written it isn’t true”? Or how about PR Series 1 – “Never tell lies”. And these pathetic DA attempts in the press are making matters worse PR-wise a they have been grossly overused and misused.

    Our clients were contacted and told to disconnect. Now to make matters worse, our families are being messed with. Meanwhile no one has said a word to us. Do you really want to alienate me completely?
    I put out a simple message to not support anything not covered in tech or policy by L. Ron Hubbard and to go up the Bridge. How is that so horrible and despicable? Oh, I forgot, I dared to challenge DM. My OL is L. Ron Hubbard. Why is it DM can’t come up with one LRH reference to support having to donate yourself into a hole to support the IAS or pay for opulent buildings for every org? Well? Could it be that LRH never directed this? Maybe someone in OSA should look up the SEF advices to see what LRH said about getting Scientologists to donate to things like this. Or how about the BIC advices and what LRH actually said about org buildings. There are some serious policy violations going on. I dared to give a few LRH references. But I am still an important part of the biggest cover up in Scientology history. And for that, I expect a certain quid pro quo. If you expect me to help you cover up actual crimes committed at the Int Base, then I expect that you keep your shit together and not fly off the handle with bizarre lies or manipulations of my family, clients and comm lines because I pointed out a few policy violations. So do it. Get your shit together, collect up the “DA” packs, cease with the “disconnection” program, leave my family alone and drop it. You expect me to “drop it”. DM ordered one of his staff to smack me to the floor while he watched and another one to break my finger and ordered me to be tortured in the hole for weeks, and I am expected to “drop it”. Well I complained about a couple of policy violations and I expect you to “drop it” as well. Get a grip people. There is much worse out there than Debbie Cook complaining about over-regging. I am helping you cover up some things that were seriously off the rails and could be very damaging PR-wise. I could at least expect you to not antagonize me further with your bullshit.

    • No. It was the Co$ team that entered the above document into evidence.

      Michael A. Hobson
      Independent Scientologist

      • Well, if the Co$ team did that, then THEY entered DM aka David Miscavige into the matter, didn’t they?

        I’m waiting for a judge to demand DM show up in court. I’m sure the court and a jury would love to hear from him. Wouldn’t that be a hoot!

        • No, Co$ has not brought David Miscavige into the case by entering that letter as evidence. They were only attempting to use it as evidence of intent to breach the “agreement” on Debbie’s part.

          *I am not a lawyer*

          Michael A. Hobson
          Independent Scientologist

      • If so, isn’t that bizarre? The Church lawyers claim that “we’re dropping our temporary injunction request because too much information has now been put out in the court record by Debbie” … but THEY THEMSELVES entered this letter into evidence, which puts it on court record? Huh?!

  22. Thanks for the latest update, Mosey. I wanna see this thing go to jury trial.

  23. False imprisonment is a restraint of a person in a bounded area without justification or consent. False imprisonment is a common-law felony and a tort. It applies to private as well as governmental detention. When it comes to public police, the proving of false imprisonment is sufficient to obtain a writ of habeas corpus.

    Just a thought.

  24. Tony Ortega mentioned in today’s article that he should have another big surprise for us Monday morning…..

  25. Here is a song I recorded about 6 months ago in my own little recording studio otherwise known as my one-bedroom apartment. I am just an amateur but I want to dedicate this song to DEBBIE COOK for her courage and dedication to the CAUSE. Sweet dreams girl, you did GOOD!

  26. Dizzy Mizz Lizzy

    I´m a public from Denmark. I must say the skeletons are rattling out of the closet now! For years I´ve felt extremely offended by constantly being asked to donate money for nothing on top of paying extreme prices for auditing. It just didn´t feel right and now I know why – because it wasn´t right as per policy. What triggered me was, when I was told not to go on the internet and read about Scientology. That´s a direct violation of the Human Rights, Scientology is fighting for. It just didn´t make sense. And where as I was blind, I could now see. And where as I was deaf, I could now hear. And where as I was dumb, I could now speak. And that´s what I´m doing right now. I realize that the best thing any Scientologist anywhere on the planet can do now is to speak up and demand that the gross out tech off policy criminal squirrel (DM) be dismantled NOW!

    • one of those who see

      Hi Dizzy Mizz Lizzy,
      Welcome to the light! So great to hear from Denmark!

      • Li'll bit of stuff

        Hey Dizzy, very,very well done on those BIG cognitions!
        At the end of the day, it all comes down to one’s levels
        of awareness. I for one, wish that I had been MORE
        aware and didn’t need some prompting from a close
        friend, to actually have a good look behind the slick,
        believable PR of Miscavige! All Scientologists still
        entrapped, need to have this awakening experience,
        in whatever form it may take! But I’ll promise you this:
        You will never be easily suckered into cult beliefs,
        ever again. The collective wisdom of LRH shines
        through so many enlightened beings who regularly
        blog on this site, that it can’t help but rub off onto the
        blogger, that is, if one is a regular visitor! But I think
        you have already realized this, for yourself!

        What you said in your post, is exactly what you will
        find here on Marty’s site and though you ( as I,)may
        find Marty to often be a man of few words, make no
        mistake, he is laser sharp and misses absolutely
        nothing!! At the same time he is a man of enormous
        compassion and this is epitomised by the way he
        lives by the Auditors Code and is able to grant real
        beingness to all, with the exception of those who
        show up here with destructive intent. Although often
        cloaked in the most convincing ( to me, anyway )
        conversational “attire” Marty’s “street wisdom” seems
        to detect the real intent from a mile off and these
        individuals (plants, OSA spies, trolls and other trouble
        makers,) usually give themselves away and get sent
        packing, very unceremoniously, too!

        That said, this is a place you will find, generally
        very warm, friendly and fun loving and I’m sure you
        will make some good real friends here and that
        makes it easier to Move On Up A Little Higher.

        Welcome to your new expanded family!

        Li’ll bit of stuff ( from an LRH ref to “duplication”)

  27. While Debbie and Wayne probably need a break, I don’t think DM will give them one.

    I doubt he’ll sue them, as he’ll then be subject to a court room appearance, perhaps.

    But, as he is brutally 1.1 and sometimes 1.5 when in a good mood, he’ll use the OSA monsters and private eyes to do his bidding at a level we’ve not yet seen. Afterall, Debbie kicked him in the nuts sharply and he can’t overtly fight back, which is probably driving him more insane than we’ve yet seen.

    So……how tough is it for Debbie to sue DM the individual???

    And……is that a good strategy???

    Seems like this cycle isn’t over by a long shot because DM is still in power and removing him is the goal…

    • Bryan
      Am I wrong, but isn’t a suit by Miscavige against Debbie already in progress? This hearing that just occurred was a motion to keep her “gagged” from now to the end of a future trial.
      If Miscavige sends his goons after Debbie and Wayne, and it can readily be shown they are coming from the “Church”(which will be evident), won’t Miscavige be in deep, deep shit? I mean even deeper in shit that he already is?
      Marty or Mike what do you think?
      Michael Fairman (from Joy’s computer)

      • Michael,

        If DM sends his goons after Debbie and Wayne, that will just be monumentally stupid of him. We’ve just been through 6 months of SquirellBusters and god only knows what else before it. And it’s now all in public records (*Texas* records I might add) with the many times the cops had to go to Marty’s house, that trumped up arrest about the spectacles, etc etc

        So if the goons show up now, a really strong case can be made for an unchanging pattern of behaviour by DM, perhaps Allender could be subpoena’ed to appear before the court. Sending in the goons might even stretch to witness tampering (I’m not sure about that, I’m not familiar with US and Texas law) but one thing I do know is that courts all over the world really do not like it when people dick around with the system – that really pisses judges off.

        Mind you, we know that David Miscavige is obsessed with reading this blog. When he reads this he’ll probably feel compelled to send in the goons anyway. Just begging for the system to take him out of the game.

      • Michael,

        You’re absolutely correct.

        I’m just speculating whether DM will drop the suit and whether Debbie should initiate her own suit against him, if that’s even possible. Tony Ortega had mentioned a “big surprise coming Monday” and so my wheels are spinning.

        I’m not knowledgeable in the legal arena and so feedback is what I’m hoping to receive and learn from here.

        Whichever way things end up going, what just occurred over these last two days is creating the most happiness I’ve felt regarding Scientology in a very long time.

        Hip hip hooray!

  28. Marty/Mosey, There are some additional after-the-hearing interviews of Debbie, Wayne and her lawyer, posted at Village Voice, that you might want list above. They are quite good. Link is at:

    http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninscared/2012/02/debbie_cook_scientology_interview.php

  29. Thankyou for your Posting Dizzy Mizz Lizzy ! Yeah loads need to know

  30. It strikes me that the CoS withdrawing the suit is not the most desirable outcome. That would leave them free to sue again for different reasons. The best thing that could happen would be for both NDAs to be declared invalid because they were signed under duress. Just my opinion.

  31. Thanks hadley! What has shocked me the most reading about Scientology on the internet is the fact that almost all of DM´s enemies are Scientologists, and he spends a lot of my donated money fighting scientologists. This I cannot accept!

  32. Thankyou Marty, Mike, Mosey and Steve Hall in particular for going being present, and Yvonne Schick too! Thankyou all!

    If there were a “Freedom Medal winner” of the week, award, for independents, Yvonne, you get my vote! thankyou for being there in particular!

    I’m not a Hubbardite, but Code of Honor, and sticking by one’s friends, thankyou for continuing to be Debbie’s friends!

    Hopefully somehow this insane chapter in Scientology history will come to a better end for those still left in the “Hole.” I would venture to say that the “Hole” will have to be razed, moved, dismantled, since otherwise media will be shooting shots of it from the Highway, to see if Scientology still practices “Hole” punishment at their “Vatican.”

  33. COB: (C)himp (O)r (B)aboon.

    You be the judge.

  34. Miscavige is being openly accused of fraud, false imprisonment and assault, and that’s just to name a few. Why don’t his victims press criminal charges against him and have him stand trial? I don’t understand. With all the witnesses, it’s hard to believe he won’t be convicted. PRESS CHARGES! Jesus! Does he have to assault the whole world before he is arrested? Jesus Christ! No one gets away with this much crap and on such a public scale. The president of the United States would be impeached for just a fraction of these crimes of assault. Look what happened to Bill Clinton for getting a BJ. I understand if DM where some wife beating husband with a doormat for a wife, but he’s been doing it to church staff and it’s been broadcast in the media for years now. What the hell is going on? It’s surreal. It’s actually defies belief.

  35. Perhaps DM’s only shot is heading toward something like a mistrial?

  36. Summary Judgement. Please enlighten me. If they ask for a ‘Summary Judgement’, which I understand means they are saying all the proof necessary to judge the case is in, can the judge say, “Okay RCS, you lose.”?

  37. Bravo and carry on Debbie !
