I have it on very good authority that David Miscavige is a seething wreck at the moment.
It seems over the past three days he has suddenly begun reckoning that in the last four months he has been taken to school, spanked hard, and sent home crying. He has not quite yet come to grips that he has lead a bunch of immature boys against men.
Well, assuming he can get a grip on himself, this will be my final word on Scientology Inc v. Debbie Cook.
Below is the accounting for funds collected for the defense of Scientology Inc vs. Debbie Cook and Wayne Baumgarten. These are all of the funds received by me through this website and by mail and all of the disbursements for purposes of the Baumgartens’ defense.
I cannot account for any funds that were sent directly to Debbie Cook. I was never given access to the total figures received by the Baumgartens, let alone the details of the donations.
I do know that when they demanded that donations be made straight to them, they posted in writing the guarantee that any funds received would be returned upon conclusion of the case. The case is concluded. I understand from at least one donor that there is indication the guarantee will be honored provided donors send their addresses to Wayne and Debbie with a request.
I was asked by a donor to Debbie’s page whether receiving such money would be to receive blood money. My answer was that I do not think that at all given the representations under which it was collected, other public representations on this blog by Debbie, and given my well educated estimation of what the defendants received. I think not to get it back would be to saddle Debbie and Wayne with an overt that would plague them further on down the road.
I think that the energy of independents should be returned to them.
I so think that that should Miscavige obstruct that in any way, fashion or form all bets are off on the third paragraph of this post.
I never made any refund representation prior to soliciting donations for the defense. I did two nights ago when more than one person expressed in blog comments disappointment with how the funds were utilized.
Since last night more than one person has offered to help me cover refunds (as you can see from the accounting virtually all funds received were spent on the Baumgartens’ defense) since I don’t have the money to do so.
I have a record of every person who made donations to the Indies defense fund through my paypal account and by check mailed to me. I do not have addresses for you. For purposes of my record keeping I need to issue checks for refunds. If you want your money back from the Indies Defense Fund I collected the initial monies from please send your name and address to me at firstname.lastname@example.org along with the amount you donated and I will issue and mail you a check from the defense fund account. Please have patience since as you can see the account is nearly empty.

A final note on Debbie Cook and the impact of her having stood up. My final reckoning is prompted by my need to move on. There are ripple effects created by Debbie’s email and court testimony that are being cultivated into waves that will make the first four months of 2012 look like child’s play.
Until then, until the end, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AEU1ys-JJ48
