Open Letter to Tom Cruise


David Miscavige Violates Tom Cruise’s Confessional

You Were Put On Notice in August 2009

Your Good Name Was Invoked in the Worst Kind Of Bullying


As the recent email cycle below between a National Enquirer ‘journalist’ and myself clearly demonstrates, you have nothing to fear from me or the independent Scientologist community.  As a matter of well-demonstrated fact, we have your back.  As the referenced posts above clearly demonstrate you have every reason to continue to distance yourself from Miscavige (any perceived ‘leadership’ abilities notwithstanding) and corporate Scientology.  In case you hadn’t noticed I share your recently expressed claim of a distaste for bullies.  You too can do something effective about the one you and I helped to empower.

Hi Marty,
Thanks for your reply.
My editor however wants you to know that The Enquirer is prepared to pay you at least $20,000 [twenty thousand]
for some of the confessional stuff you got from Tom Cruise. In addition, we would promote your new book, and a major Enquirer cover story about it would likely bring a flood of offers from publishers.At the very least, will you grant me the opportunity to come and interview you in Texas about as much as you are prepared to say about Tom Cruise – including the same information you told The Independent.I look forward to hopefully coming out to see you.

Hi Marty,
I’m a reporter for The Enquirer in New York.
I got your e-mail address from Guy Adams, a journalist with The Independent in the UK.

I sent a letter to your ‘Bayshore Court, Ingleside on the Bay’ address via FedEx yesterday, which I hope that you have received.

However, in case you didn’t get that letter, I wanted to touch base with you to let you know we’re interested in your story about your time as Inspector General for the Church of Scientology.

We are truly fascinated by your time at the helm of this organization and would like to interview you specifically about what you may know about Tom Cruise and his secrets — as you performed auditing on him.

We would like to offer you compensation for an on-the-record interview about any of Tom’s secrets, which you, and no one else knows.

If you’d like, we can also work with you if you do not want to put your name to the story but will still give us some information on Tom Cruise.

Please feel free to get in contact with me by phone or e-mail: 646.935.6048 or

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards.

  1. Holy Jose Cuervo, my “confront of sleaze” needs a little bolstering. The Enquirer is disgusting and I think it’s an insult that they offered you cash to violate your ethics and the auditors code Marty. Obviously they don’t have a clue what Scientology is really about. I sincerely hope Tom Cruise finds out who his friends really are on day.

  2. spelling error: “I sincerely hope Tom Cruise finds out who his friends really are ONE day.”….

  3. Tony Dephillips

    I also left a message at Tom’s personal website but it was moderated so I’m sure it won’t make it. But maybe the moderator will pass on to Tom what people are saying. I told Tom that I have spoken to several ex-Sea Org members who were physically attacked by David Miscaviage and that if Tom were a true Humanitarian he would look at his own church first.

  4. Excellent, Marty. Thanks for showing that some things have nothing to do with money.

  5. The same old LDW

    It all seems to boil down a simple observation. Some people do and some people do not have integrity.

    Most people tend to look up to and emulate their opinion leaders. There is a strength of beingness that some people have that just inspires the average person to want to aspire to. When I look at Mike and Marty I see two quite different people with distinct differences and similarities. The main quality they share, which is extremely inspiring to me, is their ability to observe accurately an existing scene and to evaluate the past and future based on accurate evaluations of data. Another attribute they seem to share is a tremendous ability to grant beingness and life and importance to others. Seems we can add the extremely laudable virtue of “can’t be bought” at any price.

    You just can’t buy these virtues, dave. You have to earn them. You can collect 50 billion dollars from your clapping seals and you still won’t have any joy other than the glee of insanity. You can’t beat loyalty into people, dave. Eventually they always revolt. You can’t buy loyalty, dave. Someone always has more money to purchase temporary fidelity.

    True joy comes from honestly helping others, dave. It comes from personally producing something of actual value to another being. All the bragging and false reports in the world won’t cover up the truth in the long run.

    I know that’s waaaaaay over your head, dave. I know you think it’s just big con. I know you can’t get it. But maybe some of your victims will, and they will turn on you…not for money, but to try and earn back their own personal integrity.

  6. Tom Cruise has finally opened his eyes!!!! He for sure is distancing himself from the people who have taken advantage of him for personal gain and personal fancy. Tom will become stronger because of DM’s selfish and sinister ways. He will no longer support the smoke and mirrors presented by the C of S. Now his career will blossom again bc suppression is now off his lines. Hurrayyy for Tom!!!! The hell with The Cult of Greed. Time magazine had it right in 1991!!!! Asa long as DM is in charge SCN will dwindle and fade away into the sunset just like every other dicktator did!

    • Rory — I dont think he has opened his eyes. I think the ONLY reason he seems to be careful in his utterances is that he knows to come out in overt and direct support of his thug friend cult leader is bad for business. He knows it will be picked up and he will become a laughingstock once again. I suspect even POB has advised him not to try and shill for the church on press junkets. It’s funny, 15 years ago Miscavige used to natter about Cruise NOT “disseminating” in his media appearances, calling him a dilettante and PTS. If Miscavige hadn’t turned the RCS into a human rights abusing Vulture Culture, Cruise COULD have done a lot of broad dissemination. In fact, Miscavige initiated the “Ideal Orgs” program in part because “he didnt want the public that Tom was driving in on the orgs to be repelled by the shitty premises” (he didnt notice that they are actually repelled by his squirrel tech and his world renowned abuses of people).

      • Tony Dephillips

        Perfect Mike.
        This makes total sense to me.

      • Tony Dephillips


      • Oh yes, I had many an argument with Andy Hutton about this. He was repeatedly forwarding the DM line, via OSA that “Ideal Orgs” were needed to attract a more upstat public. But even if this were true (which it patently isn’t), there are so many policies that expressly forbid this type of false “expansion” it’s not even funny. I don’t have my OEC vol 7 to hand but there are several policy letters that explicitly forbid this type of building acquisition. It’s never worked, and never will. VERY (yes OSA, VERY) recent data from London tells me that the 54 staff there WAY exceed the number of public on lines at any given time. It is a morgue. From OEC Vol 0
        “Find bigger, posher quarters to handle the flow when it rises”.
        – L. Ron Hubbard, HCOB 14 Jan 69 Issue 1 – OT Orgs
        OEC Volume 0 – Page 756

        Isn’t it ironic that an off-source side comment from Tom Cruise, who I doubt has studied much of the OEC – but is the “greatest disseminator in Scientology” to Miscavige has – inadvertently or otherwise – been more responsible for the decline of Scientology in recent years than anything else, and will ultimately lead to the total destruction of the “Church” as the Idle Morgues descend into insolvency and collapse. There’s an almost poetic justice about it.

        • Martin,
          You are quite right in pointing the finger at the ‘source’ though since Tom is NOT the ‘In charge’ of the Co$ I’d rather clubber his false data prone “Best Friend Forever” David Miscavige for ACCEPTING the False Data, ACTING on it and turning the Co$ into a Real Estate Co. We have to deal with False Data being thrown at us every day and still make the right decisions.

        • “to attract a more upstat public” Meant by “upstat” is usually “wealthy”. A wrong target.

        • Martin

          “He was repeatedly forwarding the DM line, via OSA that “Ideal Orgs” were needed to attract a more upstat public.”


          OK, now that sounds like just a business plan and not a clearing the planet plan.

          What about the worker, per Problems of Work book?

          Just get in upstat public?

          Oh, the worker gets way to happiness booklet handed out to them.

      • Li'll bit of stuff

        Another bright torch shinin’ on the “burglar”,
        Thanks for all the “tell it like it REALLY is”, Mike.

      • Tony Dephillips

        It’s like dm will do anything to make Tommy boy happy, ANYTHING. Dm is a sycophant with a crush on a famous celebrity, his hero Tom Cruise. Then he gets Tom all full of himself, which doesn’t look to be that hard to do. I think Tom Cruise is an ego maniac.

  7. Thank you Marty for your post. It gives us some hope and confidence about the true Scientology, its real values.

    Tom Cruise, I really hope that you will weak up soon, because you are a great and powerful thetan and a great and powerful artist. Independent Scientologists and sincere friends of Ron need you ! Really, Tom.

  8. “wake up” not “weak up” ! Sorry !… ;-)

  9. I’m with Doug, my confront of sleaze has just upped a whole bunch of notches.
    It had been bolstered by the OSA sites into what I figured had to be the sleaziest. I wonder who will out-sleaze the other on this one. It’s a coin toss.

    • (Who’s going to pick up the coin? Yick.) Interesting observation about confront going up. There’s so much that could be said about integrity v. money. I decided to send off some bucks to support this site – it’s not a lot, but it’s clean, and that makes a lot of difference.

  10. Michael Finley

    Marty, I would expect nothing less of you. You are definitely not “on the take” and your personal integrity in not in question for sure. Even if they had offered a cool million, you wouldn’t have budged from your personal ideals. I am proud to see that you have made clear the ‘SMUT MAG’S’ intention. The Auditor’s Code rules!


    • Assuming Michael Finley is your real name – I say Hurrah! and Welcome! Short and to the point! Well said!

    • Welcome back on the Bridge to total Freedom ! :) :) :)

    • Well said, Michael Finely!!! :)

    • Li'll bit of stuff

      Congrats Michael, the big step taken! you can
      further validate your move, by listing on Steve
      Hall’s Indie 500 list. Google him up, it’s done in
      just a few minutes. Enjoy the increase of freedom
      resulting from these fwo moves friend. VVWD!!!!.

      • Michael Finley

        I tried and he dropped me. Actually at the time I wasn’t quite ready due to other issues so he took me off with, “You had your chance.”

        • Li'll bit of stuff

          Thanks for this, Michael. So whattt! When you KNOW
          you’ve genuinely made the choice to live with integrity,
          you’ve shifted mass, and others can perceive this too.

          Li’ll bit of guts, lots’a ARC, and you just TR-3 try again!
          After all, that’s how the turtle makes progress too!
          ……………….He just sticks his neck out!


    • Richard Royce

      Thanks for your post. I adopt your statement as my own!


    • Mister Finley!

      Good to see you here old buddy! I’m glad to see you out and about.

      Yup, Marty’s the real deal. Can’t buy that cat – at any price.

    • Finley,

      Wake the fuck up is right bro. I am glad you contacted me after my announcement on March 13th 2012. We’ll talk more soon.

  11. Marty, nice job – great example of integrity!

  12. Hi Marty, we haven’t been in comm much lately. I wanted anyhow to thank you for being a man of honour. Thank you for defending the auditor code even in front of a great financial offer. Thank to the publicity you could have easily earned 100.000copies of your book sold. You held the ground. You are a great man. A big hug from a far away friend.

    • Paulo, you wouldn’t by any chance be an Italian Scientologist, with a strong interest in physics and alternative science, was on alt.religion.scientology back in the early- and mid-90s and was also friends with a well-known Scientology pianist, would you? If so, please drop me an email via my link above. We are old friends. Thanks.

  13. The total worldwide box office for Ghost Protocol was nearly $700 million (the best of all the Mission Impossible movies.) So, Mr. Cruise’s stats aren’t exactly crashing out. Maybe he’s disconnecting from any SP’s that may be on his lines.

  14. Li'll bit of stuff

    Marty, again, enormous bang for the buck here, (no pun either)
    If these celebs, can turn, then this could be momentous!
    Wouldn’t you agree it’s good to see there’s a little more maturity
    coming through on the blog these days? Tom never deserved
    any of those cheap pot-shots taken at him, just the blinkers
    removed. Nice progress on the strategically placed explosives!

    • martyrathbun09

      For the record, I don’t know what you are referring to when you imply all manner of strategic cunning – I am merely commenting on recent news. Also, I wish you’d not use the explosives analogy – they could be misconstrued. Thanks.

      • Li'll bit of stuff

        Got it on all points, Marty. I take full responsibility for
        any “heat” these brash comments may have caused!

        For your end (effect) of axiom 28, I was referring to
        a total collapse of the current tyranny of Miscavige.

        Appreciate your reply and the salient pointers.

        Have a great, relaxing weekend, with Mosey ( & th’ gang)


        • Li'll bit of stuff

          Marty, 2nd para. above, should read “total implosion”
          as better conveying the original message intended.

    • What’s up with that backhanded compliment on “maturity”?

      Tom’s condition re David Miscavige is not occassioned by “blinkers”. This is a full on blindness.

      • Li'll bit of stuff

        Smack! thwack! Okay okay, Jim! Realize this is just
        insidious, nasty stuff, this frigg’n kool-aid juice.
        It seems to dumb down a lot more than just sight!
        At least the BLIND have heightened senses in many
        other departments, and they often “sense” S.P.’s
        pretty darn sharply, don’cha think ?

        Hey man, any vids available, where I can watch
        “Drummer Extraordinaire”in action ? Pretty please?

        Thanx muzo,


  15. Tony Dephillips

    You definitely I’ll can walk the walk. You’re pretty good at talking the talk also. :-)

  16. ThetaPotata, my take is that the longer Tom Cruise keeps his distance from; Miscavige, statements in defense of Scientology, CCHR, WTH, Narconon, and anything Scientological Inc related, the quicker his PR and stats will start to e v e r s o s l o w l y recover. However, until he “disconnects” with that Radical Scientology Jackbooted valence he’s wearing he won’t ever start to really recover from his PTS’ness, if thats what you want to call it. Disconnecting from baddy SP’s is just a start for him, he’s going to have to re-examine the fundamental Axioms and Logics of the subject from the purpose they were written, not how they were twisted to justify the bad COPY of the Scientology Philosophy into a Serv Fac. Marty audited him, he would know better, but my guess is the Cruise Missile has a long way to go to get all that crap stripped off him. I for one, wish him the best and hope he gets back in session with Marty or someone else and gets all that handled someday. He’s going to need some help.

  17. Marty can and did speak for himself. He is an auditor and keeps the Auditor’s Code and the Code of Honor in. ‘enough said.

    Tom Cruise can make it without DM. He will regain abilities and zoom once he breaks that link.

    • Li'll bit of stuff

      dlingen, absolutely, he will gain something, that I believe
      has been lacking, till now. Being able to be absolutely
      true to himself, with no false pretentiousness. with the
      falsity, stripped away ( Miscavology given the heave ho)
      we will see the being, we know as Tom Cruise, REALLY
      take charge!!

      • Li'll bit of stuff

        BTW, tho’ it may require the utmost discretion, it may
        turn out that T.C. cognites on the need, for some assistance with the serious business of “decompression” in the near future! Just expressing some speculation, here, with no further inferences.

  18. Marty, You do us proud! Thank you for your standards.

    Gary (excuse me while I light my torches… :) )

  19. another open letter To tom Cruise———-

    from above open letter to tom cruise marty says-

    from an earlier post:

    comment from RJ:

    RJ | January 8, 2011 at 1:55 am | Reply
    Right on!


    Here’s what Miscavige says in his own words:

    From “The Man Behind Scientology”

    “In 1981, as Mary Sue Hubbard appealed her prison sentence, Miscavige said he and others concluded she had to go. When none of his superiors would confront the founder’s wife, Miscavige stepped forward.

    “I thought if I do something and it’s wrong or I don’t achieve this, I’ve had it. I’m toast,” he said. “But if I don’t do something, after seeing what the GO had been engaged in … I’m convinced I’m toast anyway.”

    During two heated encounters, Miscavige persuaded Mary Sue Hubbard to resign. Together they composed a letter to Scientologists confirming her decision — all without ever talking to L. Ron Hubbard.

    He saw the one-on-one meeting as the only way. “I knew if it was going to be a physical takeover we’re going to lose because they had a couple thousand staff and we (the “messengers”) had about 50. That is the amazing part about it.”

    MARY SUE HUBBARD: The founder’s wife was ousted by Miscavige from her high post in Scientology in 1981.
    Indeed, the scenario is hard to imagine in any other organizational setting. A 21-year-old employee, five years on the staff and with only a modicum of power, manages to oust the boss’s wife by arguing that is what the boss would want.

    “People keep saying, ‘How’d you get power?’ ” Miscavige said. “Nobody gives you power. I’ll tell you what power is. Power in my estimation is if people will listen to you. That’s it.”

    Today, Mary Sue Hubbard lives in California and Miscavige says the two are friends.”

    Again all lies.

    From what I understand he “convinced” to step down the same way he convinced Jane Kember to step down by forging a telex from Ron and cutting any comm line to the Ol’man about it with the help of Pat Broeker.

    There are also rumors that various threats were made to Mary Sue regarding her children and since she’d lost Quentin due to questionable circumstances that were never fully resolved by her own investigation.

    She backed down.

    The line that the “the two are (or were) friends.”

    Is complete unmitigated bull shit!

    He kept her under virtual house arrest after she resigned as ‘Controller’ and hated her so much that he has since tried to obliterate any memory of her by writing her out of Scientology history in a completely Orwellian manner.

    The only actual truth is that he seized power after the coup and continues to hold on to it despite the deleterious effect it is having on the Organization.

    If there is anyone who should step down it is Miscavige!

    As I wrote the guy is a lying sack-o-shit.


    key quote from ted koepel interview:

    ““People keep saying, ‘How’d you get power?’ ” Miscavige said. “Nobody gives you power. I’ll tell you what power is. Power in my estimation is if people will listen to you. That’s it.”


    But there is another part DM didn’t say, and that is people will listen to you AND FOLLOW MY ORDERS WITH PUNISHMENT IF THEY DO NOT.

    • Except for the fact that there was *no* “one-on-one” meeting as Darth Midget certainly lacked the confront to face Mary Sue Hubbard alone.

      According to the report of Jesse Prince, what actually happened is that DM brought about a dozen of the INT Execs with him and conducted a mental and spiritual gang-rape “Severe Reality Adjustment” until she was beaten down.

      According to Jesse’s account, the only two people present who did not actually participate in this *elder abuse* were Guilluame LeServe and Mark “Marty” Rathbun.

      That episode certainly was one of the very darkest and most evil in all of Scientology history.

      • martyrathbun09

        Jesse is quite the embellisher.

      • Believe Jesse at your own peril…

        Jess is correct in that Miscavige was not alone — Janadair Swanson and Mike Eldredge accompanied him as I recall (Mike may not have been there, it might have been Captain Morgan Starkey). It was 3 people, not a dozen.

        • martyrathbun09

          Different, later meeting – late eighties – but highly embellished.

        • Mike, I never said I believe him – just that it was so reported by him. But apparently I got the wrong incident, anyway.

          Michael A. Hobson
          Independent Scientologist

          • he said, he said, no it’s not true. Does it all matter other than the fact that something happened and something has been altered. And the fact is we public do not know coming from a religion that promotes communication is key. Exact time place form and event.

            • “Captain Bob” your comment is damned near incomprehensible. Also, I am not part of your “we” who is clueless (apparently) as to what has gone before, having invested around a couple thousand hours investigating reports form a vast array of sources.

              Michael A. Hobson
              Independent Scientologist

              PS: when you feel like properly identifying yourself and your stake in this war, I might consider putting more effort into taking your words seriously.

              • sorry Mike. I didn’t mean to step on your toes, that wasn’t my intent. I was in agreement with you although my comm came across the other way.

                Regards your PS comment. Mine if not similar to yours and others is per the next post by Max Bleiweiss: (note time frames on postings)

                As Max says———
                “At that time I had no idea how bad things actually were. It wasn’t until the Debbie Cook cycle that I found out how bad. In fact if it were not for a teaser on TV about an upcoming Debbie Cook interview I would probably still be in blinders.”

                Mike that is the “WE”, the public. I too have done much research to get stories straight regards he said, she said, he said. I just want the truth. The exact time place form and event. And it ain’t my overt or withhold nor yours.

                Stake in this war- one would be wasted time and money.

                • Captain Bob,

                  OK. I have an unfortunate tendency to “shoot from the hip”.

                  *I* was in the Sea Org for 8 1/2 years in two tours. The later tour was Aug. 1991 through Nov. 1994 at ASHO Foundation as the SHSBC Course Administrator and Technical Films I/C. I was there for Darth Midget’s Int. Command Team Mission that came down to purge PAC Base of all who remained loyal to Ron Hubbard and not Darth Midget. I spent nearly all of 1995 “on the decks” because I was one of those – until they finally offloaded me.

                  As far as I can tell, that mission was there solely to “clear the decks” of any possible obstruction (ie Sea Org members who upheld KSW) to the Golden Age of Tech mass squirreling exercise.

                  What is *my* stake? I don’t want to see the current MEST Universe prison break attempt ending in failure (like so *many* before) as Darth Midget seems to be trying to ensure.

    • Li'll bit of stuff

      Excellent review Cap’n with great emphases.

  20. Juan José López Rodríguez

    I just wanted to congratulate you for the ethical behaviour shown. I know many auditors that have disclosed PC secrets just for the gossip of it. You were given an offer many could not refuse, but your principles, were first. Congratulations, here is a man that can be trusted.

  21. one of those who see

    No thanks. I won’t ever disclose secrets confessed to me in auditing. Ever.
    Thank you for Keeping Scientology Working. Thank you for your integrity and for being here for us. You are truly on the Road To Truth.
    Tom, time to have a beer with your old Auditor.

  22. Kudos to you Marty.
    Another example of how the Independent field has more integrity and is more on-Source than anyone in the chuch.

  23. Marina e Umberto

    VWD Marty!!!
    Ron would be proud of you!!! :-D :-D :-D

  24. What I don’t understand is why Tom still shills for the church of scientology? It’s utter nonsense that if he doesn”t talk about his religion he’s being too secretive. He just said that as an excuse to talk about it and it’s true when he does he’s promoting the church of scientology not scientology because he’s known to be a member of the organisation. g

  25. Bertram Fields, Esquire, clearly knows that it is a crime, a violation of California law, to secretly record someone’s private conversation. So, Tom Cruise, undoubtedly advised of his rights by his Attorney, knows that Tom Cruise can file a criminal complaint against David Miscavige and his lieutants for secretly taping his confessional. David Miscavige, and his lieutenants, could, therefore, go to jail for what they have done.

    So, let me ‘ask’, rhetorically: Why has Tom Cruise not filed a criminal complaint, through his Attorney, against David Miscavige for the invasion of his Priest-Penitent confesisonal, the gross violation of criminal statutes and his civil right?

    Answer: Because Tom Cruise support David Miscavige’s perversion of Scientology.

    MORE TOM CRUISE O/Ws REVEALED (Enquirer eat your heart out)

    11) Purposely told DM his eyes were not blue enough in his photos, sending him on an obsessive and ruthless quest to continually make his eyes bluer and bluer, both in his photos as well as through a process of tinted contact lenses and dropping blue ink into his eyes. I was really just joking and I felt a little bad because Dave’s eyes got sore from the ink.

    12) Looked at Dave’s ass once in the locker room.

    13) Got Dave to RPF that cook who asked me for an autograph.

    14) Had one of my PIs follow Matt Lauer around and go through his trash for a couple weeks after he interviewed me.

    15) Tricked a nasty car attendant in Beverly Hills into joining the Sea Org just so I could make sure he was RPFed.

    16) Slapped my landscaper for backflashing me and broke his tooth. Turned out he really wasn’t backflashing, I was just a bit frazzled over something Dave said. I gave him a hundred bucks and asked him to not tell anyone.

    17) I made Dave blink during a staring contest and almost caved him in.

    18) I lied and told Dave I really liked that cheesy airplane hanger he had built for me.

    19) At home I make Katie walk on her knees so I would feel taller. She got a bad case of rug burn and didn’t want to wear the knee-pads so I yelled at her and made her cry.

    20) I squeezed the cans three times just right in order to simulate an F/N because I knew I was being videoed and I didn’t want anyone to see my small, fleeting F/N.


  27. Li'll bit of stuff

    Marty…. off topic here… but need to clear this up, if possible.
    Nothing “pleases” me more than making genuine friends,
    with a common purpose, and enjoying those friendships, with
    a free and light hearted open communication. I “blame” the
    original Comm.Course, for this “malady.” & my tone of. 4.0

    But trying to have such activity, on a “blog” is fraught with difficulties, not the least of which happens to be the frequent MIS-duplication & MIS -understandings, that take place on a far too frequent basis………..wouldn’t you agree?

    I note that I have “ruffled ” your feathers, on more than one
    occasion on this blog, while trying to establish your likes &
    dislikes, so as to be able to make contributions,which you
    find acceptable.

    Bluntly, it’s very easy to appreciate your obvious integrity, honour and hard work ethic, but most difficult to get to know the person behind the serious persona .( DUE to the obvious limitations of the Internet’s shortcomings, must hasten to add.)
    To overcome some of these barriers, to what / how you feel about your likes / dislikes, would you care to open up on these, just a wee bit, to broaden ARC with us who DON’T
    have the luxury of knowing you personally ?

    Just a short, candid video spilling the “beans” will go a long
    way to letting me / us know the Marty Rathbun your friends do!

    Conversely, many of us just stay in the dark! Hardly what one
    would expect from a host in TEXAS! (No frigg’n OSA rebukes
    accepted here Marty!)

    Just Kidding, but would be great, host, if you can find the time!

    Thanks, Calvin.

      • Li'll bit of stuff

        You did find the time, Mark, and I thank you, for this greatly! Though watched your N /Y ’12 video message at the time, I must confess that you truly did share a
        great deal of your beingness, right there, and I
        missed it the first time. I’m truly humbled, and hope
        you see fit to keep this”Li’ll bit” along with you in the
        reconstruction project looming ahead.

        As always, got your back, over on this front (S.Africa)
        ARC and genuine thanks, for ALL you do for us.


      • And this my friends is yet another, simple example of how remarkably important Marty (and his key crew members, factually) is/are to the continued progress of this independence movement.

        Which reminds me: it really does suck to be David Miscavige.


    • Michael Brown

      If you would like to avoid ‘ruffling feathers,’ then I can tell you the points that would make your posts read better to me. I don’t want to speak for anyone else.

      1. There are instances in this thread in which someone asks you a question – try to answer those questions, rather than apologizing or ignoring them.

      2. Use a spell/grammar checker, and perhaps a little more care (your name was spelled wrongly in one post above).

      3. Study up on the placement of commas, because you frequently put them in the wrong place.

      4. Your posts would read better if they were in standard English, rather than in the kind of colloquial style that LRH recommended be used to show a disrespectful attitude (Study Tape 4, August 6th, 1964). He gave as an example of this: “She ain’t a gonna come.”

      5. Saying “[Tom Cruise] is a good guy” is presumptuous if you don’t personally know him. Saying, “Kudos, mate, wer’e very much part of you, don’t forget that,” [sic] may be well-meaning, but it incorrectly speaks for other people, and then tells Marty not to forget your unwarranted assertion.

      6. I’ve also seen you ask people for personal information on this public blog. Let each individual be the best judge of what they’d like to post. Nudging others to share videos, baby photos or other personal details is inappropriately forward.

      • Tony Dephillips

        Hi Michael.
        I really want to give Calvin the benefit of the doubt. But there is something about his Comm that is a bit annoying.
        Calvin if you read this I really mean it as constructive criticism.
        You come across a bit arrogant and smug. I know I’m not perfect but I am willing to self inspect when needed.
        Maybe I am paranoid…but your posts do sound sort of OSA -ish. Your stuff just sounds kind of weird.
        I think Michael makes some good points. Take it as sort of a KR and take a look at your actions and see if you can tune it up a bit.
        just a suggestion.
        Oh and I always wanted to tell you that your handle” lil bit of stuff” makes me cringe it’s so corny.
        Ok…I’m done.

        • Li'll bit of stuff

          Tony, I know you’re sharp, and I can see it by your
          posts and you also have a great sense of humour.

          I joined this blog for the simple purpose of reconnection
          to scns, who have been disaffected and harmed by the
          vicious cult of Miscavology. In the 8 odd months, since
          my first visit, (I had never even used a computer before,)
          I have certainly encountered a full spectrum of types here.

          In the company of some incredibly intelligent, wise and
          outrageously funny assortments of interesting people
          it has been a most cathartic, learning experience for me.

          Back in the early sixties, I was forced to leave school with
          only a 10th grade education and find a job, to help support
          my mother, who was in poor health.I have never the less learned to live by my own wits,courage,strength and by staying sharp. My reveal on 13 May gives the details.

          I think that having an open, cheerful and positive attitude, builds ARC and optimism with others. As a former Gym
          owner, where one had to also deal with a wide variety of
          tones, I had to use a lot of intention and “force” with the
          strength coaching aspects. One has to appreciate, that
          there is no room for “Theetie Weetie” attitudes when
          dealing with serious strength athletes, and you have to
          be quite forceful and in their faces to get them to make
          their goals, especially when they’re facing some stiff

          Tony, you may wonder why I digressed here ?

          Very simple. Candidly I just have no time for people who
          have nothing better to do than find faults in others,while
          ignoring their good qualities.(assuming they have any)
          My focus in life has always been to build more strength,
          more positive attitude and associate with people who
          feel the same. It’s so much easier to live, work and play with people from 4.0 upwards on the tone scale, and I have found a pre-requisite to that…… be ABLE

          Thank you for wanting to give me your benefit of the
          doubt, Tony.


          Thanks, Calvin.

      • Li'll bit of stuff

        You are obviously VERY well educated, Michael Brown.

  28. FCDC Class of 74

    I can see the respect that flows between you and others and I can see where the Enquirer gets its smary reputation. It is great to be amongst beings of this caliber. I will work until I drop this transportation to achieve the same abilities and attributes. Thanks for standing up for right.

  29. Marty,
    Thanks for doing the usual as an auditor and for blowing it out of the water.
    The Enquirer trying to check your level of bribability may just have been a test.

  30. Marty, first, just adding to all the previous validations for you keeping the auditor’s code and code of honour. Tom should see that you really do have his back; I hope one day he does.

    On the related subject of “culling” folders, in case any one reading this is still in the Co$ and on the fence, I have to say this was one of many factors that contributed to my questioning of the organization. A friend was confiding in me some trepidation they had about having their folders culled for o/w’s, then having to sign their name to them, in order to get a certain level of processing. They justified it in their mind, saying they could “understand” why it had to be done to “protect” the Church, and went ahead and did it to get the auditing, but observing them, I began to wonder how one audits someone to greater integrity by having them give up their integrity?

    My impression was that Ron instituted this practice (unless someone has other data), but why wouldn’t signing a bond be sufficient? Even with all its difficulties in the past few decades, I can’t imagine a Catholic priest or the Vatican violating the confessional this way (unless to stop a serial killer or some actual crime that was planned), and it certainly does not make the Co$ look good. But beyond all that, why would anyone want to trust an auditor that belonged to organization that practiced culling of folders? Just some questions to ponder if you are still in doubt…

    • “My impression was that Ron instituted this practice.”

      I’m sure that is the impression Darth Midget wanted you to have, but I’ll bet you’ve never seen that in writing from Ron Hubbard nor heard him say so on any taped lecture.

      HCO PL “How to Defeat Verbal Tech Checklist” comes to mind.

      Michael A. Hobson
      Independent Scientologist

      • Well, I thought this was a practice that went back some time, at least in the Sea Org when Ron was around, whether or not he was aware. In my opinion (and this does not take away from Ron’s auditing tech), Ron did talk about “exposing their crimes” when it came to people attacking one, in order to “dead agent” them. So one has to attain knowledge of those “crimes” somehow, hence culling.

        It’s possible he learned this technique of “dead agenting” during his Naval Intelligence courses (at Princeton?), which may be fine in a shooting war or cold war with a hostile country, but it does not create good PR for a “church”. I think people are not that stupid. When an accusation is made, it may have some momentary effect to point out that the accuser “mistreated his pineapple in 1956″, but people eventually want the accusation answered with facts, not ignored. “Exposing crimes”, especially from a confessional, makes the exposer look dirty as well.

    • Only a few months ago the Church leaked P.C. folder data of mine.
      They will do it still. And I believe anyone who has P.C. folder leaked has a right to file a law suit. There is a fiduciary trust etched in stone in Church scriptures. To lure someone in with this, and then break the contract (it is a verbal, implied, and written contract, warrants a law suit and damages. If they do it again, we will find out where it can be addressed in court because I will file a law suit.

    • This is one reason why I put in PC folders “PC got off overt” or “withhold” rather than write down specifics. I especially did that later in my tenure, as it became clear the SO and Mr. Dave was interested in having me write KRs on a PC’s session withholds. In the words of the immortal L. Ron Hubbard, “we don’t CARE what the PC DID.” The overt itself is not the issue, but the PC’s charge associated with it. Ron was very clear that overts are violations of a moral code, and moral codes change from group to group, and from era to era.

      So, cull away, Dave.

      On a technical note, the entire idea of someone culling PC folders for overts that then the PC must sign as a condition of going to another level is absolutely ludicrous, is out tech, and is a violation of the whole subject of OW. It is apparent that Mr, David Miscavige does not believe Scientology works, since he keeps cleaning cleans and hitting people over the head with withholds that were gotten off AND HANDLED in session.

      • what if every auditor said that at the beginning of a session for new pc’s? Untrained pc’s. Might the pc’s feel real relief knowing they got off the o/w? And he was safe b/c the auditor does what you say above. Now that is hatting the pc. Speak away, you are safe by disclosing your secrets.

    • Thomas, that is unbelievable. The guy or gal is supposed to sign away that he committed these overts against a person or some dynamic, or a work group he worked for, and withheld the overt from persons or dynamics. And he/she is supposed to sign upon doing them to “protect” the church. Maybe it should be so the church now has your signed confession of committing some overt to use against you. And how were these O/W’s gotten anyways? From sec checks, from session beginning ruds, from personal O/W write-ups?

      So, if I stole a 100 bucks from my dad when I was a kid. And lets say I now decide to resign from the “church”. Well how can the “church” get me to shut-up. Why they have signed confessions. And if I was an OL or important person, why if I talk, they will tell dad, who I am in comm with, hey your son stole money from you…………so the “church” can control you one why or the other with these signed O/W’s.

      As Mike Hobson says- where is it WRITTEN? Where is it written in PL’s or hcob’s that the church can now do this?

      Jesus, it’s like to be safe in the church these days, you have to know everything in hcob’s and PL’s, and that includes the altered version’s……….OMG.

      And you have to be OT20 with the confront of god knows what to just say SHOW ME WHERE IT’S WRITTEN?

  32. Theo Sismanides

    Marty, thank you for the SANITY you are bringing to my world. Thank you for keeping me in connection with the world through my true philosophy keeping it intact and well protected. I also have a letter to Mr. Cruise I would like published.

    Open Letter to Tom Cruise:

    Tom, we all know you are being watched by millions of people who do not share the knowledge you now do because you had the courage and the balls to jump into Scientology when other celebs just stayed away from it.

    I am also a father and an ex SO. Declared for insisting on the application of the Translations HCOBs which were never applied. But this is not the point of this letter.

    Since we ALL share ONE and ONLY ONE thing in common, LRH’s legacy that is, I will urge you to be your own counsel as much as possible and take a LOOK.

    As you see the Indies are not here to harm Scientology but to protect it. Unfortunately Tom, if you take a closer LOOK, you will see that many good beings have been harassed by the top of Scientology, aka Management, for standing up and stating what they observed.

    I don’t think LRH ever meant that to be happening on a daily or even hourly basis.

    My religion and philosophy was not meant to harass people every minute in the back stages and then in the grand events give the impression that everything is flourising and prospering.

    We now share that responsibility with LRH. The Loyal Officers revolted against any and all tyrants. The Loyal People never feared to revolt against suppression.

    We the Indies are not just a bunch of apostates. We are Scientologists who have lost their third dynamic because that third dynamic was turned into a machine with other intentionedness than that of LRH.

    Just you Mr. Cruise alone could do more good by opening up a School of Study Tech and running it all around the world. And it could do more good to this world than even the church does because the church does NOT free beings anymore. It frees up minds to a degree but then it puts all kinds of barriers and stops to free a being.

    Just you Mr. Cruise with the help of many friends and quite some organization as from the Admin Tech could initiate such a School for all the children of the world.

    You could state that you remain a Scientologist but you take distance NOT from the Tech but from any organization that does not allow Standard Tech to flourish and prosper as given by L. Ron Hubbard.

    Just you Mr. Cruise could give a chance to this planet to get the Study Tech and introduce it to Public Schools all around the world by your initiative.

    All great men in history at a certain point had to rebel against the system if they were to move on a bit higher.

    I am a father Mr. Cruise as you are. And lately I am not even able to care for my children as easily as i did. The financial situation in Europe and around the world is being made a “big” problem when we have the tools to turn it around. LRH tech can help that, we know that.

    Think about it, if this letter of mine ever gets to you by those colleagues of your’s who may be reading this blog and who should print it and present it to you as this is meant to be judged straightly and strictly by you and nobody else not for any other reason but because you are trained in this science as left by L. Ron Hubbard and can understand the true intention and meaning of this letter better than anyone. YOUR dynamics are communicating to YOU and your comm lines should be vast open now.

    Also think that the good you can do on a global basis will keep you and many others afloat with your conscience and your responsibilities to Mankind which I am sure you are considering on a daily basis as a sane Thetan does.

    With the help of so many Celebs around the world a new School could be formed. And you distancing yourself from LABELS and NAMES could comprise ALL THOSE CELEBS under the banner of STUDY and EDUCATION.

    Mr. Cruise, Tom if you want, the Indies are here to help LRH carry on his mission. So are you. You have proven that. We have the ability to see who are our friends and allies and we are SANE enough to see that this world is mainly a 3rd Dynamic activity.

    That we now share a COMMON language and a very rich and powerful language IT IS, that researched by LRH about the phenomena of LIFE and THETA, is the Biggest Gift for Mankind.

    Our responsibilities as mothers, fathers and people of this planet are too heavy for one or even a few to carry alone. We share them NOW.

    I am thinking and talking of you daily because you happen to be an idol for a woman I met here in Greece who did not know about the tech. She starts to know little by little. BUt I see her problems with absorbing data.

    The Study Tech is THE SOLUTION and the first step. But a firm one it is. And you Mr. Cruise standing “alone” as Tom Cruise the Thetan who has something to say now to the world, not because someone told you to do so but because YOU know what it means to the world, could convince all the celebs that exist worldwide to take part in a campaign EDUCATING THE CHILDREN OF THE WORLD. That should have nothing to do with Religion Mr. Cruise. It has a lot to do with the future of our planet.

    And remember, we can be on your side not because we are “Scientologists”, it ‘s because we understand LIFE better than many because or our knowledge. So our responsibilities are huge and extend beyond names and labels.

  33. Jean-François Genest

    Θ Well done Marty! Thank you for upholding the Auditor’s Code & Code of Honor. It is amazing the obsession our civilization has with celebrities and especially their misadventures. The media glamors them to the extreme, and then seeks to bring them down to “show the world” that after all, they are “normal” human beings. People don’t realize that a lifetime or two ago, these “celebrities” were just ordinary folks like the rest of us. I am sure The Enquirer wouldn’t pay $20 K for my O/Ws [mine are worth much more!] ;-)

    EVEN MORE TOM CRUISE O/Ws! (excerped from smuggled O/W write-up)

    21) Dressed up like L. Ron Hubbard and pretended to boss Dave around. He really liked it, but it just went on too long and Dave got weird, especially after I did that part where I made like I was discovering OT III stuff.

    22) Called up The Enquirer anonymously and teased them that I had video of DM’s solo confessional sessions. They expressed genuine interest but only if it could lead to getting their hands on a Tom Cruise video they said. I kinda freaked out and hung up on them and destroyed my phone. Actually, I think it was Katie’s phone.

    23) Dave talked me into putting pillars and a podium in my Beverly Hills house so I could coach him on how to act lofty and magnanimous on stage. I told him he was doing well, but I really thought he sounded stupid, so I guess I somewhat misled him. Yeah, I lied to him, ha ha.

    24) When I was on the Letterman show I had a hard time sitting because my ass was sore from those self-flagellation techniques DM taught me. It seemed like Letterman knew something, he definitely missed my withhold. Oh well.

    25) When I was meeting with that world leader and he left his office for a minute I jumped up and down on his sofa so hard I thought it was going to break. He seemed to glance over at the footprints on it as he came back in. I felt like I had a missed withhold there. Oh well, he was voted out of office and indicted for fraud a couple of years later.


  35. Random Stranger


    26) As a prank I covertly pinched off Dave’s air hose when we were scuba diving one time. His eyes were bulging and he was thrashing around like a lunatic. I had to pull him out of the water and he coughed and cried for 30 minutes. He got really mad and stabbed my tank with his knife. I felt a little bad.

    27) Dave gave me some verbal data and when I called him out on it he went beserk and raged about how LRH gave him permission to do that. I should have written him up but I became so confused when I couldn’t figure out who to send the report to I just gave up. Anyway, Dave and I made up soon afterwards.

    28) I implied on that recruitment video that I was so dedicated I didn’t take vacations, but right after that video shoot I took Dave to Maui. So, I guess I lied, especially since I’d just returned from another vacation I’d taken with Dave. Ha ha.

    29) I blew off some world leader who wanted to meet me, I think it might have been Nelson Mandella or it could have been the Dali Lama, I can’t remember. But Dave and I sort of already had plans to go to a motorcycle race. It felt out-ethics, but Dave had been so looking forward to it.

    30) I became suspicious of Katie after Dave pointed out that thing he noticed about her, so I dressed up like a gardner and spied on her all day. Katie almost caught me a couple of times. She was probably wondering why the gardner kept glancing in her direction. I kind of ruined the shrubs and blamed it on our real gardner and then fired him to make it look authentic.


  36. Random Stranger

    31) I purposely ran over a mud puddle to spray Dave on one of our motorcycle rides. I don’t know why I did that. Dave glared at me for a second and the whole ride home I could see him looking for mud puddles.

    32) My cook accidentally fed Dave 5 extra calories and I didn’t think he’d notice but he did. I had to pretend to fire my cook. Actually, I just gave him the rest of the day off.

    33) I stole Dave’s HASI pin. He asked me if I’d seen it and I said no. I wear it at home sometimes.

    34) I gave Dave a ride in one of my fighter planes and spun him around and around until he puked all over his face. He had bragged earlier that day that I couldn’t make him nauseous. I should have stopped when he started begging me hysterically in a high pitched voice.

    35) When I finally did meet the Dali Lama and he asked me about my religion I jumped up and jabbed the air into an imaginary chest and said, “You know what? F@#% YOU!” just to let him know I was passionate about the subject. He said he had to go do some stuff and left. I might have gone out-gradient. I think I otherwise might have been able to recruit him into the Church.

  37. Marty, 10/10 for this. That demonstrates you have true integrity to decline their offer.

  38. If the Enquirer just gathered up all the public domain stories by ex-members and published them in a single jam-packed dedicated issue along with a disclaimer that the letters are not the personal opinion of the magazine, that magazine issue would probably be the biggest issue ever sold, and at virtually minimal to no cost for reporting other than scouring the internet for the letters. lol
