The Headleys

 I had the privilege of spending a couple days as a guest at Claire’s and Marc’s home not too long ago.  I got to spend some quality time with them and other friends.  I learned something that I did not know before. After talking to a number of people I learned that Claire and Marc only ever got into a confict with DM’s organization because of an RTC retaliation campaign conducted against them. Their crime?  Assisting a friend to escape from imprisonment where she received some of the worst kind of mind manipulation I have ever heard of Miscavige performing.   Once again, DM created a state of mind in others that the only way to survive his persecution and harrassment was to turn to the courts.  I generally advise people to stay away from the courts if they can avoid it; it is too costly and has uncertain results, particularly when one is up against a corporation with unlimited financial resources and run by a sociopath. 

Accordingly, I did some study on their legal case.  I saw the most patent, wall of sworn falsehoods being thrown at them by an army of well-heeled lawyers (and perjury-willing church “witnesses”). I decided to do what I could to help counter-balance the fraud RTC is attempting to pass off on the court.  The link below is a copy of the declaration I drafted and later signed in support of a critical legal issue being litigated at the moment. 

I suggest to anyone who knew Marc or Claire during their years in the church to contact them to share any facts that might be relevant to their case. They stood up alone and have sacrificed much to stay standing as long as they have.

  1. Wow, what a story. I wish them the best — and thanks for stepping up, Marty.

  2. One thing I have noticed in all the black PR campaigns run against Marty and the church’s PR rebuttals is they never really mention how much training and how much bridge DM has done? If he is such a competent well trained manager using LRH tech why not blast it out on PR lines how knowledgeable he is and why he should be where he is (what training has he done to be a top manager)? putting some reference and alluding that LRh is talking about him, just doesn’t cut it in my book. I want the chuch to go on public record about his training and auditing. So far he just looks like an incompetent buffoon and his track record shows it!

    • That is because he hasn’t attested to anything since 1991/92. For any completed course it must to be validated by the examiner and it must be attested to with a VALID completed checksheet /attesting you have completed all items on a checksheet/success story, etc at the examiner.

      • In addition to Jan’s comment:

        HCOB 16 MAR 71R WHAT IS A COURSE?

        “In Scientology a course consists of a ~checksheet~ with ~all~ the actions and material listed on it and ~all~ the materials on the checksheet available in the same order.”

        “A course must have a supervisor.”

        “If any of these points are out, it is NOT a Scientology course and it will not be successful.”

  3. I encourage all who have been the recipient of dirty tricks, “Church” retaliation, OSA “Kerstin” handlings, information of slave labor, and child slave labor, knowledge of molestation, rape within the SO that was covered up, any other crimes that were covered up to write to me confidentially

    I also encourage more mail from all those that blew from Kirby apartments and Vista Garden Apartments, Gold BASE and so on.

  4. The truth may be ugly but it’s sure got a hell of a ring to it.

    Or is that the sound of a very big whistle I hear blowing?

  5. Watching Eyes

    I read the declaration and it leaves me speechless which is not something that happens often.

    Oddly enough, my attention got stuck on the dwarf’s use of special tanning beds. The visual on that struck me as so funny. It’s just so creepy though to think of this puny, vain, little shorty HAVING to be tan. But I guess when you have no clue about anything spiritual and are being a body, it makes sense. Do they have tanning beds in prison?

    • I read a study recently that the incidence of cancer is much higher among those that used tanning beds.

    • The picture that came to my mind was how Marty and Mike looked at the wedding. That positive glow of goodness that emanated from them. It was REAL. Little Davet Miscavige has always had the forked, flicking lizard tongue, and the cold lying eyes that no amount of hairdressing or make-up will ever be able to obscure.

    • Watching Eyes LOL “Tanning beds in prison?” I think abrasions may be more the norm there, especially for one as pretty as Dave.

  6. War and Peace

    Marc Headley is the author of the Book
    “Blown for Good.”

    In the Top 10 Best Sellers in Scientology category on AMAZON.com since 2009 without a single week off from Top 10 best sellers, (Scientology category) it speaks for itself how much the public buy the book.

    Highly recommended reading. Impossible to put it down.

  8. This seems to be a week of “Congratulations~!” Honestly, this is one more…no…..4 more. ****

    Congratulations to you, Marty, for what you’ve done here (fantastic!). And again, one to your new bride, Mosey, who no doubt helped.

    Also a huge thanks to Marc and Claire for~all~ that they’ve done.
    They know—I’m right down the street almost, and I’ll help in *any* way I can.

    Lots of love to all,

  9. Wow, Marty. You weren’t kidding about mid-July. Mind blowing stuff. Very well done on this declaration. Your courage and integrity shine through.

  10. Gary Morehead aka "Jackson"

    Marty,

    Your statement of “They stood up alone and have sacrificed much to stay standing as long as they have.” is the very reason I too jumped in to help them in anyway I could/can. These two are precious friends of mine and as any precious friend of mine knows or will discover, I will give the shirt off my back to help right the wrongs they and we were so dutifully led into believing. It is because of their beauty, warmth and strength that I shed bucket loads of tears of happiness! Is is through Marc’s and Claire’s dedicated strength that the path for righting the wrongs has been firmly laid for others to recognize is possible in correcting and firmly follow.

    Thank you Marc and Thank you Claire. Marty I thank you too but that is a given….

    By the way, message to Dave, who I know is reading this and has been eagerly waiting more so than the rest of us for Marty’s latest new post after a well deserved week off, the Enturbulation Train is a come’n dude — make sure you have a firm grip on your ground cable instead of Lou’s ass you good for nothing tanning bed munchkin. We know were not in Kansas any more, the house is falling fast and the Enturbulation Train’s engines are roaring strong heading your way. Your gonna wish you stopped beating staff long ago when your are slumped over the stainless table in Cell Block 6 with Bubba and Friends lined up behind you ready to deliver thier “Welcome Hug” on our behalf! Where is Heber Jentzch and where the hell is your wife, Shelly Miscavige? Call me with info so I can help them please. You have my numbers. — Jackson

    • Jackson, your description of the “Enturbulation Train” says it all.

      There is no cable big enough to dissipate the charge from the crimes of the C Of M.

    • Jackson
      Ain’t messing with you! You make any sudden I throw out look positively angelic😀

    • Jackson-

      Regards Cell Block 6:

      Hugs and Kisses FrankenDavey,

      ΘTater (one of your “villagers”)

  11. The specifics are incredible. Is this a piece of what of what you’ve been alluding to, or not even close?

  12. Freedom Fighter

    Thanks for sharing your declaration, Marty, and thank you for speaking up.

  13. Your humble servant

    Marty, that is a very fine and comprehensive declaration. It is fantastically gripping to read, and, without knowing anything about the case, I very much doubt the court would be inclined to grant summary judgment, simply because the court will want to know more about all of the triable issues of fact that your declaration has undoubtedly highlighted.

    Thanks for all of your dedication and hard work!

  14. Thank you for the post, and thank you for helping the Headleys through this ordeal.

    What DM and RTC are doing is totally atrocious and rotten.

    Sometimes, it is well worth it to put into practice LRH’s essay: Ethics, The Design Of
    (HCO PL 7 December 1969)

    Keep up the good work Marty.

    → Claire and Marc: Though I’ve never met you, you have my complete, Θ support.

  15. It’s an excellent declaration, Marty, and will be a real help. Like you, I spent a little time recently with Claire and Marc and they are beautiful people who have taken a brave step by seeking legal recourse. Thanks for helping them out.

  16. Marty, My Gawd this is the most detailed, informative, truthful, absolutely stunning depo I have ever read. Thank you.

    You have my unconditional support. Claire and Mark you are in the best of hands! I know this will come out okay for you. I am proud to stand by your side.

    Love Carol

  17. TheEmperorIsNaked

    Marty,
    I appreciate the courage it takes to do something like this. It would be the easiest thing in the world to back away from something like this. You are doing a lot already and you could easily talk yourself out of avoiding this one. But you don’t. That says a lot about you.

    I am expecting this whole thing to work out well for all three of you. Then I expect Marc to write the sequel to BFG including your heroic efforts to help. It probably won’t top the first one with the heart-stopping ending – but I still look forward to reading it.

  18. dear marty: WELL DONE YOU!

  19. You were quite right when you said that things were going to get ugly this summer.

    It is hard to see how any honorable person can support the Church of Miscavige.

    As the criminality of church management becomes more widely known, there will be a tipping point where the church becomes more than an embarrassment for staff and public. It will become an active liability in any future career.

    Thanks for the inside information on CST. It confirms everything I was able to find on the Internet.

    You are definitely making up for your past involvement. That takes a lot of courage and we are behind you all the way. Let us know how else we can help.

  20. As a 20-year member and survivor of the Hemet slave labor camp, I can attest to having personally witnessed a great majority of what is covered in this declaration.

    Amy Scobee

  21. Marty,
    I 100% believe and applaud your effort to set the record straight and tell the truth. I don’t know if I’m being the same naive person that thought LRH could do no wrong and had set up the administrative lines of Scientology to last for eternity – I don’t know if I believe or I want to believe – but I do believe that you did everything you did for what you thought was a just cause and I do believe that same thing goes for Guillaume Lesevre, Marc Yager, Kurt Weiland etc. Man, is it a weird world we’re living in. But anyway, I believe in mankind because there are people like you and Mosey and Mike (Rinder) and Christie, who are genuinely good people – and most people you encounter are that way. Bless you all. May the Almighty who has the power reward you with blessed lives (thank God, it seems that way already this lifetime) now and forever.

  22. Falsified “board minutes” were also created by OSA at Flag. I was the Treas Sec FSO for 7 years.
    Part of keeping the tax exemption included providing board minutes as proof that a board did exist and meet. Every year OSA created “board minutes” for meetings that never occured. These created “board minutes” needed to be signed by the board members. Either myself or one of my staff would tab the various places where a board member would be required to sign.
    We would meet with the board member and turn the pages to each tab as the signatures were done.
    The board members never even read the OSA created minutes. They signed where they were told to sign and that was the end of it. Every year
    a number of big blue binders of “board minutes” were created as above.

    • Dear Mat,
      I think it would be of value to attest to your above in the form of a valid affidavit which would be useful in any legal battle that is testing the non profit status of the so called church. For that matter anyone else that has first hand data refuting the party line could do the same. These documents are what courts use for arguing cases and the Church has generated many (perjured) affidavits to support their position on many legal points. A copy of these documents could also be given to one person or central location most likely Marty to coordinate them.

    • +1 on the suggestion of an affidavit.

      This is not the sexy issue in this case, but it’s the most likely to bring down DM. Courts will roll their eyes, whether they should or not, about the details of Sea Org and Gold Base life, and will potentially just consider it internecine religous warfare that they don’t want to get involved it. However, courts get real interested in things like falsified board records, particularly when tax revenue is at stake.

      • “courts get real interested in things like falsified board records, particularly when tax revenue is at stake.”
        Brian, I agree with that statement wholeheartedly. I know that big time drug dealers are often brought down through the IRS in many cases.
        Marty, when you said you were “back in the saddle again”, I didn’t realize that it was going to get real western in a hurry. Yikes!
        You’ve got a whole posse of OT’s that have your back. Now there’s an interesting mental image picture!

      • Remember dear old AL!

      • Capone a big time gangster who was brought down by the IRS for financial irregularities when he had a crew of top lawyers hiding all the dead bodies.

        This is for all you young whipper snappers who don’t have this in your memory bank!

  23. theystolemychurch

    Well, what can I say. One 22 page declaration and you have exposed soooooo much AND pierced several corporate veils…. need I say more?

    Looks like the deal with the IRS is just about to end…. and if you read the “deal” and can understand it, the little dwarf has violated it too much to “come back to Jesus” to get it to be upheld….

    Please let us know anything you need to get the show on the road!

    Also, looking for an auditor for my kiddo that was left incomplete on HRD so he can complete that and get onto what he really wants from his auditing.

    We will have lots of cash from our refund!

    Love to you and keep up the awesome good work…. we want to help!~!!!!!

      • DFB aka Dfb99

        Hi John. At my org, something seems to be wrong with the HRD. Every one I’ve known of who did it there seems BI’s afterwards and it takes too long IMO. Could this be due to metering (FN’s and instant reads) or was the rundown altered or something?

        • martyrathbun09

          DFB, I completed an HRD on a pc who was kicked off the Flag Land Base mid HRD after being incessently harrassed about some unwritten morality. My opinion, which is based upon some real – relatively current – experience, is that they are beginning to run REVERSE Scientology at every level. HRD is sabotaged because it – like FPRD – is being used to make people GUILTY of their overts (Real and perceived). And, as clearly stated by LRH in the State of Man lecture series, it is the continuous commission of the greatest overt one can commit (making others guilty of their confessed overts).

      • DFB,

        I agree with what Marty said, and I would add that it was DM who inserted HRD onto the Grade Chart, not LRH. Instead of using HRD when it was needed on the case, and when it would parallel the mind (ie. what the person had attention on and wanted to handle in his auditing), it’s a cookie-cutter program step for all people trying to move up the Bridge.
        The last person I cleaned up on HRD the main upset was “unnecessary action.”

      • DFB aka Dfb99

        Thanks Marty and John.

        I’ve always felt it belonged as a side action and not on the bridge. It felt like an added action that is a barrier between the first steps and grades for a lot of people. It makes more sense now.

    • I did the HRD auditors course back when it had its own course room on the 10th floor in the FH. Exchange rates are good for visitors to Austria at the moment🙂

    • Sorry, what does H R D stand for please?

  24. Mary McConnell

    Yes, Marty, thanks for stepping up and providing the facts to the court.🙂

  25. Marty thank you for allowing us to enjoy your declaration in full. It does clarify a lot of what has transpired. I love it that DM has foot shot himself again as shown in your declaration.

    I am impressed with your truthfulness in spite of the danger to yourself. You have truly struck a blow for the group that you have joined against the group that you have left.

    I truly offer all the help that I can deliver to the cause with no reservation.

    I pity DM as it is obvious that he will be spending time in a federal detention facility (much to good for him) as he won’t be able to stand it.

    When he is done with that do you think he will be able to get a job? Like drive a cab? Or will TC take him in?

    Love the URR let us know how to help.

    Stevie D

  26. Quite a read. Well done, Marty.

    How the psycho tries to hide his crimes always taking advantage of those more dedicated to their original goals of helping others.

    For those of you out there: put a link to this post on any and all sites that you can. Forward to all public officials in any capacity that are sworn to uphold, preserve and enforce the laws of the land.

    There is nothing more disgusting than a CRIMINAL posing as a RELIGIOUS LEADER dedicated to freeing man from slavery and suppression while delivering the deepest slavery and suppression imaginable.

    This is DAVID MISGAVIGE’S normal operating basis and he LOVES to degrade, hurt, harm, cause pain, cause insanity, cause DEATH to others. This is his game. If you missed it, it makes him happy.

    TC…review your pts-sp materials…your best friend is way deep into the bowls of hell.

  27. Marty,

    Quite a declaration. I’m proud of you for taking this action and am sure you’ve been a great help to the Headley case in doing so.

    Sherry

  28. Marty, well done on this very complete and well-written declaration. Your words and your experiences are compelling. Every new revelation brings us closer to the tipping point.

  29. Marty, your declaration is an enormous contribution. Your declaration also serves to explain why DM published a 95 page issue of Freedom Rag attacking you, Mike, Anderson Cooper, Amy, Tom, and the others.

    DM has painted himself into a corner. Justice will be done — and I mean legal and spiritual justice. DM belongs in prison so far as I am concerned.

    /////

    • Marty, Marc & Claire,

      Sorry in advance if this is a bit long, bit…I was in tears reading the affidavit this morning…so much damage and harm done to people both Scientologists and non-Scientologists, and the false imprisonment of private USA Citizens…Scientologists or not…makes no difference…he has no right nor autority to punish nor imprison people, or to *capture them*(arrest), restrain them, deprive them of their basic human rights and necessities, deny them communication with their family and fellows, deem them a *criminal* and ‘diagnose’ their mentality…label them, shun them…make them sleep on the floor,crawl on their knees, salute a dog, degrade them, physically assault them…force them into hard labor…for any amount of time…let alone months or years of their lives!!!. And this is done because he *perceives*some slight, or thinks the person is bad? What!!!!??? It is SO sick…and illegal. Who appointed this *person* the Judge & Jury…and Dictator over others, it is absolutely freaky! …And there are far too many witnesses for it to be covered up anymore.

      I too saw the *Freedom Mag* articles mentioned by J. Swift above my post…and these articles were of such falsehoods and vitriole I became sick to my stomach reading such utter trash & lies

      …but later I thought, hmmm well good! Here you have in writing the very evidence necessary for a good case to add against DM & his OSAbots for extreme slander and incredibly libelous smearing attempts of the reputations of good people…and it is another example of what a Psychopath ALWAYS resorts to when he is on the verge of being found out…for all HIS crimes….he starts a smear campaign about those who tell the truth…If you haven’t read the articles…I have never seen such ridiculous and obvious attempts to smear people in my life…not even a trashy gossip *rag* has ever gone this far…actually I think too many of them have been taken to court and lost millions due to the slanderous/libelous things they have printed about someone to sully their reputations…that have proven to be completely false trash…and they learned their lesson…

      Before this, I had always enjoyed reading the articles in Freedom Magazine and keep them in my bookcase…but now after these trashy articles & their resorting to print utter lies and such complete trash…they have lost credibility and made themselves look very bad…NOT the people they targeted…but THEMSELVES!

      It is a total turnoff to read such obvious lies and entheta about other people…I am sure it is not believed or well recieved by the readers of Freedom Magazine, contrary to the effect they hoped it would have…both for Scientologists and Non-Scientologists who read it.

      I have a friend who is a non-Scientologist and a Doctor who always subscribed to the Freedom Magazine as reading material for his patients in the waiting room of his office. After the publishing of this issue…he is cancelling his subscription…and his comments were that he was so utterly disgusted by the articles written…and could see through their attempts to smear the people the articles were about. He said he found it *trashy, vile, boring and actually SICK* and it made him wonder what DM and the present CofS is hiding…and he did not want to promote such a weird *unhealthy* publication to his patients…or anyone anymore! He used to like Scientologists and was always interested in the good works and things they wrote about…but now he has serious doubts about the very sanity of people who write and publish this kind of trash!…Just another example of how the CofS, under it’s current directorship…is making people actually turn away from Scientology…and not think very well of them.

      Really embarrased & sad about all this!

      Another thought, upon reading such snivel and utter trash in the articles in the Freedom Mag. about Marty, Mike, Amy, Steve and others…Well, thank you to DM and his minions, because here you have right before you another example that the *Fair Game* policy is still in effect…as such articles demonstrate to the readers this: 1. that the person writing them and the people publishing these articles are so full of such hate & ill intent and the articles are obviously manufactured with the goal to destroy someone the perpetrator is afraid & paranoid of and thinks is an enemy…most of all is afraid of exposure themselves. What CHURCH in all the world does this kind of stuff?????? In attempting to damage the reputations of others with falsehoods and lies…these people destroy themselves instead.

      Just makes me sad to read and actually see how low such people who are supposed to be *ethical* and good people…will resort to destroy the lives of others who get in the way of their personal *special* agenda!

      Locate and read LRH’s messages and writings about 1.1’s…they are VERY hard to spot until often too late…when you are clear on what a 1.1 IS and DOES…you can then spot the REAL SP…

      It isn’t too late to save Scientology.

      Wishing Marty, Marc, Claire and everyone much courage and strength. You don’t need an asbestos suit…Your Integrity is your armor, Love for LRH, real Scientology, everyone and all humanity is your shield…and TRUTH is your sword! All for one and one for ALL! Forward march!!!

      The Force be with YOU!

      Love,
      MissBridgett

      • Miss Bridgett,
        Thank you for voicing exactly how I felt reading the Freedom Mag issue. One point you left out that should be mentioned is that any Scientologist worth his salt thinks with the Data Series. The most GLARING OUTPOINT THAT EMBODIES WHAT WAS WRITTEN IS THAT IF EVERYTHING WAS TRUE ABOUT THESE INDIVIDUALS, HOW COULD IT TAKE 10, 20 AND 30 YEARS FOR THE PERSON WHO BEING AT THE TOP OF THE ORGANIZATION AND WHO SHOULD EMBODY LRH’S INTENTIONS, TO DISCOVER THEIR CHARACTER AND WHY WOULD HE HAVE PUT THEM ON SUCH HIGH AND IMPORTANT POSTS SUCH AS MARTY BEING SECOND IN COMMAND. If the leader were genuinely of good will none of the SP characteristics could have been demonstrated in those named in the article.

        If I were the supervisor of the Data Analysis course I would require the reading and analysis of the Freedom Mag issue as a practical on the course. When one is blinded one cannot see the intelligence of others.

      • Miss Bridget
        Well done on confronting the Freedom Magazine. I saw the cover and felt sick to my stomach just looking at that. However the last Freedom Mag was completely effective in catapulting me straight out of the church and directly to the St Pete Times then onto this blog. So gotta love it for that 😀
        And yes Gandiguy, I too have often thought that the magazine is perfect for the final drill on the Data Series Evaluator Course.

      • Gandiguy:

        The very point you bring up about why did it take10,20, 30+ years to find out that these individuals were so insane and suppressive is the very item that current active parishioners are asking themselves. I have several friends including OT’8 who are currently in the church and they are asking this very question. None of them care to read the blogs and non-church internet sites, but a read through all the freedom mags in the last 12 months has got them questioning the sanity of the church and who the hell is running the show?

        The secondary thing I keep hearing amongst all of my friends who currently are active, is where is David Miscaviage and why is he not on some big world wide PR campaign, mingling with the local members and showing support for the local orgs. Sitting in hemet and hiding behind the iron curtain is not making any PR sense to the masses. If Dm wants to let the church members know he is actively managing the church and is doing something about all of its troubles, get out and communicate. What kind of a leader hides at the top and it unreachable to the general public?

      • Miss Bridgett,

        You voiced the thoughts of many.
        It was precisely the venom on Marty and Mike and David Mayo on the hate site that marked a turning point for me and made me join them. Think about that.
        Their hate sites made me make a final decision to walk out and call them.

        You see it, it is only “within the beltway”.
        “Only with the Beltway” is Washington DC slang meaning no one gives a shit about Washington DC rumors, rah rah and so on. Washington DC has an inflated button on their importance but the rest of the nation could care less. (no matter how big a deal it is within the beltway of Washington DC)

        As with FREEDOM magazine and what DM calls Anderson Cooper. Most of the population could give diddly squat on what DM says of Anderson Cooper but it sure makes more Media enemies and CNN could subsequently do a whole new show on this Cult-type vindictiveness, hate site on Anderson Cooper and so on….

      • DFB aka Dfb99

        That Freedom Mag was just silly. It doesnt even make any sense. If you try to follow the plot it’s all full of holes.

        I mean, c’mon, really….
        Marty is “stripped of all authority”, then he is blamed for not handling some high level management resonsibililty. Then he is removed from power, then he screws up more high level management responsibilites. I mean, whats going on here?

        If it wasnt a complete waste of time I would say somebody plot out the time line of this because it’s doesnt work the way it’s written. It needs a rewrite. Send it back to Dan. He needs to do a story board on it or something.

      • Lucy,
        One very large shock to me was what happened to the SO 1 line after LRH passed on. I really thought whoever took over the reins should continue that. But here is yet another gigantic OUTPOINT “When doing a power change you don’t disconnect”! So here is the topmost Scientologist moving into the shoes of a Power Condition Post and he takes a broom and sweeps clean much of the established power. First the SO1 line, then the actual posts and personnel, then key tech like LRH definitions of FNs, then LRH policy on introducing a major action in the middle of a major action (OT7 and sec checks). On and on. THERE HAS BEEN A SHERMAN TANK IN OUR LIVING ROOM DUHHHH!

  30. Thank you Marty.

    Thank you.

    C

  31. You know, after reading that declaration of Marty’s, I can only wonder that someday when Mestsavage hits the wrong staff member, that staff member will turn around and literally BITE MESTSAVAGE’S NOSE OFF.

    I remember being taught in self defense class that one thing that will make an attacker cease his attack is his sensation of pain greater than what he is inflicting on you.

    Messavage needs someone to break his head open.

    Sorry for the violent text, but I am beyond angry right now. How that short ass psychopath gets away with what he does shows you just how cowed and weak the people around him are.

    And to think I once donated to keep that stuff going. DAMMIT. I would rather send money to Kim Jung Il, than DM. At least with KJI you know WHAT he will do with it. With DM, he makes you think that money goes to expand Scientology, the little 1.1 c–ksucker.

    I am off to have a few shots of Patron to calm me down. That’s Patron, the tequilla, not the Patron that spends 40K to seal his own fate with squirrels.

    God help me, I am so mad right now. Marty, don’t post anymore declarations until I am able to buy more Patron.

  32. Where do we go from here? There are apparently “under the penalty of perjury” affidavits that contradict each other. Both cannot be true and if there is a pain of perjury can any action be taken? If it is he said she said with no evidence we have a Mexican standoff.

  33. That’s quite a knowledge report!
    Best wishes to Marc and Claire in their fight.

  34. I could barely read it all Marty, and it made me weep. How painful.

    Thank you.

    You have stepped up in the most difficult way.

    Thank you.

    Chimes of Freedom

    Far between sundown’s finish an’ midnight’s broken toll
    We ducked inside the doorway, thunder crashing
    As majestic bells of bolts struck shadows in the sounds
    Seeming to be the chimes of freedom flashing
    Flashing for the warriors whose strength is not to fight
    Flashing for the refugees on the unarmed road of flight
    An’ for each an’ ev’ry underdog soldier in the night
    An’ we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

    In the city’s melted furnace, unexpectedly we watched
    With faces hidden while the walls were tightening
    As the echo of the wedding bells before the blowin’ rain
    Dissolved into the bells of the lightning
    Tolling for the rebel, tolling for the rake
    Tolling for the luckless, the abandoned an’ forsaked
    Tolling for the outcast, burnin’ constantly at stake
    An’ we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

    Through the mad mystic hammering of the wild ripping hail
    The sky cracked its poems in naked wonder
    That the clinging of the church bells blew far into the breeze
    Leaving only bells of lightning and its thunder
    Striking for the gentle, striking for the kind
    Striking for the guardians and protectors of the mind
    An’ the unpawned painter behind beyond his rightful time
    An’ we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

    Through the wild cathedral evening the rain unraveled tales
    For the disrobed faceless forms of no position
    Tolling for the tongues with no place to bring their thoughts
    All down in taken-for-granted situations
    Tolling for the deaf an’ blind, tolling for the mute
    Tolling for the mistreated, mateless mother, the mistitled prostitute
    For the misdemeanor outlaw, chased an’ cheated by pursuit
    An’ we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

    Even though a cloud’s white curtain in a far-off corner flashed
    An’ the hypnotic splattered mist was slowly lifting
    Electric light still struck like arrows, fired but for the ones
    Condemned to drift or else be kept from drifting
    Tolling for the searching ones, on their speechless, seeking trail
    For the lonesome-hearted lovers with too personal a tale
    An’ for each unharmful, gentle soul misplaced inside a jail
    An’ we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

    Starry-eyed an’ laughing as I recall when we were caught
    Trapped by no track of hours for they hanged suspended
    As we listened one last time an’ we watched with one last look
    Spellbound an’ swallowed ’til the tolling ended
    Tolling for the aching ones whose wounds cannot be nursed
    For the countless confused, accused, misused, strung-out ones an’ worse
    An’ for every hung-up person in the whole wide universe
    An’ we gazed upon the chimes of freedom flashing.

  36. Marty (and I perceive the hand of MJR in this as well),
    It would appear that all your earlier interviews and writings were a prelude to “throwing down the gauntlet” in such a precise way.
    Doesn’t leave him any room to weasel his way around, despite having mouthpieces lie for him prodigously he is backed into the proverbial corner by this document.
    Well Done and deep thanks.

    Can well imagine him gnashing his teeth, stabbing wildly, eyes popping and so on….

    He really is so afraid of you Marty & Mike, for very good reasons.

        They SAY their “responsible” as DM announces to the public why we “OT 7’s were screwed up” telling us then we had to go back to go, repay it, $25,000 and re-do it, although he’d just announced we were “trained wrong”.
        That’s responsibility? I’m sure we could all list thousands of similar examples. Words—to lurkers—-Clear them, please, for real, and start using them in *your* life. TLC

  37. Forgot to mention- that’s Bruce Springsteen singing.

  38. Also wanted to mention that I really appreciate how you have put what the Headleys are doing into the correct perspective. They deserve and need our support and I had not seen that before, so thanks for that.

    Thank you for sharing your report

  42. My heart goes out to Claire and Marc, and I support what they are, and every other whistleblower is, doing to help bring the abuses to an end.

    Those who have witnessed must bear witness. It is not a “sin” or a transgression or high crime to stand up for what is right, to support change that will end abuse and corruption, and to stand for values that are basic human rights.

    Neither you nor the Headley’s are creating the battle.

    If we don’t exercise our rights, we’ll lose them. Do comes before Have.

    That affidavid is just a perfect dissemination piece for E-mailing to friends and aquaintances still “in”. It covers a lot of ground.

    Insane. I hope this leads to a day we see Miscavige in court.

  45. Now that’s what I call a KR. Nicely done Marty.

    DM (just in case it slipped your attention) you are under one big ass Comm Ev and make no mistake about it, we are your peers and you are answerable to us as are all ‘Sea Org Members’ and ‘public’ who are monitoring this site and creating black PR campaigns to hide the truth (we will ensure you are added to the Comm Ev as interested parties unless your activities warrant a separate and individual justice action).

    If you would like to provide a legal copy of your posting order as ‘COB’ we would love to add it in as part of the evidence for the Comm Ev (your story is that you were personally hand-picked by LRH for this post right? – can we see it in writing please, signed personally by LRH?)

    Sooner or later ALL of the evidence of ALL of your activities with ALL of the witnesses will be at hand – even those you continue to attempt to silence.

    Make no mistake justice will prevail because we know our ethics and justice tech and can and will apply it.

    If during your poor experiential track as a Scientologists you have learned anything, you should know that armed with the correct technology we can and will fight and conquer any suppression you may throw our way. LRH had all the bases covered and we just had to wake up and grow up and get our necessity level up to the point of having enough ethics presence to do the right thing.

    We have it now. You are NOT above the law and you are NOT absolved from nor immune to group justice.

    Claire and Marc – thank you for all you have done and are doing. Will send a separate message on FB.

    • Sam,
      Right on the money with this being a Comm Ev! Once again I hear LRH in my head saying “When you don’t have a Qual the world becomes your Qual”. DM eliminated Senior Qual over him so that he couldn’t be corrected and we the public are wearing that hat for him! There could be 1000 KRs written on that point with the appropriate Danger Condition assignment to DM.

      • Gandiguy
        you got it!
        or how about this gem from HCOPL ‘THE JUSTICE OF SCIENTOLOGY,ITS USE AND PURPOSE BEING A SCIENTOLOGIST
        “…Failure to take our usual justice actions on offenders against us will result in eventual chaos. What matter if they don’t appear before the Committee of Evidence we convene on them? How could the Victoria Parliament ever come right if we failed to (a) Convene a Committee of Evidence (b) Follow our legal procedures?…”

  46. Marty;

    Yes I do see you’re back in the saddle. Right out of the gate you set up a “HIGH NOON” challange to Dear Leader and his posse of boot lickers.

    I was incouraged to read others have also submitted declarations to the court.

    It is gratifying to learn, the Headley’s have many friends coming forward. After meet other ex-SO members at your wedding I would say this court case has some legs.

    Count me as one who will help.

  47. Thanks for stepping up and putting it on the record, Marty. Integrity is a wonderful thing.

    Maybe some day DM will get a clue about that……

  48. Marty is doin’ it right, well done sir !

    Big Lawfirm is Big

  49. Thanks Marty for helping the Headleys with this declaration.

    I understand why these Sea Org Members are willing to lawfully defend Scientology and LRH based on their beliefs and dedication to their religion, but I am amazed at how easily they are willing to commit perjury and break the law through their lies for DM.

    I always wondered how DM and his family was able to dodge such huge bullets in the past – his Dad’s rape charges, his sister’s insider trading stock scam that you lay out so well, his own complicity in the treatment of Lisa McPherson to name a few.

    Now we know he was working with a stacked deck in his favor and was dealing off the bottom.

    Its also amazing to me that he seems to get away with these perjurious lies and the government does nothing about it.

    Maybe now the thunder will come down and he will be brought to justice once and for all.

  50. Dear Marty,

    The explicit details contained in your declaration are chilling, to say the least. DM is undoubtedly smiled on “from above” by the likes of Adolf, Stalin and Mao.

    As to the “How could this happen?” some insight perhaps can be found in the Milgram Experiment.

    From Wikipedia:

    “The Milgram experiment on obedience to authority figures was a series of social psychology experiments conducted by Yale University psychologist Stanley Milgram, which measured the willingness of study participants to obey an authority figure who instructed them to perform acts that conflicted with their personal conscience. Milgram first described his research in 1963 in an article published in the Journal of Abnormal and Social Psychology,[1] and later discussed his findings in greater depth in his 1974 book, Obedience to Authority: An Experimental View.[2]

    The experiments began in July 1961, three months after the start of the trial of German Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann in Jerusalem. Milgram devised his psychological study to answer the question: “Was it that Eichmann and his accomplices in the Holocaust had mutual intent, in at least with regard to the goals of the Holocaust?” In other words, “Was there a mutual sense of morality among those involved?” Milgram’s testing suggested that it could have been that the millions of accomplices were merely following orders, despite violating their deepest moral beliefs.”

    Link:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milgram_experiment

    Marc and Claire- My deepest hope for your successful outcome.

    Once again Marty, Thank you for all you do. Let freedom ring.

    ML,

    Tom

    • Further studies were done on this subject by Phillip Zimbardo in his Stanford Prison Experiment and in his book, “The Lucifer Effect: Understanding How Good People Turn Evil.” The book is a good read and very interesting. You can also google his name and see some videos he did on the subject.

      Dar Williams did a great song called, “The Buzzer”. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EHqU8D8faDs

      • martyrathbun09

        Raindog, for the record that Stanford Experiment video available on the net holds many parallels to what went on at Int. Also, what you have stated ties right with what LRH says on the subject of how an sp becomes one. First order of business is, consider that someone else can be evil. That then opens the door for continuous overts to be committed against the “evil” one. It generalizes and before long the cat is mocking up enemies and he is under 24/7 seige be Martians.

      • “It generalizes and before long the cat is mocking up enemies and he is under 24/7 seige be Martians”

        On that note: I just saw on the news that mr. Hugo Chavez of Venezuala thinks the 250 americans stationed on the (lower) Dutch Antilles are to invade his country alsoo he accuses the dutch of invading his airspace 3 times.

        That cat is sick as a puppy, Hugo Chavez that is.

      • I think this also ties in with Milgram et al:

        Back in 1964, 38 of her neighbors saw/heard Kitty Genovese being assaulted and finally killed over a period of a half-hour, and no-one did anything to help her:

        http://factoidz.com/diffusion-of-responsibility-and-the-murd er-of-kitty-genovese/

        Her killer started to leave twice because he knew people were watching from their windows, but finally returned to kill her because he concluded no-one would do anything to stop him. In much the same way, Miscavige continues his destructive behavior.

        Social psychologists now call this “diffusion of responsibility” or “bystander apathy”.

    • It takes a REAL HERO to do what Marty is doing!

    • Mods, the link to the Kitty Genovese story in my last post broke. Here it is again, fixed:

      Maybe delete my first post, with the broken link?

      This is a well-studied phenomenon since 1964, when 38 of her neighbors saw/heard Kitty Genovese being assaulted and finally killed over a period of a half-hour, and no-one did anything to help her:

    This “KR” ranks up as the best of all time a long with Mary Jo’s.

    It’s apparant that this man has truly lost his mind. And he is taking thousands of followers down with himself. Sad but true.

  52. “I had to physically relocate the portly man to end his assault of John”

    I love that line!

    Me thinks that this declaration may have very long legs! It doesn’t take much imagination to see that what Marty wrote covers a very wide area of DM’s activities, well beyond the immediate issue.

    • Speaking of ‘declarations’, is there a central data base that lists out all the declartions XSO have made regarding DM etc.?

      Many XSO have filed them since the early 80’s and together they make a very compelling case to have DM etc., federally investigated.

      Do such declarations have a shelf life, or are they good forever?

      If the measure of an OT is by how much of their environment they can reach and influence, it seems to me that Marty is pretty much hugging the whole world these days!

    “Falsified “board minutes” were also created by OSA at Flag. I was the Treas Sec FSO for 7 years.
    Part of keeping the tax exemption included providing board minutes as proof that a board did exist and meet. Every year OSA created “board minutes” for meetings that never occured. ” [snip]

    I’m not legally savvy, but it seems to me that
    with this evidence and Marty’s declaration, plus
    declarations from Larry Brennan, there may be enough to make null and void tax excemption.
    Its a bit like tax excemption for the mafia!

    Also COB would be liable for charges of fraud,
    and maybe more.

  54. Dear Marty,

    I’m deeply impressed by this couragous, straight and honest declaration. That’s making things go right ! Very very very well done !!!

    The text sheds a peculiar light on the mental state of Misc. Seems he is quite a motivatorish guy ( motivatorish = concerned with what others do or did to oneself, be it real or imagined ; own deeds are ignored ).

    That’s just another similarity between Misc and Hitler. At the end of world war 2 Hitler reportedly felt betrayed and blamed the German people for letting him down ! ( after he had ruined the lives of many millions of Germans … ).

    There might come a time when a scientific paper about insanity of cult leaders will include a chapter about Misc.

    All the best for you and your friends !!!

    • The interesting thing about that was Hitler ordered the flooding of the bomb shelters to drown the German people who betrayed him by losing the war. Any in good standing Scios take note. the” boss” aint got your interests at heart.

    Thank you so much for laying it out there, exposing yourself and the crimes of DM.
    I believe you have the chops to bring down this corrupt regime.
    Thank you for answering so many questions I have had over the years such as “Where is this Board that DM is Chairman of.” I have not believed for a long time that such a Board existed.
    Also, to Mat Pesch , please, please make an official declaration regarding what you know about falsified “board minutes.” It is important. How as a group can we profess that living within the laws of the land are desirable, when the Church flaunts them? This can not stand.

  58. Marty,

    I’m going to guess that you are having a massive effect on DM.

    I’ve never received so many emails from so many orgs as I have in the last week or so. Over fourteen thus far, just today.

    Here’s one which I thought I should share, due to the impressive amount of lies, PR and BS!

    (names have been changed to protect the innocent)

    Dear Sucker,

    With the Scientology religion expanding like never before, the Sea Organization is booming as well. At Flag we are increasing our ranks tremendously towards the opening of the Mecca here at Flag and thus the release of the Super Power Rundowns.

    From an international standpoint this expansion is vitally needed and the only way to pull it off is to further increase the number of staff here.

    Please assist us in this by filling out this short survey:

    • Also, the current promo being sent out from CSI about the OT Summit 2010 event is just about the ugliest, mestiest put off I have ever seen come out of the cofs. The artwork is so heavy and mesty that even the water in the wave of the background looks heavy and overwhelming. The Roman numerals look like barriers.

      A truly wonderful heading on one postcard states…”Witness a Golden Age at the Threshold of The Bridge” huh?? Can somebody please tell me what that means, exactly?

      On the other piece:
      The messsage is to “Expect the Unexpected”, whatever that means. It is noted that the admission is free, bring your friends and family; what is not mentioned is the cost of exiting.

      Just sayin’….

  59. I split my screen. On one side, your declaration; on the other, the Freedom mag, or more precisely, rag. You were specific; Freedom generalized. You respected the parties and provided a workable timeline; Freedom (and I now use the name loosely) could not spew enough patronizing vitriol. The bottom line is this: I could present your declaration, and blog, to those interested in facts. Not so for “Freedom,” which is now useful only as an example of a “church” gone off-the-rails and its despotic leader.

    Well done and thank you! Look for a donation.

      A/L,

      How about a new name for the rag mag…

  60. Wow! That’s quite a report Marty. I find difficult to believe the expose’ can continue for much longer without severe repercussions withing the C of M, Kool aide drinkers aside. I am stunned again by your information.

  61. vwd!

  62. This was great Marty! OSA wants you all to fight each other – but if we can have truth and reconciliation from everyone who has escaped, the whole story can be told and no one will have to go through this type of madness again.

  66. I’m impressed by the declaration, Marty, it really explains it all. I thought I had a rough time of it but actually it was nothing by comparison. I bet by writing this KR it was a very therapeutic excersize for you in that the unburdening felt much like an auditing session…I believe I even blew a little charge just be reading it.

    You know it’s interesting…I haven’t been sick, had financial problems or anything since leaving that organization almost a decade ago. My life has only gotten exponentially better. And to think I used to tell people their lives would improve by contributing, donating or joining staff.

    No matter what you did back then to forward DM’s evil purposes and malintentions Marty, by your actions today I truly admire and respect you.

  68. Marty,

    After reading that, I think you will be remembered for a very long time as the guy who did something about it!

  71. Ann Rathbun asks accustatively to an SO member who happens to be tanned, “How did you get so tanned”? That person said, “riding my bike during lunch”. Now after a year in the RPF that 6′ tall person down to 150 lbs, gaunt and pale looking like an escapee from the natzi concentration camps must have satisfied the likes of DM & Co., meanwhile he is satisfyingly tanning in his beds laughing all the way to the bank and enjoying the tortue he has committed along the way. The wog relative asks, “Is that person well, looks very sick to me”? In defense of my Church I say yes, all is well, what a joke.

    I joined Scientology to help myself initially but quickly grew to love and understand LRH’s intention for mankind and that all of the dynamics (that we as thetans are responsible for), have in their continual creation, the KRC and ARC to survive.

  73. Marty,
    First thing when I finished reading the deposition, I thought I am so proud of you. You don’t need me or anyone to tell you that, but it was the genuine, earnest sentiment in my heart — I’m proud to know you because of the straight up person you are.

    And that is justice in and of itself. It restores my faith in my dearest hopes, dreams and values.

    Just the fact that there are people like you in this world is a form of justice. It’s why our very souls cheer when we see someone stand up and give a voice to persons being ganged up on by any form of bully/illegal/tyranny.

    This deposition is one more way you are giving sanctuary to many. It’s a sanctuary from past and a sanctuary of future.

    These thanks go to the Headley’s too, who are standing up because it’s the right thing to do, no matter what. That’s the step each of us took in our own ways.

    That step was initially taken under threats and duress that are difficult to fathom, and no matter how alone it seemed we were –we each took that step to do what was right, no matter what consequences were being pummeled and threatened.

    Marty, this deposition not only stands up for Claire and Marc. It’s not only standing up for the honor of L. Ron Hubbard, who devoted his lifetime to research and develop tools to undue life’s agony of eons. You’re not only standing up for people who gather here from around the world. You’re also standing up for principles that are universal and timeless, and as commonly shared by all humanity as tears and laughter are.

    that is what is at stake here.

    Congratulations and thank you for getting it on paper — for your own relief, for the relief it will bring the persons involved who read it and find release in truth and understanding, for my personal relief as I cross-compare similar experiences and outpoints.

    The travesty being perpetrated on people by the “Church” of Miscavology that has hijacked Scientology for its own agenda stands in history with the most grievous violations of decency — in the name “help”, conniving campaigns serve self-importance, greed and money.

    Like all evil, it seems incredible. Because the “hook” is baited with some Scientology, the trap and disguise is more illusive, because people experience some gains.

    I have faith that the US Justice system will have the experience and wisdom to know that about evil: when looking at embodiments of evil, the more evil the crime, the more unbelievable it seems.

    If there is a judge who himself or herself believes fervently in goodness, in decency, in trust, and has ever had that very dream used to lure one down a path that served another purpose, then there’s hope.

    I’m really at a loss for words to comment on how despicable what has transpired is — from the usurping of Hubbard’s body of work and intentions, to the crushing of staff and auditors and pcs, to the invalidation of cases, gnarling up cases… nope, I have not cooled off or blinked. Still whitehot holy rage. (An SP can mess with me, but don’t mess with a friend

  74. I went to the Pasadena Org yesterday to get my $2000 back that I had put on account. The place was packed. I had not seen it so busy in years. Mary Dolan was no longer there. I was told she moved on to the Dallas Org. The current executive director is Rona Bowles but she wasn’t there. I asked for the dissem sec and was introduced to Franz. He told me how much money was in my account and when I told him I wanted it back, he was a little taken aback and said that I needed to talk to a different person. He then disappeared for some time and I was chatting with an old ex Detroit staff member who was now on staff in Pasadena. He had over heard me and asked why I was leaving. I told him that the current management was evil and that he should read some of the interviews and information on the internet. He told me that his sister met DM and told him that he was a really nice guy. I insisted he wasn’t and that he should just read what is really going on. I waited around for almost an hour with no one helping me and finally told Franz that I was leaving and would return with my attorney to which he replied “Have fun”. I left and a short while later someone named Wayne called and didn’t leave a message. Then I got a text to call him. According the guy I was chatting with, he said that they have 160 staff members now. I don’t know where they got all the staff but the place was not empty. I saw one young guy doing the staff member new hat drills where you locate the org board and other various objects around the org. The Grand Opening is Sunday at 6:00 in their new building on Raymond and East Colorado. I saw the names of quite a few people I used to know who had donated their time or money to all of this. I only brought all this up because I have been reading about how all of the orgs are dead with no bodies in the shop and I have observed the same thing on Berendo Street at the AOLA and at the Pasadena Org. On Tuesday this week however it was crowded. Does anyone have an explanation for this? I would like to know. The bottom line is I just want my money back that has been sitting in my account now for two years and do not want to get a “free arcx session” or do a routing form to get it. It is my money and I want it back.

      Dean, Go back three weeks after the opening and report what you see. If you read multiple reports on this blog through its history you will see there is a ponzi scheme afoot and it uses bodies at grand openings to con more donations.

      • Marty,
        Thank you for your comment. I just went back and read the blog by Mike Rinder “Idle Orgs-The Great Ponzi Scheme”. I understand now. These new 160 staff are from all over the place. It all makes sense to me now. I had just never seen it in action before. I will return in a few weeks to see what it looks like then. I also want to add that you have my full respect and back up for your brave declaration. I was feeling nervous and afraid when I went into the org the other day and I was just getting a repayment. I did not have PIs following me around and all of the many things you have had to contend with. I had been a
        Scientologist for forty years and spent twenty years on staff. I am no longer a Scientologist and have become more involved with God but I love you guys and I feel that what you are doing is very good. You have taken responsibility for your wrongs and are making them right despite personal danger and all of the evil you are confronting. I can see that you are a religious man and whenever I see you or others on your blog refer to God, I know you are winning. Connection to the eighth dynamic is the one thing that DM and his minions can never do. They do not believe in God and communication to or about him is just something they never do. It is always about themselves (third dynamic) and never ever is God acknowledged. Again, thank you Marty for being there and confronting the evil. I will continue to support you and keep all of you in my prayers.

        Dean

    • Hey Dean,
      They get those staff from other orgs. It’s DM Musical Chairs at its worst. Robbing Peter to pay Paul doesn’t work. The orgs that aren’t in the spotlight get crippled by losing key staff. It’s like a Hollywood set, a facade, and when the shoot is over, it’s on to the next performance.
      Keep raising hell about getting your money back. Good luck.

    • It is so good to see your name after all this time. You were a close friend of my cousin Earnest and a well respected NOTS auditor at AO for many years. Let’s get in touch, I’d like to get caught up with you.

    • Dean,

      First of all, I believe you went into the org on OT Committee meeting night. You were obviously upstairs and not down in the tech/academy/auditing area. The place gets packed upstairs on that one night and is dead the rest of the time. With the opening coming up, there’s no doubt a flurry of activity and undoubtedly more public upstairs doing stuff for the grand opening.

      I find it completely unbelievable that there are 160 staff members, even taking staff from other places. Where did that information come from? There were 20 or 23 a short time ago. However, there were about that many OTC members at one time supposedly, although I never saw more than 50 at any one time, and that was during special events we were putting on.

      Something isn’t adding up. Jus sayin’

  75. Excellent and, I hope, devastating declaration, Marty.

  76. More thanks to you Marty for your declaration, to the Headleys, Mike Rinder, Amy Scobee – all of you. My belief is that you are revitalizing Scientology and LRH tech exponentially, this is certainly the result in me. This site has been and is a godsend. I was in the SO for 10 years and left. I never had to deal with any of the abuses such as those described at the Int Base – for which I guess I was lucky (I had an opportunity to go over the rainbow once). I know how I felt joining the SO in the first place, something I think we all shared, the beauty, power and simplicity of the truth and LRH’s tech inspiring the commitment. To read about what DM has done and continues to do, to those who had this commitment, there are really no words. Scientology works, LRH’s tech works, so we know ultimately DM’s house of filthy cards will collapse, and he will most likely be lost under that rubble for quite some time. The truth always wins out. Thank you so much for what you are doing and the service you are providing

  77. Marty,

    Gosh – I know it has been said already many times and in many different ways already, but your declaration just left me speechless.

    Your words are like a hot knife through butter, or the torch of light in the darkness that one only has to follow to get through a storm…
    metaphors are not even good enough to describe the impact your words have in this mess.

    Your testimony of the truth brings about an as-is in this suppression like nothing else can. It just puts the pieces of the puzzle together – who could question it? It makes the articles from the Freedom magazine look like a bunch of snotty and spiteful little kids making a lot of noise because somebody told them “NO!”

    ANYbody with any sense at all, without knowing you or DM, should be able to see this – the image being promoted out of that Freedom magazine is just proof of how far south these guys will go.

    Thank you again for who you are and for having the integrity you have to do what you are doing. You have my infinite admiration and any back up that I can give for what you are doing.

    • martyrathbun09

      Damn Janela, knocked me off my chair. Thank you. And thank you for weathering the storm and coming out brighter than ever.

  78. Theo Sismanides

    Marty, this is great. Your declaration… is really a big blow to DM.

    I need assistance though as the link does not open, can anybody send it to me on my e-mail? thetamag@yahoo.gr

    Thanks

  79. Thought Provoking

    Truest of words, spoken by the guy holding the 2×4 atop of the 10′ fence. DM’s toast!

  80. I want to read it but I need to straighten out my adobe first. Anyone know Is there another way to download it?

  81. Wow Marty. What an affidavit. That is incredible stuff. As for Marc Headley, it was his book that FINALLY brought me to REAL present time.

    I had tried to leave Scientology many times before, but each time was too afraid I’d never be able to survive well without it.

    Marc’s book made me realize there was no way in hell I could support such an organization in good faith and that I had been severely lied to.

    As a result, I slowly but surely woke up. For that, I am forever grateful.

    There is honestly not a day that goes by that I don’t say outloud, “Thank God I am no longer involved in (that) Scientology.”

  82. Theo Sismanides

    Marty, I read your declaration. Very detailed and thorough. Miscavige is more than a psycho.

    Miscavige is actually GAMBLING with Scientology. As I was playing a poker game on my iPhone I had this cognition. The guy is constantly bluffing.

    The guy has been gamgbling all along without us knowing and of course winning because HE IS playing POKER and We think we are doing SCIENTOLOGY.

    So, there you have it. He amasses tons of money and bluffing each time so that we FOLD. Ha,ha. I finally learn some LAS VEGAS stuff.

    Now, start playing the game guys, it’s called POKER and start bluffing at him and you will see WE will win. Nothing up to now made sense to me as to how he can win with all this crap until I had this cognition.

    So let’s deal the cards now Dave and see what comes up! You have amassed so much money and power because we were honest and conservative. There is a poker game on the iPhone and we are getting hatted here, you freak!

    People just could not imagine what a scumbag you are! Now, you’ve had. The Internet, the iPhone all of this have uncovered ya! Have fun, scumbag! You ain’t winning anymore! hahaha. You can’t bluff now. We know the game you are playing!

    Powerful stuff – very brave.

  84. “The Headleys were encouraged to think in simplistic black and white terms. Scientology was good; all else was evil. The tenets of Scientology were right and any challenges were wrong. It was understood that expressing thoughts in shades of grey would not be tolerated. This simplistic thinking is a common lure in cults, which often attract recruits by offering them simple answers to the complexities of life. Scientology documents professed solutions to the problems of living (p. 69). Whether or not they truly did offer solutions is open to question. On the psychological level, however, this way of thinking serves to undermine the need for individuals to take control of their own lives. Facing the complexities of life is a struggle. Relying on simple answers from an outside source relieves one of this burden but it requires the relinquishment of independent thinking and personal control. Once an individual settles into the comfort of simplistic thinking, it quickly becomes habitual. It has long-term consequences for decisions about leaving the group: Members get used to thinking this way and the fear of living on one’s own, where one must confront the complexities of survival, becomes a serious deterrent to leaving. Levine, 2003, supra.”

  85. “Marc then describes the sequence of pressures that convinced him to stay. First, he was confronted by a staff member named Gary Morehead:

    A. And then Gary Morehead came and saw me. I was in the HCO division, the Hubbard Communications Division of Golden Era
    Productions, and Gary Morehead basically said, you know, if you leave you’re going to get declared anyway. You’re never going to see your sister again, because my sister was now working at Golden Era Productions. He said you’re never going to see your family again. You know, you really have to think about if you want to leave. I mean there is a policy – an advice that L. Ron Hubbard wrote that says if you leave the Int Base you automatically get declared, so, you know, you’re basically never going to be able to see your family again if you do this, and do you really want to do this?. . .”
