Open Letter to Sky Dayton

Sky,

Check out the log entries below from the office of David Miscavige’s “COB orders on the internet” excerpt book.

#1 shows he is excerpting some comment made to you (whether verbal or written you’d be the most qualified to recall) and distributing it to Scientology Inc international and Golden Era Productions executives and staff.

#2 and #3 are subsequent utterances he made to Gold staff over the next two days – referencing his ‘comm line’ to you and your recommendations to him.

#4, a year and one half later he is still dropping your name while uttering the usual utterly incomprehensible, do-less drivel.  This time it is to the four ‘highest’ execs he’s got at that asylum. Incidentally, 2 of those 4 are long-since on the outside looking in, while Guillaume and Yager remained imprisoned, see e.g. ABC Nightline Special on the hole.

Note well that Miscavige does nothing with the fact of your communication of ideas except to make others wrong with them.  Hell, he could have passed along your comm in full and told them to execute it as a strat plan and program if he had any intention whatsoever of disseminating Scientology.  But, he didn’t.  You can read myriad testimonials on this blog about how Miscavige handles all communication like this. Check your Science of Survival and compare.

Now, compare this to another – one of hundreds of such random, off-the-wall orders – order he delivered on ‘marketing’ just a few months earlier, see earlier marketing order.  Good reason I suppose for using your suggestions for no other purpose than making others wrong – I am sure your suggestions cross ordered his psych drug company marketing implementation plans.

Dude, bottom line, you spoke or corresponded with this guy almost TEN years ago.  Has he listened to a single thing you advised?   After TEN years do you think he is ever going to?  Do you really think you are serving the greatest good for the greater number of dynamics by supporting this suppressive sociopath?

Cheers,

Marty

[EXCERPT]

That’s ancient history and the fact is I can consider the Internet the greatest advance ever in terms of real dissemination to really clear the planet.  In fact, without the Internet, I don’t think the job could ever get done.

RE: DIANETICS CAMPAIGN AND MEDIA LINES

[EXCERPT]

You’ll also understand now why I can’t believe that CMU will not get set up with a full-blown Internet unit.  I read what Sky Dayton writes compared to you guys, and there is somebody thinking.  I could go on and on about Internet, but we’ve still gotten nowhere on this.

RE: BOOKS ON TAPE AND OTHER ITEMS

[EXCERPT]

Maybe one century we’ll get a Marketing Unit.  I think our guys are the most rank amateur there are.  They can’t even sell to Scientologists (I have Sky Dayton writing to me about setting up Div 2 internet sites and yet in 15 years I’ve never been able to get Gold or Int to care about one Div 2 function), let alone broad public actions to drive people in.

RE: INT STRATS AND PRODUCTION

 [EXCERPT]

[Internet Marketing Strat.] “I spoke to Sky Dayton who thinks the best thing to do is e-mail. And my plan is we can have banner ads, this ad and that ad, so what we’ll do—here’s my strat: Create a cutting-edge Div 6 interactive site.” He just won’t get it.  How many times have I said there’s some way to market on the Internet? He had an online bookstore. I said—wait a second, I want to know the way they market on the Internet and then we can keep it going forever.

Scientology Inc to Mimic Psych Drug Companies

It ain’t just the gaudy, cavernous Idle Orgs that is keeping public out of Scientology Inc. organizations.  It is also David Miscavige’s myriad off-the-cuff, off-the-wall orders across the org board.  Below is another classic – ordering Scientology Inc. Marketing to duplicate the marketing of psych drug manufacturers.

RE: RAW PUBLIC MARKETING (PSYCH ADS)

[EXCERPT]

As a matter of fact, I don’t know what Marketing is thinking about.  A copy of this should go to them.  They should literally gather up from all these marketing companies all their Prozac, Paxil and all this stuff- all this psych marketing, I guarantee you, on the Internet site it literally tells the doctors how to sell their patients on it. So, my point is they could be using this right now.  You want to do raw public marketing, we just save that much money when they say, “We can’t get any research done.”

Founder of Scientology Net Nanny

Windhorse mentioned the infamous Scientology Inc Net Nanny software in a comment to the last post.   The software was presented as a template to set Scientologists up on the goofy, retro ‘Scientologist’ networking site.  But,  it was embedded too with a program that would block those Scientologists from finding out anything about David Miscavige or church of Scientology from the internet at large.   In the event anyone had any doubts about whose brilliant idea that was, I present David Miscavige’s order to Commanding Officer CMO INT (Marc Yager – roughly equivalent to CEO of church of Scientology International).

RE: GOLD ORG BOARD

[EXCERPT]

As for the Internet, I don’t know how a marketing unit could operate without the Internet these days. Everybody is into the security, which is fine. But they sell kiddy filters to stop naughty Gold staff members from going into porno sites. The other one is to just have an anti-entheta on Scientology filter. INCOMM could resolve that easily.

Scientology Inc. Internet Nannies

Scientology Inc. is providing a ‘service’ to assist corporate Scientologists ‘keep undesirables off your lines.’    It promises to ‘clean up’ everyone’s email lists so that there is no one on it that is not a fanatical, kool-aid drinking Miscavige devotee.   In true Orwellian style it is being offered by the “IHELP” branch of the corporation.  Here is the pitch being distributed from the management building at Hollywood Blvd and Ivar Ave:


Hello!

Please read the below and follow the directions.  This is an
important cycle of action and will help keep undesirables off your
lines as well.

Ml, CO I HELP West US

We are in the process of cleaning up all email lists to make
sure you are not inadvertently contacting some terminals who are no
longer in good standing with the Church. We have set up a line so
this can be done easily and a service will be provided for you to
keep all lists clean on a regular basis.

Follow the below guidelines to provide your email list for list
cleaning. Be sure to include any lists you use, e.g. your contact
list, email address book, email mailing lists, etc. There’s no
limit to the number of lists you can send in. The point is – send
them all!

If you are using Outlook, Thunderbird or another similar email
program to manage your lists, then these programs typically have an
“Export” function with which you can export your email list.
For example, in Outlook, select your Contact list, choose “File”,
then “Import & Export”. From the “Import & Export Wizard”, choose
the option to “Export a file”. Choose the file type called “Tab
Separated Values” (Windows). You will be prompted to choose a file
name. Save the exported data.
Otherwise, provide your email list in a comma-separated, tab-
separated or Excel spreadsheet file with one email address per line
in the file so that it can be processed easily.
If you have questions as to how to export your email list using the
software that you have, you can send an email to
addoservice@scientology.net for further instructions.
Send your lists to addoservice@scientology.net.
Let me know once you have sent in all your lists.

Indie 500 Update – Brad Halsey #340

News Flash. The real action in the Indie 500 occurred at Steve Hall’s Scientology-cult.com.  Brad Halsey roared out of the house!

I am gonna’ try and keep this write-up short and sweet.

I was on staff for D.C. Fdn. from 1987 to 1997 (was on tech posts the entire time).

I trained as an Outer Org Trainee at FLAG as part of the Class 8 Senior C/S training program from 1992 to 1996, an Int program that drew 135 people from around the world begining in 1992.

I was there at FLAG when the Golden Age of Tech was released in 1996. At that time only 2 of 135 people had completed that Class 8 Senior C/S training program. That program was a collossal failure at that point in time, based purely on that one stat.

I saw that it was going to add two more years to what had already been a 4-year stay, so I quit and went home.

Can you imagine training for 4 years straight on a Sea Org schedule, where you never get a day off because you are overdue on course? And then on top of that, you now have to do the whole Golden Age of Tech lineup? OMG man, they defeated me with that one, for sure.

Two months later I am back at my org with every intention to finish up my contract, and a golden rod comes down from Flag that says all my previous certs were cancelled and that I have to train from Student Hat all the way up again. At that point I routed out. I was done with it.

I was already Word Clearer interned and Class 4 interned with about 1500 hours in the chair as an auditor when I arrived at Flag for higher training, and at the time I left had completed the full theory of the BC and all auditing requirements on Level O.

I can’t tell you how frustrating it was knowing that all the while I was there, they only made it harder and harder to complete.

It’s just plain, flat-out suppression.

Net result: “make it so nobody can get through.”

By obvious design, Miscavige has now made it so you can’t get up either side of the Bridge:

1. Who has the money to pay Org prices for auditing? (especially with the insistence nowadays that you give it all to the IAS in exchange for nothing in return.)

2. Even if you can afford training, who wants to be on training courses for the rest of their lives, never to even find the damned Auditor’s chair? OMG, LRH would just be aghast if he saw today’s lineup of “prerequisites” to Auditor training.

Anybody who cannot see that this is a blatant effort to KILL OFF all Auditor training is just blind as a damned bat!

And if you want to see a very nice presentation of statistical analysis over the past several decades, I highly recommend you go to the site called “Friends of LRH” and read the series there called “What Happened to Training.”

Wow, is that a good write-up! Especially from my own point of view of having lived it and been the effect of it.

There are so many things wrong in Scientology today that have all been so well documented on this site and others, that I need not go into any additional detail on any of that.

We all know how wrong it’s all gone.

Bottom line – there is a raging SP named David Miscavige at the top and he’s your WHY for all of it.

Thanks to the advent of the Internet, there is now tons of ample evidence, you just have to open your eyes to it.

There’s only one thing to do and that’s just choose whose side you’re on.

Please add my name to the Indie 500 list.

Thanks,
Brad Halsey

THIS IS MY COMING OUT STORY

Marilyn Brewer

 

 I got into Scientology in summer of 1971 at the mission in Phoenix, AZ.  This was shortly after high school, did a little college in Tucson, AZ, and continued at the mission in Tucson, AZ where I received Standard Dianetics, objectives and ARC Straightwire.

I eventually ended up at the newly formed “CC Phoenix” under Doreen Casey, the ED and the org was a Sea Org org.  Joined the Sea Org and was sent to LA to train as a Flag Rep for Phoenix.  I was kept in LA and became the D/FR ASHO Day (under Val Mazzafari and Ingeborg Steinberg the FR WUS).

Then I was transferred to Sacramento org as FR Sacramento until went to Flag (RONY, Relay Office NY) where Flag management was while CW was being put together.  We were in Queens along with Jill Carlstrom, Alan Buchanan, Diana Hubbard, Roger Barnes, David Light, Grumps (Ron Gablehouse) and Liz Gablehouse, and George Cuthbertson (our famous cook).

I arrived by bus to Clearwater Nov ’75 just in time for Christmas. I was then the FR EU/UK, Org Manager EU/UK, Management Aide (all in the Flag Bureaux). I did lots of missions to EU/UK.

In 1977 I was on OEC/FEBC training Flag with Mike Rinder, Jens Bogvad, Hank Laarhus, Joyce Colt with Chuck Beatty supervising. In 1981 set up WISE, then off  to St. Hill to set up SMI Int.

Back to LA in 1982.  June ’82 my husband Ed Brewer was killed in a car accident in the hills of Glendale, CA.  (Certain amount of mystery around that still. Church management did not tell all on this. )

After Ed died, I went back to SMI Int in LA.  (was gone for the time period when de-dinging got its start in the mission network).  As a result of being gone and not getting “tainted” by the de-dinging, when I returned I was sent to the mission holders conference in San Francisco as the SMI rep.  The story of this infamous conference has been covered a thousand times.  It was a massacre and in my opinion the beginning of the end of Scientology as we knew it.

Back in LA I did an eval to “sort out the Bridge”.  Due to the success of that eval I got pulled to Int as D/ED Int for Establishment.  (Marilyn omitted here that LRH was impressed by her eval on the bridge sort out and it was a wildly effective eval). At the time there were 4 people in Exec Strata, (ED Int-Guillaume Leserve, Jens Urshkov-D/ED Int Production, Peter Specker-Qual Exec Int and myself).  It was my job to man it up and get everyone hatted.  So I began the process.  It took me over a year to get all the posts filled but I did it with lots of missions out around the world.

One of the last posts to be filled was a major post turnover cycle that started at the mission level, progressed to and through a Cl IV org, to AOSHEU and finally arriving at Flag.  This turned into a 6 month job to get Freddie Hunsicker, the last person to fill the last post, properly replaced.  As soon as he arrived ED Int got prompt orders from Vicki Aznaran to turn Freddie over to man up CST. Guillaume landed more bricks on me.  I screamed and yelled it was “off policy”.  His response was “If we didn’t do it, then Vicki would take Jens Urshkov (our only real evaluator at the time).  My heart was broken and I just thought there was no way to enforce policy.

Then along came DM (David Miscavige).  Every week we had to write up a “Weekly Report” for our area to be forwarded to seniors ultimately landing with DM for final summary to LRH.  We as Int Execs never got to see the outgoing summary, but always saw the incoming letter from LRH.  I concluded by the responses coming in that LRH was being lied to by DM.  I concluded that based on the fact that LRH’s response did not fit “the scene” at Int Mgmt.  With only a single viewpoint to operate from, the multiple viewpoint system was lost.  The odds were not too good.  That was all in 1984.

Finally left the Sea Org because David Miscaviage kept coming down to see ED Int and telling him of certain celebrities 2D peccadilloes after he read reports and worksheets of these celebrities.  This was gross.

By the beginning of 1985, I was gone to Canada to see Ed’s family. Now out of the SO  I stayed 2 years then came back to the states, ending up in Portland, OR with a large Scientology field.  I went back to med school, only this time for Chinese Medicine/ Acupuncture.  I just celebrated my 20th year reunion last year since graduating. I have been a practicing acupuncturist/Chinese herbalist and Dr. of Chinese Medicine for that period of time.

When landing in Portland I got back on lines at CC Ptld.  (Too much story to go into)  Mid 90s was ready for some L’s and took off to Flag for L11/12.  I was training as an auditor at Ptld when along came GAT.  I was at the end of the rope.  I slowly drifted away and moved back to Phoenix to be closer to family.

Closer to PT in 2009 I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  I became an Indie (in my mind, unofficially) but due to all the time devoted from me to fight this, I didn’t need any outside distractions.  So now my fight is nearly up and I have nothing to lose and wanted to officialize my Indie status.

Last year I found out that Tom Martiniano (who I hadn’t known before) and Linda McCarthy were in Phoenix.  I was so thrilled to meet up again, especially Linda because we were roomies back in the early days at the FH (Fort Harrison hotel, at Flag in Clearwater).  She has always been a good friend – but now she is a sister to me.  Tom is my fantastic auditor.  I don’t know if you can imagine someone with a heart so big to do all that was necessary on me to get me onto NOTs.  We had planned to do a 3-way round robin on NOTS, but it didn’t work out on my end….but no worries because Hayden James and Lucy have picked up the slack.

I’m telling you all of this now because in the RCS I would never have had the opportunity to receive this auditing.  As usual when you apply standard tech you get amazing results.  I would have awful pain and go into session only to come out with no pain.  After many months with Tom, it really is a miracle:  I have no pain.  My nurses and even my family can’t believe it. And while the cancer is not cured this lifetime, I’m 100% sure that I will never see the likes of breast cancer ever again.  Tom and Linda were there for me on more than one occasion to pull me out of some real rough situations.  Tom and I finished a few weeks ago and I’m spiritually in the best place I’ve ever been.  This current body has a lot of difficulty breathing and so it will be cast away for new shiny model.  I’m looking very forward to it and plan to be heading to Italy and wine country!  If you have any suggestions, let me know.

It’s been such an honor and pleasure to hear the stories of the ex-SO/RCSers; both Indies and non-Indies alike.  Old kindred spirits.  I thank you all in advance for the fabulous support and until the next time… Bon Voyage.

The Game Where Everybody Wins

A new necessarily quiet-for-the-time-being independent told me that he wanted to make a big contribution to the cause.  He asked what do I really need or want.  Knowing he was flush at the moment and was intimating he was thinking monetary contribution, my snap answer was $12,755 so that everybody who paid into the Indies Defense Fund for the Battle of San Antonio could be made whole just like those who contributed directly to Debbie and Wayne were. I’ll be a monkey’s uncle if that individual didn’t cut a check on the spot.

I have a list of every contributor to the fund and the amount donated that was made through my blog’s donate page.  I don’t have an address for anybody.  Please, everyone who contributed for the Cook defense through my blog’s donate page (or mailed one in directly to me) e-mail me with your name and address where I can send a check to.

Some have stated they would pledge the money to some other worthy sub purpose if they ever got it back.  Still, I need to write you a check; you are free to do whatever you want with it.  But, in order to save me (and us by extension) unwarranted taxation I need to administer this fund in that fashion.  If you wish for the money to remain in the fund itself, you can also let me know by email.  In a reasonable time – once I’ve heard from most everyone – I’ll report on what remains in the defense fund, and will therefore be available should the need arise.

Personally, I think it would be perfect poetic justice for you all to get your contributions back to use as you see fit; so don’t be shy.  I look forward to the day when I can tell you who it was that I wrote a check to you on behalf of.   Poetic justice is beautiful thing.

So, email me your address.
