    David Miscavige: Valentine's Day Massacre/Purge

    Monday, 03 May 2010
    In 1995 we were briefed at Int on a major security breach that had taken place at Incomm. Down in LA weeks later I saw a hunted pale platoon of Incomm crew being marched from a backlines corridor into a doorway. Back up at Int, David Miscavige bragged at a briefing to Int base staff that he was going to catch the spy and that the staff were undergoing an RTC ethics program that Miscavige was personally directing. As a note to these and any other ex-SO who were coerced to sign contracts for non-disclosure to enforce silence, you can determine the validity of all such documents with a simple test: were you provided with a copy of the contract or agreement? If not, then the "contract" is NOT binding and has NO legal force on you whatsoever. So let the power of truth ring out. ~ Thoughtful

    This is probably the worst incident that occurred in the history of the Church OUTSIDE of infamous INT BASE.

    It is the worst incident of kidnap, held against will, breaking laws of the land and it happened on Valentine's Day 1995.
    It lasted 4 months and was perpetrated by RTC and COB breaking many laws of the land.

    For 4 months, INCOMM staff members were under complete lock down, unable to see their spouses or children marched only to their berthing to sleep by security Guards.

    A Mission arrived "to get ethics in" on the alleged criminal "out ethics scum" that were INCOMM SO members. Liz Ingber and Suzanne Bolstad were head honchos.

    "INCOMM" definition: The organization of SO members that manage everything to do with Church computers; short for "in communication."

    Liz Ingber -- this woman is the "Cold Chrome Steel" as described in previous article. She is detached, emotionless, cruel, unable to feel but happy to mete out cruelty I have known her personally for more than 3 decades and I will state she is an unconscionable evil witch.

    Liz Ingber orders INCOMM staff into 2 lines, all males in one line, all females in another line. Circling in between the lines were a bunch of INT Missionaires with lanyards and the fruit salad of colored insignia. They carried batons similar to the German swagger sticks.
    These are Batons giving a symbol of authority (and ability to strike or beat ~~ British cops carry batons)

    Every single SO member is handed a manila envelope, told to write their name on it and empty their pockets and if wearing pagers, it went into the envelope. The SO member then had to spread the legs and spread out their arms while a metal detecting wand was frisked over the body from head to toe. This kept on going for a while. A new person would enter the room. They were ordered to empty their pockets, spread eagle for metal detection and go stand in male or female line. There was an uncomfortable silence and sense of heavy ethics.

    Liz Ingber called the room to "ATTENTION!" in a toneless disassociated unemotional cold voice spat out "You are all assigned a condition of Confusion. You are all suppressive with hidden crimes of magnitude for allowing an SP to infiltrate INCOMM. Your daily massive crimes have blinded your perception which is the only REASON you did not detect the infiltrator. You obviously do not care in an SP destroys the Church. You are hereby under House Arrest. You will not leave the base, you will not leave INCOMM, you will not talk to your family, you are under total lock down. Your crimes permitted your minds to be so blinded to this enormous threat that could have taken down Scientology in totality~~ man's only help and only solution."
    Happy Valentine's Day!

    The Sound of Silence in the room was deafening. There is a certain kind of mental mass that builds up in a group when they are being maligned, threatened and their immediate future is taken away in a lock down. The group's awareness level drops to the bands of Catastrophe and Disaster. There was a frozen numbness.

    There were no KRs. No data of WHO this infiltrator SP was. There was no Court of Ethics, no Comm Evs being called, there was no consideration of whether anyone was upstat or downstat, everyone was to do conditions and write up their overts and withholds. This then started a massive and endless cycle of sec checks, rejected conditions, re-done conditions, write ups of every "CRIME" these dedicated, billion year contract SO members were committing.

    A young guy from Denmark approached Liz Ingber. He explained to Liz Ingber that he had a big overt he had given up in his Sec Check and felt he should route out as he was not up to SO standards. Liz Ingber, did not ask what he gave up in the sec check, she did not ask him to work through a condition on it, but instead told him he would be instantly declared suppressive and could go join the walking dead. She tells him he would never *EVER* in ANY LIFETIME, *EVER* GO OT. She is detached as cold chrome steel.

    The next day Liz Ingber berates an INCOMM staff member for masterbating she does it publicly to humiliate him. This is 1995, a decade before the infamous INT SP Hole, and pc folder withold of masterbation is read out to the entire crew to mock and humiliate the SO member.

    Suzanne Bolstad now starts a vitriolic attack on the shell shocked numb SO Members. "I see most of you are not OT III. This is plain evidence of the criminal out ethics of the group. Good up stat SO members go OT, only the criminal downstats would withold themselves from case gain and Bridge. You all have serious crimes and as criminals you are subconsciously witholding yourself from becoming more able !' There was no mention that there were no auditors, or staff enhancement personnel within INCOMM to get them up the Bridge.

    Days turned into weeks, turned into months. Over and over and over the word CRIMINAL is given as an ITEM to SO members who had nothing to do with any breach of security. It was sec checking, O/W writing, and conditions. NO contact with family, complete and under isolation from the rest of humanity. They were herded by security to berthing which was isolated from rest of crew and herded back to INCOMM. In order to do Amends over the above a group member, many lost sleep doing heavy deck cycles ~~ hours and hours of manually moving back up tapes from storage in Burbank. Another amends was destroying 14" cartridges that stored data files. The reflective backing had to be obliterated, hard drives had to have the magnetic media sanded off. Sleep, amends, sec checks, O/Ws with a complete cut off from family and the outside world.

    When you have to figure-figure on your crimes day in and day out, hour after hour, week and after week, it is damaging spiritually. It is Black Dianetics. It is Reverse Scientology. It is a David Miscavige perversion of the tech. Even psychiatrists are not that cruel. This demand for crimes 8 hours a day for months is not only unhealthy, it introverts the person into depths of case they may not be able to extrovert from.

    Normally, one of the steps of Liability is to get permission of the majority of the group to complete the step. As a complete arbitrary, the Mission announced that every INCOMM liability formula had to get the approval of ALL the Missionaires, (a bunch of them), all RTC involved. and ALL INCOMM who had been upgraded. This was tough. Rejects by RTC were common. No typewriters existed and because INCOMM staff were such a bunch of "untrustworthy criminals" every single formula had to be hand written with carbon copies to make duplicates, and so it dragged out. Time was endless. Work, study, ethics conditions and amends were in the same room for these 4 months. Sleeping was under guard. Walking to the Shower was under guard by escort. There was no other life. There was no free hour or free minute. Every hour of every day was controlled and taken over with dire threats of suppressive person declares which would result in complete disconnection from family.

    Finally after 4 months of complete lock down and captivity INCOMM staff were threatened once again to not reveal ANYTHING that happened under further dire threats of declare and doom forever and forever disconnection from family and friends. It was not to come up in any future session! In other words the orders were to withold the lock down from here on out. Some were taken to sign documents swearing secrecy on video camera and reminded what would happen to them if they ever spoke of this lock down EVER.

    Now the purge finally started. From approx 60 Incomm staff, it was down to 10. Many were further punished by being sent to PAC estates from whence they blew. Some simply blew after the 4 month incarceration. This TERROR side of Scientology was beyond what many could stomach. Not everybody has a threshold of tolerance for such absue ~~ 4 months of interrrogating for CRIMES. These fine SO members who had passed high HCO qualifications to get clearance to be in INCOMM were IMPLANTED to think they were the criminals of all time. The last 10 SO Members instead of going back on post were ordered by Miscavige to be RPF'd after surviving the 4 month brutality. Not a single charge or specific. They were handled as BLOB. The BLOB had no individuality. The BLOB was responsible for the out security. Almost all of those remaining 10 fled. (blew)

    One of the worst tactics of Church of Miscavology is treating the crew like a BLOB. Everyone is penalized for one person's conduct.

    This is remarkable given that there are many references to the fact that A does not equal B, does not equal C.

    In fact A=A=A is a known reactive mind flaw.

    Not with Miscavige's implementation of ETHICS. It somebody BLOWS, severe punishment and abuse is inflicted on those around, as the conclusion is that "bad indicators" were missed, by those around. The reason they missed these indicators were they had there own crimes and overts hence making them unable to perceive the indicators around them. I have known of SO members sent the RPF for YEARS due to someone ELSE blowing.

    Meting out the exceptional cruelty in the SP HALL where everyone was treated like one mad mob with no one able to get up the conditions is an example of squirrel Miscavige ethics. THE BLOB treatment. There are no upstats, there are no producers, there is no ethics change acknowledged, the blob is to remain a continuous BLOB.

    The Sea Org has a knack of recruiting good people. Extremely good personnel. Bright minds. Spiritually aware. Recognition of the Legacy of the tech. Wanting to help others, wanting to be of service. But the SO cannot maintain good people. It just does not happen. It is a revolving door and many flee to get out of the Church of Miscavology. They flee from the abuse. They flee from the brutality. They flee from the Insanity.

    These 60 SO members were not just removed from post, they were abused 24/7 for 120 days breaking many FEDERAL Laws of lock down and enforced kidnap against their will with unconscionable threats.

    Dan Garvin is acknowledged for having the guts to post this dark episode SO history on the Internet in 2003 on Operation Clambake. I am now in touch with blown INCOMM staff who endured this ..still decompressing ! More about the terror imposed on good staff will surface in due course. It was Dan who called it "Valentine's Day Massacre" and the name was just too apt to try renaming it. Dan was another computer whiz wasted by the Church. He left soon after this incident as well.

    This dark episode needs to be on record in because it shows Scientology Management via David Miscavige executed his total authority over the lives of SO members even at PAC base, and in the first years since 1995 when this occurred, the brutalities intensified but the odor and fingerprints are unmistakeable.

    My next posting will reveal the story of the Infiltrator, what he stole, what he posted on the web and why Linda Hamel of OSA freaked out so badly.....

    My only gripe is that this is NOT "black scientology". This IS Scientology. Without this sort of totalitarianism and delusional action, it's NOT scientology.

    Truth.. The 'mindset' and methods of all that was in place in the Guardian's Office when I was there in 1979-80, albeit not as gruesome.

    However. It is geat that this story comes out.

    Besides.. I recall something from ARS.. About COS (INCOMM) using a WIFI network.. Wasn't called that at the time I think.. However, it was a wireless 'radio' network.. And some dastardly SP malcontents was able to monitor the network and copy it all.

    I just found out tonight the identity of "War and Peace" is Karen de la Carriere. :yes:

    It's an incredible (and certainly disturbing) story. I'm giving it a bump for any recent arrivals to ESMB that may have missed it.

    Thank you T4 for posting this.

    How could this SP bitch invalidate SO members for not getting to OT III, when they are never given the opportunity to go into session and even if they were, wouldn't be sessionable by virtue of lack of food and sleep? Not that getting to OT III is such a big accomplishment and it is probably better that they didn't audit that crap.

    Scn could add another line to the Creed - This time they could actually stick to it:
    All execs have the LRH given right to punish non-scientologists and if they can't do this, they have the right to incarcerate any SO member and carry out punishment on them instead.
