    This can't end well for Co$ - just more proof they are their own worst enemy. They just can't leave well enough alone. This is just another example of them creating a very vocal critic by messing with them. I wouldn't be here if they hadn't cut me off from my daughter.
    Emma, we all have your back.
    Tory, I have always thought "tick, tock, tick, tock" was so spot on!

    I leave for awhile and come back to this!:omg:

    The cult is really self destructing nicely I see.

    They kicked a HUGE hornet's nest this time.

    We're all behind you Emma. :yes:

    aww gee, ya went and deleted the thread by what's-his-face asking about the negativity of this site and addressing Emma in colorful language! driving cab yesterday i composed a good sized response which i began to pen today and wanted to post. dagnab! i got some good material in it, very similar to my well received first post "an open letter to x-x" in tone and form.


    well, i'll see if i can figure some way to recycle it.

    damn, come to the desk with a masterpiece in hand and get the vellum yanked from beneath my quill.

    It's amazing how short sighted and stupid the cult is. Their list of enemies grows and grows. The lists of ex members grows and grows. They have to do the most incredible mental gymnastics to rationalize adn justify what they are doing, yet they still continue to act this way. Gawd.

    RE: Scientology's pursuit of silence

    Dear Emma,

    Scientology deceived US Federal Judge using 6" of ex-parte ( no opportunity to reply before the judge decided to give those ********** an okay for the search warrant ) The judge (LATER) upbraided $cientology in open court for failing to mention in those 6" of ex-parte filings that "what Mr Lerma posted was an innocent copy of a public court record from the central judicial district of californina"

    Im having flashbacks to 1995.... to that saturday morning I was raided...and my computer and drives taken away and my home searched...

    Emma, now you really know why I stayed so motivated for so long,

    Rule #1 has always been "Turn everything they do to advantage" < which has been mastered by others and now by Anonymous

    I managed to turn what $cientology did to advantage. by gettig an aircraft carrier sized boatload of publicity...for the cause of exposing the true nature of scientology. LINK

    I recalled a great one liner from Lawrence Wollershiem derived from his previous 17 years of litigation (17 years in 1995)!

    "Scientology always attacks because they their conduct is indefensible, they are unable to defend!"

    So I went on the attack...

    I used a fast Brother laser printer (courtesy of Bob Minton) to mail out tons of stuff to orgs and to members whose addresses I could find (WISE lists etc) - and sent out over half million pages of paper printed and mailed out for this congress, judges, representatives, clergy, even The Elks and Shriners etc

    Scientology even got the US Postal Inspectors
    to visit me, claiming I was sending "hate mail"...
    I showed the Postal inspectors the actual mailings I had sent, THEY said what I was mailing was not hate mail!

    Example: "How long would I have to run a small electrical current through your body while telling you all the things that you wanted to hear before you started to believe that I held the keys to the secrets of the universe See Exposing the CON"

    Another time I had the FBI show up at my door, and it was about a followup to some message on ARS whose title was "Black out ARS" or was due to a claim that I was going to bring down the internet. (I know how improbable it sounds, but after all these are the same folks that brought us XENU:


    I invited them in and showed them around, and we developed a relationship... later on when scientology would send them rubbish about some critic they were targeting trying to get them hassled by the Feds, I'd get a fone call...asking

    "What about this guy? " (I wont name names but one is big poster here on ESMB) and Id tell em what I knew about the guy with emphasis upon whether they were capable of being an actual physical threat to anyone...

    So again I turned scientology's attempted entrapment to advantage, and used the event to save other netizens from being hassled for nothing - other than $cientology's lies.

    The authorities should be encouraged to pursue those who waste their time and resources by lying to them.

    If you feel an affidavit or sworn statement by me about these three events would help (and I have a few more non publicized) - all initiated by scientology''s LIES, let me know.

    Yeah, no kidding, right? That is psychotic. The irony, hypocrisy, dichotomy (it all fits in here somewhere :coolwink:) is surreal to me.

    Firstly, for an organization that's supposed to be experts at communication, as a staff member it could take me literally months to get an answer on a dispatch or months to get PC folders out, a week or more to get a CSW approved and at our reception area, messages came in and somehow never got delivered.

    For an organization that has such supposedly amazing Administrative Know-How, it can take years (not exaggerating) to organize a simple committee of evidence.

    Lastly, like you say, it is supposed to be an organization about TRUTH and it lies constantly.

    It just simply is NOT what it says it is and if it spent the amount of energy it spends pretending to be something it is not actually just being that thing it is supposed to be, it would make everyone's lives a lot easier. That, however, doesn't appear to be the plan.

    So the attacks against Scientology have tripled in
    the last year alone. You know what the why is, don't you?

    Yes sir! They only attack more when we are
    flourishing and prospering!

    So you know what do do, right?

    Yes, sir. Apply affluence and strengthen
    whatever is causing those attacks and
    do more of that---so we can be attacked
    even more and have even higher stats!​

    Emma, I'd seriously consider taking Arnie up on this offer. This is stuff the police here need to know. And the sooner the better. Give them a chance to save face.

    I think it's better to let Emma's attorney request and collect affidavits, etc.

    That made me laugh. But then I realised - that's not boring. Therefore your argument is flawed. Which means you are opening yourself to risk.
