HOW SCIENTOLOGY COERCED A CHILD TO HAVE AN ABORTION: THE LAURA DECRESCENZO FILES

—————- In anticipation of her biggest day in court yet, Laura DeCrescenzo and her attorneys hit the Church of Scientology with 928 pages of new filings —————- Details from 18,000 pages of evidence show how Scientology manipulated a child to keep her working under slave-like conditions —————- A key document describing DeCrescenzo’s unwillingness to have her coerced abortion is missing from the evidence Scientology was ordered to produce By Tony Ortega Wednesday afternoon, Laura DeCrescenzo filed explosive new information in her four-year legal odyssey against the Church of Scientology, submitting 928 pages of new declarations and exhibits in anticipation of a crucial October 23 hearing in her lawsuit against the church which alleges abuse, including allegations that she was forced to have an abortion at only 17 years of age. Key to the new filings is information gleaned from thousands of pages of previously secret files that the church fought mightily to keep under wraps. But on Monday, the U.

Alanna Masterson’s Dad Calls Connor Cruise “Worst Person in the World” for Her to Date

Joe Reaiche, in his playing days

Joe Reaiche, in his playing days

The Underground Bunker has teamed with Australia’s biggest-selling magazine, Woman’s Day, to bring you a report that should send some reverberations through Scientology celebrity culture.

In its newest edition, which hit store shelves in Australia a few hours ago, Woman’s Day has published a photograph taken last month showing actress Alanna Masterson, 24, and the son of Tom Cruise, Connor, 18, on a recent lunch date.

The magazine and the Bunker teamed up to ask Alanna’s father, Joe Reaiche, for his thoughts on his daughter spending time with Connor.

Reaiche is a former Australian rugby star who now lives on Long Island. When he left Scientology behind in 2005, his entire family cut off ties with him, including Alanna and her half-brother, That ’70s Show actor Danny Masterson.

Reaiche’s views on Alanna spending time with Connor Cruise were not very salutary.

“I worry that she will see this as some sort of validation of Scientology that she is now going out with him and she gets access to Tom Cruise and his lavish lifestyle,” Reaiche says. “Connor is the worst person in the world for her to date, because while she’s dating him there is no hope that anyone will open up her mind to see Scientology for the scam it really is. I call Tom the Prince of Darkness — he’s got a warped view of Scientology and I don’t want my daughter anywhere near him.”

 

Photos of Connor and Alanna showed up on various gossip sites last month.

Reaiche himself was lured into Scientology in 1978, while he was playing rugby. He in turn helped recruit fellow athlete Chris Guider, who we’ve written about in the past.

Reaiche says he was convinced to try Scientology by a young woman at a train station.

“She said Scientology could cure my groin injury — I feel stupid now but I got sucked in — they are very good at getting in your head,” he says.

He later married Carol Masterson, who already had sons Danny and Christopher Masterson (who would go on to be a regular in Malcolm in the Middle). Joe and Carol then had a son, Jordan, and daughter, Alanna. They lived in Florida and the entire family was heavily involved in Scientology.

“At that time we were living in one room that didn’t measure more than 20 feet by 15 feet and I was working all the hours under the sun for $20 a month, the roof over our heads and dinners that were just beans and rice,” he says.

“I paid for my kids to go to private Scientology school but it’s a total fraud — just endless looking through dictionaries,” he says. “My kids have taken courses on the Scientology mega yacht called the Freewinds that cost $650 an hour — and recently Alanna gave them $35,000 because they told her they could give her superpowers. That’s on top of the normal 50 to 100 grand a year she pays in fees.”

Scientology’s own publications show that Alanna has a healthy history of paying for church courses.

“In the time I was in Scientology they probably got $400,000 from me,” Reaiche says, “but the worst part is that I haven’t seen my kids since 2005 because when I became unhappy, the leadership ordered my family to cut off all ties from me.”

Reaiche was “declared a suppressive person” — Scientology’s version of excommunication — and he worries that he’ll never see his daughter again.

“They know if they can force my daughter to get together with Connor than they will both be in it for life,” he says. “That is my biggest nightmare.”

 

In 2010, Reaiche was interviewed about Scientology for Australia's "Four Corners" program.

In 2010, Reaiche was interviewed about Scientology for Australia’s “Four Corners” program.

 
Reaiche says he’d like to talk to a fellow Australian about Scientology — Nicole Kidman, Connor’s mother.

“I’d love to talk to Nicole Kidman at this point because I bet she feels the same way — she is an ex-Scientologist who must be looking at her son Connor and wishing he wasn’t dating my daughter because she’s a Scientologist,” he says. “I bet Nicole wants a normal life for Connor just as much as I do for Alanna.”

    God i used to love malcom in the middle ..and that OTHER ONE……
    I was/a am huge danny masterson fan…
    I hate that about me!!!

    • dbloch7986

      I just watched it for the older bro. The show reminded me too much of my own family lol

      • Captain Howdy

        “Malcolm In the Middle” was a far superior show to “That Scientology Show”, imo.

        • 1subgenius

          And kick ass theme by They Might Be Giants.

          • richelieu jr

            I’d love to see some ex-Scientology kids singing:

            “You’re not the boss of me now! You’re not the boss of me now, AND YOU’RE NOT SO BIG!!” to little Davey…

          • Captain Howdy

            Actually “Malcom In The Middle” was so good I broke my rule for watching TV shows with scientologists in them

      • richelieu jr

        Well, he’s the $cilon! Take a bow!

        • richelieu jr

          Actually, maybe there was an older older brother I am thinking now?

          • Minion Gayle

            No, you’re right. Malcolm’s oldest brother was the Masterson kid (Chris?) The one that was away at military boarding school most of the time.

    • http://twitter.com/Scientology_411 Scientology_411

      Sometimes when I watch Breaking Bad I can’t believe it’s the same guy who played Hal in Malcolm in the Middle.

      • 1subgenius

        He’s a good actor. And he’s not a Scientologist.

      • richelieu jr

        He’s pretty much the definition of crazy talented…

      • Mrs Libnish

        Lightbulb on! I didn’t realize….love the BB

  • sugarplumfairy

    Jeeez.. Now they cure groin injuries..

    • dbloch7986

      Why wasn’t I allowed to cure groin injuries when I was in. I’d love to have put in some work on Chris Masterson’s groin.

      • sugarplumfairy

        Hi, Sweetie! My guess is the big beans had dibs on the good groin injuries..

        • richelieu jr

          Probably why DM was -giving so many people his pointy little knee to the nuts…

        • Captain Howdy

          Chili Palmer would have gone Vincent Vega on poor Derek for Chris!

        • richelieu jr

          Mmmmn… bean dibs….

          • sugarplumfairy

            And me with no chips..

    • 1subgenius

      I pulled a groin muscle this weekend.
      It wasn’t mine, but it was still pretty painful.
      (Sorry to repeat, but I couldn’t help myself.)

      • BuryTheNuts2

        That whole light installation is getting old….LOL

      • sugarplumfairy

        It’s still funny..

  • Missionary Kid

    Do you find it ironic that Danny Masterson was in a 2009 movie titled, “Bridge to Nowhere?”

    • sugarplumfairy

      yep..

    • richelieu jr

      Less Ironic than fitting/telling…

  • Britpoptarts

    Danny Masterson played “Hyde” on That 70s Show, too. Think he dragged Laura Prepon into the cult.

    • Captain Howdy

      Danny has a brother who was on “Malcolm In the Middle” who is a scientologist also.

      • Britpoptarts

        Yes, Tony’s article mentions that specifically. :D

        • Captain Howdy

          Gee, thanks for pointing that out.

    • Vistaril

      Noooooo . . . not Laura, please, not Laura!!!

      EDIT: Yep, you’re right, I had to go and check and, sure enough, my one TV crush has gone the way of Xenu. I think I might have been told about this before but had managed to generate sufficient denial, now disintegrated.

      • richelieu jr

        Yeah, it’s bummer, but she’s less hot as a blonde anyway…

        • BuryTheNuts2

          shut up!!!! she is a ginger at heart!!!!

          • richelieu jr

            Let’s hope not just at heart!

            In other words, let’s hope the carpet patches the thetans, eh?

            • BuryTheNuts2

              hehehehe

            • Captain Howdy

              Took the words…

      • BuryTheNuts2

        But she quit…quickly!
        And she portrayed Karla Homolka. She fucking rocks!~

        • MissCandle

          Bury, my girl, are you into serial killer/rapists too?

      • Captain Howdy

        Like BTN says, from what I’ve heard Laura quit..and took up Kabbalah…just kidding.

    • richelieu jr

      Yes, ‘Hyde’ went ‘Seek ‘ for DM…

      I would have preffered for him to go Sikh, but whatcha gonna do?

  • PreferToBeAnon2

    Haven’t read the post yet…but geez Tony! I go away for a few hours and whizbang… 100+ new comments PLUS a new post PLUS a tease for tomorrow! Not that I am complaining or anything. Ok, on to Connor Cruise. Thanks for feeding the Bunkerites, Tony!

    • richelieu jr

      “Whiz”? “Bang”? YOU’RE A SCILON!

      I can tell because it’s like “WHOOSH!”

      • PreferToBeAnon2

        Uhoh. This is not good Cardinal. Clearly, I’ve been immersed in the Bunker a bit too long.

        • richelieu jr

          I absolve you. Go and never ‘Whoosh again!’

  • sugarplumfairy

    ‘I bet Nicole wants a normal life for Connor just like I do for Amanda.’. So frking sad..

    Imma go say my usual bedtime prayers.. That co$ gets sucked into hell..

    • Missionary Kid

      Amen.

    • Kimberly Gooden Bumpas

      Amen, my friend.

    • Remy

      Amen to that!

  • F_Randy_Hullabaloo

    But of course the disconnection policy was canceled years ago — doesn’t exist.

  • Kimberly D Davis

    Does this mean Bijou Phillips (D. Mastersons wife) is a scientologist? And what about Agnes D., the model married to Ribisi? What about Elvis Presley’s granddaughter, Riley Keough?

    • http://twitter.com/Scientology_411 Scientology_411

      Bijou Phillips definitely is, she was on the cover of the Celebrity Center magazine a little while back.

    • Captain Howdy

      Bijou was a scilon long before she met Danny. Considering who her father was, I can almost understand.

      • BuryTheNuts2

        Really didn’t you all see the naked pics of hervatb C C when she was bogging a an unknown?

        Autocorrect is fucked…. Boffing!

        • Captain Howdy

          Lol wut are you talking about in gawds nane?

          • BuryTheNuts2

            About bijou, fucking strangers in CC.
            I don’t understand why you people cannot translate BTNSpeak!!!

            • Captain Howdy

              Got pics? She’s a cutie.

            • Mrs Libnish

              You are sick. That was funny!

            • pronoia

              Well if that is true it would be rather typical behavior for someone who grew up in an incest household/environment. Also getting sucked into a cult.

    • BuryTheNuts2

      Um, yeah!

    • ThetaBara

      Aggy has said that she is not a scientologist and sort of laughs it off. They got married very quickly, so who knows what the situation is. Hopefully she won’t get sucked in but we all know how it usually goes.

      • BuryTheNuts2

        I don’t believe her…do You?

        • ThetaBara

          I don’t really follow her enough to have thought much about it, but this question comes up frequently and I do know what she *says* about it. Of course, with scientology it is never easy to tell what is actually going on.
          You’re looking lovely in your new avatar!

          • BuryTheNuts2

            Thank you. Tomorrow is another day……………..

            • richelieu jr

              Does that mean the dress is made of curtains?

            • Robert Eckert

              It just means that she’s sworn she’ll never go hungry again.

            • L. Wrong Hubturd

              No, it’s the awning from the local Golden Coral buffet.

            • Missionary Kid

              At least it means she saw it in the window and liked it.

            • hogarthian

              And do we know whether the curtains match the carpet?

        • hogarthian

          No.

      • richelieu jr

        I’ve heard her say he typical ‘Interesting classes, not a Scilon but student of religions (cf Agent Smith et al) in trashy celeb mags here in France…

    • hogarthian

      I was horrified when I read that Aggy’d married Ribisi. It’s a shame, ‘cos he was one of my fave actors until I found out he was a brainwashed cult member. I have read that she’s said of him, out loud, “he’s fucking awesome” and, when questioned about his cult membership she replied something along the lines of “well, people that say that have never read the book”.

      She’s fucked, basically.

  • Remy

    “I paid for my kids to go to private Scientology school but it’s a total fraud — just endless looking through dictionaries”

    Incidentally, your children’s cognitive development was likely stunted by this idiotic dictionary addiction that the school/cult has. You may have grounds for a lawsuit, since the drug-addled inventor of this school was an academic failure.

  • dbloch7986

    I knew that the Masterson’s were Scientologists, but I did not know they had disconnected from their father. I’m so sorry. I hope that he and Nicole Kidman can form a friendship so they can both get the support they need and deserve.

    • richelieu jr

      Seems like he should be able to get Nicole Kidman on the phone doesn’t it? Shouldn’t really be that hard– Contact agent/publicist, enclose a copy of this article, plus ‘Hi I’m your son’s girlfriend’s dad– I think we should talk.”

      Can’t imagine she wouldn’t jump at that, sub rosa… (unless she thinks it’s atrap by Tom…)

  • http://twitter.com/Scientology_411 Scientology_411

    Yet another family torn apart by this vicious greedy cult. So sad. I had no idea the Masterson kids had disconnected from their dad.

    • BuryTheNuts2

      No shit. and I think Danny !!!!

      • richelieu jr

        I’m sorry one look at those kids and I thought they looked like assholes, like every kid who ever hassled me at school…

        • BuryTheNuts2

          did u get bullied? I

          • richelieu jr

            Well, not too bad. I was child actor, so I wasn’t in school often but when I was, at best I was forgotten,a t worst, they’d figured out why I didn’t have to go to school all day (though I did, with a tutor, just not with them) and I would get, I believe the term was ‘chosen’

    • N. Graham

      I hadn’t heard it, but am SHOCKED, totally Shocked to hear it.

  • media_lush

    Scientology match-making…. we all know how that goes!

    I wonder how Alex Pettyfer feels [supposed to be a closet and professional beard for the younger set]…. Connor’s best {boy?} friend… and, strangely, Riley Keough’s ex.

    Tommy Girl will be delighted to hear his son described as the

    “Worst Person in the World”, lulz

    Celeb scions…. it ain’t gonna get any better for them!

    • J.W.

      Uh, Alex Pettyfer is far from gay.

      • media_lush

        uuuh, and you would know this how?

        • J.W.

          Uhhh and I could say the same thing to you, how do you know he’s gay? It’s such a random thing to say about someone. He’s obviously not gay. There’s nothing about him that makes him seem gay. What a weird rumor to start about him.

          • media_lush

            I’m not ‘starting’ anything…. there has been a lot of discussion on UK boards about whether he’s gay or straight and, as I’ve mention before, I have friends in the top PR companies/Agencies and have worked in TV and media for many years. I’m not bothered about anyone’s sexuality, more in their willingness to deny it. The pretty much unanimous conclusion is that he bats for the other team [not that there’s anything wrong with that]…. a good looking young {closet] actor is manna from heaven for many actors managers as they are perfect beard fodder for young actresses… hence his association with Emily Roberts, Riley Keogh etc. I double checked with someone in the know and got “defo” as the reply.

            Incidentally my source told me that George Michael was gay about 5 years before the rest of the media caught up…. as well as Jody Foster. So, that’s my explanation…. please do tell how you know he is “far from gay”?

            • J.W.

              First off, you shouldn’t be bothered by someone staying in the closet because they would have every right to.

              Internet forums? Really? You think that’s a credible source. Have these friends in the PR world WORKED with him? Represented him? Unless your friend has worked for him and can confirm it, gossip is gossip. No it’s not a unanimous conclusion he’s gay, this is the first time I’ve ever heard of it. I have no clue how him dating actresses like every other actor out there means he’s gay. Anyone who says “defo” doesn’t sound credible.

              Hollywood has known Jodie Foster is gay for decades. Not sure how old you are but George Michael came out a LONG time ago. He’s far from gay because look at him, he just screams heterosexual male. I’m gay, I can tell who else is gay. Bradley Cooper is probably gay, not this guy.

            • media_lush

              my friend in PR isn’t a ‘worker’… this person is pretty much the main owner of a multi-million pound PR Agency and comes from ‘Hollywood Royalty’ …. this person became a very close friend when I lived in New York.

              I know what I know …. and after looking at these pics I would check your gaydar…. might need a tune up.

            • Seannie5

              Amazing how people on the internet try and back their statements up by saying ‘my friend is this/i know that person and they told me/it’s DEFINITELY true’ , and expects it to give them credibility

              Also, one of those pictures is Chris Hemsworth, is he gay too? Go ask your friend in New York!!!!

            • media_lush

              I should clarify that my friend is not a’ worker’ but is in fact a senior partner of one of the biggest PR companies in the world…. false gossip never really reached this person’s ears; I knew this person when I lived in New York and have kept close touch.

              All I can say is I know what I know.

              After looking at this pic I posted I would check your gaydar…. might need a tune up

    As long as scientology continues applying disconnection to families – stories like this will never end. And general public’s opinion of scientology will be getting worse. Will they ever learn.

      “They” are learning. The fiscal nonsense and brain washing tricks of the clamdom have become widespread public knowledge. True, they often only apply such knowledge to Tom Cruise and John Travolta, but they do tar the whole clamdom with that brush. Jenna M Hills book has done a lot to educate the public.

      I want to see the whole phallic Celeb Centre, or better yet, Big Blue inserted up Davey’s ‘TC Only’ hole.

  • N. Graham

    I remember the early campaigns to catalog the Internet. Yahoo was originally put together by categories, organized by subjects. Eventually about the year 2003 or so it kind of faded because it became so monstrous, the size of the net as it became more massive by the second, as it is today. And Scio wants to regulate this, make it so no “entheta” or “wrong” information about Scientology is spoken on the Internet, in any blog, in any language. Good luck with that Davey!

    I wonder about Connor. He’s musically inclined, he tweets, he goes to clubs, he does Facebook like his sister, I believe. How in the world can he not know what the world is saying. His sister’s boyfriend left the Sea Org–he must have heard a tale or two.

    • BuryTheNuts2

      Deny deny deny…but I hope not…………………..

    • Spackle Motion

      He’s the child of a big named celebrity. Chances are really good that he’s been taught not to look at certain things online or in magazines for years. I doubt that he ventures to look at entheta because it will ruin his “case”.

    • richelieu jr

      He won’t just lose ‘dad’ he’ll lose dad’s money and his ticket to stardom. Boy’s too smart for that, whether he’s drunk the koolaid, or not.

      • pronoia

        If any of TCs kids decided to slip away they could hopefully turn to their mother f-also a very wealthy woman- for support. And it is hard to believe that TC would ever be able to completely disconnect from them. The bad PR would be . . . well, really bad .

        Which is to say that if they wanted to, they could. They have options and do hold some cards.

        • richelieu jr

          Yes, that sounds quite credible to me, pronoia.

    • MissCandle

      But T.C. did not have to disconnect from Suri. Why do you think he would have to disconnect from Connor? Whoops PRBA2. I meant to ask richelieu jr this question.

    • PreferToBeAnon2

      Never seen that before… I got a minus 1 downvote. Didn’t know you could get below a 1.

    • Seannie5

      that chubby guy she was dating left scientology?

  • Synthia Fagen

    Wow — blockbuster hit out of the park. Joe Reaiche, I am so sorry. I wish I could tell you when this whole nightmare will be over (because it will be) but this cult is seemingly like an unkillable cockroach. I do believe the end is nigh but, as is usual, they’ve come out with another huge distraction — GAT II.

    If it’s any consolation, my husband and I were contracted today by a long time, very well trained Scientologist who wanted to tell us that she was leaving and told us of her bad experience. Her view is completely current. They are not having a good time inside. Yes, the celebs are more isolated but they’re still hit hard.

    Nicole, if you are reading this, could you please help this man and possibly benefit at the same time?

    • PreferToBeAnon2

      Nice comment, Synthia! Can you tell us if the person who contacted you is on staff, Sea Org, or public? Just wondering what the view is from those positions, as well as the celebs.

      • Synthia Fagen

        To Ruby and PreferToBeAnon,

        First of all, to the person who contacted us, please know that I would never divulge your identity and I may or may not have been telling the truth when I said it was a woman. The gender doesn’t matter, just the story.

        This person is a public who spoke of the fear and the inability to be free, speak one’s mind and to be oneself and this person’s need to officially leave. This person read Dave’s entire blog and Dave touched on most of the horrific things within the cult but not all of them from this person’s perspective. So, this person has been looking for awhile and finally has had enough. I am sure there are many, many more in this person’s boat.

        We will get more information. As I said, this contact was just today. This person is very trained too and a big asset for them to lose. I wish I could tell you all the gory details but we don’t have them yet.

        • PreferToBeAnon2

          That things are not status quo is quite encouraging; but, there must be a lot of confused, upset, and hurting folks out there.

        • Ruby

          Thank you Synthia! This makes me smile!

          • Synthia Fagen

            :)

        • Bob

          Synthia, yes there is a lot of underground activity going on. The general view of most clams I am currently in touch with is one of resignation. They still believe in scientology but they have given up hope of any real OT achievements. And I know numerous OT VIIIs who hardly live up to the standards for that level. And those around them are not very impressed. It has become a church of broken dreams. There are clams who are competent and make lots of money but they are hardly OTs. The incidents of family disconnections, is now a way of life for a clam. Very sad.

          • 0tessa

            ‘The church of broken dreams’ – I love that one.

          • Synthia Fagen

            Thank you for this Bob. Sad indeed.

            • Bob

              I know.,just found out about another cancer victim, they don’t have a clue.

            • Synthia Fagen

              :( :( Enough! Argh.

            • Bob

              Sorry, I will not pass on bad news to you again.

            • Synthia Fagen

              No, no Bob…it’s not you. I can take it…always give me what you got…the “enough!” was to the cult. It’s all good. You’re fine. :)

    • Ruby

      Hi Synthia…I would like to hear more of what your trained friend said of her current view within.

  • Kimberly Gooden Bumpas

    I hope Joe Reaiche is able to contact Nicole Kidman somehow and that they can talk about their worries about their kids. I hope someday this young lady and her brother will wake up and leave Scientology behind and reunite with their father.
    Stories of disconnection, such as these, involving parents and their children always hit me the hardest. This is why I became involved. This is why I won’t rest or stop fighting in whatever small way I can, until Scientology and Narconon are nothing but bad history.
    Good luck to you, Joe. You’re in my heart and prayers, along with so many other families like yours.

  • Marc Headley

    I hope Joe gets to see his kids again some day. I know the feeling. 2005 was the same year my wife and I lost a bunch of family to Scientology.

    There could be some hope on the horizon…

    One night in Hollywood , the same night that there was Celebrity Center Gala happening, Danny Masterson was spotted in an local night club. When asked why he wasn’t at the Gala, he said, “Oh, that noise? I show up and have take some pictures taken and I am outta there! As far as anyone’s concerned, I was there all night.” He was pretty loaded by this time, so who knows if he even was a CC that night at all. Either way, he is no couch jumper.

    Danny’s been in Scientology his entire life. By now he should be OT XXXII. he actually been in scientology longer than Tom Cruise! Last I heard Danny was at the very bottom of the Bridge. He is just like most scientologists all around the world. He is pretending to be one of them so he does not lose his family and friends. Hell, when Dave Miscavige re-releases the entire Bridge in September, Danny will have to re-do all 6 courses he has done in the last 20 years anyway.

    If anyone wants any “proof”, one of Danny’s nicknames is “DJ Donkey Punch.” That is about the furthest thing a “dedicated” scilon would call themselves. Pretty sure the only scilons that even know what a “Donkey Punch” is would be David Miscavige and Tom Cruise.

    • MissCandle

      Marc, thanks for your comments and your current info and for being so open.

      Mark, thanks for enlightening me on the urban dictionary in your comments this morning regarding Tony’s earlier post. I had to look up donkey punch. Yes, I’m old and/or naive, but that term grosses me out. Who would call himself that???

      • Spackle Motion

        I believe this is a running joke with Marc. I recall seeing a post by him on one of the message boards where he mentioned donkey punch in relation to Tom Cruise and David Miscavige. I can’t find it at the moment, but I believe I’ve seen it somewhere.

        • MissCandle

          OK thanks.

        • Robert Eckert

          It was also a running joke with Danny Masterson for several years, but according to my Googlefu when he DJ’s nowadays he has stopped calling himself DJ Donkey Punch and now prefers DJ Mom Jeans. Read into that what you will.

  • Sherbet

    Well, I’m a television ignoramus, because I don’t know who the Mastersons are at all. But I do feel sorry for Connor Cruise, who will be like most rich kids — too many perks and unearned advantages. Other wealthy kids may attend good schools and college, but Connor and his sister received no such well-rounded education. It all adds up to young adults who don’t have the capability to exist in the real world without the family free ride.

  • DeElizabethan

    I liked how Geir Isene explained how and why they lie.

    • aquaclara

      I like this, too. Just finished watching this latest video from Karen and AGP, and am stunned that Geir could explain this so well. Would love to see this in a courtroom!

      • http://isene.me/ Geir Isene

        Me too.

        • aquaclara

          You’re funny! Truly, this was a great interview. Hope you are enjoying this part of your new life…

          • http://isene.me/ Geir Isene

            I am. Very much so. Life has never been this good. It’s a freakin’ joyride.

            • aquaclara

              This is your time-and it is richly deserved.

  • EnthralledObserver

    Nicole Kidman… comments? (If only she would)

    • pronoia

      She won’t. Unless both her kids public ally disavow scientology. And considering who their father is, that is not likely to happen unless he blows. And that is really unlikely to happen unless the DM crashes and burns spectacularly.

  • SP ‘Onage

    Oh man, heeeere we go again. Now they want to control the internet. Why don’t they go save Egypt or touch assist Al-Qaeda and make them stop terrorism or feed the poor?

    And how come their “Clears” didn’t forewarn the Buddhist monks that they were going to be bombed at the Buddha Gaya Mahabodhi temple? You know why? Because there is no such thing as a homo novis or a Clear.

  • bradleyg

    I hope this embarrasses old pie-face DM.

  • EnthralledObserver

    Gotta love the Cruise burn! Joe is a Bulldog in that pic… wonder if my cockroach hubby knows him. I only know the Broncos and Qld Origin players.

  • Mark

    If Co$ actually adopted Geir’s suggestion that they stop lying and fact-check, wouldn’t they somehow be transmogrified into ‘New Yorker’ magazine? Yeah, like that’s going to happen before Hell freezes over…

    Maybe Miscavige’s secret wish-dream is to be Harold Ross, to judge by the elaborate but dire parody of the ‘New Yorker’ the Co$ has online, presumably at his behest?

    • http://isene.me/ Geir Isene

      As a side note; Hell is in Norway, and it has frozen over. Several times. At least once every year.

      • Mrs Libnish

        Hey! I’m Norwegian. My grandpa always told me that hell was Sweden. Hahahahaha!

  • Harlequin

    Just a clarification if it was missed. Joe played Rugby League . It may seem insignificant to most, but to us Aussies, there’s a big difference between “Rugby”(Union) and Rugby League

  • Mrs Libnish

    I love every one of those videos. I especially appreciate how a comment is made and then an applicable dox (vid) is then shown to reinforce the validity of said comment. On this one however, I ESPECIALLY love the music track inserted at the end. Who might that be?

  • osofine

    I am wholeheartedly against $cientology and understand and agree with Reaiche’s concerns about his daughter, but if you are estranged from your daughter the last thing that’s going to help is to publicly denounce her love life. Take $cientology out of it, and how different is this situation from Jon Voight shooting his mouth off about Angelina Jolie? I hope that his children are able to break free the Co$ and reconnect (as it were) with him. However I worry that this statement will just make things worse. It’s one thing to privately tell your adult child that you have concerns about someone she is seeing (and has this “relationship” even gone farther than having lunch?!) but you don’t gossip about it. I understand where he’s coming from, but he may look back on this and realize he put his foot in his mouth. :(

  • tentantoes

    Smart man….that the cult started by a FAILED SCIENCE FICTION writer has lured in so
    many is mind blowing. I live in FL….they built a headquarters here for I think in the s450 MILLION
    range.He needs to meet with Lisa Remini and perhaps Nicole K. will finally come out about that
    tax-exempt status CULT.

  • Shari M

    I was first introduced to Scientology when I worked as live-in nanny the summer of 1984 for Pete and Carol Masterson, and their 8 year old son, Danny and 4 year old son, Chris. I took Danny to his first audit session at the Church of Scientology in New York City in August 1984. It was an interesting experience for me. I remember expressing concern with Scientology after having visited the center and engaging in discussions with some staff while Danny was at his audit session. However, my “concerns” and “religious intolerance” in a country of “religious freedom” were not warmly received to say the least. I soon left for the summer and the whole experience was relegated to the past. I didn’t remain in contact but have recently thought about the Masterson family, as I enjoyed the summer living on Long Island with them although I got very home sick by the end of the summer. I actually was searching the internet tonight to see if I could find any information on Pete or Carol, when I came across this article posted by Carol’s 2nd husband, Joe, whom I may have even met that summer. I do remember Danny and Chris fondly, and I am quite sure that they are now wonderful, well-adjusted young men with much yet to offer to the world. I know that Pete and Carol were great parents, they really loved their kids and were so proud of all their accomplishments. I hope Pete has been able to maintain a healthy relationship with his sons. It is sad to hear of family separation, so I hope that Joe will also be able to establish a healthy, long-term relationship with his son and daughter. I would love to hear from the Masterson family, but most important, I will always hope for religious freedom, and for all religions to keep their promises to their people for healthy, happy and loving relationships with their friends, family and their God.

    After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr.Brave and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: bravespellcaster@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.
