Narconon’s cancer spreads: New lawsuits and a court order for Scientology’s rehab network

Narconon Arrowhead

Narconon Arrowhead

Yesterday, we brought you news of an explosive new lawsuit which alleges that Oklahoma state mental health officials covered up wrongdoing at Scientology’s flagship drug rehab facility in Oklahoma, Narconon Arrowhead. That news came out against the backdrop that a grand jury is considering claims of insurance fraud at the facility, leaked documents suggest the center is suffering badly with few patients, and there’s also news that Arrowhead has applied for a new certification as a “halfway house” as it gives up its status as a major treatment center.

Today, we have even more bad news for Scientology’s rehab network. Three new breach of contract and fraud lawsuits, filed by an Indianapolis law firm, are targeting a Narconon facility in Albion, Michigan and seem obviously patterned after the 19 lawsuits that have been filed against Narconon centers since January by Las Vegas attorney Ryan Hamilton.

Legal experts had told us that other attorneys might get into the act if Hamilton continued to have success with his lawsuits. And speaking of Hamilton’s success, today we have a court order in one of Hamilton’s suits which bodes ill for Narconon’s prospects of having the suits dismissed.

Narconon, it seems plain, is now in serious trouble.

Let’s start with the new lawsuits. They’ve been filed by attorney David E. Miller of the Saeed & Little firm in Indianapolis. For those of you familiar with Ryan Hamilton’s lawsuits, with their references to testimony by Narconon Georgia’s expert and their focus on deception in Narconon’s business practices, you’ll see that Miller has closely studied Hamilton’s model. But Miller also provides lots of details about conditions at Narconon Freedom Center in Albion, Michigan, which are apparently grim.

Samantha Nord-Shafer, a Delaware resident, and her mother, Rebecca Kennedy, are the plaintiffs in the first lawsuit we’ll look at. Samantha went to Narconon Freedom Center in Michigan, but Miller has filed the case in federal court in California because that’s the location of Narconon International and its Scientology umbrella group, the Association for Better Living and Education (ABLE). Samantha and her mother were told Narconon’s success rate was an astounding 99 percent, and they paid $19,900 for her treatment — which lasted six months. The suit describes deplorable conditions at the facility, with sewage backing up into the women’s showers, and improperly cooked food. Like so many others, Samantha learned that Narconon promised drug counseling but actually delivered Scientology training. She had been assured, and Narconon’s website says, that Narconon is a secular program.

But Miller has been watching Hamilton’s lawsuits, and he refers to a recent pleading in which Narconon’s own attorneys referred to it as a “faith-based program.”

Busted.

The second lawsuit against Narconon Freedom Center was brought by Candice Tyler and John Debay of Michigan. The suit details Tyler’s nightmarish experiences in Narconon’s sauna program, but despite her severe reaction to it, she was told that she had to continue it or she would be turned over to law enforcement. Tyler claims that she continues to have physical problems more than a year after enduring the Narconon program.

In the third lawsuit, Darrell Lovett of Indiana completed a couple of stints at Narconon Freedom Center and each time was then hired as a member of its staff, which is common in the Narconon network. Lovett contends that the use of extreme doses of Niacin in Narconon’s sauna program left him with lasting liver damage.

We’ll be interested to see if David Miller files additional lawsuits in other states, as Hamilton has.

As for Hamilton himself, he’s won another victory, and this one could have far-reaching implications. Since January, he’s filed 19 lawsuits against Narconon facilities in California, Nevada, and Colorado. All but one of the suits were filed in federal court, and each of them names as defendants a local facility as well as Narconon International and Scientology’s umbrella group ABLE. (We had previously reported that International and ABLE have already thrown in the towel on seven of the lawsuits, settling them even though the local facilities have not.)

Hamilton is now dealing with a flurry of motions to dismiss, most of which contain the same general arguments. And now, a judge has weighed in.

In the Geanacopulos lawsuit, Nevada federal Judge James C. Mahan has denied the motion to dismiss filed by International and ABLE, and it’s an across-the-board victory. The defendants had argued that International and ABLE weren’t connected strongly enough to the rehab center in Nevada to be subject to the lawsuit, and that the plaintiff hadn’t properly stated a claim upon which relief could be granted. But Judge Mahan knocks down each of those arguments. He points out, for example that Hamilton had quoted from Narconon’s own internal guidebooks about the control that International exerts over the local facilities, and that International’s website directs visitors in the Nevada area to the facility there.

And so the Geanacopulos lawsuit can continue. But Mahan’s order is about much more than that. Our legal experts point out that after this, Hamilton can refer to an order by a sitting federal judge which knocks down the arguments that Narconon makes around the country. This judge’s order becomes a powerful document that Hamilton and other attorneys will now be able to use to show that their lawsuits are aimed properly.

 

Geanacopulos v. Narconon Order

 
And there’s more. We recently told you about one of Hamilton’s lawsuits in California, but we neglected to point out a rather stunning piece of evidence that he attached as an exhibit. In the Brown lawsuit, Hamilton included a photograph that we know you want to see.

The lawsuit is aimed at Scientology’s rehab center in San Diego County, the Narconon Fresh Start in Warner Springs. Narconon Fresh Start is run by a man named Larry Trahant. And on Trahant’s office wall, there’s a plaque that was awarded him by Scientology leader David Miscavige…

 
TrahanPlaque2

 
The plaque includes the following words…

Larry and his dynamic team at Narconon Fresh Start are hereby warmly thanked and highly commended for their dedication and hard work.

They give us tremendous back up in introducing LRH to the world and are saving lives on a daily basis.

There are thousands of beings who have taken their first steps on The Bridge, thanks to the compassion and efforts of this team.

In court, Scientology and Narconon do their best to pretend that they are separate operations with little to do with each other. On stage at the church’s annual events, however, Miscavige gives the opposite impression, making it plain that Narconon is a front group that is intended to spread Scientology and bring more people onto “The Bridge” of Scientology courses.

For an attorney like Ryan Hamilton trying to prove that in court, Trahant’s plaque couldn’t be better evidence.

    “Our success rate is based on that 99% of the time, we get your money.”

  • HillieOnTheBeach

    Notice that Trahan’s plaque/Miscavige’s commendation says not a word about helping addicts.

    • Dr_Orpheus

      Could that plaque be used as grounds to depose His Oiliness?

      • Espiando

        Highly doubtful. They would have to prove a material connection, and there’s the precedent in Texas with the mandamus ruling. He’d really have to be made a defendant in the suit, and Hambo would have to have some heavy-duty proof of direct connection. The plaque isn’t enough.

        • Dr_Orpheus

          To quote Bad Cop from the Lego Movie, “Darn, Darn, Darny Darn!”

      • http://www.tingleff.org/jensting/muslinger/ Jens TINGLEFF

        Well, narCONon Int and ABLE could send a patsy along to explain that DM has nothing to do with nothing, but there are one or two personal wittnesses to DM running everything…

        • Dr_Orpheus

          Ahh, but those witnesses haven’t been involved with the church for years, so their testimony is out of date. Besides, they are a bunch of serial puppy kickers.

    • rom661

      Thanks. Didn’t see the forest for the trees….

    • 3feetback-of-COS

      Yeah, but it has a sword and a white horse on it.

      • Douglas D. Douglas

        The only thing missing was three wolves howling at the moon…

    • Ciru

      It helps them onto the Bridge. What more could anyone want?

    • Zana

      Wuooahh… You’re right! Amazing.

  • RBE

    Narconon, it seems plain, is now in serious trouble.

    I will not be losing any sleep over this tonight.

    • Missionary Kid

      I’ll be sleeping better.

  • Narapoid

    The bushes hiding Narconon/Scientology are being burned. Notes are being taken by talented attorneys and time delaying objections can be dealt quickly thanks to Judge Mahan.

    Spread the word: Federal court decisions are making it easier to take down Narconon/Scientology—especially to the candy asses in Oklahoma who fired Kim and Michael. Scientology isn’t the big bad courtroom monster it once was.

    Now it is a fat courthouse pigeon with LOTS of CITABLE bad acts that can be turned into money. Y’all come get some!

  • NOLAGirl

    No time to read the documents right now, but if the Michigan center is the one run by Per Wickstrom…..BAHAHAHAHAHA!!….I told you it was coming you piece of trash, your days as a rehab profiteer are coming to an end Wickstrom.

    • Espiando

      Wickstrom owns the building that Freedom Center is located in, so, yeah.

      • NOLAGirl

        Good. We all have our “most hated” (excluding COB of course, he’s at the top of all hated lists) Wickstrom is mine. I’ve seen & met many scumbags in my lifetime, just seeing his photo sends up my slime radar.

        • Missionary Kid

          I believe he’s of Swedish descent, like I am, and that makes it even more galling to see his image or read his name for me. I hope personal bankruptcy comes soon for the asshole.

          • Espiando

            If he has to have something with the initials “pb” happen to him, let it be “public buggery”.

      • http://www.crackpots.us/ DamOTclese2

        At some point we much expect him to set his building on fire to collect the insurance.

    • VickiStubing

      I’m with ya: Can’t wait for him to get smacked down–he gives our whole state a black eye.

      • NOLAGirl

        I’ll have drinks ready for the day he goes down and I’ll save you a seat. ; )

    • Robert Eckert

      Buddy of mine is a veteran of the Narconon when it was in Battle Creek, also hates Per with a passion. I will see him this evening and relay the news that Per has been Served.

      • NOLAGirl

        Please pass along my best wishes to him and let him know I’m glad he is free of that place. Per is going down, and anything I can do to help that along I promise to do. :)

    Godspeed, Dembo.

    Remember the first time you played Space Invaders… things appeared easy in the beginning, you seemed to have a semblance of control….then you got further down the screen and things started speeding up and more and more missiles came down? This is how I see Narconon trying to defend itself against Ryan’s mothership of awesome destruction which seems to be doubling up with new allies whilst tiny fists is continually having to switch to his left hand whilst the joystick is being being smeared with Vaseline. (Enough metaphors, ed).

    • Espiando

      I’d prefer to think of the phrase “joystick being smeared with Vaseline” in a different, more pleasant context. Although the other context does involve invading certain spaces…

      • http://scientologybollocks.blogspot.co.uk/ media_lush

        I put the phrase into google image search and was surprised that no nsfw images popped up…. what was a little more disturbing though was that the only two celebs that came up were Steven Seagal and Michael Douglas

    • Ardent

      That’s a great image.

  • Espiando

    I’m just happy right now for the team at Tipping Point. They knew before most of us did that Narconon is the soft underbelly of the Sciento-beast, and all it took was a terrific bunch of Sharks With Frickin’ Laser Beams (and one extremely pissed-off certification body) to pull the sword out of the scabbard and strike. Judge Mahan has delivered one swift, hard kick to the nads of the whole corporate lie and pulled open the curtain. And now Per Wickstrom, the slimiest piece of shit in the whole Narconon saga, is under direct assault.

    It’s going to be a good day, I think.

    • Elar Aitch

      hear, hear

      Seconded – years of hard work and perseverance. I’m pretty darned sure they can start patting themselves on the back :-)

  • BosonStark

    About that plaque, uh-oh.

    Mr. Miscabitch may have presented it but he has no knowingness as to what was written on it. If he did approve it, he was probably asked on his Scotch Night, so it doesn’t count. The bad apple who wrote that is now in religious arbitration pending declaration of being suppressive. Obviously, The Bridge in question here is not the Scientology Bridge to Total Freedom, but the Narconon Bridge to total 76% drug-freeness, with medical counseling from fully fake-certified Narconon counselors, who are fully trained in Dr. Hubtard’s ashtray commands and maneuvers.

    • NOLAGirl

      “the Narconon Bridge to total 76% drug-freeness”

      Bahahaha!! Coffee everywhere.

    • villagedianne

      Miscavige is blameless. The horrible SP who is really responsible for this plaque is doing a long stint in the RPF. Or maybe The Hole.

      • rom661

        Him. OT8 is out of the closet, so to speak.

    • http://www.tingleff.org/jensting/muslinger/ Jens TINGLEFF

      Plead insanity when the video of him praising narCONon at events of the criminal organisation known as the “church” of $cientology surface? Why not. Not very likely to work, but not as bad as some of his other strategies

  • Bob

    More than ever every clam is forced to do the purif. to be part of the religion. This is a religious requirement. So is the comm course. So any statements made that Narconon is secular are bogus.
    Is a drug center that requires you to study the bible and believe in Jesus secular?
    Narconon is going down. And none to soon. Arrowhead closing will send a message loud and clear to Dwindly McSewage that his days are numbered. He can’t hide that from his clam fields forever.

  • flexible

    Love the time and care taken on that plaque -nice big typo in the first line “I ask you for you loyalty..” Yo, Adrian.

  • mo-ron hubbard

    What is bad for Narconon is good for the world.

  • Still_On_Your_Side

    Twenty-two federal lawsuits against Narconon for personal injury and fraud; two more lawsuits filed by investigators who were fired for failing to hide their investigative results concerning Narconon violations of law; and a lawsuit against 82 Narconon defendants for trademark infringement and misrepresentation. When cases start piling up like this, three things happen. First, new plaintiffs bring new lawsuits using new lawyers. Second, information gets shared through the electronic dockets (and by the Underground Bunker). Accordingly, orders like the Geanacopulis ruling denying the motion to dismiss provides some excellent material for the other cases where Narconon Int’l and ABLE have argued lack of personal jurisdiction. Third, when there are dozens of lawsuits alleging fraud and harm to consumers, including false advertising, federal and state governments get involved, and their investigations often lead to criminal charges, (especially if there is also evidence of mail or insurance fraud).

    • Elar Aitch

      This beautiful post deserves its own backing track – as does Tony’s piece. A death knell might be appropriate.

    • aquaclara

      I particularly like hearing all those Scientology lawyers tripping over each other’s defenses. And their collective billing back to COB, the Captain of The Fail Ship.

      Since Miscabbage’s Minions are now quaking over the thought that they have to update the boss on today’s Tony report, I thought we might help out a bit.

      HEY, DAVEY, WAKE UP. IT’S WEDNESDAY, AND YOU’RE GONNA NEED MORE LAWYERS. AGAIN.

      • http://umbraxenu.no-ip.biz/mediawiki/index.php/Main_Page RMycroft

        Terrible Tuesday? Worse Wednesday? Just wait…

        • Mary_McConnell

          Haha!

    • L. C. Spencer

      And fourth, that kind of fallout leads to yet another new avalanche of guaranteed entheta media coverage.

  • mo-ron hubbard

    Maybe it will be Hubbard’s stupid niacin idea that will bring this whole thing down.

    • Espiando

      That’s one finding that I’m hoping the court makes. Then I’m going to shove it into the face of every Indie out there who still says the Purif is wonderful.

      • Sherbet

        They won’t believe otherwise, Espi. You know indies and still-ins have a hard time letting go of their cozy traditions and truisms, even when presented with documents, facts, and notarized statements.

        • Espiando

          I don’t care if they agree with me or not. I just want something to shove in their face. After the adventures with Theo and that other Indie bitch in Marty’s last comment section, I’m in a foul mood when it comes to the non-affiliated Kool-Aid Drinkers. Especially after Theo tried to ad-hom and Dead Agent me.

          • Sherbet

            More power to you, Espi. Only a fool would choose to debate scientology with you.

            • Ardent

              You’re quite right Sherbet. Taking on Espi is an asinine proposition. He’ll getcha. Bless his heart.

            • Sherbet

              Tangling with Espiando?

    • NOLAGirl

      Once it’s brought out in court, and a doctor confirms the damage high doses can do, that just may happen. I’d love to hear a judge (and state oversight agencies for that matter) say “You can’t charge people for liver damage and call it rehab.”

      • L. C. Spencer

        We Bunkeroos ought to chip in and get Ryan a big fat bronze plaque engraved:

        “You Can’t Charge People For Liver Damage And Call It Rehab”

        He’s already earned it.

      • Joe Hurtado

        “You can’t charge people for liver damage and call it rehab.” This is a delicious line! I think I’d rather hear it coming from Hamilton in a summation so he can have a Johnny Cochran moment. At least within a small community.

      • Missionary Kid

        I agree with Joe Hurtado and L.C. Spencer. That “You can’t charge people for liver damage and call it rehab.” belongs on the list of THINGS SAID ABOUT $CIENTOLOGY & DIANETICS http://tonyortega.org/2014/06/12/more-proof-of-kerri-kasems-scientology-involvement-and-laura-prepon-lies-like-a-rug/#comment-1439059448

        • NOLAGirl

          Thanks MK. :)

    • Ardent

      I wondered about that myself.

  • http://umbraxenu.no-ip.biz/mediawiki/index.php/Main_Page RMycroft

    Hopefully, due to the combination of intense legal pressure, high blood pressure, temper, alcohol and acid indigestion, David Miscavige is now rolling coal .. in his pants.

    • Baby

      Yep and will have experience when he’s shoveling coal in hell!

    • Espiando

      I’m hoping for “fatal cerebral aneurysm” myself. He’s not too young for it. Espi-Grandpa died of said cause at 44.

      • Minion Gayle

        I have to admit, part of me is hoping for something along those lines as well, Although, most of me would like a long, uncomfortable prison stay.

        • MaxSpaceman

          Prison! yes- much more preferable than death. 30 year prison term would fit lil’ 5.1 just fine.

          • KingofSweden

            Yes, his life should end in prison.

      • Missionary Kid

        I disagree. I’d rather it be a slow, painful death, highly visible to the Kool Aid drinkers so they can’t deny that he pulled it in.

    • kemist

      Hope the asshole gets cancer of the oesophagus from chronic GERD.

      Then he can get the same treatment he gave sick old SO members : being offloaded to die alone and in poverty.

    Tony.. Thank you! Reading these LawSuits.. IS truly the Bunker Way to Happiness!

  • chuckbeattyexseaorg75to03

    Oh this seems so solvable, to me, an old Flag Admin Course Sup who trained a dozen or so PR trainees, including two of the Narconon people, Mike St Amond and the lady whose name I forgot.

    Scientology has to do a retreat, widely, put all of Narconon on hold, just refund EVERYONE who requests it, dip into reserves accts that have been the ones that obtained all these fees that the patients’ money went into, just pay it back out, using KSW #1 ref, “…let them quit fast..” as senior policy overriding all of Hubbard’s other policies that SLOW down the quitting (refunding is extreme quitting!).

    Scientology needs some brains to take apart this mess they’ve created, I lament as a former Flag Admin sup who trained untold people to think through this Hubbard mess, that they cannot think through this mess at this time, the group fads to desperately NEVER refund, it over.

    Scientology’s lost, they need to retread majorly on Narconon, just pull out of all countries where they are basically doing Scientology, named as Naronon, and refund there also, via all their money channels they’ve stashed those fees they accumulated in those countries also!

    Scientology needs to retreat all the way to using the Purif within their “church” walls, only, and per all laws in every country.

    This is beyond the abilities of those left standing at the “top”, in so many ways.

    Scientology inner top management is just one person making all the decisions, and he isn’t up to this task, nor are the others at the Int Base who should do a major dismantling of Narconon.

    Hubbard’s words, the inspirational one’s about Scientology being a personal philosophy, needs to be applied to dismantle Narconon internally, as the policy to base dismantling it’s illegal overextended reach.

    How to dismantle and unravel Scientology’s reach into society, is being done for them, painfully, and I think Scientology ought to just realize this, and back way back to being their subject, and stop their whole “SOCO” (social coordination, old Guardian’s Office wing of public activity) today, it’s “ABLE” today, just put that whole wing on hold, just dismantle it, make any public activity purely personal, by Scientologists themselves, based on their own personal efforts and mistakes and suffer individually at the local level, the rejection that society is right now pushing back on Scientology for Scientology’s trying to push Narconon on the world! (Especially when Narconon is Scientology, so the world doesn’t want Scientology, so stop this whole Scientology wing called ABLE and Narconon being just the sub part of ABLE).

    The whole SOCO push has failed! Retreat, dismantle, let individual Scientologists be the ones on the hook for “saving the world”, stop this whole ABLE front group fantasy!

    You don’t see any Scientologists anywhere capable of defending intellectually their whole shebang, it’s undefensible.

    • Baby

      Oh shoot Chuck.. Just close the ” Chirches ” also ..

      • chuckbeattyexseaorg75to03

        One step at a time.

        • Baby

          OK.. I’ll be patient. We are on a great roll though..woo hoo.. thanks..xo baby

    • Ms. B. Haven

      Without shadowy front groups, I think it would be almost impossible to disseminate straight scientology. With the advent of the internet and the wacko celebrity endorsements, just the word scientology or dianetics brings up images of toxic sludge. Only a very few people will ever pass thru their doors without having first been snared by a front group. And that is a good thing. The next thing you know Int Management will be adopting a ‘Save The Whales’ campaign just to keep the doors open.

    • InTheNameOfXenu

      C’mon Chuck don’t give these Scilons any ideas. Let them fail 😉

    • http://www.tingleff.org/jensting/muslinger/ Jens TINGLEFF

      The insurance fraud is surely criminal and cannot be covered by refunds. The corporal dammage cannot be covered by refunds. And, most importantly, the responsibility for taking money for treatment while knowing that the treatment did nothing (and that the treatment had killed victims before) is surely criminal medical fraud and cannot be covered by mere refunds.

      It’s long overdue for the US to come to the realisation that France came to decades ago: narCONon leads to death. Making narCONon stop is quite simply a good thing and the least that the citizens can demand.

      • chuckbeattyexseaorg75to03

        yes, Scientology should pay out fairly to all who’ve been defrauded and damaged. Refund those “on lines” and close their doors.

    • Mark Foster

      ¨It´s nearly impossible for a crank subject to correct itself…¨ It is TOTALLY impossible, as the subject is based on lies and deceit and depends on said for its continued existence. KILL THE WOBBIT(Bugs Bunny reference)!

    • Mary_McConnell

      They need to shut these places down for good. They have no right to be in the business of ‘helping’ addicts. We whittle them away with lawsuits. Been going on for 7 years now and it’s snowballing. People have died or become ill and enough is enough! Latest death in Italy yesterday…An addict needed medical detox withdrawal but got Narconon withdrawal…terrible choice. Young man freaked out while at in withdrawal, staff finally tried getting him to a hospital but while there and on way to ER, he ran away and jumped out the hospital fire escape window with Narconon staff chasing after him.Here is the article “Tragedy in lane | 22 year old Neapolitan escapes to the doctors and is thrown from hospital window” A Narconon-related death in Italy and a google translation of the article. http://forum.reachingforthetippingpoint.net/index.php/topic,402.msg34571.html#msg34571

      • TickTockDM

        The Google translation of the article’s title is defective. It should read “Tragedy in a hospital ward”, not “Tragedy in lane”.

        • Mary_McConnell

          Yes, you are right… here is a fully corrected translation of the title, thanks to mlqn on ESMB “Tragedy in a hospital – 22-year old Neapolitan man flees from a hospital and throws himself out of a window”

    2014: the year of the breakdown of Narconon.

  • Sibs

    Excellent news yesterday and today! Even if Darth Midget decides to dissolve Narconon as a result of the lawsuits and try again under a different name, the right people are on to this scam.

  • John P.

    Today’s news shows the cult’s main weakness. As a computer scientist would say, the cult is not scalable. I’ve said for a while that “admin tech,” turbocharged to a new level of incompetence by the white-knuckle hands-on management style of David Miscavige, means that the cult can’t handle too many crises at once. In the past, this was not a big deal because the lawyers bringing suits against Scientology were each probing and feeling their way in the dark, and lacked the experience and background to rebut falsified evidence. Plaintiffs didn’t know where the bodies were buried, and didn’t for the most part know when Scientology was lying.

    But here’s another example where Hubbard’s claim of having lived trillions of lives on countless different planets and being the first to have recall of all that “whole track” is so patently ridiculous: he never anticipated some sort of global information-sharing environment like the Internet. Surely, at least one civilization he lived through over the last eleventy zillion years would have had to have come up with something similar.

    The upshot of today’s news is that it provides evidence of what I and many others suspected would happen: the Internet is empowering lawyers to form an informal “cottage industry” on how to sue Scientology. Especially because this here forum provides a central launching pad to help direct lawyers’ research, it’s now possible for an aspiring lawyer to see what people have already done successfully. More importantly, it’s now easy for people to see quickly what the cult’s likely responses are. There was a huge industry around asbestos litigation, but that was expensive to join — you had to take lots of classes to learn how to sue companies. But with the Internet as the primary teaching tool, the cost to become an anti-Scientology attorney is extremely low. And each success will build on success. In other words, this is just the beginning of a nightmare without end for Miscavige and his legal team.

    As the number of lawsuits proliferates, there’s not enough Miscavige to go around. He can’t micro-manage everything the way he loves to do. Outside counsel increasingly must work independently, and when that happens, they’re more likely to be predictable in their actions. And if plaintiffs’ lawyers have done a good job on research, there’s not much that the cult’s lawyers can do. When you become predictable, you are as good as dead in this game.

    By the way, it’s utterly brilliant that Hamilton found the picture of the plaque honoring the head of the Warner Springs operation for minting so many new Scientologists. I can hardly wait until someone figures out how to enter into evidence all those videos of David Miscavige talking at various events about how many people are being introduced to Scientology by Narconon.

    Yes, today is a really good day…

    • MissCandle

      I agree with you, John, and also believe that their continued predictability is predictable because they have to comply with The Source.

      • InTheNameOfXenu

        You’re right. They can’t change or adapt to new threats so they rely on Hubbard’s terrible admin policies and predictable legal tricks.

        ‘Source’ is their demise.

    • InTheNameOfXenu

      Miscavige has aged 15 years in the last 2. This is an neverending nightmare for him that will know no end. He looked terrible in the last event….so emaciated. I imagine he’s drinking more heavily and smoking like a chimney these days.

      It took decades, but we are finally seeing the end product of all the harm Hubbard and his $cientology has done to the world being directed back onto them.

      Karma is a bitch and she’s back in heat.

      • rom661

        “Miscavige has aged 15 years in the last 2”.

      “Minting” new Scientologists. Isn’t that the truth!

      Many of us have felt for years that the day would come when it would all start to fall apart. We just didn’t know how it would happen. Enter Ryan Hamilton. I have to hand it to him. He’s turning into a “Bhopal Coale” isn’t he. Delicious.

      • Anonymous

        For those that may have missed the reference, Bhopal Coale is John P. Coale, husband of Scientologist Greta Van Susteren (who is also an attorney.)

        Coale was among those attorneys who represented victims of the Bhopal, India Union Carbide gas leak, one of the worst industrial accidents in history. Coale was also involved in landmark litigation against the tobacco industry. It was announced early last year that he is undergoing treatment for cancer.

    • Missionary Kid

      Admin tech is flawed from the beginning. To scale it just makes its flaws more apparent.

      Co$ is hoisted on its own petard by its own words.

    • Gerard Plourde

      “As the number of lawsuits proliferates, there’s not enough Miscavige to go around. He can’t micro-manage everything the way he loves to do.

      Another point to remember is that lawyers hate unpredictability. It’s why there are hypotheticals about pregnant octogenarians in Trusts and Estates classes in law school. Accordingly, lawyers, even litigators, hate the unpredictability that trial affords and push for settlement before trial. If told by their client to fight to the end they will bill accordingly and further deplete Miscavige’s pile of cash.

      • John P.

        Thanks for contributing the perspective of a real lawyer (I’m just a member of the Internet Armchair Barratry League). You raise an interesting point: that as the number of relatively similar suits proliferates, the decision to fight one or more of the cases tooth-and-nail all the way through potential appeals introduces uncertainty into the process. Far better just to settle and write a check and not introduce risk of a verdict that is potentially precedent-setting, with lots more evidence out there that other litigants can use. But of course, when Narconon becomes an easy cash register for the tort bar to ring, they end up bleeding money profusely as ever greater numbers of attorneys join the party.

        So the choice becomes either a) fight every inch of the way, which is really expensive and risks disastrously huge judgments or b) write checks quickly which invites massive numbers of simpler lawsuits. Ah, the fun of watching Miscavige impaled on the horns of a dilemma.

        • Gerard Plourde

          Also, as the outflow of cash in settlement increases does this impel Miscavige to increase his reliance on Narconon dollars and further raise his risk? (I suspect, because it’s related to the healthcare industry, that it’s the real cash cow in the cult’s portfolio.)

          • Espiando

            At the normal rates, G, one hundred Narconon patients equals one Bart Simpson “match game” donation. This is something that Rinder remarked on a few days ago: they should be making more money from investments and currency trading than from donations, but they don’t, because they still have to obey Admin Tech and the financial advice given by a man who took Dianetics into bankruptcy.

          • John P.

            Gerard, I have estimated that the total net income coming in from ABLE is only about $10 million to $15 million per year. There are real expenses for Narconon and the other ABLE entities, all of which are in far worse shape than Narconon. That’s not enough to overcome the dwindling course-related income at the cult, but it has been a very nice cushion.

            I strongly suspect that they were seeing Narconon as an expansion opportunity given the decline in core cult membership over the last 10 years, particularly the last 5. That was probably driven mostly by expectations that they’d be able to bill insurance increasingly, but the insurance fraud evidence now surfacing is going to choke off that avenue for expansion… no sane insurer is going to reimburse anything for Scientology in the wake of Georgia and the NAFC fraud suit. They are undoubtedly working behind the scenes to identify all Narconon-related entities and share that information amongst themselves, so it’s doubtful that changing the name like Per Wickstrom and others are doing will enable them to keep billing insurance. They may gull the public with the name changes, but insurers won’t be fooled.

            So I’d argue that the financials are not the core issue with Narconon — it is the loss of the only recruiting tool they have which will rankle Miscavige the most. Yes, losing about 10% to 15% of revenue in the ABLE royalty stream will hurt but it’s the bodies that matter most.

            • Jgg2012

              Actually, I think they are relying on fewer and fewer whales (Feshbachs, Duggans, celebrities like Travolta) and, at some point, even they will start asking “is Scientology really booming?”

            • http://www.crackpots.us/ DamOTclese2

              The crooks have been pushing their NarCONon frauds heavily for the past 10 years now, seeing that they’re not getting any customers for any of their other frauds it looks like the crooks held out hopes that they could swindle money using their NarCONon frauds some how, yeah.

              It worked for a while, $10 to $15 million stolen from marks a year is good money, if they can keep it.

            • J. Swift

              John P., based on their 990’s, my low end estimate for Narconon’s yearly
              income is >$100,000,000. To put it another way, one billion dollars
              in cash over ten years sent uplines to the Church of Scientology
              International helps pay the legal bills.

              2012 990’s of the major Narconon locations are here: http://scientologymoneyproject.com/2014/05/19/narconon-990-ts

            • John P.

              J., I think it is important to clarify whether the $100,000,000 is annual revenue rather than the royalty portion sent uplines. I recall from a dive through a number of 990s a year or so ago that Watsonville took in about $3 million to $4 million in revenue, and only about 10% to 15% of that looked like expense buckets to send “uplines.” I concur that Narconon gross revenue is about $100 million. I thus concluded that direct royalty payments are about $15 million based on what I recall from their 990s.

              I suspect that a large portion of the salaries paid to top management goes back to the cult in terms of donations through IAS contributions and other channels. Those contributions should be accounted for under the lines of business that collect them. They should not be double-counted as both Narcon-related royalties and IAS donations, say.

              What’s interesting is that the Narconon contribution is now asymmetric in its risk versus reward. Every dollar they reap in Narconon-generated royalties through ABLE for the first time has a sizable risk of becoming part of a large legal settlement. I can see the day coming that $1 million in royalties could have a sizable risk of going back out the door in the form of $1.5 million or $2 million in legal settlements.

            • J. Swift

              JP, excellent points. Without seeing the licensing agreements the exact amounts sent uplines are open to question. Moreover, I just can’t see Church allowing Narconon to stockpile cash the way the Church does.

              Surely the Church surely has some way to extract as much cash as possible from Narconon in order to fund its vital Obelisk building program and other urgently needed programs to educate entire populations.

              Can you please review Narconon Arrowhead 2012 and comment? Part IX, Line 7 is of interest in terms as the amount exceeds the salaries stated in Part VI.

              I invite others to analyze as well. The stated salaries are far below the number claimed for “salaries and other expenses.” Narconon Arrowhead is showing a loss for 2012.

              http://www.scribd.com/doc/224938721/Narconon-Arrowhead-Oklahoma-990-2-12-Gross-receipts-12-602-608

            • Free Minds, Free Hearts

              J Swift – That is very odd – and by the way it is Part VII, not Part VI that has the salaries of the key and highly compensated employees, total less than $500,000 if my math is right. But it doesn’t match Part IX Line 5 which is $196,000 for key and highly compensated employees. And as you point out, that is way less than Part IX line 7 which lists total salaries as $4.2 M. They might have other paid staff – but it would have to be a lot of staff, for example 110 additional employees each making $35,000 (total $3.8 M) to make up the difference. It seems unlikely they have that many staff but perhaps they do. Their payroll taxes are about 10% of their total salaries/wages.

        • Mooser

          Also, if they keep Narconon running, it will generate more suits. If they close it down, besides admitting failure, it won’t make the present suits go away.

        • Anonymous

          I suspect what will be attempted is a form of bankruptcy, followed by a gigantic fraudulent conveyance battle once it is discovered that the assets have been stripped out of Narconon.

          That bankruptcy battle will overshadow and delay the resolution of the other suits, making resolution much harder.

          This would follow the Scientology pattern from the 80’s but might also put the other entities IRS exemption at risk.

      • Jgg2012

        Once Hamilton wins a couple, its going to be very hard for Scientology to say “we don’t control the local Narconon.” Principles like collateral estoppel, judicial estoppel, impeaching witnesses, etc. will make it hard for Davey to defend his organization.

        • http://www.crackpots.us/ DamOTclese2

          He already got some of the Scientology criminal entities to admit wrong doing, now we need to get these criminals put in prison. :)

        • Gerard Plourde

          You’re right concerning any cases that go to trial and result in a judgment against the cult. That’s why the lawyers will be pushing Miscavige very hard to accept some form of settlement that satisfies the plaintiffs and can either include a provision that the terms be sealed or that includes language that the settlement does not imply culpability on the cult’s part. It will be interesting to see if Miscavige accepts this advice or forges on to potential disaster.

    • http://umbraxenu.no-ip.biz/mediawiki/index.php/Main_Page RMycroft

      I believe Larry Trahant is head of all Narconon Fresh Start, and not just their Narconon Warner Springs aka Sunshine Summit Lodge aka Narconon San Diego operation, so I think we’re going to see a lot more of that picture.

    • Toni m

      Could the endorsement by celebrities like tc, jt, ka, that can be find in articles and videos will help if put into evidence? After all they seemed very proud when they were saying that scientology clear the planet of drugs using Narconon. Narconon/scientology equal the same crap. Hey you tc is time to get out of there. Go and look for Mr Ortega, Mr bunker or Mr Wright any of them will be glad to give you so much exposure that dm will not be able to touch you. You may have millions of dollars but what about integrity.
      More important you may be able to get back the family you lost not long ago. You were/are brainwashed,
      hypnotized like thousands of people, snap of it, others did it, you can do it too.

      • John P.

        It’s fun to think about the idea of statements from all the celebrities being called into evidence, or even the (extremely unlikely) scenario of some of them being called as witnesses.

        However, the picture of a gaudy trophy on the office wall of the head of a Narconon business thanking them for recruiting so many people to Scientology will do far more damage to Narconon and Scientology than days of testimony from any combination of the brigade of useful idiots. That’s direct physical evidence that shatters the cult’s claim that Scientology has nothing to do with Narconon, and the assertion that Narconon is not religious in nature. And once that has been published on the Internet, any plaintiff is free to either introduce that in evidence, or to pursue a similar line of argument with evidence that they develop themselves.

        • Toni m

          O.k. then, let’s found us a gaudy trophy.

    It’s a faith based program. It’s not a faith based program. This is because Narconon’s faith-based status exists in a superposition of states. A conscious observer has to file a lawsuit to determine whether or not it was faith based at that particular time. And even then there’s a lot of uncertainty. The greater the velocity of the lawsuit, the harder it is to determine the faith based position of Narconon.

    We call this grand puzzle Quantum Scamchanics.

    • kemist

      So that’s a quantum state that collapses once in court ?

        It’s more that the waveform resolves so we can determine the exact nature of the crime they committed.

      So I can apply the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle? If I know the clam is speaking, I cannot know exactly what he is saying because he lies, but if I know exactly where he is then I cannot know if he is speaking or not, but it doesn’t matter because all he can say are lies, Oops, it cancels out into a basic law we already knew – How do we know if a clam is lying? Check to see if his lips are moving. Well, how about the wave-particle duality? If a clam is in a sealed box, there is no way to tell if he is lying or not until you open the box, at which point the sunlight shines in and we discover in all cases that the typical clam scammer cannot abide sunlight in any form. So the Schrodinger’s Clam is always dead. I could write a book about Quantum Scamology but it all decomposes to a single point, which explodes to create a new universe, all of which is a lie based on a lie intended to deceive.

A Core Supervisor would be required to visit the nearest Church of Scientology and must receive clearance from them before they were allowed to return to a NI facility. Core Supervisors from NFC were sent to the Church of Scientology in Battle Creek to receive their clearance to return to work at the facility.”

    What was that you Sciloons were saying about Narconon and Scientology being completely separate?

    • NOLAGirl

      I am also disturbed by the report in this complaint of “nurses” on site. I’d like to know what their qualifications are and if they are licensed nurses, how they stand by and watch people treated this way and are still able to look at themselves in the mirror.

      • joan nieman

        You are right Nola. If the nursing staff know anything about medicine and the healing process, they would never condone such treatment as high doses of Niacin and extreme endurance of humidity. They are ignorant in their so-called professions. They are incompetent to the max. How do they even get insurance coverage for a scam such as this?

    • http://www.crackpots.us/ DamOTclese2

      Amazing, isn’t it. These filthy god damned criminals want to pretend they’re everything and they’re nothing.

  • Espiando

    So, Thermidor ended and Fructidor began with the Fall Of The House Of Narconon. I told you, Davey, beware Thermidor. There is heat and Sharks With Frickin’ Laser Beams and leaks to Das Rinderblog and Marty severing any sort of loyalty he’s ever had to your fake religion.

    Beware. Thermidor. Do you speak English, motherfucker? Then why don’t you understand me, Five Foot One, Your Ass Is Done?

    • Missionary Kid

      Believe it or not, I didn’t have ” Five Foot One” on the list of DAVID, I am not insane, MI$CAVIGE NICKNAMES It’s now on it, but again, the list has been placed under “moderation,” so I’ll soon have a new place for it.

      • Techie

        MK, you are providing them a valuable service in that they no longer have to search the internet to find plausible nick-names for DM. All they have to do is enter your entire list into the search engine and Dave’s daily internet briefing pops up. Odd that they would flag you for that. Maybe the left hand knows not what the right hand is doing. The upper hand is shooting the lower hand in the foot while the good right hand is waving in the air trying to catch a cab to Target Two perhaps.

    • Sherbet

      I love your speechifying, Espi. You said it, brother.

  • Ivan Mapother

    I smell a rat. The going rate for a NARCANON scam is $30K-$35K. Someone in Michigan is undercutting the cult’s profit margins. Maybe there are tough economic conditions in Michigan that warrant aggressive pricing, but $19,900 puts no cheese on the macaroni. I will cover COB on this message and ethics will be put in on the guilty parties.

    • aquaclara

      And Lovett’s was at least $60,000 put through insurance….he doesn’t know the total amount Narconon put through. But I hear the sounds of insurance fraud flapping in the winds….

    • rom661

      Also notice the time frame that 19K covered.

  • Sherbet

    “But Mahan’s order is about much more than that. Our legal experts point out that after this, Hamilton can refer to an order by a sitting federal judge which knocks down the arguments that Narconon makes around the country. This judge’s order becomes a powerful document that Hamilton and other attorneys will now be able to use to show that their lawsuits are aimed properly.” Judge Mahan has issued a much-needed golden ticket.

    • Robert Eckert

      It is not, strictly speaking, binding on judges in any other jurisdiction, but it will be very persuasive, and any judge who does not want to write a long involved opinion about a parallel motion to dismiss can simply say “This court agrees with Judge Mahan’s sound reasoning, see [formal citation]”

      • Sherbet

        Or, in legal terms, “Shaddap, already!”

  • aquaclara

    Sending very best wishes to Samantha Nord-Shafer, Darrell Lovett and Candice Tyler. Good luck with your recoveries.

    What you were subject to was criminal. You deserved much better. I hope that others who are in need of treatment see from your stories and learn. You could be saving their life.

  • Juicer77

    Gangrene has set in from all those footbullets.

  • rom661

    I know these are battles being fought, not the war being won, but I do savor this kind of news, and Tony’s reporting of it, almost as much as I’m savoring the coffee from the beans I roasted last night.

    • Sherbet

      Every little bit helps raise the spirits.

  • aquaclara

    Hambo for the big win. This is excellent.
    And good luck with the flurry of motions and docs… 19 suits against the flurriest of them all would result in a gale wind of filings…

  • Sunny Sands

    I look forward to seeing the leaked video of the 30th anniversary IAS event later this year. Usually, there’s lots of crowing about Narconon in it. We’ll see if they tone it down or eliminate the bragging in view of the lawsuits. If Miscavige eliminates the Narconon remarks from his speech , the public will surely wonder why. Then when no explanations are forthcoming, as per standard operating procedure, it should plant further seeds of doubt.

    The IAS web page is taking reservations for the Patron’s Ball in 6 worldwide locations, but not giving the date or price. I believe this is tied into the IAS event.

    • cdub

      When the rivers of flowing praise for Narconon disappear people inside must take notice, especially those who’ve given abundantly.

    • Frank Lee

      You give far too much credit to the CO$ zombies who are taught never to think for themselves much less “wonder why”.

    • Dr_Orpheus

      What he could do is brag about how we have helped thousands of addicts without mentioning the name Narconon. The praise just needs to be edited somewhat for legal reasons. Most of the remaining faithful are probably too deep in the Kool Aid to notice the difference.

    • http://www.crackpots.us/ DamOTclese2

      More likely the crime boss will use the opportunity to disavow direct control of his NarCONon frauds and will fill his Nazi Speech with rhetoric about how “our distant partners” are eliminating drug addiction around the world, the insane criminal will know he’s being recorded by law enforcement and leakers, he’ll change his tune, count on it.

  • California

    And now Michigan has joined the three other states that are being challenged by excellent legal strategies against the fraudulent narconon “drug rehab” programs. Could Florida be next?

    From the Fall of 2002 to now the arrogance and viciousness of scn/dm/narconon in perpetuating this fraud (both in terms of “education” and “drug rehab”) has been evident with fair gaming and dead agenting by osa agents like Karen de Lise of San Rafael (please see Mike Rinder’s WUSA OSA list) directed to those trying (and sometimes succeeding) to stop the fraud. And yet good people persevered and the worse that scn/dm/osa behaved the more that the bad behavior served as “teachable moments” to people wondering what it was all about…… and the abundance of evidence, in court and in public media, is such that the demise of narconon “drug rehab/education” is near. And SAMHSA has not weighed in strongly (although working hard behind the scenes with states even recalcitrant ones like Oklahoma) and the NAFC suit against narconon for fraud continues… and this one is a biggie.

    Our work is almost finished.

    • Free Minds, Free Hearts

      Oh California I love your comment!

  • California

    With the school year starting, please be alert in your community for narconon “drug education” (or one of its derivatives like “Fresh Start” education) trying to get into public schools. And into private schools, although they fall under separate mandates from public schools.

    The California Department of Education finding against narconon “drug education” in California public and charter schools can be found here: http://www.cde.ca.gov/ls/he/at/narcononevaluation.asp. School boards, in both the public and private sectors across the world have found it enlightening and helpful in making their decision to ban narconon “drug education” from their schools.

    Please post here the names of the schools/districts/boards of education where you find narconon “drug education.”

    Happy hunting!

    • Once_Born

      Narconon UK’s only (official) activity is a ‘Drug Education’ programme which gives presentations in Schools that do not realise that it is a front group for the CofS.

      Incredibly this “charitable purpose” has enabled it to achieve charitable status (a trick that the CofS has never managed to carry off) and tax exemptions.

      It’s a strange situation that I have tried to describe here http://scicrit.wordpress.com/2014/08/20/narconon-in-the-uk-part-one/

      If anyone knows of UK Schools that have hosted a Narconon ‘presentation’ I would be fascinated to hear about it.

    • http://umbraxenu.no-ip.biz/mediawiki/index.php/Main_Page RMycroft

      They frequently call their program “Truth About Drugs” regardless if it’s Narconon, Scientology or Foundation for a Drug-Free World pushing it.

  • Techie

    Anybody have a copy of the Command Channels of Scientology? That little blue booklet from the 80s Miscavige power push? I vaguely remember it showing the “sectors” (WISE, ABLE, Missions, Groups, IHELP etc) flowing public to orgs and up the Bridge. If anyone had a question about the real purpose of Narconon that would help them “get” it. Narconon etc are just gateway drugs to the big S.

    • L. C. Spencer

      Here’s a PDF hosted by Dave Touretsky. Black and white scan, but still, legible. 5 pages, Is this the whole thing?

      https://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/Stop-Narconon/Documents/command-channels.pdf

      • MaxSpaceman

        all I get is blank pages, LC. Uhm, is it just me?

        • Sherbet

          Even when you read it, it’s nothing but blank pages, Max. 😉

      • Techie

        I get the PDF. It clearly shows Narconon as under ABLE on the command channels of Scientology, but does not speak of using Narconon as a source of new public. I remember a much more elaborate version with lots of color charts and diagrams. Maybe it was an event video I was thinking of. Certainly the idea put forward at events was that new public were to flow into orgs from missions, groups, field auditors and the sectors.

    • chukicita

      I remember seeing in person an internal document called Inroads to Scientology that was given to me by Bev Rice back in the late 90s. It had an illustration similar to the above only more Pink Floyd The Wall, showing bodies coming from Narconon and other fronts on some kind of airport motorized walkway into an org.

  • Jenny Blough

    It used to be that victims were worried because the Scam of Scientology has a lot of money but I guess lawyers see the upside: lots of settlements. And CSI and ABLE can cover Narconon’s liabilities.

  • ze moo

    Halleluiah, and please pass the popcorn. At last, action in the EUS continent, Per Wickstrom is now stuffing his suitcases with cash and ordering his plane ticket to the country that won’t extradite him or his suitcases. It is going to be so much fun to watch the NarCONon lawsuits spread everywhere.

    I’ll take bets on when Davy starts the fundraising for the ‘their picking on NarCONon and US’ campaign.

    • Espiando

      But he would have to admit that Narcofraud is in trouble in order to do that. There isn’t a hook here, like with the Religious Freedom Crusade. He can only play the “Ebil Psychs are trying to shut down the only drug program that works” card so many times before the donations dry up. He’s the Midget Who Cried Wolf, and the wolf’s about to eat his ass for brunch.

    The line in that plaque that sticks out to me is this:

    “They are team members who are always there for us when push comes to shove and who PLAY THE GAME and win.”

    Considering LRH’s focus on “word clearing” that statement clearly demonstrates the intent to deceive!

    • Sherbet

      Right. What is this “game” of which he speaks? Life? Scientology? Money making? Incidentally, there’s plenty of room on the plaque into which more cliches may be crammed.

      • aquaclara

        Had this plaque been a Sunday Funny, it would have filled 100 comments or more, without our even trying. It’s kind of hard to see whether the Captain or the Admiral spew up more useless phrases and bad grammar.

        I shall just park this one here. “Thank you for your many stellar qualities.”

        • Espiando

          The primary “stellar quality” that anyone who runs a Narconon has is the fact that they’re fiery balls of exploding gas.

          (With apologies to Luke Hatton, of course.)

              I corrected the misspelling in a fashion that acknowledged the misspelling (the polite way to do it). And I’ll have an enforced vacay when I have knee surgery in a couple of weeks.

        • Sherbet

          It’s a slippery slope, Robert. First, it’s “co-operation,” and next thing you know, you’re writing “to-day,” “to-morrow,” and reading Jane Austen.

          • Mark

    Attack Narconon for being Scientology training, and they respond by saying it’s secular care with all these statistics and certifications. Attack it for being scientifically void of merit (as it is) and they’ll say it’s faith-based. They are very clever at trying to have it both ways. I’m glad authorities are hitting them for the harmful deception they practice. It is entirely Scientology.

    • Sherbet

      I’m glad old blabbermouth lrh and his minions chose to document – repeatedly – the business connections their lawyers are now denying.

    • Ineedcaffeinenow

      It’s difficult to continue to talk out of both sides of your mouth when you are getting a royal fucking slapsgiving treat from Ryan Hamilton. Woo!

  • Elar Aitch

    It’s bad enough when the treatment is promoted by sales staff or former addicts with fake qualfications, but the tale from the Tyler/Debay lawsuit is particularly shocking ss it involves promotion of the purif process from an RN and ‘physician’:

    47. Plaintiff returned to NFC on or about February 14, 2014, to begin treatments again. Kyle Rector, the one registered nurse at the facility, and the visiting physician had a meeting with Plaintiff and Mr. Debay regarding her entering the sauna and Niacin program again. This meeting was done with NFC and the medical staff being fully aware of Plaintiff’s reactions to the treatments being known. The physician informed Plaintiff that if she didn’t restart the sauna program that she would not be able to complete the program and therefore NFC would have to report this to the court that requested her to complete a rehabilitation program. At this meeting the physician overseeing the facility repeatedly stated to Mr. Debay that “he knows the program works and that she must complete the sauna program.”

    • Once_Born

      I wondered how they might treat people whose treatment was court-ordered.
      I suppose it is no surprise that the patients welfare should take second place to ‘statistics’.

      • HillieOnTheBeach

        I read that also as a not-so-subtle threat. In the eyes of a judge, credibility and the benefit of the doubt would go Narconon’s way. A “student“ who no longer collaborates or puts up a fuss gets the court ordered alternative: likely jail.

    • Bleuler

      A person holding an M.D. cooperated with this? What on earth would be the reasoning behind that, the potential for loss of practicing license didn’t go through his head? To call the “advice” medically unsound is an understatement.

  • Mrs. V.

    And now that I’ve read two of the lawsuits, I am no longer giddy, I’m depressed. It is so hard for me to see how easy it is for these bastards to take advantage of people who are so vulnerable. And it’s even worse to see how someone is having such adverse reactions (coughing up blood, seriously?) and the “counselors” still adamantly claim that the “Ron’s Technology” (craptology?) is scientifically proven to work. In my opinion, this is just more evidence that Scientology is a cult. When you deny what is right in front of your face because of what some dead delusional piece of shit pulled out of his ass and wrote in a book, you are most definitely brain washed.

    • http://www.tingleff.org/jensting/muslinger/ Jens TINGLEFF

      Anyone who thinks that “what turns it on turns it off” needs to be kept away from positions where they have an input on the medical treatment on others. Which is why in France we do not have a narCONon problem. Pitty someone had to die to get us there :-(

      http://infinitecomplacency.blogspot.com/2013/04/ignoring-epilepsy-i_3446.html

      • Mrs. V.

        It is a shame that so many have had to die before any action at all has been taken here in the US. It’s also why the suit filed by The National Association of Forensic Counselors is so important. There are desperate people out there who are trusting “experts” who claim to be licensed drug counselors and medical professionals. Once they’re no longer able to claim that they are licensed, less people will fall for the trap. Well, one hopes anyway.

    Finally, that plaque is a good one. We’re so pleased that David Miscavige was pleased.

    Article in the Tulsa World re the NAFC lawsuit.

    My humble project of informing the public about the evils of Narconon continues. (I refer to the public that reads bulletin boards in coffee houses, garden centers, grocery stores and pet supply outlets) I must say- it has led to some interesting conversations. Some people confuse “Narcotics Anonymous” with “Narconon”. I just tell them “there’s no CON in “Narcotics Anonymous”. Here’s my updated business-card-size “poster”.

  • flyonthewall

    ummm….ok did anyone read the second lawsuit yet? The Narconon “counselor” picked the addict up at her house and she agreed to go to rehab only if he let her smoke crack on the way there, WHICH HE DID! But it gets better! The Narconon guy drover her to her dealer’s house so she could score first before going to rehab! WTF IS GOING HERE!!! ARE THESE PEOPLE ALL COMPLETELY INSANE!?

    “23.Plaintiff agreed to go drug rehab at NFC on the condition that she be allowed to smoke crack on the way to the facility. The intervention specialist agreed and Plaintiff’s dealer drove to her home so that she could get the drugs she planned to smoke on the way to NFC.
    24.After Plaintiff secured the drugs, the intervention specialist and her drove to NFC. Along the drive, Plaintiff did smoke crack as the intervention specialist knowingly allowed her to do. Upon arriving at NFC, Plaintiff agreed to throw out all of her remaining drugs and paraphernalia at the entrance of the facility. Then they proceeded to enter the facility and Plaintiff went through the standard intake.
    25.Upon the completion of the intake process, Plaintiff attempted to run from the facility to reclaim her drugs left at the front gate. At this point she was tackled and returned to the facility. ”

  • Ineedcaffeinenow

    This quote from the plaque: “They give us tremendous back up in introducing LRH to the world and are saving lives on a daily basis.” This speaks to the only reason for narconon’s existence is to push scientology on people. In this instance, using desperate families and people incapacitated by addiction.

    Excellent traction in these lawsuits. It’s so incredibly encouraging to see. Narconon gets federally fucked by its own documentation and policies! Go fuck yourself with exclamation points!!!!!!!!!

          I wasn’t necessarily talking about warfarin-based rat poison. There are others that are more effective and have no positive properties when ingested by humans.

          Source: Espi’s US Army training included four weeks on pest control (and gave him the ability to apply industrial-grade pesticides on military posts). Also, our pest control guy was here today, like he is every Wednesday.

            I wasn’t trying to be Mr Wizard. I was just suggesting that maybe Ron should take rat poison, and not just Warfarin.

            Now that I think about it I had about 6 life threatening DVT blood clots in the years following my neurosurgery. I was on Warfarin a few months, bu the bad part was that I had to inject myself with another anticoagulant before every plane flight or other situations with prolonged sitting. I got giant black bruises around th injection sites. So, dose away Ron.

This means that the judge can rule rather quickly on the request without having to wait for things to snake their way through a lengthy trial process or settlement. That’s a critical blow–immediately–if granted! Since NN had their own witness say that it is not effective, the judge has something to go on right away.

              I assume there has to be a hearing about that–but, we don’t have to wait to go through the entire process (all of the sideshow motions, etc.) for SOMETHING to happen. Plus, any discovery that might come of that hearing might be able to be used by Hamilton. There could be ripple effects of the restraining order as well–such as licensing and insurance, etc.

              Here’s hoping that something can be stopped on short order before others are hurt.

              Disclaimer–IANL, but I am just likening what was done in Monique’s case regarding a temporary restraining order.

        With no sense of perspective, and not seeing the lone male in the background, I thought this was a picture of the rare carnivorous prairie dog pack gobbling down on a bison.

        It would be just like Scientology to get eaten by squirrels.

    I can’t tell you how happy it makes me to see Scientology’s favorite weapon being so skillfully used against it. Hey Commodore Cuckoo and Slappy, you pulled this in!

    “There are thousands of beings who have taken their first steps on The Bridge, thanks to the compassion and efforts of this team.”
    Your honor, will you stipulate that the above statement would have required the approval of David Miscavige?

  • Jgg2012

    “Hamilton can refer to an order by a sitting federal judge which knocks down the arguments that Narconon makes around the country.” The Nevada judge’s decision is not binding on other judges, but it’s persuasive. At the very least, it will cause judges to say “how is this case different?” I see Hamilton’s suits being consolidated at some point, so all the Nevada cases are heard by one judge, California by another, etc. and these findings being applied to other cases. The only difference among the plaintiffs is their damages (i.e. they suffered different amounts of physical injury by being denied treatment).

    These lawsuits against the fraudulent and criminal activities of Narconon are developing in the right direction. The evidence contained on the plaque on Larry Trahant’s office wall (given to him by David Miscavige) is a perfect example.
    I have a message for David Miscavige (in his own words from the plaque, edited for punctuation):
    “When it really counts, we can always rely on you.”
    Thank you, David Miscavige!

      But can Larry Trahant rely on David Miscavige? Ha ha ha ha! Of course he can–this very moment Miscavige is arranging a bus with Trahant’s name on it.

      • Dr_Orpheus

        He’ll need another bus or three for those flunkies who awarded Trahant that award without informing their boss about it. Mr. Miscavige has never heard of Larry Trahant.

      • Barbara Angel

        Well said, mustravage has the morals and loyalty of an alley cat. Any bus will do, as he cannot be relied upon as far as he can spit. Yucky little man must be beginning to poop in his pants by now, not that this will stop him. Heads will roll and he’s scrabbling to make sure it’s not his. YET…………………….

  • ze moo

    Judge Mahon really slapped down the only reasons that ABLE and NarCONon INT have to avoid liability in the Geanacopulos suit. Hambo can probably expect another payout from ABLE and NarC Int to let them walk away. The leaves NarCONon Fresh Salad, I mean Start holding the bag and their insurance carrier is not going to be happy.

    Any insurance company selling liability coverage to any NarCONon is going to look long and hard at the fee structure and place the NarCs in the high risk group or drop coverage completely.

    • Free Minds, Free Hearts

      A couple of the insurance companies are already trying to get out of some of the lawsuits – I don’t have the cite but Tony wrote about it last year. If I were an insurance company, I would NOT like this risk and liability.

  • http://www.crackpots.us/ DamOTclese2

    This just got splashed over every NarCONon Twitter account and Facebook account I could find. It’s all very well and good to sue the criminals to force them to stop hurting people and defrauding people, yet there’s always something good to be said about working to demoralize the bastards as well.

    Posting the link to this article to every Scientology Twitter and Facebook account one can find is a good way to let a few Scientology customers know what’s going on, and if it makes them angry and upset, all the better.

      Scientology assholes are vandalizing the Wikipedia NarCONon page, removing information about homicides in Italy.

    • Free Minds, Free Hearts

      What a senseless tragedy. They sent untrained kids with him to take him to a psych ward because of course they have no medical professionals or counselors anywhere on site.

    ” He points out, for example that Hamilton had quoted from Narconon’s own internal guidebooks about the control that International exerts over the local facilities, and that International’s website directs visitors in the Nevada area to the facility there.”

    Behold the criminal mind, the IQ of the typical filthy criminal. Love it. Hoist by their own criminal petards.

    I have been reading this page for a while now although I have never commented… I have never been in Scientology so I rarely have much to add to the conversation. But dammit, I just love seeing all of these cases popping up! It is fantastic to see that people don’t fear the litigation anymore.

    Scientology is pretty much a non-factor where I live although I understand there is an org in DC that I have never seen. Most people around here only know that it is some weirdo religion that made Tom Cruise crazy. I try to fill in people as much as possible and always get the same blank stare and, “whaaa?” Although, maybe the Sci-guys are onto something. My cat likes to chase nothing a lot. Maybe it’s thetans? MAYBE HE IS JUST PROTECTING ME!

    Ok, back to work. Just felt like finally chiming in. :)

      Don’t know if it is true, but I read once that in Tibet cats were sometimes used to guard sacred places because the cats could see spirits.

      In your case, however, there is no doubt that your cat is at least OT VIII — and is stably exterior with full perceptics. Further, if your cat reacts to the name “Ron,” perhaps with a display of either guilt or arrogance, it is likely that your cat is actually L. Ron Hubbard himself — done with his work at Target II and back in the swing of things on Earth. Except for one small flub — being born as an animal instead of as a human. Back to cramming and retraining Ron. When you claimed to have made it through the Wall of Fire, someone far bigger than you heard “Fur” — and now you are a cat and you will have to get through that Wall of Fur — and all the fur balls that go with it, since cats ingesting fur and hacking it up is all just a tragic dramatization of Incident Meow when a crazy warlord feline, some 75 millions of years ago, choked every rebel cat to death by burying them in mile deep mats of fur, and then drenching the fur in catnip, before turning it all into a nuclear inferno!

        Hmmm… well let’s examine the evidence:
        1. He has a false sense of superiority
        2. He is a lazy, fat, tubby tubsters
        3. He tries to control my every move (when near his food bowl)
        4. He picks fights with the dogs and then plays the victim when attacked

        HOLY CRAP, YOU GUYS. MY CAT IS L. RON HUBBARD. He shall henceforth be titled L.Ron Tubsters.

    LOL…;-)…they didn`t get it…LOL..article is by Scientology Hamburg club (eingetragener Verein), don`t care about the word “church and e.V.” it just means “club”…published 2014-08-18 -yeah, it was on Monday…;-)…and it says ” Der United States DEA of Diversion Control Executive Assistant, Robert
    Hill, sprach von der großen Nachfrage wirksamer Drogenaufklärung, da
    gerade der Missbrauch von verschreibungspflichtigen Medikamenten in der
    Gesellschaft rasant angestiegen ist und der Zugang hierzu einfacher ist
    als je zuvor….”…just google…LOL…okay It`s just some kind of try to translate: there`s a big demand of effective drug education. Especially because abuse of prescripted drugs is raising in society and it`s easier than ever before to get access to them….well, it doesn`t say the demand of effective drug education by Narconon (!) or Scientology (!) is raising…;-)…LOL…http://www.presse-scientology-hamburg.de/ and some news from BBC: http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-tyne-26936135…sorry for the style of this posting but sorry, I`m writing while I laugh…;-)

    I’m opposed to dwarf tossing in some respects, however public dwarf buggering is something I’m totally in favor of. Love to see Scientology’s public relations and advertising frauds coming back to smack them in their dimwitted criminal faces. These idiots really have not learned anything about the Internet, not even what the consequences of their RMGROUP was back in 1995. They seem to think only their victims and the perpetrators will ever see the evidence of their crimes, that the Internet does not exist some how.
