On July 26, Mike Rinder blogged an article “Let the Fair Gaming Begin (Again)” about being fair gamed by the Miscavige sect’s agent following Rinder’s recent podcast with Leah Remini. https://www.mikerindersblog.org/let-the-fair-gaming-begin-again/
So Mike, this new podcast of yours gives you the opportunity to address the “Fair gaming” you undertook on Gerry Armstrong. I think it’s time you spoke about all the shit you did with him in the 80’s, especially those meetings that were filmed by a PI that you hired – that footage is on youtube but I’m sure you know that.
That has been covered extensively, is there something in particular you are trying to elicit? You can read the transcripts, watch the video and obviously you have done so. Are you looking for some secret conspiracy?
OSA trolls almost never reply…. Paul what branch do you work in?
Commenter jim rowles:
To reply honestly and forthrightly would be a violation of “fair game’ policy and KSW, the most sacred and senior scripture.
You made a good suggestion to Rinder, Paul. Suggestions in that vein have been made to him many times over the last decade or so. It is not a suggestion an OSA operative would make; although they would say just about anything.
The fair gaming Rinder undertook on me, the shit he did with me in the 80’s, or the 90’s or 00’s, he has never covered. Not extensively, not narrowly. He has never addressed fair gaming me, extensively or particularly. He used the edited 80’s videos, and lied about them, in his submissions to the IRS that obtained the sect-wide 1993 tax exemption, and US support around the world. Rinder’s “former” sect’s workers still use the product of his covert and illegal op, even in Russia.
It is true that he might have debriefed extensively to Miscavige or his debriefers. But Rinder has not said one word where it matters in the Scientology v. Armstrong war — to me. He has not corrected one word of black PR he originated or forwarded about me or had his underlings or agents spread about me. He has not corrected one word of false sworn testimony.
As for the “secret conspiracy” Rinder asks about, well that’s a redundancy. A conspiracy, of the kind he is in, is “a combination of persons banded secretly together and resolved to accomplish an evil or unlawful end.” See, e.g., my February 18, 2019 article “Lying to the FBI or Else:”
If it is conceivably true that if Rinder told the truth to the FBI he would be prosecuted or it would result in legal actions of one form or another, then he could not have told the truth because he is far from prosecuted and no Federal legal actions have resulted.
The fact that Rinder has been to the FBI is as meaningless as the fact that Miscavige has been to the FBI, or Moxon has been to the FBI, or Hubbard had been to the FBI. Only open statements to his victims are meaningful to his victims. His claimed visits to the FBI in fact are used to excuse his failure to tell the truth to his victims and do what he can to correct ongoing injustices and black propaganda.
The US Federal Government, specifically elements of the US Intelligence Community, colluded with the Scientologists beginning as early as 1991, and broke US laws to grant the cult tax exemption. Relevant US Government officials knew that the Scientologists under Miscavige, just like the Scientologists under Hubbard, were continuously violating public policy, including by framing me and seeking to silence or destroy me. So when Rinder goes to the FBI, if he does, it is to ensure it is known he is not going to tell the truth about lies in the Scientologists’ IRS submissions, the truth about his persecution of the SP religious class, the truth about his conspiracy against rights, and the truth about the Government agencies’ collusion with his co-conspirators.
By having Rathbun make himself so repulsive, and by having him appear to criticize Rinder for what he should be criticized for – not telling the truth about his crimes against wogs — it is then possible to put people who criticize Rinder for not telling the truth – notably his victims — in the same hole for black PR purposes as the repulsive Rathbun.
Rathbun has a second purpose as well. Because Rinder doesn’t provide any specifics of what he did, Rathbun says, his claim on the Aftermath of silencing or destroying people is false. That is, ethical Scientologists have never tried to silence or destroy anyone; otherwise Rinder would say what they did. I think Rathbun signaled to Rinder what a good job he was doing not exposing their crimes and conspiracy.
It is also worth noting that Rathbun’s manifold inconsistencies between what he said at different times renders him a bad witness in legal proceedings, which is what the conspirators would want from him.
Fortunately Rinder doesn’t have everyone bamboozled.
“Conspiracy against rights” is the Miscavige sect’s crime that is key to pursuing justice against the Scientologists. 18 U.S.C. § 241.
Rowles is right, not about Paul, but about Rinder, who has never been honest and forthright, in or out of the sect’s control. For him to reply honestly and forthrightly would indeed be a violation of the fair game policy, and it would stop payments and threaten his PR. He is paid to lie. Very few people call him on his lies or cruelties, and if they do, other people profiting by his lies will accuse his challengers of being OSA trolls. VWD Paul.
The time of asking Rinder to do the right thing, for me, has been over for a while. He has chosen, through his long relationship with me, to side with Miscavige. What that relationship has been, right to this second, is what he has been paid for. He can certainly, and easily, actually, get honest and forthright. And I would be very happy for him, and everyone else, me included, if he did. But for now, until that happy event, the facts that he has not become honest and forthright, that he’s lying and cruel, that he hasn’t addressed his war on me, for which he was and is paid and feted, can profitably be presented as a public service in support of his victims.
