I posted the below comment to Tony Ortega’s blog today. It appeared that it propagated, and I think I saw ten “likes.” But now my comment isn’t there and “Disqus” says it was “Deleted as Spam.” “Disqus” also says, “We have received your request for review,” although I made no such request. This has happened before and was never resolved. https://tonyortega.org/2022/03/27/scientology-wants-you-to-forget-laura-d-got-her-files-because-259-ministers-had-access-to-them/ More path … [Read more...] about Laura DeCrescenzo and me and our ever-so-penitent Scientology priests.
Tony Ortega posted today: Past is Prologue 1998: Gerry Armstrong posted a declaration this week describing Scientology’s private investigator tactics. “A San Anselmo Police cruiser pulled up in front of my car with its lights flashing. The officer driving the cruiser ordered me to stay in my car, and then within a minute or so approached my car to communicate with me. He told me that a woman had made a report at the San Anselmo Police Department that I had chased her. The officer told me … [Read more...] about San Anselmo cop op
On October 24, 2016, I emailed a letter to HarperCollins Publishers Australia Pty Ltd and Steve Cannane to complain about how he dealt with me in Fair Game: the Incredible Untold Story of Scientology in Australia. I identified fact errors and defamatory statements about me, and I included a number of fact errors and spelling or semantic mistakes that are not directly related to me, but which caught my eye in a quick read through the book. On November 7, 2016, I posted my complaint letter and an … [Read more...] about Fair Game: more telling untold stories
On July 28, 2012, Tony Ortega published an article in The Village Voice about John Brousseau, whom I had known in the Sea Org. Brousseau apparently mentioned me in an interview with Ortega, who added an aside about the L. Ron Hubbard biography project. Knowing Hubbard's track record for veracity, however, Brousseau still has fond memories of his time with the man. “The dude was a regular guy. I've read everything about his life. He made mistakes, I get it. He definitely embellished things. … [Read more...] about Journalists and Me; Tony Ortega, Village Voice, July 2012
On April 20, 2012, Tony Ortega posted an article on the Village Voice site about David Love, "I Think I Have Scientology By The Balls," which contains this bit about me: Over the next several months, as he saw patients taken in under false pretenses, and saw some harmed, Love says he became determined to bring news of Narconon to the outside world. "I contacted Bonnie Woods in England," he says, referring to an ex-Scientologist who famously sued the church. "I had come across her website. … [Read more...] about Journalists and Me; Tony Ortega, Village Voice, April 2012
I cannot find where anyone at Tony Ortega’s blog has spoken up to correct inaccuracies in Jon Atack’s September 10, 2016 article about Scientology cult collaborator L. Fletcher Prouty, so I am doing my best now. The article and the inaccuracies I’m correcting also concern testimony in the 1984 trial in the case the Scientologists brought against me in Los Angeles Superior Court. The Scientologists and their collaborators still black PR me and wage lawfare against me relating to this case, and … [Read more...] about Sounding the Sheep Dip for Bubbles
