Scientology Crime Syndicate

Here's an amusing one. The Scientology crime syndicate hates having their crimes exposed (obviously) and so they try very hard to intimidate those who expose their crimes into stopping their embarrassing exposures. The cult's many lawsuits against Time Magazine, the Washington Post, 20/20, et al. prove the desperation that public exposure inflicts upon the crime syndicate.

One thing the crime syndicate attempts to do is claim that anything that covers the criminal acts the syndicate engages in and the frauds they sell to the ignorant are some how "copywritten" by their cult. When a reporter covers the medical frauds the crime syndicate engages in, for instance, the cult tries to punish the reporter by claiming the exposure of their criminal actions some how violated the cult's copyrights.

I'm sure every group of criminals would love to play such games.

The truth of the matter is that the crime syndicate failed to copyright nearly everything they sell to their victims and, even more, anything the crime syndicate wants to pretend belongs to them was, in fact, given as "property" to one of their victims who they kidnapped and tortured and who, many years later, won his lawsuit against the crime syndicate, resulting in his obtaining any and all rights to the material. See FACTNet for details as to the copyright fraud. Also see FACT1.HTM for an extract of the relevant disclosures.

The '"Church" of Scientology California' was sued out of existance and the crime syndicate has tried in vain to concoct fake and front companies to hide the unbelievable wealth the cult raked in. (The judges who investigate the crime syndicate's criminal attempts to hide the wealth whenever one of the cult's victims sues them often remark in their final comments as to the abject evil of the cult.) See Operation Clambake.

The Scientology crime syndicate has been forging papers and trying their best to retroactively copyright public domain materials. They don't own what they claim to own: They're in the Public Domain. Unfortunately, most ISPs are unaware of the criminal actions of the crime syndicate and as such, when crime bosses like the one mentioned in the following, claim ownership of web pages, most ISPs will mistakenly remove the web page. Newspapers, television, and radio stations, however, know the full story and are never intimidated by such criminal frauds.

When the final court session is held and Larry Wollersheim actually takes possession of the 15-million or so dollars the cult was punished for due to its very common kidnapping and torture activity, the relevant court docket number can and will be referenced to prove once and for all what the rest of the world already knows: The crime syndicate engages in fraud, lies, and deception in a vain effort to keep the money rolling in. Only we know they're already dead.

One final word specifically for Helena Kobrin:

You don't seriously believe they're going to allow you to live once the raids start, do you? You must know that your own cult bosses are going to have Gene Ingram take you out to the desert and put you away, don't you?

It's certain that if Ingram gets taken first and you escape, your bosses are going to find someone else to shut you up from a distance. It's also a good bet that they're also going to silence Ingram when it's decided he's become a liability. David Miscavage is probably going to kill all of you. You know all the dirt and you know what your crime syndicate is capable of, having engaged in the same yourself. Indeed, that's why they're going to have to silence you.

Your best bet, Helena, is to run right now to your local FBI office and demand enrollment in the Witness Protection Program. Then start talking. Do it now before someone beats you to it and you get killed by David Miscaviage's hired goons to silence you before you can turn Federal evidence. If you're smart, you've been quietly putting away documents in a safe place. If you're smart, you had better start doing so if you haven't.

And let's be real here for a moment: You can't claim you didn't know. There are literally hundreds of documents covering E-Mail messages which people have sent to you covering your bosses' crimes. Pretending ignorance won't save you.

It's merely good advice, Helena. I suggest you take it.

I got an email from a legal representative of the Church of Scientology today. I will enclose the original email and my reply at the end of this post. These legal emails are becoming quite common and I note that some of those emails and the replies sent to them are webbed by various posters here. These emails allow the posters to exercise their own wit and sharp thinking in giving a reply. The effect of the reply is to let the sender know that they are no fools either when it comes to legal matters and they were not intimidated by the email and nor are they ever likely to be. They let the sender know in a well worded response that they have crossed swords with an equal if not more competant player in the legal arena.

It reminds me of sword fighting as seen on some adventure films such as those featuring the Scarlet Pimpernel. An English dandy and a fop to all appearances but a cunning and daring fighter and expert swordsman his real identity. The Scarlet Pimpernel would come up against the evil swordfighting Frenchman, with the Frenchman expecting an easy victory only to find that he had bitten of more than he was able to chew. There would be scenes where the swords would be locked with the Frenchamn smiling, sensing victory, only for the two fighters to push each other apart. Then the Frenchman would wonder why a button had just fallen of his jacket. This would happen again and the Frenchman would get increasingly worried and desperate as the Scarlet Pimpernel would increasingly take control of the situation.

The legal profession employs this sabre rattling and bluster a great deal but when it comes to the real fight then the clear thinking and clever fighting skills show through and the best player will often be the victor. In replying to the email I received I did indeed consider myself to be a sort of aristocratic and oh so English Scarlet Pimpernel of the legal arena. In replying I used my sharpness of thought and keeness of wit to let the sender know that they have indeed crossed swords with someone who was their equal or better and that whatever they had previously thought would be an easy victory would end up nothing of the sort. In short they are brought to realise that they have thrown down a challenge to a talented player in the legal arena and they could have a real fight on their hands.

It is with great pleasure, therefore, that I join that illustrious group of posters on ars who have had the pleasure of drafting a witty and considered response to an email hinting at or even threatening legal action. I proudly present my reply to as well as the original email I received.
