    Lawrence Wright has the right background to expose the cult. His book The Looming Tower is the best thing out there on al-Qaeda. What a great Third Anoniversary present.

    I like to pull little weird shit out, like the following:
    So, here you have deeply indoctrinated adherents who have undergone a lot of mental processing and paid hundreds of thousands of dollars...

    And they wind up in a train station trying to control passing strangers with their mind. Yeah, that's a "world without insanity" all right!

    There are crazy homeless people in train stations who do that too. The big difference is, they didn't pay anything for that ability.

    I wonder if Amnesty International will feel a bit embarassed if the FBI charges Co$ with human trafficking? Many people tried to get them interested in this with no results.

    I stand corrected. He was so vehement in his videos that I assumed he left in 2008.

    #13 and #9 are especially gratifying. Nice to see Shelly Miscavige get some notice. And Tommy Davis, of course.

    We sent them a large file complaint quite some time ago. Some law student Anon friends delivered it
    to them in person here in Canada. They had dox already and adding mine to the pile. They could be
    acting, but we don't know it yet.

    I think they act. Just my opinion.

    Now DM can have a huge meal of, "eating his words of Victory over Anonymous."

    I hope the FBI probes far up DM's Arse. He may as well get used to having his oricle stretched, if he's heading to jail,..., LOL

    If people are going to poon then they should keep on dragging the argument back to facts of the article rather than playing their misdirection game and getting wrapped up in tit-for-tat.
    If the scilons realise everytime they post that it tends to result in having more home truths dragged out in front of the world then they'll largely fuck off, or drive themselves into new depths of keyboard-mashing batshit insanity and self-abuse.

    Just very happy to see this article and share the hard ons and happy dances happening here. As good as it was, I felt it was a little soft on Hubbard's early career, leaving out known incidents of abandonment and abuse to his wives and stealing the rocket scientists' boat for example. The emphasis and investigation on Hubbard's lies regarding his dismal military history pretty much made up for that.

    I would in my dreams like to see a good investigative piece on exactly who/what at the IRS takes some of the profits from the worldwide publication of Scientology materials, and the "church status" deal that the IRS made with $catology. Love to see the Teabaggers get riled up over that.

    When I saw that I was gonna post how it would have greater impact (with the general public) than the original story.
    Matt was a little glib though, don't you think?
