    Update: Ethercat found an EIN for the National Commission on Law Enforcement and Social Justice, so I went back and did a manual check of the IRS 'Revoked' listing using the EIN he found, and this popped up:

    EIN Legal Name (DBA) Address Type Revoked Posted
    95-4242752 NATIONAL COMMISSION ON LAW AGUORA HILLS CA 91301 501(c)(3) 15-May-2010 09-Jun-2011

    Turns out the on-line search name field is shorter than in the downloadable Exempt Organization Area database files, so missed it using the full name.

    So I went back and searched the 'Revoked' list just using "Scientology" and got these:

    22-2704727 SCIENTOLOGY DEFENSE FUND TRUST WATERTOWN MA 02472 501(c)(3) 15-May-2010 09-Jun-2011
    91-1199161 SCIENTOLOGY ENDOWMENT TRUST SEATTLE WA 98104 501(c)(3) 15-May-2010 09-Jun-2011

    The reason given for revocation is:
    So three from the Closing Agreement down, a bunch to go. Interesting they all stopped filing around the same time, 2007/2008. Wonder why?

    Looks like a couple of narCONon's went down around the same time:

    EIN Legal Name (DBA) Address Type Revoked Posted

    05-0617559 APPALACHIAN MOUNTAIN OF HOPE INC (NARCONON APALACIAN MOUNTAIN OF HOPE) FORT ASHBY WV 26719 501(c)(3) 15-May-2010 09-Jun-2011

    43-1936845 NARCONON ST LOUIS INC CHESTERFIELD MO 63017 501(c)(3) 15-Dec-2010 10-Aug-2011

    Seems like 2008 wasn't a good year for the fronts.

    As I recall, doesn't the agreement let CoS include new organizations at will? (It did list a number of organizations, but didn't it have a shit that looks just like them clause tucked in there?)

    Do they have any real overhead for folding one tent and possibly popping another open? (They are rather famous for doing meaningless name changes for legal reasons and trying to avoid paying thin dimes.)

    I'm wondering if those were real shutdowns, or just changing the name tags.

    The EIN doesn't change with a name change, some of their fronts have had 8 - 10 name changes but the EIN stayed the same. That's why the EIN can be so important to tracking these buggers down. The EIN/GEN combination is what the IRS goes by, not the name.

  9. He there, I am new to this forum, so I apologize if I am posting in the wrong place. I'm researching a group Gulf Coast Barefoot Doctors, a group that has given BP Oil Spill activists a ton of grief, and I have been getting word of mouth information that they are a CoS front group. They certainly quote scientologists on their website while trying to sell detox products. I will be reading a lot in these forums and educating myself, figured I'd ask if anyone can point me in the right direction. I should add that just about everyone I have met who has had experience w/ GCBD is terrified of them. Here is some recent info about selling FIR therapy that quotes scientology. http://www.gcbarefootdocs.org/blog/...ed-sauna-firs-therapy-makes-a-big-difference/

    From what I can tell, and as I am sure you know, Deborah Dupre and Delia Labarre seem to be central figures. Some of their behavior against their enemies seems very close to the scientology practice of "dead agenting". I couldnt find anything directly connecting them to CoS.

    I have not heard of the group Gulf Coast Barefoot Doctors but after researching them, they definitely have C0S links and a CoS feel to them. Whether they are a front group per se I dont know. A lot of their holistic medical views have a lot of parallels in Scientology, particularly the concept of detoxification and the use of saunas. This is very similar to programs used by Scientology front drug treatment center Narconon. (Other characteristic Scientology medical beliefs involve use of vitamins, the belief that vaccines cause autism, anti-psychiatry etc)

    A particular source sited by GCBD on the subject of detoxification using sauna is Sherry A. Rogers MD, who I believe is a Scientologist
    http://www.truthaboutscientology.com/stats/by-name/s/sherry-rogers.html

    Besides Rogers, other physicians that seem to be associates, either formally or informally, with them are Dr. Gabriel Segura, Dr. Rodney Soto, Dr. Mark Sirkus(who is not a MD). Sirkus seems connected to Dr. David Minkoff who is famous on this forum for his involved in the death of Scientologist Lisa McPherson. Sirkus is also pushing sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) as a cure for cancer, an idea that seems to have originated with Italian former oncologist Tullio Simoncini , whose license was revoked and who was convicted of manslaughter in the deaths of three patients. Sirkus and others are still advocating his "cure".

    I believe that sometimes Scientology works behind the scenes with groups with a similar agenda, such as their recent links with Farrakhans Nation of Islam. Here is an interesting article speculating on Scientology links with Moonies in their anti-vaccine efforts.

    http://leftbrainrightbrain.co.uk/2006/11/07/autism-scientology-and-the-moonies/

    So to sum up I would say CoS roots in alternative medium scene run wide and deep and I think there is a lot of evidence of overlapping individuals and ideas with Gulf Coast Barefoot Doctors even if GCBD is not an actual front group.

  15. It might be important to distinguish between actual front groups (many of which are theoretically nonprofit) and businesses owned and operated by Scientologists that license management or other materials from Scientology front groups.

    Xenu-directory has done a fantastic job of sorting this out.

    http://www.xenu-directory.net/documents/corporate/

    It's my opinion that front groups have different goals - some are designed to infiltrate and use local, regional or national politics; others are designed to recruit; others to 'legitimize' Scientology. I think some are just designed to hide money.

    Following the money always helps.
  16. DeathHamster Member

    The Hubbard Management groups that sell Scientology courses are a grey area. On the one hand, they're private companies that get huge kick-backs for selling Scientology to unsuspecting small businesses. On the other, there has been at least one case where CoS has walked in and taken the company away from the owner. (Maybe they should have read the WISE fine print more carefully?)

    I examined the site and ran names through scientology completions and got nothing.

    Lots of businesses and groups get suckered into cult activities and projects.

    This one got Whole Foods, Starbucks and others to support the event:

    This doesn't make Whole Foods or Starbucks scientologists, but it does expose their stupidity.

    Some WWP Members pooned both companies about what they got sucked into, but received little more than form letter responses.

    I believe that vetted research must take place before throwing the scientology label at organizations and companies.

    Haven't looked at this thread in a while, and I believe the "Gulf Coast Barefoot Doctors" mentioned above are pulling another $cientology trick and tacking themselves onto the coat tails of a legitamit organization.

    Found this on the Barefoot Doctors Academy web page, and they don't appear to be involved with anything those GCBD slimeballs are advocating. In fact the name comes from the people trained to provide medical help in mostrly 3rd world countries where people do go barefoot a lot:

    It hadn't sunk in that they'd actually bothered to incorporate the IGN until I was looking though a whole pile of IRS pdfs. I can't think of any reason that the IGN interacts with the woggy world outside of Scientology and would need an incorporation, but hey, if it wasn't weird, it wouldn't be Scientology.

    Category:Inspector General Network

    The nice part about the pdfs is that they are all public documents, so no Avagram when I upload them to my wiki.

    (They even play cute and use the 1710 Ivar side-entrance to 6331 Hollywood Blvd. Big deal. I geo-tagged the location.)

    Don't get too excited. CoS had several WISE companies, one of which was supposed to be closed per the IRS agreement, others rotted. Tracing those bastards with Mike Gormez years ago was a major headache and pain in the ass. There are better tools now.

    Aside from never repaid loans from front corps to corp officers, some interesting things are starting to fall ouf of the front 990's. Without getting into specifics, I'm seeing things like:

    Front "A" gives 'grants' to fronts "B", "C", and "D".
    "B" then gives smaller 'grants' to "C", "D", and "E".
    "C" gives 'grants' to "D" and "E",
    "D" gives a 'grant' to "E"
    Then "E" gives a BIG 'grant' back to Front "A", who started the whole thing.

    And that's one of the simpler ones.

    Forgot to add, I think (don't know for sure) the IAS getting it's status changed to "Religious", so it no longer has to file 990's, has a lot to do with hiding it's part in this "grant" shuffling.

  33. This is very interesting. A defector by the name of
    Excellent observation!

    Here's an great topic to discuss with James J. Jackson, CFO defector speaking with the Tampa Bay Times.

    Are they merely laundering money? Or do they reflect untaxed commissions to for-profit business associates who receive income for body routing?


  34. Quite right. One doesn't even know if the local managers authorized the logo use - which may only reflect who was catering. I could have an event, buy some McDonald's hamburgers to give away, and put their logo on my flyer. Whoopee!

    However, what can be suspected is a type of business networking that is intended to add credibility to a fraudulent pitch hidden in the weeds. Only by attending anonymously can one unveil the culprit(s) (Narconon, ABLE, CCHR, etc.)

  35. Grants can be booked as revenue. Therefore, one method of inflating revenue (upstat!) would be to do the grant round robin, such that all revenue would should upward streaking explosive boing - just like LRH said it would! Forget about margins!

    Inc. magazine has listed two alleged WISE front companies: Sterling Management and Singer Associates as among America's largest growing small businesses. Such shenanigans may be how they did it. LATimes Wednesday, 27 June 1990, page A1:1

    CoS also was caught inflating sales of Dianetics in the 80s by sending public members to the bookstores to buy up copies, thus inflating the stats into NYT bestseller range. A similar round-robin upstat mission.
