    An website for IAS refunds could also pull together 'best of' articles, like this superb letter from Michael Pattinson posted at:

    Re: Follow the Money -- Disrupt IAS


    This ESMB post by a 'Patron with Honors' turned skeptic, seems to support your view that 'major donors' are often highly insulated. Maybe an 'out-reach' to IAS members has more potential than anyone could suspect?

    BFG mentions that Scio's who are OT 7 and OT 8 may be especially vulnerable to skepticism right now:

    Individual Anons could start sending "Info-Paks" (Email, CD's, or Hard-copy) to IAS members who have reached the "OT" levels. Michael Pattinson's letter might be especially compelling for "OT's". It's hard not to look at something when it's 'right in front of you'.

    If BFG is right, a direct communication that shows compassion toward those who lost so much of their lives and treasure to the cult, could be highly effective. A sample letter might start:

    "Dear XXXX

    You have devoted a lot to Scientology and as an OT8 have encountered the full range of the church's teaching. I know that when I learn a great deal about any subject, it often leads to some skepticism about particular details. Thinking that might be true for you as well, I'm sending the following information kit, in the sincere spirit of friendship..."


    P.S. Here is more of BFG's quote:

    Follow the money and you will find that it is often donated from the proceeds of a scam or questionable business arrangement. The worst are entrusted professionals who coerce their clients or patients into either an association with Scientology or into other business scams. These people have got to be stopped before they destroy more lives.

    Bob Gray, influential Washington lobbyist and founder of Gray & Co., dies at 92 | The Washington Post


    Mr. Gray was particularly well connected within the Republican Party and hired influential Democrats, including former Carter administration officials, to diversify his firm. Clients included the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the Teamsters union and the Church of Scientology.

    Farther-flung accounts included the Canadian and Moroccan governments, the Marxist Angolan government and the Haitian government under dictator Jean-Claude “Baby Doc” Duvalier, which had retained Gray & Co. to “improve the Haitian image.” Mr. Gray told Forbes magazine that he had been approached by the Libyan government but turned it down as a client.

    Critics often describe lobbying as influence peddling, and some questioned Mr. Gray’s tactics. He attracted attention in the 1980s when his firm distributed video news releases that strongly resembled traditional news reports — and that several TV stations presented as such. Gray & Co. maintained that the firm had advised news outlets of the nature of the releases.

    In 1992, he was the subject of the book “The Power House: Robert Keith Gray and the Selling of Access and Influence in Washington” by Susan B. Trento. Mr. Gray later unsuccessfully sued the author for defamation for her unflattering depiction of his dealings.


    He moved from the Washington area to Florida about two decades ago. Survivors include his partner of 20 years, Efrain Machado of Miami Beach; and a sister. A niece, Robin McGrath, said that Mr. Gray died at a hospital in Miami and that the cause was heart ailments.

    Nice Bump, Wrong Guy.......

    Cleanest Oilman in America:

    Joe Kennedy in his pristine new jacket ( a gift from Hugo Chavez, it came with a free bowl of soup) plays make-believe Oilman.

    I hate when charities become absurd salaries for the 'wonderful' people who operate them and graciously direct exorbitant executive pay to themselves and other cohorts from the proceeds. Former congressman Joe Kennedy helps needy people with cheap oil he used to buy from dictator Hugo Chavez (Citizens Energy / Joe for Oil). He helps himself and his wife (Over 200 Grand a year as Administartor 10 Hours a week reportedly to a gallant, magnanimous 'Philanthropher's' salary of over 1 Million Dollars for the Kennedy Household annually. So generous! Crazy generous!

    Sad news for Joe as Hugo Chavez will not be down for breakfast. Joe for Oil may not either.

    All Organizational tax-exempts?
    LRH would certainly say so, sooooo theta.....

    Joe's certainly not alone when it comes to tax exempt 'charitable' outfits that profit from these operations. Scientology makes Joe Kennedy look like a two-bit operator.

    Scientology abuses non-profit, tax-exempt groups six`ways from Sunday. The Joe for Oil money grab has got nothing on Scientology's non-profit 504 c's, etc...... It must be a staggering total number of bogus front groups, Wise outfits and individuals that have abused the non-profit tax exemptions while pulling in millions for the Cult in the form of required services, group donation to the 'Church', Scientology Religion Mafiosi nauseum.
