    Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    New to posting here but have been lurking for a while. Sorry if this is in the wrong section.

    Not sure what this is all about, but I keep receiving messages from the YouTube user JonathonBarbera. He recently sent me a message on YouTube with one of his videos.

    I guess he has been trying to fight Anonymous saying that we are defaming him and calling him a pedo and naming him as Tom Newton. Here is the message and the video:

    "Undercover Church of Scientology operative Jacob K. Reist (aka JKR aka Jake Vigil) has been spreading false data about me being Tom Newton and a pedophile on various Anonymous web sites for over eight months.

    The Church of Scientology is an abusive cult that smiles to your face while secretly plotting your destruction.

    He spammed that message to me too.
    Not trusting his motives, I immediately blocked him and ignored his friend request.

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    I ignored the friend request, but not going to block him just yet. I want to see where he is going with this.

    Interesting to say the least.

    I think the original Tom Newton (Tommy Girl III) really did log off last year and someone else has picked up his baton.

    JonathonBarbera: "
    I don't expect Anonymous to befriend me. But I think those who are interested in social activism will realize that falsely calling me a pedophile on Anonymous sites because Jacob K. Reist is spreading lies about me doesn't correctly target the abuses and bad policies within the Church of Scientology.

    Here is a new web site run by former church members who are now protesting the church:
    Scientology Cult
    "

    Starting to feel like I am being trolled. Not sure if I should keep posting his messages or not.

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    The root of this problem is that every Internet "character" has been flagged with the Tom Newton moniker, even characters that are known not to be the same person, like Jonathan Barbera and Jabob Reist.

    If Barbera has good dox that Reist = Newton, more power to him, lots of people would like to know. Otherwise he's just guessing, same as the rest of us.

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    before Anonymous showed up JB was a sad individual, having wasted his life not only on a cult that eventually kicked him out but someone who wasted their life since then trying to get back in. After we showed up he seemed to lose all sense of self and became increasingly erratic.

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    then who the fuck is the tom newton that runs anonymousisahategroup.blogspot.com?????????????????

    This sounds like an elaborate troll.

    I thought we had dox on this fucker???
  12. Californianon Member

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    He's saying that "Jacob K. Reist (aka JKR aka Jake Vigil)", an undercover Church of Scientology operative has been running that site and spreading false information on JB. I guess that way Jacob Reist can continue with the site without repercussion from Anonymous, since we'd be focused on JB.

    At least that's what get from it all.

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    Seriously, guys, the best, most effective way to beat this faggot is to ignore him. He's an attention whore. He's doing this because he think he's helping the cult (when he's not), and to troll us into stopping.

    Ignore him, and let him starve to death.

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    Sounds like someones tinfoil is on way too tight, if this was a smear campaign (joe job) by someone from OSA against this JB dude then why is he masquerading as Tom Newton? Wouldn't it make more sense to pretend to be JB?
    The whole thing looks like an elaborate troll (badly done imo) to stir up the moralfaggotry within chanology/anonymous all done by the same person. Seems to be working too I might add.

    Scientology needs to be aware that this anonymousisahategroup dude whoever he is is causing Scientology more problems then we are. he keeps kicking the hive and stirring up the swarm and Scientology gets to feel our wrath every time he does. I guess one could say he is at cause for Scientologys problems and requires handling.

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    Latest message from JB. Did this faggot just make a threat? Last message I am posting about it. Just thought this was worth posting since it sounded like a threat to me.

    "There is more to be concerned with here than some web sites defaming me.

    What if I was as psychotic as the SP declare the church gave me is intended to indicate? Having seen Anonymous web sites defaming me, what if I were dangerous and went out and did something vengeful like drive my car into a crowd of protesting Anons? This might be an unlikely scenario, but other people less stable than me might not have reacted well to being labeled a pedophile on the internet.

    If the church set me up like this and framed Anonymous for it, then how many ~really~ crazy former Scientologists might be baited by Anonymous to the point of a violent psychotic break?

    See, I don't mind being made fun of by Anonymous. That's why I didn't even complain about ED's pages on me until now. (It's been over 8 months.) I thought it was all just making fun of me. Now I know that it was planted by church op JKR to build up claims that I was Tom Newton.

    Wow you guys are really fucking easily distracted aren't you?

    Once again, ignore Tom and keep attacking Scientology. That is the target, not some wingnut who honestly, sounds so negative and nasty and slimy when he writes is unlikely to get anyone to listen to him.

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    Agreed. However I do have a bit at stake here which is why I have been investigating this. I don't think anyone should get distracted by it but I would like a little help tracking down this fucker making bomb and death threats as me and put him where he belongs; in a jail cell.

    Again I don't feel like retyping this again so I am going copy pasta from another WWP post I made about it which contains copy pasta from my blog as well.

    *Begin*

    OK, I have some beef with this Tom Newton guy too. He's been going around on alt.religion.scientology pretended to be me saying pro-scientology, racist and pro-pedo shit because I did a good job showing he was a moron. Then he tried doxing me (and failed) and outted him for being an idiot again.

    So he's SUPER BUTT-HURT about me. I don't feel like typing it again so I'm going copy pasta it off my blog.

    I have been outwitting this "Tom" guy who a while now (though it's not hard to do.) For example; I have installed a traffic analyser to this site and dropped bait for Tom to come here and post, and he took it hook, line and sinker! 76.18.78.98. This is also the same IP that comes up every time I get a threatening Anonymous comment. So if you get a threatening Anonymous, it's probably this guy!

    I did a trace route that leaded me to Albuquerque, New Mexico. Which is weird considering Tom Newton lived in the state of Washington.

    Of all the people on the internet, I got a nice e-mail from none other than Jonathan Barbera a few days later dropping me some information. Telling me that the "Tom Newton" we all know and hate is gone forever. Alan Conner, his real name is innocent and has nothing to do with the Tom Newton of Anonymous is a Hate Group Blog. The guy who runs the site and uses the handle Tom Newton (and now revjimjesus and machvon@gmail.com) is none other than Jacob K. Reist aka Jake Vigil aka JKR!

    When I read this I was like "Pfft, yea right!" Jonathan Barbera isn't exactly the bastion of reliable information. I thought I'd humor him and look him up anyways and found this ED page.

    Reverend Jacob K. Reist - Encyclopedia Dramatica

    Humm a troll trolling Anonymous Scientology protesters in Albuquerque, NM? Really now, that are the odds? Apparently he tried to troll Anonymous and they got the best of him and he went away. ...Or did he? Perhaps his hate blog is just an attempt at revenge under another nick people already hate so he could get away from all the drama of getting fucked with in real life and pass the blame on to a now retired troll.

    This is the REAL Tom Newton's profile. He hasn't made a post since September of '08. His last post says:


    Though it pains me to admit it, I think Jonathan was right! Thought I would like to investigate it further. If anyone knows anything drop me a line.

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    He's alot of things but Jonathon Barbera is not Tom Newton, nor is he a pedo. He's recently realized how much CoS screwed with him when he was in.

    Believe it or not, He actually was an OG years ago, in the 1990's and he did post some of the OT levels, as well as help do the glossary which is now used on www.xenu-directory.net back then.

    The encyclopedia thing needs to be changed because it's just not true.

    Alan Connor was Tom Newton and I know nothing about the Vigil guy but nothing surprises me anymore.

    Jonathon can be pain in the ass sometimes but I blame scientology for alot of those resentments of the past. Give him a break and take those lies out of the encyclopedia

  21. Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    JB is Tom Newton. That's my theory. It's all a ploy to get Anonymous (or anyone) to actually read any of JB's SEVEN e-books on lulu.com.

    Sounds like a marketing ploy to me, but then again, i ahve a hard time trustng Scilons.......
  22. Optimisticate Member

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    Maybe there is no one person behind Tom Newton? There isn't just one person in the Sea Org, there isn't just one person polishing DM's ass daily. It may be multiple people within scientology that all pretty much have the same mission: Ensure any fingers pointed back at them are pointing to SP's that they want silenced (or would that be scilenced?).

    It's just a wild guess, but that's all anyone's really got at this point.
  23. Suzette Member

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    So troll number two adopted troll number one's nick? Pretty bizarre.

    Which one lives in Albuquerque? Is that the believed blogger, or the ex-scilon who wants to be left alone?
  24. wolfyrik Member

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    JB used to post quite a lot in ARS. Infact I once clocked him posting every hour for over 48 hours. This is before Alan Connor became Tom Newton.

    There was a lot of dispute as to whether it was the same Jonothan Barbera (search: jonoclam) who wrote some critical documents after leaving the cult, or a bunch of OSA shills usurping his identity. AFAIK it was never truly resolved though I seem to recall that many regulars believed him to be one and the same.
    If it is the same guy then for some reason he did a 180, returning to attack ARS and the critics there with venom and extreme prejudice 10 years after writing a lot of critical articles FOR the critics. It was a very odd time.

    This was all back in 2007.

    Edit: Sorry Mary, I'm duplicating you to a great extent.
  25. wolfyrik Member

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    Looks to me like you might be right. I was suspicious of this kinda crap when "JB" returned to ARS and it does seem unusual for Alan Connor, a usenet troll, to go full time outside of usenet against Anon and critics. That's excessive for even the worst trolls.
    Who's ever seen a troll make a career out of trolling the whole web?
  26. Lorelei Member

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    I'm not sure why we even care. I glanced at the Newton blog ages ago. it is poorly-researched, full of untruths, and the writer is willfully ignorant. I deemed it to be a waste of time from that point forward.

    One moron out there refusing to accept the mountains of corroborating evidence against the cult of Scientology and the well-documented crimes, human rights violations, and idiocy passing as "Gospel from Source" is simply not worth my time.

    I have other, more effective and productive, things to do than worry about one lone buttwart out there.

    So, I am guessing, do you.
  27. Suzette Member

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    He has posted threats and falsehoods against people that have turned them off to chanology. Maybe these were people that would have gone under in time anyhow, but the fact remains, that it has happened.

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    False data huh? Sure talks like a Scilon and has horrible taste in music, but I still don't see why I should care about either one of these attention whores.

    "Thanks again for your assistance. You've helped improve my opinion about Anonymous in general.

    Some posters in the thread seem to think that I am worried about entries about me on ED. The problem seems to be that what started as parody and rumors on ED and WWP ended up on this page:

    Tom Newton/Jonathon Barbera/ Pedophile

    This page is the number one page coming up in google searches on my name. It gives my photo, house address and the false labels of Tom Newton and a pedophile. Now JKR is posting death threats against Tom Newton knowing that it is my house address associated with Tom Newton."

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    Lurk moar. I can think of two, and all of them were covered here in the last couple of months. There was that "curvy" ex-sea org chick. There was an eighteen year old girl who signed up for a few courses and then got out. There was somebody who had their dox dropped a couple of days ago. And then there's his general spew of accusing people by name of random shit, like sexually harassing minors. Every name he gets he puts up on his site and makes up shit about the victim. This stuff doesn't matter to some people, but others can worry about losing their job or whatever.

    Anyhow, I got tried of dealing with all the crap on his blog, so I stopped trying to read it.
  33. xenubarb Member

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    I've banned him from twitter, vimeo and youtube. I've killfiled him on ARS. As far as I'm concerned, he's not even a blip on my radar, unless someone draws my attention to some tomfaggery.
  34. T.W.C_Anon Member

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    I'm not convinced... That Tom newton that puts up all that faggotry on his blog is now worried cause there is members of anon who are close to finding out who he is and outing this sack of shit. Coming in here and pretending that it isn't actually him its someone (conveniently OSA supposedly) joe jobbing his ass. Even if it was he still deserves it for his faggotry on ARS. karma is a bitch dude and its catching up.

    Re: Jonathon Barbera AKA Tom Newton (or not?)

    No! JB is not Tom Newton, and Tom Newton is not the Alan Connor/Tom Newton of historic UseNet fame for his juvenile trollmanship. Scientology has adopted Tom Newton as a viable user name for ARS. That is all, and there is no more, and any theory other than above is presented without any contact with both Tom Newtons over the years.
