Investigations Into Narconon of Georgia

Post by AnonyMary » Sat Sep 29, 2012 7:32 pm

*Narconon Desmond Case hits the news locally this week. Keep your eyes and ears posted. This is more than regional. This story will be going national in a matter of time.

Here is the first to hit the wires, a video promo for Monday's Report from Atlanta Channel 2 wsbtv "Investigative Reporter Jodie Fleisher reveals secrets the program fought to protect. Insiders blow the whistle on problems the state ignored for years. And the connection to the Church of Scientology." Looks like it will have interviews with Mrs. Desmond and Luke Catton.
Video link is here
http://forum.reachingforthetippingpoint ... l#msg26265

Tipping Point poster wynot says:

"Just a note for our compadres in other climes; WSB, local channel 2 is the largest and most watched local news operation in the large Atlanta viewing area. A headlined story by them will be seen by at least several hundreds of thousands of people in North Georgia. And odds are they will have companion stories in their local newspaper (Atlanta Journal-Constitution), and, more widely-reaching, on their 50,000 watt clear channel AM broadcasting arm, which (at night) can be heard by millions of people throughout the south-eastern US!"

Not sure but I hear that multiple media sources are working o stories.

Here is a generic notice I am putting up on the forums. Thanks to the poster who noted the live link in his previous post.

UPDATE: This is going to be one of the most important weeks in the history of exposing Scientology's Front Groups. Be on the look out for multiple media reports, expecially coming out of the State of Georgia. We're talking documentation of RICO claims, use of state government officials to cover up crimes and license violations.

First, the upcoming WSB tv investigation; Their investigative piece airs Monday at 5 pm.

You can watch live at
http://www.wsbtv.com/s/news/live/

For the latest info, visit this thread
http://forum.reachingforthetippingpoint ... l#msg26263

For the latest documents just released, including the documents the judge recently ordered unsealed, much to Narconon International's opposition and fear, visit this thread. Exhibit A contains NN GA's ED Mary Rieser's Things That Shouldn't Be Report to NN Int proves that they hid records and that a lot of bad things were going on at Narconon of GA.

Part 2 - Pete Combs WSB Radio Broadcast Narconon Investigation Listen Live 7:45 am EST:
http://streaming.wsbradio.com/_players/ ... sign=WSBAM

ethercat's review when it played at 6:15
http://forum.reachingforthetippingpoint ... l#msg26437
OMG! After playing a clip of former
employee Allison Riepe saying Mary Rieser told her to change the letterhead on stationary they sent to the Florida Drug Court, all Mary Rieser had to say in response was "Stationary doesn't kill anyone."

She totally doesn't get the sequence of events! She doesn't even seem to get that lying to a Court is WRONG, and that if she hadn't lied, that Patrick would never have been at Narconon of Georgia.

She did say a bit more, but that one bit surprised even me.

I think it was Arnie Lerma who coined the phrase, "Scientology - it's worse than you think", but I'm gonna rephrase it to "Narconon - it's worse than you could ever imagine; it's worse than I could ever imagine!"

Live again at 7:45am, and I'm sure the audio will be posted later in the day for those who miss the live broadcast.

I am a bit disappointed because the police investigation proceeds at a snail pace. Maybe this is characteristic for the South, but in New York City such investigations go much faster.

VIDEO STORY IS HERE

You can read the story and then see the video. Note how the leader of Narconon GA tells lies on camera which contradict her own easily accessible website.

The Delphi Academy lies to your face and contradicts its website the same way.

Tony Ortega - Ortega Underground articles on this:

How much proof do reporters need that Narconon is a Scientology front group?
Scientology's drug rehab program, Narconon, continues to be mired in controversy over patient deaths and government investigations. But as that goes on and on, why are there still reporters and news organizations that seem nervous about explaining that Narconon is, first and foremost, an arm of Scientology? We take a look at the facts.
http://ortegaunderground.wordpress.com/ ... high-seas/

Scientology's Georgia drug rehab hit with double-barreled media onslaught
Narconon's nightmarish year continues as a remarkable media firestorm has started in Atlanta. We wrote earlier about Patrick Desmond's 2008 death and his family's lawsuit this summer, and were outraged by some of the deceptive Scientology practices outlined in court documents. Now, a coordinated expose by local radio and television is exploding this story in a remarkable way.

Investigations Into Narconon of Georgia

Post by Don Carlo » Mon Oct 08, 2012 5:11 am

Narconon is under Church of Scientology, International, Inc. (CSI) according to the Church of Scientology's own filings and admissions, as follows:

Church of Spiritual Technology A1
|
| -- Religious Technology Corporation B1
| -- | ------------- |
| -- | ---Church of Scientology, International, Inc, C1
| -- |--- |
| -- |--- Executive Strata International, D1
| -- |--- |
| -- |---International Management Executive Committee, D2
| -- |--- |
| -- |---Flag Command Bureaux, D3
| -- |--- |
| -- |---Association for Better Living and Education (ABLE), F1
| -- | ------------- |
Narconon International, Inc., F2
-------------------- |
Narconon Centers, like Narconon of Georgia

Key
Black lines = legal ownership/ corporate hierarchy.
Blue lines = copyright control by Church of Spiritual Technology (CST). See Copyrights of Narconon Material, at http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/Narconon/copyrights.htm
Green lines = trademark control by Religious Technology Corporation (RTC), which owns trademarks like "L. Ron Hubbard."
Orange lines = trademark control by ABLE, which owns some trademarks including its own name and "Narconon." Thus Narconon International, Inc. is not owned but licensed & controlled by ABLE.
Purple lines = franchise-type contract between Narconon International, Inc., and Narconon centers like Narconon Georgia. See http://www.exposescientology.com/scient ... racts.html
Underlined = in 1993 IRS Closing Agreement (called "'93 IRS deal" in footnotes). This tightly binds each to CSI, RTC and CST. Analysis & text of '93 IRS deal at http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/Cowen/essays/irs.html
Blue text = Staffed by Sea Org members X1, X2
Orange text = Not part of Sea Org or management, but controlled by copyrights and trademarks.

Footnotes

A1. Church of Spiritual Technology. Shadow rulers, who can yank the trademarks away at will. "RTC...gains its legal authority ...through the trademarks of Dianetics and Scientology. CST owns the copyrights of the religious Scriptures" quote from Miscavige Declaration, http://www.gerryarmstrong.org/50grand/l ... 09-24.html . To make itself a church, CST employs four full time clergy who must spend 12.5 hrs a week in religious services.
Page 12-3,
http://www.xenu-directory.net/documents ... ions-4.pdf
"RTC received...trademarks... subject to an additional "Option Agreement" between Hubbard, RTC and CST. In two so-called "Option Agreements" from May 1982, Hubbard granted CST the right to purchase at any time from RTC the "Marks", the "Advanced Technology" and all the rights to them for the sum of $ 100" from (1)"Option Agreement (Marks)", Notarized Agreement between L. Ron Hubbard and the Church of Spiritual Technology, County of Los Angeles, California, May 10th, 1982/July 9th, 1982 and (2) Option Agreement (Advanced Technology-U.S.) - Notarized Agreement between L. Ron Hubbard and the Church of Spiritual Technology, California, May 10th & July 9th, 1982.
In the CST Form 1023, there is no mention of the proposed CST owners, but it does say of Author Services, Inc, a predecessor and now part of CST: " shares have been owned by a few members of its staff." Part II, Question 3 of CST Form 1023, at http://www.xenu-directory.net/documents ... pdf#page=6 .
Also see http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/Cowen/essays ... html#pt2_2

B1. Religious Technology Center - headed by Miscavige, COB (Chairman of the Board). Own Scientology, Dianetics, L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology Cross, and S-and-double-triangle trademarks. Page 3-13, http://www.xenu-directory.net/documents ... ions-2.pdf RTC owns OT level copyrights.

C1. Church of Scientology International ("Mother Church"). Martin Ottman explains major control links at CSI and Flag, at http://www.holysmoke.org/cos/docs/decla ... ttmann.txt

D1. Executive Strata International. one of CSI's principal organizations, page 6-7, http://www.xenu-directory.net/documents ... ions-2.pdf See Ottman description of hierarchy at http://www.holysmoke.org/cos/ottmann-dec.htm.

D2. International Management Executive Committee. Page 3-22, http://www.xenu-directory.net/documents ... ions-2.pdf

D3. Flag Command Bureaux and its subordinate groups listed at http://www.xenu-directory.net/documents ... ions-2.pdf , page 3-26; in list of CSI principal organizations, page 6-7.

F1. Association for Better Living and Education owns trademarks of its own name and those of Narconon, Criminon, and Applied Scholastics. Yet all ABLE groups use Hubbard writing, so are under CST. They use L. Ron Hubbard's name, so are under RTC. CST directly owns the Way to Happiness trademark and copyright, so CST controls WTHF even more directly. ABLE trademarks described at http://www.xenu-directory.net/documents ... ibit-o.pdf ; page 2. More at http://www.able.org/about/

F2. Narconon, International . The IRS deal is with "Narconon Inc, which says on its Form 990 filing, at http://www.xenu-directory.net/documents ... php?ntt=64 , that it is a Woburn, Massachusetts corporation. However, Narconon Int'l, of Los Angeles, also filed a Form 990, at http://www.xenu-directory.net/documents ... php?ntt=25 . It collects the money and gives the orders. See http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~dst/Narconon/organisations.htm

X1 . "All church organizations above the level of Class V are staffed by Sea Organization members," http://www.bonafidescientology.org/Chap ... page09.htm

X2. "Only Sea Org members can be employed at ABLE," Narconon Not Scientology? Then Why Is Its Leader in the Church's Concentration Camp? by Tony Ortega, By Tony OrtegaTue., Aug. 14 2012, http://blogs.villagevoice.com/runninsca ... inberg.php

CST owns the copyrights of the religious Scriptures" quote from [i]Miscavige Declaration[/i],  http://www.gerryarmstrong.org/50grand/legal/decl-miscavige-1999-09-24.html .  To make itself a church, CST employs four full time clergy who must spend 12.5 hrs a week in religious services.

"RTC received...trademarks... subject to an additional "Option Agreement" between Hubbard, RTC and CST. In two so-called "Option Agreements" from May 1982, Hubbard granted CST the right to purchase at any time from RTC the "Marks", the "Advanced Technology" and all the rights to them for the sum of $ 100" from  (1)"Option Agreement (Marks)", Notarized Agreement between L. Ron Hubbard and the Church of Spiritual Technology, County of Los Angeles, California, May 10th, 1982/July 9th, 1982 and (2) Option Agreement (Advanced Technology-U.S.) - Notarized Agreement between L. Ron Hubbard and the Church of Spiritual Technology, California, May 10th & July 9th, 1982.
In the CST Form 1023, there is no mention of the proposed CST owners, but it does say of Author Services, Inc, a predecessor and now part of CST: " shares have been owned by a few members of its staff."

F1. [b]Association for Better Living and Education[/b] owns trademarks of its own name and those of Narconon, Criminon, and Applied Scholastics.  Yet all ABLE groups use Hubbard writing, so are under CST. They use L. Ron Hubbard's name, so are under RTC.  CST directly owns the Way to Happiness trademark and copyright, so CST controls WTHF even more directly.

However,  Narconon Int'l, of Los Angeles, also filed a Form 990, at http://www.xenu-directory.net/documents/corporate/990s.php?ntt=25 . It collects the money and gives the orders.

Investigations Into Narconon of Georgia

Post by whitesand » Fri Nov 09, 2012 1:08 am

Judge rules against Narconon. Copied from wwp, credit to anonymous poster.

This story was on the 6:00 pm ABC local news in Atlanta this evening. Judge wasn't accepting any of their bullshit, and handed down the most severe sanctions possible. The judge also ruled that Mary Reiser was lying to the court, and that Narconon was guilty of obstructing justice.

Narconon can appeal the judge's ruling, if they want. The trial will begin next February.
