At the end of last week, Project Chanology Anons with the aid of xenubarb as the honorary namefag, have filed an FOIA Request on the I.R.S. to release the finalized Closing Agreements of the 1993 settlement in the Church of Scientology vs. I.R.S. affair. The public domain versions of the dox in said paper raid are indexed under the FOIA section here:
Although we have the unofficial draft copy of the final agreement leaked to the Wall Street Journal long ago, prior FOIA requests and subpeonas for the FINALIZED agreement and all other related IRS investigation files on scilons has always been b&.
However, we have requested the finalized closing agreement ONLY, plus leveraged a recent series of footbullets by Senator Grassley when he dropped the ball on his 3yr investigation into media-based ministries, with an added twist of exploiting the upcoming Sunshine Week national platform for promoting FOIA, sunshine laws and our right to know.
The gameplan goes liek this:
1. File IRS FOIA request calling for the release of closing settlement agreement by the end of Sunshine Week. CC key players [DONE!]
2. Apply pressure as we wait for IRS rejection **
3. Get Rejection, Richochet it right bak into Senator's Grassley's lap with open letter presser
**Your HALP needed on step 2 to promote sunshine & lollipops faggotry, "TAX THE CULT" and "GIVE UP THE DOX" adlib themes in your upcoming protests & harpooning efforts. Moar on this in next post.
Note: we fully expect the FOIA Request filed on the IRS to be Rejected. That's part of the plan, although its a mighty fine request - the point is for it to FAIL so that we have a spark to ignite a fire. The time is right, the coals are hot AND with this FOIA request we have a poker in the firepit to stir up some flames under the cult's special tax priviledges that violates the establishment clause. See http://www.taxthecult.com for all the important facts you need to know on this matter.
Once our FOIA Request is denied, we will gain a hardfast 21st century clarification of the exact reason why the I.R.S. will not give up the dox on the closing settlement agreement only - all while keeping the sekrit investion files sekrit. This will atleast give us a firm starting point for pursuing further actions on the IRS tax front AND help to greatly ease the current which comes first, the chicken or the egg situation we have surrounding where the ball of yarn that needs unraveled begin.
And who knows, if the stars align with rainbows in a land where the unicorns lay down with lions -- we might just actually get DOX on this initial attempt at sticking our big toe into the murky waters of politicized FOIA favoritism. In which case we have a firm starting line drawn in the stand instead of just a meager starting point.
But for the sake of keepin it real = Chances our this initial filing is just for lulz of shining the light of day on the fact that everybody prefers to ignore the issues surrounding the cult of Scientology. Besides, if u see lions - suggest you get in the car, nevermind the unicorn.
So we say to our chanology brothers - SUNSHINE WEEK FTW!!1! **Let the IRL Raids & Pooning begin!!
Also - Lookout IRS & Senator Grassley... HERE WE COME!!!!!!!!!!!! Plox Let the Sunshine In or else moar FOIA related faggotry will ensue on a larger scale.
Sunshine and lollipops for ALL! Which of you glorious bastards are bringing the caek?

Hubbard's birthday coincidentally falls on the first day of Sunshine Week - Sunday March 13th. We have challenged the IRS to release the dox by the end of Sunshine Week. So plox consider adopting the adlib theme of sunshine & lollipops = tax the cult into your existing LRH birthday festivities on the weekend before Sunshine Week.
Consider having a rally outside of your local IRS offices, OR outside of your American Embassy from other lands abroad, at the end of the Sunshine Week - Saturday March 19th. Use sunshine and lollipops to target the general public with raising awareness of Scientology's special tax breaks.
You can even haz pretty flyer/poster/sign template, compliments of xenubarb - just add text that suits your needs:
CHALLENGE: +10 internets to the first faggot to show up in a vid wearing a Jimmy Dean's breakfast shining sun or similar costume and licking a gigantic lollipop. (RIF & Glibby: we're looking at you babe)
Yes themes are gay. And so is the IRS so its all good. And this is a call for an adlib wing-it theme for general lulzy faggotry of epic proportions while spreading the word of "tax the cult". Do with it what you will - Sunshine & Lollipops For ALL! FTW!!1!

Go Protest the IRS (or US Embassy) and let them know we think their gay - like sunshine & lollipops - and that its time to give up the dox!

sunshineweek.org wrote: What is Sunshine Week?
Sunshine Week is a national initiative to promote a dialogue about the importance of open government and freedom of information. Participants include news media, civic groups, libraries, nonprofits, schools and others interested in the public's right to know.
Sunshine Week as a national effort is spearheaded by the American Society of News Editors. The key funder has been the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, with significant support from ASNE Foundation. In 2011, The Gridiron Club and Foundation contributed $10,000.
Though created by journalists, Sunshine Week is about the public's right to know what its government is doing, and why.
Sunshine Week seeks to enlighten and empower people to play an active role in their government at all levels, and to give them access to information that makes their lives better and their communities stronger.
Sunshine Week is a nonpartisan, non-profit initiative.
How did Sunshine Week begin?
Like many families, Sunshine Week's grandfather lives in Florida.
The Florida Society of Newspaper Editors launched Sunshine Sunday in 2002 in response to efforts by some Florida legislators to create scores of new exemptions to the state's public records law. FSNE estimates that some 300 exemptions to open government laws were defeated in the legislative sessions that followed its three Sunshine Sundays, because of the increased public and legislative awareness that resulted from the Sunshine Sunday reports and commentary.
Several states followed Florida's lead, and in June 2003, ASNE hosted a Freedom of Information Summit in Washington where the seeds for Sunshine Week were planted. (For more about the origins of Sunshine Week, read online the article "Sunshine Sunday: Making the Case for Open Access" in the January-February 2005 issue of The American Editor.)
With an inaugural grant from Knight Foundation, ASNE launched Sunshine Week in March 2005. It continues to be celebrated each year in mid-March, coinciding with National FOI Day and James Madison's birthday on March 16.
