That was disturbing and, I think, ultimately therapeutic.
Wieber, that is very well said.
And now you know why I supported this show so much after I found out that Tom was interviewing Bill Franks. And after I heard the final cut for this show I knew that this information just had to get out.
I have a number of times announced Tom's shows as coming out the following Friday. A couple of the last ones I announced with some big names like David Love ended up being DDOSed the first night.
In speaking with Tom about this, Tom asked and I agreed to not name who was going to be on in the hopes this show would not also get DDOSed. Tom put in a teaser and we both suspected that OSA would be going crazy trying to find out who would be on the show. We suspected they would guess incorrectly. They might even think we were just playing with them and not try to stop the show as I really think they would if they knew it was Bill Franks.
While personally I hate, hate, hate having to post like "oh I know something and you don't and it's amazing nah nah nah", I really, really wanted people to have access to this information. So I pushed the show to people on four forums suggesting that they watch it and just trust me that it will be good (at least for most of us).
And, most importantly, I hoped it might help some people to heal.
I personal can verify some of the things Bill talked about. I was his escort in that huge attorney meeting he spoke about in 1981.
When he talked about taking over the GO and running it earlier in 1981 I was also there as well. I sat in the Office of the Controller in LA then working on the corporate sortout eval and watched Bill and the people under him put the new controller staff through hell. He fully controlled them. I saw old controller staff like Jimmy and Anne Mulligan on the decks and Franks running the newly appointed ones like Byrnes over Legal, Debbie whats her name over PR, Gorden Cook as the new Controller, etc.
Anyway, I'm really glad Tom Smith and Bill Franks did this.
As more people try to spread the "L Ron Hubbard is wonderful" line, and I guess at least one new book will be pushing that line soon, I wanted to help get out some of this information about Hubbard as it just needs to be known. Things like how he backstabbed others, how he set up his wife to go to jail to protect himself, how he was in fact behind the GO dirty tricks including what was done to Paulette Copper, etc.
I estimate that I have had over 250 orders from Hubbard and have posted about him before. What Bill has said about Hubbard in this show is completely consistant with the Hubbard I knew through his orders to me.
The more truth out, the better.
