HAS ANYONE CALLED OPRAH about this case YET??
During the past few days I've been in touch with Oprah, Anderson Cooper & other TV and radio programs and have submitted letters to the editor and Op-Ed pieces to a number of newspapers. So far, I'm striking out. The response goes something like this: We know that Scientology is a nutty, money-hungry, power-hungry cult that harasses its critics - that's old news. Unless it's something big like the TomKat wedding, we're not really interested.

On the one hand, that's good! It means people get what CoS is about.
On the other hand, it's not so good - it doesn't help Keith.

I will keep trying. And certainly it may help if others also contact radio & TV programs and write letters to the editor.

Well done for trying, Songbird. Keep at it.
The angle is more than just the persecution of one man. It is also the corruption of the justice system and the erosion of personal freedom by using a twisted law which should never have come into being in the first place and by a "religion" that hires ex-mafia lawyers and, in the processs, forces its flock to lie and threaten.

Thanks! This is not going to be good PR!

Interesting: 53,000 scientologists on a population of 268,000,000. That is less than 1 on every 5000 Americans. :D

The fight is by no means over. I've been trying to email all of you
on my list separately, but I'm losing that battle, what with my 2 jobs
and being ill this past week. We're seeing Keith's lawyer soon so
we'll be prepared for the March 5 hearing.

I've taken custody of the $5,000 raised for Keith through the
Extropian list but haven't extracted anything from it for the $5,000
bail or the attorney fees so far. We really appreciate the money, and
I'm hanging onto it as a local source of money for paying lawyer
bills, fees, whatever is necessary for Keith's legal expenses.

And we really appreciate all the efforts to let the public know what
is happening. Keith heard that there have been over 1,000 contacts
(email, telephone, letters) going to the office of the Governor of
Arizona. His plight has been mentioned on the Vince Daniels show, and
there have been myriad blogs and articles on the Web.

Especially during the weekend that Keith was in jail I received many
calls and emails, including phone calls from people I hadn't heard
from in years. It was an outpouring of kindness and compassion that
helped me cope despite the fact of being alone.

Keith expressed his gratitude to those on the Extropian list who
helped raise funds and otherwise help as follows:

"Please excuse my ignorance of the details of last weekend re the fund
> raising for my bail and legal expenses. Little problem with not much
> communication while in jail, and the backlog of list postings and email may
> be beyond ever catching up with.
>
> Natasha of course created the fund in the middle of ExI shutting down and
> used ExI's good reputation for the campaign. Robert Bradbury, Amara Graps,
> PJ, Jay, and many, many others were instrumental. If I didn't mention you,
> it isn't because I don't appreciate your efforts. Don't hesitate to take
> credit, either here or in private email.
>
> Anyway, a major thanks to all of you!"

He asked me to extend his gratitude to you as well.

I've been forwarding email that some of you sent me, so he has some
idea of what was done while he was in jail, but this has been a
disorganized effort on my part, and Keith is overwhelmed with email
and having trouble with one email account. He's been writing a paper
for a conference, trying to catch up with email and all the blogs and
lists and other stuff about him, while keeping the place where we live
warm and repaired, and being supportive of my working (preparing
meals, etc.). I've suggested that one way Keith might extend his
thanks to those outside the Extropian list would be to write a note of
thanks and request that it be posted on the "Operating Thetan" Web
site at www.operatingthetan.com

I see from looking at that page that the Extropian fund link is still
active, so I'm going to see what I can do to have that link removed
and update the page. (By gosh, though, I'm the last person on the
planet who should complain that someone is behind in doing something!)

We are desperately hoping that there will be no occasion for news
unless it's interviews or rehashing of what has passed until the
hearing on March 5. It'll be interesting to see what the
$cientologists, through their henchmen and henchwomen (homage to
"Johnny Dangerously") at the County of Riverside, try to put over at
that time. If I'm at all able to do so, I'll let you know what
happens at that hearing as soon as I possibly can.

Until then, I'll continue trying to communicate with each of you
personally, express our gratitude for your efforts, and let you know
how much what you have done and are doing means to me--personally.

With many, many thanks to each and every one of you, and to those you
have contacted to spread the word--whose names I might not even know.

Arel

Additional support would make additional efforts in
Keith Henson's quest for truth in what is left of
america's justice system more probable.

Use the secure paypal link on the SEARCH PAGE at
Lermanet.com Exposing the CON.
Specify HENSON DEFENSE FUND in your payment
and my account takes Visa MC etc.

Many hands make a lighter load

Arnie I would love to put your info for raising money for Keith Henson.
That is really cool how you are helping him so much and getting everyone else to help out with it too. I would love to put it on the front page of factnet.org so they can donate money to help Keith Henson's fight.
Keep telling the true harms of scientology and lets help to put a stop to this Evil NAZI CULT Scientology . IMHO Tommy Gorman

Great that Keith is out! :D - Even better that the local authorities looks to have seen through the scam.

Is there any way to make Swifts handgrenade report rock solid and irrefutable? - Anyone else at that event, who can authenticate?

Problem I see is that the cult will simply say that it's a lie. Indeed, I foresee that they can muster 200 people who were all at the event, saying that 'of course there was no such thing as a handgrenade display. We're a real civilized religion and Miscavige is such a nice man and would never use retoric like that'

Update: Thank's Bird. That event in London and their own anti psych DVD indeed shows the pattern.

I was at the New Years event in Boston(Brighton)
I can confirm, that was included in the wonderful <Ahem> 4 hour movie.

I posted a blog about Keiths case, on Hbo's Real time with Bill Maher website. Please search and add to it.
I also posted a question to Mr. Maher about it, which he did not answer on his aftershow, webcast.
Arnie- Thanks for the good news.
I await your e-mail late spring.

1. What 'church'? It isn't even a religion.
2. Sanctified!?!?!?! Gold Base is nothing more than a propaganda machine for a cult.
3. Gold Base is looking more and more like a ghost town to me.
4. There is no use in picketing Gold Base because of lack of exposure…nothing but locals who are involved or could care less drive by.

Nothing gets under my skin more than referring to $cientology as a church or religion. EVERYTHING $cientology puts money into is ALL about getting more money out...period. There is no denying that.

Sorry guys, just a newbie here, ignore my little rant. Just a little annoyed by this poodle.

If the critics had any power at all (which they don't) they would have
done this YEARS ago.

Besides, they can't even get a large group of people to even bother
to show up at Hemet.

Scientology is impregnable. Hemet is sacred ground.

Worry not my friend. If referring to $cientology as a religion gets under your skin .. then you’ve come to the right place.

Welcome.

:) Nope, not gonna ignore you. I especially look forward to hearing from new So Cal critics.
Welcome to OCMB HemetDude and don't worry about the poodle yapping at your ankles ...just be glad he's not humping your leg! (..yet!:shock:)

Firstly, welcome to Operation Clambake Message Board on Xenu.net.

Judging by your nickname and when you say that Gold Base is looking more and more like a ghost town, can I take it that you live near there or drive by often? If so, it would be interesting to hear any reports/observations you have of clam activity in your locale.

I'm not sure I agree with you regardng the picketing of Gold Base. Picketing is not just about demonstrating to the public/media but also making those aware on the inside that there are people on the outside that care about what is going on.
In the past whenever there has been a picket, even a sole picketer, it causes a major flap for them. They hold onto staff and stop the busloads of $cientologists from going in and out to prevent them from seeing the truth. If a picket causes just one $cientologist, even the CCTV operator who certainly is watching, to have doubts then it is worthwhile.
Keith Henson is possibly looking at jail time because he merely exercised his right to picket passively and peacefully.

You got everything else right though, plus I would add the words "mental and physical abuse", "Lies", "Criminal" and "corruption" to the mix of $cientology deeds as well.

BTW, The pitbull persona(s) is the resident "$cientology Brochure", also with a penchant for racist and sexist remarks, and as you may already have gathered, he is here to attempt to divert attention from the real subject. Some find him annoying and have him in their Ignore filter but others find him to be the perfect example of an arrested mind and enjoy being given such easy opportunities to point out the abuses and lies of $cientology.

Thanks for the welcome, and I am writing up a little introduction of myself, I will post in another place a little later. I don't want to take away from this thread by getting too far off topic here. I will undoubtedly include answers to your questions there.
