Dorothy, that is just stunning news on Captain Debbie Cook. I stand corrected. I got the impression from the blog of a former IG/RTC that D. Cook had related details to him. Perhaps said former IG/RTC is third partying Captain Cook?
There are so many former, or apparently former, CoS players with other fish to fry. I reported some time ago that Mary DeMoss Panton had left CoS only to be corrected: No Mary is still in. She is just not on post in CCHR. Now, Debbie Cook and her husband Mr. Debbie Cook seem to be in fine fettle.
Perhaps I am right: Perhaps DM has sent his people into the Scientology Diaspora to reconnect with doctrinaire Scientologists before the TPark's and the Marty's of the world get to them? I say this because the SD is linked by blood and business to Scientologists who are still in. It could be that the SD is where the future of CoS is decided. The SD is the swing vote, so to speak.
If I were DM, I could see deploying D. Cook into SD circles to recover all of my ethics particles by use of love-bombing. If D. Cook had the informal power to lift SP Declares, this would bypass the IJC and allow SD's with cash to route back onto Basics at Flag. DM has made doing the Basics a precondition of routing back onto lines. In this scenario, D. Cook's stature as the former Captain of Flag who is still in good standing makes her far more powerful than Marty in the eyes of many in the Scientology Diaspora. I would not be surprised if D. Cook is a part of DM's strategic effort to save CoS from collapse. The big question then becomes one of an SD Recovery effort. Marty Rathbun is extremely viable against DM and his SD Recovery effort. DM knows it. Suddenly, one can understand why Marty is posting about Debbie's alleged humiliation at Int Base. He needs to put that incident onto SD radars to counter Debbie's FSM efforts.
If I were DM, I might well deploy D. Cook to out create former RTC execs. Short term, DM needs an "Ultimate Upstat" out in the field -- even if it means holding his nose and putting Harvey Jacques in Debbie's old post. I mean, it's not like DM has a deep bench these days. Further, DM has to find those 1,000 people to staff Super Power. Which is why someone like a Debra Cook might be the Uber-FSM who could flow ethics particles, publics, and new SO recruits into Super Power and the newly remodeled Fort Homicide. Scientology is, after all, bodies in the shop.
Marty could be resorting to his hardline doctrinal stance because Dave is outplaying him once again. Although he is a raging psychotic, Dave's money buys a lot of Free Theta, PR, and forgiveness. Money makes many people Tone 40. Money is the lubrication of Homo Novis. For enough money, Hubbard himself would come back from Target Two just to roll naked in all of that phat wog cash!
In religion, people are swayed by either doctrinal purity or money. Marty is the aggrieved "Preacher of Righteousness" appealing to the thetan's sense of justice and high-minded ideals. Conversely, DM's Flag has fat, overstuffed chairs, Class VIII auditors, scuba diving excursions, case cracking, and a theta environment. How can Marty counter the creature comforts and narcissistic pleasures of Flag except by preaching an Underdog Gospel in which the question is this: Who loves Mr. Hubbard more? Marty or Dave? In this drama, Dave is the rich Pharisee and Marty is the Scientology Jesus.
What theatrics! Here is the "Dave and Marty Show" at present:
Scientology is just so unbelievably strange and lunatic:
For the next twelve hours Debbie was made to stand in a large garbage can and face one hundred people screaming at her demanding a confession as to her “homosexual tendancies”. While this was going on water was poured over her head. Signs were put around Debbie’s neck, one marked in magic marker “LESBO” while this torture proceeded.
There are certain things which make people ill and that is when they get into certain zones and areas or positions which approximate the R6 position such as a body lying in the rain with a rat below the crotch. Guaranteed to give people colds and so forth. So they had colds from rain, yet, they take baths and get wet and don't get colds. When they get cold, it restimulates frozen alcohol and glycol, as a mix. And therefore they get into a dramatization, so that sickness is very closely tied in with R6. "
