A Message From Debbie Cook the Captain Flag Service Org

               Dear friends! Happy New Year!

I am starting the New Year 2012 with the latest from Debbie Cook the former Flag Captain.

Here are Debbie and husband Wayne Baumgarten taken this last Xmas

I have just learned that Debbie Cook allegedly sent this message to approximately twelve thousand OT Scientologists, yes,  you read correctly; 12,000 scientologists around the world. 

I don’t know if this is true, but it is still a very well written letter with a lot of VALID references.

 If this message comes from her, then she is very brave for asking scientologists to stop donating to the IAS and any other Scientology fundraisings as well as exposing the truth about what is happening in upper management. I wish that she had done this 20 years ago.

                                            Message from Debbie Cook

Dear friend,

I am emailing you as a friend and fellow Scientologist. As we enter a new year, it is hoped that 2012 can be a year of great dissemination and a year of real progress up The Bridge for all Scientologists.

Although I am not in the Sea Org right now, I served in the Sea Org at Flag for 29 years. 17 of those years were as Captain FSO. I am a trained auditor and C/S as well as an OEC, FEBC and DSEC.

I am completely dedicated to the technology of Dianetics and Scientology and the works of LRH. I have seen some of the most stunning and miraculous results in the application of LRH technology and I absolutely know it is worth fighting to keep it pure and unadulterated.

My husband and I are in good standing and we are not connected with anyone who is not in good standing. We have steadfastly refused to speak to any media, even though many have contacted us.

But I do have some very serious concerns about out-KSW that I see permeating the Scientology religion.

I have the utmost respect for the thousands of dedicated Scientologists and Sea Org members. Together, we have come through everything this world could throw at us and have some real impingement on the world around us. I am proud of our accomplishments and I know you are too. However there is no question that this new age of continuous fundraising is not our finest moment.

LRH says in HCO PL 9 Jan 51, An Essay on Management, “drop no curtains between the organization and the public about anything.” -LRH

Based on this policy I am communicating to you about some situations that we need to do something about within our religion, within our group.
Actions that are either not covered in policy or directly violate LRH policy and tech include:

* The extreme over-regging and fund-raising activities that have become so much a part of nearly every Sea Org org and Class V org as well as every “OT Committee” is not covered anywhere in LRH policy.

* Hardworking Sea Org members and the dedicated staff of orgs around the world aren’t choosing to do these actions. Nor are the OTs.

I am sure they would be more than happy if they could just get on with direct dissemination of Scientology as they have done for so many years.

But the truth is that this is being driven from the very highest echelons within the Scientology structure and clearly there is a lot of pressure to make targets that are being set.

* The IAS: The IAS was created unbeknownst to LRH in 1984 by Marc Yager and David Miscavige.

This was supposed to be based on LRH policies on the subject of membership and the HASI, however the IAS is nothing like the membership system described by LRH which only has two memberships and is covered in HCO PL 22 March 1965 “Current Promotion and Org Program Summary, Membership Rundown” and states:

“There are two memberships…”- LRH

LRH lists there the INTERNATIONAL ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP and gives its cost at 10 pounds sterling or $30 US. He also lists a LIFETIME MEMBERSHIP which is priced at $75 US. There are no other memberships or statuses approved or known to LRH.

* Furthermore, membership monies are supposed to go directly to the org where the membership is signed up, and the money used for dissemination by that org, in that area. This is covered in HCOPL 1 Sept 1965R Membership Policies.
“It all goes into the HCO Book Account in the area where the membership is brought and is not part of the organization’s weekly gross income. Membership monies go to dissemination”.- LRH

* Currently membership monies are held as Int reserves and have grown to well in excess of a billion dollars.

Only a tiny fraction has ever been spent, in violation of the policy above.

Only the interest earned from the holdings have been used very sparingly to fund projects through grants.

In fact many of the activities you see at IAS events are not actually funded by the IAS, but rather by the Scientologists involved.

* Think about it, how many ads disseminating Scientology, Dianetics or any Scn affiliated programs have you seen on TV? Heard on the radio? Seen in newspapers? I haven’t seen one in the 4 years I have lived in San Antonio, Texas, the 7th largest city in the US. How many have you seen?

* Donating anything more than a lifetime membership to the IAS is not based on LRH policy.

The article “What Your Donations Buy” (The Auditor, The Monthly Journal of Scientology No. 51, 1970) is clearly talking about how the church uses your donations for Dianetics and Scientology services.

* Next time you are asked to donate outside of services, realize that you are engaged in fundraising and ask to see something in writing from L. Ron Hubbard that this is something he expects from you as a Scientologist.

New Org Buildings:

* LRH also never directed the purchase of opulent buildings or the posh renovations or furnishings for every org.

In fact, if you read HCO PL 12 March 75 Issue II, “The Ideal Org”, which is what this program has been called, and nowhere in it will you find 20 million dollar buildings or even any reference to the poshness of org premises at all as part of LRH’s description of an “Ideal Org”.

Instead, an Ideal Org was one that delivered and moved people up The Bridge – something that is not part of this “Ideal Org” program.

LRH says in the PL that an Ideal Org: “would be clean and attractive enough not to repel its public” – LRH. This is all it says about the state of the building.

* As a result of this off-policy alteration of the Ideal Org PL, we have the majority of top OTs, now deemed “OT Ambassadors”, heavily engaged in fund-raising activities that include “bingo”, “pirate dinners”, “knitting classes”, “hay rides”, and many other activities strictly revolving around raising funds for the required multi-millions of dollars to fund their “Ideal Org”.

As part of this, people around every org are now asked to donate to their local “Ideal Org” instead of their own services or their own Bridge.
LRH says in HCO PL Org Ethics and Tech:

“GET RID OF DISTRACTIONS FROM SCIENTOLOGY in your org. Baby-sitting or raffle tickets and such nonsense.”
* Yet these distractions are rampant as they are being used as fund-raisers to get money for the huge quotas being issued to fund the “Ideal Org”.

“If the org slumps… don’t engage in ‘fund-raising’ or ‘selling postcards’ or borrowing money.
Just make more income with Scientology.

It’s a sign of very poor management to seek extraordinary solutions for finance outside Scientology. It has always failed.”

“For orgs as for pcs, ‘Solve It With Scientology’.

“Every time I myself have sought to solve financial or personnel in other ways than Scientology I have lost out. So I can tell you from experience that org solvency lies in more Scientology, not patented combs or fund-raising barbeques.”
HCO PL 24 February 1964, Issue II, Org Programming, (OEC Vol. 7, p. 930)

The point is that Scientologists and OT’s need to be training, auditing and disseminating to raw public- not regging each other or holding internal fundraisers.

                                                         Out Tech:

 * Over the last few years we have seen literally hundreds and hundreds of people who were validated as clear using the CCRD as developed by LRH now being told they are not Clear.

This included hundreds of OTs who were then put onto NED as a “handling”. LRH clearly forbid any Dianetics to be run on OTs in HCOB “Dianetics Forbidden on OTs”.

 This is out tech.

This entire technical “handling” was directed personally by COB RTC and was done on thousands of OTs.

But it was based not on an LRH HCO Bulletin, but rather based on a single C/S instruction where LRH C/Sed one pre-OT who had not achieved the state of clear but was mid OT III and not making it.

LRH directed a solo handling that the pre-OT was to do to get himself to achieve the state of Clear.

This LRH C/S taken out of context was then used to implement a technical handling that was in direct violation of an LRH HCOB.

* This and other “technical handlings” done on Solo NOTs auditors created great expense and hardship on Solo NOTs auditors around the world as they were made to do these handlings to continue on the level.

* Then there are the “fast grades at Flag” that no other org has.

How can it be that Flag has been delivering grades differently to the rest of the world for the last 3 years?

Whatever the problem is, the fact is that having “fast Grades” at Flag creates a hidden data line and is a HIGH CRIME and the subject of an entire policy letter called “TECH DEGRADES” which LRH has placed at the start of every Scientology course.

* More recently the fad seems to be that nearly everyone needs to “re-do their Purif and do a long objectives program”, including many OTs mid Solo NOTs.
* There is nothing wrong with doing objectives, but it is a clear violation of HCOB ‘MIXING RUNDOWNS AND REPAIRS” to have a person mid a rundown or OT level be taken off it and placed on an objectives program.

* Solo NOTs auditors are also being made to get their objectives from a Class IX auditor at great expense as they are not being allowed to co-audit.

* Flag has made many millions of dollars on the above listed out tech handlings because:

 OTs mid Solo NOTs are forced to get these out-tech actions to be able to get back onto and stay on the level and complete it. Not to mention the spiritual effects of the out tech that this has on each OT.

* I myself was subject to these out tech “handlings”, including extensive FPRD mid Solo NOTs. It took its toll in many ways, including physical situations I am still dealing with today. So I have some reality of the hardship caused.

                                               LRH Command Structure

* LRH left us with a complex and balanced command structure, with our orgs led by the Office of ED International.

This office was considered so important that LRH created a special management group called the Watch Dog Committee whose only purpose was to see that this office and the other needed layers of management existed.

* LRH ED 339R speaks of this extensively as the protection for our Church.

But these people are missing.

And not just some.

As of just a few years ago there were no members of the office of ED Int on post, not to mention top execs throughout the International Management structure.

You may have also wondered… where is Heber, the President of the Church?

What about Ray Mitthoff, Senior C/S International, the one that LRH personally turned over the upper OT Levels to?

How about Norman Starkey, LRH’s Trustee?

What happened to Guillaume – Executive Director International?

And Marc Yeager, the WDC Chairman?

What happened to the other International Management executives that you have seen at events over the years? 

                                      The truth

Is that I spent weeks working in the empty International Management building at Int.

Empty because everyone had been removed from post.

When I first went up lines I was briefed extensively by David Miscavige about how bad all of them were and how they had done many things that were all very discreditable.

This seemed to “explain” the fact that the entirety of the Watchdog Committee no longer existed.

The entirety of the Executive Strata, which consisted of ED International and 11 other top International executives that were the top executives in their particular fields, no longer existed. That the Commodore’s Messenger Org International no longer existed.

     All of these key command structures of Scientology International, put there by LRH, had been removed.

* There were hundreds and hundreds of unanswered letters and requests for help from org staff, written based on LRH ED 339R where LRH says that staff can write to these top executives in the Exec Strata for help.

* But this is not possible if all these execs have been removed and no one is there to help them or to get evaluations and programming done to expand Scientology.

* Well, after that I got to spend some quality time with Heber, Ray Mithoff, Norman Starkey, Guillaume, as well as the entirety of International Management at the time, who were all off post and doing very long and harsh ethics programs.

*  These have gone on for years and to the only result of that they are still off post. There is no denying that these top executives have all gradually disappeared from the scene. You don’t see them at the big events anymore or on the ship at Maiden Voyage.

* David Miscavige has now become the “leader” of the Scientology religion.

* Yet what LRH left behind was a huge structure to properly manage all aspects of the Scientology religion.

* He put a complete and brilliant organizational structure there, not one individual.

* There never was supposed to be a “leader” other than LRH himself as the goal maker for our group.

* There is a situation here and even if you have not been to the International Management Base you should be able to see that over regging and frequent tech changes are not OK and you have a responsibility to do something to Keep Scientology Working.

* You should be able to find and read the references on membership in OEC Volume 6. Find and read the HCO PL entitled “The Ideal Org” (Data Series 40).

* Find and read the references on org buildings, including HCO PL 24 Aug 65 II, Cleanliness of Quarters and Staff, Improve our Image. Also, HCO PL 17 June 69, The Org Image.

If you don’t want to make waves or put yourself in danger of being taken off the level or denied eligibility, then there are some simple things you can do:

First and foremost

* Withdraw your support from off policy actions.

* Stop donating to anything other than your own services and actual Bridge progress.

* Simply demand to see an LRH reference that says you are required to make other such donations.

          No one will be able to produce any references because there aren’t any.

* Stop supporting any of the activities that are being done to forward off-policy fund-raising in your area.

                                     LRH says what he expects of a Scientologist

– That is what he expects you to do. In fact he put it in HCOB 10 June 1960 Issue I, Keeping Scientology Working Series 33, WHAT WE EXPECT OF A SCIENTOLOGIST. Read it and follow it.

* The other thing you can do is to send this email to as many others as you can, even if you do it anonymously.

* Please keep this email among us, the Scientologists. The media have no place in this.

You may wonder why I have not written a KR and gone about my business.

The answer is, I have. But there is no longer anyone to send that KR to.

* But you can and should write reports and bring off-policy to the attention of local org executives and local Sea org members.

We are a strong and powerful group and we can affect a change. We have weathered many storms. I am sorry that I am the one telling you, but a new storm is upon us. Its waves are already in the media and the world around us.

The truth is that as a Scientologist you are more able, more perceptive and have a higher integrity. Scientology is supposed to make you “think for yourself” and never compromise your own integrity. And most certainly LRH held every Scientologist responsible to KEEP SCIENTOLOGY WORKING.

I am not trying to do anything other than affect a change in serious off policy actions occurring. My husband and I have most of our family and many many good friends who are Scientologists.

I have not been real interested in sticking my neck out like this. However, I also know that I dedicated my entire adult life to supporting LRH and the application of LRH technology and if I ever had to look LRH in the eye I wouldn’t be able to say I did everything I could to Keep Scientology Working if I didn’t do something about it now.

We all have a stake in this. It is simply not possible to read the LRH references and not see the alterations and violations that are currently occurring.

You have a very simple obligation to LRH. Don’t participate in anything off policy, and let others know they should not either.

If every person who reads this email does nothing more than step back from off-policy actions we would have changed direction.

If we took all that energy and directed it into auditing, training and raw public dissemination, we would be winning.
And that is what I wish for you and all of us as we ring in this new year.


Debbie Cook

Here is a statement where she answers to her friends who asked her if she indeed is the author of such email.

Debbie Jean Cook: Dear Friends, Yes, the email was written by me. No I am not connected to anyone not in good standing. I did it because of my love and respect for LRH and the desire to see us correct situations that need correcting within our group

  2. I’m glad Debbie found the strength to do what needed to be done.

    Tim H.

    • She now needs to find the strenght to confront her participation on the game and take more responsibility and continue denouncing the illegal activities of David Miscavige and hopefully she would bring out information that leads to some arrests.

      • Yes, I agree. Debbie does have a level of responsibility in this herself.

        Yes, I hope she does bring out information that will lead to some arrests.

        But I will have to see it to believe it.

        We can’t sit and wait for Marty Rathbun or Mike Rinder to do so because their speaking to the authorities about Miscavige’s activities may lead to their arrest for taking part in it. Which could be the reason they don’t.

        I asked Mike Rinder once on Marty’s blog whether he knew enough to put Miscavige in jail and he said “yes”.

        When I asked him why he doesn’t, I got some weird miss-directional answer asking me if I was trying to get him to show his hand. I can give links if you want.

        Tim H.

        • Yes, Debbie, Marty, Mike and many more, at the level of EDs of orgs and Missions as well, the whole system got contaminated.

          they all contributed to the downfall of Scientology, David Miscavige did not do it alone of course, he’s not capable really.

          I get emails with horror stories with staff abusing each other and the public from all over the world, they all have gone crazy!

          I would like to see those links that you mention about Marty, thank you.

          • Aida,

            Ok. Here’s the information and links.

            It was back in April 2010 under one of Marty’s posts
            titled: “MISCAVIGE MELTDOWN”.

            This particular post of his still holds the record of the most commented on with 791 and I know it had alot to do with the argument that went on for days between me, Rinder and Rathbun. I was posting under the name “Tim H”. Of course after that exchange, he booted me off but not before something interesting things come out and interesting questions were asked. Of course after a certain amount of back and forth, Marty’s buddies on the blog started to come to his defense and give me a hard time. Then he would give a response but then would blog my reply in moderation. When I was starting to make him look bad and he was starting to lose the arguments, he stopped playing fair.


            I asked this question:


            April 24, 2010 at 10:45 pm | Reply


            You stated in your above comments:

            “As for Marty and I creating a Frankenstein monster, I dont think we can claim sole credit for any monster”

            1. Who is trying to give you and Marty sole credit?

            Then you stated in your above comment: “In the above comment of mine, I did use the word “help” — deliberately.”

            Could you please show me where you used the word “help”? I could not find it.

            I then asked you: “Despite you and Marty being two of the top guys in the church of scientology, are you saying that in the last 20-30 years you and Marty Rathbun never once made a decision on your own or “called a shot”?”

            You then said: “Are you serious?”

            2. Have I given any indications that I was joking?

            Here’s one last question for you if you are up to it:

            3. Do you or Marty Rathbun have any information about David Miscavige that could be used to put him in jail?

            mjrinder | April 24, 2010 at 10:58 pm | Reply

            I’m up to it.

            1. You are
            2. Yes, by your question
            3. Yes

            Now, a question for you:

            Do you feel I owe you answers to your questions?

            And another one:


            Tim H. | April 24, 2010 at 11:32 pm | Reply

            Mike said: “Do you feel I owe you answers to your questions?”

            My answer: No

            If you don’t want to answer any of the questions I put up in the comments of Marty’s blog, you don’t have to but since I know you are a man of truth, why would you not want to?

            I asked the following question above: “Do you or Marty Rathbun have any information about David Miscavige that could be used to put him in jail?”

            Mike Rinder said: “yes”.

            Ok, that’s good. 🙂

            Since I know that you and Marty Rathbun are courageous big beings with the goal of saving Scientology, mankind and the planet from David Miscavige’s mismanagement and wouldn’t think for a second of putting your own necks over saving Scientology and mankind, why have you not already gone to the authorities and gotten him arrested?


            At his point Marty jumps in the middle of the discussion.

            Please refer to the link to Marty’s blog I provided to see the entire discussion to see Marty’s replies and Rinder’s dancing around the question, since I don’t want to copy and paste all of it here.

  3. With all the accusations against the church, not for the last 20 years, but the last 40 years (give or take), what makes anyone think that this is a “big blow” to DM? Not only can he deny much of this, but he can come up with a scheme to which most of it can be proven untrue. AND – THAT’s because there isn’t anyone to really investigate this out to its fullest extent. Who’s gonna do that but perhaps another insider who might blow the whistle – again. But it won’t stop DM from doing what he’s doing. Why? IMO, to a major degree, the State/Gov and Religious Rights have to maintain that they are separate. This goes into speculations as to the why, plus some history, however, there are religions which can “hide” behind these laws. It makes it that much more difficult to get things investigated and even if found to be somewhat guilty, tried and hung (so to speak). American rights seem to belong to the ideal governmental actions, whereas, Religious rights seems to be on their own. Technically speaking DM should have been put in jail a long time ago. From some of the stories I’ve heard so should some of the people in the S.O. before DM’s reign of power.

    While “whistle-blowing” does make more and more people aware of what is going on in the Church, at the same time, its like leaving a mild-mannered Hitler in charge of Scn. At least masses of people aren’t burnt in ovens or killed in large pits. However, to govern a whole organization with fear tactics, is by far the farthest thing from “being free”.

    Most “public” and also people in orgs in far away places have no idea what is actually going on behind the scenes, at the top. Their area runs okay for them and they have some miracles happening around them and for themselves, but they haven’t been in the trenches to see for themselves the polarity which exists.

    Maybe eventually, there will be people who come up with a totally different solution to the problem. I don’t believe that the church should ever be “salvaged” in itself. I think there are so many people leaving anyway, that a whole new organization can eventually be developed without the fear of being sued for lots of money over copyright issues.

    Its coming, IMO. There are a few pockets of people here and there who are developing small orgs – but I’m talking that eventually, there will be a few very large places and will grow and prosper the way Scn did back in the 50’s, 60’s, and part of 70’s.

    Them thar is my opinions!!

    Love, Lyn

  4. Cudgel the Clever

    DM is only following Hubbard:

    “THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN CONTROL PEOPLE IS TO LIE TO THEM. You can write that down in your book in great big letters. The only way you can control anybody is to lie to them.”

    – L. Ron Hubbard, Technique 88

    • You are taking what he said context without including the rest of what he said before and after that.

      Hubbard didn’t say that with the intent to teach people how to control other people but to enlighten people on a truth of why people lie.

  5. Believe in the tech, Not the people.

  7. katherine corriveau

    Wow guys really? Debbie shows no evidence of any of this. Her letter is nothing more than a natter and third party letter. What she writes is suppressive and all you guys agreeing, is also suppressive. I have written a standard KR to RTC. This is not OK!

    • Yes, I agree that there is no evidence of this, that is why I wrote “allegedly”….if you notice at the top of my comment.

      I am very happy that you have written a standard KR to RTC, problem is, the top honchos at RTC and OSA Int, are no longer in; they left years ago, there’s nobody home. Open your eyes.
      Since you are here perhaps you will like to check my videos on the Alterations of the Tech as well as read the article “Who Helped David Miscavige Take Over”.

      I also have a Spanish Blog:

    • Katherine, thanks for your great fairy tales:
      1) Post a copy of your report here on the blog.
      2) Fighting at the front lines is subjected to OSA staff or (by OSA) specifically selected publics ONLY.
      3) I suggest you learn the difference between NATTER and communicating DATA.
      Study and clay demo Data series 1-8, let me know what you found out, and let me know
      wether you found biting and sarcastic comments in Debbie´s letter, or any other (relevant) out-point.
      The only out-point I see so far is that YOU spread broadly generalized acusations.


      • Hi Sniper:
        1- I would be very happy to post such Report from Katherine Corriveau in my blog for the world to see.
        2- The behavior of OSA only shows us how vindictive the cult has become. The reason I got in Scientology was to achieve higher spiritual and ethical levels and I found that they are going on the oposite direction.
        3- Natter: Carping 1.1 criticism without merit. Ref: HCOB Justification, where LRH also mentions that there is merited criticism and it is accepted.

        An organization that does not accept any kind of criticism and does not accept that makes mistakes, becomes an evil destructive organization, and those members who accept that, are as guilty as them.

        I found that report about Flag from Debbie Cook or whoever wrote it, very merited. I would like to ask anyone who has any doubts who she is just google Debbie Cook Scientology for further info.

  8. Cudgel the Clever

    Thank you.

  9. As great as this is that someone is FINALLY coming forward to expose DM and his minions, this should have been written at least 25 years ago. The policy has always been there but how many chose to follow it?!!! The organization has been corrupt for a very long time and finally people are waking up to that fact?…..about bloody time!

    • I agree with you, but it is better late than never. Now, let’s wait and see what happens next.

      The SO has to get disbanded sooner or later.

      • You’re right Aida, I had so many years of frustration is all. I would love to see the SO disbanded and an investigation done on all the criminal activities that go on in the organization, they’ve been getting away with so much for years and years. But of course, due to the sheep paying into their war chest, they have very deep pockets of money now and it was all given to them willingly so it’ll be a long drawn out ordeal.

  10. Happy New Year Aida,
    Well lots of TA to start the year. Whether Or not she means everything or not , people will notice and start looking around.
    I did not get this e-mail from her so I’m not on her list.
    I have not heard anything from those I know still heavily on lines, so we will see.
    Have a great and productive year.
    Hope to see you soon,
    Miss you.

    • Happy New Year to you too my friend!

      People is noticing around and how! If you hear from anybody let me know.

      Thank you for your wonderful wishes and I hope to see you soon too.


  11. Courageous lady !
    My own intuition tells me this communication from Debbie is genuine . If she is sick today perhaps it’s because she starts confronting.

  12. Debbie`s message is what I consider to be a factual report. I hope her OL-status helps, so Scientologists start thinking, drawing conclusions and withdrawing all power from DM´s lines.
    2012 – implosion of SCN.

  13. Ing-Marie Lundberg

    Dear Aida!
    WONDERFUL news and thank you very much for informing us! Let us really hope that it is Debbie who has written it and also confirmed it on FB.T/AA is ALWAYS good…..!!:)

    Debbie wrote that if she ever will be able to look Ron into his eyes again, she must take responsibility for the Out-Tech and Out-Policy and also re the slavery within the Church she know about.

    I think this is a good start to rehabilitate her integrity and that will of course improve her physical condition too.

    As you said Aida, Debbie KNEW about all suppression within the Church for a long time and also partcipitated in all this, so she has a LOT more to take responsibility for and has to really make up for all the damage, she direct and indirect with her participitation of the suppression, caused so many, many scientologists during the years.

    BEFORE at least I have restored my ARC for her again and also feel respect for her! However Aida, THIS is a VERY GOOD start of the New Year! and her message was very well written! Let us ALL postulate that she continue to reveal things! Perhaps SHE she will be the one, who can kick out DM FOR EVER! 🙂


    • Yes, one thing that she did that it is VERY important is that she is making scientologists who are still lingering, confront the facts.

      I will wait and watch how the story develops and what step she will take next to really complete her Liability formula. So far excellent!

      Thanks for your comment my dear Ing-Marie.


  14. OMG!

    This is what the mayans where talking about all this time!

    2012 is the end of the world!

    At least to CofS world looks like…

    • Victor, just for the record. The apocalypse story about the mayan calendar is a blatant alteration and misinterpretation and consists of an added datum (a lie) . I know at least six peruvians in my circle of friends over here in Europe which are all upset by reading or hearing about this story. The naked truth is simply, that the mayans stopped writing their calendar because they found it to be unneccessary to look further into the future than 2012.

  15. Very courageous and timely.

  16. Great new start to 2012!~ I knew this was going to be a new, great year! Yes, this has gone
    “viral”…and the good news is you KNOW one way or another, Scientologists “in” will hear
    about it. Most are living what she speaks about. Often it’s just “the final straw”…and the best part is with “Social Media”, C of $/OSA can no longer “shove it under the rug”.

    Happy New Year to ALL 🙂 Tory/Magoo

    • Hi Tory:
      I got the news right at midnite and posted it right away in my blog and Facebook and it suddenly went viral. I just saw the news this morning at Tony Ortega’s blog as well.

      Happy New Year my friend!

  17. This email is going viral. It is doubtful, that by the end of the day, there will be any scientologists that aren’t living in caves that haven’t seen of heard about it.

    A very interesting beginning to the new year. My hat is off to her for doing this.

    • Hi Ann:
      My hats off to her too. This is spreading like wildfire, my blog has the highest stats ever! I posted this last night right around midnite.
      Thanks for the comment.

  18. Debbie Cook has been seriously physically ill for some years now. Perhaps she realized that the suppression in the C of $ had something to do with it. I hope she’s on her way to a full recovery, starting with her whistleblower email.

    She must be strong now because she will be declared but she must think of the sanity of Scientology parishioners she is helping to recover by her actions. Many Scios will turn against her but they, too, will wake up one day…

    • Hi songbird;
      I am sorry to hear that she is ill, all of those years in the SO can make someone ill.

      At least she is finally speaking up and that is very commendable. Yes, she will wake up a lot of people and those who don’t it is their own punishment for lack of personal integrity. I am sure that having done this is starting to heal for her and many others.

    • Does it really mean anything to be declared suppressive by suppressives?

      Tim H.

      • Hi Tim:
        So glad that you bring the question up. Of course not. And since the CofS is being run by SPs whatever they say does not count anymore.

        To all those Ex-SOs who have any doubts, please do not pay your “freeloader” debt, it makes no sense, it is out exchange plus you contribute even more to the insane cult.

  19. If this actually went out to 12,000 Scientologists, it is a constructive way for them to make a difference by asking for references when demands are off policy, and only doing actions that are about giving and receiving standard Tech. She doesn’t give the time frame of when she was able to talk to the top people who were taken off post and are on very long ethics cycles. How will her message get to them?

    • Dear friend, this means that everybody learned about this and they will have to make a mass ethics handling and all of the staff will know what happened too! Good move on her part!

  20. You know, I just re-posted her letter on my blog to my son, and I asked him to consider the “hard” questions here…….if the “insiders” continue to shun everyone who speaks out, who will be the last man standing?

    So now Debbie Cook will be featured in the organization’s “dead agent” materials! There will be booklets issues from the inside exposing all of her confidential session/ethics data and every error or mistake she ever made! (Like they did to all of us who stood up!)

    She will now be featured in the Freedom Magazine! Guaranteed. They will twist it up and make it look like any mistake she ever made was intended. I’m positive it will contain more lies than truth, as I have not seen one yet that didn’t! She’ll be ripped to shreds by the organization.

    LOL, now all the “insiders” who don’t follow her in this “protest” will be instructed not to associate with her in any form going forward!

    I asked my son to consider those he highly respects who are currently running “his” org. I asked him to consider what Debbie just said, then think of those he respects, like Matt Hanses, Chad Lane, Barry Coziahr – if any one of those finally saw the light and followed Debbie Cook out the door and to the carpet to call out the situation – what would he do?

    What would he now think? Would he blindly just believe the goldenrods telling how evil they are?

    Would he believe that it is now officially wrong for him to ever speak to, say Matt Hanses or Chad again?

    OMG – who will be the last man standing!!!?

    If everyone on the inside turns their back on those who are standing up for LRH, who will be left?

    I ask you….who will be left to follow?

  21. Debbie shook my hand every time I graduated a course in my Flag training. I could see something brewing with her then. (2005/2006) She did not appear comfortable with what she was helping to perpetuate.

    Whatever her reasons for writing this now, rather than sooner, I say first message in the New Year is perfect timing.

    • Debbie was part of the criminal group inside the SO, only she knows to what extent, but this is her first step to recover herself as a thetan.

      Happy New Year and may more come out and speak until the whole thing is gone.

  22. Do you remember Aida, the enormous pressure that Joan Wood, the Clearwater Medical Examiner, was put under by the Church of Scientology to change her conclusions regarding the cause of death of Lisa McPherson? They crushed her. That is the same pressure that Debbie Cook will be under. The Church will make sure that Debbie recants and insist that her heartfelt story was a hoax. I won’t believe that, nor will many others.

    Galileo was forced to recant heliocentrism but the earth does revolve around the sun. David Miscavige, though less physically imposing than Pope Urban VIII still has a powerful punch! Cuando la fuerza manda, la ley calla.

    Lots of love


    • She can no longer recant. She has just posted it from her FB account confirming it is from her. But she can always allege it was hacked…I guess.
      But I am going to give her the benefit of the doubt.

    • “That is the same pressure that Debbie Cook will be under. The Church will make sure that Debbie recants and insist that her heartfelt story was a hoax.”

      Want to make a bet?

      Debbie Cook isn’t Joan Wood and this isn’t 1995.

      • Atcause, I am still waiting to see what is Debbie going to do next after seeing the huge effect that she has caused. We have to remember that she was one of the most trusted members of David Miscavige’s inner circle and she regged millions of dollars over the years for Miscavige at Flag.

        She might recant like Dr Joan Woods did on the Lisa MacPherson case. So far, she has benn very quiet.


  23. Thanks Aida for this message and Happy New Year!! I do not have any doubts about the author of this!!

    • You’re welcome! Happy New Year to you too my friend!

      I do not know Debbie, but she has just confirmed through FB that she indeed is the author of such message!

      • WOW!! She is as much brave I thought! This is so great!! Thanks Aida!!

      • So many Scientologists know Debbie. Will they put their hands over their ears and ignore what she says and disconnect from her? Some maybe, but her words will still have a major impact.

        She’s not renouncing Scientology, quite the opposite, Merely stating what so many of them already know instinctively, that the organization is corrupt and that it must change. Unsettling of course but necessary.

        It will be very interesting to listen to the Chairman of the Board, Religious Technology Center at the New Years event paper over the cracks of 2011. “Straight up and vertical.” “Unprecedented expansion.” That will sound hollow to many!

        • Andrew,

          She started the new year with a bang, that’s for sure! I hope that people read her and don’t disconnect. But we will see what will happen.

          Thanks for the comment.


          • I made a plea on the ‘Village Voice’ blog that people should befriend Debbie on Facebook to make up for all the Scientology ‘friends’ who will disconnect from her.

            If she will accept her new friends and realize she’s not alone in her concern that the Church of Scientology no longer focuses on auditing and delivery, but has become a mercantile organization concerned only with accumulating wealth that would be a wonderful start for 2012!

    Thanks Aida for this message and Happy New Year! What a great start with an atomic bomb hitting DM on the 1st Day of the Year. I bet now, Debbie is gonna be declared and see will see that there is no way she can stay in that group and think and speak her mind and soul. Happy New Year guys, hurray!!!!!

    • Hi Theo:
      As I said it has not been confirmed that she has had enough integrity to have written this yet…however, I still decided to post it, as it tells the truth.

      Whether Debbie gets declared or not, I don’t know…in my book, if she is the real author of this email…then she is on her way to recover her personal integrity. If not…she IS definitely an SP because she has been an active participant of a supressive regime that caused a lot of damamge to thousands of people from all over the world for more than 25 years.

      • Theo Sismanides

        Hi Aida, it has now been confirmed IT IS her! We know that. On second thought I don’t think DM is gonna declare her right off hand! He is gonna find a more twisted way to handle this because the repercussions of such a Declare would be Immense for the Scientology community “in good standing”.

        We see. One thing is for sure as i wrote in Marty’s blog too. Debbie will now see it is to NO avail to fight in ON POLICY/RATIONAL way within the Church against DM and his sheepish Scientologists. She, for sure now, will get her share of this. And that gives us a big advantage. She took that step in the DOUBT formula and made a public announcement. So she is now gonna see the consequences of speaking your Mind freely about on Policy. LOL!
