Scientology Disconnection ~ Son has a Serious Accident

I just got this note from my friend Lori Hodgson last nite.  She was very, very upset because her son Jeremy Leake, was seriously injured in a motorcycle accident, is now in the hospital emergency room and she is not even allowed to see him!!!!


All this because of a disconnection policy that was cancelled back in 1968.  It is obvious that Jeremy has the wrong PTS item. Here is the story from a worried mother…



Here is my son Jeremy and his sister Jessica at the lake. They joined the SO and I have not been able to see them or talk to them again since. They are out of the SO and public now.  They were out 2 years ago and in the SO for only a short time.

I found out about his accident by a post on Facebook. No one notified me.
I called the hospitals and found out he was admitted to Santa Clara Valley Medical Hospital. I rushed over with my Dad and Stepmother to see him. I went to the ER and asked the status of my son and that I wanted to see him. I told them I was his mother.
They called to the back room where Jeremy was at and said I was here. The man at the front said, “The Hospital staff has been instructed to not let you go back to see him.” I told him “I have left the Church of Scientology and I am being shunned from seeing my son.”
Here is Lori with her children when they were a happy family before the disconnection.
Please let me see my son?”  He said “I am very sorry I can’t let you see him.” 
“With the Privacy Laws and your son being 18 I have to abide by the law.”  I asked if I could at least have his status and he said, ” No we can’t give out that information.”
Now I’m really panicked so I go around the back and wait for someone from The ER to come out. I briefly explained to a nurse what was happening and if he could please give my son a message. He said yes I can give him a written message.
The nurse brought Jeremy the message. He came back to tell me that Jeremy was alone in his room so he was able to give the note directly to him and that Jeremy said to tell me he is OK and that he doesn’t want to see anyone.   I was very relieved to hear that he was ok.
I know deep down in my heart that my son wants me with him but because of this cruel Disconnection policy of the Church of Scientology, he most likely feels forced to not break their rules!!!
I was able to find out that Jeremy broke his Femur and his Collar Bone and is scheduled for surgery tomorrow.

The Church of Scientology is violating their own policies on PTSness and disconnection.


HCOPL Cancellation of Disconnection Policy 15 November 1968


“Since we can now handle all types of cases disconnection as a condition is cancelled”


Disconnection has been Cancelled!


This was not included in the altered new Miscavige versions of the Green Volumes!

Other policy’s being violated, no, raped!   Are…



“HCOPL PTS Type A Handling of 20 October 1981″


In that policy Hubbard NEVER, EVER, mentions the word disconnection. The handling according to that policy is….


 “Get in comm with the family member until the situation is resolved” 


HCOB  of 8 March 1983, Handling PTS Situations

 It says perfectly clear…

You coach him into two way communication that is well above 2.0 on the Tone Scale, that mostly consists of acks and mild interest in what is going on… in other words, you handle this in real life..”



HCOB 10 September 1983, PTSness and Disconnection

 In the section “Lost Tech” Ron says;  “Earlier disconnection as a condition was cancelled. It had been abused by a few individuals who failed to handle situations which could have  been handled and who lazily or criminally disconnected, thereby creating situations even worse than the original, because it was the wrong action.”







I was determined to see my son and this is what happened:

My mom and I found out what room he was going to be in and we waited by the elevator near his room. After he was settled in his room, Jim his father was standing by his bedside asking Jeremy if he wanted to see me.

Before Jim finished his sentence I went over to my son and said,  “Hi Jeremy I’ve been here for you all day and I’m so glad you’re doing well. I’m going to leave now so there is not a problem for you. I hope you get well real fast and I love you so very much.”

Jeremy looked at me and said, “I love you.”

Then I went to leave and saw my daughter talking to a nurse. I went up and hugged her telling her “I miss you and love you.”  Jessica hugged me back. Then her grandma gave her a hug.

This has been one hell of an emotional 2 days for me and my family.  Thanks for all your Love and support it means a lot!!!!

Lori Hogdson and her son Jeremy and daughter Jessica Leake in happier times.

Snipers comment on “Who Helped David Miscavige Take Over?”

I received this response to my latest posting on  ‘Who Helped Miscavige’


 I want to clarify that this is the author,  Sniper’s opinion.  I am making a separate posting for this response because it is very long, very interesting and has a lot of information.

Thank you Sniper for your input in the situation.

Sniper’s Comment

Lets look at Rathbun from the view of warfare. That’s what he was doing for 30 years while being in the church. He was sitting in the fortress (called Church of SCN) and fighting the “enemies of SCN”.

He had millions of Dollars, personal PI´s and got whatever was needed to destroy the whistle blowers, the “apostates” and the “squirrels”.

Now he is sitting on the other side trying to fight it. Trying to fight a fortress is stupid. Sun Tsu, Chinese general warned to do so, already 2500 years ago. (The art of war) Its exhausting and expensive and it was almost never successful and for sure never efficient.

Ask Larry Wollerheim or Gerry Armstrong. Based on his debrief available on the Internet, Larry was fed up fighting the church and though he won the legal battle after 25 years. The fortress is still there and it does not matter how insane it is inside. They still delegate POWER to a certain degree.

It took 60 years to get rid of the USSR and it was not done by external influences, nor by infiltration. It was done because a sane individual reached the highest rank. (Gorbachev)  And think about the fortress, Third Reich Germany.  It cost the allied endless billions of war machinery to defeat it and 60 million people lost their lives.

Usually one fights the enemy (at a place) where he is weak or can’t execute his skills.

Vietnam and Cuba have been the best examples how guerrilla tactics work best, but one can do it only on familiar terrain.  Or you heard the story about Troja, After 10 years of siege it was conquered with a clever deceit,  not with effort.

All whistle blowers made the same mistake. Larry Wollersheim, Jesse Prince, Gerry Armstrong, RV  Young and Bob Minton…  just to name a few, they tried to fight the fortress at a place where it is strong.

Now what has this to do with Rathbun

He also did not learn anything about it, he keeps going with the same mistakes and I bet that he will fail. He KNEW exactly what would happen if he stands up and speaks out.

Furthermore he is not telling us NEW Stories!! Not at all.

All the stories about abuse, intelligence, out tech, reging blah blah blah…   have been told already for years, even decades before HE decided to talk. There is absolutely nothing NEW,  just other incidents, other places, other times, other forms or additional data which have been omitted in earlier times.

I have been reading his blog for about one year.  He thinks he is an Opinion leader.

He is treated by his followers as an OL. Sure he is for about 100 Indies, maybe 1000 I don´t care.

What smells is his godly correctness about LRH and the tech. Whenever its possible he is pushing his message, I am standard tech, I got it, I am on source.

Furthermore he never lets anybody doubt that HE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT drop-out ever. He is making a lots of noise. Noise attracts and disperses attention and makes it difficult to look.

Although, I spotted a few outpoints which made me suspicious about his show.  And one of them is the following.  If one leaves the church to make up an independent movement,  he actually has no need to fight his earlier group or mates. He could just do it. Delivering service.

Or even if he is doing a liability (making up the damage, as he claims) he could just do it. It won’t be necessary to attack the fortress as he could pick up all the bodies the church left in the field and fix them.

But no.

He is even trying to remove power from the fortress  by ripping off parishioners from their lines.  And on top of that he has been refusing to apologize for harsh and evil fair game actions against earlier whistle blowers.  For example,  Gerry Armstrong.

I know Gerry personally. He is neither evil nor dangerous for his environment. It seems Rathbun is just picking the individuals HE likes to help. Why not inviting Paulette Cooper for a session?

Rathbun must not wonder that he is being chased and harassed. I am sure there are a lots of  (silent) auditors which deliver service and are not having problems with the church.

So why the show?

If its his intention to dispossess Miscavige by creating pressure from outside (ethics gradients) then its an out-point (DEV-T  unnecessary action) because he already formed a new group.

Why waste effort to the former group? He could give a shit on it. He won’t go back anyway.

Furthermore, his actions of whistle blowing were obviously useless and did not work. I do not criticize the act of whistle blowing,  but its a fact that Miscavige and his fortress is still there  (probably in a bad condition and bad reputation) but he is still reging money like crazy for estates, IAS and OT levels which don´t exist.

This concludes that the church still has power to a certain degree. They have marching parishioners,  money, assets and they still have comm lines and allies. Not even Hitler was such a bold guy.  I guess, Hitler and DM would be a good team.

Rathbun and Rinder also learned how to get rid of Miscavige. They could have done it while being in the church. As pointed out by Larry Brennan, the bylaws of CST say that the board members or the chairman of CST can dismiss the head of RTC.

Quote Brennan:  “All what needs to done is that the terminal (Board member) HOLDS its POSITION in front of Miscavige and FIRE HIM.”

Both guys, Rinder and Rathbun could have had an influence on a CST Board member, help him to confront AND FIRE THE ASSHOLE……..

But no, they did not. They preferred to leave and appear as poor victims.   “……Miscavige beats his staff…..”  That’s all that is left from 30 years of Sea Org training and experience?

You see, they were already inside the fortress, knew the rules, knew the scene, knew the game conditions and a real way out of the mess for all Scientologists  but they didn’t !!!! THAT’S THEIR REAL OVERT of omission!

Gorbachev didn’t blow:   HE DID IT!!!

Let me end with a quote from LRH.

“The thing you are not able to communicate to, you must fight.”   (DN 55)

So decide for yourself who is the psychotic,  Rathbun, Miscavige or both?

Who Helped David Miscavige Take Over?


“They must find it difficult, those that take authority as truth, instead of truth as the authority”

-Gerald Massey, Egyptologist.


I got in Scientology in 1976 and by then Ron was no longer appearing in public, but he was still in command and in communication with the public.  I saw the evolution of the Church until 1997 when I finally left. This is my take on what really happened with the Church and LRH. This is what I saw and some of what I learned later.

.Here I am on course on September 1977 at the American Saint Hill Organization, Los Angeles.

When Ron wrote Dianetics Modern Science of Mental Health in 1950, no one could really write a self help book like nowadays. It had to be written by a psychologist, a psychiatrist or perhaps by a minister of a Church.  And, the average person could not give counseling unless he was trained at a university and properly licensed.

But in today’s society we now have gurus, Life Coaches, New Age Practitioners, counselors, ‘facilitators’ and many others that come by different names.  In the present, pretty much anybody can invent a processes, write a book or start a practice, even if they had not been ‘recognized’ as such by an authority or a college degree. Actually, most of these New Age practices are derivations of Scientology,  like Avatar, Landmark Forum and others.

But for Ron, those were different times as ‘Auditors’ had no license to practice as counselors.  So LRH decided to make Scientology a religion or religious philosophy and Dianetics his science. Many people left when that happened. Nevertheless, the IRS still wanted him to pay taxes and of course, like everyone else, Hubbard wanted nothing to do with them.

Scientology’s purpose is to achieve higher spiritual and ethical levels. True, Ron was really ahead of his time with his new ideas as they simplified the application of many philosophies and thinkers that came before him.  He also acknowledged that his writings were based on thousands of years of  wisdom from past philosophers and scientists.

However, the IRS did not recognize Scientology as a religion and Hubbard HAD to pay taxes or else. This became a problem and he went into hiding. In the meantime, Mary Sue (his wife) had gone to jail for many years. Because of these factors, Mary Sue and Ron where separated for many years and its been said that they where unable to even communicate with each other.

When Ron died in 1986, the management of Scientology announced it at the Hollywood Palladium.  Unfortunately I could not attend the ceremony.  However, I later watched the video where Earle C. Cooley, (the lawyer that was present at Ron’s death) Pat Broeker and others  misrepresent the truth to the public.  They told everyone that LRH had “causatively left his body to go onto research advanced OT levels, which required that he be unencumbered of his earthly form”. 


Here is an old picture of the attorney who helped David Miscavige take over.  I learned he had died recently from a passionate eulogy presented on Marty Rathbun  blog where he called him a hero of all things.  On the contrary, the man was considered by many as a criminal.

( See the LRH’s Coroner’s report)  http://www.xenu.net/archive/hubbardcoroner/

The problem with  Hubbard “causatively leaving the body” is,  that he never left a message, written or taped, or even a journal speaking of it to the public.  We also never had a official  Power Change Formula from him. 

This outpoint alone is directly contrary to the basics of the Ethics Conditions that Hubbard himself pioneered.  The book Introduction to Scientology Ethics includes;

“Correctly applying the condition of power change makes it possible for a person to successfully take over a job his predecessor left behind” 

If the above statment of Ron “causatively leaving the body” and turning over his post is true.  One would think that his life’s work would have been important enough for him to have included such a thing. Not only did he consider this topic important enough to write about in general, but as well to include in the Ethics conditions (as it is such) with the  “Power Change Violation Repair Formula” as well. 

Knowing that this repair formula would be rather dificult to do once body death has passed, one would believe that Ron being a detailed man, would have certainly accounted for it before hand.  Again, that is if the statment “causatively leaving the body” were to be true.

This bothered me for a long time, but it was not feasible to know the truth. In those days there was no internet and unless you challenged the new Scientology authorities, there was no way to know what had really happened.

The only message Ron allegedly left, was a document dated 15 May, 1983,  in which he acknowledges David Miscavige as  “his trusted associate.”  In this document it also claims  Ron stating, “the charges that he is organizing the theft of my assets are completely false…”   At that time the public had yet to even hear of such charges, let alone a situation important enough to prompt a handling for them from Ron himself.  I guess it was the internal politics of,  “just in case”. 

Here is a copy of one page the document

Click to enlarge

On the next page one can see Ron’s signature. However, the document was not released as a Policy letter or Executive Directive as customary in the Church but is actually on numbered paper normally reserved for legal documents.  This being so, is NOT notarized and there are NO signatures of any witnesses as would be expected with such. To me, not only is this document then neither a “standard legal document” nor is it a customary Church document.

Finally if one looks closely,  LRH’s signature looks remarkably different from his signature on prior documentation, well as the Ron’s famous hallmark initials that we have seen over the decades. As for the finger prints… sadly enough, one not need be alive to make a finger print.

Here is Ron’s signature we all grew to know.  According to Jesse Prince, Norman Starkey forged his signature. Others have commented as well that David Miscavige and others used to brag on how well they could forging Ron’s signature from the “You can always write to Ron” letter line of the early years.


You do not have to be an expert to compare both signatures and see the difference.



David Miscavige and ‘his execs’ took charge of the Church of Scientology in the 80’s.  The first thing they did was to dismantle the Mission Network.  This act alone was in direct conflict with Ron’s directives of making Auditors and expanding the availability of Scientology and more aligned with shrinking the expansion to manageability of control. 

This started with the now infamous “Mission Holders Conference”,  where ALL mission holders where ordered to attend. Once in the venue and assembled,  Sea Org “guards” and staff promptly locked all the exits behind them.The rest of the story is available at length here, though validating the information for yourself must remain your own responsibility.  


After that evening almost all of the missions from all over the world suddenly folded and closed their doors.


Second in command then was Marty Rathbun, along with Mike Rinder. There were other execs such as Larry Brennan, Jeff Hawkins, Guillaume Lesevre, Ray Mithoff, Marc Yaeger, Jesse Prince, etc. These people at the time were the front line protectors of the Church and intrusted most with the implementation of KSW. So, why did they all fail?





Who helped David Miscavige come to power?

I don’t know for sure. But, one thing I do know for sure is that L. Ron Hubbard or David Miscavige alone did not destroy Scientology. On the contrary, this was a tight knit group headed by Miscavige after Ron’s death and all of the execs were very compliant to Miscavige’s orders. They did whatever they had to do to stay in his good graces and to keep him at the top. How did David Miscavige become COB?

All of the above mentioned executives as far as I am concerned were not applying the Tech at all. These being the very principles that attracted myself and others to Scientology to begin with.

What is “Greatness, Granting Beingness, Pan-determinism, Personal Integrity, What is true for you” and other similar values  suddenly all disappeared. In it’s place a dictatorial “have to do what we say or else” came into place and the environment instantly fell to danger and fear.

Free thinking was no longer allowed by the new Miscavige regime.

Most of those execs stayed for more than 20 years and supported Miscavige’s ‘reign of terror’. Apparently they were all a part of it through willfully perpetrating crimes against humanity by the damage they created worldwide. 

Not only did they harm Scientology, the most grave Suppressive Act considerable by Church Ethics through limiting it’s reach and application, bringing a bad reputation to the subject, holding the Church in harms way and “squirreling” the technology to a point of unworkability, etc.

Individually people lost their money, economic security, their youth was wasted, they lost their Families, Mothers, Fathers, Children and Siblings.

They lost their freedom and some even lost their lives.

Some of these so called, ‘execs’ finally  left and are now speaking out and publishing books with their stories.  It is clear that their policy of  “anything-goes”  was forcefully applied to make money and to stay in power without care or consideration at all about the damage they caused to the Church, the subject of Scientology and to people from all over the world.

Here are the main violators of this regime attack on lives and human rights:


In the meantime while all the above had occurred, apparently the IRS  had agreed to recognize Scientology as a religion.

Marty Rathbun was told that if Hubbard paid $12.5 million dollars of back taxes, Hubbard could come out and take charge of the church again.

Not only that, but the CofS would have tax free status as a religion.

According to insiders, David Miscavige did not want to pay the I.R.S. and have Hubbard take publicly viable charge of the Church again. This would have eliminated the need for a “via” of  Ron’s orders due to being in hiding and thus the ability to subjugate control from him.

Miscavige instead decided he liked being on the top.  Eventually the CST (Church of Spiritual Technology) was created with a controlling board of lawyers and others who were not even Scientologists.

The head of CST at its time of conception was Meade Emory.  Mr. Emory also held the position of Assistant to Commissioner of IRS!?  The Church was now being run not by dedicated clears and OT’s but by ‘wogs’ and I.R.S Officers!

Here is the “Tax crud” Meade Emory

Founder of the “Church of Spiritual Technology


Here is the link with all of the LEGAL documentation and names. You’ll be surprised at this information. Best link of them all.


Per the above link,  after they got rid of Hubbard, they now needed to get rid of Mary Sue Hubbard and her children as well. According to many witnesses this is what happened.


“Miscavige had Mary Sue Hubbard under “house arrest” in Los Feliz in LA. near the complex. She had two Sea Org members living with her and they went with her everywhere and reported daily to Miscavige what she did every day.”

“Soon after LRH’s death, Miscavige takes Jesse Prince and over a dozen other Sea Org execs and invade  the house of Mary Sue Hubbard… 

She was recovering from lung cancer surgery and was in a wheelchair at the time… 

Under duress, MSH made an agreement to waive her rights to her community share of the Estate of LRH…

This is how Miscavige swindled Hubbard’s heirs out of an inheritance worth 400 million.”


Here is an article from the St Petersbug Times that Miscavige, Marty and Rinder wish they could make it disappear.



Some of the purported Sea Org members who invaded MSH house and yelled at her until she signed the documents renouncing her legal rights to the intellectual properties of Scientology are listed as…

Jesse Prince

Lyman Spurlock 

Norman Starkey


Vicki Aznaran



Marc Yaeger


Ray Mithoff


Marty Rathbun


Here is Marty’s version of what had happened at MSH’s house.  It looks different than the one in the link above and the “historically accepted” version repeated through the years.


There are many witnesses who have stated that Marty Rathbun was an accessory to the take over of the Church from Mary Sue Hubbard and her family.

Allegedly after the take over, Marty and his wife Ann, Mike Rinder and his wife Cathy, as well as the other executives and their wives, all received a salary of $ 120,000 dollars annually… EACH! 

That meant each ‘exec couple’ made $220,000 dollars total a year. Plus all expenses paid, first class flights, expensive suits, dinners at the best restaurants, fancy accommodations, etc. 

All while the rest of the SO staff were eating rice and beans and sleeping in over crowded berthing facilities. Some as much as ten to a room.

Here are the ex-wives of those ex-executives.  They are now dissing their ex-husbands on TV and calling them losers.

From left to right,   Catherine Bernardini-Rinder, Katherine Fraser-Hawkins, Annie Joasem-Rathbun and with the glasses; Jenny Linson-De Voght.

When Mary Sue Hubbard died there was no eulogy from the Church for the founder’s honored and dearly loved wife. No announcements, acknowledgment or even “Historical Mention” made.  Instead they treated it as if she had never existed.  Mary Sue and her children were completely erased from Ron’s family album and history of the church.  Miscavige and his team made sure of that.

After the ‘golden team’ got rid of LRH and MSH. Now David Miscavige, Marty Rathbun, Mike Rinder, Greg Wilhere, Ronnie Miscavige, Ray Mithoff and others could be the top honchos of the ‘Authorized’ Organization of Scientology. They alone were now “Upper Management” and the end of Scientology as the world had known it had began.  Perhaps it began before,  but to me, that is where it all started.

For myself, I wanted to continue auditing, but many auditors and critics of Scientology had been raided by the police, which were allegedly ordered by Marty Rathbun.

The Independent Scientologists already had a group in 1982 and they had formal organizations and were delivering auditing.

Marty is NOT the first indie group.  Actually, he harassed those original independents and anyone else who dared to practice or criticize the Scientology religion outside of the ‘upper management’ control.

Here is Dennis Erlich one of the people that were raided by the police. Warren McShane a high exec of the Chruch had ordered it.  Dennis lost his house as a result of these operations.


 Just recently I have been reading Janet Reitman book,  ‘Inside Scientology’.  I would like to quote her  here for those who have not read it. If you read her book you will be shocked. It is very ‘enlightening’ as to ‘who is who’ in the crimes of Scientology.

First of all, on page 153 she describes  an accounts of how Miscavige and Rathbun stole the secret materials and personal effects of Ron Hubbard from Pat Broeker, who had been very close to Ron and was supposed to succeed him upon his death.

These so called “OT execs” behaved like thugs in old Chicago and were willing to steal, cheat, maim, lie and more for power. In that page she also mentions that According to Marty Rathbun, “there are no OT 9 and 10, let alone anything higher…”  More from Marty’s own blog:

“When the folders turned out to contain no holy grail, Broeker then said he had other LRH writings that constituted the keys to OT IX and X.

Another raid ensuedin which I coordinated a squad of armed outside security personnel to secure the premises”.

What does this mean? Was Marty willing to order his armed squad to shoot and murder Pat Broeker?

Marty made these claims on his blog, yet, for more than 20 years Marty and Miscavige led people to believe that there were more OT levels that would be released if Orgs became St Hill Size.

Wow! That meant n-e-v-e-r!

And, to do this they would have to gain and flow LOTS of money and assets to upper management as a result in the process whether they made it or not.

Here is a picture of St Hill I took in my last visit to England.


As it turned out, Marty knew for 20 years that the OT levels 9-15 did not exist at all!

Yet, they all played the game of telling the public and staff to  go for “St Hill size”  in order to deliver the rest of the OT levels.

All the while knowing full well they could not do it. Nevertheless, naturally they were selling them!

All these years of lies to the whole world!

And, some even paid in advance for those levels at the cost of a ton of money at that! Here is an old invoice for advance payment for OT IX and X.

People were being regged over $18,000.00 dollars for services that did NOT exist!!




Per Marty’s own words, he destroyed the evidence on the Lisa MacPherson case that could possibly have landed David Miscavige in jail, yet he protected him from the law. 

Marty Rathbun was an accessory to the dismantling and prosecuting of many auditors, Missions, staff members and the very first Independent Scientologists.

Marty also labelled Freezoners,  as ‘squirrels’; yet he now calls his own group;  “Independents, part of the Freezone” !?

He has been adjudicated as the person who has gotten a lot of people out of Scientology, however, to me, until Anon came and organized world wide demonstrations against Scientology, there was no way to be able to communicate and do something about it and thanks to them, long before Marty, many more walked out to freedom and spoke out.

There is a lot more to say with names and events that could be mentioned but I just wanted to share this information in a nutshell.  It is up to you, our readers, to create your own conclusions and gather further information from this point on.
