What is Scientology?

Slave chains forged of lies
are stronger than fine steel

And those enslaved see
neither shackle nor lock.

The mission must be,
in order to set them free:

show them how their
chains were made

and where lies hid the key..

Are the Conspirators from the largest domestic spying case in US history,

Director Kenneth Anger - Scientology critic
"I have a couple of pet hates in Hollywood. Travolta, Cruise, and Kidman – the whole Scientology gang are a bunch of creeps. People have said, "Oh, you mustn't say that in print, or they'll put a rattlesnake in your mailbox!" [Laughs] They're vindictive towards even whispers of criticism. The main chapter hanging up Hollywood Babylon III is the one on Scientology. Did you see Battlefield Earth? It's the most laughable piece of crap I've ever seen, and now Travolta says, "I'm going to make a sequel." Fine. They can drain more Scientology money into it. I encourage them to make Battlefield Earth 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8. [L. Ron] Hubbard was such a lousy writer.

Spanish Court acquits Scientologists
Just to put this "big win" of Scientology into perspective, the last information I got
from Spain was a telephone call from the last complainant who was left in
that case.... John Caban... who was lamenting that all the previous
criminal complainants (those who had been wronged..), which included one
by Pedro Lerma whose civil lawsuit -- and it was the cult's efforts to
crush that civil litigation that grew into the "Spanish criminal
-- had been harassed incessantly and then "bought off" by
Scientology to "settle" the matter. Having no complainants left to
testify, all the prosecutor was left with was "illicit association" - and
not one of the original complainants - to testify. And all this in a
country for which $1 US = 172 Spanish pesetas. Scientology's money goes a
long way in Spain.

From Motion in Opposition to Summary Judgement in Lisa McPherson Case :

Roach Feeding Sites:

"All of the Estate’s pathologists have further opined that Lisa did have
bug bites on her body, antemortem and peri-mortem. Dr. Spitz has
documented insect feeding sites on two autopsy microscopic slides.
Appendix A5, at pp. 20-27, 73-74. The scientific evidence of the post
mortem photographs
of Lisa’s body show 109 different cockroach feeding
sites, mostly antemortem, per the board certified entomologist retained
by the Estate, Neil Haskell, Ph.D. See attached excerpts from his
deposition, Appendix 6, at pp. 238-239, and his diagram of feeding
sites, Appendix 7, with special emphasis on the facial autopsy

St. Peteresburg Times Article:

"Again and again in recent years, Scientology has claimed that it has reformed, that it no longer engages in the kind of underhanded or illegal behavior and smear tactics that have earned it a sorry reputation around the globe. Again and again, Scientology has argued that it is a religion and should be treated like any other church.

But again and again, stories surface that set Scientology apart. Not only does it have a penchant for secrecy, it will spend virtually unlimited time and money on pursuing, setting up and bringing down its critics.

That's not like any church we know."

In his letter, Pope repeated a willful falsehood he was once forced to retract in court. In fact, no one was convicted of contempt in the recent trial before Judge Penick. Adjudication of guilt was withheld as to two of the approximately 13 people Pope and Scientology haled into court; the rest were acquitted outright. {including the operator of this website..} of text here

What is Scientology - Short Analogy

Click here to start soundtrack from Rod Serlings Twilightzone while reading the following:

Imagine if you entered a carnival crazy house of mirrors, in it you were told
"what is true for you is true for you" and you were not allowed to speak to anyone that had found the door?

The only people you could talk to were also wandering around inside... clutching checksheets, routing forms, and course packs...all designed to send you to the next mirror, in a controlled and orderly fashion...while stressing repeatedly that the guy that built the maze was to be "duplicated exactly', and everywhere you looked you saw his picture....

Note the similarity of carnival showmaster P.T. Barnum's "The Show Must Go On" to L Ron Hubbard's "Make it go right" Abe Lincoln said "You can fool some of the people all of the time, You can fool all of the people, some of the time, But you can't fool all of the people, all of the time ", and Hubbard went one step further, figuring out a way to handle this:

This is what the lawyers are for!
And when the lawyers can no longer sue, they lie to state and federal authorities conning them with Scientology's fabrications and "simulated felonies", trying to get them to do Scientology's work for them - to silence those who know how Hubbard's trick is done

How Scientology Frames its critics

Testimony under oath by Ex-Scientology operative Frank Oliver from court transcript

Page 9: "Mr. Oliver will testify that upon his
leaving the church he was declared a suppressive person,
and he has been the target of such attacks as well.
There is actually a Department of Special Affairs, this
OSA Department that Mr. Howd is a member of. Check lists
on how to carry out such drills as targeting someone,
turning them into a criminal, and creating an engagement
upon which they can rely for their propaganda. You will
hear him testify about how a twin was used, and you will
actually see this in the videos. Where you see two
females together, that is actually part of their tactics
on using a twin. You will hear him testify about the way
everybody had scanned outside, be a witness, assumed the
action took place, and then turned around. That this is
not all coincidental, it’s part of their tactics. They
are actually taught this and they rehearse this. Mr.
Oliver will testify to that."

Page 44 :

Q Is there an understanding on how the law and
the court system is to be used by Scientology?

 A It’s just another tool that is used to harass
individuals, and if the individual doesn’t have money and
you really want to get somebody you can bankrupt somebody
in a court. 

Q Is that commonly done?

A Yes, it is.

Q What about the criminal law system?

A Anything they have to do.

Q And that’s actually taught to you?

A: Yes.

"An individual processed with the aid of the E-meter was said to reach the intended goal of "clear" and was led to believe there was reliable scientific proof that once cleared many, indeed most illnesses would automatically be cured. Auditing was guaranteed to be successful. All this was and is false -- in short, a fraud. " Federal District Judge Gesell 333 F. Supp. 357; 1971 U.S. Dist

"However, I am persuaded ... Scientology is not, subject to one reservation, a religious institution because it is, in relation to its religious pretensions, no more than a sham ," "Its bogus claims to believe in prayer and other aspects of a creed based on a divine being, were " no more than a mockery of religion. Scientology as practiced is in reality the antithesis of a religion" Supreme Court Justice Crockett - Australia 1980

"That these defendants were willing to frame their critics to the point of giving false testimony under oath against them and having them arrested and indicted speaks legions for their disdain for the rule of law. Indeed, they arrogantly placed themselves above the law, meting out their personal brand of punishment to those 'guilty' of opposing their selfish aims. -- Judge Richey in the sentencing of Mary Sue Hubbard and ten other Scientologists in October 1978 -- US District Court, Washington DC.

" Scientology is evil; its techniques are evil; its practice is a serious threat to the community, medically, morally, and socially; and its adherents are sadly deluded and often mentally ill... (Scientology is) the world's largest organization of unqualified persons engaged in the practice of dangerous techniques which masquerade as mental therapy."
--Justice Anderson, Supreme Court of Victoria, Australia

"The government is satisfied that Scientology is socially harmful. It alienates members of families from each other and attributes squalid and disgraceful motives to all who oppose it; its authoritarian principles and practice are a potential menace to the personality and well being of those so deluded as to become followers; above all, its methods can be a serious danger to the health of those who submit to them... There is no power under existing law to prohibit the practice of Scientology; but the government has concluded that it is so objectionable that it would be right to take all steps within its power to curb its growth. " --Kenneth Robinson, British Minister of Health

"Ultimately Wollersheim became so convinced auditing was causing him psychiatric problems he was willing to risk becoming a target of "freeloader debt" and "fair game." Evidence was introduced that, at least during the time relevant to Wollersheim's case, "fair game" was a practice of retribution Scientology threatened to inflict on "suppressives," which included people who left the organization or anyone who could pose a threat to the [212 Cal.App.3d 880] organization. Once someone was identified as a "suppressive," all Scientologists were authorized to do anything to "neutralize" that individual -- economically, politically, and psychologically.

After Wollersheim left the organization Scientology leaders initiated a "fair game" campaign which among other things was calculated to destroy Wollersheim's photography enterprise. They instructed some Scientology members to leave Wollersheim's employ, told others not to place any new orders with him and to renege on bills they owed on previous purchases from the business. This strategy shortly drove Wollersheim's photography business into bankruptcy. His mental condition deteriorated further and he ended up under psychiatric care."

"The crime committed by these defendants is of a breath and scope previously unheard of. No building, office, desk, or file was safe from their snooping and prying. No individual or organization was free from their despicable conspiratorial minds. The tools of their trade were miniature transmitters, lock picks, secret codes, forged credentials and any other device they found necessary to carry out their conspiratorial schemes." -Federal prosecutor's memorandum to the judge urging stiff jail sentences for 9 top leaders of Scientology who had pleaded guilty to criminal charges

"Scientology is both immoral and socially obnoxious... It is corrupt sinister and dangerous. It is corrupt because it is based on lies and deceit and has its real objective money and power for Mr. Hubbard... It is sinister because it indulges in infamous practices both to its adherents who do not toe the line unquestionably and to those who criticize it or oppose it. It is dangerous because it is out to capture people and to indoctrinate and brainwash them so they become the unquestioning captives and tools of the cult, withdrawn from ordinary thought, living, and relationships with others."

-- Justice Latey, ruling in the High Court of London

"[The court record is] replete with evidence [that Scientology] is nothing in reality but a vast enterprise to extract the maximum amount of money from its adepts by pseudo scientific theories... and to exercise a kind of blackmail against persons who do not wish to continue with their sect.... The organization clearly is schizophrenic and paranoid, and this bizarre combination seems to be a reflection of its founder, L.Ron Hubbard."

--Judge Breckenridge, Los Angeles Superior Court

"In addition to violating and abusing its own members' civil rights, the organization over the years with its 'fair game' doctrine has harassed and abused those persons not in the church whom it perceives as enemies. " -Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Paul Breckenridge, June 1984, in the Gerry Armstrong case

"In January 1980, fearing a raid by law enforcement agencies, Hubbard's representatives ordered the shredding of all documents showing that Hubbard controlled Scientology organizations, finances, personnel, or the property at Gilman Hot Springs. In a two week period, approximately one million pages were shredded pursuant to this order."

--California appellate court, 2nd. district, 3rd. division, July 29, 1991, B025920 & B038975, Super. Ct. No. C 420153

"It is common knowledge among senior executives of the organization and it is the policy of CSC that members of the Boards of Directors are mere figureheads, without authority or control, not for internal corporate reasons, but rather to vest control in Mr. Hubbard. I have personal knowledge that in order to carry out this corporate fraud, organizational executives have engaged in the various unethical practices including backdating phony Board minutes and forging signatures. "

--Affidavit of Gerry Armstrong, former member

"When a person is subjected to coercive persuasion [as in Scientology] without his knowledge or consent ...[he may] develop serious and sometimes irreversible physical and psychiatric disorders, up to and including schizophrenia, self-mutilation, and suicide. "

--California Supreme Court, United States v. Lee [455 U.S. 252,257,258 (1982)*/

" Scientologists believe that most human problems can be traced to lingering spirits of an extraterrestrial people massacred by their ruler, Xenu, over 75 million years ago. These spirits attach themselves by "clusters" to individuals in the contemporary world, causing spiritual harm and negatively influencing the lives of their hosts ". USDJ Judge Leonie Brinkema 4 Oct 96 Memorandum Opinion, RTC vs Lerma

".. .capable of such danger that the public interest demands that people should know what is going on " LORD DENNING

"Scientologists secured employment with government agencies perceived to be enemies of the Church, and signed oaths of secrecy as public officials. In breach of their oaths of office, they then took copies of confidential documents from the agencies that employed them and provided them to the Church of Scientology of Toronto."

"The criminal acts of Church of Scientology of Toronto were insidious attacks on two essential law enforcement agencies in this province. The integrity and effective functioning of those agencies (the Ministry of the Attorney General and the Ontario Provincial Police) are of great importance to good government in this province. The offences _threatened_ such integrity and effectiveness, and I regard each of them as very serious."

In rejecting the cult's appeal, the Ontario Court of Appears agreed with this statement.above in a 1997 opinion upholding an appeal of the trial court of Scientology's conviction for "Breach of the Public Trust" in Canada

"It is an organization with medical, social and ethical practices that are dangerous and harmful," Judge Constandia Angelaki wrote in her [December 1996] ruling. "It claims to act freely so as to draw members who subsequently undergo ... brainwashing by dictated ways of thinking that limit reaction capabilities. "

The largest domestic spying case in U.S. history was the US vs. Mary Sue Hubbard in 1982. That trial ended in a US Federal Court in Washington DC with the criminal conviction of members of the Scientology organization. Twenty years later, during this current period of supposedly heightened national security, defendants and co-conspirators from that same domestic spying case are providing Wireless Networking and VPN { Virtual Private Networking ) for United States governmental agencies.

Putting it more specifically, the same crew, from Scientology, that illegally entered IRS offices, made a wax impression of a key, then went back with a forged key and faked IRS ID's to burglarize Assistant US Attorney General's offices, and IRS Chief Counsel offices, and who planted a microphone in a conference room in IRS offices ( see Grand Jury indictment) are now handing out VPN services- 'Virtual Private Networking' for secure communications between government agencies?

Wireless! WebConnect is actually a member of World Institute of Scientology Enterprises (WISE = Scientology see the IRS Secret closing agreement webbed by the Wall Street Journal .)The company, Business Tel, which now uses the new name, Wireless! Web Connect, is still listed in the WISE 2001 directory

From the WISE 2001 Directory:

Business Tel: Deac Finn
6302 Sponson Lane
San Jose, CA 95123-5619
United States
(1) 408-323-0100

WISE is one of the many front groups used by Scientology, a member of WISE uses Scientology's management data to run its operations, based upon L Ron Hubbard. They try to keep the Scientology name out of it, but it is just part of the show.

From WWC's filing before the Securities and Exchange Commission

Wireless WebConnect! was founded in 1991 under the name Business Tel to integrate the disciplines of public relations, marketing, inbound and outbound call centers, inside and outside sales and customer retention activities to round out a full-service subscriber acquisition model. As of March 1, 2001, there were 90 employees of Wireless WebConnect!. Wireless WebConnect! started out in the long distance reselling industry where it established sales offices for a publicly held company in numerous major United States markets and supported them via a centralized 100-person call center operation.

Deac Finn is actually Gerald T. Finn, or GT Finn, he refers to himself on the following WWC corporate profile as

G. T. Finn
Founder and President

Mr. Finn spent the 1970's working in various social reform organizations in the New England area including VISTA (domestic Peace Corps), and the Robert F. Kennedy Action Corps. He established several community and institution drug rehabilitation programs that still exist today. In the 1980's he was Executive Director of an international consulting firm where he assisted business executives in learning and applying the principles of "Statistical Management & Quality Control" used today in Wireless WebConnect!. In this position Mr. Finn traveled throughout Europe, Africa, Mexico and the US servicing clients in many different industries. In 1990 he settled in the San Jose area and founded Business Tel as a customer acquisition company servicing telecommunications and high tech companies, which has now evolved into Wireless WebConnect!

The "community and institution drug rehabilitation programs" that he established are, most likely, franchises of "Narconon", the Scientology "drug rehabilitation program" that is chiefly used to recruit the unwary and the vulnerable into the cult.

Gerald T. "Deac" Finn was the one that ran Guardian's office operative Steve Dardano "The planting of a church member as a volunteer inside the state attorney general's office to intercept consumer complaints about Scientology"  in Boston Massachusetts. See Dardano Testimony from Clearwater Commission Hearings. Also from a Boston Globe Article

"We were a conspiracy formed by the church against The Boston Globe, the Attorney General's office, the Better Business Bureau . . .

and Paulette Cooper . . ." Dardano added in Clearwater.

"We considered anyone and everyone an enemy of the church."

 Gerald "Deac" Finn is also a former director of IMU Services Inc., a shell corporation associated with the International Association of Scientologists. See Florida Corporate Records Database (note: site works best late at night when server is not busy). The address of record for IMU was 118 N Ft Harrison Avenue, Clearwater FL This was the location in 1990 of an INCOMM mainframe [closet sized ] and main computer system for Scientology activities in Clearwater. Also was the Telex communications room for Flag Land Base. Offices for the CMO (Commodores Messenger Org), RTC Representative, FLB Finance, and International Finance. As well as the Freewinds Liasion Office. More registries at 118 N Ft Harrison are here.

He is also a former member of the Guardian's Office, the Church's quasi-legal secret service and intelligence gathering wing, which was dismantled in the early eighties after a dozen of its members were indicted for attempting to steal documents critical of Scientology from various government office buildings, including the IRS and the Department of Justice.

(Click here for more information on the Guardian's Office.)

In December 1994, Gerald Finn was indicted in Spain as part of a massive state action against the Church of Scientology. He was one of only two Americans named in the indictment. (The other is Church of Scientology International President Heber Jentzsch.)

In the 1982 stipulation settlement in US vs MSH there is also a JANET FINN listed, this may be his wife... (see page 183 of the stipulation)

WWC's  Phillip Jepsen, Senior Vice President Operations, has a Scientology web page
And while you're at it, read the Scientology web page of WWC's  Neil Byrne, Senior Vice President New Business Development.

Wireless Webconnect lists a number of strategic partnerships worth observing, particularly one with Intnet, or the Intelligence Network, Inc., the Florida ISP run by Deac's fellow Scientologists and also ex Scientology Guardian's Office alumnus George Pilat (see page 247 of US  vs MSH Stipulation) (and his lovely wife Suzi) as well as Bruce Ullman (see page 23 of US vs MSH Stipulation) (For more information on George Pilate and Suzi, visit the "Where are they now?" Snow White conspirators website.)

Ullman is George Pilat's partner  is also a named unindicted co conspirator in U.S.  vs Mary Sue Hubbard. Ullman was close friends with state witness Michael Miesner. Michael Mieser provided states evidence in exchange for immunity.

From Stipulations in US vs MSH, page 23

"Also present at this meeting were the defendants Mitchell Hermann and Bruce Ullman who held the position of Information Branch II Director { in the Guardians Office of Scientology ] in the District of Columbia. Alverzo showed Meisner the bugging device which he had brought with him from Los Angeles."

See Michael Meisner in Federal Grand Jury Indictment.

 WWC is also involved with Fortress Technologies, which also has many Scientology connections, including Scientologist Board Member Kenneth Gerbino. They were sued recently by a Jewish employee who did not wish to be forced to purchase Hubbard's books for religious discrimination!

Wireless Webconnect (WWC), a high speed internet connection provider with ties to Richochet, is also "advised" by the mysterious RC&A Group, as explained in this press release  - The RC&A Group is named in the Raul Lopez Lawsuit against Scientology, Also known as the Ostrich Egg Swindle


Notice, Robert Cefail as listed as contact for . investor relations. You can read a bit more about the merger on the WWC site at this page


Robert Cefail is ALSO currently one of the defendants in this ongoing lawsuit (

New Times LA, a respected local alternative weekly, wrote this story about the case, which also mentions the Cefails involvement in bilking Lopez out of his money

Stacy Brooks statement after reading this report:

"When the Dictrict of Columbia Federal Court ordered that the Guardians Office be disbanded, ' David Miscavige [ head of scientology ] told them "You guys will be working for me for the rest of your lives"

Deac Finn was AG B1 {"Scientology Assistant Guardian for Bureau 1, Intelligence" ) in Boston, this is a dirty tricks division that still operates today under the name of "OSA" office of Special Affairs, which is int he same department of the same organization board used by Scientology to this day.

"That these defendants were willing to frame their critics to the point of giving false testimony under oath against them and having them arrested and indicted speaks legions for their disdain for the rule of law. Indeed, they arrogantly placed themselves above the law, meting out their personal brand of punishment to those 'guilty' of opposing their selfish aims.

"The crime committed by these defendants is of a breadth and scope previously unheard of. No building, office, desk, or file was safe from their snooping and prying. No individual or organization was free from their despicable conspiratorial minds. The tools of their trade were miniature transmitters, lock picks, secret codes, forged credentials, and any other device they found necessary to carry out their conspiratorial schemes. It is interesting to note that the founder of their organization, unindicted co-conspirator L. Ron Hubbard, wrote in his dictionary entitled Modern Management Technology Defined ... that 'truth is what is true for you.' Thus, with the founder's blessings they could wantonly commit perjury as long as it was in the interest of Scientology. The defendants rewarded criminal activities that ended in success and sternly rebuked those that failed. The standards of human conduct embodied in such practices represent no less than the absolute perversion of any known ethical value system.

"In view of this, it defies the imagination that these defendants have the unmitigated audacity to seek to defend their actions in the name of 'religion.' That these defendants now attempt to hide behind the sacred principles of freedom of religion, freedom of speech and the right to privacy -- which principles they repeatedly demonstrated a willingness to violate with impunity -- adds insult to the injuries which they have inflicted on every element of society."

-- Judge Richey in the sentencing of Mary Sue Hubbard and ten other Scientologists in October 1978 -- US District Court, Washington DC
