Heat gets turned up on Narconon

On October 30, Oklahoma City TV station News9 aired two video pieces about Narconon’s desperate attempts to divert investigative attention away from Scientology Inc.

This was done by Scientology Inc taking the unusual step of having the CEO of Narconon Arrowhead Gary Smith be interviewed on camera to deny allegations that Narconon is run by, managed by, and orchestrated by the Church of Scientology.

It’s a sure sign that Gary Smith is being thrown to the wolves, since his Royal Majesty David Miscavige still considers himself immune from lowering himself to being interviewed on-camera.

The interviews were posted less than a week after news of a wrongful death lawsuit concerning the third death in less than a year being reported by Narconon Arrowhead.

Lawsuits are now piling up against Narconon Arrowhead.

And the claims by Scientology Inc and Narconon Toads that Narconon isn’t Scientology are piling up, too. It’s obvious that when lawsuits are piling up, you want to protect the “deep pockets” in Scientology Inc. And if a link can be made between Narconon, Scientology Inc, and the IAS, there’s enough deep pockets to go around.

Another fearsome problem is that if the financial resources of the IAS get subpoenaed for purposes of the lawsuits, the data becomes public knowledge, and there goes Miscavige’s covert fundsgathering operation.

That’s several of the reasons someone should leak the IAS 2012 event footage.

If it can be shown that Miscavige is taking credit for Narconon in the IAS 2012 video, that can be evidence discrediting Gary Smith’s claims that there’s no link between Scientology Inc and Narconon.

Today, Las Vegas TV reporter Nathan Baca has posted a two-part report on how the Narconon center in Caliente, Nevada (just north of Las Vegas) is running its center without state regulation. You can look at these links for part one and part two of the reports.

Warning! The News8 reports give out OT III details, so if you’re still frightened by that, don’t go read the reports.

The key point of Baca’s report is that he says the Nevada state regulators aren’t allowed to inspect Narconon Caliente because the center doesn’t accept state money, and the current regulations only require state inspectors be allowed in if the facility accepts state money.

He also reports that state regulators are looking to eliminate that loophole in the next legislative session.

P.S. As a hint to the lawyers filing the Narconon lawsuits, go to ftp://cofs-events.org and grab as many church videos as you can. Especially the IAS videos. Then you’ll be able to deflect attempts by church lawyers to say “Narconon isn’t part of the Church of Scientology”. The respository is going to be taken down soon, so move fast.

I was a student/patient at Narconon Arrowhead who knew Stacy Murphy before her untimely death. It was evident to me from the oversized LRH pictures prominently displayed in every ‘classroom’ and plastered pretty much everywhere else that this was a guy who people in Scientology Inc wanted us to think was adored…And it’s hard to claim that Narconon doesn’t have anything to do with a “church” called Scientology when you see all those pictures.

Don’t worry.

Nathan “Brass Balls” Baca knows all about cult deception – It’s why he made sure he had copies of the OT III materials, in Hubbard’s own handwriting, before asking Tommy Davis about it… And proceeded to bear-trap the Cult of Miscavige’s mouthpiece when (as expected) TD lied about it.

For those who are comfortable confronting the data, but have not seen the clip, it’s here (Mediators, feel free to delete link if you feel it’s necessary


The clip is quite spectacular, and a prime example of why you should never use lies in PR.

My money is that NB is watching the usual sources for the IAS leak… I’m sure TonyO will be sharing if/when a copy comes his way

I was at the grand opening of Narconon Arrowhead in August 2001.
It was openly promoted,that the purchase of the Arrowhead facilities were “graciously made possible by a generous grant by the IAS”.
If I recall correctly,Gary Smith spoke to the audience and thanked the IAS for making Narconon Arrowhead financially possible.
Also,other events shortly afterwards (new years 2002 event, 2002 LRH birthday event) would have promoted IAS funding of Narconon Arrowhead.

Now, Dan… Your comment is very interesting to me.

For some time now (before Anonymous came on the scene, AFAICT) the main London org has been promoted as an “IAS-Sponsored Ideal Org”

That, to me, has always meant that the Org itself is insolvent, an
has to be propped up by IAS handouts. Certainly, London is in big trouble, with some reports suggesting that people were being bussed up from Saint Hill to do their courses there, presumably to inflate the delivery stats.

Does this fit with your experience? And more to the point, if there is continual IAS outflow to non-Noisy Investigation sources, what does this mean in terms of the total funds in the War Chest?
