    As someone on Tony O's asked, have we seen any narCONon in the Birthday Game? (We have seen them as direct donors to the IAS, but the Birthday Game is for bOrgs.)

    "faith-based healing is exempt from the licensing requirements of N.R.S. Chapter 630."

    Ah, so now NarCONon plays the religion card, except they always claimed that their business was secular before this new statement.

  4. I created a thread on ESMB based on Wolfbane's discoveries with HTs to his posts on WWP:

    Narconon admits it is "faith-based healing" based on the religion of Scientology

    In the Motion by Defendants A.B.L.E. and Narconon International to dismiss the Complaint in the action entitled Geanacopulos v. Narconon, United States District Court for the District of Nevada, Case No. 2:14-cv-00629-JCM-NJK, on page 23 under heading 10 Defendants A.B.L.E. and Narconon International assert:

    Faith Based-001.PNG

    HT - WWP:

    Similarly, in the Motion to Dismiss by Defendant Narconon Fresh Start, d/b/a Rainbow Canyon Retreat, in the action entitled Yates v. Narconon, United States District Court for the District of Nevada, Case No. 2:14-cv-00837-GMN-NJK, said defendant argues at page 16 under heading 1 for the RICO claim of relief:




    HT - WWP:


    A quick note on the merits of the various personal injury and fraud cases against Narconon. To the extent Narconon's counsel has admitted, and indeed even asserted, that Narconon is "faith-based healing" based on the religion of Scientology, said counsel has also admitted that any representations by Narconon that it was secular and/or was not based on the religion of Scientology were false and fraudulent.

    Oh, come on, they haven't said that narCONon is faith based, have they? They'll just say "Oh, we just threw that in there for artistic purposes."

    What happened to the "cognitive behaviour modification therapy" that narCONon was doing?
    So, now the cons call it "faith-based therapy", when they fear getting shut down for malpractice and killing people.
    What an affirmative defense this would be to medical malpractice!
    1. Doctor kills patients.
    2. State and patient's families prosecute doctor.
    3. Doctor claims he was doing "faith healing".

    Then we have them. They can't have it both ways.

    Furthermore, i do not believe that Americans would be happy knowing that their tax money sent addicts to a scientlogy based rehab.
    This is a lot of ammunition that is now easily available to legal teams fighting narconon.

    the big question: is how do we get this in the hands of people that need it, and could use it to shut the place down?

    The 'come on' scripts they use to reel in the marks specifically says narCONon is secular, not religious. If they now claim it's faith based, they're admitting to committing fraud when talking to the mark.

    isn't that the core of scientology?

    This is a huge step for shutting down narconon. On top of everything else going on, there is now complete evidence that they have been defrauding people for years, as a faith based rehab.

    Furthermore, based on articles here, they LIED to the courts about it being scientific. I believe crusty ally was testifying in that trial about how it cured her drug habit....

    Yes, Narconon does play the 'Birthday Game' ... we played it at NN TR around the
    time NN Int was there and we, as staff, were taught crazy Chinese School crap.

    And each time a Registrar 'LANDED' a new body in the shop, a staff would walk in the hallway
    ringing a Tea-Time kind of bell.

    This was around the same time as the ED was replaced with an ESTO Officer who was
    changing the ORG Board staff posts. It was a huge ORG Board hanging on a wall.

    Would be nice if another Ex-NN Staff member could/would step forward and post details
    of the abuses, fraud, exploitation, sex crimes, misrepresentation, coercion, and human rights
    violations and abuses they witnessed and documented while INSIDE.

    Narconon is a dangerous Cult no different than the Cult of Scientology.:(

    NarCONon (scientology) used that photo without permission. Contacting J.K. Rowling and linking it to him would definitely start a lawsuit to get it removed right away. It would definitely expose the cult's OSA/fair fail game policy too, if they attack him.

    Scientologists call themselves “the most ethical people on the planet” because, well, founder L. Ron Hubbard told them to say that, and Ron had a great talent for saying things that were the complete opposite of what they meant.

    Anyway, it’s always fun to keep in mind that Scientologists believe they’re more ethical than the rest of us when in fact they’re so truthy and fraudy. And that only seems to be picking up speed now that the organization is getting increasingly desperate. Thanks to our great tipsters, we have a couple of memorable examples to share with you.

    First, we were tipped that Scientology’s drug rehab in Egypt (there’s a Narconon in Egypt? We had no idea) put the advertisement you see above on its Facebook page.

    Really, Scientology? J.K. Rowling, the author of the Harry Potter series and one of the most successful writers of all time, is now endorsing your unscientific and embattled drug rehab program?

    We had an inkling that might not be the case, so we notified Ms. Rowling’s representatives. They were pretty tight-lipped with us, but after we received the following e-mail, we have a feeling “Narconon Egypt” is going to be getting a talking to:

    Dear Tony

    Your email has been passed onto us, as we handle the PR for J.K. Rowling.

    Thank you for drawing our attention to this advert. The matter is being looked into, but we won’t be commenting further.

    Scientology boss admits connection to Narconon drug rehab

    By David Love,

    Yesterday, August 31, 2014, a prominent spokesperson for Scientology, Graeme Wilson, may have put his foot in mouth during an interview in Scotland yesterday.

    Wilson admitted to the Herald Scotland reporter, Peter Swindon that Scientology’s “Truth About Drugs” campaign is a precursor to referring people to Scientology’s drug rehab, Narconon.

    “Wilson said he would refer addicts in Scotland to Narconon, adding: "If somebody asked us if we know of any good rehabs we would definitely give them that as a referral.”

    L. Ron Hubbard instructed and warned Scientologists that, “… it is our experience that interviews are better forgotten and that press releases should not be engaged upon and that reporters should not be granted interviews, whatever they promise.” – L. Ron Hubbard page 990 OEC Volume 7.

    Narconon Director of Legal Affairs, Andre Ahern, swallowed his foot in an interview with CBC TV NEWS in Canada when he admitted, “…he is a Scientologist and that Narconon uses the teachings of Scientology in its program.”

    Yesterday’s spin-doctoring attempt by Scientology spokesperson, Graeme Wilson, began when the Herald Scotland published a news story with headline: “Scientologists use anti-drugs campaign to target families - An anti-drugs campaign targeting Scotland is funded by the Church of Scientology, the Sunday Herald can reveal.”

    I'm 99% certain that this is a great big Narconon referral trap, because it sure smells that way. It lists a lot of non-Narconon rehabs (probably ripped from a government list), but the real payload of the 166 sites is the phone number: 866-567-4793. (Note that this number has changed over the years.)

    If someone is good at social engineering and bored, they could call it and see if they just happen to steer to a Narconon location.,6798.msg34620.html#msg34620

    PUSSYFOOTIN' WITH "PURR": Per Wickstrom's New Stealth Referral Site

    Friday, September 5, 2014

    Per Wickstrom's launched another sneaky way to get his paws into your wallet!

    Wickstrom, CEO of Best Drug Rehabilitation and one of 82 named defendants in the NAFC's massive trademark violation lawsuit against Narconon International and the Church of Scientology, recently launched yet another stealth addiction treatment referral service:

    Wickstrom’s PR efforts describe the site as a “no-cost 24/7 confidential referral service where trained counselors provide guidance, advice and program information to people who want to help a loved one win their battle against drug or alcohol addiction.”

    (The sound you just heard was the snort coming from my surgically-altered nose!)

    On July 31, Wickstrom announced that had entered into a “sponsorship partnership” with country singer Jared Blake. As part of the sponsorship, Blake has created an intimate acoustic break within his high-energy show, where he sits alone on stage and talks to audiences about his personal struggles, and most importantly, about winning back his life – and how others can, too.
