We received this email today. It is fascinating especially since it was written just over a year ago. It’s a summary of a briefing given by Bruce Wiseman of CCHR at the Fraser mission in the US.
It gives some insight into the mind of the church as it stands today. The hemorrhaging of active and onlines Scientologists, the mass ex communicating of long standing members, the massive financial mismanagement is seen not as any kind of internal problem but rather the “enemy” in its dying throes.

Subj: Bruce Wiseman's briefing at the Fraser Mansion.
Bruce Wiseman, IAS Freedom Medal Winner and President of CCHR US, was in town last week making Congressional visits
He then gave a briefing last Friday night at the National Affairs Office. Below is a data summary from the briefing.
number of pro-psych bills being pushed through Congress at this time – highest ever (at least 5) law suits against big pharma has triggered massive shut downs of psych research centers world wide – dozens state level mental health funding chopped by recent financial sequester psych funding terminated from Blue Cross Blue Shield in Florid
Police state detail: a new government program now being implemented – teams of government psychologists will patrol airports, concerts and sports events with police dogs. They are trained to seek out terrorists that are identified by “micro facial expressions”. Funding for thousands of unmanned drones to be used by law enforcement in this country
number of black PR hits against Scientology – rising drastically
The enemy is now on death ground; this is a concept from the book The Art of War by Sun-tzu. It describes soldiers in battle, who when surrounded and facing imminent death become empowered and ferocious as they desperately fight for their lives. And that this is a war that will not have a treaty with concessions exchanged between sides. One party will be left standing in the end. And that the end is not so far off.
So in 2013 we are stepping into a year of unprecedented expansion coupled with powerful new technical releases that will shake the timbers and send the screaming squirrels around the bend. And just for a sprinkle of randomity our arch enemy is on death ground mounting their final charge
Get the picture?
As our VM Tent is particularly visible, accessible and vulnerable, I am sending this out to a select group of VMs, particularly, Clears, OTs and other competent Scientologists so that you may assume responsibility for this situation. But the truly positive and exciting side to all this is that with the new TV and Internet ads bringing 1 million visits a week to the Scientology web site, so the traffic at the tent will be out the roof.
The tent goes out every Sunday starting March 31st. On Sunday the 24th we are having a planning and coordination meeting at the Fraser Mansion at 10 AM.
I look forward to seeing you there.
There is never any looking back and evaluating, only marveling at what is coming in the future. The above mail states that in 2013 they are stepping into a year of unprecedented expansion. In November it was the opening of the flood gates to the bridge, in Feb 2014 it was making all orgs Ideal in 2014. None of which came to pass and none of which will. There will be no looking around to ask “what happened?” only another look to 2015 and how amazing it will all be then.
The only conscience, the only challenge will come from people like us coldly calling to the light of day the empty promises.
There are already a number of people who forward us data and snippets of information. What we are particularly interested in now is every communication that makes a future promise. Please forward these to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to call each to task.
And let’s not forget that we have one month to go until our 6 month review of the effect of the release of GAT II.
And what of the “enemy” referred to? That’s you and we they’re talking about. Those that have left either overtly or quietly and are calling the outpoints. Those that have chosen to practice as Scientologists away from the controlling domination of the church. The church desperately wishes us all to fall under a label – “squirrels” or “the enemy” or some such. Yet the one defining characteristic of those who leave is the refusal to be shaped into a group or a direction. Each takes their own journey.
Are we collectively on “death ground”?
If you are still able to, go to your local org. Look around. The long list of people who are no longer there have packed their things and are over here on death’s ground. The list grows daily. This alleged death ground is remarkably open with sunshine and the absence of threatening shadows.
