I see that my name has surfaced on Minerva's site with a story that typifies how far in the hole the culties have fallen. One OSAbot creates a story out of whole cloth and eighty others comment to say, "See! We told you that Marty was a squirrel!"
When I first announced my independence of the Church of Miscavige, I had four extra e-meters which I wanted to donate to people in the field who could use them. When I learned that Marty’s wife needed a meter, I asked him if I could send him one of my extra meters. (I use a Virtual Clarity Meter instead of church meters)
When I pulled the meters out of storage, I found that the batteries were corroded and one of the potentiometers was noisy.
I asked for advice about getting meters repaired on several forums and got the name of someone who was using the screen name of “esprit”. I managed to get in comm with him and asked him if he repaired meters. Esprit seemed a bit uneasy and wanted to know who I was and what I wanted.
I told him I was donating a meter to Marty Rathbun and wanted to make sure it was working properly before sending it down to Texas.
He told me he had worked in Golden Era Productions and was the Director of the division that handled the E-Meter, but he did not repair meters any more.
He did not have any information on replacement batteries, but did send me information on replacing the potentiometer.
I decided to discard any meter that needed replacement parts and kept only those that needed batteries. I went online and found new battery packs of the same size and ratings as the church-installed battery packs and replaced the old batteries.
I tested the meters against working meters and selected one that matched the performance of a new meter in every way. This is what I sent to Monique.
That was months ago and now I have been alerted to the fact that “esprit” alias Joe Besnard was or is an OSA terminal. He writes for one of the church-supported disinformation sites and he managed to twist almost every fact of our conversation in an effort to damage Marty Rathbun. This is his article with my corrections in black.
I have been a Scientologist since 1982 – as public, org staff and then I became a Sea Org member for 21 years. I also worked in Golden Era Productions and was the Director of HEM (the division in Gold that handles the E-Meter). Then I was demoted and later declared. I went on with my life, creating my own business. I know Marty Rathbun, Mike Rinder, Steve Hall and most of his small clique of people that were at the Int Base when I was there. Each one was involved in their own crap just like me.
The following is a true story:
One day I got a call from a David St. Laurence who wanted to know if I could fix up some E-Meters that he had gotten from Marty Rathbun (who had sent them to him to get them fixed). He contacted me in turn, as I had worked in HEM for at least 15 years. I asked him what the problem was – he described it to me: white powder and corrosion inside of the E-Meter. He said that Marty was auditing using his E-Meters with expired Silver Certs and that they would R/S occasionally and that’s why Marty wanted to use other E-Meters to audit with. Marty forwarded to him an old Mark VI and a Mark VII so he could “fix” them.
So many errors it is hard to know where to begin.
I asked if he fixed meters as I was going to SEND one to Marty. I had 3 Mark VIIs and one Mark VI.
The meter with a bad pot was noisy. One does not use meters with noisy pots.
I do not know what meters Marty uses. We never discussed it. Esprit made this part up out of whole cloth. Where is that point on the tone scale where the facts are not only reversed, but are twisted so they make no sense at all?
As a very experienced person in handling Standard E-Meters, I knew this was really screwed up. And it told me all I needed to know. When this person asked me what he should do, I told him to go to the nearest trash can and dump them – as these E-Meters were toast and you would NEVER audit someone on an E-Meter like that – ever – unless you only intend to wreck their case. I felt bad as I had even offered my services to help fix E-Meters for these squirrels.
He suggested that I dump the Mark VI as it was not repairable and I did that.
After seeing what Marty audited with and how it violated everything I have read from LRH on the E-Meter, I knew Marty was a hard-core SP.
Total dub-in from the OSA bot as neither he or I know what Marty audits with.
This incident made me realize how evil these people are and that they would lie through their teeth to make themselves right. I saw that they are NOT using Standard Auditing Codes and E-Meter procedures but inviting new, offbeat Squirrel “technology” – sending people OFF The Bridge – not onto it.
More dub-in from this unbelievably degraded representative of the Church of Miscavige.
To make a long story short, Joe Bedsnard says he rejoined the church(I don’t believe he ever left) and now writes articles saying how evil everyone is on the outside.
A truly sad story by JY Besnard (formerly “Esprit”). If you know Joe, tell him his help was appreciated, but he got his facts mixed up.
This is only one example of the disinformation generated by the party faithful on their anti-Marty sites. It confirms what I have been writing all along, The Church of Miscavige creates degraded beings. They may not start out that way, but after a few years, the truth is no longer in them.
