The Top 25 People Crippling Scientology, No. 21: Kendrick Moxon

GuessWhere5.jpg
On August 5, we started a countdown that will give credit -- or blame -- to the people who have contributed most to the sad current state of Scientology. From its greatest expansion in the 1980s, the church is a shell of what it once was and is mired in countless controversies around the world. Some of that was self-inflicted, and some of it has come from outside. Join us now as we continue on our investigation of those people most responsible...


The Top 25 People Crippling Scientology

#21: Kendrick Moxon, attorney for the church


KendrickMoxon.jpg
Moxon
Kendrick Moxon is very good at his job.

The Scientologist and attorney is renowned for making the prospect of litigating against the church a very uncomfortable experience -- and he's been at that work for quite a long time.

Moxon goes back so far, before he was an attorney he was caught up in the government's crackdown on Scientology's "Guardian Office," which carried out what is still the largest illegal infiltration of federal agencies in this country's history. That covert operation, dubbed "Operation Snow White" by the GO, was a massive undertaking, an attempt to quietly break into government offices to steal documents that were unflattering to Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. In 1977, four years after it began, the operation resulted in FBI raids in Washington D.C. and Los Angeles, and 11 church officials ultimately pleaded guilty or were convicted of obstructing justice and other charges. One of the officials was L. Ron Hubbard's wife, Mary Sue.

Hubbard himself, like Moxon, was named an "unindicted co-conspirator," and wasn't prosecuted.

Moxon then was a legal affairs employee in the Guardian's Office. He went on to become a lawyer, and these days, he's known for how uncomfortable he can make a deposition.

"He has made a career out of being a pit bull for the church in the legal arena," Mike Rinder says.

Rinder was a longtime high-ranking member of Scientology and its chief spokesman before he left the organization in 2007. He also, at one time, oversaw the Office of Special Affairs, which replaced the Guardian's Office as the church's intelligence and covert operations wing. And his work made him intimately familiar with Moxon's role.

"He's been a lawyer for the church from the early 1980s. He teamed up with a guy named Tim Bowles to form 'Bowles and Moxon.' But effectively, they were in-house counsel," he says.

"He is very good at needling people in depositions, and being smarmy and trying to get under people's skin. That's what he's renowned for. To needle and antagonize people and to get them to say things they probably didn't want to say," Rinder adds.

So if he's good at what Scientology wants him to do, why is he on this list? Take it from someone who's dealt with the guy -- he's one of the chief reasons Scientology has such a nasty, litigious reputation, and one that hardly seems to fit the nature of a "church."

"Tony, I couldn't agree with you more," Rinder said when I shared those thoughts with him. "Moxon epitomizes in the court system what the Squirrel Busters epitomize on the streets. The only people who think what Moxon and the Squirrel Busters do is cool is themselves. Everyone else looks at them and says, what a bunch of morons."

I have an anecdote that may shed some further light on what it's like to work with Moxon.

In 1999, I wrote a story about Scientology's use of "fair game" on the attorney Graham Berry, about how Moxon in particular had convinced a man named Robert Cipriano to testify to disgusting things about Berry by procuring Cipriano a home, a car, and a job -- and I had the documents in Moxon's name to prove it.

Moxon had come personally to our newspaper offices to try and argue our editor and our attorney out of printing the story. But as my attorney pointed out, you really can't argue with documents. The story ran, and Moxon went away. Or so I thought.

Some time later, I heard from Gerry Armstrong. If you don't know Gerry's story, you should really take the time to look it up. At one point he was so trusted personally by L. Ron Hubbard, he had been assigned the job of compiling information for what would be an official biography of the church founder. Later, he ran afoul of the church, which hounded him and hunted him down. By the time I talked to him, Gerry was living in Canada and had been through the wringer.

But Gerry was as enthusiastic as ever, and he wanted me to see a whole box full of documents that he had lying around. And you know when Gerry said he had documents, they were probably pure gold. I told him that of course I wanted to see them. Could he copy a set and mail it to me? I told him I'd be happy to pay his costs.

Offering to pay his copying costs was just standard journalistic good manners. After Gerry told me how much he'd spent to copy the hundreds of pages and then mail them, I had the newspaper send him a check for what he'd spent -- I think it was around $80.

A few days later, I got a call from Kendrick Moxon.

I couldn't imagine why he'd be calling. And what he did say completely stunned me.

"Paying your sources for stories now, Ortega?"

The little hairs on the back of my neck stood up. I think I fumbled through a bluff -- "I don't know what you're talking about, Moxon," or some such. "Of course we don't pay for stories," I told him before I managed to get off the phone.

To this day, I don't know whether Moxon had a mole in my office, or someone checking Gerry's mail, or how he figured out that I'd sent Gerry a check -- which, again, I will point out was completely proper. But the intent was clear -- to creep me out, to make me feel uncomfortable with something that was actually wholly legitimate, and to make me paranoid. And Kendrick Moxon is very, very good at that.

I would be surprised if our readers didn't have Moxon anecdotes of their own. Please share!

Honorary Mention: I know that some of our readers will howl if I don't also mention Moxon's current law partner, Helena Kobrin, along with him in this countdown.

Kobrin certainly etched her name in Scientology-watching history with her notorious 1995 attempt to have the legendary Usenet newsgroup "alt.religion.scientology" shut down. That only made ARS an overnight sensation and helped attract free speech activists to become critics of Scientology, a movement that continues to this day.

But Rinder suggests that Kobrin really doesn't deserve to be seen in the same light as Moxon. "She was told to do that by Warren McShane. Absolutely no question," Rinder says. McShane was president of the Religious Technology Center, a church entity that controls Scientology's trademarks, and for which Moxon and Kobrin work.

"She was put into a position that made her into an ogre. She didn't enjoy that," Rinder added. "She has a different personality than Rick Moxon. She did some things she probably shouldn't have done, but she did them because she was told to do it."

On Criminal Conspiracy and Pest Control:-----------------------------------------------------First off, there are known crimes committed by the 'Church' of Scientology (as an organization) and its agents. Many of them, over 60 years. Some of them have been prosecuted. But, by far the bulk of the crimes are *not* known to the public at large, meaning us. And, that's the problem. But, there is enough known to justify a police/criminal investigation into the organization. Because the *known* crimes, whether prosecuted or not, reveal a pattern of behavior. In 1977 the FBI poked a finger into one rotten facade of the Scientology building and thousands of termites fell out. Since then escaping termites have recounted their own (credible) stories of the mazes of termite tunnels throughout the entire building. And, every time someone pokes, just a little bit, there are more termites and rotten wood. Marty and Mike have probably the most complete maps of the termite tunnels of any supposedly 'escaped' termites. Nobody has the *full* map. But, Marty and Mike don't want to talk about it. Instead, they bring back reports of mold in the laundry room, ants in the pantry, a cockroach or two behind the Hubbard Cupboard, but, no termites. Ask them about termites and they'll say there probably are some (but, only if they're in the previously poked finger holes) but, in general, the house is sound. Except for the damn ants and cockroaches, and the people going around poking holes. If you poke holes in the facade of a house and, in every case, thousands of termites fall out, it's relatively sane to suspect a widespread infestation and many termites where you *haven't* poked. Yet. On another note, there's a lot of talk about 'statute of limitations'; most of it bullshit. Scientology Crime isn't only crime by individuals. The individuals didn't commit the crimes on their 'own origination' as the Scientologists would say. They didn't, for the most part, commit them for their own benefit. They commited the crimes *for* the 'Church' of scientology and to benefit and protect the 'Church' of Scientology and on orders from their 'seniors' in the Organization of Scientology. Scientology Crime is an *organized criminal conspiracy* that organizes the crimes, provides assistance in committing the crimes, plans the crimes, reaps the benefit of the crimes and even keeps records of and provides manuals (hat packs) for how to commit the crimes. And, there *is no statute of limitations* on crimes committed as part of an *ongoing criminal conspiracy*. And, by continuing to help *hide* the evidence of the crimes committed by the 'Church' of Scientology, Marty Rathbun and Mike Rinder are *still conspirators* in those crimes, whether they were committed last week or 20 years ago.

You don't 'cure' a termite infestation by squirting some poison into random poked holes and then painting over. 

Moxon is just one of the termites, like Marty and Mike used to be.  High ranking termites with a good idea of the extent of the infestation; yes.  But, we're gonna need the FBI etc. to do the termite inspection and pest control.

Where oh where did Mark Miglio go?

Has the countdown given Mark the fear? The fear of gawd, death and modern medical science? 

Or perhaps the fear of modern, monumental Journalism, the kind of Journalism where Journalists really do their research and fact checking before they publish? 

Is it possible that Mark has "blown the blog," never to be seen again?

I'm feeling conflicted about this. Part of me hopes Mark Miglio has blown this blog and another part of me yearns for those golden opportunities of rubbing Mark's nose in all the messes Mark makes on this blog. Treating him like an ugly, errant puppy that micturates, defecates and vomits all over the nice carpets that Tony has laid our for us to enjoy.

Tony, are you sure that 25 is enough for your countdown? Because you might run out of slots to allocate. You still have Tommy Davis, Tom Cruise, Nick Xenophon, Anonymous, 150,000 volunteer ministers, 8 million Scientologists, billions of body thetans and one and only LRH to cover.  I'd start the countdown from 50. Or maybe 75.

The Moxon entry is a hoot, good call Mr Ortega.The last time scientology tried to depose me, I got a check from Kendrick Moxon for $45.00 as a witness fee.. I never cashed  it as the money was slavers dollars and I wanted a souvenir of this exchange:Deposition starts with Video running, Scientology attorney Rosen doing questions:ROSEN: Mr Lerma why do you continue to say bad things about the Church of Scientology?LERMA: Mr. Rosen, are you referring to the international psychopolitical terrorist organization dba scientology and related entities, doing a brisk yet rapidly shrinking business defrauding the public worldwide?ROSEN: (Sputters) You can't talk about Church of Scientology that way!!LERMA: Mr Rosen, Are you trying to trick me into committing perjury on your behalf?ROSEN: This deposition is over!

I was physically removed from the steps of the Portland, Oregon 'church' last night. I was taking pictures of them scraping their signage of the building they occupied. I crept back in though and have some pretty funny and revealing photos. One showing a likely RPF member getting in my face and asking me who I was and what I was doing etc. Any Idea where I can post these for all to see?

Were it not for OSA's increasinly limited pool of sea orgers resolute enough to withstand the entheta being conspicuously absent from this comment thread, 100 comments would likely only be a starting figure.

Yet Thursday is almost upon us.  How about it OSA?  Mark (not OSA but) Miglio?  Care to step up to the plate on little Kendricks behalf?  Is it possible that he no longer has anyones shoulder to cry on?  Not even for some desperately needed stats?

Apparently so.

I say we all go back to N.Y. and hang with Tony for a few days!  Can you imagine the conversations?  Incredible to say the least!

Given the awesome name that Tony Ortega gave to this blog, AquaClara, I think the whole shit heap of fail is "Runnin' Scared."

Another astute poster on another recent thread pointed out the "cowardice" of these cult representatives on the Internet. All of them - deceitful, lying cowards. 

And whenever a spade is called a spade around here, it is met with bitter name-calling and "kill the messenger" reactions - akin to when pissed off children stick out their tongues and nod their head from side-to-side.

Consistently, the cult defenders demonstrate levels of intellectual and emotional maturity that would make a ten-year-old blush with embarrassment.

"So brainwashed they don't even know they're brainwashed...." is how a poster on another thread put it. I'm not able to forget that rather accurate description.

Arielle

I'm really curious to know who will be number one. It's a suspense worthy of Who Shot Jr.  My guess - David Miscavige. It is only fair. He is at the head of the church, and he is the one calling all the wrong shots. But then again giving him number one would be very anti-climatic. Please consider giving it to Louanne instead.

Thanks much! I worked for "Hollander Consultants" for a few years and was required to do courses and write O/Ws etc. The company is now called "Silkin Management". Hollander was started by Alan Hollander, is owned by Larry Silver and Fred King of Portland. I worked with Eric and Kathy Korb, Dave Worthen, Silver, King, Alan Jackson, Bob Martin, Bruce Posner and Murray Marvin to name a few. There are several OT8s there. I've been thinking about writing about the workings of this firm, which ultimately shares many cult characteristics.

Like I said, Top 100 would be easy to fill up.  But Top 25, like Tony hinted, would get us all humming in the hive, and of course, commenting.  I guess he knows what he's doing.

I myself have a bunch of esoteric entries, but that's just me.  For instance, I'd  inject Jim Berry in there, and then for #1 put in a tie between Berners-Lee and Cerf.

I'd guess Paulette and all the other writers of the classics (Russel Miller, Bent Corydon, Jon Attack & Margery Wakefield) would definitely round out the Top 10.

Also in all fairness - Ortega himself should be in the #3 spot ahead of Anons imho. But i reckon he's having way too much fun deeply embedded in his bunker in the thick of the scientology info war war-zone, to give himself the credit he deserves.

What about Paulette Cooper? She deserves a high up spot. I just recently read her article about Scientology from 1971 and she was a very lucid writer, and she wrote her book before it was fashinable.

I'm not familiar with this particular outfit. It sounds like they're "management consultants". The cult hides behind an amazing number of front groups, no small number of which are management consultancies operating under scientology's "W.I.S.E." umbrella which move in on businesses with the promise of vastly increasing their profitability through the implimentation of scientology tech.

Naturally, along with this comes increasingly costly courses for management and staff alike, high licensing fees for use of this "tech", ultimately the same sort of brainwashing that a garden variety pre-clear would eventually find themselves caught up in.

There's no end to the number of horror stories from business owners driven to ruin by having gotten caught up in these programs.

Looking forward to seeing more on this from your perspective.
