Is Lisa Marie Presley Telling Off Scientology in a Song?

Categories: Scientology

For a couple of days now, our excellent tipsters have been alerting us to this new song from Lisa Marie Presley.

It's not that they're big Lisa Marie fans -- although this song really isn't bad, I must say. No, the reason Scientology Watchers are fascinated by Lisa Marie's new single, "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet," released ahead of her new album Storm and Grace, is that the lyrics of this song sure read like a big middle finger to the Church of Scientology.

Give it a listen, and then let's go over the lyrics together.

LMPStorm.jpg
In recent weeks, we'd heard rumblings that Presley, a longtime member, had grown disaffected with Scientology and had quietly walked away from it. (Similar rumors have been heard for years, so that's nothing new.)

If she has left, it won't be the first time a big-name celebrity ditched the church. As we reported earlier, even Tom Cruise spent a full decade all but out of Scientology while he was with Nicole Kidman, but both Cruise and the church managed to keep it quiet at the time.

Other celebrities, like actor Jason Beghe, have made their exits in a more noisy way.

So has Lisa Marie "blown," as they say in Scientology? Well, let's look at the lyrics...


You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet

Lay down the law, don't make a sound
Just critical, just going down
I don't belong, I've lost the plot
Not gullible, can't be what I'm not

You can think that I'm evil and I'm off the rails
You ain't seen nothin' yet

If I don't get with your system then I'm sure to fail
Well you ain't seen nothin' yet

Lay down the truth, don't make a sound
Just a piece of fruit who's hit the ground
I don't respond, I've lost the plot
Unethical, not what I thought

You can think that I'm evil and I'm off the rails
You ain't seen nothin' yet

I'm a bit transgressive and suppressive as well
Well you ain't seen nothin' yet

Am I a disruption to your corruption?
You ain't seen nothin' yet

You can think that I'm evil and I'm off the rails
You ain't seen nothin' yet

If I don't get with your system then I'm sure to fail
You ain't seen nothin' yet

No longer elated, now you're frustrated
You ain't seen nothin' yet

You can think that I'm evil and I'm off the rails
You ain't seen nothin' yet

If I don't get with your system then I'm sure to fail
Well you ain't seen nothin' yet

You can think that I'm evil and I'm off the rails
You ain't seen nothin' yet

I'm a bit transgressive and suppressive as well
You ain't seen nothin' yet

For some thoughts about the song, I turned to Jefferson Hawkins, a man who at one time was in charge of marketing Dianetics to the world, and someone with a lot of expertise about both Scientology and messages in media. I asked Jeff, is Lisa Marie telling the church not so subtly to keep away from her?

Wow, it sure looks like it. I think the key is the use of the terms "unethical" and "suppressive," which are definitely Scientology-speak. It sounds to me like they are putting pressure on her and calling her out-ethics and suppressive, and this is her response -- you ain't seen nothing yet. Love it.

When Scientology excommunicates someone, it declares them a "suppressive person" or "SP," and instructs other Scientologists to "disconnect" from the SP -- even the members of the SP's own family. Church members live in fear of being "declared," and will do almost anything to stay in the good graces of the church so they can remain in contact with other family members.

No Scientologist of good standing would describe themselves (even jokingly) "a bit suppressive," as Lisa Marie labels herself here.

I also showed the lyrics to Chuck Beatty, a longtime former Scientologist with deep expertise in the church's arcane "technology" and lingo. Here's what he had to say...

Clearly it's way beyond what would be acceptable for a Scientologist in the fold to be implying, so it sounds to me like it's her declaration of "fuck you" to Scientology. Her use of the words suppressive, transgressive, critical, truth, and system all clearly would be taken as bad indicators at Scientology celebrity headquarters. The attitude sure sounds reminiscent of Elvis's "fuck you" comments to Scientology. Good for her!

I've put in an interview request to Lisa Marie's publicist, and let's hope that she wants to share with us her thoughts on the song.

I'm struck not only with the word "suppressive," which seems a dead giveaway, but also with the general thrust of the song. I mean, your typical pop song isn't likely to have this kind of sentiment in it...

"If I don't get with your system then I'm sure to fail"

Former Scientologists -- and I've talked to quite a few -- all tell me that one of the scariest things that faced them when they dropped out of the Scientology "system" was that they had been warned by church officials that they were ill-equipped to survive the "wog" (non-Scientology) world outside the organization, and that they would surely fail if they left the Sea Org, for example.

Also, for someone coming to the realization that they no longer belong in Scientology (and will suffer from "ethics" officers on the way out), there is hardly a more fitting characterization than...

"I don't respond, I've lost the plot
Unethical, not what I thought"

And with the church mired in controversy, with allegations of shocking abuse appearing in court testimony and in new press revelations, her words of warning to church leadership seem especially ominous...

"Am I a disruption to your corruption?
You ain't seen nothin' yet"

Well, we're obviously reading a lot of things into these lyrics that Lisa Marie may not have intended, but at the minimum this is an extremely unusual statement for a longtime Scientologist to make, and we hope she speaks publicly about it soon. (And hopefully, to us!)

Nancy Cartwright Going Godlike in Ohio

Last week, we pointed out how unusual it was that Nancy Cartwright -- the voice of Bart Simpson and one of the biggest personal funders of the Church of Scientology -- had agreed to show up at this year's Writers of the Future gala, an event the church, in the past, has tried to hold at arm's length from Scientology itself.

An alert tipster pointed out to us that Cartwright is also making another public appearance soon -- she'll be the commencement speaker at Ohio University's graduation ceremony on June 9.

Hey, kids, when you're getting your diplomas, you might ask Cartwright about the interesting statement she made to Australian journalist Bryan Seymour during an episode of Today Tonight...

Fast forward to the 9:03 mark, and you'll hear Cartwright say the following...

I believe that there is a power that I am striving for. I think the best way to describe that would be to name that "God," you know? And ideally I would have to say that I am striving to be that God.

Cowabunga! Well, Nancy, we suppose that after a donation like $10 million, Scientology is happy to call you God. Or anything else!

Orange County Represents!

After the kind of cringeworthy music videos we've seen from Scientologists in Melbourne, Denmark, Birmingham, and Phoenix, this latest promo from the folks in Orange County seems almost hip by comparison.

Almost makes you want to join staff, doesn't it?

Gerry Armstrong Knocks 'Em Dead in Moscow

Gerry's looking dapper in this apparently new video from a talk he gave in Russia. As we've written before, few have gone through such legal harassment at the hand of Scientology as Gerry Armstrong. And in this video, he appears to give a compelling talk about his experiences -- but is it just us, or does this Russian audience look like it's barely awake? What gives?

Next time, Gerry, maybe some visual aids?

Mike Wallace and Scientology

I met Mike Wallace one time. It was in 2001, and I had gone to Howard University to do some recruiting for our company. At the time I was a staff writer for New Times Los Angeles, a newspaper that no longer exists. Wallace was there to give a presentation, and by pure chance I had the opportunity to introduce myself before his talk.

And I had something to talk to him about. Some months earlier, he had done a hard-hitting piece for 60 Minutes about some secret LAPD documents that had been smuggled out, showing that the department had a shameful record of covering up domestic violence assaults by its own officers. At that time, the source of those documents was still secret. Now, some months later, that whistleblower, Bob Mullaly, was facing prison time for getting those shameful records out to the public. I was fortunate enough to tell Bob's story, and I happened to have a copy with me. I showed it to Wallace, and he gave me a big smile -- he was happy to see that Mullaly, a brave man who had risked so much so that the victims of assault would not remain silent, was getting his story told. We chatted about Mullally for a while, and Wallace was keen to learn how his legal case was going.

In other words, Mike Wallace was as gracious and encouraging to a fellow journalist as you would imagine -- even to a guy from a small Los Angeles paper he'd probably never heard of.

Anyway, after the news of Wallace's death this weekend, Xenubarb reminded me of this great clip, when 60 Minutes profiled Paulette Cooper. Enjoy it, and remember what a lion of the craft Wallace was...


We'll finish up with a couple of links. In Canada, Narconon gets another black eye, courtesy of the ever-vigilant David Love: a mother in Toronto tells the CBC that she's out $10,000 after sending her drug addict son to the Trois-Rivières Narconon center that Love has been exposing for years.

Perhaps some day even distraught parents will learn to put the word "Narconon" in a Google search before writing checks for tens of thousands of dollars, and we can stop reading these stories about people having no idea that the places are a front for Scientology. Sigh.

Also, Rupert Murdoch's iPad publication, The Daily, returns with yet another piece of its own on Scientology's front groups. After fine pieces about Scientology's premier high school, Delphi, and its strange Hubbard College of Administration, the Daily is back with a piece about Scientology's "study tech" and its infiltration of school districts through tutoring. Taking advantage of the No Child Left Behind law, Scientology's Applied Scholastics has managed to worm its way into districts around the country, writes the Daily's Noreen O'Donnell.

Between the Daily's vigilance on Scientology's education front groups, more bad news for Narconon in Canada, and our interest in the writers contest, the church's secular wings have been under some intense scrutiny lately, haven't they?

At the top of every story, you'll see the "Scientology" category which, if you click on it, will bring up all of our most recent stories.

As for hot subjects we've covered here, you may have heard about Debbie Cook, the former church official who rebelled and is now being sued by Scientology. You might have also heard about the Super Power Building, Scientology's "Mecca," whose secrets were revealed here. We also reported how Scientology spied on its own most precious object, Tom Cruise. (We wrote Tom an open letter that he has yet to respond to.) Have you seen a Scientology ad on TV lately? We debunked some of the claims in that 2-minute commercial you might have seen while watching Glee or American Idol.

Other stories have looked at Scientology's policy of "disconnection" that is tearing families apart. You may also have heard something about the Sea Org experiences of the Paris sisters, Valeska and Melissa, and their friend Ramana Dienes-Browning. We've also featured Paulette Cooper, who wrote about Scientology back in the day, and Janet Reitman, Hugh Urban, and the team at the Tampa Bay Times, who write about it today. And there's plenty more coming.

I eventually tracked down the blind item from CDAN about this..... he's the 'secret Hollywood entertainment lawyer' who is pretty much regarded as the No 1 media gossip source and has a pretty much 100% track record when it comes to eventual reveals. Also the 100 or so comments pretty much all nailed it on as being LMP

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2012Today's Blind Items - Escaping Your Church

This once upon a time almost B+ list female singer is now more famous for being famous. Hey, at least it keeps her wealthy. She is also known for being a devout member of this church. She recently left it though after she suffered a nervous breakdown and went on an alcohol binge that would make Arthur proud. She went to rehab and while in rehab began seeing a psychiatrist. Uh oh. She also left her church which is never a good thing. However, if you are wealthier it is easier to avoid them. They knock at her door everyday and dig through her trash, but she just hires more and more security to keep them all away and stays locked inside her house. It is a stand off. Oh, the tales she will be able to tell. But what about her kids? Her other relatives who are also in the church?

The Mike Wallace piece is familiar. It's all coming clear.  That they have the separation between Writers of the Future and the body, has a certain logic. The former, by its nature, has knowledge. Though the genre is fictitious, it still must follow the laws of physics, science to remain viable. The point of the genre, is that, if you want the mechanics of the universe to behave differently, you have to find a tool, i.e. mathematical process, that changes that physical law. Real scientists test it, and get very excited when life imitates art. These are the people you can not fool.  Harlan Ellison won the Hugo Award 9.5 times. Does this make his a Suppressive Deity?

The simplest suggestion would be to not elect a Republican president. 

The second one is to not go to WWP for any information about public education and SCN Narconon, etc., but rather use this site  This site is both secure and Tony keeps a sharp eye out for problems with posting, although he states that it is not moderated.  I have already spotted uniformed misdirection nonsense about public education, SCN and Narconon on WWP.  WWP lost its credibility late last Fall on these issues, IMHO.

I do not know what state you are in .... some are very knowledgeable  about the challenge to public education by fundamentalists of all stripes and some are not.  Right now, just report, in this forum, anything you know about Narconon Drug Education and/or AS in public education and/or study tech in charter schools.  There is a small team with nationwide public education contacts to help when a district is getting challenged .... like what happened just recently in Pinellas County Florida with the take-over of a charter school by NOI working with SCN.

Hang in there and thanks for the kind words.

Although I've never personally been interested in Lisa Marie Presley talent wise, "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet" pulls my strings. Love the musical tone of it, and sure like the lyrics.

I just followed the link to "The Daily" article (http colon //www.thedaily dot com/page/2012/04/09/040912-news-scientology-tutoring-1-2/) and found several errors that cannot be corrected because there are no links to the writer.

Although the writer claims to have seen the AS IRS filings for 2010, she did not link to them, so there is no way to examine them.  I am going another route to get them.

And although California is not presently asking for a waiver to some of the Title 1 provisions, including the SES program, this does not mean that AS is being used OR that only SES programs are being used for after school programs in this state and this is true for all states.  There are many programs in the SES after-school State list from which districts can choose and they do so, as well as programs not on the list.

In Chicago alone, 80,000 + kids were eligible for SES after-school tutoring, so "The Daily's" statement that AS claims to have served 1,600 kids in 2010 shows, even if found to be true, how little access to public education that AS had.  Did AS get names of students on the AS SES lists? I am sure.  Were they tutored?  I am not sure if they were and if they were "tutored," for how long and from what state/district and were they in fact tutored by AS.

Sloppy reporting on a complicated serious topic.

SCN right now is trying to silence knowledgable people reporting on SCN's relationship with public education to SCN-related blogs, using OSA and OSA-bots (people who claim not be SCN/OSA and yet behave just as badly).  The tactics that they use do not work in the long run.  

With a presidential election year in full swing, many fundamentalist groups are setting themselves up to get access to public education funding, if a Republican wins, as they did when Bush was elected.  SCN is just part of the pack.

(here we go again... this REPLY was in response to Roggy McGee's question on why the Scion wearing a Ministers Collar in the Mike Wallace Interview)

There are 'Ministers' within the church... they perform wedding's and such.. but it is extremely rare to see them in the "Collar".

That Collar was really just another Scion 'PR' Stunt for the media camera's.

The COS never lets a opportunity to pass to align themselves with other 'mainstream' religions.... if the United States was largely Buddhist... you would see them sitting there in Orange Robes.... and I am not joking... though it is funny.

I hope that Lisa's publicist reads this post and the comments.  If the publicist does, I also hope that he/she conveys our general message to LMP, which is one of overwhelming support if she's speaking out against the Church of Scientology.  Her music isn't one I particularly enjoy but I surely will buy her album if she speaks out publicly.  

The publicity she would get for speaking out would be great for her album.  And the growing army of Scientology critics would be a nice spike in album sales.

I will definitely buy multiple copies of her album if she goes public about leaving scientology.  I would give it to all my friends. I would wear a Lisa Marie T-shirt.  I would like her Facebook page and follow her on Twitter.  I don't even know if her music is any good!

Nancy, I've often wondered how you got into Scientology, and now I know:-

"finding a religion that you wanted to embrace, meeting a guy and falling in love, and then having a baby, and they all happened within such a short amount of time and everything else has just been straight up for me."

Wow Nancy, you attribute meeting a guy, falling in love and having a baby in a short amount of time to Scientology? I could joke about my own mother and father's lack of Scientology being an obstacle to them having me, but really the silliness of this testimony stands up on its own.

But didn't you then divorce that guy in 2002? And didn't a later OTV boyfriend commit suicide? Do you attribute both those events to Scientology also? I guess not, because you've been taught to associate anything good in your life as Scientology "wins", and anything bad as your fault.

And I've also often wondered what keeps someone like you in Scientology given the huge personal cost, and negative publicity:-

"I believe that there is a power that I am striving for. I think the best way to describe that would be to name that God, and ideally I would have to say that I am striving to be that God."

So you have completely bought into the BS, which is that you will have God-like powers, that you will become in effect, a God. Wow. When you believe that is attainable, I guess you would donate $10M.

Finally, I wonder how you will feel, as you near the end of your life, no closer to God-like powers than any other mortal human being on this planet. What a shame your involvement in an astute, intelligent and observational parody such as The Simpsons has not rubbed off on you.

Not to mention that supposedly her fiance committed suicide because he was caught embezzling funds that he was supposedly funneling to Co$. If true I think that would put anyone off their "Church" of choice.

 Are you sure you're not confusing Steve Brackett with Rex Fowler? Fowler's the one who stole money, gave it to Scientology, shot his partner on his son's 7th birthday, and gave himself a bullet lobotomy.

Steve Brackett jumped off a bridge. Scilons were told he died in a car wreck. Neither thing should happen if you're OT.

 Cool, thanks. Tch...Brackett stole money. Fowler stole money. Scientology received stolen money.

Is there a Fraud Handbook or what? Does stealing seem like a good idea? An awful lot of Scientologists seem to think so.

Like the people who ran the Applied Scholastics Academy here....ran it into $50,000 debt, and funneled money from their event planning biz to keep it open. Not only did they lose the building they were leasing for the school, they lost the building they were using for weekend wedding parties and such. Same building. Angry brides. Bad juju.

" In the suit, the American Safety Casualty Insurance Company claims a construction company run by Stephen Brackett -- Nancy's fiance at the time -- was hired to fix up a restaurant in 2008.  ASCIC issued an insurance policy to Brackett to cover the work ... and Nancy agreed to cover ASCIC's costs if anything went wrong.

ASCIC claims Brackett only did a portion of the work and "diverted contract funds" to the Church of Scientology, in which both he and Nancy were members.  ASCIC says that when the project was halfway done, Brackett committed suicide and his company folded."

It's amazing how she can say everything's been straight up for her, given the end of her marriage and the death of her boyfriend (he jumped off a bridge, straight down and vertical).

But I guess when you've given a cool ten mill to a cause, you have a lot of sunk cost bias to deal with.

Exactly. That's why I can't imagine Lisa Marie being a scientologist. She reminds me of the type of person you can't bullshit or listens to bullshit. She needs to accept the fact that her religion has destroyed, hurt, thousands of innocent, awesome, good people. She has the celebrity power to help those that are suffering from a corrupt organization. I wonder if she read Debbie Cook's email?

"I'm like a lion--I roar. If someone betrays me, I won't be a victim. I don't sulk, I get angry. I go immediatley into retaliation. But it always comes from insecurity or pain."--Lisa Marie Presley

We in RTC have seen this side of Lisa Marie before. We remember how her mother Priscilla use to dump her snarling and angry Lisa Marie child at CC Int with a suitcase and tell our auditors, "Fix her! I can't do anything with her." Priscilla was and is such an incompetent and terrible mother.

We in RTC see it this way: The song is a message to Priscilla from Lisa Marie. Priscilla is telling Lisa Marie to shut up and fly straight or she won't get her inheritance. This has nothing to do with Scientology and Tony Ortega once again misses the entire point. We say this as one needs to consider that we in RTC are 3P'ing this whole thing so that we get all of Priscilla's money when the old girl drops her body.

Oh man, you burst my bubble! It very well could be a song about her overbearing, controlling mother. I do remember her saying in a interview, her mother and her were complete opposites and that she often rebelled against her.
