Scientology's Agenda in the National Foundation of Women Legislators
"The goal of the department [of governmental affairs] is to bring the government and hostile philosophies or societies into a state of complete compliance with the goals of Scientology. This is done by a high level ability to control and in its absence by a low level ability to overwhelm. Introvert such agencies. Control such agencies." L. Ron Hubbard, evidence from Church of Spiritual Technology v. U.S., November 22, 1989.
What is Happening in the NFWL Now?
The "church" of Scientology has several non-legislative members on the board and in committees of the National Federation of Women Legislator's, (NFWL.) Several other women legislators have been awarded at Scientology "star-studded ceremonies," while other legislators do not realize Scientology's repetitive agenda in the legislative arena.
Dangerous medical practices and mental health attacks by the cult of Scientology (who by no means gives members degrees to practice medicine) need to be examined by competent and educated authorities, and proper steps taken to restore what will become "more than a broken healthcare system." Indeed, Scientology is a large part of the problem, wasting excessive taxpayer dollars, while at the same time selling their dangerous philosophies and practices. The use of statistics by Scientology for mental health scares and selling their lucrative programs is a serious problem, that would not fit models of the scientific mainstream medical or mental health community. It is a danger to public health.
Scientology is now using the NFWL to market their dangerous, "detoxification program" under the name, "Second Chance".
This is a prison rehabilitation program that includes a dangerous detoxification and sauna procedure with a dangerous regimen of vitamins administered by Scientologists.
The Second Chance Program, another front group for Scientology's quackery, is listed as: "licensed by the criminal rehabilitation group Criminon International, a child of Narconon International, a drug rehabilitation program of Scientology."
All of these Scientology programs use the same detoxification/purification, that Scientologists are required to buy, called The Purification Rundown. This 'detoxification' is also being sold through several Scientology programs, such as the current New York Firefighters Detoxification, and the Narconon New Life Detoxification Program.
Research on the Detoxification? - "Unfit For Human Experimentation"
Under the guise of "secular" does Scientology attempt to promote and sell a totally religious program that is based almost entirely on research from a 1985 study that was considered -
"unfit for human experimentation." Scientologists, or those trained in Scientology's so-called "technology" - not medical doctors - administer massive dosages of vitamins and dangerous lengths of time in a sauna. All of this, in order to rid the body of "toxins." Written instructions include Scientology "religious studies" for "purification and detoxification."
Removing toxins from the body through purification is a prerequisite for later Scientology study and their deceptive claims of salvation - the understanding that they will be ridding their bodies of dead space aliens, (body thetans.)
" Scientologists believe that most human problems can be traced to lingering spirits of an extraterrestrial people massacred by their ruler, Xenu, over 75 million years ago. These spirits attach themselves by "clusters" to individuals in the contemporary world, causing spiritual harm and negatively influencing the lives of their hosts ". USDJ Judge Leonie Brinkema 4 Oct 96 Memorandum Opinion, RTC vs Lerma Scientology certainly does not tell victims this fact, as they would not choose to spend massive amounts of money. This is considered a "bait and switch." Consider that Scientology is preparing our citizens in this way, as they interject their beliefs under the guise of alternative mental healthcare. The Second Chance program, or whatever name they use to sell the detoxification, is a way to "cure the world" via Scientology, under a secular ruse. Legislators need not promote this issue any further now that faith-based fraud is upon us.
Women Legislators Pitching the Dangerous Scientology Detoxification The NFWL website describes a tour that women legislators took to the Ensenada Prison in Tijuana, Mexico on November 21, 2002 - highlighting the Second Chance as a "model program that began 7 years ago." Another trip was arranged by NFWL member and Assemblywoman Sharron Angle (R-Reno) in February, 2003 to legislators in the Nevada Assembly and suggest the Second Chance Prison Program receive approval for federal funding in Nevada.
The program was rejected, due to the lack of scientific research as well as ties to Scientology. Nevada's Assembly Majority Leader Barbara Buckley, (D-LasVegas) did her research and stated that the program "is scientifically invalid and undercuts other state efforts."
She also stated, "These gimmicky programs undermine successful rehabilitative programs, such as the drug court." NFWL member Sharron Angle was arranging the trip, whereby an "anonymous donor" proposed to pay for the 35 legislators to attend.
It was later found that the anonymous donor was a Scientologist.
Buckley had reviewed the same program two years prior and it was rejected.
Joy Westrum, Scientologist and President of the Second Chance Program is a board member of the NFWL, (but is not a legislator.) Westrum's name surfaced in another attempt to sell the same prison program with detoxification in New York. The "Erie County Second Chance Program" in New York was proposed for the jail system in Erie County in October, 2003 - within eight months of the failed attempt in the Nevada Assembly. This time, the name was simply referred to as "The Second Chance Program Inc., based on technology from Scientology's Criminon through research by L Ron Hubbard."
Is it a model "Prison Program" or a Purification approved for "Home-Office" use? Same detox...Same "church"
While it appears that Westrum is not listed in her capacity or under the umbrella of the NFWL for this proposal, it references "75 legislators have viewed the model program." Being that Westrum is the President of the Second Chance program and board member of the NFWL (not a legislator,) there may have been a problem in stating or listing her affiliation, especially since the same project was rejected in the Nevada Assembly just months before. This is a clever step by Scientology in order stave off others who may discover legislative debate, collective rejection or information that documents how dangerous this program actually is. .
Note: Since discovering the request for funding for the program on the Greater Buffalo Community Foundation website, this message appears: "The file you have attempted to load could not be found."
Scientologist Joy Westrum also states on this Scientology website, that "the Second Chance is non-religious and non-medical prison based crime and rehabilitation model."
Westrum's statement of her title and affiliation with membership in the NFWL and a DEA partnership is is highly conflictual. She is not only selling a Scientology program as "secular," but using her affliations and position in these groups ambiguously:
"As the private sector co-chair for the NFWL National Policy Committee on Crime, Justice, Terrorism and Substance Abuse partnered with the DEA on the shoulder-to-shoulder initiative, I can tell you the issue of effective demand reduction is key to solving many of the most pressing issues facing our country today.The Second Chance Program offers an effective solution to demand reduction."
Although the NFWL website lists the Second Chance Program in the picture gallery, (and without other information,) the partnership with the DEA program does not advocate the use of the Second Chance Program.
In the communication magazine, L. Ron Hubbard outlined ways that Scientology could get into Government. Locate its leaders, get a paid post as a secretary or officer of the staff of the leaders of that race. And by any means, audit them into ability and handle their affairs to bring cooperation. A nation or a state runs on the ability of its department heads, its governors, or any other leaders. It is easy to get posts in such areas. Don't bother to get elected. Get a job on the secretarial staff or the bodyguard. Use any talent one has to get a place close in, go to work on the environment and make it function better. The cue in all this is don't seek the cooperation of the groups. Don't ask for permission. Just enter them and start functioning to make the group win through effectiveness and sa
