We are going to cover a lot of ground tonight.

First up are Colin Henderson and David Love,  returning guests to AxXiom For Liberty.  Colin and David are two untiring activists seeking to expose the deceptive and dangerous practices of Narconon and Scientology.

Colin Henderson sought help for his addiction at Narconon Arrowhead, a drug rehabilitation facility located in Canadian Oklahoma, in 2007.  He quickly became a critic of Narconon for their practices which he says are both deceptive and dangerous.

David Love, originally from British Columbia, was both a client and a staffer at the Narconon rehabilitation facility in Trois-Rivieres, half way between Montreal and Quebec City. He left in disgust taking with him masses of documentation on fraud and abuse in Narconon (NN) Trois-Rivieres (TR) facility in 2009. On April 17, 2012, Quebec health officials ordered the Narconon in Trois-Rivières to close saying that Narconon’s methods were dangerous for patients and violated Quebec’s health and safety criteria governing rehabilitation centers.

Colin and David will get us up to speed on the latest news regarding Narconon and help shed light on some of Scientology’s more insidious practices such as the one Howard Houchen encountered recently.

Narconon is a Scientology based drug rehabilitation program with facilities located worldwide including the state of Oklahoma.  Scientology has many fronts but all roads seem to lead gaining more recruits and money to fill the coffers of the church of Scientology.  Even so, you would not expect to find a trace of Scientology in a public school in the sleepy little town of Hugo Oklahoma.  Howard knows better.  He is going to explain how Narconon came to his child’s school and what he did about it.

Brandon Dutcher, OCPA

We will also get to hear Howard’s interview with Brandon Dutcher, the Vice President of Policy at OCPA (Oklahoma Council of Public Affairs) an Oklahoma individual liberty, free market policy research organization.  Howard and Brandon discuss the 91 million tax-payer dollars recently bestowed upon Oklahoma’s education system.  Brandon says that it is sheer folly to keep giving more money to this ‘failed government monopoly.’

Take a look at the numbers in Brandon Dutcher’s article for OCPA on the issue;  Oklahoma’s monopoly education system gets more money

Amanda Teegarden, Exec. Dir. OK-SAFE

We are also very pleased to welcome back Amanda Teegarden, the Executive Director of OK-SAFE, Inc. (Oklahomans for Sovereignty and Free Enterprise).

They say nothing happens by accident in politics and I am beginning to believe that this is true.   In the legislative process at least, I’m ready to vouch for it.  Amanda is going to shed some light on the process by examining two recent pieces of legislation that caused some confusion and controversy.   I think you will find this peek behind the curtain very interesting.

I will be sure to add any relevant links and articles after the show.

Narconon Arrowhead Update

Colin Henderson and David Love give us an update on the actions being taken by state officials and families stemming from the recent deaths of students seeking drug rehabilitation at the Narconon Arrowhead facility located in Canadian Oklahoma.

Colin Henderson sought help for his addiction at Narconon Arrowhead, a drug rehabilitation facility located in Canadian Oklahoma, in 2007.  He quickly became a critic of Narconon for their practices which he says are both deceptive and dangerous.

David Love, originally from British Columbia, was both a client and a staffer at the Narconon rehabilitation facility in Trois-Rivieres, half way between Montreal and Quebec City. He left in disgust taking with him masses of documentation on fraud and abuse in Narconon (NN) Trois-Rivieres (TR) facility in 2009. On April 17, 2012, Quebec health officials ordered the Narconon in Trois-Rivières to close saying that Narconon’s methods were dangerous for patients and violated Quebec’s health and safety criteria governing rehabilitation centers.

Next, we will speak to Dan Feidt, indy journalist and activist about a couple of very interesting items.

DRE officer: “I don’t know what the big deal is I just gave them marijuana”

This spring, Dan was instrumental in breaking the story about police officers apparently giving drugs to protesters in Minneapolis, MN.   He shot much of the video first detailing this unbelievable situation.  Dan is going to give us an update on the outcome of that investigation and also fill us in on the Minnesota Dept. of Transportation GPS-based vehicle tracking system that is intended to introduce a vehicle tax which would entail a great deal of data constantly collected by the government on the whereabouts and everyday patterns of the taxed vehicles.

AxXiom For Liberty Radio Dec 10, 2010 Show Notes

 


Howard mentioned a story about Red Light Cameras and short yellows. Here is the referenced article:

Critics call for longer yellow lights at monitored intersections

Rep. Christopher Hurst, D-Enumclaw, claims yellow lights at camera intersections are too short.

“The cities say they’re all at 3.5 seconds right now,” said Hurst, who believes that time is too short for drivers to cross the intersection. He’s working on legislation to make 4-second yellow lights — the state standard at red-light camera intersections. Read More

My good friend, Chad Dornsife whom I mentioned on tonight’s show represents Best Highway Safety Practices Institute

See his presentation: Camera Enforcement Vs Best Engineering Practices

-Find out how to measure the timing of yellow lights here

As always, Chad cuts straight to the chase by revealing the basis for best engineering practices;

We have the knowledge; all we need to do is apply it. Since the 1930’s, it’s been known that large numbers of violators are more often than not caused by engineering problems, rather than an out-of- control motoring public. “What we know” in 1989 FHWA paper referencing a 1930’s finding;

“In general, motorists’ noncompliance is indicative of a problem. The problem   may be due to some failing on the part of the traffic engineers or the lack of understanding of the driver, but seldom is the problem a wanton disregard of the law by the motoring public.”

The Narconon Story

As Recorded In The Pages of the Newkirk Herald Journal

1989

“Trained Scientologists to staff huge Oklahoma facility,” reads a headline in the February 1989 issue of “The Auditor,” a copy of which was made available to “The Oklahoman.” Narconon, the article states, gets Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard’s “technology applied broadly in the society

•In the early 1990s, Narconon opened a large treatment center near Newkirk, Oklahoma, resulting in a series of critical articles in a local newspaper.[16] The Oklahoma Department of Health demanded that Narconon be licensed with the state,[17] but the Board of Mental Health refused approval, stating “No scientifically well-controlled independent, long-term outcome studies were found that directly and clearly establish the effectiveness of the Narconon program for the treatment of chemical dependency and the more credible evidence establishes Narconon’s program is not effective”
•… The Board concludes that the program offered by Narconon-Chilocco is not medically safe.”[18] Even the New York Times wrote a story detailing how the town’s initial euphoria at the prospect of a drug treatment center has been replaced by distrust, frustration, and fear. Townspeople said that Narconon was not honest about its affiliation with the Church of Scientology, its financing, its medical credentials, and its plans for the project. A Narconon spokesman quoted for the story said that all the appearances of deception reported by the townspeople, such as the group that praised Narconon at a public ceremony and presented it with a check for $200,000 and turned out to itself be part of Narconon, were due to “false information being fed in there by somebody who’s in favor of drug abuse … They’re either connected to selling drugs or they’re using drugs.”[19]
•Narconon’s Scientologist attorney Tim Bowles filed a series of lawsuits against Oklahoma institutions and officials and eventually obtained accreditation through the Arizona-based Commission on Accreditation and Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF) in 1992;
•Oklahoma officials then agreed to exempt Narconon from the state licensing requirement and the facility was allowed to operate.
Tribal members sat the “state” and the “governors” office involved in bringing Naconon to Chilocco-1989

Narconon-Chilocco Drug Treatment Plant
May Be Part Of Notorious Religious Cult

Newkirk Herald Journal April 27, 1989

Tribal members contacted about the Chilocco project were not aware of a possible connection to the Church of Scientology. All they’ve been told is that it is a “private corporation .” Pawnee office of the Bureau of Indian Affairs said they were not aware of the connection, and were very “surprised” because the “state” and the “governor’s office” were involved in getting Narconon to come to Chilocco.. . .(emphasis mine)

NARCONON Chilocco, 1989 – 1993 summary
Written by Tilman Hausherr

Talks about the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitative Facilities (CARF) Legal troubles that have plagued Narconon.

Caveat-I have no knowledge of the author of the above summary and cannot vouch for the veracity of all that is documented there.  Please do your own research.

We mentioned concerns about state government and Narconon.  From the Ponca City News-here is the reference:

Sheriff Marion Van Hoesen lashed out this week against Senate Bill 721 after both of Kay County’s state senators (Paule Muegge, D-Tonkawa and J. Berry Harrison, D-Fairfax) joined in its sweeping approval last Monday. The bill is now being considered in the House, where it died last year on the last day of the legislative session.

Van Hoesen harshly criticizes the Oklahoma Community Corrections Act as a cleverly developed “power play” by the state department of corrections to dump its financial problems onto the individual counties.

And worse, it can’t solve the overcrowding problem either, he said.

The act, recommended by the proponents of truth-in-sentencing programs for the state, would introduce local community-action boards to provide alternate sentencing recommendations for local offenders. But it obviously overlooks the CSSP, which is already successful in several counties.

“You have to read between the lines to understand the bill,” Van Hoesen said. “It’s not what it says, it’s what it doesn’t say.”

What it doesn’t say is how a county board of volunteers will pay for medical expenses and court-ordered programs such as mental health, Alcoholics Anonymous and Narconon, which are currently funded by the DOC. (Emphasis mine)

On August 5th and 6th, 2004, over 100 people from both the faith-based community and drug rehabilitation field, including 20 churches and 25 drug rehab groups from 21 different cities and towns, gathered at the lovely new Reed Conference Center in Oklahoma City for a two-day conference on substance abuse. The conference was co-hosted by SAMHSA (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) and Narconon International, along with Oklahoma’s Narconon Arrowhead drug rehabilitation and training center.

I encourage all who want to know more to listen to the Wed Dec. 8th broadcast of the Free Mind Report for a good overview and some excellent advice from Stacy Lynn who is fighting the ICLEI battle in Colorado.

One recommendation that Stacy Lynn made was that Edmond residents take a close look at the city budget.
