Introduction – Ground Rules – Opening Communication to OSA

Welcome to my web log as the “Watchful Navigator

The Native American “Crow” Indians of my childhood Montana Indian Reservation home, gave me the name “CHIPABOOSH” (chipmunk).


Being an intensely loyal person and raised in a very strict Christian home, I have found myself at various times in my life, caught up in a number of  interesting affiliations and relationships that can only be described as “cultic”.  The most recent being my deep involvement in the IRS-approved, legal-corporate consolidation of the fringe group led by David Miscavige in assuming totalitarian control over L. Ron Hubbard’s Church of Scientology, where I served as a staff member for more than 15 years.

Extricating myself from these groups has been a lesson in recovering my own personal sense of humanity and responsibility, through rehabilitating especially, the qualities of honesty and compassion.  It has been a lifetime of intense personal growth.

Watchful Navigator” – was a name I carefully chose in early 2010, soon after learning about the corruption of David Miscavige through the video testimony of some of the the highest-toned, highest-ranking guys in management (Mike Rinder, Marty Rathbun, and Steve Hall) who were once my “leaders” and “role models” (though I knew little of their activities – just their appearances at events, and in Steve’s case, only the awesome and inspiring campaign slogans that expressed the unrealized potential of the empowering and helpful subject of Scientology).

The name “Watchful Navigator” was chosen out of admiration for the work of “The Pilot” (Freezoner – Ken Ogger) – one of the first to articulate and broadly disseminate common sense reforms to remedy David Miscavige’s disastrous impact on the church.  I remain an avid student of the work of L. Ron Hubbard and a successful and knowledgeable practitioner of “Standard Tech”, having left the church May 1, 2012 as a very thoroughly trained and experienced, Class 0 Auditor.

In fact, I love Scientology counseling (“auditing”) so much that I “made it go right” to train as an auditor, and to also audit dozens of fellow staff and public, in the middle of handling one of the most intense posts (besides the Executive Director post) available to a Class V Org staff member.

I’ve never met a case I couldn’t or wouldn’t “audit” (counsel, or help).  (My very first project as the new DSA CCDallas was to covertly coffeeshop-audit picketer David Alexander – not a bad guy, but a problem for our Public Relations – away from the premises for good!)


Scott Gordon

Scott Gordon – assuming the DSA CCDallas post in 1999

As the Office of Special Affairs (OSA) of the Church of Scientology International finally figured out on or about 28 January 2012, the true identity of the “Watchful Navigator” is in fact myself, Scott Gordon, 16-year veteran staffmember and DSA (Director of Special Affairs for OSA) Costa Rica 2004-2009; DSA CCDallas 1999-2004; PSS (Public Servicing Secretary) and Basic Courses Supervisor, Children’s Courses Supervisor, and Chaplain 1995-1999; PES (Public Executive Secretary) 1995; HDF Dir (Hubbard Dianetics Foundation Director) and Introductory Services Auditor 1994; Construction I/C 1993 CCDallas.

GOAL: To contribute my spiritual strength, knowledge and power to seeing the demise of the evil tyranny that has taken hold of the official organization that presents a limited and altered version of Scientology, which is ordinarily an effective subject of HELP (but by now taken far off its original course of providing honest help to the peoples of Earth) and to help restore the subject of free Scientology as once envisioned in its formative years by founder and researcher, L. Ron Hubbard.

“The work was free.  Keep it so.” – L. Ron Hubbard

PURPOSE: To present an understandable picture of my experiences on staff at 2 Scientology organizations; to help audit out (skillfully indicate truth until the lies blow) the group engram (trauma) that was leveled against my friends and associates with whom I served, whose dedication to the subject was used against them in betrayal; to identify correct source(s) of our failures to accomplish the mission of delivering the HELP we arrived to give and receive.





(A case can easily be made in a court of law, that local Scientologists in the Dallas area were fraudulently led to believe that their donations and work were to be used to further the original purpose for Scientology as envisioned by its founder L. Ron Hubbard.)




I am honest, and I try my best to deal in truth, and to subject myself to it.

I am inspired by the Underground Railroad of Harriet Tubman.  A Christian woman to her friends, a clever adversary to her oppressors.  My maternal family comes from a line of Christians in Ohio, who operated a way-stop for the Underground Railroad, now surviving as the “Africa Wesleyan Church” near my Grandparents’ farm in Westerville, Ohio.

Hiding my identity was a 2-year+ “covert operation” (as routinely practiced by OSA) to rescue my friends unaware of the abuses and gross betrayal of trust led by David Miscavige and a corrupt group of government-connected lawyers, and executed by greedy, corrupted associates – all “protected” from the rest of us Scientologists, by enforcing fear (terror, at times) through a carefully compartmented branch of the organization know as “OSA Security.”  This operation continues, and people have been freed from the trap.

So Hello Kirsten Caetano, Beth McKinley, Linda Peters, Pam Bowen, Kathy True!

All of you were at one point, social personalities – of this I have no doubt.  I have personally experienced the goodness of each of you as beings.

I love you all.

I had the time of my life working with you, though let’s say that I was “missing some data.”  (No, I am not being “1.1”)

I may not always be the “life of the party,” but I am (still) a “social” personality.   I will communicate to anyone about anything.

Your hard work and dedication was always inspiring to me and I “went the extra mile” for you many a time, as I am sure you did for me.

But we may have some surprises in store.

My pledge to my friends still in OSA:  I’m going to tell “all” – with discretion and common sense.  I am not here to damage anyone’s reputation undeservedly.  Send me direct communication on anything you feel I have gotten wrong and I will go back and forth on it with you until I am sure I have it “right”.  This goes for anyone else I feel compelled to mention by name (this should be rare).

(If you are “lurking” and posting under an assumed identity – that’s totally okay – post away – and let me know when you’re out!)

Additional pledge (includes all my friends on staff):  If you choose to leave (“blow”) from the organization, I will help you to the best of my ability, until you are fully recovered back to health, sanity – and fully independent.  I specialize in recovery counseling and I will audit you all you need – (only of course, if you want) – “for free” until you are back on your feet.


By the way, the “covert operation” my friends and I are engaged in, code-named “UNDERGROUND RAILROAD” has been wildly successful.  You will be seeing the products coming out of that over the next year.   Dallas is coming back into its own.  Delivery of services has been in progress for quite a while, now.  Our friends are joining us as they discover that Scientology is alive and well outside the “church.”

And I’m going to settle a mystery for you right off – NO, I was not in comm or in any form of “coordination” with Marty or Mike throughout my involvement in the church after learning that David Miscavige was a criminal.  I did have a personal chat with Steve Hall at one point, but it was strictly a social introduction.

All other “confessions” are there in your pc and file folders – the “Sec Checks” (Security-clearance Checks) I passed with flying colors and free needles (because I really was clean and told all) – and – this applies to anyone else curious about my positions and communications – you can find me posting as “Watchful Navigator” on Marty’s blog, Steve Hall’s blog, and Plain Old Thetan’s articles.  (I’ll be re-posting some of my best as we go along.)

(As a “misdirector” to my true identity, I did pretend to be a female in one posting, but all other posted data stands)

Most importantly, the fact remains that I could not have done all of this without my friends – you know who you are!


I did not lie to the media in any of my articles, interviews or appearances.

I –am– however, going to speak freely of things that I know were and are, “crimes” – or at the very least, violations of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

I participated in crimes while I was DSA of the corporate Scientology organization run by David Miscavige.  In particular, incidents reported to the church of adult sex with minors (teenagers, -not- children) went unreported, for the most part (I did report one incident to authorities and a report was filed).

I AM A REFORMER – I am not here to jeopardize religious freedom or human rights.

My hands are clean.  My “emergency SP declare” of 01 May 2012, is a joke and full of falsehoods, which were accepted without any confronting of me the accused, with my accusers.  I have never done anything harmful to the church or even any person in the church (with minor exceptions that I have fully apologized for).  I am only “guilty” of blowing the whistle on David Miscavige’s criminal mafia empire that he has been making out of our “church”.

Even as the DSA of a corrupt organization, I managed to refuse or evade destructive orders.  During the rocket-crash of the church 2004-2012 I served in a pioneer area, completely unaware of the disasters consuming the Scientology world until the release of the Basics in 2007 pulled ALL of church management off post (you know what LRH would say about that, so shame on you and I for finding justifications to explain that one away, OSA staff and those who are still “in”).

Okay, I have participated in some of church management’s questionable activities, and stood by observing abuses for too long, and on this I –will– be coming clean.  That is one of the purposes of this new blog.

I am a Christian and a Scientologist, both.  If you are also, please note that I will be posting on this topic in an upcoming blog: ScientologistChristian.wordpress.com


And a marriage is not a thing to be tampered with.

My wife was one of the most ethical persons I have ever met.  But she dutifully “disconnected” from me, to preserve her son’s “Bridge” – their “eternities” – and her own dreams of “OT”.

My Princess

Just Married, December 27, 2003 – CCDallas

Another enforced divorce.  Our marriage was in fine condition as of February 2012 when I visited her in Costa Rica.

There is only one thing now that can happen for her to have any chance of making it this lifetime, to where she needs and wants to be, spiritually.

David Miscavige must go.

The church must reform and first and foremost, must cease to break up families and cease and desist in suppressing the future of our people which requires appropriate, pro-survival procreation (the family being the building block of civilization).

International law

After the Holocaust, Lemkin successfully campaigned for the universal acceptance of international laws defining and forbidding genocide. In 1946, the first session of the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution that “affirmed” that genocide was a crime under international law, but did not provide a legal definition of the crime. In 1948, the UN General Assembly adopted the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide which legally defined the crime of genocide for the first time.[12]

The CPPCG was adopted by the UN General Assembly on 9 December 1948 and came into effect on 12 January 1951 (Resolution 260 (III)). It contains an internationally-recognized definition of genocide which was incorporated into the national criminal legislation of many countries, and was also adopted by the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, the treaty that established the International Criminal Court (ICC). The Convention (in article 2) defines genocide:

…any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:

(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group.

Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, Article II

This is yet another Human Rights violation.
