Leah Remini’s Most Shocking Scientology Claims

Leah Remini is releasing a book that will give readers an insight into what it was like to be involved in Scientology. She recently appeared on 20/20 to help promote her book, and let’s just say some of the claims that she made were more than just shocking! Leah Remini explained that she was first introduced to the religion of Scientology by her mother, while of course Leah was still a small child. Her mother had signed her up for a strict sect of the Church that was called the Sea Org. They forced a young Leah to sign a contract with them for….get this…. a billion years. Yup the Sea Org and the Church of Scientology believe in reincarnation… which isn’t an absurd thought…. but making a child sign a way a billion years of their life…. might be a bit overboard! Seriously maybe they should wait until the children they force to sign the contracts are actually old enough to understand them!

Katie Holmes Had Leah Sent Away for Reprogramming!

One of the weirdest and most shocking stories that Leah Remini revealed was about how she was sent away from reprogramming because Katie Holmes had written a complaint against her! Leah Remini explains that the Church of Scientology forced her to invite Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony to Tom Cruise’s wedding, Katie and Tom however had no idea about this. During the extravagant day long event, the Church of Scientology forced Lopez and Anthony to spend most of the wedding apart. Leah believes that the church was seeking Lopez as its newest member and possible female face of the church. Katie Holmes following the wedding would file a complaint against Leah with the Church for her “inappropriate behavior.” Which is a bit odd considering she didn’t really do anything wrong but just what the Church asked her to do. Maybe Katie was upset that the church wanted Lopez to be its new female face instead of her? Anyway because of Katie’s complaints Leah was sent away to get reprogrammed! Yes you read that right, she was sent away to get reprogrammed! Since this special aired Katie (who is no longer with the church) has publicly apologized to Leah for her actions that day.

Leah Remini was Forced into Hard Labor as a Child by the Church

If having to pay membership for a church isn’t bad enough, as a child Remini revealed that she was forced into labor at a very young age. Her time with the so called Sea Org was less than glamorous to say the least! She alleges that she was forced to live in “roach-infested” dorm type rooms with the other children of the Sea Org. When it came to chores, it was more like forced labor. One day she would be working in the laundry room and the next she was working with industrial sanders, to say that the Scientology religion exploits children for labor, would be an understatement! Seriously don’t we have child labor laws for reasons like this, no child should be working with industrial sanders….ever!

The Scarlet Letter

Have you ever read the Scarlet letter, or seen the movie Easy A? Than you know the main character was forced to wear the letter A on her as punishment for her adultery….or at least that’s what I learned from the movie Easy A so I hope i’m right! Anyway Leah Remini claims that the punishments at the Sea Org was very similar to that, she believes that she was punished way to harshly for minor offenses. Some of the issues that she claimed got her into embarrassing trouble was touching her boyfriend…while his clothes were still very much on! The Sea Org’s punishment is an attempt to reform you, she was forced to wear all black and call everyone around her Sir. She was the black clothed version of the scarlet letter, and she claims that while this is torturous punishment for an adult…. well just imagine what it feels like as a child!

Scientology Helped her Become a Better Actress!

Leah may not have made a lot of good claims about the church of Scientology but she did reveal that Scientology helped her with her confidence. While she unfortunately was kicked out of the Sea Org for her immoral ways, she continued to be a part of the Church of Scientology. She revealed that her time with Scientology helped her master certain tools that they provided her that ultimately helped her to further her career. She explained that while most people would have been nervous in front of a casting director, she never was thanks to the tools and lessons she learned from Scientology.

Scientology Controls Your Medical Decisions

Let’s be real here our ancestors didn’t fight for women’s rights just to have them taken away from them by the church they are involved with! According to Leah, the church of Scientology controls what medical decisions you are allowed to make! When she was set to give birth she was told that she was not allowed to have an epidural as it was against the religions beliefs. However after feeling the pain of a baby ripping down your vagina, she instantly decided to go against her church and get an epidural. Im sure Leah was forced to wear black for months following this!

Tom Cruise is Like Jesus, and You Are Our Bitch

I guess when you have one of the most successful actors of all time in your church, you sort of make him your own personal Jesus. According to Leah anyone who disrespected Tom Cruise, or talked to him in a way that he did not like would be instantly written up. Scientology may be the only religion in the world where someone can write you up, imaging going into confessional one day and what you tell the priest….is spread to every priest in the Catholic Church! Apparently jokes are never allowed in Scientology, Remini revealed that she was written up for making a small jab at Tom Cruise. They were at a salsa class together and she made a joke about how it looked like he was forcing himself to kiss his wife….. this of course led to Remini being written up!

State-Sanctioned Murder: North Korea Killed Otto Warmbier

State-Sanctioned Murder: North Korea Killed Otto Warmbier

The Kim regime likely released the American student so he wouldn’t die on North Korean soil. Now they need to pay for killing an American—and be convinced they can’t kill more.

North Korea killed Otto Warmbier, and that must affect U.S. policy toward both the Kim regime and its enablers, most notably China.

The 22-year-old American student, who arrived in Cincinnati on a medevac flight June 13 after being held captive in North Korea since January 2016, died Monday afternoon. He had been in a coma for 15 months.

The North Koreans claimed they released Warmbier on “humanitarian grounds.” That, like most everything they have said on the matter, was deceptive. They let him go, in all probability, because they did not want him to die on North Korean soil.

It’s unlikely their last-minute maneuver will make much difference, however. The student’s death, so soon after his release, is bound to affect American policy toward the Kim regime, just as the beheading of James Foley by ISIS in August 2014 affected the Obama administration’s Middle East policy.

At the moment, President Trump’s attempts to disarm North Korea seem to be in abeyance, as the White House waits for Beijing to help. Whatever one thinks of that approach, Warmbier’s death will add pressure on the president to act now.

Trump immediately issued a statement expressing condolences to the Warmbier family and condemning North Korea’s brutality.

 

Those sentiments, however, are not enough. Unless the American people are willing to accept tragedies like this on a regular basis, costs need to be imposed on the Kim regime.

American diplomats had been trying for months to obtain Warmbier’s release and that of three other American citizens held by Pyongyang.

The student had been prevented from leaving the North in early January 2016 after attempting to take down a propaganda poster. For the prank, he was charged with “hostile acts” and given a sentence of 15 years hard labor. His show trial took place the following March.

Pyongyang says he fell into a coma after taking a sleeping pill soon after. The North’s officials also said Warmbier had contracted botulism.

Doctors at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center found no traces of botulism but did find dead brain tissue. They described his condition as “unresponsive wakefulness.”

In all probability, the coma was the result of severe trauma that prevented blood flow to the brain.

In any event, North Korean officials had tried to hide Warmbier’s condition until June 6, when Pyongyang’s U.N. ambassador disclosed the coma to Joseph Yun, the State Department’s special envoy for North Korea. Yun then secured Warmbier’s release after traveling to the North.

The consequences for the Kim regime now have to be far in excess of turning the State Department’s travel advisory into a travel ban, as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson suggested Wednesday in testimony to the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The costs have to be so severe that no regime, North Korean or otherwise, will think of harming Americans.

Washington, of course, tries to obtain the release of detained Americans, and to do so it always seeks to avoid offending regimes like North Korea’s. That usually works to free a particular individual, but the process creates incentives for future seizures of Americans. Kim Jong Un and Kim Jong Il, his predecessor and father, apparently thought taking Americans resulted in an endless stream of bargaining chips.

At some point—like now—Washington must switch its approach from rescuing individual Americans to preventing seizures in the first place.

What can be done? North Korea should once more take its place on the State Department’s list of state sponsors of terrorism. No bank, including Chinese ones, involved in North Korea’s various criminal activities should be allowed access to its dollar accounts in New York. The U.S. should seize all dollar accounts of enterprises proliferating ballistic missile or nuclear weapons tech, equipment, or components to the North. The U.S., using authority flowing from Pyongyang’s various renunciations of the Korean War armistice, should interdict and then inspect all North Korean shipping for weapons or contraband.

Kim Jong Un continues in power because regime elements believe they are safer with him than on their own. The United States, which says it is not seeking regime change, needs to convince them they have no future if they support any regime killing Americans.

Washington, for decades, has always worried about the consequences of action on North Korea and therefore has done little. While it has done little, the Kim family has, among other things, counterfeit American currency, built nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles, and cyberattacked American businesses and institutions. And now it has felt secure enough to kill an American.

North Koreans thought it was safe to brutalize Otto Warmbier. Now is the time to make sure they never harm another American again.

Pence Hires Private Lawyer for Russia Investigation

Pence Hires Private Lawyer for Russia Investigation

 

Vice President Mike Pence has hired a private lawyer to represent him in the special counsel’s investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, the vice president’s office confirmed Thursday.

Pence has retained Richard Cullen of the law firm McGuireWoods to “assist him in responding to inquiries by the special counsel,” according to a statement from Pence’s communications director, Jarrod Agen.

“The Vice President is focused entirely on his duties and promoting the President agenda and looks forward to a swift conclusion of this matter,” Agen said.

On Friday, when asked by reporters, Pence said the hiring of a private attorney was “very routine. Very routine.”

A source close to Pence said he had been interviewing lawyers for weeks to represent him. The source added that the vice president will not be spending taxpayer dollars to pay for his legal advice and representation.

Cullen’s hiring was first reported by the Washington Post.

Cullen is a seasoned federal criminal attorney with experience relevant to the assignment — he has handled politically sensitive casework as special counsel to former Sen. Paul Trible (R-VA) during the Iran-Contra investigation, he is a former U.S. Attorney, and he served on the House staff for Rep. Caldwell Butler (R-VA) during the Watergate investigation.

Cullen referred all requests for comment to Pence’s office.

President Donald Trump has already retained his private attorney, Marc Kasowitz, to represent him in the probe being conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into the Trump campaign’s alleged ties to Russians.

NBC News has confirmed that Trump is facing a criminal investigation for possible obstruction of justice in the FBI investigation.

Trump has denied that and on Thursday he attacked the probe on twitter as a “WITCH HUNT” and said the charges of collusion between his campaign and Moscow as well as obstruction of justice were “phony.”

Trump’s Personal Lawyer Was Just Slapped With Multiple Bar Complaints

Trump’s Personal Lawyer Was Just Slapped With Multiple Bar Complaints

Donald Trump’s personal lawyer Mark Kasowitz just got hit with a pair of serious ethics complaints (embedded below) by lawyers in his home state of New York and in Washington, D.C. where he is practicing law today.

Kasowitz has become famous for issuing a typo-filled, but factless defense of Donald Trump as news emerged that President Trump himself is under investigation by Special Prosecutor Mueller.

However, he isn’t a member of the DC bar and seems to be advising government officials on Trump’s White House staff, who themselves could become witnesses or defendants in a future criminal prosecution of the President. The New York Law Journal reports:

Campaign for Accountability, a nonprofit government watchdog group formed in 2015, filed its ethics complaint with the Washington, D.C., Office of Disciplinary Counsel, Board on Professional Responsibility on Thursday.

Separately, Neal Goldfarb, senior attorney and litigator at corporate law firm Butzel Long, lodged a complaint Tuesday with the Appellate Division, First Department, disciplinary committee in New York.

The more serious of the two complaints is with the DC bar since Trump’s lawyer isn’t a member, but is still practicing in the White House anyways. Lawyers can practice outside of their home states by filing what’s called an application for

Lawyers can sometimes practice outside of their home states by filing what’s called an application for pro hac vice admission, which lets them practice under the supervision of a member of the local bar.

But they have to make an application and declare this to the local Bar, and Kasowitz has not released any such documents publicly. The Campaign for Accountability explains that issue, and why Kasowitz’s advice to White House officials not to hire counsel yet, likely violated ethics rules:

District of Columbia Professional Rule of Conduct 5.5(a) provides “a lawyer shall not practice law in a jurisdiction where doing so violates the regulation of the legal profession in that jurisdiction.”  Rule 4.3 prohibits lawyers from offering any unrepresented party who has a potential conflict of interest with the lawyer’s own client with any advice other than that they retain counsel.

Mr. Kasowitz does not appear to be a member of the District of Columbia Bar.  As a result, by meeting with White House staff within the White House complex and offering the legal opinion that those staffers need not hire counsel, he may have engaged in the unauthorized practice of law.  In addition, by advising White House staff members, who are not represented by counsel and who have a reasonable possibility of having interests that conflict with those of  Mr. Kasowitz’s client, President Trump, Mr. Kasowitz appears to have violated Rule 4.3.

The New York complaint follows a similar legal reasoning about failing to encourage people to get their own lawyers if they’re concerned about criminal charges related to their employment under Donald Trump. It adds a separate allegation that Kasowitz improperly communicated with people in the White House are represented by other lawyers.

 Attorney Neil Goldfarb’s complaint includes a separate allegation that Kasowitz improperly communicated with people in the White House are represented by other lawyers, violating another New York bar rule.
 
Now, he’s brought a civil litigation lawyer from New York to DC that CNN calls a “fish out of water” to fight a massive FBI criminal investigation without a license.
