Marty Rathbun: Dog or Pony?

Ursula Caberta and Marty Rathbun

Marty Rathbun recently took part in a German dog and pony show intended to support further suppression of Scientology and Scientologists; but was he the dog or the pony?

Rathbun the dog was dutifully obedient to his new Master’s commands, spouting a list of tired old lies before a room full of carefully prepped attackers as though it was new news, and even embellished them with new claims of victimhood (that must play well in Hamburg) that he hadn’t tried before, even contradicting some of his earlier whinings.

But Rathbun the pony was happy to have his new Master ride him around in a surreal display of obedience before select small groups of attackers and local squirrels, assisted by disgraced lawyer Graeme Berry flitting around in the background trying to organize SOME spectators to watch the show.

Marty has suggested there was some altruistic purpose to his meeting with Ursula Caberta and others in Germany – and that it all a valid part of his effort to “save Scientology.”

Needless to say, once again Marty Rathbun is lying.   He is a Scientology hater and an LRH hater.   He does nothing with the purpose of helping either Scientology or LRH.

What was interesting about the Germany trip however, was the new lows that Rathbun has sunk to in his desperation to cause damage to LRH and Scientology.

Cutting through the dog and pony atmosphere that Marty Rathbun became a shameful part of, he was used simply and only to support Ursula Caberta’s ongoing efforts to eliminate Scientology in Germany completely, outlaw LRH’s writings and Tech, and consign to the ranks of the unemployed any person or organization that has ever studied LRH or taken Scientology services (a campaign called the “sect filter”, which Ursula Caberta created in 1990).

This is Marty Rathbun’s idea of being “pro-Scientology?”

You’ve heard about media being orchestrated?  Before doing a small local TV show, Marty Rathbun and Steve Hall pre-drilled the audience on how they should react to things Marty said.  For example, they were drilled to cheer and applaud when he said he was “never going back to the Church.”

Steve Hall

Steve Hall, out of view of the cameras by arrangement, then worked the audience throughout the interview, having them applaud, cheer, gasp and so on just like this was a soap opera.

Marty himself has become quite the little actor too.  We all know about the incident where Marty attempted to kill Mike Rinder by slamming his head into the ground while throttling him – that has been covered in Freedom Mag and referred to many times, including his being asked about it by journalists, radio and TV hosts.

Marty has always just excused the incident by saying that he was violent – up to now that is.

When asked by the German media, Marty, on cue put on a great act of choking up, needing to have a drink, tears welling up in his eyes, seeking comfort from Ursula Caberta and then claimed that he had been ordered to beat up his “good friend” Mike Rinder.

Do I have to point out that if Marty had been ordered to do that he would have been saying so for the last 2 years?  The allegation is so transparently ludicrous, that one has to wonder how deranged the Rathbun actually is.  (Also, I note that the “I was only following orders” defense didn’t work in Nuremburg in 1936, and it doesn’t work in Hamburg in 2011.)

The showmanship didn’t stop there.  Marty told another journalist that he “might not be able to go back to the USA because the Church of Scientology has such influence there, but that “Caberta would look after him for a few days.”  He actually had tears in his eyes.  Sob!

It is this kind of thing that shows his desperation.  If he were legitimate and had actual evidence of anything he alleges, the facts would be all he needed.  But here he is, 2 years into his battle, having accomplished nothing.  It is perhaps no wonder that he is becoming desperate.

Showmanship, or Soapmanship, aside, Marty has also resorted to other desperate measures to try and prove himself right – like hooking up with real degenerates.

Here are things Marty Rathbun wants to spin everyone’s attention away from:

Marty Rathbun is a paid mouthpiece for Ursula Caberta.   Before going to Germany Marty protested that he was not being paid and refused to admit that Caberta was funding the trip – something that was blown out the water within minutes of the start of his “press conference.”   Marty Rathbun and wife Monique “Mosey” Rathbun Banks were on an all expenses paid trip, and Marty admitted that he makes his living from attempting to destroy Scientology.

Ursula Caberta

Ursula Caberta makes her living from attacking Scientology.  Caberta is employed by the Hamburg government as a full time employee to attack Scientology.

While she claims that she is unbiased, she accepted a payment of $75,000 from a known anti-Scientologist, to attack Scientology.  This type of activity, which one usually associates with third world government officials, is actually illegal in Germany.  Caberta was fined $7,500.  If the Hamburg government were in fact impartial, she would have been imprisoned.  Perhaps they were lenient because of her alcohol and drug dependencies.

Caberta was a side-show unto herself.  Her erratic mouth movements and startling gestures, a side effect of too many years on drugs and alcohol, revealed that she was obviously a person in some mental distress.

Caberta’s lawyer-on-a-leash keeps trying to make his living from attacking Scientology. Graham Berry is a disgraced, sanctioned, heavily fined, one-man legal accident scene who has been attacking Scientology unsuccessfully.  Before that he failed again and again at making a living as a lawyer, rarely able to get work, losing money in case after case for his clients when he did find some, and narrowly distancing himself from his partner who ultimately was disbarred and sent to prison for Grand Theft of client monies.  In all, Graham Berry was assessed more than $100,000 in sanctions for his frivolous litigation.

Despite multiple court sanctions, Graham Berry filed his own frivolous lawsuit against Scientology churches and the ecclesiastical leader of the religion.  In throwing this case out, the Judge declared Berry to be a vexatious litigant forbidding him from filing any future lawsuits against the Church without court approval.  The judge said:

“With all due respect, sir, I have to sadly state that if there is such a thing in God’s green earth as a vexatious litigant you, sir, sadly, are it.”Graham Berry was subsequently suspended from the practice of law by the California Bar for his continued pattern of misconduct, including the filing of harassing and frivolous litigation, misusing client funds, and willfully disobeying orders of the court.

Instead of fulfilling his ethical responsibilities as an officer of the court, he filed bankruptcy to avoid paying his sanctions.

Graham Berry

Marty Rathbun has hooked up with Graham Berry.  Berry and Caberta picked Rathbun up from the airport and he spent many hours planning with them what the next moves should be, and how they should present their affiliation and how they can exploit Anonymous, whose Hamburg leaders were in Marty’s pocket.

Rathbun has finally dropped all pretenses and is now openly supporting a group that is under criminal investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice over Cyber Crimes, and similar agencies in other countries.

And finally . . .

. . .  in stark contrast with his desperation and degeneration, I am happy to report that Marty’s sense of humor has never been better.

Reporting from Germany Rathbun wrote the following on his blog.

“Mosey and I decided to take a train ride up to Berlin today.  Having learned quite a bit about Germany and its history recently, we wanted to see some historical sites of significance.

“We were told by our hosts that they could not provide protection since we were leaving Hamburg, a terrorist had just been caught in Berlin, and the Chancellor of Germany was scheduled to speak at Checkpoint Charlie in Berlin this afternoon – so all law enforcement was focused on those matters.  No matter . . . “

Liar, Marty and Mosey spent all day vacationing in Berlin courtesy of the German government.
