Building a Narrative Out of Broken Straws – Missing Pages From Tony Ortega’s “Full Court Transcripts” in Narconon Deposition

Maybe it’s me. Maybe I can’t count. Or read.

But in the pdf file on scribd which Tony Ortega represented as “the full court transcripts”, I count way over 100 pages missing from this document – following the original court page numbering.

Here’s how Tony Ortega represented this document to his readers this morning

If this is the full court document as Tony has represented to you, where are the following pages?

Pages 3- 18
Pages 39-58
Pages 60-104
Page 118
Pages 122-141
Pages 169-184
Pages 189-190
Pages after 191 to the end.
Here’s the file I downloaded from scribd at around 10am CST on 29 November 2017.

See for yourself:


I’ve asked Tony in this tweet where these pages are.

Tony Ortega never answers questions from me. So maybe someone over at the Bunker can ask him, and maybe they’ll answer them for me.

From Fully Licensed Family Therapist Rachel Bernstein to the crazy lady who thought she recognized Shelly Miscavige in a hardware store, Tony Ortega likes to protect the “veracity” of his sources. The missing pages here all seem to go into questioning the veracity of his source for this story, as much of this deposition is missing.

What gives Tony? Are you trying to manipulate us again?

Or is there some other explanation for the holes in your narrative here?

If Tony Ortega was an objective reporter here, we would be getting the State of Oklahoma’s side of this dispute. But, along with the over 100 pages that are missing from this court document, none of that exists in Tony’s reporting.

You have to ask yourself why.

Don’t you?

Above Alanzo says, “. . . and they only address me personally . . .” Someone referred to him as Algonzo. That made me think of Godzilla. Godzilla was a badass. Maybe it was a compliment.


On the serious issue of addiction, as far as I know there are no reliable statistics on the recovery rates of various recovery programs. Twelve Step programs are usually given credit for the highest recovery rate but many people are unwilling or not ready to identify with “I’m an alcoholic” or “I’m an addict”.

It’s not uncommon for people to die while in recovery programs. Someone decides to give it one more try and goes out and overdoses. It’s up to the courts to decide if Narconon Arrowhead was directly responsible for the death or deaths which are being litigated.
