Travolta and Warner Brothers Insult World’s Movie Critics over "Battlefield Earth?"
No new movie has ever received such widespread pre-release bad press as the new John Travolta film, "Battlefield Earth," distributed by Warner Brothers and premiering May 12, 2000. Although critics predict the movie will be a box office disaster, a dreadful film and will produce a flurry of lawsuits, it is not those issues, which are causing the really bad press. Nor is it the fact that Tom Cruise a former Scientology celebrity and former Scientology promoter has personally warned Warner Brothers against distributing the film. It is the manner in which John Travolta and Warner Brothers continue to insult the intelligence and integrity of movie critics around the world by their steadfast refusal to answer and disclose the due diligence they used to verify or refute the credible "Battlefield Earth" allegations below:
1. That the notorious cult of Scientology has placed fourth generation subliminal messages in the "BattleField Earth" film master to surreptitiously attempt to recruit new members from the movie audience and to influence the audience to develop an aversion toward mental health organizations and practices. (Crude first generation subliminal messaging was developed approximately 40 years ago. Like other technologies over this period, subliminal messaging has also improved. Some believe to have already arrived at nearly undetectable levels.)
2. That Scientology has been the secret and PRIMARY source of financing for the film and has been directly involved in "BattleField Earth" movie production, final script approval and movie production security.
3. That Scientology has and will continue to enact large scale recruiting schemes connected to the films’ release and content. And, that these recruiting schemes are deliberately targeted at unsuspecting children and young adults. (For all the details behind the above allegations, visit http://www.factnet.org/halt.htm and then go to http://www.factnet.org. For more breaking news from other media covering these allegations, see http://www.factnet.org/othermedia.htm ) Six weeks after these allegations were first disclosed, Warner Brothers has still failed to publicly respond in a sincere and forthright manner nor have they addressed the seriousness of the allegations in relation to public safety. In spite of widespread general knowledge that Scientology has been convicted of infiltrating dozens of U.S. government agencies, of committing numerous felonies internationally and, that Scientology operates within itself a vicious intelligence agency that rivals in budget and scope those of many world governments, Warner continues to glibly avoid dealing with the allegations.
Is it a contempt for movie critics, movie patrons and theater owners that motivates Warner’s silence or are Warner’s top executives somehow allied in collusion with the dark agenda of this bizarre cult? Does Warner and Travolta believe they can simply ignore movie critics demands for pre-release screenings and independent review of the movie master without it having a major impact on the films release? If Warner was sincerely interested in resolving these allegations, why haven’t they put the allegations to rest by publicly disclosing their due diligence investigation of the allegations?
The non-profit organization F.A.C.T.Net asks U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno and the congressmen and women of the U.S. house and senate to intervene. The allegation of subjecting tens of millions of U.S. movie audiences to fourth generation subliminal messaging is serious. It has provoked a growing dialog on what could happen if fourth generation subliminal messaging techniques developed in the psychological warfare departments of the world’s leading intelligence agencies are allowed to migrate into private industry as both eastern and western intelligence staffers seek to capitalize on "previous expertise" in the growing global " hidden influence" market place.
Many questions have also surfaced concerning the lack of any government screening to even detect the use of state-of-the-art subliminal messaging. It has not gone unnoticed that there is also a lack of preventative screening for subliminal messaging within the Motion Picture Association of America and the American Advertising associations.
So far neither the Motion Picture Association nor the movie theater owners associations have stepped forward to guarantee "Battlefield Earth" movie audiences that they are safe from fourth generation subliminal messaging alleged to be in this film. Heated debates have also erupted about what would happen to a free society if organizations from the current political parties to extremist groups like the Ku Klux Klan or Neo-Nazi "churches" started using these coercive influence advances to successfully sell their agendas without ever having to engage the viewer’s conscious consent
. Because of the before mentioned, F.A.C.T.Net is formally asking U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno and the congressmen and women of the U.S. house and senate to intervene. If the allegations of fourth generation subliminal messaging in "Battlefield Earth" are established as fact, this would be the first known instance in Western society outside controlled testing in the psychological warfare sections of the government that these techniques are being used on the general public. To protect the general public from the harm such unethical influence technology could do, F.A.C.T.Net is asking the U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno (and separately the congressmen and women of the U.S. house and senate) to immediately acquire the mastering copy of "BattleField Earth" and have it screened by the top psychological warfare section within the U.S. intelligence community BEFORE the May 12, 2000 public premiere of the film.
Updates on the Current Situation:
a. From reports we are now receiving, John Travolta and Scientology are desperate to salvage the "BattleField Earth" movie disaster. Travolta is on an all out 21-day promotional tour and Scientology is mobilizing its members and regional resources to crowd Travolta’s "BattleField Earth" related appearances to help repair the "it is only a science fiction movie" illusion. Scientology executives are also privately concerned Travolta could crack (as he allegedly has in the past) under the growing media confrontation and pressure for meaningful direct answers to the allegations. They have allegedly surrounded him with loyal cult insulators, observers and protectors to screen these questions away or cut off media who try to push Travolta on these issues.
b. With Scientology’s alleged 100 million dollar investment in the movie and related recruiting/marketing promotions about to be lost as well as other Scientology celebrities emboldened by Tom Cruise’s and Nicole Kidman’s courageous recent defection rumored soon to exiting, Scientology’s erratic leader David Miscavige, is said to be ballistic. He is allegedly vowing that to save Scientology and its decimated membership the movie will succeed, vowing that "BattleField Earth" series will prove to be bigger than the Star Wars series and secretly vowing that anyone, in or out of Hollywood, who gets in the way of the movie’s success will taste the full retribution of Scientology.
c. F.A.C.T.Net is continuing to appeal to the individuals who so courageously first revealed these allegations, to come out publicly with all their evidence. F.A.C.T.Net is in the process of trying to arrange security and other assistance to combat the probable Scientology retaliation if or when they do.
Has Travolta’s betrayed his fans, peers and craft for his cult?
John Travolta has every right to promote his cult’s occult anti-Christian, anti-mental health ideology and this right is protected by the U.S. constitution. However, John Travolta does not have the right to use subliminal messaging to promote his cult’s recruiting agenda or its anti-mental health positions. He also does not have the right to covertly attempt to influence his movie audience’s ideas by publicly promoting "BattleField Earth" as entertainment and pure science fiction when he knows that from its very inception the film it was always intended to be a cleverly veiled new Scientology recruiting and propaganda weapon.
If the before mentioned "BattleField Earth" allegations prove true, it would be a betrayal of trust to his fans, his fellow actors, the motion picture industry and his craft on the level never seen before even in Hollywood. If true, it shows a lack of respect for the free will and intelligence of his audience bordering on megalomania.
The questions remain. Is John Travolta playing his worst role by brazenly continuing to lie to movie critics, theater owners, the media, and trusting fans about "Battlefield Earth’s" hidden agenda and Scientology's dominating role in the film?" And, is he following his cult's well-exposed "fair game" policy that lying is always justified if it forwards Scientology’s secret agendas?
Subliminal advertising became illegal over 30 years ago. If the allegations concerning use of subliminal messaging in this film are true, immediate government intervention is required to protect the public from serious harm. Wilson Bryan Key, Ph.D., author of the Age of Manipulation (Henry Holt, 1989), was asked about the feasibility of using an undetectable advances in subliminal messaging. He provided the following insight: "It is very difficult, if not impossible, to protect yourself from subliminal manipulation. If any movie is produced with a hidden ideological agenda, the effects could be devastating."
At F.A.C.T.Net, we are deeply concerned. If proven true, the allegations of subliminal messaging embedded in "Battlefield Earth," designed to recruit children and young adults into an extremist would not simply mean movie-goers were defrauded of $7 and conned into viewing a Scientology recruiting and propaganda film disguised as science fiction. It could mean serious long-term psychological harm and eventual physical harm (where individuals were successfully recruited into the cult) to millions of unsuspecting, vulnerable children and young adults not to mention the loss and pain for their families, friends and employers.
Warner Brothers has utterly failed its moral and legal obligation to answer credible allegations or make disclosure of its due diligence investigation of the allegations. Warner Brothers has failed to assure moviegoers and parents that, while watching "Battlefield Earth," they and their children are safe and do not have to fend off the surreptitious recruiting schemes of the menacing cult of Scientology. The U.S. government and governments wherever this film is shown must now intervene.
