Suri Still Being Held in Germany

9/21/2007 4:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Celebubaby Suri Cruise is still being held in Germany! The Scientolotot was snapped in the arms of her grandpa, divorce lawyer Martin Holmes, accompanied by grandma Kathleen, in Berlin's Tiergarten Park. She's one of the most adorable kids on this (or any other) planet!

Suri's father hasn't been seen for days -- he's busy shooting that Hitler movie. Mother Katie must have been undergoing further brainwashing training.

Oh please, "it's all about the money," Tom and Katie do so many photo ops the kid porobably think of paps as family. Tom needs all the feel-good photo ops to try to hide the fact that he and Katie don't really have a marriage. Now Tom is trying to convince everyone that Grandma and Grandpa Holmes are the usual visitiors with Suri, and that is so untrue. The reason they look like robots is because they are surrounded (out of camera range)
with Scientology soldiers watching their every move. Katie sold her soul AND her daughter for fame and money, and she has been going theough indoctrination since before they were married. They are probably going to come back here with Katie pregnant (from some fertility clinic far away from American prying eyes) and that's all Katie is wanted for, just a baby-maker for Scientology. From this report on indoctrination methods:

"TRs and objectives are a basic requirement that anyone doing Scientology must go through, thus laying a solid foundation for further indoctrination." And this includes Katie Holmes.

Use of Mind Control in Scientology
by
Monica Pignotti, MSW, CSW
Cult Intervention Specialist
and Former Scientologist

PART I
THE BEGINNING INDOCTRINATION METHODS
The purpose of this paper is to show how mind control is used in Scientology. In order to do this, I have used the four components of mind control from Steve Hassan's Combatting Cult Mind Control: Behavior control, Emotional control, Thought control and Information control and have given examples of how Scientology uses each of these. I am assuming that the reader of this paper has read and is familiar with the concepts outlined in this book.

This is not meant to be an exhaustive study of mind control techniques in Scientology, as that could fill an entire book! This is just to give you a start in getting an understanding of how mind control is used at the very beginning levels of Scientology. If a person gets more deeply involved, for instance, and gets into auditing, joins staff and/or does advanced courses, there is much more. I will be writing papers to deal with these issues. The techniques I discuss here, however, have proved quite sufficient, unfortunately, to get many people hooked into Scientology.

COGNITIVE DISSONANCE THEORY
"If you change a person's behavior, his thoughts and feelings will change to minimize the dissonance" -- Leon Festinger. This theory is described in detail on page 59 of Combatting Cult Mind Control. In addition, Steve Hassan added a fourth component, control of information. Scientology, very definitely, controls all four.

BEHAVIOR CONTROL
The Scientology Registrar - The job of the registrar in Scientology is to use high pressure sales tactics to sign people up for courses. This is especially true for front groups, such as Sterling Management, Singer and numerous others. Once the registrar gets the person into his/her office, the person is not allowed to leave until he/she has signed up for a course and paid. If the person says, "I'd like time to think this over", this is not allowed. The staff at Sterling is told that the person should not be allowed to "think" about it because that would give his "reactive mind" a chance to take over and so they must pay immediately. I have personally talked to many people who have been held for hours in the registrars office, sometimes all night, until out of sheer exhaustion, they gave in. For further details, see Robert Geary, DDS's video or audio tape at the 1990 CAN Conference (available from CAN National) and the Sally Jessy Raphael show of July 9, 1991.

Routing Forms - Once a person has signed up for the course, he is given a sheet of paper called a routing form. The routing form ensures that there is a staff member with him every step of the way, from signing up for the course, paying for it, actually taking the course, writing a "success story" and then being sent back to the registrar to sign up for the next course. Thus, the cycle of paying for courses, taking them and signing up and paying for the next one continues, never giving the person a chance to get away and think about it. Scientology insiders refer to this process as "body routing" and call potential new converts "raw meat", indicating that a person, before Scientology is seen simply as an object to be manipulated. There is even a department in the Scientology organizational structure called the "Department of Body Routing". If a person, for any reason, does not want to continue to be "body routed" and does not want to go onto the next course or level of auditing, this is considered unacceptable and the person is pressured into signing up for a "repair" session and pressured until they agree to go on.

TR's and Objectives - These indoctrination processes are very important to know about as they are classic examples of how a change in a person's behavior can a

Hopefully Katie called her parents there to talk about how to rescue her.

I bet she's been slowly coming around to the insane situation she has gotten herself brainswashed into ... and that she is truly miserable, and wants OUT. She just doesn't know how she is going to get out of the Tom/Scientology madness, and keep custody of her daughter.

Guarentee: that sham of a marriage will be over within 2 years.

The baby is cute and totally unaware that the cameras are on her, so there getting natural photos of her in action -- I'd bet the paps are hiding in the trees. With the photo's of the Jolie-Pitts -- the paps are straight in their faces, screaming their names and yelling for them, etc -- this is why Shiloh sometimes looks like a deer caught in the headlights (confused, shocked)....

But, I'm going with Shiloh as being the more attractive of these two babies, and will be the more attractive as an adult: her features are so beautiful and delicate, with those amazing lips like her mother.

Suri is owned by Scientology, her brainwashing will begin shortly. Katie can leave Tom, but she will end up like Nicole, childless for all intents and purposes because fighting Tom and Scientology is just not feasible. And the following explains why Katie has been looking plain and mannish, just the Scientology "way," even the women are called "sir" in Scientology "land." And Scientology bloggers are in here with the same damage control posts they use in other Tom and Katie threads, that's how controlling this demonic cult is.

The faded little downtown area of Clearwater, Florida, has a beauty salon, a pizza parlor and one or two run-down bars, as well as a bunch of withered bungalows and some old storefronts that look as if they haven't seen customers in years. There are few cars and almost no pedestrians. There are, however, buses -- a fleet of gleaming white and blue ones that slowly crawl through town, stopping at regular intervals to discharge a small army of tightly organized, young, almost exclusively white men and women, all clad in uniform preppy attire: khaki, black or navy-blue trousers and crisp white, blue or yellow dress shirts. Some wear pagers on their belts; others carry briefcases. The men have short hair, and the women keep theirs pulled back or tucked under headbands that match their outfits. No one crosses against the light, and everybody calls everybody else "sir" -- even when the "sir" is a woman. They move throughout the center of Clearwater in tight clusters, from corner to corner, building to building.....

[Wow, "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" courtesy of Scientology - not really fiction after all!]]

Dana, We rarely see Shiloh smiling in pap photos because the crazy paps are following her around screaming her name to get her attention. She's only 14 months and confused at the madness. ANY 14 month old would have that look of confusion of their face ... mouth open and staring in direction of the photogs .. in photos taken in the middle of that madness.

Incidentally, there ARE photos of her smiling on Just Jared; photos taken of her at the petting zoo with AJ and on the boat with the whole Pitt-Jolie broad. The difference with these photos are she's looking at/smiling at the things that she's doing -- rather than being screamed at by the photogs.

If the photogs were chasing and screaming at Suri, or any or baby, all the photos would also look the same. No smiles ... just a look of confusion, as she's trying to figure out the whole madness of the situation (in the mind of a toddler).

Just Jared is run by Brad and Angie, as are so many other pseudo websites pretending to be legitimate blogs but really just Brand and Angie owned blogs. And the paps "follow" them because they call the paps, just like Tom does, because they are promoting a movie right now and need to haul out the kids for publicity photos. When the movie bombs, Brad and Angelina will zip out of this country and Angie will split, like she always does, to do anything but stay home with Brad and the kids. When Tom is done, they will head back to America where Katie's indoctrination and mind control classes will resume.

#36, put the crack pipe down.....no celeb blog is "run by" B&A you FREAK. However People Magazine is definitely on the Cruise payroll, it's totally obvious.
#34...EXACTLY, plus Surui has been taught by her media whore parents to WAVE at the paps, that's all she did while they were at that wedding a few months ago.

tom and katie are has-beens, the Jolie-Pitts are the hot ticket right now. When Katie was in Paris the locals barely took notice, and it looked like she had one HIRED photographer following her around. No one is interested in them anymore.....the freak factor has worn thin and everything about them is fake and everyone knows it so they're BORING

#36 --

The Jolie-Pitts 'own' Just Jared. I like that, that's a good one -- that's ridiculous.

I don't question that celebs handlers do call the paps when a good photo-op is some helpful PR. However, if you've ever happened to have been in the eye of the storm when between a pap frenzy and celeb -- you know it's absolute madness. It's simply not necessary for them to be screaming at the kids, the kids (particulary the babies) of any celeb at any time.

I'd bet AJ, and/or any celeb with kids who's hunted by the paps this much, tries to turn the madness of the experience into a game for the kids, ie: who spots a pap, much the old game on a road trip of who spots a vw bug.

As far as Brad's movie (Jesse James) bombing. ? .. I seriously doubt that, it looks/sounds like it is going to be really good. Can't wait to see it.

On the other hand, I wouldn't be suprised that the movie tom's working on will be a bomb. I, and many other people I know, won't see a movie he's in -- simply because of
'him' and his craziness .... Don't want to financially support the cult known as scientology

Agreed that when back in the states that the mind control of katie is scheduled to resume ..... though, i'd bet if she can figure out a way to get of this situation AND be able to take her daughter with her, then she will plan her escape in the near future. She looks completely miserable in photos as of late.
