HOW SCIENTOLOGY COERCED A CHILD TO HAVE AN ABORTION: THE LAURA DECRESCENZO FILES

—————- In anticipation of her biggest day in court yet, Laura DeCrescenzo and her attorneys hit the Church of Scientology with 928 pages of new filings —————- Details from 18,000 pages of evidence show how Scientology manipulated a child to keep her working under slave-like conditions —————- A key document describing DeCrescenzo’s unwillingness to have her coerced abortion is missing from the evidence Scientology was ordered to produce By Tony Ortega Wednesday afternoon, Laura DeCrescenzo filed explosive new information in her four-year legal odyssey against the Church of Scientology, submitting 928 pages of new declarations and exhibits in anticipation of a crucial October 23 hearing in her lawsuit against the church which alleges abuse, including allegations that she was forced to have an abortion at only 17 years of age. Key to the new filings is information gleaned from thousands of pages of previously secret files that the church fought mightily to keep under wraps. But on Monday, the U.

EXCLUSIVE: First Interview with the Principal of Will & Jada Smith’s Shuttered Scientology School

Jacqueline_OlivierIn 2007, Jacqueline Olivier was hired by Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith to turn their home-schooling experiment into an actual bricks-and-mortar institution. A year later, the New Village Leadership Academy opened its doors as protesters showed up to picket the school — by then, it was known that the Smiths had asked Olivier to use L. Ron Hubbard’s “Study Technology” as the school’s guiding curriculum. (Study Technology is also a significant part of coursework in the Church of Scientology, which Hubbard founded.)

But Olivier assured the public that the private school in Calabasas, California was strictly secular, and she played down the influence of Study Tech. Then, a year later, she was fired and replaced by a woman named Franca Campopiano, also known as Piano Foster. At the time, news reports suggested that Olivier had not embraced the use of Hubbard’s ideas strongly enough, which is why Campopiano, a Smith family friend, was brought in to replace her.

Now, for the first time, Olivier is talking about her two years working with the Smiths. She’s no longer playing down the influence of Study Technology. In fact, she tells the Underground Bunker that Scientology’s influence in the school was near total, and she knew that calling it secular was a sham. Her departure, she says, was definitely about her not being “with the program.”

This summer, we broke the news that the New Village Leadership Academy had shut down after operating for five years. The Smiths had put $1,235,000 into the school to get it going and finance its first three years. After that the school had tried to stay open through tuition revenue and fundraisers, but then it closed on June 28.

Olivier, 51, is now working as the principal of New Roads School, a private elementary in Los Angeles. After the Smiths let her go, she worked out a settlement with them, and has now decided to make her story known. She says she’s well into a project to write a book about her experiences, but she agreed to talk to the Underground Bunker for a preview of what that story will contain.

Olivier began her teaching career in the LA Unified School District, and after several years as a bilingual teacher in the city’s big public system, she left it for a private school. Eventually, she was the head of a school in La Jolla, California, when a recruiter started talking to her about a unique opportunity. The Smiths were starting up their own elementary school.

“I had always wanted to found a school,” she says, and so she went and interviewed with the Smiths in their home in Calabasas. “They had a home school. They presented it as an opportunity to found a school. They were going to spend a lot of money. It was going to be secular, and it would use best educational practices.”

Olivier says she was also told that the school would make use of a curriculum called “Study Technology” by L. Ron Hubbard, the founder of Scientology. But the Smiths stressed that the study materials were secular and not affiliated with the church.

Olivier had been an educator for nearly 20 years. She had degrees from UCLA, Cal State Northridge, and Pepperdine University. And yet, as a EdD in education, she’d never heard of “Study Tech” and knew of no credible school that used it.

“They offered me a lot of money. I took the job, thinking they were actors and didn’t know what best practices were. I thought Study Tech would be easy to work around,” she says.

Former Scientology official Claire Headley has helped us understand the three basic concepts of Study Technology in our series, “Up the Bridge.” We can quickly summarize them. Hubbard believed that students had problems primarily because they skipped over words they didn’t fully understand. So at the heart of Study Tech is the “misunderstood word” or MU, which is solved by meticulously looking up chains of words in dictionaries, called “word clearing.” Second, Hubbard felt that students missed concepts because they were too abstract. He solved this by requiring a lot of modeling in clay and other materials. And third, Hubbard said learning had to happen on a gradient, meaning that advanced concepts can’t be understood until many intermediate steps are introduced first.

In our discussions with Claire, it became obvious that although these ideas appear somewhat like common sense, Scientology takes them to extremes, so that students spend huge amounts of time looking up small words like “an” or “the,” and hours go into making clay models of simple ideas.

For outsiders, Olivier says she quickly learned how to describe Study Tech in a way that made it sound harmless. “You could say, you just use the dictionary a lot, you use hands-on learning, and you don’t move up too fast. That’s what you tell people,” she says. At first, that’s how she figured it would be used at the school.

But after accepting the job from the Smiths, she learned more about the home-schooling operation they already had going at a house in Hidden Hills, California.

“I started finding out that everyone was a Scientologist, and what they were really up to,” she says.

At the Hidden Hills house, about ten children were being taught by ten parents. A one to one ratio? “Yes, it was one to one. And the house was just for the schooling. They weren’t living there,” Olivier says.

“All of them were Scientologists. They were doing ‘qual’ and ‘debugging’,” she says, using some Scientology jargon. “They were doing word clearing. There was ethics. All the teachers went over to the Hollywood Celebrity Centre every day for other courses.”

Besides the two children of the Smiths, Jaden and Willow, the others were the children of Smith family members or family workers. Most of them took Scientology courses.

And what about the Smiths themselves? We told Olivier that our own discussions with people who know the Smiths well led us to believe that Jada is an ardent Scientologist who has a serious fascination with the church’s “e-meter,” but that Will was more of a dabbler.

“If he isn’t one now, at least at that time he was, or seriously considering it. He was so into Study Technology,” Olivier says.

Will Smith was interested enough in Scientology, she says, that it concerned one of his closest advisers. As the 2007-2008 school year continued, Olivier says she was busy branding the new school and working out a lease for a building. In June 2008, Will Smith’s movie Hancock was opening, and Olivier says she was present when one of Smith’s partners talked to him about promoting the film.

“His business partner, James Lassiter, was telling him, ‘Don’t let Scientology get in the way of this movie. Don’t let the school and Scientology get in the way of the bottom line.’ I’m paraphrasing, but that’s the point of what he said,” Olivier says.

Tax records show that the Smiths made a payment of $1,235,000 from a family trust in order to finance the school. An unconfirmed press report claimed that about $900,000 of that went to pay for the three-year lease of a former high school in Calabasas. The New Village Leadership Academy opened its doors in the fall of 2008.

To prepare for it, Olivier hired a handful of non-Scientology teachers to go along with the ten Scientology teachers who had been running the home-schooling operation.

But before the non-Scientology teachers could go near the children, they had to get Scientology training, Olivier says. “You couldn’t interact with the kids until you’d taken a bunch of Scientology courses. And they were still supervised by the Scientology teachers to make sure they didn’t make any mistakes using Study Technology,” she says.

“They even wanted the parents to take Scientology courses. And they had a course room right on campus. With L. Ron Hubbard posters on the walls,” she adds. “The kids were taught all that stuff. That if you yawned, it meant you’d had a misunderstood word.”

What about the Smith children, Jaden and Willow?

“They only interacted with the Scientology teachers. They were in qual all the time.”

So they did more than just Study Tech? They were learning to become actual Scientologists?

“Oh, definitely. They were learning all the lingo. They had courses at the house.”

So Scientology, and not just Study Tech, constituted a heavy presence at the New Village Leadership Academy?

“It was the basis for the whole school. That was the overarching reason for it,” she says. “Will Smith would even say, ‘It has to be 100 percent in’,” she says, indicating Smith’s order that Scientology processes should be followed to the letter.

“I had this whole lineup of Scientology courses that I was required to take, and several of them were at the Celebrity Centre,” Olivier says. “They told me I had to be the expert on Study Tech, but what that really meant was that I had to keep taking Scientology course after Scientology course. It gets deeper and deeper, and at some point you wonder, what am I doing here?”

As the 2008-2009 school year progressed, Olivier increasingly chafed under the heavy Scientology presence at the school.

“It could have been a great school. But they were so vigilant about the Scientology aspect of it. In a fourth grade class, they were reading a first-grade text because they were so worried about the kids running into a misunderstood word. If a couple of kids got into a scuffle at recess, that also had to be the result of a misunderstood word,” she says. “It was so dull. The teachers were so bogged down following these rules, but that’s what Will and Jada wanted.”

In November 2008, Olivier went to the Smiths and said that things weren’t working. But they asked her to stick to the program.

In January 2009, however, the Smiths brought in Piano Foster to be the “director of curriculum.” Foster was married to the Smith family trainer, and she began pushing for a stricter reliance on Study Tech, only exacerbating the situation, Olivier claimed in arbitration documents that she made available to the Underground Bunker.

“In February, I told them I couldn’t do this,” she says. “The parents were complaining that it turned out to be Scientology. A lot of them left. I kept telling them no, it’s secular. But then I’d walk by a room and see kids doing clay demos and I felt sick. Eventually, my professional integrity wouldn’t allow me to stay there anymore.”

The Smiths let her go on June 23, 2009.

“After I got fired and there were lawsuits by other teachers and parents, I think they toned it down a little,” she says. But all but one of the non-Scientologist teachers she brought in, Olivier says, were let go after her own departure.

On Friday, we sent a detailed note about Olivier’s interview to Meredith Wasson at 42 West, who represents Will Smith. We’ll let you know if we receive any reply.

    BUT DOES LEAH MOVE ON

    • MaxSpaceman

      Only if people vote vote vote vote vote !!!
      Every couple beats Leah except Bill. So, have to beat Bill’s voters.

      • IBBy

        is someone eliminated tonight or no? its close to 10 eastern time

        • SandiCorrena

          It’s coming up after commercial

          • IBBy

            *fingers crossed*

        • MaxSpaceman

          yes

      • Aslansown

        Bill seems to have a lot of fans, so I’m crossing my fingers and my toes.

        • MaxSpaceman

          That is the HUGE problemo. Bill has MASSIVE fan base voting.
          ONLY HOPE is to vote vote vote vote vote.

      • Sibs

        Except our votes this week only count for next week. So whoever’s leaving has already been decided for this week.

        • Aslansown

          But don’t the judge’s scores count too?

          • Sibs

            The judges have already scored, haven’t they? Just waiting for the announcement now.

          • ThetaBara

            Judges scores are 50%. Viewer votes are 50% but are delayed by a week due to the fact that it isn’t really live anywhere except the east coast. So it’s last week’s votes plus this week’s scores.
            And, if you haven’t heard yet, Leah goes. They made her daughter cry. I hope they’re happy. As others have pointed out, Bill is not a good dancer. But votes are 50%.

            • Aslansown

              Yes, I was watching. So sorry to see her go. It seemed like they were really playing up the “touching back stories” of everybody except her (probably b/c she can’t really say what happened to her) so I kind of felt like she might go.

        • MaxSpaceman

          Wrong. This semi-final is tonight.

          • Sibs

            Okay, tonight’s score is based on tonight’s judges’ points and last week’s viewers’ votes.

            • MaxSpaceman

              I think that’s the way it woiks.
              I don’t know, though. It seems they vote someone off TONIGHT!

  • DodoTheLaser

    ThetaBara just found Leah’s Tango:

  • Jimmy Threetimes

    So I don’t know if anyone mentioned this before, but a new DirecTV’s has a familiar tag line:

    “The squirrels just aren’t listening to Dave.”

    http://www.marketmenot.com/directv-squirrel-attack-commercial/

    • IBBy

      if I lived near clearwater, I would order this shirt in every color and wear it as i stroll around near downtown *refresh*

    • Illinoisian

      The copy almost makes you wonder if it was written by someone who’s up on current struggles in the world of Co$. Hmmm . . . It reads:

      – A man, Dave, is standing in the park while a mob of squirrels that have
      now surrounded him are inching closer and closer. Dave begs them back
      off “Shoo. Go away.” But, the squirrels keep coming. The narrator says
      “The squirrels just aren’t listening to Dave. No, they don’t seem to
      care what he says.” The squirrels then start to attack Dave, jumping on
      him one by one. –

      • Jimmy Threetimes

        It is curious isn’t it? It could have been a Bill or a Steve or whatever, but they went with Dave. I love it.

        • Illinoisian

          I know DM would NEVER go to a shrink, but I can picture him lying on the couch saying, “Doctor, I keep having this nightmare. In it, a man, Dave, is standing in the park while a mob of squirrels that have now surrounded him are inching closer and closer . . .”

      • Free Minds, Free Hearts

        wow !

    • Qbird

      pretty freakin’ perfect Jimmy3Xs. wow.

    • DodoTheLaser

      That’s funny!!

    • Miss Tia

      SQUIRRELS!, makes me think of my favorite movie of ALL TIME–The ‘burbs when Ricky Butler says “It was a foaming squirrel.”

  • Aslansown

    Leah’s gone.

    • Sibs

      I had a feeling in my gut that it would be tonight. =/ After the judges’ scores…

      She did really well to come this far though. She should be proud!

      • MaxSpaceman

        But Bill got lousy scores! How did he beat out Leah ?!?

        • Aslansown

          His fans. I think he’s so likeable that he has a lot of people voting for him.

        • SandiCorrena

          He has a phenomenal fan base! Oddly I didn’t even know who he was until someone here told me.

          • Aslansown

            I didn’t either!

          • MaxSpaceman

            I *still don’t kow*. What is his claim to fame?

            • ThetaBara

              He’s the Jimmy Buffet of comedy.

          • MaxSpaceman

            Who the frig is he? What does he do?

            • Eclipse-girl

              He is a comedian, He was with Larry the Cable Guy, Jeff Foxworth on the Blue collar comedy tour. He even did a sit com for 1 season.

            • MaxSpaceman

              Geesh. A minor celeb. And he beats out Leah.
              There is no justice.

            • Miss Tia

              well isn’t that jack osborne still on too?

            • ThetaBara

              Jack is a far better dancer. He and Leah are similar in that respect.
              Dance-wise, Bill is stiff, with poor timing and very little technique, despite how hard he seems to be working every week. Jack and Leah both really improved a lot, whereas he is still a funny guy who can’t really dance. Emma’s choreo has been brilliant as far as working with him, but he is almost always the lowest scorer. He must have a large and enthusiastic fanbase behind him.

            • Miss Tia

              well i was asking from a point of ‘he’s really not an actor’ point of view…..he’s famous due to who his parents are…..but from what i’ve read, DWTS doesn’t always seem to put on ‘starts’ in the true sense of the word…..

        • Sibs

          Bill has clearly been getting a shitton of votes to stay in this long with such terrible scores. So for Leah all it would take is one more night of mediocre judges’ scores compared to everyone else.

          • MaxSpaceman

            He is LOUSY compared to Leah.
            It’s not fair.

            • Sibs

              Yeah, the reaction on the EW board was that Bill should not have gone on to the finals.

              (I should add that I am not watching this live because I am on the west coast)

            • MaxSpaceman

              I know you in LA. You were watching the Trojans get over the Cardinals by the skin of their teeth. And *not* getting to the theatre on time. But I saw you pic. You made it there and had a blast

            • Sibs

              Damn right the Trojans beat the Cardinal! :D

              …….. That’s totally not the point. Anyway, I can’t comment on anything else comparing tonight’s performances to each other (aside from Leah’s) so all I can base my reaction on is your score updates and the judges’ reactions.

            • MaxSpaceman

              You’ll see later. She completely was way better than Bill.
              I CAN’T BELIEVE of all the competitors, he outlasted Leah.
              He CAN’T DANCE. !!!

            • ThetaBara

              Quite so, but to be fair, people have said this about him every week. He is a good character actor and he clearly has a huge fanbase. I was expecting him to go soon, but obviously his fans are doing all they can to keep him on.
              Now, if he wins, I will be right there with you!
              I think I might just keep following this, although I don’t know who to root for. Maybe Amber.

    • MaxSpaceman

      I’m watching it live. Leah is *not* gone.
      Whatchoo sayin’ ?!?
      EDIT: on my bathroom break- LEAH is GONE. Oh my. Sorry. :-(

    • MaxSpaceman

      Really? I take a bathroom break and Leah’s gone !

      • Aslansown

        It’s YOUR fault! hee hee

        • marti

          max, did your spacesuit have a leak? /:}

          • MaxSpaceman

            L out fucking L !!!

    • Just Dee1

      I think they said she will be on GMA & the View tomorrow

      • sugarplumfairy

        Wonder if co$ fan Barbara Walters will interview her..

        • SandiCorrena

          I hope not!

        • Just Dee1

          My guess is she won’t even be there -

          • Miss Tia

            Yeah, TC is on the phone with her right now telling NOT to be there and if she is, she better be rude to her! We know CO$ controls Babs’ mouth when it comes to some things!

            • Hobson’sChoice

              Do you think that Barbara W is exhibiting signs of dementia? I’ve got some experience with family members regarding that and to my untrained eye… I think she might.

            • Miss Tia

              I think she is exhibiting signs of lack of journalistic integrity and starry eyed ass kissing. I think with her years and years of reporting under her belt she’s let everything go to her head now. She’s trying to hold on in anyway possible, instead of just retire with some dignity (which she’s totally lost).

              I would hope if she had any medical problems there are people around here who would help her get appropriate help and support.

        • marti

          It would be graet if BW and Leah are on The View together.

  • SandiCorrena

    Ohhhhh noooooo!

  • Elen

    Boooooo

  • aegerprimo

    Leah did not make it to next week. BUT she did get so much out of doing DWTS.

    • SandiCorrena

      Her little girl is crying!

  • Aslansown

    Awww… her daughter is crying.

  • DodoTheLaser

    Well, like I posted earlier:

    “I know this is it. This could be the end of the line for me..” ~ Leah

    And even if it is – you did great Leah, we love you! Thank you very much!!!

    What a great ride it was!

    • Miss Tia

      I tweeted this: You ARE a winner!!! So many are proud of you & support you!! @LeahRemini you’re going on to bigger successes!! ♥ ROAR w/ Confidence!

      • DodoTheLaser

        ^^^ AWESOME! Thank you Miss Tia!

        Double awesome! Thanks!

      • Free Minds, Free Hearts

        I love your tweets Miss Tia!

    • aegerprimo

      I’m sure she will make a round of talk-show interviews talking about how she loved her experience with DWTS. Keep your eyes peeled!

      • Miss Tia

        Don’t they usually appear on ‘the view’?? Will Babs be absent if she does appear there??

        • ThetaBara

          Good question! Hopefully someone will post the clip tomorrow.

    • Jimmy Threetimes

      Bummer that she’s done, but I suspect she’ll be on to bigger things than DWTS anyways.

      • DodoTheLaser

        My thoughts exactly!

        • Casabeca

          She’s ok, but what will we do on Monday nights?

          • DodoTheLaser

            It sure will never be the same, Casabeca!
            But something tells me we will be just fine!

            :) ;)

            • Casabeca

              OK brother Dodo, you are in charge of entertainment for next Monday.
              :). ;)

    • TXCowgirl

      Leah is a shoe-in if they do another DWTS All Stars season.

    • edge

      We love you Leah! You found your own voice, didn’t take shit for an answers, showed concern for another human being, and made David Miscavige and Tommy Davis look like the ass-clowns they are.

  • Aslansown

    I hope someone can remember and share what Tony said about her. It was really great.

  • marti

    She’ll be back.

    • DodoTheLaser

      So which one is it?
      Is Leah safe?!

      • Sibs

        No, Leah’s gone.

        • DodoTheLaser

          Ok.

          • aquaclara

            Hi, Dodo! You were the ace at nailing row 1 yesterday. No one else could do this. So, I thought I would ask you if anyone in row 2 looked familiar? Might be a long-shot….but take a look. Tks!

            • DodoTheLaser

              Thanks Aqua! No one in the second row looks familiar. Sun glasses don’t help either.

            • aquaclara

              Ok, so we might assume these are not the same level of huge whales or celebs like row 1. That’s telling, too.

            • DodoTheLaser

              Definitely not. One name – Robert Duggan. The biggest contributor in scientology ever.

            • aquaclara

              Thank you!

            • DodoTheLaser

        Oh well.. She did great!

      • marti

        “Is Leah safe?!’
        No. She was voted off the show.

        But, yes Dodo, she is safe.

        • Aslansown

          Perfect!

        • L. Wrong Hubturd

          Great way to say it!

        • IBBy

          I want to upvote this so many times

        • Free Minds, Free Hearts

          yes she is safe!!!

  • DodoTheLaser

    Hopefully next destination for Leah is Texas!

    • Hobson’sChoice

      Dodo, I’m under the serious delusion (and wishful thinking) that if Leah and I ever lived down the street from one another we would be great friends! I can imagine us sharing recipes, lemonade and gossip under the big tree in my front yard! (Sigh!) So, YES… let’s hope her next destination is Texas. I’m here in the Houston area, so it would be a short drive to New Braunfels for me! :-) I’ll tell her hello for you if you would like! :-)

        me too-Houston! I’d love to go there too…but if I don’t get a job soon (nothing like being restructured out of your 10 year career) I’ll be living in my car but gosh I’d love to be at that next hearing in New Braunfels!

        • Hobson’sChoice

          Good luck on the job hunt! Stay strong and don’t forget to negotiate vacation when you do get a job offer. After 10 years… you probably won’t get the same vacation seniority you had! So, negotiate, negotiate, negotiate. You’ll need it for the big Bunker Party when “The War is Over!” (Oops…. did I just quote the devil, himself! I just crossed myself.)

        • aquaclara

          Good luck, Sandi!

    good evening, fellow bunkerites. i am not suggesting anything at all so please refrain from the nasty comments. i seek just a confirmation of a simple observation in the picture of the staff of the school. is jada pinkett smith holding the right hand of jacqueline olivier with her left hand? or am i seeing things? either way, cheers!

    • noseinabk

      Nope. Both have hand on railing.

      • deathtoallpoliticians

        thank you very much, noseinank. not sure what i was seeing. thank you once again. cheers!

    • EnthralledObserver

      I’m pretty sure she just has her hand on the rail near Jacquie’s hand.

      • deathtoallpoliticians

        thank you very much, eo. yeah, i missed that. time for a new prescription, methinks. not that it mattered anyway. anyhoo, thank you again. cheers!

    • Elen

      To my bi-focalled eyes, it appears that Mrs. Smith has her hand up in a loose fist & Ms. Olivier is leaning on the railing.

      • deathtoallpoliticians

        good evening, elen. it must be time for bi-focals for me! yes, i totally missed the rail. not that it mattered anyway. anyhoo, thank you for your post. cheers!

        • Elen

          Mrs. Smith might have her hand resting on Olivier’s arm… hard to tell…

    coming late to the game and apologies if this has been posted before but 1600 posts is a bit too much to go through right now…. anyway I checked my alerts and the first two on this tory from other sites no longer seem to be posted…. TMZ, which goes to it’s generic Will Smith page and Gossip cop which seems to have removed the link completely. Obviously there’s a lot of lulzy lawyering going on behind the scenes

    • Sibs

    To Tony & Leah,
    You are stars in our eyes. You stunned us, quite happily, with your teamwork, heart and energy. You made it through every challenge and numerous efforts by others to unseat you. And you shone through it all.

    Leah, you deserve the sparkliest tiara, the glitteriest shoes and the frothiest frock to kick up your heels after all you have been through. Tony, the true Prince of the show, you have won our hearts for your talent and chivalry.

    It has been a terrific ride….congratulations on your success. We have enjoyed every minute of it! Mondays will never be the same!
    From your friends at the Bunker

    • Hobson’sChoice

      Ditto! Amen! You said it sister! I couldn’t agree more! (and so on)

      • aquaclara

        PS I hope Leah enjoyed the helicopter adventures as much as we did yesterday!

    • wordworld

      you all adore this actress because she joined your little team – it is amazing how easy it is to control people – just agree with them and you have them eating out of the palm of your hand and licking your heels, don’t agree with them and you can make them crucify you easy peazey

      jesus played the lot of them and made them do his will – he snapped his fingers and they all got down to the business of martyr creating …man you guys are blind to your jack in the box slavery

      • Great White Clam

        Well, heelllooo there!
        Glad you could make it.

      • Sibs

        So uh… Since I don’t see anybody licking Leah’s feet… You’re comparing the Bunker to Christianity? (more specifically Catholicism, they’re the ones who have martyrs) And what does this have to do with Aquaclara’s note?

        • wordworld

          I am not insulting nor taking anything away from her work as an actress just amused at the slavish jack in the box behaviour and adoration in your “LEGION”

          • Hobson’sChoice

          • Missionary Kid

            So, why are you here?

            • wordworld

              to say just what I said

            • Missionary Kid

              Gee, thank you for your wisdom. At least we don’t disconnect from friends and family we disagree with.

            • wordworld

              I have no issue with you “diconnecting” from myself if you and your LEGION need or want to do that.

            • Sarah James

              No, we have no intention of disconnecting from you.

            • Great White Clam

              I agree. If we disconnected, you might go somewhere where you had an effect!

            • Sarah James

              So much truth in your statement :))

            • Free Minds, Free Hearts

              disconnection is evil, i would never do it. Not talking to someone I don’t agree with? Insane.

            • wordworld

              if you say so, I have disconnected from dozens of people in my lifetime – no regrets

            • Missionary Kid

              Have you disconnected from them because of their beliefs? Are you a Scientologist?

            • wordworld

              Scientology is a farse. I disconnect from people who act like assholes and are unwilling to stop acting like assholes

            • Missionary Kid

              I think you are a Scientologist. You spell like one.

            • wordworld

              And what YOU think, is important why again?

            • Missionary Kid

              Why, if the tech is so powerful, are we still here?

            • wordworld

              Because you choose to be.

            • Missionary Kid

              So, in other words, the tech doesn’t work.

            • Sarah James

              Forget the tech ( David Miscavige has), if you are a scion you’ve been told to spread the hate. That’s no way to live your life even if you believe you live for billion years. The road to peace is freedom and people out here are waiting to help.

            • Missionary Kid

              Even if I were your sibling, child or parent? That’s how $cientologists do it.

He’s a fraud and proved today he has NO ability to confront. His TR’s went out so fast………….his “Grand Opening” was cut down to 8 MINUTES.

      • Missionary Kid

        • wordworld

          I do, is it possible for a human being not to project? what is the alternative? This whole “LEGION” is not just one massive projection? Ok, if you say so.

          • Missionary Kid

            I meant in the psychological sense. Of course, that term comes from psychs, so it must be invalid, huh?

            • wordworld

              not at all, quite the opposite, i validate the term and suggested that projection is all that there is

              David Miscavige is a wimp and has people locked up in what is known as “The Hole” out in HEMET California, for the record. http://www.xenutv.com for Interviews.

  • skippress

    Hilarious. Jaden and Willow were “in qual” all the time? You know what that means? The weren’t “getting” the “tech” and had to be constantly corrected. In short, the Smith kids were the dummies at the school their parents paid for. At least they didn’t put them in ethics for whipping their hair in class. What’s equally classic is how Will’s career has hit the Elwrong banana the longer he and his dummy wife have been involved with the cult.

      I have to admit that I empathise with him on the first tweet. My resting face is apparently one of epic bitchface and I can rarely smile on cue for a photo (think Chandler on that episode of Friends!!)

          • Tory Christman

            Correctomundo, DodoTheLaser! “The 3 goals of OSA Int re the Net are:
            1) Distract off of any and all *hot* topics (a/t to do w/ Hubbard, DM, “The church” or front groups)
            2) Degrade any activists they do not want listened to (this does include
            “Divide and Conquer”
            3) Slime an area SO badly that *no one* wants to even put their name there”
            The above, 1,2,3 was told to me by Bill Yaude who helped run the Net Volunteer
            “Top Secret OSA Int Internet Mafia”…right before I escaped out, forever. Thank you,
            Bill!

            • DodoTheLaser

              Thanks, Tory! ^^^ THIS needs to be broadly publicized!

            • Tory Christman

              You are most welcome! I have publicized it for 13 years now.
              Yes, I agree…it still needs to be said more often so people GET
              what their routine is. The BEST way to “handle” OSA Ops:
              Say Nothing. Yaude told me that: “ALL I NEED IS *AN* answer…
              ANY answer”. Once he was using his 10 different identities to “play”

              with the critics. Someone would post “L Ron Hubbard was a jerk”
              So he’d start in: “I don’t think that’s true. Bill2: Oh how would you know!
              Bill 3: Know is the basis of Scientology–that’s how. Bill 4: Oh for goodness
              sakes, I study Buddhism and that’s really knowledge. Bill 5: Really? What’s Buddhism?
              Bill 6: Oh–you don’t know? Bill 7: Shut up moron. Bill 8: Don’t talk like that to people.

              Finally a “real” Critic jumps on: I love Buddhism..it really works.

              Bill to me: BINGO! Jumps up, lights a cigarette: “Let’s go!”
              Me: “HUH? Bingo what?
              Bill: “Ahhh—-don’t worry about it. They finally bit. They’ll be fighting amongst
              each other for hours, if not days. Let’s go eat”.
              TRUE STORY.

            • Jimmy Threetimes

              If that scenario took place here, tho, Bills 1, 3 and 7 would be called out. Doesn’t a modern Bill have to keep stoking the fire by responding with those socks?

            • Tory Christman

              Jimmy…this is THE point most people do not get. I wouldn’t either, except I WATCHED it happen, and *I* opened up the phony accounts they used to post (Before I found out what they were *really* used for (Stopping free speech) vs their BS: “We’re handling the Critics”.

              OSA Ops Create let’s say 3 ops that are antagonistic (and often ex’s and critics will see these nicks as “Obviously OSA”, but they also have 3 that are buttering up to people both with humor, witty comments, tech, etc. And 4 that do other postings that are just strange.
              Are they still? DUH. I can only guess…but knowing their routine, I’d say “FOR SURE”. As long as we’re here…………..they’re here, too. “Watch where the feet go” (Old Chinese saying) or on the Net: “Watch where the keys go”. If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck………it’s a DUCK!

            • Jimmy Threetimes

              I have no doubt what you’ve said is true, and I know you were there to witness it. My guess is, here at least, it’s more monitoring than using socks to start flame wars. Although there are plenty of socks and people posting under new accounts after an old one or two fell out of favor. Usually trolls here are alone and everyone jumps all over them, and it sure seems like a distraction or a diversionary tactic.

              that were obvious OSA trolls, and people would “Jump all over them”. But…what of
              the other 7 or 6? No–it isn’t flame wars any more, and I’m sure they know that. This was one of THE reasons Bill was so ‘successful’ at what he did: he knows how to observe a situation, see what’s needed and wanted, and “fit in”. The difference is: HIS SUCCESS HAS BROUGHT ABOUT THE ULTIMATE FAILURE TO $CIENTOLOGY. Do you know all of these people? Hell no. So “Jeremy” and “Samsung” and “#1First” are ALL 3 Yaude…plus 7 more. So if they post here long enough, people “know them”…especially IF they’re nice, funny, clever—all which Yaude is great at. And all he can use to just post “Stuff” to keep the distraction up. This topic was on STUDY TECH….and how the Head of WILL SMITH’S School is speaking out. How many posts here are about that topic? Not that ALL have to be…..and sure, other things come up, so it’s a dance. All I’m saying is….stay on track. Post about Scientology’s abuses, at least every hour or so. That way you cannot lose. :) Does that make sense?

            • Tory Christman

              PS: WTF would I know about Yaude and what he’s up to? You think he’d talk with me? He disconnected from me back in 2000 when I told him “Bill—you could pay me 1 MILLION dollars and I will NOT pick up those cans” (He said they’d help me and “Fix” all the shit I’d been telling them about, for 7 years). Also, I said: GET OFF OUR LAWN. The end.

            • Douglas D. Douglas

              You betcha.

              An odd thing about this place– different from anywhere else I have ever posted– is that so many people are going so far out of their way to conceal their true identity. Even me. SO I don’t spend a lot of time worrying over whether someone is a sock puppet, troll, or OSA operative. I do note when the whole board is going off the tracks, and try and not contribute when it is headed that way.

            • DodoTheLaser

              “Bill to me: BINGO! Jumps up, lights a cigarette: “Let’s go!”
              Me: “HUH? Bingo what?
              Bill: “Ahhh—-don’t worry about it. They finally bit. They’ll be fighting amongst
              each other for hours, if not days. Let’s go eat”.
              TRUE STORY.”

              Whoa! This is worse than I thought.
              Well, not really, but it’s nice to have a solid confirmation.

            • Tory Christman

              It’s always great to hear s/one got it!
              I can’t tell you how many times I’ve written that,

              Posted it,
              Made videos about it…yet peeps still often don’t get it.
              Thank you for getting it! Ok, you already knew—but it confirmed it :)

            • DodoTheLaser

              Oh I get it! And thank you for keeping writing about it, Tory!
              More people will read it, less we need to mention it.

            “The Bunker look like a loony bin, where everyone is a mental patient.”

            S/he must be confusing us with the Miscavige Hospital for the Criminally Insane.

    • TXCowgirl

      Ditto. I been out at dinner for the past three hours and I come back to random, disjointed posts from a rag-troll. I feel so out of the loop. And it’s only Monday.

      It’s the Trollworld alright.

    The Oiliness Table, in person

    • Tory Christman

      eeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwww

    • Great White Clam

      That looks slick. Sick. But slick, too.

      Looks like cheap artificially flavored vanilla pudding under that mysterious dome in the foreground.

      And….. damn….. is the whole place covered in oil? Nooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!

    • kemist

      And that’s the puke machine / carnival ride. It looks like it was scanned from a brochure. The booklet the SP guests received maybe ?

      • KJP in Portland

        Huh, huh, huh, huh, huh, huh, huh!

      • edge

        That’s exactly what it is-a carnival ride, except the whales will pay thousands of dollars to use it. Same thing with the glorified running track. Give it a fancy name (Cause Resurgence), charge top dollar, and the whales will attach a high value to it.

        • TXCowgirl

          They pay for an E ticket ride, but get A ticket results.

      • DodoTheLaser

        This shit is too theta for my stomach and my brain.

        • Great White Clam

          Whiskey can help with that. lol

          • DodoTheLaser

            Whiskey is just as bad. I’ve tried once.

            • Great White Clam

              Maybe you could offset the theta of this shit with a load of entheta.

              But where is the easiest and best place to find entheta, one might ask…..
              Why, just do a google search with ANY $cn term or word!

              Easy!

    • Gigamesh

      Wow, fucking incredible

    • KJP in Portland

      Looks like some posh salon, doesn’t it? (only $3,000 per hour!)

    • L. Wrong Hubturd

      Wowy zowy! Were’d that come from? It’s kind of anti-climactic to see it for real finally. Somehow, it’s not oily enough.

  • Gigamesh

    I think “wordworld” has set a new Bunker record for the most downvotes in the shortest period of time.

    Congrats Wordworld! You deserve this dishonor!

    • Great White Clam

      On for three days. Continues to edit it’s posts. Favorite word is “error.” Itsa itsa itsa “rag-troll” I tell ya!

      • Gigamesh

        Automated bot, you are right.

        • Free Minds, Free Hearts

          WW could be automated, yes. none of his posts is relevant or makes sense, just random sentences.

          • Gigamesh

            I wonder how much Miscavige had to pay for that.

            I also wonder if the person providing that service for Miscavige realizes that they could make a TON of money just to tell mainstream journalists their story.

  • TXCowgirl

    Isn’t the fact that 2 gossip websites (TMZ and ???) took down stories on the same subject, shortly after posting them, a story in and of itself?

    • Great White Clam

      It may be the first sign of a Streisand Effect.

      • TXCowgirl

        Yes, I see what you mean; the story becomes the story.

      • Zana

        What is a Streisand Effect?

        • DodoTheLaser

          “The Streisand effect is the phenomenon whereby an attempt to hide, remove, or censor a piece of information has the unintended consequence of publicizing the information more widely, usually facilitated by the Internet.”

        • jeff

          Dodo has one answer. The other is how to ruin a great movie by making a remake of a remake: “A Star Is Born”.

          • TXCowgirl

            Love the remake. I have a crush on John Norman Howard to this day.

            • jeff

              That was the 2nd remake. The original was with Frederic March (written by Dorothy Parker). The first remake with Judy Garland was the best of the three, in my opinion. And though I love Joan Didion, the Kris Kristofferson/Barbra Streisand one just didn’t do it for me.

            • TXCowgirl

              Every girl goes through a bad boy phase. The Kristofferson version was released during my teen bb phase. Swoon…………

            • jeff

              Funny thing, it was in my teen years, too, but only saw it about a year ago, and maybe that’s part of it’s lack of appeal for me – it seemed dated and not in a good way. On the other hand, Michael Pare in Eddie and the Cruisers…..

            • TXCowgirl

              Oh my, now we’re speaking the same language. :-) Now I’m not going to be able to sleep, thank you very much!

      • TXCowgirl

        I know, that’s my point. Radar has the balls, TMZ and gossipcop do not…..but why? I’ve done a very brief search to try and find some connection between the latter two, a parent company or such, but I haven’t found one yet.

        • DodoTheLaser

          Quoting Media Lush –
          “Obviously there’s a lot of lulzy lawyering going on behind the scenes”.
          They all will catch up shortly.

          • TXCowgirl

            I’ve screen grabbed the Radar article just in case.

    • media_lush

      Radar… the sister site to National Enquirer already called the bluff on Cruise about a year ago when he threatened to sue them [via Bert Fields] on that story of Tommy Girl beating up on his staff.

      I’m not exactly sure what went on behind the scenes but the case was dropped and the that particular story was dropped from Radar [I have the screengrabs on my blog]…. I don’t know if the story was dropped on the National Enquirer site as you can’t get that in the UK

    The Golden Age of Tech 2. The Big Sell. How is it being Sold to the Clams. RindersBlog.

    From org ED to get people to come next weekend for Miss Cabbage Video. To mailing list.

    “All org Executive Directors on earth, 160 of them went to Flag and met with David Miscavige, Chairman of the Board.

    When our ED came back this is what he said:“It isn’t released yet so it’s still confidential. But I’ll give you some clues and you have to guess the rest.“

    Prior to the BASICS (2007) most people didn’t even know what the books of Scientology contained, never mind actually read them. It’s like a Christian who doesn’t know the Bible. Big outpoint!

    “Next, the books were pretty much all wrong; out of order, pieces missing and stuff added by others. Squirrelly!! You know about this right?

    “Nowadays anyone in Scientology who isn’t studying the BASICS is looked on as a pariah. It is a 180 degree turn from “the way things always were” in Scientology to Bang! The Basics. Present Time!

    “Look here’s a quiz: Whaddya think’s been going on with everything else in our religion???? The books were messed up but everything else was perfect?? C’mon!!!????

    “Look — I can’t tell you more. But you really ought to come see this release. Ideally you go to Flag this weekend (15,16,17) or see it here a week later (23,24).”

    WHO SHOULD COME AND WHY:

    Bring a friend whose case is screwed up or who can’t study. Bring a friend who quit.

    Bring a friend who wanted to be an auditor. Bring a friend who thinks he’s Clear or OT or aberrated–but not sure which one.

    This is for everyone who ever tried. You’ll maybe cry your eyes out but you’ll also laugh with relief.

    ALL WILL BE REVEALED. Scientology is easy again.

    Anyone can win. Anyone can make it. It’s not your fault.

    This is a renaissance. The birth of a New Scientology. The beginning of a new world. It will be a religious experience, believe me.

    SOMETHING WONDERFUL IS HAPPENING.

    Spread the word. Bring them all. Call the org 604-681-9121 for details and reservations.

    We anticipate a sold-out venue. Numbered tickets (no charge) will be required to guarantee seating. SRO (Standing Room Only) will be available upon sell out.

    You can write me back too for more info.”

      Too little, too late. Nice try though. Scientology’s swan song.

      • Tory Christman

        Exactly! I liked the line: “Scientology is easier again”.
        Really? And is it affordable again?
        I didn’t think so.
        Check please.

          That was funny. :-)

              Private message…but I guess you can’t here. Can you go to my FB site?

            • Dog Saluter

              Can do. Right now.

            • Tory Christman

              Did you do it? Oh hell…just call me: 818-588-3044 :) It’s on the Net, anyways :)

            • Tory Christman

              Over to you….The FB name you gave me is a celebrity and it just comes up with his pics, not a FB site. Just call me when you can, plz. :)

            • Douglas D. Douglas

              Oh my stars and garters! Are you ever lucky it’s so late at night! We have the NICEST people here during the day who get the vapors whenever anybody posts anything remotely resembling personal information. Poor derek finally HAD IT one day and just went off on one of them.

              Nice people, though. really.

            • Tory Christman

              Well ya know what? They don’t own the Bunker…any more than Scientology owned the Net back in the 90′s when they tried to. I’ve had my personal # on the Net since 2000. I put it there as I knew OSA would IF I did not. I’ve met many delightful peeps because of it. I understand their concern, and they (whomever u are talking about) need to respect people’s personal decisions. :)

            • Dog Saluter

              Thanks Tor, I’ll call you tomorrow!
              And DDD – “stars and garters” – love that one!
              Early morning all, gotta run, chat tomorrow!

            • Tory Christman

              Don’t call me before noon, please. I have to do some business in the am. :)

            • Dog Saluter

              I can’t seem to find you on fb but you should be locate me pretty easily. Hit me up!

            • ThetaBara

              That’s crazy that we can’t find each other even with search. I get nada. But, here’s my url: http://www.facebook.com/theda.bara.967 so maybe try that? Stupid failbook.

            • Dog Saluter

              Seems disqus is spazzing again. You can FB me at Bruce Wayne Eckelman – try that.

            • Dog Saluter

              All right, I give up after three or four more messages on Disqus which seem to have disappeared. I’ll dig up your contact info to get ahold of you.

        • L. C. Spencer

          I know it would never happen, but a person can dream, can’t she?

          • DodoTheLaser

            I was hoping you will finally show up here again!
            Now I know what to say to summon my friends :)

            • stateofcircle

              I’m always around, but nowadays with all the new and numerous bunkerites and the orders of magnitude of comments, there isn’t much left for me to say or contribute, and it’s tough to keep track. Aaaaaanyway, I hope all is going well with you and yours, and let me reiterate that I WILL hunt you down and shake the stupid out of you, and I remember the what your local org was so I can find you! (in a tototally non creepy and stalkery way of course) :)

            • DodoTheLaser

              :) Nice to know. You are good friend I never met. Thank you for being around!

        • Graham

          “Next step is amnesty.” An interesting thought. It would run very counter to $camatology’s aggressive ‘F*** you’ nature but when there are more people out than in an amnesty would make sense (Not that any $camatology strategy ever made sense).

          • DodoTheLaser

            It would only make sense at this point indeed.

    • valshifter

      “ALL WILL BE REVEALED” so what were they studding before? kabbalah?

      • valshifter

        “Anyone can win. Anyone can make it. It’s not your fault.”
        so who’s fault is it then?

    • Great White Clam

      WHO SHOULD COME AND WHY:

      “Bring a friend whose case is screwed up……”

      Can’t do that cause can’t talk about case.

      “Bring a friend who quit.”

      Can’t do that cause if someone “quit” she/he is most likely no longer a friend and if the person was officially declared – do they even bother with that tiny technicality these days? I think they stoppped
      issuing goldenrod – their only terminal is the IJC via blah blah blah…..

      She really danced better last week than this, and though I am disappointed she had to go, I think the whole experience was like therapy for her. She became not only a better dancer, but seemed to have developed a stronger sense of self.

    Question for the recently departed:

    Were you all given sneak peaks of the 5th floor toys? We all got to learn about it from the release of the schematics and renderings TO posted, but were you all aware of what was up there on the 5th floor too? Was the tasty white, sci-fi carrot dangled?

    • Jimmy Threetimes

      I suspect that the recently departed will be in no hurry to answer you.

      • Great White Clam

        We could hold a seance.

        • Jimmy Threetimes

          We just need booze and a ouija board.

          • GlibWog

            OMG and ask for HUBS.. I want to ask a question..

            1. Did you ever brush your teeth?

            • Jimmy Threetimes

              The thought of LRH’s thetan/spirit/whatever answering to the name “HUBS” is hilarious

            • GlibWog

              hahahha Of all his nicknames .. Hubs is my favorite.. But bring him up.. Good God..

              Scarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrry to think about .. WHAT AN EVIL SPIRIT CONJURED UP.. ugh

              Wearing a gold and diamond grill.

            • Great White Clam

              Yes! A diamond-studded BBQ grill worn as a pendant on a golden chain (with very large links)! Talk about stylin’!

            • TXCowgirl

              I meant a golden, sparkly grill for his teeth. Why not both? There is no such thing as excess where Hubs is concerned…except body thetans.

            • Great White Clam

              Do you think he’ll sport the ascot?

          • Great White Clam

            We could drink DodoTheLaser’s whiskey, he won’t miss it!

            Why even mess with a board? We could do automatic writing!

            It worked for L Ironic Hubsurd and his good friend Illstar Crawley!

            • DodoTheLaser

              I wouldn’t wish whiskey even to an enemy. But that’s me.

      • L. Wrong Hubturd

        You know what I mean…..not JUST blew as of this last weekend, but people like Bob who are on the way out or been out a year or so.

          • GlibWog

            OHHH yeah baby…OH speaking of baby… I’m Baby now.. There is another Glibby who has been involved for 10years who asked if I would change it..

            So I am Baby.. I’ll wear a diaper so you know it’s me..hahaha

            • TXCowgirl

              :-) I knew that, but forgot in all of the exciting convention party talk.

            • TXCowgirl

              The Glibster? Gliboreno? Glib the Magnificent? ……Baby it is.

            • GlibWog

              My nickname has been baby since the 4th grade because I stomped my foot when I didn’t get my way.. and when I’m Tommy Davis Mad I still stomp my foot..haha Baby

            • TXCowgirl

              Then you’ve earned you nickname. It’s almost 2:00 am here in Tejas. Off to the Land of Nod. Zzzzzz……….

            • GlibWog

              night Cowgirl..pleasant dreams.. Yawwwwwwwwwwn I’m getting close…

            • Tory Christman

              Yes, I’ve known, posted with, picketed with and shopped with “I’m Glib” for many, many years. She’s in many videos of we all picketing here in LA. So thanks, baby. You don’t need to wear a diaper though—you can be a foxy baby. :) Just a thought ….

            • TXCowgirl

              If memory serves me right, Baby is referring to yet another poster who actually uses the screen name “Glibby.”

            • GlibWog

              Yes.. and I so respect her for her 10 years of supporting the effort that I joined not that long ago.. So of course she has earned the name!

              OOOOOOh Foxy baby..hahaha I’ll wear a fox mask.. xo Baby..

      • Graham

        Thanks for the link TX. John Sweeney, Jamie de Wolf and out very own Michael Leonard Tilse already confirmed. A bit far to travel for me at my age (Almost 5 000 miles). Or is it….? I’ll have to give it some thought.

    • Douglas D. Douglas

      Shall we all head there RIGHT NOW? And wait for the announcement of the date…?

      • GlibWog

        You know D.. If you haven’t read it yet.. OMG the speakers lined up for the event is amazing.. Just amazing..

        I haven’t signed up yet.. I will.. You will see the donation run down.. It is free to all..but they are trying to get donations in to assist with the speakers expenses to get there.. The speakers are not getting paid.

        I’ll sign up this week.. I would suggest signing up when you can.. and then when date is announced you will be good to go..

        Also.. They have the Place Secured that they are planning to hold the event.. Woo Hoo..but not announced..

        I would love to meet you !!!!!! Baby

      • ThetaBara

        LOLOL! I know, ironic. I can’t commit without knowing the date and IDK how I would make it out there anyway. It does sound awesome though. Maybe they’ll do one on the west coast sometime and I can go!

      “unfortunately not for us in the UK”. Or perhaps FORTUNATELY for us in the UK?

      Thinking about it, though Ella Raiche’s tech will give her power over MEST etc {Hence her being able to stay constantly at her preferred weight- ahem} there doesn’t seem to be anything in the Tech which gives $cieno’s a sense of humour. No sense of humour Tech. I wonder why? Strange considering Ella Raich himself must have been laughing all the way to the bank.

      • Robert Eckert

        Ella Raich wanted to make sure he was the only one laughing.

    • DodoTheLaser

      Pretty lame episode.

  • Antonio

    How does her “integrity” not let her stay, but she finally leaves because she was terminated. I guess being fired does not mean what I think it means… Back to the dictionary for me.

    • Charlotte

      You referenced The Princess Bride, so I love you

    • Yeppir

      My impression is that she really hoped she could change things. And I certainly understand not wanting to be without a job… Fired means exactly what you think it means, and the fact that she was resistant to the “study tech” and was fired for it speaks volumes about the Smiths’ ethics (you know, REAL ethics?) and the NVLA as a whole.

      Good try, though. That’s funny.

    • tetloj

      There are organisations I’d be honoured to be fired from, especially if it was for speaking my mind.

      • EnthralledObserver

        Nah… I’m here, as always… and we got there. :)

        • tetloj

          Where do you hide? Or do just pounce when you see ‘one more comment’ appear on the screen?

          • EnthralledObserver

            Yeah. pretty much the pounce tech… in between Mummy duty… ;)

  • EnthralledObserver

    Is there anyone here who thinks I might be a sock for an OSAbot?

    • EnthralledObserver

      Is the up-vote a sign that someone does?

    • tetloj

      Well to be fair you do have the letters O, S and A in your screenname (actually b, o and t as well if we use the O twice). You’re nicked sunshine.

      • EnthralledObserver

        *gasp* busted… lol

    • Jimmy Threetimes

      I think everyone who posts here wears socks.

      • EnthralledObserver

        *looks at feet* not today though…

        • Jimmy Threetimes

          That’s because it is summer in the land of backward flushing toilets. You are not over and done with wearing socks for good.

          • EnthralledObserver

            You might think that Jimbob… but I’m on the Tropic of Capricorn… I can resist socks forever if I really had to…

            • Jimmy Threetimes

              So you think… and you probably think that the OSA is the only organization running covert ops here, too. But I have it under good authority that Hanes and Fruit of the Loom are both deeply, oh-so-deeply embedded in this here Bunker.

              You’ll wear socks again. Just wait.

            • EnthralledObserver

              *considers burning all my socks so am not tempted* *but then remembers that at least three of my children wear socks that would fit me* Damn… foiled again!

            • Jimmy Threetimes

              It wouldn’t hurt to burn them anyways. Then buy brand new socks for your whole family, maybe from great companies such as Hanes or Fruit of the Loom.

            • EnthralledObserver

              It’s a losing battle, I see that now… I am a sock… wearer…

  • Hubbub

    The terms Qual and Debugging… can someone tell me what those are? (or point me in the right direction to a resource that will explain them?) Just curious.

    • Eclipse-girl

      These are listings of Scientology on various cities Craig’s Lists.

      Sci-lons use it to get more people in.

      We flag them to prevent them from using Craig’s List. After 4 or so flags, from different IP addresses the ad is usually removed. I used SPAM as the reason why I flag them.

      For more detail, write a comment in response to jmh and that person will direct you to a thread at Why We Protest that will explain some more

      Tony O also had a blg entry, probably three weeks ago, about the effectiveness of this latest campaign.

    • George Diaz

      Qual stands for “Qualifications Division” (Div. 5) one of the 7 Divisions in an “Org Board”, arguably one of the two most important – the other being HCO Division [HCO = Hubbard Communication Office] (Div. 1). It has 4 departments; one of them being “Correction”, although these have changed thru time.

      For ex., this where you find the
      CASE CRACKING SECTION, a section in the Dept. of Review in the Qualifications Division of a Scientology Church. This section audits cases (students or HGC pcs or other pcs in difficulty such as field auditor rejects) to a result. (HCO PL 24 Apr 65)

      Also:
      QUAL, the Qualifications Division (Division 5 of a church) where the student is examined and where he may receive cramming or special assistance and where he is awarded completions and certificates and where his qualifications as attained on courses or in auditing are made a permanent record. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III)

      Debugging, from DEBUG, which means to get the snarls or stops out of something.

      So “Qual” has several functions: Correction of “flat ball bearings” as they say in Scienospeak, Cramming (more on this, below), Certs (short for certificates) and Awards ; and it’s also where the Dept. of Personal Enhancement (for staff only, to make sure they have no misunderstood words, etc.)

      CRAMMING, 1 . a section in the Qualifications Division where a student is given high pressure instruction at his own cost after being found slow in study or when failing his exams. (HCOB 19 Jun 71 III) 2. the cramming section teaches students what they have missed. This includes trained auditors who wish to be brought up-to-date on current technical developments. (HCO PL 13 May 69)
      I think that’s, perhaps, a little more than you wanted to know. You’re a Scientologist, now. Carry on. (lol)
      But seriously, if you have any questions, I’ll be more than happy to help. Might as well use this *crap* for a good purpose: Educating others as to its menace to society & its totalitarian, mind-numbing, brainwashing potential.
      HCOB = HCO Bulletin (Technical) HCO PL = HCO Policy Letter (Administrative) 3 parts to Scn : Ethics, Tech. and Admin.

      • Hubbub

        It’s all very fascinating. So in the case of the scientology school, Qual and debugging are just intensive tutoring sessions to get them through their scientology levels and course levels?

        Some good IS coming from your knowledge of all this crap –not just in teaching the curious like me…. But I know what you mean…. It’s this ridiculously large construct of another reality. It’s never-ending. Just when I think I’ve read it all, the next crazy piece comes up.

        Thanks again!

        • George Diaz

          Yes, and to thoroughly indoctrinate you; especially, in the case of a young child. You can imagine. Don’t need to be a rocket scientist. What you need to be is in a state of suspension of your critical thinking abilities, one’s natural or innate skepticism and a little bit of salt and pepper (reason and logic) Now, you can understand why Smith’s son said what he did when he tweeted school makes you dumb or some such stupidity. I forget exactly what he did say. Basically that one didn’t need school tweeted to MILLIONS of his followers: DANGEROUS! No wonder America is falling behind so many countries in education; specifically Science, or the sciences – and at a time when we need them the most. We need -always do- MORE education; not LESS. Obviously. But I’ve a feeling I’m preaching to the choir, here.
          Qual and debugging hammers in, nails the DOGMA of Scientology into your brain so you feel terrified to “squirrel”. Debugging is fixing or getting rid of the bugs that “Study Tech” didn’t catch or fix & it happens in Qual., the Qualifications Div. of any Scn Org. Study Tech happens in the Technical (Tech) Div. Scientology’s “academies” throughout the world; which are mostly empty as we speak. ;-D
          Yes, indeed. Crazy is the name of the game in Scn. And to brag a little. I may not be Jon Atack but well, there was this story I heard when a friend took over for a member of the Commodore Messenger unit -usually young teens- so he could go do something. Ron always had three messengers standing outside his door so he could communicate with anyone instantly (before the age of cell phones & texting and I guess he liked the “personal touch”, like sending a young 13 yr. old girl to scream in your face: The Commodore says YOU’RE A FUCKING ASSHOLE! :) Well, this young man was called in and he was all nervous to be in the presence of SOURCE (Ron) said “You think I’m God, don’t you?” And the young man managed to get out a “Yes…. Sir… I, I sure do”. Or something similar (paraphrasing) And Ron supposedly answered, “Well, I’m NOT….But I’m DAMN CLOSE!” and probably burst out laughing like Tom Cruise or let out a hearty laugh. So, I may not be Jon Atack (if you know of him) but I’m DAMN CLOSE! ;-D
          I’ve put in literally THOUSANDS of hours into researching BOTH sides. That’s how I got out in 2005. It’s, I liken it to, “reading the buy-bull” as the best way to make one a Devout Atheist (chuckling)
          So, it’s IN DEED, *my* pleasure!

          • Hubbub

            Again. Thank you. Re: your story…. The being God (or Jesus, or close to it) idea came up in a Rolling Stone piece I read today about Charles Manson, too. There are a lot of similarities .. and seemingly some shared foundational influences between Manson and LRH — OTO/Crowley stuff, perhaps. (I did read that Manson toyed with scientology and that their was an emeter at his ranch, though it doesn’t seem like he really practiced it.) They both also seemed to share an inability to care about others, a belief that others were there to serve them in any which way desired, and an ends justify the means mentality, with a lack of compassion for human life. They both loved their drugs, and they both seemed to be manipulative and hypnotic in their “charm” in terms of finding blind followers.

            • George Diaz

              I agree with your assessment. Neither Ron nor Manson had ANY empathy for others. I’ll tell you a little story you may or may not know about Charlie. Yes, he dabbled in Scn for a bit, and when asked (forget by whom) if he was going back (he was supposed to have gone clear) he said, “HELL NO! Those Mother_uckers are CRAZY!” That, in itself, says a lot about Scientology, right there; when Charles Manson thinks you’re crazy. :o)

            • Hubbub

              Love that. Scientology is too crazy for Charlie Manson. hah.

            • George Diaz

              Imagine that, huh? It was too crazy for me, too; once I found out the truth. The problem is they don’t give you the truth right away. It’s a slow or gradual bait and switch* scam. You are given a few “gems” with which one can agree, at first. In the very beginning one learns about A-R-C (their ARC triangle) or Affinity, Reality and Communication; which is supposed to add up to or result in Understanding; hence A+R+C = U. Only problem is under closer examination or scrutiny, that’s not true either but it’s plausible & seemingly innocuous. I thought I had learned one of the truths of the universe. Ah, *Affinity* (Scn’s word for Love or liking) Anyway, that’s how they get you. Then you’re given something else with which you can agree, and so on. All the while, you’re giving them money & support. It’s a trap, a scam and a dead end. The things that are promised are just never realized. One is not advancing as a being; or going up the Bridge™; one is spinning one’s wheels like a gerbil or a hamster; or going around a maze like a trapped rat. And one has to buy or pay for that “Bridge™”

              That’s why I fell in love with this saying from an anonymous ex-member:

              “I joined a “religion” started by a science fiction writer who promised to teach me the secrets of the universe and used the *double cross* for its symbol; and then, they tried to sell me a Bridge™…..what could have possibly gone wrong?”

              Another popular symbol is the *pyramid* or triangle. Is that for “pyramid scheme?” Which reminds me of this: “The best place to hide something, as any good magician knows, is right *in your face*.”

              I altered it a little for myself. The original was:

              “I joined a religion started by a science fiction writer that used a double cross as its symbol, and then they tried to sell me a bridge…..what could have possibly gone wrong?”

            • Hubbub

              I’m glad you were able to break through it. I also appreciate your explanation of how people get sucked into it. I think that is important information. As much as we all want to judge or think people are foolish for buying a bridge in Brooklyn – or Teegack (sp?), as the case may be – we all have our needs and wants that make us susceptible to something. Hub’s organization was carefully structured to take advantage of that. It’s genius, really. Unfortunately, it was/is evil genius.

            • George Diaz

              It is genius. I agree. Madman scientist/psych EVIL genius, combined with a little or a lot of Aleister Crowley/Satanic EVIL genius. And two EVILS, genius or not, make a double-whammy EVIL. It’s EVIL… most definitely. His son, Nibs always said his father DIDN’T worship Satan; he wanted TO BE Satan. He wanted to be “one with Satan”. And, after Crowley died, it was *his turn*. He felt he was the rightful heir to “the throne”. Personally, I don’t believe in anything as Satan, or the Devil, etc. but I DO believe there’s evil in the world, of course. But it is created by ignorance, by greed, and ultimately, a lack of TRUE WISDOM; or perhaps, just a little ordinary, garden variety, run-of-the-mill *common sense.*

              That’s how he described non-Scientologists or WOGs (Worthy Oriental Gentlemen), as “ordinary, garden variety, run-of-the-mill humanoids”. Well, it took us a while but these humanoids are finally showing Mr. Homo Novis up. “That’s all I have to say about that.” “Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get” — “on the internet” ;-D First two quotes by Forrest Gump. Additive by Yours Truly. B^|

            • Hubbub

              On evil and satan, etc…. yeah… I’m with you. I don’t really believe in the devil, and I use the word evil sparingly. I, perhaps naively, believe that people are basically good. But then there are people who come along and prove me wrong — Hubbard, serial killers, conmen like Madoff, not to mention Hitler types, etc., who don’t seem to have a conscience. “Stupid is as stupid does.” :) Happy Thanksgiving, G.D. I’ll be giving thanks for the good-hearted people around us.

            • George Diaz

              “On evil and satan, etc…. yeah… I’m with you.I don’t really believe in the devil…”

              Yes, I believe I said as much. :) Even evil men have a conscience; they just don’t seem to heed it as well as the rest of us. ;-) Happy Thanksgiving, Hubbub

    • George Diaz

      Debug or Debugged, Debugging as opposed to Bug, Bugged or Bugging. Debug = To get the Bugs or kinks out. Debugging would, obviously be the action and Debugged, when all is straightened out and running smoothly. Ex. The “Church” of $cientology and its Dwarfenfuehrer, Admiral Davie *Demented Megaloman* Miscavige are BUGGED down in the mire of their own making and will NOT be “debugged”

    Ottawa, ON-Kim Jong Un, Ann Coulter, and Scientology Head David Miscaviage Form Axis of Evil

    The Chief Computer Hacker and Head of Intelligence for Canada, Dudley Trudeau, announced today that he had intercepted details of a secret meeting between North Korean and Scientology dictators Kim Jong Un and David Miscaviage and right-wing agitator Ann Coulter. They were overheard forming an Axis of Evil, plotting world conquest, and splitting up Earth between the three of them-all while arguing over a restaurant bill. It was finally settled by sending the entire restaurant staff and their families to “The Hole,” a new name for Kim’s new labor camp.

    The clandestine meeting apparently took place in the just-opened “Super Power” building of the Church of Scientology in Clearwater, Florida. While discussing their newly formed Axis of Evil, all three worked on developing various super-powers. Apparently, the diminutive leader of Scientology tried the enlarging ray, only to shrink even more, and the portly North Korean tried the strength machines in order to look more like Dennis Rodman, only to end up looking more like Bouncing Boy.

    Ann Coulter was trying the weight machine and not succeeding at all, causing all three of them to start yelling and ordering people tortured and killed, reported the Canadian Intelligence Agency. The meeting ended with all three of them agreeing to try to bring someone with an atomic weapon to the next meeting.

    Not surprised that Smith is so deeply into Scientology. Always thought he was a narcissist.

      I’m still waiting to hear about Oprah. Her favorite guests seemed to be Tom Cruise, Will Smith, Kirstie Alley and John Travolta.
