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

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.

Sunday Funnies: Scientology has only its ‘humanitarians’ to help it refurbish eyesores

OTMaidenVoyageWe’re heading back to New York today after our visit to the fine city of Detroit for the Netroots Nation conference.

Yes, it was a challenge to keep the blog going while we were attending the confab. Especially Thursday afternoon, when we were scrambling to post the decision by the Texas Third Court of Appeals in Monique Rathbun’s lawsuit while we were sitting in the press section at the big shindig at Detroit’s COBO center, waiting for Vice President Joe Biden to arrive and make his speech.

And if you think that sounds glamorous, here’s the view of the stage from the press section…

 
BidenView

 
Smokin’ Joe didn’t disappoint, speaking off the cuff and going off into the weeds the way he has a habit of doing. And the rest of the conference was productive, but we didn’t want to leave town without at least a nod to the local Scientology scene.

We went by the building that has been purchased to become Detroit’s Ideal Org, and maybe someday it will open, after several million dollars has somehow been extracted from the twenty or thirty Scientologists who live in the area. The building is right downtown, and it features a rather ornate door…

 
DetroitDoor

 
On the door, there’s a sign, and here’s our (rather washed out) close-up on it…

 
DetroitSign

 
That clever sign was placed on the door by one of our own Bunkerites, the indomitable 1subgenius.

Last night, your proprietor met 1subgenius for fine malt beverages at Jacoby’s downtown. And a fine time was had by all.

Now, let’s get on to our Sunday Funnies, our weekly sampling of Scientology fliers that went out to church members in the last couple of weeks.

We love the quote in this first item, begging for money to complete building renovations in the west U.S. Note the key line…

“Humanitarians are the driving force behind the completion of Ideal Orgs.”

Translation: Our rank-and-file members continue to abandon us, and our only game left is holding desperately onto the wealthy “whales” who are keeping us afloat with their donations.

Last night on L. Ron Hubbard Way in Los Angeles, the last of the four Maiden Voyage parties happened. Scientology leader David Miscavige really made up for things this year after Maiden Voyage was cancelled altogether last year.

We trust “IAS Night” was a fabulous success last night, and everyone went home a few thousand dollars poorer. We look forward to some photos, which will probably show up in future fliers.

Hey, Carly Crutchfield gave a boatload of money to create a new Ideal Org in New Zealand! Carly is a celebrity down under and has been the source of unflattering press accounts in Australia for her perceived failings in real estate matters. But it appears that she has enough laying around to send a bunch to David Miscavige for his building fetish!

      Bad, bad Dodo. Now need to cleanse my brain from this dross with a dose of fine smoky saxophone.

      The “Final Countdown” flyer is ridiculous though. Next year, if the Fleawinds is still afloat and has not simply become salvage/junk, will the clams forget that 2014 was meant to be the final countdown? What’s next…The-Even-More-Final-Countdown? The No Kidding This Time We Really Do Mean It Countdown? Final Countdown Revisited?

    • L. Wrong Hubturd

      When I was still teaching, the students had a timed drill to execute. I always had that song cued up and when they got down to about a minute left, I let it rip. Many of them were young enough and clueless enough to have never heard Final Countdown before. Others would say “Hey, my dad plays that song!”

      • L. Wrong Hubturd

        And speaking of that flyer….holy 1.1 Batman! Is that still Aknu? They get a 1.1 pass because of the connection with Michael Jackson or something?

      • DodoTheLaser

        What were you teaching?

        • L. Wrong Hubturd

          Basic electronics and soldering. They had to solder cables to use in the studio. Timed soldering of XLR cables really made people nervous….and my Final Countdown song did not help!

          • DodoTheLaser

            Haha! Cool on electronics and soldering.
            I went to a class like that in a middle/high school.

  • Elar Aitch

    Unhinged. Unleashed. Unstoppable. Insouciant?

    Carly Crutchfield should continue the alliteration and make herself Cazy Carly Crutchfield – I’m sure there are some other C words we can come up with. The CC Chanel belt which matches her initials – Just keeping it classy, Crazy Carly.

    • Mighty Korgo of Teegeeack

      I went to the site and read the information but did not watch the videos or look at part 2. It was sickening. I know a few people like that who are 100% bluster and 0% substance. Scientology could only serve to make the situation worse. May she return to her days in the housekeeping industry, where she did some good for people.

  • i-Betty

    I remember when you hung that sign up, 1sub. Do you still have the photos? I’m amazed it’s still up! Nice work :D

    • TheHoleDoesNotExist

      And where, may I ask, is 1Sub this fine morning? We’re up. I’ll bet he expects us to make breakfast for him now. the fact that sign is still up means no one has bothered the building for how long now? hahahha

            Well, they go down easy, too…

            Allegedly!

      • 1subgenius

        Oh hell, I was up before dawn.
        Checked the obits. Not there, so I started my day.
        I was extremely hung over on May 20, 1974, and checked the obituaries, the first of a regular routine.
        I wasn’t there, but believe it or don’t, guess who was? (refresh for pic)
        I’ve saved it all these years, because who would believe it?
        My life is like that. No one would believe it.

        • TheHoleDoesNotExist

          Yep, you were there with Tony. I recognize the morning after blathering.

          Who would have thought Detroit would become a cool hangout this week?

          • Robert Eckert

            Tony invited me too, and I was out of town– and I hardly ever get out of Detroit. Bummer.

            • DodoTheLaser

              I was wondering where you are. Glad you are back.

            • Robert Eckert

              I was at the “Vent Haven” convention in Kentucky (just across the river from Cincy). Many ventriloquists hate the idea of their figures (you can get away with calling them “dolls” but some raise their hackles at “dummies”) being just trashed after they’re gone, so Vent Haven is where they can be donated. They have a yearly ventriloquists’ get-together which is a very unique event (my buddy is into ventriloquism, I haven’t attempted it in years).

            • DodoTheLaser

              Ha! I live and work right around that area. Hope you enjoyed it.

            • Robert Eckert

              Good time was had by all.

            • DodoTheLaser

              Great!

            • Robert Eckert

              Last time we went (year before last) we camped by Big Bone Lick state park, just for the name.

            • DodoTheLaser

              That is a curious name. lol

            • Robert Eckert

              It’s a giant salt lick and animals flock to it, but back when there were bison, saber-tooth cats, and even elephants in that part of the country, they would get stuck in the swampier parts, so it was a major early fossil quarry (all the big bones have been removed from the lick long since).

            • DodoTheLaser

              I was thinking if it has something to do with salt. Didn’t know elephants used to hang out in Kentucky. It had to be really long time ago. Thank you for the interesting info.
              It reminds me of this large salt rock that my Grandpa kept next to the farm animals barn.
              Sheep and goats loved it apparently, since it was all polished (licked) looking.

      • mirele

        Thumbs up for pointing out that obviously nobody from the cult has visited in a LOOOOONG time.

        I bet DM sends someone out this very week to get that sign down.

      • DodoTheLaser

        I thought of Evgeny, as soon as I saw Brier too. Oh well, “people die”. Ugh.

  • richelieu jr

    Tony you are a workhorse of incredible capacity!

    Totally, Ron. And the only thing wrong with you is you, Ron.

  • Missionary Kid

    In response to the last, “Words of Wisdom” poster, the phrase, “The only thing wrong with a thetan is a thetan” stimulated me to think, “The only thing wrong with a $cientologist is $cientology.”

    1 Sub, that is a great sign. “DANGER KEEP OUT OF SCIENTOLOGY” is perfect. Something tells me our proprietor had something to do with it. That looks like a metal sign, since it looks like it is wired on to the doors.

          That sign has been replaced many times.

          C’mon, there’s gotta be more to it than that (not that there’s anything wrong with what’s there)!

          • i-Betty

            I snipped it from the slightly longer original. More bottom for your buck!

            I don’t know whether to be mortified by, or apologise for, my snickersnort but as it happens to me by accident quite frequently I feel I should embrace it.

      I just saw we had the same idea about the ‘what is wrong with … is …’.

  • HillieOnTheBeach

    ““Humanitarians are the driving force behind the completion of Ideal Orgs.”

    Translation: Our rank-and-file members continue to abandon us, and our only game left is holding desperately onto the wealthy “whales” who are keeping us afloat with their donations.”

    It’s also putting the pressure on the still-ins to up their status to Humanitarian levels. The graph also points how dismally thin the herd is. It certainly doesn’t corroborate claims of unprecedented expansion.

  • DodoTheLaser

    DANGER. Keep out of scientology.

    To paraphrase one of the sayings of Hubbard:
    The only thing wrong with Hubbard is Hubbard.
    The only thing wrong with Scientology is Scientology.

    • richelieu jr

      Who’d have thought that the solution to Scientology would be David Miscavige?

  • Truthiwant

    I hope those fine malt beverages included a wee dram of Macallan! And that sign is genius, or rather, subgenius.

    Every week, we see someone dressed up as Superman. It’s so sad to think that these dedicated Scientologists paid all that money for superhuman powers and instead have to be contented with a cheap plastic costume with an S printed on it to show off their miraculous abilities.

    Oh, and David Brier’s “One Night Only” doesn’t mean that you have to rush and book your place. It actually means “The original three nights idea was cancelled because nobody showed any interest.”

    • BosonStark

      I don’t know about that — “how to sell more” is certainly a hot topic among the faithful, I mean, the postulate-ful. And maybe the Sea Org will wise up and switch to Superman costumes for their uniform, at least in their end-of-days. Hey, might as well start now.

    • HillieOnTheBeach

      A child dressed up as a superhero, whizzing around the house in his/her fantasy of superpowers is cute.
      Adults doing the same, not so much.

      • kemist

        People who want to do that normally find fun outlets like Comicon or a trekkie convention. Or play RPGs.

        Cosplay and RPGs can be a fun hobby, when you know where it is appropriate to be in character and when it is time to come back to the real world.

        Scientology, for those people who join as adults, is the most expensive cosplay in the world. The most dedicated players join the SO. The problem is that it demands that you stay in character all the time, so that you eventually lose contact with reality – and for your children, it becomes the only reality they know.

        • DodoTheLaser

          This exactly what happens, only gradually.

    • richelieu jr

      It reminds me of the old Bill Cosby sketch– “I’ll give you a red “S”– and a black eye if you don’t get out of here!”

  • Still_On_Your_Side

    I thought Scientologists had to “word clear” all words. From the Meriam Webster Dictionary:

    “Definition of UNHINGED: upset, unglued; especially : mentally deranged
    Examples of UNHINGED
    “destined to become one of the nation’s most notorious serial killers, he apparently became unhinged as a result of being abandoned as a young teen.”

    • 0tessa

      After the wordclearing one has to make a few sentences with the cleared word in order to show its use:
      A student: Miscavige could very well be an unhinged person, the way he treats his fellow sea org members.
      Wordclearer: OK, as such it is a good sentence, but I’ll send you to ethics for criticism on our dear leader.
      Student: that proves my sentence was right in the first place.
      Wordclearer: HCO, bring order!
      The student was taken away to ethics, never to be seen in the courseroom again.

      • richelieu jr

        Lucky bastard.

    • Observer

      By that definition, LRH and Miscavige are both serial killers, though indirectly. Like Charles Manson.

    • http://www.crackpots.us/ DamOTclese2

      “Unhinged” also means “flapping in the breeze.” :) Loose, hanging ready to fall. :)

  • anoni81b4u

    girl scouts has more members. Maybe they can start a new “girl scout” thing .. under the pretense to help the little girls develop into Thetans. Hell Narcanon doesn’t do anything to help people and look at the millions that has raked in. They can call it LRH scouts for little thetans with female parts (sounds like a scientology name) .. then instead of taking the girls camping and teaching them anything … scientologists could make them sell cookies 100 hours a week . hurry … someone call miscavage and tell him the great idea

  • Richard Grant

    Maybe I’m projecting something here, but these Scientology mailers seem to have taken on a strangely hollow quality — as though the people writing and sending them know they are shouting into a large empty space and do not really expect any response, apart from the spooky echo of their own voices bouncing back from the Bunker and from Mike Rinder’s place.

    Even the LRH quotes seem more scatterbrained and off-topic than usual. “The future is a beautiful playground that nobody happens to be combining.” I’m trying to imagine some fervent Scientologist being roused by this effusion of genius to rush out and … um, combine a playground somewhere, I guess. I can’t quite summon a helpful mental image of what this entails, but hope no children are harmed in the process.

    Meanwhile has anyone seen Casey Kasem’s body? Apparently some Loyal Officers have snatched it.

    • BosonStark

      I think one of the purposes of these flyers is to make members think Scientology is spreading like wildfire. Let’s say, for one of these local events, eight people attend. Well, clams at home, who didn’t attend, pretend that hundreds of people attended.

      There is an analogy to be made between this magical thinking and waiting for one’s big win or breakthrough, always at the next level. Clams who staff the Orgs, for example, even ones who think theirs is one of the few empty Orgs, expect that people will start flooding in at some point. They think there’s some tipping point going on, and once enough Orgs are built, whales are harpooned, or whatever, people will come flooding in.

      Another view, with respect to the milking of whales, is that there may be a sense that Scientology is collapsing and or embattled (the evil psychs, SPs, drug use, the Internet), and that these whales are mankind’s last hope. It makes them feel more important than ever.

      • DodoTheLaser

        I think you nailed it, Boson.

    • John P.

      You’re exactly right about the plodding and dull formula-type text in these things. It does seem that they don’t really expect anything to happen, in their heart of hearts, but they keep grinding it out week after week because they don’t know what else to do. It’s kind of like they’re rowing the lifeboat in circles, and the only thing they can think of is to row harder. As I’ve often said, the key mindfuck of fundamentalist belief systems is that the only possible response to discovering that something you’re doing doesn’t work is to do more of it, when what you’re doing is mandated by scripture.

      Edited to add: Oh, and a guy like me from Global Capitalism HQ would naturally think that “combining playgrounds” sounds like some sort of real estate deal involving mergers and acquisitions of amusement park operators.

    the ‘unhinged’ U one, looks like a toilet seat!! down the crapper with $cientology! FLUSH, WHOOSH!! Buh bye!! oh shit, it’s clogged….plunge plunge plunge…what’s this? oh a lil’ niblet…..

    • i-Betty

      So funny :P

  • BosonStark

    And the only thing wrong with Scientology is Scientology. Strong evidence that Scientology brainwashes its members is that they call Ron a “philosopher.” What’s his philosophy — a pile of contradictory BS and space cuckoo, which has so little appeal outside the cult, members aren’t allowed to quote him outside the cult. But inside, you “just know.”

  • Andrew Robertson

    If it’s true that the Devil finds work for idle hands, then there’s no point in him bothering Tony. His jobs would never get done!

    Is is patronizing and rude to point out an error in Mike Ricketts gushing flyer?

    “Learn what validation is all about and it’s power as an OT.” He may be an Ideal Org Humanitarian Patron with Honours OT Ambassador but is rather weak on the use of the apostrophe and sentence structure. I’m quite capable of making spelling mistakes and grammatical errors too, but I don’t claim to be a super literate OT VIII.

    I must check up on Carly Crutch’s real estate record but regardless of any minor peccadilloes, the sooner the Auckland Ideal Org is completed then the sooner New Zealand can become the first Clear Continent. That will teach the psyches to ignore Ron’s wisdom!

  • kemist

    They have finally managed to calculate an actual statistic in their damn “statistics”. Someone learned what an average is. Hurray !

    Perhaps they’ll be able to progress to standard deviation next, and be able to put error bars on their silly little graphs. And would it kill them to open a book that wasn’t written by Hubtard and learn what “order of magnitude” actually means for sane people ?

    The way they misuse math and science terms is one very annoying thing that makes conversation with them go around and around in circles without them realizing they are spewing pure nonsense.

    • Panopea Abrupta

      Running “around in circles” ?

      Next thing you will be talking about pie.
      Though caek-obsessed, the Bunker will certainly pay attention to the math class.

      Lord Hubris did not believe in standard deviations. He was infinitely more deviant than that.
      Sigma is NOT theta.
      And averages – good God, he could only dream of being average.
      The square root of average + (mendacity) x ( boasting + stealing) = $cientology

      • 1subgenius

        That’s funny because I had told the bartender, before Tony showed up, to come over and say, “Aren’t you Tony Ortega?”, but he forgot.

        Which reminded me of a Don Rickles story.

        Don was out with a new girl, and saw Frank Sinatra.

        He went over and said “Hey Frank, I’m out with a new girl, and it would really impress her if you came over.”

        So Frank says he will and later comes over and says hi.

        Don replied in an irritated tone: “Not now Frank, can’t you see I’m busy?!!!!”

    “We are the only chance man has.
    Don’t forget it.”
    – L. Ron Hubbard

    But if you do forget it, Scientology can help you with that, because as a clear you will have a perfect memory.

    I liked your title this morning, Tony, because clams really do conflate this “humanitarian” thing with refurbishing buildings. In other religions, humanitarianism gets down to feeding, clothing, and/or giving shelter and medical help to the poor, or less fortunate anyway.

    Scientology’s idea of humanitarianism is selling Scientology to people by refurbishing a building where people can come and pay exorbitant prices, ultimately, to learn about Xenu and remove dead space alien souls.

    Not across the board, but wealthy people often have a problem with coming to a realization of how foolish they’ve been or that they’ve made a mistake. They will come up with all kinds of justifications because they feel their wealth trumps all, and after all, until they lose it, it is what Scientology celebrates the most.

  • Doc Boucher

    So I’ve noticed in a couple of tese flyers how they are using Superman figure like the Valley one above but of course give no credit to the artist (Alex Roos) or to ackowledge DC Comics. But tghis is typical of a cult who copywrite laws for it own self knowingness (sorry just had to use one of those words. ) Wondeer what Ross or DC would think. Hmmmm.

    • John P.

      I’ve said before that this is intentionally going into a gray area of the law. The people are wearing legitimate licensed Superman costumes. DC Comics got paid for those costumes and the people have a license to wear them. It would be a bit harder for DC to sue the cult based on people wearing those costumes than for the copyright infringements of the past.

      In the past, they simply took movie posters or other representations of the characters and dropped them into the Scientology ads, often with minimal Photoshop tweaking, as if Superman endorsed the cult. There’s no way to weasel out of that type of infringement. I am certain that the cult got multiple cease-and-desist letters. Since they think they’re all super beings they just can’t resist the superhero costume angle once their former avenue for making themselves feel like they’re “Big Beings(tm)” has been taken away.

  • richelieu jr

    Late update:
    I went by the CC Paris again a few days ago, and there was actually someone inside the main room for once! I nearly dropped my teeth.

    I asked for the young woman I had talked to before, by name and the woman there (who insisted on speaking to me in English for some reason- it was quite irritating, as she was French– I think, but certainly not an anglophone) told me she wasn’t there and in fact didn’t work there, could she help me?

    Could she take a message? No. No, she couldn’t.

    While I’d like to think our little conversation got her thinking and she quit, I’m not quite that naïve– I imagine it was more she saw me coming and hid somewhere so she wouldn’t have to deal with my brand of Entheta.

    Oh well. I hope she’s not in any trouble.

In all likelyhood, she wrote a nice K/R on you, they looked you up, and you’re now on a “turn-away” list. Don’t worry, I’m sure there’s a “call-the-police” list with room for your name…

          Regardless, we’re the ones who obey the law – unlike the criminal organisation known as the “church” of $cientology, critics don’t have to break the law. (Not saying that you were or are going to, but if they were to politely ask you to leave, which they do in the UK with known protesters, complying is the better strategy – IMHO.)

  • aquaclara

    Such great funnies this week. But this is topped by the road trip to Detroit, complete with a photo. So let’s see:Toronto boarded up. Chicago still boarded up. Philly still quite empty and boarded up while the handful of staff act busy in the little building. Boston selling their a/c supplies on Craig’s list- finally, a good use for CL. Saint Louis, empty.

    But Detroit, well, empty. chained shut, and with a kick-ass sign to boot. That no staff or public even bothered to notice.

    This is quite ideal.

    What a great little adventure, Tony and 1Sub.

            You know me all to well Espi. My first instinct after reading “I want to pimp slap this bitch” I am certainly not defending Tiny Dictator with this statement, but anyone who thinks he’s the only problem clearly hasn’t finished rinsing the Co$ out of their brain yet.

            • NOLAGirl

              Carcha seems to desperately be hanging on to anything LRH because reading at Mike’s everyday, you can see the shift away from it all with a lot of people. When it’s all laying in a burning heap, some will still be standing there reading from an LRH book. Sad.

You may have been taught that it’s your way or the highway. So what I am about to say might go entirely against your beliefs and those of some commentators here on Mike’s blog, but my comment won’t get shut down or deleted by Mike because out here the ideology of free speech is a very real thing and Mike is now a strong proponent of this. And that’s beautiful.

              In response to a few earlier comments:

              It was LRH who first stated that gay people weren’t fit to wipe your boots on. LRH, not David Miscavige. Don’t get me wrong, DM certainly promulgates this theory, and I spit on him, but it all started with L. Ron Hubbard. This is one of the many reasons critics dislike LRH intensely; his belief system is cruel and twisted and misogynistic and racist and very homophobic. The world has moved on since LRH first put pen to paper, but his doctrines bind you all to his outdated and outmoded theories. There is no escaping the fact that it was LRH who originated these views and used them as building blocks for his ‘religion’.

            I noticed that Rinder uses “corporate Scientology” when referring to COS, lest he tar the wonderful “indies” with the same brush. Very nice of him to recognize the intrinsic difference between the “corporate Scientology” and the Indies. See, in “corporate Scientology” it’s all about Miscavige! And money! Boo! But in Indie Scientology, every man (or woman) gets to be their own Hubbard (or Miscavige)!! It’s much more democratic.

    “35 is the average and correct order of magnitude.” And the Valley Doorknobbers are at 39. I am trying to figure out how that math works (I gave up on the English).

      I was going to post something about the misuse of the term “orders of magnitude”, but it’s yet another case of A Term LRH Used, So We Think It’s Cool.

    Sorry to join the party a little late this morning. Summer is waterfront estate barbecue season at Global Capitalism HQ, and yesterday’s schedule was pretty arduous. Supermodel #1 and I were invited to a shindig at one of the general partners’ waterfront estates, and, of course, since it’s prime intern recruiting season, we were commanded to bring a cadre of the supermodels. This is rarely a simple operation, since it involves firing up the customized Supermodel Transport Van, which is a stretch Mercedes Sprinter van with the last row of seats replaced by a two-seat makeup station, for emergency destination touchups.

    And of course, whenever you introduce one crew of supermodels to another, it’s a pretty bizarre ritual, since they all prance past each other and, through a complicated system of eye rolls, haughty sniffs, and raised eyebrows, comment on each others’ fashion choices. It reminds me of some of the stylized battle scenes between the Sharks and the Jets in West Side Story. But I digress…

    Scientology Detroit: Hey, 1Subgenius, how long has that brilliant “DANGER: Keep Out (Of Scientology)” sign been on the door of the new Ideal Org? Impressive that they’re taking such good care of the real estate that they don’t even deal with a rather clever bit of entheta for months at a time…

    Humanitarians for Ideal Orgs: I am looking at the graph under where they claim that the average number of Humanitarians needed to get an Ideal Org done is 35. The chart shows how many Humanitarians they have in each Ideal Org campaign so far. The average is 15. So after all these years of killer selling to get the money they need for these buildings, they are about 43% of their way to go, on average.

    And the fact that the Valley Org is halfway done even after Nancy Cartwright recently kicked in $1.5 million, even though it has 39 Humanitarians wasting money on this particular white elephant, is stunning. I’m beginning to wonder if they are misstating the amount of money collected for the Valley org because it’s turning out to be a fruitful ground for scamming their members, and if they keep the goal just out of reach, they’ll take in more money, just as they did for 15 years raising 4x the actual construction cost for the Super Power building in Florida.

    Maiden Voyage 4 Event: Yes, I’m looking forward to hearing how Scientology made enormous strides in the last year on eradicating psyciatry. Certainly, the numbers from Big Pharma, Inc., one of the subsidiaries of Global Capitalism HQ, show that there’s no reduction in demand for psych drugs in the US. In fact, we had a banner year last year. Wish we could get someone into that event to hear just what ridiculous “victories” they’re claiming. The APA’s annual convention will be in Washington DC from August 7-10 this year, so it will be really interesting to see if any cult protesters are there.

    And then, a couple weeks later, it’ll be interesting to see what the cult mails out from their “National Affairs Office” to show how their army of protesters cowed the evil psychs, causing them to hide in their hotel rooms. Sort of like one of those wingnut rallies to overthrow Obama where they promise that millions of people will descend on the nation’s capital to demand that the Kenyan Muslim Tyrant abdicate, but they end up with mere dozens instead. Kind of like this one: http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/larry-klayman-rally-overthrow-obama-draws-slightly-fewer-millions-expected

    Creating your Future ad: Now this sounds like how a bunch of us would react if we went to one of those events: we’d laugh our asses off at the craziness of Hubbard’s “wisdom,” then we’d cognite that we were glad we never got sucked into the cult, then we’d laugh raucously even more. Sign me up!

    OT Hatting Seminar: Once again, the illiterates are firmly in charge, saying “Learn what validation is all about and it’s power as an OT.” Perhaps they ought to learn what punctuation is all about and it’s power as a competent, literate human being.

    Buffalo Staff Recruiting Poster: Note that they don’t put the name of the poor sap who’s just joined staff on the poster. Not sure if this is an oversight or if this is because they’re afraid someone in our little community who knew them from before can provide details of how this guy wasted so much talent to go on staff and kill off a ton of brain cells.

    Down Under Ideal ANZO: The featured Humanitarian is Carly Crutchfield, who’s a very shady real estate operator. Google her and you’ll see an immense legacy of broken deals and defrauded customers in her wake. Most of them mention the Scientology connection. Carly makes all-around sleazebag Grant Cardone look like an Eagle Scout. It’s stunning indeed that this is the best the cult can come up with to raise money for their operations Down Under. I thought the cult used to bury people who embarrassed them like that, but apparently things are now desperate enough that they promote them.

    David Brier seminar: I haven’t heard of this guy before, but a quick scan of his web site shows that he’s fairly legit in his professional accomplishments. But given the complete lack of interest in the cult in Nashville, I wonder how many people will actually show up. I know there are Anons in the area; it would be interesting to count noses at the event. My bet is that they get less than a dozen people, of which exactly zero are new to the cult. And I wonder how much David is being guaranteed or even if he’s getting his travel expenses paid from his home base in Milwaukee. Wonder if he’ll wake up to the fact that the cult is failing if he’s going to lose money going to events where his FSM commissions are less than his travel expenses, and eventually blow. I’m guessing not, but it could happen.

    Latin Artists’ Convention: Yes, if I were a Latin artist concerned about maintaining and honoring my cultural identity, I’d sign up in a second for a convention based on an ad that details no actual understanding of Latin cultural issues. Especially the part about how the flyer at the top is addressed to “Latin or other Actors, Musicians, …” Just what I want: to go to hear a bunch of completely clueless gringos tell me how to act Latin. Kind of like the “Black Acting School” in Hollywood Shuffle as seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HoqmCwp95Q8 where all the instructors are whiter than white. I am surprised that this flyer didn’t ape the classic Orange County flyer celebrating the Inglewood Org by asking people to wear their “Pancho Villa duds,” just like they asked people to honor black culture by wearing “soul duds” to the party.

    Silicon Valley Ideal Org event: I note that they just can’t help themselves with the superhero stuff. But at least they’re wearing the costumes which were bought and paid for, so it’s not quite as blatant a copyright violation as we used to see in the past. How low the cult has fallen, to live in fear of studio lawyers’ cease and desist letters.

    And yes, “unhinged” does not mean what they think it means. Quite a screw-up for people who spend an inordinate time consulting dictionaries while “word clearing.”

      “The APA’s annual convention will be in Washington DC from August 7-10 this year, so it will be really interesting to see if any cult protesters are there.”

      This is their traveling marketing van/display vehicle. It shows up at a lot in anti-psych events. Even if zero people show up, which may very well usually be the case, the CchR marketing display van cruises the protest site. For example, in Brooklyn, at Kings County Hospital psychiatric wing, nyaprs[dot]org, in support of Esman Greene [http://www.newyorkinjurynews.com/2008/07/04/jamaican-woman-dies_20080704109.html] held a protest. Various New York television stations sent a news van, with a correspondenet, a soundman and a cameraman.

      There were perhaps 80 people there, with a speaker stand et al, and promised appearances by local NY City Council men/women, along with a over-large NYPD presence to keep people from being in the street obstructing traffic (on a low-traffic side street). And there, then, came the $cilon CchR marketing van, cruising by, slowly driving around the protest site for a time.

      They can’t get people to protests like Ms Greene’s, but they may be able to get 20 or how many ever to appear at the big national psych event.

          sorry, how’s this:

          “Scientology: Think Total Freedom!”

          I went to cramming, and my MU was “Xenu”, which I had mixed up with science fiction writer freedom to concoct and expand on earth’s so very limited definition of religion. The real definition of religion is aligned to the Total Freedom spiritual drive we each have. Sort of “do as one wills” type of creative license, and add to the world’s misperceptions and limited views of religion!

          Changing the definition of religion to include the fantastic truth of the real universe out there! I’m VGIs now!

    • chuckbeattyexseaorg75to03

      It’s all about the 4th dynamic, putting out the money, saving earthlings from the psychs (who are dramatizing their unbeknownst stop stop stop spiritual freedom implanting they got long before even Xenu), so “we” (Scientology Sea Org) can safely audit (exorcise) out the 4th dynamic engram (Xenu’s latest effort to enslave humanoids galactically super SP corporate galactic level style), …..baby!

      thanks to LRH researching and discovering the 4th dynamic engram, and that OT Scientologists now can safely walk through the Wall of Fire part of the 4th dynamic engram, and peel off the body thetans/clusters so all the Xenu implanting of false mental stuff is gone for good!

      Of course, LRH failed, LRH admitted, and LRH’s doing the OT running program still, rejuvenating himself, and earth is sort of factually left with Hubbard’s latest galactic half assed civilization saving job!

      Typical of a galactic gallivanting super star spiritual leader like Hubbard, who thought he had it all taped!

      I completely agree about Valley scamming the members just like Super Power did. I don’t believe Super Power was ever meant to open, but rather be a constantly moving target to raise money.

      Regarding the superhero stuff:

      In the Silicon Valley flyer, those two are most definitely NOT wearing the costumes. I know for a fact that Superman there is basically a guy’s head shopped onto a piece originally painted by Alex Ross. I highly doubt our Silicon Valley friend has that sort of physique. In fact almost all of those pics look like headswaps. I’m not a lawyer, but perhaps Warner has grounds for a complaint since they are using actual artwork owned by DC.

    The Humanitarian label seems to be taken seriously now, it’s in many promo of Scientology.

    Calling the continental sugar daddy Scientologists “Gold Humanitarians” is straight wordplay propaganda.

    This seems a tradition of Hubbad’s wordplay and propaganda writing style to suit his narrative of what Scientology is doing in the world to deal with the actual case problem that all us earthlings suffer, our own all having the big engram called the 4th dynamic engram (the Xenu engram).

    The Scientology sugar daddies are being herded by the labeling of them, into these roles of wider and greater centralized donations!

    The next logical label to validate and centralize the donation gathering to make these Ideal Orgs, will be the International Humanitarians.

    To solve the international problem of this 4th dynamic fundraising, doing it the corporate centralization style, the money problems to build the lesser profitable continents, will be to get some International Humanitarians, to do the sugar daddy donations to build the out lying Ideal Orgs of those continents that don’t have enough local and continental Humanitarians.

    I predict International Humanitarians needed to save the whole world, more from the mega celebrity class level millionaires with huge bucks to burn! And give them private validation and awards quietly! (The Tom Cruise Medal of Valor style backfired.)

    • chuckbeattyexseaorg75to03

      The ad about donating for the 4th dynamic, is about handling the people of earth by eradicating psychiatry, where psychiatry has supposedly wished to stop Scientology/Hubbard’s mental/spiritual Bridge to Total Freedom efforts (which would stop people going “OT” and prevent people from getting up to the case level to do the 4th dynamic engram handling today, that handling is doing OT levels 3, 4,5, 6 and 7 which all directly relate to getting rid of the body thetans that are here messing with us all due to the Xenu/4th Dynamic Engram).

      This Hubbard narrative wordplay of what ails earth, Engrams are the spiritual blocks, supposedly.

      Psychs supposedly don’t credence Scientology’s OT levels freeing people of the 4th dynamic engram, and psychs all for sure don’t believe themselves evil dramatizations of past life humanoids bent on enslaving the populations of the planets where psychs find themselves born (even if psychs don’t realize they are each past life humanoids living out this Hubbard narrative drama)!

      Scientology does not publicly lay out the details.

      It’s up to non members to include the inconvenient but vital relevant omitted details!

    I’ve been using The Hearsay for information on Carly Crutchfield. It seems as though she started marketing herself as some millionaire real estate development guru with no money in the bank and one only one transaction under her belt (it involved many people, at that). The idea is to sell, sell, sell her schemes at seminars to dupes who think they can make it big in real estate. The story of her life she tells her targets is pretty much fabricated horseshit.

    Firstly, some good news. We made a substantial blow to the evil SPs last week by taking down that entheta sign from our Ideal Org.

    Secondly, some not such good news. The sign is back again.

    Thirdly, seeing that nobody wants to volunteer to take the sign down anymore, we will draw straws this time.”

    “The only thing wrong with a thetan is a thetan.” LRH

    While it is easy to dismiss this tautological gem as more Hubbard nonsense, it actually is central to understanding Scientology.

    This circular piece of “reasoning” is why the book Dianetics, The Modern Science of Mental Health makes such extraordinary claims about the abilities obtainable from the state of “Clear.” It is why the early 50’s Hubbard writings and lectures makes such outlandish claims about the abilities of “OT’s.”

    Achieving the incredible abilities Hubbard claims are native to a person who reaches the states of Clear and OT are the central goals of Scientology, for self and others.

    Then, Scientology through Hubbard’s writings and the processes of auditing, brings adherents into a state of mind where they believe they are responsible for everything, good, bad or indifferent that happens to them or will ever happen to them throughout eternity.

    While taking responsibility for ones life is a good thing, like all things Scientology this concept is taken to a teleopathic extreme.

    The central scam of Scientology is Hubbard’s assertions in Dianetics and later works about the abilities obtainable from going Clear and OT. As one nears those supposed “states of being” one realizes they do not have the abilities Hubbard’s said would become manifest. Thus one introverts on what is wrong with oneself because from appearances it seems like everyone else is “making the grade.” Must be something wrong with me, guess I’ll get back on the hamster wheel until I figure out what I’m doing wrong.

    Voila…endless striving for an illusory goal…at great cost.

    Scientology = teleopathy.

    Teleopathy defined: Teleopathy is most simply defined as the unbalanced pursuit of objectives, and the needs of others often are sacrificed during that pursuit. Teleopathy is the separation of a persons sense of fundamental ethics which under normal circumstances prevent the person from behaving in a dishonest manner in pursuit of objectives.

      • Anonymous

        For some reason, this makers of this device do not include Dianetics in their “competitive analysis”: http://www.fisherwallace.com/pages/competitive-analysis

      • John P.

        Rule 1: Never name a medical device “The Stimulator.” It will lead to endless jokes confusing the product with sex toys.

        Note that the “Fisher Wallace Stimulator” doesn’t claim to be a lie detector. It does claim to stimulate the production of serotonin intracranially, which can alleviate depression. Turns out that it actually kinda sorta works for that job. There are not rigorous clinical trials showing significant effectiveness, but it’s “FDA Approved” in that it doesn’t cause harm and it maybe kinda sorta sometimes works on some small percentage of the population. “FDA Approved” is not the same thing as saying “it’s the best available treatment option.”

        In other words, this technique is borderline quackery but not completely bogus like the e-meter. It’s not unlike “cold laser” therapy in this regard, another thing that kinda sorta sometimes works and certainly causes no harm so it’s “FDA Approved.”

        How we know it doesn’t work enough to be meaningful: if it worked as well or better than psych drugs, almost every psychiatrist in the country would be recommending its use. Most “psychs” actually want to help their patients, and would stop prescribing drugs in a second if there was an alternative that worked better.

        And insurance companies would give major incentives in the form of reducing coverage for less effective psych drugs and would give strong incentives to use this class of devices as an alternative to drugs. Some people who are in bad shape with bipolar take $3,000 or more per month worth of psych drugs. A $1,000 device that can be used without supervision is infinitely cheaper.

        Scientology forgets that there is already an immensely effective watchdog group ensuring that psychiatry and psych drugs are effective, so CCHR is completely redundant: insurance companies want cures and they want to stop paying for stuff that’s less effective. So any time a cheaper but better alternative becomes available, one can bet that insurance companies will jump on it and will stop paying for expensive and less effective therapies.

    This sounds nauseatingly familiar. How on earth can a charity have “trade secrets”?

    The American Red Cross boasts of being “transparent and accountable” for the way it spends donations from compassionate people moved to help those in need. However, when the public policy watchdog ProPublica asked for some details on how the Red Cross used funds donated for 2012 Hurricane Sandy victims in New York, the organization begged off, claiming that details beyond broad generalities were “trade secrets” that it was entitled to protect, lest its “competitors” copy or exploit the techniques it uses to help people. (The Red Cross did release more detailed accounts to the attorney general of New York, but under an agreement of confidentiality.) [ProPublica.org, 6-26-2014]

    The focus of most of the last years flyers shown in the Sunday Funnies has been on fundraising and staff recruitment secondly and most times ‘training’ and ‘courses’ are rarely mentioned. The always useful ‘seminar’ from some marketing or sales guru who hopes to reg the audience for his 10-15 commission and then sneak out of town before he is noticed has become de rigueur too. It clearly shows what local and the national execs are pushing. The common layout and color scheme shows a centralized graphics and pr plan. This is what Davy wants to see.

    So ‘status’ has replaced mastery of Lroons auditing and worship of his wit and wisdom. This just shows where the where the successful con artists of the clampire have moved to. Previously, they were case supervisors and body routers who got commission for getting the marks in the door and paying for courses. Now why would a successful case supervisor or auditor stop doing that work and move over to selling ‘statuses’ and doorknobs?

    The lack of new meat to would seem to be confirmed as the only commission now available is in working over the old timers for what ever they have left. When the new meat market dries up, concentrate on the old meat. They are a proven market with known credit ratings and have proven easy marks in the past. Why lasso a new steer when the pen is full of already tamed sheep?

    What no sombreros in the ‘Latin’ artists conference on the Freewinds? No donkeys or Pancho Villa in the ad? Unusual cultural sensitivity for the clams.

  • Mighty Korgo of Teegeeack

    I could tell you why I love Sunday funnies but Mel Brooks expresses the same feelings so much better than I ever could. This is from an interview with Mike Wallace:

    “Hitler was part of this incredible idea that you could put Jews in concentration camps and kill them…How do you get even with the man? How do you get even with him?” he asks Wallace.

    “You have to bring him down with ridicule, because if you stand on a soapbox and you match him with rhetoric, you’re just as bad as he is, but if you can make people laugh at him, then you’re one up on him,” he tells Wallace. “It’s been one of my lifelong jobs – to make the world laugh at Adolf Hitler,” says Brooks.”

    That’s Mel Brooks on Joking and Degrading. Hubbard was no Hitler but I think he would have been, had he ever gotten any real power.

    • Artoo45

      No, not Hitler, but certainly at least a Kim Jong Il. So, is Scientology the North Korea of religions or is North Korea the Scientology of countries?

    • DodoTheLaser

      Hubbard did want to dispose of “SPs” quietly and without sorrow. So there’s that.
      He started talking about it as early as 1951, in his “Science of Survival” book.

    I don’t like comparing Hubbard to Hitler, but this piece of information is slightly different.

    Seventy years ago today, Claus von Stauffenburg planted a bomb in an attempt to assassinate Hitler. The assassination failed and von Stauffenburg was shot. His son Berthold, a boy at the time, was told almost immediately after by his mother about his father’s attempt to murder Hitler. And here is the interesting quote by Berthold von Stauffenburg, now 80, who was interviewed recently by the BBC. When his mother told him that it was his own father who was the person behind the assassination attempt, he remembers saying to his mother “I couldn’t believe it. We were brought up in school and everywhere else, to believe that the Fuhrer was a wonderful man.”

    Does that basic idea not ring true for some other person that we all know?

    When true information is hidden from the public and propaganda is diffused instead, whether it is Germany in the 1940s or Scientology today, the same basic principal of outright lying is applied, and at the same time is very cleverly concealed from those involved.

    • Frank Lee

      One of my father’s friends was shot down over Germany on his first mission of WWII. He was the only man on his crew known to survive. He was taken in and protected in the basement of a German family that had two children, a nine year old son, and a 15 year old daughter. One day the house was surrounded by Gestapo who took them all to a POW camp. The American was marched out onto a platform where he saw the little boy with a metal on his chest watching with a smile on his face while his entire family was executed, he had turned them all in. I always wondered what happened to that boy after the war. This was a high price to pay for brainwashing children, and it haunted the American for many years after.

    http://www.carlycrutchfield.com/images/carly-crutchfield-video-response/Letter-to-Scientology-DISPUTE-WITH-CARLY-CRUTCHFIELD.pdf

    How Carly Crutchfield and Scientologist Steve Fagan screwed over a granny who was in a bad situation. —

    Larraine Bell from Thornlands (Brisbane, Australia) lost her husband. She was sitting on a prime piece of land with a value of around 1.5 million. She had a debt on the property of $500,000. Friend of a friend sends Steve Fagan her way and he’s stoked to buy the property as an employee of CCORP, provided rezoning is completed. Mrs. Bell (along with neighbors) signs a contract with Carly Crutchfield’s CCORP with options, but Steve Fagan assures the property owner verbally that they won’t pull out because they *really* want it.

    Larraine Bell has no income and no way to make payments on the $500,000 debt, so she obtains a high interest $290,000.00 loan (12% monthly interest) in the interim. Normally she wouldn’t have been able to get a loan of that size with no income, but a letter from CCORP stated their business arrangement and it was approved. After an interminable wait the rezoning is completed, she called Steve Fagan, and it quickly became clear CCORP was pulling out.

    The mortgage company that gave her the loan foreclosed on the property. The loan with 12% monthly interest racked up to 1.1 million, but they settled for 865,000. Larraine Bell still owed on the original debt. After her property was sold by the mortgage company, she walked away with no property, no home, and a debt.

    Carly Crutchfield does business like a true Scientologist. She’s sent letters threatening legal action to people who attempt to expose her deceit, manipulation, and fraud.

            • Jimmy3

              If people don’t like it, the worst that will happen is that you will not get upvotes. So it’s not so bad. But, of course, if you to meet your weekly quota of upvotes, you will be banned from the Bunker forever.

              Personally, I have always loved the Simpsons. Mostly the classic Simpsons seasons before it went downhill. I haven’t seen any of the newer episodes. But I have posted Simpsons clips and references here before, and no one seems to mind, or they just ignore it. Loving the Simpsons does not support Nancy Cartwright or Scientology. The entire cast is getting paid a shitload of money whether you are a fan of the show or not.

            • flyonthewall

              This quota will surely drive me to desperation and cause me to hack discus accnts and steal upvotes from public Bunkerites.

      That cop seemed pretty cool for a bit there, but asking them to leave because the clam was getting frustrated is very unreasonable. Since when do you need to stop protesting because the organization/people you’re protesting are getting frustrated? Are you only allowed to protest if the people you’re protesting are okay with it? What the hell?

      • richelieu jr

        Forgive me, but this is the sickness in American political discourse: Take the tow sides, choose position in the middle and that is ‘reasonable’. It doesn’t matter if one side it totally wacko, and the other reasonable, you’ll get slightly wacko result in order to be fair…

        Plus, I don’t know how it was decided that every issue, fro politics to climate change to school lunches, has exactly TWO sides, and of course each must be reported ‘fairly’. So climate change, which no reasonably informed, reasonable person doubts gets as much time as people who believe the earth is flat.

        Scary,sad and dangerous. The ‘compromise here’ for this moron of a cop, it that these people forgo their civil rights (under threat) so that Scientologists making false accusations claiming to be passers-by can feel ‘comfortable’.

        On this, side, a man who feels he has the right to have sex with your wife; On this side your wife and you, who say ‘no way!’

        Let’s compromise and say, ‘Just the tip or a blowjob’, shall we? I mean, hey! Let’s be reasonable, right?”

        • Jimmy3

          You are forgiven, but I think you are mistaken. The ‘equal time’ rule only applies to what can be considered political advertisement or campaigning on radio and TV. It only applies when a candidate requests it. For example, if a television station gives a candidate 15 minutes to speak, a rival candidate can request and must be allowed 15 minutes to speak. There is no law that states every political issue itself must be given equal time.

          Not every issue is covered fairly for both sides, either. Sean Hannity spent the first half of his Fox News show trying to figure out how the Malaysian Airlines shoot-down was Obama’s fault. For more examples, see the rest of Fox News programming.

          • Captain Howdy

            I believe Richelieu is talking about broader things then tv time. The motto of
            “I do not agree with what you have to say, but I’ll defend to the death your right to say it.” is bullshit. Let’s keep telling ourselves that as the militant right get’s closer to staging a coup d’etat and turning this country into a “The Handmaid’s Tale” christofascist nightmare.

            • Jimmy3

              The freedom of speech is not bullshit. I’m proud to live in a country where you are free to say the dumbest shit you can think up and not be persecuted by the government.

              As for the ‘militant right’ and all the second amendment mouth-breathers staging a coup d’état, I don’t know if you really believe that is possible. But I’m pretty damn sure Cleetus and his drinkin’ buddies aren’t capable of taking on the greatest military on planet Earth. You know they have .50 caliber bullets that can change their trajectory mid-flight to adjust to a target now? I’m pretty sure they’re not worried about Cleetus and the Backwoods Bunch’s collection of rifles. But it is still very amusing to hear from them. God Bless America.

              If it came down to it, I believe the military would be just as sharply divided as the general population. There are still the Wesley Clark & Eric Shinseki-type non-insane generals who would not go down without a fight, and they’d bring along plenty of firepower.

              That is what I don’t understand about fundamentalist women. Why do they support misogyny? What’s in it for them? Can their senses of self worth be that low? Do they think “other” women deserve the fundamentalist treatment but that they will/ought to be spared? As far as I am concerned it seems logical that every woman would be as radical and progressive as they come. Just don’t get it.

            • outraged

              I am not sure which ‘fundamentalist women’ you are referring to, but I imagine many many women in the fundamentalist world are abused emotionally and physically and have NO idea that there even is another way to live life. They have never seen it and neither have their mothers. They do not know any other life. So supporting misogyny is like saying that someone whose father is a drunk supports alcoholic dads.

            • http://scientoonery.tumblr.com/ Nat-lificent

              I guess I was thinking of the mouthpieces like Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Candace Cameron Bure, Isra al-Modalla etc. They shill for misogynists and encourage women in their cultures to live a lifestyle of humility and subjugation that they themselves do not embrace in their own lives.

            I am actually speaking of the sort o mentality that says ‘Well, President Obama is accused of not being born in the US, which all legal minds, government authorities and thinking human beings know not to be true. BUT to be ‘fair’ we will have one person from each side on, which make sit seem lieka 50/50 issue and give far too much weight to the erroneous side.

            The news no longer see themselves as being able to call strikes and outs anymore, but rather obliged ot always say ‘Well one side says “A” and the other says “B”, even if the “B” side says there is not man-made climate change. This make sit look like a rational, broadly accepted alternative and permits people to say things like ‘The science isn’t settled’, when in fact it is.

            My other point is that the idea that very issue even has ‘2 Sides’ is ridiculous, let alone than one side might be right and the other left. This creates weird situations where the environment becomes a left/right issue (which is unique to the United States). Itmay surprise a lot of people to find that many issues have several sidfes, and not all of them fall on a ‘left/right’ ((as defined in the States) scale…

            • Artoo45

              It’s the fallacy of the middle ground. This fallacy goes as follows: if there are two sides, then the truth must be in the middle. It’s false reasoning and our media is swimming in it. Vaccines don’t cause autism, there is no middle ground where it kind of causes a problem. Climate change is real, not sorta real on some days. These are typical of issues where there is settled science and expert consensus but the media still trots out wingnuts because it makes other wingnuts feel better.

            • richelieu jr

              Yes, exactly, much better said that when I tried, Artoo!

              “The fallacy of the middle ground”. I like that.

            • Jimmy3

              I mostly agree with you and I believe we have the same political leanings, I’m just not sure why you think it’s always 50/50 equal time for each political issue or news item. I don’t find that to be the case at all. Birthers don’t get hardly any coverage on mainstream American news media. The science and documentation behind climate change is generally accepted by the majority of people here, and deniers don’t get anywhere near equal time on mainstream media. Hardcore conservatives typically don’t want to believe the climate is changing because they fear any acknowledgement of it will lead to more government regulation. But really, the only time you hear from them on mainstream media is during an election cycle. Of course, there are plenty of media outlets with a political agenda, on both sides of the aisle. You will find their opinions there.

              I also see your point about the left/right issue in America. But it is interesting how it is becoming left/right/far right. The Tea Party movement seems to be fracturing the Republican Party to the point where if a candidate is not enough of a right-wing lunatic, they risk losing in primary elections. This is a very good thing for the Democratic Party and for the country, because crazy people typically lose general elections. Well, at least in civilized parts of the nation.

              Just for fun, and not to prove any point, here is a hilarious clip of Seth Meyers making fun of Donald Trump. The Donald has no sense of humor and does not look too happy about being teased. I love it.

          I live in Mountain Veiw. Sometime since 2000 a building on Castro street, the main street through downtown Mountain View, one of the buildings became the Scientology building. Scientology seems not to have had much impact in Mountain View and in 2010, I started visiting downtown again. That ugly sign was still up but there was nothing going on in the building. By 2012, I was going to complain to the city counsel but someone got there ahead of me and the sign came down but it left a really ugly imprint. Finally the building has been renovated and it now serves a useful purpose. My question is, where is the new scientology building now?

    Difference: 35,216 – 473 more than yesterday. (Average difference last 3 months: 40,401)

    Clicks from India – 9,5% today.

    • Pierrot

      The graph & the India’s 9.5% clicks tell a fascinating story of how the cherch wastes its *parishioners* money.
      Who except co$ and us cares about these trends?

      • http://frankdisalleisadummy.wordpress.com/ Get Chutney Love

        I noticed the click-farming when I was looking at the stats more than a year ago. I suggested to Johnny that he include that info when he reports the Alexia results, and the rest is history.

      • Free Minds, Free Hearts

        There is an interesting article on the cost of click farming in India. http://www.france24.com/en/20131002-indian-click-farms-generate-fake-facebook-likes-cash/

        2013-10-02

        Video: Politicians in India are often accused of artificially boosting the number of their online fans thanks to “click-farms,” companies that will generate fake Facebook likes for money. FRANCE 24’s journalists report on the new social media scam.

        Internet companies in New Delhi have found a new niche market in sellingFacebook likes. In an undercover investigation, FRANCE 24 journalists have found that these “click-farms” offer over 150,000 likes in two or three months for a fixed price.

        A basic package of 2,500 likes costs around 60 euros, generated by teams of low-paid workers armed with multiple fake Facebook profiles.

        In India, this social media scam is a growing trend. While FRANCE 24’s journalists created a simple fake Facebook page promoting French cheese in order to approach the click-farms, the companies are also used by politicians.

        Earlier this year, Rajasthan state’s chief minister was severely criticized for buying 60,000 ‘fake’ likes from Turkey.

        Such scandals have hurt the credibility of online likes, even as their number globally has grown to over 4 billion a day.

      Ha ha, Davey,
      Tony’s stats are orders of magnitude greater than Scientology dot org. I am using language you might understand so you don’t have to word-clear or clay model LOSING. In other words, the Bunker is straight up and vertical, while you are not.

      Of course, since you have so much interest coming from India, perhaps that org will be your next one.
      Or not.

      ML,
      The Bunker

    • Science Doc

      I have another possible explanation for why the click farming is generally on average a notch below 10%. Could it be that the people (bots?) that run search engines tolerate a small percentage of apparent click buying, but when it passes some threshold (10%maybe) there is some negative consequence. I don’t know but there has to some reason he only buys enough clicks for 9.5% of a sinking number.

      Some of the LA ones are only a few hours old. Akron and Cleveland have been cleared!

        Am I getting too excited or did the FBI just post in the Bunker? :)

          ??

          • NOLAGirl

            That post by “prim torturer” that you & I responded to, seemed….I don’t know, different. I ask because I’ve been hounding them on Twitter for months in the hopes someone there will pay attention to Tony’s stories.

            • Observer

              I realized what you meant and updated my response. It looks to me like they may have pasted that in from the FBI website. It sure would be nice if the FBI were here though.

            • NOLAGirl

              Keeping my fingers crossed and I will continue to bug the hell out of them. :)

              And if you are here FBI…Yes, we’re talking about you. Now, how about you holler at your friends in the IRS.

    What’s killing your brand… by a Scientologist! That is fucking funny.

    Oh, and look at Drew Johnston: Class VIII… but Golden Age of Tech Phase II Class IV auditor! Bwaaa ha ha! So that little midget Miscavige finally fucked with Ron’s Course, the Class VIII Course! No, Class VIII is no good anymore, Ron fucked up, and little puke David Miscavige, who got thrown off his Class IV internship because He hit His PC, has fixed Ron’s fuckups! Scientology is in a real sad state now – LRH was bad enough but DM is a disaster.

        When looking at the Valley org flyers for fundraising Sunday after Sunday, each more desperate than the last, I often wonder which will be first; Valley org’s completion, or the final death knell of the church?

      Snickersnort! In $cientology, there is no logic.

      You’re right as long as your donation is bigger than someone’s who disputes you.

      The amount of money raised for a project is some multiple of the amount needed.

    Unless you are some whale squandering an obscene amount of $$$$ or ££££ or whatever currency have you to acquire that purdy Platinum Plated Double Diamond Super Duper Tacky Tribute Trophy Extraordinaire de Luxe, if you rebrand yourself using phony-baloney LRH “tech” you might very well find yourself in this position:

    $cientology suffers from a con-fusion between eternal destiny and infernal density.

    If Ghenghis McSavage or Lie Run Hustle were coming down stairs, one would have to think
    “Con descending.”

    They promise OT powers: Mission Implausible

    $cientology geometry: the shortest distance between any two points is a dead end.

    His favourite Impressionist was Monet.
    His favourite impression was of a sage and a wise and benevolent man.
    Thousands loved it, to their cost.

    $cientology: a cult without culture – it doesn’t know the difference between Art Deco and Zydeco.

    ”FACT: the average number of humanitarians required to complete an Ideal org is 35”…… maybe that’s the number of whales in the area ready to be milked so they have to state that number to let them know they are counting on them. I can just hear the little dictator, ordering around the exact verbiage on that poster. it has to say FACT or else.
