Tom Cruise shows up with his Scientology ‘Freedom Medal of Valor’ in London

TomCruiseLondon

 
Well, so much for those idiotic tabloid reports about Tom Cruise losing his religion. The folks over at ESMB spotted a photograph posted Saturday on Instagram that shows Tom in London and wearing his Freedom Medal of Valor.

He’s posing with Ruddy Rodriguez, who was Miss Venezuela World in 1985, has worked in Venezualan telenovelas since then, and has been a Scientologist since 1997.

According to the caption on the photo, posted by Ruddy’s manager, he took the picture in London where there was a “spectacular celebration.”

This is the weekend of the annual celebrations of the International Association of Scientologists in East Grinstead, England. On Friday night the IAS had its gala. On Saturday it held its Patron’s Ball for the church’s big donors.

And it looks like Tom Cruise attended one or both of those celebrations.

But what’s really stunning to see in the photograph is not just that Tom is at a Scientology event, but that he’s wearing the medal (or a new version of it) that is such a legendary artifact of its own.

We’ve told the story many times here: What the public didn’t hear at the time was that between 1995 and 2000, Cruise got away from Scientology. After he and Nicole Kidman broke up at the end of 2000, Scientology leader David Miscavige then made it job one to get Cruise back into the fold. That job fell to Marty Rathbun, who audited Cruise and turned him into a zealous church member again.

To reward Tom for his renewed dedication, Miscavige had the medal made to give Tom at the IAS gala in October 2004 — ten years ago.

Normally, Miscavige hands out a few Freedom Medals for Scientologists who have been chosen for recognition. But Miscavige had a special, larger medal made for Tom and called it the Freedom Medal of Valor.

This is the first time we’ve seen a photo of him wearing it since — we can’t help wondering if there was a special 10-year celebration for Tom at one of the events this weekend.

(Additional: In 2012, Cruise was spotted at the IAS Patron’s Ball wearing the medal, according to a British press report at the time. So, most likely this photo, which was posted Saturday afternoon, showed Tom at his hotel about to go to that evening’s Patron’s Ball and Rodriguez’s manager corralled him for the photo before the drive over to East Grinstead. As far as we know this is still the first actual photograph of Tom made public showing him with the medal since he first received it ten years ago. And here’s what Roger Friedman had to say about it over at Showbiz 411: “Cruise is wearing the same Freedom Medal of Valor award he got 10 years ago right before he met Katie Holmes. This means that nothing that’s happened since then — ridicule over the couch jumping, Katie Holmes, losing his marriage and Suri, etc — has ever sunk in. Not even the Miscavige Clinic for the Criminally Insane on General Hospital.”)

 
Sunday Funnies: Scientology repurposes the ‘Think Different’ Apple ad

ThinkDifferentOver the past couple of years, whenever Scientology has put out another of its slick new TV ads, comparisons are invariably made to Apple television ads.

Scientology leader David Miscavige seems to dig the atmospherics in the Apple commercials. But at least Scientology’s have been somewhat original, if generally nonsensical.

But now, the folks in Detroit who are trying to raise money for a new “Ideal Org” have gone one step further and straight up ripped off the iconic 1997 “Think Different” Apple ad, in this case the version featuring the voice of Steve Jobs.

And the result is something to behold. They’ve simply inserted scenes from one of Scientology’s typically goofy fundraising parties into the ad, and some of the juxtapositions are amazing. Enjoy!

  • Natural Philosopher

    Hey Tony, love the Scottish wrong why – that they ‘can’t expand in their current building’. It isn’t exactly bursting at the seams with VGIs public! A more real why is that they are too concerned with filling the IAS coffers they have forgotten that their job is educating the public of Scotland in the tech of Dianetics and Scientology. But that would be too much to ask. It’s easier to empty the wallets of whales, and do a Scottish Whisky trail for donations, than do something worthwhile for the guy in front of you. This is so symptomatic of McCavige’s overall wrong why, that org’s are not expanding because their buildings are not ideal. If they are not expanding in the buildings they already have, what chance do they have of making good in a building that costs 10 times more to run? Duh!

    • Mark Foster

      The lack of expansion you refer to is rooted in the big lie/betrayal that scientology is, at its core. It was not created with an intention to help others. Jon Atack, among others, writes eloquently about this. Hell, take a few days and read Tony´s work from the Village Voice and this blog(even though his writing on the topic predated the VV era) and see for yourself, if you haven´t done so already. One of the best things you can do for the guy in front of you is to NOT subject him to scientology.That´s just my heart-felt opinion, based on my own experience.

  • Unfortunately, if it is Scottish, it still might be crap.

    Oh, brother! The sheer level of PATHETIC in these flyers is so abysmal it both pleases and in a very bizarre way, saddens me.

Schadenfreude be damned, this is pitiable. (On the other hand, the jackass leaders, whose evils are legion, earn not a shred of pity in my heart, and that includes the moron with the medal that looks like SHIT).

      Ah, Mycroft. I suppose we ought to resign ourselves to the fact that the cult is not only a complete rip-off in and of itself, but has pride in its’ ability to rip-off anything and anyone it wants. “Rip-off? I don’ see no steenking Rip-off!” – that’s the mantra. Bunch of dim bulbs.

    So in a blaze of glory
    He rode out of the west
    No one was ever certain
    What it was that he was sayin’
    But they loved it when he told them
    They were better than the rest

              Okay, I’m not trying to out anyone, but I very recently read a linkedin profile that mentioned a “Stand Tall Anti Drug” membership in high school. Some people are just *fated* to end up scientologists, it seems. (Unless this is an actual $CN group that I didn’t see in my cursory hearsaying – just a weird coincidence in the name, as far as I know.)

            • Lurkness

              You are correct. Today he doesn’t look like linkedin photo at all.

            • oh without a doubt! well, whatever info he might have—but probably more along the lines ‘look here’s a GOOGLE EMPLOYEE amongst us’….

            Hmmm, just like his master.

          • MaxSpaceman

            It may seem that way- at the same time, though, this is a very wealthy corporation whose sole controller. Dave. is doubling down. To dismantle Narconon could take eons – each state has their own regulations; but, even if the thing collapses, he’ll shift to another corporate name and have a ‘more expensive’ service in place, with luxury facilities, with an endless and growing client base desperate for ‘anything’ that will cure their loved ones of addiction. He could wind up making more money than ever out of it, especially moving off shore where regulations are often more lax than in the States. I hope this scenario isn’t so, but it seems like it is already happening.

            • Lurkness

              I mentioned awhile back that he might double down in a different way. Rather than abandon NarCONon he would go all in. Bring NarCONon fully in the religious fold and abandon the pretense that it is a secular program. He then will try to use the “religion” angle to defend against future attacks, much as they have gotten away with for too long when it comes to the evil and atrocious acts of the Chirch. It is also right out of Old Lubtard’s playbook as he did when the FDA and other government agencies started cracking down on the false medical claims.

    • L. Wrong Hubturd

      30 years of the IAS : Proudly funding “do more of the same, even if it is not working”

      Ideal Narconons? Sounds about right for Davey Poo. TC must have told Dave that there was no way he could send high profile Hollywood types to the dumps as they currently stand. Maybe TC is the ultimate SP and he’s getting Dave to spend all of the IAS money on these idiotic buildings. Wasn’t it TC who is quoted as telling DM that he need nicer Orgs to take people to? Wouldn’t it be just super if Big Being #3 was causing as much of the downfall as Big Being #2?

    These really are funnies. One item references “LRH, HCO PL 29 FEB 91” (L. Ron Hubbard, Hubbard Communications Office Policy Letter 29 February 1991). Hubbard died in 1986. This is a true example of “ghost writing” 🙂

    I lappreciated the Bunker’s recognition of the need for another “e” in the word “heros.” “Heroes” is what the Study Tech prodigies meant to write. Instead, what they have called themselves is a bunch of sandwiches. Since they consider themselves to be thetans in meat bodies, perhaps thinking of themselves as hero sandwiches is appropriate.

    On that note, and with the usual sprinkling of typos and grammatical errors in the publications above, the high (il)literacy of the Scientology Student Tech savants shines forth yet again. Thank goodness their IQ goes up a point per hour of auditing, even if that pulls gray matter away from learning English.

  • Pepper

    What does rereading KSW have to do with Ideal Orgs? Nothing. KSW is for the application of Scientology, not for buying buildings and padding David Miscavige’s real estate portfolio.

    • Mark Foster

      The idea, I think, is that re-reading KSW will make it clear that one needs to open one´s ass wider for the IAS buggery crew, as proof of one´s committment to ¨keeping scamatology working¨…An implant refresher, and so forth…

          Cripes, Miscavige is desperate to present a pretty picture for those whales. I’m going to investigate the Ojai, CA “sprawling Ideal Narconon training center”. Maybe Ryan Hamilton should run some “Have you or a loved one been deceived or harmed by Narconon” commercials in California.
          The other countries need to be warned.

          • Captain Howdy

            It seems as if Miscavige is doubling down on Narconon..which is the complete opposite of what everyone was predicting. Think of all the money he can scam the clams for this Ideal Narconon thing.

            • Lurkness

              I mentioned awhile back that he might more than double down in a different way. Rather than abandon NarCONon he would go all in. Bring NarCONon fully in the religious fold and abandon the pretense that it is a secular program. He then will try to use the “religion” angle to defend against future attacks, much as they have gotten away with for too long when it comes to the evil and atrocious acts of the Chirch. It is also right out of Old Lubtard’s playbook as he did when the FDA and other government agencies started cracking down on the false medical claims.

      So did Scientology appropriate the laurel wreath logo as its own from academia or from those cool Fred Perry shirts mods used to wear in the ’60s? Is there an official story about LRon’s unparalleled vision that led to the choice?

      • Techie

        The laurel wreath is an ancient symbol going back to Roman times. The star is supposed to represent the individual Sea Org member, surrounded by the wreath but not entirely enclosed by it, as though it were supporting him but not restricting his freedom. Here is what Ron said:

        SEA ORG SYMBOL, 1. the Sea Org symbol adopted and used as the symbol of a Galactic Confederacy far back in the history of this sector, derives much of its power and authority from that association. The laurel wreath represents victory. Used throughout the history of this planet to crown poets, artists, champions and conquerers, it not only represents the physical victory but the series of inner victories achieved by the individual, and the clarification and purification of his inner aims and purposes which lead to the outward victory. It is associated with the head, the traditional abode of the spirit. The five pointed star most commonly signifies rising up towards the point of origin; thus, it is a potent symbol of alignment to source. The laurel wreath and star, in combination, signify the victory of the spirit which is rising upward towards the point of origin or source. Its proper color is always gold. And note that the star is not trapped in its victory, but is in the open field towards the top of the wreath, allowing free exit, beyond its victory, and that is, in fact, in a field of blue, symbolizing truth. (FO 3350) [FO: Flag Order] 2. the star is the confederation and each one of those leaves is counted, it’s the number of stars. (6804SM-)[Taped lecture][4] — L Ron Hubbard

        http://carolineletkeman.org/propaganda/sea-org.htmlHe just got the star upside down and should have used an iron chain around it, not a wreath. You know that Ron, always joking around and pulling your leg.

        • Joe Hurtado

          I thought the laurel symbol was taken from the Greeks who valued scholarly/academic/learned accomplishments. You know, those which Scientology could only stumblebum to emulate, but yet claim to.

          Also because those Fred Perry shirts were so popular among youth at Scientology’s height in the ’60s and ’70s . Youth which I imagine was targeted for disaffection?

          I dunno.

            No, she has not. [F5] – (Double Disqus). PS: she has her contact lenses in. Scientology pays for those. Er- or not…

            • L. Wrong Hubturd

              What’s with the puffy cheeks too? Does she think she is impersonating a squirrel to get closer to Marty?

            • Frodis73

              Those eyes! This woman is not well in any sense of the word. Very sad.

            • Todd Tomorrow

              and a bitch to boot.

    • Eivol Ekdal

      Holy Shit!

    • Stanislav

      Mark Rathbun walks BEHIND those 3, THEY can argue that HE followed them. So what was he doing in LA? Does he still audit?

      • Bury_The_Nuts

        Yeah, cuz that video wouldn’t nullify that argument.
        YaWN!!!

      • Snake Plissken

        That’s like asking someone who just filmed a couple of heroin junkies that were lying in a puddle of their own vomit if he still shoots heroin.

      • Jimmy3

        Yes, what exactly was he doing in one of the largest metropolitan areas in the world? People only fly to LA to make movies or to audit Scientologists. And he doesn’t look like a movie star to me!

        • Free Minds, Free Hearts

          That’s right Jimmy. Yes it is totally odd that he was in LAX – it is such an out of the way place that no one ever goes there, obviously, he had some very strange business there. WHAT WAS HE DOING THERE?

          • Jimmy3

            The other day someone told me they had just gotten back from NYC and I was like, “What the hell? Are you some kind of spy or something?”

      • Captain Howdy

      • sookiesookie

      • Robert Eckert

        What’s it to you? What do you care whether Rathbun goes to LA or to Tierra del Fuego? You posted here hours before this story broke trying to convince us that Rathbun was a liar:

        http://tonyortega.org/2014/10/18/tom-cruise-shows-up-with-his-scientology-freedom-medal-of-valor-in-london/#comment-1643513801

        You got no response at the time because Rathbun was not the subject of the post and had not been mentioned by anybody. Whoever ordered you to come here and argue about Rathbun at that time was being very stupid.

        • L. Wrong Hubturd

          Good point Robert. They probably knew the video upload was on the way and thought that by some miracle of Xenu, they could sway our opinions of Marty. Derp!

        • Frodis73

          Good recall! I remember reading that earlier & thinking ‘wth’? I bet you’re right & he assumed the tape had already been leaked. Good job OSA & DM.

    • Sid

      And here we have Jenny Linson doing the George Baillie shuffle. I’m leaving. No I’m back. I’m leaving. No I’m back.

      • Ruby

        I know. That was hysterical, especially for someone who thinks he is nothing, yet can’t keep away.

    • Jimmy3

      Nobody even noticed you’re gone! You’re nothing! …Just thought we’d stalk you and tell you that. That we didn’t notice you had even left. So we’re here at this airport surrounding you to tell you that. That we don’t care about you.

      • Bury_The_Nuts

        I was thinking the same thing.
        You are nothing!
        That is why we are here telling you this???….um…yeah.
        These fuckers will NEVER get it.

        Edit: I guess someone needs to wordclear: Indifference.

        • L. Wrong Hubturd

          Do I look brainwashed to you? Why yes you do, thanks for asking. Those folks right there are scarier than the creepiest haunted house.

        • Snake Plissken

          “You are nothing!” I’m going to try my hardest to make you believe that my entire life does not revolves around the cult’s manufactured enemies, and I’m going to pretend that spending the next 6 months because I failed to convince you … does not bother me either. In fact, that is exactly why I’m wasting my entire day filming you at an airport … because you are nothing

      • Free Minds, Free Hearts

        And we figured we would hire 22 lawyers to tell the court we didn’t even notice you had left…

      • Lurkness

        One of your best J3!

    • Frodis73

      Wow. Just wow. They all look fearful behind the facade…it’s in the eyes man. That Jenny chick is creepy, but I feel sorry for them in a way. They are so totally brainwashed & don’t even know it. Cracks me up that they went out of their way to stalk Marty & tell him he’s nothing. Lol, then why do you care? Sci logic strikes again.
      They all look like they could use a really good meal & 3 days sleep. This really is shocking. Hey, why were they stuck in LA & not in the UK? I wonder what DM’s point was to drag them out, dress them up & do this for. So confused. The more I try to understand scientology & scientologists, the more freaking confused I get.

      • Snake Plissken

        It’s textbook Scientology, you can go back all the way to the 1990s and find videos of them working this same old worn out shtick on critics with zero success. Here it is 20 years later and they still haven’t figured out that it has no effect on someone who understands Scientology, and only works on those stupid enough to still be practicing Scientology.

      • Jimmy3

        That was dressed up? Is there an HCO PL on combing hair? She looks like she’s out-hairbrush.

        • Frodis73

          Well, coming from whatever rags they had on in the hole, I’m sure that’s dressed up for them. Agree about her hair…her eyes though man. Lights on, nobody home.

          • Jimmy3

            To borrow a line from Espiando, they would have charged her for those bags.

      • Snake Plissken

        That was a Scientology Sunday Service … so they took off their fake navy costumes and got dressed up for the occasion.

    • L. Wrong Hubturd

      He infuriates me, but I still feel bad for him and his family.

    • Sandy

      I do so wish I could post over there. I would tell Marty that I am so sorry for all his family’s problems. And I would bitch slap Tom D’s wife. Maybe more than once. And, I am a 6′ Scandinavian-American who can have an attitude towards mean women.

    • Frodis73

      Oh, and another thing. What in Xenu’s name is Wee Dave think he’s doing?? He had to know this would end up on the net…right? Dave-I know your goons print this stuff out for you….are you smoking crack? WTF are you thinking? I hope this went straight to Marty’s lawyer. SMH.

      • Snake Plissken

        Scientologists are complete train wrecks when it comes to just about everything, but when it comes to shooting one’s self in the foot, there are none better. You can hand them an unloaded gun and they will find a way to blast a hole right through one of their toes. When you’re using Hubbard as your compass, foot bullets are unavoidable.

        • Frodis73

          Lol. Good one & very true.

      • Captain Howdy

        They had suitcases to cover their asses so they could claim they just happened to bump into him.

        • sookiesookie

          I wondered about that. This sounds naive to me even as I ask it: is there a chance that they did just randomly run into him in the airport? I only watched once, but I don’t remember any of them having a camera, and they usually have at least one designated video person, don’t they? And, why *weren’t* they in England?

          So, they could have been there on orders, which is just dumb (considering lawsuit), but very believable. Or, it could have been accidental, and they just thought, “hey, there’s squirrel #1, let’s confront him and hope that impresses COB?”

          • L. Wrong Hubturd

            Camera tech in full effect. They knew he was there and they ambushed him.

            • sookiesookie

              Just watched again; I think I was so hypnotized by Lady Bags-A-Plenty that I missed it earlier. Ambush sounds right.

          • Frodis73

            Last I head some of them were in the Hole, so no way was it random imo. Nothing is random when it comes to Marty.

            • sookiesookie

              “Nothing is random when it comes to Marty.”

              You’re right. That makes sense.

          • Captain Howdy

            They had a video camera.

        • Todd Tomorrow

          They all seem to be past security,so I think it was a chance encounter. They’d send their PI thugs to do their dirty work. How long has, Yager been out of the whole. Looks dead!

          • Bavarian Rage

            NOT a coincidence. No one runs into their arch nemesis by chance at LAX. This has the stamp of Scn TRs, squirrel-tech, and confrontation Tommy-style all over it. A very generic, uncreative fair game encounter.

      • Barbara Angel

        Naaah no need for crack, he can scream, threaten, yell, kick and break things without the use of crack, but I do wonder about ‘Roid Rage’? He certainly does fit the profile of someone on Steroids, his rage and actions of dragging down someone taller and stronger than him, to physically assault them, is consistent with ‘Roid Rage’ they feel invincible with that stuff in high doses.

    • Bob

      Sookiesookie, Thanks for posting. Wow!

    • Missionary Kid

      If “nobody cares,” then why are they spending so much time berating him? They obviously care what he does.

      • sookiesookie

        Like the forceful tone of her voice will magically make him unable to see how many hits he gets on his own website? He’ll be incapable of hearsaying himself to see how many websites his interviews are on? The delusion is overwhelming.

        • Missionary Kid

          AMEN! Especially since the passengers on the Titanic have started for the lifeboats, and they’re still on deck, convinced the ship won’t sink.

    • pronoia

      They said one thing that made complete sense. Marty is embarrassing them. Said differently, the truth is embarrassing. Beyond that they couldn’t think of a single thing to say. Haha.

      Glad Marty kept his mouth shut and gave them space to rave like the lunatics they actually are.

      • sookiesookie

        Just like hub, always slipping that one tiny hint of truth inside their lie-casserole.

        • pronoia

          I know, every time Jenny Inch-wife repeated that, I was like “ya think?” No shit sherlock, he is definitely causing a shit-storm of embarrassment for you.

        Gee, thanks. I have standards, and she doesn’t meet them: she’s a $cientologist. 😛

          MK-You’re never going to hear the end of Miss Joy you know that now right? 😀

          • Missionary Kid

            I’d date a hooker before a $cientologist. I’ve got standards.

        • Missionary Kid

          To add, I’d rather she was a hooker than a $cientologist.

          • L. Wrong Hubturd

            Way to bring it full circle. Golf clap for you sir.

            • Missionary Kid

              No, I don’t want the clap, either. 🙂

              Well played, MK. That was awesome.

              I just checked into the bunker. As i said before, it’s only words on a screen, but since I care about you guys, it’s like being ribbed by some good friends.

If any movies with him in it, John Revolting or Krusty are on TV I *can’t bear* to watch them anymore.
              Seriously, those three smug rich dumb turds really ‘revolt’ me.

            • Tracy Schmitz

              but don’t you know (sarcasm here) ole tommy boy doesn’t know ANYTHING BAD IS GOING ON! OR ACCORDING TO HIS LAWYER BERT FIELDS “mr.cruise knows of the allegations against mr.miscavige he doesn’t believe them”! so he allegedly knows of the abuse stories of miscavige and doesn’t believe them? what about the other crap that goes down in scientology doesn’t know of that or doesnt’ believe that either! scary if he lives in that much of a bubble! heck, that’s not a bubble, that’s a entire balloon!!!…

            • Barbara Angel

              Remember the TV show called “get smart”? Well one day tommy boy will claim it wasn’t his fault, he had all his meeting with mustravage in the ‘Cone of Silence’ and “missed it by that much”. Like Maxwell did when he was either too dumb to get the idea.

            • Vaquera

              Did anyone notice her selfie earrings? They were special for the occasion. Also, in case the mystery wasn’t revealed somewhere down thread, Miss Villa tells us what was in the little gift boxes found at each place setting…..chocolate. Big whoop. (refresh)

          • sookiesookie

            When I thought she was a hooker, I was all like “yay, go hooker! you rock!” Then, when I found out she was a scientologist, I was like “oh man, MK’s never gonna be interested now.”

            Honestly, MK, I too would take hanging out with a hooker over a scientologist any day. Unless they were a curious, on-the-fence type $CN.

            • Missionary Kid

              While I appreciate a sexy body, the thing that turns me on more is an intelligent mind. When I was younger, I went out with some really hot looking women. The ones that I kept dating were the ones who had something intelligent to say.

              I could never understand guys who would date or marry really dumb but beautiful women. I think that those guys want women they can manipulate and control.

              Someone that’s a clam or a Jesus freak would bore me to tears or bring me to a boil, as do women that have unreasoned political viewpoints or who aren’t willing to understand the importance of history.

          • Todd Tomorrow

            Hell, you could get the clam for under 50$ for a,” hole week”. And she’d have to clean your house to get those 100 hours in. Hookers can be trouble! Just gag the clam…

        Sigh…just another cute meatbody with a stupid thetan inside.

  • Bob

    Marty’s post and video show the robotic, futile, psychotic state that Davey Mishugana’s Cherch of Insane-otology is in. It’s almost too unbelievable to believe???

    Marc Yaeger is probably doing more amends for Captain Davey so he can get out of perpetual liability. Looks like he has been locked up for some time.

    If you have not see Marty’s post, it’s a must see. I hope it goes viral.

    This is a sitcom: Those zany Scientologists are at it again. Clowning around and making funny with the resident bad guy Marty (evil incarnate) Rathbun. Tune in next week when Davey SwindleSavage takes a swing at Marty and misses and slams his hand into the wall and takes the MEST universe to court for breaking the tiny emperors hand.

    Just,when you think its safe are to go back into the water!

    • Missionary Kid

      Thanks.
      The difference between those bozos and the Silent Hill protestors is that with Co$, it’s all personal, no real ideas or joy in their harassment.

      The Silent Hill protestors don’t attack people personally, but the actions of the so-called {{church}}.

    • I like how the Shelia has to repeatedly go out of her way to say that Marty is nothing and has no effect.
      Whats that saying “The lady doth protest too much”?
      The huge bags under her eyes could fit their luggage in them.They all look like shit -It doesn’t look like being a superior being is good for your health.

      • Missionary Kid

        Exactly. “The lady doth protest too much.”

        • Clearly whatever he is currently doing to them is really getting up the Dwarf Master’s arse.
          Keep it up Marty.
          If these people are Superior beings, why don’t they see the effect of their pitiful actions is opposite to what they want?

          • Missionary Kid

            I’m glad that they did what they did in a public place. What I believe would have been the icing on the cake would be for Marty to turn to the people watching and say, “Those are $cientologists. That’s what they do to people if they leave.”

            I’m going to post that at the new Bunker forum.

            • Bavarian Rage

              Exactly!!!

            • Barbara Angel

              Loved the way he kept saying politely: “can you move on please” hahahaha. She tried to, but couldn’t find an answer or suitable reply to such a polite request. co$bots are taught to use anger or bullying to intimidate, it didn’t work and she would’ve stayed ‘enturbulated’ all day over losing that one. Hahahahaha your tech didn’t work lady because you’ve only been taught to use plain nasty verbal vomit.

        • Lurkness

          Trying to repeatedly to get her TR/Bullbaiting right. flunk.

      • Barbara Angel

        Interesting how she kept coming back and back to repeat her attempt at co$ bullying. Poor women…. she thinks she’s doing something useful for mankind. One day she will wake up, realise the crock of crap that co$ is and blow. She’ll remember or *see herself on You.tube* in this little snap shot of $camology’s attempted bully actions, towards anyone who was smart enough to flee and Cringe and cringe. At least we Know Marty will receive an apology from her one day.
        Blame the Kool-aid dear and all will be forgiven, unlike co$… “we don’t shoot the wounded”.

      • Bob

        When people do this kind of dirty work they are usually in trouble already.

    • Bavarian Rage

      How stunned would a casual observer, with no schooling in the darkest side of Scn be, to witness such CHILDISH behaviour from grown adults. I hope this weirdness had some effect on passerbys.

      • Bob

        It’s actually beyond belief for most people. They are used to it on a reality show though.

    • Sir_Real

      Oh boy! What a weekend!!

  • I’ve been reading “The Funnies” for a while now and I noticed a pattern. So how long has it been that status not level is important. More and more staus achievements are presented in these fl any upper level or OT acomplishments. What kind of excuses are they telluing their members or maybe the members don’t notice?? As a never-in” just courious.

  • xenu1979

    Hi Tony, this is my very first comment on your blog but probably not the last! I’ve been reading and enjoying this blog over the past few months (mostly cuz for some reason ex-Scientology executives keep fleeing to my home state of Texas and popping up in the local press). Well that and Katie Holmes’ “Not Without My Daughter” escape, err… divorce from Tom Cruise was sooooooo wtf.

    I actually believe the rumors may be true about TC reconsidering this dedication to Scientology, or questioning it, but I think if Tom leaves it will probably be a process that takes years because he is in so deep at this point. His mother and sisters are in, and he has been such a public member of the church for so long, that I think it would be a very gradual process. One way to gauge how committed he still is, perhaps wouldn’t be pics of him wearing his medal at the celebrity Scientology ball, but rather looking at how much contact he’s having with his daughter and Holmes, whether he continues to employ Scientologists throughout his staff, homes, etc… that would be interesting to find out.

    • Tracy Schmitz

      yeah, scary that his moher and his sisters are in this as well? what do they get out of it? they don’t know anything bad is going on either? perhaps it’s transference of butt kissing 24/7 given to tom and they get it too?…speaking of signs of him eventually leaving and quitting, when was the last time he EVEN SAW HIS DAUGHTER?! the idea that he has ALL SCIENTOLOGISTS IN HIS HOUSEHOLD (who by the way snitch on him without his knowledge? or is he okay with it has nothing to hide? in itself insane! how in the world could ANYONE MUCH LESS A MAN WHOSE HAS OR SHOULD HAVE EVERYTHING and be emboldened by his success allow anything and anyone to RULE OVER HIS LIFE IN EVERY ASPECT? i think the only persons in his professional or personally life that is NOT a scientologist is his lawyer….

      not sure about his new spokeswoman or his main bodyguard you see at every appearance and premiere he does out in public..course he has friends in “the biz” who are not scientologists but are they truly FRIENDS? or friendly business work with acquaintances? i mean the man has gone on record saying his best friends are his family (scientologists) and the leader of this cult is his best friend (and best man at his last 2 weddings!) miscavige! (that’s nutty too, who makes their “religious/spiritual/faith” leader their best friend and what leader of said “religion” would EVEN HAVE A BEST FRIEND IN THE FIRST PLACE? doesn’t this cross ethical, moral, etcetera lines?….

      they problem with that is that if if cruise waits any longer his reputation will be even more in tatters… by the time he leaves IF HE EVER LEAVES (one wonders just what will it take? if he hasn’t left by now? i mean even if only 10% of the stories were true, he should have left YEARS AGO!) the public will either NOT CARE or FOREVER think he was stupid, gullible, a weirdo, you name it for being in there as long as he was! (let’s say if he stays and leaves in 2016,17,18, etcetera).. while he has been utterly immersed for decades now in this cult (even early interviews when he first was in it and he was being interviewed it was called a cult to seemingly no care of cruise, which is again so odd, wouldn’t you defend it? wouldn’t you want to know why others are calling it that? wouldn’t you explain how it isn’t? etcetera) he did leave it for a time when was with kidman..but so darn pathetic that it would take cruise, someone who has or should have ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING AND EMBOLDENED BY HIS SUCCESS and now at 52 years old a process of YEARS to get out? i mean what he couldn’t just get up one day and have a epiphany and think “gee, i’m tom cruise! i have a family! i have friends! i’m rich and succcessful, worldwide fame and a career doing something i love! i’m a good person, i can help others and i DON’T NEED ANY ORGANIZATION TO DO SO EITHER!….. all of this and it would take years? to process and get out of his “religion”??.. that right there tells you he has been brainwashed!…..

      someday he’ll wake up or grow up! but as the clock has been ticking for years and years now, perhaps it will take SOMETHING ABSOLUTELY MONUMENTALLLY BAD TO HAPPEN TO HIM UNFORTUNATELY FOR HIM TO HAVE A CLUE AND LEAVE! if his 3rd divorce and not seeing his daughter whenever he wants isn’t enough, then i don’t know what is!…i DO BLAME THOUGH, THOSE WHO WILL WORK WITH HIM PROFESSIONALLY WHO EITHER ARE COWARDS OR DON’T CARE ABOUT HIM ENOUGH who never ever ever bring it up and try to get thru to him! i’m talking directors, co-stars, agents, etcetera whoever who if they cared about him as a person would sit down with him and tell him “look this is what scientology is about for the non stars and this is what has been going on for decades and look at the ex-members and books written and documentaries and so on that has been going on, look this is what the public thinks about you and your “religion” regardless if you think that they are ignorant or don’t know what they are talking about! guess though all these personal and professional contacts are either worried he would drop them as a friend, blackball them in the industry, or they themselves don’t know or care to know what scientology is really all about or they themselves have messed up lives and practices that they are the last persons to help cruise?!…

    The Valley Ideal Org will never be completed. How much money have they raised over the years?
