Las Vegas attorney files 27th suit against Scientology rehab, Michigan attorney files 2nd

Eddie_GeorgeLas Vegas attorney Ryan Hamilton has filed his 27th lawsuit against Scientology’s drug rehab network, Narconon, and Jeffrey P. Ray, an attorney in Michigan, has added two of his own in just a week’s time.

Endorsed by Scientology’s most well-known celebrities, such as Tom Cruise and Kirstie Alley, Narconon was for many years one of the organization’s most reliable money-makers. But recent patient deaths, negative press attention, and lawsuits around the country have turned Narconon into one of Scientology’s biggest headaches.

Unprotected by the religious cloaking that has proved so effective for Scientology itself, Narconon is vulnerable because it advertises one thing (individualized drug counseling with medical professionals and sky-high success rates) and delivers quite another (Scientology training with no medical personnel on hand and no proof of high success rates).

That’s opened the door for Ryan Hamilton, who began filing lawsuits against Narconon facilities in Nevada, California, and Colorado a year ago. Recently, he branched out to Florida. And now, he’s filed another lawsuit, and it’s in a new location: He’s suing a facility in Louisiana, the New Life Retreat in Denham Springs, with the help of local attorney Patrick W. Pendley.

Their client, Jeannette McHenry of Washington State, was looking for a rehab program for her son Alexander last February when she found a website that advertised an 800 number. When she called it she spoke to a person who put her in touch with a man named Jeff Gordon representing New Life Retreat.

She got the usual Narconon pitch: Gordon claimed the program had a 76-percent success rate, that her son would get addiction counseling, and that the facility’s sauna program was scientific and would eliminate her son’s drug cravings by detoxifying.

Jeannette paid $27,000 up front for her son to enter the program, borrowing money from family and from a bank.

And then, like others who enter the program, Alexander found out that instead of drug counseling he would be getting Scientology training.

As in his other lawsuits, Hamilton brings in detailed descriptions of what he’s found in other legal cases against Narconon — admissions that its processes aren’t as effective as they claim, for example.

No one at NLR ever spoke to Plaintiff’s son about the specifics of his life or substance abuse issues. Each patient at NLR received the exact same “treatment” regardless of the drug the person abused and the etiology and the severity of the patient’s addiction. At NLR, Plaintiff’s son did not receive any of the treatment Plaintiff had been promised and for which Plaintiff paid a ssubstantial sum of money. Instead, he received only Scientology indoctrination and dangerous Scientology rituals.

Meanwhile, attorney Jeff Ray has filed two lawsuits against Narconon Freedom Center in Albion, Michigan — the most recent just yesterday.

In that lawsuit, Joshua Currey of West Virginia alleges that on October 3, 2011, he found Narconon Freedom Center’s website, which claimed a success rate of 70 percent and described its sauna program. Currey called the facility and spoke to Ryan Daniels, telling him that he wanted his health insurance to pay for the program.

Currey alleges that he was told he’d need to pay $15,000 up front, and that the program would get pre-authorization from his insurance plan to cover the program. While he was “detoxing,” however, Currey suffered from a kidney stone. The center still wanted his up-front payment of $15,000 but Currey objected, saying that pre-authorization from his insurance program still hadn’t been obtained.

In great pain from the kidney stone and pressured to sign credit card authorization forms, Currey relented, and the center charged the $15,000 to credit cards the facility had obtained for him.

Then, his insurance denied coverage because he hadn’t gotten the pre-authorization he’d been asking the rehab center to obtain.

“Plaintiff has been unable to make the payments on the credit cards NFC obtained for him. Plaintiffs credit score has dropped over 200 points,” the suit alleges.

And, like other Narconon patients, Currey learned that instead of drug counseling, he’d be receiving Scientology training.

The lawsuit contains much of the same material about Narconon’s connection to Scientology that we’ve seen in Ryan Hamilton’s suits. Just as Narconon International makes sure all of is rehab facilities follow L. Ron Hubbard’s “technology” to the letter, so lawsuits against Narconon centers can easily be standardized as well. And the reason behind it is simply that Narconon doesn’t deliver what it promises.

No one at NFC ever spoke to Plaintiff about the specifics of his life or his problems with addiction. Instead, NFC purported to treat Plaintiff with the standardized Narconon program. Plaintiff left NFC within a short period of time because the “treatment” he was being provided did not appear safe and bore no resemblance to what he had been promised. At NFC, Plaintiff did not receive any of the treatment he had been promised and for which Plaintiff paid a substantial sum of money. Instead, Plaintiff received only Scientology indoctrination.

Just a week before, Jeff Ray filed another lawsuit against the Albion facility on behalf of a young woman, Lauren Prevec, who makes similar allegations about what she was promised at Narconon Freedom Center and then experienced during her 2012 stay there.

But Prevec also alleges that her “detox” to start the program deprived her of the anti-depressant medicine she was prescribed. (Scientology has a virulent hatred of psychiatry and any drugs associated with it.)

Narconon makes promises about providing a safe, drug-free environment. But like we’ve seen in other lawsuits, Prevec found a very different reality at NFC: “During Lauren’s time at NFC she observed NFC staff members engage in romantic relationships with patients. During Lauren’s time at NFC drugs were regularly brought into the facility.”

Like the others, Lauren is suing because ultimately she didn’t get what she’d paid for.

On or about July 3, 2012, Plaintiff was suspended from NFC because she tested positive for marijuana. Plaintiff did not return to the facility because the treatment at NFC bore no resemblance to what Plaintiffs had been promised. At NFC, Lauren did not receive any of the treatment Plaintiffs had been promised and for which Plaintiffs paid a substantial sum of money. Instead, Lauren received only Scientology indoctrination.

Before Jeff Ray filed these two lawsuits, we had previously reported on another case he’d handled, which also involved Narconon Freedom Center. It involved a man named Richard Teague, who was seriously wounded at the facility, and who talked to us after his lawsuit was settled.

Now, Ray is taking a page from Hamilton and he’s rapidly filed two lawsuits which use much of the same evidence that was first dug up by yet another attorney, Jeff Harris in Georgia. And there’s another firm in Illinois which has filed three suits against Narconon centers there on much the same model.

We sense a trend.

Oklahoma hits back at Kim Poff and Michael DeLong

We’ve been following the explosive allegations made by two former Oklahoma state employees who say they were fired because they found wrongdoing at Scientology’s flagship drug rehab facility, Narconon Arrowhead, and recommended that it be shut down, but their superiors buried the report because they were afraid of taking on the church.

Now, the state has filed motions to dismiss in both lawsuits. The motions call Poff and DeLong’s allegations “baseless,” and assert that even if they had found wrongdoing at Narconon Arrowhead, the department would still have discretion what to do about it and might not decide to revoke Narconon Arrowhead’s license.

We’ll be interested in what the Bunker’s readers in the legal field will have to say about the case law that’s cited in the motions. Give us your analysis!

One of our tipsters pointed out that there’s a bizarre story today at the website of the East Grinstead Courier. East Grinstead, England is the home to Scientology UK headquarters and L. Ron Hubbard’s former estate, Saint Hill Manor. The local town has always had an uneasy relationship with the church, and back in the late 1960s it practically broke out in a local war. But the Courier has posted a really strange item. Titled “What is Scientology and what do Scientologists believe?” the unbylined story reads like pure Scientology marketing pablum. However, it’s interspersed with embedded videos which aren’t flattering to Scientology at all — including the Forrest Ackerman interview we posted recently. What gives?

      You are a true master of your craft. I wish we were all filthy rich here in the Bunker. I’m pretty sure we’d all chip in to place a call to USA Advertising V.P.: “We have more money than Dave, and we have an ad for you too”.

      I’m calling meme: “The Scam of Scientology – Your Cash Is Ours”

      • Mark

        Thanks, THDNE 🙂 Dunno about mastering a craft—did it in a tearing hurry because I had something in the oven downstairs and didn’t want it to burn!

        • TheHoleDoesNotExist

          Okay, now you’re just bragging!

          In a perfect world, all scumbags who lure via advertising of any sort would have to include a trustworthiness label. Catergories for Advertisers’ trust level:

          1 – As trusty as mom.
          2 – Only if you hate your mom.
          3 – This IS your mom.
          4 – Family motto: “Your Cash is Ours”

            Snortle! 🙂

        Imagine an ad from the Bunker on the next page after the cult’s ad. It could be one of the most enturbulating things toward Sprout-in-Charge ever.

    • PERFECTO!

    What’s this Tampa mo deli deal? I love good deli.

    • TheHoleDoesNotExist

      Hah, I was just trying to deciper myself. I thought it read deli deal too! It’s a hidden message lure – you know how hungry staff are these days. Mo deli!

      So Jessica, Ability Release. That’s what they’re calling it these days?

      Ability Release – ability gained: “Moving out of fixed conditiions into ability to do new things”. Oh really?

      Can you do something new like say No? Read the Bunker? Hug an SP? Refuse to see the reg? Refuse a sec check? Refuse to write a success story? How about think for yourself? I saw that one in an ad recently. Show us your stuff, Jess! I think ability release is: Released from ability to think for yourself.

      http://www.bible.ca/scientology-price-list.htm

      • Sherbet

        The only thing better than a deal on deli is mo’ deli deals. The mo’ the better. Jessica doesn’t look like a counter girl, though. So what did she learn? Typical sci-speak gibberish. You said it, TH. Poor girl has a fake certificate with some stooooopid abilities. That and $10 will get her a corned beef and Swiss on an onion roll at her local deli.

    • NOLAGirl

      Mmmmm, I’d love some good pastrami right now, with some spicy mustard…Who is making a deli run? 🙂

      • Sherbet

        I’m watching my cholesterol…go up.

        • Ardent

          I just found out the pill I was taking for BP was actually a Cholesterol drug. Oops! I have a call in to my GP…

      • TheHoleDoesNotExist

        Stop, please stop. I just had my first try at quinoa spaghetti. It’s a lot like scientology, looks inviting but actually just a cardboard fake of the real thing. And rubbery too!

        • NOLAGirl

          Awww THDNE…are you going to splurge at all this weekend? It’s Sundance Baby!!! 🙂

          • TheHoleDoesNotExist

            I splurged over the holidays. When you’re on 850 calories a day, flour and cheese just don’t exist.

            • i’ve never paid attention to calories but 850?! that seems rather low!! can you have spaghetti squash? i’ve never put sauce on it, but i like it with butter and parmesan and some garlic…..

            • TheHoleDoesNotExist

              Root veggies have a lot of sugar in them, so I can have some, but I have to weight it carefully. What’s butter? I love vegetables, than Xenu.

            • at least root veggies have natural sugars in ’em….butter is a good friend of mine 😉 never had thyroid issues but i’ve known others with them and i’m sorry you’re going through that….i can empathize with back issues since i have my own now—due to my old lady bones….pool exercising would be really good!

              just take things day by day, don’t get discouraged—though i know that’s easier said than done!! every one has ‘good’ and bad days and if you slip up and have something you shouldn’t, consider it a treat for being a great person and try to fully comply the next day! 🙂

            • Juicer77

              Holy moly! That’s low. The best I could do was 1200 a day and that was rough. Make sure you’re getting your nutrients 🙂 I use my mandolin slicer to make zucchini “spaghetti” and top with meat sauce. Substitute half of the meat with mushrooms. Nom nom nom.

            • TheHoleDoesNotExist

              Will try. I found a recipe for Alfredo sauce that must have been dreamt up in the Twilight Zone, or a model’s chat room. It has no flour and no cream and tastes like Alfredo sauce! I have to lowball meat, chicken and seafood now too. I’m ready for astronaut food, I tell ‘ya. I’ll try the zucchini next.

            • Ardent

              That recipe for Alfredo is something I would avoid at all costs, Hole. It will doubtless taste like bile from an angry weasel.

            • TheHoleDoesNotExist

              Oh, tried and repeated. It’s awesome. The secrets is leeks, a ton of leeks cooked down with garlic and celery and olive oil and run through a blender – with a little parmesan,

            • NOLAGirl

              No. I don’t want you to have to eat that. LOL 🙂 Please tell me you’re at least allowed a cocktail this weekend?

      • oh i haven’t had pastrami in years but that sounds good—with spicy mustard on a good thick roll!! nom nom nom….

      • Sejanus

        You have just described what I ate on rye and swiss cheese, nice and hot….with a nice big kosher pickle to nosh no less than three hours ago..yummmy

    • BFM

      Thousands… same sort of number Davey used to pressure the IRS.

    • ze moo

      The NarCONon web site doesn’t list all the ‘associated’ rehabs. Per Wickstrom’s Michigan ones (2 or 3) are not listed there, also missing are the Florida and Louisiana ones. The Narc site also lists a location in the UK, but that site has been an outpatient type of rehab for some time.

      Those who hold NarCONon franchises have taken to renaming them and keeping the $cientology connection off advertising. You won’t get Lroned until you show up and pay up.

  • I just, for the first time, heard about a cult called Colognia Dignidad. It sounds so similar to Scientology.

    • Artoo45

      Oh, they’re creepy alright. I always make my first morning stop at cultnews.net to see what’s going on in the world of crazy. You learn that Scientology keeps very bad company.

    • Captain Howdy

      One of my favs! The ultimate creepy neo-nazi “Boys From Brazil” cult.

      • I had never heard of them before! I recently met someone who said his brother lost his mind when he spent some time in Scientology. His brother is now a vagrant out here in the San Gabriel Valley.

        • Ardent

          Man that is so sad.

          • My friend is the one that showed me the film. Yeah it’s super sad dude. I’m thinking the guy was already schizophrenic because I think it begins to show at around age 18 which is when he got involved with Scientology. Apparently what he learned from Scientology is that he could go up the levels and become a god. I knew right away. If only I had known him a few years ago.

        • Captain Howdy

          Joseph Mengele was hiding out with them for a while. General Pinochet use to farm out the especially heavy torture jobs to these guys. Lots of bodies buried out there.

    • 0tessa

      Cultleaders: paranoia and madness. Always.
      How much longer is the US government continue to turn a blind eye to Miscavige?

      • Ardent

        I know. It drives me around the bend!

    • Ardent

      OK, by 2:51 into this film, the cult of Scientology is ABSOLUTELY NAILED DOWN! Shiver me timbers, mateys!

      • Great focus on confession and criticism. There’s a whole bit at 46:30 that you should watch. It is almost like it is exactly describing Scientology.

        • Ardent

          Thanks Derek. This film is a great find.

        • 0tessa

          Indeed. The similarities with the cult of Scientology are shocking.
          I wonder whether Miscavige and his ‘finger snap people’ will end up in the same end scenario as so many cultleaders before them.

    • Jimmy3

      Time was cults were creative and original. These young cultists today are just lazy, that’s what it is. They should be focusing on their culting, but all they wanna do is twerkity twerk on the tweetergrams or whatever. For shame.

      • Todd Tomorrow

        They need more coke like in the old days. Or in the case of, Hettero, Ted Haddert some meth and a mouthful of hustler penis.

        • Hingle McCringleberry

          And the phrase ‘mouthful of hustler penis’ has now entered by vernacular right next to the delightfully evocative ‘bag of smashed assholes’ as in “Grant Cardone’s wife always looks like someone just handed her a bag of smashed assholes”. To W/C the new phrase, “COB always gets Lou the same thing for her birthday- a mouthful of hustler penis and a bag of meth in even numbered years”.

      • Stacy

        “twerkity twerk on the tweetergrams?” Lol, oh Jimmy, I just love your sense of humor. 🙂

    Ability release? Does this means she has achieved a state where she has forgotten how to tie her shoes?
    As for the Narconon suits…Bring ’em on! I do wonder where the FDA or whatever agency is supposed to have oversight regarding these facilities is, or what they’re doing? Asleep at he wheel?

    • she can ‘release the ability’ to give them more money? yeah, that doesn’t make any sense—like any of it does?

      I say Ability Release and it strikes me as …oh so now you have gone from competency to..well not so much.
      Uh good for you?….lol.

      She seems like a pretty girl with a whole life and world ahead of her….would be a shame to waste it in the bubble.

      • Ardent

        I agree, Sejanus. It is truly pitiable. Hopefully the cult will be destroyed before she wastes too much of her life.

    • L. Wrong Hubturd

      She could help me with my ability to release. 😉

        What an absurd notion in the first place. Cult, cult, cult….SCAM!

    Is it 2:00 pm yet? My stats are straight up and vertical this week. (1) I pray for my Sea Org family member every week, and three weeks in a row a fellow member of my church has come up to express concern; each time we talk a bit more about the cult, and he is getting quite alarmed. (2) I gave my music teacher Going Clear and also Jenna’s book for Christmas. He just finished Going Clear, was totally shocked, is looking forward to the movie, and last I saw him he was wandering off to look up the video of ambushing Marty at LAX. His last words just now were “Tony Ortega dot org?” One more for the rabbit hole. (3) In a back and both on Radar Online with one of the “all religions are bad” commenters, he agreed to look at Tony’s blog and also the book.

    • Tory Christman

      Yup..it’s 17 minutes past 2:00 and we’re good to go!! Excellent, Free Minds, FH–re he agreeing to read Tony’s book. Happy Thursday AFTER 2:00 🙂

      Finally he is free of his WQSB double hatted reg duties. No more basics to sell in the middle of the night, with seniors putting you on the clock and not allowing to leave until you sold x packs….

      You can see how happy he looks in Spain. I am so glad he is outta there. Denmark is one of the worst places (second to INT-Hemet) to be an SO member.

      • Juicer77

        Why is Denmark SO so awful compared to the others?

        • BFM

          Because its run by a deputy tyrant like Miscavige — W. Kotric. And DM is on the phone with him quite a lot, because when international stats needs to be polished up, Walter gets enormous heat and is run was run on an hourly basis (witnessed 1st hand). Walter has some sociopathic tendencies himself and doesn’t refrain from getting physical at times as well.

          CLO EU basically runs all of Europe and Russia and thus a large contributor to CO$ $$$, and DM has Walter there for a reason.

          I worked in the US (CMO Pac, HGB and CLO WUS) as well, but things were a little more relaxed there (at that time — maybe that has changed). But the atmosphere in CLO EU was and still is (reports from recent exes) mostly very dense. And then there is NEPI, also a hell hole to work in. High pressure on sales and people literally screaming at each other like ALL the time.

          But if anyone has other experiences, feel free to fill me in / correct me.

          • i-Betty

            That’s a fascinating and troubling insight. I’m so glad you and Philip are OUT of those dreadful places now. Freedom is sweet.

          • Anyone who hasn’t should run out and buy a copy of Pete Bonyai’s “Money, Power, Servitude: Adventures in the Wonderland of Scientology”, for instance at http://amzn.com/B00MPY40Y6 . Covers some of the Damnation Navy experience on the mainland (i.e. not at Saint Hill – if not a lot of the Copenhagen infestation).

            • BFM

              Very good book indeed. It gives the reader a good perspective on how common ground the abuses are. They are NOT just taking place in Hemet (or USA at large), Denmark is a place of plenty of those abuses.
              Thanks for bringing up that book of Peter.

            • Oh, yeah, the abuse is everywhere in the Damnation Navy. All the clams are “running Ron’s case,” and the SO is where Hubbard had an old man push peanuts around the splintery deck with his nose. Oh, how they laughed (well, Hubbard did)…

    2500 lawsuits against narCONon would be a good number. It’s like a diesel locomotive picking up speed, once in high gear, unstoppable. Hambo deserves recognition for his groundbreaking work.

  • Larry

    Off topic….but….:

    Word on the (psychics) street is the upcoming Scientology HBO documentary is (/was) the final straw for Tom Cruise ‘and’ Kirsti Alley. Tom and Kirsti are both blowing together and they are (/will be) making a big scene about it. On national television no less. Dateline has apparently already scored an exclusive interview with the pair. Ted Koppel is said to be hosting the interview, flippantly.

    Somehow David Miscavige got word of it and has (or had) ordered both Tom and Kirsti to the RPF, immediately. But apparently they both declined (or will decline), to little Davids horror.

    Meanwhile the psychics have already confirmed that Narconon was (or will be) sued out of existence in the USA by the spring of 2016.. Apparently some wog lawyer sued them 42 times and won every case. Another 57 lawyers then jumped into the fray and won another 57 cases in a row, forcing Scientology’s Narconon into the ‘non-existence’ level of the Scientology world, and into bankruptcy in the real world.

    On top of that the United States IRS has rescinded (or will be rescinding) the tax-exempt status of Scientology in June of 2016, pending an internal investigation into their finances and their conduct. Which investigation is expected to last years, if not decades.

    Finally, Mr. Miscavige was last seen violently weeping on the floor of the Scientology Freewinds ship (with an empty bottle of vodka firmly grasped in both hands).

      In further news, following Ryan Hamilton’s 47th lawsuit against Narconon, $cientology’s Narconon spokesliar, John Travolta, has vowed that he will round no turn unstoned to protect Narconon’s reputation. He said that he has had over 47 masseurs sign a petition already and swore that he would continue until he reached his target of 4,747.

      Most importantly, Judge Whittemore’s ruled that Mike Ellis’ inability to travel to Florida (where the Garcia case is pending before him) means that the arbitration system is a sham. This has opened up hundreds of requests for refunds, which cost the church almost a billion. Whittemore stated that “Scientology having only one arbiter, Mr. Ellis, available to hear complaints even though it has 22 million members would be like Florida
      having only one judge in the entire state to hear lawsuits. It is preposterous.”

  • BFM

    Anyone else noticed how the Scientology propaganda machine is using young and attractive people? Also their use of family pictures (together raising statuses etc — even baby’s and toddlers are not spared.) has increased significantly.

    While I was in, most hardcore public were middle aged and above. And from what I hear from UTR’s is, that it’s still very much the same scene. Davey must realize his hardcore flock is dying-out due to old age and desperately needs rejuvenation.

      • i-Betty

        It’s so completely bizarre and bi-polar that I wonder whether the EGC is struggling and knows that if it posts an article on scientology, no matter from which angle – and, let’s face it, this one came from every possible angle – it’s guaranteed click-bait.

            • I bumped into him walking on Piccadilly the day before he died, all I remember was how bright pink his face was and that he was out of breath and sweating. Ironically another famous British comedian (Frankie Howard) died on the same day and there was a quote from Benny Hill “sad, great comedian etc” that the papers actually got from his agent who had no idea that Benny had already died in his apartment…. A quote from beyond the grave so to speak.

          We + we at the Castle, from Kick-Ass Tiara to Foot-person, think the EGC article is very clever in that the $ci Party-line is reported and then “balanced” beyond the tipping point by the artfully selected counter videos!

      The East Grinstead Courier? What’s the readership?

      • i-Betty

        According to nasamedia, the combined readership figure as of May 2014 was 14,195 (circulation was 4946). I think ‘combined’ refers to figures for free and paid-for copies. I don’t know about the States but over here local newspapers are often distributed (circulated) for free to all local addresses with additional copies made available for purchase.

          Ah, yes – this article explains the readership/circulation discrepancy:

          Sept, 8 2014

          THE East Grinstead Courier has asked us to clarify circulation figures released last week by the Audit Bureau of Circulation.

          The changeover from part paid/part free saw a decline in circulation of 57.2 %, but the number of people now buying the paper has risen by an average 13.9% (510 copies) in the past year.

          Spokesman David Farbrother said the Redhill-based newspaper had decided to change its strategy and become purely a paid-for product….

        Hah! I remember this. My Dad still likes Benny Hill … his TV series when I was a kid used to crack my Dad up big time. That wasn’t an easy to do, make him laugh out loud. Now that he’s very elderly (but with all his marbles) he cracks so many jokes all the time and finds himself quite funny.

      Definitely more staff there and some faces I recognize as ex-so. But what is really striking is that Budapest Org used to be a very, very large org. Just before It went saint hill size it had over 100 staff alone. I count only 40 people on that group photo… and if you look at it closely some faces in the back seem a bit odd. Check the reflections in the mirror…. looks just odd (I am not an expert on shoops, maybe someone who is can check it out). But shooped or not, this is a pathetic number of people while once they really had hundreds of publics. 47 x expansion, hell yeah!

    A good reminder to all those students and staff still “held hostage by brain-washing” in $CoS (quoted from http://www.loohan.com/Scn.htm )

    “Dick Gregory did a radio show about Scientology years
    ago and explained that $cientology was a US Government black budget
    intelligence collection operation to capture the brightest and keep them
    busy so they wouldn’t cause problems for the Feds.”

    • Anonymous

      That’s crazy.

      However I personally sat in an audience several decades ago while Dick Gregory said aloud from the stage that as a “Breatharian” he had not eaten a single thing in more than a year and got 100% of his nutrition from breathing air.

      He was not kidding.

      But (again) he was (and is) crazy.

      • Benfranklin

        Did Dick Gregory live near the Garden of Eden? Certainly, not Los Angeles because there is way too much pollution in the air, there is no nutritious, gluten free, organic air to live on for a whole year.

    Been a while since I posted on this fine site. Down here in Georgia the clampire is working hard on its Idle Org. Money is being spent to bring the building back to code for occupancy. I will post pictures next time I drive by the place.

    As this thread concerns the VM,I heard several years ago a fun SO cine div kid named Beckett Wells was or is a VM. Wonder what became of him. Even in the SO cine div he had a great sense of humor. He had the drive to really make it in the motion picture and television industry.

    I wonder if his story has a happy ending?

    Earth’s religions are much like government, which literally means “mind control”
    Politicians lie to you and charge you taxes.
    Religious priests brainwash you and want your donations.
    2 different hands with different names dive deep into your $wallet to suck you dry

    From some offworld benigh people quoted from site below (use Ctrl + F to search for the word “religion”)
    http://semjase.net/semjeng8.html

    “In the past, there have been evil races causing religious wars and destabilization. This is coming to an end now and man must walk out of his delusion of religion and learn to be responsible for his own spiritual growth. This can only be done through awareness of the Laws of creation. There is no spiritual growth within the teachings of religion.”

    • i-Betty

      Might I introduce you to Chris Shelton, alxj? 🙂

      • alxj

        That is very kind of you i-Betty. Which Chris Shelton are you referring to? There is a ton of guys with this name on linkedln 🙂

        • Free Minds, Free Hearts

          alxj – Chris Shelton is at http://mncriticalthinking.com – he goes by “Critical Thinker at Large” and just posted an excellent short video on conspiracy theories. Quite relevant to your ideas.

          • alxj

            My take is to have ESP abilities for people globally the sooner the better so we can have knowledge on things beyond the regular 5 senses because operating on merely the 5 senses really is not enough. The more ESP abilities we can master, the more we know we have not been making the most of our lives for a very long time and it is time to change

          • alxj

            Chris Shelton put together some good info on his site but it still pales comparing with people with genuine ESP abilities, psychics ..etc (not necessarily OTs in the $CoS) because they can really manage a lot of things that mere talkers or thinkers can’t handle. Thanks for the info.

          • alxj

            Chris Shelton’s site is pretty much standard CIA mind control programming. If you work in an airfield and witness an UFO, your supervisors will silence you about the sightings or you lose your job. He will tell you UFO does not exist. It is not that UFOs do not exist, it is the fact that Earth technologies are not advanced enough to catch it. Just because we cannot prove it (because it flies away so quick) it does not mean that it does not exist. This is sour grapes (you can put “define sour grapes” on google) which means disparaging what one cannot obtain.

            I do not miss much if I do not pay attention to Chris’s site. He is an ex-SO member, a Clear at least but what he can come up with is merely on his issues on conspiracy theories. On the other hand, the ESP guy’s site, (his name is Dexter)

            http://loohan.com/blog-index.htm

            Dexter probably has accomplished way more than all other ex-Scn or ex-SO members combined. He is not that high up on the Bridge either. So all these grades and OT levels do not mean much other than what an individual can accomplish himself outside the Church regardless of Scientology teachings.

            http://loohan.com/Scn.htm

            If you read the link above, Scientology is run by CIA who are so much crime-ridden that you have to think what makes you think the $Church will deliver the whole Bridge so that people can eventually and easily check out the criminal activities of CIA and the government! It just does not make any sense that the $Church will deliver anything good to anyone.

            A sensible advice is to pull everyone (staff and students) out of the Church right now

            Which part do you find nonsense?

            • L. C. Spencer

              1. It was generalities. All of it. No specifics at all.

              2. It was not all true.

              3. It was not pertinent. You were changing the subject from the day’s topic, which is the fact that Narconon once again is being pursued legally over their widespread fraud.

              4. “From some offworld benigh people quoted from site below” — yeah, this is not English. It’s just a bunch of random words. No meaning inherent.

              5. Only religions have “laws of Creation.” Science doesn’t have such a concept. So which is it, you’re against religion or for it. Also, you’re concerned with people’s “spiritual growth,” which again, is the province of religion. You keep contradicting yourself.

              6. “If you have a religion, you are basically picking sides.” Random generalized opinion sentence with no basis in reality. Flunk.

              7. “it will wreak havoc if people are carelessly misled by undercover agents so that riots, chaos and war ensues.” Really? Conspiracy theory much? You think that having a religion will cause you to be susceptible to undercover agents which will lead to riots, chaos and war? Undercover agents? Really? Who is behind these agents?

              8. “There is also some info on the Bermuda Triangle on the same page for anyone interested” — Bermuda Triangle? Really? REALLY?

              Here is a datum: NO ONE is interested in the Bermuda Triangle. Get out of the 1970s, it’s a new millennium already. Time to clean out the coffee pot and make some from fresh.

              You posted this un-useful comment possibly out of ego, possibly to distract from the Narconon update, or even more possibly, to derail the conversation from the arrival of the HBO documentary on Scientology. It didn’t work. The film is playing at Sundance as we speak and it will soon be seen throughout the world. We here at the Bunker are celebrating the victory of truth over the massive suppression of humanity being put in by Scientology. I’m just replying to you out of concern for you.

              There are a lot of nice people here, and we have a nice time. Why not join us? It’s better out in the real world.

            • alxj

              First of all, thank you L.C. for your detailed points because you are one of the rare ones who have listed out in point forms so that I can reply to you point by point:

              1 . It was generalities. All of it. No specifics at all.

              alxj: How specific do you want it? It is already line by line, as quoted below:

              Earth’s religions are much like government, which literally means “mind control”
              Politicians lie to you and charge you taxes.
              Religious priests brainwash you and want your donations. …..etc

              2. It was not all true.

              alxj:You have to tell me which part that you find not true. Now you are not being specific

              3. It was not pertinent. You were changing the subject from the day’s topic, which is the fact that Narconon once again is being pursued legally over their widespread fraud.

              alxj: Actually Narconon went unsupervised though it should go supervised by a medical professional as stated in the package. Now if I say as quoted

              Politicians lie to you and charge you taxes.
              Religious priests brainwash you and want your donations. …..etc

              do you sense that I am conveying the message that both politics and churches lie just to get your money? Both politics and churches are really the same thing, lies and mind control

              4 “From some offworld benigh people quoted from site below” — yeah, this is not English. It’s just a bunch of random words and one group of letters that isn’t even a word.

              alxj: It is written in English and please tell me what word(s) you do not understand?

              5. Only religions have “laws of Creation.” Science doesn’t have such a concept. So which is it, you’re against religion or for it? Also, you’re concerned with people’s “spiritual growth,” which again, is the province of religion, not atheism. You keep contradicting yourself.

              alxj: religion and spiritual growth are not the same thing. The highest OT state is OT8 in the Church and Michael Chan (OT8) even went on a campiagn tour that claims clones will be made to take over the world. So is that what you call spiritual growth? It is just as big as a laughing stock as Tom Cruise and Xenu.

              Don’t worry about science on Earth, less is gained because they only focus on materialism mostly.

              It is not religious freedom that we need.

              What we need is freedom from religion i.e. no religion.

              If you look into other religions, not all the worshippers have ESP abilities so they can check things out using their ESP abilities of course.

              If they all have their ESP abilities, they are most likely not agreeing to have any religion because they can finally realize that a lot of things in their religious dogma are not necessarily true. But what holds true is that they want many people (forming a group as a religion) to contribute money (or even sacrifice …etc) so that they can fleece and collect huge sums of cash for purposes not necessarily for doing the greatest good for the greatest number of people.

              What Earth people need is that we can all obtain our native ESP abilities (not necessarily through Scientology of course) so that we can filter truths from lies and steer our lives in proper directions.

              No I don’t think I am contradicting myself

              6. “If you have a religion, you are basically picking sides.” Random generalized opinion sentence with no basis in reality. Flunk. Start again.

              alxj: If a society allows one religion, say religion 1, then some other people will say why can’t we have a religion, so they will want religion 2,….etc Then the secret agents can easily collect and fleece huge sums of cash in the name of donations or ceremony fees from their worshippers. It is a lot of hidden motives that religious people will not tell you. If you really want to know their motives, you need to use ESP abilities to find out, which is the subject that I have been getting across in a lot of my entries.

              For the sides picking, if some control freaks want to destroy a (few) nation(s), just start a few religions in nation(s), tell lies and brainwash the worshippers to believe in all those lies so they can use religious belief as a pretext to start (Holy) wars.

              Do you still want any religion?

              7. “it will wreak havoc if people are carelessly misled by undercover agents so that riots, chaos and war ensues.” Really? Conspiracy theory much? You think that having a religion will cause you to be susceptible to undercover agents which will lead to riots, chaos and war? Undercover agents? Really? Who is behind these undercover agents? SMERSH? The lizard people?

              alxj: The reason why the term conspiracy theory exists is that throughout decades, Earth eduction does not have teachings to achieve ESP abilities as part of their fundamental lessons so that all sorts of lies, scams, murders, cults, hidden motives religions, deceptions, wars ….etc can exist and persist.

              If we can all be taught to achieve our full spiritual potentials and abilities, we can see through the facades of the crooks and criminals so that we will not fall prey to them.

              For the lizard people, it is something that you can decipher when you get more and more of your native abilities back. It should be quite a good exercise for most people.

              8. “There is also some info on the Bermuda Triangle on the same page for anyone interested” — Bermuda Triangle? Really? REALLY?

              alxj: Just like the lizard people answer above, if you get more and more of your native abilities back, you will start see whether if fits the explanation. In the mean time, you can just bear that in mind. If interested you can do some research, if not, do your own thing.

              You posted this un-useful comment possibly out of ego, possibly to distract from the Narconon update, or even more possibly, to derail the conversation from the arrival of the HBO documentary on Scientology. It didn’t work. The film is playing at Sundance as we speak and it will soon be seen throughout the world. We here at the Bunker are celebrating the victory of truth over the massive suppression of humanity being put in by Scientology. I’m just replying to you out of concern for you. I’m
              heading back to the party now.

              alxj: I actually find it useful but it depends on how you read between the lines that matter. I accept that you call me doing this out of ego and I don’t really care as long as it is the right thing to do.

              It sounds very much out reality for most people but it is worth mentioning that the Pleiadians have no money system and no religion because they are aware that any of these 2 beasts can cause a great deal of unnecessary trouble just like what we can see now on the world today not necessarily just on Scientology.

              If you allow these 2 beasts, money system and religion to co-exist together, you are getting unlimited unnecessary perpetuated problems because to perpetuate the problems of religion, you just need to brainwash the church members for donating more money in exchange for more insane laughing stock like the OT9 Clones, then unsuspecting and without-ESP-abilities church members will pay for it.

              The donation fees will pay for the money-grabbing lawyers to battle the lawsuits. And quite surprisingly, the Church will win, not that I want the Church to win but because the judical system has no place for evidence based on findings using ESP or anything like that. That sadly should change.

              If you can read between the lines and I hope you do, the day the Church will end is the day when we have all developed to our spiritual potentials so that we can progressively as a race rely less and less on the money system and finally say goodbye to it. The legislators can unanimously rule that we do not need to have any religion so that any establishment of religion can be considered a High Crime against Humanity. Scientology can freely be used all across the globe

              It is so kind of you to reply to me out of concern for me. Thank you.

              I understand that there are a lot of nice people out there, but my motives have always been sharing resources that could really get rid of all the crooks i.e. top management.

              The tech and middle management and admin staff seem to be ok and are victims of the system really.

              Thank you

              We will see how things go as time progresses. I hope I do not discourage anyone from finding resources to develop their spiritual potentials because they are very essential.

              Thanks for your comments.

    • madame duran

      So…you’re gonna watch the “Going Clear” documentary soon, yes?

        I assume it will go to youtube sometime

    The stress test tables on the streets of Melbourne have been on a role for the past 2days. At this point, I have to wonder if they’ve conned unaware people on the street, or $cio adherents, to misleadingly pose with the diabolical Dianetics book.

      Get some new shorts, you dork. I think they sucked this one in with Dianetics : The Video Game. I hear it’s like Tetris, but the pieces never fit, no matter how good you are.

      • beauty for ashes

        You know they were pants that he probably had to cut because he couldn’t afford shorts. (notice the weird rolled up cuffs.)

        • L. Wrong Hubturd

          Haha, might be, but I’ve noticed plenty of folks down at Disney World from other parts of the world outside of the US that do this for fashion too.

      Why are there never any people in those Ideal Org photos???

        Hey Whoopie!

  • Sir Hemet TC Burlwood, VIII

    Just noticed this YouTube video about the Scientology CC. It was posted today, but looks dated. Just started watching it, and I’m not sure that I have seen it before, but surely someone here knows about it:

    http://youtu.be/mGf-9hcdmHQ

    • L. Wrong Hubturd

      Holy crap! Over 6 hours? Ain’t nobody got time for that.

      • Sir Hemet TC Burlwood, VIII

        Indeed! Who here would spend an inordinate amount of time reading about Scientology on the internet?! Not me, I tell you!

        • L. Wrong Hubturd

          High 5, bro! Lets blow this scene.

          • Sir Hemet TC Burlwood, VIII

            I’m with you, LWH! Let’s get out of here. So, ah…ok, you wanna head over to WWP, or to Rinder’s place?

      • Hingle McCringleberry

        I was all like ‘Lord Xenu, its a fire!!!!’ Nice.

        • L. Wrong Hubturd

          I went down to Marcab to get me some cold pop.

    • Donna Cline Sargent

      its the same show played 5 or 6 times

      • Sir Hemet TC Burlwood, VIII

        I didn’t make that far. If you know, about how far into it does first repeat?
        One thing I did notice is that they mis-identified WBM as BFG.

        • Donna Cline Sargent

          Its about a hour long. like 51 min. but i am pretty sure its 2 documentary’s put together. i know i have seen them before. after it started the same beginning i just fast forward to check it.

        • Donna Cline Sargent

          actually i think its a few shows put together, or rather clips.

    • AutOmatic

      “…this man is talking to an ashtray…” LOL! …gets me every time.

    • Frodis73

      The original is about 2 1/2 hours long and it’s about a year old. I’m pretty sure Tony mentioned it too, but I could be wrong about that part. I think he interviewed the director/writer, Steven.

    “Our help is yours” really?
    what about the “Out exchange” policy?, scientology does not DO ANYTHING if is not receiving something in return to name money or free labor otherwise is considered OUT EXCHANGE.
    They are trying to appear to be so benevolent, I wonder what would happen if any of the real humanitarian organization came and ask scientology for help, I wonder what the response would be.
    like any of this organizations:

    Action Against Hunger (AAH)
    CARE is one of the world’s largest private
    international humanitarian organizations, committed to helping families in poor
    communities improve their lives
    Caritas International
    Doctors Without Borders
    Emergency Nutrition Network (ENN)
    International Committee of the Red
    Cross (ICRC)
    International Rescue Committee (IRC)
    Mercy Corps (MC)
    Refugees International
    Save the Children
    The Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance
    (OFDA)
    United Nations Office for the Coordination of
    Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA)
    World Vision International

    • Hingle McCringleberry

      Those organizations are undoubtedly way too busy to even think about Davey and his private relief force.

      So if you were a Scientology celebrity and wanted to distance yourself from this clusterfuck, would you do it before or after Sundance?

      • After.

        • Ella Raitch

          Interesting. I would have thought before so. I was hoping we might get some last minute news of someone or other leaving before Sunday.

          • They have to see it first and what a lot of them will see is the Freedumb Mag version.

  • 0tessa

    All the humanitarian activities of the Scientology cult are only for PR purposes. And nothing else. It has always been like that. They are not interested at all in ‘down stats’. They use the goodheartedness of their adherents to organize these activities, but the cult doesn’t give a penny.

    Short item

    The Sundance Film Festival is just getting underway, but Alex Gibney’s film will likely continue to make headlines for months to come and may even snag some awards along the way.</blockquote)

    • No doubt. I suspect it will be even bigger.

    • TheHoleDoesNotExist

      Today would be a good day to fly out of the northeast … blizzard predicted for Saturday. Ironically, forecast for Utah is high’s in the 50’s, sunny with a 47% chance of raining SP’s.

      • Ella Raitch

        Perfect

        • TheHoleDoesNotExist

          It really is going to be perfect weather in Utah. Even winds will be very light which is a big deal when landing near mountains. We SP’s are totally responsible. Big Pharma offered a bonus for our powers. No, no. No need to thank us. A check will suffice.

            How are your party plans going? And what time are you partying?

            • TheHoleDoesNotExist

              Party planned for HBO debut – March. Right now, I think my cable/internet provider is getting more and more impossible – I might not be able to just get HBO for a month. Gahh. Waiting to see if HBO streaming will show up before then, but they’re not talking.

      Hello bright spark. I’ve been up for 14 hours. What’s your excuse?

      • NOLAGirl

        It’s 6 am here. 🙂 That’s the only excuse I have. LOL

        • Ella Raitch

          I’m not a bright and early morning person

          • NOLAGirl

            The only time my brain shuts down is when I’m asleep so I usually wake up bursting with ideas, plans, etc. I’m actually at my best early, by later in the evening, I’m too tired to give a f**k. 🙂

            • Ella Raitch

              I enjoy the half sleeping dreaming state too much. As soon as I feel myself start to wake I resist and try to go back to dreamland

    • morning nola!

      • NOLAGirl

        Morning hon. Any word on the vehicle?

        • well they closed yesterday at 5:30pm and don’t open today til 8am…..i figure i’ll call down there around 10 if i haven’t heard from them cuz i’d really like to know, ya know? i mean i KNOW there’s something else besides the starter—something with the fuel line…..he said when he called me tuesday he’d call me the next day or thursday…..GAH!!! frustrating!!!!

          • NOLAGirl

            😉 Hang in there honey. Hollar at me if you need anything. XOXOX

            • i thinks compounded by my anxiety, ya know? though of course i think most people would be anxious anyway….but then mine is just intensified….just figure the damn thing out, tell me, fix it and let it sit there til the 3rd!!! and of course the ‘unknowing’ makes me think of bad ‘fatal’ things it could have—mind in overdrive…..definitely phoning around 10 today!!!

            • NOLAGirl

              Don’t start stressin’ before you even know what’s wrong. I know you can’t help it, but as your friend I have to give you the obligatory “CHILL” 😀

              From what you told me on the phone it doesn’t sound like something serious. So..deep breaths…you’ll find out soon.

            • Yeah, i don’t think the fuel line issue is a something serious, as once it got warmed up it ran fine, then i could start it after going somewhere without giving it gas….to me, that’s indicative of NOT a major issue….BUT we’re also talking about ME and i have that constant carnival music playing the background!!! i’m hoping the delay in getting back to me is him trying to get an used starter!! if it’s an used starter, with the labor and tow (damn att FREE towing up to $50 not covering TWO FUCKING BLOCKS!!!) then i can cover it……

              5 planets in aries, an anxiety condition—chill out would only happen if i ended up like mr. torrance at the end of movie version of the shining! 😀

              “$50 per day “. Somewhere there’s a Sea Org member that suddenly realizes that Big Pharma pays better than what they earn via Co$. That’s a motive for escape right there!

            I am hoping that Mickey Loomis (Saints GM) will be able to help. He’s a close friend to all the family members and a very good mediator from what I’ve heard. I know he doesn’t want to see this turn ugly, so….fingers crossed.

              There a factions of the family & businesses who don’t like her (and others who do) and in the court filing yesterday the family basically called her a gold-digger. From what I hear, because the kids asked the Judge to order a geriatric psychiatrist to see Mr. Benson to assess his ‘mental competence’, everyone is just waiting now on his decision. No word on how the elder Benson feels about this.

      “The only other person I heard that about was Jenna Elfman.” Elfman is now the star of the CBS sitcom
      Accidentally on Purpose but this was before she had established her career on

        • Destructor of Worlds

          I have a theory. Apollo people said that Dave and Shelly came back from their honeymoon with blacknees on their face meaning being severely upset about something.

          What if they saw this movie on their honeymoon with their Scientology background? (Instead of the fun made about dave being inadeqaute in the bedroom)

      Freewinds aka The Bankruptcy Barge. Way to go Mike!

      • Richard Grant

        Yep. Mike posted about the sorry state of the Freewinds just a couple of days ago, if anyone missed it:

        http://www.mikerindersblog.org/freewinds-going-out-of-business-sale/

        • Illinoisian

          John P did some fine analysis in a comment. Did some numbers on the cost of maintaining it.

        • Juicer77

          Do you think they’ll ever get a new ship to replace it, since the Fleecewinds is the only remaining link to Hubbard’s Great Sea Legacy? (Are the Apollo and Diana still out there?)

          • Richard Grant

            Some commenter — I’m sorry but I forget who — made the interesting suggestion that Miscavige might swap the Freewinds for the nautical equivalent of a Gulfstream private jet: something sleek and luxurious, capable of accommodating maybe 50-60 passengers, which is a much more realistic number given the current state of the business. This would be consistent with his overall strategy of pivoting Scientology away from the broke and diminishing public toward a small number of wealthy whales.

            • NOLAGirl

              I think this will happen too. He’ll upgrade to something smaller but fancier and will charge five times the usual prices for people to board.

          • flyonthewall

            Freewinds wasn’t connected to Hubbard at all. All his ships were sold off and probably scrapped. They were crime scenes after all

            • Semper Phi

              The Diana is still afloat, berthed in Curacao last I knew. They used to bring her out for tours and photo ops for the public on the ship. I saw her when I was there in 2004 & 2005. She’s pretty small, and it wasn’t much of a tour.

    Did anyone here already take note of Louis Theroux’s tweet about his fellow documentarian Alex Gibney? It’s just a link to the Hollywood Reporter, but I think it’s a cool gesture of support.

    • Shelly Britt Corrias

      Saw that yesterday, awesome.

    • Bleuler

      Scientology has 933 000 x 47 twitter followers. Their twitter account has been “sheep dipped” so they can’t all be seen with wog eyes.

  • Tony Ortega

    I’m really sorry about this delay. I’m still waiting for a source to make a video unprivate, and there’s a communication hangup.

    Anyone have Jon Atack’s telephone number? Email it to me.

    • Richard Grant

      He’s probably got his Atack Alarm set to “Saturday”

    • NOLAGirl

      We give you grief Tony, but we’ll always wait. 🙂 Do what you gotta do.

    • Sir Hemet TC Burlwood, VIII

      Hey Tony, think you might have a chance to ask Ted Koppel about his interaction with DM? Or would that even be worthwhile?

      • Tony Ortega

        I’ve thought about seeing if he’s interested in an interview. Maybe some time down the road.

        • Sir Hemet TC Burlwood, VIII

          Excellent.

          • NOLAGirl

            Most excellent. That is an interview I want to read/see…whatever, wherever, whenever. 🙂

    • Shelly Britt Corrias

      If it’s any help, he was on email 20 minutes ago.

    • Phil McKraken

      OSA’s got the number. Maybe they can get it to you.

  • Juicer77

    If you are still in, most of your friends and family are probably out. They’re waiting for you. Take that step. There are many kind people who want to help.

  • Meanwhile, the Freewinds is in Aruba, and waking up to Wall-o-Ship.

    • NOLAGirl

      Can you siphon fuel out of another ship? LOL 🙂

      • Richard Grant

        That is a very funny image but then your smile freezes on your face because you realize they would do this if they could find a way.

        • Observer

          Some poor Sea Ogre would be out there sucking on a hose to get the siphon flow started.

          • NOLAGirl

            I am so wrong for laughing at that. 🙂

          • Richard Grant

            That’s exactly the image in my head. Get it out, please.

            • Panopea Abrupta

              What is worse, given this is $cientology, is that he would mistakingly latch onto the sewage outlet.

          • They’re good at sucking, Davey says so! YSYSYSYSYS!

        • NOLAGirl

          Is it even possible to do it? I know most ships have some sort of rigging that hooks them up to the fuel pump, but you can’t go and open it like a gas cap on a car can you?

          • Richard Grant

            You’d have to stick in a hose and pump it out, I would guess. Possible given the right equipment, but not so easy to pull off undetected. They’d need a REALLY good shore story, and firearms.

      • shasha40

        I can see tiny dick ordering some poor SO to do it now . We need more fuel ! : D

    • Juicer77

      The big ship cruisers are having breakfast on the lido deck and commenting on the poor Fleecewind saps running around looking for crumbs. Somebody toss them some food!

      • At least the wind is blowing in the other direction. Can you imagine waking up in your Freewinds luxury bunk and smelling the breakfast banquet coming from those cruisers?

      • Benfranklin

        Wow, the Freewinds looks like a midget when compared to that giant cruise ship next to it. What a shame that a ship tasked with so-called planetary clearing would be so tiny in the scheme of things

        • Douglas D. Douglas

          The Freewinds actually looks pretty good in that shot. In reality, it is much, much smaller, as this much clearer photo will attest:

          (refresh!)

      • Phil McKraken

        What’s most embarrassing is that one of those is the Moonie ship and the other is the Raelian ship. Scientology’s cult barge is sucking wind next to those.

        • Douglas D. Douglas

          And coming down from above, just out of view, is the Klingon ship…

      • Phil McKraken

        And what is PTZtv? When I see that, I immediately think Putz TV.

  • Richard Grant

    So … did we get a visit from OSA yesterday?

    • Sir Hemet TC Burlwood, VIII

      I didn’t see him. Grasshopper finally made his profile private. I was having some fun with him, and I hope he comes back with more of his lunacy, but preferably with a recovered, rational mind. Techie really called him out and took him down hard, in a brilliant display of fully-recovered and ironclad reasoning.

      • Richard Grant

        Thanks! Sounds like the poor pup might’ve gone off to lick his wounds. Personally, I would fear to provoke a full-on Techie take-down.

      • Observer

        I’m so glad there are so many brilliant, articulate exes here. They can pin Scientology apologists to the wall while depriving them of the “you were never a Scientologist and you’re taking that out of context” line they like to hide behind.

        • NOLAGirl

          ^^^^^

        • Douglas D. Douglas

          It is tiresome, isn’t it?

          I was good enough to avoid the equally silly line of reasoning about drugs. How can Scientologists be the authorities on drugs unless they have experienced all of them? If you haven’t been an addict, you are understanding addiction “out of context!”

          • Observer

            And their opinions about psychiatric care aren’t valid because they haven’t tried it.

            • Douglas D. Douglas

              Exactly. They do, however, have an innate understanding of delusion.

            • Shelly Britt Corrias

              Yes, albeit very twisted: they are deluded into using delusion as a tactic: anyone with opposing views is deluded.

            • Observer

              I’d say they have an intimate experience of delusion. If they understood it they’d be more likely to recognize it, I think.

            • Dr_Orpheus

              I’ve seen that hypocrisy pointed out to COS-apologists. You aren’t qualified to criticize Scientology unless you have taken every course offered by COS and never been declared an SP. Scientologists, however, are perfectly qualified to criticize psychology and psychiatry even if they have never read a single book on the subject that their church wouldn’t have approved of.

          • Shelly Britt Corrias

            oh man, sorry I missed whatever that was. or maybe not … 😉

        • shasha40

          Ditto !

        • Ah, then there’s the “Things have completely changed since you left five minutes ago” gambit.

      • Sidney18511

        Ohh I missed that! Can anybody post it if possible?

      • Ella Raitch

        That was an object lesson in how tightly an apparently intelligent and articulate person can bind themselves with rationalisations and justifications.

      • My mind’s right, boss. “I.. must… agree… with… TC… Burlwood… VIII… Scientology… is… a… conspiracy… of… the… devil.. El… Ronno… Hubbardo…”

        • Sir Hemet TC Burlwood, VIII

          Hello grasshopper. While it may be true you are of relatively sound mind, the evidence that you have left here indicates that your reasoning skills are quite immature. The pattern of your responses continues to reflect the defensive and blinded style of someone who has not shaken off the cult-think of Scientology, or otherwise learned to think skeptically in a balanced way. While I appreciate your flattery (even though it is false and backhanded), stating that you ‘must’ agree with me, is somewhat akin to agreeing with me if I were to effectively solve an engineering problem. The proof is in the quality and outcome of the design, not in the person making the claim. You merely make claims but have have not shown your work. And what you have shown, well, let’s just allow other readers to reach their own conclusions.

          • Well, thanks for noticing I am of relatively sound mind.

    • Ella Raitch

      Is OSA short for one solitary asshole?

      • Newiga

        I think that’s a pretty accurate description now-a-days….

      • Illinoisian

        May the day come when that is literally true. (And may he then turn out the lights when HE leaves.)

    We now interrupt our normal programming to bring you this (inspired by Sid 😉 of the Bunker Weather Channel.)

    Weather Report

    Park City, Utah

    Sun., Jan. 25th 2:15 p.m.

    A dense fog followed by wintry mix, bouts of thunder and some forked lightning are predicted for Hemet, CA over the next few days. A blizzard of entheta is expected to envelop downtown Hollywood, centring on Sunset and Catalina. Storm clouds will darken the skies to unprecedented levels.

    High winds, mud-slides, hail and icy blasts will probably also occur. People are warned to be safe and avoid exposure to the epicentre of these turbulences, a small dark volatile depression. A minor earthquake, or, at the very least tremors, could also happen as Hemet is on major fault lines and the instability of El Meano has been increasing of late, according to Observers.

    Park City,Utah, however, will be the centre of a high-pressure front that will move out to cover the whole country, bringing sunshine, clear skies and rising temperatures, going above 47 F for several weeks. Anthropocentric warming on an unprecedented scale should be confirmed by Observers over coming months when the Park City phenomenon is further boosted by the BBC, a well-known weather-maker and the May release of carefully researched data – some never seen until now – will further fuel the phenomenon. Only Tea Party members, the Koch Brothers and those who have Ayn Rand as poster-girl for their cupidity will be able to deny it.

    • Illinoisian

      Brilliant!

    • Sid

      Meanwhile the remaining 3 OT VIIIs in Clearwater are bragging that not a single hurricane hit Flag in the past month and are taking full credit for it.

  • Shelly Britt Corrias

    This odd story was all over Twitter yesterday and is continuing today. http://crooksandliars.com/2015/01/million-dollar-denial-holocaust-revision

    Is it old news? From Crooks and Liars originally published in Breitbart Unmasked

    headline: Million-Dollar Denial: Holocaust Revision, Thomas Edison’s Fortune, And The Cult Of Scientology

    (Twitter is getting somewhat brutal for $cn’s PR but it’s only going to get worse.)

    • Kim O’Brien

      i saw that and was like ..”WHA????”

    • Tony Ortega

      It’s raving bullshit.

      • Douglas D. Douglas

        Is that a professional assessment…?

        • Robert Eckert

          He is a professional studier of both ravings and bullshit.

      • Shelly Britt Corrias

        Thank you. Well good. Not only does Scientology need to worry about combating the truth revealed at Sundance, they have a little batshit crazy to deal with.

      • Tony Ortega

        I have my own concerns about the tendency of some Scientologists — indies as well — to be sympathetic to some Holocaust denial. (There was a really stark example of this on Facebook recently.) But that’s a separate issue from this bizarre bit of “reporting.”

        • Shelly Britt Corrias

          Over time the Scientologist becomes indoctrinated in all manner of conspiracy theories. It’s a key defense mechanism. It makes sense they would lean towards sympathy for others no matter how outlandish their claims. Thanks again.

          • Perhaps some of the people who are attracted to Scientology are also attracted to conspiracy theories because both satisfy a psychological need to see themselves as exceptional.

            They both provide dramatic ‘secret knowledge’ and the (illusory) ‘status’ of being one of the select few who are capable of the independent thought required to see the ‘real truth’.

            These are the people who become ‘true believers’ because their self-esteem is built on their commitment to these bizarre beliefs (which they see as ‘individuality’). They will rationalise away any contrary evidence or argument, because they have a need to ‘stand out’, and no other way to achieve it.

            Unfortunately, most people do see them as they see themselves. They recoil from conspiracy theorists (especially holocaust deniers). Consequently, such people tend to associate with the like-minded, entrenching their beliefs further.

            • ze moo

              There appear to be many reasons why someone joins the clampire. Your conspiracy theory well describes why some become ready to accept Lroon lunacy. Anyone who can accept one or more the conspiracy stuff is ready for the secret knowledge only Lroon can provide. A subset of this type of personality can be sucked into the clampire. That is the way all cults go. Find someone who can be sucked in and then use the time honored methods to bend them to the cults mindset.

              There are also the clams who want to save the planet, they get involved because they actually think that Lroons ‘applied philosophy’ can do some good. I can see where some think the introductory ‘courses’ help them, but anyone who stays in after the KSW programming has had very big blinders installed. It does seem that many prospective clams leave around this time in their clam programming. Accepting all of Lroons wit and wisdom is a stretch that most cannot make. Programming out Humane Emotion and empathy is not easy for many people. Those who pass this barrier become the foot soldiers and paying customers who keep the clampire afloat.

              Then there are the salesmen who see they have a place in the pyramid scheme and want their cut of the pie. These are the people who become commission earning loyal minions. They have found that fealty to COB and whatever the current interpretation of Lronism is the way to make money. They find a place in the pyramid scheme and know how to get their cut of the pie. This where the Cardones and Chens and NarCONon franchisees and Case Stupervisors and Regs come from. Anyone with any success in these areas become clam management. At least they become management until their stats go down. The ranks of ABLE businesses are also drawn from type of clam. Such a position requires not only ‘glibness’ but also total worship of the COB. You don’t get to make money off the scam with devotion to the COB.

              Being a commission earning clam used to be an exalted position, but it cut down the slice of the pie that Miscavage got. That is one of the reasons that commission earning staff are being replaced by Sea bOrg. Simple greed, greed that changes the shape of the intake process and sends a different skill set to process of getting new meat.

              The process of getting new meat used to require a very good sales pitch, combined with the secret knowledge and love bombing, this process can be very compelling to those in the right frame of mind. Making that frame of mind takes a lot of sales oriented skill, a skill that has been slowly cut out of the pyramid scheme ever since the mission holders purge around 1984.

              Cutting out those who have the skills to manipulate the prospective clam out of the pie is the death knell of the clampire. Sure, it is a slow death, but anything that doesn’t replace the ranks of those overreged or over sec checked or those who who have just seen too much excrement to go on dooms the cult to a slow death.

              Miscavage has always been the worst enemy of Lroon. His actions have doomed the clampire to a slow contraction that now focuses on retaining and re-re-retraining those who have been loyal minions for many years. But without replacing those who have left, the pie shrinks, shrinks to a point where the current infrastructure becomes unsustainable.

              The mystery sandwich has become rancid in the wake of the internet and there is no way to fix that.

        • For the record, this indie thinks holocaust denial is crazy, 9/11 “truther” conspiracies are crazy, and that vaccines are a good thing.

  • Douglas D. Douglas

    While looking for an image of he Freewinds shot from above (for the “Ty-D-Bol” shoop below), I ran across this fascinating bit of maritime history. It’s a capsule narrative of the Freewinds previous life. Among the fun facts: the ship was originally intended to be an auto ferry; it was converted to a cruise liner before it was launched; when it changed hands the German crew resigned in protest and was replaced, in succession by Norwegians and Filipino crews. here’s the full account, along with the link and an image. There are more postcards of “The Happy Ship” at the link:

    Bohème was one of a series of four car ferries built in Finland. The others became the car ferries Finnpartner, Finnhansa and Prins Hamlet. Bohème was originally intended to partner Lion Ferries’ Prins Hamlet on its UK-Germany Prins Ferries routes, but the service grew more slowly than expected and the second ship was not required. She was sold before completion to Wallenius Bremen, and chartered to Commodore Cruise Line. The hull was redesigned as a cruise ship, with cabins added to the planned car decks. She never had bow or stern doors fitted. Wallenius named their ships after operas, and so was namedBohème. She was delivered in Wallenius colours, these being changed when she started operating 7-night trips out of Miami from December 1968.

    In March 1981 Commodore Cruise Line, as well as the Bohème, were sold to the Finland-based Rederi Ab Sally. The new owners re-registered the Bohème to Panama, which resulted in most of the German officers resigning due to worsened working conditions. The resigned officers were replaced with Scandinavians. The following year the German deck and engine crews were replaced by Filipinos. Originally the new crew members were meant for Navarino, a former ocean liner (ex Gripsholm 1957) Sally had purchased for conversion into service with Commodore Cruise Line. However, after the Navarino was severely damaged due to capsising of the drydock, the conversion plans were abandoned. The crew already hired for the Navarino was transferred to the Bohème.

    In 1984, the Church of Scientology’s parent body, the Church of Scientology International (CSI), decided to obtain a ship on which to deliver high-level Scientology courses. An entity called the Flag Ship Trust (FST) was formed in December 1985 with the aid of a $5 million donation from the International Association of Scientologists. In September 1986, the Flag Ship Trust purchased Bohème, renamed her Freewinds and refitted her to enable its use for Scientology purposes. The vessel was put into service in June 1988.

    The Freewinds is the fifth ship to be owned by the Church of Scientology. The other four have been the Royal Scotsman (later the Apollo), the Enchanter (later the Diana), the Avon River (later the Athena), and the Nekambi, all of which have been scrapped, apparently. However, the nameplate of the Diana has been preserved and is on display aboard the Freewinds. The church also operated two World War II surplus ships during the late 1960s through the early 1970s. These were the Bolivar, a subchaser, and the T.S.M.Y. Excalibur. Both of these vessels were docked at San Pedro, California, and they were used for training new Sea Org members.

    The Freewinds is the exclusive training centre for OT VIII (Operating Thetan Level 8), the highest level of Scientology and the last of the published OT levels. Members of the Church of Scientology who have reached the highest levels must receive their training on the Freewinds, as the Church does not deliver this service anywhere else. Besides the OT VIII training, the Freewinds is used for delivering lower-level classes and auditing services. She is also used as a recreational vessel for Scientologists. The ship hosts a “Freewinds Maiden Voyage” each July as an “OT Summit” for high-ranking Scientologists at which Scientology accomplishments and plans for the future are publicly celebrated. A significant portion of the ship is given over to its use as a religious retreat for Scientologists. As well as various course rooms and a library of L. Ron Hubbard books, the Freewinds has areas given over to the Religious Technology Center, Sea Org and International Association of Scientologists. As is common practice in other Scientology organizations, the ship also has an “LRH Office” symbolically set aside for L. Ron Hubbard’s use. Freewinds is one ship that I am not keen to travel on (bizarrely I was once invited after providing some historical information some years back).

    • They don’t mention that shortly before CoS bought it, the Bohème ran aground in St. Petersburg.

    • Observer

      Is it wrong of me to hope the Freewinds sinks spectacularly? With no injuries or loss of life, of course. I just want it to be a huge, embarrassing flap, which will impinge on Scientologists everywhere, no matter how far inside the bubble they are.

      • Douglas D. Douglas

        Not with a bang, but a gurgle…?

      • 1subgenius

        Nah, there would be pollution involved in a sinking.
        Let it be properly scrapped.

        • Observer

          There’s already pollution involved while she’s afloat. If she sank there would be less pollution overall than if they kept her limping along for another few years and then scrapped her.

            Hey buddy, they’ll never talk to you. It is a big problem that could be solved by scuttling the asbestos winds. Or better yet seal it up like

            But even less if its scrapped sooner rather than later.

      • Illinoisian

        I’m trying to imagine a series of system failures serious enough to be reported in the media that would take place over a series of months, become a sort of running joke in the media, and then result in it drifting into some inconvenient place, in a half submerged condition, so that there would be a lot of news coverage as it was towed out to sea to be scuttled. How’s that?

          That’ll work. I was thinking something along the lines of the Freewinds hitting something and rupturing the hull while engaged in illegal dumping of sewage or something similar. Something scandalous.

      • stillgrace2

        The World Health Association will approve. It’s for the greater good.

              thanks Ill fix it now

          • Probably true, but they’ve sunk all kinds of warships, probably with asbestos, with the lame excuse that it’ll be a “fish habitat”. (Of course it will be–where else are the fish going to live?)

            • Eclipse-girl

              reading a Nat Geo article about sinking subway cars to make an artificial reef.

              “This is non-friable asbestos, which means it’s not in a dangerous form—[there are] no loose asbestos fibers, but [rather] a small amount of asbestos bound up in an epoxy matrix,” he said.

              However Blue asbestos is friable

            • NOLAGirl

              There is talk of doing that (sinking old ships) down here to shore up the marshland against hurricanes.

            • Eclipse-girl

              It works, and according to a quick perusal of article, has been done for thousands of years.

              Just try and make sure what is being scuttled is relatively free of things that will damage the environment.
              BP put enough crap into the gulf.

            • NOLAGirl

              Amen to that. I try not to get started on BP. LOL It tends to send me on a rant.

            • Eclipse-girl

              As it should

            • ze moo

              All electrical stuff and toxic stuff is removed from any ship being used for an artifical reef. The Coast Guard is very strict on that point.

          • Wogalistic

            That’s true, I didn’t think about that, but if memory recalls its nastiest when it starts flaking and becomes airborne. Wouldn’t it, at least, stay together at the bottom of the drink?

        • Wogalistic

          “The greatest good for the greatest number of dynamics”? LOL

          I would like to know if it has ever been cleaned by a group qualified to detect and handle asbestos. Seems like it would be less of a health risk if it sank for sure.

          • stillgrace2

            Lawrence Woodcroft has stated that complete removal of the deadly substance is impossible. PSA: researching the Freewinds shenanigans is a huge, life-sucking rabbit hole.

          • Eclipse-girl

            I remember seeing a 40 min video of a Lawrence Woodcraft and his story of the refitting of the ?Boheme as it became the Freewinds.

            He described a scientologist who was working on the ship as taking a bite of the blue asbestos.
            Ron had said fiberglass was bad and asbestos was fine. the refitting took out all the fiberglass, but kept as the blue asbestos.

  • PreferToBeAnon2

    I’m sure someone posted this yesterday, but I just saw it:

    http://laist.com/2015/01/21/going_clear_scientology_documentary.php

    Things to look for in the docu:
    * Old footage
    * “It’ll focus on Scientology’s star following, especially taking a close
    look at Cruise and John Travolta’s involvement—and this won’t be
    painting a pretty picture of them. The documentary discusses how they’re
    still members despite all the complaints from people about the abuse
    and forced labor the church imposes on its members.”
    * Story about how DM makes fun of Cruise
    * Interview with Spanky Taylor
    * Interviews with Beghe and the usual suspects

    • PreferToBeAnon2

      Whilst I tire a bit of the celebrity angle of $cientology, it is a way to “main line” the PR and effect change. Oh, there will be fallout from this. Cruise, Travolta, etc won’t be able to have an interview without inquiry now. And, I think the rags–who look for any angle on anything–are finally realizing that people want to read the Scion dirt. This could be a sea change (pun intended).

      • Just Dee

        I am not sure why, but I really hope that Travolta gets it through his thick head that everyone already knows he is gay and people are ok with it. I would hate to think he doesn’t know this.

      • i-Betty

        I agree. 99% of the world’s population has no clue who or what scientologists are, so if CoS are going to use celebs to promote themselves, why shouldn’t we glory in the epicness of the fail when these celebs draw all the wrong attention down upon themselves and the cult?

        Using celebs as promotional tools was a massive back-firing bullet which worked for a while before looping back round and blowing both their feet off. Now the celebs are as a big a joke as their ‘religion’. Way to go, scientology PR Department For Long Term Thinking.

        Yes, Stace.

        Yes. Morning delay leading to much good-natured chit chat. You know, the usual morning here in the bitter, bitter fringes of the Internet…

        That comment reminded me of one of my favorite exchanges between a reporter and Cary Grant (in his later years). The request was terse: “How old Cary Grant?” The reply: “Old Cary Grant fine. How you?”

    Nice work, Ryan Hamilton and Jeff Ray. Welcome, Patrick Pendley, to the Bunker Honor Roll of fearless attorneys, or as Espiando so nicely nick-named you, Frickin Sharks with Laser Beams. Thank you for taking on the cult.

  • Couch_Incident

    Quick question while we wait: What is the significance of forty-seven (47) to SCN? I’ve seen it referenced jokingly here in the last couple of weeks, but Google doesn’t tell me what it’s about. 47 binders to Lawrence Wright?

    • Observer

      A few weeks ago they put out some flyer claiming 47 times expansion of something or other.

      • Couch_Incident

        Thanks! What’s their lame excuse for it not being 470x expansion?

        • Lucille Austero

          that would not be believable, would it?

          • ROFL!

          • Couch_Incident

            Must be those damn psychs interfering.

        • Observer

          They’re saving that for when things get really desperate.

      • AutOmatic

        If they used 42, it would’ve almost been believable…seeing as that’s the answer to life, the universe, and everything.

      • eldritch cuckoo

        Sorry Observer, but that’s older (unless you were joking). That was something Hubbard made up about expansion. The number doesn’t mean anything, though; Hubbard just pulled it out of his ass without an explanation…
        Couchie, please look it up on ESMB, type it in the search, the answer is there, I haz asked it myself some time ago and got good answers from oldies, but too lazy to look it up now …:

        http://www.forum.exscn.net/forum.php

    • 🙂 As Observer noted, the insane crooks claimed they were expanding and tossed out the number 47, pulled straight from David’s ass. Now it’s become a Bunker meme. 🙂

    • Lucille Austero

      I would like to upvote your comment 47 times 🙂

    • Ella Raitch

      If you skip one day at the bunker you miss approximately 47 new memes

      • Couch_Incident

        I was in Thailand for a week either working or drinking and find it hard to pick up some of the strands like 47. Incidentally, I can confirm that the Buddhist monks were NOT walking around the temples I visited reading “The Way to Happiness.” They must not have gotten the Word yet.

        • Just Dee

          Maybe the Buddhist monks were actually actors that scientology advertises for all the time.

  • Sherbet

    While waiting, please enjoy this musical interlude:

    Well, it’s a marvelous day out in Sundance
    Scientology, bared for all eyes.
    A fantabulous day to look askance
    ‘Neath the cover of January skies.

    Our Proprietor’s there in Park City,
    And the audience can’t wait to see.
    Alex Gibney has done it up pretty,
    The fraud known as Scientology.

    And all the festival’s magic seems to soar to the sky
    COB is pissed, we all know that; he can run; he can’t hide!
    Reveal it all in Sundance, let’s go, HBO!
    The cult and its high finance, oh, whoa! What a show!

    When the curtain goes up out in Sundance
    And the cult is exposed as a fraud,
    Only buckets of cash are, at first glance,
    Shown to be Scientology’s god.

    And all the money in Hemet cannot fix bad PR.
    Only one thing’s a sure bet: Alex Gibney’s a star.
    Let’s show the world in Sundance, let’s go, HBO!
    Let’s pull down Davey’s short pants, Oh, No, What a show!

    (Fade out; yes, church of scientology — fade out)

      Wonderful, Wonderful, Sherb, but what’s the original?

      • Observer
        • Captain Howdy

          Oh, silly me. I almost met Van at JJ Folleys an infamous Boston watering hole. It was early and there was hardly anyone there and I stopped in for my usual double tequila sunrise in a pint glass before work and Dicky the barkeep proclaimed that Van and Peter Wolf had just left. I didn’t give a shit about PW as I would see him him and Amiee Mann all the time in Allston, but Van..that’s something else.

      This is Tony’s time – he’s worked overtime for decades and lately 2 or 3 stories every day. I think we can afford to suck it up a few days. Also, I got a lot done this morning.

    • Artoo45

      He’s on assignment, surrounded by a bevy of glamourous models, whose fawning attentions are making it difficult to type. You try to form cogent, pithy posts from the back of a G5 over the Great Lakes. Give a guy a break.

      • madame duran

        I thought that was John P’s job.

        • Artoo45

          John P is a fictional character ginned up for the internets. Agent Ortega is real.

        • Couch_Incident

          An overlap of the models might lead to some awkward moments when Tony O and John P gather for the secret Big Pharma council meetings.

  • Truthiwant

    If it’s a problem, Tony, with the video being private, I’m OK with that, as long as the private parts don’t belong to Captain Miscavige.
