Compton scam rehab clinic definitely a Church of Scientology operation, witnesses say

AMHECphoto

[A publicity photo from World Literacy Crusade about its clinic.]

Yesterday, we revealed that the operators of a Scientology rehab clinic in Compton, California are facing felony charges for defrauding the state Medi-Cal program. The charges come after an investigation by the state’s Bureau of Medi-Cal Fraud and Elder Abuse which has lasted more than a year and also caught up three prominent educators in the Compton Unified School District, who lost their jobs as a result.

The state agency is alleging that the educators supplied students to the clinic (including the members of a legendary football program), where they were put through Scientology exercises — the same courses that beginning church members go through. The clinic then billed Medi-Cal as though the students had actually received counseling for drug addiction. (The students never knew they were part of a scheme to defraud the state.)

Often, here at the Underground Bunker, we post raw documents with our stories for our readers to see with their own eyes what we’re reporting on. In this case, however, the court documents we had obtained included supplemental material that included private addresses and other sensitive information we were not comfortable putting online. We’ve removed that material and can now show you the actual charging documents of the six people we mentioned — Hanan Islam (the founder of the drug rehab clinic), three of her children, and two other rehab counselors.

Also, since yesterday’s story broke we’ve been hearing from former Church of Scientology members and Narconon officials who tell us that the rehab clinic at the World Literacy Crusade in Compton, known as American Health and Education Clinics, was definitely an operation that was known about, licensed, and encouraged by the Church of Scientology itself.

Today, we’re going to hear from one of those former officials with his own eyewitness account. We’ll have more in coming days.

It was in 2004 that Hanan Islam and Rev. Alfreddie Johnson Jr. founded American Health and Education Clinics at the World Literacy Crusade in Compton. (Rev. Johnson has not been arrested or charged with any crime.) At that time, Eric Tenorio was working at the country’s flagship Scientology drug rehab clinic, Narconon Arrowhead in Oklahoma. Tenorio has since left his job working for Narconon, as well as Scientology itself, and was featured in a 2013 expose of Narconon by NBC’s Rock Center.

Tenorio tells us that in 2004, a woman (not Hanan Islam) was sent from the World Literacy Crusade to Narconon Arrowhead to receive instruction.

“She was there to train as a course supervisor,” he says.

About six months later, Tenorio was in Los Angeles and he was sent to visit the woman and check up on the program.

“It was a dump. It was in an industrial area. The sauna was in a garage — the room it was in had a garage door. The rest of it was just run down course rooms,” Tenorio remembers.

We asked if he saw any patients using the facility.

“There was one person in the sauna, and maybe two people on course,” he says.

It was obvious to Tenorio that the clinic at World Literacy Crusade was an official Narconon enterprise. Narconon centers can’t operate unless they’re licensed by Scientology’s umbrella groups — Narconon International and the Association for Better Living and Education (ABLE).

“They wouldn’t be able to operate and send people to Arrowhead to train if they weren’t at least licensed by ABLE or Narconon International and in good standing,” Tenorio says.

Another former church official tells us that Hanan Islam’s clinic was specifically a special project of ABLE. We’ll have more on that soon.

For now, here are the charging documents for Hanan Islam, 56, two of her daughters and a son — Nimat Islam, 39, Zakiyyah Islam, 36, and Ronnie “Rizza” Islam, 25 — and two other clinic counselors, Bayon Beverly Washington, 42, and George Edward Newby III, 43.

Bonus photos from our tipsters

Here’s a fun photo that was posted to the official Instagram account of Minnesota Republican Erik Paulsen, representative for the 3rd congressional district, which covers the western suburbs of Minneapolis. In this shot, he’s chatting with OT 8 actress Marisol Nichols, who is telling him about the Scientology human rights front organization she’s pushing, Foundation for a Slavery Free World. We have a feeling that she’s not talking about how Scientology has children as young as six years old sign billion-year contracts with its Sea Org, and that even twelve-year-olds work 98-hour weekly schedules for pennies an hour, when they’re paid at all. But hey! Pretty woman! TV actress! Here’s what Paulsen posted about it: “Always a good conversation with @marisolnichols when discussing the best ways to combat trafficking. She’s doing amazing work through her organization, Foundation for a Slavery Free World, to protect children from this horrific crime.”

              This is what we need in the Bunker: A first-hand account of volunteer ministers’ “work.” Exes? Any experience with the VMs? Even if it’s positive?

            • Johnny Tank (Forever Autumn)

              I think Anette Iren Johansen was a VM for a short period. It’s been long since I’ve seen her here though.

            • Sherbet

              Yes, I’ve seen it, and it’s eye-opening, and I urge everyone to read it. But if the VMs are really helping (when they have some spare time around photo ops, that is), I’ll be the first one to keep my mouth shut about how useless they are. I’d like to hear from someone we know who has had first-hand experience with them.

            • daisy

    Marisol Nichols seems to be assigned to safe point pols. She has met with Sen Kirk, Rep Paulsen, and previously Utah AG Sean Reyes (Tony has a photo in http://tonyortega.org/2015/09/23/were-in-cleveland-today-to-talk-about-scientology-and-youre-invited/comment-page-2/). Probably has met with others as well.

    She formed Foundation for a Slavery Free World in June 1015 so they probably just got their nonprofit status, or it is pending, and it is too soon to see any reports on where the money is going. Seems like all the photos also have the Youth for Human Rights logo.

    It is hard to keep track of these front groups. If we can’t keep track, for sure the pols can’t – so a pretty actress wants to meet with them and they say yes. How do we get the word out to pols in general about these interlinked front groups?

    And lest you wonder … FSFW (http://umbraxenu.no-ip.biz/mediawiki/index.php/Category:Foundation_for_a_Slavery_Free_World shares offices with scilon sleaze balls Wiseman and Burke. https://markrathbun.wordpress.com/2012/09/25/learn-to-evade-tax-at-the-scientology-chapel/)

        Yes I did to Sean Reyes when it happened, never heard back, and to Paulsen today.

    I’m surprised with Paulsen. I always thought that Congressmen only talked to people from organizations with millions of dollars, which can help them get reelected, and were out of touch with the majority of American people…never mind.

    • 5 Feet Long and Luminous

      Ballard is a longtime member of the LDS church. I wonder if actually feels a kinship with Nichols, seeing her as another person from a sidelined faith that the country at large doesn’t understand and grossly exaggerates. I wonder if his eyes could be opened about the CoS if people were to put enough information in front of him.

  • Acherontia

    What’s the rule on drunk posting? OH WELL
    Jesus. This “rehab” shit they pull is disgusting. Pretty sick and pathetic to prey on people genuinely in need of help. Anyone here watch the Clive Owen cinemax show THE KNICK, about a hospital in NYC in 1900? They believed addiction was a moral failure and a sign of bad character. They seem to feel the same way and that their bullshit will fix it.

    Also today I saw an old friend who, upon my first watch of Going Clear, I texted my sister (who also is friends with this guy) with “HOLY SHIT TOMMY DAVIS AND *friend name* COULD BE TWINS OH GOD”

    That’s my sensible drunk posting for the day.

    • Sherbet

      That’s not drunk posting. Drunk posting is full of misspelled slurs and four-letter words about Kirstie Alley’s weight, John Travolta’s hair, and DM’s Little Thetan. You’re just not trying, Mothgirl.

            This was like 5-6ish years ago, and he was like 20 and I was 22. So young and stupid and young and stupider πŸ˜‰

    I’m wondering if any of the students have the right to make a civil suit against the church of scientology. I’m incredibly disheartened by the treatment of these students. And disgusted. I mean a sauna in a garage even. Could these people be treated like they were anything more than stats and money? Blech!

  • Observer

    refresh
    .

  • TOT: Edward called me a little around 4:30pm offering $10 to just come over and connect him with HP’s remote access. I laughed and said fine. Then I discover (I smartly drove there), that the woman, who barely spoke english, once we got connected via the remote session—-she could NOT tell him how to find the ‘run box’– was NOT gonna help him set up his laptop as they were suppose too. Oh hell no! First she removed everything on his desktop and then insisted she did not, I told her “I HAVE A CAMERA GOING, YOU DID IT” “oh no”. Then she goes into hp settings and I tell her she can’t be doing shit without telling us, what is she doing? “Updating BIOS” WHAT?!?!?!?!?!??!!? “I’m going to update BIOS to fix the system” “NOTHING NEEDS FIXED!! THE FUCK YOU ARE!!!” She wasn’t going to do any set up help AT ALL, just apparently fix something that wasn’t broke. She did NOT update the BIOS. I told eddie don’t let people fuck with bios, especially if they can’t even tell you where the run box is!!

    Then she claimed she would transfer us somewhere who could help him. Uh huh. Instead she kept listening to US talk about HER and interrupting us saying “I didn’t do that”. Yep, I lost my temper and called her a name and hung up. Called someone else, they say they are going to transfer us back to the SAME department he was just in! Oh hell no!!! Call the free set up # and get a Canadian! YEAH!!! So he’s reading the notes, and we discover that:

    The first set up call, Alice, on Tuesday, WRONGLY stated that she did things she did not do—I told the guy I had that call on video and could prove that was wrong on Alice’s part. Though I added Alice WAS nice, she just had no idea what she was doing and wasted our time.

    They have no record of my call Tuesday where they said they would give Eddie another FREE set up call–cuz OF COURSE.

    The BIOS UPDATE woman put in the notes that she told us she was transferring us to a PAID HELP LINE and we said OKAY to the charge. OH HELL NO!!! I told the guy I had that call on video too!! He asked if I had told her I was recording and I said yes I did and I was gonna upload it to youtube. He said–nicely—to be careful of HP’s attorneys, Eddie said “they should watch out for Tia” DAMN STRAIGHT!!!!! That woman was flat out LYING as was ALICE. The woman today pissed me off MORE than Alice.

    Of course they can’t give him another free set up call. Cuz OF COURSE NOT!!! I am NOT setting that damn thing up for him, as I DO NOT HAVE TIME!! I was about to sit down to work on some things when he called. And apparently, the free set up is done via a warranty company and then you pay after the first call—but no one ever said that and if the FREE call is worthless, why the fuck would you PAY for that shit??? Skittles knows more about computers than those people!!!! GAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I turned off the computercamera when I got off the phone with the Canadian but I should have kept it on cuz Edward and I started yelling when I asked for his USER name for XBOX live and he gave me his PASSWORD. No, I need the user name, what you put in before your password—I TOLD YOU, then he tells me the password. THE USER NAME IS NOT YOUR PASSWORD!!!!!!! YES IT IS!!! NO IT FUCKING IS NOT!!!!!

    I do have $10 though and he is BEYOND frustrated and fed up and really? right now after my week and this shit, that’s okay with me! πŸ™‚ Oh and good thing I drove cuz it’s SNOWING!!!

AFTER—-i go give Poli her pain meds, the snow/cold is making her whimper πŸ™

      ‘Helpdesk’ hell is hard to get away from. That sounds more like a variation on the ‘Hello, I am from Windows and you have a virus’ scam. Updating a bios is risky business, especially for a newbie. That should really be at a shop. Newbies can’t handle that stuff.

      • It was the HP person who wanted to mess with the BIOS, it didn’t need to be messed with and she had no answer as to WHY it should be messed with. I told her oh fuck no. Eddie knows enough to NOT get into things he’s never heard of before and if he saw the BIOS, he WOULD know he shouldn’t be there. Total credit to him there!!

        ALL he wants and needs is set up help—that is it; but they are unable to do that. They are giving away free nervous breakdowns though! πŸ™‚

      • LOL!!! πŸ˜€ I gotta go back down and clean up Martha and get a snack; but I’ll upload the video from today—probably will take awhile, I let it run for about an hour til I hung up on her. Then I gotta listen to it to ensure I covered the mic when I said a password or his phone # outloud. Other than that, yeah, I’m sure it’ll be funny to listen too πŸ™‚

        • Johnny Tank (Forever Autumn)

          Well, holla me back when you went ‘n’ done did it. I’ll be asleep by then, but it’d be fun to have somethin’ to watch before I gets up in the mornin’.

          • Might be a few…..the file was gonna take hours to upload as it’s HD and they take FOREVER, and I have to finish some things—hell one thing i’ve barely started and IT MUST GET FINISHED!!!! Then once it’s uploaded I have to listen to it entirely to: 1) Ensure I covered the mic when I said his phone # or a password and 2) denote the times/places that woman said/did not say particular things so I can inform HP at which points to really listen. The only thing I will edit out is if his phone # or a password can be heard. I think the camera mostly faced the laptop screen but you can me end up calling her a variety of names as I got very pissed and hear her claiming to transfer us but instead kept interrupting us as we talked about how she did not know what she was doing!!! πŸ˜€

            Gonna upload the first ‘set up’ call with Alice too. To FURTHER prove to HP that that dingbat did NOT do what she claimed to do and I know damn well I put the camera on the screen when I tried to ask google something that she claimed the laptop didn’t do and I KNEW it did she fucking KEPT BLOCKING ME!!!!!! Watch out HP, I’m gonna expose your shit!!!

        • beauty for ashes

          Seriously , even better than Korean soap opera! I sympathize, and know kinda at the same time that I probably would be just as frustrating as Eddie. Poor thing, Eat some Tam Tams!

          • Total credit to him, he waited over an HOUR before calling me last night—-and that was after an hour of not being able to get connected remotely because she could NOT speak clear english. I mean, if you’re going to have foreign tech support, please ensure people can understand them, ya know? And yes, I know he’s frustrated and I’m BEYOND pissed at HP (and disappointed) but this is also sort of partially his fault cuz he did NOT do what I said and 1) look up about Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 online first 2) Pay attention to when I said I HAVE THINGS TO DO 3) Let it fully sink in when I said he was ON HIS OWN setting that up. BUT—-a free set up call SHOULD have covered all that and it did not and they fucking LIED, oh that pisses me so off!!!!!!!!! Don’t mess with my peoples!!!!!!

            No more tim tams πŸ™ Had to fully give up dairy but it’s been worth it cuz my sinuses and ears are doing sooo much better!! Though my throat is KILLING ME TODAY probably due to an hour of almost yelling at that woman last night! πŸ˜€

            • beauty for ashes

              I hear lays potato chips are what singers swear by when they’re on the road. πŸ™‚ I am proud of you you can give up dairy. At one point I was almost vegan, gave up eggs but no cheese. Couldn’t do it!

            • I’m a VERY weird eater—and I don’t think I’ve bought something like Lay’s in the past 15+ years! Now if my air popper hadn’t died, I’d make some popcorn to nibble on. I like to snack on baby carrots–which as my dr. points out won’t help me gain weight. I eat nothing with HFCS or trans fats. Yes, I am one of the people who stand in the grocery store reading labels. πŸ™‚

              I LOVE cheese, ABSOLUTELY love it! This time of year I’d be partaking of those brie wheels in pastry, nom nom nom. But the difference it has made with my sinuses is sooooo huge, I can concede that it’s very detrimental to me, ya know? I have eggs in my fridge. If I could get to my toaster oven easily—I think there’s too much stuff in front of it right now—I’d have some scrambled eggs and toast for breakfast. I did get a bag of ground flax seed as I saw you can use that as an egg replacer in baking and I’d like to see how that works. The Earth Balance butter replacement sticks work perfectly in baking!!!

            • beauty for ashes

              I don’t think you are a weird eater. I wouldn’t buy real fat Lay’s either, although you know if they’re there I might eat them. I do eat a low/ no sugar diet for my dysautonomia, and it DOES help. I can tell when I eat sugar I feel like crap. Some things are worth it. πŸ™‚
              Ps~ I love flax too, used to put it on cottage cheese. Would also make a nice body scrub! I should put some in my apothecary.

      • I am NOT going back over there—famous last words, but I have 2 HUGE projects and a lot of little ones he has totally fucking hindered and THEY MUST GET DONE IN THE NEXT COUPLE DAYS—-but if I go over AFTER Christmas, I’ll remember my twitter password—or change it—-and I’ll log into periscope and LIVE STREAM a computer visit with edward! πŸ˜€ I can live stream from youtube too but I dunno if I can do that on a tablet…..so i’ll just periscope it!!!

    • TheMirrorThetan

      I wish you lived over here. Life would never be boring with you around, Miss Tia. πŸ™‚

    O/T .. I’m sorry for interrupting. Just wanted to give you an update.
    ( If you don’t know the story and want to read it I wrote it 18 hrs
    ago.. go to newest on yesterdays post and scroll down..)

    Went to
    Dr. today.. He took off bandage and said..” Fuck why in the hell is it
    still bleeding. ” Bandage was soaked with blood.. I can’t bend my hand
    at all.. I was again put on Antibiotics through an IV..and stayed about 3
    hrs.

    It is still a gaping wound with no healing. He told me to
    change my bandages tomorrow and put on the the SilverSorb..but it is
    bleeding through the bandage and I’m thinking I should change it.

    Just
    called Dr. and waiting for his advice. I ache for Coco..sigh..but no
    she’s in the right place. Weird vibe with the other dogs.

    Oh and I
    have a root canal on the 21st on an infected tooth..it was too infected
    to complete the procedure. Hubs kids just left ( I was a real pick me
    up with my going to the Dr. daily.. ) and another batch is coming next
    week. House looks like a Fraternity house.

    I woke up today and NO Electricity for Computer or TV. Just came on.

            • Baby

              Awwwww how cute.. Thanks Hole. It was one of the most painful decisions I’ve ever had to make. She is just the most precious baby girl. But the last bite was it. ( My hubby was fuming.) xo

          • daisy

            I read it I am just not sure about about Coco. I assume Baby is fostering dogs ( I didn’t know that ) and she had to tell them about biting so it cannot be rescued yes no ? So so sad when you love dogs. I LOVE Baby even more.

            • OOkpik

              Coco accidentally bit Baby while trying to get to Izzy. Baby required medical attention. Doctors are required by law to report dog bites to the Health Department.

              Baby made the painful decision to have a rescue group place Coco with someone with no other dog or children, so this type of thing wouldn’t happen again. Coco was immediately paired with a suitable new owner who adores her.

              Baby loves Coco but Coco was not willing to tolerate any competition from Izzy. Now they all have a chance to have more peace and safety.

              Heartbreaking as that decision has been, it was the right one and Baby was brave enough to make it.

            • daisy

              I am so glad. I thought they might put her down. It is hell giving up animals. Poor Baby. Maybe things will quiet down soon.

        • salin

          Since coco bit, she needs to be evaluated – which the rescue, I believe, can do.

        • Frodis73

          She had to surrender her dog to rescue because Coco cannot be with other dogs. She lost her dog. Coco will be placed in another home…a home where she is the only dog.

          • salin

            Thanks Frodis. Such a hard decision that needed to be made. But the only answer that could be made.

            Sometimes I wish we all lived on the same street and could just go over and support each other. Laugh , we would all hate each other in a week.

          • daisy

            Once the antibiotics kick in ( and they should soon IV ) the healing should go quickly. Take something for the pain. and try to sleep if you can. I am sorry this happened Baby, so hard to give up ones we love. It is incredible that you foster dogs.

    • TheHoleDoesNotExist

      Sounds awful – hoping for a miracle healing by christmas. If not, this has been my solution for everything this year:

      • Baby

        Hahaha.. Works for me.. ( My hubby would love to have that over my mouth right now..)

    • Free Minds, Free Hearts

      Oh no Baby, I just read your comment yesterday, I had missed it. I am so so sorry about your hand and also about Coco. Of course you are heartbroken but it sounds like she is in the right place.

      • Baby

        Oh thanks Free.. You are absolutely right.. I can sleep at night knowing she is in the place she was supposed to be.. xo

        • 5 Feet Long and Luminous

          Wait, there’s something about a dog?! I missed that, and I’m so sorry, but please, I don’t think I can handle the details if it’s really tragic. I’m with Science Doc on this. But whatever happened, I hope it ended up being for the best for all creatures involved–you included. ; )

          • Baby

            It is on yesterday’s post.. picture included.. : /

            My baby girl Shih Tu Coco bit my hand.. and I had to drive her 6 hrs.
            ( both ways) and drop her off to a rescue group.. sigh.. thank you 5

            • Coo Nellie

              Baby, sorry for the strange avi…can’t log in with my normal account. First, I’m so sorry for your pain and suffering! Second, strange thing occurred to me – did Coco ever wander around the yard, maybe gnaw on anything? It sounds almost like her saliva had another toxin in it from an outside source.

              I’m not at all a conspiracy type person, but I do try and see past the normal reasons for things. This just sounds like there was something else in her saliva that is causing you not to clot and heal.

              Okay, back to trying to decorate a tree before the family gets home. Unfortunately for them, I’ve had one glass of wine already ;).

              Big hugs and kisses!
              Coo

            • Baby

              Heh Coo.. Have fun decorating..hugs and kisses back..

              You know I don’t know.. She has a little fenced in area in the back yard.. and living on the Island we have many critters and a helicopter that flies around and sprays the groves.. Hmmm.. something to think about.

              They are mostly inside dogs though because of Fire ants, jiggers, etc.. Miss you..baby

            • Free Minds, Free Hearts

              Oh that is disturbing to think about. Hm. Baby you need a good doc.

            • Baby

              I’m wondering if I should go to an infection specialist..Free..

            • daisy

              The Dr. didn’t take a swab ? If he did and he should have,when the culture will come back sometimes you have to change antibiotics . Unlikely as he probably got you on a broad spectrum antibiotic. Just watch for increased redness, swelling or smell.

            • Free Minds, Free Hearts

              Baby I think that might be smart – especially since it is still not healing, and even bleeding.

            • 5 Feet Long and Luminous

              Aw, no, I missed that post. So that’s why your hand’s all messed up. I’m so sorry that happened. What a terrible situation all around. OK, it’s official: 2015 can go fuck itself.

    • Cosmo Pidgeon

      Wish you the best.

      • Baby

        Thanks Cosmo.. I hope the best comes soon!

    • 5 Feet Long and Luminous

      Geez Louise, Baby, 2015 needs to let up on you already! Good thing it’ll be out the door soon. Healing holiday vibes to you!

      • Baby

        OMG 5.. I will celebrating 2016 with all of you.. It’s a tradition for me. Good bye 2015.. adios..

        and I can’t even ride my New Motorcycle.. wah, wah, wah.. Hope my hand will bend one day so I can still brake.

        • 5 Feet Long and Luminous

          Aw, man, shiny new bike and you can’t even ride? Yep, you definitely need to stick a fork in 2015’s eye and be done with it. I hope your hand’s well enough by NYE so that you can celebrate doing donuts. Hang in there, B!

          • Baby

            Thanks 5.. Yep.. it’s all shiny and taunting me under the cover in the back.. errrrrrrrrgh.. I hope I haven’t done permanent nerve damage so that I can eventually bend my hand.

    • Missionary Kid

      The infected tooth probably already had your body fighting that battle, then, with the dog bite, that was another.

      Suggestion: Play the sympathy card, and ask everyone to help you out because you are sick. That means cleaning up, cooking (or taking you out to dinner), etc. They won’t do everything you want the way you want, and you’ll find stuff in the “wrong” place, but you’ll do a lot better.

      They can change the sheets & do laundry before they go, too. If everyone pitches in, it won’t take up much time. It’ll also make them appreciate you more, IMO.

      Many hands make like work. (As someone said on a church work crew I was on.) Being the wise ass that I am, I came back with, “Too many cooks spoil the broth.”

      • daisy

        Hey Kid I have the sniffles how close are you? I love the way you think.

        • Missionary Kid

          I live fairly close to Palm Springs, CA. Is that too far?

          That way of thinking comes from years of laziness, as well as being involved with groups where everyone pitches in, and everything gets cleaned up rapidly, with little work for each person.

      • Baby

        Will you marry me? I’ve had all my shots.

        • Missionary Kid

          I can’t. I’ve got a wife and six kids.
          I’m only 17, and living in my parent’s basement.
          I’m already betrothed to Vaquera (she probably forgot)
          What will Mr. Baby say?

          Pick one. πŸ˜€

          • Baby

            OK you had me at 6 kids..Plus Vaquera is from Texas and probably carries a gun..

            The way I’ve been acting lately Mr. Baby would say..” Make sure she takes her Paxil ! ” hahha

    • Illinoisian

      Oh, Baby! Playing ‘catch up’ here with the comments and just read your comment from yesterday. So sorry and worried about you. Sending support and good thoughts. Missionary Kid is right. Get help and make time to just rest — and let the healing/immune system kick in and do its job. Slow down, breathe deeply, relax and know that we are all holding you in our thoughts.

      • Baby

    • daisy

      Hi Baby — Just catching up on the news. Saw picture of your wound. I am sure that it hurt like hell. Hoping you are better now. I have be sending up prayers for your hurt heart. It truly is for the best. Coco will have so much less anxiety living in a less busy household. It takes so little time for them to become family and when they leave it is heartbreaking. If I have missed some of your posts, I am sorry. Take care, I will keep sending positive thoughts and prayers. If you are atheist the prayers are for me, so I can feel like I am helping.

  • Science Doc

    I’ve been tied up the past few day with Drs. appointments and moving stuff around, but I’m about to settle back down for a few days. Just wanted to say that I think the story Tony has been breaking on Narconon/NOI may be hugely significant, and it’s great that he broke it before the LA Times, which is living in San Bernardino and camping out on Sumner Redstone’s front yard these days.

    I’ll have a couple little stories to tell maybe tomorrow, including an old friend’s recent account of having his family targeted by a Mormon Blow Drill, some Narconon photos, and maybe a recent X-ray that graphically depicts back pain.

    • salin

      Always good to see you. Trust the Drs appointments brought good/healing reports.

      Look forward to reading/seeing what you have to share. Items sound worth waiting for. Don’t over push – you have given us some tantalization – now we have to be patient.

    • Baby

      You’ve been through the wringer Doc.. I am so sorry.. My wound seems insignificant in comparison. Looking forward to reading your stories. Only hope that 2016 will bring nothing but the best for you!

      love baby

      • Science Doc

        No no Baby. You also have a tragedy involving an animal, and I can’t handle those. I just found out that my 16 year old cat is starting kidney failure.

        • daisy

          Oh I am so sorry Doc. that is so hard. 2015 is kicking your ass too. 2016 has to bring better times.

        • Baby

          Doc.. I am so sorry about your cat honey… Never discount what you have been through you are a trooper.. Good Lord.. Very scary situation.

          thank you .. we ARE bunker strong..and Damnit.. I am crying again. I just wish ONE day I wouldn’t cry on the Bunker..but invariably I do..

          IT’S ALL TONY’S FAULT!

        • 5 Feet Long and Luminous

          Ugh, Doc, I’m so sorry. I feel for you. It’s so hard when time starts catching up to your 4-legged companions. I hope there are plenty of good times still ahead for the two of you…

  • Patty Moher

    I’m not sure this has come up but woman next to Marisa looks like Sylvia Standard. The DSA of DC org.

    • Very strong possibility. Sylvia Stanard’s (?) pic to compare.

      • salin

        Looks like the same person. And it would make sense if the photo was taken from the Congressman’s DC office.

        • If this is her, there will be some major lulz soon.

          • salin

            Certainly makes it harder to deny the link between the front group and the group (and the habit of shilling for fronts.)

          One’s success in life increases significantly with one’s ability to communicate. Good communication can resolve just about any problem or situation. The very ability to communicate is addressed here by a long series of processes.

          The end product of this processing is: “Client capable of communicating to anyone about any subject.”

          • daisy

            I am not sure what you are saying. Should I try to understand her ? If that is what she was trying to say , then just say that and wrap it up.

            • Robert Eckert

              That’s the promise Scientology makes for the “Communication Course”, which is the first thing raw meat is usually suckered into buying. Yeah, they sure come out of it able to communicate to anybody about anything– not.

      • daisy

        I made it through. Lying liars who lie. I have no idea who this woman is, but I dislike her more than usual. maybe my mood. I would like to slap her.

        • beauty for ashes

          This was a memorable day when this was posted. That was a pretty common reaction.

      • StudentOfLife

        I actually watched this entire video. She is totally evasive. What a liar! She claims the Xenu story is not in any of the 18 books or 4000 lectures she’s seen in her 39 years. That is totally evasive. 22 veteran suicides a day? She claims that the majority of them were on 15 or more drugs: My Pre-Clear friend (the one I thought was OT2) made the exact came claim she did. LA Times looked at this statistic: “About 72% of veterans are at least 50. It is not surprising, then, that the VA found that people in this age group account for 69% of veteran suicides β€” or more than 15 of the 22 per day.”
        The Times adjusted the non-veteran death rates so they reflected the age and gender mix of the veteran population.

        LA Times excerpt: As the story explained, suicide and accident rates were substantially higher for veterans. Over the six years examined by The Times, 329 California veterans under 35 took their own lives. That amounts to an average annual rate of 27 suicides per 100,000 veterans.

        If that rate were to hold true across the country, about 530 young veterans are committing suicide each year β€” roughly 1.5 each day.

        That’s probably an underestimate, because there are regional variations in suicide and California tends to fall on the low side. But in talking about the aftermath of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, it’s far closer to reality than 22 each day.

      • seriouslyWTF

        To be honest with you, I can’t think of a time when I argued with my mother. She is and has always been the most easy going person I have ever known. Wow moment for me. Never really thought about it before.

      I would say Positive it is her Patty..

      Now I don’t know after Dodo posted his picture..hmmmmmm

    • Also, if it’s her, she is not just DSA, but also “deputy director of the Church of Scientology’s National Affairs Office” apparently, which is like Operation Snow White 2.0 OSA operative.

    • Now, after watching some vids, I don’t think it’s Sylvia with Marisol and Representative.
      But she sure looks like another OSA (?) lady I posted below.

      Beautiful wish Dodo, I second this. May your weekend be the same.

    • salin

      Dodo, I wish I could. Can’t right now. Grief lifts, briefly, mostly when soldiering through the present on tasks that are not directly tied to the person being grieved. But, your kind words, made me think of when there were carefree moments in the past year – and going back a few months earlier – a couple of weeks of mostly carefree – when we visited family in Norway – on a ‘spontaneous’ trip, what a great space of life – full of carefree-ness. Think I am going to spend time revisiting those memories to recapture the carefree – and hold on to those, and other memories, until the grief starts to subside. Then – I will work for the care free child spirit – in the present.

      Wouldn’t have gone down that train of thought without your words. Thanks. And I look forward to when care-free moments flood back into my present life.

      To other Bunkers – embrace Dodos advice. It is great advice to live by.

      • In time, the grief will transmute to loving memories and carefree will return, but the grief is important now. It’s the measure of how much you love your mom. That love is yours for life. And yes, I’ll do my best to follow the Dodo’s wise words.

      • Juicer77

  • Coo Nellie

    Sort of OT: First, darned Disgust, I cannot log in as my regular self.
    Second, Baby C went to Powell’s to buy Xmas gifts and she looked at the Staff Favorites. She told me that three of the picks were by LRH. Okay, so I know there are whales in Portland, but really….in Powell’s? Sigh.
    Third, there are so many here that I really do love. I’m not sure how it happened, but it’s true. To those I love and to those whose I don’t know yet, I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!

    • salin

      How strange that 3 picks would be from an author who has not been writing for 30 years. Sounds like someone had a bit of undue influence. There are many great authors of that era like Steinbeck, and Hemmingway, but given fleeting tastes, I would be just as shocked to see either author have so many staff favorite picks. Shared sigh.

      Wishing you a warm and embracing holiday season – and a magnificent start to a great new year.

      • Coo Nellie

        Thank Salin! I hope you can find joy this Christmas, in whatever form it presents itself. A big hug!

    • Dave Reams

      Powells? Really? Which one? Beaverton, SE, or downtown? I have to go down.and see for myself : ( Do they have a display with the actual books? Does the copy of Dianetics fall open to the page bearing “… fetus traumatized by mother masturbating violently with many fingers” ?

      • Coo Nellie

        I think Baby C went to the Beaverton one (Cedar Mill ?). I asked about the books being displayed and I think it was just the list, although now that you ask, I remember Baby C saying something along the lines of why would anyone pay $25 for Dianetics.

        • Dave Reams

          Powells, long ago on Burnside, used to have a cardboard box outside the door filled with free books that they could’nt sell … like Dianetics!

          Speaking of Dianetics, it as well as Child Dianetics are availlable online for free in nice PDF documents (although I fear they won’t be for long now that I have alerted the OSA: ( These are both the original editions I believe. Dianetics has a long Hubbardian style afterword appendix by Nuclear Scientist Joseph Campbell on “The scientific method” which is laughably misguided and out of place here!

  • Wow! My camera always seems to hate the Toronto Org, but the camera in my tablet needs professional counseling. (Either that or it sees the building as it really is.)
    ..

    • I’d have to see it in daylight to be sure, but from an angle, it was obvious that a number of panes of glass had been replaced with bits of white and black plastic, and not just as added insulation. Others have been taped up like crazy.

      Possibly it’s due to vandalism (it’s been graffiti-tagged inside the building), but possibly due to basic structural flaws dating back to construction of the building β€” strong winds cause sway that cracks the windows and brick facade.

      Still no city permit to do any renovations.

      • ReallyMGM

        Is it supposed to be occupied? It is scary and forbidding looking to me!

        • It’s been vacant for three years. The last half-hearted attempt to get a renovation permit was a year ago. Meanwhile, the condo towers are rising. It was a fair-sized building when the street was two and three story shops and apartments, but soon it will be tiny.

    More thoughts on the good DOCTOR…the income tax filing charge is not a case of her filing an incorrect amount, but not filing AT ALL for several years. Easily confirmed by the prosecutor what she did or didn’t do.

    She has a long history of taking money from the US goverment to provide services to poor citizens, then not providing the service. Reading about the charter schools in FL is sickening, now the coaches steering their students into these programs for their financial gain.

    (Were these students wards of the state of California, or did they have parental permission, Tony?)

    I have found one consistent thing reading about the DOCTOR. Whenever the she is caught, she turns the arguments and accusations back on the accusers quickly.
    The Rev. And Dr. Seem to run the scams with her family helping along. I have speculated Alfreddie will be indicted, but it is nothing but speculation and a wish.

    My rambling Sat morning thoughts. I wish I could shake the bronchitis so I could sleep at night!

    ETA: This is one of the most amazing stories to have the Bunker since I’ve started reading. Think this one is going somwhere. VERY well reported.

      Well said ReallyMGM.

      I’m up early for the same reason. Been on antibiotics off and on for weeks. Just finished a Zpac too. Hot steamy showers help, lots of water, juice, tea, decaf or whatever…just plenty of it. Today I’m gonna watch a marathon of the last season of House of Cards, stay in pj’s and go nowhere. Hope you feel better soon.

      “she turns the arguments and accusations back on the accusers” Never attack, always defend! Or is that the other way around?

    Involving public education folk was one of the dumbest, most self-destructive actions that DM has done….. he learned nothing from the narconon drug education debacle.

    I will say it again, He is obsessed with public education and obsessions lead to poor decision-making.
