About a month ago, our Florida correspondent “L. Wrong” spotted an interesting sight. Outside of the Hubbard Dianetics Foundation in Orlando, a “For Rent” sign had sprung up.
We’re actually surprised that more Scientology outlets haven’t gone belly-up, considering the sharp drop in activity at them around the world. But here was some visual […]
Actor Jim Carrey and his girlfriend Cathriona White were spotted in New York earlier this year after the couple apparently started dating again following a breakup.

Scientology has its soul duds on! These young staff members are in place in Harlem for tomorrow’s big block party, as David Miscavige opens yet another Ideal Org.
We’re very disappointed that we won’t be on the scene because of other obligations. We’d love to know if there are any New York correspondents […]
It was late summer 2005. That much our sources agree on. It might have been late August, or it might have been early September. But it was a full ten years ago, say our eyewitness sources, that Shelly Miscavige vanished.

For several years, we’ve posted fliers from Scientology’s many events that are put on by barnstorming “OT” ambassadors out to sell something to compliant church members. But it’s not very often that we get a report on what it’s like to attend such a gathering.
A couple of years ago, we were fortunate to hear […]
We had a lot of fun on Monday revisiting perhaps the high point in the careers of Scientology leader David Miscavige and his actor-lieutenant, Tom Cruise, when they opened a new church in Madrid in 2004. Since then, the two have been battered and bruised with years of brutal press accounts of how Miscavige physically […]
Jeffrey Augustine continues with part two of his podcast with Aaron Smith-Levin. He sent us this synopsis…
In Part 2, Aaron Smith-Levin continues his fascinating and wide-ranging excursion into the world of Scientology from the eyes of a Sea Org member. Aaron opens by describing how he realized that the highly dysfunctional operating conditions of […]
Back on July 2, your proprietor asked his colleagues for some help. Star magazine had announced that Tom Cruise was leaving Scientology, and we thought it was awfully convenient for the story to come out just a few weeks before the press circus around Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation starts up. Now, with […]
We’re continuing our book tour in California, but here’s an event that we didn’t publicly advertise — a gathering at the home of Spanky Taylor with many of the folks we’ve written about over the years, as well as some people we’ve only heard about and hope become our sources for new investigations.
