We have a real treat for our regular readers today, particularly those of you who enjoy our “Sunday Funnies.”
Over the years, we’ve become very familiar with Scientology’s marketing methods, so when something different comes along, it can really get our attention. One of the best examples is the energy and fun of Scotland [...]
The Underground Bunker has learned that a multi-county Oklahoma state grand jury has been empaneled to look into criminal insurance fraud allegations against Scientology’s flagship drug rehab facility, Narconon Arrowhead.
Scientology’s celebrities — Tom Cruise, John Travolta, and Kirstie Alley — have each promoted Scientology’s drug rehab network, Narconon, as a model program. [...]
In the fall of 2012, Mary Jane Sterne couldn’t have been any prouder. Her daughter, Samantha Paige Sterne, was beginning her first semester as a freshman at the University of Oregon. Samantha’s older sister Brittaney — Mary Jane’s daughter from a previous marriage — was on hand, and so was her ex-husband Chuck Sterne, [...]
Yesterday, we mentioned that there’s been something of a baby boom among former Scientology officials who left the church in a small wave in the last several years.
We thought we’d follow up on that by pointing out that leaving the Church of Scientology appears to be very beneficial for the people who accomplish [...]
We can’t get enough of Scientology success stories, and this newest video, gushing about the ‘Golden Age of Tech Phase II,’ is one of the best we’ve ever seen.

Yes, our tipsters are amazing, and we are grateful that they take the chances necessary to bring us this amazing material.
We have, in the past, marveled at amazing examples of Scientology [...]
Amy Nicholson is the film reviewer for LA Weekly and she is disappointed that Tom Cruise is not the movie star that he once was.
OK, fair enough. But Nicholson doesn’t bemoan Cruise’s choice of movie projects. She wants to place the blame on us — the Internet consumers who ruined Tom’s career because we [...]
We can’t believe it’s been nearly five years since we first talked to Marc Headley about his book, Blown for Good. A gripping read, the book describes Headley’s experience growing up in Scientology and becoming a worker at the church’s secretive International Base east of Los Angeles, where he became a guinea pig for Tom [...]
We had some difficulty hearing former Scientologist Micheal Leonard Tilse speak at last week’s Flag Down conference over its live feed. But he’s loud and clear in a new clip that Mark Bunker is making public from his upcoming documentary, ‘Knowledge Report.’
In the clip, Tilse tells us about a remarkable moment in church history [...]
