Sneaky Scientology finds another way to get access to high school students

Dorsey High School

Dorsey High School

We’ve said it before: Scientology never gives up. With its public image at an all-time low, the sneaky organization continues to infiltrate where it can with the use of its front groups and stealthy operatives.

One of our vigilant tipsters noticed that Scientologists have wormed their way into an anti-gang conference happening next week at a Los Angeles high school.

It’s called the National Unity Summit, which we hadn’t heard of. The organization has a rather rustic website with some interesting ideas about spelling, and the event appears to be the creation of a Dr. Gregory Tatum. Here’s how he explains the event:

“The vision of the National Unity Summit is to study the division of communities by gang and territorial control that has ruined our communities in this nation over many decades…We will use former gang members and at-risk youths to help reach some of our objectives. We will solicit the help of parents, pastors, teachers and community leaders, no stone will be left un-turn. This is a move of God call by God to help stop our youth from acts of violence in this nation, join us in this vision.”

Here’s the disastrous flier that goes with it…

 
NationalUnity

 
Our tipster gave us this rundown on the event…

A National Unity Summit will be held on Saturday, September 27, 2014, at Dorsey High School in Los Angeles.

Scientology is heavily involved — but only through its front groups. The Way To Happiness and Foundation for a Drug-Free World are sponsors.

Another Scientology front group, United for Human Rights, is involved

Scientology spokesman Bob Adams is speaking, but his connection to the church isn’t mentioned.

Another person listed as a speaker is Rizza Islam. I knew Rizza was International Ambassador at the World Literacy Crusade, as well as youth minister at Reverend Alfreddie Johnson’s True Faith “Christian” Center. I didn’t know Rizza also “works as the director of museum promotion for the Citizens Commission on Human Rights International.” That must be a new gig.

Those are just the organizations and names I recognize off the top of my head. Several things strike me about this. First, Scientology is using a very stealthy approach. The word ‘Scientology’ does not appear anywhere (though Rizza admits he trained at Hubbard College as a Course Administrator). Second, it appears that the overwhelming number of speakers are not related to Scientology and are legitimate. Many appear to be from Christian organizations.

Third, and this is related to the two points above, Scientology’s approach is more subtle and sophisticated than I’m used to seeing. To my recollection, anytime Scientology has been involved in an event like this, it has controlled and dominated the event — even through its front groups. That does not appear to be the case here. This is much more in line with Hubbard’s instruction to penetrate, not overwhelm. Fourth, this is further evidence of Scientology’s attempts to make inroads in the African-American community, and to do so in a very stealthy, camouflaged and, yes, sophisticated manner.

Other speakers with connections to Scientology: Tekela Scott. Bishop Franklin Harris, whose bio indicates that he provides Way to Happiness workshops at Scientology’s Inglewood Community Center. John Redman, executive director of California for Drug-Free Youth. And Bishop Foley Parker, who works with the Foundation for a Drug-Free World.

It appears another sponsor, Crossover Outreach, is also a Scientology front group or perhaps, more precisely, a front group of a front group. Crossover Outreach links to United for Human Rights. Crossover also announced its alliance with California for Drug-Free Youth.

A final observation. When I look at the Featured Guests page, I have to admit that Scientology appears to be making important alliances. Featured speakers include Dr. Cecil Murray, former pastor of the First AME Church in Los Angeles and current professor at USC. The Church of Scientology has played this very smart.

Thanks for that interesting rundown, tipster.

      beautiful Dodo.. Wow..

      • DodoTheLaser

        Thank you. I am just a semi-creative messenger.

        • SamSanAntonio

          More than semi, DT Laser.

    • Sydjazz

      Lovely

  • Baby

    JUST STOP.. Yaw’ll makin fools of yourself.

    • Just Dee

      I wish I could agree with you Baby, I really do. Unfortunately, it looks like they are getting away with it. For now….

      • Baby

        Not for long Dee… ; )

  • This story brings to mind a much similar attempt in the Netherlands, about which I left this comment a few days ago..

    Anyways, the Dutch chapter of CCHR actually did manage to get some positive media attention this week, or at least.. sort of. They provided a third party with relatively polished promotional material and that campaign group carefully hid the cult’s contribution. This lead to a CCHR video getting quite a bit of airtime on TV and radio this week. And even though CCHR and Scientology weren’t mentioned, it’s still a win from the point of view of the cult. Moreover, they managed to snag a Belgium government organization into voicing their support (who of course have been given a heads up).

    I am mentioning this here, because of Scientology being Scientology, they will try to replicate this elsewheres


    As a small update, said Belgium government organization was not amused at all and are following up on it including warning their Dutch counterpart, who also turned out to be supporting the campaign.

    • richelieu jr

      Yes, these ‘Heads Up’s should not be under-estimated, folks. Just a polite letter asking if they were openly informed that so-and-so or their group is Scientology front organization (with links or literature, not just assertions) can do the trick.

      No need to insist; If some functionary just stuck their neck out under false pretenses, they won’t be timid about refusing to do it a second time.

      Yep Man and Wife

      • Sejanus

        $cientology. Is a selfish lover and a sneaky rapist.

        • richelieu jr

          Yes, with Scientology it’s always “The True ‘Clear’ State is coming on the next level!'”, the ‘Refund Check is in the Mail’ and ‘We won’t come in your… home at 3am to regg the hell out of you.’…

      • Juicer77

        (edit: Husband and Wife …. doesn’t “Woman and husband” sound silly too? as if the “married” half is an appendage of some sort 😉

        • Robert Eckert

          Fun fact: Old Testament Hebrew has no word for “wife”, just ishah “woman” (wherever King James has “his wife” the original just has “his woman”), and the word for “husband”, ba’al, is the same as the word for “owner” (also used for a “landlord” or in phrases describing someone as having a particular property, “owner of dreams” for “dreamer” etc.)

        • Baby

          haha.. Yes.. I was so tired I threw it down.. xo

        • richelieu jr

          In French we have the same word for ‘Wife’ and ‘Woman’:

          Femme.

          Thena gain, we call Boyfriends and Girlfriends our ‘Little Friends’ like they were living in our pockets.

          “Are you married, Miss?”

          “No, but I do have a Little Friend!” She smiles as a little Marcel Marceau-type guy in a striped tunic climbs out of her pocket smiling and extends his tiny little hand to shake your pinky. “Isn’t he adorable?”

  • DodoTheLaser

    When I was in:

    – I met with one of the European Human Rights directors, he politely listened to me and took the PR book
    – I arranged The Way To Happiness book to be placed in the office of the country’s top cop
    – I had a meeting with the guy in charge of all the prisons and he took my words and materials
    – I went to schools and universities and talked to teachers and hundreds kids about harmful drugs

    And I did it for free. As a scientologist. I would like to believe that I made some positive difference, if any. I doubt I did. May be just with some of those kids regarding drugs. But I also wish none of it was associated with scientology, since it ultimately is a scam that uses people of good will to form the front groups as a PR protection, in order to distract others from the cold-hearted money-making con, aka – imaginary Clear and OT levels that even Hubbard did not achieve.

    With that said, if you are a scientologist, thank you for trying to help the society, but you might be a lot more effective doing it with any other truly non-profit humanitarian organization. Google is your friend. And so we are.

    Sorry for the run-on sentences and/or other grammatical errors.

    • Mark Foster

      Even the ¨scientology solutions¨ , when they are not a re-casting of common sense (e.g. the way to happiness),
      are destructive: scientology ethics, scientology auditing, scientology(choke, puke) ¨cosmology¨ , scientology ¨admin policy¨ . The LAST thing ANY community needs is this group and its ¨solutions¨ !

      • DodoTheLaser

        I agree 100%, Mark. All the common sense “good stuff” is an introduction bait.

      • Baby

        Oh Mark.. How could you forget Touch Assists?

        • Mark Foster

          I could really dip into the gutter with that one, but i shall refrain 🙂

          • Baby

            Yeah.. It’s just too easy.. ha

    • chuckbeattyexseaorg75to03

      If the local “OT Committee” of a city set up a weekly free meal for poor people, that would get more local support than ANYTHING Scientology has done in Scientology’s history!

      Rather than what Scientologists do, their in house fund raising for IAS and their own church building, if Scientologists rather did some income gathering of themselves to fund a soup kitchen meal for ONE night a week, would be MORE than Scientology’s ever done in their history!

      • richelieu jr

        Sure hasn’t hurt the Krishnas who get a lot of people to hear them, stop fearing/mocking them, and to see that a vegetarian lifestyle can be healthy and tasty at the same time.

        • Mark Foster

          In the 80´s, when I lived in St. Louis, they had a 5-dollar-all-you-can-eat (within reason!) vegetarian buffet that was consistently excellent.

          • richelieu jr

            Ive had pretty much the same in LA, Denver, London and Paris…

            By contrast, when we played the Celeb Centre in LA, they took pure equipment and said they wouldnt give it back until he end of the evening, and their ‘presentation’. I had to call the cops (well, I tired across the street, and suddenly they came and got me and gave it back)…
            So, pretty much the same experience.

    • And I don’t rent cars!

      “Sorry for the run-on sentences and/or other grammatical errors.”

      Dodo, although off topic, I feel compelled to say this to you. Please do not feel you have to apologize nor second guess yourself when you write. You are a great communicator, and a much beloved one at that! We all need to keep in mind that English is a second language for a lot of people who comment here, as it is for you – not that we could tell from your posts. In fact, IIRC, you might even be multilingual! And how many people can claim that?

      I saw when our resident, self-appointed Grammar Nazi attacked you the other day and I’m still fuming about it. It was uncalled for and terribly arrogant. The added “threat” to the rest of the Bunker about the use of proper English rules of grammar and punctuation was unnecessary, inappropriate and, IMO, unforgivable.

      The way I view it, language rules are guidelines for communication but they do not guarantee effective communication. If the message is conveyed and clearly understood, that’s all that matters. These rules are also fluid, flexible, and bendable, especially in the arts but especially these days of social media when mixed and rapidly changing technologies are the primary means for our informal communication exchanges. To be blunt about it all, I say, “Fuck it, because I got it!” meaning I understood you and your message. In my world view, rules are meant to be broken anyway, as that’s one of the means for creative expression, in all forms and formats, and one of the ways we can create change through the exchange of new and fresh perspectives, ideas, products, etc.

      Also, tolerance and civility is part of what allows the Bunker comment section to distinguish itself from most other online communities. These qualities are also the barest minimum our Proprietor, who prefers to keep a hands off approach to his comment section, except to apply the banhammer when needed, insists we use to inform and shape our comments and replies to each other. These qualities were certainly missing in the OP to you.

      All this to say, Dodo, please don’t let that offensive comment influence the content or quantity of your posts or the frequency of your presence here. Jeesh, all the fuss over a typo – a friggin’ misplaced apostrophe!

      Sorry for the rant. It is written out of concern for you and what I perceive as an injustice toward you.

      • L. Wrong Hubturd

        x1000. Keep “talking” Dodo. We love ya here.

      • Todd Tomorrow

        I agree!!! You’re the best,DoDo.

      • Baby

        WE LOVE OUR DODO… Plus he’s cute.. That doesn’t hurt (ha)

      • richelieu jr

        As fellow non-native speaker, I would just like to say that I honestly appreciate constructive correction, etc (I do ant to perfect my English, after all, not constantly repeat the same errors!), but Grammar Nazis can Sick my Duck.

        • And I don’t rent cars!

          Yeah, I would love to be corrected, too. I’ve even thought of making a general appeal for help, with anyone who wanted to take the time to go right ahead and critique or edit what I write.

          What was said to Dodo was just plain nasty, out of line, and cowardly, as he was made a scapegoat for a general pissy bitch that was actually directed at everyone in general.

          • richelieu jr

            Sheesh, gad I missed that one, I guess.

            What did they say exactly? I’ve run into people who are like ‘YOUC NA’T DANGLE A MODIFIER!!!! WFT!!!?’ but it didn’t seem really personal to me;..

        • Mark Foster

          Ah, you and your…duck… réveillé !

          • richelieu jr

            Yes, I never stop thinking and talking about my damn duck!

    • Cosmo Pidgeon

      Thanks Dodo….you show that not every Scientologist has evil intentions or is even aware of what they are protecting. I did volunteer work for the GO. I thought I was helping the world. But yeah it would have been better to stay in school, learn how to do something useful and then use that to help the world and not a small fanatic cult that really never accomplishes much except anxiety , wasted youth and broken families. Oh yeah and the money. I never had much so they couldn’t take it. All they got was my youth and dedication and took a chunk out of my life. But I did stop with the drugs, I was never an addict, but kept with the alcohol to keep my head straight.

  • Mark Foster

    This story really pisses me off. This is a VERY painful issue…And…these motherfuckers, with their pseudo-science conjured by a pill-popping, racist, greedy liar, want to weasel their way in to the black community…

          Hubbard was so crank, he unfortunately made rules for his followers to follow and become sitting ducks for criticism, walled off as stubbornly as Hubbard was himself.

          Hubbard’s lack of self criticism transferred to the movement, and they are stuck with all that Hubbard failed to see in himself and failed to see wrong with his own behavior, they have it now!

        Don’t forget the tapes! Hear Hubbard imitate a poor ‘negro’ so ‘close to the earth’ he talks to hats ‘How do dat, Hat?” (recalled from memory)

        Hear his fine ear for dialects as every black person he ever quotes speaks not only like Amos, but also Andy!

        Listen as he explains why tribes people are so easily hypnotized and why blacks are unable to lead themselves.

        What’s the matter in South Africa? Zimbabwe? Rhodesia? The color of the answer might surprise you (but probably not)!

      Scientology is so bad for using people’s good motives.

      If Scientology actually put some money out, to do good in society, not just reach out so as to look good for their in house self promoting PR reasons, but if Scientology actually spent a good chunk of money, that’d be to me such an obvious correct thing for them to do and gain them real legitimate respect.

      Scientology has so far in history not spent their money in a proper way to help society.

      They do these devious PR efforts on the cheap to make themselves look good to themselves (at their events where they claim they are doing good).

      Scientology has to spend some of their money to actually do some good.

      • L.Ron Hubbard
        • chuckbeattyexseaorg75to03

          For such media well covered subject now, Scientology ought to take this moment in history to change into what the world expects of a religion.

          Scientology seems to have reached this status quo losing enough ex members to leave this trail of shocking history that makes it into a continuing news item only, and as a new religion they genuinely are doing nothing to help the world.

          They lie so baldly about helping and saving the world and the universe, it’s really a long term sad delusional mindset that is really in the end of the day sold to their members, and it takes the members years to come out of that delusional mindset.

          They are selling a mindset that falsely supports it’s own delusion causing the outside world to slip away from their minds!

          I don’t know if they’ll die, they seem to have made this status quo of idiocy for their followers, they seem to earn enough money off their dupes/marks to keep their irreligious patterns going.

          They’ve always had their empty feeder “orgs” and tiny mission churches and “field groups” to appear at least legitimate on the books.

          Their status quo delusional world of themselves is normal and always has been.

          A good crank can get his flock thinking his way!

      • valshifter

        Luis Farrakhan and the NOI don’t see it that way, I wonder why? but is very clear as you stated above, the old fart was racist. and they only seek the black community because they need slaves to work for free on their orgs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z3tLkFuw_Zk

        • chuckbeattyexseaorg75to03

          00:01 man with yellow tie is reason enough to walk away from NOI. Looks to kill are written all over his body guard zealot face.

          01:01 Farrakhan’s nutcase outburst would make me walk out and hopefully yellow tie man wouldn’t chase me down and get me!

          01:30 red epaulet man to the right looks like the next most threatening enforcer zealot to come on the scene after that break in the camera shift to long shot. I wonder what happened to yellow tie man?

          Nation of Islam looks like abused cult control tactics on full display!

          The scary outbursts of threatening preacher domination method on full display, with the hit squad body guard zealots prominently right behind Farrakhan.

          This endorcement of Dianetics/Scientology is par for a crank endorsing another crank!

            Look at the size of that audience – there are more people just on the stage than there are at clam rallies these days. I’ll bet Tiny Dick Miscavige would just love to have that many people turn up for Him.

      • Lady Squash

        Chuck, sadly that will not happen. Doing good isn’t in their wheel house. Only pretending to do good. That goes along with pretending to be a religion and pretending to have the only workable technology on the planet. But “actually” doing good. I don’t think that’s going to happen.

      Ferguson is still reeling, the media of course no longer cares.
      And just two weeks ago in my town a black man shot and killed another black man.
      Neighbours and witnesses wouldn’t talk. Police shrugged and walked away. BECAUSE the do not GIVE A SHIT.

      You forgot to mention that Hubbard supported the Apartheid government in South Africa.

    • Via Nation of Islam they’re apparently doing an effective job of it, weasel-wise. Calypso Louie (former stage name of Farrakhan) seems as effective of convincing his people of outright insanities as Hubbard was.

    • joan nieman

      You make a good argument there Mark. Hubbard was an ignorant racist and for scientology to even be involved with anything at all. it is for their own cause. They want new recruits and more money.

      Mark, all I can say is channel that anger into action. Continue to inform members of the black community of Scientology’s attempts to infiltrate, manipulate and profit from the real-life problems that they’re facing. Encourage them to look beyond the surface sentiments of “we need better education!”, “we need freedom!”, “we need spiritual restoration!”, etc. and examine the Scientology organization/founder. I think some critics take it for granted that because we exist in the era of the Internet that the majority knows about (thus is immune to) Scientology tricks. How many people are surprised when they discover the alliance between Scientology and the Nation of Islam? It’s not news to us regular readers of the Bunker (and other ex-/anti-Scientology websites) but for most people out there, they have no clue. I think information IS getting out there and the general public know more about the subject than 10 years ago but the opportunity to get scammed through abusing the good intentions of others is still possible.

      One thing that strikes me about Scientology “activism” is that it’s never a long-term commitment (save for the bashing of all psychiatrists/psychologists as mental health competitors to Hubbard’s Dianetricks. That’s been pretty consistent). Legit activists of any given cause tend to either be well-known or well-versed in their respective scenes. There is a widespread recognition of their painstaking efforts that have been going on for YEARS. The activist community are well aware of their own big players within the ranks. The same applies for non-profit organizations. When I think of enviromental conservation, I think “Greenpeace”. When I think of disaster aid, I think “Red Cross”. When I think of animal rights, I think of “PETA”. So when it comes to gang violence, poverty, drug addictions and other forms of urban blight…who has been working tirelessly in the trenches? I have no doubt that various Christian churches and/or ministers are directly involved because their own members and their families are suffering from them. But Scientology? They come with slogans and simplistic “solutions” but with no in-depth knowledge or research into the situation. They piggyback on other faith groups taking action. Perhaps, Mark–and this is only a suggestion–you should ask members of the black community when they last heard or seen Scientology involved with the Civil Rights Movement of the ’60s or the anti-apartheid struggle in South Africa. Ask them to recall any names of prominent Scientologists who were involved. Of course, they can tell you about Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X and Nelson Mandela but L. Ron Hubbard would draw a blank. I’d hope that would awaken some minds into realizing that Scientology–as an organization–is not invested nor interested in black issues. It only gets involved for their own purposes (i.e. recruitment into either paying membership or Sea Org/staff slave labour). IT’S ALWAYS ABOUT MAKING MONEY AND GAINING AFFLUENCE FOR THE CULT.

      • Mark Foster

        All good points! Thank you 🙂 Channeling that anger into action, indeed…

    • Pepper

      Great job on the FB link Mark. I wish there was a copy of the letter to Polly which could be posted too.

    • richelieu jr

      Mark, you’ve got their number all right.

      Luckily, in spite of Miscavige’s embarrassing, ‘In short most white people wouldn’t know the meaning of cool if it wasn’t for Blacks” (though about as close to a true statement as you’re gonna get from that twisted SOB), and besides that Asshat Farrakhan and the Bowtie Brigade, I don’t get any real feeling the Back Community is buying that brand of kool-aid.

      How many smooth-talking white shysters ahve we seen waltz into the Back Community (is that near the rec centre, BTW?) and start promising salvation, etc? Maybe I’m projecting, but I see more crossed arms and shaking heads than Pie-Eyed nodding along…

    Scientology Indoctrination Abomination
    http://markrathbun.wordpress.com/2014/09/19/scientology-indoctrination-abomination/

    Snip:

    “This bulletin in fact was issued one month before Hubbard’s wife Mary
    Sue and eight other top ranking scientologists went on trial for crimes
    committed in running the largest domestic espionage ring in the history
    of the United States of America. (Fittingly, scientology’s chief
    justification for the operation was to ‘correct false data in government
    files.’) It was headline news across the world. What ‘false data’ do
    you suppose all outposts of the scientology network were fixated on
    ‘stripping’ about that time?”

    • L. Wrong Hubturd

      Slowly, but surely he’s getting there. Good for Marty. Good for all opposed to the cult. I understood the majority of what he wrote this time too. Hooray for me……I think.

  • Sejanus

    How stupid and desperate does a religious driven group have to be in order to get entangled with one of the most destructive entities in existence. All this in the name of saving kids.

    Due diligence…it is not just a rhymey catch phrase.
    Facepalm time.

    • Sid

      They aren’t really trying to save the kids. They are putting themselves on lines they believe no one could argue is a just cause and therefore give them (Scientology) credibility and acceptance.

      • DodoTheLaser

        The sad thing, regular scientologists do believe they are trying to save the kids.

        • Sid

          True.

  • John P.

    On the one hand, this new subtle technique is indeed new for the cult. They clearly need to do something, given a “brand” that ranks as less appealing than either Ebola or hemorrhoids, and trying to disguise themselves is about the only option left. On the other hand, I don’t think they do “subtle” very well, so I really don’t think they will be able to maintain their low-key profile for very long. Something will blow up; it’s in their DNA.

    One particular problem for the cult in trying to put together this kind of event is that they don’t play well with others, especially when it comes to money. I would strongly suspect that if money is to be raised to put on the event, they’ll end up with the lion’s share of the proceeds somehow, and the other organizations involved will quickly discover that they’ve been duped somehow. The end result is that the word will quickly get around among all the other folks that the Scientology people aren’t to be trusted. It will quickly get harder and harder for the cult to find other partners in the area in the future. Remember, a lot of the folks working in these communities have all known each other for years and the word will spread quickly. They’ll do one event with a new player but they won’t do a second one.

    As far as countering this, I think a subtle and relatively straightforward campaign ought to do pretty well. I don’t have time over the next few days to do the research myself, but I think a handful of e-mails to each of the other participants showing the cult’s true colors would wake a few people up. If you traced the history of the organizations and the people involved back to Scientology and then showed Hubbard’s true colors about minorities (especially the various quotes about blacks and being unable to be trained, giving rise to the “Johannesburg sec check”), Hubbard’s comments about Christianity, or anything else relevant to the particular person you’re writing, that ought to make an impact.

    It would be important to do enough research about the recipient to make sure anything they receive focuses on their likely concerns, and that it is very professional and reasonable sounding. One doesn’t need to bring up the Lisa McPherson case and call the cult “abortion fiends” unless that is a particular concern of the individual involved. The brand is already toxic enough that revealing the cult connection and driving home a couple of key points is appropriate.

    There are sufficient numbers of speakers that each one considering withdrawing will find it relatively easy to justify pulling out by thinking there are others who will carry the load and the event will be successful. Much easier to get one of 20 participants to drop out than one of two. If half of the participants think that their withdrawal won’t matter to the overall success of the event, then it will quickly implode. People coming to the event to see a particular speaker who withdrew will be disappointed and won’t attend similar future events.

    Another possible technique to ensure that the cult is not successful staging a series of events would be to interview the other participants afterwards to see what they thought about the content and about the behavior of the cult’s representatives. One obvious candidate to do this would be Tony, but some of us could take on “citizen journalism” roles if he’s not able to fit it into his schedule. Perhaps J. Swift could do one of his videos interviewing a couple of the people involved. When published that would make it harder for anyone doing even a modicum of due diligence to want to hook up with the cult in the future.

    The point of this is that the sneaky approach is the cult playing a very bad strategic hand the only way they can. Critics have the advantage of scale when fighting small events like this because we are more numerous than the cult personnel trying to put on the event. And the dependence on potential partners means that if we can get even a few people to pull out, the event will be considered a failure, the word will get out, and schools and other audiences will not be interested in bringing the cult in.

    • Sid

      The first thing they’ll probably do is try to sell either their Way to Happiness booklets, or drug education stuff at full price. They make a pretty good profit on that stuff.

      • richelieu jr

        Ye,s seeing as there are basically no costs at all.

        1000 TWTH booklets, 75 cents. Drug education : On afternoon for someone paid 46 dollars a week (when they get paid). All visual aids will come out of their own pocket.

        Estimated Cost 3.50.

        Price per ill-informed student (3 class assembly): 350/100= 3.5 cents.

        This may truly be the most generous act in the history of Scientology.

    • HillieOnTheBeach

      “Remember, a lot of the folks working in these communities have all known each other for years and the word will spread quickly.”

      I don’t disagree with your overall point, but exactly because they know each other, the scientology link is likely already known. If there were any concerns by the organizers and/or other participants, it may have been addressed before and the cos-allied participants downplayed their affiliation and gave reassurances there would be no scientology recruitment: “look at this pamphlet, see? no scientology in it” and the others were satisfied. Participants pulling out now would be disparaged as disloyal and trouble-makers.

      My feeling would be that it would be more productive to inform the school, and/or the public that intends to go.

      • Sid

        “look at this pamphlet, see? no scientology in it”.

        “Now, that will be 5000 booklets at $5 each please”.

        • DodoTheLaser

          Small script is your friend.

        • Dean Fox

          The pamphlets are paid for by church of scientology parishioners, they are the ones from whom the money comes. The event itself will be used for church of scientology internal pr, it will feature in a David Miscavige speech as an example of how the church of scientology is preventing gang violence and drug use and has partnered with all the other organisations involved with the implied tacit approval of said organisations of the church of scientology as a whole.

          • Sid

            That’s true, but also the stated purpose of these campaigns is to safepoint Scientology. They do believe in their heads that it does work, even though it failed each time in the past.

    • Bob

      Actually this has been extant for many years but not well known by many clams. Amanda Ambrose was very active in wanting Scientology in the black community and she was a very important element in making inroads.
      This was in the early 70s.

      • Sid

        I remember that. She told me once she wanted to run for president and LRH said “Go ahead. We’ll back you up”.

        • Bob

          Makes sense. The black community had a dirth of support in those days and Hubbard was happy to exploit that.

      • Lynn Fountain Campbell

        Yes. Amanda started Ebony Awakening (a gung-ho group of black scientologists), of which I was a member. I believe the seeds of the Nation of Islam connection were planted during that time via Amanda and a couple of other Ebony Awakening members who were also in the PR arm of the G.O. — Monty Dixon (R.I.P.) and Frizell Clegg (not sure, but I think he’s still on the Kool-Aid).

        • Bob

          That’s right. Amanda was a true Gem. And she contributed to the cherch beyond almost anyone I know. I consider her one of the true angels. Wish I knew her better. She was a shining example to all of us. Makes the crimes being perpetrated by Scumbatology today that much worse to stomach.

          Amanda was a diamond in a dirt pile. She deserved better.

    • Lynn Fountain Campbell

      JohnP, I edited my comment on the facebook page to include the link to Lron’s racist comments. I bet even the scientology participants didn’t have that information. It might give them food for thought.

    • J. Swift

      John P., an excellent assessment.

      IMO, critic, Sylvia Stanard’s appearance at Chautauqua indicates a new phase of Cult operations in which, as you say, the Cult, “clearly need(s) to do something, given a ‘brand’ that ranks as less appealing than either Ebola or hemorrhoids.”

      In the Cult’s mind, “safe” PR space has always been the AfAm community, this because the Cult can play the race card if attacked. And yet, perhaps because of the racism inherent in the Church of Scientology, white guys like Jim Mathers (Nation of Islam handler) and Bob Adams are always there to oversee the money and management of these efforts.

      As to your suggestion that I do a video: Want to make some phone calls first. There is clearly a big player in this event and I don’t want to say more at this time.

    • richelieu jr

      It’s what I call the ‘Jeff Hawkins Rule’: If it works and really helps Scientology, Miscavige will step in and take over, declaring the original runner Counter-Intentional and demanding to know why they are so ashamed of Scientology they feel they have to pussy-foot around and sugar-coat it. He will cite Hubbard saying that all that one needs to do is use his images and words and the people will flood into the ‘Orgs’…

      Why do you think you know better than SOURCE? you CI CS? YSCOHB, person with the subtle plan that worked better than anything in 30 years. Here’s a little year of Sec-Checking for you, asshole, on your own dime!

      RULE #2: When it all falls apart, everyone will be RPFed immediately. Miscavige will search around for someone pliable to being inflicting his stubby, semi-tumescent, diseased penis on.

    • Gabbyone

      I don’t believe that Universities care. I handled my dental scam ok until I learned that my scientology dentist is now a “professor” at his alma mater, and I just can’t “handle” that. Today’s posting really makes me angry and just reinforces the fact that you just can’t tell the good guys from the bad guys anymore. Parents are paying ridiculous sums of cash for their kid to go to school, and they deserve to know that their kid is protected from these predators who wear white hats, but have black hearts.

      • Sibs

        I think it’s still worth trying to communicate with them though. Maybe USC won’t care or sweep the email under the proverbial rug, and maybe the professor will do the same thing – it certainly happens at USC all the time, let’s not kid ourselves. But maybe the professor will wake up and do some digging of his own.

    If it is an “anti-gang” conference then it is an anti-scientology conference. Scientology is much worse than the “Bloods” and “Crypts” who are both much more MORAL oganizations than scientology.

    • ze moo

      $cientology isn’t known for drive by shootings and drug dealing. However, the Bloods and Crypts do ‘take care of their own’, just like the mafia. $cientology, not so much, or at all. Assigning any moral equivalency is not possible in this comparison.

    The flier is a wreck but that is how it is done in a school. To get the kids on board you get them to participate. One kid wants to do the flier. The organizer takes what he is given. The kids are happy.

    That poster needs a few more fonts.

    It is also significantly short of exclamation points and it is not 47x anything. (I know, I know it is not a scientology produced product)

  • endoftheQ

    It’s either they don’t know, they’re so desperate they won’t or can’t care, or there’s enough dollars being splashed about that they can’t resist the proffered candy. I watched $cientology succeed in grooming the City of London police force, what hope is there that the “little guys” will say no?!

  • Science Doc

    Cecil Murray is a highly influential black community leader in LA. He is no doubt used to being contacted by the media. He has hosted several US presidents. If Tony were to contact him straight up for an interview on the conference as described in this story, he would read the story and speak his mind. This isn’t the first time an organization has tried to exploit the good will of the black community in LA.

    • Lynn Fountain Campbell

      I think Rev. Murray first needs to know the true nature of the “church” of $cientology. Cof$ glommed onto him during the L.A. riots, after finding out that many of his parishioners are black celebs.

  • United for Human Rights’ site is humanrights.com. However, their mail server is smtp.humanrights.com and that’s at IP address 198.77.154.221, and that IP address is owned by the Church of Scientology and that’s the address of their mail servers.
    http://whois.arin.net/rest/net/NET-198-77-154-0-1/pft

    So all email communications with this front group are with the Church of Scientology. (I suppose they have to be careful when replying to sign with the right organization name.)

    • No doubt they’ll claim that Scientology is just providing email support to help out a group that they approve of. Yeah, that makes perfect sense, because those Gmail account invitations are so hard to come by!

    The clams do try to act respectable, but when outed, they run like cockroaches in the light. Of perhaps more insidious actions, the Applied Scholastics group tries to get ‘no child left behind’ tutor money from local school systems. Imagine some student who is having trouble in school being told to use a dictionary to look up every word and clay model ‘American history’.

        • Captain Howdy

          I knew this kid Victor and he was your classic kings road cartoon punk style wise and he had a mohawk that was like five spikes that he maintained using airplane glue. One time at a show he came came up to me and my crew looking all sad and when we asked him what was wrong he showed us two of his spikes that had been broken off while slam dancing. I’m laughing just thinking about it.

          • Mark

            As far as I remember, ‘sensible’ punks used sugar-water for their Mohicans (but had to be wary of rainy days) while extremists used Superglue (and often suffered the same indignity as Victor when pogoing).

    On first glance, I’m thinking, So what’s the harm in making an anti-gang, anti-drug, anti-violence message palatable to kids on a Saturday by way of music and dance that might appeal to them? And then I thought of the huge amount of misinformation that probably will be disseminated. And, worse, the sneaky way of implanting lrh into the message. We can assume, in some way, lrh’s fakery will be touted as the only way to heal the community’s problems. Slimy move, scientology.

      • Sherbet

        So are you saying, ze, that after the presentation, all the high schoolers will go behind the school and do the opposite of the message, like beat each other up and form new gangs? Oh, the South Parkian irony! (I know that’s not really what you’re saying.) But it would be nice if the kids came away thinking, Cool music, cool dancing, stupid speakers. And I hope there’s a big trash barrel in which to toss TWTH and The Truth (ha!) About Drugs. It’s not nice to litter.

        • ze moo

          I do hope all the speakers get a anti-gang message heard and acted on. The stakes are just too high. Little Albany NY has at least 1 gang or drug killing every day, sadly many other cities are in the same boat. Asking for Lroon teachings on such things isn’t just counterproductive, they are downright stupid and useless.

  • Douglas D. Douglas

    This is strikingly similar to the “Stop the Killing” Initiative Project that CoS front groups have successfully infiltrated in St. Louis. (http://www.stopthekillingstl.org/) This is a faith-based community campaign aimed at black youth. There are legitimate groups heavily involved– as well as Scientology front groups and NOI.

    One of the big principles of faith-based organizations in the black community is forgiveness. No matter how bad someone is, if they come to the table with help, they will be welcomed and their sins, if not forgiven, will at least be overlooked.

    • Sid

      Scientology forgiveness: “I never forget it, always even the score.” L Ron Hubbard

  • chuckbeattyexseaorg75to03

    “We’ve said it before: Scientology never gives up. With its public image at an all-time low, the sneaky organization continues to infiltrate where it can with the use of its front groups and stealthy operatives.”

    L. Ron Hubbard’s zealot making Scientology policy rules make for Scientologists this world where members are heros and given the Hubbard operation’s medals and awards for infiltrating society with Hubbard’s crank ideas.

    This simple principle, Hubbard having set up an operation that validates and awards their members with cheap (but high in status within the delusional group) awards for carrying out Hubbard’s crank delusional “help” on the world.

    Beyond all the excellent criticism of Scientology, what Hubbard built into his system, is rules and policies that keep the delusional members all giving themselves awards and status for carrying out Hubbard’s delusion about helping the world.

    It’s a devious setup, that really changes reality in the minds of the members, and applauds and awards and elevates their statuses for joining in with Hubbard’s delusion.

    Over on Mike Rinder’s site he’s talking about various facilities owned by $camatology, including Mad Hatter Studios. As I understand it ‘hatting’ means to assign someone a job or role? If so, would that make Ella Raich the Mad Hatter of $cientology?

  • PickAnotherID

    Just for jollies I went poking around that Economic Research Institute site to see what I could find on this “United for Human Rights” bunch. It’s prettey obvious from looking at their 990’s it’s not a money maker. And from the information supplied about UHR’s function, they are very connected with Youth for Human Rights International. For your consideration:

    ERI NTEE Code: R01 (Alliances & Advocacy)

    The ERI NTEE Code is what the ERI believes the NTEE code should be based on Form 990 information if different from that assigned by the IRS.

    From the ‘United for Human Rights’ 2012 IRS Form 990EZ Schedule A Part II Section A Public Support:

    2008 – $1,395,108
    2009 – $371,469
    2010 – $94,115
    2011 – $67,549
    2012 – $133,221

    Part II Section B Total Support information is identical.

    I can’t find anything in the 990EZ to explain the uptick in 2012. Unless it’s a typo and should have been $33.221.

    Schedule L Transactions With Interested Persons Part II is interesting.

    Back on the 2009 Form 990EZ a loan for $41,542 is shown from Mary Shuttleworth, UHR’s President, to UHR.
    The 2012 Form 990EZ shows a balance of $41,542 still remaining. So in 4 years a total of $200 has been repayed to her.

    What’s interesting is on Schedule O, for Part I, Line 16 – Other Expenses the show:

    Bank Charges – $3,745 (I wonder if that was for overdrafts?)
    Telephone – $6,515
    Fund Raising Incentives – $2,523
    Travel – $3,129

    So you have telephone bills more than twice as much as travel costs. Yet they’ve supposedly been involved with a Youth for Human Rights Int 3 day summit in Brussels, Belguim. Then they attended a National Education Association convention in Washington, D.C. with an exhibit that supposedly “enlightened” 1,175 teachers about YHRI. Something doesn’t smell right about this.

        It’s a win win for all, as long as you don’t mind putting your own name, home, assets, and reputation on the line for this form of supporting “command intention” or, as I like to call it, money laundering.

        You will notice most of the long in the tooth scientologists who do the grunt on the ground work via front groups are one broke ass bunch. But they carry value in just this way. The whales just buy their trophies wholesale, set up non profit foundations and shell out grants to all the orgs, IAS, and every front group around. That’s a whole lotta tax exemptions, now isn’t it?

        There is no one left to applaud them anymore as they strut toward Dave’s podium, only a straggling pod of half dead pitiful staff who have no choice but to clap and bow to these pillars of the scientology ideal or, as I like to call them, criminals.

      Hi, I am an interested outsider, and an LAUSD teacher. Dorsey is an LAUSD school, and LAUSD has already banned Narconon from making presentations on our campuses. I suggest you also email Dr. John Deasey, who is the superintendent for LA schools, and explain to him the connections to Scientology. You may be able to stop the summit from happening at all.

      • Jimmy3

        That would be a shame to call the entire thing off. I don’t know how effective these things are, but the legitimate organizations at this conference may actually be able to help some children. It’d be better to just remove the alien cult front groups rather than scrapping the whole thing.

        • Atomx

          I agree, especially considering that Dorsey is in one of the toughest neighborhoods in the city, but only if it’s possible to accomplish what you say in a week’s time. Otherwise, you’d have to take the least of two evils, and cancel the whole thing. The idea of Scientology of getting a foothold in the community and taking advantage of the most vulnerable people in LA is sickening.

        • madame duran

          The entire event is organized by a Scientology front group. I have no problem seeing that event cancelled. Nothing is being lost when that happens. The legitimate movers and shakers who are genuinely concerned with reaching out to youth in gang-infested areas will find other ways and alliances to get the job done.

          • Jimmy3

            I suggest you re-read what Tony and the tipster wrote in this article. This event is not organized by Scientology, it is being organized by a Christian and largely involves Christian organizations who probably have no idea of Scientology’s involvement. Scientology “infiltrated” the event, as the tipster put it.

        Dear Atomx: Please go to the California Department of Education web-site and punch in “narconon.” There you will find the 2005 evaluation of narconon drug education by the CDE recommending against its use in California public and charter schools. LAUSD, back in the early 2000’s, already knew it was bad and banned it from the district before the CDE ruling.

        I will be talking to his office on Monday. This one is a bit dicey because the group is renting the facilities, other organizations that are legit are involved (although they may only now be learning who they are really pairing up with and perhaps you can help with this) and this is NOT a LAUSD sponsored event ….. but the LAUSD has a bright group of administrators and attorneys and perhaps they can negotiate something positive out of this negative con job that scn/narconon is doing.

      From my personal experience with the Co$, I find them to be an alternative mental health sect rather than a bona fide religion. Where I find significant fault with certain groups, is when those known beliefs result in behaviors that are harmful to others. In my own life, for over ten years now, I have attempted to defend my rights to object to the cult’s policies of family disconnection, legal harassment, Fair Game (c), Black PR, De-popularizing the Enemy, and application of L. Ron Hubbard’s:

      HCO PL 2/25/66 “Attack, do not defend,” “Hiring their own PIs to stalk others,” and “make it rough all the way.”

      One has to seriously ponder what Hubbard implied when he wrote: “make it rough all the way!”

      What does “all the way” really mean? To cause bankruptcy, false imprisonment, to go crazy, or worse death – inducement of suicide? I’d really like an official spokesperson for the Co$ to crystal clarify this one point.

    Excellent article by Tony. This quote is important: “We’ve said it before: Scientology never gives up.”

    Many Scientologists brought to their involvement with the church a desire to do good things for others. Superficially, Hubbard was able to exploit that desire via the cultural mindset that his spoken and written
    works created. That Hubbard was furthering hidden agendas predicated on the naive sincerity of his adherents seems pretty clear to those that have stepped back and looked at the true history of the organization. But the great majority of those still inside do not know the true history of the organization and chose not to become aware. They are willfully ignorant.

    One can argue forever whether or not people live only one life, or have serial lifetimes. This has been a religious question since the dawn of time. In many eastern countries, the idea of reincarnation is taken-
    for-granted. Entire cultures have adopted attitudes / actions that incorporate this accepted idea. Some Asian nations take “the long view” when dealing with western adversaries because the idea of multiple lifetimes assures them (at least subjectively) that they will prevail over time. They exploit the one-lifetime
    impatience of western adversaries and frequently gain tactical / strategic advantage in doing so.

    The culture language used inside Scientology is peppered with words like “eternity” and phrases such as the Sea Org motto “We Come Back.” This language creates a cultural mindset of long-view determination that does further the Scientology agenda against outsiders as one rarely comes up against an organization that continues onward even in the face of overwhelming failure. This makes Scientology both odd and dangerous as an adversary.

    To counter the malevolent hidden agenda of Scientology (which is the subordination of all other ideas besides those of L. Ron Hubbard and by default, the ideas of the small cabal at the top that decide what L. Ron
    Hubbard supposedly said) one has to realize they are dealing with fanatics who have a multiple lifetime viewpoint. Lies, crimes, disguises and dishonesty of almost all varieties are OK in Scientology as long as they are perpetrated against people who are “counter intention” to the agenda of Scientology. That is the bottom line of what Scientologist laughably call “ethics.”

    To counter the malevolent long term agenda of Scientology, one must assume a long term viewpoint of the effort one applies against their determination to achieve their goals. And even as the organization appears to
    be in collapse, it remains dangerous as it can still inflict mortal wounds against selected targets, like any cornered wild animal.

    Ron’s Journal 34 describes much of the long term viewpoint: http://www.suppressiveperson.org/sp/wp-content/uploads/1982/03/K-17.pdf

    Understanding the “eternity” mindset that many Scientologists operate under helps one counter the disguises they wear as they seek dominion via stealth.>/b>

    omg, I am digging around on the Freedumb Rag website (proxied, of course) for GAT II quotes from Captain Miscavige to use in a shoop, and I came across this howler. Because peace is achieved by the use of brutal physical assault on slaves who dare not defend themselves.

    National Unity Summit organizer: The goal is clear. We’re going to educate the youths to help keep their minds clear of drugs, educate to help them keep clear of gangs, and we’re going to make it very clear that they have options in life.

    Scientology front clam: That’s right! And once they’re clear, we’re going to help them clear out their BTs and clear them of their USDs!

    National Unity Summit organizer: What was that??

    Scientology front clam: Err… The gangs thing… We’re gonna do the educate about drugs and gangs thing, like you said.

      “The mainstream media is funded by pharmaceutical companies, so when you have the biggest movie star in the world at the time—Tom Cruise—coming out against anti-depressants and Ritalin and just saying, “Hey, why don’t you put a warning label on there?” The thing about Scientology is it is anti-drug in that you’re seeking relationship or communication tools—simple basics on how to live better.”- Juliette

    I find the notion that Scientologists would participate in an anti-gang summit to be rich. Gangs engage in racketeering. By definition Scientology engages in racketeering and has for a very long time. Operation Snow White. Harassing the IRS with lawsuits in order force them to the table to discuss tax exemption without ever holding any intention of following the agreement. Forcing people to work 100+ hours a week for little or no pay: slavery. Scientologists like the Squirrel Busters: bullying and harassment. Locking people in a room and forcing them to give up “donations” before they are allowed to leave. Physical beating of subordinates. Imprisoning people in a trailer and forcing them to live in squalor and horrific conditions. Scientology _IS_ a gang.

    A second flier and an additional day of speakers has been added to the National Unity Summit, to be held at the New Testament Church, on Friday, Sept. 26th. They posted the flier on their Facebook page and I’ve attached it below. This time they added a biblical quote to the flier, at least I was relieved it wasn’t Hubbard “scripture” instead.

    On the Summit’s FB page https://www.facebook.com/nationalgang I noticed two messages by Bunker commenters, Mark Foster and Lynn Fountain Campbell. Quick thinking and good work on their part! Thanks. (Screen cap of their messages attached) So if anyone else wants to educate the well intended but uninformed Summit participants, their FB page is another place to do so.

    P.S. The rest might be tl;dr for some, but I think it’s worth the read for the lulz.

    I stumbled across this speaker’s bio as I was poking around the link provided by Tony’s terrific tipster to the National Unity Summit website. It belongs to “Evangelist” Bendetta Perry, who is not listed on either Summit flier, but I think she will be one of the speakers – as a B-lister, a substitute speaker, or simply a last minute edition to the two day summit? I only mention it because her bio is on a different level of cray-cray than even scientology’s.

    To save y’all an extra click, here it is – in its full, fabulously fragrant glory:

    Evangelist Bendetta Perry is an international speaker, seminar teacher, writer and visionary for the Fragrance of the Spirit Ministry. She teaches that Christians walk in the nine fruit of the spirit, love, joy, peace, goodness, gentleness, faith, long suffering, meekness, and temperance. They release an aroma (perfume) in the atmosphere that causes the world to be drawn to the Christ within them. According to Evangelist Perry, men and women do wear the same fragrance and it is the fragrance of the Holy Spirit.
    Remember, someone is always looking at your life and may ask you this question, “Excuse me, what fragrance are you wearing?” 2 Corinthians 2:15 “For we are unto God a sweet smelling savor.” Ours is a journey of perpetuating the beauty and pleasantries of a life surrendered to the Lord in the beauty of holiness.

    Evangelist Perry is in high demand for speaking engagements, due to her unique style of teaching and she has lead many souls to Christ as she walks in the fragrance of God’s love. She has served in ministry for 20 years; her unique style of teaching and her burden for souls becomes ever more evident as she labors under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Her every word envelopes the atmosphere with a sense of delight as it empowers her listeners to examine their own impact on others around them regardless of their life’s condition or situation .

    Ms. Perry is a graduate of the “International School of Ministry”, she received the 2010 Religion Award for Excellence given by the Inland Valley News Paper for her Fragrance Ministry and writing “The Confident Man, The Confident Woman, A Smile is Powerful and Recipe for Pressing Forward.”

    I don’t know about anyone else, but I’d be tempted to go and listen to her speak. It would be a nice change from the stench associated with scientology.
    (refresh) [groan… unintended pun]

    • TheHoleDoesNotExist

      This fragrance minister is instantly going to find out about Hubbard’s ODD, aversion to any fragrance among his obsessions. She might accidentally and singlehandedly keep the scientology gang out! Part of the brain rinse makes them react to smells like garlic wreaths to vampires. Now That would be a real howler.

      • ze moo

        I have no idea what (if any ) denomination Bendetta Perry, belongs to, but I smell something like $20 sent to an internet site for her ‘ordination’.

        So when the Bloods set down with the Crips to discuss their problems, who is the ‘third party’?

        • TheHoleDoesNotExist

          Scientologists doing a meet up with the Bloods/Crips for peace out training is like sending in Mel Gibson to the temple for sensitivity training.

          The usual routine is to send in their Don Quixote’s who will get anyone with a title to sign off their forms, stealthily usurp feeder names and contact info and run without ever looking back to see what (it’s actually who) everyone is laughing about (at).

          They scamper off to the org, turn in their trophies and write up a success story of how they battled the gangs by using magic tech and left them all singing Kumbaya and conquered every heart and mind in the vast wastelands of Los Angeles.

          Next the scavengers pick over their pile to separate the labor potential, the grant and free money potentials, and discard the rest like so much trash. When the last group gets wind of who and what just hit them, OSA just feeds them with a new list of community groups like so much fresh bait all without skipping a beat.

          I worked with fellow do gooders/fellow artists like Amanda Ambrose who never allowed herself to see why any attempts to lure in the African American community only brought laughter or disaster. I can look back now with the luxury of experience and education and recognize enabling when I see it. But now the only ones who listen are magical mystery fans. Scientologists cannot handle real people with real problems in the real world. This event will be a bust and that as a best outcome.

          Here it is again

          J. Swift • 40 minutes ago
          Notes:

          1. This looks like a larger scale effort to do what Sylvia Stanard did last month when she attempted to insert Scientology into Chautauqua. Sylvia bombed at Chautauqua and so perhaps OSA PR has ordered more troops into this event. Look for the self-promoting PR photos and PR Web “news releases” within one week.

          1A. The presence of pasty white guy and Cult VP Bob Adams at the event supports point 1 above. Bob Adams’ presences indicates that this is yet another stat for the Cult’s continually failed interfaith-ecumenical-community-outreach PR efforts.

          2. The presence of pasty white guy and Narconon tool John Redman on the dais as a “drug expert” supports point 1. However, the fact that Fail Cult Int’l has to use front groups instead of the “Church of Scientology” name renders all such PR efforts inherently dishonest.

          2A. Redman is connected to CALIFORNIANS FOR DRUG-FREE YOUTH, Inc., a Cult front group. Warning: Live Cult Link: http://www.scientologynews.org

          2B. John Redman is ED of Californians for Drug-Free Youth, a Scilon front group that received $3,800,000 in government contracts in 2012 according to its 990.

          2C. Redman’s 2012 salary was $103,500 according to CADFY’s 990.

          2D. CADFY is perhaps the real deep pocket sponsor of this event.

          3. The event organizer “Dr.” Gregory Tatum did the exact same event last year in Chicago and was met there with a frosty reception because he was perceived to be an outsider: http://www.suntimes.com/news/m

          3A. Tatum has, or had, a Baptist Church in Bakersfield. How Tatum gets into the mix with Scientologists may be through Rev. Alfreddie Johnson. However, Power FSM Alfreddie Johnson is conspicuous by his absence from this event. This is very unusual given Johnson’s love of getting his photo taken at events. Johnson tends to be at every big CCI and Scilon Los Angeles event. One wonders if there was no honorarium or opportunity to reg and hence Rev. Johnson’s absence.

            Looking at Tatum’s background and experience, perhaps he is being brought into the fold to train sea orgers for Dave’s new play toy, the L.A. studio?

            “Dr. Tatum is a Baptist minister who has been preaching the Gospel for over thirty years. In his early years he hosted and produced his own local Christian cable program called Christian Experience Ministries. This T.V. outreach ministry stayed on the air in southern California for more than twenty years, reaching more than 250,000 homes a week locally.”

              I noticed on Californians for Drug Free Youth Inc’s 990, they listed under miscellaneous ! expense: Subcontractors, $3,215,060 out of that $3,800,00. I’m sorry, but for that chunk of change from government contracts, you mean to tell me they don’t have to include in great detail Who those subcontractors were and how much for each and for what? What government was that anyway? That just seems strange. There was no other info on that 990 other than “Subcontractors”. That’s all.

    “We are opening to the public the most effective body purification program available. It was developed by L. Ron Hubbard and it was created for people just like yourself. If you feel that toxins may the reason behind why you don’t feel as good as you used to, then we can help. ”

    A list of all the drug/toxin ads on CL is here: http://whyweprotest.net/threads/project-clearcraig.45949/page-14#post-2485371

    If you regularly utilize the daily lists (http://whyweprotest.net/threads/taking-down-co-on-craigslist-co-ads-on-craigslist.113779/page-113#post-2485271 ) or the 3-4 day list (
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-Kvg78kCcvo5gL7UfPcmhmbsagTNtdj0y2LAiHVFrCU/pubhtml ) you will want to employ Reboot Router Tech. If you ordinarily only flag those ads in your own city consider helping out your neighbors by flagging the ads on this fairly short list.

    • Verve

      Reboot Router? Please explain.

      • Espiando

        How about Hearsaying it yourself and learning something?

        • Verve

          Wow, I never thought of that! Besides the fact that the first 5 pages told how to reboot a wireless router. I see why some people think you are prickly, though if that somehow rebooting a router applies to Red X’ing and I missed it, I apologize.

          But I do appreciate the fact that you think I am a moron.

          • Pierrot

            No need to apology, there have been so many changes that it is difficult to keep up.
            Thanks for being part of the RedX gang 🙂

      • Pierrot

        Hi Verve, if you go to the 3 last days list, the left column gives a few tips. Scroll down a little bit and the last tip is about rebooting your router.
        https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1-Kvg78kCcvo5gL7UfPcmhmbsagTNtdj0y2LAiHVFrCU/pubhtml
        Enjoy!

        • Verve

          Oh, that was a literal Router Reboot hint. Hah! Thanks for the tip. I can just randomly reassign my IP through my NAT connection. I’ve been busy for the past month or so, so I haven’t been keeping up with my X duties; you folks are getting rather sophisticated. Me likey!

          • Pierrot

            Hi Verve,
            you will not believe it but I am not too literate about computer & internet. What is the NAT connection and how can you reassign your IP randomly. maybe other people can use this *tech* !

            • Verve

              If you have a router/modem coming from, say, your cable company for internet access for multiple computers, each computer gets a Network Address Translation (NAT) IP on your home network. So each computer behind the router/modem gets it’s own separate IP. Now, it does depend on how the data packets are sent- sometimes the internal IP will get stripped, sometimes not- so you might be able to just change your computer’s IP address, but you may have to do the router reboot if your internet provider strips the internal address off and leaves only the router/modem’s IP.

              Easiest way to try it out is to go to your Network control panel, and either hit “Refresh DHCP address”, or change it to “Static IP”, and set your own sub-address, and then change the static IP whenever you want.

              Hope that helps. For most people, the ‘reboot router’ route (heh) is probably the easiest route. I’m just an IT nerd. And then we could get into proxy servers/re-routers… lol.

              posters like this. Good on ya.

            • Captain Howdy

              I barely remember who this guy is/was..and I don’t care.

            • Jimmy3

              He’s MaxSpacemen and a dozen other people.
              Edit: MaxSpacemen was a typo, but it’s perfect. He’s MaxSpacemen.

            • Captain Howdy

              I kinda thought he was Max but wasn’t sure. I remember Max as being fairly serious about this shit. Beverly Hills guy seemed like a troll. Who the fuck knows. There’s some very strange people loitering around here.

    From the Facebook Group Scientology Invasion of the Black Community:

    https://www.facebook.com/groups/ScientologyInvasion.of.the.BlackCommunity/permalink/702243059857172/?comment_id=702246326523512&offset=0&total_comments=1

    Kuato Lives

    Here
    is some info on the characters behind this mess – 1. This looks like a
    larger scale effort to do what Sylvia Stanard did last month when she
    attempted to insert Scientology into Chautauqua. Sylvia bombed at
    Chautauqua and so perhaps OSA PR has ordered more troops into this
    event. Look for the self-promoting PR photos and PR Web “news releases”
    within one week.

    1A. The presence of pasty white guy and Cult VP Bob Adams at the event supports point 1 above. Bob Adams’ presences indicates that this is yet another stat for the Cult’s continually failed interfaith-ecumenical-community-outreach PR efforts.

    2. The presence of pasty white guy and Narconon tool John Redman on the dais as a “drug expert” supports point 1. However, the fact that Fail Cult Int’l has to use front groups instead of the “Church of Scientology” name renders all such PR efforts inherently dishonest.

    2A. Redman is connected to CALIFORNIANS FOR DRUG-FREE YOUTH, Inc., a Cult front group. Warning: Live Cult Link: http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.scientologynews.org%2F&h=vAQHf4UVI

    2B. John Redman is ED of Californians for Drug-Free Youth, a Scilon front group that received $3,800,000 in government contracts in 2012 according to its 990.

    2C. Redman’s 2012 salary was $103,500 according to CADFY’s 990.

    2D. CADFY is perhaps the real deep pocket sponsor of this event.

    3. The event organizer “Dr.” Gregory Tatum did the exact same event last year in Chicago and was met there with a frosty reception because he was perceived to be an outsider: http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.suntimes.com%2Fnews%2Fm&h=sAQF3YmnR

    3A. Tatum has, or had, a Baptist Church in Bakersfield. How Tatum gets into the mix with Scientologists may be through Rev. Alfreddie Johnson. However, Power FSM Alfreddie Johnson is conspicuous by his absence from
    this event. This is very unusual given Johnson’s love of getting his photo taken at events. Johnson tends to be at every big CCI and Scilon Los Angeles event. One wonders if there was no honorarium or opportunity to reg and hence Rev. Johnson’s absence.

  • Bobby Andrews

    who can we forward this to so they know whats going on

  • Bobby Andrews

    ok posted to their facebook page, we will see how long that lasts, any other contact info for non-$cinos that should be alerted

  • Tony Ortega

    For some reason, Disqus identified Jeff’s comment as spam. I corrected that.

    I’d guess it had something to do with his numbering scheme.

    • Jo

      I just posted a Pink Floyd vid, that got marked as spam too.

      • Jimmy3

        It was blocked by youtube due to Sony Music content. But I doubt that had anything to do with why it was removed by Disqus.

        • Jo

          Who know’s? I don’t.

      • Captain Howdy

        It is part of the new regime I have implemented. All classic or progressive rock vids must be cleared by the committee.

        • Jo

          So we can’t post youtube vids? That suck’s, excuse my aprosatatys 🙂

          • Jimmy3
            • Jo

              Hey, I’m confuzed.

            • Jimmy3

              Me too. I don’t understand what they built or how they were able to breathe underwater. But I always smile when he reports that Atlantis is full of cheer. My favorite.

            • Jo

              Not fair if we can only post underwater stuff, music should be free.

            • Captain Howdy

              Hey Jo, here you go..cheer up and have a listen

              I was going to pick that then I remembered the Cave version. That was her first record b/w Piss Factory.

            • jeff

              Indeed it was…Probably drops my cool factor, but I never got Nick Cave…

            • Captain Howdy

              That’s o.k as long as you recognize Shane MacGowan as the one true God.

            • jeff

              The Pogues are cool….Nick Cave sounds to me like he’s trying too hard to be Lou Reed and doesn’t come close to Uncle Lou’s genius or sensibility.

            • Jimmy3

              That is funny. Where do you live? Do you have any children?

            • Barbara Angel

              How much for your children, I want to buy your children…………………We’re short of slaves over here, surely you don’t actually want the bother of raising your children? You could get busy saving the world with the most ethical people on the planet.

        • Baby

          Ha.. I believe it! xo

          • Jo

            It can’t be true, gonna test it.

            • Captain Howdy

              Wasn’t me.

            • Jo

              I know, is it only related to Sony music?

            • Captain Howdy

              Don’t know.

      • Todd Tomorrow

        I posted a comment on Krusty’s photo that said,”Lipstick on a pig.” And it has been flagged or removed.

    Bob Adams biography at the National Unity Summit website. No mention of Scientology, but notice the blue Research and Discovery volumes in the background.

    • CommunicatorIC

      Bob Adams biography at the Official Scientology News website. Notice
      the blue Research and Discovery volumes in the background. It is the
      same picture.

      • L. C. Spencer

        Not the same picture, but obviously taken at the same time. Wow, that’s pretty blatant.

    • As the VP of Church of Scientology International, is he afraid of being “retired” like his boss Heber?

      • Todd Tomorrow

        You mean packed into a trailer never to be seen again.Anyone see,Marc yager since,
        dm paraded him out of the hole a couple months back?

    Dorsey High web site upcoming events shows nothing on Sept 27………good football game on the 26th

    • Jimmy3

      It’s because this conference has nothing to with the student body of Dorsey High, the organizers are simply renting the space (I’m guessing it’s a gymnasium). It’s not a school function.

  • richelieu jr

    I’m looking for a presentation tha toffers both real Emotional Healing, Sex AND Gun Violence AND Suicide Music Trafficking!

    Do you know how many Suicide-themed songs are pirated per day? Ozzy Osborn alone has lost millions, and the Altman family is now on welfare due to royalty losses of the MASH theme song!

    I for one and sure that, with the help of the CoS, the West Side Buggs and Corey Co-T Tatum will have the answers!

  • DeElizabethan

    Thank you ‘vigilant’ tipster. This is most interesting and needs to be exposed. Tony, of course is the right one to give any tips. We readers really appreciate news like this.

  • DeElizabethan

    BTW, I also have missed Midwest Mom, where are you? Hope you are well.

  • God damned filthy flicking crooks! Targeting our fucking children!

    • Mooser

      “God damned filthy flicking crooks! Targeting our fucking children!”

      Why don’t they leave those kids alone, and let them have sex if they want. That’s how it was when I was young. The grown-ups had no idea what we were up to, and didn’t care.

  • Meelah

    They’ve been targeting the black community for a while with little success (besides the NOI). I’m guessing the new trick is trying to package Scientology into a Christian or Islamic facade.

  • Unex Skcus

    OT, but this gave me quite a laugh: “Church of Scientology Celebrates Banned Books Week” – http://scientology411.wordpress.com/2014/09/19/church-of-scientology-celebrates-banned-books-week/

    • Qbird

      Nice list of forbidden books.
      And this:
      If you are a Scientologist who has made the grave error of reading one
      of these forbidden books your only recourse is to pull out your credit
      cards and immediately move up in IAS and Ideal Org status. Your eternity
      depends on it!!!

    THE UNKNOWN DATUM – A MEST SHAKING LECTURE

    A lecture given on 14 September 1955

    This was why you stayed in it and why you didn’t leave, because you had to know something and you didn’t know what it was! That’s an interesting thing to know because if a man knows how to walk out of the door, he ceases to be a prisoner of that jail, even though he still can walk around in the jail.

    • Baby

  • Stacy

    I shudder to think of the unrealistic, conspiracy-fueled advice CoS would give on the problem of gangs. Since they exist in an unrealistic bubble-world, they have no grasp of the many complex issues that fuel the gang lifestyle. On the other hand, I’d pay big bucks to see some CoS cultist try to “handle” a 15 year old gun-carrying member of a turf/conflict gang. I know who I’d be betting on.

  • IDLERACER

    This just plain doesn’t make any sense. Nobody who lives in the Baldwin Hills area can afford even one auditing session. I guess they figure that the poorer neighborhoods are the only places left where people who haven’t heard of Scientology (and what they’re really all about) might still exist.
