Scientology is turning Larry Hagman’s house into a drunk tank for celebs

NarcononOjaiWell, Mike Rinder called it, and on Friday night, Scientology leader David Miscavige confirmed it: After purchasing the hilltop Ojai estate of Larry Hagman from the actor’s widow last year, the church will be turning the place into a drug rehab clinic for celebrities who need to dry out.

That was one of several announcements made by Miscavige as he held forth on Friday night’s annual International Association of Scientologists gala in a big tent on the grounds of Saint Hill Manor, the church’s UK headquarters and L. Ron Hubbard’s home from 1959 to 1966.

The church claimed that 7,500 of its members attended Friday night’s event, which we’re pretty sure is larger than the tent’s actual occupancy, but we’ll just have to take Scientology’s word for it. On Saturday night, the annual Patron’s Ball was held to honor the organization’s biggest donors, and we have reason to believe that Tom Cruise attended and showed off his Freedom Medal of Valor.

Judging by photographs posted to Scientology’s Facebook page, Miscavige, 54, looked healthy and sported a slightly higher pompadour than usual…

We enjoyed this quote put out by the church…

[Miscavige] remarked that Scientology is “the only movement transcending every national, cultural and demographic barrier… and that’s not even counting what we transcend in terms of physical universe space and time.”

Well, when your movement is crashing in statistics here on this plane of existence, we suppose it’s some comfort to count other planets in your enrollment figures.

Miscavige loves to reveal new expansion plans for the assembled multitudes, and this time he bragged on how he’s planning to construct new Advanced Orgs, such as this one which he claims will spring up outside Sydney…

Will he actually build the thing? [UPDATE: The building exists, so this would be another of Scientology’s expensive renovation jobs, which have a tendency to stall.] He’s already proven that he’ll pour millions into projects whether they’re needed or not. But recent events that we’ve covered make it absolutely plain that the existing Advanced Orgs in Los Angeles and Clearwater, Florida are already going through upheavals because they’re both starving for business.

A new Advanced Org in Australia, which has only about 2,000 members on the entire continent? This is like Blockbuster announcing that it’s going to open new superstores that will stock both DVDs and VHS tapes.

However, while we’re very skeptical that such a monstrosity will ever be built, we have no doubt that Scientologists around the world will soon be under intense pressure to donate money towards its cost.

Miscavige’s other big reveal was the announcement of a network of new “Ideal Narconons.” News of the “Ideal” rehab clinics has been leaking out for some time, and now we get some nice images to put with some locations.

The new “continental” Narconons will be located near Pretoria, Sydney, Mexico City, Toronto, and in East Sussex and Denmark. But the jewel in the crown will be the hilltop drunk tank for celebs in Ojai…

 
NarcononOjai2

 
Most glaringly missing from that list, of course, is the facility that was Narconon’s jewel, its flagship operation in Oklahoma, Narconon Arrowhead. As we showed earlier, Narconon Arrowhead is on the verge of collapse, and numerous lawsuits, some filed in the wake of recent patient deaths at the facility, have probably doomed the place. And, as readers of this website know, the other American Narconons are vulnerable, with dozens of lawsuits cropping up as a result of the rehab network’s deceptive practices.

So here, apparently, is a way to wipe the slate clean. Narconon’s focus will go to a few expensive large facilities in foreign countries, and a fancy joint outside LA which will cater to actors and actresses and other people who might be less apt to sue the joint.

Also on the slate Friday night were this year’s Freedom Medal winners…

 
IAS30FreedomWinners

 
Here’s what Scientology had to say about them…

The IAS Freedom Medal for 2014 was bestowed upon three exemplary Scientologists: Vlastimil Spalek, a Czech “cyclorunner” who crisscrossed his nation by bike and on foot, spearheading a Truth About Drugs movement to ultimately halt spiraling drug abuse in the Czech Republic; Maria Lara, an exquisite Colombian actress who energetically used the common-sense values of The Way to Happiness to galvanize industries and military personnel in five nations; and Kate Ceberano, the Australian musical superstar who for some three decades has tirelessly championed Scientology as a humanitarian voice for freedom.

 
Woo-hoo! This planet will be cleared in no time!

  • Captain Howdy

    These big, remote ideal con’s would be ideal places for Cobholio to hide out in if the SHTF.

    • ze moo

      Mexico will extradite, with great joy and happiness, I must add. Where could he go?

      Cobholio is not currently in any criminal trouble in the US. He could take whatever ‘golden parachute’ he designated and walk away anytime. Why does he stay? He is narcissist megalomaniac with delusions of grandeur and loves the illusion of power the CO$ gives him. Being the big fish in an ever shrinking pond appears to be his calling in life.

      • Captain Howdy

        They will extradite if they know he’s there. It’s not hard to sneak into a country. All you need is an ocean worthy vessel, a small boat to take you ashore, a waiting car. Osama and Whitey Bulger successfully hid in plain site for years.

        • ze moo

          While officially, Mexico does not bother $cienology, they would love to make the Catholic Church happy and show up the US if they grabbed DM. Just the thought of DM in a Mexican jail makes me so happy.

          • Espiando

            My hatred of him is so intense that a Mexican jail isn’t enough. It’s a minimum of Turkish prison for me.

            • NOLAGirl

              Or a North Korean prison camp.

            • Captain Howdy
            • Espiando

              Not enough public buggery in North Korea. However, in a Turkish prison…

            • Captain Howdy

              How about Rikers?

            • Jimmy3
            • Todd Tomorrow

              San Quinten, is a mess and always cold. My buddy is a shrink there and it is so old it takes the guards an hour to get him to his office. Too many locks. And isn’t his address in, Cali?

            • Captain Howdy

              In Quentin you have cells, at Rikers you have dorms, which are much more dangerous.

            • Scream Nevermore

              But they both have showers, yes? Bubba will be waiting, wherever…

            • Captain Howdy

              At Rikers they construct a fort in the middle of the dorm out of the bunk beds and drape sheets over the sides so the guards can’t see – not that they care – and they hold rape parties that last all night.

            • Scream Nevermore

              I would say ‘pooor Wavey Davey’, but I’d be lying.

            • Missionary Kid

              IMO, he’d buy his way out of that, but what do I know?

            • Sandy

              Surely not.

              I choose not to believe you.
              I call bullshit.

            • Sandy

              Even after thinking about it – I still call bullshit… I appreciate the fact that you have real experience in the penal system, but – this is a stupid story

            • Eivol Ekdal

              Room 101

    • “cobholio” love that!! he never needs tp for his bum hole but the sea org does!!

      • Captain Howdy

        Cobholio needs s.p’s for his bunghole.

    • Missionary Kid

      Were you the one who came up with it? I’ve had it on the list of DM’s nicknames for a long time.

      • Captain Howdy

        You betcha.

        • Missionary Kid

          Good one.

          IIRC, I’m the one who came up with Bunkaroos, but I’ve read so many terms that my mind may have convinced me of it.

  • Vaquera

    Confirmation that Travolta was not at Saint Hill for the celebrations over the weekend. He was at a Vancouver Canucks vs Lightening ice hockey game in Vancouver. #priorities (refresh)

    • much cheaper for him and actually FUN!! good for him!!

  • Sid

    Ideal Narconon Ontario is hoping the Toronto Mayor will be their first customer. They are probably already calling him.

    • Panopea Abrupta

      I hope he is too.
      He is so much cray-cray, he almost out-crays $cientology.

      He’ll do them as much good as those other Narconon shills, Kirstie and Travolta.
      How did Oklahoma work out, JT?

      • Missionary Kid

        I like that he’s wearing the black chia hair.

    • They’d better hurry: In one week, he’s no longer the mayor. (He’ll probably be a councilor for Etobicoke, because there’s something in the water supply there.)

  • Stacy

    I feel like saying it again:

    Ideal Narconon! What a frigging joke!

    • Todd Tomorrow

      Like, Fresh frozen or Farm Fresh, when you live in a city and there isn’t a farm around for miles.

  • Vanfan

    Scientology FB page has only 78,689 Likes. Come on. They claim millions of members. Where are the millions of likes?

    • a lot of thetans cannot afford internet access….

      • pronoia

        Sadly, a lot of thetans are too terrified of the presence of the feared overlord Xenu to even approach the dreaded Internet..

        • well it contains—so i’ve heard—google!! that could lead to hearsay! and worse!! entheta!!

  • Todd Tomorrow

    Mark bunker did a mini documentary on, Jenny where she started a clam front group called, The Citizens of religious Tolerance. It is a hoot but I can’t seem to find it. Anybody have it? Been looking for an hour!

    • Todd Tomorrow

      Sorry, it was Mary Demoss.

    • Frodis73

      Did you find it yet?

      • Todd Tomorrow

        Oh Thanks!!! I thought this was Jenny, but it wasn’t. Thanks so much, Frodis73!

    Seeing miscavige looking healthy and happy, begs the question…whom has he paid off?

  • i-Betty

    O/T

    @Observer – this gives a much better idea of the timeline. I was lucky enough to be part of both the Friday night and Saturday dawn raids. Reading Axiom’s report has given me butterflies all over again! (Videos coming very soon).

    I hope to have the ‘full monty’ versions of the videos up soon(ish), but here is a quick run-down of the events from my perspective:

    A contingent of Irish Enturbulators arrive in England and assemble at a secret location. Their mission – to give a very warm welcome to David Miscavige and all the other cult victims Scientologists going to St Hill for the IAS festivities on Friday 17th Oct.

    Irish contingent meet up with assorted Old Guard, Anons, Exes and concerned citizens in East Grinstead. Intensive planning and preparation takes place, which mostly include eating, talking about elaborate but highly impractical enturbulation plans, marking of placards and sitting in the pub, drinking. Oh and some discussion about how they were going to spend the massive protest bonuses paid by Big Pharma.

    At some point in the proceedings a decision is made to actually do some protesting and about 15 or so make their way to St Hill to begin the activities. Amusingly, and in typical cult footbullet fashion, the cult had planted a line of conifers along the side of the road opposite their own property. This was presumably to prevent protesting from taking place. However, when I pointed out that it would be unsafe for anyone to stand there, in the road, the police agreed and allowed protesters to stand on the same side of the road as the main entrance and much closer than they would have been able to if the trees were not there! In fact, there were several dozen or so Scientologists arriving on foot and they had to walk within inches of the friendly but informative anti-cultists.

    Due to this and the fact that arriving vehicular traffic was slowed to a crawl outside the entrance, the Scientologists got a good look at all the displayed placards. Some did their best not to look or listen, but many showed an interest.

    After several hours some of the aforementioned get bored and decide to go for a drive. As luck would have it, they end up at the other end of cultland and decide to go for a walk. Amusingly, the cult had stationed 2 security guards in a car park (not owned by the cult) and became suspicious when the group arrived. Unfortunately, they had positioned themselves in totally the wrong place and when the group sauntered off down the footpath, the guards were left trailing in their wake and resorted to shouting vague threats to get them to stop.

    Unfortunately, their TRs were not very good and their communication didn’t get through and the group found themselves quite by accident, in the grounds of St Hill, very close to where several dozen ‘public’ Scientologists were taking part in a pre-event perambulation. Meanwhile, cult security had rushed, en masse to the scene and headed them off at the pass, er bridge over the stream.

    A tense stand-off ensued with cultists shouting and generally being rather objectionable. Calm was restored when a (non-Scientologist) security guard patiently and good-humouredly talked to the group and politely asked them to leave. This they agreed to, but bizarrely at this point, despite previously demanding that they leave immediately, a cultists demanded that they stay and wait for the police. Somewhat exasperated, the non-cultist security chief overruled him and the group returned to join their comrades at the main gate.

    By this time, it was getting rather dark, but festivities continued until well-after the advertised event start and late-comers were gently, but publicly chided for their tardiness.

    Eventually, people stopped arriving and the anti-cultists left to go for a drink / meal etc.

    However, this was not the end of the fun…

    Very early the next morning (Sat) a dedicated, hard-core group assembled at a secret forward-operating base for a top-secret infiltration mission. Under cover of darkness a convoy of vehicles cruised past cult HQ and were amazed to find the place lit-up light a Christmas tree (not a good idea if you want to see anyone approaching) with perhaps a dozen security guards still on duty. Many of these were recognised from the previous day, implying that the poor blighters had been on duty all day and all through the night. Seriously Mr Miscavige, I know you like wielding this sort of power over people, but how effective do you think these guys are going to be after that?

    The convoy proceeded to the designated staging zone (sports club car park), but were followed by a suspicious security guard on foot. Protip to cult security – if you are trying to catch us out, don’t going walking up to your target swinging a bright flashlight in front of you. Then followed a bizarre game of cat-and-mouse where a cultist swept the area with a flashlight beam and the operatives crouched behind the vehicles (barely suppressing giggles). Realising the game was up, our infiltration team hatched a brilliant plan to evade the pursuers!

    They drove off, waited a few minutes and then returned.

    With daylight rapidly approaching, our intrepid team leapt out of the vehicles and sprinted walked across country to a weak point in the cult HQ perimeter. Using highly-advanced stealth techniques (i.e. adopting a nonchalant saunter), the group strolled into the grounds (which are open to the public, remember) and up to the statue (you know the famous one of a man with no, er undercarriage). As luck would have it, they rounded the corner and almost collided with the head of OSA UK, Janet Laveau. who greeted them with an almost-cheery ‘Hello’ before realising who they were. They were then greeted by a contingent of security who had been chilling and having a bit of a chin-wag by the statue.

    I mean, seriously guys, you had seen them earlier, you must have been expecting this, and yet they caught you napping. Janet must have had a rather uncomfortable conversation later with Der Leader.

    Anyway, the security contingent swung into action and attempted to surround the group, not noticing that part of the infiltrators and peeled off and were wandering around the grounds unchallenged. A tense stand-off then ensued while Laveau and her cronies flapped ineffectually. Laveau lost her cool and slapped one of the group and then beat a hasty retreat only returning when the police finally arrived (more than 30 mins later).

    In the meantime, the group had ample opportunity to converse with security and engage in a bit of impromptu choreography. Although things threatened to get out of hand when a Guy Fawkes mask was stolen from an infiltrator and a cultist resorted to pointing a very bright flashlight (4 barrelled) right into the eyes of several protesters, thus risking optic damage. This was later reported to the police and the perpetrator pointed out.

    What was particularly noticeable was the condition of the cultists. Some of them appeared to have aged hugely since we had last seen them (2 years ago) and one particularly, appeared to be almost on the verge of collapse (guy at the end of my first video posted earlier).

    Anyway, the police arrived and asked the group to leave. They then did so, in an orderly fashion, tired but exhilarated.

    So here is a question for any Scientologists reading this – how come you hired security guards and had perhaps a couple of dozen of your own guys on duty and you had dogs, cameras (with infra red vision), motion detectors and goodness knows what else and you had prior warning and yet this group of ordinary people managed to wander unchallenged right into the heart of your stronghold? Couldn’t you find an OT or two to do their super-power thing and prevent this?

    I have a feeling that the repercussions for the hapless staff are going to be rather severe given Miscavige’s paranoia and famous bad-temper.

    Security is bound to be significantly beefed up for next year.

    Sounds like a challenge…

    • DeElizabethan

      Sounds like the anti cultist were in heaven, with such enturbulation towards the proper deserving people and the excitement that ensued.
      What a great write up and thank you i-Betty so very much for those of us that couldn’t attend. I loved that they couldn’t predict your movements, Whoa, way to go! Screw the OSA security, they have no idea what power the SP’s have!

      Edit: what’s the axiom say?

      • i-Betty

        Sorry, Dee – I should have made it clear that the post was written by the superb Axiom142, a regular commenter at ESMB (he made the superb St Hill Manor sewage videos).

        Here is a little video he made with highlights from our first raid when four of us made it inside the grounds on Friday afternoon/evening. You see me for a split second only, BUT I WAS THERE! 😀

          Oops! Thanks were supposed to go here!

        • DeElizabethan

          Thanks i-Bettty. I later saw it on FB and realized that.
          Kudos to Axiom and I did love the sewerage vidos exposure a lot.

      • pronoia

        I am guessing that the reason they were unable to “predict” was because, unlike the E. Grimstead PD, they were to afraid of SPs to access YouTube!

    • Scream Nevermore

      I hope Laveau is being charged with assault?

      • i-Betty

        She bloody deserves to, nasty piece of work. I’ll take some quick screen cap of her face as she walked towards me, ooh – and also some of her face when she’s yelling at John to get out. Man, that woman is sour.

        • Scream Nevermore

          Crazy and sour seem to be a couple of things many of them have in common. Anyway, the grounds are supposed to be open to the public, so why shouldn’t you be there?

          • i-Betty

            Hilariously we asked the policemen that same question when they came to gently move us on, and the reply was: this place is like Tesco. It’s open to the public but they still have the right to ask you to leave 😛

            • Scream Nevermore

              LOL – good answer. Still, I wonder, if they get any govt/local authority grants, that might be tied in with their being open to the public; seems to me that hassling members of the publis would contravene those kind of conditions.

            • Stacy

              Great Britain seems way too savvy to give any govt funds to CoS.

            • Once_Born

              The CofS itself has have been refused charitable status, and the rules effectively exclude any organisation which does allow the public to freely participate. Predictably, however, they have found ways around this.

              Some front groups are registered charities, which subsist on donations. If the CofS donates to a front group (especially an inactive one) that money is effectively passed back to them, tax free, in franchise payments.

              Candidates include:
              Narconon UK http://scicrit.wordpress.com/2014/08/20/narconon-in-the-uk-part-one/ (which occasionally does drug education presentations in schools)
              Narconon Scotland http://scicrit.wordpress.com/2014/08/21/scientology-in-the-uk-part-two/ (which offers a creepy ‘home detox’ – vitamins and minerals by mail, only £90 for a weeks supply)

              The published accounts of both of these groups indicate that they are, financially, bumping along the bottom.

              It’s wouldn’t be a lot of money, because they have a pathetic turnover – but it’s annoying nonetheless.

            • pronoia

              So just like any other supermarket, you have a right to enter and be there until they call the cops or the dog unit or whatever.

              Other than the bouncy grey hound who thought the Guy Fawlkes was a toy to chase, did any of you see anything of the fearful dog unit? Haha.

            • Missionary Kid

              Reminds me, I used to have a watch dog. She’d watch you do anything you wanted, then she’d attack you with her tongue or her tail.

            • i-Betty

              The world’s most cheerful guard dog! 😀

              Actually, there were teams with Alsatians patrolling the gates, BIG Alsatians, but the fact they didn’t call them down to deal with us tells me they were there for show. We weren’t actually expected to get inside, we were meant to be frightened off just by seeing how over the top their security was. I wonder whether there is some special licence that has to be applied for to use dangerous dogs to round up errant protesters; I can’t see why else they didn’t use the dog teams. They threatened them enough times.

        • pronoia

            Easy (well, maybe not so easy) solution- get out. Become your own person again. The Bunkerittes can, and will, help. ‘Cause that’s how we roll.

        • Stacy

          Is it just me, or does this Laveau woman look like Nancy Cartwright?

          • i-Betty

            Ha, yes, actually. She does a bit.

        • i-Betty

          I’m never usually nasty, particularly about a woman’s appearance because to me that is women turning on each other and should be spat on. But please may I put my principals to one side really briefly to share this hilarious exchange from SPs ‘R’ Us? (refresh) – now I am going to hell for laughing 😛

This raid will go down in history as a stellar example, inw one should conduct oneself to confront and shatter all manner of suppression.

          Well Done!!!!!!!

          • i-Betty

            I’ve loved your comments and support over the last couple of days, Pronoia. You rock!!

            • Missionary Kid

              You deserve all the support we can give. You’ve given us a lot of laughter.

              I hope you stay safe. You went into the belly of the beast and pricked his side – from the inside.

            • i-Betty

              A million thanks to you, too, MK – to all of you. A large part of my experience was thinking about you all back here and how much you would enjoy hearing about it, and wishing you could have been with us.

            • Missionary Kid

              We all wish we could be together IRL, which is a disadvantage when events happen in one place. On the other hand, because we’re connected by the internet, we can communicate more widely and rapidly than ever before.

              Davy’s dissemination sucks compared to ours. Everything he says or writes has to be filtered through many layers before it comes out, and he’s usually too fearful to speak out himself, except for gatherings like this last weekend.

              The only things that keep the clam scam together is the self-censorship that clams are taught to do.

            • pronoia

              The truth is that if there was any way I could’ve been there I would’ve been beyond the moon happy to have been able to participate in the the flesh and bone. Nevertheless, it has been a tremendous honor to have had the privilege to be with you all in virtual time and space. I know in my heart that all of you have engnedered doubt and confusion. And hopefully hope! Thank you, all of you, for creating a model of enturbulation which is both effective and joyful!

        • Captain Howdy

          Thanks, that was swell.

  • Chocolate Velvet

    Wow.
    Uh…
    Either David has had some work done — looks like Botox to the forehead, and a chin implant — or that is a terrible job by the cult photo editors. A little surgery would explain why he was so scarce for the past several months. Either way, the cracks in the armor are showing, as vanity in the “ecclesiastical leader of the most ethical people on the planet”. I mean, no truly BIG BEING would be so obsessed with the meat body. Instead of plastic surgery, Dave should just drop the body and get a new one.

    Or, does he not really believe the bullshit he is selling? Nah, that couldn’t be it…

    • Captain Howdy

      I was just wondering where you’ve been.

    • Missionary Kid

      The last sentence…great sarcasm.

      • Vaquera

        Oh sure, MK, you recognize Velvet’s sarcasm, but never mine! I’m going to pout for exactly 47 seconds.

        • Missionary Kid

          Your subtlety is delicious. Once I catch on, I feel like a catch and release fish after the hook is taken out. You’re pretty damn good.

          • Vaquera

            *blush* My Kailua brownies are even more delicious. 🙂

            • Missionary Kid

              Someday, we’ll all be able to come out behind our anonymity and meet. I’m looking forward to tasting them, when I get to Texas.

              You will be most welcomed.

            • Missionary Kid

    It’s amazing how the Co$ tries to make it seem like the IAS event was a fundraiser for local charities.

    “Bart Simpson” to visit Scientology HQ in East Grinstead
    http://www.eastgrinsteadcourier.co.uk/Bart-Simpson-voiceover-actress-Nancy-Cartwright/story-23165574-detail/story.html

    Here are some excerpts…

    Funds raised from the concert will be used to support two charities – East Grinstead Museum and the British Exploring Society, and Nancy will give further details on the night.

    The tradition of the charity concert dates back to the 1960s when L Ron Hubbard, who founded Scientology, supported local charities when he lived at Saint Hill Manor.

    • Missionary Kid

      Can you find out how much was actually given?

      • FromPolandWithLove

        Table leftovers, and five boundles of TWTH pamphlet?

        • Missionary Kid

          I’d bet it’s much more than that, but just enough to keep the groups from complaining.

      • aegerprimo

        I have no idea. The “FUND” link provided in the article goes to a mortgage calculator site – http://www.bankrate.com/calculators/index-of-mortgage-calculators.aspx?ec_id=VIBR_loan_mortgage_calculator
        My guess, if money was given the above mentioned charities, it was probably minimal enough to make the claim, OR it could be a flat-out lie since $cientologists are lying liars that lie.

        • Missionary Kid

          If it’s a lie, some sharp-eyed Bunkaroo sleuth will let them know that their name was used.

          • aegerprimo

            Yes, I know we are counting on it!

      • Vaquera

        From October 2012:

        “Speaking on behalf of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, Mr. Peter Tarrant said he was overwhelmed with the cheque for £50,000, which he received on stage from Ms Marianne Rowell of the Church of Scientology. He said this will fund the Lifeboat Crew Room at the brand new Lifeboat Station in Cowes, Isle of Wight.”

        http://www.patheos.com/blogs/scientologybeliefs/2012/10/16th-annual-church-of-scientology-charity-concert-raises-50000-to-aid-royal-national-lifeboat-institution/

        The article was written by $cioNews, so take the facts with a grain of sal…..no, with a salt lick.

        • Missionary Kid

          Thanks. Of course, that was then.
          If it enhances the rep of Co$ DM (he sees himself as one and the same), he’ll spend money.

          • Kelly hosts Scientology gig October 29, 2007, Press and Journal

            [..] The concert, which included performances from Academy Award nominated film composer Mark Isham and the UK’s top swing band, The Jive Aces, raised £150,000 for the construction of the Bluebell Railway Station in East Grinstead.

            Some 2,000 people attended the concert with other guests coming from all over Europe and as far away as the United States.

            Avril Gaynor, press officer for the Bluebell Railway, said: “We at the Bluebell Railway are the delighted recipient of a massive cheque kindly donated by the L Ron Hubbard Foundation of Saint Hill Manor, East Grinstead, to help in our quest to reach East Grinstead.” [..]

            • Missionary Kid

              Sounds like a clam press release. Anything more current?

        • Scream Nevermore

          Mentions of it are only showing up for $cino blogs, so I wonder if they’re telling porkies?

          • Vaquera

            Thus my salt lick comment.

    • Somewhere along the line, they stopped mentioning the CoS groups that get funds and only mention the one local outside group that gets £50k-£150k each year.

      That doesn’t sound like a stunning contribution, depending how large their crowd is.

      • Missionary Kid

        They won’t decrease their donation, IMO, because, of course, they’re “the fastest growing religion.” That would be contrary to what they’ve been putting out.

  • DeElizabethan

    By golly! Thought I’d rest up today and had to go out also. Come back to over 500 comments on a new thread.

    Browsed most all comments and you Bunker guys and gals are the BEST. However for speed I couldn’t like them all so here’s Cheers to liking your posts and much love.

    Tony O, it’s just hard to keep up. I thank you for every day and twice a day.

    • Stephanie Loving

      I second that emotion.

  • Volunteer SP

    Tony O:
    “Judging by photographs posted to Scientology’s Facebook page, Miscavige,
    54, looked healthy and sported a slightly higher pompadour than usual…”

    It’s difficult to just the health of a person with accuracy because the use of Photoshop as well as makeup can mask the true situation.

    As an example, I happened to get within a few feet of Ronald Reagan when he was first running for President of the U.S. and was surprised to observe that he seemed much older than he appeared on TV. The makeup he was wearing for a TV appearance was quite thick.

    I’m sure that Miscavige got wind of the negative comments made about some of his recent appearances and so he may have recruited a new makeup artist to handle his public appearances.

    • Missionary Kid

      I know it’s fun to speculate on DM’s health and how he looks, but include me out. I hope he gets undetected melanoma or cancer of the lips and has to have it whacked out. I’d then stand up and crow, “He pulled it in. See, smoking doesn’t prevent cancer.”

    • Scream Nevermore

      I remember when members of the then ruling party were heading down to England for their party conference, they were given testosterone jabs just before they left the offices here, so they’d appear all macho and pumped up for the TV cameras. I bet he does the same thing.

        They might be surprised at how badly something like this will rebound on them once it gets into the Twitter or FB-sphere. A whole new level of fair gaming goes on there.

    Howdy – Since I am a NFC chick – is it Steelers tonight?

    • Captain Howdy

      I could care less. Both teams bore me too tears. Sunday..Pats vs Bears!

      • Jimmy3

        The correct answer was “no.” Go Texans.

        • Scream Nevermore

          🙁

          • Captain Howdy

            Forget the Steelers. Pick a team with a future like the Colts.

            • Scream Nevermore

              I have been a Steelers fan since I was 12 – you don’t just walk away from that! I’m going to take my vintage Steel Curtain shirt out of its wrapper and wrap myself in it for a while, to ease the pain.

            • Jimmy3

              Okay, you can put the shirt away now.

            • Scream Nevermore

              I didn’t really take it out – it’s old and fragile, and I don’t want it to fall apart! 😀

    Can’t explain just how beautiful Larry’s house was…
    Way up so high it was surrounded by clouds…
    Larry’s nickname for it was “Heaven”…
    He loved it there..He had a place in LA as well…
    Was one of the 1st to drive a Prius..Which he let me drive..
    Larry was a recovering alcoholic…Which he embraced..
    He always had the most bizarre stories of his life…
    He loved his wife dearly and comforted her till her death..
    He will be missed by many…

        Partied like and with rock stars…
        He told me he was high on LSD during at least one episode…
        He loved people and would clearly share his past…
        He went to AA….He was like no other…He was weird..

              Yes…
              He did have a Liver transplant…

              For quite a long time…He was a remarkable man..

      Thank you for posting here.

      At over 2400′ in elevation, it was high enough to be above the marine layer which covers the coast many mornings. It gives one the feeling that they’re on an island.

      Tony had many pictures of it earlier when Co$ bought it from a realtor website. At the time the speculation was that it would be an exclusive NarCONon facility. This verifies that at least they’re probably raising money for it. I’ll bet that they start all sorts of work without permits on the property. After all, it’s a remote location and building permits are wog laws.

      In tune with Larry’s environmental bent, IIRC, it also had several banks of solar cells.

      • SLIM

        Just to let you know…In case you think I’m a new poster..

        Have talked to Tony about another person brought up here..
        Larry was an acquaintance of mine…Went to a wedding at his home..

        • SLIM

          BTW…It already has a sauna and a pool…
          Which starts inside the house and goes outside…
          Just unbelievable location and gorgeous home..

            The pictures I saw were beautiful, and, IIRC, those were listed in the website.

  • beauty for ashes

    sooo excited to see little davey! unfortunately he was not tanner than tan mom, as i had predicted. but he definitely has better makeup. although the tell tale signs are still there! if you also compare his head on shots as opposed to the three quarters view, his makeup is a little more obvious.

    look at his eyes- the furrow in his brow is actually pronounced more since they decided to dye or fill in his brows. there is a definite droop and the character of his eyes look less defined, and haggard. hence what we used to call “old man drag” blush, bronzer and brows!……….. overcompensating? not feeling well?

    they actually used less foundation this time and probably got a facial before hand. his skin does not look as blotchy , but they did apply bronzer gradient tech, as his forehead is tannest lessening to the collar. at least he is not all one color orange!

    but there is some suspicious puffiness in some areas of his face. and many have pointed out the off color of his hands. i suspect there is a reason why davey is not hitting the tanning bed full time before events anymore!

    congratulations makeup team, its hard to camouflage pure evil!

    • Sir_Real

      It’s getting to the point where his team of makeup magicians are forced to apply all that heavy makeup with a trowel, albeit a gold plated designer one with a diamond encrusted handle (courtesy of the clams/whales of course.)

    • i-Betty

      So funny.

    • Juicer77

      His hair definitely has a been-treated-too-often frizzed out look. It looks overprocessed somehow. It was “hot” that day by English standards, but something is really off with that hair.

    • Jimmy3

      I haven’t seen any “concrete confirmation”, but I’m sure there will be. Why would he be in a London hotel wearing his medal that weekend? The actress’ manager said they were there for a “spectacular celebration.”

      • L. Wrong Hubturd

        English as a second language can be so tough sometimes. I think her manager really meant to call it a disastrous train wreck.

      Her Royal Moneybags looks pretty good in this picture, the best we’ve seen her in a while. Usually she looks like she’s been wrung out and hung out to dry.

      • Missionary Kid

        I don’t usually comment on someone’s looks, but it appears she used a trowel to put on her makeup and even though the lighting is purple, it has enough red in it to help her look more vital.

        She’s got Jenny Linson eye bags – must be a new high-level Sci must-have accessory

    I just watched the Rathbun ambush video, and I literally have tears in my eyes. Not just out of sympathy for Marty, but because — being a bit oversensitive these days — I am so sad to see such hatred masquerading as religion, worse, a religion that pretends it’s doing something special for mankind. Those three people, especially DeVocht, have the vacant eyes and feverish, misguided fanaticism that would do George Baillie and Mary DeMoss (in her former sci incarnation) proud. It would take a whole thesaurus to find enough adjectives to describe their behavior. “Despicable” is a good start.

    • i-Betty

      I wonder when the bullying and stalking of Marty and his family will end, because if a very serious, on-going court case isn’t enough to put the brakes on their behaviour, I don’t know what is.

      Been thinking about you today, Sherb. x

      • Sherbet

        This is what disturbs me so much, Betty: Even with the Rathbun case going on, those people are so arrogant that they go in public, on Marty’s camera, presumably on security camera, to spew their hate. They feel like they have some higher purpose that renders them untouchable. So deluded!

        Thanks for the good thoughts.

        • Jimmy3

          They didn’t even notice he had left the church. That’s what they said, at least. So I assume this encounter started (off-camera) with them coming up and starting a polite conversation. “Hey, how are you? Good to see you. What are you up to lately?” That kinda thing. Then it escalated so damn quick.

          • Sherbet

            I didn’t get that impression. Maybe I saw just an extract. I was struck by the irony that someone that “nobody” cares about (Marty) warranted so much of the trio’s attention. “Get a life,” says DeVocht, as she proceeds to demonstrate how pathetic her own life is.

            • Jimmy3

              I’m only mocking them out 😉 Your take is very correct. Quite ironic

            • Sherbet

              Oh, crap, I didn’t get it, Jimmy. Duh. I’m behind a bit.

            • Jimmy3

              That is ok. I still like you.

            • Sherbet

              I’ll have my Wheaties tomorrow and will be sharp again.

            • Jimmy3

              People here have posted their belief that this may have been a chance encounter, too. Whether it was or not is kind of irrelevant, though, because if even it was random, what they did when they spotted him made them look very bad.

              Surrounding someone in an airport and shouting nonsense in their face is still batshit crazy enough, whether it was stalking or not.

            • Elar Aitch

              Sherb – you’re down on your daily dose of snark, hun!

            • Sherbet

            Ha!

      • Missionary Kid

        IMO, it won’t end until Davy departs or is deposed or the cult really crashes. Davy is following the tech that LRH set down. Unfortunately for him, the playbook he’s following is about as good as a Trabant competing in a Grand Prix, and it’s being played out before a HUGE audience that cannot be lied to or intimidated.

        He probably fears Marty and Mike, so he tries to launch preemptive strikes that he thinks will give him an advantage. It’s all emotion, and for 3 reasons it’s self-destructive: 1) It takes some of his focus away from the real problems that $cientology is facing of legal problems, declining revenues and membership. 2) It may cause him legal problems. 3) Revenge of that type, when Marty has clearly moved on and is far more intelligent than DM, is very self-defeating.

        DM may be more cunning than Marty, but he cannot see his own psychological weaknesses, so he persists in making the same mistakes. I believe there is no one close to tell the emperor he has no clothes. If they did, they’d be punished for not telling an acceptable truth to him.

    • Douglas D. Douglas

      I found myself also feeling sad– sad for the walking husks that are featured in this video. The lack of basic abilities– to deliver a cogent sentence, to look normal, to communicate anything beyond a sort of mad fanaticism– is not at all frightening. It’s piteous.

      • Sherbet

        Although I have zero respect for lrh, I can’t help but believe he, too, would be shocked by the current face of scientology.

        • Mark Foster

          I disagree…see my post down-thread about Dart Smohen´s e-book…LRH was a fucking lunatic.
          From the e-book mentioned: ¨One thing Hubbard could not stand was if someone displayed abilities or was successful to a point ´where they diminished his own light´. The author then describes how Hubbard went on to destroy top executives and tech terminals. If you haven´t read Hubbard´s Affirmations, check them out. In my opinion, calling Hubbard ¨an evil, dark motherfucker¨ is putting it nicely. He´d be applauding the current shenanigans.

          • Sherbet

            I stand corrected, Mark F. You are, of course, absolutely right.

      • They truly are walking empty husks.

    • Missionary Kid

      There’s no need for tears (but help yourself). You’re seeing bullbaiting in action. Marty was trained in it, and probably used it himself when he was in. (You know how shit rolls downhill, and he was an executive, and I’m sure that DM made sure that he participated in the degradation of the lower echelon).

      A soft answer turneth away wrath — when the video camera is running, and it makes the aggressor look like an ass.. There’s nothing like being calm, cool, and collected when faced by three senior clams, including a once good looking woman who now seems to be a tired harridan who can’t let it go, and only makes things worse..

      Actually, I’m glad they confronted Marty. They look like such big dildoes, it’s incredible. Read the comments on Reddit. Marty has a 97% upvote percentage, and, wile I didn’t read them all, people are being educated about $cientology, bullbaiting, and the fact that its a part of their basic training as clams.

      Someone posted an earlier airport confrontation, where marty wasn’t as calm, but he was not in the terminal building itself. Dinky Dick Micavige (I’m adding that to his nicknames), made a huge faux pas when he sent those three refugees from the Hole to confront Marty.

      As I’ve said elsewhere, foot, meet bullet. Tick Tock Davy, and you’re speeding up the clock.

    Since 2007 the total number of drug

    related criminal offence
    s has been on the rise and their share of the reported
    volume of offending is also growing. In 2011 approximately 2.8 thousand individuals (1.2% of all offenders) were
    p
    rosecuted
    for drug

    related criminal offences, which mostly involved the production,
    trafficking
    , and selling of pervitin
    and cannabis
    . 2
    .
    5 thousand people were
    charg
    ed
    . Final co
    urt sentences were imposed on 1.9
    thousand
    people,
    41% of whom had no previous convictions. The most common sanction imposed was a term of suspended
    imprisonment. As in the previous year, women accounted for approximately 15% of
    those prosecuted,
    charg
    ed, and
    sentenced for drug

    related offences. The highest rates of drug offending per number of inhabitants were registered in
    Prague and the Vysočina and Karlovy Vary regions. A total of 1,169 misdemeanours of the unauthorised handling of
    drugs, mostly inv
    olving the unauthorised possession
    of drugs for personal use, were dealt with in 2011.
    According to the official police data, 16% of all the criminal offence
    s that were cleared up had been committed under
    the inf
    luence of addictive substances, with alcohol
    being involved in 90% of the cases. Estimates of secondary drug

    related offences were made again for 2011: drug use
    rs are estimated to have committed 33.4% of the offences that
    w
    ere reported and 28.5% of those selected criminal offences (especially those against property) that were cleared
    up (mostly thefts).

      The master plays his own song, in front of C&W royalty, and you can see the respect on their faces. Damn, that song was first a hit in 1961. Willie wrote that 53 years ago, when he was 28.

      I’m not much of a C & W fan, but Willie transcends the genre. Listening to that arrangement, I hear jazz and other styles of music. They call him an outlaw, but what he really is, is a person who writes, plays, and sings music. They were just too stupid to realize how great he was, so they gave him that tag.

Dim bulbs and night lights can be useful. (Our brains are not always our friends. (In the neuro-evolutionary sense, not the Dianonsense sense,)

    Thoughtful probably nailed it, re: what happened in LAX.
    http://markrathbun.wordpress.com/2014/10/19/scientology-top-management/comment-page-1/#comment-323780

    “You know how this would have gone down: DM
    screaming on a conference call in his typical Philly broken English
    about how everything is going wrong and on top of it all, “…you muther
    f**kers won’t do anything to getting ethics in. How come I know Marty’s
    in Los Angeles right now and will be leaving tomorrow at 5:30 pm? Why is
    it I know his every move but you don’t. Cause I’m on post! Because you
    make it my job and you make it mine. You leave EVERYTHING up to me. Even
    the Squirrel Busters were not that. Those lobotomies couldn’t tie their
    own shoes, but they did it. Their job: put on the pressure, same as
    you. But you WON’T go down there and lift a finger to put in ethics.
    BECAUSE YOU CAN’T BE BOTHERED. But I can.”

    Then Yager or Jenny would have spoken up (not Bloomberg) and said,
    “Yes Sir, no Sir, we can and we will do something about it right away.
    We’ll go down and kick Marty Rathbun’s ass…”

    DM: “NO YOU WON’T! No. Why? You don’t get it. Because you let HIM
    kick your ass, and then you can call the cops and it’s over. You go to
    the dentist. He goes to jail. You push the buttons, that’s what you do.
    Witnesses. ‘Pathetic. You’re nothing. You create no effect. Nobody gives
    a fuck about you. You’re an embarrassment.’ — you get right in his
    face, 3 on 1. Intimidate. ‘Committing suppressive acts full time! Nobody
    notices you’re gone! Nobody! Wow. Why don’t you do something with your
    life? Do anything?”

    Then all three would have been, “Yes Sir. Sir, that’s brilliant. We’ll get down there immediately and confront him.”

    DM: “Yager, if you don’t get him to smack you — Bloomberg, you run
    the video. If you don’t get him to smack you, guess who is going to
    smack you when I get back about 500 times harder?”

    MY: “You Sir.”

    DM: “No, everybody in the hole gets a free punch. Then me.”

    Transcripts of the meeting would have been printed within 30 minutes,
    with a 5-hour deadline for immediate compliance. They drill and
    rehearse for 2 hours. Bloomberg holds the camera — who carries a big
    video camera around these days? Every phone has great video now. But no,
    Brownberg just happens to have a large camera in his pocket so he could
    video… what? The inside of LAX? Funny, I knew him for years. Never saw
    him carry a camera.

    With their authorized statements memorized and rehearsed, they all go
    down, Yager does his best — he is a natural leerer you have to give him
    that. But when Marty counters with “Would you people please move on.”
    They all laugh, why? That was one of the very lines one of their coaches
    gave them while they were rehearsing. And they probably commented on
    it. So when Marty repeated the very same line, they laughed because it
    was funny in that context.”

    • Well that little airport stunt has well and truly backfired on them now.
      Davey have you thought about joining Ron on his target 2 “research” that way he could come back to Teegeeack quicker if you give him a hand.

    This LAX video would be excellent training material for Scientologists about the Emotional Tone Scale (invention by LR Hubbard).
    What I see here is a perfect demonstration of a) covert hositility (‘1.1’), especially with Yager, also with Bloomberg, but he also seems a bit ashamed about the whole thing and b) anger with Jenny. The latter also seems to be stuck in it. So here we have a perfect stuck tonelevel.
    The title of this instruction video could be: Lower Tonelevels in Real Life (as performed by professional Scientologists).
