LEAK: Scientology celebrities are stepping up their involvement behind the scenes

Kirstie_Alley_Jenna_ElfmanOur tipsters have sent us several emails and fliers lately that suggest to us that there’s something interesting going on with Scientology’s celebrities.

If you recall, we suggested in recent months that we had noticed a marked increase of activity from some of the most reliable Scientology actor types. Kirstie Alley, Kelly Preston, and Nancy Cartwright all recently completed “Operating Thetan Level 7,” one of the most difficult high-level courses on “The Bridge,” and one that can take years to finish. Also, actress Marisa Nichols finished OT 8, the highest level of all, which is only delivered on board Scientology’s private cruise ship the Freewinds. Cartrwight, Alley, and Michelle Stafford have also recently been spotted on the ship.

Now, there’s another wrinkle. In emails and fliers we received this week, some of Scientology’s celebrities are also making appearances at church events, and it’s being used as a way of drumming up more involvement from existing church members. We’ll show you what we mean.

First, there was this flier that enticed Scientologists to show up for an event Wednesday night at the Hollywood Celebrity Centre which featured Jenna Elfman

 
Jenna-Elfman--Going-Clear-and-OT

 
Note the emphasis on existing members, and that no new recruits would be allowed in — this event was intended to get stalled Scientologists back on the Bridge.

We were also sent this email, which says that Kirstie Alley will be appearing at an event in East Grinstead, England, where Scientology’s UK headquarters are located at Saint Hill Manor…

 

Dear Friends,

You MUST come to Saint Hill to see these OT’s, to hear their OT data, and to GO OT!

This Sunday Clive Rabey is going to explain why OTV is NOT a rest point on the Bridge, and HOW to get yourself sorted out so you can get onto OT VI and VII this year (NOT next lifetime J)

FREE event – 3 pm for tea, finishing at 6 pm for a nice dinner with OT friends!

7 March 2015 – Kirstie Alley is going to tell you how she got onto and through OTVII. And then through Super Power. And was a driving force behind the Padova Ideal Org.

Afternoon Tea and dinner, £15 per person. PLUS She will give an OT Hatting course on Causation and Havingness.

We are ABLE UK, and are here to make the able more able. Come to these events, and you will BE more able, DO something very prosurvival, and HAVE more abilities and creativity to BE, DO and HAVE an OT life, a better game, more Freedoms, better Purposes, Happiness and Havingness.

Contact me to confirm. 0776 321 9614

Then there’s this email, which says an unnamed Grammy Award-winning musician (who has to be Chick Corea) would be showing up at graduation last night at the Fort Harrison Hotel in Clearwater, Florida.

 

Subject: LATE BREAKING NEWS!!!

FLAG GRADUATION LATE BREAKING NEWS!

This Friday, you’ll hear the fantastic story and wins of a 22-time Grammy Award winner who just finished Solo NOTs yesterday!

We also have the Jive Aces who flew in from the UK performing at this week’s graduation!

And finally, a minor Scientology celebrity, but someone who is very well known inside the organization, voice actor and musician David Pomeranz, is lending his name to a contest that our commenters noticed recently which may benefit a Scientology school to the tune of $20,000.

The Scientology school, the Washburn Academy, is vying neck and neck with the Humane Society for a technology upgrade from a local company. And now, Scientology is trying to put a thumb on the scale with one of its celebrities…

Subject: Please vote for Washburn Academy to get their grant!! :o)

Hello!

I would like to ask a favor – one which will definitely benefit us all. In Clearwater, our son, Nick, attends Washburn Academy, which is purely an LRH Study Tech School and they are in the running to receive a sizable government grant ($20K) to help expand their premises. I’m asking all my friends to click on the link below and find, “Washburn Academy” and VOTE for it. You can vote from the same device once a day or more from different ones, if you are so inclined. The competition ends on Feb, 28th.

This great school with Standard Tech deserves to flourish and we can help them do so by making sure they get this grant.

Here is the link and instructions:

Here is what you do:

1. Go to www.milner.com/jumpstart
2. Click the big VOTE button.
3. Select “Washburn Academy” in the 16+ employee category.
4. Enter in the verification code.
5. Click “cast vote”

Thanks so much!

Love,
DAVID and KELLY

 
We were pretty struck by this pattern, so we asked former Scientology spokesman Mike Rinder if he also thought this marked a significant change going on in Scientology.

“Oh, I agree completely,” he told us. Rinder said there has been a noticeable shift recently in the role of celebrities, and he thinks it’s related to Scientology leader David Miscavige’s ongoing problems with dwindling membership and horrific public perception, particularly with Alex Gibney’s documentary Going Clear coming to HBO on March 29.

“Generally the use of the celebrities has been for dealing with the world outside Scientology, for public relations and for giving an impression to the outside world,” he says. “But now, we’re seeing them being used to keep the flock from running out the gate. And suddenly, here are three important celebrities doing events in a single week? Jenna, Kirstie, and Chick all pitching to the internal public?”

Rinder agreed that we were seeing something new. “They’re trying to use the celebrities to handle the sheeple. Until this point, the celebrities had been for the outside world. It’s the first time I’ve seen this.

“I think this is very indicative of a panic situation,” he added.

He also made sure we noticed that in the message about Kirstie Alley appearing at Saint Hill, the email was sent out by ABLE UK. ABLE, which oversees the Narconon drug rehab network, is here talking about encouraging Scientologists to “go OT,” dropping all pretense that it isn’t an arm of Scientology itself.

“And Kirstie Alley is going to talk about how she got up the Bridge? Will she explain how much special treatment she received that helped her get there? The people listening won’t get that kind of treatment, but will she tell them that?”

Rinder agreed with us that it’s really unusual for a Scientology celebrity to take part in an event like this.

“Kirstie must be on some kind of amends program or something. Why is she in the UK doing this? It’s strange,” Rinder says.

And if you have time, turn your phone off, wait about 5 minutes, and turn it on again, which will most likely reassign its IP address, so you'll get another vote.

        Rainy weather encourages sink-holes in some parts of Florida, doesn’t it?

        • InClearwater

          Oh, absolutely, especially when the rainy weather sets in after a drought. Unfortunately, I have never heard of sinkholes near Flag. That doesn’t mean they haven’t happened in downtown Clearwater; it’s just that I haven’t heard of them. Dunedin (very close by, berthing quarters close by) is a whole nother story.

  • I’m actually really surprised that Marisol, Kirstie and Nancy took this long to complete their OT levels actually. I remember when the Basics were released in 2008. Marisol Nichols was on the speakers at the event, and she spoke about how she was so jealous of new members just starting in Scientology, and everything about reading the new Basics line up was WOW! WOW! WOW! I know people with less money who went up to OTVIII in 5 years. You think with all that money they have, they would have finished going up their bridge a long-time ago. I guess it wouldn’t have mattered if they were going to have to re-do it with the release of GATII.

      I really do feel pity for the rank and file church members. I see people with the best of intentions squeezed from one side by a crazy organization and ridiculed from the other by society as a whole, and my heart goes out to them. Still, an addict needs to hit a bottom before they’ll make a change, and this is all part of the process that will bleed this organization dry, so I can pity them but be glad when their good intentions are met with failure all at the same time. Here’s another example of how scientology, just by existing, twists everything.

    I’m sure someone has posted this downthread, but Pomeranz lied in his email. It is NOT a government grant as he describes — it is grant from Milner,
    a “business to business office solutions company” who is “giving away
    technology makeover grants to two 501(c)3 organizations in the Tampa Bay
    area.” Any Scion who votes will see this. Government as benefactor here? Not so much. It’s a wog company.

      I am still seething and am replying to my own post! These assholes don’t give a crap about the businesses or even the children in the Clearwater-Tampa area… they have let their own city become a ghost town as a long as they have the control and maintain the facade for their few sheeple. So many retailers, shops, business owners have shuttered their doors because of them. And now, they are asking for a handout from one of those businesses–while their own coffers are numbered in the billion category! Revolts me. Ok, my kitties and Bunkeroos can come out from under the couch now. Rant over.

      Oh how wrong you are Dave & Co.

      • romanesco

        Washbrain now has only 74.2% of what the kittehs and doggos have. The scilons seem to have given up.

        • BFM

          Sciloons VS SPs/WOGs 0-1. No chance in hell they could win while the whole bunker is on the case:)! I voted at least a dozen times over the last few days.

          • Dee Findlay-DeElizabethan

            Thanks to the Bunker and the Face Book groups on it big time.

            • BFM

              True! It shows we are a far bigger force in numbers than the Sciloons could ever muster.

        • NOLAGirl

          They’ll be back for the final round.

    Subject: The 14th Prize Winner—Vote for the Humane Society of Pinellas—Voting Results Update!

    Hi, there!

    I have a favor to ask of you, one which will definitely benefit all of us. In Going Clear Water, Florida, our son, Knicked, attends Wasburned Academy, which is purely a $cientology Front Group. They think they’re in the running to receive a sizable government grant ($20K) to help expand their premises. Instead, I’m asking all my friends to click on the link below and find, “Humane Society of Pinellas,” and vote for THEM. You can vote from the same device once a day or more from different ones, if you are so inclined. The competition ends TODAY (presumably at midnight, Eastern Standard Time)!

    This 501(c)3 nonprofit organization has been caring for homeless pets in Pinellas County Florida since 1949 and deserves to flourish and prosper. We can help them do so by making sure they get this grant.

    Here is the link and instructions:

    1. Go to http://www.milner.com/jumpstart
    2. Click the big VOTE button.
    3. Select “Humane Society of Pinellas” in the 16+ employee category.
    4. Enter in the verification code.
    5. Click “cast vote”

    Voting results update:
    • Humane Society of Pinellas: 6,994 votes
    • Wasburned Academy: 5,190 votes

    Asta Spare is a proud student at Wasburned Academy which recently held a $pecial $ciences $eminar. Proceeds from the sale of brownies laced with pot at that event went to the Humane Society. In the picture that accompanies this e-mail, you’ll see the 14th prize winner with her entry, “Fellatio. Do Not Swallow!”

    Thanks so much!

    ML,
    DAVID and GOLIATH

    Fuck you Dave.

  • Lurkness

    Do we know who currently owns the now-Ideal Belleair mission in FL? It has been around for some time.

    • scnethics

      Kathy Feshbach opened it and I figure she still owns it, but not sure.

      • TheHoleDoesNotExist

        She’s still hanging around anyway. For those looking for a picture – it’s in a crappy strip mall, but the entrance is actually in back – just follow the dumpter trail.

    • Sidney18511

      Anybody know the address? Then I can look it up.

      • scnethics

        2907 West Bay Drive – Belleair Bluffs, Florida 33770

    • Sidney18511

      It appears that a corp. owns the entire strip mall. Maybe someone else might have better luck then me and recognize a name. Give it a whirl. It is listed under 2701.

      Oooooo……I’m gonna go back and search Feshback. I’ll let you if I find anything.

  • Just Dee

    I don’t tweet but maybe some people who do could tweet Jason Beghe, Christian Stolte, as well as a few others, to get their support for the animal shelter?

    ETA; I will attempt it if no one else can do it.

    • HillieOnTheBeach

      Humane Society of Pinellas is a done deal, as is, unfortunately, Washburn

      Just a suggestion. This is the first round. There’s a 10 finalist round from March 16 to 31.

      Perhaps sollicit their help if Washburn gets too far ahead then.

      • Just Dee

        OK I am officially confused. After today, does the Humane Society win or are they just in the running?

        • Eivol Ekdal
        • HillieOnTheBeach

          From my quick read:

          There’s two categories: 15 or less employees and 16 or more.

          Top three vote-getters from both categories go to final round. Milner Advisory Committee chooses 4 more. All ten finalists will be announced March 2 and voting begins for the grant winner March 16 and goes through March 31.

          • Just Dee

            Thanks to you and Eivol for the rules. I’ve been reading a few myself; including Washburn’s FB page. We seriously need to get others involved for this final round. It’s great that voting will be through the 31st of March. After the documentary airs on HBO, hopefully we can expose Washburn as just another scientology front group that’s trying to take money away from legitimate charities.

            • HillieOnTheBeach

              You know, Dee. I actually resent Milner’s complicated 2-phase system to allocate what is actually a very modest grant.

              It forces charities to spend undue amounts of time for already busy staff to sollicit supporter votes and send traffic to Milner’s site, and this over a month-long process. If it wasn’t for Washburn’s presence, we wouldn’t have gotten involved.

              I think Milner has imposed on those charities and the minimal votes on many of them may show that they either didn’t think investing the time in harvesting support was worth it, or tragically showed exactly how much they need help.

            • Just Dee

              Yeah, they are taking this a bit too far. Obviously I’ll vote anyway, for the furry little animals as well as showing scientology there are a lot more out than in.

            • TheHoleDoesNotExist

              I thought the same, Hillie. It’s an extraordinary time consuming contest And it’s complicated. In fact, Milner gets to throw in some of their own choices after the prelims as I read it. Wish I could see a list of staff of this newer Tampa branch of Milner’s. I find the whole thing strange, to be honest.

    • madame duran

      So, like, did the 3000 Facebook Scientologists that “WTF.com” boasted about yesterday went turncoat and voted for the animal shelter instead of Washburn Academy? I’m confused.

      • scnethics

        And don’t forget the Pomeranz letter! Maybe there are more like 500 scientologists?

      • Ben Franklin

        WTF.com is full of crap like any other Ronbot, throwing big numbers with no actual facts to back them up

      • Graham

        Most countries have fewer than 3000 Scientologists so I think WTF must have been using TR-L Lie-Tech when he claimed that an individual Scieno could have that many mates (Unless individual BTs can have their own Facebook accounts?).

        • Robert Eckert

          No, Marco’s Facebook page genuinely does have a huge list of “friends”. Not many of them bothered to respond to his rallying cry, though.

  • outraged

    Interesting Factoid:

    The three most Prominent Male $cions are very famous gay celebrities.
    NONE of them are out.
    But Hollywood and men who work out in gyms late at night in NYC,
    know the truth.

    • Juicer77

      Just for clarity, it’s been pretty well discussed and agreed that John Travolta is gay. (Tory Christman says he is, for sure, and she knew him long ago). If you’re referring to Tom Cruise, many state that he’s asexual with very little knowledge or interest in maintaining a meaningful physical or emotional relationship. I’m not sure who #3 is?
      You’re correct that staying in the closet is the only course of action in $camatology.

      • outraged

        Will Smith
        Tommy Boy

      • Just Dee

        John Travolta is NOT gay! Didn’t he prove that the other night touching those women at the Oscars. It totally convinced me! lol

  • chukicita

    It’s been raining all day long in Belleair. You’d think those OTs would have done something about that.

      • InClearwater

        Not to mention the live oak trees crapping all over everywhere. My car has a green cast. Grateful for the rain tamping that pollen down. Want to take car to get washed, but I know it’s useless, as it will be covered in a green cast within one or two days. Allergies smallergies.

        • TheHoleDoesNotExist

          The critters, even the bugs, get confused when it’s winter one morning, summer during the afternoon, and spring overnight. I think even the pollen is off schedule.

      • Draco

        Hole, you know you supposed to stop all that weather control thing when you leave the cult. Be a good little SP now and leave the clouds alone!

        • TheHoleDoesNotExist

          Even the hurricane clouds? Hmmm?

          • Draco

            ‘Specially the hurricane clouds! Unless, of course, you can localise it to about 2 blocks in downtown Clearwater…

        • Todd Tomorrow

          I always have one to many Greyhounds than I can really afford. They’ll call me to foster one that is troubled from the track and I can’t ever give them back. Actually got yelled at last time.

        • Draco

          I want that kittie between the bulldog and the basset.

    • Todd Tomorrow

      No, they need to spend their time neutering and spaying and petting the homeless pups and kittens. They don’t want to be declared or unfair gamed.

    • madame duran

      The urge to spread cult awareness tells me the Humane Society should know about the significance of their soon-to-be win. But then the charitable side of me says, “they really don’t need to know. It is enough for them to feel supported”.

      • Allie

        Agree. They deserve to win on their own merit and good deeds.

    • scnethics

      IMO, no.

    • Draco

      Nope. It’s a random act of kindness. For all the fur babies.

      • beauty for ashes

        That’s my favorite kind, when you just slip some money into somebody’s purse or do something on their behalf, and they never find out.

  • Silence of the Clams

    Who but an idiot like Dave would assume this trotting out of b-listers would be the panacea for all the Scilon ills? He moves under the assumption people look up or aspire to be like these actors; that they might listen to them and ignore the avalanche of information out there warning people to stay away from this cult.

    I haven’t seen this HBO documentary yet but it must be good. These scallions (oops…spell check…I mean Scilons) are shitting their pants with worry.

    This is fun!

    • Allie

      I think Alex Gibney has quite a faithful following. His past documentaries have been excellent, they have received great reviews and many folks who have already seen this film are encouraging their friends, neighbors , etc. to see it. Alex has much more clout than any celeb I think.

  • Vaquera

    O/T: How many dates do you go on before telling the guy that you’re a Scio-watcher and a Bunker junkie?

    • NOLAGirl

      At least three or four. You want him to see you as compassionate and dedicated, not as a loony-bird. 🙂

      • Vaquera

        I suppose if he’s a loony, I could use it as a deal breaker! 🙂

      • shasha40

        But what if you are a Looney bird ..? Birds of a feather ! 😀

        • NOLAGirl

          That’s great too. I married a loony, I love him. 😀

          • shasha40

            Me too , but my Bunker addiction came after . I told him how he’s really gonna appreciate me and Scoopy Ortega when the shit hits the fan ! Tick , tock , Davey . 🙂

          • Vaquera

            I rate pretty low on the loony scale. Maybe I’ll make him watch “Going Clear” and then judge his temperature.

            • TheHoleDoesNotExist

              That’s actually a good idea, but keep the pitcher well iced.

      • BFM

        And when does one tell one is an ex-scientologist..?

        I stopped telling my dates that, because it wasn’t very successful. Of course when things will become more serious… ill come out of the closet, but by that time I hope I know that person well enough that it won’t be much of an issue.

        • beauty for ashes

          God dating is so complicated! I used to worry about telling dates about my rare chronic illness. So much fun!
          I have purposefully stopped dating for the past few years, because I knew that the people that I would probably attract were more dysfunctional than me! That and my therapist kind of pointed out some of my bad choices in men. I was a serial monogamist for a long time. So its probably better to focus on me for a while. 🙂 I highly recommend it!

          • BFM

            Yeah beauty, I hear you. I have a little pause period myself. Hard to explain a person in the courting period why your kids are facing disconnection from you. Why some family members shun you. That ultimately leads to questions about the cult…. the dates I had were empathic and understanding at first but ultimately got freaked out while finding out more and more.

            Sorry to hear you have a chronic illness, I have one too, so I can relate. In the dating scene I have a double handicap, longtime ex-scio and a chronic illness. But as I function fully, work long hours, it isn’t that visible on the surface. Nor is the Scio background and the effects it has on my current life. At some point one has to share…. and until now, it hasn’t worked out too well.

            So many aspects of life are affected by the venom that is scientology. Hard to fathom at times.

    • HillieOnTheBeach

      Optimally he already knows because that’s where you met. 🙂

        You are adorable. Wouldn’t that be funny?

          That would be great! We have Bunker babies, Bunker pets, why not Bunker dating/love?

          • Todd Tomorrow

            I kinda had a boy crush on longtimelurker, and then he left! I even told my girlfriend!

            • beauty for ashes

              I think we all did! Although I have a feeling he was about 15 yrs younger than me!

      • Vaquera

        In that case, he’ll remain blissfully unaware.

    • TheHoleDoesNotExist

      Definitely before carnal knowledge, after he’s paid the dinner bill, and probably during the 4th Mojito.

      • Techie

        Won’t it be obvious that you keep interrupting the conversation to refresh the browser on your tablet? And then giggle uncontrollably for a bit before tapping in a new comment? I know it is fashionable nowadays to walk around with your nose in a screen, but a true Bunker addiction would exceed the norm a bit.

        • Vaquera

          Hee-hee. A little while ago he phoned and in the course of a “comm” he asked what I’ve been doing today. Without a hitch I said, “I’ve been doing some research.” Yeah, Bunker research…that’s the ticket.

        Well, he’s been sitting straight upright, SOUND ASLEEP, on my sofa with his hands folded in his lap for the past hour. Guess I’ll take that as a strike against my scintillating company.

        • Hingle McCringleberry

          Or, he feels comfortable enough to fall asleep. People are sometimes a bit too quick to read things into situations. The ancient greek word is eisegesis. So, blah, blah, blah, I wouldn’t hold back on things that interest you. Standing up against people that abuse other people is nothing to be ashamed about. We just have the side benefit that Scio-watching is also interesting.

  • BFM

    I can understand why JT isn’t allowed to speak before ANY public for a while (Oscars).
    I am speculating as to why the “Most dedicated Scientologist in the world” is remaining silent. Could it be because the winner of the Freedumb medal of valor winner won’t speak for just 29 people?
    Won’t the other celebs be wondering too? And wondering why they have to get their hands dirty while TC apparently is on LOA? I hope this stuff will create some dissention between the celebs.

    • Allie

      I’m wondering why JT or Tom aren’t speaking out. Do you think they’re saving the “best” for last–i.e. closer to March 29?

      • BFM

        As for JT, I really think he has orders to keep his trap for the moment. FYI, Miscavige loathes JT, he is trash to him.

        As for TC, I can’t be sure. But he definitely would never ever speak for a “little beings audience” of just 29. His ego is just as big as that of DM.

          • Todd Tomorrow

            We went in last night and the Dr. looked at it said it was broken but after x-rays he said it is sprained badly. Kinda loopey on the pain killers. Can’t fit into any shoes:( But could have been worse. Thanks!

            • TheHoleDoesNotExist

              That sounds bad. From all that I’ve known who had this going on, don’t resume normal until doctor says so. Otherwise, it gets hurt again but worse, and then you can be laid up for many many months. It sucks! They make shoe thingies that you can wear meantime at medical support retail. Here’s to fast healing!

            • Todd Tomorrow

              I’m told to spend the week in bed. We are babysitting so i just figured i’d read children’s books. Yesterday some asshole in a Prius hit me in the bike lane and sent me onto the sidewalk. They left but two strangers got out to help me. No, one wasn’t TC!

            • Rita Gregory

              I’m so glad you went and got checked out. Take it easy and take care of yourself!

            • Todd Tomorrow

              Thanks so much!

            • Draco

              Yay! That’s good news. Enjoy the pain killers 😀 – loopey is a whole lot better than pain! Glad it’s not broken – that would have 6 weeks in a cast and that’s just a drag!

            • Smokey Wallisa

              In his early eighties my dad sprained his foot. I picked my mother and father up to take them to dinner. When he got out of the car and walked with his cane to the restaurant I looked down and realized he had on one dress shoe and one sandal. I asked him why and he said the dress shoe didn’t fit his hurt foot. So I asked him why he didn’t just wear two sandals and he replied with a straight face “I thought it would look strange”. He was a funny guy.

              The funniest of it is that it kind of makes sense.

            • PreferToBeAnon2

              OT… Todd, make sure you get an MRI of it — not just an xray which often does not show hairline fractures. I had the same scenario and ended up doing a few weeks of PT on a broken ankle. Only discovered it after the fact when it wasn’t healing. It has never healed right.

      I predict the one on the right will not last too long on staff. Imagine the insouciance of tying your silly paisley “girl tie” around your neck instead of through your collar. That will not fly with the local neighborhood Uniform Nazi. But it is probably just the tip of he iceberg with this one. Hope she wakes up and gets a real job somewhere soon.

      • HillieOnTheBeach

        Hasn’t been Comm Eved yet, you think?

      • Eivol Ekdal

        And you don’t have to look far for the source of the KR.

    • TheHoleDoesNotExist

      I just Had to go look, didn’t I. Yikes. As Techie mentions, those blue paisley ties are going to be a problem. All the girls – forget the make up and hair products. You won’t be afford to pay for them unless Kathy Feshbach, the walking ATM machine, doles some out – if you’re really, really upstat. You still won’t have time to apply them, and you’ll be too zombied out from lack of sleep to do it right. Your coordination will completely distorted so you won’t even be able to tie those ties. That boyfriend with the sci jewelry – that will be pawned for pennies on the dollar to buy your Ramen noodles and tea bags. Your clothes will all be faded from being washed together with cheap detergent and you won’t have time to iron – and you probably already sold that at the Wagon Wheel flea market. It won’t be long now that mommy’s going to take all your electronic devices away – once you start looking and smelling like the average staff member.

    off topic slightly, i am referencing the scottish warrior costume here, but relating it to sea org costumes in general and how they were perceived during the 70s vietnam era. was that a problem for scientology? im just an interested citizen, never been in, and i remember it being apparent that wearing military uniforms in public back then was controversial at times. is that whole naval thing just worn at private functions? were scientologists able to get out of going to vietnam by proclamation of membership? just curious.

    • Techie

      In the early 70s, when the Vietnam war was a big issue in the US the Sea Org was mainly tootling around on ships in the Mediterranean. Since they were on ships it was not seen as odd that they were in uniform. Later on they moved to Daytona and then to Clearwater. The initial advance crew were in civvies under a fake corporation name. By the time they started wearing uniforms again the Vietnam stigma was just about over. There were organizations in Los Angeles throughout that time and at Saint Hill in England that wore naval uniforms for ceremonies but for everyday use they wore something like a business suit that did not seem so out of place if they had to go out in public. I don’t know if they could get out of the draft in the 70s, but later on there was an order for everyone to become a minister (10 day course) so they could claim a religious exemption if the draft started up again. I haven’t seen your user name before, if you are new: Welcome to the bunker.

      • RMycroft

        10 full days for the minister course? They must have lacked-off later and dropped to 2 full days/5 evenings. Now they’re up to 5 full days.

            In a sense I agree, although as you say he might also recruit for co$ in the process and he uses co$ address and tel#.

      • Betsy

        Duh, I’m bad at these things, so can you explain Quick Flag to me? I see it on the Right side of the list. When I hit it it seems to turn the one line that I hit purple; but the course itself remains blue. Am I really flagging the course? Is there a way to flag for an entire area?

        One course in Las Vegas is titled “Feel 10 Years Yunger!” …and lern to spel liek us…

        • Pierrot
          • Betsy

            OK, I read the QF write up and will try. So that actually flags them, I assume.

            • Pierrot

              We certainly hope so. Google Doc is fairly slow these last few days, it might be due to Month End processing.
              The daily wip list the most recent ads and collect ads every 2nd hours during “peak” periods, afternoon & evening est.

            • Betsy

              I just figured out what my problem is. I have a Mac laptop with a touchpad, not a mouse. I don’t seem to be able to Click-Hold-Click the next-Hold and so on. Once I have hit click on a line, even under QF, I can’t hold the touchpad down and move to the next. So I think I’m going to have to do one at a time. I DID go to the WIP list and kill a bunch. Well, I’m retired. I can spend some time doing this.

        • Pierrot

          At the top left of the spreadsheet grid, you will see some tabs, for the time being the Daily Wip Tab is the third one, click on it to get the fresh ads and flag them the old fashion way.
          With the QF the actual link stays blue and the QF link turns purple.
          Ask away if you have any problem.

          • Betsy

            OK, I found the Daily Wip…and went to the list. Are these the most brand-new ads? (I just went through and flagged a bunch of them.)

            So (more duh) when I use QF, and the link stays blue, that still means it’s flagged, right? It then loads a page that tells me it’s flagged. But that doesn’t seem any quicker than the other way, where you click on the link, see the course, flag it, and return. I’m sure I’m doing this wrong or not understanding.

            • Robert Eckert

              Daily Wip is, indeed, the most brand-new. If you don’t have a bunch of time, hitting a batch of the newest is a good thing. For some reason ads flagged when they are new go down easier, while old ads get “sticky” (one theory is that the algorithm counts how many flags versus how many people have opened the ad without flagging so that old ads accumulate views).

            • Betsy

              Thanks for the info. I think I’ll go to the Daily WIP first as you suggest.

    Hi, there!

    I have a favor to ask of you, one which will definitely benefit all of us. In Going Clear Water, Florida, our son, Knicked, attends Wasburned Academy, which is purely a $cientology Front Group. They think they’re in the running to receive a sizable grant ($20K) to help expand their premises. Instead, I’m asking all my friends to click on the link below and find, “Humane Society of Pinellas,” and vote for THEM. You can vote from the same device once a day or more from different ones, if you are so inclined. The competition ends TODAY (presumably at midnight, Eastern Standard Time)!

    This 501(c)3 nonprofit organization has been caring for homeless pets in Pinellas County Florida since 1949 and deserves to flourish and prosper. We can help them do so by making sure they get this grant.

    Here is the link and instructions:

    1. Go to http://www.milner.com/jumpstart

    3. Select “Humane Society of Pinellas” in the 16+ employee category.

      Bridge “makes” Clear bracelets and OT bracelets that are sold through the org bookstores. I’m sure they have a jeweler make them, and are looking for a new contract with a new jewelry maker?
      ……………

      • There’s a Bridge Pub employee who owns a jewelry store—they don’t promote any Sci association at all with their store. I discovered this the other day when looking for that jewelry store that guy’s check was made out too in Tony’s post. Made me think of a friend in Hemet who’s neighbor’s house–residential area–was listed as a jewelry store. I dug in there and that neighbor of her’s is a sci and another bunkerite filled me in (via email, not giving identifiers publicly) that they’re a bridge employee….and their store has a REAL store now….all by gold base…..

        email if you’re interested in more info on this….i find it bizarre!!!

        • aegerprimo

          Good info! This gets me excited because it deserves investigation….
          (and journalistic investigation?)

          • the one by my friend i’m gonna really investigate more…..my theory—and i’ll look into this too—is that perhaps scis have jewelry businesses to make it easier for people to sell their own jewelry/heirlooms to pay for services….there are restrictions in many places about buying used jewelry—having to ensure it’s not stolen, etc….but if it’s sci owned and the money gained goes direct to the person’s sci account, i can see them possibly trying to skirt around those things…..cuz what are wog rules? right?? i bet there’s a sci owned store in all the major locations—clearwater, LA, maybe portland–dunno…and there’s definitely one in hemet!!!

It’s like one of those kabong in the head realizations, like when people say “then the realization hit me”. Kabong!

      I’d even go so far as to say the Bunker’s momentum as a serious $cien foe, is hitting critical mass right about now. It’s thrilling and exhausting at the same time. I don’t want to miss anything but that’s impossible. I just gotta snatch and grab what I can, when I can.

      Thanks Jenny. From the numbers it looks like Washburn isn’t even trying anymore. They haven’t updated the fb post since yesterday and the number of members still posting and sharing it are slim.

      • Eivol Ekdal

        The top two in each category go through to the final round of voting.
        So HS and WA have won this round.

        • noseinabk

          I have my calender marked for the 16th. Wish we had caught this sooner and held off both the MLK group and Washburn.

          • Eivol Ekdal

            It is actually more complicated than that…
            Round 2:

      OH MY Jenny! Take a chill pill… the Bunkeroos love kitties and doggies, and DO NOT love $cientology. Humane Society for the win…already.
      Remind us for the second round, but not so much.

      • noseinabk

        I wonder if Jenny may have posted this one early just to be a smart ass because of the complaints on the last notice.

        • flyonthewall

          asshattery in the bunker!? I don’t believe it

      • Enturbulated Masterbator

        Jenny chill? I don’t think so. She’s too enturbulated after a long day working the Terminal 4 toilets. That’s pronounced in the proper French to sound less declasse. A gurl’s gotta survive.

    • flyonthewall

      Jenny, do you live at LAX like Tom Hanks in that movie The Terminal? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciByvddyHBs

      • Ben Franklin

        Jenny doesn’t live at LAX, she only goes there to look for people who are suppressive full time

        • flyonthewall

          Idk, credible sources tell me she lives in the terminal 4 women’s restroom and does bad things for cash

          • Ben Franklin

            I always wondered what she was carrying in the LAX video, is it napkin?

            • flyonthewall

              Poor Jenny, that napkin may wipe off the cum and tears but only Jesus can wipe the stains off her soul

  • chukicita

    So Bellair finally opened its Ideal Org today. Just a stone’s throw from Clearwater, I’d expect to see more support than 66 out of 881 invites RSVPing. And no wog coverage on something this big?

    • Robert Eckert

      This isn’t an Ideal Org, this is an Ideal Mission. The concept that a “mission” could be “ideal” is a new one. Most mission holders were liquidated ages ago.

      • RMycroft

        And so were the missions!

        • Baby

          and so are the Orgs..

      • noseinabk

        If you go to Google maps and search scientology mission, zoom out from any state, you will see all the little missions that may not be listed. Most are chiropractors or dentist. A sad few are homes with dismal signs out front.

      • chukicita

        Thanks – can you help me understand the difference between an org and a mission? Is an org owned by the chuch, providing all services except those that happen only on the boat, and a mission sort of a franchise that offers introductory services? I’ve never been really clear on that (pun intentional).

        Edit: I’ve always thought of a ‘mission’ in general as a sort of religious outpost in an underserved region. So it’s hard to think of a mission of any kind in tony Belleair, which is also just a golf cart ride away from downtown Clearwater.

        • Robert Eckert

          I think you have the distinction more or less right. Exes could clarify.

          When I think of a “mission” I think more like The First Methodist Church of Kung Du in the opening scenes of “The African Queen”

  • Eivol Ekdal

    Good night everybody peeps.

    • noseinabk

      Gnight Eivol.

  • Unex Skcus

    For those few out there in Indie land who still maintain that Miscavige is the cause of Co$’s woes, they should watch Gerry’s video, on Hubbard’s blubbering:
    … he has to do all the work …
    … everyone was always failing him …
    … he was so much greater than anyone else …
    It’s just a case of one sociopath following in the footsteps of another.

            • Opal Lumen

              SPW, if you don’t mind, may I throw a really off-the-wall theory out there for your consideration?

            • Um yea sure go for it.

            • Opal Lumen

              Okay, want to make sure you’re ready because this may blow your mind …

            • yep yep yep

            • Opal Lumen

              Here goes: Do you think there’s a possibility that Longtime Lurker was actually Jimmy3?

              It might explain why they both disappeared at the same time.

            • I and we ALL know for a fact Jimmy3 had many socks but I don’t believe LL was one of them. But that’s an EXTREMELY good theory and no one has ever thought of that. And it wouldn’t be the first time that J3 argued with himself. Longtime Lurker played a major role in posting the Red X reminders. The only thing that does not make sense is why J3 would all of a sudden help post REd X reminders. Any other theories? hmmmm thats a good one OL, and I am Blind blown. I never thought about that …seriously.

            • Opal Lumen

              Thank you for your kind response, and also thank you for considering my theory and not just discounting it outright. The reason it occurred to me is that in addition to being smart and humorous, Jimmy3 is also very, very creative. If indeed he was posing as Longtime Lurker, he created a persona that not only had a completely different personality than Jimmy3, he lived in a completely different country! It would take real thespian to pull that off!

              Now that I’ve presented this bizarre theory, it leaves things open for Longtime Lurker, if indeed he is not one of J3’s socks, to return to the Bunker and continue making his very welcome comments.

            • That’s right!!! LTL came in extremely easily and was well loved outright b/c of his post just like J3. But I can’t find the why? Unless he is just bored. Still doesn’t answer why he would want to post the Redx reminders unless he ALWAYS wanted to be part of the Red x Brigade. lolol. I’m still kinda mind blown about it.

            • Opal Lumen

              If LTL was a J3 sock, maybe he (J3) wanted to create a character that would be so well-loved, so warmly received and cared about, that when he (J3) came in as an antagonistic, argumentative sock, it would cause an even greater stir and uproar with the other commenters? I know that’s getting ahead of things but these are the theories rolling around in my diseased brain …
              (edited for clarity)

            • There’s still a why missing though. LTL knows ALOT about Australia, and I know nothing about J3 so another poster would have to answer that. If LTL is lurking right now, I certainly hope he is not offended. Sorry LTL!

              Updated: The night J3 left he ended up answering me as if he was talking on another board which is why I was not sad about what happened. You think maybe he can’t keep track of all his socks?? Not very difficult to make them.

            • Opal Lumen

              My sense is that J3 had even more socks going than any of us even imagined (which is another reason I think he is so creative). So many, in fact, that he couldn’t keep them all straight and could not even keep track of his commenting threads. (Anyone remember that night when he (J3) responded to himself (J3) by jumping all over himself as though he’d insulted himself? Then he gave some kind of lame excuse as to why it happened.) Add that to the fact that he self-admittedly was having a drinking problem, and, well … it explains a lot.

              As far as seeming to know a lot about Australia, well, the internet.

              All that aside, if LTL is out there and wants to defend his unique identity, I issue this challenge: Come forward, Sir! Everyone loves you and misses you, and wants to be able to communicate with you once again!

            • Yes! I remember that night like it was yesterday, and it was also the same day he quickly announced his lent sabbatical right after that. You think he was trying to start a fight with the Long time Lurker sock and made a mistake? Cuz on that same thread LTL answered really quickly to J3. I remember. It was weird. You think J3 was trying to antagonize LTL sock for awhile now? But Why? Is he some creative internet mad man.

            • Opal Lumen

              OMG, I had forgotten about that part! In a way, that kind of explains the whole “leaving for lent” deal. He realized he’d screwed the pooch!! And LTL’s quickly answering J3 in order to kind of smooth things over? I think that brings us full circle back around to my initial, off-the-wall theory: LTL was another of J3’s many, many socks. Dang, that guy’s sock drawer must be overflowing!! Bet he thought we’d never figure it out … (if indeed it is true).

              I’d like to get a couple of the veteran Bunkerites weighing in on this, if I’m not out of line. Captain Howdy? Are you in the hizzie? What about you, Robert Eckert? OneSub? Are you around? Come out, come out, wherever you are, and please add your comments here.

            • Ironically, I ended up on that thread today earlier to post message for LTL to come back lmao. Didn’t realize where I was until I looked at the comments. I knew I ended up there for some reason. That’s why it’s fresh in my brain. Weird. There are many other red flag about Jimmy3 that I had for awhile. He leaves a long trail. Couldn’t help but notice them. Hmm. Everyone thought he was upset that night I argued with him, but anyone can look back and look at his responses and SEE that he accidently responded to my comment from another board. He was NOT upset. lolol. What do you think Bunkers?

            • If we are wrong LTL WE are sorry. lolol. Come back we miss you!!

            • Opal Lumen

              Yes, yes, yes! Will the real Longtime Lurker come forward and sign in please?

            • Yes Wogsy is fine. In fact I went from Super Power Wog to Super Power Wogsy b/c of Beauty’s recommendation. : )

              Hmmmm. I was going to agree with you but then I stopped myself. LTL had already been approached by Pierrot about the Red X reminders a day earlier. I know this as I was lurking before I jumped in again, we posted the Redx reminder at the same time by accident. However, A red flag went up when LTL asked me if I had ever been the Golden Gate Bridge (on that same evening that J3 disappeared) B/c I was born in S.F, and I thought it was an ODD question, and I had never really established rapport with LTL, and he would never know that. Still. I thought it was an odd question. I did invite LTL over to the WWP private threadline but I don’t think there’s any info that he could possible get. Again the same day he was invited he left as well.

              Going back to what you said about J3 being creative, LTL was a writer, and if anyone wanted to invent different identities, it would be a writer, and I would know that b/c I write stories for fun. I also research locations to build my characters if I’m not studying. So it would be absolutely NATURAL that J3/LTL could invent personalities, and do enough research to do so. Only a writer could do that.Doesn’t explain why he or they disappeared. Unless they made a mistake. What do you think?

              P.S. I still love ya LTL. Please don’t be mad at me. If anything you should be inspired.

            • Opal Lumen

              Ha ha! Funny about your name change being suggested by Beauty — I changed my avi to a wombat because of LTL posting photos of wombats and talking about how great they are! It got me to research wombats and I fell in love with them! Because of LTL!

              I agree with your statement above: LTL/J3 should feel inspired and, yes, even a little flattered that he has created such a commotion and so much discussion here! I think most people here would agree that both J3 and LTL were well-loved Bunkerites. Too bad he behaved in such a douchy manner.

            • lol! Male Muses! Or are they male. It’s an UNSOLVED mystery. Come back LTL! Sorry I never really knew J3. : )

            • Jo

              I always found Jimmy to be kind and humorous. I miss his posts here.

            • Opal Lumen

              Jo, I completely agree. Jimmy3 was funny and kind (as was LTL). J3’s alter-egos, though … not so much.
              (edited for clarity)

            • Ok. I’m excited where is MK?

            • Missionary Kid

              I was writing a long post.

            • I miss reading his comments too. He was funny as hell.

            • Opal Lumen

              Where are you, MK? We need you to comment …

              Okay, Wogsy, hold on to your ponytail, because that’s not the end of the whole conundrum. Are you ready for Part II?

            • YES!!!!!!!. I have more stuff to add but I didn’t want to say. I will let you go first. I was here a short time last year and mentioned my place of origin. I had many convos with J3 last year. Maybe he remembered? And thats why LTL brought it up.

            • sorry about the over excitement.lolol

            • Opal Lumen

              No, don’t apologize! This is kind of exciting.

              Okay, my very first post last night was asking if anyone else had noticed that the option for adding “Guest Upvote” had been discontinued. A few people responded. I went on to add that I had gone back through the comments on the last few Bunker posts and noticed that someone (or several someones, perhaps?) was abusing the “Guest Upvote” privilege. My post from earlier is here:
              http://tonyortega.org/2015/02/28/leak-scientology-celebrities-are-stepping-up-their-involvement-behind-the-scenes/#comment-1881314827

              Anyhow, my reasoning behind that is that when you go to “Best” for the last few days and look at the first comment for each day, there are an inordinate amount of “Guest Upvotes” for each post. Now, I know that in itself does not prove anything, but then there was this, from 2/25/15 (refresh, and hold on to your ponytail):

              Check out the number of upvotes on your post above. They are all “Guest Upvotes.” Now, I know this doesn’t prove anything one way or another, but the fact that these things have happened and the “Guest Upvote” option was discontinued? Seems pretty bizarre, don’t you think?

            • I had that too on one of my posts. I’m still confused.

              ETA: But I remember your posting about that from earlier.

            • Opal Lumen

              Shoot, I had a screen grab (I thought) but it’s my first time doing one so of course I messed up. Give me a minute and I’ll try again.

            • ok look at picture I posted in response to mk comment. let me know what you think.

            • Opal Lumen

              I looked at the picture you posted and see it’s from a year ago, but can’t really tell what it says. I’m trying to find your post from 2/25 with all the upvotes but am not having much luck. Could you please go into your comments and see if you can find it? Your comment is, “He’s due for a real life Jerry Maguire break down” in response to a DTL comment. Let me know what you find.

            • Yes I remember that comment. It had 101 guest upvotes. I thought I was tweaking and imagining things. What of it though? Im still confused.

            • Opal Lumen

              Okay, Wogsy, don’t know if you’re still hanging in there with me. My whole point about the “Guest Upvotes” is that I think the recent abuses (on both the first posts under “Best” and the 110 upvotes on your 2/15 post) are the reason the “Guest Upvote” option was discontinued!

              Also, why 110 guest upvotes on your random post and no other? Seems pretty frickin’ strange, if you ask me.

            • Missionary Kid

              If you are trying to figure out Disqus, good luck. It changes all the time.

            • Good questions. AND very strange. I don’t know. What do you think? N what does it have to do with J3/LTL?

            • Opal Lumen

              Oh! I forgot to tell you (and other Bunkerites can back me up on this): Jimmy3 had a real thing about Guest Votes! He even created a sock once named “1 Guest Vote”!!

              It’s just all too coincidental.

            • Lolol I don’t think J3 would fixate on a SPW ago unless he was upset that I lashed out on him Sunday. I did apologize on one of his other “open” disqus accounts about what happened. So we should be good. ; ) still doesn’t explain guest vote.

            • n LTL is still MIA.

            • Opal Lumen

              Okay. Let’s just consider it another great ***Bunker Mystery***

            • Yep. : ) It’s a good one though. Now …..your comments before someone thinks we are crazy lolol.

            • I’m wide awake. Going back to this theory. The guest upvotes are still inactive. I doubt someone like J3 who could barely keep with his overflowing sock drawer has that much power. Unless he’s a pissed off computer hacker. Even then there were many other people that night the argument ensued that he could have upvoted. That was just randomness I think. J3 has been commenting here for years. Either way, I agree with you it’s a “””Bunker Mystery”””” indeed.

            • Missionary Kid

            • Opal Lumen

              Thanks for putting up with my craziness, Wogsy — and Good Night. :o)

            • where did your post go?

            • Opal Lumen

              It’s probably at the very bottom of our whole string.

            • Sorry just re-read. Why would it be mine?

            • Missionary Kid

              I’m slow on the uptake, so I wouldn’t know any of J3’s socks. I guess I spent most of my reading looking at content or for J & D or well written prose for my lists. If you have noticed, I often take stuff at face value instead of considering the source. J3 got me a couple of times, but also, I realize that there’s a lot of people who aren’t familiar with the character of a poster, so I sometimes reply straight for their benefit.

              I’ve been here about 2 years. Even Hole and Baby have taken breaks for a while. Real life intrudes or sometimes topics affect all of us so that we get burned out. Sometimes, another Bunkaroo can get on our nerves. Sometimes people have closed out their account because they were upset, and have had to come back with a different avatar.

              I do miss some of the people who’ve disappeared a lot, and I’m glad to see them when they return. Sometimes, it’s a matter of another forum having more interest for people. There are people here who have been posting and reading about $cientology way before Tony had the Village Voice forum that drop in and out depending on the topic.

              Because of the nature of the Bunker, I look at it as sort of a 24 hour diner where anyone can show up. When someone is here, they’re here, when they’re not, they’re not. Since most of us have anonymous avatars, we don’t really know what others are doing.

            • Opal Lumen

              Thank you for your thoughtful reply, MK.

            • Missionary Kid

              I get another computer, my typing on my tablet is slow.

            • Missionary Kid

              I meant “Until I get…”

            • MK can you please translate what this pic means to you. Anybody else can too. This is reply I left in response to a posters commments. The other posters comment has been removed.

            • Missionary Kid

              I can’t really tell. Sometimes people get embarrassed over something they’ve posted or they’ve had second thoughts, so they remove their comments.

            • ok thank you for your comment ML.

            • Opal Lumen

              Wogsy (may I call you Wogsy?), I thought more about what you posted earlier, about why LTL took to posting the Red-X reminders. (Again, if he really was a J3 sock.) I don’t think J3 (as LTL) ever expected to form such a quick, good friendship with YOU. My sense is that it took him completely by surprise, both that he had fooled you so completely, and that you and he hit it off so well. (Again, this is with the caveat that LTL is, indeed, a J3 sock.) I think he did the Red-X reminders to please you.

              What’s your take on that?

      • MaxSpaceman

        Been gone long enough bro- there’s stuff to do and need you.

      More practical is to go back to Sunday’s thread or before and reply to one of his old comments. If he still uses that Disqus account at all, that message will show up in his Notifications.

        Why don’t all of us who miss him do that too! Bunker Bullies activate! 🙂

        I have done this, but no response 🙁

  • PickAnotherID

    Just voted and it’s “Critters” 8,553 and “$cilon Skool” 5,357 so the “Critters” have a 3,196 vote lead.
    Yeah!!

    • Ben Franklin

      They forgot to call in the OTs. That’s what is happening. Those Operating Thetans are something else, they can make votes appear and disappear out of thin air just like facts.

  • Opal Lumen

    OT: Don’t know if this has already been addressed, but am just wondering — Has anyone else noticed the “Guest Votes” have disappeared?

    • noseinabk

      I signed out and couldn’t upvote. Disqus is great for real time commenting. If they would lay off the lame updates it would be even better. I still miss the down votes.

    • Robert Eckert

      Yes. Disqus made this change just recently.

      • Opal Lumen

        Yes, it seems to have changed about an hour or so after the first comment this morning.

    • Kestrel

      Yes. I created an account to upvote.

      • Opal Lumen

        That’s great — Glad you’re here, Kestrel. Were you previously upvoting as “Guest”?

        • Kestrel

          Yes, I was.

      • Ella Raitch

        Welcome! Now you can comment as well. We won’t bite (much ;D)

    • noseinabk

      Maybe the updates are why my view of upvotes are all wonky. I could never see who upvotes others (only the number) and now I can’t even see when I have upvoted someone. In some cases, I know I upvoted and go back and see it didn’t show.This only happens on my nook tablet.

      • Opal Lumen

        Always thought of the “Guest” upvotes as representing the shy ones who wanted to upvote but hadn’t yet committed to creating an avi. This change makes it so there won’t be any more anonymous upvotes.

        • noseinabk

          I sometimes prefer to upvote at other sites without logging in. Lurkers can make a disqus account with any name and set it to private. Disqus is very short sighted in making this change though.

          • Opal Lumen

            Spent a little time looking at the last few days’ posts and it appears someone was abusing the “Guest Upvote” privilege.

            • noseinabk

              I checked a few other sites and none will let me upvote as guest. Oh well. We will still have just as many readers and fewer upvotes.

    • Lurkness

      Which sucks as I am more often guest than lurkness as Disgust frequently caused my computer to crash. Fortunately hasn’t been doing it lately, maybe some updates corrected the problems. Will see.

    • aquaclara

      Yes. It’s annoying. From my tablet, I have to re-sign in after every refresh, or coming back from following a link, or even just stopping in here. It was easy to read and up vote if I wasn’t signed in. Now, not so much.

      • Opal Lumen

        Have you tried the “Open in New Tab” trick? I learned it from Robert and it’s helped so much! ***Thanks, Robert!!!***

        • MaxSpaceman

          Any time anyone posts a link on the Bunker, the only best choice is to “Open in New Tab”. Your Bunker screen remains on the comment with the link. Sometimes I have 5 tabs open, all suggested links, and I’m still on the spot I want to be on the Bunker.

          • Opal Lumen

            Yes, it always works great for me, too.

            Silly, but whenever I see your avi name, I always hear it in my head like the name of the doctor on 30 Rock: Dr. Spaceman, pronounced “spe-che-man.” Weird, I know!

      • noseinabk

        Sooooooo frustrating to have the bunker reload after I go to another page. I open all the links in new tabs as I pass by comments and read them after I catch up.
        Edit: when after. :-/

        Mine’s half greyhound. Does that mean I’m in for only 12 and a half reasons? I promise you he is very cute and holds up his end of the rabbit-chasing tradition.

        • Todd Tomorrow

          What do you have?

          • aquaclara

            I have a half greyhound, half Labrador retriever rescue. He runs like the wind, and loves to swim. He had a rough start-his litter was thrown out, taken from their mom as wee pups, then being saved by a lab rescue group and a wonderful foster family. He has come far, and is a happy, fun dog. We are so lucky to have him.

            Sharing your article with friends….it’s good. There is a terrific greyhound rescue near me, too.

            • Todd Tomorrow

              I went to pick up Greyhounds at a breeders(for rescue) and they were killing a litter of puppies of 1/2 Greyhound,1/2 German Shepareds and I grabbed one. He grew up to be very timid but learned to love his life. Thought he was a Greyhound since he lived with five others. Fuzz Ball, was his name, which morphed into,”Foss.”

      • Opal Lumen

        Awww, so sweet! Thank you for posting this, Todd. Learned so many Greyhound facts!

        As a wise Baby once said, “Gimme dat doggie!”

        • beauty for ashes

          • Opal Lumen

            I do have a question, Todd. You earlier mentioned there are usually a few extra pooches at your house. If someone in another state wished to adopt one of your fur babies (not me, unfortunately — my landlord says no — wish I could, though!), would you be able to travel to deliver one of your greyhounds?

            • Todd Tomorrow

              I can make that happen but the person must be interviewed including a house visit. But they are great for so many reasons. Even if something would happen to you they are always taken care of if something would happen to you.

            • Opal Lumen

              Thank you for your response, Todd. It’s great that you are so careful to find your babies a good home. I would love to have a dog and really miss being a dog mom, but unfortunately my landlord won’t allow it. Someday, hopefully…

  • Hingle McCringleberry

    Proud of everyone here at the Bunker and anywhere else this movement was advertised. A number of otherwise doomed animals are going to survive and live another day to love and be loved by their human companions because of the contrasting victimizing and dehumanizing programs brought about by Hubbard and brought to new lows by Miscavige. The healing power of companionship has been beautifully illustrated here and in many other places and a small seed of hope is going to grow in the ashes that the intentions of these evil men have left behind. . . Great job, Bunkeroos!

    • romanesco

      Not so fast, unfortunately. While it’s great to see the Bunker outvote the clams, this is only the first heat. Somebody looked at the contest rules and found that the top 3 along with some others picked by a panel will go into a second round of voting in March.

      • noseinabk

        This time we will be there at the start of voting. Can’t wait.

        • Missionary Kid

          Since I’m a former Marine, I was interested in A Few Good Men. It was on, IIRC, HBO, and the last few minutes were showing before the start of the next.

          When the actor playing a Marine saluted uncovered (without a hat on) at the end, I didn’t bother watching the rest of the movie. The tradition in the sea services in the USA is that a salute is never rendered without a hat or cap on. It’s one of the first things you learn in boot camp or officer training. It becomes a part of one’s DNA.

          Yes, I know that it was done for dramatic reasons, but it rang so false to me, I couldn’t suspend my reality to watch the rest of the movie.

          • Opal Lumen

            Yay, MK! That is so perfect! I can never suspend my belief where TC is concerned, either, because I know what a Monkey Butler he is in real life!

            If I may, could I ask you to please scroll down and weigh in on the comment thread between me and Super Power Wogsy below? We need the opinion of a veteran Bunkerite.

            • Missionary Kid

              OK.

              Thank you.

      Saw it before and admired Jack Nicholson’s performance, but I refuse to bump up Cruise’s ratings.

      • Opal Lumen

        Me, either, Romnesco. I boycott the Top Goon.

    • beauty for ashes

      Sorry guys, looks like movies are different if you don’t watch them for twenty years. It’s so campy!

    • Baby

      Boycott all Scn. celebrities movies.. I think the last movie I saw with TC in it was Jerry Mcquirer..

      OK..I will admit I love Giovanni Ribisi.. I feel like a whore though prostituting myself out when I do watch him..( In my mind I justify it by thinking he’s a born in and knows no better..)

      This from a while back ~ TenAug to THDNE ~ “You want the truth?”

      Miscavige: You want answers?

      Jeffries: I think I’m entitled.

      Miscavige: YOU WANT ANSWERS?

      Jeffries: I WANT THE TRUTH.

      Miscavige: YOU CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH. Son we live in a universe that has
      SP’s and those SP’s have to be fought by men in fake navy uniforms. Who’s gonna
      do it? You? You Marty Rathbun? I have a greater responsibility than you can
      possibly fathom. You weep for Monique and you curse RTC. You have that luxury,
      you have the luxury of not knowing what I know… that Monique’s harassment,
      while tragic, probably saved thetans and my existence, while grotesque and
      incomprehensible to you, saves thetans. You don’t want the truth because deep
      down in places you don’t talk about at parties you want me fighting SP’s… you
      need me fighting SP’s. We use words like Cock, Suck and Boulevard. We use these
      words as the back bone of an eternity spent fighting something. You use them as
      a punch line. I have neither the time or the inclination to explain myself to a
      man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very sky I sell and then questions
      the manner in which I sell it. I would rather you just said thank you and went
      on your way. Otherwise I suggest you sign a billion year contract and do the
      RPF. Either way I don’t give a damn what you think you are entitled too.

      Jeffries: Did you send the dildo?

      Miscavige: I did the job…

      Jeffries: DID YOU SEND THE DILDO?

      Miscavige: YOU’RE GOD DAMN RIGHT I DID!

      Hi aegerprimo,
      Good to see you. Thanks for the hard work!

  • Todd Tomorrow

    Sorry. we’ve been baby sitting. Just learned we Won!!! Thanks everybody who worked so hard. I’m so proud of all of us,SPs! Horray for the animals.

    • EnthralledObserver

      Hey, I’m sure someone else has grilled you about this at some point earlier.. but how’s the foot? Diagnosis?

      • Opal Lumen

        Hi, EO – Don’t mean to butt in, but Todd earlier mentioned his ankle was sprained but not broken.

        I changed my avi to a baby wombat since our conversation about Australia a few weeks ago. So sorry to hear your house was damaged by the cyclone, but very glad you and your family are fine.

        • EnthralledObserver

          Oh, that’s good news – thanks. I figured Todd must have informed us already… but I am too lazy to dig through the comments.
          Thanks for your thoughts regarding the cyclone – We’ll be fine… we are insured. But I found out a single Mum up the top of our street who lost her roof isn’t. That would be really sucky. I feel so bad for her (I don’t know her personally – some of the other neighbours passed the news along) but hopefully the community can rally together to help her, and others in her situation, out. The local builders are going to do really well to fix the many damages done by the disaster, so I foresee several banding together with other donators to help the less fortunate.

          • Opal Lumen

            That’s so wonderful. It’s situations like these where one really learns the meaning of “community.”

          • Todd Tomorrow

            I never pray but I came in late and you left so abruptly I was really worried, So glad you’re alive!

            • EnthralledObserver

              Thanks, Todd. It’s times like this I wish we could all meet up somewhere in person for a hug and well wishes. My hubby can’t seem to appreciate ‘internet’ friends are like real life ones, but I see no difference – I think pretty much everyone here is fantastic in their own way and I see you all as my friends! 🙂

            • Baby

              My buddy EO.. xo ( I feel the same way)

            • Todd Tomorrow

              I bet he’s a nice bloke though. I can’t wait until the cult has sunk and we’ll have no choice but to meet up. My girlfriend tolerates my blogging but wonders why I don’t read so much as i once did.

            • EnthralledObserver

              lol – I have been married to him a while, so I’ve discovered he can be as much a nice bloke as much as he can be a prick… meh, but I have five kids with him and I need his money, soooo…
              Nah, he’s ok, I suppose… 😉
              Except he hates my computer and me talking about what $cientology is up to… but I guess if he liked those things WE wouldn’t be friends, now, would we!? 😀

              I prayed for you Todd.. Just to have all bases covered..

      • Todd Tomorrow

        It’s badly sprained although when the ortho Dr.first saw it he said it was broken. They gave me some pain killers and I go to a specialist on Mon. Thx, the painkillers are making me so fucked up. But this injury owes me a buzz. Almost did some stitches on my forehead but they butterflied it together.

        • EnthralledObserver

          Oooh… you sound quite banged up, but it seems as though it could have been a lot worse and I’m glad you’ll be ok. I hope the specialist sorts you out on Monday… until then, get into them drugs, boy! 😉

          Y’know, if you can manage to hobble down to the nearest Ideal Org, they could take care of that in a jiffy with an infallible Touch Assist.

          Or you could down some liquid hydrocodone and sleep it off.

          • Todd Tomorrow

            They gave me powerful stuff I asked for, Percodane. I’m not allowed in the org here. Plus I got a touch asst. in college and i felt Manhandled.

            • Sandy

              When I broke my arm/shoulder last summer, they gave me Oxycodone. That stuff sucks (for me at least). Didn’t touch the pain, but made me sleep constantly. Hated it and quit it very soon.

          • Todd Tomorrow

            Hyrocodone is for squares I need ,Oxycodone. Prius did a job knocking me out of the bike lane. Luckily they ran off as I sue and bruise easily. I tell yah DDD, my blue blood was about ready to boil.

      not over yet, that’s just round one. Round two is a run off b/w humane society and washbrain

      • romanesco

        And Meals on Wheels, also a worthy cause that came by their place in the top 3 on their own.

  • NoShit Sherlock

    Hey thanks Pomerantz, I just voted for the Humane Society of Pinnellas. Looks like they won. 🙂 Too bad, so sad Washburn.

    • Zana

      YAYYYYY!!! That’s what I wanted to know. That’s why I signed on tonight. So glad to hear that good news!!!

      • romanesco

        It ain’t over ’til it’s over. Another round of voting comes up next month.

        At least we showed the clamsters we can outvote them in the 11th hour, though.

        • Zana

          Yes. And we will clobber them the next round. We can send it out to all our friends.

    • Douglas D. Douglas

      DITTO!

  • Douglas D. Douglas

    I am so confused.

    I have been given to understand that there are literally MILLIONS of Scientologists, and no more than seventy (or was that seventeen?) posters and their socks here. But the vote on the Milner Jumpstart has turned decisively toward our favored charity.

    Is it possible that we are the ones who have actual power over MEST? How else to explain the ability to outvote millions and millions of Scientologists???

    • Zana

      Yes!!!! Those are the recent statistics!!!! The Wild Anarchists on the Fringe of the Internet are outnumbering poor crazies still in. 🙂 Right on, Bunkeroos!!!

      • Allie

        Sid, can I ride on the cruise ship? I’d love to scuttle her.

        • Sid

          Todd, you can have your own Tom Cruise Ship. Watch from ashore though because it’s made to go down on its own.

          • Todd Tomorrow

            Ouch, Sounds painful!

    • noseinabk

      We totally cheated. We we went clear and up the bridge with Claire and Jeff and never payed a dime. We practiced our super duper powers from the first moment Tony posted about the oiliness table. They never had a chance.

    • Todd Tomorrow

      I’ve always thought it is you we should all be listening to! Ms. Kulman came to me in a dream and told me you are the one! We have powers over their Mesty minds.

    • Liam

      Yes, DDD, the thought occurred to me to.

    • Hingle McCringleberry

      We uncovered the raw power of Dan Sherman Mullet Math. We abused the powerz and we’ll all die of ampneumoninia this week. Or will we? BWWWAHHAHHAAAAHAAAA!!! We Are The Legions of Xenu!!

      (Be advised that there is supposedly a second round of voting for the top several vote getters beginning on 16March. We’ll be in from day one on that round, so lets put in a good show.)

    A little late night Saturday fun – from refinery29 dot com

    Playback.fm, the online radio web app, has a nifty new song generator on its site. All you do is enter your DOB, click the “Find #1 Song” button, and voilà — you get the hit song from the day you were born, and in some cases, even the music video.

    The site also tells you how many minutes ago you were born, which is a really weird piece of trivia, if you ask us. But, that’s followed by something much more useful: a button that lets you listen to all the Top 40 hits from the year you were born. And, we love how inclusive this game is… unless you came outta the womb before 1900, because that’s as far as the birth years go.

    […]You could find out the #1 song on the day you got your first car, the day you graduated, the day you made varsity, the day you found out that Biggie Smalls died… the possibilities are endless.

    Because I may just inform everyone to watch ” Going Clear on HBO… Interesting documentary.. Sunday March 29th at 8.

    • Vaquera

      Hmm, Going Clear on HBO on Sunday, March 29th at 8:00? Ok!!!

      • Baby

        Hahha Texas you are cracking me up.. Tony did a big post on the date being changed because of it’s popularity to PRIME TIME.. woo hoo

        • Vaquera

          There was a running joke with Lucille Austero a couple of days ago where we were repeating the day and time over and over as if it was new information..

          On another note, one of the stranger dates of my life just ended. He fell asleep, sitting straight up on my sofa with his hands folded in his lap, for over an hour. I cleaned the kitchen, surfed the net, changed tv channels and nary a pinky twitched. Guess my powers of entertainment are less than previously anticipated!!

          • Baby

            I’m sorry about missing your running joke with Lucy.. I guess you had to be there..hahahha

            Wow you really know how to Spice things up on your dates.. You still got it Texas.. I’m sure you are drinking your vino..

            • Vaquera

              No worries on the running joke.
              Yes, he’s out the door and I’m finishing up a glass of vino while making late night bacon and scrambled eggs and bacon. And did I mention the third strip of bacon?

            • Baby

              ooooooooH bacon, bacon, bacon.. I love bacon..

              So are you going to see him again?

            • Vaquera

              Sure. He’s pretty entertaining, but i see nothing beyond a hardy friendship. That said, hardy friendships are good, too.

            • Baby

              Wink Wink

            • Opal Lumen

              Ha ha, Baby, here we go again, both of us, stepping right off the bus into Smutville!!!

              I wanted to say to Vaquera: “And hardy friendships with benefits are really good!”

              Didn’t say it, though, because I did not want the Bunker to get too x-rated …

            • Baby

              Girl it passed X rated a long, long long time ago..Especially at this hr. We let loose..

            • Opal Lumen

              Hahahaha!! Too bad Vaquera went to bed and missed it! Oh well …

            • Baby

              I know.. That girl is full of piss and vinegar Opal.

            • I Hear you!!!!! lolol

            • Opal Lumen

              Yay! I feel right at home, then …

            • beauty for ashes

              All is clear on the calendar at Baby’s house now? I’m almost afraid to ask.

            • Baby

              OMG Yes.. 3 guests left Friday at around 11 am ( but who’s counting..ha) So All Is Clear right now.. ( Looks around nervously) .. but more are on their way.. but I am enjoying the solitude now!

          • Opal Lumen

            My gosh, Vaquera, was this your first date with this fella? What did he say when he finally woke up? (If you don’t mind my asking…)

            • Vaquera

              Second date, but I’ve known him for a few years.

              He lifted his head, scratched it a bit with both hands, looked around to assess where he was and when he caught my eye, well, I burst out laughing. What the hell else was I going to do? He was a sport and laughed as well.

            • Opal Lumen

              Sounds to me like you were the good sport! Nice that you already have a friendship going with him, though. Diffuses any potential embarrassment and clears the way for the next date — if you decide to give him another chance! I’m sure his impromptu nap in no way reflects on your ability to be entertaining, though. Sounds like the guy was just sleepy!

            • Vaquera

              He blamed it on his age which was a viable excuse in his case. Ack!!!
              Anyhoo, I flirted with the idea of talking Scientology with him, but by the time he woke form his nap it was my bedtime. I decided to casually toss out the $ci card another evening.

            • Opal Lumen

              He sounds sweet — he may be really receptive to the topic, you never know. You should ask him to take a nice long nap before he comes over next time, though!

            • Vaquera

              A winning idea!

            • Missionary Kid

              I wake up at 4:00 am PST (Pacific Standard Time) to catch the Bunker post. If I don’t nap, I crash out about 10:00 pm.

              On the subject of time and sleep, daylight savings time starts next Sunday here in the USA. We lose an hour of sleep.

            • seriouslyWTF

              Bummer for you.. I look forward to it because I get the bunker an hour earler.

            • Missionary Kid

              It’s OK, my bladder wakes me up.

            • Vaquera

              But I assume you wouldn’t fall asleep in the middle of a date! 🙂

            • Missionary Kid

              Not with an intelligent woman. 😀

          • beauty for ashes

            OMG How funny? I love funny date stories.

            • Vaquera

              Tee hee. We planned to watch a movie at my house because the weather was uncooperative. When I suggested we get Thai food from the place next door, he replied that he’d never had it before. When we settled in to watch our choice, it was on Netflix and he’d never heard of streaming something to a television. That’s a lot of firsts for a guy north of 60. No wonder he needed a nap!! 🙂

            • beauty for ashes

              HAhh! I just laughed so hard I coughed! I’m glad you took it well. I might have been tempted to shoot rubber bands at him or turn off all the lights! Its good to have practice dates when you’re getting back in the swing of things.

            • Vaquera

              Yep. This was a date with training wheels. It was a good thing. Now it’s time for me to tuck in….because, you know, I’m not the one who got a nap!!

            • beauty for ashes

              G’nite! Sleep well and dream of young men!

          • EnthralledObserver

            lol – at least you know he obviously feels comfortable with you! 😉

            • Vaquera

              That or he needs to moderate his wine consumption. 🙂

    *** RED X +–+** RED X ** +–+ RED X *** Sunday the 1st of March
    Good morning Night Owls and Early Birds,

    Due to the success that Boston had when complaining about spamming it should be emulated on Sacramento, LA, SFBAY, Cincinnati and others, there is obvious spam and abuse of the CL free advertising.
    Here is how it was done for Boston: https://whyweprotest.net/threads/taking-down-co-on-craigslist-co-ads-on-craigslist.113779/page-118#post-2514616

    All you need is a email address, in the comment list a few post’s Ids and also mention some search items.
    Ie. Cincinnati : post ids found at bottom left of the ads : 4881816315, 4881970854, 4881993717, 4902481621 and a few search strings: as “Free Artist Networking”, “Flag World Tour”,

    I have done a quick job creating a new tab with all ads sorted by Region/City & descriptions so that the spams can be more easily identified, see tab SpamTrack it should be the last to the right at the top of the spreadsheet grid.
    Have a look and complain. I believe that search phrases should be fine although they do request post Ids, so give them both.

    I will re-post this advice a couple of time today!

  • Jack99

    Is Kirstie Alley the most superficial person ever? Looking at her tweets, there are the feelgood messages of the Today is the first day of the rest of your life type – Yeah, thanks Krusty – and then the occasional Save the dolphins link, but besides that… nothing. Really, nothing. Aren’t you supposed to get wisdom as you get older?

    • Not superficial, just stupid.

      • Jack99

        Ha! Maybe why Gerry Armstrong calls it stupidology…

    • Henri Arouet

      are there enough mu-mus in East Grinstead?

  • Sydjazz

    That guy from the florida mission hmm nobody home

    • what gets me is that niblet is probably gonna notice there’s a box in that photo on the desk and flip out over that….and then the other photo, it appears the ladies are sharing eye liner as one has it on top, the other on the bottom….the one sticking her tongue out is probably in the RPF now for having such a photo taken and she also has ‘miley cyrus tongue’—coated….

      • Sydjazz

        Coated tongue…did she just do purif?

        • shouldn’t that have gotten all the toxins out of her? i mean according to what they say….

    • Bob

      Sad and vacant, if you look closely the girl looks gleefully psychotic.

  • Baby

    OMG I just looked at the girl with her tongue hanging out..and I think her Tie is too tight..

  • Scream Nevermore

    The problem with Miss Scabby Bitch’s plan is that most of those ‘celebs’ are not in fact celebs. The only real celebs they have are TC and JT, and they’re not going to attract anyone to the cult at the moment. People like Elfman et al might be reasonably well-known in the USA, but not so much anywhere else.

  • I know a bunch of those knuckleheads. I’m glad Kelly Yaegermann Pomeranz had a son but I’m sorry she couldn’t get out of the cult, and I’m glad I didn’t keep dating her. I remember telling Jenna she’d be a star before she’d done anything. Did the same thing with Denice Duff and Kirstie. Maybe I should’ve kept my mouth shut. Seems pretty telling to me that only 29 people were apparently scheduled to hear Jenna speak. They’re all paid to do this if it’s the way it’s always been. I remember when Judy Norton-Taylor (she’s just Judy Norton now I believe) basically couldn’t get a job after “The Waltons” even after doing an extremely revealing Playboy spread to show she was “all growed up.” So she made a living touring talking about Dianetics. Maybe they’re giving some of these celebs the “upper levels” (written by a guy on “uppers” drugs). However it’s playing out, it’s pretty pathetic. Not a single one of them have the social impact they once had and in Kirstie and Jenna’s case, they’re pretty jokes in the Hollywood community because of public outbursts.

    • Bob

      You speak the truth kemosabe. I too saw the rise and fall of the clam celebs. And I had similar feelings that the people you mention would do well. Living fully in Clamville is a formula for failure, as evidenced by every single talent who has joined completely in cult activities.

  • Since I’m blocked from tweeting to Krustie and Jenna, I tried this one – @marisolnichols Hey, do you ever head over to TonyOrtega.org to find out what $cientology is really all about? Ju$t curiou$ Mari$ol.

      did you do that?

      • peakofelephants

        I didn’t even know there was a way to do that. Is there really?..
        But no, I generally enjoy our conversations, so I’m not sure what I’d have to gain from that.

        • mike3

          just asking those who I usually talk to. didn’t really think it was you. 😉 just noticed you comment there a lot so I thought maybe you were a moderator? shot in the dark. yeah, I’ve been block like 5 or 6 times now on rawstory.

  • Television88

    I come back to this blog every so often to check out what is going on in Thetaville. I have discovered the reason I like this site is because I have always thought that Scientologist seem to be one of the most fun and generally smart people and wondered how they got caught in in some one like L. Ron.
    That said, I have found that when people leave they somehow maintain the coolness AND increase their smarts and ability for fun.
