Scientology makes you a god who can heal this horse just with your finger


It’s time again for Rod Keller’s Scientology Social Media Review. He’s made a specialty of hunting down the odd and wonderful things Scientologists post to the ‘net. He’s a chronicler who piece by piece builds a highly detailed assessment of what Scientology is doing around the world, and this is what he found for us this week…

Scientology Volunteer Ministers held a training session at the Living Trail equestrian center in Volgograd, Russia this week. The center works with disabled children, using contact with horses and horse riding in physical and emotional therapy. They host children with cerebral palsy, arthritis, scoliosis, blindness, autism and other disorders and provide training in riding and caring for horses. The Scientologists trained the staff in performing Touch Assists and Nerve Assists, demonstrating these procedures on the human staff and the horses. The procedure is intended to relieve pain and to heal a wide variety of diseases and disorders. The patient is touched with a finger and asked “can you feel my finger?” If they are a human being and say “yes,” then the response is “thank you.”



This week Scientologist Kostyantyn Malomuzh provided Scientology’s “study tech” classes in Mongolia, as he has for the past several months. It is a task he feels is easier because of the lack of Psychiatrists in that country.

How can you help the entire country? Can you imagine a country where there are almost no psychiatry? A country where parents do not trust the psychologists, and the kids have parents? A country where would love to and took great interest in LRH technology. A country in which people seek knowledge and want to change your life for the better? A developing country, which has a great past and the future? This country is Mongolia!!! For the 2012-2016 years in this country has done an incredible!!! The Applied Education CIS trained about 9000 teachers (30 percent of teachers across the country) in LRH Technology and conducted lectures for more than 18,000 people!


Scientologists distributed this flier for the Citizen’s Commission on Human Rights in Wakefield, Massachusetts this week. Wakefield is a suburb of Boston, with a population of about 25,000.

The front group United for Human Rights is holding a celebration of Juneteenth, commemorating the end of slavery in the United States in 1865. The event will be held at the Fort Harrison Hotel and features a soul food buffet, awards banquet and concert. All are welcome.


The Valley org in Van Nuys, California is holding a fundraising block party today featuring celebrity speakers such as the Commanding Officer CLO WUS, the Finance Director WUS and LRH Communicator WUS. Scientology org staff and Sea Org members are frequently referred to by their “post,” or title rather than by name, and WUS stands for the Scientology “continent” of the Western United States.


Joke Reeder, Admissions Director for the Scientology-run boarding school New Horizons Academy, “The High School For Ethical Teens,” near Austin, Texas will speak at the Mace-Kingsley Family Center in Clearwater on May 28th. Joke is a former Sea Org member and served on the Apollo.


This week Telemundo Tampa aired a segment on the legalization of marijuana featuring comments from Scientologist Julieta Santagostino, president of the local Foundation for a Drug-Free World. She was against it.


Tibor Palatinus, a Scientologist and Narconon volunteer from Vancouver, British Columbia was a guest on the Canadian station Fairchild TV. The interview is in Cantonese, and discusses the dangers of W-18, a new synthetic opioid drug blamed for at least one death in Calgary.


Narconon Dmitrovgrad is a treatment facility in Ulyanovsk Oblast, Russia. The staff re-trained at the new Continental Narconon in Denmark in November. The facility received renovations to become an Ideal Narconon, and the facility reopened early this year. This week they announced that the facility will have to be moved, and they are requesting donations to fund the new location.

We need help in moving the site of our centre. From the activity of the site depends on the activities of the centre, as well as the fact that the people who needed help, it is easier to find a programme description and contacts to quickly turn to us. Perhaps you or someone from your friends and acquaintances is ready to deal with this matter. We would be grateful for any assistance in moving the site of our centre. Together we make the people and the world is happier!


The Scientology front group Foundation for a Drug-Free World held a march in Krugersdorp, in Gauteng Province, South Africa this week. Attendance was light because of the rain.


The Atlanta Ideal Org has rented a computerized billboard along Route 285, about a half a mile from the new Ideal Org building.


The ODD org in Mexico City is having an Ideal Org fundraiser with a gangster theme on May 21st. “The best event returns for gangsters for ODD. The Ideal Godfathers.”


The New York org is hosting an event to promote the upcoming opening of the Harlem Ideal Org, featuring band leader Tito Puente, Jr., the son of the legendary king of Latin music and an icon in Spanish Harlem.


Scientologists held a Way to Happiness seminar this week at Bacha Khan University, a public university in the Charsadda District, Pakistan.

HowdyCon update: Um, wow!

On Thursday, we had some great Bunker readers leap into the fray when we indicated that we’d lost the organizer of our upcoming meetup in Cleveland, HowdyCon, which takes place June 17-19.

With help from our new volunteers, we secured a great venue for our Saturday night event, which we’re going to make sure will be the centerpiece of the weekend. And so we asked for folks to send us a message to confirm that they’re coming so we could get a head count.

Well, it turns out that we not only have numerous longtime commenters who we’re looking forward to meet, but some really surprising names as well. We’re definitely going to put together a little program for that night — you’re going to want to hear from these folks.

We’ll spill the beans about our special guests at some point. But for now, we’ll just say you’re really going to want to be at our dinner Saturday night if you can make it.

If you are coming and haven’t notified us yet, please drop us a line at tonyo94 AT gmail DOT com and let us know how many will be in your party. We need that information to cater the affair.

Thank you.
