Scientology continues to push for ‘Battlefield Earth’ sales, and you can get this T-shirt!


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 has released a print of the Frank Frazetta painting used on the new edition of the L. Ron Hubbard book Battlefield Earth. The price is $10,000. Scientologists are being urged to buy 20 copies of the book to push it on the New York Times bestseller list. In some missions, if you buy 25 copies, you get this t-shirt.


Scientology will hold a briefing in the Ballroom of the Fort Harrison Hotel on July 13 with guests from the City of Clearwater on making the city safer, and effects of Scientology’s social betterment programs.

Hear from local City Officials and the Office of Special Affairs on what are the exact steps to take towards making Clearwater the safest city! Get briefed on the incredible changes that our 4th Dynamic Campaigns have made in our local Community so far and what is in store for the upcoming months.


The Durban, South Africa Org has moved. When their Ideal Org effort failed in 2013, they were given this handsome building by a wealthy member. Sources say they haven’t been able to pay the utilities, and events now list this address at a much smaller location a few blocks away.


Scientologists at every level are required to write Success Stories, and the Hubbard College of Administration is no exception. Leo Anzes describes how valuable he found his two-year internship. “Type 4” exchange in Scientology’s Admin Tech is also known as “exchange in abundance,” where the recipient pays back more than was expected or required, and is the ideal type of exchange.


The Belleair Mission near Clearwater, Florida reports that they have made one Clear for every auditor since LRH’s birthday. So if they had made 50 auditors they would have made 50 Clears, but in reality they only made five. If only they had seven billion auditors, they could clear the planet. Sources estimate one auditor should be able to produce five clears per month, if there are five public preclears available.


Clearwater, Florida Chiropractor Pedro Cordovez is offering his services to help make members of Scientology “sessionable.” At the start of an auditing session, the PC is asked to squeeze the cans, and take a deep breath. If the needle appears stuck, or the TA is abnormally high, the may be said to be “out metab,” or have a problem with their metabolism. In some cases the auditor may decide to pull withholds to see what the PC has done wrong to be out metab. Cordovez’ treatment, if successful, could save the Scientologist time, money, and avoid having a session dealing with missed withholds.

If you or someone you know lives in the Clearwater area, and have trouble getting or staying sessionable, visit Dr Pedro Cordovez. He specializes in Chinese medicine and can quickly discover what physical problems may be preventing you from resting, getting adequate nutrition, or otherwise being sessionable. For a free consultation, call Dr Cordovez at 727-667-1028.


Pop singer Joy Villa held a Scientology recruiting event at the Celebrity Center in Hollywood on July 4. “Grammy-Considered” is a subjective description; to date she has not been nominated for a Grammy Award.


Narconon is expanding in Ukraine. The top photo is the first Narconon anti-drug lecture in Odessa. The photo below is the same lecture in Kiev, showing how the Scientology Tone Scale relates to drug addiction.


The Saint Hill Arts Festival is being held in August, and actress Judy Norton is one of the featured presenters. The former regular on The Waltons TV program in the 1970s and 80s will give workshops on acting for aspiring performers.


The Puebla, Mexico org encouraged Scientologists to come to the Maiden Voyage event dressed as one of the characters in L. Ron Hubbard’s works of fiction.


The Rev. Dr. Alfreddie Johnson Jr. enjoys escaping the mess he left behind in Los Angeles by riding jet ski in Florida…
