DRONE FLYOVER: Scientology’s Int Base and its hilltop camouflaged ‘Eagle’s Nest’

 
The mysterious drone pilot is back!

Last year, a person who took great pains to remain anonymous approached us with a series of amazing 4K videos that were taken from a drone over several of Scientology’s secret locations around the western United States.

Over a period of weeks we made them public, and the drone pilot indicated on his YouTube channel that the remarkable footage was free for anyone to download or use. Since then, we have seen his footage show up in television shows about the church. But it’s here at the Underground Bunker that you get to see his work first.

Last year, his remarkable fly-overs gave us never before seen angles on Scientology’s international management base near Hemet, California (“Int Base” or “Gold Base”); the super-secret CST headquarters compound near Lake Arrowhead, California where we believe Scientology leader David Miscavige has kept his wife Shelly out of sight since the summer of 2005; the ranch in Creston, California where L. Ron Hubbard spent his final years in hiding; a vault location in the Sierra foothills; another vault location with a space saucer-like building on the Northern California coast; and the infamous vault and airstrip in a remote part of New Mexico.

After that, the drone pilot said we wouldn’t be hearing from him again, and he stopped messaging us.

But now he’s back, saying he still had some unfinished business. He took his drone back to a couple of places, hoping to give us an even better view.

In particular, he wanted to give us our best view yet of the “Eagle’s Nest” observation point that overlooks Int Base. And he also took another run over the base, and got the best close-up yet of the building where David Miscavige works — known as “Building 50,” which houses the offices of the Religious Technology Center (seen in the photo above).

 

[The Eagle’s Nest above Int Base]

Once again, go full screen and soak up the incredible detail of this 4K video resolution, and ask yourselves, what is a church doing with a camouflaged observation post on the hill above their 500-acre secretive compound?

    OT: But apparently the airport in Stuttgart Germany has installed a “prayer booth” for nervous flyers, with prayers offered for many various religions. That’s all well and good, but in this article, one particular sentence jumped out at me…..

    “Even Tom Cruise is catered for, with five minutes of Scientology prayers on offer.”

    http://www.nzherald.co.nz/travel/news/article.cfm?c_id=7&objectid=11851480

    Do Scientologists actually have a particular prayer of sorts? I’ve only been here for about 5-6 months, and don’t recall seeing anything about that. Wiki states the following:

    Scientologists believe in an “Infinity” (“the All-ness of All”). They recite a formal prayer for total freedom at meetings, which include the verses “May the author of the universe enable all men to reach an understanding of their spiritual nature. May awareness and understanding of life expand, so that all may come to know the author of the universe. And may others also reach this understanding which brings Total Freedom … Freedom from war, and poverty, and want; freedom to be; freedom to do and freedom to have. Freedom to use and understand Man’s potential – a potential that is God-given and Godlike.” The prayer commences with “May God let it be so.”

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientology_beliefs_and_practices#God

    I also saw a funny comment on ESMB where someone commented “Most scientologists that I know pray regularly; they pray that they can get through whatever they’re doing without encountering a Registrar or an SO Recruiter.

    http://www.forum.exscn.net/showthread.php?11462-do-scientologist-pray

    That was funny (and probably true in many cases), but I’m curious about if Scientologists have any type of religious “prayers”.

    • Techie

      No, prayer and Scientology are acquainted only in passing. I am sure if you got Alfreddie Johnson to chaplain a memorial event he might offer a prayer, but in private there are no prayers, no submission to a higher power, nothing like that. To a Scientologist the highest power is his own damn self. In Scientologese the closest thing to a prayer is called a “postulate”. In the sense of making a statement of fact about something you cannot truly know any facts about. Like the postulate that two parallel lines do not touch. We state that it is true as a mathematical construct, but no-one has followed two parallel lines all across the entire universe to prove it.Scientologists make a postulate when the plane is going down. There is no future tense in a postulate. You are saying that something is true right now. Like “The plane is not going down” when it is. Or “I have enough money to pay for this” without looking at your checking account. Or “This woman really likes me” when she hasn’t noticed your existence yet. When a Scientologist postulates, he is saying that by his own will and internal power something is true or is happening. Just like “Abracadabra!” It goes back to the triumph of the will as in Aleister Crowley. They go to wacky seminars about “How to Make Your Postulates Stick”. They are little tin gods all on their own, no prayers, just “making it go right” by sheer internal glowing it right.

    • sizzle8

      “Prayer” in Scientology doesn’t happen. Any prayers or reference to praying is just for show in order to appear religious. In practice, no Scientology prays.

    • mandymarie20

      According to Aaron Smith-Levin’s interview with Mike RInder, Scientology just made up prayers so if asked, they had something they could show the IRS to illustrate that they were really like other religions. Sunday service talk starts at 5:56 and prayers are addressed specifically at 7:27
      https://youtu.be/KvUreu-OJtg?t=5m56s

      • Mick Roberts

        Many thanks mandymarie. I’ll watch this later (don’t remember seeing this one).

        • Princess Poopypants

          When Alfreddie Johnson first started coming in for services at CC, he was still Baptist, and wanted to do his sermons in our Garden Pavillion, which of course they allowed.
          All of CC staff had their Sunday mornings off to clean house and do laundry. Of course Alfreddie did his service Sunday mornings, so most went without the only time off they had, because we were all required to be at the Sunday service.
          He did these for many weeks in a row, and they were Baptist sermons, with a little Scientology on the side. There were prayers and “amens”, but we chuckled under our breath about the “amens”. His congregation also joined in for the Sunday service.
          Didn’t last long.

          • Draco

            Giving up my CSP time for that would seriously have pissed me off!

            • Princess Poopypants

              AMEN!!!

  • Taffy Sinclair

    Why is Antonio holding a “New Contract??” Did he and Elsa not “resign?”

    And that’s a nice shout-out the The Fresh Market!

    • Simi Valley

      It most likely means the opposite of what you thought, i.e. that they RE-signed their staff contracts to slave away for another 2.5 or 5 years.

      • Taffy Sinclair

        gotcha.

        • Simi Valley

          In clamspeak, to re-sign means to sign up again for another service (if you’re not staff) and here is used to mean that they re-up’ed their staff contracts.

    • Liberated

      I didn’t even notice the fresh market symbol…didn’t know they were in Florida.
      I love that store.

      • Taffy Sinclair

        Their headquarters are in Greensboro, NC. Former-home to a now-shuttered mission!!

    • Rasha

      Yes. they “re-signed”.

      • flyonthewall

        resigned…to their fate

  • LoriB

    OT – Has anyone seen the clip of the Katie Couric interview with Sherry Lansing that she just posted on Facebook? Talks about her work with Tom Cruise and his involvement in Scientology. I thought that I had read somewhere that he worked really hard to get Steven Spielberg into Scientology. (I’m not sure this link will work; it is a link to the FB video).
    https://www.facebook.com/katiecouric/videos/1331549220273973/

    • Link works great! Thanks for posting this.

    • GrangerFX

      She learned about it by visiting the celebrity center and she did not see anything she felt was harmful. Look if all there was about Scientology was visiting some nice happy place and using an e-meter, this site and none of us would be here. Scientology would be just a bit of harmless fun and a decent alternative religion aimed at celebrities created by a sci-fi writer in the 50’s. That is the image they want outsiders to see. If she really wanted to learn about Scientology she should have done a Google search at the very least.

      This is willful ignorance. She just wanted cover for when she got asked the inevitable questions. I think she knows all about Scientology.

      • GfldedKim

        Completely agree. Makes me angry she didn’t research the cult herself…do we know when this interview was taped??

    • Draco

      Thanks for posting this. Interesting that nobody wanted to introduce her into scn. My first thought, and I could be totally wrong, is that she might have a history of therapy, or taking what scilons call psych drugs (anti-depressants, anti-anxiety, Ritalin etc). Not to jump in with love-bombing blazing when a celeb, or anyone with a good income, walks through the doors, is a tad unusual. The way she was treated reeks of a “hands off this one” tactic. It sounds like the only reason she was allowed in was because she was so persistent that the whole thing was starting to look weird. (Almost as though they had something to hide.)
      What she says about TC never trying to get people into scn, goes against what we know about him putting up yellow tents on set. And didn’t Spielberg get pissed off with him promoting scn on set?

    • WhiteCentauress

      Laughs…then cries for the trees.
      (It does look like he has some “ecclesiastical fertilizer” on those tables, though.)

    • Mick Roberts

      Church of Scientology spokesperson Karin Pouw sent the following statement:

      Mr. Miscavige has always taken care of his father trees and continues to do so. Beyond that, as a matter of policy, neither the Church nor Mr. Miscavige comments on members of his family his beautiful trees. The Church knows nothing beyond media reports about any purported book user named “nottrue” (which should tell you this is all lies…..LIES!!!!).

      As for the purported emergency horticultural incident involving an investigator a gardener and the second-hand account of an alleged conversation containing a despicably false quote, Mr. Miscavige’s attorney, Michael Lee Hertzberg, is on record stating that Mr. Miscavige does not know the investigator gardener, has never heard of the investigator gardener, has never met the investigator gardener, has never spoken to the investigator gardener, never hired the investigator gardener and never directed any investigations gardening by him.

      So let me be clear: No such conversation with Mr. Miscavige ever took place and any claim that one did is provable bullshit…..that we could have used to fertilize the lawn.

      • Draco

      • WhiteCentauress

        Daisy, I will put that in every bubble if you want….or just one. I’ve got a few thoughts, but can’t do a whole one. Maybe we should work together.

        • daisy

          Sweet offer but my jokes are just not worth the artistry of a shoop. Wait is there money in shoops ?

          • WhiteCentauress

            You’re funnier than you think…

            • daisy

          Thank you I love this .

    • Kestrel

      Somehow I don’t think those are the actual Blue Angels pilots. The pilots have a similar look to them and most of these guys don’t have that look. Somebody with more knowledge than I should probably weigh in on this.

      • Graham

        They’re possibly ground support crew.

        • Kestrel

          Probably, but that’s not how the caption read. But then, we’ve seen security that look suspiciously like construction workers, haven’t we?

          • WhiteCentauress

            “… that’s not how the caption read.”

            Scientology lies…..AGAIN!!!!

      • Draco

        Further down someone said they were ground crew for the Angels.

        • WhiteCentauress

          Haha..great minds…👋😂👍

      • WhiteCentauress

        Downthread…someone knowledgable said they were probably maintenance/ground crew….super important to pilots. They have to be highly trained to keep the planes in top shape. I’ve been to several “Blue Angel” shows. My husband was a pilot. He took this of our grandson after a ride.

        https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/773eb2a6799b23a815e8d7d5777b9f30c40ecc4354a27a41033b426ffeaedfea.jpg

      Why would one brief pilots about a writers and illustrators conference?

      • WhiteCentauress

        Most excellent question. I bet they’re saying “Who the Hell is this guy?”

    • Draco

      Left to right:
      Why is everyone else so short?
      I need to fart.
      I need to barf.
      This should get me extra Brownie Points with shortarse.
      Smile and play nice, they said.
      Join the air force, they said.
      See the world, they said.
      WTF has this got to do with flying?

      • WhiteCentauress

        I need to laugh….😂😂

      • WhiteCentauress

        Why do Scientologists need to “brief” the military?

        Personally, the times I’ve been in hospital, I can’t help but make jokes (if I’m conscious). If anyone needs a laugh, it’s the ones doing the work, not the ones taking a nap. And I did once bump a deer on the hinder once in Ohio. That was minor, and no one got hurt… much. I did feel bad for her though.

      I’m sorry to hear that, Rasha. Bike accidents suck. I have a distant cousin who was in one, and, IIRC, he was NOT wearing a helmet. But I was a small child, so I don’t know for certain. I hope he has a speedy recovery!!

      BTW, when i was typing “Helmet”, it came up “Hemet.” Just a lil chuckle for ya! Take care of your bro, Rasha.

    What an incredibly disjointed looking mansion. It reminds me of the “Winchester House”….how the widow of the Winchester Rifle Company was told by a fortune teller to never stop adding on to the Winchester Mansion. Similar to what the “mansion” in the TV Horror Movie Rose Red looks like.

    Amazing that someone can take all that money from it’s “church members” and use it to build something for HIMSELF like this….all the comforts of “home”…..IS there an “indoor pool and Sauna as well”….maybe a hot tub too for himself and his “friends” to enjoy. I bet there is one HELL of a gourmet kitchen as well.

    Would be sooooo nice to see a dozen helicopters with para military troopers land and take over and FREE all those in “The Hole”….

      Too bad Elron never got a chance to enjoy lounging about pool-side on the deck of his faux sailing ship after his retirement as non-leader of the fake religion he founded. It would have been just soooo great if he could have seen the base in all its fortified glory and spent his remaining golden years there being waited on hand and foot by scantily clad, barely pubescent CMO girls

      Picture it: The fake commodore is smoking a Kool while sunning himself on the deck of his fake ship, built just for him on the grounds of the International headquarters of his fake religion, when… *Slam, Crash Boom* the FBI busts down the gates and carts our fake war hero off to the pokey, where his new cellie – a lifer named Zemu – has had a bone or two to pick with The BIG Thetan for a very, very long time 😉

      Instead, Operation All Clear – which was supposed to take care of all his legal difficulties so he could finally come out of hiding – was an abject failure and Elron was never again able to walk the earth a free man. It’s ironic that the architect and builder of this high-walled prison of belief ended up every bit as trapped by it as the marks he conned into believing in his completely daft and totally made up space opera history of the universe, .

      Now, decades later, lil davey also seems to be retreating into hiding from the world, just as Elron did. Perhaps if we’re very lucky, soon he’ll be holing up in a Bluebird motorhome too!

      OT, but I have to share. Have you ever had the experience of encountering something that you have neither seen nor given a single thought to in nearly 60 years?

      I just did. My grandparents had a plate like the one pictured that I ate from when I was a *very* young cowboy. It’s fascinating to me that the human mind can retain a memory that has been given no reinforcement whatsoever in many, many decades. Thanks, Sunny, for sharing this!

      The man has believed all the lies of Scientology for how many years and refuses to look at the truth – even about himself. Why wouldn’t he live in the land of trump? I used to feel bad for him but I can’t anymore – there is no excuse for any of the celebrities to keep their heads in the sand – I don’t care how much of a “nice guy” he is. IF and when he removes himself, I will certainly change my view.

  • Andrea ‘i-Betty’ Garner

    (Multiple-exclamation-point-alert.) The footage is stunning! I actually had my heart in my mouth when the drone dipped right down into the forecourt of Building 50 – I thought he was going to land! How on earth wasn’t he spotted? People seemed completely unaware even as he flew 30 or 40 yards above their heads. The drone must be much quieter than I assumed. It’s so stealthy and exciting! Now we know that there are two ashtrays either side of the front door to Building 50. I don’t know why that fascinates me so much, but it does. I suppose it feels like a peek behind the domestic curtain of Int Base. Is it a sign that they follow health and safety rules and regs not to smoke inside buildings? I need to rewind to see if I can spot the bullet-proof glass on Miscavige’s balcony.

    And the military-grade eagle’s nest! Is the CCTV camera for Miscavige to spy on the spies, to ensure they don’t train their sniper rifles on him again?

    A-MAZ-ING.

    • Vault Digger

      The drone definitely is audible, it has a distinctive sound. Even so, a famous philosophical question could be reformulated as: If a drone flies over a cult base and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

        “At Int, no one can hear you scream to drown out the sound of the drone.”

      • They do… but what if the people that it is flying over have been so isolated for so long that they are simply not aware of this kind of technology, and assume the noise is something else.

        Often, in a strange way, you have to understand what a thing is to be able to see it.

    DECLARATION OF ANDRE TABAYOYON (1994)

    6. Before I became a Scientologist, I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps. I served one tour of duty in Vietnam. I was in the infantry and assigned as a scout to secure sites, often behind enemy lines, from which Marine snipers would eliminate targets using specially constructed sniper rifles. It was also my responsibility to get the highly trained and therefore very valuable snipers back safely to allied lines. Because of the high likelihood that I would be operating for extended periods of time behind enemy lines, I received escape and evasion training both in the Philippines and in Vietnam. In addition to escape and evasion training, I also received instruction on how to resist anticipated brainwashing and coercive persuasion techniques likely to be employed if I was captured alive. Because of the covert nature of the operations to which I was assigned, I was also trained how even the most innocent utensils could be used to end my own life and thereby prevent any captors from extracting information that might compromise my mission or my country. My missions required that I kill a number of Vietnamese, including some at close range, some of whom died in my arms. These events left a lasting and negative impression on me.

    21. During my tenure with the Sea Org, I held many posts. The various posts or positions I held during my association with Scientology included:

    – Commanding Officer, Master at Arms;
    – Missionary Unit, Commanding Officer;
    – Executive Director, Portland Crusade;
    – D/Executive Director, Los Angeles Crusade;
    – L. Ron Hubbard’s Butler;
    – Executive Establishment Officer;
    – RPF Bosun WUS, Childrens RPF Bosun
    – LRH Spaces Set Up Mission 2nd;
    – LRH Studio Construction Mission In Charge;
    – LRH Renovations Mission In Charge;
    – Utilities Installation Officer;
    – Registrar;
    – Sea Org Recruiter;
    – Sea Org Ethics Officer;
    – Sea Org Officer;
    – Missionary;
    – Security Mission In Charge;
    – Berthing Security Watch, Hemet (Rover)
    – RPF Tech In Charge;
    – RPF Case Supervisor;
    – RPF Section Leader;
    – RPF Member;
    – RPF Qualifications In Charge; and
    – Estates Project Force Mission In Charge.

    While I was on various posts at Gold, near Hemet California, I was also responsible for the following construction projects.

    – Constructing a full scale replica of a clipper ship complete with sauna and jacuzzi. This was in the desert;
    – Construction of kitchens and dining facilities in all the office facilities at the Hemet base;
    – A 20 Or 48 microphone battery lecture recording room;
    – An orchestra size music recording studio;
    – A film studio;
    – A complete 32 seat theater;
    – A complete film editing facility;
    – A complete sound editing facility;
    – A complete sound to film facility;
    – Two voice over studios;
    – A complete management office facility for CMOI;
    – A complete audio facility which had four individual recording booths and three lecture mixing studios;
    – A 60′ x 150′ file archives facility;
    – A 65′ x 165′ tapes archives facility;
    – a 150′ x 350′ three story manufacturing facility;
    – A dining facility that could accommodate 1,100 people for a minimum of three sittings per day;
    – A 200′ x 500′ construction and maintenance facility which houses the planning and buildings areas;
    – A complete apartment complex for celebrities;
    – A complete office facility for Miscavige;
    – A complete lounge facility for Miscavige;
    – A complete dressing room for Miscavige;
    – A complete sound room for Miscavige;
    – A complete exercise room for Miscavige;
    – A complete security lighting system for the perimeter of the Hemet base;
    – A complete deep well pump which provides 800 gallons per minute to a 16″ pipe supply system for the entire Hemet base;
    – A 1,000,000 gallon reservoir;
    – A 1.8 mile exercise course;
    – A nine hole golf course.
    – Several miles of paved roads.
    – Underground high voltage (12,500 volts) System
    – An emergency generation station with 750 KW or power for indefinite time.
    – A complete sewer system with 2 evaporation ponds to handle 4500 people.
    – A 115 million gallon lake.
    – A tennis court for Celebs and Miscavige
    – Berthing facility for children at the Happy valley base.
    – A large well for Happy Valley facility.

    28. In 1991 I had to prepare the base so that it could be defended against the possibility of being taken over by the authorities in a time of crisis. There are approx. 750 people at the base. I was in charge of a project designing the base security system, the perimeter fence, the ultra razor barriers, the lighting of the perimeter fence, the electronic monitors, the concealed microphones, the ground sensors, the motion sensors and hidden cameras which were installed and all over the area — even outside the base.

    29. Church monies were used to purchase semi-automatic assault rifles (HK 91 assault rifles capable of firing 300-350 rounds of ammunition a minute, 45 caliber pistols, .380 automatic weapons and twelve gauge shotguns were stockpiled. These weapons were not registered. Church monies were also used to buy the ammunition.

    30. Church monies were also used to purchase a large amount of pounds of gunpowder for the construction of various types of explosive devices to be used in the defense of the base.

    31. The motorcycle guards were trained to carry loaded cocked 45 caliber pistols. The eagle scout, mounted high above the base, was trained to carry a high powered rifle with a telescopic scope. There is also a 1,000 millimeter telescope up with ‘eagle’.

    32. I developed three classifications of intruder and established the level of deadly force to use for each. In addition to firearms, the guards were taught how to effectively wield little batons. The basic things like striking to the center of the heart, the center of the solar plex and then to the side of the head, etc.

    33. At church expense, I trained the security guards and other base personnel in the use of these weapons and explosives. I also trained them in the close quarter use of fatal force. We built a combat range for training purposes and I instructed Scientologists on various ways of shooting people. I also trained them in night vision and ambush techniques. We used a ravine that was a natural round shield so the noise would not cause any nosy inquiries.

      “In 1991 I had to prepare the base so that it could be defended against the possibility of being taken over by the authorities in a time of crisis.”
      Is that even possible? The best they could hope to do is to delay the authorities which have unlimited resources and manpower. I wonder exactly what their plan was? Pretty scary stuff here.

      • gtsix

        Ruby Ridge?

        • Michael Leonard Tilse

          Ruby Ridge and especially the siege of the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas electrified Scientologists.

          I know that I was worried at that time that a similar scenario would play out against Scientology and the Sea Org bases particularly. From the narrow, uninformed view of a Scientologist I thought we would be next for the “anti-religious government jackbooted terrorists.” I think many staff members and public members of Scientology had similar fears.

          in fact, the preparations made for just such an event by Scientology, and the wary reluctance of the FBI to act because of the previous disasters at RR and Waco made it impossible for the FBI to do its job.

          From the papers that Tony was able to publish about the recent FBI investigation, it seems that the FBI actually did its homework very well with regard to Scientology, speaking to many long term staff members who were at the highest level, bringing them into the loop and actually listening to them. Any raid would likely have been quiet, professional and successful. The exact opposite of what it seems they did at RR and Waco, where they ignored all evidence contrary to the pre-conceived notions the FBI and the BATF had about Koresh and the other Branch Davidians.

    • mandymarie20

      That’s exactly what I was referring to lower on the thread. This affidavit made it sound like a militia or death cult. That’s why the Eagle is fascinating and scary to me. Yes, it may just house a camera now, but the purpose was so much darker and could be darker again if needed.

    • WhiteCentauress

      Do you know if there are children on the base? In case there’s a Waco or something similar, it would be good to have advanced plans to rescue the innocent.

      • Techie

        No children any more. For a long time there was exactly one child, the daughter of Diana Hubbard Horwich, Roanne. But she has grown up and escaped now. There were children at the little ranch called Happy Valley, near the Soboba Indian Reservation. But they all left in the late 90s and the ranch was sold back to the Indians around 2000.

    Must churches put a cross on a mountain, Scientology puts a spy cam.

    Was the name Eagle’s Nest given to the Scientology Observation Point by Miscavige? Eagle’s Nest is the name of Hitler’s summer retreat at Berchtesgaden.

    • GrangerFX

      I think it is their name. The post below mentions the “eagle scout” is the person up the mountain with the big telescope lens. The location would naturally be called “eagle’s nest” therefor.

    • chuckbeattyxquackologist75to03

      One or more of the old Int Base guards knows, I think it was among themselves they gave it that label. It’s lonely duty, and not a job all the guards looked forward to. Jackson (Gary Moorehead) I think knows the exact history.

      • Techie

        They just called it “Eagle” not “Eagle’s Nest” as far as I recall.

        • chuckbeattyxquackologist75to03

          Yes, that is an important point which I think Jackson could definitively make, and Tony’s today blog is using what media have jumped on and the media may have misinterpreted 3rd hand, 4th hand, stories and expanded “Eagle” to “Eagle’s Nest”.

          But again, Jackson might know of the shortening of “Eagle’s Nest” to “Eagle” being consciously done, by someone back in Rick Aznaran’s day, some Int Base person may have known how stupid the full name “Eagle’s Nest” was and consciously shorted it to “Eagle.”

          Andre Taboyoyan would be good to hear tell what he recalls.

    • MarcabExpat

      But with a trifle less luxury.

    • grundoon

      AFAIK the Int Base lookout/sniper dugout was just Eagle, not Eagle’s Nest.

  • flyonthewall

    Do they even use the sniper nest? If it was manned, wouldn’t they of seen the drone coming? Not just this time but the other flybys too. I guess we wouldn’t know if they knew except that people were out and about in both videos, the last one less so but there was still movement at the 7min mark. I’m sure if it was spotted, they would of all been called inside until it was gone.

    • mandymarie20

      According to many and from the video, it seems like it’s unmanned now but used to be. It seems to just have cameras. Now whether they do something based on what they see . . .

      • flyonthewall

        weird bc it looks kept up. The netting seems to be in good condition and the vegetation is not over grown. If you’re just going to have cameras then why have the bunker? Maybe Miscavige just likes having it “in case”? *shrug*

    Lots of blue roofs, I wonder what that signifies, except the McMansion has a variegated asphalt shingle roof.
    The Eagle’s Nest, very appropriate allusion to Der Fuhrer, since $cientology is ruled by the DwarfenFuhrer. It looks like a 19th Century sod house in Nebraska, complete with what looks like a camouflaged TV camera.
    Also, there’s a few dead trees there, along with a minivan under a tarp.

    But the most interesting thing is what’s not there. Not a single living human to be seen. I’m not sure of what direction is what there, but the shadows indicate it’s either about two hours before noon or two hours after noon.
    Where is everyone?

      The blue roofs and stone veneer are supposed to look like Scottish slate roofs and stone. I forget why, but it was ordered by Hubbard. Not just a random idea of Dave’s. If anybody is around, they are working away inside and not wandering around outside. Jefferson Hawkins says below that there are probably around 400 still there, less than one per acre.

      • GrangerFX

        They may be supposed to look Scottish but blue roofs scream Japanese.

      • grundoon

        I wonder if the “Scottish” theme was supposed to bolster Hubbard’s cover story that the old Gilman resort now belonged to the “Scottish Highland Quietude Club”?

        Gerry Armstrong wrote…

        44. Around the time of my RPF assignment, the La Quinta cover was blown by some former crew members who went to the media about abuses at the base. As a result, Hubbard ordered another property purchased, a resort and golf course at Gilman Hotsprings, near Hemet, California, and he himself left the La Quinta base and hid out for some weeks in motels with a few personal staff. In early December 1978, the RPF members at La Quinta were ordered to Gilman Hotsprings, also known as the “Special Unit,” or “SU,” to renovate and decorate a house that Hubbard had chosen for his residence, and to renovate and decorate offices for him on the property. Over the next several months, the RPF removed all old insulation from Hubbard’s house, and reinsulated, rewired, replumbed, cleaned, painted, tiled, refurnished and redecorated it, and did the same for his offices.

        45. In the spring of 1979, on the same day that I was reprieved from the RPF, my wife Terri announced to me that she had been ordered that either she divorce me or she could not continue to be a Messenger for Hubbard. She said that she had chosen Hubbard and that was the end of our relationship. I continued to work on renovating Hubbard’s home, posted as the LRH Renovations In-Charge. In the summer of 1979, I was posted as the D/CO HU SU, the head of Hubbard’s “Household Unit” at Gilman. My “juniors” included the LRH Steward, the LRH Carpenter, the LRH Groundsman, the LRH Electrician and the LRH Gear In-Charge, who was responsible for his personal belongings stored on the Gilman property.

        46. During this period of time, Hubbard stayed with a number of Sea Org members on his personal staff in an apartment complex in Hemet. He came to the newly renovated and decorated house at Gilman on a number of occasion for clandestine meetings with Mrs. Hubbard or to supervise photographic shoots on the property. I was responsible for ensuring his home was clean and set up for his stay, and for his security arriving and leaving the Gilman base. Security for the entire base was top priority as it has been at La Quinta. Our initial “shore story” at Gilman was a fake organization called the “Scottish Highland Quietude Club.” I had a cover name of “Gerald Amery,” that had been arranged when I was in La Quinta, and I was given a “home address” in Los Angeles at a location I had never been to, but which was controlled by the GO.

      • Taffy Sinclair

        WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK? They did that to you, Ann???? Saran wrap your legs and run barefoot?? I’m a lot loss for words, and I have a Big fuckin’ mouth!!

        • Ann B Watson

          Oh yes and that was because these were the very early days of The Sweat Program which turned into something far worse called The Purification Rundown. And I ran up this dirt road in Griffith Park in the dark before the sun came up. Of course being the throughly Degraded Being I was targeted as it was a no brainer to treat me with any means possible to get me to confess my out Ethics. But those who endured the Hole, the 12 hour pole runs at Flag and Int Base and RTC properties & The Freewinds and being thrown in septic holding tanks and dms beatings had it far far worse I salute them all. I really should tell my whole story here I forget what I have told here or wanted to but have not yet.Thank you for caring and for your Big Mouth. 😘😘😘

          • Taffy Sinclair

            I do care, and I’m appalled at what you and your cohorts went thru. Did you really believe you were a DB at that time?? Christ, I hope not. You are a beautiful person, I see you post on here often. Keep speaking out against the abuse!!!

            • Taffy Sinclair

              Oh, I was offered the “purif” at one point. Said they could get me off my ADD meds. Red flags popped up after hearing about the “toxins” stored in my body. Thank G-d that I have sane parents!!!

            • Ann B Watson

              I Knew I was not what I was targeted as, but Taffy I see now there was a battle between my True Spirit & my signing of the Sea Org contract which bound me to the policies & teachings of Ron. When in the first two years I totally believed I would die in the Sea Org and come back in 21 years to continue the work of the Sea Org Forever. It was when I began to see the huge chasms between what Ron said and what he actually did that I started to be very concerned. And then throw in the Gardian’s Office now OSA & when I was being Security Checked for hours month after month & in lower conditions where after I worked my way back up out of the formulas, all the papers I had to get signed to verify this always disappeared and I had to start over. Plus my last year in Sea Org @ Asho F I was existing on apples and coffee as I was not allowed to eat in the mess because I was thought of as a Enemy by the GO so it was Attack, Attack ,Attack me never defend. That has been the cult’s mantra since day one and they are pulling it again on Leah and all with Aftermath2. I cannot believe I made it out.❤️

  • AntoniaW

    What is it about $cientology and aesthetics? As several of you guys have pointed out, “Gold” base is utterly hideous – the proportions are jarring, the materials utterly forgettable. The old conman set a very low bar, I suppose, by wrecking the setting of the perfectly lovely Georgian house at Saint Hill, cluttering up the grounds with bogus castle structures; but Miscavige seems to have an equally ghastly architectural vision all of his own. Don’t know about the rest of you, but to me this screams “minor corporate HQ”.

    • Noesis

      It’s what happens when a high-school dropout has too much time, money and power on his hands.

      Money cannot buy class and dumb cannot use power well.

      The result = Scientology.

  • nottrue

    I bet DM hates that the highway goes right through the middle of his base. I sure if he could he would have it moved..Maybe if he talked to the City Council Members one at a time.

    • $cnMonkeyNut$

      He’s certainly been trying for years, I’m sure Marc Headley mentions it in Blown For Good. (And the highway did appear gratifyingly busy in the drone video, which could make any attempts to close or divert it very expensive.)

        It is called the Swamp, for years it has been almost dry but I guess with the rains it has filled a bit. Back in the 30s it was the hot springs pool that gave the place the name “Gilman Hot Springs”.

    • J. Swift

      Gilman Springs Road (Highway 79) bisects the base. It is an important road that Scientology sought to close in the 2000’s so that COB’s sleep wasn’t disrupted by traffic. Also, it would make escape from the Base harder as the road would be closed and have barriers at either end.

      https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/63d153fe20d1fa2e0df791b514d41fc7350da4c607302c29b67b2072f7588476.png

        I’m surprised the Co$ didn’t offer Riverside County $15mm to re-route the road.
        A good night’s sleep for out precious COB has to be worth at least as much as a Florida swimming pool

        • Techie

          He really tried to get the road closed down. Busted Ken Hoden because he couldn’t do it as Port Captain, then tried again. Finally they did get Highway 79 to take another route, so it is just Gilman Springs Road now. But lots of folks go that way anyway, it is the fastest way to get to the Soboba Indian Bingo gambling hall.

      Amazing interview. Facts learned:
      1. It’s called “Eagle Booth”
      2. Using TP is called “signing your papers” but that’s military.
      3. They illegally ran power up there and guess what? They still have illegally run power up there for the cameras. You can see some of the cables lying on the ground in the video.
      This picture is from an earlier helicopter flight:

    The soldiers began looting Hitler’s stuff, and took as many place settings of his silverware they could get in a sack. His had an “H” engraved on it so I wonder what initials are on davey’s flatware ?

    Is it an M–for Miscavage…COB…LRH…or a “D”…for dwarfenführer ?
    Is it sterling or plate ?

    Of course the little prick dines in luxury while his slave-laborers eat beans and rice -with a spork,

    When will this insanity end ?

    • Mick Roberts

      When the agencies that are sworn to serve, protect, and defend, actually start serving, protecting, and defending their citizens against gross violations of human rights. In other words, when someone with the ability to end this madness finally grows some balls and takes responsibility for expediting the impending implosion of this organization.

        @Mick….so eloquently stated my friend. If ONLY, it seems like a dream statement, but dreams can and do come true….for many it may be a longer wait than hoped….we can only keep watching Aftermath #2, and get our letters out to the powers that be.
        I only WISH there was a “safe haven”….so many legal blockades to get anything even close to that done with building & safety & sanitary health regulations, along with concerns about providing meals….under strict sanitary requirements.

        • Mick Roberts

          Yes, a safe haven would be nice. Ironically, CofS doesn’t have to worry about those health regulations by hiding behind the First Amendment…….well, actually, only one part of the First Amendment….the free exercise of religion. Those other things…..freedom of speech, freedom of press, freedom to assemble, and a right to petition for redress of grievances (in spirit, even though CofS isn’t the Government)….are just fillers in their minds.

          • balletlady

            So well stated Mick…..heartbreakingly true. I did a lot of research in regard to legalities in setting up some type of safe haven to provide shelter, meals etc…..mind boggling to try to get this even started.

    So….to get back to the topic of the day…..out of curiosity, is that sniper’s nest, along with any weaponry they have, actually legal according to all California laws? I assume so, just wondering if anyone has ever looked into that.

    • Taffy Sinclair

      Cali has tons of paparazzi, so laws are probably different there….. just guessing..

    • balletlady

      Wondering if it’s an “early alert system”…..they can see people headed their way for miles….it would give a certain person and his team time to escape maybe thru underground passages and jettison themselves safely away to places unknown.

      • Mick Roberts

        Could be. Wondering more about the gun laws in California and if they have the proper permits and/or authority to carry those on “work property”.

        • balletlady

          You read my mind Mick…that is what I was wondering…..WHAT other purpose could there be but to “protect” at all costs what is NOT seen. It’s seemingly like a “sniper’s nest”……& I am sure there are underground passages so someone can “escape” if necessary.

    • GrangerFX

      If they have power up there but no permit, it probably is not legal. “Hi we are a cult with a large compound surrounded by razor wire and motion sensor activated lights to prevent our members from blowing. We would like a permit to run power up the side of a mountain to our snipers nest so we can spy on the people in Hemet.” Probably would not go over well.

      The story keeps rippling (days later) into more and more news sources.

    • WhiteCentauress

      My son works near Nashville. He was driving home, stopped for coffee, and sent me this text:

      “Sitting in Pizza Hut and there’s a story on channel 5 about the shutdown of the Scientology rehab center.” I told him to Google Lisa McPherson.

      • Supper Powers
      • Supper Powers

        More importantly, and I ask honestly and with only a little judgement, why on earth would he stop at Pizza Hut for coffee? Is there something I don’t know about the Hut’s Joe?!

        • WhiteCentauress

          It’s just a place half way through the commute. It breaks up his trip and allows traffic to thin out. He knows I’m a Scientology watcher. I don’t really want him coming here and possibly getting identified and tracked/trolled. He’s the one in my dog picture yesterday. Don’t know if you saw it. I’m protective. What happened with the trolls today was nasty. I know Tony will handle it. I don’t like drama. I do love the Bunker and I’m protective of it as well.

    • Kari Harris

      What a lovely piece of news to get after seeing the drone video! So no more pizza and locking people in cabins for days at a time. People will actually get help at REAL chemical addiction facilities. For a religion that has Science in its name, it is based on the drugged up fantasies of a madman. There’s nothing logical, scientific, or beneficial to their practices…..period

  • Kari Harris

    Why not create a new ID and use different verbiage than you normally would? That’s how I’ve dealt with trolls in the past, acting like I’m someone new in the group. This is an extreme amount of drama for something that really is so insignificant in your life. Cloning ID’s, trolling, and all that muck can be disabled if you just change your name. If the person is after BobbyTolberto AKA TDA, then don’t use that identity next time. You can get mad OR you can outthink your troll, which makes more sense 😉

    • Kari Harris

      As far as we know, you could be a crazy person trolling yourself (which I HAVE seen people do). If this “stalker” is bothering you, try something different, ask to borrow a friend’s ID to post with for a while, create a female undercover ID, or something else creative 🙂

    Dear Netflix.

    I am absolutely and totally in support of the LGBTQ community. I have marched in their parades and cried at my friend Gilbert and Wayne’s funerals because of Aids.

    That said… I am not a fan of sex on screen. Straight or gay. Sex on screen is boring. I’m not a prude by any means. It is just MEH to me. If it is a good story I always skip through the sex part and get to the Meat ( ha) of the movie..

    I love documentaries and watched one about an Older gay producer who videotapes young gay men.. and he was murdered by another film producer. ( can’t think of the title..don’t care )

    I gave it a thumbs up. Great movie.. ( They changed the rating system to thumbs up thumbs down)

    OK since then.. every movie having to do with GAY SEX has been recommended to me. EVERY. I love Bollywood and horror movies..romance and documentaries.. That is what you should recommend to me OK..

    ENOUGH OF THE GAY SEX Movies recommended to me. Good God. If I want to find them I promise I will.

    it doesn’t disturb me anymore than the straight sex.. I’m 70 and remember the days when people kissed passionately on screen and closed the room. I knew what they were doing I didn’t have to see their freckles on their backsides..

    OK rant over. Back to find Bollywood. xox love baby..

        Dammit Jimmy I was just about to pass out. Now I am wide awake. You owe me a 40 ouncer.

        • Jimmy3

          That is definitely my fault. I apologize.

          • Supper Powers

            She wants malt liquor not sowwies.

            • Jimmy3

              I wouldn’t respect anyone who didn’t prefer malt liquor to sowwies.

      • Baby

        Bawwwwwwwhahhhahhha… You are funny Netflix. You think you know me.. YOU DO NOT know me. Quit recommending shit .. Dayam.

        Much Love…. Baby Cakes

      It is like this except that instead of gay sex, it is toast and instead of NetFlix it is TalkyToaster. The rest is pretty much the same.

        hahahhaha.. YES.. exactly like that Granger! I swear to God..

    • Baby

      I must add..Lately I have been obsessed with RuPaul’s Drag Race..like I always get.. OBSESSED. So I watch the Untucked show also ( on youtube) So that got me thinking of Ru’s getting his start in NY ..so of course..

      Youtube.. Club kids ..Watched them on every channel that had them back then.. Ru working as a Go go dancer.. and found this fabulous guy Nelson Sullivan who had a Camcorder and filmed everything happening in NY nightlife..and of course Michael Musto .. OMG..

      I am NOT exaggerating. Watched Monster Party Movie ( again) Monster Shockumentary ( Again)
      about Michael Alig and Freeze killing Angel ..

      I am getting out of control… but I think my obsession is winding down and I’ll continue my obsession with Scientology. It is scary being obsessed with 2 things at once.

      Well 3 if you count Saltine Crackers that I’ve been eating by the Sleeve.

      • Jimmy3

        I watched Party Monster because the brief plot synopsis on the on-demand menu was suitably intriguing to match my buzz. And I had no idea what was going on at first, or what the fuck I was seeing, but that film is a trip. Why is the Home Alone kid dressed like a chicken fucked a neon light? Wait, what? But I would watch it again.

        • Liberated

          That’s actually a true story, Michael Alig ( the main character) is in prison in Indiana.

          • Jimmy3

            I learned that later. When I watched it, I had no idea. I thought it was just a crazy story.

            • Liberated

              This happened during the disco years….young gay kids dressed up in wild costumes and got paid to party and entertain people at Studio 54 etc.
              Things got carried away and he and another guy killed their drug dealer. The Seth Green character wrote the book, “Disco Bloodbath ” that the movie was based on.
              I remember watching that on hbo long ago.

            • Jimmy3

              Do you think disco really died, or did it fake its own death and moved to Florida?

            • Liberated

              You know ….that’s a possibility!
              Doesn’t everyone and everything eventually move to Florida?

            • ExCult.Jan

              Hell, no.

            • Baby

              I still love Disco.. ( When I hear them that is) Love the BGs..

              But.. forget Travolta in Disco fever. ugh..

            • flyonthewall

              there’s a cool documentary on Netflix about that whole thing. Glory Daze

          • Baby

            He was released Lib..

            God knows I know.. I’ve watched him on Youtube being interviewed.. blah, blah.. I could win Jeopardy on questions about him alone.

            • Liberated

              No shit …I did not know that.

              I’m buying good tomatoes in a couple days and will make you a wonderful BLT by the weekend. Keep a lookout !

            • Baby

              You know I love my BLTs.. darkly toasted please..xo

      • Liberated

        I’ve currently been eating saltines too..wow !

        • Baby

          Just finished my nightly Sleeve.. I love them..absolutely love them..but I have GOT to stop.. sigh

    • Kay (aka Nasty Lady)

      ITA….I just hate sex scenes of any kind in movies. I think they are boring, contrived, and from what every single actor/actress I have heard interviewed about doing sex scenes, they absolutely hate doing them. They usually add nothing of value to the movie at hand. I just find myself going “oh geez here comes the obligatory sex scene.” Also, having been a nurse for a zillion years, I have seen more naked bodies than I care to recall, I don’t need to see any more.

      Katherine Hepburn said at one point in late in her career when actresses were being pressured to take off their clothes or be fired that actresses are artists, not strippers, and that it was highly offensive that any woman should be required to disrobe or simulate sex onscreen in order to get a leading role in a movie. I think that goes for anybody, regardless of gender.

      Baby, I’m sorry they are targeting you thinking that’s all you want to watch. That happened to me as well after I watched a very thoughtful documentary about the suicide of a young gay man. For the next few months, they targeted me sending me tons of links to gay porn movies. I had watched a DOCUMENTARY for heaven’s sake !! They failed to see the distinction. I felt like you did….if I want to watch movies like that, I can certainly find them myself. Geez.

      • Baby

        You said it so much better than I did Kay.. I’m trying to think of a film that it was necessary to show sex..still thinking.. hmmm Can’t think of any..

        Good Old Kate Hepburn. Always liked her.

        Thanks Kay.. You can tell I had had it at the point of my post. Jeeze. They think they’ve got my number? pfffffffffffffffffffffft night sweetie..yawwwwwwn

        • Jimmy3

          Mulholland Drive

          • Baby

            Not a David Lynch fan.. and hate dreams that go in and out of the film..couldn’t follow it and I forget the sex scene. MEH.. xo

    • Oni Campioni

      As a gay person, trust me, you have so much less to complain about. There are a handful of gay films and films with gay sex in it. Imagine being a gay person tired of having to see straight sex everywhere, having to hear people talk about it all the time. It’s much worse. It’s even in movies about gay people. Sorry for your troubles, but you got the better end of the stick.

      • Baby

        OH Oni.. I feel your pain. You are right…
        …………………………………………………..
        ” But you got the better end of the stick. ”

        Ahhhhhhhhhh yes..I remember those days well.. ha

        • Oni Campioni

          lol yes, pun somewhat intended

          • Baby

            Well.. It really was a fabulous one.. Bravo..

      • Kay (aka Nasty Lady)

        Never thought of that….good point.

  • Following-up on my earlier comment regarding Scientology CCHR Oregon continuing to recommend the alleged Tennessee False Imprisonment Facility (which was based on a link in one of Tony’s earlier posts), I did some Googling and found that the main Scientology CCHR website also continues to recommend the facility:

  • You really are a freak if you think you can pull this off. Every time you post in the Backposts, someone is looking. Every time you delete a post, someone has a copy! The Internet never forgets.

  • Baby

    Night all.. 5 more comments we will have 1,000 … love you all..

  • Eivol Ekdal

    Thanks Angry Thetan, thanks Tony for this wonderful story/video.

  • John Prince

    I wonder if the Drone Pilot could manage to Hang a “CALL ME” Banner atop the Sump Signal Tower?

    • Juicer77

      That would be hilarious – HOWEVER probably illegal and you can be sure the Co$ would press charges.

      • John Prince

        If they don’t need no steenkin’ permits, we don’t 😎

    • balletlady

      Too bad they can’t drop some leaflets like the did during the WWI, WWII & Korea……
      “If you want OUT give us a call”……

    Totally O/T but just to amuse – some more J&D treatment for the Cherch: http://laist.com/2017/05/08/cultoff_2017.php#photo-1

    • Baby

      OMG Antonia..that is funny.. ha

    • daisy

      I love maple syrup but a butter pat with LRH initials might be easier to work with . ( unless it is summer – oh I see that it always is )

  • daisy

    So where are they hiding the comment section on the new story ?

    • RexAinsfree

      I wondered that, too, and finally noticed that if you look at that thin grey bar underneath all of the material posted by Tony, where it says the date & category, it will say something like “18 comments”, and if you click on the “18 comments” it will take you into the comment section.
      I decided to watch the beautiful drone footage again before I go there 🙂

      • daisy

        Thx so much

        • RexAinsfree

          You bet. I’m surprised that I found that, cuz I’m on 1st coffee of the day!

  • Natural Philosopher

    Sad to see all those building that I took part in the building of, all going to waste! Many an hour and day was spent – mudding, sheetrocking, framing, block building, roofing, painting, and then the landscaping – god, the landscaping! It all looks so well maintained, but at what price. Davie, you owe me for all the work I put in on the spaces you are enjoying in your lonely conference room, lonely Tower or Sauren, and lonely base. I see some familiar landmarks like the Horwich House and Finance trailers have dissappeared! The base looks soul-less, noone around, a well kept but lifeless monolith to wee Davie’s vaunted ambitions.

  • Ann B Watson

    Hi TDA, Seen your posts here. I am sorry a troll trolled you. I have Instant Vanishing Spray one squirt and over the Abyss the trolls roll! Keep Strong.❤️

  • Angelbug

    Scn is so interesting to its members because LRH made it possible to actually LIVE science fiction! For a hefty price. I was always a sci fi fan and I was succored in so easy because of that.

  • Capt Kirk

    Love the drone video – mesmerizing. Just after minute 9 you can see that someone emerged from the black car that was driving up the compound road and he/she is clearly watching the drone. I’m sure COB would have ordered it shot down if he believed he could get away with it. No doubt these drone flyovers have created a flurry of panic inside the Church. Can $cientology survive in the information age? One must wonder…

    • balletlady

      DM will probably spend his “ill gotten gains” on having a “super dome” installed over the entire area….I would not doubt it for a moment….Just imagine a half sphere opening and closing as soon as a drone tries to fly over it to film……

  • SkyBill40

    That flyover is… beautiful yet terrifying at the same time. That camo covered surveillance/sniper post? Wow.
