Superhuman Scientology OT 8 makes news for being unable to control matter, space, and time

This is my Scientology OT8 sister. She has made the local news for becoming the victim of a misunderstanding: Her business has a similar name to an online camera vendor, and angry customers unable to find a phone number for the camera company are calling her Niagara Falls resort on her toll-free phone line. The phone number was apparently being given out by Amazon, which didn’t realize it was directing angry camera customers to the wrong “Campark.”

My sister doesn’t look very happy at all in spite of having done the entire Scientology Bridge. She will never admit to having “pulled this situation in.” In Scientology when something bad like this happens to a wog (a non-Scientologist), they obviously “pulled it in,” but if a Scientologist who is in the upper echelons has this happen then it’s definitely a “suppressive person” in the area causing the problem. But never themselves. You can feel the righteous indignation.

If she were really to apply Scientology to this she would sit down and write up all of her overts and withholds on Amazon. I can assure you this will never happen.

And so much for Scientology “Cause over Life.” After a year of trying to handle this we see that it hasn’t resolved at all.


Willie and I were chuckling that since her troubles on this started shortly after we arrived she would very possibly attribute me as being the “SP in the area,” even though we have no contact with her.


If the CHCH News station had dug a little deeper they’d find that the owners of Campark, Niagara Falls are Scientologists. They’ve donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Scientology over the years.

In fact all around Campark (the campground, not the camera company) they have Hubbard quotes printed on the sides of their trash cans.

Scientology is an abusive cult that has destroyed and broken up thousands of families, been investigated for human trafficking, stalked and harassed its ex-members through their policy of Fair Game, and have numerous lawsuits against them for their abuses. Complaining about a bit of extra phone bill pales when compared to nearly a million dollars given to a dangerous cult.

I know this might sound like I’m a bit mean towards my sister, but I do have to admit I still carry a little grudge. She is the one who knowingly broke up my family and got our kids to disconnect when she reported our errant Facebook connections with a few Scientology exes to OSA at Flag. (Yes, that’s all it was about originally.).

I do hope she gets out of Scientology at some point but she is the most hard core of all of us, and I find it very unlikely she will wake up.

“Let’s start back a little further, where you will find quite a few PCs. And that is the Marcab, or the Big Dipper area of this particular galaxy, which received the immigration from another galaxy into this galaxy, and which set up a society which kept going for a very, very long time — a society which is something on the order of about 208,000 years back on the track. Now, that period rather ended and ceased and desisted for that particular society somewhere about 10,000 years ago. So you see, that is a long, rough society. Well now, oddly enough, people went out of that society as thetans and came back into it again. So you get that society, the Marcab society, punctuated with lives spent in completely unidentified, Lord-knows-where planets. And you get such odd things, you know, as fish people. You know? Well, where did they come from? Who are they?” — L. Ron Hubbard, November 27, 1959



Avast, Ye Mateys

“MISUNDERSTOOD NIXON: Imagine my surprise and hilarity to find that President Nixon is pursuing current economic policies because of a misunderstood word…The word ‘inflation’ is being used in a mis-defined definition by the Administration. All this Wage-Price freeze that Nixon has been putting on is because he thinks the word ‘inflation’ is caused by and means ‘prices increasing.’ He and his beer hall buddies publicly state that ‘the rate of increase in prices is synonymous with the rate of inflation.’ Therefore, all one has to do is freeze wages and one will cure inflation…Looking over this literature I see that when I studied economics at Princeton University I came to some conclusions which were so obvious to me that I thought they were a part of the textbooks…Anyway, the economic trouble we are handling and our hard work to survive and remain viable is being made necessary because of a misunderstood word.” — The Commodore, November 27, 1971


Overheard in the FreeZone

“I have experienced the overwhelm that OT3 handles, and it is not pleasant and it invalidates the state of Clear. So I have a firsthand knowledge of what Ron says when he says Clears are at risk. I’m not saying this to frighten Clears or Preclears reading this, mine was, hopefully, an unusual sort of case that got handled on OT3 and then the Nots auditing knocked it out of the park and resultant freedom and relief from those levels are hard to describe. I have met and seen on TV those classified as insane, and it’s obvious that many are in a total dramatization of the OT3 phenomena. For psychiatrists to then drug or shock them, lays in the engram on top of that pitiful state, so I tend to be understanding when Ron gets a tad critical of the psychiatric profession as even well done objectives will do much to help them. I just wanted to comment to those out there wandering whether to keep going or not. Do!”


Past is Prologue

1996: John Travolta appeared on the Oprah Winfrey show and discussed Scientology with an uncritical Oprah and audience.
“OPRAH: I know back there my producers are going OOHH my God Scientology…
TRAVOLTA: You can be a Catholic Scientologist …and a Protestant Scientologist and a Baptist Scientologist. We have every denomination.

OPRAH: So what is the center… I never understand, what is it…
TRAVOLTA: It’s mainly to help you survive better on the planet. We’re in trouble on this planet, you know, in a lot of ways…
OPRAH: So is it… It’s not a religion?
TRAVOLTA: Well it is technically, because by law, and by the dictionary, you have to go… that term. Because it deals with the spiritually end… through spiritually and physically at times… Like Dianetics is the body… It deals with injuries, and emotional upsets, and things like that… That’s very specific and it deals with the body, and the mind. And the Scientology deals with church… of the trade, to survive better, on the planet.”


Random Howdy

“In ‘Road To Xenu’ Margery Wakefield recounts sitting around in the Sea Org cafeteria watching Star Trek and they were laughing because the wogs didn’t realize that the stuff on the screen was the writer’s suppressed whole track memories. Hubbard said somewhere that science fiction, if not all fiction, was whole track memories unbeknownst to its authors.”
