UCLA’s voice of the Rose Bowl & Pauley Pavilion scores Scientology Super Power!

[Chuck White at Pauley]

Yesterday’s news about David Miscavige becoming a fixture at the Flag Land Base wasn’t the only interesting thing we found in the latest issue of Scientology’s Source magazine.

We also found among the various testimonials from Scientologists about the fabulous time they’d had at Scientology’s spiritual mecca in Clearwater, Florida, a humdinger of an endorsement from someone who, the magazine said, wants to get the word out about his superpowers!

“Professional sports announcer Chuck White is ready to broadcast the news that this is the rundown every Scientologist should do,” the article said, and heck, we’re happy to help get the word out!

We’ll have to admit that growing up in LA, one of the things we inherited from good old Dad was a reverence for John Wooden and the legendary Bruins men’s basketball teams of the 1960s and 1970s. And there’s no doubt that a short list of the greatest shrines to sports excellence anywhere would have to include Pauley Pavilion and the Rose Bowl.

And isn’t it fun to know that the man whose voice you hear over the PA system announcing players and their exploits at those two venues is an OT Scientologist who has now achieved Super Power!


Completing the various “rundowns” that make up Super Power would have run Chuck something in the tens of thousands of dollars, but take a look at his testimonial and soak up just how excited he is.


A Game Changer
Professional sports announcer Chuck White is ready to broadcast the news that this is the rundown every Scientologist should do

I have a great job. I announce sporting events to millions of people — including March Madness (the college basketball tournament) and games for LA’s two NBA teams, the Lakers and the Clippers. I also do voice roles on popular TV shows. My adventure in Scientology began over a dozen years ago when I realized I needed more than just professional success to be happy. So step by step I made progress on the Bridge through March of last year, when I completed New OT V. At that point, things started to get a little crazy on this planet and I realized I must power up now. No more waiting or hoping it will work out — this whole darn planet needs help and that help can only come from us Scientologists! And so, I made it to Flag to do Super Power! And it’s been a bombastic, incredible, over-the-ramparts adventure!

If Super Power was just the Ethics and Justice Rundown alone, I would have run out of the building screaming “Hallelujah.” But it is so much more. All of the rundowns are so powerful. For instance, while on the False Data Rundown, I had my attention on work — I had over 15 games to announce in LA, but how could I handle them when I am here at Flag? And then I started receiving texts that several of the games I was scheduled for had been cancelled. And another that said: “Chuck, we know you are in Florida and hope you are well, and we want you to stay down there for another two weeks.” No problem at all! I would be happy to! I was in the safest bubble on this planet.

What’s next for me? I will spread the word far and wide about how great Super Power is. Imagine if you will a world where all spiritual leaders, politicians and captains of industry came to Flag to do Super Power. The world would indeed be a better place.

Chuck said it: He’s dedicated to spreading word far and wide about Super Power, and we’re happy to lend him a hand. We also reached out to him to see if he wanted to add anything else, and we’ll let you know if he gets back to us.

UPDATE: One of our readers pointed out that the Bruins lost to the Oregon State Beavers last night in the PAC-12 conference tournament, 83-79, and that Chuck White’s OT powers were of no avail to help the UCLA squad. Well, the game was played in Las Vegas, so we don’t know if Chuck was the PA announcer for the game. But that does bring up an interesting question. If Chuck White really does have the supernatural abilities of an OT Scientologist with added Super Power, shouldn’t he have to report that to the league? After all, according to L. Ron Hubbard’s lectures, couldn’t Chuck throw out a few anchor points of theta energy and slow down the opposing team? And if he can’t, isn’t he owed a refund?

“Let’s be some distance from the body, if possible. Some distance from the body and find some places where you are not. Some more places where you are not. Now some things from which you are not exteriorizing. Some things you’re not at this moment getting out of. And now some things that aren’t pulling you into them. And some things you are not getting out of. And now some things you’re not stuck in. Some more things you’re not stuck in. Now some energy masses that aren’t wrapping themselves around you at this moment. All right. Now some energy masses you aren’t wrapping yourself around at this moment. And now some effort you are not at this moment trying to get out of. Some effort you’re not trying to keep from expending at this moment. All right.” — L. Ron Hubbard, March 12, 1954


Avast, Ye Mateys

“SOURCE TO CAUSE: I’ve heard it said that as ‘source’ I should handle something way outside my general activity. This is a confusion between SOURCE and CAUSE. Whereas I am source of data, overall coordination and planning, You are CAUSE over your area. Results are the effect of your own efforts. When these support general programmes we all win. You should not minimize yourself as CAUSE. It is your greatest ability. Being Blamed sometimes blunts Being Cause. But if one’s total ambition is to be blameless the best situation is to get one’s name on a tombstone. And it’s no fun being dead. Being CAUSE over Matter, Energy, Space, Time, Force, Form, Location and Life is just another way of saying ‘OT’.” — The Commodore, March 12, 1970



Overheard in the FreeZone

“Clear really is something spectacular and very worthwhile, and highly stable. Despite all the knocks and bullying I’ve had over the past 40 years, the state is beyond price. Clear has not been available in the Church of Scientology for many years now, you won’t find it there. But if one were to follow the procedures exactly as laid out in DMSMH, Clear is still available for free. If Ron had done nothing else after the publication of DMSMH it would still remain a workable system to achieve Clear. I warmly recommend it.”


Past is Prologue

1999: Protests were held at Scientology orgs this week to commemorate L. Ron Hubbard’s birthday. From Jens Tingleff, at Saint Hill: “What with the nice banner reading ‘$cientology says you’re full of dead aliens’ set up right across from the gate and the boom-box blaring away contentedly off on the right, I’m sure we got a lot of attention from the clams. There was certainly a lot of cars who had errands inside Saint Hill who slowed DOWN to read our sign as they turned into the gate. Two guys were out photographing. The second one had the biggest camera and thought that the tape playing LRH going ‘VRRROOOOOOMMMMMMMM!!’ and ‘The man on the cross, there was no Christ’ was hilarious.”


Random Howdy

“I’m not ‘hating’ on anybody — especially folks I don’t even know — but on the other hand I don’t believe in turning a blind eye in order to maintain a positive front. My sister undoubtedly put her kids in the Sea Org, and for that I could never forgive her.”
