Grant Cardone selling superhuman med beds to the wealthy sounds very Scientological

The person in the video you see below is Dana White. He’s president of the Ultimate Fighting Championship, a mixed martial arts organization obsessively followed by its fans, who tend to be younger men. Dana has been dealing with some controversy since he was caught on tape on New Year’s Eve slapping his wife in a drunken brawl. But we’re more interested in something he said a few months ago on the “Action Junkeez” podcast.

White said that he’d had bloodwork done by an expert in Miami who said, based on a blood draw and DNA sample, that he could pinpoint White’s death to the month, and that he had 10.4 years to live.



In an unedited version of the recording, we find that it’s a biologist named Gary Brecka who claimed he could pinpoint White’s death date, and that his company is known as “10X Health System.”

White also mentioned that the company was owned by Grant Cardone.

We know Cardone as Scientology’s hammy get-rich huckster who has made a fortune with a heavy use of social media.

We had previously reported that Cardone was branching out from buying and selling apartment buildings and getting into such sketchy areas as stem cell therapy.

And we want to thank the reader that brought “10X Health Systems” to our attention, because wow, this is next-level stuff.

You see, after Dana White was told that his death could be pinpointed to the month, he was then offered a longer life if he would just follow the 10X Health System plan.

See how that works? Clever. You’re going to die next week — unless you give us a boatload of cash.

So what are some of the things that 10X Health System has on offer? Well, you thought Scientology prices were nutty.

One of the lines you can invest in is the “Superhuman Protocol” which is described in this way: “The Superhuman Protocol is specifically designed to help your DNA function properly so that you can look, feel, and be great.”

Hey, that sounds scientific. Let’s look at the products for sale.



130 grand for a tanning bed, some oxygen, some “pulsed electromagnetic field therapy,” and some red lights? Where do we sign up!

But wait, there’s more! You too can get in on the superhuman DNA industry with a 10X Health System franchise!


Is Grant, our tipster asked, “trying to cash in on the QAnon ‘med bed’ BS?”

(If you check in on our blog about the QAnon movement, “The Lowdown,” you may know that some Q patriots seem to believe that the “elites” are keeping miracle “med bed” technology from us that would heal us instantly from any disease, sort of like Dr. McCoy’s gadgets on the Starship Enterprise.)

But we also can’t help wondering about Grant’s side gig sort of setting up a competition with his Scientology principles here. Who’s going to want to go through the TRs in the hopes of raising IQ, when you can fork out for a med bed that maximizes the effectiveness of your DNA?

And at Scientology-like prices, too. Is Grant setting up competition with Scientology, or is he squirreling here? (In Scientology, “squirrels” are those who make their own use of L. Ron Hubbard’s ideas outside the strict guidelines of the church itself.)

Why sit in a Scientology sauna for a month, for example, when you can hurry up your transformation with Grant’s 10X IV setup!



Gosh, ever wonder what it would be like to have government agencies that actually looked into flim flam artists pretending to administer medicine?

Yeah, those were the days.


Technology Cocktail

“There is the principle in Scientology called pan-determinism. This could be loosely defined as determining the activities of two or more sides in a game simultaneously. For instance, a person playing chess is being self-determined and is playing chess against an opponent. A person who is pan-determined on the subject of chess could play both sides of the board. One is pan-determined about any game to which he is senior.” — L. Ron Hubbard, 1956



We first broke the news of the LAPD’s investigation of Scientology celebrity Danny Masterson on rape allegations in 2017, and we’ve been covering the story every step of the way since then. At this page we’ve collected our most important links as Danny faces a potential sentence of 45 years to life in prison. NOW WITH TRIAL INDEX.

Source Code

“Authorship of the universe is something which has been in question for many years. People have been arguing about this for a long time. Even in ancient times the Christian argument with the conservative, status quo religion of Rome involved the creation of the universe. Who created the universe? In the early days of Greece, you found the various factions fighting over this fact of the actual creator of the universe. People have a tendency to run it backwards and try to find an earlier creator or a master creator, or this and that. What are they looking for? They’re looking for you! You’re hunted! To that degree, you’re hunted. Fascinating.” — L. Ron Hubbard, January 22, 1957



Avast, Ye Mateys

“SMERSH: We have heard directly from the head of Smersh ‘Ban the Bomb Carstairs’ whose contempt for anyone else’s intelligence leads him to state he knows nothing about any attacks on Scientology. Ding, ding, ding, here comes the wagon! Plans for Ship Operation. I haven’t got any. Have you? Nice warm sun.” — The Commodore, January 22, 1970


Overheard in the FreeZone

“Idiots. Apparently the vaccine manufacturers didn’t know (or perhaps they do), that glycol was used on injections on the R6 Bank engram 75 million years ago. Now the idiots are wondering if polyethylene glycol is causing the gruesome Covid 19 vaccine adverse reactions.”


Past is Prologue

2001: Mike Krotz reported that the body which washed up on a St. Petersburg beach belonged to a former Scientologist. “I have it on very good authority that this was the son of two area Scientologists. He was kicked out of the house some years ago, as he would not follow the teachings adhered to by his parents. They ‘disconnected’ from his ‘thetan infested meat body,’ and refused to have anything to do with him.”


Random Howdy


“Scientology doesn’t have to murder people. It just drives them crazy and they end up murdering others or they kill themselves. Scientology may have murdered someone in the past, but there’s no conclusive proof — and critics talking like it’s a fact just makes them look kinda obsessed and a little bit nuts to outsiders.”
