Scientology is trying extra hard to get you to fork over more money, you pesky thetan!

[Scientology attorney William Forman and Danny Masterson]

Today’s event in the criminal prosecution of Danny Masterson was scheduled to be a short hearing on a defense motion to dismiss, but it started out with a surprising appearance by attorneys for the Church of []

Another crucial Scientology eyewitness coming forward, starting today at the Bunker

 Louise Shekter is a well known name to Sea Org members who sailed with L. Ron Hubbard. Her career in Scientology is rather astounding, from serving on the Apollo, to a stint in the Guardian’s Office, and much more. She’s never spoken publicly about her experiences before, but we’re incredibly excited that she’s beginning to []

And now for this word from Scientology about how great everything is!

 On Friday we brought you a rather amazing (and disturbing) recruitment video from the crew at Scientology’s Orlando “Ideal Org.” The video seemed to use a reference to Adolf Hitler as a way of spreading fear over the measures being aimed at the lethal pandemic, and proposed working for Scientology as a kind of []

Scientology celebrates the sheer competence of a superpower OT 8, and so will we

 When someone reaches the pinnacle of Scientology achievement — completing the auditing level of Operating Thetan Level Eight — it’s really a big deal. This is someone who has dedicated years to the pursuit, has spent something like half a million to two million dollars to get there, has completed the level itself while aboard []

Scientology’s global conquest: Founder L. Ron Hubbard stressed ‘put in ethics’ to foil enemies


We were going through a pile of early Scientology materials and ran across a 1966 account of his African travels from L. Ron Hubbard that we found particularly entertaining. It has been posted to the Internet before, but we don’t think we’ve discussed it here at the Bunker. We do remember a few years ago []

Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard in WW2: Notes from a prohibited war diary

[Shipmates: Hubbard and Nolan]

PickAnotherID is a member of the Underground Bunker community who is a veteran with expertise in military records. Previously, he documented more thoroughly than anyone ever has the extent of the Church of Scientology’s “stolen valor” concerning bogus claims about founder L. Ron Hubbard’s World War 2 record. Now he’s back with []
