 We’re continuing to count down the months in our 2016 year-in-review, and today we’re looking back at the stories covered here at the Underground Bunker during February. (But we’re still continuing to cover breaking news, never []

Oh, this awful year. From the deaths of David Bowie and Prince, to the senseless violence of the Orlando shooting and the horrific Bastille Day in Nice, to a grinding presidential election that put everyone at each other’s throats, this has been a year to forget and one we’re happy to turn []

Scientology’s 2015: Another year is in the books at the Underground Bunker!

 What a year it’s been. As 2015 slips away, we hope you celebrate another revolution around the Sun with good friends and good cheer.

Ron Hubbard’s name out []

Scientology’s 2015 in review: Our July travels, and the day care story we can’t forget

 We want to thank everyone who’s been sending us warm holiday wishes. We apologize that we’ve been slow to respond to messages. Like everyone else, we have a lot going on in our subterranean lair during these final days of the year. But in the meantime, we continue to look back at the stories that []

On Boxing Day, we remember the last time Scientology tried to knock out the press

 While we’re recovering from Christmas here in New York, in other parts of the world our readers are celebrating Boxing Day, a holiday which is generally a complete mystery to us Americans. (And yes, we know it has nothing to do with the sport of boxing.) Well, whatever it is you all get up to []

Merry Christmas 2015: Here’s your Scientology present under the tree

 While David Miscavige excitedly runs to his Christmas tree this morning to find what gifts his Sea Org workers bought him by scraping together money from their 40-cents-an-hour pay (yes, they actually do that), we have our own Christmas miracle for our []
