Bunkeroos vs. Scientologists

Posted on June 30, 2016 by Mark C. Rathbun | 28 Comments

The cult of Tony Ortega has recently surpassed the church of Scientology in dysfunctionally partisan behavior. I have obtained documentary evidence that Bunkeroos (slavish believers and followers of the word of The Underground Bunker) have been soliciting donations to hire private investigators. * * * *

Orange is the New Black S04E06

Sorry for the quality, not my video, just the first one I found on Youtube. Scientology and Going Clear mentioned about a minute in.

This is funny in its own right, but combined with the fact that one of the main stars of the show, Laura Prepon, is an active Scientologist, I thought this was pretty interesting. Haven't seen any reactions from her regarding it. Seems to me this means she's working with a suppressive group.

If the average Scientologist was working in a company that actively attacked Scn, they'd be forced to disconnect. Wonder how things are working out for her in the org.

Lisa Marie Presley's custody request has worry about Scientology written all over it

She Knows: Lisa Marie Presley’s divorce could expose scary details from her marriage

* * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

by Caroline Goddard

Lisa Marie Presley's custody request has Scientology written all over it.

Lisa Marie Presley has filed for divorce from Michael Lockwood, and her custody request could mean something terrible was going on.

Presley wed Lockwood, a musician, in 2006, and the couple has twin girls together. And that is the interesting part of her divorce petition. She asks for no alimony, no child support, really nothing at all — except she wants full custody of the girls and only wants to allow Lockwood to have monitored visits.


Another possibility could revolve around Scientology. Presley reportedly left the controversial religion several years back, and her defection was reportedly the reason she and Lockwood moved to England. However, it was soon discovered that their country manor was just down the road from Scientology's 59-acre British headquarters. So did Lockwood return to the religion he practiced when he and Presley wed?

If so, that could be a key part to the mystery of the monitored visitation request. As Leah Remini disclosed upon her escape from Scientology, once you leave you are considered a "Suppressed Person" until and unless you return, and until then, your former Scientology friends and family totally cut you out of their lives. When Katie Holmes left Tom Cruise, she reportedly kept her plans ultra top secret so that the actor couldn't take their daughter Suri and turn her against her mom like he allegedly did with his children from his marriage to Nicole Kidman.

Tony Ortega: Fred Haseney hit with a summons as Scientologist seeks restraining order

[Photographs omitted from excerpt.]

* * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

By Tony Ortega, June 26, 2016

Fred G. Haseney, a former Scientologist who has been documenting Scientology’s activities in Los Angeles with photography, was served papers yesterday which indicate that a church member is seeking a restraining order against him for stalking her.

Scientology employee Beatriz Castro Macias, represented by Scientology’s in-house attorney, Kendrick Moxon, is seeking the restraining order because, she claims, Haseney followed her home after his protests against the church.

Haseney denies that he’s stalked or followed Macias, a person he doesn’t know by that name.

“I have never followed her home and have no idea what she’s talking about. I’ve never gone to her place of work repeatedly and I’ve never stalked her there. Everything she has said is not truthful,” Haseney tells us. “I have only said ‘hello’ when she happened to walk by. Scientology and the Sea Org just don’t want me anywhere near PAC Base, and getting Beatriz to play along with their hijinks is just another bad thing that they’re going to be remembered for.”

He noted that the home address Beatriz listed — the one she says Fred surveilled — is a well known Sea Org berthing in the area, a set of apartments owned by the church and known as the Anthony Building. He denies ever following her home to the building, or in any other way casing it like her complaint proposes.

Jenny at LAX: Scientology the Bully—Part 1—CH-100—A Request for Civil Harassment Restraining Order Against Me

* * * * * BEGIN INTRODUCTION * * * * *

This is Photojournalist Fred G. Haseney with his eye on scientology. I normally report from the Pacific Area Command Base (“PAC Base” or “Big Blue”), the so-called “church” of scientology’s West Coast headquarters, located on L. Ron Hubbard Way (“LRH Way”). I can’t go anywhere near a scientology facility for fear of being arrested.

A stranger served me a Temporary Restraining Order (“TRO”), at 6:15 PM, Saturday, June 25, 2016, in the parking lot outside Rite Aid, located at 1637 N. Vermont Ave., in Los Angeles. Just a few blocks away from PAC Base, as four individuals gathered to prepare for a peaceful protest against scientology, a well-fed man with a huge, hospital-issued bandage over his left cheek served me with papers that sent me home. And as I prepared to take a picture of the guy, he sped away. As I arrived at the location, and before the other protesters arrived, I discovered a spy across the street, apparently sent to scout the location in order to tell the Process Server that it would be safe to proceed in serving me.

Now that I’ve been served with a TRO, there is nothing whatsoever I can do to get it off my public record.

Thanks, scientology.

NLP and Scientology

Hey guys,

I was a huge fan of NLP and have recently tried a bit of Dianetics auditing and found it to be less effective than Timeline Therapy and even simpler stuff like six-step reframing and a play with submodalities, etc.

So far I have read:

Dianetics - MSOMH (and the course with the church)
Scientology - 8-8008
Self Analysis
New Slant on Life
Fundamentals of Thought
Golden Age DVD's (all four) - the LRH snippets were pretty cool
The whole Bridge chart

And I do sense that I can benefit from getting to clear and get have a crack at OT levels, etc.

I've always been a big believer in the power of postulates and decisions - in self-determinism and constructive thinking and creativity - typically known in NLP to be GENERATIVE CHANGE.

I find Dianetics (and even Timeline Therapy in NLP) to be somewhat REMEDIAL CHANGE - but that's not to say that it's always either all - in fact, there's a bit of generative change and remedial change in pretty much every thing - they're just anchorpoints and semantics.

I wish to get some opinion on what you think about NLP compared with Scientology. I am particularly interested to hear opinions on those who have obtained "Clear" and OT Levels.

If you have been trained in NLP and Scientology, what are you thoughts on the differences of both?
Which tech within either one do you find more effective are realising choice?
What tech do you find more useful and effective?
What are you experience between Dianetics, NED and TimelineTherapy?
As you look through the times that you have made effective changes, what additional differences do you find significant between NLP and Scientology?

Has Scientology Taken Over the Police Dept in Rio de Janeiro?

That's the first question that came to mind upon reading this headline:

Rio Police Protest Lack of Salaries, Toilet Paper

It seemed kind of odd to me even when I was staff at Boston Org that we were on a mission to Clear the Planet, yet we had difficulty keeping the bathrooms stocked with toilet paper.

The fate of the entire universe for endless trillions of years depended upon us being successful, and we had the most powerful Admin Tech on the planet, yet we struggled to keep toilet paper in the bathrooms.

Playing in Plano

I still have friends in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.... one of them was at this event this weekend:

She told me the Sciobots were there with as she put it "there was a Scientology booth with people doing some type of hooky pookie. They had the participants holding onto two metal cylinder things. Looked ridiculous And they of course had Ron L. Hubbard books all over the place but under some other name and Scientology was not mentioned."

She laughed when I told her the two metal cylinder things were tin cans..... she did not go over and give them a hard time since she was at another booth... but she wanted to. She said wires were run from the metal things to some big hooky pookie equipment. Explained about the e-meter.... she got a kick out of that.

They are really knocking them dead in the Dallas area I tell ya.

But what’s especially exciting for Scientology watchers is that the same network is also developing another series, also about the way Scientology rips apart families, and this one is being produced by former Scientology celebrity Leah Remini. We broke the news in 2013 that Leah ditched Scientology, which she had grown up in. The King of Queens actress came out with a bestselling memoir last November, Troublemaker, with juicy anecdotes about what it was like to be a celebrity in a celebrity-obsessed church.

Hello from the Middle East

Hello everyone,

Here's a little introduction about who I am.

I live in Dubai (what I call Middle East 101) and have been here the last five years. Before that I lived in Johannesburg, South Africa, which is my home town.

I spent many years working in an international role for an IT company and spent a lot of time travelling about, trying to get people to "follow the strategy" - oh boy! what an exercise in futility :duh:. So, two and half years ago I quit with no forward plan but the definite knowledge that I was done with being cannon-fodder in the corporate battle. Since then, I have had the luxury of being supported by my husband while I have experimented with becoming a coach (turned out to be too flakey and new-agey / scam-like for me) and generally researching pretty much the entire conspiracy set of the modern and not so modern world. What a trip :shock:.

I want a new "thing" to focus my life around but am not sure what it is - I seem to have hidden it well from myself.

Aside from the work history, I have written one book of poetry (self-published) and another which is simply waiting for me to publish (I am 5 years slow on it). I'm currently researching the intersection of philosophy, physics and spiritual practice/religion as they converge on the topic of consciousness... with the hope of making some sense of it all so I can write a book which helps those raised in the neo-Darwinist reduction materialist cultural and educational context understand and access more easily the world of soul / spirit / beingness.

I was briefly involved in Co$ in Johannesburg. I did the Purif, Objectives and some repair auditing. I also did a a few Div 6 / public courses. They had me sign up for Foundation staff before they'd experienced my ridiculous travel schedule and I, being one who often agrees-because-it-is-easier-that-way, joined but then could not participate as expected. However, before that could turn into any kind of real drama, I started to experience some of the Co$ that I didn't like or want to be involved with:
(1) The endless events and fundraising for Ideal Orgs to the same tired huddle of public,
(2) the military dictator style command and control of the Sea Org,
(3) the strange paranoia of the Sec Checking in my auditing repairs.... sigh.
It was enough to make me begin to distance myself. I did it in a quiet way; :tiptoe: slowly and surely just dropping off and closing off from it all.

Since then I have had a couple of "Scientology offshoot" processing interventions - and some have worked better than others. Great were:
  • Spiritual Rescue Technology (SRT) from David St Lawrence and
  • Idenics from Annabel Bourgois who is a coach trained by Mike Goldstien

In my world-searching and soul-searching space of the last two years, I have come across quite a bit of info and material on Scientology across the web. Some interesting, some perplexing. I am still interested in Scientology and its offshoot methods.

If anyone here happens to be in Dubai, I would love to be in touch and share stories and a coffee.

There was some area that I didn’t fit into and I could never really grasp what it was. Friends would ask me to go and hang out with them only to have their parents call me to cancel.

“Spencer didn’t have my permission first,” one mother curtly informed me.

I didn’t get what it was about me that was unacceptable.

I also didn’t understand why we were expected to do so many things outside of the context of school. I was used to clubs and sports teams, but it was almost as if attending this school meant you were expected to focus your entire social life here. There were weekend parties that felt mandatory, and I remember one particularly odd moment where a black plastic trash bag full of shoes was sent from home to home for us to donate our shoes to.

MOGS: Machine Organized Gang Stalking

I came across this video posted on youtube by Jim N. E. Cricket.

I think most people here have been in Scientology and most have extracted themselves from it and their presence here is a testament to that, in most cases, that they left it behind.

However, there are those who, even though they left Scientology, experience the residual effects of having been in Scientology for periods of time after leaving.

These effects manifest themselves in aggravation that they still receive communication from the org or fear of retaliation from Scientology for leaving. Actual retaliation from Scientology in the form of disconnection, having protestors picket outside your house or work, receiving legal threats, Scientologists asking questions about you from your neighbors and telling your neighbors false information about you, etc.

Some just worry that these things will happen and others actually experience it. Some have had their careers ruined through black PR and others have eked out a living from this negative assault.

I personally know of some members who have been stalked by Scientology in one way or another.

I think most believe that now they have left Scientology that the ill effects of Scientology are left behind and can no longer affect them. They know there are other cults but the lessons learned from Scientology protects them from ever being affected by mind control or other groups seeking to take over and run their lives.

Some here have gotten over Scientology from immediately to shortly after leaving. Some have still not gotten over it and is a persistent nightmare in their lives but they are no longer directly affected by mind control and cults anymore.

Machine Organized Gang stalking may show you that mind control doesn't end by simply leaving cults. That cults, as they have existed, are just factions of a much larger mind control effort.

It may go to show you why there has never been a really serious effort by governments to bring it to an end. Even Senator Nick Xenophan's efforts, though noble and extensive, haven't put an end to Scientology in Australia. Rally cries against Scientology from government officials tend to die out and become historical but never really landmark results at reform or elimination of Scientology or cults.

That's because mind control is far more extensive than most realize. It is being implemented on a massive scale and comes in many forms that are highly effective.

This video will introduce you to what is being done.

The biography of Mary Sue Hubbard

Last month I was approached to work on Mary Sue's biography. Unlike my work on Yvonne Gillham Jentzsch's biography, where I had fantastic help from Yvonne's immediate family, I don't expect that same kind of help on Mary Sue's. You know, the old and highly popular Church of Scientology disconnection practice.

Despite that, I have been able to gather a bit about Mary Sue's early life. I found four pictures from her college days. Next up I put together clues from eight sources and made an argument that Mary Sue came to Wichita in June 1951. I have now positively identified not only when Mary Sue and Ron were married but where, a first such documentation that I know of.

New June 2016 Laws in Russia Bad for the Cult

Looks like the OSA peeps are about to have some more sleepless nights, if Putin signs off on all this.

Controversial Anti-Terrorism Laws Approved by Russian Duma

A controversial series of hard-hitting anti-terrorism laws was passed Friday by the Russian State Duma.

The changes to existing legislation will tighten restrictions on Russians suspected of committing terrorist and extremist activities.

. . .

The amendments must now be signed into law by Russian President Vladimir Putin.

I have no idea about Putin's position on all this, but I guess we will see soon enough.

For details that would seem to apply to the cult:

. . .

Now only special people in special places will be allowed to preach, and it will be illegal to preach certain ideas.

Lawmakers are also eager to place new restrictions on Russia's religious sphere, amending the legal definition of “missionary activity” as defined under the Constitution's article on the freedom of conscience and religion. Yarovaya's legislation defines as “missionary activity” any kind of religious practice that takes place outside special establishments, cemeteries, houses of worship, or religious schools. This applies to acts of worship, ceremonies, the distribution of literature, and preaching. “The dissemination of beliefs and religious convictions” through the mass media and the Internet is also considered to be “missionary activity.”

. . .

The human rights center “Sova” says the amendments to Russian laws about missionary work threaten not only unregistered religious groups, but also the organizations that are already registered (namely, churches belonging to Protestants and newer Christian sects). Even some Russian Orthodox missionaries could encounter problems, Sova warns.

I don't know how dissemination of ideas through the internet is supposed to be policed.

Quasi-Religious Rhetoric in Scientology and Heart of Darkness, by Ashley Anne Ullrich

Quasi-Religious Rhetoric in Scientology and Heart of Darkness, by Ashley Anne Ullrich.

This essay appears in Volume 5 (2013) of Brainstorm. Brainstorm is the Expository Writing Program's journal of student writing at the University of Oklahoma. I am going to excerpt a short portion from the middle of the eight page essay, as well as the conclusion, as teasers.

Quasi-Religious Rhetoric in Scientology and Heart of Darkness, by Ashley Anne Ullrich Religious Rhetoric.pdf

* * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

These dark motivations for a religion of greed are not entirely unprecedented. Hubbard’s religious pretext for the sake of personal income has a parallel in Joseph Conrad’s portrayal of the European colonists’ missionary greed in Heart of Darkness. The Europeans had come down to the Belgium Congo under the philanthropic pretext of spreading Christianity and modernizing the native population, but this farce masks the truth that they are only there to collect a profit from gathering Ivory. One of the most profitable of these immigrants is Kurtz, a man who has “collected, bartered, swindled, or stolen more ivory than all the other agents together” (Conrad 107). Ivory is the main conquest of most of the colonists who have flocked to the Congo, but for Kurtz, “that [ivory] was not the point” (Conrad 107). The point, Conrad shows us, is that Kurtz has this “gift of expression,” a presence of voice that entrances those around him, allowing him to manipulate others into following his cause. The ivory, like the religious pretense of the colonists, is only another pretext for a deeper motive. The power obtained by the manipulation of others is Kurtz’s true conquest.

* * * * * END EXCERPT * * * * *

* * * * * BEGIN CONCLUSION * * * * *

Scientology has been protested for many reasons: for being too much like a business, or a selfhelp scam, or oppressing its members. All of these reasons have merit, but one must remember that, as Marlow said of Kurtz’s ivory lust, “that was not the point” (Conrad 107). Looking past layer upon layer of abstractions of enlightenment and money, we can see an even darker inner truth that vies for absolute dominance over everything and everyone. Hubbard’s control maintains its hold over others even after his death. The idea of him is now an insatiable hunger that has been nourished to thrive without any earthly vessel. Hubbard, much like Kurtz, is now an idea that compels red-eyed and weak-eyed devils alike to pursue unobtainable goals they do not understand for rewards they can never secure. However, such a devilish compulsion is not only given birth by such characters as Hubbard and Kurtz. The inner truth is the monster that exists in all of humanity, compelling us forward without direction.

Purification RD (GAT-III) now for aging whales

[sarcasm on]

Purification RD (GAT-III) (TM) now available for aging whales

One important factor what keeps Co$ alive are the donations of the big whales. The only problem:
They get older and with time they die with the result that the donations .

With the shortly to be released Purification RD (GAT-III) (TM) this problem should be solved.

What will be new in Purification RD (GAT-III) (TM) ?

One of the important parts of the Purification RD (old version) was the use of Niacin (nicotinic acid).

Everyone who has ever seen El Con Hubbards messy handwriting will be able to understand that this cacography sometimes may lead to transcription errors especially when the transcribers a poorly paid and therefore hungry.

After extensive research it has been found that such an transcriptional error occured in the holy scriptures about the purification rundown (old version) leading to the result that the tech was not applied correctly. It has been found that where ever the term "Niacin" (nicotinic acid) was used it should have read: "NMN" (nicotinamide mono nucleotide).

During the extensive research done with original materials this flaw was found and handled so that the Purification RD (GAT-III) (TM) tech can be applied now properly leading to the result that the big whales are now able to donate.... and donate.... and donate.... and donate..... and donate more....

Here is the scientific proof of the workabilty of this recovered tech:
[sarcasm off]

1st 'true' anti-aging drug seeks human subjects

A promising compound which has been shown to significantly slow the aging process in mice might be tried on humans as early as next month, scientists say. If the trials work out well it would be the first genuine anti-aging drug to appear on the markets.

According to Japan News, Researchers at Keio University and Washington University in St. Louis are set to begin first clinical trials of the compound known as nicotinamide mono nucleotide (NMN), previously tested on mice.

NMN is a substance produced within the bodies of living things which may be also found in a variety of food products, such as milk.

Scientists believe in NMN’s potential to extend human life as experiments on mice showed that the compound has the ability to counter the declines in metabolism, eyesight and glucose intolerance which come into play as we get older. It was also found that the compound activated proteins called sirtuins, whose production decreases due to the aging process.
Yes you have read it correct: counter the declines in eyesight .... as promised 666 66 years ago in "Dianetics" by our master El Con the Con.

If you are a human subject able to make extensive donations (= "whale") visit your registrar today to make sure that you are one of the first to complete this milestone in recovered tech.

Initially he couldn't wrap his head around the mind-bending silliness of $cn. but over the time we've known each other he's come to have a pretty good understand of $cientology's bizarre world view.

Anyway, when I explained the bad press the kult has been getting lately and why they rushed BE out.... again. That was what he said. And I'll say it too. That was the best hey could come up with?

FSB conducts searches over case of Church of Scientology's illegal activity

FSB conducts searches over case of Church of Scientology's illegal activity

June 21, 2016 Interfax

The Russian Federal Security Service (FSB) confirmed that its officials have conducted a number of searches in Moscow, St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region as part of the investigation into the case of illegal business activities of the Church of Scientology.

"As part of the investigation of this case FSB officials conducted simultaneous searches at 14 premises in Moscow, St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region in offices, financial institutions and housing of alleged participants in illegal activity," the press service of the department of the Russian Federal Security Service for St. Petersburg and the Leningrad region said.

During the searches law enforcement officials seized items and documents proving the version of sales of goods and services provided by the organizers of the Church of Scientology of St. Petersburg in violation of statutory norms and indicating the inter-regional nature of these illegal activities, the department said.

If a court declares the scientologists' activities illegal, the organization will be evicted from the premises, Serov said.

Here is George Bailey - a Scientologist who went to the highest level of the Bridge: OAT TEA ATE. George Bailey actually did all of the "levels" and believes in the Xenu story.

George actually paid for and heard these confidential materials about the "Wall of Fire"

(hone in on what LRH says about "black people" LOL)

The side effects of "being Oat Tea" confronting and shattering suppression (he spent millions to obtain these super duper powers).

He is amongst the "elite" big beings who are clearing the planet of criminality and insanity...:whistling:

Here is Tony Holland from East Grinstead who just completed Oat Tea Ate.

Where did drive to clear planet & save humanity come from?

It was a goal driving many scientologist, but where does it come from?

Is it innately human or was it from LRH's god-like perception of himself?

It's not a storyline unique to Scientology though. For example movie Matrix, and TV series Heroes portray an awakening followed by saving mankind and the planet. While movie Fifth Element asks whether mankind is worthy of saving considering all it sins, such as war.

In other religions there is also an awakening like in buddhism but there is no talk of saving the world or anyone else, while in christianity there is always talk of being saved and coming of the second messiah.

what is it we all need saving from?

Looking for a new meter

Hi Everyone,

I'm new here, so, hope you're all well!

I'm from Melbourne, Australia and I'm looking to purchase a meter of some kind and I'm having a bit of trouble finding one. I've looked around online quite a bit and found a few Scientology Emeters on Ebay, but I kinda wanted to stay away from the COS version. A lot of the links I've found on my search are quite old, some of the websites they refer to being at least ten years old (with no signs of recent activity). The Mindwalker site, for example, has a few models on display, I sent them an email and never heard anything back - I'm figuring there's no-one on the other end.

Anyone know of current websites with various meters for purchase?

HowdyCon Photos

Text from Tony Ortega's blog - The Underground Bunker


HowdyCon is here

We’re going to do our best to keep the blog going as normal this weekend. In the comments, however, you may be seeing a lot of messages about something called “HowdyCon,” and so we thought some explanation was in order. Last year, while we were traveling around the country on a speaking tour to support our book The Unbreakable Miss Lovely, one of our readers asked, why are you visiting so many places? In response, we quipped that we would need to see what cities were like before choosing one for a convention.

We were joking, but that utterance took on a life of its own. Soon, readers had organized a vote to decide where to have a meetup, and Cleveland was chosen. So we’re having a small gathering there of about 50 folks who enjoy this website. We chose the name “HowdyCon” to honor a beloved commenter, Steven L. “Captain Howdy” Cox, who died on March 6, 2015. We’re also going to honor the memory of Mary Marinelli, known in the Bunker as “Sugarplumfairy,” who passed away on January 9.

We’ll be meeting very informally, with the main event being a dinner on Saturday night which will feature a special guest we’re looking forward to talking with. We’re sure the participants will keep you up on what’s going on.

Pics of the event that I uploaded to my Flickr account. Have fun viewing these!

Scientologist Dee Dee O'Malley song re patients who stop taking their antidepressants

Song by Scientology member Dee Dee O'Malley re patients who stop taking their prescribed antidepressant medication.

Tony Ortega and Rod Keller have the story.

Music on Soundcloud:

Ms. O'Malley says:
This is a very special song for anyone out there who has stopped taking anti-depressants prescribed by a psychiatrist. I admire anyone who has walked away from this. I know that it isn’t easy and if you have done it successfully, I am proud of you. This song is for you!

Sample lyrics:

One more dose comatose
I am not a body you can diagnose
I am strong I am free
There’s so much more to me than what you see

All lyrics available on Ms. O'Malley's Soudcloud page for the song.

Is the Scientology Personality Test Scientific?

Is the Scientology Personality Test Scientific?

The article is by Carrie Poppy, the co-host of the investigations podcast Oh No, Ross and Carrie.

CSICOP / Skeptical Inquirer: Is the Scientology Personality Test Scientific?

* * * * * BEGIN CONCLUSION * * * * *

The test itself appears to have no peer-reviewed research behind it, before or since its inception, and has been criticized widely by psychologists. In one UK government report titled “Enquiry into the Practice and Effects of Scientology” (or “The Foster Report” for short), Sir John Foster reveals that his researchers took the tests themselves, giving a variety of different answers, but that no matter how the test was taken, the results showed that the taker had personality traits that scored in the “unacceptable” field and needed to be fixed with Scientology classes.

In a similar but far more cheeky experiment, Dr. David Delvin took the same test but chose “Don’t know” as the answer to every single question. The Scientology representative administering the test not only did not notice, but returned with a printout with the same kinds of wild variations seen on all the others and recommended all sorts of classes specifically geared to his new pupil.

The Foster Report goes on that psychological professionals nearly universally reject or ignore the OCA, and that its lack of any scientific standing presents “an extremely strong case for assuming it to be a device of no worth.”1

The OCA appears to be nothing but an attempt to get recruits in the door, and promise them success with the smell of science to back it up. But you’re far more likely to find satisfaction in that online quiz we mentioned before. Personally, I think I’m a Phoebe.

How AO and ASHO got there

I was on lines in the early 1970 at ASHO when it was on Temple and AOLA was on Westlake. One day they had a sort of recruiting event, out front of AO and the moral, and inspirational message was how competent the Sea Org is, and that you should join up. And just how did they convey that message?

They told the story of how ASHO and AOLA came to be. Surprisingly, the story shared some entheta.

The featured SO Officer giving the speech, described how there was a flight to freedom. This was where they booked or chartered a jet, loaded it up with scientologists, and flew to Merry Ol England. The Brits, had a dim view of Scientology, and so, denied them entry. What to do - Hubbard sent down the order to AO Edinborough and to Saint Hill, that they each were send a team to the USA in Los Angeles and set up an AO and SH (Saint Hill) there. And - get this - they only had 3 days to do it in. Scientology put up the Scio's in some local hotel, and then planned on sending them to LA

So the mighty SO at Edinborough put together a mission and jetted to LA and started hunting for a suitable home near LA org which was on 8th street and Alvarado. They found a small apartment building on Westlake and set up house keeping. They were up and running when the flight landed at LAX.

But when the public arrived - they were in for a shock. The public wasn't ready for them. They needed to do R6EW, power, etc. What to do? The AO had CC and OT materials, but nothing below that. So they raided LAO's mimeo section and found they had enough tech stuff there to start delivering the solo course etc. There was any number of confidential materials in the mimeo files, so they started delivering.

I don't remember exactly how much later, maybe two weeks? that the SH team arrived to set up ASHO. See, the SH was non - SO in those days, so they weren't as on purpose as the SO was ( remember the first paragraph?) so they just weren't able enough to make good on LRH's orders.

So, what to do? Since the weather was nice, they ran ASHO on LA Orgs porch while they looked for a suitable building, which they found on Temple Street. Then they moved every body there and began delivering services.

So, Boys and Girls! Do you want to become a competent, make it go right person, or just sort of limp along in life? If it's the former, you should see the friendly SO recruiter and sigh up with the winning team!

What else is there to do that is worthwhile for the next billion years?

Is John Travolta No Longer in Good Standing with COS???

I've just been reading the deluge of cult reviews on Amazon about Battlefield Earth as well as writing my own reviews. Five stars from all the culties, you know, all over a few days. :eyeroll: Quite a few comments look identical, even more look like they never read the book.

That aside, I was shocked to see dozens of comments by scientologists blaming John Travolta for the Battlefield Earth movie turning out to be such a bomb! Seriously? He was at the height of his career at the time and probably the only reason anyone ever bought a single ticket to it.

It looks like he's been fair-gamed.

Anyone know more about this? Comments, thoughts?
Is John Travolta No Longer in Good Standing with COS???

OSA staff member featured on Tony Ortega

Yep The old lady who was featured in the video - my old Briefing course sup from the 70's, Sheila Bakker engendered a lot of wonderful comments today as she was out there shattering suppression at the Battle Field Earth re-release. Karen says she was married to Ira Chalif, I guess after she divorced Bakker? Not sure. However, she was doing her OSA thang - and making everybody's day. Go OSA!

Let us travel back in time to when ASHO was on Temple street across from the famous Rampart police HQ. The BC was held in this large room and she sat at the end where she, as the lead sup, could keep an eye on all of us. I think it was a graduation, or something or other, and she related this groovy story to her class of BC students:

She was sitting down one time when she went exterior - she floated up out of her body - up into the clear blue sky. It was all peaceful and pretty blue and quiet. Suddenly there was all this racket, people talking, etc. and then she saw this jet receding in the distance. It had flown through where she was hovering high above the ground.

Hi Shelia! I really loved your story - I have never forgotten it. So nifty. What ever happened to that charming girl I once knew?

Thanks Tony - I loved seeing her picture from back in the day.

Atkinson-Baker claims the L. Ron Hubbard management and administrative systems it uses are "non-religious," while the Church of Scientology asserts the fixed contributions (i.e., payments) for training in such L. Ron Hubbard management and administrative systems are tax-deducible.

Thank you for expressing an interest in working for our company. As you may know, in order to assist us in running a smooth and cohesive company, we apply the management, administrative and business ethics systems developed by American philosopher L. Ron Hubbard. These administrative systems deal with business topics such as communication, organization, administration, marketing, promotion, business ethics and finance. While Mr. Hubbard is the founder of the Scientology religion, these management and administrative systems are non-religious and can be used by anyone without a requirement that the person change his or her religious or other beliefs. Indeed, the company is an equal opportunity employer and does not discriminate in hiring or the terms and conditions of employment based on a person’s race, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, or other characteristic protected by applicable law.

And, of course we all know this is nothing new for Atkinson-Baker, a Scientology-linked company:

That tends to happen when your name is Atkinson-Baker and your company is owned/run by longtime Atkinson-Baker Scientology whales.

$IDE EFFECT$: Scientology "tech" trickling into Business & Governments

When I was in Scientology, towards the end of my involvement, I noticed similarities regarding unfair exchange, bamboozling tactics to get money on account, buying buildings when current "business" is flailing... between $cientology, Businesses and Govenments.

The Scam Tech that L Ron Hubbard copied from other "scams and cons" had infiltrated our Society and I was convinced (even when I was in) and am now completely convinced, beyond any doubt, that Scientology's Tech has some responsibility for the "group think" in these businesses and Governments.

The similarities is where more money is charged than value of product or service and deceit and dishonesty are used to "sell" and rope in. EXPANSION is all that Scientology thinks about....and they cannabalize their members to financial ruin them with no regard for the condition they are left in.

This CONNING and SCAMMING pertains to the many American Companies that TAKE more than they give, charged money UP FRONT before the product or service is rendered and make it extremely difficult to get your money back because you had to sign a long, complicated legal document without any legal advice.

Post here anything you noticed in our Civilization around the Globe where the "tech" (manipulating people for $money, signing legal documents without legal advice from an experienced team of attorneys, paying up front BEFORE services or products are given and unfair exchange). This also pertains to Governments.

If you can - couple the scam, con or dishonest dealings with L Ron Hubbard's TECH.

Financial Review: Scientologist ethos used to train NSG financial planners to sell life insurance

by Sally Rose

A Melbourne-based financial planning group targeted by the regulator in a landmark court case used the teachings of Church of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard as part of its staff training, a former employee has claimed.

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) last week filed civil action against NSG Services, formerly trading as National Sterling Group. ASIC alleges the firm failed to properly train its staff and acted in a way that was not in its clients best interests, including pushing unnecessary life insurance products.

"The facilitator told us the training was based on the teachings of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard but that the business wasn't associated with Scientology, it just liked the philosophy," said former National Sterling trainee Dylan Romano.

I'm a third generation Scientologist, but since I did my purif two years ago I haven't had any desire to continue. I just recently watched Going Clear, and I don't know what to think. This is my first time on a site like this. Part of me wants to run back to the church and hide and the other side is just scared.

I don't have anyone I can talk to about this that would understand and I am really just looking for guidance.

Project to bring Stop Scientology Disconnection Billboard to Clearwater, FL

Project to bring Stop Scientology Disconnection Billboard to Clearwater, FL.

Tony Ortega has the story.

BILLBOARD 2.0 — Phil and Willie Jones set their sights on Scientology’s mecca in Florida

* * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

Fresh off of their media conquest in Los Angeles, former Scientologists Phil and Willie Jones have a new target for their bright idea to highlight Scientology’s toxic “disconnection” policy with a prominent billboard near a major church center.

In April, the couple paid for a billboard in the Echo Park neighborhood of L.A. after crowdfunding about $12,000, in large part with the help of the readers of this website. The billboard had a positive message rather than a critical one, asking members of Scientology to call their loved ones. It also provided a link to a website that explained how the church splits up families by enforcing disconnection.

It’s disconnection that keeps Phil and Willie from seeing their own two grown children, Emily and Mike, who are both workers in Scientology’s “Sea Organization,” which asks its members to sign billion-year contracts and work for pennies an hour.

Phil and Willie, who live in Las Vegas, chose Los Angeles for the “Call Me” billboard because that’s where their children work for the church. But now, they’ve decided to raise funds for a second billboard in Clearwater, Florida, another major center for Scientology with a large concentration of Sea Org workers.

“Willie and I lived in Clearwater for about 26 years,” Phil tells us. “It’s considered the spiritual center for Scientology, and those who are going up the Scientology ‘Bridge’ will eventually go there. For a small town Scientology owns a larger percentage of property there than any other city or town in the world. Clearwater is where our daughter first joined the Sea Org.”

Phil says he’s attempting to raise $5,400 at a donation page in order to make the Florida billboard a reality. In the meantime, he let us know that the Echo Park billboard in Los Angeles is currently down, but he says his goal is to get both billboards — in Los Angeles and Clearwater — up at the same time next month.

The Los Angeles billboard, which had been up since April 4, came down about two weeks ago because of a small snafu in making a payment on time. But there are funds already in place to keep it going, so it will be going back up in July, Willie says.

And he’s aiming to get the new billboard, in Clearwater, unveiled on the same day that the L.A. billboard reappears.

* * * * * END EXCERPT * * * * *

Cleawater "Call Me" Billboard

* * * * * BEGIN INTRODUCTION * * * * *

After the great success with the billboard we put up in Los Angeles we heard from many people in Clearwater, FL who had been affected by Scientology disconnection and would like to see one there.

The goal for now is to get enough to pay for the printing and the first month. Any additional money we get will go to additional months of keeping the billboard up.

Gawker: Nevada Senate Candidate Accidentally Owns Opponent With Link to

Andy Cush

Today 10:45am


Sharron Angle, a Republican running for U.S. Senate in Nevada this year, put a sick and very graphic burn on her opponent, Joe Heck, in a newsletter sent to voters this month. That’s because a URL that one might think leads to Mr. Heck’s campaign site instead redirects you to a page that, as far as I can tell, has very little to do with the three-term congressman’s pro-business conservative platform.

The mailer, which also appeared online, listed Heck’s website as In fact, his website is (The online version has since been corrected.) The former URL, for some reason, redirects to, a website that features—you guessed it—images of cartoons having sex with each other, and is obviously NSFW.

According to Whois information, was registered by a person named John Rashad, who has no apparent connection to either the Angle or the Heck campaigns. Speaking with Talking Points Memo, an Angle spokesman chalked the snafu up to a printing error, and stated that the “Angle campaign has, in no way, promoted the website.”

Heck’s campaign, however, is dubious. “The Sharron Angle campaign has been spreading misinformation to voters and unfortunately this is the latest, ridiculous, dirty trick,” a spokesperson told TPM.

The Scientology-Based "Re-Education" Program for American Prisoners

The Scientology-Based "Re-Education" Program for American Prisoners.

The Influence: The Scientology-Based "Re-Education" Program for American Prisoners, Sponsored by Goldman Sachs

* * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

A few years ago, Abe Bergman’s 19-year-old son was court-ordered into a residential treatment program in Washington State for co-occurring mental illness and “substance abuse.” After he’d been in the program about a week, Bergman called and asked: “Can I come visit my son?”

The person he spoke to, a counselor, said: “No, he hasn’t earned enough points yet.”

“I thought,” Bergman says, “with someone with mental illness, wouldn’t it be good to have their family there? They said, ‘No. We run something call Moral Reconation Therapy here.’”

Bergman, a retired pediatrician and faculty member at the University of Washington, never was able to visit his son. He wondered, what was this mysterious-sounding “Moral Reconation Therapy” (MRT)? The term bugged him. It sounded like “trying to invent new words that don’t mean anything, but imply a certain specialness.”

So he talked to “six or seven mental health professionals—psychiatrists.” He asked them, “Do you know about MRT?”

None of them did.

He called the person who then ran the mental health office for Washington State. They’d never heard of it.

Finally, he talked to someone who worked in the criminal justice system. They’d heard of it, because MRT is used widely—according to the website of Correctional Counseling, the company that promotes and sells MRT—“in parole and probation, with juvenile offenders, in schools, halfway houses, drug treatment programs, jails, and venues covering the entire range of corrections.” It can also be employed “anywhere there’s substance abuse,” as someone associated with the program, who didn’t want their name used, told me.

In fact, according to the website, it is the primary drug treatment used in the US criminal justice system. MRT is used in all 50 states, and in six other countries besides the US. It’s on SAMHSA’s (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration) National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices, which helps states, community-based organizations and others identify recommended service models.

John D. Berg, M.Ed., LCPC, is a public health advisor with the criminal justice team at SAMHSA. He says that MRT is “one of the most commonly used [treatments] within drug courts because it fits well with criminal justice-involved clients we serve.”

Correctional Counseling says that its treatment has been administered to more than 1 million “offenders.”

So what is Moral Reconation Therapy? And why has no one outside of the prison system heard of it?

* * * * * END EXCERPT * * * * *

* * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *

Semantics and Scientology

When I put to multiple people associated with Moral Reconation Therapy that people might balk at equating morals with laws, with teaching “morality” as a therapeutic treatment, they explained that the “moral” in MRT actually comes from Lawrence Kohlberg’s theory of six stages of moral development. On their website, the authors state, as if anticipating this concern: “In this case, ‘moral’ does not refer to a religious concept, but rather the theoretical conceptualization of psychologist Lawrence Kohlberg.” In their workbook, the authors say that they draw on the work of Kohlberg, as well as a range of other well-known theorists like Carl Jung, Erik Erikson and Jean Piaget.

MRT has, depending on interpretation (some stages incorporate sub-stages), nine-to-16 levels of morality, ranging from “Disloyalty,” the lowest, to “Grace” (the highest). These stages—which don’t appear to share anything in common with Kohlberg’s stages (more on that soon)—make up the “MRT Freedom Ladder.”

What about the made-up-sounding word “Reconation”? Little and Robinson write:

“Prior to common usage of the term ‘ego’ in psychology in the 1930s, the term ‘conation’ was employed to describe the conscious process of decision-making and purposeful behavior. The term moral reconation was chosen … because the underlying goal was to change conscious decision-making to higher levels of moral reasoning.” Conation is in the Merriam-Webster dictionary as “an inclination (as an instinct, a drive, a wish, or a craving) to act purposefully.” Reconation is not in the dictionary.

There’s also something in MRT’s requirement of the acceptance of personal transgressions that is reminiscent of the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. I asked Influence columnist Maia Szalavitz, a journalist with decades’ experience covering subjects like mental health, addiction and addiction treatment, for her thoughts on MRT: It “shares all the negative results that people can get from 12-step programs in terms of moralizing,” she told me. “We don’t tell people with actual diseases that it is caused by their sinful nature—yet the implications in MRT seem to be that you chose to be a criminal, and it was your thinking that was wrong, and society was completely blameless. Trauma has nothing to do with it. It really cannot possibly be trauma-sensitive. Right there is a huge problem.”

MRT’s creators are adamant that their program is quite distinct from 12-step programs, though (and the similarities are not pervasive). They prefer to consider MRT “evidence-based” and a “cognitive-behavioral” treatment.

Instead of associating themselves with the 12-step movement, in the acknowledgments section of How to Escape Your Prison, Little and Robinson credit a man named Ron Smothermon with giving them the names and framework for the stages on the Freedom Ladder. Smothermon appears in online searches as a kind of self-help guru, author of texts such as Winning through Enlightenment, The Man-Woman Book and Conversations With Life.

He seems to have some associations with cult-like movements, particularly EST (Erhard Seminars Training), a self-help program trendy in the ’70s, and its repackaged descendent, the Forum (which was succeeded by Landmark, a more mainstream management training program, which today has clients like Reebok, Microsoft, NASA and Lululemon).

When the word “Scientology” began cropping up in my searches in connection with Smothermon, I delved deeper, and suddenly noticed a shocking similarity, one that was clearly not coincidental: MRT’s Freedom Ladder is an almost direct replica of Scientology’s “Life Conditions.”

Both include the stages, in the same descending order, of: “Normal,” “Emergency,” “Danger,” and “Non-Existence.” Then, Scientology has “Liability, while MRT has “Injury;” Scientology has “Doubt” while MRT has “Uncertainty;” and last, Scientology has “Treason” where MRT has “Disloyalty.”

The Scientology Handbook
says that the “conditions” are “states of existence.” There is something called the “ethics conditions” which “identify these states and provide formulas—exact steps which one can use to move from one condition to another higher and more survival condition.”

“Ethics is the means by which he can raise himself to a higher condition and improve his survival.”

Then the handbook gets into some intricate graphing—apparently you can graph your “statistics” to see what “condition” you are in—and takes off into some nonsensical but pithy warnings, like: “Correct scaling is the essence of good graphing” and “The element of hope can enter too strongly into a graph.”

MRT, thankfully, doesn’t seem to have incorporated the “statistics” component of Scientology’s “conditions” into its “Freedom Ladder.”

There’s a lot from Scientology it seems to have left behind. And overall, MRT seems less like a part of some nefarious Scientology plot to infiltrate the prison system, more a mish-mash of psychobabble picked haphazardly from 1970s self-actualization talk, Christianity, AA and yes, Scientology.

Dean Wilbur Conversation vs Hubbard Communication TR's

I got involved with scientology by reading dianetics. Many others got started by doing the "Communications Course", I never did that course nor the newer "Success Through Communication" course although I have done many, many hours of the TR's and the Pro TR's course all of which are to improve communication skills.

We all know the COS likes to toot it's horn scientology is about improving communication skills.

Hubbard took a course in GWU college called English Rhetoric by Dean Wilbur. Wilbur wrote the book. Hubbard wrote a letter to Wilbur in 1936 after he left GWU praising Wilbur on his book and as a teacher. Hubbard said he used his book after college. The letter can be found on the BIC website and the official COS website.

There is a section in the book called Conversation, several pages, here are two of them. It's an interesting read and I wish to share it and allow others to compare what Wilbur says vs what scientologists are taught. In reading Wilbur, I wish I would have learned what he wrote as opposed to spending many, many hours doing the TR's and listening/reading to Hubbard.

New Independent Scientology Organization: Observation Mountain Academy.

Or at least new to me. I am posting this because today I saw a Success Story from Observation Mountain Academy on Milestone Two, which both brought the Academy to my attention and provided evidence that it is, in fact, functioning.

Observation Mountain Academy

We are definitely NOT affiliated with the Church of Scientology, but we are fans of the writings of L. Ron Hubbard. An awful lot of what he wrote is just, in our opinion, common sense. It's also been grossly and widely misunderstood and misrepresented, misinterpreted and misapplied, misquoted and even re-written. All we're doing is trying to present a few of the very basic tools Hubbard came up with, taken from some of his original writings that we're pretty sure no one has altered, tools that each of us here at our humble "academy" have used in our own lives and have found to be quite helpful. None of us claims to be an expert in any of this. We're just sharing a few things we've found workable.

Observation Mountain overlooks the town of Grand Forks, B.C. It was officially named in 1860 by Boundary Commission surveyors as they used the site to set up their survey instruments. This area is called Boundary country because it runs along the border between Canada and the United States. Grand Forks is within minutes of two border crossings.

Observation Mountain Academy is here to help people handle life's problems through Training and Counselling all based on the works of L Ron Hubbard

Dave Soroka - Course Supervisor

Contact Dave []

I did my MCSC in Toronto under Marc Vallier in 1981, and I sup’d the VanF Academy for a couple of years. I was the first sup in the history of VanF to actually make a Class 4 auditor, and I made several. I also sup’d the ASHO Day Qual Internship for a few months, took it from Non-E to Affluence, then left and went into the Crusade as a “celeb”.

If there’s a “secret” to supervising, well I’d say it’s just caring about the student in front of you. I mean, your intention has to be to see your students win. I mean, sup the students in front of you and don’t worry about those who aren’t. If you run a proper course, the courseroom will fill up by itself. Like magic. Only my opinion, but backed, I believe, by the old man, who did the research.

Nora Curiston

Contact Nora []

Nora Curiston trained as a course supervisor in the early 1970’s and spent several years as Basic Courses Sup which, back then, meant suping the HAS (Hubbard Apprentice Scientologist) and the HQS (Hubbard Qualified Scientologist) courses. These two courses are magic. They contain basic information and drills that graduates can use daily in their lives. They are also a wonderful introduction to auditing – both giving and receiving.

Nora is currently holding the hat of ‘jack of all trades’ at Observation Mountain Academy and has earned the nickname “Miss Bossy Pants”.

Her philosophy is that if the pants fit, she’ll wear them!

As a newly independent Scientologist Nora is interested in helping others achieve Bridge progress in the field. The wins out here are wonderful and the air fragrant with the knowledge that the Bridge is here for all who desire it.

Coyote - Our Honorary Ethics Officer

Contact Coyote [] He has a Great Ethics Program

He might seem a little unorthdox but he really likes working with people.

His Bio

This guy had a rough start to life and was rescued from death row at the age of only 10 months. He learned his most important lessons on the subject of Ethics out on the water, floating the Kettle River on a rubber dinghy as a young dog, observing the survival dynamics of groups large and small, and taking careful note of what it took to get from launch to landing with everybody safe and happy. Now, in his golden years, he is our guide, our survival guru here at the Academy. This is a guy you want to see when the “sailing gets rough”.
