Pleeeeeease Come Back…

suckers

With a special offer like this -- a FREE 6 month membership (that anyone gets just for turning over their name and email address) -- how could you resist? But you have to get in NOW because this "offer" only lasts until 31 December. At that point they will send out a "new" offer of a free 6 month membership. Even something as stupid as this has to be a lie. But of course, this IS "the most successful and effective group in the world." Also the most modest. And honest. One thing that IS interesting is that it proves they have records of EVERYONE, and pretty accurate ones. This … [Read more...]

No Shame

IAS Year End Promo Card front

The US Government is despised and derided by scientology, with numerous L. Ron Hubbard writings and lectures mentioning the US Government, many government agencies and even Presidents in less than flattering terms. There are very few positive statements about any person or any part of the US government anywhere in the "scriptures" of scientology. The most consistent vehemence is directed towards the FBI and the IRS. But then it comes time to pitch how they will help raise money for the IAS, suddenly, Old Glory is fluttering in the breeze with the IAS logo imprinted on top of it. Now they … [Read more...]

Blathering Shermanspeak From The Most Important Man In The Room

ronburgundy

This is the closing address from David Miscavige at the last IAS event, now transcribed and preserved for eternity as all pronouncements from Dear Leader must be. He is becoming a parody of himself -- and the speed of his descent into a character right out of a "Funny or Die" skit or the next Will Farrell movie appears to be accelerating. Even the photos he is selecting for photoshopping are getting stranger. He has almost perfected the Ron Burgundy sneer of superiority. Either those gold buttons are getting bigger or he is shrinking.... A few memorable shermanspeak diamonds in … [Read more...]

IAS Fraud

bait_and_switch_352931472

Here is a fabulous sounding quote the IAS is using to convince the sheeple "LRH wanted them to give their money to the IAS." These people will stop at nothing to vacuum money from the gullible. LRH knew NOTHING about the IAS. It was an accounting creation in 1984 to keep money away from the IRS. By the time of his death in 1986 it still wasn't really public. And he certainly didn't write anything about it. So what IS this quote about and where does it come from? You probably would not be surprised to learn that it is taken from something LRH wrote about fees for ORG SERVICES … [Read more...]

The 30th Anniversary IAS Event

trainwreck02

We have already reported about the downgrade of the IAS Event - see The IAS Event Is Already A Bomb from 8 October. It is one thing to downgrade the 30th Anniversary of the IAS celebration to the parking lot on LRH Way, but its a total train wreck when the Flag event is suffering a similar, even more ignoble downsizing. They are not going to be holding this event at the Ruth Eckerd Hall but instead at the Fort Harrison.... The Auditorium there holds 1500 people. They claim to have more STAFF than this and "2000 people from out of town on service at any given time" PLUS 12,000 … [Read more...]

We Are Filming The Procession

IAS SHORT

Hahaha. They just raised the quota from 7,000 to 10,000 because Dear Leader pr0nounced that 10,000 should be in attendance. So, whether there are 500 or 5,000 people that show up (they are being HEAVILY pushed from ALL OVER THE WORLD to attend) it will "officially" be 10,000 in attendance. They will stage a bunch of shots as usual where the frame is filled with bodies and you cannot see the surroundings so there is no way of telling how many there are.  But they will assert the shots are "proof" of the massive attendance for the monumental event. It is really crass that they even … [Read more...]

The IAS Event Is Already A Bomb

bomb

Wow, there are seismic upheavals going on in LA on every front. They have now downgraded the annual IAS event from the Shrine to the Bonaventure to L. Ron Hubbard Way? Too cheap to pay for a hall at all now?  Afraid there won't be enough people show up to even fill up the Bonaventure? Yet look at the description of this event that follows the "Monumental Advance" poster.... THIS IS THE BIGGEST EVENT IN IAS HISTORY! (where have I heard that before?) ...something is being presented at this event that is SO big, it will change our lives, personally. This is not hype. … [Read more...]

Two More IAS Shills

IMPACT 2 SHORT

Didn't L. Ron Hubbard say that auditors are the most valuable beings on the planet? So, why would an "on Source" scientologist who spent years training through CLASS VIII, be a full time reg for the IAS rather than a full time auditor? Does Kathy Feshbach have disagreements with LRH? These are the final two pages of the latest Impact magazine:   And Kaye Champagne has clearly found a more lucrative job than selling rugs. Fundraising for "Ideal Orgs" and IAS.  Doesn't anyone notice her pitch is about "planetary clearing" and that has absolutely nothing to do with the … [Read more...]

The Miscavige IAS Scam Rolls On

swear-to-spin-the-truth_resize

The latest edition of Impact magazine has been mailed out. It is a recounting of the magnificent IAS evening aboard the Freewinds. Of course, it highlights "Mr. David Miscavige" though these days they don't bother with identifying him in the 7 full page photoshopped pix featuring his new thin look. The weight of the world seems to be resting upon his shoulders and it is showing. This was a veritable shermanspeak orgy, and while I am not going to recount everything here, I am including his opening and closing statements for your reading pleasure (amazement?). If you cannot read these, … [Read more...]

Greg Capazorio IAS Shill

capazorio head shot

Greg Capazorio was awarded an IAS Freedom Medal with a stirring video concocted by the Sherminator that made it seem that the Way To Happiness Campaign was integrated across the entire Gauteng Prison system in South Africa. Of course, as with most of these videos, it was, to put it kindly, a bit of an overstatement. To be accurate about it, it was more like a 90% fabrication. Some South African friends told me Capazorio was not even the primary mover for what was done (there was some WTH distribution and use). Perhaps one or more of them can enlighten us a little in the comments. And I … [Read more...]
