Another One Bites The Dust

closed forever

In the era of massive, straight up and vertical, 47X expansion in the wake of GAGII one could be forgiven for assuming that this would be most evident in the LA area -- "home to the largest population of scientologists on earth" according to the infallible pronouncements of Dear Leader. One might also assume that the boom is happening at the bottom of the Bridge with the massive international dissemination campaigns "sponsored by the IAS" and the enormous international dissemination center right there in LA, alongside the largest digital printing plant on earth at Bridge Publications and … [Read more...]

Why Ideal Orgs?

how-to-lie-with-statistics

Any time there is a post about ideal org failures, there is a lot of speculation about "Why?" I have written various posts and comments about this from time to time, but realized I had never put it all in one place. There are two reasons for the ideal org program that go hand in hand. And it explains why, in spite of the clear failure of this program to bring about planetary clearing, or anything at all aligned with the "Aims of Scientology," it will continue to be pushed until the very end. 1. It is vital for Miscavige to hold onto his position 2. IRS concerns But before … [Read more...]

More Ideal Org Fails

incompetence

Following up on the recent post about Orlando some Special Correspondents sent in some information about other "ideal orgs" which I thought I would share. Boston The Boston Org has now had to move out of the building they have occupied for decades and into rented facilities because in typical "ideal org style" they completely screwed up their planning. A lot of money was spent to renovate the "old" org building and it was one of the nicest scientology orgs on earth location and building wise (not counting the marble palaces of late).  Then the "ideal org" madness set in. To make a … [Read more...]

Orlando Magic

MagiciansHat

  No wonder the "ideal org" in Orlando never gets mentioned even though it is BY FAR the closest org to Flag and Tampa -- both of whom are busily trying to raise funds for Miami and Atlanta. This is Orlando's "ideal org" website, last updated sometime in 2011, though they seem to have an automatic counter that adds a day from "Ideal Orgs Seminar 2011."     They got a "building approved" -- hooray for us! An instant "ideal org" -- plucked right out of a hat. Amazing. It truly represents Miscavige's ideal org tag-line "just add water and mix." It looks … [Read more...]

Blowing Smoke Up Valley’s Ass

blow moke

Oh, the "impacting force" of it all... This document, though Quinn the Eskimo apparently doesn't realize it, is a scathing indictment of the scam that is the "ideal org" program. The building was purchased in April 2009. That is more than 5 years ago. Yet this is the highest priority, most urgent thing in the world of scientology. This is, according to Quinn, one of the most important "ideal" orgs on earth, just a couple of miles down the freeway from CSI, ASI, CC, PAC Bridge and Bridge Publications. This urgent, highest priority program that is so important to clearing earth, just … [Read more...]

Thursday Funnies

lets boogie

Please, please, please come in. Pretty please. They will resort to anything to try and get people to come into their idle morgues.... Really? The Wobble. Cupid Shuffle. Teaching poker "moves"? Just like Ron says.   Scientology v. Dudeism A Special Correspondent sent this in to me, she thought it was amusing, and so do I. Anyone who has ever seen The Big Lebowski will get the joke, but whether you have or haven't, the comparison to the scientology facebook page is pretty funny. Let's not forget church of scientology is on the "cutting edge of internet dissemination" … [Read more...]

Ideal Org “Successes” A Work In Progress

i never finish

Apparently these "ideal" orgs don't have anyone actually completing anything to give "success stories" so they resort to getting (and publishing) "successes" from people "in progress" on services. This is the best they can come up with? A further indictment of the complete failure of the "ideal org" program and GAG II.   … [Read more...]

Portland Ideal Org Is Pathetic

emerald-city-tom-zukauskas2

Below is the real "ideal org" in the "first clear city", Portland. We have earlier reported on the sad state of this org (see here, here and here) -- even though it is used as an "example" of how things "boom" in ALL "ideal orgs" the minute their doors swing open. A fairy tale to match the Wizard of Oz, and in many ways the analogy is apt. What you see is their OWN promotion. Proudly announcing that ALL their "most Dauntless, Defiant and Resolute IAS Supporters" were in attendance. It's THEIR shots, the best they have, not someone sneaking in for a "gotcha moment" that was taken during a … [Read more...]

The Most Deluded Valley Competition

valley-letter

The two "Valley" orgs seem to be competing for the title of "Most Deluded Valley": Silicon opens the bidding with an announcement that on 2 August, THEY will be announcing the beginning of world clearing. Wonder what all those other orgs that are telling people that they ARE Clearing the Planet think about this? Isn't every "ideal org" already clearing the planet for real? And so is Flag with Sooper Power.... These guys are a day (decade?) late and a lot of dollars short. But running neck and neck with them in the crazy stakes is the "valley girls" Valley: These guys have a … [Read more...]

LA Org Is Going St Hill Size. Again.

Groundhog Day -- theme movie of corporate scientology

    In keeping with the theme of do and redo that permeates the world of corporate scientology, LA Org ED's are shouting from the rooftops that they are "going St Hill Size"? They have apparently (and conveniently) forgotten they did this already, back in the 90's, and with much ballyhoo. And that they sold people on joining to "get their OT levels" because they are St Hill Size and "per 339R we have a Universe Corps" (even though they never had one). So typical of Kool Aid drinkers. They have selective memory. This announcement is as silly as Obama holding a press … [Read more...]
