Lights Out At Jobur Org

JOHANNESBURG

Here is another chapter in the sad tale of the demise of Jobur Ideal Org. To begin, let me remind you that this is the second "ideal org." Dear Leader himself made the long trip to bless the "new org" and in finest shermanspeak, pronounced this the beginning of the new age in Africa and THE thing that would make S. Africa the first cleared country.  And the goodness would spread from there and overtake the entire continent. Of course, no such thing happened and Jobur has struggled since. So much so that a Sea Org "Command Team" was dispatched to get things back "under control."  They rolled … [Read more...]

It’s ALL About The Money.

dollar

Here is yet ANOTHER "seminar" on making money pushed by the "church" of scientology. It's thrust upon the world by the "Senior Administrative Consultant" (whatever that is?) of the "new" LA Org. Obviously a Sea Org member, as everyone in LA Org is now SO, which makes this guy an expert on money -- he rakes in and manages an annual income of $2500 in a good year. Of course, what would a scientology promotional piece be without a glaring typo -- commonly in the headline as here (also check out the copyright notice). For good measure, and just to reinforce the point, though in point … [Read more...]

“Ideal Orgs” — Baffle Them With BS

TomJ2 - Copy

Tony Ortega already included a bunch of this series of posters in his Sunday Funnies last week -- but he left some out (there are 13 of them in total). Two I felt were important as they highlight points made by David Miscavige where he sold the brilliance of his "ideal org" strategy. Just think about this for a second. This is taken from the original Miscavige sales pitch on "why ideal orgs?" But it makes absolutely NO sense. He had used the analogy of an auditing session to sell the original GAT and how you could not deliver a standard session unless you had all the elements … [Read more...]

Scientology Fundraising Techniques Part 3

Griffon_Vulture_4

More of the church documents that describe how they go about parting the pocketbooks from their parishioners. (Part 1 here, Part 2 here) This one is from Craig Jensen and it describes in detail the lengths to which these events go to squeeze every last dollar they can out of the attendees.... Nothing really new here, but Jensen manipulating the crowd by doling out his $100,000 ("strategically") at various times to goad others into giving money is a "shame game" that is pretty repulsive. Reading this is like reading a write up produced by Reed Slatkin or some scam artist that sells … [Read more...]

Portland “Ideal Org” Isn’t Clearing Anyone, Let Alone Portland

shoot in foot

Here is the latest scientology footbullet. People from Portland "Ideal Org" are required to travel to Sacramento to attest to Clear. Which probably also means Seattle isn't clearing anyone either, as that is closer to Portland than Sacramento. And apparently Sacramento wants the world to know their ideal neighbor to the north is merely a feeder for their "big brother" in California's capital. They don't just announce a Clear, they headline it with how he traveled from Portland. Not very considerate, showing up your fellow org as liars and failures. It's like a public Knowledge … [Read more...]

AOLA Completions — Not So Much

no-hope--large-msg-132175017292

This is the completions page from the latest Advance Magazine. Though this is the IDEAL PACIFICA BRIDGE and David Miscavige made much of how people are "flooding up the bridge in record numbers", you can see for yourself what is really going on in this "ideal" AO. Of course, they never make clear what period these stats cover, but based on other mags, this is likely 3 months worth at least. And it exposes the reality of people "Flooding up the bridge to OT" for the world to see. AOLA had EIGHT Solo II completions. That is the exact measurement of how many people are "flooding up … [Read more...]

Ideal Production

Van Gogh may have had ideal orgs in mind....

Here are the pages of completions from the latest magazine of the Pasadena Org. Of course, this is one the orgs that is "Clearing LA" and making "Planetary Clearing A Reality." But somehow, like EVERY OTHER ORG ON EARTH, the straight up and vertical 47X expansion ushered in with GAG II, thanks to the brilliance of Chairman of Board, David Miscavige, seems to be bypassing them. Get ready to be overwhelmed with the massive production (who knows how long this covers, probably a few months based on other completions lists that are published): FROM THE HGC: A SINGLE GRADE ONE … [Read more...]

The Ideal CLO EU

bulshit

  Here is the hype from scientology.org about the wondrous launch of the "future of scientology" in the "European Commonwealth." Somehow there is no mention of the size of the crowd (I wonder why?) But there is plenty of Shermanspeak hype to keep the clubbed seals clapping. Just a sample: If you happened to be in Copenhagen, Denmark the afternoon of October 25, you could have seen the future of Scientology in Europe unfold literally before your eyes. “Today we dedicate a cornerstone for Scientology in Europe and thereby lay a firm foundation from which to extend our Golden Age … [Read more...]

Sunday Redux — The Big Ideal Org Lie

scientology-detroit-new-building

 I am now making a regular Sunday feature of reposting previous articles that I felt were important. This one is from March 26, 2013. I have added some editorial comments to this in italicized red text that seem appropriate.   New Churches of Scientology — Where Are They? The Big Lie: David Miscavige repeats it over and over at events and in Corporate Scientology publications “We are expanding like never before – we have opened X new churches in the last X alone.” Here is a representative sample (in italics) from the Tampa Bay Times – just one of the MANY … [Read more...]
