Facebook Police Chief and ex-SO, Jojo Zawawi reveals some interesting facts in her latest posting on the Facebook “Scientologists” group.
Apparently her effort is to “D/A” the spoof email that was sent out by thetaburst informing one and all that the dates of the events may change.
But she also reveals some other interesting news:
There will be no showings at Missions.
There will be no repeat showings and no DVD’s made.
But gosh, if this is so damned important, why not let everyone see it? And why no “repeat showings” (don’t count on it) and no DVD’s available.
Simple answer: when Marty Rathbun, Tony Ortega and I used to post excerpts of His speeches on the internet the hammer came down. COB does NOT appreciate anyone criticizing his performance or picking apart what he says and showing him to be a liar. They could NOT figure out where they were leaking from, so after a series of failed efforts to find the leak and more and more “security” on the event videos, they finally decided not to put them out other than to Orgs and then only with VERY tight security.
Dear Leader is preventing the faithful from hearing His words of brilliance because He fears non-sycophants might hear it.
Obviously there is some difficulty getting people to “register” so now they are offering “gifts” if you come in and do it.
Oh dear, change of plans. Now they DONT accept cash or credit at any restaurants this weekend…
As usual, that old glamourpuss Penny Atwell Jones is planning on making a killing darling with her gorgeous gowns and accessories for all the fashion challenged Cornerstoners and Humanitarianistas.
How ready CAN you get for a timeless moment in whole track
What the hell does this even mean?
Apparently my comments about the timely church PR release of the training session on Palau prompted a reaction (its always good to know they keep reading my blog….)
The VM website put up a “Message from First Responder Ayal Lindeman on Typhoon Haiyan in Philippines”. Now this guy does get up off the couch and go places to try and do what he knows. Agree or disagree with what the VM’s do, many of them truly want to help and think what they do is useful.
BUT, read the message carefully:
US Veteran first responder Ayal Lindeman is leading the international Scientology Volunteer Ministers disaster response team to help the Philippines recover from super typhoon Haiyan. Here is his message:
This will be my second trip to the Philippines for a super typhoon Cat 5 response in less than a year.
The devastation is intense. We cannot sit by. No one can. It is the true nature of a being to desire to help and the fact is that you can.
With these deployments, specialized equipment is needed and that takes funds.
Hmmmm, I guess he is “leading it” but he has not left yet as he “is leading” the team and it “will be my second trip” (as opposed to it is my second trip)
But, here’s the rub. What a surprise. WE NEED MONEY! The billion dollars the IAS has isnt enough yet to deploy some people and some equipment to the Philippines. GIVE US MORE.
What is going to be REALLY interesting is to see how many of the couch humanitarians get on a plane to the Philippines, how many get on a plane to Flag for the most important event in the history of any universe (never to be replayed) and how many remain on the couch.
My bet is 1% head to the Philippines. 2 1/2% go to watch Dear Leader bloviate. 96 1/2% stay on the couch.
Still On Your Side says
If member is broke, and can barely afford to get to the SP event, how the hell can they afford formal clothes? My pharmacist received a text while waiting on a customer. The text said her entire immediate family had been killed in the Philipines. It was a horrendous moment, and now I read that this so-called church is worried about formal gowns and tuxedos. They obviously could care less about the people in the Philipines. It is such an elitist, uncaring organization–they should stop this nonsense and sell a few tuxedos and ball gowns and buy some medicine and food for the people in the Philipines.
Madam X says
No, they will not do any kindnesses like that. Yet, that would give them excellent PR and goodwill points. They will reg the living hell out of people for IAS donos because of the Philippines tragedy. They have promoted that they are funding a grant for VMs to go there. There are, really, a handful. They will give touch assists and do some good. These are good hearted people that do bother to go and try to help, however misguided we believe they are. But it’s sad that they are being used by the IAS, basically, as a front for fundraising. There is no transparency in the cult so they get away with this sham.
And stupid scientologists could demand transparency (of course, they’d be kicked out!), but still! But they’re content to keep the blinders on.
Forrest Crane says
Prior to a timeless moment on the track is a prior confusion which results in a problem in which a thetan will adopt a valence. Prior to the confusion one will find O/Ws. What valence has the Cof$ adopted that it believes will survive? Penguins. That’s good survival.
Penguins? Perhaps that’s why the demand for tuxedoes this weekend? LOL
Of course there will be video recorded.
This is just a ploy to try and get more suckers to attend.
Afterall the biggest thing to hit the universe since the Oprah couch jumping.
Say does anyone know what COBsucker thought about that?
Andrew Robertson says
Come on Mike, be nice to JoJo. She was a big thetan even at 13. Ron said so in ‘Orders of the Day’ Jan 20 1971! When she was just Jo Albert.
“Our 13 year old star Dianetic auditor Jo Albert hung on for six hours on one session day before yesterday and changed the pc’s whole life. Secret of her success? She does flubless commands. It’s real Dianetics. You should try some.”
Jose Chung says
Somehow Dear Leader will add more monkey wrench’s.
His Golden words will be transmitted to the Times by Satellite uplink’s
positioned around Flag.
Idle Morgue says
I believe the Church of Scientology has slipped into PTS Type III – they have so many enemies and cannot trust anyone so they place a hard plastic bubble around the Organization and are paranoid and crazy! There is no love, no compassion for human beings. They are swinging at windmills – paranoia abounds!
I told a Scientologist not too long ago –
I did not get into Scientology to FIGHT perceived enemies. Scientology is suppose to be a CHURCH – where people come to improve their conditions. Why does a “Church” wear military uniforms, why so many enemies…I thought only 2.5% of the population were truly evil yet Scientology perceives everyone to be evil – even their own! What a bat shit crazy cult and for those that are still breathing life into it – STOP IT and GET OUT!
Scientology consists of a paranoid, crazy leader – David Miscavige and a bunch of robots that can’t think for themselves and don’t even apply their own TEK – they refuse to LOOK. Hubbard said you have to have something else to compare in order to truly evaluate something – well, look at NORTH KOREA!! See any similarities?
Flexible Flyer says
Sounds like your going to an Scientology Inc senior prom that costs a lot and has no dancing. And worst yet your not getting lucky at the end of it.
People dont need to get lucky.
They were already screwed hard!
Nah David, He will simply use it as the excuse only 300 show up for the events.
This reminds me of a sci-fi book that started off with fission bomb testing under a forcefield. Somehow, the biggest thing in this universe ever is going up and nobody gets to hear about it. Strange, but I know DM loves secrecy and his fans have come to love it, too. It’s just so conspiracy.
Meanwhile, on a distant shore far from Flag, I’m getting several e-mails a day from my local org, plus others from various AOs and other orgs – and not one single mention of this biggest thing yet. Nada.
I recall an obscure minority religion, I think it’s still around today, they sent people out into the world to spread the gospel, which meant good news. I think they did quite well for themselves, all in all.
Cat Daddy says
Posted on WWP for good measure.
And here is a little bit of Karen.
“The *Church* of Scientology has not sued the media in some 14 years. The last time it sued was Time Magazine a to a resounding LOSS for the Church, millions of dollars later….
In more recent times, Vanity Fair was threatened and threatened *See you in Court….*
Hot Air, Bogus Threat.
Larry Wright on the book “Going Clear” bogus threats to him and his Publisher
Jenna Miscavige Bogus threats to Publisher
CNN threatened over and over again before airing of “Scientology,. a History of Violence”
BBC Panorama, numerous bogus threats to Panorama Legal
“Scientologists at war” documentary (recently sold to VOD) numerous threats to the videographers and the lawyers of the documentary film company ~~ all bogus, all hot air.
Burt Fields (Tom Cruise Lawyer) bogus threat to Marty Rathbun.,
On and on and On.
Idle threats. Bogus threats. Hot air.
The tactic is to huff and puff and beat on one’s chest like a Tarzan.
Toothless. Dysfunctional. Duplicitous.”
I suspect, as well, on the sits where *they* have been sued, they’re going to take a fearful beating in every way one can imagine. In the past, simply keeping things slowed down by repeated legal postings, hoping against hope, that the suit filers will curl up and go away. It’s not only not going to help any longer, but is going to encourage more and more such lawsuits.
Exactly why is anyone attending any venue where they will be cornered and squeezed for more money than they can capably part with?
I guess … why wait for the consequences your NOTs auditor routing you off to the MAA for having lied, deceived and withheld from the GAG II reges?
Just write us a cheque, and we’ll be more than happy to overlook time, place, form and event. Just imagine the relief you’ll feel having barely averted a Sec Check which would have turned out to have been the more costly of the propositions. Call it the “Smart PRe-OT Accounting & Redemption System”. (SPARS).
Some session lists to be run right after F/Ning ruds may need to be revised again … GAG II the: “Post-Rudiment Correction List”.
“HAVE YOU SUCCESSFULLY AVERTED A SEC CHECK USING ‘SPARS’?”
(No 2WC or E/S to F/N. Route directly to MAA/Reg)
“DID YOU SECRETLY WISH YOUR FLIGHT TO CLEARWATER WOULD CRASH?”
(No 2WC or E/S to F/N. Route directly to MAA/Reg)
Ok, that’s enough. ‘Hogan’s Heros’ reruns back on again.
Martin Padfield says
Hey Mike, where’s the link where I can confirm my attendance? (referenced on Pete Vilinsky’s FB posting). I searched the official Scientology web sites again to no avail, no news, no information.
What’s more palpable, the excitement, or the confusion? The dates are definitely, almost maybe completely certainly, now fixed. There will be food vouchers for sure, probably. And you absolutely won’t be able to pay cash. Except you may be able to, possibly. But definitely not on the day. There WILL NOT be repeat showings of the event – really probable this one, absolutely likely. You will need to wear a tuxedo to the events. Without question, except if you don’t, and not the ribbon cutting – that’s a given. If you have not got an IAS membership card you WILL NOT be granted entry. Unless you don’t have one. Then you should pre-register for the event last week. With your DNA sample and medical history – although that’s not compulsory. Anyone not complying should see the MAAs to do a confusion formula, or the Registrars along Fort Harrison Avenue – it’s never too late to become a Cornerstone!
Oh the fun I am missing!
Richard Grant says
Martin, you’ve definitely caught the spirit of rampant confusion here. Well played!
The ambiguity around ID requirements is striking. That “no entrance without IAS card” dictum, published by Mike a few days ago, seemed clear enough — and was also revealing in that it blatantly equates Scientologist = IAS member = someone who pays money to RCS for reasons that have nothing to do with training or Bridge progress. That’s something everyone more or less “knows” but I’ve never seen it spelled out so starkly.
Yet it’s far from clear that the middle-grade staffer who issued that requirement had the authority to do so, or that he knows what the actual policy is, or whether such a policy even exists. The problem with blasting out hastily-written instructions from multiple terminals — even if they don’t flat-out contradict each other — is that people on the receiving end have no way of knowing which is more important, more reliable, more believable than the others. And they just keep coming! Even as people are hustling to the airport with or without proper ID, with or without tuxedos, without any real clue of what awaits them in Clearwater.
I’d guess confusion over who gets to eat on campus will be the LEAST of the cock-ups about to happen.
“A Timeless Moment in Wholetrack History. Huh?”
I will add my own “huh?. As a matter of fact, make that a “huh!!??”
So, according to Pete and JoJo and cohorts, David Mi$cavige now wants to create for everyone another ‘timeless moment’ on our whole tracks …..and of course as usual it will be up to us to audit it out. (Hopefully this little con blows up in DM’s face.)
Meanwhile, here’s what LRH has to say about ‘timeless moments’ on the whole track:
“Your preclear is stuck wherever there was no motion of particles, whether the moment is a pleasure moment, a triumph, a failure, or even a death. In the absence of particle motion, as far as he is concerned, if he has lost his power to change is considerations, no time has existed. Thus, those things which your find in the engram bank which are most readily available to the preclear are things which contain no change in them or things which have change immediately before them and after them but have no change between. In the absence of this change, we get a condition of timelessness in and engram or facsimile which permits that incident to ‘float’ on the track and thus rise up to present time.
As the preclear becomes more and more embedded in motionless incidents, he becomes harder and harder to change himself. Or, as he dramatizes to a marked degree his own bank, in the most ordinary living, he dramatizes the changeless moments and he, himself, does not change.”
-Professional Auditor’s Bulletin (PAB) #46, 18 February 1955
Ok I think we all know how this is going to end:someone’s going to post the events in their entirety moments after it’s over and send COB in to a meltdown of epic proportions
This is a reply to Threefeetback (I’m somewhat muzzled on your blog, in that if I “Reply” to a post, the “Reply” posts at the end of the blog scroll as a new post. Except for this, my computer seems to be free of glitches, viruses, etc. Possibly something to do with settings on your end? Just wanted to mention this.)
I get the same thing on different computers and locations. I also get a message that just says “error” when I try to open new posts.
I have trouble for some time with Martys blog too where it just doesnt work right. The comments wont load and other problems. I assume it might be some problem with WordPress, but it’s strange because other than that I don’t have any problems. Maybe a lot of people are reading Mikes blog and it’s overloading WordPress?
I think if I was still in I would find it exciting- like I was part of a secret club. The elite of planet earth being summoned for the big win. Outside the bubble it’s just a slightly creepy gathering of a bunch of nuts that has zero impact on the actual world and reality.
I think a “timeless moment in whole-track history” is an engram isnt it?
So they are making people register and and pass through security to go to a DVD play of the event at the Shrine? I wonder if they are doing that at Orgs too?

The Oracle says
“There will be no showings at missions — only Flag and Orgs.”
“EXCLUSION OF OTHERS IS THE BASIC CAUSE OF WAR AND INSANITY.”
“The Catholic Church only began to fail when it began to exclude.
“Thus inclusion is a major point in all great organizations.”
– L. Ron Hubbard – HCO PL 14 DEC 1970
The Oracle says
When one considers the dynamics of exclusion, when the Church began selling “memberships” it became an exclusive group.
1.Excluding or not admitting other things.
2.Restricted or limited to the person, group, or area concerned.
a : excluding or having power to exclude
b : limiting or limited to possession, control, or use by a single individual or group
a : excluding others from participation
b : snobbishly aloof
a : accepting or soliciting only a socially restricted patronage (as of the upper class)
So being, The I.A.S., sworn to the duty to protect, actually is the basic source of the war and insanity.
That is, if you can think with Hubbard’s ideas. This one is more or less visually evident in many many places throughout society.
The Oracle says
Currently, the national grocery store chains (Costco and Sam’s club excluded, for now) are in the business of cancelling these “membership” cards they issued to shop, in several major cities, as statistics indicate it has been worse for revenue than gas prices going up.
The Oracle says
If anyone reading here is aware of any Church or religion on the planet that sells memberships, positioning themselves with health clubs and grocery stores, besides the Church of Scientology, please share.
The Dark Avenger says
Here in California we have a supermarket chain, SaveMart. They don’t have a membership card, but they have the SHARES program, where a small % of the purchases made throughout the year are directed towards’ the purchasers favorite non-profit organization like a school, or in this community, the Friends of the local Public Library. I don’t know if churches and the like count, but they might.
“Membership cards” are free money. They carry no obligation. And, in scio, they are not required to be shown in most cases. (This weekend is *very* different.) Missluggage will never pass up a chance at free money.
Hallie Jane says
Excellent point on exclusion Oracle. Look how North Korea has fared with that policy. Identification tags and vouchers sound like a war time scenario of extreme danger and paranoia.
I knew Jojo years ago when she was a nice Jewish girl and I can not believe the transition she’s made to Koolaid imbiber.
Has anybody been able to decrypt that cryptic poster?
“A Timeless Moment in Wholetrack; History is Coming”
It seems almost Marxist, maybe Owellian. Sorta like:
“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”
How can history come? Since it already came.
It could send someone in a spin down the whole track into an implant trying to figure it out.
Maybe that’s what its intended to do.
Seems they got their importances down. I mean finding the right tux or evening gown is obviously more important than auditing PCs or learning how to audit.
Vouchers? What is this a soup kitchen? Appearances are everything to these status-seeking big beings. Many of them love conspicuous consumption and I don’t think they’ll be too comfortable paying with a glorified coupon. And the excuse that it helps makes things go faster doesn’t fly, either. Credit cards and debit cards are faster than cash, and point-of-sale terminals with chip and pin or tapwave readers are even faster. No, Idle Morgue has it bang on that the reason for the vouchers is to get an accurate head count, but also to capture revenue. With vouchers, there’s no way anyone will think of eating off site at a ‘wog’ restaurant (heaven forbid!) Like Vegas, you’re getting ‘money-in-kind’, and at that point it matters not to them whether or not you spend it all. And by not accepting credit, they avoid paying transaction fees to MC, Visa, AMEX, etc. It’s always about the money.
So, even when it comes to feeding the guests they’re ripping people off. I wonder if there’s someone who’s going who is staying at a non-Sci hotel and eating at a non-Sci restaurant.
Just Me says
Reading those desperate missives about the weekend hoopla makes me shudder. Everyone knows they’re going to spend the weekend being judged, regged, and hungry. The smart ones will pack protein bars in their bejeweled purses.
Ms. Atwater Jones got a real shout-out there, although “fashion” and “Flag” aren’t two things that I’ve ever paired. God, imagining being inside that zoo — in the rain, no less — makes my stomach roll.
Regarding a “timeless moment” on the whole track, doesn’t that sound an awful lot like the way LRH described an engram in restimulation?
Gus Cox says
JoJo was one of the most theety-weety dimwits I ever met, except maybe for Denise Duff. Well, Denise wasn’t so much theety-weety as she was a dimwit, but whatever. Both seem to get off on policing others, now.
“Dress Code: Upstat Casual.” Hmm, I seem to have missed the chapter in Vanderbilt’s Etiquette that described “Upstat Casual.” The use of “upstat” as an adjective for anything and everything was always one of my pet peeves.
Dang, I’d love to be in Clearwater that weekend. Not inside the tent of course, but somewhere nearby with a parabolic microphone and a big zoom lens.
War Horse says
I’d describe JoJo and Denise– both of whom I’ve known for years– slightly differently. JoJo is a dunderhead and a nincompoop; Denise, a vapid featherweight airhead.
Both would have to improve slightly to qualify as dimwits.
Gus Cox says
Hmmmm. Points well taken. I stand corrected.
Madora Pennington says
WTF? Why can’t they accept cash?????
Just guessing Madora, but since everyone is having to jump through hoops just to get confirmed to attend (all to keep out the riff-raff I’m sure) I would imagine the same holds true with the food vouchers. If don’t have your special pass for the events you can’t get a food voucher. Just another security thing. Damn those people are paranoid!
The wording also makes it sound as if there are absolutely no restaurants in the vicinity that won’t accept cash or cc. Insane!
There are plenty of good and reasonable places to eat if you just drive a few blocks out of downtown Clearwater.
I’m amazed… I wonder how many of the SciFiGuys still in are pondering this whole thing about the tight security, needing to have IDs to get in, last minute plans, yaddah yaddah. Does that not look suspicious? Like they are being routed in to the slaughter? One would think that everyone would be approaching with great trepidation…no matter how brittle and bombastic their enthusiasm is. Wowweeee! A truly remarkable happening this weekend. I can’t wait to see videos and photos and catch the gist. 🙂
David Cooke says
Even DM’s speeches are getting to be confidential data now. With no official transcripts or permanent audio/video recordings, the only way his words of ideal wisdom can be disseminated through the universe will be … Verbal data!
“My bet is 1% head to the Philippines. 2 1/2% go to watch Dear Leader bloviate. 96 1/2% stay on the couch.”
Now, that is hilarious!!!!
‘You need to see all the events — they are not repeats on the 2nd day — they are part of the same event.’
They must be a bit giddy with excitement.
I just looked up the word “insular” in my dictionary and what did I find but a picture of the Church of Scientology! Now to check out “black hole.”
The reactive mind is composed of:
(HCOB 25 MAY 1962)
Thus, those things which you find in the engram bank which are most readily available to the preclear are things which contain no change in them, or things which have a change immediately before them and after them, but have no change between. In the absence of this change, we get a condition of timelessness in an engram or facsimile which permits that incident to “float” on the track and thus rise up to present time.
As the preclear becomes more and more embedded in motionless incidents he
becomes harder and harder to change himself. Or, as he dramatizes to a marked degree
his own bank, in the most ordinary living, then, he dramatizes the changeless
moments, and he, himself, does not change.
(P.A.B. No. 46)
It’s actually appropriate they are promoting a “TIMELESS” moment in history. They are, after all, simply laying in another engram on the poor schmucks who show up.
Lots ot theta trapping going on in that there tent.
Excellent reference, they are actually verbalizing their own whole track engram.
Black Panther says
Emails are going out to South African public about “one time only” showings too. Our country is already in pre-Christmas party mode – year-end office functions, weddings and engagement parties are in full swing before everyone shuts down and heads off for Christmas holidays. This is THE worst time of year for SCN events in S. Africa and now because of RCS last-minute-too-little-too-late GAG, SP and IAS events they’re saying “tough luck” to those out-ethics scumbag public who had the “nerve” to plan their lives in advance? Their arrogance knows no bounds. I’ll bet you anything you like that when the insane after-event sales quotas are not met, the powers-that-be will quickly change their minds re “one time showing only”. If they want to be regging mountains of materials onto public they will HAVE to show the GAG event video again. And again. And again. The 2007 Basics Release event is still being shown!
Well as far as not making a video, it is better this way so they don’t have to overrun the public in watching it over and over and over again while waiting at the lounge for his next session and after telling the public that it was forbidden to use computers or read a novel because a COB video was being played. I am not making this up, it did happen at FSO.
Also the staff will be spared of sleep deprivation as otherwise they would have to stay way too late to watch 3 to 5 times, each night, an event video of the Tiny Leader…North Korea’s style you know.
Independently of this it demonstrates He is in a maniac rampage of control over everything as otherwise he will feel the attacks towards him could get worse or that his lies will be exposed on the fringes of Internet. The reality and truth is that he is in terror, even if he pretends otherwise.
All bullies are in fear. Comes with the territory. I’ve commented on his basic fear before and you are exactly right. Note that anytime he attacks, hits, kicks or slaps anyone, he always has his bully boys standing right there to protect him from retaliation.
Idle Morgue says
Very Well Done everyone – David Miscavige has been SUPPRESSED!! This is huge!! The other point is the reason they are enforcing food vouches is to try to get a head count prior to the event…and there is no other reason. Scientology needs to know how many actors they need to hire to fill up a section of the area that will then be photo shooped (adding 10,000 people) for the propaganda to feed the clubbed seals.
David Miscavige is really stupid and so predictable!
I don’t often comment, but like many read your blog daily from Hawaii.
You are definitely the tail wagging the dog here.
In my day the events were nightmares for staff, before, during and after.
I can’t imaging the pressure now.. promote.. don’t promote..invite.. don’t invite..Pretend to be happy while you watch your back. Stay up until the quotas are met.
There will be inevitable carnage internally.
It used to be like running against traffic on Interstate 5. You were just elated not to be run over by the time it ended.
So glad to be miles away from this, but I feel for my old friends. I am sure sleep is currently a precious commodity as is sanity.
Keep up the good work Mike. You are the pin prick for every hot air balloon Miscavige inflates. And you do it with such humor and grace.
Payback is a bitch Dave. Mike has you KO’d in every round with the world watching.
Mike Rinder says
Hi Mark 🙂
They want it to keep it so, so tight and scrutinized that you need to register if you want to eat those days; this could be too a veiled tactic to get ‘confirms’ and report to the highest command level so he either screams for having only 1,000 confirmed or maliciously grins as he can now demonstrate ‘he is winning’.
Either way this is going to cause massive confusion; for those who live in Clearwater this will be a matter of a short stop at the auditorium and get signed but, assuming some 100s of attendees come from outside, then what? Do they have to line up and buy vouchers as no cash or credit is accepted at the restaurants? Dud, you can not make it more complex and less friendly than this.
Come see the bloviating tightwad shoot his wad on stage.
To Mike Rinder: I’m somewhat muzzled on your blog, in that if I “Reply” to a post, the “Reply” posts at the end of the blog scroll as a new post. Except for this, my computer seems to be free of glitches, viruses, etc. Possibly something to do with settings on your end? Just wanted to mention this.
Richard Grant says
3ft, I’d just put this down to WordPress Comment Tech, which seems to obey a set of laws unknown to mortal bloggers. Don’t feel muzzled! We’re reading you 5×5.
David J Mudkips says
I saw the typhoon devastation on the news, wondered whether Tiny Dave might actually prohibit VMs from going out there, because his Big Tent Events are more important….
Musn’t ever forget: THE MONEY.
It won’t go to the Philippines, though. It’ll go into the black hole of the giant sponge’s mouth and he is hungry!
The poor VM’s who actually go to the Philippines will do so on their own tab as usual. The IAS doesn’t give a penny to help any VM do his or her relief work but will take all the credit for their efforts. I’ve said this so many times now, I feel like a broken record.
I just hope some new person is reading this blog and is getting enlightened. The CoS does not believe in ‘charity’, never has. Everyone is responsible for their own condition, remember?
Idle Morgue says
Scientology does absolutely nothing for anyone. They get public to pay for the work the Church claims to do and then takes credit for it! Gold then takes pictures and the clubbed seals are fed the propaganda from the cult to implant the illusion of the show!
Even worse than that, they only spend a fraction of what they collect playing bookie for the gig like some of these disaster-relief organizations that cut themselves 80+% commissions. Until IAS opens their books, I will consider that true until proven otherwise. They’ve done it with CCHR collections, they give no accounting. But then the IAS is not the CO$, and can scam you like any other Africa famine-relief front-end.
Certain organizations connected to or operated by many religious charities as well as UNICEF indicate what percentage goes directly to relief victims. IAS tells you squat, thus doesn’t meet any reputable charity requirements. If I want to assist the unfortunate in the Philippines, the last thing I want to finance is IAS’ Camera and PR crews. What a colossal waste and betrayal of help.
IAS conmen would like us to watch their goodie-2-shoe PR videos to extract even more money, but they don’t want to show us what they took in or spent.
What a CO$ “lean-to” scam extraordinaire.
The IAS doesn’t give any money to help the VMs. You don’t sound like a broken record Pepper and more people are learning the truth about the IAS each day. Carry on!
Miss Tia says
I’m envisioning MASS confusion at the food lines for those that DO show up since now they aren’t taking cash or credit cards (and seriously, no free food AT ALL??) Lines WILL be held up when people don’t have ‘vouchers’.
Will ANY of them question the secrecy here with NO repeats? NO Dvds? I mean if this is so important, shouldn’t it be on DVD for all to see and hear? Weren’t they planning on having jumbo screens outside the tent too?
PLEASE someone, make us proud and record this—even if it’s just audio!!!
So many people are ready to mirror anything leaked from these big, sooper-dooper-pooper events. I’m kinda excited!
