An auditor rally... Actually ANYONE is invited, friends, family and anyone who "want" to be auditors. Just trying to get some people in the door to reg at Flag. Starting the Cocoon Squad in Austin now Come for the food... Stay for the regges -- they will be there. A shot of "theta" at Brighton Theta being defined as the "secret to money" $50 for brunch??? I'd hit the Island Way Grill just over the causeway-- their mimosas are real, their selection of food blows this away, it's cheaper and there are no … [Read more...]
Lyin’ Ryan is Back!
He has been hiding for a while, but Ryan Prescott has reappeared to take charge of his clown car once again. We have covered the delusional kid who claimed he was going to take charge of the Clearwater elections to "make sure Mark Bunker is not elected" and who wrote the books "exposing" Leah Remini and me as "liars" a few times in the past, this is perhaps the most comprehensive post: What Happened to Ryan Prescott? Stefani Hutchison on her wonderful Confront and Shatter blog has exposed Lyin' Ryan many times, this is just one example Ryan Prescott Lies Once Again. Now he has he … [Read more...]
We Will Take Your Money… But Don’t Show Your Face
Meet the Andrus family -- minus their patriarch, Brian. You might remember Brian Andrus, he is the unindicted co-conspirator who was recently involved in scientology's latest land grab scheme in Clearwater. But before that, he is one of the most notorious ex-GO criminals, as I laid out in that previous blog post. He was directly involved in the kidnapping of Michael Meisner to keep him away from the Grand Jury and FBI. He epitomizes what scientology proclaimed were the "rogue elements" and "criminals" who were purged from scientology after they were "discovered." In fact, many of them … [Read more...]
What Happened to the Biggest Disseminator in History?
Remember when Tom Cruise was lauded with the Flavor Flav "Freedom Medal of Valor" for being the greatest disseminator in the history of scientology? The video went on and on about how he is relentless and unwavering in his efforts to get the word out about scientology. That he has "brought LRH tech to over 1 billion people on earth, and that's just the beginning..." Remember the stories about how he rounded up all the celebrities in LA and read them the riot act about not being dedicated enough and not doing their bit to expand scientology? Those days are long gone. He … [Read more...]
Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery
Aaron Smith-Levin just pointed out to me that scientology has a blogsite that is mikerinderblog.org, apparently hoping to capture people who make a typo in inputting my url. They have my name in big bold letters, right at the top. I am not sure if it because I so often go to my blog site, but the search engine put up a notification asking me if I actually meant to go to my real blog which I found amusing. The content is pretty ironic. Aaron Smith-Levin did a YouTube video with Alex Stein and because Stein is a "holocaust denier" it "raises serious concerns." Of course it … [Read more...]
How Many Churches of Scientology in the World?
I originally did this post in 2019 and it cited the scientology newsroom website, so I went to check this site to ensure what was said was still accurate. Scientology is REALLY not keeping their webites current. This is the main page concerning the status of orgs -- and it talks about the fake expansion that occurred in the 10 years subsequent to 2004. In other words, this information is from 2014. Apparently there has been no growth since that time -- and the statement (this is exactly what it says:) Over 11,000 Scientology Churches, Mission and affiliated groups exist across 167 … [Read more...]

Kids now being promoted at "graduation" Drugs... They got 6 people together to say they're bad and hold a … [Read more...]
Another Ideal Org Fail
Another failed "ideal org" — this is one of the older ones. Bought in 2007, it is part of the “old guard” of ideal org buildings bought in a flurry of activity in the first years after Miscavige announced his boondoggle program. Battle Creek, New Haven, Philadelphia, Plymouth, Bulawayo, Harare and Capetown were all purchased and decades later sit unoccupied and falling to pieces. As I have pointed out many times before, if this “ideal org program” was really what Miscavige believed was the answer to expanding orgs and clearing the planet, he would just spend 50 million or whatever it would … [Read more...]
