Something Can Be Done About It

Just seen a story about the freewinds (sat). How embarrassing for them ))))
They don’t believe in medical drugs so they are open to diseases. They should just use their super powers as nd postulate it away))))
Four days in the news worldwide.
YES ! This is really looking like a jumbo popcorn event!
(A) Is the ‘Ship’s Doctor’ trained in anything more than a written “Hat” that any crew member can be assigned to? When I was in scientology that was all it took to do the job and make it go right, read the pack and do the job. Are there any medical credentials?
(B) Epidemologist’s NEED to know the exact places and people that this crew member contacted from a week before first symptoms appeared. That should be no problem since Hubbard promised total recall of all ‘Clears’.
(C) Ship’s logs need to be closely scanned for each day since this crew member boarded, to see if there have been individuals who have ‘disappeared’ somehow. Scientology is good at making people disappear.
(D) Curacao needs to require an outside contractor to go aboard to decontaminate and disinfect the freewinds. The only cleaning ‘hat’ the crew has is vinegar and old newspaper.
(E) And lastly, why the heck is this multi-billions cult taking 100 free Measles doses. They are not charity cases; no, they have become parasites to humanity.

Doesn’t that action make all involved “out exchange”?
I woke up this morning (Saturday) and see the freewinds is still hitting the major news wires. Popcorn at 6AM.
There Are No “Wins” In Scientology says
Someone sent me this link to watch, and as I started watching it I thought it was someone who has put together a satire lampooning Scientology. Come to find out is is not. It is an actual Scientology production.
“Testimonials for “wins”.
Mind-blowing the bullshit people will pay vast sums of money to have shoveled into their brains.
Any of these people in this video or anyone like them ever make it into MY world and it’ll be a case of instant reverse disconnection.
CroakWinds Rust Bucket says
They should call this 50 year old rotting hulk the WheezeWinds considering it is a mesothelioma lung disease factory now.
In April 2008, the Freewinds was shut down after blue asbestos was discovered by government health inspectors during maintenance by the Curaçao Drydock Company. Blue asbestos is the most dangerous form of asbestos, and the ship is reported to be “extensively contaminated”. According to InsuranceNewsNet, “Decontamination, if it is even possible, is likely to cost tens of millions of dollars and would result in the ship being in dry dock for many months.”
The discovery confirmed a 2001 allegation by former Scientologist Lawrence Woodcraft, who had overseen the original renovation of the Freewinds in 1987. The Captain also admitted that during previous maintenance performed by his personnel, asbestos was released into the ventilation system but not reported.
So: trapped on a ship in the middle of nowhere for weeks on end getting fleeced to take the fake OT Level courses and getting asbestos poisoning while you’re at it. Sounds like a winner.
Meryl Weiner says
Frankly, I don’t believe that Tom Cruise OWNS a pair of big boy pants.
What’s stands out to me is the “Out PR” of the Fleecewinds taking 100 FREE VACCINES from St Lucia!
A blatant admission that at least 100 people needed “WOG” medicine!!
Scamology is as Rich as it is Cowardly, skulking away… How “out exchange” not even paying for the vaccines…
Would someone please confirm that they DIDN’T PAY for the vaccines…? Based on news reports, they didn’t…
According to ABC News: “The ministry said it had also provided 100 doses of the measles vaccine, free of charge, at the request of the ship’s doctor.”
“At the request of the ship’s doctor..” ??? Double WTF!!!

Gus Cox says
The Flappiest Flap that ever Flapped lol
He can’t handle the truth.
Mean while deep in in the bowels of the Freewinds a similar saga plays out.
I think Tom Cruise will strike back like Leah Remini. I think Tom Cruise just might shut Scientology down and put David Miscavige behind bars for eternity.
That’s my postulate.
Please, Lord Xenu, make the postulate come true now, now, now!
Thank you Sir Xenu! I love postulates!
Kat LaRue says
I think Crusie is a real believer and wouldn’t be able to admit hes been pulled into lies. His ego is supposedly ginormous (like Miscavige). People like that NEVER admit they are wrong about ANYTHING. it would be a cosmic insult to their self image and they would not be ok with that.
Ann Davis says
Kat is right.
And Bomb Snooze is surrounded by people and a ” church” fully invested in keeping his stupidity and egotism maximally inflated and operational.
But…I would be profoundly happy if I am wrong !
But, you know… he can’t handle the truth
I have to wonder if flushing their sewage into the waters near a city port has anything to do with the recent unexplained spread of diseases like Measles and Ebola.
love this! i like the sinking ship too- and they dont even notice it…completely oblivious to the real world. I seriously was hoping for a good bout of norovirus to hit them too, but I guess the planets didnt align that much! (and I know Im going to a hot place in a hand basket for even hoping for it!)
I hope you won’t mind some company in that hot place. Maybe Mike will come too and we can support his blog there?
I’ve lived in Canada all my life and I’ve just about had it with the cold weather – although the West coast of Canada is almost perfect.
Company in a hot place is always welcome Skyler! You do know I was referring to Miami right? Lol
John Doe says
Oh good lord, this is so timely.
WTF is with Scientologists and the anti vaxxers? I know one couple that moved out of California because the state was considering legislation that would curtail enrollment of unvaccinated kids in public schools.
Now this same couple is moving from Washington State to Texas because Texas is loosening vaccination requirements?!?
But back to topic…oh how I look forward to hearing the stories we will eventually hear about how this measles quarantine is playing out on the Freewinds.
Of note in the news, Freewinds doctors evidently ordered 100 doses of measles vaccination. You know they are going to force those that aren’t vaccinated to get the shot, because if you refuse to do so, you would be guilty of treason for continuing the out PR!
How are those Scientologist that are virulently anti-VAX going to respond? (See what I did there?) Are they going to give in and get the shot, get outraged and leave Scientology, or or or??
One thing for sure: anybody that wants to go to the Freewinds be it Staff or Public are going to have to get all their vaccinations now.
Im sure they are busy trying to come up with a way to spin this as a ‘win’. It will probably be along the lines that a non-scientologist was sick, and all the OTs on board escaped the disease because of their superpowers. They will probably state that some conspiracy with the AMA forced the quarantine and foisted the vaccines on them.
Kat, you’re getting VERY good at this. What you’ve said is just the way the cult will spin it with their Sheeple. And succeed, I might add. Those outside the cult will just shudder.
If any of these members were off ship “floating around” St. Lucia….they might have exposed innocent babies (less than 1 year old) to measles…..as noted “ditching a quarantine doesn’t exactly seem like the best public relations move by the Church of Scientology”…who knows with 100% accuracy if OTHERS on board were vaccinated. Some of the newest info says SOME ADULTS might need to be “re-vaccinated”…what a crap shoot, putting people in risk of measles AND ditching a quarantine.
According to Tony’s blog….St Lucia was “tipped off” about the measles alert before they docked in St. Lucia, so no one was permitted to leave the Fart Winds……
jere lull (38years recovering) says
Balletlady: As I read one report, Curacao’s port authorities notified the port authorities at the announced “passing winds’ ” destination, as any responsible government group would do. Of course, Fleecewinds didn’t HAVE to go where they said they were going, though it IS suggested since that’s where their ‘advance team’ would have set up a berth, set up the convoys of supplies to be delivered, etc. port authorities the world over have their own little network to catch ships who routinely cause problems where they dock, or who could reasonably be expected to cause problems, like the destination’s very own little pandemic of measles.similarly, if a known communicable case of a deadly disease gets on a plane, the destination’s airport is routinely alerted. It’s just good for all concerned. It’s measures like these which MIGHT cut short the next “spanish Flu” epidemic, which this time could cause billions of deaths. BUT Fleecewinds doesn’t care; they’re just bodies of PTS wogs, of no concern to the OTs onboard.
So very sad Jere that the entire scenario of COS is about the $$$$$. It breaks my heart to know that wonderful, kind, giving, loving people like yourself ONLY wanted to improve the world & make it a better place.
As I’ve mention before…I knew people from high school who got into various different cult religions for the same reason, make the world a better place. They ended up broke, separated from family who disagreed with their choice, & they were emotionally & physically abused.
The ONLY thing that kept me out of anything like that was common sense in that “if it sounds TOO GOOD to be TRUE….it probably isn’t. These same acquaintances tried to suck me into their “clique”….Moonies, Hare Krishna….Children Of God..(the other cult’s names escape me at the moment)….one cult was like David Koresh…the “leader” demanded sex from ALL the women…no matter what age…young girls, older women….it was his “rite” & his followers were to obey without question sickening to say the least.
It is a Blessing that you’ve found your way to recovering from this cult & from the stroke you have had….my Blessings, Best Wishes & love to you & your family!
Sloppy Slappy Miscavige says
I heard David Miscavige was on that old rust bucket! My bet – this will push him over the edge! One of these days Miscavige is going to go too far and kill someone. He is a sociopath and has taken on the evil valence. He is losing at the game called Scientology.
He is stupid. David Miscavige will absolutely die to be right so he keeps making bad decisions on how to run Scientology.
What a total LOSER – David Miscavige, COB, of the cult called Scientology. He is nothing but a stupid freak loser.
Ooooh, if the Dwarf is quarantined on the Freewinds, ooh if only. Hilarious!
Yes, Aqua, I’m having a hard time not falling off my chair because I am laughing so much! Can you imagine…the COB of the COS having to remain in his cabin under strict quarantine…REFUSED exit from the Fart Winds at ANY Port. Imagine what he feels like screaming at the top of his lungs I want OFF this ship…& he’s ignored.
Talk about just dessert…if he IS quarantined to his cabin for three weeks he’ll get a great idea what it feels like to be held captive in THE HOLE for days, weeks, months, years….IF ONLY
That would truly be a day of uncontrolled belly laughs! There has to be a list of passengers somewhere!!
“Ooooh, if the Dwarf is quarantined on the Freewinds, ooh if only. Hilarious!”
Oh yeah! Trapped amongst his sheeple, forced to (somewhat) experience their “bubble- world” for even a few days; MINUS the heavy regging, of course….
BL, Kat, Jere,
And even worse -it just occurred to me – forget just being quarantined – it just occurred to me – even worse, what if COB actually HAS the measles?
“One of these days Miscavige is going to go too far and kill someone.”
Or, one of these days he’s going to go too far and someone is going to kill HIM.
I know; I shouldn’t wish for something like that; but maybe it’ll happen.
Exteriorized out of Scientology says
Honestly, prior to Scientology, I loved people – I loved and had hope for everyone. Scientology “disabused” me of that. I hate David Miscavige and all of the Scientologists who help Keep Scientology Scamming. I hope David Miscavige lives a long life behind bars where other prisoners make him lick their feces and pubes off of bathroom floors and I hope they do other sordid acts to his meat body. He deserves a life long punishment.
He has to be completely miserable in Scientology. No family, no friends, no one to trust, his cult is failing, nothing but negative news, no growth, big empty buildings and Tom Cruise now looking into Scientology and David Miscavige to make sure everyone’s Ethics are ruthlessly in. I think Tom Cruise is going to find out the truth. Not sure if he can handle it. He may willingly end cycle and drop his body and go off with Ron to Target Two.
Didn’t he basically kill Lisa McPherson??
Bixtram, how do you know he hasn’t killed someone already? After all, he was C/Sing the case of Lisa McPherson when she died needlessly. Then there is the story of Flo Barnet and maybe others. I’m not saying he did kill those people, but it bears looking into.
I would love it if it turned out to be true. But I cannot believe that someone who considers themselves to be a Living God would ever spend a second on that filthy rust bucket. I hope you are correct. But I’d have to guess the odds are close to zero that if he has ever been on that disease-ridden puss bucket, he would never go back for a second time.
It would be a gift from God (not Xenu but the one true God or the Old Gods and the New Gods too) for either or both of those real good buddies to be found on that rust bucket – especially if it got quarantined and they were forced to remain in quarantine together for any length of time. Fairly easy to predict that would be the end of that friendship. Don’t you think?
I feel the need to qualify this post is a reply to the post above made by Sloppy Slappy Miscavige and the hope that one or both of those real good buddies may be found on that bucket and especially that they may get quarantined there.
Mary Kahn says
Love the sinking ship in the background.
I swear if I’d have been quarantined after two months of being on the Ship From Hell, I would have lost my already-lost mind on three weeks more of doing things that were “theta” or for the “greater good” or just to “become a better person” or “increase my awareness” not to mention the mandatory “briefings” to donate more money. Oh My God!!!
Rip Van Winkle says
Funny thing the media doesn’t know and thus, wouldn’t be reporting:
in Scn, you are responsible for your own condition. So… quarantine? Just as you were about to leave? Tough luck. YOU PAY UP for the extra time.
What do you bet, Mary? Isn’t this the way it would go?
Everyone there is PTS because they pulled in being there at this time. Line up at the MAA here….
What are they being told about tweeting/facebooking on the subject?
What’s the story being fed to them?
I was at Flag for GAT II unveiling. I’d drilled with a chick who’d JUST finished up to Class VI auditor. She was then told to start at the beginning, Student Hat, on up…on her own dime. Full rate. No discounts.
You want to be in-exchange… “DON’T YOU???”
You want standard tek, “DON’T YOU???”
“DM went to all this trouble to finally get the bridge right, you’re on board, “RIGHT???”
so those poor suckers are there and paying. and going to ethics. and figuring out what they did to cause it.
I just think it’s funnier than heck that the OT VIII ship is not cause over a childhood disease. They took credit for the Berlin Wall coming down after the initial release of VIII… they take credit for hurricanes not hitting Flag and all kinds of silly stuff.
I ACHE to say, “so…PTS tek, it won’t keep you from getting sick or having accidents, but you use it AFTER, to find out why? but..it won’t cure it or take it away or keep it from happening? so..it’s good for..what? remind me?”
Loved your post, Rip. Yes, the Berlin wall came down – check. Hurricanes always bypass the Clearwater area – check. Measles hits the Freewinds…”Wwaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!”
Xenu's Son says
Before the sheeple know what is going on already a RB cartoon on it.Now that is ethics presense.
Body Thetan attached to COB says
Oh my….. what in the name of Xenu is going on in Scientology. Certainly one of the most flapping flaps to ever happen on the Fleecewinds. Can’t the Oat Tea’s “do something about it” with their super powers?
Certainly David Miscavige will be slapping up his stats for this PR disaster.
Rumor has it that Tom Cruise moved to Clearwater to confront why Scientology is not growing. After doing the Movie “Valkyrie”, Tom told a close Scientology friend who I know that he is going to confront and shatter the reason Scientology has a bad reputation and there is no growth.
I wonder if David Miscavige will stay clear of Clearwater??
Interesting times in the cult of Scientology for sure. Can’t wait to see if he pulls the string and actually looks. I wonder if Tom Cruise could handle and survive the truth?
Let’s do a survey.
Do you think Tom Cruise could handle the whole truth about L Ron Hubbard, Scientology and David Miscavige? Do you think he would knowingly and willingly “end cycle” drop his body due to the embarassment of making a fool out of himself along with the betrayal or would he put on his big boy pants and do something about it like Leah Remini did?
Exposing Scientology says
I think Tom Cruise is going to find out the truth now that he is living in Clearwater.
I don’t know what his ego could handle the truth about Scientology. It will be a lot confronting the truth that Scientology’s leader, David Miscavige, spied on him, destroyed 3 marriages and shattered his multiple families, manipulated and deceived him into thinking he was a “Big Being”, tricked him into making a total fool out of himself to the World, and gave a ton of money to support an evil cult that destroys people.
I do think that the truth will hit him square in the face if he dare confront the truth. He will realize with total certainty that his cult is shrinking, no one is coming in, no one will come in and that Scientology is done.
I am not sure what he will do about it once he finds out. He may get caved in and die. It will be a lot to confront.
Tom Cruise, thanks to Scientology, now has a huge, monster ego. He may go down with the sinking ship of Scientology. He may find out the truth and fight like hell to destroy Scientology but it takes humility and courage to face the truth. Scientology is nothing but a horrible hoax. It take tremendous courage and integrity to do what Leah Remini and Mike Rinder are doing.
Does Tom Cruise have the right stuff? After watching his movies – he certainly has played the parts. Let’s see if he has the balls to “do something about it” once he learns the truth.
I am really happy he moved to Clearwater. I think he will find out soon what his Cult is really doing behind his back. Kirsty Alley may find out too. I heard she moved to Clearwater.
Interesting times indeed and people like me who still has family inside this sinking ship are grateful to RB taking the time each week to document the implosion from inside the bubble.Hope some of them will read the weekly cartoons and some day have the courage to wake up blow and reconnect with their families.
Sorry Body Thetan, my reply to your post got put in as a separate comment – so here it is again: I don’t believe Tom Cruise OWNS a pair of “big boy pants.”
I think Tom Cruise could handle the truth about Scientology if he ABSOLUTELY HAD TO DO SO.
Until that time, I don’t think he could, would, or will.
And I think this applies as well to the majority of the for-real Still Ins. (Not the UTRs)
