No one understand how to beat this but in order to beat it you have to isolate the virus that will stop it from spreading a nation wide lock down is the only way to beat it only grocery store and hospital open along with emergency services everything else should be closed and people let out at a certain time not all at once but thats not going to happen and the death toll will be in the millions with in weeks not month

Someone is going to be in a universe of trouble come the next Sec Check. Mandatory divorces are a great revenue stream as the cult hoovers up all liquid assets.

I admire this woman for not toeing the party line. She’s thinking, and as a result, is drawing away from the cult. If this idiot doesn’t wake up, she’ll divorce him, and know freedom like she’s never felt before.
It’s always the women who have any sort of awareness in an RB comic, and I think that’s apt.

Dr. Dave will will be proven as a quack. I still think he has a body double. The latest Dave does not look like the original Dave. The real Dave is out somewhere spending his money, stockpiling TP, the new barter currency.

Today ONLY today in Italy there have been almost 1000 confirmed deaths for Covid 19. Today only. It is not hysteria or bullbait. They are human lives. And miscavige with his BULSHETIN 88 is just throwing gas on the fire.
Now also in the USA it is becoming more tragic hour after hour. But DM does NOT care about the public or staff who are held hostage by a chimera called eternity, or children or ordinary people. He thinks of cash flows and bullshit to say later, to take credit. He doesn’t give a damn. It is scientology that is heavily out of present time.

David Miscaviage himself is just a little blip of bullbait
And, to anyone who pays any attention to that cockaroach I say ” Flunk. You flinched”.
P. S. I may be being a little harsh and if so I apologize. But, from my viewpoint, he can do nothing to us. Have you ever seen anyone do anything to a corpse except bury it?
Scientology really does deliver immortality. When you are already dead you cannot be killed.

I can’t laugh cuz I’m so pissed at how the virus deniers are hurting others, especially those who are most vulnerable. I do wonder if, after all this is over, there will be stats by religion and the like. We could then see actual data on just how “at cause” Scientologists are. Just how effective will their confront of the planetary bullbaiting and their fancy cleaning products prove against the virus? But mostly I’m just fuming at how they will ultimately end up responsible for a lot of deaths, and no one will hold them accountable for it.
March 27, 2020 at 9:56 pm
As every day goes by, I feel more and more convinced that Scientology will have an outbreak, and it will destroy a segment of the cult.

When I found out that I had HIV I did some research and found deniers of the HIV too. These people say that the way not to get HIV was simply not to get tested for HIV. And the cause of the disease called AIDS was the meds given for HIV.
But actually, the chiro that the Freewinds sent me to told me not to take the meds and I followed his advice until I was all but dead. It is only due to my wife getting me to a real doctor that I am alive to write these words.
As I had never taken those meds prior to having been diagnosed with AIDS and I was all but dead when I started taking them and I recovered quickly, I never bought any of that bullshit
The above are all documented facts.
My OPINION is that since the “Church” is incapable of admitting that it is wrong; and worse , that no-one has the integrity or the suicidal inclination to make the dwarfenfuehrer wrong (Heil Miscaviage) they will deny that anyone has the virus. And then they will have the problem of what to do with all the dead bodies. Maybe they will stack them up in the folder tanks.

Being the nerd I am, I notice that RB draws the rear of the TV in fair detail, but that there is never any outside source plugged into the HDMI or RCA inputs. No antenna, either.
He wouldn’t be insinuating that Scientologists are completely disconnected from the rest of the world, would he? Say it isn’t so!!
James Rosso says
March 27, 2020 at 8:48 pm
Good catch! Possibly, RB would have to comment on it. The TV may only be connected to a VCR/DVD or Blue Ray player; however we can only see the top half. It’s possible it’s connected to cable through a port on the lower half somewhere. To catch Scientology TV on the …Dish?… network?
March 28, 2020 at 12:28 am
My goodness. If many people who visit one of the centers suffer some consequences as a result of this virus, I wonder if we might not be able to effect some positive changes in our society by preparing to make some statements about how the Crutch is responsible for this harm.
After all, people who pretend to have the virus and walk into stores and lick objects are now being charged with terrorist crimes. How difficult would it be to arrange for the DwarfenDumbass to get arrested for telling people to come into the centers if they then suffer some harm as a result of doing that. Seems like a similar crime to me.
Wouldn’t it be just wonderful to see the Tiny Turd in handcuffs and being led off to a Penitentiary?

When I left the Freewinds, I had had HIV/AIDS for 13 years. I determined this due to the fact that the 2 sex partners I had had in that time tested negative and the only other way I could have gotten it was in March 89 when I had a bleeding ulcer on the Freewinds.
In the Sea Org when I felt ill or sick I just usually remained on post.
There is some talk sometimes about going to ISO but usually I would just “suck it up” and keep going. If I thought that it was desired for me to go to ISO I would have gone there, but it seemed like what was needed and wanted was to do one’s post to the death. Between lives you can see a doctor. If you don’t get your post done and the stats up; everyone will be dead. Better that I die than to doom everone else.
Same goes with sleep and LOAs
Handle that on your own time so it does not affect production. ( Own time being defined as the time between body death and when you have to report back for duty; usually 21 years later.

My mother should have retired years ago, but doing whatever menial task she’s given, due to her condition, she deems as really important. No case on post! Makes people robots.
March 27, 2020 at 2:28 pm
I wonder what the reality of dealing with this is like in the bubble, and hope that we hear from some UTRs or even new defectors – though RB seems to always have a very perceptive take on things, if not actual insider information….

Kill body thetans! Are they out of their minds! Most of my friends ARE Body Thetans! What a world we live in! Killing Body Thetans no less!
March 27, 2020 at 2:19 pm
Considering body thetans don’t actually exist makes it all the more hilarious!

I suspect they’ve both done OT III, but I wouldn’t expect them to talk about it. Nice touch though.

Marital hilarity ensues with every visit to the mOrg. Yes little clam, you are being bull baited by members of the virus clade. Good luck with confronting them.
Where are the $cieno approved treatments, like colloidal silver and garlic? Garlic is great when used responsibly, but not so great if overused. I’ve ruined several Italian dishes with too much garlic. I just wonder how long the leads are on the e-meter. Too short and you’re breathing in the Auditors virus infested breath, and the next thing you know, you need a ventilator.
March 27, 2020 at 1:44 pm
Zee Moo. It is perhaps a little off topic. But for Italian dishes if I can give some advice about garlic, you can instead of doing it in small pieces simply crush the clove, remove the peel and put it like this. Depending on the dish you cook this allows you to remove it whole at the right time, after it has taken on the right flavor you wanted. You can also put more cloves.

Good one, RB. Don’t forget the vitamin C and garlic!
If you over-indulge in C, you just end up in the bathroom. Isolated well enough.
Lots of garlic, the so-called “natural anti-biotic”, and others will naturally isolate themselves from you. Perfect.
I don’t know why these guys think a “natural anti-biotic” would do any better than a real one. Neither are any use against a viral infection.
Linus Pauling, vitamin C advocate and Nobel Prize winner, got his Nobel in Chemistry. Not medicine. Your body just excretes the vitamin C you don’t use. https://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=5184850 Megadoses in the extreme cause it to excrete in a dramatically explosive manner often described as “turning your bowels to water”. Been there done that, came home with the T-shirt.
A time of pandemic illness is no time to indulge in superstition. The consequences are too great.

In defense of Pauling; He recommended 400 milligrams a day for health. He took 3 grams a day for himself. Neither are normally dangerous to anyone’s health.
Before the sweat/purif scam I had made the dianazine mixture and stopped at 3X the base mixture when I got nauseous . I was stupid, but not crazy.
March 27, 2020 at 1:37 pm
Vitamin C & Thiamine have been used with some success in respiratory infections and cases of sepsis. They actually help protect the body from your immune response. I can point to the papers on PubMed. Typically, the dose is a far higher than would be practical for oral use. Results in viral infections are mixed.
I have been taking supplements for C and the B-Complex since the start of the outbreak since it is unlikely to hurt anything (they do not build up in the body since they are water soluble) and there are reports that most critically ill patients with respiratory illness are deficient in these vitamins.

In defense of garlic: I’ve been taking Kyolic twice a day for most of a year for one reason: I am allergic to fleas, and we have 4 furry animals living here. Our dog is outside a lot in the daytime; the cats are never allowed out. Last summer we had the worst flea infestation I have ever experienced in 22 years of living here, so I started taking garlic because I had heard that fleas don’t like the way your blood tastes when you do. I have had ONE flea bite since last July. It happened shortly after I got out of the hospital in mid-February. They had me off garlic while I was in the hospital. Imstrted taking it again right away when I got bitten, and I haven’t been bitten again.

Scientology has posted a Prevention Resourse Center on the web. It includes links to their booklet, their video and other resources.
March 27, 2020 at 12:29 pm
Read. But it looks to me a contradiction with Ignw 88. Just PR for the wogs? Or they have already cases they won’t say but will hid? Where did it went the comments about “hysteria”???
March 27, 2020 at 11:01 am
Very funny indeed. You are right. You can be immersed up to the neck in all those sanitizing products but if someone sneezes too close I don’t know if they are needed. With the statistics of infected and dead (even among doctors) DM is really disgracing himself for all to see. And it’s not an “everyone says” thing. Scientology is finally sinking on its own.

On a related note, ex-victims who recently eft the SO should consider making a report to the proper authorities about likely conditions in Sea Org berthing.
Not only are the Damnation Navys slaves not making a choice either informed or fo their own, they are also going to be a major additional load on the public health system if things go wrong, and I think we can safely say that things could possibly go very wrong indeed.
All joking aside.
March 27, 2020 at 3:24 pm
Sea Org berthing…ugh. Even without the fear of Covid-19 – ugh. All those bodies piled up in one room; a dozen or so using the same bathroom – Jesus, its enough to turn your stomach. No wonder they get married so much. Anything to escape living this way. Once Massa decides “for the greatest good” that a Sea Org Slave Couple has to divorce and maybe ships one of them off to a different Plantation, they know they’ll have to go back to too many bunk beds in a small, foul smelling bedroom, and a crummy bathroom shared by far too many people. I’m feeling mildly ill just thinking about it. Can’t blame them for getting married so much, actually, if only for the sake of their own hygiene. I’d do the same.
March 27, 2020 at 6:11 pm
Aqua, True. At the end many married to have a couple room. But when I was there in EU I remember that marriage was also hiddenly pushed time by time to get people from countries not part of EU community legalized. So romantic I would say.
March 28, 2020 at 12:04 am
Yes, I personally know of a marriage pushed on a young Sea Org member for that very reason. They barely knew one another and yet got married. Sad. Of course, there’s sex too. No sex in the SO unless you’re married. And who knows? They might develop genuine love and a real rapport. It might work out. But given the high divorce rate in the SO, well, I wouldn’t put any money on it lasting, let’s put it that way. Given that Sea Org couples are really not committed to one another, but for all practical purposes are brides and grooms of Miscavige, I wouldn’t bet on it.
March 28, 2020 at 9:51 am
Aqua. It is just insane. One marries someone and sometimes it is okay or they get divorced or become couples in the balance. Personally I was very young I was already in the SO and I had to marry a girl because I had done a few more caresses and therefore I could end up in the RPF. The SO: a 360 degree nightmare where I left some of the best years of my life. (But not all of them though. Laughing)
March 27, 2020 at 9:49 pm
I was never an SO member, but I’ve lived with them. Dirty, smelly teenagers, despite whatever age they happened to be!
March 28, 2020 at 12:09 am
I understand what you said, Imabberated, but I don’t understand HOW you could have lived with them if you weren’t in the Sea Org yourself. Please, do tell! (If you want to.)
March 27, 2020 at 9:35 am
THIS is the reason why Scientology’s rejection of Social Distancing is so dangerous. If you wait for someone to be symptomatic to distance, it is too late.
March 27, 2020 at 12:05 pm
Maybe DM needs police and government Board of Health coming into the orgs and shutting down everything with force to make him to realize that this bulshetin 88 is really “aa third and fourth dynamic” suicide.
March 27, 2020 at 12:16 pm
Digging a little more into this I see that the county shows 35 cases positive, 5 hospitalized, and 1 death who, of course, is the 80+ year old high risk demographic. There was nothing that specifically noted that any of these were specifically in the choir group. It’s hard to determine the actual links when the “reporting” is so generalized…..
March 27, 2020 at 3:48 pm
The New York Times story linked in the tweet reports:
* * * * * BEGIN EXCERPT * * * * *
Of the 60 people who attended a March 10 practice, 45 have developed symptoms and 27 so far have tested positive, officials said. One of the group’s members has died, another has been hospitalized and others have struggled to overcome their illness.

March 28, 2020 at 12:18 am
I’m beginning to believe – for real, now, I’m not being sarcastic – I’m beginning to believe that a substantial portion of Americans have what I would call a death wish, an actual desire to die, and what Scientology would term “succumb postulates”.
