A few things to unpack here.
First, their “accomplishments” are that they “remained open.” Typically, an organization like this would be touting inflated numbers of “lives saved from drugs” — clearly, they had virtually none. Instead, they announce the “success” of their podcast? 194 episodes for 250,000 downloads over 3 years? This is impressive? I think not. Now that I know something about the podcast world, this is virtually nothing. Fair Game podcast exceeded those download numbers the first week on the air.
But, let’s not stop there. They put out 16 “stellar, informative” newsletters (like the one you are reading above). This is an accomplishment?
They just had to drop some names — and of course, Pam Bondi is right up there given her prominence in the Trump administration. Want to keep putting her name out as a supporter of all things scientology. She is not uninformed about scientology — apparently they have offered or promised her something she wants? Marshall Faulk and Gerald Posner I have no idea about so given them the benefit of the doubt.
But, while crowing about their “accomplishments” and how they are saving the world, it turns out this tax exempt organization took MORE government handouts in the form of PPP loans — $125,000 worth. Normal Narconons charge $30,000 for their service, I suspect this one charges more. Even at those prices, they needed a bailout…
This is the entry from Tony Ortega’s blog where he listed all the scientology entities that got money.
