One of the saddest lessons of history is this:
If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle.
We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth.
The bamboozle has captured us.
It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken.
Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.
This seems to be an appropriate quote to sum up the state of these “OT Ambassadors.” While many OT Committees now send out their “minutes” hard copy to try and avoid them falling into the hands of the small handful of unemployed bitter defrocked apostates on the fringes of the internet, some of them are still doing it the new fashioned way.
This is a selection of some of those that have come in. Many now say virtually NOTHING in the interests of “security.” It is funny how they cut their reach in order to prevent the activities of their PUBLIC from being “found out.”
Let’s start with some minutes from CC Int. Honestly, their explanations and justifications for “Why Valley” have become incredibly strained. I wonder if any of them realize that they are telling themselves that VALLEY will “service many industry professionals*” when that is the ONLY job that CC has? And they are just a few miles down the 101.
*Unless of course they are referring to the only real industry in the Valley — porn.

CCI OTC MEETING HIGHLIGHTS & ANNOUNCEMENTS
At this week’s meeting, the group re-read the section of the new OT Ambassador program regarding Ideal Orgs and discussed where Valley Org is in regard to the steps on the program. All that is needed from the field for Valley is to complete the fundraising for renovations!
The Public Officer CCI briefed the group on the importance of Valley going Ideal. Valley Org will service many industry professionals and in that regard will help bring public into CCI. It will also provide a service org that is in alignment with the Golden Age of Tech II and the boom that all the on Source services are creating.
Afterward the group discussed ways to assist the efforts of Valley and concluded:
1. There will be a dinner/event every Friday through the summer into the fall. We will continue to contact people via call-in and promote these events on our comm lines to get more people to them. At these events, attendees will be shown the exact plans for Valley and enlightened on the importance of getting this org Ideal.
2. The group is working on contacting young families to get them briefed about Valley. This org is a particular boon to families with children as it will provide child care and services for children while the parents get auditing & training! This is a very wanted thing among young families.
3. The group will come up with ways to contribute to Valley OTC fundraisers including supporting their C-Note Sundays, raising funds with give-aways on-line and helping with large events. We are going to offer to run a silent auction at their next event.
The Pub Off also briefed us on performers and speakers lined up for Gala. It will be an outstanding night! We made plans to have at least one OTC table.
THIS WEEK’S OTC EVENTS & PROJECTS:
IDEAL ORG DINNER: There is an Ideal Org dinner event at the home of Bonita and David Wilson this Friday night at 6 pm. All are welcome and all are asked to spread the word and help confirm.
CAUSE RESURGENCE EVENT: Sunny Jensen is speaking at an event about Cause Resurgence this Friday from 6 to 7 pm in the Theater. Dinner will be served so people on course can attend.

Here is some hot news from Tampa:

Subject: Tampa OT Committee Meeting Minutes – 22 July 2014
Tampa OT Committee Meeting Minutes

Tampa Org’s target is being met, but still a little to go – so keep the flows coming!!!
Marlin Anderson recruited 5 new volunteers from the Sunday OSA event at Flag.
Saturday Aug 9 BACK – TO – SCHOOL Bash for the Tampa area. This was a lot of fun last year. I/C and volunteers needed. If you have ever said that you would help Marlin, this is when he really needs someone,
Volunteers needed to hand out TWTH booklets with Mike Cardin this Sunday 9-11 am. Everyone who participates has WINS doing it. District #3 is almost completed! That is about 1/3 of all Tampa!!
Marlin is discovering more and more the effects of TWTH: It is now being used at Peak Academy. The Principal gives a book to all the new students. If a child gets in trouble – he/she watches a precept. One boy with anger issues watched the indicated precept and came out saying, “I realize that I looked at this all wrong” and has never been a problem since. TWTH makes a difference!!
We will be labeling TWTH booklets at the next meeting. Remember doing that for the Repulican Nat’l Convention a couple of years ago?
This Sunday 10 – 6:30 at Fort Harrison Auditorium: The Way To Happiness Seminar; Joy, Satisfaction, Happiness, Purpose. This is the seminar to put it all within your reach. $125.00

Help out with Call-in and promo needed. More info will follow, but please promote this to all you know. Wed night lectures are short, full of data, and FUN! If you were around when we did this before at the Habana Org, this is what we want to create again. If you were not, then you are in for a treat!
Reshowing of IAS MV event:
7 pm Friday
1 pm Sat and Sunday
in Div 6-C, the Chapel and HGC
#3 this week and #10 cumulative. This week looks promising with 2 Clears made and highest ever SRD co-audit hours.
End with LRH quote.
Minutes by Deborah Otto
This, let us not forget is the MODEL Ideal Org and St Hill Size Org and is a remora that exists only because Flag has so many rejects they will not service and scientologists have kids that want to get out of their hair. 7 books sold qualifies for an exclam. Exclam!
And here we have the newest Pasadena OT Committee stats and breakdowns. For an Ideal Org, this isn’t much activity. And they don’t have many people on their OT Committee — active or inactive.

And then the latest Pasadena OTC Quarterly Report….
From: Aster8 <Aster8@outlook.com>
Sent: Sat, 2 Aug 2014 08:59:20
Subject: [OTC-Mail] How well did you do?
The OT committee prepares quarterly reports on our production which go up the lines to Int. Management. The last report was for March, April and May. Here is a summary of your production as an OTC on GAT phase II and on the Golden Age of Knowledge courses. (Note: In order to collect this data I rely on your weekly OTC reports and upon completion logs that are maintained by the Pasadena Org.)
In general, we have been very productive as an OTC. Very well done! Here is a summary of the report:
* Actions taken to help Scientologists in your field to fully avail themselves of the Golden Age of Tech Phase II training and processing.
The most effective enlightenment actions have been showings of the event where GAT II was released, and wins expressed by course graduates. Pasadena had 38 GAT II completions between February 27 and May 29, 2014. The OTC produced 39 GAT II starts in this time period, by either routing onto service or by helping others get started. Out of these starts, 18 went to the Pasadena Organization, and 21 additional starts went to other organizations.
* Helping Scientologists in your field onto and through the Basics Books and Lectures to get ready for Golden Age of Tech Phase II.
The Pasadena OTC has conducted a steady campaign of contacting Pasadena public through emails, letters, and direct contacts. This has contributed to 77 GAK course completions at Pasadena in the last 3 months (32 GAK course completions at Pasadena were by OTC members). The OTC produced 39 GAK training starts to Pasadena (either by routing onto service or by helping others get started), plus 7 additional starts at other organizations.
One more individual completed the full lineup of Basic books and lectures. The Pasadena Organization now has 58 people who have completed the full Basics lineup. Furthermore, 9 ACC courses were completed by OTC members in this period.
Wow, these are some stats.
The Pasadena IDEAL org managed to completed 38 people on ANY GAG II service in 3 MONTHS. 13 completions a MONTH!
And in total, since 2007 and the release of the “Basics” this IDEAL ORG has managed to get 58 people through the “full Basics line up.”
AND they have less than 100 OTC Members (many less if you only count the “active” ones) though it is interesting to note how many ex-SO and ex-GO are on their list (probably because Executive Software employed so many of them, Craig Jensen was the DG Legal US at one point).
All this for a mere $20 million investment.
The only consolation here is that this is a better return on your money than giving it to the IAS. They don’t even produce these sort of feeble results.
