OK, so the truth is outing now.
New Era had a surplus of DVDs, so they are shipping them instead of booklets. That’s a bit strange, as every request for money has been to ship “booklets” and to buy “bundles” at no discount….
Now, the “success” is coming from “DVD’s” — but really there is NOTHING to show for this except a couple of anecdotes from the always unnamed “officials” and “teachers” who “like it” and “want to use it”…
And isnt it strange that the majority of distribution has been “primarily in the Crimea region” (factually, no longer a “region” of Ukraine) and yet they could not even scrape together a single unnamed “success” from that area, but instead find TWO “successes” from a small town as far away from Crimea or Kiev as you can get and still be in Ukraine.
The con goes on.
I bet NEP is using the money suckers donated for “Ukraine” to unload deadstocks and the next thing we will see are a couple of “successes” about how they shipped reel to reel SHSBC lectures to “Opinion Leaders” in Ukraine and in one library the librarian exclaimed that they had never seen anything like this before and though they could not understand what was being said, they surely contained brilliant things.
Which leads me to wonder whether the DVDs they are shipping to Ukraine are in Russian or Ukrainian? Or English? Or maybe they had a few Spanish and Italian ones left over…

From Robert Vaughn Young —
RINDER WAKES UP
Let’s jump ahead a few years when I was in a deposition in Denver, in the FACTNet case. The usual goon squad was there, including Mike Rinder, who proudly heads up the criminal Dept. 20 where Scientology’s felons are produced. Rinder was struggling to stay awake in the corner while the cult attorney was going through a list of names, wanting to know if I had spoken with any of them. Rinder’s head was bobbing as the attorney asked monotonously, “Pat Broeker?”
I glanced at Rinder. I had to enjoy this one.
“Yes,” I said.
I couldn’t have gotten a faster reaction with a bucket of water. Rinder jumped awake and looked at me in shock, fear and hatred. I smiled.
The questions about my involvement with Broeker were routine, from a list that they asked for each person I named but Broeker wasn’t routine. They soon stopped to take a break. Like the good sock puppet that he is, Rinder dashed out of the room, obviously to call DM. (I so wish I could have watched DM’s face too.) About 15 minutes later, Rinder returned and shoved some questions at the attorney and the depo continued. But little was gained and not one question was asked about what Pat might have told me about Hubbard’s death, if he had at all. They clearly didn’t want it on the record, under oath. I found it amusing, this great powerful cult was so terrified of the subject, not to mention Broeker.
So let me tell you a little bit about Pat: he’s doing fine and his sense of humor has improved. End of a little bit.
Mike Rinder says
I don’t recall ever “banning” anyone though I have edited some comments and admonished people. Maybe I have but this doesn’t qualify.
He’s right about falling asleep. Two hours sleep a night average will of that to you.
He’s wrong about Broeker. Obviously that was known about before asking him (remember there were PIs on Broeker for 20 years).
RVY often assumed to know things and assert them in an authoritative manner that were not true but were not easy to spot as lies unless you knew the same facts.
He was not a clumsy liar. He could put together very plausible sounding assertions to support whatever he was seeking to prove. He developed some of the most effective lies about LRH because he knew what was an “acceptable truth.”
So, I am sure there was a break in the depo, I am sure I “woke up” when there were things of interest (no doubt him admitting this was of interest) and I am sure at some point there were notes passed to the attorney. The rest is his faulty conclusion but sounds credible and unless the PIs had subsequently come out nobody would know who to believe if I had now said this was not true. It would have been his assertion against mine.
(I thought I might have crossed the line there. Glad I didn’t. It’s interesting getting your take on that incident.)
Robert was no SP or psychopath He was one tough son of bitch. Highly educated, and ex-marine, and at one time a dedicated Scientologist. He reminds me of some modern apostates. And like them, he suffered beatings and imprisonment.
And Broeker and those P.I.s for 20 years, I wonder who was running who. He was “007” don’t forget. He’ll talk someday. Then I’ll find out whether he was a skilled Intelligence operative personally trained by LRH or not.
I’m not waiting for Pat to come back and save us all. The church is dead. It just has to finish bleeding out. I would like to know what happened though . I was there in ’86. I left for several years, came back and found the church had transformed into a monstrosity. I’d like to know why.
Mike Rinder says
Thanks. I agree RVYT was no psycho. He was smart and a good writer. I always got along well with him when we were in the church.
Pat wasn’t any “personally trained” intelligence officer. He did “think” he was 007, but he was more like Austin Powers.
What makes you so sure he will “talk someday”? The longer it takes the less relevance he has and the worse his memory of events will be. He is given to long-winded, rambling story telling. And that has been the case since I first met him in 1973 when he was the Finance Banking Officer on the Apollo.
Where were you in 86? Do I know you?
I don’t know about that. I’ll ask Pat about that the next time I see him. That “dreamworld” happened because of FO3879 . It wasn’t forged. I was written by Ron.
There’s a lot of bad stuff written about Pat and I believe little of it. What i know for certain is the bad guy won. If RVY was still around maybe he could clarify it. And Pat’s still around. He might.
I’ve read similar accounts to what Pierre wrote about Mary Sue. The truth is very difficult to find. But what ever happened to Mary Sue was vile.
Mike Rinder says
Yeah, well tell him Hi from me.
Did you actually KNOW Pat in the Sea Org? What are you reaching your conclusions based on?
RVY couldn’t clarify anything for you. He was sitting at ASI writing Ron Mags when everything went down. He was not privy to most of the activities.
I don’t disagree that the “bad guy” won, but Big P is little different from Little D — just degrees. And DM always was smarter than Pat.
As for Mary Sue, read Marty’s accounts of this. What was done to her WAS vile. But that was mostly LRH’s doing. He is the one that threw her under the bus. Believe me, without his sanction nobody had the authority or nerve to take her on, not even Miscavige.
“Which to me proves conclusively that Miscavige is technically a lying sack of shit.”
Hay RV, that attachment to your post is something. Miscavage’s natter and generalities against Mary Sue are eye-opening This is the “Coup” or :Cabal” at work. They got rid of Mary Sue and then went after the rest church including Ron. A special thanks to that prick Ray Mitoff. (He ended up in “The Hole”. I hope he stays there a few more lifetimes.)
My homeboy Robert Vaughn Young was involved (we’re both Mission of Davis alumni). Too bad he hooked up with that nutcase Fishman. But he was on the right side of the “Pat Broeker Affair” so all’s forgiven.
Here’s a picture of “The Cabal”.
Mike Rinder says
Sorry, but there is virtually nothing that is accurate about Pierre Ethier’s conclusions. Because he was a Class XII at the FSO doesnt mean he had ANY knowledge of what went on with LRH and MSH and the other things he offers up as “fact”. He is so far afield on much of this that I hesitated to even approve your comment lest people click on the link and think it is recounting actual facts. What do you mean RVY was on the right side of the Pat Broeker Affair? You do understand don’t you that the two biggest co-conspirators in the “cabal” as you call it were Broeker and Miscavige? Miscavige ultimately won out over Broeker strictly because he was smarter, and used tax attorneys to threaten Broeker into silence because he could not account for hundrefds of thousands of dollars in cash that had been handed over to him (by Miscavige). The dreamworld picture of Pat Broeker as some sort of hero is very ill-placed. I am certain the entire subject would be merely a dim memory by this time had he “won.”
the notion that miscavige is not that bright i think is a big misconception some people might have.
lack of education and intelligence are different things. from what i can tell, miscavige has a lot of natural intelligence.
that doesn’t mean he is mature or doesn’t let emotion get in the way of being rational. but he is far from a dummy. he would have made a good gangster or politician.
Mike Rinder says
He is VERY intelligent, though his ability to utilize his intelligence is diminished by his increasing isolation from the real world. The more he lives inside a bubble, surrounded by sycophants, the less his intelligence is useful.

I wonder how many people refuse to participate in Way To Happiness campaigns once they learn it’s linked to Scientology.
To quote Clint in Gran Torino: “You don’t wanna know!”
This report is no more believable than the one about Dublin, or Columbia, or India, or the Philippines, or Ground Zero …
I’m an idiot, this was supposed to be a bunch of smiley faces in response to hgc10’s comment above.
if those DVDs are so important to civilization why don’t they just stream them 24/7 on the internet?
then then would only have to distribute urls.
it’s an even exchange for me to give them money to “give” these DVDs to someone else?
why? what do i get out of it?
answer: “well you get…………..”
oh ok, so then doesn’t scientology get that same exchange if they just donated the DVDs themselves?
is it ok if i donate a link a scientology’s website that the mayor of that town can click on to watch the WTH instead of sending him a hard copy?
this is not the 20th century, getting information like TWTH to people is as easy as setting up a blog.
i’ll print the whole WTH text right here. i’ll upload the videos to youtube right now (isn’t it already up?).
i’ll go talk to a bunch on people in that town right now…….yeah that’s easily done these days……..and we’ll disseminate that stuff in five freaking minutes to hundreds of thousands if not millions people.
why isn’t it a fair exchange in scientology to make the entire tech available to the entire world for free and in exchange scientology gets a cleared planet?
sounds like a fair and even exchange to me.
do you know what kind of media presence an organization can have these days that literally has billions of dollars?
mike if you had about a billion dollars to spend on this website, do you think there’s much you can do with it?
ship DVDs? nonsense is one thing, no sense is another.
And all the while the “church” distributing them ignores and violates the principles contained therein…
I bet a lot of this stuff ends up in the equivalent of peoples garages, like the Congresses and Basics packages. How do they distribute them? Does a pallet just show up at the Org there?
“… he realized while watching Chapter 10 that it shows the solution for unemployed people in his city.”
Oh god, I can’t imagine what that would be. Dispose of them quietly and without sorrow, perhaps? Seriously, what kind of numbnutz thinks that TWTH has the solution to unemployment. That’s like finding a fully functional space ship in a cracker jack box.

I have to laugh. 🙂 The insane criminals claim they get their idiot pamphlet distributed to schools some how yet if you look, every time a parent actually finds out about it the school gets in trouble, so much so that schools are aware that it’s a Scientology fraud.
Enough schools have been sued by parents whose children were subjected to the attempted fraud that schools got the word out, they talk among themselves, they pass along information about criminals attempting to defraud schools, and now these mobster crims can’t get *any* school to take their stuff unless it’s dropped off in the dark in secret in which case it gets sent to the recyclers.
Got to love these insane crooks’ endless efforts to force their dimwitted customers to keep handing over o=money to purchase these frauds which end up in the trash.
Roy Macgregor says
David Miscavige takes one step down after another, into some kind of sleaze hell. Selling off old stock Mark VII’s while the new ones sit on a shelf. Then demanding people just turn in those same meters he just sold them for destruction, while charging even more for the new meter. Regging donations to buy up worthloss and unwanted old DVD stocks and sending them to country where they can’t be understood. Step after step after step. What he does not realize is that deeper he goes the fewer people there are behind him. Every step down he loses a few more people. He creates another little lie for people to stumble across and each time a Scientologist stumbles across one of these lines it shakes the cognitive disonance for a moment. They are living in the matrix, and every once and while the picture flckers. As he does more and more sleazy things, the picture flickers more and more often. Only the most sleepy and most delusory can keep the picture in focus.
Old Surfer Dude says
Roy, great post, my Celtic friend. I stil can’t understand why these people are following him! BTW, I’m a Celt too! Arrrrrggg!
Yes, some contrary facts. Planetary Unit shipped DVDs but, towards the end the promo states, ‘the campaign continues placing the booklets in the hands of…” So, do we have booklets or DVDs? Make up your mind.
Also, they were able to ship them due to the “support of donators around the world”. Really, from around the world? Guess they gathered several 1,000s of dollars but used only the 0000.01% for a few booklets and low price shipment. The rest goes into the shore accounts of C.of.$.
Mike Leopold says
General School #2 looks suspiciously like Ocean FM headquarters.
Has there been an 85% reduction in Russian forces in the Ukraine, I wonder?
Detlef Ruchatz says
I find this Planetary Dissemination issue 44 to be seriously confusing. At the top left are the Dianetics and Scientology symbols, yet it promotes the distribution of the Way to Happiness, a secular moral codex, which has nothing to do with Dianetics or Scientology. The Planetary Dissemination Unit is part of CSI or Bridge Publications or New Era Publications. (I think this changed over the years, but it is for sure part of the Sea Org, run by Captain David Miscavige) Yet, the distribution of the Way to Happiness is the job of The Way to Happiness Foundations, which falls under ABLE. According to their own publications, the IAS is also claiming to support the distribution of the Way to Happiness and in particular the Teacher’s manual for TWTH, which is mentioned in this newsletter. How come, the Planetary Dissemination Unit puts out an issue, as if this is financed by them (and vice versa)? It might be a good idea to show this issue in one of the law suits against the church. Maybe the church lawyers can explain all this and show exactly, who is financing what. I am also eager to hear, how all those different entities have indeed nothing to do with each other, especially ABLE, which also happen to run Narconon.
Do you mind, Detlef? This is all supposed to be confidential.
I really don’t know if a small pamphlet on common sense moral values would ever do anyone any good. I’m pretty sure that evil people would use it to point out the faults in others while financially, emotionally or even literally stabbing them in the back.
What I know for sure is when I see miscavige extolling the value and virtues of The Way to Happinenss, I can’t get the image out of my mind of the little shit smashing Jeff Hawkins head against a filing cabinet.
“What I know for sure is when I see miscavige extolling the value and virtues of The Way to Happinenss, I can’t get the image out of my mind of the little shit smashing Jeff Hawkins head against a filing cabinet.”
I always liked “The Way to Happiness” CD but how do I reconcile that with Miscavage beating Jeff?
All you people “still in”, OSA included, how can you let that little monster destroy your church and all you believe in?
Unfortunately Miscavige and his Scientology wrecking crew control OSA FKA GO under current Exec Strata.
(An LRHED which not only is junior to Policy but is only in force for a year unless reissued or converted to a PL ref: HCOPL Issues; Types of)
In other words the myth about “abolishing” the GO is just a myth. What they basically did was place it under new management and change its name after getting rid of anyone (“plants”) who objected to the junta AKA CMOI.
So I doubt if they’ll be of much help unless they leave with as many dox as they can get their hands on or like Mike with a smart phone full of text messages exposing the dictatorial by pass of org lines or “hey you” style of “management” of Miscavige who claims under the penalty of perjury that he is not involved day to day operations of the Church.
(Which to me proves conclusively that Miscavige is technically a lying sack of shit.)
Of course the above is just my *opinion* based on my *own* research of the scene.
More germane to the discussion here since we are dealing with what is known by CIA as FSU (the “Former” Soviet Union) which is now involved in a dispute with a “Former” KGB Officer who probably has the FSB FKA KGB involved in the altercation.
I mean if those involved in the Church of Scientology were smart they’d stay out of this dispute until the chips fell in whatever direction they may.
But it seems they are following the directions of the State Department or CIA and seem to be supporting the fascist element who oppose the Putin’s efforts to resurrect the former Soviet Republic.
In other words neither side is worthy of any support and should not be supported.
Again my opinion based on my own research.
DM’s response to the Jeff Hawkins incident: “I am simply applying the senior policy ‘We always deliver what we promise.'” ML, Dave
Thanks LDW, for pointing this out. Just looking at Dwarfen-Fuerher makes me think the exact same thing. Jeff Hawkins’ book helped me so much during my “dare to look” phase.
Mike’s post and all the comments are cracking me up. I worked at TWTH Fdn. I never understood how dumping a bunch of printed material in an area could magically create peace and goodwill. I guess that is because it can’t ! It was nice meeting you last May.
In other words DM is a 1.1 = covert hostility, says one thing and does the opposite.

Are the DVD’s subtitled in Ukrainian? If we’re talking surplus I would guess this stock was originally intended for good ol Americans. I looked it up and I guess about 5 to 10 percent of the population that speaks English. I guess those are numbers are quite acceptable to the Führer. After all, they wouldn’t be interested in any downstat peasant class, they want Flag public. They’ve got a new LRH Hall to fund… the next big thang!
Mike, you crack me up so much. This is one of the funniest and wittiest posts ever and all your others are great too! I laughed out loud over all of it. But also I got mad that the church unloads overstock somewhere and charges the suckers top dollar for that. Your wit just slays me.
Time for COB’s team to rescue Malaysia Airlines Flight 370
Perhaps the Moxons should use their super OT exteriorisation powers that previously saved the Earth from alien forces about to destroy it.
And here is Moxon’s response: “What’s in it for me?”
Old Surfer Dude says
tampabayjack, I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s asking for money to send Vulture Ministers to search for Flight 370!
Maybe they’ll disappear too. Cross your fingers.
I don’t know if they’ll disappear, but the money certainly will.
I’m unclear on what this DVD campaign has accomplished in terms of “the situation”.
I guess (it will be claimed that) it would have been much worse. Or something.
I’m surprised they’re not claiming to have averted nuclear war thanks to David Miscavige’s rapid deployment of TWTH.
Capt COB surely will, grathuln: “We sent them WTH and the world war was averted.”
Yes, if the scene is stabilized thru negotiation and the peace talks or whatever serve to put Putin in his place, the Dwarf will take credit for it at the next Int Event and his dumb sheep will feel smug about being sheered. “Yes, we in Scientology really are shaping the world”. Oh my God.

Doesn’t matter what language they’re in (if they’ve even really been sent).
They will be used as coasters. And they do make very good coasters. So there’s that.
They also make snazzy bike reflectors and rearview mirror decorations. I hope they were at least in the right video format.

They ought to donate them to the grape growers and vintners association to use as bird reflectors. Odds are these new super powered DVDs would have even more of an effect on the birds because of their toxic message.
Hopefully they would not damage the grape crop!
