The latest and greatest in the scientology world.
The professional Scientology Network disseminator kit….
There is ALWAYS something “new” that is the “next big thing” in scientology.
This one seems particularly lame. Like something you might see in a Regraded Being cartoon, or the “secret decoder ring” in a cereal box.
What is this? Who knows? But one thing for sure, it is not going to accomplish ANYTHING…
BTW, for fun, Christie and I tuned in to scientologyTV for a bit the other night. What is so remarkable about it is that it is all hat and no cattle. It’s well shot, lit and edited. But it doesn’t SAY ANYTHING about scientology. It is entirely “come on” and I cannot imagine anyone doing anything other than shutting it off in disgust after watching for a few minutes. Really lame stuff about “Brian the electrical contractor in Las Vegas” and all you see is glamor, staged shots of installing lights in various high end shopping centers in Vegas. Or a show about the “Melbourne ideal org” that shows more about the city and Australian Rules football than it does about anything scientology related. Who wants travel shows from scientology?
ScientologyTV has cost them tens, if not hundreds of millions of dollars – the cost of the studio, the cost of shooting and editing the videos and whatever they are paying to keep the garbage on the air — for nothing in return other than the internal PR value “we are reaching billions with our message and they are all curious.”
In a perverse way, it’s good to see some much time and money wasted on such a useless exercise because it does nothingBetter than it being devoted to “destroying SPs.”
You can help! See Mike’s blogpost – how to find your political representatives with suggestions about what topics to bring up to them that may get their attention. We thought about creating a template for people to use but based on some good community input, decided that templates probably aren’t too effective.

A good introduction to scientology at the beginning of this video, lol, 🙂 : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FEADB8deeok
What’s Ulf going to do with his cigarette lighter if he doesn’t smoke?
Oohh, wait a minute, could it be there is also ten Kools from Tubby’s private stash from the 1960’s so, “You too, can also be like L. Con and feel the nicotine and smoke increase your intelligence and calm the BT’s surrounding you with soothing smell of menthol.”
Sue T. says
I hate to tell you this, Ulf, but Scientology is just as toxic a brand in Sweden as it is in the U.S.
I’ve mentioned this many times in my life but it is probably one of the better lessons of life from the past. Napoleon Bonaparte once uttered, “never disturb an enemy while they are making a mistake.” Even though he met his fate at Waterloo, that little man shook the world at that time.
Scientology with its delusions of grandeur about ScientologyTV and having to have something new every five minutes in their attempt to attract attention is a big mistake. Their PR along with their greed and ineffective, over manipulated and screwed up so called “applied technology” absolutely sux! They truly have nothing to offer along with all the glitz. Scientology, like their WTH booklet doesn’t make people happy. Quite the opposite if you care to look.
Hubbard’s once luster, now tarnished black concerning the hope and dreams of a better world has run its course of deception and like his fictional character Soltan Gris from his Mission Earth series, all the money in the world didn’t help avoid his demise.
It is my sincere hope that the IRS and all those local councils and city officials where Scientology Orgs are located realize that the demise of the provable criminal organisation of Scientology will create a huge windfall for their coffers in unpaid property and other taxes.
Jere Lull says
True, but they are still drawing in a very few suckers they can suck dry, and the “religion angle” serves in entirely too-good stead for the organization in those jurisdictions where actual religions hold some sway. Sadly in the US, we can’t define them as “not a religion” due to an ironclad portion of our Constitution’s Bill of Rights. I’m pretty sure that negating the First Amendment is NOT in everyone’s best interests, but I sure would like to come up with an actual definition of “religion”,or possibly the UK’s “means test” for charities trying to obtain tax exemption. Make scientology WORK to get that privilege. Of course, they’ll just pull another fast one like, IIRC, Australia.
Well, my only reply to this is that people are likely too embarrased (sp?) to say anything more about this. After that judge made his big deal decision and threw those victims into the teeth of that unfair machine and the creeps got all excited saying, “We Won! We Won!”, how can anyone feel like they had some victory?
It’s all just an empty horror show now. The only interesting piece of news left to come is the death of Shelly. That may well generate some interest. But aside from that, the only piece of news left to come will be the death of this phony cult.
This cheating machine can just go and screw itself now.
To Hell with them and their phony victory!
Because they spent so much money on youtube ads for their network their were able to pressure youtube into deleting my channel w/5 mil views over “me too” movement sexual takedowns that had NOTHING to do with my channel. Aka a video had the word “breast” in the title. By spending money to PROMOTE the do nothing network they gain power over people like google. See also: taking out full page anti-Going Clear ads in the NYT to pay off the paper to shut up about them. It was practically the only ad in the paper that day and it was full page. Offering to buy up all kinds of billboards in LA if a billboard co would only DENY doing business with anti-sci billboard buying SPs.
So the network does have a purpose, but it is not visible on TV.
Dead Man Talking Bill Straass says
AGP. Your channel should be the very last to be deleted. You are the man, the one who knows what the fuck is going on.
If there is anything I can do to assist you just name it and it will be done.
A $5/month donation would help cover my monthly $20 Cloudflare (internet anti-hacking security) to protect my website. It does nothing to stop yt takedowns though.
Mine is the first to be deleted ALWAYS (3 times!) because they clearly view it as a seriously watchable threat. Nobody calls the Sci Network “seriously watchable”.
Thanks so much Nana!
What! You mean Scientology doesn’t work!? The hypnotized subjects on stage are still clucking like chickens!!? Cluck cluck cluck ! 😉
Jere Lull says
Clucking like Chickens?? More like croaking like frogs, and rotting from the head, COB. Jon Atack got it right when his “Comm-Ev” found the Dwarfenführer® guilty of many high Crimes. The pint-sized dude never could make it in the real world if he didn’t have his minions arrayed around him as protection against answering for his crimes. I wonder what it would take to spook him enough to retire to Belgravia even with the scientology-derived funds he controls. I’d love to watch him TRY to control things like he likes without the “religious” armor.
There is one outcome that we can always count on in countering bad leaders: inevitable death. It works all the time. It’s science!
A person has to set aside so many other ideas and wisdom in life, to settle for the Hubbard view of things.
And Hubbard never lets up with wordage and lectures weaving all over the place, ultimately wastefully of people’s time and interest.
In the end no “Operating Thetans” have emerged, no supernaturally improved humans have come off of the Scientology Hubbard assembly line, who then do spectacular good things in life across society and gain society’s praise and appreciation.
When I was sitting in the RPF, at Happy Valley and my RPF twin was finishing up some parts of the PTS Rundown pseudo-therapy Hubbard quackery on me, while in session I pondered for long stretches of time about the above. That Scientology in all my 20 plus years, at that time, hadn’t gained societal praise for SCientology producing people who were supernaturally soul improved causing the world to notice and praise spontaneously.
It is sobering to realize Scientology’s core practices are not producing what Hubbard promises, and keeps the followers hoping those promises will someday achieve.
It’s not happening, nothing supernatural is occuring by the unleashed soul capabilities of the highest Scientologists. Nothing positive like Hubbard falsely promises, is happening.
Hubbard left the members holding the bag. Holding up the false promises and goals.
Scientology feeds off people’s false hopes. Not that the hopes are bad, but they are false hopes if the followers expect Scientology’s pseudo-therapy and exorcism practices to result in the uninformed world’s praise back at what the world rightly sees as Scientology NOT doing the Hubbard job.
The Scientologists are left holding the bag of this impossible task of achieving the Hubbard false promises by doing the Hubbard quackery pseudo-therapy and exorcism.

Hey Mike, you may have missed my email about your “Recent Tweets” sidebar on the blog. It’s not displaying correctly because the URL has an extra “/” — (https://twitter.com//). Just remove the backslash and all will be well.

Thanks Denny. It’s a change in Twitter. The Plugin that generates this is working on a fix.

This is absolutely hilarious. I wrote a similarly themed blog post last month at PseudoScientology.us, “The E-Meter … Scientology’s answer to the “Magic 8-Ball.” Let the laughter continue😂😂😂😂😂😂

“You may rely on it”
I’m betting it’s an App that allows you to easily insert links to Scientology sites and esp their awful TV channel into your social media, when using your ‘phone.
Next, they’ll be giving away CLEAR bracelets in boxes of Cracker Jacks.
All of this idiot-proofing automation, same as the no-human-interaction intro videos, has one underlying principle – all you CICS’s are just too damn stupid to do it right, so I have to spoon-feed you the words so you can just repeat them, because otherwise, you’ll just F everything up, you stinkin’ SP. I seem to remember reading something about that quality in a person, something actually in Scn’s own literature. Hmm, someone who is convinced that everyone around him is out to screw him over. Now what was that exactly …
gv, I think it’s also sort of scapegoating for the decline in recruiting that started with the waning of the counterculture youth movement. Hubbard couldn’t accept that there was waning interest in his mid-century space opera pseudo-science in combination with fewer young people who wanted to drop out to follow gurus and join cults, and so rather than trying to adapt to changing circumstances blamed everyone from young staff to SMERSH, and then finally the mission holders.
Miscavige has carried on the blaming of staff – many old-timers originally scapegoated by Hubbard – in particular, and the fantasy that somehow the same old dated ideology and “tech” could be sold at “correct order of magnitude” to new generations if the recruiting rituals were just observed perfectly, like a magical spell. So he’s trying technology, video kiosks and a streaming channel, to fix what he sees as a people problem, that’s really a market problem of the same sort snake oil salesmen ran into a century ago, when people began to have improved access to effective and scientifically proven medications, and the “patent medicine” peddlers became widely recognized as charlatans and scammers.
