If you listen to any of the statements that emanate from the bubble, whether from the mouth of Dear Leader himself, or other minions, they shout from the rooftops how the “ideal orgs” are “the turning point in the universe” and “the salvation of this sector” and are “bringing about planetary clearing.”
Of course, everyone outside the bubble knows its garbage, but it isnt often we get this sort of report from INSIDE an “ideal org.”
And not just ANY ideal org, but the much ballyhooed “ideal org” in the “first Scientology city” — Portland. You will recall Dear Leader yanked their
chain ribbon last year with grand announcements about how important THIS ideal org is in the Scientology world. They pretended thousands showed up for the ceremony and covered them up with potted plants and sicced mad dogs on Mark Bunker to prevent him recording the words of the Great Man.
Then a couple of days ago I posted that pitch from Jeremy Arezzini about the importance of ideal orgs supporting the IAS and how Portland was going to set the standard (or some such platitudes). How much bs was that? Massive.
That prompted a Special Correspondent to pay a visit to the Portland “ideal” org to see what was up. And to take some shots of what it’s REALLY like inside the org. Remember now, nobody shouted “SP in the building” so everyone scattered and hid (funny how all the graduates of the how to handle and shatter suppression run and hide when Tory or anyone else shows up). No, this was a tour of the building to show off the magnificent “ideal org” — apparently they have been so brainwashed about the importance of the MEST, they are not even embarrassed about how the place is empty — or maybe this was really a good night by their standards.
Here is the report and photos to follow:
We thought some of you might be curious about what the Portland Org looks like from the inside. Well, here you go!
We were given a tour top to bottom around 7:00 in the evening. And the story is: it’s a beautiful building. And they have a great view of Portland from the top deck. Of course we know what the real problem is – BEAUTIFUL MEST, NO PEOPLE!
Going down through the center of the entire building is an atrium. We were told that it cost “millions of dollars” to retrofit the building to code to preserve the atrium.
There are 6 floors in the building. On the top floor is a little coffee area, some other admin function and the outside deck. There was 1 staff sitting there.
The entire 5th floor is the HGC and Purif. We saw one auditor talking to the DofP. No sign of any PCs. Auditor admin area empty. Nobody in the Purif.
The 4th floor is course rooms. Completely empty. It is for “future expansion”
The 3rd floor – more course rooms but these are the ones in use. We saw about 12 people on course and 1 sup.
The 2nd floor is basically a café and admin.
1st floor of course is the bookstore and sterile public video extravaganza. There was a receptionist and bookstore officer but no public.
There were staff here and there wandering around the building. Maybe we saw 10-12 staff. I wouldn’t call any of it “in action”, not even close.
So there you have it – we were calling it “The Beautiful Zombie”.
