Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath

Scientology Sea Org Member Taryn Teutsch Engaging in Fake News to Attack Leah Remini’s Show & Her Father Mike Rinder

Why is Scientology Sea org member Taryn Teutsch standing next to Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey at the recent YWCA GLA awards event? Lacey’s office is investigating multiple sexual assault allegations against Scientologist Danny Masterson. Taryn posted the photo on her twitter page alongside her attacks on her father Mike Rinder and Leah Remini’s show Scientology and the Aftermath.

Taryn Teutsch is a Scientology Sea Org member and the daughter of Mike Rinder. Taryn’s recent tweets suggest that she appears to be the front woman in an OSA operation designed to get her father fired from Leah Remini’s show Scientology and the Aftermath. This would not be the first time Scientology’s psycho-terrorist Office of Special Affairs tried to get Mike Rinder fired from a job. Read the story of what OSA did to Robert Almblad for giving Mike a job selling a new clean ice technology. Taryn never mentions this in her fake news.

Taryn Teutsch’s strategy is very transparent: She has recently appeared at women’s events. At one of the events she falsely portrayed her father as a man who assaulted her mother. Taryn’s mother is Sea Org member Cathy Bernardini. On her blog and tweets, Taryn asks Disney CEO Bob Iger to fire her father Mike from Leah’s show due to assaulting her mother. But that’s only part of the story. Taryn’s larger goal is to follow her boss’ David Miscavige’s orders and help get Leah Remini’s show taken off the air. Taryn’s real goal — as is that of Scientology — is censorship. Scientology’s demands its free speech while viciously attacking those who use their free speech to expose Scientology’s many evils including the use of child labor.

Taryn’s role is that of an aggrieved daughter. However, what Taryn is lying about, what she is withholding as she spins her Scientology treachery, is the actual story of an ill-conceived and poorly-executed OSA operation in 2010 that she herself participated in. Taryn hopes that people of goodwill — in many cases women who are themselves victims of rape — will take her wholly deceitful account at face value and not search online for the actual details or the police report. Taryn seems to be cynically playing on the sympathies of sexual assault and harassment victims in yet another sleazy Scientology Fair Game operation.

Here’s what really happened: Mike Rinder escaped from Scientology in 2007 with nothing but the clothes on his back and began a new life. He was publicly speaking out against the human rights abuses of the Church of Scientology and exposing Scientology brutal and sadistic leader David Miscavige. Scientology began a vicious campaign of Fair Game against Mike that has not let up for twelve years now.

In 2010, Mike Rinder took his then fiancee, and now his wife, Christie Collbran to the doctor for a nutritional consultation. Christie did these consultations on a routine basis. While Christie was inside the doctor’s office, Mike stayed in the parking lot to enjoy the beautiful Florida weather. He was standing next his SUV making phone calls. Suddenly, Mike found himself in a parking lot surrounded by a veritable lynch mob of angry Scientologists and their private investigators. The lynch mob included his ex-wife Cathy and his daughter Taryn. Mike picks up the story at his blog:

Cathy (my ex-wife); Taryn, my daughter; 4 senior church executives (Jenny Linson, Guillaume Lesevre, David Bloomberg and Sue Wilhere) — all from Los Angeles; along with my brother, Andrew who lives in Australia were despatched by David Miscavige to “confront me” in the parking lot of a doctor’s office in Clearwater, Florida.

I did not approach them or seek them out in any way.

Two PI’s followed me to the doctor’s office, along with these 7 people. They rolled in in 3 cars. To a parking lot not visible from the main road, in fact a considerable distance down a private road and at the back of a suite of doctor offices.  With the 2 PI’s observing from a distance, all 7 of them descended on me as I was talking on the phone waiting for my now wife who was at the doctor. I was aimlessly walking around in the parking lot while engaged in a phone conversation.

You will note that I asked that the police be called. Not my ex-wife claiming an assault.  The Pinellas Count Sheriffs interviewed the people who did not run away (the 2 PI’s, Jenny Linson, Guillaume Lesevre and Dave Bloomberg literally jumped in cars and fled the scene as soon as 911 was called and before the Sheriffs arrived) at the time of the so-called assault and they concluded these people had followed me and that the grazes on Cathy’s arm were “incidental contact” as I was trying to walk away from her and the others who had flown thousands of miles to seek me out. In fact, they issued a Trespass Warning on my ex-wife and the others as a result of this incident. But of course none of this information appears in the church “Dead Agent” material.

It’s all there in the Sheriff’s report Mike posted at his blog:

The Sheriff said there was “incidental contact” only as Mike was trying to get away from an angry group of people. The case was summarily closed. What we actually have is an eight year old event that Taryn Teutsch is spinning into a web of lies in a classic Scientology Fair Game campaign against her father Mike Rinder and Leah Remini’s show. This disgraceful conduct is to be expected from Scientology — but it gets worse.

In her latest Fair Game foray, Taryn ran in front of the cameras and tried to hijack Denim Day 2018 here in Los Angeles and turn the event into a propaganda attack on her father. Taryn is seen below standing behind the “Justice4Mom” banner holding her #FireMikeRinder sign.


The photo Taryn posted at her hyperventilating blog makes it appear that the entire Denim Day event was all about her. This leads us to ask what Denim Day is actually about; here is the official statement from Denim Day’s website:

For the past 19 years, Peace Over Violence has run its Denim Day campaign on a Wednesday in April in honor of Sexual Violence Awareness Month. The campaign was originally triggered by a ruling by the Italian Supreme Court where a rape conviction was overturned because the justices felt that since the victim was wearing tight jeans she must have helped her rapist remove her jeans, thereby implying consent. The following day, the women in the Italian Parliament came to work wearing jeans in solidarity with the victim. Peace Over Violence developed the Denim Day campaign in response to this case and the activism surrounding it. Since then, wearing jeans on Denim Day has become a symbol of protest against erroneous and destructive attitudes about sexual assault. In this rape prevention education campaign we ask community members, elected officials, businesses and students to make a social statement with their fashion by wearing jeans on this day as a visible means of protest against the misconceptions that surround sexual assault. — DenimDay.Org

Denim Day is a 19 year old movement whose goal is the prevention of sexual assaults against women. The Church of Scientology has absolutely nothing to do with Denim Day. However, in this year’s Denim Day event in Los Angeles, Scientology Sea Org member Taryn Teutsch injected herself and Scientology into Denim Day. Taryn disgracefully ignored the victims of sexual assault to whom Denim Day is designed to draw attention and support. Taryn turned Denim Day into another dishonest Scientology attack against those who speak out. Disgusting conduct.

This is not the first time Taryn has attacked her father. She has previously written letters to ABC 20/20 and Deadline Hollywood complaining about her father. Taryn also had made several hate videos about her father that are awash in the same lies she is still peddling. There was no domestic abuse Taryn; there was only “incidental contact” when you and your mother and fellow Scientologists ambushed your father in a parking lot. Tell the truth Taryn! And for the record: Leah Remini’s show offered to interview Cathy Bernardini, Taryn, and her brother Benjamin on camera. All three declined through their lawyer.

Memo to Taryn Teutsch: The real abuser in Scientology is David Miscavige. The real victim is his wife Shelly Miscavige who has not been seen in public for twelve years. Taryn, if you cared for the well-being of women you would ask David Miscavige why he locked away his wife. You would ask if Shelly was okay. Have you done this?

In this next photo we see Taryn hogging the camera again with her giant sign as she attempts to hijack Denim Day on behalf of Scientology:

******
In the tweet that appears at the opening of this article we see Taryn Teutsch tagging #ywca_gla. This is the YWCA chapter of Los Angeles. Stealing a page from fellow Scientologist Joy Villa’s playbook, Taryn is now, apparently, networking at women’s events. In the space of two weeks  Taryn appeared at Denim Day and then the YWCA event. Taryn appears to be positioning herself as a woman’s rights activist. This is bizarre when we consider the fact that Scientology is a Master Race group that calls humans “homo saps” and “wogs.” Scientology has no regard for human rights whatsoever and uses four unconscionable contracts in which Scientologists sign away their legal and civil rights

In my opinion, there may well be a ploy at work: Scientology is using Taryn Teutsch to infiltrate women’s groups in an covert effort to attack Mike Rinder and Leah Remini’s show. One of Scientology’s main tactics is to infiltrate groups of all kinds. The other tactic Scientology uses is called “safe-pointing.” In this tactic, Scientology spreads love and money around to influence various organizations. Scientology’s favorite is the LAPD, a police department that seems to be in bed with Scientology:

Taryn may be multitasking and engaging in both Fair Game and safe-pointing as it suits David Miscavige’s needs on any given day.

In Taryn’s next tweet from the recent YWCA Phenomenal Women event in Los Angeles she is seen hugging Denim Day/Peace Over Violence Director Patti Giggans; does Mr. Giggans realize Taryn is a Scientology Sea Org member on a mission that seeks to ultimately destroy her own father and Leah Remini’s television show by use of a demonstrably false narrative?


I wrote to Denim Day and asked for a response to this matter of Taryn using her blog and photos to co-opt the real meaning and purpose of Denim Day; Denim Day has not responded as of this writing.

Taryn Teutsch can try to spin an eight year old event to fit her fake Cult narrative, but the Sheriff’s report says otherwise — and Leah’s show is entering its third season.

Scientology TV: David Miscavige’s $4 Million Dollar per hour Vanity Project

______________________________________________________________________________________

We open our article with a graphic from Scientology TV:

STV.1

This graphic is taken from Scientology’s official website and informs us that Scientology TV launched with only 25 hours of original content (1500 minutes). This is hardly a number to brag about — particularly after Scientology leader David Miscavige spent about $100 million to purchase, equip, and launch Scientology Media Productions and Scientology TV.

David Miscavige purchased the old KCET studio in 2011, so we also must factor in the seven years of time he took to actually get his 25 hours of original Scientology TV content on air. Looked at from a business perspective, this is a terrible and inefficient use of time and money. Like the Ideal Orgs or the Super Power Building, Scientology TV is yet another money-grabbing and financially wasteful Miscavige vanity project which absolutely fails to address the real issues that are destroying the Church of Scientology from within and without.

The $100 million dollar number translates to $4 million dollars per hour for 25 hours of new content. This is an alarming cash burn figure for 25 hours of Scientology content that few people will ever watch or even notice. In terms of contrast, HBO’s Game of Thrones spent $15 million per hour for its final episodes, this according to a 2017 story in Variety penned by and The difference between Scientology TV and Game of Thrones is the return on investment. According to Forbes, 16.1 million people watched the first episode of Game of Thrones final season. Game of Thrones was crucial to HBO’s “$1.6 billion in revenue and $583 million in operating income during the first quarter of 2017” per the Forbes article.

While it is not realistic to expect something as mediocre as Scientology TV to compete with HBO’s smash hit Game of Thrones, it is realistic to expect David Miscavige to be a better financial steward of the donations made by Scientology’s parishioners. Miscavige’s profligate spend of $4 million per hour on content is excessive when we consider that Scientology TV is fundamentally propaganda that seeks to deflect attention away from the real issues of Scientology’s rapacious greed; its wanton exploitation of Sea Org members; the Cult’s use of child labor; and Scientology’s psycho-terrorist practices of Disconnection and Fair Game.

In their piece, Ryan and Littleton sum up the costs of contemporary television production:

At a moment when the television industry is grappling with a massive increase in the number of shows being produced, the ripple effects of Peak TV are surfacing in virtually every line item in a typical TV series budget.

Fueled by the rise of streaming heavyweights that don’t play by the same financial rules as traditional TV players, costs are soaring for everything from location scouting to renting equipment to securing post-production facilities…The estimates on the cost of content that emerged from these interviews peg the typical range of the production budget for high-end cable and streaming dramas at $5 million-$7 million an hour, while single-camera half hours on broadcast and cable run from $1.5 million to more than $3 million.

David Miscavige is spending big money like a Hollywood mogul. However, his spending will not result in the multibillion dollar annual earnings that successful Hollywood moguls deliver. Scientology TV will likely result in very little for the Church of Scientology except to mislead its parishioners into thinking that Scientology is growing and has surmounted decades of withering revelations about the corrupt and abusive practices of this “pay as you go” business that masquerades as a church.

Miscavige’s Scientology TV programming deliberately withholds Scientology’s space opera cosmology that is populated by Xenu, volcanoes, and body thetans. Scientology TV will also definitely never show the actual dollar costs of Scientology in which Scientologists must pay $500-$1000 per hour for auditing. At these prices, it is quite easy to spend $500,000 — or more — on your way up Scientology’s Bridge to OTVIII:

Scn.Price.List.6

This next Scientology graphic informs us that a Scientology Media Productions unit called “Central Ingest” receives 720 hours of raw footage everyday from Scientology shoot crews. This raw footage becomes Scientology TV:

STV.3

720 hours per day x 365 days in a year = 262,800 hours of raw footage that Central Ingest has to edit into original content to fill the 8,760 broadcast hours per year on Scientology TV’s 24/7/365 schedule. At $4 million an hour to create new content, Miscavige will be increasingly forced to cycle through the same content over and over simply to conserve cash.

Look at the bottom line: With a $4 million dollar per hour burn rate to create new Scientology TV content, 250 hours of content would cost one billion dollars. Scientology TV has the very real potential to bankrupt Scientology. Predictively, therefore, Miscavige will be forced to scale back his Scientology TV operation within a few months and reduce production costs to $50,000 per hour or less. I say this because, in its present form, Scientology TV is financially unsustainable.

Miscavige made his big initial investment in the Scientology Media Productions studio. However, this does not necessarily his mean his costs-per-hour of production time will go down. Television is an expensive business and Miscavige has had to bring in outside talent as the Sea Org simply cannot do professional television production on its own. Without professional outside help, the 262,800 hours of raw footage each year will quickly become a nightmarish backlog that has to be reviewed, scripted into a narrative, edited, and viewed for approval and release. Miscavige’s micromanaging style will also become a major bottleneck if he cannot delegate sufficient authority to release hundreds or thousands of hours of original content each year.

Scientology TV is all cost and no profit. Conversely, Scientology auditing is almost pure profit given Sea Org labor costs and the fact that all of Scientology Orgs are paid for. There are very little overhead costs for Scientology to deliver auditing. And of course IAS donations are pure profit as nothing is offered in return except cheap trophies.

Scientology TV’s initial performance has thus far targeted the safe low-hanging fruit, i.e. successful and non-controversial Scientologists: The banjo-making Deering’s; a skateboarder; a couple that makes custom lighting fixtures and chandeliers; and other innocuous people. Oddly, no Scientology celebrities have been featured. Conspicuously absent are Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Laura Prepon, etc. Even the Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss has been absent; this perhaps due to her less than charming behavior at the 2017 Emmy awards:

Elisabeth_Moss_Emmys

Once Scientology has picked the low hanging fruit then what? Will it show the gritty reality of bankrupt Scientologists such as Richie Acunto whose $10 million dollar IAS Scientology trophy ignominiously wound up for sale on eBay?

Will Scientology TV do an episode on how everyday Scientologists write Knowledge Reports on each other in the snitching culture of Scientology? Will Scientology TV show how female Sea Org members are not provided with feminine hygiene products and must pay for tampons and such from their earnings of .50 cents per hour or less? When will Scientology TV tell the real truth about what Scientology actually is and does?

Scientology TV very predictably went on the attack against Psychiatry and Psychiatric drugs. Anyone could see this was coming; likewise we also knew that the phony PR stories and fake heroics of Scientology’s Volunteer Ministers would be a part of the broadcast equation. Very predictably too were the stories of how The Way to Happiness saved Colombia.

Yet when will Scientology TV showcase Scientology’s notorious Office of Special Affairs where all of Scientology’s psycho-terrorist Fair Game operations are planned and managed? When do we get to see actual Scientology salespeople pressure Scientologists into going another $40,000 into debt to raise their IAS Patron status? When do we get to see a Scientologist solo auditing their body thetans for an hour or more everyday behind a locked door in their home?

The answer is that we will never see the cruel and miserable realities of everyday Scientology.

All that we will we will ever see on Scientology TV is Scientology PR; its attacks on Psychiatry; fake news from its phony front groups; and Nation of Islam members who have become practicing Scientologists. Scientology TV is nothing more than Cult TV.

In the final analysis, Scientology TV is David Miscavige’s $4 million dollar per hour vanity project meant to burnish his legacy within the insular confines of Scientology. The Scientology dictator made sure everyone knew Scientology TV was his baby when he shamelessly featured himself as the centerfold in a four-page wide photo-spread in the recent edition of International Scientology News:

The photo was taken at the LRH Birthday Event at which Miscavige announced Scientology TV. Miscavige can be seen behind his podium onstage at the center of the photo. He is surrounded by his adoring and euphoric throngs who can’t believe that Scientology finally has a TV channel a scant 71 years after DuMont, ABC, NBC, and CBS began broadcasting in the period 1947-1948.

America’s first big religious broadcaster was Bishop Fulton J. Sheen who began airing his show in 1951; this was the same year L. Ron Hubbard fled New Jersey for Wichita, Kansas after his first Dianetics Foundation went bankrupt and he was facing criminal charges in New Jersey for teaching medicine without a license. That Scientology is 70 years late in adopting television broadcasting is nothing new. Scientology spent tens of millions of dollars to build and open a 276,000-square-foot book-publishing factory in 2009 when paper books were racing into digital form on Kindle, tablets, and pads. Scientology’s Bridge Publications is still selling books and DVD’s in 2018. The Dianetics Kit sells for $75.00 and yet it points to a serious problem:

Scientology TV cannot broadcast anything contained in the Dianetics Kit or in any other products sold by Bridge Publications. To do so would cut into the revenues of Bridge. The hope of Scientology TV, therefore, is to get people to buy Scientology goods and services. And yet at $75.00 per Dianetics kit, Bridge Publications would have to sell 53,333 kits to offset the $4 million dollar cost of one hour of new content production by Scientology TV. This will never happen. Thus, one can begin to see the intractable problems created by David Miscavige’s extravagant and wasteful spending on Scientology TV. The man is truly fiddling while Rome burns.

Despite these glaring problems, the fawning prose describing the event when Scientology TV was announced to the faithful was downright embarrassing and helps to explain why Scientology is a Cult:

DM.STV.Praise.1 001

The schedule for Scientology TV this weekend from Friday, April 6, 2018 at 6:00 PM through Sunday, April 8, 2018 shows the highly repetitive programming that will quickly become the major pitfall of Scientology TV — this unless David Miscavige commits to huge burn rates of cash in the millions of dollars per hour to churn out new content. Seen from this perspective, the Ideal Orgs were a much better grade of failure for David Miscavige as they at least left Scientology owning real estate. In the case of Scientology TV there is no tangible return on the investment. Of course, Scientology claims that its TV channel will “boom” Scientology. However, the Cult says this same thing about all of its scammy cash-grabs: GAT I, GAT II, the Basics, Ideal Orgs, the Super Power Building, etc.

Below: This weekend’s Scientology TV schedule is shown on a PDF. The schedule repeats episodes on Scientologists Binod Sharma; James Speiser; a mother who became a media consultant; and The Way to Happiness. Sunday night features an L. Ron Hubbard marathon in which the Founder can be heard droning on at length in his various lectures. Does it get any more exciting than this?

Mike Rinder, Church of Scientology’s Former Spokesman On Fair Game & Season 3 of Aftermath

Scientology’s Fair Game puts the lie to Scientology TV. It does so by drawing the attention of the public to the fact that it is business as usual inside of Scientology. Mike describes how David Miscavige orders his OSA minions to do something about Leah’s show and how this results in actions that are irrational and actually harm Scientology by exposing its sleazy Fair Game tactics.

Mike then recounts the series of events that led him to escape from the Church of Scientology. This leads into a conversation in which Mike describes the internal justice system of Scientology and why the Church covers up sexual molestation and the other crimes and misdeeds committed by Scientologists.

Mike ends by talking about the Aftermath Foundation and how it exists to help Scientologists get started again in life after fleeing Scientology with literally nothing.

Hysterical Scientology Cult Plays Victim Once Again. Wall Street Journal Assists in the Psychodrama.

DM.Dictator

Even as Scientology has the explicitly stated goals to destroy Psychiatry, take over the world, and conduct a genocide against 2.5% of the global population, the militant Hollywood-based Cult is once again playing victim.

This time, Scientology’s bogus “STAND” group — a group populated by several fake Scientologists who are actually nothing more than phony names and stock photos — is demanding that sponsors boycott Leah Remini’s Emmy-winning show Scientology and the Aftermath.

A recent Wall Street Journal article covering Scientology’s call for a boycott is shockingly sloppy. Without bothering to substantiate even one of Scientology’s claims, WSJ columnist  Alexandra Bruell uncritically quoted this bit of Scientology hysteria:

“Leah Remini’s hate campaign of religious bigotry in its first season alone generated more than 400 incidents of harassment, threats of violence and vandalism against our churches and members,” reads one letter from STAND, dated from August and addressed to Geico’s assistant vice president of marketing Bill Brower. “The threat level has again risen, precisely coincident with A&E’s promotion and airing of the second season of this show, now spawning even more threats—bombings, murder and acts of physical violence.”

Alexandra Bruell apparently couldn’t be bothered to ask for even one shred of hard evidence from Scientology in the form of police reports, threatening e-mails, or any other substantiating proof. Instead, Bruell simply repeated Scientology’s claim. This sort of lazy journalism is highly offensive to the victims of Scientology and serves only to tarnish the reputation of the Wall Street Journal. I actually wondered how this unvetted story got by WSJ editors.

In 2009, Scientology complained to the “Freedom of Religion and Belief in the 21st Century Project” that is was being persecuted. While never disclosing its ties to this so-called Commission, Scientology nevertheless made the same cookie-cutter complaints about Anonymous that it is now making about A&E’s Scientology and the Aftermath:

Since January 2008, the Church of Scientology has been subjected to a continuing campaign of violence and abuse from a hate group calling themselves ‘Anonymous’. This entity has been described as a group of “cyber terrorists” as its actions have previously focused on Internet harassment and other crimes. However, in the last 13 months they have also (i.e. as well as their internet based assaults) committed acts of harassment and criminal offences “in real life” against the Church, its members and Church property. Anonymous members have made numerous bomb threats, arson threats and committed acts of vandalism against Scientology churches. They have made harassing phone calls, sent vulgar and threatening faxes and e-mails, painted graffiti, posted threats on the Internet and publicly threatened to kill Scientologists engaged in religious services.

Scientology offered no evidence in its 2009 allegations and it is offering no evidence now. No Scientology churches have been bombed and no Scientologists have been murdered. This is all phony posturing to which Scientology resorts whenever it feels the heat of being exposed for its depravity.

We hasten to point out that Scientology now has hundreds of hate websites and webpages up on Leah Remini, Mike Rinder, and everyone else who has spoken out on Leah’s show. Even as Scientology spews all manner of hatred, calumny, slander, and viciousness it paints itself as a victim. This hypocritical and loathsome behavior is yet another reason Scientology is correctly called a Cult.

Those of us who are long-term Scientology critics have seen this sort of Scientology hysteria and bloviating before. As mentioned, the phony Scientology 2008 soap opera about being persecuted by Anonymous is being replayed in 2017. This time Scientology is the victim of Leah Remini and her guests.

The 2008 hysterics began early on when Scientology launched a barrage of stories in which it claimed to have received anthrax in its mail at multiple locations. Scientology worked to insinuate that this was the work of Anonymous. However, many of us suspected this was a staged event conducted by Scientology’s Office of Special Affairs. The FBI got involved and nothing became of the matter.

Of course, Scientology never mentioned that it spent millions of dollars on private investigators to stalk, follow, and harass members of Anonymous, many of whom were high school and college students and lived at homes with their parents. Scientology PI’s got license plate numbers, took photos, and identified as many members of Anonymous as possible. Scientology attorneys then sent letters to the parents of Anons claiming their sons and daughters were members of a terrorist group. The fascist goal of Scientology in sending these letters was to terrify parents into demanding that their sons and daughters stop protesting Scientology’s human rights abuses and criminality.

In one threat letter sent to an Anon, Scientology attorney F. Wallace “Wally” Pope walked back the anthrax attack story and called it a “simulated anthrax attack.” Pope then demanded that the Anon cease and desist protesting. Pope characterized peaceful protest — which is a form of free speech — as “engaging in violent acts against the Church or its members.” How dramatic! Here is part of Wally’s letter:

Wallys.Letter

Wally Pope’s letter threatens to refer “the names of persons to State and Federal authorities” if these persons do not cease and desist protesting. This seems both extortionate and illogical; if Pope indeed had evidence of criminal activity then he should have immediately turned it over to the authorities. However, Pope had no evidence to turn over so he made a baseless threat in an attempt to muzzle free speech.

Even as Scientology screams persecution, it simultaneously engages in its work to destroy Psychiatry; destroy families through Disconnection; exploit Sea Org for slave labor; defend its use of child labor; destroy its own members financially; and engage in the rest of its psycho-terrorist cultic agenda.

Even now in 2017 Scientology continues to peddle its lie that Psychiatry was behind the Nazis and is also behind extremist Muslim terrorism:

Psychs.7.png

The Wall Street Journal failed to tell the whole story. In doing so, the WSJ did a disservice to all of the people who are bravely speaking out against the unabated horrors of the Church of Scientology. We hope the Wall Street Journal will correct this error and report the entire story.

Scientology Doubles Down on its Tax-Exempt Social Media Fraud

Scientology tax-exempt fraud at work: After being being publicly exposed and shamed for using stock photos to create phony Scientologists to attack Leah Remini, A&E, Leah’s guests and everyone connected to Leah’s Emmy-winning show Scientology and the Aftermath, the Scientology Cult is now doubling down on its social media fraud.

There is no Scientologist named Alicia Selverson. And yet the Church of Scientology uses this stock photo image to pretend that Alicia Selverson is a real Scientologist who belongs to a Scientology propaganda group called STAND.

There are also no Scientologists named Eva Band, Ellis Craig, Rebecca Blair, or Catriona McKenzie. These fake people are STAND members. Astute Scientology watchers, particularly @kellykels_melbs on Twitter have done much investigatory work to uncover Scientology’s social media fraud and smear accounts:

The poster Love Infusion on Twitter made a post showing that the stock photo of the faux Scientologist “Catriona McKenzie” was used on a book cover:

This is deceptive advertising and yet Scientology routinely engages in fraud and deceit so what’s new?

Well, what’s new is that real Scientologist Gemma Harris is on Twitter claiming these phony “Stock Photo Scientologists” are real people:

Gemma Harris claims these “real people” are using fake names and stock photos to hide their real identities because they want to remain anonymous:

When did Scientologists become timid little people who hide behind fake names and photos? L. Ron Hubbard wrote:

“When somebody enrolls, consider he or she has joined up for the duration of the universe – never permit an ‘open-minded’ approach… If they enrolled, they’re aboard, and if they’re aboard they’re here on the same terms as the rest of us – win or die in the attempt. Never let them be half minded about being Scientologists… When Mrs. Pattycake comes to us to be taught, turn that wandering doubt in her eye into a fixed, dedicated glare… The proper instruction attitude is, ‘We’d rather have you dead than incapable.’”

– L. Ron Hubbard, KEEPING SCIENTOLOGY WORKING, 7 February 1965, reissued 27 August 1980

Scientology took Anonymous to task for being cowards who hid behind masks. Now it seems Scientology has become… Anonymous. By Scientology’s own logic, then, anonymous Scientologists are cowards who are not willing to publicly speak out using their own names. These anonymous Scientologists have no confront and are completely caved in and PTS to their environment. This is why they go into hiding. Hiding is very low on Scientology’s Tone Scale. It is barely above Total Failure:


Not exactly a glowing endorsement for Scientology: Why spend $500,000 to become an OT who hides and is barely above being a Total Failure?

Scientology has officially become the Church of Victimology where all Scientologists are victims.  As I always say, “Scientologists can dish it out but they can’t take it.” The Scientology Cult has plenty of malicious hate websites up on brave and good people who have exposed its depredations. However, Scientology’s hypocrisy demands that it cast itself as a victim when it is exposed — and this even as it cranks out hate websites, lies, and even fake Scientologists.

The latest gambit by Scientologists is to claim that Leah Remini’s show is making them fear for their safety and that of their children. This drama queen soap opera is what L. Ron Hubbard called the “Dangerous Environment Racket.” In this particular decades-old Scientology scam, Scientologists create a propaganda message that there is a dangerous environment for them being created by whoever is exposing Scientology’s horrendous abuses, lies, and brutality.

These next two screenshots posted below were obtained by Aaron Smith-Levin and show us a Scientologist engaging in the old “Scientologists are being persecuted just like Jews in the Holocaust” fraud. This is an outrage, and, it is part of Scientologist’s standard playbook when they want to pretend to be victims.

See my post: Scientologists Are Not Jews in the Holocaust.

In the course of acting like a Jew in the Holocaust, this Scientologist is actually covertly engaging in censorship by demanding that others in a gym not be allowed to watch a television show this Scientologist finds offensive:

Scientologists Use Secret Facebook Groups to Call for Increasing Censorship Against Leah Remini & All “Anti-Scientology” Media

Rather than honestly considering the many criticisms leveled against the Church of Scientology, Scientologists ignore the facts and instead call for increasing levels of censorship as the answer. This is both delusional and unrealistic in a free society. Nevertheless, censorship is the only answer the Scientology Cult has to its critics.

A leaked post from a secret Scientologist-only Facebook group calls for more censorship:

The Facebook entry above shows the cultic mindset of Scientology:  Censorship of all things critical of Scientology is the answer! The Church of Scientology will never consider reform. Rather, due to the Master Race doctrine at the core of Scientology, the Church of Scientology wants to impose its will upon the world and force the world to conform to Scientology’s deviant ways. Founder L. Ron Hubbard expressed it this way:

“Somebody some day will say ‘this is illegal.’  By then be sure the orgs [Scientology organizations] say what is legal or not.” — L. Ron Hubbard, Hubbard Communications Office Policy Letter, 4 January 1966, “LRH Relationship to Orgs”

Scientologists are indoctrinated to reflexively attack as “entheta” any negative views of their church.

The Church of Scientology cannot rebut the eyewitness accounts offered by former Scientologists such as Leah Remini, Mike Rinder, Marc Headley, and more than a thousand other former Scientologists who have publicly spoken out against the brutality and greed of the Church of Scientology.

There are dozens of books and blogs written by prominent former members of Scientology.

Left: Marc Headley’s Blown For Good is an excellent read. A former Sea Org member, Marc’s eyewitness account of life at Scientology’s secret “International Base” is remarkable.

Many Scientologists have left the Church in after years or decades of their thoughts being policed by the Church in security checks, i.e. interrogations.

Thought-stopping is a primary cult mind control technique of any authoritarian cult. Scientology excels at it due to its use of the e-meter as a polygraph.

Scientologist Engages in Bigotry & Censorship; Brags About It

https://i2.wp.com/static1.squarespace.com/static/5547d221e4b057da64c24e49/55483246e4b01318c0a9c0fc/578d5950197aeab03635cd64/1479788874146/dreamstime_m_36278787.jpg?resize=503%2C336

There are numerous stories from over the years in which Scientologists have stolen books from public libraries that were critical of Scientology. This was done so that you and I would be not able to read these books. And now this type of abhorrent Scientology censorship has happened again.

https://i2.wp.com/pbs.twimg.com/media/DIeh4ABVYAY7CJ3.jpg?resize=254%2C339&ssl=1Lean Remini was on the cover of People magazine this week. A story making the rounds on social media tells us that marauding Scientologist Marilyn Berdon walked into her neighborhood Target store and saw Leah Remini on the cover of People in the magazine racks at the checkout stands.

Marilyn Berdon was deeply offended. Accordingly, Berdon engaged in an act of Scientology bigotry and censorship.

Scroll down to see the post Berdon made to her fellow Scientologists in which she bragged about what she did to trample on your rights to read whatever you wish to read.

Why did this Scientologist take it upon herself to destroy the rights of the public to read whatever we choose to read? Worse, Berdon encouraged her fellow Scientologists to engage in destroying your civil rights by imposing censorship and acting to destroy publications of which they do not approve. This is yet another reason why Scientology is correctly called a mind control Cult.

And what if the opposite action has occurred? What if a non-Scientologist removed all of the Scientology books from a public library, demanded that the library destroy the books, and then openly boasted about it? Scientologists would scream to high heaven. It is easy to see Scientology’s hypocrisy: A Scientologist feels she has the absolute right to censor what you may read, but you may not censor Scientology in any way whatsoever or you are a hater. Hypocritical Scientologists.
