If you've read Dianetics, can you give one example of a Clear that can stack up to LRH's description of a Clear, almost 60 years later, even though LRH and Miscavige claimed to have made improvements over all the intervening years?
..we have this hilarious pile of fluff that was dug up and posted to YouTube this weekend. Make sure you watch it quick, before David Miscavige's minions have it yanked down. Speaking of diminutive Dave, he can be seen right at the front of this "We are the World"-type singalong that was put together in 1990...all around him are some famous names from Scientology's past and present: At the 2:40 mark, you'll see everyone together warbling their guts out. Our tipster provided the following playbook:
To her right -- Ray Mithoff, Former Inspector General for Tech RTC, reported to be in The Hole.
To his right -- Mark Yager, Former Inspector General for Admin RTC, reported to be in The Hole.
To his right -- Mark Ingber -- Former Commanding Officer of CMO = Commodore Messengers Org, reported to be in the Hole. To Ingber's right and behind him, Mike Rinder Former Commanding Officer of OSA, currently blown and speaking out against the cult.
Front and Center -- David Miscavige [the little dude] wearing weird Hermes/goatse shirt. To DM's right and behind him -- Heber Jentzsch, Former President of the C of S, now reportedly in the The Hole.
To DM's right -- Greg Wilhere -- Inspector General, reportedly still working for DM. To Greg Wilhere's right-- Marty Rathbun, Former Inspector General for Ethics RTC, now out and speaking out against the cult as well as running the "Independent" Scientologists. To Marty's right -- Guillaume Lesevre Executive Director Int. reportedly in the The Hole.
I remember that it was done for one of the events and I think it was IAS anniversary event that was going to be in October. It may have been for an earlier event. It was done to show all the "Wins" and "successes for the year and the song was sung by a Scientologist singer named David Pomeranz. Charles Lake is the Gymnast and had just been on the Olympic team that summer that is why I think it was for the IAS event in October. I remember that the idea was to have all of International Management sing the chorus ala We are the World and DM thought the Scientology public would get a big kick out of it. All of the RTC Inspector Generals were in the front with DM and his wife Shelly and the Executive Director International Guillaume Leserve was there too. Then behind was the rest of RTC and the Watchdog Committee. I recognize many faces in the crowd. We recorded it in the Music Studio at the Gold Base and we are all looking at Peter Schless who is conducting the singing. Schless was a Gold Musician and his prior claim to fame was co writing the Jefferey Osbourne hit song "On the Wings of Love" from the 1980s. Me personally, I had just been put back working for David Miscavige again after a stint of manual labor for disagreeing with my wife being sent to the RPF. I however shortly after this video blew the base for good after 2 attempts. Almost 21 years ago.
Sing-a-Long Scientology Video Surfaces Maureen O'Connor — Ooh, look, another propaganda video from Hollywood's favorite cult, the Church of Scientology! This one appears to have been filmed in the early '90s, and features a fascinating shot of Church leader David Miscavige singing a Scientology hymn with his old cronies. The Village Voice reports that this guy, in the "weird Hermes/goatse shirt," is Miscavige. The lady at left is thought to be Miscavige's mysterious wife Shelly, who has reportedlybeen missing since 2006. To her right are two former Scientology bigwigs now thought to be "in the Hole," a manmade purgatory the New Yorkerdescribed as "a pair of double-wide trailers" south of Los Angeles, where misbehaving Scientologists are made to do "group confessions all day and all night." If it weren't for all the disappeared people, this silly Scientology sing-a-long would be nerdy/fun. But since three-quarters of its cast is allegedly missing or "in the Hole" these days, it's just creepy. [Village Voice]
Former Miscavige Assistant Mark Fisher:
Blow - To blow means "to leave without permission" or "to leave before something is completed". One can "blow staff", "blow course", "blow session", or "blow the org". It is a very, very serious offence in Scientology to blow. People who leave without permission in this way are usually declared. [source]
‘Hilarious’ Scientology sing-along highlights the cult’s sad reality
If there’s one thing religion reporters, cult experts and former cult victims know about Scientology is that this cult is better at producing utter nonsense than any other so-called ‘New Religious Movement’ out there. Unable to get much, if any, serious coverage in legitimate media outlets, Scientologists produce a constant barrage of ‘press releases’ praising the Church of Scientology for its marketing efforts — which more often than not are thinly disguised as ‘humanitarian campaigns,’ ‘disaster relief,’ ‘anti-drugs education,’ and what not. Meanwhile the ‘Church’ tries hard to convince its members that it is doing exceedingly well, and that they are part of something truly special. Hence the organization lies to its own members much the same way it lies to the public at large (e.g. by claiming that it is the ‘fastest growing religion of the 20th century’). The result is spooky to say the least — a fact adequately demonstrated by Tom Cruise in his infamous Scientology video. Recently another video — apparently meant for internal consumption only — became public. It’s a Scientology sing-along: What makes this video, produced in 1990, noteworthy is what happened to many of the Scientologists ‘standing tall.’ Apparently many of the famous Scientologists in the video are no longer ‘standing tall’ for the cult. The publishers of Religion News Blog support freedom of religion, but we also highlight cases where religions — real or not — fail to live up to their own ideals.
Additional, Exhaustive Detail (for those of you who care)
90% of these people are blown or gone, maybe more.
Martin Uvizl - (second tallest guy in BG hubby of HGB LRH Life Exhibit reception girl. Notorious for hooking up with the blonde hotties. Was married at Int to a hot busty blonde girl named Mellissa - NOT to be confused with his new wife Lissa Uvizl. Mellissa routed out shortly after jogging down LRH Way with no bra. trufax)
Claudia Olander (still at Int - gained some serious weight- too bad, so sad)
Linda Stanton (dead?)
Sherry Murphy (still at Int? Son lives off of Barram in LA)
Mike Stutter (Is on damage control/causing team with Marion Pouw - go around telling people how awesome Davey Tiny Fists is while looking like death warmed over themselves. Mike has skin condition that makes him look like someone who just walked off a George Romero film set.
James Byrne (in PAC? Wife Inid died a few years back)
Ken Delderfeild (went to PAC RPF from Int for hiring hookers when down in LA printing Scn Books)
Hara O'hare (maybe still at Int -Was washing dishes after getting busted out of RTC - Her hubby Kevin was in PAC last week walking down the street next to Big Blue. Son Brendan is still at Int and was Building 50 Maintenance guy)
Darnelle Bloomberg - In RTC - Divorced hubby on orders from Dave and then got back together after turned out divorce order to entire RTC was "just a misunderstanding" Darnell is Lou Stuckenbrock's sis.
Barbara Griffin - Still at RTC - Is Treas Sec and HATES DAVE with a passion. She knows where all the money goes and know waaaaaay too much to piss off. Dave put up with her as he knows she does not have much time left.
Noelle North is laughing Diantetics PC - you might know her as the no subs for kids Subway aggressive lady.
Phillipe De Henning - Dianetics Race car driver. Was real big in Scientology because he was supposedly the most awesome Le Mans race car driver ever. Turns out he has been in 40 races and podiumed once. ehh.
This video was edited heavily a few years back to take out pretty much everybody who was in the first one. Charles Lake - the guy that is posing with John Travolta and the cake was olympic gymnist. Dave had him taken out cause it turns out he liked guys - A LOT.
Lady next to John in video is not Kelly Preston (She was busy getting shot by Charlie Sheen when this video came out.) Fun Fact - Kelly's best role was in awesome movie - Amazon Woman on the Moon - get it - watch it. She is the girl with the rubber buying kid.
New E-meters were released and a new one is still to be released so that footage was taken out.
All Saint Hill Size orgs were bullshit, also all the people that Dave gave awards to in that video are long gone.
John Woodruff - Orange County Saint Hill Size Winner ED busted and left staff after DM found out Orange county stats were all False Reported
Wiebke Hansen - Hamburg Saint Hill Size Winner ED- Busted after DM found out all Hamburg Stats had been false reported went to Int RPF and has been painting sets in Sets & Props at Cine Castle every since.
Debbie Cook - Captain FSO - Blew with hubby after Dave found out she hated him. She is out of S.O. but still in good standing - Knows WAAAAY too much for Dave to piss off at this point. When she spills beans, prepare for Epic fail.
Fun Fact - Champagne bottle for Freewinds ribbon cutting shot was pre-broken. Real bottle would not break no matter what when trying before shot. Bottle was pre-broken so that when it hit it actually shattered. Scilons are all powerful beings but nobody wants that mad mojo on your failboat for bottle not breaking.
New video is equally lame but new cheesy shots put in. [source]
