Geir Isene leaves Co$
This in from Operation Clambake:

Geir is the most respected high level Scientologist in Norway, an OT VIII in very good standing. While he says he’s had an enormous amount of spiritual gain from Scientology, he’s now stepping forward publicly saying it has been in spite of the malpractice and suppression of free will by the Church of Scientology.

Needless to say, this is a big win. Read all about it on Geir’s new anti-Co$ blog.

The St. Petersburg Times may have actually strapped on a pair
And that can be a hard thing to do when you live in such close proximity to Flag. Haven’t had a chance to review it all myself, but it could potentially be some of the best stuff yet, and all the more powerful given this publication’s history vis-a-vis the Clammies. No idea if it’s actually new, but I’ve been out of the loop for a while, so it’s new to me.

Scientology leader David Miscavige is the focus of this special report from the St. Petersburg Times. Former executives of the Church of Scientology, including two of the former top lieutenants to Miscavige, have come forward to describe a culture of intimidation and violence under David Miscavige. These former Scientology leaders served for years with Miscavige.

Go see for yourself what looks to be a delicious exposé on The Dwarf and his cult: The Truth Rundown.

In an apparent act of retaliation,
Co$ has decided to begin placing ads on the St. Petersburg Times’ website.

And at least one Clearwater cop wasn’t on the $cn payroll
Now retired, he apparently accumulated thousands of pages of legal documents on the therapy cult, as well as A/V. Here’s hoping we’ll live to see some of it. Actually, here’s hoping he’ll live long enough to release it, now that he’s opened his mouth about it.

The Village Voice carries yet another delicious article about Scientology and Anonymous. Contains this week’s Xenuphobia Quote of the Week: “Taste the delicious bacon sandwich of truth about Scientology!”

Anonymous #2 wore a top hat and sunglasses, and said his personal mission was to alert onlookers of the “unfair” tax exempt status enjoyed by the Church of Scientology. At least 80 percent of all fees for “religious training and services” paid to the Church of Scientology are tax deductible, a privilege enjoyed by no other religion and a fact that does not sit well with Church critics. “They actually have a better tax exempt status than any other religion of all the established religions,” said Anonymous #2. While we spoke, he noted the presence of a very obvious camera in a third floor window of the Church across the street. That’s why he needs his sunglasses, he said. “They’re taking pictures of us right now, as we speak.”

Will Smith says he’s yet to drink the Kool Aid.

A spokesman for Smith told TheCelebrityTruth.com, “As Will Smith’s publicist I can tell you with 100 percent certainty that Will is not a Scientologist.”

And, not content with their epic YouTube fails, the cult has now launched its own video site–you know, because things haven’t been embarrassing enough for them lately.

The church announced on Monday the launch of a new online video portal at its Scientology.org Web site. The portal contains 82 videos tallying nearly 3 hours worth of content, “provid[ing] an overview of the basic beliefs and practices of the religion, as well as information on the many humanitarian programs sponsored by the Church–programs addressing drug abuse, illiteracy, human rights and disaster relief,” according to a release issued this morning. [Editor’s Note: Perhaps this means they’ll be suing themselves now?]

Enjoy, SP.

Did you need another reason not to watch “24”? I didn’t. But if you do, well, now you have it.

Clearing Teegeeack ($cientologese for “Earth”) is a tall order. Best to start with somewhere smaller; like, oh, say, American Samoa, which recently told the cult they can have their caek and eat it too. However, in this case, cake means billboards.

Fail of the Week: Scn flunks yet another legal maneuver. Can’t you fuckers get anything right?

DM needs to get his betchass under Nixon’s valence and call a goddamn plumber. Wait, isn’t that what the RPFers are for? Well, probably he’s too busy ironing out all the kinks in Hubbard’s “recovered” Yenta Tech.

Actor and Scientology dabbler, James Barbour, pleads guilty to sexual crimes with a minor:

Actor and Broadway star James Barbour plead guilty in court today for crimes stemming from an series of encounters he had with a 15-year old girl in 2001. Above is a video leaked of James at a Scientology event. Barbour became well-known for his portrayal as the Beast in the Broadway musical adaptation for Beauty and the Beast, but his off-screen actions are more akin to a real-life monster than a Disney fairy tale.

Scn targets University of Kentucky woglings:

Tonight at 6, students will have the chance to learn what all the fuss is about when it comes to Scientology, as the Student Activities Board hosts the next installment of its Faithbusters series in the W.T. Young Library Auditorium. Members of the Church of Scientology of Cincinnati will lead the discussion. . . . “SAB does not endorse or promote Scientology,” Bostic said. “By learning, (students can) perform their own decisions – therefore, they will have more educated opinions about it.” [Editor’s Note: How will they “learn” anything about it–LRH educational Tech aside–with no critics present to point out when TR-L is being executed?] More…
