The most important weather predictor I learned as a child in Chilliwack was, “If there’s snow on the Prospector on the Queen’s Birthday, there’ll be a flood.” “The Prospector” is a slash on the south-western flank of Mt. Cheam, or on the saddle between Cheam and the mountain to its south. (Is that Mt. Thurston?) The old prospector has a pack on his back and is kneeling, panning for gold I guess. Here’s a photo that shows his shape pretty clearly: … [Read more...] about Prospect of a Flood
I posted the below comment to Tony Ortega’s blog today. It appeared that it propagated, and I think I saw ten “likes.” But now my comment isn’t there and “Disqus” says it was “Deleted as Spam.” “Disqus” also says, “We have received your request for review,” although I made no such request.

I knew Louise on the “Apollo.” I knew her being Treasury Aide during most of that time. Aides’ posts came with a lot of seniority, and she also had Sea Org rank and experience on me.

Tony Ortega posted today: Past is Prologue 1998: Gerry Armstrong posted a declaration this week describing Scientology’s private investigator tactics. “A San Anselmo Police cruiser pulled up in front of my car with its lights flashing. The officer driving the cruiser ordered me to stay in my car, and then within a minute or so approached my car to communicate with me. He told me that a woman had made a report at the San Anselmo Police Department that I had chased her. The officer told me … [Read more...] about San Anselmo cop op
Dear Mr. Miscavige: In a recent article “1950 Shades of Pinks and Greys: Was L. Ron Hubbard Drugged Out When He Developed OT III?” published by your academic collaborator Massimo Introvigne, as I’m sure you know, one of your other collaborators Ian Camacho made the claim that asking your organization or you or your organization juniors to produce a certain letter would create for you, et al. a “lose-lose scenario.” Asking the Church of Scientology to produce a copy of the letter creates a … [Read more...] about To David Miscavige: Request for Production
Scientology cult collaborator Massimo Introvigne has published a new article “An Endless Controversy: L. Ron Hubbard’s “Affirmations,” which is free to read, parse and laugh or toss cookies at. [1. https://cesnur.net/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/tjoc_5_6_4_introvigne.pdf ] Introvigne pretends he has proven that: there is no evidence that [the Affirmations I posted in 2000] is anything more than a fake document written either by [me] or another anti-Scientologist, and not even a very bright … [Read more...] about L.
