  • The Google Cult’s Sex Abuse and Mandatory Abortions--“I was fired from my team… because I raised the alarm about a cult within Google.”

    When Texas intervened to protect vulnerable children against transgender child mutilation, Google was one of the companies to sign a letter warning that preventing child abuse was "against the values of our companies." A recent lawsuit provides a small insight into just what the Big Tech giant’s “values” might be. Recently a former Google employer filed a lawsuit accusing the company of discrimination. “I was fired from my team there in February of 2021 because I raised alarm about a cult within Google, a group called the Fellowship of Friends. The group is well-documented: There are allegations of child abuse,...

    NEW YORK -- A jury has found that Richard Rojas is not responsible for plowing his car through a Times Square crowd in 2017, killing an 18-year-old tourist and injuring several others, due to mental illness. Deliberations began on Tuesday. Rojas, 31, faced numerous charges in the case, including murder. Alyssa Elsman, 18, was killed and 22 others were hurt in the 2017 crash. The defense said Rojas has a history of mental illness. He pleaded not guilty. The decision means Rojas qualifies for being committed instead of being sentenced to prison. Rojas was ordered to held while he is...
  • REVIEW: ‘Top Gun: Maverick’ Is An Incredible Pro-America Film

    “Top Gun: Maverick” is an absolutely outstanding movie. After not having time to catch the highly-anticipated sequel when it was initially released, I finally made my way to the theater Sunday afternoon to watch Tom Cruise return as the iconic fighter jet pilot Maverick. Ladies and gentlemen, the film can only be described as pure patriotism. The plot is very simple. Maverick has been tasked with training some pilots to take out an unauthorized nuclear reactor in an unnamed country. While the country is never named, it’s clear that it’s Iran for multiple reasons, including weapon capabilities, old aircraft and...
  • Scientists Have Identified What Triggered The World's Biggest Climate Catastrophe

    Artist's impression of the catastrophe. (Katrina Kenny © 2022, author provided) Some 252 million years ago the world was going through a tumultuous period of rapid global warming. To understand what caused it, scientists have looked to one particular event in which a volcanic eruption in what is now Siberia spewed huge volumes of greenhouse gas into the atmosphere. However, there is evidence the climate was already changing before this. Sea surface temperatures had increased by more than 6-8 ℃ in the hundreds of thousands of years leading up to the Siberian outpouring. Temperatures increased again after it, so much...

  • How Believers in the Paranormal Birthed the Pentagon’s New Hunt for UFOs

    03/08/2022 6:58:42 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 15 replies
    In Oregon, a man said his health deteriorated after a glowing blue orb passed through his body. A family in California reported strange lights and a gray figure with spindly legs in their orchard. A werewolf-like creature allegedly prowled around homes in suburban Virginia. All three incidents were probed as part of a secret Pentagon program investigating UFOs. The program, contracted by the Defense Intelligence Agency, plumbed the connection between the flying objects and the paranormal for two years, according to the men who ran it. It was the beginning of a years-long effort by UFO advocates that eventually led...

    For several days we have been communicating with a new source who claims to have devastating inside information about the current state of the Church of Scientology... When the pandemic struck, the Church’s response was a program which laid out “protocols” that all staff and all public Scientologists had to follow. These included wearing a mask and gloves at all times while not in your own home, as well as other rigid mandates, some of which bordered on impossible to follow. The most ridiculous mandate was that the staff of Class V orgs had to keep a statistic of “Number...

    ...After he saw our story on the “Chase Wave,” he wanted us to know that something very similar happened to him.... If you remember, we posted a document sent in by a new source who said it was a step-by-step instruction sheet that Scientology’s “registrars” were given, explaining to them how to lie to Chase credit card operators in order to open up new credit card accounts for cash-poor Scientology members, and then max out those cards with Scientology charges in order to saddle members with huge debts. The “Chase Wave” involved opening up a series of different Chase cards...

    EMBEDDED LINKS TO REPORTS AND SNAPSHOTS AT SITE: Over the past 14 years, the Central Intelligence Agency has secretly amassed credible evidence that at least 10 of its employees and contractors committed sexual crimes involving children. Though most of these cases were referred to US attorneys for prosecution, only one of the individuals was ever charged with a crime. Prosecutors sent the rest of the cases back to the CIA to handle internally, meaning few faced any consequences beyond the possible loss of their jobs and security clearances. That marks a striking deviation from how sex crimes involving children have...
  • Evidence that Scientology is still taking Sea Org women to clinics for forced abortions

    One of the most shocking revelations about Scientology abuses, and one of the best documented, was Tom Tobin’s masterful reporting in 2010 about the church’s decades-long policy of forcing women in the Sea Org to undergo unwanted abortions. We consider it one of the two or three best articles ever written on the subject of Scientology, and it featured some women we hold in high esteem for coming forward and telling their stories of undergoing forced abortions: Laura DeCrescenzo, Claire Headley, and Sunny Pereira. In the Sea Org, recruits sign billion-year contracts and then work nearly around the clock, 365...

    Scientology and its front organizations (like Narconon and CCHR) live in a world disconnected from reality. They seem oblivious to the absurdity of things they say and positions they take. Narconon is now beginning to sound like prohibitionists, targeting county music for “romanticizing alcohol.” Unfortunately, while contemporary country music stars continue to produce great music year after year, there are increasing incidences of romanticizing alcohol in country music lyrics, romanticizing it, glamorizing it, or even construing alcohol with happy times, carefree adventures, and the ‘good life.’ Given the harm and danger that can come from consuming alcohol, fans of country...

    A few days ago Scientology put out its usual press releases about how it was at the scene of yet another disaster with its yellow-shirted “Volunteer Ministers,” this time on the island of La Palma in the Canaries where a volcano began erupting on September 19. As we’ve documented time and time again here, what’s actually going on is that Scientology dispatches its members for the primary reason of setting up PR photos like the one you see above. This time, at least, a Spanish news website, El Español, is calling out Scientology for its vulturish opportunism in a substantial...

    Russia’s Justice Ministry has blacklisted two Church of Scientology entities, banning them from operating in the country. Moscow has taken numerous measures against the group, arguing that it's a business masquerading as religion. An updated list of “undesirable” organizations was released by the country's Justice Ministry on Friday, just over a week after the Russian Prosecutor General’s office advised a ban for several Church of Scientology affiliates. Two California-based holdings, the World Institute of Scientology Enterprises International (WISE) and the Church of Spiritual Technology (CST), also known as the “L. Ron Hubbard Library,” were officially blacklisted. Both were deemed a...

    Jill Biden’s ex-husband revealed that he had an intimate relationship with the first wife of accused killer and New York real estate heir Robert Durst — just 10 days before she vanished in 1982. Bill Stevenson, who was married to the first lady from 1970 to 1975, said in an interview with News 12 Westchester that he decided to open up about the affair for the first time because of Durst’s failing health and ongoing trial. “I feel like I’m the missing link in this case,” Stevenson, a concert hall owner from Delaware, told the outlet’s Tara Rosenbloom.

    HBO’s Bill Maher went after colleges during his show “Real Times with Bill Maher,” comparing them to Scientology and calling higher education a “grift.” “But in a grift that is our higher education, when you want to move up … you need to pay for more ‘education’ before we decide you can do what you do,” Maher said in his six-minute rant. “F---, this is what Scientology does. Makes you keep taking courses to move up to the bridge of total freedom,” he added. The liberal comedian’s monologue was spurred by President Biden’s American Families Plan and the idea of...

    Tom Cruise has returned his three Golden Globes statues amid the ongoing controversy surrounding the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Cruise won the best actor honor in 1990 for Born on the Fourth of July and in 1997 for Jerry Maguire, as well as a best supporting actor award in 2000 for Magnolia. Earlier today, NBC announced that it would not be airing the 2022 iteration of the Golden Globes. Said the network in a statement: “We continue to believe that the HFPA is committed to meaningful reform. However, change of this magnitude takes time and work, and we feel strongly...
  • ‘Son of Sam’ survivor claims real shooter was Satanic cult priestess

    Carl Denaro lives with a metal plate in the back of his head, a macabre memento, police say, from “Son of Sam” serial killer David Berkowitz. Berkowitz terrified the Big Apple in 1976 and 1977 in a sadistic shooting spree that claimed six lives and critically wounded seven others. The schlubby civil servant confessed to pulling the trigger of his .44-caliber Bulldog revolver on the orders of a demonic dog. However, Denaro claims in a new book — co-authored with Brian Whitney — that his shooter was not the “Son of Sam,” but a mysterious “occult priestess” named “Big Breasted...

    I just found out that jazz pianist Chick Corea has died today from a rare form of cancer. I never knew all that much about him. I still don't. What I do recall was his album The Leprechaun from 1976. Pleasant listening. I had hoped to see him live someday. Not meant to be. I used to play that album on repeat for hours as I did my homework in College. Corea and the group Weather Report were among my favorites. Back in Columbus Ohio. I will leave it up to someone more deeply versed in jazz piano to describe...

Just so that we understand, some of the people, Mr. Hassan, you see here were once elementary school counselors. Some of these people were firemen. One of them was an Olympic swimmer. How is it that they lose control of their own sort of judgment and that a cult leader, or in this case President Trump, takes over their mindset and allows them to risk their lives for him?” HASSAN: “So, in studying all...

    Tom Cruise has shelled out “huge sums” for two high-tech robots to enforce coronavirus safety protocols on the set of “Mission: Impossible 7” – and also administer spot tests to the crew, according to a report. “Tom is so serious about making sure the shoot isn’t shut down that he’s splashed out on these robots as he can’t be everywhere to ensure people are behaving themselves,” a source on the set told The Sun. Shooting resumes this week in the UK before the production heads to Dubai, the source said. The 58-year-old megastar — who recently blew up at two...
