Aaron Smith-Levin: Life in the Scientology Matrix. Why Clears Are in Danger & Other Inside Secrets
58:51

This podcast is about the often arbitrary ways in which the Church of Scientology works in real life as opposed to its PR. For example, after spending $50,000, or more, to reach the State of Clear, the new Clear is given a secret letter from L. Ron Hubbard telling them that they are in danger and get onto the OT levels as fast as possible or else! But how can this be if a Clear no longer has his or her Reactive Mind? A Clear is supposed to be at "Cause Over Life" and able to handle anything. However, they are told they in some kind of danger and won't discover why until they do OT III Jeffrey Augustine asks Aaron why it can take up to 20 years to move from Clear to OT in Scientology. This is a great question. Aaron explains why this happens to former Sea Org members who are treated like pariahs and lepers. Aaron discusses how David Miscavige used the Golden Age of Tech I and II in an ideological manner to purge older Scientologists who were loyal to Hubbard and not Miscavige. Aaron also offers fascinating insights into young 2nd generation Scientologists who attested that they were past life clears as early as 12 years of age. Aaron's insights into this and the consequences it caused inside of Scientology are extremely fascinating.

Ron and Mary Sue's children had plenty of money due to their father's wealth. Indeed, L. Ron Hubbard left very little to his children by Mary Sue. Guy reveals the exact amount.

Scientology Meddles in Shastina Sandman's Congressional Primary Run
01:04:36

Shastina Sandman is running in the GOP primary to nominate the Republican candidate for Congress in the 48th District of California. As part of her platform, Shastina opposes the widespread psychiatric drugging of children. Upon learning of her position on psychiatric medications, Scientology sent in an operative from its notorious front group Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR). The CCHR agent met Shastina at a political meeting and gave her a CCHR package of materials.

The agent never told CCHR was a part of the Church of Scientology. Rather, the CCHR agent played upon Shastina's opposition to drugging children and got her to support CCHR on her podcast. In the podcast, Shastina and Jeffrey also discuss Scientologist Joy Villa and her foray into politics. Of note is Joy Villa's insistence that she is a Christian and a Scientologist when, in fact, Scientology does not allow its members to engage in other practices and considers all other religions to be implants.

The Wasel-Augustine Scientology Refund-Repayment Fraud Survey
23:06

On this podcast Dr. Jeff Wasel and Jeffrey Augustine discuss the Scientology Refund-Repayment Fraud Survey. To view and/or complete the survey please go here: Wasel-Augustine Scientology Refund-Repayment Fraud Survey

The Wasel-Augustine Scientology Refunds-Repayment Survey represents the first ever formal attempt to quantify a specific institutional behavior of Scientology. In this instance, the legitimacy of Scientology’s claims of having a transparent refund/repayments policy, as well as the human cost of Scientology’s problematic financial behavior in this regard.

The survey will extrapolate data from a variety of key indicators, such as the amount a member has/had on account, their time in Scientology, their level of success in attempting to obtain a refund or repayment from Scientology, as well as if they experienced undue levels of aggressive “regging”. It also asks if they were coerced into exceeding their credit limit or pressured into opening new accounts to fund Scientology services, and lastly, the extent of any negative lifestyle outcomes that may have arisen from their financial relationship with Scientology.

Ron Hubbard who at T-Bone steak on his private ship while children starved, had no medical or dental care, and wore rags.

A Medical Doctor signs off that the person can do the Purif, but then, Sea Org members or staff supervise it. .Purification Rundown requires a person to be in a dry sauna five hours per day. A person must also take increasingly high daily doses of niacin until they reach a 5,000mg maximum. 
I have heard from some credible sources that there is an insistence on continuing the Purif at 5000 Niacin for some time before a person can attest they are done. This is a Miscavige Order. Often OT VIIIs who have done all the levels are re-cyled to re-do their Purifs.

Surviving Scientology Episode 18 with Mike Rinder
34:49

Mike Rinder discusses the Scientology PR flack Sylvia Stanard's recent speech about Scientology at the Chataqua religious conclave. Stanard lied about Xenu, Disconnection, and other matters of substance. Stanard was evasive and refused to honestly answer questions. Mike Rinder makes the point that no Church of Scientology spokesperson can tell the truth -- and Rinder knows as he was the International Spokesman for the Church of Scientology for over twenty years.

Mike Rinder makes the point that all the Church of Scientology can do is to evade, duck, and deflect the hard questions and does so by focusing on its real estate portfolio as proof of its expansion. "If Scientology were really that bad would we be purchasing and opening all of these new Ideal Orgs?"
