What the public say about the 4th Maiden Voyage event

Post by 'Alert' » Fri Jul 04, 2008 7:36 am

Wait til y'all get a gander at this promo clip.

All the cults snoop-links are removed (they have identifiers in the referral URL's), and the video is up on Google, so no proxies needed.


In the midst of our biggest and most sweeping expansion, we're now celebrating the Freewinds' 20th Anniversary with a very special round of events. OT's from around the world have attended the OT Summit 2008 aboard our OT Ship, and now those events are coming to your Church of Scientology!

To make sure you and all your friends don't miss these powerful and unique events, I'm sending you this rundown on the events so you can plan your calendar for the summer. The first of these events is right upon you!


I'm also sending you a first-ever teaser video on this year's MV events — so you can see what you've got in store, and also pass the word on to your friends!

Here's a briefing on what's in store for you:

Opening Night: Setting the Course to a Whole New Universe. On Opening Night, there will be a "State of Scientology" briefing by Chairman of the Board RTC for all Scientologists. We're celebrating one year since the release of The Basics, and we're celebrating two decades of unprecedented OT accomplishments. Now, through combining OT power from every corner of Earth — with even more new Ideal Orgs rising across the globe — this is the night we take stock of massive, new potentials and reorient to a whole new universe. Click here for local times & locations >>

Night II: FREEWINDS — Your OT Base — Setting Passage to Eternity Itself. This night is dedicated to the NEW Freewinds, as we commemorate her 20 years of service in the name of OT and show the grand view of her history over two decades with a never-before-heard LRH briefing on the Sea Organization. Click here for local times & locations >>

Night III: A Source Briefing. Here the LRH Biographer presents a totally unique, never-before-heard briefing on L. Ron Hubbard that you won't want to miss. This event is for everybody—experienced Scientologists and newcomers alike. No one should miss the incredible adventures you will hear of at this event. Click here for local times & locations >>

Night IV: Fourth-Dynamic Global Salvage. This night you will receive our "mid-year report" on the impact all members of the International Association of Scientologists are making across the planet with our broad 4th-Dynamic IAS-Sponsored campaigns, bringing real solutions to leaders and populations world-over. You will also see a special presentation of our latest strategic steps in those campaigns. All are key to achieving the Aims of Scientology and all of it is new, urgent and vital to everyone who cares about the future and planetary clearing. Click here for local times & locations >>

Every event contains vital data you need to know as a Scientologist. And every Scientologist across six continents of Earth is being contacted to attend all of these events.

To confirm your attendance, or to invite your friends, click here — and we will see you there!

Thanks, Alert. It took me a while to figure out where the link was to the video:

In the Scientology world, there is apparently no such thing as over-the-top.

Refitting the Freewinds is like putting leather upholstery in a Trabant.
You can't polish a turd.

And so here were are on 4 July 58. And why he have this fellow, ahh, goes by the name of Sponge, and ahh, Sponge has originated that that one cannot polish a turd.

Did you hear that?

I said that this fellow Sponge claims that one cannot polish a turd.

Well, uhh, I guess Sponge has never heard of a little thing that we call Scientology.

(Peals of wild laughter and a broad grin from Ron)

I am rather bemused by the naivety of wogs. They are insensate. Insensate is a fifty-cent word that means having no senses. You see, an OT, why, ahh, a nine foot tall OT like that prince of a chap John Carmichael, why he can smell, ahh, not to be indelicate...

(Wild anticipatory laughter and snickering. Left front boom camera does a wide pan of the audience, zooms in on front row. Tom Cruise slaps his knee in hilarity on cue from the floor director. Cut back to LRH on camera one.)

... not to be indelicate, but, ahh, Johnny Carmichael can smell pussy and homos from miles away!

(The entire house bursts into hysterical laughter and applause exceeding anything ever seen at a Rodney Dangerfield comedy performance. Note: Issue "Ron the Comic Genius" magazine.)

...and pussy and homos are called Anonymous!

(Second wave of gut-bursting hilarity ensues. MAA's must finally restore order using rubber truncheons and cattle prods after one half hour of excessive OT line charging)

Ahh, it seems that, ahh, well, that we have had some large amount of small injuries from comedy. And so, uhh, and so that is why laughter is not a good thing in Scientology. People are always getting injured in the humor band because, factually, thetan humor is too funny across the duh-namics you see. Humor, ahh, is best done on heavy gravity planets where the meat bodies can handle true comedy. By actual research, humor only works when one does as he will. Doing as one wills to do is, ahh, great fun actually. One can only be as funny as he can be cruel. That is why Scientology can be said to be so funny when one is in complete control of Scientology. There is only one hat that actually matters in Scientology you see. And so, ahh, why if you are not wearing that hat in Scientology then, ahh, why to use a phrase, you ain't worth shit in Scientology.

Which rather nicely brings us back to this turd-polishing business.

Ahh, David Miscavige has, ahh, has rather magnificently polished my, ahh, my rather large turds to a lustrous gold sheen many a time. The Basics, oho! Haa, ahh, haa, ho! Now there is, haa, a gleaming set of steaming, polished turds for only $5,000. Honest to Pete! If David was not such ah, uhh, such a complete scoundrel, a real chip off the old theta block, I would've, ahh, factually had him keelhauled decades ago when he was, ahh, a rude young ruffian. First time I saw him, ahh, 1974, something like that, he weighed all of seventy pounds dripping wet. Ahh, why he was standing in my shower dripping wet is quite, ahh, oh, quite another story.

Well, you Americans, ahh, you have a nice holiday. Libs are granted today to all in honor of the rather notorious R6 implant that was the motivator for the American constitution that rather handily protects Scientology. When I was, uhh, factually, writing the Declaration of Independence with George Washington, Jimmy Madison, ahh, the Federalists, and so on, why we, ahh, we all knew then that...ahh... we knew. Ahh... it is the darnedest thing, but we knew even then that Scientology would be needed in 1950 A.D. as we count wog years that are dated by the, ahh, the err, the birthday of the fellow on the cross. Oh yes, it's quite true. The first time I arrived at the exact moment of the implant to "create America" was dated at 43,891,832,611,177 years, 344 days, 10 hours, 20 minutes and 40 seconds from 10:02=BD PM Daylight Greenwich Time May 9, 1663. The second series was dated to the moment of the implant "to get Scientology tax exemption in America" I got as 42,681,459,477,315 years, 132 days, 18 hours, 20 minutes and 15 seconds from 11:02=BD PM Daylight Greenwich Time May 9, 1663.

So yes, ahh, I did create America all by myself. That is a fact and you can write it down in great big letters in your book. That I, ahh, gave the credit to the boys who wanted to, ahh, rather selfishly go down in history as "Founding Fathers" well, ahh, there happened to be a rather convenient sugar plum for me in making the trade you see. Ahh, I wrote the Declartion of Independence in exchange for tax exemption. That deal was all worked out, ahh, worked out by me centuries in advance when I was William Few of Georgia.

I did it for the few you see.

So today, to honor the Declaration, ahh the Declaration of Independence, I would, ahh, factually I am requiring, ahh, ordering, that all assembled herein join the Sea Org. I need to crew The Freewinds and Gold. I need to offload all of those old pigs at Gold.

MAA's, pass out the billion year contracts and the fountain pens!

(Terrified silence. Some people begin running for the doors only to be met by the rubber truncheons and cattle prods by the MAA's)

MAA's bring order! Lock all of the doors!

Ahh, this is going to be a very long Independence Day!

Make money. Make more money. Make people produce so as to make more money.

It's actually kind of a cool video. The music and the graphic effects are really...well...now that I think about it, they seem kinda familiar...


Where have I seen that set up before...

Oh yeah, I remember!

Right here: http://www.imdb.com/video/screenplay/vi2692743449/ (after the commercial)

Sorry, CoS, but "The most OT ship on Earth" (this is an actual image from the video)...


...is nothing compared to the Black Pearl!

Sorry, BF, but the pirates of the Black Pearl are a bunch of pikers compared to Co$, which has stolen more money from people on the high seas than Captain Jack Sparrow could even dream about.

Hell, the Freewinds doesn't even need to attack other ships. The regs just take the people aboard -- who have already shelled out big bucks just to be on the ship and listen to some Hubspew -- turn them upside down, and shake them until all of their money falls out!

The wind may be free, but the air is deadly. It is a ship of death.
A Ghost Ship indeed, manned by asbestos breathing zombies.
Come aboard and be brushed by the wing of the angel of death.

Deathwinds, they'll take you on a cruise to die for (or from)!

That's not original music.

It's from some Hollyweird submarine movie like "The Hunt for Red October" or "Crimson Tide."

All of this expensive video work is just what Sponge says...turd polishing and pig lipsticking.
John Carmichael: Are you a homo? Have you come out of the closet?
ANONYMOUS: You're wearing tweed in the summer and you're asking ME if I'm a faggot? Xenu please ...
John Carmichael: What?

Those two movies came to mind also when I heard that music.

The music is from the score of the 1995 movie, Crimson Tide, starring Denzel Washington and Gene Hackman. The composer is Hans Zimmer. Considering that CoS is using his music to sell a product, I believe he should be getting paid for this use. I wonder if he is.

Zimmer's film scores include The Da Vinci Code, Pirates of the Caribbean, Gladiator, The Thin Red line, As Good as it Gets, The Lion King and ... interestingly ... Rain Man and The Last Samurai.

Possibly he is friendly with TC after having worked on those two TC movies. Maybe CoS has gotten permission to use his music on a promo video. Or maybe not. In any case, his agent, the Gorfaine/Schwartz Agency in LA, has been sent a copy of this CoS video.

I wonder if the CoS can be reported for copyright infringement?

The music in that clip was lifted from the trailer for the movie "The Rock" starring Sean Connery and Nicholas Cage.

You can listen to The Rock opening theme here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Z176N5lh7w

The music was written by Hans Zimmer, who did the whole score for the movie (I loved that music!)

'The Rock' Soundtrack is published by Hollywood Records, who are part of Disney.

Disney are extremely litigious.


The musical scores of Hanz Zimmer are very, very distinctive. So much so that I know it's his music even before I've seen the opening credits.

This also seems to say that CoS can no longer afford to have their own people to work on original musical scores. It's these little factoids that add together to me to show how fast and how far the cult is falling.
