    I often tell myself that I can’t decide what entertainment (movies, music, etc.) I like on the basis of what I find out about the professionals producing it.

    I don’t believe myself when I tell myself that, but I do tell myself that.

    “Yeah, I’m a Scientologist. My father has been a Scientologist for about 35 years, so I grew up in and around it.” When questioned by the interviewer about Scientology’s core beliefs, he replied:

    What it actually is is just sort of, uh, you know, I think it’s about philosophy and sort of, uh, all these kinds of, you know, ideals

    WTF! Amazing how she sits there and rattles off almost every conspiracy theory in a concise package. It’s beyond thinking, it is delusional. I am stunned that our way of life can enable a person this deluded to otherwise function normally.

    I’m disappointed at the number of musicians on the list although I’m not surprised. It’s obvious that being talented in one aspect does not protect you from irrationality.

    Another reason to not be surprised is that Scientology goes out of its way to court celebrities and even artists who might one day become celebrities. They have the funds and the facilities to do it right, too.

    Colleen Thomas is a Scientologist? I thought she was just mentally ill. I’m impressed at her ability to cite so many conspiracy theories in such a short amount of time, though.

    This Coleen Thomas woman has been cropping up on my google-reader about three times a day for the last week for some reason and I had never encountered her before. I have known of the link between UFOlogy and Neo-Nazi Conspiratoria at least since the Oklahoma City bombing but I always suspected that “reptilians” and “draconians” were just code words for Jews and blacks or something … Now I’m not so sure …

    I have to wonder if she is saying physics when she means she has studied physic’s. The latter seems a better match for the content of her comments.

  15. #15 Greg Laden
    November 11, 2010

    Yeah, I was thinking that too. And when she says “The Pleideans have a superior technology” she meant to say “I ate the whole bottle of pills this morning and now I feel great!”

    Did I hear that right in the intro: she is a “physicist” and specializes in the “science” of creation? Throw that station in the dump right there, don’t even listen to any of the crap that follows.

    What utter idiocies comes out of that woman’s mouth, a mash of all the conspiracy theories into one steaming heap of bullshit.

    What kind of brain can produce that amount of illusions? Religious believers and that woman are on the same level – believing made up stories as representative of reality.

    I actually see very little difference between the stories of various competing religions and the load of nonsense that woman spouts – she is just more comprehensive in her delusions.

    Another commenter to just say – Oh noes! Beck?! WTF!? Everybody else on that list I could care less about (but I’m scared of how long it is).

    I’m still listening to his stuff though.

    Sonny Bono – singer (“Sonny and Cher”), U.S. Representative

    Mary Bono – widow of Sonny Bono; U.S. Representative

    Umm… Does this mean the corpse of Sonny still attends the clearing sessions? (Or whatever it is those crazy Scientologists do to rid themselves of thetans.)

    She appears to believe what she asserts, as many humans do when asserting their ‘reality-model’. I offer this hypothesis: She may be a Useful Idiot — an individual surreptitiously employed or directed by an external intelligence group (IE Nation-State based, corporate-based) for the purposes of misinformation or distraction.
    If I were an operative, using this woman would pay in full! As an operative, I wouldn’t have to train or tell her anything. Just turn her in the direction I want her to go, give her easier access to media, slip her ‘declassified’ (IE B.S.) intelligence information, and watch her GO. Funny!

    are there any full videos of the rocket/plane?

    seems to me if someone videod it for 30 minutes, it would be clear if it were a missle, cuz it would go back down, or a plane, cuz it would keep on going and going and going.

    it was probably jupiter. :)

    Man this is fucked up. I can’t believe that these assholes are selling our dead bodies on their meat market. Sick sons-of-bitches! It is good to know that the Pleiadians are working on our recession—I guess how and what they are doing is top secret.

    Question, in the second video she says, “Late next spring everybody that gets to live on this planet get 5.3 million dollars.” Is that 5.3 million each or shared?

    That list is ancient. Sonny Bono has been DEAD for years, and his widow left the cult years ago. Isaac Hayes is also dead. Paul Haggis famously left the cult last year. Jason Beghe is now an active critic of Scientology. Some of those people took only a class or two, but never got involved beyond that.

    I appreciate the need to keep people informed and aware, but please do your homework. I doubt very much that people like Jason Beghe want to see their name on that list.

    Holy cow! that’s practically a parody of itself.

    OK folks, so here’s the real conspiracy.

    RT is Russia Today:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RT_(TV_network)

    They’re pouring kook-stuff into the airwaves in order to turn our brains into mush, and then take over the country. You’ll know this is true if they appoint Ariana Huffington to run their “health” program.

    And the real “secret war” behind the scenes, is between the Russians and the megachurches, to see who can recruit or produce the largest number of lobotomized zombies for their zombie army.

    If you want to avoid being detected as someone who still has an intact brain, learn to have that “vacant stare” as if you’re watching a big screen that’s about eight feet away, and let your mouth hang open just a little more than normal. Looking too alert definitely scares them.

    As for all the Scientologists in the entertainment industry: amusingly creepy but hardly as scary as all the Dominionists in politics. Film stars who believe their heads are infested with Thetans, are no threat to your civil liberties. Elected officials who believe in a demon-haunted world and the necessity for the righteous to rule with an iron fist in order to cleanse the Earth for the Second Coming …yeah those are a threat. Serious as a heart attack.

    Come on. The missile wasn’t a missile – it was a TARDIS making a quick escape back to the early 1900s to thwart an assassination plot against Charlie Chaplin.*

    Just whom do you believe the woman using the cellular phone was actually talking to? Yup. Three minutes later a Police Box mysteriously vanished from the studio’s properties department.

    * Who was actually going to be employed in a later episode plot to fake Hitler speeches and make the Führer look like a bigger nut than he already did.

    Andrew Loog Oldham has taken Scientology courses and in his autobiography “Stoned” (1999) credits Scientology with helping him to sustain sobriety after many years of drug and alcohol abuse. However, he was never audited nor was he allowed to move up the Bridge because he was considered damaged goods due to his prolonged drug habit. In the years since, he has drifted away from his friends in Scientology and now has nothing to do with the organization. I was his editor on the book and we are in close contact so that is my authority for stating he is NOT a Scientologist.
