    Doesn't she read the Tampa Bay Times? Hasn't she seen the articles that expose the cult as a criminal organization?

    I hope her rivals are paying attention. I hear negative ads can be quite effective.

  6. Bondi is aware Scientologists are staging the event, said campaign spokeswoman Christina Johnson. She said Bondi first connected with Scientologists in 2010 when she and other elected officials toured some of the church's Clearwater facilities. Bondi spoke then to a group of Scientologists about human trafficking and the evils of pill mills, a topic that resonated because Scientologists sponsor what they tout as the largest antidrug program in the world.
    At Tuesday's fundraiser, she will return to those themes, Johnson said. "It's like-minded folks sharing the same goals: Protecting children against drug overdoses and human trafficking,'' Johnson said.
    One of those topics rings with irony. From 2009 to 2011, the FBI investigated church work sites, primarily in California, focusing on physical and mental restrictions and probing whether they constituted human trafficking. The investigation ended with no charges filed.

    someone wrote this about Michael Baybak in 2012:

    CharleneHux Jan 4, 2012

    "Interesting to see that the top donors to Scientology have nearly all been involved in scams themselves - Bryan Zwan, infamous for his Digital Lightwave scam is still going strong with donations of $10 mil plus to the Cult of Scientology from his newest company, Forge ABS. Do his investors know where the money really goes? Then there's that slime, Michael Baybak, who has a PR firm that apparently has no ethical qualms over a hostile takeover of a company he was hired to promote - he donates millions to the Scientology scam. And the list goes on....It is a scamming cult that teaches others to effectively scam the innocent to raise more funds to scam more people. Its so hypocritical, that it has anti-psychiatry, anti-drug groups in its name while its biggest contributor, Bob Duggan, owns and runs a pharmaceutical company! Investors beware - Bob donates 10s of millions of dollars of your money to Scientology rather than research."

    "Mining Money in Vancouver"
    by Richard Behar 2001
    "Two Scientologists who operate there are Kenneth Gerbino and Michael Baybak, 20-year church veterans from Beverly Hills who are major donors to the cult. Gerbino, 45, is a money manager, marketmaker and publisher of a national financial newsletter. He has boasted in Scientology journals that he owes all his stock-picking success to L. Ron Hubbard. That's not saying much: Gerbino's newsletter picks since 1985 have cumulatively returned 24%, while the Dow Jones industrial average has more than doubled. Nevertheless Gerbino's short- term gains can be stupendous. A survey last October found Gerbino to be the only manager who made money in the third quarter of 1990, thanks to gold and other resource stocks. For the first quarter of 1991, Gerbino was dead last. Baybak, 49, who runs a public relations company staffed with Scientologists, apparently has no ethics problem with engineering a hostile takeover of a firm he is hired to promote."

    Baybak's firm represented Western Resource Technologies, a Houston oil-and- gas company, but got the boot in October. Laughs Steven McGuire, president / of Western Resource: "His is a p.r. firm in need of a p.r. firm." But McGuire cannot laugh too freely. Baybak and other Scientologists, including the estate of L. Ron Hubbard, still control huge blocks of his company's stock.,9171,156965,00.html#ixzz2GEBPJvUI

    Gerbino, and the Baybaks and Nancy Cartwright all gave to Stone's campaign.

    Rathbun: ‘Scientology never endorsed anyone where there wasn’t a clear self-interest’

    On Sunday, we broke the news that Scientologists were holding a campaign fundraiser for Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, who is running for re-election this year.

    One of our tipsters had forwarded to us a mailer that was not meant to be spread outside the church, showing that several high-level Scientologists were organizing the event at the luxury Clearwater condominium of wealthy church members Michael and Liz Baybak. The fundraiser is scheduled for tonight, and attendees are asked to donate at least $1,000 each to Bondi’s campaign.

    Bondi is a Republican and former prosecutor who was endorsed by Sarah Palin when she first ran for election and won in 2010. Most recently, she’s been in the news for announcing that she would be vigorously defending Florida’s ban on gay marriage in the state and federal courts.

    Yesterday, Joe Childs of the Tampa Bay Times published a detailed story after talking with Bondi’s campaign, who confirmed that she’s attending and that she’s well aware the event is being organized by Scientologists.

  12. The Clearwater city officials paid $125,000 to be advised that they must buddy up with the scilons. Now it comes up that they're friends with the Florida State Attorney General and the US Representative for their area. That doesn't just happen - this is something they've been working on for awhile. It makes you wonder who else they are friends with.

    Yeah, the Clearwater anons with their glorious reports of - ahem - cult shrinkage, how everyone in CW hats them (obviously, NOT) and that Fail Down event sure have been super effective in blowing the culties out of town, huh? Hey, how about we hold even more awesome "thousand-cuts" protests and 20 people conferences in CW while they fucking negotiate to buy up Clearwater Beach too. :mad:

    Bondi talked with Scientology about human trafficking and "pill mills"?
    BWA HA HA!!! Classic!
    Guess she didn't hear all about the human trafficking that goes on within the COS.
    You know, passport confiscation, visas that run out, name changing, family disconnection, child and adult slavery or about Narconon the niacin "pill mill"
    I can't stand this fucking cult

  19. She obviously doesn't care about forced abortion either when it's scientology doing it. But Hobby Lobby employees want to NOT get preggers and she supports the 'lifers'. I hope she knows what Jesus said about hypocrites.

    Sarah Palin endorsed this idiot, no doubt to further the aims of her own cult and we do know those cults like to stick together for the religious freedom to separate people from their money and lab0r. I'm worried this is a larger legal strategy to keep investigation of the cult stonewalled. It was on Bondi's watch after all that the HS investigation into human trafficking occured and mysteriously died.

    Pam Bondi comes across as just gullible enough and just corrupt enough to be a complicit tool of scientology. Florida voters should remove her next election.

    The 8 1/2"x11" invitation sure resembles the Flag Service Org event invitations we received back in the day. Same format and fonts. Only thing missing is the copyright notice at the bottom. How many WOGs received invitations? Would Flag design these invitations? Would Flag print these invitations? Would Flag cater Bondi's fundraiser? Relevant questions deserve factual answers.

    Cooper to Biondi the flip flopper:
    "But you were arguing (in court) that gay marriage -- if there was gay marriage, if there was same-sex marriage -- that would do harm to the people of Florida, to Florida society," he said. "Are you saying you do not believe it would do harm to Florida?"

    Trump paid IRS penalty for Bondi contribution
    September, 1, 2016

    WASHINGTON -- Donald Trump paid the IRS a $2,500 penalty this year, an official at Trump's company said, after it was revealed that Trump's charitable foundation had violated tax laws by giving a political contribution to a campaign group connected to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi.

    The improper donation, a $25,000 gift from the Donald J. Trump Foundation, was made in 2013. At the time, Bondi was considering whether to investigate fraud allegations against Trump University.

    She decided not to pursue the case.

    Earlier this year, a liberal watchdog group raised new questions about the three-year-old gift. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, filed a complaint with the IRS — noting that, as a registered nonprofit, the Trump Foundation was not allowed to make political donations.

    Florida AG Pam Bondi hosting human rights event at human rights abuser Scientology’s HQ

    By Rod Keller, September 4, 2016


    Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi is scheduled to speak at the Fort Harrison Hotel on October 1, to address Scientologists on her efforts curb illegal drug use and human trafficking. Scientologist Steve Sigal announced the event on social media, and said it would be “very theta,” which is a Scientology phrase for having positive life energy. Sigal is a founder of the Clearwater-based marketing company SJS Associates, and was involved in a controversial campaign fundraiser for Bondi at the Fort Harrison in July, 2014.

    The October 1 event is being sponsored by Florida Citizens for Social Reform, an IRS-registered non-profit, non-tax exempt social welfare organization co-founded by Steve Sigal’s wife Joanie. Past events by FCSR have promoted the Scientology front groups Foundation for a Drug-Free World and a Narconon-like program to help Gulf War veterans detoxify their bodies.

    Bondi made headlines in June when it was revealed that in 2013 she solicited a $25,000 campaign donation from the Donald J. Trump Foundation and then decided not to bring fraud charges against Trump University in her state. Trump subsequently paid a $2,500 penalty to the IRS and admitted that the donation to Bondi’s campaign from a charitable foundation was improper.

    But beyond Bondi’s own indelicacies, it’s interesting that she’s going to give her talk on human trafficking at the “spiritual headquarters” of an organization that signs up children as young as six years old to billion-year contracts to work for its “Sea Org” at pennies an hour.

    "What is sad to see are Scientologists who refuse to look at the obvious evidence of Scientology's blatant abuse of human rights and the proof of the COS abusing it's "parishioners" by forcing disconnection, enforcing slave labor and coerced abortions for their Sear Org members and fair gaming ANYONE who speaks out against them.
    To stand behind this criminal organization with its many front groups IN ANY WAY (being a member or not) with all the information that is out in the open now, makes all involved complicit in the COS's abuses.
    quoted myself from another thread.
  35. xander meehan Member

    Thanks for posting this. As a vet it is crucial that everyone actually sees that this is how Vets are taken advantage of. Bondi is heavily involved with FoxNews, and as such this is a demonstration of how the Scieno are taking advantage of the situation. Most Scieno controlled politicians come out of Hollywierdoville and are of the Demoncrat variety. Then on the other side of the same coin, with people like Goober Van Suckerhead at Fox, playing at her dis-information game (ie being a football fan, prancing around touting conservative views, defending Roger Ailes,) etc etc etc you can clearly see how both sides are being played. The worst part is Veterans being caught in the middle, this totally sucks.

    I am going to post an article, and I hope you find it insightful. I am sure everyone will know someone that fits the description, regardless of whatever political side you identify with. That's the saddest part of the commentary.

    The Scienos will always play both sides. Recently Meghead Cooter Coochie over at Fox messed up live on air, when she stated and I quote, "My Dianetics...."..... blah blah blah, regarding how it helped her achieve things in life. Also she recently signed with the Huvano Scieno Hooligans that have always been Scieno, and actually were behind the targeting of Leah Remini... The article below.

    Are Our Leaders Psychopaths?

    This article analyzes the pervasive mental illnesses that seem to accompany many CEO’s of major corporations as well as those who seek and obtain elected office. The results are staggering and should send a huge message to the average American.
    The Whole Country Is Going Crazy

    The United States of America is presently undergoing a mental health crisis. An estimated 26.2% of Americans ages 18 and older suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year. This figure translates to almost 60 million people who have a diagnosable mental illness. Even though mental disorders are widespread within the population, the main burden of illness is concentrated in a much smaller proportion, which is confined to about 6% of the population, or about 1 in 17 who suffer from a serious mental illness. In nearly half (45%) of those with any mental disorder, they meet criteria for two or more disorders. In the U.S., mental disorders are diagnosed based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V).
    Most (over 65%) of the diagnosed mental health disorders are reactive in nature to a faulty environment and are common to a population being placed under dire stress. As would be expected, anxiety disorders lead the way and can manifest themselves in Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (common to veterans in combat), various social phobias, eating disorders (at record levels) and depression (rising at an alarming rate).
    Genetic factors are thought to generally play a role in mental illness in about 30-50% of all mental illnesses. However, the bulk of symptoms are maladaptive responses to a negative environment. In other words, the sheep may not be outwardly rebelling, but their unconscious minds are stating that the New World Order is not fit to live in.
    Psychopath or Sociopath?

    The terms psychopath and sociopath were in vogue 30 years ago in the mental health field. We still see the use of these terms to describe morally deprived people who commit heinous acts of some sort against other human beings. However, on an official level, the terms have been rolled up into one clinical term, Anti Social Personal Disorder (ASPD)..
    I contend that most of the mental illnesses that we are seeing in today’s America are reactive to the depraved nature of those that seek power over others. It is becoming quite clear that when we closely examine the mental health of many in power, they exhibit the hallmark traits of people with diagnosable ASPD.

    Antisocial personality disorder is characterized by an individual’s disregard for social rules and cultural norms, impulsive behavior, and indifference to the rights and feelings of others. Mental health researchers estimate that approximately 3% of males and 1% of females, aged 18 or over, have ASPD (Lenzenweger, M.F., Lane, M.C., Loranger, A.W., Kessler, R.C., 2007). DSM-IV personality disorders in the National Comorbidity Survey Replication. Biological Psychiatry, 62(6), 553-564).
    here-i-come-america.jpg The National Institute of Mental Health diagnoses Anti-Social Personality Disorder by having four of the following seven characteristics:
    • Failure to conform to social norms with respect to lawful behaviors as indicated by repeatedly performing acts that are grounds for arrest.
    • Deceitfulness, as indicated by repeated lying, use of aliases, or conning others for personal profit or pleasure.
    • Impulsivity or failure to plan ahead.
    • Irritability and aggressiveness, as indicated by repeated physical fights or assaults.
    • Reckless disregard for safety of self or others.
    • Consistent irresponsibility, as indicated by repeated failure to sustain consistent work behavior or honor financial obligations.
    • Lack of remorse, as indicated by being indifferent to or rationalizing having hurt, mistreated, or stolen from another.
    It takes confirmation of 3 of the above to qualify one for a positive diagnosis for ASPD. How many of these do you see for Hillary Clinton? I count five symptoms. Therefore, when people used the outdated terms psychopath and sociopath to describe Clinton’s behaviors, they are correct.
    Individuals with ASPD Constitute Fertile Recruiting Ground for Today’s Leaders

    If I were a power broker in the emerging New World Order and I needed politicians to carry out my agenda of controlling every person and every resource on the planet, I would seek individuals who have previously earned their stripes as being both mentally ill and highly ambitious individuals who will move to get ahead at all costs. I would seek out people who have the traits of an ASPD individual because I could count on them to pursue power at all costs in the pursuit of the NWO agenda. And when they are caught violating the public’s trust, I would just replace them with another person who exhibits the same exact ASPD traits. And it is ideal if these “public servants” already have a litany of behaviors emanating from their ASPD symptoms that I could use to blackmail them when the need arises. In a nutshell, I have just described the American political scene.
    Whereas, 75% of Americans are emotionally stable and 25% are not, I think these are the exact inverse numbers of what we see in Congress and other key elected positions such as the governors of states. I believe that if we did a mental status exam on George Bush I, George Bush II, Bill Clinton and President Obama, we would see all four individuals with completely diagnosable ASPD. Millions have died, who did not have to under these criminally insane leaders. We have lived through three completely avoidable wars in which several million have perished as we whip a little democracy on these countries as we misappropriate these victimized country’s resources.
    ASPD in Corporate Circles and Local Politics

    When institutions engage in illegal business practices designed to deprive people of their homes, the leaders and their minions of these organizations are exhibiting ASPD.
    Richard Eskow, senior fellow for Campaign for America’s Future, relates how former employees of Bank of America submitted sworn affidavits to a civil lawsuit claiming that “the financial institution purposely stalled, delayed or denied home loan modifications.” They also claimed that the bank enforced foreclosure quotas and gave bonuses to those with the highest foreclosure rate. So will Bank of America pay for these alleged practices? No, because Federal judges are appointed by the criminally orientated mentally ill as well, or they would not be selected.
    This parallels what the Federal Reserve is doing. Since September of 2012, the Fed were previously purchasing $40 billion dollars worth of mortgage backed securities each month. This is nothing but a modern day version of feudalism in which the Lords are buying up all the land so they can exploit even more serfs who pay tribute to live on the land that has been stolen from them.
    A 2010 study that examined a sample of 203 individuals from different companies’ management development programs revealed something interesting. It was found that about 3% of business managers scored in the psychopath range while the incidence of psychopathy in the general population is approximately 1%. So why are there so many psychopaths in senior management positions?
    More Disturbing Evidence

    A more recent study, published in 2014 in the Journal of Forensic Psychiatry and Psychology, provides more insight on the behavior of people with ASPD.
    In the study, an experiment was conducted in which a group of people were given a standard test of ASPD (psychopathy). In the same experiment, subjects were shown a series of pictures designed to determine their levels of empathy.
    The research study concluded that ASPD’s, with high IQ’s were able to control their emotions as they became more manipulative. For anyone who has watched the Netflix original series, House of Cards, the main character, Frank Underwood, is the poster child for these psychopathic tendencies as are Bill and Hillary Clinton.
    Carolyn Bate, the first author of the study, stated the following:
    “The ones who are at the top of businesses are often charming and intelligent, but with emotional deficits, as opposed to psychopaths who are quite erratic and tend to commit gruesome crimes and are often caught and imprisoned.”
    Bate also believes that psychopaths in positions of power could be far more than the reported 3%,because if people are aware they are psychopathic they can also lie – they are quite manipulative and lack empathy.”
    Further, Dr. Paul Babiak acknowledges in his book Snakes in Suits: When Psychopaths Go to Work the following observation:
    They are masters of impression management; their insight into the psyche of others combined with a superficial – but convincing – verbal fluency allows them to change their situation skillfully as it suits the situation and their game plan.”
    This is the MO of most politicians. From the Hillary to Obama, this is their defining personality characteristic.

    What does all of this mean? It means that the American people need to wake up to the fact that character matters. It is also speaks to the need for term limits for all elected officials. The less time one spends in office, the less chance they have to victimize the public.

    Trump and Bondi- At first Trump denies he spoke to her and now his people are "walking back" on that lie.
    "Trump denied Monday speaking to Bondi.

    “I never spoke to her, first of all. She’s a fine person, beyond reproach. I never even spoke to her about it at all. She’s a fine person. Never spoken to her about it, never,” Trump said, according to the Washington Post. “Many of the attorney generals turned that case down because I’ll win that case in court. Many turned that down. I never spoke to her.”

    Scrutiny of the contribution was renewed last week by a Washington Post report that Trump paid a $2,500 fine to the IRS for making the donation through his charity, rather than from his own pocket. The Trump campaign blamed the move on a clerical error."
