    Okay, this is some serious tabloid stuff.

    Suddenly, I want to watch the Neurotology video again.

    The source (cough) of the article, is here:

    Clearly a hoax. Big Beings don't need space ships to travel the universe.

    I'm really beginning to warm to this 'National Enquirer' newspaper/magazine whatever the fuck it is.

    Stuff like:

    As though you can be simply 'promoted' to OTIX (although if you're TC maybe you can, in practice it makes very little difference).


    I'm not sure what is more bonkers, the CofS or the NE.

    National Enquirer specializes in gossip and far out stories. They HAVE, though, put out some solid news that other papers didn't want to touch, like the Bill Clinton affair with Monica Lewinsky, and the John Edwards affair which sank his presidential ambitions.

    The NE puts out some far-out stuff for the amusement value, but they are pretty careful to make sure they have solid data before printing anything that may trigger a libel suit. Since this would not be libel material, I would put it in the "possibly true gossip, but don't trust it" category.

    I think there is some truth to it. After all TC is moving to Florida. He could move anywhere. He chose Florida.

    They once asked me for a dirt story, and offered a whopping $300 for my story, paid in advance. They didn't mention any fact checking. Just my story. And they requested that it be about drugs and sex relating to the person of interest.

    That's why they call it a tabloid, or info-tainment. But as mentioned already, they often get the true story before any others want to touch it.

    Me neither. I can just see the conversation they had.....picture this....

    "Tom, I can't do this anymore, the suppression is weakening me! You're the only one that can carry the torch! The SPs are getting stronger, nuclear war is about to break out, you're the only one that has a chance to pull it off and SAVE THE PLANET!!!!! Do it for LRH!

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it....."

    Possibly they figured that if it was expressly labeled as YOUR story, that YOU would be on the hook for any libel lawsuit if there was anything there that could be shown to be false and libelous.

    He's just moving there because he's sick of people who are "fake" lol. Like you know all the people who watched "Going Clear" and read Leah Remini's book
    are so, um, "fake".

    Nice, now they can trade off standing on each others shoulders whilst wearing a trench coat and pretend to be a normal size person.

    Well, not to nitpick, but that Lewinsky story broke in the Drudge Report on 1/17/98.

    The Edwards scandal broke in the New York Post on 8/27/07.

    But who cares? Tommy is OT IX!!!!
