    CONFIDENTIAL BRIEFING: Scientology, Nation Of Islam and Mayor of Los Angeles.

    This breaking story just in from Mike Rinder.

    Scientology and NOI — The Latest


    * * * * * BEGIN QUOTATION * * * * *

    The latest scientology/Nation of Islam collaboration front group activity.

    This “United in Peace Day” is being promoted in scientology circles as the “first public recognition of TWTH’s role in producing LA’s historic drop in crime” (what do they put in the water in scientology buildings?)

    And here is the “Confidential” briefing about this event (I wonder why this is confidential?)

    This is Mayor Eric Garcetti's way of showing support to the African-American community in Los Angeles. The event includes alot of the churches serving the African-American community. It's also supported by the NOI which gets a huge boost from Scientology Inc.

    Nancy Cartwright attended & spoke at the 2012, 2013 & 2014 Peace Rides.

    I can completely understand Mayor Eric Garcetti showing support for the event given its avowed purpose of remedying gang violence, and support by churches in the African-American community and the NOI.

    What he may want to consider is whether he wants to provide:

    That word is not in the Hubbard dictionary so to check it, they would have to look on the internet - a high crime. Getting a name wrong is only embarrassing and insulting. These are things the Scientologist is trained to cope with. Looking on the internet, not so much.

    I'm curious if Lee Baca will be in attendance for this event. :unsure:

    Surely he still cares about the community even though he's no longer Police Chief. :yes:

    Here's a snip from the Underground Bunker covering his attendance at one of these events from back in 2012:


    Given the amazing drop in crime caused by TWTH with the gang activity I'm wondering why TWTH wasn't quite as effective within the LAPD itself? Surely Mr. Baca would have realized that the culture within the LA County jail was violating multiple precepts of TWTH, wouldn't he? :whistling:

    That won't matter to Eric Garcetti who used to be the longtime city councilman that represented the Hollywood area (where most of the Scientology properties lie) and was involved in alot of issues trying to find a balance between his constituents who are Scilons & pro-Scilons & those that aren't. I had many conversations with his chief of staff Mitch Farrell (who is now a city councilman) about the games that Scientology played to shut down protests at it's events.

    The cult was not happy with Garcetti when he stepped in & ordered the LAPD to stand down on some of their tactics established to appease the cult.. as a result, the cult had to put up curtains on the street to block protesters on the sidewalks from seeing in (which was a major fail on their part).

    I'm sure Garcetti will approach the event to show support for the African-American community & will be very wise not to say or do anything that could be construed as an endorsement of Scientology Inc. That doesn't mean the cult won't distort the facts to do this, however.

    My advertising and marketing background got the better of me this morning, in large part because it seemed unlikely that the claims of “biggest”, “most-listened-to” (and others), were true.

    As a precursor: the link to the website from Mike’s blog didn’t work for me, so I wound up Googling “United for Peace”. I found a site that was active a year ago, connected with an entity named “UpFest”. That link is In the “About” section, there’s information on the history of the Peace Rides, as well as mention of the Nation of islam and The Way to Happiness.

    ON “Gang Capital”:

    From a look at today’s LAPD website:
    No mention of Peace Rides.

    Excerpt: The lie I heard was by 790 KABC host Kevin James that Los Angeles is the “gang capital of the world” which is completely untrue. There are so many countries that are plagued with more violent gang activity throughout the world such as Jamaica, South Africa, El Salvador, and Brazil to name a few. Of course he cites absolutely no person or offers no statistics on that claim, but many of his listeners most likely believe this false statement. Although I have used the phrase, “gang capital of the country,” I say this with 100% certainty that Los Angeles is not the “gang capital of the world” and anyone who says so is either ignorant or spewing propaganda.

    ON Los Angeles being the third largest economic metropolis:

    Los Angeles isn’t on list of top 10 cities with global economic power. The third in that category is London.

    ON “United in Peace” as of July, 2013 (from the “UpFest” link)

    This is an excerpt from the “About” section, as of July 2013. Note mention of the Nation of Islam, there were over 80 biking and car clubs at the time, the agenda is parallel to that of the upcoming October 2014 event, there’s mention of TWTH (as well as other materials), and the promoters are social media and two radio stations (KJLH and Power 106).

    “United in Peace was started and is lead by Minister Tony Muhammad of the Nation of Islam with the support of Power 106 DJ, Big Boy and Rev. Alfreddie Johnson of the True Faith Christian church. It now counts amongst its multi-racial participants over 80 biking and car clubs, most of the gang intervention groups in the city including Ceasefire, as well as a wide variety of other community leaders, groups and congregations.

    The festival’s concert will be hosted by Big Boy and features a line-up of hip-hop and R&B acts from Kam (of Da Lench Mob) to Overdoz and Medusa with Grammy-award winning jazz legend, Stanley Clarke closing the event. Between performances, United in Peace will honor “Peace Makers” in the city, remember the victims of gun violence and present the United in Peace program including the materials the Peace Rides has been distributing throughout Los Angeles over the last 10 months – a pledge for greater personal and societal responsibility from the Million Man March and the non-religious, common-sense guide to better living, The Way to Happiness. The festival will include activities for children such as bouncy-houses and face-painting. In the weeks leading up to the event, United in Peace has been promoting the event with handouts, over social media and on the airwaves of KJLH and Power 106. The invitation for the free event and concert has been extended to anyone and everyone in the community who wishes to participate in a family-friendly event to help promote and foster greater unity and peace in Los Angeles and surrounding cities.”

    ON Power 106 – 105.9 FM
    The call letters for 105.9 are KPWR (

    Per the Neilsen ratings (, KPWR is third on the list; KJLH — also mentioned on the United in Peace 2013 website) is way down the list.

    Personally, I think it more likely that the gangs finally sorted out stable turf boundaries. A large percentage of the killings had come from inter-gang rivalry.

    Maybe we should send a letter with 100 signatures demanding to know the evidence base for his claim that The Way to Happiness was responsible for a reduction in crime. And if we don't get a sensible answer, write to the newspapers about it.

    Nothing that Scientology claims as being true should ever be taken at face value.

    Consider the miraculous results claimed for the WTH campaign in Venezuela, then take a look at Venezuela today.

    Or the "astonishing" drop in crime in Los Angeles, spearheaded by Scientology and the Jew-hating Nation of Islam...

    Facts are, indeed, stubborn things.
