Clearwater: The first Scientology city

Scientology has published an online edition of Freedom Magazine that includes videos of plans they cancelled two years ago that show how they would have brought in area control in the Flag Land Base area.

Lots of upscale/high-end (albeit generic) businesses in the blocks around Flag Land Base properties. They would have had executive control over the area's appearance and what could happen there. No downstat activities would be allowed.

A major investigative news report about the Flag Land Base area

The Tampa Bay Times has published another important article about the emerging core area of Scientology: the greater Flag Land Base area in and around downtown Clearwater, Florida.
The article is a sequel to the "Truth Rundown" from 2009.

What's happening there could be described as a slow-motion "takeover" of Clearwater
The plan seems to be to buy businesses in Clearwater and leave them empty (some could also be turned into tax-free Scientology facilities).
This will make the area less attractive for the non-Scientology businesses nearby.
When the adjoining businesses or their owners go bankrupt, Scientology buyers can then acquire their properties for pennies on the dollar.

After a while this process will feed on itself, an accelerating chain reaction in Scientology's favor.
There's the added benefit of reducing Clearwater's tax base, weakening the local politicians.
But what do they need all these vacant properties for? Clearly, Scientology has big plans for the Flag Land Base area

Flag Land Base funding source

A news article out today reports that in 2016, the Trish Joy Foundation made two donations to the Flag Service Organization (FSO). The FSO runs the Flag Land Base in Clearwater.
According to the data on page 21 of the 22-page tax filing linked below, the donations were for the dissemination and delivery of religious services. They were in the total amount of $2.65 million.
The larger of the two donations was in the form of AbbVie Stock. This is a pharmaceutical company that makes the cancer drug Ibrutinib (Imbruvica, Ibrutix).
In 2016, this drug cost about $150,000 a year per patient. AbbVie estimates global sales of the drug will be $5 billion in 2020.

Could OT 8 be done in the Flag Building in Clearwater?

There is at least one whole secret floor in the Flag Building.
If something happened to make the Freewinds cruise ship unavailable, Scientology boss David Miscavige could well declare that the top-secret OT 8 service (a.k.a OT VIII or OT8 or Operating Thetan 8) could be done in one of the secret areas. They might have to refurbish them and make them suitably "upstat".

Looking for any information about the Cause Resurgence Rundown

Actually, we would settle just for photos of the Rundown. As you may know, the only image is a rendering of the main room that was submitted with the "Superpower Building" planning application.
So this building has been open for six years now, but somehow not a single photo has leaked out. No doubt all cameras are confiscated at the entrance, but a security guard may have taken some snaps of the circular running track, or someone of the (in house) cleaning staff. Getting these images will be our new mission.
