Many of you are familiar with John P. Capitalist and his brilliant comments at Tony Ortega’s Underground Bunker - http://tonyortega.org/. I am a BIG fan and am very excited about his new blog. He started this project early November.

The Scientology Daily Digest - http://www.johnpcapitalist.com/ -  is a daily compilation of Scientology general news media coverage, his analysis of Tony Ortega’s daily stories, a compilation of  links to selected comments at the Underground Bunker, a synopsis of Mike Rinder’s blog, and list of current and relevant threads at the discussion forums; ESMB, WWP, OCMB, and Reaching For The Tipping Point.

Here is a selection of excerpts of how John P. describes his blog…

I started this blog to try complement the existing sites that each do a great job at what they’re good at, by trying to do something that they aren’t really set up to do.

Quote
I have spent a significant chunk of my free time over the last two years researching Scientology and writing of my conclusions in various forms including anti-cult activist sites like WhyWeProtest and Ex-Scientologist Message Board.  By far, the bulk of my writing about Scientology, however, has been in comments on the site of Tony Ortega…

Quote
But Tony’s success has caused some problems: with ten times as many comments, it is increasingly hard to separate the wheat from the chaff. Back-and-forth dialog enables people to understand and respect each other, including those who have never met. But those “light and fluffy” comments also make it hard for many readers to keep up with the comments…

Quote
It’s clear to me that I can leverage my career experience to build a site to deliver something that’s missing in any of the current popular anti-Scientology sites. Given my experience in analyzing companies, corporate strategy and economic data in my day job at a hedge fund that I refer to as “Global Capitalism HQ,” I want to bring the analytical skills and judgment I use in picking stocks to the process of thinking about what is going on today in Scientology and where it might lead in the future.

Quote
This is my site, and at least for the short term future, I’ll be writing most of the content. But I can’t do it all alone, even if I wanted to.  I want to build a community of like minded anti-Scientology activists from across the spectrum who want to do their own research and digging to help increase the effectiveness of anti-cult activities.  The cult is increasingly vulnerable, and well-aimed action can help blunt the damage it does in the world more rapidly than at any time in the past.  If you like writing (and reading) insightful analysis or digging up obscure source documents and connecting the dots to help expose and oppose Scientology, I want this to be an important destination for you.


This blog is worth checking out - http://www.johnpcapitalist.com/

(I have volunteered my help and have been sending him links to relevant threads of the discussion forums.)

Thanks for bringing the links over to RFTTP, aegerprimo. I've been meaning to get over to JPC's blog and do some reading. His comments add a lot at The Underground Bunker.

I’m back.  This post gives the story of what happened, what I have in the pipeline, and invites you to contribute to the return of my blog.

The Back Story

It’s time to restart this blog after about three months on an unplanned hiatus. I got hit by several factors in late December that basically conspired to take me offline.  No, I wasn’t stalked by OSA or anything like that. Here’s what happened:

This is valuable info from the point of view that only John P's experience and expertise in Global Capitalism HQ, can bring to to explain the wacky world of the Co$.
