Scientologists trying to ‘take over the government’ by cozying up to Trump: Leah Remini

Published

on

The Church of Scientology has been cultivating ties to the Trump administration, according to actress and former Scientologist Leah Remini.

Some prominent Scientologists have been cozying up to President Donald Trump and some of his top officials, including Vice President Mike Pence, Remini told The Daily Beast.

“There’s a policy in Scientology dealing with the public image,” Remini said, “and it’s to infiltrate real churches, control governments, control government agencies. This is all part of the policy of Scientology, which is to infiltrate, to take over.”

Lobbyist Greg Mitchell, who has worked for the church, has met with Pence, and Scientology donors Jim Bridgeforth and Tom Cummins recently met with the president, who has also tweeted about singer and Scientologist Joy Villa.

“They have no idea what they’re dealing with,” Remini said, “and I’m disappointed that they’re not seeing through Joy Villa’s bullsh*t. I mean, you only need to look at her social media to see whose [political] side she was on before, she wears that Trump dress, and then she gets her failing career going. This is all part of the game of Scientology. Scientology hopes to take over our government.”

Trump has also sat down for an interview with former Fox News host Greta Van Susteren, a high-ranking Scientologist who has also interviewed other members of the administration.

“She’s a big-time donor to Scientology and she’s OT VIII,” Remini said. “That’s the top of the Scientology bridge!”

Remini’s Emmy-winning A&E series, “Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath,” will air its final episode Monday night.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Thursday lashed out at Gen. James Mattis, President Donald Trump's former Defense secretary.

Writing an op-ed in The Atlantic on Wednesday, the Mattis highlighted the president's tendency toward fascism and authoritarianism. It prompted Graham to tell the general he doesn't know what he's talking about.

"To General Mattis, I think you're missing something here, my friend. You're missing the fact that the liberal media has taken every event in the last three-and-a-half years and laid it at the president's feet," Graham said on Fox News, according to Axios.

Sean Monterrosa, 22, was kneeling when a Vallejo police officer shot and killed him. The shooting happened while police were trying to stop looters from invading a local Walmart.

"This individual appeared to be running toward the black sedan, but suddenly stopped, taking a kneeling position, and placing his hands above his waist, revealing what appeared to be the butt of a handgun," Vallejo Police Chief Shawny Williams said.

But Monterrosa was carrying a hammer, not a gun.

Published

on

Former House Republican Congressional Committee Investigative Counsel Sophia Nelson this week published a scathing column about her former party in which she encouraged Americans to simply give up hope that it will ever properly serve as a check on President Donald Trump.

In her latest Daily Beast column, Nelson called the GOP "hopeless" and declared that "the party of Lincoln is dead, dead, dead" after so many of its members stayed silent in the wake of Trump's widely panned photo-op stunt at St. John's Church in Washington D.C.
