Hilton Welcomes Guests for Memorial

1/7/2009 2:29 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Guests at one of the top two hotels in Ocala, Florida are starting to come in, but no one you would know.

Someone from the Hilton tells us 17 rooms have been blocked off for Jett Travolta's memorial. The only people who have checked in so far are "doctor/lawyer" types. They started coming in at around midnight.

Several limo companies have been hired to take people to and from the airport. Right now five SUVs are parked in front of the hotel.

We've got one report we're trying to confirm about a celeb who may be staying at John Travolta's house. We're working on that.

Ruined lives. Lost fortunes. Federal crimes. Scientology poses as a religion but really is a ruthless global scam -- and aiming for the mainstream

Ocala is basically in the middle of nowheresville. Surprised that Travolta even has a home there...or perhaps that's what the family wanted. To be miles from anything but horse farms. Anyway, R.I.P. Jett and condolences to the family.

For god's sake this family just lost their son....Who cares who's staying at the hotel or with them...Let this family grieve! Take a step back and think about it and ask yourself if you would want blog after blog and cameras waiting to take your picture! These people are humans and are going through every parents worse nightmare!!! I just have one question, how do you all look at yourselves in the mirror????

Um Hello???    

I still don't understand how all of you can say "leave them alone" and "stop reporting", when every single one of you that has said that - are here on TMZ willingly scrolling down to find something on Jett, then clicking the link to post your "leave them alone" comments. It just makes absolutely no sense to me. If you don't want to read about it, don't look for it!

I do wonder if his brother Joey was invited or will attend the funeral. Supposedly, there was a rif between them over Jett's condition. Joey is an advocate for Autisum. Is this my business, no, but I do wonder.

The Church of Scientology is a vicious and dangerous cult that masquerades as a religion. Its purpose is to make money. It practices a variety of mind-control techniques on people lured into its midst to gain control over their money and their lives. Its aim is to take from them every penny that they have and can ever borrow and to also enslave them to further its wicked ends. Scientology is a confused concoction of crackpot, dangerously applied psychotherapy, oversimplified, idiotic and inapplicable rules and ideas and science-fiction drivel that is presented to its members (at the "advanced" levels) as profound spiritual truth. The whole machinery called the "Church of Scientology" needs to be jammed somehow so that more people do not get sucked in and the people already in it have a chance to get out. We must not forget the people already in this "church". Although they are the ones perpetrating this crime they are also the victims. They need our help as well.
And here we come to the "War on the Internet".

I actually cannot overly fault TMZ for their coverage of this terrible tragedy. TMZ, the biggest Seientology bashers in the world, actually did not jump the gun in reporting what happed to the Travolta's beloved son. I think they actually tried to be somewhat factual and not rush to judgment like some news organizations/entertainment sites did. But now to blow by blow the guest list and the coming funeral is sinking back into the pit. Bret and mytwocents worth, there will be a special place in hell for slimy idiots like you. Know it all without having a clue bile eaters are what you are. You are repulsive.

Hoping that it might just put their small town on the map, the people of ocala have built the world’s first specialist UFO landing strip at famous actor, john travolta's house. Honestly, I’m not making this up!

The tower at the center of the western roundabout will change color when the traffic intensity on the roads is low, signaling to alien craft that now is a good time to land (presumably one or two cars getting squished by a spacecraft is a worthwhile sacrifice).

There is no doubt at all that L. Ron Hubbard incorporated brainwashing techniques into Scientology to put people under his control. He even wrote a "brainwashing manual" which is still in existence today. However there was a cruel twist in his scheme. He fell victim of it himself. In creating his devoted slaves, the Sea Org, he created an audience that believed every word he said. Now L. Ron Hubbard had an over-active imagination plus delusions of grandeur. The negative feedback he would obtain by being part of normal society was replaced by the positive feedback from his devoted followers. Through this his imagination got the better of him and combined with his delusions of grandeur, his thinking became increasingly bizarre which, on acceptance, led on to more bizarre thinking and the idea that he and Scientology had the job of saving the entire universe He wanted to take over the world in order to further Scientology aims to save the universe and so branches of Scientology were set up to try to influence governments and gain positions where they could influence to world to a high degree. So what started out as a mass confidence trick backed up with brainwashing became a monstrous and insane organisation with fantastic, fanatical ideals. Because of this change, the Church of Scientology survived the death of their founder. It is like a runaway monster machine that tramples on society and peoples lives that is very difficult to stop.
