Miscavige: Selling Soft-core Porn

allegedly sold to Scientologists to
cover his bad investments with
Hubbard's money. See below...
I spent 25 years on staff, including a span of approximately 20 years in Scientology's secret headquarters in Gilman Hot Springs. I left after David Miscavige physically assaulted and violently battered a series of individuals in my presence including Mark Yager, Guillaume Leserve and Mike Rinder (three of the highest ranking Scientologists). I also saw Miscavige attack Ray Mithoff years earlier. I was not only in the same room, in one case I was standing right next to the victim when Miscavige went off. I had endured incredible suppression in the hopes it might get better, but when Miscavige sweetened the deal by meting out potential concussions, I finally said enough.
Many of us stayed on for years hoping it would get better under the delusion that “it couldn’t get worse.” We were wrong. Scientology management has been decimated. It literally doesn’t exist. It went from some 1,400 staff in 1988, down to about 300 people today -- and true enough, all those with any kind of spine or spark of independence are gone. And now Miscavige is hard at work destroying lower organizations such as the FSO in Clearwater and local orgs with his “heavy ethics” which are really a cover so he can walk in and demolish the lives of staff.
And where are those staff now? All over the world, uniformly doing well, but having to rebuild their lives from scratch. Those of us who routed out standardly from Int Management were given $500 and a declare order which which to start over. Many of us have spent our whole adult lives in the Church. Which means when you leave, you also leave behind any family and every friend you know. Those of us who started with the Church at an early age, had no college degree. So just imagine starting over in your 40s or 50s, with $500, no friends, no place to live, no car, no credit, nothing. It keeps one busy for a few years.
But besides the challenge of starting over, those of us now on the outside all share something else, an abiding hatred for this wrecking ball named David Miscavige. And one by one, we are starting to do something about it by speaking out.
For example, through his destructive policies Miscavige forced hundreds of female Sea Org members at International Management to get abortions when they got pregnant. When people started to blow the whistle on that, he came up with the solution: he ordered that husbands and wives at International Management get divorced.
Miscavige has a specific tactic that he has used for years to mow down anyone in his way. When someone is doing well, he at first rewards them and holds them up as an example. Then a few weeks later he loudly accuses them of “out-ethics” (Scientology-speak for unethical behavior). That of course is a generality, but this one-two knockout punch weakens his target greatly, because whoever he condemns is then pounced on by a legion of dupes, boot-lickers and sycophants who either A) hope to get in good with Miscavige or B) hope to buy off a similar fate by being on Miscavige’s side of the law. Since Miscavige’s allegations are always generalities, they are difficult if not impossible to disprove. Any flaw or minor failure can be re-spun as “out-ethics.”
Miscavige is a master spin doctor. With threats and inhuman treatment, such as intense sleep deprivation, the threat of banishment (and thus divorce and disconnection from friends and family) and psychiatric warfare he beats people senseless until they are willing to make up facts and statistics for his videos and speeches. If you’ve ever been to a Scientology event, you know what I mean. If you add up all the people “reached” by a handful of IAS Medal Winners it is more than all the people who exist.
Someone goes to visit their sister in another country, and that gets turned into someone set out to “rescue a nation” devastated by a natural disaster. Video crews literally hire “rent-a-crowds,” get a few people holding Dianetics books, and that is turned into an incredible saga of epic proportions. In some cases, the people with the smiling faces on video have never even heard of Scientology. Stories are invented. Motives are invented. Production graphs are invented.
Here’s the truth about Scientology’s “international events”:
LRH held one international event in Anaheim in 1976. Stats crashed. After that, he put out an issue in the Sea Org that there were to be NO MORE INTERNATIONAL EVENTS. He forbade them! Why? Because they suppress org stats and expansion since everyone in Div 6 is thrown off post to prepare for the event.
So after LRH died what did Miscavige do? He launched an unending stream of events that take not only everyone in Div 6 off post, but all of International Management off post. Scientology became a hype machine, racing from even to event, instead of a salvage operation. The mission of orgs became “to prepare for the next event.” The business of management became, “to write the next round of speeches and videos.” And if you think top “management” has done anything else for years, you are uninformed. They’re just glorified speech writers and performers -- and bad ones at that since they all are forced to write in Miscavige’s own trademark (and horribly cheesy) “brag and boast” style. Miscavige personally micro-manages, rewrites, re-edits and approves every single speech and video.
Every international event that has ever been held in Scientology violates explicit LRH orders. Miscavige’s international events are the propaganda machine that he uses to generate the large donations that go into his personal pocket.
International Management Gone
All the leaders of the Church of Scientology are officially declared (suppressives) and have been for years. Like Mark Yager. And Ray Mithoff. And dozens more. Guillaume Leserve (Executive Director International, Janet Light (President of the IAS), top staff from OSA -- they’re all in the “SP Hall” -- two office trailers which once housed CMO Int. (“SP” means suppressive person or “anti-social”).
Even the term “International Management” is an oxymoron (“international mob” is more truthful since they have lacked any org board for years. There is no WDC, no Exec Strata, no CMO Int, and not even any RTC anymore. It’s all been dismantled by David Miscavige). There is only “COB’s Office.” Even Miscavige’s own wife, Shelley, a person whom he wiped his feet on constantly is, last I heard, “under watch” in New Mexico -- at the secret Archives location -- the Church of Spiritual Technology.
When you send a report to Tech Reports Off RTC, there is no one there to read it.
To put this in perspective, here is a man who has a small army of selfless volunteers with no ulterior motives or hidden agendas, who have dedicated their entire lives to forwarding this movement, who are willing to work day and night without rest and Miscavige can’t get along with them? Even with all the tools of Scientology at his disposal and the power to command anything he wants?
Blackmail of Government Officials
Of course there’s much more. Did you know how Miscavige got IRS Commissioner Fred Goldberg to grant tax exempt status to the Church of Scientology? In about 1993, Miscavige personally told myself and several others in a meeting that he confronted the IRS Commissioner, Fred Goldberg, in the hallway outside Fred's IRS office and threatened to expose him. Miscavige said his people in OSA (Office of Special Affairs) had hired private investigators to trail and video Fred and they had caught him in some unethical activity. Miscavige said that he told Fred if he didn’t cooperate, he’d immediately expose him in full-page ads in USA Today. That is what Miscavige said. Is it true? I don't know, I wasn't there. But I do know that Miscavige bragged about it.
Selling Soft-Core Porn
Miscavige has been making a great deal of money from parishioner donations for years. That is why his “best friend” is Tom Cruise. By subsidizing Scientology with donations, wealthy Scientologists are unintentionally and unknowingly bank rolling Miscavige himself and thereby contributing to the destruction of thousands of lives of honest Sea Org staff members.
Since the 1980s, Miscavige’s income has been well over $100,000 a year. While the rest of us in the Sea Org made somewhere in the neighborhood of 35 cents a hour. A friend of mine who used to work in RTC told me that when she started, she received a Christmas bonus of $9,000. She felt guilty about it since regular Sea Org members only make $2,300 a year if they are lucky. When she tried to return it, she was told it had to be that big or else Miscavige’s bonus would look "out of proportion to the IRS." She was told, if you don't want to do it for yourself, do it for Miscavige.
But Miscavige doesn’t just get paid in cash. He receives tremendous volumes of camera equipment, motorcycles, cars and buildings for his personal use. He himself built a gigantic building “for RTC” costing millions that today stands empty in Gilman Hot Springs.
Financial crimes are old hand to Miscavige. In the early 1980s when L. Ron Hubbard was still alive, Miscavige secretly took over all management of LRH assets and promptly lost $30,000,000 in the oil industry. Such blunders are a Miscavige hallmark and so was his criminal "solution." Miscavige’s fix was to invent a series of “collectible prints” -- paintings by Frank Frazetta, etc., of semi-nude women with huge breasts -- and he ordered the staff of Author Services Inc. (ASI) to start selling these to Scientologists, which they did. In other words, Miscavige tricked Scientologists across the world and literally made them pay for his criminal folly. Even in the early 1980s, Scientologists were paying as much as a million dollars a week for "collectible" prints with no real value. Hubbard never knew anything about it.
Isn’t it kind of odd when the de-facto leader of a church starts peddling soft-core porn in lieu of Church services? This is the same guy who in the 1990s had thousands of Scientologists investigated to see if they were masturbating. Huh? Well, pardon me, but someone is rather twisted.
The Valuable Final Product (VFP) of Scientology churches is supposed to be "totally freed beings." Instead, Miscavige is hawking prints of semi-nude women for thousands of dollars a piece, raking in millions every month, year after year?
The Extortion of Parishioners
Is this the leader of a church? Or is this a lunatic on a warpath? The fact is, David Miscavige has done more to destroy Scientology than all past enemies combined.
When LRH was around, the Church sold services to generate money. Now it simply demands donations from Scientologists. In other words, there’s no exchange any more. It’s just outright extortion. Parishioners who don't cooperate are turned over to Ethics where they are forced to make financial donations or else.
David Miscavige is the Tony Montana of Scientology. Power drunk, paranoid and consumed by greed, this high-school drop out has spent most of his career snorting up not only huge piles of parishioner money but the very lives of those dedicated to helping mankind. From the start his only real skill was intimidation. He developed it to a high art, as did others of his kind: Al Capone for example.
