How come, if you have to be so open, Scientology Management's activities are such an area of Withholds?
On The Bridge?
.......Others haven’t been so lucky. One of the Ship Engineers was severely disaffected with Captain Love Boat after several run-ins with him. He became increasingly enturbulated and was not sleeping. He was put under 24 hour watch with full time guards and video cameras in his room. He was not handled with standard tech and ended up committing suicide by hanging himself in the shower with a sheet. The entire incident was covered up so as not to create a “flap.” False information was given to the authorities.Carol Miles, the Public Officer and public face of the Freewinds has disappeared. I guess, like Heber, nobody dares ask where she is. In fact, she was being “handled” under the brilliant guidance of CO CMO Ship (Sue Price) with her special style of “executive C/Sing”. Carol’s “handlings” didn’t go well. She made threats and became a security risk. And what happens to inmates on the prison ship when they are too hot to handle? They get shipped off to the prison colony – the RPF in CLO ANZO, in Sydney.Quite a number of “problem” staff have been routed to the ANZO RPF. It is thought to be so remote that anyone sent there has effectively been “disappeared”. Like the 3 Gold staff who were banished to the ANZO RPF after they pissed off Dear Leader. Those 3 (Karl Whitcher, Kip Engen and Nicolai Ciferrelli) were assigned to do the RPF twice through. They have been there since 2004. One of them completed the first time through last year – imagine 6 years of sec checking, FPRD and TRD and now having to do it all over again!So, this is where Carol Miles is. She joined other “security risks” banished to the prison colony – including the former IG MAA Chris Guider who had fallen from grace when he refused to comply with an order from Miscavige to hit a Gold staff member with his swagger stick and the ex-RTC Rep FSO who knew all about Miscavige’s involvement in the McPherson matter
..we have this hilarious pile of fluff that was dug up and posted to YouTube this weekend. Make sure you watch it quick, before David Miscavige's minions have it yanked down.
Speaking of diminutive Dave, he can be seen right at the front of this "We are the World"-type singalong that was put together in 1990...all around him are some famous names from Scientology's past and present:
At the 2:40 mark, you'll see everyone together warbling their guts out. Our tipster provided the following playbook:
Blonde with brown top and black jacket is Shelley Miscavige -- who is now missing.
To his right -- Mark Ingber -- Former Commanding Officer of CMO = Commodore Messengers Org, reported to be in the Hole. To Ingber's right and behind him, Mike Rinder Former Commanding Officer of OSA, currently blown and speaking out against the cult.
Front and Center -- David Miscavige [the little dude] wearing weird Hermes/goatse shirt. To DM's right and behind him -- Heber Jentzsch, Former President of the C of S, now reportedly in the The Hole.
To DM's right -- Greg Wilhere -- Inspector General, reportedly still working for DM. To Greg Wilhere's right-- Marty Rathbun, Former Inspector General for Ethics RTC, now out and speaking out against the cult as well as running the "Independent" Scientologists. To Marty's right -- Guillaume Lesevre Executive Director Int. reportedly in the The Hole.
I remember that it was done for one of the events and I think it was IAS anniversary event that was going to be in October. It may have been for an earlier event. It was done to show all the "Wins" and "successes for the year and the song was sung by a Scientologist singer named David Pomeranz. Charles Lake is the Gymnast and had just been on the Olympic team that summer that is why I think it was for the IAS event in October. I remember that the idea was to have all of International Management sing the chorus ala We are the World and DM thought the Scientology public would get a big kick out of it. All of the RTC Inspector Generals were in the front with DM and his wife Shelly and the Executive Director International Guillaume Leserve was there too. Then behind was the rest of RTC and the Watchdog Committee. I recognize many faces in the crowd. We recorded it in the Music Studio at the Gold Base and we are all looking at Peter Schless who is conducting the singing. Schless was a Gold Musician and his prior claim to fame was co writing the Jefferey Osbourne hit song "On the Wings of Love" from the 1980s. Me personally, I had just been put back working for David Miscavige again after a stint of manual labor for disagreeing with my wife being sent to the RPF. I however shortly after this video blew the base for good after 2 attempts. Almost 21 years ago.
Blow - To blow means "to leave without permission" or "to leave before something is completed". One can "blow staff", "blow course", "blow session", or "blow the org". It is a very, very serious offence in Scientology to blow. People who leave without permission in this way are usually declared.
If there’s one thing religion reporters, cult experts and former cult victims know about Scientology is that this cult is better at producing utter nonsense than any other so-called ‘New Religious Movement’ out there.
Unable to get much, if any, serious coverage in legitimate media outlets, Scientologists produce a constant barrage of ‘press releases’ praising the Church of Scientology for its marketing efforts — which more often than not are thinly disguised as ‘humanitarian campaigns,’ ‘disaster relief,’ ‘anti-drugs education,’ and what not.
Meanwhile the ‘Church’ tries hard to convince its members that it is doing exceedingly well, and that they are part of something truly special.
Hence the organization lies to its own members much the same way it lies to the public at large (e.g. by claiming that it is the ‘fastest growing religion of the 20th century’).
The result is spooky to say the least — a fact adequately demonstrated by Tom Cruise in his infamous Scientology video.
Recently another video — apparently meant for internal consumption only — became public. It’s a Scientology sing-along:
What makes this video, produced in 1990, noteworthy is what happened to many of the Scientologists ‘standing tall.’
Apparently many of the famous Scientologists in the video are no longer ‘standing tall’ for the cult.
