Scientology head’s father was spied on, police report says – LA Times

In Scientology on April 9, 2015 at 11:54 pm

Scientology Crime Boss David Miscavige Paid Thugs to Stalk His Own Father for 18 Months.

miscavige_int_event_2013-08-27_1807

For 18 months private detectives tracked every move made by the father of David Miscavige, leader of the Church of Scientology, as they eavesdropped, spied on his emails and planted a GPS unit on his car, according to police records.

The church paid the two detectives $10,000 a week through an intermediary, the records indicate, all because Miscavige feared that his father would divulge too much about the organization’s activities.

The episode, detailed in documents obtained by the Los Angeles Times, is the latest in a decades-long series of allegations that the church has intimidated, harassed or abused current and former members, at times going to great lengths to dissuade them from discussing their experiences or knowledge of the secretive religion.

The End Of The Road For David Miscavige by Mike Rinder

In Scientology on April 9, 2015 at 11:48 pm

david_miscavige_la_times
 

This proves everything that has been said about how Miscavige and Co. “respond to critics” are lies. No private investigators. No spying. No intimidation tactics. No smears.

These are not “claims from bitter disgruntled apostates” who “have an axe to grind” or are “making money.” These are COURT documents from police interviewing the PI’s they caught spying on Ron Miscavige Snr while carrying silenced rifles, handguns and thousands of rounds of ammunition.

And even in the face of this Miscavige STILL lies and has his attorney mouthpieces claim he has no involvement.

Is Scientology Afraid of HBO Going Clear?

In Mind Control, Scientology on January 27, 2015 at 7:37 pm

GoingClearPoster

 

Scientology Inc. is in nuclear panic mode over this HBO documentary by Alex Gibney that premiered Sunday at the Sundance Film Festival and will be shown on HBO March 16.

Their reaction has been to run full page ads in the New York Times, Los Angeles Times and USA Today.

 

 

I’ve addressed the New York Times ad already in this video

 

 

but I want to quickly comment on this USA Today ad that ran five days ago right now.

First: 24 Million?

If this was true, don’t you think the mainstream media would have noticed and reported on it?

Here’s Page One results of a Google search for “Scientology Volunteer Minister disaster relief”

 

scientology volunteer minister disaster relief - Google Search 2015-01-25 14-46-45

 

They’re all links to Scientology owned websites!

In our world of 24 hour cable news channels, none of them bothered to report on Scientology’s “Largest independent relief force on Earth”?

Does that make any sense to you?

Second:

200,000 Scientology Volunteer Ministers?

There aren’t 200,000 Scientologists in the world.  There aren’t even 100,000 Scientologists on the entire planet!  I’ve reported on the actual number of Scientologists before in this video report:

 

And finally:

The American Red Cross is probably the largest relief force on Earth.  Take a look at their Twitter page – 1.9 million followers.  The Official Scientology Volunteer Minister Twitter page has 2,000 followers.

 

American Red Cross (@RedCross) - Twitter 2015-01-25 15-00-50

Volunteer Ministers (@ScientologyVM) - Twitter 2015-01-25 15-02-21

 

There is also a tremendous disparity in the number of likes on their Official Facebook pages too.

Don’t believe ANYTHING you hear or read from a Scientologist, or Scientology Inc.

Do you own investigation.

Texas Judge Orders Deposition of Scientology Supreme Leader David Miscavige

In Activism, Scientology on February 11, 2014 at 6:52 am

This is my recap of the two hearings on the motion to depose Scientology Supreme Leader, Captain David Miscavige.

Texas Judge Orders Deposition of Scientology Supreme Leader David Miscavige from Mike Bennitt on Vimeo.

And here is my full-length video from the hearning:



A late addition to Captain Miscavige’s defense team is former Texas Supreme Court Chief Justice Wallace Jefferson. So far, he has appeared in court with the defense team twice. You can see him here:

Tony Ortega reported that,

A conspicuous addition to Scientology’s legal team was the arrival of Wallace Jefferson, who only recently stepped down from his position as the chief justice of the Texas Supreme Court. At the last two court hearings, Wallace has been taking notes as his brother, Lamont, has represented Miscavige and argued for hours on Wednesday in a vain effort to convince Judge Waldrip that Miscavige shouldn’t be deposed.

Jeffrey thinks Wallace Jefferson was brought in to prepare appeals, and he expects that Scientology’s team will soon be going to a state appeals court or the state supreme court asking for permission to file for a writ of mandamus.

“They don’t have a right to a mandamus. They have to apply to the Texas court of appeals or supreme court for the right to file it,” he explained to us. “Mandamus is supposed to be extraordinary.” He says he expects the Scientology team to put together a voluminous petition filled with references to religious rights to convince an appellate court that Judge Waldrip abused his discretion by calling for Miscavige to testify.

Eagle Eye View of Scientology Superpower Building

Scientology Superpower Grand Opening Aerial View 17 November 2013

Scientology Superpower Grand Opening Aerial View 17 November 2013

Last Sunday afternoon Mike Rinder and I decided to watch Scientology Supreme Leader for life David Miscavige preside over the ribbon cutting of his 20 year project from overhead in a helicopter.

Scientology claims 10 million members.

They claim over 4 million new people a year.

Sea Organization propaganda claims this is the biggest event in the eternity of the universe.

Knowing that Sea Organization members are pathological liars, and in particular have lied about the number of Scientologists for decades, we decided to document how many people actually show up.

Have a look for yourself. There are several watchers analyzing these photos to determine the number of attendees in the photos, but you can also have a look at my photo set for yourself and decide.

How many people does it look like in the photos to you?

*****

I produce my videos at my own expense as a public service.


My reasons for doing this are:


1. To expose the modern day slavery, mind control, and other abuses of the Sea Organization and their Supreme Leader for life David Miscavige.


2. Expose Scientology for the fraud that it is.

What Is Wrong With Scientology Book Review

In Activism, Scientology on August 22, 2013 at 9:55 pm

View original version here http://vimeo.com/72929182

What Is Wrong With Scientology address questions that I’ve asked for 15+ years and could not get a straight answer to from anyone inside the corporation. The book reconciles contradictions I’d observed and consequently suspended reason in order live with, resulting in heartache and loss for me personally and thought control and slavery for loved ones that I have introduced to the Philosophy and who remain prisoners behind the Iron Curtain of Mind Control that is Scientology Inc. to this day.

I appreciate the many quotes from non-Hubbard books. Earlier this year I read Lifton’s book Thought Reform and the Psychology of Totalism: A Study of “brainwashing” in China and I downloaded A Brief History of Everything and just started chapter 1 of Man’s Search for Meaning.

I survived Scientology Inc. This book will be a part of others doing the same.

I am not a Scientologist. I’ve graduated and moved on.

But if you are a Scientologist you’ve read the books, you’ve heard the lectures, and you can look around you and see that things aren’t adding up.

I understand. I’ve been there.

Read this book. Take the data, evaluate it for yourself, and see if any of it is true or not.

I’m not demanding your agreement.

However, if you’re not allowed to look at the data and inspect it for yourself and find out if it’s true – well isn’t that, in and of itself, a problem? Isn’t that someone thwarting your self-determinism? Isn’t that other-determinism?

So I’m simply asking you to look at the data for youself and come to your own conclusions.

Scientology: Disconnection, Fair Game and Espionage

In Mind Control, No Time For Slaves, Religion, Politics and War, Scientology, Uncategorized on August 18, 2013 at 2:48 am

Scientology: Disconnection, Fair Game and Espionage from Mike Bennitt on Vimeo.

Today Marty Rathbun published one of his finest posts to date titled Scientology and Psychiatry.

This post is basically a Knowledge Report about how some individuals who have attained Scientology’s highest levels of spiritual enlightenment teamed up to tear apart Lori Hodgson’s family and then assist Sea Organization recruiters in luring her underage son and daughter into Sea Organization slavery, by coercing these minors into signing contracts pledging their next billion years to servitude in the cult.

This tragedy is not an isolated incident.

I’m not going to give away everything in Marty’s post, you should read it for yourself. But when the dust settles, it’s not going to be the evil psychiatrists who destroy Scientology – it’s Hubbard’s own Policies of Disconnection and Fair Game, and his creation, the Sea Organization, that will destroy Scientology.

Because this IS Standard Operating Procedure for Scientology Inc.

They want all of your money.

They want your children.

They want anyone they can put to work or use in other ways.

And they will stop at nothing to get them.

Moreover, the Sea Organization is nothing more than a Human Trafficking and extortion operation that needs to be put down permanently.

And yes, I have my own experiences with this brutal practice, as do so many others.

*****

Here is Lori’s story:

UPDATE: Scientology Sea Organization Begging For More of My Money

In Michael Bennitt, Scientology on August 16, 2013 at 5:18 pm

Scientology Sea Organization Begging For More of My Money from Mike Bennitt on Vimeo.

Mystery solved!

This morning Mike Rinder posted on his blog a story about how Scientology Sea Organization droid Patrick Howson is altering some arcane Hubbard quote and using that to beg for more money.

Where are all the books?

What do the Sea Organization pimps do with all of that money? They only pay the Sea Org slaves about $40 a week.
