Scientology Dictator David Miscavige In a Free Fall in Colombia Over His Fake Medal

Retired Colombian Police General Carlos Ramiro Mena Bravo presented an unauthorized medal to David Miscavige. Outrage has ensued in Colombia over giving an American cult leader an undeserved and unauthorized medal. An investigation of this insult to Colombia in underway by the authorities.

Tom Cruise recently took late night show host James Corden skydiving. The two men skydived to promote Cruise’s monster box office film Mission Impossible – Fallout. In the video, Cruise showcased his expert skydiving skills while Corden nervously fumbled his way through his first jump in which he was attached to a master skydiver with 7,000 jumps. Cruise’s landing was picture perfect as he glided effortlessly to the ground. James Corden, on the other hand, skidded to a rather abrupt stop and then did a face plant.

If anyone could use Tom Cruise’s help with a parachute right now it is Scientology leader David Miscavige, a man who finds himself in a sudden, calamitous, and unexpected free fall in the Colombian media. Miscavige appears to be headed straight down for a face plant in Colombia.

Despite decades of Scientology “safepointing” itself in Colombia, no one in Colombia is coming to Miscavige’s defense as he is being pilloried in the media for having received a medal from a retired Colombian police general who had no authority to award the medal.

Never one for modesty, Miscavige went fullblown Messiah in this bizarre award ceremony and had the general give him the medal for, “saving humanity from violence, evil, terrorism, drug dealings and all the negative factors that threaten it.” This screenshot from davidmiscavige.org tells the story of Miscavige’s runaway ego:

David Miscavige is a certifiable megalomaniac. He actually believes that he has personally saved humanity from “violence, evil, terrorism, drug dealings and all the negative factors that threaten it.” Moreover, he wanted a medal given to him at a special ceremony in recognition of his having saved humanity. This is the delusional state in which Mr. Miscavige exists.

The basis of Miscavige’s medal is a ridiculous claim the Church of Scientology’s has been making for many years now. Specifically, Scientology claims that its efforts in distributing millions of copies of The Way to Happiness brought peace and calm to Colombia and therefore paved the way for the 2016 peace treaty between the Colombian government and FARC rebels that ended a 50 year civil war in Colombia. This claim so ridiculous that it deserves nothing but scorn. Here is the claim for Scientology’s own website:


Two things to note in this story:

1. The event at which Miscavige received his medal for saving humanity took place in Bridgetown, Barbados and not in Colombia. This is the first indication that the presentation of the medal was not authorized by the Colombian government; had it been authorized the event would have taken place dockside in the Port of Cartagena where the fifty-year old Freewinds frequently docks and/or goes into drydock for repairs.

2. Aside from the retired police General Carlos Ramiro Mena Bravo, there were no Colombian government, military, or police officials at the Barbados event. The absence of Colombian officials also indicates that this was not an authorized event. The retired General Mena has been rebuked for wearing his uniform without permission and displaying the Colombian flag and other state symbols without permission. Retired generals are not allowed to do these things without explicit permission as they no longer hold office and are civilians.


When David Miscavige opened the Bogota Ideal Org on July 15, 2015 there were several Colombian officials who spoke at the event and participated in the rope pull:

L-R: Dr. Sandra Rincón, Advisor to the Ministry of Social Integration, Bogotá City; Lt. Colonel Carlos Peña, Coordinator for Anti-Drug Education, Colombian Anti-Narcotics Department; Captain John Galindo, Operations Director, Circle of Aid Technicians of Colombia; David Miscavige; Lt. Colonel Anstrongh Polania, Chief of the Department of Joint Operational Law, Ministry of Defense; and Lt. Colonel Edgar Rojas, Special Ops Commander for Rural Zones, National Colombian Police.


DAVID MISCAVIGE — FALLOUT

Now that David Miscavige is in a free fall in the Colombian media, he suddenly has no friends or allies in the Colombian government — and indeed who would come forward to defend the man given his grandiose Messianic claims? Even Colonel Ricardo Antonio Prado, long the face of the Colombian National Police in Scientology PR and at its events, including events held on the Freewinds, has not appeared anywhere to defend Miscavige:

Colonel Ricardo Antonio Prado, the long-time champion of Scientology in the Colombian National Police. Will the David Miscavige scandal force him into retirement?

Miscavige has no defenders and is instead receiving his just and due comeuppance in a barrage of negative headlines. These headlines are translated via Google:


Text of a Google-Translated Article in Colombia



Translation via Google: Controversy for awarding leader of Scientology — The ceremony was held in Barbados, for “saving humanity from violence (…)”.


As portions of this translated article from El Espectaror makes clear, David Miscavige — in his perpetual quest for self-glorification — has gotten a retired Colombian general into trouble:



David Miscavige and the Church of Scientology have badly embarrassed themselves in Colombia. However, as of the date of publication of this article, Scientology has not issued a press release stating that David Miscavige would return this unauthorized and unsanctioned medal.

As this story continues to unfold, we’re wondering how many chartered planes full of Scientology lawyers bearing suitcases full of cash David Miscavige is flying down to Colombia in an attempt make the medal legitimate. On the other hand, no amount of money and lawyers is going to persuade anyone in Colombia to legitimize Miscavige’s claims to have saved humanity.Nevertheless, David Miscavige plays for keeps. In our view, he has no intention of giving up his fake medal and it will remain on his vanity website.


In our opinion, the entire matter reeks of a caper between a retired general and Scientology. There has been a claim put forward that the general authorized the medal while he was still in office in December 2017 but that Miscavige was not available to receive his medal for saving humanity and instead waited six months. This claim to legitimacy rings false. Miscavige charters a private jet when he travels. It would be nothing for him to fly from Tampa to Cartagena for an officially-sanctioned ceremony and award when the general was still in office. Instead, Miscavige waited six months to receive the award in an unsanctioned ceremony in Barbados at the end of the 30th Maiden Voyage cruise of the Freewinds.

General Mena Bravo surely must have known there would be blowback from the Colombian government and people for him giving an official award to an American cult leader. This is why, in our view, Mena played a game in which he technically authorized the award when he was in office but then waited until he was retired to award it. Mena broke the rules by wearing his uniform and using the Colombian flag, but so what? He is well established in Colombia and will likely receive a slap on the hand for this bit of capering. Alternately, if this story doesn’t die a quick death in the Colombian media, whatever Scientology paid Mena Bravo for this caper may be discovered and publicized. This is a calculated risk Mena chose to take.


When Pope Francis visited Colombia in September 2017, he was greeted in Bogota by President Juan Manual Santos and the First Lady. Thousands of people lined the streets for the Holy Father’s procession. There was no seedy ceremony in Barbados with a retired police general.

This is how a true global ecclesiastical leader is welcomed in Colombia:

Breaking News: David Miscavige’s Medal NOT AUTHORIZED by the Colombian Police!


As is being reported by International Scientology News and other sites, the medal Scientology leader David Miscavige received in Barbados from a retired Colombian Police official was not authorized by the Colombian Police. This explains why the ceremony was held in Barbados and not in the Colombian port of Cartagena.

Colombia Reports carried this headline:

The story is blowing up in Colombia and soon the news of David Miscavige’s fake medal will become international news. This story is reminiscent of David Miscavige’s fraud with the Atlantic Advertorial:

The article from a Google translation of an article in Colombia:

The publication on the website of David Miscavige, world leader of Scientology, of a decoration made by General (r) Carlos Mena last June, has generated controversy because the retired officer acted on behalf of the institution without his permission .

According to the Miscavige website, on June 23 in Bridgetown, Barbados, the officer, who is observed in the photographs in his police uniform, delivered “on behalf of the Colombian National Police” the transparency medal of the General Inspection Brigadier General Jaime Ramírez Gómez.

The resolution to grant said medal to Miscavige, apparently, was signed by the same General (r) Mena last December, when he was still Inspector General of the Police, a position he held until January, when he retired for having completed his years of service In the institution.

However, sources consulted by The W confirmed that neither in the current General Inspectorate nor in the Police Directorate were they aware of the trip of General (r) Mena to Barbados, which apparently was on June 22, for -estando uniformed- to decorate Miscavige in an act in which he was recognized as Inspector General of the Police and in which national symbols were displayed, such as the Colombian flag.

That is, as understood on the Miscavige website, General (r) Mena acted on behalf of the National Police, although he did not have authorization to do so.

Other retired officers consulted by La W explained that this type of acts or decorations could be done by a retired officer, only if the director of the Police, in this case General Jorge Hernando Nieto, authorizes it, which did not happen in This time.

For this reason, within the Police it is investigated what exactly happened and what actions the Institution could take by the use of its name in this act in foreign territory.

Tom Cruise, Kirstie Alley & Other Scientologists Lose Fake Followers in Twitter Fraud Purge


Scientology and social media fraud are synonymous. As we covered in a recent article, Scientology’s Fair Game on Mike Rinder in social media was based on a series of lies that the actual evidence conclusively disproves. Likewise, in Scientology’s attacks on Leah Remini, the evidence incontrovertibly showed that Scientology was using fake stock photo Scientologists.

Scientology has been lying for decades. Examples include vastly inflated membership numbers; denials that Church leader David Miscavige physically assaulted members of his staff; and absurd claims that Scientology reduced crime in Colombia by 50% .

All of Scientology’s lies and fraud are being methodically exposed even as the Church of Scientology continues to be systematically dismantled in its present form.

The next expose of Scientology’s fraud is that of the fake Twitter followers used by Scientologists including Tom Cruise, Kirstie Alley, the wannabe celeb with no real career Joy Villa, and others.

The great Twitter purge of Summer 2018 has begun and Scientologists are taking it on the chin for having so many fake Twitter followers. We begin with Tom Cruise who lost 287,882 fake followers in the opening round of the Twitter purge:

Marc Headley, author of Blown For Good: Behind the Iron Curtain of Scientology reported on Tom Cruise’s losses on Twitter where all the action is happening. The Dice Man and Justin Templar Sr. are also following the loss of Scientology’s fake followers — and these losses will certainly turn into an avalanche as the Twitter purge continues.

Kirstie Alley has lost -104,002 fake Twitter followers in the past 30 days:

Scientology singing pen mogul Joy Villa lost 33,363 fake followers. Her fake followers dropped from 180,870 down to 145,707. The number will continue to plummet:

Other Scientology losers:

Stacy Francis down -58,073 fake followers
Kelly Preston down 5,836 fake followers
Stand League down 2,823 fake followers
Jenna Elfman down 3,308 fake followers

All numbers can be verified by logging onto socialblade.com and entering a person’s Twitter name, e.g. @TomCruise. The page will display results.

This will be an ongoing story as Scientology watchers continue to track Scientology social media fraud. Please post comments or e-mail us at scienowriter@gmail.com.

Scientology Leader David Miscavige Pays the Colombian Police for a Medal

Official Scientology Photo Caption: “On behalf of the National Colombian Police, General Carlos Ramiro Mena Bravo presented Mr. Miscavige with the Brigadier General Jaime Ramírez Gómez Inspector General Transparency Medal. In presenting the medal General Mena declared: ‘The National Police praises, acknowledges and materializes our great gratitude for all the training, motivation and respect Mr. Miscavige has given, not only to every police officer and Colombian military officer, but to every citizen that has benefitted (sic) from L. Ron Hubbard’s technology and the humanitarian campaigns he inspired… Thank you for your invaluable support in helping us build a new society and for making us part of your team.’”

David Miscavige loves wearing medals. And now it looks like the self-aggrandizing Scientology Dictator has paid the corruption-ridden Colombian Police for a medal. As reported by our good friend Pete Griffiths on Facebook, the proclamation declaring Miscavige a hero is nauseating:

The National Colombian Police presented “a medal of the highest honor to the ecclesiastical leader of the Scientology religion, Mr. David Miscavige, for “saving humanity from violence, evil, terrorism, drug dealings and all the negative factors that threaten it… In an official presentation ceremony held at the launch point and final stop of the Maiden Voyage in Bridgetown, Barbados, National Colombian Police General Carlos Ramiro Mena Bravo presented Mr. Miscavige with the Brigadier General Jaime Ramírez Gómez Inspector General Transparency Medal. The award is among the most prestigious of the National Police and represents ‘courage, bravery and honesty’ and the ‘display of the highest ideals, morals and ethical values.’”

David Miscavige is so deluded that he actually believes he deserves a medal for, “saving humanity from violence, evil, terrorism, drug dealings and all the negative factors that threaten it.” This is so completely absurd that the language itself is an indictment of David Miscavige’s uncontrollable narcissism.

The vainglorious Scientology Dictator had his fake Navy and his cash barge The Freewinds serve as props in the background to this lunatic cultic charade:

Miscavige’s attorney Jeffrey Riffer wrote a few years ago of his client:

Mr. Miscavige is the leader of a dynamic global religion expanding across five continents. His duties are herculean and accomplishments monumental.

In another letter Riffer wrote:

Mr. Miscavige is one of the great individuals of our time… He is a man of impeccable character… He has improved, enriched or saved millions of lives. He has done so
personally and through the Church’s numerous social betterment programs that he
initiated or expanded and that are available for Scientologists and non-Scientologists alike.

My Prediction: This ceremony was done for PR reasons, but primarily to serve as fodder for Scientology TV. Look for the special to air on the Scientology Cult Network (SCN) as a paean to David Miscavige. This medal from the Colombian Police serves as a companion piece to the David Miscavige self-love video in which he was praised by Colonel Prado of the Colombian Army. Never one for immodesty, Miscavige himself translated Colonel Prado’s praise:

Memo to David Miscavige: You are a truly disgusting and evil human being who belongs in prison. Here are some real heroes:
