David Miscavige

The Strongest Evidence Yet for Scientology Having Only 27,000 Members Worldwide

Scientology TV on Twitter has 26,943 followers. The account was created on June 4, 2014 and has now had four years to build a base of followers. And yet, Scientology TV’s Twitter following has plateaued at just under 27,000 followers.

We believe Scientology TV’s Twitter followers are the strongest evidence ever seen for the actual global membership size of the Church of Scientology in 2018.

The reasons for our conclusion:

1. David Miscavige put his full weight behind the acquisition, renovation, and launch of Scientology TV. As such, all Scientologists would be expected to get onboard and fully support Scientology TV. This includes following Scientology TV on Twitter.

2. David Miscavige went on a publicly televised show for only the second time in his career to introduce and launch Scientology TV. Again, all Scientologists would be expected to support David Miscavige by getting onboard and fully supporting Scientology TV.

3. The Church of Scientology funded a massive advertising campaign for Scientology TV. There have been commercials on broadcast television, major sporting events such as the Super Bowl and the World Cup, cable networks, and on social media platforms.

4. The massive Scientology ad campaign focuses on the line: “Curious? We Thought So.” This is Scientology’s attempt to redefine controversy into curiosity. This attempt is not at all convincing — but it does show how desperate Scientology is to use Scientology TV somehow spin the perpetual and self-created controversies and horror stories in which it is continually engulfed.

5. The Church of Scientology has purchased billboards and radio spots nationally in the US to promote Scientology TV.

6. The total Twitter likes of Scientology TV, we believe, reflect the total membership of Scientology. We think Scientology’s global membership breaks down approximately as follows:

A. 22,000 public members.

B. 5,000 Sea Org and Staff members.

7. Tony Ortega reported that Scientology staff members have been ordered to watch Scientology TV. Such an order would come from David Miscavige personally. Below are copies of the orders Tony posted at the Underground Bunker; the nature of these orders is such that Scientology publics would be expected to comply to forward “Command Intention” as its called in Scientology.

 

 

Tom Cruise and David Miscavige Have Brunch & L. Ron Hubbard Was Supposed to “Make Himself Visible” by 1999

The Church of Scientology sent this now widely-circulated photo of Tom Cruise and David Miscavige to the Los Angeles Times for its feature article on Scientology. Published December 5, 2004 both the photo and the Times caption are unintentionally hilarious:

A STAR AND HIS LEADER: Tom Cruise and David Miscavige after a brunch at Scientology’s Celebrity Centre in Hollywood about a year ago.

Tom Cruise and David Miscavige send mixed signals in the photo. They want to present a sinister image of themselves as planetary-clearing, Psych-busting, bad-ass, leather-wearing Scientologists on their matching Ducati’s. However, bad-ass bikers don’t do brunch. The photo looks like a sultry urban bromance more than anything else.

In the L.A. Times article of 2004 we learn several interesting facts:

1. David Miscavige had molds made of his feet so that he could order custom made shoes:

2. Scientology acquired the old Gilman Hot Springs resort for $2.78 million in 1978. The resort became the home to Scientology’s Gold Base where the infamous “musical chairs” event occurred. This event was first reported on by Marc Headley at xenu.net. This was when Marc was writing under the screen name Blownforgood. Marc’s book Blown For Good: Behind the Iron Curtain of Scientology is a true classic.

3. The Church used the names “Scottish Highland Quietude Society” and “Western States Scientific Assn.” to purchase the Gilman Hot Springs resort. Scientology did not want anyone to know who the real buyer was. This was the same dishonest method whereby Scientology acquired its first properties in Clearwater.

4. Scientology spent “at least $45 million” on improvements Gold Base in the period 1978-2004. The LA Times article does not mention Scientology’s sniper nest and lookout station at Gold Base that was named the Eagle’s Nest. Details are in my 2014 podcast with Jackson Morehead, the former Security Chief at the Base. In this podcast Jackson covers the big fire that was caused by toilet paper being set afire, the razor wire fences, and the sniper rifles at the Base:

5. Scientology was planning on a television station as early as 2004. Scientology TV was launched March 12, 2018 — a glacial fourteen years later. The “speed of particle flow” was slow on this project.

6. Scientology spent $9.4 million to build a mansion on its Gold Base for the deceased L. Ron Hubbard. The article informs us that Ron’s mansion is named Bonnie View and has a lap pool and a movie theater. Looks like Ron wants to do laps in his pool and watch movies when he returns from Target 2.

7. David Miscavige told Sea Org members that the Bonnie View mansion needed to built quickly as L. Ron Hubbard was returning and would make himself visible within thirteen years of his 1986 death. Former Sea Org member Karen Schless Pressley, author of Escaping Scientology: An Insider’s True Story, was quoted in the LA Times 2004 on Hubbard’s mansion and David Miscavige’s claim that Hubbard would soon appear:

A teenage L. Ron Hubbard never made himself visible by 1999 as promised by Scientology leader David Miscavige.

This is hardly surprising as David Miscavige’s prophetic track record has been abysmal:

* The Ideal Orgs have not boomed Scientology or even moved the needle

* Scientology TV was dead on arrival. Scientology’s “uncorrupted communication line to the billions” is an infomercial of incredible boredom and repetition.

* The new Flag Building in Clearwater did not boom Scientology.

* Scientology did not destroy Psychiatry by the year 2000 as Miscavige predicted

Finally, Miscavige got these predictions incredibly wrong when he made them in 1992 during the 25th Anniversary of the Sea Org:

Scientology: No New Twitter Followers in the Past 18 Months ; Scientology TV Producing No Results!!

As the statistics on socialblade.com make clear, the Church of Scientology gained no new followers on Twitter in the period April 2018 — July 2018.

With the exception of adding about 1,800 followers in the period November 2017 — February 2018, Scientology on Twitter flatlined and has been dead since January 2017.

However, the ~1800 the Twitter followers Scientology added were all lost on July 17, 2018 when Twitter stripped Scientology of 1,882 fake followers.

Essentially, Scientology has been dead on Twitter from January 2017 through July 2018. Eighteen months of no new Twitter followers!

David Miscavige’s $100 million dollar white elephant a/k/a Scientology TV has had zero impact on social media.

Scientology Caught in Yet More Social Media Fraud! It Never Ends!

Ron Miscavige interviewed Leah Remini this past Sunday. It was a tremendous interview. Part of the interview focused on Shelly Miscavige, the missing wife of Scientology dictator David Miscavige.

Shelly has not been seen in public for at least ten years and is presumed to be locked away in a Scientology facility. David Miscavige controls the $100 million dollar Scientology TV network and so it’s not like it would be any work for him to do a half hour piece on Shelly to address the controversy once and for all. If David Miscavige put Shelly on Scientology TV then the problem over Shelly’s disappearance would be solved once and for all. This begs the question: Why doesn’t David Miscavige want his wife Shelly to be seen on Scientology TV or anywhere else for that matter? What is he hiding?

Scientology’s Office of Special Affairs got very mad about Ron and Leah’s interview as did David Miscavige. Accordingly, OSA dive-bombed on the YouTube comments to the podcast. Another hysteria of rage by David Miscavige.

Even after being totally exposed for social media fraud and the use of Stock Photo Scientologists, OSA trotted out the imaginary Scientologist named Alicia Selverson once again. This time, however, OSA used a different stock photo:


The previous version of Alicia Selverson looked like this:

The new Alicia Selverson is actually the Russian actress and screenwriter Valery Fedorovich:

David Miscavige and OSA are engaging in identity theft and conspiracy to commit online fraud. I truly hope Valery Fedorovich sues David Miscavige and Scientology in Russia for damages. It would also be great to see Russia criminally charge David Miscavige and Scientology for using a Russian citizen to perpetrate Scientology’s social media fraud.

The IRS has been notified of yet another example of Scientology using tax exempt dollars to commit social media fraud. Scientology’s tax exemption must be revoked. Please sign my petition calling for the IRS to open an investigation to revoke Scientology’s tax exemption.

If you have already signed it, I thank you for your support.

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.

Scientologist Stacy Francis: Using Fake Twitter Followers to Attack Leah Remini

Scientologist Stacy Francis and one of her fake Twitter followers named Shahd Abdelgawad. The clickfarm from which Scientology purchased this follower was too lazy to even post a photo of the nonexistent follower. This fake follower joined in July 2018, a date coincident with Stacy Francis’ Fair Game attacks on Leah Remini. 


Scientology TV is a failure.

With Leah Remini’s show Scientology and the Aftermath going into season 3, Scientology dictator David Miscavige and his followers are panicked and have kicked their sleazy Fair Game campaigns into high gear on “wog” social media.

What this amply proves is that Miscavige’s $100 million dollar Scientology TV has no actual reach or audience. If Scientology TV had an audience then Miscavige would not be forced to use secular social media to press Scientology’s Fair Game attacks.

In the Cult’s latest social media attack on Leah Remini, Scientologist Stacy Francis has been deployed. Francis made an extremely disgusting and dishonest attack video about Leah. This is not surprising as Scientologists blindly obey and do whatever Scientology orders them to do. This blind obedience is one of the reasons Scientology is considered a Cult.


STACY FRANCIS?

If you’ve never heard of Stacy Francis you’re not alone. Like her fellow Scientologist Jim Meskimen, Stacy never made it into the big leagues of celebrity. The 49 year old Francis is best known for her 2011 appearance on X Factor where Simon Cowell praised her initial signing audition. However, Simon later cast the deciding vote and sent Stacy Francis home. Stacy placed 10th overall in the competition. In an elimination round, Stacy Francis lost to a 14 year old prodigy named Brian Bradley whose stage name is Astro.

Whitney Houston     (1963-2012)

Stacy Francis is infamous for having gotten into a heated fight with legendary pop signer Whitney Houston at a nightclub two days before Houston’s tragic and untimely death in 2012. Whitney’s fans have never forgiven Stacy Francis for belligerently attacking Whitney when the singer was obviously in very bad shape two days before her death.

Stacy Francis is an angry person and Scientology seems to have not helped her at all her with her anger issues.


After X Factor, Stacy Francis continued singing but she never got a big record deal. X Factor was the height of Francis’ career and her fortunes declined thereafter. Stacy Francis seems to have been largely relegated to singing at Scientology events. She sang at Tom Cruise’s birthday on The Freewinds and has sang at the Celebrity Centre International in Hollywood numerous times.


Left: Even in Scientology circles Stacy Francis does not enjoy any real popularity. Her recent April 29, 2018 appearance at Scientology’s Hibiscus Restaurant in Clearwater only drew 21 people who showed any interest.


After X Factor in 2011, Stacy Francis’ next foray into the spotlight was in 2017 on the UK’s Celebrity Big Brother (CBB) television program. Whitney Houston’s fans vociferously objected as a 2017 story in the Daily Mail reported.

 

Celebrity Big Brother did not go well for Stacy Francis and she was evicted from the Celebrity house. This series of clips from her appearance on the show displays the angry and profanity-laden outbursts that led to Stacy’s eviction from the Celebrity House:


STACY FRANCIS THE FLIP-FLOPPER

In 2016, Francis sang for Hillary Clinton at the 2016 Democratic National Convention. Her over-singing and lackluster performance there failed to get the singer any traction or record deal.

In this same period of time Joy Villa was a Bernie Sanders supporter. Everything changed for Joy when she wore Andre Soriano’s MAGA dress to the 2017 Grammys. Suddenly, Scientologist Joy Villa was thrust into the spotlight and jumped on the Trump Train to ride it for all it’s worth.

In 2018 Stacy Francis followed Joy Villa and jumped ship. She abandoned Hillary and crossed over to the Trump-Evangelical Christian-GOP side of things in hopes that she would fare better there. And so we saw Scientologists Joy Villa and Stacy Francis showing up to sing and speak at Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition “Road to Majority” Event in June 2018.

Stacy Francis suddenly transformed from a Pro-Abortion Hillary Democrat to a Pro-Life Trump Republican who wants to Make America Great Again. In Scientology, this is called being a flip-flopper. Stacy Francis can’t “hold a position in space” as Hubbard admonished his followers to do.

Like Joy Villa, Stacy Francis is a Scientology opportunist who will be whatever she needs to be to get an audience and safepoint Scientology: Democrat; Republican; Evangelical Christian; LGBTQ supporter; Hillary supporter; Bernie supporter; Pro-Abortion; Pro-Life; Trump supporter, etc.  Whatever it takes. But underneath it all, both Joy and Stacy’s real loyalty is to the Church of Scientology.


STACY FRANCIS’ PHONY TWITTER FOLLOWERS

Stacy Francis has purchased fake Twitter followers for herself as her page shows:

The reason we know these are fake followers is that Stacy’s pinned tweet only has 10 likes. It is impossible to have 269,000 real followers and have your pinned tweet that’s been up for two weeks receive only 10 likes:


Due to Stacy Francis’ relative obscurity as a celebrity, Scientology’s Office of Special Affairs has had to purchase additional fake followers for Stacy. Most of Stacy Francis’ fake followers are factory fresh and were created in foreign clickfarms within the past two months.

In three of the fake profiles shown below, the first comment is written in Russian on July 3rd by the same fake person named Daria Stepanova. There is no quality control at work in Scientology’s social media fraud. This is sloppy work that doesn’t hold up under scrutiny. Here are a few of Stacy Francis’ fake followers:


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:

 

Scientologists Stacy Francis and Joy Villa Pretend to Be Evangelical Christians

Joy.Taryn.Stacy

 Scientology’s Damage Control Team: L-R: Stacy Francis, Taryn Teutsch, Joy Villa

As season 3 of Leah Remini’s Emmy winning show Scientology and the Aftermath approaches, David Miscavige and the Church of Scientology have gone into an apoplectic foaming-at-the-mouth hysteria of rage. This rage betrays the intense fear of exposure at the core of Scientology.


A Message from Leah Remini to Scientology Operatives


In response to the upcoming third season of Leah Remini’s show, Scientology’s Office of Special Affairs has conducted an erratic and schizophrenic damage control campaign that is quite transparent.

Even as OSA wages a malicious campaign of Fair Game against Leah Remini, Mike Rinder, and the brave guests who appear on Leah’s show, OSA has also fielded Scientology operatives Joy Villa and Stacy Francis in an attempt to convince Christian Evangelicals that people can be both Christians and Scientologists.

Scientologists Joy Villa and Stacy Francis have promoted themselves as ardent Christians and Donald Trump supporters in what appears to be a desperate attempt to pander to the Trump Administration. Given that Scientology’s long-time Washington D.C. lobbyist Greg Mitchell is involved behind the scenes, we consider that OSA is orchestrating this in a frantic hope of staving off an inevitable IRS investigation into Scientology’s tax exemption.

From our perspective, Stacy Francis and Joy Villa are trying to “safepoint” Scientology in Washington D.C. However, when one contrasts this with the 1990’s and 2000’s when Scientology was able to deploy John Travolta and Tom Cruise to D.C. to influence President Clinton and the Bush 43 Administration, it becomes apparent that OSA is scraping the bottom of the barrel with Villa and Francis.

LOVE YOUR ENEMIES

One of the central contradictions with Scientologists pretending to be Christians is that Jesus commanded his followers to love their enemies. We read the words of Jesus in Luke 6:27-36:

But to you who are listening I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you,bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. If someone takes your coat, do not withhold your shirt from them. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you.

Christ’s commandment that Christians are to love their enemies is directly antithetical to L. Ron Hubbard’s incredibly violent policy of Fair Game in which he calls for the literal bodily injury and destruction, or death, of Scientology’s enemies:

“ENEMY SP Order. Fair game. May be deprived of property or injured by any means by any Scientologist without any discipline of the Scientologist. May be tricked, sued or lied to or destroyed.”- L. Ron Hubbard, Hubbard Communications Office Policy Letter, 18 October 1967

Joy Villa and Stacy Francis have never publicly disavowed L. Ron Hubbard’s Fair Game doctrine. This fact alone puts the lie to their claims to be Christian.

Scientology wants to portray itself as religious even as it continues to savagely attack those it deems enemies. Scientology’s three main actors in its recent psychotic soap opera are Scientologists Stacy Francis, Taryn Teutsch, and Joy Villa.

JOY VILLA & STACY FRANCIS

Scientologist Stacy Francis singing at Ralph Reed’s Faith & Freedom “Road to Majority” event in June 2018. Along with her fellow Scientologist Joy Villa, Stacy Francis also passed herself off as a Trump supporter and a Christian at this event.

Joy Villa and Stacy Francis showed up last month at Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” event. We covered this in a previous article, Ralph Reed, the Faith & Freedom Coalition, and Scientology. Despite her claims to be a Christian, when Stacy Francis appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2017 she showed her true colors:

That Ralph Reed and his people were taken in by these two Scientology charlatans who claimed to be Christians is not surprising: Villa has been taking advantage of the trust of Evangelicals for the past eighteen months. Villa has falsely claimed to Evangelicals that Scientology is merely a set of self-help tools. She has also said that a person can be both a Christian and a Scientologist. However, this is demonstrably false from a biblical perspective. See our essay: Why You Can’t be a Christian and a Scientologist.

SCIENTOLOGY & THE NATION OF ISLAM

Scientology’s efforts to position itself as a Christian-friendly organization is completely exposed as a lie given Scientology’s partnership with the anti-Semitic Nation of Islam. Louis Farrakhan’s account was decertified by Twitter for his recent incendiary tweet and video in which he railed against the Jews:

We note that the Church of Scientology never publicly censured nor rebuked Mr. Farrakhan for his incendiary anti-Semitic tweet. We are therefore forced to conclude that the Church of Scientology condones Mr. Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism and that of the Nation of Islam. To this point, Stacy Francis certainly appears to have no problem with Mr. Farrakhan’s views and seems quite fond of him as can be seen in this photo taken at a Scientology event:

Scientologists Stacy Francis, Alfreddie Johnson, and Louis Farrakhan

Long-time Farrakhan supporter Congressman Danny Davis (D) of Illinois recently took the extraordinary step of publicly disavowing Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism. Congressman Davis issued a statement on his official Congressional webpage in which he unequivocally stated, “I reject, condemn and oppose Minister Farrakhan’s views and remarks regarding the Jewish people and the Jewish religion.”

That Scientology leader David Miscavige refuses to make a comparable statement shows the Scientology leader’s apparent tolerance of, or even agreement with, Farrakhan’s anti-Semitism. David Miscavige has long claimed to be a “global ecclesiastical leader” and yet shows no moral leadership whatsoever on this issue.

Joy Villa and Stacy Francis claim to be enthusiastic supporters of President Trump. However, Mr. Trump has unequivocally stated his support for Israel and the Jewish people. Given the President’s position here, it would seem incumbent upon Joy Villa and Stacy Francis to fall in line with the President’s position, and particularly as they claim to be Republicans and Evangelical Christians, and publicly condemn the anti-Semitism of Mr. Farrakhan.


TARYN TEUTSCH


Over against Scientology’s incursions into pro-Trump Evangelical Christian circles, Scientology has been engaged in an absolutely hellbent non-Christian Fair Game campaign against Mike Rinder.

The Scientology Money Project has been reporting on OSA operative and Sea Org member Taryn Teutsch and her malicious Fair Game attacks against her father Mike Rinder. We exposed Taryn’s outright lies in a series of articles, the most damning of which was The Paramedics Report on Cathy Bernardini: Why Taryn Teutsch’s Fair Game Attack on Mike Rinder Falls Apart.

As we documented, Taryn Teutsch outrageously tried to link her sleazy Fair Game campaign to the #MeToo movement. This is an utter disgrace and a deep insult to the women who are the actual victims of sexual harassment and rape.

We must point out that this attempt to link Taryn’s Fair to Game attacks to the #MeToo movement was ordered by none other than Scientology Cult boss David Miscavige — the man who has kept his own wife Shelly Miscavige locked away in a high security Scientology facility for over ten years.

Below are links to our continuing coverage of Taryn Teutsch and Scientology’s Fair Game attacks on Mike Rinder. We plan to continue our coverage of this Scientology Fair Game campaign in order to document the exact conduct of Scientology.

The Paramedics Report on Cathy Bernardini: Why Taryn Teutsch’s Fair Game Attack on Mike Rinder Falls Apart

             Scientology Sea Org member Cathy Bernardini

Scientology leader David Miscavige has panicked with the approach of Season 3 of Leah Remini’s Emmy-winning program Scientology and the Aftermath. Eager to discredit the show, Miscavige has ordered an all-out Fair Game attack against Mike Rinder. Miscavige has even resorted to calling in Kirstie Alley for help.

Spearheaded by Mike’s daughter Taryn, this Fair Game campaign has been exposed as a Scientology social media fraud held together by a tissue of lies. Of course, this latest Scientology pack of lies is paid for with tax-exempt dollars courtesy of Scientology’s IRS 501(c)3 tax exemption. Please help by signing our petition asking the IRS to open an investigation into revoking Scientology’s tax exemption for fraud, malfeasance, and material misrepresentation of facts.

CATHY BERNARDINI

In this article we examine the claims made by Mike’s ex-wife Cathy Bernardini. Specifically, Cathy claims that Mike assaulted her during an episode in a Florida parking on March 23, 2010. Cathy further claims that the assault resulted in permanent and crippling injury to her right shoulder. This is the story that “Clickfarm Taryn” Teutsch has been unsuccessfully trying to peddle with the help of fake social media followers purchased by Scientology.

THE PARAMEDICS REPORT

Scientology used its own website to place the Pinellas County Emergency Medical Services Patient Care Report on Cathy Bernardini into the public domain. As a public domain document we are free to examine and repost it here.

A paramedics report is colloquially known as the “paramedics run sheet” or just the “run sheet.” In this article we look at the paramedics run sheet to get the facts. We begin with the first page of the run sheet. We use red arrows to draw the reader’s attention to two pertinent areas we cover in this article.


In the upper right hand corner we learn that the Paramedics were called at 12:28 PM on March 23, 2010 and arrived on scene at 12:34 PM. The paramedics examined Cathy Bernardini and applied a gauze dressing to her right forearm.

The Paramedics were then available for another call at 12:58 PM. The actual time the paramedics spent on scene was 24 minutes. Over against this, Scientology claims that Cathy Bernardini was severely injured. Scientology asks us to believe that the paramedics spent only 24 minutes on scene treating a severely injured person. Read on as the Scientology saga becomes more absurd and breaks down upon examination.

RATE YOUR PAIN ON A SCALE OF 0-10

The paramedics asked Cathy to rate her pain or distress on a scale from 0-10. Cathy Bernardini told the paramedics that her pain or distress level was 2. The paramedics recorded the Pain or Distress Level on their run sheet and noted that the patient herself was the “history source” of the pain or distress level of 2:

In Cathy Bernardini’s Fair Game video on Mike she describes an excruciating and vicious attack during which she could hear bones crunching. This contradicts her telling the paramedics on scene that her pain level was 2 on a scale of 0-10. Indeed, the run sheet shows that Cathy had only a “skin tear” on her right forearm:


Nowhere in the above diagram did the paramedics note any problems with Cathy’s right shoulder. Cathy’s claim to have heard her “bones crunching” does not jibe with the paramedics reporting only a skin tear and Cathy herself reporting her pain level as 2. Moreover, Cathy did not tell the paramedics that her right shoulder had been injured.

THE GREEN ZONE

Based upon Cathy Bernardini’s own statements, the paramedics rated the severity of Cathy’s injury in the Green Zone:

In the Pinellas County Medical Operations Manual, paramedics rate a patient’s condition as follows:

If Cathy had been “severely injured” as she claimed, she would have minimally been rated in the yellow zone. But no. Cathy’s condition was Green Zone: “Non-Urgent; requiring care in a reasonable amount of time, but will likely not suffer adverse effects from a limited delay in definitive care.”

SOFT TISSUE INJURY

The paramedics run sheet shows Cathy to have a soft tissue injury on her right forearm and nothing else. There is no mention of a crippling shoulder injury nor did Cathy Bernardini report such an injury at the scene. The evidence is completely at odds with Taryn Teutsch’s and Cathy Bernardini’s manufactured tale of a crippling assault that permanently disabled Cathy’s shoulder.

To this point, paramedics are legally obligated to report all criminal assaults to the police. The paramedics at the scene made no such report to the police. This is corroborated by the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Department report that dismissed the matter as “incidental contact.”

It is crucial to note that Pinellas County Sheriff’s deputies were at the scene. The deputies had been called after the Scientologists attempted to forcibly enter a doctor’s office in order to follow Mike Rinder into the office — this in an attempt to continue their screaming and profane-laden harassment of Mike. Mike had entered the doctor’s office to escape the mob and get to his fiance Christie Collbran who was being treated in the doctor’s office. When the doctor’s staff ordered the unruly Scientology mob leave the office — which office was private property — the mob refused and the police had to be called.

The Sheriff’s deputies arrived on scene, interviewed all parties, and examined Cathy Bernardini. The deputies conferred with the paramedics. A deputy on scene even signed Cathy’s medical release as one of the two required witnesses. The deputies concluded there was no assault and wrote in their official report that the matter was non-criminal in nature. Taryn and Cathy’s story falls apart on this point alone.

We note that Cathy Bernardini never filed a personal injury lawsuit against Mike Rinder. Cathy had five people with her in the Scientology lynch mob that day and they were all eyewitnesses. Except for Cathy and Taryn, none of the other Scientologists present that day have made videos corroborating Cathy and Taryn’s claims.

TRANSPORT TO THE NEAREST EMERGENCY ROOM

Under Pinellas County law, paramedics are required to transport all patients to the “closest appropriate hospital emergency department.” Here is the text from the manual:


The paramedics run sheet notes that Cathy Bernardini was ambulatory at the scene. After evaluating Cathy the paramedics, per policy, presumed that Cathy needed transport to closest appropriate hospital emergency department.

As we read in the run sheet, however, Cathy Bernardini twice refused transport to a hospital emergency department:

Cathy (Rinder) Bernardini also signed the run sheet section to indicate her individual refusal for ambulance transportation. Bernardini further signed the Release of Medical Assistance on the run sheet. Cathy refusal’s to be transported to an emergency room and her Release of Medical Assistance were witnessed and signed by a Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office (PCSO) deputy and a member of the paramedics (EMS) crew:

The evidence on the paramedics run sheet and Bernardini’s signed refusal to be transported and signed Release of Medial Assistance leads us to ask two key questions: If Cathy Bernardini was the victim of vicious and crippling assault as she and her daughter Taryn so dramatically claim, then why did Cathy report a pain level of only 2 and twice refuse to be transported to the nearest hospital emergency room? Certainly an actual victim of a brutal and crippling attack would report a very high pain level and would want to be rushed to the nearest emergency room for emergency treatment. The glaring discrepancies between what Cathy Bernardini claims now in her Fair Game attacks in 2018 versus what actually happened in 2010 are extremely significant.

Taryn Teutsch was present at the scene. However, she did not insist that her own mother be transported by paramedics for examination in the nearest emergency room. In her Fair Game attacks on her father, Taryn demands justice. And yet when her own mother allegedly suffered a crippling assault and injury Taryn did nothing. Where is the justice and moral responsibility on Taryn’s part if Mom was so gravely injured? We take Taryn doing nothing to mean that nothing more needed to be done: Mom had a scrape on her arm and the paramedics applied a dressing. End of story. What likely happened next is that Taryn and Cathy left the scene and drove away — presumably to debrief OSA on the ambush.

HYSTERICAL SCIENTOLOGY MELODRAMA

Scientology’s hate website spins the same bogus story in a melodramatic video. In these next two screen shots we are told that “A team of paramedics rushed to treat his severely injured wife.” Right. Cathy was so “severely injured” that her pain level was 2 and she refused transport to an ER. This is complete and utter nonsense.

Cathy was so “severely injured” that the paramedics did not need to put Cathy in a cervical collar and place her on a backboard. Emergency transport by helicopter was not needed. An IV was not started. No pain medications were administered. All the paramedics actually did was apply dressing to the abrasion on Cathy’s forearm. Gauze and antiseptic ointment. That was the extent of the medical treatment as shown in photos of her arm Cathy Bernardini herself posted.

Taryn and Cathy are telling a fake story. Worse, the two are trying to inject their fake story into the #MeToo movement, this in an attempt to get Mike fired and discredit Leah’s show. This transparent Scientology fraud is disgusting — particularly when we consider L. Ron Hubbard’s absolutely disgusting view of women.

DR. JAMES BELL

Dr. James Bell has been dragged into this Scientology Fair Game campaign. Dr. Bell was not an eyewitness to what happened in the parking lot. Therefore, it appears he accepted Cathy Bernardini’s version of the events at face value. Having accepted Cathy’s account at face value, Dr. Bell agreed to make a video for Scientology detailing Cathy’s claimed injury:


Were Dr. Bell to be put on the stand in a court of law and asked if Cathy’s shoulder problem could have been caused by age-related degeneration, a repetitive motion injury, or a prior injury or accident related to a dislocated shoulder or a broken arm what would he say? Has Dr. Bell seen all of Cathy’s prior medical records?

Dr. Bell has no firsthand knowledge of what actually happened in the parking lot whereas the actual audio recording of the event is on YouTube. The paramedics run sheet and the Sheriff’s report are also in the public domain — and neither of these official documents corroborate Taryn Teutsch’s story. Is Cathy Bernardini withholding something?


SCIENTOLOGY OTVIII KIRSTIE ALLEY: MALICIOUS RUMOR MONGERER

David Miscavige toady Kirstie Alley jumped into Taryn’s Teutsch’s Fair Game campaign. By doing so, Kirstie became what Scientology calls a “malicious rumor mongerer” and a “false data spreader.”


WHY DIDN’T DIANETICS OR SCIENTOLOGY HELP CATHY BERNARDINI?

The fact that Cathy Bernardini and her doctor state that she has a permanent injury requires us to ask why the technology of Dianetics and Scientology was unable to help Cathy alleviate the pain of her injury or otherwise help her in any way. Does Cathy’s injury negate the claimed efficacy of Dianetics and Scientology since neither have apparently helped her? Cathy Bernardini has never once made a statement that she resorted to Dianetics and Scientology for help. Instead, we hear her recite her litany of medical treatment and surgery. L. Ron Hubbard derided medical doctors as “medicos” and yet Cathy needed the medicos.

Phil and Willie Jones: And Now for the Rest of the Story…

IMG_4665

Outfront Media cancelled a signed contract they had with Phil & Willie Jones to display the couple’s “Call Me” ad on a billboard.

Now Outfront Media seems to have a contract with the Church of Scientology for a Scientology TV billboard. Jeremy Male, CEO of Outfront Media, earns our “Scientology Corporate Whore” award for June 2018. Enjoy your award Mr. Male. Media buyers everywhere should be cognizant of the disgraceful refusal of your firm to stand up for a fundamental human rights issue in favor of a payday from the Cult of Scientology.

The Call Me billboard went up thanks to Lamar Media and Clear Channel taking a stand and not caving into the Scientology Cult. Phil and Willie Jones are among the many brave and good people in this world who will stand up and fight the Church of Scientology’s brutal and sadistic policy of Disconnection:
