Fair Game

Evidence of a Targeted Scientology Threat Against an Individual

Aaron Smith-Levin tweeted a letter from the Church of Scientology to a private individual. That person gave Aaron permission to publicly repost this letter and we do so here at the Scientology Money Project.

This letter from Scientology is a threat, a form of psychological intimidation against Anthony Nelson and his wife. Scientology clearly accuses Nelson’s wife as being the reason he is no longer doing Scientology.

This letter is an explicit attempt by Scientology to interfere in a marriage by characterizing Nelson’s wife as someone who is preventing her husband from going forward in Scientology. In other words, Scientology is calling her an SP. As such, the letter tacitly asserts Scientology doctrine of Fair Game in which SP’s may be tricked, lied to, and destroyed.

Given Nelson’s knowledge of Scientology Office of Special Affairs and its ability to conduct Fair Game operations against persons deemed SP’s, this letter is a thinly-veiled threat that Nelson’s wife should stop interfering with him doing Scientology. The Church arrogantly presumes that Mr. Nelson would go forward with Scientology were it not for his SP wife.

This is a truly creepy, threatening, and disturbing letter:

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:


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.

Scientology Boss David Miscavige Panics; Brings in Kirstie Alley to Engage in Sleazy Fair Game Campaign Against Mike Rinder


Even as Scientology Cult boss David Miscavige keeps his wife Shelly Miscavige locked away in a high security Scientology facility, he has been trying to hijack the #MeToo movement in order to engage in a sleazy Scientology Fair Game attack against Mike Rinder.

Taryn Teutsch having proved to be an epic failure, David Miscavige has now brought Kirstie Alley into the Fair Game attacks on Mike Rinder:


Kirstie Alley? Seriously? Kirstie Alley has tweeted about her compulsion to slug people “in the vagina or the nuts” in order to shame them:


Kirstie advocates physical violence even as Taryn Teutsch demands that physically violent people be put in a special registry just like sex offenders. To follow Taryn’s logic, then, Kirstie Alley would need to be placed in such a registry given her publicly stated desire to slug people in their genitals in order to humiliate them. This is grotesque on Kirstie Alley’s part and yet Kirstie is apparently the only Scientologist David Miscavige has available to go on the attack.

David Miscavige is clearly panicking as Leah Remini’s show gears up for season three. He has to do something and all he has right now is Kirstie Alley. Kirstie’s more memorable photos show her hostility:


What is David Miscavige thinking?

*****
As we have made clear in our previous posts, Mike Rinder was in his car making calls in a parking lot in Florida in 2010. Suddenly he was ambushed by an angry lynch mob of Scientologists that included Taryn Teutsch, Mike’s ex-wife Cathy Bernardini, and others. Mike was on the phone with John Sweeney who was then with the BBC. Sweeney recorded the debacle in which Taryn and Cathy scream and drop the F bomb. This is what Taryn is hiding. This is what Taryn is lying about:

Taryn’s uncontrolled and profane rage in this recording show what really happened in that parking lot in 2010. The Sheriff’s report said there was no injury, no victim, and only “incidental contact” as Mike made his way through the Scientology mob in order to get to his then fiance Christie Collbran.

Taryn Teutsch is trying to spin an eight year old Scientology ambush — and one in which she herself participated — into an absurd and concocted story that never happened. While Taryn has managed to con some trusting people, these people have been informed of her con job. This effort to expose Scientology’s lies and Fair Game will continue.

As the ample body of evidence in our previous posts has shown, Taryn’s campaign of lies is fraudulent:

Scientology TV, Taryn Teutsch, and L. Ron Hubbard’s Disgusting View of Women

Leila.Grace.Foundation.1

Taryn Teutsch spoke at the Leila Grace Foundation. This foundation is a, “is a non-profit organization that provides sexual assault awareness for college students across the country. It’s main focus is to provide education, which can reduce the risk of sexual assaults on college campuses.” Taryn’s eight year old “fake news Fair Game story” has nothing to do with rape or sexual assault. Why is Taryn trying to exploit the Leila Grace Foundation?

Scientology leader David Miscavige spent $100 million dollars and took seven years to launch Scientology TV. Miscavige boasted that his pricey television network would serve as the Church of Scientology’s “uncorrupted communication line to the billions.”

Despite having Scientology TV at his command, David Miscavige has kept Mike Rinder’s daughter Taryn Teutsch off the $100 million network.

Why?

If Taryn Teutsch’s story is so important then why isn’t David Miscavige giving it prime time repeat coverage on Scientology TV? Aren’t such stories the reason why the $100 million network exists?

David Miscavige has his reasons for demoting Taryn’s story to wog social media and paying click farms so that Taryn can have thousands of fake followers. Miscavige knows that Taryn’s
stale old fabricated story about her father assaulting her mother is bogus. Per the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office report, the events Taryn claims to have happened never actually happened. The Sheriff’s Office said there was no crime, no victim, and only “incidental contact” was made as Mike Rinder attempted to extricate himself while surrounded by a mob of hysterical, angry, and screaming Scientologists.

You can hear Cathy Bernardini, daughter Taryn Teutsch, and the other angry Scientologists  profanely screaming at Mike Rinder on this audio recorded by John Sweeney who worked as a journalist for the BBC from 2001 to 2014. Mike and John were talking on the phone when the April 2010 ambush went down. Cathy Bernardini repeatedly drops the F bomb:

Mike Rinder retreated from the parking lot into the doctor’s office where his girlfriend (and now his wife) Christie Collbran was. The angry Scientology mob tried to follow him into the doctor’s office and the police had to be called. It can all be heard on the Sweeney recording. This tape puts the lie to Taryn Teutsch and Cathy Bernardini’s account. They were both part of the Scientology lynch mob that ambushed Mike. Taryn never shares this audio when she speaks to women’s groups.

Scientology TV would never dare broadcast this recording. To this point, if David Miscavige wanted Taryn’s malicious fantasy told all he need do is order Scientology TV to produce a series of episodes and then air it 24/7 to the billions of people he claims his network can reach. However, as Taryn’s Fair Game narrative about her father is fake news unsupported by the facts, David Miscavige has to keep Scientology TV unsullied by Taryn. This leaves Taryn to press her attack in the social media.

What is heinous in Taryn’s Teutsch’s conduct — and that of the Church of Scientology — is that Taryn is peddling her fabricated story to groups that are concerned with either helping women who are the survivors of rape and sexual harassment or the prevention of rape and sexual harassment through education. Taryn’s fabricated story has nothing to do with rape or sexual assault. So why is Taryn shamelessly exploiting these groups?

L. Ron Hubbard and Rape Culture

Tony Ortega today published a story today in which Christie’s is auctioning off two letters written by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard in 1948. In one of the letters Hubbard writes of the “treatment” he gave to a group of women:

“I went to work and got me a flock of ambulant lunatics from a matrimonial bureau and began to work on them,” he writes. “Six out of ten unfrigidized and went practically nympho and I had a hound’s time trying to undo the over-compensation and normalize it.”

Hubbard brags that he “unfrigidized” women and turned them into veritable nymphomaniacs even as Taryn Teutsch is speaking at the Leila Grace Foundation, a rape prevention group. But it gets worse as Ortega notes:

We’re reminded of another letter Hubbard wrote at about this time, a 1949 letter to another close friend and Hubbard’s literary agent, Forrest Ackerman. Hubbard told “Forrie” that with dianetics…

“…you can rape women without their knowing it, communicate suicide messages to your enemies as they sleep, sell the Arroyo Seco parkway to the mayor for cash, evolve the best way of protecting or destroying communism, and other handy house hold hints. If you go crazy, remember you were warned.”

Taryn Teutsch attempts to weave a fabricated narrative of spousal abuse against the backdrop of L. Ron Hubbard’s heinous rapine boasting to his literary agent Forrest Ackerman that Dianetics will allow men to, “rape women without their knowing it.” And it gets even worse. As covered by Tony Ortega, L. Ron Hubbard wrote a shocking passage in which he excuses male pedophile behavior and blames the child victim:

There are two axioms about mind function with which the auditor should be familiar…The first axiom is of interest to the auditor in his work because with it he can clearly establish whether or not he is confronting a rational reaction. The seven-year-old girl who shudders because a man kisses her is not computing; she is reacting to an engram since at seven she should see nothing wrong in a kiss, not even a passionate one. There must have been an earlier experience, possibly prenatal, which made men or kissing very bad.

Hubbard wrote that a seven year old girl should not react to being passionately kissed by an adult male. Taryn Teutsch ignores Hubbard’s shocking and inexcusable writings about raping women and men passionately kissing seven year old girls — and she ignores it while peddling her fake story at women’s centers that seek to prevent rape and sexual harassment.

In his notorious Admissions, Hubbard wrote of women:

Your own pleasure is not dependent on the woman’s. You are interested only in your own sexual pleasure. If she gets any that is all right but not vital. Many women are not capable of pleasure in sex and anything adverse they say or do has no effect whatever upon your pleasure. Their bodies thrill you. If they repel you, it merely means they themselves are too frigid or prudish to be bothered with. They are unimportant in bed except as they thrill you. Your sexual power is magnificent and they know it. If they are afraid of it, that is their loss. You are not affected by it.

You have no fear if they conceive. What if they do? You do not care. Pour it into them and let fate decide.

The slipperier they are the more you enjoy it because it means their mucous is running madly with pleasure.

There is nothing wrong in the sex act. Nothing any woman may say can change your opinion. You are a master. You are as sensitive and sexy as Pan. Lord help women when you begin to fondle them. You are master of their bodies, master of their souls as you may consciously wish. You have no karma to pay for these acts. You cannot now accumulate karma for you are a master adept.

Scientologist Taryn Teutsch is attempting to identify herself with rape prevention and sexual harassment prevention groups. She does this even as the founder of Scientology was a demented misogynist whose dehumanization of women and girls as sexual objects is proven by his own words. Hubbard’s Admissions contain his view of women and have long been exposed online. Who do Taryn and OSA think they’re fooling?

In a further attempt to legitimatize her breathtaking hypocrisy and social media fraud, Taryn Teutsch has even posted photos of herself with distinguished women such as Gretchen Carlson and Fox LA’s Christine Devine who did not know their names and images would be used in a Scientology Fair Game smear campaign ultimately aimed at destroying Mike Rinder and Leah Remini for their efforts to expose Scientology.

When informed that her name and image had been misappropriated by an agent of the Church of Scientology, Gretchen Carlson’s response was to ask how to get her picture taken down from Taryn’s Twitter account:

Predictably, the LAPD — an agency that is suspiciously far too friendly with the Church of Scientology — is only too happy to lend its name and command officers to Taryn Teutsch’s smear campaign. The LAPD is always there for Scientology:

Taryn Teutsch Uses a Photo of Gretchen Carlson in Her Fair Game Campaign Against Leah Remini’s Show

        Scientology Fair Game Practitioner Taryn Teutsch

In our series on Taryn Teutsch and her mother Cathy Bernardini, we noted that both are Scientology Sea Org members. Their current assignment from Captain David Miscavige is to conduct a sleazy Fair Game campaign to get Mike Rinder fired from his job with Leah Remini’s Emmy-winning show Scientology and the Aftermath.

While this is being done to punish Mike for his many long and courageous years of speaking out against Scientology’s many abuses, Taryn’s Fair Game campaign is also being waged to harm Leah Remini’s show because it has been so successful in exposing the depravity and sadism perpetrated upon individuals, families, and society by the Church of Scientology.

Scientology’s logic is transparent in this current Fair Game smear campaign: If Taryn can get Mike fired, then the Church of Scientology will jump in and announce that Leah Remini hired an abuser and is therefore a horrible person and her show is false. This is how idiotically simple David Miscavige thinks. However, as we have seen in Taryn’s bogus smear campaign against Mike Rinder, OSA’s execution is incredibly poor. Culture is not stupid and sees right through this dirty Scientology behavior. Scientology is deemed a cult due to the overwhelming preponderance of the evidence.

Scientology Social Media Fraud

In our previous article we exposed the social media fraud in which “Clickfarm Taryn” is engaged as part of her social media fraud. Taryn’s thousands of Twitter and Facebook followers are created in Third World sweatshops.

We also discussed the way in which Taryn Teutsch is cynically attempting to exploit the #MeToo movement by co-opting it for her fake narrative that her father Mike Rinder abused her mother Cathy Bernardini.

As the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office official report established, however, there was no crime, no assault, and no victim. What the report established is that a large group of Scientologists accosted Mike Rinder in a Florida parking lot. See our first article for details of what actually happened and what Taryn Teutsch is not telling the public.

Taryn Teutsch is not satisfied to with merely buying followers to engage in Scientology social media fraud. Indeed, “Clickfarm Taryn” went so far as to get her photo taken with Gretchen Carlson at the prestigious YWCA GLA “Phenomenal Woman Awards Luncheon” event in order to the photo use on her Facebook page. This photo could deceive the unwary into believing that both the YWCA GLA and Phenomenal Woman award winner Gretchen Carlson support Taryn:


Taryn’s photo obviously does not imply Gretchen Carlson’s endorsement of Scientology, Taryn Teutsch, or Cathy Bernardini. And yet Taryn seems to imply that she and Gretchen Carlson are in solidarity.

Scientology engaged in this same sort of misleading PR tactic to raise money in the days following 9/11. In a now infamous image, Scientology colorized its Volunteer Minister and made all of the true first repsonders at Ground Zero fade into shades of gray. In doing so the Church of Scientology was seeking to co-opt 9/11 for its own venal fundraising purposes even as Taryn Teutsch is now seeking to co-opt #MeToo for her Fair Game campaign against her father Mike Rinder. Scientology has always worked to steal potent cultural content and pervert such content to its own uses.

Scientologist Tom Cruise also appropriated 9/11 imagery in an effort to abet Scientology’s efforts to make itself look like it was there at Ground Zero:

Tom Cruise in an NYFD uniform surrounded by stage fog. Tom Cruise was seeking to imply that NYFD endorsed Scientology. The actual Scientology efforts following 9/11 were limited to running a Purification Rundown and a gigantic fundraising effort within the Cult. David Miscavige called this fundraising effort a “Wake Up Call” and thus cynically used 9/11 to further enrich himself and Scientology.

Tom Cruise further injected himself into 9/11 by opening a Purification Rundown center for first responders. Cruise did the PR photo and opened a Purif center in order to associate himself with the heroic NYFD. By attending the YWCA GLA event and getting her photo taken with Jackie Lacey and Gretchen Carlson, Taryn Teutsch is engaging in the same sort of implied endorsement where no endorsement actually exists.

Cathy Bernardini

Taryn’s mother Cathy Bernardini is no stranger to controversy. Bernardini can be seen in this 2010 interview with Anderson Cooper beginning at 3:33. Anderson Cooper is masterful in his questioning and takedown of these duplicitous Sea Org members:

CNN’s exposure of Scientology bears out the old French proverb, “The more things change, the more they remain the same.” Scientology lied then and it is lying now. Moreover, Scientology’s 2010 prediction that Anderson Cooper and CNN were both doomed to fail miserably for having “attacked” Scientology has not come to pass. Both CNN and Mr. Cooper continue to enjoy good ratings.

Why Aren’t Taryn & Cathy Demanding that David Miscavige be Fired?

Cathy Bernardini is known for having appeared on CNN’s show “A History of Violence” in which she told Anderson Cooper that Scientology leader David Miscavige never physically assaulted her ex-husband Mike Rinder. This too is a lie. Mike Rinder has stated many times he was physically assaulted by David Miscavige — and Miscavige has never dared to respond by suing Mike for libel and slander. Miscavige knows he would lose in court in the same way he lost when Debbie Cook spent one day on the stand describing the abuses she suffered in the Sea Org at the hands of David Miscavige. Following Debbie Cook’s testimony, Miscavige folded up like a cheap lawn chair in a hurricane and settled with Debbie.

There are multiple eyewitnesses who saw David Miscavige physically assault Mike Rinder. There are also numerous former Sea Org members on record who themselves were physically attacked, beaten, hit, or punched by David Miscavige.

By Cathy Bernardini and Taryn Teutsch’s own standard, David Miscavige should be fired from Scientology as he is an abuser. Taryn and Cathy insist that abusers never be rewarded. Therefore, both should logically demand that David Miscavige be fired.

The Supreme Abuser in Scientology — David Miscavige — is behind this entire Fair Game attack If anyone needs to be fired it is David Miscavige.

This is really the story of David Miscavige using a mother and a daughter to enact L. Ron Hubbard’s toxic policy of Fair Game. Another story that needs to be told is the horrible ways in which David Miscavige treats women. Indeed, he has locked away his own wife Shelly Miscavige for over a decade. Why isn’t Taryn Teutsch asking the real question, “Where’s Shelly?”

Taryn Teutsch and Scientology have now been caught out in the open trying to use Gretchen Carlson and the #MeToo movement for purposes of Scientology Fair Game.

Karen Pressley

In the Facebook group SWOT: Scientology Whistleblowers, Observers & Troublemakers, former Sea Org member Karen Pressley on the matter of Cathy Bernardini:

Cathy Bernardini (Rinder) is a well-groomed liar who, as so well expressed by Jeffrey Augustine in his recent reports, has raised her daughter Taryn to follow in her tracks. Her capacity to lie straight to Anderson Cooper in a CNN interview in 2010 impacted me so much that I had to write about her and Jenny Linson (DeVocht) in my book, Escaping Scientology: An Insider’s True Story. In brief, for those who have not seen that interview: Cathy, Jenny, Katherine Hawkins and Anne Rathbun represented themselves as former wives of SP execs who had left the Sea Org from the Int base. They defended David Miscavige regarding Cooper’s statements that Miscavige was known to beat and victimize his staff. Cathy Rinder lied through her teeth that MIscavige had never laid a finger on Mike, never hit or beat him etc. She said she would have seen bruises or injuries on his body if that had been true. She failed to mention that Mike lived in LA while working for OSA and she lived at the Int base. So it’s not like she saw him very often and wouldn’t have been able to see any physical damage Miscavige would have inflicted on him. I’m sure she was incapable of detecting the psychological and emotional damage, because she suffered it herself so she would not have been able to see it. So in this abusive, compromised environment, Taryn finds it natural to follow in her mother’s footsteps, which is extremely sad to see. She is highly unlikely to ever break out of the trap as long as her mother remains in. Meanwhile, we can fully expect Taryn to keep doing OSA dirty work.

As Karen and I so strongly object to the Fair Game campaign in which  Scientology and Taryn Teutsch are engaged, I have spent the week doing an almost real time narrative of this smear campaign at The Scientology Money Project. What I have discovered is that this sleazy attack on Mike Rinder is awash in a fake narrative and social media fraud in which Taryn Teutsch is using fake Facebook and Twitter followers. Here are the four articles I wrote should you wish to read the details on how vicious and inept this attack on Mike Rinder has become:

Scientology’s Fair Game Campaign Against Mike Rinder Collapsing Under the Weight of Scrutiny

Scientology’s Fair Game Campaign Against Mike Rinder Collapsing Under the Weight of Scrutiny

The Church of Scientology’s mother-daughter duo of Cathy Bernardini and Taryn Teutsch have been engaged in a classic Scientology Fair Game campaign of lies. The purpose of their duplicitous campaign is to demand that Disney fire Mike Rinder from Leah Remini’s Emmy-winning A&E show Scientology and the Aftermath.

Taryn and Cathy claim that Mike assaulted Cathy in 2010. This is an utter and complete lie. As documented in our previous article, Cathy and Taryn were part of a Scientology mob that ambushed Mike Rinder in a Florida parking lot in 2010. The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office report noted that there was only “incidental contact” as Mike was trying to move away from the angry group of Scientologists. There was no assault. Cathy Bernardini received an abrasion on her arm due to incidental contact. The Sheriff’s Office report closed the case as a simple non-criminal incident.

Cathy and Taryn are Sea Org members. Along with Scientology’s dirty operators in OSA, they have knowingly created and perpetuated a false narrative about an event that happened eight years ago. In doing so they are cynically hoping to take advantage of the #MeToo movement by arguing that all abusers should be fired, and, as Mike is an abuser he too should be fired. However, inasmuch as Cathy, Taryn, and OSA are lying, the Church of Scientology has now been caught in a cynical, self-serving, and transparent attempt to exploit the victims of rape, sexual harassment, and abuse for its own malevolent purposes of Fair Game. This disgraceful conduct is yet another reason why Scientology has only itself to blame for being called a sinister cult.

Clickfarm Taryn’s Fake Friends: More Scientology Social Media Fraud

In addition to lying about what happened in 2010, Taryn Teutsch also used two fake “stock photo Scientologists” on her Facebook page to support her efforts to get Mike Rinder fired. (See our previous article on fake Scientologists). These fake Scientologist go to the pattern of Taryn’s deceit — as do her fake Twitter followers. Aaron Smith-Levin noted the following on Facebook a few hours ago:

Taryn’s Twitter page bears out what Aaron posted. Here we see that Taryn has gained 600 Twitter followers in the few hours since Aaron posted the 14,000 number. Scientology’s hired clickfarms are indeed busy:


Taryn claims to have 5,577 followers on her Facebook Page:

Triumph, a poster on ESMB, posted the names of just a few of Clickfarm Taryn’s 5,738 Facebook followers:

Clickfarm Taryn has Facebook followers from the Philippines, Indonesia, Tijuana, and India. Taryn and OSA are not even trying to make this part of their social media fraud appear credible. Below we see one of Taryn’s fake Facebook followers named Suresh Sureshdhillion. To see what “she” shares with friends send Suresh a friend request:

Clickfarm Taryn’s social media fraud reveals just how shamelessly she and Scientology will lie.
Scientology has been caught before in social media fraud.

Taryn lies about matters of substance and then lazily uses click farm friends to pretend she has support for her lies. No one is fooled by the scammy Scientology smear campaign being perpetrated by Clickfarm Taryn, her mother Cathy, and Scientology’s Office of Special Affairs.

Bottom line on Taryn Teutsch: She has a fake story that features fake stock photo Scientologists, fake Facebook followers, and fake Twitter followers. In other words, it is classic Scientology.

Scientology TV: David Miscavige’s $4 Million Dollar per hour Vanity Project

______________________________________________________________________________________

We open our article with a graphic from Scientology TV:

STV.1

This graphic is taken from Scientology’s official website and informs us that Scientology TV launched with only 25 hours of original content (1500 minutes). This is hardly a number to brag about — particularly after Scientology leader David Miscavige spent about $100 million to purchase, equip, and launch Scientology Media Productions and Scientology TV.

David Miscavige purchased the old KCET studio in 2011, so we also must factor in the seven years of time he took to actually get his 25 hours of original Scientology TV content on air. Looked at from a business perspective, this is a terrible and inefficient use of time and money. Like the Ideal Orgs or the Super Power Building, Scientology TV is yet another money-grabbing and financially wasteful Miscavige vanity project which absolutely fails to address the real issues that are destroying the Church of Scientology from within and without.

The $100 million dollar number translates to $4 million dollars per hour for 25 hours of new content. This is an alarming cash burn figure for 25 hours of Scientology content that few people will ever watch or even notice. In terms of contrast, HBO’s Game of Thrones spent $15 million per hour for its final episodes, this according to a 2017 story in Variety penned by and The difference between Scientology TV and Game of Thrones is the return on investment. According to Forbes, 16.1 million people watched the first episode of Game of Thrones final season. Game of Thrones was crucial to HBO’s “$1.6 billion in revenue and $583 million in operating income during the first quarter of 2017” per the Forbes article.

While it is not realistic to expect something as mediocre as Scientology TV to compete with HBO’s smash hit Game of Thrones, it is realistic to expect David Miscavige to be a better financial steward of the donations made by Scientology’s parishioners. Miscavige’s profligate spend of $4 million per hour on content is excessive when we consider that Scientology TV is fundamentally propaganda that seeks to deflect attention away from the real issues of Scientology’s rapacious greed; its wanton exploitation of Sea Org members; the Cult’s use of child labor; and Scientology’s psycho-terrorist practices of Disconnection and Fair Game.

In their piece, Ryan and Littleton sum up the costs of contemporary television production:

At a moment when the television industry is grappling with a massive increase in the number of shows being produced, the ripple effects of Peak TV are surfacing in virtually every line item in a typical TV series budget.

Fueled by the rise of streaming heavyweights that don’t play by the same financial rules as traditional TV players, costs are soaring for everything from location scouting to renting equipment to securing post-production facilities…The estimates on the cost of content that emerged from these interviews peg the typical range of the production budget for high-end cable and streaming dramas at $5 million-$7 million an hour, while single-camera half hours on broadcast and cable run from $1.5 million to more than $3 million.

David Miscavige is spending big money like a Hollywood mogul. However, his spending will not result in the multibillion dollar annual earnings that successful Hollywood moguls deliver. Scientology TV will likely result in very little for the Church of Scientology except to mislead its parishioners into thinking that Scientology is growing and has surmounted decades of withering revelations about the corrupt and abusive practices of this “pay as you go” business that masquerades as a church.

Miscavige’s Scientology TV programming deliberately withholds Scientology’s space opera cosmology that is populated by Xenu, volcanoes, and body thetans. Scientology TV will also definitely never show the actual dollar costs of Scientology in which Scientologists must pay $500-$1000 per hour for auditing. At these prices, it is quite easy to spend $500,000 — or more — on your way up Scientology’s Bridge to OTVIII:

Scn.Price.List.6

This next Scientology graphic informs us that a Scientology Media Productions unit called “Central Ingest” receives 720 hours of raw footage everyday from Scientology shoot crews. This raw footage becomes Scientology TV:

STV.3

720 hours per day x 365 days in a year = 262,800 hours of raw footage that Central Ingest has to edit into original content to fill the 8,760 broadcast hours per year on Scientology TV’s 24/7/365 schedule. At $4 million an hour to create new content, Miscavige will be increasingly forced to cycle through the same content over and over simply to conserve cash.

Look at the bottom line: With a $4 million dollar per hour burn rate to create new Scientology TV content, 250 hours of content would cost one billion dollars. Scientology TV has the very real potential to bankrupt Scientology. Predictively, therefore, Miscavige will be forced to scale back his Scientology TV operation within a few months and reduce production costs to $50,000 per hour or less. I say this because, in its present form, Scientology TV is financially unsustainable.

Miscavige made his big initial investment in the Scientology Media Productions studio. However, this does not necessarily his mean his costs-per-hour of production time will go down. Television is an expensive business and Miscavige has had to bring in outside talent as the Sea Org simply cannot do professional television production on its own. Without professional outside help, the 262,800 hours of raw footage each year will quickly become a nightmarish backlog that has to be reviewed, scripted into a narrative, edited, and viewed for approval and release. Miscavige’s micromanaging style will also become a major bottleneck if he cannot delegate sufficient authority to release hundreds or thousands of hours of original content each year.

Scientology TV is all cost and no profit. Conversely, Scientology auditing is almost pure profit given Sea Org labor costs and the fact that all of Scientology Orgs are paid for. There are very little overhead costs for Scientology to deliver auditing. And of course IAS donations are pure profit as nothing is offered in return except cheap trophies.

Scientology TV’s initial performance has thus far targeted the safe low-hanging fruit, i.e. successful and non-controversial Scientologists: The banjo-making Deering’s; a skateboarder; a couple that makes custom lighting fixtures and chandeliers; and other innocuous people. Oddly, no Scientology celebrities have been featured. Conspicuously absent are Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Laura Prepon, etc. Even the Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss has been absent; this perhaps due to her less than charming behavior at the 2017 Emmy awards:

Elisabeth_Moss_Emmys

Once Scientology has picked the low hanging fruit then what? Will it show the gritty reality of bankrupt Scientologists such as Richie Acunto whose $10 million dollar IAS Scientology trophy ignominiously wound up for sale on eBay?

Will Scientology TV do an episode on how everyday Scientologists write Knowledge Reports on each other in the snitching culture of Scientology? Will Scientology TV show how female Sea Org members are not provided with feminine hygiene products and must pay for tampons and such from their earnings of .50 cents per hour or less? When will Scientology TV tell the real truth about what Scientology actually is and does?

Scientology TV very predictably went on the attack against Psychiatry and Psychiatric drugs. Anyone could see this was coming; likewise we also knew that the phony PR stories and fake heroics of Scientology’s Volunteer Ministers would be a part of the broadcast equation. Very predictably too were the stories of how The Way to Happiness saved Colombia.

Yet when will Scientology TV showcase Scientology’s notorious Office of Special Affairs where all of Scientology’s psycho-terrorist Fair Game operations are planned and managed? When do we get to see actual Scientology salespeople pressure Scientologists into going another $40,000 into debt to raise their IAS Patron status? When do we get to see a Scientologist solo auditing their body thetans for an hour or more everyday behind a locked door in their home?

The answer is that we will never see the cruel and miserable realities of everyday Scientology.

All that we will we will ever see on Scientology TV is Scientology PR; its attacks on Psychiatry; fake news from its phony front groups; and Nation of Islam members who have become practicing Scientologists. Scientology TV is nothing more than Cult TV.

In the final analysis, Scientology TV is David Miscavige’s $4 million dollar per hour vanity project meant to burnish his legacy within the insular confines of Scientology. The Scientology dictator made sure everyone knew Scientology TV was his baby when he shamelessly featured himself as the centerfold in a four-page wide photo-spread in the recent edition of International Scientology News:

The photo was taken at the LRH Birthday Event at which Miscavige announced Scientology TV. Miscavige can be seen behind his podium onstage at the center of the photo. He is surrounded by his adoring and euphoric throngs who can’t believe that Scientology finally has a TV channel a scant 71 years after DuMont, ABC, NBC, and CBS began broadcasting in the period 1947-1948.

America’s first big religious broadcaster was Bishop Fulton J. Sheen who began airing his show in 1951; this was the same year L. Ron Hubbard fled New Jersey for Wichita, Kansas after his first Dianetics Foundation went bankrupt and he was facing criminal charges in New Jersey for teaching medicine without a license. That Scientology is 70 years late in adopting television broadcasting is nothing new. Scientology spent tens of millions of dollars to build and open a 276,000-square-foot book-publishing factory in 2009 when paper books were racing into digital form on Kindle, tablets, and pads. Scientology’s Bridge Publications is still selling books and DVD’s in 2018. The Dianetics Kit sells for $75.00 and yet it points to a serious problem:

Scientology TV cannot broadcast anything contained in the Dianetics Kit or in any other products sold by Bridge Publications. To do so would cut into the revenues of Bridge. The hope of Scientology TV, therefore, is to get people to buy Scientology goods and services. And yet at $75.00 per Dianetics kit, Bridge Publications would have to sell 53,333 kits to offset the $4 million dollar cost of one hour of new content production by Scientology TV. This will never happen. Thus, one can begin to see the intractable problems created by David Miscavige’s extravagant and wasteful spending on Scientology TV. The man is truly fiddling while Rome burns.

Despite these glaring problems, the fawning prose describing the event when Scientology TV was announced to the faithful was downright embarrassing and helps to explain why Scientology is a Cult:

DM.STV.Praise.1 001

The schedule for Scientology TV this weekend from Friday, April 6, 2018 at 6:00 PM through Sunday, April 8, 2018 shows the highly repetitive programming that will quickly become the major pitfall of Scientology TV — this unless David Miscavige commits to huge burn rates of cash in the millions of dollars per hour to churn out new content. Seen from this perspective, the Ideal Orgs were a much better grade of failure for David Miscavige as they at least left Scientology owning real estate. In the case of Scientology TV there is no tangible return on the investment. Of course, Scientology claims that its TV channel will “boom” Scientology. However, the Cult says this same thing about all of its scammy cash-grabs: GAT I, GAT II, the Basics, Ideal Orgs, the Super Power Building, etc.

Below: This weekend’s Scientology TV schedule is shown on a PDF. The schedule repeats episodes on Scientologists Binod Sharma; James Speiser; a mother who became a media consultant; and The Way to Happiness. Sunday night features an L. Ron Hubbard marathon in which the Founder can be heard droning on at length in his various lectures. Does it get any more exciting than this?

Mike Rinder, Church of Scientology’s Former Spokesman On Fair Game & Season 3 of Aftermath

Scientology’s Fair Game puts the lie to Scientology TV. It does so by drawing the attention of the public to the fact that it is business as usual inside of Scientology. Mike describes how David Miscavige orders his OSA minions to do something about Leah’s show and how this results in actions that are irrational and actually harm Scientology by exposing its sleazy Fair Game tactics.

Mike then recounts the series of events that led him to escape from the Church of Scientology. This leads into a conversation in which Mike describes the internal justice system of Scientology and why the Church covers up sexual molestation and the other crimes and misdeeds committed by Scientologists.

Mike ends by talking about the Aftermath Foundation and how it exists to help Scientologists get started again in life after fleeing Scientology with literally nothing.
