Scientology Television on YouTube: Statistics & Predictions

The Church of Scientology has launched its cable channel. It has done so by purchasing time on a 24/7/365 basis on channel 320 on Direct TV. However, for all intents and purposes Scientology Television appears to be depending upon being live-streamed on YouTube.

Thus, we can use existing YouTube statistics to predict Scientology Television’s potential for success on YouTube.

Our only caveat is that Scientology’s published numbers are notoriously unreliable and often completely false. For example, Scientology has variously claimed it has eight million members, twelve million members, or simply millions of members.

Absent any independent third party audit, we must take Scientology’s numbers to be both inflated and unverifiable. Moreover, Scientology’s STAND League on Twitter was caught using stock photos and claiming these were actual Scientologists. These fake “stock photo Scientologists” were exposed as such. Scientology has also been suspected of using click farms to boost ratings. With these factors in mind, we proceed with our analysis of Scientology’s performance on YouTube.

We begin with Scientology’s main YouTube channel. We learn there that this channel began on September 19, 2006 and claims 30,521,562 views as of March 14, 2018:

We note that Scientology refuses to disclose the number of subscribers to its channel. Drilling down, we use the YouTube feature that allows us to sort videos from the most popular to the least popular. Here are the ten most popular videos by rank on Scientology’s YouTube channel:

This data shows us that Scientology’s top ten videos have a total of 11,182,000 views. This is 36.6% of the total views claimed for the channel. Of note is Scientology’s 2018 Super Bowl ad with a claimed 2.9 million views. This means that one 2018 Super Bowl commercial accounts for 10% of all views since the channel opened in 2006.

What this tells us is that Scientology spent millions of dollars on a one-time Super Bowl ad in early 2018 to gain 10% of its total YouTube traffic since 2006. This does not bode well for Scientology Television as the channel is not tied to advertising on high profile televised network events such as the Super Bowl, the World Cup, the Academy Awards, or major television franchises like Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, or The Big Bang Theory.

Once we deduct the numbers for Scientology’s top ten YouTube videos, we are left with 19,339,562 views since the channel began 135 months ago in September 2006. Less the top ten videos, then, Scientology YouTube has averaged a paltry 143,256 views per month since its inception.

Scientology’s ten lowest ranking YouTube videos produced a pathetic 143,000 views; four of these videos were “The Way to Happiness” themed:

By way of contrast, the top 20 Scientology channels and videos on YouTube that are not favorable to Scientology have a total 72,850,000 views:

The conclusion here is that a highly active group of former Scientologists, critics, and media outlets can easily outpace the three billion dollar Scientology Cult on social media without multi-million dollar Super Bowl ads; 24/7/365 live streaming on YouTube; or spending $4 million dollars per year on carriage fees on Direct TV as Lloyd Grove stated in his recent Daily Beast article David Miscavige Comes Out of the Shadows on the First Night of Scientology’s TV Network. Further, we are restricting our analysis in this article to YouTube; we do not take into account books, movies, and televisions shows. Hence, Going Clear, the book and the film, Leah Remini’s Scientology and the Aftermath, CNN’s A History of Violence, the Tampa Bay Times’ The Truth Rundown, Tony Ortega’s Underground Bunker and the other leading exposes of Scientology are not factored into our discussion at hand.

In terms of strategy and content, the playlists on Scientology’s YouTube channel suggest that  we can expect to see more of the same content from Scientology Television:

Based on the foregoing, my prediction is that this will be the exact content we can expect to see repeated endlessly on Scientology Television:

  1. Ideal Org grand openings
  2. Volunteer Ministers
  3. Meet a Scientologist videos
  4. A focus on Latin America
  5. Scientologists making a difference in their communities videos
  6. CCHR anti-drug and anti-psychiatry videos
  7. Pseudo-ecumenical efforts using the usual Scientology shills, e.g. Dr. J. Gordon Melton
  8. Speeches at Ideal Org grand openings by low-ranking functionaries, for example Captain John Galindo, Operations Director National Circle of Aid Technicians of Colombia

What stood out to me in my review of Scientology’s YouTube website for this article is that Scientologist skateboarder Aaron has the largest number of views for an individual Scientologist. With 809,524 views, this  young man’s ratings far and away eclipse the ratings for any video featuring Scientology leader David Miscavige. VWD Aaron!

The least popular Scientologist in the “Meet a Scientologist” series of videos appears to be Omar, an expeditionary pilot. Poor Omar has only 1,010 views since his video was released on October 28, 2010:

Bottom Line: My prediction is that Scientology Television will follow the same trajectory as an Ideal Org – which is to say that it will have a shelf life of three weeks and then it will die on the vine.

With an Ideal Org there is excitement the week before the grand opening and David Miscavige’s rope pull. Then there is excitement the two weeks after the grand opening. Thereafter, it is business as usual with the demands for stats, more money, and to get bodies into the shop. Apathy sets in and soon the glory of the grand opening gives way to the punishing and cruel grind of everyday life in Scientology.

The initial burst of interest in Scientology Television will quickly collapse once people see that it is a 24/7/365 cycling of the same content ad nauseum. L. Ron Hubbard’s pedantic lectures and Scientology hyperbole wears thin very quickly; particularly when Netflix beckons.

Certifiable Wingnut David Miscavige Claims Infinity Has a Front Porch & That He Travels Faster than Light

Lost in a space opera world of Marcabs, Fifth Force invaders, implant stations on Mars, and 75,000,000 year old body thetans, Scientology’s brutal dictator David Miscavige routinely wears a fake Navy uniform with fake medals. He pretends to be the Captain of a legally non-existent “Sea Org.” Miscavige also dresses his dog in a navy uniform and orders his underlings to salute the dog.

Unhinged lunatic and certifiable wingnut David Miscavige claimed in a bizzare speech that Infinity has a front porch. In this same speech, Miscavige claimed that 2015 surpassed any year since the “first tick of time.” In saying this, Miscavige essentially claimed to have existed since the very beginning of time, for only one who has existed since the beginning of time could compare 2015 to the first tick of time:

David Miscavige did not disclose the whereabouts of his “front porch of infinity” nor did he explain the physics whereby time is compressed. Nevertheless, he assured Scientologists that they had arrived at the front porch of infinity due to working at “warp speed” i.e. faster than the speed of light.

David Miscavige’s mental state is such that he actually believes he travels at superluminal speeds and can compress time.

While it is impossible to travel faster than C — the speed of light — Miscavige asserted his delusional claim that he and all other Scientologists can work at speeds faster than the speed of light and that this somehow compresses time.

While he is obviously lost in a world of mental illness in which Scientologists can work and travel at faster than light speeds, “Captain Miscavige” is also reported to be “abnormally normal” and is said to have a fondness for taco trucks; this according to his fake navy subordinate Mollie Hoertling of Bridge Publications:

Left unexplained by Ms. Hoertling is how she and David Miscavige can eat tacos, grilled cheese sandwiches, or cheeseburgers while working at faster than light speeds. Also left unexplained is where David Miscavige’s missing wife Shelly is located or her state of health. At the recent event in Birmingham, England David Miscavige was not wearing a wedding ring.

David Miscavige is deranged and this is why he makes fantastical claims such as superluminal travel and infinity having a front porch. Miscavige also engaged in an orgy of self-love and self-praise in this bizarre speech:

And of course at the height “Captain” David Miscavige’s megalomaniac lunacy we saw Tom Cruise groveling before Miscavige. Tom Cruise embarrassed himself here and David Miscavige enjoyed it immensely:

Kirstie Alley, Scientology, and the Las Vegas Shootings


As the world mourns the death of the 58 people killed and the 515 people wounded in the Las Vegas shooting, the real questions being asked are about gun control, private ownership of assault weapons, the screening of luggage at hotels, and other serious questions.

In a series of bizarre tweets, however, Scientologist Kirstie Alley, however, jumped on the mass shootings and used them to attack Psychiatry and psychiatric drugs. Without a shred of evidence whatsoever, Kirstie Alley blamed the actions of shooter Stephen Paddock on psychiatric medications. Alley did this before the Coroner had done any blood tests on Paddock’s body. As of this writing, there is no evidence of what, if any, drugs Paddock had in his body. One would think Alley would have shown restraint in her comments. However, Kirstie Alley assumed that psychiatric drugs were involved and then asserted that all mass shootings are caused by psychiatric medications.

What Kirstie Alley utterly fails to see — and this because she is a Scientology cultist indoctrinated by Scientology — is that millions of people in England, Australia, and many other countries take psychiatric medications and there are no mass shootings in these countries because there are not millions of assault weapons in the hands of private citizens.

A mass shooting requires assault weapons and a large cache of ammunition. Kirstie Alley cannot see the causal relationship between assault weapons and mass shootings. Rather, because Alley is a Scientology cult member she must reflexively attribute all evils to Psychiatry and psychiatric drugs. This is what Scientology tells her to do. Tom Cruise did the same thing in 2005 during his bizarre outburst during his interview with Matt Lauer:

Psychs.HitlerThe Church of Scientology falsely attributes the Holocaust to Psychiatry and psychiatric drugs.

Left: The standard propaganda text used by Scientology to prove that Psychiatrists were behind Hitler. This absurd text is akin to the spurious Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

When the Church of Scientology is exposed as a violent, greedy, and antisocial group Scientologists outrageously claim to be just like Jews being persecuted in the Holocaust. Scientologist Bodhi Elfman plays the Holocaust victim even as he and his wife Jenna are wealthy and live a life of luxury. Such are the hypocrisy and lies of Bodhi Elfman.

As for assault weapons and silencers, the two private investigators hired by Scientology dictator David Miscavige to follow his own father for two years, had an assault weapon and a silencer, numerous other weapons, thousands of rounds of ammo, and fake police badges when they were arrested by police. Kirstie Alley remained silent on the assault rifle and silencer, and the $10,000 per week in Church monies David Miscavige spent to have two PI’s follow his own father for two years. Kirstie Alley needs to clean up her own Church before preaching to anyone about anything.


Kirstie Alley’s fellow OTVIII Rex Fowler shot and killed his business partner in cold blood and was sentenced to life in prison. Kirstie remained silent about Rex Fowler.

Likewise, Kirstie Alley has remained silent about Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard’s call for a genocide against 2.5% of the world’s population Hubbard deemed to be Suppressive Persons.

The Church of Scientology embodies a call for a genocide even as it condemns Psychiatry and psychiatric drugs for mass shootings and the Holocaust.

The Church of Scientology is dangerous, schizophrenic, and contradictory. For these reasons, the IRS needs to revoke the tax exemption of this very deranged Cult. Please sign and share the petition demanding that the IRS open an investigation into Scientology’s tax exemption.

Actress Elisabeth Moss Joins Scientology’s Elite “Fuck You” Club

After winning an Emmy for her performance in Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale, actress Elisabeth Moss joined Scientology’s exclusive celebrity Fuck You Club — this as seen in the photo above. Very classy Elisabeth. Great PR for the Church of Scientology. We also understood your gesture as a fuck you to those who don’t like the Church of Scientology. Congratulation on winning an Emmy. However, your Emmy doesn’t change any of the facts about the depravity of the Church of Scientology.

The Scientology Fuck You Club was founded by Tom Cruise. Tom teed off during a Rolling Stone interview in 2004. Rolling Stone’s Neil Strauss wrote in his piece The Passion of the Cruise:

Since Scientology, in the popular imagination, is such a loaded word — often associated with heavy-handed recruitment tactics, strong-arm-lawyer assaults and steep membership and course fees — one would think that Cruise wouldn’t be so willing to take a journalist through that world.

“Who are those people that say those things?” Cruise asks when I bring it up over lunch one day. “Because I promise you, it isn’t everybody. But I look at those people and I say, ‘Bring it. I’m a Scientologist, man. What do you want to know?” I don’t mind answering questions.”

He lists some of Scientology’s selling points: its drug-abuse, prison-rehabilitation and education programs. “Some people, well, if they don’t like Scientology, well, then, fuck you.” He rises from the table. “Really.” He points an angry finger at the imaginary enemy. “Fuck you.” His face reddens. “Period.”

Scientology Goodwill Ambassador and OTVIII Kirstie Alley has been a long-standing member of the Scientology Fuck You Club. Kirstie is a master of the “OT Salute” as I like to call it:

Another member of the Scientology Fuck You Club is actor Danny “DJ Donkey Punch” Masterson, a man presently under investigation by the LAPD on allegations of rape. In an interview with Papermag, Masterson unloaded with F bombs like a Scientology B-52 over Wogville. Examples of Masterson’s Scientological eloquence:

Q: So then what would you say is your personal relationship to L. Ron Hubbard?

A: He’s a fucking guy who wrote awesome shit that I love studying… it’s just the study of the mind and cutting it into two parts: the analytical mind and the reactive mind. One is the one that we use and think with, and the other is the one that uses us, and we do things and like, “Why the fuck am I doing that?” or “Why the fuck am I thinking this thing?”

Q: What are the things that you wish you could clear up — the most annoying things that people approach you about?

A: …If people start like asking questions in a way where I feel like they have an ulterior motive, I’m just like, “Dude, just go buy a fucking book and read it and decide for your fucking self what it means. I don’t have time to have this conversation with you.”

Q: Another thing you hear is that Scientology and psychiatry are pitted against each other…

A: Yes. You will not find a Scientologist who does not fucking hate psychiatrists.

Q: Do you foresee a time when conversations like this will be moot and Scientology will be folded into the larger religions of the world as something that just is?

A: I think next week, it begins. [laughs] I mean, to me it already is. I haven’t had a conversation like this about my philosophy — I don’t think ever. But I love doing it and have no problem doing it. I work, I have a family and I’m a spiritual being who likes to understand why things happen in the world and want to learn more so that I can have them not affect me adversely. So if that’s weird, then, well, you can go fuck yourself.

Scientologist Juliette Lewis is a member of Scientology’s “Fuck You” club:

Scientology OT’s Grant and Elena Cardone say “fuck you” to everyone as they smile their 1.1 smiles:

And of course who can forget the bravura performance at LAX by three top Scientology executives when they “confronted” Marty Rathbun? Here are Jenny Linson, Dave Bloomberg, and Mark Yager. Jenny Linson is a trash-talking RTC emissary of David Miscavige:

In its response to the Hollywood Reporter concerning the two private investigators who followed Ron Miscavige Sr., the Church of Scientology called the allegations proveable bullshit. This is not a “fuck you” per se, but it might as well be given its tenor. The “Mr. Miscavige” referred to below is Church leader David Miscavige:

As for the purported emergency incident involving an investigator and the second-hand account of an alleged conversation containing a despicably false quote, Mr. Miscavige’s attorney, Michael Lee Hertzberg, is on record stating that Mr. Miscavige does not know the investigator, has never heard of the investigator, has never met the investigator, has never spoken to the investigator, never hired the investigator and never directed any investigations by him.

So let me be clear: No such conversation with Mr. Miscavige ever took place and any claim that one did is provable bullshit.

Former Scientology spokesman Tommy Davis unloaded the F bomb when he was asked about then-defector Marty Rathbun by the Tampa Bay Times. Fast forward to 4:00 to hear Tommy start to become unhinged and call Marty a “fucking lunatic.”

Over against Scientology’s trademark vulgarity, the Cult is also presently pretending to be persecuted just like Jews in the Holocaust. This is Scientology schizophrenia:

* When Scientology is winning it belligerently sends out “fuck you’s” to people who criticize it.

* When Scientology is being exposed for being a vicious soul-killing predatory cult that breaks up families, uses child labor, and engages in psycho-terrorism against its opponents, it is suddenly the victim of religious persecution. This is when Scientologists suddenly become just like Jews in the Holocaust. This shameless Scientology exploitation of the Holocaust is obscene and must stop.

No Scientologist is better at shamelessly exploiting the Holocaust than Scientologist Bodhi Elfman, a man whose fake piety is belied by the often vulgar podcasts he makes with his wife Jenna Elfman. These unfunny and sometimes pathetic videos give us the WHY for Jenna not having a successful sitcom since Dharma and Greg ended in 2002. Jenna is simply not funny anymore and has become merely strange. Likewise, to see Bodhi groveling for sex is an embarrassment.

Note: This video may be preceded by a Scientology paid ad featuring the disingenuous backstabbing Marty Rathbun, a man Scientology itself calls a “violent psychotic.” Scientology has hate websites posted  on Marty and yet tries to use him as a credible source to impeach Leah Remini’s show and her guest. More Scientology hypocrisy and talking out of both sides of its mouth. See my previous article: Is Marty Rathbun a Psychopath? Which Story is Scientology Sticking With?

Leah Remini on ABC 20/20

TroublemakerLeah Remini’s new book Troublemaker: Surviving Hollywood and Scientology  is  available here.

“The outspoken actress, talk show host, and reality television star offers up a no-holds-barred memoir, including an eye-opening insider account of her tumultuous and heart-wrenching thirty-year-plus association with the Church of Scientology.”

“Leah Remini has never been the type to hold her tongue. That willingness to speak her mind, stand her ground, and rattle the occasional cage has enabled this tough-talking girl from Brooklyn to forge an enduring and successful career in Hollywood. But being a troublemaker has come at a cost.”

“That was never more evident than in 2013, when Remini loudly and publicly broke with the Church of Scientology. Now, in this frank, funny, poignant memoir, the former King of Queens star opens up about that experience for the first time, revealing the in-depth details of her painful split with the church and its controversial practices.”

The Silence of Tom Cruise


Tom Cruise steadfastly chooses to remain silent about the brutality, lies, and human rights abuses of his beloved Church of Scientology. And with his Mission Impossible franchise having raked in more than two billion dollars to date and still producing cash, you can’t blame him. OT VII Tom Cruise is better off remaining silent about Scientology, making films, and quietly solo auditing his body thetans every day behind closed doors.

While an epic film stunt, Cruise riding on the outside of an Airbus A400M in Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation doesn’t change the fact that the Church of Scientology is a vicious, dishonest, and deceptive business. In my view, Tom Cruise’s MI5 Airbus stunt is a metaphor for his life as a Scientology celebrity.

The stunt was carefully designed; engineered; tested using a dummy; and it had a large unseen support crew behind it. But most importantly, the stunt was heavily edited so that none of the artifice was seen.

Tom Cruise and his stunt people have said the biggest risk in the stunt was a bird strike. The physics of a bird striking Tom Cruise during the stunt are such that both the bird and the actor would have been killed. In this sense, a bird strike is the moral equivalent of a reporter asking Cruise questions about the deeply disturbing contents of Alex Gibney’s documentary Going Clear  during the PR tour leading up to the launch of the new film. Now we know that Ethan Hunt is vulnerable to both bird strikes and tough questions about Scientology.

However, just as Cruise and his team mitigated the risks of a bird strike during the filming of the stunt, they also mitigated the risks of any unwanted questions by imposing strict censorship on the MI5 PR tour: No reporters were allowed to ask Cruise about Scientology, Going Clear, or his romantic life. Hence, Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation is a triumph of concealing artifice; acting out a completely make-believe story of heroism and saving the planet; and this while enforcing censorship in real life. In other words, MI5 is Scientology practiced perfectly.

There is more to Tom Cruise’s silence about Scientology than protecting the lavish income he earns from making films. Indeed, the policies of L. Ron Hubbard only allow Scientologists four options when it comes to Scientology:

1. Unequivocally praise L. Ron Hubbard, Scientology, and the Tech. The mantra from Scientologists is that the Tech works; the Church’s social betterment programs help millions of people everyday; and that L. Ron Hubbard was a wise and selfless humanitarian. For any Scientologist to say, or even think, anything negative about the Church publicly or privately is a high crime. Only praise is allowed.

2. Attack anyone who criticizes the Church. L. Ron Hubbard called for attacks on anyone who speaks out against Scientology. This is contained in Hubbard’s infamous Attack the Attacker policy:

The DEFENSE of anything is UNTENABLE. The only way to defend anything is to ATTACK, and if you ever forget that, then you will lose every battle you are ever engaged in, whether it is in terms of personal conversation, public debate or court of law...

Never talk about us - only them.  Use their blood, sex, crime to get headlines.  Don't use us.

Scientology attacks may either be overt or covert, blatant or sneaky. In a 2004 Rolling Stone interview, Tom Cruise replied to the prevalent cultural criticism of Scientology by going on the attack:


3. Go Silent: In 2005, Tom Cruise went on the attack against Psychiatry and psychiatric medications. This proved a debacle, after which Cruise went silent on Scientology. His silence is mandated by Hubbard per the reference shown above:

                   Never talk about us... Don't use us.

Hence, Cruise’s silence on Scientology, while conveniently self-serving, is the only choice he has given his options of praise, attack, or silence. In any case, Cruise has failed in the past with attack. By way of comparison, John Travolta uses only praise when speaking of Scientology and remains absolutely silent on the abuses of Scientology.

4. Have the Church of Scientology’s propaganda bureau Office of Special Affairs issue a PR release. When OSA issues a PR release in response to an allegation or an actual event, it never actually addresses the substances of the issue. Rather, OSA  issues “attack the attacker” press releases in which it parrots its reflexive, predictable, and tired old propaganda lines:

  • A tiny handful of bitter defrocked apostates are making baseless attacks on Scientology in order to gain money and/or notoriety
  • Those attacking Scientology are bigots
  • Scientology is growing and expanding faster than ever and is helping its millions of members
  • Millions of people are being helped by Scientology everyday

Hubbard policy strictly forbids Scientologists from ever debating others about Scientology. That is why the Church of Scientology and its members have never, and will never, engage in any public debates. There is just too much risk of a bird strike so to speak.

Only the notorious Office of Special Affairs is permitted to speak on behalf of the Church — and even then OSA’s recent PR statements have become angrier than ever. The recent zinger from Church spokesperson Karin Pouw was noteworthy in that she used the term “provable bullshit” to so charmingly make her point when defending Scientology leader Captain David Miscavige:


Like John Travolta and the tiny handful of aging Scientology celebrities, Tom Cruise has, for many decades, refused to either acknowledge or speak about the documented human rights abuses and lies in the Church of Scientology. This is per Hubbard’s policy, “Never talk about us….”

Examples of Scientology barbarities about which Tom Cruise remains silent include:

  • Disconnection and the breaking up of families
  • The practice of Fair Game and spying conducted by the notorious Office of Special Affairs
  • RPF
  • Forced abortions in the Sea Org
  • The systematic financial rape of Scientology parishioners
  • Sea Org slave labor
  • The Church’s great big lie about the death of L. Ron Hubbard
  • The physical, verbal, and psychological brutality of Church leader David Miscavige
  • The PR damage created to the Church as a result of David Miscavige’s behavior
  • L. Ron Hubbard’s call for genocide against non-Scientologists

Tom Cruise’s silence shows he has zero confront of the evil in his own group.  In my experience this “lack of confront” speaks to  the central flaw indoctrinated into Scientologists: As a group, Scientologists possess an overwhelming sense of personal superiority and hubris which, disturbingly, coexists alongside a stunning and willful blindness to Scientology’s evil, lies, and abuses.

In the mind of Scientologists, L. Ron Hubbard, David Miscavige, and the Church can do no wrong. Any criticism about Scientology or its leaders is reflexively characterized as an “attack” made by Suppressive Persons, bigots, haters, and all the other epithets Scientologists use in an attempt to ignore the documented facts of Scientology’s egregious and barbaric conduct.

The sense of overwhelming personal superiority and hubris possessed by Scientologists results from their belief that they are members of a master race group called Homo Novis.

Tom Cruise believes himself to be Homo Novis, the new Scientology superman who has transcended the inferior race of “homo saps” or “wogs.” Tom Cruise knows this. However, he can never talk about his racial superiority it in public.

The superiority, hubris, and blindness of Scientologists is not accidental. Rather, these characteristics are the product of indoctrination, insularity, and the peculiar willingness of Scientologists to ignore reality while pretending to be masters of reality.

Essentially, Tom Cruise has abdicated all moral responsibility for the abuses perpetrated daily by his Church and is therefore in a condition of no responsibility for his group.

Given his movie star power to censor reporters, Tom Cruise is getting a free pass on Scientology, his master race status, and Hubbard’s call for a genocide against non-Scientologists. All of this is being swept under the carpet. What is being celebrated is Tom Cruise’s stunt ride on Airbus A400M.

While it was a truly great stunt, people everywhere wanted to know more about Tom Cruise’s stunt. Below are some of the things I discovered.

1. This is the part of the Airbus A400M where the stunt took place. There are four structural parts of the aircraft involved in the stunt:


2. Tom Cruise was harnessed by straps leading into the rear door. A second strap went forward to the camera boom arm and entered the aircraft. This strap was used to wench Tom forward after the filming of the takeoff scene. All of the straps were digitally edited out of the scene.


3.  The initial takeoff footage was filmed. Tom Cruise appears to be hanging on to the aircraft by his bare hands.


4. After the very short takeoff scene was filmed, the A400M deflector door was opened and Tom Cruise was pulled into an upright position. This allowed the harnessed Cruise to stand upright on the step behind the deflector door. The deflector doors deflect the slipstream over the aircraft and thereby reduce its impact on the rear doors. This allows paratroopers to exit the doors without being hit by the full force of the slipstream. The deflector doors helped to protect Tom Cruise during a dangerous stunt. The vdeo still below shows Cruise tucked in behind the deflector door:


5. Because the A400M is built with side paratroop doors, the rear doors can be opened in flight. This allowed Cruise an extra safety margin; if anything went wrong in flight he could be pulled inside the plane to, presumably, a waiting medical team. This is an important feature as the actor hung suspended at altitudes up to 5,000 feet. Screen grab from video posted by FameFlynet:

6. What this MI stunt had going in its favor is that the A400M is a purpose-designed multipurpose cargo plane that allows for paratroopers to jump from the side doors. The A400M has a “sweet spot” designed for parachuting and that spot is where Tom Cruise was positioned. With its side doors, side steps, and deflector doors, the Airbus A400M was the ideal aircraft for this stunt.

This most impressive Tom Cruise stunt was designed and conducted by experts; the risk was solely borne by Cruise. This stunt and Mi5 will pay off handsomely for Tom Cruise in terms PR and box office numbers.

Tom Cruise is receiving great acclaim for a stunt that will surely go down in the annals of Hollywood as one of the greatest stunts ever. However, his silence on Scientology is being widely reported.

I will not be seeing MI5 for the simple reason that part of the money Tom Cruise receives will be donated to the killing machine known as the Church of Scientology. I can’t watch any Tom Cruise movie without thinking of the people whom Scientology has killed, driven to suicide, financially destroyed, or whose families have been torn apart by Disconnection. Scientology killed Alexander Jentzsch, my wife’s only child. The Church would not let my wife Karen see her dead son’s body and kiss him goodbye one last time. This is what Tom Cruise is empowering with his money and enabling with his silence. This is why I won’t watch any of his films.

Scientology’s Inner Circle

Publicly available IRS 990-T’s and other publicly available documents have given us the names of twenty-four trusted Church of Scientology functionaries. Please feel free to post additional names to help build an open source database of “Inner Circle Scientology.” My e-mail is

In this blog entry we present David Miscavige’s inner circle, rubber stamps, & missing wife

Monique.Yingling1. Monique Yingling of Zuckert, Scoutt & Rasenberger LLP, Washington D.C. — David Miscavige’s personal attorney. If Scientology is a small business operated as a wannabe Mafia, then Miscavige is the boss and Yingling his consigliere. Yingling’s late husband was Gerald Feffer of Williams & Connolly in D.C. Feffer and Yingling were among the key architects of Scientology’s 1993 tax exemption.

One indicator serious Scientology watchers use to assess the state of affairs in David Miscavige’s head is the presence of Monique Yingling.

Whenever Yingling appears at the scene of a Scientology story you can bet that Miscavige is highly “enturbulated” as Scientologists say. Yingling recently sent a letter to HBO objecting to Alex Gibney’s characterization of how Scientology gained its 1993 tax exemption. We weighed in on Yingling’s letter.

Yingling appeared along with Scientology executives in Anderson Cooper’s CNN series on the culture of violence in Scientology. Yingling and the others denied that David Miscavige beat Church executives. Yingling did, however, acknowledge that beatings occured and were handled internally. In other words, Yingling admits that numerous beating victims were not allowed to have the perpetrators arrested by the police:

3. Laurisse “Lou” Henley-Smith aka Laurisse Stuckenbrock – David Miscavige’s personal assistant and alleged mistress.  According to Mike Rinder, Miscavige dictates while Stuckenbrock types on her blackberry. She does this in order to serve as Miscavige’s “cut out” so that he does not appear to be controlling the Church of Scientology International. This is important because Miscavige and Yingling told the IRS in Scientology’s 1993 application for tax exemption that Miscavige works for the Religious Technology Center and has nothing to do with running the Church. This is of course an outright lie. The Church of Scientology is David Miscavige’s alter ego. Scientology doesn’t sue anyone these days as Miscavige could be deposed and corporate veils could be pierced. In the 2008 photo below, Henley-Smith is seen (front right) standing next to David Miscavige. Behind Laurisse are Tom Cruise, and Katie Homes at a motorsport event:

4. Linda Hamel – CO OSA Int, Scientology Spy Boss, Office of Special Affairs (OSA). Former Guardian’s Office “Ops Chief” for Snow White.

Note: No known photo of Linda Hamel exists. Scientology keeps its top spy boss in hiding. L. Ron Hubbard stayed in hiding from 1966 until his death in 1986. Now it seems Miscavige is also finding it necessary to keep a low profile along with Linda Hamel.

5. Jenny Linson, Dave Bloomberg, and Marc Yager — long-time Scientologists and top Scientology executives. In October 2014, this troika attempted to ambush Marty Rathbun at LAX. They came off looking like lunatic cultists in the attempt:

5. Warren McShane — President Religious Technology Center.

Marty Rathbun on David Miscavige and Warren McShane:

“He (Miscavige) appointed to President of RTC (Religious Technology Center) Warren McShane, intelligence trained Guardians Office case officer.  He told Warren to his face in my presence on more than one occasion that the only reason he continued to retain Warren was his lying ability; he needed an accomplished liar to front for him when it came to depositions seeking to break the wall of secrecy surrounding Miscavige’s hands on involvement with unlawful operations.”

Miscavige Rubber Stamps: These Sea Org members  sign whatever they are told to sign.

6. Alan Cartwright – Legal Officer CSI – has been deposed in Rathbun v. Miscavige, Former GO.

7. Mike Ellis – International Justice Chief. Weighs in at a hefty 315 pounds and has a heart problem. Why doesn’t the Church take better care of this man?

8. Ellen Reynolds — Secretary CSI, signs 990-T’s. Has been on staff for decades.

9. Lynn Farny — CSI books are in his possession as of 2012, former GO

10. Carl Heldt – His name is associated with the Scientology Int’l Reserves Trust (SIRT) in 2011.

11. Austin Nickels – COS WUS books are in his possession as of 2012

12. Glen Stilo — FSO books are in his possession as of 2012

13. Diane Gillott – CCI books are in her possession as of 2011

14. Ludwig Alpers – FSSO books are in his possession as of 2012

15. Arthur Bolstad – CST books are in his possession as of 2011

16. Ryland Perkins – Secretary of ASI, the for-profit arm of CST.


17. Shelly Miscavige –wife of David Miscavige — has fallen from favor with her husband. She has not been seen in public for about eight years and is presumably locked up at  Scientology’s secret Twin Peaks base after crossing her husband on Church matters.

Left: Shelly Miscavige, the disappeared wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige.

L. Ron Hubbard also made his wife Mary Sue persona non grata after she was sent to prison for her role in Operation Snow White.

Actress Leah Remini famously filed a missing persons report on Shelly with LAPD and this became big news story.

18. Seating is everything in the Church of Scientology — always look in the front row at Scientology events and you will see everyone who is anyone. Seating matters to David Miscavige and this is why he made Sea Org members play a sick game of musical chairs.
