                     Scientology Leader David Miscavige's Wife Has Been Missing Since 2006
Ashley Lutz   | Jul. 3, 2012,



Scientology leader David Miscavige is often cited as Tom Cruise's best friend. He was best man at Cruise's ill-fated marriage to Katie Holmes and once threw the star a huge birthday party.

But the numerous references to Miscavige left out one really sketchy detail: his wife, Shelly, hasn't been seen since 2006.

Shelly was another Scientologist who was rumored to have led the church's search for Tom's third wife.

According to a recent New York Post article, Shelly set up Tom and Katie:

After the Cruz breakup, the lovelorn actor turned to his best friend, Scientology leader Miscavige, for help in finding a new wife. The diminutive church boss, who has a notoriously volcanic temper, became irritated with constant calls from Tom. As the head of a multibillion-dollar operation, he felt it was below him to be seeking out women for the Hollywood star. He deputized his wife, Shelly, to take over the task.

The New Yorker's Lawrence Wright reported that last year Shelley has been missing since 2006 and "her status is unknown." Just before she went missing, she had supposedly filled several job vacancies without her husband's permission.

Misbehaving Scientologists have been known to allegedly be locked up in "The Hole," a group of buildings where people are held captive. The church denies it exists.

Miscavige also has allegedly violent tendencies, according to the article:

Twelve other defectors told me that they had been beaten by Miscavige, or had witnessed Miscavige beating other church staff members. Most of them, like John Peeler, noted that Miscavige’s demeanor changed “like the snap of a finger.” Others who never saw such violence spoke of their constant fear of the leader’s anger.
So far, Shelley hasn't surfaced. Here's a missing persons poster put out by one anti-Scientology group:

The Church of Scientology’s rambling paranoid letter to Vanity Fair: the ‘herculean’ David Miscavige

IN this month’s Vanity Fair, Maureen Orth talks about the Church of Scientology. She mentions David Miscavige and Tom Cruise. She asks The Church of Scientology 32 questions. Jeffrey K. Riffer, of the law firm Elkins Kalt Weintraub Reuben Gartside LLP, writes a response: It’s dated August 16, 2012.

                    David Miscavige: A cult figure in the fame game                July 2012

                                      THE GUARDIAN

The collapse of Tom Cruise's marriage has been blamed on Scientology's leader, who has transformed an arcane religion into a global operation. It commands both devotion and fear, its influence hugely enhanced by its hold on Hollywood

At first glance, the handsome Georgian mansion in the heart of the Sussex countryside could easily be mistaken for a National Trust property. Indeed, at this time of year, Saint Hill Manor would not look out of place in a BBC costume drama; lawns are manicured and greenhouses stocked with abundant produce.

Only the presence of stern-faced young men sporting pristine black naval uniforms and white flat caps indicate Saint Hill's true calling. The cadets are members of the Sea Org, the 6,000-strong unit within the Church of Scientology that is run along quasi-military lines and which is treated with a degree of respect that borders on fear by some of its followers.

Many members are little more than children who have signed contracts pledging to perform a billion years of service for the fledgling church which was set up in 1954 by the former pulp fiction writer L Ron Hubbard, and is famed for its celebrity followers.

Banned from having children while part of the group, Sea Org members are considered the Scientology elite, shock troops to be dispatched to the church's trouble spots. Hubbard declared that they had "unlimited ethics powers".

One of the Sea Org's earliest recruits at Saint Hill, a major Scientology training centre, was David Miscavige, a Roman Catholic raised in New Jersey who joined at the age of 16, having spent several years attending the church's courses which his father hoped would cure his asthma. Miscavige was quickly selected as one of only a handful of people allowed to work directly with Hubbard, who impressed upon his apprentice the powerful role the media played in promoting religion.

By 17, he had become Hubbard's director of photography, producing Scientology's first training films. Groomed for greatness from such a young age, it seemed inevitable that Miscavige would replace Hubbard when the Scientology founder died in 1986 at the age of 74, leaving behind an organisation that claims to have "millions of members in 167 countries".

Not that Miscavige, 52, saw his mentor's demise as creating a void. Invoking the sci-fi-rich language that peppers Hubbard's voluminous Scientology tracts, Miscavige pronounced that Hubbard had "moved on to the next level" and declared that he had "discarded the body he had used in this lifetime".

This obsession with progress runs through Scientology. In its dianetics courses, Scientology followers are promised that they can attain ever higher levels of self-knowledge and self-worth. In fact, there is nothing dianetics cannot do, according to its supporters. A single course, for example, can massively inflate a person's IQ. It is estimated that to complete a full series of dianetic courses, and achieve the highest levels within the church, costs several hundred thousand dollars, a claim rejected by Scientology whose transformation into a sophisticated multinational organisation is largely down to Miscavige.

Small-framed, sharp-featured and with an unnerving gaze, Miscavige's official title is "chairman of the Board of Religious Technology Centre", a stand-alone organisation whose remit is to "preserve, maintain and protect the Scientology religion". According to the church, the centre "holds the ultimate ecclesiastical authority regarding the standard and pure application of L Ron Hubbard's religious technologies".

What this means in practice, according to those who have quit the church, is that Miscavige wields absolute power over Scientology's followers.

It was this power that reportedly proved too much for Katie Holmes who, reportedly fearing the church's influence over her husband, Tom Cruise, and their six-year-old daughter Suri, filed for divorce. This triggered a tsunami of negative headlines for Scientology at a time when it was already battling lurid allegations on a number of fronts, many focused on Miscavige himself.

Today, Miscavige rarely gives interviews, making it difficult to substantiate or reject some of the claims levelled against him. In the few interviews he gave in the Nineties, he appears in sharp suits, coiffured, coiled and barely able to contain his frustration at the questions to which he is subjected.

What is undoubtedly true is that Miscavige enjoys a close relationship with Cruise, 50, who has been a Scientologist for almost half his life. Described as the "third person" in Cruise's marriage, Miscavige was best man at Cruise's lavish wedding to Holmes in Italy in 2006.

Two years earlier, in a special ceremony at Saint Hill, Miscavige had presented Cruise with Scientology's Freedom Medal of Valor, describing the actor as "the most dedicated Scientologist" he knew. The appreciation is mutual. Cruise has referred to Miscavige as unusually intelligent and compassionate.

That the church – and Miscavige – should prize Cruise so assiduously is no surprise. Hubbard knew the value of celebrity and exploited it to full advantage from the start, declaring "a culture is only as great as its dreams and its dreams are dreamed by artists".

This maxim has been applied with vigour as the church, under Miscavige, has expanded dramatically, becoming a multimillion dollar global operation in just four decades. In addition to Cruise, other high-profile supporters include John Travolta, Cheers star Kirstie Alley and the musician Beck.

But while the church's obsession with stars has helped it attract followers, pushing religion through the prism of celebrity carries an exacting price. The church has been subjected to an avalanche of negative stories disseminated across the internet which, by their sheer number, have made them difficult to deflect.

Scientology claims the abuse it receives is typical of the treatment meted out down the centuries to any new religion. But a plethora of lawsuits alleging that Scientology has harassed its critics, humiliated and beaten its followers and forced family members to break off contact with their loved ones, all denied by the church, have conspired to leave a sinister impression.

There is also unease over the apparent disappearance of Miscavige's wife, Shelly, another former member of the Sea Org, who was responsible for introducing Holmes to Cruise and who has reportedly not been seen in public since 2007.

In a letter to the Observer, Jeffrey K Riffer, a lawyer who acts for Shelly Miscavige, denied claims his client was missing. "Mrs Miscavige has been working nonstop in the church, as she always has."....

                                   How Miscavige Plans to “Clear the Planet”

Posted on September 14, 2012 by mrinder | 155 Comments

by Mike Rinder

Here is the latest poster put out by the RCS (copyrighted to CSI who are apparently now the main fundraisers for the IAS).

It consists entirely of a quote from Chairman Mao that perhaps is more candid than he intended.  He clearly delineates HIS strategy for planetary clearing. It doesn’t involve training or auditing or Grade Charts or anything so messy and difficult that would require actual DELIVERY.

The “IAS” is going to “Clear The Planet” — hip hip hooray for the IAS. Hip hip hooray for “Chairman of the Bored” of Scientology Inc. (inclusive of the IAS and  every other entity that is part of the big ball of wax that rolls around under his thumb like an oversized booger).

Remember the days when Scientology was about what L. Ron Hubbard said? And even later when Miscavige at least pretended that was the case?

Well, here it is in big, bold, colorful letters: the pretense has dropped and the thin veneer of the facade has come down (to paraphrase Dan Sherman).....

         Exposed: Explosive New Court Papers Allege How Scientology Leader David Miscavige Rules The Church With An Iron Fist — Read The Documents!

Posted on Sep 6, 2013

The veil of secrecy surrounding Scientology is growing thinner by the day.

Shocking claims about private investigators, intimidation tactics and even lies under oath have emerged in new court documents, painting a picture of just how far church leader David Miscavige — the best pal of Tom Cruise – will supposedly go to keep control over the embattled institution.

This latest onslaught comes from an affidavit by former Scientologist Marty Rathbun, whose wife, Monique Rathbun, is suing Miscavige and several others for allegedly executing a detailed campaign of surveillance and harassment against her and her husband, as RadarOnline.com has previously reported.

When Miscavige responded to Monique’s lawsuit by saying he had no knowledge of the other defendants and had never conducted business in Texas, Rathbun, who served as Cruise’s personal auditor, felt compelled to respond with a lengthy affidavit revealing his version of the truth about Miscavige’s dealings.

READ THE COURT PAPERS HERE

“I served with Mr. Miscavige in Scientology’s Sea Organization for 27 years,” Rathbun explains in the documents.

“From 1982 to 2004, I answered directly to Mr. Miscavige … I was Mr. Miscavige’s second in command … In the history of Scientology, no other Church executive worked with Mr. Miscavige more closely, for a longer period of time, than I did.”

As for Miscavige, Rathbun says he has “unquestioned control of all of Scientology as its Sea Org Captain” since founder L. Ron Hubbard’s death in 1986.

One of Hubbard’s last directives to Miscavige, Rathbun claims, was to create “an intelligence, PR and legal network … that would protect Scientology’s spying and harassment operations by using buffer corporations and new levels of security.”

He also asked him to “by any means necessary, end the multitude of criminal and civil threats pending against Hubbard and Scientology,” Rathbun alleges. “And create a new corporate structure that would allow the Sea Org to operate as it always had, but with legal buffers in place that would prevent future ‘enemies’ from getting to Hubbard or other top Sea Org officers.”

Rathbun says that Miscavige succeeded beyond anyone’s imagination.

“Under Hubbard’s and Miscavige’s close supervision, I … effectively [continued] to silence potential critics and defectors without exposing Hubbard, Miscavige or the Scientology organizations to legal liability.”

Many former Scientologists, including Rathbun himself, have accused the church of harassment, but the church continues to deny their involvement and Miscavige’s specifically.

Rathbun claims that’s a lie.

Miscavige “ran the Scientology network as tightly as a naval captain runs a military vessel,” he states in court papers. “All the while we communicated to the world at large, including through our own false declarations, that Miscavige’s role was the same as that of any corporate board chairman.”

He claims, “I witnessed Miscavige’s control enforced without question from anyone … for the next 17 years. By the mid-1990s, Miscavige’s every utterance was ruthlessly enforced throughout all Scientology corporations. He regularly strode through Church of Scientology International’s California headquarters while barking verbal orders to anyone and everyone, from the janitors to managers responsible for Scientology management around the world.”

And in case they misheard him, Miscavige had employees follow him with tape recorders which were then handed to transcribers, Rathbun alleges. Those transcripts became memos and electronic alerts reminding employees to carry out Miscavige’s commands, he claims, and if they did not comply, they were punished.

Those outside of Miscavige’s control — Scientology defectors and critics – were the target of an entirely different surveillance program “carefully micromanaged” by Miscavige, Rathbun claims.

“Every evening I would receive an intelligence briefing in writing … summarizing reports from private investigators and Scientologists serving as undercover spies watching and interacting with Scientology critics,” Rathbun explains in the court papers.

Rathbun claims Miscavige then read the report and would instruct Rathbun to order “an operative or private investigator to find out something to do concerning the target of infiltration or investigation,” or sometimes just rant about the report’s subject.

Rathbun also claims he compiled his own morning briefings for Miscavige for 22 years detailing “media stories, investigations, legal cases, security breaches and potential security situations” having to do with the church, with the “highest priority” matters being those having to do with the Scientology commander himself.

Journalists, lawyers, or anyone else contacting the church about Miscavige would speak to a representative fully briefed by Rathbun and would be monitored by him throughout their contact with the church, heCLAIMS.

Now, Rathbun claims, Miscavige is trying to exert the same control over his wife’s lawsuit — and making up lies in the process.

Miscavige has claimed that he does not know his fellow defendants, two private investigators. But Rathbun insists in court papers that Miscavige has both known of and actively used both men’s services in Texas since the 1990s. In particular, he alleges  they were used to investigate the family of Scientologist Lisa McPherson when she died under the church’s care.

Miscavige also told the court, “I have never availed myself of the privilege of conducting activities within the State of Texas … have not made any purposeful contacts with the State of Texas … and have not otherwise availed myself of the benefits and protection of Texas law.”

But Rathbun claims although Miscavige was on the base in California, he frequently directed surveillance campaigns in Texas and hired attorneys and private investigators there as well.

In all, Rathbun’s affidavit presents a never-before-seen picture of the extent of the figure’s power within the church.

Monique Rathbun’s case will have a temporary injunction hearing next Thursday.

Dean — I can assure you, Miscavige has a very large vocabulary, is an extremely fast reader and is very intelligent. His high school “drop out” status was that he joined the Sea Org when he turned 16, not because he could not complete high school. After all, say what you will about his supposed incident on the internship at AOSHUK, the fact remains he was ON the Class IV Internship when he was 12. That is not someone who is slow. He reads a LOT of books. That he has a high IQ doesn’t mean he isn’t a sociopath. This idea he is some sort of village idiot incapable of putting a sentence together has some currency because of the “high school dropout” pigeon-holing. It’s just not true.
