Including what we found in Scientology before it became a cult

Dealing with Vanity Fair, Miscavige style

I’m taking no end of enjoyment in watching the “respectable press” tearing Miscavige a new one over the Scientology Inc/Miscavige Arranged Tom Cruise Wife mess.

Marty Rathbun, on his part, is busy keeping up with the fallout from the usual Miscavige-style frantic mishandling, finger-pointing, and saber rattling.

You can get caught up with Marty here and here and here (I’m thinking we owe the rapidly-appearing and timely updates on Marty’s site in part to Monique’s diligence.)

The Moronic Misguided Miscavige Media Minions haven’t figured out how to apply this simple non-LRH maxim:

● It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to open your mouth and remove all doubt . — George Eliot
● Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.– Abraham Lincoln
● It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.– Mark Twain (1835-1910)
● Even a fool, when he holdeth his peace, is counted wise: and he that shutteth his lips is esteemed a man of understanding. — Bible, Proverbs 17:28.

Regardless of the quote’s attribution, we can see from Marty’s reports that Miscavige doesn’t know when to shut the F up.

The interesting thing I see in this mess is that if Nazanin Boniadi signed some kind of Non-Disclosure agreement, she may be in the same boat as Debbie Cook: If Miscavige in his arrogance thinks he can sue Nazanin about the Vanity Fair article…and there’s currently no reason that he can…he’ll be back in court listening to someone testify under oath about mistreatment at the hands of Miscavige and Scientology Inc.

Same goes for the sources in the VF article.

The ABC News follow-up coverage of the VF leak has been particularly pleasing.

And one of the glaring and devastating facts to come out of the coverage is that Miscavige and other Scientology Inc operatives were privy to the supposedly private-and-protected-by-penitent/priest-confidentiality “sessions” that Nazanin underwent as part of her vetting process…both in video form and in the written auditing reports.

This is another chapter in the “IRS now has evidence about another aspect it was defrauded on” story when granting Scientology Inc tax-exemption. After all, a parishioner sees stamped on his auditing folders that the contents are protected by priest/penitent confidentiality.

That’s not for the parishioner’s benefit. It’s there as a result of the raid on ASHO in the 70s where the FBI confiscated preclear auditing folders.

Scientology Inc is notorious for using the contents of a preclear’s auditing and ethics folders to convince the person to “toe the line” or even to get him declared a suppressive person.

When you go to the ABC News site, do a search on SCIENTOLOGY or CRUISE; they’ve got lots of juicy stuff there.

And I could be easily convinced that Matt Lauer is rubbing his hands together and laughing about Cruise’s misfortunes…again.

Riddle: How many lawyers does it take to try to intimidate NBC, CBS, ABC, and Vanity Fair?

Answer: None.

Riddle: How many overpaid disingenuous legal double-speakers does it take to try to intimidate NBC, CBS, ABC, and Vanity Fair?

Answer: I dunno. How many overpaid disingenuous legal double-speakers can be paid for with all the money the IAS garnered from gullible Scientology parishioners in the past 6 months?

That’s a very interesting point about the priest/penitent confidentiality of PC folders. I was not aware of that fact at all.

It’s not in LRH policy, but it is in the Scientology Policy Directive 26 July 1985 0118R LABELLING OF TECHNICAL AND ETHICS FILES. Interesting that it’s dated only six months before LRH’s death.
