Bob and Trish Duggan propping up South Africa Scientology Ideal Orgs

Udarnik,

It's worth your time to dig into Pharmacyclics. I'd really welcome your thoughts about it.

Yeah, inventors almost always get screwed. Admittedly, like all startups, the company seemed to have some cray cray in its DNA. Duggan leveraged his investment by running off the founder back in 2008.

But it's the two people who seem closest to Duggan (the COO and the investor information VP) who have my attention. COO Maky Zanganey has been with Duggan for ten years or longer. She's a French-Persian with a D.D.S. whose "interesting" background and psychology are described at http://www.fiercebiotech.com/special-reports/maky-zanganeh-top-women-biotech-2013. At that link, Duggan describes his protege as a "... make it go right and do what needs to be done" entrepreneur."

By now, you should be able to translate that Scientologese into "get the stat up by Thursday at two o'clock, no matter what you have to do to make it happen!"

And the investor relations chief (Ramses Erdtmann) is a German broker-dealer OT8, which has to be the trifecta of skills in this sector of the galaxy for making it go right. (See above.)

If/when the CFO (Manmeet Soni) and/or key medicos/trials people are replaced, my spidey senses will be on fire.

In any event, this guy may (or may not) have information to share.

Re: Bob Duggan - Forbes May 2014 Article re: Pharmacyclics

$20 million was long ago, but yes he is worth around 2 billion.

It is not known whether Bob Duggan is ashamed to be connected to Scientology as he studiously avoids the word in his website Bob Duggan the Philanthropist.
Bob Duggan has likely given the *CHURCH* much much more than $20 million. The IAS is only one of the Church money extortion entities. He has vastly donated to Super Power, to Ideal orgs, BASICS,. FREEWINDS, for FSO services, the Ls etc etc etc.
If Charmaine Rodgers is his Registrar, I can guess he has forked over $100 million in the last 35 years….
So now he is funding Ideal Orgs South Africa.
Miscavige ribbon cutting Photo Ops will boast that South Africa is booming out the roof hence the needs for vast new Real Estate. The truth being one whale cut the check.
Now the question is ~~ what is Duggan’s new interest in South Africa ?
Santa Barbara Org on State Street is a grotesque old building that radiates an odor or mustiness and an aging smell. It hits you as you enter. So this dinosaur building exists on Duggan’s door step, no money for Santa Barbara while he sends money to South Africa ? Hmmmmmmmm.

From Tony Ortega:

And for Scientology’s biggest donor, we really had to do some guesstimating. As you could see from our previous list, we came up with $40 million for Diamond Maximus, and maybe another 2 million for “with Honors”?


Bob Duggan and family — Diamond Maximus with Honors ($42 million)
Again, we’re doing our best to estimate these numbers based on the progression published in Scientology’s own 2006 brochure. Duggan might have given less, but he also might given much more.
As Bloomberg magazine reported last year, Duggan became a billionaire when a pharmaceutical company he owns hit the jackpot with a new cancer drug showing great promise in trials.
Besides funding the IAS, Duggan also helped Scientology purchase the Freewinds in 1987, and he’s given generously to Miscavige’s Ideal Org program.

The upcoming May 5, 2014 Forbes magazine issue will feature an article written by Matthew Herper about Bob Duggan & Pharmacyclics.

"A Lucky Drug Made Pharmacyclics' Robert Duggan A Billionaire. Will Long-Term Success Follow?"

Here's a link to the online version of Mr. Herper's article: http://www.forbes.com/sites/davidsh...-behind-a-promising-experimental-cancer-drug/
Note: The comments section ^^^ is open. :whistling:

Excerpt: (I disabled all links in the text below.)

Bob Duggan was enjoying just your average Tampa vacation–a visit to the headquarters of the Church of Scientology, to which he’s a major donor, and a double date with one of the world’s top supermodels–when a board member at Pharmacyclics, a biotechnology company he had invested in, interrupted the party with some urgent news. The board was resigning en masse in favor of his slate of directors. Duggan, who had run a cookie company and pioneered startups in Ethernet and robotic surgery–but knew zilch about running a biotech firm–would take the helm. That was in 2008. Six years later, improbably, Duggan is a billionaire.

I think most people will agree that, as human beings, we duplicate people we perceive as having the winning personality. I found this to be true.

When David Miscavige was BFF with Tom Cruise - did Tom Cruise take on Miscavige's valence or did Miscavige take on Tom Cruise's valance?

I think there was equal swopping of valences.

What a bromance? They wear the same clothes and sunglasses. Do the spies living with Tom Cruise call DM right before Tom leaves to meet DM and tell DM what Tom is wearing - all the way down to the sunglasses? HH - would love to have you chime in on how that would roll. Cringe!

Mission Impossible meets Dictator!

When I saw this photo of Whale Bob Duggan - I think there is some valance shifting going on...anyone else think he looks a little like DM? Weathered skin, hair style...if only he would take his right arm and extend it to the end of the table? LOL

What a suppressive phony! He knows $cientology cures cancer but he's flogging a cancer cure wonder drug? Nice con, Bob. You really are a $cientologist.

From Tony Ortega:

A perplexing tale about Bob Duggan, the richest Scientologist in the world

Gentle readers, we have an unusual and, we must say, rather mystifying story to tell you today. It’s about a successful businessman by the name of Robert W. Duggan. This photo of Bob, who is a robust 70 years old, is taken from his personal website, which we encourage you to visit.

snip:


Now we’re going to tell you about something that you can’t find on the websites of either Bob or Trish orForbes magazine. And in order to tell this part of the story, we want to introduce you to a fellow named Charlie Mikich.



This is a photo that Charlie recently posted to Facebook, and it shows him with his youngest of two daughters. Charlie is not a wealthy person. He’s been through some tough times, scraping by and living a pretty uprooted life that’s taken him all around the country.

More than a decade ago, he hooked up with another uprooted person, a young woman he met on a long Greyhound bus ride to San Francisco. They moved in together, then kept moving. They got pregnant in Texas, and they had a son in Cut Bank, Montana in August 2001.

For the purposes of this story, we’ll refer to that little boy simply as “V.”

Charlie’s restless girlfriend left for Santa Barbara and then sent for him. By the time Charlie and his infant son got there, his girlfriend was homeless and pregnant by another man. (She had the boy, and we’ll refer to him — V’s half brother — as “T.”) Charlie tried to care for V on his own, but the county stepped in and placed the boy with foster parents who ended up adopting the boy.

Some ten years later, when Charlie had his first daughter, the state, concerned about Charlie’s history, tried to take the girl away. During testimony in the ensuing court battle, Charlie was asked about his son, V. In a court transcript Charlie supplied us, you can see his daughter is referred to as “A.M.” and his son as “V.D.”…




Charlie won that court battle, and has custody of both of his daughters today. But a decade earlier, he didn’t have an attorney, and he says he had little choice but to agree to let a wealthy local couple, Bob and Trish Duggan, adopt his son. They also adopted V’s half-brother, T.

Charlie says it was Trish Duggan that he worked with, arranging the details of the adoption. Although Charlie says he didn’t like the idea, the Duggans changed the boy’s name to begin with a “D.” They also changed the name of V’s half-brother.

Charlie says that he last had contact with V when the boy was about two years old, and the last photo he received was when the boy was three. Since having his battle over his daughters, he now says that he regrets not fighting to hang onto his son, and is still interested in being a part of his life. But he hasn’t heard anything about V in years.

So Charlie was very surprised when we told him we had photos of V at 11 and 12 years old. And in this next section we’ll tell you why we had them.



These folks are Shelley Ashurst, her husband Andrew Jackson, and their daughter Dominique Sundelowitz. They live in Johannesburg, South Africa, and until recently they were very active longtime Scientologists.

Shelley explained to us that in 2012, her husband Andrew was involved with a church project that was having some trouble. Andrew was a subcontractor on a project to renovate a building in Pretoria to become Scientology’s next “Ideal Org.”

I will state in Black and White why Bob and Trish Duggan shipped out V to good a Loyal South African family.
Carol and Robin are paid $8000 a MONTH by the Duggans to care for V and that includes V getting Scientology auditing.
V is violent. He has been violent since a very child. There is an incident where he took up a knife and stabbed
someone. He has been known to run around the property screaming "I want to KILL, I want to KILL".
The Duggans just COULD not live with this kid anymore.
Even in Clearwater the Duggans and their kids were so disruptive, including T and V that they were asked to rent a house off base. They rented a house on Belleaire Beach.
Imagine the top Donor being asked to leave the base, such was the disruption of the kids.
Probably the #1 vampire Reg (Sales person) of the entire Clearwater operation is South African Charmaine Rogers. She moves in to the space of the target and does not leave, even pursuing for 2-3 days til she gets the money by fair means or foul.
Charmaine has bragged that ONLY she is permitted to deal with Duggan for money, and that Duggan will finance all Ideal Orgs in South Africa.

There is an *arrangement* where Duggan's violent child is taken care of by Scientologists and generous donations are made.
Here's Charmaine who extorts megabucks from Bob Duggan, $50 million and counting.

I have major issues with parents that dump their kids because they have behavioral issues which resulted from something in their upbringing. Sadly, because the Duggans are Scilons, they would never be able to provide their child with the type of psychiatric care & therapy he needs.

Also on this thread page was this interesting revelation:

In 2006, the Duggan family moved to Florida where the children all became involved with the Episcopal Church of the Ascension on a weekly basis. The lead minister, John Hiers, was often a guest speaker at St. Paul’s School where several of the Duggan children attended. Trish and her husband have studied the works of L. Ron Hubbard since 1975 and apply his Data Series Evaluators Course and his book Science of Survival to their lives on a daily basis.

It is just a shame that that wealth is not going to something actually useful to South African Society, like improving education for the poor kids in that country. Corporate Scientology very likely isn't going to improve conditions for anyone but themselves with those buildings. Unless...wait, it's coming to me! Miscavage will be turning all of the empty Ideal Orgs into orphanages - that has been his secret plan all along!...Right?

Oh, but maybe it is going to something useful.

Maybe they are allocating some of Duggan's donations in Africa towards handing out The Way To Happiness to the miserable folks starving in Ethiopia. (i.e. If they had "happiness" they wouldn't be "miserable", right?)

Or, doing PTS handlings on all those ill people in Western Africa who are rollercoastering from Ebola. On this account, some of the funds could have been well spent buying bright yellow raincoats for Scn Volunteer Ministers to go into Liberia and get the affected beings there to find their out-ethics situation that is causing them to go PTS.

Scientology: It has wondrously effective plans to clear Africa and eliminate all suffering, starvation, war and disease. All it needs is just one more building, won't you help us Bob? And, Bob, if you do help us, we'll help you offload that embarrassing downstat db you adopted and hide him in Africa. Deal?

They like to adopt children and when they think they got defective ones they pay Scientology and individual Scientologists to take them off their hands......and keep quiet about it. Disgusting behavior on the Duggan's part in my opinion.

Karen, I don't think it's appropriate ( or even allowed here ) to post stuff about others children, named in full or not. I just feel it's important to mention this. We don't need to know the particulars. It's not fair for the kids to later come across things written on the internet about them by adults when they were kids. Please reconsider

I think the story of V is very very critical to the overview of what is happening in South Africa regarding the mega bucks donated there.
It isn't just gossip.
The Cult not only got a cool $50 million from the Duggans but is guaranteed the funding of future South African Ideal orgs
because of V and his shipment to be cared for there.
The spin and lies of the Church is that there is such DEMAND for Scientology that Ideal Orgs are needed.
The truth is only one or 2 whales here are there write the check and the locals are scammed for the rest.
if the Mods want to edit, that is fine.
Otherwise, my posting stands as is.
Be alert for Mike Rinder's blog tomorrow.....

I respect you immensely, but I think comments about the violence of a child on the internet could ruin any of their job prospects thereafter, possibly any relationships that they want to begin with somebody, and further marginalise them from society if they are headed that way. That is why the courts do not make public the records of juvenile offenders - they consider that they deserve a clean slate in life once their brains finish maturing and a new start. I actually agree with Mary in this case, but I am sure you have the best motives and everything.

If children are being used as pawns by C of $ ...and scientologists.....then it should be posted, noted and discussed. IMO

Should American Parents even be able to send a couple of their kids.....5000 miles away, to a foreign country..... to be raised by strangers?

Have they been sent to a Certified Boarding School....? Doesn't sound like it....

Perhaps Social Services in the Bay Area should be notified....?
