    This has been picked up by tons of folks and will only continue the juggernaut that now will destroy Scientology via a continual media cycle that only grows .

    The courts will not be needed as the press mercilessly pound DM and the cult into oblivion . They may come and hop on the bandwagon but DM is showing signs of totally losing his shit in expletive laced tirades directed at the press .

    Good luck explaining this to anybody - the details are damning .:duh::duh::duh:

    My google of LA Times today...shows a "below the fold" front page story....and no pic.

    Is there really a front page pic? Interwebs shows that Carolina shooting as the pic....

    Miscavige is a bastardization, either by a lazy immigration or school official, or by an illiterate ancestor, of the Polish / Lithuanian name Miskavitch.

    AFAIK, theirs is the only branch of the family to use that spelling.

    We need to fan the flames on these stories. Ideas anyone?

    Sounds to me like the hounds of Investigative Journalism....have been unleashed....and it is open hunting season on the Cult....and all its tentacles...

    Perhaps a game of one ups man ship....will start as to who can publish the most damning story....that would be nice.....

    The amount of money spent on this PI detail is astounding. 18 months worth at $10K a week. Astounding. A sea org member would have to work for four years (many more hours than these guys) to make what these guys were getting paid for one week of dirty work. Miscavige is a sick f---.

    That would explain the pirogi-like precision of his thought process.

    I used to have ideas but this is so out of control and the stories are coming faster and getting more damning - the bottom is falling out . The cult relied on its money and lawyers and they are now toothless . No one is scared of them at all anymore . The word is out - it is open season on Scientology and all of the chickens are coming home to roost.

    Comedians and journalists will be guided by the Tory Magoos and Karens and Mikes and Martys and Tony Ortegas of the world to annihilate the cult to a degree we have never seen anything or one smeared in our lifetimes . And they will tell the truth and only reveal a tiny fraction of DM and the cult's millions of crimes .

    We can sit back and watch the apocalypse .

    And prepare for the aftermath .

    WoW...the Cult of Hubbard leader, sure likes Private Investigators........

    The Cult is sure a meal ticket for these guys.....

    If he is hiring them through "intermediaries..." this would seem to me to be a very fruitful area to research and look into....

    Who are these "intermediaries"....Law Firms?....Which ones?.....How many?......and or other "intermediaries....?"

    If they are Law Firms....are they doing other "representation" for the cult? ...... What might that be?

    I don't have time to read all the posts now, so I apologise if this has been pointed out already. This article was front page news in the printed edition and was continued on the final page of the main section of the printed edition (being the only article on that page).

    Daily Circulation: 739,147 - multiply that by 2 and you could assume that the article caught the eyes of about 1.5 million southern Californians. Not bad !!

    Correction: The readership formula is 2.5x - so we're looking at about 1.84 million)

    I just Googled 'The Los Angeles Times' and this was the first story up

    According to the report on the NBC News video clip...

    Scientology attorney's statement regarding Dwayne Powell's telephone call with David Miscavige:

    "No such conversation ever took place. It is unadulterated [expletive]...
    Mr. Miscavige has always taken care of his father and continues to do so."

    NBC News directly quotes Ron Miscavige, Sr. as saying he was:

    "Devastated to learn about the events in question."

    Hypothetically speaking, if there's a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) that expressly states that neither party is permitted to discuss:

    (1) anything about their relationship to each other; or,
    (2) either parties' relationship to scientology,

    then David Miscavige's attorney's statement above may well have violated the NDA.
    But Ron Miscavige Sr.'s comment, if accurately quoted, does not. Heh.

    Note to Ron Miscavige, Sr. and every other person who is approached to enter into a non-disclosure agreement with scientology:
    Demand to be paid at least twice as much as what scientology pays PIs to spy on private citizens. $20k a week -- whee!

    Nice. Lace sensors don't hum. I'm a Tele man myself. And a fretless J bassist with no Jaco envy.
