David Miscavige the Cheater

Posted on August 3, 2011 by martyrathbun09| 72 Comments


One of the essences of Reverse Scientology as practiced in the Radical Corporate organization is to indoctrinate through the CULTure there that life is not a game. No, they are taught that life is a deadly serious activity. They are conditioned to believe that life is an arduous struggle against evil enemies intent on enslavement – and that any lapse in seriousness about this is a transgression requiring adjustment of attitude. Adjustment toward a much more solid, black and white, us vs. them, seriousness. The Radical Corporate Scientology view is that of its leader David Miscavige. Win at any cost; defeat the designated enemy by any means necessary. Become whatever it is that the leader has you resist. And above all, NEVER question the enemy status of anyone Botox Dave fingers. Thus, the cult has become a sorry example of that which Scientology once served as an alternative to: intolerant, warring institutions.




Miscavige the Cheat



Those who know or knew Miscavige personally will tell you that he is incapable of the activity of games, by pure definition. He is obsessed with using “games” to create “no-games” conditions (that is he must dominate and overwhelm into nothingness every opponent – real or imagined – he perceives as confronting him).


Even on a personal level, there is no “game” Miscavige ever played that he did not cheat in order to “win.” In basketball, he blatantly and violently fouled his opponents and required his “teammates” to do the same (he also always made sure I was on his team, who back in the day could drain ‘em from just about anywhere:). Of course, because of his position no one could argue – and by violent overwhelm, against all rules, Miscavige would invariably “win.”


Even in the card game Pinochle, which he required execs to play with him (nobody, and I mean nobody, ever played any game with the habitual cheat on his own determinism), Miscavige overtly grabbed the cards of his opponents to view them whenever he lagged behind on points.
The obsession with winning at whatever cost of course applied to the group too. Our standard operating procedure when it came to handling a new flap, was to move in and hire the local rainmakers who, with enough palm greasing, could put the church on top at the end of the day, by any means fair or foul. I’ll give an example to illustrate.


Between April 2002 and September 2003 Miscavige had me stationed at the Clearwater Florida Headquarters of the church (also known as Flag). The primary program he ran me directly on with daily micromanagement orders was the Pinellas County Public Relations Area Control program. In short, use Public Relations and money to influence local leaders and authorities to protect the church from the disasterous potential fallout from the Lisa McPherson civil cases that continued after the June 2000 dismissal of the criminal charges against the church.


First order of business was hiring – at a very handsome salary – the number one Republican political consultant (in an historically Republican region) in Pinellas county, one Mary Repper. The program Mary and I developed under Miscavige’s direct supervision was simple.


First, Mary finds out the favorite Scientology celebrity of each influential person in Pinellas County politics and government (including law enforcement).


Second, I contact that celebrity and close him/her to come to Mary Repper’s home for a dinner with a collection of those local officials who happen to love that particular celebrity. The targets are won over by intimate face time with someone he or she is giddy over.


The Mayor of Clearwater, the Mayor of Tampa, County Supervisors, the Pinellas County Sheriff, the Pinellas County Public Defender, many prominent lawyers, and a number of other local public figures attended these special evenings with a star.


Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Greta Van Sustern, and soap star Michelle Stafford each had their own special audiences appear to be spellbound face to face at the home of Ms. Repper.


MIchelle Stafford with Mary Repper



We then used a number of the people so wowed at these events to get footholds in with judges in the Pinellas county courts – infiltrating the courts indirectly with the messages that “Scientology is good and being discriminated against”, “McPherson’s lawyers and family were bad, gold diggers exploiting Lisa’s death.” For those who haven’t read the complete St Petersburg Times Truth Revealed articles, Lisa McPherson was killed on church premises on David Miscaviges causation.


We also hired laywers who knew judges assigned to our cases in Pinellas County, and paid them so handsomely they were willing to make ex parte contact with and inculcate the judges directly with those same messages. That occured with Judge Beach who was assigned to the civil case, Estate Of Lisa McPherson vs Church of Scientology, and Judge George Greer, Church of Scientology vs. Executor of the Estate of Lisa McPherson in Pinellas county probate court. The lawyer involved with Judge Beach was Lee Fugate of Zuckerman, Spaeder (Tampa Office), http://www.zuckerman.com/tampa/. The lawyers involved with George Greer were F. Wallace Pope and Ed Armtrong of Johnson, Pope, Bokor, Ruppel & Burns, LLP.


So effective were Fugate’s many ex parte, casual meetings with Judge Beach that Beach effectively extorted the McPherson family into accepting a settlement on terms they felt degraded and disappointed with having to accept. And that is the end product of Miscavige’s “game” – no game, no rules, just application of overwhelm by any means necessary to make the other side feel degraded and so that he can stand, chest out, boot on the necks of his prey.


Miscavige the "conquerer"



As I have noted before, David Miscvige once told Tom Cruise “I wouldn’t mind George Bush being our Constantine” (the first “Christian” Roman Emporer, who converted in a deal with the “churchies” at the time by negotating what is and isn’t Christianity and then enforcing the “faith”); because Miscavige admired Bush’s alleged lack of intelligence and willingness to enforce ideas no matter how thick headed. In other words, his “perfect dissemination program”: force Scientology (read, Miscavige’s Papacy) down the throats of the populace at gunpoint.
The ultimate “product” of the church of Scientology is someone firmly in Miscavige’s valence, with no conscience, programmed to do the dictator’s bidding regardless of the merits or ethics of the matter. Devotion and surrender to the “winning” SP valence. And that product is one hundred and eighty degrees diametically opposed to what the churches promise and what the technology in good hands can deliver.


Remember that life is a game. The references within Scientology are legion on this fact. One I recommend in particular is Professional Auditor’s Bulletin 86 Causation and Knowledge, 29 May 1956. It is a very concise and clear sum up of what Scientology is and what it seeks to achieve. This has all been lost on Radical Corporate Scientologists. Yet, it is so central to what the subject is about, the fact that Miscavige has put his no-games-condition, overwhelm at all costs attitude in at all levels of Scientology, is the death knell of the subject (absent an outside agent picking up the pieces).


The end object of Scientology is not the making into nothing of all existence or the freeing the individual of any and all traps everywhere. The goal of Scientology is making the individual capable of living a better life in his own estimation and with his fellows and the playing of a better game.

So, I am confused. Is Marty saying that he is sorry that he improperly and unethically influenced the legal system?

Marty has several times publicly expressed regrets for his part in all that was done during his years in RTC. Your comment above is nothing but a Red Herring.

In the above article he reveals exactly how the course of Justice was subverted in the McPherson Civil case and names exactly which people were involved. This particular information has never before been available to the Scientology critic community.

According to Hubbard Scientology is a deadly serious activity, and since Scios are supposed to live and breathe Scientology 24/7, life becomes a deadly serious activity. Hubbard wanted enemies not merely defeated, they should be ruined utterly, if possible. And it was Hubbard who wrote that people being pts typre 3 sometimes cannot be kept alive during the introspection rundown - as was the case with Lisa McPherson.

Is Rathbun really that delusional or is he just merrily bending the facts to serve his own means? And what is worse?

It is called revisionist history. In this version, LRH was Gandhi and MLK and Jesus all rolled into one and everything bad about Scientology is the sole province of Mr. Miscavige. Unfortunately for the revisionists, that is inconsistent with many many many testimonies of former members.

What is described above by Marty is what is called in the normal world, "Psychological Warfare". Is is standard Psy Ops techniques, in conjunction with a good understanding of Sun Tsu's Art of War. It involves Carnegie's notions of How to Win Friends & Influence People.

Simply, one goes in and understands the mindset and buttons of ALL involved in any skirmish, and then ANY methods that "work", all morals and ethics aside, are used to "sway" the minds of the various participants. Frame innocent people in crimes they didn't commit, lie, deceive, manipulate the egos of key politicians - whatever it takes with the application of Tone 40, "we will not give up", total dedication, and the "ends justify the means".

Hubbard wrote the various advices and policies on HOW to do this. Miscavige is simply a VERY GOOD student (of Hubbard's).

I am glad that Marty is letting such information out, because such information does better show the face of the beast. And, it matters little that Marty doesn't correctly understand the actual sources and causes (Hubbard himself) of the various shenaningans created by corporate Scientology (over the past 50 years). Just as long as Marty and his fellow deluded groupies keep letting out more and more information that makes Scientology look like the assholes that they truly are.

Were there any bits left out......did they just use hob-nobbing, or did they also use blackmail etc..?
What was Rinders part in the McPherson scandal?

From what I can gather, Rinder and Rathbun were not involved in any way, as they were busy being beaten by David Miscavige at the time.

That's cast iron alibi.

I think Marty has done some good exposing DM's abuses - but when it comes to exposing data that could put DM away for good - well, it ain't forthcoming. And, I have no doubt that Marty does possess that type of data.

Sounds exciting when he dribbles out something about a hot topic like Lisa McPherson. How many years now since he has known about it, said nothing - and I guarantee - is now only telling part of what he knows.....

Fooled once, shame on you........fooled twice, shame on me!

Just curious, what type of data could put Miscavige away for good? Even if Marty literally knows where bodies are buried, what kind of evidence could he have to pin them on Miscavige?
