    I wanted to post this so people can access it.

    Since it doesn't belong on David's memorial thread here it is:


    This report is really a KR on Miscavige.

    For instance:

    Despite his cleverness at lying and manufacturing convincing reports, there were indicators which gave him away.

    One of these is that over a period of time he became increasingly critical of other people — auditors, C/Ses, public pcs, staff pcs, public students, tech staff, admin staff, his seniors, his juniors, celebrities, businessmen who applied Scientology tech, executives, Set Org staff, Mission staff, field auditors, respected people in a variety of professions (both in and out of Scientology) and, especially, Ethics Officers.

    This built up to a point where staff members around him had only to start really looking at what he was so busy accusing others of to find the clues to what he himself was up to (see HCOB 15 Sept 81, THE CRIMINAL MIND).
    Or this:

    Probably the last thing Miscavige expected was that a Class 4 auditor would find this out tech or, upon finding it, would report it. Fortunately the auditor did report it, applying the HCO PL 22 July 82 KNOWLEDGE REPORTS, to keep Scientology working. LRH then called for more pc folders that Miscavige had been C/Sing and more of the same hideous squirrelling was found. The actions he had taken on these cases were not“errors”. What he'd been doing was deliberately misprogramming and mis-C/Sing the cases of executives in the areas he worked in to try to cave them in and make them think that Scn “didn't work”. Concerning this one particular matter:

    “[It was] an SP use of tech, selectively caving people in.” (LRH)

    This same type of thing was found in quite a few folders that he had been “C/Sing”, and a number of these are described in the HCOB of 28 Sept 82, C/S Series 115, MIXING RUNDOWNS & REPAIRS, written by LRH to correct severe out tech that had been committed (and foisted off on tech staff) by Miscavige.​

    Or this:


    Miscavige directly supervised the delivery and tech quality of a Qual Div in the area he worked in, which was responsible for the auditing and enhancement of some 200 staff.

    By actual survey of their pc folders, these staff had made little or no progress up the Bridge for a period of 3½ years -- the time period that Miscavige was over the area. The following stable datum was given by LRH on this:


    The cases of these staff had been mis-programmed; the auditors had mostly either given up auditing or had been blown off the lines, and those that remained in the Qual Div were found to be running squirrel “pilot” and “repair” processes that had been invented and C/Sed by Miscavige.


    It was found that Miscavige had worked industriously and by various means to make the subject of Scientology Ethics and Justice totally confusing for other Scientologists, hoping to make this LRH technology appear to be unworkable (and thereby even further foul up people's progress up the Bridge.) For example, Miscavige put out falsely signed issues and communications that conflicted one with the other -- such as on the one hand ordering or advising from his post incorrect or overly-harsh ethics actions on certain staff and public, and on the other hand issuing material generally instructing staff to NOT use ethics. It took some doing to get this straightened out and get his off-Source despatches, issues and verbal tech traced down and off the lines.
    Or this:


    Additionally it was found that Miscavige had tried to sabotage the training side of the Bridge
    Or this:


    It was discovered Miscavige had authored a batch of squirrel issues in 1980 and 81 consisting of grossly twisted interpretations of the tech, very misleadingly labelled “Keeping Scientology Working” issues.​

    All of this:


    Instead of carrying out his post duties, Miscavige spent a large part of his time working out various ways to communicate to staffs and public the idea that he was “Source” --- an idea that he had entertained for some time and still does to this day --- whether by getting his name in print, his face featured in promotional pieces or other means. Recently, for example, Miscavige had such delusions of himself as being the “Source of tech” that he was negotiating with a dwindling squirrel group (Riverside, California) to sell them the rights to promote their tech as “Miscavige tech” instead of “L. Ron Hubbard's tech”.

    He is dramatizing megalomanic (defined in the Tech Dictionary as “a person who has delusions of grandeur, wealth, power, etc.”).
    [​IMG]Dianetics and Scientology Technical Dictionary
    Copyright © 1978, 1983 by L. Ron Hubbard ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

    He was trying to set himself up as someone whom others would look to for interpretation of Scientology tech materials, rather than working at getting actual Scientology tech applied by others exactly as written in Source materials.

    “The apparency is somebody's pretence to know from me more than is on the tapes and in books and mimeos, or, brutally, somebody's alter-is of materials. This looks like a ‘hidden data line’. It surely isn't.” (LRH, from HCO PL 16 Apr 65, THE “HIDDEN DATA LINE”)
    Copyright © 1965, 1983 by L. Ron Hubbard ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.


    The above data has been made available to give some idea of what this person was up to. It is not by any means a full and complete account of all his destructive actions.

    There are other HCOBs and HCO PLs written during the past year that give further information on what Miscavige did and the actions that have been taken to handle these messes. These include HCO PL 29 Sept 82, MISREPRESENTATION OF DIANETICS AND SCIENTOLOGY and the HCO PL of 12 Oct 82, CORRUPT ACTIVITIES.


    Miscavige's hat when he was in the employ of the Church was to safeguard and ensure standard application of the tech, and to assist in compilations of LRH technical materials; NOTassume the hat of Source. His expressed intention was to “take over” the hat of the SOURCE of Scientology and Dianetics tech. Such a concept is so outrageous and ridiculous it defies comment.

    Beneath that was a purpose to block the flow of people moving up the Bridge and onto upper levels. The actions that he took to carry out this purpose were not accidental; they were deliberate.

    “Insanity” is defined in HCOB 28 Nov 70, C/S Series 22, PSYCHOSIS (Tech Volume X, page 72). Per this HCOB:


    “Possibly the only frightening thing about it is the cleverness with which it can be hidden.” (LRH)
    Copyright © 1970, 1983 by L. Ron Hubbard ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.


    “Miscavige is a very clever cat. Although he did not succeed in the long run in fooling me he could nevertheless put up a pretty good show. This means that he is a very clever fellow. He showed one face in one direction and quite another face in another direction.” (LRH)

    Further on this same point:

    “The out tech scene perpetrated by Miscavige adds up to a very cunning attempt to block the flow of people up the Bridge. Some people have a horror of anyone getting more powerful than they and people with an unsavory past on the whole track, can become panic stricken. What we have here is a person who faced in one direction with all kinds of reassurances and false reports to cover up his tracks, while, in the other direction total planned destruction was going forward. This definitely raises the point with Miscavige that his own grades are as false as a confederate three dollar bill. One is not likely to benefit from something he is seeking to destroy.” (LRH)

    And insanity has nothing to do with competence or how smart one is:

    “A true psychotic can be brilliant or stupid, competent or incompetent. It is his general motive or purpose that determines whether or not he is insane or sane.

    “Famous psychotics like Napoleon, Ivan the Terrible, Stalin and Hitler were all quite brilliant yet wound up destroying everything in sight including their own people.

    “They had a destructive basic purpose. Every psychotic has one. It is usually covert, hidden, but in full play against his unsuspecting friends.

    “The sole difference in motive is whether it is destructive or constructive.” (LRH, from HCOB 9 May 77, Issue II, PSYCHOSIS, MORE ABOUT, Tech Volume XI, p. 313)
    Copyright © 1977, 1983 by L. Ron Hubbard ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.


    Suppressive Acts are those acts which are “calculated to impede or destroy Scientology or a Scientologist” and “actions or omissions undertaken to knowingly suppress, reduce or impede Scientology or Scientologists.”*

    The following are some of the Suppressive Acts committed by Miscavige, listed here for your information.

    Falsely attributing or falsely representing oneself or others as Source of Scientology or Dianetics technology; or using any position gained with staff and/or public to falsely attribute non-Source material to Source or to falsely represent non-Source material as authorized Scientology or Dianetics technology.

    (Spread lies that he had “invented” various Scientology processes which were in truth developed entirely and completely by Source, not by Miscavige; wrote squirrel programs in pc folders [this was while he was holding a staff position] and sent these to certain orgs, telling the C/Ses at these orgs that the programs and rundowns were from Source, when they were not -- they were completely manufactured by Miscavige by illegally taking bits of one rundown and bits of many other rundowns and mushing them together [results in restimulating different areas all at once without completing the handling of anything and can make a pc think that auditing doesn't work]; and many other incidents similar in nature to the above, intended to make others think that he was “so close to Source that he must be Source”, and gradually bring about circumstances which [he hoped] would culminate in his being able to “take over” this hat altogether and “rule” all of Scientology internationally via tech lines.)

    Falsifying records.

    “Blatantly false reported to a senior C/S concerning the processes that certain pcs were being run on; falsified worksheets in pc folders; placed fabricated case data reports inside of staff members’ pc folders in order to lend credence to out-tech programs that he'd written and put in their folders; made up communications from a senior that never existed and were not written by that person; falsely claimed and received bonuses for “handling public cases”, when in actual fact he misprogrammed them for processes of his own invention and/or an illegal mixture of pieces of different standard rundowns, and other tech personnel had to then repair each of these cases.)

    Organizing a splinter group to use Scientology data or any part of it to distract people from standard Scientology.

    (Promoted using Scientology tech when he has no permission whatsoever to use any of the trademarks or service marks of Scientology applied religious philosophy in the first place, and has already demonstrated that his intentions with regard to Scientology are destructive in that he seeks to use pieces of the tech to tangle up people's cases and confuse people as to the actual Source of Scientology tech, and puts out his own interpretations of the tech with the result of distracting people from Scientology; the group that he has helped to organize to deliver his version of the tech, sent out promotional type material to persons known to be on the communication lines of Scientology Churches and Missions, advertising other practices to distract them from Scientology.)

    Organizing splinter groups to diverge from Scientology practices still calling it Scientology or calling it something else.

    (See above.)

    Unauthorized use of the materials of Dianetics and Scientology.

    (See above.)

    Testifying or giving data against Scientology falsely or in generalities or without personal knowledge of the matters to which one testifies.

    (Spread falsehoods about Church of Scientology activities and personnel, including matters he actually does not have any personal knowledge of but is pretending to; gave out generalities against Scientology including falsely attributing the Source of Scientology technology to himself when in actual fact he is not the Source of any Scientology technology whatsoever. Such a claim is so absurd that it alone shows just how far south he really is.

    Using Scientology (or perverted and alter-ised tech and calling it Scientology) harmfully so as to bring about disrepute to an org, group or Scientology itself.

    (Ran a Qual Bureau which was found to be committing gross auditing errors and running squirrel procedures under his direct supervision, and when asked to correct the out tech, refused to do so; sanctioned [in writing] the squirrel procedures that Kingsley Wimbush had invented, which were admittedly an alteration of standard PTS handling tech, “authorizing” Wimbush's use of these squirrel processes in Scientology Missions when he [Miscavige] had not in fact been granted any such power to “authorize new tech”; released two issues internationally which falsely labelled any use of Scientology Ethics technology as “inval” and “eval” and “not to be done on preclears”, and also claimed that this was based on Source materials when this is the reverse of what is stated in Source materials; directed a number of persons to be put onto an upper OT level whose cases were not yet prepared for a higher Grade or OT level as per standard tech; Miscavige programmed and C/Sed his own folder . (unthinkable per standard tech) for a squirrel “rundown” that he bad made up -- and ordered an auditor, Laurisse “Lou” Stuckenbrock [now Laurisse “Lou” Miscavige], to “audit” on him -- consisting of making a list of the persons he most bated, assessing the list, nattering to the auditor about each person whose name read, and then arranging to have his pc folder sent to the persons on the list for them to see what was written in it, all for the admitted purpose of introverting these persons -- not to mention that the “rundown” Miscavige devised is completely divorced from anything even remotely resembling standard tech.)

    Acts calculated to misuse, invalidate or alter-is legally or in any other way the trademarks and service marks of Dianetics and Scientology.

    (Deliberately mis-C/Sed the auditing of his wife, Michell "Shelly" Miscavage, on a squirrel mixture of Audited NOTs, HRD commands and highly invalidative processes that Miscavage had invented --- all done over the top of a heavy pressing present time problem consisting of the “C/S” [Miscavage] telling the pc between sessions that he planned to marry another staff member, Laurisse “Lou” Stuckenbrock --- with the commands of the “processes” that Miscavage made up and C/Sed to be run on the pc [his wife, Michelle] designed to introvert the pc and convince the pc that she herself was the source of this “2nd dynamic problem” --- and all during this time period, which went on for months, Miscavage saw to it that the pc never went to an Examiner after any session, and kept the pc's folder locked in a file cabinet to ensure that the other tech personnel around would never see the pc folder or discover what was actually going on.)

    Sexual or sexually perverted conduct contrary to the well being or good state of mind of a Scientologist in good standing or under the charge of Scientology such as a student or a preclear.

    (Violated the 2nd dynamic rules of the Church staff codes with Laurisse “Lou” Stuckenbrock, while married to Michelle "Shelly" Miscavage.)

    Issuing alter-ised Scientology technical data or information or instructional or admin procedures calling it Scientology or calling it something else to confuse or deceive people as to the true Source, beliefs and practices of Scientology.

    (Issued verbal tech and squirrel instructions to auditors and broadly published a misdefinition on the State of Clear, causing tech personnel to think that this was Source data and send pcs who had not achieved the State of Clear to attest to Clear, thus jamming these persons’ progress up the Bridge; altered several TRs HCOBs so as to jam the progress of auditor trainees up the Bridge; authored and falsely signed a C/S Series HCOB [C/S Series 114, since cancelled] which was a covert alteration of Source material and was intended to confuse auditors and C/Ses so that they would follow Miscavage's “discoveries” about ethics and neglect the Source material on the subject, thinking that they were following Source material.)

    (Note: There are many other crimes which Miscavage committed, both while on staff in the Church and since his departure, which can be read about in FLAG CONDITIONS ORDER 7138 and in other issues; the above partial list was included here simply to give an idea of the type and magnitude of his destructive actions.)
    When read this way it's textbook.

    I have heard about that. I think that this is really interesting information. Thanks a lot for sharing it here!

    FYI, David "Darth Midget" Miscavige was the "Class IV" in question. If the reports about him being booted off the St. Hill Internship were factual, then D.M. wasn't even a Class IV at the time as one's Provisional Certificate expires after one year, unless the Internship was completed.

    According to David Mayo's own "Debrief", Mayo discovered in early 1981 that Miscavige was intercepting and/or altering communications going "uplines" to Hubbard. Miscavige evidently put false reports about Mayo up to Hubbard to get permission/orders to take Mayo out.

    Which totally proves Scientology doesn't work as presented because Ron said with processing the thetan exteriorized to the point that the body was like a sliver in the thumb with the exteriorized thetan being the thumb...exterior with full perception so why the need of a messenger anyway.

    What's the date on that "Debrief"?

    David Mayo's views changed.

    Hubbard knew much more than was first suspected.

    Mayo sided with the Mission Holders during late 1982 and, at the time, the Mission holders didn't realize that it was Hubbard - hiding behind his CMO "kids" - who was ordering that the Mission holders be crushed and looted.

    People were naïve.

    Most changed.

    I have no doubt that

    the paragraphs:

    " Mayo was simply a bird dog. The definition of a bird dog is: “Somebody sent in by an enemy to mess things up.”* (LRH)

    The actual situation is that you had a bird dog right in the middle of the control room: David Mayo. He was sabotaging execs by wrecking their cases. None of this was by accident or incompetence. Of all the crazy, cock-eyed sabotage I've ever seen, man, he was at it. He was not doing Dn and Scn. He was just calling it that and using the patter. His obvious intention was to wreck all cases of persons who could help others. (LRH)"

    is false, it's not Hubbard's rhetoric style of writing, it's somebody's else's.

    Pretty obvious.

    Hubbard was more or less brain dead at the the time of 1983.

    This statement by Hubbard, made to believe made by Hubbard was not him, it's just quotes by Hubbard out of context. LOL

  8. Veda

    Veda Sponsor

    IIRC, Hubbard C/Sed Annie Broeker on OT 3 in 1983. He could not have been totally "brain dead."

    David Mayo wrote, in 1987, that Hubbard had him kidnaped in late 1982 (through February 1983).

    Mayo added - in a private communication to me - years later, that Hubbard personally C/Sed the torturous process of having him run around a pole in the sweltering heat of the desert. Mayo added that the pole was a telephone pole painted red, and that Hubbard believed that running around a red pole would "cave him in" and destroy him psychologically.

    I'll just re-post this old post for those who think that the "Hubbard didn't know" thesis has serious relevance:

    A few points:

    Hubbard chose to isolate himself. He could have picked up a phone and called David Mayo, or any of the Mission Holders, or written to them, or had them brought to him, or met with them in some other location. He chose not to do so.

    Hubbard, ultimately, controlled his own comm lines. He had his priorities, and the well being of those who had been loyal to him for years, indeed for decades, simply was not that important to him.

    Some additional information:

    From Denise Brennan:

    "There was a real secret body of people directly run by Hubbard."

    From a 1986 interview of Martin Samuels, former Mission Holder, and founder of the Delphian School, from the 'Reflections' chapter of the book, 'L. Ron Hubbard, Messiah or Madman?' :

    "Hubbard operated according to a couple of key patterns.

    The first pattern involved basically decent well intentioned people... no one was able to rise in the organization to a point of any real proximity to him, without being attacked and vilified...

    The next pattern: It's reap and rape. Hubbard would let the reins loose. He'd let people believe they really could get on with it... He'd let people believe they really could prosper to the full extent of their own ability, and enjoy the fruits of their labor.

    And, with that kind of freedom, prosperity does occur, Inevitably, though, he'd come along and rape and pillage and rip off and take what had been produced. The most dramatic example of this was '82, '83, when he 'raped' his most decent people in management along with the mission holders, and looted the entire mission network.

    And look at this pattern... He surrounded himself with absolute hooligans as 'managers'; guys who beat the shit out of people. This man, who 'is this OT, the author of Science of Survival, completely able to predict human behavior', surrounded himself with ruthless people - like Miscavige - who got there because they emulated Hubbard's savagery. They emulated his total willingness to completely break, use, and discard another person.

    And then after their hands were so bloody - and the only reason their hands were bloody was that they were doing what Hubbard wanted - when it finally started to get to the point where it couldn't be tolerated by people anymore, Hubbard wiped them out. Then he said. 'My God! I didn't know!' Scapegoat. He even did that to his own wife, who went to jail in his place..."


    Excerpt from the 1991 David Mayo article on 'Clear':

    "It was PR and marketing considerations that led Hubbard to decide that certain people were 'clear' at a certain point..."

    And from author Russell Miller's interview of David Mayo from August 1986:

    "What worried me was that I saw some things he did and statements he made that showed his intentions were different from what they appeared to be...

    He told me he was obsessed with an insatiable lust for power and money. He said it very emphatically. He thought it wasn't possible to get enough. He didn't say it as if it was a fault, just his frustration that he couldn't get enough."


    And this from Alan Walter, a student on the first Class VIII course, from a 2007 post:

    ...Ron had Julia Salmon thrown overboard... Julia was [in her fifties], terribly overweight, and could not swim.

    The people who threw her overboard struggled to get her over the side; she was terrified; she kept crying out "I cannot swim!" On her way down she hit the side of the ship - I could hear her screams - it was obvious she was injured and drowning.

    The people on the deck all stood around too afraid to do anything. Fearing to originate any action less the become the target of LRHs displeasure.

    I ran and jumped over the side and rescued her. I then pulled her over to the ladder that led up to the ground level of the was about 20 feet straight up. She could not climb the steps. I had my shoulders under her butt pushing her up..... no one still had come to help.......but at the top of that ladder stood LRH filming us.....such evil.......

    Anyway after an immense struggle with Julia's help I was able to push her up to the top of the ladder....finally some help arrived.

    Over the years the unthinkable thought pushed forward more and was 'that I observe that LRH was demonic at that time'. I did not want to know that, did not want to believe that.......that was too incredible to be believed - even for me - I did the usual make nothing of myself....'you're seeing things' 'what do you know' 'you've got overts' - much easier to blame self than confront what is..."

    Has Miscavige watched Hubbard's overboard films? It wouldn't be surprising if he has.


    According to Jesse Prince, from 'The ever changing tech of Scientology':

    "...this bulletin was effectively canceled by LRH himself... that's where it all started. All these actions were taken to increase income. It is the same with the six month sec checks...

    But I want to make it clear that the whole idea came from LRH not from Miscavige. Miscavige is continuing to carry out LRH's orders...

    ...Miscavige is doing his best to forward Command Intention, which is contained in the huge LRH orders database of the INCOMM computer system of Scientology..."

    Both the "Rhythmic [three swings] sweep of the dial at a slow even pace of the needle" [There is an old thread that addresses the 1978 HBOB], and the authorization of six month sec checks, came from Hubbard.


    As a post script, I'll submit this for contemplation, for those who think that Hubbard was "off lines" at the time. The link contains more of the quote.

    From some months ago at Mike Rinder's blog:

    "...LRH directed exactly what was to be done at the Mission Holders Conference in SFO following the one in Clearwater. The whole thing was recorded so it could be sent to him. He listened to it, sent Miscavige and the others commendations and ordered that the entire transcript be published..."

    The San Francisco Mission Holders conference occurred in late 1982, months after David Mayo was kidnapped.

    thanks Veda.

    I'm quite aware of everything you posted, and I agree.

    Maybe I should not have used the words "brain dead".

    But I still think the Executive Directive:

    was not approved by Hubbard. So I guess I'm saying that Executive Directive was not aware by Hubbard, it was written 20 August 83. If we go down to the end of the ED, why it is not signed by LRH but by

    It was not signed by LRH, hence why I said "brain dead", or more accurately unaware of what's going on.

    Obviously Hubbard didn't know some things, but he knew enough.

    Some times Hubbard didn't want to know despite making it appear otherwise, such as the farce of "all mail addressed to me shall be received by me," etc.

    Basically, Hubbard knew what he was really doing, from at least 1938.

    And what he was really doing was not what Scientologists thought he was doing.

    Hubbard routinely lied to, and manipulated, his closest confidants - and he did this his whole life.

    I watched half the video. Janis is a good person.

    Fair Game, Disconnection, and Security Checking were not discontinued in 1968. These were PR handlings. (This has been discussed many times and examined thoroughly).

    (The equivalent of) Fair Game and Disconnection have been part of the "Scientology philosophy" and "tech" since at least 1951. These are an essential part of the "tech."

    The 1966 essay What is Greatness? was cynical PR cover.

    I've read some of Mary Sue's (Paulette Cooper related) telexes. Trust me, she wasn't troubled in the least that Fair Game was being applied. Neither was her husband.
