The Young Rulers of Scientology
4 Dec 83
The young rulers of Scientology, today, are attempting to
defuse the explosive situation that they have created over the
recent years. The Scientology field is disintegrating into
independent factors as never before, and in response, the new
management has decided to "handle this problem".
Oh boy, stand back.
The handling that they have activated consists of a curious
concoction of artificial ARC, forcibly injected into the field,
and elaborate promises of "correcting earlier
No one need be duped by these callous little monsters.
There is truth, which consists of time, place, form, event.
And then there are those strange generalities that are alway
being referred to by the new church management...
The following is some data of exceptional interest. There is
more, much more. You will be receiving new ongoing installments
of this data every week. Look for it. Truth will set you free.
To begin, here, in reality, is
What Your Fees Really Buy
- In early '82, David Miscavige walked into the Yellow Mart
store in downtown Hemet, California. The Yellow Mart is a
nondescript small store in a nondescript small California
valley town. It is located on Florida Avenue, the main
commercial road. David purchased a submachine gun
expressly for Pat Broeker. When later asked why the
purchase of the gun was made, Miscavige replied that it
was for "security reasons". No other
explanation was given.
Anyone wishing to verify this
can do so by going to Hemet and checking the registration
of the weapon. It should be a public access matter. The
store should provide the information.
- In May of '82, a Clipper Ship, with three masts,
full-sized, was constructed on the Church property, near
Hemet, California. This property is actually known as
Gilman Hot Springs and was formerly a golf and health
resort which was purchased by the Church in November of
'78. The cost of building this mock Clipper Ship was over
half a million dollars in materials alone ($565,000). The
labor was Sea Org personnel. It was built as a strange
kind of movie prop, surrounding a swimming pool, which
was to create the effect of an early Clipper Ship, docked
in a polynesian lagoon.
Rather a strange expense, this
construction in the Southern California desert. The
expense of the project was authorized and ordered by
Vickie Aznaran (head of the Inspector General Office of
the Church of Scn), David Miscavige (who has no known
Church position, yet runs the Church), Pat Broeker (also
no known Church position, yet is the force behind the
International Finance Police, and is direct senior to
David Miscavige), Ann Broeker (again, no known Church
position, yet issues random orders into the Church via
Miscavige), Steve Marlowe (current Executive Director of
the RTC) and Marc Yaeger (Current Commanding Officer of
the CMO International).
The amazing Clipper Ship may be viewed by anyone
wishing to do so, by simply driving to Hemet, California,
and going to the Gilman Hot Springs property.
The Church will even offer a tour of the ship to
visitors, upon request.
The purpose of this ship, as originally stated by
Miscavige, is to "entertain VIPs". Yet, the
Gilman Hot Springs property is designated as a Top Secret
Church location, and is the home of RTC, CMO [Commodore's
Messenger Organization] Int, the Watchdog Committee
[WDC], and the Executive Director International, as well
as a personal home of Miscavige, Broeker, Aznaran and
Yaeger. Why, then, is there a VIP tourist attraction
located at a top security location, and why was over a
half million dollars of Church money spent for it?
- On the same property at Gilman Hot Springs, an elaborate
security system was installed. It includes barbed wire,
angled barbed tops, spiked wrought-iron fences,
underground sensors sealed in concrete, and many, many
other devices. The cost of this system was well in excess
of a quarter million dollars for materials, and required
literally thousands of man-hours to complete. There were
numerous sensors that had to be unearthed after it was
found that gophers were eating through the sensors and
setting off the alarms. The system went the entire
perimeter of the North property, and half the perimeter
of the South property. The Gilman Hot Springs property
encompasses 550 acres. There entailed a mammoth task in
digging up these sensors and replacing them. Several
local fence companies were employed to build the outer
perimeter and were paid double, triple and quadruple
wages in order to meet the deadlines imposed by Miscavige
The question is, of course, why was this
elaborate security system built?
To keep those who were out from coming in, or to keep
those who were in from getting out? Or was it built to
satisfy a growing paranoia in those young executives from
their disillusioned congregation?
Regardless, you might wish to drive out there and see
it. And also the multiple guard booths located along the
perimeter of the property, each containing two guards,
uniformed in black shirts, brown pants, weighted clubs,
- During the years '80 through '82, David Miscavige was
spending approximately one thousand dollars per week of
Church funds, under the guise of "security", in
carrying out strange and clandestine meetings with Pat
Broeker. Miscavige, at that time, bragged that he had
eaten at almost every restaurant on La Cienega Blvd. in
Los Angeles, an exclusive "Restaurant Row" in
Concurrently, Pat Broeker was
drawing approximately $2500 per week in order to carry
out his side of the clandestine meetings. This would
involve secret messages left in sleazy truck stops,
hotels and motels, cryptic phone calls with passwords,
notes passed through skid-row hotels. This $2500 was in
addition to one million dollars he had earlier drawn from
This was taken from AOLA [Advanced Org, L.A.] accounts
in increments of $250,000 and $300,000. In the first part
of '81, Broeker asked for another $300,000, which was in
addition to the first million dollars, and said that it
was needed for "operating expenses". When
queried as to what had happened to the first million
dollars, Broeker replied that he still had that money,
but was keeping it "for emergencies". The
Treasury Secretary at Gilman Hot Springs, who disbursed
the money to Miscavige (an older woman named Barry
Lehman), queried Miscavige on the receipts that he was
Barry Lehman said the receipts were not OK and were
not defensible with the IRS. Miscavige then proceeded to
berate and threaten Barry Lehman for questioning his
receipts. Barry never queried the receipts again.
- In '82, Steve Marlowe and Vicki Aznaran retained the
services of a Private Investigator. The Private
Investigator's fees were more than a quarter of a million
dollars. The quarter of a million dollars was spent to
attempt to entrap a Federal Judge that was presiding over
a Florida case in which Marlowe and Aznaran anticipated
an unfavorable ruling. The Private Investigator was hired
and told to do whatever was necessary to get this judge
into any compromising situation that could be used
against him. Either blackmail or any expose whatsoever,
wherein the judge would be subject to censure, was
One aspect of this plan included the hiring
of a 75-foot yacht which was to be equipped with drugs,
women and hidden cameras and microphones. The quarter of
a million dollars was spent, and the private investigator
failed to get a single piece of damaging evidence. This
occurred long after the Church had given sworn testimony
to the fact that the Guardians Office was no longer
engaged in any illegal activities. Both Aznaran and
Marlowe, at the time of the incident, simply wrote it off
as a failed scheme, with no suggestion of remorse over
the fact that the Church had spent an enormous sum of
The D.M. Scam
- In early Spring, 1982, David Miscavige formally left the
Sea Org and resigned from Church employment. He then
became the head of Author Services International (ASI).
ASI is L. Ron Hubbard's private, profit-making
corporation. Shortly after assuming the directorship of
ASI, he began to recruit active Sea Org members for ASI.
The recruits were, in fact, ordered into ASI. These very
key staff members were removed from whatever posts they
held in the Church, and of course, there were no
replacements. They were required to resign from the
Church and were then placed on post in ASI. They were
paid minimum wage and their job responsibilty immediately
became: make money for ASI. Miscavige ordered that the
VFP (Valuable Final Product) for ASI was to be GI (Gross
Among the staff that Miscavige ordered out of
the Sea Org and into ASI are Fran Freedman Harris, Fred
Harris, Vaughan Young, Stacy Young, Jim Isaacson, Joyce
Isaacson, Homer Schomer, Lyman Spurlock, John Busby,
Norman Starkey, Maria Starkey, Julia Watson, Pat Brice,
Terry Gillham, Ron Pook, John Allcock and Neville Potter.
Again, David Miscavige used LRH to front for him. He told
all of these people that they were needed to "help
Today, Miscavige's staff uses Sea Org reserves (as
they have since the inception of ASI) for purposes that
are hidden. It should be noted that they have unlimited
access to the entire 90 million dollars, or more, that
make up the Sea Org reserves.
There were many, many schemes created by Miscavige and
Pat Broeker to drain the Sea Org and Church cash
reserves, always for the purpose of fattening up ASI's
assets. Among these schemes was one presented by Fran
Freedman Harris. It involved the implementation of an
obscure LRH Executive Directive (LRH ED 5) written around
1968. In this ED, L. Ron Hubbard states that every Org in
the world should have 100 copies of all LRH works. In
1968, this was not an impossible order. There were vastly
fewer books, there were few Orgs, and the cost of the
books was nominal. In 1982, the implementing of such an
order amounted to hundreds of thousands of dollars for
each Org. The order included the Technical Volumes, the
OECs... all the materials. In some cases, the order
included obligatory purchasing of Mark VI E-Meters. At
this point, the order became entirely unreal, and it
started to become viewed as an obvious and extreme tactic
to rip off the Orgs. Indeed, it was then observed that
there were very small Orgs throughout the world with less
than 10 staff members each, who could not even afford to
pay their own rent. Fran Freedman then proposed the
extraordinary idea that the big Orgs should loan the
small Orgs the funds necessary to purchase the materials.
The CO CMO (at that time, John Nelson) protested the
absurdity of these orders, but was threatened with
removal from post and public censure, as being "Off-
Source and having CI(counter-intention) to LRH
The entire plan was forced through, at a cost of
millions of dollars to the Church of Scientology.
David Miscavige and Fran Harris subsequently awarded
themselves very large bonuses for their work.
There were other similar cycles. The Orgs were charged
back-royalties, retroactive to 1950, on all LRH works.
Again, all funds went to ASI and the above-mentioned
staff took very large bonuses (as commissions) for these
activities. In those instances where no records could be
found, Fran Harris simply estimated the total figure and
then presented the bill to that Church and ordered
immediate payment. Miscavige always ensured that the
Church paid all of the sums that were demanded by Fran
Harris. After all, he held the purse strings to both ASI
and Church/Sea Org monies. Thus, collecting from the
Church and paying ASI was as simple as transferring funds
from one account to another.
Who Runs the Church?
- All of these dealings enormously depleted Sea Org and
Church Reserves. And, of course, Church prices had to be
raised in order to cover the losses. The public and staff
were the real target and effect-point of it all.
this period, David Miscavige, as well as others on ASI
staff, were all cynically living rather well. And they
were continuing to receive auditing and other services
from Church staff, of course, at no cost. In fact,
Miscavige maintained residences at both Cedars and at
Gilman Hot Springs. Extensive, costly renovations were
done on Miscavige's and other ASI staff members'
accomodations at the expense of the Church, and costing
more than $25,000.
In August and September of 1982, Suzette Hubbard,
LRH's youngest daughter, was ordered to be David
Miscavige's personal maid. She was assigned the cleaning
of Miscavige's quarters at the Cedars complex. This
assignment came after Suzzette and Arthur Hubbard were
thrown out of Gilman Hot Springs by David Miscavige's
wife Shelley, for being "out-security". This
"out-security" was based on the assertion that
both Suzette and Arthur's spouses were not, according to
Miscavige, eligible for the security clearance necessary
to live at Gilman Hot Springs.
This top-security clearance requirement did not apply
to Miscavige, even though it was used against LRH's
children with a strange severity. For in October of 1982,
Miscavige had his entire family flown out from
Philadelphia and had them accommodated at Gilman Hot
Springs. There they received auditing and the best
available services. All of it was done at Church expense.
All of it was ordered by David Miscavige. And, again,
never during this entire period was Miscavige a member of
the Church of Scientology.
- Twenty-year-old David Miscavige assumed control of the
Church of Scientology in June of 1981. His methods were
supremely simple and classic in design. He approached the
then CO CMO, Diane Voegeding, and handed her a despatch,
purportedly written by LRH. It ordered her to step down
and vacate her post. She complied. In fact, the "LRH
despatch" was written by David Miscavige.
then placed Gale Irwin on post as the new CO CMO. Then,
he removed her from post 6 months later. Then, John
Nelson was posted as CO CMO. He was removed and Marc
Yaeger was posted as the CO CMO. Finally, David Miscavige
had achieved control of the Church. There was no one
left, at this point, who would actively oppose him. Marc
Yaeger was, and is, an unquestioning supporter of
Today, at the age of twenty-two, David Miscavige, in
conjunction with Ann and Pat Broeker, is an unrestrained
head of the Church. He has never held a job, or had to
earn a living in the real world, outside the artificial
universe of the Church of Scientology management.
Under Miscavige, Church resources became a somewhat
limitless plaything. He answers to no one. He is not held
accountable to anyone.
Yet, Church legal expenses have soared to a million
dollars a month, with over 76 attorneys across the United
States on the Church's payroll. This is all carefully
justified by Miscavige with briefings he gives to Church
staff and public. He talks of many, many legal victories.
Yet, they do not seem to exist. And there is no end to
the legal arena.
Some members of this army of attorneys have had office
spaces in the Cedars complex in Los Angeles, and have
been given Church staff as their go-fers, as well as
extravagant retainer fees. Some earn approximately
$30,000 a month, as a retainer. Under Miscavige, these
attorneys have effectively assumed a form of control over
certain Church activities. All senior echelon decisions
are first routed through these attorneys before they are
sent out, or executed, and all Broad Public Issues are
sent via the attorneys for their approval, prior to
issue. Church Issue Authority is now handled by the legal
offices of Peterson and Trabish, of Los Angeles. These
offices have become an integral part of Miscavige's
As an aside, when Broeker was once queried on the fact
that Miscavige had essentially been guilty of mutiny,
Broeker's response was that it is only mutiny when you
fail. When you succeed, it should be considered a coup
Miscavige explained the mutinous takeover under the
guise of "doing it for Ron".
In fact, with Diane Voegeding, Gale Irwin and John
Nelson gone, there was no one left who would even
consider opposing Miscavige in any way. Thus, in June of
'82, an enfant terrible was born.
-and yet, much, much more to come.
