SHELLY SPEAKS: Scientology Leader’s Banished Wife Says She’ll Get Out “Only One Way”

Reblogged from The Underground Bunker:

One of the most intriguing mysteries of the Church of Scientology is the disappearance of Shelly Miscavige, wife of the church’s leader, David Miscavige. A frequent refrain heard from critics of the church is “Where’s Shelly?” — and that question is also central to the recent defection of Leah Remini, who began to break away from the church when she didn’t get a satisfactory answer.

For daring to write up the leader of the church, Remini was ordered to go to “Flag,” the spiritual headquarters of Scientology in Clearwater, Florida. Thinking she was going to advance her case on the “Bridge,” instead she was subjected to three months of sec-checking — a brutal form of interrogation — and “The Truth Rundown,” an Orwellian practice of thought reform. As a result, she was convinced to rescind her reports about the wedding.

*****
Orwellian Thought Reform program for anyone who dares to think for themselves and ask questions about David Miscavige, the Supreme Ruler for life of the Church Cult of Scientology Inc.

Well, Chairman Mao Miscavige, This inconvenient truth about your wife is not going to go away.

UPDATE

Mike Rinder weighed in tonight with more excellent analysis of the Shelly Miscavige tragedy. He explains in laymans terms the mind f*cking that goes on in the Cult of Scientology.

It is highly unlikely after this amount of time that even if someone could talk to her that she would say she wants to leave. Typical for this situation, she has been indoctrinated since early childhood to believe that whatever circumstances she finds herself in are HER DOING. That she is responsible for being sent away to live in purgatory for years, and that only when SHE has resolved HER own transgressions will all be well. And of course, part of that in her mind is convincing herself she no longer wants to leave — it is the first step “I must be getting my overts off as I no longer want to leave.”

Vanity Fair | What happened to the woman who came before Katie Holmes in Tom Cruise’s life? Our shocking Scientology exposé here

By Alo Ceballos/Filmmagic (Holmes); by Barnaby Hall/Getty Images (Man)

At the end of each of the auditing sessions, which covered Cruise’s entire life, Rathbun would give a written report to Miscavige, who, according to Claire Headley, also received the videotapes, which she says she observed being delivered to him

Why can’t David Miscavige stay out of Tom Cruise’s relationships with women?

Reblogged from Moving On Up a Little Higher:

As Scientology Inc. (the church of Scientology) has so idiotically already spread all over the comments section at Vanity Fair, Nazanin Boniadi is a good friend of mine. Naz is a courageous woman who was ruthlessly exploited by David Miscavige and Tom Cruise several years ago. Because of the nature of the bond of trust I share with Naz, there is not much I can share with you about her. But, since her name and a version of her story are about to go viral, there is something that people ought to know about Naz. For years, Naz has known that she could make international headlines and perhaps forward her fledgling acting career by blowing the whistle on Tom Cruise and his bff David Miscavige. But, Naz chose not to do so. She wanted to be judged only by the merits of her skills and abilities. Instead, she intelligently decided on more quiet and effective means she could apply to effectuate change in the monstrous institution that so inhumanely attempted to exploit her and others. Naz quietly and dedicatedly went about establishing a career powered and supported only by the quality of her talent. She found time also to forward the cause of effectively taming the beast. On a personal level, in four short years she became a well-employed actor and recognized, effective human rights activist.

David Miscavige and Tom Cruise took measures to prevent Naz from achieving any noteriety – for obvious reasons. But, Naz was undeterred. She made it in spite of Tom Cruise and David Miscavige.

Stop Human Trafficking by the Sea Organization

This is the story of one of the women who was nefariously recruited into a program of pimping and human trafficking by Scientology’s soldier/priests of the Sea Organization.

Katie Holmes, Tom Cruise and David Miscavige. Miscavige is the Supreme Ruler of the Sea Organization

Humanitarian ?

Tom Cruise is the only winner ever of the International Association of Scientologists (IAS) Freedom Medal of Valor. This video was played at the awards ceremony.

Tom Cruise is presented the IAS Freedom Medal of Valor by Scientology Chairman of the Board David Miscavige.

Actual Humanitarian

As an official spokesperson for Amnesty International USA (AIUSA) since 2009, British-Iranian actress and activist Nazanin Boniadi has worked at a grassroots level and has also appeared on international TV and radio programs to campaign for the rights of disenfranchised populations across the world. In particular, Nazanin has been very involved in bringing attention to the unjust conviction and treatment of Iranian youth, women and prisoner’s of conscience.

“Tom Cruise Worships David Miscavige Like a God”: A Scientology Insider Gives First Full-Length Interview to the Voice

Reblogged from the Village Voice:

I’ve spoken to John Brousseau numerous times over the past couple of years. In 2011, I reported about the photographs he smuggled out of Scientology’s International Base east of Los Angeles which documented the work he did customizing a motorcycle, a Ford Excursion, and an airplane hangar for Tom Cruise while working for pennies an hour as a member of Scientology’s “Sea Org.”

More recently, it was Brousseau who helped me understand why Sea Org members believe that Scientology leader David Miscavige’s wife Shelly was “disappeared” to a secret base in the mountains above Los Angeles.

But until now, I’ve never told Brousseau’s entire story as a 32-year member of Scientology and the last person to escape from the International Base who is talking publicly about it.

Part Two:

Whistle-blowers who have escaped the Sea Organization’s prison camp near Hemet, CA report that Tom Cruise is well aware of the fact that Sea Organization slave labor has been employed to overhaul his house on Alpine Drive in Beverly Hills, customize his Bluebird mobile home, build out his airplane hangar at Burbank Airport and other various tasks.

How is servicing Tom Cruise salvaging this sector of the galaxy?

Tom Cruise Gets Visitation Rights? Why Don’t We, Ask Ex-Scientologists Cut Off From Family Members

Reblogged from the Village Voice:

Fans of Katie Holmes are celebrating that she seemed to get just about everything she wanted in her divorce settlement with Tom Cruise — reportedly, she’s getting primary custody of Suri, and Tom will get visitation rights. And with Katie registering with a Catholic Church in Manhattan, it’s a good bet that Suri will be shielded from her father’s controversial religion, Scientology.

So if Katie seems to have won, and in the process brought Scientology unprecedented bad publicity, why are some Ex-Scientologists greeting news of the divorce settlement with derision?

Because of its hypocrisy, they tell me.
