Some recent media from Ireland. Still reaping the rewards of making up stories to tell the faithful about how wonderful things are “over there” (everywhere except where you are)….
I bet Dear Leader just loves having his photo in articles like this all over the world. And particularly enjoys being identified as worldwide leader of a cult. Not exactly the positioning he is shooting for. He’s got “Pope” in HIS mind, not David Koresh.
Perhaps you should stop telling lies Dave? Nobody is going to bother with stories like this if you don’t give them something to write about.
If you have difficulty reading this, one of our Irish correspondents was so kind as to retype it:
The Scientologists in Dublin got a strong pat on the back earlier this year when the leader of the worldwide cult singled the Irish mission out for particular praise. However, all is not well this side of the Atlantic and the sheriff looked to be heading to Middle Abbey Street at one stage.
Speaking in a New Year’s message to Scientologists at a large conference in Florida, David Miscavige said that the Irish mission was carrying out excellent work. He listed the services provided at the Scientologists’ HQ on Dublin’s Middle Abbey Street, such as ‘Life Improvement’ and ‘Personal Efficiency’. A video clip of an interview with a Scientologist on the Ocean FM radio station in Sligo was also shown in Florida, although the station management subsequently issued a statement on their website stating that the station shown was not theirs and that the ‘presenter’ shown conducting the interview ‘is not known to anyone at Ocean’.
Miscavige attributed quite remarkable achievements to the Dublin operation, claiming that the mission had ‘accomplished an 85% drop in drug-related crime’ before quoting an unnamed county councillor who apparently said: ‘You set a shining example. You have effective solutions and are dedicated to improving the lives of others.’
Maybe the directors of the Dublin mission – who include Gerard and Siobhan Ryan – have been paying too much attention to improving the lives of others and overlooked some pressing matters. Last month, an execution order was issued to the Dublin City Sheriff by the Circuit Court on foot of a judgment awarded to the landlords of 64 Middle Abbey Street – DMZ Properties Ltd. The judgment was obtained in default of any appearance from the cash-strapped Church of Scientology Dublin Mission Ltd (CSDM) and was for just under €12,000. The execution order means the sheriff could seize goods and equipment from the offices to the value of €12,000, although this setback looks unlikely to get a mention in Miscavige’s next motivational speech to the faithful. The good news is that the Scientologists told Goldhawk that the matter has just been ‘amicably resolved’.
The last accounts for CSDM only cover the year to April 2010 and show accumulated losses of €690,000. Someone who may be interested in the judgment will be Kevin Stevenson, who is currently suing the Scientologists here for €100,000, alleging fraud, misrepresentation, undue influence and infliction of emotional suffering.

The Irish Police (Garda) Commissioners Office is also investigating the use of it’s official shield image in the video at 6:10. It implies endorsement of the misrepresentation and fraud.
Yup, Miscavige’s patronising fairy-tales of Ireland and the Irish come back to lash him. His speech events resemble the glossy, over-illustrated children’s storybooks targeted to impress the purchaser.
Patrick Gallagher says
At 6:10 in the video they endorse their fraud using the official shield of the Irish Police Force (An Garda).
The Garda Commissioner’s Office is investigating the misuse of their symbol and footage of an on-duty policeman. Undoubtedly they were unaware that the footage would be used to add weight to the deception and fraud internationally. I’d imagine that the Gardai will insist that their implied endorsement will be removed as this makes them party to a misrepresentation and fraud. They are, however, thankful for the 85% reduction in drug related crime…
Perhaps if members of Int “Management would distribute copies of The Way to Happiness booklets to each other, there would be a drop in crime emanating from that area…..meaning fewer lies, less off policy and less out tech being disseminated to Scientologists.
Try it, David Miscavige. Set an example. Try restraining yourself from telling harmful lies to others. Try treating others as you would like to be treated. This is indeed “lost” tech……at least it is to you . You probably think that it is just for “other people”.
What a supurb idea, Espiritu. I doubt though that DM has even done Learning How to Learn and is probably blew the book quite early on. Set a Good Example chapter 6 and following that is Seek to Live with Truth. Unfortunately, Do Not Steal is a way on so he missed out completely on this one.

Sounds like your average journalist or official are managing present time very well, despite the absence of several sets of objectives.
So – who’s paying to keep the Dublin Mission afloat?
And is this just the tip of the proverbial iceberg – are there OTHER missions and orgs that are being kept on life support by ‘mysterious benefactors” paying the bills?
Fail cult is fail – and the world is catching on. The Runt Usurper will be chewing on His glasses of Scotch with a vengeance tonight.
The Chartwell Mission in Johannesburg, South Africa, is barely making it. I believe it’s hanging in there barely functioning.
I don’t know who’s funding it but it is on the premises of a business owner who is also the ED. The business is probably paying for its utilities – this is my opinion only, please note.
Oh, the hyperbole! The other day I happened to hear about the views of some folks (“wogs”) in Hemet. I asked what the locals / non-Scientologists thought of the Scientology facilities.
The comments were telling. First, they thought Scientology was weird. They didn’t know much about it other than Tom Cruise and some kind of belief about aliens. They believed you could not join Scientology except by invitation. They thought that one building looked like a castle, and that there was a structure the locals thought looked like an ark (maybe that was the castle too). So they had connected the dots, probably wrongly, that the “ark” was there to help people escape some coming calamity.
They also knew very clearly that visitors were not welcome. I guess that if Flag is the friendliest place on Earth, Scientology headquarters seems to have the rep of being the least friendly.
Heck, if I were Miscavige, I’d be out in the community and welcoming the community to come visit. But I guess you can’t get that relaxed when you “know” the world is a sea of CIMFCSs. And if even INT is filled with such people, you sure don’t want to open the gates and let them have a chance to flee hell.
The Mission in Dublin has been in severe financial straits for many years, and at times in the past went begging for donations from other missions around the world to help keep it afloat. It is in the same tiny office it has been in for years, which, the last time I saw it, was truly depressing to even be in. This reality does not fit well with the false claims of 85% drop in crime and other Kool-Aid world hype Miscavige was peddling about it. Dublin mission is not a place to hold up as a shining example, if anything it is more a place to feel shame about, but I suspect that really Miscavige, while exploiting the mission with his event fiction, secretly hates them and considers them DBs. That’s how cynical this all is.
You can bet your life he secretly hates them, SSA, Ireland doesn’t send him any money: one either makes money or one is a DB.

You are “pulling it in” as you would say.
Idle Morgue says
Thank you for exposing this information.
Here are more clips about the lying Leader of Scientology:
I am so glad this is getting exposed and I hope the lurkers think long and hard about what else is Miscavige lying about.
He is getting bolder with the lies.
The end is near for the cult!
One pub becomes “pubs”, one book shop becomes “bookshops”.
€12,000 = approximately $24,000.00
€690,000 = approximately $946, 500.00
Boy, this really made me laugh. ja, ja, ja. The leader of the worldwide cult. Perfectly stated.
Oh, and another headache for OSA and Co., another lawsuit for fraud.
It does suck to be Miscavige.
Mike – “Perhaps you should stop telling lies Dave? Nobody is going to bother with stories like this if you don’t give them something to write about.”
He is in such a state of unreality – case in point, imagining that he is the “Pope” of Scientology – that the only truth he knows or is aware of is the fantasy that he creates himself. Where does that put his sphere of awareness/influence? 3 inches inside his head.
He CAN’T tell the truth because, as a true psychotic, he isn’t AWARE of what the truth is.
…unless it suits him, of course.
He is delusional and there is a scale of awareness where delusion is one of the rungs. So at that level, he doesn’t know what the truth is.

Why, that would be an excellent slide for the Next Biggest-Ever-Ever-Ev-Ar Event that You Don’t Want To Miss! Hmm, it’s April – what is the next one, anyway? May 9th, or does He bother with Dianetics anymore? Maiden Voyage is barely a month after that… but that got cancelled last year.
I guess this big-fuckin’-event every other month thing is wearing out His Big Beingness, Chairman of the Board Religious Technology Center Mr. David Miscavige. The bi-monthly reg-fests are certainly wearing out what’s left of His cash cows. Moo.
That sure is a heaping bucketful of entheta. Methinks the merchants of chaos are a lot joking and degrading these days. Why don’t they “help others” instead? LOL!
Well,well, well, heads will roll for this one. But it won’t be Der Leader or the Sherminator. The Hole will be getting more tenants .
Mike Leopold says
Those wee facts are indeed stubborn things, eh, Dave?
When Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, ’tis like the morn in Spring.
In the lilt of Irish laughter
You can hear the angels sing.
When Irish hearts are happy,
All the world seems bright and gay.
And when Irish eyes are smiling,
Sure, they steal your heart away.
I heard bagpipes as I read this. I dunno who you are MJ, but I know I like you.
Aye, me laddie.
at first glance that could be mistaken for a positive piece. someone should circulate it on the “buzzline” some bubblized folk might stop to read it.
That has got to be a new low. Fake stats are one thing but straight up fabricated media interviews and quotes from “unnamed” nonexistent officials!? Just no shame at all. At this point why even bother? DM should make like a good conman and disappear to a third world country with his ill gotten loot.
Rick Mycroft says
It’s not really new. I recall there was presentation years back that caused a minor flap. This time, he made it a highlighted item in his speech, the video got out right away and up on the net, and the local media made it an item that spread due to RCS’s higher profile these days. (Not a higher profile for good reason, mind you.)
