Why is there no President of Church of Scientology International?
Heber Jentzsch, after being “disappeared” years ago is now represented as being “retired” — but there is no new President. In fact, there isn’t even a spokesman, let alone a President (who is supposed to be the lead spokesperson). Heber, once a very public figure, is no longer seen outside of the razor wire topped fence of Golden Era Productions. I last saw him in late 2006 in the Hole. Sleeping on the floor and eating slop, guarded 24 hours a day.
Who is the Executive Director International?
Guillaume Lesevre held this position for many, many years. He too has been vanished from the scene. The position of Executive Director International was established by L. Ron Hubbard — in fact, this post was specifically denominated by him as the “missing hat” that he had always worn to run scientology. He said the lack of this post being held is what kept him from being able to do his “further research at the top of the bridge. It was that vital. There is a lengthy policy describing the duties of this position. And the famous LRHED 339R is all about the ED International and his team of “Senior Executives” (“Exec Ints”) that are supposed to direct the scientology empire to take over the world. None of those people exist either. Again, I last saw Guillaume and his Exec Ints in the Hole. (As a reader pointed out, I did catch sight of Guillaume when he participated in the parking lot ambush in Clearwater in 2010). Greg and Debbie Hughes escaped the Sea Org but were paid off for their silence. Everyone else is still there as far as I can tell.
The Senior C/s International?
Ray Mithoff, Hubbard’s personal auditor at the end of his life is nowhere to be seen. Mithoff, despite being given the role of continuing to “protect the tech” by Hubbard himself was also in The Hole. There is no Snr C/S Int today. All “tech” development and research is now done by the True Leader. Ray Mithoff is a Class XII C/S, the highest level of training there is in scientology. True Leader? Nobody is quite sure if he is a Permanent Class IV auditor or not, though it appears he may not have completed the internship. Either way, he is the scientology equivalent of a high school graduate while Mithoff has a Doctorate degree. Why is Miscavige inventing and announcing new tech instead of the senior technical terminal?
Another position specifically created by Hubbard to “take over his hat”. Marc Yager held this position off and on for decades. No longer visible, no longer on post. Nobody else is holding the position. Yager also last known to be in the Hole.
Greg Wilhere was the last to hold this position. Again, vanished from the scene and NO Inspector General on post (another position mandated by Hubbard). There are no Deputy Inspector Generals either.
The other person in the photo above, Captain Morgan Norman Starkey, was formerly Captain of the Apollo, the head of Hubbard’s literary agency, Author Services and then the Executor of Hubbard’s Estate. He was also hand chosen by True Leader to be the minister for the “wedding of the century” — though he got drunk and hit on Brooke Shields. He was then returned to The Hole in disgrace. Apparently he remains there to this day.
The command structure of scientology that Hubbard established has been destroyed by True Leader. These people were not really “public figures” until Miscavige began putting them in his “international events”. There was no such thing when Hubbard was around, but in the late 80’s Miscavige began holding these events as the means of controlling the flow of information to the scientology world. Initially, he was the Master of Ceremonies and introduced the other speakers — many of them the names listed above. Before those events, the scientology world was not aware of the people that held the positions at the top of the scientology hierarchy. Phyll Stevens, Kerry Gleeson, Tony Dunleavy, Jill Carlstrom, Dede Voegeding, Terri Gamboa and many others came and went without anyone outside of the top echelons of the Sea Org really noticing.
Why doesn’t anybody in scientology notice these missing executives? If the College of Cardinals all vanished, a lot of Catholics that would be asking questions and demanding answers. It is a measure of the cult-think and control in scientology that nobody dares ask such questions. They know it would results in them being sent to “ethics” where they would have to pay for a mandatory sec check interrogation.
But there is another question — why has the senior management echelon of scientology been dismantled? Hubbard constantly railed about how the problems with scientology expansion lay at the feet of incompetent management. They are no longer incompetent, they are now non-existent. The reason for this is because Miscavige fears every one of these people is a potential threat to his position.
Anyone who is popular with the public (like Heber Jentzsch) or has established a measure of respect with internal management (like Guillaume Lesevre) or is seen to be a “tech” opinion leader (Ray Mithoff), or someone who could step up and really persuade people that True Leader has gone rogue (Shelly Miscavige) — all of them, and many others, had to be neutralized so they presented no threat. Most ended up in The Hole.
The trail of dead bodies strewn in the path of Miscavige clawing his way to undisputed True Leader of scientology is lengthy. He began with the original RTC executives and David Mayo, through the Broekers and anyone aligned with them and ultimately to the entire international hierarchy of Scientology. And apparently nobody notices.
You have to hand it to him. He is a master of self-promotion and control. A true sociopath who has risen to the top on the backs of those who supported him and the were destroyed by him. Today he stands alone as the “only one” in scientology. The self-proclaimed True Leader.
