Who’s on Post?

December 2, 2009

If you managed to wade through all 180 pages of the latest Impact Magazine, past the gold-stamped cover and the zillions of color photographs of ornate, elaborate and totally empty “Ideal Orgs,” you would have seen something rather disturbing at the back. Disturbing, that is, for anyone familiar with the current Int Management scene.

There is a picture of Guillaume Lesevre. And more jarring than his gaunt and prematurely aging face is the picture’s caption:

“International Scientology Management.”

Not “Executive Director International.”

So is he still ED Int, or not? According to this caption, he isn’t.

Former Int Base insiders say that as of 2004, David Miscavige had removed all of International Management from post, declared them all Suppressive, and was holding them in a room called “SP Hall.” But any such removal from post was hidden from the Scientology field. There were no announcements of post removals at the top of Scientology. There were no announcements of new people appointed to take their place. There were no announcements, period.

It is time for Scientologists to start asking some pointed questions:

1. Is Guillaume Lesevre still ED Int? If so, why not say so in Impact Magazine? Why label him with a generic “International Scientology Management.”

2. If Guillaume was removed from the post of ED Int – when did that happen, and why? And why weren’t Scientologists notified?

3. If Guillaume was removed from ED Int, then who, by name, has been appointed to replace him? And what are that person’s qualifications?

4. Why are senior appointments and dismissals conducted in secrecy?

Ask your local Org these questions. Ask OSA these questions. Write to Int Management, whatever and whoever that is, and ask them.

And, for that matter, ask them who else is on post or off post? David Bloomberg is also pictured, again with the caption “International Scientology Management.” His last known post was Marketing Executive International. Is he still on that post?

And what about Marc Yager? Heber Jentzsch? Ray Mithoff?

Aren’t you a bit tired of not knowing exactly who, by name, holds key posts in Scientology?

    Yes Rebel I asked all these tough questions myself years ago and look where I am now 🙂

    This was the scene or situation as of early 2005 before I left in disgust.

    There is no Org Board posted in the reception area where everyone can see it, giving the names, training level, case level and post title like it says in policy.

    The OIC is no longer posted in HCO where it is visible to staff and public, making it all but impossible to do a doubt formula based on actual stats.

    And as you have written no one has a clue who the Senior Management terminals are, since none of them except for Miscavige are involved in any way in any active management.

    In other words the Orgs are being unmocked from the top down and it is pretty obvious who is doing the unmocking.

    Scientology is suppose to make a person more up tone, being in Present Time, looking peaceful and even brighter looking.
    Guillaume Lesevre definitely doesn’t show any of the above in this picture. He seems being in fear, out of PT and looking really run down and old. It is very obvious that he is just standing there to keep a “good” PR for David Miscavige, but this is a very good Black PR for DM.

    Who is DM fooling? I guess himself.

    My god! Guillaume literally looks like he is dying. So sad to see. Rebel is right these answers to these questions need to be demanded.

    I looked thru the new Impact mag and saw the same thing. None of the “execs” had actual post titles…only captions under the photos saying “Scientology International Management” or “Scientology Office of Special Affairs”.

    I remember writing to ED Int a while back and the response I got shocked me. Not only did the letterhead not have Guillaume’s name at the top like it used to, but there was no signature..just his name typed at the bottom. Not even a stamped signature. I was still “in” and this was a glaring outpoint to me.

    The new publication is a total gloss job. It must have cost a literal fortune to print it. The same thing with a new Flag brochure I got. No doubt, DM has ordered these over the top publications to make it appear as if the church is expanding “like never before”. And I saw that David Pomeranz won the 2009 Freedom Medal Award. When I read the article, it mentioned things David had done back when I was working with him and Peter Schless in 1986. I adore David and he’s done a lot of gigs for the various causes of Scientology, but it sure appears that DM is going after the celebrities to honor in hopes of keeping them “in the fold”.

      Very sad, I worked for ED Int (Lesevre) briefly in 1983, dynamic, vibrant, forgiving, compassionate being with so much intention to do what is right. He’s a skeleton of what he use to be. When my 6 ‘ husband left the RPF, he was 148 lbs, gaunt and unhealthy. Lesevre looks the same, DM can’t cover that up to save his ass in his bullshit PR mags, that who is funding?

    Gold-embossing one’s lies is not slick PR. The lies are still lies.

    Yep. I used to have to write those “noncommittal” captions when I edited the international magazines all the way up to two years ago. No surprise there. These guys would be taken off their MEST work (aka hard labor) and cleaned up to put on an event, then back to post.

    I’m also not surprised to see that so much money is being spent on PR fluff pieces like these magazines, with no real hard facts to back up the claims. I have first-hand knowledge on how much money was spent each month on magazines and other promotion, and I used to be bombarded with letters from Scientologists who were rightfully concerned that they were receiving two, three or more copies of the magazines at their home — a complete waste of funds.

    Yep, it’s all still going on. And until the person dictating these insane policies is stopped, it will continue.

    I would speculate that the picture of Guillaume was published to dead agent the notion that he has disappeared. People have been asking a lot about him on the web. Well, we can now confirm that he is still on staff, but it sure is weird about his post title.

    I flipped through the “book” that I got and I must agree with Sherry here. Seems like if David P was going to get the Medal it should have been like 20 years ago when Issac got his. The Mag was a joke frankly and just an overly glossy attempt to make poop smell like roses.

    I hate those mags with all their lies in them but I hate them more because the high gloss paper that they are printed on isn’t earth friendly and in most cases can’t be recycled. I complained about that before to several different terminals in different orgs and the response I got was “Why would you want to throw it away?” Like I could hang on to every piece of promo and fluff that they send out. I would need a warehouse for all of that. I have told them again and again to just send me things in Email and they continue to pollute by making these mags and things. I thought they were supposed to be expanding on all dynamics?? How can they claim that when they are murdering the 5th Dynamic?

    The important point here is that there are no real “key posts” in international management and this has been true for at least 20 years. Upper management simply strive to implement DM’s policy du jour and then take the fall when the stats don’t rise. That is their only function. It doesn’t really mater which body is in what position. All senior posts lead to demotion, the RPF or a blow. That’s how the system is now set up

    A fundamental of generating any kind of power is the holding a position in space. Of course DM doesn’t really like it when beings can be powerful so he’s got to unmock them.

    Posted yesterday, worth repeating:
    Slightly off-topic, but those who have got the latest 188 page glossy Impact mag, there is the usual generous smattering of photos of Dear Leader (against LRH’s one), but look at his (DM’s) pics on pages 89 and 119. Where is the easy smile? Where has the “cheeky chappy” grin gone? He looks like a guy who is in trouble. Presumably he sanctioned the mag and those images, so I guess those are the best he could muster.

    Seeing Guillaume in an event (I think early this year) was another eye opener for my husband and I. He looked like he was being treated for cancer, it was shocking. That in addition to each award winner separately thanking DM for “the basics” for “keeping the tech pure” etc, made us think “what the heck is going on?” Since when did DM get singled out, and each speech sounded the same with the shout outs at the end as if they were each required to word it like that.

    Ms. Penguin,

    Thanks you are correct.

    I can name you personally at leat 8 -9 people I knew who are dead (from cancer) some of my own bloodline, and they all had a connection of some sort of Miscavige. RIP.

      Barney,
      I have often thought of contacting the media and getting them to test the PAC base for lead, and other carcinogens. I know far too many people that have died from cancer over the years. Many of them life long SO and staff members there at the PAC base. I mean jesus, right across from crew dining, where they built the Universe Corps space used to be the Cobalt room where they did radiation treatments when it used to be a hospital. Every time we would demolish something in Main Building tons of people would be sick. Those buildings are laden with disease and radiation. I fear for the people that work there 24/7 and for the public that get services there as well.

        And depending on when it was built..probably laden with asbestos.

    They (the RPF) took the asbestos all out when it was bought in 77, I know I was there.

      Well there was more in there because we took it out again after 2000. I was there for that as well. Asbestos is the least of the problems with those buildings. There is so much old disease and sick stuffed in to those terra cotta walls it is disgusting.

      You just have to look at the number of people contracting cancer to see that there is something physically there causing it. I don’t believe that that many OT could possibly be PTS.

    To anyone looking for the petition which I promised, please look at my explaination under “the decline continues” article (it’s a couple articles back and I don’t want it to go unread by anyone waiting for the petition). I’m going back and forth on writing it, but if someone else has a clearer picture of how it could help, go for it.

  16. December 12, 2009 4:07 am

    Personally I never thought a petition either per the policy or the other one suggested was a good idea, since the only one reading it in either case will be Miscavige and all he’ll do is sic the dogs of OSA after anyone who signs or individually petitions or file it in circular file G which is his MO for handling anyone who would dare write KR or other form of staff member report on his incompetence.

    Been there, done that.

    However, I wasn’t going to sit here and invalidate the idea, until you demonstrated second thoughts.

    Unfortunately due to neglect the scene has gone beyond this point and one of the only things that seems effective is outright protest PR. Not that I totally agree with anonymous but they do have a point.

    The other thing that has been effective IMHO is having sites like this where we can vent our frustration and itsa about the actual scene, instead of buy into the PR.

    The internet has become the new samizdat press against the totalitarian regime that occupies the Church right now.

    Rebel008,

    Your post dated Nov4th 2009, you posted this: LRH defined a true friend in these terms: “What a true friend does. For one thing they stand up for one, give him council, they help him in adversity, they safeguard his reputation, won’t hear ill of him, share his triumphs, ignore his faults.”

    Please let me know what reference and date is this from? Also, I believe the word “Council” should read “Counsel” in the above quote.

    BTW, I sent you 2 e-mail regarding the above question but never had a response. Did you get my e-mails?

    Please help!!!

    Re: Group Petition to oust DM.

    Look at HCO PL Petitions, this is illegal it can’t be done. And we all know this will never work.

    The way to go is Litigation against this individual solely, and not the C of S. I hope others understand and get it.

    I saw Heber about a a year ago as he was leaving the Anthony building. He looked hunted and literally scurried away. I noticed him and and he noticed me noticing, he was introverted gave a brief sickley smile and left. No one around there seem to notice him or appeared to know who he even was. I was stunned. What in the world happened and why was he in the Anthony building? This is common birthing. I was picking up my son, who is in the SO, and was there to see this. He has been in the SO for 6 years, at that time. When I pointed Heber out he did not know who he was. I was again stunned. How can someone be in the SO for 6 years and not know who Heber Jentz is? It was a surreal moment.
