The richest Scientologists in the world get a new trophy for donating another pile of cash!

DugganInvictus2

 
The new issue of Impact magazine is out, and the publication — from the international Association of Scientologists — includes this great photograph of Bob and Trish Duggan with their newest piece of hardware from Scientology leader David Miscavige, given to them at the October IAS gala in England. They’ve reached yet another new donation status (which had to be invented for them) — Patron Invictus! And look at that trophy shine!

For our newer readers, we’ll try to explain what’s going on in this picture. You see, Scientology has always been about money. Sure, in the old days, the amounts were more modest, but from the beginning L. Ron Hubbard held out the tantalizing prospect that if you followed his highly regimented and detailed counseling procedures, step by increasingly pricey step you’d get closer and closer to some kind of space opera godhood. In more recent years, the prices for those steps have become hugely expensive, and it can take half a million dollars just in course fees to reach the top of the “Bridge to Total Freedom.” But at least you were working toward that goal.

In the last ten years or so, current church leader David Miscavige has made a big shift when it comes to Scientology and money. He has asked members to give even more cash than ever — but rather than for their spiritual advancement, members are being asked to fork over this money simply for the sake of donating money itself.

And since Scientologists can’t do something without feeling that they’re gaining levels like in some kind of science fiction videogame RPG, the IAS has happy names for “status” levels that you unlock as you climb the donations ladder.

Bob and Trish Duggan, a super-wealthy couple we wrote about at some length in a rather bizarre story earlier, have given so much money, the IAS keeps having to come up with new status names to award them with! And what does Patron Invictus mean? Have they now reached something like $55 million in giving to the IAS? $60 million? We’ll keep working our sources to see if we can get the amount nailed down. (And this is just for donations to the IAS. The Duggans have also given to numerous Scientology building projects around the world.)

As we pointed out earlier, only the Duggans get the privilege of receiving their trophy with David Miscavige himself also in the frame of the picture. (Take that, you lesser whales!) And the occasion also called for some classic bluster from Miscavige’s speech writer, Dan Sherman…

The final presentation was another landmark moment in IAS history for not only was it the climax of the awards ceremony at the 30th IAS Anniversary Patrons Ball, it also marked the unveiling of a brand new IAS Honor Status, Patron Invictus.

Bob and Trish Duggan continue to lead the way as top contributors of the IAS, setting ever-greatest levels of support in their bid to further the purpose of the IAS and achieve the Aims of Scientology.

As Chairman of the Board RTC stated when presenting them with this award: “We come to the outer limits of this evening’s ceremony and an IAS accomplishment of entirely new dimensions.

“The status itself bears the title Invictus, which means ‘unconquerable.’ It is drawn from an LRH pronouncement that reads: ‘No man can stand entirely and completely alone — if he is still a man.’

“This status was specifically created for this night, and even more specifically, for an IAS Patron of legendary renown. And I don’t use that word ‘legendary’ lightly. As a matter of fact, this is the name that triggers a chain reaction like nothing else in our universe. Because this is who we are and what we represent — none other than Bob Duggan, Trish Duggan, and the family in totality — now and forever, the IAS!”

The photo also included three of the Duggan boys…

And the photo came with this caption…

Bob & Trish Duggan with their sons Daniel, Dylan and David, acknowledged by Chairman of the Board RTC with the highest Honor Status in the IAS.

 
(One of the boys we wrote about who was sent to South Africa is in this photo, the other is not.)

We’ve been asked, how does Scientology still have so much money if it’s losing members and is down to something like only 30 to 40 thousand members around the world? Well, if the Duggans have given $55 million just to the IAS, that’s the same as 11,000 less wealthy Scientologists becoming IAS lifetime members at $5,000 each. You begin to see how the whales like Duggan are propping up Miscavige as his organization lurches from one crisis to another.

But hey, there’s a new type of trophy for all those eager collectors out there! Excelsior!

Richie Acunto’s ‘Platinum Meritorious’ trophy taken off eBay

 
PlatinumMeritoriousEnded

 
Speaking of IAS donation trophies, the saga of Richie Acunto’s trophies, sold at auction this past Sunday on eBay, just gets stranger and stranger.

As we detailed in our long story on Acunto, the former millionaire fell so low, he apparently couldn’t pay the rent on a storage unit, which went to auction. Among his things were many of the artifacts of his long time as a high-flying member of the Church of Scientology, including some of his IAS trophies. They went up for sale on eBay, and brought in between about $1,000 and $3,500 each. Three of the most valuable were all swept up by one bidder, who then immediately put one of the trophies — for “Platinum Meritorious” donations of $2.5 million — right back up for sale.

But now, that sale has ended, and with no bidders.

Former church member Karen de la Carriere assured us that Scientology itself would not pay money to end the embarrassment of these trophies being on sale in such a public way.

But now we have some evidence that suggests that’s exactly what happened, and to the tune of about $13,500 in total.

We’re taking a harder look at the evidence we have on that, and we’ll share it if we can get more confirmation. But for now, we suspect that David Miscavige has cut a sizable check to get Richie Acunto’s trophies off the market.

    I looked into Bob Duggan’s site, found an important point in the blog, and it’s something that reflects back on Bob himself, it is advice the world would wish Bob would take himself, and relevant to this thread summary of the money flow history in Scientology.

    This blog excerpt praises correct money spreading ethical behavior, which society would wish Bob himself to do with his wealth!

    “…..Y Combinator has begun to pour its resources into people who care less about making money than about spending it — on public health, microlending and education…..”

    • MaxSpaceman

      it’s a “religion.” the iRs ruled on that 20+ years ago. scientology is as tax exempt as The Methodist Church.

      • allioops

        doesn’t make it a correct ruling….I know many evil and weird “religious” concepts are tax exempt. It is just a pity that my beloved USA has such weak political representatives.

It’s a shopping problem every year, but today I thought, “Hey, where’s Dave’s trophies?”. So I’ve been trophy shopping and I just can’t decide, but I’m seriously leaning toward “Perpetually running around the Toilet Paper Roll Pole man”. Open to suggestions. I’m here in bed all day.

      When you’re worth 2 billion dollars, what is 50 million for Dave? At least in clam town, some one appreciates him. Like his reg and Dave and all the other minions. I doubt that the reg gets the usual 10%, that reg job is reserved for the most loyal minion or some poor Sea Ogre who gets the use of a car and an expense account.

      Finding the upper levels of regdom would be cool. Any ideas on who they are? Who takes care of Travolta and Cruise and the Duggans and the other ‘most able’.

    “We come to the outer limits of this evening’s ceremony and an IAS accomplishment of entirely new dimensions.” What the F does that statement even mean? Too bad the trophy is on a podium. It would have been hilarious to see COB standing next to that trophy with the base on the ground because the trophy and him are almost the same height. It is so sad that so much evil can come from such a petite little man

  • Jefferson Hawkins

    Scientology has gotten to the point where money itself is the entire end game. Miscavige calls this regging of the Duggans “an IAS accomplishment of entirely new dimensions.” The money itself is now an accomplishment, and the IAS doesn’t even have to do anything with it. This is how Scientology manages to hang on despite declining membership, the worst possible public reputation, and a growing public awareness of their fraud and abuse: a few wealthy and fanatic whales prop up the entire corrupt system. I consider these few fat cat enablers to be responsible for the continuing abuse of Sea Org Members, the ruin of countless lives and the destruction of families.

    • Observer

      Even the ones who don’t send their unwanted children to South Africa.

      • MaxSpaceman

        I can give info on two of his adopted children.

        Diamon was born
        Vanyel Raphiel nathaniel Walker. He was my son, and the adoption was
        suppossed to come with pics, updates, and visits. None of which occured
        for very long, and I am still to this day trying to get what was agreed
        upon.

        The second one is Dante, who was born Ian Tylendal Dante
        Hoffecker. He is Diamon’s half brother, as they share the same mother,
        Ada Marie Hoffecker (Born Ada Marie Walker). It was her leaving me to be
        a homeless (redacted since the kids might read this) in Santa Barbara
        that caused the problems which led to me signing the adoption papers to
        the Duggans. When they found out she was pregnant with another child
        during the adoption procedings, they offered to adopt that one too. Not
        meant as a bad thing mind you, I would hate to be misquoted.

        Just
        glad to get this off my chest, and the only reason I created an account
        here. If ya want to ask me more about it, message me on facebook. http://ocmb.xenu.net/ocmb/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=123258&sid=7442dc297c12e900bc2ac702afb63696&start=15

      Good to hear from you Jeff.

      • Guest

        I hope they feel like merde (doubtless because of how easily they can drop off any bothersome child in other countries and their own narcissism). I hope they will be reminded loudly and publicly by countless people of the tangible good that money could have accomplished, such as eliminating the rape test kit backlog in the U.S., building low-cost housing, funding educational scholarships, etc. For the famous and wealthier members, I have zero sympathy. They can easily have access to the info on the cult doings. Ignoring it is a choice.

          exactly! NO ONE especially the celebrites are THAT DUMB that they don’t know ANY OF THIS STUFF IS GOING ON! OR HAVE HEARD “RUMORS” BUT DON’T BELIEVE ANY OF THEM!?!! no celebrity lives in that much of a “their own little world/bubble”!.. even if only 10% of these abuse stories (abuse in every way, emotional, financial, physical, etcetera) were true you would think any celebrity with half a brain would have run and left YEARS AGO!….

    • Jeff it was always and only about money for Elwrong – he just convinced a lot of us that it was about other things.

    • ScientologyDoesNotExist

      There is no scientology, other than a few faux store fronts, a network of shell corporations, and a maze of funneling channels for cash and credit. The day ethics officers and auditors could be bought, Case Supervisors accepted sales quotas, and OT’s signed up for more ashtray yelling, scientology was liquidated, vanished, disappeared. The name remains for legal and tax benefits only. Miscavige banished anyone who might notice long ago. He may be mad, but he’s no fool.

      And I share your opinion of those who have ignored the fact that 90% of their family and friends are gone as if they never mattered.

      • richelieu jr

        It does seem to me that Miscavige is simply running out the clock. He knows the ship is ging down and doesn’t care as long it doesn’t explode until he is either dead and buried or far away and too rich to care… Any attempt to maintain the scam, cultivate new rubes, erm, members, keep current ones moving up the ratwheel, etc have been abandoned like the refuse they were…

  • Observer

    I did no shooping of this whatsoever other than copy/pasting the trophy and drawing a horizontal line along the bottom of Captain Miscavige’s shoe so I could line the trophy up correctly (it appears to be on an acrylic or plexiglass base approximately an inch thick–or else it’s levitating above the lectern). You can see it reaches well above his waist.

    And is it me, or do these trophies keep getting taller? Odd choice for such a diminutive egoist.

    • John Peeler a.k.a. BTs2Free

      A guy in RTC told me this a long time ago, and I have no idea if it’s true or not, but his name was Francis Mazerand. Anyway, he told me that Susie Watson Taylor from ASI was really good friends with Robert Plant and that she told him that Stairway was written about a girl Plant was dating at that time who was a Scientologist. I’d even heard that before Francis told me that, but when I heard it from him it kind of gave me more confirmation. If I ever have the chance to meet Robert, I’m just going to flat out ask him, “So who was the clam bro?”

      • Boy, does that change the meaning of the song for their fans!

      • Ella Raitch

        Was jiust relating this story during a conversation today. There is some connection to the Incredible string Band IIRC.

        • ScientologyDoesNotExist

          Yep

  • aegerprimo

    It took me a while to find it… but I remembered a pic one of the Bunkerites posted of the interior or the Duggan house, and of course we commented on how tacky it was. The tacky trophies are appropriate for them. I continue to find it ironic that the biggest Co$ whale makes money from Big Pharma. What a bunch of frackin’ hypocrites. Just more proof that $cientology is all about making money, it’s founder L Ron Hubbard was only interested in making money, and DM the Tiny Usurper is only interested in making money.
    Eventually the Duggans will fall as hard as Richie Acunto.

    There is a video here of the Duggans receiving a trophy award and in the video is glimpse inside the Duggna home.

      I doubt cancer patients will give a hoot about his wife’s sense of decor if he succeeds in bringing product to market. There are plenty of poor and haughty characters with assets who do good for many, even if profits are the only motivation.

      Having said that, anytime I drive by his place along the beach I lift a finger, just one, and wave. That’s because I think at the very least he could speak up to his fellow sci members he claims to care so much about and dismantle all the Hubbard quackery and educate them on the medical facts about cancer and that chiropractors are not their first, second or any line of defense. I’m sure you have just as many friends as I do who died too young and too horribly for too long. If you’re ever in the neighborhood, I’ll take you for a drive up Gulf Blvd.

      • just really shows how the ‘church’ worships money, as how many poor souls in scientology have suffered through auditing to try to cure them before being diagnosed with advanced cancer and then abandoned….because, you know, they pulled it in….just makes me sick even thinking about it! you could seriously rent out your finger for salutes!!

    I was just watching “Taxi to the Dark Side.” If this is any indication how these guys address such controversial issues, Miscavage has quite a battle to fight with HBO’s Alex Gibney documentary coming out 2015. Few follower are aware of how close Miscavage is to walking away with all their IAS money and real state.

      Welcome! The HBO documentary promises to be quite interesting. Do you think Miscavage is on the way to skipping out of the country with the $?

      I am reminded of the Wall Street fund managers’emails that were leaked revealing the arrogant disdain and opinions of the “fools” who invested in the real estate scam. Tory Christman mentioned just today that Jesse Prince told her how Miscavige laughed about these fool whales no matter what he throws at them. If he has a lick of sense left, he’ll be long gone before they blow out of harbor. Simple math – the whales have 47x more lawyers than he has.

    Alex Gibney and Lawrence Wright produced this, recently posted by a Bunkeroo, well worth posting again. If you have the time or can make it later, the power of the piece is evident and what’s coming up from Gibney is going to really rock the world house. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QodnKx-F2Yo&feature=youtu.be

      I watched it when it was posted the other day. Fascinating!

      • Eivol Ekdal

        I watched it and shared it with my son. He is in uni-studying islamic extremism.
        He said, “Thanks Pops”

      I watched it the other day..”The difference between you and us is, you love life, we love death”

    If I was Duggan, I would totally hold out on the next status for certain favors, like making DM deliver the next IAS speech while sitting on my lap, dressed as an elf. For the next one, he could come over to my house and watch me get really, really drunk and then have to write down anything I might ramble about, then inscribe every word on steel plates before he gets to sleep. I’d make him walk into a Navy recruiter in full SeaArrrgh uniform and try to enlist. He’d have to do anything asked to keep the ship afloat. And every ‘with Honors’ costs a finger.

    Scientology is the only religion that can say “we have more money than God” for two reasons one God to them does not exist and second they are Tax exempt; that allows them to accumulate it in copious quantities and nobody can touch it. NOBODY not even the IRS and sure enough not even God.

    when and ad in craigslist reads:” this ad has expired” does that means the date expired and was never taken down in spite of us flagging it, or it has expired because it was taken down? does anybody knows?

  • After the award presentation at the Patrons Ball, did Bob have the boys play Musical Chairs?

  • Pepper

    There was always a pretty little girl in these trophy photos with blonde hair and dark eyebrows. What happened to her? Now I’m worried.

  • coonellie

    You completely missed my point. I meant that if they had the moola to do the first bit, then they’d have the moola to buy off the rankings and hits to minimize search results

    After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don’t believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr.Brave and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: bravespellcaster@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything.

    Well, I am guilty of buying the metal plaque on Ebay. Pretty cool item.

  • Bob

    I am guilty of buying one of the Stainless steel plaques. It is actually pretty cool to hold a stainless steel item that someone paid a million dollars for. Not to mention the fact there are supposedly thousands in secret vaults. I wonder if the items will go up in price after the coming HBO documentaries.
