Jenna Miscavige Hill on her uncle spying on her grandfather: The arrogance is astonishing

SEE ALSO: ‘LET HIM DIE’: Our initial post on the Powells, with Dwayne Powell’s indictment and court docket
SEE ALSO: Read the police report on the spies who kept tabs on the father of Scientology’s leader

On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Times reported the news that spies allegedly hired by Scientology leader David Miscavige to follow his own father, Ron Miscavige Sr., were arrested in 2013 and, facing a felony over an illegal silencer, spilled their guts about their assignment.

Dwayne Scott Powell told West Allis, Wisc. police that at one time, while he and his son were being paid $10,000 a week to follow Ron Sr., the 79-year-old man was in a Walmart parking lot when he clutched his chest like he was having a heart attack. Calling in for instructions, Powell said David Miscavige himself got on the line. “David told him that if it was Ron’s time to die, to let him die and not intervene in any way,” the police report states.

That stunning callousness is lighting up the media, and we thought it would be interesting to hear from David Miscavige’s niece, Jenna Miscavige Hill. In 2013, Jenna wrote an explosive account of her years in the church, Beyond Belief: My Secret Life Inside Scientology and My Harrowing Escape. Here’s what we said about it at the time: “Behind it all is one rather diminutive man, David Miscavige, who comes off as a meddling, tyrannical, but ultimately cowardly man who Jenna and other ex-Scientologists are determined to expose.”

We asked Jenna, what does she think about this new astonishing story, with her uncle spending so much money to surveil her grandfather, who escaped from Scientology’s secretive International Base in the summer of 2012?

Jenna tells us she knew about the arrest and what was in the police report, but hasn’t talked publicly about it — until now. Here’s what she sent us…

I heard about this when it was happening, but didn’t talk about it at the request of my family. When people leave the church it often takes time to organize their thoughts and reexamine their lives and everything they have been through. The Church has an uncanny knack for antagonizing people who just want to live in peace.

The arrogance it takes to pull off a scheme like this is astonishing, especially after all of the books that have been written, suits that have been filed, and the media exposes that have blasted the church in recent years.

I seriously cannot fathom the mindset of someone who could do this type of thing to his own father. How big must the skeletons in his closet be to cause this level of paranoia on my uncle’s part? Especially since we already know about the beatings, the imprisonment, child abuse, destruction of families and the list goes on.

This recklessness will continue to be the church’s downfall.

Years ago when I first spoke out, I couldn’t speak to my grandpa, my in-laws were being forced to disconnect from us, and stories that I spent hours recounting to reporters would rarely be heard.

Years later things have completely changed. I can now call my Grandpa whenever I feel like it, I have a wonderful relationship with my in-laws, 1.7 million viewers just watched Going Clear on HBO and my own book is on the New York Times bestseller list this week.

That change lies squarely on the back of those who have been brave enough to speak out about their experiences and those who have given them a platform to do so.

Thank you for that, Jenna. Please visit our earlier story about the private investigators, which includes the indictment of Powell for the illegal silencer, an image of the weapon type he was carrying, and more information about his background.

 
UPDATE: Great report just now on the Today show this morning. They have audio of Dwayne Scott Powell and his son taken by the West Allis, Wisc. police and you can hear in their own words how they were told by David Miscavige not to intervene if Ron was having a heart attack. And Scientology’s flat-out denials sound really bad after hearing these PIs in their own words. No question who sounds more credible.

UPDATE: We asked attorney Scott Pilutik for some initial thoughts about the legal ramifications of this stunning story. Could David Miscavige face charges? Could this incident threaten Scientology’s tax exempt status as a church? Here’s what he sent us…

For the sake of the IRS exemption, I’m not sure this is any more or less of a threat than the hundred or so other instances they’ve been caught employing PIs to ends seemingly at odds with the IRS’s “religious purpose” requirement. Maybe it’s different this time? Well, there’s a police report, which renders Scientology’s plausible deniability response somewhat sillier than usual. But the criminal conduct alleged in the report falls short, I think, of directly connecting to the scope of his employment by Scientology. He claimed the guns were for sport, and I’m having difficulty imagining a scenario whereby Scientology leaves a paper trail between itself and a contract killer doubling as its PI. Granted, the PI would be an idiot to compound his culpability by admitting the guns were related to his Scientology assignment, but he’d hardly be the first ex-cop PI with a gun fetish, and I think that’s the more sensible interpretation.

Certainly there’s a moral repugnancy to all this, but the law imposes no duty on anyone to intervene on behalf of a person having a heart attack, nor does it distinguish between family members and non-members. It should go without saying that where a religious nonprofit spends hundreds of thousands of dollars to investigate its perceived enemies, their exemption should be revoked. Perhaps this revelation occurring so near the tidal wave of publicity triggered by Going Clear shames the IRS to take a closer look at the havoc they wrought.

 
UPDATE: We want to draw a distinction about Scientology surveillance tactics that we learned about when we talked to two of the church’s master spies for a story in 2012. Paul Marrick helped us understand that Scientology has two very different ways of following people.

On the one hand, Scientology is notorious for “noisy investigations.” The chief figure for this kind of operation right now is an investigator named David Lubow. When Lubow is following you, you know it. That’s his job. He starts calling everyone you’ve ever worked with, he targets the people you work for, he looks up your relatives, and he starts showing up at their places of work or at their homes. It was Lubow who showed up a couple of times at my mother’s house, which I revealed in Alex Gibney’s film, Going Clear. And it was Lubow who ran the “Squirrel Busters” operation against Marty Rathbun in Texas. The point of a Lubow noisy investigation is psychological. His intrusive, harassing method is intended to make you paranoid and worry that your life will become untenable, that your world will fall apart. Lubow and others employ teams of private investigators to follow and swarm people like Mike Rinder and Tom DeVocht, and again the point is, they want to be seen. They want you worried about being followed.

But Marrick explained to me that Scientology has an entirely different kind of approach to surveillance that is the diametrical opposite to a Dave Lubow noisy investigation. Marrick and his partner Greg Arnold were paid to be ghosts. For 24 years they trailed Pat Broeker, a former Scientology executive, all over the world. They would rent houses next door to Broeker, using a woman to make it look like a couple lived there. In other places they planted themselves far away with telephoto lenses to watch Broeker from a great distance so that he didn’t know he was being watched. And every day, sometimes hourly, they would call in to their handler to report Broeker’s movements. Marrick and Arnold would sometimes get very close to Broeker — at one point, Arnold told me, he got crucial information by sitting at the next table at an Applebee’s restaurant and eavesdropping on Broeker. But always, they did not want to be recognized, and they did not want Broeker to realize that they were following him.

Clearly, it seems to us, the Powell operation on Ron Miscavige Sr was of this second type. Powell and his son were probably told to keep an eye on Ron and do their best not for Ron to realize what was going on. And that’s why, when Ron clutched at his chest one day, Powell faced a dilemma. If he called 911 or rushed over to help Ron, it would blow that cover that he was told to protect. So he called his handler asking for instructions. Then, he told police, David Miscavige himself called him back and told him not to interfere, to “let him die” even if Ron was in cardiac arrest. We think this is the situation, and we’ll be looking to get more information soon.

 
Great report this morning on the Today show, with audio of the private investigators…

 

 
UPDATE: TMZ has posted a portion of the audiotaped interview of private investigators Dwayne Powell and his son Daniel with the West Allis, Wisc. police. In this portion, Daniel says that they joke about their $10,000 a week salary being funded by Tom Cruise. And that when his latest movie bombed (in 2013? Oblivion?) they joked that they needed to tell people how great it was so they’d go see it so Tom could get paid and then the PIs could get paid…

    OT: watching msnbc to see spying scibot story and the video of the cop shooting the guy in the back 8 times. Thank dog that good samaritan was filming on the downlow.

    • Snake Plissken

      I just watched that video on youtube and the majority of the comments were people whining about the guy holding his cell phone vertical while he filmed the clip and how many innocent White people are going to be killed because of this murder, very little discussion about the man who was just murdered, other than he shouldn’t have been running from the police … no wonder it’s taking so long to get 100,000 signatures to have the cult’s tax exempt status investigated.

              Jolly Boys are so fucking great. They are so old that they got their name from Errol Flynn.!

              I listened to the whole album about 30 times before I even realized they were all covers. It was really great to see them have worldwide success after such a long time.

              The video of Iggy doing it is hilarious.
              They carry him out on stage, but he nails it.
              At one point he’s sitting on the edge of the stage, and says, quite lucidly and sincerely, “I like this music.”
              It’s actually a touching moment.

    ‘Let him die’: Scientology leader David Miscavige had private eyes watching his father, say police »
    A sociopath can’t feel love or remorse. dm reacted like this on his own father. What reaction can we expect from him for people that get on his way or family members of people he hates because they are speaking up about his abuses. Did he know the deterioration of Lisa M? Did he ordered the long drive to get her to the hospital when she was dying? What about all the others ” dead by suicide”?. What about Alex, did he know he was sick and in need for medical attention? They are so many questions that he needs to answer, a lot of justice is due. I hope we see that he pays for all.

  • Sherbet

    This may be a very elementary question. cos claims everything negative (Going Clear for one) that comes from the non-scientology world is full of lies and poison intended for only one purpose: to take down the church of scientology. The question is, Why? What’s the motive? Why would the “wog” world care about destroying a “major religion?” So the Evil Psychs can run roughshod on the world and turn it to ashes? Are we all in on the plot, we non-scientologists?

    Instead of treating entheta as simply a bothersome little gnat buzzing around the great brains of the church, cos claims there’s some massive threat that must be exposed and addressed. We know what the threat really is — to DM’s empire — but why does the run-of-the-mill Hubbard-fan believe everyone who isn’t a scientologist is so intent on destroying the church? I honestly don’t get it.

    • splog

      Because Hubbard talked endlessly about the dwindling spiral of the univers which has been going downhill since time immemorial blah, blah, blah, … and this is the only chance in the endless trillions of years you’ve been around to make it out blah, blah, blah… and if you don’t make it go right now you will never have another chance blah, blah, blah…

      With that mindset, it’s not hard to convince the scio that is out to get them and take away their eternity. The suckers fall for it every time.

        I can understand why they want to take over clearing the planet and all that happy horsepuckey. But it’s hard for me to understand why they think we want to interrupt that noble mission.

        Snake, Sejanus, NOLA — I think you’ve made it clearer for me. Thanks.

    • Sejanus

      They think the rest of us are basically in The Matrix when it comes down to it.

      Perhaps I over simplify it, but you get the idea.

    • NOLAGirl

      The “enemy on the outside” group-think, no matter what the enemy is, is part of keeping the hive together. They’re taking it to a new level though, I hope it is what wakes some people up.

        Yep if you take away the fake enemy, fake war, and fake navy costumes, what do you have left but a bunch of empty Orgs.

    • Snake Plissken

      Well you see about 800 quadrillion million zillion billion skillion years ago these evil psychs brainwashed us to do it.

    • MoX, Mother of Xenu

      I don’t understand why they don’t admit what their crimes are, make it go right and stop pulling all this entheta in.

        That part, I DO understand. The cos has no crimes. The crimes are out here.

        • MoX, Mother of Xenu

          So they’re the victims!

          That helps!

          But what do you call victims of victims?

      Creating the ‘us verses them’ mentality is very important in keeping clams in the prison.

  • Sejanus

    Everything about $cientology came from the mind of a paranoid, deluded, sad case of a man.
    Is it any wonder that legacy is so deeply ingrained into the organization and its’ leader that it is part of the very dogma they follow so blindly.
    The only good thing to come out of it all is the sure knowledge that whatever is said by them to be true, is actually the exact opposite from what the truth really is.

    Why isn’t Super Dooper Being, Freedom of Valor Winner Extraordinaire Tom Cruise using his greatness to confront and shatter all this suppression? Because eventually the truth comes out and he is everybit a cowardly liar as his mini mental mentor is. They are not only a joke, but now they are becoming despised…and they know it.

    You never hear of people who left the Co$ and have stood up for it. Not a single one.
    Mot people I run into who had former churches they went to usually tell me..it simply wasn’t for me but hey..if some people like it..go for it.

    • Alice Graves

      I suspect now that the press is on a feeding frenzy after scoops of this magnitude on Co$ and its dictator, more and more lurid facts will be spilling out like this – from people who were afraid to speak before, and police and news reports. As more damaging reports mount, Big Being Cruise will have all his PR people formulating his “There’s No Way I Could Have Known” speech. His PR people will know he needs this at the ready for that inescapable moment when the house comes down, Miscavige has absconded to a deserted island, the feds are closing in, and he’s left holding the bag.

  • Jimmy Threetimes

    My child arrived just the other day
    He came to the world in the usual way
    But there were planes to catch and bills to pay
    He got a report on them every day
    And he was stalkin’ ‘fore I knew it, and I had no clue
    ‘Til he said “You know I’m gonna spy on you, Dad
    You know I’m gonna spy on you”

    And the cob’s in the cradle and he’s such a loon
    Little boy never grew and his ego’s the moon
    When you comin home, Dad?
    I sure know when,
    I’ll get a report from my men
    You know I’ll get a report from my men

Taxpayers will be sweating over their taxes while scientology is spending members’ tax-free donations on private investigators and using that exemption to get away with many other crimes. Its a perfect time to put this in front of people.

            Mark,

            I had no other way of getting in touch with you since you haven’t been around much lately, so I’m replying to this really old post of yours. I’ve been getting into Living Colour again recently, and I can’t stop playing one of their tunes with a bassline to die for. It’s played by Doug Wimbish on the “Stain” album, and it’s one of the best lines I’ve heard a bassist play in a long while. I am curious to know what you think:

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vqnVhCADFHY

            Hope everything’s ok.

            John

            • Mark Foster

              Sounds like he´s playing fretless. Sliding the harmonics is a nice touch. Doug can play…
              Been checking out some Rainey and Jamerson lately,along with Paul Chambers and Oscar Pettiford…and lots of saxophonists…

            • jazzlover

              Wow! You’re a student! All of those are legends. Man, Rainey’s on a ton of sessions. I love Wimbish. That bass line sounds so simple, but it hits just the right spot. I was initially disappointed when Wimbish replaced Muzz Skillings (who is a monster too), but that quickly subsided. One of the jazz cats who worked at J&R back when I shopped there went to Berklee with Skillings and Will Calhoun. He said that all the drummers at the school used to line up just to hear Calhoun practice! I know he’s not really just a rock drummer, but he’s easily one of the best to arrive on the music scene in the last 25-30 years. As far as saxophonists go, there are so many greats — literally dozens who have gone under the radar. Two of my fave altoists are Gigi Gryce and Ernie Henry. As far as tenor goes, I can’t sop listening to Sonny or Wayne 🙂

            • Mark Foster

              Student/fan/music lover/ humble supplicant at the altar of Music, yes!

      • StudentOfLife

        One thing I”m confident of, MissSavage, if he doesn’t want prison, will have to find a drone free zone somewhere and I’m not so sure that’s possible. There are a lot of disgruntled people, and unlike me, they will want real vengeance. I’m sure he’s taken ex-celebs and millionaires for quite a bit of money and caused great shame and anguish (think about what James Packer knows and how he feels now that he’s out) and one of them will want silent justice (end of The Departed comes to mind). Plus I”m seeing a lot of suicides associated with the cult by people forced or who try to leave but I’m not sure if that’s always been a pattern. Some parent is going to want revenge if nothing else if he tries to flee. He will be hunted if he tries to run and he might actually have to live among the pygmies to not be seen so at least he won’t have to lie like LRH did about such. He would live a lot longer just being Bubba’s Bitch (an apt nickname for FFT).

        • Toni m

          Sorry for my ignorance but who is James P.? Anyway I am happy for him and for anybody that is out.

          • StudentOfLife

            James Packer is one of Australia’s richest men. I have the impression that Scientologists only make friends and stay friends with people who they view as “raw meat,” especially if they have money. Celebrities are trained to recruit other celebrities for their huge influence and deep pockets. I can tell you that because of my association with a famous sports Scientologist, I now notice a pattern, all the other sports figures he brought in (most are now ex-ers) have a pattern of seducing women, bringing them into the cult, draining them of their money, and then ditching them when the money dries up. I have witnessed this happening as I’ve met a fair number of Scientologists over the last 12 years. As I started realizing I was conned by my business partners, I’ve also talked to four women, none of them associated with each other, who have since told me they realized they were “marks” and that these athletes or Scientologists (one is a non-athlete but bit actor) only seduced them to get their money for the cult. As a longtime tennis coach (I only do it part time today), I come into contact with a lot of mostly higher income people in Ojai, and I’ve taught tennis in Clearwater, Encino, Ventura, St. Louis, and I’m actually a fairly prominent coach at the amateur level, so my association with a prominent Scientologist means I draw questions others might not be approached with. I’m convinced Cruise and MissSavage identify “marks” in the 1 percenters who undergo crisis and might be good targets for conversion. I suspect Cruise and Travolta even double team certain marks such as Packer as I found Cruise befriended Packer in Australia and then Travolta also and that could be pretty compelling to a 1 percenter undergoing a personal crisis. Packer luckily got out.

  • TheHoleDoesNotExist

    Hey, Tom Cruise. Where’s your TMZ channel now?

    These two dirtbags sound like arrogant dirtbags. The fact that got off serving is just another slap in the face for all of us putting up with crap to end the days of dirtbags like these.

    For those that missed it, this is an example of what these two criminals got (pretrial diversion program) Instead Of 5 to 10 years prison sentence. Now that I hear their voices – and remember they earlier admitted part of their job was to find people to pretend to be friends to help spy and stalk – I haven’t yet simmered my rage at justice once again turning its back on us all. It’s beyond frustrating – it’s infuritating.

    Benefits of the Pretrial Intervention Program:

    • Avoid the stress and cost of a criminal trial
    • Avoid a potential criminal conviction
    • Avoid a potential permanent criminal record
    • Receive counseling or psychological treatment
    • Reduced recidivism rates for those who successfully complete PTI
    • May have criminal record of arrest expunged, if otherwise eligible

      So Lt Lawson was the officer who supposedly checked on Shelly and he is clearly in CO $ pockets? I thought this was just a concern… didn’t know there was proof. Holy shit.

      • ElleGee

        EO: Thank you for that clarification (for me). I thought that there was some connection, but wasn’t sure what is was exactly.

    NEW POST IS UP

    • Zana

      You’re amazing. You never sleep. 🙂 You were terrific on MSNBC this evening. Succinct, smart, totally prepared to tell the important things in good sound bites. Really good, Tony. Thank you.

      Okay… I thought I was going to bed. Now I have to go read the new post. I’m addicted to the saga. You are a fabulous reporter.

    Holy shit, great audio clip about Cruise.

    • Juicer77

      The movie really sucked, but we told everybody it was great so we would get paid. That’s gotta hurt ol’ Tommy’s pride.

      • 1subgenius

        Too sweet.

      • WildaBeast

        You know, since Going Clear came out, I’ve been served up so many helpings of sweet schadenfreude, savory schadenfreude, deep-fried schadenfreude…well, you get the point. I’m drowning in an endless five-star buffet of schadenfreude and I feel like I’m going to get utterly spoiled, you know?
        But the thought of Tom Cruise hearing about how his last movie sucked but the PIs were joking that it was great so they could get people to see it so they’d get paid…there’s a lovely little fillip to that particular flavour of schadenfreude that I could REALLY come to enjoy.

    This is one of the bigger bombshells in the aftermath of Going Clear. I do hope a lot of congress members and senators get exposed to such stories. Scientology craziness, in terms of their abuses. have hit mainstream. I hope it sinks in deep in the collective consciousness of decent people on responsible positions. (thinking of legislative bodies, and investigation organizations in the USA).

    Oh and a big hello to you: my bunker family! I <3 U all.

    • ObsessedReader

      I haven’t seen you here much lately, Fuzzy. I hope all is well! I love your tweets.

      • BFM

        I am here everyday, but chose to do some J&D-ing, and spreading some truth on twitter. Simply because in the aftermath of Going Clear there are many persons who have questions. Felt tweeting to them will have more effect raising awareness. But I never skip a day reading the Bunker 🙂

        • ObsessedReader

          You are a good monster, Fuzzy. Thanks for doing that!

          • BFM

            Thank you for you kindness. Doing my part to right the wrongs I once was part of. In a sense, it is very important for my healing to do this. And by God, I am going to continue until there is no more Co$ left.

    Boy, PIs really come from the sleazy end of the gene pool.

    I hope they get Miscavige before he takes himself out. I’d like to see him suffer in confinement like he’s made others suffer. Wonder what color tie he’d pick to address his prison cell. He should be stuck in one that’s 3′ by 3′

    • shasha40

      Why the need for so much room ? Lol

    After Lisa McPherson’s death, the many reports of having to escape from this cult and the fortress that Shelly is housed in- with no chance of escaping- can’t the police remove her from there and try to make sure that she isn’t being held against her will. Just a phone call or even quick visit isn’t enough. Jenna and many others can attest to the programming there and Shelly needs help- emotionally. Shelly does not have family (apart from her in-laws) on the outside to help her or demand to see her. Miscavige has proven himself to be very extremely dangerous.

    It’s becoming comical any more when you constantly hear the churches response : ” It’s a lie, they are all liers”. As Dr. Evil would say,
    Rrrrrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiigggggghhhhhhtttttt……..
    It’s not a “church”, it’s the new Mafia run by thugs and bullies using their tax exempt status as a front for their “non profit” organization.
    If Miscaviage is a true believer on Scientology, then he should get paid what the other Sea Org members are paid ( $50.00) a week and work their 100+ hour work load and eat what they do …. not the food his private Chef cooks for him…
    The biggest scam he’s got going is the buildings the church are buying. He tells the locals in that city they should donate to buy their own church in their community so they fund raise the shit out of the locals for millions, then after He buys it he tells them it will take millions more to renovate it.. so they give millions more.. even though he uses free slave labor from Sea Org members to do all the dirty work…. then once the new staff take over that building they are expected to pay Miscaviage RENT for a building the locals paid cash for!
    He is the biggest con artist of all time.. a true snake and Tom Cruises best man!
