Is Scientology using Tommy Davis to get Aussie billionaire James Packer back in the fold?

Tommy_Davis_Packer_Carey

 
Former Church of Scientology spokesman Tommy Davis has a new job, and with a surprising boss. In February, Davis went to work for James Packer, the Australian billionaire Tom Cruise lured into Scientology in late 2001, but who hasn’t been involved in the church since 2006. Davis left his job as church mouthpiece in 2011, and testified in a deposition in December 2013 that he was on leave from Scientology’s “Sea Org,” but was still a member of the church itself.

Davis and his wife, fellow former Scientology spokesperson Jessica Feshbach, moved from Austin to Los Angeles a couple of years ago, and recently added a second daughter to their family. Packer, meanwhile, is engaged to singer Mariah Carey, but the press in Australia reported that their wedding has been put on hold “indefinitely.”

Packer and Davis knew each other well during the time the Aussie billionaire dabbled in Scientology. Davis, the son of actress Anne Archer, was serving as a handler for Tom Cruise, who had brought Packer into the church after a disastrous year of business failures and other pressures. And now, a decade later, Packer has made Davis his “general manager North America” for the family investment firm, Consolidated Press Holdings. According to Tommy’s LinkedIn profile, that means he’ll be helping Packer with, for example, his investments funding movies through CPH’s subsidiary, RatPac Entertainment.

Former Scientology executives who knew Davis said they were stunned when we told them about Tommy’s new job. Marc Headley, who worked at Scientology’s secretive International Base near Hemet, California for 15 years, tell us that it’s hard for him not to believe that Davis is under pressure by the church to convince Packer to return to the Scientology fold. “He’s the perfect guy to go in there on Packer,” Headley says.

We sent an email to Tommy, asking about his new job. We’ll let you know if he gets back to us.

Although Tommy Davis hasn’t been the Church of Scientology’s spokesman since early in 2011, we still get questions about him all the time. Tommy’s antics as the church’s mouthpiece are still remembered fondly by Scientology watchers, particularly his epic showdown with journalist John Sweeney in the 2007 BBC film, Scientology and Me.

But after Lawrence Wright ran rings around Davis for his February 2011 New Yorker article about Paul Haggis — which was the basis for his later book Going Clear, as well as the 2015 documentary by director Alex Gibney of the same name — Davis suddenly dropped out of sight. We discovered that in March 2011, a month after Wright’s article came out, the Church of Scientology International paid for rights to the URLs “whoistommydavis.com” and “whoisjessicafeshbach.com,” which is the format that the church uses for its anonymous smear sites. Someone at the church was apparently making preparations to spread negative information about Tommy and his wife. That’s the best evidence we’ve found for when Davis and Feschbach lost their jobs and left Scientology’s Sea Org. (A “shore story” that Feshbach had experienced a recurrence of childhood cancer turned out to be untrue.)

Those websites never materialized, but Tommy and Jessica vanished, only to show up in Austin, Texas, where Jessica’s deceased father had owned an expensive condo. (Texas seems to be the state of choice for former Scientology executives putting some distance between themselves and the church’s hotbeds in California and Florida.)

We kept tabs on the couple as Jessica took out a local realtor’s license and Tommy went to work for Santa Monica-based Colony Capital, a private equity investment firm headed by Thomas Barrack, Jr.

The last time we had any interaction with Tommy, he had come to New Jersey with his boss as Barrack appeared on a CNBC segment in November 2013. We asked Tommy if he had time to meet with us for lunch in New York, and the former Scientology flack responded, “You’re a delusional, bigoted, hate mongering asshat. Don’t ever email me again.”

A few weeks later, on December 4, 2013, Tommy gave a deposition in Monique Rathbun’s (now withdrawn) lawsuit, and under questioning by attorney Ray Jeffrey, Davis said that he was “on leave” from Scientology’s Sea Org, but that he was still a member of the Church of Scientology itself.

Despite that testimony, a source close to Davis and his wife told us around that time that Davis was actually being critical of Scientology in private emails. We wondered if Anne Archer’s son was moving away from the church entirely.

But that same source tells us that today, things are different, and Davis brooks no criticism of Scientology by those around him.

For his part, Packer was pulled into Scientology when Tom Cruise came to his aid after a disastrous 2001. Packer, the son of famous Australian billionaire Kerry Packer, has admitted that he was at the lowest point of his life. James had lost about $365 million in a bad business deal, and his first marriage was in trouble. Cruise, who Packer had met a few times, then showed up and helped Packer get through his tough times.

By 2004, Packer was so involved in the church, he was hard to miss as the tallest guy in the front row of the celebration that year when Cruise was given a special “Freedom Medal of Valor” by Scientology leader David Miscavige.

 
PackerIASa

 
Just two years later, however, Packer walked away from Scientology. And in a widely watched televised 2013 interview, Packer described the help he received from Tom Cruise in some depth, but he didn’t mention Scientology at all.

Yesterday, we noticed that presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump mentioned on Twitter that he had dined with Tom Barrack the night before. We joked in a tweet of our own that this meant Tommy Davis may have managed to get some face time with the Donald. One of our readers, however, commented that she didn’t think Davis was working for Barrack any longer. That turned out to be correct, and when we realized that Tommy had gone to work for James Packer, we started making phone calls.

Our well-placed source confirmed that Tommy is working for Packer, that he and Jessica now live in a swanky part of Los Angeles, and that they have just had their second child.

Suddenly, Davis being spotted last March having lunch in Los Angeles with James Packer’s ex-wife, Erica Baxter, takes on new importance. (Baxter and Packer are apparently on good terms after their 2013 split; Erica wished James well in his upcoming wedding.)

And now, Tommy is working for Erica’s ex. Here’s how he described his job at his LinkedIn profile: “Management and support for North American investments and assets. Responsible for CPH’s North American business development and investment sourcing and execution. Current investments include Nobu restaurants and hotels, RatPac Entertainment and the future Alon Casino and Resort Las Vegas.”

We asked John P, our longtime reader in the financial markets, to tell us about Tommy’s description of his job.

My first impression is that this is an intentionally vague title. These are sometimes used when a firm is employing a senior executive’s family member in some capacity and they are given a courtesy title that sounds more impressive than their actual responsibilities. In most industries, “general manager” is a fairly important job. A restaurant or retail store would have a general manager, as would a division of a large diversified manufacturing company. The general manager would be responsible for all aspects of operating that business unit, such as achieving sales and profit targets, making hiring and firing decisions, and making most other decisions affecting the health of that unit. But titles work a bit differently in the world of finance. People in that world rarely if ever have the title of “general manager.” If you are one of the senior executives of an investment-oriented firm you would typically be titled “partner” or “managing director.” There are also other titles in use like “portfolio manager,” but I can’t recall coming across a person with the title of “general manager.” Consolidated Press Holdings operates a number of casinos around the world. That’s a unique business, and you don’t get to be a “general manager” of a casino without many years of extensive and very specialized training. I believe Tommy is a “fixer” of some sort within the holding company, and probably has minimal contact with or responsibility for actual operations of any of the business units.

If Marc Headley is correct and Tommy is under pressure to convince his boss to get back on course in Scientology, it would be a major coup if he succeeded. Packer, who Forbes rates as the 453rd richest person on the planet with $3.8 billion in assets, would become Scientology’s richest member, flying past the current record holder, Bob Duggan, who is #638 and worth $3.1 billion.

But would Mariah Carey put up with her fiancé rejoining Scientology? Our sources have their doubts, but we’re trying to get better information on that.

[Back in the day: Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes on James Packer’s boat, with Tommy Davis, who is sporting a Sea Org tattoo on his shoulder]

 
UPDATE, May 28: Indefatigable entertainment reporter Roger Friedman got quite a kick out of our story. Friedman knows Tommy Davis from way back, and remembers fending off the feisty former flack when Davis was smacking scribes on behalf of the Church of Scientology.

Friedman points out that the news we broke that Tommy is now working for Australian billionaire James Packer has some interesting implications in Hollywood, where Packer is teamed up with producer/director Brett Ratner and his RatPac Entertainment in order to finance various projects.

Through his sources at RatPac, Friedman found out that Davis is claiming that he’s “renounced” Scientology, which neither of us buys for a minute. As we reported in the story above, a source very close to Tommy says that he brooks no criticism of the church in his presence. But much more telling is what Friedman found, that Tommmy is palling around with Michael Doven — and we hear that he’s even been introducing Doven to people as his best friend.

“You are shitting me,” Marc Headley said when we told him that piece of news. Headley worked as a Sea Org official at Scientology’s secretive International Base in California for 15 years before his harrowing escape, detailed in his excellent book Blown for Good. “Oh, now there’s no question what’s going on,” he added.

Did Tommy, when he was showing Doven around, not expect his new film friends to make use of the Google? A quick search brings up our 2012 Village Voice story about Doven being used for more than a decade to spy on Tom Cruise for Scientology, according to former church executives Marty Rathbun, Mike Rinder, and Claire Headley, who all witnessed Doven delivering reports on Cruise while he was working as the actor’s personal assistant.

So now Tom Cruise’s personal Scientology handler, Tommy Davis, and his longtime Scientology spy, Michael Doven, are gladhanding Hollywood producers on behalf of former Scientology stooge and Australian billionaire James Packer?

Headley says there’s simply no question now that Tommy Davis and Michael Doven are working on James Packer on behalf of Scientology leader David Miscavige, who is the only person in the church who would oversee or sign off on such an operation.

Oh, this is almost too good to be true. We can’t wait to find out more from Friedman, who really knows the players in the film world.

    John P wrote “My first impression is that this is an intentionally vague title”. Sometimes, to please a client, a company will give the son of the CEO a “job” in the company, or a rich man will make his son a president of a local branch of the company so he has something to do (think Fred Trump loaning The Donald money for his Atlantic City casino). This person is called a sinecure. Often, he does no work and is so unreliable that it better if he does no work. With Davis, I suspect that he is just a contact who can refer a whale, and, in return, can have whatever title or duties he wants, but is not expected to provide any expertise or brilliant work.

  • Lousy Ratatouille

    I wonder if Mariah Carey is aware of the following facts:
    – Tommy Davis lies about disconnection
    – Scientology is harder to fight than ANY possible rival in her relationship with James Packer.

      My feelings are mixed. Part of me feels bad for the guy but the other part is like…..Hey Packer!! Do you ever Google?? I don’t know, I just hope Miniscavige doesn’t get his hooks into him again.

      • Qbird

        He seems to be a fairly tender person. He has a lot of strong feelings inside… and then sharing them with the world… that’s brave.
        I find it odd that an extremely wealthy person has difficulty finding any peace & joy.
        really?!

        • Panopea Abrupta

          It seems to me that the odds have been stacked against him for a very long time.
          Immense wealth, yes.
          But a monster of a father.
          And he’s not the sharpest knife in the drawer.
          He is still stuck defining himself in relation to his old man.

          Easy to see how Cruise and his ilk were able to get to him.

          He is very open about his feelings and even remarkably so.
          But he seems brittle.
          I hope he goes for real therapy, not a plunge back into the clutches of Lord Hubris’ spawn.

          People who value intrinsic values are happier than those who value extrinsic.
          Tim Kasser’s research on the subject is unequivocal.
          And has been replicated worldwide.

          Packer and many others in those rarified positions stand on very shaky ground.
          Does the world really need more and more casinos?
          What a strange thing to do with your life!

          • Andrea ‘i-Betty’ Garner

            You said it so well (of course you did), and I think you’re right on all points. I didn’t expect to feel for the man after watching this interview, but I do.

  • Ben Franklin

    What would James Packer gain by rejoining Scientology? I may be going against the grain here, but, I take this as a sign that Tommy Davis is either drifting away from the Church by associating very openly with former members, or he is making amends for something by trying to bring Packer back into the fold. It is rare for a Scientologist in good standing to seek and accept employment from an SP without repercussion even if the person is a whale. Just my opinion.

    • Juicer77

      Good question. A whale employing a “wog” seems infinitely unlikely. I am still mulling over what 10oreos said earlier. Who says he ever left? The only evidence we have is his statement that he left the Sea Argh but was still a $cientologist. It could be that he has just been laying low and is now snuggling up to the next source of funds.

      • Ben Franklin

        The fact that they were planning to trash him with a whois website says a lot to me, because based on its history, the Church does not make such a move unless someone is planning to blow or become critical of the church. Maybe they talked Davis into behaving after leaving, but the looks of it, he was probably planning to go rogue and the Church was preparing for it. It would not surprise me if Tommy was being hired by the likes of Duggan or even Tom cruise, but someone who left the church in such a public fashion says a lot.

    • MaxSpaceman

      The lure is RatPac and Packer’s co-ownership of that, which merged with Dune Entertainment and are real ‘players’ in financing/distribution of motion pictures.

      So, the upside for Packer: To get back with Cruise. They could develop projects together, Cruise in some and other projects w/o Cruise acting, for global distribution.

      Playing in the big leagues of A-list movies is the biggest arena of “content” and ‘content is king.’ Packer in Scn again would bring Cruize and Packer together, which would help Tom immeasurably, because other than “Mission” he’s got nothing going, really, in global box office.

      Here’s what Packer (RatPac) has been up to: “RatPac-Dune Entertainment or RatPac Entertainment, is an American motion picture financing company formed in a merger by producer-director Brett Ratner, his partner billionaire James Packer, and Dune Entertainment’s Steven Mnuchin, which provides funds to a number of Warner Bros. films.[2][3][4][5] The company is the result of a 2013 merger between RatPac Entertainment and Dune Entertainment, following a collapse in negotiations between Dune and 20th Century Fox – which led the company to close a deal with Warner Bros. instead, replacing Legendary Pictures as Warner’s key co-financing partner.[2][5][6] Dune had been co-financing Fox films since 2006.”

      • Ben Franklin

        Packer is already a Billionare, the RatPac, Tom Cruise, Tommy Davis etc all need James Packer more than James needs them. By the looks of it, it seems to me like Tom Cruise disconnected from Packer when he left the Church why would Packer want him back?

        • MaxSpaceman

          Packer is ‘no one’ in the world of entertainment. It doesn’t matter- wealth at his level: who cares, yawn. That’s Hollywood. If you’re a star, the word ‘star’ and the whole machinery attached to that, is what adds value to wealth.

          Packer needs Cruise more than Cruise needs Packer, from this p.o.v. But, it looks like, if they come together, it would be they need each other equally.

          But, in the end- the ticketseller voted by the MPAA as Star of the Year many many times in his 30+ year career is ‘vastly’ more in demand than Packer. That’s Hollywood.

          • Ben Franklin

            There are more Illustrious Hollywood actors that James Packer can go after if he is really desperate for a Hollywood friend. Tom Cruise is yester years Superstar. I am not buying into the idea that Packer needs Cruise in his life because Packer is the investor with loads of money that Cruise would beg for to help fund his next movie project.

            What I am trying to say is that Packer can invest in any industry, he is maybe just investing in Hollywood and entertainment business because of his friendship with the likes of Tommy Davies. The man is already rich, he does not need the risky entertainment portfolio to make a living. I bet he may be in this line of business just as a favor to a friend. Who knows maybe on of his friends might convince him to invest in some oil exploration, gold mine, or maybe build Disneyland in Dubai

  • Sejanus

    Tommy Davis couldn’t convince a chain smoker to light one up.

  • sundaygirl

    My first thought was that Tommy Davis is moving farther away from Scientology. Packer has been out of Scientology for too long and Mariah Carey has publicly melted down before. She’s clearly been prescribed some sort of psychiatric medication (she was hospitalized for a breakdown) in the past and her exes have claimed she’s unstable. Would Scientology trade Packer’s billions for a potential meltdown from her? It seems more to me that Davis might be seeking refuge from Packer.

    • Bobby Tolberto Aka TDA

      When I lived in the Bay Area there was review of a concert she gave when she first started performing. It noted that she was so shy she couldn’t talk to the audience but had to sing her greeting to them instead. I always thought that was kind of weird. Plus her relationship with her first hubby was, shall we say, interesting.

      • sundaygirl

        She’s always been kind of a fruitcake. As paranoid and cautious as Scientology is, she would be nothing but a liability to Miscavige.

    • Its actually a perfect storm.
      Money, and someone on psych meds who can be convinced she doesn’t need them.

      • sundaygirl

        I would think the last thing Scientology would need is an unstable Mariah Carey Packer knowing some ins-and-outs about it. She and Packer haven’t been together very long and, if they do end up getting married and then divorced, she would be a bigger liability to the organization than anyone, with the exceptions of a disaffected Cruise or Travolta. Can’t see her holding back. Miscavige is dumb, but is he THAT dumb?

        • And out of touch with reality.
          Never bet on the basis of ‘even Miscavige wouldn’t do anything that dumb’.
          He has done. He would. He will again.

    • Draco

      I agree. I also think TD is moving away, and I can’t see Packer getting back in when there has been so much exposure of scn over the last few years. There is no way he could miss seeing it.

    I read this as James Packer putting Tommy Davis on the payroll to serve as a buffer against the Cult, this under the maxim, “keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” If I’m a billionaire former Scientologist and the Cult has my pc folders, then I will play OSA to a stalemate. I do this by giving Tommy, a prize chess piece in my power calculus, a cushy job. One of Packer’s other goals might be to use Tommy Davis as a handler for his Scientologist wife Erica from whom he is separated. Tommy was palling around with Erica in 2015: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2989073/Erica-Packer-spotted-former-Scientology-boss-Tommy-Davis-Los-Angeles.html

    Were I an executive or an owner, I would not want Tommy Davis working for my firm because he is hot-headed, has lied on television about Disconnection, and is obligated by his “Church” to write KR’s to RTC on me, my firm, and the employees in my firm. How is giving the Cult of Scientology a set of eyeballs place in my firm any good? The only sense this makes to me is to use Tommy as a chess piece, a handler for Erica, or both.

    Tommy Davis does not have a college degree of any kind. He has no MBA and no formal license or skill as a CPA or a lawyer. Tommy also lacks a corporate resume showing that he can even read a P&L. So why does a billionaire hire someone so unqualified as the GM of the key market of North America when there are excellent MBA-level candidates available who have proven track records in gaming and hospitality?

    Packer has the money to easily recruit a Las Vegas exec with 10-20 years of solid experience in casinos. It would be easy enough to recruit a VP level exec with operations and P&L experience from Wynn, Las Vegas Sands, MGM, or Caesars. And more than this, Packer would want an exec who knows Macau because he has $4 billion invested there.

    *****
    The fact that Packer has parked Tommy Davis in Consolidated Press Holdings in North America is very suggestive to me. The key markets and seats of power in Packer’s organization are in Australia, Macau, the Philippines and the UK — and these are within Melco Crown Entertainment. Conversely, Packer’s Consolidated Press Holdings lost just south of $500 million in the US on its failed Fontainebleau and Station Casinos investments.

    Packer himself relocated to Israel and resides in an exclsuive billionaire’s enclave there. Packer is focusing on investments in cyber-security. Packer said in a 2015 interview:

    “We are working on a number of investments in the technology sector, mostly in the data storage, social gaming and information security areas. As part of this work, CPH is looking at the IT sector in
    Australia, Israel, USA and Asia involving our partnership with Paul Bassat – through our Square Peg investment vehicle,” he says.

    ref: http://www.smh.com.au/business/comment-and-analysis/james-packer-bets-on-cyber-security-to-grow-fortune-20150804-girfen.html

    Again, Tommy Davis has zero experience in the technology sector. Israel is big in Tech and cyber-security and so Packer moving there aligns him with some heavy hitters while allowing him to rub elbows with wealthy Israelis who are invested in Macau gaming and Silicon Valley Tech.

    I have worked in Silicon Valley in tech (photonics and medical devices) and selling there is an ultra-competitive, A+ game. Looking at Tommy from the outside, he is definitely not Silicon Valley material and would not fit into the fast lane there at all. I would not allow Davis anywhere near Silicon Valley. He just doesn’t have the chops to play there and would be eaten alive. That is my opinion. Seriously, if you think the Sea Org is tough, go try to sell and make money in Silicon Valley with Tommy Davis’ lack of depth and see what happens.

    So if Tommy is GM of N.A., where does he fit into the Packer organization? Packer said in a December 2015 that he stepped down from the Board of Crown Resorts Ltd to focus on “development projects in Sydney, Melbourne and Las Vegas.”

    My deduction is that Packer focuses Tommy Davis in Las Vegas at the Alon: http://vegasinc.com/business/gaming/2015/nov/04/work-under-way-at-alon-resort-site-formerly-the-ne/

    Now follow me here: Scientologist Priscilla Presley was a very solid and succesful business exec in Las Vegas and was on MGM’s board. I have always contended that Priscilla Presley used her influence with MGM’s Kirk Kerkorian in 2007 to have him throw some money into reviving United Artists. UA gave Tom Cruise a vehicle after he was fired from Paramount by Viacom CEO Sumner Redstone. This flopped after “Lions Into Lambs” bombed and Cruise showed no acumen as a studio boss.

    If I were Packer, I would pay Priscilla as a consultant. One of her jobs would be to teach Tommy Davis the casino business. Tommy’s first hard lesson is that Las Vegas is not Scientology. There is not unlimited tax exempt dollars to waste building Super Power buildings.

    The Alon project appears to be going somewhat sideways but will likely break ground very soon: http://lasvegassun.com/vegasdeluxe/2016/apr/18/alon-construction-details-to-be-revealed-in-less-t/

    This let’s Tommy Davis roll up his sleeves and get involved in construction management and the Las Vegas market and how the Alon fits into Packer’s overall empire. When the Alon opens in 2018, Tommy Davis can bring in Tom Cruise and some other celebs for the Grand Opening.

    Maybe David Miscavige can even do a rope pull at the Alon since he has huge experience in the rope pulling business.

    • Since you point out the obvious, that Tommy is incompetent, unskilled, and unaware of it, I don’t see any (good) reason to hire him.
      Of course, Packer’s no genius, having inherited a boat load.
      Can you confirm someone’s earlier claim that Packer gave a seven figure donation to the cult after he left?
      (Now I remember, it was 10oreos, who apparently “counselled” him, and also questioned whether he ever left for real.)
      I’m going with the slip sliding back-in theory, at 2 to 1 odds.
      Money + a celebrity girlfriend who can be convinced she doesn’t need those evil psych meds.

      • J. Swift

        Shorpy, imo, Tommy would be Erica’s handler and really a part of Packer’s household staff. The real Packer execs would give Tommy PR jobs such as attending luncheons at trade groups and picking up their dry cleaning.

        “Tommy, I’ll take a cappuccino and Bruce here would like a nice hot cup of Earl Gray… oh and did you call maintenance to get the air conditioning fixed in the maintenance building?”

        • You have pointed out a theoretical complex reason for hiring him having something to do with Las Vegas, or something, but Occam might apply.
          Was he ever “out”?
          There is a hook here, and the line is being reeled in.
          One generally doesn’t leave Scientology thinking “oh, that’s something I’ll get back to.”
          But, I take it, you feel Tommy is “out” out, and will take some hits for Packer.
          Don’t bother to clarify, I should read closer.

          • J. Swift

            To clarify, I feel that Tommy is still very much in and that Packer can use him to buffer Scientology issues and handle Erica Packer as her EO. The “GM North America” is just, imo, a glorified title.

            • Juicer77

              That makes more sense. Especially since he and Erica are buddies.

            • OK, Mr. Smarty-pants Communist, how will this play out?

            • J. Swift

              Shorpy, this will play out as well as Bodhi Elfman’s movie career.

              C’mon just write the scenario. There’s no money riding on it.
              I’ll get you started:
              Tommy buffers Packer from Scientology, even though he’s still very much in….
              then something happens…..
              I’ll be writing mine in the meanwhile. It will take a while, but its going to be good. And funny.

              If its a 20 minute speech I’ll need a week.
              If you want me to speak for an hour I can start right now.”

            • Bam! 249 words (not including these):

              Shorpy’s Tommy Davis/James Packer scenario:

              James Packer is already “back on the cans”, although he never formally renounced or denounced the cult. His purported split from it was for social and political expediency, as evidenced by his multimillion dollar donation after the supposed departure. (Who does that?)

              He has relocated to Israel, and is being audited by some of the diehard Scientologists left behind when the main org there went independent. This allows him to keep the depth of his involvement away from Mariah Carey*. He is also undergoing a “whale version” of the Purification Rundown at the “Center of Scientology” in Jaffa, although he continues to drink rather heavily, and has been importing that vile brew known as “Fosters” by the boatload.

              He has been to Flag several times but so far refuses to run around what he calls “that bleeding pole”.

              Although he is back in the “fold”, the venture capitalist portion of his brain maintains a certain amount of independence, and he intends to obtain the entire Scientology real estate portfolio at fire sale prices once the cult collapses.

              *Mariah Carey’s medications had been surreptitiously replaced with placebos, and at this very moment she herself is undergoing a version of the “Purification Rundown”, being the first customer at the Celebrity Narconon located at the former Larry Hagman estate. She has no idea where she is.

              Lithium orotate is being added to her “Cal-Mag” despite this not being quite “on source”.

              Of course none of this is.

    • Juicer77

      I hear you, but the buffer scenario feels… wrong, somehow. Davis is such a liability, I can’t even imagine trying to get him to do anything successfully. You know he’d just give you attitude all day and be so much more trouble than he’s worth. I really think he’s trading on previous connections to get a cushy job. It may not have much to do with $cientology and just be the old boy network in action. Just my two cents.

    • Ella Raitch

      Wow – did not realise that Erica is ‘IN’

      So if Tommy is handling Erica, does this mean that James is still a believer, do you think? Or just worried about Scientology trading on his secrets?

      Do you think James is still donating to Scientology directly?

    I don’t know if this has already been mentioned yet, but isn’t Mariah Carey a “psych case”. A few years ago she had some kind of meltdown and may have seen a psych. The cult would want to stop this marriage if that is the case.

    • Science Doc

      She is very, very rich. I’m sure they would be happy to forgive her- if she paid for it!

    • Susan black

      I doubt it. I don’t think they care about Mariah’s mental illness…as long as they can tap her bank accounts.

    • My take is that she’s a good candidate for being convinced she doesn’t need those evil psych drugs.
      And without them she’s putty in their hands.

    He seems to be a sanctimonious turd of the worst kind.
    Someone who likes his own stink and soaks in his own lies.

      Yes, you know he sniffs his own farts like sniffing the finest truffles and then writes up a KR on any poor SeaOrg slob who is having trouble with their rice n’ bean diet.

    As per Hubbard’s scriptures everyone who leaves the Sea Org is deemed a DB (Degraded Being). Does Packer know that because of this Tommy Davis is considered being a degraded being by Scientology? Somebody should inform him – and also about some other things.

    • richelieu jr

      If he’s spent more than 5 minutes with the least successful boy in showbiz, I’m pretty sure he’s up to date on the status of Tommy’s ‘being’.

      Honestly, evaluating Floppy’s worth is number 19,762 on the list of things Scientology is not much help for, in the final analysis? And bringing ‘isness’ into the equation is like the cherry on top of the shredded ives and documents.

        This is not meant against TD but against CoS and how people get labeled.

      That’s why, for PR purposes, Tommy Davis is ‘on leave’.
      If he had routed out, he would be considered a DB and his mommy, Anne Archer, would have a coniption.

    I doubt that James Packer is a dummy but he did have a father who appeared to be considerably smarter than himself. No way would the old man have had little Tommy Davis on his payroll with a “special” title. Still, Tommy is going to have to convince Packer that scientology can benefit him sufficiently to justify the millions of dollars it wants from him on a continual basis. I don’t think Packer is around people who are afraid to bad-mouth scientology. I know Mariah isn’t timid so, good luck Tommy if your mission is to turn Packer into a whale. I don’t see it happening.

              As Karen says: No one on planet earth achieves ( totally stable exterior ) EVER; but is due to the population here, not LRH-s efforts to bring it in.

              ▬▬▬ separately:
              In reference to Mimsey Borogrove ~ not to «devolve into total babble» which I neither deny nor wish to run away from those, as i said them—but the sad-fact is I was too-long on Highway to Hell with Alky’s Anon and am re-adjusting. Farther in, if Tony does not kick me off as Bunny wants a soft-furry place to play—we find there will be hell to pay when I suggest to Karen that Hubbard was out of his mind, and is agent for an enemy far vaster, far worse, whom exists beyond «space-time» and can do heaters direct on the mind of the corporeal human body, and that Hubbard was on a valiant effort to defend us from the Killer Tomatoes.

              In the III materials, which Karen apparently has fluent knowledge of, the entry point into the material-plane is documented by Hubbard, then he goes off on a tangent.

              He has a missed-withhold, which females favor, hence Karen & Bunny will team-up to do flash-wars where few know how to go. I am there, every-day. It gets lonely up here.

I go into session easily and want to let Karen know I never had any clue what Hubbard was saying by List-7—which I saw repeatedly at some point in my reading, and is obviously some basic thing that Hubbards needs in to fly the material which I was reading, but why such repetitive mention of it as something is grinding if he has to mention it that often.

    – They will also donate some of their proceeds to Foundation For A Drug Free World!

    These are the bold statements made on the band’s IndieGoGo crowdfunding page. They wanted to raise USD 40,000,- to take care of expenses before they set off. The crowdfunding has now ended, and they reached the staggering goal of… *drum roll* … 601 crisp US dollars. Yes, that’s about 1,5% of their goal.

              Too true. And it has long been a boy’s network–especially in the majors, but even in indie circles, too.

            • jazzlover

              It’s really unfortunate. Lots of talented musicians stay away from that nonsense as a result. And we’ll never hear what they have to offer. One of my favorite quotes from one of my favorite musicians (Robert Fripp), and it always makes me laugh, for some reason. He was at a signing a while back, and afterwards, he did a Q&A. Somebody asked him what his best advice for budding musicians was. With straight face, his immediate reply was “Don’t become a professional musician”. LOL

            • 5 Feet Long and Luminous

              That’s such an English thing to say, though. (OK, British Bunkeroos can yell at me, but it’s more honesty and self-deprecation than you’d likely get from a lot of high-profile American musicians.)

              Most of the musicians I admire have either stayed on the indie circuit, or at least kept a low profile. As long as they can earn a living, great. But at one point, one of my favorite musician, Eric Bachmann–someone I think may very well be Americana’s MOST underrated songwriter–was living out of his car. That shit ain’t right. That’s a system that needs fixing.

            • jazzlover

              That’s a good observation! I think Fripp had finally had it with being ripped off. It took him the better part of 10 or so years to regain control of his music, and had dealt with crooked accountants, managers and record company execs for the better part of his career. And that shit ain’t right either. Oh, I just thought of an American who was brutally honest about how he felt about that – Prince. But yeah, musicians shouldn’t be living like that.

        PARRY was an early (1972!) chatbot written by a psychiatrist that simulated a paranoid schizophrenic. It was able to pass a Turing test, fooling other psychiatrists, who couldn’t distinguish him from human schizophrenics over a terminal link.

        I wouldn’t be surprised if NJ was a chatbot, but that’s a strong claim to make without proof that he isn’t a somewhat cognitively disordered human being trying to express himself. He could be for real. Unless he says something that gives away the game one way or the other, I’m agnostic on the chatbot theory. Mentally ill people are easy to simulate with a bot, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist.

        • I am for real, though «somewhat» cognitively disordered under-rates my dementia; which usually running around 11 or so personalities before the machine goes into a disordered state which is neither dementia nor capable of keeping up with what I can do, running parallel.

          I am not familiar with «schizophrenic» as a clinical term by professionals, nor do I wish to engage psychiatrists, engaging John Atack as a professional courtesy. I am a human being trying to express himself, though to post here—on that critical-rebuttal by Bunny—may leave my Skull where I do not want it.

          I accepted others making strong claim without proof as rules of engagement here—though if you want to see paranoid, try this:

          Is that paranoid to you?

          If so consider that a professional psychiatrists can generate such things in the self convincingly.

        I am concerned that he really is mentally ill. Sometimes those with mental problems are also really quite adept/skilled in many areas, but still their thinking processes are extremely impaired. I think he may need help.

        • Jake Hamby

          Yep. I’m convinced he’s for real after his last replies. I just went on a rant on Twitter about how ignorant people are about mental health and how easy it was for everyone here to just assume he was a chatbot as soon as the first person suggested it (first on the ESMB theead and then here), and how sad I felt because I figured he was a real human. I used to work at Google: we had a pretty good idea of methods to tell humans from bots. Humans are much less predictable and make more mistakes.

          It’s easy to dehumanize people, especially those of us who aren’t neurotypical. I get the same thing on a smaller scale because of my ADD (prefrontal cortex wired up differently, different dopamine receptor behavior) but people tend to assume that I’m lazy or not trying my best instead of that I’m some sort of nonhuman. Being pigeonholed as “a crazy person” sucks.

          We (as a society) have been trained to ignore or push away people who don’t make sense to us in a way that we think is crazy, but this is the first time I’ve seen someone acting troubled on a forum accused of being a bot. I know people like to accuse others of being sockpuppets of someone else (usually a previous banned visitor) but not literally confused with a machine. Who would make such a bot? What would they get out of it? The fact that everyone bought into the bot theory instantly is what scares me about Internet culture.

      For what it’s worth (3 €-cents including a small premium for knowing a thing or two about “programming”), I do not think that Nick is a “program”.

      I’ve been looking at a lot of his posts since he first came here, and he’s been able to pull off several things which are not all that hard to do for a real person, but would be incredibly complicated, if even possible at this time, to implement into some kind of algorithm, let alone all of them into the same one.

      Just a couple examples of what your garden-variety “chat-bot” could not easily do: Nick’s been talking back-and-forth with TX Lawyer in ‘quasi-Legalese’, with Chuck Beatty in ‘quasi-Scientologese’, and with others in ‘Conspiracy-speak’; he’s refering to Ron Miscavige Snr. as “Mr Savage”; he has parsed OTVIIIisGrrr8!’s screen name into “OT-8 is Great” at the 1st try (trivial for a human, not so much for a program); he’s been providing daisy with not one but two correct and visual instructions on how to change her Disqus screen name; he’s been advising another commenter (forgot the name) on how to delete thousands of emails from their GMail account; and he’s been repeatedly pointing out visuals (eg. volcanoes) contained in random YT music videos.

        Anyone with half a brain can see the dichotomy…..did David ‘save’ his innocent father or did Ron ‘whitewash’ his crimes?

    Bloomberg today reports: Miami’s Condo Frenzy Ends With Inventory Piling Up in New Towers
    http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2016-05-27/miami-s-condo-frenzy-ends-with-inventory-piling-up-in-new-towers

    A glut of 3,397 condos are for sale. Located in new Miami condo towers, many units are being offered for less than purchase price. Many wealthy South Americans who bought in big have bailed due to deteriorating economic conditions in South America.

    Self-described “billy hunter” Grant Cardone of Cardone Real Estate Acquisitions LLC went in big in 2015 for a $126,000,000 investment in apartments. This raised the company’s apartment portfolio to $350,000,000.

    My question: Did Grant read the tea leaves correctly in borrowing to buy 1,434 premium-priced apartments in AL, GA, and TN? IMO, a better play with $126,000,000 would have been to buy discounted condo towers in Miami and convert them to rentals. That’s an easy centralized play on premium units in a prime location at a discounted rate.

    Cardone’s purchased 1,434 units located four places: Daphne, AL, Savannah, GA, and Nashville TN. These locations are not Miami.

    John P., over to you at the Global Capitalism news desk for your analysis. Other commentary is solicited — particularly from locals who know the economic conditions and real estate markets in the South.

    Question: Is the billy hunter headed off a cliff?

    • salin

      Sorry for the crass response, but my initial response: “dumbshit”. Didn’t take any lessons away from the real estate bubble of 2007 and the carnage in the economy, and how long it took for those (off the mark of the hottest places) markets to heat up again?

      Arrogance too often leads people to act in (unintended) ignorance.

            He wouldn’t do it to help Bob, he’d do it for money that Bob would pay him to take the trouble off his hands.

            • jazzlover

              Ah. You’re one step ahead of me. I was even looking at it that way.

    • Panopea Abrupta

      Interest rates are headed up, relatively soon.
      Tough for GC, Louisiana’s oiliness expert, methinks.

      However, the problem for banks who are owed the kind of money
      Cardone has on the line is that they usually can’t afford to call the debt in.
      Banks can be too big to fail.
      Borrowers can be too.
      Even little arseholes like Cardone.

      He HAS to be leveraged out the wazoo on this.
      It depends how tight a rein is run on him.

      It will give me immense pleasure if he is indeed headed off a cliff.
      No parachute, no bungee cord, just a big fat postulation.

      • jazzlover

        Another question is: if he goes bankrupt, how fast does his ass get kicked to the curb? When that happens, all his little $1,000/hour consulting opps go right out the window, Elena better prepare to go work soap operas again 🙂

      • Juicer77

        I think he’s leveraged out the wazoo on everything he does. I know someone who has been doing this on a small scale for years. Regularly can’t cover his payroll but “owns”* a lot of property. You’re right – he banks can’t afford to call in all their loans. They would posture and send nasty letters but at the very last minute he sent them a trifling amount and it all went away. As long as that interest keeps getting paid, the banks love a good untouched pile of capital.
        * note by “owns” I mean he was in debt for 90% of it, spread around on different loans. Very little actual cash to be had.

    • Todd Tomorrow

      Eight years ago I spent a 3 day weekend in Ft. Lauderdale a month. I was put up in a huge condo right next to a trump building that had suspended construction. 1/3 of the beach strip was that way at the time. You couldn’t give away, at that point, a sexy condo on the beach. The only construction was the security guards erecting their sandwiches. One other thing that was interesting was that 2 out of 4 of my driver’s were N.Y, policeman and Fireman who cashed out their pension’s to leave after getting PTSD from 911. Real Estate was cheap and they got some sort of pension, as well as, the equity from their house in NY.
      I must say my meetings are now in Del Rae Beach and fewer and far between so i’d be interested to see how the real estate market has rebounded after seeing these huge houses in the sky unable to be sold at a 2/3 discount.

    Base – Release all the Drones!!

      Sorry. I might’ve had at least one martini already.

        Yup. He’s got a well hung mind.

        And I’m not apologizing. I blush to think what I’d say if I had a martini already. In comparision, you’re quite circumspect. Let me know what you think after you’ve had another one… then another… 😉

    Tommy Davis can eat a dick. It seemed like he was halfway out after his disastrous stint as PR guy, and he was finally about to redeem himself. but now, it seems like he’s been threatened and cowed into sucking up to the cherch again. probably by his mother. if he’s so afraid to say that he’s out of scientology because Mommy Dearest will disconnect from him, then he deserves every bit of bowing and scraping he has to do to try to get back in the good graces of DM. I’d say he’s a squid, but that’s an insult to squids. more like a slug.

    • 5 Feet Long and Luminous

      “Eat a dick…” One of my favorite insults, thank you…I don’t think Tommy was ever halfway out, though. And I think he is forever beyond redemption, whatever his scientology status. But I will always salute his taste in footwear. And also the fact that he is the world’s most massive tool.

      • Ella Raitch

        I wonder if he postulated becoming the world’s most massive tool, or if it was just good luck?

        • 5 Feet Long and Luminous

          Here’s what I think: those blue suede shoes of his are like ruby slippers. Click the heels together, and they’ll give you whatever you want.

          • Ella Raitch

            So are we confident that he’s a real boy now?

            • 5 Feet Long and Luminous

              I don’t know. Check the nose.

        • jazzlover

          I always thought he was just shooting for knob and ended up on tool.

          • Ella Raitch

            ROFL…. good to know that a tool is short of a knob. I learn things here every day.

            • jazzlover

              Ha! One must work really hard to reach knob status. Tommy just doesn’t have the rank.

        well, that much is clear now. I just hope that James Packer has the sense to stay far far away from scn if he values his billions. Mimi certainly isn’t going to join up with that shit. Can you imagine?

        • 5 Feet Long and Luminous

          Oh, I would LOVE to see Mimi vs. Scientology! No one has any gods before Mimi. The law is writ.

    • How dare you. He’s got a Sea Org tattoo.

      • sashiebgood

        meaning that he’s a Sea Slug?

        • 5 Feet Long and Luminous

          No, I don’t think he went to UC Santa Cruz.

    • Todd Tomorrow

      I know his money comes from Daddy, Anne’s first husband. Somehow his younger brother dodged all this cult BS. Momma bunny boiler still talks to him.
      Edit, I wonder how and at what age Jeffery told his $cion parent’s.”you know that $cientology BS you put me through growing up? Well I’ve done some internet search’s and it isn’t for me” Mama Archer probably had him Federal expressed to delphi school. She is such a zealot, I’m amazed she didn’t disconnect from him.

    Tommy Davis is on a special assignment. It must be working since he has money coming from the mark. Now Packer has punched out one of his old friends. Is it a real thing? Or is it Scilon influence? Would it matter to Tommy Davis?

    You know, I was wondering about Tommy, but If there is Money, he will provoke the PC into a fist fight with an old friend son long as Chairman Miscavige approves… Billions or not, Packer is nothing but a PC.ETA : A LOADED PC, but still… RTA Packer blew up on an old friend…, acquaintance or whatever. Is that like what Tommy did for Sweeny? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxqR5NPhtLI But we know his game a decade later…

      The Shrubs cover the fence so that onlookers cannot take photos. Scientologists often cover the area of actual event so that they can Photoshop the crowd later and lie to the general public that “millions” attended the event.

    Anne speak;

    My parents’ marriages and divorces left me thinking
    that it wasn’t possible to have a long, good marriage but my second
    husband, Terry, convinced me otherwise. I got married for the first time
    a little too young, aged just 21. I’m very happy I did because I have a
    wonderful son from that marriage, Tommy, but that was a very rocky
    time. I’ve been with Terry [with whom she has a son, Jeffrey] for 35
    years. We get along beautifully and it’s the best thing I ever did in my
    life. I probably have a better marriage than 99.9% of the people on the
    planet.

    When I had Tommy I was not in a happy marriage, so
    it was really kind of my baby boy and me. Then when Terry came along he
    was much more involved. That’s not to blame my first husband; when the
    marriage is not good it’s hard to be involved.

    Scientology has been very meaningful in
    my life. It’s taught me a lot of good information. A lot of sanity.
    It’s a lot about responsibility and it’s very smart stuff that has
    helped me in my life, and Terry as well. My older son has embraced Scientology but my younger son hasn’t, which is absolutely fine. There is no conflict. It’s only true if it’s true for you.

    • Todd Tomorrow

      Glad that Anne Archer and her clammy husband didn’t get to their youngest son,

    • JaxNGold

      “It’s taught me a lot of good information. A lot of sanity.”

      Major eye roll.

      There it is again — with the “sanity” bullshit. Seriously, enough already with that. It’s so annoying. Everything to these people is “sanity”. Quite ironic for a group who’s bought into the lies and empty promises of a madman.

    Didn’t someone make the connection with Scientology and ADHD somewhere?

            But? never mind!

      • Why didn’t he claim he was giving “touch assists” as part of his religious practice?
        He needs new lawyers.

    • Juicer77

      The only connection I know of is the Citizens Commission for Inhumane Rights (as I like to call them) protesting the use of ADHD medications, especially in kids.

      • Dice ✓

        Well i was thinking about those Scios “in” really act like the have ADHD and i think someone mentioned or wrote about them cultivation this form of abnormality during the years inside? Ring any Bells!

        • Juicer77

          Ah, I understand. I can see how some behaviors of long-term $cios could be interpreted as ADHD. The extreme “uptone” energy, always being rushed to show purpose, hyper-focusing on one thing at a time. But in my completely amateur opinion, those with genuine, severe ADHD generally jump from thought to thought quickly and couldn’t focus or stay physically quiet long enough to do many of the early drills or auditing. Overall I think what you’re seeing is the “now now now” mentality that Chris Shelton spoke about. You have to maintain that frantic pace of activity ALL the time according to Hubbard’s twisted plan. It’s amazing to me that many more people don’t develop severe psychosis from this abuse.

          • Dice ✓

            Well maybe they do? – over the last 4-5 years, those execs i have access to my observation – Are diagnosed with ADHD – interesting 🙂

            You right, i think i should look around Chris Shelton and that’s probably why nothing shows up on Google as he is a spoken Man 🙂

      • FredEX2

        Yeah…so why don’t they protest the abuse and separation and slave labor of Scientology children?

        Greetings Ann B!
        Right nice of you take interest in little ol’ me.Sorry about your negative experience with the co$ scam. Always having been immune to hubbard’s looney-tunes bullshit, it’s hard for me to imagine how anyone could let themself be bamboozled by these charlatans. My first and last encounter with sciostupidity happened 30 years ago when I lived in San Jose, Cal. a rather amusing tale about how I laughed in their face after they tricked me into taking the “Personality test” . I almost wish Some osa asswipe would try to harass or intimidate me so I could punch him in the nose and claim self-defense. I’ve heard horror stories of Folks being hounded for years after being “tested” …Not me Baby, My laughing at this poor glass-eyed shithead closed the book co$ and me. Since then I’ve kept a wary eye on THEM. I wish you and all other exScio’s well. Keep an eye out for more biting commentary from laughingfatbaby (your’s truly )

    SHOCKING that some one that wealthy and successful (packer) can be also incredibly shockingly stupid and clueless! GEE, i wonder why a movie star (tc) would become your friend.. because gosh knows a movie star and a filthy rich (even richer then him) australian businessman have Soooo much in common including geographically!..

    and DON”T FORGET bunkeroos.. that doven is also alleged to have been Physically handled by cruise, treated like crap by cruise when he was in his employ (if you look closely at the end of the infamous saving face or trying to oprah interview at his home in colorado (up for sale) you can see Doven being the one taking photos of oprah and cruise riding off on the snowmobile, more importantly DOVEN himself is now a “producer and head of his own production company” because like tommy davis and his new gig, he is of course HIGHLY QUALIFIED FOR SUCH A TITLE! Uh huh!HAS NOTHING to do with being given start up money by a certain cult and/or movie star and to keep his mouth shut!…

  • Packer will fit in fine. He barely pays tax and thrives of a cult (well a casino but same thing )

  • Harlequin

    Tony Ortega’s Scientology blog broke the news late on Friday: after years off the radar, the murky celebrity religion’s former spokesman, Tommy Davis, has popped up again in Los Angeles in the employ of Australian billionaire James Packer.

    Packer’s private investment vehicle, Consolidated Press Holdings, has hired Davis as its general manager, North America.

    Ortega’s conspiracy theory goes that Davis has been planted to lure Packer back to the bosom of Scientology.

    Old friends: James Packer in 2005 aboard Arctic P with Tom
    Cruise and Katie Holmes (right) and Tommy Davis (shirtless, far left).

    Wade Laube

    That’s far-fetched to say the least, given Packer’s residency in Israel and friendship with the country’s Prime Minister Benjamin “Bibi” Netanyahu. Last time we got a close look, JP was well on the way to being more Jewish than Fran Drescher.

    And by all accounts, Davis was cast out of David Miscavige and Tom Cruise’s
    inner sanctum and exiled from the secretive church’s Sea Org arm in
    2011. Since then he’s been working for (Catholic) real estate
    billionaire Thomas Barrack.

    Back in Sydney, CPH headquarters is a sea of boxes as the 50-strong operation prepares to leave its spiritual home, 54 Park Street (AKA the Tower of Power), once the office of James’ grandfather Sir Frank, father Kerry
    and their publishing and broadcasting empire. The magazines remains in
    the building, under the ownership of German family publisher Bauer
    Media. The underground car park will shortly be subsumed by Mike Baird’s new metro line. CPH sold the building to AMP in 2009 in the eye of the Global Financial Crisis.

    In three weeks, Packer Inc (including deputy chairman John Alexander)
    will move a block west to the 39th floor of the Grocon-built ANZ Tower,
    home to the bank’s chairman (and executor of Kerry’s estate) David Gonski on level 25, his former firm Herbert Smith Freehills (spread over 13 floors), and just four levels beneath developer John Boyd’s penthouse – where an uneasy peace was brokered two Thursdays ago between Malcolm Turnbull and Alan Jones. The radio host is a “pick and stick” peer of James’, while the PM used to lawyer for Kerry. Circles within circles.

    ANZ Tower on Sydney’s Castlereagh Street.
