Scientology Inc’s Lobbying Machine

Some commented on the posts of the last couple days on Scientology Inc’s Washington Lobbying apparatus that there did not seem to be much money involved.  Well, based on the work of the folks at Why We Protest and Karen #1 in just a few hours a different picture emerges.

As to Greg Mitchell,  see Secular Invasion of Washington , according to documentation available at Campaignmoney.com, between 2008 and the first quarter of 2011, he received $290,000 from Scientology Inc:

Here is a shot of Greg doing his best Bill Clinton Jr impression:

Greg "Little Bubba" Mitchell

As to Joe Grieboski, see Corporate Scientology Mercenary, and his Scientology Inc front group Institute  on Religion and Public Policy, check out this Return of Organization Exempt from Income Tax for 2006:

Scn Inc Institute

Note, this form covers a time closer to form-up. You can bet that in later years quite a few more greenbacks made their way through its coffers.   Also note that David Miscavige’s personal attorney, Monique Yingling, is listed as a director along with Scientology Incers Luis Colon and Judy Cranford.

Vice president of the board is one Bill Walsh.  Walsh is the character that accompanied Yingling on Miscavige’s six man mission to Denver in April 2009.  Their target?  To shudder Mike Rinder into silence so as to spike the original St Pete Times series The Truth Rundown.  Result? Epic Fail.

Bill Walsh does little else than serve as a yes-man to David Miscavige.   In fact, he nods in agreement so much that Mike Rinder and I have referred to him as a very expensive bobbing-head doll.  With that in mind, consider this: Walsh was pulling in close to a 1/2 million dollars a year from Scientology Inc over multiple years.  As late as 2007, an Office of Special Affairs financial planning document referred to Walsh’s nearly 1/2 million dollar a year production as “spectator work.”

If a non-productive bobbing-head doll can pull in nearly 1/2 million dollars a year from Scn Inc, what do you suppose they are paying their heavy hitters?

Effective or not, do some math and recognize what your fees have really bought.

Scientology Inc’s Secular Invasion of Washington D.C

The hypocrisy of David Miscavige and his Scientology Inc arms knows no bounds.  The following church of Scientology Office of Special Affairs (OSA, dirty tricks, propaganda, and bribery unit) documents it.

The document outlines a plan to buy a “secular tech invasion in D.C.”, through yet another commission based lobbyist.

Pay special attention to target 1 in the “Earmarks” section:

Work out the earmarks (federal funding to be approved by Congress) for ABLE programs and close Senators and/or Congressmen to propose these in March/April and then champion them for approval in October as part of the US budget.

Compare that to Scientology Inc’s other front group CCHR doing a blitz to undermine the health care initiative emphasizing the importance of pushing fiscal conservatism, CCHR attacks healthcare, evidenced in CCHR honcho Bruce Wiseman’s plea: The key “swing” votes on this are going to be democrats who are fiscally conservative and / or are up for re election in 2010.

That is right, Miscavige has one arm threatening Congressmen with re-election woes if they don’t get “fiscally conservative” while his other arm is out pimping for Earmarks!   Morally bereft with no conscious this snake in a suit is.

By the way, you can learn more about lobbyist Greg Mitchell, referred to in the program, at his Orwellian-named website, Free and Independent.

MITCHELL PRODUCTION PROGRAM

Greg Mitchell (GM) is a legislative consultant who counsels the Church, ABLE and SBCs inWashington. He has become a Scientologist and is disseminating Scientology to some of his contacts.

Most of Mitchell’s work is being done for the SBCs as he was specifically retained in 2003 to introduce LRH secular tech on the Hill so Senators, Representatives and their Aides got to know about LRH effective work for society and weren’t left with the wrong data about Scientology that they got from German, French or other SP diplomats operating to counter our human rights and religious freedom campaigns.

GM has gotten Criminon delivery started in the DC half-way house system and has Congressmen from Illinois,Michigan and Utahinterested in the programs. His flat rate ($3000) is being paid by the Church (with some sundry expenses being covered by the SBCs). He will be taken off the flat rate and is going to be paid on a “by product” basis. Additionally, the SBC will be asked to start covering some of the cost of these projects. This program lays out needed production that GM must generate in exchange for funding from the Church (“beans for beans”).

PURPOSE

To make Congress and US federal officials aware of the Church’s secular LRH tech programs and their indispensability for society.

MAJOR TARGET

1. To get Greg Mitchell to create reaches for LRH tech and SBC delivery from Congressional terminals and knocking out psych tech from the fields of drugs, education and criminal rehab.

2. To achieve Congressional support for the Church itself.

PRIMARY TARGETS

1. Assume full responsibility for Greg Mitchell and accomplishing the major targets of this program.

2. Write projects for Greg Mitchell that he understands, agrees with carrying out and follow through with him so he does accomplish useful VFPs and subproducts.

3. Hat GM on the policies of name/want/get, get him the tech on compiling a subproduct list and definitions of production and viability.

________________

4. Groove in a weekly BP and report line with GM, so he has to work out what products he is going to get and then report on what specifically he accomplished.

________________

5. Work out a budget covering each of GM’s projects and coordinate the funding with ABLE (who will coordinate with the SBCs). Get the budget plan approved by IRD and WDC OSA and WDC ABLE. This is the basis for what will be covered in the weekly FP (based also on the “beans” being produced).

________________

VITAL TARGETS

1. Maintain utmost efficiency by providing GM with easily digestible information, presentation material and documents about the SBCs, the effectiveness of the tech, etc., that he needs to do an effective and 100% professional job.

________________

2. Never permit GM to overspend but enforce proper planning, including financial planning, scheduling and production for what is paid.

________________

3. Keep GM aware that commensurate production of verifiable VFPs must be present for our Treasury Authority to continue financial outlay.

________________

4. Get into full and continuous coordination with ABLE Int and, through ABLE, with the SBCs so that all concerned know about what is being produced, can contribute to the actions on “the Hill” and create a secular tech invasion in DC.

CONDITIONAL TARGET

 

1.  If GM has additional ideas to improve and multiply the VFPs   he can get, this needs to be rapidly cleared with CO OSAI, budgeted and implemented.

________________

OPERATING TARGETS

1. Brief GM on the change in funding—that he is coming off the flat rate and will be paid on a “by product” basis—and provide him the list of projects and have him work out how he will get these done.

1. Work out what new bills or legislative changes to get done to cause public policy improvements that favor, as directly as possible, the SBC programs ability to obtain funding for LRH secular tech delivery, while concurrently curbing psych and other enemy operation in these . Create the correct political mix and alliances in support of the bills so they pass.
