Blog: The Tipping Point For Scientology Inc. - 2012-06-29
As I noted on 20 May, 2012, David Miscavige was going to face a "long, hot summer." At that time, I could not share details so as not to compromise the safety of a number of important folk quietly riding the Underground Railroad. (for background on the Underground Railroad and a real time account of John "JB" Brousseau's travel upon it, see JB Goes Mobile.)
As reported today in the Village Voice, there have been two notable departures from Scientology Inc's international headquarters (Int base). David Miscavige's father Ron Miscavige Sr. and L. Ron Hubbard's granddaughter Roanne Horwich left the Int base some months ago. I have not reported on the details so as to afford Roanne and Ron time and space to resists Miscavige's extraordinary efforts to corral them back into his prison camp (Int base, near Hemet California). As you can imagine, the efforts were extensive and some of the means were ruthless. But, Roanne and Ron (who left separately, with his wife Becky) have weathered the storm and further human trafficking efforts by Miscavige and Scientology Inc applied to them now will simply serve as fodder for more exposure on this blog and in the news media.
Ron Miscavige Sr. was the last of Miscavige's immediate family members to remain loyal and obedient to the tyrant. The last remaining member of L. Ron Hubbard's family still remaining loyal and obedient to Miscavige (even while silently seething toward Miscavige) is Roanne's mother, Diana Hubbard Horwich.
