    I suppose the general mesage is going to be to give your money without restraint to the "Church" to become super-powerful thetans who can then just postulate what they like and then it does not matter whether you go bust or not. You can always magic up the money at a later date.

    I see this is aimed at the UK where they have no whales. They will be using Matt Feshbach to try to get together that 33m GBP that they are asking for (but don't have a plan on how to spend) to get the Birmingham Ideal Org open (which they quoted at 6m GBP previously which seems more sensible).

    I am sure that Matt Feschbach will be working on a percentage basis. And I guess Sheila M. Bulger and a few others will be in on the act as well.

    Make sure that everybody who is a Scientologist attends. Block the exits. All those people attending WILL HAVE money. Lots of money. Especially those in the Midlands who have money stuffed in their matresses.Get the whole of that needed 33m GBP and more to make this trip over worthwhile.

    Do a good job and Matt Feshbach might be able to pay off his debts in just this one week of work.

    "If you haven't already bought your ticket ..."? Hell, this is going to be a double whammy.

    Last chance this evening!

    I wish we coud get some feedback from the three seminars already done. I feel sure that there will have been crush regging for the 33m GBP that Herr Dwarfenführer has demanded but maybe not. Maybe it was just for a friendly get together with calmag and cheap cheese on biscuits thrown in for free. If there were crush regging then the first talk could have provided some forewarning and thinned out the attendance at subsequent events.

    Just an estimate of the numbers would be good as it would give a realistic count of members the cult can rely on in the UK, and I think that number is low now with all the crush regging done in the past few years.

    I'm liking Mike Rinder's style a lot these days. To me, it is clever and refreshing and seems to indicate that he is totally out of the cult and its mindset. Maybe only the first is true and I like to think the second thing but whatever, I like his style of writing that he does these days.

    So Matt Feshbach has done Super Power twice now. Why the hell not? Keep doing it until the process is flat..... then C/S the last one as an overrrun and charge for a few intensives of special OT repair.

  6. Rinder often makes sense unlike his friend Rathbun.

    I hope that 33m GBP is good as on the table after Matt's Mammoth Regfest. I mean, the UK clams have parents who are going to die and leave them their money so why not get them to ask for it right now? If they had gotten the promised gains from doing the bridge, especially with GAT II, then they would want other people to have those gains. And they need a few Ideal Orgs to do that - and that takes money - all the money they have got, all the money they can borrow, plus everything they will inherit....

    ..... unless they did not get the gains, that is. Because, perhaps, they falsely attested. Such that a Clear was never truly a Clear and an OT never truly an OT. In which case..... they will have to redo their Bridge all over again! Again!

    Are you aware of the fact that Matt Feshbach declared bankruptcy and is still in the midst of a lengthy court case with the IRS in Federal Court Tampa which accuses him of serious tax fraud? Does Dave know this?

    The first Scientologist with ‘Super Power’ gets super spanked by bankruptcy judge

    By Tony Ortega, The Underground Bunker, November 1, 2017

    Quote:

    Forbes has a wonderful article about a bankruptcy ruling involving a wealthy pair of jackasses who got their heads handed to them recently by a fed-up judge.

    As writer Jay Adkisson explains, there’s a lesson for wealthy people who cry poverty so they can try to get out of paying a huge tax bill — if you’re going to do that, at least try to look penniless rather than spend money like Croesus, money that could easily pay your tax debt.

    “The debtor who claims to be broke had better at least appear to be broke,” Adkisson writes. Instead, this couple, who had brought in $13 million in revenue since they got into trouble with their taxes but refused to make good on a $3.8 million tax debt, didn’t even attempt to cut down their spending as the case was going through court: “$722,000 was spent on personal travel (including $233,000 for a rental home in Aspen), a cool half-million on clothing, another $370,000 and change on groceries, (plus another $78,000 eating out) and a miserly $147,000 plus on entertainment…$360,000 on their children, including of course private education for their son. But more important than their children was the private chef, who cost more than $610,000 over eight years.”

    What the Forbes article didn’t explain, however, was that this profligate couple, Matt and Kathy Feshbach, are considered Scientology royalty, and Matt was actually the first Scientologist in the world to go through “Super Power” processing because in the 1990s he had made a $1 million dollar donation to the Super Power project, which eventually resulted in the “Flag Building” being opened in November 2013. (And also, he redid Super Power more recently, which doesn’t say much for the permanence of that processing, does it?)

    Despite his superpowers, Matt and his huge spending couldn’t convince the bankruptcy court to discharge his tax debt.

    And hey, we can sense a pretty pissed-off judge when we read one. From Florida federal bankruptcy Judge Catherine Peek McEwen’s ruling:

    The Feshbachs made poor spending decisions, continually leading a life of excess in the face of serious, known financial obstacles. At all times, their primary concern should have been reducing their substantial tax debt. But as their immoderate spending choices show, they were far more focused on living in the lap of luxury. They would have been wise to heed the proverb which cautions that enough is better than too much. As it is, however, the Feshbachs’ misjudgment ultimately cost them complete relief. Having concluded that the Feshbachs willfully attempted to evade their tax debt within the meaning of 11 U.S.C. § 523(a)(1)(C), the Court rules that such debt is nondischargeable. Accordingly, the Court will enter a separate final judgment in favor of the United States in this proceeding.”

    Ouch! In other words, the Feshbachs are still on the hook for that entire $3.8 million tax bill and primarily because they were such arrogant a-holes and spent money like crazy while they knew they were being investigated and watched by the federal government.

    Longtime readers might understand it when we say this may be just about the most Scientological behavior we’ve seen spelled out in court documents in a long time.

    But let’s remember who we’re talking about here — the Feshbach family is not exactly one that we’re not familiar with here in the Underground Bunker.

    <snipped>

    Just this week, the Feshbachs filed an appeal of Judge McEwen’s ruling, so this case will continue to wind its way through court. But it sure is refreshing to see this ruling, and to think that somewhere, someone told a couple of arrogant, narcissistic Scientologists where to get off. Here’s the ruling:

    Scientology’s ‘Super Power’ poster boy gets dunked on by yet another irked judge

    By Tony Ortega, The Underground Bunker, November 16, 2018

    Quote:

    Last year, we told you that Scientology’s first “Super Power” recipient found out that his super powers didn’t extend to the legal arena, where he got his head handed to him by a bankruptcy judge.

    Well, now we can tell you that it’s happened again.

    Matt Feshbach and his wife Kathy got reamed by a judge last year who castigated them for trying to appear too poor to pay a $3.2 million 2001 IRS bill, but then over the next several years spent like the profligate richies they are, completely oblivious to the fact that they were being watched carefully by IRS auditors at the time.

    The Feshbachs cried poverty at the time, even though they had brought in $13 million in revenue. But instead of paying their debt, according to Forbes magazine they spent “$722,000…on personal travel (including $233,000 for a rental home in Aspen), a cool half-million on clothing, another $370,000 and change on groceries, (plus another $78,000 eating out) and a miserly $147,000 plus on entertainment…$360,000 on their children, including of course private education for their son. But more important than their children was the private chef, who cost more than $610,000 over eight years.”

    The court was not amused.

    “The Feshbachs made poor spending decisions, continually leading a life of excess in the face of serious, known financial obstacles,” wrote Judge Catherine Peek McEwen in her ruling denying the request by the Feshbachs to discharge the IRS debt in their bankruptcy. “At all times, their primary concern should have been reducing their substantial tax debt. But as their immoderate spending choices show, they were far more focused on living in the lap of luxury.”

    Wow. As we said last year, it may have been “the most Scientological behavior we’ve seen spelled out in court documents in a long time.”

    As we explained last year, the Feshbachs are Scientology royalty.
