Development of Dianetics and Scientology
Stephen Pearl Andrews was a leader in the religious movement called Spiritualism.

Stephen Pearl Andrews (March 22, 1812 – May 21, 1886) was an American individualist anarchist, linguist, political philosopher, outspoken abolitionist and author of several books on the labor movement and individualist anarchism.
Andrews was born in Templeton, Massachusetts on March 22, 1812, the youngest of eight children of the Reverend Elisha Andrews and his wife Ann Lathrop. He grew up thirty-five miles northeast in Hinsdale, New Hampshire.[1] Andrews went to Louisiana at age 19 and studied and practiced law there. Appalled by slavery, he became an abolitionist. He was the first counsel of Mrs. Myra Clark Gaines in her celebrated suits. Having moved to Texas in 1839, Andrews and his family were almost killed because of his abolitionist lectures and had to flee in 1843. Andrews travelled to England, where he was unsuccessful at raising funds for the abolitionist movement back in the United States.
While in England, Andrews became interested in Isaac Pitman's new shorthand writing system and upon his return to the United States he taught and wrote about the shorthand writing system and devised a popular system of phonographic reporting. To further this, he published a series of instruction books and edited two journals, The Anglo-Saxon and The Propagandist. Andrews devised a "scientific" language he called Alwato in which he was wont to converse and correspond with pupils. At the time of his death, Andrews was compiling a dictionary of Alwato which was published posthumously. A remarkable linguist, he also became interested in phonetics and the study of foreign languages, eventually teaching himself "no fewer than 32" languages.
By the end of the 1840s, he began to focus his energies on utopian communities. Fellow individualist anarchist Josiah Warren was responsible for Andrew's conversion to radical individualism and in 1851 they established Modern Times in Brentwood, New York. He was elected an Associate Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1846.  In 1857, Andrews established Unity Home in New York City. By the 1860s, he was propounding an ideal society called pantarchy which is a society with a voluntary government strongly connected with a New Catholic Church and from this he moved on to a philosophy he called "universology" which stressed the unity of all knowledge and activities. He was also among the first Americans to discover Karl Marx and the first to publish his Communist Manifesto in the United States.


Andrews was one of the first to use the word scientology. 

The word is defined as a neologism in his 1871 book

 The Primary Synopsis of Universology and Alwato: The New Scientific Universal Language.

 In the 1870s, Andrews promoted Joseph Rodes Buchanan's Psychometry besides his own universology predicting that a priori derived knowledge would supersede empirical science as exact science.

Andrews was also considered a leader in the religious movement of spiritualism. 

Anarcho-syndicalist Rudolf Rocker called Andrews a significant exponent of libertarian socialism in the United States.

L. Ron Hubbard was not “mankind’s greatest friend”.
As an intelligence agent for the British slavemasters – he was one of mankind’s greatest enemies.

Formation of MI 6

In 1909, the British Home Office became MI 5 and the British Foreign Office became MI 6.
MI5 is Britain’s counter-espionage service. It operates inside Great Britain.
MI6 conducts intelligence activities on foreign soil, outside of Britain.

Admiral Sir George Mansfield Smith-Cumming headed the new Foreign Section of the British Secret Service.
The new Foreign Section is called the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) and MI 6.

Commander Thompson Mentor To Ron Hubbard
.
Commander Joseph Thompson was a medical officer (neurosurgeon) in the US Navy.

Joseph Cheesman Thompson
Joseph Thompson of the US Navy and Consuelo Andrew Seoane of the US Army, served together as spies in Japan starting in 1909. They pretended they were studying coastal reptiles and amphibians, but they were actually charting possible invasion routes and counting all the Japanese fortifications and naval guns that were part of Japan’s coastal defenses. Their espionage work went on from there into places other than Japan. In a subsequent assignment, Thompson was sent into China because of the Boxer rebellion there.
Commander Thompson had a career doing intelligence work using the same archaeologist, exploring scientist cover. He studied bugs and dug up ancient graves, sometimes operating under his real name and sometimes using fake names such as Dr. Victor Kuhne and Joe Tom Sun.  24
Commander Thompson would become the mentor to Ron Hubbard.
On 13 March 1911 Lafayette Ronald Hubbard was born. He is the son of United States naval commander Harry Ross Hubbard and Ledora May Hubbard. A friend of Ron’s father was US Navy Commander Joseph “Snake” Thompson.

All of the basic mental, spiritual, and religious ideas found in Dianetics and Scientology were already developed by the Society for Psychical Research, before L. Ron Hubbard was even born. 

That includes the therapy used.

Vincent Astor Intelligence Network – Naval Reserves
Waldorf Astor was an early member of the Round Table. He and his wife Nancy lived in an estate called Cliveden.
Waldorf and Nancy Astor

The Astors held regular weekend parties and the group that attended them was known as ‘the Cliveden set’.
Some of them were –
Edward Wood, Lord Halifax  (member of Round Table)
Philip Kerr, Lord Lothian  (member of Round Table)
Lionel Curtis  (member of Round Table)
Robert Brand  (member of Round Table)
Geoffrey Dawson  (member of Round Table, editor London Times)
Samuel Hoare  (Foreign Secretary, MI 6)

Waldorf Astor had a wealthy relative in America – William Vincent Astor.
William Vincent Astor
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was Assistant Secretary of the US Navy from 1913 to 1920. Vincent Astor was good friends with Franklin Roosevelt, and they met during World War I to discuss using yachts to make a Naval Reserve Force. They selected their wealthy socialite friends to form a private intelligence network called the Naval Reserves. Their socialite pals were young men who shared the “right” schools, clubs, and connections, and all of them were pro-British. These reserve intelligence officers were under the Office of Naval Intelligence.  12, 15

Roosevelt as Assistant Secretary of the US Navy
Astor and Roosevelt had in common that their grandfathers became wealthy trafficking opium into China.
The grandfather of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Warren Delano Jr., was chief of operations for Russell & Co., a Boston trading firm which did big business in the China opium trade in Canton. He first went to China at age 24 and spent a decade dealing opium on the Pearl River before returning to New York wealthy. He admitted in letters home that opium had an “unhappy effect” on its users, but argued that its sale was “fair, honorable, and legitimate,” akin to importing wine and spirits to America.
Astor’s grandfather became wealthy from trading furs and trafficking opium.
Woodrow Wilson became President of the United States in 1913.
Edward House helped Wilson get elected and was Wilson’s closest adviser.
Colonel Edward Mandell House

World War I was from 1914 to 1919. That was an European conflict that had nothing to do with the United States. American citizens were against America getting into the war. But the British wanted to get America involved on the British side.
Sir George Mansfield Smith-Cumming sent Sir William Wiseman to run the British intelligence effort in America. Wiseman and Colonel House were good buddies. Wiseman was the handler of House, and House was invested in controlling American President Woodrow Wilson. Wiseman and House worked together on handling Wilson to get America into the war.

Blue Sky

Published on Jan 1, 2014

 Bill Franks as the First Executor Director International of Chairmand of the board of the Church of Scientology was asked to muder someone as a way of proving his loyalty to the organization of Scientology and knew about other murders that were planned and orderd by those running Scientology, with such orders coming from Ron Hubbard and other excutives,  which included the planned murde of at least three people which were Member of Parilianment in England in late in late 1979 ...... Bill Franks goes onto say that at least one of the British male MP's was murdered as a result of the orders of Ron Hubbard and other executives ....
Bill Franks state that there wre a lot of Fair Game Orders were given by Ron Hubbard to do whatever to destroy what Scientology considered were Suppressive Persons .. one such case was Paulette Cooper .. the Fair Game attacks against Paulette Cooper was personally handled by Ron Hubbard.... Bill Franks stated that Ron Hubbard wanted his wife Mary Sue to take as much personal blame for any criminal activities that were discovered being carried out by Scientology .... 

Bill Franks states that in the 1970's Scientology had around 110 Attorney in the USA paying over $2 million per month in legal fees when Bill Franks was as the Executive Director of Scientology of the Sea Organization was only earning around $15 per week ,

The real reason people leave Scientology: ARC Breaks

The Edge, June 2010 - Tom Smith interviews Bill Franks who was the first Executive Director International and Chairman of the Board of the Church. Among the topics discussed are Fair Game, Paulette Cooper, the framing of Mary Sue, orders issued against elected officials of a major Western government, Miscavige's psychopathy, Hubbard's psychopathy, etc. The way Bill explains the story of the Hubbard dispatch that admitted people blow due to ARC Breaks (upsets) rather than transgressions, and giving that story the full context, is very good. Take a visit to Scientology's version of the Twilight Zone. The story about Bill Franks is a story about another highly trained Sea Org executive who served directly under LRH, and was later busted by David Miscavige and his team. It is worth noticing that most of the highest Sea Org Executives who was appointed and trained directly by LRH have been SP declared or removed by the current management: David Mayo (Snr C/S Int), Bill Franks (ED Int), Mary Sue Hubbard (Captain and chief of Guardian Office), Bill Robertson (Captain and special missionaire for LRH). Bill Franks joined Scientology in 1968 studying the Saint Hill Special Briefing Course at Saint Hill UK, directly under LRH. He joined staff and went up the Org Board. He was CO AOLA and ended up as ED Int, appointed for life personally by LRH. He was also the Chairmann of the Board of Directors, Church of Scientology International. He was Class IX auditor, OT VII and OEC FEBC graduate. He reached the highest level of administrative training, doing the FEBC directly under LRH on the Flag ship. In December 1981 he was voted out by the Board of Directors, David Miscavige was on the Board. On 12th August 1982 he was SP declared by Watchdog Committee (also David Miscavige).

Here is my story about brainwashing
As you know I have tried unsuccessfully to get this posted elsewhere. I have tried also to tell this story many times since it occurred to me that it might be helpful, but it does not seem to be of interest or there is a lot of apathy out there which is certainly understandable. I retell this here as it is about the tech and I think its useful in explaining a lot of what has happened over the years. 
Firstly, I swear that this is the absolute and complete truth even though it occurred 37 years ago.
Secondly, a little about me which might put things into perspective as to why I saw what I am about to say as very significant and in a way horrific.I was in the SO for a little under 14 years. I attained the "rank' of Lt. Commander through promotions only by Hubbard. I was OEC and FEBC(trained by Hubbard) , HSDC, Class nine when I left in December 27 1981, as well as DSEC, Nots auditor, plus assorted other stuff. I was OT five plus nots, plus sec checked up the wazoo over the years. I also audited between 3-4000 hours conservatively speaking-probably much more, a lot of this was under Hub as the C/S. I spent about 3 1/2 years working with Hubbard pretty directly on the ship at various posts.I got to know him as well as anybody did.
My last position was Chairman of the Board and ED Int both by directive of LRH personally.
OK
Thirdly and to the point of all this preamble, on one night in 1974 I found myself in David mayo's office in the tween decks of the Apollo.
It was very late or early in the morning. We were ,I believe in the port of Safi, Morrocco. A student of mine, I was currently D of T and Mayo was Flag Snr C/S, had blown. Hubbard was extremely angry with us due to this blown student of mine on the FEBC program. In an attempt to show Hubbard what we had done to handle this guy we collected up all the sec checking that he had received over the last 2 months, it had been a lot poor guy, and presented it to him along with an outline of this student's progress on the courses he had taken. We had also wanted to show him how we had been careful that he hadn't gone by misunderstoods, etc.
We waited and waited and about 0300 hrs a messenger came down with a Despatch written by LRH. My memory does not recall any folders being returned. The despatch was entitled Very Confidential underlined. "He went onto say that if you or Franks ever reveal any of this information that I am about to reveal, the consequences will be severe for SCN." 
He then wrote" a person does not blow due Overts or Witholds. He blows only due to ARC BKs". 
"However, If any of this information ever became public,I would lose all control of the orgs and eventually Scientology as a whole".signed "LRH"
Both Mayo and me looked at one another completely incredulously. I cannot speak for Dave but I was completely flabbergasted as I realized at that point of digestion that he is talking about something that 75-80% of the tech is premised upon. Furthermore, the OEC/FEBC was currently anchored by the latest" development" at the time -being the L's, L-10,11, & 12.which for tose who don't know is about OW's. I don't believe Mayo or I talked about this again until we were out where I saw him at his auditing facility in Montecito, California in 1983. I believed we were a bit shell shocked about this.
As for me, I began to see more and more that scientology was merely a big prison camp. I stayed in for another 7 plus years but I was always mindful of this and always had in mind changing this "tech". I believe it is the key to what we have all seen and experienced as brainwashing.
That is all. I hope someone who want to use this will do so as there is no doubt that there is good in the tech it is just a matter of where is it.
How do you sort out the good and the bad and at the same time keep the good without throwing out the baby with the bath water.
I regret that I could not fix this during my tenure.
Best, wogman Bill Franks

Does anyone know anything more about this?
Yeah, a bit;this follows from an interesting FB conversation that Robyn Scott and Bill had with two indies. 
I was about to write to Bill to ask for this info so I'm glad it came up here.
I don't know if Gwells is Bill or a third person.
But thanks Bill and/or Gwells, very interesting story.!

Very interesting and, when you think about it, it's obvious.
I guess we were all ARC broken when we left the cult, but being that we were still fresh from the indoctrination, we looked for our O/W's - I know I did. I thought OK, I'd stuffed up here and there but no rabid SP stuff.
Later, after a few years away from the crap, I realised that I had a lot of disagreements with the Tech and the organisation. Was that a break in reality? It sure was.
Why Hubbard would point this out and potentially weaken his position of power though, is not so obvious.
Thanks for your post.

LongTimeGone, Feb 26, 2011
In February 2011 and incredible testimonial account from Bill Franks, the former international executive director (ED Int) of the Church of Scientology, attesting to one of the biggest secrets behind the brainwashing aspects of Scientology Technology.

Who is Bill Franks?

Bill Franks joined Scientology in 1968 studying the Saint Hill Special Briefing Course at Saint Hill UK, directly under L. Ron Hubbard. He joined staff and went up the Org Board. In December 1979, he was appointed by Hubbard to be "Senior Management Executive International." Franks eventually ended up as ED Int, likewise appointed personally by LRH in December 1980. He also served as the Commanding Officer of AOLA and was the Chairman of the Board of Directors for Church of Scientology International.
Training-wise, Franks was a Class IX auditor, OT VII and OEC FEBC graduate. He reached the highest level of administrative training, doing the FEBC directly under LRH on the Flag ship. In December 1981, Bill Franks was thrown out of his office in Clearwater and fired from his position executive director. In August 1982, he was declared a suppressive person by the Watchdog Committee.
Bill Franks' story about brainwashing
Firstly, I swear that this is the absolute and complete truth even though it occurred 37 years ago.
Secondly, a little about me which might put things into perspective as to why I saw what I am about to say as very significant and in a way horrific. I was in the SO for a little under 14 years.

Verification
The discussion board post excerpted above originally occurred on Facebook (see image to the right) in response to a message Robin Scott posted to Bill Franks timeline. It was passed on to the ESMB community by "gwells," a friend of Bill's who was helping him navigate the internet. 
Despite initial disbelief, Karen de la Carriere initially confirmed it was indeed posted by Bill Franks. Once Bill navigated his way through the registration ESMB process, he personally confirmed it himself.
Additionally, Glenn Samuels independently confirmed this account with through a source close to David Mayo who is unable to speak out directly due to a gag order he was forced to sign during a legal settlement with the Church of Scientology.
Similar to Bill, Glenn lived and worked aboard the Flagship Apollo where he was also personally trained as a counselor by Hubbard. Glenn left Scientology in 1982 after seeing Scientology’s corruption and greed firsthand. His response to Bill's remarks was that "it makes sense; did you leave because you committed some huge crime? Probably not. You left because of abuse, human rights violations, or some other form of harassment."

Additional insights
The Edge with Tom Smith, June 2010 - a previously recorded interview with Bill Franks was re-published on YouTube in January 2014. The topics discussed include Fair Game, Paulette Cooper, the framing of Mary Sue, orders issued against elected officials of a major Western government, Miscavige's psychopathy, Hubbard's psychopathy, etc. Bill also explains the story of the Hubbard despatch that admitted people blow due to ARC Breaks (upsets) rather than transgressions.
This interview was most likely Franks' original telling of his first hand account regarding Hubbard's emphasis on O/W being the source of people leaving the Church Scientology being a blatant deception instituted to control people.
Furthermore, this deception should raise questions regarding the real purpose of Scientology Ethics, PTS/SP tech and Sec Checks. If Hubbard was right when he stated that human beings are basically good, then what is it about Scientology that causes a need for all these coercive tactics, corrections and punishments?

Mary Sue Hubbard was the third wife of L. Ron Hubbard, from 1952 until his death in 1986. She was a leading figure in Scientology for much of her life.

Mary Sue Hubbard (née Whipp; June 17, 1931 – November 25, 2002) was the third wife of L. Ron Hubbard, from 1952 until his death in 1986. She was a leading figure in Scientology for much of her life. The Hubbards had four children; Diana (born 1952), Quentin (born 1954), Suzette (born 1955), and Arthur (born 1958).

She became involved in Hubbard's Dianetics in 1952, while still a student at the University of Texas at Austin, becoming a Dianetics auditor. She soon became involved in a relationship with Hubbard and married him in March 1952. She accompanied her husband to Phoenix, Arizona, where they established the Hubbard Association of Scientologists – the forerunner of the Church of Scientology, which was itself founded in 1953. She was credited with helping to coin the word "Scientology". She played a leading role in the management of the Church of Scientology, rising to become the head of the Church's Guardian's Office (GO). In August 1978, she was indicted by the United States government on charges of conspiracy relating to illegal covert operations mounted by the Guardian's Office against government agencies. She was convicted in December 1979 and was sentenced to five years' imprisonment and the payment of a $10,000 fine. She was forced to resign her post in July 1981 and served a year in prison from January 1983, after exhausting her appeals against her conviction. In the late 1990s, she fell ill with breast cancer and died in 2002

Mary Sue Whipp was born in Rockdale, Texas, to Harry and Mary Catherine (née Hill) Whipp. She grew up in Houston, where she attended Rice University for a year before moving on to the University of Texas at Austin, from which she graduated as a Bachelor of Arts. She originally intended to work in petroleum research, but a friend persuaded her to travel with him to Wichita, Kansas, in mid-1951 to take a Dianetics course at the Hubbard Dianetic Foundation. She soon began an affair with Hubbard, who had just been divorced from his second wife Sara, and moved in with him within only a few weeks of arriving in Wichita. She obtained a Hubbard Dianetic Auditor's Certificate and joined the Foundation's staff.

She became pregnant in February 1952 and married Hubbard the next month. By this time the Foundation had filed for bankruptcy, and Hubbard's erstwhile backer, Don Purcell, was left to deal with its substantial debts. A bitter dispute broke out between the men over the ownership of the Foundation's remaining assets, with Hubbard resigning to start a rival "Hubbard College" on the other side of Wichita. Mary Sue was given partial responsibility for running the new Dianetics establishment. After six weeks of operation  it was replaced in April 1952

 by the Hubbard Association of Scientologists, established in Phoenix, Arizona to promote Hubbard's newly announced "science of certainty"

Mary Sue Whipp’s involvement in the Establishment and expansion of Scientology

The Hubbards traveled to England in September 1952 when Mary Sue was eight months pregnant. According to the Church of Scientology, the reason for the trip was that "amid the constant violence of the turncoat Don J. Purcell of Wichita and his suits which attempted to seize Scientology, Mary Sue became ill and to save her life, Ron took her to England where several Dianetic groups had asked him to form an organization." Russell Miller gives a different explanation: "Hubbard wanted to go to London to establish his control over the small Dianetics group which had formed there spontaneously and Mary Sue insisted on accompanying him." Three weeks later, on September 24, 1952, she gave birth to her first child, Diana Meredith de Wolfe Hubbard. The Hubbards returned to the United States in November when their visa expired and moved into an apartment in Philadelphia.

They went back to London in December on a fresh visa and stayed there until the end of May 1953, before departing for an extended holiday in Spain. In October 1953 they returned to the US where Hubbard gave a series of lectures in Camden, New Jersey and established the first Church of Scientology. By this time, Mary Sue was well advanced with her second pregnancy and remained largely confined to a rented house at Medford Lakes, New Jersey. They traveled to Phoenix for Christmas 1953 and it was there on January 6, 1954 that Mary Sue gave birth to her second child, Geoffrey Quentin McCaully Hubbard.

The Hubbards lived at a house on Tatum Boulevard (now 5501 North 44th Street) on the slopes of Camelback Mountain in Phoenix for the remainder of 1954. By this time, Mary Sue had become a key figure within the nascent Scientology movement. Although Hubbard himself was much admired by Scientologists, his wife was said to be much less popular. Russell Miller notes:

They were indeed an unlikely couple – a flamboyant, fast-talking extrovert entrepreneur in his forties and a quiet, intense young woman twenty years his junior from a small town in Texas. But anyone who underestimated Mary Sue made a big mistake. Although she was not yet twenty-four years old, she exercised considerable power within the Scientology movement and people around Hubbard quickly learned to be wary of her. Fiercely loyal to her husband, brusque and autocratic, she could be a dangerous enemy.

A family friend, Ray Kemp, later recalled: "their relationship seemed OK, but there never seemed to be a lot of love between them. She was not the affectionate type, she was more efficient than affectionate. They used to have fierce husband and wife domestic arguments." Joan Vidal, a friend of the sculptor Edward Harris, who was commissioned by Hubbard to create a bust of him, described Mary Sue as "a rather drab, mousy, nothing sort of person, quite a bit younger than him." Ken Urquhart, who worked for the Hubbards as their butler in the 1960s, commented that Mary Sue "could be very sweet and loving, but also very cold." Cyril Vosper, one of the Saint Hill staff at the time, noted the differing impressions left by the Hubbards: "I always had great warmth and admiration for Ron – he was a remarkable individual, a constant source of new information and ideas – but I thought Mary Sue was an exceedingly nasty person. She was a bitch."

Mary Sue became pregnant again four months after Quentin's birth and on February 13, 1955, in Washington, D.C., she gave birth to her second daughter, Mary Suzette Rochelle Hubbard. Following the birth, the Hubbards moved into a house in Silver Spring, Maryland. A "Founding Church of Scientology" was established in Washington, D.C. and Mary Sue became its first Academy Supervisor.

The Hubbards returned again to London at the end of September 1955, where they took over the day-to-day management of the Hubbard Association of Scientologists International. They remained there until 1957, when Hubbard returned to lecture at the Academy of Scientology in Washington, D.C., with Mary Sue and the children following later. By this time Mary Sue was pregnant for a fourth time and gave birth to her final child, Arthur Ronald Conway Hubbard, on June 6, 1958.

A change in the visa regime in the UK enabled foreigners to remain indefinitely if they had sufficient means to support themselves. The Hubbards moved back to London in February 1959, settling for a while in Golders Green.[18] Not long afterwards Hubbard bought Saint Hill Manor at Saint Hill Green, near East GrinsteadWest Sussex.[19] The manor, a country house formerly owned by Sawai Man Singh II, the Maharajah of Jaipur, became both the new home of the Hubbards and the world headquarters of Scientology.

The Hubbards continued to carry out auditing of each other and in February 1960 Mary Sue wrote to a friend to inform her that her husband had discovered that she had been the writer D.H. Lawrence in a past life. She intended to make use of this discovery by writing a book that would be "completely anti-Christ". The protagonist, "a bastard child", would be the son of the three most virile men in the town (a satire of the Holy Trinity). The mother had slept with all three men on the same night but as she did not know which had fathered the child, had "thereupon decided to call him Ali, son of ----, son of ----, and son of ---- which impressed the local inhabitants and created a stir throughout the country."

By this time, Mary Sue was working as the chief course supervisor at Saint Hill Manor. The Hubbards' relationship was unconventional, as their butler, Ken Urquhart, later recalled: "Neither Ron nor Mary Sue lived the way one might have expected in a house like that. They spent most of their time working; there was very little socializing. They would go to bed very late, usually in the small hours of the morning, and get up in the early afternoon ... [Mary Sue] had a separate bedroom, but usually had breakfast with him – scrambled eggs, sausages, mushrooms and tomatoes. After breakfast he would go into his office and I would rarely see him again until six-thirty when I had to have the table laid for dinner. At six-twenty-five I would go into his office with a jacket for him to wear to table and after dinner they would spend an hour or so watching television with the children and then he and Mary Sue would return to work in their separate offices."

On January 26, 1967, Mary Sue was confirmed as a Scientology "Clear", a somewhat elite rank at that time. Her achievement was commemorated in a special tribute edition of the Scientology newspaper The Auditor, titled simply: "Mary Sue Hubbard – Clear #208". In it, she thanked her husband "for having given the most precious gifts of freedom and true beingness to me and my fellow man. Without him, none of this would have been possible; and so to Ron goes my everlasting gratitude for having provided for all of us the road to Clear."

Mary Sue’s Life at Sea

During the late 1960s, Scientology was faced by an increasingly hostile media and intensifying government scrutiny in a number of countries, notably Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Hubbard decided to take to the high seas in a bid to liberate Scientology from the attentions of hostile governments.On November 22, 1966, the Hubbard Explorational Company Limited was formed with Hubbard and Mary Sue as directors – Hubbard being described as expedition supervisor and Mary Sue as company secretary. Several ships were purchased to serve as the quarters of the newly created "Sea Org". The flagship of the Scientology fleet was the 3,280 ton vessel HMS Royal Scotsman – accidentally renamed the Royal Scotman due to a clerical error,a former cattle ferry on the Irish Sea run.

After the vessel had been renovated by Scientologists, Mary Sue and the children moved into the upper-deck accommodation in November 1968. The difference in the quality of living conditions between the Hubbards and the crew was stark:

Most of the crew lived in cramped, smelly, roach-infested dormitories fitted with bunks in three tiers that left little room for personal possessions. Hubbard and Mary Sue each had their own state-rooms in addition to a suite on the promenade deck comprising an auditing-room, office, an elegant saloon and a wood-paneled dining-room, all off-limits to students and crew. Hubbard had a personal steward, as did Mary Sue and the Hubbard children, who all had their own cabins. Meals for the Commodore and his family were cooked in a separate galley by their personal chef, using ingredients brought by couriers from the United States.

In April 1969, Mary Sue was promoted by Hubbard to serve as the captain of the Royal Scotman and ordered to cruise up and down the coast of Spain to train the vessel's inexperienced crew of Scientologists, who had made a string of mistakes that infuriated Hubbard. The trip had the air of a punishment detail and was dubbed the "liability cruise"; conditions on board were reportedly appalling. According to Russell Miller, "The crew worked to the point of exhaustion, the food was meager and no one was allowed to wash or change their clothes. Mary Sue enforced the rules rigidly but shared the privations, and was scrupulously fair and popular." The entire crew was forced to wear gray rags to symbolize their demotion; it was said that even Mary Sue's corgi dog, Vixie, had a gray rag tied around her neck. The "liability cruise" ended in June 1969. The Royal Scotman was later renamed the Apollo.

Apart from captaining the Royal Scotman for a period, Mary Sue's duties included managing the sprawling empire of the Guardian's Office agency within the Church of Scientology and serving as the chair of an executive group known variously as the Commodore's Staff Aides, the Aides Council, and the International Board of Scientology Organizations. This body was responsible for overseeing each of the seven organizational subdivisions of the Church of Scientology. She played a central role in the financial management of the Church of Scientology's two principal corporations, the Church of Scientology of California and the United Kingdom Church of Scientology. She was a sole signatory to the Church of Scientology's trust accounts and was also a director of the Operation Transport Corporation (OTC), a company established in 1968 that served as a conduit for cash transfers from the Church of Scientology to L. Ron Hubbard personally; it was characterized by US Tax Court as a "sham corporation" whose role was the enrichment of the Hubbards. She personally handled large quantities of cash on Hubbard's behalf. In the summer of 1972, Hubbard ordered that around $2 million in cash be transferred from OTC bank accounts in Switzerland to the Apollo, where it was stored for the next three years in a locked file cabinet to which Mary Sue Hubbard had the only set of keys. Her salary was relatively modest, amounting to $30,430 ($150,732 in 2007 prices) between 1970 and 1972, though she did also benefit from tens of thousands of dollars a year in living expenses paid for by the Church of Scientology.

The Hubbards moved ashore in March 1972 after three years traveling aboard their ship from port to port in the Mediterranean. They set up home in a villa on the outskirts of the Moroccan city of Tangier. Their sojourn in Morocco ended abruptly in December 1972 when it became clear that the Church of Scientology was about to be indicted in France for fraud, and that Hubbard himself was potentially at risk of being extradited to appear in court if the case went to trial. Hubbard returned to the United States, living under a false name in New York City while Mary Sue and the children remained aboard the Apollo. They were reunited in September 1973, when the possibility of extradition had passed. When it became known in October 1974 that the FBI wished to interview Hubbard, Mary Sue persuaded her husband to avoid going ashore in the United States and the Apollo spent the next year sailing from port to port in the Caribbean.

The Scientology fleet was finally disbanded in 1975, when Hubbard decided to move ashore and establish a "land base" in Florida. He and Mary Sue moved initially to Daytona Beach, Florida in August 1975. They lived there incognito for a few months before moving into an apartment in Dunedin on the west coast of Florida, a few miles north of the town of Clearwater where a Scientology front company had bought the old Fort Harrison Hotel to serve as Scientology's new headquarters. The presence of the Hubbards was meant to be a secret, but in January 1976 he was recognized by a science fiction fan while on a shopping trip. Fearing arrest, he fled to Washington, D.C. with a handful of aides while Mary Sue was left behind in Florida continuing her day-to-day management activities.

In October 1976, Hubbard's eldest son by Mary Sue, Quentin, died by suicide at the age of 22. Mary Sue was grief-stricken, though she later attempted to persuade friends that Quentin had died from encephalitis. Her husband's reaction was one of fury, blaming Quentin for – in his eyes – letting him down

Mary Sue Whipp’s involvement in the Guardian’s Office Scandal

Also see  Main article: Operation Snow White

On July 8, 1977, 134 agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation simultaneously stormed the Church of Scientology's offices in Washington, D.C. and Los Angeles, seizing nearly 50,000 documents and other evidence. The raids were in response to the federal government's discovery that the Church of Scientology had been carrying out a secret and highly illegal "dirty tricks" campaign against government agencies, individuals, and institutions deemed to be enemies of Scientology. A year later, on August 15, 1978, Mary Sue Hubbard was indicted by a grand jury, accused of masterminding a conspiracy against the government in her capacity as head of the Church's Guardian's Office.

Mary Sue was appointed by her husband as Guardian (later Controller) of the Guardian's Office (GO) in March 1966. Established in response to the battering that Scientology was receiving at the time from governments and the media, the GO was tasked with tackling any "threat of great importance" to Scientology. This work took a variety of forms, including public relations, legal actions, and the gathering of "intelligence" on perceived enemies. In the UK alone, it issued hundreds of writs against the media for publishing negative reports on Scientology. It carried out an international campaign against psychiatry, Interpol, the US Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and various other government agencies. Its eventual downfall was to result from the use of illegal methods, ordered and authorized by Mary Sue, to further its campaign.

Mary Sue was promoted to the position of Controller "for life" of the Guardian's Office in January 1969, with one of her subordinates, Jane Kember, being appointed to Mary Sue's old post of Guardian. Mary Sue continued to manage the GO from her various residences aboard the Apollo, and the villa in Tangier. At the order of both of the Hubbards, the GO ran scores of operations against Scientology's enemies. The targets were not just external enemies but dissident Scientologists; in 1969, Mary Sue wrote an order directing the GO to cull information from the confessional folders of Scientologists, breaking a rule of confidence that was supposedly sacrosanct. L. Ron Hubbard was said to have been fully aware of the GO's actions; the US government would later declare him to be an "unindicted co-conspirator" in the GO's illegal activities.

One of their primary targets was the IRS, with which Scientology was engaged in a bitter battle over tax exemptions. As part of a wider strategy codenamed Operation Snow White, the GO succeeded in infiltrating a Scientologist into the IRS to steal files about the government's litigation strategy against Scientology. Mary Sue was closely involved in the strategy; a letter written by her, approving the thefts, was later used in evidence against her. In March 1976, she approved an illegal plan to obtain "non-FOI data" from the government, meaning classified documents not available through the Freedom of Information Act. The GO's agent in the IRS, Michael Meisner, was ordered to obtain all files concerning L. Ron and Mary Sue Hubbard from the IRS Office of International Operations, which he succeeded in infiltrating.

The espionage continued for another three months before Meisner's luck ran out and he was caught in June 1976. Although he bluffed it out initially, a warrant was issued for his arrest in August. The situation was potentially disastrous for the GO and caused panic among the leadership. Mary Sue conspired with her subordinates to concoct alibis for Meisner and work out how to keep him out of the hands of the authorities, keeping him in hiding under a series of false identities. Meisner became increasingly reluctant to cooperate with his GO handlers and in April 1977 he was forcibly taken by GO staff to a new hiding place. He succeeded in escaping in May and turned himself in to the FBI, making a full confession. The raids of July 1977 were the result.

The case eventually came to trial in September 1979, following months of delay occasioned by a fierce rear-guard action by the Church of Scientology's lawyers. On October 8, a deal was struck between the government and the Church that the nine defendants – including Mary Sue – would each plead guilty to one charge of conspiracy if they agreed to sign a written stipulation by the government (essentially a public confession) of what they had done, thus avoiding a lengthy trial. They were formally found guilty on October 26, 1979. Mary Sue and two others received the heaviest penalties, a five-year prison sentence and a $10,000 fine. The other five defendants received lesser sentences and fines. Her husband avoided being indicted but was extremely concerned that Mary Sue would betray him. One of his aides, David Mayo, was dispatched by Hubbard to suggest that Mary Sue might consider a divorce. According to Mayo:

She was really offended and very upset. I thought she was going to blow my head off. I went back several times later to make sure that she wasn't going to rat on him. That's what he was really worried about, that she would reveal during the case that she was only relaying his orders. She had covered up for him so much, and there had been so many opportunities for her to betray him, that she couldn't believe he would think that. She kept saying to me, 'What is he worried about?' I thought to myself, 'My God, I can't tell her.'"

Mary Sue Whipp’s Downfall

Despite her conviction, Mary Sue remained in her post as Controller of the Guardian's Office (GO). There was no shortage of work for her to do; further legal difficulties were anticipated, as there was a New York grand jury investigating Operation Freakout, the GO's campaign against New York author Paulette Cooper, and a Florida grand jury looking into Scientology's activities in Clearwater. Around the end of February 1980, Ron Hubbard went into hiding[52] and remained in seclusion in the small town of Creston, California, for the remaining six years of his life. Mary Sue, who had last met with her husband a few months before his disappearance, never saw or heard from him again.

Hubbard nonetheless remained active in the management of Scientology. The criminal conviction of the GO's top executives triggered a lengthy power struggle at the top of the Church of Scientology, which would lead eventually to Mary Sue being forced into retirement. Under his doctrine he believed that "mistakes do not just happen, somebody causes them, always". A disaster on the scale of the GO criminal case was clearly the result of the activities of someone hostile to Scientology – a Suppressive Person – operating within the GO. He issued an internal directive in 1979 asserting that major failures must result from the presence of multiple Suppressives, who would need to be rooted out along with their "connections".The downfall of the GO led Hubbard to distrust it, believing it to be riddled with Suppressives; he severed his communications with it and put his reliance instead on the Commodore's Messenger Organization (CMO), a group which he had formed in 1968 whose purpose was to relay messages to and from church staff as Ron's personal representatives. The Messengers, who were mostly in their teens and early twenties, became Hubbard's sole means of communication with the Church.

In 1981, the "All Clear Unit" was established within the CMO, tasked with the purpose of making it "All Clear" for Hubbard to come out of hiding. One of its principal figures was David Miscavige, a 21-year-old Messenger who had worked as a cameraman for Hubbard. In May 1981, he met with Mary Sue to tell her that her position as Controller of the Guardian's Office was untenable. She reacted angrily; in a 1992 trial in Canada, Miscavige told the court that she had called him "some pretty nasty names" and threatened him with a large ashtray held close to his face, but she had eventually agreed to step down. She subsequently changed her mind, believing that she had been tricked, and wrote to her husband to complain but received no response. Numerous other Guardian's Office personnel were purged as well.

In July 1981, all remaining GO staff were ordered to join the Sea Org, which would thus secure the CMO's control of the Guardian's Office, and the current Guardian, Jane Kember – who was one of those convicted on conspiracy charges – was to be removed. Mary Sue strongly opposed these changes and reappointed herself Controller, rescinding the CMO's permission to investigate the GO. CMO staff investigating the GO were physically expelled from the Church of Scientology's Los Angeles headquarters, and the Controller's files were guarded day and night. Mary Sue attempted to contact her husband to rescind the CMO's takeover bid but failed, and admitted defeat when the Messengers produced an undated dispatch from Hubbard instructing the GO to be put under the CMO when its senior executives went to prison.[60] She stood down again, being replaced by a South African Scientologist named Gordon Cook,[61] and Jane Kember was replaced by David Gaiman, a British Scientologist.[62]

Miscavige provided a first-hand account of these events, in an affidavit submitted in a case heard in 1994 in California, Church of Scientology International vs. Steven Fishman and Uwe Geertz. He stated:

In 1981, a Church investigation was begun into the activities of the GO. That investigation was prompted by the existence of a number of civil law suits which had been filed at that time against Church of Scientology of California and Mr. Hubbard, and which the GO was supposed to be responsible for handling. Not only was the GO not handling these suits, the GO, and particularly Mary Sue Hubbard, even refused to answer our questions about the suits because they viewed themselves answerable only to persons within the GO ...

Our attempts to get information were thwarted by Mary Sue Hubbard. She informed us that she did not appreciate our investigation of the GO and that if one were needed she would do it. In March 1981 she cut all of our communication lines to the GO, except through herself. It must be noted that Mary Sue Hubbard believed her position as Controller and as the "Founder's wife" to be unassailable and beyond reproach by anyone but Mr. Hubbard – who was not around at the time, a fact that she was well aware of. This, plus her absolute control of the GO, made it difficult for the Church missionaires [Sea Org staff dispatched to achieve a target or specific goal] to get anything done.

[It] was made clear that we had no choice but to overthrow the GO and dismiss everyone who had violated Church policy or the law. These activities ultimately led to a complete disband of the GO. I gathered a couple of dozen of the most proven Church executives from around the world and briefed them on the criminal and other unethical conduct of the GO. Together, we planned a series of missions to take over the GO, investigate it and reform it thoroughly. On July 13, 1981, a matter of weeks after we had uncovered what was going on, and with no advance warning to the GO, a coordinated series of CMO missions were sent out concurrently to take over the GO. However, there were a number of obstacles to overcome before the termination of the GO could be accomplished. Mary Sue Hubbard was still asserting her authority over the GO from her position as Controller.

Mary Sue Hubbard was removed from her post before she went to jail. I know, because I personally met with her and obtained her resignation ... At first, Mary Sue Hubbard was not willing to resign. Eventually she did so. Mary Sue Hubbard and the GO, however, did not simply capitulate. Within a day of Mary Sue Hubbard's resignation, senior GO officials secretly met with Mary Sue Hubbard and conspired to regain control of the GO. Mary Sue Hubbard signed a letter revoking her resignation and condemning the actions of the CMO. Scores of GO staff responded, locking the missionaires out of their premises and were intending to hire armed guards to bar access by me and the other Church officials who had ousted them. I then confronted the mutineers, and persuaded Mary Sue Hubbard to again resign, which ended the last vestige of GO resistance.

Speaking several years later to the St. Petersburg Times newspaper, Miscavige commented:

I knew if it was going to be a physical takeover we're going to lose because they had a couple thousand staff and we (the "messengers") had about 50. That is the amazing part about it.

According to the Church of Scientology, Hubbard himself did not find out about Mary Sue's resignation until five months later.

The convictions of Mary Sue Hubbard and the other GO staff executives were upheld by a federal appeals court in October 1981, and in November seven of those convicted dropped their appeals – but not Mary Sue, who continued to fight the charges. She lost her final appeal in April 1982 and was ordered to begin a prison term in January 1983. The original sentence of five years imprisonment was not carried out, and the court ordered a study of her claimed medical problems, before eventually replacing her sentence with a four-year term of imprisonment, with parole set at 40 months.[69] She was sent to the federal prison in Lexington, Kentucky, to serve her sentence, though in the end, she was released after only a year of imprisonment.

Mary Sue Whipp’s life after the Guardian’s Office

After her resignation from the GO, Mary Sue Hubbard ceased to have any involvement in the management of the Church of Scientology. She did, however, resurface on a few occasions during the remaining years of her life. In 1984 she acted as an "intervenor" in the Church of Scientology of California's lawsuit against Gerry Armstrong. He had worked as an archivist for the Church of Scientology, gathering source material for a planned biography of L. Ron Hubbard. He became disillusioned with Scientology and left the Church, taking with him copies of biographical material, including Hubbard's letters to Mary Sue over the years. The Church sued in 1982 and Mary Sue joined the suit, charging that Armstrong had committed an "invasion of privacy"When the case came to trial in May 1984, she told the Superior Court of Los Angeles County that she had been "mentally raped" and "emotionally distressed" knowing that others had seen the documents. She told the court that she had not seen her husband since January 1980, "but I've written him personal letters ... but I don't believe he's getting them" as he had not replied to them. In June 1984, Judge Paul G. Breckenridge ruled against the Church and Mary Sue Hubbard, criticizing her credibility as a witness:

LRH's wife, Mary Sue Hubbard is also plaintiff herein. On the one hand she certainly appeared to be a pathetic individual. She was forced from her post as controller, convicted and imprisoned as a felon, and deserted by her husband. On the other hand her credibility leaves much to be desired. She struck the familiar pose of not seeing, hearing or knowing any evil. Yet she was the head of the Guardian Office for years and among other things, authored the infamous order "GO 121669" which directed culling of supposedly confidential P.C. files/folders for purposes of internal security ... It is, of course, rather ironic that the person who authorized G.O. 121669 should complain about invasion of privacy. The practice of culling supposedly confidential "P.C. folders or files" to obtain information for purposes of intimidation and or harassment is repugnant. The Guardian Office was no respector of anyone's civil rights, particularly that of privacy.

A month later, in the English High Court of JusticeMr Justice Latey declared in a case in which Scientology was a prominent issue that "Mr Hubbard is a charlatan and worse, as are his wife, Mary Sue Hubbard, and the clique at the top privy to the cult's activities."

In October 1984, Mary Sue filed a $5 million lawsuit against her husband's first son, Ronald DeWolf, accusing him of "massive fraud" for attempting to have his father declared legally dead or mentally incompetent. L. Ron Hubbard died on January 24, 1986, at his ranch near Creston, California.

A Scientology spokesman informed the press that she had been left "a very generous provision" in her husband's will, though the details were kept secret. Mary Sue Hubbard continued to be active in Scientology well into the 1990s; in a 1994 Scientology magazine, she was listed as a "Patron" of the International Association of Scientologists, indicating a donation of $40,000. In December 1995, Hubbard had a mastectomy of her left breast. In 1998 she was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in addition to her existing chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Mary Sue Hubbard died on November 25, 2002, aged 71, at her home in Los Angeles. Her body was cremated two days later and her ashes were scattered at sea off the California coast, where L. Ron Hubbard's ashes had similarly been scattered in January 1986.



Church of Scientology and former member settle long lawsuit

By ASSOCIATED PRESS

JUL 23, 2018 

https://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-scientology-suit-settled-20180723-story.html

The Church of Scientology in Los Angeles. (Richard Vogel / Associated Press)

The Church of Scientology and one of its former members settled a lawsuit Monday that she filed nearly a decade ago alleging she was forced to work long hours as a preteen and was coerced to have an abortion at 17.

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Mark Mooney met privately with attorneys for the church and plaintiff Laura Ann DeCrescenzo, then announced the settlement in court. Trial was scheduled to begin Aug. 13.

John Blumberg, an attorney for DeCrescenzo, said terms of the deal are confidential. Attorneys for Scientology didn’t immediately return calls seeking comment.

The church was a defendant along with its Religious Technology Center. DeCrescenzo’s allegations included forced abortion, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, unfair business practices, and wage and hour violations.

Blumberg said he didn’t know why the defendants decided to settle, but actions by their lawyers in court indicated that they didn't want the case to go trial.

Plaintiffs’ attorneys subpoenaed Scientology leader David Miscavige, but church attorneys sought to quash orders for him to appear, Blumberg said.

“Based on their actions in trying to prevent David Miscavige from testifying, it would lead one to the inescapable conclusion that preventing an order he testify was very important to them,” Blumberg said.

According to a sworn declaration by DeCrescenzo, she began volunteering to do church work at age 6 or 7 in Orange County. She said that at age 7, she was part of a Scientology group organized to picket the same courthouse where trial of her lawsuit would take place, according to City News Service.

She said the demonstration showed the church’s ability to “go to every length to bring down people who filed lawsuits” against the institution, whose followers include actors Tom Cruise and John Travolta.

“I believed that if I took any action against the Church of Scientology — whether filing a lawsuit or even speaking negatively about the Church of Scientology — that I would be subjected to severe retribution, including significant financial penalties and loss of my family,” DeCrescenzo stated.

When DeCrescenzo was 12, she was recruited to join the organization’s elite Sea Org, which she said is responsible for overseeing the delivery of the religion worldwide.

DeCrescenzo alleged that she was initially required to work daily from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. and that two more hours were later added to her workday. DeCrescenzo says she remained with Sea Org until 2004, when she was 25.

She says she was told she could not leave Sea Org and was released from duty only after she pretended to attempt suicide by swallowing bleach.

DeCrescenzo alleged she became pregnant in February 1996 and was persuaded by the church to have an abortion to show her allegiance to Sea Org and its long hours.

The case was previously dismissed by another judge, but a three-justice panel of the 2nd District Court of Appeal reversed the decision in June 2011 and sent it back to the judge to determine whether the church was permitted to raise the statute of limitations as a defense.

The trial was scheduled to be conducted in two phases, beginning with a non-jury trial before Mooney to determine whether DeCrescenzo acted reasonably in waiting so long to file her lawsuit. If he had ruled in her favor, a jury would have decided any liability and damages.

The Unbreakable Miss Lovely: How the Church of Scientology tried to destroy Paulette Cooper (w/ Q&A)



Carl Wong
Published on May 20, 2015

Introduction by Jim Underdown: 0:00 Tony Ortega and Paulette Cooper: 5:43 Q&A from audience: 40:04 In 1971, a magazine freelancer in New York named Paulette Cooper came out with her first book, “The Scandal of Scientology”, and it was the first popular book that gave the public a view into this secretive organization. She nearly paid for it with her life. What even Paulette didn't know at the time was the extent that Scientology and its founder, L. Ron Hubbard, would go to destroy someone it perceived as an enemy. By 1973, Paulette had been framed in an elaborate plot involving fake bomb-threat letters, and she faced 15 years in federal prison if convicted. Newly unearthed documents show that by that time, Scientology had kept her under tight surveillance for several years and proposed many ways to destroy her reputation and life. She was finally exonerated after the FBI raided Scientology in 1977 and found those documents, which referred to her by the code name "Miss Lovely." Eleven top Scientology officials went to prison after that raid, but more than 30 years later, Scientology is still around -- and so is Paulette. In his new, and first, book, “The Unbreakable Miss Lovely”, journalist Tony Ortega tells Paulette's story in full for the first time, with eyewitness accounts and new documents which describe the full extent of her ordeal -- and her continued fight against a group now seriously in decline. For the launch of the book, Paulette will be appearing with the author at a limited number of events as they talk about various parts of her life depicted in the book, from her childhood survival of the Holocaust to her much calmer life in Florida with her husband Paul, as well as the latest developments in the controversies facing Scientology today. Ortega is the executive editor of The Raw Story, a progressive political news site. From 2007 to 2012, he was editor in chief of The Village Voice, and he's been investigating and writing about Scientology since 1995, when he was a reporter for the Phoenix New Times. He also wrote for or edited weekly newspapers in Los Angeles, Kansas City, and Fort Lauderdale. Originally from Los Angeles, he lives in New York and maintains a breaking news website about Scientology news, "The Underground Bunker." He is also featured in “Going Clear”, Alex Gibney's documentary about Scientology, which first aired on HBO in March. Recorded on May 17, 2015 at the Center for Inquiry in Los Angeles, California.

Spurned attorneys look for answers in Scientology case

Gilbert Garcia  Aug. 29, 2017 

https://www.expressnews.com/news/news_columnists/gilbert_garcia/article/Spurned-attorneys-look-for-answers-in-Scientology-12159669.php

— Monique Rathbun (right) and her husband Mark "Marty" Rathbun (left) of Ingleside, Texas sit in their home Thursday July 7, 2011 while discussing Mark Rathbun's involvement with the Church of Scientology. Mark Rathbun has become a critic of the views held by the organization of the group and says a group claiming to be documentary 

Why did Marty Rathbun flip?

That was the question that hovered over the legal proceedings in a Bexar County courtroom Tuesday morning.

It’s the question that has gripped Scientology watchers for more than a year, a question that compelled a team of three high-powered local attorneys to file a petition last month against Rathbun, the former second-in-command of the controversial Church of Scientology, and his wife, Monique.

Marty Rathbun spent 27 years in the church. During that time, he was known for being a hardball operator. For example, Joseph Yanny, a former Scientology lawyer, said in 1988 that Rathbun told him to steal the medical records of a Scientology critic from the Betty Ford Center for blackmail material.

By Rathbun’s own admission, he arranged to tap the phone of actor Tom Cruise’s then-wife, Nicole Kidman (a Scientology skeptic), as part of an effort by church leader David Miscavige to keep Cruise in the Scientology fold by breaking up the Cruise-Kidman marriage.

Rathbun left the church in 2004, and after hiding out for a few years, emerged as one of Scientology’s most prominent and caustic critics. In response, church loyalists camped out next to the Rathbuns’ home in the South Texas coastal town of Ingleside, videotaped their every move and made their lives’ miserable.

The pranks allegedly included the mailing of an adult toy to Monique’s place of employment and the sending of flowers to one of Monique’s female co-workers, with a romantic note made to appear as though it came from Monique.

After moving to Bulverde in 2012 to escape the alleged stalking, the Rathbuns hired attorneys Ray Jeffrey (the former mayor of Bulverde), Elliott Cappuccio and Marc Wiegand to file a harassment lawsuit against the church. The lawsuit offered not only the possibility of a payout from the church but also the hope that the elusive Miscavige could be forced to testify.

Then, without warning (and without cause), Monique and Marty fired their lawyers in January 2016. Four months later, the couple dropped its lawsuit against the church.

Jeffrey, Cappuccio and Wiegand smelled something foul.

They couldn’t help but notice that Marty — after years of harsh attacks against Miscavige and the church — started softening the tone of his blog in early 2016 and began to redirect his fire at what he called the ASC (Anti-Scientology Cult). They found it strange that in 2015 the Rathbuns, without informing their lawyers, moved back to Ingleside, where they somehow found the means to purchase a home appraised at $264,000.

They wondered what Monique meant when she said, in a motion to dismiss the case, “My husband and I have effectively achieved the primary purpose that the lawsuit was originally intended to serve, by our own independent efforts.”

The Rathbuns’ former attorneys had worked for 2½ years on a contingency basis, meaning they didn’t earn a penny from their efforts. They suspected that Marty and Monique dropped the lawsuit (and their criticisms of Scientology) in exchange for a secret payment from the church.

So Jeffrey and co. did something that lawyers hate to do: They initiated legal action against a former client. It’s something that Jeffrey says he has never done in 32 years of legal practice.

The attorneys’ petition is a request for an order that will allow them to take depositions from the Rathbuns and comb through the couple’s financial records. It would allow the attorneys to see what kind of case they have before they commit to a lawsuit against the couple.

Jeffrey stood Tuesday in front of District Court Judge Karen Pozza and told her, “Your honor, you didn’t know it when you woke up this morning, but you’re dipping your toe into the world of Scientology-related litigation.”

He added: “It sure looks likely that some sort of a settlement was done behind our backs.”

The Rathbuns’ new attorney, Richard Reynolds, tried to get Pozza to throw out Jeffrey’s 12 exhibits, but the judge admitted all of them. At the end of the hearing, she asked Jeffrey and his co-counsel to narrow the scope of their request and said she would come back with a ruling on Thursday.

It was a low-key hearing on a procedural matter in a near-empty courtroom. But the drama was unmistakable. For decades, the Church of Scientology has been an institution driven by paranoia and the intimidation of anyone who attempts to penetrate its wall of obfuscation.

Jeffrey and co. are trying to knock some bricks out of that wall.

I was recently at an ICSA meeting in Montreal and sat down with my friend, Karen Pressley, to have a discussion about issues relating to Scientology and the recent exit of Katie Holmes from the group and her marriage to top recruiter and promoter, Tom Cruise. We both have done multiple media interviews but are frustrated that they take short sound bites, and do not allow us to do the depth of commenting that would truly be informative. You judge for yourself. Karen's teaches an innovative writing workshop that especially is valuable for former cult members to remember, unpack and work through their experiences in a healthy way.

N.B. We have contacted the London branch of the Church of Scientology to send a representative, but have not had a reply from them. We’ll have an open chair on stage if they change their mind. US journalist Tony Ortega, author of an acclaimed biography, The Unbreakable Miss Lovely: How the Church of Scientology tried to destroy Paulette Cooper, John Sweeney, the BBC Panorama journalist and author of The Church Of Fear: Inside the Weird World of Scientology and the publisher of both books, Humfrey Hunter, explain what it is like to question the word and the worth of the Church that likes to wear dark glasses. Tony Ortega has written about Scientology as a journalist for nearly 20 years, and began working with Paulette Cooper about her life story while he was still at the Voice. Ortega appears in Alex Gibney’s HBO-produced documentary about Scientology, Going Clear, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. John Sweeney is a writer and journalist. His philosophy as a reporter is: ‘I poke crocodiles, if crocodiles they be, in the eye with a stick.’ He’s helped free seven people falsely accused of killing their babies and reported on wars, revolutions and trouble in 80 countries, but he’s most famous for doing an impression of an exploding tomato while investigating the Church of Scientology. Humfrey Hunter previously published John Sweeney’s book, The Church of Fear: Inside the Weird World of Scientology, and last year brought Russell Miller’s landmark biography of Scientology’s founder, Bare-Faced Messiah: The True Story of L. Ron Hubbard, back into print for the first time in 27 years.

ASIC PRINCIPLE
THE A-R-C TRIANGLE
Affinity—Reality—Communication

https://www.freedommag.org/magazine/201702-the-data-demon/basic-principle/the-arc-triangle.html

IN THIS COLUMN 

We present a fundamental of the Scientology religion researched and developed by L. Ron Hubbard.

The Scientology religion, founded by L. Ron Hubbard, offers a precise path leading to a complete and certain understanding 
for oneself of one’s true spiritual nature and one’s relationship to self, family, groups, mankind, all life forms, the material universe, the spiritual universe and the Supreme Being.

A tool of considerable importance in Scientology and one that greatly assists interpersonal relationships is the principle of affinity, 
reality and communication. These three interdependent factors may be expressed in a triangle—the A-R-C Triangle.
The first corner of the triangle is affinity, which is the degree of liking or affection or lack of it. It is the feeling of love or  liking for something or someone.
The second corner of the A-R-C Triangle is reality, which could be defined as “that which appears to be.” Reality is fundamentally agreement. 

What we agree to be real is real.
The third corner of the triangle is communication, defined as “the interchange of ideas or objects between two people.” 
In human relationships this corner is more important than the other two corners of the triangle.
The interrelationship of the triangle becomes apparent at once when one asks, “Have you ever tried to talk to an angry man?” 
Without a high degree of liking and without some basis of agreement, there is no communication. 
Without communication and some basis of emotional response, there can be no reality. 
Without some basis for agreement and communication, there can be no affinity.
Thus these three things form a triangle. Unless there are two corners of a triangle, there cannot be a third corner. 
Desiring any corner of the triangle, one must include the other two.
The A-R-C Triangle is not equilateral. Affinity and reality are much less important than communication. 
It might be said that the triangle begins with communication, which brings into existence affinity and reality.
Great importance is placed in Scientology on the factor of communication, as Scientologists know that communication is 
the bridge to higher states of awareness and happiness.

The Decline (and Probable Fall) of the Scientology Empire - Jim Lippard

NCASVideo

Published on Mar 6, 2013

Jim Lippard spoke on the history of the Church of Scientology, how it has collided with the Internet and lost control of its secrets and its membership, and is now seeing an accelerating decline as its top members leave for new alternatives. Jim Lippard founded the Phoenix Skeptics in 1985, and co-founded the Phoenix Area Skeptics Society in 2011. He's written articles and book chapters on skeptical topics, including two articles in Skeptic magazine on Scientology, "Scientology vs. the Internet" in 1995 (co-authored with Jeff Jacobsen) and "The Decline (and Probable Fall) of the Scientology Empire" in 2012. He also contributed to Gordon Stein's Encyclopedia of the Paranormal and Joe Nickell's Psychic Sleuths. Video notes starting at 13:50: The Fraser Mansion, though referred to by Scientology as the "founding church" from the 1970s to 2010, wasn't the original building. The original building, at 1812 19th St. NW, is now a museum called the L. Ron Hubbard House (though his house was across the street), which the church acquired in 2004. The Fraser Mansion is now Scientology's National Affairs Office. The first use of the name "Church of Scientology" was by the Church of Scientology founded in Camden, N.J. in Dec. 1953; the first Church of Scientology corporation was in Los Angeles (Feb. 1954, which became the Church of Scientology of California in 1956), the Church of Scientology of Arizona was incorporated that same year. Hubbard's organization while he lived in Phoenix was the Hubbard Association of Scientologists, International (HASI), founded in Sep. 1952. All HASI assets were folded into the Church of Scientology of California in 1966. (Views expressed are those of the speaker and do not necessarily represent the views of the National Capital Area Skeptics.)

Monique Rathbun is back in court today in New Braunfels, Texas for her harassment lawsuit against the Church of Scientology and its leader, David Miscavige. Several different issues may come up for discussion today. Monique filed a notice to depose David Miscavige on January 29, and Scientology responded with a motion to quash the deposition. Scientology also asked Judge Dib Waldrip to reconsider his order allowing Monique to depose Miscavige. But the main action today may be Monique's motion for sanctions. She's asking Judge Waldrip to punish Scientology because its employees, she says, have been dishonest in depositions and because Scientology has not turned over evidence.

I have been searching around for more information on what I heard in a YouTube video with Jon Atack and Steve Hassan. Jon talks about Hubbard raping children but I can find nothing on the net about this. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
Here is the video below. Jon talks about Hubbards pedophilia at 20:39.

Truly disturbing.

SCIENTOLOGY & THE CIA
FEBRUARY 27, 2016 MARK HACKARD

This presentation was read by Aleksandr Leonidovich Dvorkin, president of the Irinaeus of Lyons Center for Religious Research Studies, on January 26th, 2016, at a conference run by the Orthodox St. Tikhon University for the Humanities. (Translator’s note: While we wouldn’t claim that the Church of Scientology is an integral element of the US Intelligence Community, Dvorkin’s lecture is an excellent expose of the nexus between the Western power structure, its intelligence apparatus and dangerous cults).

The topic of Scientology’s connection to the CIA became commonplace long ago. It’s mentioned in a mass of articles, interviews, and television programs. But when I referred to this in passing during a conversation with one journalist several months ago, he took interest: do I have irrefutable evidence of or clues to this connection? Could I, so to say, point to a “smoking gun?”

The question interested me, and I decided to try and collect materials on this topic. So can we bring irrefutable evidence?


It’s understandable that if I could point to a “smoking gun,” my name would be Edward Snowden, and I would be hunted by US intelligence services, who (like any intelligence services) never disclose the names of organizations that cooperate with them, and for obvious reasons. However, open information on when the US government began to openly and publicly lobby the interests of Scientology (this occurred in 1993) could compose an entire arsenal of smoking guns. It knew full well about the cult’s activity in legally and illegally collecting information on various people and organizations.

From documents published today, we know that already in 1957 the CIA began investigating the activities of L. Ron Hubbard and Scientology. But the collated data that was the result of the investigation has still not been published up to this time. I don’t think we should expect the publication of these materials in the near future.

All his life, Hubbard himself was quite actively and constantly fascinated with two things: occultism and intelligence activities. For example, as a still wholly young man he entered the Rosicrucian order, undertook occult seances, and experienced certain otherworldly meetings.

Already as head of the Scientology cult, with pride he called Aleister Crowley, the most famous Satanist of the twentieth century, his “very good friend.” We can bring a multitude of other facts, but that wouldn’t fit into the parameters of the current presentation. I’ll remind you that John Atack’s excellent article “Hubbard and Occultism” was published in my Russian translation. [1]

Scientology’s official biography of the cult’s founder furiously denies Hubbard’s ties to occultism, but then it exaggerates his special relationship with the intelligence services on a cosmic scale. And so with pride the Scientologists inform us that during the war Hubbard worked in the US Office of Naval Intelligence (ONI), where he heroically proved himself in “catching foreign spies and rendering aid to US forces surrounded by the enemy on the island of Bataan.” As a matter of fact, we know that while working in ONI, Hubbard was just a rank-and-file clerk in the mail department, where he mainly censored the correspondence of servicemen – there’s certainly nothing heroic in that. Not once during the entire war did he take part in combat action.

Scientologists also invented the legend justifying Hubbard’s postwar time in the Pasadena lodge of the Satanic Ordo Templi Orientis (the “Order of the Eastern Temple” headed by Crowley) and his fascination with sex magic rituals, which he conducted together with lodge head Jack Parsons. According to the cult’s legend, Hubbard, you see, was sent into the Satanic cult by a certain intelligence agency as a mole and destroyed it from within. There is no need to speak about this version not withstanding factual criticism.

Hubbard’s enthusiasm for occultism also left its mark in the symbols of Scientology he and his followers developed.

Here, for example, is a Scientology flyer published during Hubbard’s life, called 

“The Golden Dawn” (so was called the occult lodge whence came Aleister Crowley).

Here is a contemporary audio and video publication of Hubbard’s works, also called “The Golden Dawn.”

And here’s what a speech by the current head of Scientology, David Miscavige, looks like. The occult symbology of a previously thought-out stage interior doesn’t need any clarification. Temple columns, the theme of “Golden Dawn and the Moon” (an extremely widespread occult symbol) over the “high priest.”

Here is the Scientology cross well-known to all, borrowed from the deck of Tarot cards developed by Crowley. I’ll remind you that this is in fact a crossed-out cross. Also pay attention to another detail: the eight-pointed star, on which is set the image of the cross. We’ll come back to it again.

[Scientology Aleister Crowley Tarot Card] The rose-and-cross Tarot card developed by Satanist Aleister Crowley. Note the likeness with the Scientology cross.

Now we will note that there is something in common between Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard and the US Intelligence Community – a passion for occultism.
For a start, here are a few facts:

In 1989 in London former CIA officer Miles Copeland’s memoirs, The Game Player, were released, in which he told of a scheme set into action during the early-mid 1950s by his colleague Bob Mandelstam. The scheme was called “Occultism in High Places.” Its idea was simple: since some leaders and heads of governments had the habit of consulting with astrologers and other occult advisors, American intelligence officers were to “work with” these occultists and make them conduits of their agency’s influence.

This scheme worked, for example, when a “clairvoyant” sent by the agents convinced Ghana’s President Kwame Nkrumah to make a visit to China, during which a coup inspired by the CIA overthrew the absent leader. In Copeland’s words, the US intelligence community influenced Indonesian President Sukarno “quite solidly” through occult “seers” and “fortune tellers.”

Mandelstam also used the spiritual-political movement “Moral Rearmament,” which, according to Copeland, gave agents the opportunity to influence not only African and Asian political figures through secret channels, but also European leaders. It is there that Copeland also mentions a special agreement, which, in his words, the CIA concluded with Scientology, although he is silent about what was contained therein. Inasmuch as I was able to find out, no one aside from the chatty Copeland mentions this agreement (clearly established in the 1960’s) in open sources.

Copeland tells of another interesting case:

We sent into the Scientology cult our agent, who under the direction of Ron Hubbard himself became “clear,” but then he demanded and started to receive ever more “monetary compensation for operational expenditures,” which together with his savings he gave over to Dianetics.

So we will hardly find out who was ultimately manipulating whom: the CIA Scientology, or Scientology the CIA.

In the same way the work of US intelligence officers with a variety of occultists hasn’t gone unnoticed: we can presume that influence disseminated to both sides, and someone among the intelligence officers began practicing occultism. The set of images used by the secret services gives certain bases for making such presumptions concrete.

We see the same eight-pointed star, just like the one placed on the Scientology cross. Let’s return to the image of the Scientology cross. Its crossing out can also be viewed as the union of four daggers. And so the daggers cross out the symbol of Christianity. But the dagger is a famous symbol of intelligence, and precisely the star of the Intelligence Community is composed of them.

In the center of the Intelligence Community’s star is a rose with five petals. But this – the five-petaled rose – is the symbol of the Rosicrucian order. Is that a coincidence? Hardly: after all, even the image of the sharp leaflets between the petals is repeated.

And then there’s the most interesting thing: we’ll read the description of the seal that is found on the official site of the US Office of the Director of National Intelligence.
The eight points of the polar star symbolize the six departments and two independent agencies of the Intelligence Community. They are combined with the 15 stars around the circumference [sic] represent the elements of other agencies that are also part of the Intelligence Community [3].

The problem is that there aren’t 15 stars. There are 16. Count them yourself. So what then is the unnamed sixteenth organization, an element of which is part of the US Intelligence Community? Can we build suppositions?
Now we will finally bring some circumstantial evidence that can easily be found in open sources.

At the beginning of the 1990’s, the Greek police executed raids in the Athens Scientology office and confiscated a multitude of the cult’s internal documents, a part of which were published. In some of them are contained references to assistance that the CIA rendered to Scientology’s foreign branches.

[Scientology Greece Document] Scientology internal document on CIA cooperation, confiscated by Greek police.

Already in 2001 in the magazine Le Monde Diplomatique was published an article by the famous journalist Bruno Fuscero “Cults: a US Trojan Horse for Europe” [4], in which he quite reasonably wrote on the use of a whole set of cults, including Scientology, by US intelligence and diplomacy. Despite the sensational character of the article, no lawsuits followed after it.

Hardly anyone can deny that the US State Department lobbies the interests of Scientology in various countries: France; Germany; Italy; Greece; Russia; Hungary, etc. Even among the published Wikileaks documents, a report slipped by that after US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright’s arrival in Germany, German Scientologists were invited to the US Embassy for a briefing. Inasmuch as I know, no other cult enjoys such attention and such privileges from the United States government. I also understand that nothing is given for free in this world. So what can Scientology offer the US government that the latter would so actively lobby the interests of a comparatively not large cult with far from the most spotless reputation, and whose secret doctrine the whole world laughs at?

One of Scientology’s main objectives is the collection and storage of a large mass of information, so that with its help it can compromise and establish control over whomever: from a simple member of the cult who has gone astray to the powerful of this world, control of whom would give unlimited possibilities. 25 years ago the former head of the FBI’s Los Angeles Field Office said that Scientology “has one of the most effective intelligence services, which can even compete with the FBI.” From that time the cult’s capital has increased several times over, if not exponentially. It can afford to hire many more lawyers and private detectives, which significantly raises the cult’s potential for carrying out complex special operations.

Now a little history. In 1993, after a 25-year war it waged against Scientology, the US Internal Revenue Service de factosurrendered: having conducted secret negotiations with cult head David Miscavige, it signed an agreement with the group, according to which it recognized Scientology and all related organizations a religion and totally freed them from taxes. Namely after this agreement the State Department began to lobby Scientology’s interests in all the world’s countries. Moreover, a secret protocol was attached to the agreement (a new one, not the one mentioned by Copeland), and it hasn’t been published to this day. What could the content be?

Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk (who many years ago, as director of Aval Bank in Kiev, possibly underwent several Scientology courses) is an example of a man about whom personal information would be extremely interesting not only to Scientology, but also to the US Intelligence Community. I think that we could continue a list of people occupying high posts in various countries, people who are of interest to US intelligence, for a sufficiently long time. And if Scientology has such information and is ready to share it, then why wouldn’t an intelligence service use such an opportunity?

Yet in what way can the cult obtain such data? Scientology’s information collection is generated through several methods.

The first of them is auditing, presented by the cult as a kind of confession. But during this “confession,” everything that a person – in a state of light hypnotic trance – might report over a three-to-four hour session is picked up on audio and video and kept forever (I’ll remind you that this is conducted with the help of the so-called “E-Meter,” i.e. a primitive lie detector). Those who conduct the auditing are not obliged to keep the secrets of this “confession.” Rather, they collect the most intimate information about a person in order to turn him into an obedient slave. Let’s recall that during a raid of the Taganskaya Scientology “Ideal Org” by Moscow law enforcement, spy equipment for audio and video recording was found built into the walls of the auditing room. By the standards of the cult, such equipment should be present in all auditing facilities.

The second method is the “targeted” collection of information on a person who interests the cult. Specialists are hired for this, and specially instructed cult members help them. Either compromising materials are found, or they are fabricated. Among those who interest the cult could be famous personalities; figures in show business; law enforcement; officers of the security services; political figures; and of course, enemies of the cult.

We can and must emphasize that both methods of collecting and using information are flagrantly amoral. The cult uses the obtained data for self-advancement and self-expansion. I wonder, has it ever crossed the minds of American intelligence officers that receiving such information from the cult and using it is deeply amoral? Scientologists themselves think that the opportunity to control people in such a way serves a higher goal that brings the cult’s victory closer, meaning the victory of “good” in all the world. But if US intelligence, in no way believing in Scientology’s good and progressivism, finds it necessary and permissible to use this information, then we need to honestly admit that it considers getting information acquired by a quite dubious organization through deceit, bribery, theft, torture, and confidential confessions normal.

Finally, even if we believe that Scientology has absolutely no ties with any of the agencies of the US Intelligence Community, it could still absolutely and unmistakably be called a foreign intelligence organization active in the Russian Federation. And this intelligence organization sends personal and deeply confidential data on Russian citizens to its headquarters in the United States. That means we must approach such an organization in corresponding fashion.

But of course, it seems to me that we can claim with an enormous degree of confidence that Scientology has a multitude of connections with the US Intelligence Community. The evidence I’ve brought forth in this presentation, quite weighty if circumstantial, indicates precisely that. Almost two years ago, US President Barack Obama publicly announced that international religious freedom (read: its American version) is a vital factor of US national security [5]. I this that this announcement, striking in its cynical frankness, just admitted what had been an obvious fact for years. And we can probably suppose which organization hides behind the unnamed sixteenth star on the US Intelligence Community’s coat of arms.​

In 1937, Aldous Huxley moved to Hollywood. He earned a substantial income as a Hollywood screenwriter. 52
Aldous Huxley says he was friends with Ron Hubbard. That friendship obviously began in Hollywood in 1937, when both writers were serving under William Wiseman in Hollywood. Huxley and Hubbard were MI 6 agents.
Huxley had written a book promoting World Government. Later in time, Huxley headed a covert operation to subvert America’s youth with hallucinogenic drugs. When Huxley wrote a book promoting hallucinogenic drugs, Hubbard recommended that Scientologists should read it.

Stephen Pearl Andrews (March 22, 1812 – May 21, 1886) was an American individualist anarchist, linguist, political philosopher, outspoken abolitionist and author of several books on the labor movement and individualist anarchism.

Ian MacBean – MI 6 British intelligence agent

Here are some quotes from that book:

Scientology is therefore Universology developed in the spirit of the Exact Sciences, and is wholly new in kind. It is the Core or Centre and the most distinctive Department of Universology… (page 37)
Scientology will re-assert and vindicate… Spiritualistic Realities and Tendencies…
(page 146)
It will be the supreme triumph of Scientology, the Exact Branch of this new Universal Science, to exhibit in Diagram, and by illustrative object-teaching, all the Root-thoughts of which the Human Mind is capable… (page 165)
The same year that Andrews started the idea of Scientology, the Cecil family took up the idea.
In 1871, Arthur Balfour and his in-laws form a private group to study paranormal phenomena.

Psychiatrist Josef Breuer was treating Bertha Pappenheim in the summer of 1880.
He found that when she recalled a series of memories back to a traumatic memory, one of her many symptoms would disappear. Breuer drew two important conclusions from his work with Bertha: that her symptoms were the result of thoughts that were buried in her unconscious and that when these thoughts were spoken and became conscious, the symptoms disappeared.
Breuer called this catharsis therapy. It was also called abreactive therapy and talking therapy.
Catharsis or abreactive therapy –
The process of bringing repressed ideas and feelings into consciousness.
It is the reliving of past traumatic incidents buried in the subconscious.

Sigmund Freud began using this cathartic treatment under Breuer’s guidance.

In 1882, Arthur Balfour created the Society for Psychical Research. They conducted scientific research into mental and spiritual phenomena. They developed the subjects of Dianetics and Scientology. All the basic mental, spiritual, and religious ideas in Dianetics and Scientology were developed by the SPR, before L. Ron Hubbard was even born. That includes the therapy used.
Sigmund Freud was a member of the Society for Psychical Research. The SPR also conducted extensive research into catharsis therapy. The subjects of Dianetics and Scientology were tied together from the beginning and both subjects were underneath the Cecil family, which means underneath British intelligence.
When Ron Hubbard was a teenager he was recruited by British intelligence.


Thereafter he executed one intelligence assignment after the other for his entire life.
They groomed Hubbard to be the front man for their subjects of Dianetics and Scientology. 


You can read about that in Scientology Roots Chapter Seven – The First Scientologists and Their Masters.
The common denominator that explains all of Hubbard’s actions in life ….

Ron Hubbard told Scientologists to support the British New World Order.
He advocates the worst sociopaths in the world having direct control over the life of every individual person.

The basic technology of radio-based detection and tracking evolved independently and with great secrecy in a number of nations during the second half of the 1930s. At the start of the war in Europe in September 1939, both Great Britain and Germany had begun the actual military use of these systems. In Great Britain this technology was called RDF, standing for Range and Direction Finding, while in Germany the name Funkmessgerät (radio measuring device) was often used.
Little known factoid: The acronym RADAR (for RAdio Detection And Ranging) was coined by the U.S. Navy in 1940, and the subsequent name “radar” was soon widely used.
Hubbard’s mission was to explore not only what the problem areas were, and if the cause could be established beyond simple storm conditions, as well as testing ideas on how to improve range, clarity versus loss of signal, and tracking magnetic interference “zones” largely caused by polar magnetism and to some degree, in certain locations, from solar flares commonly known as “Northern Lights”. Russia’s alliance with Germany, combined with Japanese incursions in the North-east coastline of China made Alaska suddenly very key to the United States and Britain, militarily.
Ketchikan, where Hubbard ended up, was a particularly key industrial and manufacturing city, but back in the time when radio was still quite fledgling, (the 1930’s) it suffered from severe problems with radio communications, largely due to extreme weather conditions and other more confounding influences. This, of course, made radio-direction finding for ship and plane navigation (and submarines) a very urgent problem.
Using his “intimates” at the Explorer’s Club, he carried an Explorer’s Club Flag (#105) which provided the first layer of intelligence cover – with the commonly used British “I’m on expedition” cover.
He called it “Alaskan Radio-Experimental Expedition”, with the outer stated purpose being to update the U.S. Coast Pilot guide regarding the coastlines of Alaska and B.C. Although he did that, that’s not the real reason, as we already covered.
When he tied up his sloop, the Magician, at Thomas Basin in Ketchikn on Friday, August 31, 1940 what he told other people was that his purpose in coming to Alaska “was two-fold, one to win a bet and another to gather material for a novel of Alaskan salmon fishing”. (The Ketchikan Chronicle).

So, he also employed the well-used by British intelligence agents (like Somerset Maugham) “writer” intelligence cover and even the “just here for the fishing” one! (also known as a shore story).

Evidence That L. Ron Hubbard Was Working For British Intelligence In 1940, 1941, and 1942
 https://mikemcclaughry.wordpress.com/2017/11/08/evidence-that-l-ron-hubbard-was-working-for-british-intelligence-in-1940-1941-and-1942
November 8th, 2017- McClaughry
It was on June 11, 1940 that William Stephenson arrived in New York to start the British Security Coordination to get America into the war – WWII. He arrived aboard the SS Britannic with John Arthur Reed Pepper (his SIS man) and family in tow.
The first order of business was getting a “control” point for Secret Intelligence work. Someone who was fully aboard the British agenda and more importantly, would do whatever the British told him to do. Vincent Astor, with numerous familial connections into British high society, was chosen to hold that function while a more permanent arrangement was being worked on. (the COI, then the OSS).
Every step of the way was controlled by the British.
Stephenson told President Roosevelt, Roosevelt told the Secretary of the Navy, who then told the Chief of Naval Operations that Astor would now be unofficially in charge of ALL intelligence work in the New York area, including the Office of Naval Intelligence in New York City. This is the Third Naval District (abbreviation – 3ND).
No questions asked – that’s the way it IS kind of thing.
This also means that Astor is in charge of any agent selection/recommendations etc. in the New York area both then and when the 1939 Foreign Espionage function was transferred to the Foreign Intelligence Branch (OP-16-F-9) in early 1941.
The New York area was basically the who’s who in intelligence. Anywhere from William Donovan to David K.E. Bruce to John Riheldaffer (head of OP-16-F-9) to people like L. Ron Hubbard.

L. Ron Hubbard had already connected up with the Astor “secret” intelligence/naval reserve organization called the ROOM, and because of those connections had gained entrance to the Explorer’s Club of New York – being officially made a member in February of 1940.
Astor is actually even referred to as the “British Intelligence” section at the 3rd naval district, as I am about to show you.
There are a number of other significant events in the British intelligence community occurring right in this time frame. You can peruse a timeline of some of the main ones in my post: Straightening Out The Timeline Around Hubbard’s Intelligence Background – Plus a few other things.
Right after Astor was ensconced in the Third Naval District, Hubbard was sent on a naval intelligence mission for Stephenson and the BSC (who is who was actually controlling Astor).
William Stephenson told President Roosevelt, and Roosevelt told his cabinet, that they needed to recognize the great potential (and threat in enemy hands) of radio-based detection and tracking, and began the development of ship- and land-based systems. The first of these were fielded by the U.S. Navy in early 1940, hence Hubbard’s involvement as a civilian intelligence agent (remember the ROOMs heavy ties to the U.S. navy).

Hubbard was being engaged to assist the British (through his connections to Astor’s ROOM and its corresponding Explorer’s Club members) in the Alaskan deployment of Range and Direction Finding.

Note: The fact that he was doing this for British Intelligence and he was knowledgeable of MI6 agent Alistair Crowley, appears to have had no small amount of bearing on naming his ship for the trip – The Magician. Crowley’s intelligence cover throughout his career was that of an “occult magician”.

Joseph Cheesman Thompson of the US Navy and Consuelo Andrew Seoane of the US Army, served together as spies in Japan starting in 1909. They pretended they were studying coastal reptiles and amphibians, but they were actually charting possible invasion routes and counting all the Japanese fortifications and naval guns that were part of Japan’s coastal defenses. Their espionage work went on from there into places other than Japan. In a subsequent assignment, Thompson was sent into China because of the Boxer rebellion there.

It's been more than a decade since Shelly Miscavige, the wife of Scientology's revered yet controversial leader David Miscavige, has been seen alive or in public.
The last people to see Shelly alive all agree that she vanished in disturbing circumstances 13 years ago.
Many former members of the highly-secretive church allege Shelly's husband David would be one of the few people to know where his wife, the high Priestess of Scientology, may be.
In a new investigation by 60 Minutes, the current affairs program travelled to the US and to the gates of Scientology's most secure compound to ask, where is Shelly Miscavige?
The church has previously claimed Ms Miscavige has gone to ground, working for Scientology behind the scenes while her husband runs things publicly.

Others, including Ms Miscavige's former friend Leah Remini, fear for her safety.
Ron Miscavige, the father of David and a member of Scientology for 42 years, is terrified for his daughter-in-law.
"Shelly, she'll never be free," Mr Miscavige tells 60 Minutes.
The church, in its response to the programme, said show was passing off "fiction and salacious gossip as truth".
It's alleged Shelly was locked away by her husband more than a decade ago, less than a year after the high-profile wedding of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes in 2005.
Through tears, Ron admits it would be easy for the church to have done exactly that.

"I know it's difficult to believe, but the worst thing about this is I'm telling you the truth," he said.
"That's the worst goddamn thing that's going on in this interview. This happens. These are pretty bad people, but they don't have a conscience and that lets them do it.
"She has no hope whatsoever of ever getting into the good graces of Dave or going free. None."
Ron left the church in 2012 and was cut off by Scientology — and his entire family — because of it.

"I feel grief-y because look I lost my family. It's like they're dead. They're gone. My two daughters, my grandchildren," he said.
Mike Rinder, an Aussie and Scientology's former special affairs director, said the church has left hundreds of families broken.
"If there's one thing that is the common thread that we see throughout the stories of Scientology it's broken families. It's destroyed families," Rinder tells the program.
The former Scientology member was once one of highest-ranked officials in the church.

He last spoke to Shelly in August 2005. She had expressed concerns to him about the church but a month later, she'd vanished.
Tony Ortega, a long-time critic and former member of Scientology, has spent years investigating the church.

The Scientology reporter claims Shelly's final moment of freedom came in mid-2005, not long after the high priestess reportedly completed admin work without her husband's approval.

"He just blows his stack, and I've got eye witnesses for this," Ortega told 60 Minutes.
"He had the biggest temper tantrum of all time. A week later she vanished."

Leah Remini, who clawed her way out of Scientology in 2013, is worried sick for her friend.
"You can't just do what you want with a human being," Remini told the current affairs program.
Remini filed a missing persons report for Shelly in 2013

The Los Angeles Police Department ruled the report was "unfounded" and closed the case, claiming officers had met with Shelly.
A lawyer representing Ms Miscavige told 60 Minutes the Scientology queen was "disgusted" about Remini's allegations and denied suggestions she was missing.
But Remini is still fighting.

"It's getting boring, this response from Scientology. And I'm gonna say it. I'll say it every time now. Cut the bullshit," she said.
"If what we're saying is untrue, sue us, me and Mike (Rinder). We're ready for the lawsuit, so that's what I keep saying. we welcome your lawsuit. We welcome it."

The moment Leah Remini noticed
As Leah Remini stood with her Scientology friends at the 2006 wedding of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, she looked around for her friend Shelly.
David Miscavige, the leader of the highly-secretive church, was there as Cruise's best man.
But his wife Shelly, who he married in 1982, wasn't.
That was the first time Remini, who very publicly left Scientology in 2013, held concerns for her long-time friend.

"Shelly was always where David Miscavige was," Remini told ABC News in 2015.
"It was a wedding of the century … it was like, "where's Shelly?'

"It's such a simple thing. It's a big wedding that the leader of the Church is here and his wife isn't. It's getting weirder because you're making it weirder," Remini said, claiming anyone she tried to ask wouldn't give her a straight answer.
Nancy Many, who left Scientology in 1996, said Remini was "attacked" when she asked about Shelly's disappearance.

"Leah asked about David's wife and came under an unbelievable torrent of attack on her, an attack and inquisition," Many told Reuters in 2013.
Nine months after Remini questioned the whereabouts of her friend, Shelly made what has remained her final public appearance.

In her December 2016 series Scientology and the Aftermath, Remini said LAPD's response left her with more questions.
"There's still answers that I need. I do not know that she is alive. I do not know that she's not being held against her will," she said.
"I do not know these things and so if the church produces her, by bringing her to an event, even if she went on a program and said, 'Hi, Leah Remini. Go f*** yourself,' I'd be happy to know that she was alive.

"The police department should say, 'Yes, we've seen her.' No, I wasn't told that. I was told that a representative saw her or spoke to her. I'm going to continue to get and gather information."

In a statement released ahead of Remini's eight-part documentary, the church said the actress "seeks publicity by maliciously spreading lies about the Church using the same handful of bitter zealots who were kicked out years ago for chronic dishonesty and corruption and whose false claims the Church refuted years ago, including through judicial decisions".


Ron Hubbard’s next intelligence assignment was issuing British propaganda.
William Wiseman was the head of MI6 in the United States. In the mid 1930′s Wiseman was sent to Hollywood where he used his influence to “encourage a favorable portrayal of the British Empire in American films”


In 1936 Hubbard gets “called to Hollywood” (likely by Wiseman) – a British intelligence assignment.  39
Memory And Automaticity, an LRH lecture 16 December 1952 –
I worked for Hollywood for about a year… This is clear back in 1936 and 37.

Commander Thompson was very close friends with Clara Thompson. She worked at Chestnut Lodge Sanitarium which is only a few miles away from Saint Elizabeths Hospital. She was trained at Tavistock Clinic, the place where John Rawlings Rees was working.

Development of Dianetics and Scientology
Stephen Pearl Andrews was a leader in the religious movement called Spiritualism.

Stephen Pearl Andrews (March 22, 1812 – May 21, 1886) was an American individualist anarchist, linguist, political philosopher, outspoken abolitionist and author of several books on the labor movement and individualist anarchism.
Andrews was born in Templeton, Massachusetts on March 22, 1812, the youngest of eight children of the Reverend Elisha Andrews and his wife Ann Lathrop. He grew up thirty-five miles northeast in Hinsdale, New Hampshire.[1] Andrews went to Louisiana at age 19 and studied and practiced law there. Appalled by slavery, he became an abolitionist. He was the first counsel of Mrs. Myra Clark Gaines in her celebrated suits. Having moved to Texas in 1839, Andrews and his family were almost killed because of his abolitionist lectures and had to flee in 1843. Andrews travelled to England, where he was unsuccessful at raising funds for the abolitionist movement back in the United States.
While in England, Andrews became interested in Isaac Pitman's new shorthand writing system and upon his return to the United States he taught and wrote about the shorthand writing system and devised a popular system of phonographic reporting. To further this, he published a series of instruction books and edited two journals, The Anglo-Saxon and The Propagandist. Andrews devised a "scientific" language he called Alwato in which he was wont to converse and correspond with pupils. At the time of his death, Andrews was compiling a dictionary of Alwato which was published posthumously. A remarkable linguist, he also became interested in phonetics and the study of foreign languages, eventually teaching himself "no fewer than 32" languages.
By the end of the 1840s, he began to focus his energies on utopian communities. Fellow individualist anarchist Josiah Warren was responsible for Andrew's conversion to radical individualism and in 1851 they established Modern Times in Brentwood, New York. He was elected an Associate Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1846.  In 1857, Andrews established Unity Home in New York City. By the 1860s, he was propounding an ideal society called pantarchy which is a society with a voluntary government strongly connected with a New Catholic Church and from this he moved on to a philosophy he called "universology" which stressed the unity of all knowledge and activities. He was also among the first Americans to discover Karl Marx and the first to publish his Communist Manifesto in the United States.


Andrews was one of the first to use the word scientology. 

The word is defined as a neologism in his 1871 book

 The Primary Synopsis of Universology and Alwato: The New Scientific Universal Language.

 In the 1870s, Andrews promoted Joseph Rodes Buchanan's Psychometry besides his own universology predicting that a priori derived knowledge would supersede empirical science as exact science.

Andrews was also considered a leader in the religious movement of spiritualism. 

Anarcho-syndicalist Rudolf Rocker called Andrews a significant exponent of libertarian socialism in the United States.

L. Ron Hubbard was not “mankind’s greatest friend”.
As an intelligence agent for the British slavemasters – he was one of mankind’s greatest enemies.

Formation of MI 6

In 1909, the British Home Office became MI 5 and the British Foreign Office became MI 6.
MI5 is Britain’s counter-espionage service. It operates inside Great Britain.
MI6 conducts intelligence activities on foreign soil, outside of Britain.

Admiral Sir George Mansfield Smith-Cumming headed the new Foreign Section of the British Secret Service.
The new Foreign Section is called the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) and MI 6.

Commander Thompson Mentor To Ron Hubbard
.
Commander Joseph Thompson was a medical officer (neurosurgeon) in the US Navy.

Joseph Cheesman Thompson
Joseph Thompson of the US Navy and Consuelo Andrew Seoane of the US Army, served together as spies in Japan starting in 1909. They pretended they were studying coastal reptiles and amphibians, but they were actually charting possible invasion routes and counting all the Japanese fortifications and naval guns that were part of Japan’s coastal defenses. Their espionage work went on from there into places other than Japan. In a subsequent assignment, Thompson was sent into China because of the Boxer rebellion there.
Commander Thompson had a career doing intelligence work using the same archaeologist, exploring scientist cover. He studied bugs and dug up ancient graves, sometimes operating under his real name and sometimes using fake names such as Dr. Victor Kuhne and Joe Tom Sun.  24
Commander Thompson would become the mentor to Ron Hubbard.
On 13 March 1911 Lafayette Ronald Hubbard was born. He is the son of United States naval commander Harry Ross Hubbard and Ledora May Hubbard. A friend of Ron’s father was US Navy Commander Joseph “Snake” Thompson.

All of the basic mental, spiritual, and religious ideas found in Dianetics and Scientology were already developed by the Society for Psychical Research, before L. Ron Hubbard was even born. 

That includes the therapy used.

Vincent Astor Intelligence Network – Naval Reserves
Waldorf Astor was an early member of the Round Table. He and his wife Nancy lived in an estate called Cliveden.
Waldorf and Nancy Astor

The Astors held regular weekend parties and the group that attended them was known as ‘the Cliveden set’.
Some of them were –
Edward Wood, Lord Halifax  (member of Round Table)
Philip Kerr, Lord Lothian  (member of Round Table)
Lionel Curtis  (member of Round Table)
Robert Brand  (member of Round Table)
Geoffrey Dawson  (member of Round Table, editor London Times)
Samuel Hoare  (Foreign Secretary, MI 6)

Waldorf Astor had a wealthy relative in America – William Vincent Astor.
William Vincent Astor
Franklin Delano Roosevelt was Assistant Secretary of the US Navy from 1913 to 1920. Vincent Astor was good friends with Franklin Roosevelt, and they met during World War I to discuss using yachts to make a Naval Reserve Force. They selected their wealthy socialite friends to form a private intelligence network called the Naval Reserves. Their socialite pals were young men who shared the “right” schools, clubs, and connections, and all of them were pro-British. These reserve intelligence officers were under the Office of Naval Intelligence.  12, 15

Roosevelt as Assistant Secretary of the US Navy
Astor and Roosevelt had in common that their grandfathers became wealthy trafficking opium into China.
The grandfather of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Warren Delano Jr., was chief of operations for Russell & Co., a Boston trading firm which did big business in the China opium trade in Canton. He first went to China at age 24 and spent a decade dealing opium on the Pearl River before returning to New York wealthy. He admitted in letters home that opium had an “unhappy effect” on its users, but argued that its sale was “fair, honorable, and legitimate,” akin to importing wine and spirits to America.
Astor’s grandfather became wealthy from trading furs and trafficking opium.
Woodrow Wilson became President of the United States in 1913.
Edward House helped Wilson get elected and was Wilson’s closest adviser.
Colonel Edward Mandell House

World War I was from 1914 to 1919. That was an European conflict that had nothing to do with the United States. American citizens were against America getting into the war. But the British wanted to get America involved on the British side.
Sir George Mansfield Smith-Cumming sent Sir William Wiseman to run the British intelligence effort in America. Wiseman and Colonel House were good buddies. Wiseman was the handler of House, and House was invested in controlling American President Woodrow Wilson. Wiseman and House worked together on handling Wilson to get America into the war.

Aleister Crowley was an MI 6 agent who had the cover of being in the occult. Robert Cecil was his patron who had sent him to Cambridge University for training as a “diplomat”. So, Robert Cecil himself was who recruited Aleister Crowley for British intelligence.
Aleister Crowley worked for William Wiseman during World War I and helped with getting America into the war.
In the 1920’s and 1930’s Crowley spied on Germans with occult interests. 17, 25 

 


Knowledge Report: Amy Scobee on the Tom Cruise Tape

Mark Bunker

Published on Aug 17, 2011

In this raw footage from my documentary on Scientology (Knowledge Report), Amy Scobee talks about watching the Tom Cruise Medal of Valor award ceremony as a Scientologist and her reaction once it was leaked to the net.


In early 1916, William Wiseman recommends to Franklin Roosevelt to have Spencer Eddy start up a spy network to gather domestic intelligence.

In early 1916, William Wiseman recommends to Franklin Roosevelt to have Spencer Eddy start up a spy network to gather domestic intelligence. Eddy agreed to do it.
Commander Edward McCauley, Jr. was assistant director of Naval Intelligence and he acted as the handler for Eddy. Eddy recruited agents from the Naval Reserve Force. The agents in Eddy’s intelligence group were designated voluntary agents of Office of Naval Intelligence. 1

On 6 January 1917, Commander McCauley recruited all these voluntary agents into the United States Naval Reserve Force and gave them the rank of lieutenant junior grade. These men were made officers with temporary commissions and served as “volunteer agents” for the Office of Naval Intelligence. Vincent Astorwas made a Commander in the Naval Reserve.  13, 14


The Naval Reserve was basically a pro-British private intelligence network headed by Vincent Astor.
A little later in time Ron Hubbard was accepted into the Naval Reserves as an intelligence officer.

.
Behavior Modification by Psychiatry

During World War I, John Rawlings Rees and some other psychs were brought into the British Army to handle officer selection and to treat soldiers suffering from shell shock. They called it battle neurosis when the soldiers did not want to kill and be killed.
Their interest was in how to make men into killers and how to choose men to lead and influence others to kill.

They used abreactive therapy on the soldiers, followed up by drugs and electroshock “therapy”.

In 1920, these same psychs formed the Tavistock Institute of Medical Psychology, also called the Tavistock Clinic. They used the same treatments on the civilian population then.

John Rawlings Rees made the following statements about Tavistock Clinic –

…the best results with the war neuroses are obtained when they have active treatment.

“Psychosurgery” in the shape of abreaction followed by simple re-education should as a rule precede a period of rest under narcosis.

There is, however, no question that the general method of abreaction followed by sedation is applicable to many cases in civilian life… 

 
JOHN RAWLINGS REES – TAVISTOCK
John Rawlings Rees was one of the psychiatrists who worked for British intelligence.

Hubbard Imitated Commander Thompson

1923 – Commander Joseph “Snake” Thompson had recently been to Vienna and was a personal student of Sigmund Freud on the subject of the mind and psychoanalysis.
Joseph Thompson
In the autumn of 1923, Snake was on his way back to Washington DC aboard the USS Ulysses S. Grant. Ron Hubbard and his parents boarded the same ship on 1 November 1923, also on their way to Washington, DC.
During this voyage, Ron meets Commander Joseph Thompson. 5

United States Ship Ulysses S. Grant
Commander Thompson was stationed at Saint Elizabeths Hospital in Washington, DC – a mental health hospital.

Commander Thompson was very close friends with Clara Thompson. She worked at Chestnut Lodge Sanitarium which is only a few miles away from Saint Elizabeths Hospital. She was trained at Tavistock Clinic, the place where John Rawlings Rees was working.

Clara Thompson
Starting in 1923, Commander Thompson became the mentor of L. Ron Hubbard who is 12 years old at the time. Thompson spent many afternoons in the Library of Congress teaching Ron Hubbard about the human mind. 5

Further Introduction to Dianetics, an LRH lecture 23 September 1950 –
I was in the Orient when I was young. Of course, I was a harum-scarum kid; I wasn’t thinking about deep philosophic problems; but I had a lot of friends. One such friend was Commander “Snake” Thompson.
He had studied under Sigmund Freud, and he found me a very wide-eyed and wide-eared boy. He had just come from Vienna, and his mouth and mind were full of associative words, libido theories, conversion, and all the rest of it. He had served as an intelligence officer in Japan during the First World War.

The Story of Dianetics and Scientology, an LRH lecture 18 October 1958 –

Anyway, at the Library of Congress in Washington, DC, where they have all the books on everything, he [Thompson] started shoving my nose into an education in the field of the mind. Now, that’s a very unusual thing to do, to take a twelve-year-old boy and start doing something with the mind. But he really got me interested in the subject – up to the point where I was pretty sure that Freud didn’t know what he was talking about.

Practicalities of a Practical Religion, an LRH lecture 3 June 1955 –
Now, another fellow who had been more or less my mentor when I was a little kid – as a matter of fact, I followed in the footsteps of this man – Commander Thompson…
I followed in the footsteps of this man –
Commander Thompson
Commander Thompson was an intelligence agent – not just in Japan during World War I, being an intelligence agent was his career. And that is exactly the career of Ron Hubbard, British intelligence agent, including him being the front man for Scientology. Scientology was always under the thumb of British intelligence.

Commander Joseph Thompson got Ron Hubbard started on his intelligence career.
Ron Hubbard followed Commander Thompson’s footsteps as an intelligence agent.


Mechanics of the Mind, an LRH lecture 10 January 1953 –
…I have approximated to a very remarkable degree the career of Commander Thompson…
…in the field of expeditions, explorations, I always favored certain quarters of the world, always went there and, when there, did certain things. It fits Commander Thompson’s record.
This man had a tremendous influence upon me.
Hubbard is revealing that his expeditions and explorations were cover for doing intelligence work.
Just like Commander Thompson did in his various explorations such as collecting bugs, digging up ancient graves, etc. Those activities were only a cover story to hide what he was really doing in each area – intelligence work.

The common denominator that explains all of Hubbard’s actions in life ….
L. Ron Hubbard
Vincent Astor Intelligence Network – The ROOM
Vincent Astor and his socialite friends required a retreat where they could gather in private to discuss political, financial and international topics. In 1927 Astor formed a secret society called The ROOM, which met monthly in an apartment at 34 East 62nd Street in New York City. All members had British ties and served as British agents. 4

The ROOM building
The ROOM was an outcropping of the previously formed Naval Reserves. The ROOM was the forerunner of the Office of Strategic Services – which was the forerunner of the Central Intelligence Agency.
The members conducted espionage in their travels around the world and they reported at the monthly meeting. Vincent Astor then forwarded the intelligence on to Franklin Roosevelt. It was a Roosevelt-Astor Espionage Ring.
Vincent Astor and Franklin Roosevelt
The most significant ROOM members were –
William Vincent Astor  (family connection in Round Table)
William Wiseman  (head of MI 6 in America)
William Donovan  (Chief of OSS)
David Kirkpatrick Este Bruce  (Chief of OSS in London)
Robert Gordon McKay  (member of OSS)
Charles Suydam Cutting  (member of OSS)
Frederick Trubee Davison  (member of CIA)
Somerset Maugham  (MI 6 agent)
Clarence L. Hay  (Naval Reserve intelligence agent)
William Rhinelander Stewart  (U.S. Office of Naval Intelligence)
Other important Room members were –
Winthrop Williams Aldrich  (son of Nelson Aldrich – who helped enact federal reserve system)
Nelson Doubleday  (publisher, friend of MI 6 agent Ian Fleming)
Barklie McKee Henry (schooled at Oxford University)
Kenneth B. Schley (close friends with Duke and Duchess of Windsor)
H. Nugent  (Kermit Roosevelt’s close English friend)
Reginald Fincke  (his daughter married a British nobleman)
Oliver Dwight Filley  (pilot with the Royal Flying Corps in World War I)
Kermit Roosevelt Sr. (son of American President Theodore Roosevelt, joined the British Army)
Theodore Roosevelt Jr. (son of American President Theodore Roosevelt)    27, 28

Leah Remini and her missing friend Shelly Miscavige, the wife of David Miscavige the head of Scientology 


The British slavemasters want to eliminate national boundaries and establish a World Government that is run by them. Thus British propaganda states that nationalism is the cause of wars. That is a lie. Individual nations are not the cause of wars, the wars have been caused by the British nobility.
May 1938 – John W. Campbell given full authority for Astounding Science Fiction magazine.
May 1938 – Ron Hubbard goes to New York, Street and Smith want him to write for their newly acquired magazine, Astounding Science Fiction. Out of ALL the writers there could be, they choose Ron Hubbard?
Naw, this is a plan going into effect. A propaganda plan.
Now Hubbard is on his new British intelligence assignment as a sci-fi writer. British propaganda is under and done by British intelligence, so when Hubbard starts pumping out New World Order propaganda in his sci-fi stories, he is working for British intelligence.

A copy of Ian MacBean’s 1929 letter to L. Ron Hubbard was an exhibit in the Gerald Armstrong 1 trial.

Scientology Roots Chapter Nine – 1 Hubbard’s Lifelong Intelligence Career
.
The British nobility has been working on a Grand Plan to make themselves the ruthless ruler of the entire world.


The rest of humanity does not agree to their idea that the British nobility should rule the world. They do not want to be obedient subjects, servants and slaves who live under the boot and say-so of the British aristocracy.
Most men want to live as free men who live under their own will and say-so.
Thus the British slavemasters conducted mental and spiritual research. Their real interest in studying the human mind and spirit was to learn how to control men, so they could modify his behavior into what they want all men to be – willing subjects under rule by the British nobility.
The Cecil family is one of the top British slavemaster families. Their family has been the head of British intelligence for over 400 years. Robert Cecil was the leader of an influential family called the Cecil Bloc.
He was the head of British intelligence and he was a British Prime Minister.
Robert Arthur Talbot Gascoyne-Cecil (Lord Salisbury)

One of his sisters had a son named Arthur Balfour. He was in the Cecil family and he was also a head of British intelligence and a Prime Minister of Britain.  20 Arthur J. Balfour

INTRODUCTION:
"... So before you watch this interview I want to preface a few things because:
a part of this interiew is going to controversial and there are a lot of areas where I push the guest and some areas where he's going to say something that Scientologists are not going to agree with or like .. ther're probably  going to hare some of it .. some of what the guest say s... so while we did this interview we  decide to reach out to David McSchavich .. we sent and email ... our executive producer Sir Gerard Haran sent an email to him ... and sayin i am the exective producer to David Bed-David of Valuetainment Media we interviewed Marc Heady and in an effor to provide a right of objection and fair and balanced coverage we will like to offer David Mschavich equal time to tell his side of the story ... thank you Gerrard Haran...

I would go to every church and debate everybody .... with all these tough questions .... because I was trying to get clarity for myself... 

This was the response we received from the Church of Scientology..

Dear Mr Haran,

Controversy" about the Church is in evitably traceable to the same handfull of bitter former members licked out for their malfeandance and eithical lapsed many years ago.  Those who would seek to introduce controversy where noen exists have an agenda. In their case, it is always financial. They get paid to feen tales to tabloids that are salacious and untrue. They know nothing about what is on out new television channel -- our spiritual headquarters in Clearwater, Bridge Publications, our International Dissemination and Distribution Center, and our new Churches that span 23 nations and six continents. Thy eknow noting about Scientology Media productions, our hmanitiarian, drug rehabiliation and social betterment programs, and success. They have no creditability. Those who live in tim houses shouldn't throw can openers. We suggest you look into them. See, for example wwww.whoismarcheadley.com.

David Miscavige is the leader of the Church of Scientology. His official title is Chairman of the ... The group started with running Hubbard's errands, but as they grew into ... well managed by Author Services Inc., of which Miscavige was Chairman of the ....  
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Miscavige 
 David Miscavige (/mɪˈskævɪdʒ/) is the leader of the Church of Scientology.[1] His official title is Chairman of the Board of the Religious Technology Center (RTC), a corporation that controls the trademarks and copyrights of Dianetics and Scientology.


Miscavige was a deputy to church founder L. Ron Hubbard (a "Commodore's messenger") while he was a teenager. He rose to a leadership position by the early 1980s and was named Chairman of the Board of RTC in 1987. Official church biographies describe Miscavige as "the ecclesiastical leader of the Scientology religion"

Since he assumed his leadership position, there have been a number of allegations made against Miscavige. These include claims of forced separation of family members, coercive fundraising practices, harassment of journalists and church critics, and humiliation of church staff members, including physical assaults upon them by Miscavige. Miscavige and church spokespersons deny the majority of these claims, often criticizing the credibility of those who bring them.


We realised that the last time David Miscavige did an interview was 24 years ago with Ted Carple ...and then after that ... out team did a little research and we came towith the name Marc Headley and we contacted Marc ... now this may not be the favourite person that Scientologists would want me to interveiw ...but ... because it would be a lot different if could have got David...then is we could not get David we wanted to get somebody ...we got Marc here... for some of you to know who Marc is ....Marc work for the Church of Scientology for 15 years from 1990 up until 2005 .... four years after L Ron Hubbard died... Marc was there for 15 years at the International Base of Scientology in California ... 
Marc Headley: The International Base of Scientology in California ...  is the facility that runs and control Scientology internationally..


Question: You guys have around 5,000 people that work for Scientology world wide and around 700 people who work at the International Base of Scientology in California ... 


Answer:  yes at that facility there is bewteen 500 and 700 people working there ... at that one facility in Cakifornia ..
Marc also wrote a book called:
"Blown for Good "
Behind the Iron Curtain of Scientology..
Marc's book ... Blown for Good ...  means blown for good the image and secrets of the Church of Scientology .. when Marc stepped away form the Church..... there were some ugly things that happened to Marc when he left Scientology for good ... 
Marc is going to shrae some of that experience ..
Mrc also was in an Emy Award Winning Series called
"Scientology and the Aftermath" ...  with Leah Remini


 Question:
When you think about Scientology .. what does it mean to you? 
back then ... not now..

Question:
Did you yourself ... your mother was a member of the Church of Scientology for 11 years from  1979, when Marc was 6 or 7 years old ... .... then afterwards .. all you know is Scientology ... then you started working with Scientology from the age of 16 to 31 ... from 1979 onewards ..what is Scientology you? 
Did you look at Scientology as a religion of was it more as a secret society .. or like an organisation like the Freemasons or ... like a personal development .. Tony Robbins type of organisation .... estabilished group that had been around longer that Tony Robbins had been around ... and its kind of like the Nightingale Type of Group .. learning how to process  issues ... how to work better ,... how did you view Scientolgy when you were in it ... not today .. but when you were actally in Scientology ...


Answer:
Well they kind of drilled into us  the whole region angle ... 
They drilled us it was like we are a religion .. these are our religious beliefs? ... so when i was there .. I viewed Scientology as a religion .... but at the same time .. when you are at the International Headquaters of Scientology in California .. .there's crazy shit going on you all ovr the place .... so when you see that stuff... there's a lot of mental gymnatistics  is happening to justify we are doing this is the name of religion .... like this guy  David Miscavige   is beating people   

Question:
You actually witnessed  David Miscavige   actually beating people ....  when you say beating people .. what do you mean by that..


Answer:
Absolutely ... absolutely .... punching with you fists into the face ....  shoving ... kicking ... punching .... kicking ... throwing people across tables ... and throwing people against walls ..


Question:
Who were the people that this was happening to...


Answer:
Most of the people he would give beat downs to were  International Executives ...
so these were the people who were in  charge of runing Scientology  ....  were to most beat people at that property ..


Question:
These were influential names ....
these were influential figures within the Church of Scientology ... and they were also
 in the Sea Organisation .... so the people that are fighting ..... the people that are beating each other up .... are the top executives  of the Church of Scientology and the Sea Org.   .... 


Answer: Yeh... if any Scientologist knew that the people that we was beating.. they would know all their names ... Marc Ingerg, Marc Jager ...Gullaume Leserve 
Hiborjans  .. Mike Rinder ...  any of the people ...  these people he would give a beat down to were well know executives in the Church of Scientology ...  they were also in the Sea organization, so ... the people that are fighting and beating each othewr up are the top executives of Scientology ... so mit wouldn't be a public member like a person whoi goes into an Org in Cincinatti .. that person wouldn't see or be part this ... its all..


Question:  Behind the Scenes?


Answer: It all happened behind the curtain..


Question: Did it ever happen to you... did you 


Answer: On two occasisons David Miscavige struck me ... and one of the last occassions wa sin thr 2000's ... it was shortly before I left Scientology ...David Miscavige punched me .. be basically ... ... I had glasses at the time ... David Miscavige punched me so hard in the face that my glasses broke ....and um .. I went up against a cabinet  .. kinda like a desk unit  and um ... I didn't fall down or anything ... but when I regained myself David Miscavige saw i was coming for him ... and he's not a big guy .. he usually has an entourage with him though .... and as soon as he saw the look in my eyes ... these two guys grabbed and took me out of the building and as I was being led out of the building ... David Miscavige said ... " did you see that? ....jhat was the guy that was going tohit me.. and I said .. you bet .... I was the guy that was going to hit you ... "


Question: Not tgo play the devils advocate ... but how many other peoplehave come out saying what you're saying about David Miscavige actually hitting people .... 


Answer: at  least 20 to 30 other people..


Question: 20 other people have come out saying this has happened?


Answer: Absolutely ...


Question: if that is the case ... how come David Miscavige is still runniing the entire thing... ?


Answer: Because they've got a group of 50 people there that they write affidavits for the people ...


Question: Right?
Answer: They give them to them and they sign them..


So he's got 50 people against the 30 people ... that say that never happened and that David Miscavige never even yelled at anybody ...  and
say in the affidavits that David Miscavige  found a little birdie outside that wa damaged and David Miscavige nursed the little birdie back to life ....

Question: Has there ever been a deep investigation into the Church ... or no...


Answer: Absolutley ..


Question: I mean deep ... deep ... investigations..


Answer: I have seen government drone footage of the actual International Headquaters .. I was shown this by the FBI ... 


Question: What was the court ruling afterwards?


Answer: it was dropped ..


Question: So you can see that ... I am not trying to defend the Scientologists .. I am not trying to defend the other side .. I am just trying to get an argument on both sides to say ... OK ... if that's really happened... who hasn't a court ... the court process .. someone would say .. the court probably didn't proceed because the court paid them off.... 

Answer: No... I can tell you exactly why they get out of it ... 


Question: Tell me why?


Answer: How ever spends the most money on their lawyers and who ever has the best legal team are the ones that win the case... and Scientology in the cases that have been brought against them..


Question: Yep..


Answer: Have ... like myself and my wife sued Scientology ,,, 
Legal Opinion by O'Scannlain, Curcuit |Judge
We considered two fromer minister's claims that the Church of Scientology forced them to provide labour in violation of the Trafficing Victims Protection Act...
And Scientology spent 10's of million of dollars fighting that case... 


Question: Your case..?


Answer: Just my case ... Scientology has an unlimited legal and private investigation team and dirty budget that they can call from .... they have an entire spy wing in Los Angelos .... in the 1970's there was a group called The Guardian's Office .. and that was the spy wing of Scientology  .. they purpetrated the largest infiltration into the United States Government in its history ....you can Google this ... Guardian's Office ...

In that raid they found documents that exonerated people that Scientology had sued... and they found all this evidence of how Scientology had basically framed these people .. all sorts of dirty tricks ...  Ok.... that organisation is called the Office of Special Affairs Today ... and its ins Hollywood .. its on 63/31 Hollywood Boulevard  ... and that organisation is the one the hires the lawyers ... they hire private investigators ..


Question: Is it part of the Church?


Answer: Absolutely ...the people that work in the office of Special Affars are Sea Organization members ..... One thing that you've got to know about Scientology is that ..L Ron Hubbard ... wrote anything its in stone ... it can never be changed .... and  ..L Ron Hubbard ... wrote a policy that says that when somebody leaves Scientology and then is they attack Scientology or they speak badly about Scientology .. the policy is to destroy them utterly ...


Question: Is that public information to the members?


Answer: No..Its an internal policy..


Question: Right.. who has read that .. the 5,000 members that work for Scientology world wide ... 


Answer: Most of them probably have...


Question: And they know about it?
This is a common thing?
If they ever leave you have to desstroy them?


Answer: Even to a point ... there is a book that is caled the Ethics Book
An Intruction to Scientology Ethics by L. Ron Hubbard
and that book that any Scientologist can read.... anybody can reads it even if your not a Scientologist ... and in there it has crimes and high crimes and misdomenours ... and in that it talks about if you associate with a supressive person .. if you help a supressive person ... if you give a supressive person a platform to speak out ... these are High Crimes .... so either way .. this group .. the Office of Special Affairs .. one of theirt sole purposes is to destroy crtics of Scientology .... that's all they do .. they actually have graphs on their wall in their desk unit of how many Scientologists they have cut connections from these supressive persons ... 


Question: You may say that this is common in other religions as well .. likeI was part of a group and I watched what happen in front of my when a couple of people steped away from the Church ... their families turned against those two people ... it was very ugly when that happened.. and |i thought ...wow that was pretty ugly .. and then ... they used to be lifte up .. all because something happened .... 
Answer: There is one thing in Scientology is called disconnection ... 


What is Disconnection?
A Scientologist can have trouble making speritual progress in his audiig or training if he is connected to someone who is supressive or who is antagpnostic to Scientology or its tenets. All spititual advance gained from |Scientology may well be losy becaue one os continually invalidated by an antogolistic person 
 by a supressive person who wants nothing more than to do harm to tha person.
There are words for it in other religions ... so I leave ... and you don't want to talk to me anymore ... ok that's fine.... but when you call child services to try and get my ids taken away .... or you have private investigators camped outside my house  or ...
Question: Did this happen to somebody else ... or did that happen to you?


Answer: That happened to me.... 
 Child Services got an anomynmous tip ...that our kids were in danger ...  and Child Services showe dup to our house ... when we were working with the FBI in the investigation ... we gave al the information over ... about this  Child Services thing ..,. to the FBI .... without officially saying it ...,,
. they said ... yep they did that .... OK you can say other religions .. I do not know how many other religions have... have million and millions of dollars to pay private investigators to follow former members ..


Question:
Wel i will tell you this.... there is an individual that worked at Scientology's International Headquarters ...and he left in the 1980's .. and David Miscavige  .. this is documented ... this was reported on by the |Tamper Bay Times ...

Newspaper article and photo:

The Truth Rundown
High-Ranking Defections say Scientology's leader Enforces Loyalty with beatings and Bullying... 
Two private invetstigators were paid by David Miscavige  adn they reported to David Miscavige  ... they watched this former Scientologist that worked in the Sea Orh International Base fp 25 years ... two private investigators ... that was their whole life ... they were paid milions and million ... just two guys were paid millions and millions of dollars to watch one single ex-Scientologist .... that's one..
Question: How important was that one...?
Answer:  He was the guy that David Miscavige  ... they have these levels in Scientology ... they have OT Levels ....
OT I
OT II
to
OT XV etc
to total freedom 
and you have hundreds of thousands of dollars to get to the top level ,,,
Question: How many levels ... I seen 15 levels .. I've seen 10 levels?
Answer: They have eight levels.. OK ... this guy that left ... David Miscavige  thought that this guy took levels 9 and 10 with him ...
because they don't have a 9 and 10 level ... 
L Romn Hubbard wrote a chart that goes from OT I to OT 15 ... but l Ron Hubbard only finishe dup to level 8 before he died... he himself only wrote up to either levels... they have been telling Scientologists that these levels 9 to 15 exist ... but they don't ...that's fiction .... but this guy that left ...David Miscavige  thinks that he took levels9 and ten with him ... because the guy that left worked with l Ron Hubbard .... 
Question:   So this was not a regular guy that left that they spent $25 million dollars on private investorgators to watch him ... this was a pretty influenntial guy that leeft Scientology .... so lets ..


Answer: Ether way ... you say its like other religions ....well I've worked there for 15 years and I've seen other things... don't get me wrong.... I've seen other horrible things that happens in other cults and in other religions .. but form working there for 15 years ... I can tell you that Scientology ... and Scientology has benn around since the 1950's   ... Scientology has spent 60 to 70 years perfecting this spy ops ... this black ops type of engagement against former members ... so ... there maybe other placed that do it .. but Scientology's Spy Operations are lowe level ... they know how to do stuff ..... 


Question: If you think about it ... ENRON .... ENRON is a very big compant ... multi million to multo billion dollar company ... they have some of the best lawyers ... the best lawyers than anybody else at that time ... they were still taken down ... you Google  various large comanies which are $50 billion dollar empires .... bigger than Scientology ,, bigger than a lot of other compant empires and it the proper investigation in done they still go down ... so how come it hasn't happened to Scientology?
I know that Scientology has 20 to 30 thousand members .... don't know the exact numbers ... you would know better than me ..


Answer: That's fairly accurate..


Question: 20 to 30 thousand members ... and the biggest name in probably To, Cruise and you have John TRavalta .. I know in the past Scienfield dabbled with it a little bit but says i was never part of it... I just took a few courses ... Brad Pitt used ot be there whern he used ot date a girl who used to be a bib scientologist .... he used to dabble with it a litle bit ... youi have some other names .. such as Katie Homes ... al these girls that were with Tom Cruise who used ot part of it ... one pf Tom Cruises ex wives that used to be part of Scientology that introduced Tom Cruise to Scientology ... she left Scientology ... Greta Van Sistrin is a Scietologist and she works for Fex News ... I don't know about John Travolta .. I dress like John Travolta Style from Saturday Night Fever ... when I wa sin the Army .. he has great taste ... and he knows how to dance ... but I do not know if I would put John Travolta as a genious ... I dont' think I would put him in that category ... 


Answer: John Travolta is not their best spokes person..


Question: I can tell you that om Cruise comes across as a very smart guy to me ... when i saw Tom's interview with Mat Louer and he's going bacdk and forward ... he made a come back in his career ... there's pasrt of that interview that shows that this guy in making sense and he's pushing Mat back and forward ... and Greta is not a dummy .. Gretta is a smart person ... so then if it is watch you say it is .. and you're not the only person that is saying tihis ...then whu have so many intelligent smart people been turned onto this this ... why is that ... is it jusy because of the power and the fame .. or is is just because the content of Scientology changed their lives... 


Answer: I explain it like this .. let's say you hae a relationship problem ...you just can't get into relationships... and you ... some Scientologist say  hey we have a course
Book : How to Improve Relationships with others
Based on the works of L. Ron Hubbard
that can help you with relationships ...


Question: Sure...
Answer: I aleardy know that that is a


Book: Creating A Successful Marriage 
Based on the works of L. Ron Hubbard  
they call this a Ruin.... something that you have in your life that you can't  figure out and you can't solve it .. theu then say that we have as course that will help you with that exact thing... its $50 buck.... $100 bucks. you do that course you find out that there another 10 thongs that are messed up with your life that you didn't know were messed up ... yo just wanted to sort out getting a girl friend...they wil now sell you another $5,000 worth of courses to handle those ten problems that you figured out .... 
Fast forward ... 15 years later ... your third divorse .... you've spent $500.000 dollars (half a million dollars) and you've brnn chasing this relationship thing ... that then turned into all this other stuff....  and it doesn't matter what your Ruin is ... Scientology has a course that will handle that Ruin .... if you're a person who is not good at communicating ... they have a communications course ... if you can't get along with your family ... they have a course called '... How to Get Along With Others ... 
they've isolated ... and this is the genious of L Ron Hubbard ... he isolate all these different aeas of life that people have problems with and they made all these $50 courses ... that's the cheese .... once they get you in the trap .., it just goes like that for ever .... all the way up to OTA .. its always a bate and switch ... al these these things ... they say that you've got these Aliens attached to you ... 


Question: So they are creating an imaginary problem and having a solution for te imaginary problem ... which is called the Egallion Dilectic .. which is ..
Theis ( Propositio) v Anti thesis (Counter Proposition) 
to reconciliation
to Synthesus ( New Thesis) v Antithesis (Counter-Proposition)
 to  reconciliation to 
Synthesis (New Thesis)
 I do not know if you are familiar with that..


Answer: I am and this is like the best part of it...
IT a set of cards .. this whole thing... but you build it...


Question: Right? it is an old tactic


Answer: They get you in.... then you build the house  of cards yourself... and your navigating all these problems that essentially that you've put in your own road block in front of you and their saying .. Oh ...this how we can get you though thta road block... and that's eseentially what happens ... now ... I've talked to Scientologists that have gone all the way up to OTA ... and their like Yeh.... I've got nothin ... if I could rewind and got rid of all that .. I'd right were I am right now .... you learn a lot of things in Scientology about yourself ... but most of those things you are prompted for you to say ... so ... they are trying to get your money... that's the bottom linr. their trying to get your money .. and they are alos trying to get you to get other people is .. so they can thodr people's money .... there's anothrer thing ... there are not as lot of poor Scientologists ... if you know people who are Scientology ..... most of those people thaat you know have money ... because  ... they don't need porr people ... they don't need people that don't have money ... because what are they going to do .. they are just going to do thaat $50 dollsr course and  thren what .. that's it ... OK ...tnat's not as good value for them to get in those sort of people ....  and L. Ron Hubbard in the 1960's ot 1970's actually wrote this program .. I think it was called Project Celebrity ...
It we are to do anything about the society at large, we must do something about its communication lihnes.
One of the parts of this plan is Projecy Celebrity.
There are many of hom America and the world listens. On the backs of these are carried most of the enthusiasms on which society runs. it is vital, on or Third Dynamic operation, to put such persons into wonderful condition.
It is obvious what would happem to America if we helped its leaders to help others. Project Celelbrity is part of that program. It is obvious what would happen to Scientology if prime communications benefitting from it would metion it now and then.
Herein you finf a list of celebrities. If you want one of these, write us ay omce, giving the ONE celebrity you have celected. We will then allocate this person to tou as your game.
Having been awarded one of these celebrities, it will be up to you to learm what you can about your quarry and them put yourself at every hand across his or her path, and not permittingdiscourasgements or "no's" or clerks or secretaries to intervene, in days or weeks or months, to bring your celebirty into formal auditing session and deliver an amount ofgood auditing necessary to (1) make him much more effective, and (2) make him aware of the benefits of Scientology on the Third Dynamic.
Finance, your pay, your expeneses on this hunt are up to you. OBviusly, at whatever future date, the investment will repay itself some doczen of times,
The HASI and HDRF will do this for you:
1. Award the celebrity to you as your quarry.
2. Restrain any other audor from bothering your game.
3. Gove you, tuition free, teo weeks of special coaching of the Hubbard Professional |College in Phoenix. (You would have to pay your transpory and living costs.)
4. Assist ny maining to the celebrity, your actions.
here we have Project Celebrity. Much later, as part of the Third Dynamic action of Scientology, we will have other comm-lines to take over. Just now we have these. They are powerful ines.
Thes celebrities are wull guared, well barricaded, over-worked, aloof quarry. If you brin one of them home you will get a small plaque as your reward. 
If you want one of these celebrities as your game, write us at once so the notable will be yours to hunt without interference.

They have done that every since... they get on celebrity in... then they get one or two other ones in and they get one or two other ones is and so on,...so even they only have 20 to 20,000 people in Scientology ... 5,000 of those are giving them a few million bucks each  year .. they don't pay these 5,000 people that work there ...  ther're not makling any money ... 
Question: When you worked  there ... what were you making... what were you making for 15 years... ?

Puerto Rico became a United States possession at the end of the Spanish-American war.
Pedro Albizu Campos was the leading advocate for Puerto Rican independence.
Campos was elected president of the Puerto Rican Nationalist Party in 1930.  37

Dr. Cornelius P. Rhoads was doing medical research for the Rockefeller Institute at San Juan Presbyterian Hospital. In November 1931, when Rhoads was about to complete his research for Rockefeller, he wrote a letter that said:
…the Porto Ricans — they are beyond doubt the dirtiest, laziest, most degenerate and thievish race of men ever inhabiting this sphere. It makes you sick to inhabit the same island with them. What the island needs is not public health work, but a tidal wave or something to totally exterminate the population. I have done my best to further the process of extermination by killing off 8 and transplanting into several more. The matter of consideration for the patient’s welfare plays no role here — in fact, all physicians take delight in the abuse and torture of the unfortunate subjects.

When lab workers in the Presbyterian Hospital found the letter and photocopied it, all hell broke lose. The letter reached Campos, who displayed it for all Puerto Ricans to see, thus sparking a revolution amongst the Puerto Ricans. In January 1932, Campos published an article accusing Dr. Rhoads of killing Puerto Rican patients. Campos continued to make an international flap out of it.
Hubbard dropped out of college in 1932 and immediately went on an intelligence mission to Puerto Rico. He made two lengthy trips to Puerto Rico, which was a political nightmare at the time. The people in Puerto Rico were demanding independence.
The first cover story he used was he was going on a “Caribbean Motion Picture Expedition”. Hubbard rented the schooner Doris Hamlin and set sail on 24 June 1932. His final stopping point was Puerto Rico, where he got off the Doris Hamlin. Hubbard spent more than two weeks there in August 1932.  33, 34  Ship records show Hubbard departed San Juan on the SS Coamo on 25 August 1932.  35
Ron Hubbard’s second trip to Puerto Rico had the cover of him doing the “Puerto Rican Mineralogical Expedition”. Hubbard does this with a mining engineer named Joseph Buhrman Carper. Hubbard went to Puerto Rico on 26 October 1932, on board the USS Kittery. They spent a short time looking for gold in a river and the bulk of the time Hubbard was out gathering intelligence on the people in Puerto Rico who were rebelling.

William Donovan
When he was trying to explain his radio-direction finding work while in Ketchikan, he is recorded in a radio program giving the explanation that:
…doing radio experimental work on beacon signals for the Navy Department, Fisher Research Laboratories, and the Cape Cod Instrument Company, I chanced to have some radio direction finders of high sensitivity. (Church of Scientology site “Clearing the Airwaves”; history of KGBU )
He didn’t “chance” to have such equipment. He was given it specifically for his trip and his real purposes there. Astor had been provided one for a similar intelligence mission that he had done where he was locating Japanese radio stations in the Marshall Islands

William Wiseman
After graduating from George Washington University, Paul Linebarger went to Oxford in England where he was groomed for his intelligence career.  84    
In the future, Paul Linebarger would be one of several CIA agents who helped Hubbard start Dianetics and Scientology. In addition to that, Linebarger and Hubbard worked for a CIA unit called Political Action Staff.
The head of that CIA unit was under Kermit Roosevelt junior whose father was a ROOM member.   86   

Intelligence Assignment in Puerto Rico
In 1932 Vincent Astor starts forwarding ROOM intelligence directly to Franklin Roosevelt.
Most early data concerned general conditions in the Caribbean and Panama Canal Zone.   30


November 1928 – Hubbard is leaving China, going back to Guam.
January 1, 1929 – Ian MacBean writes to Hubbard, calls him a lieutenant and says he has been retained. 16


Dear Red,
You’ll probably hear this officially soon but I want to let you know first. You’re still a Lieutenant. You’ve been retained in spite of all the fuss the Ambassador made.
Please come back…
Mac


A copy of Ian MacBean’s 1929 letter to L. Ron Hubbard was an exhibit in the Gerald Armstrong 1 trial.
We see from this that Ron Hubbard was hired by British intelligence and given the rank of Lieutenant.
It was to be his lifelong career…

Scientology Stage

Between 1932 and 1941 Hubbard traveled extensively in Central America.  


Roosevelt Meeting With Round Table
In 1932 Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected President of the United States. Roosevelt immediately goes to meet with Round Table members at Cliveden.  45  Franklin Roosevelt then assumed office as American President from 1933 to 1945.
Starting in 1933, Vincent Astor served as the intermediary for intelligence gathered by ROOM members and their agents, forwarding intelligence directly to President Franklin Roosevelt.
Roosevelt went to the Nourmahal for rest, and to escape from the burdens of office during the early years of his presidency. “This is the only place I can get away from people, telephones and uniforms,” Roosevelt wrote a friend in 1934.  31

Waldorf and Nancy Astor. Waldorf Astor was an early member of the Round Table. He and his wife Nancy lived in an estate called Cliveden.

The ROOM
The ROOM was an outcropping of the previously formed Naval Reserves. The ROOM was the forerunner of the Office of Strategic Services – which was the forerunner of the Central Intelligence Agency.

This includes testimony from, amongst others, former high-ranking scientologists Mike Rinder, Amy Scobee, Marty Rathbun and Bruce Hines.


Ron Hubbard on the left - Carper and Hubbard constructed a sluice. Hubbard said –
“After locating a likely spot, Carper built a test sluice from discarded boards, and we began the task of sluicing the Negro in hope of fabulous riches. The sluice itself was a simple affair—a twenty-foot box without a top, a foot deep and a foot wide…

Vincent Astor
Roosevelt as Assistant Secretary of the US Navy.Astor and Roosevelt had in common that their grandfathers became wealthy trafficking opium into China.
The grandfather of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Warren Delano Jr., was chief of operations for Russell & Co., a Boston trading firm which did big business in the China opium trade in Canton. He first went to China at age 24 and spent a decade dealing opium on the Pearl River before returning to New York wealthy. He admitted in letters home that opium had an “unhappy effect” on its users, but argued that its sale was “fair, honorable, and legitimate,” akin to importing wine and spirits to America. Astor’s grandfather became wealthy from trading furs and trafficking opium.

Colonel Edward Mandell House Edward House helped Wilson get electedas US President and was Wilson’s closest adviser

Hubbard Recruited by British Intelligence
In April 1928 Hubbard drops out of high school and goes to meet his parents in Guam.
On 30 May 1928 Hubbard traveled to China aboard the Mariana Maru, without his parents along.
Ron Hubbard aboard the Mariana Maru – he is 17 years old
Hubbard apparently spent more than six months in China, because a journal entry in his diary on November 11, 1928 shows that he has left Peking, and is now at sea again.
This is the time when Hubbard’s British intelligence career gets officially going.
Major Ian MacBean worked for MI 6 in China. His wife was Phyllis Bedell and since childhood she was lifelong friends with Admiral Mark Kerr. His cousin was Philip Henry Kerr, a member of the Round Table who held top positions in British intelligence and he worked directly with Lord Robert Cecil. The point is – Major Ian MacBean had family connection right to the top of the British slavemasters.  57
Starting in June 1928, Hubbard gets trained by British intelligence man Ian MacBean, for the next six months.
An autobiographical excerpt by Hubbard:
I was up and down the China coast several times in my ‘teens from Ching Wong Tow to Hong Kong and inland to Peking and Manchuria. I had a very good friend in the British Legation in Peking, Major Ian MacBean who was an intelligence officer. My friends were very kind to me, even indulgent, and I was extremely fortunate in having the friendship of a great many older men. They found me a good listener.
Ian MacBean took Hubbard on a tour of British intelligence efforts from Peking through northern China.
From the L. Ron Hubbard website –
…among those encountered through the course of his second Asian venture… was a Major Ian MacBean of the British Secret Service. Precisely why this MacBean would take a seventeen-year-old L. Ron Hubbard through a tour of British intelligence efforts from Peking through northern China is not known. Nonetheless, and as we shall see, MacBean’s lessons were to serve Ron well.
http://adventurer.lronhubbard.org/page06.htm

Hubbard, in his own words in Dime Adventure magazine, October 1935 –
I completely missed the atmosphere of the city, devoting most of my time to a British major who happened to be head of the Intelligence out there.
Originally published in the February 1935 issue of Five Novels –
It was on Hubbards second journey to East Asia that he met British Secret Service agent, Major Ian MacBean, who introduced him to “The Great Game,” the geopolitical tug-of-war between China, Japan, and Britain.

L. Ron Hubbard’s Great-Grandson Reveals Horrifying Truth About Scientology

https://newspunch.com/l-ron-hubbard-scientology/

July 18, 2017 Sean Adl-Tabatabai News, US

L.Ron Hubbard’s great-grandson, Jamie DeWolf,  has spoken out against Scientology and its founder, revealing the dark and disturbing truth about the biggest cult in the world.
Scientology has a history of silencing its critics. If you want to know why they are so desperate to stop insiders from speaking out, look no further than Jamie DeWolf.
In the video below, you will learn about Hubbard’s family story, how L. Ron had vowed to con everybody he came in contact with, and the numerous death threats Ron and the Church issued to those who dared criticise it.




Transcript:
Host: I’m excited about this one. This is going to make history. Our next guest, a poet, writer, filmmaker, educator, photographer. I’m leaving stuff out. Brother is amazing, and you are in for a treat. I’m in for some trouble, and you’re about to find out why. Mr. Jamie DeWolf.
Jamie DeWolf: Every family has their black sheep. On my mother’s side, our black sheep was a shepherd who enslaved his own flock, the king of cons, a man who made himself a messiah even though he never called himself a god. Even tonight, his words are written in steel, in titanium capsules, in a nuclear reinforced bunker miles underground. So if our whole species goes extinct, his words will still survive. He was a subject we never talked about at the kids’ table at family reunions, but he was my great grandfather, L. Ron Hubbard.
Lafayette Ron Hubbard, he was born a storyteller, a science fiction writer, a golden tongued grifter who could write a book in any genre while the publisher waited downstairs in the hotel lobby. Just another name on dime store pulp mags paid only $0,01 a page until 1949 when he said, “You want to know how you really get rich? You start a religion.”
A year later, he kept to his word, wrote “Dianetics,” transforming science fiction into fact until you could pay to flat line your mind for a fee. Overnight, he went from pennies to a prophet until the world demanded to see his evidence. But L. Ron knew if you don’t have facts, all you need is faith. So he transformed his science into a religion, and Scientology was born.

A few years later, his son arrived, a baby who survived an early abortion attempt, born premature at two pounds, two ounces, abandoned by his father as he sought fame and fortune. Now he emerged to take his part of the new family business. He was my grandfather, L. Ron Hubbard Jr.

Carrying his father’s name and his red hair, Junior became his right hand man and was a devout disciple and a believer, helping them to construct the church. It took him years to realize he was only another accomplice. Trained in the arts of electrified hypnotism, blackmail and beat downs, he learned to hide his crimes behind his charisma. And it took him a decade to see the holes behind the holy, the man behind the myth, his father, stuffing thousands of dollars in a shoe box he kept secret underneath the bed. His father, burning incriminating documents before dawn. His father, escaping criminal charges as he ran from state to state as Junior watched his family and friends, brains washed, banks broken.

Sickened by what he had seen behind the curtain, in 1959, Junior left. But his Father always understood retribution better than redemption, and he stalked his son with wiretaps, break ins and death threats, my grandfather coming home to photographs of his children in his mailbox playing on playgrounds alone and unguarded to remind him the eye of the pyramid never blinks. While every one of my aunts and uncles were taught how to use a gun, the son forced to live like his dad, permanently on the run until he changed his last name from Hubbard to DeWolf, a lie to protect him from every having to tell the truth.

When your father has created a religion in your lifetime, there’s no sun big enough to ever escape his shadow. But there’s a thin line between prophecy and psychosis, and the bare faced messiah run from countries and criminal charges, an international outlaw on a ship escaping extradition, his sanity slipping as he started confusing his past from his fiction. Until one day, he vanished before a courtroom or a jail cell could ever make him real again.

Junior, now buried under debt, tried to flush his father out of hiding to write him a check. So he litigated the holy ghost to prove he still had flesh. The son took his war public, scraped the idol’s gold down to rust. Junior, now a dying diabetic with an amputated foot, buried and battered from a decade of lawsuits against the man who carried his same name until the day his dad died in hiding, cremated the next morning, leaving only a legacy of ashes.

The church gave the son on final offer. Arrest your tongue, swallow the truth for one final check, or you and your next of kin will suffer a lifetime of threats. So he signed away his silence and took his secrets and two heart attacks to his grave, another victim the church stopped pretending to save.

On Thanksgiving in a house a self-made god paid for, his grand children never said his name. He was the one god we never gave grace to. One day, my grandfather led me to a bookshelf and showed me his father’s works. And he said, “Your mom says you want to be a writer. Well, don’t believe everything you read, but believe everything you say.”
I never met the man who gave me my red hair. The manic depression is still twisted in the strains of my DNA. And the first time I saw a psychiatrist. when he asked me if mental illness runs in my family, all I could say was, “Yes. Yes it does.” When I told him my great grandfather was a cult leader that enslaved the minds of millions, he accused me of having delusions of grandeur. What can I say? It runs in my veins.

I’ve been, in secret, to L. Ron Hubbard Hollywood Life Exhibits, where his latest victim leads me on a tour of a life he never led, my family written out of existence. And this disciple will never know the legacy of lies that I still carry in my last name. DeWolf, a cover story to protect us from my great grandfather’s true children, the army of empty who greet me in train stations with an E-meter and a personality test. And they ask me if I’ve ever heard of L. Ron Hubbard. And I want to ask them, “Which one? The son or the father? The god or the man?”

MI-6 Are The Lords of The Global Drug Trade
by James Casbolt
from JamesCasbolt Website
https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/sociopol_drugs

It may be a revelation to many people that the global drug trade is controlled and run by the intelligence agencies. In this global drug trade British intelligence reigns supreme.

As intelligence insiders know MI-5 and MI-6 control many of the other intelligence agencies in the world (CIA, MOSSAD etc) in a vast web of intrigue and corruption that has its global power base in the city of London, the square mile. My name is James Casbolt, and I worked for MI-6 in 'black ops' cocaine trafficking with the IRA and MOSSAD in London and Brighton between 1995 and 1999
My father Peter Casbolt was also MI-6 and worked with the CIA and mafia in Rome, trafficking cocaine into Britain. My experience was that the distinctions of all these groups became blurred until in the end we were all one international group working together for the same goals. We were puppets who had our strings pulled by global puppet masters based in the city of London. Most levels of the intelligence agencies are not loyal to the people of the country they are based in and see themselves as 'super national'.
It had been proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that the CIA has been bringing in most of the drugs into America for the last fifty years (see ex LAPD officer Michael Rupert's 'From the wilderness' website for proof).

The CIA operates under orders from British intelligence and was created by British intelligence in 1947.

The CIA today is still loyal to the international bankers based in the city of London and the global elite aristocratic families like the Rothschild's and the Windsor's. Since it was first started, MI-6 has always brought drugs into Britain. They do not bring 'some' of the drugs into Britain but I would estimate MI-6 bring in around ninety percent of the drugs in.


They do this by pulling the strings of many organized crime and terrorist groups and these groups like the IRA are full of MI-6 agents.
MI-6 bring in heroin from the middle east, cocaine from south America and cannabis from morocco as well as other places. British intelligence also designed and created the drug LSD in the 1950's through places like the Tavistock Institute in London. By the 1960's MI-5, MI-6 and the CIA were using LSD as a weapon against the angry protestors of the sixties and turned them into 'flower children' who were too tripped out to organize a revolution.

Dr Timothy Leary the LSD guru of the sixties was a CIA puppet. Funds and drugs for Leary's research came from the CIA and Leary says that Cord Meyer, the CIA agent in charge of funding the sixties LSD counter culture has "helped me to understand my political cultural role more clearly".

In 1998, I was sent 3000 LSD doses on blotting paper by MI-5 with pictures of the European union flag on them. The MI-5 man who sent them told my father this was a government 'signature' and this LSD was called 'Europa'.
This global drugs trade controlled by British intelligence is worth at least 500 billion a year. This is more than the global oil trade and the economy in Britain and America is totally dependent on this drug money. 

Mafia crime boss John Gotti exposed the situation when asked in court if he was involved in drug trafficking.
He replied "No we can't compete with the government".

I believe this was only a half truth because the mafia and the CIA are the same group at the upper levels. In Britain, the MI-6 drug money is laundered through the Bank of England, Barclays Bank and other household name companies. The drug money is passed from account to account until its origins are lost in a huge web of transactions.

The drug money comes out 'cleaner' but not totally clean. Diamonds are then bought with this money from the corrupt diamond business families like the Oppenheimers.
These diamonds are then sold and the drug money is clean. MI-6 and the CIA are also responsible for the crack cocaine epidemic in Britain and America. In 1978, MI-6 and the CIA were in south America researching the effects of the natives smoking 'basuco' cocaine paste. This has the same effect as crack cocaine. They saw that the strength and addiction potential was far greater than ordinary cocaine and created crack cocaine from the basuco formula.

MI-6 and the CIA then flooded Britain and America with crack.

Two years later, in 1980, Britain and America were starting to see the first signs of the crack cocaine epidemic on the streets. On august 23, 1987, in a rural community south of Little Rock in America, two teenage boys named Kevin Ives and Don Henry were murdered and dismembered after witnessing a CIA cocaine drop that was part of a CIA drug trafficking operation based at a small airport in Mena, Arkansas.
Bill Clinton was the governor of Arkansas at the time. Bill Clinton was involved with the CIA at this time and $100 million worth of cocaine was coming through the Mena, Arkansas airport each month.
For proof see the books 'Compromise' and 'Dope Inc'.
On my father's international MI-6 drug runs, whatever fell off the back of the lorry so to speak he would keep and we would sell it in Britain. As long as my father was meeting the speedboats from Morocco in the Costa del Sol and then moving the lorry loads of cannabis through their MI-6, IRA lorry business into Britain every month, British intelligence were happy.
As long as my father was moving shipments of cocaine out of Rome every month, MI5 and MI6 were happy. If my father kept a bit to sell himself no one cared because there was enough drugs and money to go round in this £500 billion a year global drugs trade. The ones who were really paying were the people addicted. Who were paying with suffering.
But karma always catches up and both myself and my father became addicted to heroin in later years and my father died addicted, and poor in prison under very strange circumstances. Today, I am clean and drug-free and wish to help stop the untold suffering this global drugs trade causes.
The intelligence agencies have always used addictive drugs as a weapon against the masses to bring in their long term plan for a one world government, a one world police force designed to be NATO and a micro chipped population known as the New World Order. As the population is in a drug or alcohol-induced trance watching 'Coronation Street', the new world order is being crept in behind them.
To properly expose this global intelligence run drugs trade we need to expose the key players in this area:
Tibor Rosenbaum, a MOSSAD agent and head of the Geneva based Banque du Credit international. This bank was the forerunner to the notorious Bank of Credit and Commerce international (BCCI) which is a major intelligence drug money laundering bank. 'Life' magazine exposed Rosenbaum's bank as a money launderer for the Meyer Lanksky American organized crime family and Tibor Rosenbaum funded and supported 'Permindex' the MI6 assassination unit which was at the heart of the John F. Kennedy assassination.
Robert Vesco, sponsored by the Swiss branch of the Rothchilds and part of the American connection to the Medellin drug cartel in Colombia.
 Sir Francis de Guingand, former head of British intelligence, now living in south Africa (and every head of MI5 and MI6 has been involved in the drug world before and after him).
 
Henry Keswick, chairman of Jardine Matheson which is one of the biggest drug trafficking operations in the world. His brother John Keswick is chairman of the bank of England.
Sir Martin Wakefield Jacomb, Bank of England director from 1987 to 1995, Barclays Bank Deputy Chairman in 1985, Telegraph newspapers director in 1986 (This is the reason why this can of worms doesn't get out in the mainstream media. The people who are perpetrating these crimes control most of the mainstream media. In America former director of the CIA William Casey was, before his death in 1987, head of the council of the media network ABC. Many insiders refer to ABC as 'The CIA network.)
George Bush, Snr, former President and former head of the CIA and America's leading drug baron who has fronted more wars on drugs than any other president. Which in reality is just a method to eliminate competition. A whole book could be written on George Bush's involvement in the global drug trade but it is well-covered in the book 'Dark Alliance' by investigative journalist Gary Webb.
Gary Webb was found dead with two gunshot wounds to the back of his head with a revolver. The case was declared a 'suicide'. You figure that out. Gary Webb as well as myself and other investigators, found that much of this 'black ops' drug money is being used to fund projects classified above top secret.

These projects include the building and maintaining of deep level underground bases in,
Dulce in New exico
Pine Gap in Australia
Snowy mountains in Australia
The Nyala range in Africa
west of Kindu in Africa
next to the Libyan border in Egypt
Mount Blanc in Switzerland
Narvik in Scandinavia
Gottland island in Sweden,
...and many other places around the world (more about these underground bases in my next issue).
The information on this global drugs trade run by the intelligence agencies desperately needs to get out on a large scale.
Any information, comments or feedback to help me with my work would be greatly welcomed.

L.Ron Hubbard’s Lifelong Intelligence Career who fronted for MI6-CIA -  the real owners and controllers of Scientology 
A record from the office of the Secretary of the Navy and the Chief of Naval Operations shows that Hubbard took an “Intelligence Course” from 21 October 1941 to 11 November 1941. . Here is the record from the SECNAV/CNO office files . It says – based on an order that happened on August 11, 1941 (410811), an order was issued on September 30, 1941 that nominated Hubbard to take an Intelligence Course. 15 October 1941 – Office of Naval Intelligence Foreign Intelligence Branch and its Special Intelligence Section (OP-16-F-9) was officially shifted to William Donovan’s Office of the Coordinator of Information, where they went under the COI Special Intelligence Section headed by David K.E. Bruce.   - OP-16-F-9 was now under David K.E. Bruce. At the time of the transfer, thirteen agents had been recruited. Ron Hubbard was one of them.  (See 67 in the References) 20 October 1941 – Hubbard moves to the Explorers Club in New York.  73  21 October 1941 to 11 November 1941 Hubbard took the Intelligence Course. He did this when all Naval Intelligence was now underneath William Donovan. This secret Intelligence Course was done outside of the United States. The proof is this letter that was sent to Hubbard while he was taking the Intelligence Course.  A Century of Naval Intelligence documents that – “At the outbreak of World War II, the Special Intelligence Section (OP-16-F-9) comprised one retired officer, two Naval Reserve officers, two enlisted sailors, and one Naval Reserve officer undergoing training in London.”

Hill v Church of Scientology of Toronto February 20, 1995- July 20, 1995. 2 S.C.R. 1130 was a libel case against the Church of Scientology, in which the Supreme Court of Canada interpreted Ontario's libel law in relation to the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

After consideration, the Supreme Court of Canada determined that it would not follow the actual malice standard set forth in the famous United States Supreme Court case of New York Times Co. v. Sullivan, 376 U.S. 254 (1964).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hill_v_Church_of_Scientology_of_Toronto

 Overview

On 17 September 1984 Morris Manning, a lawyer working for the Church, and representatives of the Church of Scientology held a press conference on the courthouse steps in Toronto. Manning, wearing his barrister's gown, read from and commented upon allegations in a notice of motion by Scientology, intending to commence criminal contempt proceedings against a Crown Attorney, Casey Hill. The motion alleged Hill had misled a judge and had breached orders sealing certain documents belonging to Scientology in R. v. Church of Scientology of Toronto.

At the contempt proceeding where the appellants were seeking a fine or imprisonment against the defendant, the allegations against Hill were found to be completely untrue and without foundation. Thus Hill launched a lawsuit for damages in libel against the appellants. Both appellants were found jointly liable for general damages of C$300,000 and Scientology alone was liable for aggravated damages of C$500,000 and punitive damages of C$800,000. The judgement was affirmed in a 1993 decision by the Court of Appeal for Ontario. The major issues raised in this appeal were: Was the common law of defamation valid in light of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and whether the jury's award of damages could stand.

The Charter, interpreting the common law and freedom of expression

Appellant's arguments

The Church of Scientology contended that the common law of defamation in Canada failed to evolve with Canadian society. Too much emphasis in the common law had been placed on the need to protect the reputation of plaintiffs at the expense of freedom of expression. This, they argued, was an unwarranted restriction imposed in a manner that cannot be justified in a free and democratic society that could survive a limitations clausechallenge. The appellants added that if the element of government action was insufficient to attract Charter scrutiny, the principles of the common law ought to be interpreted, even in a purely private law action, in a manner consistent with the Charter. This, they argued, could be achieved only by the adoption of the "actual malice" standard of liability found in the Supreme Court of the United States in the case of New York Times Co. v. Sullivan.

Qualified privilege attaches to the occasion upon which the communication is made, and not to the communication itself. The legal effect of the defence of qualified privilege is to rebut the inference, which normally arises from the publication of defamatory words, that they were spoken with malice. Where the occasion is shown to be privileged, the bona fides of the defendant is presumed and the defendant is free to publish, with impunity, remarks which may be defamatory and untrue about the plaintiff. The privilege is not absolute, however, and can be defeated if the dominant motive for publishing the statement is actual or express malice. (Malice, in this context, is established by showing the defendant spoke dishonestly, or in knowing or reckless disregard for the truth.) Qualified privilege may also be defeated when the limits of the duty or interest have been exceeded. The fact that an occasion is privileged does not necessarily protect all that is said or written on that occasion. The information communicated must be reasonably appropriate in the context of the circumstances existing on the occasion when that information was given.[1]

The Court's reasons

In two opinions (a majority opinion written by Cory J. per La Forest, Gonthier, Cory, McLachlin, Iacobucci and Major JJ., and a concurrence in result by L'Heureux-Dubé J.), the Court rejected those arguments while continuing to apply RWDSU v. Dolphin Delivery Ltd., [1986] 2 S.C.R. 573, that the Charter cannot rewrite the common law, though the common law should be interpreted according to general Charter principles. This did not mean the Court had to adopt the "actual malice" standard of libel from American jurisprudence.

In refusing to change Canadian law and bringing it more into line with "actual malice" standard applied in the US law (following the New York Times Co. v. Sullivancase) Cory J., writing for the majority, stated (at ¶ 138):

Freedom of speech, like any other freedom, is subject to the law and must be balanced against the essential need of the individuals to protect their reputation. The words of Diplock J. in Silkin v. Beaverbrook Newspapers Ltd., [1958] 1 W.L.R. 743, at pp. 745-46, are worth repeating:

"Freedom of speech, like the other fundamental freedoms, is freedom under the law, and over the years the law has maintained a balance between, on the one hand, the right of the individual… whether he is in public life or not, to his unsullied reputation if he deserves it, and on the other hand… the right of the public… to express their views honestly and fearlessly on matters of public interest, even though that involves strong criticism of the conduct of public people."

In L'Heureux-Dubé's concurring reasons, her analysis of the Charter issue applying to common law is succinctly stated: (at ¶ 206):

First, however, in order to dispel any possible confusion regarding the applicability of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms to the common law, I note that this issue can be easily summarized in the following two principles, both of which were first articulated by McIntyre J. in RWDSU v. Dolphin Delivery Ltd., [1986] 2 S.C.R. 573:

1. The Charter does not directly apply to the common law unless it is the basis of some governmental action.

2. Even though the Charter does not directly apply to the common law absent government action, the common law must nonetheless be developed in accordance with Charter values. (To the same effect, see R. v. Salituro, [1991] 3 S.C.R. 654, Dagenais v. Canadian Broadcasting Corp., [1994] 3 S.C.R. 835, and R. v. Park, [1995] 2 S.C.R. 836, per L'Heureux-Dubé J.)

In other words, the basic rule is that absent government action, the Charter applies only indirectly to the common law.

Factual background

As in all actions for libel, the factual background is extremely important and must be set out in some detail. At the time the defamatory statement were made, Casey Hill was employed as counsel with the Crown Law Office, Criminal Division of the Ministry of the Attorney General for the Province of Ontario. He had given advice to the Ontario Provincial Province Police ("OPP") regarding a warrant obtained on March 1, 1983 which authorized a searched warrant on March 3 and 4, 1983, approximately 250,000 documents, comprising over 2 million pages of material, were seized. These documents were stored in some 900 boxes at an OPP building in Toronto.[2]

Result

The Supreme Court upholds the Ontario Court of Appeal decision and the underlying jury award of general, aggravated and punitive damages.

Largest libel award in Canada

The jury award that was upheld in this appeal was the largest libel award in Canadian history. Barrister Manning and the Church of Scientology were found jointly liable for general damages of C$300,000. Scientology alone was liable for aggravated damages of C$500,000 and punitive damages of $800,000, making Scientology's total liability C$1,600,000. It was not until 2008 that this record was broken [1].

Church of Scientology v. Sweden (8282/78) was a case decided by the European Commission of Human Rights in 1980.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_Scientology_v._Sweden

Background

In 1975, a Swedish newspaper published certain statements made in the course of lecture by a professor of theology, including that "Scientology in the most untruthful movement there is. It is the cholera of spiritual life. That is how dangerous it is".

Request by the Church of Scientology to start proceedings against the publisher was rejected by the Supreme Court.

Decision

The commission declared the application inadmissible. Concerning Article 9 of the Convention (freedom of religion), it noted that the Commission does not exclude the possibility of criticism or 'agitation' against a church or religious group reaching such a level that it might endanger freedom of religion and where a tolerance of such behaviour by the authorities could engage State responsibility. However, the Commission does not consider that such an issue arises on the facts of the present case (Para. 5).

Concerning Article 6 (access to court), the Commission reaffirmed that the right of an individual to protect his reputation can be regarded as a civil right protected by Article 6, but did not extend this protection to a group, when the national legislation didn't foresee that (Para. 19).

European Commission of Human Rights

The Church of Scientology and Another v. Sweden

[1979] E.C.C. 511

The Commission held that an injunction imposed by the Swedish Marketing Court on the phrase �an invaluable aid to measuring man�s mental state and changes in it� used by the Church of Scientology in advertisements for the sale of its �E-meter,� as being misleading advertising, fell outside the scope of Article 9 of the European Convention of Human Rights (freedom of religion0, that it was caught by Article 10 (1) of the Convention (freedom of expression) but that it was �necessary� in a democratic society within the meaning of Article 10 (2) for the protection of the rights of theirs, and that there was no discrimination under Article 14 of the Convention. The application was therefore dismissed as inadmissible.

 

Freedom of religion. Religious cult objects. Marketing. Advertising.

There is a difference between advertisements by a religious group which are informational or descriptive in character and those which offer objects for sale and so are commercial. An advertisement of objects for sale, even if they are religious objects central to the practices of the cult, represents the manifestation of a desire to market goods for profit rather than the manifestation of a belief in practical terms. Consequently, the wording of such an advertisement � that the article is �an invaluable aid to measuring man�s mental state and changes in it� � falls outside the proper scope of Article 9 (1) of the European Convention on Human Rights, and the subjection of the wording to the ordinary secular rules on misleading advertising does not constitute an interference with the rights of the advertising Church and its members to manifest their religion or beliefs.

 

Advertising. Freedom of expression. Restrictions on the permitted wording of advertisements constitute an interference with the freedom to impart ideas under Article 10 (1) of the European Convention on Human Rights when the advertiser is a religious body and the subject matter of the advertisement is a cult object.

 

Advertising. Freedom of expression. Commercial �speech� as such is covered by Article 10 (1) of the European Convention on Human Rights, but the level of protection it receives must be less than that accorded to the expression of �political� ideas, in the broadest sense, with which the values underpinning the concept of freedom of expression in the Convention are chiefly concerned.

OPINION

We consider two former ministers' claims that the Church of Scientology forced them to provide labor in violation of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act.

I

This case centers around the Church of Scientology International (the Church) and its component Sea Organization (or Sea Org). The Church exercises overall ecclesiastical management of the Scientology religion. The Sea Org is an elite religious order of the Church and acts as Scientology's evangelical wing. The Sea Org demands much of its members, renders strict discipline, imposes stringent ethical and lifestyle constraints, and goes to great efforts to retain clergy and to preserve the integrity of the ministry. These features of the Sea Org flow from the teachings and goals of the Scientology religion.

Scientology teaches that man is an immortal spiritual being that, over time, becomes distressed as his mind experiences moments of pain or lowered consciousness. Scientology maintains, however, that man can overcome that distress—he can become “clear”—by using methods developed by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. Scientology aims to disseminate Hubbard's teachings to “clear the planet”—that is, to help enough people to overcome spiritual distress to free the planet of crime, war, and irrationality. That effort is entrusted largely to the Sea Org.

Before embarking on that effort, each Sea Org member makes a symbolic one-billion-year commitment to serve the Church. A member may make that commitment only after undergoing extensive training and study, passing a fitness exam, and obtaining a Church-issued certification attesting that the applicant is qualified for Sea Org life. During their training, Sea Org members learn that the ministry will require them to work long hours without material compensation, to live communally, to adhere to strict ethical standards, and to be subject to firm discipline for ethical transgressions. The Church, in turn, agrees to provide Sea Org members with all living necessities and a weekly allowance for incidental items.

The Sea Org's lifestyle constraints include strict policies on outside communications, marriage, and children. Sea Org members' mail is censored and phone calls are monitored as part of ministry discipline and policy. Because Sea Org life may at any moment require a member indefinitely to serve anywhere in the world, the Church prohibits Sea Org members from having children unless they leave the order. A Sea Org member who chooses to have a child must transfer out of the Sea Org (but can still work for the Church). And staff members in Scientology's Religious Technology Center (the Center)—which promotes the orthodox practice of Scientology—are permitted to marry only other Center staff.

Sea Org members learn that strict discipline is central to preserving the integrity of Scientology's ministry. If a member fails to meet Scientology's ethical standards, he may be disciplined with verbal warnings or rebukes, loss of privileges, removal from a post, diminution of responsibilities, manual labor, or expulsion. Sea Org members also participate in religious training and practices, including “confessionals.” In a confessional, a member confesses transgressions and may then be absolved or disciplined.

This demanding, ascetic life is not for everyone—and is not even for many of those who go through the Sea Org's extensive training and preparation. Members thus often wish to leave the Sea Org for a more normal life. A member may formally withdraw his vows and leave the ministry through a process called “routing out.” Routing out allows a member to remain a Scientologist in good standing. The process involves filling out a form and normally includes participating in Scientology ethics programs. Routing out can take weeks or months. During that time members are excused from their posts but are expected to continue serving the Church by performing chores.

Some Scientologists leave the Sea Org without routing out—a practice known as “blowing”—but the Sea Org discourages members from doing so. When a member leaves without routing out, other members may band together to try to locate that member and attempt to persuade him to return to the Sea Org. Scientologists believe that such an effort—known as a “blow drill”—is integral to their efforts to clear the planet and to help their members (even departed ones) achieve salvation. So important is this to the Church that a blown member may be disciplined if he returns or may be declared a “suppressive person.” Being so declared is akin to being excommunicated or shunned, and can cause blown members to lose contact with Scientologist family or friends.

II

Marc and Claire Headley were raised in the Scientology religion and joined the Sea Org in their teens—Marc in 1989, Claire in 1991. They married in 1992. Like others who join the Sea Org, they knew that they would work long, hard hours without material compensation. Despite this and the many other challenges of Sea Org life, Marc and Claire remained in the Sea Org until 2005. They accept that they were ministers during their time with the Sea Org. Throughout their ministerial service they repeatedly showed by word and deed that they enjoyed their work, performed it willingly, and were helping to further the Sea Org's mission to “clear the planet.”

A

Marc and Claire served mostly at Gold Base (known also as the Base), the Church's 500–acre international headquarters in Gilman Hot Springs, California. They each worked more than 100 hours a week, while the Church paid their living expenses and provided them each with a $50 weekly stipend. Marc created and produced religious training films and films explaining Scientology to the public. Claire oversaw the Center's internal operations and supervised various aspects of church governance and Scientology practice. She advanced to a senior ecclesiastical position.

In keeping with Church disciplinary policy, the Church censored the Headleys' mail, monitored their phone calls, and required them to obtain permission to access the Internet. In addition to their normal work, Marc and Claire were at times assigned manual labor, sometimes as discipline. This labor was often yard or kitchen work, but some of it was more difficult or unpleasant. In 2004, for example, Marc (along with hundreds of others) was assigned to hand-clean dried human excrement from a large aeration pond. This two-day assignment was levied as discipline for problems in Marc's work. As another example, in a six- to eight-month period in 2002, Claire was denied dining hall privileges, had to subsist on protein bars and water, and lost about thirty pounds.

Marc and Claire experienced and observed verbal reprimands and physical abuse while in the Sea Org. A senior Scientology executive physically struck Marc on two occasions and another official punched him on another occasion. A co-worker shoved Claire once. Marc and Claire allege that they saw senior Scientology leaders physically abuse other staff.

As noted above, Sea Org members may not have children while in the ministry. Yet in the mid–1990s Claire twice became pregnant. Each time she had an abortion. She testified that she was told that she would be placed on manual labor and required to participate in confessionals if she did not have the first abortion. She testified further that she was told that she would face “consequences” if she did not have the second abortion. She says that other Sea Org women who became pregnant were assigned manual labor (such as yard or kitchen work) as co-religionists tried to convince them to have abortions.

In keeping with the Religious Technology Center's restrictive marriage policy, Claire was told in 2004 that she would either have to leave her position with the Center (and take a different position with the Church) or divorce Marc. (Claire worked for the Center but Marc did not.) Claire testified that she “plead[ed] for [her] position” and considered divorcing Marc. But the Center stood by its policy and Claire left the Center (or started the process of leaving the Center) late in 2004.

B

Throughout this period, Marc and Claire had innumerable opportunities to leave the Church. They lived outside of the Base and traveled freely to and from the Base almost daily. Marc traveled extensively throughout the United States and to Europe, left the state to visit his father and other relatives, and traveled throughout Los Angeles to visit family and friends. Claire similarly lived outside the Base, flew on commercial jets, and traveled away from the Base many times to visit family. Each of them had access to vehicles and to phones and the Internet. Marc testified that, in his time with the Sea Org, hundreds of Scientologists had left the Sea Org without even routing out.

Despite the challenges of Sea Org life, Marc and Claire did not leave the Sea Org until 2005. The only time Marc had expressed a desire to leave was in 1990. He was given a routing-out form and was told the risks of leaving. After thinking it over he (as he later put it) realized that he had “made a few friends in high places” and decided to stay. Claire never asked to leave the Sea Org.

C

Marc and Claire contend that they did not leave the Sea Org because they believed that doing so would have been difficult or even risky due to the Base's extensive security, the Sea Org's blow drills, and its approach to members who leave or wish to leave.

Gold Base's security measures made it hard to leave unnoticed. The Base—which has faced security threats and which houses more than $100 million in audiovisual equipment—has security measures that include a perimeter fence, cameras, motion detectors, alarms, observation posts, and guards.

Security guards monitored those thought to be disaffected with Sea Org life or who were suspected of wanting to leave the Sea Org. The Headleys both testified that security or Church personnel were at times posted where they lived to make sure that they did not leave. Security cameras were installed over the Headleys' house in 2001 or 2002. At times the Headleys and other Sea Org members were even restricted to the Base, and Marc and Claire each identify an occasion when they were assigned an escort when traveling away from the Base.

Even though they still had many opportunities to leave, the Headleys contend that the Sea Org would have tried to get them to return. The Sea Org, as we have related, puts a premium on retaining its ministers and encouraging those who leave the ministry to do so through formal processes. To that end, the Sea Org tracks blown members, and has sent dozens of people to locate and to try to persuade members to return. In a few instances, Sea Org members have used physical force or restraint in blow drills (even though the Church directs them not to do so). In the vast majority of cases in which blown Sea Org members have returned, however, the record shows only that the member was located and persuaded to return—not that the member was physically forced to return. One witness on which the Headleys rely—a former Sea Org member who went on every blow drill from 1996 to 2003—recalled only one instance of even arguable physical force during a blow drill. There, a member was touched on the shoulder and might have been pushed toward a car.

Finally, because leaving the Sea Org is considered a transgression, members who returned to Gold Base after blowing were generally restricted to the Base and assigned a job (usually manual labor). Claire testified, moreover, that it was considered a major transgression to want to leave the Sea Org and that those who discussed leaving faced discipline. A senior Sea Org leader told Claire that she had “foregone” her right to leave the Sea Org and that, if she left, she would be brought back.

Yet Marc and Claire each successfully left the ministry, without routing out, the first time either tried to do so. Marc left in January 2005 after being told that he was under investigation for embezzlement and that he could be assigned to manual labor. Claire left soon after that. Though both were followed and approached by co-religionists, neither was harmed, both continued on, and neither returned to the Church.

D

Looking back on his time with the Sea Org, Marc testified thus: “I wasn't saying to myself I'm being held against my will. I think subliminally, I think that I wanted to leave but whether or not I was being held against my will, I don't think I had those thoughts.” During his Sea Org service, Marc repeatedly said that he enjoyed his experiences with the Church, his promotions, and his work. On several occasions, he said, he stayed in the Sea Org only because of Claire.

Claire testified that, throughout her time with the Sea Org, she served the religion, believed that she was furthering its goals, believed in Scientology, and thought that serving in the Sea Org was the right thing to do. She affirmed that she was a committed Sea Org member for many years, came to doubt her commitment, and left successfully the only time she tried to do so. While she was with the Sea Org, Claire said that she enjoyed her work and she spoke well of the ministry. She encouraged her siblings to join the Sea Org. In her deposition, Claire did not contest that she could have left the Sea Org earlier but said that she lacked outside contacts or financial support, did not know where to go, and did not want to lose contact with Marc. She was in contact with the Sea Org for a month or two after she left to see if she could route out and maintain good standing with the Church. She also considered returning to the Sea Org to route out.

III

In 2009 Marc sued the Church—and Claire sued the Church and the Center—under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act. (They also brought federal and state minimum wage claims, but they have abandoned those claims.) Enacted largely “to combat” the “transnational crime” of “trafficking in persons,” 22 U.S.C. § 7101(a), (b)(24), the Act makes it a crime “knowingly” to “provide[ ] or obtain[ ] the labor or services of a person by any one of, or by any combination of, the following means:”

(1) by means of force, threats of force, physical restraint, or threats of physical restraint to that person or another person;

(2) by means of serious harm or threats of serious harm to that person or another person; [or]

(4) by means of any scheme, plan, or pattern intended to cause the person to believe that, if that person did not perform such labor or services, that person or another person would suffer serious harm or physical restraint․

18 U.S.C. § 1589(a). “Serious harm” means

any harm, whether physical or nonphysical, including psychological, financial, or reputational harm, that is sufficiently serious, under all the surrounding circumstances, to compel a reasonable person of the same background and in the same circumstances to perform or to continue performing labor or services in order to avoid incurring that harm.

Id. § 1589(c)(2). A victim of a section 1589(a) violation may sue the perpetrator for damages. Id. § 1595(a).

Although they alleged isolated instances of physical force, Marc and Claire grounded their forced-labor claims on the theory that the Church and Center psychologically coerced them to provide labor. Specifically, they contended that the Church and Center violated the Act by causing them to believe that they could not leave the ministry or that they would face serious harm in doing so. They cited evidence that it was difficult to leave the Base unnoticed, that the Sea Org tries to get blown members to return, and that the Sea Org disciplines those who wish or try to leave. They also emphasized that Sea Org life was hard—noting evidence about discipline, verbal reprimands, physical abuse, shunning, and the Sea Org's policies regarding marriage and children. These features, they maintained, constituted psychological coercion sufficient to entitle them to recover.

The defendants contended that the Headleys had not established a genuine issue of material fact on their forced-labor claims and that, in any event, those claims were barred by the ministerial exception. That doctrine—derived from the First Amendment's religion clauses—provides religious employers with an affirmative defense to a claim by a minister when adjudicating the claim would infringe an employer's religious liberty or would improperly entangle a court in religious matters.

The district court granted summary judgment for the defendants. The court first held that Marc's allegations of three instances of physical force against him in 15 years did not alone raise a triable issue of material fact on his forced-labor claim. The court emphasized that, despite those assaults, the record was clear that Marc was able to leave the Church throughout that time and thus could have avoided providing labor.

The court then held that Marc's and Claire's claims of psychologically coerced labor were barred by the ministerial exception. The court explained that the other conduct identified to support Marc's and Claire's forced-labor claims—such as Sea Org discipline, working conditions, censorship of communications, and efforts to retain ministers—was doctrinally motivated. Examining that conduct, the court explained, would force the court to analyze the criteria the defendants use to choose ministers, the reasonableness of the defendants' methods of enforcing Church policy, and the means used to encourage ministers to remain with the Church. To determine whether the defendants' “means of persuading members to remain” with the Sea Org fall within the Act, for example, “a trier of fact must inquire into Scientology's policies, practices, and scriptures.” Because in its view the ministerial exception precludes that and similar inquiries, the court ruled that the claims were barred.

The Headleys timely appealed from the orders granting summary judgment.

IV

The Headleys contend here that the district court erred in ruling that the ministerial exception bars their forced-labor claims. They insist that adjudicating their claims would neither infringe the defendants' religious liberty nor improperly entangle courts in the church-minister relationship. They maintain further that once the ministerial exception is cast aside, they each have established a genuine issue of material fact on their forced-labor claims.

A

In our view, the text of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act resolves this case. The Act bars an employer from obtaining another's labor “by means of” force, physical restraint, serious harm, threats, or an improper scheme. 18 U.S.C. § 1589(a)(1), (a)(2), (a)(4). That text is a problem for the Headleys because the record contains little evidence that the defendants obtained the Headleys' labor “by means of” serious harm, threats, or other improper methods.

Rather, the record overwhelmingly shows that the Headleys joined and voluntarily worked for the Sea Org because they believed that it was the right thing to do, because they enjoyed it, and because they thought that by working they were honoring the commitment that they each made and to which they adhered. We think it telling that the Headleys protest very little about their actual day-to-day jobs with the Sea Org—for Marc, film creation and production; for Claire, management and supervision. Instead, they focus their attack on the discipline, lifestyle, and familial constraints imposed as part of Sea Org life. But the record does not suggest that the defendants obtained the Headleys' labor “by means of” those features of Sea Org life. To the contrary, the record supports the conclusion that such features caused Marc and Claire to leave the Sea Org and thus to stop providing labor. Marc left the Sea Org after he was told that he could be subjected to manual labor and could otherwise face discipline. Claire left after she was unable (in light of a restrictive marriage policy) to keep her position in the Religious Technology Center—the very position in which, she now contends, she was long forced to labor.

The Headleys have simply not marshaled enough evidence to satisfy the textual demands of section 1589. That text requires that serious harm befall an employee “if she did not continue to work” or a threat that “compel[s][her] to remain ” with the employer. United States v. Dann, 652 F.3d 1160, 1170 (9th Cir.2011) (emphasis added). Here, the record shows that the adverse consequences cited by the Headleys are overwhelmingly not of the type that caused them to continue their work and to remain with the Sea Org.

The one adverse consequence the Headleys could have faced, had they taken any of their many opportunities before 2005 to leave the Sea Org, was to have been declared “suppressive persons” and thus potentially to have lost contact with family, friends, or each other. But that consequence is not “serious harm”—and warning of such a consequence is not a “threat”—under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act. In applying the Act, we must distinguish between”Dimproper threats or coercion and permissible warnings of adverse but legitimate consequences.” United States v. Bradley, 390 F.3d 145, 151 (1st Cir.2004), judgment vacated on other grounds, 545 U.S. 1101, 125 S.Ct. 2543, 162 L.Ed.2d 271 (2005); cf. Dann, 652 F.3d at 1170 (Act aims at serious trafficking and threats of dire consequences). This case involves the latter. A church is entitled to stop associating with someone who abandons it. Paul v. Watchtower Bible & Tract Soc'y of N.Y., Inc., 819 F.2d 875, 883 (9th Cir.1987) (holding that the free exercise clause protects the practice of shunning, explaining that when “[t]he members of [a][c]hurch” “no longer want to associate with” someone who has “abandon[ed]” them, those members”are free” under the First Amendment “to make that choice”). A church may also warn that it will stop associating with members who do not act in accordance with church doctrine. The former is a legitimate consequence, the latter a legitimate warning. Cf. Bradley, 390 F.3d at 151. Neither supports a forced-labor claim. We emphasize that the Headleys had innumerable opportunities to leave the defendants. They lived outside of the Base and had access to vehicles, phones, and the Internet. They traveled away from the Base often. The security that they decry afforded them a multitude of opportunities to leave, as hundreds of other Sea Org members had done—whatever their commitments and whatever they may have been told regarding the permissibility of leaving. For example, although Marc had an escort on a trip to New York, his testimony makes clear that he could have just left despite his escort; and Claire left the Sea Org during a trip to an optometrist—despite the escort that was accompanying her. They did not take any of their many opportunities to leave until 2005 and chose instead to stay with the defendants and to continue providing their ministerial services. They have not established a genuine issue of fact regarding whether they were Victims of forced-labor violations.

B

The district court rested its rulings on the ministerial exception. The district court was right to recognize that courts may not scrutinize many aspects of the minister-church relationship. See, e.g., Hosanna–Tabor Evangelical Lutheran Church & Sch. v. EEOC, ––– U.S. ––––, ––––, 132 S.Ct. 694, 702, 181 L.Ed.2d 650 (2012) (decision to fire a minister); Alcazar v. Corp. of the Catholic Archbishop of Seattle, 598 F.3d 668, 672–73 (9th Cir.2010), adopted as relevant on rehearing en banc, 627 F.3d 1288, 1290 (9th Cir.2010) (en banc) (ministerial pay); Werft v. Desert Sw. Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, 377 F.3d 1099, 1103 (9th Cir.2004) (per curiam) (certain working conditions); Elvig v. Calvin Presbyterian Church, 375 F.3d 951, 969 (9th Cir.2004) (suspensions, removal of certain duties, terminations, or refusal to circulate forms that are necessary to authorize further pastoral employment). Here, moreover, the defendants maintain that the vast majority of the conduct on which the Headleys' claims rest—stringent lifestyle constraints, assignment to manual labor, strict discipline, the requirement to leave the ministry only by routing out, efforts to retain ministers, and the practice of declaring some departed members “suppressive persons”—is religiously motivated or otherwise protected. But because the Headleys have not established a genuine issue of material fact regarding whether the defendants obtained their labor “by means of” improper conduct, we need not reach the question of whether the ministerial exception would bar a claim under the Act. And because we need not reach any constitutional issues, we also need not decide whether the Act would have to be given a limiting construction to avoid constitutional problems. Cf. NLRB v. Catholic Bishop of Chicago, 440 U.S. 490, 507, 99 S.Ct. 1313, 59 L.Ed.2d 533 (1979).

Likewise, we do not decide how the Headleys might have fared under a different statute or on other legal theories. The Headleys abandoned claims under federal and state minimum wage laws. And although the Headleys marshaled evidence of potentially tortious conduct, they did not bring claims for assault, battery, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, or any of a number of other theories that might have better fit the evidence. The Headleys thus wagered all on a statute enacted “to combat” the “transnational crime” of “trafficking in persons”—particularly defenseless, vulnerable immigrant women and children. 22 U.S.C. § 7101(a), (b)(24); see id. § 7101(b)(1), (2), (4), (17), (22). Whatever bad acts the defendants (or others) may have committed, the record does not allow the conclusion that the Church or the Center violated the Trafficking Victims Protection Act.1

AFFIRMED.

FOOTNOTES

1.  On summary judgment the district court struck, as not based upon reliable principles or methods, the declaration of Dr. Robert Levine, an expert in the psychology of persuasion and mind control. Dr. Levine offered a purported expert opinion about the psychological coercion that the Headleys allegedly endured while with the Church and the Center. The Headleys contend that this ruling was an abuse of discretion. We disagree. Dr. Levine based his opinion on his review of the Headleys' deposition transcripts and related exhibits. He never spoke with the Headleys in forming his opinion. The Headleys cite no authority that reading only deposition transcripts is considered a reliable method in the field of the psychology of persuasion and mind control. The district court had discretion to strike the declaration. See Fed.R.Evid. 702(c).

Mat Pesch was a Sea Org member for almost thirty years. After routing out ijn 2005, Mat and his wife Amy Scobee went "under the radar" and wrote the now famous "Little Dickie Bedtime Stories." Link: http://www.forum.exscn.net/showthread... These stories helped to expose David Miscavige and the greed and violence inside the Church of Scientology. Mat Pesch was the Treasury Secretary of the Flag Service Organization (FSO) in Clearwater, Florida. In this interview with Jeffrey Augustine, Mat recounts his experiences as Treasury Secretary in the 1990's. Mat corroborates the fact that Alexander Jentzsch was sexually molested at twelve years of age at Flag Land Base by Marie Warren, a 40 year old Sea Org member. After the sexual molestation was discovered by Church officials, the police were not called. Instead, Mat was ordered to find money for the airline tickets needed to fly Alexander and the Sea Org rapist out of the jurisdiction of local and state law enforcement. Mat offers his opinion that the Ideal Orgs were an "unusual solution" to Flag's enormous Advanced Payments liability.

Mat Pesch ex Scientologist states knew knows of children and adult females being raped, at the Scientology bases, and are never reported to the police. All that would happen is that the people involved would be flown out of the area by Scientology … Mat Pesch was the secretary who had to organize the funds to pay for  airfares to the people involved in the rape of children and adults out of the area …

The make girls to get abortions and deliberately drive the pregnant girls to different area to obtain their abortions…

$1.7 million per week from the main Flag Organization

All up $2.2 to $2.5 million income of tax free money…

What happens to the money

Some expenses have to be paid

And the rest of the money goes upline..

Church of Scientology International ….

All the money goes into an executive for Church of Scientology International ….

Who decide what will be given back to the local Org base.

The amount of money given back to the local organization at the finance meetings does not increase each month, even if the local base brings in more income …

$100,000 of free auditing for Tom Cruise and his family ..

Mat Pesch  reported Tom and his Family for getting free ordering … to David Miscavige

So Mat Pesch ends of getting sent to work in the mill to make furniture……. from a senior executive..

In the late 1980’s was about 800 to 850 staff at Flag and...

Now 1,200 to 1,300 people …

The employees that work for Scientology are paid very little money in wages…

They can not afford their room and board so they work extra hours to pay for their room and board….

like cleaning hotel rooms, washing dishes etc …

There is $1.5 billion plus dollars in assets …

David Miscavige (/mɪˈskævɪdʒ/) is the leader of the Church of Scientology. 

His official title is Chairman of the Board of the Religious Technology Center (RTC), a corporation that controls the trademarks and copyrights of Dianetics and Scientology. 

Miscavige was a deputy to church founder L. Ron Hubbard (a "Commodore's messenger") while he was a teenager.

He rose to a leadership position by the early 1980s and was named Chairman of the Board of RTC in 1987.

 Official church biographies describe Miscavige as "the ecclesiastical leader of the Scientology religion".
Since David Miscavige  assumed his leadership position, there have been a number of allegations made against Miscavige. 

These include claims of forced separation of family members, coercive fundraising practices, harassment of journalists and church critics, and humiliation of church staff members, including physical assaults upon them by Miscavige. Miscavige and church spokespersons deny the majority of these claims, often criticizing the credibility of those who bring them

Chuck Beatty discusses David Miscavige, Scientology, and Author Services Inc

SurvivingScientology

Published on Jul 11, 2014

Former Sea Org member Chuck Beatty and Jeffrey Augustine discuss a perennial debate:
Just on one year L Ron Hubbard personally collected around $40 million dolllars from the Scientology Organiszations...
In the 1980's onwards L Rom Hubbard was personally having over $1 million plus per year from the Scientology Organisations using various methods
Hubbard apparently solf some of the copyrwites gfor around $85 million.
From 1982 to 2014 there was apparently around $250 million funnelled through L Ron Hubbard personal bank accounts...

Did L. Ron Hubbard appoint David Miscavige his successor, or, did David Miscavige seize power?

Chuck also discusses his experiences in Author Services Incorporated and the way Miscavige used ASI to assume power over the Church prior to becoming COB RTC.

Chuck describes how ASI was created as a legal way to funnel money to L. Ron Hubbard. Jeff mentions a little known fact:

David Miscavige had a life-threatening asthma attack in 1980. Emerging from this crisis in a hospital emergency room,

David Miscavige told Paul Grady that he had a revelation that "Power is Assumed" and thereafter began to assume power in the Church by whatever means it required.

This is part 2 of an on going Series exposing "Author Services".
