1980s to Present

Friday, 28 May 1982

On the tenth anniversary of the purported Watergate first break-in, a corporation called Church of Spiritual Technology (CST), doing business as the "L. Ron Hubbard Library," is created that controls all of L. Ron Hubbard's intellectual property, including all research and materials of Scientology, including the OT Levels. Three non-Scientology lawyers create the corporation and appoint themselves for life as its "Special Directors," vesting in themselves ultimate control over the corporation and all of the intellectual properties. The corporation has been created as part of a Scientology "restructuring" engineered by a former Assistant to Commissioner of IRS, Meade Emory.


Circa July 1982

OT VII Ingo Swann, under the direction of OT VII Harold Puthoff, head of the Remote Viewing Laboratory at SRI, is training remote viewers for the the Army. According to Major Ed Dames, he and five others are sent to be trained by Swann, purportedly in a "new model" of remote viewing. [NOTE: Ed Dames has been documented as lying publically about the involvement of Scientology and of OT VIIs Hal Puthoff and Ingo Swann in the genesis of remote viewing, and reasonbly is viewed as a primary source of CIA disinformation and phony "technology" related to the subject. See CST and the CIA.]


Tuesday, 16 July 1984

A press release promises construction in Los Angeles of an $8 million "L. Ron Hubbard Library" where the original works of Hubbard "will be made readily accessible" to all. The release goes on to say that "until construction of the library," all the original manuscripts and tapes have been buried "in a series of underground vaults in half a dozen separate, but undisclosed locations." [NOTE: No such library ever was built. The original works still remain buried in one or more underground vaults, of which only three have ever been identified. Also, the release omits any mention of the Meade Emory-created CST, which controls all the works, or of the fact that it is doing business at the time of the release under the exact name as the promised library (see 28 May 1982).][114][115]


Monday, 24 August 1992

Trementina2.jpg

CST trades land with an underground vault to U.S. government at a major loss, including millions of dollars invested in building the vault. The land CST takes in trade is valued at only a little over $28,000.

The Church of Spiritual Technology (CST), which had been set up by a former Assistant to the Commissioner if IRS, Meade Emory, to control all of L. Ron Hubbard's works, makes a land swap with the U.S. government, giving the federal government one of the vaults it has constructed—the Trementina Base in New Mexico, and all the developments on it—in exchange for a like-sized but much cheaper piece of public and undeveloped land nearby. There is no accounting for the contents of the vault traded to the U.S. government. [NOTE: See Trementina Base for full coverage.]


Friday, 1 October 1993

Just over a year after the land swap (see 24 August 1992), the U.S. government restores tax exemption to Scientology. [NOTE: See 1967 for date of revocation.]

The "Church of Spiritual Technology" owns
all of Hubbard's works, and has buried the originals
in one or more underground vaults—then traded
one of the vaults to the U.S. government, contents unknown.​

Wednesday, 6 September 1995

Ordered to declassify certain information about remote viewing, the CIA has its public relations office issue the following: "As mandated by Congress, CIA is reviewing available information and past research programs concerning parapsychological phenomena, mainly 'Remote Viewing' to determine whether they might have any utility for intelligence collection. CIA sponsored research on this subject in the 1970s. At that time, the program, always considered speculative and controversial, was determined to be unpromising." [116]


June 1998

Remote viewer Joe McMoneagle says in an interview about CIA's remote viewing programs: "Probably less than two percent of the information pertinent to the program has been released; certainly almost none of the operational data. A great deal of the research data is still classified as well."[117]

Afterword

As is well and thoroughly covered elsewhere, the "Church of Spiritual Technology" (CST) created altered versions of all of Hubbard's books and materials and began systematically replacing the originals with the altered versions. Even Hubbard taped lectures were edited, sometimes with entire sections removed. Earlier versions of the Hubbard works were collected up and destroyed. The claim was that the new versions were "correcting" the earlier versions.

Around the same time that the Guardian Office was destroyed, copies of what were purported to be the confidential upper materials began to be published in several media sources, first in a small Las Vegas rag called the Las Vegas Review-Journal, later in some broader publication magazines, and even excerpts in the Los Angeles Times and the Washington Post—whose Office of Naval Intelligence officer/reporter Bob Woodward told the world what it should be allowed to know about Watergate. No sources have ever been revealed for these purported confidential Scientology materials. Given the proven track of CST altering the works, and the fact that federal agencies had confidential upper-level Scientology materials in their files, there is sound foundation for the belief that the "OT Levels" in circulation are altered forgeries.

CST has made certain that it can never been proven one way or another by burying the original works in underground vaults, at least one of which they traded into the possession and control of the U.S. federal government on 24 August 1992.

So I attempted to preserve every link possible - what a chore, I tell ya'. All done and plenty of history and conspiracies for everyone to enjoy.

This is bullshit. The Clearing and OT levels in circulation are not forgeries, and the changes to Hubbard's books and tapes are few. There are copies of all of these, if one wants to search for them - such as old reel to reel tapes - and little has changed.

Some things judged to be politically incorrect have ben deleted, plus some items that were judged to be better suited as confidential.

For example, if I recall correctly, the "ruin utterly" through legal harassment was removed from the 'Manual on Dissemination', but the complete doc is still used.

The CIA did not take over Scientology to get their upper levels.

What a load of misinformation.

The timeline is misleading, and no doubt is a source of considerable confusion.

Well, keep in mind that that is merely a copy and paste, I personally don't think for a minute that the IRS took over the Co$ nor do I believe that the CIA remote viewing program had anything other than the official results - otherwise it would still be going strong.

Men Who Stare At Goats - what a hoot!

Incredibly Veda and I are in agreement here!

Note the actions of Karin Spaink and Zenon Parnousis who finally
defeated CO$ legally within the liberal legal area of Holland. They were shifting pallets of upper level material from Swedish courts as observed by Chris Owen, and told to me by Zenon.

Now just about any materials are available from a Rons Org Dutch
server. Not to mention various Russian sources.

When I walked away from Scientology in the mid 70's one of my unresolved suspicions was that a cult, especially Scientology could serve as the ultimate money laundering cash machine for organized crime conceivable. They can charge whatever they want, tax free, for services of which there is no evidence of associated costs and/or expenditure of natural resources. They had slave labor producing numbers of hours in the chair, nothing traceable as far as costs involved other that the electricity of plugging in an emeter. They've long been accused of claiming a far greater number of members purchasing services than actual. They traveled all over the world with a hypnotized staff that would function as robots no matter the task at hand. And did I mention it was all tax free? What more perfect money laundering machine for organized crime could exist? And we all know about what time period they took over. Hardly any of us, my self included, know the specifics as to how it all went down and what horrors were associated. I first thought about this all in the aftermath of the mysteries involved with the death of Hubbard's gay son... Maybe LRH took the takeover seriously after that... What else could have put him in such a tailspin? Just empty speculation, but some that I never got over.

Terril,

This is it here: http://sc-i-r-s-ology.com/rvtimeline/index.html

Originally, I ran across this material from this: http://sc-i-r-s-ology.com/veritas/index.htm

There is this written about the remote viewing timeline:

THANK YOU FOR CONTRIBUTIONS​
Thanks to everyone who has written in with additional information for the timeline. The response has been overwhelming (with creaking bandwidth, too). Although we can't respond to individual email, it's all being read, and all verifiable relevant entries are being added as fast as possible. Some have been very revealing. All are greatly appreciated. Click here to send additions.

The page below was sent to us and it began to answer many of the previously unanswered questions that had been raised by the information on this site. We're presenting it the way we received it. We've now deleted the red box on censorship that came with it. Based on the response, the censorship by Wikipedia and Ed Dames are meaningless. We are proud to have the opportunity to present this extraordinary document:

However, setting aside the conspiracy theory of an IRS/CIA take over it was extremely useful in tumbling down my house of cards when on the fence with Scientology and here's why:

I never personally take up with conspiracy theories in general - too sensational for my pallet. However, Meade Emory, an IRS top ranking official, as a trust member of the Church that owns Scientology copyrights? WOW! How many people do you know that had to petition for any and all Bridge actions by merely having familial connections of former government jobs?

Talk about PTS...I guess that pretty much makes all those HCOBs and PLs about PTS and SP stuff just so much blab, blab.

How about Xenu and the tax audits and how many reference(s) are there to the criminal tax men/agents?

That ranked right up there with Hubbard dying with Vistaril in his veins. At any rate, it appears that this timeline is a collective contribution and, if nothing else, makes for some interesting reading.

Please note that this material is, IMHO, pro-Hubbard and pro tech. The conclusion is that the tech and the Co$ were destroyed and altered by the CIA and Miscavige is a tool of that...suggesting that someone got to Ron in hiding and such...meaning everything was hunky-dory prior to this secret coup.

Very similar to Ron's Org Elron Elray and the Marcabian takeover.

The truth of the matter is that the problem is and began with Hubbard. That is the "why" and the "who".

Rons Orgs are very definitely big supporters of his tech and I
believe his admin. Despite going with his alternative version of NOTs,
Excaliber. Note that Solo Nots is not generally available. Only audited
NOTs, This may be a reason for the interest in Excal.

The "sc-i-r-s-ology." articles I consider conspiracy theory mostly.

For many years the best minds on ARS discussed these and really got nowhere.

Larry Brennan is IMO the best opinion re corporate structure.

He was the prime author.

Note that Stanford has had some research in parapsychological phenomena not related to remote viewing. You'll have to search for it as I didn't take notes.

There is a Russell Miller/'Barefaced Messiah' timeline, and also a Jon Atack "time track" which was photocopied and in a binder pre-publication of 'Piece of Blue Sky'. Offhand, since I'm not checking right now, I don't know if this "time track" made it into 'Blue Sky'.

There are also Jon Zegel's three tapes - which have been transcribed - and also his fourth tape, also at least partly transcribed. In the fourth tape, Zegel, supposedly being blackmailed by Scientology (according to Alan Walter), recants and even says "I am a Suppressive Person."

Still, without reviewing them again - having not done so in years - Jon Zegel's first three tapes are, IMO, reliable (perhaps slightly naive) info.

I haven't examined the Ingo Swann related info in this timeline, and don't know if it makes the assumption (which may not be stated) that Swann was an enemy agent infiltrating Scientology in advance of the FBI raid of July 1977, and subsequent complete taking over of the "Church" of Scientology.

There's also the assertion that, in December 1972, Hubbard was abducted by government agents, and the belief that Hubbard was then replaced by a look-a-like. From what I can see (maybe I'm overlooking it?) this has not made it into the edited version.

As background, it should be kept in mind that Free Zoners believe that Hubbard was working against impossible odds - a galactic conspiracy to stop him and Scientology - and, thus, was justified in virtually anything he did, and also believe that this galactic conspiracy infiltrated Scientology, accounting for most of the problems and justifying Hubbard's sometimes drastic (but justified) responses.

Of course, with Miscavige in control, the Markabians have taken over the "Church" of Scientology. (No joke.)

So, it's an interesting timeline, but suggest consulting alternate time lines and comparing, for those so inclined.

P.S.

OK, a little later, at second glance, I see that the original link/timeline is by someone called "Theta," and is not the Ron's Org Freezone timeline http://www.freezone.de/english/timetrack/tt-index.htm, but appears to borrow from that timeline and other time lines, and also deletes some things from that timeline.

I wonder if it's possible to somehow combine these timelines: the wacky conspiracy ones, the factual ones & the Marcabian ones all together in a document/flowchart.

It would be a hell of a job but probably worth doing.

It might show up some things that haven't been seen before?? :confused2:

How many different time lines are we talking about? If we're talking about just a few, it could be done like this:Import each time line into Excel and give each one it's own Color code. Then hit sort, export as HTML and you should be done.


Green = factual

Red = Marcabian
Black = Identical event in all timelines.

* Jan 2000: X happened
* Jan 2005: Y happened
* Jan 2007: Z happened.

Is that what you mean?

EDIT: Or we could just use number codes.

[1] = factual
[2] = Marcabian
[3] = Identical event in all timelines.

[2] Jan 2000: X happened
[1] Jan 2005: Y happened
[3] Jan 2007: Z happened.

What time period was that?
In my opinion, and it's only an opinion, it occurred in the mid 70's when the prices of services started getting jacked up, then followed by the mission takeovers, mass expulsions, Operation Snow White etc. Then the original OT4 through OT7were switcheroo'd with more exorcism crap. It all went to hell in a hand basket in a hurry. The beginnings of the end could have been much earlier but I was oblivious to it till the mid or late 70's.

It is here pure chaos, all infos are mixed in different posts from different sources...

I had the idead, that a "wiki" with this different timelines would be a good idea. Everybody could ad there the infos (s)he has. But I am not sure if that would work and how to do. :unsure:

Operation Snow White dates from 1973/74, but illegal activities directed from the 'Flagship' started in the late 1960s. The Fair Game Law of March 1965 made it plain that "Suppressive Persons" have no rights, including no rights to their body (condones first degree murder) and no rights to their "property, places, and abodes," but the idea that anti-Dianetics/Scientology persons should have "no rights of any kind" dates from 1951.

There was a switcheroo that predated Hubbard's 1980 substitution of BT levels for the previous, mostly recycled 1950s, processes which were, themselves, mostly recycled Rosicrucianism, and that was the switcheroo of 1963/65, that switched from primarily asking the person the contents of his mind and space to primarily telling the person the contents of his mind and space ("Implantology").

Prices, if I recall correctly, were jacked up around 1976, but "Hard Sell" had been around since the 1960s.

Hubbard authorized the Mission takeovers in 1982, but selectively looting individual missions occurred before that.

Of course, for some people, when Hubbard wrote a book called 'What to Audit' in 1952 (later called 'History of Man'), and started it with the words, "This is a cold blooded account of tour last sixty trillion years," they walked out the door, realizing that Hubbard was running a carnival side show& confidence game.

So, anyway, you see the period of the mid 1970s to the early 1980s as a time when a takeover occurred. Okay. Now put with me a little bit more and answer the question, "Who took over?"

P.S. I share your view that Scientology, as a totalist mind-control cult, could be regarded as a usable kind of people machine. IMO, Hubbard trusted no one, and set up his people-machine/psycho-political operation http://warrior.xenu.ca/Brainwashing-front.jpg to serve the interests of whoever ran it, and set it up so it would be apparent to whomever that was, that it was in his/their interest to maintain the pattern he put in place in the 1960s and early 1970s, which would mean, amongst other things, maintaining the L. Ron Hubbard personality cult aspect.

Mostly though, I think Hubbard was fulfilling his 1938, "smash" his "name into history" prime directive, and once the "smashing" is done, a large hole usually remains, and persists, simply through the laws of inertia, for some time.

As long as we're talking about timelines here's one I really want to see completed. I almost would like to see it kept separate to begin with to more or less pin the tail on the donkey.

I specifically remember reading a website one time that chronicled his address with Polly and maybe Sara as well - they moved something like twice per month or more...I think in an effort to dodge bill collectors. At any rate that would make an interesting timeline.

It's from another thread here: L Ron's Time Line: Documenting His Life and Claims - Help Us Out Here

Here's the last post:

Now here's what I'm talking about from here:

THE UNHAPPY LIFE OF LAFAYETTE RONALD HUBBARD 1911-1986

THE MYTH

He studied man in 52 different cultures, from an early age had a hunger for knowledge and a compassion for man that knew no rival. He found the tech of life and the mind, mapped the way out of the labyrinth, threaded a path through the deadly OTIII. He was possibly the only officer in the US Navy that saw action in every theater of WWII. He was exterior with perception and demonstrating OT powers as early as 1952, and as a small boy while studying mysticism was able to move a matchstick floating on water with the power of his mind. He is the authority on drug and criminal rehab, mental illness, administration,organization, finance, ethics, justice, nutrition, photography, music, film making, PR, intelligence, literature, seamanship, philosophy, child raising and education.
The only area that was not extensively researched was the almighty.
However in the admin dictionary eight dynamic is defined as ” superior life beings” and goes further “there are always going to be superior life beings around”.
KSW 1 makes it very clear that Ron IS the source, the busts and photos, clapping and deification by the group sort of indicates there is a lot more to this fellow than your garden variety human.


THE MAN

1885: birth of Hubbard’s mother, Ledora May Waterbury, in Burnett (now Tilden), Nebraska. Her father was a rancher and veterinarian with humble means and a large family.

1886, 31 August: birth of Hubbard’s father, Henry August Wilson, at Fayette, Iowa. His mother dies when he is born and he is adopted by Mr and Mrs James Hubbard of Frederiksburg, Iowa, and becomes Harry Ross Hubbard. So LRH was actually a Wilson.

1909, 25 April: Ledora May Waterbury married Harry Ross Hubbard in Omaha. She was from Montana, where LRH spent much time in his younger days.

1911, 13 March: LaFayette Ronald Hubbard born to Harry Ross Hubbard and Ledora May Hubbard, at Tilden, Nebraska.

1915: Hubbard claimed that when he was four years old, he became the protegé of Old Tom, a Blackfeet Indian shaman. In 1985 Blackfeet historian Hugh Dempsey comments that the act of blood brotherhood was “never done among the Blackfeet”, and rejects Hubbard’s story. See 1985.

1917: Harry Hubbard re-enlists in the US Navy.

1918: Harry Hubbard becomes assistant paymaster, ensign rank.

1921: Harry Hubbard pursued for $125 by fourteen creditors.

1922: Harry Hubbard posted to USS Oklahoma as assistant supply officer. The family move to San Diego, the ship’s home port. Later that year he is sent to the US Accounts School in Washington DC. They travel via the USS Grant through the Panama Canal.

1924, 1 April: L. Ron Hubbard age 13 receives the rank of Eagle Scout in Washington, D.C. Hubbard later claims that he was the nation’s youngest Eagle Scout. He was certainly one of the youngest but no records exist that could confirm this as the organization listed only by name, not by age. The family moves to live in Seattle, WA, his father’s new home port.

1927, 5 April: Harry Hubbard posted to the US naval base in Guam. He leaves on 5 April, his family several weeks later. They go via Honolulu,Yokohama, Shanghai, Hong Kong and Manila. Total time from US to Guam: 36 days.

1927, 16 July: Harry’s son L. R. Hubbard aged 16 returns to Bremerton on the USS Nitro.

1927, 6 September: L. Ron Hubbard enrolls as a junior in Helena High School while living with his maternal grandparents.

1927: He begins his interest in black magic by reading Aleister Crowley’s The Book of the Law. Begins to use drugs to improve his magickal powers.

1928, 14 May: Ron drops out of school and goes to Seattle to live with his aunt. He joins his parents in Guam on 25 July. In October he and his mother go to China for two months. They see Peking, Tsingtao, Shanghai and Hong Kong. Young Hubbard is oppressed by the smell and squalor of the places he visits. An entry in his diary reads: “They smell of all the baths they didn’t take. The trouble with China is, there are too many chinks here.” Back in Guam 18 December.

1929: He returns to the United States to pursue a career in mathematics and engineering (according to his own article in Dianetics: ‘About the Author’.)

1929: He fails his entrance exam to Annapolis. His father, now the Disbursing Officer at the US Naval Hospital in Washington, DC puts his son into the Swaely Preparatory school in Manasses, VA, for more intensive study. Here it is found that Ron’s eyesight is defective forever ruling out the naval academy.

1930, 1 May: LaFayette Ronald Hubbard joins a Marine Corps Reserve training unit. He is placed on inactive status the same day, and spends only five weeks of his 18-month stint actually doing anything.

1930: Ron is enrolled at the Woodward School for Boys, in Washington, DC.

1930, September: LaFayette Ronald Hubbard enrolls in the civil engineering program at George Washington University. He spends two years in the program with abysmal results: six D’s (General Chemistry, Differential Calculus, Integral Calculus, Plane Analytic Geometry, Electricity and Magnetism) and four F’s (First Year German, Differential Calculus, Molecular and Atomic Physics). But he gets a B in short-story writing and contributes to a student rag.

1931, 13 July: L. Ronald Hubbard earns Commercial Glider Pilot Licence #385 after 116 flights.

1932, 23 June:
Hubbard organizes an expedition to the Caribbean and charters the Doris Hamlin, an old four-masted schooner, based in Baltimore. Fifty fellow-students take part and apparently contribute financially. The Caribbean Motion Picture Expedition is, predictably, a disaster on all fronts, except perhaps for Hubbard.

1932, September: he drops out of college.

1932, 23 October: Ron reported on board the US Navy transport, USS Kittery, at Norfolk, Virginia, for transportation to Puerto Rico. Among his fellow passengers were a number of nurses and the wife of the director of the American Red Cross. While he was still at sea, readers of the November issue of the Sportsman Pilot were entertained by a second L. Ron Hubbard article, this time about his escapades as a glider pilot. He described 'the most terrible nightmare I have ever gone through' - how his glider had folded a wing at four hundred feet, how he had battled to prevent it going into a spin and how, as he crashed, 'so many wires wrapped themselves about my neck that I was unable to wear a collar for weeks.' A few weeks later, he modestly added, he set up an unofficial world record by flying a glider at a speed of eighty miles an hour at a level altitude for a duration of twelve minutes.

1933, 13 April: He marries Margaret Louse (“Polly”) Grubb in Elkton, Maryland. By his own admission, this misconceived union results in seven pregnancies, with two births and five terminations. The family lived in Los Angeles, California and, during the late 1930s and ’40s, in Bremerton, Washington. They lived together for 12 years.

1934: Hubbard begins to sell stories such as “Sea Fangs,” “The Carnival of Death,” “Man-Killers of the Air,” and “The Squad that Never Came Back” to pulp magazines. He also wrote Western fiction.

1934, 7 May: Eldest son, L. Ron Junior, known as “Nibs” (later Ron DeWolf), born, weighing 2 pounds. Hubbard Senior made him an incubator out of a shoe-box. Nibs married c. 1956 and had six children: Deborah, Leif, Eric, Esther, Harry and Alex (who had Down’s Syndrome). He waited until the five oldest were independent (and he became ill) before talking about his father and Scientology. LRH pere goes to New York to learn more about the pulp fiction market.

1935: Hubbard, getting into his swing, publishes ten pulp novels, three novelettes and three non-fiction stories, including “The Baron of Coyote River” and “The Blow Torch Murder”. He also writes the screen play for the Saturday matinee series The Secret of Treasure Island.

1936, 15 January: Hubbard’s eldest daughter, Katherine May, is born. She may have been in the Sea Org in the 1960s.

1937: Hubbard writes his first hard cover novel Buckskin Brigades and with the advance he buys an old 30ft ketch, Maggie or Magician.

1938: He writes Excalibur, about his discovery that survival is the secret of the universe. It does not find a publisher. He turns to science fiction.

1938: Hubbard tries and fails to join the Air Corps.

1939: Hubbard tries and fails to join the US Army.

1939: He becomes a regular contributor to Astounding Science Fiction but publishes only seven novels and two short stories. He expends much energy on an attempt to be elected to the National Aeronautics Association on the strength of his gliding experience.

1939: He moves to New York, without his family.

1939, 12 December: using phony criteria he is elected to the NY Explorers’ Club.
[ABOARD THE MAGICIAN, 1940]

1940: He completes two initial degrees in the Rosicrucians (AMORC) but his membership lapses on 5 July. He is still writing.

1940, March or June: He sails to Alaska with wife Polly aboard his old ketch. He called it the “Alaskan Radio Experimental Expedition.” He may, or may not, have been testing out a new navigational system. He has engine trouble.

1940, November: He is broke and stranded in Alaska but gets a bank loan which is never repaid.

1940, December: Hubbard receives a Master’s License for Steam and Motor Vessels

1941, Spring: Living in New York and campaigning to get a commission in the US Naval Reserve, assigned to intelligence duties.

1941, May: He receives a Master’s License for Sail Vessels (any Ocean).

1941, 25 June: He receives his commission in the Naval Reserves, as a Lieutenant junior grade. He talks himself into an intelligence post in Melbourne, Australia. It does not last long.

1942, 4 February: The US Naval Attaché in Melbourne reports: “By assuming unauthorized authority and attempting to perform duties for which he has no qualifications, he became the source of much trouble. [...] This officer is not satisfactory for independent duty assignment. He is garrulous and tries to give impressions of his importance. He also seems to think he has unusual ability in most lines. These characteristics indicate that he will require close supervision for satisfactory performance of any intelligence duty.” Hubbard is sent back to the USA on the first available ship.

1942, 25 September: the Commandant of Boston Navy Yard notifies Washington that L. Ron Hubbard is ill-suited to run a ship: “Lt. L.R. Hubbard is in command of YP 422 completing conversion and fitting out at Boston, in the opinion of the Commandant he is not temperamentally fitted for independent command. It is therefore urgently requested that he be detached and that order for relief be expedited in view of the expected early departure of the vessel. Believe Hubbard capable of useful service if ordered to other duty under immediate supervision of a more senior officer.”

1942, 1 October:
Hubbard is summarily relieved of his command of the USS YP-422.

1943, 18 May: Hubbard is put in command of a corvette, USS PC-815. On the very first day of its maiden voyage, he identifies one or two enemy submarines off the coast of Oregon from sonar blips. He reports to CINCPAC that he has expended all depth charges on the suspicious sonar contact and also fired many rounds of ammunition. The blip was later said to be a known magnetic abnormality. The next day, chase was joined by four other ships. No sign of any submarine was ever found.

1943, 28 June:
The crew of the USS-PC 815 fires four 50-caliber artillery rounds at a floating object. Unfortunately, this object is right in front of the inhabited island of South Coronados, which belongs to Mexico, and at least two shells strike land…

1943, 7 July: “Consider this officer lacking in the essential qualities of judgment, leadership and cooperation. He acts without forethought as to probable results. He is believed to have been sincere in his efforts to make his ship efficient and ready. Not considered qualified for command or promotion at this time. Recommend duty on a large vessel where he can be properly supervised.” There is a consensus of opinion about Hubbard in the Navy.

1943, 15 July: Lt LaFayette Ron Hubbard is relieved of his command for conducting an unauthorized gunnery practice and violating the territorial waters of the nation of Mexico.

1943, October:
He attends Naval Small Craft Training Center, San Pedro, CA, for a six week course.

1943, December:
He is posted aboard the USS Algol which later was involved in the invasion of the Philippines and the landing at Okinawa, but without Hubbard who meantime has transferred to the Military Government School in Princeton where he spends three months.

1944, 27 September: Navigation Officer Lt. Hubbard is inspecting a load of cargo being brought aboard the SS Algol when he notices a molotov cocktail made out of a Coke bottle. Hubbard is detached from the ship a few hours later.

1945, April: Hubbard diagnosed with an ulcer.

1945, August: Hubbard becomes a member of the Agape Lodge of the Ordo Templi Orientis (OTO, Crowley’s secret society) in Pasadena. This appears to be where he meets Jack Parsons.

1945, 5 September: Hubbard is admitted to Oak Knoll Naval Hospital, Oakland, California, for “epigastric distress.” He is treated for a duodenal ulcer and also complains of arthritis, hemorrhoids and headaches. A medical report states: “… it is the opinion of the Board that this officer is not physically fit to perform all duties of his rank, and that he should be ordered to appear before a retiring board.”

1945, 5 December: Hubbard leaves hospital and is discharged from the service. He never saw battle or smelled gunpowder fired in anger. The four medals he received were those given to everyone who served in the areas that he was in. He was never wounded and never singled out for bravery or heroism. He was never employed as a secret agent. All of his time in the navy is accounted for.

1946: He abandons Polly and his two children and in the spring moves to live with Jack Parsons, scientists and occultist, in the latter’s house in Los Angeles.

1946, 10 August: He goes through a bigamous marriage with Sara Elizabeth Northrup in Chestertown, Maryland. She is Jack’s former girlfriend. He also gets $10,000 from Parsons who never gets it back. Parsons (who designed rocket fuel) dies in a bizarre accident (which suggests a bomb) in 1952.

1947, 14 April: Polly files for divorce.

1947, 15 October: Hubbard writes to the Veterans Administration, LA, seeking psychiatric help. It is refused. This is perhaps a mistake

1947, 1 December: Aleister Crowley dies. LRH assumes his mantle and becomes the Beast Incarnate and potentially the most powerful person in the universe, in his terms.

1947, 24 December:
L. Ron Hubbard divorces his first wife, 16 months after marrying his second.

1948, 17 August: L. Ron Hubbard is arrested for bouncing checks in East Pasadena, California. In court a fortnight later, he pleads guilty and pays the $25 fine. He is more or less broke and probably finding it difficult to write.

1949, Spring: Addressing a sci-fi group in Newark, New Jersey, he says: “Writing for a penny a word is ridiculous. If a man really wanted to make a million dollars, the best way to do it would be to start his own religion.”

1950, 8 March: Alexis Valerie Hubbard is born.

1950, April: A trailer for Dianetics in “Astounding Science Fiction, claims “a technique that gives any man a perfect, indelible, total memory, and perfect, errorless ability to compute his problems. A basic answer, and a technique for curing-not alleviating ulcers, arthritis, asthma, and many non-germ diseases. A totally new conception of the truly incredible ability and power of the human mind.”

1950, May: The article on Dianetics appears. This is the first scientific advance ever launched from a science fiction magazine. The story itself is merely a device to whet the public’s appetite for his book which is published on 9 May as “Dianetics, the Modern Science of Mental Health.” Reviews are uniformly bad. Sales increase exponentially. But Dr. Winter, a medical doctor who initially supported Hubbard quits after concluding that Hubbard conducted no research and that this system was not without danger. He has seen two preclears develop acute psychoses during auditing.

1951: The New Jersey Board of Medical Examiners institute proceedings against Hubbard for teaching medicine without a license. Hubbard flees to LA to avoid prosecution.

1951, 23 February: grand domestic drama: “I was in my apartment on February 23rd, about two or three o’clock in the morning when the apartment was entered, I was knocked out, had a needle thrust into my heart to give it a jet of air to produce ‘coronary thrombosis’ and was given an electric shock with a 110 volt current. This is all very blurred to me. I had no witnesses. But only one person had another key to that apartment and that was Sara.” He always had a vivid and vicious imagination.

1951, 13 April: He complains to the US Military Attache in Havana that he is being attacked by Communists who are trying to steal his work.

1951, 23 April: Sara files for divorce citing his bigamy, his kidnapping their baby daughter Alexis, and his cruelty. Her petition is posted elsewhere. She gets her baby back but only “by agreeing to let him divorce her and by not saying anything bad about him.” He did not cease to say very bad things about her.

1951: He meets Mary Sue Whipp (19) in Wichita, Kansas, where he has opened a Dianetics center funded by Don Purcell

1952, 12 February: Hubbard is voted off the board of Dianetics by Purcell and other members for gross mis-management, ie, embezzlement.

1952, March: Hubbard marries Mary Sue Whipp, who is less than half his age and two months pregnant. She is to become the mother of Diana (still in the Sea Org), Quentin (1953-1976), Suzette (left the Sea Org in 1986), and Arthur (an extremely disturbing painter).

1952, March: Hubbard acquires the rights to the E-meter from Volney Mathison, apparently by fraud and coercion.

1952, April: Hubbard opens a Scientology office in Phoenix, Arizona (the first?). He discovers the state of OT (operating thetan). Later he would say “Neither Lord Buddha nor Jesus Christ were OT’s according to evidence. They were just a shade above clear.”

1952, July: Hubbard publishes The History of Man, “one of the most unintentionally funny books ever written”. Scholars dismiss it as balderdash written by a man ignorant of history, geology, anthropology, and a host of other disciplines.

1952, 24 September: Hubbard and his wife move to England where Diana Meredith DeWolf Hubbard is born in London. She is a talented musician and a very good-looking redhead.

1952, December: Hubbard returns to the US to give a series of lectures in Philadelphia. He is arrested for wrongfully withdrawing $9,286.00 from the now bankrupt Wichita Dianetics Foundation. He agrees to pay the money back and the matter is dropped.

1953, 10 April: L. Ron Hubbard writes a letter to Helen O’Brien, proposing that they apply for a church charter in Pennsylvania or New Jersey and convert their existing storefronts into “Spiritual Guidance Centers” (he asks her to think of a better name). In closing, Hubbard asks for O’Brien’s input on the idea, saying “I await your reaction on the religion angle.”

1953: The Creation of Human Ability was published. “Society, thirsting for more control of more people substitutes religion for the spirit, the body for the soul, an identity for the individual and science and data for truth. In this direction lies insanity, increasing slavery, less knowingness, greater scarcity and less society. “Scientology has opened the gates to a better World. It is not a psycho-therapy nor a religion. It is a body of knowledge which, when properly used, gives freedom and truth to the individual.” From the context of the first sentence, Hubbard associates “religion” as a mistaken substitution for the spirit. This is consistent with other statements by Hubbard which disparage religion in general. This passage was removed in 1971 and later editions.

1953: He awards himself a Ph.D. from the “University of Sequoia,” a diploma mill which he had bought from the original owner.

1953, 6 January: birth of Geoffrey Quentin McCaully Hubbard (d.12 November 1976).

1953, November: Hubbard gets Dianetics back under his control when former business partner Don Purcell, tired of the endless litigation, gives up the fight.

1954, 13 February: Mary Suzette Rochelle Hubbard born.

1954: The Church of Scientology, California, incorporated.

1956: Scientology begins to prosper and from this point on makes money regardless of controversy.

1957: Hubbard’s personal income reckoned to be $250,000.

1957: The famous nuclear physicist, Dr L. Ron Hubbard, publishes “All About Radiation”. He also promotes Dianazene, a vitamin compound which cures radiation sickness. The FDA confiscates 21,000 tablets. The Brain-Washing Manual makes its appearance.

1958, 8 June: Arthur Conway Hubbard born. By this time Hubbard has authored more than sixty books on Scientology.

1959: Hubbard purchases and moves into Saint Hill Manor in East Grinstead, Sussex, England.

1959, 23 November: Nibs, whom he has left to hold the baby, leaves the organization and goes into hiding, complaining that his father didn’t pay him a living wage. He had several other reasons.

1959, December: His mother dies; he arrives too late to speak to her and leaves again before the funeral.

1960: Hubbard, though living in England, is under surveillance by the FBI.

1960, October-November:
He lectures in South Africa and in December lectures in Washington, DC.

1961: More lectures in South Africa. People, mainly Americans, flock to St. Hill where additional housing was made for them.

1962: Hubbard writes to the White House offering to train astronauts.

1963, 4 January: No astronauts came but the FAD raided the organization, seizing mountains of paperwork and hundreds of E-meters. They allege massive medical fraud.

1963, May: Hubbard reveals that he had twice visited heaven. His first visit to heaven, a town high in the mountains on an alien planet, went well enough but when he came back three-million years later he found the place in a sad state of disrepair. These bulletins were later removed from Scientology’s list of his writings.

1963: Polly, his much-abused first wife, dies.

1964, March: Hubbard gives his last interview with the press. In an interview with the “Saturday Evening Post,” he claims that his wages from Scientology are just $70.00 a week.

1965, October: an Australian report slams Scientology as evil: “Scientology is evil: its techniques evil, its practice a serious threat to the community, medically, morally and socially, and its adherents sadly deluded and often mentally ill.” Hubbard’s sanity is “gravely doubted.”

1966, February:
Lord Balniel, MP, asks the British government to investigate Scientology. Hubbard responds by investigating Lord Balniel. His PI sold his story to the newspapers, creating even more ill feeling for Scientology.

1966: Hubbard creates the Guardian’s Office (GO) at Saint Hill; its purpose to harass his critics.

1966, April: Hubbard goes to Rhodesia to see what the prospects are for Scientology in that area. He also wants to look for treasure he had buried in a previous life as Cecil Rhodes. The CIA are told by Washington that Hubbard is a “crack-pot,” of “doubtful mental background.”

1966, 18 July: Hubbard is booted out of Rhodesia because of his bad reputation and his meddling in local politics.

1967: Scientology loses its tax-exempt status in the US.

1967: Hubbard creates creates his own navy and the Sea Org. At sea he is beyond the reach of the law and the Press. He refits the Enchanter, a 40 ton sea-going schooner bought in 1966, and the 414 ton Avon River, an old North Sea trawler. Next he bought the Royal Scotsman, a 3,200 ton former cattle ferry which was registered in Sierra Leon and in it he cruised the Mediterranean with a few real sailors. The hired sailors talk when they return to port and on 21 February The People publishes an article: “Ahoy There: It’s the Craziest Cruise on Earth”.
Granada Television 1967 track him down and make a documentary on Scientology
http://www.youtube.com/wv=L_w-YWwC1lI&feature=related
Meanwhile Hubbard continues to develop Scientology doctrine, including the OT series. He forms the Rehabilitation Project Force (RPF) to malefactors aboard the ship. Information about his extreme cruelty, particularly to small children, eventually surface.

1968, June/July: CIA cable: “USIS Officer states that Hubbard runs floating “university” of questionable moral character. Not accredited any US universities and poor representative for USs abroad… Floating college probably part of charlatan cult”.

1968, April: Serious problems with the Spanish government.

1968, July: Hubbard is declared an undesirable alien by the British government. Kenneth Robinson, health minister, says: “The Government is satisfied … that Scientology is socially harmful. It alienates members of families from each other and attributes squalid and disgraceful motives to all who oppose it.”

1968, August:
Scientologist James Stewart, 35, is found dead outside a window at the advanced org in Edinburgh, Scotland. He had been found guilty of invalidating Scientology by having epileptic fits and his punishment included staying awake for 80 hours (a punishment which Hubbard also applied to Sara Northrup.) James appears to be the first known victim of a cult that claimed many others.

1968: Meanwhile, back in Greece, Hubbard tried to ingratiate himself with the Greek authorities. He renamed his ships: the Royal Scotman became the Apollo, the Avon River the Athena and the Enchanter became the Diana. The Greeks were not impressed.

1969, 19 March: Hubbard is given 24 hours to leave Greek waters. He goes.

1969, 2 November: Hubbard declares that he is the victim of a vast and nefarious international conspiracy. He sails aimlessly off the coasts of Spain and North Africa, now attended by prepubescent girls in fetching attire. His behavior is eccentric.

1971, 25, June: Scientologist Susan Meister killed with a bullet to the head aboard the Apollo while in the port of Casablanca, Morocco. It is described as suicide.

1971: Paulette Cooper, who has no real idea what she is tackling, writes The Scandal of Scientology, and is persecuted for years by GO who try to ruin her sanity or put her in jail. Her “boyfriend” who is a GO plant, obtains her fingerprints on a blank piece of paper and uses it to write Henry Kissinger a death threat. Documents proving Scientology’s complicity come to light when the FBI raids Scientology offices in 1977.

1972: Hubbard in poor health. He takes up residence in a small villa near Tangier, Morocco. But he is about to be indicted in France for fraud. Fearing extradition he flees to Lisbon. Later in the year he travels to NYC where he lives in seclusion.

1973: Mary Sue, now head of GO, reports that the threat of extradition has diminished sufficiently to allow Hubbard to return to his ships. The “Apollo” begins further aimless cruises off the coast of Spain.

1973, November: Hubbard breaks an arm and two ribs in a motorcycle accident in Morocco. He declines any medical attention, preferring to suffer over many months.

1973: 18 April: L. Ron Hubbard orders the Church of Scientology to launch Operation Snow White.

1974: 28 May:
L. Ron Hubbard writes to the Navy asking for the 17 medals he often claimed to have won in World War II. Three weeks later, the Navy sends the four medals he actually won, more or less for his physical presence in various places, and none of the 13 imaginary ones.

1975: Having worn out his welcome in the Mediterranean Hubbard sets sail for the US. He intends to go to Charleston, SC but he is tipped off that IRS and FBI agents are lurking at the harbor so instead he goes to the Caribbean. Sometime during the summer he suffers a heart attack and is hospitalized in Curacao. Soon though his ship is ejected by the Dutch prime minister.

1975, July: Michael Shannon begins to dig into the life of L. Ron Hubbard obtaining a very different picture from the one published by Scientology.

1975, August: The Sea Org land in Daytona Beach, FL in great secrecy. The “Apollo” goes back to the Caribbean. Hubbard, needing a land base, likes the quiet city of Clearwater. As Southern Land Sales he buys the Fort Harrison Hotel for $2.3 million and the old Bank of Clearwater building for another $550,000. The deals are concluded in great secrecy. Soon it is announced that “The United Churches of Florida” has leased both properties. This is not, after all, good news for Clearwater.

1975, August/September: Ron’s father, Harry Ross Hubbard, dies aged 88. The SO descend and remove all his effects.

1975, 16 October: An outgoing cable from the CIA: “Review of available info regarding overseas activities Church of Scientology reveals only that its founder L. Ron Hubbard is eccentric millionaire who has been expelled from residence in several countries because of his odd activities and behavior. He is owner of several ships whose appearance in ports in various parts of world have stimulated queries … from other governments asking info re vessels mission and crew. Responses indicate we know very little …”

1975, 5 December: Hubbard moves into a small condo complex in Dunedin, north of Clearwater. Elaborate security is maintained. In Clearwater the mayor, Gabriel Cazares, publicly wonders why the “United Churches of Florida” need uniformed security guards who are armed with mace and clubs. He and other local politicians and public figures are put on Scientology’s list of enemies.

1976: The infiltration of government agencies known as Operation Snow White is in full swing. The spies steal thousands of government documents and infiltrate the FBI, IRS, Coast Guard and the Drug Enforcement Agency.

1976, January: Betty Orsini, a reporter for the St. Petersburg Times, is reported by Scientology agents to be close to finding out the truth about who the latest group of immigrants to Clearwater really are. Scientologist June Byrne or Phillips, working undercover at the Clearwater Sun reports that newsman Mark Sableman is also beginning to put two and two together. Their coverage of Scientology would one day net the Times a Pulitzer Prize, besides the inevitable lawsuits.

28 January:
Scientology forestalls a planned coup by the Times by spilling the beans at a press conference.

29 January: Scientology launches a suit against Mayor Cazares for libel, slander and civil rights violations. He fights Scientology heroically for years to come and is undaunted in his efforts to clear his name and show the world the dark side of Scientology. He died aged 86 in 2006.

1976: Hubbard is recognised by a tailor who happens to be a science fiction enthusiast. Hubbard goes to Washington, D.C.

1976, March: Scientologists fake a hit-and-run car accident in an effort to smear Gabe Cazares while he is attending a national conference of mayors in Washington, D.C. This attempt to ruin Cazares’s career comes to light when “Snow White” is blown.

1976, 11 June: Two Scientologists are questioned concerning their presence in the U.S. Courthouse Library at the foot of Capitol Hill. Their passes are bogus. One flees and the other is arrested. Snow White begins to unravel.

1976, October: Hubbard settles with his family at La Quinta, CA.

1976, 28 October: Quentin Hubbard, having left home after once again being reduced to the ranks, is found with CO poisoning in a car at Las Vegas. On 12 November he dies in hospital. Due to the difficulty of identifying the body the Hubbards don’t learn of this until 17 November. Mary Sue screams for ten minutes. Ron curses his dead son. Trusted agents are sent to clean up the mess (they steal documents from the hospital) in order to distance Hubbard from this sad event. As usual, he was preoccupied with himself.

1977: Hubbard invents the Purification Run-Down, which uses excessive exposure to high temperatures in a sauna and dangerously-high doses of vitamins to rid the body of toxins and chemical residues. He gets lawsuits from people injured by the toxic doses of vitamins and injured from the too lengthy time in the sauna.

1977, 8 July: FBI agents raid the offices of the Church of Scientology in Los Angeles and Washington, D.C. In addition to burglar tools and surveillance equipment, agents seize approximately 90,000 pages of documents and files, the contents of which blow the lid off Operation Snow White.

1978, 17 March: L. Ron Hubbard is convicted in absentia of fraud by a French court. He is sentenced to four years in prison and a $7,000 fine. By now it is the least of his problems.

1978, 15 August: A federal grand jury indicts nine Scientologists, including Mary Sue, for criminal acts in furtherance of Operation Snow White. The charges include burglarizing government offices and stealing official documents, perjury, conspiracy, and obstructing justice. She gets five years.

1979, March: L. Ron Hubbard, more paranoid than ever, secretly moves to Hemet, California.

1980, February: L. Ron Hubbard secretly moves to exile in Creston, California, where he lives until he dies. His personal income at this time is $1 million a week, delivered in cash.

1983, 7 January: Mary Sue sentenced to four years in a Federal Correctional institute.

1983, June: Ron DeWolf gives an interview to Penthouse: “What a lot of people don’t realize is that Scientology is black magic that is just spread out over a long time period. To perform black magic generally takes a few hours or, at most, a few weeks. But in Scientology it’s stretched out over a lifetime, and so you don’t see it. Black magic is the inner core of Scientology — and it is probably the only part of Scientology that really works.”

1984, 20 June: Judge Paul G. Breckenridge Jr. issues his ruling in Scientology v. Armstrong. He says that Hubbard appears to be “charismatic and highly capable of motivating, organizing, controlling, manipulating and inspiring his adherents.” However, the judge ruled against the Church, and in so doing said that “The organization clearly is schizophrenic and paranoid, and the bizarre combination seems to be a reflection of its founder LRH. The evidence portrays a man who has been virtually a pathological liar when it comes to his history, background, and achievements. The writings and documents in evidence additionally reflect his egoism, greed, avarice, lust for power, and vindictiveness and aggressiveness against persons perceived by him to be disloyal or hostile.

1985: Scientologists claim that members of Blackfeet Nation, Montana, commemorated the seventieth anniversary of L.R.H. becoming a blood brother of the Blackfeet Nation. This is pure hogwash. See 1915.

1986, perhaps on 16 January: L. Ron Hubbard has a terminal stroke. “A devastating brain lesion had impaired his ability to speak.”

1986, 23 January: L. Ron Hubbard allegedly drafts and signs his Last Will and Testament.

1986, 24 January: L. Ron Hubbard dies in a motorhome near Creston, California, a few miles north of San Luis Obispo. He is cremated and his ashes dumped into the Pacific Ocean. The news is revealed three days later. He may have died some days earlier: those who visit notice that the air conditioner is running, though the weather is cool. David Miscavige immediately imposes himself as the new leader of Scientology. Mary Sue, recovering from an operation for lung cancer, is easy to bully and signs away her rights as Hubbard’s wife.

1986, 25 January: The coroner’s report describes L. Ron Hubbard as having long, unkempt fingernails and toenails, and ten recent needle marks on the right buttock beneath a band-aid. The “church” did not permit an autopsy but blood analysis showed he was pumped full of Vistaril, a psychiatric drug used in cases of severe dementia and anxiety. So die all charlatans.

2002, 25 November: Mary Sue, isolated within the cult, almost forgotten, dies of metastatic breast cancer.

The significance of this timeline, which encompasses the early decades of the Scientology cult as well as the life of its founder, is that NOTHING HAS CHANGED. Scientology is made in the image of its founder. KSW is still the law. Scientology is as immoral, cruel, dogmatic, unnatural and arrogant as when the Sea Org crawled ashore.

Operation Snow White dates from 1973/74, but illegal activities directed from the 'Flagship' started in the late 1960s. The Fair Game Law of March 1965 made it plain that "Suppressive Persons" have no rights, including no rights to their body (condones first degree murder) and no rights to their "property, places, and abodes," but the idea that anti-Dianetics/Scientology persons should have "no rights of any kind" dates from 1951.

There was a switcheroo that predated Hubbard's 1980 substitution of BT levels for the previous, mostly recycled 1950s, processes which were, themselves, mostly recycled Rosicrucianism, and that was the switcheroo of 1963/65, that switched from primarily asking the person the contents of his mind and space to primarily telling the person the contents of his mind and space ("Implantology").

Prices, if I recall correctly, were jacked up around 1976, but "Hard Sell" had been around since the 1960s.

Hubbard authorized the Mission takeovers in 1982, but selectively looting individual missions occurred before that.

Of course, for some people, when Hubbard wrote a book called 'What to Audit' in 1952 (later called 'History of Man'), and started it with the words, "This is a cold blooded account of tour last sixty trillion years," they walked out the door, realizing that Hubbard was running a carnival side show& confidence game.

So, anyway, you see the period of the mid 1970s to the early 1980s as a time when a takeover occurred. Okay. Now put with me a little bit more and answer the question, "Who took over?"

P.S. I share your view that Scientology, as a totalist mind-control cult, could be regarded as a usable kind of people machine. IMO, Hubbard trusted no one, and set up his people-machine/psycho-political operation http://warrior.xenu.ca/Brainwashing-front.jpg to serve the interests of whoever ran it, and set it up so it would be apparent to whomever that was, that it was in his/their interest to maintain the pattern he put in place in the 1960s and early 1970s, which would mean, amongst other things, maintaining the L. Ron Hubbard personality cult aspect.

Mostly though, I think Hubbard was fulfilling his 1938, "smash" his "name into history" prime directive, and once the "smashing" is done, a large hole usually remains, and persists, simply through the laws of inertia, for some time.
There is a lot more to what went wrong with the COS than I can prove or claim to know. I didn't know Gerald Wolfe that well as I hung out with a slightly younger crowd and when we'd run into him, mostly at disco's out in St. Louis Park, Mn. , he didn't really want to be seen with us lowly Class IV Org Scientologists. That's why when he got busted in Snow White I realized why he'd kept at a distances from us. Bob and Karen Kuyper were heads of the local GO and were nice enough as people that I was blindsided when the GO turned into a POS as a precurser to the COS turning into a POS. I once hung up a new cork board in HCO and OT3 Bob Kuyper walked in and erupted, "no not that wall" and I swear all but 3 of the 30 12" cork squares fell of the wall instantly. He roared with delight. But all this aside, if you think I know the specifics of who took over the COS I can only disappoint you. I have some heavily educated speculation, but do I know conclusively? No. I could tell you what I think but that would open me up to being labeled a "conspiracy theorist." And we all know, since George Bush told us, that there are no conspiracies, only theorists thereof.

"1972 - 1982

From 1972 to 1982, LRH and MSH created a Liberian Corporation called the Religious Research Foundation with numbered bank accounts in Liechtenstein. The RRF and these bank accounts were dominated and controlled by LRH. In excess of 100 million dollars belonging to the Church of Scientology was illegally transferred into the RRF accounts, for the personal control and use of LRH. This constituted unlawful inurement."



The RRF already existed at the beginning of 1971 when I was there. All our services taken on the Apollo were invoiced under the RRF name.
