    A memoir of a life that became involved in a secret society masquerading as a religion in Hollywood that practices magic and domination. This body of work could have been about you if you were contacted or chosen like I was. Buckle up and get ready to be changed in your thinking forever.

    About the Author

    Born on the south side of Chicago, the first son of a WWII U.S. Army veteran. Jesse began his education in the Chicago Catholic school system where he learned to speak Latin by the third grade good enough to perform the Mass ceremony in that language. Later, he attended Chicago Vocational High School. At the tender age of twenty-two Jesse started studying and living an alternative life style only afforded to people that have pledged their lives to someone or something. Jesse’s remaining education involved the painful process of learning his life was not his to give or pledge. He was already taken.

    NOTE: The different number of pages for the paperback and Kindle editions is almost certainly due to the fact that Amazon uses an algorithm to calculate the number of pages for a Kindle edition. I am confident that the number of pages given the the paperback (i.e., 432 pages) is accurate and the correct number.

    I am about 2/3 through the book and there were a couple chilling chapters - the one that Jesse goes into why he believes Hubbard was murdered is not to be missed - the premise he expresses - is that Hubbard had a stroke, and Dr. Denk was guilty of medical malpractice - he never took Hubbard to a hospital afterwards, and that after another Hubbard was suffering from dysphasia, (per Dr. Denk's final medical report) and likely not communicating clearly or intelligibly, written or speaking, so instead of getting him hospitalized - he is given Vistaril, which is a downer. Thrown into the mix, he was a heavy drinker, and likely was suffering alcohol withdrawal symptoms (Hubbard was a heavy drinker) The M.E. found he had 10 injections of Vistraril.

    Jesse's basic message - the murder was committed by denying Hubbard medical treatment - your classic overt of omission. Where have we seen this before? A book called Ruthless? By someone's father? Do we see a repeating MO?

    It seems mankind's greatest friend wasn't exactly surrounded by many friends in his time of need, was he? Nope. They were gambling in Vegas, a city that's frequently called... Sin City

    How ironic.


    Symptoms of a stroke
    Muscular: difficulty walking, instability, paralysis with weak muscles, problems with coordination, stiff muscles, overactive reflexes, or paralysis of one side of the body
    Visual: blurred vision, double vision, sudden visual loss, or temporary loss of vision in one eye
    Whole body: fatigue, lightheadedness, or vertigo
    Speech: difficulty speaking, slurred speech, or speech loss
    Sensory: pins and needles or reduced sensation of touch
    Facial: muscle weakness or numbness
    Limbs: numbness or weakness
    Also common: difficulty swallowing, headache, inability to understand, mental confusion, or rapid involuntary eye movement

    What Is Dysphasia?
    Dysphasia is a type of disorder where a person has difficulties comprehending language or speaking due to some type of damage in the parts of the brain responsible for communication. The symptoms of dysphasia vary based on the region of the brain that was damaged. There are different regions responsible for understanding language, speaking, reading, and writing, though typically they are found in the left side of the brain. Sometimes dysphasia is also referred to as aphasia, though generally it's considered a less severe version of aphasia.

    Vistaril Side Effects

    Common Side Effects of Vistaril
    The side effects of Vistaril are generally mild and don't last long. They include:
    Fixed drug eruptions, or isolated red or purple lesions on the skin that reappear in the same spots whenever the drug is taken
    Pruritus, rash, and urticaria (hives)
    Dry mouth
    Severe Side Effects of Vistaril
    On rare occasions, Vistaril may cause serious side effects. Call your doctor if you experience:
    Involuntary motor activity, such as movement in your eyes, tongue, jaw, or neck
    Tremor (uncontrolled shaking)
    Convulsions (seizures)
    Respiratory problems, such as labored breathing

    What Is Alcohol Withdrawal?

    More serious problems range from hallucinations about 12 to 24 hours after that last drink to seizures within the first 2 days after you stop. You can see, feel, or hear things that aren't there.
    That isn’t the same as delirium tremens, or DTs as you’re likely to hear them called. DTs usually start 48 to 72 hours after you put down the glass. These are severe symptoms that include vivid hallucinations and delusions. Only about 5% of people with alcohol withdrawal have them. Those that do may also have:
    Racing heart
    High blood pressure
    Heavy sweating

    Well, perhaps it's karma of some sort for old L.Ron. After all, his system nurtured and created Miscavige.

    While Hubbard was whisked to a hospital in 1978 for a pulmonary embolism Miscavige murdered Lisa McPherson when she suffered the same.

    Then Hubbard in pretty much the same way.

    Thanks Mimsey!

    I'd say that mankind greatest friend was surrounded by the best people on earth..but mankind greatest friend was so mentally, emotionnaly insane he didn't make the difference wiht friends and slaves..thus he declared his greatest friends and destroyed them..while keeping aside of him all the morons(money and power suckers)..some still there, masome in the hole.

    That was fortunate for the good people though, since they could make a new life away of this soul weapon.

    A momma is the best person to teach one to make difference between a real friend and a false one. LRH didn't have a clue and I don't know why. Personality disorders ?? Mental ilnesses???

    The beast created a second beast ..a copy paste action.

    I always believed Miscavige is the no1 LRH true believer and practitionner.

    Personality disorder. It's easy to con a con, they usually don't have a clue when someone is conning them. They are reality challenged.
