24 Jan

Auditors and Scientologists for 27 years have tended to be suspicious of HCOBs and Policy Letters not written by myself.

Until a few months ago my opinion was that this, while flattering, was not entirely justified.However, these last few months have sharply changed my belief into total agreement with all those who have expressed some fear of reinterpretations of bulletins by others.

I have been engaged for some months now in a roundup of out-tech issues.

And I have found, I am sorry to say, that mice have been gnawing at the pillars of the Bridge, putting up traffic barriers and false detour signs. I have been finding serious out- tech issues and correcting them. Whether because of misunderstood words (the commonest cause of out-tech alterations) or other reasons, there have been a staggering number of tech sectors that have been corrupted by issues by others that alter-ised.

The corrections I have been doing have been, are being or will be issued shortly. However, not all auditors and Scientologists keep pace with current issues and so I am here giving you a rapid summary of the gross departures from standard tech which have occurred in the past 3 or 4 years and their corrections.

So you were right!

A very few people (3 or 4) have wittingly or unwittingly brought about outnesses which could easily make the difference between successful case handling and failed cases. Action has been taken to handle them and there are a great many good people at work now in compiling and reissuing the workable tech which I developed in the first place.

It is now forbidden to write an HCOB or an HCO PL and sign my name to it.

If anyone helped compile it or wrote it, my name is followed by "Assisted by _______," the person who helped get it back together at my directions. Also no Board -Technical Bulletin may cancel an HCOB.

  HCOB 24 January 1977 Tech Correction Roundup :

For a number of years people have wondered when OT VIII would be released.

Well, to tell you the honest truth, OT VIII has been in existence all those several years, and to it has been added a very large number of OT grades. None of them have ever been issued. Notes for all these grades are in existence. What I have been waiting for is 2 or 3 months of free time to go over these materials and write them up and make them available through Advanced Organizations.

Now, I will make a bargain with you. If you get all tech straightened out and the orgs and flaps and emergencies off my lines and get your training in and Word Clearing in and everyhting flying and this civilization even more thoroughly pointed in a civilized direction, you will buy me those 3 months worth of time so I will be able to afford the time to write up all these Advanced Levels I have researched. Do your job well and buy me these 3 months.

Is it a bargain?



Ron never does write these OT Levels up - because after he dies in 1986 - Pat Broeker trys to use these research notes to put together OT 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 etc. These Upper Bridge OT levels were basically a re-hash of the old OT 4, 5, 6, 7.

Broeker never completed this project because Miscavige ousted Broeker as part of a political purge. Ray Mithoff then tried using these research notes to assemble an OT VIII to deliver - and all 3 versions Mithoff issued were a big flop.

  FCDC files a suit, The Founding Church of Scientology v. Clarence Kelley, et al., C.A. No. 77-0175 (D.D.C. January 31, 1977), alleging that it, as well as the class it seeks to represent, has been the subject of a government-wide conspiracy to destroy a religion.

Defendants include the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Attorney General of the United States, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, the Secretary of the Treasury, the Chief of the National Central Bureau of the International Criminal Police Organization, the Director of the National Security Agency, the Secretary of the Army, and the Postmaster General of the Postal Service. The United States is also named as a defendant.

20 Feb
  20 c. February 1977

NOTE: This passage from the Stipulation is being stuck arbitrarily here at this date, because it is a narrative covering a month and a half.) As quoted from the Stipulation:

"During the months of February and March 1977 the cover-up preparation by the Guardian's Office and Information Bureau slowed considerably due to the failure of the defendant Mitchell Hermann (aka Mike Cooper) to complete the outstanding aspects of the cover-up story, and because of the defendant [Gerald] Wolfe's waiver of the rule requiring an indictment within forty-five days of arrest.

Stipulation of Evidence, U.S. District Court for Washington, D.C., Criminal #78401, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA VS. MARY SUE HUBBARD, et. al.


This is the first mention in the Stipulation of any such waiver! Why in the name of all that's fabricated did Gerald Wolfe WAIVE the rule that would have FORCED the US Attorney's Office to get an indictment returned on him within forty-five days of his arrest? This means he GAVE THEM all the time they wanted to come up with the evidence to indict!

Here is the rule, actually quoted from the Stipulation:

"Rule 4(a)(1) of the Rules of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia provides that indictments are to be returned within forty-five days of any arrest which occurred prior to July 1, 1976." This is amazing! Wolfe was arrested ONE DAY prior to 1 July 1976, on 30 June 1976.

So he was still covered, and could have gotten off scot-free, because no indictment was returned within 45 days! But he WAIVED this!

Stipulation of Evidence, U.S. District Court for Washington, D.C., Criminal #78-401, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA VS. MARY SUE HUBBARD, et. al.


In the entire Stipulation, this is only the second mention of this crucial waiver by Gerald Wolfe of the 45-day rule! Why did the GO wait till now, eight months after Wolfe's arrest, to make any inquiry about this waiver? Why has NOBODY from the GO written a SINGLE WORD about this amazing waiver in all the thousands of documents regarding this situation; why has no one indicated OUTRAGE at Wolfe's betrayal via this waiver? INCREDIBLE! This entire government-written story is completely incredible to even the most gullible. It is a fairy tale.

  Henning Heldt informs Mary Sue Hubbard that "Herb [Meisner] is threatening to return to D.C. and handle the scene as he sees fit if the waiver is not withdrawn this week."

They force him onto the back floor of a waiting car. One of the guards holds Meisner down with his feet. Meisner is taken to an apartment at 3219 Descanso Drive in L.A. After Andrus and Alvet leave, "three guards" remain in the apartment with Meisner.

  A Certificate of Revocation is issued against HASI, Inc. by the Arizona Corporation Commission for FAILURE TO FILE AN ANNUAL REPORT.

Arizona Corporations Commission records - HASI Certificate of Revocation


The Articles of Incorporation for HASI state that the termination thereof shall be twenty-five years (25) years thereafter unless the same shall be hereinafter extended in accordance with law. The Articles are dated 10 May 1954, so the HASI was intended to go defunct on 10 May 1979.

The HASI, which is under the control of Guardian's Office personnel, is at this time the owner of ALL COPYRIGHTS AND TRADEMARKS, assigned to HASI by LRH by blanket assignment in 1958. For the past twenty-three years, L. Ron Hubbard has stringently kept the HASI secure, as it holds ALL intellectual property, and it is the membership organization for every Scientologist in the world. Its importance cannot
be overstated. Yet here, it is being ignored and allowed to perish, two years earlier than planned.

10 Jun
  Immediately following his sentencing by Judge Flannery, Wolfe is served with a subpoena to appear that same afternoon before the United States Grand Jury for the District of Columbia which has been investigating entries into the United States Courthouse. At approximately 1 p.m., Wolfe appears before the October 1976 Grand Jury. He is represented by attorney David Schmidt, Esq.

The Grand Jury is investigating to determine whether violations of statutes of the United States and the District of Columbia have been committed. It is attempting to identify the individuals who had committed, caused the commission of, and conspired to commit such violations. It is material to its investigation for it to determine the reasons for the presence of Wolfe and one "John M. Foster" in the US Courthouse on May 21, 28 and June 11, 1976.

The Grand Jury is seeking the reasons for Wolfe's use on May 28 of an identification card bearing the last name "Haake," and his use on June 11, 1976, of counterfeit IRS credentials bearing the name of "Thomas J. Blake." It is also material for the Grand Jury to determine whether, while in the Courthouse, Wolfe and the individual using the name "Foster" had entered the office of any Assistant United States attorney for the District of Columbia, and, if so, whether they had unlawfully taken any documents or files located therein.

Moreover, the Grand Jury wants to learn whether Wolfe and "Mr. Foster" had photocopied any documents which were the property of the Office of United States
Attorney for the District of Columbia, and the United States of America, on photocopying machines within that office.

The Grand Jury seeks to learn from Wolfe the true identity of the individual who had entered the Courthouse with him and used the name John M. Foster." It also is inquiring into the manner in which Wolfe and "Mr. Foster" had obtained the counterfeit and forged IRS credentials which they had used to enter the Courthouse. Finally, the Grand Jury is
attempting to determine whether any other individual in the District of Columbia or elsewhere had conspired with, aided and abetted, or caused the defendant Wolfe to obtain his counterfeit IRS credentials, or assisted him in entering the United States Courthouse.

During his testimony under oath before the federal Grand Jury, Wolfe "knowingly
made...false declarations regarding the above-mentioned material matters."

Stipulation of Evidence, U.S. District Court for Washington, D.C., Criminal #78-401, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA VS. MARY SUE HUBBARD,


Why is the Grand Jury seeking to learn "the true identity of the individual who had entered the Courthouse with [Wolfe] and used the name "John M. Foster," when there is already an arrest warrant for Michael Meisner for being that person?


10 Jun
  Immediately following his Grand Jury appearance Gerald Wolfe goes to the office of the Church of Scientology at 2125 S Street, N.W., in Washington, D.C. where he is debriefed "by Guardian's Office officials."

Note from Mike McClaughry:

Huh? Why would he go to the Church of Scientology after testifying before a grand jury that is investigating him and his accomplices for crimes of infiltrating government agencies, with the FBI hot on his tail. And, after all the work and concern by GO staff to cover up a connection between Wolfe and the church?

Bringing any FSM (covert intelligence agent) into the org, was not to be done and was not done, let alone Wolfe who was in this much hot water!!

I don't believe this entry. I say it is a falsehood that Wolfe went to the org to debrief.

  In June 1977, in Washington, DC, Gerald "Silver" Wolfe was sentenced to probation and community service, having pleaded guilty to the forgery of credentials. On the day he was sentenced, Wolfe was subpoenaed to appear the same afternoon before a grand jury, which had been investigating the entries into the U.S. Courthouse. The FBI was hot on the trail.

Wolfe paraded his carefully drilled story, claiming he had gone to the courthouse library to educate himself in legal research, so he would be able to get a better job. He said his accomplice was only known to him as "John Foster."

"By mid-June," Michael Meisner has decided that if the watch over him is ever relaxed, he will immediately leave the Guardian's Office, surrender to the Federal authorities, plead guilty, and cooperate in the ongoing investigation. Thus, he feigns cooperation with his captors and his superiors in the Guardian's Office in the hope that eventually his guards might be removed. As a reward for this cooperation, Meisner's watch is relaxed.

  Willardson orders the removal of all incriminating documents from the Guardians Office and their placement in the "Red Box."

The Stipulation of Evidence, tries to have us all believe the following, which has no equal in all written history for rank stupidity:

"Government Exhibit No. 219 is the directive regarding Red Box.' It orders that 'all the Red Box material from your areas must be centrally located, together in a movable container (ideally a briefcase), locked, and marked.' Appended to that document is the 'Red Box Data Information Sheet' which defines what is a Red Box?'

Under that definition, 'red Box' includes:

a) Proof that a Scientologist is involved in criminal activities.
b) Anything illegal that implicates MSH, LRH.
c) Large amount of non-FOI docs.
d) Operations against any government group or persons.
e) All operations that contain illegal activities.
f) Evidence of incriminating activities.
g) Names and details of confidential financial accts.

Stipulation of Evidence, U.S. District Court for Washington, D.C., Criminal #78401, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA VS. MARY SUE HUBBARD, et. al.

I feel that no further comment can possibly embellish this creative writing assignment.

Note from Mike:

Well, I'll comment. The USGO B-1 area was located on the ground level floor of the Cedars of Lebanon complex. It was a very large area and had hundreds of file cabinets, reeking with files containing criminal activity. After the raid, a "vetting project" was instituted. Every night an all hands was engaged in to shred entire reports or to cut out of reports with a razor blade, evidence of criminal activity. This activity went on for months on end, such was the volume of the number of files and reports with criminal activity noted in them. In fact, it was still being done when I was made Security Officer at USGO, two years after the raid.

First question - how do you fit all of that into a briefcase?
Second question - why did they not move all of these files to a hidden location?

Finally - why are they involved in criminal activity at all, making any of this necessary?

This probably also explains why no copy of the Snow White program was found.
It sounds like they did take precautions to hide the most damaging of evidence.

  Michael Meisner is taken to the office of Assistant United States Attorney Garey G. Stark. After conferring with his court-appointed attorney, Meisner agrees to enter a plea of guilty to a five-year conspiracy felony pursuant to 18 U.S. Code, Section 371, without any other condition except that he will fully cooperate with the Grand Jury investigation. Meisner requests and is granted protective custody by the United States Marshall Service.

  Shortly after LRH arrived in Sparks, cash was needed so Pat Broeker contacted his soon- to-be-wife, who was the Deputy Commanding Officer of the CMO in Clearwater. They arranged between them for Annie to bring one million dollars in cash from the church. Annie brought the cash to Pat in a briefcase, and turned it over to him at an airport.

This is the point where Broeker starts to cut the line between LRH and MSH by editing letters between them. Over time, Miscavige and Broeker systematically eliminate all of LRH's comm lines except their own. Gradually, every single person with whom Ron has a comm line, including his wife and children, must communicate via the Broekers. Finally, the Broekers are the only ones in direct comm with Ron.

LRH and MSH are living together in La Quinta, California at the time. They spend the next week discussing how to handle their legal situation. Then, he leaves La Quinta with Pat Broeker and goes to Sparks, Nevada.

After the raid, the USGO Intelligence bureau had nightly all hands to destroy evidence of crimes in their remaining intelligence files. It went on for months. At the same time, Vicki Aznaran participates in a massive document destruction program undertaken to destroy any evidence that LRH controlled Scientology.

  The Federal Bureau of Investigation, using chain-saws and axes, mounts three simultaneous early-morning raids of Scientology Guardian's Office facilities on opposite coasts: the Cedars complex and Fifield Manor in California, and the Washington, D.C. [FCDC] office--06:00 hours Pacific time.

Stipulation of Evidence, U.S. District Court for Washington, D.C., Criminal #78-401, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA VS. MARY SUE HUBBARD, et. al


At the time of these raids, the Guardian's Office is managing a number of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) suits against Clarence Kelley and the FBI, plus the CIA, the National Security Agency (NSA), the Department of Defense, Army Intelligence, Naval Intelligence, the Treasury Department (including IRS), INTERPOL, and the Attorney General of the United States.

The CIA, at the time, has appropriated Scientology Advanced Technology via the use of Scientology OTs who have developed "remote-viewing" techniques, and who have trained CIA personnel. The CIA has a super-secret remote-viewing installation now set up, which has been joined to the U.S. Army Intelligence Agency's merger with the Army
Security Agency to form the all-in-one "Intelligence and Security Command" (INSCOM).

Under INSCOM, a major and super-secret remote-viewing program is being established at Fort Meade. It has been described thus: "The...researchers, in rivalry with their Soviet counterparts, were attempting nothing less than the development of the perfect spies, human beings who, undetectably and at almost zero cost, could spy upon the most remote, sensitive, and heavily guarded locations."

The program has gone under the code name SCANATE (for "SCAN by coordiNATE"), but soon will become Project GRILL FLAME, and evolve into Project STAR GATE. The CIA, NSA, and the Defense Intelligence agencies are all fighting the Guardian's Office FOIA actions, partly ON THE GROUNDS OF NATIONAL SECURITY. Even Congress, apparently, does not know about these secret intelligence projects utilizing Scientology and Scientologists.

Agents Search Scientology Offices for U.S. Documents

Federal agents raided Church of Scientology offices here and in Los Angeles yesterday in search of masses of documents they said were illegally taken by covert agents for the church from the government's voluminous investigative files on the group.

Spies for the church allegedly stole the files over the past two years by infiltrating federal agencies, burglarizing government offices and on at least one occasion bugging an Internal Revenue Service meeting according to an affidavit filed by an FBI agent in support of the search warrants.

The plot originated at the very highest level of the church and resulted in numerous illegal entries by Scientology agents into the Justice Department, the Internal Revenue Service and the U.S. Attorney's Office here, according to the affidavit.

The information in the affidavit came from a man who was once one of the top five in now being held guard by U.S. Marshals because of his fear of reprisal from the church, federal officials said.

Although government officials have not publicly outlined the specific reasons for its intense interest in the sect, several said the monitoring has been carried out because of the international aspects of the unusual organization and allegations that it practices mind control on its converts. The government also has been trying to determine if the group is a bonafide religion and deserves to retain the tax exempt status held by most of its branches, according to officials.

Scientologists have suits pending against the government under the Freedom of Information Act in which the church is trying to seek access to what it contends are volumious government files on the religion. The sect also has claimed it has been the subject of widespread government harrassment in the past.

Both Young and The Rev. Hugh Wilhere, Scientology spokesman in D.C. denied that the government's informant in the case. Michael Meisner, was a former top Scientology official and scoffed at the FBI allegation that Scientologists would countenance break-ins and buggings. Young said the church has only used legal means, such as the Freedom of Information Act, to get documents from the government.

  In the Freedom of Information Act case, "CHURCH OF SCIENTOLOGY OF
CALIFORNIA (CSC), Plaintiff, v. [Secretary of the Treasury] William E. SIMON et al., Defendants" (Civil Action No. 76-1719, United States District Court, District of Columbia), Judge John Lewis Smith, Jr. rules that documents sought by CSC from the Treasury Department's Office of the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement, Operations, and Tariff claims; from the Treasury Department's Office of General Counsel; and from the United States Secret Service--documents pertaining to CSC, L. Ron Hubbard, and Scientology-- fall "within the penumbra of agency's 'executive' privilege which exempts from FOIA the decision-making processes of government agencies."

Note: This ruling, coming just one week after the FBI raids, went completely unnoticed, the media being saturated with stories like the New York Times article, above,
concerning the raid, and the government's accusations of having been infiltrated and spied upon by "the Scientologists."

It must also be noted that William E. Simon, Secretary of the Treasury, is the superior of IRS Commissioner Donald Alexander, whose Assistant to the Commissioner over the last few years has been Meade Emory.

Emory goes on, in 1982, to become co-founder of the corporation known as "Church of
Spiritual Technology" (CST), which becomes final beneficiary of L. Ron Hubbard's estate, and controlling owner of all copyrights and trademarks related to Scientology. Finally, it must be noted that this case had been begun in December of 1974, almost exactly at the time when Gerald Wolfe was hired by IRS as a clerk typist despite a hiring freeze, and within weeks of Meade Emory starting as Assistant to Commissioner of IRS.

  LRH allegedly flees La Quinta with Diane Reisdorf, Claire Rousseau and Pat Broeker. They end up in Sparks, Nevada, where LRH stays through December 1977, allegedly in hiding from authorities because of possible repurcussions from the FBI raids.

Bare Faced Messiah, Chapter 21

21 Jul
  Judge John Lewis Smith, Jr. issues a ruling in the Freedom of Information Act suit filed by the Founding Church of Scientology of Washington, D.C. Inc. (FCDC) against the National Security Agency (NSA) [Civil Action No. 76-1494, United States District Court, District of Columbia], stating that "records which would disclose information about the nature of the NSA's activities, including its functions are "exempt from disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act," and grants NSA's motion for summary judgement--meaning that the NSA doesn't have to release the contested documents to FCDC, and the case is over.


This is the SAME judge that, less than a week earlier, on 15 July, ruled against the Church of Scientology of California (CSC) in their FOIC case against the Treasury Department and the Secret Service. This case, like the CSC case, goes completely unnoticed in the flurry of media stories about the FBI raids, and government claims of "infiltration and espionage" by "the Scientology cult." FCDC appeals this case, and
although that appeal is argued before the Appeals Court in March of 1978, no ruling is issued by the Appeals Court until 15 May 1979--AFTER fed-friendly judge Charles R. Richey has been assigned to the criminal case against Mary Sue Hubbard and other Guardian's Office executives, with a trial date set.

Boy does Meisner have good timing! He became a government witness, resulting in the FBI raid and all its publicity, just as these FOIA cases were being ruled in favor of the government Intelligence Agencies. Makes you wonder if he had turned and became a double agent for the government years ago!

But perhaps the most pertinent and startling fact about these two cases has gone entirely unremarked until now: BOTH of these FOIA actions were started in December of 1974.

That is almost exactly coincident with the hiring of Gerald Wolfe as a clerk typist at IRS despite a hiring freeze; with the arrival of Meade Emory at IRS as Assistant to the Commissioner of IRS; and with the inception of the government-alleged activities--known colloquially as "Snow White"--that, in 1979, become the subject of the government's "Stipulation of Evidence" against Mary Sue Hubbard and 10 other Guardian's Office officials, ultimately destroying the Guardian's Office, and leading to the founding of CST by Meade Emory and others.

And here, in July of 1977, BOTH of these cases are rapidly brought to conclusion by the same federal judge, almost immediately after the FBI raids that mark the end of that same government "Stipulation of Evidence."

In short, the time period of the government's "Stipulation of Evidence," and the time period of these two critical FOIA suits, are almost EXACTLY coincident.

Transcript of Opening Remarks by Senator Inouye, available on the internet


This Congressional committee, like its predecessors "investigating" the CIA, never mention a single word about the CIA's remote viewing (Psychic Warfare) programs.

03 Aug

On August 3rd, 1977 the 95th U.S. Congress opened hearings into the reported abuses concerning the CIA's TOP SECRET mind control research program code named MK Ultra. On February 8th, 1988, an MKUltra victim, Cathy O'Brien, was covertly rescued from her mind control enslavement by Intelligence insider Mark Phillips. Their seven year pursuit of Justice was stopped FOR REASONS OF NATIONAL SECURITY. Learn the shocking details behind this coverup in their newly released book:

TRANCE Formation of America

If anyone had any question as to what I consider "evil" before, this should help clarify it. Destroying another being's mind or sanity such as is described on this website is spiritually sick beyond compare.

  An article by J. Wilhelm, "Psychic Spying?" appears in The Washington Post, Outlook Section, August 7, 1977.

A report, "Parapsychology in Intelligence: A Personal Review and Conclusions,"
by Dr. Kenneth A. Kress; appeared in the Winter 1977 issue of Studies in Intelligence, the CIA's classified internal publication; report released to the public in 1996


"Concrete evidence that electronic mind control was the true object of study at Stanford Research Institute (SRI) was exposed by the Washington Post in 1977. When the Navy awarded a contract to the Institute, "the scientific assistant to the Secretary of the Navy, Dr. Sam Koslov, received a routine briefing on various research projects, including SRI's. As the briefer flashed his chart onto the screen and began to speak, Koslov stormily interrupted, 'What the hell is that about?' Among the glowing words on the projected chart, the section describing SRI's work was labeled, 'ELF and Mind Control.'

"'ELF' stands for 'extremely long frequency' electromagnetic waves, from the very slow brain frequencies up to about 100 cycles per second.... But the 'Mind Control' label really upset Koslov. He ordered the SRI investigations for the Navy stopped, and canceled another $35,000 in Navy funds slated for more remote viewing work. Contrary to Koslov's attempt to kill the research, the Navy quietly continued to fork out $100,000 for a two- year project directed by a bionics specialist.

The "remote viewing" team at SRI was really engaged in projecting words and images directly to the cranium. It was not a humanitarian pastime: the project was military and test subjects are subjected to a lifetime of EM torture plied with the same thorough disregard for human rights as the radiation tests conducted at the height of the Cold War. To be sure, the treatment subjects have received at the hands of their own government would be considered atrocities if practiced in wartime.

"Mind control was also used in domestic covert operations designed to further the CIA's heady ambitions, and during the Vietnam War period SRI was a hive of covert political subterfuge. The Symbionese Liberation Army, like the People's Temple, was a creation of the CIA. The SLA had at its core a clique of black ex-convicts from Vacaville Prison. Donald DeFreeze, otherwise known as "Cinque", led the SLA. He was formerly an informant for the LAPD's Criminal Conspiracy Section and the director of Vacaville's Black Cultural Association (BCA), a covert mind control unit with funding from the CIA channeled through SRI.

The Menlo Park behavior modification specialists experimented with psychoactive drugs administered to members of the BCA. Black prisoners were programmed to murder selected black leaders once on the outside. The CIA/SRI zombie killer hit list included Oakland school superintendent Dr. Marcus Foster, and Panthers Huey Newton and Bobby Seale, among others. DeFreeze stated that at Vacaville in 1971-72, he was the subject of a CIA mind control experiment.

He described his incarceration on the prison's third floor, where he was corralled by CIA agents who drugged him and said he would become the leader of a radical movement and kidnap a wealthy person. After his escape from Vacaville (an exit door was left unlocked for him), that's exactly what he did.

"EM mind control machines were championed at SRI by Dr. Karl Pribram, director of the Neuropsychology Research Laboratory: "I certainly could educate a child by putting an electrode in the lateral hypothalamus and then selecting the situations at which I stimulate it. In this was I can grossly change his behavior." Psychology Today touted Pribram as "The Magellan of Brain Science."

He obtained his B.S. and M.D. degrees at the University of Chicago, and at SRI studied how the brain processes and stores sensory imagery. He is credited with discovering that mental imaging bears a close resemblance to hologram projection (the basis for transmitting images to the brains of test subjects under the misnomer "remote viewing"?).

This article provides the first public look at parapsychology being used in intelligence. Not a single mention of Scientologists being involved with the CIA in developing the remote viewing (Psychic Warfare) program.

  CIA Director Stansfield Turner reveals publicly that CIA has had operational interest in parapsychology: J. O'Leary, "Turner Denies CIA Bugging of South Korea's Park," The Washington Star, 9 August 1977.

  The Kennedy subcommittee is holding hearings, with testimony from Dr. Charles Geschickter, who has served CIA's Technical Services Staff both as researcher and funding conduit, testing knockout drugs, stress-producing chemicals, and mind-altering substances on mental defectives and terminal cancer patients.

A Senate subcommittee on Health and Scientific Research, chaired by Senator Ted Kennedy, focuses on the CIA's testing of LSD on unwitting citizens. Only a mere handful of people within the CIA reportedly knew about the scope and details of the program. Testifying before the subcommittee is CIA's Dr. Sidney Gottlieb. The subcommittee learns about the CIA Operation MKULTRA through the testimony of Gottlieb. The purpose of the program, according to his testimony, was to "investigate whether and how it was possible to modify an individual's behavior by covert means."

Claiming the protection of the National Security Act, Gottlieb is unwilling to tell the Senate subcommittee what has been learned or gained by these experiments. He does state, however, that the program was initially engendered by a concern that the Soviets and other enemies of the United States would get ahead of the U.S. in this field.

Article: "Mind Control" By Harry V. Martin and David Caul, available on the Internet


Gottlieb was the head of the CIA's operation that started the remote viewing program with Hal Puthoff, Ingo Swann, and Pat Price--all Scientology OTs. He hides behind "national security" while helping to direct all attention to the inflammatory
"revelations' being made about MKULTRA.

In all the Kennedy committee "investigations," absolutely NO mention is made about the extensive remote viewing (Psychic Warfare) efforts being undertaken at the very moment of Gottlieb's testimony. That it is still an active and heavily pursued program as later proved by the enormous sums of money put into it under the changed names of "GRILL FLAME," etc. Meanwhile, Scientology is being methodically dismantled down the street.

  Former CIA Director Richard Helms appears in federal court in Washington, D.C. for sentencing on two misdemeanor counts of perjury before a Congressional Committee. Judge Barrington D. Parker read him a stern lecture:

"You considered yourself bound to protect the Agency whose affairs you had administered and to dishonor your solemn oath to tell the truth ...[unreadable] public officials embark deliberately on a course to disobey and ignore the laws of our land because of some misguided and ill-conceived notion and belief that there are earlier commitments and considerations which they must observe, the future of our country is in jeopardy.

"There are those employed in the intelligence security community of this country...who feel that they have a license to operate freely outside the dictates of the law and otherwise to orchestrate as they see fit. Public officials at every level, whatever their position, like any other person, must respect and honor the Constitution and the laws of the United States.

"You now stand before this court in disgrace and shame," he says. And then he imposes his sentence: a $2000 fine--the maximum--and two years in jail, to be suspended.

  Judge Charles R. Richey issues an adverse ruling against the Founding Church of Scientology of Washington, D.C. (FCDC) in the class-action lawsuit they are engaged in against:

the Director of the FBI;
the Director of the National Security Agency (NSA);
the Director of the CIA;
The Attorney General of the United States;
the Secretary of the Treasury (includes IRS);
the Secretary of the Army;
the Postmaster General of the United States.
the Chief of the National Central Bureau of the International Criminal Police Organization (INTERPOL)

Judge Richey denies FCDC's motion to compel the defendants to answer interrogatories. Richey opines that:

The government's interest in preserving the secrecy of an ongoing criminal investigation outweighs FCDC's need for the information sought. Motion denied.


Judge Richey makes other rulings in the following year that are equally beneficial to the federal agencies, and further protects them from having to reveal information to FCDC in discovery. Then, in 1979, this same fed-friendly Judge Charles R. Richey is given the plum assignment of presiding over the media-rich criminal case of the United States vs. Mary Sue Hubbard, et. al--but only after TWO other judges step down from the case, allowing assignment to Richey.

  By December 1977, Hubbard could no longer resist the temptation to turn his scripts to celluloid. The would-be spectacular Revolt in the Stars was too ambitious, and would require the skills and budget of the movie Star Wars, but he could make a start with Scientology promotional and Tech films. The Tech films were to be demonstrations of good auditing practice. Hubbard moved back to winter HQ at La Quinta.
