L. RON HUBBARD WAS A FRAUD AND A FLAKE AS IS DIANETICS AND THE "DIANETICIANS"!
....."Hubbard insisted that he had been working undercover for Naval Intelligence to break up black magic in America and to investigate links between the occultists and prominent scientists at the Parsons mansion.
Hubbard said the mission was so successful that the house was razed and the black magic group was dispersed.
But Parsons' widow, Cameron, disputed Hubbard's account in a brief interview with The Times. She said the two men "liked each other very much" and "felt they were ushering in a force that was going to change things."
In early 1950, Hubbard published an intriguing article in a 25-cent magazine called Astounding Science Fiction. In it, he said that he had uncovered the source of man's problems.
The article grew into a book, written in one draft in just 30 days and entitled "Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health." It would become the most important book of Hubbard's life.
She said in her suit that Hubbard had deprived her of sleep, beaten her and suggested that she kill herself, "as divorce would hurt his reputation."
During the legal proceedings, Sara placed in the court record a letter she had received from Hubbard's first wife.
"Ron is not normal," it said. "I had hoped you could straighten him out. Your charges probably sound fantastic to the average person -- but I've been through it -- the beatings, threats on my life, all the sadistic traits which you charge -- 12 years of it."
At one point in the marital dispute with Sara, Hubbard spirited their 1-year-old daughter, Alexis, to Cuba. From there, he wrote to Sara:
"I have been in the Cuban military hospital, and am being transferred to to the United States as a classified scientist immune from interference of all kinds.... My right side is paralyzed and getting more so.
"I hope my heart lasts. I may live a long time and again I may not. But Dianetics will last ten thousand years -- for the Army and Navy have it now."
Hubbard, who had earlier accused his wife of infidelity and said she suffered brain damage, closed his letter by threatening to cut his infant daughter from his will.
"Alexis will get a fortune unless she goes to you, as she then would get nothing," he wrote.
He also wrote a letter to the FBI at the height of the Red Scare accusing Sara of possibly being a Communist, along with others whom he said had infiltrated his dianetics movement.
The FBI, after interviewing Hubbard, dismissed him as a "mental case."
In one seven-page missive to the Department of Justice in 1951, he linked Sara to alleged physical assaults on him. He said that on two separate occasions he was punched in his sleep by unidentified intruders.
And then came the third attack.
"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."
After months of sniping at each other -- and a counter divorce suit by Hubbard in which he accused his wife of "gross neglect of duty and extreme cruelty" -- the couple ended their stormy marriage, with Sara obtaining custody of the child. In later years, Hubbard would deny fathering the girl and, as threatened, did not leave her a cent.
Not only was Hubbard's domestic life a shambles in 1951, his once-thriving self-help movement was crumbling as public interest in his theories waned.
The foundations Hubbard had established to teach dianetics were in financial ruin and his book had disappeared from The New York Times bestseller list.
But the resilient self-promoter came up with something new. He called it Scientology, and his metamorphosis from pop therapist to religious leader was under way.
Scientology essentially gave a new twist to the Dianetics notion of painful experiences that lodge in the "reactive mind." In Scientology, Hubbard held that memories of such experiences also collect in a person's soul and date back to past lives.
For many of Hubbard's early followers, Scientology was not believable, and they broke with him. But others would soon take their place, conferring upon Hubbard an almost saintly status.
But as Hubbard's renown and prosperity grew in the 1960s, so, too, did the questions surrounding his finances and teachings. He was accused by various governments -- including the U.S. -- of quackery, of brainwashing, of bilking the gullible through high-pressure sales techniques.
In 1967, Hubbard took several hundred of his followers to sea to escape the spreading hostility. But they found only temporary safe harbor from what they believed had become an international conspiracy to persecute them.
To his followers, L. Ron Hubbard was bigger than life. But it was an image largely of his own making.
A Los Angeles Superior Court judge put it bluntly while presiding over a Church of Scientology lawsuit in 1984. Scientology's founder, he said, was "virtually a pathological liar" about his past.
There was his claim, for example, of being a nuclear physicist. This was an important one because he said he had used his knowledge of science to develop Scientology and dianetics.
Hubbard was, in fact, enrolled in one of the nation's early classes in molecular and atomic physics at George Washington University, in Washington, D.C., where he unsuccessfully pursued a civil engineering degree. But he flunked the class.
On another occasion, Moulton testified during the 1984 Scientology lawsuit, Hubbard said his eyes had been damaged by the flash of a large-caliber gun. Hubbard himself, in a tape-recorded lecture, said his eyes were injured when he had "a bomb go off in my face."
These injury claims are significant because Hubbard said he cured himself through techniques that would later form the tenets of Scientology and Dianetics.
Military records, however, reveal that he was never wounded or injured in combat, and was never awarded a Purple Heart.
Moreover, his eye problems did not result from an exploding bomb or the blinding flash of a gun. Rather, Hubbard said in military records, he contracted conjunctivitis from exposure to "excessive tropical sunlight."
The truth is that Hubbard spent the last seven months of his active duty in a military hospital in Oakland, for treatment of a duodenal ulcer he developed while in the service.
Hubbard did, however, receive a monthly, 40% disability check from the government through at least 1980.
Government records also contradict Hubbard's claim that he had fully regained his health by 1947 with the power of his mind and the techniques of his future religion.
Late that year, he wrote the government about having "long periods of moroseness" and "suicidal inclinations." That was followed by a letter in 1948 to the chief of naval operations in which he described himself as "an invalid."
And, during a 1951 examination by the Veterans Administration, he was still complaining of eye problems and a "boring-like pain" in his stomach, which he said had given him "continuous trouble" for eight years, especially when "under nervous stress."

Tom Cruise is Appalled?
Not as much as I am!
I think it's appalling that Tom Cruise is allowed to shill for his cult
on national media forums. It's appalling that he and other Scientologist
actors and actresses are able to address governing bodies which make
policy that affects all of us. I am appalled that the so-called "church"
of Scientology continues to abuse and defraud innocent people. I am
appalled that they create phony front groups which purport to tackle
social problems, while all they really are is a recruitment arm for the
"church." I am appalled that Scientology front groups such as Narconon,
Criminon and Second Chance are even considered by state legislatures, as
they only use these groups to spread Scientology and the dangerous
Purification Rundown. However, the one thing I am most appalled and
disgusted by are the Scientology Volunteer Ministers, who flock to
tragedy in order to prey on vulnerable victims. 9-11 Jerusalem hospitals
Breslan Tsunami California wildfires Columbine shooting As bad or worse
than ambulance chasing lawyers, the VMs have been kicked out of several
disaster areas, as they provide nothing but imaginary healing touches
and copies of The Way to Happiness, a nice little booklet of Hubbardian
homilies. They've moved in and taken over distribution of goods donated
by others. They pose for nice PR pictures. They get in the way. They
endanger rescue workers with their presence. Happily, some governments
can see through their facade of "help" and eject them from disaster
areas. They know it's just Scientology, trying to profit from tragedy.
"The Closet," the Controversy--and Cruise
By Joal Ryan
Fri Mar 17, 8:49 PM ET
Wednesday night on South Park, Robert Redford got zinged,
and Chef urged one and all to "suck on my chocolate salty balls."
The controversial part was what didn't air: A closet.
"Trapped in the Closet," a South Park episode featuring
a literally closeted
Sundance Film Festival.
The network wouldn't confirm or comment Friday on why "Trapped
in the Closet" was shelved in favor of the 1998 episode "Chef's
Chocolate Salty Balls."
Cruise's rep, however, did comment:
"This has nothing to do with us," publicist Arnold Robinson said
Cruise, a Scientologist who has staunchly defended his
religion and an avowed heterosexual who has successfully sued people and
publications that have suggested he is in the metaphorical closet, was
pegged as the culprit in the South Park switcheroo in a report
Thursday on HollywoodInterrupted.com.
The blog reported that
the star "threatened" to sit out the publicity cycle for Mission:
Impossible 3--presumably meaning no interviews, no photo-ops, no
Oprah couch--if "Trapped in a Closet" aired again on Comedy
M:I-3 is due to be released in May by
Paramount, which is the corporate sibling of Comedy Central, which is,
like Paramount, owned by Viacom.
Specifically responding to
Cruise's reputed corporate power play, rep Robinson said: "That is not
This is not the first time Cruise has been linked to
the closing of "Closet." In January, Britain's Sun reported the
episode would "never" air in the United Kingdom because TV executives
there were "scared [Cruise] will sue." (The episode apparently aired
without incident in Canada a few days later.)
isn't the first time Comedy Central has been accused of caving. Last
December, a Catholic rights' group took credit for the network pulling
reruns of South Park's Virgin Mary-skewering ninth season finale,
South Park creators Trey Parker and
Matt Stone, meanwhile, have weighed in on the latest controversy--with
"So, Scientology, you may have won THIS
battle, but the million-year war for earth has just begun!" the
self-described "servants of the dark lord Xenu" said in a statement
Thursday that does not mention Cruise. "Temporarily anozinizing our
episode will NOT stop us from keeping Thetans forever trapped in your
Earlier this week, Parker and Stone
publicly parted ways with
Isaac Hayes, the longtime voice of Chef,
after the "Shaft" legend complained South Park had gone too far
in satirizing religion. The duo said Hayes, a Scientologist, never
complained about the show until it took on Scientologists.
"Trapped in the Closet" first aired last Nov. 16. In it, a cartoon
version of Cruise enters a closet, and doesn't come out for quite a
while. Cruise is eventually joined in the closet by fellow Scientologist
John Travolta and R&B singer R. Kelly, who wrote the soap opera of a
song that shares its name with the episode title.
Also in the
episode, South Park tyke Stan is recruited to join the Church of
Scientology, and, in the process, gets an earful about "frozen alien
bodies," Hawaiian volcanoes and the "evil lord Xenu."
you got it [Scientology] all wrong," Hayes said he told Parker and Stone
in a January interview with The A.V. Club. "We're not like that."
Comedy Central would not say if "Trapped in the Closet" will
reair at a later date, or if it will be included in South Park's
Video clips from the episode, including
the bits with Cruise and the closet, and Stan and the Scientologists,
can be found on the Comedy Central Website.
In a bit of timing
that is said to be coincidental and not at all related to the "Closet"
controversy, South Park begins its 10th season next Wednesday.
