John Mulholland was a stage magician.


On April 13, 1953, he met with Sidney Gottlieb of the TSS division of the CIA. Gottlieb wanted him to teach undercover agents sleight-of-hand and other techniques for anywhere from passing messages to delivering drugs and poisons surreptitiously.

They agreed that John would write a manual, which the world thought was destroyed but it wasn’t – it was found in 2007 and a book called The CIA manual of Trickery and Deception came out that detailed the whole affair.

mulholland cia manual

Mulholland had four MKUltra subprojects ( 4, 15, 19 and 34 ) that were just for him, starting out with the manual and then branching out later to helping the CIA with psychic and paranormal research even!

I will be detailing much more about this in a later post, but suffice it to say this is all fully documented. For example, here’s the document detailing their initial meeting and getting going. It’s from Black Vault’s MKultra archive, CD #3 folder numbered 17437 (note: document 46 names him and the project as subproject 4).

Document 51 (CIA numbered 4-29) shows when he talked to Gottlieb about making this manual –


Mulholland had been involved with CIA activities already as far back as 1952, and being paid for these “professional services.”

Mulholland was based in New York, and that is where he probably crossed paths with CIA agent Robert Stanley Mandelstam. Mandelstam was a “political action” man – though it wasn’t exactly called that yet – and had assisted fellow CIA agent Miles Copeland with his operations installing a dictator in the Middle East.

Mandelstam was who chose the MRA and Scientology for CIA “political action” with emphasis on combining occult/eastern philosophy religious elements.

Mandelstam traveled from Genoa, Italy, to New York, in July of 1953, and it was not long after this that he contacted Hubbard and they began coming up with a plan to turn scientology into a full-blown religion.


Mandelstam, as documented in Miles Copeland’s book The Game Player, was particularly interested in “occult” influences to attract believers.


I’ll let Miles tell you what the plan was for this “political action”.

In its original form, my theory was that properly ‘charismatized’ leaders, placed in certain positions in the ‘free world’s’ ‘key’ bureaucracies, could be used as political levers by which an enlightened American foreign policy could uplift the world.

…the judicious application of my theory would enable a properly employed CIA to fulfill the Wilsonian pledge to ‘make the world safe for democracy’ while removing certain goings-on here and there that were inconveniencing the American way of life.

– Miles Copeland – The Game Player “political action description” – Chapter 15


Removing certain goings-on, which would have been caused by certain kinds of people. Get the idea what scientology was going to do to its adherents?

I hoped to devise political actions which would boost aspirants of my choice into them, keep them there and channel them into paths leading to prosperity and security for both them and us.

identifying potential leaders and guiding them to their rightful destiny, through democratic means if such were available but unhesitatingly by other means if they were not.

– Miles Copeland, The Game Player, p. 144 (Scientology and the MRA had been “officially” chosen by Miles in 1955)


Other means? Talk about a loaded statement.

wiley-double yikes.

Other means like “auditing” and “ethics tech” for behavior modification?


Now Bob Mandelstam, he was into the hoodoo of it all. Otherwise known as stage-magic, sleight-of-hand, pulling a fast one on people.

Sidney Gotllieb felt that stage magic with its deception and misdirection techniques was a perfect fit with espionage – this is why literally the very next day after he met with John Mulholland, Allen Dulles signed Project MKULTRA into being and Mulholland the magician was one of the first four approved projects!

That’s saying something.

Mandelstam had come back to the U.S. just a few months after that all happened.

Robert Mandelstam enlarge.

Kim Roosevelt (Miles Copeland’s superior) put him to work in “political action” before Miles even got back from Egypt.

I returned from my tour of Washington’s foreign policy bureaucracy with my job cut out for me. Kim Roosevelt had set my new unit in motion without me. He had told my first assistant, a bright and inventive young PhD named Bob Mandlestam, that he should get something started, anything that smacked at all of political action, so that Frank Wisner wouldn’t spot the unit’s inactivity and steal its office space and budget.

Bob eagerly put his imagination to work on some ideas he had been nursing since his university days.
His first was what he called ‘occultism in high places’, or ‘OHP’, a theory of political activism based on an impressively detailed study of ways in which leaders of the world based their judgements on one form or another of divine guidance.

– Miles Copeland, The Game Player, p. 175, 176 (This is the period of 1953 and 1954 – Scientology and the MRA became “officially” chosen by Miles in July 1955)


Bob was into getting scientology set-up like the MRA, with secret channels.

What caught Bob’s [Bob Mandlestam] eye was the social level at which the movement [MRA] operated. It was aimed exclusively at leaders… the arrangement we made with Moral Rearmament gave us useful secret channels right into the minds of leaders not only in Africa and Asia but also in Europe.

When Bob made similar arrangements with Scientology…

– Miles Copeland, The Game Player, p. 175, 176 (This is the period of 1953 and 1954 – Scientology and the MRA became “officially” chosen by Miles in July 1955)


Ron Hubbard was already a CIA asset right from 1950 when the first Dianetics Research Foundation got started. The CIA positioned an agent with the foundation who funneled money for the various “experiments” Hubbard was doing that were right in line with CIA interests.

From my husband’s book, Scientology Roots, Chapter 12-2 Hubbard’s Lifelong Intelligence Career

…we planted an agent in the Scientology cult who became a ‘clear’ under the tutelage of Ron Hubbard himself, and then demanded and got more and more ‘operation expenses’ to be turned over, in addition to his own life’s savings, to the cause of Dianetics.   126

Miles Copeland

The Game Player by Miles Copeland_Page_3

The agent was John Starr Cooke, who brought in Rockefeller money as well. Millions of dollars were laundered through that Foundation, by the way, for off-book CIA use, setting a precedent that would continue throughout the entire history of Hubbard’s many front groups.

Excerpt from the same chapter of my husband’s book –

Charles Morgan worked for the Office of Strategic Services. He helped Hubbard start Dianetics in 1950.

Charles_Parker_Morgan_in_1931_-_lafayette_collegeCharles Parker Morgan, Hubbard’s OSS/CIA connection

We already covered that Charles Morgan suggested forming the Hubbard Dianetic Research Foundation in 1950. [ also see From The FDA Files – L. Ron Hubbard’s OSS/CIA Connection: Charles Parker Morgan ]

They immediately conducted research for the CIA into the Pain-Drugs-Hypnosis behavior modification method.

John Starr Cooke was another CIA operative involved with Hubbard and Dianetics right from the start in 1950.

Joh starr cooke youngJohn Starr Cooke

John Cooke had family connection in the CIA. His sister Alice had married Roger Kent, the brother of Sherman Kent. Sherman was the right hand man to Allen Dulles in the CIA. 39, 97   And, John Cooke worked for the CIA.

John Cooke became a very close confidante to L. Ron Hubbard right there in the beginning. In 1950, John Cooke and his wife, Millen Cooke, went to the Hubbard Dianetics Research Foundation in New Jersey. John Cooke was actually the first Dianetic Clear.

Around the same time Peter Oser and his wife, Mary Oser, flew in from Switzerland to take part in the activities of the Hubbard Dianetics Research Foundation. Peter Oser was the ultra-wealthy grandson of John D. Rockefeller.

Peter Oser (right) John D. Rockefeller (seated)rockefeller-family

John Cooke mastered the techniques of Dianetics, and together with Mary Oser, he flew back to Switzerland and began auditing Peter Oser. Peter essentially became a follower of Cooke and began funneling huge amounts of money to Cooke and the Hubbard Dianetics Research Foundation.

It’s the usual –

come igor rockefeller - slavemaster
Put the money over here!

Sara Northrup was Hubbard’s second wife and in her divorce papers she said the Hubbard Dianetics Research Foundation received over one million dollars in 1950. (That is ten million in money today.)  14  And now we have a good idea of where that million dollars came from.

8 January 1951 – the New Jersey State Board of Medical Examiners brought litigation against the Hubbard Dianetics Research Foundation for operating a school for treatment of disease without a license. Parker Morgan told Hubbard to incorporate Dianetics and Scientology as a religion as a defense against such lawsuits.

In 1951 John Cooke divorced his wife. Peter and Mary Oser also divorced. John Cooke married Mary Oser in 1952.

John Cooke told Hubbard to start a religion. That is two CIA operatives telling Hubbard to do that.

L Ron Hubbard reportedly tracked down Cooke in Tangier.  Hubbard made a trip to London in 1952 to set up a Dianetics centre, and it may have been on this trip that he met with Cooke.  According to Michael Bowen, Hubbard came to Cooke with a tale of woe at how the Dianetics business had failed, and Cooke advised him to relaunch it as a religion.  This was precisely what Hubbard did after moving to Phoenix, Arizona in March 1952.

Black Magic in Tangier

So, now Hubbard has even more CIA connections, besides John Starr Cooke, Paul Linebarger, Charles Morgan, Miles Copeland and Eichelberger, we now have Bob Mandelstam.

By the way, the PR line about all this in the intelligence community was that they were working to deter “communist” psychological warfare and other “bad” activities around the world that were opposing democracy.

Yeah, right.

come on!.

If you’re familiar at all with my recent articles exposing what the Vatican was up to all this time, you’d know that when you see that “communist” thing – what you’re really seeing is an attempt to CONTROL the opposition to the slavemaster two-class system they are forever trying to keep the world under the thumb of.

That is NOT democracy.


But, Charles Parker Morgan did point out to someone that very thing about Dianetics – that it was anti-communist in its work. Did you know that?

Found that recently in the FBI files.

[…] In November 1950, C. PARKER MORGAN, Secretary and General Counsel of the above foundation, with offices at 275 Norris Avenue, Elizabeth, New Jersey, reported the foundation was set up about May 1950 to further the work of L. RON HUBBARD, auditor, whose book entitled "Dianetics" had been published about two years previous and had been very well received by the public. According to MORGAN, "Dianetics" is a new approach to the treatment of many physical and mental illnesses without the use of drugs or medicine. MORGAN stated the foundation is anti-Communist in its work and had been criticized in Communist Party publications.

As you can see, Hubbard’s doing exactly the jobs the CIA wanted right from the beginning.

So, with the new interests in “religious” front groups and special powers and occult by the CIA, what would you expect to see next?


Hubbard going all “occult” and “magic”.

He started talking about Alistair Crowley, and magic on the “whole track” (the past) and how great it all is.

He explained the use of Tarot, he recommended Crowley’s work The Master Therion as “the only modern work that has anything to do with them”. He called Crowley “my very good friend.”

Philadelphia Doctorate Course lecture, December 1, 1952, one place where Hubbard mentions the Tarot.


Mandelstam must have just thought that was all just a hoot! Probably cackling and rubbing his hands together in glee, no doubt.

The same month Hubbard began talking more about Crowley, December 1953, he incorporated three churches in Camden, New Jersey.

15 December 1953 – Ron Hubbard incorporates three churches in Camden, New Jersey:

  • Church of Scientology
  • Church of American Science
  • Church of Spiritual Engineering

We now know the “plan” is afoot for sure now, although Hubbard doesn’t actually do anything with these churches, and in fact goes to a different location completely when the plan goes fully to “on” status after Miles Copeland (who would be Mandelstam’s boss) gets back from Egypt.

By the way, Mandelstam shared quite a bit of similar background and connections with L. Ron Hubbard. For example, he was in the Office of Naval Intelligence during WWII.

Note: Bob is listed in the Jewish deaths database, his parents were Benjamin Mandelstam and Mary Pickin, he was born April 30, 1919 in Sioux City, Iowa.

During World War II, Mr. Mandlestam enlisted in the Navy. He studied Japanese at the Navy’s Oriental Language School in Boulder, Colo., received a commission, and joined the Office of Naval Intelligence in Washington. After the war, he remained with the ONI as a civilian.

In the late 1940s, he joined the CIA. He had a number of assignments with the Defense and State departments, and his foreign posts included Greece and Germany.

In 1969, he resigned from the CIA and went to work for Kermit Roosevelt & Associates, a consulting firm specializing in foreign trade. About 1973, he joined NAVCO, a firm specializing in educational planning, as its international vice president. He retired in 1983.

Bob enlisted 29 Dec 1941 and was released 27 Jul 1946, when he then attended the National War College. He became a “Special Project Director” in the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary (Planning and North Atlantic Affairs) and then went into the CIA.

Reference – THE INFLUENCE OF THE NATIONAL WAR COLLEGE OF UNITED STATES FOREIGN POLICY by Murray B. Frazee, Jr. – August 1965 (The National War College began operations in 1946.)


When he enlisted, as the obituary mentioned, he went into the ONI. He even had the same I-VS designation that Hubbard did – intelligence.

Hubbard’s ONI/Naval Reserve appointment –

Hubbard appointment naval reserve July 5 special service.

Interesting, eh?

So…what else would we expect to see happening with Hubbard now that the CIA (Mandelstam) has a new plan for him?

Figuring out what the scientology “religion” is going to be.


And that’s what he does in 1954.

Ah, but slowly, gotta slip this to the people subtly – it’s that stage magician routine at work here – he started out the year “appearing” adamant that scientology is not a religion.

Issue 24G, Journal of Scientology, is the first issue of 1954 – January. In the article about a particular process called SOP 8C, Hubbard specifically says scientology is NOT a religion.


.Journal of Scientology Issue 24-G p 5 NOT a religion


It’s a new World project – see that? As in the new world “order”.

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 to the individual.

…The processes of Scientology could be described as methods of “unhypnotizing” men to their own freer choice and better life.


The religious aspect starts rearing its ugly head by the May JOS though – issue 32g

Check out this very Catholic statement by Richard Steves –

Steves (center, he’s the groom)

ken barrett richard steves 1957

In the Middle Ages the destruction of mankind waged by witches and such is comparable to science today.

– Richard Steves wrote this.


The Roman Catholic Church burned “witches” at the stake, so…


He’s trying to portray a very Catholic view, that’s for sure. You’ll see why shortly here.

By the way, Steves went on to be part of the National Academy of American Psychology (incorporated by Hubbard December 12, 1957) – this was “investigated” by the Secret Service on behalf of Richard Millhouse Nixon – then Vice-President. See Nixon Era; FDA Documents) Pictures of the Secret Service Agents who Investigated Scientology

What’s now hilarious about that is that Hubbard is a CIA agent when this happens – which throws a whole different light on all these “investigations” of Hubbard and Scientology.

I’m surprised Hubbard didn’t bust out laughing half the time watching these flatfooted FBI, IRS, and Secret Service agents investigate him and never find what he really was. You gotta give him this, apparently he was a lot better at living a cover then most people suspected. He never broke his cover and revealed that connection – not once.

Think about that. That’s some pretty strong loyalty. He certainly kept his word, right on up ’til the day he died.

By the way, Hubbard and his new association called the HASI, start pushing the chosen “enemy” and propaganda line of the CIA again here in 1954. JOS (Journal of Scientology) issue 30g.

Check this out –

atom bomb again may 1954 Journal of Scientology Issue 30-G.

You’ll see some interesting statements in the above that prove what he was now shaping his “movement” into – as per his CIA directives.

For example –

The problem of control is the control of men, not a bomb.

[…] The goal of scientology is sufficient control over the aberrations of Man.

Scientology is the behavior science of the 20th century.

It is a movement toward a saner world…

– JOS (Journal of Scientology) issue 30g.


See? It’s a behavior modification and social engineering plan going on here. By some of the craziest people in the entire world – no less.

Here’s an eye-opener. It shows Hubbard has been doing the MRA (Moral Re-Armament) thing since 1952 – further documenting his total CIA support and actions.

It has been in use for two years on national leaders.

Check this one out too, particularly the wording is fascinating.

Scientology, by altering human energy has duplicated any miracle of yesteryear in healing.

You can see the Catholicism parallels with Jesus and healing coming into play here though too.

But here’s a real doozy – under “How You can Help” Hubbard pushes people to support the League of Nations (total slavemaster operation) which had been renamed and reborn as…the United Nations.

Fourth – put your support behind United Nation programs to handle the Atom Bomb and armament as a United Nations function and demand that the United Nations be composed and act with new realism on these problems.


In my post Forget The Idea That Scientology was “taken over” – It never was anything else I discuss why Hubbard had dutifully first pushed the new chosen propaganda line back in 1950.

After WWII, the slavemasters needed a new “enemy”. Miles Copeland touches upon this time period of just after WWII ended, in his book The Game Player.

pearl harbor was intentional and choosing the new 'enemy' - Game Player by Miles Copeland-3

General Magruder went on to say that he’d spent the past month talking intelligence organization in high places, that he hadn’t heard a word to indicate that President Truman’s words had reached the planners.

The top people in the Departments of State, army, navy and air force were busily concocting dangers that would justify increases in their respective budgets, and they had developed a whole new glossary of cliches for the purpose, ‘preventing another Pearl Harbor’ being one of them.

‘No one,’ [Magruder] said in answer to my question, ‘is asking what, realistically, we Americans have to fear in the post-war world.’

– Miles Copeland


Fear of Russia and Fear of Nuclear War – are what were chosen, and Hubbard was right there on-board with the chosen propaganda targets.

Hubbard’s very first book (Dianetics) goes into the “threat” of nuclear war and why it’s so “urgent” that man be made to fix his nasty ‘reactive mind’.

CHAPTER I The Scope of Dianetics – Dianetics, 1950

A science of mind is a goal which has engrossed thousands of generations of Man.

Armies, dynasties and whole civilizations have perished for the lack of it. Rome went to dust for the want of it. China swims in blood for the need of it; and down in the arsenal is an atom bomb, its hopeful nose full-armed in ignorance of it.

CHAPTER X Dianetics — Past and Future; DIANETICS AND WAR

Man is now faced, by these pyramiding hatreds, with weapons so powerful that Man himself may vanish from the earth. There is no problem in the control of these weapons. They explode when and where Man tells them to explode. The problem is in the control of Man.

…Dianetics addresses war because there is in fact a race between the science of mind and the atom bomb. There may be no future generation to know which won.


A plan starts to solidify into being – Hubbard starts what he calls Operation Phoenix.

Operation Phoenix June 1954 Journal of Scientology Issue 32-G.

Hubbard, armed with Mandelstam CIA tech on surveying populations, conducts a survey of apparently predominantly Catholics in Phoenix.

This is very important, because if you look closely at the following analysis by Hubbard of this survey, you will see a number of things that were then incorporated into what would become the CHURCH of scientology – exactly as Mandelstam and the (slavemasters) CIA wanted. It would now, in a complete turnaround from the first issue of JOS this year, begin the religion route.

Now you know why the change – Hubbard was asked to do this and he had to make it look like it was just his idea and “spontaneous” activity, get it?

Note: He would later inculcate this same “survey tech” into scientology, going so far as to try and say he learned it from some ancient Galactic space-opera civilization in one later reference. See my post Trained In L. Ron Hubbard’s PR Tech – Do We Really Think We Aren’t Being Played? for some very real examples of this that are being utilized by the supposed EX-scientologists in the media right now.

Journal of Scientology issue 35g is a fall issue, but it references a Religious Opinion Poll that had been conducted in the first part of August, 1954, in Phoenix, Arizona.

Just before this survey, Hubbard had done a mass-mailing of a little known circular called the Golden Dawn – which was billed as an “invitation to freedom” and contained the test-form of the Creed of the Church of Scientology.

We can accurately pin down when this mailing went out by the discussion of it contained in a split-off group of Dianeticists who published a magazine called the Aberree.

It was mailed out between August 4th and 6th, 1954. August 6th being the ninth anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima as mentioned by Richard deMille (who was himself a CIA asset).

From the Just Dox Mind Control section of our Reading Library –

ARPA Project Echo 1966-69 – PDF – This is a project involving (amongst other things) psychological manipulation of the “ideology of groups”. One of the scientists involved was Santa Barbara psychologist Richard Demille. Richard also had helped L. Ron Hubbard write/create a number of early materials for Scientology/Dianetics – see Just Dox section – Scientology.



aberree golden dawn page 2.

Text excerpts –

Out of the West – CAME the DAWN p. 1 and page 13

“An Invitation to Freedom” has been sent to 5,000 homes in the Phoenix area as the opening shot in “Operation Phoenix”, a direct mail campaign with the aim of expanding knowledge of and promoting Scientology.

The “Invitation”, which is made up in the form of a magazine called THE GOLDEN DAWN, stresses the religious angle of Scientology, and assures the reader he can “become” immortal “without changing his faith or leaving the congregation to which he belongs”.

THE GOLDEN DAWN is sub-headed as “The Official Publication of the Church of Scientology”. The first issue shows careful planning, with the tenets of Scientology watered down to meet the acceptance level of the public. In addition to explaining Scientology, it gives the Creed and Goals of the Church. Those interested in “freedom” are urged to attend free group processing six times a week — on Saturday and Sunday afternoons and evenings. Sample processing — for being “younger”, feeling “freer”, and “first aid to the injured” — are included.

Eventually, L. Ron Hubbard said recently, every home in Phoenix will be contacted in this drive, but the first mailing was less than 5,000 because facilities for handling too large a crowd are limited. Results of the Phoenix operation will be used as a guide to carry the campaign into other cities.

Mr. Hubbard, in a talk before Phoenix auditors on August 4, outlined the plans for “Operation Phoenix” and discussed the part the auditors would play in it.

As a preliminary to the mailing, all auditors in the Phoenix area were trained and, where necessary, audited so as to bring their own cases and their abilities up to the point where they would be a credit to the organization sponsoring their work.


6 Aug., ’54, “Hiroshima Day”

“Dear Ron:

“Appropriately, I have read this first issue of THE GOLDEN DAWN on this, the ninth anniversary of the destruction of Hiroshima. I find it aesthetically appealing and, except for one or two lines, ethically satisfying.

“I hope that those who take an active part in implementing this new idea will absorb the noble principles which are clearly set down here. That they will eschew conflicts and attacks upon agencies and organizations of this universe, and will instead devote their energies and talents, such as they may be, to promulgating the simple message of this first issue and to practicing in quiet the methods of Scientology, to the end that more and more individual human beings, of every race, creed, color, nationality and political persuasion may know that man is more than a lump of clay fleeing from pain and destined to oblivion.

“I hope that the new Church will have every good fortune in carrying forth the program which I have read today, and that it will be particularly fortunate in the strength, sanity, and personal progress of the individual members who form its starting nucleus, for on their accomplishments it will stand or fall. — Richard deMille.”

The ABERREE SEPTEMBER 1954 Volume 1, Number 5


See this?

  • Results of the Phoenix operation will be used as a guide to carry the campaign into other cities.

This is more proof the CIA plan is now fully engaged.

But really look at this one, by deMille –

  • That they will eschew conflicts and attacks upon agencies and organizations of this universe, and will instead devote their energies and talents…


Oh man, could we have a better description of what the slavemasters wanted?

Not to mention that whole directing of energies where they want them to go that Miles detailed. Here’s that again –

I hoped to devise political actions which would boost aspirants of my choice into them, keep them there and channel them into paths leading to prosperity and security for both them and us.

identifying potential leaders and guiding them to their rightful destiny, through democratic means if such were available but unhesitatingly by other means if they were not.

– Miles Copeland, The Game Player, p. 144 (Scientology and the MRA had been “officially” chosen by Miles in 1955)


Let’s just take a pause here for a moment and really look at this. These insane mother-frackers are who financed and pushed to create the nuclear bomb, then these same people are who insisted it be dropped on Hiroshima, and now they are blaming us for having conflicts and attacks against their agencies?

Oh for fuckssakes…

Kermit the frog excited.

So far, I have never seen a better portrayal of this kind of hypocrisy, than this political cartoon from the time period after WWI where the slavemasters were trying to disembowel America with their “League of Nations” horseshit.

hilarious portrayal of the slavemasters blaming war on the people - disarmament 1921.

OK. Now that we know when this Golden Dawn mailing went out, let’s look at the mailing itself.

This mailing is excellently documented by Caroline Letkeman (Gerry Armstrong). Although, it’s true that Caroline didn’t pursue the right reasons Hubbard was doing this – his CIA/slavemaster connections – she does catch some very salient points like the cross used in the flier – marking the first appearance of the scientology religion cross.

I have also combined these into an OCR’d PDF for easier use.

Here’s the text –

For countless ages a goal of religion has been the salvage of the human soul.

Man has tried by many practices to find the pathway to salvation.

He has held the imperishable hope that someday in some way he would be free.

Man has spoken of the second coming of Christ and of the Judgment Day.

America has kept wide the doorway for this salvation by retaining religious freedom.

And here, after these ages of grief and suffering, through terrible wars and catastrophe, the hope still lives–and with that hope, accomplishment.

Man can save his soul. Like the bright cool dawn after a night of prison and of thunder, man can taste that freedom sought so long.

There are those who will say that only after a lifetime of sacrifice and good doing can the soul be free–that God demands conditions in the freedom and that some have the power of making mankind slaves.

But these things too have answers. And all we tell you now is that we can be free.

Many can be free in a few days. The souls of some can be saved in hours. Those deeply steeped in materialism can be salvaged in months or years.

As Christ said, the innocent can first be saved. In a little time, in minutes, the child can be saved. But the rich and the mighty, the enslaver and destroyer would lag behind for years–but they too can be saved.

If the Christian in Rome had been given this news, that his salvation was imminent, he would have believed and rejoiced. But this is not Rome and Christ is two thousand years crucified–a long time–a time to forget, to disbelieve. Today perhaps a church or “man of God” might spit upon Christ himself if he came to call.

What you read here is factually, literally true. The salvation hoped for these past two thousand years is here. You are being told that in this paragraph. And it is true.

It has not come with blares of trumpets or the flare and flash of flame. It has come quietly into your letter box and you aren’t at all sure you should believe it.

And the salvation itself is not done by sudden drama or a walk on a gleaming cloud–it is done quietly, in a chair as part of a group of people like yourself.

And you don’t have to go to heaven or to hell if you don’t want to. You can be entirely free to go anywhere. And you can be immortal and yet have your body, your family, your friends.

We are extending to you the precious gift of freedom and immortality– factually, honestly.

You are a spirit. You are your own soul. You are not mortal. You can be free.

The arms of God are open to you.

To be well, to be happy, to be free, you have only to come to one or several of our group meetings. It may be you have lived with such an appetite that you will require much more time; however that may be, freedom is yours.

You will have to pay for your freedom, but only as much as you wish, for with that sum in this material world we can make another free.

It may be you will wish to linger and help others to be free. That will require that you study and work.

We embrace all denominations, faiths and colors. We work with the believer and the unbeliever alike. Part of your freedom is your right to belong to any church. Not only do we hold your right to worship to be sacred, we may also insist you do not change your faith or leave the congregation to which you belong.

Scientology is the science of knowing how to know. The mysteries of existence lie, in Scientology, before men’s eyes. The doctors of divinity trained in Scientology know how to know and they know, too, how to set you free from pain, from grief, from suffering, from the endless despair of this vale of tears.

We will not mislead you. We have as part of the Code of a Scientologist, “(3) To refuse to accept for processing and to refuse to accept money from any person or group I feel I cannot honestly help.” Scientology can free the human soul and deliver the body from pain.

Man can save his soul. We know how. If man does not want to be saved that is a decision man must make, each one for himself. You have been invited. You will be accepted. If you do not care to be accepted, that too is your freedom.

Heaven waits.

At least we have shut for some, the yawning jaws of hell.



I just gotta say something about this line, because it’s a perfect example of what you need to understand about slavemaster operations.

As Christ said, the innocent can first be saved. In a little time, in minutes, the child can be saved. But the rich and the mighty, the enslaver and destroyer would lag behind for years–but they too can be saved.

The very same enslavers and destroyers that he is working for! Not to mention the built-in excuse that if after years of scientology “treatment” you have not been cured of your urge to attack the slavemasters and their insane plans – well, thats because you are a “enslaver and destroyer” aka Suppressive Person – like I was declared by the Church in 2000.

This is why you need to re-accustom yourself to not needing “the right words” or the right “evidence” as your gauge to truth.

Pay attention, now…this is important.

Woman-Pointing-Her-Finger-now now.

Why do you think slavemasters are forever going on about “scientific evidence” anyway? Because they want you to be walking the “path of truth” or because they want to control your direction?

Again – like this:

I hoped to devise political actions which would boost aspirants of my choice into them, keep them there and channel them into paths leading to prosperity and security for both them and us.

...identifying potential leaders and guiding them to their rightful destiny, through democratic means if such were available but unhesitatingly by other means if they were not.

– Miles Copeland, The Game Player, p. 144 (Scientology and the MRA had been “officially” chosen by Miles in 1955)


The next thing we should at least briefly take up is the name given to this mailing (and to a series of evening lecture by Hubbard) – the Golden Dawn.

That is a direct reference to Alistair Crowley and the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn – a British nobility spawned religious front group from the previous generation of slavemasters.

They never have any new ideas, they just re-work the same old ones with each new generation.

It was designed for the very same purpose as Hubbard is now tasked to do with Scientology. Attracting in those rebellious and non-conforming types to both study them, mislead them (as Hubbard just tried to say he wasn’t doing) direct them and change their behavior into what the slavemasters want it to be.

My husband goes into the Golden Dawn extensively in his Chapter Twenty One – The First Scientologists and Their Masters as well as more briefly in his Chapter Seven – 3 Scientology Is Brothers of Light Religion

Excerpt from Chapter 7 –

L’Aurore Naissante is a Scottish Rite Freemason lodge that worked with the British slavemasters. [1800’s]

L’Aurore Naissante means the Rising Sun, the New Dawn.

Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn is a Brothers of Light sect. It had the grades of attainment from L’Aurore Naissante. Aleister Crowley was a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn. Aleister Crowley and Ron Hubbard were both British intelligence agents, and they were friends.

The purpose of the Golden Dawn was to evoke angels, gods, and goddesses, and elemental spirits, in order to purify and exalt the individual’s spiritual nature so as to unify it with the “Higher Genius.” From thence the members would be brought into the light of a new dawn.

Considering what Hubbard said in 1954 –

The goal of scientology is sufficient control over the aberrations of Man.

Scientology is the behavior science of the 20th century.

It is a movement toward a saner world…

– JOS (Journal of Scientology) issue 30g.


You can see this is just a re-worded reworking of the same propaganda that the Golden Dawn was founded upon – that whole “purifying” us of our bad ideas thing.

The next thing I’d like to take up briefly is the cross sprawled across the first page of this mailing.

golden dawn issue 1-0a p 1.

Caroline Letkeman correctly identifies this cross as quite similar to the one used by the Golden Dawn and by Crowley later on in his OTO (Ordo Templo Orientalis) days. Please remember, Crowley was a MI-6 agent.

Excerpt –

This is the “Rose Cross” shown on the back of Crowley’s Thoth tarot deck. Adopted by The Hermetic Order of The Golden Dawn (and later by Aleister Crowley), its origin is Rosicrucian. All dimensions, colors, etc. have special significance. The construction of the Scientology cross has definite similarity, although colors and dimensions differ. There are twelve green rays in the Rose Cross; whereas the corresponding rays in the Scientology cross are four in number. Note similar construction on each of the four arm ends.A description of the occult meaning of this cross can be found in The True and Invisible Rosicrucian Order, by Paul Foster Case. The Authentic Order of the Golden Dawn has further information on this cross. (Navigate to images.)

Another actual photo image I found of the Crowley Thoth deck –


This same type of “rose” symbolism  was also used by the Jewish Temple Emanu-El of New York, interestingly enough.


It dates back to the time of Francis Bacon, who was himself one of the Cecil bloc of slavemasters – these people aren’t really opposed to each other (Vatican slavemasters versus British slavemasters) as you might think. They simply have a lot of power-driven in fighting they engage in from time to time.

From my article Backdated Overpopulation Myths and the Forging of The Bible

At the bequest of Robert Cecil and Francis Bacon (who became the Imperator of the Rosicrucians) Fludd created several works. Several of them were specifically dedicated to James, including the first volume of his Utriusque cosmi of 1617, in which James is accorded the Hermetic epithet “Ter Maximus”, and saluted as “the most potent and wise prince in the world”.

It appears that Fludd was a deep-cover agent, on the surface he was a “devout Catholic” but yet he went on to become King James physician, something that Cecil would not have allowed unless he was using him somehow.

Here’s a beautiful example from the University of Delaware, of Fludd’s rendition of the symbol of the Rosicrucians – the “invisible college” – the rosy cross.

Fludd_-_rose_crossRobert Fludd, Clavis philosophiae et alcymiae Fluddanae. Francofurti: Guilhelmum Fitzerum, 1633


This same propaganda and basic symbolism just continued to be resurrected for the next four hundred years – going through the Golden Dawn in the 19th century and now scientology in the 20th century.


OK, now we’ll get into JOS issue 35G where Hubbard talks about his Religious Opinion Poll that he did after this Golden Dawn mailing went out.

religious opinion poll in phoenix aug 1954 Journal of Scientology Issue 35-G Here’s a PDF of the page.

Text –

This is a review of the Religious Opinion Poll as made in the first part of August, 1954 in Phoenix. One hundred sixty-one addresses were contacted: sixty of these were not at home, or did not answer; thirty-one wouldn’t answer at all, or got started and then stopped the interview; which leaves us with about seventy people actually answering the questions of the poll. The exact  figures are available; this is a summary.

A majority said they had received the Golden Dawn and half of those who had received it read it. The total of people reading the mailing piece was 15%. The majority of these believed that it told them what Scientology was. They believed that every person should have the right to speak freely his views and opinions of religion.

They believed overwhelmingly that religion is directly connected with everyday livingness; They were emphatic in believing that religion and superstition are not the same. They believed overwhelmingly that Man has a soul, and, oddly enough, a considerable majority believed that Man is his soul. Almost all believed that Man’s soul can be saved. A considerable majority had studied religion and religious doctrines. Only six of the fifty believed there was no use in continuing a search for the soul. The majority believed a person had a right to his own life. A larger majority believed each person had a right to his own sanity, and an overwhelming majority believed that men had a right to their own ideas and their own goals. A vast majority believed that the Creed of the Church of Scientology, as given in the Golden Dawn, Issue l-OA was acceptable.

A very small majority believed that religion should not be used to control people, which means that something, less than half did believe that religion should be used·to control people. A very heavy majority believed that religion should be used to set Man free. An overwhelming majority believed that people should be open minded about religion. Almost as large a majority believed that a religious organization should make public its findings concerning Man’s soul. A considerable minority believed that all one had to do was have faith in order to solve his problems, while the majority believed that one had to have more than faith. An overwhelming majority believed in “a higher goal for Man.” A slight but distinct majority believed that Man only lives one life which means that almost as great a number believed that Man lived more than one life. In other words, almost, but not quite, fifty percent of those answering the poll believed that an individual lived several lives.

Fifty believed that God was all-powerful. None would say that He was not, and only one said that he didn’t know. A majority believed that a child should have the right to select his own religion. An overwhelming majority believed that Man had to suffer for his misdeeds.

The people were equally divided as to whether or not Man was basically sinful. A larger majority believed that a person could be truly religious without attending church. Thirty-six believed that there was going to be a Judgement Day. Five believed there was going to be no Judgement Day, and ten said they didn’t know. A startling majority said they believed the world was going to end. An overwhelming majority believed that a person had the right to leave his church and join another which offered more for his soul, and on the subject of what a minister should do professionally, an overwhelming majority believed that he should teach his Doctrines, that he should heal the suffering, that he should convert others to his Doctrines, and that he should follow in the footsteps of Christ.

Remembering that thirty-one people out of this hundred and sixty-one, when talked to-would not answer questions or stopped the interview, which is to say about one-third, and that these included all the Catholics contacted, who said they would not be able to read the Golden Dawn unless told they could do so by their priest; and remembering that this is a relatively small poll conducted in a country which has lots of space, and therefore greater freedom, we still find some very interesting data in this poll.

We find immediately that the Doctrines of Scientology are far from unacceptable to the general public. We find the majority believing that Man is his soul, and everyone believing that Man has a soul, except two lonely people who didn’t know, and we find these people easily separating the idea of going to church from the idea of being religious. We find them overwhelmingly in favor of religious freedom and we find that they believe that men should have a right to their own lives, their own sanity, their own goals, and in other words believe completely in self-determinism. They believe completely that a religious organization should make public its findings about the soul, and their general attitude toward religion is a sane and acceptable one which finds nothing wrong with religion or religious practices.

The most important thing about this poll is that the public concept of a minister, as to what his duties should be, do not fit the activities of the current Protestant and Catholic ministry. These people were of one accord in believing that a minister should teach his Doctrines, that he should heal the suffering, that he should follow in the footsteps of Christ. In other words, these people do look to the ministry to heal the suffering, even more than they look to other fields.

And then when we examine the New Testament we discover that Christ, to make a generalized statement, simply went out and healed and taught people to heal, and told people that they could be immortal, and it is this aspect of Christ, simply as described here, which has evidently brought him forward over two thousand years of rather definite misbehaviour on the part of religious organizations.

After a very careful examination of this poll, one would say very bluntly: Scientology fills the need of the people for a religion, which need is not, at this time being filled, since the general popular description of what a religion should be fits Scientology, and does not fit the existing churches, or the existing ministry, and that the public at large expects the minister to do exactly what a Scientologist would do, and therefore must be somewhat surprised when the ministry does not do—as it does not do—what a Scientologist can do.

Pending further polls on results in Operation Phoenix, one would tend to draw an early conclusion that people are sitting there waiting for a religion, and don’t, at the moment, have one, and will not have one unless we get busy.


And so…the religion of scientology gets created.


I’m sure for those well-versed in scientology you can see many elements taken from this survey and entire sections of scientology built around them.

Hubbard dropped the mailings because he “had the information” that he wanted.

During the talk, Ron also revealed that the portion of Operation Phoenix which originally called for continuous mailings to a select list was being abandoned, since the response from The GOLDEN DAWN had given him the information he wanted.

Now, where, do you suppose, and when, would be the official launching of the behavior modification front group – the scientology religion – upon the world?

Right exactly when Miles Copeland got back in July 1955 and took control of the “Political Action” committee, and right exactly where Miles was – Washington D.C. area.

In closing…


In our CIA document reading library, I examined a document in this post.

One section is talking about one of the CIA operatives, Dennett, and how his plane crash death was suspicious.

Per Feuer, Alan (2007-10-23), “A Dead Spy, a Daughter’s Questions and the C.I.A”, New York Times, his daughter began investigating his background, and was running into roadblocks from the CIA in handing over documents to her.

…Requests for information were filed and then denied. Six years passed in the back-and-forth. In 2005, with what she said was reluctance, Ms. Dennett sued the C.I.A. to obtain the entirety of her father’s secret file.

Within a year, Judge J. Garvan Murtha of Federal District Court in Brattleboro ruled against her, quoting the C.I.A.’s information review officer who said, in papers, that the agency had withheld the file to “prevent disclosure of intelligence methods” — even 60 years after the fact.

In a weird convergence, the decision against Ms. Dennett actually cited a Church of Scientology Vs. the NSA case. [Founding Church of Scientology v National Security Agency, 610 F.2d 824,836 (D.C. Cir 1979)  ]  I have always suspected that particular case was a show case utilizing CIA pet dog Scientology in order to block access to CIA documents under the FOIA.

You can see documents from Dennett’s case here.

On January 9, 2015, through the MuckRock website R.M. Seibert also tried to gain access to CIA documents re Hubbard and the Founding Church etc. but received simply copies of files concerning the FOIA court cases like the one mentioned above.

This is what she got back – a PDF of “responsive documents from the CIA. Some “we found nothing” documents, some news articles that are public knowledge anyway.



Note the careful wording in the first document –

CIA doc foia request muckrock hubbard

1. We have checked OLC’s limited indices, as well as the indices of the Review Staff material supplied to the House and Senate during their investigations of CIA, with negative results concerning the Founding Church of Scientology and its affiliated religious organizations.

Tricky, tricky, tricky…


For a number of reasons, starting with that word “supplied”. What they gave the Senate is not indicative of the truth of either what they had or what they had destroyed plus the fact that they still had people around that knew about things. Understand?

It’s also about whatever they chose to give to the investigations. Plain and simple. These indices are certainly not going to contain the list of whoever they used as their agents for their operations, civilian or otherwise. Those would be more for people they were watching or investigating, an important distinction.

The last documents in the PDF are excerpting one of the court case FOIA requests by scientologists in the Guardian’s office and show that what they were asking for were things like surveilling or watching Hubbard. They were asking for documentation that the CIA was going after Hubbard and scientology.

Now, how tricky (and off) is that?


They never asked if Hubbard worked for them.


Something so simple that a child…

wednesday-addams dinosaur.

Never mind.

But, if someone did try to ask for their files about Hubbard as an agent? They would probably still get back the same response Miss Dennett did about her father – Denied. Even though her father was otherwise documentable as an OSS agent and whose files should have logically transferred to the CIA (which had been basically formed out of it).



Miss Dennett was cited National Security as the reason, which is what had been successfully cited in the scientology vs. NSA, and the scientology vs. CIA late 1970’s law suits.

These people are not in a hurry to make it be known what Hubbard was really doing, in other words.It’s too damaging even now.

Besides the really, really ugly insights everyone would now have into a lot more than just scientology, it would also upset all that lovely off-book tax-exempt money, don’t forget.

From the still running operation

(now headed by David Miscavige.)

What’s interesting about all this is that now we know why FOIA requests for CIA or OSS records about Ron Hubbard are denied to be released or “don’t exist”.

From their perspective, what if the world knew the truth about Hubbard and Scientology?

Well, now you do.
