DATE CONVENTIONS IN THE TIME LINE

It has been impossible to get exact dates for some of the events
listed herein. If the event seemed important enough to include, yet no
exact day--or, in some cases, no month--was given, the indication "c."
(for circa) has been put AFTER the information (day or month) in
question.
    As an example, an event known to have occurred in June of 1974, but
without certainty as to the actual day, might be listed as "Saturday, 1
c. June 1974." If only a month and year are known (as in the example
just given), and there is no indication of, e.g., "late June," then the
event has usually been assigned arbitrarily to the 1st or the 15th of
the indicated month, unless surrounding events indicate a different,
more likely day of the month. The weekday names (e.g. Monday, Tuesday,
etc.) have been included as additional data.
    If the only indication of the time of the event was "mid-1974,"
then the entry might read "Saturday, 1 c. June c. 1974, indicating that
the month, too, is estimated from the language of the referenced source.
Only rarely have incidents been included where the only information
available is a givien year. When it seemed important enough to include
in the Time Line, it was put, usually, at 1 c. January c. of the given
year, or at 1 c. July c. of the given year, whichever seemed most
likely--mainly as a "bookmark" for the event, pending more exact dating.
Every effort has been made to isolate, as closely as possible, the
exact date for each event. If anyone has any more accurate information
about any event described herein, please post it to the newsgroup,
"alt.religion.scientology."

President Nixon tells the Senate Watergate Committee that he will not
comply with new subpoenas calling for him to surrender hundreds of tapes
and documents. In a letter to Chairman Sam Ervin, Nixon says, "To
produce the material you now see would unquestionably destroy any
vestige of confidentiality of Presidential communications, thereby
irreparably impairing the constitutional functions of the office of the
Presidency." On the same day, William B. Saxbe is sworn in as US
Attorney General. Nixon's attorney J. Fred Buzhardt, Jr., is named White
House counsel, and James D. St. Clair is hired by Nixon to replace
Buzhardt as special counsel to the President in charge of his Watergate
defense.

Flag Order 3434 is issued, creating the Rehabilitation Project Force
(RPF). The Flag Order is written by Ken Urquhart, not by LRH, but refers
to "The Commodore" having created the RPF. (?) [NOTE: Ken Urquhart,
along with Jim Dincalci and Paul Preston, is one of the handful of key
players in the "flight to America" scenario played out with LRH in early
December 1972 (see entry for 3 December 1972), after threats of an
indictment from Paris.]
OUTPOINTS: WRONG SOURCE, CONTRARY FACTS. It should be noted here that
the RPF is, at its roots and concept, 180-degrees oppossed to everything
that LRH had been saying and writing for twenty-four years prior to its
creation. It is one of the most insidious control operations ever run on
individuals. In fact, it employs much of the kind of degradation of
individuals that has been developed by psychiatrists working for the CIA
since 1953 in Operations BLUEBIRD and MKULTRA. It stands as a continuing
testement to the extreme liklihood that, no matter what so-called
"evidence" exists to the contrary, LRH was dead or mentally
incapacitated by the time it was implemented.

First Board Policy Letter (BPL) establishing those types of issues, and
establishing Board Technical Bulletins (BTBs).
OUTPOINTS: WRONG SOURCE. It should be noted that BTBs and BPLs, created
just 10 days after the creation of the RPF, introduced the greatest
possible confusion into all of Scientology, creating a dispersal of
source that persists to this day, and paved the way for SPDs, for "Based
on the Works of..." texts, and for the alteration of LRH's bulletins,
policy letters, tapes, and books. These two events mark the watershed of
Scientology and Dianetics, sending it on a decline into a totalitarian
and suppressive organization using the technology LRH created as
harmfully as possible

A new CIA program, jointly funded by Office of Research and Development
(ORD) and Office of Technical Services (OTS) is begun at SRI.
Apparently, Kenneth Kress is the author of the program (he refers to
himself as "the Project Officer," but CIA officials seem to use the
terms "project" and "program" almost interchangeably). The project is to
proceed on the premise that the phenomena associated with remote viewing
do exist; the objective is to develop and utilize them. CITE: "Office of

Hal Puthoff is contacted by the Berkely police, requesting psychic
assistance in the investigation into the disappearance of Patty Hearst.
That afternoon, Puthoff and Pat Price meet with the police at Patty
Hearst's apartment, where Price says it is not a kidnapping for money,
but for political reasons. They go down to the police station, where
Price picks out three photos from mug books, and associates the word
"Lobo" (spanish for "wolf") with one of the men he has selected. (All
three men Price picks are later confirmed to be members of the
"Symbionese Liberation Army," which has kidnapped Hearst. The man with
the "lobo" association turns out to be William Wolfe, a.k.a. "Willie the
Wolf.")

Dr. Jose Delgado testifies before Congress: "We need a program of
psychosurgery for political control of our society. The purpose is
physical control of the mind. Everyone who deviates from the given norm
can be surgically mutilated. The individual may think that the most
important reality is his own existence, but this is only his personal
point of view. This lacks historical perspective. Man does not have the
right to develop his own mind. This kind of liberal orientation has
great appeal. We must electrically control the brain. Some day armies
and generals will be controlled by electric stimulation of the brain."

The Apollo's liaison office in New York ostensibly writes to the Navy
Department enclosing an authorization from LRH to obtain his medals and
asking for them to be forwarded as soon as possible. The letter provides
some background data: "He served in the South Pacific and in 1942 was
relieved by fifteen officers of rank and was rushed home to take part in
the 1942 battle against German submarines as Commanding Officer of a
Corvette serving in the North Atlantic. In 1943 he was made Commodore of
corvette squadrons and in 1944 he worked with amphibious forces.' There
follows a list of seventeen medals awarded to LRH, including the Purple
Heart and the Navy Commendation Medal, many of them with bronze stars.
OUTPOINTS: SMOKING GUN, CONTRARY FACTS: This account in "Bare-Faced
Messiah" is a "bare-faced" contradiction to another assertion from the
same source, in Chapter 17, that a fidgety "LRH" had "his sixteen war
medals" on display during a 1968 interview [see entry for 6 August 1968]

parallels of buggings, break-ins, etc., are followed by the aides being
indicted and convicted, and the top man being named an "unindicted
co-conspirator." Join the Church of Coincidenceology today!

Office of the FBI, in which the Founding Church of Scientology of
Washington, D.C., Inc., is suing the Director [of the FBI], the Attorney
General, and the Secretary of the Treasury for information in government
files which the Church contends have been wrongly disseminated.
OUTPOINTS: OMITTED DATA: No ruling or record of this suit has yet been
found. No specific mention of this suit is made in the Stipulation of

appended to the end of a letter from FBI Director Clarence Kelley.

Kendrick "Rick" Moxon begins working in the D.C. GO in some capacity,
unknown. NOTE: This date is arrived at by working back approximately two
years from when Meisner left D.C., because Meisner later testified that
he had "worked closely" with Moxon "for two years."
OUTPOINTS: OMITTED MOXON: Over the next two years, while Moxon and
Meisner work "closely" together, while Meisner allegedly commits
burglary after burglary on behalf of the GO--as is exhaustively detailed
in the Stipulation of Evidence--we will find NOTHING about or from
Kendrick Moxon throughout the entire Stipulation until AFTER Meisner has
been confronted by the FBI, in June of 1976, and has fled to L.A.
Moxon's name is never even mentioned, and doesn't appear on a single
document in all the government's mile-high stacks for the two-odd years
covering the actual break-ins, etc. Yet, according to Meisner's
testimony, as quoted in the Stipulation, he and Moxon "worked closely
for two years." And the two years that the burglaries were being
committed are the only two years this can refer to. How odd.

The Apollo pulls into port at Funchal, Madeira. Jim Dincalci (at some

office." His very odd statement is: "It seemed to be common knowledge in
Madeira that the ship was not what it was supposed to be and most people
seemed to think it was a CIA spy ship. I had made friends on the island
and had contacts in local Communist cells. The word was that the
Communists were out to get the ship next time she arrived in Madeira. I
sent telexes to LRH warning him what was happening and advising him not
come to Madeira until things had calmed down. I was absolutely shocked
to see the ship come into the harbor."

Friday, 18 c. October 1974
When the Apollo is eight miles off Charleston, South Carolina, a coded
radio message from "the Guardian's Office" (WHO?!) warns the Commodore
that the FBI are waiting on the dock to meet the ship. According to Hana
Eltringham, Mary Sue is "adamant that we should not go ashore. She said
he (LRH) would be indicted ten or fifteen times and it would be the end
of him and she wasn't going have it." LRH calls his senior aides
together and says he is going to send a signal to Charleston to say that
the ship is heading north to pick up spare parts in Halifax, Nova
Scotia. Instead, they are going to sail south, to the Caribbean.
OUTPOINTS: OMITTED FACTS, CONTRARY FACTS: WHO in the Guardian's Office
did the message come from? HOW did they know FBI agents were
congregating at Charleston? HOW did the FBI know that the Apollo was
headed for Charleston? And, mainly, WHY would LRH be "indicted ten or
fifteen times"? This is absurd; there are no known outstanding warrants
or pending indictments against him. In fact, just about a year earlier,
he had been in the United States for the infamous "missing ten months,"
and had returned to the Apollo at Lisbon after he had received word that
it was fine for him to return. (WHY is there an "up?" WHO made the

Guardian Order 1361 is issued. According to Michael Meisner and Kathryn

verification for this is Kathryn Hirsch's identification of initials on
page ten as being those of Lexie Ramirez, Jane Kember's secretary.
Meisner claims that certain targets (target number 10, 16 and 17), were
specifically assigned to him to carry out in the District of Columbia.
Those targets say:
    "10. Immediately get an agent into DC IRS to obtain files on LRH,
Scientology, etc. in the Chief Council's [sic] office, the Special
Services staff, the intelligence division, Audit Division, and any other
areas." [NOTE: Gerald Wolfe has ALREADY been sent to DC for this express
purpose! See OUTPOINTS, below.--Ed.]
    "16. Collect data on the Justice Dept. Tax Division for the org
board, the current terminals, and the people handling Scicntology.
    "17. When the correct areas are isolated, infiltrate and get the
files."
OUTPOINTS: ALTERED SEQUENCE, INCORRECTLY INCLUDED STUPIDITY: Why, oh,

Wolfe has already been selected to infiltrate IRS, and has already been

Mitchell Hermann enters the main IRS building in the morning, goes to
the fourth-floor conference room where the meeting on Scientology is to
be held, and places the bugging device (FM transmitter) in a wall
socket. The room faces the driveway of the Smithsonian Institution
Museum of History and Technology on Constitution Avenue Northwest.
Hermann leaves the building and waits in a car in the driveway of the
mueseum with Don Alverzo and Carla Moxon (Assistant Guardian
Communicator DC) and overhears and tapes the entire meeting over the FM
radio of the car.
    Lewis Hubbard, employed by the Office of the Chief Counsel of IRS,
attends the meeting (which is being bugged by the GO) in the Chief
Counsel's conference room. Numerous other high officials of the IRS
attend this meeting to disscuss "pending legal actions" involving the
various churches Of Scientology, and to establish general guidelines for
determination on what constitutes a "religious institution" entitled to
tax exemption under the Internal Revenue Code. Lewis Hubbard, at the
request of the Chief Counsel, has prepared a lengthy pre-conference
memorandum in order to brief all attendees regarding the topics to be
discussed. (He later prepares a post-conference memorandum outlining the
matters discussed at the conference.) Barbara Bird, an attorney in
Refund Litigation Service, also attends the conference. [NOTE: Does
Meade Emory attend the conference?]
    Following the meeting, Hermann re-enters the building, removes the
bug, and takes various papers, including the agenda for the meeting,
which had been left by the participants. In the evening, Hermann meets
with Meisner and describes what had taken place. (Because of other
"pressing business," Meisner hadn't gone with them to the bugging. Does
that mean he had to take his suit to the cleaners?)
OUTPOINTS: INCORRECTLY INCLUDED MOXON, OMITTED MOXON: Why does A/G DC
Lynn McNeil send her COMMUNICATOR, Carla Moxon, fer-chrissake, on this
outing??? And where the heck is Kendrick Moxon. Oh, yeah; that's
right--he is Mr. See-Nothing, Hear-Nothing, Say-Nothing, Know-Nothing.
Maybe he was having a breakfast melon with Meade Emory.

DG Info US Duke Snider sends a letter entitled "Re: IRS Top Planning

on the upper portion of the first page, a copy is also sent to CSG Mary
Sue Hubbard. The letter says "[t]oday we gained access to the top level
IRS planning conference on what to do about Scientology. This was done
electronically so we don't know exactly who was present but we have a
fair estimate. Legal had told us several weeks ago that there was to be
a big IRS Pow Wow on what to do about us on 1 Nov... ." The letter
says that the meeting was held in IRS Chief Counsel's conference room,
and that he "will probably be able to got more data as to who attended
when our missionaire [Don Alverzo] gets back from DC. All the data we
have at present came by phone."

A telex is purportedly sent from AGI DC Michael Meisner to DGI US Duke
Snider, via DG US Henning Heldt stating that Gerald Wolfe, the "FSM,"
has apparently passed the hiring freeze and that they "will know for
sure" whether he has received employment "by November 18 at the latest"
(see OUTPOINTS, below). A notation on the telex indicates that it is
received on "11.11.74" at "2000" hours (8:00 p.m.).
OUTPOINTS: OMITTED INSIDE HELP, OMITTED DATA, CONTRARY FACTS: How did
Wolfe get past a hiring freeze? Inside help? There is no explanation for
this. Another oddity: November 18 is the EXACT DATE that Wolfe is
actually hired, according to this same Stipulation of Evidence. This
would have required supernatural powers of prescience by Meisner. (This
is not the only place in the Stipulation where someone exhibits uncanny
powers of prediction; see entries for 21 June, 23 June, and 3 July 1977
to learn of other mental magic! It's almost as though somebody created
some of this stuff AFTER the fact. Nahhhh.) But, for contrary facts, see
also the 14 November 1974 entry: a telex purportedly stating that Wolfe
has "accepted employment" at IRS. Very odd, considering he wasn't hired
until 18 November. Are we confused yet? Well, it's not for want of
somebody trying. Very trying.

Willardson, Information Branch I Director U.S., regarding the "IRS
evaluation" GO 1361, Target 10, and directing Willardson "to get this

10 is: "10. Immediately get an agent into DC IRS to obtain files on LRH,
Scientology, etc. in the Chief Council's [sic] office, the Special
Services staff, the intelligence division, Audit Division, and any other
areas.")

A telex is purportedly sent by DGI US Duke Snider to DGI WW Mo Budlong,
"Re: GO 1361 Tar [target] 10," saying that despite the national hiring
freeze, defendant Gerald Wolfe has "accepted employment" at the IRS.
OUTPOINTS: CONTRARY FACTS, ALTERED IMPORTANCE, ALTERED SEQUENCE: This is
odd, because the same Stipulation of Evidence elsewhere says that Gerald
Wolfe got hired at IRS on 18 November1974 [see], not 14 November. One of
these "facts," or both, must be false. The language of the Stipulation
is also odd: it says Wolfe "accepted employment," as though it were
offered to him, yet there is purportedly a hiring freeze at IRS. It
seems that it should say Wolfe "was accepted for employment," rather
than the other way around. A further oddity is that a hiring freeze was
violated to take Wolfe on--not as some high-powered specialist who would
warrant violating the freeze, but as a clerk typist!

Friday, 15 c. November 1974
The referenced source weaves the following tale, as quoted, and begins
by quoting Kima Douglas: "'While we were in the Bahamas, a story came
out that the Swiss were going to change the tax laws in some way that
would affect the money we held there. The old man went crazy. I heard
him screaming and yelling and ran upstairs to find what was wrong. He
was pacing up and down and shouting at the top of his voice, "Do you
know what they're doing? Everything's gone. Gone! Gone! We're going to
lose everything."' When he had calmed down a little, Kima suggested that
perhaps the money should be moved. Three hours later, she was on a
plane to Zurich, with two other Scientologists (WHO?), carrying
handwritten instructions from Hubbard authorizing the transfer of all
his assets to a bank in Liechtenstein. When they arrived, they were
taken down into the vault of the bank and shown the money. Kima Douglas,
who thought she could no longer be surprised by anything in
Scientology, was awestruck. 'Everyone's eyes widened. There was a stack,
about four feet high and three feet wide, of dollars, marks and Swiss
francs in high-denomination notes. I couldn't begin to guess how much
was there, but it was certainly more than the three of us could carry.'
It took nearly two weeks to make arrangements to move the cash to a bank
in Liechtenstein and then the serial numbers--the first and last note of
each bundle--had to be noted. When the mission returned to the Bahamas,
Kima had to describe to the Commodore the exact size of the various
piles of money. 'He was very pleased,' she said. 'He thought he'd
outdone the Swiss.'" NOTE: The date of this entry is estimated only,
based on the fact that Douglas says it was while they were "in the
Bahamas," and it is estimated that they were in the Bahamas at around
this time [see entries for 16, 18, and 20 October 1974].
OUTPOINTS: CONTRARY FACTS, ALTERED SEQUENCE: What "tax laws" are being
changed by the Swiss? The only thing that can be found that might have
anything to do with this alleged incident is a 25 May 1973 [see] treaty
between Switzerland and the US. But that is nearly a year and a half
before the ship and crew are "in the Bahamas."

Michael Meisner and Mitchell Hermann allegedly enter the IRS building
and remain inside until sometime after 7:00 p.m. They then allegedly
enter offices of the Exempt Organization Division on the seventh floor,
remove from the building one file relating to Scientology, and take it
to the Guardian's Office and photocopy it. The purpose is to show Gerald
Wolfe that documents can easily be taken from IRS offices. Meisner then
allegedly calls Duke Snider in Los Angeles and tells him what he and
Hermann have accomplished, what documents have been stolen. He tells
Snider that this "proves conclusively" the "ease with which documents
can be taken from the IRS."
OUTPOINTS: DROPPED OUT TIME, CONTRARY FACTS, OMITTED DATA, ADDED
FALSEHOODS: No exact date for this incident; just "During the first week
of December 1974." The date almost HAS to be 2 December, which is a
Monday. It can't be 1 December, which is a Sunday, and by Wednesday, 4
December, copies of whatever were taken are allegedly already in Los
Angeles! If it was so easy for them to get documents, why did they need
Wolfe employed there? Also, the entry for 4 December 1974 [see] says
Wolfe was with them on this trip; this account of the event names only
Meisner and Hermann as going. But here is the REAL question: WHY would
the GO alllow such a STUPID illegal operation to go on when they have
JUST filed suit against the COMMISSIONER of the IRS and the SECRETARY OF
THE TREASURY less than a week earlier [see entry for 26 November], and
have JUST ARGUED THE CASE IN COURT ON THIS VERY SAME DAY [see other
entry for 2 December]? Such a stupid, stupid move would run a HIGH risk
of jeopardizing ANY hope for the case to win on its merits. And WHY
doesn't the Stipulation mention this suit against the Commissioner of
IRS at all?

Stipulation of Evidence doesn't say ANYTHING about HOW Hermann did this;

according to the 4 December 1974 entry [see], he had to stroll in with a
file that was at LEAST TEN INCHES THICK!

telex informs Budlong that Snider has received "two shipments from
DC...about ten inches" thick containing documents which Mitchell
Hermann, Gerald Wolfe and Michael Meisner have stolen from the IRS.
OUTPOINTS: CONTRARY FACTS: The Stipulation of Evidence says only Hermann
and Meisner--not Wolfe--had entered the IRS building, and they had only
taken "one file" [see entry for 2 December 1974]. That file, then, had
to have been AT LEAST TEN INCHES THICK--MAYBE EVEN TWENTY! This means
that on 3 December, Hermann had to just stroll back into the IRS
building with a file TEN INCHES THICK, and unobtrusively put it back
into the file from which it had been stolen! Right!

Subject: SRI Experiment; 12 December 1974 (SECRET)." [NOTE:This
memorandum is concerning a test of remote viewing set up with Pat Price
at Stanford Research Institute (SRI). Having been given operational data
such as exterior photographs and geographical coordinates, Price has
"visited" two foreign embassies--known to CIA audio teams who had made
entries several years previously--by his remote viewing capability, has
located the coderooms, and has come up with information to allow a
member of the CIA team to determine whether Price is likely to be of
operational use in subsequent operations. In both cases, Price has
correctly located the coderooms. He has produced copious data, such as
the location of interior doors and colors of marble stairs and
fireplaces that are accurate and specific. In this document, the
operations officer involved concludes, "It is my considered opinion that
this technique--whatever it is--offers definite operational
possibilities."]

Mitchell Hermann is going on vacation, and Meisner is "taking over
supervision" of Gerald Wolfe. Hermann arranges for Meisner to meet Wolfe
in an Arlington, Virginia, parking lot and bring him over to Hermann's
house on Fessenden Street, Northwest, to coordinate. Meisner "introduces
himself (sic--see Outpoints below) to Wolfe" using his real name; Wolfe
feels more comfortable being called "Kelly." During the half-hour
meeting at Hermann's house, Meisner and Wolfe discuss Wolfe's job and
backgound. Wolfe is told that he can call Meisner any time at his office
at 2125 S Street, Northwest, or at his home in Arlington. Hermann
instructs Wolfe to "continue" (sic--see OUTPOINTS, below) obtaining all
documnets related to Scientology from the IRS office of Barbara Bird, an
attorney in Refund Litigation Service.
OUTPOINTS: ADDED INAPPLICABLE DATA, CONTRARY FACTS: There is NO previous
indication of Wolfe having taken ANYTHING from Bird's office. Also, what
about Meisner's 2 December escapade to "show Wolfe" how "easy" it is to

The New York Times publishes the first of a series of articles by
Seymour M. Hersh which relies on leaked reports of CIA activities
assembled by former Director James Schlesinger to expose alleged
misdeeds by the agency. It is "widely recognized" that the Hersh
articles are a self-exposure by the CIA that is designed to set the
agenda for the Ford-appointed Rockefeller Commission, which is set up
on 4 January 1975 [see]. DCI William Colby phones President Ford, who is
vacationing in Vail, Colorado, and tells him that Hersh has distorted
the record, and that the "excesses" of the CIA had all ended in
1973--following Helms's departure.
OUTPOINTS: CONTRARY FACTS: Although it is claimed here, and is likely,
that the Hersh articles are a CIA self-purging--or controlled bleeding,
if you like--getting the jump on the Rockefeller Commission, the entry
for 3 January 1974 [see] makes the claim that President Ford decides on
putting together the Rockefeller Commission on that date, just one day
before the Commission is set up, as a RESULT of the Hersh revelations.

DCI William Colby takes a report, in the form of a six-page letter with
nine annexes totaling another fifty-eight pages, to the White House for
Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to read. Colby has concluded it would
be better to confess everything at once (except the CIA's assassination
plotting), and he has written his letter to Ford, with its fifty-eight
pages of annexes, as a document which might be released directly to the
press. Colby feels the CIA's misdeeds belong in a category of "bad
secrets," which will haunt the Agency until they are revealed for the
relatively paltry wrongs he conceives them to be. Letting out the "bad
secrets," he feels, will protect the "good secrets." He also brings "The
Family Jewels" with him that evening, and the Secretary of State flips
quickly through its 693 pages of misdeeds until he comes to the subject
of assassinations. There he slows down and reads carefully. "Well,
Bill," he says, according to Colby, "when Hersh's story first came out,
I thought you should have flatly denied it as totally wrong, but now I
see why you couldn't."

A memorandum from Michael Meisiner to Cindy Rayrmond entitled "Raw Data
Report Re: IRS-Charlotte Murphy Scientology File." It summarizes
documents taken by Gerald Wolfe from the offices of Barbara Bird at the
IRS. Meisner appends at least ninety-eight pages of documents taken from
the IRS. The routing portion which appears in the upper left-hand side
of the memorandum reflects that the "AG Info DC", Michael Meisner, sends
the memorandum to the Collection Officer US, Cindy Raymond, via the
Assistant Guardian for the District of Columbia, Lynn McNeil, who
initials it on "30/12" (30 December 1974). McNeil's notation shows that
she reviewes it on that day and transmits it to the Deputy Guardian
Communicator for the United States and the Deputy Guardian for the
United States--Henning Heldt.

Tuesday, 31 c. December 1974
Henry Kissinger takes DCI William Colby's report, but not the complete
"Family Jewels," to Vail and briefs President Gerald Ford. Kissenger and
Ford emphatically do not agree with Colby's idea to release all of the
information in the report--except for the assissination plots--to the
press and public.
