Scientology Crime Syndicate

Co$ Public Relations says:

(h) In or about early October, 1997, in violation of the Order, Armstrong voluntarily and willingly participated in a videotaped interview during which he violated the terms of the above referenced Judgment. Armstrong was informed prior to the interview that it was being recorded for broadcast on British television. See Wilson declaration, Exhibit C.


Gerry said:

It's actually Wilson's Exhibit L, a purported, and I think poor, transcript of the "Secret Lives of L. Ron Hubbard" documentary.

Here's what Wilson says I said:




Excalibur became the secret text of Scientology. Hubbard said it was too dangerous to publish.

But 40 years later, a treasure trove from Hubbard's early journals and manuscripts, believed to have been long lost, was discovered by his staff.

GERRY ARMSTRONG: There were two and a half versions of Excalibur. I read them and I didn't go mad, and didn't die.

They also include the information within related writings that these came out of a nitrous oxide incident. Hubbard had a couple of teeth extracted and it was while under the effect of nitrous oxide that he came up with Excalibur.

NARRATOR: Hubbard's death was in fact an hallucination under the effects of anesthetic, so what was the intellectual dish he fed on?

GERRY ARMSTRONG: It's not particularly revolutionary. The key to Excalibur was this great realization by Hubbard of survive as being the one command that all existence and all life and all people have that became the basis for a lot of dianetics, and a lot of scientology.



His flagship was a 3,000 ton converted cattle ferry. On board, Hubbard had a personal guard called the Commodores Messengers.

GERRY ARMSTRONG: They took care of everything for him. They dressed him. They got him ready for bed. They lit his cigarettes. They held his ashtray.


NARRATOR: On one occasion, Gerry Armstrong, who'd been sent on a shore errand, was visited by one of Hubbard's messengers.

GERRY ARMSTRONG: This was Terri, who was later to be my wife, and she came to me where I was working and she said the Commodore wants to know, is it true that you went to the US Embassy and applied for 30 some odd visas, and I said yes, Sir, because that's how you respond to the messenger. And her next message was, the Commodore says you're a fucking asshole.


GERRY ARMSTRONG: People were in awe of him, and people were frightened of him. He was the boss, he was the dictator. He could order anyone to do anything on board. He was ruthless. He could at times be, at times, charming, but he could also be very belligerent, and he could be very uncaring and cruel.


GERRY ARMSTRONG: He had phobias about dust, he had phobias about smells. He had phobias about sounds, as though he would hear sounds that weren't there, and he would scream at the sound technician. And he would see things that weren't there and he would scream at the people who were framing the shot. And he would smell smells that weren't there, and he'd have people rinse his clothing some 13 or 15 or however many times.
