Malfoy walks in on Harry in the showers after Quidditch and is surprisingly flustered. Spying the chance to embarrass him, Harry teases him at every opportunity to bring that blush back.

The Largest Infiltration of the US Government in History —- Operation Snow White

Spies have had their place in history ever since the beginning of city states, kingdoms, and empires, providing important intelligence about an adversary and enemy.  Perhaps the golden age of spying occurred during the Cold War, where American and Soviet spies seemed to be behind every corner, listening in to every conversation and collecting every scrap of data that could be found.  So it would be no surprise to learn that the largest infiltration of the United States Government occurred in the 1970’s.  However, the source of the infiltration was not from the Soviet Union or any of the other communist bloc countries of the Cold War.  Rather, the infiltration came from a most unexpected and unusual source; The Church of Scientology.

Formed in 1954 by science fiction writer L. Ron Hubbard, the Church of Scientology had been under the suspicion of governments throughout the 1960’s and 70’s.  The church was especially under close scrutiny by the US Government, who suspected the church was a cult which brainwashed and manipulated it members, and suspected the organization of tax fraud.  In the late 1960’s a plan called “Operation Snow White” was drawn up by L. Ron’s wife, Mary Sue Hubbard, 2nd in command and head of the Guardian Office.  The Guardian Office was a section of the church devoted to protecting the interests of the Scientology, especially against journalists, critics, and anyone who spoke out against the religion.  Organized and planned by the Guardian Office, Operation Snow White called for the infiltration of various agencies in the US Government.  Scientology members were to get jobs within these agencies, then use their positions to steal any government documents which portrayed the Church of Scientology in a negative light and to plant false information.  Between 1973 and 1977, covert agents managed to infiltrate 136 government agencies, among them; the FBI, CIA, IRS, FDA, DEA, Coast Guard Intelligence, the Department of Justice, the Treasury Department, dozens of US Embassies, the American Medical Association, and the National Institute of Mental Health.  In addition, they infiltrated foreign governments such as Canada and the UK, infiltrated numerous private agencies, and infiltrated other law enforcement agencies such as the LAPD, NYPD, Washington D.C. Police Department, and INTERPOL.

By 1977, the Church of Scientology had one of the largest spy networks across the globe, with around 5,000 secret agents infiltrating organizations across 30 countries.  It was in that year that everything fell apart.   It started when two agents, Gerald Wolfe and Michael Meisner were arrested in Justice Department offices with fake ID’s.  The two tried cover story after cover story, but eventually spilled everything and turned state’s evidence for a plea bargain.  On July 8th, 1977 the FBI raided Scientology centers in LA, Hollywood, and New York City.  The Los Angeles raid alone lasted 21 hours and resulted in the filling of a 16 ton truck with documents and other evidence.  The investigation revealed that the Church of Scientology had stolen 90,000 confidential documents, had wiretapped government officials on a number of occasions, and exposed almost all of the 5,000 agents that made up Scientology’s spy network.  The investigation also revealed another program called “Operation Freakout”, a plan to frame journalist Paulette Cooper, who was critical of the church, with making false bomb threats in the hope of having her imprisoned or committed to a mental institution.  

By 1978, the Scientology spy network had been completely dismantled.  Mary Sue Hubbard and 11 other high ranking members of the Church of Scientology were indicted on charges of obstruction of justice, burglary, theft of documents, and theft of government property.  All either were found guilty or pleaded guilty, and were charged with a 5 to 6 year prison sentence and $10,000 fine.  L. Ron Hubbard was named as a co-conspirator, but was never charged as he spent the rest of his life in hiding ( a time when he wrote Battlefield Earth) avoiding various charges by the US government, French government, and numerous private lawsuits.  

Stan Marsh: And best of all, I wrote that all the Scientologists should no longer have to pay money to belong. 

Scientology President: What? 

Stan: I realize that to really be a church, we can’t charge people for help.

President: What are you, stupid?! Then how do we make money from those people?! 

Stan: …Well, it’s not about the money. It’s about the message, right?

President: Wait a minute, whoa, whoa! You don’t actually believe this crap, do you?? Dummy! Brainwashed alien souls?? E-meters and thetan levels?? Those people out there buy that crap, and I thought YOU were smart enough to see what was really going on! 

Stan: But you said that there were–

President: What’s better than telling people a stupid story and having them believe you?!  Having them PAY you for it, stupid! 

Stan: But then, why me? Why do you need me to write something so badly?

President: Because if those people all think you’re the reincarnation of L. Ron Hubbard, then they’ll all buy your new writings, and you and I together will make three million dollars! 

Stan: Three million dollars? 

President: That’s how the scam works! But this is a scam on a global scale! Do you fucking get me now?!

L. Ron Hubbard in World War II,

“By assuming unauthorized authority and attempting to perform duties for which he has no qualifications, he became the source of much trouble… This officer is not satisfactory for independent duty assignment. He is garrulous and tries to give impressions of his importance. He also seems to think he has unusual ability in most lines.”

US Naval Attache to Australia, report on Lt. Lafayette Ronald Hubbard’s fitness for command.

Founder of the Church of Scientology, L. Ron Hubbard had many grandiose claims about his early life, that he could read and write by the age of 3, he was the youngest Eagle Scout in Boy Scout history, that he learned under mystics in India, magicians in China, and hung out with brigands in Tibet.  In truth most of this was bullshit, as was his many military service claims.  Hubbard liked to claim that he was a gallant US Navy officer, claiming that he served in all theaters of the war, had the rank of “Commodore of Corvette Squadrons”, was badly wounded, and was awarded twenty one medals and palms for his service.

Throughout Hubbard’s career he made such grand claims, and his supposed Naval service became such a central theme in Scientology that the elite organization within the church, the Sea Org, wears navy style uniforms.

Hubbard’s military records tell a different story, showing that through most of his World War II Naval career, he earned few medals, had the rank of Lieutenant, and spent most of his time either training or performing administrative duties, first in Australia, then later in the US. Hubbard only had two commands. His first command was the USS YP-42, a fishing trawler converted into a patrol boat, based out of Boston. Hubbard commanded the patrol boat barely two months before being relieved of duty after constantly arguing with senior officers.

In 1943, Hubbard took command of the USS PC-15, a subchaser which patrolled the Pacific Coast. On May 19th the PC-15 detected sonar readings of what could have possibly been an enemy submarine. Near Cape Lookout, Oregon, the area was known for sonar anomalies, but Hubbard insisted that the readings were an enemy submarine.  Over the next two days, PC-15 dropped its armament of 35 depth charges at the sonar blip. He was joined by two blimps and several Coast Guard patrol vessels, which he took temporary command of. In an 18 page after action report, Hubbard claimed he sunk the Japanese submarine, claiming to have found wreckage, an oil slick, and claiming the blimps and patrol boats sighted the submarine. However, he took no samples of the wreckage or oil slick, and the reports of the blimps, and Coast Guard vessels did not substantiate his claims. The Navy concluded that no Japanese submarine was present at the incident, and that the sonar readings were merely an anomaly.  After the war, Japanese records would confirm that Japanese subs never went near the area.

The PC-15 then headed south toward San Diego to participate in exercises. After the exercises, Hubbard decided to bombard an uninhabited American Island for shits and giggles.  The PC-15 fired several rounds of 3-inch deck gun shells, as wells as opening fire with machine guns, rifles, and pistols.  It turns out, the islands were not uninhabited islands, but the Coronado Islands belonging to Mexico, which were inhabited at the time by Mexican Navy personnel. The Mexican Government lodged a formal complaint, and Lt. Hubbard was relived of his command.

After World War II, Hubbard would go back to science fiction writing, spend some time with a famed rocket scientist to perform a series of sex magic rituals which involved masturbating on a sacred parchment in order to summon a goddess, and wrote diabetics, which became the foundation of Scientology.  His commission in the US Navy was officially deactivated in 1950.

A non exhaustive list of UFO religious groups

                                             Raëlism



“Raëlism (also known as Raëlianism or the Raëlian movement) is a UFO religion that was founded in 1974 by Claude Vorilhon (b. 1946), now known as Raël. The Raëlian Movement teaches that life on Earth was scientifically created by a species of extraterrestrials, which they call the Elohim. Members of this species appeared human when having personal contacts with the descendants of the humans that they made. They purposefully misinformed early humanity that they were angels, cherubim, or gods. Raëlians believe that messengers, or prophets, of the Elohim include Buddha, Jesus, and others who informed humans of each era. The founder of Raëlism, members claim, received the final message of the Elohim and that its purpose is to inform the world about Elohim and that if humans become aware and peaceful enough, they wish to be welcomed by them.”


                                   The Nuwaubian Nation

“The Nuwaubian Nation or Nuwaubian movement was a religious organization founded and led by Dwight York. York began founding Black Muslim groups in New York in 1967. He changed his teachings and the names of his groups many times, incorporating concepts from Judaism, Christianity, and many esoteric beliefs.In the late 1980s, he abandoned the Muslim theology of his movement in favor of Kemetism and UFO religion. In 1991 he took his community to settle in upstate New York; then they moved near the county seat of Eatonton, Georgia, in Putnam County. His followers built an ancient Egypt-themed compound called Tama-Re and changed their name to the “United Nuwaubian Nation of Moors.””


                                      The Universe People

 “ Universe People or Cosmic People of Light Powers (Czech: Vesmírní lidé sil světla) is a Czech and Slovak UFO religion founded in the 1990s and centered on Ivo A. Benda. Their belief system is based upon the existence of extraterrestrial civilizations communicating with Benda and other contactees since October 1997 telepathically and later even by direct personal contact. They are considered to be the most distinctive UFO religion in the Czech Republic.“ 

                                  

                                               Scientology

“Scientology is a body of religious beliefs and practices created in 1954 by American author L. Ron Hubbard (1911–86). Hubbard initially developed a program of ideas called Dianetics, which was distributed through the Dianetics Foundation. The foundation soon entered bankruptcy and Hubbard lost the rights to his seminal publication Dianetics: The Modern Science of Mental Health in 1952. He then recharacterized the subject as a religion and renamed it Scientology, retaining the terminology, doctrines, the E-meter, and the practice of auditing. Within a year, he regained the rights to Dianetics and retained both subjects under the umbrella of the Church of Scientology.

 In the OT levels, Hubbard explains how to reverse the effects of past-life trauma patterns that supposedly extend millions of years into the past. Among these advanced teachings is the story of Xenu (sometimes Xemu), introduced as the tyrant ruler of the "Galactic Confederacy”. According to this story, 75 million years ago Xenu brought billions of people to Earth in spacecraft resembling Douglas DC-8 airliners, stacked them around volcanoes and detonated hydrogen bombs in the volcanoes. The thetans then clustered together, stuck to the bodies of the living, and continue to do this today. “         

                                  

                                            Heaven’s Gate

“ Heaven’s Gate was an American UFO religious millenarian group based in San Diego, California, founded in the early 1970s and led by Marshall Applewhite (1931–1997) and Bonnie Nettles (1927–1985). On March 26, 1997, police discovered the bodies of 39 members of the group who had committed mass suicide in order to reach what they believed was an extraterrestrial spacecraft following Comet Hale–Bopp.

Heaven’s Gate members believed the planet Earth was about to be “recycled” (wiped clean, renewed, refurbished, and rejuvenated), and the only chance to survive was to leave it immediately. While the group was against suicide, they defined “suicide” in their own context to mean “to turn against the Next Level when it is being offered” and believed their “human” bodies were only vessels meant to help them on their journey. In conversation, when referring to a person or a person’s body, they routinely used the word “vehicle””                                      

                                  Church of the SubGenius

“The Church of the SubGenius is a parody religion that satirizes better-known belief systems. It teaches a complex philosophy that focuses on J. R. "Bob” Dobbs, purportedly a salesman from the 1950s, who is revered as a prophet by the Church. SubGenius leaders have developed detailed narratives about Dobbs and his relationship to various gods and conspiracies. Their central deity, Jehovah 1, is accompanied by other gods drawn from ancient mythology and popular fiction. SubGenius literature describes a grand conspiracy that seeks to brainwash the world and oppress Dobbs’ followers. In its narratives, the Church presents a blend of cultural references in an elaborate remix of the sources.“                  

                          

                                        Aetherius Society

“The Aetherius Society is a millenarian, New Age, UFO religion. It was founded by George King in the mid-1950s as the result of what King claimed were contacts with extraterrestrial intelligences, whom he referred to as “Cosmic Masters”. Regarded as firmly based in Theosophy, the Aetherius Society combines UFO claims, yoga, and ideas from various world religions, notably Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity. Stefan Isaksson notes that it has “become a complex religious belief system that includes an extraterrestrial hierarchy of various spiritual masters and such concepts as universal karma and religious healing.” The religion’s goal is to prevent worldly destruction by improving cooperation between humanity and various alien ‘masters’,and by using 'spiritual energy’ to improve the spiritual calibre of the world “

I’m currently reading Lawrence Wright’s Going Clear, and and among the many fascinating facts found in this book, I find the most stunning the revelation that L. Ron Hubbard, obviously well aware of the rapidly declining state of his mental health, wrote a letter to the VA in which he begged for psychiatric help all the way back in 1947… but never received the aid he so desperately needed.

Just imagine - if the United States Department of Veterans Affairs wasn’t pretty much backlogged from the moment if was formed, Hubbard would’ve been properly treated, and Scientology (and all it’s awfulness) would likely never come to existence.

Interesting thought, no?
