When dealing with elaborate frauds, context is everything. Those new to my screeds should google Arnie Lerma +xenu and read for a while to provide context. At minimum you need to have read these two articles one in the Washington Post, the other NY Newsday for this blog entry to have proper context. Christmas Day article 1994 LINK, and the August Raid LINK
It was winter 1996/1997, I’d had a lot of publicity from RTC vs Lerma, the Federal case that authenticated “XENU” as the real deal…
A gentlemen called and said he was a journalist from Canada and happened to be in town and wanted to meet with me, having read about me in the newspaper and wanted to speak to me. I said “fine”, as I had met with dozens of journalists by now and we agreed to meet at a gin mill on the west side of 19th street NW between M Street and K Street in the club district south of Dupont Circle.
I walked in and saw a fellow sitting alone at a table for two, and he looked up, saw me and waved me over.
“The King of the Gypsies”
He introduced himself, saying his name was Ian Hancock, this Ian Hancock.
He introduced himself and said he was considered by some to be “The King of the Gypsies” He told me that President Bill Clinton had made him an honorary ambassador to the United Nations for the Romani in America, and had given him a nice plaque to hang on the wall. At the time I thought this was rather impressive, as if to convey that his words had a certain authority. I had previously met with party leaders of Germany’s Parliament including Rennate Rennabach ans Ursurla Caberta at the Freidrich Ebert Stiftung Foundation to advise them on how to best deal with the Scientology problem, tried my hand at lobbying on Capitol Hill for the anti-scientology cause, and being born and raised in Washington DC met my share of VIPs. My electronics business had serviced the needs of Wonderman, and the Crown Prince of Iran, so perhaps I was not quite as impressed with this gentleman’s authority as others might have been,.. anyway, back to this strange tale.
Mr Ian Hancock then told me a story:
The Death of John McMaster
He said was in the U.K. and had interviewed a once famous celebrity $cientologist named John McMaster* . Jon McMaster was a dapper and eloquent charismatic speaker in the Scientology movement in the 1960’s.
Mr Hancock said that he interviewed John McMaster in a “Manchester flop house” shortly before he passed away. He claimed that Mr McMaster told him that when he was St Hill Manor, that Hubbard would taunt him about being gay, and on one occassion when Hubbard knocked on his door, Hubbard was standing the naked, wearing stockings and a garter belt, and pranced around the room after he came in. Quite a story, I was somewhat awed.
After describing details in this incident in lurid detail he then described the death bed scene:
“John McMaster lay in his bed dying, his room was filled with dead flowers.”
Then, Mr Hancock said that it would better if I criticized L. Ron Hubbard instead of David Miscavige.(see note3) As the conversation continued he restated the general idea that it would be better to be critical of “Ron” instead of “Miscavige”. After each restatement he would pause, and I noted he seemed to be watching me intently, and he would say:
“BECAUSE DEAD MEN CAN’T SUE”
The implication was unmistakable: I can’t be sued by Hubbard for saying he was a rat-bastard because he is dead, but I could be sued by David Miscavige.
It was apparent to me that he was chatting me up on behalf of David Miscavige(see note2).. leaning on me to not criticize Mr Miscavige, and instead criticize Mr. Hubbard. And using some kind of persuasion techniques to accomplish this. At the time of this meeting I had not yet begun my research into covert methods of persuasion(Note2), all I knew was that this was a strange meeting.
Why was “The King of the Gypsies” being a water boy for David Miscavige?
And.. just how deep does this particular rabbit hole go??
Note: Hubbard was the Founder of scientology and David Miscavige used despicable means to take complete control of the scientology corporate structure after Hubbard’s death in 1986. Here is ONE example Hubbard appointed a gal to be the Director of CST, for LIFE. CST is the corporate structure that owns the copyrights and licenses them to the local scientology organizations for a commission fee on their income. Scientologists will note that the copyright notice in their books says “Copyright held by RTC” held.. not Owned.. CST OWNS them. CST is the big kahuna of the Scientology empire of lies.
This gal had lifetime dream. Her dream job was to manage a horse farm in New Zealand. Well wouldn’t you know, David Miscavige knew about this girls dream, and arranged everything. To the gal it was a serendipitous opportunity, perhaps a gift from God, when a man she had chanced to cross paths with said that he needed a manager for his beautiful horse farm in New Zealand. The girl then did what any normal person would do, she jumped at this opportunity. Giving up her appointment from L Ron Hubbard himself, as The Director for LIFE of CST.
With the Hubbard appointed-for-life director out of the way, David Miscavige was free to move in… Source: Ex Scientology Office of Special Affairs lawyer Joseph Vannier’s book “Arrows in the Dark”
Consider the efforts taken to demonize him, and implication of the details above…

Note2: Those who have read my other pages may recognize that The King of the Gypsies was trying to hypnotize me…giving me a direct suggestion, to not criticize David Miscavige.
He combined story telling, with AUTHORITATIVE SUGGESTION, HEAVY EMOTIONAL CONTENT, REPETITION, DIRECT SUGGESTION, – the Shock and Awe method
The name of the METHOD I believe might have been leaked by George Bush..as he likely had been shown the method, then said it on TV, It is called Shock and Awe.
Then you tell him an enormous TRUTH… such as, there is a breakaway ‘civilization’ and the US has a colony on Mars and those black triangles are US, using anti gravity. Then you show him some pictures… Staff lists… etc..
-or- the world is going to end in 180 days… or three buildings were destroyed in Manhattan by terrorists….
At this point thinking has been stopped, he is in shock and awe!
When thinking stops the door to the subconscious is left unguarded..
Then you tell him the suggestion you want him to believe to be true.
“Anything said to a hypnotized subject is true for them” said the father of weaponized hypnosis, Dr. George Estabrooks in 1943
Incidentally, this was also one of the techniques Hubbard used for OT level III… Xenu and the Wall of Fire…
Note3: When David Miscavige was first in the CMO, Commodores Messenger Organization, he was young, short, and had and still has asthma. He would lean against the railing, cupping his hands to hide his use of an inhaler. At that time Suzette Hubbard was the CMO boss, and she gave him the nickname “The Asthmatic Dwarf” which is what was referred to with derision behind his back. The phrase is (c) Suzette Hubbard.
It has been noted that before his rise to power, that David Miscavige appeared to have some sort of influence with Hubbard, the bottom of this page just might explain why. LINK
Thank you for reading all the way to the end, in this tl:dr age, it is encouraging. There is an enormous amount of data that must be read and thoroughly digested to grasp the enormity of the fraud called Scientology. please send this link to recovering scientologists both a chuckle and insight into just how far the Asthmatic Dwarf’s Empire will go to get what they want, and make your dreams come true.
