ARSCC (wdne) Press Release.
For immediate release.
A stroke of the gavel on Wednesday May 16, at 11 AM, by Judge
Walerstein in the remote village of Hemet California, may spark a loud
and embarrassing diplomatic fiasco for the US State Department.
Judge Wallerstein is expected to sentence convicted free
speech advocate Keith Henson to one year in jail, without parole for
"interfering with a religion" (Section 422.6 Cal Pen Code).
Mr Henson was convicted on this charge in April during a trial
marred my First and Fifth Amendment abuses and violations of Due
Process. The planned Defensive strategy of questioning the credibility
of the complaint, the witnesses and the evidence was derailed by Judge
Wallerstein in limine motions by Riverside DDA Robert Schwarz.
Corporate policies adhered to by complaining witnesses were not
permitted to be examined. Some of these policies include payment for
perjured testimony and training the witnesses in the practice of
deceptive testimony. A key component of the defense was to be the oft
judicially noted Scientology Policy of "Fair Game". This would have
exposed the vindictive and malicious nature of the prosecution of Mr.
Henson by the DA office in open collusion with the Scientology cult.
This too was excluded by Judge Wallerstein, dumbfounding Defense
lawyer James Harr.
Since no effective defense was permitted, Mr. Henson was
convicted of one of three counts charged.
The other two counts incredibly claimed Mr. Henson terrorized
Scientologists with his portable nuclear arsenal. These counts were
not resolved by a split jury.
The sitting jury was not informed of other key elements of the
case including Mr.Henson's free speech motivations or the signs he
carried while picketing the Hemet Compound of Scientology. It was the
picketing activity for which Mr. Henson was eventually convicted of
"interfering with a religion". The Scientologist Corporation felt it
necessary to go to extraordinary means and expense to conceal the
content of Mr. Henson's visual messages from its staff at a film
production studio. The studio is located at the razor wire ringed
Scientology compound. The heavily defended compound is in the desert
near Hemet, CA about 70 miles west of Los Angeles.
The US State Department may soon be involved in this case as
Mr. Henson is currently in Canada discussing a Human Rights Violation
Refugee Claim with an as yet unnamed top Canadian Immigration and
Refugee law firm.
"This petition for Refugee Status on violation of Mr. Henson's
Human Rights is a viable claim," stated a representative of the
Mr. Henson has reason to fear for his well being if he should
be jailed in Hemet. Scientology boasts it controls much of the local
prison population with Hubbardian Methodology (Criminon.] Since
Scientology has spent in excess of two million dollars in attempts to
"shudder into silence" Mr.Henson, the next policy application might
well be Hubbard's exhortation to "dispose of silently and without
sorrow" opponents who refused to be subdued by ordinary intimidation.
Mr. Henson is being sponsored by a Canadian Consumer and Free
Speech Advocate Gregg Hagglund
"The United States is supposed to be the land of free speech
and expression," says Hagglund, a staunch opponent of Scientology
deceptive consumer and corporate practices. "The Henson case clearly
demonstrates otherwise. I was pleased to help Keith find a socially
responsible and reputable legal representative who is prepared to
commit to vigorously and successfully argue for the petition."
Embarrassment will likely result for the US State Department
when it is forced to act in the thinly veiled interest of Scientology
and its long standing vendetta against Mr. Henson. Scientology is a
criminally convicted corporation in Canada and the Crown will also be
embarrassed if it is asked to litigate in US and therefore Scientology
interests, to deny any petition for Refugee Status on Human Rights
Violations by a US Government component.
The attendant publicity surrounding an American Free Speech
Advocate seeking refuge in Canada is expected to exceed the splashy
and often seedy expose of US legal machinations in the infamous Bambi
Bembenic Immigration and Extradition case.

True. But here is the take the lawyers have on what will unroll if I
apply for refugee status based on my human rights being violated by
the DA's office (working for the cult) in Riverside.
The Canadian government will grant temporary residence and a work
permit to me while this unfolds because when you look at the situation
even for a few minutes it has a good deal of surface plausibility.
Then the Canadian government must by law oppose in court proceedings
my application for refugee status. (Ya just don't let anyone in who
makes a claim.) By treaty and custom, they will require and get the
assistance of the US State Department who will have to investigate the
facts of the situation. You can bet your last nickel they will
investigate the facts around my case in Hemet and provide assistance
to the Canadians (if they can) because otherwise the US get tagged as
a country which has violated the human rights of one of its citizens
and had the fact proved in court. *Highly* embarrassing when the next
time comes around for membership on the United Nations Human Rights
In court proceedings *here* all matters related to the cult will come
out. There will be no limitation forbidding me to discuss in detail
the cults corporate policies of lying, paying for false testimony,
fair game, corrupting public officials, etc.
Now, consider the links involved. The DA's office in the County
government of Riverside is working for the cult to deny me the human
right of free expression, and with this pending jail sentence,
freedom itself. (I don't think anyone who has been reading the saga
has doubts about that.) The State Department would be trying to
justify the actions of the Riverside DA (under the direction of the
cult) to the Canadian government.
Here in Canada, the cult has a criminal record, "breach of the public
trust" and are on a short leash for that reason. (The cult has a
criminal record in the States too, but that gets swept under the rug.)
The Crown prosecutors are not going to be any too pleased about
working for the criminally convicted cult even through links. This
makes the chances of denying refugee status based on human rights
violations rather slim.
Neither is the Riverside County DA's office going to be too happy
about highly motivated Federal investigators going over their records
of this case and asking about those letters from the cult to the DA
and perhaps even the conspiracy between cult lawyers and a DDA to get
me arrested on failure to appear charges. They should have thought
about being put under a microscope before they let the cult use Tom
Gage to file charges.
I am not keeping this situation secret because, like Jon Noring, I
believe in warning. It is proper to put up signs saying "Open Mine
Shaft, watch where you step."
>This is but my take on international politics though, and it will be
>interesting to watch if this is indeed the case with Keith.
Then we have the keen French interest in this situation. A showing
that the cult has subverted human rights in part of the US would
exactly fit with their concerns expressed in the Picard bill about the
cult undermining democracy. And for that matter, the Germans have
more than a little interest, not to mention Belgium and Spain and . .
*IF* I apply, expect a news conference.
Keith Henson (from Gregg's account)
PS. I actually came up here to picket, brought two changes of
clothes. It was only after bunch of people started trolling on this
topic that we decided it was worth seeking expert opinion.
PPS Gregg really is an evil genius.
