We cannot, however, simply assume that Princess Margaret was the star of these photos. There are plenty of other royal candidates; not the least of whom being her brother-in-law, who may well have also been caught in flagrante delicto by the erect zoom-lens of a concealed paparazzo. As such, we shall return to the Baker Street Robbery in greater detail in due course.
I can’t help but be drawn to the similarities between Michael X and Charles Manson. Both commanded support from groups of star-struck acolytes, both ran bizarre communes and both condoned racial uprising, – albeit from totally opposite sides of the tracks – Manson with his ‘helter-skelter’ and X with his ‘Black Liberation Army’.
Manson famously claimed that The Beatles had been sending him messages via the lyrics contained within tracks on ‘The White Album’, while Michael X could go one better when the ex-Beatle John Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono shaved off their mop-tops and sold the remnants on behalf of X’s Black House before also paying for his, considerable, legal fees.
Manson, it has been alleged, ordered the atrocities at 10050 Cielo Drive because he had become aware that the property’s tenant, the film producer Roman Polanski, was involved in a paedophile snuff-movie ring and that it was this that precipitated the brutal murder of Polanski’s heavily pregnant wife Sharon Tate and four others.
Now subsequent incidents would imply that there may be some truth in the Polanski allegation but these would not have been common knowledge at the time so how did Manson know?
Equally, if the allegations about the Princess Margaret photographs are true then how did they land up in the hands of a drug-dealing London pimp?
All will be revealed in good time.
However, in the case of Manson we need to look even further afield. Manson had been indoctrinated into the bizarre ‘auditing’ methods of Scientology when he was in prison and claims that by the time of his release in 1967 he had reached the level of ‘Cleared Theta Clear’, or ‘Beta-Clear’. Whatever that means?
Actually, in mind-control programming it is the subjects who are deemed to have demonstrable psychic abilities that undergo Theta programming. In the parallel world of Scientology a ‘Cleared Theta Clear’ is, according to its founder L. Ron Hubbard:
“A thetan who is completely rehabilitated and can do everything a thetan should do, such as move Matter, Energy, Space, and Time and control others from a distance, or create his own universe”.
All of which is clearly the biggest pile of steaming horse-shit imaginable but I can’t help but be drawn to the claim about controlling others from a distance. However, for old Charlie-boy these alleged abilities, apparently, were not enough. Supposedly, in 1968 Charlie had dropped into a Church of Scientology in LA. whereupon Manson asked the receptionist: “What do you do after ‘clear’?”
To which the answer seemingly went along the lines of: Go forth dear Charlie and form a hippie-commune with which to rid the world of the family and friends of a kiddie-fiddling film director whilst simultaneously sparking a global race war from whence the planet will be liberated of all the non-Scientology believing scum, obviously!
Manson clearly suffers from ‘short-man-syndrome’; a disorder in which short-arsed men try to over-compensate for their boy-like stature, usually by being overly aggressive. For Charlie, however, even possessing Godlike abilities were not enough to assuage his personal demons. He was, after all, not only morally lower than a snakes belly but he also physically stood knee-high to a grasshopper!
Possibly this is why, upon his release from prison, he would seek contact with a Scientology splinter group then going by the name of The Process: Church of the Final Judgement. Now these guys were proper fruitcakes, they worshipped both Jesus and Satan and would dress up in black robes whilst walking the streets of London with their beloved Alsatian dogs in tow - they REALLY loved their dogs - handing out leaflets to the acid casualties in the hope that they would snare a real dope.
A pair of Processeans: Seriously, even brainwashing doesn’t excuse those clothes!
Surprisingly this bizarre recruitment technique does appear to have worked. They embarked upon it in London before expanding their imbecile entrapment scheme to the warmer climes of Mexico, San Francisco and LA. These days they go by the slightly less sinister, but still equally weird, name of Best Friends Animal Society - and they still REALLY love their dogs!
Despite my juvenile insinuation that the Processeans were sexually attracted to these beasts, they apparently did truly believe that Alsatian’s could predict the apocalypse! Seriously, these are the types of idiots that would place a bet on what day the Earth would end and then still expect to be around to be paid out! Joking aside though, animals can actually predict the future; my cat can predict when she needs a shit, however, I do not feel the need to follow her outside and worship her psychic sphincter!
But it is to the cool-cats of swinging London that we must return.
The Process: Church of the Final Judgement was founded by two freaks going by the name of Mary and Robert de Grimston. Mary had started life as plain old Mary Ann MacLean in the Glasgow tenements before moving to London and becoming one of Ward’s girls working out of Murray’s Cabaret Club prior to progressing on to running her own brothel. She would meet Robert Moor at a Scientology Dianetics class in 1963.The pair were enthusiastic adherents of Scientology before they were kicked out when the ‘religions’; founder, and Lord looney-tune himself, L. Ron Bell-End claimed in 1965 that the de Grimston’s had been declared ‘suppressive persons’ for launching their Process splinter group, and offering what they called, Compulsions Analysis. Compulsions Analysis was, of course, just a re-branded version of Scientology’s ‘auditing’ technique; Bob and Mary having also scarpered with a Scientology e-meter as well. Mary, however, claimed that they left the organisation after the Scientologists bugged one of her auditing sessions.
|Oracle and Teacher|
Most ex-Scientologists will tell you that being deemed a ‘suppressive person’ leads them to being bullied, victimised and physically punished, but when Bob and Mary left, taking the family silver with them no less, they found themselves being put up in a posh pad inhabited by Lords and Ladies.
The location of this posh pad in Wigmore Street, however, in the heart of the west London, Marylebone nexus, is truly significant because of the neighbours the Processeans would have shared. Stephen Ward had lived locally in Wimpole Mews and had his practice in nearby Devonshire Street – though he had departed this mortal coil by 1963 – and Dr Richard Asher lived in Wimpole Street whilst I visited him and his colleagues in nearby Harley Street.
We will come to the significance of who the de Grimston’s were living with at this time in due course, however, it would be remiss of me not to also mention that a fellow founding Processean; a guy by the name of Hugh, aka Michael, Mountain, is rumoured to be the son of the media baron and founder of Granada Television, Sidney Bernstein. I have been unable to confirm the validity of this claim, however, if true, it would help connect a lot of the showbiz dots.
Also significant is that L. Ron Hubbard had compiled a brainwashing manual about which his first born spawn, the imaginatively named; L. Ron Hubbard Jr. had this to say:
“Dad wrote every word of it. Barbara Bryan and my wife typed the manuscript off his dictation. And then we took it up to New York and tried to get them to do a program on it with Charles Collingwood at CBS. Dad also tried to sell it to the FBI. Years later they snuck it into the Library of Congress, and somebody else came by and said, “Oh lookee, it was found in the Library of Congress!” which is a lot of baloney.”
Jr. added the following juicy titbit:
“If you want to see how LRH [L. Ron Hubbard] really worked things org-wise, especially from the mid-sixties on, you just have to read the brainwashing manual.”
Which is something that I have absolutely no doubt that both Bob and Mary did, presumably gaining first-hand instruction from the chief fruit-loop himself. Who knows, they may well have contributed some ideas of their own. When the time came for these Processeans, as they were keen to be known, to leave England’s green and pleasant land they found themselves being accused of being involved in both the Zodiac and Son of Sam serial killings and of having had connections with Robert F. Kennedy’s killer Sirhan Sirhan. Bobby Kennedy, incidentally, I’m sure, had dined the night before his death with Roman Polanski and his wife Sharon Tate.
Indeed, in the 2002 revised edition of his Manson epic, The Family, the author Ed Sanders speaks of a 1974 investigation into “a satanic group of English origin” conducted by an Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) criminal investigator named Richard Smith.
Sanders instructed a researcher working for him to contact Smith who was allowed to read his report, which stated:
“English satanist cult members invited Sirhan Sirhan to a number of parties that were sponsored by television people in Los Angeles, and that one of the parties took place at Sharon Tate’s residence. At these parties, it was averred, sexual and ritualistic activities were reported to have occurred.”
It is rumoured that Sharon Tate was killed because of something she had overheard about the subsequent slaying of RFK by Sirhan Sirhan. Whilst only a rumour it seems clear that Sirhan was a patsy, set-up to take the fall, and that someone needed to keep the truth from coming out.
Could the parties that Sirhan attended at Tate’s, and elsewhere, have been designed in order that blackmail material could be obtained of him? Just what other prominent faces may appear in any home-movies of these soiree’s?
Whilst in his book The Ultimate Evil, author Maury Terry contended that the Son of Sam killer, David Berkowitz, was a member of ‘The Children’: a supposed splinter group of The Process: Church of the Final Judgment.
Terry claimed to have learnt through sources, including Berkowitz himself, that one of the Son of Sam murders was videotaped, and that the cameraman, Ron Sisman, was subsequently murdered by cult members when they went to recover the Son of Sam snuff-film and that this same execution had been predicted in advance by Berkowitz.
If Berkowitz himself was a fully paid-up Processean, or, indeed part of some obscure splinter organisation is clearly a moot point, but he was certainly well versed in their methodology.
Via an intermediary on the www I managed to obtain a quote from Berkowitz himself concerning The Process: Church of the Final Judgement:
“As for the Process Church, it was pretty much dissolved over time, especially with the deaths of its founders Robert and Maryann DeGrimston. I think there’s a lot of evidence that some Process members [were] practicing mind-control, which they were big on in the 1960s and 70s, put it into the head of Charles Manson to help create “Anarchy” which Manson tried to do. His plan, so it has been said, was to start a race war. Back in the 60s there was already plenty of racial unrest. So he and his followers (who were nothing more than brainwashed dupes who were being controlled by drugs, poor diets and lack of proper sleep) set off on their killing spree with the idea that blacks would be blamed for the crimes, and this would cause something to be set off racially. The so called “Zebra” killings had been going on at this time too. The time was ripe for revolution. The primary teaching of the Process’s founders was to cause anarchy so as to bring about, in the long run, world peace. Their belief being that Satan and Jesus were brothers who had a falling out in Heaven. That once the apocalypse was over and the book of Revelation (The Process people were obsessed with the book of Revelation) was fulfilled, that Satan and Jesus would call a truce, shake hands, and a new millennium of world peace would begin and folks would live happily ever after. This was one of the themes of the Process, one of its goals; Anarchy to eventually bring about world peace. That’s why even the so called “Son of Sam” killings were seen in a positive light - as absurd as it would be to think this way now - that the ultimate goal would be world peace. That the killings was (sic) not a work of evil, but good. In that anarchy and lawlessness must come first if world peace was to come, too. Leave it to Satan to deceive the foolish, and I was a fool!”
Interestingly enough, shortly after I received this information (March 2016) I received word from my source that soon after David had written to him about the Process Church he had found himself being transferred to another prison. It seems that even today it is dangerous to talk about this organisation.
There is, though, an emergent, if circumstantial, link between The Process: Church of the Final Judgement, show-business disciples and serial-killers.
Prosecuting attorney in the Charles Manson trial, Vincent Bugliosi, in his book Helter Skelter, claims that he asked Manson about knowing de Grimston:
He denied knowing de Grimston, but said he had met Moore (sic). “You're looking at him,” Manson told me. “Moore and I are one and the same.” I took this to mean that he felt they thought alike.
So, are you beginning to see the similarities? Brainwashing, occult groups, snuff-movies and death; all being manipulated and orchestrated by sinister, Machiavellian puppet-masters.
But perhaps we should dig a bit deeper into the cult that had found itself christened – if that is not an oxymoron – the Mindbenders of Mayfair by the mighty wordsmiths of Fleet Street.
