Re: $cientology v. Armstrong, Marin SC No. 152229/157680

Dear Mr. Wilson:

I left two messages for you yesterday and just spoke with you this morning.

I requested from you time in which to file a response to whatever you intend to file with Judge Smith before the December 27, 2000 hearing.

I argued that if you are going to mock up another poison apple I should at least have the opportunity to take a bite. I argued the common courtesy of a grant of a period of time for a party to respond to any filing. But I also believe that it’s almost certainly the law. You were hoping to pull a fast one.

You refused to grant my request. You said that because I had not responded to your application I now couldn’t respond to whatever else you filed. I said bullshit.

You said you were not saying anything new. And I said in that case don’t file it.

You said that the only problem was that the judge didn’t read what you’d submitted. In that case, get the judge to read what’s there.

But if you file anything new, which you say you intend to do, and by anything new I mean any piece of paper whatsoever, I want an opportunity to respond.

I want two weeks from the date you serve me with whatever you file to respond. And I want the hearing on this matter set for a week beyond that.

You cannot argue that there is some huge rush all of a sudden. That too is bullshit. These alleged “ violations” you want me jailed and fined for go back, by your own words, to February 20, 1998. Whatever were the crime cultists you work for doing during all that time?

Please arrange for the scheduling I’ve suggested above and communicate directly back to me. What else can you possibly do?

Very truly yours,

Gerry Armstrong

Re: $cientology v. Armstrong, Marin SC No. 152229/157680

Dear Mr. Wilson:

You state:

“I intend to appear before Judge Smith at 9:30 on December 27, and inform him that I have spoken with you, and that we are agreeable to your filing whatever response you wish in this matter, that we had suggested one week and that you wanted two weeks.”

You are for some not odd reason lying. You did not suggest one week. You refused throughout our conversation to agree to provide me ANY time to respond. Surely you know how rotten it is for an officer of the court to so willfully lie to a layman such as I.

So go ahead and tell Judge Smith your lie. Tell him all sorts of lies. That’s what $cientology pays you to do, after all. What you’ve written about me in sworn declarations over the years is full of the cruelest of lies. How can any person in pro per go up against a lawyer, an officer of the court who shares cocktails with the judges, who is willing to willfully lie like you do?

I suppose you’ll tell Judge Smith too that actually it was you who called me three times because the pious religious folk you work for just wanted to do the right, honorable, just and courteous thing and make sure I had the opportunity to respond to the religious filings they’ll give him. A bite of their apple as it were.

Well, be very clear Andy Wilson. No matter what happens, I know you are trying to have Judge Smith punish me for violating an unlawful order. I know that you know that it’s unlawful. I seriously suspect that you obtained the order from Judge Thomas by unlawful means. You have accepted a great deal of money from $cientology to obtain this unlawful order, enforce this unlawful order, and punish me unlawfully with imprisonment and fines for violating this unlawful order, which as I say, I believe, you obtained unlawfully. I hold you personally responsible, along with the $cientology enterprise you have represented in this unlawful venture.

I suggest you correct the lie you told in your e-mail of today, and which you intend to tell Judge Smith.I further suggest that your need to lie, as you intend to do to Judge Smith, and which you have done in your application for an OSC re contempt already filed, is evidence of your guilty knowledge. Finally I suggest that you contact me over this weekend with some kind of peace offering.

Well Merry Christmas to liars and others alike.

Dear Mr. Armstrong;

Thanks for your lovely Christmas invective. I recall that in our conversation, you asked for two weeks. I said I would not committ to anything, but would "take it under submission" and get back to you. I did ask you how much time you wanted and you said two weeks. I do recall saying that I thought a week would be enough. If you want to characterize that as a lie, go ahead.

I assume, however, that you are requesting two weeks and I will communicate that to Judge Smith.

Re: $cientology v. Armstrong, Marin SC No. 152229/157680

Dear Mr. Wilson:

Clearly you know that I have maintained from the day that Judge Thomas stamped your injunction that it is unlawful. Nothing which has transpired since, and nothing you, nor any other $cientology agent or $cientologist, have said or written has provided any support for the nutty proposition that the Thomas injunction is lawful. And on the other hand, everything which has transpired since Judge Thomas stamped your injunction, everything you have done or said, and everything every other $cientology agent or $cientologist has done or said, supports my conviction that the injunction is unlawful.

As you are very aware, I cannot be held in contempt for violating an unlawful order. Yet you have proceeded, and are proceeding, to have me punished for violating the unlawful Thomas injunction, which you know extremely well is unlawful. I imagine when all of this is publicly and universally detailed, what you have done, and what the crime cultists you work for have done, in obtaining and enforcing this unlawful order, will be seen as perhaps the most egregious abuse of process and malicious prosecution in modern U$ jurisprudence.

In the meantime, there is the monumental matter of the two outstanding warrants you obtained to have me arrested pursuant to the two earlier contempt orders Judge Thomas stamped for you, all based on your unlawful injunction. I obviously can’t come back to California to defend myself at the hearing on January 17, when your crime cult employers would just have me picked up and jailed. You’re very aware, I’m sure, that the crime bosses running $cientology would love to have me bumped off in jail before I could ever attend any hearing on their unlawful injunction.

Thus I write to ask you to stipulate to the withdrawal, cancellation or abrogation of your warrants for my arrest, which are based on the unlawful Thomas injunction. I need to be able to travel freely and safely in California in order to take the necessary steps to retain counsel before the hearing, and just to be able to attend the hearing.

Please let me know as soon as possible.

Thank you.

Dear Mr. Wilson:

I have heard, but not confirmed, that Judge Smith set a hearing on your OSC re Contempt for January 17, 2001. Will you please confirm that date.

I requested from the Court, as you know, two weeks to respond from the date of your service on me of your latest papers. You stated on December 22 that it was your intention to file these new papers that day. I still have received them

Will you please tell me if or when you filed your new papers, and if you have filed them, let me know how you served them on me.

Thank you.

Dear Mr. Armstrong:

You are apparently asking us to give you some relief from the Court's previous orders. As in the past, you ask for the Court's assistance only when it benefits you, but feel free to ignore the Court when it does not. Thus, you felt that you could ignore the permanent injunction simply because you disagreed with it, and in fact, you chose to leave the State rather than obey that order.

The Court found you in contempt. You ignored that order as well. You could have appeared in court at that time but you chose not to. The Court issued a bench warrant. You chose to flee and to continue your willful violations of the injunctions. The Court again found you in contempt. Those willful violations persisted.

The contempt citations against you were issued by the Court as a result of your willful violations of its orders. Only the Court can withdraw them and we will certainly not presume to act for the Court.

Sincerely,

Andrew H. Wilson

You say: "As in the past, you ask for the Court's assistance only when it benefits you, but feel free to ignore the Court when it does not."

Whatever are you talking about? The Court's assistance always benefits me. Really, what do you mean?

As you know, the subject order is unlawful. So certainly I want the Court's assistance to have the order judicially ruled unlawful. If the Court, as with Judge Thomas, refused to rule the unlawful order unlawful, clearly I would ignore that Court. You have never explained to me, nor has any other $cientologist or wog (R), what basis you have for insisting I obey this unlawful order. And that too only makes me more convinced that you have always known the injunction you by some unseen means got Judge Thomas to sign is unlawful.

You say: "You felt that you could ignore the permanent injunction simply because you disagreed with it, and in fact, you chose to leave the State rather than obey that order."

And I say, as you know, I know you're a liar. You are paid by $cientology to lie. In fact, I ignore your injunction in good part because you lied to get it, you lied to get your contempt orders, and you're lying now to have me unlawfully found in contempt again. You and your cult client have unclean hands and you know it. I ignore your injunction because it's an unlawful order, completely impermissible and impossible, and you know that too. You should be calling me to make peace instead of sending me more lies.

You say: "The Court found you in contempt. You ignored that order as well."

You forget the part about sending that threat letter to me after I was served by Grady Ward, don't you? But none of this matters, really does it? Because no matter what you say, nor what Judge Thomas says, nor what any judge you can con says, your injunction is unlawful, based on conditions of $cientology's insane " settlement agreement" which are unlawful. You know they're unlawful, and I know you know they're unlawful.

You say: "The Court issued a bench warrant. You chose to flee and to continue your willful violations of the injunctions."

And I say that you are such a liar. I am quite certain you participated in the withholding of the 1023 black PR on me. What other reason do you have to always get these dates wrong, always tell this same lie?

You say: "The Court again found you in contempt. Those willful violations persisted."

Yeah well, duh! Your unlawful injunction doesn't suddenly become lawful because a judge wrongly punishes someone for violating it.

You say: "The contempt citations against you were issued by the Court as a result of your willful violations of its orders. Only the Court can withdraw them and we will certainly not presume to act for the Court."

Yeah, sure. I'll just bet. If you went into court and told the Judge that you know the injunction is unlawful and you and your client don't want to continue to persecute Armstrong with this unlawful injunction and the unlawful contempt orders and the unlawful warrants, I'll just bet the Judge would say, "Sorry, nope, only the Court can withdraw all these nasty unlawful things and the Court don't want to. I'll just bet.

And, don't forget all the unlawful black PR you and your crime cult bosses have spread about your unlawful injunction and your unlawful "contract" through the years. There ain't no Court preventing you from taking care of all that entheta.

So, what do you say? Wanna see if the Judge really would turn you down if you asked that the warrants be disposed of quietly and without sorrow?

Yours formally,

Re: $cientology v. Armstrong
Marin Superior Court No. 152229/157680

Dear Mr. Wilson:

Over the past many months I have tried on many occasions to get you to serve on me whatever orders you had the Court, either Judge Smith or anyone else, sign/enter following the January 17, 2001 hearing in my case.

It is clear that you and your office are deliberately withholding such orders, and willfully refusing to send them to me for the improper purpose of preventing my appealing from them.

As you know, I have left a number of voice mail messages for you, and you have failed to respond to any of them. As you also know, I’m certain, I did speak a number of times to your employee Larry Tripaldi (sp?) on this subject. On each occasion I specifically requested that he send the order/s, and on each occasion he stated that he would right away. On one occasion he said that he had already overnighted the documents to me; but when I called him soon after, since the documents did not arrive, he acknowledged that they had not been sent, and that he would send them immediately. A period of time later, because again the documents did not arrive, I called your office and again spoke to Mr. Tripaldi, who this time said he had connections to New York and had been affected by the September 11 disaster and thus forgot to send the documents, but would immediately.

When I spoke to Mr. Tripaldi I asked him if he had been instructed not to send me the documents, or if I was being treated so discourteously because I’m the $cientology cult’s fair game target, and he assured me that he had received no such instructions. His subsequent continuing and complete failure to send the documents, and of course your own failure for months to have the documents served on me or even to return my telephone calls, convince me that Mr. Tripaldi was lying and was in fact being directed to withhold service.

You and your office had no trouble at all sending me the documents you used to obtain whatever orders you obtained in Marin Superior Court, but after obtaining them you find it impossible to properly serve them on me. I construe this as further proof that you know that what you’ve done in obtaining for the $cientology cult all the orders you’ve obtained against me is not legal, and that what you’ve been a knowing part of to destroy my basic human and civil rights is a criminal conspiracy.

You are so afraid of my being heard by the Court of Appeal, or any other court, that you’d deny me the appealable orders themselves, and even not acknowledge my calls, in compliance with your clients’ feebly postulated hope that maybe I’d forget or go away. I am not unaware of the extreme physical danger I am in from your clients and their lawyers like yourself, but that will not cause me to forget or go away. My life will demonstrate the hypocrisy, cruelty and criminality of your $cientology clients and their lawyers, and your futility, indeed lunacy, in trying to limit, silence, suppress and destroy that life.

You will all discover that Hubbard was stupidly wrong, and you were stupidly wrong to buy into his stupid wrongness. The law cannot be used very easily at all to harass. And not only can't the law be used very easily to harass, no matter how easy, or how hard it is, using the law to harass is still completely illegal. All $cientology's OTs and all the lawyer sleazes Scientologists' fees buy cannot very easily use the law to harass, and decent folk don't like it one bit that you all keep trying so desperately and dangerously. You are very foolish to be on the side of this sick $cientological suppression.

Please immediately send me all orders or other documents comprising the record in the above- referenced case since the January 17, 2001 hearing in the case.

Very truly yours,
