RAY KEMP FLAG INCIDENT
An incident that leapt to view connected to LRHâ€™s unbelievable jealousy of someone doing well.
It occurred in Madeira, Canary Islands around December 1974, I had just come aboard the Apollo just as Ray Kemp was leaving to go back to the US to his Mission in Orange County. I talked with Ray for about an hour and he raved at how well Hubbard had treated him, having him dine with him and spend several hours talking with him. Ray had known LRH since he was a child; LRH had often stayed at Rayâ€™s motherâ€™s house who was a close personal friend as were both Ray and his wife Pam.
As Ray left the ship, LRH saw him off, shaking hands and wishing him well. I was standing about 20 feet away. Ray left. LRH turned, called Bob Young who was 1st Mate (basically the senior ethics officer of all Scio.) over and gave him some very specific orders. I couldnâ€™t hear what was being said, but I saw Bob go almost into shock. After LRH left, I walked over to Bob and asked him what had just happened. Bob was stunned, he blurted out â€œLRH just told me to contact the GO in England and totally destroy Ray and take his Mission away from him.â€?
Ray had made the most deadly mistake you could do with LRH, â€œboast that you were doing something better than LRH could do.â€?
It wasnâ€™t long after that maybe 3 months, that Ray was destroyed and he and Pam were declared SP and their properties were stolen from them.
Many years later at the 1st Mission Holders meetings the 1st thing we accomplished was to get back Rayâ€™s property, we also got back Bent Corydonâ€™s building for him.

Interview with Kima Douglas, Oakland, California, 27 August 1986
Kima from 1973 to 1980, became LRHâ€™s unique combination of nurse, aide de camp and confidante.
Towards end of the time at La Quinta there was lot of security. He always took a big guy from HCO [Hubbard Communications Office] with him. People watched the perimeters on guard. There were two watchmen at night.
LEAVING LA QUINTA.
When Kempâ€™s franchise had their war with the GO and their people were sneaking around taking photographs. They were trying to photograph LRH. ( The Kemp's never knew the orders came directly from LRH.)
That meant all the â€œenemiesâ€? knew where we were.
Michael and I and LRH split.
We had a big white truck with a bed in the back. Michael was driving; LRH was in the back with me in the front. Over the mountains, up hairpins, very fast.
Heâ€™s in the back saying, â€œWeâ€™ve got to go faster, got to get out of here! Iâ€™m going to be sick!â€?
He had seen people snooping round while he was out for a walk with a
messenger and came back and said, â€œWeâ€™re getting out now.â€? It was
about 9 in the evening when he left. We slept in a motel in the
mountains that night. The next day we went down to Hemet Lake and
found a really seedy motel down there on the lake. We stayed there for

Fair game may be a way to utterly ruin people but it takes a tremendous toll on the oneâ€™s who instigate the act, for they too are always expecting to be utterly ruined, they end up continuously going to extraordinary solutions to prevent that from happening, they finally finish up in the worst of states, as they have no friends, every person or entity is a potential enemy and they live in a self-created forever threatening dangerous environment.
For those who want to know what LRH the man was like to live with, this is a fascinating interview.http://www.xs4all.nl/~kspaink/cos/rmiller-src/kima.htm
This is all anyone really needs to know about L. Ron Hubbard.
