Narconon - Chilocco USA I
"Narconon" is one of the very many Scientology cover companies. Rudi Kruspel is not the only one who supports "Narconon." His friend and "savior" Gottfried Helnwein, still today, is a great supporter and major sponsor, as is evident in an article in the American Scientology membership magazine "Celebrity," 1990 edition - with the copyright notice in the masthead on page 3: "Copyright 1990 by the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre International.... All rights reserved." What is interesting about that is that the "Celebrity" magazine logo, as well as the words Celebrity Center, Dianetics, E-meter, Hubbard, LRH, Scientologist and Scientology are service and trade marks in the possession of so-called "Religious Technology Center" (RTC) whose offices are in Los Angeles, which was bequeathed all rights to his creations by founder Hubbard. The word "Narconon," in contrast, is a trade mark in the possession of ABLE International.
Helnwein & Scientology, Lies & Treason by Peter Reichelt, 1997 - Page 131 Scientology member "Celebrity" magazine is distributed from "The Church of Scientology, Celebrity Centre International, 5930 Franklin Ave., Hollywood, California,"
a place which is very well known to Gottfried Helnwein and his wife Renate from many personal visits, and not just between 1988 and 1993.
One can find the Scientology hotel at the same address as the editorial staff of "Celebrity"; it is the "Manor Hotel,"
(King Ludwig says "Hi"), a five-star luxury hotel under business management of the Scientology Church International (SCI). That is where the Helnwein family's "main support point" is during their visits to Los Angeles, which sometimes last several weeks.
According to statements made by local hotel staff in August 1996, it is also possible for other prominent Scientologists, not just John Travolta and Tom Cruise, but also for Priscilla Presley, to not only admire Gottfried Helnwein's art work which is on display there, but also to commercially acquire it.
On page 12 of this "Celebrity" issue of spring 1990, it states revealingly in black and white that the painter Helnwein is an extraordinarily generous "big spender" for the Scientology organization of Narconon:
[from photocopy: Renowned fine artist Gottfried Helnwein donated a great deal of art to the cause of Narconon (R) Chilocco New Life Center in Oklahoma. From the sold donated pieces, over $150,000 was donated to Chilocco (which will be one of the world's largest drug rehabilitation centers when it opens).] "Celebrity" magazine announced that Helnwein donated his art work for the "Narconon" Scientology organization - 1990
Helnwein & Scientology, Lies & Treason by Peter Reichelt, 1997 - Page 132 In this over two square kilometer large institution is a highly controversial drug therapy center ("We declare war on all drugs") which uses Scientology healing methods developed by Ron Hubbard which are dubious, and not just in the USA, which will house, after construction, over 500 full-time "SC staff" and more than 1,000 people who are suffering from drug addiction. Thanks to the generous financial support of famous Scientologists like Helnwein, the highly controversial "Chilocco" center has been ceremoniously opened on June 29, 1990 in the presence of over 1,500 invited top Scientologists from the entire world, in a whirlwind two day celebration near the small town of Newkirk. At the wish of the PR department director Jessica Byrnes - like her friend Renate Helnwein a long-term "patron" of the IAS whose financial assistance helped to fill up the war chest of the worldwide OSA operation - the opening speaker of the Chilocco "New Life Center," the renowned long-established promoter of Scientology ideals, Hubbard admirer and management U.N. staff member in New York City, is to be the Austrian Dr. Hans Janitschek - he is the president of the International Writers Society. His longtime friend, Renate Helnwein, is to take over the execution of this difficult mission. Whether she will be successful remains to be seen.
