In the wake of my blogs about the strange goings on in Antarctica lately, several people shared more information about the southern polar continent's list of visitors, and a very strange list it is indeed. And I thought I'd pass along their findings to the readership here, along with a few remarks and high octane speculations of my own. For example, Mr. D.A. sent along the following list; among the list of visitors to Antarctica, we may now add the fact that former President Bill Clinton visited the Christ Church, New Zealand "Deep Freeze" Base in that city:


Notably, according to this short article, President Clinton spoke via telephone to the American McMurdo base in Antarctica.

But wait... there's more.

The list also includes Great Britain's Prince Harry:

Prince Harry and the Royal Family in the South Pole

According to this article, the visit was a "charity function" for wounded soldiers:

In November 2013, Prince Harry joined one of three teams of wounded servicemen and women to trek to the geographic South Pole for Walking With the Wounded South Pole Allied Challenge.

The three seven-man teams from the UK, Commonwealth and USA departed London for Cape Town on Sunday 17th November to acclimatise at Novolazarevskaya Station, Antarctica.

The expedition to the South Pole began from 87° south on 30th November, with the teams reaching the geographic South Pole on 13th December.

The teams of service personnel, all of whom have physical or cognitive injuries, represented and raised funds for military charities from the constituent nations: Soldier On (Canada); Soldier On (Australia); Soldiers to Summits (United States); and Walking With The Wounded (United Kingdom).

Due to the hostile conditions and the nature of the injuries involved, the expedition teams were followed by a support team, who were on hand in case of emergencies.

Trekking around 15km to 20km per day, the teams endured temperatures as low as -45°C and 50mph winds as they pull their pulks (custom built arctic sledges), each weighing in excess of 70kg, towards the southernmost point on the globe.

As with previous Walking With The Wounded expeditions, the South Pole Allied Challenge aims to highlight the extraordinary courage and determination of the men and women who have been wounded while serving their countries and to draw attention to the need to help in their career transition.

Stop and ponder that one for a moment: a trip to Antarctica to "highlight the extraordinary courage and determination of the men and women who have been wounded while serving their countries and to draw attention to the need to help in their career transition." Uh huh... I know that that event certainly stuck in my mind and made me think immediately of how hard career transitions are for wounded soldiers. Frankly, a parade down main street would have been more effective, and therefore I question the story, not that the expedition didn't happen, but rather, I question the explanation of why it happened.

Oh, and before he left with his entourage, Prince Harry of course spent a little time at the Palace meeting with his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II at a reception:

Before they set off, The Walking With The Wounded teams and Prince Harry met The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh at a reception at Buckingham Palace as they made their final preparations for the 200 mile expedition.

Now, if you're like me, you will suspect that there was probably a bit more going on here than just a "reception" with grandmum and granddad.

And then finally, we have King Juan Carlos and his Queen making a little trek through the Straits of Magellan on a Chilean navy vessel, before the King "fulfilled an ambition" by visiting Antarctica in 2004:


Now, if you're keeping royal Antarctica score cards here, that marks the British Royal House, and the Spanish Royal House, as visitors to the continent, and (just for kicks) let's recall that the House of Windsor, or better put, the House of Saxe-Coburg und Gotha has its own multifaceted connections to the old houses of Hannover, Welf-Este, and of course, the house of Hohenzollern for all you Kaiser Wilhelm II fans.  And if we really want to poke around in the family archives a bit, we'd have to include at least historic connections with the House of Orange as well. And the Spanish royal house, similarly, has its own multifaceted historical and biological connections to the Bourbon-Poissons in France, and to the Hapsburgs. One has to wonder, therefore, what the Antarctica gossip was around the royal dinner tables in London and Madrid and in Germany, France, and Austria.

All we're missing here is a visit by the Romanovs, but given all the other high strangeness, perhaps we can figure that Patriarch Kiril's visit might have been that of a "representative."

So adding it all up, we have the following increasingly strange and bizarre list of people that have either visited, or have been connected to, Antarctica:

1)  Rudolf Hess (sponsor of 1938-39 Nazi Expedition);

2) Herman Goering(sponsor of 1938-39 Nazi Expedition);

3) Admiral Richard Byrd, visitor, leader of Operation High Jump, 1947, who makes strange remarks for El Mercurio of Santiago de Chile about the USA preparing to defend against "enemy fighters that can fly from pole to pole with tremendous speed";

4) Russian Orthodox Patriarch of Moscow, Kiril III (visitor), to bless an Orthodox chapel;

5) US Secretary of State John Kerry, visitor, to learn about "climate change" (so we're told);

6) Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 Moon astronaut, visitor, who tweets about getting ready to "go to the launchpad", who then has to be evacuated and quarantined;

7) Prince Harry of Great Britain, visitor on a "charity" junket to highlight wounded soldiers and difficult career transitions;

8) King Juan Carlos of Spain, visitor, who wants to fulfill a "lifelong ambition" to see beautiful, scenic Antarctica.

And as if all this were not enough, Buzz Aldrin allegedly tweeted "We are all in danger. It is evil itself," (Astronaut Buzz Aldrin Tweets "We are all in Danger. It is evil itself") apparently in reference to the alleged pyramid-mountain found on the continent. I cannot help but to indulge in a little tangential high octane speculation here, since having proposed the most outlandish pyramid theory of them all, namely, that the Great Pyramid may have been built as a weapon of some sort.  So if that really is a pyramid down there, and if Aldrin really tweeted that, then one might perhaps be looking at either another such case, or at the original. But, as I said before, I have my doubts about this Antarctic pyramid story(See


See what do we have when one adds up this list? Very clearly, to draw this many people of high position - kings, a prince, a head diplomat, a couple of highly placed Nazis, an admiral, an astronaut and an Orthodox Patriarch - to the continent, something is clearly going on (not the least of which is that "word is getting around in high places"), something requiring the scrutiny, or at least, the presence, of such people. What might it be? Again, I suspect that someone, or something, or perhaps both, has been found. Aldrin's alleged statement about "evil" places Kiril's prior trip to the continent in an interesting perspective, for of course there were all those stories on the internet that the Saudis(!) had "found something" at the Grand Mosque of Mecca(!) and wanted the Russians(!) to take it to Antarctica and "get rid of it", which Kiril promptly did after performing "ancient rituals" over it. Of course, I don't buy that story for a moment. But Aldrin's comment - if true - does place Kiril's presence there into a suggestive context, one suggesting that perhaps there was some kernel of truth the in the wild Saudi-Grand Mosque-Russia story. If indeed there was some "unspeakable" evil there, than that would go a long way to explain why Herren Hess und Goering had an interest, though it would not explain how they learned of it; did they know something prior to the Nazi expedition? And if so, how? Or did they learn of it afterwards? Did their aircraft, as they were flying over the continent and making photographic surveys, snap a photo of the "pyramid" and work Hess, Himmler, and Goering into a lather?

While we're indulging in all these high octane speculative questions, let's throw all caution to the winds, and recall that first X Files movie, which had Agent Mulder trekking to Antarctica, with the Cigarette Smoking Man hot on his trail behind him, to rescue agent Scully. Lo and behold a massive UFO-flying saucer hidden beneath the ice suddenly activates (for reasons we're not really sure of) and flies off. Apparently, in this one instance, the "truth" was not "out there", but rather, "down there" for Agents Scully and Mulder. Silliness for a certainty. But as I pointed out in the very last section of my book Nazi International, amateur German seismologists were picking up extraordinarily large long waves literally crawling all over their seismographs of the continent, almost as if something or someone was using the planet itself to broadcast...something. And of course, I theorized in my speculations about the Great Pyramid that it utilizes precisely such longitudinal wave forms.

So what's my bottom line speculation here? It has not changed since I first posted about Secretary Kerry's visit, and about Aldrin's: something or someone - and my bet is on something - has been found down there, something probably very old, something perhaps very sophisticated, and something perhaps indicating a someone else, whether from here or just perhaps from elsewhere.

    Here is the website of David Wilcock’s Divine Cosmos where he details on why there is so much interest in Antarctica. He also goes into details from a whistleblower who was part of the secret space program. I’m convinced that what they have found is indeed an ancient advanced civilization under the ice and they are preparing the ground work for a partial disclosure. If true the disclosure will be earth shattering.

    My comment went to hell.

    • Robert Barricklow on December 13, 2016 at 7:34 pm

      So this sensitive bot who demands self censorship is another kind of evil that flies in the dead, goes unseen, yet achieves its deadly aim?
      For my verboden comment addressed this so-called evil that’s been living under ice.

    • Robert Barricklow on December 13, 2016 at 7:59 pm

      So let’s just do a little Murrow moral here.
      He lamented on what had happened to TV –
      its deep embrace of advertising that resulted in a kind of self-imposed[sometimes sponsor imposed] censorship] of anything too downbeat, dark or challenging-which was systematically suppressed, for fear of contradicting the upbeat, optimistic commercial message of TV sponsors.
      The internet has been commercialized, subject to laws and in my mind’s eye, its censorship is currently being subjected to mission creep…. BIG TIME.
      The Camel’s bot nose.

      This is not directed to Dr. Farrell.
      This is directed at those who have taken something that freed many from the monopoly of information distribution and participation. It has thus become a battlefield in information warfare, and is only going to get worse, as the PTB push back against the open source movement of individuals sharing, contributing, and participating world in the information age.
      Evil wants to enclose this promising information age
      just as was/is beginning to blossom.

    This evil Buzz reminds of the Vatican reviewing the last Star Wars movie and complaining that the evil it portrayed was lame. Now there’s plenty of evil history in those royal blood lines. I/m thinking perhaps it’s like Google’s/Do No Evil[we don’t want the competition].
    Is there some kind of evil exclusivity evil clause that something stepping on?

  6. Roger on December 13, 2016 at 6:19 pm

    I have a feeling going to Antarctica or having been to Antarctica is sort of a social status among the more adventurous elite right now. There might be something down there to visit and see that only the top rank (IN crowd) is allowed to visit and know about or there may not be anything special down there. But whether or not anything fantastical is actually hidden down there may depend on how strongly each of us chooses or happens to vibrate most strongly towards that potential. Choose your path wisely before opening one of the various doors to various potentials concerning this place.

    • goshawks on December 13, 2016 at 9:25 pm

      Roger, you bring-up an interesting point. Many mystical disciples (including scientific; see Sheldrake) refer to intent and attraction as keys to bringing something into the world. Manifestation, in a literal sense. There has been enormous emotional pressure (including psychic) to GET ON with things. (Disclosure.) I wonder if Antarctica is a ‘manifestation-point’ for all this ‘energy’…

      • Roger on December 14, 2016 at 1:20 am

        It could be. There are many potentials we collectively and/or individually can manifest or be drawn into by our path both chosen and happenstance. I’ve studied a lot of mystical, philosophical and gnostic writings and musings over the years and saw how many of the parables and writings could correspond to a lost science and understanding of reality and it’s potential multi-dimensional nature. I practiced my own form of gnosis by rejecting everything I had ever learned or thought I new about everything and tried to start fresh like a new born. I trusted the Universal and Multiversal consciousness would reveal to me what ever I sought with all my heart and mind and given enough passion and mental musings I believe I was gifted with a lot of unique insights. Passion, desire and the mental searching with the third eye and use of the potential higher mind to find higher knowledge seems to open a connection to higher consciousness and gifts to of higher knowledge and understanding. From this vantage point I did some experimentation on dimension shifting to higher potentials and the results were mixed because my desire to succeed was mixed. The implications of all this if followed too far can cause one to become lost or trapped in a rabbit hole they may not find too comfortable or pleasing in the long run. Forgetfulness, new beginnings, and not being in total control and unforeseeable randomness is as much a prize as it’s opposite total enlightenment, transendance, and immortality. The grass always eventually appears greener on the other side no matter what side of the illusion you are currently on.

        • goshawks on December 14, 2016 at 3:26 am

          An excellent capsule-summary of the gnostic/mystical path! Yep, half of the game is being able to ‘handle’ and ‘ground’ the insights we have been given. Stretch, relax, stretch, relax…

        • Sandygirl on December 14, 2016 at 8:51 pm

    Jim Stone – Dec 13 2016

    “Remember what I said about pyramids in Antarctica?

    Today, the discovery of a massive civilization under the ice in Antarctica was on the front page of Drudge. The only way this could happen is if the pole shifts I have talked about before are a reality. And I have always thought Atlantis was Antarctica. But have not said that until now, because absent any proof of a civilization that was once there it would sound kooky.

    To be clear, this is how it happens: First, the magnetic poles flip. This does not happen often on earth, (once every 10, 000 years or so) but in other celestial bodies like the sun, it happens very often (once every few years). This is because the earth’s core is more viscous than the core of the sun, so it takes more time for magnetic arrangements to change.

    However, when they do change, the earth’s crust is magnetized north/south. So when the magnetic poles flip, the crust of the earth slowly re-positions itself to align with the new magnetic arrangement. The liquid core physically stays where it is, only the crust on the surface moves. And that will and has put Antarctica in a habitable zone more than once before.

    Gee, climate change is REAL! Antarctica can be downright balmy at times!. I’d like to see that happen, but I’ll be dead before whatever is in Antarctica ever.”

    Dec 6 2016
    “ALL celestial bodies, and I mean ALL OF THEM that have molten cores and magnetic fields, have the magnetic poles flip occasionally. The sun flips a lot. The earth flips a lot less frequently due to the fact that the core materials are colder and thicker and less likely to have that change. But it does change. There is evidence of it at the bottom of the Atlantic ocean, which has a zone where the magnetism in the rocks changes direction in a repeatable predictable pattern that could only have happened if the earth’s magnetic poles flipped during periods of continental drifting as magma came up to fill the cracks.

    Predominantly however, the Earth’s crust is magnetized in one direction. And when the magnetic poles flip, there is enough of a pull on the crust to move Antarctica and the north pole to the equator. The fossil records prove this happens because there is life in the fossils that could not possibly be there any other way. The magnetic arrangement at the bottom of the Atlantic proves it happens. The earth is a lot more dynamic than people think. Yes, Mexico has been at the North Pole before.

    Would it happen in our lifetime? Probably not so fast it all moved in even a century. But a thousand years? YES.

    I don’t think many people realize just how strong the earth’s magnetic field pulls on things. It pulls VERY hard. Want proof? Take any round magnet and place it edge up on a smooth surface (balanced like a coin on edge.) It will only face one way. You will not be able to get it to face any direction other than an alignment with the magnetic poles of the earth. As soon as you let go of it, it will flip to align with the earth’s magnetic field. That is how a compass works, and it proves the earth really does have a super strong magnetic field.

    YES, magnetized continents floating on a liquid lava ocean (which is how the world is made) really will also flip, just like that magnet. And there probably really are, as a result, pyramids in Antarctica.”

    • goshawks on December 13, 2016 at 4:46 pm

      End of Dec 13 mini-article should read (oops):

      “Gee, climate change is REAL! Antarctica can be downright balmy at times!. I’d like to see that happen, but I’ll be dead before whatever is in Antarctica ever gets a chance to thaw out. There is no indication the magnetic poles are going to completely flip any time soon.”

    • Coral on December 13, 2016 at 9:21 pm

      You might be interested in knowing that Edgar Cayce, the Amerian sleeping prophet, spoke about pole reversals.

    • James on December 13, 2016 at 10:30 pm

      How can you be sure the core is molten and not simply a “Plasma?” Think physics….. centripetal force. Would a molten or heavy mass remain centralized in a rotatonally spinning body or move to periphery?

  11. Centauri on December 13, 2016 at 1:34 pm

    Greetings, good doctor! Pretty soon here, it’s gonna be showtime! Let’s get a little strange. Dismiss or consider, as always!

    The Ancient Group of Assholes are giving tours to their friends of some old, high-tech junk made by a bunch of castaways. They think that rolling out ancient cities to the public is going to divert attention away from their ugly practices. “What kids? What money? Check this out!”

    I’d suspect that ol’ Buzz was to test the reaction of the common folk. Flying over an operational base with swastikas all over the architecture and a dozen impossibly-built spacecraft probably spooked him good! “Mind wipe; send the fellow home. Maybe we should put the nazi base out of sight and create an archeological dig setting for the plebs to watch on the boob tube”.

    So, the bad guys (AGA) think they got their ace in the hole. They are sooo sure that they can maintain SOME of their secrecy regarding their other “friends”, their other tech, and keep a stranglehold on they way earth humans percieve reality. Gotta feed the 5D entity… but not so fast!

    Be sure that the good guys are weaving their own plans to dismantle that laaaast ditch effort. ‘Cause we’re gonna get the whole reality, not just their calculated scraps.

    So when they say that “we miraculously discovered a structure 30,000+ years old”, ask ’em about the base underneath THAT one that’s almost a couple billion years old!

    When they trot out a couple human-looking E.T.s saying that those “are all the aliens out there”, ask ’em about their not-so-human-looking buddies!

    Above all, when they say that those E.T.s “practice the true mystic religion and you should too”… just laugh at ’em. Realize your true spirit and throw away all doctrines!

    Man… that certainly did get strange at the end, there. Anyways, I appreciate the website, doc!

    Strange language regarding Antarctica has been showing up in web bot data since first reports. Jim Sinclair and Clif High discuss it in much greater detail than the stories sited above. I can’t help but think there should be some dot connecting between missing HUD monies, the navy and John Kerry regarding Antarctica. Here is the link to that interview from Nov. 30th

  15. Neru on December 13, 2016 at 10:39 am

    Others have noticed the visits to Antarctica too. Go to 59 minutes point :
    Germans have infiltrated like mad and are over-represented. Is there any Royal family left not linked to the Saxe-Coburg und Gotha?

    • DanaThomas on December 13, 2016 at 1:45 pm

      Royal tidbits. Let’s not forget that curious Norwegian interest in Antarctica. In 1992 QUEEN SONJA of Norway became the first queen, and in 2015 KING HARALD the world’s first reigning monarch, to visit the place. His grandmother, Maud of Wales (of Queen Maud Land fame) was the youngest daughter of Edward VII, and thus Saxe-Coburg. Former King Juan Carlos, representative of the Bourbons – both the Spanish and French branches – is one quarter Battenberg (known in Britain as “Mountbatten”). The only major European royal family without a recent Saxe-Coburg connection are the Savoys, but they do not seem to be in the “magic circle” (though the Duke of the Abruzzi mounted an expedition to the NORTH pole in 1899). I don’t know if any of the Lichtensteins have been to Antarctica; they have their own “magic circle” with dynastic intermarriages, a Hapsburg connection and more recently in the case of the present Hereditary Prince, a Wittelsbach (Welf) marriage.
      We might imagine that there have been other off the radar visits by various royals. Maybe it’s time to write a Report on the Royal Reach in Antarctica…

    Since movies were brought up, and I subscribe to the theory that real information is often broadcast through the arts, let’s include “Iron Sky,” “Alien vs. Predator,” and “The Thing” (both versions). All involve finding pyramids, ancient structures and “ultimate evil” on the southern continent. One could assume that these and other films are planting memes, but one could also argue that they are acclimating us to something, as well.

      I’ve got to vote for the “Iron Sky” scenario.. Too much Deutschland Uber Alles evidence in the mix. What those forces have morphed into in 70 yrs is anyone’s guess. We have no idea who are what they were collaborating with via the Vril damen. How Germany went from biplanes to jets and beyond in under two decades is circumstantial proof of contact with an advanced civ. If not, what were they smoking??? Whether they are ET’s or UT (Ultra Terrestrials) from a different dimension is anyone’s guess. But, the parade of Star Power to the Southern Pole, has to pique one’s curiosity.

      I’d like to add Jon Carter (of Mars) to the Movie list. Where they introduce the Thern.. Extra-dimensional, extra-corporeal beings that feed on human misery.. So, lets see: Iron Sky, Jon Carter, Alien vs. Predator and The Thing.. It appears we may be in for a wild ride. Eeeeeehaaaa!

      • goshawks on December 13, 2016 at 5:41 pm

        Aridzonan_13, you caused me to look up the Therns. I had read the Burroughs books as a kid, and had never thought-of the Therns as truly “extra-dimensional, extra-corporeal beings.” Claiming, yes; actual, no. When I saw the movie, something didn’t jibe…

        The Therns are apparently not even mentioned in Burroughs’ first John Carter novel, “A Princess of Mars, ” only being introduced in Burroughs’ second JC novel, “The Gods of Mars.” They are only one of several groups ‘claiming’ to be gods, and not even a central plot device…

        From Wikipedia (about Burroughs’ 2nd JC novel, “The Gods of Mars”):

        “Carter and Tars Tarkas discover that the Therns, a white-skinned race of self-proclaimed gods, have for eons deceived the Barsoomians elsewhere by disseminating that the pilgrimage to the Valley Dor is a journey to paradise. Most arrivals are killed by the beasts of Valley, and the survivors enslaved or eaten by Therns.”

        “Carter is taken before Issus, the self-proclaimed goddess of Barsoom, who dictates the Therns through secret communications which they mistake for divine revelation.”

        “…the Black Pirates, called the ‘First Born’, also think of themselves as gods, and accordingly prey upon the Therns.”

        “Near Omean, Carter is challenged first by the Therns; secondly by Zat Arras; and lastly by the First Born, whereupon Carter causes the Therns and First Born to fight one another…”

        So, the people behind the movie writers/scripters decided to transform the Therns from fully-corporeal, self-proclaimed ‘gods’ to near-real ‘gods’: “Extra-dimensional, extra-corporeal beings that feed on human misery.” Why would they take such ‘license’ with Burroughs’ work? The (real-world) plot thickens…

          I too read the Burroughs in my school days. Started with all the Tarzans, to Barsoom, to Pellucidar, and finally Venus. Mars & Tarzan were the best!

          • goshawks on December 14, 2016 at 3:33 am

            RB, wow! Not too many people even know about the Pellucidar and Venus novels. Kindred spirits…

        The Germans were exceptional in their application of technology. Bi plane to jets in 20 years, I never looked it that way, impressive. Even among their other developments.

        Look at the F-35 development timeline which ~20 years and counting. My god that is a boondoggle / outright embezzlement scheme. You can’t be that shitty in the information age, with computers!
        Abort the F-35 already, please.

    If “evil itself” has been uncovered in Antarctica then it is to e expected that you will get these jet set gawkers who are always on the look out for some new kind of evil. How many kids can you abuse, kill and sell as hamburger meat to fast food chains before you get bored? The well heeled depraved ones will always be on the lookout for a new wicked thrill. (Conversely, a true holy man like Patriarch Kiril will always be on the lookout to thwart evil). Moreover, while I don’t believe Antarctica is the former Atlantis, as I believe Atlantis is exactly where Plato said it to be, the European monarch, with their genetic ties to Atlantis via the semitic Phoenicians and all their Mediterranean offshoots, may be curious to see if it is. It is like the descendants of immigrants paying a visit to the old country. In this case, they will be looking for those tell tale markers among the ruins that might signify kinship with these ancient Antarctic people. Sacrificial altars, child graves, torture implements, or maybe high tech gadgets like weather and earthquake machines or infectious disease laboratories. Imagine the royals amusement when they discover that their ancient forebears used to also while away the time unleashing destruction on the pathetic rabble?

      Regarding Buzz Aldrin’s tweet “we are all in danger, it is evil itself,” it could have been in reference to Hillary Clinton and not the pyramidical mountain. Possibly he uploaded the wrong picture after waking from a terrible nightmare about Hillary. Or maybe he actually encountered Hillary in Antarctica while she was secretly down there seeking favor from the clandestine IG Farben board of directors and imploring them to put her back in power.

      • Vomito Blanco on December 13, 2016 at 10:23 am

        If there really is evil in Antarctica, it won’t be long before the Hollywood crowd starts washing up on Antarctica’s shores.

      • Freefall on December 13, 2016 at 4:27 pm

        LMAO !!!

    • Vomito Blanco on December 13, 2016 at 10:26 am

      If Trump’s Secretary of State pick gets confirmed (assuming the CIA doesn’t engineer a coup against Trump) we may also have to start focusing on what lies below the Arctic Ocean and along its frozen shores. Hyperborea anyone?

      • goshawks on December 13, 2016 at 4:57 pm

        Yeah, that’s interesting. Good point…

  19. WalkingDead on December 13, 2016 at 9:47 am

    While I seriously have my doubts about this piece of “news”, there is this little tidbit of psyop nonsense:
    Designed, no doubt, for the alt media, in the intelligence backed “war on truth” psyop now proceeding apace against free speech. The Buzz Aldrin “tweet” may also be part of this, it’s certainly easy enough to accomplish.
    I’m more in line with those who think something ancient has been discovered which tends to negate the mainstream time line of human development and indicates an ancient advanced civilization once existed. It’s not like enough evidence isn’t already found on every other continent; and I’m reasonably certain it exists on Antarctica as well, and may be better preserved and still quasi functional. You just don’t pick up pyramids and move them off planet, but you can disable them by removing key elements of their construction.
    We can speculate all we like, no truth will be forthcoming any time soon.

    • basta on December 13, 2016 at 10:08 am

      But you already have that massive, staggeringly well-preserved and well-documented proof staring you in the face at Giza.

      And think about it, what kind of evidence is going to survive tens of thousands of years of massive glaciation and ice sheets, which scraped much of North America to bedrock in the last ice age?

      At Giza, it’s all there, intact, in a perfectly preserved desert environment.

      I just don’t buy all this. Antarctica just pushes all the right buttons and gets the over-imaginative all in a tizzy and a froth.

    • Roger on December 13, 2016 at 6:32 pm

      The elite like to visit this site and get a kick out of our responses no doubt. It appears they be trying to take some of our high octane conjectures mainstream by doing similar articles as this site’s topics and views mainstream.

  20. Kahlypso on December 13, 2016 at 9:24 am

    I remain convinced that the Antarctican Pyramids will be step pyramids.
    Will have to come back later..

    • Roger on December 13, 2016 at 6:37 pm

      From the photos I just think their mountain peaks. But if rapid continental drift during pole shifts does occur then there might be some interesting structures and artifacts to be found there.

  21. sagat1 on December 13, 2016 at 9:01 am

    It’s The Thing…

    • Kahlypso on December 13, 2016 at 9:25 am

      STILL waiting for a sequel.. Darn you Carpenter!!

  22. Eve Leung on December 13, 2016 at 7:54 am

    LOL all they need now is the Chairman of China and the Emperor of Japan to make final confirmation.

  23. basta on December 13, 2016 at 7:52 am

    I honestly think that you are NOT on to something with Antarctica, and all this is uncomfortably close to the likes of hollow earth theory and Hannibau bases in Shangri-la caves manned by Nazi greys and Tibetan monks.

    I think what the evidence shows is that there are indeed some advanced outposts down there far from prying eyes doing some interesting things doubtless, but a vast majority of what you are tagging as suspicious activity is actually elite adventure-junketing of the 21st century, much like rich Americans would vacation at Cap Ferrat in the twenties, or the Brits started climbing Tibetan peaks in the 30s. They did it #1 because they could — the areas were newly accessible, and #2 they were fantastically exotic. They were not at all easy to get to, and very costly as well, only adding to their allure.

    So that is why the likes of Aldrin, Prince Harry and Kerry are down there — just look at the common profile created by those three — consciously cultivating a public persona as leaders and adventurers.

    Of course they’d go to Antarctica –> because they can. <–

    • justawhoaman on December 13, 2016 at 1:19 pm

      Looking at the list of people, basta, I would agree with your conclusion about “because they can” ALL with the exception of Ketchup Kerry whose trip was far too close to the election for that trip to even make any sense, and his trip was without real (reported) purpose, and Patriarch Kiril, likewise, is an odd addition to the elite visit just because he could go there. As Dr. Farrell has pointed out repeatedly, ANY priest could have blessed the orthodox chapel so why have the leader of the orthodoxy brave the elements, summer or not, in such a harsh climate? (Having lived where it gets -40F in winter, I just have to look at pictures of the Antarctic and my feet start to get cold!)

      Something is going on down there and, evil or not, we won’t be getting anything but fake news about it for a long time. That is my prediction.

      • basta on December 13, 2016 at 4:15 pm

        I think Kerry went there then because he knew he would be leaving the post of SoS shortly in any event, so why not go there on the gubmint dime when you’re an obvious lame duck? I think the timing speaks more to that than anything about the election, which he was extraneous to in any event.

        As for Kiril, that was about the Russians making sure that everyone else going down there knows that they too have an interest in the place. It was planting the flag, as it were, a statement of engagement. Politics, in short.

        Because clearly Antarctica is in play geopolitically, and I suspect that most of what is going on down there under cover of science is actually high-tech prospecting. That’s why the secrecy, and why it’s such a high-profile scramble to get down there. Grabbing resources, staking claims, despite what the “do not touch” treaties say (when has anyone ever respected a treaty?).

        It’s nonsense to think that any remnants of ancient tech survived tens of thousands of years beneath crushing glacial ice sheets. As I said above, sheesh! just go to Giza. It’s all already all there, in a nice warm, dry climate.

    • Roger on December 13, 2016 at 6:40 pm

      That’s what I suspect as well.

    Queen Maxima of The Netherlands comes from Argentina!! She had a career in banking, of course. Nowadays she gives speeches to the UN on matters of inclusive finance.

    Her family had such a murky history in Argentina, they were banned from attending the royal wedding.

    Maxima and her husband make occasional visits to Argentina for R&R. We might not (yet) be aware of them visiting Antarctica, but while speculating about Nazis, and dictators, and remembering Prince Bernhardt’s sympathies, it’s possible they took a detour from family holidays and made secret visits down south as well.

    Here’s a snippet from Wikipedia: “The news of the couple’s relationship and eventual marriage plans caused controversy in the Netherlands, due to the involvement of Máxima’s father Jorge Zorreguieta as a cabinet minister during the National Reorganization Process, the latest Argentinian dictatorship. Her father’s tenure as a minister took place during the beginning stages of the Dirty War, a period of repression that saw 10,000–30,000 people killed or disappeared during the seven-year military regime. At the request of the States General, Michiel Baud, a Dutch professor in Latin American studies, carried out an inquiry into the involvement of Zorreguieta in the Dirty War (roughly, 1974-83). Zorreguieta claimed that, as a civilian, he was unaware of the Dirty War while he was a cabinet minister. Baud determined that Máxima’s father had not been directly involved in any of the numerous atrocities that took place during that period. However, Baud also concluded that Zorreguieta was almost certainly aware of them; in Baud’s view, it was highly unlikely that a cabinet minister would not have known about them.[11] Even so, his possible presence at the royal wedding was debated for several months.[12]”

    I’d wager that King Willem Alexander and Queen Maxima would be prime candidates for reconnaissance of the southern continent. The European Royals wouldn’t want the British, uh, Germans to have it to themselves.
