In last Thursday's News and Views from the Nefarium I spoke about the strangeness going on in Earth's polar continent, Antarctica, and the strange visitors there over the past few months. It began with the visit of Russian Orthodox Patriarch of Moscow Kirill III, a visit followed by Secretary of State John Kerry, at the height of the American presidential election, which also occurred during an otherwise predominantly diplomatic tour. Then, as I noted in the News and Views, this was followed by the most recent visit of former Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who had to be medically evacuated (so we're told), as his "condition" had "deteriorated."

We were not, of course, informed that Mr. Aldrin even had a "condition", much less from what it had "deteriorated." Aldrin does follow a string of such medical evacuations, which similarly we're told little about after the fact.

All of this only highlights the strangeness of the southernmost continent, and of the strange list of people associated with it. As I pointed out in last Thursday's News and Views, this list of "top people" associated with Antarctica now includes the following very bizarre list: Rudolf Hess, Nazi Party Reichsleiter; Hermann Goering, Reichsmarschal and founder of the Luftwaffe, both of whom played sponsoring roles for the Nazi expedition to the continent in 1938-1939; Admiral Richard Byrd, who, incidentally, had been flown to Nazi Germany to brief the expedition on conditions it could expect, and who led the Operation Highjump in 1947. The outcome of that expedition, and Admiral Byrd's strange remarks at the end of it to the Chilean newspaper El Mercuio, need not be rehearsed again here. Then, in the past few months, we've see added to this list Patriarch Kiril III, the only Christian bishop and hierarch ever to visit the continent, followed within a few months by John Kerry, the highest-ranking political figure ever to visit there short of a head of state, and now, Buzz Aldrin, moon astronaut.  Hess, Goering, Byrd, Kiril, Kerry, and Aldrin. The list could not be more bizarre.  All that's missing would seem to be visits of the Queen, the Japanese Emperor, the Pope, the Dalai and Panchen Lamas, a couple ayatollahs, a Grand Rabbi, a yoga or two, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and Benito Mussolini's heirs. And at this stage, I wouldn't be surprised to find any of them making a sudden "tourist visit."

But there's been more to this odd story that has been brought to my attention since Thursday's News and Views, this time by Mr. J.H., who shared the following tweet from Mr. Aldrin himself:

Buzz Aldrin's Tweet prior to departure for Antarctica

The words themselves are simple, yet thought-provoking:

We're ready to go to Antarctica! May be our last opportunity to tweet for a few days! We're go for departure to the launchpad!

Of course, these words can be read for what they are: nothing significant, just a retired astronaut using the rhetorical language of a thrilling departure for an exciting voyage in terms he's accustomed to.

But equally, in my penchant for high octane speculation, and given their wider context of "strange people associated with Antarctica," the words "go for departure to the launchpad" could be seen in a very different way, for they can be taken to imply that Antarctica is some sort of "launchpad." This of course conjures all the strange myths of UFOs(Nazi or otherwise), outlandish hollow earth theories, and other arcana associated with the southern continent. lest I be misunderstood, I'm not a subscriber to the Nazi-survival-and-secret-UFO-research-base-in-Antarctica theory, and certainly not a subscriber to the standard "hollow earth" theories, but the language is strange, in a continent associated with strangeness. Aldrin's choice of words only highlight, rather than diminish, the strangeness of the place, the events, and the people associated with it.

But there's more; according to this article shared by Ms. B.Z.,  it seems that early on in the Obama Administration, President Obama proposed extending current treaty agreements about tourism to Antarctica, and wanted to limit tourism to the continent, and hey, it's high on pretty much everyone's list as a tourist destination:

Obama Calls for Limits on Tourism to Antarctica

Host(ess) of the Arctic and Antarctic conferences? Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Apparently Mr. Aldrin and Secretary Kerry didn't get that email (perhaps Wikileaks did). But after all, they're not ordinary "tourists" by any stretch of the imagination. Neither are Admiral Byrd, or Patriarch Kiril(who also apparently didn't get that email).

This is another case of "you tell me," but it seems fairly clear that the high strangeness associated with the place at least since Herrn Hess and Goering set their eyes on it hasn't abated. Something is going on down there, and it's high time we're told what it is. After all, they have nothing to fear, for having lied about magic bullets, the U.S.S. Maine and a whole host of other things, who would believe them anyway?

See you on the flip side...



  1. It seems there has been a lot of snow-cat activity at Neumayer Station over the last 36 hours (see Webcam photo below). I check this web cam every so often and I’ve never seen so many vehicles outside the station. I wonder if this has anything to do with Aldrin and Kerry’s recent visit? BTW they shut down both the 180 degree cameras. I wonder why?

    Still photo of snow cats…

    Time lapse video for last 24 hours shown in 10 minute increments on their web cam.

  2. Jim Stone weighs-in on Antarctica and possible pyramids:
    “Here’s the scoop: 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 in 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.”

  3. supposedly the 1st moon landings (Armstrong/Aldrin/Collins) never really took place and all 3 were coerced into a hoax (complete with filmed broadcasts- gosh!) to deceive the world (if so, it worked);

    at least according to the FILM we’ve been shown-

    Armstrong has died; am not sure about Collins’ terrestrial condition; but it seems Aldrin has been chosen as some sort of a manipulated, publicized conduit to go invitedly somewhere bizarre (Antarctica) and then leave on his own volition; I hardly doubt Aldrin was kicked-out;
    my unanswered question: if/IF the film footage of the 1st moon landing was faked (come on, all, if it WASN’T, who put the camera there to film Armstrong emerging from the module to begin with? and filmed the astronauts subsequently cavorting around from above???!!!)- please use logic-

    then research Jay Weidner on this subject-

    be well all-

  4. “….The planets are hollow from a still more logical standpoint. They were created by intelligent planning to support life and for the progression of various life forms. It follows that they would be designed for the most efficient operation. A hollow planet with caverns throughout its shell could support many times the amount of life, since it would have many times the surface area available than would a solid planet. More important, such a planet could be maneuvered into various positions (as they are at times) far more readily than if they were solid. The Logos, who created the planets, are far more intelligent than any human. Therefore, they would not be so stupid as to produce solid balls for planets, as an academic scientist would if he possessed the power to create a planet. They utilize every scrap of material. The changing of the position of planets by space ships with giant levitating beams will be discussed in Part III. This accounts for great changes in the Earth through the ages, including the great flood and other cataclysms…..” –Joseph H. Cater, “The Ultimate Reality”, pp 89-90

    There you have it….the Logos are NOT STUPID!

  5. I haven’t read the comments yet, but isn’t that where the infamous “Seed Vault” is? We’ve seen the same picture over and over again and it is encased in ice…… It is normal I think, for us ‘northerners,’ to think of a northern glacier. Maybe not………

  6. Most likely Buzz’s Martian themed shirt and launching jargon was just a pun on visiting a place on Earth that was a little like Mars. He was joking about launching off to Mars rather than mundanely flying to Antarctica to visit research stations conducting experiments on equipment that might be used on Mars someday. But high octane speculation is much more interesting.

  7. Perhaps what is at initial view of a medical emergency that would be perhaps understood and possible simply due to the combination of extreme environment and age synergistic compounding variables. One could argue that Buzz was trained to use his words exceedingly carefully, for a number of reasons. Necessity of a pilot and (ATC Air Traffic Control )as example. Controllers must maintain specific verbal nuance.
    What if his “Tweet” was too close to a verboten topic? The Aurora Australis Plasma layer makes a very BIG antenna.
    Do you think Psychotronic Modulation of Neurochemistry is possible?………
    I would venture to say yes beyond a shadow of a doubt. Perhaps this was a test and example?

  8. JPF: “…and certainly not a subscriber to the standard ‘hollow earth’ theories.”

    You know, this brings to mind ancient civilizations and CERN. I posted some days back about the effect of nano-scale black holes produced in particle collisions at CERN. If they evaporated in the vacuum before falling to the tube wall, no problem. If they made it to the tube wall before evaporating, a Big problem.

    Applying the above to ‘hollow earth’, a lot would depend on the ‘viscous’ effects or friction, as the growing black hole fell through the center of Earth and back. If those effects were enough, the black hole might diminish in its ‘orbit’ or ‘pendulum swing’ before eating the planet. There would be massive gravitational swings and resultant earthquakes, but the crust might hold…

    A second ‘variable’ is whether the growing black hole would retain the angular momentum it was born-with, as it pendulum-ed within Earth. If so, it might carve-out just two locations on the Earth’s surface and crust. (Anything fluid or deform-able – like the liquid core and portions of the mantle – would end up in the black hole.) If not, it would carve-out vaster portions of the mantle/crust, depending on how it’s ‘orbit’ changed.

    Putting the above together, something like a CERN-made nano-scale black hole could create a man-made ‘hollow earth’. If the crust held-together, you might have the classic description of a ‘hollow earth’: Two entrance-portals, vast empty spaces, and a ‘sun’ at the center. (I am assuming this black hole would have some kind of accretion-disk orbiting closely. An accretion-disk in star-type black holes heats up to incandescence due to friction between orbiting particles, giving off intense light. Voilà; a miniature ‘sun’.)

    Given that today’s humans may not have been the only advanced civilization on Earth over the eons, there is a possibility that Someone created a CERN-like facility and didn’t figure the black hole evaporation-rate quite right. Oops. Assuming the planet held-together after the black hole stabilized in the center of Earth, reports of a ‘hollow earth’ might have validity…

    1. Some scientists still do not embrace the ‘black hole theory’ as per the Stephen Hawking who talks through a computer for some years now and has been shown to be a fraud, apparently to replace the original.

      1. HAL838, Stephen Hawking only came up with ‘evaporating’ black holes, not general ‘black hole theory’. The latter dates back to an old solution to Einstein’s equations. Multiple avenues of astronomical evidence have confirmed the existence of black holes. (Not what happens inside toward the supposed singularity).

        Hawking’s insight (the original Hawking) was to apply quantum mechanics to Einstein’s relativity theory in such a way as to postulate that energy could be lost from the black hole over time. Big black holes would take many times the age of the universe to evaporate (assuming no incoming material), while nano-scale black holes would evaporate nearly instantly. This Hawking ‘black hole theory’ has not been scientifically-proven due to the lack of local black holes to test. I hope it stays that way…

  9. I can’t help thinking of Kubrick’s ‘2001 Space Odyssey’. The diplomatic trip to the moon, the cover story of a virus outbreak, and the role that the ‘monolith’ plays in the symbolic language of the film. Maybe they’ve discovered a ‘monolith’ down there? Remember that the moon has been considered as a ‘launchpad’ for industrial space-travel. Maybe they’ve discovered something in or about Antarctica that makes it an equally good ‘launchpad’?

    Kubrick has been known to leak the odd secret or two in his films.

    I wonder if Buzz was listening to ‘The Blue Danube’ on his flight down there.

    1. Just read Roger’s post below. So if Antarctica is to become the launchpad for the human race to start doing inter-planetary business, then we need to start re-negotiating the cosmic Treaty of Versailles — especially the quarantine zone.
      It’s interesting to note that in ‘2001 Space Oddysey’ the ‘monolith’ is encountered on the moon and then later prevents the astronaut’s entry into Jupiter. There are two versions of the ‘quarantined earth’ scenario, one puts the boundary at the orbit of the moon, the other at the asteroid belt … placing Jupiter off limits. In ‘Out of the Silent Planet’ Ransom says:
      “…I have seen Jupiter rising beyond the Asteroids and forty million miles nearer than he has ever been to earthly eyes. But the Malacandrians would say ‘within the Asteroids’, for they have an odd habit, sometimes of turning the solar system inside out. They call the Asteroids ‘dancers before the threshold of the Great Worlds’.”

      And if we’re renegotiating treaties, then we’ll need to talk about what kinds of technologies we can and can’t have, maybe the cousins want to be there as we develop it. Maybe Buzz went down there as someone experienced in space travel and known to be fully trustworthy. Perhaps that explains the reluctance to discuss his condition — he was guinea pig for a technology that hasn’t quite been gotten right and something went wrong.

    2. You make some good points since Clarke was known to keep to as much real science as possible, and Kubrick was known to keep secrets.

  10. I still think Antarctica’s coldest regions would be perfect to test large scale super conducting devices. Super conductors have zero electrical resistance and generators using super conductors and super conductor levitational properties in a vacuum to avoid mechanical resistance could theoretically spin at the speed of light and produce near infinite amount of electrical watts. An electro-magnetic cannon launch pad could easily be powered there at virtually no cost other than maintenance and personel requirements. Zero electrical resistance is likewise most likely a key to tapping into the unlimited electrical potential of the so called zero field to power who knows what kind theoretical syify type devices requiring much more wattage then any other Earthly generator is capable of providing. The hole in the magnetic field at the South pole may be a key to avoiding electro-magnetic resistance and interference in launches or super conducting hops from Earth’s naturally occurring super conducting connection strings between Earth’s south magnetic pole to Mars north Magnetic pole.

    1. Perhaps liquid hydrogen and super conductor materials is the secret to UFO’s or the Nazi flying bells. Liquid mercury was just a decoy to keep other researchers from learning liquid hydrogen and solid hydrogen sulfide super conductor materials are the magic ingredients to all those wonderous physics defying feats those craft are capable of.

  11. I’d like to get a comment from Richard Hoagland on all this, if there is something going on down here, AND THERE DEFINATELY IS, then Hoagland’s take might be interesting. I have always maintained that if you wanted a place to take off and land with space vehicles of black op origin, and didn’t want anybody to see it, then what better place than down there. The political side of the visits IS VERY INTERESTING INDEED, an one can only speculate on the purpose of these visits.

  12. Let us not forget that Mr. Aldrin was the astronaut that said mass and performed a masonic ritual inside the Apollo capsule, said to be a 33° mason Scottish Rite mason at the time…

    1. if my read sources are correct in order to be an astronaut one must be a freemason (one has to prove one can keep a secret) and also a requirement to achieve a US military rank above a colonel;

      and if my remembered sources are correct Buzz Aldrin only achieved the 32nd degree- if he had gone higher (was allowed to) he might’ve had different thoughts about performing Mass (delve into the vast info in the internet about why/who is chosen for the Masonic 33rd degree- ain’t a pretty picture)-

      and anyway, how did he deign himself important enough to conduct a Mass?-

      but if one has read the Hoagland/Bara book “Dark Mission” about NASA being a Freemasonic org. much is explained but many questions are also raised-

      stay well all-

  13. You are making a good point, Kahlypso!!!

    As someone who has been to all the major bases in Antarctica and a bunch of innocuous, little bitty seldom heard of ‘camps’, there could be a simple reason to test whether or not highly technical gear, or even ordinary stuff such as hydraulic equipment, would actually perform the task for which it was designed in a frigid climate PRIOR to sending that gear into the frigid expanse of deep space, or some other planet. There is a very good reason to raise the issue due to the failure of all types of equipment we relied upon, even 3rd and 4th generation re-designed equipment, that would either not function, or it failed prematurely once it arrived in Antarctica.

  14. A portal from Stargate this is beginning to look and sound like a scenario from take you pick. Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, X-Files, Fringe and we the public are not invited or have any right to know what’s going on at either pole.

    1. Except for the Stargate itself, the series was known to be a giveaway for many New World Order truths. No more reruns that I can find, since I pointed that out a few years ago. The Go’uld are now more commonly called “nanites” and carried by most search engines, as well as people. Heavy allergies are a dead(?) giveaway, Joseph. I have them, too.

  15. if one is familiar with the research/books of the incredible British archeologist Graham Hancock: Hancock postulates that Antartica in earlier times, before a cataclysm, was 2500 miles north of its present location and was…


    if/IF true: could it be Kerry, etc., are renewing/making new aquaintances with a few descendents of this lost advanced civilization?- I find it definitely food for thought-

    stay well all-

  16. To be filed under the same heading as the “Ark of Gabriel”, the ark of the covenant traveling always west with obelisks erected every where it rests with Washington DC its latest stop along the way, 300 man space shuttles, and invisible triangular space fleets operating under Space Command, etc.
    Having been to the Moon and possibly having “seen” ancient abandoned(?) bases there, along with “ships” which aren’t ours, Buzz may have been sent there to note any similarities with architectural construction of any ruins discovered.
    Who knows? We aren’t “in the club” and likely will not be told the truth regardless of how bland or fantastic it may be. Megalithic sites have been found on every continent, and I suspect that they will be found on Antarctica, as well. No doubt the history of the earth is stranger than we can imagine.

    1. and buzz freaks out a bit and gets pulmonary edema?

      not bad wd.

      i’m going back to my imagination think. i can imagine some pretty wild stuff. i’m pretty sure i’m imagining i’m gonna out imagine what you think i can and cannot imagine.

      if imagination is responsible for boogeymen and lack of imagination is responsible for lack o solutions for said boogeymen, then i imagine that i imagined ways to make it a wonderful world, solar system, galaxy,…

      wait wasn’t there a ghost busters plot line akin to that? isn’t that where the marshmallow guy came from? vomitos, help a brother out eh?

  17. It won’t be long before Dick Cheney makes a trip to Antarctica to go fishing or hunt walruses. Expect GH Bush and Bill Clinton to follow on some kind of “save the non-existent Antarctic tundra” mission with the real intention of forging a treaty that will keep prying tourists and the Chinese out. Imagine if the Chinese one day get the big idea to haul icebergs back to the South China sea to make new islands or determine penguin eggs are an aphrodisiacal delicacy? What if they decide to turn the Antarctic into a prison colony? Why waste space in China where real estate is so valuable? What if we decide to turn it into a prison colony for the pedophile cult? What if the pedophile cult intentionally exiles themselves there to escape eavesdropping from spy satellites and internet hackers? What if their ability to abuse human children dries up and they move to Antarctica for the purpose of abusing seal pups? I imagine videos of large scale horrific seal slaughters is delightful to these freaks and they probably have them playing in the background of their twisted initiation festivals. What if they even rename Antarctica: Pedophilialand? The nazis allegedly escaped to Antarctica so why not this new batch of demons? Maybe Antarctica is the home for demented souls.

    What if theAntarctic becomes Hillary’s St. Helena? I could imagine after Hillary attempts one more bid for president in 2020, the world will be so fed up with her that they will decide to banish her. What better place to exile her than Antarctica. I could imagine her stumbling into the saloons of McMurdo, bundled in rags like Frankenstein’s monster, looking for new accomplices in her never ending plan to get back in power. What if Hillary, while banished there, commandeers all this ancient advanced technology and uses it to punish her enemies and take over the world? What if she even uses this technology to send the entire world into a deep freeze so everyone on the planet can share her cruel fate as well as feel the ice that runs through her veins? What if she one day becomes the Ice Queen of Antarctica and children and adults for generations to come shutter when this terrible name is uttered?

    1. If Hillary has any shape-shifting capability as some elites are purported to have, her banishment to Antarctica could result in a scene from “The Thing” movie, based on John W. Campbell, Jr.’s novella “Who Goes There?” Be afraid; be very afraid…

  18. Although the disparate background notes of past associations with the continent here remain of some interest, I feel Buzz Aldrin’s link to the US space program has merely invoked undue attention to an otherwise trivial event. I hope to be happily proved wrong, but to me, Aldrin himself appears to be just another nonentity sponging on the past. I predict that we are unlikely to be left with any surprising deathbed confessions, unless (1) he actually knows anything of real interest, and (2) this is coupled with recent medical advances allowing him to grow a spine.

  19. Good grief .. this gets stranger by the second but I am taking the statement “departure to the launchpad!” as literal .. LAUNCHPAD .. Really !! .. that means LIFT OFF .. Reminds me of the scene in “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” where the massive craft descends upon Devils Tower to return some of our “vanished” and collect some of our “nutcases” .. Who knows?? .. John Kerry signing official Earth release documents .. Kirill administering the last rites .. Aldrin handing out copies of “To Serve Man” .. Talk about Twilight Zones ..

      1. does any one ever guess all this predictive programming literature (and it all seems to be predictive programming) is intended to to nothing more than keep our left brains jacked up and our right brains sedated – aka it limits our imagination?

        cuz after all didn’t w and rummy tell ya that the towers fell and the pentagram got hit because of a failure of imagination?

  20. I can see that line of dots connecting. Launchpad to Mars in Antartica, Buzz catches cold on Mars, (its chilly). . . but why wouldn’t they treat him in situ?
    Would you build a base on Mars without medical facilities?

    1. Maybe he caught a Martian bug while he was there. They had to make sure it wasn’t contagious but later found out the Earthly flu is actually from Mar’s and rides in on Martian space dust every winter so there was nothing to worry about.
