2016 closed in its final months and weeks with a series of very weird stories about Antarctica. First, we saw the Patriarch of Moscow, Kirill III, visit the continent, ostensibly to bless the Russian Orthodox chapel at the Russian bases there. As I pointed out at that time, that story just didn't sit entirely comfortably with me, as any Orthodox bishop could have done that. Why get the Patriarch involved? Following his visit, there were stories on the internet that the Saudis(!) had found something at the Grand Mosque in Mecca, which they turned over to Russia (for some not adequately explained reason) so that the Patriarch could take whatever it was to Antarctica and perform "ancient rituals" over it and remove it from endangering The Rest of Humanity.

Needless to say, I didn't buy the idea, for many reasons, not the least of which was that I can't imagine the (out)House of Saud turning anything over to the Russians for Christian rituals to be performed over it, especially if, as the story suggested, it was some sort of ancient high technology.

Following all that strangeness was the visit of U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry to the southern polar continent. The spin for that story was almost as ridiculous as the Saudis-found-something-and-gave-it-to-the-Russians story, for we were told that the Secretary had made his visit because of a personal interest in "climate change." Well, maybe, but the circumstances of the visit, during an otherwise exclusively diplomatic junket, seem odd. Why the side trip to satisfy personal interests in climate change? After all, he's the chief diplomat of the U.S.A., and a simple phone call at Foggy Bottom would have had piles of climate change data and analysis on his desk in Washington in a matter of minutes. As I noted last year about this story, this trip suggested a diplomatic purpose. After all, diplomats talk and negotiate, all of which raises the issue of who Mr. Kerry might have been talking to and negotiating with down there, especially since the U.S.A. maintains relationships with all the countries that have a presence in Antarctica.

But it quickly became even stranger when former Apollo 11 astronaut and "second man on the Moon" Buzz Aldrin went to Antarctica, after texting he was about to go to the launchpad. Those words were, as I noted at the time, capable of two possible interpretations, the more likely one being that, as a former astronaut, he was simply using astronaut-speak for boarding the airplane that would take him there. The other possibility was that he was referring to Antarctica itself as the "launchpad," and of course, that raises all sorts of sticky issues, especially in the context of Mr. Kerry's visit and its weird potentialities. Moreover, once in Antarctica, Mr. Aldrian promptly became sick (with exactly what we're not informed), and had to be emergency-evacuated to New Zealand.

Things became even stranger when regular readers here emailed me various articles about other famous or "connected" people visiting Antarctica, which included, among others, a British prince and the late King Juan Carlos of Spain.

As I began to conjecture what might be drawing all this recent attention, one possibility that I entertained was "they found something," something possibility of historical, cultural, or even technological importance, or all three. At that point, I received articles about the alleged pyramid, about which I remain skeptical in a 60-40 kind of way, 60 percent on the skeptical side, and 40 percent on the "it sure looks like a pyramidal structure" side.

Now, a new "thing" has appeared, according to this recent article shared by many readers here:

What is this fort doing in Antarctica? Motte and bailey castle remains emerge from icecap

OK. "Motte and bailey" may be a bit much, for there are lots of ifs here, and one of them is, of course, that photos can be photoshopped rather easily these days, and even put on Google earth. Nor is there any real evidence here that the article's conclusion is correct, namely, that this represents some ancient construction, rather than a modern one. After all, much going on in Antarctica is secret, and what we are told is subject to all the previously-mentioned caveats and hedges. But, I have to be honest, here my intuition leans to the genuineness of the photo, and to the artificiality of what it is showing; it's a "something artificial" in a region supposedly where such a thing shouldn't be present. The question really is, if this is the case, then what is it, and how old is it?

And that idea makes me move my pyramid skepticism marker to the 55-45 ratio, and not the 60-40 one. Add to this the new attention on the large underground gravitational anomaly that has recently been reported about Antarctica, and we have a very curious picture indeed. Take the "pyramid" and this "structure" together and I'm 55-45.

So why am I bothering you with an article and objects I'm 55 percent skeptical about, and 45 percent positive about?

And the answer is, when one views these stories in the context of visits by King Juan Carlos, John Kerry, Kiril III, and Buzz Aldrin, not to mention British Princes in recent years, and not to mention that strange relationship of Rudolf Hess and Hermann Goering to the southern continent via the Nazi expedition there, then the scenario of "they've found something they're not talking about" gains more corroboration, and pyramids and structures might provide the clue: they've found something old, artificial, and therefore, the remains of a lost civilization.

And we all know what myth lies at the center of that conception, and for our purposes, it's wise and prudent to recall that that lost civilization was said to be warlike, and possessed of strange advanced technologies, by some people's lights.

See you on the flip side...

    I wonder what they found in those tunnels 2 years ago.. 8/2014 – Scientists from the British Antarctic Survey Base and researchers from a number of UK universities made the discovery at the Filchner-Ronne Ice Shelf in West Antarctica.

    Once again, I totally agree with your high octane speculation! The other night on C2C David Wilcock told Jimmy Church in his interview that “They” were going to do a special “partial disclosure” to the public that this area was once Atlantis! That will surely have an upsetting reaction to the public, subconsciously, which were living at that time following your speculation.

    Stranger and stranger/Why, sometimes, I believed six impossible things before breakfast. And it looks like those getting a taste of impossibles are those improbable the tip of an idiotic hierarchical structure, based on a faith spawned by a confederacy of dunces.
    Did something go live? Dead artifacts are museum like wonders that dunces step on. But something that can be brought to class in a show & tell would bring the clowns out in numbers. A signal being sent? An Earth bound transformation brought about by? A portal that beckons inspection? A threshold waiting to become reality?

    It is a small point, but I believe that King Juan Carlos of Spain is still alive though Franco is still dead. Juan Carlos abdicated so his son could take the throne and he could duck and cover. Unless I am experiencing a tiny Mandela effect, Juan Carlos is alive, nearly eighty, and is showing up in unlikely places for a man of his age and alleged health.

    according to highly respected British archeologist Graham Hancock Antarctica was previously (thanks to a catyclism) 2500 miles more northernly than it is now and was previously…


    which, if true, might explain some things…

    Looks exactly like the stone structures Michael Tellinger talks about. In addition to checking him out, do an image search for stone circles Africa.

    Whatever is taking place on the Southern Pole has had modern man’s attention since Nazi Germany’s initial ventures to this most desolate place. Hence, the combined expenditures of all the players are staggering. There’s got to be an Area 51 element to this. Because, the compartmentalization of the info has been very thorough since the ill fated Operation High Jump. But, my question is why haven’t there been more whistleblowers in this arena? When you’ve had several countries’ military down there for decades??

    British Antarctic Survey abandons polar base as worrying crack grows in ice

    • Kahlypso on January 18, 2017 at 8:54 am

      “Although the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) says nobody is immediate danger, they cannot be sure that conditions would not worsen during the difficult conditions of the southern polar winter when an evacuation would be impossible.”

      Since when did the BAS not know that the South Pole is in its SUMMER during January.. (as confirmed by Australien Gizars during the last members pre vid chat.. so I’m not mad..)

      ” In the summer (September–March), the sun is continuously above the horizon and appears to move in a counter-clockwise circle. ” (Wiki quote… may be subjet to change…)

      They have another 3 months to monitor and track this ‘crack in the ice’.. hashtag trackthecrack…
      Finding it hard to imagine these Polar Scientists passing up a chance to monitor in real time the ice breaking up..and watching it happen.. seeing as its one of their prime reasons for being there……(isnt it?)

      • Kahlypso on January 18, 2017 at 9:21 am

        Ok this is getting weirder and weirder… (sorry if it jumps about, Im typing as I’m looking at internet stuff..)

        “The team had just nine weeks to relocate operations, before the harsh winter begins, making it difficult to move the structure amid complete darkness, plummeting temperatures and gale-force winds……
        The base was to be broken up into its eight modules and driven further inland on the back of large tractors. But the exercise has been abandoned to allow staff to be taken to safety.” (quoted from the article…)

        ….. The team HAD 9 weeks… So I’m not crazy, we’re taking in past tense.. The base WAS to be broken up……. But the exercise has been abandonned.. (back to present tense)… to allow staff to be taken (future tense…..I know, I’m annoying.) to safety…
        (Your opinions interest me…What is this?
        1) Me looking too hard at nothing?
        B) The Telegraph’s standards for English Grammar have fallen through the floor
        iii) They are LYING about why they have to abandon ship right now (its happening as we speak), even though they have until 2020 before the crack cuts them off… )

        “During the summer months (ah.. back to summer now are we??) the BAS could quickly airlift staff to safety should there by a sudden fracturing of the ice sheet”

        But not fast enough for a crack that should break up in 2020.. unless something underneath in pushing up and the shelf is “scheduled” to fall into the Ocean in the next3-8 months…. would force a group of polar scientists to abandon a scientific base because they no longer have enough time to get it out of the way…..

        • Kahlypso on January 18, 2017 at 10:08 am

          Normally the end date was for 2018…

          “Observations reveal that this particular chasm has been growing continuously for over two years. The crack tip is moving gradually upstream of the station. Scientists estimate that if it continues to grow at its current rate it will take several years to cut Halley VI off from the portion of the ice shelf that is further inland. This gives BAS time to plan and prepare the relocation of the station.”

          So.. unless its the crack discovered in October thats causing the problem… I’m having a hard time understanding the SUDDEN need for speed.. (they’ve been following this crack since 2012). Although there is probably nothing to see here and everything is ok.. I get a bit weird about the Antarctica..

  9. DownunderET on January 17, 2017 at 4:07 pm

    I don’t think they have found anything like a pyramid, why get elites to go down there to look a pyramid, they can do that in Egypt. It has to be something more “esoteric”, like a rock with carvings which tell of an ancient race who lived here a long time ago. Or a “body” entombed in ice for thousands of years. Or maybe the real thing, an entity, yep, a living breathing being. Whatever it is it’s BIG, and for obvious reasons it can’t be told. For my money it’s “history”, and don’t forget what Oscar Wilde said. “The one thing we owe history is to rewrite it. Well the elites don’t want to do that, they have lied to us on just about every subject you can name, and they have covered it up.

  10. zeitguy on January 17, 2017 at 2:35 pm

    Lovecraft had some pretty elaborate ideas about this. Gillermo Del Toro was going to do a film based on the Lovecraft story. When Ridley Scott announced “Prometheus” Del Toro backed out, saying it was a duplicate effort. I would like to know the story behind this story.

    • Kahlypso on January 18, 2017 at 8:06 am

      Yep, we’ve all gone through the Mountains of Madness.. Which if you read it, tells you nothing more than some weird giant penguin eating something is hidden in an ice cave..
      I think that some troll somewhere photoshopped Mr Aldrin’s tweeter account to annonce that unspeakable evil has awakened in the antarctica.. Hail Cthulu.

  11. marcos toledo on January 17, 2017 at 1:40 pm

    May I recommend watching the sci-fi b-movie The Mole People. I know it’s set in Central Asia but a change in geography does that matter I think not. Antarctica as I have written before has been a setting for many a science fiction story.

  12. Vomito Blanco on January 17, 2017 at 11:33 am

    It is so intriguing I actually encourage the powers that be to continue defrosting the southern continent just so we can see what is under the ice. (I’m not opposed to the eastern and western coasts of the United States being submerged, although accidentally triggering a new ice age would be quite a bummer). The fantasist in me wants to believe this is where all the elves (denisovans?) departed to once the homo sapiens got done raping, killing, enslaving and eating all the other hominids on all the other continents. (Tolkien conveys this elf evacuation in Lord of The Rings.) Elves being elves, they would certainly maintain as natural a look to their man-made pyramids and castles, especially if they were trying to camouflage their civilization from genocidal homo sapien carnivores, so it doesn’t surprise me that these structures can be mistaken for natural rock formations. I would even speculate that the entire ice sheet covering Antarctica could be the product of an elven magic spell to hide them from the rest of the world, or some advanced technology tinkering with the Earth’s climate, crust or obliquity– possibly using pyramids.

    And once they settled in and got used to living under giant ice domes and inside rocky caverns, and adapting to a treeless climate, the elves probably grew contently into their new lifestyle. No longer did they have to fear being on the menu of an incorrigible predator hominid, their vicious raiding parties, and the immense amount of energy it took elves to keep their forest abodes in the old world hidden from these excitable, wanton beasts with rounded ears and fur on their faces, limbs and chests and teeth and jaws devolved for crushing bone and eating flesh. I can only imagine the joy the elves must have felt these last few thousand years, having escaped this terror in their new Antarctic home and replaced it with a merry life of tranquility– harvesting lichen and algae in the great subterranean lakes and caverns, carving stunning cathedrals in the ice domes, and just generally frolicking as elves do when they are free from worry. (I used to have a recurring dream where I was swimming unclothed with several elven maidens in an immense body of water under an icy dome of reflected light. The elf girls swam like dolphins and would tug me to the bottom where we would grab handfuls of exotic seaweed which we would eat later on shore. The seaweed had psychotropic properties which was enhanced by the singing of the elven maidens who would dance around me blithely).

    Now I can only imagine the dread and anxiety these elves must currently face, as homo sapiens have uncovered their new hiding place. And to think– the very first homo sapiens to probe their concealed civilization were nazis. It makes me shutter. Now the homo sapien invasion is unrelenting, with their excavators, and drills, scientists and soldiers, diplomats, and backward “holy men” invoking their psychotic god and sanctioning the impending destruction and genocide with empty invocations and rituals. I lament the cursed fate of the elves. There is no escape for them, if they attempt to burrow deeper below ground, we will only follow them. Their only recourse is to stand and fight or pray that homo sapiens can somehow embrace a higher portion of their brain which will allow them to peacefully coexist and not treat every other Earth inhabitant as something to eat, screw, or urinate on. Unfortunately, there is absolutely nothing to suggest homo sapiens will change their ways any time soon so prepare for total war between elves and homo sapiens. I for one will be cheering for the elves and doing all in my power to ensure their victory. Call me traitor if you will, but you have never experienced the incredible pleasure of swimming in an Antarctic lake with no clothes on, surrounded by the loveliest leaping and diving elven women, who are so hospitable it seems as if their sole purpose in life is to make others happy and feel welcome. Godspeed Elves.

  13. WalkingDead on January 17, 2017 at 10:34 am

    There are many possible myths/stories which could explain an antediluvian civilization on Antarctica. One of these involves ET’s (fallen angels) and their offspring (reported to be giants) in Genesis 6, and the books of Enoch, who were taught “forbidden knowledge” by their parents along with mankind.
    Crustal displacement could be a possible explanation for the flood which destroyed whatever “civilization” existed before its occurrence and the history that went with it; supposedly leaving only one family to tell the tale.
    Methinks that the history of any antediluvian civilization is far different than what we have been lead to believe; it was far more advanced than we suspect; and used a physics which differs from what is in use today.
    Since the existence of pyramidal structures is documented on every other continent, I wouldn’t doubt that they might be found on Antarctica, along with other evidence of a preexisting civilization, although glaciers might have destroyed a great deal of it over time.
    Would this have potential religious significance, you can bet on it. Would it have potential “national security” interests for any “technology” which might be found; sure. Would it have potential significance historically, sure; it would change many things. Would it make you wonder why all evidence of “giants” seems to vanish once it gets to the Smithsonian and other repositories of such things, possibly.
    One thing is certain, the “history” we have been taught bears little resemblance to what, most likely, actually occurred during the time before the flood or immediately afterward.

  14. Irene T on January 17, 2017 at 9:50 am

    C2CAM had David Wilcock as guest on January 13, 2017 and he discussed what is going on regarding Antarctica and Atlantis. It is an interesting listen at least.

  15. DanaThomas on January 17, 2017 at 7:34 am

    Here are a couple of tidbits: How the Roman Catholic Jubilee was celebrated at the Argentine Antarctic Base (in Italian from the official organ of the Italian Bishops Conference):
    Another one: in 2014, the pope reminisces about how in his Argentina days he “had to” send a Jesuit chaplain to live in Antarctica for 10 months a year:

  16. Kahlypso on January 17, 2017 at 6:50 am

    Came rushing in like a hurricane.. When I saw this article, I was expecting the real revelations to start for the next day..and not the Google Earth Googlers to start combing the snow looknig for traces of buildings… My cheeks are blue from holding my breath….
    This kind of info is always delicate,
    “Satellite imagery clearly shows the structure, which closely resembles the ruins of a once giant building.” …… RESEMBLES ……
    I’ve seen pictures of spacedust that resemble a giant eye, a huge hand, pictures of cloud that loko like alien motherships, pictures of toast that look like Jesus…

    What I believe, is that this island/continent contains the remnants of a former civilisation, I believe that that this island was probably land bridged to south america when the sea level was a lot lower, crustal displacement (for me) explains why its now under the ice.

    I think that Antartica will probably be more in ligne with the Continent of Mu rather than the Atlanteans, Plato was very specific as to where Atlantis was, (to the west of the the straits of Gibralter) and the damage it caused on shipping routes when it sunk. (which may have explained the subsequent diversion of culture, whilst also explaining the similitudes between Meso Americans (who claimed their ancestors came from the East)and Mesopotamians/Eygptians (who claimed their ancestors came from the West)

    If we follow Sumerian texts and let yourself be convincedthat the Underworld was the Underside of the world (as understood only if you saw the world as a globe.. which the Sumerians didnt) And that Enki’s gold mining business as based in the South of Africa, then it would be completely understandable that the landmass in Antartica would be geographically interesting to see if there is any gold over there as well… Which may explain implanting a local workforce to check it out and see what’s down there..(I’m thinking that the local workforce put into place were of negro stock, so migration south from Africa which would explain Aboriginal tribes in Australia (not that far to travel from Antartica to Australia… certainly less distance than Africa to Australia..)and Negroid heads being made by Tolmecs.. if it were the Tolmecs that made them.. if there were a land bridge between the two masses a long time ago… and the workforce would certainly have been prepped and learned in stone masonry and stone cutting if they used to be miners..)

    But I’ve managed to convince myself that any Pyramids that may be found in the Antarctic would be more in line with Step Pyramids, as witnessed in Step Pyramid’s at Saqurrah in Eygpt, step pyramids in Central America, Ziggurats in Mesopotomia.. You need a long history of construction practise and trial and error to get good at making pyramids.
    (Unless you’re an invading alien civilisation who just sprouts Pyramids like mushrooms everywhere you go and you dont need centuries of construction practrise..because you have anti gravity and robots to do the work for you..:))

    Perhaps finding ruins in Antarctica will give us the missing link of What happened BEFORE the Flood..

    However I dont believe for an instant that any information found in the Antarctica will be shared with the world. Look what happened when they re-discovered the Great Pyramid. Thay actually believed that some ancient King made it to be his tomb. And (yes I know, grammatically its a sin) everyone actually believed it.

    Any info that confirms the existence of civilisations before the flood seems to make everyone very nervous.
    Just get over it, Ok religion was wrong, our texts have been changed in order to lie to us and lie about our own origin, we’ve been lied to in order for a small group of people to keep their privilege and rank. Fine, it’s really unjust and horrible, lets just forgive it, (after stringing a few heads up.. but who really deserve it) and move on.

    • OrigensChild on January 17, 2017 at 10:03 am

      “And (yes, I know, grammatically its a sin)…”. Yes I know, and I am the worst of sinners for doing it… I won’t defend it but will explain my own commission. I write as swiftly as I can and forget to remove them. Rarely do I get the chance to really edit. Therefore, I sin before the god of grammar often, though I fear him little. I commit far more sins here than school or occasions where I might “publish” for real. Since he is a god with so many limitations in his capability, I usually ignore him altogether. As far as I am concerned, sin away! This sin is especially handy when the commission sets an idea apart for greater emphasis. Such was the case here…

  17. Dan on January 17, 2017 at 5:37 am

    Oh I love Antarctica. One of those mysteries that keeps on giving.
    I’m hoping its more than ancient remnants but an actual living culture that’s going to freak us all out of this day dream.

Everything else would make perfect sense….Including Patriach Kirill and Buzz Aldrin’s experience.

          • Virginia Thompon on January 18, 2017 at 5:33 pm

            No, I meant the demon Azazel bound by Raphael and buried around the Euphrates River somewhere pre-flood. This story,
            in the Bible book Tobit, is accepted by the Greek Orthodox Church but not by the Roman Catholic…..which is why the Saudis went to Russia rather than Rome! I always thought the “What Does It Mean” site was bogus…but this strange tale rings too many bells….if you recognize all the players!
