Ok folks, things just became even more bizarre regarding the Antarctica Strange Visitors Sweepstakes. May we have the envelope please... ?


And the next visitor to Antarctica is...


........... The Russian Baltic Fleet! (Applause):

Ships of Russian Baltic Fleet to make voyage to Antarctica this year

...uhm... er... really?  I mean... really!?

Now, as I recall, the last time the Russians sent their Baltic Fleet on this kind of half-way-round-the-world junket was in 1905 during the Russo-Japanese war, whereupon Japanese Admiral Togo promptly sank it in the Tsushima straits. Of course, when it comes to the modern Baltic Fleet, the TASS article reassures us that this is all "perfectly" normal and just part of the Baltic Fleet's usual schedule of voyages and drills and "showing the flag":

Ships of Russia’s Baltic Fleet, one of the major regional divisions of the Navy, will make several long-distance voyages this year, including a voyage to Antarctica, the official spokesman for the Fleet, Roman Martov told TASS.

"The ships of the fleet are to make long-distance voyages to the North Sea, to the Mediterranean, to Antarctica, and to other areas of the world ocean this year," he said without specifying the ships that would take part in them, as the voyages were still in the phase of planning.

Martov recalled that the oceanic survey vessel of the Baltic Fleet, the Admiral Vladimirsky, did an Antarctic voyage from November 2015 through to April 2016, for the first time in thirty years.

He pointed out a constant expansion of the geography of voyages, saying that ships of the Baltic Fleet performed assignments in the Caribbean, North, Black, and Mediterranean Seas, as well as in the Atlantic and Indian Oceans in 2016.

Nothing to be concerned about or see here; just routine stuff... move along. Dosvuydanye.

Of course, we note that the "oceanic survey vessel", the Admiral Vladimirsky, was in the Antarctic doing oceanic surveys (presumably) just a few months before the Patriarch of Moscow's visit to bless the snow and penguins. And, let's be fair, I remember the days when "Russian survey vessels" meant big ships bristling like a porcupine with all manner of antennae and electronic equipment to eavesdrop on Western communications. So let's assume the Admiral Vladimirsky is one such vessel. Oh, look, why, it is just such a ship, and oh, look where it was before it sailed off for Antarctica:

Russian Ocean Research Ship Leaves Saudi Arabia Port for Antarctica

In the latter article we're informed that the Admiral Vladimirsky was conducting a "hydrographic campaign" in Antarctica waters.

A campaign? I can't help but think the military language here is deliberate, and suggestive. A campaign of what? Against, or about, whom? A glance at the Vladimirsky shows it is not a warship, but rather looks like what the Russians say it is: a "survey" ship, complete with bristling antennae and other equipment. Now I find it interesting because, of course, there was that internet story last year that maintained the the (out)House of Saud had found "something" near the Grand Mosque in Mecca, and that this had so scared the you-kn0w-what out of the Saudis that they contacted the Russians to take it to Antarctica, and bury it. The story has it that the Patriarch was supposed to have performed "ancient rituals" over the object.

Now, I'm not buying that story for a moment, not the least because its provenance was questionable, which it remains. But then who was the Admiral Vladimirsky listening to in Antarctica? Everyone else with stations there? Or "someone else"? Or was it listening to anyone at all? If not, what sort of "hydrographic campaign" was it on? and let us note, after the Vladimirsky's previous visit, we then had the visits of Kiril III, John Kerry, and Buzz Aldrin.

What's intriguing in the TASS article is the suggestion that the next visit to Antarctica will include ships - plural - of the Baltic Fleet, not just the Admiral Vladimirsky. Which prompts the question, what kind of ships and how many? And why such a move in a time of still-tense relationships between the West and Russia? And what is so important down in Antarctica that it requires the presence of elements of Russia's Baltic Fleet?

I don't know about you, but I hope the Russian expedition fares better than Admiral Rozhestvenski's did against Admiral Togo.

    Russia Begins Transport Of Saudi Arabia’s Mysterious “Ark of Gabriel” To Antarctica

    By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

    A mind-boggling report circulating in the Kremlin today prepared by the Ministry of Defense (MoD) states that the sudden launching yesterday by Aerospace Forces (AF) of two satellites are for the protection of the Federation naval research vessel Admiral Vladimisky—which has just departed the Saudi Arabian Port of Jeddah after taking on board a mysterious object described as the “Ark of Gabriel” whose importance is deemed so vital that President Putin has further ordered naval warships guided missile cruiser Varyag, the Sovremennyy-class destroyer Bystry, Boris Chilikin-class fleet oiler Boris Butoma, and the powerful salvage tug Alatau that upon the ending of their current mission in India, they are to rendezvous with the Admiral Vladimisky in the Southern Ocean providing it protection as it sails to Antarctica.

    According to this report, the unprecedented mission being undertaken by the Admiral Vladimisky research vessel began on 6 November when it departed from Kronstadt on the Federation’s first Antarctica expedition in 30 years—and described by the MoD as having such “critical military-religious” significance its cargo includes capsules with Russian soil which will be placed in the areas of military glory and burial sites of Russian sailors at selected ports of call.

    To what spurred this astonishing mission, this report explains, was the contacting on 25 September of His Holiness Patriarch Kirill of Moscow by representatives of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, regarding a mysterious ancient “device/weapon” discovered under the Masjid al-Haram Mosque (Grand Mosque) during what has turned into a very controversial construction project begun in 2014.

    Gravely raising the concerns of the Grand Mosque emissaries, this report continues, was when this mysterious “device/weapon” was discovered on 12 September by a 15-man tunnel digging crew—and who in their attempting to remove it were instantly killed by a massive “plasma emission” so powerful it ejected from the ground toppling a construction crane killing, at least, another 107 people.

    Catastrophically worse, this report notes, was that barely a fortnight after the first attempt to remove this mysterious “device/weapon” was made on 12 September, another attempt was made on 24 September which killed over 4,000 due to another massive “plasma emission” which put tens-of-thousands in panic—but which Saudi officials then blamed on a stampede.

    Aftermath of 24 September “plasma emission” over Grand Mosque

    After the catastrophic death toll involved with the Saudi’s second attempt to remove this mysterious “device/weapon”, this report says, His Holiness Patriarch Kirill was then contacted by the Grand Mosque emissaries in regards to one of the oldest Islamic manuscripts possessed by the Russian Orthodox Church that was saved from the Roman Catholic Crusaders in 1204 when they sacked the Church of Holy Wisdom (now known as Hagia Sophia) in Constantinople (present day Istanbul, Turkey) titled “Gabriel’s Instructions To Muhammad”.

    Important to note, this report explains, and virtually unknown in the West, were that the Roman Catholic Crusades (and like they mirror today) were not only against the peoples of Islamic faith, but also against those having Russian Orthodox faith too—and why, during these crusades, the Russian Orthodox Church not only protected their own religious libraries from being destroyed, but also those belonging to Muslims.

    As to the contents of this ancient Islamic manuscript, “Gabriel’s Instructions To Muhammad”, this report briefly notes, it centers around a group of instructions given to Muhammad by the Angel Gabriel in a cave called Hira, located on the mountain called Jabal an-Nour, near Mecca, wherein this heavenly being entrusted into Muhammad’s care a “box/ark” of “immense power” he was forbidden to use as it belonged to God only and was, instead, to be buried in a shrine at the “place of worship the Angels used before the creation of man” until its future uncovering in the days of Yawm al-Qīyāmah, or Qiyâmah, which means literally “Day of the Resurrection”.

    Though this MoD report mentions virtually nothing about the conversations held between His Holiness Patriarch Kirill and the emissaries of the Grand Mosque in regards to this mysterious “weapon/device”, it does stunningly acknowledge that when President Putin was first informed about this grave situation, on 27 September, he not only immediately ordered the mission to Antarctica for the Admiral Vladimisky research vessel, he, also, further ordered 3 days later, on 30 September, Aerospace Forces to begin bombing Islamic State terrorists and targets in Syria.

    As to what this mysterious “weapon/device” actually is we are not allowed to report on due to the strictures we have to abide by in being allowed to publish even the merest glimpses of what happens behind Kremlin walls we are currently permitted to do.

    This also pertains to why Russia is helping Saudi Arabia move it to Antarctica—but with both of these nations soon to be at war with the fascist governments of the West, one need only watch the following video [or click HERE] of some of Russia’s top military officers explaining what they know of Antarctica, and its past, to figure out for oneself how critical, indeed, these times really are that we are living in.

Due to our missions conflicts with that of those governments, the responses of their ‘agents’ against us has been a longstanding misinformation/misdirection campaign designed to discredit and which is addressed in the report “Who Is Sorcha Faal?”.]

      Again, and for the record, I’ve never blogged about this story nor referred to it in any way as being something I think is true. The ignorance of history and Orthodoxy, not to mention Wahhabist Islam, displayed, is breathtaking. The idea that Islam, entrusted with an ark, as alleged, by God, would then contact infidel Russians to help them move it to Antarctica, is way too much for me.

  2. John Dunlap on February 22, 2017 at 4:33 am

    Humor me while I engage in some high octane speculation of my own. The list of visitors says to me, that something important and greatly disturbing has been found, of such a nature as to compel Russia and the United States to cooperate in dealing with it. I find myself wondering if all the noise over Crimea is both spill over from a quieter, much more serious argument, and providing a distraction from matters down South. Washington and Moscow have been rattling their sabers at each other for a few years now, all the while still conducting “educational” exchanges of military personnel and joint missions to the International Space Station. There seems to be an atmosphere of psychotic mania surrounding the relationship. Perhaps whatever they’ve found would explain that.

    You would never have found him through his office, Mr. President. Our Premier is a man of the people, but he is also… a man, if you follow my meaning.

    looking for Flight MH370 as the Australians have finally given up $90m and only half way to Antartica?
    or the only place cool and solid enough to live soon after Fukushima (Zionist overkill of all the krill?) has tritium fried the planet?

    little point, it was Saturn in the original 2001 novel, the one with the Hex North Pole.

    In 2001: A Space Odyssey, the black monolith is an intriguing vehicle that inste ty(oots) a sudden change in mankind/nature.
    There were three.
    The first incorporate tools/weapons.
    The first in 2010 generated Jupiter into a star: Lucifer.
    The first in 3001 again tries to destroy the humans.
    All three hell bent to destroy humans?

    In the highly regarded and reputable used car business, Hollywooded meant Playhouse 90: a fake staged play all to make the customer belief something that wasn’t true.

    Something IS going on.
    But is the stage being fixed so as to present a TV side?
    Where the real view is being hidden?

    • Robert Barricklow on February 18, 2017 at 2:10 pm

      Another interpretation:
      The cold black slab[blank computer interface] of 2001 Space Odyssey has re-architected everything –
      our living and work spaces, our schools, airports, even bars, restaurants & casinos.
      The result is a colder, more isolated, less human world.

        Perhaps I should confuse the bot with a HEAVY dose of quantum mechanics, because after a while its worldview would become affected: the more it learns…
        the less it will believe.

    That´s odd. Why the Baltic fleet? Im sure they would have had some extra submarines lurking near USA or South-American coastline to do that kind of “visit”…

    • Tommi H on February 17, 2017 at 2:32 pm

      ….also you can’t use very big vessels in Baltic Sea as it´s very small and shallow. It is an average of 55 metres (180 ft) deep.

      • Tommi H on February 17, 2017 at 2:44 pm

        Maybe for some reason they need a sub small enough (a diesel sub), and to get that diesel sub in to antarctic waters you need a tanker too to refuel it, and that tanker needs some surface cover, so there you have “a fleet” 🙂

    As Sherlock Holmes would say a game is afoot in Antarctica and as WalkingDead said I hope it doesn’t suffer the same fate as Admiral Byrd Operation High Jump feet.

  8. basta on February 17, 2017 at 9:35 am

    When you started posting about the sudden interest in Antarctica, I wrote that doubtless some “scientific” expedition discovered some vast resource wealth down there and everyone who can is now jockeying for position and trying to figure out how to exploit it despite the treaties in place. Everything reported since has only confirmed my initial suspicions.

  9. WalkingDead on February 17, 2017 at 8:57 am

    We will have to wait and see if they fare any better than that ill fated US visit.

  10. Roger on February 17, 2017 at 7:54 am

    Perhaps a climate changing event is about to happen and that’s the best place to observe the beginning of it so they can have plenty of time to make it into the bunkers. Or perhaps they are trying to stop the globalists from making a man made rapid global sea rise by melting a large portion of the ice down there. Or perhaps they became aware of a sinister global plot and want to be in position to intercept the elite before they can safely make it into their Antarctic bunkers before setting it off there by stopping the event from being carried out. Or perhaps Nirabu is real after all and Antarctica really is the best position to observe it’s first appearance from around the Sun next year before heading safely to the bunkers.

    • Robert Barricklow on February 17, 2017 at 3:45 pm

      Planet X ?
      Supersize climate change?
      Intercept the elite before… ?
      These are all intriguing possibilities.

    If the Saudis truly had found something that scared the absolute heebie jeebies out of them enough so to call in the Ruskis to dispose of it, surely you’d be better off launching it into outer space from Kazakhstan on a one way journey than burying it in Antarctica, unsure as to whether it could still pose a threat.

    Anyway, something’s going on down the south pole and has peaked their interest. As it happens the world’s largest telescope happens to be buried in the ice down there so perhaps they’re visiting to view something they’ve identified up there.
