Well, there's yet another Antarctica strangeness story to relate.  If you're a regular reader here, you know the long (and very strange) list of people associated with, or who have actually visited, the place.  For those of you who are relatively new to this website and its blogs, however, it would be helpful to have a brief review and resume of that list of people associated with the southern continent in modern times:

  1. Reichmarschall Hermann Goering, who among other "achievements" founded both the Gestapo and the Luftwaffe, and co-sponsored the 1938-39 Nazi expedition to that continent, along with
  2. Stellvertreter Rudolf Hess, "Deputy" Fuehrer of Nazi Germany,
  3. American Admiral Richard Byrd, who helped brief the Nazi expedition on what conditions they would encounter, and who was later chosen to lead the post-war Operation High Jump expedition to the continent in 1946-1947.  We were told that the operation was necessary because the Arctic might become a theater of war, and that it was necessary to test our equipment and tactics in Arctic conditions. Yes, but we had Alaska and Canada available for that, and they were easier to reach. We even built the Alcan Road during World War Two to be able to ship supplies by road through Canada to Alaska.  We did not need to send an entire flotilla to Antarctica. Initial tentative conclusion: there was some other reason for our (and the Nazis') interest in the continent.  Oh.... did I mention that the planning for Admiral Byrd's expedition involved Fleet Admiral Nimitz, and more importantly, Secretary of Defense James Forrestal?  So you can add
  4. Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz, and
  5. Secretary of Defense James Forrestal to the list of people strangely associated with the place.  More recently this list has come to include:
  6. King Juan Carlos, who actually visited the place;
  7. Apollo 11 Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, who not only  visited the place, but who had to be medically evacuated from it, after allegedly tweeting that what he had seen there was "absolutely evil", or words to that effect;
  8. All sorts of British royals beginning with Prince Philipp;
  9. Secretary of State John "ketchup" Kerry, who took time during a diplomatic junket in 2016, during the height of the presidential election, to divert to the polar continent, ostensibly to get a first-hand look at "global warming" (q.v. my frozen water pipes of Monday).  The fact that this occurred during a diplomatic junket led me to speculate that perhaps the real purpose of the diversion was to conduct high level secret diplomacy, perhaps with a world leader, or perhaps with "someone else", away from prying public eyes. Or was "Ketchup" Kerry summoned there?
  10. Russian Orthodox Patriarch of Moscow Kirill III, who, fresh from a meeting with "Novis Ordo Roman Catholic" Pope Francis in Havana, travelled to Antarctica. Again, there was a "story" that was put out that the Patriarch of Moscow and All the Russias went there to bless the Orthodox chapel that had been built. Indeed, the Russians did build a chapel there, but basically any hierarch could have blessed it. But the Patriarch?  At approximately the same time, Turkey announced that it wanted a "share" in Antarctica and would be starting its own outposts there, and there was a strange story from Saudi Arabia that they had found a "something" while excavating parts of Mecca, and that the "something" was so dangerous they contacted the infidel Patriarch of Moscow to take it and deal with it, a story that I found, and still find, to be incredible and highly unlikely, but I mention it here for completeness' sake. The blessing and consecration of the chapel done, the Patriarch then posed for some photo-ops with the penguins, and returned to balmy Moscow.
  11. Oh... and in case you'd forgotten, Colonel Fletcher Prouty, one time Pentagon-CIA-White House liaison officer under president John F. Kennedy, was dispatched by his boss, none other than General Ed Lansdale of Yamashita's gold-Three-tramps-in-Dallas-on-the-day-of-the-assassination fame, to accompany some dignitaries to and from Antarctica during the time period of the assassination. You'll remember Prouty from his book The Secret Team and from Donald Sutherland's portrayal of him in Oliver Stone's movie JFK. 

Now, that's just the people. There has been a veritable litany of other oddities concerning the polar continent, from glaciers breaking off the ice shelf (and touted as proof of global warming), which "broken off pieces" somehow managed to be almost perfectly rectangular, as if they had been cut off, to google maps searches that allegedly showed massive fossils of "something" peeking out from under the snow, to mountains that look perfectly pyramidal, claims of Nazi era U-Boat bases, the presence of Raytheon and Lockheed-Martian on the continent...

...in short, the place is a veritable magnet of high strangeness, not the least of which are the people associated with it. (For a complete review of all my blogs on Antarctic strangeness, just type "Antarctica" into the search engine on this website).

Now you can add this to the list:

A Papal Visit to the South Pole? Pope Francis Looks to New Peripheries

Yes you read that correctly: there is some chatter that Pope Francis (or else, some group within the Curia) wants the Pope to go to Antarctica. Francis apparently made the announcement last October:

Pope Francis, who is known as “the Pope of the peripheries,” has suggested the possibility of traveling to somewhere no pope has gone before — the South Pole.

In a new interview published on Oct. 17, the Pope said that he plans to visit his native Argentina, adding: “Somebody said that if I go to Argentina, I should stop at Rio Gallegos, then head to the South Pole, land in Melbourne, and visit New Zealand.”

“It would be a rather long journey,” he joked.

The 86-year-old Pope does not currently have any international trips on his official schedule, but he recently made a 4,000-mile journey to Mongolia and visited the French city of Marseille.

And we have the mention of the trip of Patriarch Kirill:

Pope Francis would not be the first religious leader to visit Antarctica. Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill visited an Antarctic research station — and walked with penguins — in 2016 as part of a trip to Latin America, which included a historic meeting with Pope Francis in Cuba.

I suspect that we're meant to take from this mention that if the Patriarch can do it, the Papacy should not be "one-upped" by the Orthodox, and assert its own presence there. Who knows? The article goes on to mention that there have been Catholic chapels on the continent under the jurisdiction of Argentina's military bishopric. Bottom line: whether Francis or his successor goes to Antarctica, we may reasonably expect that sooner or later a Pope will visit the place, walk with the penguins, and have his picture taken among them.

As one might expect, I have some high octane speculation to advance, and it concerns this very strange and now potentially papal list of visitors and strange people associated with the place.  Even by mentioning a potential visit, Francis has now become a member of that list, at least by associating himself and the institution he occupies in connection with the place. So again: I pose the question: what could possibly explain the association of such a strange list of people with the place?  Rudolf Hess? John Kerry? King Juan Carlos? Buzz Aldrin? Kirill? Goering? Francis?

No, I don't think is has anything to do with neutrinos, or any of the other things about the place.  All the strange goings on there I suspect are related, or tied together, somehow, by the list of people visiting the place. I suspect that the moment it became clear that there was lots of land down there, and that the moment it became clear that the Piri Reis map showed the coastline of the continent, that a small group of people realized its significance: an entire continent, under ice, that is to say, under water. Atlantis.  And I suspect that the moment this was realized, that the hunt was on for its lost technology, archives, and corroborating evidence.

But most importantly, I think the hunt was on for survivors... In short, I strongly suspect that at the core of the Antarctic high strangeness is not a "what", but a who...  And Whoever It is, It is an important Who, important enough to attract the attention of Nazi Reichmarschalls, American Fleet Admirals and Secretaries of Defense and State, and of Kings, Princes, Patriarchs, and Popes...

...See you on the flip side...

    Sorcha Faal is Russia’s source for the Saudi Arabian Grand Mosque at Mecca excavation of a “dangerous object”/ “Ark of Gabriel” story. I’ve always considered her and her website, if she is indeed a her, to be a joke.

    As stated in the Blog “the hunt was on for survivors… In short, I strongly suspect that at the core of the Antarctic high strangeness is not a “what”, but a who.”

    No ‘published scientific evidence’ that I am aware of has found the existence of any previous, or ancient high civilization in Antarctica. Although a Russian exploraton team did drill deep into Antarctica’s subglacial Lake Vostok and reported they found at least one new, or rather a previosly unknown life form in the depths of the lake. The lake contains at least one previously unidentified species of bacteria. Then considering the continents vastness and remoteness it is possible evidence of higher, alien lifeforms may one day be discovered.

    As far as I’m concerned, the whole Vatican apparatus could be transferred to the South Pole and Italy would be all the better for it.

  4. Michael UK on January 19, 2024 at 3:29 am

    If Buzz Aldrin really did say those words about “pure evil” in Antarctica, then it is likely he was referring to a US secret space program in Antarctica run out of McMurdo Station, most probably invovling lasers and ‘Rods of God’.
    It should be noted that the air in Antarctica is pure and unpolluted and ideal for testing lasers and other advanced optical weapons.

    • Michael UK on January 19, 2024 at 4:12 am

      Of course, the cover for plausible deniability would be that lasers and radar installations at McMurdo Station are being used solely for peaceful scientific purposes to measure the thickness of the ice and to monitor ice loss and climate change! Hence Kerry Ketchup Climate Czar visit.

      • Nidster - on January 20, 2024 at 2:32 am

        Russia has 10 research stations in the Antarctic, able to accommodate up to 120 people. Patriarch Kirill was reported to have visited the Bellingshausen research station on the island of Waterloo and was reported to have met with Pope Francis in 2016. The Russian Orthodox church is near the Bellingshausen station, which opened in 2004, and is the only church on the continent to hold services all year round, with priests spending the winter there.

        So, not at the McMurdo Station because that base is far too open to so many folks, including a tourist cruise line that visits each year in December. There is also a sizeable contingent of American military serviceman at McMurdo Station, and various scientist from lots of universities, and various other scientific endeavors. Also, almost all air traffic to Antartica’s McMurdo Station is via Christchurch, NZ, and is about a 6-to-8-hour flight. So, McMurdo is somewhat close to New Zealand or Australia, but nowhere close to Argentina.

    I know I have read somewhere, but can’t remember the source, that 30,000 Ukrainian women were sent to Antarctica sometime before/during/after WW2. I wonder what could possibly have been the reason for this? The only thing that comes to my mind is a gift to appease – who? Or was it to cross-breed and create a new biologic entity with – who?

    Anyone out there have a bit more information about this?

  6. bluelectricstorm on January 18, 2024 at 7:08 am

    I’ll bet they all went to disneyland also, which is what antartica is beginning to sound like.

  7. Mejkai on January 18, 2024 at 6:43 am

    One of the more intriguing cases concerning the polar regions that I’ve come across is the theory of physical continuity, as presented in “Worlds beyond the Poles”. https://archive.org/details/WorldsBeyondThePolesPhysicalContinuityOfTheUniverseFinalWithAddedPages

  8. Nidster - on January 17, 2024 at 11:56 pm

    Hey people, I’ve been to Antarctica twice, and to many places on the continent. The only really, really weird ‘stuff’ going on there is not alien, or off world folks. To be sure it is a very strange place, but the primary reason those folks are going there is because it is very, very private. Meaning their ‘conversations are highly unlikely to be under surveillance.

    • anakephalaiosis on January 18, 2024 at 7:44 am

      Jewry, on European thrones, has mascara running thin, and when exposed, finding no forgiveness, then Assyro-Zionists need remote places, to weather the storm.

      Popular mystification of their remote hideouts is useful, because it provides a cover, for the endgame, which is total and absolute destruction of Nineveh, in 612 BC.

      The Scythian century was about toasting to hell, by enemy skull, which is being a “psycho killer” in modern terms, commemorated, as berserker, in old Scandinavia.

      Antarctica is a desolate deepfreezer, where skull cups can be toasted, like booze on the rocks.

    India’s 43rd scientific expedition sets sail to research stations in the southern polar region, to study the melting of glaciers, the making of monsoons, and of all things highly interesting will be the synthesis of high-quality gold nanoparticles.

    Remember everybody Antiartica is the setting for The Mountains of Maddness by H.P. Lovecraft and Who Goes There by John Cambel jr the last the story both movies The Thing From Another World were based on

    Buzz Aldrin, West Point class of ‘51, grew up during WW II and graduated with the Nazis as a recent memory of what evil looks like. It is said, not officially, that when he and Neil Armstrong landed on the moon, there were a number of alien vehicles at the site. (A reason for Kubrick to shoot film for use by Nasa would be to have a visual narrative that could be shown to the public of a moon landing – without any UFOs or aliens. Imagine moon landing video filled with UFOs that the govt had been denying for over 20 years at that point.) I would take Buzz Aldrin to Antarctica for two reasons. First, do the aliens or tech in Antarctica look like what you saw in 1969. Second, as someone who’s lived with the reality of alien existence and presence, and possibly a Nazi-alien alliance and presence, for nearly 50 years, how would you suggest we introduce this reality to the public? Kerry, Patriarch, Kings, Pope – all will play a role in controlling humanity when the word goes out – Houston, we have an alien/alien-Nazi problem.

    • anakephalaiosis on January 17, 2024 at 7:38 pm

      Hollywood’s involvement suggests stage props, and special effects, for Wernher von Braun’s secretary Carol Rosin’s affidavit to come true.

      Spinning narratives, to justify taking out leadership of concern, around the globe, is regime change, by Coca Cola and MacDonald.

      In Europe, we can also spin crazy narratives, and pull a Shakespeare, on the gas pipelines being blown up, by overseas aliens.

      The American president is currently on another planet.

    Some years back, Cliff High used the then-public tracking of “fitbit” type devices, which people wore to track their “fitness,” to monitor their movements in various places. One of his surprises was the amount of traffic to and from Antarctica. Shortly after his videos talking about this showing his data, the web site was shut down or altered to exclude Antarctica, ending that particular project he had going.

    This was simsilar to the problem our army had with soldiers wearing those stupid things, allowing them to be tracked everywhere they went. Not too bright in combat situations and war zones.

    Anyway, I forget the numbers of people he was talking about, but it was huge, something on the order of several thousand per month, and that was excluding tourists. He had quite a bit to say about routes taken, etc.

    He has his own brand of stastical software which he uses to monitor and forcast various trends, and claims to be quite accurate with it.

    Just FYI, he can also be an odd duck at times.

    He also tells the story about his father being involved with the first uses of night vision gear in Vietnam, and how they had to switch from red to green screens in the devices because people using the red display models kept seeing demons flying in the air (and shooting at them, much to the dismay of the other helicopters in formation with them) and some people even going insane after using them. Very interesting if true.

  13. Henry Richardson on January 17, 2024 at 12:58 pm

    You can add to the list Argentine President Javier Milei, freshly elected to the Casa Rosada



    And remember, he’s supposed to be a “Climate denier”
    But there he goes, for an “ecological” visit. Like it’s a priority for the first 30 days in power.

    “Micro plastics” is the story du jour. Maybe he had to go in person, like Ketchup Kerry, to see the microplastics /climate change for himself.
    Or maybe he had some meetings with the Breakaway Masters…

  14. rohat77 on January 17, 2024 at 12:45 pm

    I just thought I would mention that Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House of Representatives U.S., and his wife stood on the shores of Antarctica also in early 2017.

    I found this from an article February 15, 2017 Washington Post website:

    “Newt Gingrich, an influential adviser to Trump when it comes to space issues, is among those pushing for a more entrepreneurial space program. In an email to The Washington Post, Gingrich, who said he was on a trip to Antarctica, blasted NASA for becoming an agency that avoids risk, and said the space program should leverage the enthusiasm and money of the many billionaires interested in commercializing space.”

    Since when did Newt become a space expert?!

    • Peter on January 17, 2024 at 3:16 pm

      Newt thinks he’s an expert in everything, especially history. he came into a store i worked once. he wasn’t an expert in what we sold, and actually needed my help!

      • rohat77 on January 17, 2024 at 5:32 pm

        LOL believable. Newt came from a few counties away in my home State of Georgia. I think he did a pretty good job during the Clinton years. Cheers!

  15. Robert Barricklow on January 17, 2024 at 12:31 pm

    Antarctica is where the Cosmic War governing Earth have based “Them”selves under the terms of The Cosmic Versailles Treaty.
    Where Earthing leadership is dressed-down; dressed-up[given new territory and/or objectives; and God knows what other motivations.
    And yes, Atlantis, too, was occupied territory.

    There needed to be an instrument from which to base operations; an instrument to enforce “policies”, much like Earth’s policy of sacrifices changed[ownership of the Cosmic Treaty changed].

    I wonder what kind of “tools” they have to motivate Earth’s leadership?
    Mind controls?
    Or, some other methods; simply “unthinkable” to resist?

    Like all ops, there will be layers of obfuscation.
    Think Roswell.
    So. “they be a list of cover stories – to fall back on, as one probes deeper.
    They’ll be rabbit holes leading hither and thither.

    Did Buzz Lightyear Aldrin break the veil?
    Was he meant to?

    For now, the above remains my basic frame; from which to “view” – Antarctica.

  16. 1pookadahooka on January 17, 2024 at 10:38 am

    I can’t help but think of Stephen King’s “Tommyknockers”. Whatever is down there in Antarctica that has these various parties cooperating, must be quite extraordinary. I also wonder who Buzz Aldrin is related to or has interests in common with. There are other astronaut candidates to have invited on the Antarctica Adventure…..why specifically him? Getting my popcorn, this will be interesting as it unfolds.

    • 1pookadahooka on January 17, 2024 at 10:48 am

      Further, I have to consider H.R. Giger’s artwork and what could have inspired those visions, and H.P. Lovecraft’s writing. Something in the collective memory?

  17. Henry Richardson on January 17, 2024 at 9:10 am

    1. The purpose, of the “divine right of kings” doctrine, is to gain superiority over creation, which is, what a thief does, when acquiring fruits of labour, as stolen goods, that he greedily desires.

    2. The Assyrian oligarchy wanted, to steal the British tin, and had no ships of its own, to control the sea route, which is, why dismantling an ethnostate, became the means of blackmail.

    3. Exploiting provinces and continents is, what makes the Vatican a much hated nuke magnet, and decapitation of Nineveh occurred, when the ethnostate destroyed the empire, in 612 BC.

    4. Virginia Slave Codes, of 1705, mark the turning point, when wilderness had been cultivated enough, for Assyro-European oligarchy, to set themselves up, on the New World continent.

    5. The land bridge, in the Bering Strait, is unavoidable, because decapitation of Wall Street is in popular demand, which is, why Antarctica attracts interest, from the Roman Catholic Church.

    6. Fortress Antarctica is surrounded, by an oceanic moat, like a medieval castle, with aerial drawbridges, where those, who stall in stone walls, can safekeep their stolen treasures.

    7. Decapitation of Antarctica will, eventually, become a neo-Scythian hobby, when the Vatican has relocated, to the icebox, and the penguins make revolt, against the filioque perversion.

    • anakephalaiosis on January 17, 2024 at 9:48 am

      BTW, when Daniel is making prophecy in Babylon, then he – as a slave scribe – is privy to oligarchic correspondence abroad, and therefore knowledgeable, about Assyrian oligarchy operating secretly, in Greek and Roman spheres.

      Daniel therefore knows, that an empire basically is a slave state, with a pump and dump scheme, that is concluded, with the culling of useless eaters, when the down-broken will, of the enslaved, has become too docile, to be profitable.

      Today, the expansion, of a series of Assyrian empires, has come to a halt, globally, which leaves Antarctica, as the last, desperate resort, where Assyrian oligarchy can enslave penguins, for the salt mines, while trying to be mysterious.

      Projecting secrecy, as elusive elites, shrouded, by a mystery behind a curtain, won’t work, because the game is up.

  19. Bizantura on January 17, 2024 at 6:54 am

    When one says “Atlantis” I always think of a civilization on and off planet. Pope Francis I always envision with horns, horns of the Devil, not horns of Wisdom. I wonder if it is mostly symbolic that he is going there, something in the vein they have to let the public know kind of thing! I wonder if the Vatican has a direct physical route underground to evil deep underground planet earth as I believe does whatever remnant of beings that survived and live in antartica. I wonder how many important earth nodes are in the hands of Fallen Angels? Maybe, going there physically has something to do “energetically” with the hart, changing it by those beings somehow? If those beings are short ranged in manipulating energies, physical attendans makes sense. Could Buzz Aldrin have refused the offer?

    • Barbara on January 17, 2024 at 12:35 pm

      Buzz Aldrin invitation to Antarctica was most likely due to his landing on Moon. His role was to compare beings he met on the Moon and these that were presented to him down at the South Pole.
      Interesting thing is that he has never used expression “pure evil” in regard to Moon operation.

      • Joseph P. Farrell on January 17, 2024 at 3:58 pm

        PLease remember that I was PARAPHRASING Aldrin’s alleged remarks on twitter, NOT quoting him.

        • anakephalaiosis on January 17, 2024 at 6:40 pm


          A space cowboy named Buzz,
          took a trip on a space bus,
          and landed on pancake
          up by the moon lake,
          where he made a lot of fuss.
