Antarctica Just Became Even Stranger…

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
May 21, 2017

Just when you thought it was safe to revisit the subject of Antarctica, or perhaps, even thought it was the one safe place on Earth to vacation – perhaps lounge on the shore and throw in your fishing line, or have a nice leisurely ski vacation, or maybe just to sit by the fire, enjoying a good book and a brandy and cigar – the place seems to defy sense. It refuses to go away or walk quietly off the stage. Just when you think the curtain has gone down on all the high strangeness there, strangeness struts onstage again.

But this one may be even stranger than strange.

Yes, that’s right, stranger than the strangeness of people associated with the place. Stranger than Hermann Goering, Patriarch Kiril III of Moscow, John Kerry. Even stranger than Apollo astronaut Buz Aldrin.

In fact, it’s so stranger that when people sent me various articles about it, I didn’t believe it. But then I found something that confirmed the wild articles people were sending me on a government website. But when I read the website, I not only said “You’re kidding,” but I made an exact print out of it, to make a picture, so I can post it here along with the link, should said government decide to live down to its reputation as perfide Albion and remove its posting. To use the colloquialism, I was gobsmacked when I read it. So, with a big “thank you” to all of you who found this story, without further ado, the link:

Foreign travel advice British Antarctic Territory

Ice-is? Britain issues terrorism warning for Antarctica… & security experts aren’t impressed

And here’s the pictures:


UK Antarctica Travel Alert Article

Now, a simple search through the website reveals what is just routine boilerplate: How to get married in Antarctica, and so on. Easily programmed by any competent programmer tasked with the monstrous job of programming a government website: “How to get married in [fill in the blank here]; contact the [Fill in the appropriate bureaucracy here].” Hence, when we come to the lines advising “Take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance (the appropriate link follows), specifying Antarctica, before you travel,” one can be fairly certain that the entire sentence was simple standard programmed boilerplate, and that “Antarctica” is the variable here.

So in that context, consider this line:

“Although there’s no recent history of terrorism in the British Antarctic Territory, attack’s can’t be ruled out.”

And then follows yet another helpful link to aid you in planning your fun-filled family vacation to New Brighton-on-the-ice.

Now, 98% of me thinks the line is just standard, pre-programmed boilerplate, the usual bland “we’re your government and we’re here to pretend we’re being helpful” sort of thing. After all, access to Antarctica is strictly controlled; in fact, it’s the one place on earth where borders are strictly controlled, and so far, the controllers don’t seem too interested in setting up cells of ISIS, Al Qaeda,  Daesh, the Irish Republican Army, Irgun, Bakhuninites, or whatever its current “approved-name-of-the-month” happens to be.

It’s that remaining 2% that bothers me (as you probably guessed), for suppose that the “travel alert” is not standard boiler plate. High octane speculation? To be sure. But suppose, for a moment, it’s not boiler plate. That would mean, in turn, that the door has been cracked, just a bit, to reveal that the southern polar continent is a place of violence, not global warming, not increasing ozone holes, not melting icecaps, not oddly and unusually warm weather, but a place of human violence. A place where some sort of war is being waged. A place where the stakes are high enough that terrorism is a viable strategy.

I read that line, and I cannot help but think of the three part article that appeared in Nexus magazine in late 2005 and early 2006, recounting via the usual “anonymous whistleblower” a story of SIS commandos fighting it out on the southern polar ice with “polar men.” I cannot help but think of last year’s trip of US Secretary of State John Kerry to the continent; I cannot help but think of the Patriarch of Moscow’s visit, of Buzz Aldrin’s visit, of Hermann Goering’s sponsorship of a Nazi expedition there. And when I put the announcement in that context, that slim 2% would seem, in my opinion, to grow…

While you’re contemplating all that, consider this article from RT:

Russia, US remove potential ‘dirty bomb’ parts from Antarctica

That’s right… those reactors down there could be snatched up by terrorists posing as tourists… or… perhaps someone else left “dirty bomb parts” down there…

What’s Up Down There In Antarctica?

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
May 1, 2017

It’s beginning to be the case that I almost need a special “Antarctica” tab for this website, because it seems the strangeness of stories coming out of there just keeps coming. This week, so many people saw one version or another of this story that I know they were thinking what I am thinking: could this be the reason for the strangeness of the stories about the place lately?

Possibly. But before we get to all that, a brief memory refresher. Regular readers of my books and of this website know just how peculiar Antarctica really is, not so much because it’s covered in ice, and is inaccessible, but rather because a very strange list of people are associated with it, and with those people, there are also strange stories. By now, we can probably recite the list of strange people associated with Antartica by heart:

(1)  Rudolf Hess, (2) Hermann Goering, (3) Admiral Byrd, (4) King Juan Carlos, (5) Prince Harry (or was it William… they all look the same), (6) Secretary of State John Kerry, (7) the Patriarch of Moscow, Kiril III, (8) Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin, and, lest we forget, the elements of the Russian Baltic Sea Fleet are scheduled for a visit.

The stories have been almost as strange as the list. Admiral Byrd and Operation High Jump, as readers here know, returned from an expedition to the continent that was supposed to have lasted months, after only a few weeks. Along the way back home, Byrd reportedly gave an interview to a reporter for El Mercurio of Santiago de Chile, in which he warned that the United States would have to prepare to defend itself against “enemy fighters” (leaving the enemy unspecified) that could fly from pole to pole with tremendous speed. And of course, there are the stories of secret Nazi flying saucer bases under the ice (a story I’ve never bought, incidentally), a couple of Adolf Hitler survived in Antarctica stories. President Clinton contributed his own bizarre story by holding a press conference during his administration about a meteor from Mars that was allegedly found in Antarctica, which meteor also evidently contained microbial sized fossilized life.

As if it couldn’t possibly get any stranger, there were also those stories several years ago that the Russians had “found something” near their installations at the vast under-ice lake Vostok; there were emergency evacuations at that time of people becoming suddenly sick (which of course fueled the rumor mill); perhaps the weirdest of all the stories was that the Saudis found something during an excavation around the Grand Mosque at Mecca, something which so terrified them that they turned it over to the Russians, who promptly (so the story goes) took it to Antarctica where Patriarch Kiril “performed ancient rituals” over it. Well, needless to say, I don’t buy that story either (the part about the Saudis finding “something” and then turning it over to the Orthodox Christian “infidels” just isn’t washing with me), but I mention it for the sake of completeness.

Then Buzz Aldrin decided, within mere days of Secretary John Kerry’s visit, to visit the southern continent, and before boarding the flight in South Africa that would take him there, he tweeted he was getting ready to “go to the launchpad,” a statement that I pointed out at the time could be taken as “astronautese” for boarding the airplane, or that it might mean that Antarctica was the “launchpad.” Then, while in Antarctica, Aldrin gets sick, and has to be evacuated. A variant on the story also had him tweeting that what had been discovered was some “absolute evil.”

Oh, and let’s not forget, Lockheed Martin of Black Projects Fame also has a presence in Antarctica. Buzz Aldrin, John Kerry,  Kiril III, Herman Goering, Rudolf Hess, and Lockheed Martin.

That’s quite a line-up. The stuff of a bad Hollyweird B movie.

Well, now we might finally have a glimpse of what all the ruckus has been about:

Mysterious shapes and patterns discovered in Arctic and Antarctic sea floor

Of course, there is the usual blather that all this represents nothing strange or bizarre at all: all those polygons and so on are merely what happens when minerals and ice freeze. No argument from me.  But of course, this doesn’t really explain why Kerry Kiril and Aldrin would be so keen to visit beautiful scenic Antarctica. I suspect, however, in the case of the second image, that the freezing-polygon explanation falls “a little short,” for I don’t know about you, but something sure looks artificial to me. And – what the heck – I’m willing to crawl out to the extreme end of the twig of speculation on this one, and say that my first thought, when I saw this picture, was that it looked like an electrical coil or installation of some sort. We’re given no idea of the scale of what we’re looking at, but it looks like “input, coil, output” to me.

In short, it looks like a “something”, and that certainly would account for Kerry, Aldrin, Kiril, and Lockheed-Martin and the Russian Baltic Sea fleet. The real question is, did Hess and Goering have similar information, and if so, how did they come by it?

Trump, Pence, Buzz & Mars

Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
April 1, 2017

You’ll recall that yesterday I blogged about an anti-aging drug now being readied for human trials, and NASA’s interest in it. The drug worked by triggering genetic markers that accelerate cellular repair, a handy thing to have around if one is planning long space voyages with the prolonged exposure to solar radiation.  There was a little method to my madness, for it is now official: President Trump has signed a law calling for manned missions to Mars to be the chief goal of NASA for the next decade, and, believe it or not, it passed both houses of Congress unanimously, according to this article shared by Ms. B.Z. from the United Kingdom’s Daily Mail: We’re off to Mars says Trump as he signs a law for NASA to have manned missions to the red planet by the 2030s. Now, we’ve seen similar objectives concerning Mars being made all the way back in the administration of GHW Bush, who directed NASA to make Mars manned missions the goal. President Bill Clinton repeated this during his tenure in the White House, it was reiterated yet again during the administration of GW Bush and subsequently of President Obama. In short, Mars has been on the presidential wish list for quite a while, and yet, nothing by way of manned space flights seem to be accomplished: America has no operational heavy booster, and has to hitch-hike on Russia’s Energia boosters (doubtless another evil plot by the criminal mastermind and super-genius Vladimir Putin to cripple the American space program). What appears to be different in this case it that it is an actual law:

NASA ‘shall continue the development of the fully integrated Space Launch System, including an upper stage needed to go beyond low-Earth orbit, in order to safely enable human space exploration of the Moon, Mars, and beyond over the course of the next century,’ said the text.

This law reaffirms ‘our national commitment to the core mission of NASA,’Trump said, signing the text in the presence of numerous elected officials including former Republican rivals, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.

But I cannot help but wonder if there is a much wider story behind all this. Recall that during his administration, President Clinton made a formal announcement from the White House that a meteorite from Mars contained clear indications of microbial life. Incidentally, the meteorite was found in…

(drum roll please)

…Antarctica. (See President Clinton Statment Regarding Mars Meteorite Discovery)

Then, Mr. B sent the following article, which appeared just a few days before the signing of this law; Vice-President Pence, it seems, had a little “Chat” with former Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin:

Buzz Aldrin: Pence Offered Few Details of Space Policy in White House Meeting

Aldrin, one should remember, has been urging manned missions to return to the Moon for some time, and more importantly, manned missions to Mars, in particular to explore the Martian moon Phobos. But in the article above, mention is made of reviving the National Space Council:

Pence is widely expected in the space community to take a leading role in the development of the Trump administration’s space policy. Statements of the Trump campaign’s proposed policy made prior to the November election said that the administration would reestablish the National Space Council, which last operated when George H. W. Bush was president. At that time, and in earlier administrations, the council was led by the vice president. “He is excited about doing the space council,” Robert Walker, the former chairman of the House Science Committee who crafted that campaign position, said of Pence in a December interview. “He has expressed absolute excitement about that particular role. I think that will be a place where he will find time for it.”

That council was, of course, under then vice-president Lyndon Johnson, one of the major driving forces behind the Mercury-Gemini-Apollo era of NASA’s “golden age” of manned space flight. Notably, however, the article is rather tight-lipped about what Aldrin and the Vice President talked about, though clearly it was about space policy. Then, days later, the law about Mars…All of this, you might imagine, has my high octane speculative motor working in over-drive, for Aldrin’s visit with Pence follows, of course, his little junket to Antarctica, which followed former Secretary of State John Kerry’s visit, who in turn followed the Patriarch of Moscow. So what’s my high octane speculation here? Well, as I originally thought, and still do, they found something down there, and it may not have been just another meteorite from Mars containing fossilized microbial life. It may have been a meteorite containing or preserving something else entirely, say, something clearly artificial and the product of a technology. Whatever it was, it was something that raised the “urgency meter” into the red zone, requiring many “visitors” to go down and have a “look for themselves”, and to urge the President, not simply to issue executive orders or statements about NASA priorities, as was done from GHW Bush to Barack Obama, but rather, to pass a law, one that, again, gained unanimous support in Congress. In short, this law and this event I am viewing as directly related to whatever it is going on in Antarctica.  To my mind, folks, that means something is definitely up down there, and up there on the red planet. Oh yea, and while you’re doing all this speculative calculus about what’s possibly going on, don’t forget that Lockheed-Martin is also in Antarctica…

Who Owns Antarctica & How Much is It Worth?

James F. Quaid
March 19, 2017

“A static hero is a public liability. Progress grows out of motion” ~Adm. Richard E. Byrd

Are the strange and sometimes bizarre stories about Antarctica coming to a head? And what does it have to do with trillions missing from the US government?

Let’s take note of numerous stories that we have been posting at the Solari Report in recent months.


Over the past months, there have been some interesting visitations to the South Pole. Traveling to Antarctica is not a trivial pursuit nor is it without risks and the expense is great. Many of us have been wondering why all the “A”-list boots on the ground?..


NASA recently released some very interesting high tech images of what appear to be ancient human structures 2.3 kilometers or 1.4 miles under the ice sheet.

The “” that is sited in Dr. Farrell’s story is somehow having issues displaying the page. To be filed under “Hmmm?” But, Dr. Farrell again, presents his usual excellent commentary and analysis on this subject. That should have been front page news across the globe. So, a few master of the obvious questions: When was this discovery made? What else was found and how long has the cover up been in place? But, there is “out in the open” evidence that there is strong motivation for continued on and under the ice research.


Evidence of this strong motivation can be seen by the huge investment in Antarctica. Recently, SAIC one of the premier Military Industrial Complex players spun off a very interesting subsidiary “Leidos”. Leidos has been selected for a large Antarctic infrastructure support contract.

Leidos is not new to our readers, as it is the company to which Lockheed Martin spun off its Information Systems and Global Solutions division as noted in Lockheed Cuts & Runs.


For the subscribers and fans of the Solari Report, you know “Missing Money” has been a long time, multi venue Solari Report investigation.(See link below.) Could this be a clue to where all the MIA DOD $Trillions have been going? How much Antarctic infrastructure has been constructed and for what purposes? Why has NASA released this info? AND what other revelations will come from this “tip of the iceberg” news release?

The Financial Coup d’État & Missing Money: Links
Solari Report | 17 January 2017

The President’s new budget blueprint recognizes our $20 trillion in debt. However, it does not show a receivable or other balance sheet asset for $11+ trillion missing.  Before we try to balance the budget without it, let’s put Antartica and all the other potential assets back on the table.

Stay tuned..

Antarctic Atlantis: Human Settlements Under All That Ice Down There?

Antarctica, Surfer Magazine | Antartica
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
March 19, 2017

Just when you thought that Antarctica could not possibly become any stranger, reality comes along and upsets things. And it certainly has been strange. For one thing, temperatures in the southern polar continent have been on average about 20 degrees warmer than normal, and I even read a report that certain places in Antarctica reached a balmy 63.5 degrees Fahrenheit, and that indeed was very convenient, because we were told that the strange visits of former Secretary of State John Kerry and Apollo 11 astronaut Buzz Aldrin were all about “climate change.” Well, indulge my high octane speculation for a moment: if one can manipulate weather systems, then boosting the temperature in Antarctica a bit to “help out the narrative” would not be all that farfetched, if one grants the assumption. And personally, I put nothing past these people. “See? it got up to 63.5 degrees Fahrenheit! So Kerry’s visit was about climate change. Nothing to see here, move along.”

Except that Kerry isn’t the only one to have shown a sudden interest in Antarctica. Readers of this website and of my books will know that he’s but the most recent famous visitor and world leader to take an interest in the continent, a list which includes Admiral Richard Byrd, King Juan Carlos of Spain, Prince What’s-his-name from Great Britain, Kiril III Patriarch of Moscow, and oh yes, did we mention the Nazi expedition and its sponsors Rudolf Hess – who ended up in Great Britain in May of 1941 for reasons that are still difficult to fathom and then spent the rest of his life in Spandau prison, where his British physician discovered reasons to believe that “Hess” was not Hess, while Frau Hess adamantly maintained he was, &c. – and Hermann Goering. One made add to this list the planned visit of elements of Russia’s Baltic Sea Fleet, which, as I pointed out a few weeks ago, was not known for the success of its half-way-round-the-world junkets (see the Russo-Japanese War, Admiral Rozhdestvenski, Admiral Togo, &c.). A strange mix indeed: Orthodox Patriarchs, US diplomats and astronauts, British and Spanish royalty, the Deputy Fuehrer of Nazi Germany (not as a visitor, but as an “interested party”) and the founder and head of the Luftwaffe (again, not as a visitor but as an “interested party”), and an American admiral and a few U.S. Marines.

Nothing to see here, move along.

In my previous high octane speculations about all this Antarctimania I’ve suggested that there might be four basic reasons for all this interest (1) “they” had need to conduct secret negotiations with “someone” and where better to do it than balmy Antarctica, where access is strictly controlled; or (2) “they” had found something down there, of an extraterrestrial nature, either life or technology or both; or (3) “they” had found something relating to humanity’s distant past and perhaps to the legend of Atlantis (after all, Antarctica is a continent submerged under lots of water in the form of ice); or (4) some combination of elements, or all, of the above.

With that in mind, consider this article shared by Mr. B.H. (and many others), for it looks like options (3) and (4) might now be the main contenders in our list of high octane speculative options:

Note the opening two paragraphs:

WASHINGTON | Recently released remote sensing photography of NASA’s Operation IceBridge mission in Antarctica led to a fascinating discovery when images revealed what some experts believe could be the existence of a possible ancient human settlement lying beneath an impressive 2.3 kilometers of ice.

The intriguing discovery was made during aircraft tests trials of NASA’s Advanced Topographic Laser Altimeter System (ATLAS) lidar technology set to be launched on the Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) in 2017, that aims to monitor changes in polar ice.

I don’t know about you, but assuming that these photos are genuine, the image on the right clearly looks artificial to me, and an Indian archaeologist, Ashoka Tripathi, as noted in the article, concurs:

“These are clearly features of some sort of human-made structure, resembling some sort of pyramidal structure. The patterns clearly show nothing we should expect from natural geomorphological formations found in nature. We clearly have here evidence of human engineering. The only problem is that these photographs were taken in Antarctica under 2 kilometers of ice. That is clearly the puzzling part, we do not have any explanation for this at the moment,” he admits.

The problem, as noted, is that this is buried under two kilometers – that’s about 1.2 miles for those of you still using the more scientific imperial metrology – and that raises the problem of how such a habitation became encrusted with about a mile of ice. Predictably, the explanation runs to the Piri Reis map:

“One of histories most puzzling maps is that of the Turkish admiral Piri Reis in 1513 AD which successfully mapped the coastline of Antarctica over 500 years ago. What is most fascinating about this map is that it shows the coastline of Antarctica without any ice. How is this possible when images of the subglacial coastline of Antarctica were only seen for the first time after the development of ground-penetrating radar in 1958? Is it possible Antarctica has not always been covered under such an ice sheet? This could be evidence that it is a possibility” he acknowledges.

« A slight pole shift or displacement of the axis of rotation of the Earth in historical times is possibly the only rational explanation that comes to mind but we definitely need more research done before we jump to any conclusion.”

What I find so incredible here is that the final two paragraphs are being advanced by Cambridge University cartographer Christopher Adam, who also appears to be accepting of the hypothesis that has been bandied about in alternative research for decades as an explanation for the 16th century Turkish admiral’s map and its highly anomalous depiction of the coastline of Antarctica without ice. The topic of axial rotational shift and even crustal displacement was first advanced by science teacher Charles Hapgood who made an extensive study of the Piri Reis map in his classic study, Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings. Hapgood subsequently wrote a book about his theory of crustal displacement, with a foreword by none other than Dr. Albert Einstein. Let it also be noted, as I pointed out in my book The Financial Vipers of Venice, that in the marginalia of the Piri Reis map, the Turkish admiral also states that Christopher Columbus had mediaeval maps of the new world, and undertook a secret journey to the New World prior to his famous “voyage of discovery” in 1492, but that’s another story.

What’s intriguing of course is to contemplate when such an event might have occurred, and my high octane intuition suggests that this might have been concurrent with some ancient catastrophe, such as blowing up a planet in a war, the shock waves of which might have concussed the Earth, tipping it slightly, and burying an entire continent under lots of water which froze. And let’s remember, in Plato’s accounting of the Atlantis myth, the “lost continent” was known for its warlike ways.

So if this is human habitation, it certainly would be a significant enough discovery to call forth the attentions of US Secretaries of State, Patriarchs of Moscow, Baltic Sea Fleets, and Apollo 11 moon astronauts, for it would be an attestation of the truthfulness – in some degree – of the Atlantis myth. Recall however, that in that myth, it is strongly suggested that Atlantis was possessed of “technologies of war” that would be of interest as well, which might rationalize the attentions of American Admirals, Nazi Party Reichsleiters and the founder of the Luftwaffe. The problem there of course, is whether they knew of such things, and if so, how, since it is buried under lots of ice, and radar tomography from satellites did not develop until after World War Two.

So if it’s a human(or other) habitation, how does one investigate? Well, one way, of course, is to drill down through the ice and carefully excavate a subterranean chamber for conventional archaeological study.

And the other way, of course, is simply to melt the ice, while calling it “climate change.”
