ANTARCTICA 1946-1947 (INTELLIHUB) — Operation Highjump (OpHjp) placed nearly 5000 U.S. military personnel and every resource available to the Navy’s disposal in the hands of Admiral Richard Byrd, the Operations Leader of the U.S. Naval mission int the Antarctic.
Although Byrd was chosen to lead the mission for a rather specific reason, he was also quite qualified and favored amongst the American public, the perfect candidate of choice by U.S. Navy and top brass. Additionally, another man by the name of Rear Admiral Richard Cruzen, was selected to head-up the task force.
Make no mistake, this was an unusual move for the American military at the time as people, nations and even world economies were still volatile from the previous war.
So why would the U.S. military be seeking to expend so many resources at risk of great loss to explore such a harsh region of the globe as Antarctica? What was the rush? What did they know?
A lot of the details regarding Operation Highjump have been carefully tucked away over the years. Wikipedia explains little about the mission officially titled “The United States Navy Antarctic Developments Program, 1946-1947″, reading:
A United States Naval operation organized by Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd Jr., USN (Ret), Officer in Charge, Task Force 68, and led by Rear Admiral Richard H. Cruzen, USN, Commanding Officer, Task Force 68. Operation Highjump commenced 26 August 1946 and ended in late February 1947. Task Force 68 included 4,700 men, 13 ships, and multiple aircraft. The primary mission of Operation Highjump was to establish the Antarctic research base Little America IV.
Highjump’s objectives, according to the U.S. Navy’s report of the operation, were:
- training personnel and testing equipment in frigid conditions;
- consolidating and extending United States sovereignty over the largest practicable area of the Antarctic continent (This was publicly denied as a goal even before the expedition ended);
- determining the feasibility of establishing, maintaining and utilizing bases in the Antarctic and investigating possible base sites;
- developing techniques for establishing, maintaining and utilizing air bases on ice, with particular attention to later applicability of such techniques to operations in interior Greenland, where conditions are comparable to those in the Antarctic;
- amplifying existing stores of knowledge of hydrographic, geographic, geological, meteorological and electro-magnetic propagation conditions in the area;
- supplementary objectives of the Nanook expedition. (The Nanook operation was a smaller equivalent conducted off eastern Greenland.)
Interestingly enough, many of the actual mission details were shrouded by secrecy, hidden from the American public. In fact, an excerpt from a report titled “The Antarctica Enigma” explains, “Little other information was released to the media about the mission, although most journalists were suspicious of its true purpose given the huge amount of military hardware involved.
The US Navy also strongly emphasized that Operation Highjump was going to be a navy show; Admiral Ramsey’s preliminary orders of 26th August 1946 stated that,“The Chief of Naval Operations only will deal with other governmental agencies” and that “no diplomatic negotiations are required. No foreign observers will be accepted.” Not exactly an invitation to scrutiny, even from other arms of the government.
Admiral Byrd was a strategic choice. He was a national hero to the Americans. He had pioneered ‘the way,’ a foundation for modern polar exploration and investigation (at the time). Byrd had undertaken many expeditions to Antarctica and was highly skilled and decorated. However, the task force itself remained strictly under the military command of Rear Admiral Richard Cruzen
Eventually, when the fleet was en route to Antarctica, the central group of ships entered the ice pack off the Ross Sea on 31st, December, 1946, and found conditions as bad as had been noted for over a century — deadly conditions. Cebreakers such as the USCGC Burton Island, a ship that had only recently been commissioned and was still undergoing sea trials off the Californian coast when Operation Highjump was launched, fought to cut a way through the ice to help the men land.”
But most importantly, Richard Cruzen was one of a few men to have located at several “oases” now secret areas of the Antarctic, touching on the real reason the expedition team was sent there in the first place. However, only people in-the-know with a special high-level government clearance would truly know the intended purpose of the expedition.
An excerpt from the Daviess County Historical Society reads, “According to a Navy report, 1,000 miles of new coastline was discovered on exploratory trips by the Bear and Byrd’s sea plane. Commended by Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox for his “superior seamanship, ability, courage, determination, efficiency and good judgment in dangerous emergencies,” Cruzen was one of the 16 members of the 1939-41 expedition who received the Antarctic Expedition Medal, presented in November 1946.
On Dec. 2, 1946, Cruzen once more set sail for the Antarctic continent. This time, as Task Force Commander under Admiral Byrd of the Navy’s Antarctic Developments Project also known as “Operation Highjump” Cruzen led a force of 13 ships carrying some 4,000 men, including meteorologists, zoologists, physicists and experts from oceanography institutes into the adventure of a lifetime.
Cruzen navigated through an ice pack of several hundred miles before reaching Little America. Icebergs and unpredictable weather were formidable foes during the course of the expedition.
Among the discoveries made during the 1946-47 expedition was the sighting of two “oases,” one a region of ice-free lakes and land. More than 300,000 square miles of unpathed territory were charted on aerial mapping operations. Their observations proved that radical changes would have to be made on existing maps of the Antarctic.”
Why would warm spots, with warm water exist in the Antarctic? What does this mean?
Besides looking for new scientific data, another purpose of the expedition was to train Navy personnel and to test standard Navy ships and other equipment in cold weather operations.
The Hollow Earth Theory
Researchers such as Dr. Brooks Agnew and others have deeply considered the possibility that the earth itself could be hollow, or egg-like.
Although this theory seems hard to comprehend as you have been told exactly opposite your entire life, entertain the idea for a moment.
What if the earth was hollow?
Would that be possible?
Is there evidence to back this up? The answer is yes.
Evidence shows that the earth rings like a bell after an earthquake for a period of up to about 60 minutes and that’s why some scientists and researchers say that this is due to the fact that the earth is hollow.
If the earth had a solid core, when and earthquake happened it would likely absorb all of vibration and not resonate it. This is just one detail that should open your mind to the possibility that a hollow planet is a possibility.
Famous author and lecture, David Icke, explains in his book, Moon Matrix, exactly how the moon is likely hollow as well. While Icke has been received lately harshly with criticisms, an ActivistPost.com article points out how, “Icke believes that the moon is an inter-dimensional, intensity portal for entities and energies from other dimensions. He believes that aliens use the moon as a home base for hijacking signals from the universe so that our bodily forms that are experiencing this virtual reality on Earth, can’t fully experience what our creator meant for it to be. These aliens are the same reptilian shape-shifters that Icke claims are responsible for much of suffering on our planet. Reptilians want to filter anything beyond our five senses so that it manipulates what kind of world we can experience.”
I myself have been privy to interview David Icke and other hollow earth experts personally–pushing me further into accepting that this can be an actual possibility.
In the following clip, Icke explains how he believes the moon is rather too large to be orbiting earth.
If that is just too much for you, let’s bring you back down to earth.
History in virtually every culture and civilization across the planet and throughout time, has documented what appears to be the existence of a hollow earth.
According to Dr. Brooks Agnew, who I have personally interviewed many times, a hollow earth is a very real possibility. Agnew has focused his studies to the North Pole region, as him and his team plan to one day locate a documented “polar depression” thus launching test overflights from a “nuclear powered icebreaker”.
Brooks and his team plan a scientific expedition to the brim of the hollow earth, which proves to been unsuccessful at this time due to a lack of funding.
Brooks plans to use a “sun compass” and a “gyroscope”above the 60th parallel to get accurate measurements of the oceanic depression. If the rate of change begins to increase than likely you would be entering the longed elusive polar depression, reported by the ancient Vikings and modern-day seamen alike.
During an interview on Red Ice Radio, Agnew talked about the formation of planets, Sir Isaac Newton, and the difference between “thick” and “thin” crust physics, zero gravity and more. The episode is very interesting to say the least. Essentially what Agnew is talking about is a rather large “Graviton”. You know, those rides at the county fair that spin real fast, sticking you to the wall as the floor lowers. I can smell the funnel cake and the cotton candy now.
The interview Agnew, continues to get into the possibility of a hollow earth, questioning the possibility of advanced life within. Agnew explains how migration patterns of birds could be proof that something to the nature of a hollow earth exists, as birds are migrating north for winter in some cases, retreating to a warm area.
It was also rumored that the U.S. Navy encountered UFOs during the Antarctic expedition. A brief clip of this was allegedly caught on film.
Some also speculate that mermaids and other rare creatures may derive from the inner earth, sometimes making their way into the upper waters divided by the firmament.
