Joe Fex is our guest and he has one of the largest UFO image collections in the world....he shares with us Nazi UFO and flying saucer program pics from the personal collection of Col. Wendelle Stevens. He also shares for the very first time probably the most important UFO image of all time: the 1911 France image.


He speaks about his photos of Antarctica, acquired from Wendall Stevens


Adm. Byrd's Base camp in Antarctica (at night)
( see post #7, until I can get a better copy)
starting at 1:16
JF: Whole series of anomolous lights in the photo
JG: Admiral Byrd photo: shows a disk object above base camp (1:21)
JF: Original photo was cleaned up
+ "700-900 below out there" : why take a base camp photo?
(at 1:24 hours ): "the smoking gun... the only thing to substantiate the myth"
+ I spoke with Commander Graham Bethune (last survivor)
+ "He almost cried... It blew his mind" (seeing the photo)
+ He said they filmed fleets of UFO's that had approached the base
+ They did not return until 1930... No one spoke about UFO's at the time

(Is this the guy - last survivor?):



Obit of the Day: Last Survivor of the U.S. Antarctic Service Expedition


Anthony Wayne, the last surviving member of the U.S. Antarctic Service Expedition

- better known as Admiral Byrd’s Third Antarctic Expedition.


Chief Warrant Officer Wayne was only a seaman when he joined the legendary Admiral Richard Byrd on the explorer’s third expedition to the South Pole*. CWO Wayne was one of 125 men who originally left the United States on two ships, the USS Bear of Oakland and the USS North Star.

The first expedition led by Adm. Byrd that had the official backing the government, President Franklin Roosevelt sent the Admiral and his men to Antarctica with the mission of setting up two base in the remote location.


Traveling to the South Pole in 1939 was an experience known only to a few men on Earth. CWO Wayne signed up simply out of curiousity wondering, “Who the hell goes there?” He remembers seeing snowdrifts twenty feet high and countless icebergs.

The expedition successfully built the two camps but Admiral Byrd and his team were called back to the United States in 1940. War had erupted in Europe and it only be months until the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.

VIDEO : Byrd's First Antarctic Expedition 1928



Lieutenant Commander Richard Byrd departed Boston 17 June 1925 onboard the SS Peary, a former minesweeper, with three Loening amphibian aircraft on loan from the Navy. He was headed to Greenland as part of the MacMillan Expedition. Besides Navy endorsement, he was also supported by the National Geographic Society and had the backing of Edsel Ford, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., and others. This would be the first attempt to utilize naval aviation in the exploration of the Arctic regions and would particularly encounter the difficulties of navigation in the far north. Byrd’s naval aviation detachment would consist of himself along with fellow naval aviators Floyd Bennett, A.C. Nold, and Chief Boatswain’s Mate Earl E. Reber. Support personnel were Aviation Machinist’s Mate 1st Class Charles F. Rocheville, Lieutenant M.A. Schur and two other civilians: Albert A. Francis, who served as the aerographer, and N.P. Sorenson, a mechanic.

First Antarctic expedition, 1928–1930

Byrd's expedition

In 1928, Byrd began his first expedition to the Antarctic involving two ships, and three airplanes: Byrd's Flagship was The City of New York (a Norwegian sealing ship previously named Samson that had come into fame as a ship in the vicinity of Titanic when the latter was sinking); a Ford Trimotor called the Floyd Bennett (named after the recently deceased pilot of Byrd's previous expeditions); a Fairchild FC-2W2, NX8006, built 1928, named "Stars And Stripes" (now displayed at the Virginia Aviation Museum, on loan from the National Air and Space Museum); and a Fokker Universal monoplane called the Virginia (Byrd's birth state). A base camp named "Little America" was constructed on the Ross Ice Shelf and scientific expeditions by snowshoe, dog-sled, snowmobile, and airplane began. Photographic expeditions and geological surveys were undertaken for the duration of that summer, and constant radio communications were maintained with the outside world. After their first winter, their expeditions were resumed, and on 28 November 1929, the famous flight to the South Pole and back was launched. Byrd, along with pilot Bernt Balchen, co-pilot/radioman Harold June, and photographer Ashley McKinley, flew the Ford Trimotor to the South Pole and back in 18 hours, 41 minutes. They had difficulty gaining enough altitude, and they had to dump empty gas tanks, as well as their emergency supplies, in order to achieve the altitude of the Polar Plateau. However, the flight was successful, and it entered Byrd into the history books.


As a result of his notoriety, Byrd was promoted to the rank of rear admiral by a special act of Congress on December 21, 1929. As he was only 41 years old at the time, this promotion made Byrd the youngest admiral in the history of the United States Navy

What'll You Do for Your Centennial?
Explorer Col. Norman Vaughan has big plans for his birthday As told to Claire Antoszewski


Explorer Col. Norman Vaughan


Col. Norman Vaughan, the last living member of Admiral Richard E. Byrd's 1928-1930 Antarctic expedition (the first to fly over the South Pole), has also raced a dog-team in the 1932 Olympic Games, led more than 200 rescue dogs in World War II's Battle of the Bulge, and competed in the Iditarod 13 times. Some heart trouble has kept him from mushing of late, but for his 100th birthday, the "Indomitable Snowman" from Salem, Massachusetts, plans a trip that would test the hearts of men half his age. He's no blowhard, but after 99 years on Earth, he's not short on advice, either.

I was born on December 19, 1905. For my 100th birthday, I plan to go back to Antarctica and climb the mountain that's named for me.

I climbed Mount Vaughan for the first time just before my 89th birthday. I was very glad to be the first person to climb it. It's a very rugged mountain. There are long glaciers on both the north and south sides. I am planning to climb the south glacier which has anywhere between a 30- and 50-degree slope.

"Did They See Plasma UFOs?" An Unearthly Admiral Richard E. Byrd Story
By Mike Boss



Years ago, I read an article by UFO and paranormal author Joe Fex on some very strange happenings at Little America in Antarctica during the Byrd Antarctic Expedition in 1930. It would be rather lengthy to go into the story of Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd and the possibility of mysterious things occurring on his different expeditions and missions, but there is a fair share of evidence of pointing to a cover up.




Joe came into possession of an unretouched UFO photograph which was scientifically checked in a laboratory for tampering. The image distributed for public consumption (see right of this column), at least a 1931 copy in my possession, certainly appears to have been doctored - a - plenty! For instance, a star background made by spattering paint from a toothbrush! Joe's original photograph seems to show possible plasma UFOs near the towers and was possibly sent out under wraps from the Office of Naval Intelligence...by none other than Richard Byrd.


In 2004, Joe was visiting with Texas author Jim Marrs and they were having a discussion on finding leads to anyone who flew with Byrd. The Laughllin, Nevada conversation ended in a Cosmic surprise. They happened to be sitting next to Graham Bethune, pilot and seasoned UFO researcher. He indeed vouched for the authenticity of the photograph saying the UFOs were plasma driven. He and Byrd often flew together including Operaton High Jump and in later years became close friends.


I certainly found this story intriguing to my core. Artist's license was used in bringing the Ford Tri-Motor "Floyd Bennett" out of its snow revetment.

Joe's article can be found in the March-April, 2009 issue of Fate Magazine.

Antarctica is certainly an interesting area I wonder what the real reasons were behind the Falklands war? Would be interesting place to explore?


I think the British had an expedition to Antarctica to track down Nazis, I thought they set off before Adm Byrde. A local guy I know was in the military and he claimed that stories are still told about a battle in the southern Atlantic where the ships were attacked by an unknown force.



1. Was it a planned war between Argentina and British Government to whip up patriotism and rally ailing economies – arms deals and all


2. Access to rich mineral resources in the Antarctica?


3. Secret military bases / bunkers in case of WW3


4. I doubt they get chemtrails down there, nothing mentioned online. its the sort of place the elites are likely to hide


5. We’ve got the German occult Thule society & Thule Island in Southern Atlantic

There are said to be Reptilians down there.


I think that Mark Richards told Kerry Cassidy that the Reptoids have a base on St George's Island


Maybe they were flying the craft people have seen.

Nordics are reported there, but it might be a disguise that the Reptoids learned to use

from contacts with Vikings, hundreds of years ago.


At some point, I want to talk to my man (Dr RAM) about what he saw there, if he is willing

"Hitler takes the Holy Lance to Antarctica"

1938 Hitler's Uranium Club: The Yellowcake Cartel (House of Bernadotte) ZERO-Systement: from Ørland Atlantis Nordstern Neu Drontheim to Lutvann XU Oslo to Monaco Monte-Carlo Malvinas Queen Maud Land | The third German Antarctic Expedition (1938--1939) was led by Alfred Ritscher (1879--1963), a captain in the Kriegsmarine. The main purpose was to find an area in Antarctica for a German whaling station, as a way to increase Germany's production of fat. Whale oil was then the most important raw material for the production of margarine and soap in Germany and the country was the second largest purchaser of Norwegian whale oil, importing some 200,000 metric tonnes annually. Another goal was to scout possible locations for a German naval base.

Lars Christensen, born in Sandar, started his career as a ship owner in 1906. He ventured into whaling in 1909, and directed several companies, including Framnæs Mekaniske Værksted, AS Thor Dahl, AS Odd, AS Ørnen, AS Thorsholm and Bryde og Dahls Hvalfangstselskap.

Christensen had a deep interest in Antarctica. He financed several expeditions specifically devoted to the exploration of the Antarctic continent, and participated in some of these himself, even bringing his wife Ingrid with him in the 1936--1937 expedition.

During WWII, Christensen was Counsellor of Finance at Royal Norwegian Embassy in Washington, DC.

Interesting revelation here




Adm. Richard Byrd (of Highjump fame) had a cousin, D.H. Bird who has an interesting role in History.

He was the OWNER of the Texas book depository, from which Lee Harvey Oswald was said to have shot JFK



Byrd was born in Winchester, Virginia, the son of Esther Bolling (Flood) and Richard Evelyn Byrd, Sr. He was a descendant of one of the First Families of Virginia.


170px-Sedgeford_portrait.jpg : 7d10f9af11e23dd8576214bb805216bf--native

His ancestors include planter John Rolfe and his wife Pocahontas, William Byrd II of Westover Plantation, who established Richmond, and Robert "King" Carter, a colonial governor. He was the brother of Virginia Governor and U.S. Senator Harry F. Byrd, a dominant figure in the Virginia Democratic Party from the 1920s until the 1960s; their father served as Speaker of the Virginia House of Delegates for a time.

. . .

Operation Highjump (1946–1947)

Cover of Byrd's Autobiography
Admiral Byrd during Operation Deep Freeze I (Dec. 1955)

In 1946, Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal appointed Byrd as officer in charge of Antarctic Developments Project. Byrd's fourth Antarctic expedition was codenamed Operation Highjump.[2] It was the largest Antarctic expedition to date and was expected to last six to eight months.

The expedition was supported by a large naval force (designated Task Force 68), commanded by Rear Admiral Richard H. Cruzen. There were thirteen US Navy support ships (besides the flagship USS Mount Olympus and the aircraft carrier USS Philippine Sea), six helicopters, six flying boats, two seaplane tenders, and fifteen other aircraft. The total number of personnel involved was over 4,000.

The armada arrived in the Ross Sea on December 31, 1946, and made aerial explorations of an area half the size of the United States, recording ten new mountain ranges. The major area covered was the eastern coastline of Antarctica from 150 degrees east to the Greenwich meridian.


Byrd was an active Freemason. He became a member of Federal Lodge No. 1, Washington, D.C. on March 19, 1921 and affiliated with Kane Lodge No. 454, New York City, September 18, 1928. He was a member of National Sojourners Chapter No. 3 at Washington. In 1930, Byrd was awarded a gold medal by the Kane Lodge.[39]

In 1931 Byrd joined the Tennessee Society of the Sons of the American Revolution. He received the Society's War Service Medal for his service during the First World War.

Byrd also belonged to numerous other organizations including the Century Club, Explorers Club, The Country Club in Brookline, Massachusetts and Lions Clubs in Washington D.C.

OLD WINE in a new bottle?


"The alliance is now more powerful than the cabal," says David Wilcock,

in this interview that Jimmy Church did with D-Wilcock for Coast to Coast .

(it may have been already posted above under a different title - but worth a listen for those who did not hear it)


Atlantis Has Been Found Under Antarctica BREAKING STORY

Published on Aug 8, 2017 (might have been before that)


Author, lecturer, and researcher of ancient civilizations, David Wilcock joined Jimmy Church (Fade To Black) for a discussion on recent discoveries indicating Antarctica may actually have been Atlantis. Wilcock says he is in contact with "at least two insiders who directly advise Presidents of the United States" who have been steadily feeding him "Cosmic Top Secret" information for many years. He claimed that this information is not revealed to Presidents because they could slip up or be forced to tell the public what they know. He believes that there is a global power struggle going on that has reached a critical stage and made many elites start to scramble for safety.


As you will learn from the comments under the video, DW is a controversial guy, who has made some good and bad predictions.

But he is always interesting to hear. And many of his ideas get picked up elsewhere.

. . .

Published October 26th 2004 by Berkley Trade

(first published 1999)
Dirk Pitt discovers Atlantis, in a breathtaking novel from the grand master of adventure fiction.

Clive Cussler has long since proven himself one of America's most popular authors--a master of intricate, audacious plotting and "vibrant, rollicking narrative" (Chicago Tribune). But Atlantis Found may be his most audacious novel of all.

September l858: An Antarctic whaler stumbles upon an aged wreck, its grisly frozen crew guarding crates of odd antiquities--and a skull carved from black obsidian.

March 200l: A team of anthropologists gazes in awe at a wall of strange inscriptions, moments before a blast seals them deep within the Colorado rock.

April 200l: A research ship manned by Dirk Pitt and members of the U.S. National Underwater and Marine Agency is set upon and nearly sunk by an impossibility--a vessel that should have died fifty-six years before.

Pitt knows that somehow all these incidents are connected, and his investigations soon land him deep into an ancient mystery with very modern consequences, up against a diabolical enemy unlike any he has ever known, and racing to save not only his own life but the future of the world itself.

The trap is set. The clock is ticking. And only one man stands between earth and Armageddon. . . .

Filled with dazzling suspense and astonishing set pieces, this is Clive Cussler's greatest adventure novel yet.

"I've always had tremendous fun with Dirk Pitt, but nothing has given me more pleasure than the opportunity to send him to that most fabled of lost lands, Atlantis, and to virtually reinvent aspects of its civilization. I hope you have as good a time reading Atlantis Found as I did writing it!"--Clive Cussler
In the 1999 Novel,
Atlantis is found under the ice of Antarctica.
The novel imagines that It shifted down there after an asteroid collided with Earth 7,000 years ago.
This is essential the same story that Wilcock tells
