In my recent book, Hidden in Plain Sight: Beyond the X-Files, I reproduce in full and discuss a couple of Project Paperclip memoranda (circa 1947) that I discovered in the historical archives of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, in Washington, DC. Of course, the Top Secret Project Paperclip operation brought large numbers of “ex”-NAZI scientists, engineers and technicians to the USA in the years after WW II, where they were salted into a wide variety of military, civil government and espionage agencies, corporations and other organizations.
The Project Paperclip memos caught my attention for a number of reasons. First of all, because they were requesting such prominent names as W.O. Schumann, Walter Dornberger and Eugen Saenger to be made available for Project Paperclip, the first being the preeminent authority in the world on extremely high powered electrical fields, and the last two perhaps the two biggest names in rocket science in the world at that time. The memos also explicitly asked for Xaver Dorsch and three other men to help with the U.S. Military’s Underground Plant Program. Xaver Dorsch was head of the Todt Organization during the last years of WW II and was in charge of Hitler’s frantic program of major underground base construction during the closing stages of WW II.
This greatly interested me because my earlier research had documented that in 1987, Lloyd A. Duscha, the then-Deputy Director of Engineering and Construction for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, gave a talk at an engineering conference entitled “Underground Facilities for Defense – Experience and Lessons.” In the first part of his talk he stated that:
“After World War II, political and economic factors changed the underground construction picture and caused a renewed interest to ‘think underground.’ As a result of this interest, the Corps of Engineers became involved in the design and construction of some very complex and interesting military projects.”
Of course, a big part of the “renewed interest to ‘think underground’” was due to the discovery in 1945 of the elaborate underground facilities the NAZIs had constructed during WW II. No doubt, one of the “political … factors (that) changed the underground construction picture” was also Project Paperclip, though it went unmentioned by name by Lloyd Duscha in 1987. A little further on he said:
“Although the conference program indicates the topic to be ‘Underground Facilities for Defense – Experience and Lessons,’ I must deviate a little because several of the most interesting facilities that have been designed and constructed by the Corps are classified.”
Subsequently Mr. Duscha went into a discussion of the Corps’ involvement in the 1960s in the construction of the large and elaborate NORAD base buried deep beneath Cheyenne Mountain, in Colorado. And then he said:
“As stated earlier, there are other projects of similar scope, which I cannot identify…”
I would add, parenthetically that I believe these multiple “interesting facilities” that are “classified”, which he “cannot identify” are likely to be either a) undersea, b) involve sensitive projects involving UFO technology and/or joint alien/human operating bases, and/or c) be located on the Moon and/or Mars and/or other planets and planetoids elsewhere.
Returning the discussion to Project Paperclip again, the request for the NAZI personnel in the Project Paperclip memos that I reference was made under the authority of the American military’s USAFE-A2 Command, which is a military alpha-numeric designation still in use in the present day, having to do with the U.S. Air Force’s European compartmentalized and sensitive intelligence operations.
Please see: http://www.af.mil/shared/media/epubs/AFI14-105_USAFESUP1.pdf
By logical inference, the USAFE-A2 Command is the arena of many Top Secret and classified operations and programs, and has been for more than half a century. Among its many responsibilities are: International Transfers of Technology, Goods, Services and Munitions, Disclosure of Classified Military Information to Foreign Governments and International Organizations, Visits and Assignments of Foreign Nationals, and Disclosure of Military Information to Foreign Governments and International Organizations.
Interestingly, the USAFE-A2Command includes OSS (Operations Support Squadron) units. The espionage acronym OSS is reminiscent of the WW-II era OSS espionage agency of the USA, the Office of Strategic Services. Does a remnant of the WW-II era OSS live on within the bowels of the USAFE-A2 Command, shielded within its secretive structure from public scrutiny? Who knows?
Of course, foreign can mean a number of things, including: nonnative, alien, originating outside of, or having to do with a place outside of or beyond the territory of a given district or country. Germans are, therefore, foreign to the USA. Martians or beings from the Pleiades are also foreign to the USA. And so forth.
One of the two Project Paperclip memoranda is signed by H.M. McCoy, Colonel, Air Corps, Deputy Commanding General, Intelligence (T-2), while the other is signed by Geo. F. Schulgen, Brigadier General, U.S.A., Chief, Air Intelligence Requirements Div., Office of Ass’t Chief of Air Staff-2.
This is intriguing because Colonel H.M. McCoy is a well known figure in post-WW II U.S. military UFO investigations. In the immediate post-WW II period he worked out of Wright Patterson AFB in Ohio, where he interfaced with both the Project Paperclip operation, and directed the U.S. Air Force’s major UFO investigation Project SIGN, which subsequently morphed into Project Grudge in 1949, with McCoy remaining as director.
Brigadier General Schulgen also worked out of Wright Patterson, and had involvement with both Project Paperclip and the U.S. Air Force’s UFO investigations. Schulgen both received and wrote high level Top Secret memos on the UFO issue in 1947.
Remember that the recovered UFO wreckage from the so-called Roswell crash in New Mexico in 1947 has been reported by many to have been transported to Wright Patterson AFB.
Enter the NAZI Bell and Its Tangled History
I mention all of this because I recently read Joseph Farrell’s fascinating book, The SS Brotherhood of the Bell, in which he avers that the NAZIs made almost science fiction-like technological breakthroughs during WW II, having to do with exotic, high-energy mercury plasmas, and the engineering of the vacuum or aether, call it what you will, with implications for UFO-like antigravity technology, new generations of scalar weaponry, time travel and more, based on a nonlinear conception of physics, a vorticular physics of the internal rotational stress of space itself. Farrell makes an intriguing case that R&D work on this technology centered on construction of a device known as The Bell (die Glocke). This project has also been earlier discussed in the books, The Hunt For Zero Point, by British aerospace writer, Nick Cook, and The Truth About The Wunderwaffe, by Polish military journalist, Igor Witkowski. The evidence indicates that the Bell R&D project was under the command of a Top Secret SS cell called FEP. This FEP-SS Cell, oddly enough, was under the direction of a Kriegsmarine Admiral Rhein (I will come back to this unexplained naval connection later), which clearly intimates some degree of involvement of the German war-time Navy in the Bell project. However, the actual work on the “Bell” project itself was apparently directed by an SS General Emil Mazuw, about whom very little is known, albeit that he was one of the highest ranking NAZI officers in the Third Reich.
Another important figure, SS General Hans Kammler, also is reported to have had a high-level connection to the Bell project. Kammler was no ordinary SS officer. He was in charge of concentration camp design and construction during the war. He was also tasked with the construction of production facilities for secret weapons programs, and with moving V-2 and V-1 missile production underground to the Mittelwerk facility in the southern Harz mountains near Nordhausen in the last year of the war. During the war Kammler was in charge of special construction projects for Albert Speer, special buildings for Hermann Goering, and for most of the last year of the war was in charge of the V-2 project, taking it over from SS General Walter Dornberger. This is the same V-2 program for which Wernher von Braun was the principle rocket scientist and engineer. At war’s end SS General Hans Kammler seems to have vanished into thin air, along with the Bell itself. There is speculation that the both of them were perhaps secretly flown away to the USA and/or South America, or even another, unknown destination.
Part of Farrell’s thesis is that near the end of WW II and in the following years, a powerful NAZI faction established an extremely secretive, extremely well funded, international organizational network to continue the exotic, high-tech R&D centered on the scalar, anti-gravity and time engineering breakthroughs they had made during WW II. The work is hypothesized to have continued after WW II, in part with the connivance of Operation Paperclip in the USA, but also elsewhere in various other countries of the world, including Russia, Egypt and Argentina, and presumably others, operating from within the military-industrial-espionage complex of the USA and other countries. Within the USA, this sprawling network had a number of nodal points, notably in Virginia, Texas, New Mexico, Florida and Alabama.
The Project Paperclip Memos
I definitely consider that the two Project Paperclip memoranda that I discovered in the NASA historical archives in Washington, DC are completely consonant with Farrell’s thesis. I don’t have the slightest doubt that Project paperclip was part and parcel of the post-WW II continuation of the NAZI agenda under official USA government and military auspices.
Winfried Otto Schumann, best known today for discovering the Schumann magnetic resonances in the ionosphere, was one of the preeminent high voltage, high current electrophysical scientists and engineers in the world in the first half of the 20th century. W.O. Schumann’s name is on both of the Project Paperclip memos in question. Interestingly, W.O. Schumann was granted a U.S. Patent on 29 September 1942, at the height of WW II, Patent No. 2,297, 256 – – entitled “Tube Control.” The patent application was filed in April of 1939 in Germany. The title of the patent says that the patent is “Vested in the Alien Property Custodian.” (Hmm. One does wonder precisely what technology the “Alien Property Custodian” of the USA government has collected over the years.) To be sure, from the standpoint of Joseph Farrell’s research on the SS Nazi “Bell,” Schumann’s “Tube Control” patent pointedly has to do with vacuum-arc electrical discharges within a mercury plasma contained within a tube.
Joseph Farrell reports that mercury plasma and very high energy electrical fields are both said to be integral to the operation of the NAZI Bell. And Project Paperclip was “ordering” W.O. Schumann as of 16 June 1947, just three weeks before the famous Roswell UFO crash in New Mexico. What a coincidence, eh? I wonder if the recovered Roswell crash wreckage was also “Vested in the Alien Property Custodian,” like W.O. Schumann’s “vacuum-arc mercury plasma Tube Control” patent?
Walter Dornberger, Werrnher von Braun’s commanding officer at Peenemuende, and head of the V-2 missile program until Hans Kammler took it over in the last year of the war, is also listed in this memo. Dornberger was brought to the USA and went to work for Bell Helicopter, in New York State. That seems a strange destination for a ballistic missile expert. However, Bell Helicopter was for a period of time a leading company in the R&D effort for the U.S. Air Force’s planned manned space program, the Dyna-Soar boost-glide rocket plane, during the 1950s and early 1960s. Most people do not know, or do not remember, that in that period there were two, parallel manned space programs under development, one at NASA, the Mercury and Gemini programs, the other at the Air Force, the Dyna-Soar program. Even fewer people know that Neil Armstrong, purportedly the first man to walk on the Moon, was in astronaut training in the U.S. Air Force’s Dyna-Soar manned space program, before he left that program and became a NASA astronaut.
As regards Dornberger’s odd placement at Bell Helicopter, was he placed there to get him out of the public eye, away from von Braun and the other Paperclip personnel, perhaps in order to run a compartmentalized program safely removed from the publicity glare of the manned space program and the USA’s miliary agencies’ ballistic missile programs?
Jospeh Farrell mentions the central role played by the Allgemeine Electricitäts Gesellschaft (A.E.G.) in the R&D of the Bell.
Two specialists with an AEG affiliation are requested by the Paperclip memos:
Dr. Orthenhuber, with an expertise in homing systems, and also
Professor Bladenbeck, with an expertise in guided missiles and infrared homing.
Others requested are:
Dr. Wolfgang Braun, with expertise in radar tracking devices, and
Dr. W. Pfister, with expertise in navigation and theoretical electronics
Dr. Ing. Max Knoll, specialist in cathode ray tubes and electron optics
Dr. Kurt Franz, theorist in high frequency technique
Dr. W. Wessel, specialist in theoretical physics and electrostatics of ion fields
Hans Bomke, specialist in theoretical physics and high frequency techniques
Prof. O. Scherzer, specialist in electron optics
For a more detailed discussion of why scientists and engineers with these qualifications and areas of expertise were of such interest to Project Paperclip please refer to Joseph Farrell’s, The SS Brotherhood of the Bell. Suffice it to say that high energy ionized gases (plasmas), high frequency pulsing of electrical currents and fields, electrostatics, particle physics, radar theory and so forth, have direct application to so-called UFO technologies, and so-called scalar technologies. I’m talking about things like antigravity, electrogravitics, manipulation of the local foundation of the time-space continuum, and perhaps also time travel, or engineering of the time stream. It is clear to me at this point that there are important aspects of Project Paperclip that have still not been publicly divulged, even with the passage of several decades of time. Frankly, what we are looking at is a kind of Black Magic, an effort to technologically force the source-code of the Universe and subjugate the Creation to a duplicitous, technocratic, militaristic dominion.
Most of the “Bell” project took place in Lower Silesia. Notably, much of the most important work took place underground, beneath Fürstenstein castle. My research strongly suggests that the exotic technology R&D of the NAZIs continued in underground bases in the USA and probably also in other regions of the world. The Project Paperclip memos that I found in the NASA historical archives all but admit as much.
President Truman, the 33rd President of the United States of America (and a 33rd degree Scottish Rite Free Mason– you’ll be seeing more of the number “33″ and Scottish Rite Free Masonry in this article), established the CIA with the National Security Act of 1947, effectively wedding the Third Reich’s sprawling NAZI spy apparatus, the Gehlen Organization, with the remnants of the American OSS. The practical result was that the CIA, from its creation, was a hybrid NAZI- American agency and provided intimate “ex”-NAZI access to the very highest and most secretive levels of the American power structure – government, military, intelligence agencies, industry, the halls of academe, you name it.
To my knowledge, the CIA has at least three principle bases of operation in Virginia, one at its world famous, Langley headquarters in northern Virginia; another at its extremely secretive underground base at the U.S. Army’s Warrenton Training Stations in northern Virginia, about which almost nothing is known; and another at its Camp Peary training and operations base in southeastern Virginia, often popularly referred to as “The Farm.”.
Camp Peary is right across from Colonial Williamsburg along I-64, the interstate highway that runs from Richmond to Newport News. Camp Peary has an interesting history. During WW II it was initially a Seabee training base, and then was made into a POW base for “special” German prisoners of war that had to be held under very secretive conditions. Several years after the war, Camp Peary became a high security CIA base and remains so today. On maps, Camp Peary is identified as a U.S. Navy Reservation, but it is, in fact, a CIA base. As an aside, Camp David, the Presidential retreat adjacent to Catoctin State Park in the mountains of Maryland, is also a U.S. Navy Reservation, built by the Seabees and guarded by the U.S. Marine Corps. During WW II the area that is now Camp David was a training base for the OSS. Camp David today has a massive underground base that sprawls for miles beneath the mountains and countryside of rural Maryland. I have talked to people that have been down in the tunnels, and one of them told me that the Camp David subterranean maze is so vast and intricate that he doubts that any one individual has the complete layout of the place in his or her mind.
Interestingly, only a few miles away from Camp Peary in Tidewater Virginia, at nearby Fort Eustis, the U.S. Army’s Transportation Museum possesses A.V. Roe Aircraft Limited’s Avro Car, a prototype flying saucer that was under R&D during the 1950s by the Canadian and USA militaries. The official story is that it did not work well, and so the flying saucer project was scuttled due to the disappointing results. Personally, I believe this effort may have been a cover operation for far more secretive and successful R&D work on UFOs that has been kept out of the public eye for decades.
The Avro Car flying saucer was profiled in LOOK Magazine‘s 14 June 1955 issue, which asked: “Is This the Real Flying Saucer?” One of the things I found interesting about it, was that the article included an illustration of a large, underground, flying saucer base, buried beneath a mountainous terrain covered by a coniferous forest, in what looked to be a western region of the USA. I will come back to this a little later.
As I said the CIA is a hybrid organization from its inception, born in 1947 of the union of the NAZI Gehlen Organization spy agency and the USA’s OSS (Office of Strategic Services).
I have already mentioned the CIA’s well known Langley headquarters in northern Virginia, but there is another Langley in Virginia — Langley Air Force Base just to the north of Hampton, Virginia – only a short drive from Camp Peary. This matters to this account, because NASA astronauts trained at Langley AFB in the late 1950s and early 1960s, the very period when NAZI involvement at NASA was at its height. Can it be coincidence that scarcely 10 years after the creation of the CIA – a hybrid, half NAZI organization from the very start, and the establishment of the CIA’s main training base at Camp Peary, Virginia that NASA’s main astronaut training facility was just a short drive away? Just to the north of Langley AFB, on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, on the Delmarva Peninsula is another NASA facility on Wallop’s Island, the NASA Wallop’s Flight Facility, where many rockets and missiles have been launched over a period of decades. So both northern Virginia and southeastern Virginia have been hubs of espionage and high-tech R&D for post-WW II “ex”-NAZI elements, principally via NASA and the CIA.
Finally, just across the interstate highway from the CIA’s main training base at Camp Peary, is Colonial Williamsburg, the 18th century town restored to its British colonial vintage condition with Rockefeller family money. Perambulating the area you would think yourself transported back almost two and a half centuries to an earlier era. As you look around you see men and women in colonial dress, you might see and hear a British or Continental Army fife and drum corps in period dress parading down the street, or horse drawn carriages, 18th century muskets and cannon, a windmill, or colonial government and royal administrative buildings. You would almost think yourself caught in a sort of time warp, or maybe a sort of time machine.
Are you? Is this what a functioning time machine looks like? Yes? No?
Would you know a time machine if you were looking at it? Yes? No?
Is Colonial Williamsburg perhaps an elaborate set-up or charade to permit discreet passage to and from the 18th century on the East Coast of North America? How deep does the rabbit hole go?
Of course New Mexico is famous for the so-called Roswell UFO crash and recovery in 1947. (The fact that there was likely more than one UFO crash and retrieval in New Mexico in mid-summer 1947, and that none of the UFO crashes and recoveries actually happened in Roswell itself is not my concern here.)
What does interest me is that in the summer of 1947 there was a large contingent of NAZI scientists and engineers working at the nearby White Sands Army Missile Range in south-central New Mexico. I doubt very much that that was a coincidence. I do suspect some sort of NAZI connection to or involvement with the events surrounding the so-called “Roswell Crash” in 1947, whether before, during or after the fact, and even, who knows? – potentially in all three phases.
Also nearby, is the so-called underground Manzano Base, just southeast of Albuquerque, New Mexico. Construction of this underground base began – you should be able to guess by now – in June 1947, the same year the CIA was established, the same year of the Project Paperclip memos which are the focus of this blog post, and the same year of the so-called “Roswell UFO crash” and retrieval. I doubt that it is a coincidence that all of these things happened in the same year.
Recall that the Project Paperclip memos that I cite (and reproduce in full in my book, Hidden in Plain Sight) specifically call for Xaver Dorsch and three other NAZI technicians to assist with the USAF’s “Underground Plant Program.” The Manzano Base was one of the USA military’s first, major deep underground bases. Begun shortly adter WW II. The other was at what is now Fort Hood, near Killeen, Texas (more about that a little later). The fact that this base was begun at precisely the same time (1947) that Project Paperclip requested Xaver Dorsch (1947) is surely no accident. He was perhaps the premier expert in the world at that time on major, underground base construction, having been explicitly tasked with that duty by Adolph Hitler in the closing months of WW II. I suspect he may very well have also been secretly brought to New Mexico under Project Paperclip to assist with the Manzano Base construction. Remember that we have the 1947 memorandum asking for him, he was in American military detention after the war, the Manzano Base was begun in mid-1947, and scores of other Paperclip NAZis were working in New Mexico at that time. The circumstantial evidence therefore points in that direction.
I have discussed the Manzano Base in my books and you can find information about it in them. There is also more information at this link.
Note that in addition to being an underground nuclear weapons storage and assembly factory, the base was also a Presidential underground shelter during the Eisenhower administration. I have reason to believe there is a great deal more to this facility than that, however. One of my high-level sources has told me that the Manzano Base is truly vast. This is from a source not given to hyperbole or exaggeration.
I was also contacted by a woman some years back who told me that her father made a death bed confession to his family that he had helped build an underground city in New Mexico when she was a child. He had frequently gone away from the family on work related business for prolonged periods of time in the post-WW II period, and never explained to the family the reason for his his long absences. But as he lay dying he opened up and the story poured out. He described an elaborate, almost sci-fi sort of underground city with advanced features that most buildings don’t have even today, such as light switches embedded in the walls that you merely waved your hand at to turn on or off.
I have spoken to others who have been inside this facility, including one man who helped with the construction in the 1940s and 1950s. He was a life-long hard rock miner for the USA government. He told me that when he and his crew went into the mountain to begin their shifts they were always blindfolded. When they were shifted underground from one part of the mountain to another, they were always blindfolded. In other words, not even the men who excavated the tunnels and chambers of the Manzano Base knew the lay-out of the underground base they had built.
One of the stories I heard more than once is that the Manzano Base also includes an subterranean air base for jet fighters that can be scrambled from an underground runway and launched right from the side of the mountain through a camouflaged opening. While I cannot say if this is true or not, what is true is that there has been documented UFO activity in and around the Manzano Base in past years.
I definitely think that the Manzano Base must be considered a prime candidate to be the underground UFO base depicted in the 1955 LOOK Magazine UFO article, because it is located in western, mountainous terrain, covered by a coniferous forest that closely resembles the illustration that accompanies the LOOK article.
There are also underground facilities beneath White Sands Missile Range, where the Operation Paperclip NAZIs worked. My research indicates this includes at a minimum underground laser R&D facilities, and extensive, deep underground tunnels.
I lived in New Mexico for several years and I encountered many people during my time there who have seen a wide variety of UFOs and flying saucers. I also had some very clear UFO sightings of my own while living in New Mexico. It is very easy for me to believe that some, a lot, or maybe just about all of the UFO activity in New Mexcio is related to the underground bases and tunnels that lie beneath that state.
I want to say something more about the NAZI presence in New Mexico before I go on. It is well established that Wernher von Braun and his team of 118 scientists, engineers and technicians worked at White Sands Missile Range in the post-WW II period. They were put to work assembling and test firing V-2 rockets that had been brought over from Germany at war’s end. The interesting thing is that there was one and only one V-2 launch complex at White Sands, launch pad No. 33. Of course, this is an echo of the heavy importance of the number 33 in the esoteric lore of Free Masonry. This, again, is not a coincidence. There was deep Masonic involvement with the early days of NASA, and its predecessor agency, NACA. Much of this connection ran through the House of the Temple, the 33rd degree Scottish Rite Masonic Temple on 16th Street, in Washington, DC, about a mile north of the White House. The Project Paperclip NAZIs like Wernher von Braun and Kurt Debus fired V-2s at Launch Complex No. 33 at White Sands after WW II, and later in the 1950s and 1960s they worked at the highest levels of a space program with strong 33rd degree Scottish Rite Masonic ties. I don’t think this is a coincidence.
In case you are of the opinion that the New Mexico connection to UFOs is ancient history, perhaps you would like to reconsider your ill-advised bias and read the following: Haunted Roswell: Huge, Cloaking Aerial Disc Encounter by NM State Prison Corrections Officer
The Texas connection to this whole, mysterious, decades-long affair is strong and convoluted. First of all, the NAZI Paperclip scientists, engineers and technicians who were first brought to the USA in 1945 with Wernher von Braun were brought to Fort Bliss, in west Texas, north of El Paso, where they were housed as they worked at White Sands Missile Range in south-central New Mexico, where they continued working with V-2 rocket technology for the American military, in the late 1940s.
Other NAZIs also came to Texas. Hubertus Strughold, the so-called father of space medicine, went to Randolph Air Force Base, near San Antonio. Dr Walter Paul Emil Schreiber was also brought to Randolph Air Force Base, but then was soon sent by the USA military to Argentina, when his presence in Texas became publicly known. (I mention a little more about Argentina below. Argentina was also a focus of NAZI activity in the post-WW II era.)
The NAZI connection to Texas is interesting for a number of reasons, not least of which is the decades-long tie of the Bush family political dynasty to Texas, in both the political and corporate realms. The business and banking ties of Prescott Bush (father and grandfather, respectively, of George Herbert Walker Bush and George W. Bush) to the NAZI regime, both before and during WW II, are a matter of record.
As it happens, there has been a sizable, ethnic German population concentrated in the Texas Hill Country for almost two centuries, beginning with a wave of German immigration in the 1840s. I do not at all mean to say that as a group that ethnic, Texas Germans are NAZIs – quite to the contrary!
I raise the point, because I cannot fail to mention Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz, a native German speaker, who was born in 1885 in Fredericksburg, Texas, the county seat of Gillespie County, Texas. Fredericksburg is in the very heart of the then heavily German-speaking Texas Hill Country. Of course, Nimitz was Commander of American forces in the Pacific Theater during WW II. Interestingly, he went to privately visit German Admiral Dönitz, the commander of the Kriegsmarine during WW II, after Dönitz’s release from prison in 1956. (More about Dönitz below.) Did Nimitz just extend pleasantries and condolences to his imprisoned NAZI counterpart, or did they have weightier matters to discuss? Perhaps even pertaining to the subject of this article? Remember that Nimitz was a native German speaker and by virtue of his rank and position would have been privy to the very highest levels of war-time intelligence. He was uniquely qualified to debrief Dönitz, in a way that virtually no one else on the American side would have been. It also must be mentioned that Nimitz was appointed the Chief of Naval Operations after WW II, and it was in this capacity that less than a year after the conclusion of hostilities in WW II he issued the orders for the well-known Antarctic Operation High Jump. Operation High Jump has been the subject of much speculation in both UFOlogy and NAZI conspiracy circles concerning the possible presence of a remnant, post-WW II, high-tech NAZI redoubt in the Antarctic region, perhaps incorporating a flying saucer base. I personally do not know if this is the case or not. Who really knows? A great deal of what happened just before, during, and just after the conclusion of military hostilities in WW II remains very murky, to this day.
With respect to Admiral Dönitz, remember that he commanded the German Kriegsmarine during the last two years of WW II, and that in the closing days of the war, Adolph Hitler appointed Dönitz to be Reichspräsident. Admiral Dönitz was, thus, de facto and de jure head of state of the Third Reich for the last week of its existence, in the first week of May 1945. Recall that, according to Joseph Farrell, the Bell program was conducted at a very secretive level by powerful elements of the SS, but was in reality also a securely compartmentalized Navy (Kriegsmarine) program. Farrell also points out the importance that mercury seems to have played in the Bell technology. As it happens, in the closing stages of the war, no less than three German U-Boats were dispatched to Japan bearing cargoes of mercury: U-864 with more than 60 tons of mercury in steel flasks, as well as jet engines, parts and technical drawings, U-234 with 562 kg of uranium oxide (interestingly, U-234 is also the notation for one of the isotopes of uranium), also mercury and optical glass in its keel, and U-859 with 31 tons of mercury. All of these German submarines were either surrendered or sunk in the last months and days of the war, so their cargoes are known.
Were other German submarines loaded with mercury or other exotic cargoes also underway at or near war’s end, but perhaps completed their missions without being captured or sunk, and thus both their cargoes and destinations remain unknown? In that regard, it is noteworthy that German Submarines U-530 and U-977 both surrendered in Mar del Plata, Argentina, months after the formal cessation of military hostilities with the Third Reich. Did either of these submarines deliver a special cargo or special passengers to Argentina or another destination in the region, or is it simply that their commanding officers wished to surrender in Argentina. Who knows? But this is not the first or only time that Argentina has come to public mention as a destination for NAZIs fleeing Europe after WW II.
Given his close Texas Hill Country connections, and the continuing post-WW II immigration of Germans to the Texas Hill Country, including unknown numbers of SS officers, who knows what Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz may have known or been told? Who knows whom else he might have known, whether in an unofficial or official capacity? People like Nimitz and Dönitz were not ordinary men; the positions they held were not ordinary posts; the things they did were not the sorts of things that ordinary people do; and a lot of distinctly non-ordinary events occurred during, and just after WW II. Both Nimitz and Dönitz would both have been privy to an awful lot of Top Secret information during the war and at war’s end. So what did Dönitz and Nimtz talk about? Did Nimitz fly all the way to Germany just to say, “Es tut mir leid”? (“I’m sorry.”) I am inclined to think that their conversation probably involved more than a handshake and the exchange of social pleasantries.
Joseph Farrell also spends a lot of time on the assassination of President John Kennedy, which conspicuously occurred in Texas, and the probable involvement of a shadowy NAZI faction in the background machinations behind the hit, ultimately with the objective of keeping secret the revolutionary new technologies that they had discovered and developed, and which they feared Kennedy’s policies of increased openness in the American space program would expose. To be sure, when you ask, at a pragmatic political level, cui bono? with respect to the JFK murder, the obvious answer, first and foremost, is that Lyndon Baines Johnson benefited by succeeding to the Presidency of the USA before the day was done.
Coincidentally, Lyndon Johnson also happens to be a native son of Gillespie County, having lived in Stonewall, Texas about 10 miles east of Fredericksburg, Texas, where Chester Nimitz was born and grew up. Johnson was a U.S. Congressman during WW II representing a Texas Hill Country district. He was also a Naval Reserve officer who played a high profile role upgrading the U.S. war effort in the Southwest Pacific Theater, serving as a prominent liaison between President Roosevelt, Undersecretary of the Navy James Forrestal, General Douglas MacArthur, the U.S. Senate and others. Obviously, Lyndon Baines Johnson and Chester Nimitz certainly knew each other personally, and certainly would have interacted face to face on multiple occasions, both having been born and grown up in the same, rural Texas county, both having been prominently involved at the highest levels in U.S. Navy operations in the WW II Pacific Theater, and both having played a prominent role in the public life of the nation.
Because of his lifelong Texas Hill Country ties, Lyndon Johnson is also likely to have known of, and quite possibly to have directly known ex-NAZI SS officers resident in his Congressional district. I worked and lived in that region of Texas for more than ten years. I got to know some of the Texas German old timers, and the inside scuttlebutt that I heard was that the last, known SS officer in the Texas Hill Country died in, or about, the year 1999. So if there really was NAZI SS involvement behind the scenes in the JFK hit, and if there really were “ex”-NAZI SS officers quietly living in the Texas Hill Country in the decades after WW II (as I have been told there were), then whom did Lyndon Johnson know, and when did he know them and what, if anything, did they talk about?
Remember that when Johnson became President he moved NASA’s mission control center from Cape Canaveral, Florida to Houston, Texas. Remember also, that in those days there was very heavy ex-NAZI leadership of NASA, at the very highest levels. Wernher von Braun, Kurt Debus (whom Farrell reveals to have had personal involvement in the SS Bell project), Arthur Rudolph and others were in charge.
I mention this in part, because one of the stories that has come my way over the years, as I have pursued my secret underground and underwater bases research, is that there is purportedly an actual NAZI undersea base in the Gulf of Mexico, replete with large Swastika banners on the walls, just offshore from the Houston- Galveston area. I received this story second-hand, and while I cannot prove that it is true, I am willing to consider that it may be, especially in light of the documented NAZI ties to Texas that my research has uncovered. Moreover my research has indicated that the Gulf of Mexico is one of the bodies of water in the world where secret undersea facilities do exist.
An added consideration is the strong historical ties of the Bush family to both the NAZI Party and the Third Reich, and also to the Houston area, and to the powerful petroleum industry in Texas. The offshore petroleum industry in the Houston area certainly has the money, technology and trained personnel to construct undersea facilities. I believe that that has happened. As for the Bush family’s NAZI ties, recall that Prescott Bush, father of George Herbert Walker Bush and grandfather of George W. Bush, both of whom became President of the USA, was a Wall Street banker before and during WW II with NAZI business ties Please see: How Bush’s grandfather helped Hitler’s rise to power for his involvement in helping to facilitate the industrial foundation of the Third Reich’s war effort, and the profitability of his efforts for the Bush family’s subsequent financial fortune.
Note that Prescott Bush, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush were all three inducted into the super-secretive Skull and Bones Society at Yale University, which originated in the 1800s as a branch of a never-publicly-named German secret society. I duly note that the skull and bones insignia was prominently used by the NAZI SS during the Third Reich, and also by certain units in the Wehrmacht and Luftwaffe.
Before leaving Texas I have to add that there was another major underground base built in the post-WW II period, in this case at Fort Hood, near Killeen, Texas, at the same time that the Manzano Base in New Mexico was being built. I have been told that the underground base is near the Robert Gray Army Airfield, which is on the Fort Hood military reservation. I communicated with a man who was stationed there during the Vietnam War. He informed me that his underground duty station was located at a point two miles inside an access tunnel. I asked him what happened inside the underground base and he said that what happened there could be interpreted as having to do with a type of “Gray” operation. Given the context of our communication I understood that he meant that the USA military was carrying out a project at the Killeen underground base having to do with the so-called “Little Grey” aliens in some wise, or with their technology.
I earlier mentioned Ohio, in connection to Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, which played a huge role in the Pentagon’s UFO related research and programs, not only with regard to the Roswell affair, but in other respects, as well, some of which I have mentioned elsewhere in this discussion. Indeed, I have talked with one of the physicists (not a publicly known man) involved with the U.S. Air Force’s Project Blue Book program who flatly told me that when he worked at Wright-Patterson that the US Air Force was secretly flying two UFOs of their own manufacture right out of Wright-Patterson AFB. He said that they would open the hangar doors in the dead of night and fly them right out of the hangars at full bore. According to him, one was a large circular vehicle and the other somewhat resembled a 1950s-era automobile.
I accept that the USA military has had UFO technology for decades. The Pentagon is just lying about that, like it lies about so many other things.
One of the reasons I accept that is because Ohio is also the home state of T. Townsend Brown, a 20th century, genius-level scientist, engineer and inventor who discovered and carried out extensive R&D work on electrogravitic and antigravitic technologies, with direct application to UFO technology. He worked for a variety of military and aerospace agencies and organizations, on research in this vein. At one time he worked for Dr. Vannevar Bush, whom many have linked to the Top Secret MJ-12 UFO organization. His early work demonstrated that an x-ray vacuum tube containing ionized particles would exert a force when connected to a high voltage source. The force was not attributable to the x-rays that were generated. This is strongly reminiscent of what the NAZI SS was said to have done with their “Bell” technology, which involved a sealed cylinder containing ionized mercury that was subjected to very high voltages. This force came to be called the Biefeld-Brown effect. I am sure that the NAZI scientists and engineers would have been aware of T. Townsend Brown’s earlier work in the 1920s. During the 1950s Brown concentrated on electrogravitic and antigravity research. In the mid-1950s he was working in France for Projet Montgolfier which unabashedly had to do with levitating circular, flying-saucer shaped metallic objects. See some representative photos here. Brown reportedly made significant breakthroughs during his period of flying saucer propulsion research in France.
I accept that this is true without reservation or qualification whatsoever. During my own extensive literature search through the post-WW II military and engineering technical documentation I noticed that during the 1950s there was a flurry of research associated with electrogravitics and antigravity and then by 1960 or so, the references in the technical literature dwindled away. I believe this is because important breakthrough were made in antigravity and electrogravitics and the R&D effort was taken Top Secret into the hermetically compartmentalized world of black budget operations. I have no doubt that T. Townsend Brown was part of this secret R&D program, that must have included the NAZIs, too.
Interestingly, it is the case that Zanesville, Ohio, the hometown of T. Townsend Brown, also popped up in my research as the proposed site for a deep underground military excavation back in the early 1960s. Given Ohio’s close connection to the UFO phenomenon through Wright-Patterson AFB, and through the life work of T. Townsend Brown, it would not surprise me in the slightest if an underground base was constructed far below Zanesville, Ohio that is somehow related to or connected to UFOs or UFO research.
Jospeh Farrell also mentions the peculiar UFO abduction case of Barney and Betty Hill, because it explicitly raises the issue of NAZI involvement with secret UFO activity in the post-WW II period. The book, The Interrupted Journey, by John Fuller, describes in detail the September 1961 abduction of Barney and Betty Hill by beings in a glowing, cigar-shaped craft in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. In my first book, Underground Bases and Tunnels: What is the Government Trying to Hide?, the White Mountains of New Hampshire were one of the locations which my research had revealed the USA military looked at in the early 1960s, and regarded as favorable for deep underground construction. I believe that deep underground facilities have, indeed, been built in New England, including in the White Mountains.
I point this out, because under hypnotic regression Barney Hill describes the commander of the group that abducted him and took him aboard the UFO as being a NAZI, specifically a NAZI in a black uniform. This is interesting because the Waffen SS officers did wear black uniforms. It is indisputable fact that Project Paperclip did bring large numbers of NAZIs to the USA, including a lot of SS officers, so I am open to the possibility that the commander of the group that reportedly abducted Barney Hill may really have been a NAZI officer. As I recall, Barney also reported that one of the other abductors was an Irish man, but could he have been slightly mistaken? Maybe the other man was not actually Irish, but Scottish? Perhaps a Scottish Rite Free Mason? The curious thing is that by this point I really do not think I am joking, because at that precise historical juncture in the USA there were influential NAZIs and 33rd degree Scottish Rite Freemasons working closely together at a very high level on the American manned space program. One of Joseph Farrell’s premises is that this close cooperation between high-level NAZI operatives and Free Masons may have extended into the hermetically compartmentalized world of Black Operations, specifically as regards UFOs and unconventional UFO-like technologies. I am in close accord with Joseph Farrell on that point. I would go further and hypothesize that this cooperation could also extend to working with one or more off-planet species or groups, conceivably non-human beings, or even human beings from other planets. And, yes, I have heard, seen, read and been told enough that I now accept that there are multiple planets, conceivably myriad planets in this galaxy, with resident human populations that very strongly resemble Earth humans.
The truth is that not all prominent UFOlogists are good researchers, so for whatever reason, certain aspects of Barney Hill’s story have not been given the serious treatment and investigation that they deserve. I believe this has been a grave oversight. To his credit, Joseph Farrell is one of the few researchers and writers to have recognized the importance of the NAZI aspect of Barney Hill’s experience.
Not to forget Alabama, in particular the U.S. Army’s Redstone Arsenal at Huntsville. After leaving Fort Bliss, Texas and the U.S. Army’s White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, Wernher von Braun and his team were sent to the Redstone Arsenal to continue working.
Early on in my research back in the early 1990s I had run across 1950s-era plans by the U.S. Army to build a large underground rocket base beneath Green Mountain, near Huntsville, Alabama. At the time I was puzzled by that, but now more pieces are falling into place. Wernher von Braun and his team were at Redstone Arsenal in that period. This was also the period where the USA military was really ramping up its post-WW II program of major, underground base construction, and the U.S. Army no doubt wanted Wernher von Braun and his team to have the same facility to work with that they had in Germany, during the Third Reich. Recall that the last year of the war, V-1 and V-2 rocket production had been moved underground into the Mittelwerk production facility in the southern Harz Mountains. The Pentagon was simply mimicking the Third Reich’s playbook. Hitler had had an underground rocket factory, and the American generals wanted the same thing. I don’t know if Xaver Dorsch was still being debriefed by, or consulting with or for the U.S. Army at that time, but the Pentagon would certainly have gotten detailed information from him about the NAZIs’ extensive underground military and industrial production facilities.
There were also military plans to build an underground base beneath Kennesaw Mountain, in northern Georgia. Given the documented U.S. military interest in building underground bases in the southern Appalachian region, I assume that that has been done. If there are bases beneath Green and Kennesaw Mountains, they are clandestine.
Egyptian Project Paperclip
Many people are not aware that there was also an Egyptian analog to the American Project Paperclip. Hundreds of ex-NAZI scientists, engineers and technicians worked for years in Heliopolis, not far from Cairo. For a time Eugen Sänger was in charge of the research in Egypt. Recall that the services of Eugen Sänger were also explicitly requested by Operation Paperclip in 1947. Sänger was the father of the technology that ultimately led to the NASA space shuttle program. Walter Dornberger brought technical plans and schematics for this prototype technology with him when he came to the USA under Project Paperclip. I discuss this in my book, Kundalini Tales. Otto Skorzeny, the high-level SS operative who was seemingly everywhere, doing everything during WW II, was at least as active after the war, in organizing the international activities of “ex”-NAZI officers after the war. Skorzeny also was involved with the Egyptian “Paperclip” project, albeit in an unexpected way. Amazingly Skorzeny, the high-level “ex”-NAZI SS officer, was actually hired by the Mossad (Israeli Intelligence) in 1963 to finger ex-NAZIs working in Egypt. You can’t make this stuff up!
But the Egyptian connection is interesting. As a House of the Temple docent patiently explained to me one sweltering summer day in 1997, Scottish Rite Freemasonry traces its roots back to the masons who created the ancient monolithic architecture in Egypt. This is a salient point, because 33rd degree Scottish Rite Freemasonry had a close connection to the NASA space program (and its NACA forerunner) in the 1950s and 1960s. The House of the Temple, the headquarters for the Southern Jurisdiction of Scottish Rite Freemasonry in the USA, just north of the White House on 16th Street, in Washington, DC, had an especially close tie to the early NASA manned space program. In other words, in the formative years of NASA, high level Free Masons and high level NAZIs worked very closely together, and the connection ran through one of the most powerful Masonic lodges in the world, that considers that its historical antecedents trace back to ancient Egypt. At the same period, other NAZIs were at work in Egypt, on another technological R&D program. Coincidence? I suspect not.
Consider that the numbers 33, 33 and 1/3 and 333 are much beloved by high-level Free Masons. I don’t know why, but they are. They positively revere these numbers.
I mention this, because the Egyptian Project Paperclip was based at “Sakr” Factory 333 in Heliopolis, just outside of Cairo. The meaning of the Arabic word, sakr, is “falcon” or “eagle.” One is reminded of the Apollo 11 lunar module, “The Eagle,” and Neil Armstrong’s famous words upon setting down on the Moon’s surface: “The Eagle has landed.” One is equally reminded of the NAZI eagle prominently perched over the Swastika on NAZI banners, medals, insignias, statues, and so forth. The modern Egyptian national flag also prominently displays an eagle. Coincidences? Perhaps not.
For more on the large NAZI presence in Egypt after WW II please see:
Postwar Arab links to the ODESSA network
To my knowledge, the NAZis are not still there at Sakr Factory 333 in Heliopolis today. (Though who knows?) Today, there is a Sakr Factory For Development Industries in Heliopolis, still producing missiles and other ordnance for the Egyptian military, and its mailing address is, you guessed it: P.O. Box 33.
The 33rd degree Masonic connection also arises at one point in Farrell’s discussion, as he cites a memo that appears to allude to 33rd degree Masonic funding for highly Top Secret, MJ-12 related UFO research as it relates to a sprawling, international post-WW II exotic technology R&D program.
At one time there was a fair amount of information about the “Egyptian” Operation Paperclip at Heliopolis available online, but some of that appears to have vanished from the Internet in the past few years, or at any rate to be harder to track down than formerly was the case.
Before leaving Egypt I cannot fail to mention Dr. Farouk El-Baz. El-Baz is a native Egyptian, with a genius-level IQ. His PhD is in geology, but he has PhD level expertise in a variety of fields including remote sensing and photography, and more. He is a brilliant polymath with a formidable intellect. Let me explain his connection to all of this.
First let’s look at a brief chronology of his career.
1958 BS in geology and chemistry from Ain Shams University in Cairo
1958-1960 taught geology at Assiut University in Egypt
1961 MS in geology from Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy
1962-1963 research at MIT in Boston
1964 PhD in geology from Missouri School of Mines and Metallurgy
1964-1965 taught geology at University of Heidelberg, Germany
1966 worked as petroleum geologist for Pan American-UAR company in Gulf of Suez, Egypt
1967 was put in charge of the surface lunar component of NASA’s Apollo space program
Got that? He was just 29 years old, a newly minted PhD in geology, who had briefly been an adjunct professor, like a lot of young academics, and had spent a year working as a petroleum geologist.
From there he went directly to the very top of the NASA power structure, working at the highest and most sensitive level of the most important American scientific and engineering undertaking since the Manhattan Project. A 29 year-old Egyptian geologist, leapfrogged over myriad senior American engineers and scientists to be a) Supervisor of Lunar Science Planning, b) Secretary of the Landing Site Selection Committee, c) Principal Investigator of Visual Observations and Photography and d) Chairman of the Astronaut Training Group.
Remember that this was at the height of the Cold War. And a 29 year-old Egyptian was brought in to run the lunar manned space program. He was in charge of everything that happened on the Moon – landing site selection, lunar photography, astronaut training, lunar science planning.
I have spoken with one of the other men on the Apollo landing site selection committee and he remarked to me with disgust that the landing site selections were not made on the basis of scientific criteria, but were governed by “political considerations”. I pressed him a bit, but he wouldn’t elaborate on that cryptic statement. Given what I know now those “political considerations” could well have been NAZI or 33rd degree Free Mason “considerations”, or even publicly unknown, perhaps esoteric, Egyptian “considerations”.
So who is Farouk El-Baz? (I mean in the essential sense.) I don’t presume to know with specificity, but he is very well connected at the highest levels in Egypt and obviously in the USA, as well. In 1978 he was appointed science adviser to the late-President of Egypt, Anwar Sadat. For many years, he has also been a close friend and associate of Zahi Hawass, until this year the long-time Director of the Supreme Council of Antiquities in Egypt, with oversight over all of the ancient monuments such as the Sphinx, the Pyramids, Luxor, etc. Farouk El-Baz’s brother, Osama El-Baz was also a senior advisor to Hosni Mubarak, the recently deposed, former dictator of Egypt. So he and his family are very well connected politically. Since his NASA days, Farouk El-Baz has held a variety of high level, prestigious, scientific and engineering positions. He currently is Research Professor and Director of the Center for Remote Sensing at Boston University.
But to come to the point, why was he suddenly brought into the very highest level of NASA in 1967? Remember that in that era NASA was being run at the highest levels by a NAZI SS faction and also had a strong tie to 33rd degree Scottish Rite Free Masonry, which traces its roots back to ancient Egypt.
The obvious conclusion is that Farouk El-Baz was groomed as a young man to be the point man between the 33rd degree Masons, the NAZIs and the hidden political power structure behind the Apollo program (whatever that may have been). El-Baz must have been uniquely privy to esoteric Egyptian information or lore that both the NAZIs and the 33rd degree Masons accepted as crucial to the success of the Apollo program. How else to explain his highly improbable, meteoric rise to such great scientific power, prestige and influence at the young age of 29 years?
The German connection is there in his two years at Heidelberg University in 1964-1965. Remember that the period 1960-1966 was also the time of the Egyptian Project Paperclip, when hundreds of NAZI engineers and scientists were brought to Egypt by Gamal Nasser, to run his rocket and missile program at Heliopolis. It is an absolute certainty that these German scientists and engineers personally knew their Project Paperclip counterparts in the USA. This was only 15 to 20 years after WW II and a great many of them would have worked together during the Third Reich, at places like Peenemuende.
I doubt that it is a coincidence that the last director of Sakr Factory 333, in the period of 1965-1966 or so, was Eugen Saenger, the father of the technology that ultimately resulted in NASA’s space shuttle program. Saenger started working on this concept all the way back in the 1930s and 1940s, during the Third Reich. In Saenger’s scheme the manned orbital unit was called Horus. Of course, Horus is one of the best known Gods of ancient Egypt. I don’t know how all of this fits together, but it can’t be coincidental that Eugen Saenger turned up in Egypt the year before Farouk El-Baz was sent from Egypt to the USA to collaborate with Saenger’s “ex”-NAZI colleagues on NASA’s Apollo program.
The obvious Masonic connection is there in the numerical designation of Factory 333 as the R&D site of Nasser’s “ex”-NAZI-led missile and rocket program. To this day, the successor factory has a P.O. Box 33, a conspicuous 33rd degree Masonic calling card.
There is no question that there is a highly secretive, furtive, stealthy, immensely well-funded, exotically high-tech, parallel society that has a vampiric or parasitic relationship to the broader society in which most contemporary Earth humans live. This parallel society has constructed numerous underground and undersea bases and tunnel complexes, both in the USA and elsewhere around the world. It has also developed non-conventional electrogravitic and antigravity technologies. It has an extensive footprint off the planet, as well as underground and undersea here on Earth. It has likely established bases and/or colonies on the Moon and Mars, and perhaps farther afield than that. It probably has a working relationship with one or more extraterrestrial species or civilizations. It is sucking money and raw resources out of the global economy like nobody’s business.
The NAZIs are involved, high-level Masonic factions are involved, major corporations and military agencies are involved, the big banks and financial institutions are involved, espionage agencies such as the CIA and NSA are involved, and for all I know secretive factions of certain Mormon and Roman Catholic organizations are involved, too. This is just a partial list of some of the likely players in this scenario. Clearly this network extends beyond the USA, indeed it supersedes the official policy and power apparatus of the USA government and military agencies, or of any other government or military institutions. The typical American president or senator is likely to know comparatively little (maybe even nothing) about these matters. In fact, I probably know more about these things than the vast majority of politicians do, not because of any unique quality or ability I have, but simply because I have inquired into the topic.
I take seriously the idea that these exotic electrogravitic and antigravity technologies also have an effect on the time stream, i.e., that they can be used to engineer or render plastic the flow of time, or the experience of time.
As far as I can see, there is a grand, multi-dimensdional chess game underway, with multiple competing factions contending amongst themselves across a vast stretch of space and time, leaping back and forth, not only spatially, in a geographic sense, but also temporally, skipping back and forth through time, tweaking the sequence of events, endeavoring to guide the whole grand time-space pageant on their preferred trajectory.
I think everything is in play, not just the control and destiny of this planet, or of this solar system, but conceivably of the whole galaxy, and beyond. This is a high stakes match for keeps, a power play for all the marbles.
In that regard, the year 2012 looks to be shaping up as an especially crucial year in this tangled equation. The wild card is the collective or planetary consciousness of the great mass of humanity.
How many people are there who are awake, or awakening? And exactly how awake and aware are they? What will humanity do as greater and greater numbers of people awaken? How does that affect the flow of the game?
Does that potentially create a checkmate, and a resetting of the multi-dimensional chess board? Perhaps the abrupt abandonment en masse of the chess match entirely, in favor of a wholly different approach to life and time-space?
To wit: we, the great mass of contemporary humanity on planet Earth, have been, and are now still being massively lied to. What are we going to do about that?

Declassified in 1997 as part of the GAO’s investigation sponsered by the late Congressman Schift (Rep – New Mexico) in the Roswell incident, project SIGN began in 1947 as an Air Force investigation of UFOs, headed by Col. H. M. McCoy, Chief of Intelligence, Air Materiel Command, Wright Patterson AFB, Dayton Ohio. Project SIGN ended in early 1949 when the name was changed to Project GRUDGE, though Col. McCoy remained in charge of the successor project. The 900 pages of released documents are primarily UFOB intelligence reports, some with good data and administrative correspondence, green fireball reports of 48-49 in the desert southwest. The Fund for UFO Research has an excellent summary of the Air Force’s project SIGN documents.
At approximately 3.00 p.m. on the afternoon of 24 June 1947, pilot Kenneth Arnold had his now-classic UFO encounter near the Cascade Mountains, Washington State. According to Arnold, he viewed nine, elliptical-shaped objects flying in a wedge-like formation and stated that the objects flew as a saucer would if it were skimmed across a pool of water. The Flying Saucer mystery had begun. In the weeks and months after Arnold’s now-historic encounter, a wealth of other reports reached both the military and the media.
On 28 June, while flying at a height of 10,000 feet and 30 miles northwest of Lake Meade, Nevada, an Air Force Lieutenant reported seeing five or six white, circular-shaped UFOs in close formation and traveling at a speed of approximately 285 miles per hour.
The following day, a party of three – including two scientists – reported seeing a large UFO near the White Sands Missile Range. They were able to keep the object in view for almost a full minute and described it as disk-shaped, moving at high speed and with no discernible wings.
On 7 July 1947, five Portland, Oregon, police officers reported varying numbers of disks flying over different parts of the city; and on the same day, William Rhoads of Phoenix, Arizona, saw an object not dissimilar to that reported by Kenneth Arnold. Seventy-two hours later, a Mr. Woodruff, a Pan-American Airways mechanic, reported seeing a circular-shaped UFO flying at high speed near Harmon Field, Newfoundland.
As the summer of 1947 drew to a close and the Air Force had become an independent entity of the military, Air Intelligence demanded a report from Air Materiel Command regarding the then-current opinions on “flying disks”. Lieutenant General Nathan F. Twining, the Commander of the Air Materiel Command at Wright Field, held a conference with individuals attached to the Propeller Laboratories of Engineering Division T-3, the Air Institute of Technology, and the Office of Chief Engineering Division. The result was a 23 September 1947, memorandum sent by Twining to Brig. General George Schulgen, Chief of the Air Intelligence Requirements Division. It concluded that:
a. The phenomenon reported is something real and not visionary or fictitious.
b. There are objects probably approximating the shape of a disk, of such appreciable size as to appear to be as large as man-made aircraft.
c. There is a possibility that some of the incidents may be caused by natural phenomena, such as meteors.
d. The reported operating characteristics such as extreme rates of climb, maneuverability, and actions which must be considered evasive when sighted or contacted by friendly aircraft and radar, lend belief to the possibility that some of the objects are controlled either manually, automatically, or remotely.
e. The apparent common description of the objects is as follows:
(1) Metallic or light reflecting.
(2) Absence of trail, except in a few instances when the object apparently was operating under high performance conditions
(3) Circular or elliptical in shape, flat on bottom and domed on top.
(4) Several reports of well kept formation flights varying from three to nine objects.
(5) Normally no associated sound, except in three instances a substantial rumbling roar was noted.
(6) Level flight speeds normally above 300 knots are estimated.
f. It is possible within the present U.S. knowledge – provided extensive detailed development is undertaken – to construct a piloted aircraft which has the general description of the object in subparagraph (e) above which would be capable of anapproximate range of 7,000 miles at subsonic speeds.
g. Any development in this country along the lines indicated would be extremely expensive, time consuming, and at the considerable expense of current projects and therefore, if directed, should be set up independently of existing projects.
h. Due consideration must be given to the following:
(1) The possibility that these objects are of domestic origin – the product of some high security project not known to AC/AS-2 or this Command.
(2) The lack of physical evidence in the shape of crash recovered exhibits which would undeniably prove the existence of these objects.
(3) The possibility that some foreign nation has a form of propulsion, possibly nuclear, which is outside of our domestic knowledge.
As a result, Air Materiel Command requested that a directive be issued assigning a permanent project to study the UFO phenomenon. On 30 December 1947, Major General L. C. Craigie, Director of Research and Development, issued an order that would establish Project Sign as the investigative body tasked with examining UFO reports. It would be the role of Sign to: “… collect, collate, evaluate and distribute to interested government agencies and contractors all information concerning sightings and phenomena in the atmosphere which can be construed to be of concern to the national security.”
During the first six months of 1948, Project Sign studied UFO reports at Wright-Patterson AFB and focused much of its attention on the possibility that some UFOs were, indeed, other-worldly in origin.
On 5 August 1948, the Project Sign team determined that it was time for an evaluation of the data obtained. As a result, a Top Secret Estimate of the Situation was prepared by the US Air Force’s Air Technical Intelligence Center, which concluded that UFOs were interplanetary spacecraft. This was to cause widespread dismay and concern amongst the higher echelons of the military and the conclusions of the report were rejected, largely on the orders of Chief of Staff, General Hoyt Vandenberg, who argued that the Estimate was bereft of any firm evidence to support such beliefs. As a result of this, the ET-hypothesis lost favor within Sign; and those involved in the production of the report were rapidly reassigned alongside rumors of a lack of morale within the project.
Nevertheless, by the end of 1948, Project Sign had received several hundred UFO reports, of which 167 had been classed as “good”; and almost 40 of which were considered to be “unknown”. By 16 December 1948, however, the work of Sign (much of which supported the ET-hypothesis) came to a close; and Brigadier General Donald Putt changed the name and made way for the more debunking-oriented Project Grudge.
If the Estimate of the Situation report was rejected by General Vandenberg, one might ask, is that because the conclusion was based on faulty data or is there a more sinister scenario? It is known that the project only carried a 2A restricted classification (with 1A being the highest); and whilst the project could, under required circumstances, be assigned a higher clearance, this suggests strongly that Sign personnel did not have blanket need-to-know with respect to the UFO mystery. Interestingly, the author and investigator Kevin Randle has spoken with a U.S. colonel who had worked with ATIC in the late 1940s and who confirmed the existence of the Estimate of the Situation and was aware that it had been hand-delivered to Vandenberg. According to the colonel, Vandenberg ordered that two paragraphs be removed from the Estimate – both of which referred to UFO crashes in New Mexico. Vandenberg’s actions seem to suggest that (a) Project Sign’s conclusions were being manipulated from the very beginning; and (b) there were those within the military that wanted Sign kept strictly out of the crashed UFO/Majestic 12 loop.
SUNDAY, MAY 31, 2009 TIM SHADEY
Newly discovered documents reveal that in the months immediately following the purported 1947 UFO crash at Roswell, secret government studies began on a material that was previously unknown to science. The “memory metal” that was studied precisely matches some of the debris material reported by several witnesses to the crash. Evidence shows that -under military direction- these unique metal studies were undertaken by a contracted laboratory that possessed advanced technical capabilities that the U.S. government itself did not have at the time. A former high-level scientist employed by the involved laboratory has offered a confession that he was tasked to study the crashed UFO material. Information provided by two U.S. Air Force Generals also offers direct support for this discovery.
The documents suggest that after the crash, the US government attempted to develop a unique material that is today referred to as memory metal. This shape-recovery alloy was reported by several witnesses to the Roswell crash in the summer of 1947. The lightweight “morphing” material was able to be crumpled or deformed and then return itself instantly and seamlessly to its original state. The metallurgical discoveries that resulted from these studies were then “seeded” for further technology development to other government agencies (including NASA) and through a series of military contracts to universities and industry.
WRIGHT PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE
THE BATTELLE MEMORIAL INSTITUTE
The laboratory contracted by Wright Patterson Air Force Base to perform these studies was Battelle Memorial Institute in Columbus, OH. It has been credibly reported that Wright Patterson Air Force Base was the very base where the Roswell UFO debris was flown after the crash.
Recently obtained documents reveal that these studies for Wright Patterson were conducted at Battelle under the direction of Dr. Howard C. Cross. In the late 1940’s, H.C Cross was Battelle’s expert scientist in exotic metallurgy and Titanium alloy research.
Curiously –although he was a research metallurgist- Cross was also Battelle’s “point person” in later studies on UFOs that Battelle conducted in the early 1950’s for the U.S. Air Force’s official UFO study, Project Bluebook. Cross is likely an author of Project Bluebook’s still-missing Report Number 13. He is also the author of a strange letter from Battelle to Wright Patterson known as “The Pentacle” memo. Dr. Cross’ historic role will be detailed in a forthcoming article.
Founded in 1929, Battelle is engaged in research, development and commercialization of technological innovation. They specialize in materials science and engineering, life sciences, energy science and national security. Battelle contract operates many of our country’s National Laboratories. This includes some of the U.S.’s most sensitive installations such as Oak Ridge, Lawrence Livermore and Brookhaven laboratories. Battelle is headquartered in proximity to Wright Patterson- and remains one of the nation’s leading defense contractors. Their metallurgical capabilities and technical talent continue to be recognized as world-class.
The full story of the Roswell-Battelle connection is related in the newly published sequel book “Witness to Roswell” (Revised and Expanded Edition, 2009) by Tom Carey and Don Schmitt in chapter contributions made by this author. Scientific citations, references and report images are also included in this updated edition.
THE DEBRIS AND MEMORY METAL
The direct connection between the Roswell debris and the Battelle studies is revealed in a material known as Nitinol.
Nitinol is a specially processed combination of Nickel and Titanium, or NiTi. It displays many of the very same properties and physical characteristics as some of the crash debris materials that was reported at Roswell. Both are memory metals that “remember” their original shape and both are extremely lightweight. The materials are reported to have similar color, possess a high fatigue strength and are able to withstand extreme high heat.
Today Nitinol is incorporated in items as far-ranging as medical implants and bendable eyeglass frames. It is produced in many forms including sheet, wire and coil. Newer “intelligent metal” systems are being studied by NASA in the creation of bendable or flappable wings, as self-actuators and as a “self-healing” outer hull “skin” for spacecraft. It is believed that the memory metal found at Roswell came from the outer structures of a downed extraterrestrial spacecraft.
The earliest known combination of Titanium and Nickel reported in the scientific literature was in 1939 by two Europeans. However, this crude sample was a “by-product” of research entirely unrelated to the study of Nitinol. Its “memory metal” potential was not sought or noted. The scientists would have been unable to purify Titanium to sufficient levels at that time-and they would not have known about the energy requirement needed to create the “morphing” effect.
The next time that we see the unique combination of Titanium and Nickel emerge in science is by military scientists associated with Naval Intelligence at the US. Naval Ordnance Lab. It was there that Nitinol was “officially” created in the early 1960s. But Nitinol’s “official” history –including the date and reasons for discovery- is conflicting. More on this murky history will be detailed in a future article. Recently gained information suggests that it was in fact Battelle’s metallurgist and UFO researcher Dr. Howard Cross who “fed” the US Navy information (including the “phase diagram” and details on Titanium processing) that is required to create Nitinol.
Research by this author has confirmed that Nitinol studies actually began at Battelle immediately after the Roswell crash -and not in the early 1960s. And it was Wright Patterson (the base where the crash material was flown) that contracted this secret work.
This confirmation is given in a brief footnote found in a study by one of Nitinol’s “official” inventors at the U.S. Naval Lab. In that military report on Nitinol, the author footnotes a 1949 Battelle study which clearly pertains to the refinement of Titanium and Nickel. The citation relates to a “phase diagram” that examines states of matter and how the two metals could be successfully alloyed. If processed in the right way, the result is Nitinol memory metal. It is possible that the “official” co-inventors of Nitinol were unaware that the memory metal’s impetus was to be found in the study of the Roswell debris- or perhaps not.
Only three other references to this Titanium and Nickel memory metal report by Battelle have ever been found. In each case, they appear only as buried footnotes- and only in metals studies which were themselves conducted under U.S. military auspice. In one case this included having a “Project Monitor” present from Wright Patterson Air Force Base.
A historical analysis of the scientific literature shows that no other alloys had ever been studied by the U.S. military as a potential “memory metal” prior to this late 1940’s time frame -and Battelle’s Wright Patterson study contract.
Wright Patterson needed Battelle to accomplish this work. Much of the reason for this is because Battelle had something that Wright Patterson did not- an advanced arc furnace that was capable of melting and refining Titanium to the purity required to make memory metal.
The history of Titanium (which is required to make Nitinol) is itself also very revealing. We learn through review of the literature that, according to Encyclopedia Britannica: “After 1947, Titanium changed from a laboratory curiosity to an important structural metal.” According to the Industrial Arts Index, the number of science abstracts published on Titanium spiked dramatically from 1946 (and prior years) as compared to abstracts on Titanium written after 1947. In Rand Corporation’s 1962 abstract “The Titanium Decade” we learn that: “A far larger Titanium industry arose from the point of view of production capacity than was needed to produce the material that was actually used in aircraft. The time period of 1948-1958 involved virtually all of the costs.” An astonishing $2.5 billion (in today’s dollars) was spent on Titanium research by the US government in the years immediately following 1947.
THE SCIENTISTS AND THE REPORTS ARE IDENTIFIED
The Battelle memory metal report is titled “Second Progress Report on Contract AF33 (038)-3736” and was completed for Wright Patterson Air Force Base in 1949. It is authored by C.M. Craighead, F. Fawn and L.W. Eastwood. It appears to be part of a series of such contracts conducted through the early 1950s. Interestingly, the scientists who authored the report were very closely associated with Battelle’s chief Titanium metallurgist (and later, Battelle’s UFO researcher for Project Bluebook) Dr. Howard Cross, previously mentioned. The scientists went on to author reports on exotic metallurgy that related to such areas as “metal and superplasticity,” “metal transformation,” and “metal microstructures.”
Based on the sections of the studies that were found that reference this Battelle report- we know that this “progress report” offers the first “phase diagram” ever produced to attempt to successfully alloy Titanium and Nickel. This would be required to make memory metal. We can also infer that it examined refinement of Titanium to high purity levels. High purity Titanium is required to create the shape-recovery effect.
No references have ever been located to something that must surely exist- Battelle’s “First Progress Report” on the memory metal. While the Second Progress Report (completed in 1949) refers to techniques to process the alloy, the First Progress Report (authored in 1947 or 1948) probably relates to the actual analysis of “Roswellian” memory metal.
Although Nitinol is not identical to the Roswell debris material, it represents our best attempts at re-creation of the found memory metal. The impetus for this “shape-recovery” metallurgical research has to be the crash debris discovered at Roswell in the summer of 1947.
THE REPORTS ARE MISSING
A year long effort was made by this author to locate Battelle’s First and Second Progress Reports on memory metal. Though footnotes have been located to the reports in military sponsored studies on memory metal, access to the actual reports remains impossible.
Battelle’s own Historian/Librarian was unable to locate the documents. In a later follow-up call to Battelle, Sarasota Herald Tribune reporter Billy Cox was told that Battelle is still unable to find the report and that it remains a “mystery.” Likewise, Wright Patterson Air Force Base’s own Archivist and Manager of its Special Collections was unable to locate the documents. Both librarians from each organization worked together to find them. They are baffled and suggest that it may mean that the reports were destroyed (though there is no record of this) or that they may remain highly classified.
The U.S. DOD’s Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) is the master repository of our nation’s military-sponsored technical reports and studies. Their database also fails to locate the Battelle reports. Finally, with the guidance of reporter Billy Cox, a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request to the Secretary of the Air Force/WPAFB was filed by this author. Information has yet to be provided that is responsive to this request.
It is hoped that the Second Progress Report will one day be located. This is because if it does contain “phase diagrams” for the alloying of Nickel and Titanium- it will confirm the work on memory metal. It would strongly suggest that shape-recovery alloys were precisely what Battelle was attempting to create for the military in the time period directly after the Roswell crash. The likelihood that the First Progress Report by Battelle on memory metal will ever be found is even more remote.
CONFIRMATION BY TWO U.S. AIR FORCE GENERALS
In an interview conducted in the 1990’s, former Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Brigadier General Arthur Exon confirmed the existence of the Roswell metal reports. Exon, the Base Commander of Wright Patterson in the 1960s, related that he was privy to some of the details on the composition of the crash debris and the variety of tests that were performed on it. Astonishingly, Exon stated of the debris: “It was Titanium and some other metal they knew about, and the processing was somehow different.” Of course, special “processing” of Titanium and the “other metal” that “they knew about” (Nickel) is required to create Nitinol.
Exon added tellingly, “And it wouldn’t surprise me if the material wasn’t still around, certainly the reports are.” Exon was likely referring to the Battelle Progress Reports on memory metal done for Wright Patterson in the late 1940’s.
Air Force General George Schulgen (who led Intelligence at the Pentagon at the time of the Roswell incident) authored a previously-marked “secret” draft memo on the flying saucer issue on October 30, 1947- about four months after the crash.
In the verified version of this memo is found a section entitled “Items of Construction.” Schulgen instructs his officers to be aware of flying objects and their materials of construction. He specifically notes the “unusual fabrication methods to achieve extreme lightweight” and that the material is of a “composite construction…using various combinations of metals.”
Schulgen is describing precisely some of the very characteristics of Nitinol. Just like the Roswell debris material, it is an “extreme lightweight” intermetallic alloy. As a novel “composite construction,” it is created by an “unusual fabrication” method that “uses a combination of metals”- perhaps like Titanium and Nickel.
BATTELLE SCIENTIST CONFESSES TO UFO CRASH DEBRIS ANALYSIS
Battelle scientist Elroy John Center has stated that he analyzed metal from a crashed UFO when he was employed by the Institute. Center was a Senior Research Chemist who worked for Battelle for nearly two decades, from 1939 to 1957. This has been confirmed by both his University of Michigan alumni files and by the location of scientific papers that he authored during his employment while at Battelle.
A graduate Chemical Engineer, Center authored papers that appeared in highly technical journals. His areas of research included the chemical testing of metals; the microdetermination of metals in alloys; and the spectroscopic analysis of unique materials. Center was likely involved in early analysis of the Roswell debris. A groundbreaking metals analysis technique that Center developed has been found cited in studies related to the “polygraphic determination of Titanium” in alloys. Specially-selected Titanium is required to create the Roswell-like “memory metal” Nitinol.
Center’s family members confirm that he had an intense interest in UFOs and the extraterrestrial. In May of 1992, noted historical researcher Dr. Irena Scott of Columbus, OH (herself a former Battelle scientist) interviewed a close professional associate of Elroy Center. Elroy had privately related to him in June of 1960 that while he was employed at Battelle he had been involved in a very strange laboratory project. Center said that earlier he had been tasked by his superiors to assist on a highly-classified Battelle study that was contracted by the government. He said that the project involved work on a very unusual material. Center understood that this debris material was retrieved by the US government from the earlier crash of a UFO. Center referred to the item he studied as a “piece.” He explained that this “piece” was not something with which anyone was familiar. He also said that the debris had been inscribed with strange symbols that he called “glyphics.” Similar markings have of course been reported by some of the witnesses to the Roswell crash debris. Center stopped short of providing any further details. The Battelle scientist passed away in 1991. source
