Incredible Antarctica Discovery - What They Found in the Ice [pack] Incredible Antarctica Discovery You Wont Believe What They Found in the Ice.mp4 Antarctica’s secrets are slowly being revealed by increased volcanic activity that is melting the massive ice shelves exposing ancient artifacts and crashed extraterrestrial spacecraft. A secret agreement reached between the Eisenhower Administration and a German breakaway group in Antarctica, a transnational corporate space program began to emerge. The secret infusion of personnel and resources from US military contractors into Antarctica allowed this transnational corporate program to steadily grow into a major space power, eventually eclipsing the secret space programs run by the US Navy and Air Force, and the classified space programs of other nations. Dr. Michael Salla will discuss evidence of large research and development facilities built in huge natural cavern systems under the Antarctic ice sheets. Proof Secret Space Programs are Vastly More Advanced than the Public Realizes.mp4 Increasing numbers of insiders are confirming that we have already colonized our solar system with super-advanced technology. Looks into the secret space program, the possibility of secret bases on the Moon and the many rumors surrounding the military’s secret projects in space. This workshop will ask and answer many questions. Was involved in the Roswell crash investigation? Why did Wernher von Braun suddenly become fascinated with highly advanced theoretical physics propulsion systems and why did all of this public research suddenly go black in the early 1960s? Did NASA and the Pentagon know and expect to find evidence of alien bases on the Moon? Did the Apollo 12 astronauts deliberately damage the TV cameras in order to hide their explorations of one of these bases? Has teleportation been developed from captured alien technology and used to transport humans to secret NASA/DOD bases on Mars? Do space shuttle videos taken in the 1990s show proof of a highly advanced secret US space fleet? Does hacker Gary Mackinnon's discovery of defense department documents identifying non-terrestrial officers serving in space mean that the US has secret space platforms designed to fight a war with an alien race? And, have these secret military space platforms been photographed by civilian observers here on Earth? Steven Greer the Major Alien Disclosure Event We've all been Waiting for.mp4 Dr. Steven Greer returns to CONTACT in the DESERT to give us the disclosure event of the year we’ve all been waiting for. You will learn why ETs are here - and WHAT they are waiting for! How UFO and ET contact events are hoaxed – Secret technologies of the secret World – Manmade UFO and alien Abductions. Recent Disclosures from a First Family of Secrecy. Peoples Mass Disclosure: How Peaceful CE-5 Contact is the Ultimate act of enlightenment. Millions of people making peaceful Enlightened Contact WILL overwhelm the axis of Secrecy. The vision of the next 500,000 years of Universal Peace, Interstellar Community, Free Energy and Enlightenment. Ancient Sumerian Cuneiform Documentary Finally Reveals What Your Not Supposed to Know.mp4 Babylonians and Sumerians contributed with some of the most important discoveries and achievements. Not only did Sumerians have a complicated law system (including juries), medicine (including invasive procedures), ships and navigation, but more remarkably, an amazingly advanced knowledge of astronomy. Astronomy began with the first settlements of agricultural societies. Mesopotamia, the land between the Tigris and Euphrates rivers in what is today Iraq, was the birthplace of civilization almost 10,000 years ago. It is in ancient Sumeria that we find the oldest records of the study of astronomy. Babylon and Assyria were later civilizations in the same geographic area, and inherited the Sumerians' astronomical traditions and many of their myths and legends surrounding the skies.

World War II in Color Historic Films ebooks U.S. COAST GUARD WWII COLOR FILM "TASK FORCE" 72022 Released in 1944 by Warner Brothers in cooperation with the U.S. Coast Guard, "Task Force" is a Technicolor short film narrated by Jackson Beck. The film focuses around Coast Guard "Task Force" duty. Besides operational glimpses, the viewer is treated to a snapshot of the life of a Coast Guardsman on and off duty. While the film contains much documentary-style footage, some sections of the film are re-enactments and the scenario presented (in which the USCG battles a German U-boat and then lands troops on a Pacific Island) seems somewhat fanciful. A review of the film when it was released stated that the movie "acquaints the public with the very important role being played by the fourth of Uncle Sam's services. It is the story of an American invasion fleet going into action on an unnamed battle front. The first attack comes after the Coast Guard cutters have sighted the enemy. All hands are ordered to battle stations. The U-boats position is fixed, depth bombs are loosened, and the submarine surfaces, the big guns go into action and the U-boat sinks. Later the Navy sends out reconnaissance planes to meet twenty on-coming enemy aircraft. Now the ack-ack of the cutter roars defiance. The destination is reached and the Navy's big guns shell the enemy's fortifications through the day and through the night. Then comes the landing of the troops" 6th MARINE CORPS AT OKINAWA WORLD WAR II Reel 1 OF 2 20912 Created in 1945, this documentary film shows the massive battle for the island of Okinawa, focusing on the activities of the American 6th Marine Division. The 6th Marine Division was formed in September 1944. During the invasion of Okinawa it saw combat at Yae-Take and Sugar Loaf Hill and was awarded a Presidential Unit Citation. The 6th Division had also prepared for the invasion of Japan before the war ended. After the war it served in Tsingtao, China where the division was disbanded on April 1, 1946, being the only Marine division to be formed and disbanded overseas and never set foot in the United States. The Division's initial objectives in the amphibious landing was the capture of Yontan Airfield while protecting the left (North) Flank.Despite a Japanese battalion in their zone the Division met only light resistance and by the 3rd day was approaching Iskhikawa, twelve days ahead of schedule. By 14 April, the division had swept all through the northern Ishikawa Isthmus – 55 miles from the original landings. The division's rapid advance continued until eventually they encountered prepared and dug-in defenders at Yae-Take, where the majority of the Udo Force was entrenched. The Udo Force, or Kunigami Detachment, under Colonel Takehiko Udo was built around the 2d Infantry Unit of the 44th Independent Mixed Brigade – reinforced by having absorbed both former sea-raiding suicide squadrons and remnants of the Battalion earlier destroyed by the 6th – was responsible for defense of the Motobu Peninsula and Ie Shima. The 6th Division's drive captured most of northern Okinawa and the Division won praise for its fast campaign – Brigadier General Oliver P. Smith wrote: "The campaign in the north should dispel the belief held by some that Marines are beach-bound and are not capable of rapid movement."

Historic Films Arctic Antarctic Admiral Byrd Operation Highjump updated 2016 RICHARD E BYRD "DISCOVERY" 1933-34 EXPEDITION PART 1 74322 Also known as "Into Little America", this film shows Admiral Richard E. Byrd's second expedition to the South Pole. Paramount Pictures sent two cameramen along to film this expedition, and appears to have liberally re-created certain aspects of the journey (as the set pieces at the start of the film demonstrate). Ont his second expedition, in 1934, Byrd spent five winter months alone operating a meteorological station, Advance Base, from which he narrowly escaped with his life after suffering carbon monoxide poisoning from a poorly ventilated stove. Unusual radio transmissions from Byrd finally began to alarm the men at the base camp, who then attempted to go to Advance Base. The first two trips were failures due to darkness, snow, and mechanical troubles. Finally, Thomas Poulter, E.J. Demas, and Amory Waite arrived at Advanced Base, where they found Byrd in poor physical health. The men remained at Advanced Base until 12 October when an airplane from the base camp picked up Dr. Poulter and Byrd. The rest of the men returned to base camp with the tractor. This expedition is described by Byrd in his autobiography "Alon"e. It is also commemorated in a U.S. postage stamp issued at the time, and a considerable amount of mail using it was sent from Byrd's base at Little America, which was powered by a Jacobs Wind 2.5 kW. Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd, Jr., USN (25 October 1888 – 11 March 1957) was an American naval officer who specialized in feats of exploration. He was a pioneering American aviator, polar explorer, and organizer of polar logistics. Aircraft flights, in which he served as a navigator and expedition leader, crossed the Atlantic Ocean, a segment of the Arctic Ocean, and a segment of the Antarctic Plateau. Byrd claimed that his expeditions had been the first to reach the North Pole and the South Pole by air. However, the majority of polar experts are now of the opinion that Roald Amundsen has the first verifiable claim to each pole. Byrd was a recipient of the Medal of Honor, the highest honor for heroism given by the United States.

U.S. NAVY IN ANTARCTICA THE SECRET LAND REEL 1 of 2 24972 The Secret Land is a 1948 American documentary film about an American expedition code-named "Operation High Jump" to explore Antarctica. It won the Academy Award for Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature. This documentary, filmed entirely by military photographers, recounts the U.S. Navy's 1946-47 expedition to Antarctica, known as Operation High Jump. The expedition was under the overall command of Admiral Richard E. Byrd, no stranger to the Antarctic. This was a large undertaking involving 13 ships and over 4000 thousand men. The fleet departed from Norfolk, Virginia traveling through the Panama canal and then southward to their final destination. The trip through the ice pack was fraught with danger and forced the submarine that was part of the fleet to withdraw. The trip was a success meeting all of its scientific goals. The film is narrated by three Hollywood stars, all of whom served in the US Navy: Robert Taylor, Robert Montgomery and Van Heflin. In 1946, the U.S. Navy launches "Operation Highjump" to explore and map the Antarctic region and, in the process, test men, ships and equipment against the harsh climate. Chester W. Nimitz, Chief of Naval Operations, directs the expedition. Three groups make up the expedition: The central land-plane group, headed by Rear-Admiral Richard E. Byrd, will explore and map the interior from a base in Little America, while two other groups will explore and map the eastern and western coasts. The teams must finish their work before the end of the brief Antarctic summer. In addition to scientific equipment and other supplies, the ships carry sled dogs to provide land transportation. At the equator, men and dogs who have never crossed the equator are initiated in humorous King Neptune ceremonies. When strong storms hit the ships in the southern hemisphere, many sailors are injured and several seaplanes are lost. The rough seas prevent the central group from landing at Scott Island, but despite this setback, the men onboard celebrate Christmas with a traditional dinner and gifts. The central group now depends on an icebreaker to cut a path through the ice pack in the Ross Sea to the Bay of Whales and the base at Little America on the Ross Ice Shelf. Meanwhile, the western group has reached Peter Island. From there, seaplanes scout the coast, where they find explorer Robert Scott's former camp. The progress of the central group is hampered by ice, and the submarine accompanying the ships is caught between two ice flows. The icebreaker returns to free the submarine, which is sent home. While the western group waits for the icebreaker's return, they observe and capture for further study penguins, seals and other Antarctic wildlife. When the central group reaches Little America, the explorers unload their equipment and, making use of the twenty-four-hour summer daylight, quickly build a tent city and airstrips. Admiral Byrd flies in on the first airplane, which lands perfectly, but the remaining planes must take off at night in order to beat an approaching storm. After the blizzard clears, ice is cleaned off the planes, and a man crawls down a shaft to an earlier base buried under the snow. The cold, dry air of Antarctica has perfectly preserved the supplies that were left behind. While mapping expeditions fly over the land, divers test cold-water survival suits in the frigid ocean. On flights from their base in the Bellany Islands, the eastern group spots Mt. Aramis, the only active volcano near the South pole, and near the Shakleton Ice Shelf, the explorers discover 500 miles of snowless land heated by warm water lakes, which they name Bunger's Oasis. The short summer is ending, and the fleet near Little America is becoming frozen in the ice. After the fleet is freed by an icebreaker, it departs, leaving behind Byrd and some volunteers to continue explorations by air. During the eastern group's mapping of the Phantom Coast, mountains made of coal are discovered. A crew is lost during one flight, and after a search of two weeks, the survivors are found. Three men die in the crash and one, badly burned, loses his legs to frostbite. The icebreaker returns to pick up Byrd and his men, and the successful expedition returns home, having learned much about this largely unknown territory. Admiral Richard Byrd Crashes Plane Near Paris & South Pole 1928 84710e HD This short silent film dates to 1927-28, and shows Admiral Richard Byrd's activities at this time, mounting a polar expedition and vying for one of aviation's grandest prizes. Rear Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd, Jr., USN (25 October 1888 -- 11 March 1957) was an American naval officer who specialized in feats of exploration. He was a pioneering American aviator, polar explorer, and organizer of polar logistics. Aircraft flights, in which he served as a navigator and expedition leader, crossed the Atlantic Ocean, a segment of the Arctic Ocean, and a segment of the Antarctic Plateau. Byrd claimed that his expeditions had been the first to reach the North Pole and the South Pole by air. However, majority of polar experts are now of the opinion that Roald Amundsen has the first verifiable claim to each pole. Byrd was a recipient of the Medal of Honor, the highest honor for heroism given by the United States. In 1927 Byrd was one of several aviators who attempted to win the Orteig Prize in 1927 for making the first nonstop flight between the United States and France. During a practice takeoff with Tony Fokker at the controls and Bennett in the co-pilots seat, the Fokker Trimotor airplane, America, crashed, severely injuring Bennett and slightly injuring Byrd. As the plane was being repaired, Charles Lindbergh won the prize by completing his historic flight on May 21, 1927. But Byrd continued with his quest, naming Balchen to replace Bennett as chief pilot. Byrd, Balchen, Acosta, and Noville flew from Roosevelt Field East Garden City, New York on 29 June 1927. Arriving over France, cloud cover prevented a landing in Paris; they returned to the coast of Normandy and, as seen in this film, crash landed near the beach at Ver-sur-Mer without fatalities on 1 July 1927. 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. (Note - Some sources claim that the distinction of being the youngest admiral in the history of the US Navy belongs to Elmo Zumwalt but Zumwalt was 44 years old at the time of his promotion to rear admiral.) After a further summer of exploration, the expedition returned to North America on 18 June 1930. A 19-year-old American Boy Scout, Paul Allman Siple, was chosen to accompany the expedition. Unlike the 1926 flight, this expedition was honored with the gold medal of the American Geographical Society. This was also seen in the film With Byrd at the South Pole (1930) which covered his trip there. Byrd, by then an internationally recognized, pioneering American polar explorer and aviator, served for a time as Honorary National President (1931--1935) of Pi Gamma Mu, the international honor society in the social sciences. In 1928, he carried the Society's flag during a historic expedition to the Antarctic to dramatize the spirit of adventure into the unknown, characterizing both the natural and social sciences. videos: 1950s U.S. NAVY ICEBREAKER DOCUMENTARY FILM 76934 (480p).mp4 Admiral Richard Byrd Crashes Plane Near Paris & South Pole 1928 84710e HD (480p).mp4 ANTARCTIC NUCLEAR REACTOR AT McMURDO STATION 26042 (480p).mp4 Command of the Seas Arctic 28420 (360p).mp4 NAUTILUS VS THE ARCTIC - Men In Crisis, USS Nautilus 23830 (480p).mp4 OPERATION HIGHJUMP 83270 (480p).mp4 Operation Ski Jump II 1953 28490 (360p).mp4 POWER FOR CONTINENT SEVEN - US Navy , McMurdo Station , PM-3A 40110 2595 (360p).mp4 RICHARD E BYRD DISCOVERY 1933-34 EXPEDITION PART 1 74322 (480p).mp4 RICHARD E BYRD DISCOVERY 1933-34 EXPEDITION PART 2 74332 (480p).mp4 SEABEES IN THE ANTARCTIC (1959) - Base Construction 40120 (480p).mp4 SURVIVAL IN THE ARCTIC TUNDRA - C-119 Flying Boxcar 21890 (480p).mp4 The Antarctic - 1939 United States Navy Photographic Report 82070 HD (480p).mp4 THE UNITED STATES COAST GUARD ALASKAN PATROL 80840 (480p).mp4 U.S. NAVY IN ANTARCTICA THE SECRET LAND REEL 1 of 2 24972 (480p).mp4 U.S. NAVY IN ANTARCTICA THE SECRET LAND REEL 2 of 2 24972 (480p).mp4 USS Nautilus Arctic Passage - Operation Sunshine, North Pole 20860 HD (480p).mp4 USS NAUTILUS ARCTIC PASSAGE OPERATION SUNSHINE PART 1 2086 (360p).mp4 USS NAUTILUS ARCTIC PASSAGE OPERATION SUNSHINE PART 2 2086 (360p).mp4 USS NAUTILUS AT THE POLE NEWSREEL 2015 (360p).mp4 USS SEA DRAGON UNDER THE ICE 9004 (360p).mp4 VICTORY AT SEA THE MAGNETIC NORTH 4015 8203 (360p).mp4 ebooks: A Journey to the Earths Interior by Marshall B Gardner.pdf Admiral Byrd's Secret Journey Beyond the Poles by Tim R Swartz.pdf Baker Alan - Invisible Eagle, Thule Admiral Byrd Project.pdf Byrd expedition takes new foods to the Antarctic.pdf Byrd Letter to Judge Bennett.pdf Das Tagebuch des Admiral Byrd (german).pdf Exploring with Byrd by Richard E Byrd.pdf Goerler - To the Pole, The Diary and Notebook of Richard E Byrd.pdf Hollow Earth - Agartha (complete).pdf Little America aerial exploration in the Antarctic, the flight to the South pole.pdf Some oceanographic observations on operation HIGHJUMP final report.pdf Some studies of radio transmission over long paths made on the Byrd Antarctic expedition.pdf The fight to conquer the ends of the earth.pdf The Inner Earth Realm of Agartha.pdf The Missing Diary of Admiral Richard E Byrd.pdf tags: arctic, antarctic, expedition, Byrd, highjump, nautilus, polar, navy, Alaska

89 Cold War Films (updated 2016) The Hollow Nickel Case (or the Hollow Coin) was the FBI investigation that grew out of the discovery of a container disguised as a U.S. coin and containing a coded message, eventually found to concern espionage activities of Vilyam Genrikhovich Fisher (aka Rudolf Ivanovich Abel) on behalf of the Soviet Union. The Steven Spielberg film Bridge of Spies, released on October 16, 2015, focuses on the events surrounding the Hollow Nickel Case and its historical ties to the Francis Gary Powers U-2 incident of 1960. On June 22, 1953, a newspaper boy (fourteen-year-old Jimmy Bozart), collecting for the Brooklyn Eagle, at an apartment building at 3403 Foster Avenue in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, was paid with a nickel (U.S. five cent piece) that felt too light to him. When he dropped it on the ground, it popped open, revealing that it contained microfilm. The microfilm contained a series of numbers. He told the daughter of a New York City Police Department officer, and that officer told a detective who in two days told an FBI agent about the strange nickel. After agent Louis Hahn of the FBI obtained the nickel and the microfilm, the agency tried to find out where the nickel had come from and what the numbers meant. The nickel had a 1948 front, but the back was minted sometime between 1942 and 1945, based on the copper-silver alloys used. There were five digits together in each number, 21 sets of five in seven columns and another 20 sets in three columns, making a total of 207 sets of five digits. There was no key for the numbers. The FBI tried for nearly four years to find the origin of the nickel and the meaning of the numbers. It was when KGB agent Reino Häyhänen (aka Eugene Nicolai Mäki) wanted to defect in May 1957 from Paris, that the FBI was able to link the nickel to KGB agents, including Mikhail Nikolaevich Svirin (a former United Nations employee) and Vilyam Genrikhovich Fisher. Häyhänen was being recalled to Moscow for good, and defected on the way back in Paris. The deciphered message in the nickel turned out to be only a personal message to Häyhänen from the KGB in Moscow welcoming him to the U.S. and instructing him on getting set up. He gave the FBI the information that it needed to crack the cipher, uncover the identity of his two main contacts in New York (Svirin and Fisher), and a nearly identically made Finnish 50 Markka coin. 1.

NUMBER 1, 3RD OF DECEMBER. When Fisher was arrested, the hotel room and photo studio that he lived in contained multiple items of modern espionage equipment: cameras and film for producing microdots, cipher pads, cufflinks, a hollow shaving brush, shortwave radios, and numerous "trick" containers. Fisher was brought to trial in New York City Federal Court and indicted as a Russian spy in October 1957 on three counts: Conspiracy to transmit defense information to the Soviet Union; Conspiracy to obtain defense information; and Conspiracy to act in the United States as an agent of a foreign government without notification to the Secretary of State. On October 25, 1957, the jury found Fisher guilty on all three counts. On November 15, 1957, Judge Mortimer W. Byers sentenced Fisher to three sentences to be served concurrently: 30 years' imprisonment; 10 years' imprisonment and $2,000 fine; 5 years' imprisonment and $1,000 fine. On February 10, 1962, Fisher was exchanged for American Central Intelligence Agency Lockheed U-2 pilot Francis Gary Powers, who was a prisoner of the Soviet Union.
