The absolutely delicious Lola GT MK6, designed by Eric Broadley.

For reasons unknown it never got much ink, despite it’s actual awesomeness.

Said awesomeness was such that this car became the basis for the legendary and iconic Ford GT40. Just so you know how good this car is…

I always loved it from the bottom of my heart and I still do.

How ’bout them Cortina taillights, eh what?! Heehee!

Out in a far away land, in the middle of the desert, at night. While planes are dropping bombs on you. Not a good way to spend your evenings, but sometimes necessary. Because humans suck. And they also let elite fat cats order them to go and die so they can have another yacht or two.

Lord make it stop.

Rare audio on Westall UFO Encounter – James Kibel talked to Westall teacher (1966) [QUFOSR]

Published on Aug 5, 2018

Big shout out to The Project and all the other huge mainstream media outlets that couldn’t even give the channel a single mention or credit. All this work we do is purely fore the few minute piece you created, thanks from the channel you never credited.

This video contains rare audio of James J. Kibel (commonly confused as James E. McDonald as it was later sent to him) discussing the infamous Westall UFO incident after meeting with the science teacher who witnessed the object. I believe this is the first copy to be posted on YouTube and is relatively rare.

Here are notes of interest below if you’re having trouble understanding the audio: – Science master, two other staff and 300 kids watched a UFO maneuver over the school

– 5 planes tried to intercept the UFO

– Science master was in the same club as Mconalds brother-in-law, a bizarre coincidence. Because of this connection Mcdonald invited the Science teacher over and discussed in depth what he witnessed.

– Believes it wasn’t the officials who squashed the sighting, it was the head master. He was so scared he refused to go into school yard even after it was back in the sky.

– When the Royal Australian Air Force tried to contact the headmaster he told them ‘go jump in a lake’

– Children ran into science masters room hysterical so he went to look himself

– Couldn’t see UFO at first but saw other children looking towards the north-east

– When he joined the children he saw the UFO hovering just above power lines – Science master described the object as a bright silver object, size of a tire with a ‘bar/rod’ into the air.

– At this point he noted a light plane moving towards it about 1000ft up, 2000ft from where he was standing

– Now joined by more children and the physical education teacher they watched

– The light plane supposedly called in other planes and 4 converged on object with this light plane

– Science master says most amazing flight maneuvering he ever seen in his life commenced, planes were doing everything possible to approach the object. Amazed there was no collision.

– Every time planes got near the object it would slowly accelerate, then rapidly accelerate away from the planes and then stop again. Every time they chased it would do the same.

– This continued for 20 minutes, by this stage 360 people (children, staff) were watching – The thing shot away in seconds (I don’t know if I heard that correctly, so sorry)

– The headmaster then come out and demanded everyone to return to their classes at once and gave the school a lecture. He told the students they would be punished if they discussed it and told staff they’d lose their jobs if they did.

– Science master has 3 degrees, was not stupid. He was very annoyed with the headmaster

– When asking the PE teacher to describe what she saw in detail she wouldn’t say anything

– One of the older children confirmed the full story and accurately described the object. When going to re-ask the student she was no long there, she had gone home and wouldn’t discuss it again. The Westall UFO encounter is an event that occurred on 6 April 1966 in Melbourne, Australia. For more than 20 minutes 200 students and teachers at two schools allegedly witnessed an unexplained flying object which descended into a nearby open wild grass field. The paddock was adjacent to a grove of pine trees in an area known as The Grange. According to reports, the object then ascended in a north-westerly direction over the suburb of Clayton South, Victoria, Australia.

Ah, Westall… a favorite among favorites and an important case in the annals of UFO history. So much has been lost that it is a Godsend when things like this come to light.

Rather disturbing how it cuts off at the end in not only mid-sentence but mid-word as well. Where’s the rest? I have heard a new documentary is in the works… this is likely from that… I definitely want to see it.

Westall UFO Park trees are bent inwards

Published on Jul 28, 2015

Pete and Solreta do a video on how the tress are bent inwards at Westall in Australia, which is where a UFO event took place in 1966 with around 200 witnesses. Weirdly, it is apparently said that the trees are doing the same thing where Travis Walton’s experience took place. Maybe something to it and worth taking note on.

Dig it. The truth will come out eventually. But we want “eventually” to be NOW!

ameliaI have posted about Amelia before with information from the same source, Mr. Mike Campbell, who is currently the only person on earth telling the actual story of what happened to Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan.

There is a foul and thoroughly disgusting pile of animated pig poops named Gillespie who has a phony baloney group that regularly goes on phony expeditions, finding phony ‘evidence’ and bleating all over the place about it. It is all 100% horseshit. There are others, too, like whoever did that stupid photo a while back and anyone who commented on it.

What happened to her and her navigator has been known for decades. It was even in the newspapers in 1960.

But people don’t pay attention because they have been carefully conditioned not to. Any mention of a mystery is a lie.

The fliers were captured by the Japanese after landing at Mili Atoll in the Marshall Islands, which was at the time owned and controlled by the Japanese, who were, at the time, extremely nasty people. They took Earhart and Noonan and imprisoned them on the island of Saipan. They met their deaths there. Their aircraft was found in a hangar on Saipan and destroyed by the United States Military after the invasion of Saipan by our forces.

There is no mystery.

This situation has been attested to by no less a person than General Nimitz. You know, the Marine hero who has a class of ship named after him. Yes, that guy. And two other guys who had ranks like his.

The real reason for all the bull poops is that at the time Amelia was the Darling of the entire world, especially, of course, America. She had a status that no one today or in recent memory has. Times were different then. The reason for the cover up was due to the fact that the despicable wuss Franklin Delano Roosevelt — who KNEW where she was — chose to leave her and Mr Noonan there to die — rather than upset the Japanese.

If the American people ever found that out he would have been literally dragged through the streets and hanged. Make no mistake about that.

Why it still continues to this day with dickheads like Gillespie disparaging her memory … especially as it was freaking published way back when, I cannot fathom. FDR had much clout, I guess. Not with me.

It really upsets me, though, as you might be able to tell.

So I have now posted, prompted by a new post at Mr. Campbell’s blog, which I have reproduced below in a moment of really bad blogging etiquette along with a thorough interview of Mr. Campbell by the Expanded Perspectives guys.

I have bought his book and it is amazing. You should, too, if you want to learn the facts about this topic. It’s now less than a 20 in paperback at amazon.

Please honor this fabulous woman who along with her intrepid navigator died a most unpleasant death, abandoned by our forces who could I bet have definitely saved them.

Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last

Expanded Perspectives Podcast
Published on Apr 14, 2016

On this episode of Expanded Perspectives the guys talk with Mike Campbell about his new book “Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last” the second edition.

Nearly everything the American public has seen, read and heard in the media for nearly 80 years about the so-called Amelia Earhart mystery is intentionally false or inadvertently misleading. The widely accepted myth that the disappearance of Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan during their ill-fated world-flight attempt in July 1937 is among the greatest aviation mysteries of the 20th century is an abject lie, the result of decades of government propaganda that continues unabated to this day.

Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last dismantles and debunks the popular theories that Amelia Earhart’s Electra crashed and sank off Howland Island on July 2, 1937, or landed at Gardner Island, now Nikumaroro, where the suddenly helpless fliers died of starvation on an island teeming with food sources.

The Truth at Last presents many remarkable and enlightening new findings, eyewitness accounts, and never published revelations from unimpeachable sources including three famed U.S. flag officers and iconic newsman and Earhart researcher Fred Goerner’s files that reveal the truth about Amelia’s death on Saipan, as well as the sacred cow status of this matter within the U.S.

Mike Campbell served as an award winning print and broadcast journalist while on active duty with the U.S. Navy and as a civilian public affairs officer with the Air Force. As a result of an assignment to write a newspaper overview story about the so-called Earhart “mystery” for the Navy, Mike began seriously studying the history of research into the disappearance of Amelia Earhart. In 1988 he began a long–term correspondence with Thomas E. Devine, author of the 1987 classic, Eyewitness: The Amelia Earhart Incident, and soon became convinced that Devine, Fred Goerner, Paul Briand Jr., Vincent V. Loomis and Bill Prymak were correct when they claimed that Earhart and Fred Noonan died on Saipan at an undetermined date after they failed to reach Howland Island on July 2, 1937. After 14 years of collaboration with Devine, With Our Own Eyes: Eyewitnesses to the Final Days of Amelia Earhart, was published in 2002 by a small Ohio company.

He retired in October 2008 after 30 years of combined military and civilian service, and lives in Jacksonville, Florida with his wife, Nee, and their cats. You can contact him at [email protected]

Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last
Propaganda versus fact in the disappearance of America’s First Lady of Flight

Did Nina Paxton hear Amelia’s calls for help? “Absolutely,” says longtime researcher Les Kinney

By earharttruth on July 30, 2018 at 12:07 am

Another July has nearly passed, a month when, for decades, two things have been certain.  Many will flock to Atchison, Kansas for the annual Amelia Earhart Festival love-in on her July 24 birthday, and a new dose of recycled snake oil purporting to solve the so-called “Earhart Mystery” as dictated to media stenographers by Ric Gillespie of TIGHAR, the only “internationally recognized expert” to whom anyone should listen, will be injected into a culture sodden with lies about Amelia’s fate.  We’ve been watching this revolting circus of endless deceit for 30 years now, with no relief in sight.

Last year Gillespie brought cadaver dogs to Nikumaroro to search for the remains of the lost fliers.  Words fail to express how utterly ridiculous this idea was, once one understands how many people lived and died there since the late 1930s, none of them Earhart or Fred Noonan!  Even more ludicrous, the U.S. and world media reported this absurd spectacle as if it were a serious attempt to find the lost fliers, while an ignorant, incurious public looked on without a word of protest against this attack on all common sense.

(Editor’s note:  Soon after this post was published, TIGHAR’s Tom King Ph.D. wrote to inform us that “Ric didn’t take the forensic dogs to Nikumaroro; he opposed our taking them. You can blame National Geographic and me for that outrage.”)

Amelia turned 121 on July 24, but who’s counting? Once in a blue moon the lady who was part tomboy, part grease monkey and all pilot would dress up for a photographer, and at these times she could be quite stunning, as in the above. Happy Birthday, Amelia! (Courtesy Bachrach.)

We can fairly wonder why our esteemed media gatekeepers never asked TIGHAR’s boss why he would be looking for Earhart’s bones on Nikumaroro, when the bones found there in 1940 were long gone, and according to University of Tennessee professor Richard L. Jantz, were almost certainly Earhart’s?  On March 7, 2018, The Washington Post covered the story thusly: Bones discovered on an island are hers, a new analysis shows.”

This July, Gillespie didn’t ask the credulous to believe that a jar of freckle cream, discarded pieces of aluminum, an old shoe sole, a zipper, a woman’s compact or even long disappeared human bones are proof that Earhart and Fred Noonan landed on Nikumaroro in the Phoenix Islands and died of starvation a week later on an island overflowing with food and water sources.

Gillespie has taken a more subtle approach this year, perhaps realizing that nearly everyone except the truly brain dead have had their fill of the annual hysteria and phony hype about the imminent “solution to the Earhart mystery” that he and his minions will soon produce.  These disinformation drills are always followed by absolutely nothing, as another worthless claim is debunked and falls by the wayside, relegated to the garbage pile of the assorted flotsam and jetsam that Gillespie and his cronies have scraped and dug out of Nikumaroro, where hundreds of native settlers and even U.S. Coast Guardsmen lived from the late 1930s to the ’60s.

In a lengthy paper titled “The Post-loss Radio Signals” he authored with Robert Brandenburg, Gillespie brings out his trademark bells, whistles, colorized graphs and charts that have long dazzled and bamboozled the unwary and made him infamous among the literate to proclaim:  “As with Dr. Jantz’s findings, the patterns and relationships emerging from the data show that TIGHAR has answered the 81-year-old question: what really happened to Amelia Earhart?”  None of this is new, and nothing Gillespie conjures up will ever place the lost fliers on Nikumaroro, because they were never there, as a mountain of legitimate evidence tells all who bother to take their eyes off the shiny objects TIGHAR is constantly waving at them.

The Washington Post, long a stalwart in the TIGHAR water-carrying brigade, led the way in this season’s current propaganda blitz with its July 25 story, Amelia Earhart’s last calls: Research suggests dozens heard radioed cries for help.”  Here’s the key excerpt from the Post story we will focus on forthwith:

On July 3, for example, Nina Paxton, an Ashland, Ky., woman, said she heard Earhart say “KHAQQ calling,” and say she was “on or near little island at a point near” . . . “then she said something about a storm and that the wind was blowing.”

“Will have to get out of here,” she says at one point. “We can’t stay here long.”

Note that the Washington Post says nothing about where the radio signals came from that Paxton claims she heard, despite the fact that Paxton named that location in some of her letters.   Of course not, because the Marshall Islands are nowhere near Nikumaroro, where Gillespie and TIGHAR’s cash cow lives. 

Fox News, along with the rest of the usual suspects, followed the Post story with its own version of the same agitprop, and three comments with my name and Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last were expunged shortly after they appeared on the Fox News site.  This was reported to me by staunch supporter William Trail, who notices such things.  When it comes to the Earhart story, Fox News is far worse than the hated Washington Post, which Fox demeans as being too liberal.  Can you blame me for despising this “fair and balanced” news Gestapo? 

At least the Post briefly mentioned Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last in its new article, and even provided a link to its July 11, 2017 story, which gave me a few paragraphs to vent, thanks to Amy B. Wang, the story’s co-author who took the time to briefly interview me.  Pigs will fly before Fox News or any of the other mainline media would even consider doing such a thing.

In a letter to Fred Goerner describing her July 3 radio reception, Nina Paxton wrote, “We lost our course yesterday and came up here.  Directly Northeast of a part of Marshall Islands near Mili Atoll.”  (Photo courtesy Les Kinney.)

Longtime researcher Les Kinney has plenty more to say about Paxton’s claims, and he doesn’t file his stories with Fox News, the Washington Post or any other news organizations, for obvious reasons.  Occasionally he brings his work here, where the truth is always welcome and most appreciated, especially when it sheds new light on nagging questions.

The last time we heard from Kinney was his March 9 dismantling of the aforementioned TIGHAR-Richard Jantz-bones fantasies.  Although we still differ over his belief about the identity of the figure sitting on the dock in the Jaluit-ONI photo of History Channel infamy, as far as I can discern, we agree on virtually everything else of significance.

Without further delay, here’s some real Earhart news, courtesy of an Earhart researcher whose findings, with one well-known exception, will not be found in our corrupt media. (All boldface mine.)

The Nina Paxton Papers
By Les Kinney

At about 2:20 in the afternoon of July 3, 1937, Nina Paxton was fiddling with the tuner on her Philco radio in Ashland, Kentucky.  Suddenly, she heard Amelia Earhart “In a very clear strong voice.” For a few seconds, Nina attended to the needs of her five-year old son thinking Miss Earhart must be on a training flight.  When she then realized Amelia was crying for help, she listened and took a few notes.  A few minutes later, Earhart was gone.

Until her death on Christmas Day, 1970, Nina Paxton told anyone who would listen that Earhart had crash landed in the Marshall Islands.  She tried to remember everything she heard that day. She began standing vigil over her radio listening to the short wave band hoping to hear Amelia again.  A few years later, Nina wrote to Rand McNally looking for information on the Marshall Islands.  She developed a guilt complex and believed she hadn’t done enough to save Earhart’s life. She searched for new memories, words or phrases Amelia might have said on that early July afternoon that might have previously escaped her.  No one seemed to believe her.  In the mid-1940s, she wrote to the Office of Naval Intelligence, Walter Winchell, and the FBI.  Toward the end of her life she corresponded with Fred Goerner, the bestselling author of The Search for Amelia Earhart.  Nina’s letters always carried the same general message: Amelia Earhart landed in the Marshall Islands.

Skeptics said Nina could have gotten her information from newspapers, radio, and seeing the 1943 movie Flight for Freedom.  The fact that Nina waited a full week to tell her local newspaper didn’t help her credibility.  On July 9, 1937, the following brief article appeared in the Ashland Daily Independent. It differs from Nina’s notes from July and August 1937.  Nina had more to say than the local reporter sent to print:

Mrs. C.B. Paxton, 3024 Bath Avenue, told the Independent she heard the distress message of Amelia Earhart noted American woman flyer lost in the Pacific ocean last Saturday afternoon at two o’clock.  Miss Earhart and her navigator Frederick J. Noonan, last were heard from in the air at 2:12 EST last Friday when they said they had only a supply of gas good for thirty minutes.

This news story appeared in the Ashland (Kentucky) Daily Independent on July 9, 1937.

The message came in on my short wave set very plain,” Mrs. Paxton said, “and Miss Earhart talked for some time.  I turned the radio down one time to talk to my little child and then turned it back up to catch the last part of the message.

I didn’t understand everything Miss Earhart had said,” Mrs. Paxton told the Independent, because there was some noise.  She gave the following message as she understood it:

“Down in ocean,” then Miss Earhart either said ‘on,’ ‘or’ [sic] near little island at a point near. . . .” After that Mrs. Paxton understood her to say something about “directly northeast,” although she was not sure about that part. “Our plane about out of gas.  Water all around very dark.” Then she said something about a storm and that the wind was blowing. ‘Will have to get out of here,’ she said. “We can’t stay here long.”

The message was preceded by Miss Earhart’s call letters, “KHAQQ calling, KHAQQ calling.”   

Because Nina’s letters in the 1940s were so passionate, I suspected what she had to say was true.  Why would she lie? Nina was educated, married, a registered nurse, and had no bone to pick.  When I started investigating her background, I found out she died a widow in Ashland, Ky., Christmas Day in 1970.  She left no family.  Her husband passed away in 1954.  Her son got into one scrape after another until he ended up in prison.

It took me three years and quite a bit of luck to locate the Paxton papers.  Eventually, I discovered Nina’s Earhart files at tiny Mars Hills University in the mountains of western North Carolina.  They were donated to the university by a wife of a doctor that had worked with Nina in the 1950s.  The Paxton box had been collecting dust in a library storeroom since 1975.

I planned to report the Paxton findings in the book I am writing on the disappearance of Amelia Earhart.  Recent events caused me to change my mind.  TIGHAR just released a new Post Loss Radio Study touting the claims of Betty Klenck in 1937 as a 15-year-old claimed to have heard Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan on her home radio for several days.  None of the post-loss radio messages collected by TIGHAR give a location where Amelia and Fred went down.  The Paxton papers tell us Earhart and Noonan went down in the Marshall Islands.  Mars Hills University recently put a few of Nina Paxton’s letters on the internet: http://southernappalachianarchives.org/ /show/4.  It is time to share my findings.

There are over a hundred letters, some notes, and a few newspaper and magazine clippings making up the Paxton material.  I copied them all.  The first letter is dated July 14, 1937.  Nina continued to write and offer insight into the Earhart disappearance until close to her death.  After reviewing all the files, it appears there might be a few writings and reference notes missing.

At about 2 p.m. on July 3, 1937, local time, Nina Paxton heard Amelia Earhart’s distressed voice announce she had gone down in the Marshall Islands.  Nina had no idea where the Marshall Islands were located.  Nor did she know the call sign for Amelia Earhart’s Lockheed Electra wasn’t KHABQ.  After hearing Earhart on her radio, Nina went to the Ashland Police Department and then to a nearby Coast Guard Station to report what she had heard. They laughed at her and said the call sign for Earhart’s Electra was KHAQQ.  It was for this reason that Nina didn’t tell the local press of Earhart’s distress message until July 9, 1937.  Nina had no idea the call sign for Earhart’s previous plane, a Lockheed Vega, was KHABQ.  A tired, exhausted, worried and emotionally drained Amelia Earhart blurted out her old call sign the day Nina heard the distress message on July 3, 1937.  It would have been an easy thing to do.


“There is a picture of Amelia and Fred on the internet standing next to the tail of the Electra looking over such a map,” Les Kinney writes.  “If they relied on that map, Fred would have only had a general idea where he and Amelia had gone down.”

Nina Paxton heard the only post-loss radio report giving a specific location where Amelia and Fred landed.  During the two months following Earhart’s disappearance, Nina enclosed her rough notes in the letters she sent to Mrs. Noonan, George Palmer Putnam, Walter Winchell and Congressman Fred M. Vinson.  Nina typed the rough notes out twice and tried not to embellish what she had heard.  She created spaces where she was unsure of a word or phrase.  The first rough note is without a heading.  The second one is titled, “Call of a Courageous Lady.”  She didn’t like that either and scratched it out.

In some of her later notes, which aren’t on Mars Hill’s web site, Nina wonders why Amelia used the time of her arrival as 2:20.  She possibly thought Earhart might have converted the time to Eastern Standard Time and makes that point in later letters.  Nina puts this confusion in parentheses.  Nina’s two rough notes held by Mars Hill University seem to be a cumulative compilation she completed sometime in August 1937.  Nina says “the plane was damaged in landing near a part of Marshall Islands.” Amelia says Noonan was injured, and that he “doesn’t walk very well, and that he (Noonan) bruised his leg badly when landing.”

(Editor’s note:  This detail about Noonan’s leg injury is directly reflected by eyewitness Bilimon Amaron’s account to several researchers, including Vincent V. Loomis.  See pages 107-108 in Amelia Earhart: The Final Story.)

In a letter to George Putnam dated Aug. 5, 1937, Nina writes she found a piece of scratch paper she had written while listening to Earhart. Miss Earhart mentioned three little islands.  The little one (perhaps a reef) they were on, north of Howland Island at a point very near an island she called “Marshall.”  (Sadly, this little piece of scratch paper is missing from the Mars Hill holdings.)  Rather naively, Nina tells George Putnam in a letter dated Aug. 5, 1937, “If there is an island known by the name of Marshall and it can be contacted, I believe it well worthwhile to do so at once as I am sure Miss Earhart, and Captain Noonan will be found in this area.”  

Early researchers Vincent Loomis and Oliver Knaggs in the late 1970s and early 1980s focused their attention on the middle of three islands at Mili Atoll.  On my recent trips to Mili Atoll, we discovered airplane artifacts in the middle of three small islands.  Nina’s rough notes indicate she heard Earhart say, “Directly north-east of a part of Marshall Islands, 90 ****173 longitude and 5 latitude. We missed our course yesterday and came up here.”


This section of the “Sketch Survey” of Mili Atoll taken from U.S. and Japanese charts focuses on the northwest quadrant of Mili Atoll, where Barre Island is clearly noted.  Native witnesses saw the Electra come down near Barre, and Amelia Earhart and Fred Noonan were seen embarking the Electra and seeking shelter on one of the tiny Endriken Islands nearby.  Recent searches of the area by Dick Spink and Les Kinney have uncovered several artifacts that might have come from the Earhart Electra, but testing has not solely linked them to the Earhart plane to the exclusion of all others. 

No one knows whether Fred Noonan carried sectional maps for the Marshall Islands.  The U.S. Navy hadn’t the opportunity to map the area since the Japanese took control in 1914.  It wasn’t on their planned route and its likely Fred had to rely on an old British map of the Pacific from his seafaring days.  There is a picture of Amelia and Fred on the internet standing next to the tail of the Electra looking over such a map.  If they relied on that map, Fred would have only had a general idea where he and Amelia had gone down.

When Nina heard Amelia Earhart on the afternoon of July 3, 1937, she scratched down a few words where Amelia said they had landed. 90 ******173 longitude and 5 latitude.  If you look on a map, 5 degrees North latitude and 173 East longitude is not far from Mili Atoll.  (End of “Nina Paxton Papers.” )

I devoted nine pages of Chapter III, “The Search and the Radio Signals,” in Truth at Last, a section titled “The ‘Post-Loss’ Radio Messages,” (pages 40-49 TAL 2nd Ed.) to an examination of most of the significant alleged receptions from Amelia, but omitted Nina Paxton’s claims because at the time I wasn’t enthusiastic about them and hadn’t properly researched the Paxton claims to write about them intelligently.  Thanks to Les Kinney, we’re now much smarter about Nina Paxton.

So what are we to believe?  Did Amelia Earhart send radio messages from her downed Electra, transmissions that were heard by Nina Paxton in Ashland, Ky., by Pan American Airways, U.S. Navy stations in the central Pacific and numerous amateur radio operators in the continental United States?  I’m not technically smart enough to claim any special insights, but I’ve presented the educated verdicts of several experts in radio propagation and reception capabilities of the day in several posts.  For what its worth, I think Nina Paxton’s account could be the most compelling of all these alleged messages, and should be taken seriously at the very least.

You can find an extensive discussion of the significant post-loss messages in the three posts I wrote on this subject in 2014:

Earhart’s “post-loss messages”: Real or fantasy? published April 30, 2014, followed by Experts weigh in on Earhart’s ‘post-loss’ messages two weeks later, and finally Amelia Earhart’s alleged ‘Land in sight’ message remains a curiosity, if not a mystery | Amelia Earhart: The Truth at Last on May 27, 2014.

This is of prime importance to me.

The phony crap that pervades and infests the internet and the media is the real mystery. WHY?

Jim Clark was so good that in both of his championship-winning seasons (1963, 1965) he achieved the maximum possible score under the rules of the time. And in 1965 he did that AND skipped Monaco to win the Indianapolis 500! Simply the best.

Yes, indeed, make no mistake… he certainly was that good and more and deserves his status as a legend. An inspiration to everyone, including everyone he raced with.

A hero for me, that is for sure.

Practice makes perfect. Neil Armstrong gets familiar with landing a Lunar Module on the moon via the Lunar Landing Research Vehicle, 1967. Does that flying machine ever look precarious. They took off vertically via a single jet engine mounted on a gimbal. It was adjusted to cancel 5/6ths of the LLRV’s weight. One LLRV & 2 of the later Lunar Landing Training Vehicles were destroyed during training, including one nearly fatal test flight by Mr. Armstrong. Yet after ejecting to safety with mere seconds to spare, Neil brushed himself off & went back to his desk to complete office work. This man’s nerves did not rattle!

No, folks like Neil Armstrong don’t get rattled.

They came from a prior time in our history when men were still men.

Fortunately for us, there are still a few born in this time. Not as many, but we are still safe.

sflBefore Scuderia Ferrari were able to build their own cars, the team ran the wonderful cars of nearby Milano’s Alfa Romeo. There’s one just above! “Scuderia” is Italian for “stable,” which is naturally most appropriate for the now legendary and iconic Prancing Horse avatar above the perhaps equally iconic SF initials of the team.

Nowadays, Scuderia Ferrari S.p.A. is it’s own fully charged division of the Ferrari automobile company. It must be awesome to work there. It must be awesome to live on their street!

I found myself on the Rense site after discovering that a YouTube video I’d referenced that was of Harry Cooper and Jim Marrs talking about the Antarctic mission in 1938 had been deleted without trace. Even though this video had been sitting unopened on my pc for maybe a week, I was surprised and I cannot remember what made me put it in a new tab in the first place. At any rate, it had been a Rense video so I went there to see what was up. Hadn’t been to Rense in ages and ages. He’s basically a good guy but oh so gullible. He posts great factual stuff like Harry right alongside absolute, utter horsepoops like remote viewers and exopolitics and that sad Clark McLelland fellow, who I kind of feel sorry for. I think he’s taken Harry in! Oh dear.

Anyway, the show, from mid-2016, was on a supposedly “found” film that had photos and clips from the expedition and was 8 minutes long. Jim Marrs, RIP, was not on the show, so I’m not at all sure how he made it into the title. But I suspect Rense got a hold of Harry as the top expert on the German endeavors in WWII.

They had the pictures that made up the film and proceeded tro discuss them at some length. Harry immediately noted the misspelling of Josef but they thought it was for foreign consumption. Harry’s German isn’t so good and he couldn’t read most of the text so they did the pics and clips and noted some anomalies like pics from Europe mixed in towards the end.

I went to the tube and got the video, part 2 below, and also found the guy had the 4 minute part 1 which is pretty un-special.

A tube commenter blasts it as fake due the countless misspellings which would have got the filmmaker shot, truth be told. Another commenter notes an internet site watermark on one of the pictures. The guys didn’t see it but neither did I.

Oh dear. So this is as fake as it gets but I thought I’d post it just for the nifty but sometimes blurry (on purpose?) historical imagery and Harry’s insights.

5:36 the picture has a watermark of some internet site… clearly a fake.


Except for the pictures of the caverns all the pictures of the building were not base 211, there pictures from Germany and elsewhere in Europe, one is of the stadium for the Nuremberg rallies another of a Huge flak Tower in Berlin and others were of tunnels on the Siegfried line, whoever put this together is doing a disservice to those of us who want to know the truth about what the Germans built down in Antarctica.


One inconsistency I noticed, “das flugboot” in 3:47 is not the same flugboot in 4:09 of the clip. And I’m pretty certain the building in the end are a mix of Albert Speer models and blueprints. Interestingly, the person “Günther Rittau” credited at the end of the first clip was a German camera man, I think he worked on the movie “Metropolis”.

V-2 Rocket Launch, 1943

The V-2 rocket was developed in Germany during WWII – its technical name was Aggregat 4 (A4), but the name used in general parlance was Vergeltungswaffe 2 (Retribution Weapon 2) or ‘vengeance weapon’ – as it was assigned to attack allied cities in retaliation for allied fire bombings perpetrated against heavily populated German cities.

Although it was the the world’s first long-range strategic missile, it was also a major technological breakthrough in the development of large rockets. Innovations included a rocket engine burning liquid oxygen and alcohol, pioneered use of turbo-pumps to pressure-feed the propellants into the rocket’s combustion chamber, a radio guidance system, and a gyroscopic system which corrected any course deviations.

After WWII, several V-2 rockets were appropriated by the US and the USSR and became the ultimate rocket teaching tool for both states and their individual space programs. On 24 October 1946, the first photo from space was taken from a V-2 launched by US scientists.

This is a clip from a video that was released by the Thylacine Awareness Group of Australia. It was filmed in 2008. It is thought to feature a Thylacine – an animal thought extinct. Neil Walters, the founder of the TAGA, believes that the animal in the film could either be a Thylacine or a sub-species. Walters explained, “It’s got an incredibly thick neck and it’s very stocky in its build. And it also has that very long, stiff tail that looks like an extension of the back bone essentially, it doesn’t really move, it certainly doesn’t sway side to side like a dog”. Foxes with mange are often misidentified by witnesses as Thylacine. The woman that filmed the video, however, claimed that this creature ambled in a way that was in no way like the way a fox would run.

This is one of the very few photographs that were taken of the Pink-Headed Duck. The above photo was taken by David Seth-Smith in 1926. This bird is not officially declared extinct but instead it is listed as critically endangered. The last time anyone saw a Pink-Headed Duck in the wild was in 1949 in its native habitat of India but they used to live in India, Myanmar and Bangladesh. There are stories of a flock of 50 of these ducks hiding in Myanmar but they have still not been scientifically documented. There are constant sightings of this species nevertheless and an expedition as recent as 2017 in search of it.

Lake Murray Monster of Papua New Guinea

The Lake Murray Monster of Papua New Guinea

Lake Murray is the largest lake in Papua New Guinea (PNG), covering an area of about 700 sq. miles (though it shrinks and expands dramatically with the dry and rainy seasons). The lake’s serpentine shoreline creates many mysterious inlets and remote swampy coves. About 5,000 indigenous peoples inhabit this lake region in western PNG. Tribal villages dot the many small islands and lake shoreline, sporting houses on stilts and featuring dugout canoes as the main means of transportation.

A cryptid known as “Murray” reportedly lives in the swamps on the edges of the lake. This creature has been described as resembling a theropod dinosaur. A national PNG newspaper presented the following report: “On December 11, 1999, villagers travelling in a canoe reported seeing the creature wading in shallow water near Boboa. The following day, a Seventh Day Adventist pastor [Joseph Yup] and a church elder say they saw the animal not far from the first sighting. The creature was described as having a body ‘as long as a dump truck’ and nearly two metres wide, with a long neck and a long slender tail. It was walking on two hind legs ‘as thick as coconut palm tree trunks’, and had two smaller forelegs. The head was similar in shape to a cow’s head, with large eyes and ‘sharp teeth as long as fingers.’ The skin was likened to that of a crocodile, and the creature had ‘largish triangular scoops on the back.’”

Bagwajiwinini - Pukwudgies


The Bagwajiwinini – also known as the “little people of Minnesota,” or as Pukwudgies – are small, humanoid creatures that are a part of Ojibwa legend. They are 2-3′ tall with green skin.

They have been described as dangerous to humans due to the possibility of abduction. A boy was allegedly kidnapped by the Bagwajiwinini on a hunting trip with his father – who found him trapped in the roots of a tree – and some believe that the 2007 disappearance and subsequent death of hiker Kory Kelly are related to the Bagwajiwinini.


I have heard tales of them in Pennsylvania, where they are reported to steal and throw apples at picnickers while staying hidden and also in Massachusetts.

I had not heard any warnings of danger associated with these creatures, before, though, so do beware.

The Huallepen is a strange, water-dwelling creature from Chilean mythology. It has the body of a sheep and the head of a calf, with short front legs, twisted feet, and the back end of a seal.

Huallepen live in shallow pools, roaming onto the land to mate with herd animals. This will typically result in deformed offspring. It is said that if a pregnant woman comes near a Huallepen, her child will be born with a muzzle and twisted legs.

The Lambton Worm is a snake-like dragon found in The River Wear in England in the UK. The Lambton Worm is described as a large snake-like dragon with a long snake-like body and a dragon-like head. The Lambton Worm was venomous and it was known to attack and devour livestock and it wrapped its body around the hills and its marks that it left can still be seen to this day. The Worm was eventually killed by John Lambton however when it was killed it released a curse that once the Lambton Worm was killed John Lambton had to kill the first living thing he saw in order to stop the curse from happening which was his son. However he could not kill his son so this curse was set and him and his descendants all died premature untimely deaths. There is a song about the Lambton Worm which is sung around England.

This is a photograph of Voirrey Irving and her dog Mona, the woman who was well known for talking to Gef the Mongoose. Voirrey was 12 when Gef began speaking in her farmhouse on Isle of Man in September of 1931. Many people believe that Voirrey was behind the whole thing, and she was using ventriloquism to make it seem like there was an unseen talking Mongoose on the property.

I first heard of Gef many moons ago when my friend Susan Swiatek gave a lecture about the mysteriously vcal critter to our mutual group at an International Fortean Organization conference. Sue’s a MUFON exec and cryptozoology is a hobby of hers. I thought it was a pretty cool tale but didn’t really think it was truly true… but, hey, you never know, you know? We do know that there are shapeshifters, so… yeah.




Gef the Talking Mongoose is a mongoose-like creature found on Isle of Man. Gef is described as a small mongoose-like creature with yellow fur, a bushy tail, and stripes. Sounds like a normal mongoose right?

Well yeah except for the fact that Gef could talk. Gef was first reported in the village of Dalby by the Irving family. Gef introduced himself as Gef the Mongoose who was born in New Delhi India in 1852. Gef told the Irvings that he was a clever mongoose and a ghost or a spirit in the form of a mongoose. Gef once said, “I am a freak. I have hands and I have feet, and if you saw me you’d faint, you’d be petrified, mummified, turned into stone or a pillar of salt!“

Gef lived with Irvings for sometime waking people up if they overslept and attacking any mice that he could get. Word got out and the people of the village were scared and excited some even said to have seen or heard Gef. A few psychics went to go visit the Irving’s house after they moved after the dad died since they believed the house was haunted and they didn’t find anything not even any sign of Gef. Skeptics believe that Gef was a puppet or a split-personality of the father but believers say he was a ghost or a poltergeist or a ghost or even a real talking mongoose.

Disappointed that Harry didn’t acknowledge his friend Abel Basti, an Argentinian journalist who lives in Bariloche and most definitely does boots on the ground investigations and is currently working on Adi’s long stays in Colombia.

But… be that as it may I love Harry… and his inimitable work. I would so love to go on one of his expeditions down there and be thrilled beyond imagining!

This interview is not exclusively Hitler and spends a lot of time on the situation in Europe and the world at large and has lots of good commentary on the state of things here now in America. This is great because Harry is a great guy and has a good mind and a good heart. He also spends a good amount of time explaining his history and how he started in on his current work, which is fascinating.j
