Operation Highjump, officially titled The United States Navy Antarctic Developments Program, 1946–1947, was a United States Navy operation organized by Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd, Jr., USN (Ret), Officer in Charge, Task Force 68, and led by Rear Admiral Richard H. Cruzen, USN, Commanding Officer, Task Force 68. Operation high jump commenced 26 August 1946 and ended in late February 1947.

Although Byrd was chosen to lead the mission for a rather specific reason, which I will later explain, he was quite qualified and a favorite amongst the American public–the perfect candidate of choice by U.S. Navy and Top Brass. Additionally to Byrd’s recruitment another man, Rear Admiral Richard Cruzen, was selected to head-up the task force. And make no mistake, this was an unusually bold move for the American military at the time as people, nations, and even world economies were still volatile from war’s aftermath.

So we have to ask the following questions:

Why would the U.S. military be seeking to expend so many resources at the risk of great collateral loss to explore such a harsh region of the Planet Earth as Antarctica?

What was the rush?

What did they know?

What we find is that a lot of the details regarding Operation Highjump have been carefully tucked away over the years. Wikipedia explains little about the mission officially titled The United States Navy Antarctic Developments Program, 1946-1947:

A United States Naval operation organized by Rear Admiral Richard E. Byrd Jr., USN (Ret), Officer in Charge, Task Force 68, and led by Rear Admiral Richard H. Cruzen, USN, Commanding Officer, Task Force 68. Operation Highjump commenced 26 August 1946 and ended in late February 1947. Task Force 68 included 4,700 men, 13 ships, and multiple aircraft. The primary mission of Operation Highjump was to establish the Antarctic research base Little America IV.

Highjump’s objectives, according to the U.S. Navy’s report on the operation were as follows:

  • Training personnel and testing equipment in frigid conditions;
  • Consolidating and extending United States sovereignty over the largest practicable area of the Antarctic continent (This was publicly denied as a goal even before the expedition ended);
  • Determining the feasibility of establishing, maintaining and utilizing bases in the Antarctic and investigating possible base sites;
  • Developing techniques for establishing, maintaining and utilizing air bases on ice, with particular attention to later applicability of such techniques to operations in interior Greenland, where conditions are comparable to those in the Antarctic;
  • Amplifying existing stores of knowledge of hydrographic, geographic, geological, meteorological and electro-magnetic propagation conditions in the area;
  • Supplementary objectives of the Nanook expedition. (The Nanook operation was a smaller equivalent conducted off eastern Greenland.)

Interestingly enough many of the actual mission details were shrouded by secrecy, hidden from the American public, which leads us to where we are now.

An excerpt from a report entitled The Antarctica Enigma reads:

Little other information was released to the media about the mission, although most journalists were suspicious of its true purpose given the huge amount of military hardware involved.

The US Navy also strongly emphasized that Operation Highjump was going to be a navy show; Admiral Ramsey’s preliminary orders of 26th August 1946 stated that,“The Chief of Naval Operations only will deal with other governmental agencies” and that “no diplomatic negotiations are required. No foreign observers will be accepted.”

Not exactly an invitation to scrutiny, even from other arms of the government.

Admiral Byrd, was a strategic choice as he was a national hero to the Americans. He had pioneered the technology that would be a foundation for modern polar exploration and investigation, had been repeatedly decorated and had undertaken many expeditions to Antarctica and was also the first man to fly over both poles.

However, the task force itself, remained strictly under the military command of Rear Admiral Richard Cruzen

Unfortunately, the ships central group entered the ice pack off the Ross Sea on 31st December 1946 and found conditions as bad as had been noted for over a century.

Cebreakers such as the USCGC Burton Island, a ship that had only recently been commissioned and was still undergoing sea trials off the Californian coast when Operation Highjump was launched, fought to cut a way through the ice to help the men land.

Richard Cruzen was one of a few men to have located at several ‘oases’ which were actually the real reason the expedition team was sent there in the first place, although at the time only those with a top-secret clearance would truly know the mission’s true objective.

An excerpt from the Daviess County Historical Society reads:

According to a Navy report, 1,000 miles of new coastline was discovered on exploratory trips by the Bear and Byrd’s sea plane. Commended by Secretary of the Navy Frank Knox for his “superior seamanship, ability, courage, determination, efficiency and good judgment in dangerous emergencies,” Cruzen was one of the 16 members of the 1939-41 expedition who received the Antarctic Expedition Medal, presented in November 1946.

On Dec. 2, 1946, Cruzen once more set sail for the Antarctic continent. This time, as Task Force Commander under Admiral Byrd of the Navy’s Antarctic Developments Project also known as “Operation Highjump” Cruzen led a force of 13 ships carrying some 4,000 men, including meteorologists, zoologists, physicists and experts from oceanography institutes into the adventure of a lifetime.

Besides looking for new scientific data, another purpose of the expedition was to train Navy personnel and to test standard Navy ships and other equipment in cold weather operations.

Cruzen navigated through an ice pack of several hundred miles before reaching Little America. Icebergs and unpredictable weather were formidable foes during the course of the expedition.

Among the discoveries made during the 1946-47 expedition was the sighting of two “oases,” one a region of ice-free lakes and land. More than 300,000 square miles of unpathed territory were charted on aerial mapping operations. Their observations proved that radical changes would have to be made on existing maps of the Antarctic.

Why would warm spots, with warm water exist in the Antarctic?

What does this mean?

The Hollow Earth Theory

Researchers such as Dr. Brooks Agnew and others have deeply considered the possibility that the earth itself could be hollow or egg-like.

Although this theory seems hard to comprehend because you have been told exactly opposite your entire life, in school, and so on.

Entertain this idea for a moment.

What if the earth was hollow?

Would that be possible?

Is there evidence to back this up?

The answer is yes!

Evidence shows that the earth rings like a bell after an earthquake for a period of up to about 60 minutes and that’s why some scientists and researchers say that this is due to the fact that the earth is hollow.

If the earth had a solid core, when and earthquake happened it would likely absorb all of the vibration and not resonate it. This is just one detail that should open your mind to the possibility that a hollow planet is a possibility.

Famous author and lecture, David Icke, explains in his book, Moon Matrix, exactly how the moon is likely hollow as well. While Icke has been received lately harshly with criticisms, an article points out how “Icke believes that the moon is an inter-dimensional, intensity portal for entities and energies from other dimensions. He believes that aliens use the moon as a home base for hijacking signals from the universe so that our bodily forms that are experiencing this virtual reality on Earth, can’t fully experience what our creator meant for it to be. These aliens are the same reptilian shape-shifters that Icke claims are responsible for much of suffering on our planet. Reptilians want to filter anything beyond our five senses so that it manipulates what kind of world we can experience.”

I myself have had the privilege of interviewing David Icke and other hollow earth experts, such as Rodney Cluff and Dr. Brooks Agnew, personally–pushing me further into accepting that this theory may be more than just a theory.

Virtually every culture and civilization across the planet, throughout time, has documented what appears to be the existence of a ‘hollow Earth.’

According to Dr. Brooks Agnew, who I have personally interviewed many times, ‘hollow earth is a very real possibility’.

Agnew has focused his studies to the North Pole region, as he and his team plan to one day locate a documented “polar depression” thus launching test overflights from a “nuclear-powered icebreaker.”

Brooks and his team plan a scientific expedition to the brim of the hollow earth, which proves to be unsuccessful at this time due to a lack of funding.

Brooks plans to use a “sun compass” and a “gyroscope” above the 60th parallel to get accurate measurements of the oceanic depression. If the rate of change begins to increase than likely the team would be entering the longed elusive “polar depression” which has been reported by ancient Viking explorers and modern-day seamen alike.

Moreover during an interview on Red Ice Radio, Agnew talked about the formation of planets, Sir Isaac Newton, and the difference between “thick” and “thin” crust physics, zero gravity and more. The episode is very interesting to say the least. Essentially what Agnew was talking about is what’s known as a rather large “Graviton”. You know, those rides at the county fair that spin real fast? They stick you to the wall then the floor lowers. Oh boy–I can smell the funnel cake and the cotton candy now!

      Where do oil, coal and gas come from? :wink:

      The 40,230ft-deep (12.2km)
      During the Cold War, the US and Soviets both created ambitious projects to drill deeper than ever before.

      • nikita

        Coal comes from fossilized organic matter,
        Gas & oil are generated abiotically deep within the earth (else how do you explain depleted 70′s Texas oil wells refilling?)
        ……That’s one viewpoint :grin: :grin: :grin:

        As to deep drilling, hardly scratched the surface really have we? Who knows “what lies beneath”

        • 2QIK4U

          Simply don’t believe it. Freemasons deliberately and wrongly invented the term”fossil fuel” so they could claim it as a limited Resource. Explain the discrepancy between hardly any dinosaur remains ever found compared to the trillions and trillions of Black sludge they refine from the ground ? It simply doesn’t add up

          • nikita

            :???: :???: You agree then I think?

    • Slimey

      I thought you were a health nut and not a dough nut? :lol:

      You just said everything is fake and now you are telling us this may be real?

      Who is going to pay for all this bull sheet and lies (fake stuff)?

      YOU! :lol:

      Oh, gibs me a doughnut! :???:

      • 2QIK4U

        The hole is a lie ! :lol:

        • Zeropointenergy

          The Moon is hollow and a Computer that is habited by thousands of e.t.s hybrids / that watch and report what they see and send all information to someone in the solar system :arrow: Fact ! IT IS ALL CONECTED !ANTARTICA !TO THE MOON!

    • Josie

      Epstein’s not dead!!!

      • Anonymous

        Neither is Michael Jackson! Or Elvis! :cool:

    • 2QIK4U

      Another suspicious aspect is America has never ever claimed or accepted the hard facts that they have lost every single war they’ve started so why would the navy and Air Farce claim they were beaten by UFOs ?

    • 2QIK4U

      Hollow Earth with the billions of Cave openings is more of a Fact than a Flat Earth. Not that I believe it’s a Ball either

      been in the oil business for over 50 years–my sons run everything now–the old oil guys always said there is unlimited oil–those old timers could say “drill here” and find oil most times–the new guys are really hit and miss even with all their tech—so we can assume there is a massive liquid center but not in any formal academic circle,no college edgeumacated dude would touch it—the unfrozen areas in the antarctica is volcanic warm water–not one old timer believed oil comes from fossilized organic material–oil picks up organic material as it flows in vast underground seas–the true origins of oil is unknown–i have been part of the largest one hole oil(on shore) find in the usa in a very vast area and some of the deepest drills ever–there is a huge amount of info that the geniuses of formal ed wont touch because they can’t prove-i miss all the “unedgeucated” old guys who barely made it out of high school who truly knew everything–our last 8 drills have produced nothing and high priced geologists said “drill here”…. 100 dollar oil not too far away,so many wells shut down but maybe not since we are headed into a major depression–you have debt your gone,into the ash heap of history–and Utooslow if the earth is flat why do the planes that fly out of LA fly north to the arctic circle to japan? why dont they just fly a straight line to japan? because the earth is round but i suspect your too dumb to understand that the straight line is the long way…..
