GERMAN SUBMARINES IN THE SOUTH ATLANTIC
The newspaper "France Soir" had the following account: "Almost 1-1/2 years AFTER cessation of hostilities in Europe, the Islandic [Icelandic?] Whaler, 'Juliana' was stopped by a large German U-boat. The Juliana was in the ANTARCTIC region around Malvinas [now Falkland] Islands when a German submarine surfaced and raised the German official naval Flag of Mourning -- red with a black edge.
The submarine commander sent out a boarding party, which approached the Juliana in a rubber dinghy, and having boarded the whaler demanded of Capt. Hekla part of his fresh food stocks. The request was made in the definite tone of an order to which resistance would have been unwise. The German officer spoke a correct English and paid for his provisions in U.S. dollars, giving the Captain a bonus of $10 for each member of the Juliana crew. Whilst the food stuffs were being transferred to the submarine, the submarine commander informed Capt. Hekla of the exact location of a large school of whales. Later the Juliana found the school of whales where designated."
The French "Agence France Press" on 25 September 1946, said: "The continuous rumors about German U-boat activity in the region of Tierra del Fuego [Feuerland, in German], between the southernmost tip OF LATIN AMERICA AND THE CONTINENT OF ANTARCTICA are based on true happenings." There have been stories and books written about Germans counterfeiting U.S. currency and otherwise obtaining American money printing plates, which may account for the German use of American money. The Guinness Book of World Records says that the "greatest unsolved robbery" was the disappearance of the entire German treasury at the end of the war.
In January 1946 industrialist Donald Douglas approached the Army Air Force with a plan for government and industry to work together on long range strategic planning. This was called Project RAND, a name coined by Arthur Raymond from Research ANd Development. Much of their first government money went to the von Braun team. [McDougall, Walter al. ..."the Heavens and the Earth, A Political History of the Space Age," Basic Books, New York, 1985, p. 89.]... (Note: RAND Corp. was also involved in expanding some of the upper levels of the Dulce, New Mexico underground biogenetics research facility, according to Thomas Castello. - Branton)
GERMAN FLYING DISCS
Hitler's advanced technology included intercontinental ballistic missiles, vertical takeoff aircraft, jet engines, cruise missiles, sound cannons, and many other advanced items. The Allies captured plans for what became the Boeing 747 Jumbo jet. Among the most secret items captured were plans for flying disks, that were at first called "Krautmeteors." Based on the evidence, they were built as early as around 1933 and went into mass production in 1940. Scientists involved in these projects were Bellonzo, Schriever, Miethe and Victor Schauberger. Schauberger developed the "flying hat" type disc that was later seen over the United States. The final version was the Bellonzo-Schriever-Miethe Diskus, as large as 135 feet and some up to 225 feet in diameter. They traveled over 2,000 km/hr and were planned to go over 4,000 km/hr. In 1945 they could reach a speed of 1,300 mph and an altitude of 40,000 feet in less than three minutes. The Germans developed the Delta wing craft, and were working on stealth technology, etc.
Many pilots saw the strange craft over Germany. However, as soon as a craft was built, Hitler ordered it disassembled and shipped somewhere -- probably Antarctica. None of the craft were captured by the Allies, although some of the scientists were captured and then mostly disappeared, but can somewhat be traced to Bell Textron and to places such as Area 51, which, surprise!, is infamous for its 'UFO' sightings. Here are some examples of news items during WW II concerning Germany's UFOs, from the "New York Times:
"NEW YORK TIMES," December 14, 1944: "Floating Mystery Ball Is New German Weapon. SUPREME HEADQUARTERS, Allied Expeditionary Force, Dec. 13 -- A new German weapon has made its appearance on the western air front, it was disclosed today. "Airmen of the American Air Force report that they are encountering silver colored spheres in the air over German territory. The spheres are encountered either singly or in clusters. Sometimes they are semi-translucent." ...and,
"SUPREME HEADQUARTERS Dec. 13 [Reuters] -- The Germans have produced a 'secret' weapon in keeping with the Christmas season. "The new device, apparently an air defense weapon, resembles the huge glass balls that adorn Christmas trees. There was no information available as to what holds them up like stars in the sky, what is in them or what their purpose is supposed to be."
(Note: In regards to the above, Bulgarian Physicist Vladimir Terziski wrote the following about the Nazi mystery 'spheres' and aerial disc projects: "...According to Renato Vesco... Germany was sharing a great deal of the advances in weaponry with their allies the ITALIANS during the war. At the Fiat experimental facility at lake La Garda, a facility that fittingly bore the name of air martial Hermann Goering, the Italians were experimenting with numerous advanced weapons, rockets and airplanes, created in Germany. In a similar fashion, the Germans kept a close contact with the Japanese military establishment and were supplying it with many advanced weapons. I have discovered for example a photo of a copy of the manned version of the V-1 -- the Reichenberg -- produced in Japan by Mitsubishi. The best fighter in the world, the push-pull twin propeller Domier-335 was duplicated at the Kawashima works. Or a photo of Japanese high ranking Imperial navy officers inspecting the latest German radar station. A Japanese friend of mine in Los Angeles related to me the story of his friend's father, who worked as technician in an aircraft research bureau in Japan during the war. In July of 1945, two and a half months after the war ended in Germany, a huge German transport submarine brought to Japan the latest of German inventions -- two spherical wingless flying devices. The Japanese R&D team put the machines together, following the German instructions, and... there was something very bizarre and other-earthy standing in front of them -- a ball shaped flying device without wings or propellers, that nobody knew how it flied. The fuel was added, the start button of this unmanned machine was pressed and it .... disappeared with a roar and flames without [into] the sky. The team never saw it again. The engineers were so frightened by the unexpected might of the machine, that they promptly dynamited the second prototype and choose to forget the whole incident." - Branton)
FALKLAND ISLANDS WAR
The Falkland Islands War had more to do with NAZI'S [Antarctica] than with Argentina...
The Germans, FROM THEIR ANTARCTIC BASE, began to INFILTRATE into Argentina, Chile, etc., and bought large tracts of land and swept up corporations. They also invested in corporations in Germany and elsewhere, with plans to make a comeback. They used the German treasury, captured treasure from other nations, and counterfeit American currency printed on real U.S. currency printing plates given to the Russians and captured by the Germans.
(Note: It appears as if the German elite had begun to attempt to accomplish via stealth what they failed to do by force in World Wars I and II -- by infiltrating North and South America and engaging in economic warfare from their extensive underground 'black budget' empire below Antarctica and also South and North America, with the help of their allies in the CIA/NSA. We are not talking Billions of dollars here, but TRILLIONS of dollars which have been siphoned from the U.S. economy via numerous ingenious methods, and used to 'feed' the Bavarian-backed underground network which stretches throughout North America and which are inhabited by European, American and Antarctican National Socialists. The wealth that has been siphoned from the American economy could otherwise have been used to prime the economy to new heights of prosperity, and that prosperity would have in turn overflowed into the other nations of the world. Apparently the Nazis realized this, and also realized that the 'Banksters' who had backed them during World War II had the REAL power. They understood that ECONOMIC power ultimately dictated political power, even in a supposedly 'democratic' country where they could 'buy off' political power from those who were more interested in immediate physical comforts and economic status rather then the long-term fate of their own country. The 'Nazis' could not have done what they have done without the help of the 'traitors' within. The same could be said for the Greys also... not to mention the CIA/Nazi/Grey collaboration itself existent within various underground bases: Neu Schwabia, Antarctica; Pine Gap, Australia; Alsace-Lorraine Mts., Germany; Montauk, Long Island; the Denver International Airport; Dulce, New Mexico; Area 51, Nevada, etc. - Branton)
Some plates were stolen by Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury Harry Dexter White [real name Weiss] under Henry Morgenthau and sent to the Soviets for use in occupied Germany. He also arranged for the mass theft of tons of our special money-paper. When J. Edgar Hoover went to President Truman with all the evidence that the Assistant Secretary of the Treasury was a Communist spy and thief, TRUMAN of course removed Weiss [White] from his job -- and PROMOTED HIM to head of the International Monetary Fund. I kid you not, look it up. (This tells you whose side Truman was really on. - Branton) The story has a rather common ending -- when a controversy developed in the press concerning this incident, Weiss became a "suicide."
GERMAN ECONOMIC "MIRACLE"
For more information on how the "economic miracle" was accomplished after the war by the Germans, you can read such books as "Martin Bormann, Nazi in Exile" by Paul Manning [ "...Bormann became the guiding force in the 'economic miracle' that led to the rebirth of German industry and finance in the thirty-five years following political and military defeat. In the waning months of World War II, as the Third Reich was tottering and finally crumbling in defeat, Bormann set up 750 CORPORATIONS scattered among those nations that had remained neutral. Those corporations received the fleeing wealth of Germany and became the power base that enabled Germany to climb back to economic and political strength." From flyleaf ]. This book expands on the meeting in Strasbourg on August 10, 1944, mentioned in Michael Bar-Zohar's book "The Avengers."
In 1986, while researching these subjects, we received 161 pages under a Freedom of Information search concerning what happened to the German treasury at the end of WW II. Many of these documents had been SECRET until declassification to fulfill our request. One document was No. 19,489, November 27, 1944, Subject: Transmitting Intelligence Report No. EW-Pa 198 [?, barely readable] by G-2 Economic Section, the Secretary of State, from Lt. Col. John W. Easton, Economic Warfare Division.
The cover letter stated "I have the honor to enclose Intelligence Report No. EW-Pa 198 by G-2 Economic Section, SHAEF ["Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Forces"], dated November 7, 1944, describing the plans of German industrialists for the post-war resurrection of Germany. Among the topics dealt with in this report are: patents, financial reserves, exportation of capital, and the strategic placing of technical personnel." It is obvious that Manning quoted from these documents in his book on Bormann.
In describing the meeting of August 10,1944, in Stasbourg, some sentences in the documents stand out: "German industrialists must, it was said, through their exports increase the strength of Germany. They must also prepare themselves TO FINANCE THE NAZI PARTY which would be forced to GO UNDERGROUND as Maquis [in Gebirgverteidigungsstellengehen]. From now on the government would allocate large sums to industrialists so that each could establish a secure post-war foundation in foreign countries. Existing financial reserves in foreign countries must be placed at the disposal of the Party so that a strong German Empire can be created AFTER the defeat. It is also immediately required that the large factories in Germany create small technical offices or research bureaus which would be absolutely independent and have no known connection with the factory. These bureaus will receive plans and drawings of 'new weapons' as well as documents which they need to continue their research and which must not be allowed to fall into the hands of the enemy" [author emphasis].
The last sentences in this document are, "After the defeat of Germany the Nazi Party recognizes that certain of its best known leaders will be condemned as war criminals. However, in cooperation with the industrialists it is arranging to place its less conspicuous but most important members in positions with various German factories as technical experts or members of its research and designing offices."
Some of the documents were concerning "Looted Gold" [1945-1948]. (Note: A massive shipment of gold which disappeared from an Allied train which was dynamited in a rail tunnel, was later used to finance such Thule Society backed projects as the Montauk or Phoenix Experiments, as a means to counter the Navy's own Philadelphia or Rainbow experiments. The CIA itself delivered over into the hands of the Thulist 'Nazis' much of the Philadelphia experiment's research and technology. - Branton) Accession Number 56-75-101, Agency Container Number 169, File Number BIS/2/00." These documents concern Germany's 'looted' gold being transferred to the 'Bank for International Settlements' in Switzerland. One important paragraph (#9) says: "It is clear both from correspondence and from testimony that the management of the B.I.S. during the war was 'in the hands of the Administration Council, in which the AXIS representatives have an authoritative influence' and that in 1942 the Germans favored the reelection of President McKittrick whose 'personal opinions' they characterized as 'safely known'."
(It has been claimed by some researchers that the 7 most powerful Bankers in the world -- who collectively control over 80 percent of all global financial transactions and over 60 percent of all global trade -- have in the past met regularly at the Bank of International Settlements or 'B.I.S.' office in the fitley named 'Tower of Basel' in Basel, Switzerland. - Branton)
Enclosed in the file is a clipping from the "New York Times," date not included but appears to be in 1945, that states: "McKITTRICK SLATED FOR POST AT CHASE. He Will Take Over Duties as Vice President of Bank Here Next Autumn. Thomas H. McKittrick, American banker who has served as president of the Bank for International Settlements [B.I.S.] since the beginning of 1940, will become a vice president of the [Rockefeller's] Chase National Bank of New York next fall, Winthrop W. Aldrich, chairman of the board of Chase, announced yesterday." The article ends by quoting McKittrick: "I realize it is my duty to perform a neutral task in wartime. It is an extremely difficult and trying thing to do, but I'll do the best I can."
Another formerly Top Secret document declassified was "Subject: Conversation in Switzerland with Mr. McKittrick, President of the Bank for International Settlements" from Orvis A. Schmidt to Secretary of the Treasury Morgenthau, dated March 23, 1945. It describes McKittrick's dealings with the real head of the Nazi banking system, a Vice President named Puhl. "Puhl was described by McKittrick as a career banker who had been with the Reichsbank for some twenty years, who does not share the Nazi point of view... the Swiss National Bank said that in order to be sure they were not obtaining looted gold they had requested a member of the Reichsbank, whom they regarded to be trustworthy, to certify that each parcel of gold which they purchased had not been looted. The person who had done this certifying was Puhl." Puhl was Reichsbank Senior Vice President Emil Johann Rudolf Puhl. He was in charge of taking booty into the bank and was in charge of it for the Nazis. His Senior Shipping Clerk Albert Thoms said that they needed up to thirty men to help him sort and repack the valuables, which consisted of "millions in gold marks, pounds sterling, dollars and Swiss francs, 3,500 ounces of platinum, over 550,000 ounces of gold, and 4,638 carats in diamonds and other precious stones, as well as hundreds of pieces of works of art" [p. 226, "Aftermath," Ladislas Farago, Avon, 1974].
This material was shipped out of the country in Operation Fireland or Aktion Feuerland in German, which Farago explained in a footnote in his book on Bormann: "The transaction was named 'Land of Fire' after the archipelago of Tierra del Fuego at the southern extremity of Argentina and Chile, THE AREA TO WHICH SOME OF THE SHIPMENTS WERE ORIGINALLY CONSIGNED." [p. 228]. On the next page Farago said: "Only a relatively small portion of the SS treasure was impounded by Bormann and sent overseas in the course of Aktion Feuerland. Much of it is still missing."
Germany had developed self-sufficiency before the end of the war, and was manufacturing their own oil, produced 'butter' from coal, invented powdered milk, developed freeze drying, learned to store flour indefinitely, were growing their food in greenhouses on chemical 'soil,' etc. These projects were also necessary for survival of the secret 'UFO' force, which Hitler called the "Last Battalion," at the Antarctic. The counterfeiting of British and American money was under Operation Bernhard. The fake British notes have been often discussed in books and articles about Bernhard, but the fake American currency is not as well known. Recently the U.S. announced that it was issuing new money to counteract the counterfeit, which was said to be coming from Saddam Hussein and Lebanon.
It would be more correct to say it is coming from South America, but that money is supposed to all be drug money. Life gets complicated. When 'CONTACT' newspaper first ran the series on "Fire From The Sky," it followed with a reprint of the information about the truth about the Falkland Islands War. In that series, it revealed that the Russians, working with Rockefeller forces, defeated the British Bolshevik forces on South Georgia Island. If you have not read that series, this information may not make sense to you. It is important to know that information, if you intend to try to understand what is happening.
NAZI forces were involved in the Falkland Islands War, on the side of the Russians. This is hard to believe if you have no idea of what IS. The Russians were NATIONALISTS, as opposed to [the] Bolsheviks who took their country away from them.
The [so-called] Bolsheviks were trained in the lower East Side of New York City and financed by New York and London bankers. (Over 200 were trained to operate as the first Politburo and taught the Communist 'philosophy' IN New York by the Rockefellers. - Branton) They invaded Russia, killed the Tzar and many Nationalists and took over the government.
Can you begin to see how someone like Boris Pash, with a Russian Nationalist family background, could work with Nazi Gestapo and SS agents?
In 1982, on April 20, Hitler's birthday, the Russian/Rockefeller/Nazi commando force broke through and inserted a neutron bomb into the underground naval base at South Georgia Island. (As suggested earlier, the Rockefellers had originally backed the BOLSHEVIKS and the Nazis. Later they began backing the Russian NATIONALISTS and the Nazis after the Bolsheviks were kicked out of Russia and wormed their way into the Pentagon, from where they planned a global nuclear holocaust which they would ride out in their underground bunkers. THIS is where the Rockefellers and Bolsheviks came into disagreement, as the Rockefellers resisted the apocalyptic plans of the ousted Bolsheviks because they were not financially 'profitable'. A Nuclear war would most likely result in a global economic collapse as well, something that the Rockefellers did not want. It would seem that the Rockefellers are opportunists. Now that the Russian nationalists had once again gained control of Russia, the Rockefeller-Nazi alliance embraced their nationalist 'brothers' who held the POWER. If only the Nationalists KNEW who 'created' their Bolshevik enemies in the first place. The Rockefeller corporate empire is a chameleon, changing its colors to fit the current circumstances. - Branton)
Alexander Haig was the General representing the Rockefellers. In his book 'Caveat,' the chapter on the Falklands starts: "On March 28, 1982, a Sunday, the British Ambassador, Nicholas ['Niko'] Henderson, brought me a letter from Lord Carrington. A party of Argentineans (Argentina -- where the Nazi's had a major presence in addition to Antarctica. - Branton), wrote the foreign secretary, had landed nine days earlier on the island of South Georgia, a British [Navy] possession lying in the South Atlantic a few degrees above the ANTARCTIC Circle and some 600 miles to the east of the Falkland Islands, a British Crown colony." I'll bet you thought the Falkland Islands War was about the Falkland Islands!
Much ado was made in the media about the conflict between Jeane Kirkpatrick and Alexander Haig. Kirkpatrick is a Zionist and was the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. She has a regular feature column in "The Jewish Press" newspaper, "The Largest Independent Anglo-Jewish Weekly Newspaper." Haig has had a long relationship with Henry Kissinger, to whom Haig became senior military advisor in 1969. Remember that Kissinger came out of the [pro-Nazi] PAPERCLIP Operation personnel.
In January 1982, Reagan replaced his national security advisor, Richard Allen, with William P. Clark, another PAPERCLIP person, and who was Haig's deputy. Nixon said, "When you see the lights burning late in Henry's [Kissinger] office, it's usually Al Haig." ["War In The Falklands, the Full Story" by the "Sunday Times" of London Insight Team, Harper & Row, New York, 1982, p. 123.]
If you doubt the fact that the Nazis never gave up and that they planned to continue the war after their defeat in Germany, and planned to make a come-back to finally achieve their goal, then perhaps you should read the following books:

There are more, these just happen to be the ones in my personal library. I read them, mostly about 20 or 30 years ago. I do not mean to give the impression that Germany is the source of the world's problems; Germany has simply been a part of a much bigger picture...
More information on the Nazi Antarctic efforts and their attempts to impose a global dictatorship comes from Bulgarian physicist Vladimir Terziski. The following interview between Talk Show host Sam Russell and Terziski took place between 8-10 P.M., June 5th, 1993 on Sam Russell's 'OPEN MIND FORUM' program, KTKK [K-TALK] Radio in Salt Lake City, Utah. We will quote only those portions of the extensive conversation which tie-in directly with the subject at hand (Note: Some of the spellings of the names mentioned in the interview were transcribed phonetically from the tape. Actual spellings of these names which are identified as such may be different than they appear in the transcript, due perhaps in part to Mr. Terziski's Bulgarian accent):
SAM RUSSELL - ...I guess a place to start here, the Germans during World War II evidently had what was called the 'Foo Fighter', and this I guess is the name that the allied pilots gave to this curious-looking thing that would bob and weave and run around through the squadrons as they were flying over Germany to bomb and so on.
VLADIMIR TERZISKI - Exactly, the Foo Fighter, the 'fiery' ball. 'Foo' is 'fire' in French, it's also wind in Japanese... By the way Renato Vesco, who was the Italian [counterpart of] Wernher von Braun, the research scientist in charge of the ITALIAN Air Force and Space Research and Development program during the war, in his highly suppressed book in this country -- which is also available through our Academy -- 'INTERCEPT BUT DON'T SHOOT', talks about the whole family of turbojet saucers that were built by the Germans, all the way up to the Foo Fighter, the KUGELBLITZ and the FEUERBALL, two different models of basically the same device. And he also mentions a lot of ATTACKS of these machines on enemy bomber formations with DEVASTATING results for the bombers. Some of the Foo Fighters were doing 2900 kilometers an hour and up... a bomber would do maybe 300, 400, 500 at the most... so we're talking about 6, 7, 8 times the bomber speed. The most interesting thing that has not come up into, let's say, the work of Renato Vesco [because he talks only about the turbo-jet family of saucers... basically very simple saucers made with piston engines with propellers, spinning the lenticular airframe, the lens-shaped air frame of the craft thus creating gyroscopic antigravity -- and some of them were hybrids between helicopters with spinning rotor, basically aerodynamic lift and the gyroscopic lift of the spinning heavy mass of rotary engines. I wouldn't be amazed [if] the rotary engine itself were created to power a gyroscopically spinning saucer that had a big helicopter propeller on top, so it's kind of a hybrid between a helicopter and a saucer]... I even discovered...extremely rare drawings by the genius of German aviation, Lipish, the guy who built the first supersonic glider in the '30s and it is not Chuck Yeager who broke the sound barrier, but probably the Germans 10 years earlier with their... supersonic gliders that Lipish built. Anyway, Lipish was designing at the end of the war a supersonic ram-jet propulsion craft with anti-gravity assists. They had the fuel tanks spinning inside the jets...going through the engine part of the object to the engine duct, spinning the fuel around thus creating additional anti-gravity lift and greatly improving the lift capabilities and the inertial responses of the craft. So to sum it up in a nutshell, I have...several very brilliant videos with dozens of photographs and engineering drawings, sketches and so on. The Germans had PROBABLY 50 MODELS of flying saucers powered by every existing engine in their arsenal... piston engines with propellers, rotary...engines with propellers, inboard and outboard turbo-jets, pulse (?) jets, ram-jets and rocket engines. The rocket-engined craft... could go into orbit, the bigger models could go to the moon and back with literally a truckload of kerosene and oxygen. On top of the saucer space flights the Germans had [an] extensive space program with rocketry. I discovered just several days ago the man-made winged version of the V-2 rocket... was doing sub-orbital flights with an altitude higher than the altitude of the Mercury, the Vostock, space capsules. They had space programs with their Zanger-Brent stratospheric ram-jet...bomber... antipodal, basically circling three quarters of the globe trajectory... That was the grandfather of the Aurora craft that is rumored so much these days in Area 51. (Take note that both the American and Russian space programs depended on the German scientists they had both acquired following World War II. It is possible that these researchers were intentionally made-out to be the 'cream' of German aerospace science, when in fact the most intelligent scientists may have found their way to the Antarctic base following World War II - Branton). The aircraft industries of the Allies after the war had a difficult time duplicating and regurgitating the German designs that the Germans came up with...
S.R. - Wow! That's amazing...
V.T. - Many of these things have not been duplicated yet, but the most astonishing photographs came -- and I have copies of these and they are available -- from the GERMAN SECRET SOCIETY 'Tuligezelshaft' and the 'Templehofgezelshaft', the German branch of the KNIGHTS TEMPLARS which are also the INTERNATIONAL BANKERS so they have absolutely no problems financing these projects. Few of the (--indistinguishable-- lower-ranking German scientists...? - Branton) even knew that these projects were running. Many of them privately had been complaining that they were the dumbest fools because all the smart guys disappeared after the war into the German South Polar underground colony, and only basically the intelligent weaklings [remained in Germany]... We made a brilliant audio-tape, by the way all of these things that we will be talking about are available in two dozen very good video tapes and about as many audio tapes.
S.R. - We will have to be sure and tell the folks how they can find out how to get a hold of those, O.K.?
V.T. - It's very simple, they can call us here in Los Angeles at area code -473-9717...
S.R. - ...I'd like to ask a question about your knowledge of the Russian technologies. It is said that the Russians are really a lot farther ahead than we are...
V.T. - Not at all...
S.R. - Technologically.
V.T. - My feeling is that not only the French Revolution and the Paris Commune and the Communism of Marx and Engels was financed and masterminded and orchestrated by the [Bavarian] Illuminati, but so was the Bolshevik Revolution, the Nazi uprising in Italy, or the National Socialist and Nazi movement in Germany. And along that line, Wall Street has secretly been going to painstaking efforts to help behind-the-scenes the Russians in order for them to become a real strong external enemy and not to be just a 'paper bear', a flimsy paper bear. I have numerous accounts of how the Germans built all the munitions plants, 14 out of 15 munitions plants BEFORE the war started, the Second World War started. They were all built by Germans... Rolls Royce built the turbo-jet factory for the MIG fighter plane engines, just in time for the beginning of the Korean war. I have a photograph in my possession of the best (at the time? - Branton) American strategic bomber, the B-29, the one that dropped the bomb over Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Under it's wing there is hanging the best German twin-engine rocket interceptor, supersonic swept-wing rocket interceptor the DFS-346, and all of this under the red star markings of the Russian Air Force. How can somebody claim that there is not a secret siphoning of the most advanced technology behind-the-scenes... of the Cold War in order to make Russia the real enemy. I've heard rumors that the Russians were given enriched uranium to build their first nuclear bomb, and when they couldn't do even that they were given a whole nuclear bomb that was smuggled out in the luggage of the Russian ambassador straight on a flight from Washington to Moscow according to the words of Victor Suvaro, the genius of the Russian Intelligence novels. And basically those are documentary books that he has written. The best of them is 'AQUARIUM', for any one of our listeners who would like to acquaint himself with the workings of a secret society. Later on the Russians were sold a nuclear submarine in order to make their sagging strategic fleet a more real, threatening menace. Why would the [Bavarian] Illuminati need a strong enemy in the Russias? Very simple, because otherwise they cannot keep the secrecy around these giant underground projects going on. Now the best reason they use is 'Oh well, we cannot tell you about that, we cannot discuss this even in Congress because the Russians would know.' It was cleverly used on both sides of the 'curtain' in order for the [Bavarian] secret societies in both Russia and the United States to quietly engage in -- and justify the massive financing of -- these projects. Back to the Germans, the most interesting claim that they are [making] in another documentary film... available from us, is that they landed on Mars in mid-January 1946 after 8 months of heavy flight with a basically volunteer suicide crew of Germans and Japanese in a giant 230 foot diameter dreadnaught... again running on free energy, basically the Hanz-Kohler converters of gravity energy into electromagnetic energy of the flight. Another interesting thing that I found is a whole range of mind control experiments in Germany that were repeated verbatim by the super powers after the war. Mind control with ultrasound, when they were inducing and indoctrinating their crack S.S. troops, mind control with all kinds of synthetic hallucinogenic drugs, or all kinds of the 'proper' mushrooms, mind control that was developed using the Wilhelm Reichian technology. In the initial states this [involved] types of sodomic mind control that was practiced by certain of the Ahrimanic and Luciferian orders of Tibetan monks that were visited by these numerous German ethnographic expeditions in the '20s and '30s, and all of this secret knowledge was later brought to Germany. We produce a fascinating tape here with Al Bielek and T. Johnson from Las Vegas on the magical-occult connections of the Third Reich, and we called the tape 'OCCULT NATIONAL SHAMANISM' in analogy to 'National Socialism', a fascinating tape that basically brings together about a dozen extremely rare books on the occult connections of the Third Reich, the dabblings with satanism, with witchcraft, with all kinds of unspeakable aberrations, including sexual aberrations... the Germans were in contact with half a dozen [malevolent] alien races in these big underground establishments, some of these underground bases were 2 kilometers long, one kilometer wide. I have found the drawings of the tunnel systems with these bases from incredible places including...the American Bombing Survey reports of underground -- huge industrial establishments under the German mountains... the bottom line is that by the time the war ended the Germans were VERY HEAVILY doing all these major parts of the ILLUMINATI secret technologies on the planet...
(Were the Nazi's the Military Research & Development arm of the Bavarian Illuminati? - Branton)
Mind Control technologies, a whole dozen of mind-control... I mean we have a tape here on mind control that was going on in the German bases. But the most important thing about their research was GENETIC ENGINEERING... Quite a well-known movie producer in southern California that produced one of the best known UFO documentaries that won a big award has mentioned to me in a private conversation that while researching for that film he saw in a military-government archive a documentary, a silent documentary film about horrific genetic experiments on live human beings, I mean cutting off heads, dismembering, re-assembling, human bodies from parts -- all these frankensteinian experiments in the German genetic program... and finally the film culminated with footage of living, walking, breathing HYBRIDS between HUMANS and ANIMALS that were produced in German concentration camps half a century earlier. The Reife [spl?] microscope, the Royal Reife microscope which is rumored to be a Tesla scalar-wave microscope that has an extremely...high resolution power and can see many levels of complexity beyond the hierarchical level of the cell, was probably the magical key to the human genome kingdom, the microscope was discovered in the '20s in Berlin and probably gave the key to the Germans to the human genome. The big 10 billion dollar human genome project that is right now beginning to drain budget dollars run through the Dept. of Energy here, is nothing but a smokescreen for the REAL mastery of the human genome half a century earlier by the Illuminati that are running computerized designs of clones and human beings and all that stuff in the underground labs.
(Note: Bavarian cultists and Grey aliens are reportedly working together in the production of so-called 'hybrids' within the underground joint-operational facilities. Most of the hu-brids [human-hybrids] who are born with imputed reptilian DNA or DNA from other animals are the unwilling servants of the draconian collectivists from birth. Some of these 'people' have escaped from the domination of the Collective and have joined with more friendly 'Federation' forces, or have been rescued by the same from captured bases or ships, according to contactee Alex Collier, and others. - Branton)
S.R. - Hmm.
V.T. - I take very seriously films, not only films like 'BOYS FROM BRAZIL' about the secret experiments in 'education' of abducted children... the [secret] government has been the biggest consumer of abducted children in this country, and I called just on a hunch this Milk Carton 1-800 number, chasing a rumor that 400,000 CHILDREN were missing from this country each year, [close to] half a million each year. I thought 'Nah, maybe 20, 30 thousand, it's not possible.' And the lady there said... 'No, we don't have ANY statistics.' 'Well, any newspaper articles, anything?' 'No, no, we DON'T have anything.' And I was beginning to get more and more suspicious. Finally she made an 'educated' guess, having worked for 5 years in the system. She said, 'About maybe 200,000 children a year or so.' Within only 5 minutes...research I did, I got half of the wildest rumor that I've heard of, half a million missing every year. Most of them disappear in the underground...of the New World Order...
S.R. - Vladimir Terziski. He is a UFO researcher. He is a co-founder with Al Bielek of the 'American Academy of Dissident Scientists'. [Sam Russell takes a call at this point. The question is in regards to Vladimir's professional background]
V.T. - Well, I studied Physics and Engineering at Tokai University in Tokyo, I have a Bachelor Degree in Physics, and a Master Degree in Electronics Engineering. I worked for four years at the Solar Energy Research Institute for the Bulgarian Academy of Science before immigrating to the United States. I studied for 3 and a half, 4 years, Sociology at Arizona State University, and at UCLA, and I'm slowly dragging this additional Degree of mine to a completion these days...
S.R. - ...Well, O.K., let us move along and pick up on what you were talking about as we broke right there. This having to do with the genetic cloning and so on.
V.T. - I have two more items, basically very important items to finish and then we can go into the general discussions. To cap off the whole genetic research effort on the planet, it is not an idea of a few crazy frankensteinian scientists here and there in the secret underground bases, it is not a crazy idea by the secret government or even by some high levels of alien races that are using us as convenient guinea pigs... It is a much higher level of 'party line' agenda coming, my feeling is, from the... basically the fallen angelic presence on our planet that has been masterminding [the conspiracy]... probably 90% of the alien races that have visited our planet...most of them have been coming here on the planet sub-contracting for that particular branch of the 'celestial management' and the biggest point on their agenda is... on top of advanced interstellar TRANSPORTATION and COMMUNICATION have been -- the creation of life (or rather the RE-CREATION or re-arrangement of existing biological matter, since created beings whether standing or fallen can only RE-STRUCTURE that what has already been created. - Branton), and MIND CONTROL of course. [These] have been the four extremely important points, the highest points on their agenda. So the 'creation' of all of these frankensteinian monsters is not an aberration of a sick mind or probably a latent satanist movie producer. It is not a whim by some Financier that is financing these projects... it is really an incredible saga on a Universal or Galactic level... these hierarchies that are trying to outdo and outbid each other and trying to prove to probably higher levels of celestial overseeing bodies that they can do a better management and a better 'creation' of this and that including living beings. So I put the whole creation of artificial life from the crude mechanical robots created by the Illuminatial chemists [alchemists] in the medieval centuries to the frankensteinian conglomeration of human beings from...body parts in the late 19th century, and the first creation of primitive clones in the early 20th century through the limited experiments of hybridization between humans and animals that were going [on] in German concentration camps during the war. And... the biggest effort that was in front of the German hierarchy was the creation of the 'Master Race', the 'super men'. And what they did on a small scale in the concentration camps, later on in the late '40s and early '50s they did on A TEN TIMES BIGGER SCALE IN THEIR SOUTH POLAR COLONY. The rumor is that these days there is a city called the NEW BERLIN, a big underground city under the South Pole, south of South Africa in the Queen Maud land... under the GERMAN jurisdiction, under the German nomenclature. A 2,000,000 strong colony that engages primarily in space travel and human genetic engineering. And basically, a very careful analysis of the German technology -- and I repeat I am not a religious freak, I entered into conspiracy theories only because of necessity, to figure out the anti-gravity stuff that I was interested in. I'm primarily a physicist and an engineer, and I'm fascinated a lot more by an explanation of the physics of the local universe or of the energy management system in our Grand Universe than of, should we say, standing or fallen angelic management structures around our planet -- but tracing the technologies, I have come to piece the big puzzle, this big galactic and universal puzzle together...
S.R. - ...We are just virtually out of time. Vladimir, we've had some questions off the air regarding what you might have available to send people in the written format or in electronic.
V.T. - I have a video list of probably 50 publications, videos, audios, booklets, articles and so on. Anyone who is interested can give us a call at area code  473-9717. And I will be soon in one of the bookstores in Salt Lake City, I actually sent a lot of material that was exhibited at the Preparedness [Expo] Show.
S.R. - We have to leave it there, Vladimir I appreciate very much your coming on, I know the notice was very short and I appreciate it. It's been a fascinating hour for me, I hope for our listeners as well, and I'll hope to do it again some time.
V.T. - Sam, with the greatest of pleasure. I repeat again, this was only a 'little revelation' of the working of the dark side... one should not be pessimistic, on the contrary just by shining the light on these ugly deeds of the Illuminati, that's all there needs to be done in order for them to start melting like an old snow under the hot summer rays...
S.R. - Thank you very much Vladimir, a terrific way to end it... (Note: Vladimir Terziski is "...a Bulgarian born engineer and physicist, graduated Cum Laude from the Master of Science program of Tokai University in Tokyo in 1980. Served as a solar energy researcher, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, before immigrating to the U.S. in 1984. [He is also an] International UFO researcher with command of English, Japanese, Russian, German, and Bulgarian [and] Creator/lecturer of UFOLOGY-101 course for University level attendance. - Branton)
With the previous foundation laid, I feel that this would be an appropriate place to include the following information which has made the rounds of the electronic newsgroups:

ATTENTION: CIVIL WAR IS ABOUT TO BEGIN IN THE UNITED STATES! YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES ARE IN ACUTE DANGER! RACE RIOTS AND SLAUGHTER OF AMERICANS WILL BE THE FIRST SIGN! THIS IS NO JOKE!
On July 4, 1992, at a UFO convention in Arcadia, CA, Mr. Michael Younger, a member of the super-secret COM-12 group and a scientist who worked at Groom Lake, Area 51 in Nevada, stunned the audience of over 200 people with the following incredible information, which, if true, endangers the lives and freedoms of every American. Here is the amazing scenario of the planned events:
Beginning in August of this year, 1992, a conspiracy long at work behind the scenes of our government, will make its first overt move. These conspirators plan to create a dictatorship in the United States, suspend our Constitution and attempt to confiscate all guns and firearms in American homes. Stage 1 being to create "race riots" in major U.S. cities such as New York, Chicago, Detroit, etc.; these to begin in August. This will be preceded by a month of subliminal programming via TV and other media to condition the people for civil war in the United States. The accent will be on rap records such as "Body Count" released by Time-Warner [a ROCKEFELLER corporation] by musicians "Ice Tea" and "Sister Solj" whose lyrics in such songs as "Cop Killers" are designed to inflame and polarize its listeners. These rap songs contain such lines as "kill white policemen," "kill the pigs", "kill whitey", and "Why not kill whitey, if he can kill us?" etc.
In August Stage 2, code-named "Operation Hot August Nights" will take effect. Special agents of the conspiracy, masquerading as police, will open fire on minorities, namely Black Americans and Hispanics and Orientals. Other agents will set off incendiary bombs as they did recently in the Los Angeles riots, which essentially was a "test case" that surpassed the expectations of the conspirators. These special agents, masquerading as police, massacre these Blacks and minorities and fire at the real policemen. This brings in more police and the riots escalate. "Skin heads" and other gangs, already fully armed, join in the fray. The real police, vastly outnumbered, cannot handle the rioting. The National Guard is called in and fired upon by [other] special agents masquerading as gang members, who also enlist other gang members to fight the police and national guardsmen. These riots continue through August, with many minority Americans slaughtered in major cities.
(Note: Although this did not come off as planned in August -- possibly because the project had been compromised -- the Globalist plans are still in effect, even if they have experienced temporary postponement or set-back.
Also, a growing number of reports of United Nations military equipment being seen passing through U.S. communities on trains, trucks, etc., have been surfacing in recent years. I personally have learned of a few related incidents. I have come across reports of National Guardsmen undergoing specialized house-to-house search and seizure training and urban warfare tactics. I was also told that two men who managed to sneak into a Federal military plane 'graveyard' outside of Phoenix, Arizona had came across several freight train box-cars in which they discovered what they estimated to be from 2 to 3 million brand-new SHACKLES that were apparently being stored there, just waiting to be used! Keep THIS in mind while reading the following references to potential U.N. involvement in the attempted takeover. Compare this with various implications concerning National AND Communist 'Socialist' control of the U.N. Could the reason why the 'Commies' and 'Nazis' get along together within the U.N. be due to the fact that they are both backed by the Bavarian-Rockefeller alliance? Could it be that the L.A. RIOTS which began on April 29 1992 were a test-run for a plan to incite race riots and a civil race war in the United States?
This is suggested by the following quotes from researcher Val Valerian: "During the UFO EXPO West 92 in Los Angeles, which took place a week after the riots in Los Angeles, I chanced to run into some fellow investigators who had observed several ships loaded with electronic antennae off the coast of Los Angeles two days before the riots took place. There are groups in Southern California that regularly conduct frequency analysis of various metropolitan areas, and they reported that the Los Angeles area was HEAVILY DOSED WITH BETA FREQUENCIES shortly before the riots occurred. Beta frequencies can produce anxiety states, and this most certainly exacerbated another scenario, which was a controlled exercise in population manipulation... On April 30th, the Compton Police Dept. revealed that it had arrested six people for arson, and that when questioned about their activities, the youths said they 'were on a mission to burn down 10 buildings an hour'. Their car contained 10 gallons of gasoline for use in these fire-bombing operations. Law enforcement sources also report that many of those arrested during the disturbance had identical cover stories, indicating that there were many such groups under the coordination and control of someone. The Los Angeles riots were in fact intelligence agency operations that were used to invoke the application of military troops; they were an attempt to start nationwide riots that would require the invocation of martial law and FEMA plans. Another indicator that the 'riots' were probably an intelligence operation is that the day before the Rodney King verdicts were released, a mass leaflet was distributed in South Central Los Angeles by a group calling itself the 'Revolutionary Communist Party'. If you are at all familiar with 'U.S.' intelligence agency practices, it can immediately be seen that RCP is a front for CIA activities. Most 'revolutionary' and 'terrorist' activities are in fact performed by the very intelligence agencies which claim to exist for the prevention of such activities.
The leaflet said, 'There's No Justice in the Courtroom -- It's Right to Rebel.' Within days of the incident, Los Angeles Mayor Tom Bradley [who is also a MEMBER of the Tri-Lateral Commission, folks] used the press-orchestrated clamor for 'police reform' to put TLC counter-insurgency apparatus in place which launched a virtual war on local law enforcement, effectively paralyzing, if not destroying, those functions. TLC member Tom Bradley, as it turns out, appointed fellow TLC member Warren Christopher to form the 'Independent Commission to Investigate the LAPD.' Christopher, whose 'specialty' is riots and urban insurgency, is a partner in the law firm of O'Melveny and Myers. In the early 1960's, he and fellow TLC member Cyrus Vance, then at the Pentagon, drafted 'Operation Garden Plot', a plan for military martial law in American cities in the event of 'domestic civil disorder'. Of course, there is no distinction made of the 'cause' of domestic disorder, if you get my point. Warren Christopher, in fact, was one of the creators of the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration [LEAA], during the Johnson administration, when he was Deputy Attorney General. LEAA was one of the early attempts to implement a top-down federal takeover of local police departments in the U.S. It is apparently a long-standing policy of the Trilateral Commission to foment civil disturbance and unrest, not just in the U.S. but worldwide, in order to foster the imposition of world dictatorship. Don't stop now -- it gets more interesting. Also appointed to the Christopher Commission by TLC member Tom Bradley, Mayor of Los Angeles, is a man by the name of Mickey Kantor, who just happens to be the national campaign manager for the Democratic Presidential candidate and TLC member William Clinton, who is himself at the heart of the drug-smuggling operation that was detailed on April 21, 1992 on NBC televisions 'A Current Affair'; drugs have been flown in and out of the airport in Mena, Arkansas since the early Reagan days, and according to the television broadcast, both BUSH and CLINTON are aware of it; every time there is an effort to look into it, THE INVESTIGATION GETS STONE-WALLED BY THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT. Check it out for yourself..." - Branton)
State 3: In September, President Bush calls in United Nations troops to quash the riots and restore law and order. American troops had indicated they did not wish to fight against American civilians. Bush executes Executive Orders, already in effect, which now give the UN FORCES complete rights and freedom to enter American homes, to confiscate all devices that are capable of communicating information, which includes video cameras, VCRs, computers, mimeographs, anything that can print, copy machines, etc. These troops are furnished certain lists of names, particularly those known as 'Patriots' and these patriots and their families are rounded up first, and if not executed on the spot, are sent to any of the 13 [major] concentration camps now fully activated in the United States. There is nobody left to tell what really happened. Curious neighbors will be told it was a justified "drug raid." Those who escape to the hills and mountains are hunted down by "search and destroy" troops, specially trained for mountain warfare. During September all borders will be closed down, as well as airports. No one is allowed to leave the United States.
Stage 4: In October an 'official' announcement will be carried live on TV, that extraterrestrial aliens, probably Zeta Reticuli 'Greys' have invaded the Earth, with some actual aliens [revealed] on the show. This is actually a fake invasion. The aliens have BEEN on Earth for many years, [and] made treaties and agreements with our governments; there are millions of them in secret underground complexes such as DULCE, New Mexico, which are responsible for the abduction of American children and citizens and the cattle mutilations documented in books and on TV, such as the recent special 'Intruders'. This announcement will cause the entire world to mobilize under UN supervision to fight the 'invaders'.
(Note: ...just as we 'mobilized' under the U.N. to fight the 'Communists' in the pre-planned Korean war, when in fact the pro-Socialist U.N. officials were already in league with the Communists and were betraying our troop movements and plans to the Reds at every turn, according to General Douglas McCarthur. Incidentally the General's comments regarding this betrayal have mysteriously remained out of the 'official' mainstream historical texts. McCarthur, by the way, was an advocate of the belief that the Third World War would involve a space war with aliens in our skies. Could an interplanetary version of this Machievellian scenario be in the works, with the New World Order taking the place of the United Nations, and the 'Alien Grays' taking the place of the 'Communists'? An interesting thing about Michael Younger himself is that others have confirmed the existence of COM-12 and a similar agency called the CABAL. These two NAVY INTELLIGENCE agencies are aware of the presence of the Greys and are OPPOSED to any further dealings with them based on known betrayals of established treaties. COM-12 and the CABAL are involved in an 'Intelligence War' with two fascist agencies connected to the NSA-CIA known as MAJI and AQUARIUS. These two agencies maintain ACTIVE interactions with the 'Grey aliens' and according to some these agencies are actually CONTROLLED by these entities via mind-control implants. Take careful note of the fascist or 'Nazi' origins of both the CIA and NSA as Trojan horse or fifth-column agencies in American Intelligence. COM-12 and the CABAL are working with humanoid ET's who are determined to prevent the reptiloid ET's working through MAJI and AQUARIUS from interfering with the affairs of this planet. The conflict between these two ET groups has apparently led to planet earth being the center of an ancient dispute between these two galactic superpowers, the humanoid non-interventionists of the Pleiades-Andromeda constellations and the reptiloid interventionists of the Orion-Draconis constellations. COM-12 and the CABAL are determined to maintain American independence under the U.S. Constitution, whereas MAJI and AQUARIUS are determined to betray America to the New World Order. COM-12 and the CABAL are intentionally 'leaking' information damaging to MAJI and AQUARIUS to the public, and it 'may' have been due to their efforts that the L.A. Riots take-over scenario failed to materialize into a National Emergency and a New World Order takeover at THAT time. The New World Order advocates have tried several times in the past and will continue to do so in the future. For some reason they are desperate to bring about the New World Order takeover of the United States of America by the year 2000. That is definitely their goal. If all else fails they may attempt an all-out United Nations invasion of the U.S., using whatever possible means they can to "justify" such a "U.N. Operation." - Branton)
During November the chaos continues and more 'UN' troops pour into the United States, mostly mercenaries who have fought in African nations and other 'hot spots' previously. [The butchery of these troops is well documented]. Stage 5: In December a well-planned 'crash' of the stock market will occur, a dramatic drop to at least 1500 on the DJ Industrial Average. This event [is] planned to further weaken, panic and confuse the population. Stage 6: ...The Constitution of the United States is suspended and the people are now living under martial law in a totally FASCIST state.
Who are these conspirators? According to Mike Younger, at the end of World War II, Nelson Rockefeller brought 3000 high Nazi party officials from Germany illegally into the U.S., without permission. As of today it is believed there are now 1.6 million Nazis in the U.S., many high in government and major corporations, such as ATLANTIC RICHFIELD in New Jersey. Incredibly, these Nazi fascists are attempting to set up a "4th Reich" to continue the thousand-year plan of Adolph Hitler, [with its intent] to eventually eliminate "non Aryan" people such as Jews, Blacks and other 'dissidents'. In January, 2000, when the 'real' alien invasion occurs, the planet will be officially turned over to the alien invaders, the Nazi rulers expecting to get 25% of the Earth for themselves.
