November 22

In 1945, despite the Infamous Lava Man being too far gone for current re-animation technology to succeed, the alien scientists at the Secret Nazi Base in New Swabia, Antartica did manage to bring Adolf Hitler back to life although admittedly he was hopelessly insane.

Back to LifeAlthough in its infancy at the time, the technology advanced even further over the course of the next thirty-six years. Which was fortunate, because Ronald Wilson Reagan had unwisely ignored the advice of the Secret Service who urged him to reconsider his personal safety given the frequent number of recent assassination attempts on the President.

Inevitably, just sixty-nine days after taking office when he was once again in public view and thus the easiest of targets, Reagan was shot dead through the heart by John Hinckley, Jr. Waking up at the George Washington University Hospital surrounded by alien scientists, he joked "I hope you're all Republicans!". Increasingly unable to distinguish between the Soviet and alien threats, he later alluded to the event somewhat obiquely at the United Nations on 21st September 1987.

In sharp contract to the Gipper's effusiveness however, the Fuehrer's own ill-tempted gratitude was restricted to a brief pause in which he expressed his thanks (pictured) before his maniac attention turned to fixing up his crashed Haunebu-type Nazi saucer craft. During the repair process, sabotage soon emerged as the suspected cause of the "Repulsine" engine failure.

Despite their successful attempt to kill Hitler, the American saboteurs were rapidly reaching the Fuehrer's same conclusion that world war with the Soviet Union was a necessity if Western Civilization was to be saved from Bolshevism. And somewhat alarmingly, when Reagan began to mutter about the Soviet Union being an "evil empire", it was discovered that the alien scientists had made unauthorised use of Hitler's biological material as spare parts needed to effect the repair work.

In 1940, the second phase of Operation Barbarossa began on this day with Wehrmacht Forces invading the smoking ruins of the Soviet Union bombed to near-submission by a devastating aerial assault from Nazi UFOs.

Barbarossa Phase ThreeAlthough the two dictatorships had been on a potental collision course for years, a raw materials crisis in Nazi Germany had forced an acceleration of the invasion plans.

The German High Command had carefully studied the strategic errors of Napoleon's failed invasion of 1812. And by attacking in the early summer, German Generals avoided L'Empereur's chief mistake by arriving in Moscow long before the cruel Russian Winter set in.

Nevertheless, the Fuhrer had ignored a secondary lesson, which was that the occupation of Western Russia would create "more of a drain than a relief" for Germany's economic situation.

The severity of German miscalculations was amplified by the emergence of the Greater Zionist Resistance (GZR), a "stay behind organization" of Jewish NKVD officers who created havoc in the German supply lines.

Locked into a deadly street-by-street fight with the Red Army, the Wehrmacht were forced to move to phase three, sustaining troop levels by employing the zombie re-animation technology that would save the Fuhrer's life five years later.

In 1946, on this day the 4,700 men, 13 ships, and multiple aircraft carriers of Task Force 68 departed from Norfolk, Virginia on a mission to end the Second World War by destroying the Secret Nazi Base in New Swabia, Antarctica.

Battle of AntarcticaUS Navy Secretary James Forrestal had personally supervised the assembly of this huge amphibious naval force, but for the mission itself, the principal leadership figure was Rear Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd, Jr. who had been given operational command of the Carrier Group.

Forrestal had determined that Byrd was uniquely qualified to succeed in his assigned role in "Operation High Jump". He had already led three missions to Antartica but this would be the first that was funded by the Federal Government. Also, in the 1938 he had travelled to Hamburg where he was invited to participate in the 1938/1939 German "Neuschwabenland" Antarctic Expedition which he been forced to decline with great regret.

And yet the mission itself was uniquely challenging. On the 19th February, 1947 six R4-D planes took off from the carrier "Phillipine Sea" but only five returned. The sixth returned some seven hours later, after Byrd met with the Fuhrer. No details of that meeting have ever emerged, apart from a fragment from Byrd's Missing Diary ~ "There comes a time when the rationality of men must fade into insignificance and one must accept the inevitability of the Truth! I am not at liberty to disclose the following documentation at this writing ...perhaps it shall never see the light of public scrutiny, but I must do my duty and record here for all to read one day. In a world of greed and exploitation of certain of mankind can no longer suppress that which is truth". This article is taken from the NaziUFO thread.

October 25

In 1888, on this day the commander of the final engagement of World War 2, Rear Admiral Richard Evelyn Byrd, Jr. was born in Winchester, Virginia.

Birth of Rear Admiral Richard E. ByrdHe was a naval officer who specialized in feats of exploration being a pioneering American aviator, polar explorer, and organizer of polar logistics. Aircraft flights, in which he served as a navigator and expedition leader, crossed the Atlantic Ocean, a segment of the Arctic Ocean, and a segment of the Antarctic Plateau. His expeditions [1] had been the first to reach the North Pole and the South Pole by air.

In 1946 he was selected by US Navy Secretary James Forrestal as the operational command for Task Force 68. His mission was to end the Second World War by destroying the Secret Nazi Base in New Swabia, Antarctica. [2]

At the climax of the Battle of Antarctica he secretly met with the Fuhrer. No details of that meeting have ever emerged, apart from a fragment from Byrd's Missing Diary ~ "There comes a time when the rationality of men must fade into insignificance and one must accept the inevitability of the Truth! I am not at liberty to disclose the following documentation at this writing .. perhaps it shall never see the light of public scrutiny, but I must do my duty and record here for all to read one day. In a world of greed and exploitation of certain of mankind can no longer suppress that which is truth". This article is taken from the NaziUFO thread.

In 1948, on this day American scientists finally succeeded in reverse engineering the anti-gravitation technology that had enabled the Nazi leadership to escape from the New Swabia base in Antartica before it was destroyed by an atomic bomb dropped from the B-29 "Sally Jupiter" of the 509th Composite Group.

Die GlockeDie Glocke ("The Bell") was a top secret technological device conceived by the Nazi scientist Hans Kammler. At the Wenceslaus mine by the Czech border his team successfully developed a test rig which had the appearance of a tall thin thermos flask a meter high encased in lead and containing red mercury. Not only had the goal of anti-gravity propulsion been achieved, but a concave mirror on top of the device provided the ability to see images from the past during its operation.

Fortunately, a film of that remarkable test had been smuggled out by an Allied double agent. The consequence was the momentous decision by FDR to abandon his demands for an unconditional surrender, and offer the Nazi High Command safe passage to Antartica.

The further development of secret weaponry then tempted the Fuhrer to resume hostilities. The result was the Battle of Antarctica which ended in the nuclear destruction of the Nazi base. Of course the Allies were unable to pursue the Nazis to the Moon base. The flipside was that the Nazis still needed a regular supply of red mercury from earth. Having developed their own UFO, the Allies decided to starve out the Nazi Moon base by intercepting the supply chain. The result was a frenetic series of UFO battles fought particularly over the North American continent. The Second World War had ended its final phase..

September 3

In 1946, on this day after the final ultimatum was ignored, the Secret Nazi base in New Swabia, Antarctica was destroyed by an atomic bomb dropped from the B-29 "Sally Jupiter" of the 509th Composite Group.

End of Operation High Jump Admiral Byrd drops the "Snow Ball" by Ed, Paul J. Adam et alThis bomb ("Snow Ball") killed most of the expendable personnel left behind and destroyed the hangars and launch facilities.

The vaunted Reichsflugscheiben had of course evacuated to the moonbase the day before.

The last survivors of the Nazi base surrendered to a British destroyer that served in the blockade patrol in the area. These survivors had to mutiny and kill their last few hard-liner leaders, in order to be able to do the sensible thing. They told their rescuers that after finishing their food stocks, and after the ensuing grisly episodes of madness and cannibalism, they were sure they couldn't get through another winter.

November 19

In 1945, on this day Adolf Hitler and the Infamous Lava Man were both killed after a Schauberger "Repulsine" engine failure caused their sabotaged Haunebu-type Nazi saucer craft to crash land on approach to the secret base in New Swabia, Antarctica.

Farewell to the MagiciansCornered like a rat in Berlin, the Fuehrer had made a number of fantastically exaggerated claims for the secret technology with which he bought his escape from the Third Reich. And having issued upwards of a thousand emergency passports to German Scientists, the United States soon discovered that the UFO technology had been oversold, in fact like many American consumers they found the units exhibited many of the hallmarks of German products themselves, being over-featured, mostly safe but ultimately unsatisfying.

Despite his fast-talking, spittle-flying claims the Haunebu model had not transported Nazi Astronauts to the moon in 1942, rather the Repulsine engine lifted the craft just a few feet off the ground, permitting Hitler and Goering to engage in a somewhat childish if not futuristic game of bumper cars. Enraged by the double-cross, American agents had fixed the Fuehrer by sabotaging his lousy toy craft.

A new story by the EditorDespite well publicised failures at Roswell and Kecksberg, both the United States and Canada nevertheless persisted with the programme well into the 1970s, believing that the levational concept was fundamentally sound, just requiring the injection of a super fuel to accelerate flight to supersonic speeds. Finally, a suitable quantity of Element 115 was secured from aliens. Rushed to Area 51 for testing, the infinitely valuable fuel was then stolen by the pyrotechnic freak Bob Lazar who exploded the material at one of his annual Desert Storm Parties before becoming the victim of a mysterious hit and run shooting on a Las Vegas Highway.

December 8

In 1945, with Adolf Hitler on the verge of a second physical death at his frozen Bechtesgarden, alien scientists desperately fought to reverse the accelerating ageing process that had set in after his re-animation.

Funeral in New BerlinBut of course its no good, and by nightfall, his corps of elite storm troopers mount him on a funeral bier in a Viking longboat which is set ablaze in the antarctic fyord. Boarding an unmarked plane, they fly Eva Braun and the Fuhrer's unborn son to the opening at the South Pole where they enter the hollow Earth and disappear from history.

The secret base at New Swabia lies abandoned for many, many years. But when inter-species warfare breaks out between humans and the monstrous alien squids, surviving resistance commanders are forced to search for the one man who might just have the key to saving life on earth..

August 1

In 1940, on this day the Nazi UFOs in "hot pursuit" of the fleeing British Government turned back after a cabal of American Nazi businessmen convinced the Fuhrer that North America would soon fall to a Quisling-style coup d'etat.

Hot PursuitWith the RAF swept from the skies by next generation flying saucers, Operation Sealion had proceeded with frightening pace forcing Churchill to plan a strategic withdrawal to establish a Government-in-Exile in Canada. Hitler ordered Goering to destroy the Royal Navy ships carrying both the Cabinet and also the Royal Household. However, for the second time in six months, he ordered a last minute halt operation that enraged (and confounded) the German armed services.

In the United States, Nazi sympathisers such as Henry Ford, Walt Disney, Prescott Bush and Alfred P. Sloan were confident that they could overthrow the government. However the sudden opening of an Atlantic theatre might prove counter-productive to their plans, and therefore they convinced the Fuhrer that such a move was unnecessary. Instead, Edward VIII and Oswald Mosley formed a new government in London, one that could demonstrate the semblance of sovereignty that would force Churchill to capitulate, and perhaps convince the silent majority of Americans to come around to the idea of joining the Axis.

But then the situation changed dramatically; the benign alien race known as the Mlosh landed in Canada. In his diary that night, Churchill wrote the famous words: "To have the Mlosh at our side was to me the greatest joy. Now at this very moment I knew the Mlosh was in the war, up to the neck and in to the death. So we had won after all!...Hitler's fate was sealed. Mussolini's fate was sealed. As for the Japanese, they would be ground to powder". It was an amazing reversal of fortune for the blue-bloods; the tide of war had finally turned (green)..

November 27

In 2010, on this day surviving resistance commanders raced against time to reach the reactivated secret Nazi base in New Swabia, Antartica where they searched for clues that might be hidden in the hopeless stream of footage showing the tentacles of monstrous alien squids destroying human property.

Tempus FugitNever in the two millenia since Virgil had coined the phrase "Tempus Fugit" had the term held more resonance. Because despite human civilization being brought to a state of near-collapse, the all-out invasion had begun just two weeks before the emergency military conference was hastily convened.

"But meanwhile it flees: time flees irretrievably, while we wander around, prisoners of our love of detail"The event that sparked the crisis was the termination of a technology sharing alliance which enabled humans and the squids to co-exist peacefully for the last sixty years. And the cause was the accidental discovery by Jesse Ventura that human scientists had rebuilt the time dilation device pioneered at Isgarden in the last days of the third Reich by the theoretical physicist Wilhelm Schoemann.

In 1968, neo-Nazis had used the original device to create the enemy they had always imagined, a world-wide conspiracy movement known as the "Greater Zionist Resistance". Despite the ultimate failure of that attempt to draw the right-wing support necessary to force a Nazi victory, the squids feared that scientists would attempt an even bolder mission to transform human fortunes by changing the terms of engagement at first contact.

December 17

In 2009, despite the unambiguous evidence of sonar reports presented by the British Admiralty, the Armada de la República Argentina flatly denied any responsibility for the frenzied submarine activity in the exclusion zone surrounding the Falklands, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands.

The Mlosh are back! Through collaborative investigation work undertaken by both Navys, the unidentified vessels were traced to the secret Nazi base at New Swabia in the Antarctic. The mystery was unsolved however because thermal satellite images failed to reveal any evidence of human energy signatures at the disused base.

Abandoned after the Fuhrer's second physical death, Neuschwabenland had been incorporated into Norwegian dependent territory under the Antarctic Treaty System of 1961. It was an ideal location for a third landing attempt by the benign alien race known as the Mlosh...
