The Admiral Byrd / Operation Highjump Myth

Anyone who has read a bit on UFOs during World War II (especially any Nazi technology angle) has no doubt run into the story of how Admiral Richard Byrd “led 4,000 military troops from the U.S., Britain and Australia in an invasion of Antarctica called “Operation Highjump” . . . and encountered heavy resistance to their Antarctic venture from flying saucers and had to call off the invasion.”1 The story is bogus (the UFO part), but gullible researchers have perpetuated this myth. I’m not sure why when the real story is not difficult to find. I have the proof in The Portent.

Here’s the way the myth is usually told:

On 5 March, 1947 the “El Mercurio” newspaper of Santiago, Chile, had a headline article “On Board the Mount Olympus on the High Seas” which quoted Byrd in an interview with Lee Van Atta:

“Adm. Byrd declared today that it was imperative for the United States to initiate immediate defense measures against hostile regions. Furthermore, Byrd stated that he “didn’t want to frighten anyone unduly” but that it was “a bitter reality that in case of a new war the continental United States would be attacked by flying objects which could fly from pole to pole at incredible speeds.”2

This quotation is based on a deliberately manipulated translation of what Byrd really said. Here is the text of the interview in the original Spanish and an accurate English translation. One can see how misleading the above manipulative translation really is — designed to have Byrd talking about advanced flight technology when he said nothing of the sort. Anyone who can read Spanish can verify this.

Enemies of the world are experts in lying as they are following their father of lies, who is SATAN.

John 8:44 You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
