Nazi Explorers of the Amazon




Nazi Explorers of the Amazon in 3-D  is title I would have preferred,  but I wish I could say this were just a pulp adventure story turned B-film. It isn't.

On a tiny island situated on a tributary of the Rio Jari of Northern Brazil stands a nine-foot high wooden cross decorated with a Swastika, the unmistakable symbol of the 3rd Reich. The memorial in the photo above states that Joseph Greiner “died of fever in the service of German Research Work.”  This was three years before WWII officially began in 1939 and over a decade before Nazi’s began making their infamous exodus to South America to escape prosecution for war-crimes.  So what were the Nazi's doing so deep in the Brazilian jungle in 1936?  Well, it just so happens that the Nazi's were up to all kinds of stuff in many parts of the world well before they made any military efforts at world domination. In fact the exploratory mission in 1935 by Nazi Germany to the Amazon region of Brazil serves as a testament to just how expansive the Nazi’s imagined their empire would become.




The expedition was lead by an elite S.S. officer Otto Schulz-Kampfhenkel and his staff which included a significant number of hired locals who participated in the endeavor. Secretly it was known as the Guayana Project and was a highly classified effort by Nazi intelligence to produce data on the feasibility of establishing a bridgehead against american influence in the Amazon. The project was conducted under the auspices of collecting samples of the indigenous flora and fauna of the region. Kampfhenkel even produced a film about his adventures called Rätsel der Urwaldhölle, but the secret project was of course not mentioned.



At the conclusion of the study Kampfhenkel submitted a report with details about how the Nazi’s might infiltrate and begin colonizing the country for themselves. He included details on how German soldiers should live and adapt to the environment.  It was suggested that since there was already a significant German population in several South American countries, it was feasible to establish a South American extension of the Third Reich's Empire. A portion of his final report reads:

‘The two largest scantly populated, but rich in resources, areas on earth are in Siberia and South America. ‘They alone offer spacious immigration and settlement possibilities for the Nordic peoples… For the more advanced white race it offers outstanding possibilities for exploitation.’ Like a dedicated Nazi who believed in the ideals of racial purity As one might expect from an S.S. man who believed in the ideals of Nazi racial purity, his report said the people who lived there 'cannot be measured in civilized terms as we known them in Germany.'

The mission was overall less successful than it's leader had hoped. Greiner, another S.S. officer died of malaria while on the expedition and after review of Kampfhenkel's report by his superiors, the plans to expand into Brazil were shelved because of bureaucratic obstacles, and a lack of immediate interest. ‘Given time, the plan may be submitted again” wrote Heinrich Himmler in response to Kampfhenkel's report.

Very little physical evidence remains of this ambitious effort to colonize the jungles of Brazil. There are the graves of those who died in pursuit of this goal and some bricks from an old building that bare swastikas. However, the true economic and psychological impact of the Nazi foray into the jungle may be incalculable. According to local accounts it appears as though  the project employed a significant number of slave laborers obtained from local orphanages. Some of these former slaves are still alive and seeking acknowledged of what occurred and even restitution for this sinister legacy left behind by the Nazi cohort.

I  find this story to be highly fascinating and worthy of additional research. Even today we continue to unearth secret Nazi projects from around the world and remnants of their various exploits. It obvious that S.S. Intelligence were even interested in exploring Siberia too judging by the statements in Kampfhenkel's report and it's well known their efforts to colonize Antarctica in the years before WW2. What else were they up to that has not yet been uncovered?

Misión a Marte: ¿Hemos ido ya?


English Version coming 2/1/2013   (AS FEATURED IN THE MURFREESBORO PULSE)


2013 será un año en el que un puñado de audaces exploradores lanzarán expediciones a algunos lugares más recónditos de nuestro planeta. Pero ninguna expedición al centro del Congo africano o incluso a la Antártida se puede comparar a lo que será necesario llevar a cabo en el proyecto MarsOne, que busca lograr el establecimiento de una colonia permanente en Marte. El proyecto iniciado por el empresario holandés Bas Lansdorp en 2011 pretende llevar la exploración espacial a un nivel sin precedentes, y poner a los cuatro primeros colonos en Marte en 2023, así como enviar a cuatro colonos adicionales cada 2 años.

Tengo que admitir mi envidia hacía los seleccionados para este hecho histórico. ¿Pero será realmente el primer esfuerzo del hombre para colonizar Marte? La razón por la que hago esta pregunta, aparentemente ridícula, consiste en que hay gente que afirma tener el conocimiento de una colonia preexistente en el planeta rojo y un programa espacial secreto y aún desconocido al público. La bisnieta del trigésimo cuarto presidente de América, Dwight D. Eisenhower, a la que entrevisté en 2010. Laura Magdalena Eisenhower dice que un agente que trabaja para un grupo misterioso llamado“la pajarera” la presionó para afiliarse a una colonia de supervivencia secreta en Marte, mucho antes de cualquier oficial por la NASA u otras firmas privadas. Este grupo secreto incluso la amenazó con secuestrarla si no cooperara.



Desde mi entrevista con Eisenhower he investigado la información que rodea a otras reclamaciones acerca de la existencia de una colonia secreta en Marte y de un programa espacial secreto desconocido para el público estadounidense. Entre aquellos que corroboran la existencia, según su relato, de una operación encubierta que se ha denominado "Marsgate", está Andrew Basiago, un abogado del Estado de Washington, que es el presidente de Proyecto Pegasus y del Marte Anomalía Sociedad de Investigación, y otros que dicen que fueron teletransportados a la colonia durante la década de 1980.

Echemos un vistazo a más pruebas. El que fue considerado por la administración Bush como el "hack del equipo militar más grande de todos los tiempos" Gary McKinnon, un hacker de Gran Bretaña, dice que consiguió ilegalmente archivos informáticos relativos a un proyecto llamado "Guardián Solar". Afirma haber visto documentos listado "oficiales no-terrestres" e incluso algunos detalles de una flota de 8 buques de madre y 43 buques pequeños. En 2002, McKinnon fue acusado de siete delitos, cada uno causa de una pena de prisión de 10 años. Sin embargo, los esfuerzos para extraditar el hacker no dieron fruto. Algunos creen que no fue extraditado porque un juicio en su contra podría conducir a citaciones de los funcionarios del Pentágono y a la exposición de información secreta y clasificada.

Si usted piensa que el Gobierno de Estados Unidos no es capaz de mantener en secreto un proyecto de esta magnitud, se equivoca. El proyecto Manhattan fue responsable de desarrollar la primera bomba atómica durante la segunda guerra y casi 130.000 personas en más de 30 sitios y costó el equivalente a 25,8 billones de dólares.



Como hemos visto con el proyecto de Manhattan, no sería la primera vez que los proyectos científicos masivos se han escondido del público. También podría explicar lo que parece ser una carencia del progreso en nuestra exploración del espacio tripulada y la razón de las reducciones de la financiación para programas NASA de la administración actual. Si todavía es escéptico, haga su propia investigación antes de rechazar cualquier hipótesis. Hay, literalmente, cientos de testimonios que han sido coleccionados durante años por el Disclosure Project y por otros grupos privados en la investigación de presuntos encubrimientos y tecnologías secretas. Yo creo que un día averiguaremos que nuestras capacidades de navegación espacial avanzan mucho más de lo que nos quieren hacer creer. Considerando la falta de progreso que la NASA ha experimentado durante la década pasada, creo que nos gustaría a todos creer que el programa espacial americano es fenomenal pero en secreto.

Como siempre, animo a cada uno a hacer su propia investigación y buscar la verdad sin hacer caso a lo que los otros le dicen. ¡Hasta la próxima vez, siga explorando!

13 Predictions for 2013










As published in the January 2013 Edition of the Murfreesboro Pulse


We made it! The time has arrived to issue predictions for the coming year. For two consecutive years I have had some success with making future predictions as well as sharing some predictions from others that I think are credible. Of course, I'm not always right. Elvis Presley is still in hiding and Fidel Castro isn't completely dead. Without further delay, here are my top 13 predictions for 2013.


1. "Evidence for the existence of Bigfoot will finally be accepted by some in the mainstream scientific community and lead to discussions and further breakthroughs that will result in the official acknowledgement of the species and blurring the lines which define what it means to be human." - Cameron Parrish




2. "I see nano technology becoming more mainstream and stem cell discoveries will help reduce mortality rates. This will have a direct and dramatic impact on cancer and Alzheimer treatment among others including extending life span and healthier aging. We will start using augmented reality - virtual and of our minds and even augmenting biology, including our own. Also cloud base computing will be the norm. The development of new propulsion systems will impact transportation, helping reduce poverty and better distribution of our planet's natural resources. We will confirm the existence of non-Earth biology in 2013." -Yuri Cunza



3. "I predict Israel will strike Iran (conventionally), igniting a regional conflict that includes Egypt. I think America's response will be financial aid but little else to Israel." - Will Moonan


4. " As a result of the 'fiscal cliff' The United States will slip into a protracted recession what will eventually be known as the Second Great Depression." - Cameron Parrish


5. "NASA will continue to unveil discoveries which will begin to re-write what we know about the history of our solar system and life on Earth."- Cameron Parrish


6. "Major Cultural Shifts combined with rapidly aging population will result in increased acceptance of and legislatioin supporting medically assisted suicide and right to die movements." - Jim McPeters


7. "2013 will be marked with more violent outbreaks leading to less freedom. Everything that we do will me monitored, which will cause another kind of chaos." - Nessa Parrish


8. "A large earthquake will occur in the United States and be concentrated west of the Mississippi but impact the entire country economically." - Cameron Parrish


9. "Information about some bizarre coincidences and anomalous circumstances surrounding recent mass shootings will continue to emerge only to be ignored by mainstream media and tossed into the conspiracy theory category. In 2013 we will see more of this 'American political witchcraft' at work."- Cameron Parrish


10. "Guns and taxes should be huge in the political realm" - Bracken Mayo


11. "I predict that Nashville will get an Ikea, or Murfreesboro (TN) gets a Whole Foods."

- Lacey Garrett


12. "The Facebook Cliff. It seems necessary to have a page but let's face it, once everyone's Grandmother got on FB it was doomed. Their latest attempt to hijack your instagram photos was a sign of desperation and greed. FYI Teenagers have already left for other outlets. That says it all." - Brian Anderson


13. "My prediction is that at least one of the conspiracies or topics that you write about will be proven to be true (Sasquatch, Aliens etc...) . Then you will have the satisfaction of telling us, your friends and readers, 'See, I told you b***hes' "- Andrew Wortman


There you have it amigos. I hope you are prepared for at least some of these to happen. Regardless of what 2013 has in store, I'm wishing you all a very Happy New Year!
