That Time ‘UFOs’ Took Over Los Angeles

• Early in the morning of February 25th, 1942, a large unidentified object hovered over Los Angeles. While sirens blared and searchlights pierced the sky, 1400 anti-aircraft shells were pumped into the air as citizens cowered and marveled below. One female air warden said, “[I]t was practically right over my house. I had never seen anything like it in my life!” Were these flying saucers that had come to destroy LA?

• Eye-witnesses swore that it certainly was not a plane or a balloon. But the official explanation was that the UFO was two weather balloons released by the Douglas Aircraft Plant in Santa Monica, and from the Sawtelle Veterans Hospital in Westwood. Jittery soldiers, already on high alert due to the recent attack on Pearl Harbor, panicked – and the rest is conspiracy theory history.

• According the LA Times, on February 23rd, 1942, ‘a Japanese submarine surfaced …near Santa Barbara, and pumped 13 rounds of 5 ½ inch shells at oil installations. Minor damage was done to piers and oil wells, but the raider missed a gasoline plant, apparently its actual target.’ A panicked Los Angeles awoke on February 24th to photos of the damage, and news that the enemy submarine was nowhere to be found. That evening, the Navy received word of yet another imminent attack.

• In the early morning hours of February 25th, air raid defense radar tracked an unidentified object approximately 100 miles from LA. Radio silence was ordered and searchlights were trained on the sky. A little after 3 am, a “balloon-like” object appeared over Culver City and Santa Monica. Minutes later, the artillery shelling began. Around 12,000 volunteer air raid wardens took their positions patrolling the streets as shrapnel from the shells rained down on LA.

• People claimed to see many different things — from a blimp to more than 50 planes. Bill Birnes, publisher of UFO Magazine, told PR Newswire in 2011 that these UFOs were flying too high to be Japanese bombers. Apparently, not a single artillery shell was able to hit the UFO craft. But most of the danger lay on the ground below where shrapnel rained down. A shipyard worker recalled that as the night shift was leaving and the morning shift was arriving, everyone was collecting the shrapnel that was scattered all around. One witness said, “[S]hrapnel-strewn areas took on the appearance of a huge Easter-egg hunt, [as] youngsters and grownups alike scrambled through streets and vacant lots, picking up and proudly comparing chunks of shrapnel fragments.”

• Up to six people died that morning, some in car accidents and others from heart attacks. Many volunteer wardens were injured by falling shells. And numerous Japanese Americans were arrested for “signaling” to the invaders.

• The next day, the LA Times reported “foreign aircraft flying both large formations and singly flew over Southern California early today and drew heavy barrages of anti-aircraft fire — the first ever to sound over United States continental soil against an enemy invader,” along with a heavily doctored photo of searchlights shining on the unidentified object flying over the city (shown above).

• To make matters more confusing, the Army Chief of Staff initially said there were 15 enemy aircraft over LA, while the Navy said it was just a false alarm. The Navy blamed the Army for being over-eager to shoot at the sky. In response, on February 27th, the LA Times printed an editorial stating: “This Is No Time For Squabbling.”

• There also may have been a cover-up to save officials from the embarrassment of fighting a weather balloon. One soldier recalled being told “there had been seven Japanese planes up there.” He stated, “I was also told that if I repeated my story about shooting at a balloon and not enemy planes, I would be put behind bars.”

• In 1975, LA Times aerospace editor Marvin Miles wrote a memo on the LA incident, relying on the US governments ‘official version’ of events. After the war, it was established that the Japanese had sent no planes to LA during the war. Meteorological balloons known to have been released over Los Angeles may well have caused the initial alarm. Anti-aircraft artillery units were officially criticized for having wasted ammunition on targets which moved too slowly to be airplanes.

• But in the 1970’s and 80’s, the conspiracy theories that the ‘Battle of LA’ was due to extraterrestrial UFOs hovering over the city began to emerge. The theory gained traction in 1987 when some Majestic 12 documents were released, including the ‘Marshall/ Roosevelt Memo of March 5, 1942’, claiming that two alien aircraft had been recovered after the incident. The memo goes on to say, “This Headquarters has come to a determination that the mystery airplanes are in fact not earthly and according to secret intelligence sources they are in all probability of interplanetary origin.”

Skeptoid podcast host Brian Dunning writes, “For more than 40 years, not a single person associated with the Battle of Los Angeles entertained any thoughts about extraterrestrial spacecraft or aliens. … The alien spacecraft angle is purely a post-hoc invention by modern promoters of UFO mythology.”

• But the truth behind the Battle of Los Angeles is probably more about human fallibility — bad intel, errant weather balloons and poor training — than anything else. However, the records are so muddled that the true story of The Great Air Raid will forever be fodder for those with conspiratorial minds.

[Editor’s Note]  The “large UFO” hovering over Los Angeles in February 1942 was actually a cluster of UFOs, each surrounded by a shimmering force field which together looked like one big balloon. However, as noted, two UFO saucers were indeed shot down. One was recovered by the Navy in the Pacific Ocean. The other crashed inland in the San Bernardino Mountains east of LA and was recovered by the Army. Both were taken to Wright Patterson Airfield in Ohio where it was determined that these were unmanned drone craft, not from this planet.  Dr Michael Salla discusses the 1942 LA incident at length in his 2017 book, The US Navy’s Secret Space Program and Nordic Extraterrestrial Alliance.

 

It was the early morning of Feb. 25, 1942. A large unidentified object hovered over a Pearl Harbour-rattled Los Angeles, while sirens blared and searchlights pierced the sky. One thousand and four hundred anti-aircraft shells were pumped into the air as Angelenos cowered and marveled. “It was huge! It was just enormous!” one female air warden allegedly claimed. “And it was practically right over my house. I had never seen anything like it in my life!”

But that wasn’t all. Some Angelenos claimed there were more strange objects in the sky that night, namely dozens of airplanes — or was it flying saucers? — that had come to destroy L.A.

“The obvious thought was that these were Japanese bombers come to attack the United States,” UFO expert Bill Birnes, publisher of UFO Magazine, told PR Newswire in 2011. “But it wasn’t. They were flying too high. And the astounding thing was not one artillery shell could hit the craft — out of all the hundreds of shells that were fired. People outside that night swore that it was neither a plane nor a balloon — it was a UFO. It floated, it glided. And to this day, nobody can explain what that craft was, why our anti-aircraft guns couldn’t hit it — it’s a mystery that’s never been resolved.”

That night, befuddled officials would only help the urban legend grow. Many officials now believe two weather balloons released by the 203rd Coast Artillery Regiment from the Douglas Aircraft Plant in Santa Monica and the Sawtelle Veterans Hospital in Westwood may be responsible for the ensuing chaos. Jittery soldiers already on high alert in the early days of World War II panicked and the rest is conspiracy theory history.

All of the pieces were in place, according to the LA Times, “for the confused action known as the ‘battle of Los Angeles.’”
“People outside that night swore that it was neither a plane nor a balloon — it was a UFO. It floated, it glided. And to this day, nobody can explain what that craft was, why our anti-aircraft guns couldn’t hit it — it’s a mystery that’s never been resolved.”

The city was on high alert following the attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. Rumors of an imminent Japanese invasion were constant.

According to Terrenz Sword, author of The Battle of Los Angeles 1942: The Mystery Air Raid, during one incident, the Navy reportedly received a tip that there were more than 30 enemy ships off the coast. Army pilots took off to find them — only to discover they were nothing more than fishing boats.

Southern California’s worst fears were realized on the night of Feb. 23, 1942. The LA Times described the scene 20 years later:
As President Roosevelt warned a nation-wide radio audience that the oceans “have become endless battlefields on which we are constantly being challenged by our enemies,” a Japanese submarine, I-17, surfaced off-shore at Ellwood, near Santa Barbara, and pumped 13 rounds of 5 ½ in shells at oil installations. Minor damage was done to piers and oil wells, but the raider missed a gasoline plant, apparently its actual target.

A panicked Los Angeles awoke on Feb. 24 to photos of the damage from the shells and news that the enemy submarine was nowhere to be found. That evening, the Navy received word of another imminent attack. In the early morning hours of Feb. 25, air raid defense radar tracked an unidentified object approximately 100 miles from L.A. At 2:25 a.m., air raid sirens blasted. Shortly after, radio silence was ordered and searchlights began to pierce the sky. A little after 3 a.m., a balloon-like object appeared in the sky over Culver City and Santa Monica — the same one that people would later call UFOs or a mysterious aircraft.

Most Bizarre Area 51 Conspiracy Theories Revealed Including Weather Control, ‘Exotic Energy Weapons’ and Meetings With Aliens

Listen to “E45 7-29-19 Most Bizarre Area 51 Conspiracy Theories Revealed Including Weather Control, ‘Exotic Energy Weapons’ …” on Spreaker.

Article by Harry Pettit                July 19, 2019              (thesun.co.uk)

  • After more than six decades of covert tests at the top secret military site, Area 51 remains shrouded in mystery. Here are a few of the theories of what goes on at Area 51.
  • UFO Testing – The craft and alien crew of the UFO that crashed at Roswell, NM in 1947 was said to be taken to Area 51. A 1996 documentary entitled “Dreamland” featured a 71-year-old mechanical engineer who claimed that he worked on a flying disc simulator used to train US pilots, based on a crashed extraterrestrial UFO. Rumors of dissections of dead aliens and interrogations of living ones are said to have been carried out at Area 51. But there is no evidence to support this claim. Others have maintained that the only exotic craft flying out of Area 51 have been captured Soviet-built MiG jet fighters or our own advanced experimental aircraft.
  • Weather Control – Meteorologists at Area 51 are thought to have experimented with ‘cloud seeding’, where chemicals are dropped into clouds from planes to try to make them produce rain in order to combat water shortages in the Western US. A separate section is said to have tried producing hurricanes and storms that could be directed at enemy countries.
  • Majestic 12 – The Majestic 12 is a secret committee of US scientists, military leaders, politicians and civil servants created by President Harry Truman to manage alien investigations. Area 51 is supposedly a key location for the Majestic 12’s activities, including the examination of the aliens recovered from the 1947 Roswell incident. There is no concrete proof that Majestic 12 ever existed.
  • Energy Weapons – Some claim that the reverse-engineered alien tech at Area 51 has yielded futuristic weapons from lasers that can vaporize a man in seconds, to time travel gadgets. Stories of machines built using alien tech stretch as far as the imagination can go. Again, there’s no evidence this tech ever existed.
  • Future Transport – Many ex-employees have testified to the extensive underground facilities at Area 51. Area 51 is said to be the central hub for an underground train system that crosses the whole continent of North America. An Area 51 runway known as the ‘Cheshire Airstrip’ is believed to be visible only when water is sprayed on its cunningly camouflaged tarmac. Government authorities deny all of this.
  • A hidden military base from the 1860’s was recently found buried beneath Alcatraz prison. (see here)
  • [Editor’s Note]  The Deep State’s disinformation strategy here is to bring up a list of dubious claims associated with Area 51, and then debunk them all as lacking any evidence. In the public’s mind, storage of extraterrestrial craft and alien bodies become just as ridiculous as laser weapons, controlling the weather, underground train systems, and time travel machines. It becomes too much cognitive dissonance for the average unenlightened person to grasp, and so they toss it all away as one cumulative conspiracy theory. While the government is meticulous in ensuring that no hard evidence is ever revealed from its classified ‘black projects’, there is plenty of compelling anecdotal, documentary and testimonial evidence of alien craft and bodies in the possession of the US government, weather control programs, Majestic 12, advanced technologies including time travel, and an extensive deep underground bullet train system crisscrossing the continent, for anyone who has the mental capacity to research and accept these hidden truths. Still, these types of articles might one day backfire on the Deep State. By planting the seed of knowledge of these “unsubstantiated” covert activities, the mainstream public will be somewhat aware of them when further evidence is eventually revealed to support these accounts.

 

AREA 51 remains shrouded in mystery after more than six decades of secretive tests at the site.

It’s no wonder, then, that the military facility in Nevada has spawned a number of wacky conspiracy theories.

From a production site for ‘exotic weapons’ to meetings with extraterrestrials, we’ve put together some of the weirdest below.

UFO testing

Area 51 has long been rumoured to be America’s main base for testing captured and crashed UFOs.

At the heart of this theory is the Roswell Incident.

This was in 1947 when an occupied flying saucer was allegedly recovered from a crash site near the New Mexico town.

The UFO and its inhabitants were said to have been taken to Area 51.

The 1996 documentary Dreamland featured a 71-year-old mechanical engineer who claimed he worked on a flying disc simulator used to train US pilots.

It was based on a crashed extraterrestrial flying saucer, according to the film.

But others who have worked there say testing of captured aircraft was restricted to Soviet-built MiG fighters.

Rumours increased when the base was used to test Oxcart, the code name for the CIA-ordered Lockheed A-12 reconnaissance plane.

Annie Jacobsen, author of the book Area 51: An Uncensored History Of America’s Top Secret Military Base, explains: “The shape of Oxcart was unprecedented, with its wide disc-like fuselage designed to carry vast quantities of fuel.

“Commercial pilots cruising over Nevada at dusk would look up and see the bottom of Oxcart whizz by at 2,000-plus mph.

“The aircraft’s titanium body, moving as fast as a bullet, would reflect the sun’s rays in a way that could make anyone think: ‘UFO!'”

Dissections of dead aliens and interrogations of living ones are also said to have been carried out at Area 51.

There is, however, no evidence to support this claim.

‘Weather control’

Huge areas of the US suffer water shortages.

There are frequent disputes between farmers, ranchers and householders over access to water for irrigation, animals and domestic uses such as filling swimming pools and watering lawns.

Meteorologists at Area 51 are thought to have experimented with cloud seeding, where chemicals are dropped into clouds from planes to try to make them produce rain.

A separate section is said to have tried producing hurricanes and storms that could be directed at enemy countries.

Trailer – Above Majestic – The Implications of a Secret Space Program

FOR TICKETS TO THE FREE SCREENING – https://disclosurefest.org

On September 10th 2001 Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld announced that $2.3 trillion dollars could not be accounted for within Department of Defense expenditures. The very next day on September 11th building 7 of the World Trade Center in NYC collapsed, at free fall speed despite receiving minimal damage. This very same day, DOD staffers were working on tracking the mystery of the missing trillions when the Pentagon’s budget analyst’s office was destroyed in the same attack. This day in America’s history is known as 9/11.

The mystery remains. Where are the missing trillions?

MJ-12 or “Majestic 12” refers to a clandestine group of elite military and corporate figureheads. Appointed by Harry S. Truman in 1952, they were to manage and handle all information related to Extraterrestrial Craft retrieval and the reverse engineering of technology.

How were these compartmentalized and unacknowledged Special Access Programs funded over the decades, what technologies have they developed and at what cost to humanity?

Above Majestic is a shocking and provocative look at what it would take to hide a multi-trillion dollar Secret Space Program from the public and the implications this would have for humanity. Viewers will be guided through an accelerated game of connect the dots as Jordan takes a deep dive into the origins, technologies, history, cover ups, conspiracies, testimony and research that goes beyond and Above Majestic.

Above Majestic features some the most prominent and prolific authors, researchers, whistle-blowers and disseminators in the movement for Truth and Full Disclosure.
