Joseph Farrell joins Whitley Strieber to close out 2016 and welcome 2017 with a show that speculates about why Patriarch Kirill of the Russian Orthodox Church, US Secretary of State John Kerry and astronaut and Mason Buzz Aldrin might have suddenly taken trips to Antarctica within just days of each other.

Is there any significance to this? Listen as Joseph explores what might be behind the three visits.

Then, in the second have of the show discussion turns to Donald Trump and what the Trump Revolution means and why Trump has announced that he is re-opening the 911 investigation.

At the end of the show, Whitley Strieber announces Dreamland’s theme for 2017: the Year of the Soul. Throughout the year on Dreamland, we will be concentrating on the one thing about us that science, the media and the intellectual culture say doesn’t exist: the soul.

Based on a lifetime of inner search and close encounter, Whitley has a different view: not only does the souls exist, it is what matters the most about us. The building of a strong soul is why we are alive.

  1. Guys – and you know I love
    Guys – and you know I love you, this site, this topic, this discourse.
    But I’ve spent quite a bit of time working with the NSF and the USAP in Antarctica, and really, what’s going on down there is a whole lot of science. The reason for those visits are twofold: one – looking for programs to support or cut. There is $250M spent yearly just on support work, and countless millions on astronomy, ecology, atmosphere. If you want to protect or assault our nation’s investment in climate science, go to Antarctica (or north). The poles feel climate change first, and the pointy end of most of our research goes on down there.

    The second reason VIPs go to Antarctica is because it’s very cool and they can. Aldrin went independently as a tourist, not with the US program. He was hauled out of there by the US Military because – that’s who provides air transport for the US program. The NY Air National guard provides flight services to Antarctica. And yes, you read that right – the New York Air National Guard flies US Antarctic Program members to US facilities in Antarctica.

    The reason Aldrin had to be taken north is pretty simple, altitude sickness. The south pole is at 9800ft altitude geographically, but due to atmospheric phenomena, the effective altitude can be as high as 12,000ft. That is, the air you’re breathing at the US South Pole station is as thin as if you were on the top of Pike’s Peak. When you get out of the plane at Pole station, the cabin actually depressurizes like opening a can of soda.

    Add to the thin air the fact it’s the south pole, and it’s, well, cold. There’s a pretty significant physiological impact that cold and thin air has on someone.

    When you’re in the USAP and you arrive at the pole station they insist you spend the entire first day resting, irrespective of what shape you’re in. Some people suffer life threatening embolisms within hours of arriving. In any case, if you’re an 86-year old person, this is a pretty significant stress and it doesn’t surprise me in the least that despite his storied past, the 2016 Aldrin simply couldn’t physiologically withstand the impact of being suddenly deposited at 12,000ft -50F weather .

    Why would Kerry be there? Well to commune with and support the climate scientists who will certain suffer under the Trump regime.

    And is there CIA/NSA/etc. spook work going on in Antarctica? Absolutely. There are places near the McMurdo station that is strictly off-limits to the science and support community and we are briefed on that when we arrive (Check out pictures of Arrival Heights sent back by USAP participants on Facebook/YouTube/etc.) Spy satellites tend to be in polar orbits and there are certainly downlink stations in Antarctica, and there are personnel with astronomically high security clearances working there.

    So, while the conversation is scintillating, Whitley, and while I find most of these topics absolutely fascinating, I have some personal experience with this one and I think you guys could possibly be reading a little more into this than there is, which is entirely terrestrial.

    In any case, Merry Xmas and thanks for a great show as always. Looking forward to more in 2017

    Slave labor pool?

    What about the slave brain pool? The Nazis also found scientists and professors undoubtedly in the death camps. If you were a professor and given the choice, ‘die here digging trenches, or die working at a blackboard’?
    How would you pick?

    I think the ignoring of the rust belts peoples needs, all over the world, has been a deliberate tactic to foment hate and anger. Progressive ideas to help have been obstructed over and over. The powers now have a base of people willing to pledge allegiance to whatever despot promises them the moon and justifies their bigotry. Our world will burn under this fascism.

    Great Show and ending to the year. Merry Christmas and happy new year to everyone.

    If each one of us choose action that is positive and have no fear we will find the truth and be OK. God (what ever that is) will be a lamp unto our feet not headlights to see down the road. But it is fun to speculate.

    1. positively

  7. What a pleasure and a treat
    What a pleasure and a treat to hear Dr. Joseph P. Farrell on Dreamland. If you want to explore more of what this brilliant man has to share subscribe to his website as well as Dreamland. Webinars on the history and ideology of the so-called “ideology of peace” and many other topics, member vidchats, dialogues, podcasts and more, make a rich and worthy resource for thinkers. Dr. Farrell’s “News and Views” is also fabulous on the free section of his website and also on YouTube. His public Blogs are not to be missed! Whitley mentioned that Dr. Farrell will be back for an interview about his new book, “Hidden Finance, Rogue Networks and Secret Sorcery” which is an awesome read! “The Soul” theme for 2017 is a wonderful idea!

  8. Merry Christmas and Happy New
    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to All of you and keep up the good work!!!

  9. Whitley, you are at the top
    Whitley, you are at the top of your game! I love this… Merry Christmas!!!

    Happy New Year!

  10. Happy New Year !!!
    Happy New Year !!!

  11. So, Whitley and Joseph
    So, Whitley and Joseph Farrell, while listening to this interview and when you both mentioned Patriarch Kirill, my brain registered “Krell” as in “THE KRELL” from the movie…..Forbidden Planet. Other then my little brain slip, I thought this to be a most excellent/insightful interview. Thank you.
    In the classic 1956 science fiction film Forbidden Planet, the extinct race of advanced beings of the planet Altair IV are known as the “Krell”. The Krell had reached a stage of technological and scientific development so advanced that they were able to construct a vast underground machine with virtually unlimited power — a machine that could turn thoughts into reality and project that reality anywhere on the planet.

    Also, I too want to wish each and everyone a most BLESSED CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR.

  12. What an interesting
    What an interesting show.

    Whether there is some kind of secret base down there or a room full of uncovered secrets, there does appear to be an astonishing amount of secrecy surrounding Antarctica.

    I respect IceOwl’s take and he may be right. There does seem to be an unusual amount of secrecy concerning Antarctica though. Anyway, who knows, maybe there’s a secret Space Launch facility down there.

    Merry Christmas everyone. Let’s keep discussing stuff like this like crazy and enjoying every second of it.

    I don’t know what I would do without this community.


  13. Joseph Farrell is always
    Joseph Farrell is always interesting, and his books are fascinating too. I have lived with high strangeness much of my life, but it literally took off during and after 911. The predicted ‘shift’ in 2012 was really small potatoes compared to how reality shifted after September 11, 2001.

    Yes, let’s talk Texas and its connections to fascism…or not. All 50 states have their own ‘stuff’ going on, but the fascist bent that has occurred here in state government is hard to fathom. The ‘Texas Miracle’ (great economy, jobs, blah, blah, blah) is no miracle at all, and in terms of how this state treats public education, minorities, women, the poor, and anyone who is not affiliated with big business and the Good-Ol’-Boy-Gun-Toting-Bible-Thumping network, is shameful considering the sheer number of ‘good Christians’ supposedly hanging out at the governor’s office and the state capitol. I was born and raised here, and my family has been in Texas since 1835. My kids and grandkids all live here, and I am seriously concerned about their future. Our former governor has been tapped as energy secretary in the Trump administration, and with no real credentials in that field (former agriculture commissioner and a degree in animal science, lobbyist, and not the brightest crayon in the box either). I think if you take a good look at what’s going on here in Texas (and N. Carolina), you may get an idea of what could happen on a national level over the next few years. Fasten your seatbelts!

    Thanks Whitley for bringing up the German American Bund here in Texas…It reminded me again of my mother and her experience growing up here in Texas. She lived in Orange Grove, TX for several years during WWII and her high school years. She has mentioned to me many times that her family of Scots-Irish were the only family living in Orange Grove at that time that did not speak German. All of her classmates spoke German, and I have often wondered how she felt being surrounded by German-speaking classmates as WWII was playing out, but it never occurred to me to ask her about that aspect. That’s a family story worth knowing and understanding. (Although, oddly enough, she told me just the other day that having been through the depression and WWII, she has never feared for our country quite like she does now.)

    There is always hope, and many, many good people out there and here at Unknown Country, and we are all here at this time for reason, and that may be by assisting in shining the light into the darkest corners of reality to get to the truth.

  14. Everything changes, and
    Everything changes, and transforms, all the time.

    We’re all friends, down here. Yes we are, in spite of all this theatre.

    I love you all. I feel you. I see you. Your emanations are worthy and build a brighter, more resonant tomorrow.

    Christian civilisation is worth fighting for, but it may mean thinking differently to succeed.

    There are people out there, a small group, that would see some religions take power over others, to enable global genocide. Reducing numbers is not in the Great Architect’s plan.


  15. so who are we talking to in
    so who are we talking to in Antarctica? Any suggestions that address what Putin is doing via The Russian Orthodox Church and why Kirill would be sent to Antarctica. Any reference material to read on this and the Romanov family. what is so unique about the change we are going to have to go through and why does it have to be under people who are tyrants? what is the answer? who to trust. “Who do the the Middle Class trust?”

  16. I discovered Dr. Farrell on
    I discovered Dr. Farrell on with Georgeanne Hughes (RIP). I love their laughter and sense of humor.

  17. correction:

  18. Hi Whitley. Yes you are
    Hi Whitley. Yes you are absolutely right there IS something going on in Antarctica. You and your audience can learn more from listening to David Wilcock on his show on INCREDIBLE things going on !

  19. I have said for years to my
    I have said for years to my children and other family members that
    antartica is were atlantis is now.
