AUSTRALIA: A GREAT BIG "NEVADA" DOWN UNDER
Australia is the land that time forgot. It drifted off into its
continental isolation aeons ago, and a localized evolution
occurred. For example, there are giant jackrabbits of
astonishing size -- called "kangaroos" (as if that fools anyone.)
The Bass Strait area is known for mysterious happenings. In
1920, strange lights were seen there, and a ship, the S.S. Amelia
J., vanished without a trace. A search aircraft similarly
vanished at this time. 
The deep cover Australian Intelligence service, the Australian
Security and Intelligence Organization (ASIO), was born as a
child of British Intelligence in 1948. This was at about the
same time as the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) was
created. ASIO has two known branches: intelligence and
But what exactly would the Aussies be using their own spy agency
for, you might wonder. The idea of Australian spies lurking
behind the scenes in Istanbul, Beirut, and Moscow is hard to
imagine. Super-secret organizations such as CIA and ASIO all
seem to have sprung up right after World War II. Their cover
rationale has been that they were needed to fight Communism. But
was the Red Menace such a sudden precipitator that, in a few
short years, it caused a skyrocketing growth in covert "national
security"-type organizations? I suspect there was more involved.
A "Mr. D." (pseudonym) contacted Stan Seers of the Queensland
Flying Saucer Research Bureau (QFSRB) in 1959. Mr. D. said he
was with ASIO and showed credentials to prove it. He put out
feelers, asking Seers if he would "play ball" with ASIO. They
would give Seers certain info, from time to time, regarding
"Unusual Aerial Sightings" (UAS). In return, presumably, ASIO
would exert control over Seers. Seers asked for a little time to
think it over. 
Seers had assumed that it would be all right to consult with
other members of QFSRB regarding the ASIO offer. He later
learned otherwise. The ASIO plan had actually been to deal with
only Seers. But Mr. D. had neglected to emphasize that to Seers.
After Seers went ahead and consulted with his group, Mr. D.
became furious. 
However Mr. D. "rolled with the punches." He pretended to be an
ardent UAS (UFO) enthusiast, and cozied up, individually, to
members of QFSRB. He also insinuated distrust of Seers into the
group. Within a year, former close friends in QFSRB had grown
mistrustful of one another. Seers later claimed that similar
tactics had been used by ASIO against other UFO groups in
In 1968, the QFSRB set up special motion picture cameras in a
location known for unusual aerial phenomena. The cameras were
designed to be self-activating, triggered by presumed UFO
activity. On March 4th, an unknown aerial event got the cameras
rolling. The film was retrieved, hand-delivered to the post
office, and mailed to Kodak of Melbourne to be processed. QFSRB
personally saw to it that the film was properly posted and put
directly into the mailbag. But unfortunately, ASIO had their own
agent placed inside the Kodak processing department. Two weeks
after mailing, QFSRB received an empty packet back from Kodak.
"Had QFSRB forgot to include the film in its original mailing?"
wondered the film lab. 
On the ground at North West Cape, Western Australia, is America's
super-secret National Security Agency (NSA). But what is our NSA
doing in Australia? Couldn't the Aussies be handling whatever it
is without an encampment of NSA in their midst? What are U.S.
bases (forts), such as Pine Gap, doing way down under in
Australia? What exactly are we "protecting" Australia from? Is
it, even today, Communists inspiring this fear, or is it
"something else" -- "something," for example, that caused pilot
Frederick Valentich to just plain disappear while flying in the
previously-mentioned Bass Strait area on October 21, 1978? 
Pine Gap is the largest spy base in the world, and it's in
Australia of all places! (But then again, the enormous outback
region there is like a giant Nevada, so it makes sense.) Former
Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam was going to name names
of CIA personnel at Pine Gap, so CIA just evicted Mr. Whitlam
right out of office, in 1975.  Pine Gap reportedly has huge
underground facilities (as do the Pentagon and the White House,
by the way. The White House is said to have "many, many levels
=below= the basement... that keep going down and down." )
Some sources even contend that Pine Gap is simultaneously
operational in the 3rd, 4th, and 5th dimensions. 
So you thought Australia was just Crocodile Dundee (now
mysteriously replaced by a look-alike double in the Subaru
commercials), funny-talking people ("Put a shrimp on the
barbie"), and a few rock and roll bands. That's what they want
you to think. Australia is the mother of all Area-51s, disguised
as just a bunch of sheep-farmers.
