1942 ‘BATTLE OF LOS ANGELES’
BIGGEST MASS SIGHTING IN HISTORY?
Five years before Roswell, five years before pilot Kenneth Arnold’s landmark sightings of “flying saucers” in the Pacific Northwest, three years before the Battle of the Bulge, two years before D-Day, and years before the so-called “modern UFO era” had officially begun, there was the Battle of Los Angeles arguably the most sensational dramatic UFO mass encounter on record. [ Hatonn: Let us not forget the SQUADRON OF GLOWING DISC-SHAPED CRAFT, that floated in formation over your Washington State Capitol building—TWO WEEKENDS IN A ROW! This was when World War II was supposed to be ending! And there are newspaper published pictures of both events!]
The Battle of LA, by Jeff Rens
Wednesday, February 25, 1942
Imagine a visiting spacecraft from another world or dimension, hovering over a panicked and blacked-out LA in the middle of the night just after Pearl Harbor at the height of WWII fear and paranoia.
Imagine how this huge ship, assumed to be some unknown Japanese aircraft, was then attacked as it hung nearly stationary over Culver City and Santa Monica by dozens of Army anti-aircraft batteries firing nearly 2,000 rounds of 12 pound, high explosive shells in full view of hundreds of thousands of residents. Imagine all of that and you have an idea of what was the Battle of Los Angeles. [H: And this is what is planned in America, and for your world, the LAST ENEMY YOU WILL CONFRONT ON THE BATTLE FIELD—WILL BE EVIL INVADERS FROM SPACE! However, it will not be other worldly “aliens” who will be the aggressors, but your own governments making a last chance grab for all out Global Domination! This is what George Herbert Walker Bush’s “NEW WORLD ORDER” is all about, dear ones! And it did not begin with the Bush/Kissinger/Rockefeller Cartel—Adolf Hitler’s 2nd book was called “New World Order”. So, this so-called “alien agenda” has, indeed, been long in the making! Oh, by the way, let me remind you once again, that Hitler himself coined the phrase: “UFO”/”Unidentified Flying Object BATTALION”. Now, isn’t history fun?]
The sudden appearance of the enormous round object triggered all of LA and most of Southern California into an immediate wartime blackout with thousands of Air Raid Wardens scurrying all over the darkened city while the drama unfolded in the skies above…a drama which would result in the deaths of six people and the raining of shell fragments on homes, streets and buildings for miles around. [H: This was “collateral” damage, however, the One World Government/New World Order plans to PURPOSELY DESTROY some of your cities—AND BLAME EXTRATERRESTRIAL BEINGS! Can this truly be done to the citizenry of the planet? Indeed yes! It is being done with synthetic replicas (“clones”) right before your very eyes. But it will be the replicas of mutated monsters, with fangs and bat wings come to suck your blood, that will be introduced to the world, that will cause you to coward and run in fear—AT THE MERE SIGHT OF A “FLYING SAUCER”. Then, you will surrender your sovereignty to that United Nations POLICE FORCE—for your protection.]
Dozens of gun crews and searchlights of the Army’s 37th Coast Artillery Brigade easily targeted the huge ship which hung like a surreal magic lantern in the clear, dark winter sky over the City of the Angels. Few in the city were left asleep after the Coastal Defense gunners commenced firing hundreds and hundreds of rounds up toward the glowing ship which was apparently first sighted as it hovered above such west side landmarks as the MGM studios in Culver City. [H: This location in Southern California is also the home of “Hollywood”, and the television production community. And what do you think Steven Spielberg and George Lucas know about this New World Order, alien invasion plan??!!] The thump of the batteries and the ignition of the aerial shells reverberated from one end of LA to the other as the gun crews easily landed scores of what many termed “direct hits”….all to no avail. Here now, is what the night skies of LA looked like at the height of the firing….
New 24/7/00 photo enhancements and analysis shows the huge craft caught in the converging spotlights!
Pay close attention to the convergence of the search lights and you will clearly see the shape of the visitor within the illuminated target area. It’s a BIG item and seemed completely oblivious to the hundreds of AA shells bursting on and adjacent to it which caused it no evident dismay. [H: This is what happened to your NAVAL AIRCRAFT FLEET that pursued Hitler down into your Antarctica—WHEN YOU-THE-PEOPLE THOUGHT Hitler was dead! When in fact Admiral Byrd led an armada to defeat Germany at the so-called “End of the War” at Hitler’s fallback position, the underground caverns—AND INNER EARTH ENTRANCE WAYS! Incidentally, these mammoth entrance openings into the Inner Earth allow for attack on United States soil from BOTH THE NORTH AND SOUTH POLES OF YOUR PLANET! And, after Admiral Byrd limped back to Washington to report the naval disaster with the NAZI UFOs (Hitler’s new “wonder weapon”), the American Military High Command ordered NUCLEAR ORDANCES DROPPED, in first Antarctica, followed by the arctic pole! The excuse was “use the South Pole as a nuclear test site.” Well, KGB spies within your U.S. government (And you have a lot of them! For instance, THERE ARE MORE KGB OPERATIVES IN YOUR CIA THAN AMERICANS!), informed the Kremlin of your Pentagon’s nuclear attack plans. And then you were sent a very clear message. For two weekends in a row, the Capitol Buildings and White House were overflown by “flying saucers”, if you will, in military formation. The test site plans for the South Pole was immediately dropped. Look up “Operation High Jump”. Byrd talked to a newspaper in South America that quoted what the U.S. Navy encountered in their pursuit of NAZI SUBMARINES to Antarctica. By the time he was back in Washington D.C., the “death certificate” had been signed—for telling “a national secret”—and he was “suicided”. Cannot have the people find out that Hitler got away—and brought some “UFOs” with him to the South Pole—now can we?!] There were casualties, however, on the ground. At least 6 people died as a direct result of the Army’s attack on the UFO which slowly and leisurely made its way down to and then over Long Beach before finally moving off and disappearing.
In February, 1942, Katie was a young, beautiful, and highly successful interior decorator and artist who worked with many of Hollywood’s most glamorous celebrities and film industry luminaries. [H: It is not just Admirals and top CIA people, who get “wacked” (as your various mobsters say). Famous movie stars also are killed for bringing this “UFO Thing” to public attention. If you will look at each and every celebrity death, you will find they were involved in “spilling of the beans” moments before being “interviewed” before you the public. And we will examine, in detail, why so many have made their transition unto “death” of the body. And all in unusual circumstances!] She lived on the west side of Los Angeles not far from Santa Monica. With the outbreak of the war with Japan and the rising fear of a Japanese air attack, or even invasion of the West Coast, thousands of residents volunteered for wartime duties on the home front. Katie volunteered to become an Air Raid Warden as did 12,000 other residents in the sprawling city of Los Angeles and surrounding communities.
In the early morning hours of February 25th, Katie’s phone rang. It was the Air Raid supervisor in her district notifying her of an alert and asking if she had seen the object in the sky very close to her home. She immediately walked to a window and looked up. “It was huge! It was enormous! And it was practically right over my house. I had never seen anything like it in my life,” she said. “It was just hovering there in the sky and hardly moving at all.” [H: Chelas (students), this is ELECTRO-GRAVITIC/MAGNETIC PROPULSION. These craft utilize the Earth, or any celestial body; magnetic fields for hovering and flight. This technology was developed and invented by Nikola TESLA over a HUNDRED YEARS AGO. But you did not learn THAT in high school science class did you! However, Germany’s Adolf Hitler did make a treaty with an “alien nation”. Eisenhower also met with a group of other worldly beings—it was NOT with God’s HOSTS. We could have kept this little group out of your affairs. But when you make a deal with the devil—IN THE FORM OF MJ-12/MAJORITY TWELVE SECRET AGREEMENTS, your nation was sold down the tubes! These “Grey Men” or “Reptilian” entities are now “land-locked” and, as per Cosmic Universal Law, their punishment is not being allowed back into God’s Heavenly Realm. And it is your own HUMAN secret masters under the covers who hold your nation and world hostage! However, God IS ALLOWED TO PROTECT HIS PEOPLE AND GROUND CREW! So know that evil cannot compete with that which is of God. For the highest technology of the Cosmos belongs solely to God of The Creation and “His Heavenly HOSTS from afar”. Remember, the Bethlehem “Star” protecting the Christ Child, and the “Pillar of fire by night, and pillar of cloud by day” fighting Pharaoh’s army (as the story is told), were not just clouds and “fire in the sky”, and weird stars floating in the night time skies, waiting to help mankind! Stop believing the fairy tale, and look at your Holy Bible for what it IS. The biggest proof of what I bring is right before you. Satan, however, has a vested interest in keeping the sleeping Christian masses—asleep!]
With the city blacked out, Katie, and hundreds of thousands of others were able to see the eerie visitor with spectacular clarity. “It was a lovely pale orange and about the most beautiful thing you’ve ever seen. I could see it perfectly because it was very close. It was big!”
The U.S. Army anti-aircraft searchlights by this time had the object completely covered. They sent fighter planes up (the Army denied any of its fighters were in action), and I watched them in groups approach it and then turn away. [H: The South American newspaper reported similar actions as the Allied (U.S.) Navy planes approached, and ATTEMPTED to engage the Nazi “FOO FIGHTERS” (as the French pilots labelled the glowing light orbs, that shadowed and buzzed their propeller-driven airplanes). The Naval aircraft fleet was decimated, and stories were conjured to explain away the massive human vessel and aircraft casualties. And the hiding of “the numbers” has now become a practiced art! You do not bat an eyelash at the announcement of “…war in the Middle East”…or Afghanistan, or Iraq, where “Only a few were killed.” However, you are no longer allowed to see or record the caskets coming back with the dropped American flag atop. Nor are you told of the actual KIA’s (Killed In Action), for that would not bode well with millions of American mothers, whose sons you need to have a military in the first place!] There [they] were shooting at it but it didn’t seem to matter. Katie is insistent about the use of planes in the attack on the object. The planes were apparently called off after several minutes and then the ground cannon opened up. “It was like the Fourth of July but much louder. They were firing like crazy but they couldn’t touch it.” The attack on the object lasted over half an hour before the visitor eventually disappeared from sight. Many eyewitnesses talked of numerous “direct hits” on the big craft but no damage was seen done to it. “I’ll never forget what a magnificent sight it was. Just marvelous. And what a gorgeous color”, said Katie.
“The object caught in the center of the lights like the hub of a bicycle wheel surrounded by gleaming spokes. The fire seemed to burst in rings all around the object.”
The ONLY description in the LA Times of the UFO, and a sense of the energy and emotion of that night, was found in this small sidebar article written by Times staff writer the day after the event.
CHILLY THRONG WATCHES SHELLS BURSTING IN SKY
By Marvin Miles
Explosions stabbing the darkness like tiny bursting stars…Searchlight beams poking long crisscross fingers across the night sky…Yells of wardens and the whistles of police and deputy sheriffs…The brief on-and-off flick of lights, telephone calls, snatches of conversation: ‘Get the dirty…’ That was Los Angeles under the rumble of gunfire yesterday.
Sleepy households awoke to the dull thud of explosions…”Thunder? Can’t be!” Then: “Air Raid! Come here quick! Look over there…those searchlights. They’ve got something…they are blasting it with anti-aircraft!” Father, mother, children all gathered on the front porch, congregated in small clusters in the blacked out streets—against orders. Babies cried, dogs barked, doors slammed. But the object in the sky slowly moved on, caught in the center of the lights like the hub of a bicycle wheel surrounded by gleaming spokes.
Speculation fell like rain. “It’s a whole squadron.” “No, it’s a blimp. It must be because it’s moving so slowly.” “I hear planes.” “No you don’t. That’s a truck up the street.” “Where are the planes then?” “Dun no. They must be up there though.” “Wonder why they picked such a clear night for a raid?” “They’re probably from a carrier.” “Now, I’ll bet they are from a secret air base down south somewhere.”
Still the firing continued. Like lethal firecrackers, the anti-aircraft rounds blasted above, below, seemingly right on the target fixed in the tenacious beams. Other shots fell short, exploding halfway up the long climb. Tracers sparked upward like roman candles. Metal fell. It fell in chunks, large and small; not enemy metal, but the whistling fragments of bursting ack-ack shells. The menacing thud and clank on streets and roof tops drove many spectators to shelter.
WARDENS DO GOOD JOB
Wardens were on the job, doing a good job of it. “Turn off your lights, please. Pull over to the curb and stop. Don’t use your telephone. Take shelter. Take shelter.” On every street brief glares of hooded flashlights cut the darkness, warning creeping drivers to stop. Police watched at main intersections. Sirens wailed enroute to and from blackout accidents. There came lulls in the firing. The search lights went out. (To allow the fighter planes to attack?). Angelinos breathed deeply and said, “I guess it’s all over.” But before they could tell their neighbors good night the guns were blasting again, sighting up the long blue beams of the lights.
The fire seemed to burst in rings all around the target. But the eager watchers, shivering in the early morning cold, weren’t rewarded by the sight of a falling plane. Nor were there any bombs dropped. “Maybe it’s just a test,” someone remarked. “Test, hell!” was the answer. “You don’t throw that much metal in the air unless you’re fixing on knocking something down.” Still the firing continued, muttering angrily off toward the west like a distant thunderstorm. The targeted object inched along high, flanked by the cherry red explosions. And the householders shivered in their robes, their faces set, watching the awesome scene. [H: And you don’t think the technology has improved in the past seven decades?! The capability of your government to present an “awesome scene” is beyond your comprehension! The truly “secret-secret” technology has been long perfected in those nice underground facilities. It is known as “The Panic Project”, and the thrust is to STAGE A MOCK (FAKE) INVASION FROM SPACE. Is this not unlike your biblical stories of fire and brimstone from above? What kind of “ancient technology” was the Noah’s Ark of the Covenant that laid waste to entire armies?? In ancient eastern Indian texts these are aerial battles of craft using beam weapons and fantastic technology, blasting each other out of the sky. Nuclear weaponry being detonated over cities and of “Gods” in metallic, gleaming vehicles that had the motion of a butterfly and could render itself invisible to human vision. So, today, when you add your own advancements of laser and holographic projection—PROJECT BLUE BEAM AND THE BLACK BIRD PROJECT—you truly can create the “Armageddon” scenario all by yourselves. Man does not need God or even evil aliens to destroy the planet! You are accomplishing that goal right on schedule!]
The following are excerpts from the primary front page story of the LA Times on February 26. Note that there is not a SINGLE description of the object even though it was clearly locked in the focus of dozens of searchlights for well over half an hour and seen by hundreds of thousands of people.
Army Says Alarm Real
Roaring Guns Mark Blackout
Identity of Aircraft Veiled in Mystery
No Bombs Dropped and No Enemy Craft Hit
Civilians Reports Seeing Planes and Balloon
Overshadowing a nation-wide maelstrom of rumors and conflicting reports, the Army’s Western Defense Command insisted that Los Angeles’ early morning blackout and anti-aircraft action were the result of unidentified aircraft sighted over the beach area. In two official statements issued, while Secretary of the Navy Knox in Washington was attributing the activity to a false alarm and “jittery nerves”, the command in San Francisco confirmed and reconfirmed the presence over the Southland of unidentified planes.
Relayed by the Southern California sector office in Pasadena, the second statement read: “The aircraft which caused the blackout in the Los Angeles area for several hours this a.m. have not been identified.”
Insistence from official quarters that the alarm was real came as hundreds of thousands of citizens who heard and saw the activity spread countless varying stories of the episode. The spectacular anti-aircraft barrage came after the 14th Interceptor Command ordered the blackout when strange craft were reported over the coastline. Powerful search lights from countless stations stabbed the sky with brilliant probing fingers while anti-aircraft batteries dotted the heavens with beautiful, if sinister, orange bursts of shrapnel.
City Blacked Out For Hours
The city was blacked out from 2:25 to 7:21am after an earlier yellow alert at 7:18pm was called off at 10:23pm. The blackout was in effect from here to the Mexican border and inland to the San Joaquin Valley. No bombs were dropped and no airplanes shot down and, miraculously in terms of the tons of missiles hurled aloft, only two persons were reported wounded by falling shell fragments.
Countless thousands of Southland residents, many of whom were late to work because of the traffic tie-up during the blackout, rubbed their eyes sleepily yesterday and agreed that regardless of the question of how “real” the air raid alarm may have been, it was “a great show” and “well worth losing a few hours of sleep.”
The blackout was not without its casualties, however. A State Guardsman died of a heart attack while driving an ammunition truck, heart failure also accounted for the death of an air raid warden on duty, a woman was killed in a car-truck collision in Arcadia, and a long Beach policeman was killed in a traffic crash enroute to duty. Much of the firing appeared to come from the vicinity of aircraft plants along the coastal area of Santa Monica, Inglewood, Southwest Los Angeles, and Long Beach.
In its front page editorial the Times said: “In view of the considerable public excitement and confusion caused by yesterday morning’s supposed enemy air raid over this area and its spectacular official accompaniments, it seems to the Times that more specific public information should be forthcoming from government sources on the subject, if only to clarify their own conflicting statements about it.”
“According to the Associated Press, Secretary Knox intimated that reports of enemy air activity in the Pacific Coastal Region might be due largely to ‘jittery nerves’. Whose nerves, Mr. Knox? The public’s or the Army’s?”
The following is an excerpt of an article appearing in Fate Magazine. Our special thanks to Bill Oliver of UFO *BC for transcribing and bringing it to our attention.
WORLD WAR II
By Paul T. Collins, Fate Magazine July, 1987
On Wednesday, February 25, 1942, as war raged in Europe and Asia, at least a million Southern Californians awoke to the scream of air-raid sirens as Los Angeles County cities blacked out at 2:25am. Many dozed off again while 12,000 air raid wardens reported faithfully to their posts, most of them expecting nothing more than a dress rehearsal for a possible future event—an invasion of the United States by Japan. At 3:36, however, they were shocked and their slumbering families rudely roused again this time by sounds unfamiliar to most Americans outside the military services.
The roar of the 37th Coast Artillery Brigade’s anti-aircraft batteries jolted them out of bed and before they could get to the windows the flashing 12.8 pound shells were detonating with a heavy, ominous boomp-boomp-boomp and the steel was already raining down. All radio stations had been ordered off the air at 3:08. But the news was being written with fingers of light three miles high on a clear star-studded blackboard 30 miles long.
The firing continued intermittently until 4:14. Unexploded shells destroyed pavement, homes and public buildings, three persons were killed and three died of heart attacks directly attributable to the one hour barrage. Several persons were injured by shrapnel. A dairy herd was hit but only a few cows were casualties.
The blackout was lifted and sirens screamed all clear at 7:21. The shooting stopped but the shouting had hardly begun. Military men who never flinched at the roar of rifles now shook at the prospect of facing the press. While they probably could not be blamed for what had happened, they did have some reason for distress. The thing they had been shooting at could not be identified.
Caught by the searchlights and captured in photographs was an object big enough to dwarf an apartment house. Experienced lighter-than-air (dirigible) specialists doubted it could be a Japanese blimp because the Japanese had no known source of helium, and hydrogen was much too dangerous to use under combat conditions.
Whatever it was, it was a sitting duck for the guns of the 37th. Photographs showed shells bursting all around it. A Los Angeles Herald Express staffer said he was sure many shells hit it directly. He was amazed it had not been shot down.
The object that triggered the air raid alarm had drawn 1430 rounds of ammunition from the coast artillery to no effect. When it moved at all, the object had proceeded at a leisurely pace over the coastal cities between Santa Monica and Long Beach, taking about 30 minutes of actual flight time to move 20 miles; then it disappeared from view. You can well imagine with what chagrin public information officers answered press queries. The Pasadena Office of the Southern California Sector of the Army Western Defense Command simply announced that no enemy aircraft had been identified; no craft was shot down; no bombs were dropped; none of our interceptors left the ground to pursue the intruder.
Soon thereafter US navy Secretary Frank Knox announced that no planes had been sighted. The coastal firing had been triggered, he said, by a false alarm and jittery nerves. He also suggested that some war industries along the coast might have to be moved inland to points invulnerable to attacks from enemy submarines and carrier-based planes.
The press responded with scathing editorials, many on page one, calling attention to the loss of life and denouncing the use of the coast artillery to fire at phantoms. The Los Angeles Times demanded a full explanation from Washington. The Long Beach Telegram complained that government officials who all along had wanted to move the industries were manipulating the affair for propaganda purposes. And the Long Beach Independent charged:
“There is a mysterious reticence about the whole affair and it appears some form of censorship is trying to halt discussion of the matter.”
“Although it was red-hot news not one national radio commentator gave it more than passing mention. This is the kind of reticence that is making the American people gravely suspect the motives and the competence of those whom they have charged with the conduct of the war.”
The Independent had good reason to question the competence of some of the personnel responsible for our coastal defense operations as well as the integrity and motives of our highest government officials. Only 36 hours before the Long Beach air raid, a gigantic Japanese submarine had surfaced close to shore 12 miles north of Santa Barbara and in 25 minutes of unchallenged firing lobbed 25 five-inch shells at the petroleum refinery in the Ellwood oil field. The Fourth Interceptor Command, although aware of the sub’s attack, ordered a blackout from Ventura to Goleta but sent no planes out to sink it. Not one shot was fired at the sub.
After the Ellwood incident had alerted all the West Coast defense posts to possible repeat attacks, these units were sensitive to anticipated invasion attempts. By Wednesday morning in the Los Angeles area they were ready to open fire on a boy’s kite if it in any way resembled a plane or a balloon. Secretary of War Henry S[+]imson praised the 37th Coast Artillery for this attitude. It is better to be a little too alert than not alert enough, he said. At the same time he delicately suggested that it might have been a good idea to send some of our planes up to identify the invading aircraft before shooting at them.
Planes of the Fourth Interceptor Command were, in fact, warming up on the runways waiting for orders to go up and interview the unknown intruders. Why, everybody was asking, were they not ordered to go into action during the 51-minute period between the first air-raid alert at 2:25am and the first artillery firing at 3:16?
Against this background of embarrassing indecision and confusion, Army Western Defense Command obviously had to say something fast. Spokesmen told reporters that from one to 50 planes had been sighted, thus giving themselves ample latitude in which to adjust future stories to fit whatever propaganda requirements might arise in the next few days.
When eyewitness reports from thousands searching the skies with binoculars under the bright lights of the coast artillery verified the presence of one enormous, unidentifiable, indestructible object—but not the presence of large numbers of planes—the press releases were gradually scaled downward. A week later General Mark Clark acknowledged that army listening posts had detected what they thought were five light planes approaching the coast on the night of the air raid. No interceptors, he said, had been sent out to engage them because there had been no mass attack.
Believing an aerial bombardment was in progress, some people thought they saw formations of warplanes [H: What do you think the REPORTS WILL BE TODAY with your so-called “ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY”!?! “UFOs” and “FLYING SAUCERS” BUZZ THE UNITED STATES CAPITAL! OR, LAND AT THE 40 YARD-LINE OF THE SUPER BOWL WHILE DETROIT IS WINNING THE FOOTBALL GAME!? What will the announcement be and where will YOU be when the “Aliens” attack the Earth? The CNN and Nightly News reports Will Not tell you the TRUTH regarding these STAGED EVENTS! And you will go back to Orson Well’s “War of the Worlds”, and the 1960’s “The Day the Earth Stood Still” motion picture (commissioned by The Central Intelligence Agency), and be stunned and paralyzed by fear at invading space creatures come to reap thy dying bodies! This is the “End Times” the Khazar “Jews” have brought upon you. However, God Aton’s people win in the “end”, and even Lucifer and his children, the “Jews”, know this! Right after this dissertation we will cover, once again, who these imposter “Jews” are who have brought your world to ruin in the name of the Anti-Christ/Anti-God!]
