It’s almost spring! That means the bees come out. If you see a huge cluster of bees, call a beekeeper. Do not call a bee exterminator please. The bees are not hostile. They have no eggs or honey to defend when you see them like this.
They’re stopping for a quick break.
Please don’t spray them. Contact a beekeeper and they will come out and take them! Swarms will soon be popping up across the state! They’re just looking for new homes, let a beekeeper rehome them for you!
SAVE THE BEES!
(You can Google or search Facebook for beekeepers in your area.)
So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours.
Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life.
Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide. Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place.
Show respect to all people and grovel to none.
When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way.
Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.
Full Disclosure Event is referring to the highest level of extraterrestrial disclosure to earthlings that reveal the most detailed scenarios of our true hidden extraterrestrial human Galactic History and not the manipulated NAA version of Archontic Deception Strategy used to control the mainstream historical records to enslave the human population since the Sumerian-Egypt Invasion. Humans would be briefed beyond just knowing about the existence of the Extraterrestrial races, crafts and cooperative agreements made with earthly world governments, additionally, humans would be reeducated to know about NAA groups, Secret Space Programs, Human Trafficking, Mind Control, Transhumanism and AI agendas, DNA and genetic manipulation programs on planet and off planet, how earth, human resources and technology are used as bartering to trade for a variety of off planet civilizations and extraterrestrial species. Full Disclosure Event includes revealing the Power Elite groups and Negative Aliens that have abused power on earth and are required to restore energetic balance to make amends with the crimes they have made against humanity.
Different ET Races and their Guardianship and genetic modification programs, Breeding Programs, MILABS, Transhumanism and other ET agendas (malevolent and benevolent) involved in the grand earth experiment on co-evolving Consciousness and Polarity Integration in our Universe, Galactic Wars, Galactic History and hidden Extraterrestrial involvement on earth and how they have used the veil of secrecy to manipulate and influence all worldly human affairs, societies and belief systems (social experimentation), Hidden advanced technologies made available that would completely change the earth 3D paradigm with revealing free power and energy systems, reverse of aging and disease, end of poverty and slavery, clean air, food and water, etc.
Quantum Mechanics as the basic foundation to comprehend Ascension ( the descension of our spiritual-energetic bodies into our physical bodies through the process of progressive Kundalini awakening at the base of our spine which moves up to the Crown) and the reality of multidimensional Consciousness existing throughout all living intelligent energy systems, knowing about the true nature of reality, such as Stargates ,Ley Lines, Geomantic Structures, and the Sacred Geometry used in writing creation code to create Blueprints that direct Spectrum of Frequency and control DNA and genetic expression of all living things.
If more people had access to this information without being threatened, attacked or persecuted it would allow many more people to come out and tell the truth. By hiding this information and continuing to promote lies and deception it allows people that are working to support Ascension or disclosure related topics to continue to be harassed, targeted, intimidated and even brutalized. This is another reason why disclosure is so important. It would remove a huge burden of threats and attacks to those of us that support disclosure to the population of this planet. If people had disclosure information they would be much more willing to be open to comprehending the laws of nature and also to be able to see how the current Death Culture was engineered to violate those laws in order to enslave the people. Much of what we see harming people in the world today could be stopped with only common sense and the ability to reduce some selfishness and greed.
Contents 1 Battle for Disclosure 2 Disclosure Imminent 3 Global Human Trafficking and Off Planet Trade 4 World War II Timelines 5 Informed Consent 6 Power Elites or Cabal 7 References 8 See also Battle for Disclosure Humanity is enduring a hidden multidimensional battle for Disclosure which is gradually happening as the Collective Consciousness shifts into higher dimensional planes as the result of the Ascension Cycle. It is evident that there is a hijack of the disclosure movement in order to gain total control over how that particular content is being shared with the public. This is occurring via the spreading of familiar narratives and the same Propaganda tactics that are used for the purpose of Psychological Manipulation of the intended audience and the key players. For propaganda to be effective it has to have a mouthpiece, there must be key players or persons in positions of power with significant control over mass-communication media who are thought to have credibility with a large audience that makes them money.
Controlled Opposition is the predictable manipulation tactic of placing key people in key positions and into leadership roles of a particular movement, who many times have suddenly appeared and offered the public incredible facts or amazing nuggets of truth. Maybe it is a pundit personality looking to gather a large online following through disseminating the cabal wars through the QAnon movement. Maybe it’s a guru personality offering DNA Activation and the ability to manifest anything you want. As a result of the sensationalism, marketing or other methods to deliver this level of information, they gain power and influence from the amount of people that have gathered, along with the online clicks and money that is spent on their products or watching them at events. Power and influence are forces gathered through which they become a Pied Piper, a person that is celebrated, worshipped or made into a hero. Seemingly leading gullible people into any direction, when ultimately, they were placed there as a wolf in sheep’s clothing to derail and hijack the original goals of that movement. The strategy of Controlled Opposition works best under circumstances in which the masses are gullible, credulous, lack Critical Thinking and are unable to connect the dots and see how the actions and inaction or manipulation of the information from the controlled entity is actually benefiting the controlling entity.
The Inorganic Black Holes are rips in the time space fabric, which weaken the planetary atmosphere and allow much more access to Negative Alien interference and dark force infection into our world. Clearly, the NAA were well aware that greedy Controller humans would abuse the technologies, from the trade agreements, setting the stage for the next advancement of technological warfare against the earth during the critical years after 2012. For many years the continued Mind Control and intimidation tactics towards making global war, spreading fear and poverty consciousness, while distributing disinformation through the mass media, has been to keep the human population distracted and dumbed down. Meanwhile, the greedy antics and power abuses of the Power Elite would remain hidden, allowing diversion for a full scale infiltration of corporate conglomerate control into the highest chains of command in the world governments. By maintaining strict codes of secrecy on penalty of death, and aggressively hiding the extraterrestrial problem from the general public, the military industrial complex, corrupt governments and corporatocracy have handed the inhabitants of earth to the NAA on a silver platter. This is why full extraterrestrial disclosure to the masses is critically important. As long as this agenda remains hidden, it generates deeper and deeper parasitic infection into the earth that harms all inhabitants.
Global Human Trafficking and Off Planet Trade There is no currency or financial system that is used between space faring civilizations so everything is based on bartering. Some ET’s are interested in some of the Earth’s Art (again some of our most famous missing historical art pieces are in off world collections), Luxury Items like Spices/Chocolate, Animal and Plant Life while many others are interested in trading their technology and biological specimens they have obtained elsewhere for Human Beings. These Humans are used for many purposes including manual slave labor, sex trade, engineering/manufacturing (we are well known for the abilities some of us have with certain technical skill sets). There are some of the ET’s that use Humans as food resources in various ways.
The Secret Earth Governments and their Syndicates discovered that a large amount of humans were being taken off the planet by various ET’s anyway so they decided to find a way to profit from it and have control over which people were being taken. In prior arrangements they were made promises of receiving technologies and biological specimens for allowing groups to abduct humans but the ET’s rarely delivered on their promises. Once they had developed the advanced infrastructure (ICC) in our Sol System along with advanced technologies (that some of the thousands of ET groups traveling through our system were now interested in obtaining) and now had the ability to deter most unwelcome guests from entering Earths airspace the Cabal/ICC then decided to use human trafficking as one of their resources in interstellar bartering.
Full Disclosure is necessary to reveal the full scope of human slavery, which extends off planet and into many other civilizations of which earth humans, many that are children, are used for sex and trafficked. In most all reasons behind the massive profits for human slavery, sexual slavery and free labor for the NAA is involved.
World War II Timelines What has remained hidden is that the NAA had massive influence on the cause of instigating World Wars over the powers accessing advanced alien technology for weaponization, technological mind control, space colonization, massive human Blood Sacrifice and soul harvesting on the Astral Plane, and for world domination between the government cabals. The end of World War II began the massive organizational efforts for setting up galactic conglomerate criminal enterprises hidden in some of the Secret Space Programs to administer to mass levels of Human Trafficking for slavery, supersoldiers, and sex, earth humans are used as a commodity for trade with off planet civilizations. The Power Elites refusal to reveal to the earth population the existence of extra-terrestrials, extra-dimensional entities and human off planet colonies and conglomerates hiding advanced technological abuses, while involved in committing serious genocidal crimes against the earth inhabitants, blocks access to Informed Consent of earth activities with intentional malice, deceiving every inhabitant on earth, thus, is harboring the Galactic Human Slave Trade. This allows these nonhuman and human criminal syndicates to continue to abduct multiple thousands to millions of human adults and children for secret military projects, sex slavery, food, play-pets, free labor, genetic modification and an assortment of NAA agendas designed to enslave and torture humanity.
Informed Consent Given the importance of Informed Consent for the protection of Human Rights and as an ethical doctrine, it is applicable to Universal Laws in the petition of demanding factual truths of accurate events to be revealed to the human population in the event of full disclosure. At this time on the planet earth in the larger global events designed for world slavery and extradimensional entities genocidal agendas, informed consent in this larger context is non-existent. Therefore, all people interested to serve the disclosure movement can benefit through the comprehension of the higher principles of informed consent and the lack thereof, to open dialogue on the ethical implications this has made against the human race, as the demand for full disclosure grows stronger and becomes more unified. At this point, the lack of informed consent as the result of non-disclosure of true and accurate events on this planet, establishes gross negligent abuse, which can directly lead to multiple species genetic annihilation as well as other devastating consequences. 
Power Elites or Cabal The Power Elite are a small group of people who conjure Black Magic through dark rituals that are used for maintaining contact with the NAA, in order to control the entire planet through the manipulation of the Collective Consciousness through fear based programming that is transmitted via Mind Control.
I would also read this message from Countess Belenoff (Illuminati) to the PATRIOTS of the US in relation to the Presidency. Everything down here is a HIGHLY COMPLICATED MULTI-(DIMENSIONAL)-LAYERED (CRUEL) GAME and we have to understand it all. We don`t have to agree or even engage – but as higher dimensional beings we see both sides. And in doing so we have to acknowledge that on both sides are good and evil. https://glamiscalling.org/2020/11/
You know, what is sad about this, is the people aren’t really stupid. They are innocent in a large part, and trusting. That poor chicken. Many times he tortured an animal or person to prove his “superiority”.
On one occasion, so it was narrated, Stalin called for a live chicken and proceeded to use it to make an unforgettable point before some of his henchmen.
Forcefully clutching the chicken in one hand, with the other he began to systematically pluck out its feathers. As the chicken struggled in vain to escape, he continued with the painful denuding until the bird was completely stripped.
“Now you watch,” Stalin said as he placed the chicken on the floor and walked away with some bread crumbs in his hand. Incredibly, the fear-crazed chicken hobbled toward him and clung to the legs of his trousers.
Stalin threw a handful of grain to the bird, and it began to follow him around the room, he turned to his dumbfounded colleagues and said quietly, “This is the way to rule the people. Did you see how that chicken followed me for food, even though I had caused it such torture? People are like that chicken. If you inflict inordinate pain on them they will follow you for food the rest of their lives.”
The way I first heard this, Stalin had used the term “stupid people” but I missed that meeting so I can’t say for sure.
Stay inside. Shut your businesses down. Do as you’re told. We will take care of you. Here’s $600.
Excerpt out of it: ……”The RULES say they must tell you (in some form) of what they intend to do here – lest they be cast down by Prime Creator himself – for not showing you what they are attempting to do.
But it goes far, far deeper, and in order to walk through all of this you are going to need a very strong stomach indeed, because the LIE IS SO BIG – that it will be difficult to assimilate at first.
The hidden Mass, where the ACTUAL mass happens, is usually held in sub-sub basements under major churches or major cathedrals, and this is where there is a true and real BLOOD SACRIFICE! It is the occult version of what they are doing above ground! (as above, so below – as below, so above).
In that “hidden mass” – which is the true and real reason for the allegorical blood sacrifice that the mass(es) are participating in above ground – they actually do lay out young, helpless, and naked little children on a large stone alter – both boys and girls – usually between the age of 2 years to 6 years old, and then first sexually rape them to produce within that child the thoughts, the ideas, and the strong emotions of “sex” (sssek -sssssssss) – just before those unfortunate kids are ritualistically sacrificed!
At this time, the participants of this “hidden” MASS, are allowed (or perhaps even required) once again, to “eat of the body” and “drink of the blood”! However this is not imaginary body and blood – it is all TOO REAL.”
Do you know why we have all the “SCI-FI-Films”, Horror Movies and strange A-Listers like Lady Gaga, Led Zeppelin, Beatles and thousands more??? Because the cosmic RULES say they must tell you (in some form) of what they intend to do here – lest they be cast down by Prime Creator himself – for not showing you what they are attempting to do.
The shutting down of the churches makes sense. It is a battle between “powers” unseen by us, unknown, unheard of, occult.
When the churches fail and their sacrificing comes to an end … who will then be “in charge”? Do you think it will be humans? Nah … humans are doing nothing to protect themselves or their children …
It will be other galactic entities.
Still holding humanity and all other life upon this planet as slave.
Different, yet the same.
Fear … and the willingness to be so loose sexually feeds this system of slavery.
This is the “core of the problems” in this 3D realm – humans are responsible for all of this and as long humanity is not willing to see that they themselves are “the monsters” too …. Highest Councils are not “pleased” how humanity as a whole has “developed” – and not just because of obvious crimes like murder or rape. Also about all the nasty stuff- ongoing – greed, lust, sexual “habits”, no compassion and empathy for others just for themselves, always judging somebody ….. and the list is endless. NO cosmic event will change this. This is already the 4th human earth seed after three catalytic events of annihilation – all caused by the human race. I am really sorry for this words – but this is how it is. And the only “rescue mission” is to work on ourselves – no higher power will rescue humanity. ~ Karina
Please forget what you learned in school and have an open mind.
Generll info The Fall: Earth is in HU-1 Tara is in HU-2 Gaia is in HU-3 HU – Harmonic Universe, each has 3 Dimension, so we are now in the first HU in the 3Dimension
Project Turaneusiam-1 (T-1) 560 MYA (million years ago) Project Turaneusiam-1 (T-1) begins. Many ET + Meta-ET’s created a master race to serve as guardians of Planet Tara. Founders of project T-1 =3D Meta-ET from HU-4 & HU-5 Lyrans HU-3 =3D Seed Race of T-1 Sirian Council HU-2 =3D Directors/Overseers of T-1 Elohim HU-3 =3D race of beings created by Lyrans to oversee Sirian races in HU-2. T-1 was made up of 12-subraces (genetics from 12 ET races). 12-subraces are: Bra-ha-man Dhr-ah-men Atoni Trin-iten Azurtan Celtos Addami Yutarans Cerrasz Nexack-tai Melchizedek Manipulation/Interbreeding by UNRELATED ET races caused major digression/division. T-1 split into two main strains: Alanians (Beli-Kudyem) Lumians (Adami-Kudmon) Alanians sought control over Luminians – experimented with power generation thru Tara’s core – Lumians asked for assistance from Sirian Council HU-2 and Elohim HU-3. Lumians set up “Council of Mu”, moved large numbers across ocean to small continent with tiny/simple/unorganized culture – Continent named “MU”. Elohim HU-3 interbred with Lumians (Cerrasz strain) to purify genes – new strain called Ceres/Seres – Seres went on to become Priesthood of Mu. Alanians =3D Templar Solar Initiates – combines forces with Sirian Anunnaki and refused to listen to Sirian Council. Sirian Anunnaki =3D opposed / anti-Sirian Council. Group of Alanians not happy with TempSolar defected to Mu. Ceres + Lumians interbred with these Alanians – new breed known as Priesthood of Ur. Sirian Rebellion War – p/hood of Ur lost battle to TempSolar and retreated underground. Impending Tara Grid implosion – many evaded to other star systems.
Tara Cataclysm 550 MYA Alanian deep underground power crystals exploded – Tara grid blown apart – Tara detached from morphogenetic grid. Tara now missing portions of it’s grid – could not continue evolution/ascension to HU-3 to merge with Gaia D7 – frozen in time-tracks until repaired. The fragments of the grid that fell apart, fell in vibration, got sucked thru a black-hole at the centre of Tara’s sun and re-emerged in a galaxy HU-1. These fragments broke up into 12-pieces, which densified into planets in HU-1. 550 MYA Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Maldek (imploded) Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto, Nibiru (has very long orbit) and the Sun (which was a HU-2 planet that fused with a HU-1 star). This event is interwoven with other earth events/history, eg: Fall of Man, Fall of Adam, Flood. The Fallen souls of Tara became trapped in HU-1 and a rescue mission was required. Rescue mission was formulated by the Ceres, which the priests of Ur would implement. Assistance was provided by Sirians, Pleiadans, Elohim, Lyran, Lumians, Alanians, Ceres. This consortium was known as the Covenant of Palaidor, working thru the HU-5 Breneau Rishi and further assistance by the Metagalactic core/gestalt known as the RA Confederacy. Of the 12 RA sub-groups, only 4 approved the rescue mission (Azurites, Aton-A, Amonites, Brigihidelt). The Brigi are currently incarnating into earth as members of the ascended master family of Vairigi. Several other sub-groups also assisting are Azar-Azara of HU-2 ET race known as the Zhar Confederacy. The Ur-Tarranates time travelled to Earth HU-1 after the fall of Tara and with help of the Sirian Council, transmuted into pure energy becoming one-consciousness, serving as the Morphogenetic field for the 12-DNA T-1 race prototype on Earth. The Morphogenetic Field of consciousness is known as the Sphere of Amenti. Amenti = 3D part of Tara’s core connected to portals on MU, placed on Earth would link back to Tara’s pre-fall time-cycles. When grids blow apart they lose portions of history stored in genetic cellular memory. With out this the planet can not evolve/ascend into the next HU.
Project Turaneusiam-2 (T-2) 550-250 MYA many species where seeded by HU-1 ET’s (plants, animals, insects)… Also some ether beings spent time here… There were wars fought by races who did not want this rescue mission to succeed. Once Earth was secured the Ur-Tarranates of the Sphere of Amenti began birthing on Earth. This was known as the T-2 experiment, the 12-tribe seeding. 5-Cloister races emerged known as the Palaidorians. These races were less dense and did not possess gender, their bodies contained 8-DNA strands (active). They were the guardians for DNA evolution. The five Cloister Races were: Ur-Antrians (brown skin, DNA Strand-2) Breanoua (Red skin, DNA#3) Hibiru (White skin, DNA#4) Melchizedeks (Yellow skin, DNA#5) Yunaseti (Black, DNA#6) These cloistered races left no remains on earth, as they were here during an Anti-particle universe cycle. Sphere of Amenti = Hall of Records (Time/Portal) Each planet in our solar system holds a part of Tara’s HU-2 Morphogenetic field. Tara HU-2 can not ascend to become Gaia HU-3 unless all these planets in our HU-1 solar system complete the full manifestation of these morph-fields. The pattern of the Morph-field appears as a standing wave of blue colour with a pale shade of green. This Blue flame is earth’s portion of Tara (Staff of Amenti) Earth’s own flame is Orange-Gold. Tara’s own flame is Blue-Green (known as the Gates of Ivory, Pearly gates) Gaia’s own flame is Violet-Gold Metagalactic Core’s own flame White-Gold
Earth Human Race 1st Seeding 1st Seeding of the 3rd World (25 MYA to 5.5 MYA) 5 x C/Races entered earth in different locations. Each race physically created 6 Male + 6 Female adult humans who bred to seed the earth population at the time. (all up 60 humans) 1st emerged was the 3rd root race, Lumanians. Lumanians =3D Brown =3D Ur-Antrians =3D 15MYA =3D DNA#2 2nd emerged was the 4th root race, Alanians. Alanians =3D Red =3D Breanoua =3D 9MYA =3D DNA#3. 5.5 MYA interbreeding with HU-1 ETs caused genetic digression, thus loss of immortality and not able to transmute/ascend. Members of the Sirian-Anunnaki HU-2 and other ET + Meta-ET’s wanted to stop/halt earth’s evolution (T2/12-tribe experiment) due to the fact they did not want the digressive elements of humans returning/ascending to Tara. Other’s had ulterior reasons, as they wanted earth for themselves. Basically all hell broke lose – electric wars of pure energy fought in local galaxy and atmosphere. Those humans remaining ascended to Tara, and those with the digressive gene could not/perished. Earth was almost a goner until HU-5 Breneau intervened.
Earth Human Race 2nd Seeding After the Electric wars, the 3rd+4th root races had to be re-seeded but this time carrying the seal of amenti within their genes. This seal of Amenti stopped humans with digressed gene form accessing the Sphere/Hall of Amenti. The 6th sub-frequency-tone of Dimension-1 was removed from DNA strand-1 Thus stopping humans incarnates from plugging/accessing into the 7th DNA strand. thus could not assemble all strands in order to ascend/transmute (pass the Blue-Flame). When the body reached full gene capacity it would diminish/die and go thru a cycle of re-incarnation. (7th strand DNA blue-flame allowed unlimited energy-renewal of the body). The idea was to re-birth 3-times, once thru the root races which were RR3 + RR4… and then have to wait for Root race 5 to be seeded/emerge before one could incarnate as a RR5 human to collect DNA strands 5-6-7 (strand-7 released/shed the seal of amenti) in order to ascend/access-codes to HU-2 Was discovered due to electric wars a more serious problem had occurred. 5 MYA shift in earth grid occurred causing a quick freeze. After this shift the earth vibration dropped and could no longer safely hold the sphere of amenti.. In order to avoid destruction, the Elohim HU-3 removed the Sphere of Amenti to a safe place in 4D. Due to this Root Races 3 and 4 could no longer assemble their 4th DNA strand. The burden/responsibility for assimilating the fragments of RR3 and 4 was put upon Root Race-5 (Aeiran/Aryan) of the Hibiru cloister. Human evolution was stunted 5.5 MYA until Sirius-B came along to the party. An artificial portal bridge was constructed between the core of Sirius-B, the Sphere of Amenti in D4 and Earth’s core in D2. Some souls of the 2nd seeding merged with Sirius-B and hybrid strain of consciousness was created called the Kantarians. This 2nd seeding portal-bridge was known as the Hall of Amorea in the 3rd seeding. During Atlantis it was known as the 3rd Eye of Horus. 4 MYA human hybrids who found exile in the HU-1 pleaidian star system were known as the Europherites. They interbred with the Kantarians to be known as the Dagos (dark brown skin). 4 MYA Dagos brought to earth to re-seed. 3.7 MYA Ur-Antrian cloister3 (DNA1-2 + 7-12) 3 MYA Lumarians Root Race3 (DNA1-2) 3 MYA Breanoua cloister4 (DNA1-2-3 + 7-12) 2.5 MYA Alanians RR4 (DNA1-2-3) 1.5 MYA Hibiru cloister5 (DNA1-2-3-4 + 7-12) 1.27 MYA Ayrians RR5 (DNA1-2-3-4) 65000 YA Melchizedeks Cloister6 (DNA1-2-3-4-5 + 7-12) Current Muvarians RR6 (DNA1-2-3-4-5) Future Yunaseti Cloister7 (Full 12-strand) Future + Euanjhechi (Paradisians) DNA1-5 + code 6-12) Melchizedeks are free from the DNA filters/Seals of Amenti+Palaidor. They established the Essene brotherhood and priesthood of Melchizedeks.
She was repeatedly rejected, belittled, patronized, and underestimated. Born in Baltimore on April 6, 1906, she spent her childhood summers milking goats.
She was expected to marry into privilege and settle into the role of wife and mother, according to A Mighty Girl.
But, she had other ideas.
She at first wanted to become a diplomat, but women accounted for only six of the 1,500 U.S. diplomats at the time and she was repeatedly rejected.
After an accident in Turkey, she lost her left leg below the knee,” according to Intel. “She was fitted with a wooden prosthetic leg, which she affectionately nicknamed ‘Cuthbert.’”
Because she was a woman, she was rejected by the United States Foreign Service. Because she had a disability, she was turned down by the Department of State.
So, she did what many women and people of color did during that time – she went to France, where she became an ambulance driver at the start of World War II.
After meeting a British Intelligence Officer, she joined the newly-created Special Operations Executive (SOE), becoming the second female agent to be sent to France.
“After limited training, this one-legged American woman was among the first British spies sent into Nazi-occupied France in 1941,” according to NPR. “She posed as a reporter for the New York Post.”
Her name was Hall, Virginia Hall.
She was the “real-life female James Bond,” wrote Dusica Sue Malesevic.
She “was the baddest broad in any room she walked into,” according to the Hartfield Book Company. “When the State Department proved to be a sexist boys’ club that wouldn’t allow her in, she gave the finger to society’s expectations of women and became a spy for the British.”
She is “one of the most important American spies most people have never heard of,” according to NPR.
This is part of a continuing series on the Peace Page for Women’s History Month.~~~~~“The odds of success, let alone survival, were not high for Virginia Hall when she was sent to spy behind enemy lines during World War II,” according to Sonia Purnell, author of Hall’s biography.“
No one in London gave Agent 3844 more than a fifty-fifty chance of surviving even the first few days,” wrote Purnell. “For all Virginia’s qualities, dispatching a one-legged thirty-five-year-old desk clerk on a blind mission into wartime France was on paper an almost insane gamble.”
But, Hall “proved exceptionally adept at eluding the Gestapo,” according to A Mighty Girl.
“She learned how to change her appearance within minutes depending on whom she was meeting,” Purnell wrote. “Altering her hairstyle, wearing a wide-brimmed hat, putting on glasses, changing her makeup, wearing different gloves to hide her hands, or even inserting slivers of rubber into her mouth to puff out her cheeks: it all worked surprisingly well.”
She “emerged as a fearless guerrilla leader who helped liberate whole swathes of France,” according to Time.
“She armed and trained three battalions of French resistance fighters for sabotage missions that helped paved the way for the Allied invasion,” according to A Mighty Girl. “One of her many radio reports shows the breadth of her missions; in it, she states that her team has destroyed four bridges, derailed freight trains, severed a key rail line, and downed telephone lines. By the war’s end, Hall had spent over three full years operating undercover behind enemy lines and, in the words of an official British government report at the end of the war, she was ‘amazingly successful.’”
“There’s a saying that the actress Ginger Rogers did everything her on-screen dance partner Fred Astaire did except backwards and in heels,” according to writer Raquel Laneri. “Well, Virginia Hall . . . did everything that the fictional James Bond would do, except in real life and with one leg.”
She also “masterminded jailbreaks for captured agents, mapped drop zones, reported on German troop movements, set up safe houses, and rescued escaped POWs and downed Allied pilots.” “She was able to play on the chauvinism of the Gestapo at the time,” said Craig Gralley, a retired CIA officer who has written his own book about Hall — a novel, “Hall of Mirrors”. “None of the Germans early in the war necessarily thought that a woman was capable of being a spy.”
“When James Bond was still in diapers, Virginia Hall was behind enemy lines, playing a dangerous game of cat and mouse with Hitler’s henchmen,” according to the Hartfield Book Company, which published “Code Name Badass: The True Story of Virginia Hall” by Heather Demetrios.“
The Nazis called her ‘La Dame Qui Boite,’ the lady who limps,” according to the Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame. “Hunted by Gestapo Chief, Klaus Barbie (“The Butcher of Lyon”), [Hall] had to make a harrowing last-minute escape over the snow-capped Pyrenees, dragging her prosthetic limb, ‘Cuthbert’ behind her.”
“Barbie ordered ‘wanted’ posters of Hall that featured a drawing of her above the words ‘The Enemy’s Most Dangerous Spy — We Must Find And Destroy Her!’, wrote Greg Myre of NPR.~~~~~“Hall was rewarded by becoming the only civilian woman of the war to be decorated with the Distinguished Service Cross for “extraordinary heroism,” according to Time. She was also made a Member of the British Empire (MBE) and was nominated for the French Croix de Guerre, according to the Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame.
After the war, Hall “joined the newly formed CIA, which succeeded the OSS, and worked there for 15 years, mostly at headquarters.”
British author Sonia Purnell wrote Hall’s biography, titled, “A Woman of No Importance”.
Explaining the irony in the title, Purnell said, “Through a lot of her life, the early life, she was constantly rejected and belittled. She was constantly just being dismissed as someone not very important or of no importance.”
“I do think that she became America’s greatest spy of World War II,” Gralley said.
“Virginia Hall, of Baltimore, became our country’s first and arguably greatest spy of the Second World War,” according to the Maryland Women’s Hall of Fame. “During the course of her astounding career, and despite a significant physical disability, she served as an intelligence officer for the British Special Operations Executive, the U.S. Office of Strategic Services, and the Central Intelligence Agency.”
“CIA officers have said that the techniques she developed 80 years ago to build up the French Resistance still inform the agency’s missions today, including Operation Jawbreaker in Afghanistan before and after 9/11,” according to Time.
“Her story is on display at the CIA Museum inside the spy agency headquarters in Langley, Va. — but this is off-limits to the public.” “She was the most highly decorated female civilian during World War II,” said Janelle Neises, the museum’s deputy director.
“She was a woman very much ahead of her time,” said Judith Pearson, author of “The Wolves at the Door,” about Hall’s World War II activities.
Years later, when admirers talked about her adventures, Hall would simply reply, “Not bad for a girl from Baltimore.”
Those of us old enough to remember when the phone was wired to the wall, usually in the kitchen, can relate to this story. I loved this read.
When I was a young boy, my father had one of the first telephones in our neighborhood. I remember the polished, old case fastened to the wall. The shiny receiver hung on the side of the box. I was too little to reach the telephone, but used to listen with fascination when my mother talked to it.
Then I discovered that somewhere inside the wonderful device lived an amazing person. Her name was “Information Please” and there was nothing she did not know. Information Please could supply anyone’s number and the correct time.
My personal experience with the genie-in-a-bottle came one day while my mother was visiting a neighbor. Amusing myself at the tool bench in the basement, I whacked my finger with a hammer, the pain was terrible, but there seemed no point in crying because there was no one home to give sympathy. I walked around the house sucking my throbbing finger, finally arriving at the stairway.
The telephone! Quickly, I ran for the footstool in the parlor and dragged it to the landing. Climbing up, I unhooked the receiver in the parlor and held it to my ear. “Information, please,” I said into the mouthpiece just above my head.
A click or two and a small clear voice spoke into my ear.
“I hurt my finger…” I wailed into the phone, the tears came readily enough now that I had an audience.
“Isn’t your mother home?” came the question.
“Nobody’s home but me,” I blubbered.
“Are you bleeding?” the voice asked.
“No, “I replied. “I hit my finger with the hammer and it hurts.”
“Can you open the icebox?” she asked.
I said I could.
“Then chip off a little bit of ice and hold it to your finger,” said the voice.
After that, I called “Information Please” for everything. I asked her for help with my geography, and she told me where Philadelphia was. She helped me with my math. She told me my pet chipmunk that I had caught in the park just the day before, would eat fruit and nuts.
Then, there was the time Petey, our pet canary, died. I called, “Information Please,” and told her the sad story. She listened, and then said things grown-ups say to soothe a child. But I was not consoled. I asked her,
“Why is it that birds should sing so beautifully and bring joy to all families, only to end up as a heap of feathers on the bottom of a cage?”
She must have sensed my deep concern, for she said quietly,
“Wayne, always remember that there are other worlds to sing in.”
Somehow I felt better.
Another day I was on the telephone,
“Information,” said in the now familiar voice.
“How do I spell fix?” I asked
All this took place in a small town in the Pacific Northwest. When I was nine years old, we moved across the country to Boston . I missed my friend very much.
“Information Please” belonged in that old wooden box back home and I somehow never thought of trying the shiny new phone that sat on the table in the hall. As I grew into my teens, the memories of those childhood conversations never really left me. Often, in moments of doubt and perplexity I would recall the serene sense of security I had then. I appreciated now how patient, understanding, and kind she was to have spent her time on a little boy.
A few years later, on my way west to college, my plane put down in Seattle. I had about a half-hour or so between planes. I spent 15 minutes or so on the phone with my sister, who lived there now. Then without thinking what I was doing, I dialed my hometown operator and said, “Information Please.”
Miraculously, I heard the small, clear voice I knew so well.
I hadn’t planned this, but I heard myself saying, “Could you please tell me how to spell fix?”
There was a long pause. Then came the soft spoken answer, “I guess your finger must have healed by now.”
I laughed, “So it’s really you,” I said. “I wonder if you have any idea how much you meant to me during that time?”
“I wonder,” she said, “if you know how much your calls meant to me. I never had any children and I used to look forward to your calls.”
I told her how often I had thought of her over the years and I asked if I could call her again when I came back to visit my sister.
“Please do,” she said. “Just ask for Sally.”
Three months later I was back in Seattle. A different voice answered, “Information.” I asked for Sally.
“Are you a friend?” she said.
“Yes, a very old friend,” I answered.
“I’m sorry to have to tell you this,” She said. “Sally had been working part time the last few years because she was sick. She died five weeks ago.”
Before I could hang up, she said, “Wait a minute. Is your name Wayne?”
“Yes.” I answered.
Well, Sally left a message for you. She wrote it down in case you called. Let me read it to you. The note said,
“Tell Wayne there are other worlds to sing in. He’ll know what I mean.”
I thanked her and hung up. I knew what Sally meant.
Never underestimate the impression you may make on others. Whose life have you touched today?
