A bizarre conspiracy theory that emerged online a few years back continues to gain traction. It was the subject of discussion on a number of conspiracy theory forums this week.
The perplexing theory, described by some enthusiasts as the "greatest conspiracy theory of all time," claims that a "magnetic anomaly" opened up an interdimensional "stargate portal" in the Gulf Of Aden, one of the busiest waterways in the world between Yemen in the Arabian Peninsula and Somalia in the Horn of Africa.
Soon after the alleged stargate portal opened up, a mysterious alien UFO spacecraft came through it, according to conspiracy theorists.
The concept of a stargate portal is derived from science fiction. The device provides a means of traveling between points in space in an instant. Conspiracy theorists fear that a stargate portal that opens up inside or near Earth could expose human civilization to invasion and takeover by evil space aliens or demons from another dimension or parallel universe.
According to conspiracy theorists, the extraordinary, otherworldly event, the alleged opening up of a stargate portal in the Gulf of Aden, drew the attention of the world military powers, including the U.S., Russia, and China. The countries sent naval fleets to the area, Top Secret Writers reported.Some conspiracy theory sources claimed that highly classified information about the alleged stargate portal was leaked through a document published by WikiLeaks as part of the Global Intelligence Files.
The Global Intelligence Files consist of more than five million emails, dated July 2004 to December 2011, obtained from Texas-based Stratfor, an international private intelligence and security firm that consults for leading corporations and world governments.
A report on the files was allegedly submitted to President Vladimir Putin of Russia by Admiral [Nikolai?] Maskimov, commander of the Russian Northern Fleet.
Despite stories that the information was sourced from WikiLeak's Global Intelligence Files, there was no evidence backing the claim as there have been no original reports about a "stargate portal" in the Gulf of Aden outside the well-known Russia-linked sources of online rumor.
But conspiracy theorists argued that the reason why the report appeared only on "alternative news sites" was that Western governments had warned the Western mainstream media not to report it, according to the blog Mission Galactic Freedom.Several versions of the fantastic tale have emerged online since 2012. But the different versions agree on some major points.
According to Admiral Maskimov's report submitted to President Putin, late in the year 2000, U.S. personnel at the U.S. naval base in Djibouti in the Horn of Africa noticed the formation of a mysterious vortex in the Gulf of Aden. According to the conspiracy theory blog, Unexplained Things Are Out There, the vortex was small and weak and remained stable at the time.
However, in November 2008, scientists raised an alarm that the spiral vortex was expanding rapidly and threatening the world. The U.S. government panicked and sent a message to top military powers for assistance in fighting the threatening phenomenon.
The top nations responded by sending naval forces with scientists, engineers, and technicians to the Gulf of Aden. The nations that responded included traditional allies of the U.S., such as Canada, Britain, and several EU countries.
U.S. traditional foes, such as Russia and China, also rushed their navies to the area.
And as panicked world governments converged on the Gulf of Aden, the alleged vortex continued expanding rapidly, causing major earthquakes in the Gulf of Aden, the first in the area in modern times, according to conspiracy theorists.
Multiple reports in the conspiracy theory blogosphere referred to the alleged vortex variously as an "electromagnetic vortex," a "mysterious magnetic vortex," "spiral magnetic field or wormhole," a "strange magnetic anomaly," a "geomagnetic anomaly," an "interdimensional anomaly," and an "intergalactic stargate."The responding nations, according to conspiracy theorists, concealed the true purpose of their presence in the Gulf of Aden behind a false flag operation to protect global maritime interests from the threat posed by Somali pirates, Metro reported.
"The 'sheeple' – that's you and me – believe that warships have gone to the Gulf of Aden to fight piracy… but that's just a massive cover-up."The English-language Russian conspiracy theory website Pravda was one of the first to report the story, and soon, a gaggle of conspiracy theory blogs and websites were elaborating on the story creatively.
Different theories were proffered to explain what caused the stargate phenomenon to open up in the Gulf of Aden.
One theory claimed it was caused by evil "space aliens" bent on world domination and destruction. Another theory claimed it was caused by CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments. According to conspiracy theorists, the CERN LHC experiments spun out of control causing Western governments to panic.The "space alien" theory and the CERN LHC theory were not mutually exclusive because conspiracy theorists believe that the CERN LHC experiments are being directed clandestinely by evil alien races, such as the Reptilians who control the "Shadow Government;" an alleged top-secret coterie of maniacally evil power hungry elite who control world affairs behind the scenes.
Admiral Maskimov's report allegedly recommended to Putin that although the vortex was a Frankenstein monster creation of the Reptilian alien-backed Western powers, it was in Russia's interest to join forces with the Americans to ward off an attack on our planet by malevolent Reptilian "extraterrestrial forces."
Some theorists claimed that the stargate phenomenon was a black project under an overacting world-domination plan by the Secret Shadow Government that included genetic experiments conducted in underground facilities in collaboration with extraterrestrials races, such as the Reptilians and the Tall Grays.
The purpose of the evil Nazi-style genetic experiments was to create a new human-alien hybrid species that will replace humans when they go extinct as planned.
