'Possessed' woman howls in chillingly deep voice during exorcism in the Philippines

Duwendes, or duendes, are fairy or goblin-like mythical creatures from Latin American and Filipino folklore
This incredible video claims to show a woman undergoing an exorcism after being 'possessed by goblins'.

The original clip, filmed in the Philippines, shows more than seven minutes of an exorcism performed on a woman, possibly a teenager.

She can be seen mumbling and screeching while sat in a chair, her eyes rolling about and bulging in her head while a look of shock appears on her face now and then.

The video shows her, arms outstretched, as she breaths deeply and speaks in a bizarre, deep voice.

A man then approaches her and puts his hand on her head, apparently starting the exorcism.

Surrounded by other men and women he begins talking to the woman as he 'rids her' of the 'demon'.

Later he and the others douse the woman in a liquid, thought to be holy water.

Are deep, underground military bases responsible for the window-warping booms in Sonora, California?

For years now, residents of Sonora, California have been hearing a window-shaking loud and so far officially unexplained BOOM! that always happens between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. daily.

Inquisitr reports that the explanation floating around Sonora from a local geologist/teacher is that an Army Depot in Hawthorne, Nevada, all the way across the state and behind a mountain range which disposes of old munitions like bombs, might be what residents have been hearing.

But do they have so many old bombs to dispose of that they do it daily every single day even on weekends and holidays without fail for years? Why would Sonora, California of all locations near Hawthorne be the seemingly most affected city of all?

Besides, even people who work at the depot aren't hearing the booms regularly (via ABC News):

SOTT Exclusive: New X-Files blows it on the truth and reality of alien abduction - and why it matters - Part I

Is the truth in there?
In 1993, the X-Files TV show premiered on the Fox channel in the US. Contributing to its immediate and rather large popularity was its deliriously entertaining mix of mystery, sci-fi, paranormal, horror, conspiracy and humor. A huge fan base grew that responded to many of the strange stories, giving serious credence to the show's motto that "the truth is out there''; that things were going on which the general population was not being informed about. The X-Files beckoned its audience to learn the truth along with its attractive and complex protagonists, FBI special agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. But of all the themes the show concentrated on, and was best known for, it was its serious dramatic exploration of the phenomenon known as alien abduction that was its strongest and perhaps most important.

Let's consider the time: the early-to-mid 1990s. In the US at least, the ubiquitous large-eyed alien that first appeared to a wide audience in 1987 with Whitley Strieber's Communion was everywhere, in public spaces and presented in media of all kinds. The image was simply unavoidable. It was there when you went to the supermarket; when you opened a magazine; when you watched something on TV; and it was there on a billboard sign on the highway. It was easy to dismiss this barrage of alien imagery as just another marketing fad. But I think there's a more plausible reason: mainstream society was beginning to acknowledge something quite big and hitherto hidden from conscious awareness.

The phenomenon didn't come out of nowhere. By that time, in addition to Strieber's iconic book cover, we had films like Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the television series V, and many other films and shows like the well known Twilight Zone episode "To Serve Man" - which suggested that aliens may not be all that warm and fuzzy. More significantly however, in the years leading up to when X-Files premiered, and thereafter, we began to see more books like Strieber's by authors like Ray Fowler, Budd Hopkins, Karla Turner, David Jacobs and John Mack. Many others also attempted, in some cases quite successfully, to make sense of all sorts of bizarre and terrifying interactions individuals were having, seemingly with beings not of this world. The experiences described and recalled were with creatures whose appearances, technology and abilities were utterly strange by human standards and could only be properly understood as 'alien'. Well, not all of them. But we'll get to that.

Enter the X-Files.


Woman receives terrifying phone message from ghost that haunted her childhood home

© Unknown
Most people have received a creepy voicemail at least once in their life. Often times they can be attributed to prank calls, technical problems, or a good old fashioned butt-dial, but once in awhile they can come from somewhere else.

After missing a series of telephone calls from her elderly mother's landline, a woman known only as Judy played back the recorded messages on her answering machine only to receive a terrifying shock. The garbled voice whispering on the other end of the line sounded all too familiar, like a ghost from her past. Literally.

According to Judy, her childhood was the scene of frightening displays of paranormal activity. Her sister would often collapse and speak in tongues, mysterious noises plagued her home, and at once point the activity in the house got so bad, a priest was actually called in to do a blessing on the property. All of these incidents seemed to stem from their bathroom, where a ghostly voice would whisper her name from the shadows.

More 'Unidentified Flying Objects' caught on camera above Concord, East Coast

A local filmmaker recorded strange lights above the Red Blazer Restaurant on Manchester Street on Saturday night

Screenshots from video taken on Jun 16, 2016, of orbs above the sky in Concord near Manchester Street
The skies above New Hampshire's capital city continue to dazzle with amazing - and interesting - unexplained phenomenon, and last night was no exception.

Pedro Pimentel, a local filmmaker, who works at the Red Blazer Restaurant on Manchester Street, was outside in the parking lot at around 11 p.m. on July 16, 2016, and recorded three "unidentified flying objects," in this case, pulsing orbs, in the night sky above the restaurant.

Pimentel posted the raw video on his Facebook site.

(Editor's Note: The video contains language that might be offensive to some since the eye witnesses were shocked by what they were seeing).

Mexico: Are UFOs tampering with volcanos?

Photo of alleged UFO at Popocatepetl - Date: 07.16.2016
An increase in volcanic activity is directly proportional to an increase in UFO sightings.

We are dealing with anomalous objects shaped like disks, cigars or spheres flying over the volcanos without suffering any ill effects, as they appear to be impervious to the high temperature in the crater or the ash it gives up.

According to experts, an aircraft would plummet in a matter of minutes when it comes into contact with these elements, as its moving parts would become worn down. Thus, we are clearly faced with a very advanced technology. Various researchers have the videos and photographs taken by the public at large, who have immediately shared any oddities on social media. Cameras placed in the vicinity of the Popocatepetl volcano monitor the colossal natural formation 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They have shown strange objects traveling along a specific heading and exact altitude, leading ufologists to believe that their goal may be to monitor our planet's natural activity. Contactees believe that "extraterrestrials" are engaged in a prodigious effort to place a "plasma-based technology" within volcanic cores to keep them from erupting.

It should be stressed that putative aliens are not under any obligation to help us, and if they do so, what is it they want in return? A matter we should always keep in sight.

A family of 4 in southeastern Oregon on Sunday released footage containing what they called a "Bigfoot" creature.

Jason Dixon, his wife, son and father were recording a video in front of Wildhorse Lake on Saturday when they spotted the human-like figure.

The 20-second-video shows Dixon's father speaking to the camera, being held by his grandson, as Dixon is heard in the background regarding the unknown "animal". A biped can be seen in what appears to be a squatting position by the edge of the lake as it brings water to its mouth.

What is it? Bizarre, winged, fairy-like creature found in Mexico

© L.A. Marzulli
I wasn't going to write about this. I was trained as an attorney and I am skeptical by nature, and so I generally don't like to write about things that I can't prove. But in the case of this bizarre winged creature, a couple of factors changed my mind. First of all, we actually have physical evidence which has been scientifically tested. When it comes to things like this, people are always crying out for some real physical evidence, and now we have some. Of course the existence of evidence does not mean that we can necessarily find answers to all of our questions, but at least we have something to work with. Secondly, a highly respected researcher named L.A. Marzulli has spent a great deal of time extensively investigating this case. I have personally interacted with L.A. Marzulli, and I have followed his work for years, and so I know how credible he is.

Earlier today, I visited L.A. Marzulli's blog, and I was astounded by what I saw. There in living color was a bizarre winged creature that doesn't bear any resemblance to any animal that science currently knows about. You can view it for yourself on his blog right here.


Non-verbal autistic child demonstrates telepathic abilities

© youtube screenshot
What we label as autism covers a vast spectrum. One autistic child may be able to communicate perfectly and perform normal daily life tasks, while others can barely move, and still others can't communicate at all. You also have children under this label known as autistic "savants" who show extraordinary abilities. This is why it's more commonly referred to as autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

Some savants are able to perform extreme mathematical calculations in their head, similar to a calculator or computer, and others have remarkable artistic ability spanning across a variety of subjects. The list of abilities seen in savants is long, and one ability that could one day be added to that list is telepathy.

Unfortunately, it's commonly believed that the autistic children who lack movement and communication are 'not there.' Yet some evidence suggests they are not only aware, but have greater mental abilities than the average person. The communication barrier may be preventing them from sharing that with us, but perhaps we've been missing something?

Alien-faced crop circle appears in Surrey, UK

A new crop circle has appeared in Reigate Hill, Surrey according to a recent report. While the reports are still recent and not much is known about the circle, including specific details about the formation that could tell us more about how it got there, this one is quite fascinating in design.

Why talk about crop circles? As we will discuss below, they are a phenomenon that simply can't be ignored. Formations show up every single year and come with great mystery, even in the scientific realm. Many do not realize some of the amazing things that are happening inside crop circles that blow the board and rope theory out the window.

"Some of these formations are so immense and complex as to defy reason. And after all these decades, none of the perpetrators have been caught in the act of making any of the truly extraordinary formations." - Richard Dolan, historian, academic, author, and one of the world's leading UFO researchers (source)
