Exorcists condemn Canadian children's book on summoning demons as seductive and dangerous


Comment: Here's the company behind the book, apparently Canadian. The gender-bender agenda literally wishes that demons 'step in' and take over humanity...

A group of international exorcists has raised the alarm about a new children's book teaching kids how to interact with and summon demons, saying the publication is not only a spiritual threat, but is a disguised attempt to lure young people into satanism.

"You don't mess around with demons. Whoever invites a child to summon a demon is like a person who puts a grenade in their hands to play with. Sooner or later the child will pull the pin and the bomb will explode in their hands," the International Association of Exorcists said in a statement last week.

"Whoever invites a child to summon a demon is telling them that it's possible to get help from a criminal to get something. Whoever invites a child to summon a demon is causing them to lose their identity and to be morally, psychologically and spiritually destroyed," they said, adding that those who invite children to summon demons are already "an 'ally' of the demons."

The Brown Mountain Lights - An unexplained 'paranormal' phenomenon that's gone on for centuries

brown mountain lights
What are "paranormal experiences"? I don't really understand the term anymore, it's used to describe events and experiences that are out of the ordinary, it implies that these events are not 'normal.' It's almost 2019, and more people are starting to become aware of the fact that "paranormal" experiences are actually quite normal, quite common, and well documented throughout history. We have evidence in the form of video footage, pictures, and actual physical evidence from several different supposed events. Not only that, 'paranormal' discoveries have been the subject of rigorous investigations by governments and researchers around the world. The 'Stargate' program in the United States, for example, was one that studied these experiences in order to use them for intelligence purposes, and they worked. Here's a great example from the Central Intelligence Agency's electronic reading room about an individual who was able to move solid objects through solid barriers, by simply using his mind. You can read more about that, in-depth, here.

Winged being observed at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport

Mothman
I was at the airport picking up a load at Nippon, I was already backed into a dock and was standing away from the truck smoking a cigarette while they loaded my truck. I was looking toward the runways, in the direction of the tunnel and that is when I noticed something that looked like a large bird standing just outside of the fence by the parking lot. It was not hard to miss because two street lamps were nearby. It looked like a person with wings that were stretched out and flapping. It was walking away from the fence toward the open field and then began to flap its wings and disappeared.
Investigator Notes:
I spoke with the witness via phone and was able to get a little more information regarding this sighting. The witness primarily speaks Spanish but was able to report this sighting with the help of his daughter and her boyfriend. The witness was standing away from his truck as it was being loaded smoking a cigarette when he said he caught movement out of the corner of his eye and saw the being standing near the parking lot and was illuminated by two street lamps.

The witness stated that the creature was about 7 feet tall using the fence as a point of reference. When I asked him how he was able to be so certain as to the height of this being, the driver stated he has been to this location multiple times and he estimates the fence to be about 8 feet high. Using the fence he was certain that the being was at least seven feet tall.

Comment: The Singular Fortean Society, 1/12/2019 Other recent sightings
This sighting location (O'Hare International Airport) is less than 15 miles west of Lake Michigan.

Several other sightings have been reported in the same area, including an October 30th sighting of a large, winged humanoid in Park Ridge, an October 29th report of a winged humanoid accompanied by several other beings, an October 19th sighting of a "giant-sized bat" outside of the Edward Hotel in Rosemont, an October 5th sighting of a "tall creature" with "bright red eyes" and "large wings" near Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, and a report from July of a six-foot-tall creature flying over the Des Plaines River near Rosemont, Illinois.

Mothman sighting
This is the latest news in a string of 'Mothman' sightings from within a few hundred mile radius surrounding Lake Michigan, including every state bordering the great lake. These sightings ostensibly began in the spring of 2017, but more historical accounts are being reported as more people become aware of the phenomenon.

Sightings of weird winged beings around Lake Michigan have been reported at all hours, often in or near a park, and around water. Witnesses consistently describe a large, gray or black bat or bird-like creature — although in a small number of cases the creature was described as insect-like — sometimes with glowing or reflective red, yellow, or orange eyes; and humanoid features such as arms and legs are often reported.

Many of the sightings are also of something seen only briefly or are described only as a flying creature with few details, which leaves open the possibility that a large avian being could explain some encounters. Sightings of anomalous avians, including thunderbirds and pterosaurs, are often reported in or near the same locations as those where witnesses have reported winged humanoids.

'Giant UFO' or drones over California town?

Object filmed over Minifee, CA
The object could have been taken for a drone or a skydiving vehicle, if not for a combination of facts: it didn't move and emitted no sound whatsoever.

The internet has of late been in a frenzy over a weird object hovering above the small California town of Menifee. Footage that first emerged on YouTube on 3 December, despite originally being shot on 19 October, sported a vast amount of lights, with the glow leading viewers to think it could be a drone lurking in the clouds.

Expedition Bigfoot' scours Oregon woods for signs of the mythical and elusive beast

A man crouches on the Oregon forest floor late at night, peering between the trees for signs of nocturnal life. The scene is pitch-black but his face and hands are visible in infrared footage, and he scans the landscape with a thermal camera, looking for a heat signature that would indicate he isn't alone.

Suddenly, a red blob emerges in the distance.

"Do you see that?" he whispers. "It's something big."

But could it be Bigfoot, North America's fabled apelike creature? That's the question this man — author and explorer Russell Acord — and his colleagues are trying to answer, in the new Travel Channel documentary series "Expedition Bigfoot," premiering tonight (Dec. 8) at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

More than 10,000 eyewitness accounts have described Bigfoot encounters in the continental U.S. over the past 50 years. Bigfoot even has an FBI file that was released to the public on June 5; in 1977, the agency examined 15 unidentified fibers that were suspected of being Bigfoot hairs. But the hairs were eventually found to be "of deer family origin," FBI Assistant Director Jay Cochran, Jr. wrote in a letter.

Now, Travel Channel searchers are hot on the trail of the bipedal beast, bringing the hunt to the Pacific Northwest, where about one-third of all "Bigfoot" encounters have taken place.

UFO hunter claims spike in sightings of 'snake-like objects' in US skies - speculation runs rampant

Cigar-shaped UFO
Over the last month, an elongated unidentified object, which reminded some of a cigarette or a snake, has been spotted in several US states, from California to Wyoming, and even Scotland. However, there is still no explanation of what it was or where it came from.

Numerous sightings of snake-shaped objects hovering in several places in the US, from Wyoming to Texas, have prompted conspiracy theories about the government secretly spying on people, The Daily Star reports. The claims were fueled by reports about one of them hovering over Dallas, Texas. According to the outlet, images of the "craft," which witnesses on the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) describe as "a black pipe" with a "dull metal colour," have now emerged, although they were initially taken in September.

The outlet reports that at least two people have independently said that they spotted the strange object that day.

Area 51 and CIA vets reveal what Cold War-era radar-tricking program has to do with recent UFO sightings

There's never a shortage of UFO stories, with arguments raging between skeptics and those who want to believe. But a pair of CIA and Area 51 retirees claims the mysterious sightings might have quite a prosaic explanation.

The mystery behind the unidentified flying objects was highlighted again recently when leaked videos - filmed by the US Navy's Super Hornet jets - popped up in the public domain, showing the military aircraft interacting with UFOs. The Pentagon had stirred up much hype among ufologists, officially saying that the viral clips actually depicted "Unidentified Aerial Phenomena" (UAP).

But for veterans of two of America's most secretive institutions, these sightings, at least, were not at all sensational. They claim the UFO encounters can be attributed to a top-secret radar-tricking program commissioned for the military, according to the Drive.

Ontario, Canada: Internet puzzled by mysterious howls coming from the woods

A series of strange and mysterious howls were recently caught on tape by a Canadian hunter, and netizens could not help but speculate about the nature of the sounds - with the craziest theories coming up, including those pointing to such legendary creatures as Sasquatch or Wendigo.

Gino Meekis was hunting grouse several kilometres from Sioux Lookout, Ontario on 3 October alongside his wife and grandson when the family heard the strangest and eeriest sounds, faintly resembling screams. The video, later posted on YouTube, has collected almost a million views, with people left guessing about who or what could have made these sounds.

Meekis, who was later approached for comment by Vice, is an experienced hunter accustomed to different sounds in the Canadian wilderness but even he was confused by the howls.

"When it let out the first scream, I thought it was a moose, but my mind changed when it screamed again and again", the hunter said. He began recording the shrieks almost straight away, as well as his grandson trying to mimic them. The family retreated to their vehicle shortly after the sounds appeared to move closer, as Meekis's wife became particularly scared of the noise.

"I've heard many different animals in the wild but nothing like this. I grew up hunting with my grandfather for the first 12 years of my life", Meekis said.

The secret séance rituals of America's largest Spiritualist community

rodgers

Medium Annette Rodgers leads a séance, allegedly with the help of her deceased daughter, Lauren.
Shannon Taggart was never a big believer in ghosts. But that changed in 2001, during one of her first visits to Lily Dale — a hamlet in southwestern New York state that's home to the world's largest spiritualist community.

The Brooklyn photojournalist was taken by surprise while watching a private reading with Gretchen Clark, a fifth-generation medium.

"All of a sudden, she started laughing at nothing," Taggart tells The Post. "Apparently the spirit of her brother was in the room and told her a joke."

"I told him not to interrupt me while I'm working," Clark explained to her client and then turned to an empty spot and yelled, "Chapman, we've talked about this!"

She composed herself and returned to the reading and then just as quickly turned back to Taggart.

"Margaret's here," Clark announced.

"Margaret? I don't know any Margaret," Taggart insisted.

Clark closed her eyes and listened. "She says 'Texas.' What does 'Texas' mean?"

Taggart instantly knew. "My great aunt Margaret lived in Texas and she'd died a few months earlier," Taggart says. "I'd totally forgotten. My whole body just tensed up. It was truly spooky."

That encounter was just the beginning of a spiritual awakening for Taggart, who would spend the next 18 years documenting mediums in New York as well as Essex, England, and Antequera, Spain. More than 150 of her photographs, many never before seen, are published in her new book Séance (Fulgur Press).

UFOs or satellites? A string of lights freak Hawaiians out

Hawaiian residents statewide see strings of lights in the sky for the second night in a row.
For the second night in a row, the skies over Hawaii have been lit up by a string of mysterious objects shimmering in the dark, many residents reported. Although a local outlet contacted the Federal Aviation Administration, there has been no official explanation yet.

Locals in Hawaii have reported en masse that mysterious near-perfectly ordered lights returned to the night sky after they first appeared the night before, Hawaii News Now has revealed.
"I was jumping up and down, freaking out like, 'What is that? What is that?' It was pretty weird. I couldn't make any sense of it", Kala Holiday told the outlet, while another viewer spoke about 20 to 25 lights "that resembled a Roman candle shot across the sky".

Comment: In the absence of official confirmation or denial from SpaceX, or any other official body, and given a hint of thought engineering, one has to wonder exactly what is going on.

When some of Elon Musk's other projects are taken into consideration, thought engineering in regards to the subject of UFO's doesn't seem too wide of the mark. Additionally, the SpaceX Starlink program is for deploying the worlds most advanced broadband internet system. The question then becomes, is the SpaceX program an elaborate attempt to hide the UFO phenomenon or is it the cause of the recent observations? Time will tell, however one lesson from the Wizard of Oz is that no expense is spared in the creation of elaborate illusions.
