CIA Admits UFO Hoax-Or Did They?

CIA

Ahhh, the CIA.

Formed to replace the OSS after World War Two ended in 1947, these are the shady guys who you can blame for everything from the JFK assassination to any secretive operations in the United States or abroad.

They are the guys that rule the suspense and thriller movie genre.

Being a 21st century kind of agency, they recently found themselves with a  Twitter account.

And while they have not released the location of Jimmy Hoffa or told anyone that Ronald Reagan was really a robot for most of his terms, they have tweeted about being responsible for the wave of UFO sightings in Norway in the 1950’s.

Or did they?

Ghost Haunts Senior Facility

We all know we gotta go sometime, and for many who get lucky enough to reach old age, they will live out the last years of their lives in some kind of senior care or assisted living facility.

Being that these locations would have been the site of numerous deaths during it’s time of operation, it should come as no surprise if one or two good ghost stories are tucked in there as well.

Such a story has come out of Grand Haven, Michigan, where nurses who work the second shift at the Grand Haven Assisted Living Facility say the ghost of a former deceased resident has come back to stay, along with numerous other strange occurrences.

Paranormal Creatures: Jersey Devil

426px-Jersey_Devil_Philadelphia_Post_1909 crytids

For millennium, people across the globe have been interacting with forces that can’t be explained.  Things science has yet to fully acknowledge. Creatures that are not just part of our present, but our past.  You will never read their tales in an academic history book.

However, they have always been part of our cultures.  This is what I call Paranormal History.
It was a dark and stormy night in 1735 when Mrs. Janet Leeds gave birth to her thirteenth child.  Upon finding out she was pregnant she stated that this child would be the devil.  Despite her curse, she gave birth to a healthy and normal looking baby boy.

Suddenly the innocent appearing child transformed into a beast with the head of a goat, wings of a bat, hooves for feet, and a forked tail.  With a growl and a scream, it murdered the midwife that birthed it before flying out the chimney and into the Pine Barrens of New Jersey.  This is a popular version of the legendary Jersey Devil, a creature that is said to have been stalking the state of New Jersey for the last two and a half centuries.

Paranormal Presidents

 

The Fourth of July is right around the corner and what better way to celebrate the birth of the United States then by talking about some of the more paranormal connections shared by our presidents and those around them.

There are the ghosts connected to former presidents, such as the ghost of the man who sold most of Washington D.C. to the US Government, David Burns. There is also the infamous ghost of slain President Abraham Lincoln, who has been seen by future presidents and first ladies as well as distinguished guests.

Ghostly Pics: Ghost of Grandpa

When thinking of ghost pictures, we may think of the classics we have known since most of us were kids, like Lord Combermere’s Ghost or The Newby Church Monk.

However, there have also been some interesting pictures taken in the twentieth and twenty-first century as well, like the Brown Lady, the Amityville Ghost Boy or the ghost captured on film at Boot Hill Cemetery in Arizona.

One of the more remarkable examples of ghost photography from more modern times has been the case of the photograph taken by one Denise Russell.

Denise innocently took a photo of her grandmother at a picnic and eventually discovered that the picture also showed a figure that looked like her grandmother’s husband, who had passed away almost exactly twelve years ago from the day the photo at the picnic was taken.

Now, after the amazing events in Cleavland, Ohio, where kidnapping victims Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight were recovered alive after being held captive for years in the home of Ariel Castro, another false prediction comes to light.

Sylvia Browne claimed Amanda Berry was dead on the Montel Williams show in 2004.

Ghostly Pics: Tombstone Cemetery Ghost

By Thomas Spychalski

Some places are just perfect for a ghost story or the perfect location for a excellent ghost photograph. Well, nothing quite says ‘haunted’ like the trappings of the American Old West, with it’s tales of ghost towns abandoned after the money went dry in those areas and the body count created by the outlaw atmosphere that prevailed there.

One infamous and easily debated evidence of ghosts in an old west setting was the one taken at Boothill Cemetery in 1996 when Ike Clanton posed for a picture on the old burial site.

However they did not count on the mysterious figure in the background, dressed in clothing similar to those worn in the Old West and holding a knife.
