Image result for economic collapse

By Paul McGuire

Tomorrow morning you could wake up and see anarchy, riots in the streets, banks closed, and war breaking out between Russia and NATO, or a major conflict in the Middle East. Once the American people see mass lootings of stores, millions of other Americans will succumb to the herd mentality and join the looters in order to get food, medicine, and other items in order to survive.

When the average American fully realizes that the money he deposited in the bank is no longer legally his and that he has been reclassified as a creditor due to new regulations implemented at the recent G20 meeting of the world’s top twenty economies, widespread panic will set in. The new banking laws legally block people who have placed their retirement funds, savings, and pension funds in banks from withdrawing their money. In an economic crisis, the banks would close and hard working Americans would have to wait in line for their money after the giant financial institutions that are first in line get theirs. Obviously, by the time the financial institutions get their money, there will be nothing left for ordinary working people.

Many people falsely believe that their money is insured by the FDIC through the full power of the American government for up to $250,000.00. But if there is a major economic crisis the government will not be able to pay out that kind of money. This is what happened in Greece when the government closed the banks in a process called “bank bail-ins.” The government and the banks blocked people from withdrawing their savings, pensions, and other funds so that the people’s money could be used to pay off the bank debts. The people of Greece were starving and destitute, which resulted in riots and threats of a violent overthrow of the government.

If you connect the dots, then the increase of massive government surveillance on the American people, the widespread use of drones, the eliminations of due process, and martial law exercises like Jade Helm where U.S. soldiers, helicopters and armored vehicles will be sent into states and cities all begin to make sense.

October 17, 2015 is the deadline for agreeing on the federal budget, along with the possibility of the government defaulting on its loans. On the same day two large drills are going to take place: The Great Shake Out Earth Quake Drill and The Quantum Dawn Two Cyber Attack Bank Drill, where simulated Cyber attacks on the banking system may cause people to discover that they can’t log in to their online banking accounts. If this scenario were to become real, it could mean that “bank bail-ins” have been initiated and the kinds of riots and lootings that happened in Greece would happen here.

It appears that we have learned nothing from our last economic disaster. On September 18, 2008, the Treasury pumped $105 billion into the system in an attempt to stem the tide of the financial crisis. There was an electronic run on the banks which therefore decided to close down the money accounts. If they had not done that, their projection was that by 2:00 PM over $6 trillion would have been taken out of the money market system, which would have collapsed the entire U.S. economy, and within 24 hours the world economy would have collapsed. The result would have been the end of our economic and political system and the fall of America.

Once the banks close their doors and shut down the ATMs and online banking there will be mass anarchy. Did you ever ask yourself why so many large banks across America have installed large bulletproof see-through plastic barriers in front of the teller windows? Did you think they were put in to just stop bank robberies?

Again, in September of 2008, US Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson advised the U.S. government to resort to martial law if Wall Street was not bailed out from the credit collapse. The 2008 crisis was a run not on the conventional banking system, but on what is called the “shadow banking system,” which consists of non-bank financial institutions, financial service institutions, unregulated traditional commercial banks which manage hedge funds, money market funds, credit investment funds, private equity funds, securities broker dealers, and finance companies. Under the new laws investment banks and commercial banks are allowed to conduct a huge part of their business in the “shadow” financial casino, which is gambling on over $290 million in highly risky contracts called derivatives.

At the same time there is a European Crisis unfolding in relationship to Greece. There is the potential of the breakup and radical reorganization of the European Union. This could ignite a global debt implosion that would seriously weaken Eastern Europe, which could cause a conflict between Russia, NATO, the EU, and the United States. There is a reason our military command is moving back under Cheyenne Mountain: World War III could be ignited. In addition, a strong Russia and a weak Europe could cause a Russian/Iranian invasion of Israel which was predicted in Ezekiel Chapter 38.

Clearly we are on the edge of catastrophe! There are two paths set before us. First, an economic crisis in the U.S. which ignites anarchy, riots, lootings, civil war, and martial law. This is the path we are currently set on. The second path is a powerful spiritual awakening with Americans realizing that they are responsible for the demise of our nation because, as Edmund Burke said, “The only thing necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” 

This spiritual awakening is contingent upon our understanding that God, not government and manmade institutions, is our source. The socialist mindset, which believes that there is no God and that only a world socialist government can solve our problems must be rejected and there must be a return to the spiritual, economic, moral, and social ideas prevalent at the founding of America. If this happens in a significant percentage of the American people there may yet be a Mass Awakening that can turn the tide before crisis erupts

Shelia Zilinski Interviews Dave Hodges: What You Don’t Know About Jade Helm Can Hurt You

Kiev seeks $350bn in damages from ‘Russian aggression’

The True Origins Of ISIS Revealed

What Will You Tell Your Children About Jade Helm When It’s In Their Face?

America’s southern border has disintegrated, Russia and NATO are mobilizing in and around Ukraine in what could be the beginning of World War III, our economy is one slight push from free fall, we have foreign troops, who have promised us harm, training on our soil. And we have massive military movements all around our country in support of Jade Helm. Our skies are filled with attack helicopters.  Our train tracks are increasingly carrying military equipment all around the country. We cannot turn on our televisions and be assured that our children will not see reports about Jade Helm because the Mainstream Media is becoming obsessed with the topic. All of these things are on the short list of challenges presented to inhabitants of America by the New World Order and many parents are finding it difficult to shield their children from the truth.  You can always unplug the television and change the subject. However, when the following scenes begin to take place with greater frequency over the next several weeks, what will you tell your children about Jade Helm and the New World Order?
When your children see this in the coming months, what will you tell them?
When your children see this in the coming months, what will you tell them ?I am not sure they will believe it’s Santa coming down the chimney.

"Hey daddy, what is that?
“Hey daddy, what is that”?

Hey mom, where are they going with all those weapons? Are we going to be at war?
“Hey mom, where are they going with all those weapons? Are we going to have a war”?
Do we tell our children about Jade Helm after Special Forces are rapelling from helicopters into our communities as they practice their extraction drills which could go live at any moment?
Do we wait until we see armored vehicles like we did in a small town in New Hampshire this past Wednesday?  Or do you wait until you are sitting at a railroad crossing and see a two mile long train filled with nothing but military equipment?
And God forbid that you and your children are out on a Friday night and are confronted with the horror of citizens being marched into detention while under guard by U.S. troops like we see here on Friday, March 27, 2015 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. What will you tell them then?

 Where are they taking those people, daddy?
“Where are they taking those people, daddy? Did they do something wrong? Does somebody want to hurt them”?

No Blueprint for Parenting

When I became a parent, I mistakenly thought that I would raise my son just like my parents raised me. My parents instilled in me a fundamental respect for authority, how to honor the great traditions of our country and how to work hard to get what I wanted out of life. I grew up loving the ideals of our country, the freedom and the opportunity.  As a result, I have lived a good and prosperous life. I give thanks to my parents and to God everyday for my good fortune. However, I have learned that I was not fully prepared to be a parent because I do not know how to teach my 14 year old son about living under tyranny that will accompany Jade Helm on behalf of the New World Order.

The Republic Is Dead, Long Live the Republic

The America we knew is dead and gone and is running solely on momentum. Are any of you asking the same question that I am about how we tell our teenage children that they live under a hopelessly corrupt government and they are making plans to fully enslave all of us under REX 84, FEMA Camps, NDAA, and now Jade Helm? Do we teach our children to never criticize the government because free speech has been criminalized as an act of terrorism? How do we provide our children hope that if they work hard and go to college, that they will have a good life? And even if our kids graduate from college, most won’t find job when they get out of school and even if they do find work in their field, they will be debt slaves because of the cost of higher education. How do we encourage our children to learn the lessons of civics when we fully know that our vote, on a national level, does not make a darn bit of difference and that the Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, et al., are all bought and paid for? How do we teach our children that our brave men and women who serve in the military have been turned into pawns of corporate greed and subsequent bankster-inspired imperialism? How do we prepare to raise our children in a decadent society which dishonors the very Christian principles that our country was founded upon?

Feeling Inadequate As a Father

In my work as a writer and a broadcaster in the Independent Media, I know all too well that the potential dangers that I face in my attempts to reveal the truth about the lawlessness and abject criminality of so many in power. Hastings and Breitbart remind all of us that we take significant risks to do what we do. I decided several years ago that I was willing to take the risk as are so many of my media colleagues. However, I have discovered that I was unprepared to be a father to a child who is growing up in a time of unprecedented corporate and government criminality. Do you realize that our children are living under a government that has forsaken due process and tortures people that they disagree with, under the NDAA, and this is only what is openly admitted to! If we treated our children like the government treats us, we would all be put in jail for neglect and child abuse. How do I teach my son to develop a fundamental respect for many of our political and corporate leaders who have no moral compass?

The Questions a Parent Cannot Answer

My son is now asking questions befitting an adult perspective of our present political and economic situation.  I am not bashful about identifying the misdeeds of our government when I am writing or broadcasting. Also, I know that I have the intellectual capacity to explain to my son how bad things have become in terms he can understand. However, I have found that I am lacking the skill and knowledge to explain to my son just how bad things are without taking away his hope for the future.  Although I constantly say that I am fighting for our children’s future, I have kept my son as separate as I can from my work in the media. It is not something that I have tried to share with him because I do not want him to become cynical. Yet, I know that there comes the day when all parents realize that we have to tell our children that there is no Santa Claus and that is not him coming down the chimney at 3AM.
I grew up in an America which was a republic interspersed with some corruption. Today’s America is a corporate criminal enterprise where there are no rules for the elite and the constitutional precepts underlying our laws are on life support. Subsequently my son 14 year old son is growing up in a far different America than I did and to hear him talk about his future hopes and fears reflects these fundamental changes that we have experienced as a country.

What Will You Tell Your Children?


When my son was eight years old, I took him to Washington D.C. (pictured to the right) and we tried to instill in him an ongoing appreciation of American traditions.
At the time of the trip, six years ago, I still held out faint hope we could restore our Republic and Washington D.C. could stop being referred to as the District of Criminals.  After all, children need to be worried about the piano lessons, their sports teams, their first crush, their schooling, they do not need to be burdened with dealing with geopolitical issues stemming from the bankers trying to run this planet. Yet, our children’s lives are increasingly being dominated by this march towards economic and political totalitarianism, and in  the upcoming weeks, Jade Helm will force parents to answer some very uncomfortable questions from their children as we witness the tyranny of Jade Helm  in an up close and personal manner.


If you are awake as to what is going on and you have children, you will one day be forced to answer the questions that your children ask about the world that they live in. And for the life of me, I do not know how to tell my child how to live in the New World Order. Do you?

If the globalists are able to completely tighten the noose of Jade Helm tyranny around our collective necks, your children may ask you one day “Mommy and Daddy, what did you do to try and stop the bad people from hurting us”?

ON THE PATH OF THE IMMORTALS No 8 What Is A Portal And Who Waits Behind The Doorways?

In sacred Scripture, Daniel mentions the Watchers four times, even revealing that King Nebuchadnezzar’s curse was “by the decree of the watchers” (Daniel 4:17). The Watchers are widely attested in intertestamental Jewish literature. The most famous example is the “Book of the Watchers” (1 Enoch 1–36), where the term is used for the fallen immortals, the sons of God, who fathered the Nephilim in Genesis 6, amongst other acts of debauchery against the created order. A variant version of the story in the Book of Jubilees has the Watchers come down to teach men holiness (Jubilees 3:15), but they are subsequently corrupted when they lust after human women (Jubilees 5:1). In Jubilees, the evil immortals have a leader named Mastema, who persuades God to let one-tenth of the evil spirits remain with him on earth to corrupt and lead humankind astray.
In a document fragment found in Cave 4 among the Dead Sea Scrolls, Amram, the father of Moses, sees the chief angel of darkness (a Watcher named Melkiresha) in the form of a reptilian (bracketed suspension points represent scroll damage/irretrievable text):
I saw Watchers in my vision, a dream vision, and behold two (of them) argued about me and said […] and they were engaged in a great quarrel concerning me. I asked them: “You, what are you […] thus […] about me?” They answered and said to me: “We have been made masters and rule over all the sons of men.” And they said to me: “Which of us do you choose […]
I raised my eyes and saw one of them. His looks were frightening like those of a viper, and his garments were multi-colored and he was extremely dark […]
And afterwards I looked and behold […] by his appearance and his face was like that of an adder [a venomous snake], and he was covered with […] together, and his eyes […]”[i]
This reptilian Watcher seems to be an entirely different sort of creature than the human-looking messenger angels one encounters in the New Testament.
In the Bible, the Cherubim usually serve in one of two functions: as guardians of a sacred tree (Genesis 3:24) or as guardians and carriers of a throne (Psalm 18:10). While they have human features, Cherubim are chimeras, “the Israelite counterpart of the sphinx.”[ii] Ezekiel offers the most elaborate description (Ezekiel 1:10, 9:3; 10:15–22) in which they have the “likeness of a man” but “had four faces, and every one had four wings” (Ezekiel 1:6). In Revelation, they, or a similar creature, are also described as “beasts full of eyes before and behind” (Revelation 4:6). Minor differences in the descriptions might suggest a subjective element in mystical visions like the examples recorded by Ezekiel and John, or perhaps it indicates some variety in Cherub attributes. Stranger still, we believe these entities are “shape shifters” who can morph their physical forms. Whatever the case may be, the point we are driving at is that Cherubim are fearsome creatures, not the putti—plump rosy-cheeked winged babies seen in Renaissance and Baroque art—that they are commonly mixed up with.[iii]
Even more, it seems likely that the Prince of Darkness himself is of the Cherub family. Ezekiel likens the downfall of the proud king of Tyre to the fall and curse on the serpent (Genesis 3:14–15) in an amazing lament (Ezekiel 28:11–19). It sees through the proud human despot to the evil power behind him. It harkens back to the immortal “anointed cherub,” in the “garden of God” and on the “mountain of God” (Ezekiel 28:13–14). That ancient serpent (Hebrew Nachash) who fell and deceived the first humans in the garden is later positively identified as the devil or Satan (Revelation 12:9).
Fiery flying serpents are recorded around the world as having visited Earth in ancient time with promises they will return through the portals in the End Times.
Hebrew Bible scholar Michael Heiser argues that the so-called serpent in the Garden of Eden was no snake. The noun spelled Nachash in Hebrew can mean “snake or serpent”[iv] or, as a verb, “to practice divination,”[v] but as an adjective, it means “bright, brazen.”[vi] In Hebrew grammar, it is common for adjectives to be used as nouns or substantivized.[vii] Thus, it is a valid option to translateNachash as a noun meaning “shining one.” Heiser concludes, “Eve was not talking to a snake. She was speaking to a bright, shining upright being who was serpentine in appearance, and who was trying to bewitch her with lies.”[viii] This makes the Genesis account seem all the more plausible; after all, snakes do not have vocal cords and Eve was not immediately taken aback as one would expect, given a talking snake, suggesting that perhaps she was even accustomed to seeing such entities.
It is rather satisfying to know that even in light of what we have learned from Ugaritic and Egyptian texts concerning the ancient context of Scripture, the controversial Hebrew Bible passages (Genesis 3, Isaiah 14, and Ezekiel 28) classically used to describe the devil of New Testament theology (often to the disapproval of scholars) can now be rigorously reconciled. Heiser addresses all three passages as a composite sketch:
  • Genesis 3: The Nachash (“Shining One”) is “put down on the ground” (denoted by the “eating dust” reference in 3:14).
  • Isaiah 14: Helel (“Shining One”) is “brought down to Sheol” (v. 11); “cut down to the earth [erets]” (v. 12); “thrust down to Sheol, to the recesses of the pit” (v. 15).
  • Ezekiel 28: The brilliant, shining Cherub is “cast from the [cosmic] mountain of God” (v. 16) and “cast to the ground [erets]”(v. 17).
Heiser explains: “All three have a shining supernatural being in Eden who rebelled against God, who sought to usurp the headship of the divine council, who was cast from God’s presence, and who was placed beneath the created things he vowed to rule, sentenced to the domain of the Underworld.”[ix] We believe that the time draws near when the final aspect of Satan’s sentence will be executed and all hell will break loose on earth when the portal to the abyss is opened. In fact, Tom Horn will be arguing in media everywhere starting in May that this is “the most overlooked aspect of end-times prophecy. Gateways of the earth are about to open and a vast array of entities will erupt upon earth, causing men’s hearts to fail them for fear. We have filmed the increase in activity in case locations, and will be providing this evidence very soon.”

What Is a Portal?

Doorways, gates, and portals to untold realms are a familiar yet fantastic topic. The subject is esoteric, not because it is not discussed, but rather because it is seldom handled seriously outside of a reductionist scientific worldview. For our purposes within, the term “portal” can be defined in two senses as “any entrance to a place,” or “any means of access to something.”[x] In the first sense, a portal is a technological or supernatural doorway that connects two places, dimensions, or points in time—for example, a wormhole in a science-fiction movie or the wardrobe in C. S. Lewis’ The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. In the supernatural sense, a “portal” may entail a prayer, a ritual, or an altered state of consciousness. Illustrations might even include an Ouija board as a “doorway of communication” with the spirit realm. A portal might link to a different spot within a universe (teleportation portal); a parallel world (interdimensional portal); the past or the future (time portal); and other planes of existence, such as Heaven, Hell, or other afterworlds (preternatural portals). Most of us learn about them in kindergarten.
Lewis Carroll popularized the idea with his 1871 Through the Looking Glass, a story (later adapted to Alice in Wonderland) about a girl who steps through her mirror and enters a different world. In 1930, Frank L. Baum’s Wonderful Wizard of Oz launched Dorothy over the rainbow into another realm of reality. In 1950, C. S. Lewis introduced the above-mentioned Christian allegory, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, in which the characters travel through a portal hidden in a wardrobe to a fantastic alternate reality with talking animals, the land of Narnia. Of course, this famous Christian allegory became a series of books known as the “Chronicles of Narnia.” In the series, Aslan the lion is a type of Christ, aptly described as “good,” but not necessarily “safe.” In book 6,The Magician’s Nephew, the “wood between the worlds” served as a portal within a dynamic multiverse, including the land of Narnia.
Path21The existence of portal gateways logically follows from the existence of these other realms. Do such fantastic constituencies exist? Belief in some sort of Heaven is nearly universal, so the interface between our “this-worldly,” experiential space-time and the transcendent heavenly realm is a proper item for theological probing. In Scripture, portals to Heaven entail altered states of consciousness like dreams and visions. After dreaming about angels ascending and descending, Jacob declared Bethel “the gate of heaven” (Genesis 28:17). The first verse of Isaiah describes the book as the “vision of Isaiah,” meaning a message from God given in symbolic form (1 Samuel 3:1; Ezekiel 7:26). Also, it is interesting that Paul wasn’t sure if he was in his body or outside of it when he journeyed to the Third Heaven (2 Corinthians 12:2). In chapter 8 “The Science of Portals” in the upcoming book On the Path of the Immortalswe explain why science has been forced to acknowledge that consciousness affects physical matter. Otherworldly gates feature prominently in religious structures worldwide.
In the West, the lost knowledge of portals once featured prominently in the art and architecture of sacred spaces. Medieval cathedral and church entrances were designed to be spiritual transformation portals. Back then, the church was seen as an allegory for the voice of Christ. The entry portal was interpreted in light of Jesus’ figure of speech: “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture” (John 10:9). Medieval scholar Calvin Kendall observed that cathedrals often aligned the figure of Christ with the vertical access of the door to symbolize this typology. Kendall states, “The portal was designed to assist the medieval Christians in experiencing the church as a mystical space that was both the dwelling place of God and the place where one entered into his or her better nature.”[xi] Like a wormhole to another universe, ecclesiastical doors served as a transition between the profane ordinary world and the sacred space.
In the East, the ancient name “Babylon” comes from the Hellenized form of the Akkadian Bab-Ilu, meaning “the gate of god.” In chapter 7of the upcoming book, we delve into Babylon and its gates. Babylonian astrology was the first organized system of astrology, arising in the second millennium BC.[xii] In India, Vedic astrology holds that twenty-seven constellations—identified as “Nakshatras” or cosmic energy portals—influence human destiny rather than the twelve zodiacal star signs.[xiii] The founder of Chinese Taoism, Lao Tzu, allegedly mastered techniques for out-of-body travel, and in some Taoist sects, an adept acquires the ability to “take flight and wander freely through enchanted islands, sacred mountains or celestial spheres.”[xiv]
Located east of Japan between Iwo Jima and Marcus Island, the Devil’s Sea boasts a comparably inexplicable record of vanishing ships and planes to its infamous counterpart in Bermuda. Apparently, it is serious enough that the Japanese government has officially labeled the area a danger zone.[xv] Stranger yet, the Aokigahara Forest at the base of Mount Fuji, Japan, has become notorious throughout the world as the “Suicide Forest”—effectively, it’s a portal to Hades.
The East has influenced the West through theosophy and later the New Age movement, but the Native Americans were similarly pantheistic and animistic. Mount Shasta in California has Indian legends about little people and giants. The Apache creation myth includes giants and owl-like creatures among numerous other “monsters,” as does the Navajo and related tribes. Sedona, Arizona, is internationally heralded for its vortex sites. More than one author has suggested theses vortices are portals to other worlds or dimensions. In view of Sedona being the most well-known dimensional portal location in America, we visited the Sedona vortices, and we could not miss the opportunity to explore the nearby Superstition Mountains, which, according to Native American tradition, are the former home of superhuman giants. The Superstitions also host an ancient medicine wheel called Circlestone, which attracts quite a bit of UFO activity. About.com lists the Superstitions and Sedona as the top two paranormal hotspots in the US.[xvi] If portals to other realms exist, we would expect to find them there (and it seems we did).
Because all religious traditions and even materialist science acknowledge alternate realms, On the Path of the Immortals assumes that they exist, but critically evaluates them as well as various ideas about how they interface with the everyday world. After taking the reader along on our adventures in the American Southwest, we delve into earth mysteries, megalithic monuments, and places of power. We also explore alignments, ley lines, and the world grid. These concepts are evaluated in terms of various claims to dimensional portals and alternate realities. Such an investigation is multidisciplinary, requiring a broad range of topics—from hard science to religion and occultism.
Beginning with science, we show that portals are feasibly interconnecting black holes establishing a wormhole to another realm. After taking you along on a research trip to Sedona, Arizona, we explore biblical sites like Bethel and Babylon, as well as earth mysteries—pyramids, megalithic monuments, stone circles, and energy vortices. We look into the murky world of the occult and mysticism where portals feature prominently. While we endeavor to explain these items within a biblical supernatural worldview, reader be warned: The literature on the subject runs from cryptic theoretical physics to outright metaphysical lunacy. We have sifted through thousands of pages and, as expected, examples of the latter are ubiquitous. Nevertheless, the existence of counterfeit says nothing about the reality of the genuine article.
We explore the hypothesis that not only are such portals a reality, but they are positioned in a geometrical design when mapped as a grid. We dare ask if the ancient Book of Enoch, conservatively dated to 250 BC, defining twelve heavenly portals (Enoch 77:1), onlyseems like Ivan Sanderson’s twelve vortices (including the famous Bermuda Triangle)—or is it more than coincidence? Pioneering paranormal researcher John Keel called dimensional portals “windows.”[xvii]
Thus there are many “haunted” places all over the world, shunned by ancient man or made sacred by him. These are precise geographical locations, and anyone digging into the history and lore of such locations will find thousands of accounts of ghosts, demons, monsters, and flying saucers pinpointed within a few square miles and covering a thousand years or more of time. To UFO cultists such places are Windows: entry points for spaceships front some distant planet. Occultists teach that these are Gateways: weak spots in the Earth’s etheric envelope through which beings from other space-time continuums seep through into our reality.… There are literally thousands of these weak spots all over our planet. Paranormal and supernatural activities in these areas seem to be controlled by complicated cyclic factors. Periodically, all hell breaks loose in all these places simultaneously, and then we have a flap, or wave, of UFO sightings, apparitions, poltergeists, sudden inexplicable disappearances of animals and human beings, mysterious fires, and even a form of mass madness.[xviii]
Today, these areas are inevitably labeled “paranormal hot spots” or “interdimensional portals.” Keel’s most famous work, The Mothman Prophecies, focused on sightings of a six-foot, winged humanoid in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. Hollywood produced a feature film starring Richard Gere in 2002, but what is less known is that Point Pleasant area had a marked increase in UFO sightings and many other paranormal phenomena around the same period (1966–1967).
Pastor Larry Gray was an early Mothman eyewitness. He saw the creature inside his home near Point Pleasant in 1966 and identified it as one of the immortals:
I looked over to my right and there, beside the bed, stood a six-foot dirty lunar or light gray colored figure with its wing-like arms extended and something like hands pointing downward. It had a glow, not illustrious, but a dirty glow. Its eyes were back in its head. I knew the thing was looking at me. I could feel evil communicating something horrible. It definitely was a non-human being. It just stood there staring at me, discharging evil in the room. My mind and body felt as if they were paralyzed. I could not speak. It was the devil. I knew it. The devil cannot stand against the power of the blood of Jesus, so in my mind, I kept repeating, “Jesus by the power of Your blood protect me. Jesus by the power of your blood.…” Little by little, the “Thing” disappeared. It vanished like pouring salt onto a snail. It was the devil; I know it was the devil.”[xix]

In the course of researching On the Path of the Immortals, I visited Point Pleasant to research the Mothman legend. The local Mothman museum displays handwritten notes from John Keel, as well as yellowed newspaper articles from the time of the events preserved under sheets of glass. Interestingly, the UFO flap in the area at the same time as the Mothman sightings was reported in theHerald Dispatch on March 16, 1967. In addition, during the same brief window of time, a huge, pterodactyl-like cryptid known as a thunderbird was seen hovering in the skies.
The most fascinating aspect of the case is that all of the activity ceased when the Silver Bridge collapsed on December 15, 1967, killing forty-six motorists who were stuck in holiday shopping traffic. A few witnesses even reported seeing the Mothman in the vicinity of the bridge when it collapsed, leading to one theory that the Mothman was warning the residents of the impending disaster. Of course, the alternate theory is that the monster caused the tragedy. We suggest that the Mothman is one of the fallen immortals. From this curious history, it seems fair to explore Keel’s hypothesis, which is the fantastic notion that a portal or “window” opened over Point Pleasant, one that subsequently closed the day the Silver Bridge collapsed.
Keel theorized that every state within the continental United States has from two to ten “windows.”[xx] While a claim like that is extremely hard to justify, most states do have an example. Even so, it is a tricky proposition to decide which areas qualify and which do not. InZones of Strangeness: An Examination of Paranormal and UFO Hot Spots,parapsychologist Peter McCue laments the difficulties associated with identifying such regions:
When it comes to deciding whether an area is, or was, a hot spot, it would be helpful to have reliable data about the frequency of anomalous events elsewhere, thereby enabling statistical comparisons to be carried out. However, so far as I’m aware, this sort of information isn’t available. Therefore, some areas might be wrongly regarded as hot spots, whereas others, more deserving of that status, might be overlooked.[xxi]
In the next entry to this online series, we will look at examples of some of the portal locations within the United States we investigated and continue to scrutinize and where history says doors opened once before and those who are now prophesied to return once came through.
