YouTube Psychic Predicted Japan Earthquake Tsunami

Written by Mike Dewitt

Did a YouTube astrologist predict the Japan Tsunami?

On March 8th, a YouTube user by the name of “9Nania” predicted that there would be an “event” (Japan Tsunami Earthquake) between the dates of March 11 and March 23. In her video, the woman describes how last year there was a Chilean earthquake during alignment with a certain comet, and this is what she appeared to make her prediction on. The astrologer has since gained many followers, many of whom have left comments, requesting further advice.
In the YouTube video, the psychic/astrologist says, “I would recommend that if you’re living in a fault zone area; take a vacation before March 11th. That’s what I’m recommending, that’s what I’ve been recommending for three months. Somethings gonna happen, guys.”

And something did indeed happen. In Japan, an 8.9 magnitude earthquake caused a tsunami in Japan, which devoured buildings, cars, boats, and everything in its path. Sendai was the area that was immediately affected; it lies about 250 miles northeast of Tokyo. Police have announced that 200-300 bodies have been found thus far, with many others currently missing and thought to be dead.

An official State of Emergency was declared, and a tsunami warning is currently in effect for North and South America.
Here is the YouTube video of the Japan Earthquake Tsunami prediction:

Chip Coffey Psychic Or Bully?

Written by Leslie Valentin

We live in a world where the general public is caught up by Paparazzi moments due to celebrities dating or breaking up, acting bizarre and fighting addictions amongst other issues. We also live in a time where the facts are not the key points but rather speculation, rumors and innuendos are. The world of reporting on people who are "in the spotlight" has purportedly assassinated the character of many, caused heartbreak for others, and yet for some, a major boost in ratings and popularity. The paranormal world of television or its “stars” are not immune from this.

This nation and probably much of the free viewing world has viewed recent behaviors by actor, Charlie Sheen.  His grandiose scheme of raging has not only lost him credibility, but also his contract with a television network as well as his job.

What is appalling is when persons such as Charlie Sheen and Mel Gibson are held accountable for their words and actions while others who throw hissy fits and tantrums are not.

For some time now on the paranormal side of media entertainment industry on Facebook as well as on Twitter, spews can be read about various people by one renowned individual, Psychic Chip Coffey.  Mind you, Mr. Coffey has no issues speaking out against Charlie Sheen and his actions and behaviors, nor does he seem to hold his tongue about much.  Granted, Mr. Coffey is an animal activist in Georgia and has done wonders to help Shelter animals find new homes, and he also wrote a piece on September 22, 2010 on Facebook about Bullying.

The first line in his Facebook blog reads:
“Throughout my life - from the time I was a child - I've been bullied. Called nasty names and been made fun of. Even physically attacked! Sometimes, it hurt and sometimes it made me mad as hell.”
The entire blog can be read on Facebook, and the web address in listed under sources.  With a statement like that, it is hard to imagine that Mr. Coffey would in any way lash out online or otherwise.  Mr. Coffey goes on to state in this blog:

“I try to ignore those who make nasty comments about me. I refuse to defend or debate because I realize that, in most instances, I am wasting my time by doing so. Those who choose to bash others generally love it when the individual they are bashing gets into a pissing contest with them. And it fuels the fire, oftentimes creating a huge S#!TSTORM!”

So, with this said, why is it when one views Mr. Coffey’s Facebook and Twitter are there statements that are just the opposite.  And, why is it that some people are outright named while others are left nameless?
Mr. Coffey stated in a March 9, 2011 on Twitter to another person:
 “I understand your point & know he loves the attention, but if one doesn’t confront bullies, they will keep bullying!”
…and on March 7, 2011, Mr. Coffey twitted to another person:
“I don’t handle rudeness / discourtesy / disrespect / bullying well. ”  There is an old saying, “If you can’t stand the heat, then get out of the kitchen.”  Mr. Coffey has no issues handing out criticism but he doesn’t take kindly to another criticizing him or pointing out his character defects.  And with some reading between the Facebook and Twitter communities, one can find some of the lashings that Mr. Coffey issues.
Being in the entertainment business, yep folks, I said it….”entertainment”, you are in the spot light. And, in Mr. Coffey’s own words from another twit he made about a comment he received on Facebook on March 10, 2011:
“Brilliant comment sent to me on Facebook: Honey, the moment you go onto the internet, you open the door to every mentally ill person with a computer and a modem!”
Mr. Coffey twitted also another time that stated:

“I embrace free speech and the 1st Amendment but will say again. Just because you can does not mean you should.”
On September 7, 2009, Mr. Coffey wrote a blog on Facebook where he talks about limiting the freedom of speech.  As a reminder, our freedom of speech is the 1st Amendment.  Mr. Coffey goes on to say:
“Anyone with access to a computer can spout vitriol against others with little (or no) fear of reprimand or recourse. Many Internet bloggers and those who post on message boards to assail others use clever pseudonyms rather than their real names. This is no different than hooded or masked assailants in the "real world" who hide their identity and "cover their faces" in order to maliciously attack others. Thugs are thugs!”
The saying about what you put on the internet is not private is true.  It is a public forum.  With that said, one must remember that minding your manners literally is of essence if you are going to post, blog or share anything else on the electronic wave of communication. And, for those who feel the need to get on the internet and direct hateful and hurtful things to others must remember that while they might be protected by freedom of speech in the United States of America; rebuttals are also a freedom of speech so long as it is not lies.  If the latter is true, then libel and slander step in.

Mr. Coffey has shown behavior not only on the internet, but on the television as well.  Some could call it a passionate outburst; others could call it by a few different names.  The reaction or terming of these must be interpreted solely by the viewer.   It seems though, that with the credentials that Mr. Coffey boasts on his website - an “advanced degree in Counseling Psychology”, that Mr. Coffey would utilize the skills he has learned while in school about reacting or how to deal with others in general.  Questions generate however as to whether the “advanced degree” is a Bachelor’s Degree, a Master’s Degree, or a Doctorate.  It would be plausible that if Mr. Coffey possessed such a degree that he would list the actual degree and not refer to it as “advanced”.

It is deplorable however, that people who publically call for the assistance, aid and other means of help to so many can turn around and dump or stomp on others all within the same relative breath. What is even more troublesome is that the media industry and networks do not seem to have any issue with behavior in general unless it is directed at them literally, such as the case with Charlie Sheen.
Acting seems to come to Mr. Coffey naturally however. On his website under the “About Chip” page, it states:
“His psychic abilities manifested themselves when he was a young child and after successful careers in traditional counseling, the entertainment industry and travel management, he began working full-time as a psychic and medium in 2001.”

The public has been the focal point of Mr. Coffey’s aim when he chose to air his disapproval of different forums who wrote about him.  Websites such as and have written articles about Mr. Coffey and some of the shows on A&E.  Mr. Coffey has bellied down to even name calling on Twitter towards and their continued articles about him. is another internet forum who speaks lowly about Mr. Coffey’s treatment of individuals, including Beatrice Marot – Medium to the Stars.

So, after scoping on some of the odd or unacceptable behaviors, one cannot help but wonder why Mr. Coffey is not held accountable for what could be called childish behavior on public forums such as Twitter and Facebook.

The moral of this story is, regardless of who says what, mind your manners per say. It is a moot point as to whether the words come from a celebrity or an average person walking down the street. Don't dish out hateful things if you don't want it coming back at you from someone else. Eventually, all the money in the world and the most impressive attorneys will not stop the judge from saying your lawsuit is dismissed because you got a taste of your own medicine! A forked tongue is not one to be trusted and eventually those who are two-faced are seen for what they are; or as another saying goes - Karma will come back to bite you in the butt!
Just saying....

The Dead Ring

By Mike Dewitt

A new paranormal phenomenon has emerged! It is called the Dead Ring. Paranormal researches have been actively reviewing countless reports of a strange incoming call that appears on cell phones.

People who have answers the call were frightened by what the heard. Some reports say that the phone rings only at specific times with a "withheld number" or "000000000000" on caller ID.

The calls often feature heavy static and the voice sounds faint and distant, while others claim to hear screams and broken messages such us "Please Help us or me". Most people who have experienced this phenomenon have also became ill with headaches,vomiting and sleep disorders after accepting the call.

There have been other reports of strange images appearing on cellphone camera photos that were not taken by the owner after receiving this call. Some mobile service providers say its just someone out there pranking people at random. But if that's the case how does anyone explain the strange illness that occurred rite after receiving this call?

But is this even possible? Paranormal investigators say YES and a lot agree that not only is it plausible but in fact the claims are just another forum of white noise.

So keeping that in mind researchers have been using cell phones during live investigations to see if any spirits would try to communicate with them. The results were staggering especially when ghostly activity was high.

Researchers have been giving warnings to all cell phone users look and see who is calling before answering!!! You might NOT want to talk to whatever is on the other side.

13 Signs That Your House Is Haunted

Written by ColdSpots
Whether your a veteran ghost hunter or just learning the ropes there are many things you need to consider when determining a location to be haunted. Not all haunting's are alike. There are a wide range of indications that you must consider in your evaluation. Such as windows and doors slamming shut repeatedly, unexplainable sounds, and unknown odors. These are all legitimate signs of the phenomena. Some haunting's feature a single phenomena, such as objects moving on their own. While other haunting's offer the feeling of being touched or hearing disembodied voices. In some very rare cases you might even run into a full bodied apparition.

Here's a list that covers most indications that your location maybe haunted:

A general uneasy feeling: like you are not alone, or the feeling of being watched are common in most reports of a haunting

The feeling of being touched: some investigators report that either their hair or an article of their clothing has been tugged on or something touched them, usually on their arm, hand or leg

Unexplainable movement: such as a shadow or light, the more extreme is to witness an object move on its own. For example chairs, tables, books, etc... The most common report is of something walking by them when no one else was there.

Strange pet behavior: A dog growling or repeatedly barking at something you are unable to see, or sudden refusal to enter a particular room or area of the location when in the past there was never a problem. You may even see the dog dart or dash as if something is chasing it away. Cats are another good indicator. They will occasionally sit there and their heads will move as if they are watching something invisible walking across the room, and sometimes they may get up and follow whatever is there. Cats personality are different from dogs, they are more likely to stick with a possible entity rather than run away. Animals also have sharper senses than humans, and many paranormal researchers believe their psychic maybe more finely tuned as well.

Electrical and appliance issues: Reports of TVs, stereos, lights and other electrically powered items, turning either on or off when the witness knows it was left the opposite way.

Unexplained Noises: such as foot steps, knocks, banging, and scratching sounds. Sounds of something being dropped or shuffled. The sound of doors and windows opening or closing. Sometimes these noises can be subtle or extremely loud.

Items disappearing and reappearing: Personal or commonly used items, such as car keys, hair brushes or cell phone, that suddenly disappear. Most people search high and low for a missing item but have no success. In some cases the items will go missing for days or even weeks, only finally to be found placed back in its original location. Some paranormal investigators call this "the borrowers" phenomenon.

Unexplained shadows: The sighting of unusual shapes or shadows moving at a fast rate, usually seen out of the corner of the eye. At times these shadows resemble a human form, with a dark gray or black color. Most people who witness this say, they see a flash moving in various directions.

Disembodied voices and whispers: a phenomena where a witness says they heard a voice saying something to them when no one is around, or multiple witnesses hearing the same thing with no explanation for it. Not only does this come in the form of voices but occasionally people will hear music coming from nowhere. Also a disembodied voice is heard with the naked ear, where as something such as an E.V.P. is only heard after playing back a recording device.

Unexplained temperature changes: These are also know as "cold spots". Usually a fluctuation of 10-20 degrees in a localized area indicates some either tryed or did manifest itself. Cold Spots are a classic symptom of a haunting.

Unexplained smells: the appearance of smells in the home, usually that of unfamiliar perfumes or colognes, that the witnesses do not recognize. This usually accompanies more severe phenomena such as full bodied apparitions. Odors such as rotten eggs are also reported.

Apparitions: the appearance of a physically visible phenomena, such as a mist or shade all the way to a being that looks solid and alive until it disappearing into a room or walks through an object it shouldn't be able to. These types of phenomena are very rare and if encountered should be documented as thoroughly as possible.

Physical Assault: hard shoves, slaps, and scratches are extremely rare, but if encountered leave the premises immediately.

Above are the most commonly reported occurrences of people who believe their residence to be haunted. We are not saying that all of the above will occur, and its possible that some things we did not mention could happen as well. It can get far worse, or there maybe a simple natural reason for what you or the client maybe experiencing. Odd noises don't have to be a spirit, it may just be a house settling, bad pluming, or possibly a wild animal. Check for problems with the structure, such as holes in the foundation, you may find a family of some creatures living inside the internal structure that can wreak all sorts of havoc. The same applies for investigating a business, if the property owner is complaining about windows and doors opening and closing, it could just be rusty hinges or a strong draft if the structure isn't properly insulated. This can explain away cold spots as well. At the end of the day, the majority of occurrences have a reasonable explanation, so before you tell a client they're haunted make sure you have the evidence to back it up.

Strange Occurrences at America's No.1 Theme Park

Walt Disney was the pioneer of the Golden Age of Animation. With that said who will ever forget his brilliance. After all he created Mickey Mouse, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Donald Duck just to name a few. Disney died of lung cancer in Burbank, California, on December 15, 1966. The following year, construction began on Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. So is it safe to say that Walt is haunting what he created? Some believe that answer is yes!

A long-standing urban legend maintains that Disney was cryogenically frozen, and his frozen corpse was stored underneath the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disneyland. Truth is Disney was cremated on December 17, 1966, and his ashes reside at the Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale, California.

But What many are saying is the ghost of Walt Disney, appears to be strolling an empty Disneyland theme park. The image is from 4 Disneyland security cameras and if you look carefully, you can see the ghost walk through the gates of the haunted mansion. You’ll also notice that the park is empty and the ghost is moving at a regular walking speed.

Could this be the ghost of Walt Disney? Or perhaps one of the other resident ghost. Here are some of the reported claims.

Orlando - Disney World - Pirates of the Caribbean - The spirit of "George" a worker who died there when a beam fell on him during construction still haunts the attraction. At the beginning of the day and at the end of the day attractions workers must come on the PA system and tell George good morning and good night. If not the attraction has been know to shut itself down adding more work before the workers can go home for the night.

March 2004 Addition/ correction - when the ride was being built in the early 70's (it opened Dec. 15, 1973) , George was a welder who clearly, welded different parts of the scenes on the attraction together. One particular area on the ride, called the "burning city", required George to climb up quite high above the ground. George lost his balance, and fell to his death. If you talk to any of the employees at pirates, they will either know of someone who has had an incident with George, or there is a chance they have had one themselves.

Orlando - Disney World - There is known to be a tan figure walking down the streets in front of the castle.

Orlando - Walt Disney World - EPCOT - Spaceship earth - a small girl with long blonde hair has been seen riding in a car & a boy run in front of her and vanish at the same location (outside during the day).

Orlando - Walt Disney World - Tower of Terror - There has been a story among employees of a ghost walking around the "Tower of Terror" at off hours; he's usually found walking the wrong way, does not respond to calls and then disappears.

"The man in a tuxedo" is another spirit, though no one really knows who he is. One day an employee was working in the area where passengers disembark. There is a mirror there, so the attendant can see when the riders come up behind her. She kept seeing a shadow in the mirror, and when she turned around no one was there. The figure seemed to be wearing a tuxedo. Then, she felt a chill and a hand placed on her shoulder. Of course, she turned to find no one there. The woman ran out of the Haunted Mansion and soon quit her job.

There is a legend concerning a woman who wanted to scatter her young son's ashes inside the Haunted Mansion, but was forbidden by Disney officials. She snuck the ashes inside and covertly scattered them. Apparently, this was NOT her son's last wish and since she did that people have sometimes seen the apparition of a crying boy sitting near the exit.

Though there have been many stories circulated, only one person ever actually died in the Haunted Mansion. Each year Disney world sponsors "Grad Night", which is for high school seniors. Two teenage boys were riding along in a Dune buggy when one of them decided that he wanted to see the room called "Séance Circle" up close.

The young man stepped out on to the black painted walkway that was next to the tracks. What he did not realize was that there was a gap between the walkway and the platform on which the display sat. He stepped off the walkway and plunged fifteen feet to the floor, breaking his neck. "Séance Circle" has been odd since the beginning.

A sound designer was setting up equipment in the area before the attraction was open to the public. He kept hearing music coming from behind one of the new walls. He surmised that a radio had been walled up accidentally. After several days the music had never ended and no radio announcer ever came on. The man could never find the source of the sound, so he arranged for a speaker to go in the area and drown it out.

Voodoo Dolls

Written by Frank M Stevens

The Voodoo Doll is actually not from the Original African Voodoo. Modern Voodoo became so powerful because it was forged in the fires of survival and included sections from several arts.

The practitioners used any form of magic that would work. The Voodoo Doll is actually from a form of European Magic where it was called a Poppet. That is, Poppet, not Puppet but the word Puppet does come from the word Poppet.

The Poppets are primarily thought to be a powerful magical tool for successful spells based upon a magical law called similarity, which is a sub-law of sympathetic magic. But this belief taken in whole has caused a lot of problems.

Because Voodoo Doll or Poppet Magic can be quite effective, this theory behind why it works was strengthened. But that is only partly correct. It missed a very important piece of understanding that has caused a lot of pain.

When you use a Voodoo Doll or Poppet in your magic you are actually doing 2 things.

1. You are acting with the law of similarity, but that act mostly only strengthens the focus back in your own mind and spirit. Think about it this way: after you get a hair cut and the barber flushes your hair down a toilet, do you drown? Or if a photo of you burns, do you burn? You don't, normally.

A doll you make yourself while thinking about your intended recipient will always be a much more powerful spell casting tool than a doll that you bought and just added some hair or a photo. Sure, I would love to sell you blank dolls,but if I did this I would be shorting your magical education and pushing your spells to failure.

2. Second and more importantly, you are forging a connection with your spirit between your recipient and yourself through the doll when you make the doll, and while focusing on the recipient.

This connection then acts as a conduit for the energy of the spell. Whether you invoke the Loa or another spirit from or just use your own energy, it is like a path through bushes from your intention to your recipient.

This connection between yourself and your recipient is why it is a bad idea to do harmful magic to someone in this way. This is one of the most common ways that voodoo spells backfire. If you are sticking pins on your doll and thinking hateful thoughts at your recipient, some of that energy will come from the doll back to you. In fact, you can test this. Make a doll and do something to it then feel the reaction in yourself. You can even make a doll of yourself and do spells on yourself in this way.

A good use of a Voodoo Doll or Poppet is a protection or feel loved spell. This is when you want the recipient to feel your good feelings at a distance. Another good use of a Poppet or Voodoo Doll is to define and then find someone.

In a spell of this type, you are creating similarity to someone whom you want to find. Your spirit is smart and is connected in ways you cannot imagine. And of course, when you are more advanced the Loa can help you find people.

Here are the steps:

Let's say that you want to find a specific type of person. This could be a love, a sexual encounter, an accountant for your business, a good dog trainer, or someone to play chess with --- just about any type of person. You make a Poppet while thinking of exactly this type of person and you put symbols that have meaning to you into the making of your Poppet.

Key note here: Your Doll will connect you with this person. It has to. It will every single time, I guarantee it. Even if you really do a bad job with it you will still have a connection. The connection will just be very weak. But here is the warning: you can easily pull this person toward you or push him/her away from you. The connection goes both ways.

But you can still test this kind of magic without it. The connection will have a natural pull bias. If you simply make the doll, then do not worry about whether or not it will work.

Once you get it finished, just set it some place where you can see it and ask yourself daily if you will see this person today, but you can't worry about not seeing him/her. If you do,then you will push that person away.

If you start feeling like that then you should destroy the doll and clear the spell. Until you know better how to control the direction of your energy, simply do not put any force into the spell at all. It will tend to automatically pull you towards your recipient simply because you forged the connection.

Gnome-like Creature Terrorizes Town

A video was emailed to us showing what appears to be a life size gnome terrorizing small rural towns in Argentina. Towns folks are scared and city streets become empty by dusk. Reports state that this creature surfaces only at night and will attack anything in its path. The creature was first discovered by a small group of teenagers that spotted something moving in the shadows. The group quickly ran for cover after several stones was thrown at them by the beast. Since that time, dozens of reports have surfaced with startling claims from the victims that the creature attacks at will and has the strength to break bones. Many attempts have been made by local hunters to trap or even kill the beast. Unfortunately all has failed and the creature is still on the loose. A local townsman caught the beast on his cell phone but the resolution is predictable low and no one ever makes out any distinct characteristics. After carefully evaluating the footage we have no idea what this thing could be! It stands on two legs and appears to be humanoid with arms in the appropriate spots and has that freakin’ pointy hat! Do gnomes exist? Apparently they do!

GAC Response to Haunted Claims at the White House

Written by Jenna Cears

If you are as intrigued by the paranormal as I am, then you surely have at least heard of the Travel Channels T.V series Ghost Adventures! Zak Bagans, Nick Groff and Aaron Goodwin travel the world just the three of them to capture evidence of the paranormal. This is personally my favorite paranormal show of all time; these guys are the real deal! No doubt about it!

Zak has recently put out a petition to sign to send himself, Nick and Aaron to the White House to investigate the recent claims that have surfaced. The link to sign this petition is here Petition to Send The Ghost Adventures Crew to the White House! Zak’s dedication, enthusiasm, and trust in his fans to help make this happen have inspired me to write this article showcasing the qualities the Ghost Adventures Crew have that makes them the best team fit for the job. Also about the claims that has risen about the paranormal activity inside the White House. The White House is known through out the world as the powerhouse of America, may have some things lurking in its historic corridors.

The White House has a reputation for being one of the most ghostly homes in America. President Harry Truman said the place was "sure as shooting” haunted. Kennedy’s Press Secretary James Haggerty admitted to sensing the presence of Lincoln’s spirit in the White House. This isn’t the only claim the White House as seen! President Clinton’s Press Secretary Mike McCurry admitted he was a believer:

"There are, from time to time, reports that the White House is haunted by   mysterious appearances of figures from history, and I believe them. There have been serious people who have serious tales to tell about these encounters, and there are many people who seriously believe that there is a haunting quality to the White House."

                       Also Hillary Clinton said, "There is something about the house at night that you just feel like you are summoning up the spirits of all the people who have lived there and worked there and walked through the halls there." Then on the Rosie O'Donnell Show, the previous first lady stated, "It's neat. It can be a little creepy. You know, they think there's a ghost there. It is a big old house, and when the lights are out it is dark and quiet and any movement at all catches your attention."

There have been also a lot of talk about the many séances in the White House, but the majority of them occurred in the period of the administration of Abraham Lincoln! While living in the White House, Lincoln and his wife held several séances in the Green Room in an effort to contact the wondering spirit of their son, Willie, who sadly died there. It is said that one medium who visited the White House regularly gave President Lincoln advice from vast leaders of history. At one of those séances, the spirit of Daniel Webster pleaded with Lincoln to pursue with his efforts to free the slaves.

 Medium J.B. Conklin conveyed a message to Lincoln from his close companion, Edward Baker, who had been killed at the battle of Ball's Bluff. The obscure message said: "Gone elsewhere. Elsewhere is everywhere." During 1863, a supposed medium Charles Shockle visited the White House and performed levitation. At levitation, Lincoln allegedly told a Maine congressman to sit on top of a piano that was hovering in mid-air! Following the assassination of her husband, Mary Todd Lincoln desired contact with his spirit through mediums and séances, and felt that she had succeeded. Members of household of Ulysses S. Grant's are said to have conversed with the spirit of young Willie Lincoln during a séance in his past second floor bedroom.

Longtime White House Chief Usher Gary Walters described his bump into ghosts in the White House. “Several staff members have had eerie experiences. Once, three police officers and I were standing at the state floor of the White House. We all felt a cool rush of air pass between us, and then two doors that stand open closed by themselves. I have never seen these doors move before without somebody specifically closing them by hand. It was quite remarkable."

Ghosts seen in the front of the White House are a long-dead White House usher still frequently turning off lights and a past White House doorman who acts like he is still on the job. The more popular ghost is that of the spirit of a British soldier from the War of 1812 walks the grounds in front of the White House in the darkness. He is said to be a remainder of the 1814 endeavor by the British to burn the White House. The looming apparition is constantly seen with a scorching torch in his hand.

A very well known place in the White House is the infamous Rose Garden. In the Rose Garden the spirit of Dorothea Madison, the spouse ofPresident James Madison shows herself in the Rose Garden most habitually during the administration of Woodrow Wilson. “Dolley” had planted the beautiful Rose Garden a hundred years before. First Lady Ellen Wilson gave orders to have it dug up. Frightened workmen reported “Dolley's” ghost appeared on the plot and kept them from doing their job. After that, no one dared harm the famous White House Rose Garden, and “Dolley's” original rose garden continues to bloom and bring a extra special beauty to the White House to this very day.
There are many more claims regarding the White House! If you are interested start researching! You never know what you might find!

Now it’s time to talk about the three best guys known to investigate the White House. Zak, Nick and Aaron from Ghost Adventures! These guys are legit and deserve the right to investigate possibly one of America’s most haunted places of all time!

             Zak Bagans is the lead paranormal investigator and host of the series, Ghost Adventures. Formerly working as a wedding DJ, Zak is also the executive producer and editor of the very popular show. Zak is the founder of the Ghost Adventures Crew (GAC), a global community of paranormal investigators. As of September 2010, GAC's members were over 730 paranormal organizations. Zak is currently in Las Vegas, Nevada and as far as we can tell he loves it there! Zak was former skeptic but he says that his passion for investigating the paranormal came from a face-to-face encounter with the spirit of a suicidal woman who resided in his old apartment building in Trenton, Michigan in 2002.  After, this life-changing experience caused him to actively pursue capturing video evidence of the afterlife. In the introduction of each episode, Zak states:
             My name is Zak Bagans. I never believed in ghosts until I came face to face with one. So I set out on a quest to capture what I once saw onto video. With no big camera crews following us around, I am joined only by my fellow investigator Nick Groff and our equipment tech Aaron Goodwin. The three of us will travel to some of the most highly active paranormal locations, where we will spend an entire night, being locked down from dusk until dawn. Raw; extreme; these are our Ghost Adventures.

Using a self-described religious, scientific, and emotional approach, Zak is known for his aggressive and confrontational methods to approach spirits in his investigations. He also respects the afterlife and only provokes evil entities in order to elicit responses. In a June 2009 interview with the Paranormal Underground magazine, Zak said, "I don't want the public perceiving us as the taunting, provocative ghost hunters. We do that only to the bad spirits who we know are attacking the living." This makes him a fantastic investigator, and an overall wonderful person.

Nick Groff is the co-investigator and cameraman on Ghost Adventures. He is also an executive producer and editor of the show. Nick is also the co-founder of the GAC. Nick's fascination and interest of the paranormal world began in his childhood. In which he had experienced a paranormal occurrence that he could not explain. When he was just eight years old, he saw a figure on an old cul-de-sac on Lancaster Road in Salem, New Hampshire. After graduating high school, Nick studied film at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. After college, Nick became a paranormal investigator. Nick met and befriended Zak at his wedding. It was a moment that changed their lives, the two teamed up with the same interests to investigate the paranormal.

Aaron Goodwin is an equipment technician, camera operator, and a co-investigator on the series. He is also a very big goofball and brings about humor on camera. In need of a cameraman for their series, Nick and Zak first met and hired Aaron to assist them with most important filming and B-roll taping.
Before joining Zak and Nick, Aaron had worked as a cameraman for the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC). Before what he experienced in Virginia City, Nevada, he "never really thought twice about ghosts." Aaron looks continuously terrified on the show and currently regards himself as "a 100 percent – no, a 1,000 percent – believer." Very often Aaron is left alone in the "hotspots" in the locations the crew is investigating. Aaron has been portrayed as "bait" to invite supposed ghostly spirits, and it usually works!

The Ghost Adventures Crew, Zak, Nick and Aaron are perfectly fit to investigate the White House. They respect the history that America is built on and shows that in their investigations. They take in a deep respect for the land and places that they investigate and take their job very seriously. Having a great amount of empathy for those souls who still lurk the places they investigate, and intimidate those evil spirits that harm the living, they are definitely the right guys for this job! Zak, Nick and Aaron are proud Americans and love this country! They deserve the right to investigate the mysterious and bone chilling claims at the White House! We all wish you good luck guys and we hope you get this amazing opportunity, we believe in the Ghost Adventures Crew!

That Feeling of Being Watched

Written by Paranormal Crossings

Have you ever been alone in your home and had that eerie feeling that someone is watching your every move?  It can be extremely unnerving especially if you have never experienced such a thing.

This has happened to me!  Back in the 70's I was a young bride with a baby on the way.  This was my first born at the time.  We had just moved into this lovely almost new apartment in southern Florida.  We were the second tenants to occupy this one bedroom one bath apartment.  There was nothing dark about this place on the contrary during the day it was bright and the windows were filled with sunshine.  It had a fairly large living room with an exposed brick wall on one side.  To the left as you entered the apartment it had a dining nook and to the right of the dining nook was a well appointed kitchen.  From the living room there was a little hallway with the one bedroom on the right hand side and the bathroom on the left.  Nothing that would be frightening at all just a very nice apartment.

From the moment we moved in I felt that something was off somehow.  I had never had any feelings like that in my life and I did not know what to make of it.  I felt like someone was watching me all the time.  The feeling was stronger in the kitchen to the point that I thought if I turned around someone would be there breathing down my neck.  But there never was anyone when I got brave enough to look.  I tried to ignore this feeling but it nagged at me constantly.

My husband at that time worked nights as a professional Jai-Alai player.  He would be gone from 4 in the afternoon until well over 1 am.  So, at night I was mostly alone and was starting to get scared of being all by myself in my own home.  It got to the point that I would leave as soon as my husband left for work and would not return until he got home.  Somehow, my husband or my mom or even friends being home with me would make the feeling tolerable. I would either go to my Mom's home or one of the other Jai-Alai players home until my husband returned.  I became that obsessed and would be upset if I had to spend the night there alone.  Could the feelings of being watched be because I was pregnant at the time?  The answer was no, coupled with the feelings of being watched there was also something there.  Something totally unknown to me at the time.

As the days went by the feeling of being watched intensified to the point of it being very uncomfortable for me.   One night as we were sleeping I woke up all of a sudden to see this shadow.  There by where we had assembled the baby crib for our yet unborn baby girl, was standing this shadow figure.  Hard to describe there were no discernible features to it but, I had the feeling it was male.  As soon as I saw it, it went out to the hallway and disappeared into the bathroom wall that connected to the adjacent apartment which would have been my neighbors bedroom.  I was stunned, I had never in my then young years experienced anything like that and nothing had prepared me for it.

Immediately after seeing this apparition I woke up my husband and we turned on all the lights and searched everywhere.  But, there was nothing out of place or anyone but us in the apartment.  All was quiet and normal again.  This same thing happened to me several times and always the same.  From the crib to the bathroom and puff it was gone.  Why was I so lucky to be the only one that would feel the watching and to see the apparition?

Soon after our baby girl was born we moved to our own home.  I didn't want to live in that apartment anymore and was afraid for my daughter.  After we moved all was back to normal for my little family and me.  It felt so good to not have that dreaded feeling and not seeing apparitions anymore.

Could this feeling of being watched and the apparition be attributed to a high EMF (electro magnetic field)?  Could be,  I didn't have the tools or the knowledge at that time.  I often wonder if the EMF could have been it, or if this could be a residual haunt.  Except for the feeling of being watched which hints at being an intelligent haunt.

In conclusion to my experience in that apartment I've analyzed it and not sure yet how to qualify the experience.  Because, of my background in engineering I should be a skeptic but I know what I experienced and without a doubt in my mind the experience was very real to me.
