THE PROPAGANDA HOUR WITH TIM FLITZER

By: Dorothy Anne Seese

Good evening fellow Americans. Everything we will report and discuss tonight has had the prior approval of the appropriate agency of the U.S. Government, so you can be assured that it is accurate and we in this nation have a free press.

Now to the news.

First, we report that there is absolutely no border crisis in America. The undocumented workers who cross the southern border are people looking for honest work and an opportunity to improve their lot in life. There are absolutely no terrorists among them, and the bankruptcy of hospitals in the border areas of the US have been caused by administrative errors in monetary management. Repeat: there is absolutely NO border crisis in America, and undocumented workers are not involved in America's soaring crime rates. All citizens can feel safe and secure because nothing in America has changed.

Contrary to rumors widely circulating the internet as a result of the efforts of right wing radicals and other extremist groups, there are no threats to American citizens from foreign troops being stationed at US military bases in the US. Those troops are here for military training and consist solely of forces from our allies and in support of America's effort to expand democracy around the globe. Also contrary to the radical right wing groups circulating rumors, the American government has no intention of becoming an imperial power. Our government is abiding by the Constitutution and the Supreme Court interpretations of its provisions.

The Federal Emergency Management Administration has announced that more urban exercises will be conducted in major cities around the US to ensure our preparedness against another terrorist attack, which the Ministry ... excuse me ... Department of Homeland Security has assured us will take place. FEMA and Homeland Security assure all Americans that these armed military personnel represent no threat to the life or liberty of any American citizen, these are merely exercises for preparedness.

The present administration assures all Americans that outsourcing of jobs has had no adverse effect on the US economy. Quite the opposite, the outsourcing of jobs to Southeast Asian and South American nations has improved the US economy by moving jobs overseas that were burdensome to American companies seeking to return to a position of profitability. Our Secretary of State is presently looking to El Al Israel Airlines to run the bankrupt American air carriers and return them to profitability, but so far the only word from Israel has been ... excuse me, there has been no official word from Israel's government.

Those are tonight's headlines, fellow comrad..... fellow Americans. Feel safe and secure in the protective care of your government, they're here to serve YOU.

I'll be back after this break.

Good evening again, fellow Americans.

Social Security has taken center stage in Washington again in anticipation of the bankruptcy of the system when 78 million new recipients from the "baby boomer" age are added to the dole ... excuse me, insurance program. There's no doubt that Social Security has to be restructured to prevent the complete dissolution of the system. Certain right wing radicals have accused the government of scooping up Social Security funds to support war ... well, defense efforts overseas, but this has no impact on Social Security, which is a lockbox trust fund. The government simply did not calculate the number of individuals who would live too long ... that is, outlive the projected lifespan at the time Social Security benefits were calculated. It is now estimated that the normal retirement age will have to range somewhere around 75 or 80 unless a way is found to reduce the number of persons on this entitlement. Plans are being discussed with certain groups from Florida as to how to do appropriate population planning and a written report will soon be forthcoming.

Recent devastation of forest lands by lightning-caused forest fires has resulted in a move by certain groups to designate these as "heritage lands" under United Nations control. While the impact on the logging industry and the availability of wood products might product a short-term lack of paper products, prices will be kept under control by the government until imports from South America and the Pacific Islands begin flowing into America.

On the home scene, the fifteenth rampage with guns by a teenager in American public schools has prompted immediate action by Congress to declare all privately owned guns illegal. This issue, a very hot topic among right wing extremists and other "second amendment" radicals has resulted in emergency legislation declaring it a crime to object to government action designed to protect the people. Otherwise, free speech remains unabriged and we still have a constitutional government.

Nothing in America has changed except for the betterment of the people.

And that's our report for tonight, folks, this is your friendly government-approved anchorman, Tim Flitzer, with all the news Americans need to know.

Goodnight to you all.

Note: this is the kind of tripe Americans are swallowing daily from major news media, which is why they sit on their arses and do nothing in a nation that is rapidly stealing the freedom of the people in exchange for a promise of security. To those who believe there is security in jail, this type of news will be appealing. To those who bother thinking and investigating their news sources, this kind of government propaganda is putrid.

Many of us who are over 65 never thought we would see a controlled press in America. We have it now. We have more government control than we ever dreamed of in the mid 20th century, and the press has played a major role in furthering the agenda of the globalists. When the tanks are in the streets, the news will justify it as being for our safety and security, in exchange for more, for all, of our liberties. And major media will be believed by Americans who have or take no time to check the facts.

Paranormal investigators discuss the ‘Shadows Among Us’

Author: JP Wilson

AMERICUS — It is 6 p.m. in Andersonville and behind the Pennington St. James Church is a small cemetery. Two people stand over the graves, taking photos with digital cameras, wondering what will appear after the camera's flash creates an image. One of the individuals, Tom Hebert, notices a particular grave in the cemetery with a hole in the headstone. The grave is where a couple who died in the 1800s is laid to rest.

Walking over to the spot, he snaps a photo of the hole. Immediately after this, his energy seems to plummet, and he feels drained. Something seems wrong.

Tom turns his head and notices a black grave behind the one he just photographed. Suddenly a pungent odor appears in the air; it smells like death. Tom looks over at his wife Margaret, and asks her if she smells anything. She doesn't, but she feels that something is not right. Tom tells his wife, "We’ve got to get out of here … ”

The couple, members of the Georgia Paranormal Research Council (GPRC), have had many experiences with the supernatural since they moved to Georgia. In their new book, "Shadows Among Us," they discuss the supernatural and include photographs and stories of many of their expeditions.

After the Heberts left the small cemetery that night, they still felt as if something was not right. Tom felt a sharp chill crawl up his spine and his hair stood on end. Margaret’s right foot started going numb. As they reached their vehicle, Margaret looked up and saw a figure in front of the old Post Office. She could tell that the person, if it was a person, was wearing a black cowboy hat and black coat down to his ankles, clothing reminiscent of a time period long since passed. She couldn't make out his features because it was dark, but the clothing was evident. As Margaret looked away to grab her camera, the person or thing looked directly at Tom. Margaret pulled out her digital camera and snapped a photo. When she looked up, the individual was gone.
The photo was completely black with the exception of a small red light, spherically shaped, in the center … where the person she saw should have been. The couple said those eerie feelings did not leave them until they were halfway home, approximately five miles away from Andersonville.

Tom and Margaret Hebert said they decided to write "Shadows Among Us" because "we want to try and give people a better understanding of the unknown." Margaret said that the two do are just beginning their education into the paranormal as members of GPRC.

The Heberts, originally from Michigan, moved to Americus several years ago from Florida. In August 2002, their cousins, Molly Reiser and Bev Pasden, came to spend a couple of days with them. Having heard about the ghost tales at Andersonville, the group decided to go on a ghost hunt. The photos they took were haunting. One particular photo, taken inside the Andersonville Stockade, was puzzling. The ground in the photograph was greenish in color. However, when the picture was taken, the ground was red with clay, not green with grass. Also, there appeared to be a horse's hoof. "If this is the case," said the Heberts on their website, "then where is the rest of the horse? This has us puzzled; there was nothing there when the picture was taken."

Shortly after their expedition, the couple established contact with Rudy Adams, president and CEO of GRPC, who asked them to join the group.

"It's an ongoing educational course on the paranormal," said Margaret. "You start off with the apprentice course, which only allows you to investigate historic places and cemeteries. We took the first course, passed it and became certified apprentice investigators two years ago."
The couple then started on their next step, the journeyman. This step is more advanced, because journeymen are authorized to investigate any paranormal event, excluding a malevolent spirit or malevolent spirit complaint. Both Tom and Margaret passed their journeyman course with flying colors and received certificates on Halloween weekend 2004. Now, they have to do two years of field investigation to apply for their master status.

After a paranormal investigator receives his/her master status, two more years must be spent in the field before the individual can apply for the title of Instructor. Then, investigators receive classroom instruction, teach courses and supervise field investigations. When the GPRC feels that the investigator is ready, the ultimate status of instructor will be bestowed.

A year ago, the couple traveled to Florida for a ghost hunt at a cemetery in Crawfordville. "Before you went into a cemetery, you had to tell the spirits who you were and that you were only coming in to take pictures and not destroy anything," said Tom.

Tom produced a photo of the Crawfordville cemetery visit that was taken of him as he walked along the cemetery fence. To the right, on the other side of the fence is a spherically shaped ball of light (referred to as a spirit orb or ball).

"I was walking along the fence line and Rudy was behind me, and I got this chill that went right through me. I told Rudy there was something there, and he took this picture," Tom said.
Tom then began producing more photographs, showing the spirit orbs in all of them. One picture, shot in Andersonville at the Town Hall building, showed numerous orbs of various colors surrounding the building.

Another photo of Tom’s, shot in November 2003, showed him walking around Andersonville National Cemetery. His sweater, gray and black, appeared to be blue and white in the photo. His legs were also largely distorted, and his body appeared out of focus in comparison to the rest of the picture.

"I had people asking me," said Tom, "can you feel anything? Does it feel like there is anyone inside of you? I said 'no.'"

The spirit orbs in the photos, said Margaret, "are actually energy in the spirits. You can see the energy in them when you look at them."

Other photos, depicting strange lights, not spherical in shape, were produced as well. "These are called ectoplasm, spirits trying to form."

The best time for taking photos of spirits, said Tom, is between the hours of 3 and 5 a.m. when it's really cold. Having a full moon also produces good photos. Margaret added that cold fronts are a sign of a spirit’s presence as well. “Some people,” said Tom, “are extremely sensitive to spirits and know when one is around immediately.” He said that spirits were usually attracted to people classified as sensitive and that spirits feed off of batteries and other energy sources in the area. These sensitive people usually know when a spirit is around because they feel a sudden cold chill.

Tom said that when a person is feeling tired or exhausted, that could be because a spirit is draining that person's energy. Margaret discussed the time the couple had visited Oglethorpe Cemetery. "We were so exhausted," said Margaret, "that we couldn't hardly move for two weeks. We couldn't even look at our photos."

The couple's land also has a bit of history, having once been a part of farmland. A woman who had lived to be 103 years old had died across the street. After obtaining permission to take photographs of the dilapidated house, the Heberts walked to the front of the house and immediately felt as if they were being watched. A photograph of the carport produced a blur in the picture that resembled a silhouette of a person.

Tom then produced another photo that is included in the book “Shadows Among Us.” “We take pictures of our dogs too,” he said. He put a finger on the photo, stared at it momentarily and looked up. “Tell me, what color is this dog’s eyes?”

The eyes were a neon blue, and the photo of the dog had been taken at their house.
Two headstones are also in the couple’s yard. One is of a World War I veteran. “We had the police out,” said Tom, “because we didn’t understand why anyone would put a government issued headstone in the backyard. So they checked into it and said the veteran was buried in a cemetery in town. I asked them, ‘then what’s this headstone doing here? It doesn’t make any sense.’”

The couple also found that an old house formerly on the property was where a three-year-old girl had burned to death. “There’s a headstone here,” said Tom, “that has a three-year-old girl’s name on it. The police said that the girl’s name on this headstone was spelled wrong and that she was buried at a Baptist church. I asked again, ‘why would this be here?’ Then I asked them if they were going to dig the ground up. They said, ‘no.’”

One of the most interesting of the 3,000 to 4,000 photos the couple have taken of the paranormal occurred in their backyard one afternoon at 3 p.m. This picture is on the cover of their book. IMargaret said she had felt something drawing her outside to the backyard that day. She said she took her camera, almost as if in a trance, and walked out back, stopping in a spot behind the pole barn. She pointed the camera, aiming at nothing in particular and snapped a photograph.

The photo, however, appeared to be shot at night, not day. Margaret said she took the photo to Rudy. After he analyzed the picture, “Rudy said that it was a djinn, an alien creature standing in front of the camera,” she said. Margaret said it was clear to her that the two circles in the pictures were eyes. In the center of one of the eyes is a light. “Rudy said the light in the center was the reflection of the camera’s flash in the djinn’s eye.”

Another piece of equipment that picks up a spirit’s presence, said Margaret is a tape recorder because “you get EVP’s (Electric Voice Phenomenon).” During a Halloween weekend ghost hunt, the Heberts and other investigators in the Shadows Among Us Paranormal investigation group went to an Oglethorpe cemetery in Macon County. “We went to the old cemetery in Oglethorpe where a murderer is buried ... This man was a very evil man. He jumped a person and killed him. They hanged him and buried him in the cemetery. Before he died, he told everyone he didn’t want to be buried East and West, but North and South, against the world. We went to the cemetery and Rudy took an EVP. He called me over and said, ‘Margaret come over here and listen to this.’ He turned the recorder on and you could clearly hear something say ‘Margaret.’ Rudy asked me if I wanted to go sit down on the bench and talk to the murderer, and I said, ‘No way.’”

The couple returned to the cemetery the next night. Another EVP was taken and Margaret began asking questions, such as “who are you” and “what do you want?”
“When we played the tape back it was very static, but you can hear something saying, ‘no,’ in response to my questions.”

Tom said that when he was in the Oglethorpe Cemetery, walking around, he felt a hand on his shoulder. He turned around to Rudy and said, “Don’t touch me.” Tom, seeing Rudy 50 feet away from him, realized that the investigator couldn’t have touched him. “It would have been impossible for him to have done that,” Tom said.

These are only a few of the many encounters with the supernatural the Heberts have had since becoming paranormal investigators. They are currently regional directors of the GPRC for the state of Georgia.
