Eye on the Paranormal – Issue 15 ~ Paranormal Shenanigans!

Eye on the Paranormal

Copyright 2008 by Kirby Robinson

Welcome back to the Eye on the Paranormal. It’s time to toss another log on the fire, fill up your cup of eggnog or hot chocolate and settle down to read another week’s worth of insane behavior of para-celebrities and paranormal scoundrels running amok in the paranormal world! And let all of us from both Free All Spirits and everyone associated with the Eye on the Paranormal send holiday wishes to one and all. May you enjoy a wonderful Hanukkah, a great Kwanzaa, a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

CLEARING THE AIR!

I’m not giving those who are working for the Paranormal Research Society and Chip Coffey as they lamely attempt to discredit our efforts to expose their lies, distortions, and skullduggery. I’m not going to give out their names, but I will address the issues that they are attempting to use against me.

~1 Yes, I charge for my services if I have to go on site to conduct an investigation, exorcism, or cleansing. Airlines charge. Hotels charge. Food and transportation cost money. I doubt that any of the above services would comp me if I told them I’m there to perform an exorcism. In the cases that I’m brought into by the Christian denominations that contract with me they cover my expenses.

Having ones expenses covered is not unethical at all. Numerous people in the field, like John Zaffis, do the same. And even those para-celebrities involved with Paranormal State do so as well. They have their travel expenses, hotel, car rental, etc. covered.

~2 My work with the Miss Cleo line assisting in getting them shut down while other “readers” in the call center engaged in phone sex, lying about whether the call would cost the client anything, and other dishonorable dealings. The readings I gave were 100% legitimate readings. I gave each caller a numerology reading, a tarot card reading, I put to use Runes, etc. Not everyone that worked on the Miss Cleo line was fakes, frauds, or charlatans. Just like in the paranormal field, you have the fakers over at PRS, the fraud of Paranormal State, and the charlatans of the para-celebrities connected with the show. There were some people who worked for the Miss Cleo line that were gifted, concerned, and genuine. And they worked for far less money than those numerous para-celebrities that charge up to $150.00 for a 30-minute phone reading.

~3 There is no record of my work in the paranormal field prior to 2007. I’m not a paranormal investigator who seeks to prove that the paranormal exists or that demons are real. I know they do and my clients know they do. The Bible as well as all the other spiritual paths that I walk, teaches me this fact as well.

What I found is that those who work in the paranormal field who have tried to “prove” that demons are real and that possession is real have not ended up being as ethical as what they could be within the presentation. Because once the money starts coming in and they want to sell their next story they start to exaggerate, create and out and out lie about their cases to make it more salable to the media.

~4 That the Ghost Divas, Ghost Hunters Inc. and me are joined at the hip. We are not working hand in hand. I send them emails sometimes and comment on their blogs once in a while. That’s the extent of our being partners in the effort. There’s not a grand conspiracy as some are alleging that I am a part of. Just as all those citizens across the country who were partners in the effort to elect Barack Obama into the White House, they worked together, but they weren’t joined at the hip.

~5 That I can’t have a 100% guarantee of spirit removal. That’s false, and they know it. The spiritual paths that guide my life teach me the techniques and the means to remove a spirit or a demon and encourage others to move on towards the light. Now is it always done in one visit? Like 100% of the time that it’s shown on Paranormal State? No. We may have to go back multiple times. Unlike Paranormal State and PRS, who simply stay as long as the cameras are rolling, and then hurry on to their next victims as soon as the cameras stop.

~6 My Paranormal Moment of Truth Challenge. Many people who don’t have any kind of contact with the entertainment industry really don’t know how things work. Mr. Buell nor Mr. Coffey are under contract with A&E. They are under contract with the production company that produces their show. If they seek the credibility and acceptance that they allege to seek, doing a show that would reveal to America that they’re telling the truth 100% about their paranormal activities would not only validate their claims but their talents and expertise as well.

As to the claim that I’m seeking publicity for myself, I have a face for radio I have a voice for print media and my writing style isn’t all that great.

~7 The allegation that I approached the Rob & Big Show to be featured on it is false.

Subject: paranormal investigator needed
Dear Kirby Robinson,

My name is Barry Smoler. I am e-mailing you on behalf of a doumentary series on cable television that is looking for a paranormal investigator. The cast of our show is currently trying to communicate with what they feel is a presence in their house and have had many unsuccessful and rather "phoney" attempts by others who claimed to have been real paranormal investigators or have the ability to communicate with things beyond our basic understanding.

I would love to talk with you more about this and try to schedule you to meet with the cast of our show. Please call me as soon as possible so that we can discuss this further and she if you can help them.

I appreciate your time and hope to hear from you very soon.

~8 The allegation that I am making up the story that I attempted to contact Mr. Coffey and Mr. Buell months ago and never got a response. Here’s the email that I sent:

"From: Kirby Robinson (freeallspirits @ live.com)

Dear Sirs:
I have expressed concerns about how you conduct your investigations and the validity of those investigations, where anyone with a clear and discerning eye can see that they are not authentic. I have also witnessed heavy-handed tactics being used against people who question your alleged authority within the paranormal community and dared to raise questions concerning the validity of your A&E shows, Paranormal State, and Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal. I can no longer sit by in silence. That is why I came up with The Paranormal Moment of Truth Challenge, which will benefit you, your organization, the paranormal field, and a charity that would be assisted from the donation of the prize money.
1 ~ It would silence your critics if you are determined to be telling the truth about all your claims and how they are presented. There can be no one left to challenge your honesty and integrity.
2 ~ It would not only benefit your organization, but it would also help the entire paranormal field. Because if such evidence is true, it will be brought to a much wider audience, which hopefully would fuel additional legitimate investigations. So it’s a win-win situation for everyone.
3 ~ The charity of your choice would have the prize money donated to them. If the truth is being told, that prize money could reach $500,000.
So, what is The Paranormal Moment of Truth Challenge? I am sure you’ve heard of the Fox Network program entitled The Moment of Truth. This is where a contestant is hooked up to a lie detector test and asked 50 questions, of which 21 of them are used on the actual show. As long as you tell the truth, you keep on winning money -- up to $500,000. The production company, Lighthearted Entertainment Inc., would jump at an opportunity of doing a show with the two of you. And I will put my personal credibility on the line and appear, as well. For if you visit my Free All Spirits page (www.myspace.com/freeallspirits), you’ll notice that I personally make what some would call outlandish claims concerning my work as a Demonologist/Exorcist/Paranormal Investigator/Caring Spiritual Adviser.
If you would like to be "one step closer to the truth" then this is a way to achieve your goal. If interested, please contact me at this email address and I will get the ball rolling as soon as possible.
Your friend in spirit,
Kirby"

RAY GARTON’S RESPONSE TO JOHN ZAFFIS’S LETTER

In case you missed issue #14, here is the unedited letter that Mr. John Zaffis sent to me.

"Anatomy of a Paranormal Money Cow
After seeing the blog I find it necessary to respond to it. The recounts of Carmen Reed and John Zaffis are much of the case that I worked on I have no problem with that part of the posting. What I do have a problem with is the book IN A DARK PLACE the author interviewed me and from what I can remember it was very brief I had tried to call him many times after that and he never responded back. I was so excited when the book came out I ran to the store to bye a copy (gee I am in the book and had to bye one so much for getting rich off that book). I sat down and started to read it and realized it was not something I was interested in saying was a true story and to this day I do not indorse it as true or talk about it. What had happen with the Warrens and the author I do no know I was not there or any part of what took place in there conversations? .you can call Lorraine Warren and ask her yourself on that one.
As for Lorraine Warren having anything to do with Chip Coffey and John Zaffis doing the book Demons From the Dark this is not true. Carmen wanted to do the book by her self and I offered to help in anyway I can it will be called A Haunting in Connecticut and for the family doing a new move on that case I guess people are still interested after all these years and I hope the monetary value comes with it for them and any family after going public.
To this day I lecture on that case and as many have herd me for the last 20 years my story has not changed in any way on what happened to me or the family that summer in 1988 yes Ed Warren was my mentor feel free to go on my site and read it. The story is called Just Remember.
Like I always do send the person your phone number or call them before posting things it can stop a lot of bad or incorrect information from getting out there
Best Regards
John Zaffis"

The author, Ray Garton, was sent a copy of this letter AFTER Mr. Zaffis posted it on his own blog. Here is Ray’s unedited response:

“I really hate to say this, Kirby, but he's lying. I'd had so much trouble gathering the information for the book that had anyone reached out to me by phone or mail, I would've LEAPED at the chance to take advantage of it. I never heard from Mr. Zaffis. Not once. In fact, Mr. Zaffis seemed reluctant to talk to me while I was there in Connecticut. We had one conversation, but it wasn't very lengthy. I was led to believe Zaffis was not that intimately involved in the case -- he was, I was told, hanging around to get a feel for the business. Ed and Lorraine made it clear that THEY were the leaders of this investigation and that my questions should be directed at THEM. Ed and Lorraine kept telling me that they were going to show me VIDEO TAPE EVIDENCE of the supernatural activity in the Snedeker's home. They said more than once that Zaffis would be providing me with this video. It never came. "John is looking for it," Lorraine assured me. Then Zaffis told me they were having trouble finding it. He became more and more sheepish and reluctant to talk to me as my time to leave neared and no tape had been produced. I never saw that tape -- I never saw ANY video tape at all, not even one I didn't watch. It simply wasn't there, and no solid reason was given for their inability to produce it. Had Zaffis called me later, I most definitely WOULD have taken the call -- I had unanswered questions and had never seen the repeatedly promised video. I received no calls from him, nor did he communicate with me in any way.

Zaffis wrote: I sat down and started to read it and realized it was not something I was interested in saying was a true story and to this day I do not indorse it as true or talk about it.

I'm sorry if Mr. Zaffis was disappointed by the book, but it was written according to Ed Warren's instructions. I have never at ANY time claimed that it is a "true story" and go out of my way to take every opportunity to tell the TRUTH behind the book. I have no doubt that Zaffis does not talk about IN A DARK PLACE -- Ed and Lorraine didn't talk about it, either, and Carmen Reed has gone so far as to denounce it. The book and the story behind it reveal the fraudulence of this case and of their "work". These are not honest people. I do not expect a straight answer from any of them about anything related to that book or to the Snedekers' and Warrens' claims about what happened in that house.

Thanks for forwarding this, Kirby.
Ray Garton”


PSYCHIC/MEDIUM CHIP COFFEY’S AMAZING PREDICTIONS!!!

Chip Coffey responded to a question asking where Jimmy Hoffa is buried and where Amelia Earhart’s plane went down, Chip wrote:

“Once again, someone who does not know me serves as my judge and jury!

Yes, I do get paid for providing a service that many people find valuable and beneficial to them. What business of yours is how much money I earn?

You've been "in the business" long enough to know how psychic abilities work and don't work, Bobby. If not, do a little research.

I challenge you to produce any article (other than by Kirby Robinson, one of your "hater cronies") that says I am provided info prior to appearing on set for episodes of Paranormal State. However, no matter what anyone says to the contrary, you a**holes are going to believe what you want to believe.

Grab a mirror, bend over and take a long look behind, Bobby. I predict THAT'S where Hoffa and Earhart will be found.

Go "paranormally police" someone else!”
Posted by Psychic / Medium Chip Coffey on December 12, 2008 - Friday 5:21 PM

We are currently awaiting x-rays to determine whether Mr. Coffey is accurate with this prediction.

CHRIS MOON & HIS SQUAWK BOX

If you haven’t already heard, Mr. Chris Moon is currently trying to sell to Hollywood a new fake paranormal TV show! He has been trying to do anything to gain any kind of publicity for his Squawk Box or what some have named it The Bottomless Money Pit. He’s even been putting his services on eBay and when no one was stupid enough to purchase them, he bid on the services himself.

There are so many lies that are being told by Mr. Moon that it would take too long to address them here. And others have already done a complete and thorough job of showing such claims like the fact that Thomas Edison was working on a phone to the dead as Mr. Moon claims. Actually, it’s nothing but a fallacy that exists only in Mr. Moon’s head.

But let’s look at Mr. Moon’s appearance on Paranormal State in Season 1. This is a show that he has close ties to due to his relationship with Lorraine Warren and Chip Coffey. Also, Chip just so happens to be one of the very few people on earth [a mere 30 mortals have this knowledge], who can operate a Frank’s Box or what some have called it Frank’s Cash Cow.

It was on the episode entitled “The Asylum” that Mr. Moon’s device was featured. So let’s take a look at Mr. Moon’s claims and the alleged performance of the box from the episode.

~1 Chris Moon’s explanation of what the Squawk Box does would leave the general public’s collective heads spinning as they try to understand it. That’s an old con technique where the huckster uses so much technical jargon that you make people think that you really must know what you’re talking about. The audience is convinced that all this babble means one thing -- this man is an expert.

~2 The first question that Mr. Moon asks is, “how many demons are here?” We hear, “there were seven.” Not there ARE seven, but in the past tense. Not a proper answer from a learned man like Mr. Edison. You see, one of Mr. Moon’s claims is that Thomas Edison operates a switchboard that allows Mr. Moon to contact the dead along with other deceased celebrities who make appearances from the other side at various times.

~3 Notice that Ryan begins to ask what are the demons names but stops and asks what are the spirits names. Now the question was not originally of spirits but of demons. And to think that only one spirit would give its name, which was Lucy. But it’s not. Listen and you’ll hear “you see.” Notice that it’s Mr. Moon who tells us what we’re supposedly hearing. Again, another old con trick. I’m the expert, I’ll tell you what to hear.

~4 Ryan asks, “is there anything else here?” You already have spirits and demons what else is there? Mr. Moon says, “a demon.” Well, duh, we know that already, but wait! Not only A demon, but A STRONG demon! Watch and listen to the scene. Do it again and again. And you hear nothing about a demon or a strong demon, yet again, another old con trick to make things seem sinister and dangerous. And isn’t it convenient for Mr. Moon that only one of the thousands of spirits that must be stuck in that hell hole, decides to talk?

~5 Ryan asks, “is that what is holding you here?” Answer, yes, Lucy says yes. But do you hear any of this? Nope. Only Mr. Moon’s ego does.

~6 Mr. Moon says Lucy is begging for them to come to the basement. Do you hear it coming from the Squawk Box? Nope, it’s coming from the producers of the show.

They go to the basement and the Moon and Coffey Show goes into high gear. You must note that Mr. Coffey is a frequent guest on Moon’s radio show and Chip’s #1 PR person on My Space, Babs, is a co-host on the show. Things are starting to get really cozy here, folks.

Throughout the basement sequence [and the shots that the producers want you to think is the basement, but it really isn’t], do you ever hear originating from the Squawk Box any of the sounds that Mr. Moon claims to hear? No, you don’t because it’s all a fake, it’s all a sham, and it’s all a fraud.

Mr. Moon claims an 88% success rate with the box. That’s an amazingly high rate, one that even the best psychic/mediums would love to have. So let’s put it to a test. This is the Chris Moon/Chip Coffey Squawk Box Challenge! I will publicly post these 7 tasks and they can choose 6 out of the 7 to answer or complete, which would be close to 88%. If they complete the tasks then it proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that his Squawk Box is real, the Eye on the Paranormal is wrong, and it will close. All these tasks would certainly have hundreds, if not thousands of spirits, on the other side willing to have the truth come out.

~1 Locate the grave of Moses
~2 Locate and find the Lost Dutchman’s Mine in Arizona.
~3 Locate Natalee Holloway’s body. Or if she is alive, where is she at today?
~4 Locate Captain Kidd’s 1699 buried treasure off Gardiners Island, NY.
~5 Please find the whereabouts of Osama bin Laden!
~6 Specially geared toward Chris Moon from Colorado – find the $5,000 to $40,000 worth of gold buried in the mountains by French miners back in the late 18th century.
~7 Locate and produce for the public the Ark of the Covenant.

All the above tasks, if only but half of them are completed, would lead both Mr. Moon and Mr. Coffey to such fame and fortune that they should never have any kind of worry about what people like me have to say. But we know what their answer will be as it was to, and remains still, to the Paranormal Moment of Truth Challenge; they remain silent and ignore it. Because they know that they are fakes, frauds, and paranormal scoundrels.

LORRAINE WARREN V. STEPHEN KING: WHO CAN TELL A BETTER STORY?

Beginning next week we will start an in-depth analysis of all the lies that are told within the book “The Demonologist.”

CALL TO ACTION:

Just tell A&E you won’t watch them as long as Paranormal State is on the air. And share with them all the lies and deception that are taking place. Here’s the contact information:

A&E Television Networks
235 East 45th Street,
New York, NY 10017
212-210-1340

1925 Century Park East, Suite 900
Los Angeles, CA 90067
310-201-6060

It seems some folks just can’t learn to tell the truth and their lies just get sadder and sadder. The people over at PRS/PS have been caught red-handed. It’s time to ‘fess up.

For those who are unaware, during the investigation that was part of Paranormal State’s THE MESSENGER episode, it seems that the participants from PRS decided to plant a cold can of Budweiser on a bed to get Bill the ghost to appear.

Ryan and Chip enter the room and Ryan claims he picks up a cold spot and when the intrepid pair flip on the light they claim they see an outline of a person on the bed. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OyHjjDR9JBQ&feature=related The Messenger, Part 2

There are 3 things everyone can do in the effort to get the truth out to the general public and proper authorities. They’re free, and will only take a few moments of your time. But they can pay off big in exposure.

1) Call, write, and/or email Anheuser-Busch, Inc. and tell them that their product is being used without their permission and in an act of deception. Tell them it is reflecting badly on the image of such a respected corporation. Also, you might pitch some new taglines for their Budweiser Beer product. Mine are:

~ FORGET ABOUT MILLER TIME – IT’S DEAD TIME!
~ TAKE A SIX PACK OF BUD TO THE GRAVE WITH YOU!
~ THE KING OF DEAD BEER – BUDWEISER
~ BUD – THE BEER FOR THIS LIFE AND THE AFTERLIFE!

2) Lakeshore Entertainment is the production company behind the film “The Exorcism of Emily Rose.” It’s very clear that PRS/PS and/or Laura’s family is ripping off the story from this fine motion picture for the sake of 15 minutes of fame. Even Paranormal State puts to use the 1,2,3,4,5,6 from the film. So the production company should both be warned and compensated, or have the I AM SIX episode yanked. Here is the contact information:

3) Penn State is an established institution with a spotless reputation for serious research and above board practices. The president of the university needs to know how PRS is using and abusing its image. Call, write, and/or email them about what is happening.
