Guest host Connie Willis (email) welcomed Bishop James Long, who was consecrated to the Episcopacy within the old Catholic church, for a discussion on the true nature of demonic possession and exorcisms. "One has to be called to do this," he said of being an exorcist, "it's not something you just choose to do on a Saturday night because you are bored." To that end, Long revealed that by the age of five he wanted to become a priest and, by nine years old, he had an overwhelming desire to learn "what was the opposite of God," which led to his work as a demonologist later in life. Having performed twenty-seven exorcisms throughout his career, Long lamented that many people claim to be demonologists due to having read books on the subject. However, he declared, to be a true practitioner of demonology one must have firsthand experience with actual cases.
According to Long, demonic activity can be either ordinary, which is simply temptation to sin, or extraordinary, which takes on a more supernatural quality. Within the realm of extraordinary activity, he said, are four different stages of escalating contact. Demonic infestation sees evil take root within the home and make itself known via chilling poltergeist activity and putrid smells. Demonic oppression is when the spirits physically attack people. Conversely, demonic obsession attacks the mental capacity of the victim and causes them to think they are going crazy. And, finally, demonic possession is where an entity either enters the body and leaves at will or takes complete control. The final form, Long said, has a high probability for death because the possessing spirit will not allow its victim to eat or drink.
Long detailed a number of steps which take place during the ritual. The first step, which he called "the presence," is merely entering the room and feeling evil in the atmosphere. Following that is "the pretense," where the demon will act as if there is no possession taking place and the exorcist is a villain. Then the "breakthrough" sees the entity admit its presence and the possessed person screams in a horrifying voice. Next comes the "clash," where the priest provokes the demon using sacramentals from the church to weaken its resolve. Should the demon continue to fight, exorcists turn to a step called "demanding of the name," which extracts the spirit's identity and gives greater control to the priest. This culminates with the expulsion stage where the entity makes its final desperate attempts to maintain control before being eradicated from the victim.
During the first hour, alien abduction expert Dr. David Jacobs talked about ET hybrids. He explained that, over the last 10 years, his research into alien abduction has forced him to come to the conclusion that a race of ET hybrids are currently living on planet Earth amongst the human population. Jacobs warned that these hybrids resemble humans so well that it would be impossible to determine their true origins and claimed that they also possess mind control abilities which could protect them from detection. He theorized that the ET hybrids have been placed here on Earth as part of a larger agenda aimed at taking over the planet, but was reticent to speculate as to the ultimate goal of such an acquisition.

Connie is a serious student of high strangeness, having her own experiences since the early age of three. These experiences left her with strong desires to find the truth of those phenomena. As a woman, her perspective is as much emotional as it is factual, which goes hand in hand. She has interviewed many people in her life and is best known for going into the field of research to experience it for herself.
Connie enjoys digging deep into mysteries surrounding the inexplicable effects and synchronicity of events related to UFO and extraterrestrial encounters as well as anything outside the range of normal human knowledge or scientific explanation including time travel, cryptozoology, telepathy, Mayan culture, crop circles, the after life, ghosts, hybrids, radionics, psychic spies, super soldiers, and other esoteric topics. Due to her passion to know the truth, she researches these strange anomalies, attempting to connect the dots and find the answer.
Connie is always interested and eager to join exceptional research teams, even coordinating her own “off the beaten path” special projects. In fact, she is a Certified Advance Controlled Remote Viewer taught under the direction of Lyn Buchanan, one of the military’s top 'Psychic Spies' from the top-secret program, Project Stargate. She took the classes to see if remote viewing was real, she now believes!
Being in the media, Connie is also in development of several interesting proposals, documentaries and TV series as producer and talent. Subjects dealing with extra-terrestrial abductions, hybrids, life after death, time travel, demonics, strange anomalies around the world, and additional work which investigates the extraordinary relationship between the elusive creature known as Bigfoot and those that research them.
Furthermore, Connie has written two e-books, under the title Win Any Lottery, which provide a technique to win the lottery using a method the military used to locate weapons, soldiers, and hostages in Project Stargate involving the psychic spies.
