Rant of the Week: "ParaScope is Run by the Government!"

Every week we pick the wackiest, scariest, nastiest or funniest rant from the
hundreds of letters received by us here at ParaScope headquarters, and
present it to you as our Rant of the Week. This week, "John Doe" issues a
strong caution against visiting online conspiracy sites, including ParaScope!

"STOP visiting the Parascope site and all of its affiliates immediately!  You
are being monitored and surveyed by the government.  That is right, the
government, with the help of Parascope and several other related sites, are
catigorizing and monitoring all your visits and activites.  It has come to my
attention that Parascope has been and is currently run by, or is working in
very close proximity with our beloved government.  Everytime that you sign on
to Parascope, you are tagged and traced instantly, and this information is
used to keep a close eye on all of us "truth-seekers."

"If you are using AOL, you make it that much easier for them to track you.
 You see, everytime that you simply log on to AOL, your exact location is
instantly tracked and logged, and then when you log onto Parascope, or use
Aol internet browser or Internet Explorer, you are giving the government a
direct route to your location and all the information that is on your
computer.  With every "cookie" that you accept, or don't know that you are
accepting, you are giving them free reign to your computer.  Parascope is the
worst of all of these sites, because they are setup by the government, not
just monitored by them.  When you sign on to Parascope, either over the
internet or through Aol, you are now being monitored.

"It isn't just Parascope either, most of the major and especially the littler
sites on the internet (ie. the Art Bell Web Page), they are all monitored
twenty-four seven and you take great risk using them to conduct business.
 For instance, everytime that you use Parascope message boards or the message
boards of the other sites, you are giving the government an exact location of
places to monitor.  E-mail and internet communication itself is a very unsafe
place to conduct such types of communication, but when you use these heavily
monitored sites, you are adding more fuel to the fire."

"Just beware.  There is nowhere that is safe for us and the business that we
do.  The post office is less monitored then the Internet.  Heed this warning
and stop using these highly monitored sites.  Also, when Aol 4.0 and Windows
98 come out, we will have even less saftey.  Be careful, or we will never
find the truth."


Something Special In Store

Just in time for the holiday gift-buying season, you can now do all your
parashopping online in our all-new, super-improved ParaStore! Get the latest
books, videos and other ParaScope related merchandise with just the click of
a mouse. Check out the new ParaStore and pick up a great gift item for that
someone special. Look for the ParaStore buttons on the main pages of both our
AOL and web sites.


Get the Message Part I

If you're planning on posting a message to the ParaScope message boards on
AOL, better do it while you still can! No, the government isn't shutting us
down, but we are working with America Online to revamp the underlying
technology behind our message boards, so they'll be out of action for a few
days around the end of November and the start of December. You'll still be
able to read all the old messages, but you won't be able to post for a few
days, so avoid the Christmas rush and post your AOL ParaScope messages
now...while you still can!


Get the Message Part II

For folks on our web site, we're considering setting up a system by which you
can select a handle or nickname for posting a message and then password-protec
t your name. This should solve the problem of some of our "less mature"
message posters attempting to assume the identities of others. We want to
know what you think about this idea, so let us know. Drop us a line at
PSCPWhirl@aol.com with the words "message password" in the header with your
thoughts on this matter.


Coming Up Next Week!

Catch a number of great stories next week on a daily basis on America Online,
or all at once next Friday on the web site, including updates to Conspiracy

The Price of Dissent: Ralph McGehee and the CIA

The Central Intelligence Agency is not only a secretive spy service but also
a close fraternity of powerful men who zealously guard their interests. For
those CIA officers who break ranks, there is a price to be paid. Next week
Dossier tells the intriguing, disturbing story of Ralph McGehee, who served
the agency for twenty-five years, became disillusioned while stationed in
Vietnam, and left the CIA to become one of the major public critics of the
intelligence community. Now McGehee believes that some group -- perhaps
current and former CIA officers -- is mounting a campaign to harass him for
his dissent. Dossier editor Jon Elliston returns from a first-hand interview
with McGehee to bring you his side of the story.


UFO Cautionary Tales: Ghost Rockets Over Sweden

In our third Cautionary Tale, we will turn back the clock to 1944, when a
strange fiery object crashed in rural Sweden. The Swedish Army came and
investigated, and discovered their neutral country had acquired foreign
technology far in advance of anything else on earth. It turned out to be one
of Hitler's experimental rockets, but it left an indelible mark on the
public's imagination, one which was honed by the mysterious "ghost rockets"
which flew across Sweden's skies in the years to come. The scenario
established in Sweden was simple, but potent: a strange object falls blazing
from the upper atmosphere. It crashes to earth in some remote spot, is found
by the local inhabitants, and soon after is quickly spirited away by the
military. Sound familiar? Join Nebula editor Paul B. Thompson for an all-new
UFO Cautionary Tale.


Fortean Slips: Like Death Warmed Over!

A cadaverous collection of all-new Fortean Slips! This edition of ParaScope's
dispatches from the paranormal fringe delves deep -- well, about six feet
deep -- into some post-mortem tales that'll send you to your grave laughing.
Run like hell from the Marathon Vampire, stretch out for a bit in an
ecosystem-friendly coffin, tour some Web Site Gravesites and witness the
truly bizarre tale of the Dead Parrot Revival.


TWA 800: The Controversy Continues

The CIA used a "video simulation" to conclude that witnesses to the crash of
TWA Flight 800 didn't see a missile striking the plane -- they merely saw
pieces of the plane disintegrating and jet fuel igniting before they heard
the sound of the explosion. How thoughtful of them to take care of that
lingering doubt for us. The CIA, of course, would NEVER lie, and these
newfangled "video simulations" are never wrong, right? But for some reason,
these *#&%@# conspiracy nuts just won't drop their wacko theories that maybe,
just MAYBE, there was more to the crash than the government was willing to
admit, for reasons stemming from own culpability in the disaster. As the FBI
attempts to slam the door on TWA 800 for good, controversy over incident
blazes on. We'll have an update on the latest news related to the case.
