California paranormal societies, groups, investigators and ghost hunters asked to weigh in on demonic activity

There is a fairly comprehensive list online at California Paranormal Societies, California Paranormal Groups, California Paranormal Investigators, California Ghost Hunters of persons who investigate and otherwise take an interest in the paranormal; I am in the process of contacting each one of them in order to get help ascertaining what in the world is going on here.

Following is the general message I'm sending:
I'm contacting as many paranormal experts as I can in California because I'd like to find someone—anyone—who knows what's going on.
I have a collection of notes about my recent paranormal experiences at:
And, I have nearly 80 videos of what I believe are demons at:
Would you please take a quick look and see if you can make heads or tails of this stuff?
I am posting the results as they come in. Here's what I've received so far:

Thank you for contacting CCPI. Unfortunately, we can not help you Mr. Bush. Demonic activity is beyond our area of expertise as we deal specifically with ghosts and hauntings. Good luck and take care.
My reply:
Sorry to hear. How does one make the distinction, by the way? That way, I know the difference when I'm asking around for help...
His reply: (6/30/2012 7:54 PM)
there is a big difference but I would have you find an expert for a definition and explanation.
My reply:
I'm sure there's a big difference; but, I would like to know how you made the distinction in my case. The reason I ask is, another paranormal investigator asked me how I knew what I was recording were demons. So, how did you, specifically, make the determination that I was recording demons, and not ghosts?

If your going to seriously try to capture video evidence I would suggest you use another source of video equipment. The reason I say this is because all the videos I watched had slow frame rates. I would suggest you use something that can record at least 30 frames per second, that way you dont get the lag or drag feeling to your videos. Also all the videos I watched seemed to have some kind of processing or effects, meaning that you edited/altered the videos from the original state by placing white flashes in between cut frames ect. This kind of stuff leads me to believe that its not genuine, meaning you mistaken the video footage or simply are trying to create a hoax video. We do NOT & will not have anything to do with hoaxing or falsifying evidence. Our main goal is to provide proof - If something paranormal is happening and/or a way for the client to deal with it, if they so desire. Personally, for me finding proof that the human soul survives after death is challenging but reassuring if it can be proved. After all we will ALL find out sooner our later. Its the uncertainty in the NOW state of mind that is a driving force for us. This is why we do not deal with fraudulent claims. Thanks for your interest in POST.

My reply:
Thanks, I appreciate the feedback. I assure you this is no hoax; but, regardless, based on your response, you've never encountered entities like these, so a request for help would be unavailing. Again, thanks for your time and attention to this matter.
By the way, the video footage was made on a Huawei Ascend M860 or a MacBook Air. They are all I can afford as far as camera equipment goes. As far as all the editing you apparently see (I don't), I did none of it. But, to alleviate any concerns you have, I can provide you with the source file—as produced by these pieces of equipment—for verification purposes. I really do need the help; so, I don't mind dealing with the paranoid, as long as they have the information I'm looking for.

Ok...So assuming what you are experiencing & recording is genuine. What exactly are you seeking?
My reply:
No more than I asked for originally: any information you might have on these types of entities. What are they? What can be done about them? That type of thing.

I guess I'm just really stuck on what to ask for or what to expect because, quite frankly, of all the things I've asked for and expected in life, it was never this.

So why exactly do you believe this to be demonic in the first place? Have you ever played with an oija board, or summoned any kind spirit?
My reply:
To the first question: Perhaps I'm guessing.

To the second: I had access to no such things at age 5.
From: (6/30/2012 3:30 PM)
Ok alot of people tend to jump to conclusions about the paranormal. They say things like "its evil" or "its a demon". This is a natural feeling for most people due to being scared. Its a natural reaction for people to fear what they dont understand. So maybe its possible that what your dealing with is not demonic in nature. Since you never summoned any spirit or played with oija boards, that rules out YOU bringing something in through that kind of door way. Are you currently doing any kind of drugs or ever had any mental issues, either with your self or family members??
My reply:
My camera is sober and sane.

Yes we have no prob looking at what you have as evidence.
My reply:
Then, thank you so much! My notes and photos and videos are mostly on But, a quicker—but dirtier—way to view the videos without fishing through a bunch of blog posts would be on
By the way, if there is anything in a video viewed on Vimeo [that you can't see very well], it's due to Vimeo's compression scheme; however, you can download some of the original videos from MediaFire. If you can't find one that you want to see, ask, and I'll post it.

Do you need a place investigated?
My reply:
Of course; but, would you be able to help? I need to be sure...

What makes you think it's demonic?

My reply:
There was the time when they etched '666' into my skin (which has since healed, by the way).
Then, there's all the times they've announced their arrival with that triton logo thingy...
But, they are not the traditional Satan worshippers or whatever. They're just monsters climbing out of portals, mostly. They are always mean (except for a few, who have sympathized with my situation a time or two).
I've been hurt. A list (and photos) of my injuries are on my blog. They include lacerations and broken bones.
They demonstrate behavior, thinking, and capabilities of angels/demons (not Holy Angels, but you know what I mean if you know your business). Clearly, it's what they are.
But, I don't think they are actually "demons," in the literal sense. Did the devil create his own beings? These seem like managed entities that are just demonic in nature...
There's just so much more to say; but, you'll be better served by reading my blog and watching the videos. I know it's a lot; however, I doubt your time will be wasted.
I'm looking forward to your thoughts; and, please, don't hesitate to call or e-mail.
