To all my great fans,
Over the past 2 weeks, my IT team has been diligently working to restore the website, along with the porthole that allows me to add posts to communicate with you. We were hacked by a person, who I’m sure is in desperate need of psychiatric help, that temporarily shut down the website, along with my communications to you, my fans. I’m happy to report that we are now back up and running! I have lots of major news to share with everyone, in fact, some of the most important news that I’ve shared in a long while. Stay tuned, new posts are coming… ESPecially, Kreskin
The scenario that’s taken place in recent days is a warning sign that the American public and those behind the scenes need to be aware of and prepared for.
Whoever the pinheads, kooks, and in essence life losers are, they are giving us a warning that such tactics can be employed by terrorists. Let’s wake up to the fact that terrorism is not simply the use of a bomb or a chemical device or massive weapons. Terrorism comes as well in the form of psychological warfare, and today psychological warfare is taking much higher sophistication than has ever been found in history. The first available classic study illustrating the power of the spoken word is Orson Welles’ radio show War of the Worlds. I need to warn you that by modifying his techniques, a scenario of tragic stress costing millions of dollars could be created.
It would take only a handful of ruthless individuals to prepare in a concerted way to report a suspicious or alarming scenario, such activity taking place in an area of a major city late at night covering a few blocks. The result would be massive amounts of police or investigators appearing on the scene. More insidious and perhaps more effective would be a small group separately calling from different parts of a city, blocks apart in their location, claiming that suspicious individuals have placed strange looking packages or devices under stairs or in hallways of office buildings. They are not only alarmed at the break-ins but the packages these people are leaving. This could result in large security and perhaps military people coming to an area because of a potential explosion. The explosion would be panic, fear, and uncertainty. The bottom line is by using more than one person, including even an apparently hysterical child calling on what they see taking place, it would be impossible to prevent a major outpouring of activity to counteract what would seem to be imminent danger.
Whatever the scenario, sets of 4 people in 25 major cities, that is 100 people, could do a repeat of a yacht explosion/War of the Worlds and create a tone of generalized panic in the United States because the contagiousness of similarly repeated and reported phenomena would spread as a mass hysteria throughout the country, which is vulnerable and susceptible to instant communication.
What I’m about to announce has nothing to do with my Presidential Predictions, forthcoming or in the past.
I have never publicly endorsed or supported a candidate, either nationally, state-wide, or locally.
A few months ago, I became reacquainted with Steve Woods, a gentleman that I had not seen for 30 years. Steve worked for me from 1979 to 1981 as my tour and road manager covering over 900 shows.
With the pathetic partisan divisions increasing nationally in our government, it is becoming clear to everybody that the U.S. government is becoming bigger and bigger and yes, less and less effective and functional with all its polarizing. It makes it all the more meaningful that Steve Woods is seeking this national office of U.S. Senator as an Independent Candidate. What a plus! This will lead him indebted only to the people of Maine without the quiet pledges, favors, undercover agreements, and restrictions of party politics.
While Maine is not my home, for what it is worth, as a U.S. citizen, I fervently and with much conviction endorse and support Steve Woods to be an Independent member of the United States Senate.
See link below for Kreskin’s endorsement of Steve Woods with great picture as well.
“I read people’s thoughts. I’m not a fortune teller predicting the future, I can’t tell what somebody’s going to do unless they are thinking about it,” said Kreskin, 77
With the passing of Ray Bradbury, yours truly cannot help to reflect not only upon his many writings, but also his persona, both in literature and in person. Yours truly spent a number of hours with him on a radio show some years ago. He really didn’t think of himself in the main as a science fiction writer, as he felt there was only one book of his that was truly science fiction, Farenheit 451. He considered his writings mainly in the area of fantasy. But it is interesting, as has been captured by some of the press, that he felt he came at the right time…..the car had only been with us for a couple of decades, radio had not begun, and there was no television. In many respects, I envied him for the same reason that I envied my father, who was born before any of the modern-day phenomena as well. It gave Ray Bradbury an opportunity for his imagination to soar without the burden of already existing technology, and it could have been a burden.
I remember one of his favorite comments was that there is a difference between fantasy and science fiction. He felt the latter was a prediction of the future, while fantasy just couldn’t happen. Wow!
