Lottery… “The Curse of Winning”

Posted by admin On October - 1 - 2012
Once again we have evidence of a seeming curse that hangs over those who win massive lottery amounts, and our civilized government has to consider how this bonanza gambling “winnings” can be altered so that people are not put in the tremendous danger that has long been documented. There has been a great mortality rate in happiness, lifestyle, and monies as well that has affected those who have been cursed at winning the lottery. Aside from the trained individuals who become predators and have skills in “befriending” the winners, there are other dangers that threaten people who instantly win large amounts of money. This is especially true for those who have not gone through the slow acquiring and earning of money over a long period of time, along with investing and learning to guard it. The hundreds of sports figures who have gone bankrupt in spite of the staggering high salaries they had been receiving is proof of the danger there is when money out of nowhere is dropped in someone’s lap.

The recent death of Amanda Clayton, who was criticized for using food stamps after she won almost a million dollars, her death being a possible overdose, was explained by friends that when she accrued all this money, she did not know how to handle her life.

More states need to sign laws similar to Governor Snyder of Michigan requiring lottery officials to tell “Human Services” about new winners.

A Fond Farewell to a Dear Friend

Posted by admin On August - 21 - 2012

Phyllis Diller's loss was a personal one to me. She was MY guest on a television pilot that resulted in my five year TV series, The Amazing World of Kreskin- I loved her dearly.

Phyllis and I had a very personal bond because of our mutual love of animals. She often wrote me about her pet cat "Miss Kitty" with special sympathy, because she knew the day that my special cat died in my arms, her name was also "Miss Kitty". Her legendary quote about me was:

"Kreskin is a male witch. He should be burned at the stake."

A Political Blockbuster in the Face of the US Senate

Posted by admin On August - 2 - 2012

The Amazing Kreskin is absolutely thrilled to spotlight the decision of his former Road Manager Steve Woods…not only to run on an independent ticket for United States Senate in the state of Maine, but to donate his entire United States Senate salary to Maine charities! He is refusing the popular wealth activities of today’s politicians… book deals, corporate speeches, their multi-million dollar history lessons, and a major first that should make political history; Turning over his salary of $174,000 a year to Maine charities.

What is remarkable about this fine young man is that he “feels that it is his civic duty to give back to the community”. This was the spirit of our founding fathers. They never intended members of our legislatures to be run by professional politicians, let alone a preponderance of lawyers. Our founding fathers expected that successful American citizens would give something back to their country. And look at who they were; storeowners, preachers, entrepreneurs, farmers, printers etc.

Kreskin Endorses Steve Woods For Senate

I have never, in my entire life, endorsed a single candidate for office either nationally, statewide, or locally. I am so proud that Steve Woods is reflecting the patriotic spirit of our founding fathers. He worked for me for some three years as my travel Road Manager covering over 900 shows…had the highest integrity and broke his ass to do his best. I knew I could rely upon him.

But…what a first, to give his entire United States Senate salary of $174,000 a year to Maine charities!!!

“I WILL NOT SAY I TOLD YOU SO…..”

Posted by admin On July - 24 - 2012

I’m proud to say one of the most thrilling developments I’ve seen in recent decades took place here in the state of New Jersey this past week. The New Jersey Supreme Court, which deserves a reputation for being a national leader, has initiated strong protective conditions to prevent innocent individuals from being falsely accused by witnesses of a crime.

For over 30 years, I have stated and demonstrated in my public performances, especially those before universities, that just about the most unreliable evidence in a criminal trial is eye witness testimony. In both dramatic and sometimes humorous scenarios, I have shown how normal, intelligent human beings can be caused to have false or highly distorted memories…the message being that our memories are extraordinarily unreliable.

In recent years, DNA evidence has revealed tragic cases in which individuals were wrongly sentenced to prison, and in at least one case the sentence being 60 years. Not only were they totally innocent of the crime, but witnesses who pointed them out had misremembered or had a distortion of memory recall.

I shudder to think at this very moment how many hundreds or perhaps thousands of people in prison are innocent.

I am proud of the New Jersey Supreme Court for being the first in the nation to release new jury charges on eye witness identifications.

The Power of Mass Suggestion in Society

Posted by kreskin On July - 9 - 2012
As if the contagious social phenomena, which yours truly stated blatantly was pure auto-suggestion, namely the girls who came down with the inexplicable tics and spasms in LeRoy, New York, lest we think it stopped there, let alone the girls in Quebec, Canada a month or so ago who did not come out of the “hypnotic trance” until hours later when the master hypnotist had to release them, we have a further example of sociological suggestion taking on an incredible power when we find recently on Friday, individuals were taken from the Monmouth County Courthouse in New Jersey with all kinds of uncomfortable breathing experiences. Every sign of it, from cleaning fluid to flowers, you name it, was cleansed from the building. Are you sitting down? The courthouse has to be closed for almost a week. Like the girls in New York, you had chemical experts and I’m sure other individuals with special interests coming in to decontaminate. Guess what? The physical cause, there was none. Once more we have a phenomena of powerful social suggestion. No, we’re not going to say it’s mass hysteria, that’s a derogatory, imbecilic term put together by half-baked psychologists, which really doesn’t explain the phenomena. This has nothing to do with mental illness. This has been repeated endless times, but when you consider this recent infection, it shows something I have been lecturing about and demonstrating in my concerts around the world, and that is the wonderful power of a force we’ve overlooked, suggestion. The real question now is, why is it even effective today on a sociological level? Why is social contamination of ideas even effective in a highly-educated society? That’s the story that I can discuss and yes, demonstrate.

Kreskin Calling… “I Want My Check!”

Posted by kreskin On July - 2 - 2012
Kreskin is joined by Devin Dola, Derek Drayson & Colin Durand,who were part of the sponsoring committee who brought Kreskin to The University of Manitoba in Winnipeg, CA. on Feb. 2nd, 2012.
During his concert before the University audience, Kreskin completed what turned out to be one of the most dramatic searches for his check. He found it hidden inside a cell phone in an audience member's pocket.
