When Precognition Becomes Reality

By Catherine J. Frompovich

Back in the days of radio and intelligent talking heads, i.e., well-informed commentators, it was very common to hear what some may call Op-Eds or media journalists giving opinions.  None was more famous than Paul Harvey [1].  Mr. Harvey (Paul Harvey Aurandt) was a radio broadcaster for the ABC network from the 1950s through the 1990s, and very well admired before the current meme of ‘political correctness’, I think I should offer.  He had as many as 24 million listeners a week; his program was carried by 1,200 radio stations, 400 Armed Forces Network stations and his work was published in 300 newspapers. [1]

In 2005, Paul Harvey was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the USA’s most prestigious civilian award.

In my opinion, they just don’t make journalists like Paul Harvey anymore!  Personally, I really don’t know if he spouted the party line of vested interests, but there’s one Paul Harvey program that stands out, at least for me, which demonstrates his willingness to think outside the box and also to go out on a limb to warn folks about issues.  That program was aired April 3, 1965 and titled “If I Were the Devil,” a precognitive essay, if there ever was one, about the status of life in the current meme-driven regime of the United States in the 21st century.

Harvey’s oral essay with video is less than 3 minutes, but it packs a jolting, spine-tingling precognitive realism of what’s actually happened to what used to be the United States of America and its unfortunate fall from grace, as some could label it.


Paul Harvey, in my opinion, couldn’t fit in with today’s corporate-controlled-and-spun news networks.

He’d be considered extremely politically incorrect, in my opinion.  Somehow I’d like to see his style of journalism come back, but don’t hold your breath.  What do you think?

    Sorry Catherine, I don’t agree with your adoration and praise of Paul Harvey. Harvey’s polished, soothing grandfatherly presentation was clearly a tool of predictive programming and collective mind control. What we believe as a person, we create in our lives. Likewise, what we believe as a nation, we create for the nation. The more people programmed to believe a certain outcome, the more likely that outcome becomes. The clue is was his vast media reach and his smarmy voice. I was growing up all those years he was blasting his BS on the airwaves and I couldn’t stand him.

    • Great points and the timing for these memes is right on schedule to have us believing we are doomed or destined to crumble in a heap, and then what kind of Hegelian “solution” will we be programmed to accept? Better to reject that kind of constant negative psychic energy we are being induced to absorb and reflect.

      This issue of predictive programming and timing is especially curious given Steve Bannon’s newest book, The Fourth Turning, is a dystopic lens of a new political order arising out of the ashes of another major crisis, qualifying it as predictive programming.

      “In Bannon’s view, we are in the midst of an existential war, and everything is a part of that conflict. Treaties must be torn up, enemies named, culture changed. Global conflagration, should it occur, would only prove the theory correct. For Bannon, the Fourth Turning has arrived. … The apocalypse is now.”

      “What we are witnessing,” Bannon told The Washington Post last month, “is the birth of a new political order.”

        Also great points, blue. Humanity is always in the midst of an existential war so Bannon is only stating the obvious. Maybe that’s why Trump fired him. Actually, I don’t think Bannon wrote The Fourth Turning, I read that it’s a book he was highly influenced by? Dystopia is definitely a cyclical topic. The minions who control publishing, media, film, etc. love to drag it out of the closet every so often just to spark some dark, paranoia loosh. I just finished reading Margaret Atwood’s book, The Handmaid’s Tale, written in 1985 and recently recycled into a TV series. Another dystopian buffet, with the added benefit of a hefty dose of gender warfare, just as the transgender battle lines are being drawn. She predicted digital currency too, and that’s how the elite take over humanity…. hmmm. It’s all so timely. They must think we’re too stupid to notice.

        • Thank you for the heads up, BTC, I fixed that. There’s been way too many dystopia themes in books, television, and especially movies. I can’t imagine spending my time and money going to a theater to be traumatized watching the darkest side of human behavior.

        • Here you go, BTC, to end on a higher note, some levity passed on to me a couple of days ago by a kindly octagenarian (retired linguist) in the form of a 2 minute song parody on WW3.


  2. Activist Post has become such a dishonest specious rag that now moderates & censors anything & everything with impunity…to the point that not much is even worth reading about here anymore of any substance …mostly candy cane pap that disappears when one tries to eat it leaving just a hint of something that might have been tangible (imo)

  3. You got it, Eddy. The “Breaking news!” cycles and fear porn abound. I thinking it’s an addiction of sorts, getting that adrenalin rush. Too many alt sites are fixated on chicken little when we should be comparing notes on successful methods to push back the march of tyranny and stepping back to see the forest… otherwise, it’s back to Karl Rove’s quote rearing its head: while you judiciously study the past, we move on to new realities.
