Who loses if Obama wins? The Psychic Twins!

Terry and Linda Jamison, aka "The Psychic Twins," boldly predicted on two recent Coast to Coast AM broadcasts (June 1, 2007 and February 7, 2008) that Hillary Clinton would win the Democratic primary, to compete with the Republican nominee Rudy Giuliani, win the Presidency, and serve one term. I don't know how they could have possibly been more wrong. It wasn't that I was hoping that they would be (though I voted for Obama in the primaries); I am always on the lookout for a modern-day Edgar Cayce. But the Psychic Twins ain't it.

They seem nice enough ladies... but I'm not sure that they will be invited back on Coast to Coast, except maybe to spin why and how they failed so miserably to buck the conventional wisdom by actually predicting something *different* from what two-thirds of politically savvy seers might have done in 2007. I am so glad that I never had that psychic reading from them--I put my name on their waiting list. I will go out on a limb here by predicting that I might move up the list fairly quickly as others drop off, unless, of course, the Jamison twins intuit that I am writing this blog.

This is not to disparage genuine psychic precognitive ability, which is quite rare and valuable when it's authentic, and authenticated, but the true test of a "psychic" is when said psychic actually predicts the future and not, as most do, point to some past vague muttering in the past, post facto, and say, "See? Four months ago, I predicted that a hurricane will strike the Southeast sometime this summer."

Other things about the June 2007 interview disturbed me, and I am glad that I can now toss them out with the rest of their insights... In particular, the Twins insisted that the Iraq war was unfortunate but necessary; in fact, they both emphasized several times that this war was predestined to serve as some sort of vague psychic cleansing of the Middle East. No, Mmes. Jamison, the Iraq war was directly caused by the decision of one hubristic man who, had he not been elected President in 2000, this essay would not have been written. A war of choice, begun by a fool, supported by the blind. While life, and the world, operate in this fashion, I don't think that karma does, and it is paternalistic to assert otherwise.

Who knew that Obama would clear so many things up?


  1. In Mar. 2007 I decided to predict the president, and even I was closer than the twins, but altogether wrong! I said it would be Clinton-Bayh over Romeny-Rell. I took great solace in the VP nominees, however. Bayh is a senator from IN, and his name is pronounded like "good-bye," thus that much is accounted for in the actual nominee, Biden. And with the Republicans--strangely, I had the right idea but the wrong name. I was seeing that they were going to pick a woman VP nominee as a sort of strategy in August 2008. She would be a governor of a small state (small in population), little known, not in office long, and succeeding a corrupt governor of the same party. I had submitted all this to psychics.net but no one posted it and so I dropped it. As of last August there were only 3 women Republican governors, and Rell of CT was my pick. Either I "channeled" something or am good at deductive reasoning on politics--the Republicans are deficient in any demographic other than millionaire white man.

    I also predicted, in Mar--May 2007, and shared with others, that Kobe Bryant would win the MVP for 2008, despite not making it to the championship. The Lakers did make but not win the championship--but KB24 was the MVP. I think I was hoping to see him win something to make up for that Katelyn Faber fiasco. In 09 it's the Spurs, and the MVP is from their team, not Stoudemire.

    This year Kate Middleton will announce her pregnancy. At the end of the year there will be a successful film produced with the words like "mystical sound of the ocean" that will receive accolades.

  2. The Twins scored another defesat when they predicted that President Obama would lose the 2012 election and be a one term president. President Obama defeated Romney.

  3. That's cool news. I wrote this entry a long time ago and haven't followed up on the twins since. From a historical perspective, the election of Obama--both times--was a major, epochal event. If you believe that there is a hand, a force, that influences human events (as I do), you could not help but see the signs and foreshadowing that suggested these elections. In the most recent case, the last-minute switch by Justice Roberts to cast the tie-breaking vote in support of the Affordable Care Act told me, at the time, that the historical impetus was behind Obama's reelection. (Arguably, Obama bought too heavily into this motif and assumed that he was invincible.) And I don't pretend to communicate with elevated beings. In my opinion, the election (or selection) of a President is an event that impacts the paths of millions of people. It doesn't happen by accident. Elevated spirits would presumably know who is likely to be elected (or selected). BTW, I recall that John Hogue waffled a bit a couple of years ago on this election, but I think that he (or his oracle) predicted that Obama would be a one-term President. All this convinces the skeptics that no one can predict the future. What it tells me is that practically everyone who publicly proclaims himself a prophet is a phony.
