Predictive Programming - Miami Vice & Gordon Liddy

Here's something I just saw watching an episode which may be an example of what some people have been calling predictive programming.

Gordon Liddy appeared in Miami Vice in the episode "Stone's war" which first aired in October, 1986, playing the part of someone working for US intelligence interests and murdering people in a secret war in South America.

It appeared on TV a few weeks before the Iran Contra scandal first broke publicly. At the end of the episode (44 minute mark), the song "Lives in the Balance" by Jackson Browne plays, appropriate to the episodes theme, with the words in the lyrics about talk show hosts selling people on wars for their own interests, etc (propaganda). It wouldn't be until the early 1990s that Gordon Liddy had his own talk show. Gordon Liddy’s line occurring while this song playing is “You can’t stop the inevitable flow of history Crocket”, which seems to be an interesting line for predictive programming, on a show that is hard to imagine airing right before the Iran Contra scandal.

Parts of it first started coming out in November, 1986, and the tower commission was appointed in November 25th, 1986. The tv hearings occurred in may 1987.

Figured I wasn't the only one

Figured I wasn't the only one that has noticed this, so looked it up on youtube.

Here's one of the youtube links with lives in the balance from the miami vice episode.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Could this be an early example of predictive programming?

I added the one liner that Gordon Liddy had while this song was playing at the 44 second mark.

"You can’t stop the inevitable flow of history Crocket"

Could this be an early example of predictive programming? The line almost seems like they are testing it out, and the significance of trying to quell the effect of Iran Contra seems obvious.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

"You can’t stop the inevitable flow of history"...

Here's the lines of the song playing while that is going on. This episode almost sounds like the test case of predictive programming.

I've been waiting for something to happen
For a week or a month or a year
With the blood in the ink of the headlines
And the sound of the crowd in my ear
You might ask what it takes to remember
When you know that you've seen it before
Where a government lies to a people
And a country is drifting to war

And there's a shadow on the faces
Of the men who send the guns
To the wars that are fought in places
Where their business interest runs

On the radio talk shows and the t.v.
You hear one thing again and again
... ...

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
