Predictive Programming - Miami Vice & Gordon LiddySubmitted by MaxK on Sun, 07/08/2012 - 15:55
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.
