The Re-Emergence of Sean David Morton: Who Cares?
By Michael Goodspeed
Last Friday, I was somewhat bemused and more than a little surprised to
see the name of Sean David Morton listed on the guest schedule of the
Coast to Coast AM website. Like most people, I was under the impression
that Morton had been banished, because in 1998, he agreed to take over
hosting duties of C2C along with David John Oates. Art was rumored to be
infuriated by this, and some believed that his long-standing friendship
with Morton was fractured. Sean did not appear as a guest on C2C until
his sudden re-emergence last week.
If you're not familiar with the lamentable Morton, he's been referred to
by some as "A Jack of All Trades and a master of none." He claims to be
a psychic, channeler, faither healer, Area 51 tour guide, amateur
Egyptologist, Nostradamus scholar, and consultant for a UFO-contactee.
Morton also claims to have studied directly under the Dalai Lama (this
probably just means that he saw the movie Kundun 50 times). I have to
admit, I've never looked into Morton's background, so I don't know how
many of his claimed credentials are real, but what I do know for
certain is that his record as a psychic prophet is nothing less
If you're a frequenter of my website, then you've read the dozen or so
articles I've written asking this question: Why are shemps like Morton,
Dames, Scallion and Hoagland regularly featured on C2C inspite of the
fact that they've been discredited in every manner imaginable, while
infinitely more interesting people like David John Oates, Richard
Sauder, Bruce Campbell Adamson, David Icke, and even Sherman Skolnick
are banished? I've beaten that dead horse as dead as it will get, and
nothing I or anyone says will affect the selection process of the C2C
producers (although their steadily sliding ratings and vanishing
affiliates might provide a wake-up call.) Instead, I will simply provide
valuable evidence of Morton's record as a "prophet," which people
should weigh carefully when assessing the credibility of his new
organiztion, "The Delphi Associates."
Here are Morton's predictions for the year 1998: (source: http://www.mm2000.nu/98hitsmisses.html)
1.MISS -- FEDERAL RESEVE WILL "CRASH...."
2.MISS -- PAPER MONEY REPLACED WITH SMART CARDS....
3.MISS -- IRS (AS WE KNOW IT) GONE BY END OF 1998....
4.MISS -- CLINTON LEAVES OFFICE DUE TO SCANDAL....
5.MISS -- [BEFORE #4 OCCURS,] AL GORE RESIGNS [OR] IS FORCED TO
6.MISS -- CLINTON NAMES TED KENNEDY AS NEW V.P....
7.A HURRICANE IN THE CARIBBEAN WIPES OUT CUBAN INDUSTRY -- Hurricane
Georges rakes Cuba, causing widespread flooding, crop destruction (coffee and banana
crops "ruined"), and damage to infrastructure (from REUTERS, 9/24/98)....
8.MISS -- FIDEL CASTRO IS OVERTHROWN -- Didn't happen....
9.A STD IS CURED, "PROBABLY AIDS"/A MAJOR MEDICAL CURE FOR A MAJOR
SEXUAL DISEASE IS FOUND -- A cure for impotency, Viagra, is released on the market
in early 1998....
10.MISS -- CLINTON HAS A HEART ATTACK -- He didn't....
11.MORE CASES OF "JET STREAM TOUCHING DOWN, LIKE IN GUAM" CAUSING
HIGH WINDS LIKE WE'VE NEVER SEEN BEFORE -- Researchers report that the
causes of this winter's deluges include a new type of weather front and unexpectedly-fierce,
tornado-like winds within the jet stream seven miles up. Gales [that caused damage] in
southern CA partly from separate and surprisingly-strong, low-level jet stream that plunges
close to the ground (from the SF EXAMINER, 2/26/98, "El Nino Shares Some Secrets")....
In west Michigan, local weather reports say a windstorm caused the jet stream to touch
down, creating straight-line winds of up to 130 mph (from LOCAL NEWS, 5/31/98).... In
SE Wisconsin, severe straight-line winds of over 100 mph damage trees, power lines, and
buildings; 12 semi-trucks knocked over and corn fields in area found lying down in due-east
orientation -- tornado ruled out as cause (from UPI, 7/21/98).... Thunderstorms accompanied
by tornado-like winds cut a swath through a south Florida neighborhood. Witnesses said wind
"went through at an angle," uprooting trees and tearing gigantic solar panels off one home.
There was no tornado (from the SUN-SENTINEL, 9/15/98)....
12.MASSIVE FOREST FIRES IN COLORADO -- Tens of thousands of acres burn in a
number of fires in CO in summer.
13.LOWER SOUTHWEST STATES (CA, AZ, AND/OR NM) POWER GRIDS GO OFF
FOR DAYS -- In San Joaquin Valley (Sacramento, etc) power out for 1-3 days, 88,000
customers affected, culmulative; Los Angeles basin, power out for 1-3 days, tens of thousand
homes affected (from AP, 2/7/98)....
14.MISS -- UFO MOTHERSHIP CAUGHT ON FILM DURING THE DAY OVER A
MAJOR SOUTHWEST CITY (IN CA, AZ, NM, OR TX) -- Morton tried claiming this a
"hit" on 1/28, "Coast to Coast AM" show, citing January 11-15, Phoenix sightings. However,
AZ Skywatch director, Tom King (working with Jim Dillestoso on all known footage) writes,
"No mothership captured on tape (film), day or night recently." and "Morton is wrong on his
prediction of a mothership taped here in the daytime recently." UPN Network's "Danger in
Our Skies" show (4/6/98) contained what was called "the only known video footage of
January 11-15 Phoenix sightings" and it was of orange-lights at night.
15.MISS -- A TERRORIST ATTACK ON MADELEINE ALBRIGHT, SHE'S EITHER
HOSPITALIZED OR OUT-AND-OUT KILLED -- Nope....
16.MISS -- IN THE SPRING, SCORES OF DAMS BREAK IN NORTHERN

SOLAR ACTIVITY CAUSES NOTICEABLE RISE IN HEAT, TEMPERATURE, AND
UV-RAY ACTIVITY -- Heat wave in LA, temperature inversion traps hot and dirty air
below cooler air -- not ozone holes (from ENN, 7/19-25/98)....
19.MISS -- BETWEEN AUGUST AND OCT 1, QUAKE NORTH OF SAN. FRAN.
(CENTERED AROUND VALLEJO, CA WITH A 50-60 MILE RADIUS), OF 6.0+M --
20.MISS -- "UNABOMBER" GETS THE ELECTRIC CHAIR -- AP (1/22/98): Unabomber,
Ted Kaczynski, agrees to plead guilty in return for life sentence without parole. "The
agreement resolves all federal charges against Kaczynski stemming from a 17-year string of
bombings that killed three people -- two in Sacramento, one in New Jersey, and injured 29"
(from AP, 1/23/98).... CNN said agreement included all NJ charges. By 4/1/98, CA still
hadn't filed any state charges. By 5/4/98, final sentencing for four consecutive life sentences...
