BAD PSYCHIC? Derek Acorah EXPOSED!!! #badpsychics

Derek Francis "Acorah" Johnson, the famed former main medium of the TV series most haunted, a so-called spirit communicator, trance medium, and TV celebrity, operates around the UK, and in some other parts of the world, making millions by the means of doing psychic cold reading.

He was known for his work on Most Haunted, and that leap in his career made him a well known millionaire medium, ensuring more TV work and dozens of theatre appearances every year.

 some of the best of Derek Acorah in a video I edited a few years ago.

you may say I mock the man, but truth is without the religious factor he would have been locked up many years ago, since Spiritualism and New Age are protected as religion, with freedom of religion laws, such frauds and loons are left to practice these trades, the believers act mentally ill, the frauds used to believers to get rich.

this next video was a better longer version exposing Derek Acorah's poor displays.

you may say I have been unfair and selective in this blog and my few videos, you may be partly right, yet it is true his fans do much more selection and dismiss all critiques as closed-mindedness.

another video going over a few key points on Derek's trance work

a full refutation of a reading by Derek.

He does use an Earpiece?

please make up your own minds, and consider the facts, consider what is true, not what you want.

Testing Psychics With Haunted Box? - RobertWLester

how could I test a psychic?  what do many claim?  the skill to read people and even objects, to commune with spirits and angelic or guardian guiding entities.
so an idea came to mind after seeming so-called haunted objects on ebay and other websites, no evidence is in place, no tests, just stories, hearsay about accidents and other nonsenses.
And out of the ocean of irrationality the thought of using such a box was spawned.

Obviously such memorabilia is costly, so easier to get an old and cheaper box and make up a story, indeed seemingly this is what the sellers of such nonsense actually do, so if I were to use such a box could I fool a psychic or two?

 this box is the chosen item for such a pseudo-test, where I may take it to a psychic and get a reading, for less than £35, and get this person to do a reading upon this box.  The box would be noted as haunted by me, and if pressed I will offer more hearsay to the pile, the idea that the previous owners have suffered bad events that range from sleeplessness to a car crash, but these ideas wont be leaked unless they ask leading questions.  The idea is to get them to spin what I seem to believe even though it is fiction, logically cold readers will feed off this hearsay, the true psychic, if they were to exist, would know this is not so, and tell me another story all together. 

 naturally it is not easy to get thirty minute of a reading on a box, so I'll get information for me too, and in one or two I will act another way, in majority of cases I will be honest, except in the case of the box, which, as previously stated, will be described as haunted and from an ebay seller. 

Surely if a person were psychic this would be obviously
not haunted at all.

I have taken it to a psychics who said nothing of it being haunted, but I did not leak the fiction in that case. 

it is old, partly restored, and looks the part of an old haunted box.

the story is that previous owners had problems, the details are on my youtube channel, totally fake, but will psychics believe it. 
 naturally in the trial run of a reading the psychic claimed it was linked to my grandfather after I had already leak this fictional idea, seemingly this psychic and medium was communicating with my grandmother but described her wrong and got almost every detail incorrect. 

simply put this project should be interesting and results will be on my youtube channel, shared on twitter and here on this blog.  

look up my youtube

you'll find my work online under the name robertwlester or roblesterfilms. 

response to (moronic response girl) KristiThinks on #NoThanksObama

  This girl may look OK, but is just another ill-informed girl who needs to think before she makes an ass of herself. 

my comment under her video:

response girl, Kristi, needs to stop relying on her breasts to get
views and be more impartial to get a bi-partisan agreement that obama
may have gone too far, I think these general strokes from her are
counter-productive and the labelling of the "left" is a cheap trick that
has no research behind it.
One google search and you'll find
there are those on the left in America who are opposed to Obama reforms
in various ways, often on specific points, and also this paradigm of
Left and Right is not helpful to find where agreement can be found, even
more so when Obama is centre right, but centre to centre-left of social
policy.  depending on the policy and which people are behind it.  
is not about Left-wing policies in most cases, most notability economic
ones, although obviously Health-Care issues are centre-left.  The
various administrations over the years, from before Nixon, have been
trying to solve problems in society by great control, don't worry it's
not New World Order, but it is security at the cost of liberty.  If
anything the Obama era will be remembered as the hard road to economic
recovery, and I hope people will also recall the extra powers of the
government that were not relaxed as far as the Patriot Act and other
relating infringements, after all Obama has not corrected a vast amount
of spending on the defence of america, much of that spending is what
boosts the economy.  The spend on Military hardware is something that
america can't cut down on to a great degree without a healthy economy
across the board, small, medium, and large businesses, so a giant drain
on the economy will take place for a long while.  The amnesty on
Immigrants is a way of clearly a lot of baggage that America has been
keeping for many years, where many groups have been working in America,
but not really part of the American system, including taxation, and this
move is a strategic one to pool resources on an immigration control
that is not about trying to deal with a vast number of people, so even
if you don't like it you may be able to understand it as policy. 
anyway, I rambled too much, but consider why a thing is done, not why
you don't like the idea of it.

"Psychic" Cold Reading - Testing Psychic Reading - Psychic FAILURE!

Psychic FAILURE!

Psychic Sally Morgan over exposed?

In my last 5 years of criticism of psychics I have come up against many quacks, and one of my favourites is a woman who cut down on the extra pounds with surgery, but how she funded such costly operations was by just chatting to the dead.  How easy it must be, surely ask were they hid their jewels and you need never work again, or if your psychic who not get the lotto numbers on a big roll-over draw, but obvious psychics do not work in this way.  Sally claims to have the loved ones of the living come through from the afterlife to give loving messages of hope to the audiences of large theatres, and out of a room of 1 to 4 thousand people Sally may give ten people messages, what a skill she has!  And considering her shows are mostly her stretching out her work is it any wonder that she gets some serious critics within the psychic industry and the religion of Spiritualism.  Many Spiritualists find Sally in person is not anywhere near as gifted as they see on TV, if they were to accept the TV series,"Sally Morgan on the road", as evidence for an afterlife, then seeing her in person on stage may well rush them towards agnosticism.  A number of close friends of mine and two family members have given good ol' Sal a go, they thought she was very poor, the people seeing her were believers, and still are, and yet the experience shook their faith in some kind of mediumship ability, maybe the skills of Sal are not as advertised.  

Maybe it is worth pointing out the fact that Sal has lied on a number of occasions, such as a claim of working with Sir. Bob Geldof, which she had to withdraw from a statement due to Bob's people not taking kindly to this mistaken claim.  There are other such statements and errors made, maybe one of the worst things is the abuse of the idea of princess Diana, after all Sally raised he formerly-chunky form up the Z-list Celebrity ranking by whoring out the idea that she did readings for the Late, Great Lady Diana.  The leap in ol' Sally's career was majority due to a controversial book written about Di coming back from the afterlife to communicate with Psi-Sally, naturally No series revelations were expressed, just the obvious marketing scheme to ensure exposure.  She had a following before, yet after this and other things to launch her Psychic Career, she now has a wide following, millions made in TV deals, travels across the world, meets some quite famous people, and makes good sales on books detailing her experiences, and as a result of this business, which includes regular theatre events, she makes large sums of money.  Even after the blood sucking tax men have their share.

Interesting side note, Sally charges many times more than the normal rate for her readings, yet calls it a gift, I'm not sure if it's irony or hypocrisy, or a more complex breed of bullshit. More recent information from her website confirms she no longer does 1-2-1 readings, well unless your a rich TV star who needs a reading for hundreds of pounds, Sal now advises you got to her website psychics, she has a number of psychics on the pay roll who will supply readings for 1.50p/m, and Sally get a nice cut.  So unless your willing to get a reading in a stage event, which is doubtful, or personally contacts sally or a celebrity who can get you a 1-2-1.  Then you stuck with a bunch of moon lighting dinner-ladies who will serve you up a load of cheap nonsense after serving up another lot of cheapness to your children in a school hall.  I'm kidding, I'm sure they all have a Stanford PhD in spoon bending or something to suggest they aren't just cold readers, except they usually don't have any real qualifications and very few skills.  Speaking of which Sal has been said to have the paranormal by the Stanford institute, the same place which said Uri Gellar was real in the 1970s, and yes they are not part of that famous place of learning by the same name.  

The crazy thing with ol' sally is how she claims she never used an ear piece, doing a Peter Popoff, many say being fed information by someone who researches a few audience members to make a few impressive hits to not look to poor at what she does.  Truth is when you buy a trick they have your name and location, typically your address, they can research you, there are specialist programs to grab private data on you, track your activities, and even though costly services these tools can be used and covered by costs.  Sally claimed she did not use an ear piece, clearly in the images capture from the Bio channel she does wear one, a microphone with ear hook on one side, an earpiece with the other ear, but even if there was no earpiece news at all she could do almost as well by just throwing out cold readings.  When you have knowledge prior to the reading it's called Hot Reading, you can avoid the cold reading guesses and just give the researched data in a theatrical way.  Sally seems to do this too well for her own good?  One report from people over in the Republic of Ireland was of a theatre in Dublin, the audience were enjoying the show, but in the second half a window to the rear of the theatre room was left open, a number of people head in another voice the words sally was saying but a moment before her, as if she was being told what to say.  If you dismiss such claims you dismiss the people of Dublin who are real world witnesses to the trickery.  This event and story ballooned into a news media fest, and tabloid trash rags like the daily mail as usual went too far with their edits to make a good selling story, so Sal took the Mail to court, and won a big pay out over £100,000, and other pay outs were settled out of court, total sum may have been much higher.  The problem was not the idea that it could be tricks, it was a technicality on the use of language in a few article headings, including a Mail headline saying "SCAM", this was a bad move maybe pushed by editors who wanted a bigger sell story, and it back fired.  Yet, let us not be told she "never"used an ear piece, nor should we hear that Sally must be real if she beat a tabloid paper in court, and please lets not fall victim to the idea that sceptics are just closed-minded. 

The simple truth is there are believers who buy into mediumship and other relating ideas, they are credulous, not idiots, and the fraudsters take advantage, and get rich, they use obvious tricks and can't work in controlled conditions, they call critics closed-minded and say acceptance is open-minded, they say belief and experience is evidence and call science closed-minded for being critical, and to many people what was the religious impulse has a new age. 

Bad Psychic Fraud


The refutation of psychics is best done by them themselves offering nonsense and not seeing passed the simplest of lies.
