The Medium Who Stares at Goats

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009


Ireland’s medium, Tom Colton, pictured staring at the lovely Arthur, the 7 month old Saanim goat, just like George Clooney in the film ‘Men Who Stare At Goats’, which is  released this week.

Tom  says: “In the film ‘Men Who Stare At Goats’ George Clooney plays a psychic who can make a goat’s heart stop just by staring at it, whereas at my show this week at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Blanchardstown, the heart stopping performance will purely involve humans.”

Tom Colton can be caught at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Blanchardstown, Dublin on Thursday 12th November as part of his national ‘Feel The Spirit’ tour.

Note: No animals where hurt or harmed during the course of this photo shoot.  Tom does not condone cruelty against animals.

Background to ‘Men Who Stare At Goats’

In 1979 a secret unit was established by the most gifted minds within the US Army. Defying all known accepted military practice – and indeed, the laws of physics – they believed that a soldier could adopt the cloak of invisibility, pass cleanly through walls and, perhaps most chillingly, kill goats just by staring at them. Entrusted with defending America from all known adversaries, they were the First Earth Battalion. And they really weren’t joking. The evolution of these activities over the past three decades is still alive and well  today within US Homeland Security and post-war Iraq.

It is not only the US military that uses psychic mediums to help them with their work.  Many law enforcement agencies throughout the world use psychic mediums to help then solve cases that have become stagnant or where they can’t find physical evidence to solve a case, the medium is brought in to help them find the evidence through the use of their psychic abilities or their connection and information from the spirit world.  This is referred to as psychic detective work.  Programs like Psychic Private Eye with Colin Fry, Tony Stockwell and TJ Higgs shows how mediums work to get information from the spirit world and from the feelings and energies around places where people have passed in order to solve cases and bring new evidence to the police to help them further their investigations.
