"America's Prophet" Did Not See That Coming (with Lofchie Comment)

The SEC has announced that, on February 11, 2013, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York entered default judgments against Sean David Morton, who bills himself as "America's Prophet," his wife, and various corporate shell entities. In addition to ordering permanent injunctions from violating antifraud and registration statutes and rule, the defendants were ordered to disgorge, jointly and severally, a total of $11,533,382.18. Relief defendants Melissa Morton and the Prophecy Research Institute, the Mortons' nonprofit religious organization, were ordered to disgorge a total of $574,128.23. According to the Commission's complaint, Morton fraudulently raised more than $5 million from over 100 investors for his investment group, which he called the Delphi Associates Investment Group.

Lofchie Comment: If you have some time to kill, and you like to follow eccentric connections, take a look at Mr. Morton's website with its weird combination of name-dropping (not to mention location-dropping), references to numerous religions and religious figures, science fiction books, as well as on-line shopping options. His biography likewise leads in odd directions: there are discussions in Wikipedia of both Elizabeth Targ and her father Russell Targ (the developer of Remote Viewing), although I could find nothing on the James Spottiswoode "who did his Ph.D. thesis on their work while at Stanford."

Here is Sean David Morton's review of Sean David Morton's book, Sands of Time:

"SANDS OF TIME
is truly remarkable. A rare and precious look behind the curtain of Covert Ops into the Black World of super-technology with enough hard science to convince even the most cynical skeptic. It solves so many of the mysteries that have baffled researchers since the Roswell crash in 1947, and shows us, once again, that all we have come to accept as reality, is wrong. Read this book and NEVER BE THE SAME! "

In a few sentences, he covers technology, UFOs, espionage, the nature of reality, and the transformation of perception. On the downside, his grammar is not so great, and I don't like the use of "rare and precious" as adjectives modifying the word "look."
