I was checking in ATS community to find anything about Jeane Dixon, and well honestly after reading the comments in this thread I became astonished of
how lack of certainty and misinforming is what is posted here, it is clearly a biased approach to a person that has been acknowledged by many as a
Many of the comments posted here are half truths or definitively distorted versions of what she really said.
- She Predicted clearly in May 1956, Parade Magazine, that the President elected in 1960 would be Democratic, young and also that his presidency was
going to be extremely labored, a difficult one, and of course that he was going to die in office.
- Mrs Dixon didn't say that JFK was not going to win the election of 1960, to the contrary, what she meant with comments to the press after that
election is that he was not going to end successfully his Presidency.
- After the election of 1960, she commented to journalists that she frankly foresaw Nixon being elected President, her comment was after the result,
and referred not to what it was already a fact but to future events ,she clearly was the first to predict that Nixon was also going to be President of
Before Richard Nixon no Vicepresident in office ever had been elected President and none former and defeated nominee ever became elected President,
what makes her prediction remarkable, against all the odds.
Perhaps many skeptical want to see on this comment something doubtful around her but the fact is that Richard Nixon never forgot her prediction.
- She predicted successfully that Russia was going to launch the Sputnik, and soon after in 1958 that they were going to be the first to reach the
moon, and in that context she was quite right, since the Luna spacecrafts of the USSR were the first ones to orbit around, to take pictures of the
hidden side and to land on the moon, they were not manned ones of course , just robotic telecontrolled ones, but she never said that the artifacts
were going to be carrying actual people.
The Presidential election of 1960 was not the only correctly predicted one along her career:
- Dixon predicted the defeat of Winston Churchill in the elections of 1944 in England , as well as the Independence of India and the assassination
of M. Gandhi,and also the death of the UN General secretary D. Hammarskoljd in the 1960s.
She also predicted correctly the victory of Harry Truman over Dewey in 1948 election, the coup d'état against Malenkov in the USSR in the 1950s,
and the arise and fall of Nikita Khrushchev, as well as the election of President Dwight Eisenhower.
It is true that there was no WWIII in 1958, in the sea of China, but in between that year and 1960 a huge international crisis emerged for the control
of Quemoy and Matsu islands in between Taiwan and Beijing that challenge the world peace and was only stopped thanks to an exhaustive diplomatic
action of the United Nations in moments of great tension in between USA, USSR and The Peoples Republic of China.
Only during the Soviet missiles in Cuba crisis of 1962 the world was so close to a generalized conflict in between the superpowers as it was in the
Straight of Taiwan crisis of 1958-59
- In 1973 , as a personal adviser of Nixon, she predicted that America was going to suffer at future a wave of Islamic terrorism in its territory,
and that prediction made her the first seer in to see the events that drove to the Sept 11th 2001 attack plus all what we ha seen since then.
I hope these comments contribute to enrich this thread and give it more objectivity and impartiality, since it is very easy to talk behind the back of
somebody already dead to discredit her legacy.
Of course she sometimes failed to see clearly an event or to date it correctly in the line time, but her score of achievements as a seer is so high
that there is even who has tried to claim that she was collecting privileged information from the FBI, something that is ridicule since many of the
events she predicted were absolutely out of the scope of the possibilities of forecast of that agency.
Her successful predictions had a common denominator, they represented a lot of improbable issues coinciding against all the odds, one example is her
1956 prediction of a Young Democratic President elected in 1960 and that was going to die in office, or the ulterior election of Nixon in 1968.
