Apparently she predicted that the second child of Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau and his young wife Margaret would be a girl (it was a boy), and that the Russians would be the first to put men on the moon...

But no mention anywhere the about the killing of all male babies........

Almost sounds like something Herbert W. Armstrong would say.

NONE of his prophecies ever came to pass and yet people today are STILL gullible enough to support them.

Some of Jeane Dixon's did.

She tried to warn J F Kennedy that he was going to be assassinated if I remember correctly.


Dixon reportedly predicted the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. In the May 13, 1956, issue of Parade Magazine she wrote that the 1960 presidential election would be "dominated by labor and won by a Democrat" who would then go on to "[B]e assassinated or die in office though not necessarily in his first term." She later admitted, “During the 1960 election, I saw Richard Nixon as the winner”,[11] and at the time made unequivocal predictions that JFK would fail to win the election.[12] In the 1956 pronouncement, she merely stated that a President would "be assassinated or die in office", not necessarily that one would be assassinated. By emphasizing a few coincidentally correct predictions and ignoring those that were wrong, she acquired both fame and notoriety. The ability to persuade the public in this matter is known as the 'Jeane Dixon effect'.


Jeane Dixon-Wiki


Never heard about a prediction of all male children dying though.

The wiki thing is highly skeptical of her, but then, that goes for all psychics, skeptics abound...lol

There is a good reason for all that skepticism.

For example, below are some of her other "predictions":

- there would be a cure for cancer in 1967

- peace on earth by the year 2000

- Richard Nixon would serve his country well

- the Soviets would beat the U.S. to the moon

- World War III would begin in 1958

According to The Skeptic's Dictionary she was never correct in ANY prediction of any consequence.

When someone makes as many predictions as Dixon did, you are bound to be correct some of the time.


"Jeane Dixon was an astrologer and alleged psychic who did not predict the assassination of President Kennedy." www.skepdic.com...


Of course, these Nostradamus-like hits (they wrote without a trace of irony) came among literally hundreds that were wholly false, such as predicting the Soviet Union would be first to land on the moon.

But here's the real problem--in 1960, she forecast that Kennedy would not win the coming election. Yes, that's right. Although she is credited with predicting his assassination because of her 1956 statement, her 1960 one is routinely ignored by those who perpetuate this myth. And unlike her previous one, it couldn't be more specific: She predicted clearly that "John F. Kennedy would fail to win the presidency."

Well, if he wasn't going to win, how could she have predicted that he would be assassinated in office?

The answer: She didn't. Instead she made a lot of vague predictions, some of which contradicted each other, and then relied on people to only remember those which could somehow be worked into a claimed "hit" with 20/20 hindsight while forgetting the far-more-numerous misses. This same technique is used all over the globe today. And people still fall for it. P.T. Barnum would be proud.

You get a star for that!


That is the problem with making global predictions, to many things can and do change.
One of the residents in my building worked with Jeane Dixon, or so he says, and he swears she was a fraud. But personally, I hold no opinion other than her predictions speak for themselves.
