The Strange Visions Of
Psychic Jeanne Dixon
(Part I – The
By James Donahue
A recent entry to Aaron
Donahue’s “Perspectives” page, by a person identified only as Brother V, sparked some research into the
strange visions of the late psychic Jeanne Dixon.
Dixon, many will remember, was said to have gained fame because of her accurate prediction of the death of President J.
F. Kennedy. But this woman saw numerous other things that came true. Some of the events she predicted may still
be of great interest to the contemporary world.
The writer wrote that
he believed Dixon also was the mysterious “Madam X”
that made occasional calls to live radio shows, mostly disk jockeys with open telephone lines in the 1960s, to make her predictions.
I recall one warm summer
afternoon when I was painting the home of a friend. I had a portable radio on as I worked and was listening to one of the
stations in nearby Chicago to get music and news of the day.
That was the first and only time that I ever heard Madam X.
It was the year 1960,
when Kennedy was among the contenders for the Democratic Party presidency. America
was enthralled by Kennedy’s amazing charisma, right from the first, and many predicted that he would win the nomination
during the looming party convention. But America
had never had a Catholic president prior to Kennedy, and that seemed to be a major bone of contention.
When Madam X called,
it was clear that the radio host recognized her voice, and that they had spoken before. “John Kennedy will be our next
elected president,” she said. “But he will be our last real president. After that, America will have something else.”
In the light of the fact
that Kennedy became a martyred president, murdered under mysterious circumstances in Dallas,
Texas only three years later, I never forgot that prediction. It also led me
to follow the conspiracy theorists with great interest, and carry a deep suspicion of every American president that has held
Truly, if one studies
the path America has followed since that fateful day in Dallas, it has been one primarily favoring big business and organized crime. Some times I
have difficulty distinguishing between the two.
As a newspaper reporter
I noticed a slow but steady shift in policy as smaller, independent and family-owned news organizations were gobbled up by
big national corporations. Today, few if any newspapers, radio and television stations operate outside the cloak of one of
these major corporate giants. This has led to controlled news that pitches subtle but constant propaganda into the minds of
Kennedy succeeded Dwight
D. Eisenhower when he took office. It was Eisenhower, a popular general that successfully oversaw the Allied Invasion of Europe
during World War II, who launched American adventures in Vietnam.
But our involvement by the time Kennedy took office was only on an advisory capacity, helping the South Vietnamese fight against
Communist Viet Cong forces attempting to take over the country from the north.
Kennedy appeared to oppose
this war, which was still being called a “police action.” It is said that he had plans to start scaling down American
involvement and bringing troops home. After his death, Lyndon B. Johnson took us on a completely different tack. He escalated
our involvement, turning Vietnam into
a national disaster.
Our involvement in Vietnam continued until March, 1973, when the South Vietnamese lost the war and U. S. troops were withdrawn in defeat. By the time the conflict
ended, 58,202 servicemen and women were dead. This total includes those missing in action and soldiers that died from injuries
sustained in battle. Another 303,704 were injured with an estimated 75,000 soldiers left disabled.
While U.S. generals claim we never lost a battle, in the end, the
war was lost. American GIs and even high ranking officers complained that they were unable to win because the entire operation
was controlled from Washington. They never were allowed
to use the full strength of American forces to flush out the Viet Cong and drive them north into China. Thus the war raged for year after year, with our finest young men coming
home in body bags. Few American communities escaped the agony of having to bury a casualty of that war.
At the time, however,
big business interests in America thrived.
They were geared up to produce all of the war machinery needed to keep this war operating for years. Also the drug trafficking
was noticeably on the increase. Our soldiers were an easy prey to drugs that were readily available in Vietnam. That hot jungle was a terrible place to fight a war
and many of our troops went into battle under the influence of narcotics.
They brought their love
of drugs home with them.
The president following
Johnson was Richard M. Nixon. It was Nixon that launched the first salvo of the nation’s war on drugs. It was during
his term that Congress went along with him, passing laws banning amphetamine and LSD. Marijuana already was banned.
It was President Ronald
Reagan that put the final stamp on the War on Drugs. He openly declared this a national war, and persuaded our legislators
to begin pouring money into anti-drug educational programs and giving money to police for special drug task force units to
stop the black market sales of narcotics on the streets of America.
All of this forced the
price of marijuana, LSD, amphetamine, and all of the opiate drugs so high that organized criminals were getting very rich.
It was all a farce. The only people being arrested and jailed were the local junkies that were peddling a few joints of marijuana
and bags of cocaine on the streets to help feed the price of their habits. The real marketers of the stuff were rarely caught.
Today, under President
George W. Bush, the movement appears to be giving similar favors to big business interests. While there always was an undercurrent,
it was never as blatant as it has been under the Bush Administration.
In a nutshell, the big
picture has been to tax the masses, send their children off to war, and permit gross pollution of the environment and a rape
of the world’s natural resources in the interest of huge financial rewards.
The nation is being run
by a few very wealthy gangsters who own Washington, lock-stock-and-barrel.
Thus Madam X, alias Jeanne
Dixon, was quite right when she said Kennedy would be our last real elected president. After Kennedy, we have, indeed, had
