Lyndon B. Johnson
Lyndon Baines Johnson (August 27th, 1908 – January 22nd, 1973), often referred to as LBJ, recently claimed as the first Jewish president by a Jewish News outlet. He served as the 36th President of the United States from 1963 to 1969, assuming the office after serving as the 37th Vice President of the United States from 1961 to 1963. Both of Johnson’s great-grandparents, on the maternal side, were Jewish John S. Huffman and Mary Elizabeth Perrin, and migrated to Frederick, Maryland from Germany sometime in the mid-eighteenth century. Later they moved to Bourbon, Kentucky and eventually settled in Texas in the mid-to-late nineteenth century. Huffman and Perrin had a daughter, Ruth Ament Huffman, who married Joseph Baines and together they had a daughter, Rebekah Baines, Lyndon Johnson’s mother. Johnson was born near Stonewall, Texas, in a small farmhouse on the Pedernales River. As young boy, Lyndon watched his Father and Grandfather seek clemency for Jewish child rapist and murderer Leo Frank. While his aunt Jessie Johnson Hatcher, a major influence on Johnson, was a member of the Zionist Organization of America and nurtured his commitment to befriending Jews for 50 years. After taking office in 1937, Johnson broke with the “Dixiecrats” and supported an immigration bill that would naturalize illegal aliens, mostly itinerant Jews from Lithuania and Poland. Then between 1938 and 1939, Johnson arranged for visas to be supplied to itinerant Jews in Warsaw, and oversaw the importation of hundreds of those Jews through the port of Galveston, Texas. By the outbreak of WWII Johnson had raised a very “substantial sum” for arms for Jewish terrorists occupying Palestine. One source reported that “Novy and Johnson had been secretly shipping heavy crates labelled ‘Texas Grapefruit’ – but containing arms” to Jewish terrorists in Palestine. Just one month after succeeding Kennedy, Johnson attended the December 1963 dedication of the Agudas Achim Synagogue in Austin, Texas now overflowing with the itinerant criminal tribe due to his work. Under Johnson’s presidency Communism is allowed to gain ideological ascendency at home with the civil rights movement and internationally through the contrived loss of the Vietnam War. It is also believed that Johnson personally gave the order to Jewish terrorist Israel to bomb and utterly destroy the USS Liberty and its entire crew of 294 Americans and order that rescue operations be called back, at least twice.
