Jewish Site Claims LBJ Was a Jew

The 5 Towns Jewish Times article excerpted below shows a definite, consistent pattern of whoring for Jewish interests at the expense of White American interests on the part of Lyndon Baines Johnson — and suggests a biological explanation.

A FEW MONTHS AGO, the Associated Press reported that newly released tapes from US president Lyndon Johnson’s White House office showed LBJ’s “personal and often emotional connection to Israel.” The news agency pointed out that during the Johnson presidency (1963-1969), “the United States became Israel’s chief diplomatic ally and primary arms supplier.”

But the news report does little to reveal the full historical extent of Johnson’s actions on behalf of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. Most students of the Arab-Israeli conflict can identify Johnson as the president during the 1967 war. But few know about LBJ’s actions to rescue hundreds of endangered Jews during the Holocaust — actions that could have thrown him out of Congress and into jail. Indeed, the title of “Righteous Gentile” is certainly appropriate in the case of the Texan, whose centennial year is being commemorated this year. Appropriately enough, the annual Jerusalem Conference announced this week that it will honor Johnson.

Historians have revealed that Johnson, while serving as a young congressman in 1938 and 1939, arranged for visas to be supplied to Jews in Warsaw, and oversaw the apparently illegal immigration of hundreds of Jews through the port of Galveston, Texas….

A key resource for uncovering LBJ’s pro-Jewish activity is the unpublished 1989 doctoral thesis by University of Texas student Louis Gomolak, “Prologue: LBJ’s Foreign Affairs Background, 1908-1948.” Johnson’s activities were confirmed by other historians in interviews with his wife, family members and political associates.

Research into Johnson’s personal history indicates that he inherited his concern for the Jewish people from his family. His aunt Jessie Johnson Hatcher, a major influence on LBJ, was a member of the Zionist Organization of America. According to Gomolak, Aunt Jessie had nurtured LBJ’s commitment to befriending Jews for 50 years. As a young boy, Lyndon watched his politically active grandfather “Big Sam” and father “Little Sam” seek clemency for Leo Frank, the Jewish victim of a blood libel in Atlanta. Frank was lynched by a mob in 1915, and the Ku Klux Klan in Texas threatened to kill the Johnsons. The Johnsons later told friends that Lyndon’s family hid in their cellar while his father and uncles stood guard with shotguns on their porch in case of KKK attacks. Johnson’s speech writer later stated, “Johnson often cited Leo Frank’s lynching as the source of his opposition to both anti-Semitism and isolationism.”

Already in 1934 — four years before Chamberlain’s Munich sellout to Hitler — Johnson was keenly alert to the dangers of Nazism and presented a book of essays, Nazism: An Assault on Civilization, to the 21-year-old woman he was courting, Claudia Taylor — later known as “Lady Bird” Johnson. It was an incredible engagement present.

Five days after taking office in 1937, LBJ broke with the “Dixiecrats” and supported an immigration bill that would naturalize illegal aliens, mostly Jews from Lithuania and Poland. In 1938, Johnson was told of a young Austrian Jewish musician who was about to be deported from the United States. With an element of subterfuge, LBJ sent him to the US Consulate in Havana to obtain a residency permit. Erich Leinsdorf, the world famous musician and conductor, credited LBJ for saving his life.

That same year, LBJ warned Jewish friend, Jim Novy, that European Jews faced annihilation. “Get as many Jewish people as possible out of Germany and Poland,” were Johnson’s instructions. Somehow, Johnson provided him with a pile of signed immigration papers that were used to get 42 Jews out of Warsaw. But that wasn’t enough. According to historian James M. Smallwood, Congressman Johnson used legal and sometimes illegal methods to smuggle “hundreds of Jews into Texas, using Galveston as the entry port. Enough money could buy false passports and fake visas in Cuba, Mexico and other Latin American countries. Johnson smuggled boatloads and planeloads of Jews into Texas. He hid them in the Texas National Youth Administration. Johnson saved at least four or five hundred Jews, possibly more.”

During World War II Johnson joined Novy at a small Austin gathering to sell $65,000 in war bonds. According to Gomolak, Novy and Johnson then raised a very “substantial sum for arms for Jewish underground fighters in Palestine.” One source cited by the historian reports that “Novy and Johnson had been secretly shipping heavy crates labeled ‘Texas Grapefruit’ — but containing arms — to Jewish underground ‘freedom fighters’ in Palestine.”

On June 4, 1945, Johnson visited Dachau. According to Smallwood, Lady Bird later recalled that when her husband returned home, “he was still shaken, stunned, terrorized, and bursting with an overpowering revulsion and incredulous horror at what he had seen.”

A decade later while serving in the Senate, Johnson blocked the Eisenhower administration’s attempts to apply sanctions against Israel following the 1956 Sinai Campaign. “The indefatigable Johnson had never ceased pressure on the administration,” wrote I.L. “Si” Kenen, the head of AIPAC at the time. As Senate majority leader, Johnson consistently blocked the anti-Israel initiatives of his fellow Democrat, William Fulbright, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Among Johnson’s closest advisers during this period were several strong pro-Israel advocates, including Benjamin Cohen (who 30 years earlier was the liaison between Supreme Court justice Louis Brandeis and Chaim Weizmann) and Abe Fortas, the legendary Washington “insider.”

Johnson’s concern for the Jewish people continued through his presidency. Soon after taking office in the aftermath of John F. Kennedy’s assassination in 1963, Johnson told an Israeli diplomat, “You have lost a very great friend, but you have found a better one.” Just one month after succeeding Kennedy, LBJ attended the December 1963 dedication of the Agudas Achim Synagogue in Austin. Novy opened the ceremony by saying to Johnson, “We can’t thank him enough for all those Jews he got out of Germany during the days of Hitler.” Lady Bird would later describe the day, according to Gomolak: “Person after person plucked at my sleeve and said, ‘I wouldn’t be here today if it wasn’t for him. He helped me get out.’” Lady Bird elaborated, “Jews had been woven into the warp and woof of all [Lyndon’s] years.”

The prelude to the 1967 war was a terrifying period for Israel, with the US State Department led by the historically unfriendly Dean Rusk urging an evenhanded policy despite Arab threats and acts of aggression. Johnson held no such illusions. After the war he placed the blame firmly on Egypt: “If a single act of folly was more responsible for this explosion than any other, it was the arbitrary and dangerous announced decision [by Egypt that the Strait of Tiran would be closed [to Israeli ships and Israeli-bound cargo].”

Kennedy was the first president to approve the sale of defensive US weapons to Israel, specifically Hawk anti-aircraft missiles. But Johnson approved tanks and fighter jets, all vital after the 1967 war when France imposed a freeze on sales to Israel. Yehuda Avner recently described on these pages prime minister Levi Eshkol’s successful appeal for these weapons on a visit to the LBJ ranch. Israel won the 1967 war, and Johnson worked to make sure it also won the peace. “I sure as hell want to be careful and not run out on little Israel,” Johnson said in a March 1968 conversation with his ambassador to the United Nations, Arthur Goldberg, according to White House tapes recently released.

Soon after the 1967 war, Soviet premier Aleksei Kosygin asked Johnson at the Glassboro Summit why the US supported Israel when there were 80 million Arabs and only three million Israelis. “Because it is a right thing to do,” responded the straight-shooting Texan.

The crafting of UN Resolution 242 in November 1967 was done under Johnson’s scrutiny. The call for “secure and recognized boundaries” was critical. The American and British drafters of the resolution opposed Israel returning all the territories captured in the war. In September 1968, Johnson explained, “We are not the ones to say where other nations should draw lines between them that will assure each the greatest security. It is clear, however, that a return to the situation of 4 June 1967 will not bring peace. There must be secure and there must be recognized borders. Some such lines must be agreed to by the neighbors involved.” Goldberg later noted, “Resolution 242 in no way refers to Jerusalem, and this omission was deliberate.” This historic diplomacy was conducted under Johnson’s stewardship, as Goldberg related in oral history to the Johnson Library. “I must say for Johnson,” Goldberg stated. “He gave me great personal support.”

Robert David Johnson, a professor of history at Brooklyn College, recently wrote in The New York Sun, Johnson’s policies stemmed more from personal concerns — his friendship with leading Zionists, his belief that America had a moral obligation to bolster Israeli security and his conception of Israel as a frontier land much like his home state of Texas. His personal concerns led him to intervene when he felt that the State or Defense departments had insufficiently appreciated Israel’s diplomatic or military needs.”

President Johnson firmly pointed American policy in a pro-Israel direction. In a historical context, the American emergency airlift to Israel in 1973, the constant diplomatic support, the economic and military assistance and the strategic bonds between the two countries can all be credited to the seeds planted by LBJ.

Additional Note

Lyndon Johnson’s maternal ancestors, the Huffmans, apparently 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.

According to Jewish law, if a person’s mother is Jewish, then that person is automatically Jewish, regardless of the father’s ethnicity or religion. The facts indicate that both of Lyndon Johnson’s great-grandparents, on the maternal side, were Jewish.

These were the grandparents of Lyndon’s mother, Rebecca Baines. Their names were John S. Huffman and Mary Elizabeth Perrin. John Huffman’s mother was Suzanne Ament, a common Jewish name. Perrin is also a common Jewish name.

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. The line of Jewish mothers can be traced back three generations in Lyndon Johnson’s family tree. There is little doubt that he was Jewish.

Even after all of these years, I can still recall the

Brilliant, I never knew.

To the list of charges in this indictment you might add what I consider the most horrifying.

Final Judgement: The Missing Link in the JFK Assassination Conspiracy
— Michael Collins Piper (1993)

The purport of which is that Kennedy was assassinated because he opposed the acquisition of nuclear weapons by Israel. The Mossad was supposed to have played a large part in the conspiracy. Once LBJ succeeded Kennedy, the American policy toward Israel’s acquisition of nuclear weapons flipped. A coincidence? I think not.

Harry Moore says, We know the fruits of this animal. Do we ever!?! Vietnam, Immigration Act, Voting Rights Act; putting Jew interests first… But keep your humor, race fans. Our fortunes will be reversed if we will it. I shared this link with a classmate from high school, knowing he’d get a chuckle from the African-American names listed by that attorney, here, at the bottom: One has to go there and read those names in the appendix first to appreciate what my ol’ school chum wrote back: — “L-a” – pronounced Ladasha… Da dash be silent. Had a friend from Down East [North Carolina] in the 60s. His father was the only doctor for miles. He had a friend, another doctor, who lived farther East [deeper into “Black Carolina”].… Read more »

Some of the video claims are a little dodgy. However not all. IMO no foreign national should hold any official position in the US government. It is ridiculously obvious why. Only citizens should vote as well.

Has anybody noticed how much Lyndon Johnson looked like that ugly mutt of a woman, Golda Meir, who used to be Prime Minister of Israel? They could have passed for twins.

For many of the unknowing, it will shine a brighter light on the murder and cover-up of JFK. Also the continued Top Secret cover-up 50 years later of the Israeli’s murderous attack on the USS Liberty. Both have LBJ’s unmistakable stamp written all over them. Even though LBJ is no longer alive the same kind of “footprints” are unmistakable during the much larger 9/11 and it’s cover-up.

Who we should be cheering for and saluting their courage and stamina in the fight for their stolen lands and very lives, are the Palestinians. They have been surviving this evil Talmud cult for over 60 years. While the rest of the world has stood by in silence.

LBJ even visited the crew of the Liberty, at the hospital in Cyprus.
His words to Captain McGonagall are reputed to have been “If you ever mention this to anyone I shall throw you in prison. We will not embarrass our friend, Israel”.

What a stinking traitor. There is no other word for it.

But now that I am made aware of the Johnson’s true ancestry, it makes more sense.

Around the centenary of LBJ’s birthday, Commentary, the neoconservative magazine of the American Jewish Committee, published an article by Jason Maoz, “Lyndon Johnson, Friend of the Jews.” Maoz cites many proofs that LBJ was good for the Jews, and attributes his affinity for Jews to Christadelphian influence: “While it was not widely known during his lifetime, Johnson’s affinity for Jews stemmed from early familial influences; his paternal grandfather and a number of other relatives were Christadelphians — fundamentalist Christians who believed the Jews would return to Palestine and create a new Jewish state. His grandfather would admonish young Lyndon to ‘Take care of the Jews. . . . Consider them your friends and help them any way you can.’” The Christadelphians appear to have been advocates of Zionism since… Read more »

Whether Johnson was a Jew or not is largely a moot point. He advanced their agenda with a vengeance. I personally think he was intimately involved with the assassination of Kennedy and I wish there was a hell so that people like this man could get their just rewards.

27 June, 2019 6:59 pm

Even if LBJ was not a biological jew, he was certainly a spiritual one. He did so much damage to American society that it depresses me to think about it. Two of the most destructive presidents we’ve ever had have been white men from the supposedly more conservative southern US (Johnson and Clinton).

Found Hawking’s A Brief History of Time… (Bantam Trade Paper (1990)), for a dime, last month, and noticed in the appendix that [antifascist-pacifist] “Einstein’s second great cause was Zionism… In 1933… in the US and deciding not to return to Germany… fearing that German scientists would develop a nuclear bomb, proposed that the United States should develop its own… eventually promoting international control of nuclear weaponry… His vocal support for the Zionist cause was duly recognized in 1952, when he was offered the presidency of Israel…”
