MYTHBUSTER: Targeting Our Presidents

The Left promotes the myth that Democrat is the Party of Peace, while Republicans and Right-Wingers are dangerously violent.

But history demonstrates that Republican presidents have been assaulted by their enemies twice as often.

Close calls:  
Andrew Jackson – A man with two guns shot at the President at point blank range. Both guns misfired and the man was arrested and found not guilty by reason of insanity. When later tested by police, both pistols fired perfectly.

Abraham Lincoln – As Lincoln was riding to the Soldiers’ Home, a shot fired from the bushes caused his horse to bolt, and he lost his hat; when soldiers retrieved the hat, they found a bullet hole in it.

Harry S. Truman – Two Puerto Rican pro-independence activists attempted to murder Truman in his home. A violent gun battle ensued that left one would-be assassin and one policeman dead.

Gerald Ford – Ford was assaulted by another woman with a gun in San Francisco, CA.  A bystander grabbed the shooter’s arm, causing the shot to miss the president.

Bill Clinton – In Manila, the Secret Service suspected an attack and ordered Clinton’s motorcade be re-routed. A bomb was found under the bridge he had been scheduled to cross. Subsequent U.S. investigation found the attack had been masterminded by Osama bin Laden.

George W. Bush – During a speech in the Freedom Square in Tbilisi, Georgia, a man threw a live hand grenade towards the podium. A Georgian official grabbed it before it could explode.

Failure due in large part to assailant’s ineptitude:

Gerald Ford – Ford was assaulted by a woman with a gun in Sacramento, CA. A Secret Service agent foiled the attempt. The gun was loaded, but there was no bullet in the firing chamber.

George W. Bush – A man outside the perimeter fence shot towards the White House; the Secret Service took him down. The shooter’s obstructed angle view prevented the bullets from reaching the White House.

Richard Nixon – An attempt to kill Nixon by crashing a commercial airliner into the White House was foiled by an officer before the hijacker, who had killed the pilot and co-pilot, could take off.

Bill Clinton – A man at the fence fired at the White House with a semi-automatic rifle. Clinton was inside the White House Residence and was never in any danger.

Protesting the HHS mandate

Click on graphic to embiggen.

The HHS Obamacare mandate will require all employers to provide contraception, sterilization and abortion-causing drugs in their insurance coverage (without co-payment). Both the religious exception and the so-called Obama compromise are so narrow that they don’t cover most religiously-based institutions.

A search of public records has shown that none of the 15 members of the HHS committee has ever demonstrated any support whatsoever for the pro-life position, despite the undeniable fact that this is the majority position in America.

Worse, the vast majority of the 15 members of the committee that created the mandate have strong relationships with pro-abortion groups and activities:

Claire Brindis – Member of NARAL’s Board of Directors and one of it’s “most steadfast and generous donors.”

Angela Diaz – Former board member of Physicians for Reproductive Choice; former senior vice president of the International Women’s Health Coalition, an advocacy group dedicated to the premise that abortion and contraception are “universal and inalienable” human rights.

Paula A. Johnson – Chairwoman of Planned Parenthood League of Massachusetts; affiliated with (NOW); winner of NARAL’s 2011 “Champion for Choice” award.

Magda G. Peck – Board of Directors of Planned Parenthood of Nebraska and Council Bluffs (served as both vice chair and chair); associated with a host of other organizations that advocate for abortion and free access to contraception.

Alina Salganicoff – Vice President and Director of Women’s Health Policy at the Kaiser Family Foundation, a major proponent of abortion and contraception on demand.

Donations to pro-abortion political campaigns: Linda Rosenstock (over $40,000); Kimberly Gregory ($35,200); Paula A. Johnson (more than $30,000); Francisco Garcia (between $11,750 and $13,000); Carol Weisman ($4,500); Roberta Ness (at least $2,500); E. Albert Reece ($1,000);  Alina Salganicoff ($950).
