Mel Ayton’s Hunting the President: Threats, Plots, and Assassination Attempts—From FDR to Obama..

The author of this article has almost copied verbatim the account in "The United States of America vs. Ronald Barbour" and did not contact me, my attorney, or read any of the numerous articles that contest the Government's finding of guilt on many points (1) I did not suffer from any mental illness - and this was verified by examination at the Veterans' Hospital in Tampa, Florida during 2002. (2) I was wrongly convicted under USC 871 "Threat Against The President" but rather convicted under USC 1751 "Attempted Assassination of the President" - there is no evidence that I was ever within a 1,000 miles of President Clinton. (3) The audiotape that was the primary piece of evidence at my trial was an edited tape with no chain of custody - Also, it was produced in violation of the Florida wiretap statutes that require the permission of both parties in a recorded conversation.(4) I was a decorated retired member of the U.S. Army on a pension. I did not have to work, but did anyway to make higher earnings. (5) I worked full time as a limo driver for Mears Transportation in Orlando, Florida. I was fired because of my arrest, but at the time of the incident I had a full time job.

There are many additional errors in this article and the author made no attempt to contact me before publication of the book. After it appeared on best seller lists, I contacted him by way of Amazon when he published it on Kindle. I requested that he make the corrections and offered evidence; however, he doubled down on the lies.

Bill Clinton was nearly assassinated in 1994 by Ronald Gene Barbour, a veteran and unemployed limousine driver who suffered from severe depression.


On February 3, 1994 at 2 p.m. EDT, I was arrested by the U.S. Secret Service for the exercise of my First Amendment rights in that I was highly critical of President William Jefferson Clinton, the first president to impeached since Andrew Johnson in 1868, and felon (not indicted) who committed two serious federal crimes during the Lewinsky oral sex scandal of 1998.

During the course of the investigation of my alleged crime - the attempted assassination of President Clinton - the U.S. Secret Service would continue to rape the U.S. Constitution with violations of my civil rights under the 4th, 5th, 6th and 14th Amendments. They would also ignore the "Great Writ" - The Writ of Habeas Corpus and kidnap me for a period of nearly two weeks in a locked mental ward.

In due course, I would come to trial and be found guilty of "only" one offense of the many charges filed against me on February 17, 1994 - 18 USC 871 - "Threat against the president" and sentenced to five years in federal prison, three years probation and a fine of $250,000. I would serve this sentence in a number of federal prisons and be twice the victim of attempted assassination by fellow inmates, perhaps at the direction of the U.S. Secret Service. I would be released on June 26, 1998 to start life again after being illegally imprisoned in some of the worse correctional facilities in the United States.

I successfully completed my court ordered three years of probation on June 26, 2001 with no violations. This marked the closure of my case, "The United States of America v. Ronald Gene Barbour." I was informed by my probation officer that if I kept a "clean nose" the U.S. Federal Government had no more interest in me. In short, he said I was free as a bird! However, the U.S. Secret Service had other ideas...


The story is told here in detail on this website.

The short of it is that I have been ruthlessly targeted as a "PERSON OF INTEREST" by the U.S. Secret Service for the last seventeen years at the cost of millions of taxpayer dollars and countless man hours of useless work by the U.S. Secret Service. This official terrorism has only served to keep me poor unemployed and on the run. Since 2001 I have lived in the following states: Florida, Texas, California, Nevada, Utah and Montana in a quest for privacy. The outcome is always the same: The U.S. Secret Service starts a campaign against my employers and landlords - In time I'm usually asked to move on. Some years ago "Les Miz" was popular as a Broadway play and movie: I'm living "Les Miz" on a daily basis. I own the role of Jean Val Jean.

I have to ask myself - what is the real reason behind the civil war launched against me by the U.S. Secret Service? I think the official reason they would give that I am a threat to the presidency runs contrary to the facts. The real reason for this "Secret Civil War" has to do with the fact that I'm a proud WASP Southerner, decorated U.S. Army veteran and prolific writer who owns five blogs and continues to be highly critical of the U.S. Secret Service and the presidency. I was told by Senior Special Agent John Francis McKenna at FCI Coleman on March 15, 1998 that I was not to publish anything concerning my case or its aftermath; that for me the First Amendment did not exist.
