    What a spit in the face to the Reagan lovers. And such wonderful timing. Might have been more satisfying if they had waited until a few days after madam president's inauguration, but amazing nonetheless. The Masters have quite the sense of humor. :)

    Always thought this was fun fact about HW.

    On March 30, 1981, early into the administration, Reagan was shot and seriously wounded in Washington, D.C. Bush, second in command by the presidential line of succession, was in Fort Worth, Texas, and flew back to Washington immediately. Reagan's cabinet convened in the White House Situation Room, where they discussed various issues, including the availability of the Nuclear Football. When Bush's plane landed, his aides advised him to proceed directly to the White House by helicopter, as an image of the government still functioning despite the attack. Bush rejected the idea, responding, "Only the President lands on the South Lawn."[34] This made a positive impression on Reagan,[34] who recovered and returned to work within two weeks. From then on, the two men would have regular Thursday lunches in the Oval Office.


    It sucks he had to see Jeb get kicked around by Trump

    A little grist for the conspiracy mill

    The Hinckley Connection

    A little noticed relationship which has not received adequate attention in the establishment press – and probably never will – is that between the Bush’s and the Hinckleys – they were not strangers. The Vice President’s son planned to have dinner the day following the assassination with Scott Hinckley, brother of the alleged assassin, an event acknowledged by the younger Bush.

    George also had a lucrative relationship with John, Sr. which involved the latter’s generous contributions to George’s presidential campaign according to Sharon Bush, the wife of Neil. Later the Bush camp vehemently denied the story – not by Bush himself, but by his mouthpiece Peter Teeley.

    In another repeat of the John Kennedy cover-up, the FBI suppressed nearly all information about Hinckley including his financial records, relationships, and personality. Also suppressed were hand written notes Hinckley left in his cell describing conspiracies to eliminate Reagan.

    We suggest strongly that Hinckley was an MKULTRA subject who was programmed by the CIA – Bush’s CIA – to murder the president and to obsess about Foster as a plausible basis of his insanity. This technique was the same type used on Sirhan Sirhan in the murder of Robert Kennedy. Kennedy, of course, was not murdered by Sirhan Sirhan.

    Judge presents evidence for this in noting that Hinckley was taken finally to the Fort Butner South Carolina prison which was the first to call its cells “labs.” This prison was the site of the first mind control experiments done on prison populations. There Hinckley was programmed for the insane role he would be compelled to play in court.

    John W. Hinckley, father of the immediate assassin of Reagan, had a long history with World Vision, an ecumenical ministry of the Episcopal and Presbyterian (USA) churches. It is long known as a front for CIA activity in the developing world. Hinckley, Sr. also had a long association with Robert Ainsworth who was director of World Vision and held numerous governmental positions including advisor in Viet Nam.

    In the late 1960s, when Hinckley’s Vanderbilt Oil began failing, Bush’s Zapata Oil bailed him out rechristening the company Vanderbilt Energy. And thus it becomes clear why Sharon Bush let loose the tidbit about campaign contributions from Hinckley. It may well be true that Hinckley did not contribute to Bush's presidential campaign although we believe otherwise. The reason for raising the issue was so that the Bush camp could adamantly deny the contribution and thus insinutate that there was no relationship whatsoever between the two families. However, we believe that the facts show otherwise.

    Also of interest is that Hinckley's company was at risk of being levied a 2m USD fine by the Department of Energy, something that the acting president could easily make go away.

    I'm sure Crooked Hillary had something to do with this.

    If you didn't want to rehabilitate him you should have sent him to Texas and thrown a brick at him way back when.

    The video of the incident is insane. A secret servicemen actually whipped out an Uzi.



    I'm glad President Reagan survived the attack, despite getting shot.

    I don't understand. This makes it sound like the two men barely knew each other before the shooting.

    And that is how you deal with an active shooter. Everybody jump on his ass at once

    I know secret service doesn't like being told "good job" there as they still see it as a failure since their charge got shot, but the response time was still fucking impressive

    Reagan was a very closed off man who didn't trust many people and didn't let many into his inner circle.

    They also had a pretty contentious primary. HW was the establishment candidate who did everything in the best interest of he party. Reagan came more from the Goldwater camp.

    After this incident Reagan believed he could trust Bush and gave him more responsibility

    Completely backwards which fits the narrative of present day ideas.

    He should have been executed a long time ago. The amount of money spent on a person who tried to assassinate the president is disgusting.
    Now he is free???? Let's hope he does the right thing and throw it back in the faces of the people who released him.
