Conspiracy Theories: The Shooting Of Ronald Reagan

Darren Taylor

On March 30, 1981, a deranged young man attempted to assassinate U.S. President Ronald Reagan. Just another gun nut, acting on his own? Or was there something more to Reagan’s shooting?

The official story is that John Hinckley Jr, then 25 years old, shot Reagan as the President walked to his limousine after delivering a speech at a Washington, D.C. hotel. Hinckley fired several shots, one of them ricocheting off the limousine and hitting Reagan in the chest. Reagan was wounded but made a quick recovery, with the would-be-killer sent to an institution for the criminally insane.

Hinckley claimed he attempted to kill the President to get the attention of actress Jodie Foster, who Hinckley was obsessed with.

But some have suggested Hinckley could have been a mind-controlled fall guy for the CIA. The Agency, conspiracy theorists suggest, wanted their former boss—and Reagan’s own Vice-President—George Herbert Walker Bush, father of the current President, George W. Bush—in the White House instead of the “The Gipper,” as Reagan was fondly known to many.

George Bush worked in an official capacity for the CIA as its Director in 1976-77, but Bush’s association with the Agency stretches back long before that time.

Bush, like his son, was and is a member of the ultra-secretive Skull and Bones Society of Yale. What is known about this Society is that its initiation rituals for new members involve lying naked in a coffin and providing fellow members information they could use for blackmail against them, ensuring their loyalty to the creepy but powerful club. It is also known that Skull and Bones tends to be a place where the equally-creepy CIA recruits many of its high-ranking members.

There is evidence to suggest Bush worked for the CIA as early as 1961. Bush, then a wealthy Texas oilman in his late 30s, visited oil rigs around the world. Was this the perfect cover for a CIA spy? Bush’s oil company was named Zapata—also the codename for the CIA’s ill-fated Bay of Pigs invasion of Castro’s Cuba in 1961. Two of the U.S. Navy ships that were repainted to look like civilian ships for the invasion were named “Barbara” and “Houston,” the name of Bush’s wife and adopted hometown.

The U.S. government released 100,000 pages of old documents related to the President John F. Kennedy assassination in 1978. A memo in that mountain of information was sent by the State Department to “George Bush of the Central Intelligence Agency.” The memo wrote of the possibility of another attempted invasion of Cuba following JFK’s death in 1963. Conspiracy buffs point to this as another link in the chain of Bush’s involvement with the CIA long before he was officially the Agency’s Director.

“Must have been another George Bush,” a Bush presidential campaign team member lamely replied when questioned about this in 1980.

There was indeed a George William Bush who worked for the CIA, but only for a few months as a low-ranking office worker in 1964. When tracked down by an investigative journalist about the memo, the former Agency employee replied he was never consulted in any way by the State Department , the FBI or any other government body regarding an invasion of Cuba. “You must mean President Bush,” he said.

George de Mohrenschildt, a Russian-born wealthy Texas oilman who had links to alleged JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald, was called to appear before the House Select Committee on Assassinations in 1978 regarding the JFK killing and his ties to Oswald.

The oilman never made it.

He was found dead after an apparent suicide (?), and in his personal address book investigators found the name “Bush, George H. W. 1412 W. Ohio also Zapata Petroleum Midland.”

To return to the Reagan shooting, could it be that the CIA, with whom George Bush may have had a close association long before becoming its Director, wanted their man—Vice-President George Bush-- in the White House instead of Reagan and used the pathetic Hinckley to do the job? The CIA, conspiracy theorists claim, played a part in the assassination of Kennedy and the removal of Nixon from the White House, so why not try it again?

Consider this.

John Hinckley had flown from Nebraska to Nashville in October 1980 with plans to assassinate President Jimmy Carter, but Nashville airport officials detained him when it was found he had three guns in his luggage. Amazingly, he was released with a fine after a mere five hours in detention, in a city where President Carter was expected. Hinckley also had links with the American Nazi Party and the Islamic Guerilla Army. A member of the latter group apparently warned the Secret Service of Hinckley’s plan to shoot Reagan two months before the shooting, but did nothing about it.

Even more amazingly, the Bush and Hinckley families were old friends. Both families had made a fortune in the Texas oil industry. Bush’s son Neil even had plans to meet with Hinckley’s brother Scott the same evening Reagan was shot.

Was the CIA indeed behind the Reagan shooting?

If so, did George Bush know about it?

Or was the shooting the actions of one violent, mentally-ill young man, who was willing to do anything to get Jodie Foster’s attention?
Ironically, if any ‘good’ came out of the shooting, it was for Jodie Foster.

The unwanted publicity she received as a result of Hinckley’s actions doubtlessly helped her career, and on March 30, 1991, ten years to the day after the Reagan shooting, Foster won the Academy Award for Best Actress for her role as a government agent in “The Silence Of The Lambs.”

Senator John Kerry is also a member of Skull and Bones! I have no doubt he's being blackmailed.

206173 The Bush Crime Family....
Pure Evil....

Posted: Apr 18 2009, 8:04 PM

206173 Bush & MKULTRA Satanic killer who Bush pardoned while Governor, BOTH in same cult in '80s

Bush covers up likely MKULTRA issues. Plus, Bush himself has been associated with mass murder Satan cult rings at Brownsville, Texas. And this connects him to the very person he "pardoned" while governor of Texas--Henry Lee Lucas, for ritualized killings and cannibalism. They both were associated with Brownsville, TX, cults.

Bush's Wild Years: in the 1980s, Bush and serial killer Henry Lee Lucas in TX Satan cult, George W. Bush investigated for six months for mass murder of 17 people who were skinned in the cult--until VP Poppy Bush told then to drop the case.

"Bush, telling reporters and critics to 'stick to the issues that matter', Republican presidential candidate George W. Bush declined to answer questions Monday concerning his alleged involvement in a 1984 Brownsville, TX, mass murder, in which 17 people were ritualistically murdered and skinned. 'I will not stoop to discussing that,' said Bush....

Bush, the son of a billioniare, was strangely living in the most impoverished place in America, Brownsville. Bush was living nearby to and also inside the headquarters of a Satanic Cult of which he was a member. Bush disappeared for three days during which ALL of the other of his fellow Cult Members were slaughtered. After he reappeared he could not explain where he had been.

***The local prosecutor continued to pursue Bush, sole Cult survivor, on mass murder charges for six months thereafter, heavily pressured by Daddy Bush to stop the investigation.***

[Loads of details of the Bush Crime Family are in the extensive website series, "The Overthrow of the American Republic", with two linked sites.]

IS GEORGE W. BUSH's current opponent for President, JOHN F. KERRY different than Bush?

Both are satanic cultists, members of Skull & Bastards Society.

Knowledgeable sources contend that concealed, in part, by Kerry's divorce from his first wife and his silence about his episodes in England, are some horrors equal to the foregoing.

With the help of entertainers, Kerry in London, England, reportedly engaged in sexual perversions with 13 year old girls and even with those much younger; with Kerry somehow complicit in porno snuff rituals. That is, where after the weirdo event, the victim, whether three years old or thirteen, becomes a human sacrifice, and is killed on camera. This type of thing originally was a specialty from Argentina. Will the newsfakers ever ask Kerry to explain?

75109 you DO realize that was Jodie Foster's SECOND Oscar for Best Actress, right? She already had won Best Actress in 1989 for "The Accused" before her "The Silence of the Lambs" Oscar.

7518 Let me play Devil's Advocate here. George Bush was in the CIA, and most likely had connections. Ronald Reagan was not. Now, Reagan was also extremely controversial when it came to the economic reforms he would create. Was he right? Was he wrong? I don't want to get into a debate.

But what I will say is that even if many in the CIA were "conservative" (btw: I hate the terms "liberal" and "conservative" as they're used) some may have felt that Reagan was a bit too far-right in his economics and, as he proved when he legally became president, Bush was more moderate at-least on that issue.

Also, yeah: they'd want Bush, a former CIA guy, in the White House. Well, some of them. I guess.

Therefore, I think it's possible that some in the CIA--even if it was just a small band of members acting on their own accord--could have coordinated this event. We'll assume that for now. The question is, was Bush in on it? Did he plan it?

There just isn't much evidence to back that up. Bush was in some guy's address book who was going to give some testimony about his connection to the Kennedy assassination. Was he the only person in the book? I really, REALLY doubt it.

Let's assume the opposite: what if George Bush learned about the assassination attempt and made it clear, in no uncertain terms, that he would not allow them to continue. Think about it: if Reagan dies in 1982, George Bush becomes president until 1984 and MAYBE wins reelection and stays in the White House until 1988. If Ronald Reagan is elected to a certain term (as he was), George Bush could then ride his coat tails to the 1988 election cycle and handily defeat his opponent WITHOUT Ronald Reagan's blood on his hands. Of course, he wasn't able to win reelection in 1992. And as for a possible successor, I don't think Dan Quayle seems like CIA material (though that's just it: he doesn't) but whatever.

The point is: if there was a conspiracy, Bush may have known about it, but who's to say he approved of it and didn't put a lid on any future attempts on Reagan's life?

223204 stupid nonfactual nonsense about Bush

Posted: Jun 20 2015, 7:14 PM

73168 I remember reading in more than one source (but I cannot remember the sources) that Hinkley Sr. had an oil company and that a son of his (not John Jr) was hauled into the CIA or FBI offices and told that a government investigation of his father's company uncovered criminal behavior and that there would be a million dollar fine and criminal proceedings. This was supposedly weeks before the attempt on Reagan. I am not sure if the Son was the same son (Scott) that Neal Bush was having to dinner. Also, Both Neal and his wife separately said that the Hinkley family had been big GWHBush supporters and had donated a lot of money for his campaigns. The very next day the Bush machine came back and said that there was no record of any contribution to any Bush Campains from the Hinkley family. Very Strange.

Also, prior to the attempt on Reagan, he already gave much international powers to Bush. He took them away from Haig. There was a presidential memo about it. After the attempt, Regan had no desire to be involved in foreign relations, and Bush was pretty much in control of the country.

One really amazing story said that Bush was in Texas (where he has been every time there was an attempt on a president's life) and when he returned to Washington and his cabinet, he declared "There is no conspiracy" and this was apparently all that was needed to prevent ANY agency from investigating this attempt. Must be nice to have that kind of power. Remember "he who benefits from a crime is most likely involved in it".

205197 I don't think it's impossible, but it has a lot of problems that push the focus of the whole article away. First, think about the fact that more than one family can have the same name. I once knew a family, the Andersons. Later, I met a different family but the same name. Bush oilfield problem: Solved!
