Just as the Democrat Party was in the final stages of nominating Hillary Clinton for the US Presidency, liberal mainstream media types are celebrating the fact that the glass ceiling is finally being shattered in yet another US first!
Indeed, Mrs. Clinton is the first known, practicing criminal to be the standard bearer for either party!
She is also a woman. which apparently is more important than her incompetence and wretched criminal history.
To highlight this special, historic event, attorneys loyal to Clinton and progressive principles in general, arranged for John Hinckley, the man who tried to assassinate President Ronald Reagan in 1981, to be released from a government mental hospital where the would-be-killer has been detained for the past 35 years.
John W. Hinckley Jr., who tried to assassinate PresidentRonald Reagan in 1981, will be allowed to live permanently with his elderly mother in Williamsburg, Va., leaving the psychiatric hospital where he has been imprisoned for several decades, a federal judge ruled on Wednesday.
Judge Paul L. Friedman of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia wrote in his opinion that Mr. Hinckley, 61, no longer posed a danger to himself or others. The release should begin no sooner than Aug. 5, the judge said.
Although Mr. Hinckley has been living part time in Williamsburg for years, family and friends of Reagan’s said they were outraged that he would be allowed to reside there permanently.
It is worth noting that Hinckley may be eligible to have his voting rights restored by Virgina Governor Terry McAuliffe who has a world-class talent for turning convicted felons into Hillary Clinton voters. Although McAuliffe’s attempt to restore voting rights for 200,000 felons with a single Executive Order was ruled unconstitutional, the determined Democrat continues to add convicted felons to the Democrat voting block on an individual basis.
John Hinckley would appear a perfect candidate for the McAuliffe scheme, given the fact that Hinckley did his damned best to end the Reagan revolution before it really got started!
