There is no connection between John Hinckley, Jr. and the Hinckley Institute but that’s not the point

Someone decided it was a good idea for Mitt Romney to attempt an assassination of Donald Trump’s character by launching verbal assaults on the Republican front runner. Who was it? On its face, to say it was ill-advised would be an understatement. Perhaps the bigger question is: Who made the decision as to where Romney would do it? The failed 2012 Republican presidential candidate fired verbal shots at the 2016 front runner that clearly missed their intended target and instead blew holes in his own credibility.

Romney shot his mouth off from behind a podium at an institute that shares the last name of the man who attempted the literal assassination of the 40th president of the United States. This is not to say there is a connection between John Hinckley, Jr. and the Hinckley Institute; there isn’t but that’s not the point. Someone decided to have Romney – a prominent face of the Republican establishment – speak there for the purpose of attempting a political assassination.

As you watch Romney verbally assault Trump’s character – something he refused to do to Obama and lost the election as a result – take note of the printed Hinckley Institute backdrop behind him:

The issue is not whether the visual messaging was intentional. It was enough to sow doubt in the mind of Trump regardless of intent; that’s what makes the backdrop insensitive. The Hinckley Institute is an establishment entity if there ever was one. Billed as “non-partisan” on its website, the Hinckley Institute’s mission states, in part:

…dedicated to teaching students respect for practical politics and the principle of citizen involvement in government.

It’s obvious that the establishment has no respect for Trump’s impractical politics. Romney’s speech was clearly the public manifestation of the establishment’s hatred for Trump and horror at the prospect of a Trump presidency. Reagan was also despised by the establishment. The name “Hinckley” in the context of establishment and anti-establishment politicians is a charged word indeed.

In a shocking moment during an appearance on the O’Reilly Factor, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich explained that the reason the establishment despises Trump is that the real estate mogul “…hasn’t been through the initiation rights. He didn’t belong to the secret society.”

One such “secret society” is Skull and Bones. Reagan’s vice president George H.W. Bush and then future president George W. Bush are said to be members. The secrets of such a secret society are allegedly so dark and diabolical that a Hillary Clinton presidency would be preferable to its members than would a Trump presidency.

Former U.S. congressman from Colorado Tom Tancredo – who has endorsed Ted Cruz – took umbrage at how the establishment attacked Trump and put it this way:

One of the cardinal rules is, thou shalt not insult millions of Republican voters by implicitly endorsing Hillary Clinton as preferable to the Republican candidate who has followed the rules and won ten of the fifteen primaries.

This is Romney’s real message, and everyone who echoes him understands it: Better to lose the 2016 election to Hillary Clinton than put Trump in the White House.


Fiercely close Bush ally Karl Rove is featured prominently on the Hinckley Institute’s website and is quoted on the home page, thanking the Institute for helping him get his “first paid job in politics”.

During the Romney presidential campaign of 2012, Rove was caught joking to wealthy donors that anti-establishment Republican Todd Akin could be assassinated. Said Rove:

“We should sink Todd Akin. If he’s found mysteriously murdered, don’t look for my whereabouts!”

The name “Hinkley” is uncommon enough but when you insert the letter “c” into it, it is 100% more rare. In fact, the spelling of that surname is identified as being held by 1 in 100,000 families in the U.S. and its popularity rank is 8192

Again, this is not a conspiracy theory. It is about a message sent to Donald Trump whether intentional or not.
