Ronald Reagan’s Blood Up For Auction

A vial of Ronald Reagan’s blood is up for auction.

An auction in the United Kingdom has some Ronald Reagan supporters’ blood boiling. Supposedly, a vial of the former President’s blood is up for auction.

According to Reuters, the vial came from the seller’s mother, who worked at a blood-work facility. The blood sample was obtained at the George Washington University Hospital after the attempted assassination of Reagan in 1981.

The seller claims to have been given the go-ahead by government officials. But some people are calling the auction inappropriate.

“If indeed this story is true, it’s a craven act and we will use every legal means to stop its sale or purchase,” said John Heubusch, executive director of the Ronald Reagan Presidential Foundation. “Any individual, including a President of the United States, should feel confident that once they enter into the care of a medical system their privacy and rights are held inviolable.”

The auction ends Thursday.

    “a vial of the former President’s blood is up for auction.”

    Selling it is bad. But, can you imagine the sicko who will buy it? Either they get some sort of kick out of owning it or they are going to look for a bigger sucker to sell it to.

    Why does something that pretty much has zero value onto itself (baseball cards and old telephone pole insulators, for example) attract so much attention?

      BTW, I call such a person an “Entramanure”

    If this blood sample could be used to create a cloned carbon copy of the original,it would be very valuable indeed. A new Ronald Reagan would put the communist back into the closet, especially if he were to command an army of cloned Joseph McCarthy’s.

      Just what I was thinking!

  • Norm

    Totally disgusting.
    As far as cloning, one would need to remove the Alzheimers part of the DNA if it is indeed genetic

  • Red Sam Rackham

    Wow! If this is true then perhaps the Gipper can be cloned.
    “Clone Ronnie” could then grow up to go to Hollywood and
    make some great movies and then
    perhaps someday be a great president.

    Is this an exception to the free market system?

    • Vigilant

      No, it’s the sign of things to come under Obamacare. Hacked medical records and such things as this will become commonplace, unless the SCOTUS does its duty and strikes it down.

    In between trading arms-for-hostages and arms-for-drugs, Ronald Reagan lay flowers at the graves of Nazi SS officers, ridiculously claiming that the SS officers were, quote, “victims, just as surely as the victims in the concentration camps” (!!!)

    That vial of the deficit tripler’s blood is the only bit of Reagan that didn’t make it to Hell, where he now roasts next to John Wayne Gacy, Stalin, Hitler, and Ted Bundy.

    • Vigilant

      “Ronald Reagan lay flowers at the graves of Nazi SS officers, ridiculously claiming that the SS officers were, quote, “victims, just as surely as the victims in the concentration camps”

      Absolute lie. Reagan’s statement was “These [SS troops] were the villains, as we know, that conducted the persecutions and all. But there are 2,000 graves there, and most of those, the average age is about 18. I think that there’s nothing wrong with visiting that cemetery where those young men are victims of Nazism also, even though they were fighting in the German uniform, drafted into service to carry out the hateful wishes of the Nazis. They were victims, just as surely as the victims in the concentration camps”. (Wikipedia)

      (1) His statement, IF you have any reading comprehension, was applied to the young draftees. The SS were clearly characterized as “villians.”

      (2) There are 49 Waffen-SS buried at the cemetery. “Reagan spent only eight minutes at the Kolmeshöhe Cemetery. Along with Kohl, 90-year-old General Matthew Ridgway, who had commanded the 82nd Airborne in World War II, and Luftwaffe ace and former head of NATO General Johannes Steinhoff, Reagan placed a wreath at a wall of remembrance.” (Ibid,)

      Alex’s leftist lies and distortions have become so commonplace that he has no credibility whatsoever. In his obvious hatred of Reagan, he’s willing to blind himself to the truth.

      Another shill, and probably well paid for his prevarication.

        Many Thanks, Vigilant, for setting the record straight.

        Sorry Mr. Nash, but there is no way for me to determine for a fact, that the blood in the vile is the blood of former President, Ronald Reagan, or, if the liquid in the vile is actually blood, for that matter. I will most certainly refuse to take the lying media’s word for it!

        Personally, i think this is nothing more then a wild-goose-chase, for the purpose to unsettle/disturb Americans, and to show disrespect to a American Icon, Ronald Reagan!

    I would investigate that hospital to see if anything else like this have happen since then,or before( remember PRESIDENT KENNEDY?????).It’s been over thirty years since this happened,Those who are responiable for this who may yet be alive,(If indeed the vile does,contain the blood of PRESIDENT RONALD REAGAN)would be in serious trouble.I wonder what The late Great PRESIDENTS Family thinks about this?Its one hell of a sick “WORLD” we live in.
