    On Tuesday, New York magazine published an essay by a 24-year-old law student who recently paddleboarded around Manhattan for the first time. “I signed up for the race because I thought it sounded cool,” writes our participant. “Of course, when I asked around, everyone said it was really hard and I’d better start training.” The smugness, the entitlement, the painfully obvious observation — one might wonder: Who cares? Until you look at the byline and realize: Oh, of course. Another Kennedy foisted upon us. Our diarist is none other than Jack Schlossberg, grandson of JFK, son of Caroline, accomplishment-free save...

    Complete Headline: A floral flop! Caroline Kennedy models a VERY unflattering dress on the Met Gala red carpet - just hours after being hailed by Vogue as one of the 'best dressed of all time' Caroline Kennedy is known for her classic sense of style and fashionable know-how, so it came as quite a shock to see the diplomat take to the red carpet at this year's Met Gala in a highly unflattering - and rather bizarre - dress that quite closely resembled an antique lampshade. The 59-year-old, a close friend of Met Gala chair Anna Wintour, arrived at the...

    The 2020 election could put the two biggest names in the Democratic Party on a collision course. Democratic bigwigs are already rumbling about a Kennedy vs. Clinton showdown, should Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand set her sights on the White House in 2020. Both contenders would be former First Daughters: Chelsea Clinton and Caroline Kennedy.

    Democratic party supporters are already looking towards the 2020 election, hoping for a Senate "showdown" between the two former First Daughters Chelsea Clinton and Caroline Kennedy. "And we're told that it's more than just fantasy football for liberals who have nothing else to look forward to," the New York Daily News reported on Friday. Should Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.) run for president in 2020, it's rumored that both Clinton and Kennedy would vie for the vacant Senate seat.

    President Donald Trump's "America first" approach to foreign policy is "alarming," Caroline Kennedy, who recently resigned her post as U.S. ambassador to Japan, said Friday morning. "To be taken for granted, or to be insulted as an ally who has fought alongside the United States for example, with Australia, or who contributes a huge amount to American security, in the case of Japan and Korea, is alarming," Kennedy told NBC's "Today" anchor Matt Lauer in an exclusive interview. "I think that, hopefully, the president will realize the benefits of working with our friends and allies around the region." Kennedy resigned...

    Caroline Kennedy lost her Ambassador post in Japan when Trump took office. He sent her packing and hasn’t even bothered to name a replacement. But according to the New York Post, she’s not done with public service. Kennedy is planning to run for the U.S. senate in 2018. First, she’s going to be penning a memoir, but then she’ll be getting down to work. She plans to follow in the footsteps of her uncle Robert Kennedy, and run for a New York senate seat. She plans to target the seat of Democratic Senator Kristen Gillibrand. Or she could run for...

    Will this end Caroline's political aspirations once and for all? Caroline Kennedy has her eye on the White House, but a new family scandal threatens to torpedo her political career, has learned. According to new reports, a Cape Cod home owned by her family members has been exposed as the center of a massive drug ring! Barnstable police raided the stately Hyannisport home, which is used by the Shriver family (Kennedy cousins) as a summer pad, on Wednesdsay. Located near the Kennedy’s Hyannisport compound, the house was taken over by a ring of druggie lowlifes in recent months –...

    Ambassadorships to major countries and trouble spots were typically given out to professional diplomats. You might send a donor with no diplomatic experience off to play ambassador to Gambia or Cyprus, but not to France or China. Obama changed that as he changed so many things, dispatching a ridiculously incompetent donor to serve as ambassador to the UK and after failing to make Caroline Kennedy the senator from New York (after some Schumer sabotage and a New Yorker backlash), Princess Caroline had to settle for being the US ambassador to Japan where she's hard at work demonstrating the diplomatic...

    RadarOnLine ^ | 4/4/2016 | Noelani Montero has obtained a top-secret State Department briefing that rips U.S. Ambassador Kennedy’s work at the American Embassy in Japan, citing “confusion among staff” and other “major” issues! President Obama appointed Kennedy, 58, as the U.S. Ambassador to Japan in 2013. Since then, an investigation has uncovered and detailed 65 charges against the facility, which employs 727 people and has a yearly budget of almost $100 million. Most notably, the report revealed that Kennedy often runs over that budget, and that they found $2.3 million in “funds [that could be] put to better use.” There is also reported “confusion among...

    Talk in Kennedy circles is that Caroline Kennedy is furious over the revelation that a longtime confidant of Hillary Clinton’s secretly sabotaged her bid to become a US senator — and Kennedy may seek her revenge by backing veep Joe Biden if he runs for president. In June, leaked emails revealed that Hillary henchman Sidney Blumenthal had orchestrated news stories undermining Caroline while she was vying to be appointed to Hillary’s Senate seat in 2008.

    Celebrity ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy, daughter of the former president, but someone with zero experience with or knowledge of Japan, has been taken to the woodshed by the State Department's Office of Inspector General. The OIC issued a blistering report that highlighted the mismanagement and ignorance of the ambassador and her staff, including the use of private emails for official business:

    Ambassador Caroline Kennedy and senior staff at the U.S. embassy in Japan used personal email accounts for official business, an internal watchdog report said Tuesday -- making Kennedy the latest Obama administration official to run afoul of email security guidelines. The State Department’s Office of Inspector General (OIG) report said it received reports concerning the use of private email accounts for official business, and identified instances where emails labeled "sensitive but unclassified" were sent from or received by personal email accounts.

    Ambassador Caroline Kennedy was singled out by the State Department's watchdog for using a personal email account to conduct official business. Kennedy, who has served as the U.S. ambassador to Japan since 2013, "used personal email accounts to send and receive messages containing official business," according to a State Department inspector general report made public Tuesday. Other senior embassy staff also used personal email accounts to handle government communications, occasionally transmitting information marked "sensitive but unclassified" on commercial accounts ...

    This was pretty fun to watch. Trump made some swipes at Caroline Kennedy as our ambassador to Japan, saying that she was just handed the job without any qualifications. The crowd loved it: Trump: "You know who represents us to Japan? Caroline Kennedy. Howd she get job? She called the white house and said she had nothing to do."

    The Obama administration is injecting its open border agenda to the federal landmark that once served as the gateway for legal immigration with a new gallery blasting the militarization of the U.S.-Mexico border and the deportation of “unauthorized immigrants.” Located in the New York Harbor and situated near the iconic Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island and its structures are federally-owned landmarks operated by the National Park Service (NPS), which is part of the U.S. Department of the Interior. From 1892 to 1954 the island received and processed around 12 million immigrants, mostly Europeans fleeing war, religious persecution and famine. Among...

    BOSTON (AP) — Former U.S. Rep. Bob Inglis received the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award on Sunday for reversing his position on climate change despite the predictable political fallout that helped cost the South Carolina Republican his seat in Congress. Kennedy's grandson, Jack Schlossberg, presented the award to Inglis on Sunday at the JFK Library in Boston."My grandfather's legacy is kept alive by Bob's courageous decision to sacrifice his political career to demand action on the issue that will shape life on Earth for generations to come," said Schlossberg, son of Caroline Kennedy and Edwin Schlossberg.

    In an echo of 2008 — when Ted and Caroline Kennedy backed upstart Barack Obama over Hillary Rodham Clinton — members of the Kennedy clan have been quietly wooing Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren and encouraging her to throw her hat in the ring, sources tell me. The question of whom to back in the 2016 presidential race has split the Kennedys down the middle. Robert Kennedy’s widow, Ethel, and their eldest son, former US Rep. Joe Kennedy II, favor Warren — the darling of the party’s left-wing base who now sits in Ted Kennedy’s old seat — while Bobby Jr....
