    Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 10-21-2014 | MOTUS
    Don’t blame me, I’m just connecting the dots. Just 12 days ago, at the cocktail party following Lady M’s White House Fashion Education Workshop, she finally wore a frock by America’s iconic designer Oscar de la Renta, Today, Oscar is dead. Coincidence? Officially, yes, butt let’s examine the evidence: first, Oscar was never a fan of MO’s mini-me cardigans: Fashion can get ugly. It looks like the king of American fashion is openly dissing the First Lady for wearing her wallet-friendly J.Crew ensemble to meet the Queen of England this week. Oscar de la Renta remarked, “You don’t show up at...

    Driven to distraction by the amorous betrayals of her husband, Jackie Kennedy embarked on a wild fling with ballet dancer Rudolf Nureyev while she was still in the White House, according to a new tell-all book. Nureyev, who was nine years younger than the First Lady, was also once spotted with Jackie’s brother-in-law Robert F. Kennedy ‘kissing each other passionately in a phone box’, the book claims. Much has been written through the years about President Kennedy’s dalliances while in office. His mistresses were famously said to include actresses Marilyn Monroe and Angie Dickinson, mafia moll Judith Exner and a...

    Marilyn Monroe called Jackie Kennedy at the White House and confessed she was having an affair with her husband, to which the First Lady responded 'that's great... I'll move out and you'll have all the problems,' according to an explosive new book. In 'These Few Precious Days: The Final Year of Jack with Jackie,' author Christopher Andersen claims Jackie 'knew everything' about Jack's cheating and turned a blind eye, but his relationship with Marilyn 'seemed to bother her the most.' And she was right to fear the bombshell actress, because Marilyn's sights were firmly set on becoming the President's second...

    “It really annoyed Caroline when comparisons were made by the media between Michelle and Jackie. Caroline had a word for such comparisons; she called them ‘odious.’ She really got annoyed. And when she began to fall out of love with the Obamas, love was replaced by outright scorn. Now she says things about Obama like, ‘I can’t stand to hear his voice any more. He’s a liar and worse’” Ethel Kennedy, “the matriarch of the family,” similarly felt scorned, according to Klein. He tells a story of her invitation — extended to the First Family — being ignored by the...

    ...She called King a “phony” after she heard that there were FBI tapes of King with women in his hotel. Kennedy also criticized King for mocking Cardinal Richard Cushing, who celebrated mass during her husband’s funeral at St. Mathews Cathedral. ”He made fun of Cardinal Cushing and said that he was drunk at it,” she said. “And things about they almost dropped the coffin. I just can’t see a picture of Martin Luther King without thinking, you know, that man’s terrible.” Rev. Walter Fauntroy, the former D.C. Delegate to Congress, was King’s White House liaison to Kennedy and he later...

    The truth is out. The leading lady of liberal America between 1960 and her death in 1994, the standard setter of au courant women with her pillbox hats, bouffant hairstyle, and jet-set friends, the Guinevere to Camelot’s King Arthur himself, didn’t much care for lesbians and Martin Luther King and other leftist world leaders. The tapes of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (shown as a young First Lady, left) are out, as The New American reported, and their first installment weeks ago revealed that she thought Vice President Lyndon Johnson, the most prodigious and successful election thief in American history, had a...

    Jackie Kennedy is back, but the world she knew as first lady is gone forever. The woman Mamie Eisenhower said looked "younger than Barbie," the fashion icon who didn't want to wear hats but capitulated at Jack's inauguration with a chic pillbox worn on the back of her head so it wouldn't ruin her bouffant hairdo, the widow who described her husband's administration as Camelot, a romantic notion as fanciful as the legend from which it was based, speaks again through a gossamer haze of pre-feminist politics. The seven-part interview the former first lady gave to historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr.,...

    She was the First Lady whose elegance defined a golden age for America. But while Jackie Kennedy might have awed world leaders with her White House dinners, we now know she could stick the knife in. She described India’s future leader Indira Gandhi as a ‘pushy, horrible... bitter prune’, French president Charles de Gaulle as a ‘spiteful egomaniac’ and civil rights leader Martin Luther King as a ‘terrible’ man and a ‘phoney’, who took part in sex parties. As for U.S. Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson, don’t get her started. She described him as bitter, hard-drinking and uninspired. The former...

    Jackie Kennedy's half-brother, who has long lived a quiet existence in a sleepy Oregon suburb, was busted for harboring a sickening kiddie-porn habit, authorities said yesterday. James Auchincloss, 62, whose mother, Janet Bouvier, was also mom to Jackie O, saw his Ashland home searched after local detectives were tipped off. The search turned up booklets and slides of naked 7- to 16-year-old boys in sex poses -- some taken at Auchincloss' home -- according to a police affidavit for a warrant. Investigators believe Auchincloss may have committed felonies by "encouraging child sexual abuse," according to the Ashland Daily Tidings newspaper.

    Former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy advised her sister-in-law, Joan, to stop being a doormat for her philandering hubby, Ted Kennedy - and if he didn’t shape up, to move out, according to letters up for auction tomorrow in Connecticut. “This is the 20th century - not the 19th - where the little woman stayed home on a pedestal with the kids and her rosary,” Jackie wrote in an undated four-page note to the senator’s wife and miserable mother of three. “Your life matters - as much as him - you love him - but you can’t destroy yourself.” The hand-written...

    Jackie Kennedy knew about her husband's extra-marital hanky-panky and even considered having affairs of her own, according to a new book, but felt that life without JFK would have been ``a wasteland.'' ``She wanted me to know she was not naive or dumb, as people in the White House thought,'' said Dr. Frank Finnerty, who treated Jackie for an injured foot and later became the first lady's confidante. ``She said the Secret Service was covering up for her husband.'' Jackie reeled off the names of JFK's various women - none of whom Finnerty recognized, with the exception of Marilyn Monroe...

    While watching President and Mrs. Bush shaking hands with the Queen outside the Palace and then waving to the cameras, I was struck with the vision of Jackie Kennedy-ish style of Mrs. Bush. Very self confident and yet still one that knows just how to conduct herself in the presence of world leaders. She makes the former occupier of that post look like a pole-dancer. 4 MORE YEARS

    His promise still grips us By Wes Smith Orlando Sentinel November 16, 2003 For all of historian Robert Dallek's reporting on John F. Kennedy's wretched health, sexual shenanigans and political skulduggery, what shocks people more is this: "When I mention that last May 29th Kennedy would have been 86 years old, they just can't believe it," noted the author of "An Unfinished Life, John F. Kennedy 1917-1963." Advertisement Dallek attributes that incredulous reaction to the fact that Kennedy, who was 46 years old when he died of an assassin's bullet in Dallas Nov. 22, 1963, has remained frozen in time...

    Grief-stricken Jackie 'contemplated suicide' as way of rejoining JFK after assassination By Rupert Cornwell in Washington 14 November 2003 The former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy was so consumed with grief at the loss of her husband that she contemplated suicide as a means of rejoining him, according to a Catholic priest in whom she confided after President John F Kennedy was assassinated. This poignant new glimpse of Mrs Kennedy emerges from excerpts of the diaries of Richard McSorley, a Jesuit priest and professor of theology at Georgetown University, which have just been made public, shortly before the 40th anniversary of...

    She was 34 years old when she buried her presidential husband. And while the rest of the world may have wept, Jacqueline Kennedy remained the epitome of poise and courage. At least that was her public face. Today, in letters released at Georgetown University, it was clear that, privately, the young widow was battling fear, reports CBS News Correspondent Jim Stewart. On July 15, 1964, nearly eight months after John F. Kennedy died, she wrote to a priest at Georgetown: "I am trying to make all the efforts you said I should make. It doesn't get a bit easier. If...

    Jacqueline Kennedy was so racked with loss after her husband's assassination in 1963 that she spoke repeatedly of suicide to her confessor, a new book about the Kennedys' Irish-Catholic heritage reveals. "It is so hard to bear," she told the Rev. Richard McSorley months after her husband's death. "I feel as though I am going out of my mind at times. Wouldn't God understand if I just wanted to be with him?" Later, after she seemed to rebound, she sank further into gloom and again spoke of suicide as a way out, saying, "I was glad that Marilyn Monroe got...

    They say a woman always knows - and Jacqueline Kennedy was no exception. The queen of Camelot was heart-wrenchingly aware of the sexual affairs President John Kennedy engaged in during his years in the White House, a new book reveals. In "An Unfinished Life: John F. Kennedy, 1917-1963," author Robert Dallek details how the President tried to satisfy a voracious appetite for sex by bedding a string of party girls and staffers. In "An Unfinished Life: John F.
