  • (Vanity) Hypothetical: Would JFK Jr. have beaten Hillary in NY Senate race?

    If the answer is yes, it raises another question... is it such as "stretch" to conclude the Clinton's might have been involved in a conspiracy to take JFK Jr. out, to pave the way for Hillary's eventual NY Senate run and later POTUS runs... Adding perhaps the most important name to the long list in the "Clinton dead pool." I now put nothing past these evil Clinton's, to win political office at all costs!
  • JFK Jr. Would Have Run for President, Says Jackie's Personal Assistant

    Lost potential is a common theme of Kennedy-family lore. It's hard not to imagine what Bobby, President Kennedy, and JFK Jr. might have accomplished, had they not died so young. John Jr. would be making a run for the White House right now, if he were still alive. At least, that's what Jackie Kennedy's former personal assistant thinks. "If her brother wasn’t gone, he’d probably be running for president," Kathy McKeon said in a new, wide-ranging profile of Caroline Kennedy in Avenue magazine. "When Caroline was growing up, she always said she wanted to be a wife and mother, and...

    John F. Kennedy Jr., 20 years ago, predicted the rise of Donald Trump as a presidential candidate. Michael Berman, onetime partner of Kennedy on the launch of George, the political-pop culture magazine, recalled the prescient comments last week in remarks to note a six-figure donation he and his wife, interior designer Victoria Hagan, recently made to Elon University’s School of Communications. In 1996, Berman said, Kennedy flew a select group of advertisers to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate after an industry conference in Florida.

    ♦ After years of reluctance, in a July 1998 interview with the A&E network John F Kennedy Jr. said he was finally considering an entry into politics. He was 38 years old. ♦ Four months later, in November of 1998, New York Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan announced he would be retiring at the end of his senate term (election year 2000). ♦ Seven months later, on July 16th 1999, JFK Jr. was killed in a nighttime plane crash during a flight to Martha’s Vineyard. ♦ Two months later, September 1999, Hillary Rodham Clinton moved to a residence in Chappaqua New...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Okay. Here's why you didn't know about Hillary Clinton back in 2008, 'cause it comes from an interview that she did with the Sioux Falls Argus Leader editorial board. She did an interview with the editors of that newspaper, and they had tape running, and this is what she said. This is May 23rd of 2008. HILLARY: Between my opponent and some in the media, uhhh, there has been this urgency to end this. You know, my husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of...

    Why Did Kennedy Crash? In the last few minutes before Kennedy's little single-engine airplane went into the heavy seas off Martha's Vineyard, its radar track showed all the evidence of a mind wobbling in the tortured confusion called vertigo. This confusion steered Kennedy down a horrifying spiral to his death on that hot and hazy night in July. If you've ever felt the searing pain of belly-flopping off a diving board, you might rightly suspect that hitting the water at high speed is an impact not much different from colliding with a granite cliff. The kind of bafflement and panic...

    National Review ^ | 9-22-14 | Charles C. W. Cooke
    Blissfully unaware of how hot the irony burned, Robert Kennedy Jr. yesterday took to a public protest to rail avidly in favor of censorship. The United States government, Kennedy lamented in an interview with Climate Depot, is not permitted by law to “punish” or to imprison those who disagree with him — and this, he proposed, is a problem of existential proportions. Were he to have his way, Kennedy admitted, he would cheer the prosecution of a host of “treasonous” figures — among them a number of unspecified “politicians”; those bêtes noires of the global Left, Kansas’s own Koch Brothers;...

    This Sunday, former CNN war correspondent and television host Christiane Amanpour will take over as host of ABC’s venerable public affairs show “This Week.” Her selection for the post, however, has caused a surprisingly potent backlash . . . The most bitter of these critiques was occasioned by Amanpour’s 2007 documentary series God’s Warriors. The series examined religious extremism in three parts — on Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, respectively. Many Jews and other supporters of Israel were outraged both by the format of the documentary, which equated Judaism and Christianity with radical Islam . . . Pugnacious conservative writer Michelle...
  • JFK Jr.'s Assistant Remembers Camelot's Prince

    From the time he was a child, John F. Kennedy Jr. captured America's attention. The country watched the prince of Camelot grow from young boy to idealistic lawyer and then a loving husband. Though he was under the constant heat of the spotlight, Kennedy always fought for normalcy in his life. Few people knew the junior Kennedy better than Rose Marie Terenzio, his personal assistant and confidant. Their friendship blossomed through a chance encounter. Kennedy was starting George magazine and renting office space in Manhattan. The political magazine shared the same floor as the public relations company where Terenzio worked....

    High up in the clouds, John F. Kennedy Jr. discovered a serenity and peace that often eluded him on the ground. "The sunset is so beautiful," he radioed his flight instructor on his first solo flight in 1996. "Can I go around one more time?" Permission was granted. And for the next three years, Kennedy escaped the burden of being the son of a beloved slain President, the burden of being a sex symbol hounded by paparazzi, by soaring above it all. But tragedy is the Kennedy family curse. In retrospect, it no longer shocks or surprises that the thing...

    There are moments in time which can change the world, moments when the course of history has been altered in ways we cannot fathom. Some moments, such as 9/11, are impossible to miss, their impact immediate. Other world-changing moments only become obvious years later through the wisdom of hindsight, as historians and others ask the ago-old question, "What if...?". As Election 2008 winds down to what seems to be an Obama-vs-McCain election preceded by a contentious Democratic convention, I suddenly came to a realization this week, a realization that everything in this election cycle changed on one fateful day years...

The fateful flight that should have carried him, his wife, Carolyn, and her sister, Lauren Bessette, to a family wedding was doomed from the get-go by a late start, rapidly deterio rating weather conditions and disastrous decisions by a novice pilot, accord ing to Kennedy biogra pher C. David Heymann. Heymann's book, "American Legacy: The Story of John and Caro line Kennedy," out June 26 from Atria Books, draws on new...

    BOSTON (AP) -- Almost eight years after John F. Kennedy Jr. died in a plane crash off the coast of Martha's Vineyard, federal officials released a brief audio clip Tuesday of a conversation between a concerned airport intern and a Federal Aviation Administration dispatcher related to the fatal flight. A transcript of the conversation between Adam Budd, a 21-year-old college student employed at the Martha's Vineyard Airport, and the call center at the FAA's Automated Flight Service Station in Bridgeport, Conn., already was made public and widely reported four days after the July 16, 1999, crash. The audio released on...

    by Mark Finkelstein August 21, 2006 - 08:17 This week is shaping up as the MSM's kick-off of its Hillary for President campaign. Using Time Magazine's 10th cover of Hillary as a springboard, this morning's Today show convened a liberal coffee klatsch on Clinton's political future. Dem pollster Peter Hart summed up the segment's zeitgest nicely: "I think Americans are ready for a female president. I think they are definitely ready for Hillary Clinton." Not a discouraging word was to be heard, as 'Today' found it unnecessary to invite to the party anyone who might have a negative view of...

    2008 presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton said Monday that she's horrified over allegations that U.S. Marines executed innocent Iraqis in the town of Haditha last November after their convoy was hit by a roadside bomb - and she's vowing to expose any cover-up by Marine brass. "This is the kind of horrific allegation that has to be investigated, and we're going to start in the Senate doing just that," she told the New York Daily News, after marching in Chappaqua's Memorial Day parade. The comments by Clinton, who sits on the Senate Armed Services Committee, seemed to contradict remarks by committee...

    By R.F. Kennedy, Jr. AS an environmentalist, I support wind power, including wind power on the high seas. I am also involved in siting wind farms in appropriate landscapes, of which there are many. But I do believe that some places should be off limits to any sort of industrial development. I wouldn't build a wind farm in Yosemite National Park. Nor would I build one on Nantucket Sound, which is exactly what the company Energy Management is trying to do with its Cape Wind project. Environmental groups have been enticed by Cape Wind, but they should be wary of...

Whereas Edward Klein's book on the New York senator reveals previously unknown aspects of her personal life, Poe's expose focuses on how Hillary Clinton and the left's "shadow government" have labored to put her and her far-left agenda in the White House by controlling the still-uncensored flow of real news to Americans – via the Internet.If that sounds too fantastic to be true, read on.
