  • (Howie) Carr: Kennedy's original serial harassers (compares the perverts to Weinstein)

    Have you noticed that there’s been a word missing from all these recent stories about sexual harassment in Massachusetts politics? The missing word is "Kennedy." Talk about ignoring the elephant, or should I say donkey, in the room. There has never been a family in Massachusetts (or American) politics that's come close to the sordid record of misogyny of the Kennedys. [Snip] Chappaquiddick, anyone? Joe Kennedy II crippling a young woman on Nantucket and later his first wife accusing him of bullying her ... the list of abominable Kennedy behavior around women is practically endless. From Toodles Ryan to...

    The more we learn about the Holocaust, even as it recedes into the “mists of time,” the more my blood boils, the closer I come to tears. Last night, I traveled far out into Syrian-Jewish Brooklyn, where there are not only Syrian shuls but Egyptian, Lebanese, and Iraqi shuls as well—sometimes two or three on a single block. […] Retired lawyer and filmmaker Robert Krakow was screening his film Complicit, which is about America’s and FDR’s refusal, in 1939, to allow the Jewish passengers on the German ship, the MS St. Louis, to enter the country. More than 900 Jews...

    For more than half a century, the Kennedys were a force in U.S. politics. Their dominance began with John F. Kennedy’s 1960 presidential run and lasted until the death of Senator Edward M. Kennedy in 2009. The family’s return as a major political presence is not imminent, but it may not be that far off. A candidate for a Massachusetts seat in the U.S. House of Representatives is Joseph P. Kennedy III, a grandson of Robert F. Kennedy and a grandnephew of the president and the senator. He is running in a congressional district now largely represented by Representative Barney...

    Joseph P. Kennedy III, the grandson of Robert F. Kennedy said Sunday he will not run for Congress, according to the Associated Press. The Boston Globe reported Saturday that the 29-year-old Kennedy was weighing a bid should Rep. William Delahunt (D-Mass.) retire. Kennedy's announcement likely means that the retirement of Rep. Patrick Kennedy (D-R.I.) will mark the first time that Congress will be without one of the clan since 1962, when the late Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) was first elected. Here is more from the AP: Kennedy told The Associated Press that he wants to remain in his new job...

    Kennedy Regrets Not Running For Senate Seat By Thomas Grillo January 28, 2010 Joseph P. Kennedy II said today he regrets not seeking the U.S. Senate seat vacated by his uncle, but the former congressman has no plans to run against U.S. Sen.-elect Scott Brown in 2012. Kennedy, who was in Brighton today delivering heating oil for his nonprofit Citizens Energy, was asked whether Brown’s victory made him regret his decision not to run to succeed his uncle, the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. “The thought has crossed my mind,” Kennedy said with a chuckle yesterday. “Maybe that wasn’t the...

    Predictably, the push has begun to get a Kennedy into the Senate seat held for lo those many years by Ted Kennedy. The Kennedys favorite newspaper - the Boston Globe - all but annointed Joe in a news story by Frank Phillips that also handily reminded everybody that the seat is, after all, the permanent property of the Kennedy family. Said Philips: [Snip] "All eyes now are on Joseph P. Kennedy II, the former US representative, with family members and political allies expecting him to make a decision very shortly on whether to enter the Democratic primary. "No other Kennedy...

    BOSTON — Citgo has suspended its free heating oil program for low-income residents, Citizens Energy Chairman Joseph Kennedy announced Monday. Kennedy said the Venezuelan government's Texas-based oil subsidiary cited falling oil prices and the world economic crisis for forcing the company to reevaluate all of its social programs. Kennedy urged those who have been helped by the program to write Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez to share their stories.
  • Savvy vs Incompetence: Munich Pact vs Bill Ayers [JFK vs Obama]

    Various - (Life of JFK, Obama, Neville Chamberlain, Joseph P. Kennedy, etc)
    Probably one of the great things that John F. Kennedy did just after college was to oppose his own father on the Munich Pact [the appeasement of Adolf Hitler]. Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain and US Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy, Sr., went on record in favor of the appeasement of Hitler. John Kennedy went on to write the book Why England Slept (or perhaps it was ghost written for him). Perhaps because he clashed with his father over this issue and felt his father was wrong, John went on to write the book. [His own father encouraged him to do exactly...

    "Water, water every where, And all the boards did shrink; Water, water every where, Nor a drop to drink." --Samuel Taylor Coleridge, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner ----------------------------------------------------- Iran isn’t an energy-independent country. I’m well aware that Iran produces more than 4 million barrels of oil per day, the fourth-highest production in the world. And with the near-constant reporting about Iranian crude reserves during the past six months, I find it difficult to believe that anyone could be unaware that Iran has 132 billion barrels in proven reserves--or, at least, they claim to. But what’s often ignored is that...
  • Book: Bush aides called evangelicals 'nuts,' 'goofy'

    David Kuo WASHINGTON – Top White House political advisers embraced evangelical supporters publicly to get their votes while mocking them privately as "nuts" and "goofy," according to a new book by David Kuo, the former No. 2 man in President Bush's so-called "faith-based" initiatives program. In "Tempting Faith: An Inside Story of Political Seduction," Kuo also says it's time for conservative Christians to take a time out from politics and to re-evaluate their priorities. The book hits stores today. Kuo quit the White House in 2003. Now he accuses Karl Rove's political staff of cynically hijacking the faith-based initiatives...

    The Kerry-Kennedy-Haiti Connection By Cliff Kincaid March 26, 2004 It wasn't a big story when John Kerry said that he would have risked U.S. lives to maintain Marxist Jean-Bertrand Aristide in power in Haiti. And except for columnist Robert Novak, there hasn't been any discussion of why Kerry chose such a controversial course of action. Novak noted evidence of "Aristide's gold-plated U.S. connections." He explained, "He is close to Kerry's influential friends, the Kennedy family of Massachusetts, and is the unconditional favorite of the Congressional Black Caucus." Novak noted that Aristide spent millions on U.S. lobbyists and lawyers, and that,...
