    As gas prices continue to soar around the country, Joe Kennedy III, the Democratic candidate for Rep. Barney Frank’s seat, wrote an online letter to supporters calling for an end to “cheap oil.” “Nixon, Ford, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama — they’ve all talked about the same thing: the need to wean ourselves off our debilitating dependence on foreign oil,” Kennedy wrote. “The cycle that allows cheap oil to trump tough choices has to stop,” he continued. “Forty years is enough.”
  • An Anniversary of Heroism and Shame: The Bay of Pigs (This day on April 17, 1961)

    "They fought like tigers," writes the CIA officer who helped train the Cubans who splashed ashore at the Bay of Pigs 51 years ago today. "But their fight was doomed before the first man hit the beach." That CIA man, Grayston Lynch, knew something about fighting - and about long odds. He carried scars from Omaha Beach, The Battle of the Bulge and Korea's Heartbreak Ridge. But in those battles Lynch and his band of brothers counted on the support of their Commander in Chief. At the Bay of Pigs, Grayston Lynch (an American) and his band of brothers (Cubans)...
  • Justice Kennedy's Million Dollar Question: Can you create commerce in order to regulate it?

    Hoover Institution ^ | 4/3/12 | Richard Epstein
    The entire landscape of Congress’s constitutional powers changed on March 27, 2012, when, very early in the argument over the individual mandate, Justice Anthony Kennedy asked a somewhat shaken Solicitor General Donald Verrilli this simple question: “Can you create commerce in order to regulate it?” I was as surprised by that opening gambit as everyone else. But surely not as dismayed. As three full days of oral arguments confirmed, that one question turned the constitutional showdown over Obamacare into a real horse race, with a five to four vote to strike the mandate down perhaps now the most likely outcome....
  • Swingin’ Kennedy : The liberties of more than 300 million people hinge on just one man.

    National Review ^ | 03/31/2012 | Mark Steyn
    Since the retirement of Sandra Day O’Connor, Swingin’ Anthony Kennedy has been the swingingest swinger on the Supreme Court, the big Numero Cinco on all those 5–4 white-knuckle nail-biting final scores. So naturally Court observers have been paying close attention to his interventions in the Obamacare oral arguments. So far he doesn’t sound terribly persuaded by the administration’s line: “The government is saying that the federal government has a duty to tell the individual citizen that it must act, and that is different from what we have in previous cases, and that changes the relationship of the federal government to...

    PAXTON, MASSACHUSETTS, March 30, 2012, (LifeSiteNews.com) – Members of the Kennedy clan may be shoo-ins for every office in the state of Massachusetts, but they are not guaranteed access to young Catholic minds. Anna Maria College in Paxton uninvited Victoria Reggie Kennedy, the widow of Sen. Ted Kennedy, after Bishop Robert J. McManus said her positions on abortion, homosexuality, and the Obama administration’s mandate on insurance coverage for abortifacient contraception and sterilization were incompatible with Catholic teaching. The college said in a press release that it obeyed the bishop “with great regret,” saying that “as a small, Catholic college that...

    On St. Patrick's Day I had the pleasure of speaking to about 350 Catholics who gathered together to attend a conference put on by New Ways Ministry, which is an effort to support the LGBT community in the Catholic Church. The women and men I spoke to included nuns and priests, children who had come out and parents who wanted to be supportive. Two female priests gave me special blessing and I left the meeting inspired by the devotion of those who attended. New Ways Ministry has a critical mission, since changing the Church will help those who suffer from...

    So far there doesn't appear to have been any fireworks — or more accurately, duds --- at the Supreme Court today as there were yesterday. In part, that's because the topics under review aren't as explosive: severability and Medicaid expansion. That doesn't mean that the day has been entirely uninteresting, either, as Philip Klein reports for the Washington Examiner: Justices on the U.S. Supreme Court this morning considered what to do with the rest of President Obama's national health care law if its individual health insurance mandate is struck down. Though it was difficult to get a clear read on...

    There are not many women in their mid 50s who would confidently stride around in a bikini. But Caroline Kennedy hit the beach in St. Barts yesterday and proudly displayed her great figure. The 54-year-old author and member of the Camelot dynasty showed off her toned stomach in a purple two piece and had an idyllic afternoon on the French Caribbean island. She spent time splashing around in the ocean before relaxing on the sand with her husband Edwin Schlossberg, 66, and two of their three children. The couple, who have been married for 25 years but are rarely...

    The Kennedys are still the royal family of Massachusetts, not just in politics, but also in the wonderful world of “nonprofits.” You’ve been hearing a lot lately about local nonprofits on wild spending sprees. But they’re pikers compared to Mr. and Mrs. Joseph P. Kennedy II of Citizens Energy. Let’s go straight to IRS Form 990 filed with the state attorney general for the year 2010. Joe Kennedy, the former congressman and father of JoJoJo Kennedy, who next January will inherit Barney Frank’s seat in the U.S. House, is the CEO of Citizens Energy. He made $708,198 in 2010 at...

    Joseph P. Kennedy III is defending his dad’s vocal support for oil-rich U.S. antagonist and Iran ally Venezuela, saying the deal his father’s power-for-the-poor nonprofit struck with a state-run petrol firm has done plenty of good and little, if any, harm.

    Check out form 990 from Atty. Gen. Marsha Coakley's public-charities website. Good old Joe, ex-Congressman and father of Congressional wannabe JoJoJo Kennedy, made a total of $708,000+ in all of his Citizens Energy dealings in 2010. And guess who Citizens' "director of marketing" is. None other than Mrs. Joe Kennedy, a/k/a Beth. She took home another $261,000. Hugo Chavez must be muy proud of his gringo amigos!

  • RFK Jr.: Inhofe is 'call girl' for Big Oil

    Politico ^ | March 6, 2012 | DARREN SAMUELSOHN
    Leave it to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to one-up Rush Limbaugh in the name-calling department. "Speaking of prostitutes, big oil's top call girl Sen Inhofe wants to kill fuel economy backed by automakers, small biz, enviros, & consumers," the New York-based environmentalist wrote Tuesday on Twitter. Kennedy was targeting Inhofe for a letter the Oklahoma Republican sent last week to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson that questions the Obama administration's fuel economy and air pollution policies. Inhofe spokesman Matt Dempsey said Kennedy's tweet crosses the line, especially in the wake of Limbaugh’s apology to a Georgetown University student after calling her...

    Archdiocese of Denver website ^ | March 1, 2010 | ARCHBISHOP CHAPUT
    ...Fifty years ago this fall, in September 1960, Sen. John F. Kennedy, the Democratic candidate for president, spoke to the Greater Houston Ministerial Association. He had one purpose. He needed to convince 300 uneasy Protestant ministers, and the country at large, that a Catholic like himself could serve loyally as our nation’s chief executive. Kennedy convinced the country, if not the ministers, and went on to be elected. And his speech left a lasting mark on American politics. It was sincere, compelling, articulate – and wrong. Not wrong about the patriotism of Catholics, but wrong about American history and very...

    Douglas Kennedy and his wife Molly with their son Boru. The petite, Brooklyn-born nurse who tussled with Robert F. Kennedy’s son in a hospital maternity ward was stunned that she fought with a member of Camelot, her husband said Saturday. Steve Luciano, 57, said his 5-foot-tall wife, Cari, was just doing her job when she tried to stop Douglas Kennedy from leaving the hospital with his 2-day-old baby boy. “Her comment to me that night was, ‘I was assaulted tonight and could you believe it, it was a Kennedy who did it?’” Luciano told the Daily News on Saturday in...

    MSNBC host Chris Matthews told The Daily Caller that he would still consider John F. Kennedy a hero and still would have written his new book “Jack Kennedy: Elusive Hero” if his daughter had been one-time White House intern Mimi Alford. Alford recently wrote “Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath” about an affair she says started when she was 19 years old. In the book she claims Kennedy took her virginity and then asked her to perform oral sex on his aides. TheDC caught up with Matthews on Monday at Ford’s Theatre...

    BOSTON — Joseph Kennedy III is formally jumping into the race for the Massachusetts congressional seat now held by retiring U.S. Rep. Barney Frank. A member of the campaign who requested anonymity so as not to preempt the candidate’s announcement tells The Associated Press the Democrat is expected to make the announcement Thursday. Kennedy recently moved from Cambridge to Brookline, part of the state’s newly redrawn 4th Congressional District. Kennedy is the son of former U.S. Rep. Joseph Kennedy II and a grandson of the late Robert F. Kennedy. The family has deep ties to the Boston suburb. Kennedy announced...

    I knew that John F. Kennedy was a compulsive, even pathological adulterer, given to taking outlandish risks after he entered the White House. I knew he treated women like whores. And I knew he had more than a few issues with his father about toughness and manliness and all that. But before I read in the newspaper that Mimi Alford's just-released memoir, Once Upon A Secret: My Affair With President John F. Kennedy And Its Aftermath, described giving Dave Powers a blow job at JFK's request and in his presence, I didn't know that Kennedy had an appetite for subjecting...
