  • The Short, Very Surprising History Of Collusion

    The Daily Caller ^ | April 18, 2018 | David Pietrusza
    The further back you go in history, the more you learn. Take the case of “collusion” or the interference by one nation in another nation’s electoral process. There are a lot of examples: Barack Obama urging Brits to reject Brexit; Harry Truman’s propping up anti-Communist parties in post-war Italy, the Communist Party USA’s control of Henry Wallace’s 1948 Progressive Party presidential bid (in 1944, the Communists had formally endorsed FDR), British Ambassador Sir Lionel Sackville-West being accused of favoring Democrat Grover Cleveland (“For Canada and for England, No Doubt But What He’ll Do/But America Wants for President an American Through...
  • The immeasurable hypocrisy of the Democrat Party

    The immeasurable hypocrisy of the Democrat Party is really coming to light. This is not an article to defend Donald Trump's alleged immorality. This article is about the news media's hypocrisy and not reporting the infidelity of Kennedy, Clinton and many other leaders. Morality only matters to Democrats when the opposing party has failed in that Arena. The only purpose for dragging Cohen and Trump into court is to destroy the support from Trump's constituency. All of this is an attack on us, his supporters, not on Trump himself. It is not going to work. Funny how when Clinton was...
  • Kennedy Lied, People Died-and the Media Covered it Up

    I refer, of course, to the Bay of Pigs freedom-fight, 57 years ago this week. Given that Hollywood and the mainstream media have finally gotten around to revealing the hideous truth about a Kennedy’s perfidy and how the media/Democrat complex helped cover it up (Teddy, Chappaquiddick)—who knows? Perhaps one day they’ll level with us about what REALLY happened at the Bay of Pigs?``I really admire toughness and courage, and I will tell you that the people of this brigade (Brigada 2506) really have that…you were let down by our country.'' (Donald Trump, addressing Bay of Pigs Veterans at Bay of...
  • Film Review: 'Chappaquiddick' (plus DFU SING-ALONG: Ted Kennedy, Chappaquiddick Lifeguard)

    Variety ^ | April 2018
    updated version of DFU SING ALONG: Ted Kennedy, Chappaquiddick Lifeguard A meticulous docudrama rivetingly recounts the tragic car accident and its aftermath — an event of criminal negligence and cover-up — that defined the life of Sen. Edward M. Kennedy. Over the years, a great many actors have taken a turn at playing one of the Kennedy brothers (in made-for-TV movies, on “Saturday Night Live,” in big-screen historical dramas). The vast majority of these performances have been mediocre, a handful have been quite good, and a few have been memorable — like Bruce Greenwood’s cuttingly terse and commanding JFK...

    It’s November 1963, JFK survives the assassination attempt. After months of intense headlines worldwide speculating his recovery, he emerges on the world stage triumphant just days before the Spring of ’64. Kennedy snatches the sympathy vote from LBJ’s slimy clutches and handily wins a second term. Johnson is never to be President. Is there a Vietnam or another stage inevitable with a different outcome? And what becomes the intentions of The Great Society?

    "Chappaquiddick" did an estimated $1.9 million in ticket sales in 1,560 USA theaters. I can't find how much the movie cost, but if it's more than $20 million, it will have a very hard time breaking even.

    Hollywood in Toto ^ | 6 Apr 2018 | Christian Toto
    This devastating time capsule can't help but stain the Kennedy legacy. There’s a good chance the upcoming biopic of former Vice President Dick Cheney won’t be fair or balanced. The film’s writer/director, Adam McKay, is an ardent leftist who injects his politics into his work. McKay even flirted with a “comedy” about a dementia-addled President Ronald Reagan. Har har. The minds behind “Chappaquiddick” ditch the partisan approach like an inconvenient campaign promise. Their tale sticks to what we already know about the car accident that killed both Mary Jo Kopechne and Sen. Ted Kennedy’s presidential dreams. That’s more than enough.

    On July 18, 1969, Sen. Ted Kennedy drives his car off of a bridge on Massachusetts' Chappaquiddick Island. The accident results in the death of passenger Mary Jo Kopechne, a 28-year-old campaign strategist who worked for Kennedy. The ongoing investigation into the mysterious and scandalous events forever alters his political legacy -- and ultimately changes the course of presidential history, and let's be honest, America as we knew it before Ted Kennedy.

    The new movie about the Ted Kennedy's involvement in the death of Mary Jo Kopechne highlights the progress women have made in the Democratic party. Mary Jo Kopechne was 28 years old when she died, trapped in a car that had plunged into a Massachusetts waterway. Experts believe she didn’t drown, but suffocated: Air pockets in the car allowed her to keep breathing for many hours after the crash. This is important because Kopechne wasn’t alone at the time of the accident: Then-Senator Ted Kennedy was behind the wheel. The left does continue to struggle with how to treat misdeeds...

    So the producer of the new film about Ted Kennedy’s Chappaquiddick scandal says some “very powerful people” tried to kill his movie. What a surprise — NOT! “Unfortunately,” Byron Allen told Variety last week, “very powerful people tried to put pressure on me not to release this movie. They went out of their way to try and influence me in a negative way.” Byron Allen is a TV comedian from the ’80s who has become a successful Hollywood mogul. He just bought what’s left of The Weather Channel for $300 million. By the way, he’s also black, so you would...

    Conservatives’ expectations for honest and fair movies coming out of Hollywood are understandably low.  For decades now we have been brow-beaten and lectured by clueless celebrities on everything from saving the Spotted Owl to gun control – the latest flavor of the moment.But a breath of fresh air is blowing in from the left coast. The new movie ‘Chappaquiddick,’ from Entertainment Studios and Apex Entertainment, is a brutally honest recounting of one of America’s greatest public tragedies: the death of Mary Jo Kopechne in a car owned and driven by Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.)Producer Mark Ciardi has a winner, and...

    Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy might retire from the bench as early as this summer, a GOP senator said, and if true, President Trump would be able to nominate a justice who could tilt the nation’s highest court well to the right for the foreseeable future. "I believe that we're going to have another Supreme Court justice this year," Heller said. "I think that Kennedy is going to retire some time early summer. That being the case, Republicans are going to have another opportunity to put another Supreme Court justice in place, which I am hoping will get our base...

    Sen. Dean Heller (R-Nev.) said in a speech last week he believes Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy will retire this summer, according to audio of the speech obtained by Politico. “Kennedy is going to retire around sometime early summer,” Heller said in the speech, according to Politico. “Which I’m hoping will get our base a little motivated because right now they’re not very motivated. But I think a new Supreme Court justice will get them motivated.” Heller is facing a tough GOP primary ahead of the 2018 midterms as Las Vegas businessman Danny Tarkanian challenges Heller for the Republican nomination.

    For a party trying to float by on feminist hashtags and regain lost blue collar voters, a Kennedy seemed an odd choice to give the rebuttal to the State of the Union. And that was before they put him in front of a wrecked car. Yet, even though the speech was a farrago of platitudes given by a wholly undeserving trustfunder who appeared to be drooling and was attired like a freshman high school athlete dressing up for game day, this was a Kennedy, after all — which meant the media had to find something to praise him for. And...

    It is estimated that POTUS, DJT gathered 47.9 million "USA" viewers for his first SOTU speech on Tuesday evening. That number, by the way, does not include foreign country viewers across the world or the hundreds of live feeds, of C-Span, Right Side Broadcasting, etc. The true estimate number is calculated to be somewhere between 55-60 million viewers across the world and on "Live Screen". That is an enormous "successful" number, that does include those folks that listened to the SOTU on radio, etc., across the world. Now.....I have searched the entire internet to find the "massive numbers" (only kidding)...

    Rep. Joe Kennedy (D-Mass.), a rising star in the Democratic Party, was tapped to respond to President Trump’s first State of the Union (SOTU) Address, an opportunity riddled with perils and potential. The State of the Union response can be a make-or-break opportunity for young, ambitious politicians.Although State of the Union Addresses are typically too slow-moving for many Americans, they remain one of the most watched political events of the year, and the response to the State of the Union is the minority party’s opportunity to provide an alternative vision for the future of the country.What we learned in Kennedy’s...
