    the lib spin is now that Graham had an “unhinged meltdown” because of course it is. There was nothing unhinged about the words coming out of Lindsey Graham’s mouth yesterday. He had more sense in his pinky finger than the entire Democratic party combined. Whatever. The libs are going with crap like this: "Oh my god. This is every woman’s nightmare. This is a terrifying image." https://t.co/mIgEN2ALhj — Maria Shriver (@mariashriver) September 27, 2018 um… "Just asked my wife.

    John McCain’s death from brain cancer at age 81 came exactly nine years after the death of Ted Kennedy – and both longtime U.S. senators died from the same type of brain cancer. McCain, R-Ariz., had been battling the illness for just over a year while Kennedy, D-Mass., died at age 77, 13 months after his diagnosis, the Arizona Republic reported. Both succumbed to glioblastoma, which affects roughly 10,000 Americans a year and is described by doctors as "highly malignant."

    The Kennedy clan held a button-down rehearsal dinner Friday night ahead of this weekend’s wedding of Robert 'Bobby' Kennedy III and former CIA spook Amaryllis Fox. The shindig at the historic beachside Kennedy Compound in Hyannis Port on Cape Cod lured about 200 family members and hangers-on who munched on oysters, seafood and tuna freshly fished off Cape Cod and sipped Corona beer from the bottle in a tent built after day-long rains. The Cape Cod chic dress code included blue jeans, beach shorts, sandals and sun dresses. While it was an intimate affair, there were still plenty of boldfaced...
  • Ethel Kennedy's hunger strike hypocrisy: Widow of RFK treated her immigrant servants 'like dogs [tr]

    Wearing a green jacket that read 'I really do care,' Ethel Kennedy celebrated at the annual Hyannis Port annual Fourth of July parade.with a clear slap at the first lady. Just a week before, it was announced that the 90-year-old would be participating in a hunger strike to protest President Trump's immigration policies on the southern border. But Ethel's protestations may be somewhat hypocritical, as Robert F. Kennedy's widow ‘treated her immigrant servants like dogs,’ according to insiders who worked for her.

    President Donald Trump's controversial tactics at the southern border have managed to draw the ire of a powerful neighbor to the north - the Kennedys. Ethel Kennedy and her brood have been vocal about their disdain for the Trump administration's zero tolerance policy for weeks now, with Ethel herself even announcing that she would be fasting in protest. And on the eve of Fourth of July the family launched a more direct attack on the administration - and First Lady Melania Trump in particular - by breaking out some paint and and green jackets, on which they each wrote: 'I...
  • Bobby Kennedy’s son thinks he was killed by a second shooter. Is there anything to it?

    Conspiracies surrounding President John F. Kennedy’s death may be most widely circulated. However, one theory questioning our understanding of Robert F. Kennedy’s murder in 1968 has arguably gained more recent traction, including from those closest to the assassination and even one immediate member of Kennedy’s family. According to the Post, Kennedy’s second oldest son now believes, after months of research, that his father was killed by a second gunman. “What Bobby Kennedy Jr. has done, he’s launched a whole new generation of conspiracy nuts who are going to believe that Sirhan didn’t do it and that somebody else did,” he...

    I have never believed in conspiracy theories. Though some critics have lumped me in with conspiracy theorists excogitating on Clinton aide Vince Foster’s death in Fort Marcy Park and other such phantasmagorias, I plead innocence. It is just too difficult to keep a conspiracy under wraps. Particularly in Washington and New York, where garrulity is the rule. A conspirator sitting on a big story is likely to tell someone for money or for prestige or for the sheer fun of it. If I recall correctly, even Woodward and Bernstein eventually told their secret about Deep Throat, and that was a...

    HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) - The Connecticut Supreme Court has overturned the 1975 murder conviction of Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel. The Hartford Courant reports that the Connecticut Supreme Court voted 4-3 that Skakel's trial lawyer was so ineffective, that his right to a fair trial was violated. Skakel was convicted in the murder of his friend, Martha Moxley, when the two were neighbors in Greenwich. Skakel has been free since late 2013 while the court considered this latest appeal. He is expected to remain free unless state prosecutors make what many lawyers predict would be an unlikely decision to retry him...

    There is nothing like historical context to help evaluate and better understand current events. So, in regard to the mainstream media’s breathless, non-stop coverage of the self-levitating Trump-Russia collusion theory, consider this bit of trivia: In 1991, when Russian President Boris Yeltsin opened the archives of the Soviet Central Committee, Western researchers quickly descended on Moscow to plow through the treasure trove of previously classified official documents. Among those researchers was Tim Sebastian, a reporter for the London Times and the BBC who found a May 14, 1983 letter from KGB chief Viktor Chebrikov to Soviet General Secretary Yuri Andropov....

    In a New York Times op-ed published Friday, a liberal journalist and film critic complained the new film Chappaquiddick was a "character assassination" of its central character, Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy. "How ‘Chappaquiddick’ Distorts a Tragedy" wrote Neal Gabler, who is working on a biography of Kennedy. Gabler complained the film, released in theaters Friday, has been "heavily promoted by conservative media outlets, and reviewers across the political spectrum have praised what they deem its damning but factual approach. Damning it is; factual it is not." There actually was no "cover-up" of Kennedy's car accident that led to the death...
  • Ted Kennedy: Lion or Jackal?

    On April 6, Chappaquiddick, a movie detailing the events involving Senator Ted Kennedy on Martha's Vineyard in July 1969, will be released. That incident demonstrated the depths to which the Kennedys were willing to go to salvage the political career of the last of the Kennedy sons. In subsequent years, the actions of Ted Kennedy that night were forgiven by the Democrats, as were subsequent actions as noted below. The movie is based on a book, Senatorial Privilege: The Chappaquiddick Coverup, by Leo J. Damore, who committed suicide in 1995. Well, that is the official version, at least. The Kennedy...

    Senator Edward Kennedy, one of the most famous members of America’s most famous family, understood that he belonged as much to popular culture as to political culture. Now, nine years after his death, comes a movie about the event that, almost as much as the circumstances of his birth, established him in the tabloid pantheon: Chappaquiddick.

    On April 6, a bombshell will hit America's theaters. That bombshell comes in the form of an understated, well-made, well-acted film called "Chappaquiddick." (Full disclosure: They advertise with my podcast.) The film tells the story of Ted Kennedy's 1969 killing of political aide Mary Jo Kopechne; the Massachusetts Democratic senator drove his car off a bridge and into the Poucha Pond, somehow escaped the overturned vehicle and left Kopechne to drown. She didn't drown, though. Instead, she reportedly suffocated while waiting for help inside an air bubble while Kennedy waited 10 hours to call for help. The Kennedy family and...

    “Chappaquiddick” tells the story of a relatively unknown scandal involving one of the most glorified families in American history: the Kennedys. So, it is not surprising that the cast, executive producers, and director felt some nerves taking on the project. For Byron Allen, Entertainment Studios CEO and co-founder and executive producer of the film, the pushback to tell this story came when he first decided to produce the film. “Unfortunately, there are some very powerful people who tried to put pressure on me not to release this movie,” Allen said. “They went out of their way to try and influence...

    Mary Jo Kopechne had been dead for several months when her parents began to have serious questions about what really happened the night of July 18, 1969. At first, Gwen and Joe Kopechne had believed Senator Ted Kennedy’s account of that evening. “They trusted him,” says Mary Jo’s aunt, Georgetta Potoski, 75. “They loved the Kennedys. But later on, they started to question what happened.” Ted Kennedy could never escape the unanswered questions about his 10-hour delay in reporting the accident to Edgartown police. “The longer it went on, more and more inconsistencies were discovered and he wasn’t telling Gwen...

    Searing Big Screen “Chappaquiddick” Thriller: Mary Jo Kopechne as First #MeToo Victim of Kennedy Family Money, Power and CorruptionI think John Curran’s masterful “Chappaquiddick” was shown once in Toronto for a handful of critics and distributors. Byron Allen was very smart to pick it up for his new Entertainment Company studio–it’s going to be a big hit. What he could never have predicted back in September that by now the movie would have a whole new layer of meaning: Mary Jo Kopechne, left to drown in the waters of Martha’s Vineyard in July 1969, was the first #MeToo victim. Her...

The wet-lipped Joe Kennedy III. Of course there are the obligatory denials by young Joe himself but Dovere's paean to the Prince-in-waiting is so chock full of saccharine as to give you a toothache while reading Kennedy Could Be the Democrats’ Best Hope (But May Not Want to Be):
