    Full title: Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Picks And Chooses Which Parts of Her Life to Highlight – But Here's What She Left Out Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic Congressional candidate from New York, hit the scene a few months ago and quickly became the face of the future of the Democratic Party. Her socialist positions made her popular with Bernie Sanders and other of the like. After all, she is a member of the Democratic Socialists of America. On Saturday, Ocasio-Cortez celebrated her birthday in an odd way: by bragging about her "accomplishments" and the life she's built over the last seven years....

    FULL TITLE: Not All Women: GOP Women Are Furious Over Democrats' Anti-Kavanaugh Smear Campaign; UPDATE: Dem Strategists Worry The Democratic Party is the one that supports women, is for women, and is fighting for their rights. And yet, some of their biggest supporters in business and media are absolute pigs. Look at disgraced former New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, former CBS News Executive Les Moonves, and of course, former Hollywood media mogul Harvey Weinstein. There was JFK, Ted Kennedy, and Bill Clinton. All parties above treated women like garbage. They’re sleaze. Yet, it surely helps to keep news of...

    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.

    Question for Mike Barnicle: do the names "Bill Clinton" and "Ted Kennedy" ring a bell? We ask because they make a mockery of his professed concern about "damage" to the "revered" institutions of the presidency and the Senate. On today's Morning Joe, Barnicle said: "[T]he institution of the presidency, and the United States Senate, that everyone so revered not that long ago, is now so badly damaged that one question that might be asked is how long will it take to repair the damage that is being done on a daily basis to both institutions?"Get the rest of the story...

    Ricki Seidman, the Democratic operative who is advising Brett Kavanaugh’s accuser, predicted in July that there would be a “strategy” to defeat Kavanaugh’s nomination. Seidman interviewPolitico reported on Thursday that Seidman, who also advised Anita Hill to testify against Clarence Thomas in 1991, is giving advice to Dr. Christine Blasey Ford. On July 10, Seidman said on a conference call with the American Constitution Society that she believed a “strategy will emerge” that would upend Kavanaugh’s nomination. Audio of the call was recorded and uploaded by the GOP on Thursday. “I do think that over the coming days and weeks...

    Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said at a press briefing on Tuesday that Sen. Ted Kennedy’s “career was eerily similar” to Sen. John McCain’s. Addressing the question of what the Senate would do to honor the late senator, McConnell said: “That’s the way we handled Senator Kennedy, whose career was eerily similar to Senator McCain’s in terms of their time here and their reputations for being lions of the Senate and for operating on a bipartisan basis.” […] “With regard to the appropriate way to honor Senator McCain, I’ll be appointing a group on a bipartisan basis to convene after...

    The flags at the White House, which were lowered over the weekend to mark the death of Sen. John McCain, are back at full-staff. The flags at the U.S. Capitol, meanwhile, remained at half-staff on Monday to honor the Arizona Republican, who died Saturday of brain cancer. […] U.S. Flag Code states that flags be lowered “on the day of death and the following day for a Member of Congress.” After Democratic Sen. Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts died in 2009, President Barack Obama ordered flags at the White House be flown at half-staff for five days. …

    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."

    Today we have the Mueller team and every liberal in Washington frantically searching for any shred of evidence of even the lowest-level contact between a Trump campaign official and someone in Moscow to work against Hillary Clinton in 2016. Well, here, in this May 1983 document, we have indisputable hard evidence — an actual KGB memo — communicating straight to Andropov a direct offer from Ted Kennedy. The lead words atop the document: “SPECIAL IMPORTANCE.” The next words: “Committee on State Security of the USSR.” That’s the KGB. Then this stunning header: “Regarding Senator Kennedy’s request to the General Secretary...

    Picking his way through the Soviet archives that Boris Yeltsin had just thrown open, in 1991 Tim Sebastian, a reporter for the London Times, came across an arresting memorandum. Composed in 1983 by Victor Chebrikov, the top man at the KGB, the memorandum was addressed to Yuri Andropov, the top man in the entire USSR. The subject: Sen. Edward Kennedy. "On 9-10 May of this year," the May 14 memorandum explained, "Sen. Edward Kennedy's close friend and trusted confidant [John] Tunney was in Moscow." (Tunney was Kennedy's law school roommate and a former Democratic senator from California.) "The senator charged...

    Signed boxing gloves from Muhammad Ali, documents from the Bill Clinton impeachment and 3,000 boxes of other papers and memorabilia from a 42-year career in Washington, D.C., will be part of a library and think tank being named for retiring U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch on Wednesday. […] “Presidents normally open entire libraries to house their papers, and those normally cover a period of just four or eight years,” Hatch said. “With 42 years of service, I have quite a bit of history that I’d like to share with my fellow Utahns and those who come here from out of state.”...

    As I wrote a few days ago, I had minimal expectations of Chappaquiddick The Movie, which opened last week despite the best efforts of the Kennedy family and their various retainers and enablers. I have always been revolted by the fact that Ted, after killing Mary Jo Kopechne, did not have the decency to do a John Profumo and retire from public life for the rest of his days - and I was even more revolted by the way Massachusetts voters did not have the decency to impose that choice upon him... That combination of outsiders and neophytes may be...

    Me: Ted. Thank you for coming back from the dead for this interview. I had the opportunity to see a premiere showing of Chappaquiddick last week. Let me say that the guy who played you did a great job. He looked really marvelous, even though we got to see a rather snarly side of you. Bruce Dern played your Dad, Joe and frankly scared the heebie jeebies out of the audience with his cataplectic stare. But I digress. Again, thank you for coming out for the interview. Ted Kennedy: Actually, the pleasure is all mine. I was glad to finally...

    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...

    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...

    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.
