    Blissfully unaware of how hot the irony burned, Robert Kennedy Jr. yesterday took to a public protest to rail avidly in favor of censorship. The United States government, Kennedy lamented in an interview with Climate Depot, is not permitted by law to punish or to imprison those who disagree with him and this, he proposed, is a problem of existential proportions. Were he to have his way, Kennedy admitted, he would cheer the prosecution of a host of treasonous figures among them a number of unspecified politicians; those btes noires of the global Left, Kansass own Koch Brothers;...

    Lest we forget, it was 55 years ago ( July 18, 1969 ) that Ted Kennedy crawled and slimed his way to land and Armstrong landed on the moon ( July 20th). Progressives should not be allowed to forget the anniversary of the death of Mary Jo Kopechne and the real war on women. A blogger named Brian Cates on Twitchy has given a riveting accounting of the hour by hour actions of the infamous and duplicitous Ted Kennedy. At the end of the blog a poster calling himself the DivingPetrel imagined how an Oliver Stone Hollywood would re-enact the...

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr. kept a list of dozens of women filed under the letter G in his cellphone, a code that his late wife believed stood for goomah, the Italian slang for mistress. Two of the women listed in this digital blackbook factor into what should be an interesting summer for the environmental activist and son of the slain US senator. The first is Curb Your Enthusiasm actress Cheryl Hines, whom Kennedy began dating the year they both filed for divorce. The two plan to wed soon. The other is Greenwich, Conn., homemaker Chelsea Chapman Kirwan, who has been...

    ackie Kennedys marriage to JFK was headed to a divorce when his life was cut short by an assassin's bullet in November 1963. She was about to become the only First Lady to divorce a sitting president. That's the shocking bombshell in a new book Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis: A life Beyond Her Wildest Dreams by Darwin Porter and Danforth Prince from Blue Moon Productions publisher. Jackie had had enough. Fed up with his constant womanizing, and having her own dalliances that fueled the fire of her desire for liberation, Jackie told her confidantes that she wanted out. Her anger amped...

    NEW HAVEN, Conn. Ted Kennedy Jr. is planning to run for the state Senate in Connecticut. Two people briefed on the decision say the son of the late U.S. Sen. Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts will announce Tuesday that he intends to seek the Democratic nomination for the state's 12th District. They spoke on condition of anonymity because Kennedy wants to make the announcement. Kennedy is a 52-year-old health care lawyer who lives in Branford, a coastal town outside New Haven, and has been mentioned as a possible political candidate for years. He had said last month he was considering...

    Shes a mom, a human-rights leader oh, and another fatherless Kennedy. Testifying in her own defense at her drugged driving trial Wednesday, Kerry Kennedy wasted little time before playing the Daddy card. Daddy was the attorney general during the civil rights movement and then a senator, the 54-year-old testified, supposedly explaining why she grew up in Virginia, but coyly invoking the memory of her slain father, Sen Robert F.

    To prove the liberal media never, ever stops promoting the Kennedy “dynasty” ad infinitum, the December 16 edition of people magazine highlights this story in the table of contents: “JFK’s only grandson, Jack Kennedy Schlossberg, steps up to carry the family torch.” He’s only 20 and going to Yale. The headline is "HEIR TO CAMELOT." Next to his picture on page 92 is the caption “A HUNK LIKE HIS UNCLE: Schlossberg has JFK Jr. infatuation potential – and more. ‘He will be a major figure of his generation,’ predicts Kennedy family biographer Laurence Leamer.” It's hard to tell if this...

I'll move out and you'll have all the problems,' according to an explosive new book. In 'These Few Precious Days: The Final Year of Jack with Jackie,' author Christopher Andersen claims Jackie 'knew everything' about Jack's cheating and turned a blind eye, but his relationship with Marilyn 'seemed to bother her the most.' And she was right to fear the bombshell actress, because Marilyn's sights were firmly set on becoming the President's second...

Kennedy, an attorney and bestselling book editor, is being rewarded for helping put Obama in the White House where her father served until his assassination 50 years ago. If confirmed, she would be the first woman in a post where many other prominent Americans have served to strengthen a vital Asian tie. Kennedy, 55, doesnt have any obvious ties to Japan, a...

    The Kennedy family name is laden with history and brings to mind a definite set of characteristics: glamor, power, intelligence, wealth, influence. Kennedys have had their name on a president, numerous senators, representatives, ambassadors, and other high office holders. The Kennedy dynasty, if you wish to call it that, has seen its share of triumphs and disasters, of course. I need not go into detail; scores of books have been written about them, from putting humans on the Moon and the championing of civil rights to personal tragedies of assassination, death, scandal, and more. Most of these issues are in...

    The late U.S. Sen. Edward M. Kennedys son, Ted Jr., is among the names being floated as potential candidates for Connecticut U.S. Sen. Joseph Liebermans seat in 2012. Kennedy, the middle child of the late senator and his former wife, Joan, has been mentioned as a possible candidate for Liebermans seat, which the 23-year senator is giving up when his term ends next year. One Kennedy family friend called the 49-year-old attorney, who lives in Connecticut, a great candidate. No one knew Lieberman would be getting out. I think Teddy would be the odds-on favorite were he to enter the...

    EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. Two years ago, it would have been unthinkable that both seats held by Kennedys could go Republican. But Scott Brown's January election in Mass paved the way for the GOP who are hoping state Rep. John J. Loughlin II will win the race for Patrick's House seat. "There is extreme voter unrest about the liberal, big-government, agenda that is bankrupting our nation," said Eric Fehrnstrom, the architect of Mr. Brown's win--now a strategist with Loughlin's campaign. "People are beginning to wake up to the fact that our country is on the brink of financial ruin and RI...
