    Former President Barack Obama returns to the spotlight when he officially receives an award for political courage from the John F. Kennedy family. Obama has been named this year's recipient of the Profile in Courage Award. The Sunday night award presentation takes place at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library. The award is named after a 1957 Pulitzer Prize-winning book by the late president that profiles eight U.S. senators who risked their careers by taking principled though unpopular positions.

    Complete Headline: A floral flop! Caroline Kennedy models a VERY unflattering dress on the Met Gala red carpet - just hours after being hailed by Vogue as one of the 'best dressed of all time' Caroline Kennedy is known for her classic sense of style and fashionable know-how, so it came as quite a shock to see the diplomat take to the red carpet at this year's Met Gala in a highly unflattering - and rather bizarre - dress that quite closely resembled an antique lampshade. The 59-year-old, a close friend of Met Gala chair Anna Wintour, arrived at the...

    Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the son of the late-Robert Francis "Bobby" Kennedy probably made the most shocking statement during his interview for CNN. Well, liberals will definitely be shocked, that's a sure bet. "Donald Trump could be the greatest president in history if he wanted to, he could easily be the next Teddy Roosevelt." Is this a clear sign of admiration or what? "Well, I think Donald Trump can be, you know, any kind of president he wants. He’s actually — he has this extraordinary opportunity because he's coming into office less burdened by obligation than probably any president in...

    President Donald Trump's "America first" approach to foreign policy is "alarming," Caroline Kennedy, who recently resigned her post as U.S. ambassador to Japan, said Friday morning. "To be taken for granted, or to be insulted as an ally who has fought alongside the United States for example, with Australia, or who contributes a huge amount to American security, in the case of Japan and Korea, is alarming," Kennedy told NBC's "Today" anchor Matt Lauer in an exclusive interview. "I think that, hopefully, the president will realize the benefits of working with our friends and allies around the region." Kennedy resigned...

    Caroline Kennedy lost her Ambassador post in Japan when Trump took office. He sent her packing and hasn’t even bothered to name a replacement. But according to the New York Post, she’s not done with public service. Kennedy is planning to run for the U.S. senate in 2018. First, she’s going to be penning a memoir, but then she’ll be getting down to work. She plans to follow in the footsteps of her uncle Robert Kennedy, and run for a New York senate seat. She plans to target the seat of Democratic Senator Kristen Gillibrand. Or she could run for...

    President-elect Donald Trump has tapped a Kennedy – and a vaccine skeptic – to run a new commission on the safety of vaccines. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. revealed his new role after a meeting at Trump Tower on Tuesday. He said Trump had asked him to head a commission on 'vaccine safety and scientific integrity' and that he had agreed to do so. Both Trump and Kennedy have have raised suspicions about vaccines despite their overwhelming support among scientists and physicians as a way to prevent the spread of deadly diseases that can infect infants and other children when the...

    A 22-year-old member of the Kennedy family arrested after a bar fight early Thursday was defending a gay friend who was being bullied, his father said. "Conor has always reacted against bullying," said Robert Kennedy Jr. "I'm happy he stood up for his friend." John Conor Kennedy - who goes by Conor - had asked a group of four men to apologize to his friend for calling him a common homophobic slur an hour before the fight erupted at about 1:40 a.m. outside the Bootsy Bellows nightclub, Robert Kennedy said.

    Daily Beast reporter Liza Foreman tells readers in her lede that she was "not all that familiar" with Chappaquiddick, the remote island where Kennedy drove off a bridge late at night with a young woman who drowned in the car while Kennedy escaped. Kennedy failed to report the accident until the next morning and was later given a suspended sentence for leaving the scene of a fatal accident. The death of 28-year-old Mary Jo Kopechne, a campaign worker to Kennedy's late brother Robert, shadowed Ted Kennedy for the rest of his life and arguably kept him from ever winning the...

    Mental health advocate and former Rep. Patrick Kennedy made a plea in the Washington Post urging people to stop calling Donald Trump 'crazy.'The son of the late Sen. Ted Kennedy started his op-ed by detailing a number of names the Republican nominee has been called: 'crazy,' 'psychopath,' not 'sane,' having a 'screw lose' and suffering from 'narcissistic personality disorder' – none of which are actually diagnosed.'With all of this damaging rhetoric floating around in our national political discourse, especially what we hear from and about Trump, it’s no wonder that people remain silent and the suffering continues,' Kennedy argued.(snip)'And believe...

    ‘Dictator’ Kerry Kennedy is ruining family legacy By Maureen Callahan She claims to be a great advocate for human rights — but former employees tell The Post that behind closed doors, Kerry Kennedy is a monster who’s driving her father’s legacy into the ground. “For someone who’s a human-rights lawyer, I don’t think I’ve ever met someone who cares so little for the people who work for her,” says an employee who resigned from the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice & Human Rights. “She treats them so badly, belittling and embarrassing them in front of others. Everyone who works...

    Reps. Joe Kennedy III (D-Mass.) and Bobby Scott (D-Va.) introduced the Do No Harm Act Wednesday, which would amend the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) to specify that religious exceptions should not apply to “protections against discrimination or the promotion of equal opportunity” and “access to, information about, referrals for, provision of, or coverage for, any health care item or service.” The legislation is intended to “clarify that no one can seek religious exemption from laws guaranteeing fundamental civil and legal rights.”

    RadarOnline.com has obtained a top-secret State Department briefing that rips U.S. Ambassador Kennedy’s work at the American Embassy in Japan, citing “confusion among staff” and other “major” issues! President Obama appointed Kennedy, 58, as the U.S. Ambassador to Japan in 2013. Since then, an investigation has uncovered and detailed 65 charges against the facility, which employs 727 people and has a yearly budget of almost $100 million. Most notably, the report revealed that Kennedy often runs over that budget, and that they found $2.3 million in “funds [that could be] put to better use.” There is also reported “confusion among...

    If you still own shares in solar energy it’s probably a sign that you’ve been in the sun too long: the sector is tanking – and deservedly so – as reality dawns that this is a Potemkin industry, an Enron of a con-trick, whose survival depends not on the energy it generates but on the subsidies it squeezes from the taxpayer. Consider Exhibit A: the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System in the California desert. This $2.2 billion project, heavily backed with federal grants by the Obama administration, is absolutely brilliant at killing birds. According to some estimates it accounts for...

Kennedy's daughters, Daily Mail Online has learned exclusively. The result of his inaction is that ex-wife Kerry Kennedy is considerably worse off than her eight surviving siblings or other members of...

    Every time another foreign terrorist murders Americans in cold blood, I think of Ted Kennedy. It’s still unclear how this latest Middle East monster infiltrated the United States. But you can bet it involved his family taking advantage of one of Ted Kennedy’s “landmark” laws — the Immigration Reform Act of 1965, perhaps, or the Refugee Act of 1980. Or maybe his father utilized one of the “terrorist visas” enshrined by the Immigration Act of 1990. That catastrophe, by the way, was signed into law by Juan Ellis Bush’s father, Bush 41. Teddy’s fingerprints are all over each of these...

    Robert Kennedy Jr.’s underage younger daughter Kyra Kennedy made a scene when she was refused entry at an upstate New York nightclub, screaming at security, “I am a Kennedy, Google me!” In a scene far from the Paris Bal des débutantes, where a Dior-clad Kyra made her formal society debut in December 2013, the 19-year-old made a drunken stink at club Lava at the Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, NY, last Thursday when security didn’t accept her ID. Witnesses said Kyra appeared inebriated when she arrived at the club and was trying to enter an over-21 area using a...
