    This week, Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY) received received the Edward M. Kennedy Institute Award for Inspired Leadership. The Governor professed himself "humbled to be recognized as someone worthy of being associated with the late, great Senator Kennedy. His life was a model that I aspired to imitate. His political brilliance was demonstrated by his ability to survive the death of Mary Jo Kopechne early in his career. The incident would have ruined anyone else. He was driving drunk for a sexual hook-up with this young woman when the car plunged off a bridge into a tidal pond. He swam to...

    Pam Kelley was 18 years old in the summer of 1973 when she accepted a fateful ride in a Jeep from a male member of the Kennedy family on Nantucket. Joseph P. Kennedy II flipped the Jeep on a sandy cutoff and Pam Kelley was thrown out and paralyzed from the waist down. She would never walk again. She spent the rest of her life in a wheelchair. Pam Kelley Burkley died Friday at the age of 65. She lived 25 years longer than the doctors had predicted back in 1973. She is survived by, among others, a 31-year-old daughter...

    In the wake of President Donald Trump sounding the alarm on potential voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election, former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich (D) on Friday accused Democrats of stealing elections for a long time. Blagojevich told Newsmax TV’s “John Bachman Now” that Democratic stronghold cities changing vote counts overnight, and controlling polling places is a “time-honored tradition.” He went on to say that Democrats “stealing the presidency” is “incredibly dangerous to our democracy.”

    Sen. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) chastised President Trump for “recklessly inflaming destructive and dangerous passions. Even if his claim of a stolen election is true, raising that issue at this late date threatens our democracy. Democratic cheating is, as former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D) points out, ‘a time-honored tradition.’ Saner Republicans have long realized that this is something we must learn to live with lest we fatality undermine the unity necessary for Democrats to govern.” “Back in the 1960 election, Richard Nixon was aware that the election was marred by fraudulent votes in Illinois, but decided that for the good...

    RUSH: Here’s a question for you. Where are all the Biden surrogates on the campaign trail? Where, for example, is Bill Clinton? Where, for example, is Hillary Clinton? Hillary Clinton is absent from the trail. Biden is using Obama, but not the Clintons. Where’s Pocahontas? Where is Elizabeth Warren? Where’s Amy Klobuchar? In Minnesota. Where’s AOC? All of these people are MIA. They’re missing in action. There’s nobody out there campaigning for Biden other than Obama. Where’s Michelle Obama? Michelle Obama - am I right? - she continuously polls as the most wonderful, the best-dressed woman in the entire world....

    STAMFORD, Connecticut -- A prosecutor said Friday that Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel will not face a second trial in the killing of Martha Moxley, an announcement that came 45 years to the day after the teenager was bludgeoned to death in her wealthy Connecticut neighborhood. Chief State's Attorney Richard Colangelo Jr. said at a hearing at Stamford Superior Court that the case could not be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. Skakel, a nephew of Robert F. Kennedy's widow, Ethel Kennedy, was convicted of murder in 2002 and sentenced to 20 years to life in prison. Several appeals followed. After serving...

    President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City, snapped at a Fox Business Network host Tuesday after she compared him to the author of the now-debunked, Russian-sourced Steele dossier. The remarkable comparison by host Lisa Kennedy Montgomery, who’s known as Kennedy, was aimed at the work Giuliani has done in exposing confirmed bombshells about Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden’s son, Hunter. “We will have the people in our news departments verify all of this, because it sounds like there may be something here that is fishy that is causing Americans — giving them pause,”...

    Rudy Giuliani exploded in a heated interview with Fox Business host Kennedy Tuesday night when she threw out a comparison between his actions and those of the author of the infamous Trump dossier. Kennedy opened her show by saying Biden “should explain himself to the American people” on his son Hunter’s foreign business dealings because “we do have a right to know what he and his son were doing and how much they made doing it.” “Instead, he keeps dodging questions,” she added. She spoke with Giuliani about when he got the information he has touted about Hunter Biden and...

    President Kennedy “employed a combination of toughness, nerve and wisdom, so brilliantly controlled, so matchlessly calibrated that it dazzled the world!” (Democrat court historian and Kennedy presidential aide Arthur Schlesinger, in his media-acclaimed and Pulitzer Prize winning, A Thousand Days.) "Follow Kennedy's Lead to Deter North Korea. It's Time For Real Deterrence," wrote the late Charles Krauthammer in 2006, contrasting President Bush’s wimpy response to North Korea’s missiles to Kennedy’s testicular cowing of the Russians during the Cuban Missile Crisis.  National Review’s Andrew McCarthy said "hear-hear" to Krauthammer. "It would be better for President Bush to emulate the Kennedy strategy"...

    AS A VOTER, I have two rules of thumb: (1) I don't vote for incumbents, and (2) I don't vote for Kennedys. Rarely do I violate either rule, but on Tuesday I had no choice: In the Democratic Senate primary in Massachusetts, the incumbent, Ed Markey, was being challenged by a Kennedy and I could oppose only one of them. So I voted for Markey — that is, against Joe Kennedy III. Which made mine one of the 765,000 votes that ended Kennedy's congressional career — and, let us hope, the Kennedy political dynasty. I have nothing against Kennedy personally....

    VIDEO The Kennedy dynasty ended last night with the landslide election defeat of Joe Kennedy III. When a Kennedy can't win an election in their own Massachusetts then it is time to declare the final political termination of that dynasty. With Joe gone, this means there are no longer any Kennedys left in political office in Washington. Well, there is one Kennedy left in D.C. but he is not related to that dynasty plus he is from another political party. So that's it. With Joe's sad concession speech you can mark down September 1, 2020 as the day the...

    This may be the last Kennedy. Finally. When Joe Kennedy III, the undistinguished, 39-year-old, four-term Democratic congressman from Massachusetts, announced he would challenge longtime incumbent Ed Markey for the US Senate last September, the liberal media had its typical slobbering, Pavlovian response. Still does, despite a dramatic drop in the polls. “The Democratic representative hasn’t come up with a good rationale for challenging progressive Senator Ed Markey in Massachusetts,” The Atlantic said three weeks ago. “But with a name like his, it may not matter.” Really? Great-Uncle Ted’s run for president in 1980 couldn’t be derailed by serial drunkenness, womanizing,...

    New polling shows Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts opening up a lead over Democratic challenger Rep. Joe Kennedy III with less than a week to go until their Senate primary showdown in an increasingly bitter contest that’s grabbed national headlines. According to a Suffolk University poll released on Wednesday, Markey leads Kennedy 51%-41% among likely Massachusetts Democratic primary voters. A survey released hours earlier by the UMass Lowell Center for Public Opinion also indicated the senator with a small double-digit advantage over his challenger, who is the grandson of the late senator and U.S. Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy and...

    A legal advocacy group advised by Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor in the 1980s actively opposed conservative Robert H. Bork's nomination to the high court calling him a "threat" to the "civil rights of the Latino community." The Senate went on to reject President Reagan's nominee in 1987. The revelation is included in 350 pages of documents the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund delivered to the senators late Tuesday evening. Judge Sotomayor worked for PRLDEF in various capacities from 1980 until she became a federal judge in 1992, spending most of her time as a board member. The...
