    Joseph Kennedy II dumped $2 million from his old campaign coffers into the super PAC backing his son’s bid to unseat U.S. Sen. Edward Markey, FEC filings show, confirming the speculation that became a major point of contention in the final weeks of the primary. The elder Kennedy, who served as a congressman from 1987 to 1999, made two contributions of $1 million each to the New Leadership PAC aiding U.S. Rep. Joseph Kennedy III, one on Aug. 5 and the other on Aug. 19, SEC records show. The money came as polls began to show the race slipping away...
  • America’s First Family Is Going To Be Put Out Of Business

    Is this really how the Kennedy dynasty in Massachusetts ends? After a century of political treachery, chicanery and duplicity, not to mention scandal and depravity to the max, what was once called America’s First Family is going to be put out of business by … Ed Markey? Ed Markey? The guy who’s been an invisible man in Congress since Gerald Ford was president? A lightweight’s lightweight, a glad-handing political weathervane with a comb over who in 2017 congratulated “the Boston Patriots” and who seems to think the Twin Drive In is still open in Medford. Ed Markey, the Man That...
  • Kennedy Family 'Matriarch' Ethel Kennedy 'Loves Che Guevara, Named Her Dog Che'

    “Her (Ethel Kennedy’s) family says she’s been a fan of Guevara for years — and makes no apology about it. “My mom loves Che Guevara. Her dog is named Che,” her son, Robert Kennedy Jr., told The Post.” (NY Post 4/15.) In fact, your humble servant was on this story before the Johnny-come-lately New York Post, right after alert columnist/blogger Sarah Gonzales on April 13th tweeted a picture of Mariah Cuomo and her grandmother Ethel Kennedy with a pic of Che Guevara peeping in the background. “Why does Andrew Cuomo’s daughter have a framed photograph of communist murderer he Guevara...

    Authorities continued searching Friday for two members of the Kennedy family who disappeared in the Chesapeake Bay after they had set out in a canoe to retrieve a ball in the water — a mission that family said “turned from rescue to recovery.” Maeve Kennedy Townsend McKean, 40, and her 8-year-old son Gideon Joseph Kennedy McKean went missing near Annapolis on Thursday evening while the family had gathered at a waterfront house owned by McKean’s mother, family and authorities said.
  • Jackie Kennedy’s fairy-tale wedding was a nightmare for her African American dress designer

    The 1953 wedding of Jacqueline Bouvier and then-Sen. John F. Kennedy was so perfect it is still being talked about more than 65 years later. As recently as 2017, gossip website The List was still calling it “the most beautiful wedding ever.” It was a fairy tale worthy of the legendary couple who would preside over Camelot. But for Ann Lowe, who designed the bridal gown, it was a nightmare. First, the wedding dress was destroyed 10 days before the ceremony. Then the 24-year-old bride, who did not really like the gown in the first place, snubbed her. Asked who...
  • Markey aide apologizes for sharing ‘despicable’ message about Kennedy family

    The primary matchup between Senator Edward J. Markey and Representative Joseph P. Kennedy III is still hypothetical, but it’s already getting messy. An apparent social media blunder by Markey’s top campaign hand has angered Kennedy, his team, and supporters — just as the 38-year-old Newton Democrat is weighing a challenge to the 73-year-old Markey. The controversy started late Monday night when a senior adviser to Markey’s campaign retweeted a nasty post: “@EdMarkey, co-author of the green new deal, is a great Senator. @joekennedy should focus on his family’s considerable mental health issues.” Drama on Twitter ensued: A Kennedy supporter called...

    This Thursday marks what would have been the 100th birthday of Rosemary Kennedy, the eldest daughter of Joseph P. Kennedy and his wife, Rose. For many years, the story of JFK’s sister, who had an undiagnosed mental disability and was lobotomized at age 23, was shrouded in mystery. A vivacious young woman with a sweet disposition, Rosemary’s life was dramatically altered when her father decided to have her undergo a pre-frontal lobotomy in November 1941, a procedure that left her with the mental capacities of a toddler and requiring round-the-clock care

  • Kennedy Lied, People Died and were Enslaved—and the Media Covered it Up (the Sequel)

    Well, so much for that “agonizing reappraisal” (allowing truth) by the media/Hollywood complex on the Kennedys. Naturally we were asking too much. Apparently the movie Chappaquiddick, which forthrightly—and thus astoundingly! -- showcases a Kennedy’s perfidy, was a flash in the pan.Recently here at Townhall your humble servant speculated the movie might open a tiny crack for historic truth about Kennedy treachery to seep through. So I quickly slipped in the truth on the Kennedy treachery at the Bay of Pigs.Alas! Now we’re back in traditional media/Hollywood Kennedy hagiography mode. I refer to this week’s Netflix’s release of “Bobby Kennedy for...

    Conservatives’ expectations for honest and fair movies coming out of Hollywood are understandably low.  For decades now we have been brow-beaten and lectured by clueless celebrities on everything from saving the Spotted Owl to gun control – the latest flavor of the moment.But a breath of fresh air is blowing in from the left coast. The new movie ‘Chappaquiddick,’ from Entertainment Studios and Apex Entertainment, is a brutally honest recounting of one of America’s greatest public tragedies: the death of Mary Jo Kopechne in a car owned and driven by Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.)Producer Mark Ciardi has a winner, and...

    Full title: Searing Big Screen “Chappaquiddick” Thriller: Mary Jo Kopechne as First #MeToo Victim of Kennedy Family Money, Power and Corruption Text of excerpt: I 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 Studios Motion Pictures company–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...

    HYANNIS PORT, Mass. — They’re America’s white-trash blue bloods. The Kennedy clan has been famous over the years for limitless political ambition, immense wealth, excruciating tragedy — and seemingly constant scandal. Their storied family tale began with an immigrant Irish family-done-very good and rose all the way to a US presidency, only to go from Camelot to trailer park.
  • Why Stop at Reassessing Confederate Monuments? What About the Kennedy Brothers?

    08/24/2017 9:07:08 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 22 replies ^ | August 24, 2017 | Larry Elder
    As we rewrite history and remove Confederate monuments deemed "offensive" when viewed through the prism of contemporary standards of morality, reasonable people ask: Where does one draw the line? The left, for example, reveres the Kennedy brothers, John, Robert and Edward. But if evaluated by today's standards of social justice, would these left-wing icons hold up? In Sen. Ted Kennedy's case, how does the monument-removing left feel about the kiss Kennedy blew Gov. George Wallace a mere 10 years after Wallace delivered what became perhaps that era's most infamous defense of segregation? At Wallace's request, Kennedy spoke in Alabama at...

    Kerry’s second wife’s first husband’s trust fund owns mansions in Nantucket, Beacon Hill, Georgetown, Fox Chapel PA and Ketchum (not Ketchup) ID. Together, they are assessed for at least $35 million, and are empty most of the year – perfect locations in which to settle the wretched refuse of your teeming shores, to quote the inscription on the Statue of Liberty. Yet Secretary Kerry refuses to roll out the welcome mat. In fact, Kerry has never been particularly charitable even to his fellow citizens, even before his second marriage, when he was sometimes reduced to sleeping on his ex-brother-in-law’s couch....

    Since Robert F. Kennedy’s assassination on June 6, 1968, his widow, Ethel, has been his torchbearer. Unlike her late sister-in-law, Jackie, she never remarried, never sought a path or identity that was hers alone. She held herself up as the martyr, the good Catholic widow left to raise 11 children alone, the empress of Hickory Hill. She was content to be the other Kennedy widow, the domesticated antidote to the glamorous, globe-trotting Jackie. Today, Ethel Kennedy is 87, the clan’s de facto matriarch — a dubious position given the neglect shown toward her own children. In his new book, “RFK...

    Geraldo Rivera sees a double standard at work in ABC News’ decision to stand by George Stephanopoulos after the network’s chief anchor apologized for failing to publicly disclose $75,000 in donations to the Clinton Foundation over the last three years. In a Facebook post Friday morning, Rivera claimed he was fired by ABC News in 1985 for making a $200 political donation and wondered why Stephanopoulos isn’t getting the same treatment. “In 1985, after fifteen great years, I was fired by ABC News,” Rivera wrote. “The official reason for my firing was a non-disclosed $200 donation to a family friend...

    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...
