    Edward M. Kennedy was romantically described as the last lion, but it might be more accurate to think of him as a river. Especially earlier in his long career, he could be tumultuous and overflow his banks, both politically and in his personal life. But mostly he was steady, forceful, and above all persistent. Particularly in the three decades after his failed 1980 presidential bid

    Never Forget: Mary Jo Kopechne drowned July 19, 1969 What happened: On this day (July 19) in 1969, Mary Jo Kopechne drowned in Sen. Ted Kennedy's (D., Mass.) car after the notorious philandering boozehound drove it off a bridge on Chappaquiddick island. What happened next: Nothing. Kennedy, the youngest brother of former president John F. Kennedy, fled the scene of the accident, which likely occurred sometime after midnight. He did not report it to police until 10 a.m. the following day. • The Democratic scion faced no meaningful consequences for his actions and would go on to serve four more...

    Elites have always gotten away with things you and I never could have. Two-tier systems of justice are the norm, not the exception in all societies. But some societies are much worse than others, and one of the reasons the West has been so successful compared to most places is that our system of justice has been on the whole reasonably fair, at least until recently. Hardly perfect, but overall most people most of the time have enough faith in the system that they retain trust. ...

    SNIP “I hate the Soviet Union,” he said. “I hate the Communist regime. I always hated Communism because it always turns into an autocratic situation like in China where they cut off your freedoms.” He then spoke about how he “used to love Republicans”. “I voted for many Republicans. I don’t see how I’ll ever get back to that,” Stern said. “They’ve just totally disappointed me and their support of Vladimir Putin, the praise they heap on him. Trump’s praise of Vladimir Putin. This guy’s a f****** animal. I wish he was dead like I wish Hitler was dead.” SNIP

    I got an email this week from a former bow-tied bum kisser at the Globe about a book he’s writing on Fat Boy — the late Sen. Ted Kennedy. “My editors have asked me, in this Me Too era, to make sure that I have done a thorough search for incidents in which Sen. Kennedy’s behavior caused injury or harm to women.” Wow. Talk about an open-ended order. The hagiographer, er biographer, mentioned that the usual incidents — Chappaquiddick, Palm Beach, La Brasserie — will “of course” rate chapters in his tome. Of course they will. “I am writing to...

    Liberals love to insist they're on the "right side of history," and their confidence crests in the liberal dominance among historians. Just as the liberal media dominate our evaluation of day-to-day developments, liberals count on their historians to dominate our evaluation of the decades behind us. It's not just historians but our taxpayer-funded storytellers, like the insufferable PBS documentarian Ken Burns. On the day before President-elect Joe Biden's inauguration, NPR's "Morning Edition" presented him as an American treasure with no partisan bias. So, skip over the propaganda film on Ted Kennedy he made for the 2008 Democratic National Convention, which...

    Parag Agrawal, who was appointed this week as Twitter's CEO, has joined at least a dozen other Indian-born techies in the corner offices of the world's most influential Silicon Valley companies. Microsoft's Satya Nadella, Alphabet's Sundar Pichai, and the top bosses of IBM, Adobe, Palo Alto Networks, VMWare and Vimeo are all of Indian descent. Indian-origin people account for just about 1% of the US population and 6% of Silicon Valley's workforce - and yet are disproportionately represented in the top brass. Why? "No other nation in the world 'trains' so many citizens in such a gladiatorial manner as India...
  • Wake Up, Progressives: You're Lucky To Have Kyrsten Sinema

    Brian Murray knows just how fierce an opponent Arizona's Sen. Kyrsten Sinema can be. The Republican strategist saw his candidate lose to Democrat Sinema in their 2012 race for the House. Calling the experience "unpleasant," Murray admits his candidate, Vernon Parker, was flawed, but "flawed candidates win all of the time. Kyrsten, however, was an absolute machine." Sinema, along with fellow centrist Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, has recently become the epicenter of American politics largely because she insists on siding with the interests of her constituents instead of the demands of her party. Over the past few...

    They sure talk a good game, don’t they? Be thankful Democrats don’t sell used cars, lest you have a yard full of lemons. No, they sell something worse than junk, they sell lies, and they do it really, really well. But don’t think for a second that they don’t know exactly what they’re doing, and never believe, not even for a moment, that they actually give a damn about what they claim to care deeply about. They love children. How do I know this? They won’t shut up about them. Not their own kids, yours. Joe Biden doesn’t talk that...

    From his first day in office, Joe Biden committed to putting freedom pioneer Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill, and some time around 2028, it might happen. In her perilous role as a scout and spy for the U.S. Army during the Civil War, and as an abolitionist and humanitarian, she earned it. She risked re-enslavement at least 19 times in helping others to escape. Tubman would replace Andrew Jackson, a favorite target of those who rail against his slave ownership – perhaps totaling up to 150 people – while ignoring the context. Nearly everyone in Jackson’s environment was racist...

    Many of the highest-ranking members of the Biden administration came from the same shadowy firm. It is a relatively new name among revolving-door power brokers in Washington D.C., which makes it all the more surprising. Founded in 2017, WestExec describes itself as a “diverse group of senior national security professionals with the most recent experience at the highest levels of the U.S. government. With deep knowledge and networks in the fields of defense, foreign policy, intelligence, cybersecurity, international economics, and strategic communications, our team has worked together around the White House Situation Room table, deliberating and deciding our nation’s foreign...

    When the U.S. Congress passed—and President Lyndon B. Johnson signed into law—the Immigration and Naturalization Act of 1965, the move was largely seen as symbolic."The bill will not flood our cities with immigrants,” lead supporter Sen. Edward “Ted” Kennedy (D-Mass.) told the Senate during debate. “It will not upset the ethnic mix of our society. It will not relax the standards of admission. It will not cause American workers to lose their jobs.”That sentiment was echoed by Johnson, who, upon signing the act on October 3, 1965, said the bill would not be revolutionary: “It does not affect the lives...

    The news about John Kerry is startling. The former U.S. senator from Massachusetts and secretary of state, now President Joe Biden’s climate czar, is accused of leaking sensitive—possibly classified—information to an enemy power, Iran. The accusation surfaced in a news story about the supposedly off-the-record comments by Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s foreign minister, made in March to an Iranian journalist, who recorded the conversation in a three-hour audio file. Zarif’s words were leaked to a London-based Iranian publication called Iran International, and then the New York Times ran with the story on April 25. While offering a candid commentary about...

    If you’re counting on Joe Manchin to save the Republic… – Well, you might want to think again. For all his bluster and fake media coverage about being some sort of “moderate” Democrat, West Virginia Senator Joe Manchin has always been nothing but a reliable, down-the-line leftwinger who operates in what I like to call the Lloyd Bentsen mode of being a senator. You might remember Lloyd Bentsen, the long-time Texas senator who ran for the vice presidency in 1988 as Michael Dukakis’s running mate. During his 22 years in the senate from 1971 through 1993, Bentsen was the quintessential...

A nationwide effort by Democrats is underway in at least 16 states to overturn restrictions on mail-in voting and third-party ballot harvesting. States where suits have been filed include the swing states of Minnesota, Pennsylvania, and Florida. The effort is being backed by the National Redistricting Foundation, a Democratic group headed by the Obama administration’s Attorney General Eric Holder. The suits appear to be funded by Priorities USA, a Democratic super PAC. A Wall Street Journal headline from April read,...
