A Chappaquiddick Reckoning at Last?
PowerLine, by Steve Hayward

Original Article

Posted By:Judy W., 9/13/2017 6:27:52 AM

I paid no attention to the fact that Hollywood was producing a biopic of Ted Kennedy’s famous “accident” at Chappaquiddick in 1969, and would have assumed that it was a typical gauzy pro-Kennedy puff piece if I had known. But Variety magazine, the main trade journal of Hollywood, offers a review that not only says that the forthcoming movie Chappaquiddick is suitably harsh on Teddy, but that he—and the Kennedy reputation—deserve it: The film says that what happened at Chappaquiddick was even worse than we think. Kopechne’s body was found in a position that implied that she was struggling to keep

Comments:
Wow. This is stunning -- many people have known the truth, but mostly just conservatives. The Kennedys, or Ted at least, are publicly exposed and humiliated. Just think, in 50 years this may happen to the Obamas.

I take comfort in the thought that Teddy is roasting in some obscure corner of hell right now...

Decades way too late. The Party today does not care one whit about any of that. In those days, the Rats at least tried to hide their hatred for our country. Today, none of that old Kennedy crap means anything. There is no shame to hide from in this new Democrat Hell March.

I´m old enough to remember that most of this was known at the time but....much like Obama´s LFB, we were all told to shut up, go away and that only ´Right-Wing Nuts´ talked about this subject because all the nice people were on board with the wonderful Kennedys and their beautiful, patriotic, intelligent family.

The Media still crams the ´Popular´ meme down your throats all day...every day.

#1 I believe you´re right. I don´t think God was swayed by Ted´s death bed letter to the Pope explaining all the good he had done. Self righteousness isn´t a virtue in the Catholic Church but how would Ted know all he did was pay his indulgences. The destruction this "Lion of Senate" did to America is far beyond what obama has done.

Would have been nice if the author would have mentioned all of the aid the leftwing, useless media gave to that lying Kennedy...and still do.

Still no comment from Mary Jo Kopechne.

Kennedy said (about driving to the bridge) that he mistakenly took a turn to right instead of taking a sharp turn to the left (old memory). Life magasine showed the intersection...it was a standard paved line road he was followiwing, with a curve to the left. The turn required braking to a near full stop, driving over the elevated lip on the road and an exaggerated turn to the right.
He lied then...all that has followed is tainted.

Ten or so years ago I saw a TV documentary on Chappaquiddick that claimed, from the Coroner´s office, that Mary Jo could have been alive as long as 4 hours. Never saw it again. I remember Ted´s interview, with his head in a neck brace, he wasn´t believable and at that time my family were Democrats-but not stupid!

I urge everyone to read "Senatorial Privilege" This book was written years ago and is still in print. It is a stunning account about what happened and indeed reveals the cowardice of Teddy Kennedy. There is a diagram of Mary Jo in the car reaching for the last air pocket. It was estimated that she lived for 45 minutes while Teddy did nothing and finally swam to his hotel. He calmly greeted people in the morning before reporting the accident.

Old Ted was unrepentant in life, and very likely unrepentant in death. If so, God has sent him away. In the end, there is always a reckoning.

More like the ´Liar of the Senate´. Ted Kennedy was a big fat bloated coward murdering liar. With all the disasters that befell upon the Kennedy´s Ted was their last hold out of the old guard and had to be protected for the dynasty to continue. Ted was probably the dumbest of the bunch and the oldest Joe not too smart for flying a plane packed full of bombs on a stupid secret mission. I was never obsessed with the ´Kennedy Klan´ but my mother was and history be damned in her eyes.
I was 20 at the time and just out of the Army and it didn´t take me long to figure out what liberals and democrats were all about. I hadn´t voted yet but I can say to this day I was never a democrat or voted for one. Ted Kennedy is the personification along with the Clintons of what the party is about but democrats/progressives/communist are just more embolden today than in Kennedy´s time.

I have to wonder if Ted mentioned Chappaquiddick in his letter to Pope Benedict. Having said that, I doubt Ted was capable of writing that letter or even comprehending that it was written two months before his death.

#11, I recall reading (perhaps in the famous Reader´s Digest article that helped derail his presidential train) that Teddy never actually reported the accident to the police.

He was at his motel, sitting on the porch after breakfast, when a policeman arrived to inform him that his car had been found in the water, at which time Teddy the Swimmer replied that, oh, yes, he was just going to report that.

IIRC, Pope JPII refused Splash´s deathbed request for a special dispensation. It´s one of the many reasons that I still adore JPII and miss him.

I never paid much attention to Splash but his later most odious and reprehensible act may have been his treatment of Justice Clarence Thomas at his nomination hearings. I believe it was Orrin Hatch who told Kennedy to shut up, which was the high point of those awful hearings.

The dig at PDT in the quoted Variety article is a bunch of hooey. Incompetent people don´t become billionaires. But I guess that kind of snark is to be expected from Hollyweird.

OP: Unfortunately public exposure and humiliation don´t seem to affect the Kennedys in some parts of the country, e.g., Massachusetts and New York. Otherwise the dumb, redheaded, pisher cousin would not have been elected to the U.S. Congress and the stuttering, drug-addicted son of Robert would not draw an audience to hector us about the dangers of climate change and childhood immunizations.

The Jew who wrote Trump´s speech

"In thirty years of experience with the United Nations, I never heard a braver or clearer speech," Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Tuesday regarding US President Donald Trump's maiden speech at the United Nations General Assembly.
According to The New York Times, the person who wrote the speech is Stephen Miller, a Jew. The first part of Trump's speech discussed the UN's founding, immediately following the Second World War. At the time, Trump told the Assembly, the US helped Europe overcome the war's devastation by creating and implementing the "Marshall Plan,"

As I put it: If this is a war, there´s no agreement on what we´re up against: Terrorism? Islamic terrorism? Islamic extremism? Islam? Whatever it is, a president who, on the campaign trail, mocked his predecessor´s inability to use the words "radical Islam" himself eschewed all mention of the I-word today. September 11th 2001 was supposedly "the day everything changed" - if by "everything changed"

It’s tempting to mock Richard Florida: the hipster urbanist with the hipster name, the new day’s heir to yesterday’s Jane Jacobs. In 2002, he wrote a book that just everyone with an ounce of hipness bought and read—a book about how hipsters were saving the nation’s cities. And now, 15 years older and not quite as hip anymore, he’s written a follow-up that says, in essence, whoops. But the temptation to mock Florida for his change of heart should be resisted. Over the past decade, his writing has shown a growing worry about the condition of urban America, a growing unease

President Donald Trump has called for fans to boycott the NFL if players don´t stop ´disrespecting´ the US by kneeling during the national anthem - as his rant continues to draw backlash from high profile athletes. Trump had earlier denounced the protests by NFL players and rescinded a White House invitation for NBA champion Stephen Curry in a two day rant that targeted top professional athletes and brought swift condemnation from league executives and star players alike on Saturday.

CARSON, Calif. — It’s time for NFL owners to go beyond issuing statements and to make a statement: bring back quarterback Colin Kaepernick. On Sunday, from an undisclosed location, Kaepernick retweeted on his Twitter account several images of NFL players wearing T-shirts that read #IMWITHKAP. NFL owners need to show they are as well. They finally can dispel theories that Kaepernick has been blackballed for refusing to stand for the national anthem last season, or, fearing a blacklash from fans, that they simply lack the courage to give him another chance.

Months before, their “Saturday Night Fever” soundtrack, featuring songs written and/or performed by the Australian trio, had won a Grammy for album of the year.
