In 1990, when liberal journalists still had some sense of obligation to the truth, Michael Kelly wrote the following for GQ: As [Carla] Gaviglio enters the room, the six-foot-two, 225-plus-pound [Sen. Ted] Kennedy grabs the five-foot-three, 103-pound waitress and throws her on the table. She lands on her back, scattering crystal, plates and cutlery and the lit candles. Several glasses and a crystal candlestick are broken. Kennedy then picks her up from the table and throws her on [Sen. Chris] Dodd, who is sprawled in a chair. (snip) Here is what McCaskill had to say about Kennedy´s behavior upon his death
Comments: many examples of hypocrisy from Dem women
In 1972, I watched Dead Ted up close - he was commencement speaker at my university. It amazed me to see lots of women of all ages push their way to have their photo taken with Dead Ted. And it was just three years after he killed Mary Jo Kopechne.
Never was there a better example of democRAT hypocrisy and their lecherous Nepotism with the Press than was embodied by Tedward Kennedy whom the Media allowed to campaign and win with his pants down around his ankles! Aaaaannnnnnnnndd the stupidity of the Liberal voter continued for decades...
These filthy hypocrites in the Senate have to know that if the idiot Republicans vote to have Roy Moore dragged through the ethics committee (what a joke, eh?), he and his people will drag their icons of lust from both the present and the past right through with him. My best guess is, they will reluctantly ignore any try at censuring or even (highly unlikely) expelling Moore. Their cred is not all that solid right now and 2018 is coming at them like a CSX freight train. That is, assuming the Republcan´ts are determined to stay in power- which is really starting to look less and less likely.
Dear "MeToo!" gals and "MeToo!" Enemedia cheerleaders (hot or not):
You want us to respect your motives and trust your intentions with "MeToo!"?? Here´s how, and it´s quick and easy:
Denounce and excommunicate serial harasser/rapist Bill Clinton, denounce his enabling fake wife, and most of all, unambiguously denounce your sick, beyond-hypocritical support of her illegitimate candidacy. Admit that you didn´t give a flying fig about sexual harassment or rape as long as she had a chance to take the White House, making a rapist First Man (swoon!). Above all - admit you would do it again.
I love Cashill´s use of the English. The term moral squalor is superior. Truly appalling is the cadre of female Senators - Mikulski, McCaskill and Murray - all lauding TK´s ´fighting´ for the ´little guy´. When Ted was dead - I´m sure there was a sigh of relief from the women who had been abused by him - he couldn´t hurt them anymore.
The Kennedy brothers were guilty of sexual abuse many times over. Ask that woman who worked for them in Washington what they did to her in the White House pool. The Press kept it all covered up. Jack even had a Mafia girlfriend who was also the girlfriend of a Mafia boss. She would carry messages back and forth from the WH to the Mafia. The Press kept it all covered up. They have been covering up for Democrats for years without being exposed themselves. The tables are turning.
Great article, but I strongly disagree with the commonly used "drowned". Ms. Kopechne suffocated when the air bubble in the submerged car became depleted of oxygen by her breathing. Why is that so important? Because drowning implies a quick death; nothing could have saved her. As it was, timely response by the scumbucket teddy would have saved her life. But his career was SO much more important. So she died an terrifying, agonizing and prolonged death. While that evil, animated chunk of lard lived happily ever after.
Many commentators have automatically stated that since Mary Jo Kopechne perished by drowning in a submerged car. Cashill notes correctly that Mary Jo died of asphyxiation in an air pocket on the floor of the upside down car. I read an account of her autopsy which revealed that her lungs contained bubbles of air, not water. If any reasonable attempt had been made to save her, she would have been saved. Instead, the honorless Kennedy tried to save his political career, which he did, more or less.
His manslaughter on Mary Jo at Chappaquiddick probably saved America from a Teddy Kennedy presidency; we got Carter instead. I remember Roger Mudd´s rather simple questions to Kennedy, questions about why he was running, which were answered by something like "Uhhh, duh. I er ah could make a good president...."
Teddy Kennedy was neither a moral nor an intellectual colossus; he was a fat pygmy instead, regularly out of control or off his head. Female senators, especially, lionizing this priapic reprobate is sickening.
The only bad thing about this great article is that it will only be read by us the msm won´t touch this gigantic hypocrisy. I remember that phony wearing a neck brace afterward. To this day I don´t understand why nothing was heard from the Kopechne family. I would have hounded that SOB until the day I died if he did that to one of my family. The "Lion of the Senate" was nothing more than a lecherous drunk given a pass by the msm because he was one of them! Good grief how the Democrats bring out the worst in me.
FTA: "For sheer moral squalor, it was hard to top Chappaquiddick. This 1969 incident is well enough known; in brief, Kennedy hosted a drunken party at an isolated beach house whose guests included exactly six married men and six single women."
Cashill is simply the best. I wish there were more articles from him. That description of ´moral squalor´ is so perfect and vivid. It perfectly describes the Democrats and what they wallow in every day.
I had heard about that ´waitress sandwich´ but had never know the details until this article. That is just sickening and appalling. It is more than outrageous and infuriating that the Democrats are always the moral arbiters when they so vile and hypocritical. When Democrats condemn Roy Moore the response should immediately be, no one ever drowned in Roy Moore´s car. I would love to see the Democrat´s response.
In the last month or two of Splash’s life, knowing he was going to die, he sent a letter to Pope JPII asking for a special dispensation - absolution for his life of sin and a direct journey to heaven. The Pope blew him off.
As a practicing Catholic convert, I have always loved JPII and was fortunate enough to receive communion from him on New Years Day 2001 in St. Peter’s Square. One of the big reasons that I love him is his refusal to save Kennedy’s butt. He knew an insincere and fraudulent “Catholic” when he saw one.
The mask is off the clown. It´s show time and the liberal women on the left will have to make a choice stand by accusations of sexual misconduct or accept it as ´no big deal´. Their antics will be met with Ted Kennedy and Bill Clinton did it ´so what´? I like the line that no woman ever suffocated in Roy Moore´s car. Sir Galahad Ted should be mentioned if the senate goes that route against Moore. To understand a real liberal woman if one were raped by Ted or Bill they would brag about it like they were special. I think young Monica liked Bill he didn´t like her. Monica today probably thinks she was foolish in her youth.
This isn´t about Roy Moore, Weinstein, Franken, Conyers, Ted Kennedy, ad infinitum ad nauseum. This whole purification from sex nonsense is one of the many present and future foils used to remove Trump from the Oval Office and replace him with the oligarchy power structure. That´s all this is. It´s kabuki.
Look, here is what WILL happen in either 2019, 2021 or 2023 if the House goes Marxist; Trump will be impeached by the House within a few days of swear-ins and will be removed from office a few weeks later by the Senate, even if the Senate has a GOP majority. THAT is the milestone on the way back to the Deep State´s oligarchy.
Instead of Mitch and Schumer´s smug grins overseeing Trump´s total destruction had he lost to Hillary, demonstrating to every non-Deep State candidate in the future their fate for simply running against them, the two will flash their smug grins at you and I, the voters, demonstrating what they will do to anyone we elect who is not part of the Deep State. THAT is the silent coup. The "Trump is a rapist, Moore is a rapist, Trump and Putin stole the election from Hillary, Trump caused the wildfires, etc" are kabuki foils for the ultimate objective; power and control.
He/she who is without sin cast the first stone. I say let´s see what happens tomorrow. If Roy Moore does win, let him have his day in court. Let these women prove he did them wrong. As far as I have read, only one of them says he actually accosted her (the alleged 14 year old). If he did, let her prove it. If he´s guilty, out he goes. But, if this is a set-up to force him out (i.e. Herman Cain), then the issues will dissolve after he´s elected.
The same should be done for all those accused; a day in court. That´s our system of justice. Let´s put Bill the bitter-pill up there in court with the 4+ women who accused him of sexual crimes (including rape). If he´s found guilty, former president or not, he should be jailed, too. And his wife, for conspiracy to slander and being willing accomplice to his crimes.
Its not hypocrisy from the leftist perspective. Leftists are being true and consistent with their intended "ends" and will always adjust their means to the expediency of the moment. Right now it serves them to be on a crusade against sexual predators. They never concerned themselves before since it served their needs to look the other way. Now they hope that this is the way to take down Trump since Russia is failing. As a matter of fact their willingness to take casualties is a sign they know the Russia thing won´t work.
If their next charismatic dynamic loyal leftist becomes the star to ride and he has a few issues, suddenly it won´t matter and they´ll denounce the unenlightened days of the witch hunts for predators.
Alabamians vote tomorrow. The whole nation trusts their vision to see through the unsubstantiated accustations, hypocrisy, lies, insults, political bullying, and other Alinsky tactics and crap. It will not be an easy vote, with all the flak that has been raised, but hopefully they will turn out and put the future of the country ahead of all of it, and let God deal with the truth about Roy Moore.
Ted Kennedy is just one example where feminists were forced to lie about his character in order to attain their political ends. Far more relevant examples are BarackHussein and Hillary Corleone. The lying about their character still hasn´t stopped - and not a single MeToo-er has, to my knowledge, even apologized for supporting the rape-enabler for president. The MeToo movement is not what it seems, we can be sure of that.
The Kennedys were filthy, disgusting men. Another example of the women losing. Maybe Mary Jo was stupid to go with Ted, but I´m sure she didn´t want to die. As for Moore, I wish we had a better candidate.
Based on its stock price and the competition among cities to subsidize its planned new “second headquarters,” a lot of people seem to think that Amazon does everything right. But based on this report by Hayley Peterson in Business Insider, the halo is slipping from its perch atop Jeff Bezos’s head. Whole Foods is facing a crush of food shortages in stores that´s leading to empty shelves, furious customers, and frustrated employees. (snip) Actually, the OTS system – introduced just before the acquisition of Whole Foods by Amazon – is a variant of the “Just-in-time” (JIT) inventory management system pioneered by
Social Security is, barring an immediate and massive overhaul in how benefits are paid to the back-end of the Baby Boomer generation and beyond, on its deathbed. There can be no mistaking that fact. Veronique de Rugy explains at Reason: Since 2010, [Social Security] has been running at a cash-flow deficit – meaning that the Social Security payroll taxes the government collects aren´t enough to cover the benefits it´s obliged to pay out. (snip) It could be argued that our government hastened, or at the very least exacerbated, this cash-flow deficit with its "payroll tax holiday," a bipartisan effort instituted in late
I must say I paid more attention this week to the continued unfolding of the Obama-Clinton "Russian collusion" poppycock, which seems to be coming to a certain closure with the investigative results made public and the consequent removal and prosecution of a number of high-ranking former and present officials. In the meantime, Chuck Schumer, whose surname (per ancestry.com) is "a nickname from Middle Low German ´good-for-nothing,´ ´vagabond,´" revealed how aptly he is named. In fact, the Democrats´ government shutdown gimmickry reminds me of nothing so much as the scene in the movie Animal House where Eric "Otter" Stratton offers up
Some learned and accomplished folks, who deservedly command a great deal of respect and admiration, view the Trump presidency in an entirely different light from what millions of Americans see. To these sage and wizened critics, the president´s persona outweighs his achievements; his flaws overwhelm his strengths and, by extension, hamstring his ability to move an agenda forward. I believe that those harboring an anti-Trump mindset would do well to consider that the election of Trump was never about the man – it was not the "cult of personality" that the major media and the establishment Republicans portrayed it to be, but
Al Jazeera, my #1 information source for unbiased and accurate news (just kidding), nonetheless had an interesting story about black people who left America and moved to Africa because of...you guessed it: racism! They have come from the big cities of San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. Thousands of them. And many refuse to return. A new wave of African[-]Americans is escaping the incessant racism and prejudice in the United States. From Senegal and Ghana to [t]he Gambia, communities are emerging in defiance of conventional wisdom that Africa is a continent everyone is trying to leave. I think it´s great that black Americans
Conservative hearts are aflutter, thanks to a memo that has been made available to members of the House of Representatives (if they go to secure room and read it). According to several members, there is finally hope of documenting the cabal that appears to have deceived the FISA Court with the Steele dossier to obtain a warrant to spy on the Trump campaign, and then launched special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate the bogus “collusion” charges, morphing into the Lavrentiy Beria strategy of “Show me the man and I’ll find you the crime.” According to some members who have seen
Among the few givens in the unfolding drama of alleged Russia-Trump collusion is that former MI6 intelligence officer Christopher Steele wrote the Donald Trump-Russia dossier, alternately known as the "Steele Dossier." This is the notorious document that purports to detail "Republican candidate Donald Trump´s activities in Russia and compromising relationship with the Kremlin." The above quote is from the subhead of the document, titled "Company Intelligence Report 2016/080." Yet the same subhead hints at a disturbing pattern evident throughout the document: it appears to be written by someone whose native language is something other than English. The phrase should read, "Republican candidate Donald
The locally oriented website CWBChicago provides a valuable instructional video its readers in fashionable, upscale Chicago neighborhoods who (quite realistically) fear the ongoing predation by gangs running rampant elsewhere in the city, making it the murder capital of America. A compelling security camera video released by the Chicago Police Department depicts a gang driving into Wicker Park – an expensive area with great shopping attracting many pedestrians (and a Hollywood film named after it) – and carrying out an armed robbery on a pedestrian. The video is provided as a way for residents to minimize their danger: One of the best ways
On May 17, 2017, former FBI director Robert Mueller was appointed as special counsel to investigate the supposed Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. (snip) American Thinker interviewed Jim Kallstrom, the former assistant director in charge of the FBI office in New York and a twenty-eight-year veteran of that agency, on his views. The political attitude of some in the FBI led to an investigation started by then-FBI director James Comey on March 20, 2017. Kallstrom says, "I personally don´t understand why there is a special counsel at all, because the statute is very clear that there needs to be
Three weeks after college, I flew to Senegal, West Africa, to run a community center in a rural town. Life was placid, with no danger, except to your health. That danger was considerable, because it was, in the words of the Peace Corps doctor, "a fecalized environment." In plain English: s--- is everywhere. (snip) Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that a few decades later, liberals would be pushing the lie that Western civilization is no better than a third-world country. Or would teach two generations of our kids that loving your own culture and wanting to preserve
The Democrats and their media allies did everything they could to defeat Trump´s tax cuts and reforms. They continually lied to the public in a bid to make them believe that less than half of the taxpayers would actually get cuts and that the bill was meant to benefit only big, rich corporations. Therefore, we got all sorts of articles, obviously fed to journalists by left-wing think-tanks and Democratic politicos, claiming that the tax cuts aren´t good or aren´t performing as promised. So, two weeks into a ten-year program, we are now hearing whining that all the promises of the broad-based
An excellent op-ed in the LA Times today by Kerry Jackson on why California - with its liberal politics and generous welfare system - is the "poverty capital of America." (snip) From 1992 to 2015, state and local governments spent nearly $1 trillion to help the poor. The state, with 12% of the American population, is home today to about one in three of the nation’s welfare recipients. Jackson then reaches the not so astonishing conclusion: "The generous spending, then, has not only failed to decrease poverty; it actually seems to have made it worse." One of the big reasons for this
1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis ripped President Trump´s new tax law and offered optimism for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. Dukakis, a former governor of the Bay State during the so-called economic "Massachusetts Miracle," said Republicans have lost their way when it comes to supporting fiscal responsibility. He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit. (Snip) "We just passed a tax bill, which I think is a piece of garbage," Dukakis, who lost his presidential bid to then-Vice President George Bush, said. "Look at these companies, though, that are
It´s no secret that Mitt Romney is, in all likelihood, going to run for a Senate seat in Utah. What´s less clear, however, is why the man who was the 2012 Republican presidential nominee and is now retired and occupying an elder-statesman role in a party torn into warring factions would want to serve as a junior senator. Once elected, Romney would find himself embroiled in day-to-day congressional fights and less free to voice his criticisms of the White House, while losing some of the deference he´s been shown by members of his own party. But listen to any number of Republicans and
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of New York pinned the government shutdown on President Donald Trump, saying it has become "next to impossible" to negotiate with the White House.In a press availability, Schumer said he and Trump have been close to a deal to fund the government at least once.But, he said the "hard right" in the Republican Party later convinces Trump not to strike a deal with him."[Trump] won´t take yes for an answer," Schumer said.

The Daily Caller journalist Chuck Ross has some extremely interesting information released today surrounding former top FBI Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok and DOJ/FBI liaison attorney Lisa Page which includes a disclosure by top FBI officials that text messages between Strzok and Page have gone missing. (Snip) According to information relayed to Senator Ron Johnson, the period of time the FBI has “lost” is from December 14th, 2016 to May 17th, 2017, the exact day that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was assigned to lead the Russia collusion probe. As CTH has previously outlined the same “small group” inside the DOJ and FBI,
Question: Do you think Donald Trump spends more time thinking about Hillary Clinton than Hillary Clinton spends thinking about Donald Trump? Sure does seem like it. The other day, President Trump was discussing Russia at a press conference with the prime minister of Norway, when he suddenly announced that Clinton “was not for a strong military and Hillary, my opponent, was for windmills, and she was for other types of energy that don’t have the same capacities at this moment certainly.” Yeah, it didn’t make any sense. But he really can’t seem to get past her. Recently while promoting tax
Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) questioned President Donald Trump’s new campaign ad saying Democrats “will be complicit in every murder committed by illegal immigrants” if they continued the shutdown. Ryan said, “They are certainly not helping us keep the government open. They are certainly not helping us get to a solution on immigration. When you shut down the government you stop negotiating on immigration reform. They’re complicity with not getting things done.” He added, “I’m not going to comment. I just saw that. I don’t know if that’s necessarily productive. It’s no
Immigrants entering the United States illegally through the southern border are quietly being relocated to different parts of the country on commercial flights, high-ranking Homeland Security officials told Judicial Watch this week. In the last few days alone, groups of illegal aliens boarded planes at airports in Texas and Arizona accompanied by a taxpayer-funded government escort in civilian clothes to avoid drawing attention. The first flight originated at Valley International Airport in Harlingen, Texas and was bound for Minneapolis. (Snip) The illegal aliens wear red HHS wrist bands and receive “the gold glove treatment,” according to a veteran federal official,
According to Representative Dave Joyce (R-OH14) the House Intelligence Committee will hold a vote on the release of the four-page Nunes memo that reveals systemic corruption within the DOJ and FBI; including the unlawful use of FISA-702(16)(17) data searches which were part of an elaborate DOJ-FBI surveillance program on the political campaign of Donald Trump. (Tweet) Additionally, Chad Pergram reported that Chairman Devin Nunes met with Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte to discuss the best process to release the memo. There are generally two ways it could be done, the HPSCI vote is the most likely.As more people have become aware

In the absence of El Nino, the swelter of 2017 was unprecedented.
There’s a ghost haunting Elizabeth Warren as she ramps up for a possible 2020 presidential bid and a reelection campaign in Massachusetts this year: her enduring and undocumented claims of Native American ancestry. Warren says now, as she has from the first days of her public life, that she based her assertions on family lore, on her reasonable trust in what she was told about her ancestry as a child. “I know who I am,” she said in a recent interview with the Globe. But that self-awareness may not be enough, as her political ambitions blossom.
Comic book readers are apparently not fans of progressive politics—a fact no more evident in Marvel’s decision to cancel every single one of its comics that has been nominated by the LGBTQ advocacy group, GLAAD. In December, the publisher announced its decision to cancel many of its comics, citing poor sales. LGBTQ, feminist, and social justice-themed comics involving stories that revolved around Black Lives Matter, illegal immigration, and LGBTQ issues were among those to end up on the chopping block.
Adam Schiff, reputedly a champion leaker from the House Intelligence Committee when it came to Russiagate material, suddenly thinks Ignorance is Bliss when it comes to the FISA warrant used to spy on the Trump campaign. Appearing on CNN, he tried to justify keep the 4 page memo that reportedly exposes the individuals who acted as part of a cabal to undermine the Trump campaign with help from NSA spying, and then pushed the “Russia collusion” conspiracy theory as part of the “insurance policy.” Americans are too ignorant, you see. Do you think Democrats are starting to panic? (Video) Rush
