Ted Kennedy: Lion or Jackal?
“Ahnd-uh – when I got baack, Mary Jo and the cah weah gone!”
On April 6, Chappaquiddick, a movie detailing the events involving Senator Ted Kennedy on Martha’s Vineyard in July 1969, was released. That incident demonstrated the depths to which the Kennedys were willing to go to salvage the political career of the last of the Kennedy sons. In subsequent years, the actions of Ted Kennedy that night were forgiven by the Democrats, as were subsequent actions as noted below.
The movie is based on a book, Senatorial Privilege: The Chappaquiddick Coverup, by Leo J. Damore, who committed suicide in 1995.
Well, that is the official version, at least. The Kennedy family exerted pressure to block the making and release of the current movie. Similar pressure was reportedly put on Mr. Damore, which may have added to the issues that resulted in his death. Continue reading
“Oceania” was a nation described in George Orwell’s “1984” as being comprised of Britain (called “Airstrip One,”) and the United States. There were two other superpowers, namely Eurasia and Eastasia. Other lands rich in resources were contested over, such as Africa and assumingly South America…lands never kept by any of three Super-states for any significant period. The “flux” in conquests was exactly what the MIC (Military Industrial Complex) of our time would have termed “necessary” to justify large expenditures: War as the focal purpose, rather than the exceptional event.

Recently Dr. Grazie Pozo Christie, a policy advisor for the Catholic Association, wrote about New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s 2019 budget “Realizing the Promise of Progressive Government”. Dr. Christie is troubled and takes great exception to the Governors radical policy initiatives on abortion as stated in the budget.
Dr. Christie begins his critique with this statement, “The promise of this style of government seems to be to fulfill every liberal dream about abortion in one fell swoop, or at least the dreams that haven’t already come true in a state that has the highest rate of abortion in the United States”.

The two major parties in Washington, D.C., have been playing “good cop, bad cop” with the American people for decades, and the charade is still working. The vast majority of voters seem totally oblivious to the fact that both parties are little more than puppets for the “man behind the curtain” (to borrow a line from “The Wizard Of Oz”). After all is said and done, both parties are destroying constitutional government and liberty in America. They merely approach their duplicity from different directions. But both parties are taking the country down the same slippery slope to serfdom.
Democrats are the out-front bad guys on domestic/social issues such as abortion, gay rights, and gun control. Unfortunately, these are about the only issues conservative Christians pay much attention to. So, to them, Democrats are big bad sinners and Republicans are spotless saints. But what Christians and most conservatives never seem to notice is that when it comes to the advancement of the Warfare State and the promotion of the Police State, Republicans are far and away the baddest of the bad. So, depending on what the “man behind the curtain” wants to push at the time, he knows he has both parties in his pocket to do his bidding. Continue reading
Blaming Republicans for starving kids is not working in 2018
Democrats in the House and Senate thought they would play the old government-shutdown card that has worked for them every time it has been played since 1995 when Republicans were blamed.
But 2018 is different. It is backfiring.
It’s no longer Republicans starving children and forcing old people to eat dog food. This time, Democrats are being blamed for refusing to fund the U.S. military as a means of aiding illegal aliens.
That’s the way it is being successfully explained by the Trump administration – and it’s resonating. Continue reading
Court orders government to do so for all driver’s licenses issued
California will take the next step in blurring the lines between citizens and non-citizens beginning April Fool’s Day when the state complies with a court order to begin automatically registering to vote all those who are granted driver’s licenses. Continue reading
… in the hole!
At just 1:30 this afternoon today I received a notification from various publications, one of which which I immediately forwarded to Granny. it stated, “A fire broke out Wednesday at property owned by Bill and Hillary Clinton in Chappaqua, N.Y..” My response to Granny was, “Yeah – sure it did. What kind of records and computers are being destroyed,” to which she stated, “As many as they were able to hide in there.”
In response to the following posted column, at 6:48 this evening, the following came from Granny; “Is Anyone surprised? Hillary knows her TIME is coming to an end so she is getting rid of everything she can – but there are copies in other places that WILL be uncovered at some point. She didn’t anticipate the Weiner emails – more will surface. The TRAIL of Hillary bodies is still traveling. Her day of judgement is one she won’t be able to avoid – God knows ALL she has done and she WILL pay the price for all her evil deeds in life.”
Fire Dept: “Room Full Of Servers, Hard Drives Destroyed In Clinton House Fire”
… and They’re Forcing Us to Pay For It
Both Congress and the Department of Homeland Security have never justified the biometric scanners at airports that could cost Americans $1 billion in 2018.
As TSA agents continue to prove their incompetence in the “War on Terror,” the Department of Homeland Security is now allocating $1 billion in taxpayer funding to create a facial recognition program that will illegally scan Americans’ faces. Continue reading
1 more for growing Big List of related crimes being swept under rug
Morgan Evenson was walking home in downtown Minneapolis on the evening of Dec. 13 when a black man got out of his car, chased her down, tackled her and repeatedly thrust a 3-4-inch blade into her flailing body.
The 26-year-old computer-store clerk frantically fought back, kicking, scratching and screaming for help.
At some point, neighbors heard her screams and came to her aid. Her attacker – described as a Somali man in his early 20s, about 5-foot-7 with a slight build and wearing grey stone-washed jeans – fled. Continue reading
The so-called party of the people, the Democratic Party as a whole in the U.S. Senate and the U.S. House refused to vote for tax cuts that will benefit the majority of the country. It appears that the Democratic Party is all about itself and not about the people who put the politicians in office, it is Party First, Party Always, and that’s all that counts. Continue reading
The mystery whether John McCain will be present during next week’s historic tax bill vote is over: according to CBS, the Arizona Senator will not be on hand for the final vote on the Republican tax bill, expected early this week, and instead is returning to Arizona after spending several days in a Maryland hospital recovering from side effects from chemotherapy treatment for brain cancer. As CBS furter notes, McCain left Washington Sunday and is heading back to his home state to spend the holidays with his family. It is unclear when McCain might return to Washington, especially amid rumors that the senator’s health has taken a turn for the worse. Continue reading
The nation’s first African-American president was a disaster for black wealth.
The Obama presidency was a disaster for middle-class wealth in the United States. Between 2007 and 2016, the average wealth of the bottom 99 percent dropped by $4,500. Over the same period, the average wealth of the top 1 percent rose by $4.9 million.
This drop hit the housing wealth of African Americans particularly hard. Outside of home equity, black wealth recovered its 2007 level by 2016. But average black home equity was still $16,700 lower.
Much of this decline, we will argue, can be laid at the feet of President Obama. His housing policies led directly to millions of families losing their homes. What’s more, Obama had the power — money, legislative tools, and legal leverage — to sharply ameliorate the foreclosure crisis.
He chose not to use it. Continue reading
A Long Island woman is accused of laundering bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies and wiring the money overseas to help the Islamic State group, according to federal prosecutors.
Zoobia Shahnaz, a 27-year-old Pakistani-born resident of Brentwood, was being held without bail following her Thursday arraignment on charges of bank fraud, conspiracy to commit money laundering and money laundering, prosecutors said.
The former lab technician worked in Manhattan and had no known criminal history, according to prosecutors who said that beginning in March she fraudulently obtained more than $85,000 through a bank loan and credit cards to buy bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies online. Continue reading
Chamath Palihapitiya is one of the men who was on the ground floor of the Facebook phenomenon and for a while he worked as a high ranking executive within the company.
However, Palihapitiya has come to believe that social media is not a force for good in our world but instead it is “ripping apart the social fabric of how society works.” Continue reading
What about the Democrats? If they are going to point fingers, what about their morality? What about their treatment of women? What about their perversions and debauchery?
John Conyers, a Democrat member of the House of Representatives, has been caught up in the plague of sexual impropriety scandals infesting the liberal left ever since they decided to open Pandora’s Box with their false accusations of Alabama’s Judge Roy Moore. Conyers has been irreverent in the face of the accusations, suggesting that he is somehow immune to such things, and above the law, because of his position in government.
Conyers’ colleague, Jim Clyburn, was asked about the accusations against Conyers, while walking to an elevator with Congressional Black Caucus chairman Cedric Richmond (D-LA). The question posed was, “Other men in other industries have faced similar accusations … and gotten out of the way, resigned, stepped down, far faster than he has, right … Harvey Weinstein, Charlie Rose, Matt Lauer?” Continue reading
The current sex crimes dragnet sweeping across the country, pulling in celebrities, media millionaires, and politicians, has yet to reel in a high-profile professor from the hallowed halls of academia…
Will Bill Ayers be the first?
In a 2006 Frontpagemag article entitled “Remembering a Sixties Terrorist,” a woman named Donna Ron recounted what she described as “the defining event of my life.”
As a sophomore at the University of Michigan in 1965, Ron was caught up in the antiwar movement when she met and dated Ayers. Two months after meeting Ayers, Ron alleges that he locked her in his apartment and told her she couldn’t leave until she had sex with his roommate and his brother. Continue reading
The verdict in the trial of career criminal and illegal Mexican alien Jose Ines Garcia Zarate may not have been a miscarriage of justice; under our system of jurisprudence, prosecutors often overreach and jury nullification, whether by juror selection or choice of venue, is perfectly legal. There is not some sort of instant replay system whereby a flagrant miscall can be overturned by consulting the videotape. When the jury votes for acquittal, that’s it, and we wouldn’t want it any other way.
The knee-jerk reaction to it on both sides, therefore, is irrelevant. Conservatives, in general, were outraged that, legally, the man who pulled the trigger on the gun that fired the bullet that killed Kate Steinle got off with only a felony possession of a firearm conviction. Leftists — including the attorney who effectively won the case — saw it as vindication, and criticized the reaction on the right as, you guessed it, an assault on the legal system. Continue reading
