Robert F. Kennedy Jr said of Fox News Friday, "It´s divided our country in a way that we haven´t been divided probably since the Civil War." This occurred during an online video interview with the Huffington Post (video follows with transcript and commentary): ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR: There’s two things happening. One is the influence of big money in politics, and the other is the right-wing control of the American media, particularly starting with Fox News. 95 percent of talk radio in our country is right-wing, and you need, according to Pew survey, and you, so a whole section of
Comments: How frustrating it must be not to be able to control everything with the writing of a check or the mere mention of your pedigree!
Have you noticed the abundance of civil war and slavery references by the left recently? Disgusting. Partisan and divisive politics by them. But as usual, they control society´s message and the average person thinks it is all the big-bad Republicans.
Uncle John and your dad wouldn´t even recognize the Democrat Party and the radical leftist ideology you support, you twit. It is the Democrat Party and the communist indoctrinated media that is ripping our country apart.
Another Kennedy removing all doubt that he is a fool. The dictator in chief is the divider and this one percenter is too stupid to realize he is ONE! Rich against poor Young against old Takers against makers Black against white Unions against business
Another stoned Kennedy.....I so wished they had used a little more birth control in that family, just when you think you have heard the last moronic comment from one of them another one crawls out. RFK, when left wing radio was on the air, no one listened to them....and other than morons no one reads the papers any longer or listens to the perverted, left wing MSM! But then you would not know that, busy with a dame, or some drink, or some drugs, RFK jr.??
I think I can say this here. "Go frack yourself, Bobby." If your family didn´t have the criminal element way back in its beginning to make money off bootleg booze, no one here, especially me, would know who you are, let alone care what you had to say. [I still don´t].

I think that this jackass is one of the most hateful people that I have ever seen. He is the typical leftise. If you don´t agree with him you are beneith contempt. What a wasted life he is. Attention women, Kennedy on the loose, run for your lives.
RFK Jr. might be happy living on a wind turbine island anchored in the Atlantic about 50 miles out, and in isolation. He should have a vegan food supply delivered once a year, courtesy of people who are grateful of his absence. All of his wisdom should be recorded, to be opened no sooner than one thousand years from the present.
This foully ignorant minute person is ignorant of the blazing reality that Civil War Democrats were the party of slavery, and that the Republicans were the party of Emancipation. This was a wholesome division. The present division will also be wholesome when the latter-day "Republicans", and, better, Americans, realize that we have become Obamaland, and rise up in righteous revolt!
A pathetic, whiny embarrassment to his father´s legacy.
Didn´t always agree with RFK to be sure, but they don´t make Democrats like him any more, and haven´t a long time. There´s the possible exception of Joe Lieberman who was forced out in the 2002(?) Leftist coup and subsequent purge of the Democratic Party. RFK and JFK would have been purged, pronto. Teddy of course fathered the horrendous 1965 immigration law and god fathered ObamaCare and is a saint among the current Leftists running the party. It´s hard to calculate which of those two Ted Kennedy efforts have had a worse effect on this great nation. So far, immigration is the worst, but stay tuned. /ramble
OK, junior - ever hear of MSNBC? How about Marilyn Monroe? You should know about the first. Your married father sure knew about the second as did your uncle. You are a bunch of swell guys, tremendously fit to lecture the rest of us.
Old man Kennedy was a bonafide crook and thug and yet this despicable Kennedy has the gall to open his pie hole. These commies rely on the continued stupidification of Americans. America will get the RULERS which it deserves for possessing the IQ of a carrot. And who will be left to turn it around when everyone has their hands out, and votes to confiscate someone else´s earnings? FOX and others of a similar ilk still promote the freedom to speak against collectivism. For now.
Don´t worry. This dipstick is bound to be in the news again and again, and probably not in a good way, but that won´t prevent the self-absorbed, bottled-water-drinking, Politically Correct, Xanax-disabled, beautiful people from fawning all over him like the lemmings that they are. Golly neds, I never knew it was possible for dog squeeze to have a pedigree...
Cory Booker must have been unavailable. Josh Romney, son of former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, said in a tweet on Friday that he saved four people after a car accident and included a photo of himself standing next to what appeared to be an overturned vehicle inside a house. "Was first on scene to big accident, see pic of car in the house. I lifted 4 people out to safety. All ok. Thankful.", the tweet read. Romney, who lives in Utah, told NBC News he was driving his family home from Thanksgiving dinner when the car sped by, went
We have a deal. After years of false starts, mutual recriminations and steadily escalating pressure, Iran has finally agreed to accept real limits on its nuclear program. In his statement Saturday night announcing the agreement, U.S. President Barack Obama called it an "important first step" and declared that diplomacy had "opened up a new path toward a world that is more secure." (snip) But we’re still a very long way from Tipperary on this one. And we should be careful about putting on the party hats and breaking out the champagne—at least for now, anyway. And here are five reasons why.
Nov. 22 falls on the Friday before Thanksgiving this year, just as it did 50 years ago. And that extraordinary day in 1963 began on the Hill in ways that would seem familiar to the congressional denizens of today. (Snip) As was the custom, then as now, the chore of acting as presiding officer had been parceled out to several of the freshmen with the lunchtime slot assigned to the youngest in the class, 31-year-old Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts. He was in the chair when his brother was killed. And from that instant, the scene at the Capitol unfolded
Before President Obama was elected, the United States was known as one nation under God — but the Obama Administration seems to think otherwise. Organizing For America published an email Sunday suggesting the greatest nation on the face of the Earth owes its allegiance to another deity. David Axelrod write that “we’ve made serious progress as a nation under President Obama.” You can read his edict in its entirety below. No wonder the Democratic National Committee voted to remove the Almighty from their party in 2012. They only have room for one God.
Second-term presidents in the past 30 years have had some pretty embarrassing news conferences, full of frank admissions of failure, submissive spasms of shame and groveling, grieving apologies. Bill Clinton had to admit that he actually did have sex with that woman, Miss Lewinsky; George W. Bush finally thought of something he might have done wrong; his dad had to explain all those new taxes after his unequivocal pledge; and even Ronald Reagan ate crow over the Iran-Contra affair. But there has never, ever, been a more pitiful presser than the one conducted last week by President Obama.
The continuing attention devoted to the blunders, incompetence, and lies surrounding the Obamacare rollout is much deserved. But we shouldn’t forget that the President’s health-care monstrosity is merely the latest and biggest of scores of government entitlement programs suffering from the same flawed progressive assumption––that government “experts” armed with coercive power alone can solve problems better left to the states, civil society, and the free market. In reality, such programs relentlessly metastasize, increasing as well fraud, waste, abuse, and costs. One such program is SNAP, the kinder and gentler name for what we used to call food stamps. Apparently the
While Barack Obama’s grotesque lie, “If you like your health care plan, you can keep it!” haunts millions of Americans who are learning first-hand that the exact opposite is true, The One, in concert with corrupt RINOS and Democrats (whom are automatically understood to be universally corrupt), is counting on another WHOPPER to codify his amnesty nightmare into federal law. With respect to amnesty, the equivalent Obama lie is, “Once we pass reform (AKA, Amnesty), we will secure the borders!) Translated: If you like American sovereignty, language, and culture you CAN KEEP IT——if you pass amnesty!
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
