Must-See TV: Scandalous:
Chappaquiddick Premieres Tonight

American Thinker, by Peter Barry Chowka

Original Article

Posted By:PageTurner, 12/2/2018 10:57:14 AM

Highly recommended is a new program on the Fox News channel tonight, Sunday, December 2 from 8-9 P.M. E.T./P.T. It´s the second season premiere of the occasional documentary series Scandalous. Season two, episode one of Scandalous: Chappaquiddick, "The Bridge," will be shown this evening, with three more hour-long episodes to follow on successive Sunday evenings in December. The subject of the four new in-depth programs is the 1969 scandal involving the late Sen. Edward M. (Ted) Kennedy (D-Mass.) that essentially short-circuited his seemingly inevitable path to the presidency. Not well remembered now,

Comments:
Sounds like a good one.

I hope the series is better than the movie Chappaquiddick.

Looking like a Kennedy, after this, might not be good for Beto.

We saw the movie. It was ok, but, it could have been a lot more hard-hitting than it was. But, my take away was that Kennedy let Mary Jo drown. There was some extra-marital baggage that Kennedy needed to eliminate.

So it took almost 50 yrs to bring it up? Maybe in 2070 they will start talking about the terrible Obama scandals.

When this happened I had a liberal friend tell me it was just an accident that could happen to anyone and she felt sorry for Teddy.

Sure..... I told her but remember he left her to die. That shut her up.

At this point, what difference does it make?

At least the real history behind what happened is being exposed/corrected. Maybe. It´s hard not to be skeptical these days.

It has taken 50 years for the liberal media to stop suppressing the sordid details of Ted Kennedy´s crimes in Chappquidick. So I forsee it´s taking as long to expose the truth about the Clintons´ and Obama´s dirty deeds. I may live to see the former but maybe not the latter. Too bad.

"Chappaquiddick Speaks" is a new book written by Bill Pinney. The accident did not happen the way it was described by Kennedy. The passenger side doors were heavily damaged (creased by colliding with cylinder shapes) and the safety glass broken to pieces. This book is worth a good read. It was impossible for Ted and Mary Jo to be in the car when it went off the bridge. Both would have been bruised, cut by the glass and possibly suffered broken bones. Again, read this book. Pinney is a native of the area and has meticulously researched the events.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi lived up to her "cut your head off and you won´t even know you´re bleeding" characterization from her own daughter in the upcoming border deal, and not just for Republicans. It´s not just that the badly needed funds for a border wall were slashed to a mere $1 billion. (As a means of comparison, the earlier California bullet train got $77 billion allotted for its construction, with an easy $3 billion of that from the feds). Actually, the DACA kids got nothing.

The unfitness of Rep. Ilhan Omar for the House Foreign Affairs Committee has already been brought up based on her persistent anti-Semitism, her strange habit of repeating Russian propaganda, and her apparent abuse of U.S. immigration law. Now a new and very big reason has come up: Her cringe-inducing ignorance of actual foreign affairs. In a hearing on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Omar got her big moment to show her foreign policy chops, and started in by misstating the actual name of the State Department´s grizzled old special envoy for Venezuela, the well-known Elliott Abrams,

There´s nothing quite like handing Democrats What They Want. So to accommodate them, wily old Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has scheduled a vote on freshman socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her sidekick Sen. Ed Markey´s much-vaunted "Green New Deal," just to help them out. But wait. The Senate lefties are not happy about it.

President Ronald Reagan once said, "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn´t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children´s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." Perhaps now, more than at any other time recently, these words must be heeded. The foundation of American values and freedom is under assault.

Democrats have always spoken with forked tongues on assorted #MeToo cases, calling for swift judgment on accused (and innocent) conservatives such as Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, while dragging their feet on allegations involving their own. John Conyers, Keith Ellison, Al Franken, Bob Menendez - they all have had their #MeToo issues, as does the Virginia clown show crew, yet somehow Democrats aren´t quite treated the way Republicans are. And it´s really obvious in the case of California Rep. Tony Cardenas, who´s been credibly accused of drugging and molesting a teenage girl in his care

In 1920 British writer H.G. Wells visited Russia and interviewed Vladimir Lenin in the Kremlin, where they discussed the future of socialist Russia. In the aftermath of his visit, Wells wrote an insightful book, Russia in the Shadows, in which he called Lenin “The Kremlin Dreamer.” One hundred years later a major American political party of Kremlin dreamers is recycling the familiar Marxist arguments against capitalism and pointedly spinning Lenin’s fairy tales here in the United States.

President Trump visited the Texas border city of El Paso to make a case for his border wall, and press pooh-poohing to the contrary, it was big. Real big. The press fell over itself to downplay claims about the actual crowd size, but 16,000 people, if the numbers were as low as that, is still an amazing number, respect-inducing numbers, particularly in a blue city like El Paso. If this trip was Trump´s kickoff to his 2020 presidential re-election run, the Democratic clown car of candidates getting all the press these days has something to worry about,

CARACAS, Venezuela — Since the eruption of protests against President Nicolás Maduro last month, Flor Blanco, a 57-year-old seamstress, has repeatedly clashed with her husband over a question at the core of the crisis here: Did socialism kill Venezuela? Blessed with the world’s largest oil reserves, this South American nation was once the region’s richest per capita. Twenty years after the launch of the late Hugo Chávez’s Bolivarian Revolution, it is now one of the poorest. Blanco’s husband, a loyalist of Maduro — Chavez’s anointed successor — still calls socialism society’s great equalizer

For years, Democrats have fallen over themselves to defend Latin American communist dictatorships. Who can forget Rep. Maxine Waters´s apology to the Castro regime for the U.S. on her pilgrimage to Cuba or Rep. Jim McGovern´s secret collaborations with Colombia´s Marxist FARC terrorists or New York mayor Bill de Blasio´s "help" to the Nicaraguan Sandinistas or Sen. Bernie Sanders´s open praise for Hugo Chávez´s Venezuela? And don´t forget Joe Kennedy´s Dial Joe-4-Oil, which was a gusher of propaganda praise for Venezuela´s oppressive socialist regime. They´ve always gotten away with it. Until now.

MIAMI — For 60 years, the lifeblood of Miami’s idiosyncratic politics has been Cuba, the communist government’s countless sins denounced in street protests, dissected on the spirited Spanish-language airwaves and condemned at campaign rallies under the unifying cry of “Viva Cuba Libre!” But the focus of this city’s freedom-loving fervor has recently moved further south. Venezuela, not Cuba, now dominates Miami’s political conversation. A television anchor not long ago ended a somber segment with a promise to keep praying for the troubled South American country.

Gallup put out a poll last week, finding that five million Latin Americans plan to cross into the U.S. this year alone. And the total number who plan to enter the U.S., either this year, or later, is 42 million. The U.S. admits a million legal immigrants each year from all countries. This new survey shows that at least four million of that five million are planning to enter illegally, most likely by crossing the border. That´s a human tide.

On Wednesday, May 10, 2017, my first full day on the job as acting director of the FBI, I sat down with senior staff involved in the Russia case—the investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and the Russian government. As the meeting began, my secretary relayed a message that the White House was calling. The president himself was on the line. I had spoken with him the night before, in the Oval Office, when he told me he had fired James Comey. A call like this was highly unusual. Presidents do not, typically, call FBI directors.

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

Washington — Millions of Americans are waiting for Robert Mueller to give them the final word on whether the Trump campaign conspired with the 2016 Russian election interference effort — and whether their president is under the influence of a foreign adversary. Millions of Americans may be sorely disappointed. Unless Mueller files a detailed indictment charging members of the Trump campaign with conspiring with Russia, the public may never learn the full scope of what Mueller and his team has found — including potentially scandalous behavior that doesn´t amount to a provable crime.
