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.

What´s a French leader without a rich, buttery serving of appeasement? Here´s a France24 headline: Macron raises minimum wage to appease Yellow Vest protesters That´s what he´s offering, following the big buildup for his national address following at least two weekends of angry populist riots across the country. Oh, there´s a bit of economic tinkering on other things, a tax hike taken back here, a tax-hike delay there, a request that companies (instead of the government) pay workers more cash via bonuses

In the annals of the idiocy of France´s ruling elites, how is this for a doozy? Via ABC News: Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said Monday the government could delay some payroll taxes, but expressed resistance to restoring the wealth tax or lowering taxes for retirees, among protesters´ demands. He stressed that the measures should focus on helping the working classes. "We are ready to make any gesture" that works, he said on RTL radio.

Is abortion ´the safest procedure?´ The Planned Parenthood propaganda has dined out for years on its claim that legal abortions are the preferable alternative to ´back-alley´ and ´coat-hanger´ abortions. There´s not a Democratic Party convention since 1973 where this hasn´t been shouted to the rafters. Apparently it´s not even true. Planned Parenthood is fighting with every tooth and nail it has to keep abortion reporting requirements ´safe´ from the public eye, and it´s prompting questions about just what they have to hide.

The New York Police Department is planning to introduce a new drone program in New York City and we should all be enthusiastic about this development. The NYPD has assured the city council that the drones will not be used for surveillance and police work, but I think that is exactly what they should be used for. In a city that sees hundreds of murders a year, it makes sense that all of the technology at the police department’s disposal is put to good use. After all, if the drug dealers and gang bangers

Did Beto O´Rourke, the vacuous Democratic prettyboy who almost beat Ted Cruz in the Texas Senate race give the latter a scare? Look, Ted Cruz is sporting a beard, and boy does it look good: Now that is stylin.´ Here are some more views: Talk about beating Beto at his own game. The latter came rather uncomfortably close to beating Cruz in the last midterm, 50.9%-48.3%, in the solid red state of Texas. O´Rourke didn´t do that based on his ideas, given that those are basically socialist ones, but on his Kennedyesque

If you believe, as I do, that the U.N.´s climate agenda is really about empowering unaccountable bureaucrats to divide up the wealth of rich countries, then this information, via Andrew Bolt, is revealing: It´s a feeding frenzy at the UN climate conference. There´s the excuse for taxpayer-paid travel, of course, and the excuse to extort huge donations from the guilty rich: An analysis of delegates by Carbon Brief found Guinea topped the list with 406 delegates, down 86 from last time.

Here is a Polish joke our conservative Polish-American friends should love. A two week gathering of diplomats and climate ´experts´ on man-made global warming started in Katowice, Poland this week. The purpose of the meetings is to strengthen the Paris Climate Accord to stem purported climate damage, which the environmentalists claim, is caused by burning fossil fuel.

MeToo loudmouth and Bay Area Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Kamala Harris of California has gotten herself into yet another scrap, this one claiming she knew nothing about a $400,000 payoff for a sexual harassment case brought on by one of her top staffers. How very ironic, given how she stuck it to spotless Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh over sex harassment phony claims during his confirmation hearings and tried to make herself the figurehead for being sterling tough against sex harassment. The hypocrisy is thick. According to Fox News: A senior adviser to U.S. Sen.

Kamala Harris lost a key aide yesterday, but may have more problems retaining her credibility. Larry Wallace worked for Harris during her time as California’s attorney general as well as in her Senate office as a senior advisor. Between those two jobs, his assistant filed a complaint over sexual harassment and retaliation for Wallace’s actions during the transition. The state of California quietly paid $400,000 to settle the lawsuit, but it didn’t stay quiet permanently.

California looks like a lost cause for Republicans, given how Democrats clinched the midterm with a series of new laws. Maybe no big deal, given that California has been a solid blue state for something like 20 years. But are Americans aware of the potential for California vote-rigging to come to their states, making them so blue no conservative will ever be able to win an election?

SAN DIEGO – A Honduran woman affiliated with a caravan of Central American migrants has given birth on U.S. soil shortly after entering the country illegally. Customs and Border Protection said Wednesday that agents arrested the woman Nov. 26 after she entered the country illegally near Imperial Beach, California, across the border from Tijuana, Mexico. The woman was eight months pregnant and was taken to a hospital after complaining of abdominal pain. She and her family were released from custody on Sunday, pending the outcomes of their immigration cases.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren has the core of her 2020 team in place if she runs for president. She has the seed money — there’s $12.5 million ready to go, left from her recent Senate run — and a massive email list she’s amassed over years, boosted by a $3.3 million investment in digital infrastructure and advertising in the last election alone. Her aides have been quietly shopping for presidential campaign headquarters space in the Boston area in recent weeks, according to a source with knowledge of the move. All that’s left is for her to give the green light.

President Donald Trump, future House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer erupted in an on-camera fight in the Oval Office over border wall funding on Tuesday. The president argued that funding the wall was a “national emergency” and proposed $5 billion in funding. Schumer refused, insisting that he would only provide just $1.6 billion in border security funds. In response, Trump said he would shut down the government and take responsibility for it if they failed to include additional wall funding.

If Tuesday’s instantly famous Oval Office meeting is a harbinger of things to come, it’s going to be a long two years for “Chuck and Nancy.” Presidents can be intimidating, and Trump had home court advantage during Tuesday’s meeting. However, Chuck Schumer seemed especially outmatched by a very forceful Donald Trump. As Bill Kristol (no Trump apologist) put it: “[B]ased on what I saw of their respective performances in that Oval Office meeting today, I don’t understand why it’s Nancy Pelosi who’s facing a leadership challenge and Chuck Schumer who isn’t.” The mainstream media will focus
