News The Pamphleteers ‘Missed’

    The Daily Caller [Google this name] reported yesterday [08/18] that Arne Duncan, Obama’s Secretary of Education, will speak at Al Sharpton’s August 28 rally in Washington D.C., seen by some as a counter-protest to Glenn Beck’s march on the same day.
    Sharpton was quoted in a blackvoicenews.com story asking black people nationwide to attend his rally, which, by extension, he says casts doubt on Beck’s message.  Duncan’s presence there will certainly aid in that effort. Sharpton claims education is this century’s civil rights issue. Does that fact alone explain Duncan’s presence?

The U.S. Department of Education’s spokesperson hung up on The Daily Caller Wednesday when seeking clarification regarding the Secretary of Education Arne Duncan’s planned speech at an Aug. 28 protest march that the Rev. Al Sharpton and his National Action Network (NAN) are holding to counter Fox News commentator Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” rally…

Hamilton hung up the phone on TheDC when contacted for further comment, refusing to answer actual questions, including whether Duncan believes the Tea Party is racist or if he believes Beck is trying to “hijack” the American dream, or comment any further on Duncan’s planned participation in the rally…

A Sign The Pamphleteers Missed

 
 

Fascists Continue To Re-write History

Edward “Ted” (Phatt) Kennedy

….this time it’s Edward “Ted” (Phatt) Kennedy and the goings on surrounding ‘The Chappaquiddick Incident;’ you remember that… where Mary Jo Kopechne lost her life due to Phatt’s complete incompetence and depraved indifference to human life….. Yea, that time!  Here’s what really happened-complete with the official opinions:

    During the evening of July 18, 1969, Phatt Kennedy, Mary Jo Kopeche and many others attended a party at ‘Lawrence Cottage’ on Chappaquiddick Island which reunited “the boiler-room girls;” six girls–including Kopechne–who had worked on Robert Kennedy’s 1968 Presidential campaign.  Phatt Kennedy was also competing in the Edgartown Yacht Club Regatta on the neighboring island of Martha’s Vineyard.  Phatt and Ms Kopechne left the party together at approximately 11:15PM, 07/18/69, ostensibly to drop Ms Kopechne at her hotel.  Phatt got the keys to his mother’s Oldsmobile sedan from his chauffeur–John Crimmins–which leads one to believe this outing was nothing more than another Kennedy “bop ‘n’ drop,” sexual encounter.  If she had not expected to return to the party, why did Ms Kopechne leave her purse and hotel key there??
Dike Bridge (with Guardrails-POST 1969)

    In the many official reports and pamphleteer accounts of the death, Phatt Kennedy took a wrong turn onto Dike Road and at the approach to the Dike Bridge, applied his brakes, went over the side of the bridge–the vehicle landing upside-down in several feet of water.  Kennedy said that he was able to swim from the car; Ms Kopechne was not.  Kennedy also said that he called her name several times from the shore; swam down to the car “7-8 times” but was unable to rescue her.
    After the crash, Phatt Kennedy returned to the party.  On that return, he passed FIVE houses with WORKING TELEPHONES!!  Throughout the remaining early-morning hours, Phatt pissed away any possible Kopechne rescue by:

  1. Casually talking with the participants upon his return to the party.
  2. Swimming the 500 ft channel back to Edgartown [when there were several vehicles at the party site that could have driven him to the nearest police station {Did he REALLY swim the channel fully dressed??}]
  3. Changing his clothes and taking a nap in his hotel room.
  4. At 7:30AM, 07/19, Phatt Kennedy was back at the Yacht Club, chatting with the winner of the previous day’s race.
  5. At 8:30AM, 07/19, the fat bastard FINALLY GOT AROUND to reporting the accident and murder to the police in Edgartown.

Dike Bridge-Vehicle recovery,1969

The police attempted their own unsuccessful rescue upon arriving at the accident scene.  The sheriff then called for vehicle-recovery equipment and a rescue diver.  The diver had this to say about the accident:

“It looked as if she were holding herself up to get a last breath of air. It was a consciously assumed position. … She didn’t drown. She died of suffocation in her own air void. It took her at least three or four hours to die. I could have had her out of that car twenty-five minutes after I got the call. But he [Ted Kennedy] didn’t call.”

— diver John Farrar, Inquest into the Death of Mary Jo Kopechne, Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Edgartown District Court.

Phatt, with his political connections, was ONLY CHARGED with–and pled guilty to–leaving the scene of an accident causing injury. He received a suspended sentence.
    A ‘secret’ inquest was ordered by the Massachusetts Superior Judicial Court.  The inquest found:

  1. “Kopechne and Kennedy did not intend to drive to the ferry slip and his turn onto Dike Road had been intentional“.
  2. “A speed of twenty miles per hour as Kennedy testified to operating the car as large as his Oldsmobile would be at least negligent and possibly reckless.”
  3. “For some reason not apparent from [Kennedy]’s testimony, he failed to exercise due care as he approached the bridge.”
  4. “There is probable cause to believe that Edward M. Kennedy operated his motor vehicle negligently … and that such operation appears to have contributed to the death of Mary Jo Kopechne.”
  5. Under Massachusetts law Boyle, having found “probable cause” that Kennedy had committed a crime, could have issued a warrant for his arrest, but he did not do so.[36] District Attorney Dinis chose not to pursue Kennedy for manslaughter, despite Judge Boyle’s conclusions.

Sometime after all the hub-bub surrounding Ms Kopechne’s death; Phatt Kennedy–personally–bought her parents’ silence with a one-time payment of $90,904, plus a one-time payment of $50,000 from his insurance company.

Washington Whispers:
Ted Kennedy an Innocent Chappaquiddick Victim
By P.J. Gladnick (Bio Archive)
Mon, 08/30/2010 – 20:11 ET

This is one story that U.S. News /World Report’s Washington Whispers might want to keep to a low whisper or risk even more ridicule than what they are already receiving. Paul Bedard, writing in Washington Whispers, quotes Kennedy’s biographer and former girlfriend who claim that Ted was really an innocent victim of the Chappaquiddick accident. Here is Kennedy biographer Burton Hersh making the case for Kennedy as merely a lousy driver:

Now, a year after Kennedy died, his lifelong biographer Burton Hersh, armed with fresh interviews with Kennedy’s mistress at the time, tells Whispers that the whole July 1969 episode should have been handled as a simple crash, leaving the senator’s legacy untainted. “It was a car accident,” he says. “Ted was a terrible driver. He never paid much attention to where he was going.”

In any event, loyal lifelong biographer Hersh continues to play a sympathetic note on his violin:  Darn that mighty Ted Kennedy moral compass. That is what got him into so much trouble. Oddly enough, despite his laughable defense of Kennedy, Hersh admits that his type of woman is a…bimbo:

“He took a tremendous blow on the head,” says Hersh. In interviews following the crash, Kennedy displayed confusion and amnesia, he says.
Wasn’t Ted married to Joan Kennedy at the time of the accident? No matter. Perhaps his biographer figures it is better to show that Kennedy was unfaithful rather then culpable in Mary Jo Kopechne’s death.

“If the thing had been handled properly, the first thing they would have done is put him in a hospital. Then they would have said he was a victim of an auto accident and didn’t know what he was doing and couldn’t be held responsible for anything that happened really after that, which would have been a fair explanation,” says author-journalist Hersh, who knew Kennedy since they were classmates at Harvard. “But instead, he felt terribly guilty about the whole thing … tried to take responsibility and … just confused the issue.”   As for Kennedy being interested in the straight-laced Kopechne, Hersh says that was highly unlikely. “She wasn’t Ted’s kind of babe. She was a long way from being a bimbo.”

My ‘take’ on the truth:  Phatt Kennedy actually killed TWO PEOPLE in this whole fiasco!!  Mary Jo, when he failed to do all he could in her rescue AND the unborn child his wife was pregnant with, and subsequently miscarried!  We can thank Ms Kopechne for one thing, though:  The “Chappaquiddick Incident” created an atmosphere where Phatt could never be elected president!!!

Til Nex’Time….
