BOSTON (Reuters) â U.S. Senator Edward Kennedy, a towering figure in the Democratic Party who took the helm of one of America's most fabled political families after two older brothers were assassinated, has died, his family said. He was 77.
"Edward M. Kennedy, the husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle we loved so deeply, died late Tuesday night at home in Hyannis Port (Massachusetts)," the Kennedy family said in a statement.
One of the most influential and longest-serving senators in U.S. history -- a liberal standard-bearer who was also known as a consummate congressional dealmaker -- Kennedy had been battling brain cancer, which was diagnosed in May 2008.
"We've lost the irreplaceable center of our family and joyous light in our lives, but the inspiration of his faith, optimism, and perseverance will live on in our hearts forever," the family statement said.
Dennis Prager wrote: [ q.v. also Ted Kennedy on the Rocks ) ] ... It is quite likely that Ted Kennedy came to believe in the positions that he took. But I also suspect that he found espousing those positions invaluable to his self-image and to his public image: âLook at what a moral man I am after all.â And liberal positions were all that mattered to the left and to the liberal media that largely ignored such lecherous behavior as the âwaitress sandwichâ he made in a Washington, D.C., restaurant with another prominent liberal, former Sen. Chris Dodd.
excerpt from the Prager article.
Too often I might have given the idea that I'm a modern liberal. No, I'm much more a late 19th century Progressive or even a Progressive Republican through the 1920's and 30's, but anyway, to re-establish my Independent credentials I give you this attack on modern Liberals. Conservatives will particularly like to read the Prager article which was a commentary in WND this year.
Glad to see Tony, you don't think the Texas Sen. isn't American

What is with you anyway? Why are you still questioning that Edward Moore Kennedy was born in 1932? Kennedy's birth certificate which is registered in the State Of Massachusettes states that Edward Moore Kennedy was born in 1932 which means that Kennedy was 77 years old when he passed away. 1932+77=2009. Ergo, Kennedy was 77 years old and not 78 years old like you claim. And why do you state Rome's calendar? Do you believe that the calendar that is currently used is in error?
"Rothschild's Choice documents the astonishing rise of young, half blood "Prince" Of Jerusalem, a Communist adept named Barack Obama who won Rothschilds' favor--and was rewarded for his slavish devotion to their sinister Agenda.
Here are the revelations that dissolve the mystery of Obama's meteoric, virtually unheralded rise to global prominence and his elevation to the highest seat of superpower government--the White House.
Chosen by hidden superiors, we discover that President Barack Obama is heir to a terrible Master Plan conceived long ago and now being lethally implemented. Barack Obama has become the ultimate instrument in a dark plot to deconstruct and "murder" America...
The Rothschilds, above everything else, are Zionist Jews. The hidden cabal ruled by Rothschild always make sure a Zionist politician--be he Democrat or Republican--is sworn in as President of the world's greatest superpower. The last U.S. president to violate this cardinal rule was Richard M. Nixon, whose spirited rebellion against America's Rothschild Jewish faction was short lived and tragic in its demise..."--Texe Marrs

Dear Readers & Moderators Of Sermonaudio: When I Previously Stated "...I PERSONALLY BELIEVE THAT JFK GENUINELY GOT SAVED & ASSASSINATED BY THE "JESUITS" OF ROME !";
I Meant To Convey That Although Billy Graham Is A 33rd-Degreed Freemason Lodge Member; That It Did NOT In ANY Way Keep Or Hinder CHRIST JESUS From Spiritually SAVING JFK (When JFK Prayed THE SINNERS PRAYER With Graham For Salvation).
When I Stated "...JFK GENUINELY GOT SAVED & ASSASSINATED BY THE "JESUITS" OF ROME !"; I Specifically Meant That U.S. President John F. Kennedy Was Deliberately & Wickedly ASSASSINATED By The "Jesuits" Of Rome: NOT ONLY BECAUSE HE BECAME A TRUE "BORN-AGAIN" CHRISTIAN; BUT BECAUSE HE "PUT ROME TO SHAME" [& HIS OWN "PROFESSED" RELIGION] BY DECLARING & FULFILLING HIS WORD(S): THAT HE WOULD OBEY THE U.S. CONSTITUTION & U.S. CIVIL-LAW ABOVE THE SATANIC-VATICANIST & ROMAN "CATHOLIC" CULTIC CHURCH-STATE / STATE-CHURCH "CANON-LAW(S)" !
When I Stated "JFK GENUINELY GOT SAVED & ASSASSINATED BY THE "JESUITS" OF ROME !"; I Was NOT Saying That The "Jesuits" Genuinely "SAVED" JFK !
Becaue Of Limited Space I Coupled TWO-2 FACTS:
#1.JFK GENUINELY GOT SAVED BY CHRIST JESUS !
#2.JFK GENUINELY GOT ASSASSINATED BY THE "JESUITS": VIA VATICAN STOOGES IN THE CIA, FBI, THE MAFIA, & ETC !
Dear Readers & Moderators Of This Sermonaudio Website:
Last Week, As I Was Riding The Chicago #66 Bus Going West--Guess Who Got On The Bus And Sat Right Next To Me ?
It Was "Doc" Tony Novick's Widow !
She Turned To Me And Said: "I Know You ! -- How Are You Doing ?
We Exchanged A Few Words & She Got Off On Clark St. Where The LAWSON Y.M.C.A. Is Located; As She's Lived There Since "Doc" Passed Away.
In The '50s, The GREAT U.S. AMERICAN HISTORIC Nondenominational, Fundamentalist, Judeo-Chrisian Biblical-Literalist, Dispenastionalist, OPEN PLYMOUTH BRETHREN Evangelist & Pastor Of Chicago's Moody Memorial Church, DR. HARRY IRONSIDE, Also Lived At The LAWSON Y.M.C.A. !
*DR. IRONSIDE WAS INDEED A EUNICH FOR CHRIST'S KINGDOM !
Now, The Reason Why I Shared With You The Account Of My Visit With "Doc"; Was To Tell The Whole World That There Indeed ARE DEATH BED CONVERSIONS.
BUT THEY ARE FAR IN BETWEEN & FEW !
TED KENNEDY MAY HAVE HAD ONE--BUT I PERSONALLY DOUBT IT--AS A TRUE CHRISTIAN HAS NOT COME FOWARD TO MAKE IT KNOWN TO THE WORLD.
*IT'S REPORTED JFK PRAYED THE SINNERS PRAYER OF SALVATION WITH BILLY GRAHAM IN THE EARLY '60s. IN SPIKE OF 33rd-DEGREE MASON BILLY GRAHAM; I PERSONALLY BELIEVE THAT JFK GENUINELY GOT SAVED & ASSASSINATED BY THE "JESUITS" OF ROME !
Did Kennedy Genuinely Receive The Second Birth [NOT The UnBiblical Pagan-Egyptian Ritual Of Infant/Baby-Water-"Sprinkling" Of The Satanic-Vatican]; That Is, According To The Authorized Holy Bible-Scriptures As Recorded John 3:1-16 ?
He MAY HAVE Before His Horrible & Painful Death By Brain Cancer.
My Former Campaign Treasurer, Mr. Seymour Anthony Novick Or "Doc" Tony Novick--As He Was Known To Many In Chicago--ALSO Died Of Brain Cancer.
"Doc" Nocick Was Jewish & Married A Mexican Roman "Catholic" Woman.
As "Doc" Layed In The Hospital, I Shared With Him The Scriptures Of John 3:1-16. I Told Him I Was Jewish Too--Through My Maternal Grandmother's Mexican-"Sephardic"-Jewish Family Of Guadalajara, Mexico.
He Attentively Listened As I Read Him The GLORIOUS Account Of Jesus Explaining To Nicodemus: "YE MUST BE BORN AGAIN !
His Eyes Were Glued To Mine As I Pleaded With Him That He, A Religoious Jew Like Nicodemus, Must Experience THE SECOND BIRTH If He Ever Wants TO SEE & GO TO HEAVEN !
We Prayed: LORD JESUS, I Know I'm A Sinner, A Child Of The Devil & Going To Hell: I Beg You; Please Come Into My Heart, Forgive ALL My Sins & Cleanse Me With Your HOLY BLOOD--I NOW Repent & Receive You As My Personal Lord & Savior: GOD, BE MERCIFUL TO ME A SINNER: LORD SAVE ME ! Amen.

Evidently, "written in heaven" is better appellated "written on earth" or maybe "written in hell"--as "written in heaven" Questions/Doubts/Queries If Ted (John Or Bobby Fitzgerald) Kennedy Is/Was Ever A Natural Born Citizen Of The U.S.A. !
When There Is Absence Of ANY Written Or Recorded "Original" Birth Record(s) And/Or Document(s)--The Mouth Of Two Or Three Witnessess, Who Were Eyewitnesses To Any Natural Live Birth-- Automatically Establishes The FACT Of A Natural Live Birth: And Stands As An Unwritten (Or Verbal Record Of An) Original Certification Of A Natural Live Human Birth !
This Is The Main Reason Why Ted (Bobby & John) Kennedy Were Natural Born U.S. Citizens--And Barack Obama Was NEVER A Natural Born U.S. Citizen:
As Obama's KENYAN-AFRICAN Born Paternal Grandmother And KENYAN-AFRICAN Born Paternal 1/2 Brother & 1/2 Sister--THESE THREE (3)--HAVE SAID, STATED, CONFESSED, ADMITTED, VERBALLY-AFFIRMED, VERBALLY-SWORN That THEY Were EYE-WITNESSES TO BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA'S NATURAL LIVE BIRTH IN THE NATION OF KENYA !

No mr. "no(n)sense" It Appears That you Are The "hoot" !
As "hoots" Are Well Associated With The OWL-Worshipping "Bohemian Grove", "Skull & Bones", Illuminati & Satanic "Jesuit" (Dis)Order Of The Hellish Roman "Catholic" Cult Of Popish "Jesuitic" Vaticanism !
So With Regards To This Matter, you, "no(n)sense", Can Give A "hoot" & A LOT Of "hoots": Being, As You ARE "a hoot" !
But, Enough Of This "tom-hootering": Let's Get Back On TRACK With The Main ISSUE, SUBJECT & ARTICLE AT HAND:
"U.S. SENATOR TED KENNEDY DIES AT AGE 77" !
NOT, I REPEAT, NOT:
"no(n)sense's/a hoot's" Recommendations to To Tony Lopez-Cisneros !
Having Personally Met & Known John-John Kennedy Jr. & His Closest & Most Intimate Cousin, Dr. William Kennedy Smith; I Can Rightfully & TRUTHFULLY Say That THE KENNEDYS Are One Of The Most Materially RICH--Yet Most Materially GENEROUS & BENEVOLENT Political Families In The U.S.A. !
TED KENNEDY NOT BEING EXEMPT !
*IF ALL THE MATERIALLY RICH POLITICAL FAMILIES IN THE U.S.A. (& THE WORLD) WERE TO EVER FOLLOW THE EXAMPLE OF THE "VERY RICH YET VERY BENEVOLENT-GENEROUS KENNEDYS": I SUPPOSE THE MATERIALLY "POOR & NEEDY" WOULD NOT SUFFER TOO MUCH HERE IN THE U.S.A. (& THE WORLD) !
