Although Robert F. Kennedy authorized the FBI to wiretap MLK's telephones and extensively put King under surveillance, it was discovered eventually King was not affiliated with the Communist Party.

http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2...

RFK, however, did negotiate the safe passage of the Freedom Riders from the First Baptist Church to Jackson, Mississippi, where they were arrested and offered to bail them out, although they refused.

Then RFK was reluctant to protect and advance the Freedom Riders due to a concern that international publicity of race riots would tarnish the President heading into international negotiations and this reluctance alienated many of the Civil Rights leaders at the time who perceived him as intolerant and narrow minded.

It was RFK who sent U.S. Marshals to Oxford, Mississippi, to enforce a federal court order allowing the admittance of the first African American student, James Meredith, to the University of Mississippi.

But it sounds more like a love/hate affair between King and the Kennedys, so it was a surprise that someone suggested King voted for him.

$55,000 a year to someone who "earns" $800,000 a year is chump change. Chump.
And when numerous and frivolous lawsuits are awarded vast amounts of money, we end up paying for them.

Hospitals pass on the costs of their outrageous insurance to us too.

Chump yourself.

Apparently, Coretta Scott King was scared her husband would be killed in jail and called an advisor to Kennedy because she had heard he previously tried to release King from jail.

Eventually, word got to Kennedy who promptly called Mrs. King.

Mrs. King was so pleased, she told Martin Luther King, Sr.(MLK's father) who then announced Kennedy's "concern" was enough to make him leave the Republican party and vote for Kennedy.

This helped shift the African American vote in Kennedy's favor.

From all accounts, Martin Luther King, Jr., remained bi-partisan.

Nixon's press secretary didn't want him to get involved and blocked any calls about the situation.

If Nixon and his advisors handled the situation differently, the election may have gone his way.

Just something to think about. A phone call changed history.

How old are you? A southern Democrat was and is simply a white man rich enough to afford a rope.
I must remind you it was MLK who spoke of the oppression by Democrats in Alabama and Mississippi:

Children crying out answered with fire hoses, snarling dogs and even death...young people brutalized and murdered...40 houses of worship in Mississippi alone bombed or burned.

A Southern Democrat was a racist.

Changing the law to limit frivolous lawsuits and making those who file frivolous lawsuits pay all the fees and courts costs if they lose is just one of the practical solutions to lower the costs of health care.
But liberals don't like practical solutions.
Michael Bloomberg should be made to pay Defendant's and all Court costs for his stupid attempt at becoming Chief of NYC Food Police.

He should be made to pay for lost sales, if any, too.
He should also be forced to pay for being an azzhole but that would set a dangerous precedent, wouldn't it?.

THAT would put a stop to frivolous frivolity of frick'n food fools for sure.

That same FBI surveillance also detailed MLK's infidelity to Coretta but she later forgave him, of course.

Wiki - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Panther_vo...
"....in January 2009, less than two weeks before the Bush administration left office, the civil rights division of the Department of Justice filed a civil suit under the voting rights act against four defendants,...
The case remained open when the Obama administration took office a few weeks later.
In April 2009 Bartie Bull, a former civil rights lawyer who was serving as a poll watcher at the polling station where the incident occurred, submitted an affidavit at Justice's request supporting the lawsuit, stating that he considered it to have been the most severe instance of voter intimidation he had ever encountered.[2][5]
When none of the defendants who were charged appeared in court to answer the charges, the career attorneys pursuing the lawsuit assumed that they would win it by default. However the career attorneys' move to pursue a default judgment against the defendants was overruled by two of their line superiors, Loretta King who was acting Assistant Attorney General and Steve Rosenbaum, Acting Deputy Assistant Attorney General.
Hans A. von Spakovsky, stated that internal e-mails from the Department of Justice released under a Freedom of Information Act request show that political appointees were "intimately involved" in the decision to drop the case, including former deputy attorney general David Ogden, Associate Attorney General Thomas Perrelli and attorney general Eric Holder, and that Perez may have committed perjury by denying this in his testimony before the Civil Rights Commission.
In October 2010, a draft report from the Civil Rights Commission was posted on the political website TPM Muckraker, stating that political officials had been extensively involved in the decision to dismiss the case, and that the Department of Justice had attempted to conceal their involvement.[12] Civil Rights Commission chairman Gerald A. Reynolds confirmed that the draft was authentic, but said that it was not the most current version of the draft, and declined to immediately release the newest version or describe what revisions had been made to it.[13] The Justice Department has denied the allegations in the report.
In July 2012, Judge Reggie Walton dismissed the Justice Department's denial, finding that political appointees did interfere with prosecution of the New Black Panther Party"

It's Wednesday morning. Office coffee is ok today. Time to warm up the keyboard...

It is time for all good men to be patriots, and quickly come to the aid of their country with very extreme heartfelt zeal.

... all keys working....

Previously on topix:

Obama never attended classes at Columbia;
Obama's mother was a low-life college dropout, Obama was a low-life college dropout;
Obama never saw the inside of a courtroom as a lawyer;
Obama spent over a hundred million dollars vacationing in Africa while there wasn't enough money to give hot chow to the troops in the field in Afghanistan;
Obama's recovery is putting 5 people in poverty for every 1 person getting a full-time job;
Nobody knows where the money will come from to pay for Obama's government;
Obama's government increases the debt by 8 percent every year just for its day-to-day existence while the economy is stagnant;
Congress has the lowest rating in history because of the Louisiana Purchase and Cornhusker Kickback, cowering and not investigating Eric Holder running guns for Mexican drug cartels, cowering and not investigating the White House hanging Americans in Benghazi out to dry while they watched Al Qaeda kill them on the real time video feed, cowering and not investigating the unconstitutional acts of the IRS, cowering and not investigating the unconstitutional activities of the NSA, funding DHS and giving Janet Napolitano enough money to buy more tanks than landed at Normandy and more machine guns than the Marines had on Iwo Jima and enough ammunition for both sides to fight World War I for twenty years while there wasn't enough money to give hot chow to our forces in the field in Afghanistan;
... and on, and on, and on...

And, yesterday it became obvious the prospect of Andrew Napolitano running for president scares the everyloving hell out of the Democrats.

That's our candidate: Andrew Napolitano. The Democrats are convinced they can't beat him.

And now, today's episode....

I suppose trading with them is interferring with their affairs, right?
The Arabs find some reason to be at war with everything they are in contact with. We examined the border of the Arab world with the rest of the world from the Atlantic shores of Morocco to the Pakistan-India border, and we discovered that along every inch of that border the Arabs find some reason to be at war with whomever is on the other side of that border.
The only reason the Arabs are at war with us is because we exist. If we didn't exist, the Arabs would be at war with whomever it was that would occupy our position in the world.
