Robert Kennedy’s book on the Moxley Murder Case is nothing but one Kennedy protecting the butt of another Kennedy.

This is deeply disturbing.

My book about the Moxley murder case should be out at around the same time as this one: middle of July.

https://www.amazon.com/Mysterious-Murder-Martha-Moxley-Political-ebook/dp/B01GONEAUW?ie=UTF8&ref_=asap_bc

In my book, I say almost everything the opposite of what RFK Jr. says. My heros are his villains. His heros are vile villains. And that troubles me.

The thing is, RFK Jr. has a horse in the race, and I don’t. Michael Skakel is his effing cousin. I don’t know Michael Skakel from the man in the moon.

I approached my book with a clear head. No side-taking. Just the facts as I uncovered them in over a year of research and another six months of writing. And what I uncovered from reading over 30 books (I own them all. Ask my wife, she says their cluttering our house), and hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles, is that Michael Skakel is as guilty as sin. There is no other possible conclusion, unless Michael Skakel is your cousin, and you’re a Kennedy.

Bill O’Reilly should get his head out of his butt. I know he’s a Kennedy groupie. Most Irish Catholics are. (I bet his family had a framed picture of JFK over the mantlepiece in their home on Levittown, L.I. – We had Sinatra 🙂 )

But saying Michael Skakel is innocent of the murder of Martha Moxley is like saying Judas didn’t betray Jesus. It’s like saying the Japanese didn’t bomb Pearl Harbor. It’s like saying Sinatra couldn’t hold a tune.

But I’m sure RFK is going to try.

He’s got the money. He’s got the name.

But I have the truth.

That’s something the KennedyFamily has avoided since Papa Joe Kennedy was partners with Al Capone and Frank Costello during Prohibition.

The cover of author Larry Tye’s new book about Robert F. Kennedy.
The cover of author Larry Tye’s new book about Robert F. Kennedy.
You could fill a small library with all the books written about the Kennedys. And still they keep coming. Clear shelf space for two more.
Former Boston Globe reporter Larry Tye has written a standard bio of Robert F. Kennedy, called “Bobby Kennedy: The Making of a Liberal Icon,” that drops in early July. And Robert F. Kennedy Jr. checks in with “Framed: Why Michael Skakel Spent over a Decade in Prison for a Murder He Didn’t Commit,” a book whose publisher at least believes is the “definitive” account of the bizarre case involving the Kennedy cousin.
Tye, whose previous bios include “Satchel: The Life and Times of an American Legend” and “Superman: The High-Flying History of America’s Most Enduring Hero,” says Bobby Kennedy was a transformative political figure whose evolution is neither well understood nor sufficiently appreciated.
“His story gives us hope that politicians can grow and change,” says Tye. “Maybe even Donald Trump.”
That’s not to say Kennedy and Trump have a lot in common. They don’t. For example, Tye points out that unlike the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, who last week revoked the Washington Post’s credentials to cover his campaign, Kennedy had an unusually close relationship with the political media.
“He didn’t duck and cover like Hillary [Clinton] does, and he didn’t trash and banish the way Trump does,” says Tye, whose bio also sheds light on RFK’s relationship with Senator Joseph McCarthy and Kennedy’s role in the Cuban Missile Crisis.
The author says he interviewed over 400 people, many of whom have since died.
“Bobby would have turned 90 this year,” says Tye. “This is the last chance to get to these people so they can tell their story.”
The book about Skakel, meanwhile, has been something of a secret. We tried to get our hands on a copy, but Skyhorse Publishing asked us to sign a non-disclosure agreement, which would prevent us from writing about the book before it comes out July 12. (The publisher also has given “Today” and “Dateline” the exclusive.)
What we know is that RFK Jr. doesn’t believe that Skakel did what, in 2002, he was convicted of doing: Killing 15-year-old Martha Moxley in Greenwich, Conn., in 1975. Skakel, whose aunt is RFK’s widow, Ethel Skakel Kennedy, was sentenced to 20 years to life, but in 2013 a judge granted him a new trial and released him on $1.2 million bail.
The new book, which is blurbed by Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly — “Americans interested in justice should be captivated by this book” — asserts that Skakel was “railroaded” by “a crooked cop,” “mendacious writers,” a “treacherous family lawyer,” a “narcissistic defense attorney,” a “craven prosecutor gone rogue,” and a whole lot of “perjuring witnesses.”
So, if not Skakel, who committed the murder? Robert F. Kennedy Jr. offers his own theory, which no doubt will lead to even more books.

Product information:

Snakeheads are the worst human beings known to man.

Snakeheads are Chinese gangsters, based both in China and in the United States, who smuggle Chinese immigrants into the United States.

The price is not cheap; $50,000 a head. And the process is brutal.

Because the Chinese people who yearn for a better life are dirt poor, a small percentage of the smuggling money is paid up front to the Snakeheads. However, the collection of the balance is certain; or bad things happen to the illegal Chinese immigrants: beatings, torture, and sometimes even death.

When they arrive in America, the illegal immigrants work in Chinese restaurants, for pennies an hour. They labor in hot kitchens for 12-18 hours a day, and after work, they are chained in a filthy room so they cannot escape.

If one of them does manage to escape, their relatives in China are punished instead.

“Snakeheads” is set in Manhattan’s Chinatown, where the Italian-American mob tries to horn in on the immense profits generated by the Snakeheads’ human smuggling operation. The Italians want their piece of the action, and the Chinese gangsters resist – violently.

Thrust into the middle of this warfare is an Italian-America detective, who falls in love with a Chinese businesswoman. Together, they attempt to eradicate the villains who profit on the backs of the poor illegal Chinese immigrants.

*****

Throughout the history of mankind, there has always been one constant creed among those scoundrels who inhabit the Underworld – crime pays.

Whether it be John Allen – “The Wickedest Man in New York City,” pimping off young girls in his Manhattan Lower East Side brothel/dance hall, or George Leonidas Leslie, “The King of the Bank Robbers,” knocking off a New York City bank, or Fredericka “Marm” Mandelbaum, all 250-pounds of her, fencing stolen good from her Clinton Street grocery store, making money in a life of crime was a fait accompli; that is, unless you get caught, which happens all too often.

Some pay back society with time in prison, other’s pay with their miserable lives, and some scoot away scot-free, never to answer for their wicked offenses against humanity.

Crime Pays: Scoundrels and Their Schemes will bring you on a seedy ride that slithers across the underbelly of American society, where every crook and criminal has their own unique gimmick to fill their greedy pockets with other people’s hard-earned cash.

*****

Virginia Hill was a knock-around broad who bedded down the biggest gangsters of her time. It was said Hill spent more time on her back than Michelangelo did painting the Sistine Chapel. The word on the Las Vegas streets was that she was the exclusive property of mobster Bugsy Siegel, and it was plain to everyone in the know that Bugsy was just crazy about Hill.

But was Virginia Hill really a Trojan horse in Siegel’s camp; put there by the Mafia to make sure Bugsy was giving them an honest count on their Las Vegas ventures?

The answer is not that cut and dried.

*****

Degenerate gambler and sportsman, Jacob (Bald Jack) Rose (Rosenzweig), due to a rare disease, had nary a hair on his entire body. But what Rose lacked in hair, he more than made up for with a diabolical criminal brilliance that put him “head and shoulders” (no pun intended) above the competition.

In the early 1900s, one of Rose’s competitors was fellow gambler Herman Rosenthal, a mean and snaky runt who had the reputation of being a stool pigeon, or as they say on the streets – a rat – for the New York City Police Department. Rose and Rosenthal both owned competing gambling joints in the seedy uptown area of Manhattan called the “Tenderloin,” or “Satan’s Circus.”

Rosenthal’s partner of sorts was corrupt New York City Police Lieutenant Charles Becker, who was not adverse to taking money with both hands (graft) from the Tenderloin’s gambling joints and houses of prostitution. Rose and Rosenthal both paid Becker handsomely, but then Rosenthal got the idea he was too big a man to continue to line Becker’s pockets with cash.

What happened next was called “The Crime of the Century.”
