COMMENT: Receiving relatively little coverage, the assassination of Robert Kennedy is back in the courtroom, with Sirhan corroborating the “girl in the polka dot dress” element (following hypno de-programming), scientific evidence of more than one gun, and eyewitness testimony of more than one shooter.
If this case were allowed to unravel to the extent that it might, the history of the United States and the world itself would crack open like an eggshell. As discussed in AFA #9, evidentiary tributaries leading from the RFK assassination go to the assassination of his brother John, the assassination of Martin Luther King and the shooting of George Wallace.
In that context, “Vanfield’s” latest contribution bears further emphasis.
Robert F. Kennedy Jr.‘s wife was found dead of hanging, an alleged suicide. One wonders if a message was being sent.
The late Ms. Kennedy reportedly had wrestled with psychological problems and substance abuse, which no doubt will keep the mainstream pundits satisfied.
Obviously, we cannot say for sure whether Ms. Kennedy took her own life or was the recipient of “assisted suicide.” We would note in this regard that plenty of people struggle with substance abuse and psychological disorders and don’t kill themselves.
Rush Limbaugh got hooked on “Hillbilly Heroin” (Oxycontin) and sought treatment for his addiction. He didn’t hang himself. (If he had, he’d have needed dock rope, plus a block and tackle. The most telling comment I’ve heard on Limbaugh came from comedian Mark Russell who compared Rush to the Hindenburg, although admitting that it was inappropriate to compare a flaming Nazi gas-bag to a magnificent airship.)
EXCERPT: Mary Kennedy, the estranged wife of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., died of “asphyxiation due to hanging,” according to the results of an autopsy performed on Thursday.
Mary Kennedy was found dead in her Bedford, N.Y., home on Wednesday. The 52-year-old designer had struggled with alcohol and drug problems.
In 1994, the former Mary Richardson married Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an environmental lawyer and son of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. The couple had four children together. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. filed for divorce in May 2010. . . .
