John F. Kennedy To Enter Trash Bin of U.S. History With Release of Bombshell Tell-All Book

John F. Kennedy's former Presidency is about to take a huge dive into the trash bin of U.S. political history with the February 8th release of a former White House intern's book about their 18 month affair. Let there be no doubt that Mimi Alford's book, Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath is going to do a lot of damage to the Kennedy name thanks to all the salacious details she's crammed into it.

The first thing that came to mind after reading a few of the highlights from the book was that JFK never should have become President, not only due to his dishonorable character cheating on Jackie, but because he was strong blackmail material.  Being blackmailable means another politician or government could use such information to influence JFK to sacrifice the country's best interests in order to cover-up for his improprieties.

The first astonishing fact in the book was that Mimi, who was just 19 at the time, lost her virginity to JFK in the First Lady's bedroom.  If you think that's a big deal, you haven't heard nothing yet because it gets worse, far worse!  The type of things Mimi's disclosed are what one might expect from a Mick Jagger, not that of a U.S. President.

So let's first get some background on how JFK managed to get a beautiful young woman in his grasp in the White House.  JFK, who it seems now was a sexual predator, simply decided he was going to have sex with this young naive intern taking advantage of her situation.  He never even thought twice she might not want him or would ever say no.  Kennedy swam up to Mimi in the White House pool and later had her attending some tour group at the White House.  When Mimi arrived JFK invited her on a tour with him only for the group she was with to pull back. JFK then led Mimi to the First Lady's bedroom (above photo is as it was in 1962) where he seduced a teenage 19 year old virgin.

“Haven’t you done this before?” he asked.
“No,” she said.
“Are you OK?” he asked.

Hell no, Mimi wasn't okay!  How can you say no to the President of the U.S. and expect to survive such an ordeal?  Anyway, back to the sordid details of JFK who apparently viewed himself as a college frat boy in the White House.  Don't get me wrong, I could really care less about what JFK did in the bedroom except for that if he wanted to lead that kind of lifestyle, he should have chosen another profession of perhaps being an actor or musician.

I wanted to point out that Ms. Alford appears to be highly credible. This is how she came to write her book when the media tracked her down back in 2003.

"Ms. Alford’s secret was initially divulged six years ago when a biography of Kennedy was published with portions from a 1964 oral history that described the president’s 18-month sexual affair with a young intern named Mimi Beardsley. The Daily News tracked her down and discovered that she was Marion Fahnestock, who was divorced, working for the Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church and living in Manhattan. At the time, she gave a short statement confirming that she was “involved in a sexual relationship” with Kennedy from June 1962 to November 1963.
Susan Mercandetti, executive editor at Random House, acquired the book after seeing about 20 pages and meeting with Ms. Alford. “I’ve seen enough to know what an extraordinary heart and soul exists in this book,” Ms. Mercandetti said.
Ms. Mercandetti, who was herself a White House intern under Gerald R. Ford, said the book would be a 'woman’s coming-of-age story.'" - Paramour of Kennedy Is Writing a Book (2009) -
I'm not going to turn this post into porn by revealing exactly the kind of things Ms. Alford has revealed.  Instead I'll basically outline how nuts JFK must have been living a dual life.

"She also tells of how JFK asked her to 'take care' of his friends Powers who 'looked a little tense' while they were swimming in the White House pool. 'It was a dare, but I knew exactly what he meant. This was a challenge to give Dave Powers oral sex. I don’t think the president thought I’d do it, but I’m ashamed to say that I did... The president silently watched,' she said."  - JFK Took the Virginity of White House intern Mimi Alford, 19 -

Did you catch that?  JFK watched them both have oral sex!  Purportedly, JFK later apologized to the both of them.  At a later time JFK also suggested Ms. Alford take care of his baby brother Ted but this time she declined with "are you kidding me?"  

I'm not done yet.  JFK also forced Ms. Alford to sniff amyl nitrate, otherwise known as 'poppers' she had declined at a Hollywood party at Bing Crosby's desert ranch.

"The president asked me if I wanted to try the drug, which stimulated the heart but also purportedly enhanced sex. 'I said no, but he just went ahead and popped the capsule and held it under my nose. He didn’t try it himself. This was a new sensation, and it frightened me. I panicked and ran crying from the room." JFK Took the Virginity of White House intern Mimi Alford, 19 -

Did you catch that?  JFK was in effect forcing a date rape drug on her!  I now believe there's a strong possibility the Kennedys did have Marilyn Monroe snuffed based on this kind of outrageous activity.  Clearly, JFK should have never become President of the United States (and neither should have Bill Clinton in my opinion).  This information has completely changed my view of JFK who I now have far less respect for.  He was just another sleazy low down dirty politician while parading as a decent human being raising a family. In the photo at right, it appears JFK is channeling Bill Clinton. How sad.

The new Kennedy quote for the history books is will be . . .
During the October 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis, where the U.S. and USSR had a nuclear stand-off, he reportedly told her that: 
'I’d rather my children red than dead.' JFK Took the Virginity of White House Intern Mimi Alford, 19 -
As for Ms. Alford, she was clearly lured into the situation quite innocently in my opinion. She was led to believe she was going on a White House tour and had no reason to believe JFK would try to have sex with her. What a crazy man JFK was to have done this while being a husband and father to such a beloved First Lady Jackie and her two children?  JFK clearly had no honor and as far as I'm concerned, belongs in the trash bin of U.S. history now.  Many Americans died because of this man's reckless decision in the Bay of Pigs.
