Presidential Candidate RFK, Jr. Visits Flint-Area Picket Line

The Detroit News reports: Longshot presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. visited Michigan union workers picketing at a Flint-area General Motors plant Friday ahead of meetings with Flint water activists and a city official. Before joining workers near a bonfire in a metal barrel, Kennedy said he supports the wage demands of the union, which has sought a pay increase of 40% over the length of the new contracts with GM, Ford Motor Company and Stellantis. Workers should be able to afford the cars they make, Kennedy said. “That really ought to be the theme of every industry in the country," he said. "And that’s no longer true.” Friday’s trip to Flint wasn’t a first for Kennedy, a former senior attorney for the Natural Resources Defense Center. He said the lead contamination of Flint’s water and the mismanagement of the situation by the state, prosecutors and courts is “a recurring story.” “The people who got sacrificed were communities who drank the water and whose kids were hurt,” he said.

RFK, Jr. Speaks to Restoring Critical Thinking, Finding Common Ground During Mississippi Visit

Epoch Times reports: At the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum on Oct. 2, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. spoke of the nation’s old wounds—and new—while addressing his determination to move the country forward if elected president. “Every nation, like every individual, has a darker side or a lighter sight, and the easiest thing for a politician to do is to appeal to our anger, to our greed, to our darker angels, to our self-interest,” Mr. Kennedy said. He recounted the 1968 presidential candidacy of his late father, then U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy, who sought to help communities transcend tribalism by pushing aside the temptation to advance at the cost of others. The polarization witnessed today—fueled by a fear that has hindered critical thinking—is not unlike what it was in the 60s when his father strived to speak not to the tribalism but to a shared vision of the nation as a community on a “noble adventure,” Mr. Kennedy said. “All of us have the ability to go either way; it’s part of our humanity,” he said. “What I’ve tried to do during this campaign is to find that middle ground that rests on the values that we all share in common rather than appealing to those narrow little issues that keep us all apart.” Read the full article here.

Save the Country,' declining to provide any specifics. "I want to tell you now what I've come to understand after six months of campaigning: there is a path to victory. The hope we are feeling isn't some kind of trick in the mind." Kennedy's announcement is set for Monday, October 9, in Philadelphia. Read the full article here.

RFK, Jr. Warns That Corporations Are 'Trying To Buy Every Single-Family Home' In America

Bezinga reports: Housing affordability has been a pressing issue in America. While many people point to supply shortages, rising material costs and stagnant wages as drivers behind the crisis, Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. believes there's another culprit — corporations. "The real reason that housing has outpaced anything else is because there are three giant corporations: BlackRock, Vanguard and State Street," Kennedy said at a recent event in Los Angeles. He said that these three companies already own 88% of the S&P 500, and now they are coming after single-family homes in America. Read the full article here.

RFK, Jr. Teases Possible Third Party Run, Blasts Democrats: ‘A Problem They Created’

The Messenger reports: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is teasing a possible independent run in 2024. Appearing on the "This Past Weekend" podcast with comedian Theo Vonn, Kennedy Jr. accused the Democratic National Committee (DNC) of rigging the primary process in favor of incumbent President Joe Biden. Kennedy Jr. said he can beat Biden is the DNC gives him a "fair fight." "It's like if you went to a football game and the referee in the game was wearing the same uniform as the guys you are playing against," Kennedy Jr. said. Asked by Vonn if a third party run could be in the cards considering he feels the primary process is rigged, Kennedy Jr. was open to the idea. "If they really shut down the process — we're right now, we're grappling with the DNC, trying to get them to do the right thing, but if they rig the process so that I can't possibly win, which is how it's rigged right now, then I would have to look at other options," he said. "I would have to look at running outside the party." Read the full article here. If you resonate with this message please subscribe to our newsletter to learn more.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Attacks Biden’s “Disaster” Border Policy, Calls It Unsustainable

Fox News reports: 2024 Democratic Presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. took direct aim at President Joe Biden’s immigration policies in a new op-ed, calling them a disaster. Writing in Newsweek, Kennedy ripped the Biden administration for "refusing to secure our southern border" which has led to "endless floods of migrants pouring through an open border" and "impossible burdens" for American cities. Kennedy, Jr. laid this situation at the feet of President Biden, writing, "Clearly, the migrant crisis resulting from the Biden administration's refusal to secure our southern border has created impossible burdens for municipalities across the country." "The idea of sanctuary cities was to protect immigrants from ICE raids. But no city can manage endless floods of migrants pouring through an open border," he declared. In a parting shot to the current administration, he concluded, "Current policies are failing our country and putting an intolerable strain on American cities that have already faced unprecedented challenges in the last three years. We desperately need a different approach." The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment.  Read the full article here.

Biden's Border Policies Have Made Every U.S. City a "Border Town"

Newsweek reports: "We are about to experience a financial tsunami that I don't think the city has ever experienced," warned New York City Mayor Eric Adams at a recent meeting about the city's migrant crisis. "Every service in this city is going to be impacted, from child services to our seniors, to housing." According to Adams, the status quo of 110,000 migrant arrivals in just the last year is utterly unsustainable and threatens to "destroy the city." To address the financial impact of the crisis, which he estimates could cost $12 billion by 2025, he directed city agencies to cut 5 percent from spending by November. New York is hardly alone. Cities across the U.S. are experiencing crises in social services and severe budget shortfalls because of the unprecedented migrant influx. Chicago is facing a $538 million budget shortfall for 2024 with more than a third of that shortfall resulting from the migrant crisis, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. And according to Axios, the city of Denver is in the midst of a budget crisis after spending more than $23 million to provide services to migrants since December, with costs of up to $1,000 per migrant per week. Clearly, the migrant crisis resulting from the Biden administration's refusal to secure our southern border has created impossible burdens for municipalities across the country. The idea of sanctuary cities was to protect immigrants from ICE raids. But no city can manage endless floods of migrants pouring through an open border. I'm actually in favor of immigration—legal immigration. High fences, wide gates. Politicians in the past have appealed to xenophobia and bigotry in calling for a tough border policy. My call for a tough border comes from a different place. It comes from compassion and humanitarian conscience. I call upon all Americans, of every party and political persuasion, to face facts. President Biden's loose border policy has been a disaster. Under Biden, it's easier for migrants to enter illegally than legally. His policy is tantamount to "narrow gate, no fence."

Joe Biden Faces Disastrous Defeat If RFK, Jr. Runs as Third Party Candidate

Newsweek reports: According to the Rasmussen Report survey, 41 percent of Democrats have an at least somewhat favorable view of Kennedy along with 56 percent of Republicans and 49 percent of those without party affiliation. In total 49 percent of likely voters view Kennedy favorably, including 14 percent for very favorably.   Speaking to Newsweek a Kennedy campaign spokesperson said: "The fact that President Biden is so unpopular that fully a third of Democrats would vote for an independent candidate in the general election underscores the importance of running a fair and competitive primary election. If the DNC [Democratic National Convention] fails to do that, it will likely be saddled with a weak candidate who lacks the popular appeal to defeat the Republicans—whether or not there is a strong third party candidate in the race."

It's Time To Take a Stand

The West View News reports: Grassroots activists get ready down the highway for RFK, Jr.'s "I Stand With Bobby Kennedy" kickoff campaign. And I'm one of them. Why you ask?  Some movers, shakers, and global thought leaders in the West Village are getting ready to mobilize for what they call the "I Stand With Bobby," a grass roots campaign to educate people on the Presidential Campaign Platform of RFK, Jr. The mainstream news isn't acknowledging Kennedy's play for the White House nor is the mainstream media covering the Kennedy campaign while spin doctors continually attempt to reduce the vaccinated Kennedy to an anti-vaxxer for daring to question the childhood vaccine schedule and the dangerously toxic contents of the vaccines that include adjuvents like mercury and aluminum. The science is actually never settled despite what the big pharmaceutical giants would like you to believe. Read the full article opinion piece here.

Eric Clapton Raises $2M for Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Campaign in California

The Hollywood Reporter reports: Eric Clapton performed at a fundraiser for presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. at a private estate in Brentwood near Los Angeles. The event raised $2.2 million for Kennedy: $1 million for the campaign and $1.2 million for a PAC supporting the candidate. “I am deeply grateful to Eric Clapton for bringing his musical artistry and rebellious spirit to my gathering in Los Angeles last night,” Kennedy said in a statement. “I sometimes think that in our divided society, it is music rather than any kind of intellectual agreement that has the most potential to bring us together again.” The presidential candidate continued, “Eric sings from the depths of the human condition. If he sees in me the possibility of bringing unity to our country, it is only possible because artists like him invoke a buried faith in the limitless power of human beings to overcome any obstacle.” Clapton joins a growing list of celebrities who have spoken out in support of Kennedy, including the candidate’s wife, Cheryl Hines, Rob Schneider, and Alicia Silverstone.
