Did RFK, Jr. Hint the ‘Rigged’ DNC May Force Him To Run Third Party?

The Hill reports: Last week, Kennedy himself called out the Democratic National Committee for “rigging” the primaries against him to benefit Biden. Said Kennedy, in part: “It’s pretty clear that the DNC does not want a primary … Essentially, they are fixing the process so that it makes it almost impossible to have democracy function. They’re effectively disenfranchising the Democratic voters from having any choice in who becomes president, the Democrat nominee.” Kennedy next shook the pillars of the Democratic power base by hinting at something that could alter the outcome of the 2024 election. Said RFK Jr., in part: “If the DNC is going to rig it so that it is simply impossible for anybody to challenge President Biden, you know I need to look at other alternatives. Because I can’t go back to the people who support me and to my donors and say you know I’m in this to make a point. I need to show them a road to victory …” “Other alternatives.” Boom goes the political dynamite.  Read the full article here.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.'s Plan to Fix Plastics Pollution

The Hill reports: Global expansion of plastic production, especially with single-use plastics, has created a crisis for human health and the environment. President Biden has failed to confront the problem. He has focused on false environmental solutions that waste billions of taxpayer dollars, as plastic pollution rapidly gets worse. Plastic waste is so ubiquitous that it has entered the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, and even our blood. Some of the toxic chemicals used in everyday items such as plastic packaging can cause cancer and birth defects. Our oceans, lakes, and rivers are now burdened with more than 200 million tons of plastic pollution. According to current estimates, some 11 million tons of plastic waste enter the world’s oceans every year. As a result, the oceans are now filled with 170 trillion pieces of plastic. That’s 21,000 tiny microplastic pieces for every person on Earth. Worse, that amount is doubling approximately every six years. We can turn it around though. There are sensible ways to manage plastic production, replace single-use plastic items with more sustainable alternatives, and overhaul our waste and recycling infrastructure. Single-use plastics are typically used for only a few minutes but leave us with waste that lasts hundreds of years. I have a ten-point plan to fix the problem. Read the full op-ed by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. here. If you resonate with this message please subscribe to our newsletter to learn more.

RFK, Jr. Draws Biggest Crowd Ever to Scott Brown's ‘No B.S. BBQ’ Campaign Event

NHJournal reports: The “No B.S. BBQ” hosted by former GOP U.S. Senator Scott Brown and his wife Gail Huff Brown — a Republican candidate for Congress in 2022– has emerged as a must-stop for GOP presidential candidates in New Hampshire. Nearly every Republican in the race has made an appearance this cycle, and former President Donald Trump is rumored to be planning a stop as well. But according to Brown, the biggest crowd he’s had this year came to see a Democrat: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. More than 500 people came to see Vivek Ramaswamy at the Rye, N.H. event last month, the largest crowd to date, Brown told NHJournal. But the RFK, Jr. crowd was more than twice that size. “This is an amazing crowd. I’ve never had a crowd like this ever, so congratulations,” Brown told Kennedy as the crowd cheered. Brown put the attendance at around 1,200 or so, but he said local police estimated it was closer to 2,000. The populist Democrat rejected claims from the Biden administration that “Bidenomics” has created a prosperous economy, noting that America’s poverty rate recently spiked. It was a reference to a new report from the U.S. Census Bureau that the percentage of Americans living in poverty jumped from 7.8 percent in 2021 to 12.4 percent last year. “I’m running against two presidents who both are claiming they brought prosperity to America. But when I say to people, ‘Are you experiencing prosperity?’ they feel like they’re being gaslighted.” Read the full article here.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Holds "Day of Service" Event and Town Hall in Walpole

WMUR 9 reports: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. campaigned in New Hampshire on Monday, holding a community town hall event in Walpole. The Democratic challenger to President Joe Biden also participated in a "Day of Service" event at Abenaki Springs Farm in Walpole, one of over two hundred volunteer-led community service events sponsored by his campaign over the weekend. Kennedy said the Democratic National Committee is stifling democracy by trying to take the first-in-the-nation primary away from New Hampshire.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Criticizes Republicans and Democrats as Primaries Heat Up

Irish Star reports: Impassioned Democratic Party Presidential candidate Bobby Kennedy, Jr. has fired broadsides at a Republican and members of his own party as his campaign heats up ahead of the eagerly anticipated Primary Season. He has accused President Biden’s party of an “undemocratic attempt to rig the Primary Process” after New Hampshire Democrats defied the national party to keep their primary the first in the nation. He said: “I thoroughly support New Hampshire’s century-old status as the first primary state and the political culture that has grown up around it,” said Kennedy. The new first state in the official calendar is now South Carolina — a state in which President Biden has performed well, in contrast to his losing record in New Hampshire and Iowa. Kennedy plans to continue campaigning in New Hampshire in defiance of the DNC's scheme. But he is also showing surprising strength in South Carolina. "If the Biden campaign thinks they can win with administrative tricks and evasions, they will be in for a rude surprise in both New Hampshire and South Carolina," Kennedy said.

Why We Need Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Now

Idaho Mountain Express reports: As a populist, outside the beltway mindset, Kennedy appeals to a large portion of the Trump support base, which has a deep-rooted mistrust of the “swamp.” I think he can solidly defeat Trump. However, if Biden nabs the Democratic nomination, we will be looking at another four years of Donald, as the majority of Americans will struggle to back Biden. Kennedy has been unfairly labeled by the mainstream press as an anti-vaccine conspiracy theorist. These labels, when looked at closely, hold no water. His opinions are solidly backed by science, and he has openly challenged anyone to publicly debate him on all of his stances. He has fought for free speech and open debate, both of which have been rapidly repressed in recent years. Seeing these as the cornerstones of a true democracy he embraces any challenger to a fair and open debate on all topics. I urge all Democrats to skip over the negative labels the mainstream press heaves on him and listen to what he has to say and the studies he has to back his opinions. This may take some digging as the press insists on keeping his campaign out of the mainstream media. Read the full article here.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.'s Plan to Use Government Bonds to Help First-Time Home Buyers

Breitbart reports: Democratic presidential contender Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. said this weekend that the government should assist first-time home buyers by offering them discounted 3 percent mortgages, financed by selling tax-free U.S. Treasury bonds. “I’m gonna give everybody a ‘rich uncle’ — it’s gonna be Uncle Sam,” he said. “I’m going to have Uncle Sam cosign those mortgages. This new class of mortgages is going to be for single-home buyers in those communities who are going to live and work there.” The proposal is similar to one floated by the late conservative Harvard economist Martin Feldstein, who wrote in June 2008 that the U.S. could avoid turning the subprime mortgage crisis into a full-blown financial crisis by using the government to offer partial financing to homeowners whose mortgages were more expensive than the value of their homes. The suggestion was not taken up; three months later, Lehman Brothers failed and the market crashed. Kennedy described the decline of homeownership among young Americans as a problem not just for the economy, but also for American democracy, which has historically relied on a large and growing middle class for stability.

An Argument for the Relevance of RFK, Jr.

Scheerpost reports: The U.S. today is facing catastrophe with the leading 2024 election candidates of both the Democratic and Republican parties being fatally compromised at a moment when our foreign policy is on the verge of collapse. The most credible candidate remaining on either side may be Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. whose standing is rising daily. Even though only about 20 percent of Democratic voters favor him over Biden, his numbers will rise dramatically as Biden fades into oblivion. Kennedy’s hopes are similar to his father’s in 1968, starting with no perceived chance against Lyndon Johnson or Hubert Humphrey but close to becoming the front-runner when he was assassinated. The Biden administration is courting such an eventuality by denying Kennedy Secret Service protection, but I assess they’ll fail at this particular dirty trick. While until now the mainstream media have dumped on RFK, Jr. big-time, that may be changing. He just got his first indication of mainstream support in a recent Forbes article on his economic program. He is reaching large audiences with his Joe Rogan and Tucker Carlson interviews. He is showing himself a serious candidate with his measured stance on stopping the Ukraine war and skepticism about COVID-related policy. His vow to rebuild the American middle class is a meaningful, realistic goal that has the potential for traction. His stance on the issues is showing appeal to Republican voters looking for an alternative to Trump. Read the full article here.

NYC Voters Explain Why They’re Voting for RFK, Jr. Over Biden: ‘Going To Unify the Nation'

Fox News reports: Kennedy addressed a crowd of about 800 people gathered in a Brooklyn warehouse Wednesday, speaking on a number of topics, including immigration, inflation, the housing market, and ending the war in Ukraine. Voter, Wallie Wolfgruber, said she is "very excited" about Kennedy's candidacy, and hopes that he will "bring more unity and peace" to America and the world. "After all this separation, just to be able to be tolerant again, tolerant of each other's different opinions," Wolfgruber, who said she was originally from Germany but is a U.S. citizen, told Fox News Digital. "The right to have an opinion and to express it is so basic in a democracy, and I feel it kind of going away." "I'm running against two presidents who both served one term and essentially are gaslighting the American people by telling them that they produced a wave of prosperity for this country. They are running on that record," Kennedy said, garnering applause. Read the full article here. If you resonate with this message please subscribe to our newsletter to learn more.
