Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s Candidacy and What Might Have Been

Wall Street Journal Opinion reports: When I was a kid in the mid-1950s, I used to play touch football with Robert F. Kennedy, the father, and his crew on a field in Georgetown. I remember one Saturday morning when—despite being conspicuously pregnant—Ethel Kennedy was in the game. She lined up as a wide receiver. Bobby, as usual, was captain and quarterback. Ethel faked right, then cut to the inside, and her husband threw her a perfect spiral. She bobbled it, the ball doing a little dance in midair for a second, and then she dropped it. Bobby, infuriated, cussed her out. The baby in Ethel’s womb that morning was Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. For me, Bobby Jr. seems to float in the interval between then and now, dislocated in time.  Read the full opinion piece here.If you resonate with this message please subscribe to our newsletter to learn more.

RFK, Jr.’s Campaign for Truth – and the Presidency of the United States

The Desert Review reports: Truth is in high demand at a time when Americans are being lied to about everything daily. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. made his career as an Environmental Lawyer by using the truth to beat deceitful corporations like DuPont and Monsanto. He upped the ante during the COVID-19 Pandemic by exposing US Vaccine Czar Dr. Fauci in his best-selling book, The Real Anthony Fauci. RFK, Jr. has told inconvenient truths about Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, and the massive benefits of early treatment. He has grown into a painful thorn now piercing the Biden political agenda. At a time when the Democrats were confident they had neutralized their main threat – Donald J. Trump – with an unprecedented, concocted charge and high-profile arrest, Bobby Kennedy came out of nowhere to a 39 % popularity rating – a rise of 14 points, compared to Biden’s 43% - a drop of 11 points. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is running for President of the United States and is now a major contender. It seems the ruling administration has a lot to worry about with RFK, Jr.’s meteoric rise.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Emphasizes the Importance of a Democratic Election and Hits DNC in Speech to New Hampshire Senate

CNN Politics reports: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., the environmental lawyer and anti-vaccine activist who launched his 2024 presidential bid earlier this year, discussed the importance of a democratic election and critiqued the Democratic National Committee over the push to change the presidential nominating calendar in a Thursday address to the New Hampshire Senate. Speaking to lawmakers in the New Hampshire State House – a rare public speech since he began his presidential campaign – Kennedy said it’s important that “we have a real democracy and a democratic election in New Hampshire.” “There’s so many Americans who believe that the system now is rigged, the economic system, but also the political system, that the elections are fixed,” he said in Concord. “And we ought to be, the Democratic Party particularly, ought to be making this election a template for democracy to our country and to the rest of the world.” Read the full article here.If you resonate with this message please subscribe to our newsletter to learn more.

Time to Ban Drug Advertising on TV in America?

Maryanne Demasi reports: Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr recently said that if he becomes president, he will ban pharmaceutical advertising on US television. “It’s not good to have pharmaceutical advertising on TV,” said Kennedy. “It’s good for the television stations, it’s good for the pharmaceutical companies, but it’s not good for public health.” The US and New Zealand are the only two nations globally that allow drug companies to promote their products directly to the consumer – known as direct-to-consumer advertising (DTCA).  Kennedy said that because of pharmaceutical advertising in the US, Americans use more prescription drugs than anywhere else in the world, and yet, they have the worst outcomes.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.: The Presidential Dark Horse

Crisis Magazine reports: As I scoured through Crisis Magazine’s archive, I noticed there was not even a single mention of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (RFK Jr.). So I thought that, given his recent announcement of his bid for the leadership of the Democratic Party, a piece about him would be of interest to Crisis readers.  His uncle, John F. Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, was assassinated in 1963. Five years later, in 1968, his father, Robert F. Kennedy, the former United States attorney general, who at the time was running for the Democratic presidential nomination, was also assassinated. His cousin, the son of JFK, also known as John-John or JFK Jr., who was an American attorney, journalist, and magazine publisher, tragically died in a plane crash in 1999. Needless to say, the Kennedy family has been marred by tragedy. So, who is RFK Jr., and why should American voters care? I’ll sketch out the main reasons as to why I believe RFK Jr. could be a strong candidate beyond partisan lines for those who are looking to vote for a person beyond the disappointment of two political parties.

Why I Believe RFK, Jr. Will be the 2024 Democratic Nominee

The Hill reports: If the shocking 2016 presidential election of Donald J. Trump taught us anything, it should be that voters can still be unpredictable and unpollable, and that millions of them believe that the entrenched elites from both political parties no longer hear their voices or speak for them. Voters are continually seeking a new champion. Will Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. become such a champion? I believe so — at least as far as the Democratic primary process is concerned.

How Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Wants to Make America Democratic Again

The Daily Telegraph reports:  The last time an RFK challenged the sitting US president in a Democratic primary, amid the backdrop of record low polls, civil unrest, and war, he was assassinated. While the parallels between Robert F. Kennedy in 1968 and son, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., in 2023 are eerily similar, the surviving scion of the Kennedy political dynasty isn’t deterred by the spectre of a deep state assassination becoming another uncanny resemblance.“It’s something that I’m aware of. You know, there are risks,” Kennedy said after announcing his candidacy and up-ending the 2024 election.“As far as I’m concerned, there are worse things than dying, a lot worse. And one of those is that my kids will grow up in a country, an America, that doesn’t have freedom of speech. Where constitutional rights are conditional.”Read the full article here and here (behind a paywall).If you resonate with this message please subscribe to our newsletter to learn more.

Biden’s a Fool to Ignore the RFK, Jr. Challenge

The NY Post reports: If you happened to see pigs flying the other day, it’s because Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. visited the New York Post to discuss his challenge to President Joe Biden for the ’24 Democratic nomination. It’ll be a serious challenge, if the Democratic establishment and its media allies can’t quash him. Kennedy has real conviction and charisma, and he’s fiercely independent of many of the party’s reigning pieties — all of which should appeal. Read the full article here.

Robert Kennedy, Jr. Makes Campaign Debut at Bitcoin 2023

Bitcoin Magazine reports: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. made his first public appearance as a presidential candidate at the Bitcoin 2023 conference today, sharing his own experiences with Bitcoin, warning about how technology is enabling government totalitarianism around the world, and describing how he would protect the rights of Bitcoiners if elected president. “As president, I will make sure that your right to hold and use bitcoin is inviolable,” Kennedy said. "I am an ardent defender and lifelong defender of civil liberties and Bitcoin is both an exercise and a guarantee of those freedoms.” Kennedy told the crowd that he was first inspired by Bitcoin as a critical freedom technology after learning about how it was used to circumvent financial restrictions during the Canadian trucker protest last year. “None of these lawful and peaceful protestors had violated any law… But suddenly, they found that they could not access their money, their bank accounts to pay their mortgages or feed their families,” he recalled. “When I witnessed this … devastating use of government repression, I realized for the first time how free money is as important as free expression.” Read the full article here.

We Should Give Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. a Listen
