I’m going to begin posting articles here, most recent at the top, about RFK Jr.’s run for president. He is, of course, the best Democratic hopeful we could possibly have and maybe the best presidential hopeful period.
His chances of winning the Democratic Primary are slim at best, but we shall see.
I do have a hard time with his environmental stance…
Jordan Peterson Interviews Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
Keep Your Eye on RFK, Jr.

Most of the article entitled, “Dum-Da-Dum-Dum…Dah,” is not about Kennedy. But there was this paragraph:
We will go forward from this whether we like it or not, of course, because the arrow of time flies only in that direction. What is the best way out of this wilderness of dishonor and disgrace? Take a lesson from the campaign, so far, of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. The way Mr. Kennedy has been straight-talking — around the coordinated slanders and scurrilities of an ignoble news media — he makes the current leadership of the Democratic Party look like the most pathetic claque of rascally whack-jobs ever assembled under a gonfalon. Keep your eye on RFK, Jr. He’s moving downfield, even without blocking.
Should the Left Give RFK, Jr. a Chance?

This publication leans left.
If Joe Biden was hoping to sail through to renomination despite abysmal approval ratings, that’s not going to happen anymore, even if all the potential establishment candidates have backed out. Likewise, if the president still thinks he can avoid debating what I’m sure will be a serious challenger, backed up by rapidly rising poll numbers (RFK Jr. is already at 19%, within a few days of declaring), then he is sorely mistaken. Avoiding debate, and dismissing your opponent as beneath notice despite popularity, suggests a fatal flaw that will rear its ugly head at some point.
The Courage of RFK Jr.

A conservative publication…I guess that’s obvious.
As RFK Jr. pleads with liberals to safeguard the First Amendment, defend civil liberties, reject cancel culture, and defeat “lockdown liberalism,” it hardly matters what he calls himself, conservative or liberal. The urgency of his message obliges all Americans of conscience—left or right—to listen.
On the Jabs:
Kennedy hasn’t just crossed that line; he has relentlessly and courageously attacked it. Warning that the current “jabs” are the fruit of public health-sector corruption, he has spotlighted what many suspected but couldn’t readily prove—that a legal and moral “firewall” between government and corporations in an area of vital public interest has dissolved. He has helped Americans to seriously ponder the consequences.
RFK, Jr.’s Destructive Environmental Record

To be fair…who knows what he thinks about everything now. The last three years have a profound effect on what many people, including myself, now believe about our governments, corporations and past history.
Kennedy, who is somewhat infamous for his egregious soundbites, has stated multiple times that “climate deniers” and “global warming skeptics” should be sent to jail.
On Al Gore
Though RFK, Jr. has never held office, he’s no stranger to the political machine. In 1999, along with Lawrence Rockefeller, Kennedy endorsed Al Gore for his 2000 presidential run. “He’s our last best chance to save the planet,” said Kennedy.
It’s a long article with a lot of information.
DNC Aborts Primary Debates, But Elections Are Still Officially Not AT ALL Rigged, And You Can See Photos of Mick Jagger On Stage If You Need Any Reassurance That Joe Biden Is A Young, Fit Rock Star

So, it’s done, then, I suppose. Even the pretense of “democracy” is packed and gone. Why do our minds refuse to fully accept it? Mine anyway.
We all wondered: “How will he be able to debate Robert F. Kennedy Jr.?”
Now we know. He simply won’t. However, you are welcome to look at Tweets conflating the youthful vigor of Mick Jagger, same age as Biden, if you, as a Dem, need help wanting to vote for Joe Biden.
RFK Comments on Fox Firing Tucker Carlson
Fox fires @TuckerCarlson five days after he crosses the red line by acknowledging that the TV networks pushed a deadly and ineffective vaccine to please their Pharma advertisers. Carlson’s breathtakingly courageous April 19 monologue broke TV’s two biggest rules: Tucker told the…

Then Bobby spoke. No notes, no teleprompter. A tiny glitch here or there. Lots of talk about corruption, about agency capture. The futility of the Ukraine war. A broad, big picture speech about what was wrong with our country and how to heal it. Many standing ovations.
Even if You Don’t Agree With Him on Everything
He is an honest person. He has the common touch. He has a soaring intellect and extensive knowledge base, which were on display in his talk. He is a gifted speaker. He has gravitas. He has travelled everywhere, he knows the way our government works, he knows a zillion people in government.
He doesn’t need to run, he is risking everything to run, and he is running not for his ego, not for fame or money (since he already has them, and the beautiful wife) but because he needs to tell the world the truth with the biggest possible megaphone, to help save it. He is putting his body against the machine.
Even if you don’t agree with everything he says, no matter what quibbles you might have with him, you know he is risking his life for us, to preserve America and our Constitution and to make things better, not worse. He is somebody you have to respect. You have to take him seriously. Godspeed.

The full speech is at the source. This was near the end of the speech:
What is a Kennedy Democrat? And I want to say one final, final thing, which is, and I’m going to put my cards on the table. I am not an ideal presidential candidate for normal times. I’m not one of these people who’ve spent their life saying, I’ve got to be really careful because one day I’m going to be in the White House. I actually did the opposite of that. And I had a very, very high risk life and a lot of fun.
But it wasn’t, it wasn’t careful. And I mean, even though the issues that I’ve attached myself to, anybody that looks at those issues, would not say, oh, this guy was just trying to get into the White House. I’m trying to get myself out of all my friendships, and my political party and everything else. I had a rambunctious youth and it lasted until my early sixties. And I told my wife the other day, I said, I got so many skeletons in my closet that if they could vote, I could be king of the world. In normal circumstances I would not do this. But these are not normal circumstances. I’m watching my country being stolen from them. And I owe it to my children and my family and my legacy. I don’t want the Democratic Party to be the party of fear and pharma and war and censorship. We have to be more than just neocons with woke bobbleheads. We need we need you know, we need to stand up to corporations. We need to stand against war. We need to—we need to put our children first. We need to stop listening to the large corporations in many ways. And that’s what a Kennedy Democrat is. We need to bring this party back to the party of FDR, of JFK, of RFK, Martin Luther King, and those values.
Bobby Steps Up

Of course, Yahoo News, and all the rest of the in-the-tank news media greeted Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s presidential announcement by branding him a “noted-anti-vaxxer,” as if that’s a bad thing. Yes, noted, thank you very much. Reuters elaborated: “Kennedy has been banned from YouTube and Instagram for spreading misinformation about vaccines and the COVID-19 pandemic.” By now, whenever you see the agit-prop platitude spreading misinformation, does your brain not instantly translate that into telling the truth? And by now, does banishment from social media not tell you that certain guilty parties recognize a truth-teller when they see one?
The Left’s Gamble
Most of all, the Democratic Party faces a severe reformation. It’s about to be dragged kicking and screaming out of the diabolical Woke hall-of-mirrors it gamboled into under the Clintons and Barack Obama. How those characters deal with the uncomfortable reality of RFK, Jr. will be something to behold. Finally, there is the news, straight from The New York Times, that “Joe Biden” intends to announce his reelection plans within days. The idea is preposterous, of course, the old grifter visibly oxidizing a little more each day in plain sight of the whole world.
