Why do men fight for servitude as stubbornly as though it were their salvation? Giles Deleuze Every empire, however, tells itself and the world that it is unlike other empires, that its mission is not to plunder and control but to educate and liberate.
Here is a link to Kennedy's announcement speech. Interesting that they chose to put it on youtube. If youtube takes it down, will there be accusations of election interference?
Thanks for this breakdown of RFK, Jr’s speech!
As per the extensive research done at bailiwicknews.substack.com, we need a candidate willing to acknowledge the unconstitutional regulations written over the decades to enforce medical tyranny, get us out of the UN and the WHO, and not impose a digital dollar backed only by our “good” behavior.
Finally someone who speaks for me.
I like what I'm hearing, but what does he mean by "He talks about how his risky lifestyle has not tailored him to be a presidential candidate."
Also, I would like to drill down into his environmental protection strategy. Global warming is fake, and if you look at a graph of Earth's history, you will see that the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere fluctuates quite a bit, and so does the temperature. Right now, the levels of CO2 are not that high, if you look at the climate cycles. If RFK is going to continue on with the "CO2 is the enemy" , I don't know if I can vote for him.
Though there's plenty for me to disagree with Kennedy about (regarding some of his views), it was incredibly refreshing to actually hear someone who calls themself a Democrat actually stand for the things that Democrats *used to* stand for and that I actually agreed with them about. The other refreshing thing was to actually hear people cheering about the issues Kennedy raised in his speech. And in Boston of all places! Regardless of where Kennedy's campaign goes, I'm thrilled he's out there saying what hasn't been heard for a long time. Especially from a "Democrat".
Thanks for the recap. I watch the speech twice and found it/him compelling. I plan to work for his campaign and vote for him.
Great speech but he won't get the democratic nomination because his policies would ruin most of them!
Regardless of the numbers, Junior stands no chance of being awarded the nomination. That's not how the DNC process operates, "superdelegates" and all that. If he did, we'd all get whiplash from how fast his key positions would pivot. It's not believable, even by the current (highly degraded) standards. His role is probably to rally some of the disgruntled D-leaning masses and then deliver them over as a package to the establishment candidate. You know, kinda like Bernie. Bernie's all used up.
Another possibility (and one I like better) is that, when he loses the nomination, he enters as a 3rd-party spoiler candidate. You know, kinda like Ralph Nader. This would be the more honorable course, but might not play as well to his base -- or to his handlers. (You know he's got 'em.)
Should be a fun story to track, regardless. Looking forward to your future reporting!
A bridge too far maybe, but if RFKJr completes only a fraction of what he has announced, what a paradigm shift.
I love the man, but he is too dangerous to the moneyed interest. Let us hope the CIA will not assassinate him too.
That is the question! I am willing to do whatever I am asked and at least stand on a street corner with a Kennedy sign. But I suspect what I am to do will unfold and appear now that I am making myself available.
Thank you for this transcription!!
As a younger person I read all of Edward Abbey's books, and was fascinated when his Monkey Wrench Gang inspired groups like Earth First.
Have you read Colin Fletcher's "River"? All of his writings affected me. He inspired me to want to hike the Pacific Crest Trail, which I have not done and now it's too late. But . . . what an idea!
Who makes the decisions in our society? Who writes public policy?
Years of social engineering has caused people to be deluded on this matter.
The White House and Congress don’t make the decisions, Wall Street and the Pentagon do.
What we have is the continuation of a duopoly in which the differences between the two sides of the duopoly are far less important than their similarities. There is a largely successful establishment effort to control the political process so that the range of options is severely limited. We have the outward semblance of democracy without the reality of it.
Voting in the United States isn't about "democracy"—it's about perpetuating the illusion of democracy.
In today's US, especially at the national level, elections are worse than worthless -- they simply perpetuate illusions and waste time. They are degrading and repulsive exercises in Madison Avenue PR techniques, where "the truth" is off limits from the get-go. Effort should be directed not at participating in this system, but at exposing its corrupt essence and building genuinely constructive alternatives.
Until he declares that the current Climate Change movement is a scam, I'm not interested in supporting him.
