If RFK,Jr. Is going to stop the forever wars, he could start by not supporting Israel/US in the current Israel/Gaza war. Israel has been a key player in the Military Industrial Complex for decades, as RFK, Jr. knows, so it’s hard to make a case that this present war isn’t part of the forever wars that he wants to end. More than likely it’s AIPAC that is deciding. More than likely it’s AIPAC that is causing RFK, Jr. to lose his moral compass.
You are such a TRUE lion 🦁 Mr Talbot!
I so enjoy and impatiently await your pieces !
Thank you for all your support and generosity of time helping my Amigo!
My father who is probably around your age ( 81) a lifelong republican is HORRIFIED by the state of his nation!!
I am giving him Devils Chess Board & Brothers for Christmas as he’s a voracious reader and student of history and both of those books should be required reading for every American!
Thanks again Commander I look forward to meeting you some day with Bobby!!
Oh my word mr Talbot -this is the article I have been waiting for! Thank you for writing it -and thank you Kennedy Beacon for publishing This -and so many other great pieces. Finding ways to talk to friends family and even strangers where we connect on common ground over the issues that are destroying our democracy is THE KEY to our grassroots effort. November 2024 can’t come soon enough for us to elect a leader worthy of the title President of these United States.RFK jr -thank you for your stellar lifetime of leadership that has prepared you for this moment in history!
I'm voting for RFK jr...full stop. But arguing that "the CDC says that most people who died from covid had 3.8 chronic diseases," tells me nothing. The CDC is a captured, lying, corrupt institution as Mr. Kennedy knows well. It may be better to exclude quoting them as a source of reliable information--since they aren't one. While you're at it, quoting the journal "Science" falls in that same criticism. Liars--all.
Another perspective, maybe only my own... His healing of major trauma, beyond the death of his uncle and father, shows his life from a more spiritual perspective. It the one Joseph Campbell centered his career on, "The Hero's Journey". This journey, from a soul perspective, is one all humans are on. Some become conscious of it, some do not, but it involves healing the aspects of ourselves that separate us from God, Source, Creator. As the universe expands, humanity is raising its consciousness from a place of "Power Over Others", to "The Power of Love". We no longer feel fear of death (or anything else), abandonment, mistrust, etc. because we feel our eternal selves. Each moment holds an opportunity to choose love over fear (hate). I have rarely seen individuals in this state of authenticity and detachment from the need to be right, or conform to norms. Never mind in someone running for president. He truly listens and doesn't just kiss babies, he wants them to have a healthy, more prosperous life here on planet earth. It's time.
Ty for this! Come January I’m going to start campaigning for him and I will use this list on a flyer I’m putting together to handout. #kennedy24
Will RFK Jr. Bring to an end the control over US foreign policy by the Israel Lobby and the Zionists/Neocons?
Thanks for the summary. How did I miss RFKJs recent fundraising rally in Ojai? Is he coming back? Where was the fund raiser? I’d like to connect with those who hosted him. My kids live in Ojai and I’ve been wanting them to host a fundraiser for him.
Kennedy24.com one of my favorite “RFKJR” quotes “the censors are never the good guys”
The Thanksgiving message was great. You can see RFK Jr. asking the US citizen to contribute to society more, and people wanting to do it
Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has made several statements regarding reparations. He clarified that his policy of "Targeted Community Repair" is not the same as race-based reparations.
Reparations have 17% support among non-black voters. I don’t know why your article acts like supporting reparations for people from seven generations ago is feasible or wise given we are drowning in injustice today.
Here here! Kennedy is an old school renaissance man, a man for all seasons & a man’s man to boot. Highly educated and well-read, philosophical, extremely physical, spiritual, humble, brave….all the things we strive to be and hope our children will be. This world needs a leader with those qualities…..someone who can lead us down the righteous path….someone we want our children and grandchildren to emulate.
The Israeli/Palestine issue is a designed wedge issue too. People have been in Rip Van Winkle mode on this long term conflict hoping it would go away. Unfortunately for the Palestinian cause the antifa set and the radicalized left have taken it over as the grievance du jour. And the Palestinians will get dropped like a hot potato once another cooler outrage gives them excuse to get angry. Little do they know these issues, like racial issues are promoted by the parties to divide everyone
Did he go back to being anti - war yet .. if NOT.. I’m out
The Democrats define austerity as not borrowing $2 trillion a year! The solution is to make the upper classes - including the so-called "upper middle class" - pay their fair share. The Democrats think borrowing it from them instead is a no-brainer: money for social spending AND stimulate the economy AND they don't have to get in a fight with people who have the power to fight back. What's not to love?
Like I said, it inflates asset prices more than workers' income. It also increases the power of the already too powerful upper classes. (The Founding Fathers understood the danger of that extremely well, but not the Clinton-Obama-Biden Democrats.) And it sets up a fiscal disaster down the road. (In spite of their utter hypocrisy on the subject, the Republicans are totally correct on that last point.) Triple-ugh!
I assume you support making the upper classes pay their fair share, but your party just gives lip service to it regarding the rich, and not even that for the "upper middle class" (i.e. lower part of the upper class). According to Biden, under $400,000 a year is middle class and they deserve to be protected. "Not one dime" more in taxes.
This seems to be the truth, doesn't it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yBumTNZvVvk
