On Wednesday, Robert F. Kennedy Jr., a Democrat and a member of the Kennedy political dynasty, filed his statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission, declaring his intention to run for president. His committee is called Team Kennedy, which launched his website at this link. His formal announcement will be made April 19 in Boston, Mass.

Kennedy, the son of former Sen. Robert F. Kennedy and Ethel Kennedy, is the nephew of President John F. Kennedy and Sen. Ted Kennedy, both deceased. However, his own family members and the media have distanced themselves from him due to what they consider controversial views on vaccines and their link to autism. He became a spokesperson against Covid-19 vaccines during the pandemic and opposed mask and vaccine mandates.

Kennedy Jr. has had a career as an environmental lawyer and has worked for many years with the Natural Resources Defense Council. He is the founder of the Waterkeeper Alliance and has served as an adjunct professor of environmental law at Pace University School of Law.

Kennedy Jr. was nine years old when JFK was assassinated while serving as president, and 14 when his own father was shot dead during his presidential campaign in 1968.

Marianne Williamson, a New Age self-help guru, has already declared her challenge to President Biden, who has not yet declared his reelection candidacy. On the Republican side, several candidates have announced their candidacy, including former President Donald Trump, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy, and former Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson. Several politicians are weighing jumping in, including Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, Sen. Tim Scott, former Ambassador John Bolton, South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, and Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin.

“Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has spent his life fighting for American democracy and the liberties guaranteed by the Constitution. He has battled against corporate greed and government corruption to protect our children, our health, our livelihoods, our environment, and above all, our freedom,” his website says. “With integrity, courage, and self-sacrifice, he has led Americans in an ennobling fight to restore our country as an exemplary nation, and to end the toxic polarization that divides us and enriches the elites.

“His character and unique history fighting crooked bureaucracies make RFK, Jr. the only person who can bridge the divide and fix our country,” according to his campaign.

  1. Man would I LOVE to see China Joe in a debate with JFK Jr!
    It would be, metaphorically at least, the grassy knoll all over again, with PotatoHead taking the place of JFK Jr.’s late uncle.

  2. Family of mafiosi, greenie commie… Only better than brandon in that he can read a teleprompter… This man is dangerous for America.

      • Oh man, thanks for the chuckle! Yes, I would think some of the more conspiracy-minded folks on here would love him, even if he is a “radical leftist.” Although, he isn’t a big fan of science/modern medicine, so maybe he would play well with many of the MAGA-MRAK crowd.

      • At least the “horse paste crowd” (and quite a stupid corporate media talking point there, parrot) aren’t keeling over due to unprecedented levels of cardiomyopathy, aneurysms and other clot-shot-induced malignancies.

        • Neither are the vast majority of the tens of millions of people that took the vaccine. Over a million Americans died from Covid and most of them were unvaccinated. Get a grip. You call Lincoln a “parrot” but the same could be said of you, except that the epidemiological data don’t support your position. If all you see is conspiracy, then that’s all you’ll ever see.

          • C(ommunist)man, you disingenuously and dishonestly ignore the VAST amount of epidemiological data clearly demonstrating the inordinately high level of injurious and even fatal side-effects of the Wuhan Virus so-called “vaccine”.
            .
            But if all you see is establishment propaganda and corporate media disinformation, that’s all you’ll ever see.
            .
            PS: Hypocrisy, thy name is radical leftist extremist.

  3. We want FJB to run again. Let’s see his millions of votes. If he was to win then everybody would see the fixed voting by the demos.

  4. A Democrat primary debate between Biden and RFK Jr. should be done in sign language. One can’t audibly be understood and the other can’t be understood by anybody. They could give each other the finger after every question.

    • Funny! RFK has so much more class than Biden. RFK is an accomplished author, attorney, and he reasons well. Biden is a plagurist, cheated through law school, never really practiced law, and reasons by way of what the union bosses tell him, what Dr. Jill commands, and by what his lesbian and transexual controllers instruct him to do. Biden is a complete joke as a president and will go down in history as the Democratic Party’s counterfeit, substitute bench-warmer until they can organize untraceable election fraud.

  5. I was very happy to see RFK Jr’s hat being tossed into the ring. Robert Jr. I believe represents the best of the Democrat Party, the part that are still Americans. Accordingly, I joined his team and forwarded a donation.

    Do I agree with Robert Jr on everything? Hell no, but his message IS head and shoulders above the evil corrupt , soul crushing, freedom robbing, slave making corporatism that Biden and yes , even Trump embraced, especially throughout the SCAMDEMIC.

    Beyond RFK Jr, I’m looking at DeSantis. Think about it for a moment, wouldn’t it be wonderful if our Nation had quality candidates to choose from? Candidates that represent America and not Pfizer.

    • No, I’d rather have a candidate that thinks science/medicine is a real thing. This guy peddles in conspiracy with zero evidence and the slobbering lemmings cheer him on. Hard pass. If we had people like him in the seat of power in the 50s and 60s, polio and smallpox would still be killing scores of people.

      • C(ommunist)man, you radical leftist extremists just LOVE to parrot that line of “zero evidence” for developments and official conspiracies that are screaming directly in your face, only you are too blinded by your divorced-from-reality, establishment-conforming dogmas and agendas to acknowledge them.
        .
        As usual, the act of desperately denying something does not mean that that thing does not exist. Reality is not defined by your desires, biases and dogmas.

  6. I don’t know his thoughts on everything, but I’ve agreed with him on vaccines for a while now. I’m open to seeing what he’s all about. The Democrat label is a hard one to overlook.

    • RFK Jr. is a militant environmentalist, unless you want the wind mills put up in ‘Kennedyland’ (Nantucket Sound) in that case, he is an elite, limousine liberal, from a very corrupt American family who has had A LOT to do w/ the destruction of this country.

  7. Mr. Kennedy has plenty of evidence! He has ” repeatedly” discussed the real life adverse effects, the data, the millions of people who already succumbed to the vaccines and boosters.

    Denial is a survival mechanism for those now ignoring the reality of the jab. Critical thinking and wisdom, however prevented others from making the grave decision to take it.

    Everyone’s physiology is different and will respond to the “experimental ” jabs at different intervals In time….some immediately and some a bit longer into the months ahead. Another reality and guarantee in life.

  8. RFK is also anti-war.! A bonus for me. A fringe candidate perhaps, but not a bad guy in the least so far as I know.
