Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has a good shot at becoming the next president.
This is because Americans elect the president, not nitwits who work as political consultants, professional victims, far-left liberal media fluffers, and lifers inside the DNC machine.
Kennedy may just win for the same reason Donald Trump won: He hasn’t fallen into a mind-meld with the hyperventilating zealots who develop and implement his party’s platform and opinions.
Trump won the election in 2016 because he bashed not just Democrats, but congress in general. He said, in essence, “I know the system is corrupt, because I use the system to my advantage.” Sure, after the primaries he lessened his by-name attacks on Republicans, but he made it crystal clear he was disgusted by all things slithering through the Swamp.
You know who else holds a similar view of Congress, and knows it’s filled with self-serving elected remoras and a permanent Deep State? Americans.
A Gallup Poll conducted in 2022 found 62 percent of respondents believe “Members of Congress” have “low or very low” standards of honesty and ethics. In case you’re wondering, that’s three points lower than telemarketers.
As I’ve said before, most voters are low-information “my party only” yo-yos, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t a whole bunch out there smart enough to know the system is corrupt, and they vote for the lesser of two evils. Trump came along and said, “I’m your man — these people suck.”
Ergo, the lesser of two evils … president Donald Trump.
Currently, the American punditry is insisting 2024 will be a Biden v. Trump rematch.
Trump – despite delivering brilliantly on almost all of his campaign promises – is hated by too many people to win the general election. Given the choice, registered Democrats will block-vote against him, and millions of registered Republicans will vote against him because he offends their sensibilities — even though it was obvious he was abrasive and obnoxious before becoming President, and he did what he told them he’d do after becoming President.
As an example, let me offer a Marine buddy of mine who’s lived in California for 25 years and has fallen prey to the echo-chamber disease. He voted for Trump as the lesser of two evils, but after seeing him in office became stricken with TDS. One day he was raging on social media about his hatred of Trump, and how he’s so offensive — so I responded.
“You voted for him, and he delivered on almost every platform item you hired him to do,” I wrote. “What’s the real problem?”
“Are you saying the ends justify the means?” he responded.
“Yup.” I wrote back.
“Well, not to me.”
There are millions of Americans like my buddy, whose hurt feelings and ability to virtue signal mean more to them than the policies guiding the future of the Republic. I may not understand it, but they’re out there.

Trump is also alienating people by attacking Ron DeSantis, a much-beloved Republican he should simply leave alone. Trump is going to win the primary no matter what, but he’s pissing off millions of Republicans who love DeSantis — and those voters may just stay home in the general election, unable to hold their nose and vote for Trump.
Trump would be a weak candidate in the general election, because every Democrat (living and dead) will vote against him … throw in a few million butt-hurt centrists and Never-Trumpers, and things are looking pretty thin.
But then you have his supposed opponent, Joe Biden. Even the full-blown socialists cannot deny he has advancing dementia, and at times doesn’t even know where he is. He shakes hands with the air. He comments frequently that he’ll “get in trouble” if he goes off-script. He speaks like a stroke victim, and walks like a frail old man who needs a walker. He refuses to participate in unscripted press conferences, and works 9-5 at best.
No one – and I mean no one – believes for a second he’s actually in charge of anything.
Now consider Robert F Kennedy, Jr, and the interesting mix of beliefs he brings to the table that would appeal to most Democrats (not Socialists), centrists, and Republican-ish voters.
First of all, RFK, Jr. is abhorred by the big-name liberal media, because he refuses to toe the party line like a donkey-logo strapped to a plow. Americans tend to love underdogs hated by the media. The press will attack him relentlessly during the primary, too stupid to remember there are tens of millions of Americans who will vote for anyone to get Biden out of office — provided they have a (D) after their name, and isn’t Orange.
But why is RFK, Jr. so hated by the leftist establishment?
Well, he believes the CIA killed his uncle John F. Kennedy, which it is obvious now that they did. These days, however, speaking ill of the Deep State is verboten, given that the Deep State is a wholly owned subsidiary of the DNC.
Kennedy has spoken out against foreign wars, and called the perpetual arming of Ukraine “money laundering for the military/industrial complex.”
“I don’t want Wall Street running the country,” he said. “I don’t want the neocons running our foreign policy. I don’t like censorship.”
Those statements sound like ideas everyone can get behind.
The zealots are also smashing their tiaras because, in recent months, Kennedy has appeared on dozens of podcasts and online shows. He has held conversations with libertarian actor Russell Brand, psychologist/commentator Jordan Peterson, James O’Keefe and Elon Musk … all men proclaimed be the Leftist bedwetters to be “right wing” or “far right wing.”
But, the Lefties do have a point. I can’t imagine anything more treasonous to the nation than going on a podcast and exchanging ideas with someone who doesn’t agree with every sentence you utter. Debate and learning are for losers.
TIME magazine recently reported that the COVID-19 pandemic brought a new audience for Kennedy’s controversial views regarding the load of vaccines now injected into children under two. I’ve always viewed people who protest the vaccine load being given to children as nutty, but then again something’s going on. Fifty years ago, autism was almost unheard of. Now everyone knows numerous families with an autistic child. Fifty years ago, no one died because they were in the same room as a peanut.
Are his opinions on vaccine nuts? Probably … but he doesn’t shake hands with the air, and can take an unscripted question.
His book The Real Anthony Fauci sold 1,000,000 copies, in which he accuses Fauci of orchestrating “a historic coup d’état against Western democracy.”
Really? Fauci? Perish the thought.

“(His work has) gained a following in online right-wing groups,” TIME went on to claim. “The Children’s Health Defense Fund’s revenue doubled to $6.8 million in 2020, and then again to $16 million in 2021.”
Son of a bitch … I hate it when medical research companies get more funding to research issues regarding children’s healthcare.
“We will respect the right to privacy and freedom from unreasonable searches and seizures, by ending mass surveillance of American citizens and the abuse of civil asset forfeiture,” Kennedy wrote on his website. “We will make sure that the Covid-era suspension of the right to assembly, trial by jury, and freedom of worship will never happen again.”
Again, who but the Marxists doesn’t agree with these remarks?
Kennedy is, of course, a Democrat — and supports the usual hot points: Supporting sustainable agriculture with subsidies, incentivizing a transition to clean energy sources, and protecting wild lands from mining, logging, oil drilling and suburban sprawl.
He’s an enigma, though, because he’s a Democrat with many conservative views.
Here’s why I think he has a real shot: Democrat leaders know they need to dump Biden because he’s an international joke and a mental vegetable. But how do they do that? They have no one on deck that could give them a clear reason to force Biden out, with the exception of Michelle Obama (she/her), and she’s got plenty of time to run … and Kennedy is the only one thus far with the balls to take on their establishment.
All they want is power, so what do they do? Consider the following …
- Democrats know Trump is weak, and can’t win if they put up a decent opponent.
- They also know Joe can’t serve, and when he reaches the point in the near future of no longer appearing in public, they’ll have to admit he’s brain dead, and make Kamala Harris president. Even they don’t want that.
- To avoid that inevitable endgame, which is obvious to everyone, they’ll have to dump Kamala from the ticket, which will cause heads to explode amongst the professional victims crowd. Screams of racism will echo from sea to shining sea, and that’s a perilous situation they don’t want.
- Biden v. Trump would be the lowest turnout in voters ever, because so many voters hate Trump, and so many voters know Joe is not only stupid, but an embarrassment to the nation. The popular vote could be a race to the bottom.
- The DNC typists in the media can try to hide Joe’s disconnection from reality, but you can’t hide it from the average voter in the swing states. As a result, the DNC puppet masters won’t allow Biden to debate Kennedy, or Trump. They can’t. They literally have no choice, and their excuses for refusing to debate aren’t going to fool even the lowest information voters.
RFK, Jr and a well-chosen running mate gives the party a fresh and viable option to secure a win against Trump, simply because Kennedy has a (D) after his name. Their hubris will make them feel they can — like they did with Simple Joe — manipulate him once he’s in office. And maybe they can. Doesn’t seem like it, though.
If they pit Kennedy against Trump, they could have a sure thing — even though they hate that Kennedy’s not a sure-thing puppet. The (D) would guarantee 90 percent of voting Democrats, and Kennedy’s conservative views would appeal to Republicans who are unsure about (or hateful towards) the Orange Man.
The big question is, “Can the puppet masters get over their hatred of RFK, Jr.’s love of America?” Imagine the rage they feel when they ponder these two statements by Kennedy from the TIME magazine piece:
- “I want to be proud of my country. I want my children to grow up in a country that they could be proud of the way I was growing up in the United States of America in the 1960s and ‘70s.”
- “I feel like my country is being taken away from me. I want to restore in many ways the America of my youth, the America I was brought up in.”
In summation, you’ve got Trump, who will be the GOP nominee … who doesn’t bring enough support to win. You’ve got Biden, who no one really wants – and who ensures a future that includes president Kamala Harris. And you’ve got Kennedy, who despite being called a crackpot offers a perspective that could get people excited, the same way Trump got voters excited.
Can the DNC machine support a man who wants to “Make America Great Again?”
Are they worried their polls might get Biden v. Kennedy wrong, like they did with Trump v. Clinton?
Are they pondering what will happen if they try to humiliate Kennedy, but he wins anyway?
Could their efforts to destroy Kennedy result in a President Kennedy who enters office pissed off at his own party leadership?
Are they recalling that total outsider Trump won, beating the establishment hag?
I can’t say what they’ll ultimately decide, but watching it all roll out will be hilarious …
