The Palestinian barbaric attack upon Israel sort of overshadowed Monday’s big announcement by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. that he was leaving the Democratic Party plantation and running for el presidente as an independent candidate. Interestingly, Joe Biden and his cabal have refused to provide RFK, Jr. Secret Service protection despite that family’s history of catching bullets from assassins.
All of that aside, most folks will find his announcement quite impressive and compelling on the surface.
“I’m here to declare himself an independent candidate for president of the United States. That’s not all.
“I’m here to join you in making a new declaration of independence for our entire nation. We declare independence from the corporations that have hijacked our government. And we declare independence from the Wall Street, from Big Tech, from Big Pharma, from Big A=g, from the military contractors and their lobbyists.
“And we declare independence from the mercenary media that is here to fortify all of the corporate orthodoxies from their advertisers and to urge us to hate our neighbors and to fear our friends.
“And we declare independence from the cynical elites who betray our hope and who amplify our divisions. And finally, we declare independence from the two political parties.”

All of that carefully crafted message aside, don’t forget that RFK, Jr. is NO friend of your Second Amendment rights. While he may be superior to Joe Biden at least when it comes to not having dementia, neither of them look favorably upon gun rights, except for Joe when it comes to his son’s run-ins with the law.
ZeroHedge covered it:
Kennedy, who announced earlier this year he was running against 80-year-old Joe Biden for the Democratic nomination, has been polling around 14% in the latest Reuters/Ipsos survey, behind Trump at 40% and Biden at 38%…
Kennedy’s role as an independent candidate could determine the general election. Polling data already suggests he would be one of the strongest third-party or independent candidates in decades – back to the years of Ross Perot…
No doubt he’s going to grab up a whole lot of Democrats who identify as “John Kennedy” Democrats who love their country and have little use for the radical progressive lunatics who run the nation under Joe Biden’s name. And if he siphons off even a few percentage points, it’s going to be extra difficult to cheat on the ballot counting to give Pedo Joe a second term.
