RFK Jr. BLASTS War Machine Over Ukraine In Announcing Presidential Bid

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has declared his candidacy for President, running as a Democrat. And while the mainstream press inevitably focused on his controversial position on vaccines, much more of his announcement speech was dedicated to decrying the war machine, the surveillance state and the abandonment of middle class Americans.

Guest host Aaron Maté and Americans’ Comedian Kurt Metzger discuss some of the intriguing points RFK jr. addressed in his announcement speech.

  1. No disrespect, but high-speeding clips distorts RFK, Jr.’s delivery making his speech even more foreign to new hearers….should reply in normal motion, otherwise it’s a disservice.

  2. I think that RFK Jr. has a chance. Seriously, if they block him out of the race like they did to Ross Perot and Ron Paul he would more than likely take them to court of us has a good amount of people standing beside him. He would rake them over the coals in the court if they try.

  3. “There is always money for war. You never hear political leaders say they can't go to war because the country can't afford it. They claim not to have money for the poor, homeless and hungry, but war? It's never a problem.”
    – D.I.
    Thank you RFK Jr. for calling out these sociopaths and their dystopian nightmare agenda. Let freedom ring.

  4. Bravo for RFK Jr., and I hope that he doesn't end up like his father and uncle, RFK and JFK. He is speaking against the BIG war machine of the US and the US MIC chiefs might be against this, given that US warring is a lot more profit for them. It ideally would not be this way, except that it rather clearly is. And maybe there are members of the CIA operations branch who are equally sick for war-making. There are other corporations that profit from the US warring or war-making when it often is totally unjustifiable and complete lunacy. They are the worst criminals in this world. They must all cease their war-making ways. I wish well for RFK Jr. He should not have any difficulty in winning a presidential election against schmuck Joe Biden, who is a very sick president.

  5. The New York Times is a rag. RFK, Jr. outlined when vaccines are effective and points out that all interventions have side effects. This used to be basic science until the autocratic bureaucrats of government medicine changed basic science to fill their pockets.

  6. IEarlgrey in Moscow, Russia prepared itself against sanctions & doing very well. Cyrus Janssen, poverty allieviation completed 10 yrs ago in China. CGTN The Point-Hub-Heat Amazing…..

  7. RFL is perpetuating the LIE that spending on war means there is "not enough money" for us to spend HERE on the things we should have if the people in power were not totally DERELICT IN THEIR DUTY AND UNFIT TO GOVERN!

    It is CRUCIAL for us to know the EMBEZZLING SCAM the US lying sociopathic money ADDICTS have done here in all countries they take over. The overview/exposé below is just 6 paragraphs, and shows us what is behind the curtain of lies they dupe us with. Information is power, and knowing what the scammers hide from us will mean we can do good OFFENSE and be effective in fighting the corrupt liars, not just keep reacting as the sociopaths continue to escalate their tyranny and oppression, and take everything from us.

    Here is what the US criminals have done all over the world, since WW2:
    1. Take over a country by coup, assassination, lies about government being corrupt or by threat or invasion so they can…
    2. Implement their EMBEZZLING scam of "privatization", taking over government services & systems and national assets so the corrupt liars can handle fiat government money & BILL THE GOVERNMENT ANY AMOUNT for running such things; they provide themselves with massive exec salaries and insanely high profits, becoming oligarchs and billionaires.
    3. Lie to the public ENDLESSLY to keep us duped.
    4. Praise leaders who submit to US corruption & demonize leaders who RESIST or reverse it  – like Putin, who reversed the US plundering done under US puppet Yeltsin, like Chavez and Maduro in Venezuela, like Gaddafi wanting things nationalized and government money going to THE PEOPLE, like Morales in Bolivia, like Assad who said NO to a US pipeline through Syria, and so on.

    We also need to know that the demonization of both Russia and China is part of the multipronged US sabotage of the BRICS coalition since 2006. The greedy sociopathic money ADDICTS hate that those two countries are doing fair deals with other countries and helping them escape US control, corruption, privatization and loansharking.

    Also, vax co's & digital ID systems to control & subjugate us are "privatized" (as are quarantine camps). The scheme was to get TRILLIONS from many govts FOREVER while arranging to squash us so we could never rise up to stop their corruption, tyranny and inhumanity. They tried many pandemics previously to enrich themselves with government money; this was the most coordinated one – and used the most coercion.

    More specifics re "privatization" embezzling: Yes, in general a government can issue ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY for anything that is physically possible; the corrupt know this and have used that knowledge to scam the public and embezzle government money. They take over government services, conning the public about "saving money" and being "more efficient", but those are lies. The costs actually become higher because the corrupt liars overbill the govt for everything, billing ANY AMOUNT,  providing massive exec salaries and insanely high profits, as already mentioned. And they give us REDUCED services, because their sociopathic greed and money addiction means they take more for themselves and do not supply what they are supposed to supply for us.

    Basically, the US has built a global corruption cartel, taking over countries (and their media) to EMBEZZLE from their governments. The UK, Australia, Canada and New Zealand were coopted and corrupted in the 70s-80s; the massive embezzling that ensued by taking over the many dozens of government services, support systems, assets and resources they had is what gave rise to the billionaire class in the 80s!

    We need a successful INTERVENTION on the lunatic money addicts in power who lie, destroy and KILL for more "money fixes". They are totally UNFIT TO GOVERN and should face charges of dereliction of duty, violating the Constitution, embezzling federal money, crimes against humanity, violating the Nuremberg code, war crimes and more.

  8. Country doesn't need to go back to Ted Kennedy days. He talks in circle. What is he trying to say. Like your democracy is going to tell us. Get off stage. How about regime change of Biden/Kennedy. Sick of their bullshit. Deep state killed john Robert John Jr. Chappaquiddick. Go back to crypt. Your cousin just gave Megan Markle the international star bringing down britian what's Kennedy up too. He is the perfect definition of a rhino. Like the way they copy republicans talking points as their new ideas. Go preach to the ROMAN catholics pope.

  9. I hope either Robert F Kennedy or Trump wins the 2024 presidential nomination.. anyone but Joe Biden. Our country can NOT take another 4 years of Joe Biden like omg the damage he's already done will take DECADES to fix

  10. Gives you hope to hear him speak about this travesty of a proxy war. But they'll never let him win – and the dictatorship is more evident than ever. So, I gather, again it will be – vote in the primary (this time, for Kennedy) – then, vote independent or 3rd party in the general with a very small minority. But hhe'll do what, and after he loses? He'll endorse Biden, I gather, along with Williamson (who's no good anyway because she endorses Biden's war). One thing I'd like to hear more news coverage on – how did Kennedy's son, with a father having this kind of awareness and background (for ex – your fam possibly being assassinated by the CIA) – end up going to Ukraine to fight with Nazis – and to allegedly declare that he was willing to die for Ukraine? A short stint, I've heard .. so maybe he had a big wake-up – but nevertheless ..
