ENVIRONMENTALIST AND FOUNDER OF CHILDRENSHEALTHDEFENSE.ORG
“The REAL Deep State profits from our division and employs so-called “bourbon strategy” techniques to keep Americans in internecine struggles — black against white, urban vs. rural, Christian against Muslim, right against left, blue collar vs. white collar, Republican against Democrat — to distract us all from waging class war against the Deep State Elites.”
Ethel Skakel Kennedy, Bobby’s mom, likes to say “Celebrity is currency, ” and that “the people who have fame and abundance ought to spend them down trying to make the world a kinder place.” Taken from “Chapter 12 of American Values, Lessons I Learned from My Family. Robert F Kennedy Jr.
That to me pretty much sums up what I know about him. I am proud to call him a friend. And for Bobby and I both, it’s not about politics, at all.
NOVEMBER 14, 2023 COLUMBIA SC.
In quick, random order, here’s some of my reasons for supporting Bobby
-Genuinely wants to unite the country, and has the ability to, being liked by many different ‘types’ of people from across the spectrum of issues and ideas, who are tired of the 2-party duopoly
-Calm, humble, kind, fearless, integrity and courage of convictions, truth seeker, thinks for himself, listens to everyone, never engages in partisan BS
-No phony soundbites, incorruptible, cannot be bought
-Thoughtful, introspective, unbiased evidence-based approach to problems
-Deeply considers each problem and possible solutions
-Opposed Patriot act in 2001 and Citizens United in 2010, would get rid of both, put an end to surveillance state, censorship and big private money controlling government
-Vocal about putting an end to corporate capture over government (tech, pharma, banks, oil, military industrial complex)
-Wants to get us out of ‘forever wars’ and to pull back on and expose the military industrial complex
-Wants to pull back NATO and resolve the Ukraine conflict through diplomacy
-Has used environmentalism as a tool to unite Israelis, Palestinians and Jordanians in the middle-east through Riverkeeper Alliance to preserve the Jordan River. Plans to pursue diplomacy in the middle-east that focuses on the future rather than the past, will invite Palestine to recognize Israel as the nation state and homeland of Jewish people and ask Israel to re-offer a two-state solution with safe and secure borders
-Vocal about the dishonesty and agendas of commercial media
-Wants to abolish all pharmaceutical advertisements on television (this has major influence on the ‘news’ narratives)
-Wants to keep the pharmaceutical industry honest with safety testing, transparency, etc
-Wants to get rid of government assist crony capitalism, end subsidies for big ag, oil, etc. and promote true free markets
-Advocate for civil liberties, freedom and free speech
-Against mandates and police state-like policies
-Classic liberal/libertarian sensibilities with respect of others, non-dogmatic, no fake identity politics
-Vocal commitment to transparency regarding FBI, CIA, NSA over-stepping and out-stepping
-Greatest environmentalist of our time, created the largest water protection organization in the world, passionate about legitimate environmental and ecological concerns
-Passionate about cleaning our food supply, exposing the unhealthy ingredients in processed ‘foods’, and ending the chronic disease epidemic
-Wants to bring preventative health more into public discourse; nutrition, exercise, etc
-Wants to end illegal immigration and re-establish diplomacy with Mexico to tackle drug cartels, which he is uniquely suited to pursue as a close friend of Cesar Chavez and spanish speaker with native fluency. Immigration is not a partisan issue. A country with no sovereignty over its own border is no country at all.
-Has an excellent plan to make homes affordable for all, including a program that backs mortgages at 3% for individuals, bring derelict plots to market and a tax structure to keep corporations from continuing to buy everyone out (this also will bring rent cost down dramatically)
-Due to his family/background, he’s remarkably well-learned from the inside of the various power structures and has encyclopedic knowledge on so many topics like we’ve never seen from a presidential candidate in my lifetime
-Due to his decades as an attorney successfully taking on major corporations, as well as corruption in government agencies, he is exceptionally well-suited for unraveling the myriad perverse incentives from corporate capture of the government.
It’s time to find our common ground and fight the real Deep State, and not each other. We need to work together to escape the seduction of their lies and propaganda so we can unite against the real villains! I replaced “anti” with “untested” before the word vaccine in his Wikipedia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_F._Kennedy_Jr. “Robert Francis Kennedy Jr. (born January 17, 1954) is an American environmental lawyer and author known for promoting “untested” (instead of “anti” vaccine propaganda and conspiracy theories”. Did it three times and it got changed back ALL THREE. March 2023.
Robert F Kennedy Jr on Ex-Wife Taking Her Life After Finding Diary of Women He Slept With
Below are various quotes from and about Bobby with mine interspersed here and there. Hopefully, they will inspire you to read his books and support his candidacy for president.
RFK Jr. stands as a figure of dissent, challenging the monolith of scientific consensus with a voice that reverberates with the dissonance of skepticism. His assertions on 5G and its potential health impacts, as well as his critique of glyphosate, navigate through a maze of established narratives, questioning the sacrosanct ground on which “expert opinion” stands. In his view, the notion of “trusting the experts” serves as a sort of ecclesiastical dogma, a modern-day faith-based system that discourages inquiry and stifles debate.
It’s a worldview that turns science into a form of scripture, impervious to challenge, locked away in the ivory tower of academic certitude. In a democracy, he argues, skepticism should not just be allowed but encouraged. The act of questioning, the very art of doubt, becomes a safeguard against the tyranny of unanimity. For RFK Jr., this isn’t merely a matter of ideological battle; it’s a plea for the sanctity of individual thought in a collective world. He finds himself on the frontline, armed with court victories and an arsenal of research, fighting against the Goliaths of industry and institutional wisdom. It’s a cosmic struggle, one that pits the individual against the collective, the questioner against the unquestioned. Whether one agrees with him or not, his perspective presents a cautionary tale about the perils of consensus, and the risks inherent in a society that silences its dissenters. In the end, he calls not just for awareness but for a radical openness, a willingness to engage with the uncomfortable, the dissonant, the out-of-tune notes that may yet complete the symphony of human understanding.
A RECENT POST MARCH 26 – 2023
We’re Fighting an Uphill Battle
The censorship has caused many of us in independent, alternative media to lose huge amounts of money as we can no longer reach our audiences. And while Kennedy hopes to be able to recover some of these lost revenues, that alone will not effect change.
While the U.S. government and mainstream media are clearly engaged in illegal activity, there’s really no penalty for it unless you sue them, and even if you win, the punitive damages are not going to be severe enough to force a change in behavior. At best, lawsuits bring public attention to the problem and cause embarrassment, which might curtail it somewhat.
Twitter Files Reveal the Breadth of the Illegal Collusion
On the upside, we now know a lot about how they operate because of the Twitter files, released by Elon Musk. As noted by Kennedy, it’s far worse than any of us initially suspected. For example, the FBI has a portal into social media that allows it to remove posts and accounts it doesn’t like.
“That is scary. That is against everything our country was founded on,” Kennedy says. “The single most important premise was that citizens ought to be able to criticize the government, which was not true for the American Revolutionary generation. You could be punished for criticizing the king.
And they said we don’t want that anymore. We’re going to have free speech for all. We’re going to make sure that there’s a ferment, that there is a million different ideas bouncing around. And ‘misinformation,’ for better or worse, is constitutionally protected speech.
There are forms of speech that are not constitutionally protected. Inciting violence is not constitutionally protected. Child pornography is not constitutionally protected … But telling a lie to somebody is. It has to be that way because once you appoint an arbiter to tell what’s true and what’s not true, you’ll end up getting one version of the truth, and it ultimately will not be the true one.”
Many Were Paid to Lie
Indeed, if the last three years have taught us anything, it’s that self-appointed “arbiters of truth” get it wrong most, if not all, of the time. And, as noted by Kennedy, the crime is not wrong. The crime is censoring anybody who disagrees, so people never even have the opportunity to discover the error, including themselves (if ignorance is, in fact, the case).
“In May 2020, I published a post that said the vaccines are going to be DOA, they’re dead on arrival, because the monkey studies just came out and they don’t prevent transmission,” Kennedy says. “This was before the rollout.
I was like, ‘We were looking at their own monkey studies and the concentrations of COVID-19 viruses or SARS-CoV-2 viral loading in the nasopharynxes of the macaque monkeys that they had vaccinated was identical to the loading in the unvaccinated monkeys once they were exposed to the disease.’
So, they knew at that time that this vaccine could not prevent transmission. Everybody knew that. And yet they were saying out loud, ‘It can prevent transmission.’ They had no right, no reason, to say that other than to fool the public.
And then they were censoring people like me who were saying, ‘Wait a minute, how’s this possible? How can you possibly make this claim? Of course, it’s not going to prevent transmission.’ So, the crime is not wrong. Anybody can be wrong. The crime is censoring people who were right or who had alternative viewpoints that prevented them from ever getting anything right.
Listen, if I had to predict what’s going to happen now, it’s very clear, this isn’t a speculation. The Biden administration is trying to give the WHO [World Health Organization] these pre-emptive powers to declare future pandemics based upon no evidence. So, all they have to say is there’s a pandemic …
And when you declare a pandemic, not only does it give the government extraordinary powers, it gives the pharmaceutical industry immunity from liability. It gives doctors immunity from liability, which is accompanied, of course, by impunity and bad judgment. It also loosens up billions of dollars in subsidies and cash to promote the business models of those pharmaceutical companies.
At least now, we have the independent power to say, ‘We don’t believe WHO and we’re not going to go along with this global emergency.’ Right now we’re about to sign a treaty that will give that power to the WHO. So Jeremy Farrar, who was one of the masterminds of this PSYOP — he was the guy who hid the COVID coverup. He manipulated the Lancet studies. He directed all these virologists who believed that it came from a lab… to say that it didn’t.
Because of the control, he has over the funding of virology and infectious disease, and biomedical research globally, he was able to marshal these core groups of virologists who just lied to us openly. And then they all got payoffs from Fauci.
Kristian Andersen, Ph.D., got $9 million after he lied to us. Eddie Holmes got $9 million to lie. All the guys who participated in the Lancet paper and the Nature Medicine papers — the ones that were then cited by all of the journalists in the world to say it’s been proven there’s no such thing as a lab leak — we now have their emails.
And all those guys believed it was a lab leak, secretly, privately … but they were telling the public it wasn’t. And they all got payoffs of millions and millions of dollars.”
No Evidence to Support Childhood Vaccination Schedule
As noted by Kennedy, the entire field of virology is basically operating as a criminal enterprise. They never have to prove anything and they’re never accountable. For example, they don’t have to prove that vaccines actually work, or that it’s safe to take multiple vaccines at the same time.
“By ‘work,’ I mean five years from now, you’re more likely to be healthier if you got the vaccine than if you didn’t. If you show me that, I’ll take all the vaccines in the world,” Kennedy says. “But there are no studies that support that, and they’re able to escape the standard safety testing, placebo-controlled trials, prelicensure trials that are de rigueur for every other medicine except for vaccines.”
Seventy-two doses of 16 vaccines are now recommended for American children by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. States have the right to mandate them as they see fit, and in California and New York, all 16 vaccines are mandated. But whether they’re mandated or not, there’s tremendous pressure to take them all.
In California and New York, you can’t even get a medical exemption. Technically, both states allow medical exemptions, but no doctor will write you one because they risk losing their medical license if they do.
“They’re mandating these 72 doses of 16 vaccines, and they’ve never tested a single one … in a placebo-controlled study. They have no idea what the risk profile is for these medicines and they’re mandating them to healthy people …
You’re taking healthy people with functioning immune systems and you’re forcing them to take something that you don’t know what the outcomes are. It is criminal,” Kennedy says.
Will We See Kennedy in the Presidential Race? YES.
ABOUT HIS VOICE. He contracted Spasmodic Dysphonia around age 43. He has had therapy, Botox, and lately surgery In Japan. His voice is SLOWLY smoothing out. I tell people to think of it as an accent. It can force one to pay more attention to his words. Smart move.
“I’ve been an environmental attorney and advocate for 40 years, and I saw the impact of agency capture. That’s why I was able to recognize it so easily when I saw it in the pharmaceutical industry. All these agencies are captured. The pharmaceutical industry owns the National Institutes of Health … CDC, FDA. The coal and oil industry and the pesticide industry on the Environmental Protection Agency.
I was on the trial team in the Monsanto case, which ended up with a $13 billion settlement. We had three trials in a row … [and] we did a lot of discovery. We were able to find secret EPA papers that showed the head of the EPA pesticide division for a decade was a man who was secretly working for Monsanto.”
“So Monsanto was actually directing his movements. In one of the emails we found, Monsanto instructed him to kill a study that was being done by another agency, the Agency for Toxic Substance Control, ATSDR. It’s a smaller agency that focuses just on toxins that are separate from EPA.”
“He’d always been able to control the EPA studies and fix them. But now here’s another agency that Monsanto has no control over that’s actually going to do an independent study on the carcinogenicity of Roundup and glyphosate. ” (2013 Mike wrote a rap song about glyphosate and a hapless farmer using Roundup titled Genetically Engineered Gene. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for a free copy and permission to turn it into music.)
“They were desperate to kill that study and he said, ‘I’m going to kill that study for you, but you need to give me a gold medal when I do that.’ So, these were the kind of correspondence he had with his true boss, Monsanto. And this, unfortunately, is true in all the federal agencies.”
Democracy Has Been Subverted
As noted by Kennedy, most government agencies have been captured by the industries they’re supposed to regulate, and as a result, democracy has been subverted, as they’re no longer working for the American people. They’re working for big corporations that are constantly putting profit above safety.
“There’s now a perfect merger of state and corporate power in this country,” Kennedy says, “and the system is rigged against the middle class and the poor. And by the way, among the captured agencies are the CIA and the Pentagon, which have been captured by military contractors, and they don’t care how much the Ukraine war costs us.”
“Nobody cares because they’re killing Ukrainians, not American kids. So it’s the perfect war for them. And we ship over $112 billion and who gets that? It bounces. A lot of it goes into Zelenskyy’s pocket and then it’s bounced back to General Dynamics, Raytheon and all the military contractors. They then hire many of the generals when they leave the Pentagon.’
“Those are the generals you see on CNN every night, gravely saying we need to defend the people of Ukraine. But they’re working for General Dynamic, stuffing their pockets with the money we’re sending over there. I’m not saying that we shouldn’t be helping the Ukrainian people or that Vladimir Putin isn’t a thug and a gangster …
But we need to understand that we have intelligence agencies and military agencies whose job it is … to destroy American democracy from within. And that those agencies, their job is to provide a constant pipeline of new wars that are going to feed the military-industrial complex which owns them.”
“Look, we gave $112 billion to Ukraine already. The entire budget of the CDC is $12 billion. The entire budget of the EPA I think is around $11 billion. And we have a crisis in this country. We have a child health crisis — 54% of our children have a chronic disease and we don’t know what’s causing it.
We have kids going to dilapidated schools. Our infrastructure is falling apart. We have a middle class in this country that has been hollowed out and destroyed and we need to start paying attention to these problems here at home and solving them.”
DOT — Another Example of a Captured Agency
The toxic train wreck in East Palestine, Ohio, is another example of what happens when regulatory agencies are captured. According to Kennedy, Norfolk Southern Railway has a weekly revenue of $1.5 billion, and its cap for safety violations is $225,000. So, there’s no incentive for the railway to make sure safety regulations are followed.
Its lackadaisical approach to safety has now contaminated an entire region and destroyed the lives of several hundred residents, yet the penalty is barely a drop in its revenue bucket. And again, the reason they’re getting away with this is because the Department of Transportation (DOT) is wholly captured by the big railroad companies.
“I like Pete [Buttigieg], but he’s not a guy who looks at that agency and says, ‘I know it’s a captured agency and I’m going to weed out the people who are corrupt, I’m going to make the trains run on time, I’m going to make sure they have two engineers and I’m going to make sure they’re using electronically controlled brakes and not the brakes they used in the civil war’ — which is what was on this train …”
Why is that? Because [the DOT is] a captured agency. The electronic brakes would’ve cost $3 billion to put on their entire fleet. That is two weeks of revenue for that company, but they rather spent the money on lobbyists, make sure they didn’t have to do that, and then they took the cash and did a stock buyback.
So, they all are getting rich and the people in East Palestine are now drinking poisoned water, their cats are dying, their cows are dying and their children are now exposed to dioxin. A single molecule of dioxin can cause cancer. It is the most toxic molecule that we know of in the universe that’s not radioactive. It’s horrendously toxic, and it’s now spread over the landscape …”
Why Kennedy Believes He Can Root Out the Corruption
As explained by Kennedy, politicians may start out believing their own campaign promises to end corruption but, in the end, they simply don’t know how to fix the problem. They don’t know how to clean up these agencies. Even presidents have been powerless in this regard.
“You can’t go into an agency with 30,000 or 60,000 employees and fix it overnight unless you know exactly where the problem is,” Kennedy says. “So, they appoint a guy to run that agency who’s usually from the industry … And that guy doesn’t know how to fix it either. So, he relies on the department heads and the branch heads within that agency, and they’re all corrupt and have been there 50 years, like Fauci …”
“Some of the politicians are even worse. They just get co-opted. They’re taking money from the industry and becoming slaves to the congressional committee chairs who are all on the take … I feel I can fix this problem like nobody else can because I know how these agencies work.
I know the individuals in these agencies who need to be moved to Nome, Alaska, and the ones who have been doing favors, who are in the tank with the industry. I know the databases that we need to open and make public so that independent scientists can do their jobs.
I know how to stop the corruption in the universities by telling the universities you’re not getting money anymore to do these phony pharmaceutical industry studies or oil industry studies.
I know how to send my attorney general after the journals like the Lancet and The New England Journal of Medicine and sue them for racketeering, saying, ‘You are not telling the truth. You’re claiming to tell the truth to people about medicine, but you guys admit it’s not the truth. It’s pharmaceutical industry propaganda.'”
“All these agencies have that same kind of structure, and I’ve spent 40 years suing them. I’ve spent 20 years suing the United States Department of Agriculture for doing favors for Smithfield Foods, Tyson Foods, Bo Pilgrim, Cargill, and Monsanto. It’s a captive agency …
I feel like I should do this, and that it will give me a chance to talk to the American people. If people want to hear the truth, I’ll win. If they want business as usual, then I won’t. But for me it’s irrelevant. I’m going to fight as hard as I can to win. But my only real concern is to leave this process with my integrity intact and my family.
If I can protect my family and have my integrity, then I’ve done what I’m supposed to do. If I didn’t do this, I would feel like it was an opportunity that I had missed. I might if I can win, change things. And I know how to change things probably better than any politician who has run in the last 20 years …
A lot of the changes that I could make are changes that I wouldn’t need Congress for — how to restructure the agencies, including the intelligence agencies so that they begin to work for the American people and for actual national security rather than what they’ve been doing.
My father had a plan for reorganizing the CIA that I think is still relevant today … The problem is the espionage aspect of the CIA … [It should be] information gathering and analysis to the president to make better decisions, but that’s not what the agency ended up doing …
It has nothing in its charter that would allow it to do paramilitary operations to fix elections, assassinate leaders, kidnap, kill people, and torture people. None of that was part of its initial mission.
[Allen] Dulles [the founding director of the CIA] snuck that in through generous interpretations of some of the charter provisions. And then what happened, the plans division, which is the dirty tricks division, became the tail that was wagging the espionage dog.
And the espionage function of the CIA should be oversight of the plans division. They should be antagonistic toward each other … The problem with the CIA is it has never learned from its mistakes. It never does, because there’s never any accountability … Patriotism means faithfulness to the United States Constitution above all. Above all. And if you don’t know that, you shouldn’t be in government.”

BELOW IS THE ACTUAL DEBATE WITH MY COMMENTS INCLUDED.
JULY 2020 ROBERT KENNEDY JR AND ALAN DERSHOWITZ DEBATE Toward the end at 1:03:32 you will learn something VERY definitive about respiratory infections. “‘FLU VACCINE INCREASES NON-FLU VIRAL UPPER RESPIRATORY INFECTION”. Remember that most die in the hospital from pneumonia, the most severe respiratory infection.
Kennedy’s voice by the way is the result of something akin to or exactly like Spasmodic or Muscle Tension Dysphonia. It has nothing to do with brain function. He is as sharp as can be. He is to be applauded for accomplishing what he has and God willing will do in spite of this minor and sometimes slightly distracting handicap. I regard him very highly.
This is not about politics. They are both Democrats. I am not in love with any party these days. The real issue here is your health and well-being and informed consent. We need to remove politics and religion from the discussions.
PLEASE FORWARD THIS PAGE TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW. see and compare your understanding with my notes right below. mgw
These are my notes from watching the video. I’m sure you will have your own observations as well.
AD Refers to Alan Dershowitz and RK to Robert Kennedy Junior. MGW is for Michael Grant White
AD often uses logic. Logic is a tool not, necessarily the truth. His” hypothetical “ is a tool too often used by others to put words in others’ mouths that they may not have a deep enough understanding of and get used against them later on. It borders on or demonstrates sophism (an argument apparently correct in form but actually invalid; especially: such an argument used to deceive).
The draft analogy will not withstand deep scrutiny. In this case, the “enemy” attacking us is US in the form of the prescription drug industry/WHO/ Faucci/CDC/politicians, and paid media. “Fight wars where they die”. Feeds into our national anthem Star Spangled Banner boom boom boom respect/consciousness tendency to create a” war on this” and a “ war on that” when no real war is being waged except by the prescription drug industry on humanity.
AD says logic strongly suggests this needs Democratic approval and court authority justification but MGW says they too often follow the money and do we really want our lives depending on 9 senior citizens on high in robes that bob and sway over the decades. LOL
Kennedy relies mostly on facts and decades of experience.
Voluntary? Considering that flu shots can (RK “cause transfer of virus to others”) why would you ever volunteer to get vaccinated?
MGW The main issue is the mandatory or informed consent or denial option.
MGW Why do we citizens have to pay for this research?
RK Proven unavoidably UNSAFE.
- Testing healthy people only but mostly sick people get the shots
MGW Bad science guides business and political agenda and they ALL follow the money
RK Faucci is connected with 500 million dollars spent on vaccines.
MGW Gates talks about “a lifetime of safety” OK so let’s inject a few volunteers and wait 80 years and see what occurs. LOL
RK Kids get 72 vaccinations these days. I got three.
RK 4 billion dollars was paid out in vaccine damages but only 1% were brought to court.
MGW how many more billions would get paid out if the other 99% were brought to court?
MGW by the way WE TAXPAYERS pay those fines.
RK 1986 law protecting vaccines. No liability, no risk, no incentive to make safe, no safety tests. They don’t call it medicine and thus get around existing testing laws.
- Defended “accused” murderer OJ Simpson and now defends government-funded prescription drug PROVEN murderers.
AD Prescription drug companies “care deeply for others” MGW. LMAO
MGW. RK’s jury is way more than 12. Facts speak louder than manipulating sophisticated logic.
- “They said will stem the tide of the pandemic “ . These are their words, no proof-= HYPERBOLE.
Gates ”’ One shot equals a lifetime of immunity”. LMAO
Pause the video and read the charts when they are shown.
RK and chart shown at 1:00:14 Cochrane summary. Vaccination saves on average around .04 working days.
RK Flu shot transmits the flu and equals 6 times more likely for you to give someone else the flu.
RK chart 1:01:14 More polio linked to oral vaccine.
RK Longevity was reduced in the elderly after the 1990s when flu shots were added.
AD’s logic. “If it didn’t work why would so many doctors recommend them? MGW to AD why would so many doctors recommend prescription drugs Causing iatrogenic illness and death? MGW-FOLLOW THE MONEY.
AD logic. Placebo testing?
MGW the horses are out of the corral. many fast-track drugs are eventually taken off the market due to adverse reactions found beyond day 1 of drug introduction to the public. An ounce of prevention here = a hundred pounds of cure.
RK Post-distribution placebo testing is discouraged by HHS
AD” Emergency”. MGW NO AD, Plandemic.
RK CDC’s 4.9 billion dollars of budget comes from issuing and selling vaccines. NIH employees tied to vaccines earn up $150,000 yearly from sales on autism.
RK “The CDC is really an arm of industry and completely corrupt “’
RK Any immune responses not proven to be long-lasting. MGW How can they ever be proven With Copious false positive and false negative testing results?
RK picture of Dr. William Thompson: “We have been ordered to fake all the science on autism for the past decade “
BOBBY AND SHERI TENPENNY
In the third episode of our second season of “TRUTH” with Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., Mr. Kennedy interviewed renowned physician Dr. Sherri Tenpenny about various aspects of the COVID crisis. They covered a lot of territory which included discussions regarding:
- The implementation of transhumanism
- Google’s many ties to the pharmaceutical industry and how this affects the ability to find information that’s not part of the Pharma paradigm
- The link between flu shots and susceptibility to COVID
- Expanding the list of who can administer vaccines in the UK to “meet the need” of vaccinating the population
- The Bill Gates agenda item of being able to conduct surveillance upon every square inch of the planet
- How going into a digital currency would result in slavery
From Michael Grant White
“LIKE BOBBY, I AM NOT ANTI VACCINATION.
I AM ANTI-UNTESTED VACCINATION“
Firstly, I believe some vaccinations can work, sometimes. Polio MAYBE? OR WAS IT REALLY ELIMINATING DDT? Measles, small pox and perhaps others or maybe not. I am VERY suspicious of how the vaccination industry can possibly be using perceived past successes to further their potentially toxic UNtested injections using unknowing or forced and unwilling humans.
The key is our “RIGHT TO CHOOSE – INFORMED CONSENT.”‘
Alec Baldwin Interview. August 6 2020, TRUTH episode #10
It ends at 57:36 missing a few last words of little relevance so not to worry.
My takeaways are below this video.
There are parts of the interview I would have answered differently but all in all it helps to get a better grasp on the big picture and key underlying factors.
A few takeaways.
1. Viruses mutate/morph/change every year.
2. Last year’s vaccine does not work on this year’s virus.
3. Antibodies last months not years BUT the bottom line is that:
There are NO safe vaccines. So why bother discussing antibodies in the first place PLUS they do not protect against vaccine damage.
4. The odds of vaccine damage (sickness, brain damage, or death) are 1 in 40. If you knew you or a loved one has a 1 in 40 chance of sickness or death from taking a vaccination would you still do it?
So I (MGW) ask what can happen if you get more than one up to say 40 vaccinations? The odds of harm surely must increase. Do the odds after 40 vaccinations increase to one to one? Do they react with one another to cause multiple compounded damages after one has taken more than one?
5. Bottom line is to strengthen the immune system.

IT’S TIME TO FIND OUR COMMON GROUND AND FIGHT THE REAL DEEP STATE
Big Oil, King Coal, Big Chemical, Big Tech, and Big Pharma are titans of a Deep State cartel that is driving our country down the road to plutocracy and environmental apocalypse. We must unite to fight them — and not each other.
Editor’s note: This is the introduction to “Climate in Crisis: Who’s Causing It, Who’s Fighting It and How We Can Reverse It Before It’s Too Late,” by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. and Dick Russell.
“To greed, all nature is insufficient.” — Seneca
Long before it turned its attention to systematically destroying the planet, the carbon industry set its sights on destroying American democracy and on bulldozing our values.
The term “Deep State” is one of those toxic phrases that highlights and exacerbates the widening chasm between Democrats and Republicans. Ironically, polarization is a key strategic objective for the sinister cabal that the phrase describes.
Right-wing populists use the term Deep State to characterize the supposed authors of the cavalcade of social and economic demotions that have fatally wounded America’s dwindling middle class. The obliteration has been so systematic and complete that it seems obvious to them that it is planned.
In their view, a group of secretive aristocrats, led by George Soros and the late David Rockefeller, manipulate shadowy institutions like the Federal Reserve and the Council on Foreign Relations in order to shift wealth and power to billionaire elites, with the ultimate aim of achieving “World Government.”
To weaken the American character, these secretive aristocrats’ allies among the “Hollywood Elites” have deliberately cheapened our culture by infiltrating TV and film with sex and violence. These elites are purposefully undermining American democracy, subverting constitutional rights, and waging an economic and cultural war on Main Street America, our democracy, and national sovereignty.
Since all those cohorts have devoted energies to averting climate change, the global warming debate has become a prominent feature of these cosmologies. Decarbonization is seen as yet another attack on the U.S. economy, and a ploy for One-World Government.
Like every conspiracy theory, this one has nuggets of truth.
Democrats, meanwhile, dismiss talk of a Deep State as the ravings of deluded right-wing conspiracy theorists. They point out that Hollywood czars like Tom Hanks and Barbra Streisand are a great distance from real power while arguing that Wall Street itself pushed sex and violence onto our TV screens. Pornography, after all, sells sex.
David Rockefeller died in 2017, and the remaining Rockefeller family members have greatly diversified interests and little demonstrated appetite for One-World Government. Democrats point out that George Soros is 90 years old, and manages vast investments in oil and gas with annual profits that dwarf his relatively tiny contributions to climate change activism. His Council on Foreign Relations is an anemic think tank, its members mainly jockeying to burnish resumés and rub shoulders with a doddering Henry Kissinger. The council takes no position on foreign policy issues and mostly publishes informational white papers that gather dust.
But the Deep State does exist. It has already obliterated the middle class and has democracy on the ropes. The real power behind the curtain is a conglomeration of corporations — coal, oil, chemical, steel, and pharmaceutical, recently joined by telecom, Big Tech/Big Data –– all bound, in a web of corruption, to our global military-intelligence apparatus.
It is this collaboration of modern Robber Barons that is making war on democracy, civil rights, and the lower classes while driving our country down the road to plutocracy and environmental apocalypse.
This conglomeration has declared war on America’s democracy and freedoms. Anyone who doubts that the Deep State exists should read the myriad histories of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), including Tim Weiner’s “Legacy of Ashes,” David Talbot’s “The Devil’s Chessboard” and James Douglass’s “JFK and the Unspeakable.”
John D. Rockefeller laid the groundwork for the conglomeration with his ruthless drive for monopoly control of the world oil supply. (His company, Standard Oil — now ExxonMobil — controlled 90% of the U.S. oil supply). The pharmaceutical cartel is the offspring of Rockefeller’s U.S. petroleum and coal tar industries and Third Reich chemists, who were deeply incriminated in the Holocaust and the Nazi war effort.
Rockefeller gained controlling shares in IG Farben (now Bayer, the German chemical and pharmaceutical conglomerate). His philanthropy focused on his philosophy of promoting petroleum-based pharmaceuticals and marginalizing the previously popular alternative medicines: osteopathy, homeopathy, natural remedies, and plant medicines.
For decades, the Rockefeller family owned some 80% of the U.S. pharmaceutical industry. Today, the Rockefeller Empire — in tandem with JP Morgan Chase — continues to own half the pharmaceutical industry in the U.S.
John D. Rockefeller’s grandson, David, with his ties to the oil and pharmaceutical industries and international banking and his friendship with Allen Dulles, was certainly among the Deep State’s Grand Panjandrums.
David Rockefeller used his close relationship with the CIA, initially through Dulles, and his position as a director and then chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations, to wage war on nationalist movements and representative democracies around the globe whenever they threatened the profits of his oil, mineral, chemical, pharmaceutical or banking interests.
All of these histories reveal Big Carbon as the conspiracy’s center of gravity.
The CIA and the military nurtured a long cozy relationship with King Coal and Big Oil. Since the abolition of slavery, the Navy’s replacement of sailboat fleets with fossil fuel-driven transportation, and the introduction of petroleum-based pharmaceuticals, American wars have been, to a greater or lesser extent, strategic struggles over control of coal ports, shipping routes, and oil fields.
America’s first great foreign excursion was Cuba’s War of Liberation. In 1898, America’s Yellow Press appealed to the nation’s idealism to drum up popular support for U.S. intervention, purportedly to support Cuban revolutionaries in their struggle for independence from Spain. To create a pretext for intervention, Deep State militarists staged the “false flag” scuttling of the battleship, the USS Maine in Havana Harbor, and blamed the sinking on Spain.
Their true objective became clear soon after Cuba’s independence fighters achieved victory over Spain.
Deep State militarists robbed the new nation of its most important port, expropriating Guantanamo Bay as a Naval coal terminal. A century later, Guantanamo, the symbol of America’s abandonment of its revulsion for imperialism, became the situs for which America rebuffed its seminal revulsion against torture.
Today, Guantanamo Bay stands as a kind of “anti-Statue of Liberty” — a hemispheric symbol of the surrender of fundamental American values to the Deep State military-industrial complex, with its devouring hunger for carbon and its ambition for authoritarian control.
After Cuba, protecting American oil and coal resources and ports became a raison d’être for an endless parade of new American wars and interventions.
A nation’s political structure tends to reflect its economic organization. When major industries are owned and controlled by a small group of wealthy individuals, the nation itself becomes economically stratified and tyrannical.
Coal and oil are authoritarian industries. They are highly capitalized and rely on ruthless control of real estate and resources. While most nations declare that their oil resources are publicly owned, in practice, poorer citizens rarely share in petroleum profits. Large multinationals, frequently allied with local oligarchs, invariably and systematically find ways to steal and monopolize these resources.
The term “oil curse” describes the nearly universal dynamic by which the governments of nations or states with rich oil reserves invariably devolve into highly militarized and despotic organs that are brutal and dictatorial.
Oil-dependent economies generally foster giant wealth gaps between rich and poor and violent totalitarian governance. The strategic relevance of oil and steel makes these industries natural allies of the military and intelligence apparatus.
In 1954, the CIA’s director, Allen Dulles, overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran, after the country’s beloved Prime Minister, Mohammad Mossadegh — the first democratically elected head of state in Persia’s 4,000-year history — committed the “crime” of threatening to nationalize oil fields controlled by BP and Texaco. (Texaco had formerly been Dulles’s client at the white-shoe law firm, Sullivan & Cromwell.)
Dulles installed the Shah to rule Iran and to protect the financial interests of his petroleum company client. Seventy years later, the entire world is still suffering from the blowback of that coup. The Iran Hostage Crisis of 1979 (precipitated when David Rockefeller and his crony, Henry Kissinger, pressured President Jimmy Carter to host the deposed Shah of Iran in the U.S. in order to protect Chase Manhattan’s assets); the rise of militant Islam; the Afghanistan, Iraq and Syrian wars (which flooded Europe with displaced refugees, undermining Europe’s unity and democracies); and our continued enmity with Iran, a nation that, in every other respect, should be our closest Middle East ally — are all blowback from that anti-democratic coup.
The founders recognized that America could not be both an imperial power abroad and a constitutional democracy at home. It is a seminal axiom of American foreign policy that our democratic government should not embroil America in foreign wars. President John Quincy Adams summarized the consensus of the founders when he declared:
“[America] goes not abroad, in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher of the freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. She will commend the general cause by the countenance of her voice, and the benign sympathy of her example.”
But the American carbon titans successfully overwhelmed these qualms and deployed the U.S. military as their private army, expanding its reach to protect Big Carbon’s global interests.
Allen Dulles helped his oil-fueled Deep State cabal to engineer America’s departure from its traditional principle of non-intervention. My grandfather picked our family’s 60-plus-year fistfight with the CIA in 1954, when President Eisenhower appointed him to a commission, chaired by former President
The official tenet of American foreign policy was supporting the spread of democracy. Yet the Hoover Commission found that the CIA was working, in league with petroleum companies, in direct opposition to official U.S. State Department policy, and regularly engaged in conduct antithetical to U.S. values.
Following the thinking of President Adams, my grandfather believed that America could not be at once an imperial power and a constitutional democracy. He was angry and disgusted to learn that Dulles and his agency were overthrowing governments, disrupting elections, bribing politicians, and undermining democracy around the globe in service to Big Oil and mining companies, as well as industrial/chemical agriculture.
The CIA orchestrated changing other countries’ governments 72 times during the Cold War, affecting nearly one-third of the nations on Earth.
I was in Chile in 1973, during the coup d’état orchestrated by the CIA and David Rockefeller for the sole purpose of protecting U.S. telecom (ITT), banking (Chase), oil (Texaco), chemical (DuPont and Dow), food (PepsiCo Inc) and mining interests (Anaconda) — all threatened with nationalization by President Salvador Allende. I was fired upon — and nearly killed — by an army patrol as I struggled on foot across the Andes to Argentina. I was very conscious of the key role played by David Rockefeller and the U.S. Telecom behemoth ITT Corporation (International Telephone and Telegraph).
Strategic lust for oil and the need to protect oil infrastructure motivated most of the CIA’s interventions. CIA spooks and paramilitary units often worked hand-in-hand with mercenaries and private armies, which American oil companies paid, armed, and trained.
Foreign warlords and politicians, fattening on oil company payrolls, routinely sold out the interests of their own nations (and murdered their own citizens) in furtherance of petroleum company ambitions. They financed and trained tens of thousands of oil industry personnel throughout the Middle East as paramilitaries, to fight off the Soviets and destroy oil infrastructure to prevent its capture in the event of Soviet invasion.
According to biographer David Talbot, Dulles was incapable of distinguishing the U.S. national interests from the interests of his former oil industry clients. In fact, U.S. national interests took a distant back seat to shareholder profits.
My grandfather recommended the disbandment of the CIA’s “Plans” division. He feared that the dangerous alliance of military and intelligence apparatus with oil industry fat cats would have disastrous consequences for America’s democracy and our global reputation, potentially turning America into a National Security State. He recognized that the large oil corporations have no loyalty to America, much less to our core values.
A statement by Exxon CEO Lee Raymond, during a 1998 ExxonMobil meeting, confirmed my grandfather’s suspicions about the essential lack of patriotism among oil men: “I’m not a U.S. company,” stated Raymond, “and I don’t make decisions based on what is good for the U.S.”
It is no accident that the Deep State kingpin, Charles Koch (founder of Koch Industries, the largest privately owned oil company in the world), made his fortune by building refineries for the homicidal communist dictator Joseph Stalin. Koch and his sons deployed billions of ill-gotten dollars to create an infrastructure of Deep State think tanks like the Heritage Foundation, the Cato Institute, and the Competitive Enterprise Institute, tasking them with the job of creating the philosophical underpinnings for the domination of America’s democracy by corporations and militarists.
On my seventh birthday, January 17, 1961, three days before my uncle John F. Kennedy’s (JFK) inauguration as America’s 35th president, outgoing president Dwight D. Eisenhower delivered the greatest speech of his career, warning Americans against the Deep State, which he called the “military-industrial complex.”
Eisenhower cautioned that the cartel could destroy our democracy:
“This conjunction of an immense military establishment and a large arms industry is new in the American experience. The total influence — economic, political, even spiritual — is felt in every city, every statehouse, every office of the federal government… [W]e must not fail to comprehend its grave implications. Our toil, resources, and livelihood are all involved; so is the very structure of our society.”
Eisenhower went on:
“In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.”
Eisenhower cautioned that Americans must learn to recognize, and guard against, all the milestones of tyranny:
“We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of a huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.”
“On the same day as Eisenhower’s speech, just days before my uncle took the oath of office, Belgian intelligence spies — with the support of Allen Dulles’s CIA — murdered the Congo’s charismatic leader, Patrice Lumumba.
As a U.S. senator, JFK used his position as chair of the U.S. Senate Subcommittee on African Affairs to support Lumumba and other anti-colonial leaders. Dulles was disdainful of my uncle’s sympathies for African liberation movements and, in particular, his admiration for Lumumba.
Dulles wanted to commit this murder before JFK took office. The Congo ranked among the world’s richest nations measured by its mineral wealth and natural resources, including its abundant oil fields. U.S. and European mineral, and petroleum companies were salivating at the prospect of exploiting tribal tensions to cut the newly liberated nation into bite-sized parcels that they could easily devour and rule.
They knew Lumumba was the only Congolese leader with the charisma and popularity to unite all of Congo’s rival warring tribes.
Lumumba’s murder shocked and saddened my uncle. He would not live to learn of the CIA’s role in orchestrating that hit for Big Oil and the Deep State.
Beginning in 1958, Dulles had worked with Eisenhower’s bellicose vice president, Richard Nixon, plotting to oust Cuba’s newly ascended revolutionary leader, Fidel Castro, who earlier that year had deposed brutal dictator Fulgencio Batista and his mafia cronies.
Nixon and Dulles persuaded Texaco to shut down its critical Cuban refinery and United Fruit Company — another of Allen Dulles’s former clients — to cease exports of Cuban sugar, so as to crush their economy and destroy Castro’s revolutionary regime.
Castro and his lieutenant, Che Guevara, were avowed Marxists, but their revolutionary colleagues embraced a wide range of competing ideologies that were mainly democratic and anti-Batista.
The CIA’s preemptive strikes, bent on starving the tiny nation, forced Cuba to turn to Russia for financial help. The Soviets agreed to rescue the besieged Cubans by trading Russian oil for Cuban sugar.
The CIA retaliated with the aerial bombing of a Havana shopping center. That illegal CIA act of terror gave Castro the political strength to declare his new regime communist for the first time. He made the announcement at the funeral of the CIA’s victims.
In 1989, Castro told me, “The United States facilitated Cuba into embracing Marxism.”
When JFK denied the CIA’s request to transport the “Bay of Pigs” brigade in naval vessels, Dulles’s former client, United Fruit Company, provided the CIA with a fleet of ships to support the invasion. When Castro’s overwhelming forces predictably trapped the brigade on the beach at Playa Girón, JFK refused the CIA’s request for air support by U.S. forces.
Dulles had assured JFK that U.S. military intervention would, under no conditions, be necessary. JFK realized that Dulles and other CIA officials and military brass had lied to him. He told his closest advisors, “I want to splinter the CIA into a thousand pieces and scatter it to the winds.”
JFK fired Allen Dulles after the Bay of Pigs, but Dulles continued to steer the CIA remotely and would return to government in 1963 to lead the Warren Commission investigation of JFK’s death. He used that post to conceal the CIA’s deep involvement in JFK’s assassination.
My uncle and father spent their careers — and gave their lives — to the task of saving democracy from the Deep State cartel. They enraged Dallas oilmen by their efforts to revoke the Oil Depletion Allowance and other tax subsidies, which then provided corporate welfare worth $185 million, annually, in handouts to America’s petroleum corporations.”
‘Texas oil producers paid zero income tax on 27.5% of their taxable income. A handful of powerful Dallas oilmen, most notably Clint Murchison, H. L. Hunt, Sid Richardson, and D. H. Byrd, were making millions from the allowance. Byrd alone had a $30 million annual income (in the 1960s) and paid no federal taxes. These Welfare Cowboys all had close connections with the CIA.”
“Big Steel also had a natural alliance with the Pentagon. In 1962, JFK mediated a fierce wage dispute between the United Steelworkers Union and the 12 largest steel companies. The president intended to hold inflation in check by fighting the wage/price spiral. His delicate negotiations led to an extraordinary agreement: workers acquiesced to a wage freeze and the steel companies agreed to freeze steel prices.
Shortly after signing the agreement, U.S. Steel CEO, Roger Blough, came to the Oval Office to announce that Big Steel was committing a double-cross. The top six steel companies were violating the agreement and unilaterally raising prices by $6/ton (3.5 percent). Jack told Blough, “You are making a big mistake.” He then ordered the Pentagon to move shipbuilding contracts from the noncompliant companies to smaller companies that had not raised prices.
My father, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy (RFK), sent FBI agents to raid the big six steel company offices and to cart out their filing cabinets on dollies. His deputies told the steel executives to expect prosecutions on tax evasion and antitrust activities. It was the strongest pushback by a U.S. president against corporate power since Andrew Jackson fought the banks.
The Wall Street Journal denounced JFK for his naked power play against Big Business. Wall Street and the Deep State never forgave him. But that was only the beginning of Camelot’s war on the Deep State.”
“JFK defended Rachel Carson, whose book, “Silent Spring,” resulted in the banning of DDT, against Monsanto and the chemical conglomerates.
He sent Pentagon and CIA spooks into apoplexy when he refused to dispatch combat troops to Laos, Vietnam, or Cuba.
When he proposed détente with Khrushchev and Castro, Nelson Rockefeller accused JFK of treason. Jack signed the nuclear test ban treaty that the oil industry violently opposed — petroleum companies were America’s largest producers of uranium, and they feared that peace would undermine their business model.
My Uncle Jack died two months after signing the Atmospheric Test Ban treaty, and 14 weeks after signing National Security Order 267, which ordered all U.S. advisors out of Vietnam by December 1965.
JFK’s death saved hundreds of millions of dollars for Texas oilmen by permanently deferring his plan to repeal the Oil Depletion Allowance.
My father’s first instinct was that the CIA had murdered his brother. Less than two years later, Lyndon Baines Johnson ordered close to 250,000 U.S. combat troops into Vietnam, converting that country’s civil conflict into an American War, in which more than 58,000 Americans and millions of Vietnamese would die.”
“In 1968, my father died during a presidential campaign waged against the war machine. He promised he would end the Vietnam War on the day he took his oath of office. He told his writer friend, Pete Hamill, that he meant to break up the CIA. Three weeks before his murder, he publicly acknowledged that he intended to reopen the investigation of his brother’s assassination.
My father’s death was one of five great national tragedies –– the assassinations of JFK and Martin Luther King Jr.; the Vietnam War; 9/11; and COVID-19 — that allowed the men who want permanent war to transform America, which was once the world’s exceptional democracy, into a National Security State.”
JFK and RFK dedicated their careers to preserving American democracy and idealism. One of their defining struggles was against the Deep State and in particular the clawing power of Big Carbon. My own career has continued this tradition.
In the 1970s, Exxon, formerly Standard Oil, employed the world’s most brilliant carbon scientists to understand every stage of oil production. The company prided itself on knowing more about the fate of the carbon molecule than any individual, corporation, or government on Earth. Internal documents, created in the years following my father’s death and recently made public, show that those scientists warned Exxon that business as usual would melt the polar ice caps, cause sea levels to rise, and trigger cataclysmic climate change.
Exxon CEO Raymond described “so-called global climate change” as “the issue that perhaps poses the greatest long-term threat to our industry.”
Rather than change its business model to save humanity, Exxon and its carbon cronies invested half a billion dollars in a four-decade campaign of lies and deception to gull the public into believing the absurd: that climate change is a hoax.
A century earlier, one of my father’s favorite poets, Rudyard Kipling, described such deception as truth being “twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools.”
Big Oil’s Deep State cronies –– the intelligence apparatus, the military-industrial complex and some mainstream media who take cues from oil and automobile advertisers –– abetted this venal campaign.
Two forces drive democracy: money and political intensity. The Deep State has money, but its mission — to further enrich and empower the wealthiest 0.001 percent — is not a potent vessel for populism. Instead, it relies on so-called “wedge” or “culture war” issues to recruit foot soldiers. Steel, Oil, and Pharma deploy front groups and PR flaks, using all the alchemies of demagoguery: dog-whistle racism, bigotry against immigrants and people of color, and invocations to patriotism and Christianity, in order to engage those whites who still feel alienated by the Civil Rights laws of the 1960s.
The Wall Street fat cats, the power brokers, and PR flaks talk openly about “gulling the rubes” in their rural redoubts, winning their loyalties with the palaver of abortion and the Three Gs: God, guns, and gays. In the words of Christian Coalition President Ralph Reed, “They write the checks, and they get the joke.”
These cohorts have used their money and political power to engineer for themselves obscene subsidies and tax breaks. (Exxon, the wealthiest company on Earth during the 1990s, paid virtually no federal taxes.) According to the World Bank, Big Carbon receives annual subsidies of $5.4 trillion globally and $655 billion in the U..S — more than we spend on our military and 10 times our education budget.
Using political clout, the carbon incumbents have written the laws that regulate energy in America to reward the dirtiest, filthiest, most tyrannical, and warmongering fuels from Hell, rather than the cheap, clean, green, democratic, and patriotic fuels from Heaven.
The carbon cronies have made climate change a defining feature of that conversation. Flipping the narrative, they portray climate change advocacy as a sinister effort to establish a world government and rob America of its economic independence and sovereignty.
Big Carbon’s big lie is that any change in the status quo would raise gas prices and deplete middle-class jobs.
I’ve spent 40 years fighting to stop the oil and coal titans from contaminating our water, our air, and our children with toxins, arsenic, benzene, PAHs, the mercury that has poisoned every freshwater fish in America, and the carbon that now poses an existential threat to our planet. I have litigated these issues across the Americas.
As a partner of the clean tech investment firm, Vantage Point Venture Partners, and advisor to Stanwool Energy, I was involved in building transmission lines and generation infrastructure for clean, democratic energy from wind and solar, including the two largest solar plants in North America.
I’ve been deeply involved in building and deploying renewable energy infrastructure that competes with oil and coal. Vantage Point was the earliest investor in Tesla and the force behind Ivanpah, the world’s largest solar thermal plant. I know the science and the economics of carbon energy backward and forwards.
Predatory industries always employ the same playbook. Big Tobacco swore smoking didn’t cause cancer. Monsanto convinced us that DDT and glyphosate were harmless. Pharma lied to persuade doctors and the public that opioids were not addictive, that Vioxx did not cause heart attacks, that vaccines are undeniably safety tested, and that the autism epidemic is an illusion. They use the same phony (tobacco) scientists and mercenary biostitutes to gin up fraudulent studies that sow doubt, paralyze policy reform, and give political cover to their tame politicians.
They all work together in lockstep, coordinated by their Capitol Hill trade associations, lobbying firms, captive agencies, and paid-off politicians to increase authoritarian control, to transform all of us into mindless consumers, to shift middle-class wealth to billionaire plutocrats and to liquidate our “purple mountain majesties” and our entire planet.
They enrich themselves by impoverishing the rest of us. They capture regulators, seduce reporters, corrupt science and pay off lawmakers to subvert democracy. They employ state-of-the-art propaganda, psychological warfare, and all the formulaic alchemies of demagoguery to divide us.
For 40 years, I’ve worked with the Left on conservation, climate, energy, and the environment. In recent years, in my battles against Pharma, I have also worked with many right-wing allies, including Trump supporters.
Big Oil, King Coal, and Big Pharma are all titans of the Deep State cartel of deception and authoritarian control. In its most audaciously ruthless betrayal, this cartel has engineered a suicide pact for humanity and our planet. They have brought us to the eve of Armageddon. Their business plan poses an existential threat to humanity.
They have declared war on democracy and personal freedom. They are the Four Horsemen — the apocalyptic forces of ignorance and greed, pestilence and fear.
Today we are living in the beleaguered world that the Deep State’s greed and negligence has created –– the science-fiction nightmare that these criminals devised. The glaciers are melting on every continent, threatening the food and water supplies for billions of people. The ice caps are shrinking, their meltwater swelling the oceans and flooding coastal cities. Fisheries are collapsing globally.
Disease, drought, fire, famine, and flood are transforming the planet into scenes reminiscent of Biblical accounts of the Apocalypse.
This is not a hoax. You don’t need a science degree to know the planet is warming any more than you need a degree to know that the nation’s autism epidemic is real. In both cases, you need to be deliberately blind to ignore the evidence.
Within the short time span since the first edition of this book (then titled “Horsemen of the Apocalypse”) appeared in 2017, the pace of climate change has accelerated beyond what anyone had then foreseen. July 2019 became Earth’s hottest month since record-keeping began in 1880.
I live on the West Coast now, where the fire seasons in California are two months longer than they historically have been. Twice in the past two years, my family has had to evacuate our home, in an area that was never part of the traditional fire zone.
My family has a summer home on Cape Cod. Two 100-year storms struck our town over the past two years, destroying a pier that had withstood every storm for a century.
These are my personal harbingers of the predictable fallout of climate change: storms on steroids, droughts, famine, the disappearance of the ice caps and the glaciers on every continent, the spread of insect-borne tropical diseases, threatening civilization and humanity.
Wildfires raged across Alaska, the Arctic, Greenland, and Siberia; Australian wildfires devastated that continent; California wildfires are 500% larger than they were in the 1970s; the burning of the Amazon is leading to a cascading collapse of natural systems across the planet. In the world’s second-largest rainforest, the Congo, 50%more fires burned than in the Amazon.
The Canadian Arctic permafrost is thawing 70 years sooner than had been predicted, and a United Nations report warns that at least 30% of the Northern Hemisphere’s permafrost will melt during our children’s lifetime, creating feedback loops that will release billions of tons of methane, the worst of the greenhouse gases.
In 2019, sea ice within 150 miles of Alaska’s shoreline completely melted away for the first time in recorded history. The state’s largest city, Anchorage, is baked in temperatures of 90 degrees Fahrenheit. Salmon died of heat stress, and levels of shellfish poisoning soared. Then, the Greenland ice sheet lost a mind-bending 12.5 billion tons of water in a single day. That ice sheet contained enough frozen water to raise sea levels around the world by 20 feet.
Hundred-year flooding events are now a regular occurrence in the U.S., especially in the Northeast and Southeast. Superstorms and rising sea levels will displace as many as 280 million people around the world. A U.S. report warns that 21 beach towns — including Miami Beach, Galveston, Atlantic City, and Key West — will soon be underwater.
Indonesia is already relocating the millions who live in its capital city of Jakarta. When I visit our Great Lakes Waterkeepers, I see steadily rising water levels that have put the Great Lakes communities in crisis. Both Detroit and Miami mayors have declared states of emergency as rising waters threaten their cities.
Even as floods are drowning our great municipalities, meteorologists are predicting megadroughts on a scale last witnessed in medieval times. During a 2019 heat wave that swept across Europe, 1,500 people died from heat stroke in France alone. Desert heat will parch the U.S. Southwest within decades.
The United Nations estimates that two billion people are already facing moderate to severe food insecurity, primarily due to the warming planet. Warmer oceans and a hotter, wetter atmosphere provide steroids to storms. I visited with Bahamas Waterkeepers before and after Hurricane Dorian, which, in 2019, wiped out thousands of housing compounds and businesses in Grand Bahamas. Many of these had taken Bahamian families three generations or more to create.
In August 2019, with global atmospheric CO2 levels already at 415 parts-per-million (ppm), Iceland citizens held a funeral for the once massive Okjokull glacier and erected a plaque that reads:
“A letter to the future. Ok[jokull] is the first Icelandic glacier to lose its status as a glacier. In the next 200 years, all our glaciers are expected to follow the same path. This monument is to acknowledge that we know what is happening and what needs to be done. Only you know if we did it.”
Nowadays, every week seems like a new chapter from the Doomsday Book of Revelation, but I will close with a warning penned by a desert prophet a thousand years earlier:
The earth lies defiled
under its inhabitants;
for they have polluted the land, transgressed the laws,
violated the statutes,
broken the everlasting covenant.
Therefore a curse devours the earth,
and its inhabitants suffer for their guilt;
therefore the inhabitants of the earth are scorched,
and few men are left …
— Isaiah 24:5-6
If we are to avoid the curse, we need to call out the authors of the sinful pollution. As the late activist musician Utah Phillips observed more than a decade ago:
“The earth is not dying, it is being killed, and those who are killing it have names and addresses.”
The Deep State profits from our division and employs so-called “bourbon strategy” techniques to keep Americans in internecine struggles — black against white, urban vs. rural, Christian against Muslim, right against left, blue collar vs. white collar, Republican against Democrat — to distract us all from waging class war against the Deep State Elites. The term should, instead, unite us. “ AMERICAN VALUES: LESSONS I LEARNED FROM MY FAMILY. Bobby’s book that I read during my visit to his home Aug 2020.

With environmental lawyer Robert Kennedy Jr. declaring his Independence from the Democratic Party, Americans should beware of perhaps the greatest smear campaign against a candidate in modern U.S. history. While the mainstream media has undoubtedly smeared candidates before, this instance is unique to the media’s treatment of others’ race to the White House. At a time when a candidate poses a very real threat to both the left and the right, both sides of the political aisle will be unleashing slander after slander. Cutting through the mainstream media’s twisted narratives will be one of Mr. Kennedy’s most significant challenges.
While right-wing media previously was broadly supportive of Kennedy’s bid to challenge President Biden, they have suddenly turned on a dime as Kennedy now also threatens former President Trump. So how exactly has the media changed their tunes, and what kind of slanders have the media attributed to Kennedy so far? Not only that, but how will he garner enough support to win during this tremendous smear campaign from both sides?
Immediately after Mr. Kennedy announced he was running as an Independent, Fox News put out an article mocking him. “I’m a Kennedy from a Democrat family. But I’m running for president as an Independent,” the title read. Fox News didn’t stop there, however, as the clearest example of the 180 made by right-wing outlets came from Fox News host Sean Hannity.
On September 14, Sean Hannity did an interview with Kennedy where he seemed very favorable of the presidential hopeful pursuing a third-party path. He asked Kennedy, “My question to you is why stay with the Democratic Party? Would you consider a third party?” However, on October 11, just days after Kennedy announced he was leaving the Democratic Party, Hannity suddenly seemed to have a change of tone. “I hope you don’t mind, but I did a little research on you; you’re pretty liberal.” He then goes on the offensive, citing various claims, and then concludes by asking, “So why didn’t [the Democratic party] even want to allow you to compete? Cause that’s a pretty liberal of a record as anybody.” Kennedy then responded, “Do you want to talk about my positions, Sean, or do you want to read talking points from the Trump campaign?” Despite Hannity claiming they were not talking points, saying, “I do my own research,” that doesn’t appear to be the case in this instance. Every claim Hannity accused Kennedy of can be found almost word for word on the GOP’s official website, which was also posted from the X account “RNCResearch.”
Highlighted are the claims Hannity read off during the program. It is important to note that the majority of the claims from the GOP regarding Mr. Kennedy are either outdated, misleading, or false beliefs attributed to him.
Kennedy himself has talked about how he has developed more of an open mind over the past several years on numerous occasions.
“In a two-sided conflict, both parties have a kind of mutual dependency. Each side depends on the other to define themselves as good guys in contrast to the other side, who of course, are the bad guys… As I’ve surrendered my attachment to taking sides, I’ve been able to listen with new ears to people with whom I disagree, and see solutions that would otherwise have been invisible.” – Robert Kennedy Jr.
Kennedy used the border crisis as an example of how his views have changed during his Independence speech. He explained that while he used to think those who were against open borders were perhaps xenophobes and racists, he has realized he was wrong. “My views changed as I spoke to border patrol officers, to local officials, to local sheriffs, aid workers and to the migrants themselves,” Kennedy said. “I saw that no one party has a monopoly on wisdom, and none of the simplistic narratives actually contain the whole truth.” Since he has gone down and actually visited the border, he has been a strong proponent of tightening border security, though wants the process of becoming a citizen to become much easier.
Mr. Kennedy also made a much more elaborate statement on X about the fact his views have changed over the years.
The X post not only talks about how someone’s views should be allowed to change over several decades, but also is a reminder that former President Trump was a staunch liberal by most metrics a couple of decades ago. From 2001-2007, Trump donated thousands of dollars to Hillary Clinton. He was also “very pro-choice” according to his own description in an interview with Meet the Press in 1999. Mr. Kennedy also called out the former President for not owning up to his changed record by posting on X on November 3, “We both loved Hillary Clinton. The only difference is I’m not pretending I never did.” It would likely be an enormous double standard for those who supported Trump during the 2016 election cycle to now turn around and say that Kennedy couldn’t have had any of his views change over several decades either.
Another example of a falsehood attributed to Mr. Kennedy was when the New York Post came out with an article titled, “RFK Jr. comes out in favor of reparations, carving out lane to Biden’s left.” The idea that Kennedy supports reparations, the direct cash payment given to a community for mistreatment, is simply false. Kennedy decided to address this claim on X immediately, saying, “The program will make capital and resources available to the poorest and most desperate communities in America… Yes, because Black people are disproportionately poor, this program will benefit them disproportionately. But the criteria will be indicators like poverty, addiction rates, violence, etc. Not skin color.”
Typically when people are talking about reparations, they are referring to the idea of repaying a community in the form of cash handouts. If one is to describe this policy of Kennedy’s as reparations, then it would only be consistent to say that former President Trump also supports reparations. The former president proposed Opportunity Zones, economic help for low-income communities, hundreds of millions in funding for historically black colleges, and much more. This is something that he was promising to expand in his second term as well. If this is the thought process taken on, then that only leads to a conclusion that suggests President Biden is the only 2024 presidential candidate who is against reparations.
This switch-up from right-wing media is important to shed light on as it shows a clear and collected effort to smear the environmental lawyer. While many on the right previously seemed to be in favor of Kennedy’s bid as a Democrat, the moment he became a threat to the Republican party, the tone from those on the conservative aisle in the media changed. This all comes just days after a member of the Trump team said they are going to be “dropping napalm after napalm on [Kennedy’s] head reminding the public of his liberal views.”
While conservative media and insiders have turned on their heels to attack Mr. Kennedy, the Democratic Party has continued to remain largely silent on Kennedy’s bid for the White House. Left-wing media outlets, however, have continued on with their smear efforts as they had been.
Upon reporting on Kennedy’s Independence speech, Politico described Kennedy as an “anti-vaccine advocate.” This attribution to him, however, is false. Many left-wing publications have been describing Kennedy as an anti-vaxxer despite the fact Mr. Kennedy has always made it clear he is not anti-vaccine. Over the years, Kennedy has spent time trying to inform people of the potential harms of some vaccines and has called for better vigorous testing to be done on them. Regardless, outlets describing Mr. Kennedy as anti-vaccine is only an attempt to silence him; policy-wise, nothing would come from such a belief. The only things Mr. Kennedy has said he would do as President in relation to vaccines is push for better testing and ban pharmaceutical companies from advertising on television. It is important to note that all of Mr. Kennedy’s children are vaccinated as well.
Meanwhile, The New York Times when reporting on Kennedy’s announcement stated that he has alienated his family in part by “his embrace of far-right political figures.” This is stated as if it is a bad thing to reach across the aisle for a common purpose or to engage in open dialogue. What many may have forgotten is that Mr. Kennedy’s uncle, Edward Kennedy, may be the best example of engaging in the same acts.
“During weekends at Cape Cod, my uncle (Edward Kennedy) would bring home people who were his political rivals… I looked at those people and I saw Darth Vader. And I would say to Teddy, why are you making these friendships?… And he always said to me, “As much as I love our country, they love our country the same. We all believe in our country. We need to be able to talk to each other.” And that allowed him to become the most productive senator in the United States history. I want to do the same thing with my presidency.” – Robert Kennedy Jr.
The onslaught of left-wing establishment bias does not stop there, however. In NBC’s reporting of Kennedy’s speech, the article largely misrepresents how the Kennedy family feels about his campaign. “The rest of the Kennedy family, most of whom remain committed Democrats, have been generally critical of ‘Bobby’s’ campaign,” the article states. The wording suggests that Kennedy’s family at large strongly opposes his candidacy, which is simply untrue. According to an article by Politico, about 120 Kennedy family members attend the Kennedy’s Thanksgiving. If 120 family members are close enough for all of them to have Thanksgiving together, it is absurd to suggest that they all disagree with him when only 5% have spoken out. It is also highly doubtful that every family member would agree with everything someone believed if one were to run for political office, let alone a family as big as the Kennedys.
While the media would like people to believe that more Kennedy family members denounce him than support him, the opposite is actually true. Several of Kennedy’s family members have shown public support for him, including children, in-laws, cousins, and more.
It is also important to note that Mr. Kennedy’s daughter-in-law, Amaryllis Fox, is now also his campaign manager. Amaryllis is an author and former CIA officer who has worked on several documentaries and spoken out against the CIA since she left. Mrs. Fox wrote on X that she resigned from the CIA after realizing she was too “relegated to siloed and isolated work to manage the impact of my objections and eventually realized that what good I could do in such a sealed stove-pipe was too limited to remain.” She says that before signing on to be Kennedy’s campaign manager she was working on a documentary series showing that the CIA was involved with the assassination of slain President John F. Kennedy, though has since put it on pause to focus on Kennedy’s campaign.
With what seems to be ramping up to be the most extensive smear campaign against the son of the late Attorney General, how can Kennedy break through all the noise?
The answer comes down to two things: Kennedy speaking everywhere he can, and you. Mr. Kennedy is making a wise choice by going on all the outlets he can, even ones that will likely smear him as Fox News did. By doing this, rather than allowing the media to create unchallenged and false narratives for their viewers, Kennedy is able to speak to the viewers directly about his beliefs to better combat such disinformation.
While Kennedy does everything that he can to get his message known, he also needs the American people to spread the message about what he truly stands for. The more that people hear the truth about Kennedy, the more it will not only combat false narratives, but also help people view him as a viable candidate.
Some don’t view Kennedy as a legitimate option due to outsiders from the political parties in presidential elections being unsuccessful in modern history. However, Kennedy’s support as an Independent before he even announced was polled at around 16%, with 25% saying they would at least somewhat likely vote for him. Within less than one month, he grew to polling at 22% nationally, and 24% among swing states. He also now qualifies to be on the debate stage, making it the first time a candidate outside the two parties has qualified since businessman Ross Perot in 1992.
As Kennedy’s support grows, so does his viability in the minds of voters. The fact of the matter is that this is a three-way race, and the sooner that voters understand they wouldn’t be throwing away their vote to some outsider candidate by supporting him, the better. It’s a domino effect; the more people that support him, in turn, will create twice as many more supporters.
While it would be unprecedented in the modern United States for someone outside the two parties to win, it is also an unprecedented period, as the likely choices from the two parties are historically unpopular. So, who knows? After all, Argentina just elected the first-ever Libertarian president in the world, a candidate outside of their two political parties.
