RFK Jr. Will be Launching His Campaign Next Week With A Major Address in Boston
Please Consider Attending This Historic Event
Note from Pierre Kory: I consider RFK Jr. a friend; from knowing him personally, I believe he is the real deal. He wants the best for this entire country and hasn't been caught up in the madness which has taken over the Democratic party some of us used to call home.
I believe many of us must attend his opening campaign event in Boston, MA, next Wednesday, April 19th, at 10 a.m. (the information for the event can be found here). I am going and hope to see you there! Note it is the same day as the famous Battle at Lexington and Concord, a.k.a “The Shot Heard ‘Round the World” which was preceded by Paul Revere’s midnight ride to warn the colonial militia that the “British were coming.” Also recall that our country was born by men fighting tyranny. And that’s what RFK Jr. has always been about, fighting corporate tyranny.
RFK Jr. running in this campaign will bring attention to our nation's most critical issues. If we can have a large showing at his opening event, it will force the media also to cover these topics throughout the campaign and amplify them so they can reach the general public.
Because of the importance of this moment, I requested A Midwestern Doctor, who authors The Forgotten Side of Medicine, to write a brief guest post on RFK Jr.'s run:
One of the depressing things about politics is how fake everything is now. Politicians routinely adopt the idea and message that fits the needs of the current political climate even if they blatantly contradict their previous positions and behaviors (Tucker Carlson recently did a popular segment that provides one of the best illustrations I have seen of this behavior).
Because of this, you can expect most politicians (especially those supported by the corporate media) to refrain from honoring any promises they made while campaigning that conflict with those of large corporate interests. Honest politicians are few and far between, and everyone is searching for them in these challenging times.
I believe RFK Jr. fits that mold because of what my friends who know him directly have told me and because RFK Jr. has a very long track record of doing the right thing and (often successfully) fighting against corporate interests that are abusing the American public. Additionally, because of his family background, he is someone who could unite the country, something which is essential now due to how deeply divided we are as a nation.
In my opinion, the primary reason RFK Jr. is running is to have a platform to bring a few critical concepts to the awareness of the American public, which no prominent politician is currently speaking out about. Those issues are as follows:
1. The catastrophic consequences our children are facing due to the out-of-control childhood vaccine program (which is both dangerous and unnecessary). Consider for a moment this chart produced by RFK Jr.’s organization, the Children’s Health Defense.
Chronic illnesses are widespread amongst children today that virtually did not exist 30 years ago and directly correlate to the increasing uptake of vaccinations. It's hard to put into words the magnitude of this catastrophe or its costs to society. Sadder still, many conditions, such as the variety of other debilitating autoimmune disorders childhood vaccinations cause, are not even included in the chart.
2. RFK Jr. fully understands the scope of the COVID-19 fiasco and knows how to bring home the catastrophe many of us have witnessed to each voter. The issue is bubbling near the surface, and it is ready to go viral with the correct stimulus. More importantly, he also knows how to link these events to what has also happened with childhood vaccines and make the public motivated to do something about both of them.
3. The central problem underlying all the issues we face now is regulatory capture, where corporations buy out government regulators. Once this corruption occurs, rather than the regulators preventing bad behavior by predatory corporations, they actively work to shield them and instead target those corporations' competitors (e.g., independent physicians trying to treat COVID-19 with off-patent medications). I've tried to show how this has happened in branches of the government (e.g., in the CDC, the FDA, the NIH, and the entire H.H.S.), but in reality, I've only scratched the surface of this issue, and as years go by it keeps on getting worse.
It's sad, but this satirical clip, in many ways, describes where things are currently at:
RFK Jr. has spent his entire career fighting against regulatory capture. Before taking up the vaccine safety issue (which he suffered significant backlash for doing), he was a famous and highly regarded environmental lawyer who fought to keep corporations from polluting communities. Environmental litigation is a highly challenging field to succeed in (because the deck is stacked so much in the polluter’s favor), but he nonetheless was successful. This work forced him to continually confront regulatory capture, and that experience has allowed him to later call it out and fight against it as an advocate for vaccine safety.
Given that most people are not even aware of “regulatory capture,” it is critical that someone can give a voice to it as it affects so many aspects of our life.
4. It is very possible the most crucial issue facing us today is the federal government attempting to introduce a digital currency (I and others suspect the rumors of the dollar’s demise as the world’s reserve currency is being used to push it through). If a digital currency is enacted, many things and freedoms we take for granted go out the door. I hesitate to say this, but I believe its adoption could be the turning point that marks the decline of the American Republic into a technocratic dictatorship (similar to how Caesar, Crassus, and Pompey were responsible for shifting the Roman Republic to an empire).
Presently RFK Jr. is one of the only people speaking out against this:
We are in a very unusual political climate. Specifically:
•There is presently no strong candidate in the Democratic party who can grab the spotlight, and much of the Democratic electorate is disgusted with the direction their party has gone in and want the party to go back to its roots. Because of this, if RFK Jr. can build up momentum from the moment he launches his campaign, he will have to be part of the conversation. The media has tacitly admitted this since the moment RFK Jr. filed his candidacy, hit pieces against him for being an “anti-vaxxer,” immediately appeared in numerous mainstream publications.
•A significant portion of the Republican base agrees with many or all four of these issues. Since Trump has such an enormous lead in the primary polling, many members of the Republican electorate can afford to jump parties to support RFK Jr. in the primaries (as Trump will win the primaries irrespective of their votes) before voting for Trump in the general election.
•The public is extremely upset about the COVID-19 vaccines. For example, in this poll from late December, 49% of Americans thought the COVID-19 vaccines were causing many unexplained deaths, and 28% reported that they knew someone they thought had died from a vaccine. That is huge and something I do not believe any degree of propaganda can gaslight the population into ignoring. So, if someone speaks out publicly on the issue and has a record to back it up, people will listen.
Because of these factors, I think RFK Jr. has a very good shot of becoming a serious contender in the primaries, being repeatedly interviewed, and being present in each presidential debate. Since he is a lawyer and the truth is on his side, he will move the issue forward whenever the vaccine subject is brought up, regardless of how hostile the interviewer is.
If you would like to know more about my thoughts about RFK Jr.’s run, they can be viewed here:
Since I entered medicine and saw firsthand the harm vaccines did to children around me, which almost all of my colleagues were blind to, like many before me who could also see it, I have desperately wanted to do something to change this paradigm. Unfortunately, while some awareness was brought to the subject, we were powerless to stop the proliferation of more and more dangerous vaccines.
Because this has been allowed to run unchecked, we’ve seen a catastrophic decline in the health and vitality of our species. I’ve now lost count of how many mothers I’ve spoken to who told me they decided not to vaccinate one child and couldn’t believe how many different diseases they thought were normal the unvaccinated child didn’t have. Similarly, I can often immediately identify unvaccinated children, and it makes me very sad their vibrancy is the exception rather than the rule now.
Most of the time, when something unbelievable happens, it builds on a problem simmering in the background, which almost everyone ignored. If something had been done to address the childhood vaccine catastrophe we’ve watched unfold over the decades (especially after it kicked into overdrive in 1986 because Fauci brokered a deal that gave the manufacturers immunity from their products harming or killing children), the COVID-19 vaccines would never have happened.
What we’ve watched unfold with the COVID-19 vaccines is a tragedy beyond words and shows what happens when a greedy industry that has captured its regulators is allowed to run unchecked. At the same time, the events were so out of line that much of the public is finally becoming aware of the whole vaccine disaster, and we have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do something about this entire issue.
If there is any way you can make it to RFK Jr.’s opening event (or have friends near MA who can), please consider doing so. We need to do something to fix this, and because of how the media works, this is a very concrete step each of us can take.
As an additional bonus, Steve Kirsch will be there, so you can meet him as well. :)
