For a long while, it appeared that Joe Biden would have no primary challengers, but now the son of RFK has decided to throw his hat into the ring for whatever reason. Maybe because he does not believe Biden hiding in his basement, will work this time around. Or he could just believe that the American people are fed up with high inflation and low credibility among world leaders and could send him to the Oval Office.
Kennedy’s father was assassinated by Sirhan Sirhan when Jr was just a boy as he was running for the White House. His Uncle, John Fitzgerald Kennedy was president. His father was JFK’s U.S. Attorney General. Kennedy is not a dyed-in-the-wool fanatic like the rest of the Democrats and that could be an advantage during the primaries. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but the establishment will not allow him to win. Plus the Democrats have super delegates whose vote has nothing to do with the primaries. That is what killed Hillary in 2008 as the super delegates lined up for Obama.
Sister Toldjah described a contentious exchange between Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), Chairman of the House Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, and Rep. Daniel Goldman (D-NY) during a recent subcommittee hearing:
“We’re here talking about Twitter. Twitter,” Goldman whined. “And even with Twitter, you cannot find actual evidence of any direct government censorship of any lawful speech. And when I say lawful, I mean non-criminal speech because plenty of speech is non-criminal.”
Jordan countered him with the following remarks:
“I’d ask unanimous consent to enter into the record the following email from Clark Humphrey, Executive Office of the Presidency, White House office, Jan. 23, 2021, that’s the Biden administration, 4:39 a.m., ‘Hey, folks,’ … this goes to Twitter… ‘Hey, folks wanted to’ — they use the term Mr. Goldman just used — ‘wanted to flag the below tweet, and then wondering if we can get moving on the process for having it removed, ASAP.”
Rep. Daniel Goldman (who bought a congressional seat) says "you cannot find actual evidence of any direct government censorship of lawful speech."

And, perhaps his worst sin, Kennedy had the temerity to challenge Dr. Anthony Fauci, writing a 2021 book highly critical of the former NIAID director and chief medical advisor to the president:
Kennedy released a book in 2021, “The Real Anthony Fauci,” in which he accused the U.S.’s top infectious disease doctor of assisting in “a historic coup d’etat against Western democracy” and promoted unproven COVID-19 treatments such as ivermectin, which is meant to treat parasites, and the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine.
Kennedy’s advocacy prompted his association with unsavory insurrection-y types, as well.
His push against the COVID-19 vaccine has linked him at times with anti-democratic figures and groups. Kennedy has appeared at events pushing the lie that the 2020 presidential election was stolen and with people who cheered or downplayed the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
