Why RFK Jr will Probably Be America’s Next President
So far, there have been only two national U.S. pollings about the “Favorable” and “Unfavorable” ratings by America’s registered voters, regarding announced and possible though as-yet unannounced U.S. Presidential candidates, that included as an option Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who announced his candidacy for the Democratic Party’s nomination, on 18 April 2023. (At least two other pollings have been done that excluded his name from the listed options.) Each of those two pollings was done by the Harvard-CAPS-Harris polling organization, and sampled 2,000+ registered voters, the first of them being taken in June, and the second one being in July. Both times, only one of the many listed announced and unannounced candidates scored a stellar-high net favorable rating, it was +21% both times, and that person was RFK Jr. (Despite this, when the Economist/YouGov Poll sampled 1,500 U.S. registered voters during 26-29 August 2023, they excluded his name from among the ones that were listed for the respondents to rate, and this is remarkable, since he was already known to have been by far the highest-rated person in each of those two prior pollings about this.)
Both of those Harvard-CAPS-Harris poll-results are described and linked-to here.
In the July Harvard-CAPS-Harris poll, the second, third, and fourth highest net-rated candidates were Vivek Ramaswamy +34%-18%=+16%, Tim Scott +33%-22%=10%, and Elon Musk +44%-35%=+9%. Trump was at -4%, and Biden at -14%.
In the June one, they were both Musk and Scott +9%, and Ramaswamy +8%. Trump was -3%, and Biden -11%.
(In the August Economist/YouGov poll, of the names that the majority of the voters knew anything about, the top-rated ones were Scott at -1% and Ramaswamy at -8%. Perhaps as they were becoming better-known, they were losing not gaining net support.)
What explains the extraordinarily high respect (or perhaps even love) that Americans have for RFK Jr.?
The CNBC cable TV channel on the economy is owned and controlled by the Democratic Party billionaire Brian Roberts, and is one of the few liberal mainstream U.S. news-media to have interviewed RFK Jr., which was headlined on August 30th, “Watch CNBC’s full interview with Democratic Presidential Nominee Robert F. Kennedy Jr.”. By September 8th, it had 337,725 views and 3,745 comments. Here were the “Top Comments” (the most liked):
A real president
Democratic party will never let him run, can you imagine if they let him debate Biden? There is no comparison, RFK speaks so much sense and exactly what this country needs.
It’s rare to find a candidate that I believe, genuinely cares about the country and its people.
I’m happy to see mainstream media giving this man a platform to speak! Other mainstreams should follow!
Shout out to CNBC for an actual fair interview. I didn’t know the mainstream media was capable of that anymore. Thank you!
The American people deserve/ have the right!, to see what choices they have in any Democratic election.
Whether it be between two Democrats two Republicans or a Democrat versus Republican etc!
Mr. Kennedy most definitely has my vote in 2024! Love ️ his intelligent responses. He talks to the lower to middle class, we are struggling. Food, gas, rent, mortgages, taxes have sky rocketed, especially since Covid. Biden needs to stop sending Billions and Billions to Ukraine. Ridiculous! We need those Billions and Billions for our own people !
It’s so refreshing to listen to an intelligent politician who is not owned by corporate interests
Love that he is talking about real issues, and real solutions.
The Fox News cable TV channel is owned and controlled by the Republican Party billionaire Rupert Murdoch, and has interviewed this Democratic Party candidate many times (perhaps simply because he hates Biden; Murdoch is famously partisan). They did so on August 29th, headlining “Jesse Watters interviews RFK Jr from New York’s Central Park”. By September 6th, it had 243,829 views and 13,640 comments. Here were the “Top Comments” (the most liked):
I have a lot of respect for RFK Jr. He’s what real Democrats used to be
This is the interview I’ve been waiting for! Thank you Jesse for doing this! It’s crazy that he’s a Democrat, but FOX is the only one that will talk with him.
As a veteran, RFK jr is the best candidate of my lifetime. The Dem Party of my youth was mostly a party of peace and free speech, and bodily autonomy. Now, it is a party of Wall Street, forever wars, censorship, lockdowns and forced vaccinations. RFK jr is going to keep rising in the polls. The US needs better leaders in both parties.
Thank you, RFK Jr. and Jesse for allowing us to actually see & understand this. I’m not a Democrat. I have much respect for RFK Jr.
RFK Jr is a humble man, who truly cares about not only the security and welfare of our country and its citizens, but humanity as a whole. He actually walks what he talks.
Thank you for airing an interview with RFK Jr. If you keep this up, I may have to stop avoiding and badmouthing Fox News. As a centrist, I’m really impressed with RFK Jr so far. I hope there is a longer length continuation of this interview.
Whatever party RFK JR is on, I will vote for. I want my country to be restored to sanity. He is the real deal.
RFK Jr. appeals to large numbers of people in both Parties. He is the only candidate or prospective candidate, thus far, who does. Obviously, if he wins the Democratic Party’s nomination, then he will almost certainly become America’s next President. The same thing can’t be credibly said about Biden or any of the other candidates. Trump is the same as Biden: respected only by the public in his Party — not by Independents or the other Party. (So: a Trump-v.-Biden contest would be a contest between two nominees neither of which would have any chance at all of becoming the national leader in any truly democratic country.)
To get a better and fuller view of this unique candidate, RFK Jr., look at the show he put on, on 18 April 2023, in Boston, his campaign-announcement. But you might want to start viewing it at 34:00, when the introductions start. RFK Jr.’s extemporaneous 13,797-word, 108-minute-long, speech — delivered without any prepared text — starts at 46:00 (46 minutes) and goes till 2:34 (154 minutes), a total of 108 minutes. Because there was no written text, no transcript has been supplied; but someone (not affiliated with the campaign) transcribed and posted to the Web “RFK Jr. Presidential Announcement Speech” [without the introducers], and it has lots of errors. This is the sort of thing that often happens when a speech is delivered without a prepared text. Anyway, this is one instance in which one has to see and hear the speech in order to be able to understand its full meaning, about him, and about America.
Joe Biden wants RFK Jr Dead
On September 15th, already after many unavailing pleas by Joe Biden’s opponent in the Democratic Party primaries, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. (whose father was assassinated while campaigning for the Presidency in the 1968 Democratic primaries), to be supplied with Secret Service protection so that he won’t be assassinated, RFK Jr.’s personally costly privately hired protection service caught an armed man at one of his rallies pretending to be part of that protection, who was held by them for police to take away.
RFK Jr. posted on social media that night:
robertfkennedyjr [night of 15 September 2023]
I’m very grateful that alert and fast-acting protectors from Gavin de Becker and Associates (GDBA) spotted and detained an armed man who attempted to approach me at my Hispanic Heritage speech at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in Los Angeles tonight.
The man, wearing two shoulder holsters with loaded pistols and spare ammunition magazines, was carrying a U.S. Marshal badge on a lanyard and beltclip federal ID. He identified himself as a member of my security detail. Armed GDBA team members moved quickly to isolate and detain the man until LAPD arrived to make the arrest. I’m also grateful to LAPD for its rapid response.
I’m still entertaining a hope that President Biden will allow me Secret Service protection. I am the first presidential candidate in history to whom the White House has denied a request for protection.
Perhaps Biden’s strategy on this is that if RFK Jr. does become assassinated during this campaign against Biden for the nomination, then Biden will still be better off even after the blowback to him from his having singled out RFK Jr. to deny that protection to, because any other opponent who might challenge Biden for the nomination would stand far less of a chance to dislodge Biden from winning the Democratic nomination than if Biden is contesting against RFK Jr. for it.
What other explanations can be provided for RFK Jr.’s being the first Presidential candidate in history who has been denied Secret Service protection?
Is Google Suppressing News from RFK Jr’s Campaign?
On September 16th, RFK Jr., whom all of the polls have shown to have a much higher net-favorability rating by registered American voters than any other U.S. Presidential candidate (including both Biden and Trump) does, is being so much censored out of the Web in Google searches, so that either Google itself is doing this by means of its search-algorithms, or else all of the U.S. news media are doing it by means of their editorial policies (their selection of writers, and of which stories to publish and to reject — or else both methods of censorship are being applied.
For example, on September 16th RFK Jr.’s campaign sent out a news-release headlined “Armed Man Posing as U.S. Marshal Arrested at Kennedy Event Celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month”. It was the fullest account yet of the event that had occurred the prior day, at which two men with guns, one having extra ammunition, pretended to be part of RFK Jr.’s privately hired security detail in order to be able to position themselves near to where he would be. The following important new information in this news-report had not yet been reported by any news-medium: “LAPD also took custody of a second man, who came to the campaign event with the primary suspect. Protectors observed that the man seeking access to the event had a backpack, found to contain at least one other handgun, multiple knives, and extra ammunition.” So: this was very hot news, about a likely attempt to assassinate Kennedy — a very hot news-story.
However, 24 hours later, by which time his press release ought to have been widely published, here was the result from a Google search for the headline with quotation-marks around it (which, of course, is the right way to search for a certain succession of words on the Web):
And here is what Google produced once I clicked onto the link at their phrase at the end, “If you like, you can repeat the search with the omitted results included.”:

So: that’s the fullest find from Google (just those 4), on this historically very important news-report. Within 24 hours of the press release’s having been issued, nobody except newsbreak.com (and, of course, the Kennedy campaign) had published it, or else Google had filtered-out from their finds, all of the other news-media that had published it. Or else both.
My news-report about the event was also issued on September 16, and headlined simply “Joe Biden Wants RFK Jr. Dead” — it was accepting as factually true RFK’s allegations that he is the only Presidential candidate in modern times who has requested and been denied Secret Service protection — and one of the reader-comments to it said that, “Secret Service states that they don’t provide any protection, by their own rules, until four or five months prior to election day. So technically there is no obligation to do so.” However, there is no legal “obligation” to provide that protection, but it is instead discretionary on the part of the sitting President and Administration. Furthermore, the first of those two sentences, “Secret Service states that they don’t provide any protection, by their own rules, until four or five months prior to election day,” is false, as was documented at great length on August 7th, by Jeremy R. Hammond, in his excellent 7,000-word “Setting the Record Straight on the Denial of Secret Service Protection to RFK Jr.”, which provided numerous examples to the contrary of that allegation; such as, for example, the following ones:
- March 2000 – George W. Bush receives Secret Service protection at least 221 days before the election.
- February 20, 2004 – Senator John Kerry receives Secret Service protection 256 days before the election. The same day, ABC News reports that John Edwards would also “soon” receive Secret Service protection.
- May 3, 2007 – Barack Obama receives Secret Service protection 551 days before the election for having received “hate mail and calls and other ‘threatening materials’” that fell short of “any specific, credible threat” against him, as reported by CNN. Obama receives this protection even though, at the time, he didn’t meet the polling criteria.
- April 23, 2008 – A spokesman for Senator John McCain confirms 195 days before the election that he is receiving Secret Service protection.
- November 17, 2011 – Herman Cain receives Secret Service protection 355 days before the 2012 election, reportedly due to threats made against him.
CNN headlined on July 28th, “Fact check: RFK Jr.’s misleading viral claim about Secret Service protection”, but chose to exclude the many examples that violated, disproved, their allegations.
RFK Jr.’s statements about this matter are to the effect that, as he stated in his September 16th press release:
“I’m still entertaining a hope that President Biden will allow me Secret Service protection,” he added.
Unlike many other high-profile candidates who were given Secret Service protection more than a year before the general election, Kennedy’s applications, one filed in May and another in August, have both been rejected. The campaign plans to apply a third time this month.
His specific accusation against his competitor, Biden, on this is that, as he stated it in a tweet on September 16th: “I am the first presidential candidate in history to whom the White House has denied a request for protection.” No one has disproved that; even the astoundingly hostile news media, which say that he is lying about this, haven’t cited even a single exception to that statement.
If RFK Jr. becomes assassinated during his campaign for the Democratic Party’s Presidential nomination, then Biden himself will have become exposed to all as the person who had facilitated the assassin’s success, and will share with that person in the guilt for the murder of his biggest political competitor. Is that the way to win continued stay in the White House?
Google, and the news-media, by their oppressive censorship, which has been documented here, will also share some of the blame. This is a very serious matter for American democracy (or what little still remains of it), and by their continuous propagandizing for the Biden campaign, they are assisting a psychopath to continue running the Democratic Party. It also shows how stupid Biden is, because, if he does succeed in helping to get RFK Jr. assassinated, then how many Americans who have been voting for Democratic Party candidates will continue to do so? It will not be favorable, either to Biden’s campaign, or to the Democratic Party. Biden’s own psychopathy will then clearly have gotten the better of him, by means of his own stupidity. It will do him in, and his Party in — and his country in.
Investigative historian Eric Zuesse’s new book, AMERICA’S EMPIRE OF EVIL: Hitler’s Posthumous Victory, and Why the Social Sciences Need to Change, is about how America took over the world after World War II in order to enslave it to U.S.-and-allied billionaires. Their cartels extract the world’s wealth by control of not only their ‘news’ media but the social ‘sciences’ — duping the public.
