Robert F. Kennedy Jr. will announce his candidacy for the Democrat nomination for President on April 19 in Boston (of course). Which reminds me of 1970s football when the Washington Redskins played in Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium.
My favorite football team growing up was, of course, the St. Louis Cardinals. The Grid Birds. The Big Red. I had season tickets from 1978 to 1984.
My second favorite football of all time was the Pittsburg Steelers. How could you not love the quintessential blue collar team with legendary names like Rocky Bleier (Purple Heart Vietnam), Franco Harris, Lynn Swan, John Stalworth, Mean Joe Greene, L.C. Greenwood, the Jacks: Lambert and Hamm, Mel Blount.
When the Cardinals, with Kurt Warner at quarterback, faced the Steelers in Super Bowl XLIII, I wasn’t so much torn as thrilled. While Kurt Warner’s presence tipped my vote to the Big Red, I wouldn’t be crushed if the heavily favored Steelers won. Moreover, because neither franchise was a St. Louis team, I could enjoy the battle in relative peace and pacivity, like a normal person instead of the raving fanatic I become a hometown team has a championship on the line.
But this has nothing to do with football, or even sports, for that matter. It’s about the country.
I was thrilled to learn that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is running for the Democrat nomination for President. I was thrilled to learn this for the same reason I was thrilled the Cardinals and the Steelers were facing each other in the Super Bowl. I also rooted for Tulsi Gabbard in the Democrat primaries in 2016.
Some people want the Democrat nominee to be the worst possible candidate. They think a lousy Democrat gives the Republican a better chance.
People who think that way long ago stopped thinking at all. They believe Republicans are the good guys and Democrats the villains. They treat politics as an extension of high school where the clique you’re in is more important than the fate of humanity. “Useful idiots” was Lenin’s term for such people.
While I might be an idiot, I’m not all that useful, and I want the Democrat nominee to be an excellent human being who loves the country and the Constitution and Jesus. I want elections to be the greater of two goods. I want to go to bed on election night knowing that whoever is declared the winner (three months later), is a solid, respectable person who puts America and freedom first. We should all want, hope, and pray that America’s next president hates the administrative state like you see in movies.
RFK Jr. is just such a man. I want Donald Trump to be the 47th President, but I won’t jump off a cliff if it’s RFK Jr.
Kennedy is an enemy of the Deep State, the administrative state that actually runs every aspect of your life. Kennedy wants to crush it. A presidential campaign between Trump and Kennedy would focus on one issue: which man is more likely to crush the Deep State? Voters would have to choose whose plan to dismantle the CIA, FBI, FDA, CDC, NIH, DHS, and all the other 3-letter agencies sounds the most plausible.
That means the elimination of the Deep State could be a forgone conclusion by June 2024. The only question being who will tear it down?
Further, a Kennedy-Trump campaign would put the Deep State in a tough position. Would the CIA and FBI and DOD be bold enough to assassinate both candidates before the election? Or would they wait and assassinate them after the election?
Either way, people might finally understand that the US government is at war with with all of us. The Kennedy-Trump debates and the subsequent actions taken by the Deep State might finally cause the scales over Americans’ eyes to drop.
Last night, Steve Bannon and Jayne Zirkle analyzed Kennedy’s recent speech at Hillsdale College. You’ve never heard Bannon say nicer things about a Democrat—unless he was talking about Naomi Wolf or Tulsi Gabbard or the many other Democrats who have emerged as true patriots, not because they’ve changed, but because those scales have fallen from our eyes.
We pray for wisdom. Recognizing that the old party labels and affiliations mean nothing when the government is warring against its people is evidence that God hears and answers our prayers.
I agree, Bill. I would be OK with Kennedy as President. I believe him to be a critical thinker and not a puppet. He might be able to bring the nation together...if that is even possible.
