Kennedy Vs. Death 2024

 Prospective Voters,

RFK Jr. is Running For President, and why this matters, A Midwestern Doctor​ (also Meryl Nass MD​,​ Peter McCulough MD, and myself)

  Robert F Kennedy Jr, "Bobby"​ has headed up a Hudson River environmentalist group, "Riverkeeper" for 33 years. They have gotten the Hudson cleaned up by reporting pollution violators and bringing them to court. They have done a good job. 
  Mercury pollution was one of the problems, and mothers of mercury-containing-vaccine injured children kept showing up at Bobby's events, seeking to alert him to the mercury-preservative-neurotoxicity that disabled their children. He eventually read the medical papers, or the firs 6 inches of the 18 inch stack, was convinced, and began to assess vaccine-injuries to children, forming Children's Health Defense in 2011, initially as the World Mercury Project. 
Wikipedia credits them with being "one of the main sources of misinformation on vaccines".
  That pre-positioning, on the "wrong side" of a powerful and well funded lobby, which just went too far, has put Bobby Kennedy Jr. in a unique position. 
Liability-exempt vaccine manufacturing companies, fulfilling special "bioweapon countermeasure prototype"  contracts with the Department of Defense, are trying to double-down on "safety and efficacy" of the variously mandatory experimental injections which fail to reduce COVID infections, seem to increase them, cause sudden deaths from strokes and heart attacks, myocarditis, autoimmune disease, loss of cancer-protections, and a rise in "excess mortality" in employed and unemployed alike. Over the past 2 years there has been growing awareness of injuries to children, their deaths, in and out of sports, and the extension of this to sports celebrities, other celebrities, family members and nice people that we all know.
  Meanwhile, in courts of law, Pfizer maintains that they never produced vaccine, just countermeasure-prototypes for the Department of Defense, and that no fraud was involved, because the DoD was aware of their falsification of documents, was fine with that, and kept paying them. The courts have completely accepted that defense, but people are generally unaware of those facts.
  I have called "Kennedy for President" since 10/25/2020
If you Google RFK Jr. Substack, you get Bobby's Substack first, but #2 is a link entitled "RFK Jr is Controlled Opposition". The comments in the MD blogs about RFK Jr's candidacy have about 3 kinds of comments: those which are hopeful, those which are hopeless, and those who think he is "controlled opposition".
  The main complaint is that Bobby signs-on to Anthropogenic Global Warming, and that this is a WEF agenda to reduce human population, and remove human freedoms, based on Agenda 2030  
  In 2007 Bobby supported moving away from fossil-fuels and transitioning to renewables, and saw that markets could work with that, and that it could be good. I thought that was good, too, but I doubted how far it could go so late in the game.
  In January of 2020, just pre-COVID, Bobby talked about wildfires in Australia, those that threatened his California home, "our addiction to coal and oil" and his advocacy of "market mechanisms, like carbon taxes and the elimination of subsidies".
  Climate One website carries this RFK Jr. quote, "Our deadly addiction to carbon is the principal enemy to America’s prosperity, to our leadership, to our national security, to the values that makes us proud to be part of this country, and to the historic role that my family always believed in of America as an exemplary nation".​  ​

​  Reality is more complicated than that. We are "addicted" to food, and to running water, electricity, natural gas, cars to drive to grocery stores, refrigerated food at low prices, and the lifestyle provided by our life support system, our "political economy". Some of us have had the opportunity to travel to places where people subsist more as our rural ancestors did a century or more ago.​ Trekking in the Himalayas, Jenny and I were careful to carry our own filtered water, but I still had Giardia for the whole 3 weeks of the trek, having gotten it from incompletely cooked spinach crepes in Kathmandu, I think. This was an instructive exercise in trotting to the edge of town each morning at dawn to urgently relieve the gas and stool. We lost weight and ate lentils and rice, occasionally an egg, which seemed like a luxury, when available.  It was a good exercise, followed by the heat of India in late May, with the monsoons late to arrive, then the comfort of a room with air conditioning in Thailand, where we rested and rehydrated for a few days, before continuing our travels.
  We, in the US and similar countries, use about 100 times the energy that our own bodies use each day. We can adapt to using less when we travel, because everybody else knows how to do it, and shows us. These answers are not going to come from Goldman Sachs selling carbon credits, or from buying a Prius or Tesla, since those have more embedded energy and pollution over their lifetimes than does a Toyota Matrix, for example. We cannot spend our way out of this impasse. 
  We can adapt. All of us adapt regularly. We are the descendants of those who successfully adapted. Growing a vegetable garden and riding your bike are a start into the process of discovering the path. We have to work this problem together. Jimmy Carter tried to say that in his "sweater speech"; remember?

  Professor Nate Hagens (previously of The Oil Drum) talked to grad students at The Center For Homeland Defense And Security recently (Thanks Rick). 
[I had to look it up. That's a Naval Academy Grad. School.] He presented an almost hour long lecture on the familiar theme that we are peaking or have just peaked, in a one-time carbon-pulse of energy inheritance, which we thought was a steady flow, but was really a lump-sum that we are about half finished with already. The first 12 minutes is his basic lead-in. The presentation gets more substantive after about 22 minutes, and he closes with the difficult point in time that will arrive in the next financial crisis, brought on by the inability to service exponentially expanding debt, in a finite economy, which is beginning to contract. He gives 2025 as a hypothetical time, but I think it could well be this year or next. He calls on these Naval Academy grad students to consider how they might serve their country in these coming times by providing stability. He has not gotten that worked out yet, but the first steps are to see the problem approaching, and to want to help.

  Consciousness of Sheep again points out that the complexities of real economy are blithely misunderstood, particularly by economists, but looking the other way does not slow their approach down at all.
​  ​Missed by most of us – at least prior to the 2008 crash – was the fact that economists were entirely unaware of what currency is and where it comes from.  As Steve Keen was to explain:
  “It may astonish non-economists to learn that conventionally trained economists ignore the role of credit and private debt in the economy – and frankly, it is astonishing.  But it is the truth.  Even today, only a handful of the most rebellious of mainstream ‘neoclassical’ economists – people like Joe Stiglitz and Paul Krugman – pay any attention to the role of private debt in the economy, and even they do so from the perspective of an economic theory in which money and debt play no intrinsic role.  An economic theory that ignores the role of money and debt in a market economy cannot possibly make sense of the complex, monetary, credit-based economy in which we live.  Yet that is the theory that has dominated economics for the last half-century.”
  Currency then, a mere representation of the real economy – initially using precious metals, but today no more than an interconnected series of electronic bank ledger books – does not factor into the mathematically exquisite but entirely ungrounded econometric models – the simulacrum of a simulacrum – used by economists.  And it is upon these models that both common-sense understanding – as delivered by the establishment media – and economic policy – the tertiary simulacrum – have been built.
​  ​This is one reason why, for example, having undermined global supply chains and driven up the cost of energy to the European economies, politicians and central bankers are left blaming the ensuing crises on such things as people retiring too early, workers asking for pay rises, and businesses attempting to cover their rising costs.  It is also why, despite growing currency shortages, central bankers are still committed to interest rate rises which are likely to trigger a collapse far greater and far more widespread than the 2008 version.
​  ​Unfortunately, as we discovered during and in the aftermath from the pandemic, even natural sciences have become politicised to an extent which forces us to mistrust even that research published in scientific journals.  Nevertheless, the requirement for objective research at least forces a degree of contact with the real world.  The same cannot be said of economics, which is based solely on models of a financial economy which is merely a simulacrum – often a seriously distorted one – of the real economy… a real economy which is increasingly coming back to bite us for the erroneous decisions we have been making on the back of those detached economic models.
​  ​As I ruefully suggested in The Consciousness of Sheep, with access to a seemingly infinite supply of cheap energy and resources during some 300 years of industrial civilisation, like the adherents of some obscure religion, economists could come up with whatever nonsense they wanted to, and people in the real world would find a way of making it work.  But now that energy is no longer cheap, and the resources available to us are depleting rapidly, the need to unthink economics is becoming existential.  Rather than the current simulacrum, we desperately need a new science of the economy, properly grounded in the real world of energy, resources and physical limits.  Instead, as we shall see in Part Three, the ruling technocracy is bent upon a further flight into the realms of utopian technofantasy – seeking to replace Planet Earth itself with a hyperreal digital simulacrum.

  Jim Rickards points out that all risk in the $US system has been transferred onto the system itself, as a solution, since 2008. Currency crisis is now possible.
​  ​By the way, this is not really a banking crisis even though it plays out in the form of bank failures. What’s going on is a crisis caused by a shortage of Treasury bill collateral to support derivatives positions and shrinking balance sheets as a consequence of the collateral shortage.
​  ​Why doesn’t the Treasury just issue, say, $2 trillion of new T-bills and let the primary dealers and Fed underwrite them with as much printed money as needed? One reason is that neither Jay Powell nor Janet Yellen understands what we just described.
​  ​The other reason is that we’re up against the X-Date when the Treasury runs out of cash and can’t borrow more because of the debt ceiling. Is Congress ready to raise the debt ceiling? Nope. It’s the usual Democrat versus Republican game of chicken with no resolution in sight.

​Charles Hugh Smith: ​  Global Bankruptcy Already Baked In
​  ​Scrape away the complexity and every economic crisis and crash boils down to the precarious asymmetry between collateral and the debt secured by that collateral collapsing.
​  ​It’s really that simple.

​  This is not an acceptable position to the US State Department. Will reality prevail? Who has the authority to negotiate peace?
​ Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky is visiting Poland to prepare a “diplomatic coalition” for eventual peace talks with Russia, retired Polish general Waldemar Skrzypczak has claimed. He argued that Kiev cannot achieve its aims on the battlefield, and will need Western support for negotiations with Moscow.
​  ​Skrzypczak was speaking to the Rzeczpospolita newspaper on Wednesday, as Zelensky arrived in Warsaw to meet senior officials. The former commander of the Polish Land Forces rejected the idea that Ukraine should use Western weapons for a last-ditch offensive against Russia – a scenario reportedly being pressed upon Kiev by its foreign backers.
​  “Pushing the Ukrainians into an offensive is unjustified at the moment, because they are not ready for it. Now it’s time for politicians,” Skrzypczak argued.​  ​

Zelensky vows ‘no borders’ between Ukraine and Poland​ (Smiles look fake to me.)
​  ​Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky met his Polish counterpart Andrzej Duda in Warsaw on Wednesday, during his first official visit to Poland since the beginning of hostilities between Russia and Ukraine in February 2022.“You have stood shoulder to shoulder with us, and we are grateful for it,” Zelensky stated during the meeting, pledging “no borders in political, economic and – especially important – in historical terms” between the two countries.
​  ​The Polish president, for his part, promised to continue supporting Kiev in the conflict, revealing that Warsaw was ready to send all its MiG-29 fighter jets to Ukraine “in the future.” Poland has previously pledged 14 of its Soviet-made jets.​..
​..On Tuesday, the head of Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), Sergey Naryshkin, claimed that Poland’s military assistance to Ukraine was actually part of a secret land grab plan aimed at certain territories that historically belonged to the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, which today are part of Ukraine.
​  “Seizing control of the western territories of modern Ukraine, the so-called Kresy [‘borderlands’ in Polish], is the coveted dream of the Polish nationalists,” Naryshkin said, adding that Warsaw sees “the collapse of Ukrainian statehood after a military defeat as a condition for implementing this idea.”
​  ​Over the course of the ongoing conflict, Naryshkin has repeatedly warned of the alleged Polish designs on Ukraine’s territory. Warsaw, however, has denied such claims, dismissing them as an information warfare operation. (RT)

​  Russian Analyst , Gilbert Doktorow looks at French President Macron's 3 day trip to China with Ursula von der Leyen and 50 business executive who sign deals with China, and surprisingly claims that it is about business, not preaching to China about global citizenship. France is making non-dollar deals. Any French and EU preachiness is not targeted at Xi Jinping, but may be necessary for some of those watching from afar. Thnks Christine.
  I got to the end and saw that the ever conservative Doktorow wrote this:
​  At the conclusion of my time on air, I brought up another major event of the past month which also was blacked out by our broadcasters, namely the destruction of an underground bunker near the Western Ukraine city of Liviv by a Russian hypersonic missile Kinzhal, which cost the lives of more than 200 NATO generals and other high military officers, including about 20 Americans. That event, which first was announced very discreetly on Russian news tickers immediately following its execution, was again quietly and briefly mentioned on the Yandex ticker yesterday with respect to the “shipment in crates” of the recovered remains of those officers killed to their home countries in the West.

  1968 was the year that French student protests brought down the government, RFK and MLK were assassinated, LBJ decided not to run for another term, and the Democratic convention was disrupted by street protests against the Vietnam war, and the assassination of the anti war leaders. 2023 echoes 1968.
​  ​French trade unions called for record turnout at protests on Thursday, after negotiations with the government over a controversial pension reform bill broke down. France has been consumed by protests and riots since President Emmanuel Macron’s government hiked the retirement age without a vote in parliament.
​  ​Union representatives met with Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne on Wednesday, warning beforehand that they would walk out if Borne refused to entertain the idea of bringing the retirement age for most workers back to 62 from 64. Borne refused, and the union representatives walked out, calling for strikes and mass demonstrations the following day.

​President Macron was a Rothschild banker not long before being thrust into his current political role.

​  M.K. Bhadrakumar at Indian Punchline  OPEC: Saudis aren’t afraid of US anymore
​  ​All that the Western leaders can complain about is that the OPEC+ cut in oil output has come at an inappropriate time. But the woes of Western economies cannot be laid at the door of OPEC+ as there are inherent problems which are now coming to the surface. For instance, the large scale protests in France against pension reform or the widespread strikes in Britain for higher wages show that there are deep structural problems in these economies, and the governments seem helpless in tackling them.
​  ​In geopolitical terms, the OPEC+ move came after a meeting between Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak and Saudi Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Salman in Riyadh on March 16 that focused on oil market cooperation. Therefore, it is widely seen as the tightening of the bond between Russia and Saudi Arabia. In fact, in May, as the largest members of OPEC join Russia in its unilateral reduction, the balance of quotas and the ratio of market shares between and amongst the participants in the OPEC + deal will return to the level set when it was concluded in April 2020.
​  ​The big question is, how Moscow might profit from the OPEC+ decision. The rise in crude oil prices particularly benefits Russia. Simply put, the production cuts will tighten up the oil market and thus help Russia to secure better prices for the crude oil it sells. Second, the new cuts also confirm that Russia is still an integral and important part of the group of oil producing countries, despite the western attempts to isolate it.

​  Authors Conclude "Relatively Safe" as Dozens of Children Die after COVID-19 Vaccination
Published Reports Whitewashing Fatal Complications

​  ​As an author and editor, I have always lived by a principle of medical publication that the conclusions must be supported by the data presented. Many have asked me why to do doctors still support COVID-19 vaccination with all safety data systems reporting record mortality after injection—many cases occurring on the same day or in the next few days after administration? The reason may be what doctors are concluding from the data in peer-reviewed manuscripts does not match the information disclosed.
​  ​Villa-Zapata and coworkers published a report from VAERS on “safety” of COVID-19 vaccination in children age 5 to 17 and in the data table there are 56 deaths! Also listed are other potentially fatal complications such as anaphylaxis and myocarditis
​  ​The authors concluded that COVID-19 vaccination in children is “relatively safe.”

  1. Very Happy. He has our vote and $ support. Dennis Boston

    1. Good Dennis. I hope he is not assassinated. This is a long road, and Bobby aso has work to do.

    2. I'm more than a little surprised that there have not been more assasinations in the recent past...I would have thought Trump would have been a target...have 'bodily' assisinations gone out of style, replaced by 'electronic' assasinations via blanking/censorship of individuals online instead? Much cleaner and cheaper, at least emotionally??

    3. Trump wa always careful to have a personally-loyal security detail, same as Castro.
