Is this perhaps why Kucinich is no longer the campaign manager for RFK, Jr.?

I’ve speculated that. Pretty sure

On the surface I agree with you. But I am wondering if Dennis left for other reasons and this was just coincidental.

Signed, with this commentary:

When choosing sides, take care not to choose genocides. Do everything in your power to stop the slaughter.

Dennis Kucinich, I believe, is one of the rare principled politicians. I know he folded under pressure from Obama on the (in)famous ride on Air Force One, still he seems to be a man of integrity. I met him and his wife at a campaign event when I was volunteering for his 2088 Presidential campaign. I hope his sincere message is seen and shared by many. Thank you for sharing it here.

We need to send a hostage rescue team - to the Boteach Compound, to liberate RFK Jr., or whomever in his family they're holding.

This coming November is going to be a joke that writes itself - "So these three RABID Zionists walk into a General Election..."

Yes, I hate to speculate about something so henious but it seems to be the only explanation about the RFK Jr turn.

Unless it's what he really believes, which is of course his right.

Not only do I not agree with his views about Israel/Palestine situation, but I am very very disappointed, resentful and angry that he seems to have deserted the message that got us all excited about his candidacy in the first place.

The utter corruption and murder over the past 3 plus years here in America. (along with the normal corruption and murder)

What happened to bringing that all to light?

I find it frightening that someone who could be so bold as to stand up to Fauci, et al, and be so vocal about vaccines, cvidplandemic, and govt/pharma corruption could do such an about face. (I find it an about face).

What kind of power can do that?

AIPAC? The CIA? My question is why he continues his vacuous campaign since he has really negated any reason to trust him? Are those the orders he is following now?!

It feels like he REALLY wants the job... And is willing to say or do, whatever it takes to get it. We tend to mythologize his uncle, but he was by no means perfect, on a lot of fronts. He was clearly better than Nixon. And he managed to push back against the CIA and the Generals on Cuba and Nuclear War, and Vietnam - until he couldn't, any more. We have such limited options. Weighing them all he still seems like the best one. People say all kinds of things on the campaign trail. I'm cautiously optimistic that if he were to win, he'd make better choices than the other two, once in office. But who knows. I hope we'll get to find out.

He needs a VP that the system hates and fears, more than him. I suggest Cynthia McKinney. Cindy herself would be a good option, but might not bring as many votes with her.

I don't think RFK is serious, or he would have taken the Libertarian ballot line...even if he's not 100% on board with them. They have ballot access in every state. It was very fucking stupid for him to think he's going to get on more than a handful of ballots. He's there to be a monkey wrench. And he's not very different from Trump or Biden.

He's not playing with a full deck if he thinks he's going to get the job.

It's a long way to November. And his favorable to unfavorable numbers are the best in the race, currently... So... We'll see.

Yeah--if he were to be "chosen"--by some freak motive of the powers that be, not by the people--he would be forced to follow their orders. We know too well what would happen if he didn't.

"Blinken says has real concern over Russia-North Korea military ties."

What are we peace-freaks supposed to take from this Reuters headline?

1. He wants the US people to be worried too and to be grateful when he starts sending more weapons to South Korea. He secretly realizes that there is no real threat, but he wants to give weapons makers a big profit. Can everyone running this show be psychopaths--causing people to die in the name of profitability.

2. Blinken is really worried and feels compelled to spend and spend on the military and on weapons. But we peace-freaks know better and wish that we had someone like Dennis Kucinich running the Department of Peace to make our argument.

3. What about Kim John Un? Should we ignore the possibility that the supposed madman in charge in the North is likely to do anything—like shoot missiles at South Korea or Japan? Do we believe that Kim is really as crazy as portrayed, or is this just another lie

4. If we knew what Blinken knows, we would be convinced that he is the right person at the right time.

It is so hard to know deep down that this is all a sham or a big mistake and that we could all have what we need if we stopped spending it all needlessly on the military industrial complex.

"The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt." Bertrand Russell

And we are the lucky intelligent ones like Bertrand, and everyone who wanted it bad enough to get elected and selected are the cocksure stupid ones. Like Vonnegut called them during the Iraq debacle-- PP's (psychopathic personalities) and C students from Yale.

Thanks for this. With YouTube’s algorithm I’d probably never have seen it.

Signed and shared and I commented: END ALL WARS NOW! END MILITARY MADNESS NOW BEFORE IT ENDS ALL OF US!

I have always liked Dennis Kucinich, he really did a lot of good in spite of the rotten system he was in.
