I have a great deal of respect for Robert F Kennedy Jr, but who would have thought I would be applauding a Democrat run for the Presidency of the United States!

Robert F Kennedy Jr. Announces His Bid for Presidency

“In my presidency, I will end the corrupt nature of the merger between state and corporate power that is threatening even now to impose a new kind of corporate feudalism on our country.” (RFK Jr).


Come with me on some highlights from Robert Kennedy’s Jr nomination speech for the Democratic party in Boston, Massachusetts, on 20 April 2023, in his bid for the presidency in 2024. His campaign website His book (The Real Anthony Fauci: Big Pharma’s Global War on Democracy, Humanity, and Public Health (2022)) that opened my eyes to this great statesman. And my Daily Declaration commentary on this book.

(Of his wife Cheryl) “… the American people are going to be really excited to get to know a really funny first lady in the White House.” (RFK Jr)

“We have a polarization in this country today that is so toxic and more dangerous than at any time since the civil war. Abraham Lincoln said (quoting Matt 12:22–28) “A house divided against itself cannot stand”. We must end this division… Let’s talk about the values that unite us rather than the issues that keep us apart.” (RFK Jr)

This is a man, articulate, extremely well read, and empathetic, to a degree so rare in politics today. He has taken the temperature of the people brilliantly and can articulate a united way forward that is jaw-droppingly believable.

Kennedy took a sledgehammer to government, media and their corporate backers for their blatant lies resulting in the lowest levels of trust ever seen in America in these institutions.

If the people can’t believe their government, if Americans can’t believe their media, they are of all people most vulnerable to manipulation. Kennedy quoted recent statistics that trust in mainstream media is at an all-time low of only 20%.

“I am going to talk about lockdowns… you need a middle class, or you don’t have democracy. Lockdowns saw the biggest shift in wealth in human history. I blame President Trump for the lockdowns… 600 doctors wrote to him begging him not to do lockdowns… at some point even the media are going to have to stop saying that lockdown was a success story. The cost to the US economy was $16 trillion. The lockdowns were a war on the poor and on American children. Just look at Sweden, a nation that never lockdown and has recorded the lowest number of excess deaths.” (RFK Jr).

Who would have thought the Democrats could produce a nominee of this calibre? President Biden is also nominating. Who would you pick between these two Democrats?

    Jim, how can you possibly endorse a man who is the arch anti-vax leader, who has been deceitfully spreading misinformation about life saving medications for the past two decades, the result being that he has blood on his hands? Are you unaware of his history?

    • Jim Twelves 28 April 2023 at 1:57 pm - Reply

      Kim, I am sorry that you seem to have written off RJK Jr. before he has even started! I respect your views on vaccinations, everyone should be free to research and come to their own mind on such matters in my view. Listening to his speech of nomination, I did not hear a big ‘anti-vax’ stance, rather he was targeting the crippling ‘government measures’ that wreaked such misery and damage. I think, in the end, you will find that the measures imposed on us from on high were criminally wrong and ineffective. I think you will find, that the evidence will be clear, that they were a knee-jerk reaction of governments desperate to be seen as, ‘in-charge’. They were not based on ‘good science’ at all but on polling done on frightened people.

        Jim, I am astounded that you can ignore the fact that he is such a charlatan and a fraud, and has been for two decades, misleading people about life saving medications. It is incalculable the number of children who have lost their lives because of his fraudulent claim linking vaccines and Autism!

        So please don’t give me that line that “everyone should be free to research and come to their own mind on such matters in my view” after I have given you proof that he is criminally culpable in that regard! I’m sorry, but the truth is the truth, not a matter of mere opinion.

        And when that history is so well documented, what does it matter if he did not adopt “a big ‘anti-vax’ stance, rather he was targeting the crippling ‘government measures’ that wreaked such misery and damage” in his campaign speech? All he’s doing is diverting attention from his crimes and playing on the prejudice of all those opposed to lockdowns, a prejudice you obviously share.

        And your raising of it in response to my spotlighting his criminally fraudulent anti-vax history amounts to nothing more than “whataboutery”.

        But what’s most alarming is that this is precisely the kind of “silver tongued” charlatan who Scripture warns us to be on the lookout for in the Last Days, yet you want to sing his praises from the rooftops?

        And here’s another thought. In light of the fact that “Canberra Declaration” stands primarily for values relating to the sanctity of life, in particular abortion, euthanasia, and in general “protecting freedom, family, faith, culture and life”, do you imagine that, as a Democrat, and from a long and famous line of Democrats, that he will hold positions on those issues that align with our organisation?

        Because I’m sure that if you did some research on those issues that you will find that he doesn’t. He WILL uphold the Democratic position on abortion, euthanasia, same sex marriage, transgender “rights, etc. And as his primary occupation has been as an environmental lawyer, then you don’t need to wonder what his thoughts on climate change will be!

        So, here we have a situation where you’ve written a glowing article on this man’s presidential run on the basis of your own bias on a single issue, when every position he holds on issues central to our purpose here is in opposition to those.

          Kim, you are “spot on” with your comments about RFK, Jr and sanctity of life. Jim is stunningly clueless about American Politics and the one political party that is rabidly pro-choice. This endorsement says that one third of the Canberra Declaration is subordinated to his views on lockdowns.

    great to see a nephew of John F Keendy and son of Bobby run for president. I am a better informed informed prayerful person because of his speeches and writings. His work iChild defence is also being taken up here in Australia by a local doctor …very thankful he is running .

      Stephen, wonderful! I am thrilled too. Any one with integrity (even if I don’t agree with every one of their views) who speaks for truth is welcome in my ears. Lets she how he goes, but I think that he could be a great force for good in the US, he may well influence the debate and bring back some civility to society, even if he does not win.

      Stephen, Thank you for your endorsement.

    Once you have eyes to see how corrupt the vaccine industry is, you can’t un-see it. Very happy to see him running but I doubt the corrupt powers that are the present democrat party will allow it.

    • Jim Twelves 28 April 2023 at 8:37 pm - Reply

      Rae, I have no illusions that he is likely to topple Biden for the Dems, but I am thrilled that he is getting his message out loud and clear and Biden, apparently, allegedly, can’t connect two sentences that well without help.

    RFK jr. is probably the last hope for the U.S. but it is almost impossible to see him winning the Democratic nomination. The DNC has long abandoned the values and principles that once guided the Democratic Party and if Trump wins the Republican nomination, as predicted, he cannot win the Presidency making Biden a shoo-in and the end of the U.S. as a democracy.
    I hope RFK runs for the Presidency as an independent if he cannot win the Democratic nomination. The U.S. and the world need a President Kennedy again.

      There is only one “last hope” for the US, the same as for here in Australia. And it’s not a politician. It’s Jesus working through His Body committed only to Him and His purposes.

        Kim, Amen to that one!

          Not sure why my comments are being removed Jim ?

    Thank you for your writing Jim and I agree . Imagine if …..the only people we are willing to listen to are those who agree with everything we say…..on all subjects. Sounds like a dysfunctional Peter Pan cult !
    “ Give me freedom or give me death “. Now there’s a worthy decision.

      Kaylene, thnaks for this. (I can’t see that your comments are being removed, as I see two on this piece). As to your quote, I did not know it, so I had a quick look – apparently attributed to Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775.

    Kim… not surprised…. I disagree with you on just about everything… God bless RK JR. A good Christian and perhaps the man of the hour. Vaccines are a major cause of autism by the way…Do your homework.

    Thank you Jim…. I love RFK JR and have been on his Children’s Health Defence mailing list for a couple years. He’s the man of the hour to put corrupt Pharma out of business and in Jail by the grace of God…. He has been training all his life for such a time as this. Hope for the Democrats and maybe the Catholic Church! A light shining in a dark place! ❤️🙏

    One of the unspoken thoughts re RFK Jr. is the assignation of both his uncle and his father. Is this Kennedy putting himself in the line of fire?
    I just fell on this video where he says “one of the things worse than death is losing our freedom and living as slaves”.
    Just a thought!

    I cannot fathom why we could support a democrat recognising that the DNC has such a strong death (Abortion etc.) platform.
    Not to mention anti-Semitism, rainbow agenda, trans agenda, socialism etc.
    It is not one person but the machine behind them that matters.

    • Jim Twelves 3 May 2023 at 8:28 am - Reply

      Kim, I could not agree with you more if that was the case. My reading of RFK Jr. and my study of his speeches has flagged none of this evil. No, I believe, if he got the ticket, he would ‘clean house’ on the way to the White House. The mainstream media love to spread lies about people and I fear they are up to their tricks here as well.

      • Kim Beazley 3 May 2023 at 12:19 pm - Reply

        Jim, do you seriously imagine that he, or any other candidate, has the ability to remove what are now foundational policies of the Democrats? The fact that he has not mentioned any of that in his speeches is actually confirmation that he does not differ from his party on those issues, in the same way that his uncle, Senator Edward Kennedy did not.

        As Kym rightly says, it’s “the machine behind them that matters”. It IS “the case”.

    Thank you Dr. Jim Twelves! I agree Robert F Kennedy would make an excellent President. He is brave, honest and we need more people like that in a leadership role. I think people need to get past the fact that yes, Robert F Kennedy defended parents of children who had numerous serious side effects from vaccines . He was never an anti vaxer; he only took the time to research case studies on adverse effects from vaccines and scientific reports to come to his conclusions. People need to take the time to read his excellent book, The Real Anthony Fauci Big Pharma’s Global War on Democracy, Humanity, and Public Health (2022)) that also opened my eyes to conflicts of interest in the Public Health institutions that are supposed to protect the public and instead are the right arm of Big Pharma. People who continue to denigrate Robert F Kennedy and good brave doctors who have been censored only because they are truth tellers need to stop parroting mainstream Big Pharma rhetoric and do some scientific research themselves. Real science is a healthy debate and discussion on various medical topics. Not a one size fits all medical approach with censorship that abounds in our current society today. Thank you for having a platform that welcomes honesty.

      Ada, thank you so much, nailed it! I totally agree with Kim that the Democratic machine in the US is ‘diabolical’ but my read of RFK Jr. is that he, with ‘the people’ behind him, want to completely dismantle that machine. I applaud him for daring to try, even facing opposition from some in his own family.
