The most interesting candidate in the 2024 election has to be Democratic hopeful Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. - if not for his career path and family history, then for his willingness to buck the D.C. establishment narrative and attack The Uniparty.
In his latest campaign statement regarding the FBI's 2016 election interference, as described by the bombshell Durham Report, RFK Jr. is sounding the alarm for all Americans - regardless of party - who care about actual democratic values and the danger of having a non-existent press to hold the government accountable.
"This is no partisan skirmish,"
Kennedy tweeted. "It is about the political weaponization of the FBI to destroy a candidate and then a sitting President. It's about a matrix of lies so elaborate as to make a mockery of the democratic ideal of an informed citizenry."
As has now been extensively covered, Durham's report stated that the U.S. federal government had no grounds to open an investigation into then-candidate Donald Trump's 2016 presidential campaign and that the Russia investigation never should have happened. In short, it was founded on baseless evidence and smears, seemingly used to thwart and tarnish Trump.
The federal government's alleged willingness, and arguable success, to erode the U.S. Constitution and trample on well-established norms could not have been made possible without a lapdog media letting them do it.
Kennedy called out the louts in the legacy newsrooms as well.
"Maybe most alarming of all, the Durham investigation reveals the abject complicity of the mainstream press, which has yet to admit they were taken in by the big lie, propagated it, and now continues to permit those lies to stand as truth,"
Indeed, papers such as The Washington Post received Pulitizers for their reporting. Now that it has all been exposed as the scam it is - will such outlets return their prizes for fake news?
It seems doubtful.
But, as pointed out by Kennedy, the government's untoward relationship with the media, and vice versa, isn't necessarily new.
Similarly, cable news and traditional media were all too happy to regurgitate the lies that made the Iraq War possible, according to the son of the late-U.S. Attorney General Robert Kennedy.
"Further commentary by @ChrisLynnHedges clearly illustrates the similarities between this media convergence on two mendacious mythologies: Russiagate and the Iraq weapons of mass destruction lies, lies, and more lies."
RFK Jr.'s Russiagate commentary isn't the only time that he has shown a willingness to call out Swamp creatures and those who aid and abet them. RFK Jr. stands at odds with the Democratic Party on topics like Ukraine, COVID, "transgender-identifying"
men in women's sports, as well as the unholy marriage of Big Government in bed with Big Business.
It's no wonder the Left and their media allies hate the guy.
