  • Another Kennedy for President?
    May 31 2023
    Robert F Kennedy Jr, scion of the first family of Democratic politics, has launched an insurgent challenge to incumbent Joe Biden for the party’s presidential nomination for 2024. Early polls have suggested he has the backing of up to one fifth of Democratic voters. On this episode of the Free Expression Podcast, Kennedy Jr. sits down with Wall Street Journal editor at large Gerry Baker and talks about his campaign’s populist message: blasting big business and an overreaching government and a political and cultural environment he claims is characterized by official and corporate censorship and control. They discuss Covid lockdown mandates, energy policy and why he opposes US military support for Ukraine against Russia. He is also challenged about his long-standing, controversial - and widely discredited - campaign against vaccines for children and other controversial causes he has promoted.  Learn more about your ad choices.

Nope thought it would be intectually based

I am conservative female, and young under 50 but my heroes in conservative field were the hard workers, thoughtful leaders who had brains and cared about all people not who just elected them, the screamers, carried the biggest machine gun or gave them $$$
DT is an embrassment to me and needs to fade away. Our party is sadly now run by terrified idiots or arrogrant airheads.
Reagan, George Will and writer Charles Kult. you are sorely missed.
