A couple of years ago, you’d probably know Robert F. Kennedy Jr. for being one of the world’s most vocal antivaxxers, the black sheep of an American political dynasty and somehow married to Cheryl Hines from Curb Your Enthusiasm. A couple of years from now… might you know him as the US’s unlikeliest president?
RFK Jr. is challenging President Biden for the Democratic nomination in 2024. The DNC has declared that it won’t host primary debates — yet a Fox News poll this week showed Kennedy with 19 percent to Biden’s 62 percent.

“I’m not trying to be like anybody else, I don’t want to be compared to anybody. But I guess that’s out of the window.”

New Founding, the anti-woke corporations group co-founded by the Claremont Institute’s Matt Peterson and real estate mogul Nate Fischer, is said to be on the ropes. Cockburn hears Peterson and Fischer have had a major personal falling out over the direction of the organization — and that one or the other might be headed out the door. New Founding has paused several of its initiatives amid the turmoil, including its ALIGN newsletter, which is supposed to direct consumers to non-woke businesses…
Prince Harry has been back and forth to London, doing what he does best — causing trouble. In a case against Murdoch-owned News Group Newspapers, Harry claimed that his brother Prince William had “quietly” settled a phone hacking claim for a “very large sum” and received the payout as part of a “secret agreement” — and accused the Queen of being involved in the agreement. Why didn’t young Haz take the same deal, you ask? The word is that William was offered millions… and Harry? Only a measly £200,000…
