Smerconish asks if Media Coverage of RFK Jr is Goldilocks or a Bear

Smerconish rfk pollRobert Kennedy Jr. had a big day yesterday. He was on Elon Musk's Twitter Spaces:

Twitter owner Elon Musk has proposed hosting Twitter Spaces interviews with political candidates of all stripes, reflecting the billionaire’s supposed commitment to ideological neutrality and to promoting Twitter as a true “public square.” So far, however, Musk appears to be more interested in platforming candidates that align with his own views rather than those who might challenge them.

When I tuned in, there were 61,000 listeners.

And RFK Jr. was featured in the Michael Smerconish daily poll. And was part of a Town Hall live interview during the 3rd hour of his program.

If you aren't familiar with Smerconish, he's on Sirius POTUS channel 124 every weekday from 9am - noon and CNN on Saturday mornings. I've been listening to him since I lived in his hometown of Doylestown, Pennsylvania almost 30 years ago. His theme song is "Stuck in the middle with you." Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right!

Refreshingly Independent Politics

Smerconish.com exists as a unique home base for non-ideological thinking. Here, independent viewpoints not tethered to partisan perspective are welcomed and showcased. That doesn’t mean we ignore the opinions of the Left and Right, but rather, we offer them as part of a balanced presentation. The need for such a platform in an age of polarization is obvious. Never before have we had so much choice in where we get our news and information but so few take advantage of their access to diverse perspectives. This is your ticket out of a media silo.

We have looked at every Presidential candidate since 2008 through the lens of "who will do something, anything for people with autism and their families." For us. We endorse NO ONE. We know our readers hail from all corners of the political spectrum. Kennedy presents a quandary.  He has been part of our community for many years.  I first saw him take on Dr. Paul Offit's work at Autism One.  He launched Children's Health Defense. And has written numerous books on topics near and dear to our hearts. Still - we are not endorsing him. We'll present each candidate.  How about the past? President Donald Trump (R) promised to "drain the swamp" and make Robert Kennedy head of a vaccination safety committee. That never happened. We ended up with Operation Warp Speed and the Covid vaccine, with all of its non-mandate mandates under President Biden (D.) Do we look at the party or the content of the candidates' character?

The poll results about RFK Jr as of 2:30pm yesterday were as follows:  Chime in with your thoughts. You don't have to hold back. Be civil of course.

The War On Ivermectin 2023The War On Ivermectin
Dr. Pierre Kory

Ivermectin is a dirty word in the media. It doesn’t work. It’s a deadly horse dewormer. Prescribe or promote it and you’ll be called a right-wing quack, be banned from social media, or lose your license to practice medicine. And yet, entire countries wiped out the virus with it, and more than ninety-five studies now show it to be unequivocally effective in preventing and treating Covid-19. If it didn’t work, why was there a coordinated global campaign to cancel it? What’s the truth about this decades-old, Nobel Prize-winning medication? The War on Ivermectin is the personal and professional narrative of Dr. Pierre Kory and his crusade to recommend a safe, inexpensive, generic medicine as the key to ending the pandemic.

Real RFK Jr Book CoverHere's a great Father's Day gift idea. The Real RFK Jr Trials of a Truth Warrior from Skyhorse Publishing is available NOW for pre-order. It's already #1 on the Amazon best sellers list.

By Dick Russell

An epic biography filled with drama, conflict, and surmounted challenges.

The Real RFK Jr. is an intimate biographical portrait examining the controversial activist's journey from anguish and addiction to becoming the country's leading environmental champion fighting government corruption, corporate greed, and a captured media. Written by his longtime colleague Dick Russell, the biography also exposes the misconceptions and explains the rationale behind Kennedy's campaign to protect public health.

Provided exclusive source material, including access to Kennedy’s unpublished writings and personal journals, the author conducted dozens of interviews with him as well as numerous friends and associates. Russell delves into everything from Kennedy’s sometimes death-defying river rafting adventures to his pioneering legal cases against polluters such as Smithfield Foods and Monsanto, while founding the world’s largest water protection group. The Real RFK Jr. also examines Kennedy’s pursuit of the truth about the assassinations of his father and uncle, the wrongful murder conviction of his cousin, and the false narratives around the COVID-19 pandemic.



What would RFK Jr. do about this? I have followed this story from the beginning in 2011. This action does not surprise me:

Japan Begins Secretly Releasing Irradiated Water From Fukushima Disaster Into The Ocean

“And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.”


"The hallmarks of communism are rigged elections; bans on free speech; silencing all dissent; censorship; propaganda; the weaponization of government; forced experimental vaccinations; police state raids on your critics; and arresting your political opponents. Look around. We are there."


Rand Paul and his Daddy both hate central banks, so there are some modern men that think that way too. But, they can't get traction because they are against big banks and Morgan and Chase knows it .

AI implanted in Musk's brain. Good one Emma.



Who we really need is an Andrew Jackson hologram AI.
He's the only President to take on the foreign banking cartel and live to tell about it. He is the only President that zeroed our debt.

An alternative could be an Andrew Jackson AI brain implant into Elon Musk.
The future is ours!


Robert Kennedy Jr can't know everybody Emma. Sure would make it nice if we all had the God power of knowing men's souls.

That said, I know your heart is still set on Trump.
I still like Trump too.
Who could handle the bankers wanting to control us through credit scores? Who could handle Putin and China best? Trump or Kennedy? Right now, I think Trump could.
Who could handle WHO, well Trump cut them off. I am sure Bobby Jr. would too. Would Trump fire the lot of the heads of federal agencies, or does Bobby Kennedy have better ideas how to unravel federal agency capture? He knows the EPA is captured as well. Has the FBI been captured by outside corporations, or are they just political ideologs? Wray and the rest will take some digging to get to what rules their souls. But nothing stays secret forever.

Trump I am pretty sure got hoodwinked by the medical industrial complex. For some reason he caved into Bill Gates. I still am asking that question. HE was on to Dr. Fauci but still did not fire him, why? Maybe he was playing some five D chest game and was up against the public that is so worshipful at the alter of the vaccine temple? I don't know.

So I suggest you root and pray for Robert Kennedy, and if God comes down and personally puts the Democrat candidate pin on Bobby Kennedy then more debates for us to decide.



The country is Lesotho. It is located inside South Africa. I had not heard of it before my relative went there. An interesting choice for the Peace Corps.


@ Barry

A close relative spent two years in Le Soto serving in the Peace Corps. Where did you serve?

I am sure you know the Peace Corps history:

"One of the signature achievements of President John F. Kennedy was creating the Peace Corps, a new agency and a new opportunity for Americans to serve their country and their world. The creation of the Peace Corps dates back to an unexpected moment and impromptu speech in 1961."



Were you aware of this?

1 in 22 now have Autism, over the age of eight. If they looked at younger kids, that number would change drastically. My guess would be around 1 in 15? What's your guess?

Barry Stern

I was supposed to leave the U.S. on Nov. 23, 1963 for my Peace Corps assignment. JFK was killed the previous day, resulting in many federal agencies closing for a week. I traveled to D.C. to spectate the day JFK was buried at Arlington Cemetery. My Peace Corps assignment began on Dec. 2. The experience changed my life, even persuading me to become a lifelong Republican. Nonetheless, I’m a big fan of RFK, Jr. and truthtellers like him. Since I’m sure there are not enough sensible Democrats to nominate him for president, I recommend that the Republican nominee in 2024 select RFK, Jr. as director of a major health care or environmental agency. We need people like him in government to ensure our nation’s survival and prosperity.
