Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. said that climate-related issues are being “exploited” by wealthy individuals in a bid to enact “totalitarian controls” over society.
“Climate issues and pollution issues are being exploited by … mega billionaires” like Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, Kennedy told radio host Kim Iversen over the past weekend. “The same way that COVID was exploited to use it as an excuse to clamp down top-down totalitarian controls on society and then to give us engineering solutions.”
“And if you look closely, as it turns out, the guys who are promoting those engineering solutions are the people who own … the patents for those solutions,” Kennedy said during Iversen’s show. “It’s a way they’ve given climate chaos a bad name because people now see that it’s just another crisis that’s being used to strip mine the wealth of the poor and to enrich billionaires.”
“I, for 40 years, have had the same policy on climate and engineering,” said Kennedy, the scion of former Attorney General and New York Sen. Robert F. Kennedy. “You can go check my speeches from the 1980s, and I’ve said the most important solution for environmental issues [is] not top-down controls, it’s free market capitalism.”
Kennedy—a longtime environmental activist and lawyer—wrote in a 2014 blog post for corporations and other groups that “sponsor climate lies” should face punishment. But he wrote that he “support[s] the First Amendment which makes room for any citizen to, even knowingly, spew far more vile lies without legal consequence” before adding at the time: “I do, however, believe that corporations which deliberately, purposefully, maliciously, and systematically sponsor climate lies should be given the death penalty,” Kennedy wrote for EcoWatch.
Kennedy’s comments about climate change years ago were highlighted by Fox News and other right-leaning publications after he declared his candidacy for president last month. Although he’s better known for his comments about childhood vaccines, Kennedy worked as an environmental lawyer for New York City and also for the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC).
Also in the Iversen interview, Kennedy suggested that other than Gates, the World Economic Forum is also exploiting climate-related policies to produce a totalitarian society. The Davos, Switzerland-based group hosts annual meetings each year that include world leaders and top business executives, while in January, speakers at the forum said that governments and businesses should pursue a “net-zero” policy around carbon emissions and that people don’t need cars.
“What we have in this country now is not free market capitalism—it’s corporate crony capitalism. It’s … a cushy kind of socialism for the rich and a brutal, barbaric, merciless capitalism for the poor,” Kennedy also stated in the interview.

How sweetly and dutifully he holds up the banner of left/right, hiding under the ‘morality’ of loving and protecting mother earth and its people. It matters to me not what he is now saying about the ‘climate change’ objectives or even about the evils of present-day ‘vaccines.’ To see his face disturbs me. To experience his flip/flops is also disturbing.
But what disturbs me more are those who are buying in, who see another savior who will slay the enemy. But Bobby Jr. has yet to NAME the enemy. And Bobby is inviting Americans to get ready to VOTE, that is to say, to sanction a practice that holds up a system that is not only false and corrupt but exists to steal from and oppress the very people it deceives into VOTING!!
Well, he is a lawyer serving the admiralty. And oh yeah… He wants to be a champion of the poor. Net worth—-> $60 MILLION!! So they say.
Is Bobby talking about The Bill of Rights? Crickets.
There is only one thing left for us to do.
Yep, the ‘one thing’ of many methods and modalities.
This Lying Stuttering so called Representative of the people is the New Face for the Left & Right Wings of the same Criminal Bird called US Gooberment SINdycate INC. or False Paradigm Illusion known as Democrat & Republican INC. He will sure tell you whats going on but will not use any of his so-called powers to file charges & arrest anyone will he. He is a complicite acomplice to this crime. You are nothing but a Wealthy Cheese eating Rat just like the others feeding from the traitor trough !! Go Bend a Knee to King Chuck you Traitor & take the rest of the Scallywags with you when you go. We will only follow the Bill of Rights in these united States of America. You & the so-called people you actually represent Days are Numbered here so Leave Now before its to late !!!
