Is RFK Jr. a World Federalist?

Let’s look at the evidence, past and present. The devil may be hidden in some conveniently forgotten history—and the details of his proposed peace policies. Because RFK, Jr., AKA Bobby, is running on the political legacy of his uncle and father, it is fair to explore their positions on world government first.

Bobby’s uncle, John F. Kennedy, was a world federalist. He cosponsored the World Federation resolution in 1949 when he was a U.S. Representative. As a Senator, JFK consistently supported efforts to call a general review conference under Article 109 of the UN Charter to strengthen it. As President, he called for general and complete disarmament before the UN General Assembly on September 25, 1961. He declared—”To destroy arms, however, is not enough. We must create even as we destroy—creating worldwide law and law enforcement as we outlaw worldwide war and weapons.”

Bobby’s father, Senator Robert F. Kennedy, was an Atlantic Unionist. Senator Kennedy declared his support for the Atlantic Union Resolution on April 8, 1968 when he was running for President. RFK declared—”The fulfillment of which I then spoke could well take the form of a federal union of the Atlantic Nations. The Atlantic Union Resolution affords us the opportunity to study this intriguing concept. I urge the proposal’s adoption.”[1]

Now let’s look at Bobby’s motive to end the war against Ukraine. The italicized text is taken from his campaign website.

“In Ukraine, the most important priority is to end the suffering of the Ukrainian people, victims of a brutal Russian invasion, and also victims of American geopolitical machinations going back at least to 2014.”

It appears Bobby shares Professor John Mearsheimer’s critique of NATO enlargement at the expense of Russia. His willingness to say Putin started the war, but globalists own it, suggests he is critical of the Maidan coup and how globalists used NATO to antagonize Putin. Bobby has no love for the Atlantic Pact, in 2023 he said—“It is insane to even keep NATO going.” Perhaps he would rather transform it into an Atlantic Union based on federalist principles? I don’t know, yet.

 The next step is to explore the goal of his peace policy.

“We must first get clear: Is our mission to help the brave Ukrainians defend their sovereignty? Or is it to use Ukraine as a pawn to weaken Russia? Kennedy will choose the first.”

It is revealing that Bobby left out regime change in Russia as a possible end goal. Globalists, after all, hide behind democratic peace theory to justify their democratic wars and color revolutions. Without regime change in Russia, globalists cannot “save the planet” from climate change by forcing all of us to abide by their rules. Neither can Bobby if he becomes President of the United States.

The next step is to analyze Bobby’s solution.

He will find a diplomatic solution that brings peace to Ukraine and brings our resources back where they belong. We will offer to withdraw our troops and nuclear-capable missiles from Russia’s borders. Russia will withdraw its troops from Ukraine and guarantee its freedom and independence. UN peacekeepers will guarantee peace to the Russian-speaking eastern regions. We will put an end to this war. We will put an end to the suffering of the Ukrainian people.

Bobby clearly has an affinity for the United Nations. This leads me to believe he subscribes to the dreams of his uncle rather than father. This is further supported by his campaign statement—”That will be the start of a broader program of demilitarization of all countries.

The verdict is not yet in. Independent journalists must ask Bobby to clarify the terms of his broader program of demilitarization of all countries. While I suspect he embraces the ideology of “world peace through world law,” I will give him the benefit of the doubt for now. An alternative to a UN police force, after all, is all countries eliminating their standing armies in favor of reserve forces—like the Swiss militia model.

Bobby must disclose his world order preference in the remote chance he will shape it after World War Three.
