Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. told Spotify podcaster Joe Rogan that he takes “precautions” to keep the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) from assassinating him.
Kennedy has often said that both his uncle, former president John F. Kennedy, and his father Robert F. Kennedy, were assassinated by the agency, and he discussed it again with Rogan on Thursday’s podcast.
During the episode, he said that his uncle realized quickly during his presidency that “the purpose of the CIA and the intelligence apparatus was to create a constant pipeline of new wars for the military industrial complex.”
Kennedy said that JFK wanted to “shatter” the CIA after they reportedly lied to him about covertly battling Cuba during 1961’s Bay of Pigs Invasion and he refused send military support.
He noted that his uncle spent the rest of his presidency battling with his military advisors, because he believed that “the view of Americans abroad should not be a soldier with a gun, it should be a Peace Corps volunteer building wells.”
Kennedy said that the United States should currently be “projecting economic power around the globe and not military power.”
“It will make us much stronger,” he surmised.
Rogan asked him what he thinks would happen to him if he manages to successfully win the presidency.

“You’re talking about your uncle, who was assassinated and you believe the intelligence agencies were a part of that,” he questioned. “What happens to you?”
“I gotta be careful,” Kennedy remarked. “I’m aware of that, I’m aware of that danger. I don’t live in fear of it — at all. But I’m not stupid about it and I take precautions.”
In May, Kennedy told an interviewer that he blamed the CIA for his uncle’s assassination.
“I think there is overwhelming evidence that the CIA was involved in his murder,” Kennedy said about JFK’s 1963 assassination.
“I think it’s beyond a reasonable doubt at this point.”
“The evidence is overwhelming that the CIA was involved in the murder and in the cover-up.”
Joe Rogan TURNS on Biden Regime after PROOF of CRIMES revealed:
“All the stuff with his son and the ties to Ukraine and China and the money. The family, they got paid millions of dollars and everyone was trying to obscure it"

In a separate discussion with Fox News’ Sean Hannity he said that “It was my father’s first instinct that the agency had killed his brother.”
“There’s millions of pages of documents — of, uh, CIA documents, of, uh, transcripts, of recorded conversations from, uh, the Cuban embassy in, in Mexico City, from — it’s hard to summarize the evidence,” he said during the Hannity segment.
“There are confessions of people who are directly involved in the plot, who were involved in the planning of the plot, uh, who were peripherals to the plot, uh, there’s a 60-year cover-up,” Kennedy concluded.
Earlier this week, Rogan took aim at President Joe Biden for what he believed is a double-standard of corruption allegations versus how former President Donald Trump is treated.
You go back and listen to that guy lying about his education record and lying about his accomplishments. He’s always been a problem!” Rogan told comedian Theo Von.
“And also, all the f***ing stuff with his son and the ties to Ukraine and China and the money. The family, they got paid millions of dollars and everyone was trying to obscure it because, ‘Well, better than Trump. Better than Trump,’” he continued.
“If that guy was a Republican, they would be up his a** with a microscope!”
When Von said that the double-standard was “unbelievable,” Rogan passionately continued.
“He represents what they thought was like a sane alternative to what President Trump was,” he posited.
“They thought, ‘This is insane, Donald Trump is the president? F*** that, anything’s better than him,'” Rogan concluded.
“And so they went with this corrupt career politician.”
