    Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. has chosen Nicole Shanahan as his vice-presidential running mate for the 2024 presidential ticket. 

    Kennedy made his announcement before family, friends, supporters, and the public Tuesday, March 26 at the Henry J. Kaiser Center for the Arts in Oakland, California, not far from where Shanahan spent her early years as a child.

    The vice-presidential candidate is a lawyer, entrepreneur, IT and AI expert, philanthropist, a Mother of a very young child on the autistic spectrum,  and was conscious enough to question her own reactions following her own COVID-19 shot.

    She completed her undergraduate studies at The University of Puget Sound, majoring in BA with a focus on Asian Studies, Economics, and Mandarin Chinese and obtained a WTO certificate from the Geneva Graduate Institute. In 2013, she continued her legal education at the National University of Singapore, specializing in Global IP Trade & Chinese Law. Later, she pursued studies in High-Technology Law, Intellectual Property, and Litigation at Santa Clara University School of Law.

    Shanahan is not only authentic and well-educated, but nothing like Washington, D.C. politicians. She is going to bring strength to the Kennedy/Shanahan ticket and republican, democrats, and other third-party candidates need to take note.

    Whether they succeed is way down the halls of competition, but what showed up in Oakland should make republicans, democratic and other third-party competition question how much authenticity they have. 

    The three-hour event produced a bevy of speakers and supporters who stand shoulder to shoulder with Kennedy. Some of them included: Charlene Nijmeh of the Muwekma Ohione Tribe of the San Francisco and Oakland Bay area, Angela Stanton-King, who was pardoned by Trump; Metta World Peace, the NBA all-star player formerly known as Ron Artest; and Dr. Jay Bhattacharya, a Stanford Medical School professor and co-author of the Great Barrington Declaration, which questions the efficacy of lockdowns during the COVID-19 pandemic. Bhattacharya was part of Republican Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ presidential launch event last year. Now, he is with Kennedy, and others. It was a better lineup than most at either republican or democratic conventions since 1980. They each hit it out of the ballpark explaining who they are and why they are supporting Bobby Kennedy for president. Kennedy and Shanahan spoke for the last hour. 

    When Kennedy spoke, it was the first time a presidential candidate in any party has fully explained the qualities he substantively had been looking for in his vice-presidential choice to push forth his vision and priorities. Kennedy laid it all on the table. 

    Espousing those qualities, Kennedy explained with grace why such qualities were needed to take back the country and defuse the corporate and regulatory captures in America.

    “I found all those qualities in a woman who grew up right here in Oakland,” Kennedy told the audience. 

    Kennedy stressed that Shanahan is concerned about censorship and understands “how Big Tech uses AI to manipulate the public.” 

    That statement should serve as a warning to BIG Tech and the Biden Administration. Kennedy now has someone on his ticket who knows their game from the inside. Let that sink into all defendants Kennedy and his lawyers are suing over censorship. Shanahan was once married to Google co-founder Sergey Brin. They had a relationship for 8 years and were married from 2018-2013 and co-parent their daughter. 

    Kennedy emphasized Shanahan’s commitment to health and fitness and spoke of her being a surfer, athlete, and a “warrior mom” fighting for the health of children. Shanahan said her daughter went from being able to sit up by herself to not being able to sit up in just months. That will resonate with parents of vaxxed-injured children and covid vaxxed-injured and covid whistleblowers and will be noted by those who still push for the normalcy of Gain of Function research, like Dr. Dennis Carroll. Kennedy is coming for those who perpetuate that Frankenstein science. 

    Introducing Shanahan, a former Democrat, like Kennedy, “Our values didn’t change but the Democratic party did,” said Kennedy.

    That though has resonated with alot of democrats - many of whom voted for Trump.

    Shanahan’s mother immigrated to the US from China in 1983. Her first job was taking care of an elderly client. Shanahan shared her late father had mental issues and had a hard time keeping a job. Times were tough. Food stamps were party of the family culture. Shanahan not only survived, she succeeded. 

    Overcoming obstacles and living the American dream is as American as the flag. 

    Kennedy spoke of how proud he was to have Shanahan help him on their “extraordinary crusade to win back our country,” saying she would also stand with him against the military-industrial complex, the Trump-Biden uni-party that has taken over American democracy, and Silicon Valley. 

    Although 38 years of age, Shanahan has picked herself up from her humble beginnings, and now, is accomplished beyond her years. 

    Kennedy explained how he will be counting on Shanahan to win over millennials and Gen Z Americans “who have lost faith in our country.” Kennedy wanted to choose someone “younger.” 

    Together, their path to victory will be “to unite America,” said Kennedy.

    Addressing the audience, Shanahan invited all the “homeless democrats” and “homeless republicans” to join their independent campaign. 

    “The purpose of wealth is to help those in need,” said Shanahan confidently to the applause of Team Kennedy.

    Her intention is to bring her wealth to the campaign to get their ticket on the ballot in every state. 

    Shanahan is the founder of an AI-enabled patent management company, ClearAccessIP, as well as the Bia Echo Foundation. The foundation specializes in three key areas of interest: reproductive longevity and equality, criminal justice reform, and environmental preservation. 

    "A lot of the work I do with my foundation and my venture fund is around human and planetary health. If you look at our portfolio, it's kind of all like, how do we fund women's healthy fertility? How do we not just go to these maximalist public health policies that really forget the importance of the individual?" she told ABC News.

    Shanahan’s and Kennedy’s values align, especially in terms of the environment. Both Shanahan and Kennedy are strong advocates for regenerative agriculture, promoting sustainable farming practices and healthier soil. 

    They are not like Bill Gates pushing that government policies should include injecting cows and pigs with mRNA shots and pushing that people eat bugs as an alternative to meat. Something that Biden is advocating through his policies at World Health Organization. 

    Shanahan has expressed concerns about vaccines and children’s health, and advocates more screening of vaccine risks, something that Bobby Kennedy has advocated for years. 

    Kennedy met face-to-face with Dr. Anthony Fauci well before covid. Fauci claimed that there were vaccine safety trials during this private meeting. Fauci promised to send evidence of the safety trials to Kennedy. They never arrived. Kennedy and his legal team then sued the U.S. government and proved Fauci had lied. The vaccination safety trials do not exist. 

    Although Shanahan does not identify herself as “anti-vax” anymore than Kennedy does, this vice-presidential candidate authentically admits that she wonders about vaccine injuries, especially after experiencing some “significant health issues” after receiving her own mRNA vaccine, as reported by Newsweek. Shanahan further believes that the media labeling Kennedy as an “anti-vaxxer” is “alienating the progressive voter from his campaign,” especially since what Kennedy is promoting is vaccine safety and more scientific research. 

    Shanahan contributed $4 million toward the American Values 2024 Super Bowl ad in support of Kennedy’s candidacy.  

    Bobby Kennedy moved the chessboard Tuesday by choosing Nicole Shanahan and it should not be lost on those who censored him and his message for years. Kennedy chose someone inside the very camp that has relentlessly censored and defamed him with fervor. 

    Kennedy’s choice is as strong a signal to Washington politicians as when he responded to the democrats in Congress who defamed him when he testified during the weaponization of government censorship hearing months ago. Kennedy is no light-weight to the contact sport of politics. 

    The Kennedy/Shanahan message is clear that their ticket represents standing up to Silicon Vally, K Street lobbyists, regulatory agencies, central banks, Wall Street from State Street to BlackRock to Vanguard, Big Tech, and legalized bribery, to free the country from the predatory cabal. 

    Kennedy has clearly thrown down the gavel - Game On!

    Kennedy knows that the democratic war chest against him will grow from $1.1 billion today to $3 billion as will the republican’s war chest. He said so in Oakland. He exposed his opponents and knows their game.

    The Democratic National Committee is gearing up to take on Kennedy and other third-party options, including No Labels, a well-funded group working to recruit a centrist ticket. The Democratic National Committee’s effort is overseen by veteran strategist Mary Beth Cahill, who was Chief of Staff to the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy of Massachusetts, RFK Jr.'s uncle. Cahill was also brought into the 2004 John Kerry presidential campaign and resurrected that campaign at a pivotal point although Kerry went onto to lose the presidential race to George W. Bush. Cahill will be supported by Joe Trippi, a hand-ons democratic political operative who has been around for years, who is joining forces with republicans and democrats who are focused on winning the race for Biden. 

    The Kenned/Shanahan ticket is calling for Americans to not vote out of fear, but vote for “conscience, heart and idealism.”

    Shanahan stated it succinctly. 

    “This campaign is about what is “sacred - health, families, land.,” and she is committed to putting their ticket on every ballot across America to “serve peace and help those in poverty,” and end the wars and censorship.

    According to Kennedy’s campaign website, he is on the ballot in Utah and has collected enough signatures to be on the ballots in New Hampshire and Nevada. In order to gain ballot access in a number of states, Kennedy is required to name a running mate, just like any other independent party ticket. Those states include: Alabama, California, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Nebraska, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin, along with DC. All allow a placeholder vice-presidential candidate to be named, except for Hawaii and South Dakota. Getting their ticket on ballots is an arduous and expensive tasks and will require tens of millions. Shanahan stated that she is all in to help. 

    But, not all of those who supported Bobby’s ticket agrees with Kennedy’s choice of Shanahan. 

    James Howard Kunstler, a writer and the Mark Twain social critic of our day is not sold on Shanahan. 

    Kunstler and his girlfriend believed in Bobby Kennedy’s campaign when he tossed his hat into the ring for the presidency in April 2023. Although a registered democrat, who was on the streets of Chicago during the 1968 Democratic Convention protesting against the Vietnam War, Kunstler stayed with Kennedy’s campaign even when Kennedy decided to run as an independent in October 2023. He was so committed that he was willing to help get Kennedy on the ballot in New York State. Kunstler is now “hesitant….will have to wait and see.”

    Kunstler was supporting Kennedy because of his “authenticity.” 

    He did not like Shanahan’s giggling during her speech on Tuesday. He is now reflecting if Shanahan is the right choice if the situation ever called for her stepping in and serving as President. 

    “I’m hesitant” said Kunstler during an interview on CDM’s Globalists In Plain Sight, which will air on Sunday, March 31 at noon EDT. 

    When asked who is his alternative, Kunstler answered, “Trump.” 

    The 2024 presidential may be bumpy and dramatic, but what is proving to be proven true is that the 2024 presidential race will be fascinating no matter how many bricks are thrown in this political cycle. 

    The Kennedy/Shanahan ticket is a game-changer. Who it helps or hurts will be decided down the road. If a registered democrat like Kunstler could switch to Kennedy and then possibly switch to Trump, anything is possible.

    Nicole Shanahan, is a six-figure donor to... George Gascon, pro-crime, Soros-backed prosecutor who helped wreck San Fran / currently wrecking LA. She also spent big on Measure J, LA measure to reroute spending from law enforcement and prisons to “social services” and “mental health treatment” — in other words, not putting criminals and dangerous psychos behind bars. This is a far-left

    I dont normally answer comments, but Anne, I am responding.

    What's your point to repost Kirk's twitter? Ive covered politics longer than Charlie Kirk has been alive. When I covered my first presidential race at ABC News in 1980 Ed Rollins brought in democratic voters to the Reagan campaign. Im not surprised anyone giving to progressives may change their minds. I know folks who believed Bill Gates and George/Alex Soros and contributed money to progressive groups who changed their minds.


    There are numerous reasons why I would never vote for this duet. God guides my decision making. Those that claim there are pro choice endorse genocide. Genocide that makes money over selling parts. The Chinese harvesting parts from the Uyghurs and most Americans condemn that. As we all should. But not for those that suffer the same fate in the US. Lastly, electing two lawyers strikes me as something only a sadist would hope for. Lawyers, in my opinion, work only to win. Who will be the losers?

    This article is about political dynamics. Ive cover human trafficking (HT) including organ traffiicking for 24 years in 140 countries before HT was in the civilized vernacular. I disagree with yr statement -Most Americans condemn the Chinese harvesting parts from Uyghurs." US is legalizing child mutilation legalizing/normalizing trans operations without parental consent. Any person/institution pushing a child to "keep a secret from parent" is engaged in predatory behavior. Perverts do that.

    Quoting Kennedy - "the Trump-Biden uni-party that has taken over American democracy".

    A more false, disingenuous statement has never been written. Trump is the antithesis of the uni-party, and Kennedy is well aware of that fact. Dog-whistle words to agitate. And America is a constitutional Republic, with a (severely damaged) democratic electoral system, not "a democracy".

    I do wish that American election campaigns were capped at 60 days.
