Announcing the Launch of RFKJrNews.com

ANOTHER *NEW* SITE GOES LIVE OCT. 1

GUARANTEED TO FLOAT BETTER THAN A LED ZEPPELIN

Okay, so it’s not exactly as earth-shattering as the news that Led Zeppelin might be doing a reunion tour next summer after all (I mean, that’s BIG!), but we do have a pretty darn important annnouncement for you:

On October 1st, RFKJrNews.com will be born into our ever-growing family tree of websites, and we think you’ll like it.

RFKJrNews.com will be an important news and information source for Kennedy’s supporters who want the very latest on what Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is up to – where he’s speaking, what he’s saying, what he’s doing – and why you should care.

Over the past year, the RFKJrforPresident.com website has provided this service as a way to keep Bobby’s fans informed and involved, and your response to our efforts has truly been amazing. Our editorial staff finally decided it was time to have a separate sister site devoted exclusively to coverage of RFK Jr. News, while keeping this site focused on its’ original mission: to convince Mr. Kennedy to run for president.

After October 1st, the Kennedy for President site will remain online with links to our petition drive and articles relating to the presidential race, but gradually you will notice the majority of our daily news coverage moving over to the RFKJrNews.com site.

Our story archives and your comments have already been moved over to RFKJrNews.com. Of course, the archives and comments will remain on this server forever as well.

Now seems a perfect time to make the move, as the 2008 presidential election season moves into its’ final month. With talk of a run in 2012 already in the air, we’re re-tooling the mission of the Kennedy for President website and our petition drive to reflect that. Meanwhile, we wish to keep Bobby’s supporters informed on the latest news, so we think the RFKJrNews.com site will serve that purpose nicely.

Of course, you can expect the same quality reporting, timeliness, responsiveness and smart-ass, cutting commentary you’ve come to expect from us on the new site. As our team of volunteers, readers and editors continues to grow, so does our mission and our goals for the future. We’re so glad to have all of you on board, hope you will enjoy the new RFKJrNews.com site, and that you will post your thoughts there often!

RFKJrNews.com is destined to become our flagship site over the months ahead, so come grow with us.

And don’t forget to keep our sister sites in your bookmarks as well:

And if you have a news tip or RFK-related story you’d like to submit to any of our sites, please drop an email to our managing editor, Tiger Haynes.

Thanks for reading this important announcement, enjoy the new site, and crank up that Zeppelin, dude!

* Enjoy this rare performance of Zep in their prime from Earls Court, May 25, 1975.

(What kind of “plant” is Robert smoking there, anyway? Hmm…?) 

PS – Don’t want to break any hearts here, but I have it on very good authority from an unimpeachable source (this blog’s own Founding Editor, New Frontier, herself a musician of some renown) that the Zeppelin reunion rumor is, alas, only a rumor this time. She confirmed it with Mr. Plant personally backstage at the Austin City Limits festival Saturday night…

    Led-Zeppelin, in a time “far far away” (so far away)… “people turned away”… (so far away, so far away…)

    We , the same people who (for some of us), have been ‘mentored’ through the expansion of our minds and hearts during the real time exposure to Led Zeppelin, have had a unique perspective on tolerance, open-mindedness and opportunity through our various experiences during ‘that time’. “We” have fond memories of exploration into real peace, real purpose and real exposure to a world that was looking like it might need a “whole lotta love”…

    Where did “we” go?… I ‘inhaled’, big time, but I didn’t drink any koolaid… Maybe a little electric koolaid but not the kind that took me away from believing in and loving my country. I don’t partake in recreational enhancements any more, havent for many years now… I wouldn’t have had those ‘Years gone by’ any other way though.

    “We” have not been lost, nor have “we” been altered to a point that “we” cannot be brought back to a time and place where we can once again become unified in a cooperative spirit required to bring our country (and maybe our world) back on track, at least or to make real changes in how we go forward from here… “this is the place that no one goes…”

    To say that we are lost is an indication that something is vastly wrong in our common goals and objectives as a country. At a Led Zep concert, there isn’t Democrats and Republicans.. there are people who are entrenched in a common and unifying force.. a complete and total agreement for the verve and the intent for which the “Song remains the same”. Who doesn’t get “prickly” when “Stairway to Heaven” turns on its tempo, where it grabs ‘another gear’… “and as we wind on down the road…”

    I’d vote for the candidate that used “Kashmire” as the 2012 election theme song for sure… Implying a house cleaning and a force of unified / patriot Americans to face down corruption and greed with rule of law, accountablility, transparency and real Presidential “Coda”… A ‘Black Dog’ for a symbol wouldn’t be bad either.

    “and she’s buy- aye-ing… a stair-air-way… to Heaven….”

    Let’s Roll…

  2. How right you are, Jack. At a Zeppelin show, you won’t find much yakety-yak about politics. Republican, Democrat — who cares? — we’re here to Rock and Roll, baby! (Been a long time…)

    If only we could come together like that out here in the dog-eat-Black Dog real world to “bring the balance back”, because folks, this *is* the Battle of Evermore.

    What we’re got here is a Communication Breakdown between the people and their elected representatives.

    We may be feeling somewhat Dazed and Confused at the moment, but we need to let `em know that squeezing this Reaganonomic lemon `til the juice trickles down our leg is Achilles’ Last Stand.

    We’ve got to fight and give No Quarter. Do it not just for your money. Do it For Your Life, lest you wind up a Fool in the Rain & get Trampled Underfoot when those bulls and bears scramble for cover.

    If you’re Sick Again of being ignored by Congress, now is the time to call or write both Houses (of the Holy) and ask, “How Many More Times?”

    Tell them What Is and What Should Never Be, that they had better Bring It On Home for ordinary Americans…for if they don’t you’ll be saying, “Babe, I’m Gonna Leave You” this November.

    Your Time is Gonna Come, Congress, Mr. Bush, Mr. Cheney, Mr. Paulson. We know you’ll have to Ramble On soon, that you’ll be running to escape a flood of subpoenas and prosecutions for your crimes, that you’ll be Southbound Suarez to some nice vacation house Over the Hills and Far Away on a Black Mountainside in South America. Some small island with no extradition treaty; divvying up the Custard Pie; still vainly believing all that glitters is gold. Buying a Stairway to Heaven.

    Friends, we’ve got to keep truth In the Light. Although some of us would likely love to clobber `em with Four Sticks, bring the Hammer of the Gods down upon them and hang `em from the Gallows Pole, we must employ a strategy of nonviolent peaceful resistance. That’s the Way It Oughta Be…

    But we must act swiftly and decicively, because When the Levee Breaks, there’ll be no time for asking, “well, Dy’er Maker?”

    I know that if I don’t act now, Wall Street will have it’s Celebration Day, and I’ll soon be drinking Tea for One, knowing it was Nobody’s Fault But Mine.

    So Hot Dog! — snap out of the Ozone, Baby and get on the horn — start Wearing and Tearing. Break the Congressional web server and switchboard again, and keep doing it until they get the message.

    The Senate is set to vote on the economic Wall St. Bailout package (now re-named the less-offensive-sounding “Economic Rescue Plan for Main Street” by those who continue to pimp for it) Wednesday.

    Crikey! That’s tomorrow! Bloody `ell, better speak up QUICK, peeps! We haven’t much time!

    So glad I still have this place to vent from time to time with like-minded Friends. Even after leaving the editor’s post to Boogie With Stu, it turns out I Can’t Quit You, Babies…I still come here In The Evening to blog out my thoughts as a member of this wonderful community. No matter what else in my life changes, the Song Remains The Same around here, and I for one am glad of it!

    Thank You for staying with us through Good Times and Bad Times…

    All My Love to you,

    New Frontier

    (who was truly sad to learn from Mr. Plant that he’ll be taking 2 years off from the road instead of reuniting with Zep… Kinda rained on my Swan Song, but Hey, Hey, What Can I Do?)

    * Oh, almost forgot! The topic of this post!!! Congrats on launching the new RFKJrNews.com site! Hats Off To (Tiger) Haynes! As John Bonham once said, “We’ve done four already, and now we’re steady, and then they went…one, two, three, four…” You know the rest! Bah-bah-ba-du-dum!….

    Valhalla, I am coming!

    Wow, top show!! That has got to be the best working of 45 Led Zeppelin song titles into a single topical post I’ve ever seen.

    Nicely done, NF!

    Cheers,

    Gregg

    YESSS!

    My husband woke me just in time to see Bobby Jr this a.m. on the Today Show talking about his book, American Heroes – Robert Smalls. Sounds like a great book…someone’s going to get them for Christmas!

    Great interview, Bobby’s got so much passion….
    I mean really, wouldn’t he have made a Great VP?
    Can’t you picture the debate with Ms Joe Sixpack?
