Here is my forthcoming American Free Press article, posted in full for paid subscribers only. -KB
Many years ago, when former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura appeared on my radio show, I made the mistake of introducing him as “that rare bird, an honest politician.” Ventura hotly denied being a politician. Instead, he said, he aspired to be a statesman.
What is the difference between a politician and a statesman? According to Wikipedia, “Politicians are thought of as people who will say or do anything to get elected...(whereas) to call a person a statesman is a mark of high regard for that person's integrity.”
The world is full of politicians but short on statesmen. It is always a minor miracle when a person of integrity rises to power, or even gets anywhere near it.
Today, two profoundly corrupt nations—the USA and Pakistan—have been blessed by true statesmen. Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and Imran Khan are challenging corrupt deep states. Both men are risking their lives: The most powerful people in both countries would rather see them in the grave than the presidency.
