Democrat Vote Fraud Plan Exposed!

An American Values Special...

Still smarting from Al Gore's narrow loss to George Bush in the controversial Florida 2000 election, a Democrat plan to rig the 2004 elections has been discovered. Not satisfied with winning just the White House, this scheme extends to the Senate, the House of Representatives, Governorships, city mayors, town councilmen & yes, even dog catcher positions.

The Democrats for too long have been known to urge the dead to vote in elections. In fact, one soon to be dead Democrat was quoted as saying, "When I die I want to be buried in Chicago, because I want to remain active in politics."

For years this was wildly successful. But now an even more nefarious plan is afoot. The idea is simplicity in itself.

"One person, one vote" is what we expect in our elections. The Democrats, however, have found a way to change this into "One person, five votes". With a little fudging they are well on their way to achieving it.

Our intrepid investigative reporter, Jessica, managed to retrieve a photo(below) that shows positive proof of their sinister effort.

American Values urges all Republicans to contact their representatives in Congress to prevent this outrage. Or they can drink the same water the Democrats do. Then come election day the playing field will be level again.

Homeland Security Fails To Protect Borders

Illegal Aliens Still Crossing Border

As the above surveillance camera photo shows, illegal aliens are still crossing our borders. And we have to ask ourselves, what is Homeland Security doing about it? Who is checking to see if they are terrorist aliens? Are they smuggling Phasers or Photon-Torpedoes to do us ill? It's about time that greater attention is paid to this threat from the sky.

Kerry Entertains The Troops - Anything For A Vote

The Pride of Pumpkin Patch

An American Values News exclusive...

Roundly criticized for his 1971 traitorous bashing of the troops in the Vietnam War, John Kerry recently traveled to Pumpkin Patch Army Base in a bid to win over the military vote. The Presidential hopeful performed a variety of acts that he felt sure would "knock 'em dead", as he said.

The show was held in a barn because Mr. Kerry wanted to demonstrate that he was a man of the common people & that despite owning three multi-million dollar mansions, he was not elitist. The show was delayed briefly while Mr. Kerry flew in his French barber for one of those famous $1,000 haircuts.

He began his performance with a mind-blowing rendition of "We are the Gourd", to the thunderous applause of the three members of the audience. Following this, Mr.Kerry recited a pumpkin pie recipe in rap because, as he so eloquently stated once, "I'm fascinated by rap."

The show continued with Mr. Kerry doing a soft shoe dance with pumpkin seeds on the stage floor, rather than the traditional sand (Photo above).

In a later interview with the audience, Mr. Kerry responded to a question about his favorite dessert by saying, "Well, I hated apple pie, but that was before I liked it." When asked why he was wearing a pumpkin he replied, "Do you really want to look at this face?"

The Presidential contender was asked about gay gourd marriage, to which he replied, "I will not allow my Catholic beliefs to stand in the way of my Catholic beliefs." In response to a question on Global Warming, he misunderstood & answered that, "Of course I'm in favor of it. All carved pumpkins need a candle in them. The kids love it."

Mr. Kerry left the theater after shaking paws with the audience members & what he felt were three sure votes for him. After leaving, Mr. Kerry plans to take his act to Hollywood, where Michael Moore has promised him a "significant part" in his latest movie, "Pie In The Sky Hopes."

Bush Pauses To Comfort Teen

(The Cincinnati Enquirer | Thursday, May 6, 2004 | Kristina Goetz)

In a moment largely unnoticed by the throngs of people in Lebanon waiting for autographs from the president of the United States, George W. Bush stopped to hold a teenager's head close to his heart.
Lynn Faulkner, his daughter, Ashley, and their neighbor, Linda Prince, eagerly waited to shake the president's hand Tuesday at the Golden Lamb Inn. He worked the line at a steady campaign pace, smiling, nodding and signing autographs until Prince spoke:

"This girl lost her mom in the World Trade Center on 9-11."

Bush stopped and turned back.

"He changed from being the leader of the free world to being a father, a husband and a man," Faulkner said. "He looked right at her and said, 'How are you doing?' He reached out with his hand and pulled her into his chest."

Faulkner snapped one frame with his camera.

"I could hear her say, 'I'm OK,' " he said. "That's more emotion than she has shown in 2 1/2 years. Then he said, 'I can see you have a father who loves you very much.' "

"And I said, 'I do, Mr. President, but I miss her mother every day.' It was a special moment."

Special for Lynn Faulkner because the Golden Lamb was the place he and his wife, Wendy Faulkner, celebrated their anniversary every year until she died in the south tower of the World Trade Center, where she had traveled for business.

The day was also special for Ashley, a 15-year-old Mason High School student, because the visit was reminiscent of a trip she took four years ago with her mother and Prince. They spent all afternoon in the rain waiting to see Bush on the campaign trail. Ashley remembers holding her mother's hand, eating Triscuits she packed and bringing along a book in case she got bored.

But this time was different. She understood what the President was saying, and she got close enough to see him face to face.

"The way he was holding me, with my head against his chest, it felt like he was trying to protect me," Ashley said. "I thought, 'Here is the most powerful guy in the world, and he wants to make sure I'm safe.' I definitely had a couple of tears in my eyes, which is pretty unusual for me."

The photo has been circulating across the country, Faulkner said. Relatives have passed it on to friends, bosses and acquaintances. As they tell the story, they also share in Wendy Faulkner's legacy, which her family continues through the Wendy Faulkner Memorial Children's Foundation.

"I'm a pretty cynical and jaded guy at this point in my life," Faulkner said of the moment with the President. "But this was the real deal. I was really impressed. It was genuine and from the heart."

In Defense of the Family

The Massachusetts governor stands up for marriage.

By Maggie Gallagher

Mitt Romney is a brave man.

Gov. Romney was in Washington, D.C., making the single most eloquent and articulate defense of our traditional understanding of marriage I have heard from an American politician. "Like me, the great majority of Americans wish both to preserve the traditional definition of marriage and to oppose bias and intolerance directed towards gays and lesbians," Romney began by way of preface.

Then he asked the question we should all be asking: "Given the decision of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court. . . Should we abandon marriage as we know it and as it was known by the framers of our Constitution? Has America been wrong about marriage for 200 plus years? Were generations that spanned thousands of years from all the civilizations of the world wrong about marriage? Are the philosophies and teachings of all the world's major religions simply wrong? Or is it more likely that four people among the seven that sat in a court in Massachusetts have erred? I believe that is the case."

Then Mitt Romney put his finger on where the error comes from: the limited perspectives of lawyers and judges. "They viewed marriage as an institution principally designed for adults. Adults are who they saw. Adults stood before them in the courtroom. And so they thought of adult rights, equal rights for adults. If heterosexual adults can marry, then homosexual adults must also marry to have equal rights."

But, he went on, marriage is not solely for adults. "Marriage is also for children. In fact, marriage is principally for the nurturing and development of children. The children of America have the right to have a father and a mother."
The advocates tell us the skies have not fallen in Massachusetts; nothing has changed, they assure us. Romney points out that small things have already begun to change, foretelling the bigger, sadder changes to come. First, the marriage licenses change so they no longer read husband and wife but "Party A" and "Party B." The Department of Health insists that birth certificates also change. The line for mother and father becomes "Parent A" and "Parent B."

So far the governor has resisted, but ultimately the same court that could see no reason why marriage involves a husband and wife other than "animus" will decide whether or not we still think the language of mothers and fathers is appropriate. And the Massachusetts supreme court has already laid down a marker in this case: In Goodridge the court ruled that something called the "presumption of parentage" is one of the rights of marriage. Until that ruling, there was nothing called the presumption of parentage in the law. The traditional marriage idea was the "presumption of paternity" — that is, the husband is presumed by law to be the father of any baby his wife has.

But how can same-sex marriages really be viewed as the equivalent of husband-and-wife unions if we cling to such outmoded, biologically rooted notions of parenthood?

The transformation of mother and father into "Parent A" and "Parent B" is the model of the paradigm shift now underway in Massachusetts. The distinctive features of the union of male and female are going to have to be removed from our notions of marriage and family. The experience of same-sex couples will become the new norm for family life, because the "unisex" idea that gender has no public significance is the only model that can be construed as "inclusive" of both opposite-sex and same-sex unions. The result is not neutrality but the active promotion of a new unisex ideal, in which the distinctive features of opposite-sex relations will be submerged, marginalized, cast to one side, and redefined as discrimination in order to protect the new court-ordered public moral standard of the equality of same-sex and opposite-sex couples.

Here's Gov. Romney's estimate of the future: "[C]hanging the definition of marriage to include same-sex unions will lead to further far-reaching changes that also would influence the development of our children. For example, school textbooks and classroom instruction may be required to assert absolute societal indifference between traditional marriage and same-sex practice."

The gap between civil and religious marriage will widen to a chasm, just at the time the state more than ever needs the help of faith communities in strengthening marriage. "Among the structures that would be affected would be religious and certain charitable institutions. Those with scriptural or other immutable founding principles will be castigated. Ultimately, some may founder. We need more from these institutions, not less, and particularly so to support and strengthen those in greatest need."

The change has begun: The needs and desires of a tiny fraction of adults in alternative families are becoming the basis of a new moral norm. Anyone who departs from it risks thundering denunciation from self-righteous elites who are no longer satisfied with tolerance and civility — living with our deepest differences — but wish to impose their vision of morality on the majority.

Which makes Mitt Romney a very brave man, indeed.

Muzzled Muslims

The recent beheadings/murders of kidnap victims by Arab terrorist scum once again brings to the forefront the obvious point that these so called humans must be treated as the sub species garbage that they are. Annihilation of this puke must be carried out whenever & where ever they are found. There is no accommodation with them. We know what must be done.

What is curious is that the general Muslim/Arab population says nary a word about these slaughters in the name of Allah, in the name of their religion. Not only are they collectively silent about these outrages, but also silent about the car bombings, the suicide bombings & the other terrorist acts committed. Why is this so?

Clearly, the Muslim clerics, Ayotallahs, Sheiks & other leaders should be vocally outraged by these crimes, especially since they are the defenders of their religion. But the silence abides.

The general Muslim population does not speak out & the Arab & Muslim media do not speak out. In fact the Arab media can be counted on to encourage this behavior. Why is all this so?

A very small part of the answer is implied threats or intimidation by the more radical elements of Islam. Part of the answer is a general disdain for all things Western, more specifically focused on the USA & its' support of Israel. Another part is the actual support these muderous thugs receive from the Muslim community.

The acquiescence to terror by the Muslin people & the leadership makes a mockery of their religion - a religion of peace as they profess it. They are accessories to this terror & culpable in the deaths of thousands, including fellow Muslims.

And I don't want to here about their suffering under colonization or the exploitation of them by other nations or the bit about the evil Israelis who kill Palestinians. The issue here is terror & murder by these radical pigs.

Many in the world, especially the people of the USA, now see Islam as a radical cult, a joke of a religion which is harbor only to crazies & thugs. This is the price paid for Muslim silence.

By paying only lip service to their beliefs they hurt not only the victims of terror, but the validity of their beliefs. In the case of murderous terror, silence in not golden. It is way beyond time to unwrap from their mouths the invisible muslin of the Muslims.

What Green Really Wants....

The color Green found true love. Green wanted none other. Green also found a satisfying sexual relationship after a long & unfulfilled series of one night stands & relationships that went nowhere. Green was ready to settle down for life.

The object of affection for Green was, well.....another Green.

Yes. The two Greens met in a Green club. It was love at first blush (which would be the color green, by the way). After a whirlwind romance they were ready to commit to each other.

They decided it was time to get married. But, woe to them -
marriage was not allowed for 2 Greens. Red & Blue can marry, Orange & Brown can marry, Black & Blue can marry. Even some Greens marry other colors to hide their Greenness (closet Greens - which is different than Drag Greens). But sorry to say, same-color Greens cannot.

The Greens were only a tiny, tiny fraction of the spectrum, 3-5 percent, maybe. The other colors that made up the vast majority of the spectrum married freely amongst each other. This hetero-color population overwhelmingly disapproved of homo-color marriage. They were not advocating discrimination of Greens. But marriage was a unique institution designed legally, religiously, biologically, anthropologically & culturally for hetero-colors. And they could make baby hues, something two greens would find impossible no matter how hard they tried to blend.

The Greens, on the other hand, saw this as blatant discrimination & a violation of their equal colors. They were not satisfied that they were offered 'color unions'. They were not satisfied that they now had the opportunity to enter into contracts between two Green couples for legal & medical reasons. Companies were beginning to slowly offer benefits to same color partners.

No - it was equal rights, equal colors that they demanded.
They equated their cause with the Black color cause of the 1960's. But this is reaching a bit - Black was slave to White, Black had basic color dignity denied them. The Green cause does injustice to the Black cause by latching on to its' mantra. But - hey - it gets attention.

Green uses the intimidating phrase 'greeno-phobic' if you dare to dislike their lifestyle or disagree with them. "Green-Bashing' is another word used with the same gusto.

The Greens introduce homo-greenialty into class rooms to indoctrinate small children into acceptance of their life style. Nationally, the Greens use the courts as a means of thwarting the will of the people, knowing that one or two sympathetic & rogue judges can decide to overrule that will.

But what Green really wants - above & beyond the claims of inequality or benefits - is simple - Validation. A marriage license gives them validation for their life style, validation that they are on the same moral level as hetero-colors. But they are not.

Not being able to get married has them green with envy.

It's All Bush's Fault, Damn Him!!!!!

The irrational George W. Bush haters are having a field day blaming George Bush for a so-called immoral war on Iraq (wrong), a depression-like economy (wrong again), prior knowledge of the 911 attacks (rolls eyes), the cause of death of untold millions (huh?), the starving of untold numbers of children, the plight of the elderly who have no health care & must enroll under a dog's name to at least get vet care, & the shame of the USA in the eyes of the civilized world.

I think a really good Bush hater could do better. It was goddamn hot & humid around here today - Bush's fault! The Lakers lost in the NBA finals?! OMG - Bush's fault. Those who failed to graduate this June? - Bush's fault. My cable went out for 35 seconds - Bush's fault. And my girlfriend tells me she thinks she's pregnant - by gum, that's gotta be Bush's fault; who else's could it be, huh?

Well, let's extrapolate a tad here & find out who is really at fault for all these evils. George Senior saw fit to get Barbara pregnant, so it was his fault! No, not really. If it wasn't for Grandpa Bush there would be no little Bushies, so let's blame him. No - that doesn't work. We have all these great-great-great Bushes to deal with also.

Bring history in to it & we can really spread the blame. If the South had won the Civil War, there would undoubtedly be no Bushes. But England failed to support the South fully. Hmm - methinks the English are a lot to blame. But wait again. The Spanish screwed up the Armada, otherwise we would be speaking Spanish right now & there are no Spanish Bushes that I know of.

If Rome did not fall, we'd still be on the Italian peninsula. Those filthy Romans caused all our troubles(biting knuckle)! Ah - but the Greeks - too busy putzing in Troy to keep up their civilization (never liked Greek food anyway).

But where did the Greeks come from? From the people of the Middle East, specifically the Garden of Eden. Damn bitch Eve - couldn't leave well enough alone. Had to get evicted over a lousy apple - and this is what we get for it - Bush!!

But they didn't HAVE to get kicked out of that oasis of debauchery. I mean someone, or some thing coulda said, "Naw, you can stay." Then we'd all still be in the Garden. With 6 billion folks around I grant ya it would be a tad crowded, but well worth the lack of elbow room, if it precluded that fanatic Bush being in the White House which he stole from the Good Prince Gore.

So, who do we have left to blame, hmmm? Hmmm?? It's not George W. who got my girl friend in a family way, nor George W. who is to blame for the evils that the Bush haters bestow upon him.

It's the Man in the sky! The Great One. It's God's fault!!! And thank God for President George W. Bush!

Toasters are Apolitical

Rich Kmiec got a brand new shiny toaster. It cost him $40. The man loves his toast, so only the best toaster for him. The thing does everything. Well, not everything. He has his wife for the things the toaster doesn't do. But other than that, his new shiny toaster is just as good as a wife.

After all; it feeds him, it keeps him warm if he snuggles next to it, & in time it will get old & ornery. A perfect second wife for him.

Toasters are apolitical & non-judgmental, unlike some wives. Toasters welcome with open arms white bread, black bread, marbled bread, conservative bread, liberal bread, religious bread, atheist bread, even gay bread.

Toasters don't care if you are rich or poor, a thief or a priest. Toasters are there for you whenever you knead them. They give you the sensual pleasures of toasted bread aroma wafting through the home, creating a more mellow atmosphere in those who sniff its fragrance. Toasting tells you that all is right with the world. Is there an elixir or illicit drug that can make such a claim? I don't think so.

Perhaps toasters should be placed in the offices of all Heads of State. Toasters quietly toasting in the background while a Summit or UN meeting is going on. Large fans spreading the addictive aroma of toast throughout the meetings. Maybe then we would have peace at last. And even if that failed we would still have a piece of toast to fall back on.

The Radical Left & Their Fascist Agenda for America

This upcoming election is more than just about George Bush & John Kerry. It is of a greater depth & nature. Conservatives & Liberals are pitted against each other for the hearts & minds of American society & culture. It has been an on going battle for years.

True Liberalism in the classical sense has been hijacked by the Radical Left, which in turn has hijacked the Democratic Party. The Radical Left has become home & umbrella to the many groups of extremists, crazies & zanies who are pushing their radical social agendas on to the American people.

True Liberals have acquiesced to the Radical Left or have joined with it for their own self-serving purposes & have by default become mouthpieces of the Radical Left.

The Radical Left will settle for nothing less than realization of its radical ideology. The Radical Left, unchecked & unfettered & with enough power, can easily slide in to Fascism or Big Brotherism. They ‘know’ what is best for the common man & they will lead, drag or imprison those who resist their agenda.

The Radical Left uses Orwellian Newspeak to dignify, modify or normalize words to further their radical agenda. Homosexual becomes Gay. Illegal Alien becomes Undocumented Worker. Abortion becomes Pro-Choice. Overweight becomes Calorie Challenged. Short people become Gravitationally Challenged. And on and on.

The Radical Left preaches tolerance of all, yet they are the intolerant thugs when one dares to disagree or ‘misspeaks’. The Radical Left in the ‘60s sung for, nay, demanded Free Speech, yet shouted down those with an opposing viewpoint, or occupied a campus building to protest a Conservative speaker scheduled to lecture. And it continues.

The Radical Left now uses different tactics to fight ‘intolerance’ – shouting ‘racist’, ‘bigot’, ‘homophobe’ & on & on against those who oppose their viewpoints or who dares to challenge them. They use these buzz words to intimidate & cajole into submission their ‘errant’ brethren.

The Radical Left has utter disdain & contempt for religion, especially right wing religion. Their ‘god’ is the secular, humanist model, which is devoid of any spirituality. They fight the religious with mockery, sneers & court orders. They give lip service to religious freedom while at the same time trying to suppress it.

The Radical Left cares more about the ‘art’ of a crucifix in urine then it does about the sensitivities of Christians to the filthy defecation of their beliefs.

The Radical Left seeks to blur the gender lines, demanding that the deviance of homosexuality & its permutations be accepted as normal & equal to heterosexuality, not caring that 95% of Americans are heterosexual. They latch on to the great civil rights movement of the ‘60s, equating themselves with the discrimination & abuse of Blacks, not caring that they insult & demean Blacks by putting themselves on a par with that great cause.

The Radical Left inserts its homosexual agenda in to the schools, infesting them. They put first grade books like “Daddy’s Roommate” or “My Second Mommy” in to classrooms, as if children had the wherewithal to comprehend sexuality. But Hitler had it right. Plant the seeds of your beliefs in to the children & they will grow in to the fruits of adult acceptance of homosexuality.

The Radical Left waves the banner of a “women’s’ right to choose” in abortion, although the unspoken truth is that most if not all pro-choice women choose abortions. They redefine a fetus as protoplasm in an effort to dehumanize a human. They can’t or won’t define when life or sentience begins because to do so would put a restriction on their ‘choice’, so late term abortions can thus be rationalized.

The Radical Left uses buzzwords such as “health of the mother”& “unwanted babies” as a means to justify abortions when in reality most abortions are for convenience & an escape from personal responsibility. Even the grotesque procedure of partial birth abortion gives them no pause. They have their ‘studies’ & ‘research’ to back up their claims that these procedures cause no pain to the ‘thing’ & that “well, it’s not really a person until actual full birth.”

The Radical Left wants children to get abortions without parental notification. But those same children cannot be given aspirin or treatment without it. It’s not the children the Radical Left is concerned about – it’s about further restriction on their abortion agenda.

The Radical Left never met a tree it didn’t like. It pushes its extreme environmental agenda to the detriment of mankind. Global warning is embraced & declared the only model, despite models to the contrary. Honest debate is a non-issue with them & will not be tolerated.

The Radical Left cannot see the value of humans over plant or animal life. All is equal.
PETA advocates commit crimes for the ‘liberation’ of animals, trespassing mink farms & freeing the minks & ironically killing them because the minks cannot survive beyond the farms. They would stop all testing of research animals, though those tests may lead to cures.

The Radical Left environmentalists put spikes in to logging trees to ‘save’ them, but have no concern about the logger who may be injured when unknowingly cutting those trees. They assault those wearing furs, throwing paint on the coats. Through the EPA they stop development & construction projects because an obscure bug or weed is ‘threatened’. The farmer or property owner is restricted in use of his or her property because an incidental stream flows through & thus is declared a ‘protected wetlands’.

The Radical Left is for legalized marijuana, but cigarette smokers are criminals. New York City forbids ashtrays in businesses. The ashtray police can enter any business, any private office without a search warrant & heavily fine those found with them. Yet search warrants are required for even murder suspects or potheads.

The Radical Left & their fascist agenda will continue in a later post.

L.A. County Board of Stupidvisors Cave in to Nazi ACLU

The Los Angles County Board of Supervisors has voted to remove a tiny cross from it's official seal, under threat of a lawsuit from the despicable & notoriously fascist ACLU.

The will of the people of California has been negated by a bunch of cowards & politically correct buffoons on the County Board. Rather than have the guts to fight the Nazi ACLU in court, the Board acquiesced to the fascists' demands.

This tiny, tiny cross on the seal reflects the heritage of California - the old Spanish Missionaries in the early days before California became a state. But the Nazi ACLU will have none of that. They have no sense or sensibility when it comes to the Judeo-Christian heritage of the nation. The Nazi ACLU will not stand for anything that even hints of a religious heritage. This tiny cross is surely no threat to the separation of church-state doctrine.

The Nazi ACLU is secularism to the extreme. They are not only secular, but anti-Christian. They go out of their way to find the slightest hint of a Christian symbol in government. When they find it they strong arm that community with threats of lawsuits, which would eat up precious public money to defend the lawsuit. The Nazi ACLU is well funded & uses this as intimidation.

The expense alone in changing the County Seal could be better spent on real humanitarian needs. It's not just one seal that changes. Every bit of county stationary, ever county truck & car, every county office, every law enforcement patch, every piece of county property that has the seal on it must be changed. When it comes to putting money to these things or to feeding the poor - well the ACLU has its priorities. Let them eat dog food - at least that nasty symbol of Christianity had been removed.

The shame is really on the cowards & politically correct fanatics in government who cave in to the Nazi ACLU, rather than fighting them. And the average citizen needs to get involved to stop this onslaught by fascists. The People need to start raising their voices. In many there is strength.

Otherwise we will slowly, but surely lose the religious heritage of this country - and we will have the Nazi Germany that the fascist ACLU is wittingly or unwittingly dragging us to. And if that happens, ironically, the vaunted "champions of freedom", the fascist ACLU, will be the first to go to the camps.

Ronald Wilson Reagan - American Icon, American Hero

A sad day it is upon learning of the death of our 40th President. Much more elegant words will flood the media than I can dare to write. Suffice it to say that he & I share the same values, the same beliefs in America, the same hopes for a better country & a better world.

Ronald Reagan brought to the White House a sense of hope when we as a people were floundering in high interest rates, high inflation rates, high unemployment, & a festering despair that the Cold War was being lost.

He had strong core beliefs, strong convictions, & he acted upon them to better the country & the world, despite the villification & smarmy jokes from those who opposed him.

And he was good to his word - inflation down dramatically, interest rates down dramatically, the promised tax cuts. But it was his unflinching belief that we could & would win the Cold War that will be his most profound & enduring legacy.

And above all else - his humor, his belief in the inherent goodness of people, his belief in his God - the man had character. And more so, he had class.

He & I share the same birthday, February 6, & so my affinity toward him is even that more personal.

RIP Mr. President.
