American Values on the Ground: The Inside Scoop on Ongoing Projects of the Super PAC
By Leah Watson, The Kennedy Beacon
On November 16, the American Values team was abuzz with the recent endorsements from Olympic champion and NBA Hall of Famer John Stockton, Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame member Ken Ruettgers, and NFL quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Kyle Warner, manager of the Sports Outreach team at American Values 24 and a professional mountain biking champion, is also an endorser of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and has been working tirelessly to obtain endorsements from other athletes. These three athletes praise Kennedy’s vision and believe he can unify the American people. Warner is planning interviews to expand on the endorsements and is also exploring endorsements in other industries such as music. A recent endorsement has been secured from a former Pussy Cat Doll, Jessica Sutta.
“Once people do the endorsement, it really builds a sense of ownership, and they keep wanting to do more,” said Warner in an American Values team meeting.
Beyond the announcement of their endorsements, the two athletes are very excited to speak more about their support for Kennedy. The hunt for more athletic endorsements is underway with more announcements coming soon.
Alejandra Chaparro and Justin Faust led the event Connecting the Dots to Support RFK Jr. in New York City on November 14th. The event was held in support of Hispanic and African-American communities that are uniting to support Kennedy’s candidacy. Chaparro reflected on the event at an American Values team meeting and said that a highlight of the event was “the discussion and the environment and how [everyone was] able to express themselves and learn more about Bobby.”
About 60 people were in attendance, as well as a variety of mainstream media sources including Politico, CBS, ABC, and Telemundo, who covered the event. People out of the area were also able to attend the event through Zoom. The event had many guest speakers including Kevin D. Jenkins, CEO of Urban Global Health Alliance. Overall, the event was very successful as people were able to share their thoughts on why Kennedy is the best candidate for them.
Thanks to the event, Chaparro said “we were able to have more endorsements and surrogates… and we were able to create a network of persons living in other states like Nevada, New Jersey, Florida, Massachusetts, and Michigan who are willing to keep growing and connecting and learn more about Bobby.”
On November 10th and 11th, a Caravan event occurred in Tallahassee, Florida at the Florida State University vs. Miami football game and tailgate party. Ross Elakman, a member of AV24, drove loops around the stadium with a trailer promoting Kennedy for more exposure until the game started. Elakman distributed merchandise and an estimated 10,000 people interacted with the caravan.
In Substack activity at the Super PAC, the Honest Democrats continues to publish articles. The Substack began when Mark Gorton, founder of Honest Democrats, brought a group of people together who were critical of lies and corruption in the democratic party and wanted to expand their dissent.
“In NYC, if you’re not a registered Democrat, essentially you’re disenfranchised because the elections are chosen in the primary and whoever wins the democratic primary, wins 80% of the elections, because NY is so staunchly democratic,” said Michael Kane, another member of Honest Democrats. Gorton and Kane refuse to hand the Democratic party over to people who are pro-Big Pharma, pro-Censorship, or pro-Big Tech.
“Those have nothing to do with traditional Democratic values,” said Michael Kane, who jumped on board once Gorton pitched the idea to him. “A number of us are registered Democrats or formerly registered Democrats,” said Kane, whose mission is to reform the Democratic party so that it will once again reflect the interests of the American people instead of large corporations.
One of the top-read articles on the Honest Democrats Substack is titled “Biden's Future is Looking Very Grim,” and showcases how Kennedy is taking over 22% of the vote and is dominating voters under the age of 45. The majority of articles on the Substack highlight corruption in the media, the loss of faith in Joe Biden, and greater accountability for Democrats.
Last but not least, the Kennedy Beacon Podcast. The podcast is dedicated to listeners interested in the Kennedy campaign, providing honest discussions between the hosts and their knowledgeable guests. On November 19th, the podcast released its sixth episode, exploring Kennedy’s latest polling numbers with special guest Jeremy Zogby. Zogby is the Managing Partner of John Zogby Strategies and works with the Kennedy Beacon in analyzing Kennedy’s polling numbers. The podcast has also featured an interview with Dick Russell, the author of The Real RFK Jr: Trials of a Truth Warrior. In this episode, Russell spoke about Kennedy’s environmental battles against ExxonMobil and Monsanto, as well as his efforts in cleaning up the Hudson River. The podcast also highlights Kennedy’s vulnerabilities, his past struggles with addiction, and how he uses these experiences to help others dealing with similar issues.
“This is not a put-on persona, this is who he really is,” said Frances Scott in the “Why Kennedy?” episode of the Kennedy Beacon Podcast. Kennedy presents himself in an authentic way, and the takeaway is one of a person who truly cares about people, is honest, and wants to heal the divide in America.
The podcast also features special guests who are members of AV24, including Louis Conte, David Talbot, and Debra Sheldon, who touch on the topics of health and medical freedom, Kennedy’s lack of security and protection, and why the country needs Kennedy. The hosts of this series are Kennedy Beacon staff members Aaron Good, Frances Scott, and Niko House.
On November 22nd, the Kennedy Beacon Podcast released an hour-long episode on the 60th anniversary of the JFK assassination. The episode contained a lively discussion about the murder and its lingering effects. The special guests in this episode include Dick Russel, David Talbot, Jessie Ventura, and John Kirby discussing the cover-up and secrecy surrounding the JFK assassination as well as unreleased government documents holding the answers to the murder.
The hosts of the Kennedy Beacon Podcast are “united by [a] desire to fundamentally reform this country and to turn it away from [its] grim path,” said Aaron Good. Good hopes that “as Kennedy gets his bearings, the campaign will become a bigger and bigger source of hope… [hope that] we will have an American head of state who would look to reform the system and fix what's broken rather than risking everything.”
