2020 Democrats Get Gimmicky with Holograms in Wacky Bid for Presidency

With a massive field of democrats already lining up for the 2020 presidential elections, everyone is looking for a way to stand out.

Politics, like any other cultural game, is filled with off-the-wall tactics and silly stunts.  It’s all about attention; who can get it, who can keep it, and who can avoid the unfortunate turns of fate out on the campaign trail.

For instance, Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders have recently received plenty of attention, but not for the reasons they’d prefer.

Candidate Andrew Yang has another idea for garnering press, however, and it is downright gimmicky.

Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang revealed this week that he’s planning to use a 3D hologram to hold campaign rallies in multiple cities at the same time. Yang discussed the hologram during an appearance on TMZ Live. The segment showed off a hologram version of Yang dancing and performing with the famous Tupac hologram that appeared at Coachella in 2012.

And just how will it work?

Yang plans to use the hologram, broadcast from the back of a truck, to deliver a recorded version of his stump speech to crowds in battleground states. Yang would set up in a studio and remotely beam into the rally to answer questions live and in real-time after the speech finished. The technique could save Yang, a longshot for the Democratic nomination at this point, a considerable amount of travel costs while helping to rally supporters and generate interest in key areas.

Is this just another democratic stunt, or a novel new approach to bringing young people into the political realm?

I suppose we’ll know by next November.

Biden Approval Tanks Again as Heavy Legislative Week Gets Underway

The President is in a bad spot, and there doesn’t appear to be much light at the end of the tunnel.

Joe Biden is going to have to start performing, and fast, if there’s any hope left for the Democratic Party.

The President’s first 8 months in office haven’t just been lackluster, they’ve been embarrassing.  Crises are piling up, solutions are in short supply, and many Americans are under the impression that there isn’t enough actual work being done in the White House to actually improve the nation at all.

And, unsurprisingly, this is being reflected heavily in Biden’s polling numbers.

President Biden’s approval rating among Americans stands in negative territory at 43%, a drop of six points in just one month, according to a new Gallup poll.

The survey, which was released on Wednesday, indicates that the deterioration in the president’s numbers is being fueled by a plunge in approval among independents. And Biden’s approval is lower at this point in his presidency than any of his most recent predecessors, except for then-President Trump.

Biden stands at 43% approval and 53% disapproval in the poll, which was conducted Sept. 1-17. That’s down from a 49%-48% approval/disapproval rating in Gallup’s Aug. 2-17 survey. The president stood at 56%-42% in Gallup’s June poll.

The news comes just just days ahead of a huge week for the President, in which his agenda will be fully tested in the halls of Congress.

Not only will the Democrats attempt to push through a controversial and expensive infrastructure bill, but also their reconciliation plan – something that has been highly divisive on the left side of the aisle alone.

Sidney Powell Says Capitol Riot Part of Plan to Have Justice Alito Intervene in Election

Powell claims that Nancy Pelosi caught wind of the plan, and then rushed to reconvene Congress.

Published

As we dig ever deeper into the story behind January 6th, (and the 2020 election overall), we tend to find ourselves with more questions than answers.

For example, earlier this week it was discovered that at least one person who stormed the Capitol that day was working with the FBI, relaying information back to the Bureau in real time – a direct contradiction of a mainstream talking point regarding the insurrection.

Now, in a stunning revelation, attorney Sidney Powell is claiming that the Capitol riot was planned as a way to stall the certification of the electoral college vote, in hopes of Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito possibly filing an injunction that would keep Biden out of office.

Powell made the remarks on Friday’s episode of The Stew Peters Show. The comments were shared on Twitter by Ron Filipkowski.

According to Filipkowski, Powell’s interview “suggests that the purpose of the insurrection was to DELAY the electoral college certification to give [Justice Samuel Alito] time to intervene on this legal challenge. But, Powell says they didn’t anticipate Pelosi reconvening Congress that day.”

Powell said […] her team was filing a “12th Amendment constitutional challenge to the process the Congress was about to use.”

“Justice Alito was our circuit justice for that,” she recalled. “And we were suing the vice president to follow the 12th Amendment as opposed to the Electoral College Act.”

Powell claims that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi became aware of the plan and promptly reconvened Congress in order to curtail these efforts.

“Everything broke loose and she really had to speed up reconvening Congress to get the vote going before Justice Alito might have issued an injunction to stop it all, which is what should have happened,” the attorney said.

Powell has been a key player in the “stop the steal” movement over the last several months, and has been sued for defamation by Dominion Voting Systems over her efforts.
