Voters Treated to Pizza in Long Polling Lines Thanks to Non-Profit

These folks are the real heroes on election day.

There are plenty of gimmicks out there that are being employed in order to get people to the polls for the 2018 midterm elections.

As per usual, Hollywood has been out in full force, lending the weight of the cult of celebrity to the cause.

In a first-of-its-kind event, more than 50 actors, comedians and YouTube stars will join a two-hour, live-streamed telethon on Monday night aimed at firing up younger voters, the age group least likely to cast a ballot.

Stars will not ask for money during the “Telethon for America.” Instead, they will urge viewers to call in to a celebrity phone bank and pledge to vote the next day.

Comedian Chelsea Handler, who left her Netflix talk show a year ago to focus on activism, said she believes young people expect “older, more responsible adults” will act to solve problems through government.

For something a bit more practical, however, we turn to “Pizza To The Polls”.

A nonprofit  called “Pizza to the Polls” is delivering pies to voters across the nation this midterm election.  It’s soliciting images of crowded voting locations through social media to determine where the reinforcements are needed.

The group said on Saturday, the last before Election Day,  it sent 119 pies to 15 polling places in North Carolina, Florida, Missouri, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana and California .

“I’ve been here for 2 1/2 hours and was sooo hungry!” one Twitter user posted from Culver City. “Thanks for saving the day @PizzaToThePolls.”

Another user tweeted, “Shout out to the #voter waiting in line for Weekend #EarlyVoting at West LA College who decided to feed the other voters in line with her using @PizzaToThePolls. Pretty festive #voting atmosphere here.”

Remember folks, it is your duty as an American to vote in this, and all, elections…no matter what.  It is the most basic and necessary right in this country, and we cannot let it go to waste.

And, if there’s even the slightest chance of free pizza, you know I’m going to be there.

Stephanie Grisham Makes Wild Claims About ‘Secret Meetings’ Ahead of Jan. 6th

The clear-headed among us will recognize this nothing-burger for what it is, however.

Published

on

Not everything is a spy novel, or a Hollywood blockbuster.  Not every little political machination in our nation is some sort of clandestine and seismic event.  This is something that we all must remember during the hyperbole-laden headline-mongering that the January 6th committee is looking to drum up.

The group’s very existence appears to be hinged on the idea that Donald Trump is a wannabe dictator of some sort who tried to take over America 12 months and 2 weeks ago.  They appear ready to figuratively die on this hill, and they have no qualms with taking the absence of knowledge and fashioning it into something sinister – much like the conspiracy theorists that they love to deride so much.

For instance, there are now headlines swirling around the mainstream media that tell of “secret meetings” that Trump was having just ahead of the attack on the Capitol – the subject and substance of which is undeniably unknown.

Yet still, these are presented as insidious incidents that somehow prove something that they’ve been looking to prove for a long time…despite our complete lack of knowledge regarding the actual facts of the matter.

Former White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham told the House committee investigating the Capitol riot that former President Donald Trump had secret meetings in his residence in the days running up to January 6, The Guardian reported.

Two sources told The Guardian that she told the committee that Trump held the meetings, and that only a few of his aides were aware of them.

She said she was not sure exactly who attended but identified Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, and the White House chief usher Timothy Harleth, as two people who scheduled and directed participants to the meetings, The Guardian reported.

The infotainment industry’s sources claim that Grisham’s testimony was “more significant” than expected, but there is nothing unusual about the sitting US President having meetings in which not every single solitary person in the White House is included.

Nonetheless, Grisham’s nothing-burger continues to gain traction in the media.

In Marathon Presser, Biden Offers Grim Assessment of Russia-Ukraine Situation

And he was harshly rebuked by Ukraine in the process.

Published

on

On Wednesday, US President Joe Biden set out to prove to the nation that he is not the “Sleepy Joe” that Donald Trump so ruthlessly mocked on the campaign trail, enduring a nearly two-hour press conference that appeared, for all intents and purposes, to be a simple PR stunt.

Biden’s answers to the press’s questions were a bit off at times, with even CNN running articles on Thursday detailing the numerous factual errors that he made.

But, on the subject of Ukraine, the Commander in Chief had a bleak warning.

President Joe Biden said Wednesday he thinks Russia will invade Ukraine and warned President Vladimir Putin that his country would pay a “dear price” in lives lost and a possible cutoff from the global banking system if it does.

Biden, speaking at a news conference to mark his one-year anniversary in office, also said a “minor incursion” by Russia would elicit a lesser response. He later sought to clarify that he was referring to a non-military action, such as a cyberattack, that would be met with a similar reciprocal response, and that if Russian forces cross the Ukrainian border, killing Ukrainian fighters, “that changes everything.”

But the comments also hinted at the challenge of keeping the United States and its NATO allies united in their response to Russia. In explaining the minor incursion remark, he said “it’s very important that we keep everyone in NATO on the same page.”

The statement was almost immediately lambasted by Ukrainian officials, who reminded the President that there is “no such thing as a minor incursion”.
