Excuse Me, There Is A Time Traveler Running For President And I Need To Know More Please
If there is anything I pride myself on, it is knowing way too much about almost every kind of weird shit there is to know about. Thus, imagine my shock when, while in an internet hole earlier this week, I discovered the existence of a man named Andrew Basiago who claims to be a time traveler and who is also supposed to be running for president in 2020. As it turns out, I am totally late on this, he has been a thing for YEARS and he also ran for president in 2016. Someone should have told me. I should have known. I could have been obsessed with him for at least three years by now, and it's just not fair.
Apparently Basiago, because of all the time traveling he has done, knows for a fact that he will be President of the United States of America sometime between 2016 and 2028. He is not sure of the specific year for some reason, but he knows it will happen. Now that 2016 is off the table, he's now shooting for 2020.
He does have a campaign site domain name set up, but sadly, it is not currently in operation and I can't see it.
He does, however, have another website, upon which he explains all about how the CIA recruited him as a child to do time travel for the defense of our nation:
In the late 1960's and early 1970's, Andy was a child participant in Project Pegasus, which was the US time-space exploration program at the time of the emergence of time travel in the US defense-technical community.
He was called back into government service in the early 1980's, when he made numerous visits to Mars after being tapped to join the CIA's Mars "jump room" program.
For over a decade, Andy has investigated his secret project experiences on a quest to prove them and communicate them to others.
Soon, he will publish a tell-all book that will reveal the true story of his awe-inspiring and terrifying experiences time traveling for the US government.
Andrew D. Basiago was born on September 18, 1961 in Morristown, New Jersey, the youngest of five children, and grew up in Northern New Jersey and Southern California.
Andy was identified in early childhood as an "Indigo" child with special abilities, including the ability to use his mind to levitate small objects and to perform telepathy by reading the minds of others.
An indigo child! I love it!
Here he is explaining more of that on some Australian TV show a few weeks ago:

If President, Basiago will promote a program requiring everyone in the United States to eat at least one egg a day.
And will also do everything in his power to protect the noble sasquatch.
He also supports a $15 minimum wage, which is good!
Now, I am all in for Elizabeth Warren now, but I could be convinced! I'm just gonna need this time traveler guy to get his website together and also do an interview with me, to be published here on Wonkette.
Anyway, I am off to watch one of Andy's three hour videos about all the time travel he has done, and you are now welcome to talk about whatever in the comments, because this is now your open thread!
