Kanye West calls out liberals for ‘one of the most racist things’: ‘Institutionalized racism’

Rapper Kanye West is calling out liberals for what he says is “one of the most racist things.”

What did West say?

Speaking with Joe Rogan on his podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience,” West said the attitude Democrats hold toward the black community — assuming they have the black vote in the bag or only catering to the black community when they need their vote — “is one of the most racist things.”

According to West, Democrats often subtly communicate they think that black voters cannot think for themselves.

“One of the most racist things that liberals who pride themselves on not being racist have said to me is, like, ‘You’re going to split the black vote.’ And that makes it seem like black people can’t make decisions for ourselves,” West told Rogan.

“Liberals literally make it seem like only black people will vote for me. Think about that statement! The nuance of institutionalized racism,” West added.

“They just have a place where no one has really been able to embrace the idea of blacks not being in a bloc and staying in one place,” he continued.

Earlier in the podcast, West said that “liberal elites” have accused him of being a “pawn” for the Republican Party.

But according to West, turning black people into “pawns” is a tactic employed by liberals.

“Democrats do create black pawns, they do have celebrities that they’ll sit down and meet with and say, you’re going to be an advocate for the Democratic Party,” West explained.

West’s comments begin around the 1:48:10 mark:

Any recent examples?

Unfortunately, there have been two recent prominent examples demonstrating what West told Rogan.

Earlier this summer, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden incited controversy after telling hip-hop radio host Charlamagne Tha God that black people aren’t really black if they don’t vote for him, a Democrat.

“Well, I’ll tell you what: If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden said.

Then, just last week, liberal comedian Chelsea Handler scolded rapper 50 Cent, whom she once dated, for seemingly supporting President Donald Trump over the fact that Biden’s tax plan would raise taxes on wealthy Americans like 50 Cent, whose real name is Curtis Jackson.

I had to remind him that he was a black person, so he can’t vote for Donald Trump and that he shouldn’t be influencing an entire swath of people who may listen to him because he’s worried about his own personal pocketbook,” Handler told Jimmy Fallon.

Jackson has since appeared to recant his support for Trump.

Early voting Intelwars Jennifer Aniston Joe Biden kanye west

Jennifer Aniston says ‘it’s not funny to vote for Kanye’ West

Actress Jennifer Aniston told her social media followers Friday that “it’s not funny” to cast their vote for long-shot presidential candidate Kanye West on Election Day, urging them to “please be responsible.”

What are the details?

Aniston wrote a lengthy Instagram post declaring that she voted for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden and his running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.), saying, “I voted for them because right now this country is more divided than ever. Right now, a few men in power are deciding what women can and can’t do with their own bodies.”

She continued, “Our current President has decided that racism is a non-issue. He has repeatedly and publicly ignored science…too many people have died.”

The “Friends” star went on to argue that “this whole thing isn’t about one candidate or one single issue, it’s about the future of this country and of the world. Vote for human rights, for love, and for decency.”

But in closing her post, she took a parting shot at West, who is running a long-shot, largely write-in campaign under the banner of the Birthday Party while insisting that he is a serious candidate.

“PS – It’s not funny to vote for Kanye,” Aniston wrote, adding, “I don’t know how else to say it. Please be responsible.”

Billboard reported:

West is on the ballot in 12 states, including Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah and Vermont. West made it clear that he is not AIP candidate Rocky LaFuente’s vice presidential running mate, as some California sample ballots indicated, and that his name appeared “without my knowledge.”

Ad campaign Intelwars kanye west presidential Write In

Watch: Kanye West releases presidential campaign ad emphasizing faith, family — asks Americans to write in his name

Rapper Kanye West has dropped his first campaign ad mere weeks ahead of Election Day, wherein he places an emphasis on faith and family before asking his fellow Americans to write in his name at the ballot box.

What are the details?

“What is America’s destiny? What is best for our nation, our people? What is just? True justice,” West begins in his ad. “We have to think about all these things together as a people. To contemplate our future, to live up to our dream, we must have vision.

“We as a people will revive our nation’s commitment to faith, to what our Constitution calls the free exercise of religion, including, of course, prayer,” the billionaire musician and fashion mogul continues. “Through prayer, faith can be restored. We as a people are called to a greater purpose than ourselves.”

Rallying Americans to come together, West says, “We are not only a beacon to the world, but we should be servants to each other. To encourage each other, to help each other, to lift up each other — our fellow Americans, that we may prosper together.”

He adds, “We have to act on faith, with the sure knowledge that we are pursuing the right goals and doing the right things. We will build a stronger country by building stronger families. Families are the building blocks of society, of a nation. By turning to faith, we will be the kind of nation, the kind of people, God intends us to be.”

The ad concludes with a call for Americans to vote for the 43-year-old West, and to write in his name.

Anything else?

The Hill reported that the rapper is running under the beacon of the Birthday party, and “has failed to make the ballot in most states and has polled in the low single digits when included in surveys.”

West, whose running mate is “Biblical life coach” Michelle Tidball, 57, in the long-shot White House bid, does not mention any of his opponents in the ad.

West has expressed his support for incumbent President Donald Trump in the past, and told Forbes over the summer, “Trump is the closest president we’ve had in years to allowing God to still be a part of the conversation.”

The outlet reported that West “expressed comfort with the idea of doing damage to [Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s] White House chances.”

2020 Election Intelwars kanye west Lane ruhland Wisconsin

Kanye West misses ballot in Wisconsin because his lawyer was a couple minutes late submitting signatures

Kanye West will not be on the ballot for November’s presidential election in the state of Wisconsin, after his election lawyer got the required signatures in just a couple of minutes too late, Politico reported.

In the latest consequence of his campaign’s disorganization, the state election commission ruled against accepting West’s signatures that were turned in one or two minutes after the 5 p.m. Aug. 4 deadline.

“When you’re late, you’re late,” said Commissioner Julie Glancey, according to Politico. “We’ve knocked people off the ballot for being one signature short. If we are holding their feet to the fire on the number of signatures, we need to hold their feet to the fire on the time they file.”

West’s election lawyer is Lane Ruhland. Ruhland has represented President Donald Trump’s campaign and served as general counsel for the Wisconsin GOP. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Ruhland met a state elections agency employee named Cody Davies at the door of the building between 12 and 14 seconds after 5 p.m.

Davies said he told Ruhland she was late and said he would consult with a supervisor about how to go forward. Riley Williams, another staff member, said they entered the elections commission office at 5:01 p.m. and then had to organize their paperwork, which took a few more minutes.

West’s legal team tried to argue that the signatures were turned in before 5:01 p.m., which means they technically met the 5 p.m. deadline. By a 5-1 margin, the commission rejected that argument.

Milwaukee Republican Robert Spindell was the only commissioner to argue that West should still be on the ballot, not necessarily because he believes West made the deadline, however.

“Mr. West is an African American candidate,” Spindell said, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “And I think we should do all we can to — after the terrible treatment that the black population in Milwaukee received during the April election — that we give them a choice.”

Spindell accused Democrats of attempting to suppress the black vote.

West has gotten much hype as a potential spoiler who can take votes, especially black votes, away from Democratic nominee Joe Biden in key states. But not only is West failing to get on the ballot in some key states, polling indicates that even if he did, he wouldn’t make much noise.

A Politico/Morning Consult poll showed West at 2% support among registered voters and 2% among black voters. Perhaps most importantly, West’s presence as a choice didn’t impact Biden’s margin over President Trump.

2020 Election Donald Trump Intelwars Jared Kushner Joe Biden kanye west Presidential Election

Kanye West meets with Jared Kushner amid indications GOP operatives are pushing his campaign to hurt Joe Biden

Kanye West, who is (kind of) running for president, reportedly met last weekend with White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, President Donald Trump’s son-in-law, The New York Times reported.

After NYT reported on the meeting, West tweeted confirmation that he met with Kushner and offered to talk more about it publicly.

“I’m willing to do a live interview with the New York Times about my meeting with Jared where we discussed Dr. Claude Anderson’s book Powernomics,” West wrote on Twitter.

The meeting reportedly took place in Colorado, where West and his family have were camping and where Jared and Ivanka Kushner were traveling at the time. West flew to Telluride to meet with the Kushners.

Why is this notable? West has a very public positive relationship with President Donald Trump, so under normal circumstances a meeting between West and Kushner might not draw much attention.

But, West is running for president, and there have been reports and indications that Republican operatives are supporting the independent campaign as a way to draw votes away from Democratic nominee Joe Biden. From ABC News:

At least six operatives who have been prominently involved in the Republican political world have been linked to Kanye West‘s captivating 11th-hour independent 2020 presidential bid.

As the rivalry between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden intensifies with less than three months to go until the election, the involvement of the operatives in West’s campaign, some of whom have ties to Trump’s camp, raises questions about the motives of those helping to put his name on the ballot.

West is running as an independent, but has said he would have run as a Republican if President Donald Trump wasn’t running for reelection. His campaign, from the limited amount of information that has come from it, is overtly against the Democratic Party and anti-abortion.

“To say that the Black vote is Democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy,” West said, according to ABC News.

Is this a real campaign? It seems to be a real campaign in some sense of the word, but it has not proven to be an effective or organized one. West has missed the deadlines to get on the ballot in numerous states, and in several states where he met the deadline, his paperwork and signatures were either incomplete or potentially fraudulent.

2020 presidential election Forbes Intelwars Interviews Joe Biden kanye west President Donald Trump

Kanye West indicates he’s running for president to sabotage Joe Biden, keep Trump in office: report

Rapper Kanye West has apparently indicated that his plan for the 2020 presidential election is to take away votes from presumptive Democratic nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden, according to Forbes.

Such a move would help President Donald Trump’s re-election bid for four more years in office.

What are the details?

In an exclusive interview with Forbes, the outspoken Christian rapper said he is “walking for president” rather than running.

Forbes’ Randall Lane writes, “Amid various reports that Republican and Trump-affiliated political operatives are trying to get Kanye West onto various state ballots for November’s presidential election, the billionaire rap superstar indicated, in an interview by text today, that he was in fact running to siphon votes from the presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden.”

Lane adds, “Asked about that directly, West said that … he was ‘walking … to win.'”

During the interview, Lane said he told West that he can’t actually win in the 2020 presidential election because there’s no way for him to get on enough ballots to yield 270 electoral votes — the amount to win.

West responded, “I’m not going to argue with you. Jesus is King.”

‘God production’

Elsewhere during the exchange, West — a previously vocal Trump supporter — reportedly “rebuffed various attempts to clarify who was driving his ballot access or strategy,” and whether he was working with Republicans on the effort.

“West did not respond when asked whether he feels he’s being used,” Lane writes. “When I pointed out to West that the slapdash operation to get him on the ballot, which includes one operative previously arrested for voter fraud and multiple West ‘electors’ from the same address, didn’t feel like a Kanye West production, West replied that it was a ‘God production.'”

“Trump is the closest president we’ve had in years to allowing God to still be a part of the conversation,” West added.

Lane concludes that West was “eager” to criticize Biden, and reportedly “expressed comfort with the idea of doing damage to the former vice president’s White House chances.”

West’s response?

“I’m not denying it. I just told you,” he said, Forbes reported.

Intelwars kanye west Michelle tidball presidential Running Mate Vice-President

Kanye West officially names his running mate as presidential campaign presses on

Music mogul and apparent 2020 presidential candidate Kanye West has listed his vice presidential pick, but the world is still waiting to hear from her on the matter.

What are the details?

TMZ reported Monday that West named Michelle Tidball as his running mate in his filing to get on the ballot in Arkansas. So far, however, Tidball has remained mum on the matter.

According to Forbes, Tidball describes herself as a “Biblical life coach” and lives in Cody, Wyoming, where West has owned a ranch since 2018. The outlet pointed to Tidball’s biography page, where she reportedly “touts ‘various degrees in mental health and criminal justice.'” The page did not load for TheBlaze on Monday.

Tidball describes her values as such on the Yarash website:

Through my diligence in the study of the word, living in boldness, love, integrity, and hard work, I am dedicated to learn more about God, others, and the world. I value learning, loyalty, optimism, peace, faith, wisdom, compassion, creativity and community. I am a loyal person who desires to ‘stick closer than a brother.’ My desire is to live in peace with God and man, to engage my faith daily over all circumstances with wisdom, compassion, and creativity at the helm. I continue to involve myself in community — local, state, and abroad.

The New Yorker reported that Tidball is “a fifty-seven-year-old white woman from Cody who runs an online Bible study, works in a dental office, and has so far said nothing public about the campaign.” A local retired attorney and former assistant to Richard Nixon, Wallace Johnson, told the magazine of Tidball, “She’s a wise pick: extremely articulate, likable, and capable. As far from Sarah Palin as I can imagine.”

Johnson added, “I never thought Kanye had a theology of his own, but maybe he’s developing one. I don’t want to call it a cult, but that’s what a new religion is. Michelle could help with that. She’s very persuasive.”

While Tidball has not issued a statement or made any public statements since being named West’s running mate, she has promoted him on Twitter, retweeting his declarations from July that he “CAN BEAT BIDEN OFF OF WRITE INS” and his call for South Carolina voters to sign up to get him on the ballot in the state.

Despite claims that West’s 2020 presidential aspirations are part of a bipolar episode, the billionaire rapper and fashion designer has pressed forward with his campaign, hiring canvassers to assist in getting his name on the ballot in several states for the Nov. 3 election.

2020 Election Intelwars kanye west Presidential Election Wisconsin

Kanye West is still running for president despite personal turmoil and missed ballot deadlines

Kanye West is apparently still running for president, evidenced by his campaign’s recent hiring of canvassers to help get him on the ballot in Wisconsin, New York Magazine reported.

In order to get on the Wisconsin ballot in November, West needs 2,000 valid signatures by 5 p.m. Tuesday. He has qualified for the ballot in Oklahoma, but missed the deadline in numerous other states. Right now, according to New York Magazine, West is working to get on the ballot in Ohio, Arkansas, and West Virginia as well.

West may get on the ballot in New Jersey and Illinois, but there are pending challenges questioning the legitimacy of his signatures in those states. Scott Salmon, an elections later, said about 700 of the 1,327 signatures West submitted in New Jersey are questionable.

“Why does literally every signature on the same page look the same?” Salmon asked, NY Mag reported.

In his home state of Illinois, West faces three separate challenges questioning whether his signatures are legitimate and also whether the paperwork he submitted is valid:

In Illinois, West’s campaign barely cleared the threshold of 2,500 signatures required after a frenzied last-minute effort in the state that included canvassers standing in a supermarket parking lot next to the state board of elections only hours before the deadline. His campaign faces three different challenges in the Land of Lincoln that raise questions not only about the validity of the signatures he gathered but whether the paperwork submitted by West was inherently insufficient. Among other issues, the rapper did not submit the name of a vice presidential running mate or a slate of electors in Illinois.

West’s potential inclusion on the ballot in Wisconsin is important, not because there’s a real chance that West could win the state, but because it was only decided by less than 23,000 votes in 2016. Before launching his own political campaign, West was closely aligned with President Donald Trump.

West has been particularly outspoken against abortion, attacking Planned Parenthood and highlighting the number of black babies that have been aborted in recent Twitter posts.

Kim Kardashian, West’s wife, has also been the subject of West’s Twitter rants. West seemed to suggest that Kardashian had cheated on him and that he was seeking a divorce, while Kardashian appealed to the public for understanding about her husband’s mental health issues.

Intelwars kanye west Kim Kardashian Mental Health Presidential Election Social Media

Kim Kardashian breaks silence on husband Kanye West’s ‘mental health’ in revealing statement — then immediately deletes it

Reality star Kim Kardashian issued a lengthy statement Wednesday about the mental health of her husband, rapper Kanye West.

West has been making headlines over the last several days following the release of several bombshell accusations against Kardashian and her family.

Kardashian apparently deleted the lengthy remarks less than an hour after issuing them on Twitter.

What are the details?

Kardashian reminded her 65 million Twitter followers of her husband’s bipolar disorder diagnosis.

West himself revealed the diagnosis during a 2019
discussion with David Letterman.

In a series of tweets, Kardashian
wrote, “As many of you know, Kanye has bipolar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand.

“I’ve never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye’s right to privacy when it comes to his health,” she
continued. “But today, I feel like I should comment on it because of the stigma and misconceptions about mental health.”

During a Sunday rally in Charleston, South Carolina, West revealed that the couple previously considered aborting their first child, North West. Reports alleged Kardashian and her family were horrified by West’s revelation, and West himself said that Kardashian attempted to involuntarily hospitalize the rapper.

On Twitter, Kardashian explained that she and her family have been “powerless” to help the rapper, suggesting he does not want to be helped at this point.

“Those that understand mental illness or even compulsive behavior know that the family is powerless unless the member is a minor,” the reality star
explained. “People who are unaware or far removed from this experience can be judgmental and not understand that the individual themselves have to engage in the process of getting help no matter how hard family and friends try.”

Kardashian continued, asking social media users for their understanding and reminding them of West’s dynamic personality and career.

“I understand Kanye is subject to criticism because he is a public figure and his actions at times can cause strong opinions and emotions,” she continued,

“He is a brilliant but complicated person who on top of the pressures of being an artist and a black man who experienced the painful loss of his mother, has to deal with the pressure and isolation that is heightened by his bipolar disorder,” she wrote.

Kardashian pointed out that West sometimes doesn’t mean a lot of the things he says due to his bipolar disorder diagnosis.

“Those who are close with Kanye know his heart and understand his words some times do not align with his intentions,” she
insisted. “Living with bipolar disorder does not diminish or invalidate his dreams and his creative ideas, no matter how big or unobtainable they may feel to some. That is part of his genius and as we have all witnessed, many of his big dreams have come true.”

Kardashian, instead, requested grace and understanding for West as she and her family try to navigate the media onslaught.

“We as a society talk about giving grace to the issue of mental health as a whole, however we should also give it to the individuals who are living with it in times when they need it the most,” she continued.

“I kindly ask that the media and public give us the compassion and empathy that is needed so that we can get through this. Thank you for those who have expressed concern for Kanye’s well being and for your understanding,” she
concluded. “With Love and Gratitude, Kim Kardashian West.”

Abortion Divorce Intelwars kanye west Kim Kardashian Kris jenner Social Media white supremacy

Kanye West accuses wife Kim Kardashian of white supremacy by attempting to hospitalize him

Rapper Kanye West went on another Twitter tirade Tuesday night, saying that his wife, Kim Kardashian, and her mother are engaging in white supremacy by speaking out against him.

On Monday night, West
told his Twitter followers that Kardashian was trying to involuntarily commit him after he claimed that the two considered aborting their first child, North West.

West made the tearful remarks during a campaign rally in Charleston, South Carolina, over the weekend.

What are the details?

West, clearly agitated, revealed, “Kris and Kim put out a statement without my approval…that’s not what a wife should do. White supremacy.”

Elsewhere during the rant, West said that his family is trying to hospitalize him, and insisted that he’s been trying to divorce Kardashian.

“They tried to fly in with 2 doctors to 51/50 me,” he
wrote. “I been trying to get divorced since Kim met with [rapper] Meek [Mill] at the Warldorf [sic] for prison reform.”

West has since deleted all of the tweets in question.

The news comes on the heels of reports that Kardashian was reportedly irate over West’s remarks during the presidential rally in South Carolina.

West announced his presidential bid on July 5. Though he missed the deadline to qualify for the ballot in several states, he was able to appear as a candidate on Oklahoma’s presidential ballot and hosted the Charleston rally on Sunday.

You can see the tweets below.

Anything else?

The New York Post cites a Kardashian source who said that the couple’s marriage could be in very serious trouble amid West’s latest behavior.

“I don’t know if they can survive it,” the source said, calling the situation “really bad.”

Despite West’s protests, the source added that the family “has such compassion for him right now,” and that “anger is not a motivation” in any help the family may be attempting to provide to West.

“The family is trying to work out what to do,” the source said, “and hoping that this nightmare will be over soon and they can get Kanye into treatment.”

Kanye West claims wife Kim Kardashian is trying to involuntarily commit him after abortion announcement

Rapper Kanye West says his wife, Kim Kardashian, is trying to involuntarily commit him to a mental health facility following his bombshell claim that the two considered aborting their first child, North West.

West made the abortion remarks during a Sunday presidential rally in Charleston, South Carolina.

West announced a presidential bid on July 5. Though he missed the deadline to qualify for the ballot in several states, he was able to appear as a candidate on Oklahoma’s presidential ballot.

What are the details?

On Monday night, West accused his wife of trying to “lock [him] up” in a series of concerning tweets — all of which have apparently been deleted.

“Kim tried to bring a doctor to lock me up with a doctor,” he wrote. “If I get locked up like [Nelson] Mandela… Ya’ll will know why.”

West later added, “Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughters life yesterday.”

He also fired a pointed tweet at Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, writing, “Kriss [sic] don’t play with me you and that calmye [sic] are not allowed around my children Ya’ll tried to lock me up.”

West deleted the tweets in question — screenshots of which you can read in the tweet below.

Instead, West dropped a photo about his forthcoming album, apparently titled “DONDA,” after his mother, who died in 2007.

“DONDA coming this Friday,” he captioned the photo.

Some of the tracks featured on the new, decidedly Christian-themed album include “Know God Breathed on This,” “Praise God,” “Keep My Spirit Alive,” and “New Body.”

He added, “Ima focus on the music now.”

What else?

On Monday night, TMZ reported on West’s tweets and the subsequent fallout.

“As we’ve reported,” the outlet wrote, “our Kanye sources say he’s in the middle of a serious mental health episode and those around him have urged him to get help … but the decision needs to be his.”

On Tuesday, the Daily Mail reported that Kardashian is pressuring West to drop his presidential bid.

The outlet reported, “Sources have since claimed that Kim was considering divorcing him if he didn’t drop his presidential bid and that she was ‘furious’ he had spoken about their seven-year-old daughter at his rally.”

The Sun also reported on Tuesday that Kardashian is furious over West’s behavior and allegedly “lost her s**t” over the remarks about the couple’s daughter.

A source reportedly told the outlet that “Kim has had it and she does not believe that he is well enough to be running for president.”

“He is an embarrassment to himself and to her family and Kim does not want this charade to go on any longer,” the source added.

A Kardashian source also reportedly told Entertainment Tonight that the family is concerned over how West’s remarks may impact the couple’s 7-year-old daughter when she gets older.

“Kanye isn’t in a good place and isn’t listening to anyone trying to talk him into getting help. Kim is upset with Kanye for his rants yesterday, especially talking about the possibility of having an abortion and not giving birth to North,” the source told Entertainment Tonight. “She knows this is something North will see when she gets older and that’s heartbreaking.”

Abortion Christianity God Intelwars kanye west Kim Kardashian North west Parenting Pro-Life Videos

Kanye West sobs, ‘I almost killed my daughter’ with abortion, says God stopped him. His family is ‘seriously concerned’ for his mental health now.

The family of rapper and supposed presidential candidate Kanye West, according to TMZ, is “seriously concerned” over West’s Sunday appearance at a South Carolina rally and reportedly says that the Christian entertainer is in the middle of a very serious bipolar episode.

West broke down in tears during his first campaign rally for the 2020 presidential election and claimed that he almost aborted his daughter.

West announced his presidential bid on July 5, but having missed the deadline to qualify for the ballot in several states, he qualified to appear on Oklahoma’s presidential ballot.

What did he say that’s reportedly got them so upset?

At the Sunday night rally in Charleston, South Carolina, West sobbed, saying that he had pressured his wife, Kim Kardashian, to abort their child North West in the months following the news of Kardashian’s pregnancy.

“I almost killed my daughter!” he shrieked. “I almost killed my daughter!”

“I was having the rapper’s lifestyle,” he recalled. “I was sitting up in Paris, and I had my leather pants on. … I had my laptop up, and I got all of my creative ideas. … And then the screen went black and white and God said, ‘If you f*** with my vision, I’m going to f*** with yours.”

West, openly crying at this point, said that the moment prompted him to phone Kardashian and tell her that he didn’t want her to have an abortion.

“I called my wife and she said, ‘We’re gonna have this baby.’ I said ‘We’re gonna have this child.’ … Even if my wife were to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world when I didn’t want to,” he said. “[Kardashian] stood up and she protected that child.”

According to TMZ, people around West believe he is in “desperate need of professional help,” but he reportedly refuses to listen to anyone.

The outlet adds that West’s remarks could hurt some of his businesses, “if not all of them.”

“His family and friends know comments like these are the things that trigger boycotts,” TMZ reports.

The Kardashian family is also unhappy that West discussed Kardashian’s first pregnancy with their daughter, North, and how the couple reportedly discussed abortion.

Finally, the outlet reports, “His family and friends are also upset because they feel Kanye is a distraction to what is a very important election.”

Elsewhere during his Sunday speech, West said that the media coverage of the rally would likely be negative.

“They’re going to run this,” he said. “They’re going to tell you that I’m crazy. [Well], the world’s crazy!”

Also during the rally, West said that new parents should be given $1 million to discourage abortion.

“Everybody that has a baby gets a million dollars,” West said, according to reports from the Associated Press. West reportedly referred to the move as “Plan A,” which is in stark comparison to emergency contraceptive pill “Plan B.”

He explained, “If you had the opportunity to be given a million dollars, just for being pregnant, would you have considered it? And then everybody would start having children, the greatest gift of life.”

West also said that famous abolitionist Harriet Tubman did not actually free slaves.

Abortion Harriet Tubman Intelwars Kanye 2020 kanye west Marijuana Presidential Election

Kanye West says Harriet Tubman didn’t free slaves, all parents should get $1M, and marijuana should be free

Kanye West held a campaign rally Sunday, and his remarks included some inflammatory claims about abolitionist Harriet Tubman and a bizarre proposal to help families so fewer people choose abortion, according to the Associated Press.

West is supposedly running for president, although he has qualified for the ballot in only one state, Oklahoma, so far. Sunday’s campaign rally was in South Carolina, where he’s seeking the 10,000 required signatures needed to get on the ballot in the state. He has until noon on July 20.

The rapper is attempting to run as an independent, although his alliance with President Donald Trump and his views on religion and abortion make him somewhat of a conservative-leaning candidate. For example, West has been aggressively critical of Planned Parenthood, although he believes abortion should be legal.

At the same time, West advocated for an outlandish policy to help families support children — a policy that would not be mistaken as conservative in nature.

“Everybody that has a baby gets a million dollars,” West said, according to AP. This plan was reportedly referred to as “Plan A,” a play off Plan B, the emergency contraceptive pill.

During his discussion about abortion, he tearfully said his mother considered aborting him, and that he even considered abortion for his own daughter at one point. From the New York Post:

The Chicago rapper wore a bulletproof vest and had the numbers “2020” shaved into his head as he addressed the crowd, revealing that he and wife Kim Kardashian West considered terminating their first pregnancy — but didn’t after he had a “vision from God,” according to a livestream of the event.

He then began to cry hysterically as he said: “My mom saved my life. My dad wanted to abort me.”

“I almost killed my daughter,” West, 43, continued in tears, referring to the couple’s eldest, North West.
“No more Plan B, Plan A,” he added.

“The only thing that can free us is by obeying the rules that were given to us for a promised land,” West said, according to Reuters. “Abortion should be legal because guess what? The law is not by God anyway, so what is legality?”

West stirred up controversy and lost some of the audience with his comments about Harriet Tubman.

“Harriet Tubman never actually freed the slaves,” West said while discussing economic inequality, prompting audible protest from the crowd. “She just had the slaves work for other white people.”

West also said marijuana should not only be legal, but it should be free.

The rally was, at times, contentious. West got into brief verbal altercations with attendees; one who asked him to name the “fellow billionaire” West referenced during an answer about gun reform, and another with the woman who asked that gun reform question. She posted a video about her experience online.

Kanye West filed to appear on Oklahoma’s presidential ballot despite confusion over whether he’s actually running

One day after reports that Kanye West’s presidential bid was not going forward, West completed the official process to get on the ballot in Oklahoma, the Associated Press reported.

Wednesday was the deadline to file for a spot on the ballot in Oklahoma, and a representative for West paid the $35,000 fee and completed the paperwork, indicating that he may be seriously pursuing a White House run for 2020.

Is this a real thing? It’s impossible to say for sure right now. West announced that he was running for president on Twitter on July 4.

West also filed a statement of organization with the Federal Election Committee detailing the intention to establish the Kanye 2020 campaign committee.

About a week and a half later, however, West adviser Steve Kramer said the rapper was out. From New York Magazine:

This all seemed real enough, and I reached out to West’s publicist for a response. The initial response was to loop in another spokesperson on the email. West’s team then went dark. As I waited for a response, I followed up with Kramer who told me, “He’s out.”

I asked what happened. “I’ll let you know what I know once I get all our stuff canceled. We had over 180 people out there today,” Kramer said.

TMZ reported that West’s family was concerned that he was dealing with a bipolar episode, something that happens somewhat regularly.

West has not publicly commented on the campaign to clarify his intentions. With deadlines for filing approaching or past in many states, West would have to get hundreds of thousands of valid signatures across the country to get on ballots, and the apparent disorganization of his effort doesn’t bode well for its success.

What are his political stances? West, who has been supportive of President Donald Trump in the past, has expressed strong pro-life beliefs, most recently during a Forbes interview in which he tied Planned Parenthood to white supremacy.

“Planned Parenthoods have been placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the Devil’s work,” West said.

West has turned his life to Christ in recent months, producing exclusively Christian music and speaking and performing at churches across the country. In his presidential campaign announcement tweet, he wrote, “We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God.”

West has been heavily critical of the Democratic Party and said he would’ve run as a Republican if it wasn’t for President Trump. Still, he has been active in social justice protests in the wake of recent killings of black Americans, donating millions of dollars and participating in a march in Chicago.

Accounts Bitcoin hack Intelwars kanye west Obama Twitter

Twitter accounts of Elon Musk, Kanye West, Joe Biden, and others hacked in ‘unprecedented’ breach

Several high-profile Twitter accounts were hacked on Wednesday, with the perpetrators sending tweets from victims in an apparent scam seeking funds via Bitcoin.

What are the details?

Accounts of corporations, celebrities, billionaires, and politicians were hijacked in a massive hacking scheme, including Apple, Uber, Kanye West, Elon Musk, and Joe Biden.

Wired reported that during the afternoon, several prominent accounts including “major cryptocurrency players were hacked within minutes of each other,” and that “they all shared an identical message about ‘giving back to the community’ and a link to a site called ‘cryptoforhealth.'” The outlet called the security breach “unprecedented.”

Over the course of a few hours, the scammers were able to collect more than $100,000 from people who clicked on the link and submitted funds.

As news of the hack went viral, Twitter locked the accounts of its verified “blue checkmark” users, disabling them from sending tweets as the social media platform investigated. The company’s support team tweeted, “We are aware of a security incident impacting accounts on Twitter. We are investigating and taking steps to fix it. We will update everyone shortly.”

Anything else?

While Twitter scrambled to address the massive hacking issue, Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.) — who has been critical of the platform — sent a letter to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey demanding answers.

The senator voiced his concern that that “a successful attack on your system’s servers represents a threat to all of your users’ privacy and date security.”

“Please reach out immediately to the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation and take any necessary measures to secure the site before this breach expands,” Hawley wrote.

He then requested that Twitter respond to a series of questions after “immediate concerns” of the security incident have been handled, including, “Did this attack threaten the security of the President’s own Twitter account?”

Ballot deadlines Election 2020 He's out Intelwars Kanye president kanye west

‘He’s out’: Despite presidential aspirations, Kanye West has reportedly missed several ballot access deadlines

Kanye West’s short-lived attempt at running for president in 2020 appears to be over as the rapper has missed the deadline to get on the ballot in several states, according to a report by Ben Jacobs at the Intelligencer.

After reportedly amassing a sizable team of operatives aimed at gathering signatures and getting the prospective candidate on ballots, the efforts abruptly ended and now the deadlines have passed or are passing.

What are the details?

“He’s out,” said Steve Kramer, a get-out-the-vote specialist who was hired by West to get on the Florida and South Carolina ballots, in a July 9 text conversation with Jacobs. Kramer was reportedly part of a large team tasked with gathering signatures in the states over the last week ahead of the Wednesday deadline for independent candidates.

He told Jacobs last week that West’s team was “working over weekend [in Florida], formalizing the FEC and other things that they’ve got to do when you have a lot of corporate lawyers involved.”

“They got a lot of people who they’ve got both on their volunteer side and their contracted side,” Kramer said, adding that “we had overwhelming support to get him on the ballot.”

But the operation apparently stymied. Kramer seemed to indicate that West had second thoughts about running,

“I have nothing good or bad to say about Kanye,” he told Jacobs after the operation ended. “Everyone has their personal decision about why they make decisions. Running for president has to be one of the hardest things for someone to actually contemplate at that level.”

Anything else?

West made headlines over Fourth of July weekend when he tweeted out a teaser of his 2020 presidential aspirations. Many believed the tweet to be a joke or a publicity stunt — but then West followed up the tweet with a wild Forbes interview, in which he confirmed his intentions.

Jacobs’ report takes the story even further, suggesting that West was not only speaking of his intentions, but was actually building some semblance of a real campaign before things fell apart at the last minute.

Jacobs notes that this fact alone is an indicator that a future run is a very real possibility, perhaps in 2024, as West has mentioned before.

“It may not happen this year, but certainly West could run for president in the future. Donald Trump flirted multiple times with a presidential bid before his now infamous descent down the golden escalator in 2015. West’s ambitions to be a presidential candidate should probably be taken more seriously than his ambitions to be Willy Wonka,” he wrote.

Abortion Devil's work Intelwars kanye west Planned Parenthood

Planned Parenthood responds after Kanye West says the abortion provider does the ‘devil’s work’

Abortion giant Planned Parenthood has issued a response after mogul Kanye West said that the group is doing “the devil’s work” in black communities.

What are the details?

During an interview with Forbes published Wednesday, the rapper said he believes that “Planned Parenthoods have been placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the devil’s work.”

Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s director of black leadership and engagement, Nia Martin-Robinson, told Blast in response:

Black women are free to make our own decisions about our bodies and pregnancies, and want and deserve to have access to the best medical care available.

Any insinuation that abortion is Black genocide is offensive and infantilizing. The real threat to Black communities’ safety, health, and lives stems from lack of access to quality, affordable health care, police violence and the criminalization of reproductive health care by anti-abortion opposition. At Planned Parenthood, we trust and we stand with Black women who have, and continue to lead the charge when it comes to the health, rights, and bodily autonomy of those in their communities.

The Planned Parenthood organization also tweeted, “Stigmatizing Black people by suggesting that they are unable to make their own decisions about their bodies, families, and lives isn’t new, nor is it a coincidence – it’s a ploy pulled directly from the anti-abortion playbook.”

In a post linked to an article on West’s comments, the organization added, “We don’t know who needs to hear this, but when we say that no one should stand between a woman and decisions about her body when it comes to health care, that really means NO ONE.”

West, who announced via tweet on July 4th that he is running for president in 2020, also reportedly doubled down on his anti-abortion stance on Twitter Wednesday evening but then re-thought his post.

According to Complex, West “took to Twitter to post a screenshot of a Google search of ‘what does a 6 month fetus look like.’ He captioned the tweet, which he’s since deleted, ‘These souls deserve to live.'”

Campaign 2020 democratic party Donald Trump Intelwars kanye west

Kanye West throws away MAGA hat, slams Democratic Party, and explains his presidential campaign

Rapper Kanye West revealed Wednesday that he no longer supports President Donald Trump.

West, who announced over the weekend that he would run for president in 2020, told Forbes in a wide-ranging interview that he has decided to lay aside his red “Make America Great Again” ball cap.

“I am taking the red hat off, with this interview,” West said.

West explained that he is campaigning “to win” — and in light of reports indicating that he would siphon votes away from Democratic nominee Joe Biden, West said he is OK hurting the Democratic Party to benefit Trump.

“To say that the Black vote is Democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy,” West said.

The music mogul explained that he will run as an independent — but would campaign as a Republican if Trump were not seeking re-election.

However, despite running against Trump, West had nothing but praise for the president. “Trump is the closest president we’ve had in years to allowing God to still be part of the conversation,” he said.

West also made his disdain for the Democratic Party very clear. He said:

That is a form of racism and white supremacy and white control to say that all Black people need to be Democrat and to assume that me running is me splitting the vote. All of that information is being charged up on social media platforms by Democrats. And Democrats used to tell me, the same Democrats have threatened me…. The reason why this is the first day I registered to vote is because I was scared. I was told that if I voted on Trump my music career would be over. I was threatened into being in one party. I was threatened as a celebrity into being in one party. I was threatened as a Black man into the Democratic party. And that’s what the Democrats are doing, emotionally, to my people. Threatening them to the point where this white man can tell a Black man if you don’t vote for me, you’re not Black.

West also told Forbes:

  • His foreign policy would focus on “protecting America, first, with our great military.”
  • He is pro-life because “I’m following the word of the Bible.”
  • He believes Planned Parenthood clinics “do the Devil’s work.”
  • He has never voted in his life.
  • He contracted coronavirus in February.
  • Black History Month is “torture porn.”
  • He is running for president because “God just gave me the clarity and said it’s time.”
  • Prayer should be reinstated in schools.
  • He is against the death penalty.
  • He wants to end police brutality, but “police are people, too.”

“I am in service of our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ, and I put everything I get on the line to serve God,” West said.

Coronavirus COVID-19 economic stimulus Intelwars kanye west pandemic Paycheck protection program

Kanye West got millions of dollars from the government Paycheck Protection Program

Rapper and business owner Kanye West received millions of dollars from the federal government’s Paycheck Protection Program for his clothing and sneaker company, according to the Associated Press.

West’s brand, Yeezy, employed 106 people as of February and received between $2 million and $5 million as a part of the government COVID-19 economic relief package, according to the Treasury Department.

West is a billionaire, with a reported net worth of $1.3 billion, according to a Forbes analysis from April. Most of that wealth is a result of the success of Yeezy, which is in partnership with Adidas. West reportedly owns 100% of Yeezy.

The Paycheck Protection Program offered loans to companies with 500 or fewer employees, with the opportunity for those loans to be forgiven if they are used for payroll or other qualifying expenses.

The Associated Press reported some other notable recipients of the loans, such as sculptor Jeff Koons, who got $1 million to $2 million for his studio that employs 53 people. He sold a sculpture for $91 million last year.

Treasury data showed that 583 asset management companies and private equity firms (which the AP noted “were generally not badly hurt by the coronavirus pandemic”) took out loans to support about 14,800 jobs.

Grover Norquist’s Americans for Tax Reform Foundation took $350,000 from the Paycheck Protection Program. West Virginia GOP Gov. Jim Justice, a billionaire who may be the wealthiest person in the state, received at least $6.3 million in PPP loans for several of his family businesses.

The PPP program began with some controversy, as companies that presumably didn’t need the money urgently took out loans, while some small business owners struggled to navigate the process and get approved.

The NBA franchise the Los Angeles Lakers, for example, took out a $4.6 million PPP loan, which was later repaid after backlash. Fast food chain Shake Shack took a $10 million loan, which it also returned.

2020 presidential election Intelwars Joe Biden kanye west President Donald Trump

Kanye West’s presidential bid will only hurt Joe Biden’s chances of winning, betting site predicts

An online
betting site predicts that rapper Kanye West’s presidential bid will only serve only to hurt former Vice President Joe Biden’s chances of winning the 2020 presidential election.

West
announced his presidential bid on July 4.

In a tweet, the rapper
wrote, “We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States! #2020VISION.”

What are the details?

Bet Online opened on Sunday with West added at 100/1 odds — or +10,000 — to win the 2020 presidential election, according to The Wrap.

Biden, the site’s favorite, moved down from 5/9 (or -180) to 5/8 (or -160) odds, and President Donald Trump’s odds improved with West’s announcement, moving from 3/2 (or +150) to 13/10 (or +130).

According to Bovada, a politics odds and futures site, West’s odds of winning the election are +6,000. His popularity is nearly the same as that of Vice President Mike Pence, who sits at +6,600. 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is at +5,000 to win, and former First Lady Michelle Obama sits at +8,000.

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk endorsed West shortly after his announcement.

On Twitter, Musk
told West, “You have my full support!”

What else?

Both the Republican and Democratic Parties have their presumptive nominees — Trump and Biden, respectively — and the deadline to file as an independent candidate has passed in a many states, including Indiana, Maine, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, and Texas.

Campaign 2020 Elon Musk Intelwars kanye west

Kanye West announces presidential campaign, already has first major endorsement

Rapper Kayne West announced late Saturday that he is running for president in 2020.

“We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future. I am running for president of the United States,” West tweeted, adding the hashtag “#2020VISION.”

As of Saturday evening, West did not have a campaign website, he had not officially filed with the Federal Election Commission, nor was it clear if West had campaign staff.

However, West has already received his first major endorsement — from close friend Elon Musk.

“You have my full support!” Musk told West on Twitter.

West has mentioned publicly many times his desire to run for the White House. However, as an ardent supporter of President Donald Trump, West said last year that he would wait until 2024 to run.

“When I run for president in 2024, we would have created so many jobs I’m not going to run, I’m going to walk,” West said.

A bid for the White House this late into the campaign season has serious challenges.

Not only do both major political parties already have their presumptive nominees — Trump for the Republican Party and Joe Biden for the Democratic Party — but the filing deadline has passed in many states to appear on the presidential ballot as an independent candidate.

Those states include Indiana, Maine, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, and Texas — equalling a whopping 102 Electoral College votes.

Intelwars Jesus is king kanye west Kanye west christian music Video Wash us in the blood

Kanye West stuns with timely, moving new single, video, ‘Wash Us in the Blood’

Rapper Kanye West has released his latest single, “Wash Us in the Blood,” from forthcoming album “God’s Country.”

This is the Christian rap mogul’s first new music since releasing “Jesus is King” in October and also drops with a music video.

What are the details?

West’s video features the rapper’s current vision of America in 2020 — complete with a morally degraded culture, violent and racist law enforcement officers, and living amid a global pandemic.

In the video, West begs for God’s deliverance for His people through Jesus’ blood sacrifice.

“Rain down on us,” West pleads in the lyrics, “wash us in the blood.”

He later adds, “Whole life being thugs/ no choice, selling drugs/ genocide, what it does/ slavery, what it does.”

The track also features rapper Travis Scott, who sings, “Thirty states still execute/ thou shall not kill.”

In another portion of the chorus, West also raps, “Wash us in the blood/ wash us in the blood/ and as we live in this evil and crooked and Jezebelic world.”

On the bridge, West and Scott together chant, “Holy Spirit, come down, Holy Spirit, come down, Holy Spirit, help now, Holy Spirit help now.”

Clips of the late Ahmaud Arberty and Breonna Taylor can also be seen throughout the video.

The video concludes with sobering footage from one of West’s Sunday Services rehearsals.

What are people saying about this?

Music critic Ben Beaumont-Thomas, in The Guardian, lauded West for the new song, calling it “masterful.”

“[West] is at his most powerful when he doesn’t try to be calm, but corrals his anger,” Beaumont-Thomas writes. “There’s a wider lesson there, perhaps, as the US faces its own moment of revelation.”

Critic Sam Moore, writing for NME, added that anyone on the fence about West will change their mind after listening to the new track.

“The purpose of ‘Wash Us In The Blood’: a familiar, in-yer-face kind of Kanye West creation that’ll pull his on-the-fence fans back in with the die-hards, all while setting us up nicely for our imminent trip to ‘God’s Country,'” he wrote.

Ahmaud arbery Breonna taylor George floyd George floyd protests Gianna floyd Intelwars kanye west Protests

Kanye West creates college fund for George Floyd’s daughter and donates $2 million to charities

Rapper Kanye West is creating a college fund for the 6-year-old daughter of George Floyd, the man killed by Minneapolis police last week, and is donating $2 million to charities related to Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, Fox News reported.

Floyd’s daughter, Gianna, knows her father is gone but does not know how he died. Her mother, Roxie Washington, told ABC’s “Good Morning America” that Gianna only knows that Floyd died because he couldn’t breathe.

“Kind of, I miss him,” Gianna said during the interview. “He played with me.”

West established a 529 education plan to fully fund Gianna’s college education. Gianna said on “Good Morning America” that she wants to be a doctor when she grows up.

In addition to the college fund, West is donating $2 million to charities and to support the families of Floyd, Arbery, and Taylor. Taylor was killed by Louisville, Kentucky, police during a no-knock raid at her home. Arbery was killed by men in Georgia who suspected that he was a burglar and chased him down.

The donation includes covering legal costs for the families and supporting black-owned businesses in Chicago that are in need.

West, who has in the past drawn polarizing reactions for being extremely vocal on political issues, has not spoken publicly about the recent killings that have sparked protests and riots across the country. Instead, West has marched with protesters in his hometown of Chicago and contributed to this situation with his presence and financial resources.

The march West participated in included current and former Chicago Public Schools students advocating for the school district to cut ties with the Chicago Police Department, the same way Minneapolis Public Schools severed ties with that city’s department in the wake of Floyd’s killing.

“We’re out here because CPS would rather put $33 million into keeping police in schools than $33 million into resources for our youth,” Taylore Norwood, one person involved in the protest, said, according to WLS-TV.
