Good grief!

If it wasn’t obvious before, it should be now.

Kanye West is no conservative. He never was.

Although fond of President Trump, Ye’s left-leaning ways have been evident from the start.

The latest example includes donating $200,000 to a Chicago mayoral candidate described as a “Democrat Socialist.”

From Daily Wire:

Kanye West announced on Twitter Tuesday that he was taking a break from politics, after being tied to a “Blexit” campaign encouraging black voters to leave the Democratic Party. But his “break” from politics was as short lived as his dalliance with Republican activists; Thursday, the Chicago Sun-Times revealed that ‘Ye cut a second check — this time for $126,000 — to a Chicago mayoral candidate who identifies as a “Democratic Socialist.”

On Monday, Kanye West announced on his Twitter feed that he’d donated $73,000 to Amara Enyia, a “little known” Chicago mayoral candidate backed by his friend and fellow artist (and Chicago native), Chance the Rapper.

Thursday morning, the Chicago Sun-Times announced that Kanye had cut an additional $126,000 check to Enyia, bringing his total donation to just shy of $200,000.

After Trump won the 2016 election, Kanye met with him at Trump Tower in New York City.

More recently, Kanye had a high-profile meeting with Trump in the Oval Office.

West has been chastised by the left for taking such a stance, standing defiant.

Ultimately, Kanye’s half-conservative, half-liberal views have been making headlines for a good while now.

And yet, it appears Ye is done with politics for good – at least for now.

From Daily Wire:

In dramatic fashion, artist and clothing designer Kanye West announced that he’ll be distancing himself from politics to focus on his creative ventures.

Signaling what appears to be a departure from some of his recent political statements, Kanye wrote in a Tuesday tweet, “My eyes are now wide open and now realize I’ve been used to spread messages I don’t believe in.”

“I am distancing myself from politics and completely focusing on being creative,” he added.

On “Blexit,” via The Hill:

The T-shirts first appeared at Turning Point USA’s Young Black Leadership Summit on Saturday. Owens, the communications director for Turning Point USA, shared an image of the shirts and touted West’s involvement.

“Blexit is a renaissance and I am blessed to say that this logo, these colors, were created by my dear friend and fellow superhero Kanye West,” [Candace] Owens said.

Save conservative media!

House Minority Leader Says Democrats ‘Trying To Frame’ Trump Because They’re Scared Of Possible 2020 Outcome

Published

on

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy recently delivered a sharp statement about the motivations behind the current impeachment fever that has swept through the Democratic Party in Congress, stating the left is framing Trump because they’re scared of the potential outcome of the 2020 election. Here’s more of what McCarthy said via The Washington Examiner: “We’ve never had an impeachment in the first term,” McCarthy said on Fox News hours before the first public impeachment proceedings began in the House. “They are so afraid to face the president in the election; they’re trying to frame him.” McCarthy has been one of Trump’s strongest supporters on Capitol Hill since Democrats announced a formal impeachment investigation into the president’s conduct. Democrats have seized on a July 25 phone call between Trump and the president of Ukraine after a whistleblower alleged the president abused his power in asking the foreign leader to investigate Joe Biden. “There’s no due process, the president’s attorney is not in the room, cannot cross-examine, we cannot have our witnesses,” McCarthy complained. “We can’t have a whistleblower who this all started from, an individual who was not even on the phone call.” Over the last several weeks, the GOP has placed most of their focus on discrediting the whistleblower who made the initial complaint against the president and have requested that the individual be named and forced to testify in the public hearings. Republicans have repeatedly accused Democrats of running a “sham” impeachment with the goal of undoing the 2016 election. Democratic leadership has responded to the calls for the whistleblower to be named by stating that doing so would put his life in danger and would discourage future whistleblowers from coming forward in the future. https://youtu.be/ksOhd2IqPWs

Only Democrat Running Against Tom Cotton Drops Out Just Hours After Filing Deadline

Published

on

The only Democratic senate candidate in the state of Arkansas decided to call it quits just one day after the filing deadline. Josh Mahony, an executive for a nonprofit organization, was the sole Democratic candidate who was going to take on Sen. Tom Cotton in the 2020 presidential election. Mahony stated on Tuesday he was dropping from the race due to a “family health concern.” Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: In a statement posted to Twitter, Mahony commented on his withdrawal from the race and thanked his supporters. “It has been the honor of my life to be able to meet and visit with so many Arkansans over the last six months and hear their voices,” he said. “It was my sincere hope to be their advocate in Washington, D.C. However, in this moment right now, I need to focus on my family and place their interests first.” https://twitter.com/joshuamahony/status/1194348276759154689 Mahony raised around $250,000 to fund his bid against Cotton, but it was still unlikely that he would have won. Cotton easily beat his 2014 competitor, former Democratic Sen. Mark Pryor, and Mahony’s only other campaign experience was a failed 2018 congressional bid in which he earned half as many votes as his competitor, Rep. Steve Womack, Republican of Arkansas. The timing of Mahony’s decision to quit the race does not bode well for the Democratic Party, as the deadline to file to run in the 2020 presidential race has already passed. Michael John Gray, the head of the Democratic Party of Arkansas, stated that he didn’t learn about Mahony’s decision until someone sent him the tweeted statement. Gray is in talks with the Arkansas secretary of state’s office to see if they can get another candidate on the ballot despite the fact the deadline is expired. Arkansas has the…
