Kim Kardashian is Reaching Out to Trump for Special Cause, Liberals May Lose it

Published

Progressives have been having a collective meltdown for the last several weeks after Kanye West came out in support of President Trump with a series of tweets featuring the rapper with a signed MAGA hat.

Folks have been telling him to “shut up and sing,” rather than share his political views, which is hypocritical to the max, given the vast majority of Hollywood “elites” are all hardcore left-wingers who are constantly expressing their own opinions on the issues of the day in the most obnoxious ways possible.

Well, if the left had a hard time swallowing that pill, then they are most definitely going to choke on this one.

Apparently Kanye’s wife, Kim Kardashian, is reaching out to the Trump administration for a very special cause.

Kardashian has reached out to the White House, and specifically President Trump’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, for a cause she is rallying behind, according to Vanity Fair which labeled them the “unlikeliest crime-fighting duo.”

Kardashian is reportedly working to secure a pardon for a 62-year-old great-grandmother who is serving a life sentence for nonviolent drug-related offenses.

Alice Marie Johnson had spent 21 years in jail as of October 2017 when Kardashian shared a Mic video about Johnson onto her Twitter page.

Johnson was first arrested back in 1993 and was then convicted of drug conspiracy and money laundering in 1997.

After going through a rough patch in her life — divorce, loss of a child, bankruptcy — Johnson became involved with cocaine dealers.

This was her very first offense and it landed her a life sentence without the possibility of parole.

Kardashian wants to bring attention to the case and get it put on the president’s desk in the hope he will grant Johnson a pardon.

The reason she’s reaching out to Kushner is because he and his wife Ivanka Trump are champions of criminal justice reform and might be able to influence the president to take a look at the case.

Johnson has become an ordained minister while in prison and mentors and tutors other inmates. She had hoped former President Obama would grant the pardon, but she was not among the 46 people who had their sentences commuted in 2015.

At the end of the day, it seems Johnson has turned her life around and given that her crimes were not violent in nature, it seems fitting to give her a second chance at life as a free person and not have her finish her journey behind bars.

One of the great things about America is that there’s so many opportunities for a comeback. What better way to showcase that than by giving Johnson a second chance?

Musk Steps Back from Twitter Purchase After ‘Fake Users’ Concern

Or is Musk a better negotiator than we give him credit for?

Published

on

Free speech advocates around the world have been rejoicing in recent days, as Tesla CEO Elon Musk appeared to be on the verge of purchasing social media giant Twitter.

The site, which has grown restrictive for conservative viewpoints in recent years, was going to be “unlocked” by Musk, who firmly believed that a more open, inclusive Twitter would be a much more powerful tool than previously imagined.

But now, as his team uncovers concerns about the site’s real user number, Musk is taking a step back.

Tesla billionaire Elon Musk has put his plan to buy Twitter on what he called a temporary “hold,” raising fresh doubts about whether he’ll proceed with the $44 billion acquisition.

Musk tweeted early Friday that he wanted to pinpoint the number of spam and fake accounts on the social media platform. He has been vocal about his desire to clean up Twitter’s problem with “spam bots” that mimic real people, and he appeared to question whether Twitter was underreporting them.

But the company has disclosed in regulatory filings that its bot estimates might be low for at least two years, leading some analysts to believe that Musk could be raising the issue as a reason to back out of the purchase.

Musk wasn’t shy about his issue.

“Twitter deal temporarily on hold pending details supporting calculation that spam/fake accounts do indeed represent less than 5% of users,” Musk tweeted Friday morning, indicating he’s skeptical that the number of inauthentic accounts is that low.

The eccentric billionaire would go on to insist that he still fully intends to purchase the site, leading some to speculate as to whether or not this might be a simple negotiating tactic.

Sony Bucks Beijing By Refusing to Censor Spiderman Movie

At least someone is refusing to capitulate to China.

Published

on

China has long been exploiting their citizenry, thanks to their commitment to the cruel tenets of authoritarian communism and their unwavering disregard for even the most basic of human rights.  This has allowed the CCP to treat Chinese citizens like cattle, working low-paying jobs to produce goods that can then flood the international market, essentially milking them for money.

In order to keep the people of China happy in this arrangement, the government has had to severely limit the sorts of ideas that can be viewed in art or books, lest their human livestock were to get some strange ideas about freedom.

In order to do this, China has leveraged their enormous consumer base against some of the west’s most powerful entertainment companies, demanding that they tamp down certain references in books, films, television, and music.

A recent attempt to manipulate one Marvel’s biggest blockbusters has not gone Beijing’s way, however.

Sony reportedly refused the Chinese government’s demand to scrub the Statue of Liberty from Spider-Man: No Way Home.

According to Puck on Sunday, citing “multiple sources,” the Chinese government requested the Statue of Liberty be digitally removed from the film, despite its inclusion in a pivotal scene. Sony rejected the request.

The Chinese government then asked if the Statue of Liberty could be, according to Puck, “minimized in the sequence: if Sony could cut a few of the more patriotic shots of [Tom] Holland standing atop the crown, or dull the lighting so that Lady Liberty’s visage wasn’t so front-and-center.” Sony considered the request, but declined.

China has demanded several changes to major movies throughout the years, including a massive adjustment to the end of Fight Club, in which the protagonists’ plot to destroy the credit banking system was removed and replaced with an epilogue stating that all of the characters involved were arrested by police…even the character that was a figment of someone’s imagination the whole time.
