Kanye West: The Left Tries to Control Black People with ‘Concept of Racism’

Hip-hop superstar Kanye West criticized the left at the White House on Thursday for trying to control black people with accusations of racism.

“A liberal will try to control a black person through the concept of racism because they know that we are very proud emotional people,” West said. “You think racism can control me? That don’t stop me, that’s an invisible wall.”

The famous rapper wore a Donald Trump campaign hat to the meeting, calling it his “superman cape” delivering an over 10-minute speech about his support for the president.

When reporters started asking him questions, he quickly responded.

“I think we need to care about all people,” he said.


Liberal Hotel Owner Offers To Take In Asylum Seekers, Finds Horrific Scene In Bathroom

As millions of mostly Muslim migrants flock to the West, their cultural and religious traditions follow across the borders as well. Although the political left insists that these practices are invaluable societal contributions, most find that multiculturalism is an opportunity for oppressive cultures to subjugate the others.

Of course, despite the left’s belief that crossing our borders magically transforms immigrants into respectable civilians, these new arrivals not only continue their customs, they also demand we accommodate them.

Thanks to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s progressive immigration policies, Canada is seeing a ceaseless flood of mostly Muslim immigrants spilling over its borders. In fact, the resource-rich country has been inundated with asylum seekers to the point in which they are running out of places to house them.

As part of a government initiative, Canadian hotels are promised subsidies for housing refugees. The problem is that some of these privileged, non-paying guests refuse to abandon their customs and assimilate, providing unsuspecting patrons with a traumatic dose of the left’s lauded diversity.


OPINION: Blacks’ Loyalty To The Democrat Party is Insane — Not Kanye West

Just as Democrats in the past gleefully attacked “uppity” African Americans, Democrats today cannot resist attacking high-profile African-Americans who dare to stray from the Democratic Party.

This has happened with Justice Clarence Thomas, General Colin Powell, Dr. Benjamin Carson, Dr. Condoleezza Rice and countless others. So, it comes as no surprise that liberals are now assailing gifted artist Kanye West for having the audacity to not only question his people’s blind loyalty to the Democratic Party but also to embrace Republican president, Donald Trump.

As punishment for these mortal sins, West has been cruelly targeted by very powerful liberal celebrities. Actor Chris Evans, for example, recently ripped West as someone “who doesn’t know history, doesn’t read books, and frames their myopia as virtue.”

ABC Executives Regret Firing Roseanne

Executives at ABC now believe that their decision to fire Roseanne Barr from their revival of Roseanne was a mistake and the network’s spin-off series The Conners may flop, according to a report from Mail Online.

Two senior executives at the network told the outlet that ABC President Channing Dungey’s decision to immediately fire the actress and cancel her show after she made racially charged comments about former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett was a “knee-jerk” decision that they would later regret.

“We didn’t think it through properly. What Roseanne did was wrong but we shouldn’t have rushed to fire her. It was almost a knee-jerk reaction by Ben [Sherwood] and Channing [Dungey] who should have launched an investigation,” one insider reportedly said. “This would have given them more time to listen to the public, advertisers and cast members to determine the best decision.”


Uh Oh, Kanye Escaped the Demo Plantation


Kanye West once again finds himself a “fugitive slave” of sorts for making his way via the Underground Railroad to an Oval Office meeting with President Donald Trump. There is nothing in this country that permits overt racism quite like a black person thinking for himself and refusing to toe the Democrat Plantation Party line.

West, of course, is no stranger to this type of controversy. We last wrote about his politically incorrect comments back in April. But neither is Kanye a conservative hero thoughtfully pushing Republican policies. (Remember, he’s the same guy who declared after Hurricane Katrina, “George Bush doesn’t care about black people.”) Let’s face it: This was a celebrity president glad-handing with another celebrity. As for West, his sole “crime” is being pals with Trump, whom Democrats are politically invested in tarnishing as a racist.

“Kanye West is what happens when Negroes don’t read,” CNN’s Bakari Sellers declared. Colleague Tara Setmayer joined in, declaring West to be “the token Negro of the Trump administration.” And CNN host Don Lemon summed it up, “What I saw was a minstrel show. …

Many Latinos Ignore Race Politics, Vote on Economy

Democrats are worried that their bet on Latino voting-power is failing amid President Donald Trump’s good economy, say media reports.

The Democrats’ bet seems to be failing because most second-generation and third-generation Latino voters are ignoring the Democrats’ racial-resentment pitch, and instead want to vote like other Americans: They primarily want to boost their jobs, families, schools, and neighborhoods, not fight other ethnic groups for a greater share of civic status and government aid.

“Hispanic voters were supposed to be the party’s future. It’s not working out that way,” said the headline on a article.

Facebook Says Russian Firms ‘Scraped’ Data, Some for Facial Recognition

On the same day Facebook announced that it had carried out its biggest purge yet of American accounts peddling disinformation, the company quietly made another revelation: It had removed 66 accounts, pages and apps linked to Russian firms that build facial recognition software for the Russian government.

Facebook said Thursday that it had removed any accounts associated with SocialDataHub and its sister firm, Fubutech, because the companies violated its policies by scraping data from the social network.

“Facebook has reason to believe your work for the government has included matching photos from individuals’ personal social media accounts in order to identify them,” the company said in a cease-and-desist letter to SocialDataHub that was dated Tuesday and viewed by The New York Times.

Facebook gave the companies until Friday to detail what data they had taken and then delete it all.

Trump’s list: 289 accomplishments in just 20 months, ‘relentless’ promise-keeping

The Trump administration’s often overlooked list of achievements has surpassed those of former President Ronald Reagan at this time and more than doubled since the last tally of accomplishments after his first year in office, giving President Trump a solid platform to run for re-election on.

As Trump nears the two-year mark of his historic election and conducts political rallies around the country, during which he talks up his wins in hopes it will energize Republican voters, the administration has counted up 289 accomplishments in 18 categories, capped by theconfirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

They include 173 major wins, such as adding more than 4 million jobs, and another 116 smaller victories, some with outsize importance, such as the 83 percent one-year increase in arrests of MS-13 gang members.


Christopher Rudolf running for seat on OC Council

Christopher Rudolf, 31, is making another bid for a seat on the Ocean City Council, having come close in 2014, when he came in fifth out of eight candidates vying for four open seats.

A jack-of-all-trades in some respects, Rudolf works as the flying team manager at the Kite Loft on Fifth Street in Ocean City. He is a licensed Realtor in Maryland and Delaware, and serves as a legislative assistant for the Senate Minority Office in Annapolis.

Rudolf has called Ocean City home since 2005, when he moved from Howard County, Maryland. He studied political science and history at Salisbury University, and found his love of politics.


Blasey Ford's FBI "Polygraph" Buddy Pressured Woman From Mystery Groping Party To Change Story

A former FBI agent and lifelong friend of Brett Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford allegedly pressured a woman to change her statement that she knew nothing about an alleged sexual assault by Kavanaugh in 1982, reports the Wall Street Journal. photo:
Leland Keyser, who Ford claims was at the infamous high school "groping" party, told FBI investigators that mutual friend and retired FBI agent, Monica McLean, warned her that Senate Republicans were going to use her statement to rebut Ford's allegation against Kavanaugh, and that she should at least "clarify" her story to say that she didn't remember the party - not that it had never happened.

The Journal also reports that after the FBI sent their initial report on the Kavanaugh allegations to the White House, they sent the White House and Senate an additional package of information which included text messages from McLean to Keyser.


Charles Paige: Evaluating Women in Combat

Defense Secretary James Mattis says "the jury is still out" on whether it's a good idea.

If there’s a bright side to the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation mess, it’s that it deflected attention from comments made by Defense Secretary James Mattis that on a slower news day would have triggered outrage from the same folks stirring the Kavanaugh pot and made Mattis a target for their mischief. During a recent question and answer session at the Virginia Military Institute (VMI), a cadet posed this query to Mattis:

Sir … first off I’d just like to say, pardon my language, but there are a lot of bad-ass women here, some [more] physically fit than I am, some smarter than I am, but I remember I was doing some research on the Marine Corps’ experiment to see if [having] females in combat arms makes us more combat effective, and I would just like to hear your thoughts on that.

The cadet was likely referring to a nine-month long test conducted by the Marine Corps in 2015 — the only test conducted by a service that assessed unit performance under field, combat-like conditions. Unsurprisingly, it that found that assigning females to combat-arms units broke down cohesion and made the units less effective. Although only a single example, the recent case of one of the first enlisted females serving as an infantry Marine seems to provide additional, real-world validation of the thesis. The now-demoted NCO pled guilty to fraternization (i.e., having a sexual relationship with a subordinate Marine that undermined good order and discipline in the unit) and will be discharged.

Solomon: DOJ "Smoking Gun" Redactions Due To National Embarrassment, Not "National Security"

The Department of Justice (DOJ) and the FBI have repeatedly pointed to concerns over national security in their refusals to declassify evidence in the Russia investigation. It is now clear, however, that the agencies are simply covering up embarrassing facts, according to The Hill's John Solomon.

How do we know this?

A previously minor footnote on Page 57, Chapter 3 of the House Intelligence Committee report on Russian interference notes thatFBI general counsel James Baker met with an unnamed person in September 2016 who provided information on the Russia case, including email hacking and a possible link to the Trump campaign.
