Kanye Omari West or Kanye West is not the sort of fella I expected to see in a Presidential race. Not to mock him or anything. Barrack Obama called him a “jack-ass” and that’s for a reason. The man is so self-centred, that the world doesn’t move along its own axis, but in his mind around his feet. That is the sort of person, Mr. West is.
So, on the 4th July, the Independence Day he launched his candidacy. The Federal Election Commission has nothing registered on him. Unless, he is using the “Kanye Deez Nuts West” for who is running for the Green Party. His by the way involved in the Kanye WestPac, which is run by treasurer Jeffrey Graham, based in Longmont, Colorado. A PAC created for the single candidature of Kanye West. That was registered the 31st August 2015. That have been planned for a while. The only documentation in that the PAC didn’t deliver it failed to fill in reports to the FEC in 2015 and 2016. Who knows, if the musician is thinking of reviving this WESTPAC.
With this in mind, the rapper haven’t prepared the paperwork or his legal team on the move of becoming a President in the Republic. The election is in November and surely some states his to late to register his candidacy. The man has no previous history as an elected official, and the US should consider electing that sort of fella twice.
The GOOD Music Mogul, the Kardashian in-law and whatever else his trading. Surely has a lot up his sleeve. No matter what he does now. Its a Molotov cocktail into the elections. It seems more like Kid Rock statement, who in 2018 wanted to run for the Senate as the Michigan Senator. However, that never happened.
If this was a publicity stunt, it would make sense. The man cannot shock the world with outrageous statements anymore. He has used the dictionary and showed his ignorance. Secondly, the man haven’t been political consistent, unless its his own self interest. He is one of the President’s Men and one of the proud supporters of Trump. Therefore, this is speculated to be ploy too.
No one really knows. We cannot know. It is not like the man is that stable. One minute his Yeezus, the next his Yandi and in a later edition his just Ye’. So, God’s know where his mind is and why he operates like this.
When you thought the Stormy Daniels scandal before the 2016 election was off the chains. This is more of the same. This man isn’t ready or have the ability to be a Presidential Candidate. There been plenty of drop-outs in the Democratic Party Race who would be more fit in a heart-beat. However, Mr. West can get his handlers to run his clothing-line, recording company and whatnot. But running the Republic?
How much more Circus does the United States need? Haven’t there been enough jokes and insincere reign the last 4 years with a reality-star named Trump?
West will only become a laughing-stock. He will not win. As an independent candidate in the cross-fire with the Libertarian Party, Green Party, Democratic Party and Republican Party. He will be the fifth wheel. Not that the two first parties has any chance too. It is a Biden versus Trump race by all means.
West is just a odd-ball and a wrecking-ball. If he stands, in the states he can still register. He will only be a punchline. He will not even drop a feature of 16 bars. Peace.
So everybody know he love white people” – Kanye West from the ‘New Day’ off the ‘Watch the Throne’ (Released in 2011).
I really didn’t want to comment on Kanye West, because what is there to say. He swallowed the “red-pill” and taken it so hard. It is hard to say anything else. If it is marketing scheme or pure love of Republican values? Who knows at this point?
I do not know about his brotherly love, I knew he met with Donald Trump on the 13th December 2016 and has continued from there. Who knows what really went down, as he has since then collected memorabilia and become brothers. Whatever that means for Trump who always needs some loyal snooze-buttons to further his agenda. As long as they steal the spotlight or not praising the President’s massive ego. Because that hurts him and then he will throw that person under the bus. Right now Ye is on the Trump-Train. For whatever reason that might be.
However, it is hard to make sense out of it, I had a feeling when he returned to Twitter, and was poetical and trying to mystic. That he had some sort of marketing plan behind it. Not like he would drop a project without any sort of foreplay. That wouldn’t be Ye. He needs the whole machine behind him, the orchestras and the whole company delivering the needs to played on every radio, be on the screens and be in talks of the town.
Now he steering into controversy. That must be because the beat he created to the recent song with T.I. sucked. The beat was boring and pale. It will not turn into fine wine, let me tell you that. It was neither soul or the beats we recognized from the past. Maybe it general laziness or that the controversy supposed to overshadow the quality of the song.
When Ye drops line like this on the ‘Ye Versus the People’, which was released yesterday:
“I feel a obligation to show people new ideas
And if you wanna hear ’em, there go two right here
Make America Great Again had a negative reception
I took it, wore it, rocked it, gave it a new direction
Added empathy, care and love and affection
And y’all simply questionin’ my methods” – Kanye West (Ye Versus the People, 27.04.2018).
It is hard to hear these bars, these lines and take it as nothing. Because the man in the past didn’t sound like this. We all change, like I have had a personal political journey with life. But I have my reasons for my changes. Its been from a liberal to more socialist view, because of the visions of benefits for society. I wonder what is his reasoning for rocking it? What did he do, other than the meeting? Did he say to Trump to hire Ben Carson for having a brother inside the Cabinet? Because there aren’t any or much positive political policies for Ye’ kind or African-American Community, either less and harder policies hurting these communities. If it is immigration wise or if it economical. These communities are hit hard, also the suspension of government funded programs and so-on. There aren’t much or anything Trump has done to make better for Ye.
Therefore, I have to take some bars from College Drop-Out that was released on 2004:
“Now niggas can’t make it to ballots to choose leadership
But we can make it to Jacob’s and to the dealership
That’s why I hear new music and I just don’t be feelin’ it
Racism’s still alive, they just be concealin’ it” – Kanye West (Never Let Me Down from the College Drop-Out, Released 10.02.2004).
It’s hard to hear the same man praising Trump and his agenda. A man that has no scruples to misuse White Supremacy, Anti-Immigration Slogans and let the state misuse ICE-Agents against own citizens. To get the support and Co-Sign from Ye. That is not easy, that is hard. Especially, when Ye used spit like this. It is hard and weird. No matter what reasons, it is hard. He has changed and Trump gave him a reason to do so, I guess. But at this point in time, the Republican’s are concealing their racism. They are doing it with the Dreamers, Muslim-Ban and everything else they can hit on minorities.
Therefore, it is weird to have Ye on this side of the political spectrum. It is like he is blind, because the President is praising him for his efforts. Taking a cup of tea in the Twinkle Tower in Manhattan and sipping the Kool-Aid. Who knows, but is not intelligent.
Even some bars from the Late Registration:
“Went from bein’ a broke man to bein’ a dopeman
To bein’ the President, look there’s hope man
This that inspiration for the Moes and the Folks man
Shorty come and see his momma straight overdosin’” – Kanye West (Crack Music from the Late Registration, 30.08.2005).
I don’t know if he plans to drop inspirational bars like in the future, because he switched to Luxury Rap and self-involved material long time ago. Just like Lil Wayne has to spit about Codein, Sex and Haters. That is just the game for these guys. However, there has been a social conscious side of Ye’, it is still there, but a dramatic shift in topics and defense.
“See that’s the problem with this damn nation
All Blacks gotta be Democrats, man, we ain’t made it off the plantation” – Kanye West (Ye Versus the People, 27.04.2018).
It is the narrative that has shifted, the defense of his acts now. Instead of being social conscious, he is now taking a very ordinary defense of Trump. It is like if we don’t like him, we have to be democrats. But that hasn’t been the direct issue, if it was the older conservative party, it would still have cracks, but it would have made more sense. That is why Powell and Rice was in the Bush administration. An Administration Ye’ spoke ill about, which did far less damage to the African-Community, than the current one. Even if the Bush Administration didn’t care much, they didn’t stop vital programs for the inner-cities and the poorest communities, in the same fashion as Trump. So the issues are really something significantly changed within the artist and person, Kanye West. Which wasn’t there in the past.
He is not the guy I used to listen too. Ye is gone full-MAGA. He will soon have talks directly with Tomi Lahren, be on Diamond & Silk, Hannity and whatever else craziness. Maybe even be on Fox & Friends and also InfoWars. Because why not? The hat shouldn’t be enough. If that is all, then it was easy treat from the President, instead of giving Ye something good for the time and energy. He is giving low-cost attribution for the Co-Sign and only one losing Ye. A fair trade for the President, indeed.
That is a victory for Trump in all of this, he get a Co-Sign and it cost him nothing. Not even 130k pay-off. Just barely minimum and a signature. Better then the rip-offs of Trump University. Ye took and shake his hand, thought he was brilliant and moved to become a supporter. If so. Kudos Ye, your not as socially conscious as I thought you were, your spirit wasn’t as enlighten as I thought. Because, the possibility of getting caught in the world-wind took you and now, you were let astray. Peace.
There are these days when I wonder when people will see what I see, as I see a fraudster, a liar and charlatan who has used his name to trade on misfortune of American citizens, both in Businesses and now in Politics. Now he promises jobs and tighter borders, giant walls and more xenophobia and fear of the ones migrating to the American Nation. That is the state of affairs that Trump promises; while also glorifying himself as a Demi-God.
That is why he hates to be questioned and even mentioned in a sinister way, even if it is true. As he congratulates himself and believe that killing families creating genocide is the way of making sure the Syrian civil war will be settled. This from the man who imports all kind of crap in his own name, while saying that American business is screwed by the Chinese and Mexicans; as he himself is earning money on branded goods from the same destinations.
So the man who now chosen another controversial VP Mike Pence, the current Governor of Indiana, who has become famous for establishing very harsh regulation on births and rights for abortion in his state, while also in his one-time governorship he even created more controversy with regulating stronger LGBT rights and their freedoms in public spaces as toilets and such, which have already been under-fire in other states. So the man that carries the water and makes sure the hair is straight of Trump has some dark horses in his home-run. The ironic part is that GOP or Republican Party can finally have candidate in Indiana that might beat the Democratic Party nominee in coming election. That should been a consideration while vetting the man behind Trump, but he picks from his guts; not his wits!
Trump promise the most beautiful and wonderful piece of everything, depending on the crowd and the state, higher lowest-minimum wage or polices for trade. They are shallow words and proving the insecure man that he is. The vain and simplistic, as he still in July 2016, ever since running for over a year, still hasn’t released his Tax-Returns; because he doesn’t have the character to drop his true value or his pocket-change as the reveling truth would show that he is not as rich as he claims or narrowly near the billions that supposed be there. If that we’re so he wouldn’t need to beg Koch brothers or go on ferrying for donor funding instead of campaigning in swing-states!
The whole ordeal, the whole empty pledges the smearing and rubbish throwing against both opponents in own party and everybody else in general; while praising dictators like Gaddafi,Kim Yung-Un and Vladimir Putin; claiming that America Nation and Economics is in shambles, blaming media for being biased while speaking like Fox News anchor on steroids. He could be dancing over the Media’s, that have been banned from following the campaign trail; which means a dozen media-houses for writing what he would call spiteful articles or portrait on screen.
So for me as European it is weird that he is even considered, with his track-record and scams are getting away from becoming a Nominee in General Party towards a General Election, while he has the balls to pick a VP that is Midwestern prototype of himself, just more clean and speaks the ordinary coded political language, instead of the bashing guts without any common knowledge the Donald!
But this is just my two-cents and I have described the man before, as Paul Manafort who got Corey Lewandowski fired and traded space to speak astonishingly about the efforts of Trump. Manafort is the key player in the Campaign Team behind Trump, he must know it’s a fools race right now and therefore taking his bet behind a narcissist who has no quarrels except for his own gains. So the real political place of the man is like balancing a donut over a tornado. The one day he might be Pro Trade-Zones and the next day lenient taxes instead to gain business.
So the pledges and promises are as shallow of the character of Trump, the fake and weak-tea that he offers shouldn’t be taken for the gold-covered label he uses on his company and walls of his Twinkie-Tower in the Rotten Apple. We can surely know that the America that we heard about as kids is gone, like wave it will come and go apparently. The land of liberty and equality must been torn to pieces to accept the candidature of a man of this stature. The land of tolerance and melting-pot must be drowned in redneck bashingKKK nonsense, instead of the Boondocks cartoons and Dave Chappell skits. This must be the reality as ‘Friends’ and ‘Seinfeld’ has stopped making more sitcom episodes, instead some other random crap made by Netflix and HBO.
So the world cannot be same… as the world is seeing the ability and possibility for a candidate like Trump, for a man with the world-view and rhetoric being capable of thrashing both seasoned and ambitions politicians with loyalties inside the Grand Old Party (GOP). Certainly the roses he promises are more old sour croutons instead. Peace.
I know many people would be more diplomatic, I will not because of his attitude and unpolished behaviour of little spoiled brat instead of serious politician. The Donald is a mess of man, the tanned gleeful asshole who has no heart or soul to speak off. He attacks anybody and only close to people when they are useful and if they start to dwindle he leave you be. Loyalty is only important as long as he can earn on it.
Trumps family that have roots on the island of Lewis on the coast of Scotland, where many have nicknamed him “Domhnall Iain”, which isn’t given to honour the man, instead to mark disgust with him. He can swallow spit and attack as much has he wants, we in Europe, except for the Ultra-Nationalist and the Right-Wing xenophobic politicians and supporters enjoy watching the madness called Trump.
That is because a man like Trump is living on fear, which the economic prosperity of United States is in tatters, even if the figures are saying otherwise. Since the downturned is stabilized, even if isn’t resurrection of old-industry like automobile in Detroit or Flint in Michigan state. There is more stable and the percentage is more stable since the house-bubble, but saying that is like fairy-tale for the Republicans. Well, Trump knows all about being saved in the midst of debt, that why he prides himself being a “King of Debt”, that because of the failures of Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts Inc , Trump Shuttle, GoTrump.com, Trump University, Trump Vodka, Trump Magazine, Trump World Magazine, Trump Steaks, The Trump Network and Trump Mortgage Company LLC. All of these well planned companies was run to the ground; reason why the name is more important than the product, since he earns more on license his name than delivering anything worth a buck.
When you comes with lies upon lies, when you claim to be such a splendid businessman, but have such amount of failed businesses. You have then the opportunity to question his savvy on it, even if the Trump Organization have a dozen businesses under it and have buildings to its name. That does not save his face, his face that lies more then it speaks the truth.
What I dislike is not how he flip-flops, even if he worse than well-seasoned politicians, flip-flopping is natural in politics. It’s the lies and claims the believing in conspiracy and acting like he can do wrong, but somebody does the same he blast them. He was attacking John McCain for being taken hostage in war, while he we’re partying the hell of out of his money. He speaks of balls, but never had the balls himself to go into the army or to war to serve his country. Still, he has the arrogance and diligence to address them like wankers! He should be more subtle, but that isn’t in his character, because he isn’t wise enough or has enough tact.
He can deceive and sell the soul of the Republican Party that has wished for his candidacy for so long that they didn’t even know it. The racist, xenophobia and the hatred for everything that does not fit the Christian Conservative values that are key parts of the RNC; they wanted a man who wasn’t cold blooded politician, who was gun-loving and free-speaking son of bitch. Though wished that he wasn’t married three times and coming with New York values. And also have the history buying the Democratic votes to fix his buildings.
Trump is a man who I despise, because of what he really stand for and how he is defended. When people says he isn’t really racist… I am just looking and wondering, why didn’t he ask to get longer away from the former KKK Grand-Wizard and why is he so connected to White Supremacist? Why does his rally throw out people of colour and not allowing them in? Why does he blame inner-city youth and talks of America Great Again! But never says when America was great? Or how he really thinks it is going to be great, yet again.
Trump is a rich man who has allowed to be bloated, nobody ask him real questions and never touched in an interview, as they want the ratings of having his orange-skinned ass in the studio or on the phone. He acts so chauvinist and male dominated as he attacks Hillary, while he claims she does the same things. Actually his campaigns becomes more and more like her with Super-PACs, RNC funding and billion stimulus package, that will also cover the borrowed money for the Trump primary elections in the GOP. So he is now pocketed like all the rest he supposed to be different from… the long list of nonsense is staggering.
It’s not like I can discuss his policies since he can negotiate his tax reform, his migration reform though not allowing Muslims, Mexicans and other emigrants… if they had done that about 50 years or 70 years ago, United States of America might never see Trump; Can Marty McFly go back in time and fix that? While he has policies to open Fracking, Coal Production and Oil drilling even in fragile areas. He is for it as long as there is possible money to be made by doing so. He will deal with everybody, if not he will kill their kids and families, as then he will silence terrorist and control better than the current leaders. Because that is healthy foreign policy, while pushing on bills on NATO and also questioning other partners or allies of US. That means that Iceland can expect that the Americans leave their nation and also that AFCON in Germany will be slimmed down, as the American First is putting a Bomber on JFK and bombing the crap out of Syria and Iraq. Second because Putin the friend of Trump will need his planes and his goodwill in the near future.
The rest of his values can be negotiated or decided by the states as long as doesn’t need to write Executive-Orders from the White House. That is because he plans to play golf like George W. Bush, somebody he looked up too, until his favourable ratings went down like many of his former businesses. He is only using people and the ones that will become loyal men the rest can scatter for the winds, because they are liars, crooks or even worse dishonest people. Well, who is this Trump character to judge other, aye?
At some point he used illegal Polish “Brigade” workers to build his Trump Tower, in the midst of workers strike; he used his ties to mob-bosses who by some strange coincidence supplied the dry-cement to build it also used mob-technic to silence the strike around the Tower; so the building could be built in time. So as long as Trump earns money on his ties with gangsters; he will use it, but if they are gangster from Mexico, who doesn’t serve him; then he want to send them packing over the border, Aghast, the irony right?
With all this in mind, with all the grand knowledge of how he operates, how can people still support and look up to this man. Trump at some point jumped on Mitt Romney for delivering his IRS Tax Returns late when he was the GOP Presidential Nominee. If I remember correctly it was in January 2012 Trump asked for Romney to deliver his Tax Returns and he did it late in the Election Cycle, therefore it got screened carefully, as they wanted to see what he didn’t wanted the world to see. Now that Donald Trump is himself the Nominee of the RNC, he still hasn’t delivered it and soon going to the Republican Convention. Like a gold-fish he forgets how he attacked other politicians and now does the same, just worse because he have tarnished others for the same actions. That implies that he have no moral accord.
Just as he have put honour on the name of the North Korean dictator Kim Jung-Un, just as he wants a close friendship with Putin and wants to kill families of terrorist. The way he back in the day worked with gangsters to build his Ivory tower named Trump Tower in New York. He is still accepted by the Republic Party and the honourable men, of Christian Conservative of America. That is worrying how little they care for honesty and legacy of those who are supposed to be conservative and Christians in the United States, that they will be behind a man that are strikingly not living up to their values; instead using it like a Con-Man to get their support. Another reason why I despise him, since the only sincere value he has in his body is that he loves his own name and his own voice on any TV-Network at any given time.
He is like a Political Kardashian, he is famous for being famous, he used once back in the day to actually build something. Back in the day he run lots of businesses to ground, he still have lots of business and property, many bought in the estate collapse of the 1970s through the networks of his father, bribed politicians and famous Italian gangsters in New York. This is the man the Republican National Committee, the Grand Old Party (GOP) which actually fits the hand in the glove. The Glove is Trump that covers the whole RNC/GOP while he is fisting the message of nothing to the American public. Because his words is just negotiations or maverick tricks of deception; he doesn’t care about values or honesty; he cares about his own position or serving the American Nation, the United States.
And that people put their trust in him is just blatant ignorance or factors of malfunctioning electoral procedure in the United States and their two major parties. Therefore men like him could all of sudden rise like weak phoenix from the ashes and act as saviour, while the real men see him as baboon with no honour. He might have some money, not as much money as he claims to have, if had that than he would have showed the through rough estimated value of his businesses. That he doesn’t have the character or bravery to even do, even he speaks like a macho-man, instead he ends up looking a weak-man who attacks everybody else, instead of saying what he really will do or how it will be under his leadership. Even his Campaign Manager Corey Lewandowski is usually blaming the Obama-Government, the RNC-Organization or even Clinton, instead of saying how Trump really will act in power; because he doesn’t know himself.
What is ironic that he claims that Clinton isn’t qualified, she might not been perfect in her role as Minister under Obama, she still have been in the Senate and knows how Capitol Hill works. That is more than Trump ever will know, as he doesn’t know what kind of Departments that exists. So Trump shouldn’t speak of qualifications, she might be wrong with E-Mails as Secretary of State, well, was it was correct to hire and work with Mob-bosses Trump? Both cases are in the past, one recent, the other older, but the one doesn’t counter the other.
So with all this in mind, as this is a rant for a tired European, who wishes not to see this Reality Kardashian Politician to get into office, as that should be for somebody with character, with a little subtlety and also moral authority; all of which Trump is differing from, I am not for Clinton either… if you think so, you are wrong as her husband will always be remembered for me, as his executive order to bomb an Aspirin factory in Sudan in 1998. That is the beauty of remembering stuff. That’s why my leaf is for Bernie Sanders he is the only honest candidate and man who can carry his history, even the ones where he standing on the wrong side in Congress, that is because he have actual arguments that within reason can understand. Not that he have coined on his name or his state, instead been a honest politician. Something that is rare, like a wildflower in the midst of a bush.
Donald J. Trump, you are not presidential, never will be presidential, you cannot turn yourself presidential or act presidential. Because you don’t own humility or character to pull it off, you have to make water to wine and even build your own presidential head on the Mount Rushmore, and still you wouldn’t be it. You can call other phony, you can call other men and woman dishonest, but you shouldn’t; because you haven’t really been that truthful yourself, aye?
