Kanye West Says He’s Done With Donald Trump

Kanye West has had a long and complicated relationship with US politicians, especially current president Donald Trump. West’s first time creating shockwaves in the political world was when he made headlines by accusing then-President George W Bush of “not caring about Black people.” Kanye had a strange relationship with Obama, and despite the two being friends at first, they seemed to have had a falling out somewhere along the way. Kanye’s relationship with Donald Trump has certainly been the most controversial of his political alliances. Now, after many years of support, Kanye recently told Forbes that he is done with Donald Trump, and will be running against him in the upcoming election.

On July 4, Kanye announced that he would be running for president, and also announced that his running mate will be a Wyoming preacher named Michelle Tidball. He has also said that he would run as an independent under the “Birthday Party”, “because when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday”.

This was not the first time he announced his intentions to run for president. In September 2015, Kanye announced that he intended to run for President of the United States in 2020. This was the first time he made public mention of his desire for the presidency He later said that he intended to run for President in 2024 due to Donald Trump’s win in the 2016 elections.

In February 2017, Kanye deleted all of his tweets about Trump in protest of the new president’s policies, particularly the travel ban. However, not long after that, he sparked controversy by posting a picture of himself wearing a Make America Great Again hat along with a series of tweets defending President Trump.

On October 11, 2018, West visited the Oval Office for a meeting with President Trump to discuss a variety of different issues. He and several other musicians watched Trump sign the Music Modernization Act.

In an interview with Forbes this week, Kanye shared his thoughts on politics and was asked about the policies he would put into place if he became president. With the small exception of his views on ending police brutality, Kanye’s politics were overwhelmingly Christian conservative. Kanye says that he wants to put prayer back in schools and ban abortions. He also said that he supports a strong military.

One of the most interesting things about Kanye’s Forbes interview is his insistence that he has lost confidence in Donald Trump.

“It looks like one big mess to me. I don’t like that I caught wind that he hid in the bunker,” Kanye said.

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian have used their influence with Trump to have multiple nonviolent offenders released from prison.

In many interviews given after his apparent mental breakdown a few years ago, West said that he disagreed with many of Trump’s policies, but had admiration for him because of the fact that he opened the door for other celebrities to become presidents.

He stated on numerous occasions that he intends to follow Trump’s lead in using his celebrity status to secure political power.

During a 2018 interview with Power 92.3’s DJ Pharris Kanye promised that the music industry would be strong under his reign as president.

“One of my main things [I’ll address] once I’m president is the medical industry. I’m going to make sure that the medical industry flourishes. There’s one thing I learned by hanging around with Jay-Z, and being married to my wife, is you can’t **** up the paper.. That’s the problem with a lot of the radical leaders in the past,” he said.

In an interview in 2018, Kanye admitted that he became addicted to opioids when they were prescribed to him after he got liposuction. The addiction may have contributed to his nervous breakdown in 2016. He has also said that he has been suicidal at times. In a 2019 interview with David Letterman, he said that he has bipolar disorder.

West is one of the best-selling digital artists of all-time. He’s the 7th highest certified artist in the US by digital singles (69 million). He had the most RIAA digital song certifications by a male artist in the 2000s and was the fourth best-selling digital songs artist of the 2000s in the US. In Spotify’s first ten years from 2008 – 2018, West was the sixth most streamed artist, and the fourth-fastest artist to reach one billion streams.

Mark Horowitz is a graduate of Brandeis University with a degree in political science. Horowitz could have had a job at one of the top media organizations in the United States, but when working as an intern, he found that the journalists in the newsroom were confined by the anxieties and sensibilities of their bosses. Horowitz loved journalism, but wanted more freedom to pursue more complex topics than you would find on the evening news. Around the same time, he began to notice that there was a growing number of independent journalists developing followings online by sharing their in-depth analysis of advanced or off-beat topics. It wasn't long before Horowitz quit his internship with a large New York network to begin publishing his own material online.

Photos Show Epstein Cuddling With Young Girl On Private Jet

New photos that were recently obtained by journalists at The Daily Mail show Jeffrey Epstein cuddling with a sleeping young girl. The photos are said to have been taken on Epstein’s notorious private jet. The late billionaire pedophile reportedly took the girl to Disney World and was returning home with her when the photos were taken.

The most disturbing image shows Epstein sitting in his airplane with the young girl laying on top of his lap. Other photos showed the group’s trip to Disney World, where Epstein, the young girl, and others were seen posing with Disney characters like “Piglet” from “Winnie The Pooh.”

The young girl in the photos has not been identified, and it is not clear if she was one of Epstein’s victims, but the images certainly paint an ugly picture.

The Disney trip reportedly took place in 2004, which was a few years before he was first arrested. However, many victims say that his abusive behavior goes back far earlier than 2004.

Epstein’s associate and one-time girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell is also believed to have been on the trip, although she does not appear in any of the photos. Some of the faces on the photos are blurred out.

A source who was on the trip said, “It was a fun day. We ate in a restaurant with two of Jeffrey’s friends who he met there. Jeffrey however did not eat lunch. I hardly ever saw him eat at a restaurant. Food always had to be prepared by a personal chef.”

The source also said that Epstein and his entourage had full VIP access to the theme park and never had to wait in any lines.

“We were given a VIP tour of the park and someone was escorting us around from ride to ride. The group never had to be in line for a ride or a rollercoaster, we went to the front of the line each time,” the source told the Mail.

The source also claimed that the photo was innocent, despite how bad it looks in the context of what we now know about Epstein.

“It had been a long day and the girl just fell asleep in his arms. The picture is terrifying based upon what we know now but it was entirely innocent,” the source said.

Epstein reportedly flew about ten other people to Disney World for the Trip, including Ghislaine Maxwell, his personal assistant Sarah Kellen and Slovakian model Nadia Marcinkova.

New details about Epstein’s crimes and his associates are expected to be revealed during the upcoming criminal trial against Ghislaine Maxwell. Epstein and Maxwell were connected with major players on both sides of the political spectrum who have a lot to lose if Maxwell discusses their involvement with Epstein’s criminal network. With how many people that Epstein was connected to there is no telling what can be revealed in the upcoming trial.

Epstein allegedly died in his jail cell on August 10, 2019. The medical examiner ruled the death a suicide. Epstein’s lawyers have disputed the ruling, and there has been significant public skepticism about the true cause of his death.

Genetically Modified Mosquitoes Were Released In Florida

Environmentalist groups have been warning about the danger of releasing genetically modified mosquitoes into the wild for years, but a plan to release the GM insects in the United States for the first time is scheduled to continue as planned.

Millions of GM mosquitoes will be released in the Florida Keys as a part of a pilot program that officials hope will reduce the spread of diseases like dengue, yellow fever, and the Zika virus.

The unprecedented release is being orchestrated by the British-based biotechnology firm Oxitec, and the Florida Keys Mosquito Control District (FKMCD), according to Reuters.

The project hopes to reduce the prevalence of the Aedes aegypti species, which is responsible for spreading many infections diseases.

On May 1st, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) granted an experimental use permit to Oxitecon for the release of the mosquitoes.

While regulators have signed off on the program and are confident of its safety, local residents are obviously very concerned about these insects being released in their back yards.

The plan has already been set into motion, and some of the insects have already been released. Oxitec opened about 6 boxes containing the OX5034 modified mosquito in the Florida Keys last week.

In theory, these genetically modified male mosquitos will mate with wild females, and their genetics will cause the children to die, which they hope will lead to a total collapse of the wild population.

However, there are also many different things that can go wrong with this type of live experiment, and there is growing concern among scientists that this technology may not be ready for deployment. Many experts have also suggested that the risks have not been studied thoroughly enough. Some scientists are warning about the potential unintended consequences that can come from unleashing such insects into the wild. For example, researchers are entirely unaware of what type of allergic reactions that these insects could cause if they interact with people.

Meredith Fensom, Oxitec’s head of global public affairs, told Reuters about the release.

“Inside we have a small container, and this is what we put the mosquito eggs in. We also have a small container for food. We leave it open. And then we fill the box, less than halfway full, with water. We close the lid, and after a week or two, our non-biting male mosquitoes begin to emerge,” she said.

These boxes contained roughly 12,000 mosquitoes, but the Oxitec says that they plan to release tens of millions of these incects in the region throughout the year.

This is not the first time that the company has released GM mosquitoes into the wild, this is just the first time that it has been done in the United States. Oxitec has previously launched similar projects in places like Brazil, Panama, the Cayman Islands and Malaysia, where they claim to have a success rate of over 90%.

The mosquitoes have also been designed to emit a fluorescent glow, so that when they are captured.

“That’s how we monitor for the project before, during and after to understand the mosquito population,” Fensom explained.

However, many experts disagree with the plan and have made attempts to organize against this strange use of genetic technology.

Bill Gates’ Relationship With Epstein Led To His Divorce

According to a shocking report published this week in the Wall Street Journal, Melinda Gates began meeting with divorce lawyers in October of 2019, which is around the same time that Bill Gates was listed among Jeffrey Epstein’s close associates.

According to sources close to the Gates family that were interviewed by the Journal, and documents shared with the site, Melinda said that her marriage with Bill was “irretrievably broken.”

The divorce was set into motion immediately after Bill Gates was implicated as a close friend of Epstein. In reports at the time, it was noted that Gates began his relationship with the notorious pedophile after he was already convicted of crimes against children.

However, Bill’s friendship with Epstein was a source of contention in his marriage long before his wife filed for divorce. In fact, she warned him not to associate with Epstein due to his notorious reputation and criminal convictions, an employee of the Gates Foundation told The Daily Beast. Despite this warning, Bill and some of his employees at the foundation continued to meet with Epstein.

When asked for a comment, a spokesman for Bill Gates told the Journal that he denied being friends with the late pedophile, referring to a statement he gave the paper last year saying that, “I met him. I didn’t have any business relationship or friendship with him.”

When pressed by other reporters about the relationship, Gates said that his proximity to Epstein was only a result of them both being so rich.

A statement that Bill and Melinda Gates made on Twitter last week made no mention of Epstein, and instead painted the picture of a professional couple breaking up on amicable terms.

“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage. We have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives,” the statement read.

The couple has been married since 1994 and there was reportedly no prenuptial agreement to decide the terms of their divorce. They have agreed to equally split their assets, although they are claiming that they will give much of the money away. They have made no public comments as to the private reasons behind their divorce, but the timing of the filing is certainly suspicious, and many people close to the family suspect that Bill’s connection to Epstein could have been a factor.

According to prosecutors, Epstein operated a “vast network” for child human trafficking between 2002 and 2005, which allowed him to “sexually exploit and abuse dozens of underage girls.” Many long-time friends like Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, and Prince Andrew have been implicated in Epstein’s illicit activities.

Epstein was arrested a second time on July 6, 2019, on federal charges for the sex trafficking of minors in Florida and New York. He died in his jail cell on August 10, 2019. The medical examiner ruled the death a suicide. Epstein’s lawyers have disputed the ruling, and there has been significant public skepticism about the true cause of his death.
