The Candace Owens Moment: Why She’s A Threat To The Status Quo

Published

on

Candace Owens is taking Tomi Lahren to task for denouncing Kanye West.

The conservative movement’s outreach to beloved entertainer West — during which time he achieved #1 ranking on the pop music chart — was a whirlwind for all Americans. Now, with West supporting the president but backing away from outright political activism, the media wants to ask why Candace Owens might have exaggerated West’s role in the #BLEXIT movement, which encourages black Americans to exit the Democratic Party.

Wrong question — especially after Kanye’s MAGA hat-wearing appearance in the Oval Office, where he defended the Second Amendment. Kanye West is a Deplorable, and was clearly working with Owens. His brand might be in jeopardy in the fashion world now for being a conservative, but most Americans don’t have anything to do with the fashion world. Where West might have seized his photo op with the president to become Trump-like himself, he instead decided to play Elvis. A disappointment, but not a setback for Candace Owens.

Candace Owens’ response is authentic, making it clear that she carries her good judgment with her in real time — a much-needed quality in a world of Non-Playable Characters who get the script in advance.

Here is Candace Owens’ full statement:

Let me first say, to those that have relished in my hurt and pain:

If knowing that I bleed and that I hurt brings you comfort and celebration— then there is no question that you won last night.

Celebrate.
Be comforted.

I grew up in one of those storied unstable homes. I experienced more hurt before I turned 10 years old then most will experience over a lifetime. Listening to music from Kanye West and Jay-Z is what I give credit to having kept my spirit alive on some of the very worst days. It’s a crazy thing to know that you wake up one day and someone whose words and lyrics literally kept your spirit alive is suddenly your friend.

God is good.

There are so many people in this world who love Kanye West because they know he is great and powerful and cool, but not every person in this world knows what it means to have someone’s rap lyrics literally save you.

The people that attended the BLEXIT launch do, however. The emotion in that room was real and was raw, and to them – like to me – Kanye is a literal superhero.

The moment we were building— a moment that included kids who had similar backgrounds and experiences to me; the moment that included people who had served prison sentences, grown up without fathers, were currently living in group homes, or took their first plane rides that day— was never about cameras or celebrities or press or designs. It was about superheroes. It was about the Herculean strength it takes to chase after your dreams when everyone tells you that they can’t be realized.

#BLEXIT was always about teaching those people to fly.

If I had to imagine what it would feel like to have a bullet pierce my heart, it would be exactly like the moment I learned Kanye told the world he felt I had used him.

I wouldn’t wish the way I felt last night upon my worst enemy.

I never once said that Kanye designed the t-shirts for BLEXIT. This is a lie that seems to have made its way around the world; a lie I would like to again correct for the record. Kanye was completely right to feel used in that regard and as I have done personally, I would like to publicly apologize to him for any undue stress or pain the effort to correct that rumor has caused him, his business relationships, or his family. He simply never designed them.

I am a leader, and I would like to lead in this moment by stating that any and all confusion relating to this topic is therefore my fault, entirely.

I would also like to publicly apologize to President Trump, as I know that Kanye’s tweets were rapidly misinterpreted as a shot to this administration.

His tweets were aimed at me and me only, rightfully, for my personal failings.
I bare full responsibility.

There is no manual to any of this. I wake up everyday, and I do what I think is right. And today, this is what I feel in my heart to be right.

I conceptualized BLEXIT in February of this year backstage at CPAC. Nobody really knew me then, but I knew in that very moment that I was the person who was meant to lead black America out of the darkness and away from the lies and deception of policies that have paralyzed our progress.

To all those in the black community who felt their hearts break last night, remember this moment. Remember these emotions. Remember the people who enjoyed your pain, and remember those who stood by your side.

We all know how lonely this road can be.

We all know how unpleasant this journey can be, but you will never lose me, and I will never lose you.

#BLEXIT will happen because the universe and God are on our side.

To those who have donated and supported BLEXIT, I would like to clarify that in no way are you supporting the work of Kanye West.

You are supporting an orphanage of thought for free thinkers. A figurative home for those who have been excommunicated for daring to view themselves as more than just victims. You are supporting our love, compassion, and conviction that there is a way to better ourselves without government handouts.

BLEXIT represents the vision of the black community becoming victors. It represents an America united by the shared belief that no matter where you come from – if you work hard and stay focused on the good things— we can all be superheroes.

We can and – at long last – we will.

#BLEXIT

As Biden Eyes “Transition Away” From Fossil Fuels, Pennsylvania is Second-Largest Natural Gas Producer in US

Destroying Pennsylvanian jobs.

Published

on

Joe Biden’s announcement that he plans on a “transition away” from the use of fossil fuels as an energy source may not go over smoothly with the people of Pennsylvania- a state that has scored as the second largest producer of natural gas anywhere in the country.

Joe Biden admitted at the Thursday debate that he plans to “transition away from the oil industry,” citing pollution.

The United States Energy Information Administration identifies a considerable 20.0% of national natural gas production as coming from the state of Pennsylvania, making it the second biggest producer behind Texas. The state punches well above its weight in doing so, producing almost as much natural gas as Texas despite having less than half of its population.

Biden has sought to dismiss his track record of support for the banning of fracking oil extraction, employing a similar thinly veiled rhetorical trick by stating he’d only decline to allow any new fracking.

The energy industry continues to be a source of gainful, family-supporting employment for over ten million Americans. It’s not an option to “transition away” from the use of fossil fuels in the immediate future- a fact Biden tacitly admitted to after the debate suggestion, perhaps indicating that he realized the political folly of the statement.

A study from the American Petroleum Industry indicates that more than 322,000 Pennsylvanians are employed by the natural gas industry that Biden wants to transition away from.

Pennsylvania is shaping up as the most critical swing state in the election, and in nearly every plausible election night scenario the winner of the state’s 20 electoral votes secures the 270 needed to win the election.

Perhaps Joe Biden should transition away from national politics, and leave policy answers relating to carbon emissions, the environment and a strong energy industry to those more considerate of the role of the natural gas industry in Pennsylvania and around the country.
