Should Candace Owens be blamed for the fact that Kanye West backed off from his activism for the MAGA movement? Of course not.
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.
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.
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.

Roger Stone Files Motion to Remove Judge From Controversial Case
Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison this week.
Roger Stone has filed a motion to remove the presiding judge from his controversial court case on Saturday, just days after the longtime Republican political operative was sentenced to a stringent 40-month prison term for lying to federal investigators.
Stone is seeking a new trial, and his legal team is pointing out evidence of Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s bias against their client as cause for a new judge. Jackson complimented the jury after they handed on the lengthy prison sentence on Stone for process crimes, stating that they had “served with integrity.”
There’s further reason to believe that Stone, a former adviser to President Donald Trump in the early days of his 2016 Presidential campaign, has been made a victim of deep-seated political bias during the trial, one of the few to result from Robert Mueller’s lengthy and ultimately empty Russian interference probe.
At least one juror has stepped forward to bemoan an effort by the DOJ to dial back aggressive prosecutors seeking to place Stone in prison for an even lengthier amount of time. Juror Tomeka Heart is a committed Democrat former congressional candidate. She’s posted at length on her personal social media about her personal dislike of President Trump.
It’s rather shocking that a juror with such a distinguishable political affiliation wouldn’t be passed up in a court case with direct national political implications. Stone’s lawyers mention Heart’s partisan affiliation in their court filing for a new trial and judge.
Stone currently remains free, pending his filing for a new trial.
Tucker Carlson discussed the pressing ethical lapses surrounding Stone’s conviction and sentencing during a segment on his show Thursday night.
