Of all the things that the occasionally interesting Kanye West has said over the course of the past week, the one that can’t ever be called sociopathic or pathological is what he said about George Floyd, patron saint of Hennepin County.

But of course, the historical revisionism of Floyd’s death is an enduring priority of the Democrat Party. They can’t justify their political violence without it. So that West more or less told the truth about Floyd has the corrupted national media (a.k.a. the Democrat Party) performing emergency clean-up for their cause.

Like almost everything West says in interviews, his remarks on Floyd on a show last weekend weren’t delivered with much precision. “They hit him with the fentanyl,” he said. “If you look, the guy’s knee wasn’t even on his neck like that. When he said ‘mama,’ mama is his girlfriend. They said he screamed for his mama. Mama was his girlfriend.”

The bulk of that is demonstrably true, but Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson falsely claimed this week — lie! lie! lie! — that, “None of that is true.”

A separate news article in the same paper said Kanye had made “false claims about the Black man’s killing at the hands of Minneapolis police.”

An NBC News report also referred to West’s “false claims” related to Floyd.

Let’s take them one by one.

It’s a fact that Floyd had lethal levels of fentanyl in his blood. The medical examiner’s report said at the time of his death, there were 11 nanograms of the drug per milliliter. That report noted that “severe respiratory depression” — trouble with breathing — is a common symptom of fentanyl toxicity, and that fatal blood levels of the drug have been recorded at as low as 3 nanograms per milliliter. Floyd had nearly four times that.

Also present in his system were methamphetamine, other opiates, and morphine, which the report said, have the effect of “respiratory depression” as well.

West’s assertion that Derek Chauvin’s knee “wasn’t even on his neck like that,” is likely a reference to a line of defense put forward by Chauvin’s legal team. At trial, defense attorney Eric Nelson zoomed in on video from Floyd’s run-in with the police. Nelson suggested that the images showed Floyd’s neck was, at least for some period of time, not in direct contact with Chauvin’s knee, and that when it was, the applied pressure was justifiable for the circumstances. The jury didn’t buy the defense, but the medical examiner’s report said there were no injuries to Floyd’s neck nor to the cartilage of his larynx. There was no bleeding or bruising on his neck. There were, in fact, no injuries to any of his organs at all.

That Floyd referred to his girlfriend as “mama” is also just a fact. And we know that because his girlfriend and drug buddy, Courteney Ross, said so in court. I know that it’s more romantic and thus useful for the media to claim Floyd used his final gasps to call for his mother, but she died in 2018, two years before the incident.

What West didn’t say in the interview was that Floyd also had “severe” heart disease, with some of his arteries blocked by up to 90 percent. His heart was enlarged, and he suffered a history of hypertension. And that leads us to why the medical examiner declared Floyd to have died of “cardiopulmonary arrest,” triggered by the stress of contact with the police. And it’s no small point that the contact was made after the 6’4”, 223 lb. Floyd, hopped up on drugs, attempted to purchase a pack of cigarettes with a counterfeit bill. When police showed up, he was panicked, delusional, and either unable or unwilling to cooperate with police. Maybe it was both.

In the end, the medical examiner, Dr. Andrew Baker, did determine Floyd’s death to formally be a “homicide,” though the term in his profession simply means another person was a factor. At trial, Baker said, “In my opinion, the law enforcement subdual, restraint, and the neck compression was just more than Mr. Floyd could take, by virtue of those heart conditions.” In other words, Floyd would have survived the incident if not for his severely compromised heart.

Guess who had no clue that this giant man had a sick and fragile heart before that fateful day? Precisely no one, least of all the police who were tasked with subduing his massive frame in his erratic condition.

Kanye West made no false claims against our lord and savior George Floyd. He told the truth, as sad as it may be.

Prominent bank abruptly cancels Kanye West, gives him just weeks to move accounts to another bank

JPMorgan Chase informed Kanye West this week that the bank is canceling its relationship with his companies and told him to find a new bank. Candace Owens, a friend of West, posted to Twitter late Tuesday an email that West received from JPMorgan Chase. The message said the bank is canceling West’s services by Nov. 21.

The email said, in part:

We are sending this letter to confirm our recent discussion with [redacted] that JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A (the “Bank”) has decided to end its banking relationship with Yeezy, LLC and its affiliated entities (collectively, the “Company”). To provide the Company with sufficient time to transition to another financial institution, we will continue to maintain the accounts (attached as Exhibit A), including all related products and services, until November 21, 2022.

To avoid any transaction delays, we suggest that you stop processing Company transactions and/or using any products associated with the accounts five business days before the scheduled closure date set forth above. After that date, the Bank will close any open accounts, and after deduction of any permissible service charges and pending transactions, remit all remaining funds in the form of a check delivered to the Company at the address of record.

The message, however, does not disclose why JPMorgan Chase chose to end its relationship with West and his companies.

TheBlaze reached out to JPMorgan Chase, but the bank declined to comment. However, the New York Times reported Thursday that it confirmed JPMorgan Chase is ending its banking services with West.

The development comes as West faces backlash for a recent wave of anti-Semitic comments. At one point, his massively popular Twitter and Instagram accounts were restricted for posting controversial remarks.

Meanwhile, West has been openly critical of JPMorgan Chase recently, rebuking “executives Bill Grous at JPMorgan’s wealth management business, investment banking Vice Chair Jing Ulrich and Chief Executive Officer Jamie Dimon,” Bloomberg reported last month.

“I feel like there’s a lot of controlling and handling to suppress my ability to affect the American economy and industry,” West told Bloomberg of the bank.

Jason Whitlock Op-ed: Kanye West remains dangerous, disgusting, and harmful to demonic leftists


OP-ED, JASON WHITLOCK | October 07, 2022

Kanye West is not as confusing as he often sounds. His outlook on life stems from a defined set of values spelled out in the Bible. His actions and words often conflict with his outlook. He’s normal. Every human being struggles to align their values and deeds. The difference between West and most human beings is the transparency of his failures.

Yesterday, West sat down for an interview with Fox News host Tucker Carlson. The 45-year-old rapper, fashion designer, and provocateur was his usual mix of brilliance, confusion, contradiction, and oddity. When asked how people respond to a baby ultrasound lanyard he wears, West proclaimed his faith.

“I don’t care about people’s responses,” he said. “I care about the fact that there’s more black babies being aborted than born in New York City at this point, that 50 percent of black death in America is abortion. So I really don’t care about people’s responses. I perform for an audience of one, and that’s God.”

It was a brilliant and courageous answer, especially for a Hollywood celebrity. We’ve come to expect that from West.

Earlier this week, at a fashion show in Paris, West and gal pal Candace Owens donned T-shirts emblazoned with the words “White Lives Matter.” The shirts mocked the Black Lives Matter movement. Via Instagram, Kanye called BLM a “scam.” Owens has a documentary set to release in five days – “The Greatest Lie Ever Told” – that is expected to further expose BLM’s financial malfeasance and LGBTQ agenda.

Kanye is drumming up attention for Owens’ takedown of BLM. The progressive establishment, the globalists using race to divide, conquer, and queer America, are frustrated by their inability to control “Kunta Kinte” West. Adidas is threatening to dissolve its long-standing partnership with West. Corporate media outlets dispatched their legion of race police to publicly flog West for affirming the value of white life. Rolling Stone complained that the shirts legitimized extremism. A potpourri of black intellectuals deemed the shirts disgusting, harmful, and dangerous.

West did not back away from the controversy in his conversation with Carlson. He said he acted on a “gut instinct.” He then oddly analogized the stunt to disgraced Olympic figure skater Tonya Harding.

That’s classic Kanye West. He contradicts. He produces an album titled “Jesus Is King” and then collaborates with Lil Nas X on the song and video “Industry Baby,” which depicts gay prison sex.

West, like most of us, serves God and the world. The pull of the world is much stronger for West. He’s one of the world’s biggest celebrities. The success of his music and fashion depend on public opinion and popularity. He succumbs to those pressures.

Fame is an intoxicating and destructive drug. Kanye is battling his addiction to it with biblical faith. I respect the sincerity of his fight. He truly values family and being a good father. He wants to see black Americans improve our plight. He believes in the power of truth.

His comments related to abortion and the normalization of obesity – “it’s actually clinically unhealthy. And for people to promote that, it’s demonic” – reveal a deeper understanding of the cultural rot destroying America.

We’re in a battle of good vs. evil. Kanye is one of the good guys. He’s trying to be on the right side of God rather than the history left-wing atheists plan to write.

Kanye West: Democrats Spent Years Pushing Abortion and Welfare on Black Americans

Rap superstar Kanye West slammed the Democratic Party for pushing abortion and dependence on welfare on black Americans, explaining that many people have become “brainwashed” by the party’s destructive ideas.

In a wide-ranging interview with radio host Big Boy to promote his album “Jesus Is King,” West opened up about his disdain for Democratic Party policies imposed on black people over decades.

“Bro, we brainwashed out here bro,” West said. “C’mon man, this is a free man talking. Democrats had us voting Democrats on food stamps for years bro.”

“What’s your talking about?” the Grammy-winner continued. “Guns in the ’80s, taking the fathers out the homes, plan B, lowering our votes, making us unborn our children. Thou shall not kill.”

In the same interview, West also argued it was racist to assume that black people must vote Democrat because of their skin color.

“I can’t tell y’all how to feel, but what I can tell you honestly is how I feel,” the “Jesus Walks” crooner said. “And when I sat there seven years and six years into the Obama administration, when I was sitting out there at the Met Ball, when I was sitting in front of white people and they thought ‘I wouldn’t have thought you’d like Trump because of the racism.’”

“So you mean to tell me I make every decision based off my color?  he continued “The most racist thing a person could tell me is that I’m supposed to choose something based on my race.”

The 41-year-old rapper also spoke in detail about his becoming a Born Again Christian, defending religious conservative values and argued that those who push political correctness are the same people who want to destroy Christianity altogether.

“I’ve been canceled before. That was canceled culture. Who told you that my career would be over? The same people that are telling you that you can’t have a right to say who you will vote for,”West said. “Those people will be soon to take Jesus out of school. Those people will be soon to remove Jesus, period, from America, which is the Bible Belt. Those people will be so mad. Come on man.”

TRIGGERED TMZ Reporter BEGS Kanye To Take OFF His MAGA Hat


Posted by https://freedomclash.com/triggered-tmz-reporter-begs-kanye-to-take-off-his-maga-hat/ | October 29, 2019

Musician, Kanye West’s MAGA is making the News, yet again. This time a triggered reporter couldn’t handle Kanye’s choice to support the President during an interview. In true liberal fashion, the ridiculous interviewer turned the entire interview political but Kanye never budged.

During an interview with TMZ on Tuesday, host Harvey Levin begged Kanye West to take off his “Make America Great Again” hat to make him and others “feel better.” Kanye did not oblige, but instead sang the praises of the First Amendment and stressed that he will not be bullied.

“I would love it, Kanye, if you would not wear that hat. It would make me and a lot of other people feel better,” said Levin. “In fact, why don’t we say, ‘Please take off the hat, Kanye!’ How’s that?”

“It’s not good,” answered the artist, who recently told a Saturday Night Live audience that he was “bullied” for wearing his Trump “MAGA” hat.

Levin backed off, agreeing that Kanye has a “right” to wear the hat, though he doesn’t like what it “stands for.”

“Exactly! First Amendment, baby! First Amendment! First Amendment,” yelled Kanye, before arguing with Levin over what the hat stands for.

“Is it fair to say your hat doesn’t represent your support of Donald Trump?” he asked.

“I already told you what this hat represents to me,” he said, pointing at the “MAGA” atop his head. “This represents, y’all can’t bully me. … You can’t tell me what to do.”

As Written By The Daily Wire:

After a long pause, Kanye replied, “I am American, and I support and give my ideas and support and brilliance to whoever ends up in office,” adding, “That’s my stance, as an American. I support our president, bottom line, no matter who they are. As an American, I support our president.”

Police Chief Calls Out Kanye West for Comparing Rapping to War or Police Work


http://eaglerising.com/3599/police-chief-calls-kanye-west-comparing-rapping-war-police-work/#uUWo3vyS1U5oav7O.99

By / 16 December  2013

A popular police chief from Ohio penned a scathing online note to famous  rapper Kanye West. Police Chief David Oliver, head of the Brimfield, Ohio police  department has become an internet phenomenon. In fact, Brimfield Police  Department has the 2nd most followers on Facebook of any of America’s police  departments (they trail only the NYPD). His latest Facebook post has brought him  his most notoriety yet…

Here it is:

Dear Kanye West,

 I am honored to be writing such an important star. I am a mere  Internet sensation. I’m not sure I am worthy to address you, although the  Huffington Post did say I was “Humorous and Insanely Popular.” I don’t pay much  attention to those things. Anyway, please excuse my interference in your life  for a quick second.

I read your interview and also watched it on video. You said: “I’m just  giving of my body on the stage and putting my life at risk, literally.….and I  think about it. I think about my family and I’m like, wow, this is like being a  police officer or something, in war or something.”

I want to thank you for putting your life on the line for all of us every  day. I know that being a rapper is tough work. I have tried to rap, and it is  very difficult to keep up with the pulse of the rhyme flow…although when Ice Ice  Baby comes on the radio, I can usually keep up with ol’ Vanilla. Anywho, your  job is just some very dangerous work. Most people don’t consider… if you rap  really fast, without a chance to inhale, you could pass out and hit your  head.

nomopesThat last paragraph was covered in sarcasm. I’m  letting you know, just so you do not think I agree with your very ignorant  assessment of your career (or any other performer)as it relates to a person in  the military or a police officer’s service. You sir, are as misguided as they  come. I do have a suggestion for you. Since you are accustomed to danger, from  your life as an international rapper, I am strongly encouraging you immediately  abandon you career as a super star and join the military. After joining, I would  like you to volunteer to be deployed in Afghanistan or one of the numerous other  forward locations where our men an women are currently serving. When the Taliban  starts shooting at you, perhaps you could stand up and let the words flow. It  could be something like “I’m Kanye West, wearing a flak vest.” I’m sure they  would just drop weapons and surrender. You could quite possibly end all wars,  just from the enemy being star-struck.

Your line of thinking is part of the problem in the world today….which  include entertainers thinking they are something more than just entertainers. I  know it is supply and demand and the demand for your services is high. I get  economics. What I do not get is you EVER comparing what you do for a living to  our heroic military members, who are always in harm’s way… and my brother and  sister police officers who have to go to work carrying weapons and wearing a  bullet-proof vest to protect themselves.

Check yourself, before you wreck yourself….Chief Oliver.

 Bam!

Way to go, Chief Oliver. I think everyone can agree that we’re tired of  people in popular culture whether they be rappers, musicians, actors or athletes  comparing their work with war or other violence. Your job may be hard, but it’s  not battle. You aren’t risking your life. You aren’t sacrificing your youth to  bring safety and peace to your nation. You aren’t ever in any danger – so stop  pretending what you do is life and death, because it isn’t.

Thanks, Chief Oliver, for putting this all into perspective for us.
