Kayne West in The White House, Washington DC, USA last year
Further to his Presidential bid….
….Rapper Kayne West reveals to Forbes:
That he’s running for president in 2020 under a new banner—the Birthday Party—with guidance from Elon Musk and an obscure vice presidential candidate he’s already chosen. “Like anything I’ve ever done in my life,” says West, “I’m doing to win.”
That he no longer supports President Trump. “I am taking the red hat off, with this interview.”
That he’s ok with siphoning off Black votes from the Democratic nominee, thus helping Trump. “I’m not denying it, I just told you. To say that the Black vote is Democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy.”
That he’s never voted in his life.
That he was sick with Covid-19 in February.
That he’s suspicious of a coronavirus vaccine, terming vaccines “the mark of the beast.”
That he believes “Planned Parenthoods have been placed inside cities by white supremacists to do the Devil’s work.”
Non profit US publishing house McSweeneys has been compiling a detailed timeline of Donald Trump’s most egregious pronouncements and actions. 736 items so far, and counting. To wit:
We called this list a collection of Trump’s cruelties, collusions, and crimes, and it felt urgent then to track them, to ensure these horrors — happening almost daily — would not be forgotten. This election year, amid a harrowing global health, civil rights, humanitarian, and economic crisis, we know it’s never been more critical to note these horrors, to remember them, and to do all in our power to reverse them. This list will be updated between now and the November 2020 Presidential election.
Poo-based, Trump-related ‘Projection Bomb’ visual caper carried out by Twitter Action Ireland, ‘a group of artists and activists’ policing the Twittersphere.
We have carried out this action at Twitter’s EMEA headquarters Dublin in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter protests in the United States and across the world.
We are embarrassed and angry that Twitter’s worldwide dissemination of Donald Trump’s racist views continues to be funded by the Irish state by way of the disreputable Irish tax avoidance schemes…
We call on the Irish employees of Twitter to take action in support of our demands. If you no longer want to work in a environment that facilitates Trump’s racism please make your feelings known to Twitter management.
…Together we have the power to bring about change. Let’s make Twitter Dump Racist Trump.”
Following the United States Justice Department decision to drop the criminal case against US President Donald Trump’s first national security adviser, Michael Flynn.…
CBS News reporter Catherine Herridge: “The last thing most Americans remember about General Flynn is that he was fired. And that he admitted lying to the FBI. Does the fact remain that he lied?”
US Attorney General William Barr: “Well, you know, people sometimes plead to things that turn out not to be crimes. … And the Department of Justice is not persuaded that this was material to any legitimate counterintelligence investigation. So it was not a crime.”
Herridge: “When a special counsel report was released last year, you were accused by critics of putting your thumb on the scale in the president’s favor. Are you doing the president’s bidding in General Flynn’s case?”
Barr: “No, I’m doing the law’s bidding. I’m doing my duty under the law, as I see it.”
Herridge: “You know you’re going to take a lot of incoming … for this decision. Are you prepared for that?”
Barr: “Yea, I’m prepared for that. I also think it’s sad that nowadays these partisan feelings are so strong that people have lost any sense of justice.”
Herridge: “What should Americans take away from your actions in the Flynn case today?”
Barr: “I was concerned people were feeling there were two standards of justice in this country. … I wanted to make sure that we restore confidence in the system. There’s only one standard of justice.”
In light of the attack from the Invisible Enemy, as well as the need to protect the jobs of our GREAT American Citizens, I will be signing an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States!
The move effectively achieves a long-term Trump policy goal to curb immigration, making use of the health and economic crisis that has swept the country as a result of the pandemic to do so.
The decision drew swift condemnation from some Democrats, who accused the president of creating a distraction from what they view as a slow and faulty response to the coronavirus.
Trump said he was taking the action to protect the U.S. workforce. Millions of Americans are suffering unemployment after companies shed employees amid nationwide lockdowns to stop the contagion.
“In light of the attack from the Invisible Enemy, as well as the need to protect the jobs of our GREAT American Citizens, I will be signing an Executive Order to temporarily suspend immigration into the United States,” Trump said in a tweet.
The White House declined to offer further details about the reasoning behind the decision, its timing, or its legal basis.

US President Donald Trump at yesterday’s White House Covid-19 press briefing
According to Mr Trump, WHO prevented transparency over the outbreak and the United States – the UN body’s biggest funder which provided $400 million last year – will now “discuss what to do with all that money that goes to the WHO.”
He said that the WHO had not sent experts into China quickly enough when the outbreak first emerged and took the assurances from that country’s leaders “at face value”.
Mr Trump said had the WHO “done its job” by getting experts into China swiftly then “the outbreak could have been contained at its sources with very little death”. The US president suggested thousands of lives could have been saved by such action.
