Kanye West gets on the ballot in Oklahoma, plus more news

So since Kanye is going 3rd Party as an Independant.
I think we can talk Kanye and follow how far this goes,

as well as the Independant Party. Which there are some issues

that I've wanted to discuss for those who are registered Independants

and why we cannot vote in our own primaries yet

Kanye West is now on the presidential ballot in at least one state

He may be polling at a not-so-whopping 2 percent, but Kanye West appears to be making progress towards a real White House bid. After the rapper announced his third-party candidacy plans on Twitter and in a Forbes interview earlier this month, skeptics including Donald Trump wondered if it wasn't too late to even get on the ballot -- and it is too late in some states, but not all. On Thursday, July 16, Time reported Kanye met the requirements to get himself on the presidential ballot in Oklahoma, though it appears to be the only state where he's managed to do so ahead of the filing deadline. According to Time, a rep for 'Ye filed the rapper's paperwork and paid his $35,000 filing fee on Wednesday, making him one of three independent candidates on the ballot there. That same day, Kanye's team filed a "Statement of Organization" with the Federal Election Commission, naming a "Kanye 2020 committee" as his main campaign organization, according to TMZ. He has reportedly missed the deadline to get on the ballot in a few states, though. New York Magazine, meanwhile, reported this week that Kanye's adviser Steve Kramer told the outlet "he's out."

Kanye West kicks off 1st presidential campaign event

1 hr ago

ABC News logoKanye West kicks off 1st presidential campaign event

Kanye West will hold his first presidential campaign event in North Charleston, South Carolina, on Sunday as the state's deadline to file signatures as an independent candidate approaches.

The deadline was moved from July 15 to noon on July 20 due to a state of emergency declared amid the coronavirus pandemic. South Carolina does not allow write-in candidates on the ballot.

On Saturday, the rapper had tweeted for supporters to "please sign up to put me on the ballot in South Carolina." The state requires 10,000 signatures to be ballot-eligible.

— ye (@kanyewest) July 18, 2020

All attendees at West's North Charleston event will be asked to sign a COVID-19 liability release form, social distance and wear a mask. West will also be holding a pre-rally press event.

A source with knowledge of West's presidential bid told ABC News that the campaign is currently working in multiple states gathering signatures and describes the two-week old campaign as "maturing and growing."

According to the source, the team will be announcing several more campaign events, including one in New York.

Kanye West Breaks Down in Tears Explaining Anti-Abortion Stance at Presidential Rally: 'I Almost Killed My Daughter'

Kanye West Kanye West took the stage for his first presidential rally, where he went from being in good spirits to wiping tears from his eyes as he explained why he's against abortion.

The rally, held in Charleston, South Carolina, began just after 5 p.m. ET. Sunday evening (July 19). Locals live streamed the event, where attendees were mostly compliant with wearing masks but did not show much social distancing as they gathered closely to the stage and reacted to West's discussion.

West, with "2020" shaved on the back of his head, made his entrance just after The O'Jays' "Stairway to Heaven" played throughout the venue. He spoke loudly over the crowd, without a microphone. He instructed staff to "close the doors but keep them unlocked" to buffer outside noise.

"Moving forward we will be in rooms where the acoustics are absolutely incredible, because I will be involved next time," West promised before launching into a jumbled myriad of topics, including religion, addiction, guns and his very personal experience with the idea of abortion.

"If you guys gonna whisper, go outside and talk," West instructed, telling the crowd to raise their hands quietly if they wanted the opportunity to chime in. "We need absolute silence and absolute order."

On abortion

In his most candid moment, on the subject of abortion, West cried as he revealed: "My mom saved my life. My dad wanted to abort me. My mom saved my life. There would've been no Kanye West because my dad was too busy."

He doesn't "seem" to, he definitely does. It's sad really because he has all the money in the world to get the help and medication he needs when there are millions who do not have this luxury. His behaviour is ridiculous and the crazy thing is many people follow him like he's god or something (even though I don't believe in god). Now he's spewing shit about Harriet Tubman and abortion. The man needs to shut the fuck up and go away! The world doesn't need another idiot.

Kanye has gone off the rails. It's a shame because he was a great rapper in the mid-2000s. I hope he focuses on being the best father for his children that he can be.

Kind of reminds me of the movie Brewster's Millions. He wants people to vote for "None of the above".

It's kind of funny when you think about it. Donald Trump is running against Kanye West for the presidency. Imagine someone telling you that 10 years ago. You wouldn't believe them. What next? Stone Cold Steve Austin sneaks into the White House and beats the shit out of Trump, claiming the presidency for himself? The whole thing is lunacy. [Snip - luv4u]

Playing for team "i need help" It seems this bizarre stunt was aimed at diverting some of the black vote from Biden. Kanye and the Kardashians are Trump supporters.

.

The family should be doing more to help Kanye than letting him further make a fool of himself.

Apparently, he tweeted a series of late night tweets that are off the wall. He has serious issues and needs some help ASAP. He's comparing the movie Get Out to his real life and claims the movie was about him. rolleyes. I hope the American people do not fall for his nonsense, but hey, look who they voted for last time.

Kanye West tweets, deletes that he's considering postponing presidential run to 2024: 'Y'all want me to run?'

Kanye West posted -- and subsequently deleted -- a number of tweets early Wednesday morning, including a suggestion that he may hold off on running for president until the 2024 election.

West, who announced on July 4 that he was running in this year's election, asked Twitter followers what they thought about him continuing his campaign or waiting four more years.

KANYE WEST DELETES TWEET ABOUT DIVORCING KIM KARDASHIAN: REPORT

""#2020VISION or maybe '24 I guess all black people supposed to vote on Biden? Y'all want me to run on nah???" West said in a deleted tweet, according to Billboard.

West deleted several tweets that he posted overnight, with the most recent one currently still up simply saying, "Says the future president."

West held a campaign event in South Carolina on Sunday, where he criticized Harriet Tubman and became tearful when he spoke about his mother and abortion.

"Even if my wife wants to divorce me after this speech, she brought North into the world even when I didn't want to," he said while crying. "She stood up and she protected that child. You know who else protected a child? Forty-three years ago, who do you think protected a child?"

During another Twitter rant on Monday night, West wrote, "Kim was trying to fly to Wyoming with a doctor to lock me up like on the movie Get Out because I cried about saving my daughter's life yesterday."

Among other deleted tweets from Wednesday morning was a claim that he had been trying to divorce his wife, Kim Kardashian West. He kept tweets advertising that he has a new album coming out this Friday.

No I feel bad for the family. Apparently they have been desperately trying to get Kanye help but he won't.

I personally think that Kim married Kanye solely for the attention and financial end of it. So if she wanted attention, she's certainly got it.

Kim Kardashian West addresses Kanye West's mental health and asks for compassion

(CNN)Kim Kardashian West has shared a message about her husband Kanye West and mental health.

In an Instagram Stories post on Wednesday, Kardashian West acknowledged that West has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and said it's "incredibly complicated and painful" for many to understand.
"As many of you know, Kanye has bi-polar disorder. Anyone who has this or has a loved one in their life who does, knows how incredibly complicated and painful it is to understand,' she wrote. "I've never spoken publicly about how this has affected us at home because I am very protective of our children and Kanye's right to privacy when it comes to his health. But today, I feel like I should comment on it because off the stigma and misconceptions about mental health."

This is not going to end well, at some point, without a complete medical 180. It is sad.

I wish him well and hope he gets the help he needs, from one bipolar person to another. I can relate to not wanting to be on medication cause of not feeling creative, but it’s essential for functioning with the moods lowered and not as intense while being on them

It's what I heard. These episodes tend to coincide with new material being available. Considering the source, it would be an interesting observation.
