Two of the most powerful Black conservative voices began feuding with each other on Instagram on Father’s Day. 

Kimberly Klacik, a former Republican nominee for Maryland’s 7th Congressional District and political commentator, Candace Owens, who hosts a show on The Daily Wire, went back and forth about several topics. 

Klacik garnered national attention for her political ad called “Black Lives Don’t Matter to Democrats.” The ad showed Klacik walking through the streets of violence ravaged Baltimore and asking residents if they wanted to defund police. Klacik pleaded with voters to turn against Democrats because of the inherent flaws in their policies. 

On Sunday, Klacik said she was seeing a lot of comments asking her to address the “Candace Owens situation.” Klacik said that she has been working to get Owens elected to the U.S. House of Representative in 2022. 

Owens reportedly invited Klacik to appear on her show, Candace. While it is not entirely clear what the two are feuding about, Klacik said that she would not appear on Owens’ show because “she doesn’t normally let people profit off of a conservation with her.” 

“The show can be edited because it is streamed online,” Klacik said. “I would rather go Instagram Live with her so everybody can see the conversation in its entirety.”

Owens accused Klacik of disabling comments on the thread and not being authentic. 

“LOL to you, disabling comments on your last post,” Owens wrote. “You are such a fake and hilarious person to keep trying to denigrate the Dailywire as a “computer show.” Computer shows – meaning, digital, podcasts, youtubers, etc. – have a larger reach than cable news, which I also go onto. Again, you are doing nothing here but exposing yourself.”

Podcast Series Re-Opens the Murder Case of Michael Jordan’s Father

The podcast focuses on one of the defendants in the case, Daniel Green, who was convicted of murdering Jordan with testimony solely from Larry Demery who took a deal in exchange for identifying Green as the triggerman.

A new podcast hosted by investigative crime reporter Amanda Lamb casts doubt on the facts surrounding the murder case involving Michael Jordan’s father, James. 

The series is produced by WRAL Studios, with its parent Capitol Broadcasting Company, which co-produced the 2021 Amazon / IMDb TV Original Docu-series Moment of Truth about the Jordan case.

The podcast focuses on one of the defendants in the case, Daniel Green, who was convicted of murdering Jordan with testimony solely from Larry Demery who took a deal in exchange for identifying Green as the triggerman. 

“The podcast is the rest of the story,” said Shelly Leslie, head of streaming and podcasting for the Company and serves as Executive Producer on both projects. “The intimacy of audio allows us to take listeners deeply into the lives of all the central characters in this real-life tragedy, most importantly James Jordan and Daniel Green. Mr. Jordan was more than a celebrity’s father.” 

Episodes one and two will be released on July 22, with weekly episodes released every Thursday through Sept 16.

“My goal in this case, or any case I cover, is to seek the truth, based on facts and evidence,” said Lamb. “We’ll take people back to the scene of the crime, put them in the interrogation room, in the trial, in the echoing walls of a prison, and in the living room at home with Daniel’s mother and sister.” 

Lamb has been in touch with Green from prison, through letters, phone calls and in-person interviews, for the last 10 years. 

“The listener is the jury now, only this time they’ll have all the evidence, and they can decide who’s telling the truth,” she said. 

Follow the Truth is the first true-crime podcast from WRAL Studios & Capitol Broadcasting Company. 

You can follow the podcast on social media @Followtruthpod.

Orlando Paper Rips DeSantis for Texas Trip Amid Florida’s COVID Spike

DeSantis joined Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to visit the southern border, a hot topic issue in the country over the last few months.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis made a trip to Texas over the weekend despite the rise in coronavirus cases in his state, which led to criticism from the Orlando Sentinel’s editorial board

DeSantis joined Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to visit the southern border, a hot topic issue in the country over the last few months. Nonetheless, the newspaper rang the alarm regarding the state’s growing coronavirus cases as their leader was nowhere to be found. 

“Florida was all over the news this past weekend with one of the nation’s biggest spikes in COVID cases and hospitalizations. And where was Gov. Ron DeSantis as this health crisis resurged? Visiting hospitals? Consulting with physicians and public health experts? Huddling with his staff to brainstorm ways of persuading more Floridians to take the vaccine that would nip this pandemic in the bud?” the board asked.

“Nope. Florida’s governor was in Texas, 1,000 miles from Tallahassee, burnishing his 2024 presidential ambitions with a visit to the southern border.”

The state accounts for almost 20 percent of the country’s new COVID-19 infections. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), fifty-five percent of Florida’s population has received a dose of the coronavirus vaccine. Meanwhile, 47.8 percent are fully vaccinated.
