KKK ‘Social Visit’ Cards Left at Joe Biden Supporters’ Homes in Tennessee

Cards describing a “social visit” from the Ku Klux Klan were left at the homes of Joe Biden supporters in Tennessee, intimidating local residents.

Breana Green, of Shelbyville, described how she noticed that a sign showing support for Biden in her neighbor’s yard had been disturbed.

Speaking to WSMV, Green said the yard was littered with a number of “business cards” reportedly belonging to the KKK.

Green believed the cards were left in response to the Biden-Harris yard sign, which also had tire marks indicating it had been run over.

“It’s scary knowing that just supporting a presidential candidate can incite this kind of vandalism,” Green said.

“There is some anxiety that people could be targeted in my family,” she added.

“People in the community could be targeted as well. I just don’t think this should be something that we’re dealing with in 2020.”

Speaking to WPLB,

Saskatchewan Party candidate resigns following concerns over social media activity related to COVID-19, QAnon conspiracy theories

REGINA—The Saskatchewan Party says a candidate has resigned over social media posts.

Party communications director Jim Billington said in a statement Saturday afternoon that “the content and views” Saskatoon Eastview candidate Daryl Cooper “interacted with on social media” were “concerning.”

Billington also said they were “not representative of the values of the Saskatchewan Party,” its leader or its members.

Party Leader Scott Moe told a campaign stop in Prince Albert Saturday morning they were made aware of the posts Friday and were looking at the situation closely, although Moe said he wasn’t familiar with the nature of the content.

Cooper’s official Saskatchewan Party Twitter and Facebook accounts have now been deleted, and he declined comment when reached on Saturday.

PressProgress reported Friday that Cooper’s social media accounts had expressed support online for conspiracy theories about the origin of COVID-19 and that his account clicked “like” on posts that support QAnon

Social Distance In Style In This Luxury Former Cold War Bunker In London

Do unusual homes require a different kind of sales marketing? The owner of this converted Cold War bunker in northwest London clearly thinks so.

The sales particulars for this 10,000-square-foot concrete house describes it as a “pandemic refuge”, and says that it anticipates buyers from the following categories: “a secretive businessman, celebrity avoiding paparazzi, young or old playboy, trophy hoarder, car collector, original thinker, eccentric intellectual.”

The owner, rather than the selling agent, came up with the quirky description, according to a spokesperson for FW Gapp, the estate agency selling the grade II listed property, which is on sale for $12.9 million and lies in the suburb of Mill Hill.

The Cold War relic, once part of

Current Social Capital Hedosophia Holdings Corp II Price Values Opendoor Like A High Growth SaaS Company (NYSE:IPOB)

Surge in IPOB Price Due to Opendoor Announcement

Over the last month, shares of Social Capital Hedosophia Holdings Corp II (IPOB) have risen ~70%, in large part due to the announcement that IPOB will be used to bring Opendoor public. I was an early shareholder of IPOB with the overall thesis that given Chamath Palihapitiya’s impressive track record, there was a high likelihood that he would succeed in putting together a deal that would drive up the value of IPOB. That thesis has played out as expected leaving me with another question: now that the original thesis has played out, are the shares still worth holding?

ChartData by YCharts

There is already a lot of good research on the fundamentals of Opendoor’s business, so I will not repeat those details in this article. In particular, I recommend this Seeking Alpha article Knock Knock. Who’s There? Opendoor. Chamath Just SPAC’d The

Nikita Kucherov of the Tampa Bay Lightning skates with the Stanley Cup on Monday following the series-winning victory over the Dallas Stars.

The Tampa Bay Lightning lifted the Stanley Cup on Monday night, marking the end of a once-improbable NHL Bubble experiment.

The 2-0 victory over the Dallas Stars in Game 6 capped off the Lightning’s comeback season after being swept in the first round last year.

Captain Steven Stamkos was the first to lift the cup for the Bolts, and defenceman Victor Hedman was awarded the Conn Smythe trophy, recognized as the finals MVP.

It was a rewarding conclusion to a strange season for many hockey fans. Here’s the some of the best reaction from social media:

A tale of two Britains: homes market boom deepens social divide

LONDON (Reuters) – Claire Tomlinson dreams of buying a three-bedroom house in the leafy northern English town of Sandbach but now finds herself priced out of the market, a story that is becoming all too familiar in Britain in the pandemic era.

The 28-year-old e-commerce worker and her partner were saving diligently while renting in Sandbach so they could buy their own home this year, an ambition that has been thwarted by forces beyond their control.

A post-lockdown stampede for bigger houses outside of urban areas in the new work-from-home age has sparked a fresh boom in Britain’s housing market – especially in areas like Sandbach, a small country town surrounded by the rolling Cheshire Plains.

While this dash for the countryside is not a phenomenon unique to Britain, its decision

Social media confounded by bizarre interior of Florida condo for sale: ‘Dear God’

A two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo in Lake Worth, Florida, is on sale for just $100,000 — but it requires a very, very specific buyer.

Why? Well, the walls of the “social media-worthy” condo are covered almost entirely in empty cans of Budweiser.

Whoever the current owner and seller of this condo is clearly has a thing for the American-style pale lager. Every single room, save for one ordinary bathroom, is decorated floor-to-ceiling with cans of Budweiser.

Though it’s impossible to ignore the beer cans everywhere, whoever the listing agent is for the condo did their best to make them sound appealing rather than alarmingly confusing.

“Entering the spacious 2BR/2BA corner-unit condo, you immediately reminisce of long road trips and the inevitable belting out of the beloved song, ’99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall!’” the listing says. “Budweiser’s biggest fan meticulously adorned the walls and ceilings with Budweiser beer

‘How contractor stalled Social Investment Funds’ payment in Bayelsa, A-Ibom, Abia, Zamfara’

By Samuel Oyadongha & Emem Idio

THE Federal Government’s Social Investment Programme in Bayelsa State has said that issues bothering on financial mismanagement were responsible for the delay in the payment to beneficiaries of the Conditional Cash Transfer programme in Bayelsa, Akwa Ibom, Abia and Zamfara states before and during the period of the coronavirus lockdown.

Head of Unit of the programme in Bayelsa State, Mrs Tonbara Kenigbolo, stated this during a town hall meeting between staff of the programme and beneficiaries organised by Bayelsa State Non-Governmental Organisation Forum, BANGOF, in partnership with Africa Network for Environmental and Economic Justice, ANEEJ, in Yengaoa.

According to Mrs Kenigbolo, a payment provider simply identified as Mr Henry, owner of Data Mining Firm, was procured by the Federal Government in July 2019 to effect payment to beneficiaries of the programme in the four states. He visited Bayelsa once to discuss modalities for payment
