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,

Schroders hopeful for sustainability improvements with Biden victory

The recent rollbacks could potentially result in US companies laxing on environmental practices.

Against the backdrop of Covid-19 and the US’ rollback of environmental regulation, investment in environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) remains a wise choice, writes Sarah Brattan Hughes, Head of Sustainability, North America, Schroders.

“We have seen sustainable investing outperform going into the Covid-19 crisis, and throughout the crisis. The resilience of results supports our view that sustainable investing is a proxy for quality.”

The recent rollbacks could potentially result in US companies laxing on environmental practices. However, the focus on sustainability in other parts of the world will help keep up the sustainability standards globally, Hughes adds. 

“For example, the European Union has embarked on a sustainable finance plan and has a strong ambition to be a global leader of sustainable investing. It is a matter of time before ESG integration becomes a hygiene factor in

At least 3 Idaho homes with Biden signs had them stolen

COEUR D’ALENE, Idaho (AP) — At least three residents in Coeur d’Alene reported that their signs supporting presidential candidate Joe Biden were stolen and someone placed Confederate flags and conservative manifestos in their yards, the Coeur d’Alene Press reported.

Security footage cameras at one residence caught a person in a hooded coat walk onto a porch, tear down the Biden sign and leave with it. Another security camera in the neighborhood caught a person placing a Confederate flag and letter in front of a house. Both cameras recorded the footage around 3:45 a.m. on Thursday.

The two-page manifestos that accompanied the Confederate flags referred to Democrats as hypocrites for their stances on systemic racism. The letter writer cites, for example, that Biden had eulogized Democratic Sen. Robert Byrd from West Virginia, who was a member and organizer for the Ku Klux Klan in the 1940s and ’50s.

Byrd later renounced

Trump accuses Chris Wallace of siding with Joe Biden in first debate

President Trump in his first tweet following Tuesday’s first presidential debate accused moderator Chris Wallace of siding with his Democratic challenger, Joe Biden.

The wordless tweet simply features an image of Trump on the left opposed by Wallace and Biden together on the right, in the style of an old arcade game’s character-select screen — down to the abbreviation “VS” in the font of the “Street Fighter” series.

Throughout the chaotic first debate at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Fox News host Wallace repeatedly chastised both candidates — but particularly Trump — for interrupting him and each other.

Each candidate was guilty many times over of cutting off his opponent mid-sentence, including during what were supposed to be the two uninterrupted minutes to which they were entitled at the start of a new segment.

“You’re debating him [Biden], not me,” Wallace cracked

The Daily 202: Trump’s $750 tax bill helps Biden sharpen pitch to working-class Whites who defected to GOP in 2016

“We’re picking up an awful lot of the folks who used to be Democrats. They’re coming back home,” Biden told a small group of reporters. “They know they’ve been screwed by Trump, but also they’re not sure that there’s the old Democratic Party back looking at them, listening to them, and so I think it’s important.”

Biden made these comments at John Murtha Airport. Murtha, very much a creature of that “old Democratic Party,” represented Johnstown in Congress from 1974 until his death in 2010. The area’s realignment toward the GOP has accelerated during the intervening decade.

In 2016, Trump carried Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan by less than one percentage point each. All three states had voted for every Democratic presidential nominee in the previous six elections, including the two in which Biden was the vice-presidential nominee, before flipping to Trump. A key factor was that the president really ran

Trump Mocks Biden Appearance, Mask Use Ahead Of First Debate 


President Trump mocked Democratic nominee Joe Biden’s appearance and use of a face mask on Tuesday as the first presidential debate draws nearer. “He feels good about the mask, and that’s OK. Whatever makes you feel good,” Trump said at a campaign rally in Pittsburgh. “Honestly, why the hell did he spend all that money on the plastic surgery if he’s going to cover it up with a mask?” (Moreno, 9/22)
