Anonymous carries out its threat, releases identities of alleged Ku Klux Klan members

Published

on

Members of the hacker group Anonymous released what they called a list of Ku Klux Klan members and sympathizers on Thursday.

The document, uploaded on Pastebin, contains hundreds of names and aliases. Among them is Frazier Glenn Miller, the white supremacist who killed three people at a Jewish community center in Kansas City.

The release came three days after the group was mistakenly credited with posting a separate list containing the names of several current lawmakers, like Sens. Dan Coats (R-IN), John Cornyn (R-TX), John Hardy Isakson (R-GA), and Thom Tillis (R-NC). None of them were named in the document posted on Thursday.

Similarly, none of the mayors identified in the prior release from a non-Anonymous Twitter account — Paul Fraim of Norfolk, Virginia; Jim Gray of Lexington, Kentucky; Kent Guinn of Ocala, Florida; Tom Henry of Fort Wayne, Indiana; and Madeline Rogero of Knoxville, Tennessee — appeared in Thursday’s document, which can be seen below.

Update, 5:15 p.m. EST: The #OpKKK Twitter feed connected to Thursday’s document stated that several names were taken off the list “for further investigation.”

“We would rather have a smaller, accurate list that we are comfortable with,” the group stated.

Georgia GOP governor orders several beaches to reopen days after acknowledging he’s woefully uneducated on coronavirus spread

Published

on

The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported today that Kemp is reopening Tybee Island and other beaches along the Georgia coast.

Local officials in several of Georgia’s coastal communities reacted with fury on Saturday after Gov. Brian Kemp’s shelter-in-place order simultaneously reopened several of the state’s most popular beaches.

The stupidity and lack of regard of human life on display in Republican-run states is beyond criminal and inhumane. In fact, there are no words to describe this. Because the longer these so-called “leaders” make decisions that are in the best interests of, I don’t know who, the longer it will take to come out of this pandemic that is claiming so many thousands of lives.

Health care insurers expected to jack up premiums as much as 40 percent to recoup coronavirus losses

Published

Private health insurers are expected to raise premiums by as much as 40% to recoup the costs of coronavirus testing and treatment, according to a new analysis from Covered California, the state's health care marketplace.

This article first appeared in Salon.

Though it remains unclear how much the coronavirus crisis will ultimately cost in health care expenditures, insurers will be submitting their 2021 rates to state regulators next month. Analyzing a wide range of models, Covered California expects that this year's care associated with the virus will cost between $34 billion and $251 billion, or between 2% of premiums and 21% of premiums. The analysis estimates that insurers would price the costs at double the rate into their 2021 premiums, projecting increases that range from as little as 4% to more than 40% for the 170 million workers and individuals who have private plans.
