3 Cannabis Stocks to Buy for a Potentially Huge ‘Blue Wave’

Cannabis stocks have been an utter disappointment, Luke says. But the worldwide boom in cannabis stocks that we were supposed to see in 2018 could actually start in November 2020. Here’s why:

The markets are betting on a Biden win. And his VP, Kamala Harris, has already telegraphed that she would federally decriminalize cannabis should her and Biden take the White House.

Once that happens, get ready for these three cannabis stocks to boom!

Trump Tweets Conspiracy Theory About Deleted Votes

In a tweet, President Donald Trump on Nov. 12 pushed the baseless theory that voting systems deleted millions of votes for him and switched thousands of votes cast for him to his Democratic rival, President-elect Joe Biden.

The Trump wing just keeps sinking deeper into conspiracy theories

Did you know that Joe Biden is probably going to resign as president sometime in the next month? Maybe, specifically, on August 13? While that’s totally ridiculous — Biden isn’t resigning and, in fact, all signs point to him running for a second term in 2024 — talk of Biden resigning has taken off among some of former President Donald Trump’s most prominent supporters of late.

Here’s MyPillow founder Mike Lindell in an interview Monday with none other than Steve Bannon:

Kings of Cannabis

You might not know who Arjan Roskam is, but you’ve probably smoked his weed. Arjan’s been breeding some of the most famous marijuana strains in the world—like White Widow, Super Silver Haze, and many others—for over 20 years.

In 1992 he opened his first coffee shop in Amsterdam and has since crafted his marijuana-breeding skills into a market-savvy empire known as Green House Seed Company, which rakes in millions of dollars a year.

He’s won 38 Cannabis Cups and has dubbed himself the King of Cannabis.

VICE joins Arjan and his crew of strain hunters in Colombia to look for three of the country’s rarest types of weed, strains that have remained genetically pure for decades. In grower’s terms, these are called landraces. We trudge up mountains and crisscross military checkpoints in the country’s still-violent south, and then head north to the breathtaking Caribbean coast. As the dominoes of criminalization fall throughout the world, Arjan is positioned to be at the forefront of the legitimate international seed trade.

Timeline of National Guard Deployment to Capitol

On the day of the Capitol riot on Jan. 6, the first National Guard members arrived to assist at about 5:40 p.m. By then, most of the violence had subsided.

In the critical minutes before rioters had breached the Capitol building around 2 p.m., the chief of the U.S. Capitol Police force and the mayor of Washington, D.C., put out urgent requests for guard backup. But it took more than an hour to get formal approval for their deployment, and then nearly three more hours for the first guard reinforcements to arrive.

The D.C. National Guard reports to the president.

In a recorded video the following day, President Donald Trump claimed that he “immediately deployed the National Guard and federal law enforcement to secure the building and expel the intruders.” But Trump’s claim that he acted quickly is contradicted by news reports citing unnamed sources who say the president initially resisted efforts to bring in the National Guard at the outset of the Capitol riot.

More Voter Fraud Misinformation from Trump

President Trump wrongly claims that “58,000 non-citizens voted in Texas.” That’s based on the state’s efforts to match driver’s license and state ID card applications from noncitizens to voter registration rolls. But none of those on the lists have been confirmed as noncitizen voters.

Trump finishes with worst first term approval rating ever

Poll of the week: A new Quinnipiac University poll finds that President Donald Trump’s approval rating stands at 33%, while his disapproval is at 60%.

An average of recent polls finds Trump with a 38% approval rating and 59% disapproval rating.

Edwards-Helaire, C. – KC (RB)

2021 fantasy player outlook for Clyde Edwards-Helaire, RB, Kansas City Chiefs (6/23) Advice: After sky-high expectations in 2020, Clyde Edwards-Helaire returns as a post-hype breakout candidate with top-20 appeal in 2021. He actually started off his rookie season with some good numbers, averaging 11.7 non-PPR/15.1 PPR points per game in his first six. Then the Chiefs acquired Le’Veon Bell … and gave some work to fellow back Darrel Williams … and then Edwards-Helaire got hurt. No wonder his playing time, touches and Fantasy totals shriveled. So why trust him now? Despite Williams sticking around and the Chiefs adding long-time pass-down specialist Jerick McKinnon, Edwards-Helaire is still considered Kansas City’s best back. It wouldn’t be surprising to see him fall into 15 touches per week, and it would be most excellent if he could pick up the short-yardage/goal-line role he barely had last year. A much-improved offensive line and a fairly good schedule also helps. Edwards-Helaire is worth the late second-round price tag. (CBSSports.com)

Claim of Michigan Postal Fraud Is Moot

A video from a right-wing activist suggests that U.S. Postal Service employees backdated ballots in Michigan. The claim is unproven, but, even if true, no ballots in the state are accepted after Nov. 3, regardless of the postmark.

Fantasy football mock draft: 10-team, PPR

The NFL draft and free agency are behind us, coaching staffs and rosters are set, and training camp is just a couple of months away. That means it’s time for fantasy football fanatics to start gearing up for the 2021 campaign!

With that in mind, we gathered our fantasy football experts to kick off the season with our first mock draft, a 10-team PPR format. For those new to fantasy, that means every time one of your players catches a pass, he earns one extra fantasy point.

Projecting the NFL’s top 10 offenses in 2021: Buccaneers or Chiefs at No. 1?

The bulk of NFL roster reconstruction is behind us. The schedule is out. Yes, kickoff’s still four months away, but it’s high time for 2021 season forecasting. With that in mind, I wanted to explore the league’s top offenses via projected win share.
Remember, win share measures each player, position group and side of the ball’s ability to earn/prevent first downs, points and touchdowns. All rosters used to simulate the season in this exercise are the forecasted 53 as of May 18.
Alright, enough dilly-dally — let’s get to it! Here is the countdown of my top 10 offenses, based on updated win-share projections:

The Rock Just Shared a Look at His Black Adam Chest and Triceps Workout

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson is one of the busiest guys in Hollywood right now, dropping his own line of workout shoes, executive-producing a TV show based on his life, and of course, pursuing ever greater heights in his movie career. Johnson’s next big movie, the DC superhero flick Black Adam, is both a tentpole movie and a passion project for him; when he first announced he had been cast as the lead, he spoke about how much it meant to be playing the character.

2021 Fantasy Football RB Sleepers: Potential running back breakouts, draft steals

There’s no hotter commodity in a fantasy football draft than a running back sleeper. Everyone wants to round out their picks with two or three steals (often rookies) who will emerge at some point this year and take over. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of breakout candidates considering how common injuries are at this position. When you add in the potential for COVID-related absences again in 2021, you can expect a good chunk of the league to start multiple RBs at various points this season. Any backup can have value if they get 15-plus touches per game, so you need to know more than just the top-75 RB rankings your backs’ immediate handcuffs — you damn near need to know every teams’ entire depth chart.
