08/20/2019 7:46am

By the numbers, there is no bigger advocate of President Donald Trump on Facebook than The Epoch Times. The small New York-based nonprofit news outlet has spent more than $1.5 million on about 11,000 pro-Trump advertisements in the last six months, according to data from Facebooks advertising archive more than any organization outside of the Trump campaign itself, and more than most Democratic presidential candidates have spent on their own campaigns, NBC News reported.Those video ads in which unidentified spokespeople thumb through a newspaper to praise Trump, peddle conspiracy theories about the Deep State, and criticize fake news media strike a familiar tone in the online conservative news ecosystem. The Epoch Times looks like many of the conservative outlets that have gained followings in recent years. But it isnt. Twitter Shuts Chinese Accounts Targeting Hong Kong Protests Behind the scenes, the media outlets ownership and operation is closely tied to Falun Gong, a Chinese spiritual community with the stated goal of taking down Chinas government. Its also linked to Shen Yun a dance troupe known for its ubiquitous advertising and unsettling performances.Former practitioners of Falun Gong told NBC News that believers think the world is headed toward a judgment day, where those labeled communists will be sent to a kind of hell, and those sympathetic to the spiritual community will be spared.

08/19/2019 11:26pm

The hot pink emoji house in a ritzy stretch of Manhattan Beach just steps away from the sand that was the focus of a neighborhood battle is now for sale for a cool $1.749 million, the real estate agent said.The home, located on 39th Street near Highland Avenue, went on the market Monday, weeks after the fuchsia residence was the center of a community controversy. Woman and Her Teen Daughters Visit Disneyland With a Ticket She Won in 1985 The fight began whenproperty owner Kathryn Kidd said several residents reported her home to the city.Kidd began listing the home as a short-term rental which is illegal in the city of Manhattan Beach. Airbnb did not confirm the home was listed on its site. You Want To Be a New Pet Owner. Now What Kidd said she simply made a mistake.She paid the $4,000 fine for renting out the home, back when it was a pale sandy color, and turned the home into a long term rental. Click Here or Email Your Photos to iseenbcla.com Kidd lives a couple blocks away in another property, and said she hired a painter known as Z The Art on Instagram to brighten up the home.It has nothing to do with short term rentals. It doesnt have anything to do with any of the neighbors over there, Kidd insists.But other neighbors still believe it is an eyesore, and a form of retaliation.I dont think of it as artwork. I think of it as an F-U an anonymous neighbor said.The neighbor who decided to remain anonymous said she felt the emoji house was painted to make fun of her and was a personal attack on her.Two emoji faces, both with long black eyelashes, were painted on the home. One is a silly face, and the other dons a zipper covering its mouth.I think it means to shut up, stop talking zip your lip, neighbor Dina Doll said.Kidd stood behind her reasons and said she is an art collector and loves emojis. She said the zipper emoji has to do with her daughter. She also said that it is a message to young women to cover up their bodies in order to protect themselves.The zipper relates more to fashion and to protect young women from exposing themselves because of all the weirdos around, Kidd said.Neighbors said theyre not buying Kidds story, and believe the house is ruining their property value.I dont know whats going to happen but were going to go after her with everything that we can, the neighbor said while in tears.It wasnt immediately clear if thecontroversyinspired Kidd to list the home.It is my building and I choose to paint it the colors that I want, Kidd said.Photo Credit: CharNese Turner
