I was at until i'm at a coffee shop near the campus of mit about four years ago. The more than four years ago in sitting down with some friends and professors at mit. And we were. I thought heavens we were in boston. Nitsa summer we talk about the red sox or we talk about the weather or something in one of them. Raise the question. What do you think would be the technology that most might reshape the relationship between consumers and patients and clients constituents individuals and the various organizations that work with on a daily basis. Peter retailer healthcare provider financial services institution. What technology is going to be most important between individuals in those organizations. Will you ask that question. And twenty six tino put ourselves in the way back machine and you think oh my goodness what are. The technologies do your. Everyone is talking about well. Of course you talk about a You talk about m. l. You talk about a rv. Are i o t blockchain etc. You know all the usual suspects and it came around. And i said well.

Your your your prescriptions. Do whatever but all of a sudden the presence of a kind of persona of a brand new. We're talk one voice in marketing year. The persona of a brand with you all the time listening to you speaking to you responding to with a that led to research that led conversations and that led to a big question which was if we think this is all going to be so exciting and tremendous and transformational. What would it take. What must be true in order for that to happen. And it's from that question. The open voice network then began to emerge very cool. So you like your background was in retailing. All these different companies. You're with your title kinds of things. Were you in technology. At the time. I was no evanson in the retail. Business i was head of sales for a womenswear apparel company on the new. Your working with major department stores. I was worried about skirt length than thread. Count and how the line would come together Which then led me into them jumped technology and had responsibility i it until then at cisco for marketing and sales to the retail and consumer goods industry. How do you use technology to not just do technology. But how do you use technology to draw. Pnl value top line midland audio creative agencies. How do you win more in terms of using retailers example. How do you create more traffic. Raise the conversion rate. Raise the average basket size using technology and it was applying what i knew about processing people and adding in the technology. That's what i did for a number of years. Did the globally working around the world lot of frequent flyer miles and all that led to open.

There has to be some kind of engagement. Some usability for people like you know the the tech you can get crazy unhappy about it all day long. But if you're not communicating to the the actual consumer that you want to consume it it's null and void so that's that's a fascinating angle that you had will. You're absolutely right you just absolutely right that it has to start with the user. It has to start with the individual who's using technology. You know. I was back in the retail days than retail technology. Days talking about such things as we don't was a big idea. Let's put a back in the days of tablets. Where the hottest thing. Let's stick a tablet on a shopping cart and by golly then we can you know just tap away in shop away an inter things in have prices and everything right there in our shopping cart from a technology perspective very exciting. It involves wi fi in goals. Computer chips you can sell. A lot of technology can sell the idea. Well no one really asked. Have you ever put a child in the seat of tablet the equipped shopping cart thing you know. And what about Excuse me but any of you. Who are developing this Are any of you happen to be women with children in stores all the time here. I hate shopping. That's why i want you know what. Wait a minute timeout. It has to be the user the consumer at the center of this and we have talked from the start of the open voice network. When you think about the future of voice we can talk about our from a technology perspective. We can talk about it from a platform perspective. Weekend you know. What's the latest coming from the great great technology companies. The issue is from the user perspective from the individual who's using voice from the marketers who are using voice in their companies from the confirm the enterprise decision makers who want to use voice not as a toy for entertainment but as a tool for efficiency top line mid line operational whatever for transforming improving celebrating business results when we begin to approach voice from the user's perspective our perspective begins to change dramatically and again that's one of the things that really led to the formation. The open voice now. Would you say that will be the number one mission of your organization. We say that we use this phrase and it's can we make voice worthy of a users trust. That's a loaded phrase. Can we make Worthy the users crust can user trust voice on topics like did use on. Privacy can a enterprise zero marketer. You want to reach all your customers well right now.

On Monday night, there was a riot declared outside of Portland Mayor Ted Wheelers Condo, building with broken windows and fires started there. Bill I mean we've seen a little bit of this throughout the summer but what exactly is going on here? Well I think what you see is the the natural result when you call the police back. You, you create a vacuum in someone's going to go into it's going to be either vigilantes. Coming up against the rioters feel more in bolted than. This is really sad shows you that the role of police in cities is just so crucial there's a line between chaos and order and I. Think we're crossing it now and I don't I don't see that there's any. I don't see any more. Willingness to fix this at the local level and the longer they wait, of course, the higher the price and the more violets there The citizens suffer and some some of the political leaders officials seem to be struggling to figure out what to do. It was interesting Oregon Governor Kate Brown. said she was going to ask county sheriff's near Portland to send in officers to help keep the peace and Kim to two of those sheriff's now have issued some pretty remarkable statements. Well absolutely, Kate Brown had put out this plan to try to get everything under control and part of that was calling in the sheriff send. Officers from a local districts that are near Portland by the way I grew up outside of Portland. So all of these are very familiar names to me but and asking them to come in and assist the Portland Police Department with its work and she was just outright refused it was remarkable Clackamas County Sheriff Craig Rob Roberts issued a statement saying that he wasn't going to send deputies. The quote the criminal justice system will need to do its part and hold offenders accountable and his complaint is that you know every night people are being arrested they're being taken in. They're being immediately released the next day with no charges, and then they're right back out doing what they were doing again, and so his point was if you're you're you're district attorney's are knocking to do their job your prosecutors than this is an exercise in futility Meanwhile, you had the Washington County Sheriff Pat Garrett say that his concern is of quote the lack of political support for public safety, the uncertain legal landscape, the current volatility.

"Much of that is Dame's finger? How much of that is the series is now one one in the Lakers looked good. I think it's about fifty fifty. Okay. So About fifteen percent you think of this. Is on his finger? Yes. Okay. I I agree first of all, if you actually look at the blazers as I said, when you made your pig shocking either computer ratings I trust that had the blazers downgraded from the eight games they played in the bubble which seems crazy. But a lot of 'em winning games by two did they should have won by three. Based on the the spread and it was just so exciting. It felt bigger than it was. Right, so to me I was I was impressed with the results but I I just didn't see and I think it could be the blazers would come together as a team which they obviously did without first round or first game win. I just am flabbergasted other than the finger that if you split two games in your big underdog. Your odds are supposed to improve right because you weren't supposed to split the two. So now to win three out of five is easier for the worst team, the lesser team then to win four out of seven. So other than. That generally the case. Absolutely, and you think it's all just damn. What else could it be Collins's out but he's not that significant. Could, you imagine. Blazers fans because hand in her Hand. I wonder I wonder if it's because they're not going back to Portland. For Games three and four. Well but I mean not search known you know. Yeah, but it's an interesting point. If we're looking at the typical seven game series that I'm compared to. If you split the first two that now means you have more games at home, right? Yeah. I. Mean. You're making an interesting point in that. How much of that has to do? You've effectively underdog effectively have home court at that point because I don't think games finger is really the cause of this. It's non shooting hand I don't think that it's nothing I think that it is noteworthy but it's his non shooting hand and it's Dame Lillard he's GonNa play regardless I think last night looked bad to a lot of people and they've seen two games in a row that Portland offensively is not the same against this laker defense. But when you win one of them, I know it's pretty good so I would agree great point is and But I think that's as you know, the extra home game usually versus all neutral is going to be a small difference. I mean I don't know it's not. More than twenty or thirty cents. Thank. I actually think, yes. How much would you say? I think it'd be like forty cents. So perhaps forty cents but the actual move we were talking percentages, what were what was the blazers? Take back before and now twenty percent chance to win before the series started. Yeah. But I'm saying the take back the actual financial plus three sixty before the series started and plus three, sixty two. Now it's plus four fifty. Okay and you're saying about thirty forty cents of that has to do with it being neutral core whereas typically won't be if there's a split. Grade Point Jones is coming in strong there. So even after they get a game, they're worse off yet and that's always surprised by located but you make an interesting point. Right is typically that split would give them home core. It does in here I? Think that's a factor. Yeah and I think Dame's a factor and I also think this.

The tactics that the trump administration are using on the streets Portland or abhorrent. People are being literally scooped off the street into unmarked vans rental cars. Apparently, the mayor has been villa number one for a lot of these protesters as someone who has failed to reform the police department in the ways they want, and and yet here you have him. It's not helping. Helping the situation at all, they're not wanted here. We have an asked them here. In fact, we want them to leave. Ask The federal officers to leave his city that he doesn't want them. Here doesn't want them on the streets. And what they're doing is they are sharply escalating the situation. Their presence here is actually leading to more violence and more vandalism. And you have the cycle here of tear gas and things being thrown back and forth. Standoffs where protesters IRV holding umbrellas and shields made out of. Pool noodles and plywood, and the officers standing on the other side in in their full tactical gear and helmets and gas masks, and a scene of two sides, and not much a pathway to a resolution in the space between.

Look like they're during that same period. Began with the with a similar sort of seen that we saw around the country. Mass peaceful demonstrations. Thousands of people on the streets are really powerful images here in Portland of crowds, covering the entire burnside bridge over the Willamette River in honor of George Floyd. At the same time you've got what we saw a lot of cities. Window stoddard graffiti everywhere. Smashing windows of businesses. Or the Nike Community Store Darbar got hit. You're looking at some pictures that show the fires that were set the first night of protest. They broke into the Justice Center. Lit Fires. But what's really been different here is the. Of it where now more than fifty consecutive days into the protests? HAPPENING EVERY NIGHT Fifty days nonstop non-stop every night. And what have these nightly confrontations in Portland Look? You know it's it's all over the place you know in some of these confrontations. Many of which you can see in videos online, you could see these standoffs between. Protesters, and police were some protesters will throw water, bottles or or fireworks. Videos than breaking windows of buildings downtown are setting up barricades in the streets. Police claim they've had bricks thrown at them. Rocks thrown at them. There've been videos surfacing online of people shooting guns in the air. One group set fire in the headquarters of the police union the local police union. and. Throughout much of this time, they made it really their nightly routine together downtown right next to the Federal Court House is. This is a civil disturbance in declared it unlawful assembly. Leave the area now, or you'll be subject to use of force to include crowd. Control Munition. Now. Police kept coming. Out arresting, number of people. And responding with so much tear gas that some of these protesters went to court sued and won a judge's order limiting how much this gas could get used. Never seen covered anything like this the damage and the impact in the state and being made. Is Unprecedented. It's it's crazy to see a persistent issue that they haven't really been able to resolve. And who are the people who were involved in these nightly encounters as best you can tell it's a group with a you know a wide range of backgrounds, ideologies strategies tactics that they've brought in Portland has a history of anarchist groups in you can see some of the anarchist symbols. Symbols on the streets. You know you see a lot of people wearing all black clothing, which is pretty common for those who are part of the ANTIFA group, and then you have people who are part of the black lives matter movement, chanting the name of George Floyd and just just until you really have this huge mix mike in your time in Portland I. Imagine talking to people. In the city about this ongoing. Problem what are people? You've talked to in Portland, saying the situation. Yeah you've got. It seems like a pretty broad consensus of people who sympathized with the overall. Message of the protesters, the need for police reform and the need for resolving racial injustices at the same time those same people are. Frustrated by what seems like a line of protests that won't seem to end business people I talked to WHO. Have had their windows boarded up and short their hours for safety reasons and One of them I talked to his considering like. Maybe it's time to just get out of here because there doesn't seem to be a resolution ahead. We're physically emotionally in pain. I have officers that are injured from police. You hear them saying essentially, they're out of ideas. We love our community. We want serve our community and facilitate free speech. Saying that they're exhausted and in pain, and they're trying to show that they're part of the community to that. They aren't some sort of outside force. That's here. We're loss rather solutions right now, and I'm open to any community member who's got ideas rather solutions. We all are have the sense at this point. Correct me if I'm wrong that the police don't quite know how to resolve these nightly encounters and. These nightline counters are still happening, and so is there some sense of resignation that this is just kind of how it is going to be for a while? Yeah I mean there are certainly no deadline that was going to be coming up. There's a a hope that. The things were on a better track that the numbers that were coming out each night were starting to to shrink a little bit in might be on a on a pathway to to finishing this. And that's when a deployment federal officers arrived in town. So. What happens when those federal officials start showing up at the direction of the Department of Homeland Security? Would I mean right away? You can see that they're standing out. They've shown up here in camouflage fatigues and tactical gear so just just visually. It's pretty clear that there's an outside force that has now arrived, and they've come with a pretty aggressive posture. And what are these aggressive tactics from the federal? Forces there look. Some of it. Just you know in the streets you can see a return to a large amount of tear gas because you know. These federal officers were not under the same mandates as local police. But then. There were also tactics that you could see coming out in different videos. In first one you have this protester standing across the street from the Federal Court House. He's he's. He's got A. boombox over his head, and he's cursing at the officers across the street. All.

"Michael ISIKOFF chief investigative correspondent for Yahoo News and I'm Dan Kleinman editor in chief of Yahoo News, you know it strikes me that this is a pure case of the duality of America, the to America's. We live in. If you live in one America and you watch Fox. News night. You are seeing images of violence and vandalism in Portland and other cities played up to the hilt. This is the threat that is being conjured up on the right, and if you watch. Or, MSNBC or any of the networks you see the images of these federal agents not identified driving around in vans that are not identified scooping up protesters, arresting them and hauling them off. It's quite a clash of visions about what we are facing in this country right now. I it's split screen. America, but you know it's our job on skulduggery and in the mainstream media more generally to try to determine what reflects reality, right and I think the Fox News vision of. Radical left-wing. TEPA, but you know what does trump with radical left wing fascists, which is what trump is call them is not quite a reflection of what's really going on out there, which isn't to say that there isn't an element of anarchist out there and there. Isn't you know some vandalism that that has taken place in Portland, but you know what trump said was going on in. Portland was like Afghanistan that the violence is at the level of violence in a war that we have been in for like nineteen years, in which thousands of American soldiers have died and. And you know it looked. This is transparently political. It's Richard Nixon on steroids so nine, hundred, sixty eight. He never would have even done anything like this. He certainly did capitalize on the unrest that was taking place for his own political purposes, but he was not threatening to send armies of federal agents into all across America Major American, but as trump is, said only cities run by Democrats bright right if starting in Portland but moving into Chicago. Philadelphia New York City Liberal Democrats. Who He says is to blame for the chaotic America. That exists right now. There's no, there's no getting around the cynicism behind this. Look as we speak. This comes the day after trump has. Vowed to send similar armies of agents into Chicago, not because of the protests, but because of the violence and the and the murders on the streets which have spiked in the last few months. No question about that, but the cynicism is is so transparent, because look you know. The murders in Chicago and some other urban centres have been with us for some time. In fact, they had gone down until recently. It's only now when the president is looking for some sort of electoral strategy that can bail amount of the whole. He's in that. He's decided he's going to send federal agents in to these cities to combat the violence. Violence and I don't know whether this can work. It seems to me to be so transparent about what he's doing. And also like I mentioned Nixon before. And as we've pointed out on this podcast, there's a significant difference between then, and now which is that Nixon was running for president. The first time in nineteen sixty eight trump is is the incumbent who has been president for almost four years, and there are certainly an argument to be made, and I think some evidence to back this up that the spike in violence in some of these cities is related to the situation with Kovic is related to the fact that because this. Pandemic has gotten so out of control in this country that our economy has tanked, so it's a little bit hard for trump to make the case that he's got that. Go in with federal troops, or at least federal federal agents, because these liberal democratic mayors can't control their cities reasonable questions to be ashes. WHO's really responsible for the violence? Taking place? Well look. We've got two really good guests to talk about this both with a unique insight into what's going on on the ground in Portland so let's just get right to it. Okay. We now have with us the senator from Oregon, Ron? Wyden senator welcomed skulduggery. Hey, good to be with you, guys. It's GonNa. Be Fun and I should point out that the senator and I do go way back several decades. When he was a house member on the John Dingell Investigating Committee. It back in the day that. All sorts of crusading investigations were going on and Senator Wyden was part of them, and then Congressman Wyden was apart of them, and I was covering them. A hair and rugged, good luck. Well, you may have lost the former, but. You still have the ladder, so look a lot of attention on Portland Oregon right now and the confrontation between federal agents and the protesters. What is your best information as we sit here right now? About what the situation is on the streets of Portland what we know when it was confirmed by Donald Trump yesterday in fact I was just walking into an interview and three minutes. Went on the air. He basically said I have on Portland, but now I'm going to go after Chicago and Detroit, and Baltimore, and New York and I. Think it's real clear what he's up to guys in that is. He's Sundanese paramilitary squads in two US cities. He's trying to make it out like everybody in the city is either an anarchist, or is sympathetic to the anarchists, and he really trying to crank up a kind of us against them kind of focus and He thinks it'll be popular with right wing media and in his base, but I just want to get a little clear idea from you about what your information..

Ended up the tension on our streets, and it's caused more people not fewer people to come downtown to demonstrate on that seemingly all of Portland degrees, but that is the only thing they agree on. In fact, all of the Oregon Congressional delegation and all elected officials statewide are decrying the federal government's overreaction to the fifty plus days of sometimes violent, sometimes destructive protest, but I thought it would be interesting to take a step back and look at those fifty plus days of protest and ask. Why are they going on? What's local? Local government doing about it on that same video conference that I just played the clip of the mayor from a local TV. News reporter noted the presence of a relatively small but persistent band of protesters who have not been dissuaded, but I'm asking is. How do we get the streets of Portland back to Portlanders? This is a small group in comparison to city population. How do we get it back where we don't have fences up where people can feel safe once again, being downtown, we get rid of the Fed's number two. We contain and deescalate the situation number three. We clean up downtown and number four. We open up for business. That's the plan. Not everyone is on board with the plan and to understand why the mayor is not powerless, but power challenge to do much about it. You have to understand a little bit about Portland's unusual government structure. There are four commissioners on Portland City Council three. Three now actually because one recently died of cancer. Portland is what's known as a week mayor system. The mayor is just a little bit more powerful than all the other commissioners and each commissioner is in charge of a different city agency or many different agencies, so the mayor is in charge of the police. Another commissioner might be in charge of the Department of Public Works. The police in Portland have been beset by problems, perhaps more than other cities, but certainly to the satisfaction of the other Portland Commissioners one of them. Joann hardesty has called for the mayor to give her control of the department, which seems crazy to any other city, but in Portland that is something that could be possible.

Welcome back last week. Video circulated on twitter, showing people in camouflage, grabbing a protest or office street in Portland and putting him into an unmarked van. Since then we've learned that those people who detained the protester are members of a federal law enforcement task force sent to Portland Oregon to tamp down on what the trump administration has called tax by violent anarchists, the ACLU US senators and others though say that people's rights are being violated in the process. Help explain the situation in Portland were joined by Robert Evans. Who has been covering it on the ground? Thank you for joining US Robert. Robert There's a new level of attention being paid to the situation now, but as you wrote, this didn't all happen in a vacuum. What can you tell us about what the situation was like? At the start of the protests in late May through early July over the interactions between important police and protesters like boy interactions is an interesting way to. So this all started on the the twenty nights with a well, it started a little earlier than that. A group of local activists kind of organized around a a collective. Indigenous activists and other activists who color like started in an occupation of the justice center steps the Justice Centers Bruins police headquarters in also it's jail so they were there for a couple of nights, and eventually a group called the Beret Shin Front, which is kind of a far left activists, collective of teenagers join them in occupied the justice intersects for a couple of nights. Police rated them a little bit, and then you know on the twenty ninth. There was a mass gathering at peninsula part, and this rally started with the march from peninsula. Park all the way down to the Justice Center in by the time they got there another. Crowded grown around the Justice Center. There was also thousand crowds meet and kind of spontaneously I think really driven by the burning the third precinct in Minneapolis. Just kind of this feeling in the Air I think new. Portland, and you knew. Ahead any sort of feeling from the streets of the city. It became very obvious at a certain point like you know they're going to try to destroy the justice. Center and The police showed up and they They gave everyone in warned which gave you know people who had families time to get away? which was the a gentlemanly of them especially compared to what came next. And then they started teargassing and you know. I would say that that Friday Nights the twenty ninth was absolutely. A riot was Portland still what I would consider Portland's. Like real riot in the traditional sense were just are bunch of the are doing damage to chunks of the city like it was absolutely a riot and I think it was our own very day. activists were much more subdued but. That? Day is kind of when the police violence really started the thirtieth. Between that time early July say protests were still going on, but it never reached that level of violence from protesters at least So, what was the police response like? Though pretty extreme, you know a that rallied on the thirtieth started with police, just beating people in the face and body with truncheons to get that out of the center section. You know the moment that's really stuck in my mind. Is this older man fell down? In front of the police knocked to the ground, and a woman threw herself on his body to protect them, and they were just like three officers, just beating them both with truncheons, another like officer lost his stick in the melee, and just started running through the crowd like pummeling a man with his fists. And then they tear gas all of downtown, so not just this crowd of protesters But you know hundreds of people in traffic they were like huge, became a pattern that was repeated for nights, nights and nights, and so then after that you know, there was this constant debate about police use of force tactics not always seem to center around tear gas, the easy to focus on but the reality of it was you know the the Portland police continued to use Canada's much violence as they could get away with they got a according junction put against the use of tear gas, but it had an exception for like situations in which lives are at risk and who gets to decide when the Portland Police feel lives are at risk. It's the Portland Police. So you told The New York Times that things really shifted on the fourth of July. What happened that night? July was you know we had been having? Things are going on thirty thirty nine days that points and it started to get The crowds were starting to get smaller and smaller, and on the fourth, that trend got bucked finally like more than a thousand people showed up. They filled the the area in front of the Justice Center in the. Federal Courthouse and they brought with them. Hundreds and hundreds of illegal fireworks and started shooting fireworks up I just up into the air in front of the Justice Center to like make a fireworks show for the people who are incarcerated inside a lot of like activists who'd been locked up. But then this new folks got the idea and it was. It was partly because after doing this for a while shooting fireworks. Because these buildings, the police elrod the sound cannon, saying that they used to warn people started on the not to shoot fireworks at the federal courthouse, and whenever you tell the crowd in Portland not to do something. That's what's going to be done next. And so, what was happening? Head of evolved from his fireworks show to people assaulting the courthouse by shooting rockets at it, and so the federal agents inside dropped open these like. In the front of the building, these holes that they get to shoot out of and they were firing impact rounds under the crowd will. The crowd was like holding up shields and shooting rockets into them, and eventually fence dumped enough tear gas, and then charged out in sort of like forced everyone of the park, but this this crowd stayed together for like really the first time in the Portland streets we had a crowd that like refused repeatedly to be dispersed, and eventually escaped the police after like a running street battle, but eventually like the crowd got away intact, and then marched back and reoccupied the Justice Center and that was really in a Lotta ways. To what happened last night at the courthouse was this You. Know you you had this crowd. Do the thing that that had seemed impossible before which was like stay together and and not lose all of its numbers, despite being repeatedly shot at barraged by police, and the police were extremely violence on the floor. Right, so you're. You're saying the police, but also federal law enforcement at the the president's executive order earlier. This month authorized those federal officers that we've seen. Seen in Portland on the ground, they were needed to protect federal property. Is it just as courthouse that they're saying is under threat of being a damage. Is that why all they're claiming? All these officers are necessary. It's not just the courthouse. That's really at risk because our the like this that that started forcus kind of one of the things that that inspired I think. The President Gee this was people in. Other cities were tearing. Down Statues Thomas. Jefferson statue Washington Statute, so if you look at the the letter of the president's executive, order the Homeland Security forces here like that's kind of their. Or what the president is sort of saying is there is there legal job is to protect monuments so technically like in statue in the city. They could be sent out to protect the only place we've seen them. So far is in and around the Federal Court House like that the only place they've really been active again for they did March with the police wouldn't coordinating.

She's Betty White and I would still love to see your host of jeopardy Happen at some point for an episode or two. That's all I wanted. Yes, exactly okay time for today's top stories. Here's what you need to know. By the time you're listening to this, the president will have restarted his daily. Corona virus briefings while he did Manchester surprisingly on script today. Here's some information. You probably won't have heard if you listened in. European Union leaders agreed to spend over eight hundred fifty billion dollars to get Europe's economy back on track after the corona virus, there's no guarantee that the measure would pass before today given deep divisions and infighting between the Union's twenty seven countries over the size and scope of the Recovery Fund. To more potential corona virus vaccines have showed promise provoking immune system responses in test subjects one is being developed at Oxford University in the UK in conjunction with the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca. The other is the brainchild of the Ken Sinow Company in China. The Oxford candidate is currently recruiting subjects part of its phase, three large scale testing. But data from the BBC released today shows at the rate of infection in some parts of the. Could be anywhere from two to thirteen times higher than testing is indicating labs that process covert nineteen tests have been overwhelmed in recent weeks as the virus has surged in states around the country, the study folks on antibody testing, and concluded that many of the people who were showing no symptoms were spreading the virus without realizing it. Meanwhile Saint Louis. Top prosecutor has filed charges against two lawyers who brandished guns at black lives matters protesters last month. The. Two lawyers are a husband and wife duo named Mark and Patricia mccloskey on June twenty eighth protesters pass by their home during their march through a gated community, which prompted mccloskey's to stand on the steps of their very large home with Patricia holding a pistol and Mark Assault rifle. Footage of the two packing drew criticism from across the Internet given the poor trigger discipline that the two showed and the extremely waspy outfits. Time, but St Louis Circuit attorney, Kimberly Gardner decided it was no laughing matter. Filing felony charges of unlawful useful weapon against the two of them. But Missouri Governor. Mike Parsons told Fox News's Sean Hannity last night that he's absolutely going to pardon mccloskey's if they're convicted Parson also said that he spoke with President Trump, who agreed that the mccloskey's were just defending their property. And finally President Trump signed a memo today aimed at excluding undocumented immigrants from being counted towards congressional redistricting after twenty cents is completed. The results of the census are used to redraw districts, both at the federal and state level breaking down just how many seats in Congress state gets or how state legislatures get divided up under the terms of this new memo. Undocumented Americans will now be specifically excluded from the count when filling out. Districts potentially dropping the number of seats that some of the bigger states have in the House of Representatives supporters of the order say that it's just making sure that votes count equally, since if a district has fewer people who can legally vote those votes way on the total, but opponents point out three key things I that the memo is positioned to overwhelmingly benefit Republicans eliminate the mostly non white undocumented population when talion congressional seats second, they argue that counting non voters make sure that elected leaders represent everyone who depends on public services and finally the Supreme Court has previously barred ministration from trying to exclude undocumented people from the census altogether. This is just the latest work around. I mean these three points are great. It's pretty blatant that that's what's happening to. You know that this is leaning Republican. It's leading in favor of of white. Republicans yeah, and it's something that I feel like we're probably going to be more of as we get closer to the election. Where just what does trump think that his base wants? And how can he give it to them? Given his. You know not very poll numbers right now, and the fact that if the election today he'd be losing to Joe Biden, so the president seems like he's pretty willing to do whatever he can throw at the wall to see if it sticks, and after it helps them get reelected. Definitely, so, Casey. What do you got for the Nice people out there today? Well, beauty giant Unilever reportedly punished Asian influencers who refused to peddle skin lightening products for them.
