Fresh update on "portland" discussed on Drive Time Sports
"He never. Nicolay Ochoa's never came. Kept waiting for the White Knight to write in and Take over the game. He just he never did. And now is Michael Malone's explanation. My initial reaction last night, I got to say I went through. Quite a few stages of Feelings about Michael Malone in his decisions at first I and this is where I normally land first I wanted to, you know, make jokes about. Oh, my gosh, you know, Michael Malone's playing chess here. He wants the Blazers to get in and to knock off the Lakers. And then that makes the Nuggets path to it, eh? NBA finals even easier. You know? Oh, my gosh. This guy's thinking eight moves ahead or He has such disdain for the Blazers that he wanted to push him to the brink. And then just go to Terry Stotts and say, Here you go. We don't want this game. You take it. You need it more than we do. Was that movie waiting? I know, Cinematic classic, but the movie waiting about the waiters. Ryan Reynolds is in it. He was in it right before he got big. About working in a restaurant. And it made you not want to go to restaurants For, like, ever. Um But there's this Moment. Couple of times in the movie where it's about tipping, and it's You need this more than I than I do. That kind of thing is how insulting it is to say that Teo You know your server. Here. You can have this massive tip because you need it clearly more than Ideo. And I thought that Michael will, you know, maybe Michael Malone's do it some way. But as I I listened to his comments post game and I thought about just like, man. I don't like it. I don't like it. Whatever the reason, Wass Whatever the impetus behind all this, I don't like it. Because you had a chance. To potentially move up to the second seed. Get conceivably a better match up right? Worse team. The seven seed is going to be a worst team in the sixth seed. I mean, that's conventional wisdom. And you just you just send a message. You send a message. To the Portland Trail Blazers saying, Yeah, you got us last year, but you know what? No more Because we're going to beat you without four starters. And maybe we won't want to be will beat you without five starters, But it's more. I just think it was more important to win that game. Then whatever. You know, chess move that Michael Malone was trying to do. And I just thought it was It was so weak. For for him to do that, like if you didn't want Nicole Yokich to play that just don't plan. Do what every other MBA team does point on the game before it starts. Don't do it with five minutes six. Minutes to go. Just not Is not it. Not a good look. And I don't know that this has long term ramifications, but For this time period in the wake of that game, you know, I'm upset about it. I don't want the exact me cautious of Denver Stiff. Join me in our number one. He put it perfectly like The Nuggets shouldn't care who their first round matchup And we talked about this yesterday that the Nuggets looks so good right now. We're not worried about anybody. Houston, Dallas, Utah. Okay, see, Who cares? Nuggets got Michael Porter. Now it's about whether they can knock off the Lakers or the Clippers. This is not about okay. See or Utah are Dallas. Get out of here! We don't care. Was that saying about the foot and The problems of the ants. Like that. Nuggets air out way better than all of those teams. Why are we worrying about it? We're so scared of Dallas. Luca Don church has been You know, in the end befor Two seasons. That's A Dallas Mavericks team. That's going to be the seven. See, that's what we're worried about. Like I know we were worried about him. But why should Michael Malone B What we do. We worry. Michael was not supposed to worry. He's not supposed to care who the Denver Nuggets play and this is two years now. They've done this. I just got angrier as the evening progressed because I just said this is not what I want. The Nuggets to be You want the ABS air doing The average is winning. JJ is winning ball games. It's not ball games Puck games. But they're just winning games. You're dominating. That's what the ABS decided to set out to Dio. I don't care who they play. Nuggets should feel the same way. We got Porter now. Kristaps posing and Luca, Don church get back out of here. Is there better than that team? Why are we worrying about why we sweating it? You're such a bad look. A point on the game with five minutes to go. I gotta tell you, you know, maybe Maybe I was too wishy washy on it. But initially I didn't have a problem And I'm like, you know what I do? Just not good, like nuggets need to come back tomorrow and Just beat up on the Utah Jazz, like Get this out of our minds because it just wasn't good Look last night. It could have won that game. They chose not to. I mean, that's that's the fact of the matter. Lasers don't win that game. If Yokich comes back in late, no way. And on SportsCenter. They're acting like Dame took over the game. Yeah, guess what he was taking over the game in their Blazers were still losing..

Gertz husband Neil Boyle eventually became CEO of the family business. But in nineteen seventy, the forty seven year, old leader suffered a fatal heart attack. Suddenly Gert found herself at the helm of an eight. Hundred Thousand Dollar Company. She had no idea how Neil had run it nor how she and her son twenty, one year old, Timothy would manage. As CEO of Columbia Gert frequently encountered sexism, but she always had an acerbic comeback as the new. York Times reported Gert recalled that a businessman upon learning. She was the president exclaimed, but you're a woman her answer. You know I noticed that when I got up this morning. Still, the combination of rampant sexism in her inexperience almost killed the company by Nineteen seventy-one. Gert. Agreed to entertain an offer to purchase it.

Drawer Liners for Kitchens & Bathrooms
"Hi there I'm Christina Browning your host. If you feel like your household frustrations are stealing away your life hour by hour I discuss home functionality aesthetics and automation with a bit of history and a little psychology. This isn't your typical house podcast. I'm a realtor in Portland Oregon and a home functionality coach nationwide. I gig out on various subjects regarding your home. And Yard challenging you to think of your space differently to get the most out of every square foot I post questions for you to think through about your space and reason, this podcast is all positive making adulting easier one podcast at a time. Remember there's no such thing as perfect but you can still aim for your best every day episode thirty seven. You might remember episode eight be where I did a special video edition about creating family photo albums to hold many sentimental things it went over. So well that I promised myself, I would do another one. The next time I spoke about a topic that would need the same visual support, and here we are in this mini episode. Let's discuss home functionality and aesthetics as it pertains to drawer liners for kitchens and bathrooms. They will protect shelves and drawers from surface damage that can happen from water left on dishes when you unload the dishwasher or the oil and stain rings that can transfer from the bottoms of food and sauce containers. Think, ahead for a moment using shelf liner with adhesive on, it can wreak havoc on the shelf or drawer surface. Eventually when you have to scrape it aggressively away to get it off. This results in dense and divots and scratches that are cumbersome or impossible to remove. So thinking about drawer liner in this way like as if you were to fast forward into the future, it makes more sense to add a pre cut padded type liner or cork liner that slightly lifts things up off direct contact with the bottom versus using temporary wallpaper type liner that although cute will absorb. All those things and transfer them straight through to the drawer anyway also, you've got that adhesive challenge for the long haul you'll appreciate the sound muffling benefits when you have more of a padded scenario with less banging and scraping of dishes and glassware on the would they can also be removed and washed as needed. But how much of a pain is it cutting all the drawer liners to size? Such a pain

The Best Places in America to Build Wealth By Age
"Yeah. Of the things I love about when we do this show is where show ideas come from right. So obviously a lot of times it comes from the audience sometimes, it comes from something we'll be doing internally. With clients that the wealth management firm but this came from a different place. This whole show was born out of something that you would not think of money got shelby born of. So guys it probably plays out a lot like you think it is around here is that bose office is right next to my? Office and when I come in in the morning I typically I suck all productivity out of the room by going in sitting in one of his chairs and I tell him. So, here's what happened. My daughter is taking a personal finance course and one of the big topics that she had and I was just really incredible is the income tax rate by state and how that impacts as well as the cost of living for rent and other things, and I can still remember the example was San Francisco compared to Portland Oregon, and I'll get into the details later. I was just I told a house like you got to pay attention. This really is an amazing thing on while when you're starting out, you gotta pay attention what tax rates and other things because they really influence. So I was all excited about this idea in abroad a. He of course, pull out. Wait until I turned around and stuck me in the back and then told me this idea was horrible but he did make it better. I give you a lot of credit you you think like I think but you make things. I I think you take it. You bridge the idea into something else because he came up with. Why don't we do this by age of the best places to live because what you're hitting on is different parts of the country have different things, and here's what I didn't realize when we had this conversation 'cause this is probably a month and a half ago. That had this conversation was how current events were going to veer into what we're talking about here because. Just in the last three days Joe. Rogan has announced. He's moving from California to Texas. You hear Tesla is announced. They'll go have a brand new plant that they're going to be building a cyber truck in Texas as well. So you start thinking about, wow, there are things going on and how many articles do we see right now because of what happened with Cova? That people are working from home. Big corporations are announcing. You know what? Maybe we'RE NOT GONNA. Go back to the traditional office based component. We're let you work from wherever I think a lot of people are about to say. If I've a choice. Let me start figuring out what's important to me on the decision making of where I should leave live for Mafia and what I think about brides. We've never actually sat down put pen to, but we actually worked this entire exercise ourselves starting way back in like the early two thousand tins is time figuring out where we want to live like where do we want to put the business where to the families what opportunity to look for? Even, though we had, we didn't have the show pinned at that time. We kind of went through the things that we're going on the show on how you should think about where I live really impacts my financial wellbeing both now and over the long term have you ever noticed corporations will have an entire task force at their job is to figure out where they're going to put it in starting the local communities to essentially bid out, give them tax breaks and other things, and they'll they'll figure out. They'll take the executive teams and figure out where they WANNA live I. Don't think the average American I think most people live where they live because that is close to where they were born family is close to where they went to College A. You know I don't know that people have gone done a deep dive yet spend the entire show. We have so many episodes talking about training your mind to think a certain way thinking about all the tactics to building wealth but one of the most important things is to make sure that you're putting your entire financial empire is rooted in Fertile Soil Yep, and let me give you a perfect example. I lived in Georgia my entire life. Loved it. Now, there's two things that were going on Bo. You are starting to reach a point in your career on new you needed additional opportunities because i. you know the where we lived in an south, Atlanta was just not going to be economically feasible for support me and my family but future advisor wasn't GonNa be the same. So that was then have a special needs daughter Yep. So that kind of the culmination of those things brought together starting to do this research and when I tell people we moved to Nashville after we looked at Naples Florida after we looked at Alfa Reta. George after we looked at Boone North Carolina. I Charleston I mean, we have a whole list of all the different cities we went through and actually pulled up the the data points. People look at me like I have a third, all my head and I'm like, no, this is this was how important this was. So I want to encourage you to think about where you live also a former neighbor who's now back in Chicago. He says his biggest turning point in his career was when he was just a print salesman in Chicago barely you remember these guys from door to door when we were down in south. Atlanta try sell a dismal way to make a living. He took a flyer chance and started doing sells out in California for a technology company changes entire life I mean he's back in Chicago. Now lived in Tennessee for while we have clots. Yeah I think one of the thing that's really interesting Brian is like We're we were talking about this on average personal finance. It was a lot of focus on early part of your career where to decide I want to start my career but this actually permeates through all the different stages of life because what you say we have clients right now that are either at retirement at first retirement or beginning to think about retirement that are starting this process right now figuring okay. This is where I've. Lived my whole life? How do I make the choice of where? I. Want to retire where I want to move to what adjustments I wanna make, and so we're seeing it very practically right now in the lives of real human beings.

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.

"About what's going on on the streets right now because you know, we have these conflicting reports about S., Homeland Security is saying there is a violence. There's an antique presence. There's threat to federal buildings. You have some of your elected leaders in Oregon, dismissing all that insisting these are all peaceful protests are both sides right here or do you believe that this is largely ginned up by the trump administration, and there is not a threat to federal property in your city. Well let let's focus on the facts I mean. Crime is actually down in. In my home town over the last few weeks, so that is kind of the bottom line, and yes, I don't think there's any question, but the fact that Donald Trump has tried particularly using Chad Wolf who always takes the most inflammatory rhetoric, and then doubles down on it in order to create a fight and let me give you an example because I think you really gotta get down to specific cases a long time. Friend of mind is an ER doctor named Sharon Myron. She's a terrific person, never violent Boehner Body. She's also county. As well, but we know her as the Er doc. In any time, we get together for a barbecue or something like that. Everybody wants to ask or opinion about this kind of complaint or that kind kind of complaint. Couple of nights ago, she was part of the MOM's group that was downtown peacefully, protesting and one of. The trump brigade through a tear gas canister of her and her other fellow protesters, all of whom were not engaged in anything provocative, so those are the kinds of things that were paying attention to, and you've seen the accounts of veterans being beaten up when they just want to ask a question and mom's last night, the moms and dads were basically singing lullabies about not yet shot by by trump's crowd. It seems as if at this point. This president is in a sense acting with impunity, going into the streets of Portland having federal agents go into the streets of Portland and talking about doing it in Chicago. New York Philadelphia, other democratic cities as he puts it so I guess I. I sort of two questions, one is what is your sense of the legal authorities that trump has to do this. Is it clear to you that the federal government does not have jurisdiction to go into these communities particularly when they're making the case that you know in Portland for example, the US court houses, being defaced or other federal properties. And what do you do if you're a mayor in one of these cities and you don't want these this federal presence in your city. What do you do about it? I'll of begin at the beginning there I. DO think it is unconstitutional to do what trump has directed these paramilitary squads two one two. We've got legal action already under way. That we believe will make that point archery General Ellen Rosenbloom has moved in that regard. Three Senator Merkley and He's my colleague in the Oregon. Congressional delegation will be on the floor of the Senate here sometime. In the next few days. We're going to try to add an amendment to something called the end the a national defense authorization act in order to also reunion these federal agencies, but there is no question that no matter what we do. Trump is going to basically kind of stonewall. It's almost like the election. Many of the people that I know are already concerned that when trump loses the. The election I wanNA emphasize when because I believe you will. They're concerned about the fact that he won't even honor a vote of the American people, so we expect that what we're going to have to do is mobilize this Kinda. Grassroots Juggernaut, a peaceful protesters and really expose the wrongfulness of this conduct especially since yesterday. He said I'm going to be taken this nationwide. It was kind of odd because I was literally walking on the show and I was asked. What do you think about? The fact that he is targeting, not just you're sitting, but all these other cities and I said Jay, based on what I heard in home. People were saying instead of targeting attacks on us about the trump administration. Put an attack out on the coronavirus because they aren't. Doing the testing we we need the aren't I'm getting us that protective equipment we need clearly minority communities have not gotten a fair shake in terms of covid nineteen services. He's going to attack something. How `Bout! We attacked the corona virus rather than our citizens and I. Think it shows you. The priorities senator I want to read you from an editorial today in the Oregonian and some of what they had to say, but while state and local officials are right to demand that federal officers stand down, they also must take responsibility for allowing turmoil in downtown Portland's conflict zone to persist as long as it has while the apocalyptic picture described by acting. Secretary Wolf of the belongs in a novel. Novel four blocks in the city scores show the scars of the after hours destruction that has followed weeks of protests and they go on to say that all Portland needs its leaders. The City Council County leaders Portland Area State legislators and the governor to say with a unified voice that protests that devolve into destruction have no place in our city. Do you agree with them I? Have already pointed. Pointed out, Mike that are leading black leaders in the fight against the stomach. Racism have made exactly that point. We're talking about Joanna. Hardesty Ronnie Herndon, these are all names that people in my hometown are very familiar. With Day actually went and had a big press conference a gathering there were law enforcement folks as well, and they made the exact point that you're talking about which is they said? Said vandalism has no place in our city one and number two. They pointed out. The vandalism hurts their movement to end systemic racism. They said these vandals had nothing to do with our effort to deal with to stomach racism and look. Let me make one last point on this. There is no question that in Portland as in all other big cities. We've got some big challenges ahead of us. We have some stuff that needs to be fixed. I spent a big chunk of last week when I was home. Working on various kinds of approaches to reduce tensions on the streets of Portland with healthcare variety of other kinds of approaches, so I don't take a backseat to anybody in terms of condemning violence, and I literally spent a big chunk of last week, trying to advance peaceful nonviolent approaches to reduce tensions on the streets Portland. was there a sandwich that was succeeding at all because from what I read? Merchants and shopkeepers and people who have not been able to do business there because of the protesting and the violence are getting pretty frustrated with the situation. So how what evidence is there that local authorities and leadership there have been able to kind of move beyond this cycle of protests and violence and get onto a a more productive path and. As I said I think we got big challenges. To Ruud L. Systemic Racism we've got advanced peaceful nonviolent approaches. What has happened however is a challenging situation has been dramatically inflamed, needlessly unconstitutional way by the trump forces. So so what's really happened in the last couple of days is the moms and the DADS, and now they're bringing their children or locking arms in their downtown, and they're making it clear that they're interested in peaceful dialogue. Now remember guys..

"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..

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. Should the mayor agree he in fact declined hardesty, who has long been an advocate for police reform led a charge to partially fund the police which are fellow commissioner Khloe. You dallies supported. In fact, you daily support defunding police to such an extent that you tally actually voted against the budget, saying the cuts didn't go far enough, but this prompted hardesty a former Oregon state.

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.

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.

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.

We're not going to advocate our mission our responsibilities. However whatever the local leadership here is telling us. We're going to do our job We're going to do it professionally, but we're not going to have these violent anarchist who show up about the same time every night, for a series of hours of in having that federal destruction to property, and were not going to do what the Portland officials have asked, which is you know, descend, send these guys home. The pushback has been from local city officials is. The federal agents are making it worse. The federal agents are so confrontational and so. That, we're seeing more of these confrontations, not less and if the point is to see less of these confrontations than the federal agents should leave. Now. What you saw over this last weekend was that. More and more people were coming out on the street to protest. So. It'll be interesting to see what lesson the trump administration takes from that. If any, because some folks in the administration are arguing, that will should be our model in any city that has you know significant protests and significant graffiti and significant confrontations between police and protesters. And will be interesting to see if the trump administration really does attempt to bring sort of the Portland version of federal law enforcement to other cities. Because at least from what you're describing, it sounds like the federal law enforcement presence. There is actually making things worse and inciting more people to come out, and it feels like it's pretty counter to whatever you would think. The federal government's and goal is. Also, certainly, that's the argument being made by Portland City officials. But also you know one of the big arguments that's happened since all these protests over the George Floyd killing began is what is the best way to deal with mass on the street? Is it to. You know sort of the trump administration model of it down. You know, Hammer home the message as as hard as you need to add this that lawlessness or graffiti or to property destruction just simply will not be tolerated in any way, shape or form. Or is it to seek to reduce confrontation and conflict as much as possible so that there's just fewer people in the street and there's and there's less anger industry. That is the debate that's happening all around the country to different degrees. But especially in Portland.
