Fresh update on "portland" discussed on Jason Rantz
"You're listening to the best of the Jason Ranch show. Welcome back to the Jason Ranch show. It finally happened in Portland, where officers have just said no more. No more. You will not abuse us. You will not use us. You will not sit there while we are getting Almost for months and months and months, assaulted almost nightly. Coming under siege almost nightly. Last night, we learned That employees On the rapid response team, the R r R R T This is a voluntary Position of voluntary team that respond rapidly as the name suggests to these incidences. These riots And some of the other rallies ended up turning a little violent or out of control. They all resigned. Every single one of them resigned from the voluntary team. Now there's still police officers, they still retain their normal positions. But the nearly 50 employees who were on the team all said in unison, we are done. We're out. We resign. There are some significant implications to this because the primary role that they've held was public safety at These rallies at these crowded events where specifically there was deemed to be some kind of threat to the community. When Antifa goes marching around when BLM radicals go marching around, this was their job. This is what they were supposed to do. And now they're saying no. Why? Not merely because of months and months and months of being abused. To be clear. This comes because Mike Schmidt, the Multnomah County D, a decided to charge one of the officers. Decided to go after this guy harsher than he's gone after any of the antifa members. When you think about it. He charged Corey but worth a grand jury charged Corey Bud Way but worth He's a five year veteran, and he's accused of unlawfully knowingly and recklessly causing physical injury to a protester. Who said the blows left her with head and back pain. Uh huh. What do you What kind of pain do you think you cause physically and emotionally? As you were part of these events. Whether implicitly or explicitly Whether you were there on the sidelines, egging it on or actually participating. Don't know. So he's now charged with a count of assault in the fourth degree, which is a misdemeanor that could land him in jail for up to a year. And they did this because during a riot During a riot. He used some force. Against a woman who was not listening to commands. Who was getting closer and closer and closer. In fact, as it happened, I believe she was actually in the crowd as cops were trying to make an arrest, and she was there. I can't tell based on the video if she was trying to stop the cops if she was just caught up in the crowd as The cops swarmed this one guy during a targeted arrests. It's hard to tell because the video that was provided Doesn't really give you that context. But she was pushed out. By this officer. And the officer ended up pushing her pretty hard. And then using his baton pushed her head. Didn't hit that. But definitely uses the Patan and it does make contact. And it was it was hard. He did this most likely because he realized that if you don't take control of the situation, and you don't stop the mob From escalating and don't send a message. What ends up happening is they continue and continue and continue, and I have to imagine because look, I'm not going to defend this guy completely because what he did, I do think was a little bit more than he should have. However, I will say this Mike Schmidt comes out last year and says he understands the anger. Which is why he chose and said out loud he would basically not be Going after some of the criminals some of the antifa thugs based upon some of the crimes that they commit, because he understands their anger. He understands their position. He understands the politics behind it all, and why they Got out on the streets and did what they did all of these assaults all of the Molotov cocktails, which by the way were thrown, apparently that night. So he gave them a pass because he understood their perspective. He put themselves and their shoes. And yet he doesn't seem to offer that level of support and understanding and empathy. To this officer. Who I sincerely doubt was the first night on this particular duty. They're dealing in Portland or were dealing at the time, especially with the same sort of staffing crises that we are here in Seattle. So we probably dealt with this a lot. He probably had to deal every single night for several weeks before this because this was back in August. Of people trying to hurt him. People trying to murder him. In a city that seems to not really give a damn And I imagine some of that anger. Some of that emotion came out. And he acted just a little bit too far. Is it a misdemeanor? No, I don't think so. Given the context in which it was happening and how it happened. I don't think it's a crime. I think it's a cup. Who's trying to get a hold of the situation when a little bit too far because of the emotional stuff, But I don't think it rises to the level of crime that would put someone in jail for a year. That's ridiculous to me. You have people who did the exact same thing pretty much enforce. Two officers. You don't even get charged. We don't even stay in jail for longer than a few hours. Maybe. Why is it that they get treated? These criminals get treated better than the cops. Because in the Portland City government, just like in the Seattle City government. They're run by ideologues. Ideologues who listen to the anti cop activists and at all. Impacts every decision that's made and how people are viewed and how in this case, agencies are viewed. Now, as a result of that, the officers near 50 employees Decided to call it quits on this voluntary team. Why do you volunteer to get abused? Why do you volunteer to put yourself in a position that now? Just simply doing your jobs? Risks you now getting charged by a over zealous Prosecutor. And Mike Schmidt. Overzealous towards cops. Not towards the criminals. And then risk getting in front of a jury. Filled with anti cop activists. Why would you risk that? Why would you risk your career? It makes no sense. They're stepping up and I'm so glad that they did. 1 804 6587 70 If you want to join the conversation while I was lying in an Army hospital in Germany,.
Biden's Continuous Lies About BLM Feed Well for Putin
"It's one thing for literally criminals. To break through a cordon go into the capital, killing police officer backstop. Literally. Criminals didn't break through a cordon going to the capital and kill a police officer. No police officer was killed. A protester was killed. The police officer's name is unknown. Because Biden in the attorney general, do not want to release the police officer's name. In a free society. Can you imagine that? If somebody from black lives matter was shot. At the Portland courthouse and died and they were unarmed. They weren't acting violently. That the police officer would be His name concealed or her name. They wouldn't be. No. Can you imagine that? What would the press be saying? But Biden is lying here. Protesters. Even the ones that broke into the Capitol building killed anybody. They didn't kill anybody. But they have to lie. And that's why Putin and others pick up on this stuff. And threw it back at us. They throw our own lives. It Back at us. In order to defend their own

"Santas. Really? I don't. I don't think Rhonda Santa's has the Charisma or these showmanship to do stadium rally. Could you please play Greta Thunberg saying, How dare you Right now? I think I think you're going to see a reset in terms of that. I think that you're it's going to go back to more traditional. That would be a big mistake, though. I mean, he needs to try to do No. You've got to do. What is you all right, But I said, I do these things about Donald Trump. That's not gonna work. I'm not saying he's going to have a trump rally, but I mean, he needs to have a rally in Just like make some big political campaign. What does that mean? A rally? What do you need to make it fun? Okay. What? Balloon animals? Maybe some balloon animals. Maybe So, Rob, Uh, we need to talk about what's going on Portland. So the top headline that I saw today that just like jumped out at me is that Portland Police is an entire Entire riot squad. So in other words, the specific police who are trained to deal with all the crap that happens night after night in Portland, all of them have resigned and they have done so on Mass in protest after one of their own, was charged with assault for striking a quote activist. Photographer during one of the BLM protests that happened last August, and it was one of the more I mean, you remember that time of the summer, things were bad. I mean, things continue to be bad in Portland. Um and I've seen the video of this incident on August 18th 2020. So he's accused or he allegedly struck this photographer Terry Jacobs with his baton. The video shows him actually pushing her to the ground and then also striking her after she is on the ground already. It doesn't look particularly favorable for him. But video would never be manipulated to fit a cause or a narrative. Well, I don't know. I don't know if it's I don't I don't know what happened. I was not there. I did not see it firsthand. And you know? Yeah, So there's this one video that looks kind of bad, And in fact, she was not charged with any crime in terms of being part of the right. She was actually awarded a 50 grand Settlement by the city of Portland over this very incident. Plus she got her legal fees paid for, so apparently, there was a civil court that that that thought she was in the right Now. The cop there, The riot squad are furious that he has been charged. And that is why they're they're saying things like she was part of the protest. She was not just acting his press or photographer. She was. She was an activist. And so that and it was a scene of utter chaos, and no one is taking into account that that is this. Seen that goes along with the riot that it is chaos, and the cops have now been put in these positions where they're dealing with this night after night, and it's very hard to tell in the dark of night who is an activist who is in the way who is doing what they're supposed to do? Who isn't And so I understand that these cops are sick and tired of being denigrated. This was bound to happen. I don't think it's I think it's going to happen in other cities, too. Well, you know who else was in Portland? I think right about this time was a Malika. Remember him. He was the guy that helped lead the riots here and then threatened to seize the governor's mansion. And then Holcomb told him you go, buddy. And then he went out to Portland and was accused of attempting to kill police officers. These are the sort of jokers were talking about these these guys these riot cops have to deal with on a nightly basis. And they know that the politicians hate them. They know they're being used as political pawns. Good for them. Well, I I expect that Portland is going to get a whole lot worse, really, really quickly, starting as soon as this weekend, because this 50 cops all of a sudden quitting that Is terrifying. I mean, if I were in Portland right now, I would be like I'm going to go on vacation Is there get the heck out of Dodge? Is there any amount of money that could make you want to be a police officer right now in a major metropolitan city? Um No. The.

American Greatness Reporter Julie Kelly on the Mistreatment of January 6 Prisoners
"And now an extremely troubling story that I'm seeing other people and by the way, including myself latching onto now because you produce such a volume of evidence. Here that the treatment of these January six prisoners has been absolutely abhorrent Number one for a Constitution Republicans. Secondly, Julie, I'd like to do for you to address how many of those prisoners from Antifa and BLM are being treated the same way in equal conditions if you wouldn't mind. So, Dan, I'll answer your last question first, which is none. Not only is Biden's DOJ not pursuing the ANTIFA BLM rioters from last year they're actively dropping cases against Portland Antifa criminals for far worse crimes than what we saw in January six. This includes Attacking federal officers. As you know, when you talked about yesterday, destroying federal property, Chris Wray was actually confronted about this. During his testimony last week, the FBI director he tap danced around It claimed that they were still looking at all the evidence that a lot of what happened with the 2020 social justice riots if you want to call them that, or they call them that, um, there there were mostly local and state offense is not federal, so he really kept Around that. Meanwhile, you have at least three dozen January six defendants languishing for months in solitary confinement conditions in a D. C. Prison that apparently has been set up justice specifically House them under pretrial detention orders. This is not that they have already had a trial. They've been convicted. They are in jail, awaiting delayed trials for months on end. As the government drags these cases out into really next year's midterm
An Event That Struck Terror Into Portland Oregon Residents
"Over eighty years ago. Today people across america woke up to discover that the night before they had been the victim of a theatrical radio presentation. the date was october thirtieth. Nineteen thirty eight. The radio show was orson welles mercury on the air version of h. g. wells war of the worlds nineteen thirty. Eight war was brewing. As germany invaded austria japan was strongly aligned with the invader prior to world war two. It was forecast. That britain would suffer night air bombing attacks causing large numbers of civilian casualties and mass destruction. It was widely agreed that navigation targeting would be more difficult if manmade lights on the ground could be extinguished as early as july nineteen thirty eight. American citizens were urged to practice lights out beginning at dusk it would not be called blackout drills until nineteen thirty nine. Fear across the country as rumor spread about coming to the aid of our british allies. Should war break out that the sounds of war that came over the radio that october thirtieth nineteen thirty eight were not from europe but from mars. This was a live broadcast across america five. Pm in the west which would have made it eight pm eastern time meant. There was no time to warn the west about what was to come a wave of hysteria that swept across the united states at night before halloween as a realistic radio. Dramatization reached all the way to portland oregon. Two thousand five hundred miles from the scene. The fictional invasion the telephone switchboard of the oregonian newspaper was swamped by hundreds of excited calls. People rushed into the business offices of the newspaper demanding information. Hundreds of calls were made to the portland police wanting to know what protection the city offer. And what place might be safe in the event that wholesale destruction spread to the pacific coast.
Look In The Mirror - The Importance of Measuring and Tracking Everything
"Little bit today about holding the mirror up to yourself a little bit and and creating something predictable for yourself and what we mean by. That is the conversation between peer. Nice started on the idea tracking and measuring. We're both big tracking and measuring people. And so when i say tracking. Let's put some definition on that. Peter so like when i say tracking measure. What does that mean to. You means image picking out some key metrics or versus say keeping different key metrics in your lifetime. That you'd wanna move. You wanna move the needle forward you want proven you want to become better at and and making sure that those metrics are the are the right metrics significant metrics that metrics that. If you move them forward you're going to see huge results in your life. So you know putting this mirror in front of ourselves on a regular basis is a great way to see where we're at and then measure it to where we wanna go. I'm really curious. Who has a really tough time kind of tracking and measuring goals or things that you feel are important to you but just who has a tough time with that. Yeah like a lot of people. Yeah me too. I have those issues to uae portland. Peter why is it important to track and measure. And i think i wanna throw context on this. Because we're going to dive into track and measure doesn't i'm not just talking about like your data For or your commissioning. I'm talking like track and measure. And and i know that sounds a little robotic for some people. They hear that near like a like you know. I'm not one of those people. But but why is it court. What makes it important. What makes it important for you. Peter where you don't track you don't track and measure things. What happens well. I mean i've i've done both ways. Dave in you know the ultimate not tracking and measuring is taking your bills and throwing them in the drawer not paying attention to your health. You know saying that you know. I just work hard. And whatever comes my way comes my way not measuring your business metrics and just basically taking a putting your head in the sand kind of a philosophy not balancing your checkbook not looking at your taxes not thinking about you know these things that that trillion gonna come by by bite you in the but if you don't pay attention and they will show up
Liberals Don't Like an Objective Enforcement of the Law Against BLM Rioters
"Justice, a set of rules, procedures and laws. The whole idea behind justices, regardless of your race, color, creed, sex, gender, sexual orientation, whatever. It may be political ideology that you live in a free and fair country where there are a set of laws and restrictions on what you can and can't do. If you do not do those things that are illegal homicide drug dealing whatever they may be. You will. To be left alone. And if you do break those laws, those rules will be enforced fairly by judges and by a judicial system and Juries. Who will then use that law, you know, to put it. Been crushed on the volcano We call society. So why is it is Julie Kelley says there she brings up two fascinating points. At these January 6th the prisoners right now they're being charged with some of them the use of chemical irritants there on January 6th and destruction of property. And by the way, I condemn any attacks on police officers. I mean, I think that's clear right. Any rational person would, but it's kind of odd. That those exact same chemicals and property damage the federal property has been happening in Portland, Oregon and other liberal cities across America, and we don't see the exact same treatment. Is this not a fair question. Liberals love it, Of course, because liberals have been collectivism socialism. And, sadly, this new trend towards liberal fascism is here now, and they love to weaponize the Department of Justice and weaponized the FBI to attack their political opponents because they don't like any kind of objective enforcement of the law. But just this is dead. If we don't enforce the law evenly, Ladies and gentlemen, we will

King County, Washington Facial Recognition Ban Vote Set for Today
"Vote later today could create the nation's first county wide ban on facial recognition software, and we get the update from comas Corwin Hick. The Metropolitan King County Council vote is likely to Ban County government, especially law enforcement from using facial recognition technology to match faces in video and photos with criminal suspects. The tech has been shown to routinely misidentify non white faces. Especially struggling with Asians and black women. At a council hearing in April, security researchers Cynthia Speeds made the case against when he's error prone technologies are used by police departments. This could lead to violations of the Fourth Amendment, wrongful imprisonment or even death. The council vote could make King County the nation's first county to ban the tech for governmental use, following the example of cities including Boston and Portland. There is one exception here.

Rural Oregon Tries to Become Greater Idaho
"Counties in rural eastern oregon have voted to secede from their states and join neighboring idaho to become greater idaho. The proposed move is precipitated. by growing. tensions between the rural counties in the state's urban population centers. The greater idaho movement is calling for eighteen full counties three partial counties in total to depart from oregon and joined greater idaho accounting for seventy percent of oregon's land but only twenty one percent of the population or about eight hundred sixty thousand residents. The move would make idaho the third largest state in the us after alaska in texas. Oh that land accounts for so few people that idaho would still remain in the latter third of states population. Wise such a move would require approval from oregon and idaho legislature's as well as the us. Congress and the tension between the eastern and western halves of oregon are a bit of a microcosm of the nation writ large quoting the new york times. The shoots river divides the high prairies of the eastern half agricultural and politically conservative largely from the wetter. Woody your western half which has long been more populated and more liberal.

"So. Two people were killed last week amid the unrest and rioting in Kenosha. Wisconsin with the gunman now charged with murder and his lawyer saying he acted in self defense a Patriot prayer supporter was killed Portland Oregon on Saturday there were more arrests in clashes with police in Washington DC over the weekend five officers injured one hospitalized. 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. This sharps really haven't been on the blazers as far as I. can see I mean you tell me if you looked at the series pricey look. I mean, how did you see this sharpness come? You are on the Blazers Yeah. The sharps did not come in on the place of anything when I saw the tickets and the like it was the public which always scares me was the. That was betting that Blazer and listen if I think when I think of public I think aesthetic. Like to me that works perfectly. Elma J millionaire I own a mansion. But he's a man of the. And I sing on this pregame.com Mackenzie and research has an interesting one blazers change hotels the night before the game. So, why did they change hotels? Because there's only sixteen teams left so they're consolidating. So they moved I, think over the the Grand Floridian, and so this wasn't a sign of discontent. It was an upgrade effectively yes. But still a disruption. Nafta but I I don't think. Guessing all the guys have the bags like Chevy. Chase and vacation. So but I thought potentially if there was some time malt. Could, have been a problem but I don't think. So we're lost his executive suite. Are you joking now now. He had he had upgraded sweet. How do you know about this? LISTEN TO NBA? Dot Com and they're. Talking about the NBA TV and you still play the blazers. When we come back, we'll keep going down the list raptors great but there's a bigger.

We, we're all loving it because you're peacocking around before. Blazers not looking so good. How can you split and be worse off when you're huge underdog? We'll get into it. We're broadcasting on two hundred twenty-five FSR stations across his great nation sports bettors listen for the money. Sports fans to know more than their bodies. He's in La. He's a Joe. Jones knocks always good to be here are John Yes on a day in which we've got the top seeds making a statement last night in the NBA. Of NBA playoff games all throughout this Friday. What is the Vegas lead for us here today? Fez Lose. Blazers that's right. The Blazers fezzes team came up just a tad bit short and their came to effort against the La Lakers. Last night one eleven eighty eight was the final a dislocated finger for Dame Lillard a series tied at one game apiece high. So here's the thing we can have fun with it because I thought it was a horrible bat and. It's more that when he won that first game, just the swagger. So I'm just going to let you explain how you're feeling right now with your blazers pay I'm not feeling good at all I know dame broke his finger dislocated it but I'm going to be honest even if he didn't dislocate his finger Portland looked gas last night, we got bad news one of their other starters. Collins. Outweigh the year Darter Collins is a starter. Yes. How many minutes you play again he's like a fifteen minute twenty minute guy so doesn't sound like means much it normally. Wouldn't, but Portland isn't too deep team. So because of that, it is a factor but I gotta tell you are Jay Nurkic looked a little slow mccollum has a back injury. He looked slow the entire port team. Absolutely disappoint this was not so much about the Lakers playing well, in my opinion Anthony Davis played well, not the Lakers but Portland played a horrible game and then of course, their star player got injured on top of it. So here's the question. Are you potentially reacting with too much emotion because what we do know is this in every series. I mean, think back to some of the Saudis Lakers. Classics in. The eighties. One. La Comes in loses by forty three with no air conditioning next game they win by twenty. I mean, it's a heavyweight fight at this. NBA level where if you have competitive teams, they're exchanging haymakers and think back to anyone's title. That didn't sweep usually there's one game in the finals day. Look horrible. So when the blazers have played. This is the first game of ten. They played ten games the bubble now right eight before the playoffs. Three in the playoffs because they had to play Memphis to get in good point. So eleven games. And they've had one bad one. Yes. So Oh, I'm worried they have one bad out of eleven by this count you know come October they're going to have another bad I mean like what? Other than the injury isn't this tab aren't you really telling the nation Steve that you didn't really like Portland to start with and all it took was one loss the did look good that you're going to jump ship. Well, here's what was most disconcerting I. Don't think the Lakers played well at all I don't think. Definition of playing well, because I know when Dave is sturdier more, you usually don't like it. So explain to me. Is the metric you're using for not playing right so I. Watch the Game Anthony Davis was a beast Lebron underperformed Lebron. So hold on. He did he I mean he had ten point seven assists. Six rebounds. How many shots did he have? Did. He go four for thirty now. Okay. So how many I mean? So I'm confused if Lebron can actually not use a ton of energy, distribute the ball around and get a win. That seems like O'Brien played a hell of a game, right? Well, here's the thing we don't have to have affirmation that Lebron's good. That's the weird thing about playoff basketball two things happen at once every game. As you know one. The teams potentially get reevaluated. But that's a small piece of the puzzle how much you're going to change a team after a whole year on one game. The other factor is You now have to win one more game or if you one last game to win four out a seven. Are. You really going to I mean other than the injury and we can decide how we're gonNA address that if you play one game eleven unless there's something that's fundamentally changed why be so worried Because la got open threes all night long and they really didn't make very a bad game is what do you think Jonas I think that the Lakers may be didn't play as well as their possibly capable of I think their defense has been really impressive. The past two games against Portland It's the worst Portland's looked and I think a lot of that is due to because of. The Lakers defense, it's the worst dame Lillard look before the injury that's due to the Lakers defense. So maybe offensively, they're still not finding and sinking altogether and Lebron didn't have a big point output and didn't have a big statistical output but the fact they still won by twenty plus and Lebron? Didn't play quote unquote that well I think might be problematic for other teams in the. West. And I agree for sure that Lebron didn't play that well. He had four for eleven on field goals. Over four from threes adheres at six turnovers. So not great I agree but. We don't reevaluate Lebron because of that. And I think the one thing that would give you some hope here is that we figured the blazers would get tired at some point. And with dot wasn't might have been gained one when they didn't you know how the emotions are at that point it's if you got to win one, you know when you used to be. A Finance Guy, an actuary you had some big report. Do you work three nights up to one thirty in the morning what happens to that Adrenalin after you get you successfully submit that big report. You can fewer seeping out of you, right? Yes. If there was ever a time for a letdown spot. It's so funny Jones. Yesterday we were talking about and I'm Jay Bell we're straight out of Vegas how some guys in the media no matter what they see stick to their tae and what did I say about fantastic it's it's so scared he's wrong. Starts a backtrack. Let's. Let's agree to the following. If I said this leading the show if there's ever been a team this season. That was due for a letdown after up setting the Lakers and getting in the playoffs, it would be the blazers certainly true. You know what I'm doing is Jones host backups I'm going to get crushed. Depressed again let's go look to win another. So. Let's look at the odds. So before fads before this game, the percentage chance of the Blazers winning was what thirty three percent so. One out of three I think that is let me see. The odds now fifteen percents. That's less than half. So. How.

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.

"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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
