The Democratic National Convention Speaker List Is a Look at the Party's Identity Crisis


"While the sitting president spent his morning chatting with his therapists on Fox & Friends, the Democratic Party was busy laying bare the basic conflicts between its present and its future. The folks running the Democratic National Convention released a new list of event speakers, including those slated to speak during the convention's opening night on Monday, and it was fairly revelatory regarding the Biden campaign's strategy. In short, a slate of Republicans have secured themselves speaking slots:

Former New Jersey Governor Christie Todd Whitman
Meg Whitman, the CEO of Quibi
Former New York Congresswoman Susan Molinari
Former Ohio Governor John Kasich"

Portland officials warn non-violent demonstrators to avoid protests that veer toward destruction

"Portland Mayor Ted Wheeler on Thursday urged non-violent protesters to either avoid city gatherings where violence is likely to occur, intervene if they see it or risk being used as a “prop” in national advertisements to aid President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign.

Wheeler, who is also the city’s police commissioner, said he is authorizing Portland officers and as well as county and state law enforcement agencies helping police demonstrations to “do whatever is necessary to safely hold these individuals accountable who are engaged in criminal activity and bring these nightly activities to a close.” He didn’t elaborate on what he meant."
"The officials particularly keyed in on a gathering in East Portland on Wednesday at which Portland police declared the event a riot and used tear gas. They did so after protesters marched to the police precinct, spray painted security cameras and a glass door in front of the building, tore plywood off some windows, cracked glass doors, lit contents inside a garbage can on fire and placed it and plywood in front of an entrance."

Police declare riot for second consecutive night Wednesday, disperse crowd using tear gas


Well there is too much to edit and quote on my cellphone but the rioting in Portland continues . The trouble has moved to police buildings in precincts away from the downtown area.
Rioters continue to provoke a situation by committing acts of vandalism. This time on police stations.

World-first gene therapy reverses Alzheimer's memory loss in mice


"Scientists in Australia have made an exciting breakthrough in Alzheimer’s research, demonstrating what they describe as the first gene-therapy-based approach for treating advanced forms of the disease. Through experiments in mice, the team was able to show how activating a key enzyme in the brain can prevent the kind of memory loss associated with advanced forms of Alzheimer's, and even reverse it.
The research was carried out at Macquarie University, where dementia researchers and brothers Lars and Arne Ittner were investigating the role of a key enzyme in the brain called p38gamma. Through previous research, the brothers had shown that by activating this enzyme in mice with advanced dementia, they could modify a protein that prevents the development of Alzheimer’s symptoms."

Oregon governor says US agents will start leaving Portland

"PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Federal agents who have clashed with protesters in Portland, Oregon, will begin a “phased withdrawal” from Oregon’s largest city, Gov. Kate Brown said Wednesday.

Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf said in a statement the plan negotiated with Brown over the last 24 hours includes a “robust presence” of Oregon State Police in downtown Portland.

“State and local law enforcement will begin securing properties and streets, especially those surrounding federal properties, that have been under nightly attack for the past two months,” Wolf said.

The agents will begin leaving the city’s downtown area on Thursday, Brown said."

Unidentified federal agents in camo and rented minivans are grabbing people off Portland's streets

"President Trump has sent an unknown number of federal agents to Portland, Oregon, ostensibly to project federal property amid weeks of protests against racism and police brutality. But federal officers "are also detaining people on Portland streets who aren't near federal property, nor is it clear that all of the people being arrested have engaged in criminal activity," OPB reported Thursday evening. One civil rights lawyer, Juan Chavez, described the federal tactics as "like stop and frisk meets Guantanamo Bay" and "more like abduction" than lawful arrest."
