1. Anti-fascist group seen as playing big role in Portland unrest
Fox News reports: The Pacific Northwest Youth Liberation Front, a group comprised of anti-capitalist and anti-fascist teens, has been blamed for playing a major role in the weeks of unrest unfolding in Portland, a report Sunday said.

Mayor Ted Wheeler, a Democrat, took to Twitter late Sunday night to essentially give an update on the city’s condition as violent protests continue. Wheeler pointed to one protester who suffered a gruesome injury on Saturday night that prompted the U.S. Marshals Service to investigate, and he appealed to the public for calm.

“We are now more than a month and a half into witnessing nightly violence on our streets,” he tweeted. “Portland continues to be used as a staging ground for violence night after night. This is causing unprecedented harm to our communities, livelihoods, and Portlanders continue to fear for their safety. My main concern is this: that the continuing violence will lead to further injuries or even deaths.”

DML: If he is so concerned why not take Trump’s offer for help!

2. Actress Kelly Preston, Wife of John Travolta, Dies at 57
The Hollywood Reporter announces: Kelly Preston, the actress who starred in such movies as Jerry Maguire and, most recently, opposite husband John Travolta in Gotti, has died. She was 57.

Preston died Sunday after a two-year battle with breast cancer, Travolta wrote on Instagram.

“It is with a very heavy heart that I inform you that my beautiful wife Kelly has lost her two-year battle with breast cancer,” he wrote. “She fought a courageous fight with the love and support of so many. My family and I will forever be grateful to her doctors and nurses at MD Anderson Cancer Center, all the medical centers that have helped, as well as her many friends and loved ones who have been by her side. Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered. I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while. But please know that I will feel your outpouring of love in the weeks and months ahead as we heal.”

DML: 57 is too young. Lesson here is live everyday as if it was your last. One day you will surely be right. RIP Kelly.

3. George Soros’s Foundation Pours $220 Million Into Racial Equality Push
The NY Times reports: The Open Society Foundations, the philanthropic group founded by the business magnate George Soros, will announce on Monday that it is investing $220 million in efforts to achieve racial equality in America, a huge financial undertaking that will support several Black-led racial justice groups for years to come.

The initiative, which comes amid national protests for racial equality and calls for police reform ignited by the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis, will immediately reshape the landscape of Black political and civil rights organizations, and signals the extent to which race and identity have become the explicit focal point of American politics in recent years, with no sign of receding. Mr. Soros, who has at times faced smears and anti-Semitism over his role as a liberal megadonor, is also positioning his foundation near the forefront of the protest movement.

Of the $220 million, the foundation will invest $150 million in five-year grants for selected groups, including progressive and emerging organizations like the Black Voters Matter Fund and Repairers of the Breach, a group founded by the Rev. Dr. William J. Barber II of the Poor People’s Campaign. The money will also support more established Black political organizations like the Equal Justice Initiative, which was founded by the civil rights lawyer Bryan Stevenson and depicted in the 2019 movie “Just Mercy.”

The Open Society Foundations will invest an additional $70 million in local grants supporting changes to policing and criminal justice. This money will also be used to pay for opportunities for civic engagement and to organize internships and political training for young people.

DML: ALL LIVES MATTER, except for people like Soros who thinks only radical lives matter.

4. Redskins to retire team name Monday; new name to be revealed later
The Washington Post reports: The Washington Redskins plan to announce Monday morning that they will change their team name, three people with knowledge of the situation confirmed Sunday night. The team is not expected to reveal a new name until a later date.

Monday’s anticipated announcement comes after the organization released a statement July 3 saying it would be undertaking what it called a “thorough review” of the team’s name; multiple people familiar with the process have said that it would result in the name being changed. In an interview July 4, Coach Ron Rivera — who is working with owner Daniel Snyder to choose a name — said he hoped the new name would be in place by the start of the 2020 NFL season. Others have said it will be revealed as soon as within two weeks.

Two people with knowledge of the team’s plans said Sunday that the preferred replacement name is tied up in a trademark fight, which is why the team can’t announce the new name Monday.

DML: America is near dead.

5. Mexico now has more COVID-19 deaths than Italy
ABC News reports: Mexico has now surpassed Italy in number of deaths from the novel coronavirus with a total of 35,006 deaths confirmed in the country so far.

The United States remains by far the worst affected country in the world with 135,176 deaths followed by Brazil with 72,100 confirmed COVID-19 deaths and the United Kingdom which has had 44,904 deaths so far.

Mexico now sits fourth when it comes to number of deaths and sits just ahead of fifth-highest Italy which has had 34,954 die due to complications of the virus.

DML: And Trump is calling for DACA amnesty. Here come the caravans of sick people. Thanks Mr President. Feels like Obama’s third term with amnesty, bad economy, and riots in the streets.

    • I don’t even live in the USA and I know what is going on. Are you by any chance living on a diet of CNN, MSNBC, ABC etc?

  1. No , Shirley this is REALITY and ONE THE SILENT MAJORITY BETTER STAND UP AND START SCREAMING ABOUT! WE ARE IN THE FIGHT OF OUR LIVES AND UNLESS WE START FIGHTING IN REAL TIME, IT ‘S OVER FOR OUR AMERICA!

  2. Where are my leaders? I have yet to hear one conservative angry enough to blast the Marxist agenda. I’m 90. This Marxist Communist take over of all free countries has been creeping forward since the cold war. We thought they were beaten then but they only went underground. Americans slept as Marxism took over our schools and our children. We only grumbled when liberal politicians passed laws that made us uncomfortable, like after birth abortion and the cancel warriors complained we backed down to the now leftist NAACP. . We grumbled a little more when we realized our news services no longer reported news but opinions; all to the left. We got off our butts and elected a president who knew what was going on and valiantly tried to stop the progress of the left, and then, we abandoned him because we didn’t like his strident tone. How do you think you fight an agenda that is out to destroy you, with compliments ! I’m tired of pushing back and I don’t see a heck of a lot of help coming to push back with me. I want to hear anger and determination from my leaders. I wan’t to see the iron fist come out of the velvet glove and save the Republic. I want to sound as nasty as they are but for a better reason.

  3. Regarding #1. Is that Portland, Oregon? I live in Oregon, and haven’t heard much of this from the news here. I don’t have TV service. I have DML APP and a couple of local news apps and not seen a thing about Portland, Oregon lately. A State name would be nice. But Then our democratic governor is much more concerned with the CCP CORONAVIRUS, so I suppose she is ignoring anything else.

  4. In regard to the covid numbers, why don’t you put it in perspective by stating % to population. Italy for instance has a death rate of 0.58%. If the US had that death rate we’d be at 1,972,000 dead (based on 340 million pop. When your talking about the numbers, give the whole story, don’t just repeat the crap they’re feeding us all, we ain’t doing that bad.

  5. How do we as Americans start standing up against all this bullshit that’s destroying our beautiful country? I’m one person, can’t do it alone. Everyone of us have to stand together, including our Republican Senators,Governors, Mayors and anyone else who was elected by us the PEOPLE!

    WHERE R YALL??!! THIS COUNTRY NEEDS HELP!! WE’RE TIRED OF ALL THIS CRAP!

  6. We have more population than all Europe, so when you give the numbers of deaths it sounds like we are doing the worse, as the media pushes, yet only Germany is doing better, because of deaths per population. The people use this as a tool against Trump, yet in reality he is doing way better, by deaths.
