*You’re tempted to call them “Chumps for Trump”, and there’s truth in that, but given the visceral and legitimate distrust of elites aligned with both major parties, and a corpress that is little more than a bureau of propaganda for them, shutting out any narrative that contradicts the conventional wisdom (save the Donald’s surrealism) their ignorance of their own best interest is to be expected, don’t you think?

Scalia’s Death Clears Way for Union Win in Supreme Court
In a split 4-4 decision, deep-pocketed interests like the Koch Brothers & the John Birch Society lost ground in their decades-long battle against unions, says Center for Media and Democracy’s Lisa Graves

*Desvarieux declined to pursue the question of Democrat and union culpability, which is central to an understanding of the emasculation (poorly chosen word, I realize) of labor in the US.

Union “leadership”, and the party to which they’re joined at the hip, have “compromised” away many of the rights that union members fought and died for, in the name of “political realism”.

Well, they create their own “reality”, and it’s not one any working class person should wish to live in.

Obama Visits Cuba in Historic Trip, But Will U.S. Ever End Embargo & Give Back Guantánamo?

*One would hope this program would take a more critical view of Dear Misleader’s moves with respect to relations with Cuba – the velvet glove can strangle what the iron fist couldn’t crush.

(And no, I’m not ignoring the contradictions of the revolution, but criticism of the repression that exists can exist alongside steadfast opposition to those who seek to undermine its very real accomplishments.)

Does DN! still call itself “the exception to the rulers”?

If so, that posture isn’t evident in this segment, and that can be said for any number of others, as well.

A Look Inside The Cholesterol Myth and The Side Effects of Lipitor and Statin Drugs
by Yuri Elkaim

*Again, I’m not vouching for the reliability of this, but I think it’s worth passing along.

But what’s this about inmates being “force fed” … ?

I asked the author to provide more information about this disturbing remark, and never received a response.

Even if the description’s hyperbolic, and the inmates “volunteered” for the study, I’d like to know if doing so could have had adverse affects on their health.

If so, I have grave concerns about just how voluntary their choice was, given the incentive to agree to something that might lead to an improvement in their conditions, at the cost of their well being.

The issue of full disclosure arises, as well.

Loyalty to Obama Drives Black Voter Support for Clinton
Lawrence Brown & Robert Greene discuss why Sanders is having trouble gaining support amongst black voters in the South

*Sanders could damage Clinton’s credibility with black voters by simply laying out her record as it regards the issues that resonate with them, and asking them to determine whether they believe that record merits support. It wouldn’t be posed as an “attack”, although that’s what the Clintonistas and the corpress would label it.

But he won’t do that, and I think one reason is that to do so would leave him open to accusations of harming her chances to win the election. I don’t think it would, as I believe the odds of a Republican victory are slim indeed, but that will be the line of attack from the Democratic establishment, and I don’t think he wants to burn those bridges.

His “political revolution” isn’t about fire, but what he conceives to be light.
