“This “struggle” is not just about trying to assume power, this is as much about keeping the bad people out of power. I’ve been hearing a lot about how we have to unite to stop Trump and they’re correct that we need unity. Behind the candidate who can win, Bernie Sanders.
They go on about the terrible things Trump says, deportations, the wars in random countries, and the total disrespect for American Values. They are right to be afraid about that, a candidate does have a track record for all of those things and her name is Hillary Clinton.”
The epicenter of the nutritional world as of late has been the UK. The central issue at hand has been low-carb versus low-fat. On May 23, the National Obesity Forum issued an explosive report, which accused Public Health England (PHE) of colluding with the food industry to advocate dangerous low-fat diets.
Dr. Aseem Malhotra, one of the report’s authors, declared that low-fat dietary advice has been “perhaps the biggest mistake in modern medical history, resulting in devastating consequences for public health.”

“Diane Ravitch has been the titular leader of the grass-roots movement against corporate school reform since 2010, when her book “The Death and Life of the Great American School System” was published and quickly became a bestseller. (In fact, readers of the the pro-reform journal Education Next named it the most important book of the first decade of the 2000s.) In the book, she explained why she dropped her support for No Child Left Behind, the chief education initiative of former president George W. Bush and standardized test-based school reform. Now she has updated the book and explained why she has again changed her view on at least one important issue. This post is a Q&A I had with Ravitch about her book and the state of the public education.” – By Valerie Strauss

One year after the Supreme Court ruled that gays can legally marry across the country, and at a time when most polls show a majority of Americans support LGBT equality, the mass shooting in Orlando, Fla., shocked many Americans who had begun to take gay rights for granted.
Not only did the shootings at the Pulse nightclub occur during Pride month, when LGBT people and supporters across the U.S. celebrate the gains they have made toward equality, they also took place at a gay club — historically a safe gathering place for LGBT people, especially back when no other establishments would welcome them.
According to the Institute for American Democracy and Election Integrity:
IMPORTANT NOTE: Although we have taken note of the shift here from Sanders to Clinton, we are NOT in any way stating who has done the shifting. WE DO NOT KNOW WHO HAS DONE THE SHIFTING OF THE ELECTRONIC VOTE TOTALS. This situation has galvanized three organizations, The Institute for American Democracy and Election Integrity (ADE) , the Columbus Institute of Contemporary Journalism, and Democracy Counts to set up our own exit polls and audits to track apparent election results in California.
Richard Charnin, a mathematician and statistician and author of the book, Matrix of Deceit, has been reporting on the apparent shifting of electronic vote totals and the non-release of raw data from Edison since 2004. Richard Charnin, well-known for what he calls the “Red Shift” which has been a shift between exit polls and electronic vote total differences of about 4-5% each year. This constitutes a shift to the political right. Although he is unable to analyze the raw data, he has been able to get screen shots of what the exit polls showed minutes before all of the electronic votes have been totaled since 2004.
In 2004, when Edison Research initially got exit poll data that said that Kerry was winning and Bush was losing at 9pm on election night and that the reverse was true shortly after midnight, Edison Research made a choice to “adjust” the raw data after that time so that it would match the electronic voting machine totals. Edison Research definitely wanted to keep being hired by the Media Consortium which proposes to tell viewers the true election results but which also chooses to trust electronic voting machine data. That was the last time that the American public has been able to see raw exit poll data.
Unfortunately this year, substantial exit poll differences have been noted in the US primary. In this year’s primary, the Red Shift appears to have become the “Clinton Shift”.

In shortchanging schoolchildren, GOP lawmakers put city’s economic future at risk.
By Brian Dickerson, Detroit Free Press Columnist
“But make no mistake: Cotter and his caucus — and the coalition of for-profit charter operators and right-wing ideologues who have bankrolled their ascendancy — are determined to put the state’s largest school district out of business once and for all. In their eyes, Detroiters have forfeited the right to exercise sovereignty over their children’s education, and Republicans are determined to transfer it to a charter movement that has minimal accountability to any government body.” – Brian Dickerson
