Michelle Obama says has no plans to seek presidency

img198.jpg

The AP is reporting that Michelle Obama said Wednesday she had no desire to follow Hillary Clinton and run for president herself, saying she could have more impact outside of Washington's polarized politics.

Obama made the remarks as she addressed the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas, where she introduced a song for charity to support a UN-backed campaign to improve education access for the 62 million unschooled girls around the world.

"I will not run for president. Nope, nope, not going to do it," she said in response to a question.

"There is so much that I can do outside of the White House, and sometimes there is much more that you can do outside the White House without the constraints, and the lights and the cameras, and the partisanship," she added.

"There is a potential that my voice could be heard by many people who can't hear me now because I'm 'Michelle Obama, the first lady.'"

Part of the first African American first family, the 52-year-old is a Harvard-educated lawyer who has made no secret of her distaste for the glare of political life and has tried to steer clear of controversy, instead focusing on issues such as fighting obesity.

She said that she also wanted her daughters, Malia and Sasha, to live elsewhere after what will be eight years in the White House.

"They've handled it with grace and poise but enough is enough," she said.

Barack Obama has also said unequivocally that his wife had no intention to run for president but stated that the couple would stay in Washington after he leaves office in January so their younger daughter Sasha does not have to change high schools.

Oh dear! I am broken hearted.

Authorities shut down Aspen airport for Michelle "Antoinette" Obama and the princesses

While Barack Obama is playing with the boys in Palm Springs, Michelle and the kids are in Aspen for the Valentine’s Day weekend.

PageSix is reporting that Michelle Obama and her children apparently halted traffic at Aspen airport as she landed for a weekend of skiing.

Michelle, with her daughters, Sasha and Malia, touched down in Aspen yesterday to spend Valentine's Day and Presidents Day weekend away from her husband.

Michelle’s arrival, amid tight security, delayed the arrival of other vacationers at the Colorado ski resort. Many of those heading into Aspen were outraged that airport officials shut down the airport until Michelle's taxpayer-paid-for Air Force Two landed and Michelle and her entourage deplaned.

Aspen airport's director of aviation, Jim Elwood, declined to discuss the situation, but said, "Typically when VIPs land, we do not close the airport, but hold other traffic for a few minutes. This is one of our busiest weekends of the year and we expect several hundred planes today."

But Elwood made an exception for the queen who was later spotted with her daughters at Aspen's Buttermilk ski area.

Michelle and children are expected to stay at the home of Aspen Skiing Company owners Jim and Paula Crown, who are big Democratic donors as they did last year. Their security team occupied a house next door.

Michelle Obama targets military food

Image868.jpg

Jonathon M. Seidl (TheBlaze) is reporting that military mess halls soon will be serving more fruits, vegetables and low-fat dishes under the first program in 20 years to improve nutrition standards across the armed services.

Michelle Obama and Pentagon officials announced the effort Thursday during a visit to Little Rock Air Force Base in Arkansas, where the military has been experimenting with ways to improve the quality and variety of foods served on base. The first lady toured a gleaming cafeteria line, then announced the program in a dining hall filled with service members whose plates were overflowing with salad greens, broccoli and whole grains.

"You all look really good, really fit," she told the airmen. "Thank you for eating your vegetables. We need you strong."

She encouraged healthy habits during a visit with individual airmen at their tables.

"Don't worry, you'll be a vegetable guy soon," she reassured one airman.

She stressed that it's not just about giving members of the armed services a more svelte profile: There are big national security and budget implications.

About a quarter of entry-level candidates for the military are too overweight to serve or to make it through their first enlistment, according to the Pentagon. And the Defense Department spends $1.1 billion a year on medical care related to excess weight and obesity.

Under the Military Health System's new obesity and nutrition awareness campaign, more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats and lower-fat entrees will be coming to the 1,100 service member dining halls across the United States in coming months. Healthier choices will be turning up in base schools, vending machines and snack bars, too, affecting more than 1.5 million service members.

Mrs. Obama, who has been leading a campaign against childhood obesity, said the military effort would send a message to the whole nation.

Image867.jpg

"When you make healthy eating a priority in your lives, the rest of us are more likely to make it a priority in our lives," she told the airmen.

The first lady was visiting Little Rock as part of a three-day national tour marking the second anniversary of her "Let's Move" campaign. She made a stop earlier in the day in Des Moines, Iowa to meet with an arena full of schoolchildren at a pep rally for healthy eating and exercise.

Under the new program, each of the armed services will be asked to update menu standards for the first time in two decades and to ensure that healthier food choices are available.

"We are intent on focusing on preventable illnesses to help our people stay out of our clinics and hospitals by improving their physical condition," said Dr. Jonathan Woodson, assistant secretary of defense for health affairs.

He said surveys in the mid-1990s found that about 1 out of 50 members of the armed services had weight problems. By about 2005, the figure was 1 in 20 service members.

Rabbits eat vegetables, Michelle. Lions eat meat!

Michelle Obama says Barack "was a bum" in school

Cheryl Chumley (WND) is reporting that Michelle Obama took her husband to task during remarks to the "Real" daytime talk show, saying Barack may be president now, but in his younger years -- in his time spent in school and college -- he was little more than a "bum" and buffoon.

"Barack fooled around in high school," she said, the Daily Mail reported. "He's said it [himself], he didn't take school seriously. He barely got his work done. He was a bum."

She said Obama didn't take his future seriously until he transferred to Columbia University and entered his second year.

And on that note, she made her point: "It is never too late. The president of the United States screwed around in high school and he still got his act together."

Wonder why Barack Obama does what he does? Andrew G. Hodges, a psychiatrist who specializes in forensic profiling, may have the answer, in "The Obama Confession: Secret Fear. Secret Fury."

Her interview with Real Daytime took place in the White House, on the heels of Obama's announced ban on solitary confinement for juveniles in prison.

Congress makes huge move to stop Michelle Obama -- and she is steaming mad

Image712.jpg

Brooke Bosca (TopRightNews) is reporting that Congress is about to make a BIG move against First Lady Michelle Obama, and it is provoking an angry response from Mrs. Obama.

Students and parents have railed against Michelle Obama's school lunch power grab for years. As TRN has reported again and again, students have rebelled against the repulsive "lunches" Michelle has inflicted on America's public schools as part of the absurdly-named "Hunger-Free Kids Act," which had made kids more hungry, as they throw them away in record numbers.

Students have taken to Twitter to denounce the horrid grub:

All while her own daughters have feasted on BBQ sliders, pepperoni flatbread pizza and meatball heroes with sundaes at their $40,000/year private school, Sidwell Friends.

Like her husband does with nearly everything, from immigration to gun control, Michelle has no technical power to do any of this, but does it anyway.

But now, Congressional GOP is moving to stop her from determining what our children eat at school lunches:

From The Daily Caller:

Bipartisan legislation released on Monday by the U.S. Senate Agriculture Committee could finally bring an end to years of aggravation over what America's hungry children must eat in school cafeterias.

If it becomes law, the five-year bill would make dramatic changes to the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, the deeply unpopular, Michelle Obama-designed 2010 legislation that restricts school lunches in taxpayer-funded schools -- but not the private school first children Malia and Sasha attend.

The main features of the bill are provisions that ease stringent rules requiring school districts to purchase whole grains and delay limits on sodium, reports the Associated Press.

Under current federal law, America's public schools must use whole grains at least 80 percent of the time if they take federal school lunch money.

The problem -- for years now -- has been that students detest the resulting foods. For example, students across American don't like whole grain pasta. And students in the Southwest don't want to have anything to do with whole grain tortillas. Also, schools in the South have problems even procuring whole grain foods to cook.

But an angry Michelle Obama has promised to fight "until the bitter end" to keep her guidelines in place. "This is unacceptable," she said during a roundtable discussion of the issue. "It's unacceptable to me not just as First Lady but also as a mother." One of her aides called the bill a "huge slap in the face" to the "fine work" Michelle has done to "solve America's school nutrition crisis."

So the battle lines are drawn, and it is not going to end well for the embattled First Spouse, as several Democrats have already signed on to the legislation.

That's because isn't just the kids who find the Moochelle-mandated lunch menus distasteful. School administrators and lunchroom workers have also fought bitterly against the rules, and a huge majority of Americans support putting the entire program where millions of students every day throw Mrs. Obama's stale rolls or tasteless tofu burgers -- into the garbage.

Grasshopper tacos on the menu for Michelle's birthday

The Daily Mail (UK) is reporting that Hours after sanctions on Iran were lifted as a result of Barack Obama's nuclear deal, Obama and his wife Michelle enjoyed a Saturday night out at a Mexican restaurant where they celebrated the first lady's 52nd birthday.

Image693.jpg

On the menu: grasshopper tacos for $5.

The Washington, DC restaurant Oyamel Cocina Mexicana is a low-key choice for dinner by presidential standards. The most expensive item on the dinner menu is the roasted lamb chop for $18.50.

Oyamel has a three-and-a-half star rating on Yelp.

Some DC residents went on Twitter to complain that the Obama's night out had disrupted theirs.

"Tried to get gelato in Chinatown tonight," wrote Twitter user Jessica Huff. "But @POTUS eating at Oyamel next door made parking impossible. #dcproblems"

Rachel B tweeted "Tried to go to Oyamel tonight but couldn't get a table. Thanks a lot, Obama. (No, really)"

The White House said the Obamas ate with friends, but would not identify which friends were present at the dinner.

Oyamel Cocina Mexicana is owned by the Spanish-American celebrity chef Jose Andres, who has appeared as a judge on Top Chef among other television appearances.

Saturday's outing comes at the end of a busy week for Obama. He delivered his final State of the Union address on Tuesday, in which he urged Americans to build a "clear-eyed, big-hearted" and "optimistic" nation. 

"Some DC residents went on Twitter to complain that the Obama's night out had disrupted theirs."

Happens whenever the Obamas dine out -- which is frequently.

The White House chef and staff are world class. Guests of the Obamas would be thrilled to dine at the White House. So why do they dine out so often?

The answer: Barack Obama's ego. He likes to be seen. He likes the attention. He loves that 40-car caravan and all the police lights and sirens and Secret Service.

Does anybody really believe that the interruptions the Obamas cause to others concerns them?

Not one bit.

Of course Michelle should remember that not too long ago, black people like her lived on a plantation not a farm. When the "massa" came to rape their daughters, the black mothers were not allowed to own or have weapons to defend themselves or their daughters. Although the 2nd Amendment was written for everybody, apparently black people were excluded. The Democrat party enforced and embraced slavery. Today, the Democrats don't want anyone to have guns. Get it Michelle?

Michelle wants a gun

Image615.jpg

Cheryl Chumley (WND) is reporting that Barack Obama made a somewhat startling admission during a CNN town hall discussion of guns and his views of the Second Amendment, telling his seated audience, as well as those around the nation who were watching, his own wife might want to pack heat in certain circumstances. Obama said, quoting his wife.

"At one point, Michelle turned to me and she said, 'You know, if I was living in a farmhouse, where the sheriff's department is pretty far away and somebody can just turn off the highway and come onto the farm, I want to have a shotgun or a rifle to make sure I was protected and my family was protected.'"

And his response to that admission?

"And she was absolutely right."

Do you wonder what Michelle has been up to lately?

Michelle continues to lower the standards and protocols of the White House with her antics.

It's probably "racist" for me to make that observation.

Proposal to name Long Beach library after Michelle Obama stirs debate

Image510.jpg

Jason Ruiz is reporting that the path of the North Branch Library in Long Beach has been about as long and winding as the road traveled by the Joads in the Steinbeck's 1939 classic. After a planning and construction period that's spanned nearly six years, now the issue of whose name will adorn its entrance when it opens in Summer 2016 is stirring debate among locals.

The naming of the library has become a point of contention over the past week after news surfaced that a motion to name it after Michelle Obama would be voted on by the Long Beach City Council. That mostly-online disagreement could make its way into City Council chambers Tuesday night, as those for and against First Lady Michelle Obama's name being bestowed on the North Long Beach library turn up to speak their mind.

Ninth District Councilman Rex Richardson said that the name was originally pitched to him by students at Jordan High School, and after the idea began to pick up steam he called community leaders to gather their support. Richardson presented a list of those backing the proposal, including his predecessor Councilman Steve Neal, LBUSD Board Member Megan Kerr and the president of every neighborhood association in his district.

Richardson pointed out that his district represents the youngest residents in the city, and this decision should be about the kids, their generation and who they look up to.

"Libraries should inspire the next generation to reach higher and that's what we should be doing," Richardson said. "This library is not just a monument to someone, this should be a catalyst for the next generation."

It will be the largest neighborhood branch in the city, and the proposal to name it after the Michelle Obama has prompted a sizable rebuke from community members who feel that the North Branch Library should be named after a person with local ties. In online discussions, several names of alternatives to Obama have been floated, including former Long Beach Unified School District Superintendent Carl Cohn, The Bixby Family and even former First Lady Laura Bush.

The city does have a policy on the books that stipulates that city-owned buildings and facilities can only be named for deceased persons. However, the policy does include a provision for the city council to be able to honor a living person on the basis that they've made a significant contribution. The council most recently utilized that privilege in September when it voted to rename the Terrace Theatre after former Mayor Beverly O'Neill.

While O'Neill's contributions to the city are more clear, having served the city for over 30 years as a faculty member and administrator at Long Beach City College and three full terms as mayor, Obama's are not. Having grown up in Southside Chicago and having no natural ties to the city of Long Beach, the motion to place Obama's name on such a prominent building in North Long Beach have left some questioning both motives and logic.

Dissenters argue that Obama has not been nearly the advocate for literacy as Bush, who started the Laura Bush Foundation for America's Libraries while her husband, President George W. Bush was in office. The foundation helps libraries nationwide update their book and media collections. However, Obama has been a big advocate of education as a whole, which is the main aim of a library, especially as more libraries move away from being just repositories for books and toward being community and educational resource centers.

Richardson's letter to the mayor and the rest of the council highlighted Obama's efforts to enhance educational efforts for youth through her Let's Move, Joining Forces and Reach Higher initiatives, which encourages youth to pursue an education past high school.

He also pointed out that there is some precedent for buildings in North Long Beach to be named after national figures and not local ones with Grant Elementary, Hamilton Middle School and even Jordan, which is named after David Starr Jordan, the founding president of Stanford University who has no natural ties to Long Beach.

"This isn't unprecedented, the majority of public institutions in North Long Beach are not named after local figures," Richardson said.

What is unprecedented is the potential for a building in Long Beach to named after a minority woman. Richardson conceded that there deserves to be more discussion and that's a large part of what Tuesday will be about but added that buildings need to be named after people who resonate with those they are there to service.

Kerr, the districts representative on the LBUSD school board said she follows the First Lady on Instagram and recalled a post from a 10-year-old girl who summarized her post to Obama simply by saying "you inspire me." She added that it's important that this is an important discussion to have and especially critical to take into account the youth's voice, because if they're never asked the questions we can never know what moves them.

Richardson and Kerr agree that for the kids of North Long Beach, that mobilizer is Obama.

"For kids, she's someone that they see regularly doing things with kids, for kids, and on behalf of kids and families," Kerr said. "I think it's important to see people who are doing the work now on their behalf."

He said in his parents era, things were named after Martin Luther King and John F. Kennedy because those were the inspirational people of that time. For him, it may have been a library named for Maya Angelou. But if you were to ask about heroes in a North Long Beach classroom, he said there's plenty to be said about the First Lady. That's why he believes it is critical to listen to the youth's suggestion for the north branch to bear her name.

"If we don't make sure that the things we do, the things we build, actually connect with the next generation then we've missed our mark," Richardson said. "We're not doing what we're called to do in terms of reaching out to this community."

Michelle Obama reveals what she will do to honor San Bernardino victim and it's beyond embarrassing

Jack Davis is reporting that during Friday's quick trip to San Bernardino to meet with families of the victims of the Dec. 2 terrorist attack, Michelle Obama made a promise.

"Mrs. Obama she did say that she would rap or perform at our fundraising concert," said Mandy Pifer, whose boyfriend, Shannon Johnson, was killed in the attack. "I will try to make her keep her word on that."

At the Friday event, which took place as the Obamas were heading to Hawaii for their Christmas vacation, separate tables were set up for each family. Barack Obama and his wife moved from table to table, talking about 10 minutes with each one, according to USA Today.

"I feel he should have been here sooner," resident Michael Stein, 25, told reporters. "You expect your leader to stand by you."

Michelle Obama's rap career took off this past week with the release of Go To College, a rap video designed to stress the importance of a college education that was shot at the White House and features Saturday Night Live's Jay Pharoah.

Reaction to her newest rap venture was negative.

"Now this is what a first lady should be doing! Sigh," wrote John S. Roberts on the Young Conservatives website. "I know Barack has advisers who constantly steer him in the wrong direction, but has anyone ever sat down Michelle and just said that something like this might not be the best idea?"

The initial video has also received some negative comments. On Friday, Fox Business News host Ashley Webster said that he found the video "embarrassing."

"Some say it's like renting out the Lincoln Bedroom," Webster said on Varney and Co. "It's a bit demeaning."

"This is ostensibly about college," conservative radio host Tammy Bruce told Webster. "But it's more, I think, about reaching out to a political constituency."

Michelle's 24-minute speech cost taxpayers $750,000

Image452.jpg

Kevin Whitson is reporting that, in two months alone this year, the Obamas spent over 4.4 million dollars on vacations and political fundraising. Judicial Watch has repeatedly stated the American taxpayer should be outraged.

Michelle Obama’s November five-day trip to Qatar and Jordan, some might say, cost Americans a pretty penny. Obama speaking at the "Let Girls Learn" conference in Doha, Qatar, cost the American taxpayer an estimated $750,000. Michelle spoke for 24 minutes. She also visited Jordan while in the Middle East, but those costs have not been reported as of yet.

While in Jordan, Michelle Obama spoke at a U.S. constructed and funded school for refugees. In a tweet, she stated that the U.S. is building 25 new schools in Jordan; and 70 percent of those will be schools for girls.

The Washington Examiner reported that the on-ground costs for the First Lady’s trip to Qatar totaled $450,000. The costs include hotel rooms, suites, and a ballroom for both Michelle and the Secret Service. The Examiner also reported that Judicial Watch usually requests, via the Freedom of Information Act, the costs for jet fuel and costs which add up to more than $300,000.

The event attended by Michelle Obama in Qatar was called the 2015 World Innovation Summit for Education; it took place on November 4th. Mrs. Obama was the guest of Sheikha bint Nasser Al Missned, who is the second of three wives to Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al Thani, a member of the ruling Al Thani family of Qatar.

The White House goes dark

Brenna Williams is reporting that Michelle Obama unveiled the decor that will greet those guests as they make their way through the East Wing. This year's theme, "A Timeless Tradition," is meant to reflect "long-held traditions cherished across America," according to a release.

Image399.jpg

One of those traditions is the White House gingerbread house. Designed and built by Executive Pastry Chef Susan Morrison and her team, this year's model -- featuring both East and West Wings for the first time -- sits in the State Dining Room surrounded by vintage nutcrackers.

Perhaps the most striking thing about this year's gingerbread house is that it isn't white. While some of the more stunning iterations have been covered in white chocolate, this year's creation was made with dark chocolate.

The structure was made out of 150 pounds of dark chocolate and more than 250 pounds of gingerbread. An estimate based on USDA data puts the calorie count at more than 775,000. In other words, enough to feed someone on a 2000-calorie a diet for more than a year. That's before the 25 pounds each of gum paste, sugar work and icing that serve as decoration. Overall, the entire structure weighs about 500 pounds.

Models of Sunny and Bo, the Obama family's dogs, stand guard outside the residence with sugar nutcrackers. The candy Secret Service cleared Santa for landing on the roof, where his sleigh and reindeer perch in a place normally occupied by security.

That's what I like most about Michelle -- her subtlety.

Michelle goes to Qatar -- complains about growing up as a girl in USA

Image194.jpg

Shifra says if you were were wondering what the word "chutzpah" means, read what the First Lady-of-Whining said in a speech in Qatar:

Via Weekly Standard:

Michelle Obama went to Qatar to give a speech on girls education. There, the first lady of the United States complained about growing up as a girl in America.

"[B]ack when I was a girl, even though I was bright and curious and I had plenty of opinions of my own, people were often more interested in hearing what my brother had to say. And my parents didn’t have much money; neither of them had a university degree. So when I got to school, I sometimes encountered teachers who assumed that a girl like me wouldn’t be a good student. I was even told that I would never be admitted to a prestigious university, so I shouldn’t even bother to apply," Obama said at the Qatar National Convention Center in Doha.

“Like so many girls across the globe, I got the message that I shouldn’t take up too much space in this world. That I should speak softly and rarely. That I should have modest ambitions for my future. That I should do what I was told and not ask too many questions…."

Boo-freakin-hoo!

Michelle's father was a volunteer organizer for the city's Democratic Party, a by-word for machine politics in America, and his loyalty was rewarded with a well-paid engineering job at Chicago's water plant.  Even before overtime, he earned $42,686 -- 25% more than High School teachers at the time.

Instead of the one-room tenement that now appears in most accounts of her upbringing, we found a well-kept neighborhood of red-brick Arts and Craft-style houses which have long been home to respectable black families.

[img933]

Michelle's mother stayed at home and devoted her energies to her and her older brother Craig.  Marian Robinson nurtured great ambitions for both her children.

Television was all but banned in favor of homework, debates about the issues of the day, games of chess, and ballet lessons.

[MichelleDances]

Bright and determined, Michelle was awarded a place at one of Chicago's first "magnet" schools.  She graduated from Whitney Young High School in 1981 where she attended the senior prom.

[img544]

She was awarded an affirmative-action seat at Princeton, one of America's most venerable and expensive universities.

"In a February 2008 interview with Newsweek, Michelle revealed that she got into Princeton … not on the strength of her grades, which she admits were unexceptional, but thanks to her brother Craig, a star athlete and gifted student who preceded her to the school.  As a 'legacy' candidate and a beneficiary of affirmative action, Michelle Obama was granted an opportunity that others more accomplished were denied."

At Princeton, Michelle wrote her senior thesis entitled "Princeton-Educated Blacks and the Black Community.

I dare you to try and read it!

Some excerpts from the thesis include the following:

"Predominately white universities like Princeton are socially and academically designed to cater to the needs of the White students comprising the bulk of their enrollments."

"[My Princeton experiences] "will likely lead to my further integration and/or assimilation into a White cultural and social structure that will only allow me to remain on the periphery of society; never becoming a full participant."

"I have found that at Princeton, no matter how liberal and open-minded some of my White professors and classmates try to be toward me, I sometimes feel like a visitor on campus; as if I really don't belong.  Regardless of the circumstances under which I interact with Whites at Princeton, it often seems as if, to them, I will always be Black first and a student second."

"Earlier in my college career, there was no doubt in my mind that as a member of the Black community I was somehow obligated to this community and would utilize all of my present and future resources to benefit this community first and foremost."

"In defining the concept of identification or the ability to identify with the Black community … I based my definition on the premise that there is a distinctive Black culture very different from White culture."

"Elements of Black culture which make it unique from White culture such as its music, its language, the struggles and a 'consciousness' shared by its people may be attributed to the injustices and oppression suffered by this race of people which are not comparable to the experiences of any other race of people through this country’s history.  However, with the increasing integration of Blacks into the mainstream society, many 'integrated Blacks' have lost touch with the Black culture in their attempts to become adjusted and comfortable in their new culture -- the White culture.  Some of these Blacks are no longer able to enjoy the qualities which make Black culture so unique or are unable to share their culture openly with other Blacks because they have become so far removed from these experiences and, in some instances, ashamed of them because of their integration."

Interesting, Michelle capitalizes Black and White -- I never learned that in school.

Michelle was determined to prove that no matter how she got there, she deserved her place in the class.  She graduated with departmental honors and was accepted to Harvard Law School, where she was accepted under the aegis of a minority outreach program.  As one of her friends would later reflect, Robinson recognized that she had been privileged by affirmative action and was very comfortable with that.

Michelle Obama announces vacation plans to travel to Muslim nations

TellMeNow is reporting that Michelle Obama has announced her latest vacation, and this time she's heading to two Muslim countries.

The White House revealed today that Michelle will be traveling to Doha, Qatar, and Amman, Jordan from November 1-7. She will be going to the Muslim nations to promote her Let Girls Learn campaign, and to spend as much of our tax dollars as she can!

While in Doha, Michelle will be speaking at the 2015 World Innovation Summit for Education (WISE), where she will address an audience of world leaders from the Middle East. Judging from some of her other vacations, we can only assume that most of her time in the region will be spent at an extravagant resort, paid for by the American people!

During her trip to Jordan, Michelle's aim is to highlight the country's "rich history and cultural heritage." Much of this history, obviously, has come at the expense of women, who are repressed in a truly devastating way in the region. However, the first lady will ignore this small detail and undoubtedly submit to Muslims as much as possible during her trip.

Someone PLEASE get this woman out of the White House!

It is absurd to believe that a visit by Michelle Obama is going to change 1,400 years of oppression of females in the Muslim world.

Montana students celebrate as school drops Michelle O's lunch rules

Image79.jpg

Victor Skinner is reporting that Montana's Bozeman High School is proving schools can serve students nutritious meals they'll love without Michelle Obama's guiding hand.

Last year, Bozeman school board members voted 5-3 to pull the high school out of the National School Lunch Program because federal regulations on calories, fat, sugar, sodium, whole grains and other nutritional elements championed by the first lady were driving students off campus for lunch, the Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports.

Instead of forking over their lunch money on the government-mandated goods, students instead opted to visit local fast food restaurants and gobble down gas station fare -- severely impacting the district's food service budget.

School officials realized it was financially advantageous to forgo $117,000 in federal food subsidies tied to the National School Lunch Program to draw students back into the cafeteria, and it seems they were correct.

"We're off to a good start," Bob Burrows, Bozeman's food service director, told board members Monday, according to the news site.

For September, "Our traffic is way up -- over 1,000 (customers a day) regularly," he said, adding that last year "that wasn't the case."

Burrows attributed much of the increase traffic to a sharp spike in "extra food" sales, or anything less than the government's definition of a full meal. Districtwide, schools took in more than $54,000 in extra food sales, mostly at the high school, equating to a 48 percent jump from the $37,000 in goods sold last year, he said.

Across the district, the food service program is $1,441 in the black so far for the 2015-16 school year. The food service budget ended last school year $16,000 in the red, which is unacceptable in a school district that relies on the program to be self-supporting, deputy superintendent Steve Johnson told the Chronicle.

And school food service workers told board members students are now getting high quality food from local sources, rather than pre-packaged meals promoted by the government.

"Burrows and Brittany Bennett, school district nutritionist, told the School Board that to replace federal commodity beef, the district is buying local beef from the B-Bar Ranch in Emigrant," according to the news site.

"Some 55 percent of foods are made from scratch in Bozeman school kitchens, which is 'crazy' in an industry that relies heavily on pre-packaged food, they said. Burrows said they make their own honey mustard, using 25 gallons of local honey in every batch."

The district is still focused on closely tracking the nutritional content of student meals, and even posts the calories, salt, and fat in each on a smart phone app so parents and students can reference the menus each week.

School food service officials told board members about 70 percent of school snacks comply with federal regulations, but about 30 percent -- mostly drinks -- do not. They said they plan to soon request the board's permission to again sell carbonated drinks in the high school's vending machines to boost sales, though officials said they were hoping to sell sparking water and other carbonated beverages, rather than pop.

School Nutrition Association says Michelle's rules are too costly for schools

Image25.jpg

Spencer Chase is reporting that federally mandated healthier school lunch rules are proving costly for the majority of schools. A survey, released on Tuesday by by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 (HHFKA), shows schools across the country are hungry for money, a new study says.

According to a survey released Tuesday by the School Nutrition Association, being in accordance with Michelle Obama's new mandates such as increased fruits and vegetables, lower sodium levels, and whole grain-rich grains has financially harmed almost 70 percent of school districts surveyed. Less than 3 percent of schools report feeling a financial benefit.

In a release, Jean Ronnei, SNA president, said to keep school nutrition programs "financially sustainable for the children they serve," Congress needs to "provide more funding and reasonable flexibility under the most stringent rules." 

"School nutrition standards have resulted in many positive changes, but we cannot ignore the repercussions - the financial impact of these rules threatens school meal programs and their efforts to better serve students," Ronnei said.

Districts are responding to the financial strain imposed on them by Michelle Obama's "nutritional" food program by reducing staff, limiting menu variety, holding off on equipment purchases, and even dipping into reserves, according to SNA. In a release, the group cited USDA data that estimates states and school districts will have to absorb $1.22 billion in new food, labor, and administrative costs in FY 2015.

Despite any financial struggles associated with meeting the new standards, almost 99 percent of school districts have implemented the plan or plan to implement "at least one of seven listed initiatives to promote healthier choices to students." However, 58 percent of survey respondents indicated that participation in school lunch programs is down, and 93 percent of those respondents cited "decreased student acceptance of meals" as a contributing factor for the decline.

Several survey participants said the healthier food options are of little benefit if students won't eat the meals. One respondent said the new guidelines fail to take into account "food quality, flavor, or regional cuisines." Another noted that students "are very intolerant of mediocre tasting products" brought about by reduced sodium levels and whole grain requirements. One commenter quipped that that their school has "the healthiest garbage" because so many students are taking meals and not eating them.  

Proponents of the new standards, like Michelle Obama, cite increasing childhood obesity figures as a key reason to implement changes. According to the Center for Science in the Public Interest, one in three children are overweight or obese, accounting for about 31 million children in the school lunch program. Military leaders have also addressed Congress saying nearly one in three Americans are too overweight to serve in the military, which poses a national security threat that demands effective changes in school feeding programs.

Team Obama has also stood behind the HHFKA and the changes it brought to the school lunch program. In an email to Agri-Pulse, a Department of Agriculture spokeswoman cited a poll released last week by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation showing that nine out of 10 Americans support "national school nutrition standards."

"We continue to listen carefully and make adjustments as needed, but when nine out of 10 Americans believe healthier school meals are the right thing to do and we are seeing signs of reversing the obesity crisis, it's clear that now isn't the time to lower the bar on our kids' health," USDA said in a statement. 

According to SNA, the 2015 School Nutrition Trends survey was conducted in June and July 2015 with SNA members, netting responses from 1,100 district-level school nutrition professionals in 49 states. The typical respondent had 16 years of experience in the school foodservice profession and represented a diverse mix of school districts with varying enrollment and portions of students receiving free or reduced-price meals.

Michelle Obama was furious after a U.S. Marine sent her this letter

Jason DeWitt is reporting that the U.S. Marines are sick of Barack Obama and his wife's behavior. One brave Marine decided to let Michelle know exactly what he thinks of her in a bombshell letter that has just been leaked to the press.

Black-themed website TheGrio is reporting that aides to Michelle are "less than pleased" that the letter is being circulated. Here it is:

Mrs. Obama

It sickens me that I have to take time to write you this letter. I am a Marine who doesn't recognize color because every color has lived and died for you. You live in a free country to blame your life on the color of another man's skin. All colors have given their lives for an educated woman to have the freedom to be so ignorant. I don't blame black people for the ignorance that comes from your mouth. I love all colors because I love all that God creates. I don't have to like you to love you because we can't always like the ones we love. Just because I don't like you today doesn't mean I can't like you tomorrow. I don't like you or your husband today because of what you're doing to this country. Isn't it funny how the truth always reveals itself in time. You and your husband never showed this side of yourselves in 2008 before he was elected.

You both live better than 99% of the people in this world because of this country. You said that you are for the first time proud to be an American. Well, I will tell you that most of us are ashamed of you. You and your husband have become millionaires off the people of this country, but demonstrate very little appreciation for all that we give. White, black, brown or indifferent millions have fought and died for you to have the freedom to say the ignorant things you say. You are educated, but clearly have very little common sense. You blame past generations of Americans for the troubles of a few. Stop blaming white people for your misery and take a look at yourself in the mirror. We are responsible for our own happiness and misery. The KKK is ignorance wrapped in a sheet while the Black panthers are raised on ignorance and hate. No different from the teaching of Islam thinking their race is better than all other men. God is love and creates every color to include everyone's skin. To truly love God is to love all that He loves. For that I love each of you and pray that we all start taking responsibility for our own damned sins.

Martin Luther King had a dream that we would all live in the promise land. He is not remembered for being black. He is remembered for the love, and character he had within his heart. If you don't like this country get on that plane and never come back. I will stay here and love all Americans, regardless of skin. I will love the beauty of what God created and stand tall with my American friends. Not because of their color but for the character and love they carry within. This country doesn't owe you anymore than it owes me. So many have thanked me for my service and I will always be grateful. I pray that one day you and your husband might cause me to be grateful for yours.

You will never be remembered as the First Lady of Color but soon forgotten after you leave the White House. You nor your husband shall ever divide us. I wish you no harm, but pray you will take your troubles to a land you no longer hate. Hate shall come and go but His love shall last forever.

If you wish to find me I am now a writer for the DC Gazette. Also on Twitter @mshep08_mike

God bless you and Semper Fi

 -- Mike Shepard

Wow!

Michelle's 2014 trip to China cost taxpayers more than $360,000 in air transportation expenses alone

Queenie.jpg

Judicial Watch just announced that it obtained records from the U.S. Department of the Air Force revealing that Michelle Obama's 2014 trip to China cost American taxpayers $362,523.53 in air travel expenses alone. The First Lady, her daughters, and her mother spent March 19 -- 26 in China, in a trip highlighted by extended visits to some of the country's most popular tourist sites.

Judicial Watch obtained the Air Force records on June 25, 2015, in response to a June 19, 2014, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking the following:

  • Any and all records concerning mission taskings of First Lady Michelle Obama's March 2014 tip to China;
  • Any and all records concerning transportation costs for Mrs. Obama's March 2014 trip to China;
  • Any and all passenger manifests for Mrs. Obama's March 2014 trip to China.

According to the newly released records, the transportation costs for the seven-day trip to China were based on a flight cost of $11,092 per hour for the Obama family, and support personnel in a C-32A presidential aircraft.  The $362,523.53 air travel expense tab for the Obama entourage was more than 225 times what the average American family spends on an entire week-long vacation.

The U.S. Secret Service has not yet responded to the request for attendant costs for personnel, accommodations, meals, rental cars, and related expenses.

The Daily Mail reported that: "Michelle Obama and three of her family members are staying in a $8,350-per-night Beijing presidential suite."  The 3,400-square-foot suite included a private steam room, and in-room dining for six.

Though the White House billed the China trip as an effort by the Michelle Obama to push her education agenda, much of the Obama family's time was spent at popular tourist sightseeing venues. According to Diplomat.com, "The First Lady, daughters Malia and Sasha, and mother Marian Robinson visited Beijing's Forbidden City and Summer Palace as well as the Great Wall, the Terra Cotta Warriors in Xi'an, and the Chengdu Panda Base."

"Once again, we find the Obamas abusing the public trust and raiding the taxpayers' coffers for unnecessarily luxurious travel," said Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton.  "The fact that it took us a full year to obtain this information about the First Lady's China junket reveals that the ‘most transparent administration in history' knows that its taxpayer-financed jaunts are so excessively extravagant that it ignores open records law to keep Americans in the dark."

Judicial Watch uncovered an expensive combination of trips by the Obamas to Africa and Honolulu, which cost taxpayers $15,885,585.30 in flight expenses alone. The single largest prior known expense for accommodations was for Michelle Obama's side-trip to Dublin, Ireland, during the 2013 G-8 conference in Belfast, when she and her entourage booked 30 rooms at the five-star Shelbourne Hotel, with the first lady staying in the 1500 square-foot Princess Grace suite at a cost of $3,500 a night. The total cost to taxpayers for the Obamas' Ireland trip was $7,921,638.66. To date, the known beyond-first-class travel expenses of the Obamas and Vice President Joe Biden exceed $57 million.

Michelle Obama lifts 40-year ban -- guests can now take photos in the White House

John S. Roberts says that it's no surprise that the wife of the most powerful man in the world likes to break the rules. She's just following the example set forth by a skilled politician and his administration.

Apparently, Michelle Obama and others behind the scenes have decided to lift a 40-year ban on taking photos while in the White House.

Sure, why not? What's tradition, right?

From IJ Review:

That's right: for 40 years, visitors to the White House were not allowed to bring cameras or take photos of any kind -- until now.

While visitors are now welcome to bring their iPhones and the like to White House tours, there's still one restriction, according to White House officials -- no selfie sticks allowed.

The Obama women's European vacations -- big spenders on somebody else's dime!

Richard Anthony is reporting that as long as the American taxpayer keeps footing the bill, there isn't a place on this planet where Michelle Obama won't spend our money, and here's the rub -- this kind of bullshit is going to continue AFTER they leave the White House -- ain't THAT a kick in the shorts ?

The Obama women's little "goodwill" tour of Italy and England is costing taxpayers in excess of $547,000, government records and estimates indicate. That amount includes the cost of flying Michelle Obama, her mother and her two daughters to London, Milan, Vicenza and Venice, and the lodging costs incurred throughout the six-day trip. It doesn't include rental vehicles for the first family's females, their staffers, and their security details. The journey costs more than twice as much per day as the average American family earns in a year.

It also doesn't include the cost of Secret Service protection and the "advance" trips the White House authorized ahead of time to lay the journey's groundwork and scout secure locations for the VIPs to visit and stay. It doesn't include rental vehicles for the first family's females, their staffers, and their security details.

American News reports Michelle Obama landed to Venice with Sasha and Malia after spending $128,781 in Milan for just in days. While the First Lady was obviously intending to live a life of luxury and glamour, she was humiliated when she exited the plan at the US Army Garrison Vicenza.

Reports indicate that Michelle was coming down off of the plan when she experienced a "Marilyn moment" and her skirt flew up. Fortunately, she was able to catch it.
