Michelle Obama Moves to
Quell School Lunch Revolt

Breitbart's Big Government, by Charles Spierling

Original Article

Posted By:Flyright, 5/27/2014 8:43:15 AM

First Lady Michelle Obama is moving to quell the revolt against the school meal nutrition standards that she helped set in place. House Republicans are supporting a measure that would allow some school districts to opt out of the standards—if they can prove that it is affecting their school budgets. In response, Michelle Obama is scheduled to meet with school leaders and experts on nutrition Tuesday to discuss the importance of federal regulation of school meals. The strict rules, passed in 2010, limit the amount of fat, calories, sugar, and sodium served during school meals and requires more whole grains. “Mrs. Obama will stress

They will have her meet only with parents and kids who voted for her and think she can do no wrong. She will not confront those who are complaining about the meals she has dictated.

Mrs. Obama should eat from her own lunch menus, and leave the kids alone. Her rear deck indicates this would be a wise course of action.

Moochelle is desperate to prove that kids starving is healthy. In the quest to improve health, Mooch et al are sure that war, pestilence, death and FAMINE are the keys to long life. Only our fascist party (Dems) could resurrect the four horsemen of the Apocalypse and claim is for our own good.

#10 correctly points out that Moochelle is an attorney-- not that she ever practiced law that we know of.
But, more important, she is a DISBARRED attorney. Did you know that? Why not?
If ever one had to point out how biased the LeftMedia is, this is the perfect example. Moochelle is disbarred, and not once did the media ask why.
Meanwhile, the LeftMedia roots through Republicans life histories, and those of their spouses, for any speck of dirt or scandal.

How about this: school districts create a "secret list" of menus and ingredients that suggest compliance with federal standards, while they continue to serve students the mystery meat, fish sticks and mac and cheese that generations of public school children have eaten? It works for the VA.

I seem to recall Michelle Obama surrendered her law license. One is disbarred when their license is revoked for cause while a surrender is a voluntary act that may be undertaken for any number of reasons.

Since Illinois began to require CLE requirements for license renewal a few years back I imagine a lot of people who were not in practice and did not foresee a return to practice decided to surrender.

Even prisoners on death row get to eat what they want for their last meal. Many of the children cannot stomach her food demands and so they discard the food as garbage or bring meals from home, which is what the school lunch program was put in place to supercede. But Mrs Obama, looked up to by many as SUCH a smart woman, is truly an idealogue with no flexibility in her makeup, which makes her irrational, or simply a ´control freak´, in my opinion. Her way or the highway, or in this, the garbage can. Whether or not she truly has the best interest of the children at heart, it is obvious her plan has not
worked.

The officious Chicago Virago® wants the students to eat their beets and turnip greens. If it tastes good, it´s either banned or about to be banned by the Food Fuhrers. More food than you can imagine is already being troweled into the trash. Much more to follow. As Charles Manson sang circa 1968-1969, "Oh, garbage dump, oh, garbage dump.

It´s insulting to say that schools weren´t serving nutritious meals. Most were and are. How pretentious to presume she knows what and how much every kid in America should eat! And there is nothing like a busybody telling them what to eat to get them to refuse to eat it. A lesson every mother learns pretty early on is to not make an issue of food, but provide good food and allow children to eat what they want.

Watching the influx of unaccompanied minors crossing our southwestern border daily, a reasonable man could conclude that we are living out the fevered dreams of a dystopian novel. The United States has lost a basic aspect of sovereignty. Control over its borders is a relic of the past.Having traversed Mexico with the help of drug cartels freely operating human trafficking networks, Central American minors are voluntarily entering the United States through the Rio Grande Valley. They’re shepherded to the border, where they cross on their own and seek apprehension by Department of Homeland Security agents,

Two drones nearly took out an NYPD chopper over the George Washington Bridge on Monday, and cops arrested the wayward crafts’ operators, law-enforcement sources told The Post.The Aviation Unit helicopter was on patrol at around 12:15?a.m. when it had to swerve to avoid the small unmanned aircrafts, the sources said. The NYPD pilots “observed flying object[s] at 2,000 feet in vicinity of the George Washington Bridge, then circling heading toward the helicopter,’’ a police report said. “The officers were forced to change their course to avoid a collision.”One source called it a “very dangerous” scenario.“Although [drones] may only weigh a

Washington - The Obama administration on Sunday sought to play down new disclosures that the National Security Agency has swept up innocent and often personal emails from ordinary Internet users as it targets suspected terrorists in its global surveillance for potential threats.Administration officials said the agency routinely filters out the communications of Americans and information that is of no intelligence value. The statements came in response to a report by The Washington Post, based on a trove of conversations intercepted by the N.S.A. The Post’s analysis of the data, including information that Edward J.

The Supreme Court led by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. showed again this year that it is playing a long game, writing opinions that move the law in small but steady steps in a conservative direction.At first glance, many of its decisions appear modest, and the justices themselves downplayed them as narrow and tightly targeted. But they also set the stage for broader rulings, and liberals voiced concern about their long-term impact.Many rely on well-established rights, such as freedom of speech and free exercise of religion, but extend those rights for the first time to corporations, wealthy donors and

As it was when the U.S. pulled out of Iraq, President Obama’s vow to bring the war in Afghanistan to a responsible close at year’s end depends on reaching an agreement with the Afghan government to maintain a troop presence in the country. Obama has plans to keep a residual force there for a period of time in order to maintain stability and contain the Taliban, both in Afghanistan and across the border in lawless regions of Pakistan, where jihadis are active. But President Hamid Karzai has refused to sign a deal, and now the election to replace him is

Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School.

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal.

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin
