White House asked to stay away
from school nutrition summit

Politico, by Helena Bottemiller Evich

Original Article

Posted By:PChristopher, 7/15/2014 2:00:12 AM

Michelle Obama’s food policy czar, celebrity chef Sam Kass, was once so in with the lunch lady crowd that he landed a guest judge spot on a tearful school lunch episode of Food Network’s “Chopped” and handed out awards at the School Nutrition Association’s convention in Denver. Two years later, when he asked to speak at the group’s annual convention this week in Boston, the answer: “No.” The rebuke shows how ugly the fight has become between the first lady and her supporters, who want kids to eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains in their school lunches

Comments:
Someone please tell me why we have a ´Food Policy Czar´ and why the always angry and spiteful and unelected bigmouth Michelle Obama has any kind of ´Czar´ to begin with?!

Sounds like ab lack eye for big MO and rightly so.An un-elected person shouldn´t have this big a say so.You have to figure most people at this summit are liberals and probably bracing for a nasty call from the WH.

#1 et al...you used to be able to see the lunch menus for the Osama girls at the Sidwell Friends website. I just checked and it looks like they´ve stopped posting them online...gee, I wonder why? Be assured, however, that they aren´t eating the same things that public school kids are forced to endure.

Things were so much simpler when we just took our lunch to school and the government took care of things that it was supposed to like defending the country.

You´re right, #3. To access the menus now requires registration and logging in! Each of the three houses has a newsletter and that´s where the menus are found.

For newbies who have no knowledge of the gourmet fare provided to Malia and Sasha I did find a HuffPost piece on Sidwell´s menus, which are created and prepared by contractor Meriwether-Godsey:

There´s also a facility on the Sidwell campus called the Fox Den, where students can buy snacks, smoothies, etc.

As Martha Stewart would say, "It´s a good thing."

This guy parlayed a cooking service for working mothers like Mooch (he prepared meals for a week that went into fridge and/or freezer, to be heated up throughout the week) into a job in first the East Wing (as Mooch´s manure spreader and food toadie) and then into the West Wing as Obama´s "food policy czar" and golfing groupie. Not bad for a bald guy from Chicago.

I think this organization was in a perfect position to deliver Kass and Mooch a determined thwap. Good for them for standing against tyranny in this food fight.

General: ´Destroy the Islamic State Now´
Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper    Original Article
Posted By: PChristopher- 8/22/2014 10:00:59 AM     Post Reply
General John Allen, who is retired from the military, says that the Islamic State (known as ISIS, ISIL, or IS) must be destroyed now. "The brutal murder of the brave American journalist James Foley is meant to directly terrorize the world’s media, the international community, and the United States. If all the actions of the Islamic State, or IS, to date weren’t sufficiently reprehensible, this act and the potential for other similar acts will snap American attention with laser-like focus onto the real danger IS poses to the existence of Iraq

No One Likes Ike´s Memorial

After more than a decade of planning and $44 million spent, a proposed memorial for President Dwight D. Eisenhower may never be built. A House Committee on Natural Resources report published last week revealed the extent of the money wasted on the already controversial project. Construction for the Eisenhower memorial has not begun and the proposed design has not been approved, but the Eisenhower Commission, which was established as a staff of 12 in 1999, has already spent tens of millions of dollars on the project. Much of that money has gone to Frank Gehry

The Roma had arrived on Sunday in Landen, some 50 km (30 miles) east of the Belgian capital of Brussels. They agreed with a landowner to park 14 caravans there until Tuesday, according to Gino Debroux, the Landen mayor. "Since then, they´ve said they won´t leave and they´re there with 30 caravans," Mr Debroux told Reuters by telephone. "This is an industrial site and is not designed for camping." He said the group´s refusal to leave had led him to hire a DJ to play music from Wednesday morning, starting around 9 a.m.

Four people have been arrested and a Homeland Security officer is under investigation for firing his weapon during a weekend scuffle between pro-Israel demonstrators and Palestinian supporters outside the Federal Building in Los Angeles. The altercation Sunday evening grew out of a shouting match between the occupants of two vehicles that escalated when several people from one vehicle were assaulted by suspects in the other, the Los Angeles County Sheriff´s Office said. An officer of the Federal Protective Service, an agency of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, who witnessed the assault intervened and fired his weapon

1) No matter what they fail at, it´s always someone else´s fault. George Bush did it, the Republicans are mean, the dog ate Obama´s homework. It´s not his fault that he´s flunking every class! 2) They don´t read history, they think their parents are stupid, and they don´t need to know anything other than how they feel to make a decision. So despite the fact that everyone tells them that tying a towel around their neck will not allow them to jump off the roof like Superman, they´re going to do it anyway.

President Obama needs to take action to stop Islamic State (Isis) militants from targeting cities in America and Western Europe, two senators have warned. Without offering specifics on any threats or suggestions on how to confront them, the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives intelligence committees urged the White House to work to prevent the Islamic State extremists from launching attacks on US soil. The bipartisan pair shared a dire warning against Isis, which now has control of vast swathes of Syria and Iraq, has killed civilians from that region and beheaded American journalist James Foley. “This is

On TV, incompetence is funny, sometimes hilarious. Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out. There’s just no way to explain the president’s decision to

Some time ago I contrasted the reaction a conservative would get if he were in the same room with the two most consequential politicians of the 1990s, Bill Clinton and Rudy Giuliani. If you were in a room with Bill Clinton, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you agreed; he would probe you with questions, comments, suggestions; and he would tell you that you enabled him to understand it far better than he ever had before. If you were in a room with Rudy Giuliani, he would discover the one issue out of 100 on which you

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

One couple knows all too well the pain suffered by the parents of James Foley, the American journalist executed last month by the Islamic State. Billy and Karen Vaughn also lost their only-son Aaron Carson Vaughn in 2011, when the SEAL Team Six soldier´s Chinook helicopter was shown down over Afghanistan. Now the couple are calling on President Barack Obama to step down, citing his reaction to the Foley video and ´lack of leadership´ in confronting ISIS.

Monday at the Laborfest event in Milwaukee, President Barack Obama gave a passionate speech in his plea for fair wages for workers. At a raised pitch, he said, "I´m not asking for the moon. I just want a good deal for the workers." The president also discussed his "vision for an economy," where workers have a fair chance, retirement benefits, family leave and pay equality for woman.

The FBI said late Monday that it was investigating leaked nude photos that targeted Jennifer Lawrence and Kate Upton. The agency told the Associated Press that it was addressing accusations that online accounts of celebrities, including Oscar-winner Lawrence, had been hacked, leading to the posting of their nude photographs online. In addition, Apple Inc. spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said the company was investigating whether any iCloud accounts were compromised, according to the AP. Representatives for supermodel-turned-actress Upton, 22, and Lawrence, 24, who plays heroine Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games movie franchise, issued statements about intimate pictures which first appeared on

In remarks on the U.S. economy Monday, President Barack Obama said Congressional Republicans will eventually cave to public pressure to raise the federal minimum wage. Obama was speaking at the Laborfest festival hosted by the AFL-CIO in Milwaukee, Wis. “If I cared about these things, I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me,” he said. “I’m just saying. Because when the rest of the country is working to raise wages, but Republicans in Congress won’t, it ain’t right.” Noting the protests in recent months from fast food workers seeking higher wages, Obama said Republicans would open up to the

A federal study to determine why 75 percent of lesbian women are obese and gay men are not has totaled nearly $3 million. The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have come to several conclusions since studying “the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities,” which is slated to last until 2016. They have determined that gay and bisexual males had a “greater desire for toned muscles” than straight men, lesbians have lower

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and

Nude photos of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, as well as those purportedly showing other top Hollywood stars, were posted online in an apparent massive hacking leak. An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan. More than 100 A-list celebrities are alleged to have been targeted, including reality TV star Kim Kardashian, singer Rihanna, models Candice Swanepoel, Cara Delevingne and Kelly Brook, and

WASHINGTON — The current Congress is on track to be the worst ever at passing laws since modern record-keeping began, with three of its lawmakers failing to introduce a single bill, The Post has learned. The divided House and Senate have managed to pass just 163 laws that garnered President Obama’s signature since the two-year term began in January 2013. At this rate, Congress will have no problem beating the previous record set during the 2011-2013 session in which 284 laws were passed. That was down from 385 laws passed in the 2009-2011 session.
