Who Is the Mystery Food Monitor? (Nugget pimp may be NC 'education staff member')

Who Is the Mystery Food Monitor?
No agency has said it employed the person checking preschoolers' lunch bags
By Rick Henderson
Feb. 16th, 2012

RALEIGH — Three days after a Carolina Journal report on the plight of a 4-year-old preschooler and her lunch made national headlines, the identity of the person who determined that the youngster's homemade lunch was not nutritious remains unknown.

Of the several government agencies who have been named in the controversy — the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Division of Child Development and Early Education at the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services, Hoke County schools, and the FPG Child Development Institute at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill — none will admit that it was responsible for employing or contracting with the person who was inspecting preschoolers’ lunches at West Hoke Elementary School in late January.

In the initial story published Feb. 14, CJ Associate Editor Sara Burrows reported that a preschooler at West Hoke was notified by someone at the school that the lunch she brought from home — a turkey sandwich with cheese on white whole wheat bread, a banana, a bag of chips, and a container of apple juice — did not meet USDA guidelines for nutritious meals.

Where are the TV and Radio Stations and Newspapers In NC?
Do they not HAVE investigation reporters? Why are these TV and Radio stations covering up the idenity of this food Nazi?
These stations are licensed to serve their communities. If they are incapable of serving their communities, their broadcast license should be given to other groups who WILL serve their community.

The facts we have gathered confirm that no DHHS employee or contractor did this...

I can parse that statement on so many levels. acts? What facts? Confirm? IOW, We said we did not do it and now confirm we did not do it. What did they confirm? A negative.

That sentence tells us all we need to know. If it was a DHHS employee or contractor, we will never know.

Then I bread and fry them

Ummmm, DHHS monitors this site. When you hear a knock on your door, please hand over your bread crumbs and frying pan quietly and quickly, without incident, and all will be well.
Thank you for your cooperation :)

If the school can’t or won’t provide the name of the person who interacted with this child the school is in violation of several laws. We don’t allow secret interactions with minor children in public schools. FOI and other laws make it mandatory that this food Nazi be exposed.

So some random person is sneaking on the campus, inspecting ALL lunch boxes, unbeknownst to the administrators.

What a pack of lies.

"The TV station’s update further quotes the school district’s superintendent as saying that the child was simply instructed (it is unclear by whom, and it is unclear whether the child was first asked whether she wanted milk) to go through the lunch line to get some milk ..."

Oh, great, and with all of the fuss-and-feathers about peanut allegeries and the like, they're going to tell a little girl, who may or may not be lactose-intolerant, that she HAS to go get some milk.

Sounds like another lawsuit just waiting to happen ...

Disgusting! Next the little girl will be crying over her homemade lunch in the hall, until some caring staffer discovered she was distressed because she wanted nuggets.

I hope at least 20 people get fired over this.

I find it interesting that such a person chooses to remain anonymous.

If she were doing “right”, she wouldn’t hide.

Many of the sheep celebrated the government intrusion on private property to institute smoking bans in restaurants. Now the sheep are mad that the government is using that power to monitor food consumption.

They are just getting hoisted on the petard that they provided the nanny staters.

Every government agency denies sending anyone there, so who is person? Could it be that this person is a illegal intruder into the school masquerading as a government agent??

Isn't the principal at the school supposed to be in charge? Why aren't any of the "reporters" asking him/her who is coming into his/her school?

“And school lunch stories continue to pop! In Magadore, Ohio, near Akron, a student was told she could not eat her sub sandwich, because it was “better” than other student’s lunches, and she might embarrass them!”

LOL I was horrified to learn that my son would cut up the sub sandwiches that I had made and sold it to classmates.

I thought in the post Columbine era, schools had heightened security and any K-12 school I have been in every visitor has to register. If the school has no idea who this person was then a lot of administrator types should be fired for jeopardizing the security of students. Could some local pedo just wander in claiming to be a government “lunch inspector”?

Bob Barnes, assistant superintendent of curriculum and instruction for Hoke County schools, told the Fayetteville Observer...the DHHS representative examined six lunches in the class that day, Jan. 30, and found that one did not meet federal nutritional standards. The child's mother and grandmother told CJ that the child was told she had to eat a cafeteria lunch, but Barnes told the Observer that this was a misunderstanding on the part of the 4-year-old.

"We are not the lunch bag police," Barnes told the Observer. "We would never put a child in any type of embarrassing situation. But we are responsible to see that every child gets a nutritious meal.

Why do they not look at the sign in log on the front desk at the school? For crying out loud, if we have to sign in at schools to do fire safety that we are invited to do, surely SOMEONE at the school has some clue as to who and where this person came from. Otherwise a lot more people need to be fired.

Bob Barnes should be unemployed, today.

At my grandsons daycare....if a child is not going to eat the lunch provided by the daycare, they have to have a doctors note and the lunch from home is strictly monitored. Must have a protein, vegetable and fruit. And, NO peanuts!!

As I mentioned earlier. Heard it on WNIR talk radio. Spent a lot of time in the car yesterday. Looked for the story online. Wasn’t able to find it, but I’m lousy at searches. It’s there somewhere.

Get the HELL out of children's lunches and start TEACHING them the basics, you morons! Until you get that right you shouldn't be expanding your 'teaching' to LUNCHES (or anything else)!

Something to consider:

From Wiki:

A milk allergy is a food allergy, an adverse immune reaction to one or more of the constituents of milk from any animal (most commonly alpha S1-casein, a protein in cow's milk). This milk-induced allergic reaction can involve anaphylaxis, a potentially life-threatening condition.

It is important to note that a milk allergy is a separate and distinct condition from lactose intolerance.

Did the government worker know this precious little girl could safely drink mink? Asking the little girl is not reliable, because the 4-yr old girl may likely say yes, as she cannot fully comprehend the question being asked by an adult.

“..early days, but it’s already HER [the little girl’s] FAULT!”

Too late. NC isn’t the only state in which this BS is going on. Read on:

North Carolina in Uproar Over Pre-School Lunch Inspection by Federal Agent
February 16, 2012

It’s not being reported, but the state of North Carolina is in an uproar over this...

.......Now, here’s the latest from the Carolina Journal: “The national uproar over a 4-year-old’s recent encounter with a preschool lunch monitor at a Hoke County elementary school has prompted two members of the [North Carolina] congressional delegation to fire off a letter expressing ‘strong concern’ to U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.

“’This unfortunate and absolutely unnecessary event exemplifies the very definition of “government overreach” and further perpetuates a growing reason of why the American people continue to hold less and less faith in our government,’ writes U.S. Rep. Larry Kissell, D-8th District, in the letter co-signed by Rep. Renee Ellmers, R-2nd District. Kissell represents the district in which the incident took place. The incident, in which the child’s lunch was deemed by someone at the school as failing to meet federal nutrition guidelines [established by Michelle Obama], was reported in a Feb. 14 story by Carolina Journal associate editor Sara Burrows. It quickly garnered major coverage on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show, cable news channels,” Drudge, and so forth.

“No state or school official has identified the person who intervened during the child’s lunch period to tell her she was eating a sub-standard lunch...”

And you have to understand, don’t doubt me on this, the message that was delivered from this agent to the little girl is: “Your mom doesn’t know what’s best for you; we do. You can’t trust your mom. Your mom is not making you a healthy lunch.” That’s the message. That’s the purpose of this. This is not about nutrition. This is not about making sure this four-year-old eats right.

This is about control. Like everything Obama’s doing, like everything the liberals are about, this is about control. This is about taking control of every citizen at a public institution run by the government, i.e., this school. So this little girl has this well-intentioned government official tell her that the lunch her mommy gave her is not good. It’s not healthy. This little girl went home. From what I understand, this little girl went home and asked her mother why she doesn’t care about her. I’m paraphrasing. The little girl went home and said something to her mother like, “The people at school told me that you weren’t giving me good lunch,” or something like that. This is how easy it is.

This is how easy it is. This is why, in North Carolina, people have lost their cookies. People are roiled, precisely because of this. This whole state is up in arms over this. You’re just not seeing it. It took the TV station in Raleigh two days to report on this, and when they reported it it’s still from the sympathetic standpoint of the government. But there are families — moms and dads, grandmothers and grandfathers — all over the state of North Carolina saying, “Why the hell is there a federal agent in the school investigating the lunch box in the first place for?” But the real point of this is not to make sure the girl gets the chicken nuggets.

By the way, chicken nuggets versus a banana and turkey-and-cheese sandwich? Who’s giving who a questionably nutritious food item here? But it’s not about that. It’s about control. It’s no different than back in the intense days of abortion when men were portrayed as predators. The whole point was to get little girls thinking their daddies were gonna hurt them, their daddies were dangerous, their daddies were somebody they had to be protected from. Same things here. Don’t doubt me on this. .... This is who they are.

Call ‘em statists, call ‘em neostatists, call ‘em dictators, call ‘em whatever. People who know better than you. Don’t doubt me. You know that this happening throughout our culture now. Government knows better than you. Government knows better than you what’s good for you. They don’t think that you have what it takes to make the right decisions anyway. That’s why they want as many people dependent as possible: To control ‘em! So they create doubt and distrust in this little girl’s mind about her mommy.

Now, it says here, “No state or school official has identified the person who intervened,” but we may know, because there’s another story about this.

It is from the CBS TV affiliate in Lexington, Kentucky, WKYT. Headline: “Frankfort School Cafeteria Gets Visit from USDA Official.” And the name of this official is Audrey Rowe. Audrey Rowe is visiting schools all over the nation. “’Everything we can do to make food taste good,’ Rowe told students at Elkhorn Middle School in Frankfort on Wednesday. The USDA official from Washington, DC got a first-hand look… and taste of school lunches in Kentucky. ‘I think we can make it to where one day you’ll say “that lady was here and I like this food now.” That’s what I’m working on,’ she said.”

So in this case a woman named Audrey Rowe goes to a middle school, and what she wants the students to think is that because the federal government was there, the food is good now.

The food, the lunches provided by the parents is not good, not healthy, doesn’t meet federal guidelines. But this federal agent roars into town, takes a look at the school, the cafeteria, what the students are eating, and says to the students, “I think we can make it to where one day you’ll say ‘that lady was here and I like this food now.’ That’s what I’m working on.” Could it be that this was the woman that was in North Carolina on Wednesday? I have no idea. The story says it was a state agent, and this woman is a state agent.

If it’s not the same woman, it’s the same mentality.

A Google search reveals that Audrey Rowe has been very busy inspecting many school cafeterias around the country for many months now. When did it become the federal government’s job to make sure school lunches taste good? Not that we really believe making food taste good is her ultimate role here. Once again, this is about control. This is about creating the impression in the minds of these kids that the federal government was here, and because of that, the mistakes your parents make or the mistakes everybody else in the cafeteria makes, we’re gonna fix it. Your food’s gonna taste good. You’re gonna have the right food. We love you. We are taking care of you. We know better for you than your families do. We know better for you than the principal does. We know better than your teachers do. We, the federal government, and we are from Obama, mmm, mmm, mmm, and we are who will make your life better.

“Taylor Boggs ate lunch with Rowe, who’s worked directly with President Obama on school lunch legislation,” this woman has. Well that would make her Michelle Obama’s enforcer.

She’s the deputy administrator of the USDA’s food and nutrition service. As a black woman from Chicago, she went to Harvard, she’s a natural fit for the job. “Usually for students, if they don’t have a good lunch, sometime around mid-afternoon, they get sluggish, start having issues,” said Audrey Rowe. “Rowe says the bottom line is that school lunches today are going to be a lot different next year,” once Michelle really gets her hands on the levers of power. “8th graders say their meals are pretty good, but some days… ‘It’s really greasy…and not fresh.’”

These government chicken nuggets can be greasy, can’t they? “Rowe says some districts have brought in chefs in to make changes.” Yeah, these are SEIU chefs, by the way. These are SEIU cafeteria workers. These are Obama union thugs being brought in here.

“Elkhorn Middle School was given the thumbs up for already serving fat free milk and whole grain buns. ‘I’m really pleased with what I see here in Kentucky. Other school districts are not as far along,’ Rowe said. Rowe says the new laws will not just change what is served in cafeterias, but what is allowed in vending machines and other areas of the school.”

Now, remember, this has all been tried in California.

They tried the healthful stuff in California and there was a black market created in Doritos and Lay’s Potato Chips and everything else that you could no longer get in the vending machines and they finally had to give up and put the garbage food back in. They were about to have riots. The kids did not want to eat chickpeas, garbanzo beans, and tofu.

So I don’t know if this was the same woman. Probably not. But the mind-set is the same. You got federal agents in schools and what they’re doing is telling the kids their parents can’t be trusted. Not that their parents mean them harm. Their parents just aren’t competent. They’re just not as good at this as we are. Trust us.

....Anyway, this is the kind of thing that when it happens and people hear about it, they get up in arms. Nobody who voted for Obama intended for this, I guarantee you. Very few.

The vast majority of the literal mind-numbed robots that voted for him did not think this is what was going to happen.

I want to read you a passage from Obama’s second autobiography, The Audacity of Hope. I’ve read this to you before. This is from page 36. This is Obama writing in his second autobiography. Quote, “We all agree that there must be limits to the state’s power to control our behavior, even if it’s for our own good. Not many Americans would feel comfortable with the government monitoring what we eat, no matter how many deaths and how much of our medical spending may be due to rising rates of obesity.”

Well, I guess that doesn’t mean much. “Not many Americans would feel comfortable with the government —” wait a minute. That doesn’t mean he’s not gonna do it. He just says you wouldn’t be comfortable with it.

So Obama wrote that back in 2006, and it doesn’t mean he’s not going to monitor what we eat. It just means he knows we’re not gonna like it. Plain as day. “Not many Americans would feel comfortable with the government monitoring what we eat, no matter how many deaths and how much of our medical spending may be due to rising rates of obesity.” But because of the rising rates of obesity and because of how much of our medical spending is being spent on that stuff, we’re gonna have to monitor what people eat. He doesn’t say it, but the implication is clear.

I want to wrap up this North Carolina thing and move on. It’s big, and I could spend another hour on this with perspective, but there are other things I must get to today.... What’s happening now is the CYA. Everybody at the Hoke Elementary School in North Carolina, this preschool, is trying now to shift the blame elsewhere or to say that this story is not what it’s being reported to be.

There aren’t jackbooted thugs in here! The story going out now is that it was just a misunderstanding, that the four-year-old little girl was never made to eat the chicken nuggets, that she was just a little confused and a little stupid.

In fact, the Raleigh television station’s online story on this features a headline which (if you read it the right way, if you know where their starting point is on this), you could say, you can assume that they’re basically agreeing here with the little girl basically being a little confused, maybe a little stupid. It’s just all a misunderstanding!

But put yourself in the situation that this four-year-old little girl’s in. Now, you’re four years old. Everything can scare you. Here comes an adult telling you that your lunch isn’t good. “Your lunch isn’t good! Your mommy didn’t make the right kind of lunch. Here’s what you need to be eating!” and they plop some chicken nuggets in front of her.

A four-year-old kid is not gonna have any concept of her rights. She’s not gonna sit there and be able to argue with this big adult who is automatically conferred with authority just by being there. You’d be scared to death to not do what the adult says!

The North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services is stonewalling. Nobody will identify who this “agent” was. This agent is unnamed, unidentified, and nobody will claim, “Yeah, he was one of ours! Yeah, she was one of ours.” The feds, the state, nobody will claim ‘em. There’s one report that it was a grad student or something from the University of North Carolina. But nobody knows.

So everybody, says, “Oh, you won’t tell us who it was? Hmm. I wonder what you’re trying to hide?” The local congressman is asking to speak with the school administration. The school administration is refusing to talk to the local representative, won’t return the phone calls.

So, at any rate, I’m telling you one more time what this is all about. This is not accidental. This is not good intentions. This is not a bunch of adults from the federal government or Michelle (My Belle) Obama’s department, whatever, thinking they’re really gonna improve nutrition for kids. That’s not what this is about. That’s the vehicle. What this is about is control.

What this is about — honestly, folks — is separating young kids from their homes and their families by causing or creating doubt and distrust from the child to the parents. You’re a four-year-old little girl, an adult comes and tells you what’s in your lunch box is not good for you, “Well, who put it there? Your mommy did! That lunch isn’t healthy.” In fact, this little girl did go home and tell her mother or ask her mother why she didn’t make a good lunch. I’m paraphrasing, but something like that. It’s very easy for the government to pull this stuff off. It starts this early. You create distrust between the child and the family and total trust between the child and government.

How’s this kid gonna vote if they get away with this? If they keep treating this kid and others throughout the educational experience, how’s this kid gonna end up voting? How’s this kid gonna live? What is this kid gonna end up believing? “If it wasn’t for the government, I might-a been poisoned! If it wasn’t for the government, I might have starved to death! I might-a gotten a disease because my mommy didn’t know how to fix a good lunch.”

Don’t smirk, folks! .... Have the courage to admit you know that I am right about this! This is exactly how it’s done. Human history is replete with stories like this, tactics like this. ~ Rush Limbaugh (comments excerpted from):

Carolina Journal News Reports
Who Is the Mystery Food Monitor?
By Rick Henderson
Feb. 17th, 2012
http://www.carolinajournal.com/exclusives/display_exclusive.html?id=8777

[SNIP]

In the initial story published Feb. 14, CJ Associate Editor Sara Burrows reported that a preschooler at West Hoke was notified by someone at the school that the lunch she brought from home ­ a turkey sandwich with cheese on white whole wheat bread, a banana, a bag of chips, and a container of apple juice ­ did not meet USDA guidelines for nutritious meals. ....the government officials involved have provided sketchy ­ and sometimes conflicting ­ details.

For instance:

• DHHS says the person monitoring the lunches was not employed by the agency. In a statement (PDF), the agency said it is not department “policy to inspect, go through or question any child about food items brought from home. The facts we have gathered confirm that no DHHS employee or contractor did this.”

• Hoke County assistant superintendent Bob Barnes told the Fayetteville Observer that the person conducting the inspection was a DHHS employee.

• USDA spokesman Bruce Alexander said the person monitoring the lunches was a “North Carolina education staff member” [sic] reviewing the facility.

• Another report said, “The government inspector was from the Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale-Revised program at the FPG Child Development Institute at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. The program gives schools a grade based on standards that include USDA meal guidelines enforced by the N.C. Division of Early Childhood Development.”

Did the government worker know this precious little girl could safely drink mink?

Just wear bite proof gloves when you put them in the juicer.

The incident, in which the child’s lunch was deemed by someone at the school as failing to meet federal nutrition guidelines [established by Michelle Obama]

And Who The F#&k is she to be able to establish any sort of guidelines for anything! Does the FDA take their marching orders from her?

I believe there is a strong possibility that the “Agent” was indeed an SEIU union thug intent on intimidating parents who, by packing their child’s lunches, reduce the need for more dues paying SEIU union kitchen staff.

It seems to me that this is what should happen:
The mother of the child who was assaulted by an unknown unidentifiable person should sue the school district for not providing adequate security for her child...

Open-and-shut case! :-)

"And Who the F#&k is she (Moochelle Antoinette) to be able to establish any sort of guidelines for anything!"

She is enabled by the fact she is the busy little Igor to her husband's Frankenstein.

As I posted earlier.....Michelle has now assumed the reins of substantial power of her own in her "healthy eating" crusade. She's obviously enjoying the thrill of this control. (Remember, the school involved is worried about losing "points" for federal funds reimbursement if its lunch nutritional program isn't up to Michelle's snuff.

It appears the First Looty now has at her disposal a substantial number of bureaucratic minions and flying monkeys to carry forward her diktats across the fruited plain....thanks to the backing of her husband.

I hope this answers your question. The FDA is merely (and happily) taking its marching orders from this power-hungry Fasc%#@ist couple.

Oh, oh....another mother from the same school has now come forward stating the same thing happened to her daughter.

The school is slipping and sliding around this incident, also.

I suspect that the school receives money from the state for each school lunch provided. Every bag lunch, is money lost.

I suspect you are right! You know, I don't need a job, but I would offer to work for free if the govt were hiring someone to look into waste, skimming and fraud in govt-funded program like that. But I don't think they WANT to look into it.
