  • Study Shows Michelle Os Anti-Obesity Campaign Is Failing To Make Kids Any Less Obese

    Its been more than six years since Michelle Obama kicked off her Lets Move! initiative to fight against childhood obesity, and children are as overweight as ever before. Thats according to a new study published Tuesday in the journal Obesity. A team led by Duke University scientist Asheley Skinner studied data from the CDCs National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) and found that the percentage of overweight and obese children between 2 and 19 years old has increased across the board since 1999. That comes as bad news for the Obama administration, which has sought to force children to...

    Its commencement season, America, and you know what that means: Michelle Obama is screwing up a bunch of ordinary peoples lives again. This year, the first lady has caused hassle and hardship for many families of seniors graduating from Jackson State University, reports local ABC affiliate WAPT-TV. To accommodate Obamas schedule, officials at the historically black school in the capital of Mississippi have rescheduled the graduation ceremony from April 30 to April 23. Theyve also moved the time twice, angry parents say.

    Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Mirandas award-winning Broadway musical, has faced criticism for an open casting call seeking only non-white actors. The hip-hop musical, which has been praised by Michelle Obama and which won a Grammy, features a diverse cast that reimagines the origin story of founding father Alexander Hamilton. The majority of the cast is multiethnic as well: African Americans play Aaron Burr, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, while a Chinese American portrays Hamiltons wife, Eliza. Miranda, the shows creator, is of Puerto Rican ancestry.

    First Lady Michelle Obama has been the victim of sexism, she said Wednesday, because men used to whistle at her while she walked down the street. As I got older, I found that men would whistle at me or make comments about how I looked as I walked down the street as if my body were their property, as if I were an object to be commented on instead of a full human being with thoughts and feelings of my own, Obama said during a speech at the Let Girls Learn initiative in Argentina. Obama, who launched Let Girls Learn...

    "I actually grew up in a neighborhood just like this it was on the South Side of Chicago," the First Lady said. "A place where people worked hard to support their families, and where families were close and loving and had strong values." Obama spoke about growing up in a very small apartment with her brother and her parents. She said she shared a room with her brother that was divided by a wooden partition. My room was so small that, when I held out my arms I could almost touch both walls at the same time.

Thanks to brilliant, fearless women like General Vaught, today, more than 200,000 women are serving our country in just about every role and rank, said Mrs. Obama. Theyre flying fighter jets, training new recruits; theyre graduating Army Ranger School--and I met those graduates. They are awesome. Fierce!

    A new photograph of galaxy NGC 4889 may look peaceful from such a great distance, but it’s actually home to one of the biggest black holes that astronomers have ever identified. The Hubble Space Telescope allowed scientists to capture photos of the galaxy, located in the Coma Cluster about 300 million light-years away. The supermassive black hole hidden away in NGC 4889 breaks all kinds of records, even though it is currently classified as dormant. So how big is it, exactly? Well, according to our best estimates, the supermassive black hole is roughly 21 billion times the size of the...

    Before Justice Scalia can even be given a Christian burial, they’re already looking for a way to replace him before the 2016 election In these darkest of days, the Obama regime is writing for society their very own ‘Bed Time stories’. None of their stories come with the proverbial ‘happy ending’. They disillusion, depress and seek for unsuspecting citizens to throw all caution to the wind. The latest chapter of Obama’s Bed Time Stories began to unravel the day before Valentine’s Day with the untimely death of the upstanding Justice Antonin Scalia.

The First Lady urged college pupils to work hard citing it was 'never too late' to do well as she opened up about Barack Obama's past in a candid interview. She also revealed she got better grades than the U.S. President. Speaking on The Real Daytime talk show, she said: 'Barack fooled around in high school. He's said it, he didn't take school seriously.

    First Lady Michelle Obama is thankful for her life. At the More magazine Impact Awards at the Newseum in Washington, D.C., the first lady credits her good life--and independence--to education. "Growing up -- and I remind these girls all the time -- I wasnt any smarter, I wasnt more talented than they are. But instead of having to work to support my family, or being married off to a grown man and forced to bear children before I was ready, I got to go to school so I could support myself, so I could make my own choices about my...

    The best line President Obama delivered in his 2015 State of the Union Address was not one written for him by his speechwriters. When he said he would not be on the ballot again, Republicans who had just taken over both Houses of Congress stood and applauded. Good naturedly, but with a bit of sarcasm, Mr. Obama reminded his opponents that he won both times he was on the national ballot. He was the first Democrat since Franklin D. Roosevelt to achieve back-to-back election victories. We need to acknowledge that he is a formidable political actor. He has defied the...

    Michelle serving up her trademark malicious menu of malcontent Okay, we get the picture the mainstream sends. First Lady Michelle Obama is so much in demand as a celebrity that she gets to sip tea at will with Prince Harry at Kensington Palace and merits an affectionate reunion with Barack bro Prime Minister David Cameron and his Mrs. on the steps of Downing Street. Oh, the powers protocol bestows on the wife, daughter and even the mother-in-law of a president. Just as the rarified gentry of the Victorian era, when matrons waited at home for other mavens to come calling,...

    The bill for the summer-work vacation of first lady Michelle Obama, accompanied to England and Italy by her daughters, mom, and staff, should easily top her entourage's 2010 trip to Spain that cost an eye-popping $467,000. While the White House didn't provide cost estimates for the week-long visit to London, Milan, Venice, and Vincenza, Italy, the State Department put lodging costs for just a couple nights in Venice at $128,781, according to Free Beacon, and Air Force charges based on a 2012 document for flying her group on past overseas trips indicate that this one will hit $243,000.
