    President and first lady Michelle Obama's bid to cut kid obesity through new demands for more costly but healthier food is financially crushing the nation's school cafeterias, forcing staff cuts, boosting waste and killing plans to buy new equipment, according to an industry association. A new survey from the School Nutrition Association reported that 70 percent of the nation's lunch programs have been financially "harmed" by the new low-salt, low-sugar menus and that a stunning 93 percent report fewer students buying the chow. "Meeting these mandates has harmed the financial health of nearly 70 percent of school meal programs surveyed,...

    From the moment Michelle Obama burst on to the national scene back in 2008, she inspired a level of right wing loathing only slightly less intense than that visited on her husband. Indeed, there have been times it has seemed as though they hated her even more. ... [Snip] Obama has been an exemplary first lady and is extremely popular with the public, having shown good humor and style throughout her tenure; so it’s been very difficult for the right to find anything to criticize.That hasn’t stopped them, of course.

    One Marin County school district hopes to set a national example when it comes to healthy eating. Sausalito Marin City School District started serving only organic and GMO-free meals to students this week, becoming the first school district in the nation to do so. It's an extension of what is considered to be a successful pilot program begun in 2013 at Bayside MLK Jr. Academy in Marin City. The other school in the district, Willow Creek Academy in Sausalito, has now joined Bayside MLK Jr. Academy in installing a permanent program. “The results speak for themselves,” Steve Van Zant, superintendent...

    Bestselling author Edward Klein's bombshell claim that Michelle Obama and top White House adviser Valerie Jarrett have become so close they may live together in Europe after President Barack Obama finishes his second term has sent the rumor mill into overdrive. But Klein, who made the startling assertion on his website, told Newsmax TV on Friday that the relationship between the high-powered women definitely does not involve physical intimacy. "There's nothing sexual. A lot of people ask me that question. No, there's nothing sexual at all," Klein — author of "Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas" — said in...

    The Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA), originally passed in 2010 and heartily endorsed by First Lady Michelle Obama, is set to expire in September unless Congress acts to renew it. You may recall some of the details of that initiative including forcing all grains to be “whole grain rich” (whatever that means) and wiping out most of the salt in foods. Given the less then spectacular reception the program has received from schools – not to mention students – the GOP is looking at scaling back or at least modifying the rules. But The Hill was quick to characterize the...

    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...

    A new Rasmussen poll has found that First Lady Michelle Obama would be the strongest challenger to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton if she chose to run in 2016. According to Rasmussen: In a hypothetical matchup with Hillary Clinton, the putative Democratic presidential nominee in 2016, Obama earns 44% support from black voters to Clinton’s 36%. Among Likely Democratic Voters, it’s Clinton 56%, Obama 22%. That appears to be a better showing against Clinton than Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, the only other announced Democratic presidential candidate, makes at this point. Among all voters, Clinton earns 37% support to Obama’s 17%....

    Drudge really outdid himself the other day. He and his chief aggregator very effectively nailed America’s crisis in angst with their one page headline parse of the news. Just looking at America’s first couple, we see our First Lady giving her husband the SIDE EYE for which she now is famous among female pundits. Gotta love giving men the side eye. Hey, I’ve done it more than a few times when I didn’t feel very comfortable with what he was saying or doing. When we have Drudge showing Obama opening up on his fellow lib/Dems with friendly fire, we next...

    Michelle Obama gave a commencement address at Tuskegee University that was a ringing call for the graduates not to be discouraged by her whining. Much of the first lady’s speech was what is right and proper for a Tuskegee commencement, drawing on the story of the determination and skill of the Tuskegee Airmen. But she devoted a long passage to her own struggles that was off-key and characteristically self-pitying. Few women in modern America have been the focus of as much adulation as Michelle Obama, a Princeton University and Harvard Law School graduate who was making almost $270,000 by the...

    With poor results at home and abroad, Obamas will continue to stir the racial pot, distract from their reign of error and lead Americans on a very disturbing race to the bottom on the issue of race relations As the Obama administration mercifully begins to wind toward the end of its second term, both the President and the First Lady will continue to distract from their horrible record. Their favorite distraction is to claim racial discrimination exists in this nation and it needs to be corrected through government action. Even though we are not living in Mississippi in 1964, the...

    1.) Obama Dismisses Wealthy Americans As ‘Society’s Lottery Winners Speaking to a panel on poverty at Georgetown University, President Barack Obama dismissed wealthy Americans as “society’s lottery winners” and called on them to make a “modest investment” in the poor in the form of tax increases. You pretty much have more than you’ll ever be able to use and your family will ever be able to use. “There’s a fairness issue involved here. And by the way, if we were able to close that loophole, I could now invest in early childhood education to make a difference. That’s where the...

    If Michelle Obama decided to run for president in 2016, she would pose the most significant threat, among likely contenders, to Hillary Clinton's chances of winning the Democratic nomination, according to a new Rasmussen poll. A telephone survey of 1,000 likely voters conducted by the polling company found that in a hypothetical match-up between the current first lady and the former secretary of State, Clinton would best Obama 56 percent to 22 percent. That may seem like a significant margin, but according to the most recent RealClearPolitics polling average, Elizabeth Warren, a popular hypothetical challenger to Clinton, receives only 12.5...

    She’s baaaaaaaack. And she’s maaaaaad. First lady Michelle Obama delivered the commencement address at Tuskegee University last weekend. She’ll do it again next week at Ohio’s Oberlin College — the UC Berkeley of the Midwest, Ground Zero for racial grievance-mongering and fake hate crimes. Commencement FLOTUS is not the same first lady who shows up on Ellen or The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon wearing her pastel cardigan, Chuck Taylors, and a megawatt grin. No, this frowny-faced Michelle Obama talks and squawks like Al Sharpton in Jimmy Choo kitten heels. At Tuskegee, FLOTUS traded her affable TV persona for...

    Sometimes I think that Rush Limbaugh is the dumbest man in America. This happens whenever I take him at face value and forget that he is basically an entertainer with contempt for his audience. He will tell them anything. Last week, as if to validate my opinion of him, he went after Michelle Obama for playing the "race card" at the dedication of a museum in New York City. He described her as angry and complaining. The word he should have used was "right." I would even have settled for "interesting." After all, when the first lady of the United...

    First lady Michelle Obama may know the names of the world’s most famous clothes designers, and she may even know how to dance the Uptown Funk, but judging from her commencement speech to the graduates of a historically black university in Alabama, America’s race-baiting FLOTUS knows nothing about great American civil rights leader, accomplished scholar, and founder of Tuskegee University, the late Booker T. Washington. Michelle Obama’s remarks at the commencement sounded more like she was paying homage to W.E.B. DuBois, who believed in civil rights via agitation and political activism, than DuBois’ adversary, ex-slave Booker Taliaferro Washington, who wrote...

    Author and columnist Ann Coulter responded to Michelle Obama’s comments last weekend at Tuskegee University.Coulter said Michelle Obama is finally letting out her inner Rev. Jeremiah Wright… (G-ddam America). I think she’s just letting out her Reverend Wright, now. You know, a week before this, I’m really glad you played the segment of her saying, ‘It’s the first time in my adult life she’s proud of her country.” And then she’s indignant people might think she doesn’t lover her country. Last week she was claiming museums discriminate against and aren’t welcoming to minorities. What do they have do, be even...
