Michelle Obama Thinks Beyoncé Is ‘A Role Model for Young Girls around the World’

The first lady tweeted happy birthday to Beyoncé and thanked her for being such a great role model. What is she supposed to be modeling? Michelle Obama sent a birthday tweet to superstar Beyoncé, thanking her for being a great role model for young girls. Why? Do young girls need guidance to start early so they can become adult striptease dancers some day? The story about this at The Blaze shows that the first lady received some pushback on Twitter, including some obvious photographic Read more […]

The Healthy Wisdom in the Sick Threat Michelle Obama Made

Michelle Obama tells people they need to eat healthy if they don’t want to be messed with by the Federal government. Michelle Obama decided to deliver a message via an interview in Cooking Light magazine. As the Washington Times reported: First lady Michelle Obama believes Americans can keep the federal government from meddling with their lives by eating healthy foods and maintaining an active lifestyle. In an interview with Cooking Light magazine published Monday, Mrs. Obama said the Read more […]

Michelle Obama Food Plan Threatens Tutoring Program

The Michelle Obama food plan bars “junk food” from being sold at school events. I’m sure the FLOTUS did not set up a system to eliminate the tutoring of students. (If they had actually aimed for such a goal they would have failed somehow.) Nevertheless, because of her interference with the various local school systems, by her Federal rules, all sorts of cascading consequences are still playing out. One such consequence is being felt at a school in South Carolina. The Daily Caller reports, A Read more […]

School District Quits Michelle Obama Lunch Program

This is not the first time a school district has quit what has been promoted as the Michelle Obama lunch program, but the fact that an Illinois school district is opting out of the system tells you it is truly an intolerable food arrangement. The state’s second largest school district has started the school year with a new look for its lunch menu, after opting out of the National School Lunch Program and forfeiting nearly $1 million in federal funding, to gain more freedom in the food it serves Read more […]

School Nutrition Association “Sells Its Soul to the Devil” — Opposes Michelle Obama on School Lunch

Stanley Garnett resigned from the SNA in protest, saying, “They sold their souls to the devil.” By “devil” he meant food corporations which provide income to the SNA. While this relationship to food companies could appear to be a conflict of interest, there are more plausible reasons why the SNA completely changed their minds and reversed themselves on the new school lunches that Michelle Obama is championing. Victor Skinner explains on the EAGnews blog, SNA officials rightly point Read more […]

What Does “Stealth Health” Teach Us About Michelle Obama’s School Lunch & Labeling Changes?

In the media, the conflict is portrayed as being between Michelle Obama and the food companies. The poor customer wants to do the right thing, but the food companies make it hard. But that’s not how it really works. Sadly, the Wall Street Journal story is behind a pay wall, but a summary is posted at Newser.com: “Fast Food’s New Trend: ‘Stealth Health.’” In the minds of customers, healthy food often means less-tasty food. At the same time, however, many clamor for healthier options. Read more […]

Michelle Obama’s Last Food Stand: Changes in School Lunches Are “Unacceptable”

We have reported on the pushback from the Republican party, as well as from the schools and the students. Michelle Obama is not giving in to popular demand. According to Fox News, First lady Michelle Obama is striking back at House Republicans who are trying to weaken healthier school meal standards, saying any effort to roll back the guidelines is “unacceptable.” The rules set by Congress and the administration over the last several years require more fruits, vegetables and whole grains in the Read more […]

Food Fight; Food Rebellion! Schools Pushing Against Michelle Obama’s “Healthy” Food Regime

The idea that “whole grain” foods are good for you is taken for granted by our government-health complex. But there are real reasons to question it. The bottom line is that it still all turns into sugar by the time what we eat is absorbed into our blood stream. Maybe you disagree with my assessment. But the Federal Government has decided that the various scientific paradigms being discussed throughout the country don’t matter. They are telling us what to eat. And the kids don’t like Read more […]

Michelle Obama’s Chinese Education Theater Shows Infotainment Politics

People write books about education in the United States and I’m sure they write them about China. Writing such a work involves research, statistics, demographics, and many other sources of study and information. If one looks closely at a few schools in order to draw conclusions about education in a country, one has to be careful to make sure that one chooses schools that are representative of the rest, not exceptional. And then politicians get together and act like they are doing serious research Read more […]

Michelle Obama’s Nutritional Bait And Switch

CNS News thought this was newsworthy because Michelle Obama said that mothers in America are “confused,” “bewildered,” and “defeated” by grocery shopping. She was referring to food labels and advocating better ones. I’m as opposed to the FLOTUS and her ambitious, greedy ways as anyone, but I think we should give her speech a bit more attention to figure out what is going on with our government and our grocery shopping. (Also, to give the devil her due: kudos to Michelle for affirming Read more […]

Shocker: Michelle Obama Honestly Called For Obamacare “Sacrifice” In 2008

Obama went all over the country assuring people that, under his plan, if they wanted to keep their doctor, they could keep their doctor; and if they wanted to keep their plan, they could keep their plan. But back in 2008, according to Breitbart, there is evidence that Michelle Obama wanted to level with the American people to some extent. She took her campaign’s “yes we can” mantra and applied it to affording Obamacare: It’s going to cost us something as a society to say, ‘We can’t Read more […]
