On Same Day Their Spokesman’s Home Is Raided In Child Porn Sting, Subway Joins Forces With Michelle Obama, Will Spend $41 Million Pushing Her “Healthy” Food Menu…

imrs.php-2

Nice timing, eh?

Via WaPo:

In a direct response to Michelle Obama’s declared war on childhood obesity, another food company has changed its business practices and received her blessing. Subway restaurants joined her healthy eating initiative Thursday with a pledge to only include the most nutritious foods on its kids menu and meet the restrictions the federal government has placed on school lunches to include apples on the side and low-fat or nonfat milk or water as a beverage.

To mark the occasion, the first lady visited a Subway sandwich shop a few blocks from the White House, and had lunch and a news conference there with three athletes who endorse the chain and a group of students and parents from Bancroft and Harriett Tubman Elementary Schools in the District.

Before eating a turkey sandwich on wheat stacked with banana peppers, green peppers and spinach, Obama praised Subway for “actually working to get kids excited about eating their vegetables.”

“I asked companies to stop targeting kids with unhealthy products,” Obama said. “Now as parents and consumers — we actually have to buy their [healthier] products. We need to vote with our wallets. That’s how we get even more fresh food in our communities.”

Subway has pledged to spend $41 million over three years promoting its healthier kids menu with commercials and marketing campaigns, which will include the Muppets and the theme “playtime powered by veggies.” It has also stocked the kids menu with fruit, vegetables, non-sugary drinks and lean diary products. Employees will encourage children to pile the vegetables high, a company spokesman said.

Hillary Campaign Dumps Talking Points In Favor Of Having All Supporters Read From The Same Script…

Hillary Rodham Clinton

And we thought the Obamabots were brainless drones.

Via WaPo:

One day in May, operatives from a Washington-based super PAC gathered New Hampshire mayors, state representatives and local politicos at St. Anselm College for a day of training.

They rehearsed their personal tales of how they met Hillary Rodham Clinton and why they support her for president. They sharpened their defenses of her record as secretary of state. They scripted their arguments for why the Democratic front-runner has been “a lifetime champion of income opportunity.” And they polished their on-camera presentations in a series of mock interviews.

The objective of the sessions: to nurture a seemingly grass roots echo chamber of Clinton supporters reading from the same script across the communities that dot New Hampshire, a critical state that hosts the nation’s first presidential primary.

The super PAC, called Correct the Record, convened similar talking-point tutorials and media-training classes in May and June in three other early voting states — Iowa, South Carolina and Nevada — as well as sessions earlier this spring in California.

Presidential campaigns have for decades fed talking points to surrogates who appear on national television or introduce candidates on the stump. But the effort to script and train local supporters is unusually ambitious and illustrates the extent to which the Clinton campaign and its web of sanctioned, allied super PACs are leaving nothing to chance. […]

But asking local supporters to use talking points could undermine the organic nature of grass-roots political interactions. No longer can a journalist call up a state representative in Iowa and expect to hear his or her personal, unvarnished take on Clinton — nor can a Rotary Club member watch a fellow small-business owner talk about Clinton at their monthly luncheon — without suspecting he or she is reading from a script.

The super PAC’s effort also comes as Clinton struggles on the campaign trail to appear accessible and genuine. Some Democrats have long believed Clinton sounds too scripted on the stump, especially compared to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), her insurgent primary rival whose authenticity and liberal message are drawing thousands of Democrats to his rallies.

San Francisco Sheriff Defends Releasing Illegal Immigrant Who Killed Woman On Sightseeing Pier…

649323_1280x720

Infuriating to say the least.

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – San Francisco Sheriff Ross Mirkarimi has defended his office’s decision to release a Mexican man who was in the U.S. illegally and who is now suspected in the killing of a woman at a sightseeing pier.

Mirkarimi said that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency should earlier have issued an arrest warrant for Francisco Sanchez.

“ICE knew that he had been deported five times,” Mirkarimi said. “You would have thought he met a threshold that he required a court order or a warrant. They did not do that.”

Prosecutors on Monday charged Sanchez with murder in the death of Kathryn Steinle, who was shot and killed last Wednesday as she and her father took a walk on the popular Pier 14.

Steinle’s killing has brought criticism down on this liberal city because Sanchez had been deported repeatedly and was out on the streets after San Francisco officials disregarded a request from immigration authorities to keep him locked up.

San Francisco is one of dozens of cities and counties across the country that do not fully cooperate with federal immigration authorities. The city goes so far as to promote itself as a “sanctuary” for people in the country illegally.

In a jailhouse interview with a TV station, Sanchez, a 45-year-old repeat drug offender, appeared to confirm that he came to the city because of its status as a sanctuary.

“Most of the blame should fall squarely on the shoulders of the San Francisco sheriff, because his department had custody of him and made the choice to let him go without notifying ICE,” said Jessica Vaughan, director of policy studies at the Washington-based Center for Immigration Studies, which wants tougher immigration enforcement.

Illegal Alien Who Caused Crash That Nearly Killed Family In AZ Deported 6 Times In 3 Years

Officials say a 29-year-old man who caused a motor vehicle accident that nearly killed an Arizona family on Independence Day is an illegal immigrant who has been deported six times.

Sheriff’s deputies in Maricopa, Arizona, say Manuel Perez-Vasquez was under the influence of drugs when he drove head-on in the opposing lane of traffic on a road in the town about 30 miles south of Phoenix, Fox10Phoenix reported.

A woman and her two small children were traveling toward Perez-Vasquez when the mother noticed him driving in the wrong lane.

“She sees a car coming head on… so she immediately pulls over as far as she could off the side of the road and this car still comes and sideswipes [her]… totaling her car,” Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu told the station.

Report: 45 ISIS Fighters Die Breaking Ramadan Fast After Eating Poisoned Iftar Meal…

Feel good story of the day.

Via Haaretz:

Iraqi media reported on Tuesday that 45 Islamic State fighters died after eating a Ramadan fast-breaking meal in the city of Mosul in Iraq.

Citing the spokesman of the Kurdish Democratic Party, reports said that it was unclear if it was a case of deliberate poisoning or food poisoning.

According to the Kurdish party spokesman, 145 ISIS fighters participated in the iftar meal, and 45 of them died a short time later.

Mosul, which had a population of over 1 million people, was captured by Islamic State fighters in June and is the largest city in the group’s self-declared caliphate, a stretch of territory that straddles the border between northern Iraq and eastern Syria.

This was not the first time ISIS reportedly suffered casualties as a result of poisoned food. In November, dozens of ISIS fighters died after Free Syrian Army militants infiltrated their base in Syria, posed as chefs, and poisoned their lunches, British media reported at the time.

Via CNS News:

Only 19 percent of American adults know that the First Amendment to the Bill of Rights guarantees the freedom of religion, according to a new survey by the Newseum Institute.

Only 10 percent know the First Amendment guarantees the freedom of the press.

And 33 percent of Americans have no idea at all what rights the First Amendment guarantees.

The First Amendment says: “Congress shall make no law resepecting an establishment of religion, or abridging the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

The Newseum Institute survey conducted by Dr. Ken Dautrich, president of the Stats Group, interviewed 1,002 American adults from May 14 through 23. The survey had a margin of error of +/- 3.2 percentage points.

Baltimore Authorities Combing Evidence For “Destruction Zone” Participants, Vows No Impunity…

Would be easier to exclude those that didn’t participate.

Via Baltimore Sun

More than two months after Baltimore erupted in rioting, teams of police and federal investigators are still combing evidence in a hunt for those responsible for the destruction and looting.

The Baltimore Police Department has formed a task force to identify suspects, while the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the Drug Enforcement Administration have called in additional agents to handle the work.

“The cases are particularly important because many of the people who were involved in committing these crimes acted with the assumption that they had impunity,” said Rod J. Rosenstein, the U.S. attorney for Maryland. “There is a sense of urgency.” […]

More than 200 people were taken into custody and held in jail for close to two days under an emergency rule imposed by the governor, but half had to be let go because police had not filed charging papers. They joined 35 who were arrested when protests downtown became violent April 25.[..]

Among them is Wayne Gray, who said he took his 2-year-old son to a protest in April. Representing himself recently in District Court, Gray, 47, wondered aloud how he had ended up in front of a judge while many fellow protesters had gone free.

Called to testify, Officer Garfield O’Toole, a member of the Police Department’s SWAT team, described a chaotic scene during the protest at Pratt and Howard streets.

A large crowd had gathered, and officers formed a long line. O’Toole’s team was ordered by commanders to pull three individuals back from the crowd and they were taken to a police transport wagon.

Gray noted that there was a large crowd and asked the officer, “Why just me?”

Officer Israel Villodas, another member of a tactical extraction team, testified that many in the crowd did not move even as orders to disperse were coming from the police helicopter and officers with bullhorns on the ground.

Judge Jack I. Lesser found Gray guilty of disorderly conduct and imposed a 10-day jail sentence. Gray begged not to be taken into custody right away, saying he needed to make arrangements for his son to be picked up from day care, move the car he drove to the courthouse and get his medications.

Lesser ordered him sent straight to jail.

“I made a mistake and misinterpreted my constitutional right,” Gray said as he was handcuffed by sheriff’s deputies.
