Feds to fine schools for not following Michelle Obama’s lunch rules

The federal government is taking steps to fine schools that do not comply with first lady Michelle Obama’s school lunch rules.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service issued a proposed rule Monday to codify parts of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which was championed by Mrs. Obama.

The regulation would punish schools and state departments with fines for “egregious or persistent disregard” for the lunch rules that imposed sodium and calorie limits and banned white grains.

EgyptAir hijacked plane: Suspected arrested after being branded an ‘idiot’ by Egyptian minister

An EgyptAir plane was hijacked on Tuesday by an man who threatened to blow himself up before demanding he was reunited with his estranged Cypriot wife.

Seif Eldin Mustafa was branded an “idiot” by the Egyptian foreign ministry after he seized control of the Alexandra-Cairo flight and had it diverted to Cyprus, where he issued a string of bizarre demands.

In addition to asking for a letter to be passed on to his ex-wife, Mustafa reportedly called for the release of several female prisoners in Egypt and asked for political asylum in Cyprus.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott Signs Bill to Defund Planned Parenthood Abortion Business

Florida Governor Rick Scott has signed a bill that would revoke taxpayer funding from the Planned Parenthood abortion business and any other clinics that also do abortions.

Earlier in March, the Florida Senate passed the bill, sending it to Scott’s desk. Like many other pieces of legislation introduced across the U.S. in recent months, the bill came in response to a series of undercover videos showing the Planned Parenthood abortion business selling aborted babies’ body parts.

The bill would defund the Planned Parenthood Florida affiliate of taxpayer dollars, and require abortion doctors to have hospital admitting privileges or patient transfer agreements. In addition, it would increase abortion clinic inspection requirements and licensing fees.

Minimum Wage Hike in DC Will Stifle Job Creation

Last summer, the District of Columbia increased its minimum wage to $10.50 an hour, which is currently the highest for any U.S. state or territory. This July, the District’s minimum wage will rise again to $11.50 an hour. Then, on Nov. 8, 2016 D.C. voters may consider an initiative to increase the minimum wage to $15 an hour by 2020, resulting in even more job losses, while business owners and consumers face higher prices.

Why do policymakers think such a high minimum wage may be appropriate? A recent article by the Brookings Institution points out:

The push for $15 per hour in D.C. and elsewhere hasn’t been based on complex statistical analysis. It started with a series of strikes by fast-food workers in 2012, who rallied around $15 as an audacious goal, but one that was round and easy to remember.

Tennessee PASTOR who was shot by police when he was able to pull a gun in the Capitol building

A Tennessee pastor has pulled a gun in the Capitol just months after he was banned from the building for disrupting Congress by yelling that he was a ‘prophet of God.’

Larry Russell Dawson was shot by police when he produced the weapon after it triggered metal detectors at the Capitol’s visitor center - hours after an active shooter drill in the government building.

The 66-year-old, who has been taken to hospital for surgery, was gunned down before he was able to fire the gun shortly before 3pm today. A female visitor was hit by shrapnel from the police’s gunfire.

FARC Leader: Meeting with Kerry in Cuba “Historic” and “Unthinkable”

BOGOTA – The top leader of Colombia’s FARC on Tuesday described the meeting the day before in Havana between the rebel group’s peace negotiators and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry as historic, “unprecedented and unthinkable.”

“(It was) a historic meeting with the U.S. secretary of state, something unprecedented and unthinkable. We received support from him in person for the peace process in Colombia, which fills us with optimism and makes us more certain that we’re moving toward peace,” Rodrigo Londoño, alias “Timochenko,” said in a video released Tuesday by the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, or FARC.

Kerry, who accompanied U.S. President Barack Obama on his historic three-day visit to Cuba, held separate meetings Monday with Colombian government and FARC negotiators, who have been engaged in a peace process in Havana since November 2012.

Islamic State crucifies Catholic priest on Good Friday

The Islamic State committed a grisly Good Friday commemoration, crucifying a Catholic priest.

The Rev. Thomas Uzhunnalil, a Salesian priest, was kidnapped in Yemen in early March during a raid on a nursing home run by Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity.

His execution by the Islamist sect, using the same method used by the Romans on Jesus and marked on Good Friday every year, was confirmed at the Easter Vigil Mass by Cardinal Christoph Schonborn of Vienna.

Calls for Fracking Bans Ignore Sound Science

Some politicians and environmental activists have been quick to call for blanket bans on hydraulic fracturing under claims that the process is poisoning America’s drinking water. Scientific evidence, from both government agencies and independent analyses, proves otherwise.

For instance, The Environmental Protection Agency’s last study, released in June of 2015 and the most comprehensive government study on fracking’s impact so far, clearly states that “we did not find evidence … [of] widespread, systemic impacts on drinking water resources in the United States.”

The EPA’s analysis is hardly the first study to refute the oft-repeated myth that fracking poses a serious threat to American drinking water. In 2009, the Department of Energy conducted a report that declared fracking “safe and effective.” In 2014, the Department of Energy released another study of the Marcellus Shale that found no evidence of fracking contaminating water supplies.

AG Loretta Lynch wants to let nation break law without consequences

As New York moves to decriminalize low-level offenses, arguing enforcement is “rigged against communities of color,” other large cities are coming under pressure from the Justice Department to do the same thing.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch has issued a warning to municipal and state judges across the country that their courts could lose federal funding if they don’t ease up on fines and arrest warrants for minor crimes involving poor offenders, indigent minorities in particular.

In lieu of fines and jail time, Lynch urges the nation’s 6,500 municipal courts to provide an avenue for offenders to perform “community service” or take advantage of “amnesty days,” whereby outstanding arrest warrants are cleared for nominal fees.

Blast in crowded Pakistan park kills at least 65

An explosion ripped through a crowded Pakistan park where Christians were celebrating Easter on Sunday, killing at least 65 people, officials told the Associated Press.

A Taliban faction, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, claimed responsibility for the attack and said Christians were the target of the blast, Reuters reported. The mostly-Muslim country has a small Christian community, accounting for less than two percent of Pakistan’s total population.

About 300 people were injured when the bomb detonated in the parking area of Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park in the eastern city of Lahore.

Belgium Fears Nuclear Plants Are Vulnerable

BRUSSELS — As a dragnet aimed at Islamic State operatives spiraled across Brussels and into at least five European countries on Friday, the authorities were also focusing on a narrower but increasingly alarming threat: the vulnerability of Belgium’s nuclear installations.

The investigation into this week’s deadly attacks in Brussels has prompted worries that the Islamic State is seeking to attack, infiltrate or sabotage nuclear installations or obtain nuclear or radioactive material. This is especially worrying in a country with a history of security lapses at its nuclear facilities, a weak intelligence apparatus and a deeply rooted terrorist network.

On Friday, the authorities stripped security badges from several workers at one of two plants where all nonessential employees had been sent home hours after the attacks at the Brussels airport and one of the city’s busiest subway stations three days earlier. Video footage of a top official at another Belgian nuclear facility was discovered last year in the apartment of a suspected militant linked to the extremists who unleashed the horror in Paris in November.

Utah Sheriff to BLM: “I will Deputize Every Man, Woman and Child” to Stop Federal Agents

A Utah sheriff has put out the word that he will not allow his county to be overrun by the unconstitutional Bureau of Land Management and the US Forest Service, and has gone so far as to warn the BLM that he will “deputize everyone and arrest all federal agents” should they enter his county in a similar manner to that of those in Nevada and Oregon.

Sheriff Marty Gleave has been serving the countsy he is in as sheriff for nearly 25 years. According to Gleave, all he has seen is that things “get progressively worse and worse and worse with the so-called land police.”

Gleave serves Piute County, which is the second smallest county by population in Utah. However, following the protests in Oregon, the arrests of many protesters at Bundy Ranch, including Cliven Bundy and the murder of LaVoy Finicum, Gleave addressed the Rural Caucus of the Utah State legislature on February 12, 2016.

Obama: ‘Socialist Theory or Capitalist - Just Decide What Works’

Whether it’s communist, socialist or capitalist, “Just choose from what works,” Pres. Obama told the Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative town hall in Buenos Aires, Argentina on Wednesday.

“Just decide what works,” Obama advised the leaders of tomorrow:

“I guess to make a broader point, so often in the past there’s been a sharp division between left and right, between capitalist and communist or socialist.  And especially in the Americas, that’s been a big debate, right?  Oh, you know, you’re a capitalist Yankee dog, and oh, you know, you’re some crazy communist that’s going to take away everybody’s property.
