Shock may best describe the Chicago Cabal’s reaction to recent events as the narratives these political operatives spent a lifetime constructing lie in tatters, revealing an ugly reality long held at bay.

Sometime around 9 p.m. Monday, the State Department will release the next batch of Hillary Clinton’s emails, and hundreds of reporters will comb through the 7,000 pages looking to be the first to find a story. These reporters are not amused by the late delivery of documents.
The State Department said the delayed release of Clinton’s emails happened because it has identified another 150 containing classified information that must be redacted before the release.
New York Times political reporter Michael Barbaro complained that it was not professional for a government agency to conduct a data dump after typical business hours. A number of reporters sounded off on Twitter to criticize “the most transparent administration ever” for not giving reporters time to read through the emails and process the information before their deadlines.
Who at State sets that 9 pm time for document release, which seems antithetical to transparency/accountability https://t.co/Y8Dx6mqhHA

I’m serious: News orgs and good government groups can’t compel a judge to order @statedept to literally release Clinton emails in daylight?

Michelle Obama’s anti-obesity group is claiming Americans “clearly support” the First Lady’s healthy school lunch rules, despite a barrage of negative complaints about the standards on social media.
“Let’s Move” attempted to get ahead of negative press about the lunches with the start of the school year, by posting a poll that claims 86 percent of Americans support the first lady’s healthy rules. But when schools began to reopen across the country over the past week, students resumed posting photos of unappetizing fare and meager portions in the lunchroom, with the hash tag #ThanksMichelleObama.
“As the school bells begin to ring welcoming in the next school year, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation released a new national survey demonstrating that Americans clearly support keeping school meals healthy,” Let’s Move said.
“[T]he American public has noticed and appreciated the healthier school meal standards as the survey shows that 67 percent say the nutritional quality of food in their local schools is excellent or good, which is up from only 26 percent in 2010 before the standards were put into place,” they said.
The 86 percent figure came from a question that asked in general terms whether fruits and vegetables should be served in school.
“As you may know, there are requirements such as providing fruits and vegetables and whole grain-rich foods that all meals served in public school cafeterias have to meet,” the survey read. “Do you think these requirements should be strengthened, kept the same, or lowered?”
Another question contributing to the survey’s favorable view of Mrs. Obama’s rules asked: “Would you say it is very important, somewhat important, not too important, or not at all important to serve nutritious foods in schools to support children’s health and ensure they are ready to learn and be successful?”
Another question was phrased as “millions of kids are getting more of the fruits, vegetables, and whole grains they need to be healthy” because of the rules.
“After hearing this, do you strongly support, somewhat support, somewhat oppose, or strongly oppose these new nutritional requirements?” the survey asked. Fifty-eight percent then said that they strongly support the standards.
Meanwhile, nearly half of the respondents (47 percent) said the food served in school cafeterias has little to do with childhood obesity.
Other findings from the survey found that nine out of 10 Americans said “nutrition standards in school meals are important,” and 91 percent said kids need access to safe drinking water in schools.
The survey was based on responses from 1,206 adults. Only 15 percent said they knew a “great deal” about the new requirements, while 41 percent said they knew some, 28 percent said “not too much,” and 11 percent said they knew nothing at all.
Forty percent of respondents were Democrats, compared to 34 percent Republicans, and 7 percent of independents who lean Democrat.
The poll was conducted by the WK Kellogg Foundation, which donated $5,000 to President Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012.
The survey results stand in stark contrast to the complaints of students and school officials, who say students are avoiding cafeteria food as a result of the rules.
A recent survey by the Student Nutritional Association, which supports healthy requirements for school lunches but seeks greater flexibility with government-mandated standards, found that participation in the school lunch program is down, food waste is up, and 80 percent of school districts have taken steps to offset financial losses as a result of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act.
“A self-serving fiction.”
It’s been 70 years since the liberation of the Auschwitz extermination camp, and the anniversary may mark the last of the war-crimes trials from World War II.

“Why this network felt the need, they were so desperate for a few rating points which really didn’t come around anyway…”
Fair point, or misdirected outrage? In the wake of the assassination of Deputy Darren Goforth (and the live-televised murders of Alison Parker and Adam Ward), Morning Joe hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski asked Amy Holmes where this open-season mentality started. Scarborough laid the blame on cable news, with its incendiary and often misinformed coverage […]
(The Local) The Austrian city of Salzburg has unveiled its own gay-themed pedestrian traffic lights after the flashing signals specially installed in Vienna for the Eurovision Song Contest proved a hit.
Instead of the usual stick man, the special lights at pedestrian crossings show two figures – either a man or a woman, two men or two women, holding hands, together with a little heart symbol.

Bible in a Year: Genesis 36-38; Matthew 10:21-42
Dave Branon My friend Marcia, the director of the Jamaica Christian School for the Deaf, recently illustrated an important way to look at things. In a newsletter article she titled “A Blessed Start,” she pointed out that for the first time in 7 years the school began the new year with a surplus. And what was that surplus? A thousand dollars in the bank? No. Enough school supplies for the year? No. It was simply this: A month’s supply of food in the cupboard.
When you’re in charge of feeding 30 hungry kids on a shoestring budget, that’s big! She accompanied her note with this verse from 1 Chronicles 16:34, “Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.”
Year after year Marcia trusts God to provide for the children and staff at her school. She never has much—whether it’s water or food or school supplies. Yet she is always grateful for what God sends, and she is faithful to believe that He will continue to provide.
As we begin a new year, do we have faith in God’s provision? To do so is to take our Savior at His word when He said, “Do not worry about your life . . . . Do not worry about tomorrow” (Matt. 6:25,34).
Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrow; it empties today of its strength. —Corrie ten Boom
Insight In today’s passage, we read our Lord’s admonition to trust in God’s provision instead of worrying. Managing our troubles by faith one day at a time is wise counsel indeed: “Sufficient for the day is its own trouble” (v.34). Leaving our struggles in God’s hands is a key to peaceful living.
