Of course, I know that, but what about it has "NOT ended well" or am I missing the sarcasm?

It's amazing that Rondeau can keep the meaningless birtherism up. And the breathless reporting about nothing. She has real staying power as an irrelevance.

Realist, I think Sam means that because President Obama mocked Donald, that was the precipitant for his running for president. Therefore, if we keep mocking Rharon, will she run for the Senate?

:thumbs: Thanks Orlylicious, your first sentence is spot on! :thumbs:

I thought Trump's epic humiliation by the uppity black guy at that dinner was what drove him to have such a strong campaign with his victory as the tragic culmination. Oh, how we laughed! :lol: ... but we're not laughing now :o :crying:

Apologies if my comment was more cryptic than intended.

As for Rondeau, I couldn't care less what that insignificant harpie does.

Rondeau is going to love this...not. Trump wants to replace SNAP with food boxes:

Trump Wants to Replace Food Stamps for Impoverished Americans With Food Boxes to Save Money
The Trump administration wants to scrap food stamps for low-income Americans and replace them with boxes of non-perishable food items selected by the government, Politico reported Monday.

The proposal was touted by White House budget director Mick Mulvaney and included in the White House fiscal budget, released Monday. According to the administration, it could save the federal government $129 billion over the next decade.

Mulvaney compared the measure to start-up meal delivery company Blue Apron.
Just think Sharon, soon you will be getting crappy government cheese, peanut butter, potted mystery meat, and powdered milk just like back in the good ole days!

Could you imagine the lobbying for what gets included and what does not? Not to mention how much money it would take out of local communities, stripping grocery stores of much needed revenue and increasing dependency on assistance?

P&E: Sharyl Attkisson Reports “Shocking” Allegations of Government Spying:
CLAIMS WIDESPREAD SURVEILLANCE “A PRACTICE” FOR 1-2 DECADES

In an update on her “computer intrusion” lawsuit against the federal government published on her Facebook page on Friday, investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson said that new evidence coming to light is proving to be “shocking.”

* * *

Attkisson added that it appears that government surveillance of citizens has been occurring “for the past ten or 20 years through a system that had very little oversight,” an observation which supports data collected by former NSA and CIA contractor Dennis Montgomery and provided to the FBI during closed-door testimony more than two years ago.

According to Montgomery’s attorney, Larry Klayman, and later, Obama birth certificate investigator Mike Zullo, the FBI, under the direction of then-Special Counsel James Baker and James B. Comey, did not act upon the data Montgomery provided in exchange for two immunity agreements.
Rondeau's having Zullo withdrawal, so she inserts him into an unrelated story.

P&E: Why Did Obama Choose This Artist to Paint His Portrait?:
“SORT-OF A PLAY ON THE ‘KILL-WHITEY’ THING”

On October 13 of last year, the “Newsdesk” at The Smithsonian Institution announced that two artists had been commissioned to paint the official portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama, respectively, selected by them personally.

Barack Obama chose Kehinde Wiley, who The Smithsonian said “has frequently portrayed young African American men wearing the latest in hip-hop street fashion. His rich, highly saturated color palette and his use of decorative patterns complement his realistic, yet expressive, likenesses. The theatrical poses and props Wiley assigns to his subjects make references to iconic portraits of powerful figures by Western artists.”

* * *

In a 2012 New York Magazine article in which the author interviewed Wiley while in his Beijing stuido, Wiley is said to be homosexual and have a father from Africa. [Editor’s Note: The article contains language which some readers will find offensive.]

Obama’s life narrative states that his father was from Kenya. Neither man reportedly knew his father as a child.

Ironically, Wiley’s father’s last name is reported to be “Obot.”

* * *

On Tuesday afternoon, The Post & Email reached out to one of the media contacts at The Smithsonian [ . . . ] with the following email:
I understand that The Smithsonian announced last fall that the above artist was “chosen” to paint Barack Obama’s official portrait.

[ * * * ]

Another report linked to yours states that Obama himself made that choice.

[ * * * ]

Are you aware that Wiley has painted black women holding the severed heads of white women? Were you aware of it when the “choice” was made?

Are you aware that Mr. Wiley explained the motivation behind those paintings by saying, according to New York Magazine, ” “It’s sort of a play on the ‘kill whitey’ thing,”

[ * * * ]

What is The Smithsonian’s official stance on the “choice” that was made? What if the roles were reversed and those paintings showed a white woman holding the decapitated head of a black woman?
As of the time of publication, we have received no response to our inquiry.
Blowing Rondeau off continues to be newsworthy! And almost as exciting as when the New York Public Library ignored Rondeau!

Sharon should start worrying about her SNAP funds which a generous America pays her. And leave alone people who have never done her harm.

If Trump and his ilk could fuck her over, they would. But the very people she detests -- Democrats -- will protect her.

Ingrate and hypocrite come to mind. As well as racist.

You know, Sharon, if you got off your very very low horse and started writing about the upcoming SNAP changes, you might do some good. YOu know the system, and its going to affect YOU. Its not like Walt or the Birther brigade is going to help you at all.

P&E: Is Politico’s “Fake-News” Story Fake News?:
U.S. SENATE CANDIDATE NEVER CLAIMED NEWSPAPER “ENDORSEMENT”

On Wednesday morning, the hashtag “Kelli Ward” began trending on Twitter in connection with an article posted by Politico claiming that the Arizona U.S. Senate candidate “touts endorsement from fake-news site.”

The article stated that last October 28, Ward “posted a link on her campaign website and blasted out a Facebook post, quoting extensively from a column in the Arizona Monitor.”

* * *

The Post & Email was not unable to determine whether or not Ward linked to the post from her campaign website.

Apparently having seen the Politico article, the “Arizona Monitor” issued a response which states, in part:
First off, we are not connected with the Kelli Ward campaign, the Republican Party, or anyone else and are truly an independent organization. Secondly, we do not profess to be a professional news organization on par with FOX News or, obviously, CNN. Our purpose is to simply bring attention to issues and stories the local news in Arizona is not covering or covering with an unfair bias. We are a partisan site and do not profess to be unbiased. After all, since the mainstream media is so left wing, somebody as to defend the far-right and conservatives.
The Post & Email submitted a comment under Politico’s article stating,
The Arizona Monitor responds that it never professed to be a news site . . . .
Unlike when we first logged on to the “Arizona Monitor["] website from the url on Ward’s Facebook page, the site appears to be experiencing technical problems . . . .

Attempting to access other areas of the site from the rebuttal article demonstrates that the navigational tabs yield the same error message . . . .

As of press time at 12:33 p.m. EST, “Kelli Ward” is no longer trending on Twitter.
The Arizona Monitor said "we do not profess to be a professional news organization on par with FOX News," which Rondeau misread as "never professed to be a news site." :roll:

“PUT MUELLER UNDER INVESTIGATION”

As he does almost daily, Dr. Jerome Corsi, Infowars Washington, DC Bureau Chief, is speaking Wednesday afternoon on a number of issues from the CIA to the Middle East to the White House’s domestic agenda.
Yet today's braying is newsworthy!

P&E: Constitutional Educator: FISA Court Does Not Require “Probable Cause”:
SHOW DISCUSSES “FBI MISCONDUCT,” FOURTH AMENDMENT VIOLATIONS

Constitutional attorney, former Florida prosecutor, disabled Army veteran, speaker and educator KrisAnne Hall said during the opening of her radio show on February 10 that the FISA court, which she believes is “unconstitutional” on its face for its secrecy, does not require a “probable cause” standard in order to issue a surveillance warrant to a requester.
Rondeau's swallowing whatever Hall's serving is newsworthy! E.g.:
Just before the first break at the 13:09 mark, KrisAnne made the point that the FISA court’s powers arose from the 2001 Patriot Act passed by Congress in the wake of the 9-11 attacks.
FISA, which established the courts, was passed in 1978.

The ACLU has explained it a bit more clearly:
A 1978 law called the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) created an exception to the Fourth Amendment's requirement for probable cause when the purpose of a wiretap or search was to gather foreign intelligence. The rationale was that since the search was not conducted for the purpose of gathering evidence to put someone on trial, the standards could be loosened. In a stark demonstration of why it can be dangerous to create exceptions to fundamental rights, however, the Patriot Act expanded this once-narrow exception to cover wiretaps and searches that DO collect evidence for regular domestic criminal cases. FISA previously allowed searches only if the primary purpose was to gather foreign intelligence. But the Patriot Act changes the law to allow searches when "a significant purpose" is intelligence. That lets the government circumvent the Constitution's probable cause requirement even when its main goal is ordinary law enforcement.

The eagerness of many in law enforcement to dispense with the requirements of the Fourth Amendment was revealed in August 2002 by the secret court that oversees domestic intelligence spying (the "FISA Court"). Making public one of its opinions for the first time in history, the court revealed that it had rejected an attempt by the Bush Administration to allow criminal prosecutors to use intelligence warrants to evade the Fourth Amendment entirely. The court also noted that agents applying for warrants had regularly filed false and misleading information.

Oh Bob, you're so unfair! How could Rondeau be expected to work out that Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act courts were created by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act? She's a professional journalist, not a law school professor! Sometimes she simply has to rely on the integrity, honesty and credibility of her sources.

Yes, we're running out of material. That's because you can only mock the same warmed-over nonsense so many different ways before the well of creativity runs dry.

I checked the Alexa rankings for "thepostemail.com." Based on numbers for sites where I have good data, she's ranked about #1.5 million globally. I'd estimate she's getting about 10,000 to 15,000 page views a month. She might have as many as 1,000 regular readers but the actual number could be a bit less.

By comparison, I-UV.com, the New Age woo site where HATJ's deluded followers seem to congregate, is ranked #161,984 globally. Based on a couple of other sites I'm familiar with, that is probably pulling in about 500,000 productive page views (i.e., not the home page) a month. That would imply perhaps 10,000 unique visitors. They're doing a lot more traffic than TheFogbow.com, which is ranked at 548,164, or Quatloos, which is #706,276. Hell, I-UV is probably getting more traffic than TheFogbow and Quatloos together.

Yeah, keeping an eye on I-UV.com is a little outside our normal interest area once Heather and Randy are off on their excellent prison adventure, but it certainly seems to have a surprising amount of traffic. And the avalanche of woo is certainly a worthy target for mockery.

I put a messege on her comment page that if she started talking about the SNAP changes she might do some good, and she knows the system and it will affect her. That was a week or 2 ago. Instead she is continuing to talk about this bullshit.

And yeah, she's boring as hell. All she has is the conceit of being a reporter.
