She asks a question that the article she mentions cleary answers (not to mention a bunch of other news sources).

https://www.commercialappeal.com/story/ ... 988805002/
A Shelby County grand jury foreperson has been removed for "good cause" after failing to follow proper procedure, according to officials.

On July 31, Mary Thomas allowed 12 jurors and five alternate jurors to enter the grand jury room during court proceedings. All 17 jurors voted on proposed indictments, although only 12 are permitted to enter the grand jury room and participate.

An alternate juror informed Judge John Campbell of Thomas' improper procedure. Judge Campbell and Judge Mark Ward met with Thomas, who admitted to the mistake.

The courtroom error affected 55 indictments connected to Operation Jack Rabbit, a drug-busting initiative created by the Memphis Police Department in January 2017.

Shelby County District Attorney General Amy Weirich released a statement Monday saying all indictments filed on July 31 will be dismissed and replaced by indictments from a grand jury at a later date.
In short, she failed to follow proper procedure.

P&E: Trump Rings in the New Year on Twitter:
“CALM DOWN AND ENJOY THE RIDE”

On Monday night, the White House tweeted a New Year’s greeting narrated by President Trump in which he summarized what he considers his administration’s key 2018 accomplishments.

* * *

Shortly after 8:00 a.m. EST Tuesday, Trump tweeted a personal new year’s message directed to “everyone, including the haters and the fake news media!” “2019 will be a fantastic year for those not suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome,” he added. “Just calm down and enjoy the ride, great things are happening for our country!”

The Urban Dictionary’s “top definition” of “Trump Derangement Syndrome” (TDS) is “a mental condition in which a person has been driven effectively insane due to their dislike of Donald Trump, to the point at which they will abandon all logic and reason.”

A second definition appearing below the first dated two days before Trump’s inauguration using British spelling states TDS is “The latest attempt by the alt-right to demonise anybody who thinks that maybe putting a reality TV star who’s declared bankruptcy six times in charge of the country might not have been the best idea.”

P&E: Former Obama Official Calls out “Republicans” Claiming Obama “not Born in America”:
WITHOUT MENTIONING FRAUDULENT BIRTH CERTIFICATE, LIFE NARRATIVE

In a discussion on FNC’s “The Five” on Thursday about incivility in politics, former Obama Deputy State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf became indignant when recalling that many “Republicans” had claimed that Barack Obama was “not actually born in America.”

* * *

Regular co-host Greg Gutfeld, who joined in the discussion, has more than once referred to Obama as “Kenyan-born,” a statement made by several mainstream media outlets prior to Obama’s successful 2008 presidential candidacy.

[Usual birther :yankyank: snipped.]

Nevertheless, Obama served two four-year terms in the White House, and anyone questioning his eligibility, inconsistent life narrative, or his wife’s stating that his “home country” is, in fact, “Kenya,” has been termed a “racist,” an adjective Harf readily utilized to express her indignation at what she saw as mean-spirited commentary about Barack and Michelle Obama while they were in the White House.

* * *

Others besides Harf from the Obama regime have criticized anyone who questioned Obama’s birthplace but never mentioned the outcome of the investigation overseen by then-Maricopa County Sheriff Joseph Arpaio. The mainstream media has often followed suit, decrying the “birthers” and Trump as their “leader.”

P&E: “US Senate” Accesses “natural born Citizen” Article:
COMPARING CIRCUMSTANCES OF TWO U.S. SENATORS

Shortly before 6:00 p.m. EST on Monday, an individual using a “US Senate” ISP opened The Post & Email’s 2016 article on the topic of “natural born Citizen” with specific references to Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

* * *

Our article, published on March 24, 2016 and titled, “If Sen. Mazie Hirono is a Naturalized Citizen, How is Ted Cruz ‘natural born?’” was written during the height of the 2016 Republican presidential primaries wherein then-businessman Donald Trump and Cruz sparred bitterly for the nomination.

* * *

Just after the 2016 Republican primaries concluded with Trump the victor, The Post & Email was told by a reliable source that Eleanor Darragh Cruz also became a Canadian citizen while residing there, although the year of her alleged change in citizenship was not available.

[Usual birther :yankyank: snipped.]

Cruz’s presidential campaign declined to respond to The Post & Email’s request [regarding his natural-born citizenship], sent by certified mail just after Cruz declared himself a candidate in March 2015, that he release documentation proving he met the eligibility criteria for the presidency. . . .

Despite numerous open-records requests sent to the State of Texas, where Cruz was admitted to the State Bar and served as Solicitor General, The Post & Email was unable to acquire documentation containing any questions about citizenship to an applicant for the public-service positions Cruz held.
Rondeau's visitors log is newsworthy!

Bonus:
With a U.S.-citizen parent, a foreign-citizen parent and a birth on foreign soil, Hirono is reportedly a naturalized U.S. citizen, raising the question as to why and how Cruz could be considered a “natural born Citizen,” as he claimed during the presidential race.

Or a repeat Marxist?
Rondeau wrote:Since Harris’s office will not answer any questions about her citizenship or that of her parents, it is hard to know the truth, but her Wikipedia page states that each of her parents was a legal immigrant to the US, one year apart, and presumably holders of green cards at the time. Her father’s biography at Stanford University, where he taught for a number of years, states that he became a US citizen but not the year in which it reportedly occurred. Naturalization records are not releasable under US law for living persons.

https://web.stanford.edu/~dharris/profe ... career.htm

Harris’s Wikipedia entry also states that at age 7, when her parents divorced, she and her sister were placed in the full custody of her mother, who obtained a research position at McGill University in Montréal for approximately 11 years. If the information is correct, virtually all of Harris’s pre-college education took place in Canada. While that alone would not preclude her from being a “natural born Citizen,” per se, it raises questions over whether her mother took Canadian citizenship and whether or not she and her sister became dual citizens of the US and Canada so that they could attend school in that country. That is speculation and again, not verifiable with the US State Department, even for public figures.

Until Rondeau concedes that every judge who heard an eligibility case on the merits ruled that birth in the United States alone* is sufficient to confer natural-born citizenship, no.

I am sure she has never read the first few paragraphs of Wong Kim Ark, where the court states that the US follows the Common Law definition of Natural Born Citizen.

Hope Sharon Rondeau doesn't get bitter when she wakes up and realizes she wasted 10 years of her life on a total loser issue that always, invariably, failed. And the only people that believe her are rapidly moving to the #DeadBirthers topic. Is it possible the P&E simply won't have any more living readers one day soon? (Except us but we don't count, we've always just laughed at her.)

P&E: The Post & Email Asks Sen. Murphy’s Office about Federal Employees’ Alleged Claims of Financial Hardship:
DESPITE NO MISSED PAYCHECK

On Thursday evening, WTNH in New Haven, CT depicted during its 10:00 PM news hour Connecticut’s junior U.S. senator, Chris Murphy, reading portions of two letters he allegedly received from constituents who are federal employees affected by the partial government shutdown, then in its 18th day.

* * *

The letters Murphy said on Thursday he received from two constituents detailed severe financial hardship, with one writer stating she was unable to take her disabled child to doctors’ appointments and the other claiming she lacked money for gasoline to take her children to and from school.

Although the portion of the broadcast showing Murphy reading the letters appeared to have been prerecorded, neither of the news anchors questioned the timing of the letters given that furloughed federal employees had not yet been deprived of any pay or indicated they had reached out to Murphy’s office to ask the question.

On Friday morning, The Post & Email sent the following inquiry to Murphy’s media representative [ . . . ]:
Rondeau wrote:Good morning, I received your email address after calling Sen. Murphy’s Washington, DC office. I run an online newspaper and in full disclosure am also Sen. Murphy’s constituent.

Last night on WTNH-New Haven, Sen. Murphy was shown reading letters he reportedly received from constituents currently furloughed by the current partial government shutdown. The two letters I recall his reading dealt with federal employees stating that they could not afford such expenses as gasoline for taking their children to school and taking a special-needs child to his medical appointments.

My understanding, however, is that although into its third week, furloughed employees will miss their first paycheck today.

[ * * * ]

Are you able to clarify the statements made in the letters read by Sen. Murphy and public reporting regarding today’s first missed paycheck?
As of the close of business Friday, we had received no response.
Will Rondeau be so heartless when it is her SNAP check being imperiled?

Hey Sharon, they knew they weren't going to get paid. Why not do some journalism and look up how Walmart's sales spike on paydays. Maybe you can find a birther angle.
The Everyone Problem Defined

Workers do different things to solve their “make it work until payday” moments, depending on their need, level of access and income. Those on the lower end of the scale will often be drawn into the highest-cost version of a solution: overdraft fees or payday loans. But further up the income scale, he said, workers who still encounter cash flow shortfalls will be pulling out a credit card, potentially with a double-digit interest payment, to solve the problem. It’s less costly, but — ultimately and over time — expensive for workers, and stands as a barrier to long-term financial health.

“All of the things that you can do to solve the problem of making it to the next payday makes it worse, and customers go into these arrangements with open eyes knowing that, but having no choice but to make it work,” Schlossberg noted.

That is the problem Even hopes to solve. Schlossberg and his team believe most workers want to be financially stable and well-managed, but haven’t had adequate tools to get them there until now. Even’s goal, by “sitting at the intersection of a worker’s employer with their paycheck and the user bank’s account,” is to give them the right toolbox to, first, get control of their financial lives and, second, actually get on the road to financial health.

Now, fresh off a $40 billion Series B funding round led by Khosla Ventures, and six months into its Walmart partnership, Schlossberg said Even has a clearer-than-ever picture of how wide the needs are and where the big challenges lie going forward.

How Walmart’s Results Shocked, Without Surprising

In December of last year, Even went live and online for 1.4 million Walmart employees (15 percent of Walmart total workforce), more than 200,000 of whom have signed on with the program.

“That is actually incredible, particularly when you see it compared against other benefit participation for things like 401(k), which comes in at about 3 percent,” Schlossberg told Webster.

Of those users, 75 percent check in with the app weekly, 44 percent use it daily and, on average, employees are checking in with their “okay to spend” balance twice a week. And though hourly and salaried workers use the app almost equally, the salaried workers use the app 2 percent more.

It is "real news," in that the president did pushback his presser an hour.

That Rondeau felt the urge to write an article about an item that will be relevant for an hour speaks to her journalistic acumen.
