  • The (too many) hats of Huma Abedin: A tale of Clintonworld

    The New York Post ^ | 10-3-15 | Post Editorial Board
    That Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin had her fingers in multiple financial pots — even while still high up in the State Department — is no secret. But the full extent of Abedin’s blurring of roles is coming to light. This summer, The Washington Post revealed that, at one point, Abedin — unusually granted “special government employee” status — was getting paid four different ways: from the taxpayers for her State work, from the Clinton Foundation, as political adviser to Hillary and by the Clinton-allied firm Teneo Holdings. The Washington Times reported last week how Huma’s hats came together in...

    Long-time Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin offered her first-ever tweet on Monday -- and it's a shot at Republican presidential contender Ben Carson. Carson is under fire for his Sunday comment on NBC's "Meet the Press" that he "would not advocate that we put a Muslim in charge of this nation." Abedin, who is Muslim, tweeted: "You can be a proud American, a proud Muslim, and proudly serve this great country. Pride versus prejudice."(continued)

    US lawmakers slam Saudi for teaching 'hatred'Democratic legislators urge Saudi government to eliminate hateful teaching from classrooms. First Published 2009-06-04 WASHINGTON - US lawmakers on Wednesday called on the Saudi government to stop distributing children's religious textbooks they claimed incited hatred and intolerance toward Jews, women and homosexuals, although such alleged incitements are present in interpretations of Christianity and Judaism. The request by three Democratic legislators coincided with President Barack Obama's visit to Saudi Arabia and Egypt this week to shore up beleaguered US relations with Muslims worldwide. "This is not some rogue document," Congressman Anthony Weiner told reporters. "This...

    GQ has the depressing campaign post-mortem/autopsy with fallen angel Anthony Weiner ("The Year of Living Carlos Dangerously," heh), and it's what we've come to expect from a man who can talk forever and say almost nothing. Weiner, though — his candidacy and likely his political career dead and buried — did seem to let his guard down a bit when discussing his relationship. It gets dark. Asked if he and Huma will stay together, Weiner responded: “One thing I’m grateful for is that now I’m under no obligation to answer anything like this,” he said. “But we’ve had a very...

    Really, liberals, to think you supported this fine gent in Congress all those years with minions in the media propping him up? Hmmmmmm. I hope Weiner continues to be a spokesman for the liberal cause because his position pretty much says it all. Just as interesting juxtaposition to show what average Americans think of members of Congress like Anthony Weiner and the permanent political class in D.C., I’m pasting below a letter that was posted online in various forums. It was apparently sent by a gentlemen in Washington state to his senators. I don’t know this gentleman and can’t...

    Anthony Weiner can’t even manage to play nice on the playground.The scandal-ridden mayoral primary loser — who reportedly flipped the finger after delivering his concession speech — was spotted at Union Square Park playground with his and Huma Abedin’s son, Jordan Zain, on Thursday when another child had an accident and peed on a swing. We’re told the father grabbed his kid and went to find a napkin to clean up, as Weiner made his way over to the exact swing.A spy tells us Weiner was heard screaming, “Thanks for leaving this thing soaking wet.”

    Somewhere, up there, Andrew Breitbart is celebrating. On September 10, 2013, the legendary gadfly whose huge heart gave out far too soon chalked up a three more big wins in his campaign to take America back from the hypocritical liberal snobs he despised. In New York, a Democrat electorate soundly rejected Anthony Wiener’s creepy comeback bid. And in Colorado, an enraged citizenry defied everything the liberal establishment could throw at them and tossed out a pair of Democrat state senators who thought they could trample on the basic civil right to keep and bear arms. Neither victory would have been...

  • Bloomberg Rips Mayoral Frontrunner De Blasio's Campaign as 'Racist'

    As of right now, Bill de Blasio is the man to beat in the race to be the next mayor of New York City. The latest polls put him at 43%, which is enough to avoid a run-off in the Democratic primary, and it is widely believed that whoever wins the Democratic primary will sail into office. For the most part, sitting mayor, Michael Bloomberg, has stayed out of the race, but in an extensive interview with New York Magazine the term-limited Independent ripped de Blasio's campaign as "class-warfare and racist":

    “Class-warfare and racist,” Bloomberg said. “I mean he’s making an appeal using his family to gain support. I think it’s pretty obvious to anyone watching what he’s been doing.” “I do not think he himself is racist,” Bloomberg said of de Blasio. “It’s comparable to me pointing out I’m Jewish in attracting the Jewish vote. You tailor messages to your audiences and address issues you think your audience cares about….Tearing people apart with this ‘two cities’ thing doesn’t make any sense to me.”
