  • City Invests $18 Mil to Help Illegal Aliens Get Jobs (NY City)

    Judicial Watch ^ | July 25, 2013
    New York City is making headlines—and angering many—for becoming the nation’s first municipality to spend millions of taxpayer dollars to help illegal immigrants get jobs and learn English. How generous of the Big Apple! Under the plan the city will become the first in the U.S. to invest $18 million in a special program aimed at helping illegal aliens find work and get driver’s licenses. City officials have named it the immigration relief program and it will include adult education classes and legal services, among other benefits. It is expected to help tens of thousands of illegal immigrants living in...

    . . . you guessed it, “conservative, evangelical, Tea Party Republicans.” Speaking to an Emily’s List fundraiser, Fluke said that “GOP efforts to limit the availability of birth control” were “directly responsible for Weiner’s behavior.”“What men, and women want, above all is SAFE sex. It’s our constitutional right. So now the GOP is limiting our access to both birth control AND abortion on demand. So a poor person like me, I can’t afford to have sex, unless it’s unprotected, and if a poor person accidentally gets pregnant, it’s now almost impossible to get an abortion.”“That’s why so many men and...

    The lewd behavior that New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner engaged in suggests he is struggling with more than bad behavior and could be dealing with a variety of issues driving his problematic sexual behavior, experts said. But doctors, clinical psychologists and sex therapists differ on the role of biology, as well as issues such as anxiety, depression and insecurity. Fred Berlin, director of the Sexual Behaviors Consultation Unit at Johns Hopkins Hospital, said many of his patients exhibit behavior similar to Weiner’s, although he and other experts cautioned that they could not speak to the former congressman’s specific situation....

    I asked my Facebook and Twitter followers Tuesday how liberal media members would save disgraced New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner so he wouldn't have to drop out of the race. Andrew Sullivan certainly did his part in a Wednesday piece titled "Breaking: Man Gets Off Online" wherein he actually wrote, "In this new Internet Age someone has to be the person who makes sexting not an excludable characteristic for public office." First, Sullivan set out to explain why sending pictures of your private parts really isn't something to be frowned upon: With countless interactive hook-up sites, and ever...

The 23-year old woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, spoke exclusively with RadarOnline.com via Nik Richie who broke the story by publishing the pictures and racy messages. “We were in love,” she said about the relationship that started in 2012, a year after Weiner resigned from his congressional office, sought treatment, and repaired his marriage...

    Amid new sexting revelations involving New York mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison offered a measured assessment Wednesday of the former congressional colleague he had previously endorsed. Ellison said New Yorkers must decide Weiner’s political fate. That’s less of a ringing endorsement than in April when Ellison told a television interviewer that he would love to see Weiner as mayor of the nation’s largest city. Ellison said at the time he believed Weiner had dealt with sordid personal issues.

    It takes a fair bit of gall to accuse the media of lying about a sex scandal. It takes even more gall to then admit to the sex scandal, resign, claim you've redeemed yourself and decide to run again. And it takes the most gall to do all of those things, even as you're engaged in a continuation of that sex scandal. But when your name is Anthony Weiner, gall is your middle name. Or perhaps Danger is. Weiner resigned from Congress in June 2011, but only after claiming that Andrew Breitbart had fabricated photos of his scantily clad body....

    Former New York Rep. Anthony Weiner's sexually explicit Internet exchanges with a woman after his resignation from Congress fit the same pattern as his earlier indiscretions. The details of the encounters with a 22-year old Indiana woman suggest Weiner continued his longstanding pattern of conduct as late as the summer of 2012, or longer. According to The New York Times, the Democratic candidate for mayor of New York began an online sexual relationship with a woman who initially contacted him after his resignation to express her disappointment. *snip* Richie said the woman kept screenshots of their conversations and told the...

His reputation for being “cerebral” may be overstated but there ain’t no way no how no chance this guy’s sincerely convinced by the “logic” that because a candidate has been forgiven by his spouse for wrongdoing, the electorate should forgive too. If Huma can tolerate Weiner’s seemingly pathological need for affirmation by sexting with random women, that’s great; why a voter would tolerate it, I have no idea. At a...

In the meantime, the serially evasive Mr. Weiner should take his marital troubles and personal compulsions out of the public eye, away from cameras, off the Web and out of the race for mayor of New York City. Mr. Weiner, who resigned from Congress two years ago after sending lewd messages and photos of his crotch to women he had not met, was forced to revisit the issue on Tuesday, and so were we all.

An explosive Anthony Weiner received his first serious criticism from voters over the sexting scandal that forced him to resign from Congress Wednesday night–sparking a shouting match that marked the most heated moment of his campaign to date. Mr. Weiner had given his usual stump speech touting middle class jobs and his book of policy proposals at a New Kings Democrats candidates forum in Williamsburg when the floor was opened to questions. The second came from Chris Owens, a Brownstone Brooklyn district leader and a supporter of one of Mr. Weiner’s electoral rivals, who berated Mr. Weiner for...

    New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner admitted on Tuesday to sending additional explicit photos and texts to a woman he met online — correspondence she says began months after he resigned from Congress for similar behavior. The allegation could severely test voters’ willingness to forgive Weiner, who has said he spent the two years since the scandal trying to make things right with his wife and earn redemption.

The woman told the Web site she was 22 when Weiner began the online relationship. Site editor Nik Ritchie wrote that the woman claimed Weiner and the woman “had a relationship for six months, and she believed they were in love.” Weiner allegedly used the pseudonym...

      Those puzzled by the notion of New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner accepting money accepting money from Al-Jazeera may want to consider a better question: Why is Al-Jazeera giving him money in the first place? We can’t figure it out except for one reason – his wife is a devout Muslim with extensive, irrefutable familial connections to the Muslim Brotherhood, whose propaganda is piped all over the Middle East by… Al-Jazeera. Via the New York Post: Oy! Jewish leaders are kvetching over Anthony Weiner’s accepting campaign cash from a lobbyist for Al Jazeera — Osama bin Laden’s favorite...
