Anthony Weiner announces NYC mayor run
Politico, by Kevin Robillard

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 5/22/2013 6:06:40 AM

Former Rep. Anthony Weiner, whose career in public life came to an abrupt end when he sent lewd pictures to a college student on Twitter, jumped back into politics on Wednesday by announcing a bid for mayor of New York City. “Look, I’ve made some big mistakes and I know I’ve let a lot of people down,” the Democrat said in a 2-minute video announcing his bid. “But I’ve also learned some tough lessons. I’m running for mayor because I’ve been fighting for the middle class and those struggling to make it for my entire life.

And he´ll probably win because the Dem candidates resemble the Seven Dwarves --clueless, on the take, or corrupt (John Liu). Unfortunately Gristedes´ owner John Catsimitides is sucking all the air out of the Republican race (he´s the one who looks like Jabba the Hutt) and is nothing but another Dem in Disguise. Unfortunately an excellent potential mayor, Joe Lhota, is getting lost in this because he doesn´t have Bloomie´s money nor particularly smart advisers (I think they are waiting for Cat to spend all his money).

NYC´s lefties and socialists will get what they deserve--more crime, failing schools, dirty streets and another broke city (because a lot of bills that Tiny Bloomie pushed off or created are going to come due in this term). I look at this as the crest of a beautiful, safe city that its own residents will destroy. (Watch the curve of residential construction and crime rates in the next mayor´s term)

So this slimy little weasel thinks he can run the (arguably) dirtiest, rudest, 2nd most corrupt city in the country?
Why doesnt he get a real job for a few decades. Professional politician is not a real job. Its a negative job.

There have always been men of low character in high places, but fear of public exposure used to keep them in check. I realized something fundamental had been ruined when Bill Clinton wasn´t forced to resign within days of his misconduct becoming public. At the time, I knew it was the end of any standards within the Democratic party. What I didn´t expect was that it would signal the beginning of the end for moral judgement in American politics. Now there is virtually nothing a politician can do to render themselves unfit for public office. With the nomination and election of Mark Sanford, the Republicans are on the same descent path; they are just a little behind the curve. We are governed by those who are demonstrably incapable of governing themselves.

Anthony Weiner is a symptom. I fear there is no cure.

He´s a perv, wife is Muslim Brotherhood or a sympathizer, and helped to destroy this country while at State working for that other traitor, Hildebeest. (And where was Huma when Benghazi went down?)

When are the supposedly powerful Orthodox spokesmen going to go after this horrible combination and expose it (sic) for what it is? Or are they paid off?

This has national implications because Weiner will not stop at being mayor--try governor and president. (And I´d bet if you look closely, there´s Soros money there.) And BTW, for all you NYC-haters, Lucianne and more than a few other posters live here. Don´t damn us, please. It´s going to be worse than the 1970s-1980s, and will affect all of you.

When you have Bloomberg elected as Mayor, the bar is set pretty low. Weiner is an obnoxious little fool who is without a drop of honor or integrity. He is a small man with no shame. A man who would send naked photos of himself is totally without judgment, and that is a serious personality flaw. He is personally corrupt. If you wanted to run for office, being a person of good moral character and integrity used to mean something in this country. Now being a sexual exhibitionist is resume enhancer which is a pathetic indictment of our society.

Well -- what do you expect from uma´s own weiner?

She worked for hillary -- eh?

These kinda women offend every woman -- by standing with their perverts....at the expense of all WOMEN....

Now how can the demorats be said to have protected WOMEN? They support them when they murder babies, they support them when they "demand" birth control paid by joe/six/pack....but never when a woman is sexually attacked.

Something´s very wrong here. You go NYC -- and elect your pervert and watch America laugh at you. With good reason...

#12, agree with your thoughts, except that something was ruined when Ted (the swimmer) Kennedy lived on as the "Lion of the Senate" for 40-odd years beyond Chappaquiddick.

It´s been said that Hillary/Bill aren´t happy with Weiner running, because it reminds people of Bill´s pecadillos, and might be awkward for Hillary´s future run.

Weiner boy is an obnoxious, rude slimeball. His mentor is Upchuck Schumer. Need I say anything else. Weiner was my Councilman when UpChuck was our Congressman. It is absolutely astounding the number of corrupt elected officials running for office in NYC. Not a resident any longer, I agree, New Yorkers get what they deserve if they elect this pervert. I agree with an earlier poster, Joe Lhota is the only hope to save New York City. If he doesn´t make it, NY will revert to the wild west that it was before Rudy.

Weiner is the Wurst Brat ever to aim for publick orifice... he will never ketchup.

He already missed his intended opening thrust scheduled for Sinko de Mayo...
which is what he frequently does along with Billyboobboob Klintoon...
Sometimes spelled "Spanko de Mayo into de Sinko" (longform version)...

His run is not kosher and hardly belongs in the core of the Big Apple...

Any one-eyed glans at this candidacy would suckgest we nip this in the bud...

So even though Tony Tony has adopted the personal mantra of Monica Lewinsky as his
official slogan...
"If at first you don´t suck seed... try, try again... "

There will be no Second Coming of the Repulsive Weiner if we just Say NO!!

Huma works for Hillary, the Muslim Brotherhood, Islam, and Allah. She is lesbian Hillary´s love interest. That is why Hillary doesn´t/hasn´t cared about Bill Clinton´s pervert ways, except when it embarrasses her and their team efforts to be the TOP operatives of the global elite.
Rumor has Huma also as a Saudi agent,, supplying information to and from the Obama government. She is attractive in some ways, and it has hooked the old Hillary´s lustful heart.
In her special role helping Islam conquor the West, she takes cover under Anthony´s Weiner, and subverts the United States. The power structure will meet her, and weaken, and fail as she succeeds in roping the dopes.

Frankly, Mr Weiner is not the problem, as that is up to the voters, but his wife and her associations pose many questions. Just my opinion.

Kim Jong-un gets mobbed
by ladies. Cracks a smile
News Limited [Australia], by Jenni Ryall    Original Article

Kim Jong-un has taken on his role as North Korea’s Supreme Leader with gusto — even, if reports are to be believed, culling some members of his own family. He expects his people to follow his lead — from haircuts through to behaviour and rarely shows his relaxed side. That is until he gets mobbed. By females. Specifically, hot Korean ladies. Just moments earlier he showed his formal, restrained side by posing alongside members of the Korean People’s Army. Then the admirers came running. We’ve never seen Kimmy’s smile so wide. He bathed in the female attention.

The gap between Gakirah Barnes’s front teeth when she smiled, whether she was celebrating on the basketball court or messing around with friends, made her look even younger than the 17 years she spent in south Chicago before being shot to death last weekend.(snip)The bitter feud, in a city derided as “Chiraq”, has been linked to the deadly shootings of 18-year-old rapper Joseph "Lil JoJo" Coleman, a Lil Jay ally, in 2012; Mario “Blood Money” Hess, Keef’s 30-year-old cousin, who was murdered two days before Gakirah, after securing a record deal; and Odee Perry, 20, who was slain in 2011

Fuels made from corn actually
worse than gasoline, study says

WASHINGTON — According to a new study, commissioned by the federal government, says that biofuels made from the leftovers of harvested corn plants are actually worse than gasoline -- when it comes to global warming in the short term. The research published in the journal Nature Climate Change challenges the Obama administration´s conclusions that biofuels are a much cleaner oil alternative and will help fight climate change. The study is being criticized by the biofuels industry and Obama administration as flawed. Corn residue is one of the most promising ways to make cellulosic biofuels. Biofuels have struggled to reach the volumes

When Brooklyn resident Isaiah Martinez tried to cut the line it ignited outrage among other patrons who demanded he go to

Hip hop hustlers who sell their music in Times Square say cops are giving them a bad rap. Eight rappers who claim the NYPD has violated their rights with a campaign of bogus arrests have filed joint lawsuits in Manhattan Federal Court against the city and 17 cops.(snip)Disorderly conduct and aggressive begging are the most common charges, with cops saying the rappers aggressively shove CDs at pedestrians, block the sidewalk and follow potential customers down the street. But the rappers claim the allegations are phony and say their cases ultimately get dismissed. They argue their music sales are protected by the

CARSON CITY, Nev.-- Secretary of State Ross Miller says a woman has been arrested on two felony charges for allegedly using a false identity to register to vote and casting ballots in Nevada elections. Miller late Friday announced the arrest of Ortencia Segura in California. A complaint filed by the attorney general´s office says Segura registered to vote in Washoe County in August 2008 and provided identification with the name of Marisela Reyna. Authorities confirmed she voted in the 2008 and 2010 elections. Authorities say information from the Justice Department show Segura was arrested in 2012 and deported for filing

WASHINGTON — The United States is said to have disclosed that Saudi King Abdullah was dying. (Snip) The sources said the photograph was taken by White House personnel during Obama’s meeting with the Saudi king outside Riyad on March 28.“The Saudis specifically did not want any photograph that showed Abdullah with the tube,” a source said. “But there was a White House photographer that took the picture for what he said was history.” The photograph was said to have been relayed to members of the White House press corps. Within a day, an image of the Saudi king with the breathing tube was

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
