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.
If the people of NYC elect that sex pervert to the highest office in the city, they deserve what they get. His wife is related to the Muslim Brotherhood and her family works for them. Don´t they remember 9/11? When will this nightmare couple just fade away?
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.
...just the fact that he probably can get demsheep to vote for him - despite being a lowlife, lying pervert - shows what utter idiots they all are...it makes me sick that the demsheep are allowed to vote.
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.
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...
Do you think any intrepis reported wil;l ask Weiner about his wife´s relationship to the MB? her working as a consultnat while working at State as Hillary´s confidante and NOT reporting this on her financila disclosure forms? it;s becoming more and more apparent that ther are Two Americas: the Clinton, Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Weiner America and the rest of us.
Come on New York...I would hope for better than this...but then again you elected PIAPS and Schumer to the Senate a bevvy or corrupt Democrats to the House and Nanny Bloomberg Mayor...so my hopes are not too high...
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!!
The morning after this erection the voters will wake up to the hair of the dog... Arf!!
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.
President Barack Obama and his family will spend Christmas in Hawaii again this year, and are expected to stay in the same beachfront Kailua neighborhood where they´ve spent the past five year-end holidays. Hawaii News Now reports the Obamas are expected to arrive around Dec. 20 and stay until Jan. 5. While Obama typically spends a lot of time at the nearby Marine Corps Base Hawaii at Kaneohe Bay, working out in the gym and playing golf, he does tend to venture out to the same local businesses each trip. Among his favorites are Island Snow and Buzz´s Original Steakhouse in Kailua,
On a break from pretending to believe they live in a country bristling with violent white racists, the Non-Fox Media have been trying to debunk stories about the "Knockout Game," in which young black males approach random strangers and try to knock them out with one punch. The left´s leading line of defense against the Knockout Game is to argue that young black males have always been violent, so, hey, this is nothing new. You´re welcome, black America! In Slate, Emma Roller wearily recounted other episodes of black-on-white violence in order to announce: "The ´Knockout Game´ is a myth." Reminiscing about the flash mobs
CASPER, Wyo. — The Power Company of Wyoming plans to apply next month for a federal permit that will allow the firm to kill a limited number of eagles every year at its planned Chokecherry-Sierra Madre wind farm in Carbon County. The decision of the Denver-based developer to seek what is known as an “eagle-take permit” from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reflects what may be the beginning of a trend, industry observers said. Fish and Wildlife has never granted a take permit to a wind developer, but is currently considering several applications, said Dave Carlson, National Environmental Protection
President Obama has declared his renewed commitment to fighting income inequality. But we now have five years of evidence to draw upon, and it’s clear that Obama’s methods in this regard have failed miserably. In fact, they’ve worked about as well as Obamacare. Obama’s approach to addressing income inequality, of course, is to funnel ever more money and power to Washington, while promoting a culture of cozy cronyism between Big Government and Big Business (especially Big “Green” Business). When having a well-positioned team of Washington lawyers and lobbyists becomes a necessary prerequisite to getting ahead, that’s hardly conducive to Main St.
CHAMBLEE, Ga. -- One Saturday in November, Kaveh Kamooneh drove his Nissan Leaf to Chamblee Middle School, where his 11-year-old son was playing tennis. Kamooneh had taken the liberty of charging the electric car with an exterior outlet at the school. Within minutes of plugging in the car, he says a Chamblee police officer appeared. "He said that he was going to charge me with theft by taking because I was taking power, electricity from the school," Kamooneh said. Kamooneh says he had charged his car for 20 minutes, drawing about a nickel´s worth of juice. Don Francis of Clean Cities Atlanta, an
Recently, a prominent Massachusetts Democrat spotted Senator Elizabeth Warren at an airport and saw an opportunity. Have you read The New Republic, Philip W. Johnston asked Warren playfully, showing her the cover of the magazine he had just purchased. It was devoted to whether Warren would run for president. Warren wasn’t having any of it. She answered with an exaggerated eye roll that cut short any further talk of the 2016 presidential race. “She doesn’t want to talk about it in any serious way,” said Johnston, a supporter. On Wednesday, Warren became so sick of media speculation that she might run as a populist
COLLEGE PARK, Md.-- D-Day arrived for Obamacare Saturday and it began with an 11-hour shutdown of the website. The system is functioning a bit better than before but is still terribly inadequate. Applications are in limbo -- many already initiated are stalled, lost or otherwise can´t be completed. Applicants eligible for subsidies must use the website, or HealthCare.org paper alternatives that can´t handle the volume and the system often can´t verify applicants´ eligibility for aid. Overall, the website still fails to complete the enrollment process for many who try. Website software to get insurance companies paid subsidies isn´t functioning and
President Obama is trying to work off some of the calories from the nine Thanksgiving Day pies on the White House menu with a game of basketball.The commander-in-chief is stepping out of the White House to play hoops at the FBI headquarters, according to a White House pool report. It´s unclear who the president is playing with. Obama, a big basketball fan, picked up a game last Sunday at the FBI headquarters after announcing the interim agreement with Iran over its nuclear program.
Conservative writer and filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza isn´t sending any Thanksgiving good wishes to President Obama this year. The author of The Roots of Obama´s Rage started a Twitter firestorm Tuesday with this missive: "I am thankful this week when I remember that America is big enough and great enough to survive Grown-Up Trayvon in the White House!" Trayvon Martin is the Florida teenager killed by George Zimmerman in 2012; Zimmerman, pleading self-defense, was acquitted by a jury earlier this year. Tweeted reactions to D´Souza´s included the terms "disgusting" and "vile."
Is the Obama White House airbrushing history? It was a hallmark of the Stalin era: Fallen Soviet leaders vanished from official photographs. Nobody accuses President Obama of such subterfuge (well, nobody except for those who believe he forged his birth certificate), but a change in longtime practice in the White House has raised questions about the integrity of images Americans see of their president. The White House has increasingly excluded news photographers from Obama’s official events and is instead releasing images taken by in-house photographers, who are government employees. These photos often appear online and in newspapers, even though they lack
A new study of methane emissions finds that the U.S. is spewing 50 percent more methane, a greenhouse gas 21 times better at trapping heat than carbon dioxide, into the atmosphere than the Environmental Protection Agency previously assumed. Several factors contribute to the accumulation of methane gas in Earth’s atmosphere, such as the burning of fossil fuels and leaks from oil and gas refining and drilling, but one contender stands out above the rest as particularly repugnant: cow farts.(snip)According to the new research, livestock’s noxious flatulence accounts for a large portion of the methane gas being released into the atmosphere.
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford wonders if Barack Obama is "crazy" for the leftist policies the U.S. President is pushing. The crack-smoking Canadian has been battling a drug scandal, claims of sexual harassment and a string of embarrassing freak-outs before the press, but the Toronto politician laughed out loud about the mess Obama finds himself in. Come on, some of the stuff you guys are doing down there, to me, are you crazy?" Ford told FOX News reporter Jesse Watters for his segment on "The O´Reilly Factor" when asked about the Obama administration´s policy platform. "No, no, no, no, no," he
I have never been much of a conspiracy theorist. For me it was always Oswald by himself from the Texas School Book Depository and nothing in the intervening fifty years has disabused me of this notion. For the most part, I’m an Occam’s Razor kind of guy — the most obvious explanation is likely to be true. (Snip) To put it bluntly, Occam’s Razor has moved. Things that were once possibilities now seem almost certainties to me. Principal among those is that Obama’s academic records are perpetually unavailable for a reason — and that reason is most likely that they reveal
One of President Obama´s chief political assets has been his ability to excite young people like almost no politician in history. But the days of America´s youth fawning over the president are over. A new Harvard University Institute of Politics poll released Wednesday confirms what other surveys have shown in recent months: Millennials have soured on Obama so much this year that their opinion of him largely mirrors the American public´s. Even though Obama does not ever have to face another election, he should be worried about the findings for a couple of reasons, which we will dive into momentarily.
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
A stunning new study unveiled on Fox News´ Hannity finds that President Barack Obama’s White House calendar records just one face-to-face meeting between Obama and his Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in the more than three-and-a-half years leading up to the disastrous Obamacare launch. The startling statistic comes from a new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) analysis of Obama’s own official White House calendar, as well as the Politico presidential calendar, and raises new questions about Obama’s executive leadership and management throughout the implementation of his singular legislative achievement. More alarming still, the president’s schedule lists 277 private
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Amid an array of “knock-out” attacks against a number of Jews in Brooklyn’s Crown Heights neighborhood, a city councilwoman pointed to the success of the Jewish community as triggering the aggression. Councilwoman-elect Laurie Cumbo emphasized that while she “admire[s] the Jewish community immensely” for its work ethic, black teens may see it differently. “While I personally regard this level of tenacity, I also recognize that for others, the accomplishments of the Jewish community triggers feelings of resentment, and a sense that Jewish success is not also their success,” Cumbo, who was recently elected, wrote in a letter. Chief among the issues
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
America is facing a wave of strikes by its fast-food workers on Thursday a day after Barack Obama warned that inequality in the USA had soared to the point that it now posed "a fundamental threat to the American dream". Low-paid workers in McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken and other fast-food outlets in 100 cities across America were due to start rolling strikes to protest at the low level of America´s $7.25 (£4.45) federal minimum wage. The strikes are the latest part of a mushrooming publicity campaign for higher wages among those working so-called "McJobs", with fast-food restaurants seen as a
The world premiere of the “Ballad for Trayvon Martin for Orchestra and Jazz Quartet” is set for tonight. Princeton University’s director of its jazz-studies program composed the work in honor of the Florida teen. Anthony D. J. Branker told the Star-Ledger that the piece is intended to “be a form of healing” after Martin’s death and the controversial court case that followed it. The ballad, which will be performed by the university’s official orchestra and jazz ensemble, is intended to be a tribute to victims of racial violence, Branker explained. He hopes that the performance will be “one that speaks to
WASHINGTON – A fourth straight month of solid hiring cut the U.S. unemployment rate to a five-year low of 7 percent in November, an encouraging sign for the economy. The Labor Department says employers added 203,000 jobs, nearly matching October´s revised gain of 200,000. The job gains helped lower the unemployment rate from 7.3 percent in October. The strengthening job market is likely to fuel speculation that the Federal Reserve may start to scale back its bond purchases when it meets later this month. The economy has now generated an average of 204,000 jobs from August through November. That´s up
