Why is everyone turning
on Huma Abedin?

The Week, by Emily Shire

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/28/2013 5:17:50 AM

W hen Anthony Weiner derailed his political career the first time, back in 2011, his wife Huma Abedin was greeted with an outpouring of sympathy. The longtime aide to Hillary Clinton, who pointedly declined to stand by her husband´s side as he admitted to tweeting photos of his crotch to random women on the internet, was universally seen as a victim of her husband´s sexual shenanigans. The only question surrounding the glamorous and whip-smart Abedin was: What on earth is she doing with him? The second time around has been quite different. This week, Abedin swooped down

"whip-smart Abedin"?? If she´s so whip smart, why is she so enamored with all things Mussie. It is a stone age system of beliefs, ya know. The mussies who are smart want to distance themselves. Move into the 21st Century. I have known some, Java developers, H1B visas.

And her flasher husband is a low life. He´s probably a pedophile as well.

Because she must be filled with self-hate.
Otherwise, she would have figured out that she and her son deserve better treatment from Weiner. Evidently, she must think that she has to be a laughingstock and a doormat. If she is staying with him for the sake of the child, she is making a great mistake..the child will not do well in a dysfunctional family.

Maybe because she s as lowlife as her husband? Trying to pass the guy she married as something he s not. He is a pervert and not capable of making adult decisions, you live with him but don´t expect the city to.

The real Huma has emerged. She loves the power and the money it will bring. Didn´t they just move into a million dollar apartment. She has been around Hillary long enough for Hillary´s values or lack thereof to rub off on her. Her parents are members of the Muslim Brotherhood and would love to have a daughter in the seat of power and influence in NYC. She can blackmail Weiner on a moments notice. Those are the reasons she is a dangerous woman

I question the depth of her attachment to Islam. Recall that they were married in a ceremony led by Bill Clinton.

I assume she is a typical, non-religious "progressive" who only pay lip service to religion when it furthers their pursuit of political office (& campaign cash!)

Taqiyya is a Shiite concept and supposedly not applicable to Sunnis, which as a Saudi-American Huma would presumably be (whether an outwardly practicing Muslim or not). But that may be an irrelevant technicality in this case.

Sometimes the least complicated answer is the one most nearly correct.

Her family are leftwingers ~ so is she.

Her mother is a bit brassy to be a serious part of the Moslem Brotherhood, still, she and the other ladies in the family had plenty of time to influence Huma when she was growing up to be a DUTIFUL and OBEDIENT wife.

Having lived in America many years she finds any American man better than one of the mustache pete´s from the old country.

Millions of American men can set the curious straight on that issue.

Jeb Bush and the 2016 GOP Field

George Will wrote a column in which he said of Jeb Bush, “A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable” and “[he] does … deserve a respectful hearing from the Republican nominating electorate.” I agree, partly because I admire Bush, who was a highly successful, reform-minded conservative governor. His record as governor of Florida was, in fact, more conservative in key respects than Ronald Reagan’s record when he was governor of California. (Mr. Reagan signed into law what at the time was the largest tax hike ever proposed by any governor, whereas Bush cut taxes every year he was governor,

In his plurality opinion in yesterday´s free-speech case, McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, Chief Justice John Roberts notes an anomaly in contemporary "liberal" First Amendment jurisprudence: "If the First Amendment protects flag burning, funeral protests, and Nazi parades--despite the profound offense such spectacles cause--it surely protects political campaign speech despite popular opposition." We´d take the point a step further. The examples Roberts cites all involve fringe political expression.(Snip)So why have the court´s "liberals" adopted a hostile attitude toward political speech, which has long been understood

Democratic Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia wants you to know that, at $174,000 a year, members of Congress are underpaid. Because Jim Moran, like others, doesn´t understand actual economic hardship and, frankly, isn´t that great at politics either. Moran is not the only public official to make a dubious claim about salary hardship in the past 24 hours. Larry Schwartz is secretary to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a position that´s a sort of like chief of staff in the state. Schwartz was discussing a proposal backed by Cuomo that would freeze property taxes on people at certain income levels.

Google is trying to register the word “Glass” as a trademark for its computer-powered glasses. But so far, the company and the U.S. trademark office aren’t seeing eye to eye. Google, which has successfully trademarked the term “Google Glass,” submitted an application last year for a trademark on just the single word “Glass,” displayed with the same futuristic font used in its marketing campaign. But the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office is holding up the company’s bid. In a letter to the company last fall, a trademark examiner raised two main objections. One concern was that the trademark was too similar to

Kimberly Munley was shot three times taking down Nidal Hasan in 2009. Then she got laid off. Yet she’s never stopped fighting for the victims the military ‘betrayed’ in that shooting. Just as in the last mass shooting at Fort Hood, the massacre on Wednesday ended when the gunman was confronted by a very brave policewoman. “It was clearly heroic what she did at that moment in time,” Lt. Gen. Mark Milley said of the officer in the more recent horror. Hopefully, the still-unidentified hero in this week’s attack will be treated better than Fort Hood Police Sgt.

Fort Hood Shooting Shows
Shortfalls in Base Security

Wednesday´s rampage at Fort Hood—the second in five years at the Killeen, Texas, Army post—revealed shortfalls in Defense Department efforts to tighten security at military installations world-wide. A 2009 shooting at Fort Hood brought recommendations for security improvements, such as better detecting threats from inside the military, but the Pentagon has yet to enact several important changes, and an independent review of Pentagon practices concluded last month that current procedures are "insufficient to ensure on-base security." Wednesday´s shooting by an active-duty soldier also cast new light on enforcing a policy that prohibits enlisted personnel from carrying concealed weapons on base. The attack

The Leland Yee story is one of the most remarkable in years. A California State Senator, Yee has long been a leading spokesman for gun control–it’s all for the children, you know. A popular politician who represents around one-half of San Francisco, Yee was about to run for Secretary of State when he was arrested for gun running. Specifically, he acted as an intermediary to buy shoulder-fired missiles and automatic weapons from a Muslim terrorist group in the Philippines and import them into the U.S. There were other charges, too; the usual bribery, money laundering, and so on.

God saves the queen. He saves this honorable court. But who will save the United States Senate? The venerable institution that Democrats control and Republicans covet has lately been something of a circus. The Senate majority leader, Harry Reid (D-Nev.), prevents amendments and pursues an unhinged vendetta against the Koch brothers, private citizens engaged in lawful political activity. The Senate minority leader, Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), is under political siege from right and left in his own state. Conservative populists gain presidential buzz by blowing up or shutting down Senate processes. Since the Senate is America’s pinnacle of institutional self-regard — “the

Voter fraud is so rare “you’re more likely to get hit by lightning than find a case of prosecutorial voter fraud,” asserts Judith Browne-Dianis, co-director of the liberal Advancement Project.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

"I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks.

Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated.

Big changes could be just down the road for North Carolina drivers. A proposal is in the works that would change the state tax system to charge drivers by the mile, instead of at the gas pump.The proposal would be to charge a half cent per mile for cars, which would generate almost $500 million in annual state revenue. A driver who travelled 15,000 miles in a year would pay about $75. "Basically you pay per the mile.

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the
