Weiner didn’t declare costs
for lavish 2010 wedding

Daily Caller, by Charles C. Johnson

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 7/29/2013 3:33:15 PM

Anthony Weiner may have violated federal law when he failed to disclose his lavish six-figure wedding in his financial disclosure forms, says a government accountability group. Ethics watchdog group National Legal and Policy Center examined the federal Financial Disclosure Reports for both Weiner and long-suffering wife Huma Abedin for 2010, the year of their wedding. The cost for the ceremony was at least $100,000 but probably ran closer to $250,000 including all

I would suspect neither Anthony nor Huma paid for it, wouldn´t you? That would explain the lack of disclosure.

Dittos #1. A Clintonite dressmaker, a Clintonite wedding planner, and this gem: "The event was officiated by Bill Clinton, even though according to state law Clinton could not legally perform the marriage."

So does this mean they are not really married?

So they´re not legally married? Wow, that really IS a marriage of convenience then, isn´t it? The MB agent marries a Zionist infidel... but not really, so she´s still in good graces with MB (such as that is).

That´s a lot of loot for a ´sham´ wedding and reception. Hummmmm. So they´re not even legally wed. And Hillary´s fingerprints are all over the phony wedding arrangements. Anybody´s guess who paid for the not-so-legal nuptials?

Before the wedding Clintoon said in a speech, "I only have one daughter." (I know - stick with me here.) "But if I had a second daughter, it would [be] Huma."

In hindsight Huma seems to have a lot of the Hildebeast qualities. Next thing Weiner´s underpants will be itemized on their tax return.

They have moved into a million dollar apartment in Manhattan which they are not paying rent on. Who is giving them an apartment rent free and why? These people (Democrats) who claim to want to help the poor and middle class make me sick. They are the ones with the biggest houses, cars, fanciest dresses, most expensive jewelry. They laugh at us all the way to the bank. Wonder if Hillary and Barry discussed how to get rid of the Weiner´s over lunch today. LOL!

Maybe Mother Abedin paid for it. She lives in Saudi Arabia, is a leader in the Muslim Brotherhood, so sufficient funds would probably be available, especially for such a politically advantageous marriage (at the time, before Anthony became a known pervert).

Who can put a price on a Muslim Brotherhood woman becoming first lady of New York City?

I don´t for a NY second think that the Clintons, who pay for nothing that they owe, would foot the bill for this. It has to be the Muslim brotherhood/sisterhood who have financed Huma the Mole for such a time as this. Huma is the real danger and he is the idiot diversion. There is the model that follows the Clinton example.

This is where I fault Republican leadership, such that it is, and Republican spokespeople and the Romney campaign, for failing to point out the sheer hypocrisy of these so called public servants becoming millionaires (exactly how?) while attacking millionaires who actually earned their wealth. And I fault even more so the stupid lo-fo voters out there who believe that the Dems are for the little guy and the Republicans are not - all the time the likes of the Clintons, and now the Obamas, are acquiring millions from all their donors. And the media - crickets....

Not sure the Daily Caller knows whereof they speak. I have filled out many annual Federal disclosure forms and they do not ask for expenditures, only income and source and assets held and disposed of.

That said, I always wondered how Clinton could perform the marriage.

Let me get this straight. Weiner and Huma were supposedly unofficially and probably illegally married by a known liar, rapist, and a bent wiener whom himself is married to another serial liar who is just as apt as her husband at leaving bodies all over the world from DC to Benghazi.

Not only that, someone else paid for the Weiner´s wedding, and to boot, she is the smartest of the two, because she chose not to become a Weiner, and remained Huma Mahmood Abedin a Muslim whose roots point to the Muslim Brotherhood, another organization that leaves bodies all over the world.

I´m going to ask for a program... this IS complicated.

There is not much information in this article. Did Bill Clinton sign the marriage certificate and have it recorded? If not, who did? Or, was a marriage application never issued?

What makes a marriage legal is the recording of the application in the public records. Which must, of course, be by someone legally authorized. This information is so easy to get I don´t know why it has been ignored.

Regarding this wedding controversy...
"Hummer" and Huma... The S_Aud Couple...
both need to come clean...
simultaneously... mutually... and please Hurry! Hurry! Hurry!

To extend Weiner´s polling and political viability...
more dick-closure will be required.

Finally, on a more personal note... a philosophical perspective thru a one-eyed glans.

Only Weiner can beat Weiner.


Let Weiner beat Weiner.

He´s only beating himself.

The first rule of the politics of the other guy´s personal self-destruction is...

Make some popcorn and enjoy the spectacle...
And wave the DimWitz Potty... "Buh-Bye!"
As we can only hope....

(Btw, someone in Newd Dork City tell me... is Rudy Guiliani ineligible to run again?
Is it too late for Rudy to file and run now in this year´s mayoral contest?
Rudy should clean up on this one... both electorally and ridding us of this mess.)

In the wedding pictures, Weiner looks so ... unhappy. He really doesn´t want to be there!

So what I´d like to know is ... what was Huma thinking?

The man was an obvious creep, even before the revelations about his sexting came out. How could a woman interested in marriage and children be attracted to such a creature?

Which leads me to think that their marriage IS, in fact, a mere political arrangement. Huma must have seen him as an acceptable vehicle for her eventual political career, a la Hillary marrying (and staying with) Bill Clinton.

ROME - Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 disabled and elderly people Thursday - women and non-Catholics among them - in a pre-Easter ritual designed to show his willingness to serve others like a "slave." Francis´ decision in 2013 to perform the Holy Thursday ritual on women and Muslim inmates at a juvenile detention center helped define his rule-breaking papacy just two weeks after his election. It riled traditionalist Catholics, who pointed to the Vatican´s own regulations that the ritual be performed only on men since Jesus´ 12 apostles were men.

In Detroit´s unfolding saga, the only innocent victims are city residents. So if there is any case for a Motown bailout, it is to make the city more livable for them. However, that seems to be the main goal of neither the Democratic White House nor the state´s Republican governor -- both of whom have come up with nifty new schemes to shovel taxpayer largesse to city retirees. Just two weeks ago, Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr had been threatening to put a buzzsaw to the city´s $3.5 billion unfunded pension liabilities to lop off savings to “invest” in city services.

Most voters think the White House is trying to cover-up what happened in Benghazi and want Congress to continue to investigate the administration’s handling of the attack on the U.S. consulate there that killed four Americans. That’s according to a Fox News poll released Thursday. Sixty percent of voters want lawmakers to keep investigating what happened in Benghazi. That’s down from 65 percent who felt that way in November, and a high of 73 percent in early June 2013.

Obama, the No. 2 House leader said yesterday after a phone conversation with the president, should “stop his partisan messaging and begin to seriously work with Congress.” Hours before the president called Cantor, the White House had issued a statement in which Obama ripped House Republicans for favoring “extreme measures” and “seemingly preferring the status quo of a broken immigration system over meaningful reform.” “You’re always

Secretary of State John Kerry evidently runs a tight ship, given the paucity of leaks that emerge from his office. So we know he is organized and disciplined. He is also an energetic risk-taker, jumping into high-wire negotiations with Iran, and forcing the Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table -- enterprises that could likely end in failure and ruin his reputation. This is a man with character. By contrast, his predecessor at State, Hillary Clinton, appeared to take few risks and has been accused of using the position of secretary of state merely to burnish her resume in preparation

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything. And no, it’s not just the fact that having a grandchild could be personally fulfilling to Hillary and Bill (mazel tov, by the way), or that a cute baby would be a sweet cherry on top of Hillary’s already

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid on Friday stood by his statement regarding embattled Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying on KSNV’s What’s Your Point?, “If anyone thinks by any figment of their imagination that what happened up there last week was just people rallying to somebody that was oppressed, 600 people came in armed. They had practiced. They had maneuvered.” Reid continued, “They knew what they were doing. They set up snipers in strategic locations with sniper rifles. They had assault weapons. They had automatic weapons. And they boasted about the fact that they put women and children, in fact one

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations
