Huma Abedin to take break
from job with Hillary Clinton

Politico, by Maggie Haberman

Original Article

Posted By:BaseballFan, 7/31/2013 9:56:21 AM

Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s transition office chief and the wife of embattled New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner, is expected to take extended vacation time from her job with the former first lady in the coming days, sources told POLITICO. The move is not a leave of absence, two sources familiar with the move insisted, and it’s not precisely clear when she will depart for her vacation time from her day job.

Comments:
This is the ´go away until those idiot voters forget the scandal´ approach. If Hilliary! is elected POTUS in ´16, does anyone really thing that Abedin won´t be SoS? Unthinkable.

Reminds me of Hillary´s healthcare debacle and Travelgate scandal back in ´93-´94. Queen Hillary was such an embarrassment that Mr. Bill ordered that she be kept under wraps for a while.

Same thing here, except it´s Huma that needs to be hid this time.

Nice try Witchy-poo, but we will remember.

If Weiner isn´t careful, Huma will not be allowed anywhere near Hillary unless she divorces him. Weiner is doing great harm to Hillary.

Notice how Politico slips in "former first lady". I´m surprised Maggie "Hag"erman didn´t capitalize it for emphasis.

This is how they do it, folks. Subliminal suggestion, just like the movie theaters flashing popcorn, hot dogs, and Coca Cola onto the screen for a tenth of a second or so. That way you see it but only subconsciously.

The theaters don´t do that anymore? Yeah, right.

As asserted on numerous blogs, etc., Anthony married Huma for political advantage, and Huma married Anthony for political expediency with, supposedly, the blessing of both Clintoons.

Fast forward to the present day and we have a political threesome involving one tom cat and two kitties with all sorts of intrigues swirling about which could even affect Bubba´s return to the White House for a legally prevented third term.

If the DIC (deceiver in chief) is looking for a legitimate distraction for his four plus years of malfeasance, this might qualify as a scandal -- even a phony one -- using a little bit of imagination.

Except, #16, if the bloggers are correct, Huma and Weiner and not legally married. Slick Clinton officiated at the "wedding" and he had no legal authority in NY to marry the two. This is most likely a sham marriage all the way around. Bill & Hillary, part deux.

As he is wont to do, #13 (ZM) boils the whole controversy to two very accurate words. Huma is to the PIAPS as Reggie Love is to Zippy.

Not only that, but the contemptuous pervert Weiner is now tied, at least tangentially, to the PIAPS, which doesn´t do her pResidential ambitions much good. The Sink Emperor himself is reportedly steamed at Weiner, and is seeking a plastic bottle of mustard and a potato bread hot dog roll. I think he said, "Ciao" if he didn´t mean "Chow."

Benghazi could end the political ambitions of Secretary Ample Ankles for good if the living room rug is pulled off that smelly mess. I would bet that either she, Obama, or more likely, both of them are directly implicated in the non-action that resulted in four deaths and dozens of injuries to our people.

Do I think any daylight will shine on the several scandals that might destroy this administration? No. Cynicism prevails; Diogenes lives within my skin. But I have been wrong before. Maybe I am this time.

Anger is brewing among service members and veterans groups after the publication of a New York Times op-ed that tries to link veterans and white supremacists. The piece came just days after a 73-year-old white supremacist and veteran, Frazier Glenn Miller, was arrested in an attack that killed three people at a Jewish center in Overland Park, Kansas. In the column, op-ed contributor Kathleen Belew writes: In 2009, the Department of Homeland Security issued a nine-page report detailing the threat of domestic terrorism by the white power movement. This short document outlined no specific threats, but rather a set of

Maryland health officials are investigating possible cases of food poisoning at what may be the worst-ever venue — a gathering of government and industry leaders attending a national Food Safety Summit. At least four people called the Baltimore City Health Department this week to report that they developed diarrhea, nausea and other symptoms about 12 hours after eating a meal April 9 during the conference at the Baltimore Convention Center. That was midway through the annual meeting held April 8 to 10 that attracted more than 1,500 food safety professionals, including staff from federal agencies as well as businesses such

Russia and Ukraine struck a deal Thursday to end unrest in eastern Ukraine stoked by pro-Russian militants, Secretary of State John Kerry said. The militants must refrain from violence, lay down their illegal weapons and return seized buildings to their rightful owners, Kerry said. In return, Ukraine agreed to offer amnesty to protesters who had not committed capital crimes. Kerry called the agreement “a good day’s work,” but warned that the United States would impose further sanctions on Russia if it didn’t see progress soon. “None of us leave here with the sense that the job is done because the

DENVER — Authorities say a Wyoming college student who jumped to his death from a Denver hotel balcony ate more than the recommended serving of a marijuana cookie. Police reports released Thursday said 19-year-old Levy Thamba Pongi consumed a little more than one cookie that his friend purchased from a pot shop. The reports say a clerk told his friends to cut it into six pieces and eat one piece at a time. The friends did so, but it´s unclear from the reports whether Pongi heard the advice.

Banana Republicans: New Head Of

On a local website co-managed by Shaun Kenney, the newly appointed executive director of the Virginia GOP, a colleague of Kenney’s admitted last night that Kenney’s political fundraising and consulting firm is employed by House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Cantor is now campaigning to retain his seat in Virginia’s 7th Congressional District. Cantor’s challenger for the GOP primary on June 10 — Dave Brat — is politically on Cantor’s right, and is thus receiving national interest from conservative/Tea Party groups that are disappointed with Cantor’s record as majority leader. The magnitude of the revelation can not be overstated: GOP voters

U.S. Sen. Angus King, an independent from Maine, said he’s considering caucusing with Republicans if they win a majority of seats in the Senate during the midterm elections. Shortly after he voted with Republicans on Wednesday against the Paycheck Fairness Act, a piece of legislation that Democrats have prioritized ahead of the November elections, King was asked whether he might align with Republicans. Since he was elected in 2012, the two-term Maine governor has caucused with Democrats and voted with them on most issues. “I’ll make my decision at the time based on what I think is best for Maine,”

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep.

The U.S. trade deficit climbed to the highest level in five months in February as demand for American exports fell while imports increased slightly. The deficit increased to $42.3 billion, which was 7.7 percent above the January imbalance of $39.3 billion, the Commerce Department reported Thursday. (Snip) The administration is negotiating one trade agreement with Japan and 10 other Pacific nations. The other agreement would be a trans-Atlantic deal with the 28-nation European Union. The deals would lower trade barriers and are seen by supporters as a good way to boost U.S. export sales. But critics, including many labor unions,

Spokesman Kevin Tedesco said Tuesday that the loud car audio has been edited out of the online version of the story on Tesla founder Elon Musk. Anchor Scott Pelley reported the story, and CBS said he wasn´t aware of the added audio ahead of time. The revving sound, as opposed to the much quieter windlike noise of a Tesla, was noticed by the auto enthusiast website

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.

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

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

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

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."
