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
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 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?
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....
Well,well, well. Isn´t this interesting? You bet the MB paid for this. That is why it isn´t on his disclosure list. He just showed up to be married. Didn´t care where the money came from. She doesn´t either. And now we find out Clinton had no standing to marry them, LOL!!!! And the scandals just keep on comin´.
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.
Let´s see now...Clinton is a convicted felon, forced to surrender his law license. Hillary had to take the bar exam more than once and the result was probably fixed. Hilary & Huma are lesbian lovers. Together the Clintons are the largest political,criminal conspiracy in our history. What is Hollywood waiting for??

This whole campaign was designed to burn through $4 million in Weenie´s campaign funds that he had left over, to grease Hilly´s friends and backers. Once it´s gone he´ll be toast (and probably the sham marriage as well.)
He may be making a short dive from a tall balcony when it all finally hits him.
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.) (Couldn´t hurt his career, either, it would in fact jumpstart it again... just sayin´)
This begs the further question of where do all these politicans get their money? It´s no wonder why they try to hang onto power at any cost, even disgrace to the family. Im so sick of all of them, but especially the ones who play us for such suckers. I still say term limits would go a long way to clean house. I sure don´t trust the IRS to look into this the way they did the Tea Party. Crooks ..all of them!
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.
I’ve never been flogged in the public square, but now I have a rough idea what it’s like. On Thursday, Harvey Weinstein, the US distributor of the Judi Dench-Steve Coogan film “Philomena,” placed a full-page, color attack ad in The New York Times that screamed my name in blood-red letters. “The New York Times, Los Angeles Times and USA Today ALL PRAISE ‘PHILOMENA’ WITH A 92 % CERTIFIED FRESH SCORE ON Rotten Tomatoes,” read the ad. “BUT THE NEW YORK POST’S KYLE SMITH HAS A DIFFERENT OPINION. ‘ANOTHER HATEFUL ATTACK ON CATHOLICS.’ ” The ad (now brightening the wall over
Dayna Morales, the server who claimed last month to have been left a note about her “lifestyle” instead of a tip, was fired from her restaurant Sunday, and is reportedly returning the donations she received in the outpouring of sympathy after her story went viral. Morales, an openly-gay server at Gallop Asian Bistro in Bridgewater, NJ became a cause celebre after she posted a receipt informing her she had not been tipped because of her lifestyle. But her story began to unravel when the couple who left the receipt disputed Morales’ story, and provided bank statements showing they had in fact tipped
Following his lengthy interview with President Obama, Chris Matthews attacked his GOP opponents as less patriotic than Nelson Mandela‘s opponents. Mark Levin took Matthews to the woodshed on Friday for this rather strenuous comparison. Levin said at the outset that Matthews is most assuredly “off his rocker,” and took a shot at the “conga line of freaks” at MSNBC before playing the audio of Matthews attacking Obama’s opponents. Levin called him “one sick S.O.B.” and a “little puke” for having the gall to attack any critics of the president when he and his “left-wing kooks” did everything in their power to
The White House on Friday criticized as inaccurate a report in POLITICO Magazine claiming that President Barack Obama and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius met just once since the signing of the Affordable Care Act more than three years ago. “The published report that was written by an advocate is based on a ridiculously false premise,” White House press secretary Jay Carney said during a press briefing. “Cabinet secretaries don’t regularly get entered into the White House visitors logs, [though] they come frequently. Kathleen Sebelius comes frequently, and she meets frequently with the president.”
PACHUCA, Mexico — Federal police blocked access Friday to a central Mexico hospital where six people were reported to have been admitted with radiation exposure. An official familiar with the case confirmed Mexican media reports that the six have been admitted to the general hospital in the city of Pachuca and may have been exposed to a stolen source of cobalt-60. The official, who spoke Friday on condition of anonymity because she was not authorized to speak to the media, said only one person was dizzy and vomiting, which are symptoms of radiation poisoning.
One of the patients featured in the TIME cover story I wrote last March--"Bitter Pill: Why Medical Bills Are Killing Us"--was Emilia Gilbert, a school-bus driver. Gilbert was 61 years old in 2008 when she slipped and fell one evening in her backyard in Fairfield, Conn. She was taken to the emergency room at Bridgeport Hospital, where she was treated for some cuts and a broken nose. She left a few hours later with a bill for $9,418, which included $6,538 for CT scans and $239 for a routine blood test. The charges, I found, were based on something called
Fox News Channel host Geraldo Rivera and the hosts of Fox & Friends openly mocked MSNBC and host Chris Matthews on Friday for his performance during an exclusive interview with President Barack Obama. Rivera called Matthews a “fan” of the president and the hosts dismissed the network as a place that does not specialize in “objective” analysis. Rivera reacted to Matthews’ interview of the president by saying that he has worked with the MSNBC host in the past and likes him personally. “But to pretend that Chris is a journalist, per se, I think that’s sort of artificial,” Rivera observed. “He’s a
For almost a decade now, Chris Matthews has served as a barometer for baby-boom progressives´ attitude toward Barack Obama -- from the "thrill" that went up his leg when he heard the presidential candidate speak in 2008 to the utter disappointment following last October´s debate in Denver. That´s why Matthews´ interview with Obama, which takes place at 2 p.m. today and airs at 7 p.m. on MSNBC, is a crucial one for the president, and for MSNBC. For Obama: The last time the MSNBC vet interviewed Obama, at West Chester University in 2008, it was a love-in, the "thrill" having traveled up
After the 2012 presidential election failed to go their way, Republicans were reminded ad nauseam that Barack Obama had built a winning collection of supporters and that the GOP had not. The Democratic coalition, insisted partisans both inside and outside the media, spelled potential death for the GOP and for the conservative ideology that generally underpins it. The Republican party was just too old, too white, and too male — three terrible things to be, naturally — and it was destined to be buried by demographics. As the year came to a close, and everyone tried his hand at a
It seems the Super Bowl has fallen victim to political correctness. They’ve decided to ban a pro-Second Amendment – and pro-veteran – Super Bowl ad by Daniel Defense, a company that sells guns, detailing a father who declares that he will protect his family. “No one has the right to tell me how to defend them," he says. The banning promoted this epic response from Colion Noir, a football fan, attorney - and NRA News commentator - who destroys the NFL for their hypocrisy. He adds, “This type of selective censorship is really bordering on the line of social lunacy where
Enrollment surge or no enrollment surge, the next Obamacare challenge is a big one: How will the White House make sure all those people with canceled policies get new coverage by Jan. 1? At the rate the signups are going — even with the speedier, newly functioning Obamacare website — the administration has a vast distance to travel before the estimated 4 to 5 million people with canceled policies get new health coverage.
Mayor-elect Bill de Blasio has named William J. Bratton his Police Commissioner. In returning to the job he held under Rudolph Giuliani in the nineteen-nineties, Bratton will be in charge of fulfilling one of de Blasio’s most prominent campaign promises: to end the stop-and-frisk tactics that were such a prominent part of Michael Bloomberg’s record as Mayor. But Bratton’s views on stop-and-frisk may be considerably different from those of his new boss. In May of this year, I profiled Shira Scheindlin, the federal judge who presided over the class-action lawsuit that challenged the N.Y.P.D.’s stop-and-frisk policies. In the course of reporting
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by

Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
One definition of a pathological liar is someone who lies where the truth would serve just as well. When President Obama’s uncle, Onyango Obama, was arrested in 2011 for drunk driving, the truth — that Obama had stayed with his uncle years earlier for several weeks as a Harvard law student — would have served the president just fine. No potential Obama voter would have held it against him that an uncle he had stayed with two decades earlier was picked up for DUI. Yet the White House went with a lie, claiming that Obama had never met his uncle. Now that
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
Although the jobless rate in November fell to its lowest level since he took office, President Obama called on Republican lawmakers Saturday to spend tens of billions on unemployment benefits that are set to expire this month. “It shouldn’t be a partisan issue,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address. But he said the “economic lifeline” is in jeopardy. “All because Republicans in this Congress — which is on track to be the most unproductive in history — have so far refused to extend it” Mr. Obama said. If Congress doesn’t act before lawmakers leave on their holiday break, about
