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.

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.)

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!"

(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?

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.

Attorney General Eric Holder‘s planned meeting with mainstream media outlets’ Washington bureau chiefs have been stalled after the Justice Department indicated that the conversations would be off-the-record. The New York Times‘ executive editor Jill Abramson was the first to decline the invitation, and shortly after the AP, CNN, CBS News and The Huffington Post followed suit. With much of the debate over the DOJ’s subpoena guidelines revolving around reporter James Rosen, Fox News clearly has a vested interest in the outcome of the meeting.

Here’s a thought for the day: Most people are “nice”, but Christians should be nice with a purpose. I am not a fan of the sitcom Rev, which depicts a vicar trying to be kind to his parishioners – with hilarious consequences. His congregation is small, full of delinquents, and the eponymous clergymen is often driven to drink by their unholy antics. Justin Welby disagrees with the show’s depiction of Anglican life because he notes that many churches are growing. The Rev’s, by contrast, conforms to a self-lacerating vision of Christianity as nice but niche. But self-laceration is the stock-in-trade of the

Louisiana Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu, in a neck-and-neck race for re-election, is taking a lot of criticism over a new ad -- her first this season -- depicting herself taking on "Washington" to protect the interests of Louisiana´s oil and gas industry. What Landrieu did to invite the ridicule was to re-create for her ad producers her own performance in a Senate hearing -- complete with set, supporting cast, fake nameplate, and even phony news chyrons -- to show her standing up for her state. The unspoken message of the ad -- something Landrieu could never say directly -- is that

Mrs. Clinton was unable to cite any specific achievement, though she did make the rather dubious claim that “I think we really restored American leadership in the best sense.” Even some of her most ardent admirers couldn’t figure out a good answer to the question about her greatest achievement, during a discussion on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” As Ed

Last week, the president’s lap dog blew his dog whistle. In case you didn’t know, in politics a “dog whistle” is coded language that has a superficial meaning for everybody, but also a special resonance for certain constituencies. Using dog whistles lets politicians deny they meant to say anything nasty, bigoted, or controversial. Speaking to the National Action Network the day after a testy but racially irrelevant exchange with Republican members of a House panel, Attorney General Eric Holder said, “The last five years have been defined . . . by lasting reforms even in the face of unprecedented, unwarranted, ugly,

The administration’s “smart diplomacy” does not include providing aid to those who fight internal oppression or outside aggression and whose victory potentially would obviate the need for direct U.S. action. Hence, President Obama gave Iran’s Green Revolution the cold shoulder in June 2009. He denied aid, and then dragged his feet on delivering aid to non-jihadi rebels in Syria. Now, it should come as no surprise, he is unwilling to provide Ukraine with military aid or intelligence to defend itself against Russian aggression.

The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you

Toddlers show racial bias when picking playmates, a study reveals. They also take account of how fairly others behave. Researchers tested the reaction of white 15-month-olds as toys were distributed. Two white adults divided the toys, one equally and the other unequally. Seventy per cent of the toddlers chose to play with the researcher who distributed the toys fairly. But in a second test, when one researcher favoured a white recipient over an Asian one, they picked the ‘fair’ researcher less often, the journal Frontiers in Psychology reports. And the babies are more likely to help those who share the same ethnicity, which is known as

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast
