Posts Tagged ‘Anthony Weiner’

Huma Abedin is Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff, a post she has risen to after long years on Hillary’s staff having started as an intern when Hillary was FLOTUS.  She is of Indian-Pakistani descent, but is an American (born here) with a pretty high security clearance.  She is a Muslim-American married to a Jewish-American, former Congressman Anthony Weiner, and the mother of an adorable six-month-old boy, Jordan.  She and Anthony recently gave a joint interview to People Magazine.


Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, former presidential candidate, has bizarrely and persistently claimed that Huma has ties to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, the party from which newly inaugurated Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi resigned after being declared the winner of the election, and therefore is a mole within the State Department with access to America’s top diplomat.

An amusing take on her accusations was posted in WaPo today.

Michele Bachmann vs. Huma Abedin: ‘The Ramadan Conspiracy’

By Arsalan Iftikhar

In the warped universe where this American currently resides, there remains only one heroic person brave enough to save our beloved United States from secretly being taken over by a falafel-eating, Mecca-praying and Ramadan-fasting cabal of sinister Muslims duplicitously bent upon imposing Islamic sharia law upon our golden shores.

Nope, the hero of this story is not Jason Bourne. Her name is actually Michele Bachmann.

Not surprisingly, that paragon of truth in investigative bloviating, Glenn Beck (I shall spare you from looking at his picture.  You know what he looks like), has supported Bachmann’s McCarthyesque campaign against the woman who, last summer, also via People Magazine,  leaked, to everyone’s delight, the contents of Hillary Clinton’s bag: mesh zipper bags, hand sanitizer, Evian mineral water spray for her face because of the dry air on the plane where she lives.   (Yes I did go running to Harmon’s and bought some.  I had to ask for it,  and the clerk turned to another clerk and asked why this stuff was going like hotcakes.  Heh-heh – because Hillary Clinton – who has beautiful skin – uses it!  Huma said so!)

So now here’s Huma – defenseless.  Even her husband can’t really do anything for her, disgraced as he has been and the subject of his own rumors this week of resuming his mayoral run in NYC.  AND THEN A HERO COMES ALONG!


First, a real hero, the war kind, from Bachmann’s own party.

John McCain defends Huma Abedin against Michele Bachmann

John McCain took to the Senate floor today to discuss Huma Abedin—known variously for her work at the State Department under Hillary Clinton and for her marriage to sexting ex-congressman Anthony Weiner. Is McCain perhaps a People magazine subscriber, using his time in the chamber to congratulate Abedin on the charming family photo unveiled by the mag today?

Alas, no. McCain was defending Abedin against recent accusations made by Rep. Michele Bachmann that Abedin’s security clearance should be questioned due to alleged ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. “I understand how painful and injurious it is when a person’s character, reputation, and patriotism are attacked without concern for fact or fairness,” McCain said according to prepared remarks. “It is for that reason that I rise today to speak in defense of Huma Abedin.”

McCain’s condemnation of Bachmann’s remarks was quickly echoed by fellow Republican heavy-hitters, Speaker John Boehner (honorably discharged because of a bad back after enlisting in the Navy during the Vietnam War),  Senator ( and decorated Air Force veteran) Lindsey Graham,  and the cherry on the castigate-Bachmann cake, her former campaign manager Ed Rollins whose remarks indicate that she struggles when attempting to deal with facts.  From the other side of the aisle,  Democratic Congressman Keith Ellison, also a Muslim-American, spoke out.

DeHoS accords all of these heroes Gold Medals of Decency You guys rock! 

Those who forget the past are condemned to repeat it.

To all of our Muslim Homegirls and boys, we wish you a Happy Ramadan!

The Homegirls and Homeboys would like to dedicate this powerful Youtube, courtesy of Team Hillary Clinton, to Vincent “Vinny” Albanese who was laid to rest today.

Vincent Albanese, firefighter who worked at WTC site, laid to rest

August 5, 2010 By STACEY ALTHERR. AND BEN WIEDER.  stacey.altherr@newsday.com., benjamin.wieder@newsday.com

As bagpipers played “Going Home” under summer’s blue skies Thursday, more than 100 city firefighters dressed in their formal blue uniforms, as well as friends and family, said goodbye to Vincent Albanese.

The retired New York City firefighter who worked rescue and recovery at the World Trade Center site died of cancer Saturday, just one day after Congress voted down a measure that would have…

The guys and gals went to “The Pile” for months.  The fire burned until mid-February, yes, for FIVE MONTHS!  They were there, every day, breathing that smoke.  After the fire finally was extinguished, they continued, until the pile was no longer a pile.

Hillary Clinton, as a Senator, fought for medical care for these heroes.  Who among us would have gone down there as they did?  Daily, pulling the dead out of the rubble, clearing the rubble in all kinds of weather?  Hillary fought for them, but no longer can.  I remember the day she accepted Secretary of State publicly.  There were moments when there was a catch in her throat,  There were many moments when her face betrayed a sadness.  I believe the necessity of leaving this battle behind her contributed to that sadness.  So, yes!  Thumbs up and kudos to Anthony Weiner for picking up the gauntlet and fighting for the unsung heroes of 9/11.  We applauded them that day in September, as they drove DOWNtown, while refugees of the attacks limped uptown like so many refugees of Sherman’s attack on Atlanta.  We must remember that they did what Hillary Clinton told US to do.  They kept going.  Every day.  And MANY (900 +or-) have become seriously sick.

So the Homies, among us many who saw the towers burn in person, not on TV, applaud Anthony Weiner as he, too keeps going.  We applaud J.C. at Team Hillary Clinton for his masterful video, as well!  Let us never forget, and let us do the RIGHT thing!

Join us at Team Hillary Clinton!

Please join Team Hillary in writing the Republican Party and Demand that they do the right thing…

And Vinny Albanese … bless you!  Bless your soul.  Eternal rest grant unto you.  May your soul and the souls of all the faithful departed  rest in peace.  Amen.
