Well, they can’t back Weiner due to hisscandal but they can’t back someone else either which by default would hurt Huma because her Husband… Anthony Weiner will lose. Hillary cares very much for Huma and would not want to see her in pain. Huma Abedin lives with Weiner and is featured in his kick-off video too, leaving the Clinton’s with only the option of publically staying out.
1) Obama personally oversaw the OBL mission but he was not involved when White House staff were directly emailing the Energy Department to fund Obama-Donor-Run Solyndra despite the warnings of the Energy Department that the company will go bust.
2) Obama personally oversaw the OBL mission but was not involved in the deadly mess up (to put it mildly) known as Fast and Furious whose plan was to give guns to criminals in Mexico.
3) Obama personally oversaw the OBL mission but was not involved when the Department of Justice (DOJ) leaked documents to smear a whistel blower in Fast and Furious.
The ‘Fox News Sunday’ panel, Brit Hume, Kirsten Powers, Karl Rove and Dennis Kucinich discuss Benghazi, in the web exclusive Panel Plus. Rove begins at 2:55 and it takes three minutes. If you are mature enough and not a bias operative paid to spin for Obama, listen in! See Video
In my Audio Update of May 14, 2013, I discusses the paradox of many Hasidim who are enthusiastically pro-Republican all while collecting Medicaid and Food Stamps. Audio Here
In his Audio Update of 5/13/13, Yossi Gestetner explains how President Obama’s speech writers play around with words to be in both sides of an issue. Specifically, Gestetner notes how Obama ‘uses’ the word Terror without actually ‘calling’ terrorist attacks a terror attack. It’s an important distinction. Listen to the Audio
Judge Jeanine Pirro at Fox News explains in great detail all that’s wrong with Benghazi. See Video
Maggie Haberman: For more than three decades, New York City residents have had mayors who did their best – with varying degrees of success – to keep their personal lives off limits. Ed Koch was famous for it. So was Mike Bloomberg. Even the disclosures about Rudy Giuliani’s life were mostly born of the private messes he’d tried to keep behind the curtain.
That model has been upended in the past few months, as New Yorkers, in something of a post-therapeutic moment, have been braced by jarringly detailed disclosures about the marriages of one Democratic mayoral hopeful (Public Advocate Bill de Blasio) and one likely candidate (former Rep. Anthony Weiner).
Here is an excerpt of a lengthy Jewish Week article about the NYC Mayoral race: Thompson so far appears to have developed the broadest constituency among Jews, with strong ties to the Orthodox community of Brooklyn he has long courted and nurtured in his political career. On Sunday, the former board of education president and 2009 Democrat nominee for mayor attended Agudath Israel of America’s annual dinner. (All the major candidates were invited.)
The Jobbik Party of Hungary – the Party pushing now brazen anti-Semitism – is endlessly presented in the Jewish Media as being “Far-Right.” As a Political Conservative, I don’t feel obligated to defend or deny the existence of extremists on either end of the political spectrum. To the contrary, I condemn it regardless the source. But when members of the Jewish media and leadership try taking me on a ride, I like to step off and turn the wheel the other way.
J.J. Goldberg at the Forward, trying to show how “stupid” Gun Rights forces are, wrote that more Americans were killed this year by toddlers using guns than by terrorists. Well J.J. according to this report, two children die weekly in the U.S.A. from parents who run them over. 2,400 children per year are wounded from parents who run them over in a driveway; that’s ten times more than the 240 people who were injured in Boston. Both cases J.J. (cars and guns) are accidents; not policy. But using your snarky comparison, we should outlaw parents driving cars when their kids are under 10 years old.
Rebecca Soffer Writes: Happy Second Day of Jewish American Heritage Month. Today’s activity: Make cholent! Our people are into stews. So is it really surprising that the great American Crock-Pot originally was coined the Naxon Beanery All-Purpose Cooker after its Jewish inventor, Irving Naxon?
Naxon, who died in 1989 with more than 200 patents in his name, conceived an inexpensive and safe heating element inspired by his mother’s tales of making the traditional Sabbath meat-and-potato stew — a nearly 24-hour process – in her Lithuanian shtetl (his daughter recently wrote about her family memories for the Beyond Bubbie online food project). Not into the idea of cholent? Toss anything into a Crock-Pot, from lentils to grits to an entire chicken, and thank Mr. Naxon for making cooking so darn easy.
In your recent appearance on the Zev Brenner Show, you came on for one reason, but you missed the point, and we would really appreciate if you can answer this question.
The reason you appeared on the show was to defend the RJC in face of recent criticism, but you left the main question unanswered. Therefore I’m here on the behalf of our readers, as a political website catering mainly to Orthodox Jews, we really would like to know, why is it that the RJC chose to ignore the Orthodox Jewish electorate in NYC and elsewhere?
[CHART Below] 74% Jewish Children in NYC and likely a huge percentage elsewhere too, are Orthodox. There is nothing in the “Blueprint to Victory” of the Republican Jewish Coalition which shows their interest or strategy to make Orthodox Jews, especially Ultra-Orthodox/Hasidic Jews (the fastest growing and most politically conservative Jewish Group) part or central of their plan. To the contrary, the ad mentions that Jewish Voters in RJC polling had “real concern” about the GOP’s stance on special issues such as Gay Marriage. Really? The ‘Jewish Republican’ of 2016 and 2012 thinks the GOP is not liberal enough on these issues? What a joke.
In FIVE years from now, the Boston bombings will be a small blemish in our memories. Consider this via Fox:
“Jan. 24, 1975, a bomb goes off at historic Fraunces Tavern in New York City, killing four people. It was one of 49 bombings attributed to the Puerto Rican nationalist group FALN between 1974 and 1977 in New York… Also, Dec. 29, 1975, a bomb hidden in a locker explodes at the TWA terminal at New York’s LaGuardia Airport, killing 11 people and injuring 75. Palestinian, Puerto Rican and Croatian groups are suspected, but no arrests are made.”
Those bombings and deaths were apparently not even an issue in the 1980 elections. Really, find me news items or history books of the 1980 elections where those bombings were (broadly) discussed. Go out and poll it and I promise you 75% people don’t even know that five times more people died of terror in the U.S. in 1975 than in the Boston bombings
