The Internet Fired The Editor, Unless It Didn’t

Evil Internet blogger made a newspaper editor resign … unless he didn’t! When he talks about being a “whipping boy” to “one and all,” he’s obviously not talking about being censored; the context of the whole piece is that meanies like that one evil blogger are accusing him of showing bias. Well… now he admits the evil blogger was right. Now he admits all the readers’ observations about bias were true. And that, my friends, is kind of a big deal. Now, he all but admits that my conspiracy-dripping inquiry was pretty much spot-on. Now that he’s off the Tribune’s … Continue reading The Internet Fired The Editor, Unless It Didn’t

This Wasn’t Just Our Failure

This has been making the rounds, mostly approvingly, and I think some of it’s goat shit: Unlike the Tea Party, most left wingers don’t really believe their own ideology. They put partisanship first, or they put the color of a candidate’s skin or the shape of their genitals over the candidate’s policy. Identity is more important to them than how many brown children that politician is killing. So progressives have no power, because they have no principles: they cannot be expected to actually vote for the most progressive candidate, to successfully primary candidates, to care about policy first and identity … Continue reading This Wasn’t Just Our Failure

Odd & Sods: Falling Into Fall Edition

It was a long, grueling summer here in Debrisville. Fall didn’t fall until last week and it’s heating up a bit again, but I’m hoping for a period of running neither the air dish or heater. Now that I’ve bored you with that brief weather update on with my first omnibus post in eons. Spooked: I have a confession, I’m an espionage buff. I grew up reading John LeCarre and Graham Greene’s spy novels and I’ve had a lifelong fascination with the real life Cambridge Spy Ring. Right now I’m reading a biography of Wild Bill Donovan who established and … Continue reading Odd & Sods: Falling Into Fall Edition

Weekend Question Thread

Mr. A and I and our in-laws have spent the better part of the past two weekends putting up new bookshelves. There are books all over the house, in various states of organization, and boxes everywhere. The ferrets are confined to his office, much to Bucky’s rage and dismay, lest they crawl into a package and be returned to IKEA by mistake. When it’s done, it’s going to be amazing, but right now it looks like a furniture truck and Bob Villa got into an accident in the living room. What’s the biggest home improvement/construction project you’ve ever undertaken? A. Continue reading Weekend Question Thread

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – more catchup and flies edition

Good Monday morning, faithful followers! It’s time again for clearance on older drums of Freepitude, so let’s crack them open!

From WAY back in September – Weiner shizzle!

How Long Will Muslim Brotherhood Force Huma Abedin to Stay Married to Anthony Weiner? Godfather Politics ^ | 7/27/2013 | Dave Jolly

Posted on Monday, September 02, 2013 6:05:55 AM byIbJensen

Anthony Weiner was a promising Democratic congressman from New York’s 9th District which is located entirely within Brooklyn. First elected in 1999, Weiner easily won re-elections with no less than 59% of the vote. In 2005, he ran for Mayor of New York City and lost, but still remained a very popular congressman.

In 2009, Weiner, a Jew, got engaged to Huma Abedin, a Muslim and aide to then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. They married in 2010 and now have a son named Jordan Zain Weiner.

Last year, Weiner was caught sexting messages and nude images of himself, forcing him to resign from Congress in shame, but Abedin stood by him. Weiner is now running for Mayor of New York City again and he has been caught with even more sexting with over half a dozen different women. Weiner refuses to withdraw from the race and his popularity in New York does not seem to be diminished by the scandal. Once again, Abedin stands by her husband.

Huma Abedin is a devout Muslim from a powerful Muslim family. Her mother is Saleha Mahmoud Abedin, a professor and dean at Dar El-Hekma College in Saudi Arabia. She is also a prominent official in the Muslim Sisterhood, the female counterpart to the Muslim Brotherhood. Although Huma married a Jew, a mortal enemy of all Muslims, she is still accepted by her Muslim family and friends. Normally her marriage would have constituted her being disowned by the family and subjected to an honor killing.

So one has to beg the question why she had been allowed to marry a Jew and not face disgrace from her family and fellow Muslims?

I believe the answer can be found in a Muslim word ‘Muruna’. There are times when Muslim leadership believe it is more important to plant a spy to gain valuable information than it is for that spy to follow all Muslim law. It is not uncommon for Muslim leadership to push a woman into a relationship with a non-Muslim in order to gain the confidence and trust of an infidel. Once that trust has been gained, the Muslim woman can begin to exert some influence into the dealings of her husband and in the process learn important secrets that she can pass on to her Muslim handlers back home.

I believe Huma Abedin is a Muruna and that her marriage to the Rep. Anthony Weiner was planned and sanctioned by the Muslim Brotherhood. At the time, Weiner had high expectations of furthering his political career, possibly a run for senate seat once held by Hillary Clinton or even higher. Having a husband in the US Congress would be a great asset to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Then Weiner was disgraced and ended up resigning from Congress. If that was the end of his political career, it would seem that a divorce would have been proper, but for some reason, it wasn’t to be. This makes me wonder if Weiner’s run for mayor could have been prompted by the strong encouragement of his wife, Abedin. The Muslim Brotherhood has invested too much into Abedin’s marriage with Weiner to throw it down the tubes so soon, so he is being advised or pressured to run for office again.

If Weiner loses the mayoral election, then perhaps the Muslim Brotherhood will advise her to get a divorce and concentrate on her position as an advisor to the State Department. Abedin will still be a valuable asset to the Muslim Brotherhood, even without Weiner because of her relationship with Hillary Clinton. She was Clinton’s number one confidant while she was Secretary of State. If Hillary manages to win the presidential election in 2016, you can bet your bottom dollar that Abedin will be by her side in some key role, enabling her to pass many state secrets back to her Muslim Brotherhood family.

In my opinion, Huma Abedin is a dangerous enemy of the United States and should be treated as such.

*************************************

Democrats, like Hillary and Obama, surround themselves with the enemy
(In this case, “the enemy” being someone the Freeper doesn’t regard as white)
because they have so much in common. Weener marrying Huma was a stroke of the bazaar(sic).

Huma’s no beauty,

Well, she’s no Ann Coulter, that’s for sure:

HumaAbedin

but she’s a damn site(sic) better looking that the pencil-necked geek Weener. What she could gain from this scrawny pervert is difficult to fathom.

OK Freepers – what’s the REAL reason for this “enemy”‘s Tammy Wynette impression?
To: IbJensen

Weiner was a member of Congress with the perfect blackmail qualifications. It was a setup from the beginning otherwise Huma would have already been dead for marrying a Jew.

Of course! I can’t even count the number of women in New York who’ve been assassinated for marrying Jewish men. And he deliberately got caught sexting girls to make the blackmail easier.
If only he’d been a Repub and got caught sexting boys….
To: IbJensen

The marriage to Weiner is a beard for her association with Hillary.
Weiner is nothing.
Hillary is the ticket .
As Secretary of State Hillary was Huma’s source of information.
If Hillary can be elected President sleeping with Hillary will be Abedins source in the White House.

Michelle Bachman suggested Abedin be investigated,

Michelle Bachman barks at passing cars.

and Obama the head Muslims and even many Republicans in Congress attacked Bachman unmercifully. Bachman was right. Abedin has no business being associated with people in high places in our country. She is a Muslim spy IMO.

Bachman’s a Muslim spy?

She will stay with Weiner as long as he works as a beard for Abedins lesbian association with Hillary, until Hillary loses her run for President. When Hillary is no longer useful Abedin will make a move out of her disgusting job as lover to a fat nasty foul mouthed witch

Malaka Of The Week: Sharon Schuetz

There’s a new truther bandwagon pulling into the station, if, in fact, bandwagons pull into stations but that’s neither here nor there. Recently, a pregnant woman fainted at the White House while the President was holding a ACA press event. According to this week’s “honoree”Dr. Sharon Schuetz it’s part of some deep dark plot: For some strange reason, Obama has to have props around him when he does one of his con-jobs in the Rose Garden, or wherever he chooses to receive his worshipers. This was no different, except that he had animated props this time. Although it was well … Continue reading Malaka Of The Week: Sharon Schuetz

Rest Easy

Frank Perconte: James Madio, the actor who portrayed Frank Perconte in the series, watched the premiere with him. “It’s incredible how these guys operate, because the minute the show ended, the first thing he asked was why he didn’t see enough of his best friend, George Luz. He wasn’t worried how he looked, he was worried about the guy who was at his side throughout,” Madio said. Madio and Mr. Perconte became close friends, and a few years after the release they and some of the men Mr. Perconte served with went to Normandy on the anniversary of D-Day. Afterward … Continue reading Rest Easy

Or They Know Resale is a Forlorn Hope

I can’t imagine why resale value isn’t a major consideration for home improvement anymore: Q: For a while, the industry was saying that future resale value was driving consumers’ kitchen design choices, which seemed to result in an ocean of beige, which they perceived as “safe.” Is that still the case? A: In our survey, resale value seemed to be a motivation for about a third of the people who were remodeling, so it is meaningful but not the most important thing. That’s been consistent for the past couple of years. They’re doing things they like and picking things that … Continue reading Or They Know Resale is a Forlorn Hope

Hook(er)ed on Halloween

We spent the majority of the day getting ready for The Midget’s school Halloween event. The Missus baked cookie bars, I bought earplugs… General stuff that has to happen when you get a K through 5 group of children together in a gym with little to do other than scream and mainline sugar. The costumes the kids were wearing were the standard princesses, elves, Harry Potter characters and super heroes, although we did spot at least one Dr. Who and some kid wearing what amounts to a spandex gimp suit. The school, firmly rooted in the Catholic faith, asked for … Continue reading Hook(er)ed on Halloween

Just Plain Creepy

From Album 5 This could go a long way in explaining old Tailgunner Ted. I mean, why should you mingle with “minor ivies” when you’re an anointed king? In a sermon last year at an Irving, Texas, megachurch that helped elect Ted Cruz to the United States Senate, Cruz’ father Rafael Cruz indicated that his son was among the evangelical Christians who are anointed as “kings” to take control of all sectors of society, an agenda commonly referred to as the “Seven Mountains” mandate, and “bring the spoils of war to the priests”, thus helping to bring about a prophesied … Continue reading Just Plain Creepy
