    Pro-Life Republican Could Pull Off Upset in New York Race by Andrew Bair | LifeNews.com | 9/9/11 11:39 AMRepublicans are poised to pull off a major upset in Tuesday’s special election in New York to fill the vacant seat left by disgraced pro-abortion Rep. Anthony Weiner (D). According to a Siena Research Poll released Friday, pro-life Republican Bob Turner holds a 6-point lead over pro-abortion Democrat David Weprin. Turner has even won the endorsements of prominent New York City Democrats including former mayor Ed Koch and Assemblyman Dov Hikind.With Weprin’s campaign in jeopardy in a reliably blue district, the...
  • Republican’s lead in N.Y. election for Weiner’s seat shows Democrats’ vulnerability

    New York’s 9th Congressional District isn’t the likeliest place for a national political referendum. Vice President Al Gore won it with 67 percent of the vote in 2000, and Barack Obama carried it by 11 percentage points eight years later. It has been held by a string of high-profile Democrats — including Sen. Chuck Schumer (N.Y.) and the late Geraldine Ferraro — for decades. And yet, the special election set for Tuesday in the Brooklyn and Queens areas between state Assemblyman David Weprin (D) and businessman Bob Turner (R) — a race occasioned by the scandal and subsequent resignation of...

    The race to succeed former Rep. Anthony Weiner in New York's 9th congressional district was never supposed to be close. No Republican has ever been elected to the House in the largely Democratic stronghold that covers parts of Brooklyn and Queens. But the weak national economy, disenchantment with President Barack Obama, and New York-centric clashes over Israel and gay marriage have made the contest surprisingly competitive. Democrats now are scrambling to defend the seat. It came open in June after Weiner, a 7-term Democrat and feisty champion of liberal causes, resigned in a sexting scandal. Party leaders selected 55-year old...

    Democratic congressional candidate David Weprin isn't denying accusations that his campaign volunteers tried to spy on his rival's headquarters to send back intel. In an interview with NBC New York, Weprin tried to change the subject, saying the story is a "distraction" and that he can't be responsible for all the actions of his campaign workers. "I don't know," Weprin said. "I'm the candidate. I can't control who goes to everything."

Weprin was tripped up in a recent interview with the New York Daily News editorial board when asked the size of the national debt. The Daily News reported that he had a “deer in the headlights look” and then said “[a]bout 4 trillion.” According to the most recent Department of Treasury statistics, the country’s total debt stands at about $14.7 trillion....

Ferraro, Charles E. Schumer andAnthony D. Weiner to Washington. But it was there that Dale Weiss, a 64-year-old Democrat, approached the Republican running for Congress in a special election and, without provocation, blasted the president for failing to tame runaway federal spending. “We need to cut Medicaid,” she declared, “but he won’t do that.” She shook her head in disgust. “He is a...

    Nervous state Democrats are flooding voters with mailings blasting Republican candidate Bob Turner in the hotly contested 9th Congressional District, upping the ante in the closer-than-expected race to succeed disgraced ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner. With President Obama's standing in the polls in free fall, the state Democratic Committee's mailings to Queens and Brooklyn residents accuse Turner of being a "Tea Party extremist" who wants to dismantle Social Security and Medicare. Turner struck back with a "robo-call" from former Mayor Ed Koch yesterday, slamming Democratic rival David Weprin for lying to scare senior citizens. "Weprin should be ashamed of himself," Koch said....

Thankfully for the couple, after putting their Queen's two-bedroom apartment back on the market - after quietly taking it off during the scandal - they have finally found a buyer. Their 875-square-foot home on Ascan Avenue was listed at $449,000 in June.

    After President Barack Obama revealed the suspect status of his support for Israel — and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wowed crowds with a sternly-worded address to a special joint session of Congress — some speculated Jewish American support for Obama would wane. But a new Gallup poll out yesterday shows a large majority still approve of the president. Jewish Americans gave President Barack Obama a 60% job approval rating in June, down from 68% in May, but statistically unchanged from 64% in April. Thirty-two percent of U.S. Jews now disapprove of the job Obama is doing, similar to their...

On July 6, the president will answer questions tweeted to #AskObama live from the White House via webcast. Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey will moderate, and Twitter will use its own curation methods to choose the questions. Some portion of the live audience will be drawn from the 2.25 million people who follow @whitehouse — making the event not just a townhall but a ‘Tweetup.’ Those visitors won’t ask in-person questions, but White House Director of New Media Macon Phillips...

    Anthony Weiner's wife is taking time off from her senior job with the State Department -- as well as time off from the randy former representative, The Post has learned. While Weiner, 46, heads to an "intensive" rehab program to recover from the sexting scandal that cost him his congressional career, his 35-year-old spouse, Huma Abedin, will be relaxing at an undisclosed location. "She is definitely taking time off away from her husband and chilling," a source said. "And he's going some place for at least a couple of weeks."

In a dazzling display of arrogance, disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner is trying to insert himself back into politics -- calling power brokers and would-be candidates for his old seat, hoping they'll let him play a role in choosing his own successor, The Post has learned. Weiner, who became a national dirty joke after he was caught sexting young women, now wants to be a kingmaker. He was a leading candidate for the 2013 race to replace Mayor Bloomberg until his political downfall earlier this month, though his fund-raising account still is bulging.

This is an unusual investigation that does not primarily involve Islamists. Instead, it is focused on elements of the old international communist networks that many people mistakenly thought had faded away with the collapse of the Soviet Union. Those under investigation...

However, it is being reported that he has been caught making comments that are vile and defamatory toward Jewish women. If he were not Jewish, they would be considered anti-Semitic.

Liberal Democrats are not hard wired to do things for any greater good save for that of the Democrat Party. Those who watched his "pro forma" apology and resignation last week suspected there was more to the story and he was falling on his sword to hide something.

Furthermore, Huma Abedin's brother, Hassan, "is listed as a fellow and partner with a number of Muslim Brotherhood members." Hassan works at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies (OCIS) at Oxford University. The Egyptian Al-Azhar University, well-known for a curriculum that encourages extremism and terrorism, is active in establishing links with OCIS.

    Keith Olbermann hints at Anthony Weiner talk show on Al Gore's networkBy Corbett B. Daly June 17, 2011 6:14 PM That was fast. Within hours after Anthony Weiner announced his resignation from Congress, former MSNBC gabber Keith Olbermann suggested he may hire the soon-to-be-former New York lawmaker for a talk show on former Vice President Al Gore's fledgling television network, Current TV. Olbermann, appearing on comedian Jimmy Fallon's late night television program Thursday night, was asked how long he thinks it would be before rival network CNN created a show for Weiner. "Well, you know, I've got a nine o'clock...

    What was the final event that sprang upon Anthony Weiner his Epiphany: his days were over as a US House of Representatives E-flasher of unsuspecting American girls? When did the fog of surrealism finally clear from his twisted, addle pated, twisted--did I once already say, “twisted”? True that, ‘twas twice twisted-- brain? ...

    Anthony Weiner stood alone as he closed the book on his scandal-stained political career -- but he walked off into the sunset with his humiliated wife yesterday. Less than three hours after the disgraced Dem was forced to resign from the House, he was seen with his pregnant wife, Huma Abedin, in the aisles of the King Kullen supermarket in Manorville, LI, as if the sexting scandal never happened.

    “People wonder what took Anthony Weiner so long to decide to resign. What was holding him up? I suspect we have all been systematically handled and schmoozed by the Democrat P.R. machine, folks. His resignation press conference, for which he was unapologetically very late, just underscored his hubris and contempt…...” Since the Left long benefited from Weiner’s attack-dog services, this nasty little cuss was not about to let them kick him out of the House just because he crapped on Hillary’s precious carpet. And the Clinton’s knew Weiner would bite the hand that fed him; that’s the nature of this...

    Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin made an appearance on Judge Andrew Napolitano’s Freedom Watch to discuss the hoopla surrounding her emails (In a nutshell: Palin rightly points out that the entire situation was wildly dumb. In so many words.) She also took a moment to comment on Anthony Weiner’s scandal. Judge Napolitano asked Palin whether she thought Weiner’s constituents were “entitled to have a pervert representing them in Congress” if that is what they so choose. Palin said that people are indeed entitled to have “someone like Anthony Weiner” represent them, but that she has faith in the people of...

    One of the women who had an online relationship with Congressman Anthony Weiner says she doesn't regret it. Traci Nobles, a cheerleading coach for a Christian organization in Athens, Ga., tells NBC's "Today" show she was flattered when Weiner befriended her on the Internet. Besides exchanging sexually-explicit emails, she says they traded music and talked about life in general. Asked if she's embarrassed, Nobles says, "It is what it is. ... There's nothing I could do about it at this point." But she says she doesn't regret anything.
