Source: Huma/Weiner Split Was “More for Optics for Hillary Campaign”

Source: Huma/Weiner Split Was “More for Optics for Hillary Campaign”

They’re ‘working hard’ on their marriage

Long-time Hillary Clinton aide, Huma Abedin, is reportedly ‘working hard’ on her marriage with disgraced Congressman, Anthony Weiner.

Weiner has been busted repeatedly over the years for sexting with young girls. After “completing outpatient therapy for sex addiction last fall, Weiner has been continuing treatment in New York City” where the couple lives.

According to a source close to the Clinton camp, the latest Abedin/Weiner split was “more for optics for the campaign and [under] pressure from Hillary’s camp.” Weiner’s extra-curricular activities surfaced yet again last August, during the home-stretch of Hillary’s presidential campaign.

The New York Post reports:

After years of public humiliation by her sext-a-holic husband, Anthony Weiner, 40-year-old Abedin finally separated from the former congressman in August, one day after The Post reported that he had sent yet another explicit photo to a woman — this one showing his toddler son asleep beside him.

But sources tell The Post that Hillary Clinton’s righthand woman is now giving the marriage another try.

“Huma has been working hard on her relationship with Anthony,” said a source close to the Abedin family. “He has been spending 80 to 90 percent of his time at the [Irving Place apartment] they share . . . If there is a disagreement, he goes to his mother’s apartment in Brooklyn.

“Both [his and her] families are hoping they will reconcile.”

Another source, who worked closely with Bill and Hillary Clinton for several years, corroborates this, saying the breakup was “more for optics for the campaign and [under] pressure from Hillary’s camp.”

Weiner’s penchant for sexting youngsters left in the couple’s life uncomfortable, including the parents of their son’s classmates. The Weiner’s entered an agreement with the school that Anthony would not pick up or drop off their son.

Despite all of this, the family friend said, the couple is still in love. They blame “the pressures of the campaign and presidential race . . . and him drifting off into obscurity” for Weiner’s most recent relapse, the friend added.

The friend said that since completing outpatient therapy for sex addiction last fall, Weiner has been continuing treatment in New York City.

“A lot of [their] friends believe this is an illness, that he is sick,” said the friend. But “Huma takes it into consideration that there’s been no affair, or physical contact that anybody is aware of. He never met [the women].”

As for Huma, friends and associates describe her as loving the celebrity life, and willing to do whatever’s required to maintain it.

If one thing’s certain, it’s that Abedin — much like her mentor, Clinton — is resilient.

“Oh, my gosh, this is not a person who feels sorry for herself,” the former aide said.

“In the same ways Huma brought Anthony back for the [2013] mayoral race, she’s willing to emerge and see how the spotlight is ­going to treat her,” the friend said.

“She is favorably received everywhere. She has done a lot of favors for a lot of people over the years. She was the gatekeeper, and she opened that gate a lot more than she closed it.”

While it’s easy to joke about their circumstance a few things are clear: Anthony is quite sick, and I mean that in the most literal terms. That he’s finally taking steps to get help is a positive. And it makes the internet a tad bit safer for young girls everywhere. Lastly, they have a child together. It’s always tragic when a family falls apart. That they’re reportedly seeking help and working it out ought to be lauded rather than mocked.

Seriously? This is wash rinse repeat for people of power. Bill Clinton has a sexual sickness but Hillary stood by him as she destroyed his accusers. So for Hillary it was all about latching on to Bill’s meteor and holding on until she got her own power. So what is is for Huma?
She has no respect for herself?
She doesn’t care what he does unless it affects her political career? She is thinking somehow he will come in handy in the future?
She is using him to look like she is a heterosexual female to dispel the rumors of her and Hillary having sexual relations?
She likes to be treated like dirt because she is powerful, kind of a weird release of the tension from power, “look at me I really don’t have all the control every one thinks”?

This whole thing becomes very clear if you understand just one thing. Hillary is gay. Huma is waaaaayyyyyy too close to Hillary. Seriously. Bill is a sex pest and so is Anthony. The marriage to these men is a complete sham. The purpose is for “optics”, and for the advancement of their political careers. I laugh every time I see this come up with either Anthony or Bill … those women will NEVER leave these men. They are the perfect cover for them, and most importantly will never really want to have sex with them, unless of course it advances their careers by having a child.

Are we supposed to forget about Wiener’s laptop?

Huma would have left Anthony far behind if her boss Hillary was in the White house right now.

Anthony has made noises about spilling lots of nasty beans to cut a deal for himself so he can avoid prison. If Huma reconciles with him (that is, does not get a divorce), then he cannot testify against her. She’s just protecting herself from the risk of prosecution, no matter how unpleasant the means.

Whether he will provide evidence and testify against other non-Huma persons is an interesting question. Does reconciliation with Huma include his refusal to betray Hillary? If he doesn’t give up somebody (preferably somebody important), then he might not be able to stay out of prison himself. I can’t see him sacrificing himself for Hillary or anyone else. Maybe Huma herself doesn’t care enough about protecting Hillary any more, considering how Hillary dropped her so quickly and completely when Anthony’s computer files came to light.

You can’t rehabilitate sexual perverts. Shame on you

To some extent, I guess this story is illustrative of Democratic values, and clearly Anthony Weiner follows in the footsteps of people like Bill Clinton, John Edwards, Ted Kennedy, etc who supported left wing positions on women’s issues and used that as cover for their own lack of personal responsibility.

Still, I don’t think this is a political story at this point, it’s just about one man who is self destructing and ruining his career and his family and just because it happens to be a Democrat doesn’t mean that I’m going to feel good about it.

They’re ‘working hard’ on their marriage

Good for them. Strive.

    Good for us, too. Divorce (e.g. abortion) is all too easy a choice that denies human growth through reconciliation

PUL-LEEZE..She is getting back together with him to shut him up…He knows more about the e-mails that she stored on their computers, and is threatening to spill the beans…. I don’t believe for one split second, that she is doing this for any other reason…

Huma is fighting to keep her cover alive and active. She is an agent of the radical Muslim “Brotherhood” group that her family has been part of for many years. She is in a position of power and privilege and is close to the political power brokers in the United States and wants to keep that position intact. If Hillary had won the election to the presidency, Huma would have been a mole with access to all the state intelligence her position would have afforded. I shudder to think of how that would have affected our national security. We dodged a bullet for the present time.

It would appear that Huma got her training from hillary. The modus operandi is exactly the same. Husbands is a scum bag who goes after underage girls and sends photos of his junk to people on line. Does that sound familiar?

Can’t blame Huma. What’s not to love about a purveyor of child porn?

This story is not about marital reconciliation. It is about marital privilege.

I think I will input a bit here.

I cannot forget that there are children involved here. Weiner and Abedin are parents. I have obvious issues with Weiner’s behaviour. As for Abedin, I have to separate her political life from her “human being” life. While she may be a reptilian political operative, I know nothing about her as a human being and less abou her as a parent.

The Democrats have proven themselves to be excrable in their attacks on children of their political opponents, but I do not want to be them.

I think that is Weiner and Abedin are working on keeping their marriage intact, and to continue to raise their children, then I believe we should allow them the space to do it. They have huge problems to deal with…including Weiner’s legal problems…and I do not think we need to pile on the pressure.

So, my suggestion is that we leave them alone, wish them luck in keeping their family intact and say a prayer for them.

But that’s just me.
