Ordered Liberty

Well, well, well, the Huma Abedin controversy has finally hit the legacy media. Okay, okay — it’s not the Huma Abedin controversy, but it’s one Obama’s court stenographers apparently feel comfortable talking about.

It seems Ms. Abedin, accurately described by the New York Times as Hillary Rodham Clinton’s  ”longtime aide and confidante,” spent her last months at the State Department not really at the State Department. Despite maintaining her title as Secretary of State Clinton’s deputy chief of staff, she was permitted, upon returning to government service from maternity leave in mid-2012, to remain at home in New York with her newborn child and her husband, the disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner — he of the notorious Weiner all aTwitter photos. While the State Department was paying her $135,000 as a “special government employee,” Abedin was also permitted to moonlight as a “strategic consultant” for Teneo, a firm founded by Doug Band, a former adviser to President Bill Clinton. (Teneo, the Times informs us, advises such firms as MF Global, the brokerage firm whose investors were broken by Jon Corzine — the former New Jersey governor and Obama campaign bundler.) In addition, Abedin found time in her busy “special government employee”  schedule to do consultant work for the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation.

With that familiar Clinton flare, Abedin did not disclose her consultant income on government financial disclosure forms. According to the State Department, you see, her new “part-time” position as “special government employee” meant the usual disclosure requirements did not apply to her … notwithstanding that, the Atlantic Wire reports, Abedin continued to be referred to in official documents as deputy chief of staff to the United States secretary of state. The arrangement finally came to an end in March when Ms. Abedin officially left the State Department to head up Mrs. Clinton’s six-person “transition office” — i.e., the transition from secretary of state to what the tongue-in-cheeky Atlantic calls Mrs. Clinton’s “version of private life.”

Apparently not to the great delight of the Clintons, Weiner, as part of his effort to come back from his virtual sex scandal and maybe make a run for New York City mayor, decided to release the couple’s 2012 tax returns. They show that these dedicated public servants made just shy of a half-million dollars last year. Turns out Weiner’s been “consulting” too, but the couple is not saying how much of the haul comes from Abedin’s extracurricular activities while she was still on the government payroll.

Islam allows almost any behavior in order to subvert a non-Muslim. Huma was the lure in a honeypot trap for the Hilda Beast from the beginning. The Mullahs are laughing their a$$es off.

The relationship between Hillary and Huma would certainly make for an interesting investigation from one of the House committees. Huma's known personal connections to high ranking members of the muslim brotherhood might make for some difficult question and answer sessions on Huma's part. And Hillary would need to address any 'problems' that might crop up. As for their personal interactions I couldn't care less - Huma might be key to stopping Hillary but the personal angle wouldn't be helpful.

Now is the time to nip any thoughts she has of running in 2016. Let the dem's run 'Ole Joe'. That would be funny!

I hope that this is the beginning of a massive effort to reveal the truth about the Muslim Brotherhood operations in the U.S.A.. At present, our administration is protecting them and giving them preferential treatment while smearing patriots. That's quite an accomplishment for Muslims worldwide; actually being successful in joining with the left to undermine and "fundamentally change" the U.S.A.

Just happened on a link to the White House Vistor's log, obtained by US News and World Report. http://www.usnews.com/whitehouse/visitors

I performed a search on last name "Abedin". The results are below. Saleha Abedin is listed as a visitor to POTUS. I found that interesting.

All these people do is network with each other in order to maintain some sort of BS job. NGO's, Non Profits, and this wide array of groups serve the function of paying the bills for these statists when they get shuffled out of government. If we cannot defund the government, lets defund the shadow government.

So, now, is the Occupy Wallstreet Movement aware of this ungodly elitist privilege? Do they still exist? Or did all those lib arts losers finally get jobs?

I don't think Huma will be happy with being a Mayor's wife. She wants the White House. And you know if Hillary runs in 2016, Huma will be right at her side. Hopefully by then someone will have the guts to call her out on her Muslim Brotherhood ties.
