Just wanted to point out that the first part of the Mackstradamus prediction came true even sooner than I expected.

Link

Having read FE's original links to the organizations that were ignoring this or calling it a right wing attack it should be interesting to return to those links when I have time.

Edited to add the text from Huffpo with color changes indicating the most amusing bits in light of recent developments.

The Last Word on Weinergate (Hopefully)

Posted: 06/ 5/11 08:31 PM ET

The only people who matter in Weinergate -- New York voters -- have spoken. Their verdict?

So what?

An informal poll on Weinergate published Saturday in The Daily Beast asked 100 New Yorkers -- including some in Rep. Weiner's district -- what they thought of it. The poll found most of the people asked said they didn't care about it one way or another, haven't changed their opinion of Weiner, would vote for him again, don't think he sent the picture, and that it isn't of him.

The bottom line? Anthony Weiner (D-NY) may have botched the media strategy and embarrassed himself hugely; but he's still in Congress, he isn't going anyplace and, assuming he's the same guy he was before this attempt was made on his political life, he'll live to fight another day.

And when the time comes, I'm guessing the people who attacked him, and the people behind it, can expect something in return. After all; Anthony Weiner is from Brooklyn.

At this point, the details of this manufactured scandal, or Rep. Weiner's missteps handling it, don't really need much repeating. We all know somebody hacked into his Twitter account and sent a link to a picture of some guy's underpants to a Seattle student; that Andrew Breitbart put it on his web site, took it right down, and proceeded to flog the story; and that the media treated this sliming like the assassination of Lincoln -- probably because it was timed for a Memorial Day weekend, when there was nothing else to report. People paying attention -- and who could look away -- know that the more Weiner talked about it, the worse it got for him.

What's gone largely unremarked is that the tactics used against Rep. Weiner are the ones at the top of the Right Wing toolkit. At a minimum, the Right Wing displays a fondness for tactics, and a willingness to stoop, that I think have no place in the public sphere.

Politics may not be beanbag, and America's witnessed nasty politics since the election of 1800; but to the extent there a direct line between the infamous Willie Horton ad for Bush the Elder in 1988 and the attack on Rep. Weiner, that line has been going downhill at 45 degrees.

How much lower it can go is beyond me, but I have confidence in the Right Wing; they'll find a way. After all, they believe the ends justify the means, even though in politics, there are no ends -- only means. And if a politician uses means like the ones thrown at Rep. Weiner, people willing to vote for him or her need to ask; if this is what they're made of, what'll they do to the country?

The Right Wing seems addicted to conducting business at gunpoint, with the safety off and the barrel in their target's ear -- most recently, in the country's ear. Sure, all politics and much of business is conducted at gunpoint. Extortion and blackmail are all part of it. And every negotiation has an "or" in it.

But usually, people know the guns are there; they don't need to be waved about. And people who don't care how they get somebody, and don't care how much collateral damage they cause doing it, are like terrorists willing to blow up a loaded airliner to kill one man.

But since the Right Wing we've come to know is full of fronts for the John Birch Society -- the two main figures behind it are Richard Mellon Scaife and the Koch brothers, all sons of JBS founders -- maybe we shouldn't be surprised.

After all, in the 1970s the JBS, through its future chairman, Dr. Larry McDonald, promoted and profited from the laetrile fraud. Treating patients with laetrile was murder and you can't tell me McDonald, an internist, didn't know it.

Laetrile, for those of you who don't know, was pushed as a miracle cure for cancer. But it was made from apricot pits and full of cyanide. Cyanide attacks the central nervous system. So people "treated" with laetrile felt better because they didn't feel the cancer. Then they died. And then the people behind it all said they could have saved their victims, if only they'd come to them earlier.

William F. Buckley, Jr. and his allies marginalized the JBS in the 1960s. But unlike its victims, it didn't die. Fifty years later, the sons of people willing to finance their politics with murder are a huge influence on the Republican Party.

So are we amazed to find their operatives are perfectly willing to make penis jokes if they think it'll help them smear their enemies? Out an undercover CIA agent to punish her husband? Or risk provoking a global depression by defaulting on the national debt to get their way?

The question is more like what have they been doing we don't know about yet.

Between Weiner and Christopher Lee's resignation last month, this should be a lesson for politicians: 

If you'll be ashamed of the action in real life, don't put it on the Internet.

ABC is roasting weiner...
 
Guess calling out the integrity of a reporter and blaming the entire thing on the "media" (aka Breitbart) while lashing out and lying to this degree is according to many liberals "not wrong".
 
Weiner even said he wasn't resigning because "he did nothing wrong or unethical"...
 
 
The Huffpo article that blamed Breitbart has an update now... Quite telling about the "journOlist" who wrote it.
 
Here is where Breitbart "hacked" weiners press conference... Maybe this will force these arrogant "public servants" to actually show up on time instead of making everyone wait.
 
 
Breitbart calls out the media in the room in a way that is unreal. And the best part is they way the media (no bias of course) tries to make this out as a "non story". It is headlines all over the country today...
 
Blame the messenger typical liberal media tactic.
 
 
 
Weiner proves he is a liar. (and only takes credit for 6 "relationships"...).  
 
 
Only 6... yeah right. Guess we are supposed to "trust" the liar now. So far in the press we have read that weiner had phone sex with one of these people FROM HIS OFFICE at congress, as she called him back on that line and got his secretary at congress! So someone is lying...
 
There are minors involved...
 
I wonder if weiner will be affected by his bill about internet sex predators of children?
 
Oh that's right, rules are for OTHERS, not the politicians that write them. That is why Obamacare doesn't apply to the politicians that signed it into law.

Does the fact that this congressman having power "of the purse" to spend federal money as he pleases even if he is being blackmailed not a concern for you?
 
Why wouldn't that question be front and center in this story, as it is most pertinent? Oh yeah... democrat.

Possibly because the press conference was in the early evening yesterday, and the admission of guilt was the news story. 

How often do you see opinionated questions on the front page of newspapers?

No, here is a bigger picture for you.  Brooklyn is dominated by Israelis and Russians.  Wiener is from Brooklyn.  His campaign money is coming directly from the Kremlin and Tel Aviv.  It is all part of the secret agenda by the Obama administration for social engineering/Communism/Socialism.     I have to take my tin foil hat off now because Major League Baseball is messing with my reception with ancient Mayan witch doctors.

It is comforting to see that all of our country's problems have been resolved and we have absolutely nothing more important to talk about than someone posting pictures on twitter.

Ahh, it is my "opinion" that he holds the power of the purse, and only my "opinion" that with his blatant womanizing "could" have set him up for blackmail...
 
Guess, you missed the press conference, or more likely didn't listen to what Breitbart said when he said he opened himself up FOR BLACKMAIL!...
 
It is the major part of this story... Unless you ignore it... because...
 
 
 
democrat.
 
Come on whale, if you want to be a journalist, you have to get over this blatant bias.
 
That is the entire problem with a congressman doing stuff like this, they can be manipulated into corruption based on their indiscretions. To not see that as a major part of this story is troubling.

Funny enough, from looking at the front-pages from New York today, the Hamodia didn't cover the Weiner thing. 

You'd figure he being in New York and being Jewish would put him front and center.

You originally proposed that the linked blog post from American Thinker be placed on the front page of newspapers covering this scandal. 

I simply asked how many blog posts you see on the front page of newspapers. 

Which has yet to be answered.

How exactly do you blackmail someone by threatening to expose them for something that is now public knowledge?
