Huma Mahmood Abedin….etc

November 4, 2016

I believe in the adage ” Birds of a feather, flock together “, so I thought that knowing more about Huma Mahmood Abedin of Kalamazoo, Michigan, and Jiddah, Saudi Arabia would give me a better handle on “Crooked Hillary “.  Abedin is a Moslem of Indian-Pakistani descent and Vice Chair of Hillary’s campaign as well as being her number three aide when Hillary served as Secretary of State.  She started her work for Hillary as a White House intern during the Clinton administration.  She also works for the Clinton Foundation. She speaks fluent Urdu and Arabic and is an acknowledged expert on the Middle East having followed her growing up years at Jiddah with an educational focus on Journalism and Political Science at British and USA schools. Her acknowledged role model is TV journalist, Christine Amanpour.

But who is she ?  I got an insight by watching the Showtime documentary on Anthony Weiner. She impressed me as a soft, loving, supportive wife and mother, standing helpless and knowing better with eyes downcast and sad, while her husband, Anthony Weiner,  self- destructed and brought shame on her little family.  What I didn’t see was a bag woman for Hillary  projecting a hardened  edge in the vein of a Megan Kelly.  She is widely acknowledged as a person of enormous intellect and it is obvious Hillary sees her as a loyal friend and important asset, especially when it comes to deciphering middle east politics.

Other final thoughts….  It is being said that Comey was in a no- win situation, so he protected his ass. My contention is that he  should have looked beyond the impact on the FBI and James Comey. You and I have skin in the game and it is widely acknowledged that his announcement of further investigatory involvement is benefiting Donald Trump and will be pointed to as a major contributing factor if Hillary should lose. He should have kept his mouth shut and protected the FBI and his reputation by being able to point to an exhaustive effort while the election was playing out.  Nixon won in a landslide but was brought down by the facts that emerged post-election.  That is a better scenario than influencing the election.  And, what if she is innocent ???

I am a self- professed student of World War II and all the mistakes that led up to it including the self -deception of the German Industrialist Class that they could control…you know who….after the election.

I am not going to use the N word ( N-zi ). I am going to substitute the word “demagogue” as in Huey Long, Joe McCarthy, Benito Mussolini and Hitler. The essential cultivating ingredient for the growth of demagoguery is the  willingness of the population to gamble everything for change.  In my opinion, thanks to an obstructionist Congress which refuses to reform itself or  recognize that 1% of the population controls 90% of our wealth, we have created a core group which sees the candidacy of Donald Trump as our sole and last possibility for change. They are willing to overlook the veiled seriousness of comments like I could shoot someone in the middle of Fifth Avenue and still be elected.  They are encouraging the country to follow Donald and jump into the abyss because they see no alternative to haves versus have-nots

I am afraid to think of the aftermath.

I realize this has nothing to do with investing….except that 401ks abhor uncertainty.
