VP Biden’s daughter on film with cocaine. ABC, CBS, and NBC offer no coverage. When “Biden” and “Cocaine” are searched on the NBC site it gives you a picture of Bristol Palin….

Posted by iusbvision on March 31, 2009

For those of you on the far left, including some journalism professors at IU, who say “what leftist media bias” here is another one that there is no way that you can dismiss, just like the story about how Obama’s chief of staff got $320,000 from Freddie Mac and ABC, CBS and NBC thought you didn’t need to know and offered no coverage at all – LINK.

Everyone knows how the media went insane reporting UNTRUE and hurtful rumors that Sarah Palin’s son Trig, was not hers and was birthed in secret by the governor’s daughter Bristol. Then when Bristol Palin did get pregnant with her long time boyfriend Levi Johnson the elite media went insane on reporting every available and in some cases invented details about Bristol Palin’s web site. Of course reporting about Michelle Obama’s radical comments and activist past ceased when Obama said to lay off the families; of course that only counts for Democrats as the elite media continued to savage Bristol Palin in an obvious attempt to cause so much pain in her family to push Governor Palin to step down. The NY Times even published four page one stories on Bristol Palin’s sex life on the same day.

In January the Anchorage Daily News, who is often unfair to Governor Palin, was still “investigating” weather Trig was “really Bristol’s baby” – LINK.

Let us also not forget that NBC suspended an anchor for making a crack about Chelsea Clinton.

While all this was happening there was almost no elite media coverage of the legal and ethical problems of Joe Biden’s son Hunter, who is accused in two lawsuits of hedge funds fraud. We reported it way back on September 2nd (LINK) and Fox News covered the story in February (LINK).

The double standard is obvious and in our view deliberate. Now the NY Post is reporting that there is a film showing Ashley Biden doing cocaine. They are also reporting that Ashley Biden has a record of being a “party girl” and was arrested for marijuana in 1999. Funny how we are just finding out about that arrest now instead of during the campaign.

Radar Online first reported the story on March 28:

An explosive video being shopped to media outlets has plunged the White House and Vice President Joe Biden into a cocaine scandal, has learned exclusively.

The video shows a woman, who is represented by the seller and his attorneys to be Biden’s daughter Ashley, snorting several lines of cocaine.

The tape has been viewed by a freelance reporter who confirms the woman looks identical to Ashley Biden.

Tom Dunlap, an attorney for Dunlap, Grubb and Weaver in Washington D.C. is representing the seller of the tape in brokering a deal and several news organizations have seen the footage.

In addition to, representatives for the New York Post, a large British newspaper and the National Enquirer have all viewed the tape.

The woman on the tape clearly resembles Ashley Biden, 27, who is a social worker employed with the Delaware Department of Children, Youth and Families. She is also a board member of the Delaware YWCA organization.

The tape was shot this year.

Radar Online updated the story saying that the tape was made by one of the people supplying her with the cocaine – LINK.  

NY Post:

A “friend” of Vice President Joseph Biden’s daughter, Ashley, is attempting to hawk a videotape that he claims shows her snorting cocaine at a house party this month in Delaware.

The anonymous male acquaintance of Ashley took the video, said Thomas Dunlap, a lawyer representing the seller.

…The lawyers declined to name the person who shot the video, but said he knew Ashley well and had attended other parties with her at which there were illegal drugs.

The New York Post updated the story (LINK) reporting:

A decade before a friend came forward trying to sell a video that he claimed showed her snorting cocaine, Vice President Joseph Biden’s daughter was busted for pot possession.

ashley_bidenAshley Biden “was a hot freshman that every guy wanted to be with,” said Nat Berman, a Tulane University classmate, who said he bailed Ashley out of jail after her 1999 marijuana arrest in New Orleans, for which no conviction was recorded.

“She was very attractive.

“Everybody at Tulane knew that she was a party girl,” Berman said. “She wore some pretty short shorts — a lot.”

Berman, 30, wrote on his blog,, after Joseph Biden’s election as vice president last November about Ashley’s partying.

Berman told The Post that Ashley — currently a social worker at a Delaware child-welfare agency — called him in September 1999 to say she was “on her way over” to his off-campus home “to hang out.”

An hour or so later, after she didn’t show up, Berman said he received a call from Ashley, who “said she was in jail.”

“She was freaking out. She was like, ‘I’m in this cell,’ ” Berman recalled. “She was not happy.”

Berman said he paid a bail bondsman “between $200 and $400” to bail Ashley out, and then drove her home.


Well well well elite media… what a story that the elite media decided that you didn’t need to know and still thinks that you don’t need to know because after this story being out for three days, ABC, CBS, and NBC have no coverage of this story. The links go to screen shots of searches of their news sites, but it gets better, when you search for this story on NBC news’ web site it brings up a picture of Bristol Palin.

For the record, we take no pleasure in the outing of Ashley Biden’s issues. She is a children’s social worker and is doing cocaine, so this woman needs help and she needs it now and until she gets over this problem and acts more responsible, around children is exactly where Ashley Biden does not belong. The elite media’s gross double standard and hateful actions against Governor Palin’s family forces us to report this story.

Another Obama nominee with tax problems…

Posted by iusbvision on March 31, 2009

Here we go again. Obama’s new nominee for Health & Human Services director is paying over $7,000 in back taxes that were owed. She is former governor Kathleen Sebelius. Of course, when your a Democrat you don’t have to pay all of the penalties, just as Tim Geithner.

Government report shows where the machine guns the Mexican drug cartels use are coming from (and it’s not the USA) – UPDATE: Fox News reports 83% of drug cartel guns could not be traced to U.S.

Posted by iusbvision on March 31, 2009

UPDATE – FNC investigated this story and using ATF Firearm traces discovered that 83% of siezed guns could not be traced to American gun stores. – LINK 

OUR TAKE – We told ya HERE when the story first appeared that it was BS.

*******Original Story*******

CNN on Lou Dobbs at 7pm has told the truth about this issue, but CNN at other times shows you pictures of machine guns and tells you that they are being bought at gun shows and gun stores across the USA.

It’s a lie, machine guns are not sold by gun stores and gun shows and haven’t been for decades. The only way to purchase one is from a Class 3 firearms dealer and there are very few of those and each transaction is strictly regulated by the ATF.

We previously covered this story HERE. But some great work by the JustMyTruth blog has discovered a government report that tells us exactly where the machine guns are coming from.

Here is the report –

In short the report makes it clear that arms are coming from Colombian Communist Rebels known as FARC. FARC is funded by Hugo Chavez. Hmmm no wonder the left wants to blame American gun owners and not the guy that the far left so often defends. Here is an excerpt:


Mexico’s drug trafficking and alien smuggling networks have expanded their criminal activities aimed at the United States by capitalizing on the explosive growth of transborder commerce under NAFTA and the attendant growth in human and merchandise traffic between Mexico and the United States. The growth in trans-border commerce, as manifested in soaring levels of overland passenger and commercial vehicle traffic, has provided an ever-expanding “haystack” in which the “needles” of illicit narcotics and illegal aliens can be more easily concealed.

During the late 1990s, the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) clandestine arms smuggling and drug trafficking established a partnership with the Tijuana-based Arellano Felix Organization (AFO).

Statements by high-ranking Mexican officials prior to and following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks indicate that one or more Islamic extremist organizations has sought to establish a presence in Mexico.

The report  goes into much more detail about arms smuggling to the Mexican drug cartels by FARC.

Here is CNN on Lou Dobbs getting it right:

And here is NRA VP Wayne LaPierre blasting CNN for running these faked stories which CNN is still running:

Andrew Klavan: Take the Limbaugh Challenge!

Posted by iusbvision on March 31, 2009

LA Times Blog:

If you are reading this newspaper, the likelihood is that you agree with the Obama administration’s recent attacks on conservative radio talker Rush Limbaugh. That’s the likelihood; here’s the certainty: You’ve never listened to Rush Limbaugh.

Oh no, you haven’t. Whenever I interrupt a liberal’s anti-Limbaugh rant to point out that the ranter has never actually listened to the man, he always says the same thing: “I’ve heard him!”

On further questioning, it always turns out that by “heard him,” he means he’s heard the selected excerpts spoon-fed him by the distortion-mongers of the mainstream media. These excerpts are specifically designed to accomplish one thing: to make sure you never actually listen to Limbaugh’s show, never actually give him a fair chance to speak his piece to you directly.

By lifting some typically Rushian piece of outrageous hilarity completely out of context, the distortion gang knows full well it can get you to widen your eyes and open your mouth in the universal sign of Liberal Outrage. Your scrawny chest swelling with a warm sense of completely unearned righteousness, you will turn to your second spouse and say, “I’m not a liberal, I’m a moderate, and I’m tolerant of a wide range of differing views — but this goes too far!”

There is more untruthfulness in that statement than in a speech by President Obama. Even the commas are self-deceiving. You’re not a moderate or you wouldn’t be reading this newspaper. You’re not tolerant of a wide range of views; you are tolerant of a narrow spectrum of variations on your views. And, whatever you claim, you still haven’t listened to Rush Limbaugh.

Which leads to a question: Why not? I mean, come on, the guy’s one of the figures of the age. Aren’t you even curious? I listen to all your guys: NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, The Times, the New York Times, the New Yorker — I check out the whole left-wing hallelujah chorus. Why are you afraid to spend a couple of hours listening to Limbaugh’s show and seriously considering if and why you disagree with him?

Let me guess at your answer. You don’t need to listen to him. You’ve heard enough to know he’s a) racist, b) hateful, c) stupid, d) merely an outrageous entertainer not to be taken seriously or e) all of the above.

Now let me tell you the real answer: You’re a lowdown, yellow-bellied, lily-livered intellectual coward. You’re terrified of finding out he makes more sense than you do.

I listen to Limbaugh every chance I get, and I have never heard the man utter a single racist, hateful or stupid word. Do I always agree with him? Of course not. I’m a conservative; I think for myself. But Limbaugh, by turns insightful, satiric, raucously funny and wise, is one of the best voices talking about first principles and policy in the country today.

Therefore, I am throwing down my gauntlet at your quivering liberal feet. I hereby issue my challenge — the Limbaugh Challenge: Listen to the show. Not for five minutes but for several hours: an hour a day for several days. Consider what he has to say — the real policy material under the jokes and teasing bluster. Do what your intellectual keepers do not want you to do and keep an open mind. Ask yourself: What’s he getting at? Why does he say the things he says? Why do so many people of goodwill — like that nice Mr. Klavan — agree with him?

The mainstream media (a.k.a. the Matrix) don’t want you to listen to Limbaugh because they’re afraid he’ll wake you up and set you free of their worldview. You don’t want to listen to him because you’re afraid of the same thing.

Don’t believe me? Well, then, gird your loins. Gather your courage. Accept the Limbaugh Challenge. See what happens.

I dare you.

Dr. Adams on how to cure your kid of STD (Socialist Teaching Disorder)

Posted by iusbvision on March 31, 2009

As a matter of policy, we rarely reprint an entire article and try to stick to excerpts, but in this case the educational value of this article is so high and so valuable to students and parents that we are bringing it to you. Be sure to visit Dr. Adams page – LINK.

Dr. Mike Adams
Monday, March 30, 2009

Dear Steve:

Thanks for writing me with your concerns about your daughter’s recent visit home from college. I don’t have a daughter but I can understand the concern you have after seeing such dramatic changes in her after just six months at a public university. After all, you didn’t save money for eighteen long years in order to pay someone to teach her to despise the values you taught for, well, eighteen long years.

First of all, I want you to understand that many of the crazy ideas you hear your daughter espousing are commonplace on college campuses. Nonetheless, it must have been shocking for you to hear that she supported Barack Obama in the last election principally because of his ideas about “the redistribution of wealth.” I know you were also disappointed to hear of her sudden opposition to the War on Terror and her sudden embrace of the United Nations. Most of all, I know you are disappointed that she has stopped going to church altogether.

Now that your daughter is not going to church it will be easier to get her to accept other policies based on economic and cultural Marxism. Socialist professors like the fact that average church attendance drops dramatically after just one year of college. God and socialism are simply incompatible. One cannot worship both Jesus Christ and Karl Marx.

But there is good news, Steve. I think I can implement a program that will cure your daughter’s Socialist Teaching Disorder (STD) in just a few short days. In case you were wondering, I define STD as the sudden infatuation with socialism brought on by exposure to pro-socialist ideas without a corresponding exposure to anti-socialist ideas. Although not recognized by the APA, this emotional disorder is running rampant at American universities.

The solution to your daughter’s STD is to be found in your decision to award her a sum of $4000 if she returns from her freshman year with a 3.5 GPA or above. Previously, you explained to me that you decided to do this for two reasons: 1) Your daughter had earned a $4000 scholarship, which meant you had the extra money, and 2) Your only son had gone to college five years ago and flunked out after one year.

Now that your daughter has maintained a 3.6 GPA (so far) you are happy. But you are unhappy that you are about to reward her newfound love of socialism when you had only intended to reward her studiousness. I have a solution that involves three steps. If you follow these steps (in order) we’ll have this little problem cured in no time:

1. When your daughter returns from college in early May (presumably with a GPA over 3.5) I want you to tell her that you lied. Put simply, when she asks about her $4000 just tell her that you never really had any intention of delivering on your promises.

This revelation will, no doubt, cause significant consternation and outrage. But when she protests, simply point out that her choice for president, Barack Obama, also lied to her. Note that his lies about earmarks and line-by-line analysis of the budget will probably end up costing her more than $4000. She might say, “But you’re my father.” If she does, respond by saying “But I’m not your president.” If things get too uncomfortable, just tell her the $4000 promise was technically “last year’s business.”

2. When your daughter has cooled down somewhat from the realization that her father is a confessed liar I want you to strike again. Since your son, now 23, still lives at home it will be possible for you to implement step two in the presence of both children. This step will involve simply taking out your wallet and writing a $2000 check to your son.

This action will, no doubt, cause even more consternation and outrage for your daughter. She may well point out that her brother is unemployed. She may also point out that he has been in rehab twice and that he once punched you in the face while under the influence of drugs. But, when she protests, simply say that it was Barack Obama who taught you to reward failure.

She may well say “But that’s half of the money I was supposed to get.” If so, point out that it is Barack Obama who would like to take other people’s money – at least half, if not more – and use much of it to reward bad behavior. By this time, she will probably hate socialism and the lesson will have saved you a lot of money.

But, just in case the point is not yet made, there is a third step to my plan. And this is where I get actively involved.

3. I’m going to take your daughter and the remaining $2000 – in the form of one hundred $20 bills – to the “hood.” Specifically, I am going to take her to places where crack cocaine is sold here in Wilmington in the middle of the afternoon. This will include grocery stores and actual crack houses. Don’t worry about your daughter’s safety as I will be armed with a .357 magnum loaded with 145-grain silver tipped hollow point bullets. When I approach a crack head I will first ask whether he paid income taxes last year. If he says “no” I will hand him $20.

If your daughter asks me why I give money to people who don’t pay taxes I’ll remind her that this is what President Obama does. Then I’ll ask her if she still believes in “spreading the wealth” without regard to individual merit.

By the end of the afternoon, I can guarantee your daughter will be cured of her STD. Sorry if I sound overly optimistic, Steve. I got my optimism from the same place I got my love of capitalism. I learned it from Ronald Reagan, not Barack Obama.

Daniel Hannan on France and Germany warning the US that we are spending too much

Posted by iusbvision on March 31, 2009

Why do people blindly follow governments which are intent on bankrupting them?

To some extent it is because in a crisis people want to give the benefit of the doubt to the guy who looksas though he has the answers. Frenzied activity can create the illusion that you know what you are doing. That certainly that happened in Britain and that was the background for the bail-out and stimulus package. Unfortunately it takes a momentum of its own because the bail-outs and stimulus don’t work and the government’s response is not to say “we were wrong” because they cant then turn around and tell the taxpayers that it was all a waste so they have to carry on. They make it worse. There is a dreadful, grisly logic to the thing where bail-outs beget bail-outs, ‘So we spent a bunch of money, so that didn’t work so lets spend another bunch of money; even more that will really work’. And once we find out that it didn’t work it’s too late.
