Bristol Palin and John Ziegler Blast Keith Olbermann

Posted by iusbvision on December 3, 2010

This is great fun to listen to.

IUSB Vision Editor’s take: I am all for the counter attack, and indeed I am a master of it (no need of modesty today, but just ask some of those who took me on), BUT… fortunately Olberman’s ratings are so low and MSNBC is so small time and marginalized that he is not a threat to any Palin. It is probably best to ignore him as he has exiled himself into irrelevance. I say this because the Palin’s are such overwhelmingly huge stars when compared with anyone on MSNBC that even a masterful response serves to help MSNBC. There is an old saying about those who misbehave, “just make sure you spell my name properly”. I am not saying ignore attackers, but under the circumstances it is likely best to ignore this particular attacker.

More Sexist Attacks from Left: Lefty blogs start rumor that Palin has implants and elite media runs with it. Tennessee Democrat, “You have to lift their skirts to find out if they are women”

Posted by iusbvision on June 15, 2010

Via Michelle Malkin:

Tennessee State Democrat legislator Janis Baird Son­tany of Nashville to the roster of abusers. Here’s what she said about her GOP opponents at a Democrat Party breakfast over the weekend:

State Republican Chairman Chris Devaney today denounced as “petty and insulting” a Democratic legislator’s statement about her Republican women colleagues. “You have to lift their skirts to find out if they are women. You sure can’t find out by how they vote,” said Rep. Janis Baird Sontany, D-Nashville.

Says Michelle Malkin –

Skirt checks. Bra checks. Womb checks.

Before it was Palin is not qualified because she has little kids at home (so does B. Obama by the way), than it was a series of “Trig is not your baby”, than it was a series of “your not a real woman”, than it was “you support rape”, than it was you “hate pregnant teens”, now it is “you had a boob job”.

The fuss is over these two pictures –

Via NewsBusters and Michelle Malkin

The rumor started Tuesday on the liberal website Wonkette in a posting entitled, “Did Sarah Palin Buy Herself a Couple of Luxury Items?”

“We got a political news tip on our Facebook page from Wonkette operative ‘Laura,'” the piece began.

“And, having just now checked our tipster’s hunch with another woman (also, coincidentally, named ‘Laura’), we can report with confidence that at least two people with experience in having breasts say that Sarah Palin sure looks like she was trotting out some new work at the horse races on Sunday.”

Taking the bait was the Boston Herald Wednesday

Hey Sarah Palin, I can see your cleavage from my house!

Alaska’s former governor sported more Northern Exposure than usual at the Belmont Stakes race this weekend, sending the blogosphere into a tizzy, wondering whether Palin is exercising a woman’s right to (bigger) boobs.

The Toronto Sun also swallowed the hook:

Has Sarah Palin added to her assets?

Rumours are swirling on the Internet that the former U.S. vice president candidate and Alaska governor has gotten breast implants recently.

Numerous websites have of course followed suit.
The Huffington Post put on its front page, “PHOTOS: Did Sarah Palin Get Breast Implants?” This included a poll.

Fox TV in Boston actually asked people on the streets if they thought Palin had gotten implants. [Editor’s Note – to see the video of what Fox25 did just follow the NewsBusters link; it is truly disgraceful. Honestly if that reporter had come up to me and started enquiring about any politicians boobs I would have thrown my drink in her face. That reporter is demeaning the profession. When I learned journalistic ethics the questions asked are: Does the story really matter. Does the story do more harm than good. Is it relevant? Is it true, if so can we prove it?]

Of course JWF has the evidence to show that they are NOT fakeLINK

Michelle Malkin has a great post on what the left does to disqualify women as candidates:

The first stage of Conservative Female Abuse by the Left is infantilization. Right-wing women can’t possibly believe what they believe about the sanctity of life, self-defense, free markets, or foreign policy. They must be submissive little dolls of the White Male Hierarchy. Or, as a far Left (is there any other kind of Left in San Francisco?) San Francisco Chronicle columnist wrote of First Lady Laura Bush, they must be put in their place as  “docile doormats” with no brains of their own.

The second stage of CFA is sexualization. A conservative woman is not merely a sellout. She is an intellectual prostitute. Unable or unwilling to argue with them on the merits, detractors resort to mocking the physical appearance of their ideological opponents in skirts and denigrating them with vulgar epithets. MSNBC hosts insulted former GOP presidential candidate Fred Thompson’s accomplished wife and mother of two, Jeri Thompson, as working the stripper pole. Newspaper cartoonists Ted Rall, Pat Oliphant, and Jeff Danziger caricatured Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice as a mammy, thick-lipped parrot, and Bush “House Nigga” armed with “hair straightener.” New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd derided former GOP Florida secretary of state Katherine Harris for applying “her makeup with a trowel.”

True to form, Dowd was first out of the box to snicker at Gov. Palin’s beauty pageant past, ridicule her “beehive and sexy shoes,” and compare her path to the vice presidential nomination as a “hokey chick flick.” Joe Biden backhandedly praised her as “good looking.” And left-wing bloggers worked overtime on lurid photoshops of Palin as a bikini model and porn star. At the Democratic Underground, a highly trafficked liberal website raising money for Barack Obama, members held a contest to come up with nicknames and posters to slime GOP Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. [Editor’s Note – the names they came up with are not safe for work. One of the nicer ones was VPILTF (VP I’d like to F**K)].

The third stage of CFA is demonization. When the Left tires of hurling whore insults, it turns conservative women in the public eye into nefarious creatures. Bill Maher called Laura Bush “Hitler’s dog.” George Carlin attacked Barbara Bush as “the Silver douchebag.” A Huffington Post website member wrote of Nancy Reagan: “Like her evil husband, she has lived far too long. Here’s hoping the hag suffers for several weeks, then croaks in the tub.” Another added: “I feel no pity for the bitch who took delight in watching thousands die of a horrible disease and watching the poor having to eat out of dumpsters because of her husband’s political beliefs.” True to form, rumors of Palin being a crypto-Nazi surfaced on the Internet and the fringe media. And liberal critics used her gun-rights record to smear her as bloodthirsty.

The final stage of CFA is dehumanization. Conservative women aren’t real women according to the liberal feminist establishment’s definition. Remember when Gloria Steinem called Texas Republican Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison a “female impersonator?” Or when curdled NOW leader Patricia Ireland instructed Democrats to vote only for “authentic” female political candidates? Or when Al Gore’s fashion consultant Naomi Wolf described the foreign-policy analysis of Jeane Kirkpatrick as being “uninflected by the experiences of the female body?”

Echoing the bottom-feeders in the liberal blogosphere, mainstream journalists and Obama water-carriers now question Palin’s commitment to motherhood and even challenged her pre-natal care decisions in an effort to destroy her.

So lets take a walk down sexist memory lane shall we?

Venerable CBS Newsman Bernard Goldberg: The Media Was on a Historical Mission to Elect Obama and Stole the Election from Hillary

Posted by iusbvision on February 23, 2009

Remember the phrase “selected not elected” and how the left always applied that to President Bush? But we don’t hear that phrase any more do we? Perhaps it is because Hillary won the popular vote in the primary and may very well have won the nomination if not for the “super delegates” in the Democrat nomination process that can overturn the will of the people. The media also was piling on Hillary to “quit the race it was hopeless” when it fact it was not hopeless at all until the “super delegates” shut it all down.

Ironic that the party who always talks about Democracy and even bends/breaks the rule of law when its convenient to achieve it when it suits them has the process that is the least democratic.

The obligitory “Ashley Judd has no idea what she is talking about in regards to Palin” post…

Posted by iusbvision on February 5, 2009

This is why most actors should about making public political PR campaigns. The problem is that most every statement made in this ad is misleading or a direct falsehood. Here is the ad:

Governor Palin’s office put up a press release rebuking the ad . It was strong in rebuke but light on substance so I called Governor Palin’s press Secretary Bill McAllister and asked him to provide a link so we can look up the policies for predator control in Alaska on our own. This morning a new link appeared at the bottom of the press release (good job Bill).

Through that link I started reading, and reading, and reading and I found this report titled “Wolf Management in Alaska with an Historic Perspective Presentation to the Alaska Board of Game March 2002“. This report explains the history of wolf/predator control policy in Alaska almost step by step going back to the 1940’s.

You can read the report in full or I can just give you the “Cliff’s Notes” version; wolf control policy has been a subject of great political, scientific, and ethical study in Alaska for decades. After years of bipartisan efforts working with the scientific community as well as conservation experts, hunters, etc Alaska worked out a predator control policy that is limited and reasonably effective.  Much of the current law and scientific studies were completed before Palin was elected in previous administrations such as former Democrat Governor Tony Knowles. After reading this report no one could honestly say that Alaska’s predator control laws are unscientific.

UPDATE: Ed Morrissey at Hotair.com asks if Ashley Judd supports packs of wolves eating all the baby caribou. He also points out that the Anchorage Daily (who is often unfair to Palin) News has recently pointed out that Alaska’s predator control policy works and that previously the wolf population had gotten excessive resulting in significant losses in the caribou population.

How Media Bias Works: The John Ziegler Interview

Posted by iusbvision on January 10, 2009

Here is the treatment that documentary film maker John Ziegler received from MSNBC in his interview. Is this a professional interview or an attempt at a smear job?

If only I could be John Ziegler’s communications director. Ziegler handled himself pretty well in this outrageous interview, but there are a few things one can do and say to help combat these typical tactics of the elite media.

Lets deconstruct these interviews.

Round I:

In this interview MSNBC mischaracterizes Governor Palin’s recent press release. Palin was not criticizing Ziegler at all, she was criticizing media outlets for mischaracterizing what is in it we showed you HERE.

Look at how the MSNBC host compares what is obviously Ziegler’s comments about character assassination and draws a ridiculous analogy with real assassination to attack Ziegler. This rhetorical tactic is called demagoguery.

In the interview the MSNBC anchor says that “Palin is clearly unqualified” to be vice president. So let’s take a look at the record shall we?

IUSB Vision went deep into the public records to get the record of Sarah Palin as mayor and governor. We also talked about what the elite media said about far less experienced candidates for VP such as Geraldine Ferraro and John Edwards. They were Democrats so naturally they were treated much different link (HERE):

Palin runs a commercial fishing business, was a councilman and a mayor. As a councilman she helped to found her city police department and as mayor Palin oversaw tremendous growth in Wasilla as it became the cross roads of what is likely the two busyest highways in Alaska. So important did Wasilla become as the virtual crossroads of Alaska that a referendum to make Wasilla the capital of Alaska was only narrowly defeated. Palin easily won re-election as mayor.

After her terms as mayor Palin served on government commissions, brought down a corruption ring that had a stranglehold on the state and ended the political careers of many who put self over service. Palin beat an incumbent GOP governor in a primary and a popular former two term Democratic governor in the general election. Palin, while fighting both parties and their machines, got ethics reforms passed, overhauled the tax system so energy companies could no longer game the system, returned money to the taxpayers and achieved the largest state infrastructure improvement in American history, a 40 billion dollar pipeline that was languishing in state government for decades. Palin cut the Alaska budget by 10% and cut her own Governor’s expenses by 80% compared to the previous governor.

Palin held elective office for 5 years before Obama ran for anything and as mayor and governor was not afforded the option to vote “present” 130 times. I see lots of bloggers and journalists drawing an equivalency between Obama’s experience and Palin’s. When the truth is told there is no equivalency.

The most corrupt states in the union a few years ago were:

New Jersey
Louisianna
Illinois
Alaska

It is because of Sarah Palin that Alaska is off that list and Louisiana is making big progress toward change thanks to Governor Jindal. Barack Obama comes from what is now the second most corrupt political machine in the country, the Democrat/Daley machine in Illinois. What has Barack Obama done about it? Obama was a leader in the campaign for Blagojevich in Illinois. Look at the corruption and taxpayer crookery that has gone on with groups such as ACORN that Obama has worked with for years. What has he done about it?

Here is former Clinton Chief Political Strategist Dick Morris, who is also the author of the huge best seller FLEECED, talking about Sarah Palin’s experience as governor, a reformer and corruption fighter:

Did the media tell you these other highlights of Palin’s record:

Alaska invested $5 billion in state savings, overhauled education funding, and implemented the Senior Benefits Program that provides support for low-income older Alaskans.

Created Alaska’s Petroleum Systems Integrity Office

Created Climate Change Subcabinet for Alaska.

Overhauled the state’s ethics laws

Developed a competitive process to construct a gas pipeline [which languished for decades and is the largest state financed infrastructure project in US History].

Chaired the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission.

Chaired the National Governor’s Association (NGA) Natural Resources Committee,

Served two terms on the City Council and two terms as the mayor/manager of Wasilla.

Chaired the Alaska Conservation Commission.

Presided over the Alaska Conference of Mayors.

Any cursory examination of Palin’s record that is in any way serious shows that she is more qualified to be president than most others who have sought high office. The facts show that Ferraro, Edwards and Obama had no significant accomplishments in office before they ran for high office. Obama voted “present” 133 times as a state senator and had no significant legislation in the US Senate.

Here is former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich on Palin’s Record:

Here is Major General Craig E. Campbell on Sarah Palin. General Campbell is a career military officer and did not have to talk to Greta or do any interviews at all.

Now Let us Examine what the MSNBC host did in the second interview. You can see that once again he tried to mischaracterize the parts of the Palin interview that have already been released.

Round II:

The tactic here is to play a numbers game with Ziegler. The MSNBC anchor gives Ziegler a list of “Republicans” who say that Plain isn’t qualified. The names he listed off are mostly those who are considered the northeastern “blue-blood”  Rockefeller Republicans who have fallen into disfavor with the party. Class-ism is a problem that shows its ugly head in both parties. It is important to point out that there are people in every election and in both political parties who say that a candidate is not qualified.

Hotair.com comments, “A nice point scored by Ziegler halfway through about the incentives big media creates for Republicans to bash Palin.”

Democratic Governor Zell Miller and other hawkish Democrats said that John Kerry was not fit to be commander in chief. This video is a must see:

Look at all of the Democrats who said that Obama ws not ready to be president. In includes, Joe Biden, Joe Lieberman, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, John Edwards…. well just look at these videos:

In 2004 Obama said himself that he is not ready to for national office in 2008 because people should know what they are doing. You wont see this on MS-NBC:

So let’s get this straight, there are always people in both parties who fall off the partisam bandwagon in every election.

The other numbers game that the MSNBC anchor plays with Ziegler is that “According to a poll 49% of the people polled said that Palin was not qualified to be president so can all those people be wrong?” Of course the obvious inverse is also true, about half the country voted for Palin and must think she is qualified as evidenced by their vote so can all those people be wrong?

Zeigler has stated up front that he is a fan of Palin because of her record as governor, which is reasonable because any honest examination of her service as Mayor and Governor shows that her service has been rather extraordinary. The result has been 80% approval rating in her home state. MSNBC on the other hand, claims to be straight down the middle. Who do you trust is telling you the truth?

To wrap up – why was Sarah Palin so vague with Couric in the interview? Video: It is important to point out, that the media and the Obama campaign objected to Palin saying that Obama wants trillion dollar spending programs. If you have been watching the news over the lats few days, that is exactly what Obama has proposed. Palin was right. Hotair.com humorously asks, “Remember When Deficit Spending was Evil?”

In other interviews Palin answered all of the questions about the Supreme Court etc. The video is HERE, HERE, and HERE. MSNBC said that she never answered these questions. Well now you have the proof otherwise.

Big Hollywood Lands Extensive Interview with Palin – Ready to Fight Elite Media – UPDATED!

Posted by iusbvision on January 8, 2009

Big Hollywood got an extensive interview with Governor Palin. She really tells us what is on her mind and even talks about how some of the media still calls to get comments on Trig not really being her son…..(Trig is her son, it is her baby). Palin also talks about the hypocrisy and lies of the elite media.

This is an awesome interview you will not wnat to miss.

Press Release by Governor Palin.

[Apparently the elite media is spinning what she said in this youtube video to meet their own narrative. I was watching MSNBC today and they sure as heck are deliberately misinterpreting it with their own narrative – Editor]

Governor Palin Says to Media, “There You Go Again”

January 8, 2009, Anchorage, Alaska – Governor Sarah Palin today expressed dismay at continuing efforts in the media to take her comments out of context to create adversarial situations.

Ironically, the latest media eruption concerning the governor came out of an interview she gave to a filmmaker who is creating a documentary on distortions by the national press.

Gov. Palin gave the interview Monday as one of many voices contributing to the film “Media Malpractice…How Obama Got Elected,” concerning the performance of the media last fall. The filmmaker posted excerpts from the interview on YouTube.com, which then led to misleading reports in the press.

Particularly troubling was a post on Politico.com titled, “Palin: Media Goes Easy on Kennedy.” The headline inflames the governor’s quote in the transcript, in which she answered a question about media treatment of the prospect that Caroline Kennedy would be appointed to the U.S. Senate: “It’s going to be interesting to see how that plays out and I think that as we watch that we will perhaps be able to prove that there is a class issue here also that was such a factor in the scrutiny of my candidacy versus, say, the scrutiny of what her candidacy may be.”

“I was not commenting at all on Caroline Kennedy as a prospective U.S. senator, but rather on the seemingly arbitrary ways in which news organizations determine the level and kind of scrutiny given to those who aspire to public office,” Gov. Palin said today. “In fact, I consider Ms. Kennedy qualified and experienced, and she could serve New York well.”

The governor’s interview came as news organizations pursued erroneous and often outrageous leads on a variety of non-issues.

Just this week, false stories in the media surfaced alleging improper influence by the Palin administration or the governor herself. In one case, a state union alleged that the administration delayed serving an arrest warrant on the mother of Levi Johnston, the father of the governor’s grandson. The union admitted within 48 hours that the allegation was not true.

In another case, an irresponsible talk show host in Anchorage alleged in a newspaper column that the governor must have intervened to get a job for her future son-in-law, circumventing eligibility rules for the position. Again, the allegation was immediately discredited by proof that the governor did not influence Levi’s employment.

Meanwhile, bloggers, the Atlantic magazine and even the Anchorage Daily News continue to give credence to the sensational allegation that the governor’s child, Trig, is not hers.

“As a public official, I expect criticism and I expect to be held accountable for how I govern,” Gov. Palin said. “But the personal, salacious nature of recent reporting, and often the refusal of the media to correct obvious mistakes, unfortunately discredits too many in journalism today, making it difficult for many Americans to believe what they see in the media.”

Ignorance in Action: Obama Supporters Cannot Answer Basic Questions About Government or About Their Own Candidates…But Look at What They Did Know…

Posted by iusbvision on November 18, 2008

There has been an ongoing argument in elections class this semester. Do young people vote for Obama because of marketing or because of increased knowledge? I said that it is marketing, and even though it upset people, I contend that the public education system has produced a generation of of largely poor critical thinkers who have great self asteem but don’t know much. Such poeple make an emotional decision and use what intellect they have to justify it. I have NEVER (and I ask this question to almost every Obama supporter I meet if the topic of politics comes up) met a student or lay person, who supported Obama, that can even answer basic questions about his past life, which is strange because Obama has written two memoirs.

I contend that the media gives people only selected facts, and delivers them with an attitude or a narrative spin, The result is that people belive they are informed, when they are not.

This study below also shows how the media gets talking points out to people that they want delivered to the masses. The video and the study speak for themselves.

Zogby Poll of 512 Obama Voters 11/13/08-11/15/08 MOE +/- 4.4 points

97.1% High School Graduate or higher, 55% College Graduates

Results to 12 simple Multiple Choice Questions

57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing)

81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing)

82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing)

88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing)

56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).

And yet…..

Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes [Obama spent $232,000 per HOUR in October – Editor]

Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter

And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her “house,” even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!

Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.

Only .5% got all of them correct. (And we “gave” one answer that was technically not Palin, but actually Tina Fey)
