    Joe Biden's son discharged from Navy after reportedly testing positive for cocaine

    This is astounding! A man in his 40s. Vice President's son. In the Navy. And he thinks he will get away with doing cocaine?!

    Biden's son discharged from Navy after reportedly testing positive for cocaine

    The son of Vice President Joe Biden says he is “embarrassed” after being discharged from the Navy Reserve earlier this year --- reportedly after testing positive for cocaine.
    The Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the matter, reported Thursday that Hunter Biden’s short-lived military career ended because he failed a drug test after reporting to his unit in 2013. According to the Wall Street Journal, the Navy discharged him in February of this year.

    Biden said in a statement to Fox News that he respects the Navy’s decision but did not specify why he was discharged.
    “It was the honor of my life to serve in the U.S. Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge,” he said. “I respect the Navy's decision. With the love and support of my family, I'm moving forward.”
    Biden, 44, made the decision to join the military late in life. According to the Wall Street Journal, Biden was commissioned as an ensign in the Navy Reserve in 2013 after deciding the previous year to join the service as a public affairs officer.
    However, Biden was given a drug test after reporting to his unit at Navy Public Affairs Support Element East in Norfolk, Va. and tested positive for cocaine, the Wall Street Journal reported. According to the paper, the Navy would not specify what sort of discharge he was given.
    Vice President Biden spoke about his son’s decision to join the Navy late in life at the American Legion’s Salute to Heroes Inaugural Ball in 2013, joking that his son’s decision was a result of poor judgment.
    “We have a lot of bad judgment in my family,” Biden said. “My son over 40 just joined the Navy to be sworn in.”
    Hunter Biden is a lawyer who serves as a managing partner for a Rosemont Seneca Partners, an investment firm. He made headlines earlier this year when he was hired to be a director and lawyer for a Ukraine company promoting energy independence from Moscow.
    The move raised eyebrows, as Vice President Biden and others in the Obama administration have attempted to influence energy policies and other issues of the Ukrainian government as it battles Russia and pro-Russian separatists to control the county.
    The vice president's spokeswoman, Kendra Barkoff, has said that Biden's son is a private citizen and a lawyer, and that Joe Biden "does not endorse any particular company and has no involvement with this company."

    WASHINGTON—Vice President Joe Biden ’s son Hunter was discharged from the Navy Reserve this year after testing positive for cocaine, according to people familiar with the matter.
    Hunter Biden, a lawyer by training who is now a managing partner at an investment company, had been commissioned as an ensign in the Navy Reserve, a part-time position. But after failing a drug test last year, his brief military career ended.
    Mr. Biden, 44 years old, decided to pursue military service relatively late, beginning the direct-commission process to become a public-affairs officer in the Navy Reserve in 2012. Because of his age—43 when he was to be commissioned—he needed a waiver to join the Navy. He received a second Navy waiver because of a drug-related incident when he was a young man, according to people familiar with the matter. Military officials say such drug waivers aren’t uncommon.
    Mr. Biden was commissioned as an ensign on May 7, 2013, and assigned to Navy Public Affairs Support Element East in Norfolk, Va., a reserve unit, according to the Navy. In June 2013, after reporting to his unit in Norfolk, he was given a drug test, which turned up positive for cocaine, according to people familiar with the situation. Mr. Biden was discharged in February, the Navy said.
    Mr. Biden said in a statement that it was “the honor of my life to serve in the U.S. Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge. I respect the Navy’s decision. With the love and support of my family, I’m moving forward.”
    The vice president’s office declined to comment. The Navy said Mr. Biden met all of the criteria for a direct commission, but declined to provide any details of why he was discharged. “Like other junior officers, the details of Ens. Biden’s discharge are not releasable due to the Privacy Act,” Cmdr. Ryan Perry, a Navy spokesman, said.
    Navy personnel who are discharged from the military because of a failed drug test don’t receive honorable discharges. Most are given an “other than honorable” or “general” discharge. It isn’t clear which discharge Mr. Biden received, and the Navy doesn’t release the discharge status of low-ranking officers or junior enlisted personnel.
    Mr. Biden was recommended for a direct commission after interviewing with a board of Naval officers, according to the Navy. The direct-commission process was created to allow the Navy to tap civilians with needed skills. The program allows civilians who have not attended the Naval Academy, a reserve-officer training course or officer-candidate school to join the military by attending only an abbreviated training program.
    The Navy typically accepts about six people into the public-affairs reserves each year. Navy reservists usually serve one weekend a month and two weeks a year, but they can be called up to serve as much as a year on active duty.
    The vice president and his wife, Jill Biden, speak regularly about the pride they take in being a military family, often referring to son Beau Biden’s time in the Delaware Army National Guard and his yearlong deployment to Iraq. After Hunter Biden joined the Navy, his mother said he was following in the footsteps of two of his grandfathers, who also served in the Navy.
    “This year, I’m looking forward to standing with our son, Hunter, when he is commissioned as an ensign in the United States Navy,” she said in 2012.
    In January 2013, Joe Biden joked about Mr. Biden’s decision to pursue military service at age 42. “We have a lot of bad judgment in my family,” the vice president said at the American Legion’s Salute to Heroes Inaugural Ball. “My son, who is over 40, just joined the United States Navy. He’s about to be sworn in as an officer, Hunter Biden.”
    Hunter Biden, who is married with three children, is the younger of the vice president’s two sons. Beau Biden serves as the Delaware attorney general and has announced plans to run for governor in 2016. Joe and Jill Biden also have a daughter, Ashley, who joined the Delaware Center for Justice in 2012 as associate executive director.
    Hunter Biden has embarked on several different professional ventures, including his recent appointment with a Ukrainian firm, that have drawn scrutiny. In May, he joined the board of the Ukrainian gas producer, Burisma Holdings Ltd., which is controlled by a former security and energy official for Ukraine’s ousted former president. The announcement that Mr. Biden would be responsible for Burisma’s legal unit raised concerns about potential conflicts of interest, because his father, the vice president, was engaged in diplomatic efforts involving Ukraine.
    At the time, the vice president’s office called Hunter Biden “a private citizen” and said Joe Biden didn’t endorse any particular company. Hunter Biden didn’t return calls seeking comment on the matter.
    Earlier in his career, Mr. Biden worked as a lobbyist. He quit the business and resigned his partnership at a Washington firm after his father was named to join the presidential ticket in 2008.
    Now, Mr. Biden is a managing partner at Rosemont Seneca Partners, an investment company. He also serves as chairman of World Food Program USA, which calls itself “a humanitarian agency fighting hunger in the world today,” and he is an adjunct assistant professor at Georgetown University.

    The Biden Family: Plugs & Drugs

    The Biden Family: Plugs & Drugs

    Rodney Lee ConoverOctober 17, 2014

    The Bible says a son is not responsible for the sins of his Father and that is often interpreted to mean don’t involve the children of people just because you have an issue with them.

    Which I interpret to mean don’t drag a politician’s kids into the conversation because it’s not their fault their parents or parent went into politics.
    So when the mainstream media left Chelsea Clinton alone (for the most part) I applauded them and the same goes for the troubled son of Al Gore – arrested multiple times for drug possession.

    The media left the kid alone. Good for them.
    Of course, those were Democrats and there were a whole set of new rules installed for the children of George and Laura Bush.
    Those kids were not left alone, but harassed, photoed, reported on, followed and exposed for everything and anything they might say or do.
    And don’t get me started on Sarah Palin’s family. The press lied, dogged and snapped photos over fences to get to those kids – even saying one of her children wasn’t even hers.
    The mainstream press is a bunch of biased scumbags. Thus, this article.
    How does it feel? Not good, but it’s time to fight fire with fire:

    Sorry, wrong Hunter..

    First we read that Hunter Biden, a 44-year-old lawyer looking to pad his political resume with a Navy Reserve stint (in his 40’s for his first enrollment?) was drummed out of said Navy because he tested positive for coke.
    What kind of dumbass knows he’s going to be drug-tested and maybe his career ruined – but still has to get coked-up?
    The answer is: An addict, probably.
    And Joe Biden’s other kid, Ashley? Party girl – coke, pot, arrested for possession, whatever – right?
    Hat tip NY Post:
    Ashley 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, Uncoached.com, after Joseph Biden’s election as vice president last November about Ashley’s partying.
    Normally, I’d feel pretty bad about this kind of reporting, but you know what liberals? Screw you. How does it feel? Did you feel bad about printing and repeated ad nauseum about Ms. Palin’s beautiful baby not being hers? She’s a grandmother – does that matter?
    How do you think Barbara Bush felt about reading the things you printed about her grandchildren? Put yourself in her shoes ever?
    The answer is no. Liberals don’t understand anything except destruction. I’m up for it. Brace yourselves.

    Biden Family Political Dynasty? Nope. Coke. » Joe For America

    Biden Family Political Dynasty? Nope. Coke.

    Rodney Lee ConoverOctober 17, 2014

    Normally I’d say leave the kids alone, but Joe Biden’s kid is 44-years-old and clearly out to exploit the Navy for his political career. Sadly, he just shot it to hell because he can’t stay away from the nose candy.
    Hunter Biden, the youngest son of the vice president, was discharged from the Navy Reserve in February after he tested positive for cocaine, the Navy said.
    Like I said, normally I’d keep the kids out of it, but as you can read below, Joe’s “kid” is trying to get a quickie military resume, but he’s too busy snorting coke to even get his political career started. But hey – we got a cocaine user in the White House now – maybe this will help him, who knows?
    Hat tip NY Post
    Hunter, a former lobbyist who works at an investment firm, had been commissioned as an ensign in the Navy Reserve, The Wall Street Journal said.

    The service did not give a reason earlier this year when it discharged the 44-year-old Biden barely a year after he was selected for the part-time position as a public-affairs officer in the Navy Reserve.

    Her needed one waiver to join the Navy because of his age. He also received a second Navy waiver because of a drug-related incident when he was a young man, according to The Wall Street Journal.

    The former ensign released a statement through his attorney Thursday, but did not address the drug use.

    “It was the honor of my life to serve in the US Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge,” he said.

    He added he respected the Navy’s decision and was moving forward with his family’s support.
    What – you haven’t read about this in the mainstream press? What if this were Sarah Palin’s kid? Yes, it would be everywhere…
    Joe Biden's Son Hunter Kicked Out Of Navy For Drug Use
    Vice President Joe Biden's son was booted from the Navy Reserves earlier because he tested positive for drugs , it was revealed on Thursday. A U.S. official told NBC News that Hunter Biden was kicked out of the Reserves earlier this year after he failed a drug test. The Wall Street Journal first reported the incident, alleging the drug was cocaine. Hunter Biden, who is married with three kids, issued a statement Thursday evening through his lawyer, saying: "It was the honor of my life to serve in the US Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge. I respect the Navy's decision. With the love and support of my family, I'm moving forward."

    Well, it’s a scandal but not a surprise: Vice Presidents, believe it or not, actually have a lot of pull.

    Why Hunter Biden will get away with being thrown out of the Navy for cocaine use.

    By: Moe Lane (Diary) | October 18th, 2014 at 11:00 AM | 16

    The more I read about Hunter Biden (VP Joe Biden’s son) cocaine-fueled discharge from the Navy, the more it stinks on ice:
    …it is worth noting that, while Biden’s summary discharge occurred last February, it did not become public until the Wall Street Journal revealed the story this week. Biden’s statement about “the honor of my life to serve in the U.S. Navy” — for one month! — was issued through his lawyer.
    Evidently there was an effort, successful for eight months, to conceal this curious episode. But while the attempted cover-up is, perhaps, understandable from Vice President Biden’s perspective, the real scandal here is not Hunter Biden’s cocaine use, or his father’s protection of an errant son, but the fact that Hunter Biden was commissioned in the naval reserve in the first place.
    Well, it’s a scandal but not a surprise: Vice Presidents, believe it or not, actually have a lot of pull. Even Joe Biden. Enough to get an unqualified and overaged son a commission, at least; and enough to delay a cocaine scandal.
    It’s the second part of that that really bugs me, honestly. We have been finding military sinecures for political scions for a long, long time: long enough to know how to go about the process with an eye to minimizing the damage. And sometimes it even works out: the scion turns out to make a decent enough soldier. And sometimes the scion is a purblind fool* who can’t keep the cocaine spoon out of his nose, or however it is that those people do their drugs. Hunter Biden will, in the end, get away with it – he’s not even up for a review of his law license, because the law doesn’t require one and nobody in Connecticut is stupid enough to initiate proceedings against the Vice President’s son – but we should count our blessings. Biden, after all, might have gotten lucky and managed to avoid a drug test long enough to get the career-enhancing status of ‘military veteran.’
    God in His Heaven, but do I loathe political dynasties**.
    Moe Lane (crosspost)
    *The US Navy runs random, unannounced drug tests for exactly this reason. Biden has no kick coming.
    **Yes, I’m aware of the potential looming irony. At least this generation of Bushes actually still know how to run things.

    The Hunter Biden Chronicles


    By: Michelle Malkin
    10/22/2014 06:00 AM

    Video at the page link:

    Everything you need to know about Beltway nepotism, corporate cronyism and corruption can be found in the biography of Robert Hunter Biden. Where are the Occupy Wall Street rabble-rousers and enemies of elitist privilege when you need them? Straining their neck muscles to look the other way.
    The youngest son of Vice President Joe Biden made news last week after the Wall Street Journal revealed he had been booted from the Navy Reserve for cocaine use. His drug abuse was certainly no surprise to the Navy, which issued him a waiver for a previous drug offense before commissioning him as a public affairs officer at the age of 43. The Navy also bent over backward a second time with an age waiver so he could secure the cushy part-time job.

    Papa Biden loves to tout his middle-class, “Average Joe” credentials. But rest assured, if his son had been “Hunter Smith” or “Hunter Jones” or “Hunter Brown,” the Navy’s extraordinary dispensations would be all but unattainable. Oh, and if he had been “Hunter Palin,” The New York Times would be on its 50th front-page investigative report by now.
    Despite the disgraceful ejection from our military, Hunter’s Connecticut law license won’t be subject to automatic review. Because, well, Biden.
    Biden’s bennies are not just one-offs. Skating by, flouting rules and extracting favors are the story of Hunter’s life.
    Hunter’s first job, acquired after Joe Biden won his 1996 Senate re-election bid in Delaware, was with MBNA. That’s the credit card conglomerate and top campaign finance donor that forked over nearly $63,000 in bundled primary and general contributions from its employees to then Sen. Biden. As I’ve reported previously, Daddy Biden secured his custom-built, multimillion-dollar house in Delaware’s ritziest Chateau Country neighborhood with the help of a leading MBNA corporate executive. Average Joe went on to carry legislative water for MBNA in the Senate for years.
    Hunter zoomed up to senior vice president by early 1998 and then scored a plum position in the Clinton administration’s Commerce Department, specializing in “electronic commerce” before returning to MBNA three years later as a high-priced “consultant.” While he collected those “consulting” (translation: nepotistic access-trading) fees, Hunter became a “founding partner” in the lobbying firm of Oldaker, Biden and Belair in 2002.
    William Oldaker was Papa Biden’s former fundraiser, campaign treasurer and general counsel — a Beltway barnacle whose Democratic machine days dated back to Teddy Kennedy’s 1980 presidential bid. Under Oldaker’s tutelage, Hunter lobbied for drug companies, universities and other deep-pocketed clients to the tune of nearly $4 million billed to the company by 2007.
    Coincidentally, then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama personally requested and secured cozy taxpayer-subsidized earmarks for several of Hunter’s clients.
    Hunter got himself appointed to multiple corporate board positions, including a directorship with Eudora Global. It’s an investment firm founded by one Jeffrey Cooper, head of one of the biggest asbestos-litigation firms in the country. SimmonsCooper, based in Madison County, Ill., donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Biden the Elder’s various political campaigns over the past decade — all while the firm poured $6.5 million into lobbying against a key tort-reform bill, which former Sen. Biden worked hard to defeat. Cooper also contributed to the Delaware attorney-general campaign of Hunter’s older brother, Beau, and paid Beau for legal work on lucrative asbestos-litigation cases.
    Hunter also was previously a top official at Paradigm Global Advisors, a hedge fund holding company founded with Vice President Biden’s brother, James, and marketed by convicted finance fraudster Allen Stanford. As Paradigm chairman, Hunter oversaw half a billion dollars of client money invested in hedge funds while remaining a lobbyist at Oldaker, Biden and Belair. Cooper chipped in $2 million for the ill-fated venture, which went bust amid nasty fraud lawsuits.
    Continually failing upward, Hunter snagged a seat on the board of directors of taxpayer-subsidized, stimulus-inflated Amtrak, where he pretended not to be a lobbyist, but rather an “effective advocate” for the government railroad system serving the 1 percenters’ D.C.-NYC corridor.
    So, where does a coke-abusing influence peddler go after raking in gobs of Daddy-enabled dough and abusing the U.S. Navy’s ill-considered generosity? Back to Cronyland! Hunter joined Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma Holdings — owned by a powerful Russian government sympathizer who fled to Russia in February — this spring. The hypocritical lobbyist-bashers at the White House deny he will be lobbying and deny any conflict of interest.
    Meanwhile, Just Like You Joe was whipping up class envy in South Carolina last week. “Corporate profits have soared,” he railed, thanks to “these guys running hedge funds in New York,” who are to blame for “income inequality.” You know, like his son and brother and their Beltway back-scratching patrons.
    The Bidens: They’re not like us.

    If you step back and look at this at another angle... Ole Joe Biden got his son out of the military in the fastest way possible because the elite are pushing for WWIII with Russia and China

    a drug conviction for Cocaine gets you out of the military at a record pace

    Joe Biden's Son Kicked Out Of Navy After Testing Positive For Cocaine, Receives Honorable Discharge

    Will
    4 days ago
    Hunter Biden, 44, the youngest son of Vice President “Shotgun” Joe Biden has been discharged from the Navy after failing a urinalysis just one month after receiving his commission.

    Biden had to get two waivers in order to join the Navy. One waiver was for his age, and the other was for a prior drug related incident.

    Biden gave a statement regarding the incident, “It was the honor of my life to serve in the US Navy, and I deeply regret and am embarrassed that my actions led to my administrative discharge.” So, the couple of months he spent in dereliction of duty, blowing rails of coke and desecrating the uniform was an honor? That’s impressive.

    The full details of his discharge will not be released, but he was given an honorable, administrative discharge. So, basically he gets to pretend to be military officer, and when it doesn’t work out he just gets to go on his merry way like nothing happened.

    “That’s okay, little buddy. Those repercussions for not adhering to the standards set for military officers are just for the little blue-collared people. tell your daddy I said hi.” ~Will

    REVEALED: Joe Biden’s Cocaine-Using, Navy-Busted Son Now Working For Huge Ukraine Company

    ...discharged from the Navy Reserve in February of 2014...

    Norvell RoseOctober 17, 2014



    Within weeks of being kicked out of the Navy Reserve after testing positive for cocaine use, Vice President Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, was appointed to the board of directors of the largest non-governmental gas producer in war-torn Ukraine.
    Only now has it been revealed that Robert Hunter Biden, the vice president’s second son, was discharged from the Navy Reserve in February of 2014. Less than a year earlier, he had applied for and was accepted into a Navy program that allows civilians with no prior service to receive a limited duty officer’s commission.

    Citing sources familiar with Biden’s situation, the Wall Street Journal reports:
    Mr. Biden was commissioned as an ensign on May 7, 2013, and assigned to Navy Public Affairs Support Element East in Norfolk, Va., a reserve unit, according to the Navy.
    In June 2013, after reporting to his unit in Norfolk, he was given a drug test, which turned up positive for cocaine, according to people familiar with the situation. Mr. Biden was discharged in February, the Navy said.
    Following reports of his discharge for drug use, Hunter Biden, who is a lawyer by training, acknowledged the news accounts are true.
    What makes the Biden “bust” especially interesting, though, is the fact that the vice president’s son, who graduated from Yale Law School, was made a member of the board of directors of a huge Ukrainian company shortly after being kicked out of the U.S. Navy Reserve.
    As noted in Hunter Biden’s Wikipedia profile:
    On April 18, 2014, Burisma Holdings announced Biden’s appointment to the board of directors in a press release. Burisma is the largest non-governmental gas producer in the Ukraine, it was incorporated in 2006 and is based in Limassol, Cyprus – a European tax haven.
    The Wall Street Journal, which broke the Biden story, says that the appointment of the VP’s son to the board of the giant gas producer in the nation now in fierce conflict with Russia raised a few eyebrows:
    …he joined the board of the Ukrainian gas producer, Burisma Holdings Ltd., which is controlled by a former security and energy official for Ukraine’s ousted former president.
    The announcement that Mr. Biden would be responsible for Burisma’s legal unit raised concerns about potential conflicts of interest, because his father, the vice president, was engaged in diplomatic efforts involving Ukraine.
    The controversy over Hunter Biden’s Burisma position was further explored in an article on time.com:
    …the company, Burisma Holdings, did not disclose at the time the scope of their plans for influencing the U.S. government.
    Recently released documents show that Biden’s hiring coincided with the launch of a new effort to lobby members of Congress about the role of the company in Ukraine and the country’s quest for energy independence.
    There’s no indication in the recent reporting about Hunter Biden’s cocaine-related discharge that his drug use led to any sort of investigation by law enforcement.
