Only in a world where the elite, their puppet governments and the mainstream media have completely abandoned the truth and replaced it with lies is Joe Biden acceptable. The same applies in Ireland at the highest level but let us just look at Biden for now. Blatant lies from Joe Biden are totally acceptable in the present atmosphere. Biden has a long history of lying about himself, about his past and even about events that never took place.
Biden’s Make-believe World
Nancy Pelosi callously dismissed Tara Reade’s sexual assault accusations against Joe Biden. “I know him,” she said and that was the end of it.
Biden claimed that the Obama administration “didn’t lock people up in cages.” It is well documented that they did. He also claimed that, “Immediately, the moment [the Iraq War] started, I came out against it.” He even says “I was always labelled one of the most liberal members of Congress.” Politico rated all three of those assertions as false.
Biden’s Adventures in Law School
In a video is making the rounds Biden boasted at a 1987 rally, “I went to law school on a full academic scholarship…[and] ended up in the top half of my class.” Biden was in fact caught plagiarizing during law school. He “borrowed” five entire pages from a published law review article without attribution and which left him begging not to be expelled.
He also claimed that he “graduated with three degrees from undergraduate school” and that he was the “outstanding student in the political science department.”
None of those claims was true, as newscasters at the time affirmed. Biden in fact graduated 76th of 85 students in his law school class, He had only a partial scholarship and didn’t win top honours in his undergraduate discipline.
Biden’s Sensitivity About his IQ
In his 2007 autobiography “Promises to Keep” Biden explained that he had been angry at that rally since “it sounded to me that one of my own supporters doubted my intelligence.” According to a 1987 Newsweek piece, a supporter had “politely” asked Biden what law school he attended and how well he had done. Biden replied saying “I think I have a much higher IQ than you do,” and then reeled off his fabricated accomplishments concluding “I’d be delighted to sit down and compare my IQ to yours if you’d like, Frank.”
Biden even snapped at an auto worker who dared to challenge his stance on guns; “You’re full of sh*t”. He called an Iowa voter a “damn liar” for suggesting that Biden had helped his son gain access in Ukraine.
His Innate Insecurity
A Newsweek reporter wrote that Biden appears “hyper, glib and intellectually insecure,” and said that the 1987 encounter was critical to understanding why Biden’s first run at higher office flopped. “The clip…reflects a view of Biden’s character widely shared in the community. Reporters and political consultants long ago concluded that Biden’s chief character flaw was his tendency to wing it. He seems to lack a crucial synapse between brain and tongue, the one that makes the do-I-really-want-to-say-this decision.”
Now more than ever Biden blunders into self destructive cul de sacs with no way out such as; “If they believe Tara Reade, they probably shouldn’t vote for me.” A Harvard-Harris poll showed 55 percent of the country believed Tara Reade.
Biden’s 1987 campaign caught him lifting passages from a Neil Kinnock speech. Biden echoing Kinnocks history claimed that he was the first “in a thousand generations” to graduate from college and went on to repeat virtually verbatim the same story about his wife. Shockingly Biden claimed: “My ancestors…worked in the coal mines of Northeast Pennsylvania and would come up after 12 hours and play football for four hours,’’ even though Biden ever worked underground. That was another take from Kinnock’s family.
Complaints arose about Biden “borrowing” the work of others, in putting together his climate plan. As Vox reported, Biden’s plan “contains a number of passages that seem to have been copied and pasted, at times with very superficial changes” from a variety of sources. Biden’s tendency to mislead didn’t expire in 1988. He told audiences that after his former Vice Presidential stint in the White House, “I became a teacher. I became a professor.” Biden never taught students but take a lofty salary for a handful of speeches for the University of Pennsylvania .
More Total Fabrication
Then there was his fabricated near miss claims following his visit to Afghanistan to honour a heroic naval officer. Biden described the officer’s actions in detail, saying, “This is God’s truth, my word as a Biden.” But according to the Washington Post, no such incident occurred. Biden was lucky not to be hit by lightning.
Biden’s claims of have been arrested in the 1970’s for trying to visit Nelson Mandela in prison. It never happened. He has also claimed that he was a civil rights activist and co-sponsor of the Endangered Species Act. Those things never happened either.
Devoid of Character
Ones character doesn’t change. Biden doesn’t even appear to have one. His genial nature and those who need him as a willing front appear to have granted him license to mislead and blatantly lie. As Biden denies alleged misdeeds related to General Flynn, to his and Hunter his crooked son’s involvement in Ukraine and to Tara Reade to mention but a few cases, his history of bending the truth is unending.
