‘Demented Liar Joe Biden’

Posted on | October 13, 2022 | Comments Off on ‘Demented Liar Joe Biden’

Ace of Spades knows how to coin a phrase, writing about the umpteen-millionth reiteration of Our Alleged President’s habit of . . . Well, lying:

Joe Biden has often invoked his late son Beau Biden.
For example, after his botched withdrawal from Afghanistan he evoked his late son in a shameless effort to avoid criticism of his actions. . . .
It was grossly inappropriate for him to constantly invoke his son who died of brain cancer as though it was the same thing as if he had lost his life while serving our country. But on Wednesday while giving a speech in Colorado, Biden claimed that Beau actually lost his life in Iraq. . . .
Biden’s brain might be Swiss-cheesed, but it’s hard to wrap my head around the idea that he would have forgotten how his own son died. So this naturally begs the question as to whether Biden was confused because of how often he brings up Beau as though he was a war casualty or whether he just thinks it makes him look better to say he was.
And frankly I don’t know which answer is worse.

Ace compiles other examples of Biden’s less-than-truthful habits, including the false claim — which he made repeatedly, even after he was criticized for it — that the truck driver involved in his wife’s fatal auto accident was driving drunk. Biden deliberately slandered Curtis Dunn: “Not only was he not drunk, he wasn’t even at fault in the collision — Biden’s wife blew through a stop sign at an intersection, precipitating the collision, which the truck driver tried to avoid.”

Do you need me to repeat that? Can I make it any clearer? The truck driver was sober, Biden’s wife was at fault and yet Biden — WHO CERTAINLY KNOWS THESE FACTS, WHICH HAVE BEEN WIDELY REPORTED — continued to defame Curtis Dunn.

This was not an innocent mistake. It wasn’t stuttering, or a momentary lapse of memory. It was straight-out deliberate slander.

A powerful politician deliberately endeavored to smear the reputation of an honest, hard-working citizen, and why? Because Biden was seeking pity. He wanted people to feel sorry for him, to view him as a disadvantaged victim, so that he could posture (as he always does) as courageous — BRAVE JOE BIDEN, HERO OF THE COMMON MAN!

The man craves admiration so desperately that this craving has warped his entire personality, leading him to tell falsehoods — blatant lies that he knows to be false — in his pathetic efforts to make himself seem virtuous and deserving of admiration. And the weirdest part of it all is that Biden apparently expects to be admired for his honesty:

So deeply convinced is Joe Biden of his own honesty that he thinks his very name is synonymous with truth-telling:

“I give you my word as a Biden: I will never stoop to President Trump’s level.”

“I give you my word as a Biden: If I am elected president I will do everything in my power to protect our children from gun violence.”
— March 10, 2020

“I give you my word as a Biden: When I’m president, I will lead with science, listen to the experts and heed their advice, and always tell you the truth.”
— March 18, 2020

When I first noticed him using this “my word as a Biden” phrase during the 2020 campaign, I was puzzled. Has the Biden family been so prominently associated with honesty that when Joe says this, most Americans say, “Well, that settles it”? Of course not. In fact, Biden’s first presidential campaign, in 1988, collapsed in disgrace specifically because of Joe’s dishonesty, when he was caught plagiarizing others — most notably British Labour leader Neil Kinnock — in his speeches . . .

The lack of self-awareness expressed by that phrase “my word as a Biden” is remarkable, and yet the “Democratic operatives with bylines” simply don’t wish to acknowledge what an infamous liar Biden is.
