Joe Biden Tells Touching Story of Meeting a Navy Captain… But it Never Happened

H/T Godfather Politics.

Slow Joe The Gaff Machine Biden’s handlers better shut him up before he blows the nomination.

Old “Slow Joe” Biden is at it again, making up stories about things he never did with people he never did them with, this time it is the tear-inducing story of a Navy Captain he said he met… but it is an incident that never happened.

Biden has been on a real roll the last few weeks telling tall tales about the time he was vice president for what’s his name and inventing stories that placed him in the thick of history… even though many of these tales never happened.

This time, Joe told the moving tale of his non-existent meeting with a U.S. Navy captain.

As the Daily Wire reported:

Biden’s attempt to pin a Silver Star on his chest because his daring actions to save the soldier came too late.

But after Biden told his little tale, we all learned that it never happened.

The Washington Post reports that Biden told the story of a four-star general who asked Biden, when he was vice-president, to take a dangerous trip to Kunar province in Afghanistan so he could put the Silver Star on the chest of a Navy captain who had rappelled down a 60-foot ravine under fire and brought back the body of an American soldier.

Biden said he was warned about the danger of the trip but bravely insisted, “We can lose a vice president. We can’t lose many more of these kids. Not a joke.” Biden claimed that when he attempted to pin the medal on the Navy captain, the soldier responded, “Sir, I don’t want the damn thing! Do not pin it on me, Sir! Please, Sir. Do not do that! He died. He died!”

“This is the God’s truth. My word as a Biden,” the former VP told the crowd.

Clearly his word as a Biden is not worth much.

“Except almost every detail in the story appears to be incorrect,” the Post said

As the Washington Post explained:

Biden visited Kunar province in 2008 as a U.S. senator, not as vice president. The service member who performed the celebrated rescue that Biden described was a 20-year-old Army specialist, not a much older Navy captain. And that soldier, Kyle J. White, never had a Silver Star, or any other medal, pinned on him by Biden. At a White House ceremony six years after Biden’s visit, White stood at attention as President Barack Obama placed a Medal of Honor, the nation’s highest award for valor, around his neck.

This comes on the heels of Biden’s lie that he was vice president during the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida and that he met with the victims and their families in the White House. Only the shooting occurred a year after he left office.

Then there is this:

Joe Biden paints a vivid scene of pinning a medal on a Navy captain in Afghanistan’s Kunar province. But the tale of heroism – an emotional highlight in speeches since 2016 – seems to be an embellished jumble of several real events.

In the space of three minutes last week, Joe Biden got the time period, the location, the heroic act, the type of medal, the military branch and the rank of the recipient wrong, as well as his own role in the ceremony.

Democratic Party embraces nonreligious voters, criticizes ‘religious liberty’ in new resolution

H/T Fox News.

What more can DemocRats do to further alienate voters?

The Democratic National Committee (DNC) passed a resolution Saturday praising the values of “religiously unaffiliated” Americans as the “largest religious group within the Democratic Party.”

The resolution, which was unanimously passed at the DNC’s summer meeting on Aug. 24 in San Francisco, Calif., was championed by the Secular Coalition of America, an organization that lobbies on behalf of atheists, agnostics, and humanists on public policy. The group celebrated the DNC’s move as the first time a major party “embraced American nonbelievers.”

“Religiously unaffiliated Americans overwhelmingly share the Democratic Party’s values,” said the resolution, which adds they should advocate for “rational public policy based on sound science and universal humanistic values.”

Sarah Levin, director of governmental affairs for the Secular Coalition of America, praised it as a way “to ensure that policy is driven by science and evidence, not sectarian beliefs.”

The move comes as Democratic presidential candidates have ramped up their religious rhetoric on the campaign trail, but the party announced it is targeting “nonreligious voters” to try to beat President Trump, who solidified the evangelical vote in 2016.

“America was founded as a secular government charged with representing and protecting the freedoms of people of all faiths and none,” Levin added. “I am proud to see the Democratic Party take that to heart by bringing secular Americans into the fold.”

Political pundits have pointed out Democrats’ so-called God problem in the past and their efforts to solve it.

In 2012, the last election Democrats won, a headline from the convention read: “Democrats boo God.” In 2016, attendees heckled a preacher during the opening prayer. And on Saturday, Democrats took a shot at believers who use “religious liberty” to threaten the civil rights of LGBTQ Americans.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation’s co-president, Annie Laurie Gaylor, called the resolution a “political landmark” that is “long overdue.”

The Wisconsin-based FFRF “is optimistic that the DNC resolution is a sign of bigger and better things to come for freethinkers, and would like to see every party at every level of government adopt similar resolutions.”

Alyssa Milano, Reveals ‘Key to Beating Trump’, ‘Biden at the Top and a Harris Vice Presidency’

H/T Breitbart.

Slow Joe The Gaff Machine Biden and Kamala “On My Knees” Harris what a team.

Alyssa had better prepared to be shocked in November 2020 when President Trump gets reelected.

Actress turned leftist activist Alyssa Milano revealed the “key to beating Trump” in an op-ed published in The Hill Tuesday evening: “Biden at the top and a Harris vice presidency,” featuring virtually every other candidate serving in tops roles in a hypothetical Biden administration.

Milano — who is, arguably, one of the most outspoken left-wing celebrities in Hollywood — indicated in her op-ed that Joe Biden (D) and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) serve as the best duo to take down President Donald Trump in 2020.

“Imagine this: Vice President Biden is currently leading the field, so let’s start there. With Biden at the top and a Harris vice presidency we would speak to the majority of Americans who prefer Biden to any other candidate,” Milano argued.

She did not stop there, encouraging Democrats to embrace the majority of Democrat contenders in other capacities within her hypothetical Biden/Harris administration. Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), for example, would make for a fabulous attorney general, in which he could “take on the NRA and the racial injustices he so often faced as mayor of Newark.”

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) could head up the Department of Education, Milano wrote, with the Massachusetts senator’s history as an educator likely in mind.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) — a fierce advocate for overhauling the health care system for Medicare for All — could serve as the Secretary of Health and Human Services and would “ensure every person in America could access health care we could afford,” the actress continued.

Milano even found positions within the “Democratic Dream Team” for lower-level candidates like Julián Castro (D), Andrew Yang, and Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D), who could serve as the “first Latinx Homeland Security Secretary,” “head of the Council of Economic Advisors,” and secretary of Veteran’s Affairs, respectively.

She continued:

Beto O’Rourke as chief of staff to the president would guide the nation’s most important decisions with compassion and ease. Kirsten Gillibrand as Commerce secretary. Amy Klobuchar as Agriculture secretary. Former candidate Jay Inslee bringing environmental issues to the level they deserve as the helm of the Department of Energy. Strong union supporter Tim Ryan as Secretary of Labor. Treasury Secretary Delaney. Recently withdrawn Congressman and Veteran Seth Moulton as Secretary of Defense. Bullock at FEC. Bennet at Interior.

Milano even recruited former First Lady Michelle Obama to serve as the Secretary of State in her fantasy administration, contending that our “reputation and luster around the globe would be instantly restored” the moment she took the role.

“The fact of the matter is that these candidates all agree on the ‘what.’ Their generally minor differences are in the ‘how,’” Milano argued, encouraging fellow Democrats to “get behind them all.”

“Our country cannot afford another four years of Donald Trump. Desperate times call for thinking outside the box with Democratic measures. If we want to beat Trump, we know whom to elect: All of them,” she wrote. “Or we can just keep proceeding with politics as usual and act shocked when he’s re-elected.”

Kirsten Gillibrand drops out of 2020 race: ‘I’m ending my presidential campaign

H/T Fox News.

The 2020 DemocRat Clown Car just go lighter by one more clown.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York on Wednesday became the latest Democrat to exit the 2020 presidential primary, announcing that she is abandoning her campaign for the White House after failing to meet the fundraising and polling thresholds for September’s debate in Houston.

“After more than eight incredible months, I’m ending my presidential campaign,” Gillibrand said in a video on Twitter. “We wanted to win this race, but it’s important to know when its not your time and to know how you can best serve your commmunity and country.”

She added: “I believe I can best serve by helping unite us to beat Donald Trump in 2020.”

Gillibrand is the most-well known Democrat to exit the crowded — but winnowing — field of White House hopefuls.

Gillibrand topped an incumbent Republican in a conservative part of upstate New York to get to the U.S. House in 2007, and was appointed to the Senate two years later, filling the seat vacated by Hillary Clinton, who was tapped to be U.S. secretary of state. Gillibrand later easily retained the seat during a 2010 special election, as well as in 2012 and 2018.

Vocal in the Senate on curbing sexual harassment and promoting equal pay for women and family leave, Gillibrand made those and her staunch defense of abortion rights the core of her presidential bid. She stood out in the crowded field by becoming the first Democratic presidential hopeful to declare that she’d only appoint judges to the Supreme Court who consider the landmark 1973 Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion nationwide settled law, though most of her competitors quickly followed suit.

After forming an exploratory committee in January and formally entering the race by calling President Trump a “coward” in a March speech delivered near the New York City skyscraper bearing his name, Gillibrand began with $10.5-plus million left over from her 2018 Senate campaign in her presidential campaign account

That seemed like more than enough resources for the long haul. But Gillibrand was the first Senate Democrat in December 2017 to call for Minnesota Sen. Al Franken’s resignation amid numerous allegations of sexual misconduct, and she has said for months that that alienated donors and some voters in his neighboring, make-or-break Iowa.

Many of her Senate colleagues seeking the Democratic presidential nomination — including Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kamala Harris of California and Bernie Sanders of Vermont — followed her lead in calling for Franken to step down before he quit in January 2018. But Gillibrand has continually faced more questions than others about being too quick to condemn him.

In the past two weeks, former Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado, Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington and Rep. Seth Moulton of Massachusetts all dropped out of the White House race. All three immediately moved on to down-ballot races. Hickenlooper launched a bid for the Democratic Senate nomination in Colorado, while Inslee and Moulton announced re-election bids for their respective offices.

SOME 2020 DEMS FUME AT DNC OVER DEBATE CRITERIA CRACKDOWN

Gillibrand was reelected to her second term in the Senate in 2018 and won’t have to face a challenger for her seat until 2024, but she told Fox News last week that she would be open to serving as her party’s vice presidential nominee.

“I’m here to serve,” she said. “I can serve in any capacity.”

‘I’m Not Going Nuts,’ Says Joe Biden After Not Knowing Where He Spoke

H/T Godfather Politics.

I am in partial agreement with Slow Joe The Gaff Machine Biden he is not going nuts he is already there.

At a recent campaign appearance, former Vice President Joe Biden became confused about where he recently spoke and after stumbling around for a few seconds he finally blurted out, “I’m not going nuts.”

The latest in a long, long string of ongoing gaffes only undermines whispers that Biden is going senile and is not mentally fit to become president.

At the event in New Hampshire, Biden began to talk about his vision for healthcare but suddenly could not remember where he had just spoken on the topic.

“I just spoke at a, at Dartmouth for healthcare at the medical school, er, not, I guess it wasn’t actually on the campus, but people from the medical school were at… er… I want to be clear, I’m not going nuts, I’m not sure whether it was the medical school or where the hell I spoke, but it was on a campus. It was on a campus and a dean was there.”

 

Biden’s latest gaffe comes only days after mistakenly saying he was in Vermont when he was actually in New Hampshire.

Biden was speaking in Keene, New Hampshire, and was asked about the town he was standing in. But he then noted how great it was to be in Vermont.

“I love this place. Look, what’s not to like about Vermont in terms of the beauty of it? And what a neat town. This is like a scenic, beautiful town. The mayor’s been a good guy. Everybody has been really friendly. I like Keene a lot,” Biden said.

President Donald Trump took a swipe at Biden after a previous gaffe.

“Joe is not playing with a full deck. He made that comment, I said ‘woah,’ ” Trump said earlier after Biden told supporters that “poor kids are “just as talented as white kids” in a line seeming to assume that all white kids are rich and all black kids are poor.

But that wasn’t the worst gaffe this month. On August 10, Biden insisted he was still vice president when the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School happened and that he met the victims and their parents in the White House even though he had been out of office for over a year, already, before the incident occurred.

Sadly, Biden has a long history of lying about where he was and what he was doing during particular historical events.

 

 

 

Trump Just Got A Republican Primary Challenger, & He Has A History of ‘Racist’ Comments

H/T Flag And Cross.

Does this racist asshat really think he can take the 2020  GOP nomination away from President Trump?

Oh, brother…

Former Congressman Joe Walsh announced on Sunday that he’s running for president as a Republican.

Obviously, his candidacy will be a sideshow just like the majority of Democrats running to unseat President Trump.

During an interview with ABC’s George Snuffaluffagus, Walsh said some pretty mean things about 45.

STEPHANOPOULOSHave you reached a decision?

WALSHYes – and it’s great to be with you. I’m going to run for president and I’m to be on your show announcing my candidacy. George, no surprise, we’ve got a guy in the White House who’s unfit, completely unfit to be president, and it stuns me that nobody stepped up, nobody in the Republican party stepped up. Because I’ll tell you what, George, everybody believes – in the Republican party, everybody believes that he’s unfit. He lies every time he opens his mouth.

STEPHANOPOULOSYou say that, you say, “everybody believes he’s unfit,” but one of the things the White House points to and the president points to often is just about every poll shows more than 80 support for the president among Republicans.

WALSHThey don’t have an alternative. I’ll tell you what, George – and look, I’m running because he’s unfit. Somebody needs to step up and there needs to be an alternative. The country is sick of this guy’s tantrum. He’s a child. Again, the litany – he lies every time he opens his mouth. Look at what’s happened this week. The President of the United States is tweeting us into a recession. I can tell you, George, that most of my former colleagues up on the Hill, they agree privately with everything I’m saying.

WATCH:

 

Walsh has sent what some would consider pretty dicey tweets in the past.

For example…

Obama is a Muslim

Happy New Year!
