The man cannot tell where truth ends and lying begins. Speaking at a rally in South Carolina on Saturday, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden did it again: He conflated some of his real history with enough fantasy to make his candidacy more appealing to his audience. He told his audience of supporters, “I got started out of an HBCU (historically black college/university), Delaware State.”
He didn’t attend Delaware State but the University of Delaware, instead.
His recollection of his education was muddled. While he did graduate from the University of Delaware, it’s clear that he was more interested in playing football and entertaining the ladies than studying, graduating 506th in a class of 688 with just a “C” average. Biden claimed that he received three degrees but later recanted when confronted with the facts: “I said three and I should have said two.” But even that was incorrect: He earned a single Bachelor of Arts degree in history and political science.
Somehow, however, that was enough for Biden to earn a full ride scholarship to Syracuse University, graduating “in the top half of my class in law school,” according to the presidential candidate. When James Dickenson looked into the matter more closely, he wrote in the Washington Post that Biden attended law school on a half-scholarship based not on academic prowess but on financial need, graduating near the bottom of his class, at 76 out of 85 students.
Biden had trouble remembering when he got involved in the civil rights movement and misremembered his role in it. In August he spoke at Limestone College in South Carolina, telling the students, “I never thought coming out of the civil rights movement that I’d see people walking out in the fields, carrying torches.” But Haris Alic, writing for Breitbart, said that “no record exists [that] he was part of the civil rights movement throughout the 1960s. In fact, after his graduating [from] law school in 1968, there is no mention of Biden being active in the civil rights movement, let alone serving as one of its leaders.”
In August, during a campaign stop in New Hampshire, Biden repeated a war story canard that he had milked for years:
This guy climbed down a ravine, carried this guy up on his back under fire. The general wanted me to pin the Silver Star on him. I got up there, and this is the God's truth, my word as a Biden. He stood at attention. I went to pin it on him. He said, “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!”
But, according to the Washington Post, “Almost every detail in the story appears to be incorrect.… The former vice president has jumbled elements of at least three actual events into one story of bravery, compassion and regret that never happened.”
Worse, when confronted with the lie, Biden doubled down: “The central point [of the story] is it was absolutely accurate what I said.”
Alana Goodman has made a living keeping track of Biden’s lies. Writing for the Washington Examiner, Goodman noted that Biden “claimed twice recently that he met with Parkland, Florida, shooting survivors when he was vice president, despite the fact that he was already out of office when the attack took place.” In 1988, he was forced to abandon his first go at running for president “after he was found to have exaggerated his academic record, plagiarized a law school essay, and used quotes from other politicians in his speeches without attribution.”
Goodman then noted a number of other crimes of exaggeration, omission, or fakery indulged in by the former vice president:
• Biden said his helicopter was “forced down” near Osama Bin Laden’s lair in Afghanistan.
Bragged Biden: “If you want to know where al Qaeda lives, you want to know where bin Laden is, come back to Afghanistan with me. Come back to the area where my helicopter was forced down with a three-star general and three senators at 10,500 feet in the middle of those mountains. I can tell you where they are.”
In fact, the helicopter landed to wait out a snowstorm, according to the Associated Press.
• Biden said he was a coal miner.
Claimed Biden in 2008: “I hope you won’t hold it against me, but I am a hard-coal miner, anthracite coal, Scranton, Pennsylvania. It’s nice to be back in coal country.”
He later admitted to the canard, claiming that “I might be president now if it weren’t for the fact that I said I had an uncle who was a coal miner. Turns out I didn’t have anybody [himself or an uncle] in the coal mines.… [The lie] didn’t work.”
• Biden said he was “shot at” in Iraq
In 2007, Biden said: “Let’s start telling the truth. Number one, you take all the troops out, you better have helicopters ready to take those 3,000 civilians inside the Green Zone where I have been seven times and shot at.”
In fact, Biden was staying at a hotel in the Green Zone when a mortar landed several hundred yards away.
• Biden said he criticized President George W. Bush during lengthy private meetings in the Oval Office
Biden claimed in 2009 that he spent “a lot of hours alone” with Bush and rebuked him face to face over his foreign policy decisions: “I remember President Bush saying to me one time in the Oval Office: ‘Well, Joe, I’m a leader.’ And I said: ‘Mr. President, turn around and look behind you. No one is following.”
Candida Wolff, Bush’s White House liason to Congress, told Fox News: “The president would never sit through two hours of Joe Biden. I don’t ever remember Biden being in the Oval Office. He was such a blowhard on all that stuff — there wasn’t a reason to bring him in.”
Kevin Williamson, writing for the National Review, said that “if Biden is lying with malice aforethought, then he ought to be considered morally disqualified for the office. If he is senescent, then he obviously is unable to perform the duties associated with the presidency.… The evidence points more toward moral disability than mental disability.”
If William Shakespeare is right — “to thine own self be true, and it must follow, as the night the day, thou canst not be false to any man” — what is one to do with a man who can’t tell the difference?

Biden Denied Communion for His Pro-abortion Stance
republished below in full unedited for informational, educational and research purposes:
While on a political junket in South Carolina over the weekend, Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden stopped by the St. Anthony Catholic Church in Florence on Sunday morning for Mass. The Reverend Robert E. Morey refused to serve communion to the former vice president, explaining:
Sadly, this past Sunday, I had to refuse Holy Communion to former Vice President Joe Biden. Holy Communion signifies we are one with God, each other and the church. Our actions should reflect that. Any public figure who advocates for abortion places himself … outside of Church teaching.
But Biden claims he agrees with the church’s teaching. He just doesn’t want to impose his views on anyone else. Said Biden in an interview in 2015: “I’m prepared to accept that at the moment of conception there’s human life and being, but I’m not prepared to say that to other God-fearing [and] non-God-fearing people [who] have a different view.”
He also believes that not only is Roe v. Wade the law of the land despite the faux “right to privacy” conjured in that Supreme Court decision, he also wants to codify it into federal law just in case the Court decides it made a mistake, and reverses its 1973 decision.
In fact, in 1981 Biden voted for an amendment allowing states to overturn Roe v. Wade but the next year voted against the same amendment. He also has pledged, if elected president, to appoint justices to the Supreme Court who support that flawed decision.
In addition, Biden has supported the Hyde Amendment — which prohibits using taxpayer monies to pay for abortions — right up until he changed his mind last June. He had the temerity to suggest, in public, that the Hyde Amendment was a good thing, and the roof fell in. Spokespersons for Planned Parenthood and NARAL Pro-Choice America railed against his position, with the president of NARAL, Ilyse Hogue, claiming that his support for the Hyde Amendment was “discrimination against poor women and women of color.” Planned Parenthood stated that Biden’s support for the rule was “harmful” to women, and he caved, declaring that “times had changed.”
Biden now is promising to “eliminate all of the changes that this President [Trump] made” to family planning programs, and that he would, as president, increase funding for Planned Parenthood, the nation’s primary killer of the unborn.
On the issue, the Catholic Church is unbending. As SC News columnist Matthew Christian explained:
Communion is one of seven sacraments in the Roman Catholic Church….
In communion, parishioners receive the Holy Eucharist, a wafer and wine that when consecrated becomes the body and blood of Jesus, according to Catholic doctrine. In order to receive it, a Catholic must be in the state of grace, have gone to confession since his or her most recent mortal sin, have a belief in the doctrine of transubstantiation (a belief that the wafer and wine become the body and blood of Jesus), observe the Eucharist fast and not be under censure.
The Vatican declares that “Human life must be respected and protected absolutely from the moment of conception. From the first moment of his existence, a human being must be recognized as having the rights of a person — among which are the inviolable right of every innocent being to life.”
The Vatican added:
Since the first century the Church has affirmed the moral evil of every procured abortion.
This teaching has not changed and remains unchangeable.
Direct abortion, that is to say, abortion willed either as an end or a means, is gravely contrary to the moral law:
You shall not kill the embryo by abortion and shall not cause the newborn to perish.
God, the Lord of life, has entrusted to men the noble mission of safeguarding life, and men must carry it out in a manner worthy of themselves.
Life must be protected with the utmost care from the moment of conception: abortion and infanticide are abominable crimes
The Vatican goes further, stating that anyone who “cooperates” in the performance of an abortion can be excommunicated: “Formal cooperation in an abortion constitutes a grave offense. The Church attaches the canonical penalty of excommunication to this crime against human life.”
Biden’s position on abortion clearly promotes the death culture of abortion and Father Morey was certainly within his prerogative to deny Biden the sacrament of communion. The church is also within its prerogative to excommunicate the former vice president for “cooperating” in the crime of taking a life while calling it excusable under the cloak of political correctness.



‘I think people understand it. I think the Ukraine situation’s the same thing,’ he says

Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon believes that former Vice President Joe Biden has been “totally compromised by China.”
When asked by Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade what he thought about Joe Biden and his son Hunter taking money from Ukraine energy company Burisma Holdings, Bannon said “I think it’s corruption.”
“I think worse is China. They took over a billion dollars from China,” Bannon said Monday. “I think Joe Biden is totally compromised by China. I think people understand it. I think the Ukraine situation’s the same thing.”
“[Hunter Biden] got in the Navy with no expertise because of Joe Biden,” Bannon continued. “He got on the board because of connections to Joe Biden. His whole career is around having access to Joe Biden – political corruption.”
In response to the growing backlash over his connections to China and his father’s faltering poll numbers, Hunter Biden released a statement announcing he would be step down from Bohai Harvest RST (BHR) Equity Investment Fund Management Company, a Shanghai-based private-equity fund backed by entities owned by the Chinese government.
“Hunter always understood that his father would be guided, entirely and unequivocally, by established U.S. policy, regardless of its effects on Hunter’s professional interests,” according to the statement. “He never anticipated the barrage of false charges against both him and his father by the President of the United States.”
In 2013, Hunter Biden joined an official U.S. delegation to China, according to multiple reports. Ten days later, his private equity firm Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC. inked a $1 billion deal with the bank of China, that was eventually increased to $1.5 billion.

New Reports Indicate More Possible Joe Biden Influence On Behalf of Hunter
There's reports of two cases of Biden as a high-level US Senator in which he appears to have used influence to help steer government policy in directions that would help firms for which his son, Hunter, worked.
