Vice President Joseph R. Biden’s claim that he heard the gunshots of a 2006 school massacre while playing golf is raising questions about his veracity or his memory. Mr. Biden told a meeting of mayors in Washington Thursday that he was about a quarter-mile away from an Amish schoolhouse on Oct. 2, 2006, when a gunman shot and killed five students and wounded five others. “I happened to be literally — probably, it turned out, to be a quarter of a mile [away] at an outing when I heard gunshots in the woods,” Mr. Biden recounted.
Comments: I wonder if Biden, 0bama and the rest of his comrades are even capable of speaking one word that is true. What a contemptible jerk Biden is. It is appalling how low our standards have dropped for who is acceptable to serve in our government.
Democrats make stuff up -- all the time -- and the media never question them on it. Conservatives tell the truth and their remarks are twisted, misrepresented, and "fact checked" by the media into "lies." They mock truth tellers and admire congenital liars. How about "...We don´t have a spending problem..." from Agent Zero, our Fabicator-in-Chief? What? No "fact check?"
Biteme is just trying to stay in league with his leader zippy. He can´t let zippy get too many lies in front or he loses the nassau bet and has to pay up at the end of the month. But this story was a double bogey as it was way too easy to validate. Work harder Biteme--you are losing ground.
I had mentioned the night before last when I first read this story here that Biden was Lying.... Again. Appears at least ONE News Media outfit picked up on the very Lie. Using Kids as Political Props appears to be Standard Operating Procedure for this Administration.
My little local newspaper ran an article about how the schools are trying to teach students that character does count. I thought a few years ago (Clinton era) character didn´t count. Maybe we´re getting a turnaround in this country because people are finally just getting fed up with politicians and the LSM who just lie and cover up and think nothing of it. Maybe we´ve almost hit bottom. We have yet to hear who gave the "stand down" order for Libya.
It amazes me that, in this world of nano second communications technology, GPS, etc, idiots like Biden have yet to figure out that pretty much everything can be validated or refuted. Especially the movements of a US senator.
Every night when I lay down to go to sleep, I consider what will happen to me if there is a nuclear attack. Me and my loved ones will be reduced to ash while the likes of Joe Biden, Pilosi, Feinstein and others like them will be rushed to a safe haven to insure the survival of society.
This is nothing more that SOP for Dims. They can stand before a microphone and spout all sorts of data and figures, tell us that most if not all Americans agree with them, etc. and the drive-by media will do absolutely nothing to verify what they are saying. There are, however, some of we conservatives that know they are lying (yes, I use that word deliberately) simply because their mouth is moving.
Well, he´s a Democrat and a Liberal- they believe reality is what ever they say it is. He says he heard the shots, in his mind, he did hear the shots- he says he did. Like all the agenda driven lies about global baloney warming and also the myth that guns are stalking people, rather than people stalking people. It´s what Liberal do. Want more honesty in our government officials? Quit electing fantasy believing liberals to office.
Only the Washington Times made the effort to fact check. And they have clearly debunked Biden´s story. Biden claimed he was playing golf and his party heard the shots and thought they were coming from hunters. " Rodney King, the golf pro at Moccasin Run, said Friday he was working at the course on the day of the shooting and never saw Mr. Biden, who was then a U.S. senator " . The pro checked the course database and Biden is not in there. The course is a public one , unlikely for Senators to use. The more exclusive private golf course is 10 miles away. There is a shooting range close to the public course where target practice can be heard. The shooting happened inside the school. The school was amidst agricultural fields , not woods . Biden´s age ( 70 ) and history of two craniotomies for ruptured aneurysms is never mentioned by the media. If a Republican at Biden´s age and with his medical history constantly fabricated events , the allegations of possible brain damage and the onset of Alzheimer´s would have been promoted by the media years ago.
Every time he opens his mouth he says something ridiculous or a lie. And you think it is isolated until you hear what the Delaware legislators propose for magazine capacity restrictions. Only a person like Joe and his media pets could come up with the Delaware lunacy of keeping magazines 20 feet from the guns and not taking them out of the house. STUPID
If they checked his Fruit of the Looms afterwards and they were dirty, I would believe him. Otherwise, just another Joe story made up to enhance his position, much like Barry having had imaginary girlfriends when we know he prefers the company of young male athletes.
What is it about liberal democrats they have to insinuate themselves into horrific events? What good does it do them? Do they think it makes them look like regular people in our eyes, when we know they are phony to the bone?
he first two months of Obamacare created a rare convergence between supporters and opponents of the law: Everyone agreed that the rollout was a disaster. The consensus reached all the way up to President Obama himself, who went so far as to list the "poor execution on my administration’s part" alongside the GOP´s "reckless shutdown" as reasons that "frustrations with Washington are at an all-time high." It was like an Obamacare miracle. But with HealthCare.gov improving, the convergence is ending. For Obamacare´s supporters, the IT problems really were IT problems. Now that the Web site is working the law will
Kanye West speaking with SaturdayNightOnline.com host Garrett, West Saturday night “Like, I’m just giving of my body on the stage; I’m putting my life at risk, literally!” “When I think about when I’m on the ‘Can’t Tell Me Nothing,’ and ‘Coldest Winter’ moment, like that mountain goes really, really high. And if I slipped… You never know. And I think about it. I think about my family and I’m like, wow, this is like being a police officer or something, in war or something.”
Kevin Kolbye, Assistant Special Agent in Charge for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Dallas, served as the on-scene commander for the Benghazi investigation but has not yet testified before Congress about what he knows. Republican Congressman Frank Wolf wants to know why. Kolbye addressed the GovSec West Conference in Dallas in late November and discussed various aspects of the Benghazi investigation with attendees. During his presentation, Kolbye noted that, contrary to initial reports, FBI assets were on the scene in Benghazi within a few days after the attack. Breitbart News reported that story when it broke.
On Sunday, a media reporter for the Washington Post said he believed that MSNBC had fired host Martin Bashir because conservatives were relentless and did not quit in hammering Bashir and MSNBC for Bashir´s suggestion that someone should urinate and defecate in the mouth of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. Bashir resigned from MSNBC last week, nearly a month after he made his scripted remarks on his MSNBC program. Appearing on CNN´s Reliable Sources with host Brian Stelter, the Post´s Paul Farhi said "the outrage was from the right, the idea that Sarah Palin and, by the way, a woman, obviously was
Firebrand Texas Republican Rep. Steve Stockman on Monday mounted a surprise primary challenge to Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), setting the stage for the latest potentially explosive battle between a tea party darling and an incumbent firmly backed by the GOP establishment. Stockman, a far-right conservative who has called for the president’s impeachment, filed for the seat minutes before the 6 p.m. local deadline, confirmed Spencer Yeldell, a spokesman for the Republican Party of Texas. Cornyn — with cash-on-hand clocking in at nearly $7 million — is still the heavy favorite, but Stockman’s entry into the race could force
On Monday, the National Journal reported that "documents filed by other groups show that two labor organizations, the International Union of Operating Engineers and the Laborers´ International Union of North America, directed a combined $400,000 to the Republican group [the Defending Main Street super PAC] in September and October." The Defending Main Street super PAC was organized at the end of 2012 by former Congressman Steve LaTourette (R-OH), and has very publicly declared war on the Tea Party. It is affiliated with and has offices at the same location as the Republican Main Street Project, which LaTourette currently
New York Republican Rep. Peter King, who has been vocal about his interest in running for president in 2016, won´t shy away from a fight with another tough-talking Northeastern politician. “You should ask Chris Christie if me being in the race disqualifies him," King told City & State when asked whether the New Jersey governor´s likely candidacy will preclude his own. King announced his interest in the race earlier this year but hasn´t yet made an official decision to enter, and many observers believe Christie´s candidacy would overshadow King´s, as they´re both tough-taking moderate Republicans from neighboring states. King has so far
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
A veteran Washington adviser who has worked for four Presidents on both sides of the political aisle said that the stunning Government Accountability Report report that found President Barack Obama has not had a one-on-one meeting with Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius since the passage of Obamacare over three years ago is an indictment of the entire White House operation and shows that the Obama administration has bordered on "malfeasance." "I have no doubt the White House is right, that Secretary Sebelius was in several group meetings with the president about health care," Gergen caveated, "but the whole
President Barack Obama’s Facebook page on Saturday posted a message honoring the dead from Pearl Harbor—accompanied by a picture of Obama descending the stairs next to the Pearl Harbor Memorial. The picture barely fits the name of the Arizona Memorial so it can frame Obama in the foreground. The post´s statement reads: Today, with solemn pride and reverence, let us remember those who fought and died at Pearl Harbor, acknowledge everyone who carried their legacy forward, and reaffirm our commitment to upholding the ideals for which they served. President Obama The Obama Administration´s current shipbuilding plan shrinks the size of
Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
