Joe Biden Continues to Lie About Drunk Driver Killing His First Wife

Joe Biden has for years claimed that his first wife and his daughter were killed by a “drunk driver” in 1972. But this appears to be untrue.

Along with the claim that Joe Biden had a “blue-collar” upbringing — he had a decidedly upper class (though not “rich”) childhood — Joe Biden has for years claimed that his first wife and his daughter were killed by a “drunk driver” in 1972. However, closer examination of the records proves that the man driving the truck that slammed into the Biden family car was never charged with drunken driving. So, why has the media allowed this perception that Biden lost his wife to a drunk driver to persist?

As late as 2007 Biden said that the man who was involved in the fatal crash that killed his wife and daughter was a “guy who allegedly … drank his lunch” before he got behind the wheel of his truck and in 2001 the TV show Inside Edition aired a tape of Biden saying the truck driver “stopped to drink instead of drive.” Additionally, several media outlets have included the drunk driver claim in their bios of the Senator from Delaware.

This drunk driving accusation, though, is simply a Biden creation and every time this claim is uttered it pains the family of the poor, maligned man involved in the tragic accident with Biden’s family, truck driver Curtis C. Dunn. Gannett owned DelewareOnline reports the anguish that Biden’s continued lie causes the man’s family every time it is uttered.

“To see it coming from [Biden’s] mouth, I just burst into tears,” Dunn’s daughter, Glasgow resident Pamela Hamill, 44, said Wednesday. “My dad was always there for us. Now we feel like we should be there for him because he’s not here to defend himself.”

In truth, there was no finding of alcohol being involved in this tragic incident. In fact, some investigators thought at the time that the accident was caused by Biden’s wife pulling out into the intersection not having seen Dunn’s truck bearing down upon her. It was simply a horrible accident with no blame saying Dunn was at fault, much less drunk.

According to the research that DelewareOnline did for the story, neither Biden’s book nor his website bio contains that drunk driver reference but Biden has delivered the claim in several appearances.

The New York Times reported the 2007 crowd at the University of Iowa grew silent as Biden gave his version of what happened that day.

“Let me tell you a little story,” The newspaper quoted Biden as saying. “I got elected when I was 29, and I got elected November the 7th. And on Dec. 18 of that year, my wife and three kids were Christmas shopping for a Christmas tree. A tractor-trailer, a guy who allegedly — and I never pursued it — drank his lunch instead of eating his lunch, broadsided my family and killed my wife instantly, and killed my daughter instantly, and hospitalized my two sons, with what were thought to be at the time permanent, fundamental injuries.”

Biden told a similar story when addressing an audience at the Bob Carpenter Center at the University of Delaware a few days after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

“It was an errant driver who stopped to drink instead of drive and hit a tractor-trailer, hit my children and my wife and killed them,” Biden said, according to a transcript archived on his Senate Web site.

Now, I suppose for a politician looking for the sympathy vote, saying your wife was killed by a drunk is better than saying that your wife made a fatal mistake behind the wheel. But the truth says something else, entirely contradicting Biden’s great campaign soundbites.

“The rumor about alcohol being involved by either party, especially the truck driver, is incorrect,” said Jerome O. Herlihy, a Delaware Superior Court judge who was chief deputy attorney general and worked with crash investigators in 1972.

Still, there have been several news sources that have included the drunk driver aspect in Biden bio reports.

For instance, Cristina Chang of the Huffington Post posted on September 10, 2008:

But Delaware’s Senator-elect would face a more difficult challenge soon after his election, when a drunk driver struck the car carrying his family, killing his wife Neilia and daughter Naomi and severely wounding sons Hunter and Beau.

The Economist Magazine published a story on August 28th saying the same basic thing:

He endured an unspeakable personal tragedy, shortly after his first run for the Senate in 1972, when his wife and daughter were killed by a drunk driver.

And NPR initially published a Biden bio with the same drunk driver claim, but later corrected the story with this disclaimer:

Correction: Earlier versions of this story said that a drunk driver was responsible for the deaths of Sen. Biden’s wife and daughter. There is no evidence that the driver was drunk.

Kudos to NPR for correcting the record.

But, here is the thing. Biden himself has made this claim in public at least two times — most likely far more. So, why has the media basically stayed mum about this lie? Isn’t it important for the American people to know what sort of man Biden is? Why are they ignoring this story?

As Thomas Lifson of the American Spectator says, “Is this an attempt to exploit the death of his first wife for political gain? The thought is sickening. Even if Biden was initially misinformed, he and his campaign have allowed a lie to propagate throughout the media.”

But, should we put the onus on the lying politician as Lifson seems to do, or should we place the onus on the media that should be investigating and illuminating this lie? Of course, it is a disgusting exploitation of his wife’s tragic death but that he uses that tragedy on the campaign trail isn’t the problem. In fact, it is a legitimate segment of his life’s story perfectly proper to use for campaign fodder. What isn’t legitimate is inventing aspects of that story out of whole cloth to make it seem a more sympathetic tale instead of sticking to the truth.

Isn’t the news about getting to the truth?

Apparently not because, thus far, they are letting Biden get away with a whopper.

Joe Biden Unveils New Quest to Find Way to ‘Transport Wind’ Across America

If the Democrats continue with the nomination of Joe Biden, they deserve whatever they get in November.

Published

on

You can’t even make this stuff up anymore.

Joe Biden is losing it.  Even the most staunch Democrats are beginning to wonder if now is the time to pull the plug on his 2020 candidacy, as his nonstop stream of utter gibberish turns from funny to tragic right before our very eyes.

A few weeks ago, Biden told a female town hall attendee that she was a “lying, dog-faced pony soldier”.

If you thought that it couldn’t get any worse than that, Biden this week told a popular African American radio host that, if he was considering voting for Donald Trump, ‘you ain’t black’.

Now, as if things couldn’t get any weirder, the former veep is now yapping about how we need a system that can transport energy across the nation. 

Former Vice President and presumptive 2020 Democrat presidential nominee Joe Biden said in an interview on CNBC’s Squawk Box on Friday that as president he would move away from domestic fossil fuel production and then went on to call for a nationwide system to distribute coal.

“I would gradually move out of the position of relying on oil and gas, excuse me, on coal,” Biden said. “No one is going to build another coal fired plant. Period. No matter what the law is.”

This sounds like a typical talking point of the eco-minded left.

Then, just a few moments later, Biden not only contradicted himself but also seemed to have forgotten about the nation’s railroads and the fact that wind occurs everywhere.

When host Joe Kernen asked Biden how he would preserve the high-paying jobs in the oil and gas industry, Biden did not directly answer the question. He said:

“We should become the net exporter of the new technology by investing the $40 billion in — the $400 billion I’m proposing in research and development for new ways to absorb carbon. New ways, you know, [to] make sure that we have a system nationwide that can transmit coal and wind across the country.

“But we’re not investing in those things Joe. We’re not investing in any of it. They all create jobs.

“And by the way, they don’t wind does not cause cancer. Windmills.”

If the Democrats continue with the nomination of Joe Biden, they deserve whatever they get in November.

GOP Senator Tim Scott Blasts Joe Biden for Outrageously Saying You Can’t Be Black Unless You Vote for Biden

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott slammed Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden for his proclamation about blacks.

Published

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott slammed Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden for his proclamation that you can’t be black unless you vote for Biden in coming election.

Scott, who is black, called Biden “arrogant” for his whitesplaning on who is allowed to be black and who is not.

Scott was incensed he heard Biden’s comments. The former vice president made the comments on Friday on the Breakfast Club radio broadcast co-hosted by rapper Charlamagne tha God.

“If you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” Biden told Charlamagne after the radio host said: “It’s a long way until November, we’ve got more questions.”

Scott was shocked by the comments.

“That is the most condescending, arrogant comment I’ve heard for a very long time. And that’s saying something,” the lawmaker told Fox Business host Stuart Varney, pointing out Biden’s history.

“The man who sponsored and led the charge on the 1990’s crime bill that locked up more African-American males than any other piece of legislation,” he said.

“And President Trump comes along, and through his criminal justice reform, corrects the absolute mistakes made by Joe Biden, for him to make such an arrogant, ridiculous comment,” he added.

“If you think about the numbers, 1.3 million African-Americans voted for Trump. He’s saying to 1.3 million African-Americans that you’re not black?” Scott asked. “Who in the heck does he think he is? That is the most arrogant, outrageous comment that I’ve heard in a very long time and I take offense to that.”

Later, in a tweet, Scott said it was “par for the course for Democrats to take the black community for granted.”

Biden Campaign Reeling After Former VP Says ‘You Ain’t Black’ if You’re Voting for Trump

If Joe Biden’s campaign wasn’t on life support before, it is now, and the former veep himself may be the one to pull the figurative plug.

Published

on

Joe Biden’s campaign has been on life support ever since he became the presumptive Democratic nominee for 2020.

It’s as though the Democratic Party immediately regretted their decision after Biden, who had been holding it together by a thin strand before capturing the nomination, went completely off the deep end.  His virtual campaign stops have been unabashed nightmares of cringeworthy moments and lots of honking geese.  (Someone in that campaign surely knows how to close a window, you would think).

Now, as if to make it a point to be the worst campaigner of the 21st century, Joe Biden has told African Americans that they “ain’t black” if they are considering voting for Donald Trump.

Joe Biden faced a swift backlash on Friday for suggesting during a contentious radio interview with host Charlamagne tha God that those having a hard time “figuring out” whether to support him or President Trump “ain’t black.”

The dustup occurred 17 minutes into the former vice president’s interview on “The Breakfast Club” – a nationally broadcast morning talk show popular with black listeners – when a Biden aide tried to end the interview, prompting the host to charge, “You can’t do that to black media.”

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee stressed that his wife had an upcoming engagement, and suggested he would have to go whether dealing with “white media” or “black media.”

“Uh, oh … I’m in trouble,” he joked as he referred to making his wife late. Biden and his wife Jill Biden share the same studio in the basement of their home in Wilmington, Del.

Then things took a seriously bizarre turn.

After Charlamagne tha God, who is black, then asked Biden to come back on the program again and the former vice president agreed, the host added, “It’s a long way to November. We’ve got more questions.”

That’s when Biden dove into a rapid-fire defense of his record with the black community.

“I tell you if you have a problem figuring out whether you’re for me or Trump, then you ain’t black,” he said.

If Joe Biden’s campaign wasn’t on life support before, it is now, and the former veep himself may be the one to pull the figurative plug.

GOP Candidate for Congress Laura Loomer Slams Big Tech for Partnering with Chinese Slave State

Laura Loomer blasted the tech industry for working hand-in-hand with with the Chinese slave state to maximize outlandish profits.

Published

on

Laura Loomer, the Republican candidate for congress in Florida’s 21st District, blasted the tech industry for working hand-in-hand with with the Chinese slave state to maximize their outlandish profits.

Loomer, of course, was the object of attacks by the left-wing, Big Tech industry that branded her a threat merely because she is a conservative.

“They want to try to kill us in a digital manner by subjecting us to a digital gulag, but look what they’re doing in the countries which they’re outsourcing all of their manufacturing to and then these countries like China where they’re getting all of their executives and people to serve on their board,” Loomer told Infowars’ Alex Jones.

Loomer pointed out that Big Tech paints her as an Isalmophobe. But she is, in fact, anti-Sharia law, not anti-Muslim. On the other hand, Big Tech works with the Chinese and the Chinese have been oppressing its Muslim Uyghurs minorities for decades.

“Nobody’s doing anything about it,” Loomer added. “I completely feel your pain.”

Loomer noted that the media has been lying about her beliefs regarding Islam.

“I find it extremely ironic and hypocritical how Big Tech banned me everywhere with false accusations that I am ‘anti-Muslim,’ when I’m not. I’m anti-Sharia,” Loomer said.

She added: “You know who is anti-Muslim though? Big Tech. Big Tech does business with the Chinese communist party which is literally putting innocent Muslim Uyghurs in concentration camps where they are being sterilized and forced to be slave laborers in factories where they are manufacturing products for Big Tech! THAT IS WHAT YOU CALL ANTI MUSLIM!!!”

Indeed, China brutally oppresses its Uyghurs minorities. The red commies imprison them, torture them, separate them from their children, and kill them at will. Their religion is also prohibited. They are also penned up in work camps where they are worked nearly to death in areas far from their homes.

A 2020 report by the Australian Strategic Policy institute said that “more than 80,000 Uyghurs were transferred out of Xinjiang to work in factories across China between 2017 and 2019, some of them were sent directly from detention camps” under “conditions that strongly suggest forced labor.”

As Reclaim The Net added:

Apple includes OFILM factories in its list of suppliers. Lenovo also confirmed obtaining screens, cameras and fingerprint scanners from OFILM, and denied knowledge of these conditions. LG and Dell said they had “no evidence” of forced labor in their supply chains but are currently investigating accusations.

And they claim Loomer is the bad guy!

Loomer also called for big social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter to stop banning their users.

“While Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg are obsessed with ‘community standards and conversational health’ as outlined in their ever changing ‘terms of service’, they are isolating and endangering segments of our population from critical and time sensitive information that will literally save lives and prevent the spread of this virus,” Loomer said.

MUST SEE: Creepy Joe’s Latest Virtual Campaign Event Hilariously Plagued by Canada Geese

Biden can’t catch a break…at least not from these black-beaked waterfowl.

Published

on

While Joe Biden may be in fierce opposition to the idea of building a wall on the southern border, he might now be amendable to the construction of a giant net on the northern border.

The elderly Biden has been struggling mightily on the campaign trail as of late, after adjusting to the new “virtual” model that has become the norm in this era of global pandemic.  Given just how much of Biden’s life has been lived outside of the digital realm, the former Vice President has often appeared as a deer in the headlights during these technically-complicated events.

Of course, this is no great indication of his capability to lead in the modern era, and it has many Democrats questioning whether or not they have made the right choice in presumably nominating Biden for the 2020 race.

His latest online event wasn’t so much plagued by technological SNAFU’s as it was by pesky waterfowl.

While delivering remarks during his campaign event outside on Monday afternoon, Biden was interrupted multiple times by repeated honking from Canada geese at a pond located on the other side of his residence.

Biden had been addressing the Asian American and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) Victory Fund during a live-streamed speech in which he knocked President Trump and accused him of fanning flames of “hate, fear and xenophobia” toward Asian Americans amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The noise was so pervasive that Biden himself was forced to recognize the issue during the event.

“You’re going to hear, there’s a pond on the other side of my property here. A lot of Canadian geese. If you hear them honking away, they’re cheering, that’s what they’re about,” Biden said.

And because you just have to see it to believe it:

Joe Biden’s Poll Numbers Already Slipping Among New York Whites and Young Suburbanites

One might think that Joe Biden would be leading Trump easily in liberal New York, but a new poll finds Joe struggling in Empire State.

Published

on

One might think that Joe Biden would be leading Trump easily in liberal New York, but a new poll finds Joe struggling among key groups in Empire State.

Currently, Biden’s favorability rating is better than Trump’s, 52 percent to 41 percent, but a new Zogby poll finds that Biden is not finding the same surge in support that state Democrats such as Gov. Andrew Cuomo, have enjoyed this month.

Still, Trump is doing better among New Yorkers than Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio, and communist whackjob Representative Alexandria Ocasio Cortez.

Per MSN:

The New York based Zogby Poll and pollster Jonathan Zogby spelled out the problems Biden faces. In his analysis, he said, “On the national front, presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden received a 52% favorable/40% unfavorable rating. What’s worrisome for Biden is he did not receive a majority favorable rating from younger voters aged 18-29 (45% favorable/47% unfavorable), white voters (48% favorable/45% unfavorable), suburban voters (48% favorable/45% unfavorable) and suburban women (49% favorable/42% unfavorable).”

Zogby also noted that the troubles Biden faces in New York may foreshadow the troubles he will have in the rest of the country.

“Joe Biden is struggling in New York,” Zogby wrote, “if you dig deep into the numbers. Even as he enjoys a mini-moment leading in some polls against Trump, New York should be a softball, but he struggles with important groups like younger voters aged 18-29, white voters, suburban voters and suburban women. He really needs to win over the ‘Bernie Bros.’ Could this be a sign of things to come for Biden in other states?”

Remember, this is months ahead of when the main campaign for president will kick off.

It is also long before Trump meets Biden in the upcoming presidential debates that will be televised for millions more Americans will see just what a nothing, empty suit Biden really is.

Biden can’t even get through a softball interview or a scripted appearance without making himself look like a fool. Imagine how badly he’ll do in a live debate!

So, in fact, Biden really has nowhere to go but down.

Why Oppose Mail-In Voting? Nevada’s Massive Mail-In Ballot Mess Shows You

The massive fraud already seen in the State of Nevada shows just why mail-in voting is a disastrous plan.

Published

on

The largest county in the State of Nevada implemented an all mail-in election for the June 9 primary, but the massive fraud already seen shows just why mail-in voting is a disastrous plan.

The county changed its voting procedure out of hysteria about the coronavirus, naturally. But the massive fraud already turning up in the system is a warning bell that should put an end to the left’s drive to replicate this mess across the country.

Per Fox News:

Thousands of ballots have been sent out by the Clark County Election Department to inactive voters – those who have not voted in recent elections, a roster that can include people who either have moved or are deceased – and the envelopes are piling up in post office trays, outside apartment complexes and on community bulletin boards in and around Las Vegas.

The excess ballots have drawn complaints from local residents, who worry that anyone could pick up a ballot off the street and cast a fraudulent vote, as well as from Republican Party officials in the state who see a nefarious motive behind the vote-by-mail system being employed by the Democrat-dominated Clark County Commission.

“What’s going to happen with these things, they’re not secured at all and there are thousands of them just sitting here,” Jenny Trobiani, a postal worker in Clark County who told Fox News that she has seen hundreds of ballots being mailed to inactive voters.

“This just seems fraudulent to me, something stinks here,” she added.

Nevada Republicans are afraid of a repeat of what happened to Republicans in California with the massive wave of unregulated mail-in votes erased their Election Day leads in 2018.

Again Fox:

Despite holding substantial leads on Election Day, many Republican candidates in California saw their advantage shrink, and then disappear, as late-arriving Democratic votes were counted in the weeks following the election. Many observers pointed to the Democrats’ use of ballot harvesting as a key to their success in the elections.

In Orange County, Calif. – once seen as a Republican stronghold in the state – every House seat went to a Democrat after an unprecedented 250,000 vote-by-mail drop-offs were counted, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

“People were carrying in stacks of 100 and 200 of them. We had had multiple people calling to ask if these people were allowed to do this,” Neal Kelley, the registrar for voters in Orange County, said at the time.

These were clearly tens of thousands of fake votes sent in to flood the ballot boxes in California.

Democrats want mail-in voting for two reasons. First, they want to make it easier for Democrats to cheat. Second, they want to undermine the integrity of the ballot box. Why? This is a long-term plan to get Americans to turn against voting to allow government to be self-appointing for all offices. It is the Democrats’ long-term plan to eliminate voting altogether.

After all, America. Democrats think you are not trustworthy and are too stupid to be allowed to vote.
