Report: Biden Fabricated Story About Afghanistan War, Silver Star Recipient

Published

This is the Democrat party, folks. How embarrassing. Joe should probably stop talking now.

Via Breitbart:

Former Vice President Joe Biden is under fire for fabricating an emotional story about the war in Afghanistan while campaigning in New Hampshire last week.

Biden, whose penchant for confusing times and places has drawn worried whispers from even the staunchest of allies, told a heart wrenching story last Friday about being asked to pin a medal on a reluctant Navy officer. The story, which Biden told to more than 400 voters in Hanover, New Hampshire, quickly made an impact upon everyone in the room.

“A four-star general had asked the then-vice president to travel to Kunar province in Afghanistan, a dangerous foray into ‘godforsaken country’ to recognize the remarkable heroism of a Navy captain,” the Washington Post reported on Thursday. “Some told him it was too risky, but Biden said he brushed off their concerns.”

“We can lose a vice president,” Biden claimed to have said when asked to make the trip. “We can’t lose many more of these kids. Not a joke.”

As Biden recollected, the Navy captain “rappelled down a 60-foot ravine under fire and retrieved the body of an American comrade, carrying him on his back.” When the captain’s superiors wanted to honor his bravery with a “Silver Star,” the officer refused as it “felt like a failure” because his comrade had died.

“He said, ‘Sir, I don’t want the damn thing!’” said Biden, his “jaw clenched” and “voice rising to a shout,” according to the Post. “’Do not pin it on me, Sir! Please, Sir. Do not do that! He died. He died!’”

The raw emotion Biden exhibited when telling the harrowing story of bravery and loss left those in attendance “silent.”

“This is the God’s truth,” the former vice president added. “My word as a Biden.”

The only problem, as the Post reported, was that “almost every detail in the story appears to be incorrect.”:

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.

Upon further investigation, the paper concluded that Biden had conflated three separate stories, including one in which he actually “did pin a medal on a heartbroken soldier, Army Staff Sgt. Chad Workman, who didn’t believe he deserved the award.”

“In the space of three minutes, 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,” the Post elaborated. Continue Reading

Blasey Ford’s Friend: I Was Threatened With ‘Smear Campaign’ If I Didn’t Back Kavanaugh Story

Published

on

Color me shocked. Actual journalism and the uncovering of facts are coming out over the book written by two New York Times journalists as a hit job against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and you will never believe where it is coming from… CBS. They claim to have the “real bombshell” the Times’ initial report missed. And they are right.

The long-time “close friend” of Christine Blasey Ford, who Ford named as a potential witness to the alleged sexual assault by Brett Kavanaugh back in high school, not only says she does not believe Ford’s accusation, but told the FBI that allies of Ford threatened her with a smear campaign to change her story. How vile is that? No wonder they are no longer friends. Because she would not lie for Blasey Ford and the left they threatened to take her out. So typical.

From The Daily Wire:

“Leland Keyser, a long-time “close friend” of Ford, is one of four people Ford named as supposedly being at the alleged party where she said Kavanaugh tried to force himself on her. In its report Monday, CBS Evening News notes that with Keyser’s first public statements on her friend’s allegations, which she gave in an interview with Times reporters Robin Pogrebin and Kate Kelly, all four of the people Ford claims were at the party now flatly deny that it ever happened.

“As The Daily Wire reported Monday, Keyser also says that Ford’s allies attempted to pressure her to change the story, telling the FBI that those allies even threatened to mount a smear campaign against her if she didn’t — a claim previously revealed by Mollie Hemingway and Carrie Severino in their book, “Justice on Trial: The Kavanaugh Confirmation and the Future of the Supreme Court.”

“In a tweet Monday promoting the CBS report, CBS’s Jan Crawford underscored the “real bombshell” highlighted by the network (h/t Ed Morrissey): “We report tonight the real bombshell: Christine Ford’s close HS friend (who Ford says was at the party when Kavanaugh allegedly assaulted her) said Ford’s story is not believable and told the FBI Ford’s allies pressured her, threatened her with a smear campaign to say otherwise.”

“As The Daily Wire reported Monday, Hemingway and Severino’s book, which was published in July but largely ignored by the media, unlike the new Times reporters’ book, referenced the alleged attempt to pressure Keyser. In a report for The Federalist Monday, Hemingway summarized the revelations in their book that the Times reporters confirmed and elaborated upon:

The authors also acknowledge what had previously been reported in “Justice on Trial,” about the efforts of mutual friends to get her to change her testimony to be more supportive of Blasey Ford. The reporters say that some of Blasey Ford’s friends “had grown frustrated with Keyser. Her comments about the alleged Kavanaugh incident had been too limited, some of them felt and did not help their friend’s case. Surely, given what a close friend Keyser had been, she could say more to substantiate Ford’s testimony and general veracity, even if she could not corroborate Ford’s more specific memories.”

A group text was formed in which friends such as Cheryl Amitay and Lulu Gonella discussed how to get her to say something more helpful to the cause. An unnamed man on the text suggested that they defame her as an addict. Keyser has been in recovery for some time, as her friends know and as has previously been reported.

Amitay answered, “Leland is a major stumbling block.” While asserting she didn’t want her to make anything up out of whole cloth, she offered ideas for things that could sound supportive of Ford’s story, such as that she’d been in similar situations with Blasey Ford that summer.

“I was told behind the scenes that certain things could be spread about me if I didn’t comply,” Keyser told the reporters, a stunning admission of the pressure to which she was subjected to by Blasey Ford’s allies.

Keyser said that Blasey Ford’s story of the alleged assault “didn’t make any sense.” “It would be impossible for me to be the only girl at a get-together with three guys, have her leave, and then not figure out how she’s getting home,” Keyser recalled. “I just really didn’t have confidence in the story.”

On Monday evening, President Trump said during a rally in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, that The New York Times will “never recover” from its mistake regarding the allegations against Kavanaugh. “They’ve taken the old grey lady and broken her down, destroyed her virtue, and ruined her reputation. She can never recover and will never return to greatness under current management,” the president commented. He’s certainly right about that.

This was simply a vicious political hit job to keep Brett Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court because of his views on abortion and other matters. But it has backfired big-time as lie after lie has been exposed. The left won’t let it go though and dementedly go on about impeachment over these lies. It didn’t work and it further discredited the media and the left.

No wonder Americans no longer trust the media. CBS should be commended for their actual journalism here.

Kamala Harris Wants Mandatory Buyback Of ‘Assault Weapons’ – Have ‘No Place’ In Society

Published

on

...

* By

Democrats just can’t help their tyrant selves. The gun battle is a battle the left will never ever win. No matter how hard they try. The majority of this country is armed.

Good luck trying to pry guns from American hands… It’s not going to happen, Kamala.

Via Daily Caller:

Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris has become the latest presidential candidate to say that she will force Americans to relinquish their assault weapons.

However, she’s prepared to “buy back” the rifles and “give people their value” for the confiscated firearm, Harris told an audience member Monday at “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.” Harris also said that “we need to do buy backs” when asked what her policy on assault weapons would be.

“Great question I do believe that we need to do buy backs, and I’ll tell you why. First of all, let’s be clear about what assault weapons are they have been designed to kill a lot of human beings quickly. They are weapons of war with no place on the streets of a civil society,” Harris said.

Harris went further, saying that if she could not get the legislation through Congress to ban the further sale of assault weapons, she is “prepared to take executive action” to do so.

“I’ve seen assault weapons kill babies and police officers so, one, I’ll tell you when elected president, if the United States Congress continues to fail to have the courage to do something about this, I’m prepared to take executive action and put in place a ban on the importation of assault weapons into our country.”

Former Texas Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke has also supported mandatory assault weapon buybacks, saying “Hell, yes” he is prepared to take away guns. O’Rourke insisted it wouldn’t be necessary for federal government agents to go door to door to seize guns because he believes Americans will comply with the proposed law.

But that wouldn’t address those weapons that are currently owned by Americans, so Harris thinks “a buyback program is a good idea.” She promised to move quickly on the issue if she becomes the next president.

“And so, I’m telling you, when elected, if Congress fails to act, I’ll give them 100 days to put a bill on my desk for signature. And if they do not it, I will put it in place by executive action a comprehensive background check requirement and a ban on the assault weapons and importation of assault weapons into our country. I’m done.”
